On Monday the grand jury was
selected by his Honor, Judge F. F.
Montgomery of the 7th District Court, ne
undter the new constituio. rep
The articles of the constitution patr<
which provides for this change reads child
as follows: "The General Assetmbly deue
shall provide for the selection of com- sharj
peetent and intelligent jurors. All
cases in which the punishment may
not be at hard labor shall, until other- Pr
wise provided by law, which shall not
he until 1904, be tried by the Judge
without a jury. Cases wherein the SI
punishment may be at bard labor
shall te tried by a jury of fire, all of 2
whom must concur in a verdict.
Cases inl which the punishment is
necessarily at hard labor, by a jury of STI
twelve, nine of whom concurring may
render a verdict. Cases in which the
pIunishment may be capital, by a jury
of twelve, all of whom must concur to
render a verdict. B,
"The General Assembly shall pre- by t
vide for the drawing of juries for the or L
trial of civil and criminal cases. A pri
grand jury of twelve, nine of whom hut
must concur to find an indictmeut, Sale
shall be rmpanelcd In each parish ON
twice in each year, and shall remain in
office until a succeeding grand jury is and
empaueled; except in the parish of unt
Cameron, in which at least one grand pr
jury shall be einpanelod each year. Ie
"h'be district Judges shall have anl- roll
thority to try at any time, all misde- ere
Imeanors, and when the jury is waived, i Is
Sall cases not necessarily punishable at unt
. hard labor, and to receive pleas of at t
I guilty in eases less than capital. pai
It will thus be seen that the grandr lintm
e jury which was heretofore composed:,,,
of sixteen men, will hereafter have ear
twelve, ayd thley will have to serve six
months instead of three.
