D^LiHcddevaon |l JJL VOL XXIII KOI) VIENNA, GA. THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 loot $1 YEAK IN ADVANCE General Presentments. To the Hon. Z. A. Littlejohn, judge of the Superior Court: We, the grand jurors drawn and sworn for the September Term of Dooly County Superior court 1004, beg to present the following pre sentments : County Farm and Alms House. We And everything in very good shape, except a chimney in the colored department, which we re- •commeud to beJ>prn down and re built at oncdfaM it is in bad shape., We also recommend tha* a wire fence be run on the « ea8t 8 ide of the farm, as the f^nce on that side is in very ^ 1U J condition. We also .recommend that a well be dug close ’to the dining room in the white inmates’yard. We also think it advisable that the ordinary buy beef or pork for tho-inmates, from the country or wherever he can get it the cheapest, as they seom to be in need of •something of this kind. Public Buildings. We fin.d that our jail is in need bf some re pan", 8 ' v ^ z: t he lower Cells are unsafe in places, caused by continuous rust, ana »T e rGCOm ‘ mend that they be repairedafl ea. 1 *^ as practicable. We also recommend that the roof and cells be repainted at once, as the rust will injure them more ijmn the cost of the painting. We And the courthouse in good condition, except two leaks in the roof, which we think would be ad visable to repair at once. From the report of the commit tee, composed of M. E. Rushin and C, R. Morgan, appointed to exam ine the books of the county officers, we beg to submit the following: To the Hon. Grand Jury: We find everj’thing in a satisfac tory condition. We find a healthy increase in taxable returns fur 1904 of $882,859.00. The total taxable property for this year is $4,500,950.00. Of this amount our colored citizens pay taxes on $245,700.00, an increase over last year of $88,959.00. The white poll of the county is 2255, colored 1776. We find that our city court lias disposed of considerable business within the last six months. It has practically kept our jail clear, and has turned over to our Qounty •Treasurer $1,800.00, arising from hire of convicts. This amount ex ceeds the funning expenses of this court by several hundred dollars. We note some improvement in the treasurer’s books. In this office we find everything alright; vouch ers for each and every expenditure; amount on hand $8,518.05. We find the books of record in the offices of the ordinary and clerk to be neatly kept, and items prop erly indexed. In the office of the county school commissioner we find vouchers for all expenditures. There is a small balance on hand of $284.85. The road commissioners of the several districts should furnish the ordinary or county commissioners lists of those in their respective districts who are liable for road duty. The whites and colored should be Jrept separate, with their respectiye ages. We find that we have ten good mules, 6 wagons,one road machine, two wheel scrapes, several 2’-horse plows, and ,o,ther implements, such ias shovels, picks, axes, hoes, etc. Respectfully submitted, M.
