FALL ASSIZES.
(Chief Justice SlrM. B, Begbie, presiding.)
Thursday, Nov. _.} (eoni'tnited),
Uegina vs.- Brennan, outting and
wounding G. W, Ensure, at Talo, with
intent to do grievous bodily harm.
Mr. Hammersley address.d the jury
for the crown, Tho prUonor had committed the orimo in a vindictive manner and eltowod that lio bote ill-will
and intended to do malicious injury.
Witnesses, who saw the . h"le frucne,
would testify, and there would bo
no unsatisfactory circumstantial evidonco to listen to.
G. W. Rasure was sworn, tuul said
ho lived in We_tminster. On August
12th last he was at Yale aud saw tha
the prisoner in the morning; had had
n conversation with him about aomo
money for work done at tho limekiln;
witness told prisoner he would havo to
look up his books and seo what wbb
duo him for wages, Prisoner had got
drunk nnd allowed a kiln of lime lo
spoil, and this, witness thought, ought
to bo paid for. They went down to
witness' houso and witness asked prisoner to knock off §20 and call itsquare,
on account of the spoiled limo; prisoner
refused and went away, Witness saw
him again in the evening when ho
(witness) was going to get the train;
prisoner asked if he could apeak to
him a few moments and wanted witness to step behind tho station; witness
refused to do so, and said, "whatever
you've got to Bay, Bay hero." "Well,"
aaid prisoner, "will you settle with me
before you go away?'' Witness said,
"No, Mike, I can't;" the prisoner then
said, '•Well, d n you, you'll novor
got awny from horo alive," aod with
that started to -strike witness; wi tunas
struck prisoner in tho faco with his fist
as he came on and prisoner sent the
blade of his knife through the biceps
muscle of witness' right arm; witness
then turned to pick up a rock to defend hiineclf. Prisoner mado a savage
stab at him, but missed him. Some
peoplo who were thero then stepped
up and advised witness to run at once
as prisoner had a knife aud would cut
him; lio did so and prisoner, seeing a
man coming down the mountain wilh a
gun, ran and demanded it. so as to uso
it on witness. The prisoner had about
865 coming to him for wages; prisoner
had ceased working for witness aomo
time beforo the affray. Prisoner had
always discharged Iub duties at tho
limekiln to witness' satisfaction until
he got drunk and allowed the lime to
spoil. There had been no hard words
betweon them until tho morning of
August 12th, Prisoner had been seeking a Battlement of his account; witness snid to him, "I'll do what's right
by you, Mike, and lit ua bo friends."
Prist mei* seemed to Rgr_o to this, but
he rofused to knock off tho 820. Witness had said to Brennan during a din
puto nb..ut the money, "If you think
you can lick me, you'd better start in
right now," but prisoner refused to
accept the invitation; witness had _aid
this repeatedly fco Brennan. Prisoner
had promhed beforo witnesses to mako
up the loss of the kiln if it wero destroyed through his getting drunk.
Witness had not seen prisoner drinking ou the day of tho assault, and ho
seemed to be as sober as he was in the
priaoncr's dock. Prisoner had not
naked witness to givo him four or five
dollars until witness' roturn, when witness waa leaving Yalo. Witness bad
used some pretty rough language to
prisoner on the occasion of that fight,
nnd had told prisoner to keep off or he
would hurt him and callod him tho
most opprobrious names as witness
attacked him. Ho struck prisoner
threo times with hia fistB and knocked
him ovor against tho platform at the
depot, After witnoss and prisoner had
been separated, prisoner came running
at witness to attack him again; prisoner
did uot get the gun from tho mnn he
had seon with it. Brennan did not
use any rough language; it was a very
cool piece of business.
Witness said do was not in the habit
of carrying a revolver unless in tho
country. Ho was n limekiln owner, a
gold miner, and bought and sold
horse-, and sometimes preached the
gospel.
VYou'ro what they call a muscular
Christian ?" said his lordship.
"Yes, sir; n practical Christian," returned witness.
Mr. Atkinson asked witness if ho
had not boen engaged in somo pretty
rough scenes in the States, in which
several men had lost thoir livos?
Witness said he would not answer
thn question unless the court compelled him to.
His lordship said the question was
totally irrelevant
Mr. Atkinson attempted to riso after
he had resumed bis seat, but his lordship said, "l will not allow you to rise
ai'uin, sir; sit down,"
Witness' clothes, with tho cut made
by tho knife, wero shown tho jury;
witness also bared hia arm and showed
the scar on his biceps. Tho knife was
uIbo shown; 11 smnll, sharp, butcher's
skinning knife, Witness said ho had |
to work for his living and had to take
n man with him across tho mountains
tt saddlo his horso for him after he received the wound, but ho bud used the
arm even when it pained him.
Wm. Dodd, conBtablo at Yale, next
walked Into tho box and told the story
fighting; heard Risteen call out to Rasure to beware of tho knifo in Bren-
nan's hand. Had heard Brennan remark in the morning that if Rasure
did not settle up with him ho would
cut the heart out of bim. There waa
a knife in Brennan'a belt when he
made thai threat.
Cross-examined by Mr. Atkinson:
Brennan was slightly intoxicated the
morning of the affray. Witness had
taken a drink with prisoner. Thought
prisoner's remark about cutting Rasure
a mere idle expression.
His lordship: "Barking doi_s don't
bite, ch.'
Witness; "That's what I thought,
your lordship."
Samuel Shepherd, school mns-ter at
Yale, next filled the stand, and boing
awont said ho had been talking to Rasure when Brennan aoooated Rasuro
and asked him to stop aside. Witness
shortly afterwards heard cries of
"kuifo," "Rasure," etc.; he ran back
und saw Biennan walking towards Ra*
sure rapidly. Rasure picked up the
piece of iron, but witness told him to
pub it down again, which he did.
Witneu turned up Kosure'b sleeve and
found a wound od the lower part of the
biceps muscle; he bound up the wound
with his handkerchief. There was no
doctor in town so witness did what he
could to bind up the wound.
Cross-examined by Mr. Atkinson:
Knew that Dr. Pearco was away from
town; was present at tho police court
examination, but was not called. Dr.
Pearce had stated that the greater
part of the wound was only skin deep.
When counsel for defense aaked the
question as to this pieco of evidence,
the oounsel for the prosecution made
strong objections.
Witness thought the wound 111010
than skin deep, the blood waa pouring
out of the centre of it and it seemed
quite deop there.
This olosed the evidence for the
prosecution.
Mr. Atkinson addressed the jury for
tho defence. He was glad the case for
the defence would only occupy a few
minutes. Tbo dispute between tho
two men had arisen about some moiiey.
This difference of opinion certainly did
not call for the uso of deadly weapons;
and the combat that had occurred
would not, he was happy to say, be
overlooked by the authorities of this or
any other country. Brennan sought
Rasure on the night of the fight for
the purpose of asking him for the
money, and not to attack Mr. Rasure.
Mr. Rasure had attacked him and
strucK him first. Tho evidence had
gono almost exclusively to prove the
guilt of tho prisoner in the dock, but
when the witnesses for tho defence
were heard he would ask them teweigh
tho two evidences carefully and lie
thought they could havo little diffi
culty in bringing in a verdict of not
guilty.
Daniel McQuurrie, first witnes- for
the defence, Btated thnt he had been
coming down the road toward the station aud saw Rasure nnd Brennan in
close confab. Ho heard Brennan say,
"You can't go on this train till yu
pay me." Rasure shouted: "Get
away fnim rae or I'll hurt you, you
—*—>," calling him an unmentionable
namo. Rasure was the aggressor,
meat decidedly. Witness was n few
feet from the combatants when Rasuro
struck Brennan, and heard all that
passed. Ruaure ordered Oflicer Dodd
to arrest Brennan after the fight.
Brennan was some distanco away
when Rasure picked up the iron to
strike him. Did not hear Brennan
make use of any threatening language
toward Rasure. lt ia customary for
miners and farm laborers to carry
knives, as witness explained, for cut-
tin? pork and "eating beans,"
Cross-examined by Mr. Hammersley:
Brennan did not follow Rasure up after striking him. Witness did not interfere when Rasure was stabbed; it
was dono so suddenly. Brennan waa
between the train and Rasure when
asking tho lattor for his wages. Did
not hear Brennan use any threatening

