The grand jury was ready and willing at all times to hear all proper evidence of violations of these laws, as well as the violations of all other laws now in force, but the persons who are responsible for the circulation of said rumors evidently lacked the courage to tell what they knew ' about these violations.' if any thing.

No names of persons who had probably violated these laws were presented and no facts from which such crime might be found to have been committed were produced.
