The Police Commission at a meet
ing held last evening found that more
attention isneede.l for prisoners ami
that anocenrance like that of Windle
must he avoided. The men in charge
when the prisoner was brought in and
the man who arrested Windle and the
Acting Turnkey seemed to come in
for the rebuke,
At the close of the meeting the fol
lowing conclusion wa* reached:
In ihe mutter of the death of How

station house on March 2.">, ami
which was brought more particularly
to the attention of the board at it*

such an occurrence.
msures adopted
The board thinks that whenever
anv person is unconscious when
brought in, the officer making tho
arrest should state the facts p uinly
to the officer in charge, who should
at once inquire whether the prisoner
had received any injury from a blow
fall, or otherwise, and enter such in
formation on the docket, and then
make, or have made, a thorough ex
animation of the prisoner, and have
all tho necessary attention given
them atouce, ami that a rule he for
