We found tb e stone dissolving to such an extent that we thought it necessary to paint the whole outside of the building, including tower, roof, and all the stone work, cleaning and oiling brick to restore them to their natural color; frescoing the Court room, cleaningseats and varnishing same, with ceilings in Court room. Your Committee believs the roof to be in good repair, and the gutters being new tbere will be no more trouble from the washing away of the stone work or discoloring of the brick. We also found it absolutely necessary to relay the stone steps, and also some of the tiling that was loose. The contract for painting and frescoing was given to Oscar Sorg, requiring an itemized statement of all labor and material used for said repairs. On presentation of bis bill we made a thorough examination of all items and labor and were satisfied it was a just bill. Allowed his claim, the whole amount being eight hundred and one dollars and 21 cents. Mr. John Fiinn received the contract for relaying the steps and other repairs, giving an itemized account of all labor and material used. On presentation of his bill we examined the bill and allowed the same, whole amount being $447.46.

Mr. Braun offered the following: Whereas, Section 2128 of Howell's Annotated Statutes of the State of Michigan practically discriminates againsi any township containing within its limits a city (as, for instance, Ann Arbor township,) in this, that dogs that have killed sheep outside the city limits are very often traced directly to the city, their identity then lost, thus imposing upon the township the burden of paying damages done by unknown dogs from the city ; and Whereas, Said statute does not provide that the city dog tax fund shall be applied toward the payment of such damagea done ; therefore, be it Resolved, That our Representatives and Senator in the Legislature are hereby instructed to use their influence to obtain an amendment of said section, providing that when the killing of sheep can be proved to have been done by a dog or dogs owned in a city, the treasurer of said city shall pay from the dog fund of said city the amount of damages as assessed by the justice of the township where such killing was done, when the owner is not known or unable to pay damages. Report adopted. Mr. Gilbert offered the following: Whereas, In the opinión of this Board it would be very unjust to a large portion of this county if the legislature should grant to the city of Ann Arbor three additional supervisors, or give to the justices of the pcace power in the county not granted to other justices of the county, as provided for in their new charter; therefore Resolved, That our senator and represenatives in the legislature are heieby requested to use their influence to defeat the said charter, containing these objectionable features, and the clerk is hereby requested to notify our senator and representatives of the action of this Board. Unaniruously adopted. Mr. Ball moved to reconsider the vote taken on the adoption of the resolution relative to traveling expenses of the Prosecuting Attorney. Carried. Mr. (Jrippen offered the following: Resolved, And it is hereby ordered that the Prosecuting Attorney shall attend and conduct in person all criminal prosecutions in justice courts of the county, and that hereafter no fees or costs will be allowed or paid by the Board of Supervisors to any justice of thepeace for services in cases of misdemeanor, unless such proceedings shall first be authorized by the Prosecuting Attorney in writing; and that all such bilis or claims shall be accompanied by such written authorization. And further, the Board of Supervisors will not allow or pay any bilis of the Sheriff or his deputies for board, turnkey fees or washing for any prisoner arrested for said misdemeanor, unless said prisoner has first been regularly committed by some justice of the peace.
