[September Tues 4]
Grand jury trying cases as
would a petit jury, and utterly
refuse to indict Hubbard for the
murder of McNamee[?]: Called them
in and gave them very pointed
instructions as to their duty.
Will hold Hubbard over to next
grand jury if no indictment found.
There is an evident inclination on
part of the grand jury to refuse to
return indictments. Stringent measures
may have to be resorted to.
