THE STATE CAPITAL. XCcnttimei from the First Pngf.] who makotlio management of convicts a study are bettor able than wo to docldo upon methods of forcing obedience. Tho prosperity of tho con tractors who employ tho convicts depends very closely upon striae discipline; that not being maintained, the contractors would suffer annoy- : anco and loss, and tho now largo and steady in come from them would, in tlmo. bo seriously di minished, and tho Pouitonliaiw greatly de moralized generally. Strict discipline Is intimately connected with tho finan cial prosperity of tho prison, and should bo continuously maintained; caro be ing taken that tho law bo not violated by tho lu •fllctlon of cruel and unusual punishments, •among which may bo classed tho ducking of prisoners in cold water. ’ Tho prisoners aro well clothed, tholr clothing •regularly washed and kept noat and clean. Tholr 'food wo find to bo of suifioiont quantity, wholo •Bomo and woll cooked. Tho colls and coll houses ■aro models of neatness. Tho complaints of con ■ viols aro remarkably fow, tho expression of many ?being that tboso who oboy tho rales aro ns com fortably situated os is possible for prison life. Your Committee tako pleasure in expressing 1 their approval of tho neat, pleasant, and homo •liko appearance of tho lomalo department, •everything therein showing tho presence, taste, and good ordor of gontlo woman. In this con »noclitm wo would command most highly, for •kindness of heart and faithfulness of coudnot, tho matron of that department, Miss Braloy, •who is doing all in her powor for tho comfort of •hor unfortunate charges. Your Commlttoo woro impressed with tho im •novtanco of ascertaining whether or not tho books of tho prison woro being kept In a truth ful manner. To facilitate this portion of tho in vestigation, a Sub-Committee was appointed, ■•contesting of Messrs. Barkley, Rankin, and .Easley, who spent several days at tho prison in .making tho oxaminotion in connection with Mr. .Alfred Spink, of Chicago, an accountant of Stato -reputation. Tho Bub-Oommittoo submit tho •following report: •jTO the House FenUenttarjf Committee: ' Gentlemen: Your Bub-Oommittoo, appointed *0 examine tho books nud papers of the Pcnlton diary, nog leave to report as follows s To* insure a complete and thorough invostiga •tion of the books wo secured tho services of Mr. Alfred Spink*, National Bank Examiner for Chi cago. an export accountant. In accordance with ' previous arrangement, wo mot Mr. Spink at tho prison on Wednesday, March ID, ami made an •exhaustive examination of tho prison accounts. The rchult of our examination is shown in tho report of Mr. Spink: Springfield, March 27, 1873, JETon. J>. IT. Barkley, Chairman. Ac.: 8m: Having completed the books of tho Illi nois Stato Penitentiary, with especial reference to tho business of tho year ending Noy. 80, 1872, I now present tho following as my report: Tho nooks woro found to have been kept in a thorough, systematic, nud business-like manner. Cash disbursements aro substantiated by proper vouchors, and tho record of tbo employment of tho convicts is guarded by ample and aufiiciont. chocks. . Tho system is suck that all accounts of receipts and disbursements can bo thoroughly verified, and that no fraudulent entries could osoapo detection upon proper examination. Taking tho fumitnro, fixtures, supplies, and material on hand, November, 1872, at tho value fixed by tho sovoral inventories, tbo assents of tho Fonitontiavy, ovor and abovo all liabilities, amounted at that dato to $880,804.16.

