Mill leu Death uf Miss I.nu-;.
Tlio town  was  startled on  Monday
evening by the news of Miss Lang's
death.     She   wns out riding, ncconi-
pauied  by  her cousin, Mr. G, B. Mc-
Deriuot, when she complained of a pain
in her side, shortly  after she fell from
ber horse dead.    Dr. Taylor was called
and said death luul resulted from some
heart   trouble und   was of  thu opinion
that horseback  riding was loo violent
fXdi-ciso  for a person  iu  tho state of
health of  the deceased.     Miss Lang
was   one   of   the   oldest  residents of
Gobi ;n and was ever ready to lend a
helping hand to nny one in need.     A
member of St.  Paul's Church, taking
uu active part  iu ull church work nud
giving her services us organist for a
number of years sho gained the respect
aud esteem of her fellow citizens.     To
suy that she  will be missed in church
and social circles is to put it lightly.
The funeral took place on Wednesday
evening  from the  deceased's late residence to St.  Paul's Church and from
theuc'j  to  the   new   cemetery.    Tho
funeral  was the  largest ever seen in
Golden, tlie   whole   town turned out
and also a number of outsiders. Messrs
G. E.  Manuel. C. E. Wells, M. Dain-
aril, A. G.  M. Spragge, A. P. Cum-
mins, and C. A. Warren  were the pall
bearers.      Rev.    Archdeacon   McKay
conducted   the service in a very  iin.
pressive manner.     Much sympathy is
expressed  for  the  deceased's relatives
iu their bereavement.
Immorality lu Gulden*
The immorality which prevails iu
onr town today is a disgrace to any
civiline.l coiu.iiiiiiity. Silence has been
kept tu i )ulle' in this lui.tter, but things
have C'liiu lo such a state that it is
impossible tu hold back uuy longer,
1'ne must c nis,actions person on the
streets uf Gulden to-day is the prostitute. Tli is dais of people are alluwed
more lilierty here than our respectable
���itis-ens. Vhi* this should be so is
beyond our comprehension and tho
uiily explanation seems to be that the
Governtiii nt ol.icials here do not perforin their duty. Only this week wo
rind a Government olHcinl actually
pleading in au open court uu behalf of
those disreputable characters against
,i poor working iniiii who was probably
enticed to one uf ihuse houses, fleeced
uf every cent he had and finally accused
uf stealing seme trumpery jewellery.
Two or three times last winter several
if those women made the streets resound with their shrieks and curses
yet no arrests were made, in fact tbeso
people si.-oiu to be shielded from tlio
law rather than otherwise. It is time
die residents of Golden made some
move in the mutter and not sit quietly
uy ninl see the minds of their young
corrupted by the immorality which
exists here at the present time.

John Milligan was arraigned before
Justices Armstrong and Aylmer on
Thursday morning, charged with
stealing three rings from one Nettie
McDowell, an inmate of one of the
houses of ill fame. H. R. Moodie conducted the case for the prosecution and
H. S. Cayley appeared for the defence.
The prisoner pleade-'. not guilty, the
following is a summary of the evidence
H. R. Moodie deposed that on tha
morning of the 16th he was called to
Lottie's house. On arriving there he
found the accused lying on the floor
drunk. Nettie McDowell, one ol the
inmates, complained the prisoner bad
stolen three rings belonging to her and
had only brought back one of them.
Then arrested him.
Isaac Ross stated that on Monday
evening he saw Milligan with two
rings in his hand. One was flat with
three stones in it, the othdr was a
small ring which he did not see'
clearly. Prisoner said he got them iu
one ol the houses ot ill fame, hc did,
not know which, nnd was going down
again to give them up. i
Samuel High stated that he saw the
prisoner with a ring on Tuesday morning in the Russell House bar room. |
Judging from the prisoner's conversation he, (the prisoner,) did not seem to i
know where he had got it. Couldn't
recognize the ring if he saw it again. I
Nettie McDowell was then called
and stated that she lived in Golden
and had means to live by. On Monday afternoon jusl us she was about to
go up town the prisoner came in. She
went up town and left the prisoner
sitting in the parlor. Didn't see him
again till next morning when the
housekeeper awoke ine saying there
was a man wanting to see ine. She
told me he ha 1 some of my rings. I gut
up and asked hiin for tbem. He handed one to the housekeeper and she gave
it to me. I went to tbe drawer where
I kept them nnd found that three rings
were missing. I asked him to return
the other two and he gave mo uo
answer. I then called Mr, Moody to
arrest him.
Cross-examined by Cayley.-Tlu
prisoner seemed to be drunk. Hid a
diamond bracelet, diamond pin, necklace, watch and chain, and diamond
locket in the same drawer but in different cases.
Witness re-called stated that one
ring was worth $3o and the other $15.
This ended the evidence for the prosecution.
Mr. Cayley asked that the case be
dismissed. . He stated that there was
no evidence to prove that the rings
belonged to this woman. Nu evidence
to shew that the prisoner stole the
rings which he was seen with. The
one in his possession he had returned.
Mr Moody differed from Mr. Cayley
and said that Nettie McDowell's evidence shewed that tho rings were part
of her jewellory, and Isaac Ross' evidence shewed that the prisoner hail
two rings in his possession, only one
of which had been returned.
Mr. Cayley then asked that the
court trv this case summarily. Under
Section 78S, two Justices of the Peace
could try n case of this kind.
Mr. Moody had no objections to
make to the request. The court was
then cleared until the justices hud considered the matter. On the re-opening of the court the. justices announced
that they had decided to try the case.
Isaac Ross was the only witness
called and his evidence was much the
same as was previously given.
Mr. Cayley then made an application
for dismissal of the case, briefly reviewing the evidence nnd pointing out
that no evidence had been adduced on
which to convict tbe prisoner
The court room was again cleared
until the justices had considered the
evidence. They finally decided to dismiss the case with a warning to the
prisoner to stejr clear of those houses
in the future us it would ouly lead him
into trouble.
