NEW ORLEANS, AUGUST 12, 1878. ... . .... '- -_' _ TH" GRAND JURY AND THE STATE " PRINTER. Recently the Grand Jury of this parish made a report gravely refollecting upon the State Printer. The report alleged that, the testimony before the Grand Jury tended to show that a large amount of printing had Sbeen done under a dead statute; that conceding that the said staLtuteh had not been repealed by the act of s 1877, the State Printer had charged it for the work on an incorrect, fraudulent, and I eacessive measurement. Having made these grave and injurious insinuations against the State Printer, the Grand J ury recommended that the Executive and law officers of the , StI te institute an inquiry into the nmatter and take such steps as they might deem proper ,r in the premises. t It must be evident to every intelligent ec person that the Grand Jury either went too a far or not far enough in this business. If that body had any evidence befolore it sufli clent to raise a suspicion that the State n Printer had made out fraudlout accounts dl against, and collected money not due himn from the State, it ought to have gone to the d Sbttom of the whole matter; it ought to have t taken ample testimony and pursued the in- t vestigation until it was satisiled that the i charges were false or until the evidence was o clear enough to justify an Indictment against the recreant official for swindling and -:- for perjury. But the Grand Jury did not do do this. It received and listened to charges of tile d gravest character against a public ofllicial, and dl directly involving a newspaper which possess- n es the confidence of the public; it heard cvi- r dence against the accused, which it seems was not satisfactory, not sufflicient to t! justify an indictment. And yet the Grandl Jury has given publicity to the charges and h strengthened them in the public mind by the i .insinuation that in the opinion of its mem- - bers they are true. We should be pleased to a have the very estimable gentlemen who corn- d pose the Grand Jury cite the law under which Sthey have a right to give currency and weight to charges made before them, but not sufli e ently sustained to warrant an indicttment. 14 The duty of the Grand Jury is to sift a chargei against citizens to the bottom; to 1 discover whore malevolence seeks to assail personal character; to protect innocent par ties from malicious proscution. and to pIoint out for arrest and prosecution those who it c has been shown have violated the law. But nowhere do we find any statute, law or pre tedcnt which makes it tite duty of that hodyl to officially circulate the slanders one man o may choose on specious groundls to nlake against another. Had the (; rand. .lury oita illied sufficient evidence against the State Printer to warrant an indictment for swindling, and then found such an indictmoent, it wou i have iL done its whole duty faith full; no on4e could have complained; the party indicted would have had his right under our constitution andl laws to ia fair and speedy trial in the courts by which he could have been released or con victed. The best anull most honoalt(le mIne havce been subjected to trial for criminal andr in famous olffenses, but they have always been able to obtain ful!l justice and an honorable acquittal. Any innocent matn can protect himself against an indictment of a grand ,jury, but how is au innocent man to protect himself against an informal slander circulated by such a body? Indict him and he goes before 1 a court of justice and is promptly convicted or acquitted. Return a special report, spe ciously drawn. insinuating thlit he has per petrated a fraud, or that lie has committed perjury, and recommend that the Governor 1 or somebody else, through some tribunal or instrumentality unknown to our laws, iunves tigate the matter, and you asperse his char acter, brand him as a swindler, and leave him without any method, or means, or oppor tunity to authoritatively disprove the charges and vindicate his character. The justice of these observations is made evident by the fact that so soon as the spellal report of the Grand Jury intimating that the State Printer had swindled the State, that official made a prompt and earnest appeal to the Governor to take such steps as he might be able to devise to investigate the charges to which the Grand Jury had given oftficial circu lation. Neither the Governor nor any one else knows of any tribunal authorized to in vestigate such charges save that on0e--the Grand Jury---which has abdicated its mduties and circulated a slander instead of squelclhing i. t or finding an indictment. lIesides this thim law oflicers of the State are albsent and will ,-lot return for probably sixty days. This is the predicnlrient in which the Grand Jury has placed ai citizen of the State. a public oflicial and a leading newspaper with which he is colnnectedl. The slanderous re port is being circulated b" the ,eniies of tihe I)DEMIOCRAT and iubilished in other journals by them as an advertisemenut, on the eve of a political canvass when this paper andni its Conductors need all their character and in fluence unimpaired to serve their people. Fortunately, however, for the DEaMOCI AT and the State Printer, the Governor has displayed cordial disposition to do all in his power to i: advance an investigation; he will promptly ,appoint a commission to investigate the w.lohole matter, and at the request of the State to represent the State in the absence of the Attorney General and Assistant Attorney I General. It was our purpose now to present to our 1 readers a general view of the law under which the State Printer, and the oficers who ordered the disputed work acted, but this 1 article has reached such a length that we are forced to defer that for another day. It only remains now for us to say to the public that if the State Printer had failed to perform the disputed work he would have been guilty of a gross violation of his duty under the law, and that he is so entirely satisfied of the perfect propriety of his ac tion, that, if the commission which Gov. Nicholls proposes to appoint to investigate the chalrges against him, does not fully and unequivocally justify him. he will resign his position and throw up his contract with the State. As fully satisfied as he is of the perfect legality of his position, his associates -the other proprietors of the DEMOeRA'r--if he is not vindicated by that commission, are ready to concede that the newspaper they have assumed to publish in the interest of the people of Louisiana is a fraud unworthy of the confidence of the public. Offering these pledges to our fellow-citi zcus, having no legal tribunal to which we can appeal, and forced to await the action of the Governor in devising and organizing an extraordllnary and unknown commission to try our associate, we feel that we have a right to ask the public to make no pronounce ment upon the report of the Grand Jury, which the Lottery Company is circulating and advocating for our injury until the commis slon is organized and all the law and facts are made public. - II I II· AHA ! AHA ! Everything in this world is comparative. tI Nothing is positive, not even that which is specially established by divine ordination. 