JURY DISAGREED IN SEDITION
CASE NECESSITATING NEW TRIAL
A New Jury Will Be Impanelled Monday And Evidence
Will All Have To Be Taken Over Again-- Defence
In The Case Is That Plot Was Concocted To Have
Revenge On Him By Fellow Assyrians
The sedition charge laid against
Charles Hatnid, which was tried in
the Assize Court yesterday, will all
have to be gone over with again before a new jury. This will take place
on Monday, being the first case to
come up at the resuming of court
this week. All day yesterday the case
was before Mr. Justice Macdonald
and a jury, but finally after being
out for over four hours the jury returned and stated that there was no
chance to reach an unanimous verdict. Thereupon the jury was discharged and a new trial ordered.
The jury was composed as follows:
Geo. McColl, (foreman) C. B. Peterson, C. T. Heward, H. J. Blake, H.
Letoiirnean, W. Coyney, J. H. Bains-
ley, A. Cuthbert, Alex. Noble, J. A.
Murray, Lee L. Baker, F. R. C.
Brown.
The seditious language that was
alleged, was disparaging remarks as
to the British flag and the British
Empire. Among the other things alleged to have been said was, "If the
Germans lick England the German
flag will soon be all over Canada, and
I would like to see it." The remarks
are alleged to have been made in a
boat, when the accused, who is of
Assyrian birth, and three others of
the same nationality were rowing in
the harbor. Curry, one of those in
the boat, is not here to give evidence.
Of the other three, two swear that
the'language was used, and the accused as the third denies the charge.
W. E. Fisher appeared for the
Crown, while the accused was defended by L. W. Patmore.
For the Crown the witnesses examined yesterday morning was Frank
Jabour, who Is now with the Canadian
forces in Vancouver ready to go to
the front. He appeared as a witness
in the uniform of the Highlanders,
to whicli regiment he belongs. He
was one of the men that was in the
boat. ^He testified to having been
with the accused and two others on
the Sunday afternoon In question,
and after playing cards, at which the
accused won all the money of the
others, they went to the waterfront
and went out for a row on the harbor. While they were out the seditious language was used, and when
they landed, he with the others, vent
and laid the Information.
Albert Azzy, another Assyrian that
was present in the boat, testified also
to the uttering of the language.
Chief Gammon was called to show
that Curry, the other one In the
boat at the time, was not a resident
s
here, and could not be got for the
trial.
For the accused there appeared
Moses Sabro, who testified to the goud
character of the accused.
Sam Albert, another Assyrian, was
called. In connection with him the
difficulty of swearing took place, and
he was not allowed to take the oath.
When court adjourned for lunch the
prgtiment was still In progress with
respect to his oath. In the afternoon he made a statement in lieu of
ghing evidence under oath, In which
he told of there being trouble between them, because the accused won

ed to return it when they asked for
it.
E. A. Woods, city clerk, was the
first witness called in the afternoon.
He knew the prisoner for about four
or five months. He had had conversations with him and he spoke
strongly in favor of the Allies. He
spoke in a very loyal way.
Fred Iggulden, of the Irish Fusl-
lies, testified to knowing the accused
for about seven months. He had
churned with him. He always spoke

Cross-examined by Mr. Fisher, witness said lie was always in uniform
when he was with the accused, and
he presumed he knew he was a soldier.
H. St.Louis knew the accused who
had worked for him. The accused always talked in favor of the Allies.
Charles Humid, the accused, was
called, but was not able to be sworn.
He made a statement tl-acing the
whole proceedings of the day. He told
of the gambling and the trip on the
water, for which he paid. While out
in the boat some stories were told
and they laughed a good deal. He
himself sat in one end of the boat
and did not say anything. When they
landed the others had manifested a
disposition to keep away from him.
He had left them, and they had gone
on to the police and laid the Information. He alleged that it was a put

