ing jurisdiction of criminal matters
of the county.
The territorial jurisdiction of the
Grand Jury, like that of the Court,
extends to all parts of the county
and is confined to cases nrisine in
As to subject matter, its juris
diction is also limited to those
classes of cases coining within the
jurisdiction of the Court, that is to
those cases which can bu prosecut
ed in this Court and in which this
Court in case of verdict of guilty
can pronounce the sentence of the
law in punishment.
Hence, the Grand Jury general
ly has nothing to do with a large
number of classes of eases of wrong
doing which are minor or lesser
offenses, not amounting toSblonies
and which smaller oftenses are
tried in and punished by the order
of our District Courts.
I refer to this last, not as alimi
tation upon the Court and the
Jury, but because some people
seem to think it your special duty
to investigate and present cases
which are not only within the
jurisdiction of this Court, am