1 For example, the holy writ sets aside the seventh day as a day of rest. Not only does it do this, but, poor, frail, weak, powerless i humanity is hold to a fearful accountability, and made to answer under heavy pains and penalties for all failures to fulfill the require- g ments of this law. This is one of the ten o commands on which rest all the law and the prophets, to which all order and morality are p reduced and to which the Christian dispensa- k tion has added but a single injunction. The Sconmnanment is positive and unconditional all men must resei on the Sabbath day or else incur the pcnas of the law-breaker. > How the Sabbatl ay shall be observed is a mooted question, which each different sect determines for itself. The rigor of the old law was considerably relaxed under the new dispensation, and several specific exceptions s. to it were justified on the highest au- F thority--such. for example, as the case of the ass in the pit. Some of the n over-pious insist that the (lay should be , L spent in prayer and psalm-singing and the - taking up of collections, while others not less sincerely contend that recreation is rest. Rest, however, and the suspension of our daily avocations are the universally accepted Sduties of the day clearly imposed by the com mandment. The law, says the old maxim, makes no vain commands, 'and whatever it commands a man to do he should do, and 1 there can be nothing wrong or immoral in any action that it may become necessary for him to take in order to obey the law. The law is mandatory, and commands a man to rest, and if he fails to rest lie violates the law and incurs the penalty. Another man may disturb our rest without violating the law or submitting himself to the penalty. That which disturbs us may be his rest or recreation. Ilis might be the sweet sleep of a iabe, yet his snore might ruin u1s wild. To ' play his accord(leon might he his diversion, his recreation, his rest, and he might not be d able to fulfill the law without resort to it. Ho A commits no sin, therefore, in playing his ac- tl L .orde('( ; but it is quite difforentl with us if we s Sfail to rest because of its ceaseless noise. If te we allow ourselves to be disturbed, if we fail a to rest, we are guilty of ' great sin and place 0 our immortal souls in jeopardy. L(ex ni fr.r1r lacit fl -the law does noth 1 ing in vain. If it commands us to do a thing, whatever may be necessarily incidental to a full comlpliance with the law is lawful and jusltliirble. Now we reach our Sdedluction and we defy any man to contradict I it. It is this: it is not only right., proper and f lawful, but it is his solemn duty, for any man J mnlideavorling to lead a consistent, religious t life, whether under the Mosaic or the Chris- t tian dispensation, to kill every accordeon amateur that may disturb the lpeace and quiet of his neighborhood on the Sabbath day. There would be no justification for a law for bidding the accordeon amateur playing on t Sunday. In so doing ihe comnnits no sin. The d sinfulness is all on the part of those who I t dlo not rest because of his performances. If f li he continues to play, then the entire responsi- F , bility rests upon his victims, and it is plainly f I their duty to put an end to him. This is at beautiful illustration of the marvelous unique ness and symmetrical adjustment of the law. It is not right to forbid the accordeon amateur . playing on Sunday, for if there were such at r law lie might be rescued from his legitimate fate. It is better to lay no prohibition upon him- it is better that he should be encour o aged to play on Sundays, so that he may be r killed. Mind, he is to be killed only on Sun s days, but if we do not kill him on that day we jeopardize our souls. We are great le sinners if we fatil to rest on his account, but no responsibility attaches to him. lie goes as straight to glory as if he had mur it dered his wife and been "gobbled" from the scaffold. Ah, there is no escape for him-- Selah! o liThere is one next door to us. He is our meat. An awful sense of the responsibility resting upon ius has suddenly seized us. As the darkies say--we are "gettin' 'ligion" and getting it strong. . . . . .. . . . . . . The people along the .Mississippi are in earnest about the improvement of that great waterway; and there has been a meeting at Memphis to consider plans for getting rid of the surplus water of the river and recovering great tracts of lowlands. Capt. Cowdon ap peared before the meeting anl submitted his scheme for making artilicial outlets to relieve the long channels which have been gradually built out into the Gulf by the action of the river itself. Such a method of dealing with the Mississippi would be effective in getting rid of its Ilood-water, but it would counteract the project of Eads for concentrating the cur rent and making it clear a good channel. The proposed convention to consider the Missis sippi problem should be held, and the best en gineers, scientists and merchants of the country should attend it. So says the New York World. We exactly agree with the World. The proposed conven tion will meet in New Orleans next Decem ber, and the whole question will then be pre sented, even to its minutest details, so that all '1nay undorstand it. Ai we ask is a full rep resentation of all the interests and sections of the country, that none may avoid the convic tion that levees are as necessary to transport grain as to protect cotton and cane. Conkling is plainly working himself up to an issue. Day by day the Utica Herald, his organ, is growing more savage on Hayes. Its last utterance is just a touch more sarcastic than the immediately preceding observation. In its last Monday's edition the Herald cul minates some sixteen vigorous and separate observations with the following: Hayes lacks the force of character, if he does not lack the impulse, to do right. From the beginning he has played the part of the coward alnd traitor. His conduct has natural ly driven froni him good men and drawn to him the evil, who designedly use him as a tool. I-e is weak and vain enough to receive their ilattery, and brave and wicked enough to carry out their wishes as far as he dnare. His bravest act has been that of a coward,. and( his designing adherents are not shallow enough to give him credit for any higher quality. They goaded himin to the suspension of Arthur and Cornell, against whom nothing could be said save that they do not sympa thize with Hayes' personal aspirations. It is evident that there is a denouement ahead of us. DIED.