In the Assizes Court yesterday the
rather unusual question of administering oaths occupied a considerable
time. It arose in connection with
the sedition case in which the most
of the witnesses were Assyrians. One
witness who had no education in
either Assyrian or English, who had
come to this country as a young
fellow, who had no pronounced views'
as to religion, either Christian or Mo-
hommedan, could not be sworn, as
there was no Koran availab'e. The
accused himself also was shut out1
from going in the witness box, because he would not declare himself
either a Christian or a Mohommedan.
His situation was similar to that of
the other one, except that his education was not so deficient.
Sam Albert, who was called as a
witness for the accused, said he believed In a God or a Supreme Being.
Asked if he believed in an afterlife,
he said he was not so sure of it. He
did not believe that God would punish
him for telling a lie, but he would
not tell a lie.
Asked as to his belief with regard
to the future, and as to whether one
would live again after death, he said
that he did not know about that, as
he did not know that anyone had
come back.
His Lordship could not agree to
allow the oath to be administered
by kissing the Bible. He stated that
he was agreeable to an oath being
administered, provided it could be
shown that that form of oath was
binding upon the witness. That was
the practice in such matters. He
could not, however, consent to state-'
ments being made presumably under
oath when they were in reality not
made In a binding way.
Sam Albert was accordingly allowed to make a statement.
When Charles Hamid, the accused,
came forward to give evidence a similar trouble arose. He was ready to
take the oath by means of the Bible,
but when It wns learned that he was
born a Mahommedau trouble again
arose. After considerable investigation the accused said that he believed in God and in a Supreme Being. He believed the Bible was just
as binding as the Koran. He had not
read either one, but believed the God
and Christ of the Bible were similar
to the Koran's teaching.
His Lordship could not consent to
his taking the oath by the Bible, and
he made, a statement for the benefit
of the court.
Teacher Resigned.
Mr. Hartley, of the Public School
Teaching Staff, has resigned. His
resignation has been accepted with regret by the Board. A lady teacher
will be employed in his place. Miss
Easson has been appointed to the
staff, to take the place to be vacated
temporarily by Miss Tallander.

E1RST AID SAVED
RAILWAY MAN'S
RIGHT  LEG
The value of first aid instruction
in big industrial plants has been demonstrated in a striking manner at
Battle Creek. An accident in the
Grand Trunk shops resulted in one
of the men having his right leg broken in two pieces. The case was
handled by the Grand Trunk Railway
first aid class, and on the patient,
reaching the hospital, the surgeons
called in the whole nursing and student staff to see the manner in which
the splints and bandages had been
applied. The doctors stated that if
the man had been moved without
this expert care there would have
been a very serious chance of his
losing the limb or being lame for
life. They stated that this was the
first case of a fracture of this nature coming to the hospital from an
industrial plant that had received
proper first aid.

Well, I haven't changed my mind yet,
although we are sure getting the
stuffing knocked out of us here. The
training in Canada is a perfect snap
compared to what they put us
through here, but there is one good
thing we have to be thankful for,
and that is that we have not the
120 degrees of heat to contend with
that we had at Vernon. The temperature here is much the same as
that of Rupert, and the weather is
also much the same. We get our
full share of the rain, and the parade

MINING ACTIVITY.
While from Ihe ocean side Prince
Rupert has its rich fields in the fishing resources that are to be found
there, this city is not confined to the
water for wealth. The mines of this
part of the province are undoubtedly
to come into prominence at once. A
well known mining man, one who has
been identified with large companies
for many years, informed us only a
few days ago that this coming summer, would in his opinion, see a most
remarkable mining development in
this section of the country. At the
present time, be says, there is all
kinds of money in the east available
and anxious to find investment in
mining enterprises. These, of course,
must be promising ones if the benefits are to remain from such invsft-
ments. Wild catting, which has so
often proved a loss to even rich
countries, should be avoided. This
coming year there is every prospect
that tbe north will be the attracting point for investore, and mining
will not be the least attractive of the
investments that will be made.
Mm tlie glad hand. I thought his
eyes were going to fall out when he
saw me. I don't suppose he knew
we had left Canada. He had come
around to have a talk with McMordie,
Pettlgrew ami Agnew, He apparently
has not enlisted yet, as lie is still
in civilian clothes.
Have not been able to get. a pass
to go home yet, but expect to get
one within the next month. There is
a rumor going around that we are
leaving for the front in about six
weeks, so I certainly want to see
home again before we go. It will
maybe be the last time.

Yours very sincerely,

here on the other side of London.
This is the battalion, you will remember, that 1 tried to enlist into
when you were in Victoria. We have
all seen McMordie, Pettigrew, Agnew.
McMordie is 4th in command, Pettigrew is a captain and Agnew- is captain and adjutant. Then we have

Of   2,(i()0   .Miles   Was   Obtained By That
Station.
A range ot 2,000 miles has been
obtained by the Estevan wireless station, which is half-way up the west
coast of Vancouver Island, that is to
say communication has been kept
up with a vessel considerably more
than half-way to Yokahama, after
which the vessel is within range of
the wireless station in the northern
part of China.
These exceptional results secured
by the Estevan station are due to the
favorable atmospheric conditions on
the Pacific Ocean. Hitherto there has
been fairly good communication with
the wireless station at Honolulu. During the summer the conditions for
wireless operation on the Pacific are
just average, but they improve in the
fall and are extremely good in the
i winter, especially at night, when
there is freedom from otmospheric
electrical interference which is sometimes serious during the day.
The Estevan station has two wireless sets, one of five kilowatts and
one of one kilowatt. Sending with
the ordinary wave length of 600 metres the extra power does not seem
to increase the range to any marked
degree, but when a special wave
length of 1,000 metres is used the
extra jiower givsjs greater range.
The 000 metre wave length is used
for all shipping work, and is the wave
provided by the international agreement.
The Estevan station has been communicating at night with liners on
the Japan route at distances of 1,000
to 1,500 miles. Recently experiments
have been made to ascertain just
what distance could be reached by a
station working with large ships, and
it has been found thai the station
could communicate steadily with
ships up to a distance of 2,000
miles.
For a small station of this kind the

