County Fathers Out to Give Evi

Present Plan of Feeding Prisoner la
Attacked Criminal Case Feet
Th board of supervisors this morn
ing ntar'd in on a retrenchment pol
icy which may eventually jcet the
county on a solid financial footing and
obviate the net;d of continually bor
rowlriK money to pay bills. Not that
any stroke of finance was done to
day, but rather that the mood of the
hqard was to cut. down all bills and ex-pr-nseH.
With this end in view. Sup
ervisor James McQuaid offered the
lollowing resolution which was
"Whereas the county has been sub
jected to much lost in the payment
of excessive and unjust bills and fees
in criminal cases of police magistrates,
justict of the peuce and constables,
now therefore be it
"Kesolved. That the board discon

The next sieji aids retrenchment

Accompanying the resolution was a
letter from Miss Vella Martin, employ, j

commission, in which she stated that
he sheriff at Belleville, 111., feeds the
prisoners for 1 5 l-i cents a day and
gives them a menu which compares
f.'.vorahly with that served here.
The hoard decided to lay the matter
over for more consideration and to
bring it up for final action tomorrow

Another resolution from Supervisor
Wright was in the nature of a censure
for the sheriff's office. It alleged that
prisoners were given too much freedom
and allowed to buy whisky and even to
take it into the Jail with them. Forty
empty flasks, the supervisor said, were
found in one cell. The board adopted
the resolution, which provides that
guards hereafter see to it that such lib
erties are not given prisoners, on pain
of prosecution for the guards.
