Charge to the Grand Jury.
Want of room prevents our pub
lishing Judge Lewis' charge to the
Grand Jury entire, and we are
obliged to content ouraelve* with
the following extracts, which em
brace the main points :
GsNTiJtMBX : It is provided by ar
ticle fifth ol the amendment, to the
constitution of the United Stair,
that " No person Rball be held to an
•'swer for a capital or otherwise in
famous crime unless on a preaent
•* ment or indictment of a -Grand
"Jury, except in case, arising in
" the land and naval forces or in the
" militia in time of war." * •
Indictment cannot be found without
the concurrence of at least twelve
Grand Juror«. *
duty to perform and when you have
presented your indictments to ttii«
court the court and trial jury will
endeavor to mete out justice to the
accused, and if we fail to do so the
fault is not with you. *
arc an independent body ; no grand
juror shall be questioned for any
thing he may say or any vote he may
give relative to any matter legally
before the grand jury. Act inde
pendently and fearlessly in all mat
ters before you ; inquire as to the
offense, and whether the criminal be
rich or poor, white or black, learned
or ignorant, let not any of these
facts influence you. for the law is no
ref pector of persons ; if a crime has
been committed let the offender be
punished. Every member of the
grand jury should keep secret your
proceedings, see sec. 213. This is
too often disregarded, and it is of
too common occurrence that persons
on the street are informed of the
proceedings of n grand jury before
the court is advised of the same ;
let this evil be corrected now. * *
You arc not bound to hear evidence
tor the defendant, but it is yourduty
to weigh all the evidence submitted
to you, and when you have reason
to believe that other evidence with
in your resell will explain away the
charge you should order such evi
dence to be produced. I admonish
you, however, to be careful in this
regard and do not constitute your
selves a trial jury. * * Owing
to circumstances which transpired
here at the last term of this court. I
deem it my duty to cal! your atten
tion to sec. 109 of the act concerning
crimes and punishments.
And if you have reason to believe
that any persons having the knowl
edge of the actual commission of an
offense have for any reward with
held their evidence thereof, by con
cealing themselves to avoid being
subpoenaed, or otherwise, you will
make diligent inquiry into the same
in order that such offenders may oe
properly punished. . Such persons
are dangerous to society, for he wbo
will conceal a crime tor money wilt
commit perjury for money, and thus
the liveB and property of our people
are not safe while such persons are
at large among ns. * *_ One
person is charged with the crime or
murder, and as that offense is be
coming very common,courts and ju
ries should endeavor by the prompt
of the offenders to
one that if he vio
* You have a
late, the law he will be certainly
punished, and by so doing crime
will decrease. Men are less apt to
commit a crime in a community in
which they bave reason to believe
that they will be promptly indicted
and severely punished therelor than
in one wherein they have mason to
believe they will escape punishment
bv reason ol the failure of the grand
jury to indict or the trial jury to
convict them. And »? to these mat
ters persons are likely to judge of
the future by tb" past. 1

ror. and citizens.
The otlicr decision alhided to is to
'the effect that there was no District
Attorney in either the Second or
Third Districts, for the reason that
Judge Heed, who was elected last
fall for the Third District, then com
posed of Ada, Owyhee and Oaeida,
now resides in the Second under the
districting of the last Legiala
tun-, which throws Ada, Iloise aod
Alturas into the Second, and Owjheo
and Oneida into the Third,
being elected for the Third cannot
exercise the office because he resides
in the Second, and cannot exercise
it in the Second because he wa.
elected for the Third and not the
Second. It is a queer fort of arrangi -
ment but appears to argue out all
straight enough wbeu it is followed
to its sequence. We trust thej may
find law to compel Judge Lewis aud
Judge Heed both to move to and re
*ide in their own Ilistrict—wbat
right bave they to live out of their
own jurisdiction ?
