WORK ON COUBT HOCSE. It will be remembered by those whc sat on the Board last f all, tiiat d uring the closing days of the session heav ram storms prevailed. Immediately after the adjouroment of the Board the Committee were inforined that there was a serious leak in the nppei part of the tower of tlie court house : and the Committee at once investigated the matter, and found the floors tiooded to an alarming extent, especially endangering the machinery of tJie clock, as well astheceilings belovv. The Aun Arbor member of the Coniinittee was authorized to attend to this matter, and also, in fact, to all other mattere not necessarily requiring a f uil meeting of the Committee, at any time; and he at once had the tower repaired by Me3srs. Grossman n & Schlenker, at a cost of $3.75. There has been no leakage since that time. During the same storm, one of the circular windows in the tower, on the south side of the court house, was broken and a new one ordered inserted, which was done by William Herz, costing $8.45. The Register of Deeds appliedtothe Committee, Nov. 24th, for some repairs on the Windows of his office, for some new book shelves, and for the covering of the iloor of one of the rooms with linoleum. The carpetmg was done by Martin Haller, and cost $18.97. The book shelves and weather strips around the windows were put in by John J. Ferguson. -uie couniy orneéis coiiipianieü or the uncomfortable condition of the rooms ou the first floor, on account of the excessive draft through the west door, which was originally constructed so as t.o be self-closing. but trom long use had become inoperative in that way. We ordered Mr. Ferguson to put in new springs, and also to erect storm doors'with srnall windows inserted in them, and various other lixt ures necessary toa complete job. The old spnugs of the door of the County Treasurer's office had also to be replaced by new ones, and weather strips aflixed to the windows in the office of the County Clerk. The Committee found, on investigation, thatseveral of the posts intended td support the roof of the court house were too short to reach theirpedestals, and Mr. Ferguson was employed to iusertsufflcientundcr-pinninfrtoafford a solid support f rom them. Tliis was also found to be the case with the supports in the tower in which are the clock dials, and they were similarly under-pinned. Mr. Ferguson 's charge for all this work was $:-;?. 43. 8ome repairs were found necessary to be done to the tools used in the engine nom, and were made by Mr. Setter, amounting to $3.15. When Mr. Uavenport entered upon his duties as jan i tor, he called the attention of the Committee to the condition of the janitor's rooms, and asked that they be re-papered and otherwise renovated. We made a careful investigition and decided tnat his request should be granted. The work was satisfactorily done by E. A. Edmunds. ata eost of $71.74, which included iepainting of all the woodwork. The attention of the Committee was I also called to the absence of several of he cb i mu ey caps, blown off d uring storms. senou.siy affectini; the rtraft of I tlie llues, and lo tin' condition oí' p.uts of tlie root and eave-trouguing. It was f ou ad necessary to m.ike inany 1 repairs on the roof and eaws, n I to : put uew caps on the chimneys. The '■ work was given to James E. Narkins, , whose bill amounted to $84.1-5. He also made necessary repairs on Uie gutteis and water-conductors ttbout ilie j rooi, al au additional eost of $10.40. Repair ano supplies tor the court house were ilso furnished by IIutzt-1 cV; i Co., írom OcLolier. 1893, to April, 1894, amoimting to $3.(io. önpplies and labor were furnished by J. j. Fergusett, in addition to those lieretofofe mentioned, aaiounting to $12.40; and this expense was incurred tor the purpose of improving the condition of the drinkinK fountains throughout the court house and facilitating access to the mechanical attaclnueiitsconnected with théin underneath, by the hanging of doors, etc. At the ïequest of the County Tre;isurer, Eberbach & Co. were engaged to place an electric alarm in that oflice, at a cost of $13 00. The l'rosecuting Attorney requested the Commiitee to place a telephone in !iis oilice, lo afford him necessary comniunication with al) parts of the county on business connected with liis office, and obvíate the necessity of repairing to the telephone in the County Clerk's oilice, or eisewhere, on sucli occasions; and alter due deliberatiou the Cominittee concluded to accede to his re(juest. The telephone will cost the county $48 a year. On the 2d of April, 1894, a small lire broke out near the top of the furnace chimney. The rire department was called, and in order to get access to the tire it was necassary to break tluough the wall trom the inside, just below the eave-trough. The lire was then soon extinguished. It appears ! tliat this chimney is construeted in two subdivisions, oue con tai n ing the exit lor smoke, etc, and the other being a i ventilating piDe, which had its outlet below the top of the cliimney and near the eave-trough and cornice. The venj tilator seetns to have beconie corroded by moisture to such au extent that it was no longer adapted to the purpose tor which it was iutended. The expenditure for all repairs in consequence of the lire was $74.35. The adjustment of the insurance for tliis loss remains to be made by the underwriters. At the request of the county ofticers it was decided to purchase a new rlag for the court house, the old one having beconie very mucli dilapidated. The flag was obtained from J. C. Goss & Co., of Detroit, at a cost of $22.80, and is a very handsome one. It arrived in time for use on the Foujth of .) uly. A large nuinlier of tiles on the floors of the court house being found loose, and inany braken, Mr. John Baunigardner was given the contract to put 111 new ones and make solid those that were loose Fifty-one new tiles were put down, the material and labor for all amounting to $75.08. The old faucets of the fountaina on the various floors had been so construeted that any persop using them might leave them unclosed and let the water continue running. The result was that parts of the lower ceilings were seriously damaged and will have to be repaired To remedy this, the Committee