FIRM DEALING
WITH MINOR
CRIMES URGED
Judge Daniels Tell Grand
Jury That Is Remedy
For Greater Ones
JURORS RESPONSIBLE
Says Oath of Grand Juror Means
Much in Upholding Peace and
Happiness of People
| In his charge before the grand
; jury of tho September term of Martin
' County Superior court convened here
| yesterday morning, Judge Frank A.
Daniels, of Goldsboro, urged the body
}of 18 men to deal with the minor
I crimes with the firm determination to
; effect a cure for the greater ones.
Judge Daniels briefly touched the
me jo r crimes, the enforcement of
which all people stand as one unit.
And since thd people favor the en
forcement of the law against all these
crimes there is no trouble to obtain
indictments on such chaTges. When
it comes to the enforcement of the
lesser crimes, so common in this day,
it is quite another matter. Mr.-Dan
iels describeil liquor, gambling and
immoral Rabits fs some of the under
lying sins that are despoiling the so
ciety of today, that the youflg man
who follows these three vices stands
in a dangerous "Msition. The practice
I or either one ui them tends to Ica»
to some of the greater crimes, tto
jurist declared. In fact, he sail I, then
[ are very few original crimes, that
most of them are the outfjiowth anil
offspring of either liquor * manufae
j tuing, selling, drinking, gambling or
immoral practice.
The oath of a grand juror means
I much in upholding the peace and hap
i piness of the people and the duty of
' a grand juror well performed means
that most law-breakers are brought
\ into court for trail, the Judge said.'
In the charge, it was pointed out
' that if the juror faila in this duty,
] ii.cn will make and sell liquor which
j will not only ruin others but will
| eventually destroy all. will lend
} the gambler downward step by ste.r
! until he robs and steals; it will brinfc'
the immornlist down in disease and
disgrace.
Those who thus break the laws (ft
our country do not build the schools
they down; they do not
support the church, but frequently
curse it. In short, the". Judge, said,
"He who stands against the '.aw to
disobey it, stands against the govern
ment and all the rfvilized societies."
