Having been on their part in making a contract that yielded so handsomely. This was the Oil year however for Cort tracts have been made by other prison Otic vials but the in Rosita wore not so Large. The state then Uncle took to operate the garbage Busi-nes.? in conjunction with the Warden sharing the profits and losses fully but it proved unprofitable and the directors were to accept a contract with the present cd Focient Warden. The investigation ended in a compete tri ii Raph for Murdock judge Coffroth his Friend and adviser declining to make farther inquiry at the of governor Porter s Canu Netious of witnesses. The facts brought Titi. By i hts inquiry were More pm than detrimental to to e Nian agent of the prison which has not Only provided better food for the prisoners but show the expenses for three meals per Day to be twelve and one eleventh cents per convict an average of one half the Cost in he prisons of Kansas Gonne Calicut and other beaten. At the conclusion of the governor Porter stated that there was no suspicion a artist sir. Furdock of any wrong doing that his Elmini stration had been honest and efficient. The directors after consultation determined to rescind the contract and operate the boarding House in the interest of the state. This has heretofore been managed by Dei Uty War Den Baker. Indianapolis Sentinel City feb. 18.�?the investigation into the affairs of the prison North concluded to Day. Governor Porter conducted the of witnesses an4 was determined to get at the Bottom facts. He had been Given Quot pointers Quot by interested parties and was prepared to dissect the entire institution. The principal part of the May was do voted to the Warden s profits on his Garl it a be contract but so Fiir As showing any. A it room dress on the part of or. Murdock Hia a Fifon Aliel far Short of the Mark. V the a Ruth is this manner of. Disposing of the garbage was inaugurated by Tjie Lic pub of a Huau Board in 1s 3, when w. W. Higgins \ iwas Warden. This contract was conditional a Higgins failing to realize upon it the order bras rescinded. Similar contracts have been made by the incoming boards but the it Weir teens invariably a it Money who or Murdock entered into the con a tract october 22, -1831 i Coni Rai to. All information was i by or. Murdock who asked the most thorough investigation of at airs that it might be shown he had complied strictly with the contract. The governor assured him there w is to suspicion of any co or wrong doing on Liis a a to obtain viev of correcting tin evils and turning the moneys realized b3 Sitch into the Treasury. He had done just what any other optic Pijl would and if the contract was Al surd it was the Board s mistake and it his. To Loire Vou cakes. The most damaging disclosure of the whole and one wherein the governor thought he had struck a Bonanza that Thomas Bowers the Cattie purchaser had returned vouchers receipted in Blank and permitted the cleric to Lii in the Arao unt j Aid. This had a crooked look on face but was i silly explain Eil and i think to the utmost satisfaction of the governor. Ijo Weid would Purchase a beef and take a receipt in full in a memorandum Book for i hat purpose. He. Fth Ouirt it Assort ship shape Quot to have the cleric make out the vouchers from the receipts. The Warden Admi the Ltd that this was not exactly business like but As the buyer and cleric Quot were democrats there was not the slightest reason for suspecting that any of these vouchers had been changed in amount irom the origin Iii receipt nor did a comparison of the and vouchers show an discrepancy. The governor Lital almost exhausted Lini Selfon this Subj oot a Brilliant idea struck him. He imagined a Lew Boer so As to redact the Nua Dierof Beeves purchased i acid accordingly tie earnings of the Winlen on hits but when reminded by Ludge Coffroth that the Warden was too smart to Gay for a beef Cor the Sake of the hide he Droit de Tiff subject abruptly reprimanded the cattle purchaser and turned attention to other i loints. tin open to or important discovery was in Tho Sale o cabbage raised on the prison farm. Two Lujus ibid he were sold to i i v co., Lafayette and a Large Nunu her to it Ruddock it co., of the Anie . In the latter House the Warden is the Inion t Artner. The governor was so Pes sent in his inquiry that he developed a he fact that Murdock Eti arged Hij own Louse two c More per head for cabbage than he could have purchased it elsewhere. Other evidence adduced showed that Deputy Warden Baker had with the of the in sectors operated what is called the prison boarding House. Here about fifteen guards Are boarded and Sheri is and of tigers having at the prison were eared for at the rate of is per week. The Deputy s income therefrom is estimated at $1,800, but Itiat gentleman can Only figure it at Kissoo Wii Icli probably the proper figure. After some other testimony the Cio Vernor abruptly closed tiie Case and the directors Reth Edlo prepare their Rei Ort. Which an-1111.11 it contract with Warden Murdock and provides that the profits from hides Greese Bones acid tallow shall go into the s ate exchequer and gives to the wart Len the refuse of the table. The a it Oard also determined to operate the for the Benefit of the a a a. These changes will be inaugurated at once. The resignation of or. Baker As Deputy Wade i was consid lieu and accepted and that official Wili retire Anil 1. The result. The investigation was a Complete vindication for Ardeu Murdock. In act there were no charges against him except that he had made a Little out of a contract with the Board of directors for which they Are alone responsible. The Board made the contract because there was precedent for it anal possibly because other wardens have lost Money by similar agreements. The in Tsiou of i Quot Quot Murdock s integrity did not figure in the is me paper for political effect would have the it Iblis believe nor does the rescinding of the contract reflect upon him. The Board had ample Opportunity to Tell whether the state could make Money by using the prison Oral and if it neglected to do duty that is where the blame attaches. The Ellison. A rom the elicited by governor Porter it was shown that the Nuin gement had been unusually efficient and the prisoners Imd fared far better than in years past. They have plenty of Good wholesome food and particular attention hits been Given to furnishing fresh meat no doubt an uncommon thing in some prisons. One thing is certain the it convicts Are not buffering for inn of food and Are not Likely to As Jong As under the Wardo ship of or. Murdock. The records s it it that the expense.

Quot the bearing Orall the great interests Chili Seis As clearly As i. If there it no peruvian government there is no government to admit our rights and to to establish them a continuance of Calderon s for the time being is vital j of see to All we have at stake and such interests As ours should easily decide Secretary Blaine if aside from that he hesitated Quot in yours of september 12 you said you bad received no such dispatches As Secretary Blaine assured me had been sent. The next time i was at the department the Secretary placed in my hands All the dispatched in he had sent to you.
