It was my fortune or mulortupe tone ca'led to the offioe of Chief Executive without any previous political training. From the age ot seventeen 1 had never even wit ne tied the excitement attending a presidential campaign, but. twice antecedent to my own candidacy, and but in one ot them was I eli­ gible as a voter. Under such ciroumstinces it is but reasonable to suppose that errors ot there not, dlemtvcsoi opinion executive, bound by an oath to a strict per­ formance ot his du'ies, and writers and de­ baters must have arisen. But it is aot neces­ sarily an evidence of bluuders on the part of the executive because there are these differ­ ences ot views. Mistakes have been made...

Many ol the States have abolished the Grand Jury system, believing it to be au inquisitoinal orgauizalian, more likely to damage individuals than to benefit com­ munities. The history of this country •bows that We arc inclined rather to make changes than to institute reforms, and that substantial improvements come to us only after we ^huve experienced the foil urea which arc inevitable from the em* ployment of extreme measures. We can. not properly dhpense altogether with tl«e Grand Jury, neither can we reasonably employ it as wc do at present. In some cases through, the sccresv which its cx parte proceedings render possible, it is an i-ngittc of terrible cruclty and wrong, in flicting not only hardship but deep dis­ grace upon persona who are as innoccnt »s truth itself while in other cases, the arrest of offenders and the punishment ot crime re...
