Cole, Sheriff of the county of Jefferson, relative to the escape of Benjamin Judkins from the jail of that county, sentenced upon conviction for the crime of rape to twenty years imprisonment in the penitentiary, report:

That they have had the same under advisement, and in consideration of no legislative provision having been made in time past, authorizing the Executive to offer rewards for fugitives from justice, to meet contingencies of this nature, as such cases very rarely occur, and as any remedy of the kind would probably prove ineffectual in the detection or discovery of the individual who is the subject matter of this report, inasmuch as some five months have elapsed since his escape, and as it so generally believed that a new administration of public affairs is so soon to be assumed, when this defect in our laws will doubtless be provided for, the committee have agreed with me in the recommendation that any legislative action upon this subject may with little or no impropriety be deferred for a more suitable and convenient season.
