The undersigned Grand Jurors of the
county of Allegheny, of the December ses•
sion, 1868, beg leave, outside of any ; regular
or formal presentment they may hereafter • ;
make; to .call ,your especial attention to
L .an
some matters immediate .and .pressing
importance, as it , occurs to them, and
through you th attention of the Commis
sioners ipf_the uaty and the . Controller,
whose 'proviiice "If - wilr be; as they are , ' in'
formed, totarry these views into practical)
Iffect, and prov ide means for the payment
'-the same.: /
First--We . eg to direct attention 10-the
safety, or rat er the total absence of all
safety of the Public Records and arehives
of the county] in the office of the Piothono
tug. Weeded° simply to thedariger from
fire. Originally these records Sind papers
were in a portion' of the building esteemed
to be,' and *filch; as . we believe i was and
now is afire proof," Some yea rs - ago, for
some Tenon nor other, they were , removed
up stairs to the now occupied by the
Prothonotary;hence their present danger.
The room is not trianysense fire proof, and
by accidental Or'intenttonal burning of the'
buildinVor that' portion of it occupied by
them, their loss would be inevitable. No
human agency Could save them, for to them
water Would bees diasstrons as tire. The
cerssequeeces CV such ri dastrucliolil can
hardly be „conceived, since almost ever,
member Of our community would be af
fected hyilt, Io our judgment it would
certainly — be cheaper ' tor' olir county to'
build a new .Court„ House, at double the
cost ofour present expensive but misers
bly;Contrived structure, than run any such
risk as this. "Confusion worse confound-
ed" would beyond all question, result
,froin-such a calamity, and its effects would
be felt in every. avenue and ramification of
our huslitese,commenity. To the judges of
the 'Court, and the,members of the bar, this
must necessarily be -Specially evident, and
We consider it only, necessary to mention
the fact, in order to seenre their hearty Co
operation in tine Changes we propose.
,We beg new to mention,the means for
their safety, which a practical examination
of 'the matter enables us to suggest and
• moat earnestly recommend. We propose
that the papers, records,etc., be inane-,
dietely'lreplated in the fire4netif''" 'rant
*whence they came, and that so many of the
adjoining rooms be added as may be neces
sary for their proper accemmodation: By
patting-up iron doors, lifting up the wooden
floors in these rooms and replacing them
with stone ones,`the fire proof character of
these rooms would be established- beyond
all cintetiem -
• We. propose, =fmther, that abroad and
commodious seaway be opened from the
rotunda,- leading down into these rooms,
and that by stone fire proof partitions at
either end of the mine so much at the ball
adjoining these rooms as maybe necessary
shall he 'devoted to. the purposes already
indicated. This:ball • addition will largely
increase the storage futilities necessary,
assist ,materially in. accomplishing . this
mach-to be desired change, awl in no. ay
prejudice the occupation of. that portion of
theilidlding, or In any. way, es we learn,

lent as they are, they be at least kept warm
and clean, and that „if the persons having
present charge will not do so, they be dis
miesed forthwith, and some competent per
sons placed in their stead.
This relief, however, would be only tem
porary, although It would be Most welcome.
The whole arrangement let radically defeo
tive, and can Only be corrected by the erec
tion of . others in. 'different parts • of the
building and.under its roof. 'Closets, more
numerous and larger; for the different sexes,
and for their exclusive use, and also for the
accommodation of jurors and others , in
different parts of the building, should Ca..'
tainly be erected. t, ,We beg the attention of