of the fight at tho elation platform at
Yale. Witness took the knife from
prisoner; prisoner weut round tho
corner of the station and bogged a man
who was coming down from tho mountains for tho riflo ho was carrying, as
ho wanted to shoot Rasuro. Prisoner
was using threatening language against
Rasuro, saying, in effect, "I wish I
could kill you."
Cross examined by Mr, Atkinson—
RuaiitT hud a piece of iron in his hand,
holding it nbove his head, and saying,
"keep him (prisoner) away Irom mo or
I'll kill him' when witness was con*
ducting Brennan from tho station.
Witness could not say who struck the
lirat blow in,tho fight. Rasure had
picked up the iron to defend himsolf.
Ceo. Risteen was tho next witnoss—
Is a conductor on Iho 0. P. R,, and
arrived juat in timo to soo the prisoner
with n knifo in his upraised hand
about to stab Rasuro. Wit nets called
to Rasuro to look nut foi himself as
prisoner was going to stnb him. Rasure ran and picked up n rook. Was
not closo enough to hear the language
used by tho disputants.
Ton juryman: Had not soen the
knifo until ho saw it in prisoner's
hand.
John Craig, section foremnn on the
C. P. R., sworn, said: Wna on tho
platform at Yalo and saw Rasuro and
Brennan close together and apparently
His lordship enquired of witness in
what tone of voice ho hnd beon conversing and, witness iu an ordinary tone of voice. This disagreed
with Dcdd's evidence and and his
lordship asked witness if Dodd was
lying. Witnoss retorted that he didn't
know what other people swore to, but
Ito knew what ho was talking about.
Jas, Reynold's next stepped into the
box and said ho had been employed at
Rasure's lime kiln. Brennan was foreman. Witness had seen Rasure with a
revolver; he was trying to sell it.
Witnoss had a conversation with
Rasuro in which Rasure snid ho could
havo killed Brennan had the latter not
used the knife, as he (Rasure) was the
better man.
This closed the evidence, aud Mr.
Atkinson finally addressed the jury fur
the defenco. The affray whioh took
place at Yale on Aug. 12th the law
could not sanction. As to who waa
tho principal in it he would not atop to
arguo. He would aak them first to
notice that he admitted that the mode
of settling the dispute wns not sanction-
able by law. Nothing could justify
men in resorting to weapons to Bottle
a dispute. On numerous occasions, as
has been* told by Mr. Rasure, there
had boon unsatisfactory meetings about
the money; nnd every time they mot
they parted worso friends than beforo.
Mr. Brennan is a hard-working man,
and has to earn his bread by arduous
labor, and at his time of life it is only
natural that he should expect prompt
settlements for his work. Mr. Rasure
was leaving Yale for somo time, and
Brennan wont boldly up and asked the
man who was in his debt to settle his
account. And Rasure said, "Go away
from me," and flow off iu a temper and
used the most exasperating language;
enough to raise the highest angor in
any man. He called tho prisoner foul
names and struck him heavy blows in
tho faoo, one, in particular, a very
heavy blow. There is nothing to show
that the assault was commonced by
Brennan, In a misguided moment
Brennan drew his knife, stung by the
vile epithets of Rasure and by his hard
blows. Tho grand jury had thrown
out all the counts iu the indictment
oxcept that of intent to do grievous
bodily harm. Now, if Brennan had an
intent to do this grievous bodily harm,
he must havo gono to tho station that
evening with such intent in his heart.
But the evidence produced does not
show this at all, There is no evidence
of n threat spokon by Brennan; during
even the affray itself ho used no
threatening language. Tho expression
made in tho forenoon by Brennan was
a more idle expression, which meant
nothing and wan not worthy of notico;
for, had tho prisoner really wiihed to ,
carry out his threat he had abundant
opportunity to do so, and most certainly would not have chosen suoh a public placo to do it as the railway station.
The prisoner has hitherto borne a good
character, but has in this instance allowed his better judgment to be carried away by his feelings against Mr.
Rasure; and he had always beon a -
good, law-abiding citizen and he is besides an old man. On those consideration he would ask the jury to bring in
a verdict of not guilty.
Mr. Hammersley addressed the jury
for the prosecution and claimed that
Brcnnnu was tho aggressor. Had ho
not left that saloon and got between
Rasure nnd the train ho would never
have beon in thnt docket tonight.
The exprossii'ii that ho  "would out *
Rasuro's heaitoul" was no mere idle
expression; sometimes idle wcrdi, liko
straws,  show which way tho stnnm
flows.
McQuarrie's evidence was entirely
unsupported and was at variance with
three other witnesses. Dodd did not
see tbe ocourcance as McQuarrie uw
it; in fact the two account* ar* totally
different. On the question of justification he would say nothing, as he
thought that twelve Englishmen in a
jury box would never think any man
right who drew a knife on another.
He did not belie veMr. McQuarrie's evidence. He thought it the jury's duty
to put a stop to such work in this country. Those desperate affrays often
terminated fatally and should be sternly put down. Brennan had shown tbo
utmost malice; he had asked for a gun
and gave evidence of trying to do his
worst to Rasuro.
His lordship Baid that aa the defence
Boomed to rost mainly on the plea of
self defence, and tbat as this law waa
not very well understood he would
shortly explain the same, which he did
by reading tho precepts from th _ legal
volume beforo him. His lordship then
completely smashed the evidence of
McQuarno by saying, "There is a
wound; how was it made? If we are
to believe McQuarrie it was not made
by Brennan, for he saya that Brennan
did not draw tbe knife until after the
assault, and he assures tho court that
the comb-'tauta after Rasuro's blows
never came within ten feet of <-ue
another," The question of justification of the act was for tho court to de*
oido and not for the point of the knifo.
No amount of personal ubuso oho justify a blow. When a man ia inju-ed.
by epithets or abuse there in Iaw for
the case. His lordship told a ven interesting anecdote as to the origin of
tho Coventry act, relating to disfiguring, and explained that it was at- equal-
lv serious offence with maiming. If
they believed the witness McQuurt ie. of
coume they must find a verdici of not
guilty, otherwise their cour-e was clear
enough.
Jury retired at 6:15.
Friday, November 16th
Court resumed ita nittings at 10:15
this moruing. All 'ho seats in the auditorium were occupied with a mixture
of white, Mongolian uud Siw-.li humanity; and Bmoking was the rule, not
the exception. , -The legal fraternity
wero to tho fore, escorted by volumes
of legal lore and blue papers and red
tape galore; and the "old barn," aa
someone irreverently dubbed Jnstitia's
shrine, waa a. eld as a catacomb, if a
littlo more lixoly. The press were
very much impressed by being shoved,
as usual, behind the little table in
front of the prisoners' dook. Fortunately none of the pensive fraternity
ate corpulent, so they suff_red little
from being "cribb'd, cabin'd and con-
finU"
The petit jury having duly answered
the roll call, the case of Regina vs.
Rossiter was called, but the prisoner
having left the country, Mr, Davie
aaked that his recognizances be estreated.
His lordship said there appeared to
be a misapprehension abroad at to the
nature of recognizances, and that if
the recognizances were forfeited that
was all there was to soy about it. But
the crown did not recognise this manner of commutation.
Regina ta. Ohou Chou was called,
and the crown entered a nolle prosequi
and tho prisoner was released on his
own recognizances.
The caso of Regtnia vs. Jim, an In
dian, for murder, was next called, Mr.
McColl for defense. Mr. Moresby interpreted in Ohinook for the prisoner,
but was relieved later by Felix, an Indian.
Mr. Theo. Davie, attorney-eoneral,
for the crown, addressed the jury, and
sketched the history of tho ease, and
snid that if the witnesses wero to be
believed there could be no doubt as to
the guilt of the prisoner. Mr. Davie
read Jim's statement taken at tbe polico court trial. Jim aaid he wu a
bitter enemy of tho whito men as the**'
had hanged a cousin of hii some
twenty years ago for the murder of a
man named Mountaineer Perry.
Officer John McLaren, of Vancouver, first took tho stand and testified.
He was sergeant of Vancouver police
on tho 1st of July, 1888, and wu going along Cordova street, when he received certain information which induced him to go to a placo near
Spratt's cannery, at Coal Harbor,
where ho found the body of Jackson,
the throat being cut from car to ear.
Jackson was a whiskey-soller to the
Indians, nnd a worthless oharaoter
who spent most of his time in jail.
There wero no evidences of a struggle
having taken place near the body. He
found sovoral pieces of silvor money
near the body. The body wu examined by Dr. Bockingsalo and another
medical man at Hart's undertaking
establishment. Tho spot whero the
body was found is a veiy concealed
spot, One might pasa and repass the
pli.ee for a lifetime and never discover
it. The body wu lying close to high-
water mark on tho gravel.
Cross-examined by Mr. McColl—
The weather had been dry the day of
tho murder.
Bv his lordship—There were no
marks of a struggle around the place;
no footmarks could bo seen on logs or
gravel.
By a juryman—There wm very little blood around the place to indicate
that tho man hid been killed at that
spot.
By his lordship—It looked ai if the
man had been Killed just when tho
body lay. The blood was under the
neck of tho body.
By a juryman—-The body wu lying
with the head toward the bank,
Leon, an Indian, wu the next wit-
ness. Remembered tho 1st of July;
was at Vancouvor.  Was in a oanoe

