when the questions have been of a public character, so far as time would permit, they have been carefully considered and answered.

Schedule “H” contains an elaborate abstact of the reports of the various prosecuting attorneys, for the year ending June 30, 1898, showing the total number of prosecutions for each particular offense, etc.

Schedule "I" contains a recapitulation of the business of the prosecuting attorneys of the various counties of the State, giving the name and address of each prosecuting attorney, together with the number of prosecutions and the result thereof, brought by him. This table has been carefully prepared, and will doubtless be very convenient for reference.

It is needless to say that there is a vast amount of work to be done in this department—it is possibly to neglect it. For four years I have done my best to do this work—with what success, the records of the State reveal.

Respectfully submitted,

FRED A. MAYNARD,

Attorney General.
