A GENERAL PRESENTMENT.
?HE GRAND JURY MAKSH A FIXAL H8-
VfolsUira of the Law a General Considera-
tion—Knllier Knrtvsitlc lTpon|*tbe Guard-
farm of ^tlie foace — The -Late
Hi Ike Considered.
Eov8mbeb Tkbm Criminal'District Coaivr,
in and job Galveston Cousty—Hon. Gus-
tavo Cook, Presiding—Dear Sir: Your grand
jury beg leave to submit thoir report, as fol-
lows: That we have examined and made dili-
gent inquiry into 135 charges aud trua pre-
tentment made of 00 violations of the law.
We have found only a few bills for gaming.
We were unable to obtain a roster of gaming-
house?, nor could we find a !i»t of the habitues
cf< these places. Although many men were
elf st-ly catechised that we had every reason to
brieve knew of gaming-houses and habitues,
but we found this vice a sealed book to this
grand jury, and we. deeply regret our failure
In not presenting more true bills of this vice.
|We bave made diligent inquiry in regard to
!he admittance of minors into all plstcas of
evil tendencies, and we find that they often
frequent billiard halls, bar-rooms and variety
resorts, tut we fail to make a clear case in re-
gard to their having been sold or given intoxi-
cating Hquors. Heretofore grand juries have
paid litllo attention to this, which we regard
ts a serious violation of the law.
We dt:lre, therefore, to call the attention ot
the legis!ature, through you, nnd a*k tha en-
actment of a law making an offense as high as
felcny for any dance-house, variety hall,
gambling bouse, bar or beer-room, or the pro-
prietor thereof, to even admit those to their
flaces under legal age, and that the proprie-
tors of such places be forbidden to employ, in
say case minors, and if they do so they do
cob mit a felony.
iWe have had under consideration violations
the Sunday law, and we find the city con-
bulary ore keeping front doors close!, and
wft find no proof justifying a true bill—with a
We bave given great attention to violations
of the revenue law and docketed some thirty
oases, and find from investigation that the law
is at all times and by many parties openly
violated. We gave great attention to those
parties who are Bailing liquor under beer
license. These aggregate about 118 cases. We
did this not alone to vindicate the law, but In
justice to those who pay their full license.
Two thirds of this jury are satlsfled with the
testimouy adduced, bur, ane-tt ird of the jury
we-10 not satisfied, aud therefore this jury pre-
sents no true bills. Tho cases and witnesses
are docketed, and the majority of thin jury
calls the best of attention to the next jury to
this growing violation of the law. In our In-
vestigation of these violations, we are glad to
be able to report that many persons whom wo
had reason to believe took an occasional drain
do not even know the taste or smell of any
other liquor than beer. We find tbi.s almost
wholly tbe fact with tha present efficient police
t'oreeof tho city, as well as the general con-
This, among other causes, has prevented us
from being as successful in ferreting out all
these violators ts we might otherwise have
been. We have, however, paved tho way for
succeeding bodies, and we advise those who
have paid their license to get information and
eee that the next grand jury get possession of
We bave presented few bills for violation of
the Sunday law The cause arises in the fact
that no witness examined knew of a bar-roatn
between bis residence and his church; there-
fore on this day of rest they were not abroad
only so far as to attend divine service. This,
we find, prevails alarmingly with the guard-
'ana of the ptace, showing good high morals
00 tbe, force.
Our attention has been had with tbreekinds of
houses of ill-repute, and classed as disorderly-
one know 11 as tbe regular house The jury failed
to find a bouse of this kind in tha city. T'ljese
houses evade the revenue law, as wo think,
though we failed to get proof enough to satisfy
a portion of the jury. Another ia known as
bed-houses, ana tome of them are kept by
males who ere unworthy tha name of men.
We paid them our respects, and give you tlie
proof in Eeveral true bills The other is known
f.s assignation. To these wo Uava devoted
great attention, and if petit jurors do their
duty tlii se iniquitous dens will ba of the past
— tnly en unpleasant recollection. We take
this occasion to add gratuitously that
these places do not get an existence
through the laboring uien nor the clerks, but
from men able to ride iu close carriages, driuk
champagne and pay inrge sums of money-
names of persona have been called to tha at-
tention of this jury that surprise and asnaza
up, Slid look and seem incredible, aud our
successors may yet lodge a bill in high places.
