court business in Alask has been
badly neglected. His assistant
Geo. K. French. is down at Rampart,
so there is no one here to attend to the
Grand Jury which is called for today.
Write Attorney General fully about it.
Dismissed case of U.S. v. McConnell &
Gilpin, and ordered bond returned to
Mrs. McConnell who put it up: Ordered
a special venire to fill up Grand Jury
- but as yet there is no boat up the river.
No prisoners, witnesses or litigants from
either Rampart or Circle: French is
yet there, and we can do nothing until
he and Reynoldson get back: Last
year the first boat up river reached
Eagle on Fourth of July: it may be later
this year owing to the season being later.
Its bad, and expensive, but the govt.
must stand it: Jury ought to have been
called for July 15th and not sooner!
