to draw their own conclusions, and

readily perceive bow strange the .Minister of Justice acted in appointing a

peculiar feature of the whole affair,

lhe fact that tin* repi cscntntinns to the

can be little doubt.

A public meeting of the residents of

The chair was filled by Mayor Wood,
who In opening the ineeling. expressed
his pleasure at seeing such a repre-
senlutive^gathering. If the peuple nf
Boundary Creek desire lo have any
influence, or weight, or power, lhey
must unite upun all public questions.
The ineeling had been called lu obtain
all expression of public opinion either
favorable or otherwise to Air. Heinze
lieing granted a subsidy by tbe Dominion Parliament, Mr. ileinze's
representative, Cnl. Topping was present by in vitalion and they accorded him
a courteous reception. They should
meet this railway question purely ns a

was subject entirely to the erection uf

license, I said lu the proprietors if
they would put up a proper place, I
would withdraw my application fur a
license, Inn I jnevsr used the license.
Q. Did you own a house at that time?
A. Yes; there was a house there at
the time. Q. That, is, yuu were doing

I had a store there, nn.l I was interested iu seeing gum! hotel accommodation, And Judge Spinks al. the time
bound me down to the erection of a

any right tu have a license. Q. Jlr,

alteration, would be far and away
ahead of the one that was called a

Snine discussion ensued nn the question of the dale uf receipt of exhibit 9,
the letter from Mr, Thempson, Supet*
intended1 of lbe Tenasket Indian
school,wtl-hdrawinghts charges against
Mr, Sidley; and il was found ou comparison of the dates Ihal the letter una
received by tflc Judge after the proceedings against. Mr. Sidley.
Mr, lj.in.bly, recalled:—
List of County Courts frnni 181)0 to
1800 put in and marked Exhibii "!)''.
Q. Air. I-lendersnu: — Referring to
Exhibit I), are yuu able lo say why the
County Court of tho 6th December, at
Fairview, was adjourned to April 10,
1898? A. I couldn't say why, Q. Mr,
Wilson:- It might have been because
there were no cases ? A. Then'do noi
appear to he ally cases entered hetween
the 21st October 1892aud the 10th April, 181)3. Q. That is one reason. And
the nexl one, un the lllh nf June 1898,
County Court at, Fairview adjourned
till the 29th of June, 1893? A. 1 can't,
say why it was adjourned, Q. The
Commissioner!—Is tin- rensnn entered
up in the bunk in any wnv ? A. Nu,
sir, Mr. Wilson:—(to Judge Spink.-.)
Can yuu give the reaauu? .Iiid;,c
Spinks:—It, would see... in l«* on the
request of Counsel; il .was uol mi my
account. Q. Mr. Wilson (to witness):—
On the 16th April, 1895, Onurt at Midway was adjourned fur iwqdavs? A.
I havent the least idea why. Q. Then
the Court at Osoyoos was adjourned?
A. It bus very likely clashed ui:I.
some nf tin* ulher en...is. Q. Then we
comedown to the lib Mav, 18911? A.
(Judge Spinks):—The 4th of May Is lbe
time my horse lunk.* .Inw.., Q, Then
then the 15th Julv, 1800? A. Thai
was on lhe request of counsel, Counsel
at Kamloops wanted iheir court ul.ered, and that.necessitated the alteration
here, Q. Mr Henderson: -(to witness)
Exhibit II is a statement shewing the
dates on which courts have been held
in the disirici. nf whieh ynu nre registrar, frnni June 7lh, 1890, up Inilu* 71 h
November, 181)8: und I his llsl nlsu shews
■ill the adjournments Ihul huve been
made between thus.* (lutes? A, I believe it dues; In lllc best of iny knowledge. Examination closed.
Mr. Sidley, heing asked hy the Coin-
missioner, if he had anything to suy,
said:—I haven't, very much tu say, except what I have already said. I mny
say, hmvevei, thai I hnd im (.'.illusion
with nny nne else iu making iln- charges, The Commissioner; -There is no
suggestion by anyone, .Mr. Sidley, that
you have acted In enNusi.m with anyone else, Mr. Sidley: I dnu'i knnw
anything about Ihese other charge, hut
seeing that the Commission was ap*
Pointed, I certainly senl in the cl.urges
did, because I naturally gol it ilii.jp.
hostile, when [heard thai Mr. Spinks
made these remarks aboul me. These
charges wero being made by everyone
about Mr, Spinks, and i certainly
thniight thnt lhey should be Investigated, I said distinctly iu my letter
that thev were unly hearsay, nn.l I.....
prepartd to tell Mr, Spiuks niyniillenities fur them, and iny reasons for lie
lieving these tilings were sn, nnd fnr
writing that: leltcr when I tlltln'l knnw
of thein myself,   Hui  heating Hi	
things, uiui hearing so much talk
around, nnd hearing Ml', Spinks himself say things iiliiini people Ihal I
didn't .'believe, I Ihollglll il wuuld In'
righl In have ii I'liuuuissiiiii In luvpsll-
gate, The only reason I cross-examined
Mr. Spinks on .he pninl Ihul 1.11.1 tv.i
that he swore distinctly I hai he tlldn'l
adjourn that second cose; now he did I
adjourn it from une day in tlm nther i
I was kind uf surprised, und I Ihink I
remonstrated with Mr, Lumby, bul he
said he didn't wish In have anything
todn with it. The other lime I ills
tinctly reineinher that Mr, Spink- said
he wuuld not. listen I.n the witnesses,
that they had perjured themselves, I
think Mr. Spinks bus probably forgotten the matter i afler il.e lapse nf
time, his memory perhaps hns proved
a little treacherous. I don'l ihink he
would wilfully speak falsely. \n
honorable man, whn had nnv regard
for his ne.ghiiors, but wnnlil du whal I
have done; and thai is iny unly inm ive.
I have nothing to do with Ihese other
charges, and I regret'very much llml
these other,people have nnl come forward to back up their charges, I simply want the commission to understand
that I am not acting in collusion wiih
anyone. The Commissioner:—There
is no suggestion, as I said before, Mr,
Sidley, that ynu are acting in coll..ssion
with  any person.    The only obser
vation which I will permit myself tu
make now with reference to thuse
gentlemen, who, in formulating complaints rather vague, Iuu iu very strung
terms, is this : it.Ts not easy to understand, if they thought it llieir duty to
make the complaints at all to lbe
Minister nf Justice, how they can
reconcile with the exercise ofth.il duty,
their conduct io nnl even answering
the formal request made for particulars
of the charges; in mil appearing h-*v,
although the enquiry was lirouglv i-i
their doors as ncnrly as pussilile, iuu
iu Ignoring the com.nlsssonaltogether,
The commission then adjomed to
New Wesltulnstei on Tuesday the28lh
Deceiiihei, 1KII7, to lake Mr'. Bullock-
Webster's evidence.
New Wi'sl minster, Dec. 28, 181)7.
The Commission sat pursuant to adjournment.