Recent events of the banefulaess of these
disreputable decs of iniquity have caused us
to make deeper research than we raight other-
wise liave made, and it is yet freah in tha
mini's of tho whole people when tha proprie-
tress of one of these piaces, through an emis-
sary, drew into her clen the child of one of our
people, robbing devoted parents of their first-
born, in her tender age, and stealing from her
her nelf re.-pect, and doing her and her parents
an injury that even death in itself would have
been more tolerable. We havo done this to
protect the hearthstone and tha family altar,
as well as in duty bound to vindicate tha law.
SVe are glad to say thesa dens are only found
in citiep, Galveston being the only place in tha
State large enough to maintain them, so far
as we are ndvbed.
The list of crime especially ca'lad to our at
ttntion in tbe charge of "your honor ware
gaming, vlo'alfoaa of the revenue law, Sunday
law and hotisic's of prostitution. All h%va had
close attention, «s far as we aro advised, with
equal justice to each and malice to none.
We bave discussed and investigated matters
l'slating to the recent action of a number of
psrsor.s who claim they are confederated for
the puipcse of maintaining tbediguityof li-
ber and are striking for higher wagas and to
redress real or fancied wrong?. There h33
been no charge preferred by any one against
them as a whole or a part; and having nr
facts to deal with we bave fastened no gaiit.
We summoned somo fifty witnesses, but tiioy
failed to put, in an appearance.
When tbe strilts tock place on the 80th diy
cf August, and since, it seems to us that if the
statute laws wire violated affidavits should
bave been crude by those who claimed an in-
jury by tha violation, before the recorder or
justice of the peace, and upon trial and com-
mitment would have reached this tribuual in
shape for tho vindication of the lav/.
It has been rumored on the stroeta—but wa
can not trace it to any responsible person or
persons—that this jury was in sympathy witn
the striker?, and would ignore the whole mut-
ter. However true this may be as to tho sym-
pathy, it la falsa n3 to our ignoring, in the
event that proof of guilt could ba found, for it
is as certain as that night and day follow each
other, that could this jury find a crime so cer-
tain we would have presented true bills. We
have icv.ted, time and again, interested pir
tits to mate charges, even threatening them
with this report as early as the5tn day of Nj■
vcmbu ; j et wesubptoBacd them and they hive
totally failed to answer our subpoeiii or die a
iing'e charge. We therefore make this rapart:
that if there be blame at all, it does not lia
with this boc'y, but with those directly at ia-
tcust, for they are certainly at fault in not
appijing to tbe law at tha proper time and ia
tbe manner so plainly laid down in the
statutes; and in treating the matter in tha
manner they have, they gave a dignity to a
combination of men they claimed ware violat-
11 g tbe law that they do not merit, if guilty.
W e can not close this report to your honor
without commenting to some extent upon this
subject. If tbe law has been violated, we are
cf the opinion that the punishment should not
fall on the true laborers among them, when all
are fully salisfied that they aro led (or misled)
into Heir error (if anj) by bad, designing,
scheming men—men incapable of giving any
tdvice tending toward tbe elevation of a trua
laborer. Many of these strikers are not citi-
zens of this Stats 01 the United States, aud ara
iglioiantof the law and are easily misled;
setne cf tlieni, however, are officers of the
State and county, holding commissions of
trust and profit, and from these men comes the
counsel governing the action of honest labor,
ond just recently, to the great loss to them-
selves ond all labor and industry of not only
this city but the entire State l'he law, if invok-
ed, is string enough to protect life, liberty and
commerce; especially is it true ia this case,
where the law ia administered by a learned,
jlifli and discreet judgt-, and an able and effi-
cient district attorney—and we can therefore
only regret our inability to present to your
honor stronger proof than thfs report—that we
were anxious to viLdicate the law in this iui-
We find the jail in good fix, the Inmates
(county prisoners) iu good health, well fed,
fairly Leaded and humanely treaterl. The city
prisoners- are not treated so well, but, doubt-
ing this being a matter for our consideration,
vie can only say, in tha Interest of humanity,
.•■eats should be provided and better bedding
There was complaint made of hazing or the
holding of a kangaroo court, and, ia one in-
stance, the Inmates of the jail severely flogged
a prisoner. Upon investigation we found no
guilt of any particular inmate, and learned
the sheriff punished, quite severely, tho whole
of them, and forbid further fun of the kiud.
