potted as follows:
That wo visited said Institution and found
the foundation and walls built of the best
material and In tbomont substantial man

ports are resting on bed rock. We found
the foundation, walls and roof completed;
the Joint all In and resting on solid supports
aud double braced; the studding all In place.
Up to thU point tbe work and materials are
of first-class quality. We found tbe doors
and windows boatded up. bnt not in condi
tion to protect the building from the storms
ot wind, rain and snow. We also 6nd that
there lias been expended tbe turn of SJ3.2S4.U

the sum ottS,000 to complete the building
and fit it for occupancy and public use.
That there Is now Iu said Krform School

Your committee would recommend that
the building be kept Insured and that it bo
completed under the direction of tho Doard
of Control or such management as has
charge of Toirltorlul buildings, and that so
much of said building as is not required for
tlie purposes for which it was croated beset
apart for such other uso by the Territory as
will in tho i udgment of t ho Hoard of Control
bj most beneficial to the Territory. And
that such a tax levy be made as will protect
this prooorty and m ike It useful to the Ter
ritory. In the Council the first bill of the
