Inbor from seventy-five cents n d.iv. a price which had obtnlned fm sevr.nl ye'iirs previous, toslxtv cents j dav th is cutting tlio earning pnw.r n' ' pi "-on twenty pur cent. In Deceml. 1 ' 'T. A ,'.. Mann died nnd bv the teitus of the con unit ills estate was released from fur-the'- liability to the State three months nfter his de(onse. This left ti with Idle iron and for several weeks no revii'ip was received from their labor During this time tho country was experiencing a grout depression In buslne-m, especially 111 the hoot nuil shoo Industry. -n the hoard had the greatest difficulty In find ing men willing even to listen to n sug gestion of contracting with the Stnte for the label of the pristine! s. By persistent ndvortislng nnel canvassing, however, the board flnnllv completed and execut ed a contract with Messrs. Houghton. Hehard and Warren, of Hoston, to tak effect Miv first, by the terms of which the rh'onofs are employed in the sntno way nnd In the snme htislno" ns with the former contractor and at tho same price per dav for the first three months, during which tho price Is but fnrtv oenti a day Instead of sixty The business is now In good hnnds nnd wo behove the State Is fortunate In finding men with tho financial standing and business ability which these gentlemen have to enrry on the enterprise so successfully run for many yenrs by Mr. Mann. Tt Is also true that the lower overage number of prison ers dm Ing this term has conttlbuted somewhat to the smaller returns. On the death of Mr. Mann It seemed desirable to buy the outside shop erected by him nnd the personal propetty used In the shoomnklnv business. This was finally do:." nnd the personal property was afterward sold to the new contrac tors nt the price paid for the whole, re serving fn the State the outside shop above mentioned, which hns been np prulsoil by a disinterested expert at J7.17.-..71. The Legislature of lfnV, appropriated 5"i1.V.) to be expended 111 lemodeling the West wing of the prlnn, providing it new power house and new power, nnd a din ing room for the prisoners, altering tli-' hospital nnd making vurions needed r finlrs The Wet wing has boon practi cally rehullt. The outride walls have been extended thirty-five feet and the old win dows, which were nltoRi-ther too smell, hnve been temoved nnd livf'se niifs run ning nlmnst th full height of the walls have be-on put in their plai e The oldi block of cells hns been torn down nnd one hundred and four new nils con structed that lire larger, better lighted nnd up-to-date In every pjitleulnr yontl Intion nnd sanitary ut rnnrrment". We hnve convotted rooms formerly used as shops into a light and rootnv chapel and changed the old chapel into n conven ient kitchen and dining loom where the prisoners now take their meals at a com mon table, Wo have roconstt ticteel tho hospital, milking it suitable tn the needs of the institution. W" have put up a povv. or house, blacksmith and carpenter shop and Installed a new Harris-Corliss engine of sufficient power for nil requirements of the ptl-nn connected therewith In the Hast wing wo have Installed a svsiem of ventilation run by n large lo trlcall' driven fan which has kept the air In theso cells pine nnd which we believe has contrlbutei largely to the general health of the prisoners Wo have hoshlo.i made mnny smnll repairs thnt do not require enumeration. The prlon now. both nuisiilo and In. Is In splendid condition nnd we have no Miggestlon to make ns to future changes. The present bontd does not take It lt salf nil the credit for the satisfactory condMIon of tho prison proper! v. At the beginning nf the biennial period our pre decessors, tho prison dliootnrs, Messrs.
