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 , gon: 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.

There being no further business before us we respectfully ask to be dismissed. William Fortmilleb, G. W. Geisendobfkr, W. T. i'OCHRAN, i. M. AltCHIHALU, L. A. Churchill, W'm. Ihklanb, J. M. Hasslkr. 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 be made. .
