The Susquehanna Valley Home respectfully represents, thiton August 4th, 
1886, Arthur Pike, a ward of Chenango County, duly committed to this institu- 
tion for maintenance, fell from a swing while at a picnic, and by such fall re- 
ceived serious and permanent injuries. Further, that the Home has taken the 
most efficient care of said boy, calling a physician on seventy sis Beveral occa- 
sions, besides special consultations, and furnishing two careful nurses day and 
night for a period of over nine months. 

This was done entirely as an act of humanity, there being no obligation by 
charter that the Horn 9 should in anywise act as a hospiLal, and was doue under 
the protest of some of the managers of the institution. 

The Home respectfully prays your Honorable Board, that if consistent with 
just appreciation of facts, you will afford us partial relief from the heavy ex - 
pensa incurred in case above recited, the amount to be left entirely to your dis- 
cretion. Respectfully, 

SUSQUEHANNA VALLEY HOME.

Mr. Smith, from the special committee to take charge of the Appeal 
Case, presented the following report of the committee : 

To the Board of Supervisors of Clienango County: 

Your Special Committee, appointed at the last annual session of this Board, 
namely on the sixteenth day of November, 1886, to attend to all matters connected 
with the appeal by said Board of Supervisors, from the decision of the General 
Term, Fourth Department, in the case of the appeal of the town of Norwich, from 
the equalization of said Board of Supervisors in the year 1882; would respect- 
fully report- 
That during the present year the above entitled appeal has been taken to the 
Court of Appeals of the State of New York, where it was argued in April last, 
and the judgment of the General Term was affirmed with costs in the following 
endorsement by the Court of Appeals upon the back of the papers: 
"judgment affirmed, all concur." 

Your committee would further report that no expense has been incurred by 
the committee during the current year, except for counsel fees and disburse- 
ments, amounting to the sum of one hundred dollars 

Now, therefore, for the purpose of finally closing up the work of the commit- 
tee, and in compliance with the decision of the Court of Appeals of the State of 
New York, we offer the following : 

Whereas, The State A ssessors in their determination of the appeal brought 
by the town of Norwich, from the equalization of this Board for the year 1882. 
found that Norwich had been equalized too high by the sum of two hundred 
eighty thousand one hundred and seventy-nine dollars., and that the tax levied 
and collected on said excess of $280,179 was the sum of $1,288.82, which should be 
credited to said town, and levied and collected from the following named towns of 
said county ; the sum specified opposite the name of each town to be levied on 
such town, as its proportion of said sum, in the assessment and collection of 
taxes for the current year:

Sherburne 277 69 

Total $1,288 82 

And Whereas, It apppears that in determining the amount of the county and 
State tax. paid by the town of Norwich in such excess, an error was made by the 
State Assessors, and that the amount should have been found by them to be $1,- 
174.13 instead of $1,288.82; and 

Whereas, The interest on the sa'd $1,174.13 will amount on the first day of 
February, 1888, to the sum of $297.79; and 

Whereas, Upon the appeal to the General Term of the Supreme Court and to the 
Court of Appeals of the State of New York, said decisions of the Board of State 
Assessors, as modified, has been affirmed with costs to the town of Norwich and 
against the county of Chenango, and judgment has heretofore been duly entered 
pursuant to the decision of the said General Term and the Court of Appeals. 

Resolved, That the sum of fourteen hundred seventy-one dollars and ninety - 
two cents ($1,471.92) be levied and assessed upon the towns of Afton, Bainbridge, 
Columbus, Coventry, Greene, Guilford, New Berlin and Sherburne, in the like

town in the year 1882. on the excess of $280,179, in the equalization aforesaid, ac- 
cording to the determination of the said State Board of Assessors on said appea 1 
as corrected, and also 

Resolved, That the sum of four thousand four hundred and twenty-seven dol - 
lars and ninety cents, less the amount of the stenographer's bill, (Mrs. J. R. 
Palmer) of four hundred and sixty-two dollars and eight cents ($462.08,) paid Jan- 
uary 8th. 1884, (see report of Special Committee on page 33 of Journal of 1884) 
leaving the sum of three thousand and seventy dollars and two cents ($3,070.02) to 
be levied and assessed upon the twenty towns of the County of Chenango, except

We would further report that we have visited the county farm and find that 
the building? are kept in good order and the inmates well cared for. 

