TheA Commtion has been made in this e to qah

ay, however, all be summed up .- the general
pr.pceitied-that the grand jury that for murder, the

the st egistry made Counrt, fder the laws of the State
The dictmnelwhoadndvoc bted the motion, sad the
attorney genral who ofcially oppose. it, have
both Theresed their desire that all classes of cit
zensy, hht be rupresented on the jury. I have
rqostiy hat the grudssion to upre the same
wish. Bet ts is net a question of predeltioo,

203, Dec. 6th. 5117) Is as follows:
" To determine who shall and who shall not be

natil the law In existence regulating this. subject

At the tat arnsual eleAtion of directors fo the

pri senting, respectIvely, the State of Lu-ians
ard the city of New Orleans, made up a ticket Ia
oppositios to the ticket of the lstockholders, and
ceanded that. in addition to the directors which
the governor and iasyor are empowered by law to
alpiot, ttey ahou d also vote, ex.offcio. as stock
holdera. Had they been per-mtted to vo:e. In that
capacity, theit ticket would have been succesftt,
but the cotrui-sioneLs of election w.Ould not ailuw

neJsonera, the State and city iutererts In the c ir
poraftin were fully represented, in y aestemr;ale

governor and mayor.
(Gov. Wells, seeking to put in his and Mayor

P. Horn or and si'teen others, had a suit Instituted
in the smne .f the state of Louisiana. in the form

have been elected held their oMeies, and by what
authority General besaregard, elected president
Ly the board, held bhis ome.
TI-e pleadings recited the facts above stated,
and the crief grounds of thbe defense were that
the governor and mayor had no right to vote at
the tlections of the corporation, and that the
,paities for whom they voted for directors were
religrble, became the eharter provides that no
one shall he a director who is not a stockhbolder.
Judge Duplatler ia hie decision confuse htmself
to the latter question. ,t was proved that no one
of the parties voted for by the governor and mayor
owseday stok in the company, and for that
reesee the Jadge bold that the governor and
mayor having seehnt to vote for prosoe not