Tni. political contest in this city,
Ultbougli almost wholly of a personal character, is eliciting more interest and calling out moro   active effort on both sides than, perhaps, any
similar occasion   in the iiistory of
Westminster, and by fur tho largest
vote yet polled in the eity is certain
to bo cast on Monday, llio 25th inst.
Ono ia constrained to ask, What is
nil tlie fight about 1. No  political or
other principles that we oan see are
involved.   Two of our citizens, hoth
men  of   prominence  in  different
ways, have entered the lists to contest for the recently voaated position
in the local house.   Both are avowed
government   supporters.     In   this
connection, we may be   mistaken,
but we imagine that   Mi*. Cunningham's support   would have n moro
perceptible tinge of   independence
about it than that of his opponent.
We would not be understood, however, in this expression, as taking
any stock in tlio nonsensical   notion
started by a correspondent that, because Mr. Sam Greer, a deadly op
ponent of tho government, has seen
lit   to     gratuitously     olectionfier
for Mr. Cunningham, out of aversion
to Mr. Oorboulcl, therefore Mr. Cunningham must be really an opposition
candidate, instead of, as he declares,
a government supporter.   Ordinary
fairness would dictate that both candidate*; should ba allowed to strand
on their own merits and professions,
and, at the vory least, that no stained nnd false constructions should be
put upon circumstances which admit
of an obvious explanation.   Either
candidate, aa fur us we can see, will
make a good representative for this
oity, and both are   undoubtedly prepared to give the preseut provincal
administration a fair support on its
merits.   The fact that only two are
running, that both   men   naturally
havo their  friends  and   partisans,
and that personal matters  anyway
are not the least interesting to the
average human mind, must account
for tht* large degree of interest that
is bt-ing manifested in the   contest.
By encouraging the fullest  public
disoussion of the comparative merits
or demerits of tbe two  candidates,
within fair, reasonable und   decent
bounds, we trust that when polling
clay arrives the .lectors may bo able
to judge intelligently and  cast their
votes for the best   man.   Of   on«
thing wo may remind the lucky candidate, iu advance, whoever ho may
prove t,o be, that  his trouble   will
only begin on tho 25th of  November.   Westminstor is a stern and
criti-ul mistress, ns past experience
has .ihown, und the "obedient servant" who uspi.es to serve her must
mind his Fs and Q's, and show no
sigm* of defection or remissness—ho
mustn't even blunder palpably—or
off goes his head.   On   the   whole,
l here will be somo consolation for
the man that  "gets left."
Till, four new states, Montana,
tho two Dakotas, and Washington,