PARCEL POSTAGE
FOR THE TROOPS
DEPARTMENT AT OTTAWA GIVES
INFORMATION FOR GENERAL
PUBLIC
For  Prisoners Of   War   Free  Trans-
mission Has Been
Granted.
The Post Oflic Department is in
receipt of applications to have parcels addressed to our soldiers in
France sent free, or at reduced rates
of postage, there evidently being an
Impression that the department has
control of these rates and could do as
it wished, but this is not so, as the
question of postage is fixed by International-agreement, so that it is
not within the power of the Canadian
Post Office Department to undertake
to carry the parcels free or at a reduced rate of postage.
Under international law, provision
is made for the free transmission of
parcels for prisoners of war, but this
privilege does not extend to parcels
for troops engaged in active service,
nor is it within the power of the
department to so extend it.
The rate of postage required on
parcels addressed to the troops depends upon the location of the addressee. If the addressee Is in England, the rate on parcels for England applies, which is twelve cents
per pound; whilst, if he is in France,
the parcels are subject to the rates
applicable to parcels for France,
which are as follows:
1 lb., 32 cents; 2 lbs., 40 cents;
3 lbs., 48 cents; 4 lbs., 64 cents;
5 lbs., 72 cents; 6 lbs., 80 cents; 7
lbs., 88 cents; 8 lbs., $1.02; 9 lbs.,
$1.10; 10 lbs., $1.18;  11 lbs., $1.26.
These are exactly the same charges
which existed for years between Canada, England and France before the
war, and are the result of an agreement or Convention made between
these countries and Canada, and as
these countries have not agreed to
lower their rates between England
and France, Canada has to pay them
the same rates as before the war, and
must charge the same postage.
In all cases parcels for the troops
must be addressed to Army Post Office, London, England, but this does
not in any way affect the rate of
postage which depends entirely upon
the location of the addressee.

up job by them to hurt him. He went
into the history of Curry having defrauded Sam Albert out of his money,
and of his having feared him (accused) when he came here, for fear
he should enlighten Albert on that
point.
In addressing the jury, Mr. Patmore put forward the argument that
it was not within the bounds of reason to believe that this man would
be guilty of saying what was alleged.
He was fin Assyrian, and as such,
suffered from the Turks, who were
the enemies of the British in this
war. It was only reasonable to suppose that he would be in favor of
the British.
Mr. Fisher made a very strong
plea for the conviction of the man.
He contended that if it were a put
up job by the others to do him an
Injury, when did they concoct the
plan. It was in evidence from the
statement of the accused himself that
the others kept away from him after
landing, and went and informed upon
him. If they were concocting a
scheme that could not occur.
His Lordship explained that there
were many phases of sedition. He
was accused of making remarks of
contempt to our flag, contempt for
our King, and contempt for Ihe
ocuntry that was giving him his liberty. These were strenuous times.
While the statements alleged were
made before Assyrians, some of them
came to this country while under age,
yet one of them, it was evident, had
since    shown    his    loyalty    to   this
CADET ORDERS,
country by enlisting. One statement
alleged to have been made, was "If
Germany licks England the German
flag will soon be all over Canada,
and I would like to see it." They
could consider whether there was
likely to have been any motive for
laying this charge unfounded against
the man. On the point of the charge
being a concocted one, they would
have to consider how events conspired to make this possible. He commented on the evidence of Azzy, who
impressed him.
Referring to the fact that that
evidence had been given as to the
loyalty of the accused. His Lordship
said It was a question of whether he
made the disloyal statements, it was
not the Question of his loyally.
The jury retired at 4:20. and not
until 9:30 did they come in, ind then
it was with the announcement from
the foreman that they had not reached an unanimous decision.
His Lordship asked if they had
given the matter their most careful
consideration, and whether there
was a possibility that if they were to
retire for a time again they might
not reach a verdict.
The foreman said there was no possibility of that, to which the rest of
the jury agreed.
His Lordship pointed out that this
was an important matter. It was a
matter that involved considerable expense to the country, and that a new
trial should not be ordered unless
there was absolutely no chance of
their agreeing. He said that he did
not wish to influence anyone. The responsibility rested with each one.
With no prospect of a decision being reached, he ordered the discharge
of the jury, and fixed the new trial
for Monday morning at 10:30.
