"The s'ate penitentiary building is in
bad with social committees and grand
juries. During the recent legislature
a committee inspected the" buildings
and reported conditions pretty bad.
This eoiumittee thought that $25,000 ex
pended might help conditions a little.
But the grand jury now in session
thinks otherwise. After making a very
careful inspection of the penitentiary,
it made the following report to Judge
Percy R. Kelly of Department No 1. .
"All roofs and south walls are leak
ing, making the building meat unsan
itary. "The ceilings are nil wood or if
other combustible material and the
flue to the oven a fire trap The
stove pipe which enters the flue is
within 10 inches of the wooden ceil
ing. This stove 'pipe should have an
asbest6s covering immediately. :
Escape Would Be Cut Off.
"In case fire started in the chapel
or -main receiving room, escape would
be cut off entirely for the prisoners.
''The sewer system is entirely inade
quate and is a menace to the health of
the inmates and employes.
''Money expended on an extensive
system of repairs would provide only
moderately improved conditions and
would bo a very questionable invest
ment and cvei then the state would
have a very poor phut." . . -
The grand jury report is signed by
H S. Gilc, Jas.. . T. Hall, Arthur A.
Schwab, M. M, Magers, Leonard Bar
