More records went by the board on ]

mile figures below the 1.30 mark before
his work is finished here.

I regret to state that the papers of our
citv have not requested these would-be

! g^; They ought to be pledged to
] build three new workhouses, one in each
county, a? the present jails are nothing i
better than pestholes from which a loath

endure. From a moral standpoint, to put 1
prisoners in jail witlioutany work toper
form, especially the unlettered is a liv- j
ing tomb, and in contradistinction to
Christ's teachings, "Blessed are the titer-!
ciful for they shall obtain mercy." I j
read a report in one of our city papers
from Mrs. N. B. Smithers, State super- 1
intendent, and in my opinion |
a more concise, truthful state-:
ment ot tacts could not be given bv any
person. Indeed, she has stated all the ■
facts in the case so minutely that I am j
at a loss to find words to augment on the
prospective workhouses which is de
manded by a great majority of our pco
pie. I shall say in the interest of this !
workhouse movement if this (>enign
lady, Mrs. N. B. Smithers, would get her,
article printed in pamphlet form and
distributed all over the State it would
have a good effect on tlie people of our
State, who would demand the erection of
workhouses. Just think of paying the
Sheriff $2,(551.28 for boarding prisoners
when the actual cost to him was $4,217,
28 which give him on the deal $8,434.79
in eccess of cost. ...
Y ls , P lec0 ? financiering is only
eqmfied by paying the Mayor of our city
