JUDGE MOORE'S j CHARGE TO THE GRAND JURY Following is the charge of Judge W alter E. Moore, of Sylva, to the grand jury at the August term of Cherokee Superior Court which is now in session. This is Judge Moore's first time to hold court at Murphy since his '-lection two years i ag??. His charge to the grand jury is interesting and is carried for the perusal of our readers in accordance with the policy of this paper to car ry the charge of the grand jury of all judges holding court here. Head it and think upon its message: Mr. Foreman, and gentlemen of | the Grand Jury. I want to congratu late you and your County on the' building of this most magnificient court house; it is a credit to your County and a credit to the State, and. another thing that impresses me is, that this couit house has been built! of native material, native to your County, and it shows what natural resources the County of Cherokee has; to erect this magnificient build ing out of your own material shows 'that you have resources here that are capable of making you a rich [county if they an* only cultivated | and used and manufactured, and it is a great pleasure to me to be here 'with you in this beautiful building, and 1 want to give warning now ? l! Isee a notice has been posted by the Commissioners that any one. spitting on the floor will be fined $5.(10 ? that I will enforce this fully; there is no use of any one spitting on the floor of this magnificient building or marking the walls, and it would be a great crime t?> mar the beauty of this building in any way, by spit ting on the floor or marking the walls, or dropping fruit or peeling peaches, apples or anything of that kind being dropped on the floor that would stain the floor, or in any way mar the beauty of this building and if any one does these things, if you will report it to me, he will pay for it. pay for the time it takes to clean it and rep.iu it, he will -uffci for it by cleaning it up himself or pavins seme one cl^e ?o do so. Now, gentlemen the grand jury. [ it is not necessary for me to, and I do n<-t intend to no over the entire criminal law with you, because it ?<i familiar to you. a'id you do not have to depend on i !i? * diarfiw of the court alone to kno*-. what tlie law is c?i:d what \oiir di:l\ is. when you have newspa | mt? a?v.l everybody reads th?? newspapt- j and are lami ii!.?r with the law n?'W. There was i time when there w-ro not so many papers read when me people would came to court to hear the charge to the grand jury, and that was where they learned most of the law and find out about the la vs of the coun try, hut that isn't so now. there are plenty of newspapers in the co -n!\ and plenty of crime goin? on, and they learn enough through them to know what their dut\ is without de pending on the charge alone, except now and then when the Legislature makes and passes some extra laws, new laws, making <ertain things crimes that are not known to the people, so I will go over some of them : When the Solicitor sends a hillj to you, it is not your province to pass on whether it is a violation of the law or not, that isn't your pro vince at all; it is your duty to ex amine the facts, and if the evidence shows probable cause that a man ought to be prosecuted .it would be I your duty then to return a true bill whether you think it is a violation of the law or not; that is a question (Continued on pare 3) Tom Horny lost to Gene Tunney ? and made no alibi. That's what we call breaking all traditions.
