Grand Jury's RepSrt.
The grand jury for the'March term
of circuit court has concluded its busi
ness and made the following report:
To the Honorable Judge of the Cir
cuit Court of Linn Comity, Ore
We, the grand jury for the March
term of the circuit court of 1893, have,
as required by law, examined the
different county buildings and the
offices therein, including the iail and
outbuildings. We find each of the
county officers have their offices in
good condition and the books neat and
clean. We find the sanitary condi
tion of the county jail 1b poor, and
recommend that the wooden structure
be removed and the north corridor be
provided with a sink and portable
bath tub. There being no further
business before us we respectfully ask
to be dismissed.

Last Sunday constable Morgan and
R. Tivey went up in the neighbor
hood f Waterloo and vicinity where
John Loveall was murdered, to see
what evidence could be found iu re
gard to the murder case. After gath
ering all that could be found they
came to the conclusion that the evi
dence was sufficient for the arrest of
Wm. Vail. They arrested him aud
brought him to town on Monday
morning, and telegraphed for Deputy
Prosecuting, Atty. Wyatt who came
out on the evening train. After Atty.
Wyatt .examined all of the witnesses
and gathered all the evidence that was
t hand, he moved that the prisoner
Iw dismissed, statiug at the same
time that the evidence , was
sufficient for arrest, but didn't
think it wa enough to hold him. While
the Kxi'Bioss thinks every effort to
bring the guilty man who committed
this awful i rime to justice is com
mendable indeed, wethink oueshould
be doubly sure that tbey have the
right, man before any arrests should

Two years ago the legislature passed
a bill which practically prohibited the
people of tho main part of Southern
Oregon from fishing. At the late ses

this estate of affairs but it seems as if

succeed in defeating the plain Intent
of the law. Portland sportsmen have,
also, succeeded lu getting the game
laws so amended that no hunting for
grouse or wild fowl of any kind is le.
