Presentment of Grand Jury.
HK1TBMUKR TEBM OK COURT, 1893.
To His Honor I. D. Withcrspoon, Pre
s ill in t? JHttgC :
Tho Grand Jury in making this, their
final presentment lor the year 1893,
would respectfully say they havo en
deavored to discharge the duties devolv
ing upon them without partiality, favor
or affection as Grand Jurors.
1st, Wo congratulate ourselves, as
well as the County, in saying there were
only two criminal cases for trial at this
2d, It having been brought to tho no
tice of tho Grand Jury that some timo in
July last a horso was stolen from tho
premises of Mr. M. B. Poole, of this
County, by one Charles Jones, for which
a reward was offered by Mr. Poole for
tho apprehension of the thief and the
delivery of tho horse, and tho horso was
recovered by Mr. l'oole and tho offender,
Charles Jones, was caught in Spartan*
burg County, and tho case was made up
without bringing the offender Charles
.Jones to justice, wo recommend that
Charles Jones ho brought to trial, with
Mr. M. 13. Poole as tho most prominent
witness in the case.
3d, That our lion. Senator and mem
bers of tho House of Representatives for
Laurens County would use their influ
ence in the meeting of the next General
Assembly in having the Act amended
relating to tho execution of convicts
from being private to be made public,
so far as Laurens County is concerned,
believing this change will subserve a
more potent and salutary influence over
tho many, than the few may perchance,
to witness tho execution of the same.
Ith, The drainage Act has been brought
by your Honor to tho attention of the
Grand Jury. We would recommend to
our efficient County Commissioners to
look after this Act passed by our Gen
eral Assembly. Knowing they have ad
vertised several months ago to have all
streams running through lands owned
by them cleared of all obstructions by
September 1st, 1803, and that all offend
ers bo made to show cause why this du
ty baa not been done, there is a dam
mado on North Creek, near tho tank, on
S. T. Bailey's plantation, made by the
G., C. and N. Railroad, which is an ob
struction in tho creek, thereby causing
sickness in tho neighborhood. AVo re
commend that tho obstruction he remov
ed at once.
5th, We find that there are several in
stances within our knowledge where
there aro no titles recorded in the Clerk's
office of land being bought by the school
trustees for school purposes. Wo re
commend that the school trustees he re
quired to have nil such land properly
filed in the Clerk's office at once.
Gth, The Indexes of the Clerk's office
aro entirely filled up and nearly worn
out. We recommend that new ones be
furnished said office, with an additional
foe for re-indexing tho same.
7th, We are pleased to say that all
former recommendations made are being
rapidly forced to completion by our
County Commissioners. Tho public
highways aro being put in order and
good condition by the road overseers.