Wo dismissed the matter. Otherwise we found
no complaint, but find tha jail kept by good,
leliable, competent jailors.
Misregena'tion,adultery, bigamy and kindred
violations of the law, have had due attention,
and result fairly satisfactory—speaking well
for the morals generally of the county.
We have examined into swindling,
tho obtaining of goods, wares and mer-
chandise une'er false statements, and it
our actions are sustained by the
petit juries, it will prevent any
great amount of this crime in the future.
Few charges, if any, have been presented
through malice. Since you convened us a sad
and an appalling calamity has befallen our
fair city, and a large number of the grand
jt:ry have had their property destroyed by fire.
When you convened us we were a competent
jury under the law; for two days we were not
householders and did no business until free-
hold had been obtained. With this exception
tbe attendance has been constant, and no one
asked to be excused or failed to vote on all
matters under consideration. Our labors havs
been daily from three to five hours.
The able district attorney has proved to be
learned and attentive; the urbane clerk all
that we dould desire; the sheriff and Deputy
r.inbel 'havo given ns faithful service; the
bailiffs efficient, to all of whom we feel an ob-
ligation and tender our thanks.
Hoping our labors and the result will meet
with favor by youi honor, and after thanking
you for courtesy and information, and having
disposed of all business that can be reached at
this term of your honorable court, we ask to

tional By a Hearing Under Writ of
Before Judge Cook, yesterday, in the Crimi-
nal Court, came to be heard tho case of R. K.
I.ee, under writ of habeas corpus. Mr. Lee
was recently arrested and fined ¥50 by Re-
corder Fontaine for violating the city ordi-
nance by beeping a saloon open in the city be-
tween the hours of 9 a. m. and 4 p. m. on
Surday. Mr. Lee took the case under writ of

vas decided yesterday by Judge Cook in his
favor, the judgment of the court being that
the relator be discharged on the ground that

ject, which requires that saloons shall close
during the entire day on Sundays.

The ft'ew Arca/.oiiian Colony.
Mrs. Olive Wright, of Denver, says there Is
to be a women s colony in Colorado, and talirs
in this way about it to a reporter of the I'ri •
buce Republican: " Ia the first place there aro
tt great many eastera women who havo capital
to invest, and who desire to put it into some
thing which will benefit women. Thay can't
do aujthiug like th^t !n Eastern towus, bs
pause popular prejudice is agaicai it. Getting
cut here will grant them roonj and liberty;
they csn do what they like, and I think th?y
will like to do considerable. I havo the
authority of sevwral Rifted and wealthy women
in Boston and New York on this question. X
know whereof I speak,"
"Where do you propose locating this
" in tbe beautiful, smiling valley of tha San
Luis. That is where 1 want to pitch a teat,
the work in which shall redound to tho honor
and jtlory cf women. Kich womm will build
up the colony, and pretty woaijtt will come
here aud establish industries by which to «Jp-
port thtmselves, They will likely engige in
bee culture, filk culture, the raising of snail
fruits, tho raising of domestic animals, tbe
manufacturing of" preserves and jellies, and
various other similar industries."
Somebody a;ued her the other day if mm
were to be excluded from the woman's
colony in tho Han Luis valley. Bho replied
that that was the qtiserest question evat- pui
to her ; said she didn't thmk barbed wire
fences would have any effect in keeping men
out of tlitt colony, and sho had no idea of
keeping a dozen sturdy Amazons on watch, as
the fair ladies di I in The Princess. It is
ucderstccd there will be plenty of man on
hand in tbe immediate vicinity of the sauny
i-ian Luis abou: the time the colony is st irt-i.
This rather knocks the poetry out of th9
fchfme, but its practical advantages may thus
bo enhanced, aieu won't have any glory down
there any nay; they will have to resign them-
selves to being overshadowed from tha begia-
Diig. They will ao nicely to fill in tha bicic-
pround, and uiay sometimes be intrusted
with the dut'ss of under-stewards. As for
figuring extensively, their sex is against them,
aud they will be kept down.
