IN BOARD OF ALDERMEN, January 5, 1895. The special committee of the Board of Aldermen appointed to visit and inspect the jail and other houses of detention in the county of Suffolk present herewith their second semi-annual report :
The committee visited the jail January , 1895, and found everything in a neat and clean condition, and did not discover any special cause for criticism, either in the care of the jail or in the quality of the food furnished to the prisoners.
In view of the fact that the various public institutions in charge of the commissioners have been under investigation by the Board of Aldermen during the past year, the inspectors have made no special visits of inspection since their last report was presented. It appears to your committee that the investigation may be considered to have fulfilled the requirements of the law, so far as the inspection of the institutions is concerned, and they accordingly refrain from reporting more specifically in the matter, believing that the report made by the Aldermen as an investigating committee
ein bodies all that is required in the way of recommendations or criticism.
The reports of the superintendents and officials in charge of the several institutions are appended thereto as a part of this report.
