The report, it is believed differs in tike nationality of the victims to that of Dis- trict Attorney Grant, now in the hands of the attorney general. The grand jury found that eight of them were nat- unuizefl citizens, and that one of them had declared his intention to become naturalized, while the district attorney, it is believed, found that one of the vic- tims was an Italian, but an escaped con- vict, and that another's nationality was so doubtful as to make it unsafe to hazard au opinion. So at its worst the Itah'au complaint will be narrowed down to two persons, and one of them an New Orleans Papers Applaud. NEW OKLEASS, May All of the daily newspapers comment freely on the report of the grand jury, which they in- dorse without exception. The States says: "The report of the grand jury brings to light a number of startling facts concerning the assassination of tht> late chief of police of thisc ity, the mis- carriage of justice and the subsequent lynching of the prisoners in the Parish prison. Naturally the grand jury could indict no one or no number of those con- cerned in this business. The 'people' did it.and no grand jury could devise a way to indict the 'people.' The Times-Democrat says: "The grand jury has made the proper return on the lynching a return that will meet with the approval of the entire people, not of "New Orleans alone, but of the country." The Pickaytme says: "We accept the declaration of the inability of the grand jury to get information as to the partici- pants in the stdrming of the Parish prison. The grand jury could not find the guilty parties. That is plain enough. Any insinuation that the 'entire people' of "the city and parish are responsible ought not to proceed from the grand jury, which is acting tinder oath.1' Pears "Serious Complications." NEW QgTjKANS. May The Italian consul in this city, 1L Pasguale Corte, is not satisfied with 'the conclusions ad- vanced by the grand jury. He said to a reporter: "I had taken pains to bring Jjefore those gentlemen sill the docu- ments, papers and information in my possession relative to_ the men impli- cated in the Heimessy murder. I now find that the grand, jury has not used my information as I iad given it to them, and much, that I did say was only partially made use of. I will send a copy of the report and aa account ofiny actions to the hxmis emuieu t very shortly, and I fear that serious complica- tions may A Serious Defect, L. May The Jour- nal this morning says in regard to the recent findings of the grand jury in the New Orleans lynching matter that it seems to have'found a verdict against all the parties except "those engaged in the lynching. Nevertheless it is true that as a- civilized nation the United States is bound to give redress in cases of vio- lence inflicted by its citizens upon those of a foreign cotmtry, aad that it is a se- rious defect in our system that it has no authority to proceed by forms of law and only by special action of congress. This weakness in the laws should be remedied before there is more serious difficulty, which may arise at any time. The Massacre TJiynstifiablc. CHAKLESTOif, S. C., May In a re- view of the report of the ITew Orleans grand jury The Courier says: "The grand jury's verdict is very long, but vague, indefinite and inconclusive.

BUFFALO, ilay on the presentment of the New Orleans grand jury. The Courier says: "The lynching was a disgrace to Louisiana and New Orleans, and indeed to the whole country.