Tho notes rppro sonting bills receivable on hand Nov. 80, hnvo been found either on hand, paid eiuco that date, or vouched for by receipts of agents in whoso hands they are for collection. Contractors’ accounts outstanding Nov. 80 have all been vorillcd by actual payment. Tho charges to thoeo accounts for convicts’ labor during tho year wero found correct from exami nation of tho chock-rolls. The principal accounts, bearing on tho famish ing and cutting of stone for tho State Uoubo, cannot bo absolutely verified until completion of ibo story now going up and unfinished. Tiro cutting for tho basement and principal stories has been settled, finally and correctly, according to tho tonne of tbo contract, Tho account, therefore, against tbo Stato-Houso Commission ers is, and can only bo, an ostimato. Tbo samo of ibo accounts of tbo contractors for furnishing and cutting stono. A final adjustment can only bo raado as tbo different parts of tbo work avo completed, and tho material' is on hand to verify thoeo accounts when tho proper timo comes. 1 have examined them as closely as it is Eiossible to do so at ibo present, and am satisfied bat tbo estimates are on tbo safe sido, that they diminish rather than increase tho profits repre sented to have boon made during tho year. Tbo.liabilitics of tbo Penitentiary consist in largo part of tbo indebtedness to tho stono con tractors, and it is tho duty of tbo Commission ers, for tboir security and that of tbo State, to continuo to withhold from them a largo percent age of tho amount'’apparently duo them on ibo basis of ibo estimates inado until a final and thorough adjustment can bo arrived at', * * m * # * <K'«' * % Tbo average of tbo convict prisoners during tbo past year, male and female, baa boon 1,233, Of UicßO 1,030 have been employed at producing tbo gains established in tbo balance shoot, as follows ] Labor, {leased {©contractor).., Machinery department Stone department, (Bmonthb) Teaming department Quarry department, The number of working days through* tbo year was 811, and thuir 0.20,800 days' labor brought a fraction oVer cento per day, including tbo work of teams employed, which would amount Co but a fraction, and which cannot bo estimated Separately. Of tho balnnco of 253 convicts, an average of 25 wore employed as State runuors in tho shops. 11)0 at general prison work, and 38 woro on trie sick list or kept In ooniinoroont. Tho system of check rolls, for keeping tho ac counts of tho prisoners, is a good and roliablo one, each guard making a daily report of tho prisoners in his charge during the day, tho re port of tho wholo being proved ny tho actual number known to bo on hand, tho proof being made daily by tho chief clerk • and book keeper, from wnich the charges are made month ly to contractors for tho labor of convicts ployed by thorn. As tho Inventories are now made out, they fall to show in a plain, dtflkhlg manner tho amount Ip value bf articles of furmturo and fixtures nec essary for the permanent uso of the prison, apart from tho amount of supplies and material on baud. Bufch Items are now generally kept under the bond of expense account, and it wuuld eoom that they he transferred to now ac count's, to be opened under tho hood of “ Prison furniture, prison fixtures," etc., under which all Articles for permanent uso should ho kept, The inventories taken at tho end of each year would show tho amount of appreciation chargea ble to profit and loss account, and that item of expense could readily ho soon. Tho thorough examination I have made of tho'accounts of the Institution satisfied me that daring tho past year it has not only boon self-sustaining, hut lias legitimately made and earned tho profits repre sented in the balance-sheet for November, 1072. Bospoctfully. Annum Bpink. It having been charged that Lot 7, In Block 14, lu'thbT’own of Morris, 111., owned by tho Ponli tbutinry, had boon corruptly transferred to Mr. Teller, wo made a full examination of thareo prds of the yrlaoDj tmd found the title of the properly to bo In Elmer Washburn* Worden of the Illinois Stale Penitentiary, and bla sue oosaora In oflloo. A letter from our Chairman, addressed to Mr. F. W. Tup per, Circuit Clerk of Grundy County, elicited on ofilolnl cortiflcato identical 'with the records of the prison. Tho Warden informed ns that tho property would bo transferred to Mr. Tolfor whenever he delivered tho amount end quality of coal stipulated In tho original contract, it Is but Just to state Hint tho Warden and Com missioners gave your Committee the fullest ac cess to tho books, papers, and accounts of tho Penitentiary, and tendered us every facility for making a thorough examination of tho same. Your Commitloo fool that a word should bo said In opposition to very long terms of Impris onment la tho Penitentiary. It Is tho opin ion of tho prison officers that after ton or twolvo years’ confinement at Penitentiary labor, with strict discipline and enforced silence, a convict becomes physically and mentally unfit to caro for hlmsolf in the outside world. If comts of Justice fully understood tho effect of a ton or fifteen years* sentence, they would often give crimi nals shorter tonus, and thereby allow them one