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 tire transacting of the
county business, and to provide suit%
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 tire-proof vau.ts and
safes, for the safs keeping of county
records, and to provide a safe jail of
sufficient strength to hold prisoners.
And Whereas. Sherman county's
court bouse is an old brick structure
and in poor repair, and not fireproof,
and wholly inadequate fo^ the ser
vices required and unsanitary in
every 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 tit rough necessity
having hired bank vaults outside of:
the court house.
The county jail is an old frame
structure, and is not of sufficient
strength to bold prisoners, and is un- j
healthful and unfit for use.
And Whereas. By reason of the
aforesaid condition of the court house |
and jail of said county the record title 1
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 anv
unfortunates who may have to be in-1
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^tateof Ne
braska, in adjourned regular session
met at the court bouse in Loup City.|
Nebraska, county seat of said coun
ty. and the usual place of meeting of ■
said beard, on the 19th day of May.
1914. That there be submitted to |
the legal voters of said county at a
special election to be held therein on ,
Tuesday, the 30th day of J uDe. 1914,
proposition which 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