To this ambitious project, we would

Evory disinterested person must be
proud of the big republic us she is,
which i» quite largo onough for successful management, but if the
eagle's screams for more territory
aro heeded, and Uncle Sam begins
to trend on his neighbors' corns, bad
feeling and tribulation will take the
placo of the present friondliness and
serenity. Wo wish the "biggebt
ropublic on north" much joy, mitis-
faotion and strength, in all that
goes to make a perfect commonwealth, in its row acquisitions to
full statehood, nnd to what we may
call our sister state of Washington,
especially, wo extend hearty congratulations and cordial greetings on
the auspicious occasion of its newly
acquired dignity.
Iff writing of the Prince of Wales
in bis Christinas number of "Our
Celebrities," Mr. Clement Scott says
"he lias had the conspicuous advantage of a great example and u training for a career of public usefulness
such as few men in high places ever
como to possess * yet it must never
be forgotten that the position of tho
Princo of Wales lui3 been from
youth to manhood ono of exceptional difficulty. Ho has had position, but no power ■ ho has been
called upon to direct and influence,
whilst at the same time it was his
province to obey. His has been a
rule without a sceptre, and n little
kingdom without a crown." Tho
result has been a "reputation that
lias belonged to nono of his predecessors in the illustrious line of English
princes '■■ * ''r Almost a martinet in
matters of discipline and etiquette,
and an acute student of ceremonial,
learned alike in heraldry and pageantry, tho Prince has well sustained
the high traditions of the English
court and the dignity of the various
orders over which he presides and
the state functions that he administers, .But strict, as he is keen, to
detect the slightest flagvanco of established precedent, with a sharp eye
that is down at once on any accidental error or unpardonable sola*
cism, there is no moro popular or
jovial figuro in tho throne room j no
face that so lights up in instaut ro-
cognition of dignitary or friend * no
royal personage more welcome on
the battle-ship or parade ground by
the oflicers and men who hold him
in such high esteem. Tho Princo is
at home elsewhere than at tho court,
or in military or naval circles, Down
at Sandringham among his model
cottages, thoroughbreds and shorthorns, a truo type of tho merry English farmer ; at Marlborough House,
tho centre of tlio great world of commerce and science ; now making a
speech at the Royal Academy oa
art, now showing his fine spirit of
liberality by directing a fund for the
noble hearted Catholic, priest who
died among tho lepers; now bestowing his patronage on all that is
most worthy in tho English drama,
or in the amusements of the peoplo;
a courtier without anything but pro1
der pride ; a diplomatist without
the seals of oilice , a politician without prejudices; a sportsman, whose
love of sport does not wholly engross his mind; an agriculturist,
who puts his theories into admirable practice; a faithful son ; a good
father; and a staunch friend—what
wonder that tho namo of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, is received
with acclamation in every society in
which Englishmen nro wont to congregate ."

