dations to improve County Jail and
The following report on the Lau
rens county jail, almshouse and chain
gang was printed in the Fifth Annual
Report of the State Board of Charl
ties and Corrections for 1919, -and just
issued from the printers:
Report on Laurens County Jal.
Sheriff S. C. Reid, Jailer. Visited
May 3, 1919, by Assistant Secretary
lroyles with 'Doputy Sheriff Owens.
'Prisoners, 3 negro males.
As the citizens of the county know,
this plant is entirely unfit for use as
a place of detention for human beings,
and near two years -ago plans were
made to build a new Jail, but for one
reason or allot her these plans were
not plisted at the time, and the money
provided for the pulrpose will not now
carry out the plan as previously
formed. \s to the plant itself ther;e
is nothing to say except to recoiitend
that tihe Commissioners and the Comn
ty Delegation raise the additional
funds ieevssary to build a modern,
fireproof, sanitary jail, such as a wide
awake thriving county like Laurens
The jail itself was cleaner when in
Spleeted this year than it was in 1918,
bill we recommend that the Sheriff re
muire the dirt. swept i) to le removed
from the corners of the room; that all
blankets in use be washed monthly;
and that the prisoners be required to
wash and change their uiderclotling
weekly. In addition, add to the reC
orIs klept ill the jail book the age, race
an( sex of the prisoners, and (o n1o.
allow old prisoners to charge admis
sioni fees wlien new piisoniers are
coiiminitted. linally, give the prison

Tlhe absence of the foreman made it
dilticult to get accuirate information in
rvegard to the imanagement of the
camp, and therefore to have scored
the gang iwould have been inaccurate,
perhaps. ''hle other gang was camped
solmlewhere near Clinton, but when
our Inspector tried to find it lie could
not locate the site. lie traveled around
over several roads looking for It, and
asked numbers of people for dirvec
(tions, but without success, and there
fore lie was unable to score this gang.
H Because of the aniouint. of inspecting,
investigatiig, etc., required of our
force it was 1nt possible to revisit the

acy, Fountain Inn; andi is sold by one
daruggist in every town throughout
medicine needed, and buy all clothing
for the Inmates. For the rent of the
farm, -ltis the cash the superintendent
receives, she Is required to supply the
feood consumed for the a'orage num
her of seven or eight inmatess When
Interest on the value of the farm is
counted in it iprobably costs the coun
ty much more per ca'pita to run the
almshouse than it costs the State to
run the splendidly equipped State Hos
pital for the Insane. The Supervisor
and Commissioners -should employ i
couple to manage the place, the man
being a good farmer and the woman
strong .and sympathetic with unfortu
nate people. They should be opaid a
straight salary, and required to run
the farm In the Interest of the coun
ty instead of In their own Interest.
The County Commissioners should
then pay for all food bought for the
inmates as they do now for the food
bottght for the Chiaih gang men. \Ve
are glad to report that in this par
tieular inslance the -innates are not
siiftering under the present arrange
ment, because Mrs. Motte is a kindly.,
synm pathetic womlian, and she gives the
paulers three meals daily, the rations
being probably better than the aver
age throughout the State. But the
system is wrong. and in the hands of
the wrong kind of superintendent tihe
inmates 'would suffer, to say nothing
of the greater expense to the taxpay
(rs of the county.
Since our 1918 innpection a new
house has been built for white inmnate,;.
This is a nice house of eight rooms,
but it was badly placed on the lot.
and has not yet been screened against

houses will have to be moved away
from the new building, and the old
houses all repaired and freshened il
