Service Commission at a big salary,
and at the same time Campbell was

business manager of Hearst Exam

COUNTY JAIL GETS AN AWFUL
RAP FROM GRAND JURY
For the first time on record a Cook
county grand jury has recommended
that the prisoners confined in the
county jail be supplied with work to
keep them from becoming graduates
of a "criminal college."
The July grand jury, in its report
on conditions in that institution, says
that "it is unfit for human habitation
and that if it were inspected by the
sanitary authorities of the city it
would be condemned, and that only
the fact that it was a public institu
tion prevented it from being con
demned long ago."
The jury also "finds that the pres
ent abominable conditions would be
greatly relieved by the assignment of
more judges to the circuit court,"
and recommends that if there are not
enough judges to handle the business
properly that the criminal branch be
given the preference until more
judgeships could be created.