in si'ciii'ii lhe construction ot the many
piihtle works, e.pc'cliillyrondsand bridges,
which t lie great and growing Importance
oftho district mokes necessary. In this
connection I would specially mention tho
rOadS needed to connect us with tho North
Arm and Maple Ridgo settlements, and as
I intend heartily to support and hope to
w-irk-i-rdially with tho Government, I
ti-usi dial, If dented,I shnll be nblo to
render important services In Hits direction.
Within our own constituent-}- several
Important matters in tho namo lino will
demand llio special attention of your re*
p. ■inlnUvc. A court house of the size
and slvlo suitable to the dimensions
wlileh our city will oertalnlynttatn In tho
noar futuro must bo created during tho
comfng venr, nnd It will, lu my opinion,
bo tho duty Of tho Government tu assist
inntnrlully hy subsidy In tho const motion
of the free tralllc brltlgO which must shortly connect us wllli tho tit. in hern bank of
ibe Fruser, as that bridgo lfl certainly a
work of provincial und not merely of

Uut. the most Important question l*. ono

that i|tii'.slion should be dealt with la n

full rights in this mattor,and as the settlement of this question will inTi-.tourln-

IN DEATH'S PBESENCE.
Sensations of a Man Who Knows
Bis Fate Ib Sealed •*""
A Government Scout DeMribei His Feelings Whilo Being Used (or a Target
by a Guerrilla anil While Waiting
to Ba Hauged.
In ths summer of 1864, whett the rebel
guerrilla Joe Shelby and bis band were the
terror of Southern Missouri, I was captured
by a detachment of them while acting as
regimental mail carrier. At a lonely spot
on the highway, between the Union videttea
and the camp, three men suddenly sprang
cut of the woods at me. Tho hour was four
o'olock in tlio aftornoon, and as I was within the Union lines I waa unsuspicious of
danger. Just a minute before the men be>
troyed themselves a rabbit had crossed the
highway ahead of mo, and I had drawn my
revolver, hoping for a shot. I therefore had
it iu my hand whon the trio made the rush,
Ono sprang tor my horse's head and the
other two closed in broadside. I fired and
hilled the lirst man dead in his tracks. As
I wheeled to flro on my right my horse
made a sprint*- and my bullet struck the man
in the left shoulder. Before I could make
another movo tho third man pulled me from
my horse. Wo wero only half a mile from
tho Union camp, aud they did not do any
shooting for fear of creating an alarm. As
I wns pulled to tho ground tho man struck
mo on the head wilh the butt of a revolver,
and for the next llvo minutes I was uneon*
scions. "When I came to I had been dragged
off ttie road into the bushes, as had the
«ci.™ body of tlio gaorrllla, and my
horso was standing uear by. Theone whom
I had wounded had his knife in his hand uud
wanted to finish me, but tlie other protested aud hold him off. 1 was finally ordered to mount, my feet made fast under
the saddlo, and nfter going through tho
woods about thirty rods we carao to tho
spot whore the guerrillas had loft thoir
horses. They mounted, struck into a bridle
path, and aftor going about threo miles wo
cume upon the guerrilla'camp. Thero were
from eighty-five to a hundred men, and
things looked as if they had heen thoro
sovoral days, Thoy wero a tough-looking
lot of men, dressed in all sorts of clothes
and armed with all sorts of weapons, and I
gavo up all hopo as soon aB I set oyes on
them. The rebel guerrillas of Virginia oc-
cusioually spared a prisoner, but tho Western guerrilla- had uo pity.
As soon aB lt was Known that I had killed
one mun and woundod another they were
for killing mo at once. A dozon ways of
doing it wero suggested, but it was now,
growing dark, there was a large mall to be
opened and read, and "Cap'n Bill''
dc.-cd that I should be tied to a tree and
gunrded through the night, and added tbat
my caso would bo disposed of beforo thoy
moved in the morning. I was lashed to a
trco in a sitting position, a guard took a
-.c-.tou a stump near by, and'thus began
tho uight. The guorrlllas cooked and ato
su'iper, but refused mo both food and
Brink. When I protested at tbls treatment
tho juard was ordered to blow my head off
if Ididn'tshutup.
Tht; man sentenced to bo hanged doubt-
loss liope3 for a reprieve untittho noose is
i. .. .ed over his neck. While I was satis-
lied tnat my hours were numbered, I had
nothing to hopo for, It Was an extra mail 1
yy i _ riding with, and my failure to appear
would not be noticed. Tho reports of my
revolver could not havo been beard by any
of my friends, nor was the presence of the
j* ;. rrillas, so far as I knew, even suspected.
I -.iirned the matter over and over in my
i: 'id, and I could not satisfy myself that 1
liad ono chanco in a hundred. How would
they kill mei I bad scon a dozen victims of
guerrilla vengeance, and they hod either
been knifed or tho muzzlo of a revolver
huldoloBototheoar to doudoa the report.
In either caso the suffering was of brief
duration. After I hod figured it out that!
was to die I felt relieved. Indeed, there
wits a feeling of elation about it. I was
young and robust and life was sweot, but I
did not cling to it as you might expect-
Hie thought of begging them to spare me
m ver occurred. Could I bave got loose and
u mod myself I should have fought the
whole crowd instead of running away.
Soon after midnight I fell asleep, and
that with considerable noise going on
around mo, It was daylight when I awoke,
mid the mon woro turning out. Thoy
L'u.jked and ato breakfast, offering me no
pu rt, and 1 knew that overy minute brought
mo nearer death. I was not nervous, but I
v/iii- curious to know whut method they
might adopt. After breakfast had been
disposed of the men gathered about me,
and "Cap'n Bill" said to the man whom X
Imd woundod in tbe shoulder;
"Ho'o your meat, in course, but tbe boys
want to seo somo fun out of it. You kin
crack at him off hand."
' L'lie man hnd his left arm in a sling. He
prow a heavy revolvor and walked off a distance of fiftoon,paces, and then turnod and
