To the Honorable Circuit Court for Bt.

Constitution and laws of our State; and

in which we hold Judge Merrick as an
able jurist, an upright Judge and a dis
tinguished citizen ol our Htate.
Resolved, Further, That we very
mndi regret the severance of the official
relations which have so longexlsted be
tween Judge Merrick and tho people of
our county And in his retirement to
private life, he will carry with him our
admiration (or his ability hh a Judge,
and our respect and esteem (or his faith
ful discharge of his official duties. And,
we trust that he may derive much com
fort and happiness in hit declining years
from a realization ol a well-spent life
and a faithful discharge of his duties.
Resolved Further, That tho news
papers of this Judicial Circuit lie re
quested to publish these resolutions.
J. Marshall Dent, Foreman.
Judge Msrrlok responded briefly
and feelingly, and every one of the
large audience was touched by tip*
pathos of bis remarks.
At 10:30, a. M . the Grand Jury
U?J a4e-4e. nts- wj,4- tm 1 t^air
report and were discharged, subject
to call. The report Is us follows;
To the Honorable Judges of tho
We the Grand Jurors for St.
Mary's County, State of Maryland,
for the March Term of the Circuit
Court, 1909, respectfully report,
that we have examined and inquir
ed Into all violations of the law that
have come to our knowledge, and
have found presentments in ail cases,
where we believed the the evidence
justified it. The increase in the
jurisdiction of magistrates, has re
lieved us of the investigation of
many cases of minor Importance, at a
great saving of expense to the Coun
Only one case of violation of the
Liquor laws has been brought to
our attention, and we did not feel
justified in finding a presentment in
that case. While we have no doubt
that there are frequent violations they
are not near so general as they were
S few years ago. While there are
many bad places in our Public
Roads, we believe they are not so
bad as they usually are at this sea
son. We tjopn the County Commis
sioners will see that the bad places
are repaired as soon as possible,
and that the bridges bo looked after
sod kept in good and safe condition,
and that foot walks over the runs
and streams, be kept In order, for
the conveniences and safety of those
who have to walk, and especially
lor children going to school.
We have investigated a case of
malicious poisoning of bogs, of high
ly bred and registered stock. And
also the poisoning of a valuable dog,
belonging to the owner of the bogs.
But we were unable to getany evid
ence pointing to the authors of this
dssthrdly crime. We believe that
such cases should be reported to
the County Commissioner, who
should offer a reward for (hediscov
ery of the guilty parties, or engage
detectives to ferret them out, that
they may be properly punished.
We have examined tho list of licen
ses, and find nothing to report in
We have visited the jail, and found
it in an unusually neat ami cleanly
The recent repairs to the Court
House, appear to be substantial and
thorough, and reflect credit upon
the contractor for the work.
We think it would odd greatly to.
the oomfott and convenience of the
Grand Jurors, if some hooks could
be placed in their room, whore they
oould hang their overcoatsand hat,
instead of having to pile them o i
the table, which they need for other
purposes. We thank the Court;
the States Attorney, and the other
Court officers, for courteous and
valuable assistance rendered us in
the discharge of our duties, aud
respectfully ask to be discharged.