We repeat the recommendations made by the committee of last year that an 
appropriation be made by the Supervisors of tbis county as soon as they feel 
able to bear the burden, that the horse barn, wheel house and wood shed be re- 
built, the present buildings being unsafe and unsuitable. 

We also recommend that the halls and stairways in the poor house be wain- 
scoted and papered, and that an addition be erected whereby the idiotic may 
be kept separate fiom the paupers of sound mind and cleanly habits. 

We also find that the amount of $118.27 in the case of W. M. Coe, in dispute 
last year, as between the town of Plymouth and the county, has been paid to 
the County Treasurer during this session, and since his annual report to the 
Board, and the county reimbursed for all costs in the matter. 

We also find that the Superintendent has received and credited to the town 
of Sherburne, $104.50, and to the town of Guilford, $106.05, which do not appear 
upon the County Treasuier's report, but for which he holds the receipts of said 
Treasurer, dated since his report We have requested the Treasurer to mark 
said credits that they may not be deducted from the poor biils of said towns 
next year.

On motion of Mr. Hakes, the bill was laid on the table.

of the County Equalization appointed at the annual session in 1886, 
made a verbal report as to the action of the committte.

Juliand were appointed a committee to act in the matter of the 
County Equalization as they should deem best.

Carried. 

Committee— Messrs. Owen, Shepardson and Brown. 
Mr. Smith called from the table the following communication from 
D. L. Atkyns, Esq. 

Sherburne, November 24, 1887. 
To the Board of Supervisors of Chenango County: 

Gentlemen— I ask permission to call your attention to a matter which should 
be of deep concern to every person in this county, and which, as I think, has 
been too long neglected. It is the matter of doing simple justice to the mem- 
ory of the brave, honest-hearted, loyal soldiers of Chenango County who laid 
down their lives to preserve our country from dismemberment and ruin in the 
war of 1861-5. 

I had hoped to be permitted to address your body upon the subject in person, 
but not being able to do so (if permitted by you) I send this communication, 



53 

sincerely hoping it will receive consideration, as the subject, not the letter, 
shall deserve. 

In 1865 and 1866 when the memory of the sacrifices made, when the many no- 
ble forms and faces had not been so long oat of our sight, and when only vol- 
untary aid could be had. several meetings of representative men from the sev- 
eral towns were held at the Court House, at which only one voice was express- 
ed, and that in favor of a monument in commemoration of our fallen heroes. 
Resolutions were so passed and all bid fair to be successful, when the idea of 
town monuments began to be mooted and that led to such want of harmony 
as caused the whole project to fall through. 

As a result— Sherburne has a fine monument- -the gift of one ot her noblest 
citizens. New Berlin has one— the work of her own patriotic people. I am not 
aware (there may be) of any other. Twentv-i wo years, almost a quarter of a* 
century, has passed, and nothing has been done by way of public commemora- 
tion of the faithful, loyal, heroic boys, who left happy homes, mother, father, 
sister, wife, children, all, and gave up life that the nation might live. 

Much, not enough, is being done for the living, but the memory of the brave 
from Linclilaen, Pitcher, Otselic, Pharsalia, German, McDonough, Smithville, 
Coventry, Guilford— from most of the towns of our county is dying out— is re- 
called only by near friends, and in broken households. One cannot dilate in 
such a communication. This treatment of our holy dead is unjust— it is cruel- 
It is not the fulfilment of the assurances uttered when they went to do battle 
for u* and for our homes and country. You know it all, you see it all, and 
nothing farther need be said. 

