CANNOT REPAIR COURT HOUSE.
To Complete the lusk Will Cost from
$30,000 to $60,000, nnd tho
Funds Aro Lacking.
The report of the grand jury con
damning the court house roof a unsafe
uud recommending thut prompt and
adequate meant be employed to "put
th ouildlug iu good order and repair
and late condition" has encited much
lutereit concerning the detect of tine
maguittcent atiuoture. When th mem
bera ol the grand jury examined the
roof they were i sully alarm d at it
condition Thev found that thu
Iron sheeting, with which the Iron
trues work la covered, hae rotted
away and that thoro is nothing
10 which the slates can be
fattened, rendering it necessary to
supplant the sheeting with n (ileos of
wood Whenever 11 slate has to be nailed
dow n One of in iron girder iiied in
toe npper purt of the tmildiug wus
found broken from the strain to which
it had bean tubjected, crucks in tho
upper walla were vltlble an J th gu
eral appearance mob that the jnrori
110 doubt fell tho alarm they rxpraatod
in tbelr return. That tho building
sadly needs repair is certain, but it Is
not probable that anything can be
done this year.
In tin interview with the couuty
cotutnitllonert yesterday afternoon a
TaiBl'MI reporter was told that the
con niton of the county finances ia such
as to almost forbid the very thought ot
tho iusdd repairs, the cost of which
would be from $80,000 to ia0,000. It
will be remembered that it decision of
the supreme oonrt compete tbeoommit
lionert to this year pxy uver to Lu
lerne county $10,000 In addition to
this the new fee bill greatly increases
the cost of commonwe tltn cases, ami
merely will largely add to th demaud
upon tiie funds of the county for the
ptymeut of expenses that canuot be
avoided. In view of tbes facts, there
for, the commissioners slate that they
cannot lea tae w iy clear to make tbe
repairs dem ind-J.
It is the intbntlon of the commission
ers to thoroughly repair tue building
when the job is undertaken. The up
per walls will be ulreiiglheutd and ex
tended two feet higher, me latter im
provement being necessary to permit
the 1 1 1 1 1 d up and use for offices of the
rooms iu (ho upper story. A new roof
will be adds I und inch other changet
made as ure needed to put the court
house iu sate and suitalilo cou lition.
All this will involve a large expendi
ture, ant the com:nisioner topj that
the repairs can be deferred
other year, when provisions are to be
made for tho task in band. However,
suonld tbe condition ot the building
render immediate attention necessary,
tuey will move in the mater and see
th at everything it made at safe us DOM
