page Booklet which will be sent

The delay in the announcement
by oilr Assessor of dates for regis
tering under section 5, referred to
in our parer twod weeks ago, was
occasioned by the failure of the
Secretary of State to print and
send out the books required by 1
law for this work, and was no fault
of our worthy Assessor, but rath
or a credit-to his efficiency, since
if he had advertised the dates, and i
the books hadn't arrived in time a
great disappointment would have
followed. The books are here and
the work is begun. c

Final Report of the Grand Jury.
I- To the Honorable E. G. Hunter,
r Judge of the 10th District Court:
We, your Grand Jury, beg leave
to submit this the final report of
our labor at the present term of
the District Court.
e We have been in session for six
consecutive (lays and have given
our whole attention to the duties
imposed upon us.
We have examined a total of 32
cases, returned 11 true hill-. and
ignored '21 presentments. Of the
true bills returned 2 werefor mur
Ider, 1 for manslaughter, the rc
mainder for misdemeanors.
We find the custom and habit of
carrying concealed weapons is still
very prevalent, notwithstanding
the severity of the sentences im
posed by your honorable court.
We find the courthose clean and
neat and carefully attended to in
every particular. We visited and
examined the jail and -found same
clean as could be expected, con
sidering the nature and disposition'
of a very large majority of the in
mates. The yard around the jail
might be kept in a more cleanly I
We would suggest that the im
provement committee of the Police
Jury examine carefully the iron
flooring in the cage in front of the
condemned cells. This floor is
worn out and should be looked af

We visited the State Normal
School and are'gla4 to be able to
say that everything in and around I
the premises would indicate that
the institution, its government and
management in every particular
were in the hands of very efficient
officials. he institution has now
upon its rolls 320 pupils.
We visited the sheriff's and
clerk's offices and found same well
attended to by these officials.
Thanking your honor for the
lucid charge given us, which was
of grgat assistance in the discharge
of our duties, and also the sheriff,
clerk aid our door-keeper for fa
vors and courtesies extended, we
beg to be fially discharged.