'Waled oh me. Ishutmyoycsandcounted,
l Imd got to "seven" whon tho report camo.
Tho bullet hit the tree, six inches above my
' ;r ad, and to the right, and there was a gen*
i'i-.il laugh. He raised bis arm again, and
i liia timo I had counted only "six" whon tho
s port camo. He mado a lino shot, but was
even or eight inches too high. Tho pnln of
;!« wound had unnerved hlm. The men
.-hed and jeered, but ho shut his tooth
. raised his arm slowly, and now I folt
t.-i t all was over. I felt tho wind of his
,:i> !-*t nnd then hoard the report. Tho ball
-.pudmyrlghtearby no moro than half
n hon,
yf iua'B bully 1" shouted half a dozon men
in oliafus, "Ono more shot and you'll hit
.iiU's-oyot"
I.I-UVU9 just lifting his arm when a thus-
kot .incited, followed by a volloy, and half
a do'-cu man fell dead around me. Ko resistance was made hy tho guerrillas, and out
of tho band not over fifteen escaped. My
capture hod been witnessed by two of our
mon who had been out foraging, and the
guerrilla camp had beon located soon aftor
daylight About throo hundred of our in
fantry were quietly brought up through the
woods, and when lu position opened lire
nnd it was just ln timo to save mo. When
.our troops poured iuto camp thoy founts
about twenty wounded mon. lt was an oj\
for an eye and a tooth fora tooth iu thr
West. When we rodo away wo loft none
but dead men, and not one of thom got burial.
Tho reader may urgothat one's fooling-
under tho above circumstances would noi
(-omparo with thoso of a man awaiting deal!
by hanging. Woll, I have also undergone
tlmt trial and endured tho sensations, and
cun speak by the card. After the otoae ol
tlio w. r I wont Wost and was employed
aB n Government scout, but being
wounded by an Indian arrow in the
spring of 1807 I got a threo months'
loavo of absence and wont dowu
on the Texas coast to recruit 1 hod boen at
Intlianola about four weeks-bonrding ■■.. ri
privnto house, whon I took a Bmall auilbom
ono dny and wont off up tho inner buy
on a flailing trip. At noon I ran into tho
mouth of a crock, where a cabin wns hi
view, calculating on gotting somo matolio_
to replace my stock. Tlio cabin was about
fifty foot from tho water's edge, and after ti
"hillo!" which was not answered, 1 landed
and walked up to the house. The door stem!
wide open, and on tho floor lay a num, cold
and dead, having been Bhot in tho breast,
After u moment I entered for a closer in
vostignlion, and I felt of the body nnti
found it cold. Death bad occurred sovoral
hours previously. The cabin was pi-wretched
structure, poorly furnished, and it did not
seem as if tho motive could havo beon rob
bery,
I had returned to tho door, intending to
hasten to Indianolaandgivothealarni, when
a Asliboat, carrying four mon, landed in tin.
creek. Iran down and related tlio news,
and all of them returned to the houso with
me, Tho men satisfied thomsolves that the
body was cold, but presently drow apurt
and began to consult togothor, and after
four or flvo minutos thoir loader said to
me;
"My mates aro agreed that this don't look
right, stranger."
"How do you mean 1"
"Why, thnr-s bin a murder here."
"So tlioro has, but you don't connect mo
with lt, do youl"
"Well, wo found you hero nlono."
"But I had only just arrived. Suppose 1
had found you here. That body, us you see,
is stone cold, showing that death took plaoo
hours ago, while I left town only at seven
o'clock this morning. Ho was deud then or
soon after."
Thoy consulted again and thon he said;
"You may bo all right, but you'll have
to prove it. Wo shall take you tb town."
1 expressed my willingness to go, nnti
asked them to particularly remember the
stato oftho body,and to examine my ro*
volver nud noto its coudition. I hadn't the
least idea that I hnd gotmysolf into troublo.
but I soon discovered to tho contrary. 1
was givon lu chargo of au offloer nt Inth-
anola, and a party went up to view tho
body. Thore hnd boon u murder. Somebody was guilty. I was found thoro and
alone. If I wasn't guilty then I
must prove myself innocent. That
waB tho way of tho Wost thou.
There was but one lawyor in tho town
and be a poor ono, but I secured his services. I was confined in an old building
used as a guard bouse during tho war, aud,
as soon as tho party returned aud reported
that no truce of the murderer could be
found, public sentiment was against inc.
A warrant was issued by tho local -Justice,
and next day I was brought up for examination. Thero wasn't tho slightest
proof to hold mo on, but the squire, who
knew nothing whatever of law, nnd was
hardly intelligent in the ordinary sonso,
ordered mo held for further investigation.
Smnll squads of mon woro sont out to boiil
up for tho murderer, but at noon on the
third day all had como in except ono, antl
had met with no success, 1 satflookliig on
of a woodon-barred window facing tho
street, when I saw fivo or six men Btop
opposite, and begin to argue and discuss,
They wore talking when my lawyer entered, and coolly observed:
"Woll, they haven't found nny body else,
and tho boys say thoy are going to huu;:
youl"
"But you know 1 nm innocont."
"Of courso I do, but they don't believe
it."
"And they will hang an innocent man because thoy can't find tho guilty ono 1''
"That's about tho sizo of it. I'll go nut
and havo another talk, however. You
know we don't go much ou cither law or
goBpel around horo sinco Uio war."
Ho wont out, but presently returned nnd
said:
'Tho boys is bound to do it, and you hnd
best got ready. They will glvo you an
hour."
I folt it was useless to further arguo the
matter, and I wroto out u statement and a
couple of letters, gave my guard dlrectlono
about certain matters, nnd was then us
ready as I could bo. Was I uoi-Vous.  Not
a bit.  While I was certain that I should bo
hanged, I did not feel liko bemoaning my
fato.  If I had been armod I would havo
mado a fight for rovengo, but, as I was defenseless, I simply waited for tho crowd to

