It is sometimes said that tho French
Canadian population of Canada favor
annexation to thoUiited Slates, but
thai is not true. French-Canadians
as a body are as loyal as any class of
Canadian Subjects. The French-Canadian generally is what Sir George
Carter use 1 to call himself, n French-
speaking Englishman. In short, Ihe
people of Canada do not desire either
annexation or independence. They
are perfectly satisfied and contented to
be a part of the British Empire,

H's Lirdship then addressed Ihe
Grand Jury, congratulating them on
the orderly state of Kootenay. and of
E. Kootenay particularly, as com pared
with the country around Kamloops,
where there wore several disorderly
spirits. He then went on to say that
only two indictments wee before them ;
one confuting of two charges -one for
rape an 1 the other for indecent assault,
against Divi I Larmour. and the other
against AV. P.'Hirvoy, editor of ihe
Goi.hkx EllA for criminal libel.
Ho would not go into either case
having just stepped from the train to
the bench, but would remind I hem that
if they threw out the first indictment
against Lirmour, they must then proceed to tho minor charge against him
of it decent assault, alt hough if they
returned a true bill on the first charge
they need not trouble about the second
one, which would not, ho proceeded
with if he was found guilty on the
graver charge. He then tol.l them
���hat they could hive all tho depositions
taken before Mr. J 'F. Armstrong,,!.P.
at Golden, and could eirmiiij ou oath
any of the witness they wished.
His lordship explained that in a
grand jury, 12 must bo unanimous one
way or tho other and therefore ought
to consist of 28 men, but in a scattered
prisoner on tlie charge of rape and by
some unexplained mis-inderstnnding,
no bill ou the charge ot indecent assault. (How 11 apparently well educated men ciuio to tho conclusion that
the prisoner committed a rape without
indecently assaulting the woman is
best known to themselves )
The prisoner was then brought in
and the charge read to him by Mr.
Blytho, and in answer ho pleaded not

an I dem in.led that alt witnesses leave
the court and remain beyo' 1 earshot
and then called the prosecutrix.
Mr. Hanson was sworn as interpreter and ho interpreted ihe oath lo
who   stated as   follows: -First   saw

them down, ho was laying on them.
I did not see him shut up the knife or
put it iu his pocket. He left immediately he had finished the assault. I
met two men whilst going to Smith
and Campbell, one was W. Tuinton.
I only stopped to ask if they knew
where Smith and Campbell were working. Tuinton bad a gun und bad shot
a chicken, be gave it to me. I told
Smith aud Campbell I bad lieen abused
tlid not say I had been raped. I showed them my underclothes. Johnson
returned on Saturday morning and I
told him at once what had occurred.
When I met Larmour on the second
day I meant to prosecute him. I hail
no hard words with him then. \Yu
came tu Golden in llie same sleigh.
There was whiskey along, I did not
drink with the prisoner, nor did Johnson ns far as I know. I was married

about a mouth.

skip ihe country.
Mr.   Wilson addressed the jury
follows : -This crime and tlio crime of
murder are  the only  crimes now punishable with death and iu this case the
prisoner's life is in your hnnds.  ,  Several of us men would sooner by far see
our women folk  dead rather than suffering  the elf Oct of   ibis  most awful
crime.      I want you to  disabuse your
minds of that chivalrous feeling which
lives iu every   mail's heart  and which
is stronger in these   western countries
of ours where women  are scarce than
in thu eastern countries where women
are more plentiful,ami to try and judge
this case solely by the evidence.      K>-
ineiuber you have not io hear sufficient
evidence to prove   L.iriuouv innocent
but the Crown's  just duty is to establish Lttl'Ulour's guilt beyond all tlouhl.
We will  now see how  far the Crown

house at the very time the assault was
said to be committed.
Smith told one tale before the magistrate at Golden and another bore and
yet he may be honest and truthful as
lots of men get o nfiised and forget
things and I think he is honest.
McKay's evidence is strongly in
favor of the prisoner, believe it or not
as you will, you know the man and I
do not.
I throw all tho responsibility as I
am entitled to do upon vein- shoulders
so now judge fairly and equally and
not ni haphazard. Had it not been for
the evidence of McKay and Tainton I
would have said the case was undefended and now you have to judge of
llie worth of that evidence.     I noticed

Judge- I refuse lo take this evidence.
oi her point is about tin re being uo
corroborative evidence. You must remember that in a case of this kind you
cannot get any because there are never
any eye witnesses and nearly all ihe
other evidence which would bo corroborative is inadmissible, according tu
the law and I therefore maintain that
the case is complete ns it stands.
The Judge   summed   up siying: ���
These cases are  always most unpleasant cases for everyone connected with

As Mr,   Pllltoll    told you, this is   a
case which does not, require corroboration.    The woman and all the witnesses  are  known  to most of yon, io me
they are all unknown.  If this woman's

Indignation at Donalil.
A large and reoreseul.tl ive meeting
of tlie citizens of Djiutld was held iu
the school house on Monday evening
lust for the purpose of considering
what steps were necessary to be taken
for tlie further protection of the moral
welfare of the residents of this district.
Rev. Mr, Ross was called to tho chair
and Mr. Taylor was appointed secretary. The reason the meeting had
been called was owing to the decision
of tho court in the late trial, Regina
vs. L.triuotir. Messrs. Watson, Forrest. Jordan, Muthie and Murphy were
the chief speakers. These gentlemen
were oi the opinion that had a man
been sent to represent the Grown who
bad hail lime to work up the case, the
result would have beoii different. This
was the third case of the kind in this
district in which the man had been
Mr. Watson moved, seconded by
Mr. Manuel, that a committee be appointed to frame a memorial to forward io the Lieut.-Governor, compluin-
.ng of the manner iu which this locality lias been Healed, and pointing out
to him the fact that it is unfair to call
,in au outside lawyer at a moment's
notice to take charge of a case which
is of such great importance to tho
general public, one who knew nothing
of the case beforehand and was therefore entirely out of place as Prosecuting Counsel.    Carried unanimously.
It was again moved by Mr. Watson,
seconded by Mr. Muthie that Messrs.
Manuel, Jordan, Baker, Forrest, Dow-
uie of Donald ; Harvey of Golden ; and
Xuilson of Beaver, be a committee to
draw out the memorial and have the
same signed by the residents of Donald, Golden, Beaver and surrounding
district.   Carried unanimously.
A voto of thanks was tendered to
the School Trustees for the use of the
school house, and also to Mr. Ross for
) his services as chairman. The meeting
then adjourned by singing "Cod Save
the Queen."
