Under the reorganization there are how
forty-nine districts all of which were

The desperate efforts of Sheriff F. J.

count of the absence of Sheriff McBhaue

The sheriff's bills for feeding prisoners
were three times scrutinized by the su

passed by the legislature. First a por

of the law, ,
In the Interval between the second de

The fight of the county board members

gave publicity to their efforts and to thu
evils of the fee gruft. Mr. Lynch as a
member of committers which had to deal
with the feeding situation took a prom
