THE EAÜLE: WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 4. 1BÍ5.
5 Grand Jury Report, To the Hon. Gideon D. Bantz, Asso ciate Justice of the Supreme Court of the Territory of New Mexico, and Pre siding Judge of Third Judicial District Court thereof. Sin : In conformity with the instruc tions of this court, the giand jury for the present term respectfully submit their final report, as follows: We have taken action in the case of every prisoner confined in the county jail and have found indictments in all cases where in our judgment, the evi dence warranted the same; where the facts submitted did not warrant such action, we have refused to indict. There were various complaints made to us which we carefully considered, under the instructions of the court. A majority of the cases were of a trivial nature and these were promptly dis posed of. Others of merit have been re turned to this court in the form ot in dictments. The committee appointed by this body to examino into the affairs of the two hospitals in Silver City report both to be excellently managed and in good con (1 i tii ni and all charity patients receiving the bestof care and attention, ihere is an insane woman receiving treatment at the bister s hospital who lias been in that institution over two years. It is an imposition on these good Sisters that they should be compelled to devote the time and trouble to this , patient, when . she properly belongs in the asylum at Las Vegas, where special attention can lie given such cases. The patient is as helpless as a child and really requires closer treatment. There is also an in sane man in the county jail. AVe would respectfully suggest that both these un fortunates lie sent to the Las Vegas asy lum and thcirexpeiiM's paid by the coun ty, which arrangement would be much less expensive than at present and much more humane. The committee appointed to examine the jail found the same to lie neat anil clean and proper regard for sanitary ar rangements. There was no coinplaiiit from any of the prisoners. The committee appointed to examine the ollices of the sheriff, treasurer, clerk, collector, and asi-eor have per formed their respective duties and then- reports ore attached hereto. The grand jury would recommend that stringent measures be adopted by the proper olHcers to compel the collection of the balance remaining unpaid on the Berg &. AYhitehill judgments, obtain-'d at previous terms of this court. AVe are Informed that only a portion of these judgments have been paid by the Berg bondsmen and that nothing has been re ceived on the AVhitehill matter. The money is needed badly for the main-t-aliiance-of the.conntiyand we deem it only just that all and not a few should be brought under the enforcement of the executions issued in these causes. Having completed all the work before t, the Grand Jury respectfully asks to be discharged without delay. John Cokbett, Foreman. John Corbett, Foreman Grant County Grand Jurv. Sin: AVe your conimitiee duly ap pointed to visit and investigate the affairs of the odice of assessor and tax collector, beg leave to submit the follow- ng report: We visited and inquired into the affairs of the office of assessor and find that the tax rolls have been completed and turned over to the board of county commissioners. We further find that the assessor has made township plats of all the lands in the county, thereby causimr all lands to be assessed, this item in itself has caused quite an addi tion to the tax rolls. The assessment has been made up by townships thereby aiding the collector in locating the prop erty assessed. AVe have visited and examined into the affairs of the office of the tax col lector. AVe find that the books of the otlice are kept in a systematic manner, a record being kept of each and every tax paid, and receipts were exhibited for all taxes collected up to Nov. 1st 1895. The collector exhibited proper re eipts from the county treasurer for all amounts paid to him. Clark Uoixikks. Mautix Mullen. JrLins Rosen. Committee. (Continued on puRO 10.)
