out of u deep sleep liy u huimueiing

fancied I heard people lalklug ill the
office,    Tiie lump  iu  nur worn mis
turned down low, which rt adjoins
the iiSU-e, the window being on the
same side iif lhe house us lhe office
door, The window blind was only
luilf drawn, and 1 knew il, was sl III
nighl lime. Tiie liuiiunei-iug noise und
talking continued alternately, I wus
wei wilh perspii-ulinn, thought some.
llilng was wrung und became very
noxious illx.ill lhe safe, ill which Ihere
mis niiniii $l,000of government money,

>, in-|n.ii.il, "what are I Imse men haui-

I said I wus going to see,   1
Hide by Mr, McMynn i"'lk « revolver, went to the' dining
the cluck; il. wns 8:40.   I Ihen went
through luln the hall and theie listened
ul the inside office door.   I fancied I
heard men talking softly In the office.
I then went lo the kilchen uud looked
out of the window, which faces tht-
enst, but fi-iini it. I could Illll sen the
office door or steps.   I wanted losee
if uny pet-sun wus on that side uf the
house, und then Intended In return und
go into Ihe ulliee.   I saw one person
walking baekwai-d nnd forward near
the office sleps, but Ihe morning being
dnck I could not 1-ccugiltzo who it was.  1
watched about a nilnilto, nml then Miss Mc.
Keimlo ciiino to tlie kitchen door anil culled to
mo.  I .vent to ivherc she stood.  She excitedly
snid, " There are men hammering In the olllco.
I think lhey are robbing it.  Get your pistol
and go outslda and shool and frighten them
away," or words to that elfcct.  I rushed outside to the north-oust corner of the house, winsome une standing close to the otHcc door nnd
a horse standing within reach nt the office
steps.  I thought t Ills person wns whispering to
sonic one in the olliee, and Hint the hammering
anil talking we had all heard must have conic
from at least, two people inside of tlie office.  I
Ili-cil three shots; heard sonic one Hhout "Slop I
Slop! Let's get out of this!" and also " I'm hit
in the urni!' The person then disappeared
around the corner of the house, and about, a
ininiite later I saw for the Hrst lime two persons nlioul .1(1 yards uwuy on the slcighroi.it
lending soulh and to the hotel. I fired three
more shots, then .vent up to the ofilcc door and
found it looked.  1 then went into the house
and inlii the olilce.  Miss McKeuzie came in
with a light. 1 examined tlie safe ami found it
all right.  I spoke to Mrs. McMynn. and went
back to bed exhausted and shivering with cold.
I have not tried to shield myself from any responsibility in this matter at any time. My
own statement Is the only evidence against,
inc. 1 Inld bolh Constable Deans and L'onsUihlc
Glklus when I lirst snw thein iu the morning
thnt I did the shooting, and later explained the
matter to VV, H. Norris, J. P., of Midway,
also asked Mr. Norris afterwards Ui act as he
thought host.    (linisuiblc Deans has suited
what he did. and I think lie acted properly
Mr. Hood also hns had every opportunity to
prosecute If ho so  wished.   1 am ccrUiln
neither ho nor Mr. Lewis have any hard feel
lugs against mc, and I assure j our worship I
..oulil much rather have been wounded than
wound Mr. Hood. This province hns been my
home since HUM.  I have been provincial con
stable since Itilht, and always have tried to perform my duties us such without fear or favor
,o any one, und now I do not expect or wish
lor anything fairer.  Thereby, however, I have
..1.11I0 sonic enemies, uud lliis unfortunatenll'air
uns been used by somo as a mentis to retaliate.
Tlio Urccnwood City mooting on the 1st inst. is
un instance.  111111 told that only » few were
nsked there; thai the majority of the citizens
hoard nothing about it until it was ovor, and
that one of the committee, Mr. Hreslaur.opciily
sUttcd thnl 1 hail wronged him, and that ho
wanted lo gel even with me, und would willingly subscribe *,1IM for Ihal purpose.  Sueh
conduct is, ui say tho least, very contemptible.
Mc. Hood is 1011 certain exlenl lo blame. First,
in coming lo tho olllco at the time ho did, as
the record of liis claim would on equally as gooil
if inailo within Id nays aftor location as If
made within lj iniiiutis. under tlie present
mineral acl.   Secondly, by alarming nil ilm
family by lho noise, which It is clearly shown
In lho evidence, uc made; also having Ids
horse at the ulliee door, wliell there is a hitching posl n few yards 1. way, thorehy giving further grounds of suspicion thnt the intent was
to rob llio office, and ns wc, liis failure to knock
nt the door or otherwise i-t me know who it
was and what was wauCOu,
Sccllon 52 of the Uri111i11.il t'odc reads as fol-
lows: "KveryutiO wlio is 111 peaceable possession of a dwelling house, uud everyone lawfully
assisting him, or acting uy his authority, Is
Justified 111 using such ruroo ns Is necessary to
prevent the forcible creaking and enlerllig uf
inch dwelling houso, oy night, hy nny pors	
if he belle, es 011 reasonable or probable grounds
that such breaking and enlerllig Is attended
with the Intent to commit any indictable offence (heroin.'
1 wns completely misled by ull the clrciun-
slasccs lu the case, concerning lhe fuels, and
can only thus, uml by the condition I.vos in,
explnl y actions,  I admit I acicd altogether
contrary to my usual methods, anil thai no one
cm be more sorry than I am about Ihe matter,
My object wits U. prevent nil oll'onco being
committed. I had no Intention to uouunit any,
as can be seen by the hilllol marks outside lhe
olllco,, viz., one on top of the dug kennel, one
uniler Iho roof of lhe liuililing near the south-
oust comer, and tlio one on lhe railing, which I
presume was Ihe one which afterwards caused
Mr. Hood's wound. II It had not boon 11 spent
bullet which caused this wound, or If 1 hnd In-
tended injury, lho result would probably have
been very serious Indeed, ns I used a.'18-callbre
shools accurately nnd very strong. There ts
littio chance, however, of all the samo circumstances and conditions ucenrring again, tn (not.
this is tho lirst lime iu my life I have been con
fined to bed with sickness.

EVIDENCE  IN  THE  JHcMYNN  CASE.
A fairly full account of tbe evidence taken in
the McMynn shooting affair Is presented to our
readers iu this issue, As on a former occasion
w.j signified our intention to offer no criticism
pending the action of tho authorities, we must
abide hy sueh decision, although wo are sorely
tempted otherwise. Oar slbnou, however,
c;niuot bu said to prejudice the ease one way. ur
thu other, and this is much tu be desired, as
only do we wish justice lo bo done all parties
concerned iu the affair, and if the result should
be otherwise an opportunity will be offered for
future crltlctatu.
CAME to my premises ahout the 1st of
March, one straight iron gray horae, about
II hands high, branded with a blotch brand ou
the left shoulder, which is notal all legible. No
