To the Honorable Bruce W. Bryant
Judge of said Court:
We, your grand jury, duly em-

that we have been in session five days
and have made diligent inquiry into
violations of the law; that we have
examined about 100 witnesses ami
have found 21 indictments for feloni-
es and 9 indictments for misdemean
We find that the laws regulations
butchers, meat markets and those
persons who slaughter animals for
butchers are being violated but we
are of opinion that these violations
are not wilfully and intentional. These
laws were passed for the purpose of
preventing theft of cattle and making
it easy for the officers to apprehend
and convict persons guilty of the
theft of cattle. We have advised most
of the persons in Stonewall County
who are engaged in the business of
buying and lHr.f meat and slaugh-
tering cattle oft!io provisions of said
laws. We suggest that the next grand
jury investigate violations of this
