TH" GRAND JURY AND THE STATE "
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had not been repealed by the act of s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
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
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
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
- 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
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.
