Ttao building commission, consisting
of the three county commissioners,
the clerk of courts, the sheriff, the
probate Judge and Mr. Lewis P.
Schaus, held a session all day Wed
nesday at the 'Knox county court
house at which time Mr. Marriott, the
architect, from Columbus was present
and submitted plans for the new Jail.
The commissioners wont OTer the

sented by the architect were not
It was decided to hold another meet
ing of the commission on Tuesday,
February 25, at which time the rerised
plans will be presented to the com.
mission for consideration and It Is
quite likely that, the plans will be
adopted at this meeting.
The matter of the exact location
of the new jail was determined upon,
however, by the commission on Wed
nesday. The new Jail will face on
East Chestnut street In other words
the residence of the sheriff will face
on Chestnut street instead of High
street as was first contemplated. The
matter of facing the structure on
Chasrant street was submitted to veto
and all voted in the aflrmatlre, es
cepting Clerk of Courts Hayes and
Sheriff Woollson, who were firm in
their belief that the residence portion
of tho Jail should face High street
It was further decided that the build
ing should bo 90 feet from High street
and to be built up within 50 feet of the
court house building. The large space
on the Bouth side of the building will
bo available should It ever be neces
sary to construct a new court house.
Tho new Jail building is to be fire
proof and will contain cells of tho lat
est improved styles.

good showing against a foam, of In

first half of tho game tho Columbus
team led by only one point.
Tho local boys played a far stronger
game than they put up against tho
High school team and displayed bet
ter ability in every way. Shots wore
raoro accurate and wero better exe
cuted and the team-work showed
great improvomont. Had Is not boon
necossary for Captain "Tart" Supp to
retiro from tho struggle at tho middle
of tho second half tho locals would,
In all probability, have cunie very near
to "capturing tho cookey". The crowd
was larger than was expected, a fact
which proves tho popularity of the
representative team of tho city.
C. Upham at guard was unable to
take care of his immediate opponent
at all times during the game, and con
sequently, was the unwilling cause of
several points which went the wrong
way. At times, however, he displayed
excellent head-work and brough relief
in several awkward positions. Tho
other four members of the regular
squad played strong, consistent games
and lost only because they were pitted
against a team of men thoroughly
schooled in tho game. Captain Sapp
was the star of the home team.
Gowdy and "Duke", the former at
guard and the latter at center, were
the mainstays of the All Stars and
played superior ball. Both were very
fast and nearly all of tho vlsito.'
points were scored by them.
