TUB GKAMP JURY HtPORT.
The report of tho Federal Orantl
Jury l lgorous enough to suit the
most enthusiastic antagonist of the
Houso of llepresentatlves. HaWng
succeeded in securing the vouchers
Grand Jury has rclcwed the situation
and finds that the members of the
House In handling expenditures al
lowed excessive charges and careless
ness in accounting, arising from fall
uro to render detailed Items
The findings of the Federal bod are
of a nature that Justifies urging a fur
ther Investigation bj tho Territorial
authorities having the proper Jurisdic
tion. The question passed up to the
Territorial (Irani! Jur Is a uctermm
atlon whether the expenditures were
Illegal and the result of corruption or
extraordinary on account of thought
less carelessness Thus the whole
proposition of legislative expense
comes to the Attornc) General In a
lorm that makes action bv his depart'
ment mandatory and tho Investigation
passed on to tho Territorial (Irani!
Jury now In session This bod has a
long and Important task btlore It In
finding what services were rendered
for amounts which on the face of It
appear exorbitant Tho work Is not
complete by nnj means though tho
Federal lnitulsltors havo gone as far
as tho law allows them.
Tho Federal report Is of a nature to
create very positive opinion but until
tueh time as the courts havo flnlslud
and the record made final, tho spirit of
jiiMlco demands that no advance Judg
ment shnll be given.
SPENDING LOAN MOM1Y.
"The benefit Is derived by the coun
ty and can tho Terrltorj be expected to
pny for what Is illstinul) a countj
This quer advanced b Superlnteti
dent Hollow ay in his discussion of tho
expenditure of the loan funds, reprv
hents one of tho ver vital Issues which
Governor Carter has raised at the out
het of his administration Can Terrl
torlal loan funds bo expended on pub
lie works that pass to the control of
the counties on the first of Januar) ?
Territorial officials are taking a
proper course In being sure they aro
right before they go ahead They
have to take Into consideration the
direction given by the legislature,
which authorized tho loan and tho
method of expenditure. They must
guard tho financial Integrity of tho
Territory They, as executive officers,
are In duty bound to carry out the di
rections of tho people provided this
direction keeps within constitutional
The Bulletin believes thnt tho wholo
history of tho enactment of tho coun
ty law. tho loan act and tho loan ap
proprlatlon points to tho conclusion
that tho loan funds aro properly ex
Bended in forwnruing public work com
Ing under tho administration of
Territory and county Ono or
the much discussed points of
the County Act was whether
tho counties should ho given author
ity to Issue bonds, or tho entire ques
tion of public loans remain for the
Territory to determine. At that time
this paper favored tho county loan
authorization Tho Legislature, how
ever, decided to center the loan prlv
llcgo exclusively In tho -errltory, leav
ing It to the Territorial Legislature to
float the loans and appropriate for the
county as from tlmo to timo Beemed
best Kxporlenco with tho first loan
has demonstrated tho advantages of
this decision. No county of this Ter
ritory could hopo to pluco a loan on
such ravorablo terms as thoso Just so
cured for tho Territory and as may
reasonably ho expected In tho future
Tho benefits derived nccruo to taxpay.
irs who aro responsible for tho main
tenance of tho financial Integrity of
tho Territory and county, and whoso
property and earning capacity makct
up tho Territorial nssets It does not
seem reasonable that county public
work should bo barred from tho share
In tho loan funds directed by tho Leg
islature, ami the taxpacrs thereby
virtually pay a penalty for having es
tablished local county governments.
Tho Legislature can give, tho Legisla
ture can take away Tho eventual re
mit or no loan expenditures in tho
county will bo that tho legislature
will authorize) tho counties to mako
loans and tho taxpayers will pay a
much larger price for their puuao

Till: "MISSING VOlXlIKItS"
Upon the adjoin ument of the Terrl
toilal Leglsl.ituic for thu session of
1903, the Secretary of tho Territory
was unable to fully comply with the
provision of the Organic Act, which
makes It his duty to record and pre
serve all or the laws and proceedings
of the legislature and transmit within
thirty duvs copies of tho same to the
Sccrctar of the Interior of the United
States, owing to the fact that there
were never deposited In his office the
Vouchers of the House of Representa
tives, showing mi expenditure by that
bud) of a sum or over $50,000.00 during
the regular and special sessions. After
deliberation, this Urand Jury decided
to Investigate this matter and sub
poenas were therefore issued to every
of its own number who, while tempor
aril) invcstcMl with disbursing power,
stoops to slip his hand Into the com
inuiilt) till and to balance tho ac
counts, lumbers up tho cash book with

Code nmpl covers such nets After a

formed, that In certnln Instances, also,
vouchers were approved and warrants
drawn for services for which thero
were gross and flagrant overcharges,
nnd that prosecutions, therefor, under

Pass to Territory,
This Grand Jury Is nwnre Honor
able Sir, that It has no power to find
Indictments for violations of Territor

fully requests this Honorable Court to