engaged Kenny & Quinlan to put self-closing faucets on all the fountains, and there has been no further trouble in that regard. The lirm received $47.73 for the work. For putting new glass in tour windows, and replacing the stained glass in the door of the Supervisors' room, (broken by unknown intruders,) and lettering the latter. J. E. Harkins was paid $22. Considering it necessary for the safety of the court house and for the efficiënt heating, that the boiler and chimney be thoroughly cleaned and all detects attended to, L. J. Sutter, a wel] knowii and competent machinist of this city, was employed, and perfonned his duties in the most satisfactory marnier, spending, with an assistant, about three days on the work, at a cost of $13.55. The looks on the north and soutl doors of the hall were reported by the janitor to have become useless, anc also the lock on the door of the wate closet, and new ones were orderei from Wagner & Biermann, costing $4.65. Ilutzel & Co. were employed in April, at an expense of 75 cents, to stop leaks in the drinking fountains oi the second tloor. Itwasfound tliat a new brick arel was needed behind the furnace, foi the better concentration of heat under the boiler, and this was done by Ilugh McGuire at an expense of $8.50. At the request of Hon. William tí. Doty, some repairs were made on the wash-basin in the office of the Judge of Probate, including a considerable quantity of new lead pipe and varions other necessary tixtures, the total expense being $14.4ö. The work was done by Kenny & Quinlan. In the water closet one of the basins was found broken, and a new one had to be procured, repairs were made on the valves therein, and severa] of the old valve wheels replaced by new ones. This, with further repairs 'to tools in the boiler room, was attended by Mr. Sutter, involving an expenditure of $8.20. The Committee had thirty-one young maple, basswood and elm trees plantee! on the court house lawn, at a cost of flfty cents eacli. The abundant spring rains gave them an excellent growth, and only two died. Lorenzo Yoimg planted these trees, and warrants them for two years. THE COUNTY HOUSF. The flrst visit made to the County House by your Committtee, by request of the Superintendents of the Foor, was for the .purpose of investigating the condition of some of the outbuildings, notably what is called the root house, and also to examine the condition of the heating apparatus. The root house was found to be in a cillapsing condition, caused by detective foundations; and we requested the Superintendents to have all necessary repairs or additions made, at their discretion, but to follow the line of suggestions offered by your Committee. This they afterwards did, and a great and nnuch needed impiovement has been effected. At a later date ihe Committee viiued the County House, accompanied by Mr. Jacob Schuh, of the firm of Scbuh & Muehlig, to make arrangements for ' the aiterations considered necessai y in the apparauts fur heatiug the Ouiluuig. Mr Suliuu made a eareful investigation, and was employed to make ine necessary ïiuprovements in the boileis, radiators and other heatiug tixtuies througbout the buildings. Hifi wuik was done in a most satisfactory uianner and at a very reasonable charge. The entire amount expended on the County House, including the Oiil oí Mr. Schub, foots up S2U2.J4. For several yeais ít has been in ctiteniplation to provide better stiel. er i'or the hogs beionging to the county, aud several consultations took place between your Cotntïiittee and the feuperiuteudeuts in regard to the ereetiun of a nevv and improved liog house on a different site trom the one previously occupied. We limilly decided to erect a building 30 by 40 leet, with stoue toundatious and a cemented Hoor. A building has been constructed that isa credit lo the county, and will be of permanent and all-suffioient usefulness. The entire cost oí materials and labor was $91.35. Itemizeü bilis for all repairs made at the county house, and for the expense incurred in erecting the riew heg house, have been furüished by the .Superiniendents of the Pooi', and acconipany this report.

The work cost $14.50. The Sheriff reported to your Committee, about the tirst of June, that the jail cesspool required eniptying, as the eontents were overflowing. scavenger was employed, and it required a day and a night to empty it, and cost $15. The work was done by John Phillips and an assistant. Itwas afterwards found that there was an obstruction in the jaïï which preven ted egress of tiie eontents ot the cesspool, and Mr. .jacob Schuh was requested to loc.ii.e the point ot stoppage, which he iinally found, and removed the accuinulations which had caused the trouble. liis charge was $7.50.

Mr. Sutter was employed to clean the boiler and chimney, and was paid therefor $5.15. included in this was new rubber foi what is called the hand-hole. The Sheriff afterwards employed HuUel & Co. to put in new grates. The bill for the latter has not been furnished youi Committee. THE STONE VA HU, Before the close of the session ot your Honorable Body, your Committee were instructed to sell the broken ant unbroken stone in the stone yard JEfforts wert made at various times to tind sale for the stone, but without success. We iinallv rirmrOnflerl t.n yertise for purehasei's, and in April w í iuserted an advertisement in the Ani] Arbor Argus and in the Aun Arboi Courier, which was continued in those papéis nineteeu weeks, when, not bringing any result, it was ordered discontinued. The total expense í'oi advertising was $12.75. Later on, the County Clerk fortunateiy fouDd a purcbasei' tor live loada of the broken stone, at $1.00 a load. All of the unbroken stone was sold bv Mr. Hirain Kitredge to a man whose name hesays is Beek. Ile did not consult your Committee in regard to this matter. When we vvere informed of the transaction we went to see him, and were assured that he would account to your Honorable Body for the value of the unbroken stone sold. The Committee had previously made a bargain for the sale of this stone to J. J. Ferguson for $16.50; but bef ore Mr. Ferguson got ready to remove and use them, this sale by Mr. Kitredge took place. Thus the matter stands at the date of this report. INSURANCE.