A very sorii-ua accident happened to
Mr. ll-. C. Anna'p ng, a well known
rancher, at Chilliwack, a fow daya ago.
Ho wus attending a "raising boo" on
David Ken's farm and wna standing
on tho plate, 22 feet from the ground,
when a lot tif rafters, piled against tho
sidn of tho frame, commenced to slip,
knocking Armstrong to tho ground,
The ...fieri fell in a heapall about him,
und it was thought certain ho would
bo kill'-d. Willing hands noon re*
moved tho rafters and Mr. Armstrong
w-a oxtno'ited in an unconscious con
ditioii. Dr. Henderson was sent for
nud arrived iu about nn hour. Tho
neco3!iury remedies wero applied and
in another li-iur the injured man ro*
gained i--.ll3ciou.noBB. Exaoiinution
proved ih-t lm hud recoived numerous
aerious tujurit.it, none of wliich, however, nre cJfpeoti A tu benr fitful results.
At last account. Mr. Armstrong was

been drinking heavily, and returned

inyalery, but he aitdowu and fell into
hia boat in a drunken stupor. His
bond Iny over llm aide cf tho boat, face

water whon Mr. Vianen's littlo boy discovered him and gave the alarm. Help
soon arrived mm the inebriate was
dragged from hia porilou*. position,
nud only in time, fcr ho was black in
the face aud would have boon dead in
another minute. Mr, Vianen removed tho man to his net loft and
covered Iiiiu up with blankets. A fow
hours later lu awoke from Ida stnpo
and commenced kicking up it shindy
declaring his intention of enjoying it

old man what n harrow escape he had

Mr. Samuel Greer, of English Bay,
has issued the following curd to the
electors of   Westminster;
"Without involving any jJoUtca!

peal to you nud (he country on

Mr. Cunningham nnd bis friends
look upon this pamphlet u_ nn unwarranted piece of interference on the

On motion tho plans uf lhe tire hall
were laid over for next counoil tu deal
with.
Aid. Jaques was surprised that Aid.
Curtis Bhould attack Aid. Reid behind
his bnck in this way.
Aid. Curtis smiled as he rose and
explained that Aid. Reid wus the very
man who had requested him tc bring
up this matter at the meeting.
Aid. Keary said he favored tho adoption of tho plans, but whoro was the
money to come from?
Aid, Shiles wanted to know why tho
liro committee had not brought forward
this question uf a new fire hull long beforo now, earlier in tho year when
there wii. plenty of money tu build it-
Aid. Cunningham said, ho did not
blame tiio tiro committee na thero wero
probably goud nnd sufficient reasons
why tho ball bad not been built. He
dreaded one of these terrible tires that
hud lately swept Seattle nnd Spokane
Fall, out of existence. This work
ought to be carried uut ut the earliest
opportunity.
Aid. Jaques said every man at this
council board had pledged himself tu
build thia hall, and luuk at it now.
$100,000 worth of property wns nt
stake by not having that engine at the
river Bide; thu ten or fifteen minutes
whicli must elapse befure Uio engine
could bt* run to tho wharf wuuld render nil tho efforts of tho engine futile;
it might ns well bo flung inlo the river.
Aid. Curtia snid that if the salvation
of the town depended on having thia
engine on the dock nnd having this
hull built ho would subscribe $500 him-
eelf toward. it; but it waa nli nonsense,
thu engine cuuld gBt up stenm fur better running down the hill thun standing in the hall, lt wan a mere crotchet
of thn worthy alderman and ought not
11 he euc'iuraged.
Aid. Jaques' amendment 'hat tho
plans bo laid over until nest Monday
night, was lost, and tho original motion was carried.
Aid. Jaques asked hia worship to instruct tho clork lo take down tho names
of the "perjurers."
His worship culled Aid. .Tuques to
order at onco and said ho would. not
tolerate such language.
Aid, Curtis remarked thut it must
bo pretty poor whiskey Hint Aid.

was read and re-coumiittcd, Aid. Calbick in tho chair. Tho by-law wna
read clauso by clauso. There was n
discussion on thu advisability of thu
council electing tho wator commissioners or allowing the peoplo to chooso
them.
Aid. Curtis thought tho council
ought to eloct tho commissioners, ns thn
peoplo were scarcely competent to pick
tho right men.
Aid. Shiles agreed with this view
nud snid thore was a great chance for
jobbery in this position, and what they
wanted wns n buard of commissioners
composed of good, sensible, bu.ines.
mon.
Kib worship sustained the remarks
of Aid. Shiles, and said thero certainly
wus a good chance in this position for
jobbery and boodling. and it ought to
bo supervised with the utmost care,
This viow was entertained by sevornl
of tho councillors.
Aid. Jaques addrosBed lho council
on tho water commissioners' bunds
question
Aid. McPhaden ..nid thero wns un
chance of the commissioners bundling
any cash thin year.
"I beg your pardon," said Aid.
Jaques aggressively, "they will handle
lots of cash this year."
"Well," suid Aid. McPhnden "they
won't mako much cut of it anyway."
Aid. Curtis eaid tho money would bu
paid out the same as by tho council nr
lho board of works.
Aid. Jatjues, "Woll, you bet J
haven't made anything out of that."
(Laughter.)
The question of the com misa tonon1
salaries next oame up.
Aid. Jaques thought fifty dollars a
mouth ridiculously too small for tho
work oxpeeted of thom. If tbo men
who took the position imagined thoy
hnd nothing else to do but cume up to
the city ball and loaf around doing
nothing they would be awfully fooled.
Aid. Reid sntd it was easy to amend
Iho bylaw and make the salary $100
a month.
Tho original clauae that the salary
be $500 it yonr was passed as read.
It was moved by Aid, Juqu.s, seconded by Aid. Keary, in amendment
that tho nomination of the water commissioners bo tho same ua for tlie mayor and aldermen and be left to thu
people. Tiio motion was but by a
largo majority. The mover and sec-

