The Indian doctor, becoming en raged at the affair, began to abuse one Dr. G. W. MeGraw, another street fakir, claiming that he was the insti gator of the outrage, and put the boys up to the egg-throwing contest, which he, MeGraw, will endeavor to disprove in the mayor’s court at 3 o’clock Sat urday afternoon. Upon the Mayor’s court convening at 3 o’clock, nothing was shown to prove that Dr. MeGraw had anything to do with the egg throwing, and act ing-Mayor Mayhan, after lecturing the boys who threw the eggs, dis misse the case against the doctor. GRAND JURY REPORT. To His Honor, F. D. Fulkerson, Judge of the Jackson County Circuit Court, July Term, 1902: We. the Grand Turv. bee to submit the fol lowing as a brief report of our actions as grand jury for the July term 1902. Being duly|empaneled, we perfected our or ganization by the selection of J. G. Walker as clerk, and entered upon our duties by inves tigating all cases that came before us. First, cases where accused were in jail; next, those that were under bond, and then such cases as came before us, exercising care and celerity to the best of our abilities, to investigate all charges for felonies and misdemeanors, by ex amining 78 summoned witnesses, (not one of whom was entitled to more than one day’s at tendance,) and a number of witnesses who aiv peared voluntarily before the jury. Some of them gave evidence that ;satisfied the jury that violations of the law were probable, others only succeeded in convincing the jury that they desired their help to vent petty spite, and the jury took such action as was in consonance with the instructions of the court, and their understanding of the law. Your jury found 14 indictments for felony, and 23 indictments fof misdemeanors ofj|various kinds, those for the illegal sale of whisky pre dominating. Tile jury, did not consider it good policy to pursue the illegal sale of whisky to such an extent so as to entail excessive cost on the county, nor to heap indictments to a degree that would create public sympathy for the offenders. Your jury is forced to admit that the accounts of various public officers have not been ex amined, for the reason that the commissioners of accounts had not completed their report. The jury having completed their labors, deem it best not to wait for the completion of this report. The jury have made inquiries as to the con dition of the public roads, and regret to say that many of the roads not classed as first class roads are not maintained in good condition because road overseers claim that no work should be done in their respective districts, except upon those of the first-class, and that they were not liable to indictment for the failure to keep all public roads at least passable. In view of the misunderstanding of the law, the jury have not felj justified to bring any indictments at the present term, but made mention only to ad monish overseers that the law does not absolve them from liability in case they fail to main tain all public roads at least passable. The grand jury in a body, visited the county jail aud found that the improvements made have added to the safety as well as to the maintaining of good sanitary conditions. The prisoners all ex pressed themselves as being well treated and well enough fed. A committee from the grand jury, appointed to investigate the county poor farm, reports that there were 6 inmates, 4 females and 2 males. All indicated that they were being taken care of as well as conditions would allow, and that Mr. Grant aud his family took especial care to make the inmates as comfortable as possible. The committee also reported that they found the house in very bad repair. The house in which Mr. Grant lives needs repairing very badly, the weatherboarding is all rotten, aud needs paint ing %’ery badly, aud the pauper house is in a very bad condition—new blocks are needed, the ceiling is falling down and the windows, doors ... i is . .. v—.1 : _ 'i'u. :_ would recommend that these repairs be attended to at once; while the appropriation has been made for these repairs, nothing has been ac complished under .it. The jury would also recommend that if the property is not insured that it be insured fora nominal sum at least. Your jury regret that they are constrained to complain of the action of the Hon. Prosecuting Attorney, who covertly, if not overtly, imputes misconduct in finding an indictment for mur der in the second degree against one of the prisoners in tile jail of the county, instead of m indictment for murder in the first degree. 1'he basis of our complaint is contained in a mo .ion to suspend proceedings in said indictment, Mid consists of the following language: “That the grand jury, or members thereof, while the said charge has been pending before them have been counselled as to the facts and law of said case, by the friends or counsel of ac cused and outside of the grand jury room. “That while said charge has been pending be fore said grand jury, said body procured the56th Ark. Reports and examined the case of Simpson vs. the State, erroneously making their own interpretation of the law applicable to the ev idence, instead of taking the law from the court, under the court’s direction, as provided by Sec tion 2057 of S. & H. Digest.’’ The jury jointly and severally deny that any action of theirs, or the friends or counsel of Johnson warrant the allegations made, and strongly protest against the implied imputations upon their characters as grand jurors of the county, and honestly court inquiry into their conduct as such jurors. The jury does not consider it within their province to furnish any argument to sustain :heir actions, but willingly leaves the matter to :he judgment of your Honor and the people of Fackson County. Tn conclusion the jury desires to express their thanks for the kind consideration and indul gence extended by the court, and the energetic, and efficient aid rendered by the officials, one and all.
