THE QBAND JUEY
IIhs ITinlshod Its Labors, and submitted
the Following Final Report.
To tho Hon. Owon T. Bouso, District
Judgo of tho district court,
Your grand jury rcspoctfully
submit this, their final report:
Wo havo examined and reported
to tho Court tho following cases,
and havo found truo bills of indictment
Grand larceny, 8,
Assault with intont to kill, 1.
Wo havo oxamined and ignored
criminal charges in nino cases.
Committees havo made roports
On office of board of supervisors
the report of committee is appended
hereto and is hereby referred
Committoo on office of probate
judgo roport that they rccommond
that all tho old papers on lilo bo
properly laboled aud securely
boxed and deposited in some othor
place of safo keeping. Wo find all
books and records proporly kopt.
Tho committee on district attorney's
offico report everything
thoreto proporly kept and
in good shape.
Tho committoo on county treasurer's
offico reports that tho books
of account aro neatly kept and
that a proper system of book-keeping
is practised. Wo think that
tho accounts, so far as wo could ox-amino
them, aro correct.
The comraitteo on shoriff's offico
roports tho books and papers apparently
well kopt and overything
portaining theroto as it should bo.
Tho committoo on county recorder's
offico roports tho rocords
noatly written up and indexes
properly mado and the business
Tho committee on jail reports it
clean, the prisoners well fed and
well treated. Wo call tho atten
tion of tho sheriff to tho condition
of tho water closet on the court
house grounds, it appearing to be
unclean, owing to tho vault being
filled up and cxposod, probably
owing to the recent flood.
In the examination of somo cases
which havo como to us from tho
justice of tho pcaco courts we find
that the law has not been complied
with in all respects. Soveral cases
should havo boon tried and disposed
of in .tho .justice's court and
saved tho attending its
reference to thodistrict court.
The justice of tho peace at tho
oounty seat-should ask the advice
of the district attorney of tho
county before issuing warrants of
arrest. If this courso had been
pursuod at.least ono caso would
never havo been brought beforo us,
and a 'largo exponso saved to tho
county. Wo furthor find that Act
No. 13, of thesession laws of 1893
have not been generally complied
with by justices of tho peace, in
referonco to requiring witnesses ia
criminal cases to give bond to appear
and testify in tho district
court where defendants aro held
to answer. A compliance with
said law would .result in' a largo
saving m money ito tho public and
timo oi jurors and all persons having
business beforo tho court.
W. C. Uridwell,
To the foreman of the grand jury:
The committoo appointed to examine
tho oiSco of tho board of
supervisors of this county would
respectfully report that thoy havo
mado as full .an investigation as the
time at tneir (disposal would per
Wo find tho books of tho offico
well kept, clean And legible. Tho
papers and vouchers properly filed
and accounts Wjith tho other county
officers apparently properly and
correctly entered and the system
of book-keeping business liko.
Wo find that the board of supervisors
employed Judge Josoph Kib-by
as attorney to appear at tho
Supremo Court in the caso involving
tho legality of tho County
Classification Bill and ordered the
clerk o draw a warrant in his
vor for $250 to pay his expenses
and as a retainer to reprcient this
county in the caso without any do-
mand bomg filed. Before the said
warrant was paid by tho treasurer
ho was enjoined by tho district attorney
and tho warrant has not
been paid. It is oxpectod that tho
injunction will bo mado perpetual
against tho county treasurer, so
that nothing can bo paid on that
account. Wo further believe that
Judgo Kibby did not render any
services in tho caso and has no legal
demand against tho county on
Wo find that tho road ovorsocrs
appointed by tho board do not file
quarterly roports as roquired by
tho law governing highways, and
consequently do not see how tho
board aro advised as to tho manner
in which thoir duties are performed,
and. especially , as to whether
tho persons owing road work aro
called out and porform that duty.
From the present bad condition of
tho road wo infer that tho work is
not done as it should bo. Wo call
tho attontion of tho board of supervisors
to this mattor as it greatly
affects tho tax payors and citizens
Wo find that some of tho road
ovorsoors havo resigned and no
others havo boon appointed to take
Wo find that the total amount of
indebtedness of the county in demands
which havo boen allowed
and aro unpaid amounts to 825,-914.03,
of which about 811,000.00
camo over from the previous year.
Tho amount of revenue from
propcrtj' tax of 1895 that can bo
appropriated for tho paymont of
theso demands amounts to about
824,000.00 providing all tho tax is
paid. Adding a probable sum of
810,000.00 for oxponses of tho las't
quarter of 1895, and wo find tho
county will onter on tho now year
of 1890 with an indebtedness of

tho sheriff's offico shortly after 5

Deputy Benbrook wont out to the

but did not overtake him. Nono
of tho Indians who wero shot are

Tho Tontos havo beon camped

few of tho bucks havo passes and
aro engaged in selling wood, and
blowing in the proceeds for whisky.
Others of tho bucks are hero without
permission of tho agent and
thrive without work, living off tho
industry of tho squaws. According
to rumor, tho Tontos havo beon
browing and Imbibing

who reported tho shooting
said ho saw two bottles of whisky
in tho camp.
Far too many passes havo boen

At Jho recent term of the District
Court, County Treasurer Dysart
brought an action against tho
Board of Supervisors asking that
thoy bo compelled by a writ of
mandmus to appoint a Tax Collector
for tho county, Mr. Dysart taking
tho view that sinco tho
of tho now Classification Law
thoro was no statuo providing for
compensation for tho services of
Tax Collector, and no person designated
by law to perform that
District Attomoy Jones, assisted
by Judge Moorman, representing
tho Board of Supervisors,
to tho complaint, holding that
tho Board had no power to appoint
a Tax Collector, that tho writ of
mandanjus should be denied, and
that tho duties of Tax Colloctor
wero to bo performed by tho county
Judgo Barnes -and Judgo Edwards
represented Mr. Dysart, and,
on Monday last tho case, with all
tho law points involved was earnestly
argued by tho lawyers on
both sides. Judge Bouso took the
matter under advisement, and on
Tuesday rendered a decision sustaining
tho demurrer and denying
tho writ of mandamus, holding that
thcro was no omco to bo filled by
tho Board of Supervisors, but that
the duties of Tax Collector devolve
upon tho County Treasurer, and
aro to bo performed by Mr. Dysart,
under tho law.

Tho defenso was based largely
upon self defense, supported by tha
good reputation of tho defendant