Sidley. Q. Mr. Sidley wus examined
nl Midwny .... lhe 2lsl Instant, nnd
wilh respect In Ibis case nf licginu
againsl Hayes, he was asked iln- following quesiiu.i: "Now, willi respect
to lhat case, wbal have you lu say?''
His answer is th's: "Merely that I gol
my informal ion frum the witnesses and
ulsn frum a gnnd number of persons
who said lhey were there. Mi. Webster, the Constable said it was u must
disgraceful case, lie is nuw the Chief
of Police-'I New' Wesl minster." Nuw,
whal li,ua-ynu In.say wilh respecl In
that statement nf Mr. Sidley's? A. I
have im recoil.clion of saying anything of the kind. Q. Have yuu any
recollection of speaking tn Mr. Sid ley
nn the cast- al all ? A. I remember
Mr. Sidley lining a great deal of talking
lull it is four years ago now, uud jus!
whal was said I can'l remember; but
he was talking uiiuul it wherever I
saw him, although I don'l think he
was presenl at the Iiiul at all: 1 doti'l
remember seeing him lliere. Q, Might
I ask ynur ..pinion uf the case? A.
The ...an was charged with aggravated
assault and lhe Judge found! his gulll
of common assault ; a most reasonable
conclusion to come to, Q. And would
you deny—of course I cannot truss examine ynu. .Mr. Webster— but would
ynu go so far as In uiake a denial nf
lllis statement ? A. 1 have nn recollection nf using Ihnse wnrds wilh reference tu Judge Spinks ; If I used those
words it was probably that the Hayes
case was a. disgraceful affair; hu! if at.
nil, I certainly did nnl, use it with reference to Judge Spinks, Q. It wus mil
your opinion ?   A. No.
