The Cheapest and Best'Equipped Lnery in leuv. T". Pop. ? The Grand Jury Report. The report of the grand jury of the county is before us. It is quite Jong and differs from the usual jury report in that it carries a kernel of sense in every sentence. We will summarize its topics: The action of the justices' courts in forcing so many frivolous, non-criminal cases upon the attention of the jury is criticised. Many of these cases involved no civil questions, yet defendants were bound over to await trial and witnesses subpoenaed to give evidence. So many such cases have been certified up that the jury are forced to the belief that the jus tices before whom the examinations were held knew no law and had no judgment, or that they deliberately intended to impose expense upon the county. Among instances of such practice, especially,is one from Cooke, a so-called grand larceny case that had no element of crime in its nature; two others are from Livingston—one a charge of obtaining $5 under false pretense, and another of obtaining credit for a suit of clothes under false pretense—both being really fit only for hearing in a civil action, and pos sessing no criminal feature. A chargé of false iuu ,n sonment brought against a deputy-sheriff of Livingston in the discharge of his duty is also severely criticised. The jury says that in such cases instead of sending defendants to the grand jury they should be discharged and the costs taxed up against the complaining wit nesses. The poor farm and the jail were found in good condition and well-kept. The county accounts were found in good condition and the offi cers generally efficient in the dis charge of their duties. Reprehensi ble erasures were found in the asses sor's and treasurer's books and an improvement in the method of the keeping of the same is advisable. In view of the fact that neither the grand jury nor the county commission ers have the time, without large ex pense to the county, to make a thor ough examination of the county books, it is urgently recommended that the court appoint two expert accountants somewhat versed in the law to make the examination. "Without positive ly ascertaining for ourselves, we were informed that nearly two hundred names appear on the delinquent tax list for the past year, aggregating, doubtless, several thousand dollars, and that no special effort has been made to collect the same, owing prin cipally to the fact that the county as sessor failed to return a proper de scription of such property assessed, and that the county commissioners paid him his full percentage and re ceived his returns without insisting that he should furnish a correct and detailed description otsuch property." Referring to the projiosed addition to the court house the jury say: "Upon a somewhat hasty examination of the accommodations for the county clerk and recorder we are impressed with the fact 4 hat the vault is small and in sufficient for the safe keeping of all the books and papers of the office. But, in our opinion, the vault con nected with the county clerk and re corder's office could lie connected with that of the probate judge's office, and thus furnish sufficient vault room for all the books and papers belonging to such office for many years to come. Then at an expense of a few hundred dollars a vault could he built for the use of the probate judge on the north side of the present building." Iiuflalo, Wyoming:. A gentleman writing from Fort McKinney. Wyoming, to a St. Paul friend, says: This is already a rich agricultural and stock country. This comity (Johnson) assessed over two millions for taxes last year. At Buf falo, the county seat, adjoining our reservation, they are erecting a $30. 000 court house and a $12,000 school house. The character of the settlers is generally good. To me, the settle ment of this locality is marvelous. Tor in 1877 it was a wilderness, now it is difficult to find a find a location on any stream not pre-empted. DISTRICT COURT. IION. JOHN C. COBURN PRESIDING; THEO. MUFFLY, CLERK*, E. M. GARD NER, DEPUTY CLERK*, ANDREW F BURLEIGII, DISTRICT ATTORNEY. Special Correspondence. Bozeman, June 12, 1884.—In the case of Livingston vs. Houghton & Harper, a motion was made bv defend ant to strike out plaintiffs complaint* An amended complaint was filed in the case of Beck vs. Hoffman. The remainder of the day was occu pied in the trial of Walter C. McFai Iand for the murder of James Stanley on the night of the 11th of August last, at Livingston, Montana. The examination of Mrs. Stanley occupied from about 10 o'clock a. m. to 3:30 p. m. A great part of the time, how ever, was consumed by counsel in ar guing questions of law as to theadmis sability of certain evidence offered by the prosecution. The prosecution is conducted by A. F. Burleigh, district attorney, and the defense by Warren Toole and W. II. Frye of Livingston. The progress of this case will be re ported to the Enterprise from time to time. MONTANA NEWS. Butte's city jail is full of vags, bums and graybacks. Col. Sanders was given a reception on the evening of bis return to Hel ena. Butte Miner: Mr. W. A. Clark has just completed a wood fiume six miles in length at the head of Brown's gulch, lie has now 100 men cutting wood at the head of Sawmill gulch, a tributary of Brown's gulch. This wood will be floated down the flume and hauled to the Moulton and to the Colorado smelter. As the latter works consume about 100 cords of wood a day, a great saving in the cost of de livery of fuel will thus be effected. Butte Miner: As an evidence of the superior quality of west side bunch grass, and that stock will winter well at this altitude with no other food, we will state Mr. J. A. Harrington, of this city,turned out thirty-two head of hordes last November to rustle for themselves. They ranged from Brown's Gulch to the head of Deer Lodge valley, eight to twelvepniles from Butte. Last week Mr. Harring ton drove them home, every one being fat and sportive as colts. They re ceived no attention from anyone and freie not looked after by him until he drove them to his ranch in the park. Independent and Republican Papers that will oppose Rlaine. New York Post: The newspaper op position to Blaine becomes more jiorten tous every day We published a list < n Saturday of the Independent and Repub lican journals which were openly commit ted against him.but the additions to it since that tune greatly outnumber the originals. It stands now: New York Times, New York Herald, Harper's Weekly, Roch ester Post-Express, Rochester Herald, Syracuse Herald, Flushing Times, Boston Advertiser, Boston Transcript,Boston Her ald, Springfield Republican, Philadelphia Record, Philadelphia Times, Chicago Times, Chicago &ews, New* Haven News and the New York Evening Post. In addition to these the Chicago Inter-Ocean, the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, the Bufialo Express, The Buffalo Commercial-Adver tiser, the Philadelphia Telegraph, the Bos ton Journal, the Worsester Spy and many other Republican party journals, consent to support the ticket, but admit they have small hojKJ of seeing it elected. We do not believe that any canditate of any party ever entered a presidential canvass with such tremenduous odds as these against liim. In this city the Tribune is the only paper which supports Blaine squarely. The Commercial Advertiser has not de fined its course clearly, but it evidently has no intention of advocating Blaine, for it says that his nomination was a »'glorious victory" won by the "star route gang, the cowlwivs and the intriguing politicians," The Mail and the Express is doubtful, also saying that "this may Ijc a bad year for Republicans unless entirely united and well guided."
