300 Being for Violation of the
Anti-Seining Law.
I’o the lion. J. M. Carter, Judge
of the Eighth Judicial Circuit:
We, the Grand Jury, empanel
ed for the July 1914 term of the
Nevada County Circuit Com ,
i)rg leave to submit the follow
ng report: —
We have examined 143 wit
nesses and have returned 355 in
lictmenis
We have rciurmd indictments
wherein rur judgment the evi
ilence would warrant us in doing
so.
We find many minor offenses
are brought before the Grand
Jury that should be disposed of
before Township officers, there
by saving thejeounty much un
necessary expense.
We find that several dealers in
smoking tobacco allow cigarette
papers to be t stored awayjin a
convenient place, in their places
of business and customers are
permitted to carry them away.
And we would suggest to such
dealers in smoking tobacco, thui
they promptly destroy all ciga
rette papers received in [ship
ments of tobacco and not permit
them to remain in their places of
business lor free distribution.
We would also suggest that ic
cal wholesale dealers destroy all
cigarette papers received^by
tiiem in shipments of tobacco.
Most witnesses before our body
have testified willingly for which
we commend them.
We find the public records ol
the county neatly and well kept.
We have not made an exten
sive investigation of the accounts
of the collecting officers of the
county, but have relied on the
report of the commiss oners of
a counts, which report we have
before us.
We find that all th i Justices of
the Pcacejexcept one have filed
report as required by law.
We find also that all Consta
bles, except one have reported.
We also find from the reports
of the Road Overseers, that the
public read:, of the county are in
reasonably good conili m .
We have appointed a commit
tee to investigate the Poor Farm
which they found in good condi
tion; the building and premises
being clean and in sanitary con
dition, and the inmates well cared
lor at the timejof the investiga
tion, but some complaint has
b en made to us that the premi
ses have rot been kept in as goi*d
condition as should have been at
all times.
We recommend '..at the prem
ise?. at all firm s be kept in a
sanitary condition aim not only
while the Grand .Jury is in ses
sion.
We find that the County Judge
is havingJsGine much needed re
pairs made on the county jail, by
having the wall around the west
room rebuilt, and a.-, soon as com
pleted. will be in good condition.
We also find that the jail is
kept in unreasonably sanitary con
dition and ^prisoners well cared
for.
We have complaints of drink
ing and^drunkem.cas at public
picnics and gatherings, but find
it difficult to get positive proof
of same.iand would recommend*
that the township officers use
their best efforts to punish such
offenders.
In conclusion we desire to
thank your Honor for courtesies
extended our body by you. We
desire also to thank the officers
of the court for their kind and
courteous treatment extended us.
Having completed our labors
wo now beg to befdischarged.