Hia worship said, "Yes she's n terror, I had togo to work and buy a
special gate to koop tho festivo bovine

A littlo beforo sunriso this morning,
scvcrul of tho aldermen began to feol
tbo absence of something in the region
of the vest, which they concluded only
tho matutinal meal, yclept breakfast,
could appease. So, on motion, the
council adjourned somowhero around
threo o'clock.

that duy; there woro in tho canoo,
Charlie, Tom, nnd the witness. They
had boen invited to Vancouver by
their friends, They afterwards went
up lu Spratt's cannery after having returned from mi excursion to False
Creek, Charlie hud left them nt Vancouver. The two found him and tha
canoo at tho cannery. There were two
Charlies and the one who is now living
wns tho one who was in tho canoe,
Thero wns t\ crowd of Indians at the
cannery, all drunk, dim, the prisoner,
was there, too, and lie was also under
tlm influence of liquor. Jim hud a
knifo iu his -hand holding it behind
bim. Witniaa bapponcd to go behind
pii.i.n.r when the bitter put iho knifo
in his pocket. There wero live people
in the pa ity altogether. Witness wont
away in about ten minutes, accompanied by Charlie, the witness now living, and dim, and they went away in a
canoe. Witness said nothing to Jackson that day. Whilo the Indium woro
at their camp together Jackson wont
and gut u sack of whiskey in bottles,
five iu all. None of tho bottles wero
opened before the threo mentioned
above went awny, but Turn bought uno
bottle frnm Jackson. Jackson wna
drunk and was sitting on tho ground,
dim nud Charlie, tho nccused, worn not
very drunk. The pluce where they
weru aitting wuu between the railroad
truck and tho beach; there were bushes ull around the place.
Cross-examined by Mr. McOoll—
Lives ou tho Inlet, four milks above
Vancouver, toward Port Moody. On
tho day in question witness ar.d com*
punions loft Vancouvor ut 4 in the afternoon and started to drink when
thoy got to the camp. The knife
which ho had seen iu Jim's hand
waa an ordinary clasp knife.
Ry a juryman—Mow long was it
from tlie timo they got drunk and
when they got sober'/
Witno.fi said ho did not wait long
enough to seo.
Tho jury fouud a verdict of manslaughter without leaving tho box. His
lordship directed them tu do so.
Mr. McColl asked that tho lowest
possible punishment be inflicted. Tho
prisoner waa under thu influence of
liquor supplied by tho victim himself.
The murdored man wns a worthless
character and wns well known to tho
polico. Jackson- know very woll that
when bo gavo tho Indians the liquor
their worst passions would bo aroused;
he invited his own destruction, liko n
mun g'-ing into a den of wild uuimols
with a pioco of raw beef in hia bund ;
be takes nil tho risks and cannot complain if tho animals turn upon him.
His lordship in summing up said that
nccording to English law itisnu uxousn
for a criminal that ho wna drunk when
ho committed tho offence. Iu thi™ case
tlio plea of drunkennoRS would destroy
tin- caso for tho defence ; that of adul
tery being much the stronger and mitigated the crime from murder to manslaughter. He would undor all the
circumstances sentence tho prisoner to
one year at hard labor.
Mike Brennan found guilty of unlawful and malicious wounding and recommended to mercy, tho prisoner was
brought into tlie dock to receivo sentence, reserved from yesterday. Mr.
Atkinson', counsel for tho defence, wns
sunt for and ou his arrival said he lind
no idea tho case would bo culled so
early in thu day. Ho hud spoken to
n number of gentlemen in tho city
who were willing to como forward and
testify to thu previous good character
of the prisoner, but owing tu this sudden procedure uf thu court ho waa unable to produce them.
Ho would therefore nsk his lordship
to take into consideration tho disputes
which hud occurred between Rasuro
nnd tbo prisoner, tho fact of RaBure
having mndo mu of Lho vilest language
und epithets toward prisoner, and even
struck him first in the lamentable affair
at thu railway station. Iu viow of all
those extenuating ciroumstuueos he
wuuld ask his lordship to moto out us
light a Boiitonoo as would satisfy the
ends of justice. ,
Thero wns an ominous frown on his
lordship's brow ub he said that testimony, howovor respectable, ob to prisoner's previous good character was of
uo avail; nothing can be more dreadful
than thu offence of which the prisonor
has been guilty, tho offence of the Indian lately before us, that of cutting
the throat of a whisky seller, is a mere
trifle compared with this; he could
sentence prisoner to throo years, but
out of respect to tho jury's recommendation to mercy he would sond him to
tho penitentiary for two yearB,
This case ended tho aasizes and court
adjourned sine die at two o'clock.
CORRESPONDENCE.
Other I-'Mi lo Fry.
Editor Columbian—Sir:—It seems a
trillo singular that Mr. Samuel Greer
ahould obtrudo himself upon tho electors
of Westminster with uny of his land
schemes. Westminster has no Interest
whatever in Mr. Greer, and neither can
Mr. Cunningham have any interest in
thnt poraonago if he is truo to his "address to the electors." If Mr. Greer has
any dirty linen to wash in conjunction
with the C.l?,R.ho had better do it at
home, by tho snd sea waves on English
Uny. Tho electors of Westminster are
not born foo.3, and consequently will not
allow the election to bo made a part of
Mr. Greer's schemes. We have other
lish to fry than tho smelts of English
Bny, and when Mr. Cunningham goes to
Victoria to attend to his pdvllamonatry
duties ho will find that the affairs of
