CHARGE TO GRAND JURY
Brief Synopsis of (Charge of Special
Jutlere JIcLeod to Grand Jury
at Opening of Court.
Judge McLeod stated in his charge
to the grand jury that after ha\ing
spent a pleasant week in Newberry in
the court of common pleas, he was glad
to open the general session court. He
stated that he did not have any extraordinary
suggestions or charge to
make at chis term of the court, as he
presumed the conditions and affairs
of the county were in good shape, that
nothing had been called to his attention
and no special request had been
made to him.
His honor further stated tha there
were certain things which the court
might, with propriety, direct the grand
jury's attention, those things which go
in a general way to make up peace
and good order of a community at
large. He said that our court houses
are clearing houses of society, that last
week during the common pleas court
the business of the county which the
citizens were unable to adjust among
themselves was taken up and this
week affairs which society at large is
unabie to adjust anywhere else except
The court further stated that time
was when the sheriff of the county
was looked upon as a hangman, bui
now when you walk down the street
and meet policemen clothed in uniform
and badge of authority, we ought to
regard, and children ought to be
taught to regard, not as an executive
of the law, but as one who stands as
a badge of protection.
His honor further stated that we
are largely an agricultural county and
in order that the people in the county
may live a? safely as those in the towns
in many of the countie of the state
there has been established what is
known as rural police and Newberry
county should have rural police to the
extent that it is necessary.
His honor charged the jury very
fully as to the rural police, stating that
:he idea that they were collectors of
revenues was entirely wrong.
The court further charged the jury
that they had the care and supervision
of all" the county affairs, as to seeing
that the roads are kept^n proper condition
and so on. He said that he had
occasion to go over some or the roads
in the county recently and found that
in a good many places they were in
The court further said tnat there are
certain crimes which more directly
afreet Fcciptv than perhaps any others,
stating among these the crime of adultery
and that the jury should, if called
to their attention, bring the persons
">efcre them, no matter what his or her
Presentment of Grand Jury.
State of South Carolina,
County of Newberry.
To His Honor Judge 'Thomas G.
We, the grand jury f^r Newberry
lounty at the sitting of this term of
30urt wish to make the following presentations
of such matters as has been
brought before us for our consideration:
First. We wish to express to the
judge presiding our appreciation and
thanks for his charge and instructions.
We have examined and audited the
books of the county supervisor, coun:y
superintendent of education and
county treasurer and found the books
leatly kept and in a first class condi:ion.
We have examined the offices
3nd books of all the other county ofices
and find them neatly kept and all
work well done and up to date. Have
?xamined the books of the county magistrates
and find them well kept and
complying with the law.
We find the county home and jail
well cared for and kept in a sanitary
condition so far as the conditions and
appurtainances will allow. There are
conditions existing at the jail which
is the fault of the construction of the
building and its fitting, which we deplore,
but see no way clear at this time
to correct them, without our state delegation
in its wisdom and forethought
can give us relief either by riateria1.
nhanffps in thp nrpspnt iai' bmldine.
or. which would be, in our judgment,
far better, give us a new ard modern
jail building near the court house.
We have received committees making
complaints as to county roads and
work and have same under advisement.
We have passed on all bills presented
to us and have returned same to
We wish to commend the sheriff and
his deputies for their diligence, and
all the officers of the county for their
faithful and efficient work.
we recommend mat our cierK De
paid the usual fee.
