We are sorry to report that at this
term of this court we have been call
ed upon to consider more cases than
havo been presented to any grand
jury In this county in the last twenty
years and in most of these cases have
been compelled to Teturn true bills.
We have been greatly hampered in
our work by the failure of several jus
tices to properly recognize witnesses
to appear before us and in other in
stances in recognizing them to ap
pear on the second Instead of the first
day of the term.
County Offices In Good Condition.
Our committee Inspected the office
of the sheriff and clerk and beg to re
port same apparently in good order.
All books and records in good shape
as far as we could tell by our limited
Clerk of the Court
The clerk of this court has furnish
ed us with all the information regard regarding
ing regarding his office and the action of the
board of county commissioners re
quired by law. This report is so
voluminous that it is practicably Im
possible for a body the size of this to
thoroughly investigate same. Nor ean
we see any benefit to be derived from
an observance of Section 772 General
Statutes, requiring the clerk to fur
nish the grand Jury an Itemized state
ment of all monies paid out by the
county commissioners, particularly so
when the state employs an auditor to
go over the books of the county and
check them up.
An Uaelea Expense
We recommend that the court sug
gest to the next legislature that the
above section be repealed.
New Jail Approved
We Inspected the Jail and found It
neat and in good condition with the
exception of the shower bath floor
which needs a ridge In order that the
water can run back into the sewerage
instead of all over the floor. The wa
ter closets in the cells also need to be
fixed, as there is a leakage so that
when the water is turned on It stands

Superintendent of Schools
Having inspected the office of the
superintendent of public instruction.
beg to say that while our Inspection
was of a limited nature, we found the
books and records in a very neat and
satisfactory manner. It was explained
to us that in order to keep up with the
office work a great deal of his time Is
employed that should be devoted to
outside work over the county. He ad
vises us that he cannot keep regular
help on the- $300 per annum allowed
him for this purpose and what assist
ance he does have being only tem
porary and entirely untrained in the
d'utles of the. office. Is not very satis
Should Have More Clerical Help
This being one of the most import
ant offices in the county, we do not
believe that the majority of the super
intendent's time should be occupied in
offce work, and as he tells us he could
possibly obtain regular office assist
ance for $50 per month, we recom
mend that he be allowed the additional
sum of $300 per annum.
We also find that the floor of his
office is in very bad repair and is ap
parently in danger of breaking in if
not looked after in the near future.
Our committee appointed to examine
the tax collector's office report as fol
ows: We find everything in excellent
condition with no recommendations
suggested or complaints made by the
Upon complaint being made to us
that the Inmates of the poor farm
were being neglected we examined two
of the inmates of same and they tes
tified that they had no complaint as
far as their personal comfort was con
cerned but to the best of their knowl
edge the superintendent was somewhat
extravagant In the use of the money
allowed for the upkeep of the farm,
where he is personally concerned. We
recommend that the county commis
sioners look into these matters and
take steps to adjust all irregularities,
Equalise the Assessments
We beg to mention the following.
which we believe at presenilis a very
interesting subject to most of the tax
payers of this county. With the coun
ty at present heavily in debt and with
no assurance to the tax payers that it
will not increase instead of diminish
ing, we beg to call to the attention
of the officials of the county who have
the power to determine valuations,
that it is an Indisputable fact that In
a great many instances that those
who reap the most benefit from the
large expenditures of money are be beyond
yond beyond doubt more able to pay taxes, are
paying less In proportion to the man
that is less able to stand it, and we
are satisfied that If there was more
equalization of assessed valuations In
this county, there would be a reduction
in millage and the county's revenue
would be greatly Increased, and there
would be no protests except perhaps
from those that are now returning
their property at perhaps a fraction of
its real value.
We, the Jury, beg to thank Mr. Da Davis