Shall it be so longer ? May not local jealousies be laid aside upon a question 
like this? May not duty, simple justice to the dead be done, without opposition 
which can have no basis but selfishness ? If not, then for all time this cruel neg- 
lect, born of conceit, will leave four-fifths of the dead martyrs to duty and lib- 
erty, (of Chenango County) unknown and forgotten. Hundreds sleep in south- 
ern swamps and fields with not a board or ston>i to mark their resting place, 
while if right was done, somewhere in this county would stand a granite block, 
bearing their names and an inscription as touching as that which for hundreds 
of years told the passer by of the glorious deeds done at Thermopylea. 

In 1866, by Chap. 173 Laws N. Y. 1886, power was given Boards of Supervisors 
of counties, by a two-thirds vote, to raise and appropriate money, as they deem 
necessary for the erection and repairs of such monument. For $20,000 or less 
a monument can be erected which shall be a pride to oar county and a just 
tribute to our dead heroes. 

I do not assume that your body would feel justified in taking any definite 
action attnis tune, but it certainly should pass some resolution upon the sub- 
ject, which can be published in the county papers, and thus the attention of 
each town called, so that each Supervisor may, at the next annual meeting of 
your body, know what action his town would approve in the matter. 

Gentlemen, hoping this may receive attention at your hands, and having no- 
apology to offer for its lengib, otuer than the nature of its subiect, 

I remain your obedient servant, 

D. L ATKYNS. 

Mr. Smith offered the following : 

Resolved, That the communication of D. L. Atkyne , Esq., be received, placed 
upcn the minutes of this Board, and published in the Journal of Proceedings tor 
the current year. 



54 

Resolved, That the subject of making some proper recognition of the services 
rendered on thd battle fields of the Civil War by the brave sons of Chenango, 
hereby elicits our svmpithy, and we recommend that ac ion be taken at an 
early day to commemorate the deeds of these valiant men, by the erection of a 
suitable monument or building, to be located at some central point in this 
county. 

Resolved, That we as member* of this Board, will make an effort to ascertain 
the sentiment of the taxpayers of our respective towns on thi* subject, to the 
end that some plau may be adopted to carry into effect the spirit ot these reso- 
lutions.

County Orders and Town Abstracts were delivered by the Clerk to 
the Supervisors of the several towns. 

Mr. Lottridge moved that the Board adjourn sine die. 

The Chairman, before putting the motion to adjourn, thanked the 
Board for the harmony which had prevailed among all the members, 
and the diligence and attention which each and all had bestowed in 
the performance of all their duties. 

He, himself, had endeavored to perform the duties devolved upon 
him as their Chairman, without partiality and with a regard to the 



57 

best interests of the county at large, as well as the interests of the in- 
dividual members. If he had failed in any part of those duties, it 
was an error of the head, not the heart. During his several years ser- 
vice on previous Boards of Supervisors he had not known of any ses- 
sion that bad been any more harmonious, or one where the members 
had each and all performed their work more faithfully than had been 
done at the present session. 

He wished all the members a safe journey home and very many 
years of prosperity in the future. 

Mr. Lottridge's motion was then carried unanimously, and the 
Chairman declared the Board of Supervisors of Chenango County of 
1887, adjourned without day. 



I hereby certify the foregoing to be a correct copy of the original record <>f the 
proceedings of the Board of Supervisors of the County of Chenango, at their 
annual session in November, 1887.

SPECIAL jYOTICE TO MAGISTRATES. 

In pursuance of directions at the late session of the Board of 
Supervisors of Chenango County, the Chairman and Clerk of the 
Board hare effected an arrangement with the managers of the Onon- 
daga Penitentiary at Syracuse, commencing January 1st, 1888, and 
ending January 1st, 1889, whereby persons convicted of misdemeanors 
may be sentenced for not less than ninety days to that institution. 

Magistrates will therefore be careful in making sentence to such in- 
stitution for at least ninety days, as no convict will be reeeived there 
for any less period of time. Shorter term convicts will be maintained 
at the county jail as heretofore. The amount paid for maintenance 
under this contract is $1.50 per week. 

Dated January 5, 1868.
