Whereas, Under the laws of the
State of Nebraska it is made the
duty of the County Board of Super
visors of each county in the state to
provide for a safe and suitable court
house for the transacting of the
county business, and to provide suita
ble offices for the accommodation of
the county officers and court rooms
and offices for the accommodation of
the several courts of record of the
county, and fire-proof vaults and
safes, for the safs keeping of county
records, and to provide a safe jail of
sufficient strength to bold prisoners.
And Whereas. Sherman county’s
court house is an old brick structure
and in poor repair, and not fireproof,
and wholly inadequate for the ser
vices required and unsanitary in
everv particular, and the vaults are
not fireproof and not of sufficient ca
pacity to hold the records of the
county, and many of the valuable
records of the county affecting titles
to real estate are in no way protected
against fire, and some of the more
valuable records are protected by
reason of the board through necessity
having hired bank vaults outside of
the court house.
me county jail is an oia trame
structure, and is not of sufficient
strength to bold prisoners, and is un
healthy 1 and unfit for use.
And Whereas, By reason of the
aforesaid condition of the court house
and jail of said county the record title
to each tract of real estate in said
county is in danger, also the court
records and the records involving the
estates of deceased persons are unsafe
and liable to be destroyed by tire or
otherwise, which might result in
endless litigation and great expense.
And the unsanitary condition of our
jail is dangerous to the health of any
unfortunates who may have to be in
carcerated therein, by reason whereof
the county may become liable in dam
ages to those confined therein.
Now, therefore be it resolved by the
Board of County Supervisors of said
county of Sherman, in the State of Ne
braska, in adjourned regular session
met at the court bouse in Loup City,
Nebraska, oounty seat of said coun
ty, and the usual place of meeting of
said board, on the 18th day of Kay,
1914. That there be submitted to
the legal voters of said county at a
special election to be held therein on
Tuesday, the 30tb day of J une, 1914,
proposition whioh is set out fully in
the following form of notice, which
is made a part of this resolution,
which said proposition it will be
necessary to carry, in order to enable
said board to provide a suitable and
proper court bouse and jail for said
T« Am Legal Utters «f Sberaai
