THE PRISONERS WILL NOT BE TRANSFERRED
TO THE NEW JAIL, MONDAY.
The Building Nearly Completed, But Not Quite.
The Reason For the Delay—A Glance
Through the Edifice.
The Board of County Commissioners
has rescinded its action, taken at the
last regular meeting, designating next
Monday as the date for the transfer of
the prisoners from the old to the new
jail, and the date has been left open,
making it probable that at least two
weeks, and perhaps some days longer,
will elapse before the change Is made.
This action was made necessary by the
fact that the building could not be com
pletely fitted up in time. This Is not
the fault of the contractors, nor
of the architect, nor even of
the Board itself. It doesn’t
appear to be any one’s fault. At the
time the order was made designating
the last day of October as the date of
removal it was thought by all connected
with the construction of the edifice
that there would be nodifficulty In hav
ing all the details completed, but some
additional work was determined upon In
the meantime, and there was a delay in
fitting up the cells, especially iu the
matter of bunks, which made it, if
not impossible, at least inconvenient
to transfer the prisoners on the
day named. The sample of
bunks submitted by the Van Dorn
iron works did not meet the approval of
the Board, and others had to bo made.
These have not been completed, and it
:s a little uncertain when they will bo
received. Some miner fixtures in the
nlsn rAmfiin to hfi I’laced ill DOSi
tion, but they are matters of small mo
meat, and will take but little time.
Yesterday evening seventy-live of the
eighty cells In the main cell building
were ready for the bunks, and the oth
ers will doubtless be completed lo-day.
The ventilating apparatus is working
nicely, making the interior of the build
ing warm, and drying it out nicely, but
some of the plastering is a little greeu
as yet, aud there will be a noticeable
dampness for several weeks.
Tne jailer’s residence is complete, and
can bo moved Into at once, If it was de
sirable. It Is a fine building, contain
ing, besides the kitchen, which Is fitted
up with a massive steel range and all
conveniences, three large rooms and a
hall on the first floor and three bed
chambers and a bath room, besides halls
and several closets on the second, aud
will make a commodious and pleasant
residence. It is entirely cut off from the
jail proper, save by one door-way, open
ing into the guard room, and this open
ing Is closed by a massive steel door.
Tbe front building, devoted to vari
ous offices on the first and second floors,
is still in a rather chaotic condition,
the plasterers and plumbers not hav
ing quite* finished their work, and the
mantels remaining to go up.
In the basement of thi9 building,
down in a region which Is as dark as
the interior of the proverbial cow, the
padded cells for violent lunatics are
complete, as are the dungeons for re
fractory prisoners, who may need to be
shut up there to ruminate ubon the
error of their ways. The padded cells
aro lined with the stoutest duck, tightly
stuffed with excelsior, walls and floors
aline, and a man can bounce himself
about in them like a rubber ball, with
out Jarring hi9 constitution very seri
ously. The dungeons have a door at
each end, so that a man who refuses to
behave himself can be attacked front
and rear by those having him In charge.
The large room In the basement of
the tower, designed for the
detention of witnesses under
certain circumstances, Is also complete,
as Is the laundry, aud up next the roof
the department for female prisoners
and the hospital is in good shape, and
will be ready in time. The hath room
for the prlsouers, In the basement of
the cell building, has been fitted up
with three tubs and plenty of cold wa
ter, and is ready to commence opera
tions. In all there are five bath tubs
about the building, and cleanliness is
one of tbe things which will be insisted
The whole outfit Is one entirely cred
itable to the couuty, the contractor, the
architect, and the Board, and when the
public is admitted for an inspection of
the building there will, no doubt, be a
general concurrence in this view.
What Has Transpired In a General Way
Auioug the Schools.
After a week’s enjoyment among the
scholars in preparing for the “Colum
hinn Ttav eeli'hratinn.” thev found it
| somewhat difficult to get down to hard
I work agaiu. The work being doubly
hard on account of the entire week
being devoted to the first of the bi
monthly written examinations of this
term. The examinations wero about
all completed yesterday. The reports
will be sent to the parents on Monday,
the last day of the month. Throughout
all the schools the toachers have noted
marked improvement in various grades |
over that of last year. This is certainly
a good showing for the first term of
In some of the schools work for the
World’s Fair has already been com
menced. The teachers should read with
care State Superintendent B. S. Mor
gan’s editorial in the October number of
the West Virginia School Journal, in
which he says:
“The character of our State educa
tional exhibit will depend very largely
upon the promptness and readiness
with which the teachers, superintend
ents and scholars respond to the re
quests of the World’s Fair managers.
This work has been begun a little late,
and the teachers and scholars must
therefore begin the work of preparation
promptly and push it vigorously. Many
of the older States issued their circulars
of lnstructious to teachers relative to
this work as early as last March.”
The schools in the city here not hav
ing commenced their preparation should
commence at once, as over half of the
work could be &:complished before
Christmas. We are all naturally Inter

A Trick that Didn't Work.
Yesterday G. If. McCune, who has

locked up. After considering the mat

to pay up, and was released.

A Bad Runaway.
Last night about Lalf-pastsix a team
belonging to Albert Jennings took
fright in the Fifth ward, and came
dashing across the Market street bridge
and up to Sixteenth street. At that
street it swerved to the east and the
wagon struck the B. & 0. safety gate,
completely wrecking it, and knocking
the tongue off the wagon and complete
ly wrecking the vehicle. This checked
the career of the ,tightened horses and,
they were captured. No one was hurt,
although a pedestrian on the postofiice
sidewalk had rather a narrow escape.

not all be equally fortunate? It certainly is
possible. Every elderly man and woman needs
