' Tallahassee. April 28. The report of
the special committee appointed at the
extraordinary session to visit and in
vestigate the needs , and condition of
the state infiVitUUons and make, raw
commendations to this legislature was
presented today; It waa signed by
John W. Watson, chairman,' E. p. Wil

investigations of all institutions ox-
cept the state prison farm at' Ralford
and tho . girls' industrial school t
Oeala, , v , t ,
Brtefly the . report on tho different
institutiona roUows: .- '. r
i ,tate Hetrrtai for Insane.
TheT report glvea.it as tte cofnmit-
v44fiopmlonVthAt-'ttb".mstitution is
not Whatft -should be, but states that.
Lority 4ro rptssibiy "dolnsp the best
they cant . with tha present ; buildings
anaequtpment-We believe that it
Is impossible." It recites,' no" make a
modern institution with ,. these old
buildings," some wood, sonic brick,
built , evidently without, regard to
architecture or to comfort and very,
little fire protection. The .fact ia that!
the state has long outgrown this badly)
crowded . institution and the sanitary
conditions are not what they should I
be. According to the statement of the
physician accompanying us. the insti
tution is badly overcrowded, having
about 1,600 patients, 60 per cent white1
and 40 per cent colored."
"Under the management of W. Ww
Trammell, who resigned about fifteen
months ago, we find that they used aJ
part of the colored male building to!
take care of about sixty white patients;
me section, nowever, was separate
from the colored patients. At the
white female department at the same
time. they were using the day, or sit
ting room, for sleeping rooms. In the
colored female department beds hadi
to be placed In the halls. The condi
tions are about as bad now. The
original buildings - at " this institution.
were constructed for military purposes'
and all buildings erected since simply
had to be located as best they coukt
with reference to other buildings. The!
entire institution seems to have no1
definite plan for Its future growth ndi
without any uniformity as to the dif-j
ferent departments. The recreation.)
grusndo are altogether too smalL
There have been admitted to this
Institution many old and enfeebled
persons, most of whom were suffering
from some chronic or incurable dis-i
ease at . the time of admission. It imi '
the opinion of your committee that!
this class of patients should' be kepc
at home and treated, and not to bet
sent to the hospital for the. Insane, 1
and we believe many of them are sent
there simply to get them out of the
way at home."
Among other features of tho report
are: Deaths in 1915, three hundred:
in 1916, two hundred and twenty-nine; ,
Tubercular ward for whites new, first
class and modern, 25 patients. . No
tubercular ward for negro patients.
Veranda of colored ward used when
weather permits. When weather will
not permit, colored tubercular patients -are
kept in colored hospital with other
sick patients not suffering from tuber- j
culosis. We noticed," saya the re-
port, "in this hospital an old water i
cooler and cup from which all of them
apparently drank water. Dining room,
and kitchen in good condition and;,
facilities ample. Food substantial. IceJ;

going up in this building are altogether j
inadequate, being , too. narrow and I
all, and in our opinion should a 1
fire start in the night time many in-!
mates would be burned up before they
could possibly get out. i ;
No fire escapes in receiveing ward.
No ward for nurses. Nurses use rooms