more opportunity to atouo for past misdeeds and to make good nud useful citizens. ; This report would bo Incomplete without ap proving reference being tmulo to tho present system of leasing the labor of convicts, first adopted in 1871. Tho Stato maintains tho disci pline and has nolo charge of tho personal waulsof tho prisoner, tho contractors paying a stipulated price per day for tholr labor. Tho system Is working admirably, being, in fact, in tho opinion of your Committee, tho host possible method by winch humanity to tho prisoners can bo assured, and at the same time the financial interests tff tho State mo:t carefully guarded. In one very important direction tho State nog loots her criminal clasn. Convicts aro sent from tho Penitentiary at the ex piration of their terms with barely money enough to pay railroad faro to the place whore they wore convicted, and a pittance to pay for subsistence while on route. Consequently they arrive at their destination without money, and, their history being known, they often find it unusually difficult to procure employment. Tliis is especially true in the winter, and In many cases they see no alternative but to starvo or steal. Often, they do tho latter, and a second term is tho result. By being given a sum of money sufficient to pro vide food for a week or two, many discharged convicts would bo enabled to find employment, and carry out previously-formed goodjlutoutions. It would bo much cheaper for the Stato to pro vide liberal aid to discharged convicts, thus saving many to honorable lives, than to pay tho increased cost of tho Criminal Courts incident to ro-couvlctlonof such a largo number of former criminals. Prevention of crime is cheaper than punishment. Your Committee would commend those viowoi to tho earnest consideration of tho General Assembly, nud urge prompt action thereon. Asido from tho culpable irregularities mentioned in this report, tho Btato of Illinois can justly bo congratulated upon tho present successful and v'.rf}sporouß couaitiou of the Penitentiary. Its highly commeficuiu, is unsur passed ; its discipline iindkcbiiCu, uasd generally os a penal institution it ranks among .Wjo best in tho world. It* is an unheard-of financial condition, being run with profit, asking no appro priation from the General Assembly. While this fact should not bo made a clonk for delinquen cies, yet it should bo brought prominently, before tho public, as a proof that tho present general management of tho Penitentiary is of a oharaotoi to moot tho hearty approval of tho pooplo.

Easley.” 1 Mr. Wyman desired to tako his namo from the report, as ho disagreed with it. Mr. Rankin submitted a minority report,‘stating tbo property bought by Rosonfiold for $15,000 was worth twxco that amount. Tho eamo prop erty was appraised by tho former In vestigating Committee at $41,096.80. It was in evidence that Bosonficld had offered SIB,OOO for tho property throe months before, and Washbumo had boon offered $20,000 for it exclusive of a largo quantity of machinery thrown in to Itosonfiold. ' An engine sold to Ro sonfiold for sßoo.was cold by him for $2,000. Not one cent of tbo $15,000 was paid by Boson field yet, although tho Stato hod’ paid him the sum of $20,000 for tho purchase made of him. Tho 720 suits of clothing' bought at $8 a suit, estimated by "tho majority as being worth S8 a suit, woro not worth .$4 a suit. Con tracts wore made contrary to law, and tho pur chases ante-dated in tbo books. Contracts amounting to $17,409 wero made, which woro $0,549 too high. That was a fraud. Commis sioner Hold was corruptly interested in tbo Taylor quarry. There should bo no more chap lains, os it would create divisions among con victs on doctrinal points, and destroy discipline. Ho disagreed with tho cneomiumsof tho majority oh tho prison - management, which merited the condemnation of tho pooplo. Officials used tho prison to increase their privato for tunes, and convicts wore employed, to swoar falsely before tbo Commission, 110 could not think such conduct should bo praised. Mr. Batikiu offered a resolution asking leave of tbo House to exhibit samples of clothing which ho got from Chicago, to compare with thq cloth ing lionght by tho Commissioners. Leave was granted. Mr. Westfall explained that ho did not sign tho majority report, as ho objected to tho multi plicity of chaplains, and was satisfied that tho re port had done tho management injustice in charging them with having purchased a throe years' supply of shoos at ono tune, when tho sup ply was only for ono year. Mr. Barclay moved to print 1,000 copies of tho report, and it was moved to include tho testi mony, Mr. Wood said tho evidonoo was voluminous, and not all written out, and there was no mate rial difference In tho two reports. Tho motion to print was adopted.

Nobody objected. The House postponed action on tho final ad journment resolution one week. EVENING SESSION OF THE SENATE, The Senate had an evening session, and jumped bills out of their order in a reckless fashion. Tho hill providing for the appropriation of tho unknown dead for dissecting purposes, which passed tlio House and io now in the Senate, should receive kindly consideration from that body.
