JOHN MAY ACQUITTED
BY JURY IN MURDER CASE
Hazelton Case Was Concluded At
Noon Yesterday—Jury Was Out
Only Twenty Minutes —A Happy
Indian Left Court-Judge's Advice
It was a happy Indian that left the
court house yesterday at lunch time,
when John May walked oat free of
the charge of murder that has been
hanging over him tince last Sept. He
showed In an unmistakable way, that
he was delighted, and a happier smile
played over his features than has
been in evidence there for many a
month. He joined his relatives and
friends outside the court house, and
in spite of the taciturn manner of the
natives, there was evident joy. The
jury had been out. only about twenty
minutes when the decision was reached. Upon the announcement of the
decision of ndt guilty, Mr. Justice
Gregory informed the accused that he
felt the decision was quite justified.
He warned him", however, that there
would be a great deal of suspicion attaching to him by the public. It
would be up to him to behave well
and live it. down. If in the past he
had been using liquor, he should
henceforth leave it alone altogether.
Evidence Resumed.
Upoa resuming the trial yeeterday
morning, Chief Minty of the provincial police at Hazelton, gave evidence
relative to the investigations made by
the police, and what had been discovered.
The evidence of William J. Lynch
taken at the former trial was put in
by W. E. Fisher for the Crown. This
was the evidence that gave the
trouble the day before, owing to the
transcription of the notes giving the
name as William H. Lynch.
Fred Peters, K. C for the defense,
to take a case from the jury. He felt
he would let the jury decide.
Mr. Peters said he would not call
an*- evidence.
Mr. Fisher's Address.
Mr. Fisher in addressing the jury,
pointed out that circuims.tantial evidence was often stronger than direct
evidenoe. He contended that the Indian, May, was seen crossing the river
with a white man. Later Taylor and
an Indian, both intoxicated, were
heard coming up the hill at South
Haaelton. May wae recognized by
Williams. Taylor, who should have
been on duty tried to conceal himself
from Williams, who was his superior.
This was but a short distance from
the scene of the killing. Allusion
was made to the pocket-book found
under the body, and to the hat nearby, with the name John May written
on the sweat band. The fitting in of
the parts of the bottle was also
brought to the attention of the jury.
The fact that the neck of the bottle
was found at the scene of the murder, and the bottle Itself In. Biernes
boat, indicated that the trouble all
arose over the whisky. The Indian
had taken the bottle back with him
and inteaaed to cross by the Dlernes
boat, but could not, owing to one oar
being lost. He presumed that the Indian threw away his shirt, there, because he did not want to be found
with stains on. He rummaged
through the ohinainaii's shack to try
to get a change of clothing. Finding
he could not get over by the boat, he
went to the ferry. Finding it not
locked he took the ferry and crossed

that the initial was in error.
Brother Called.
Joseph May, the 19-year-old crippled' brother of the prisoner, testifie*"
that he lived with his family at
Hazelton. The accused lived with
them. Witness saw his brother on
Sept. 28 last year. John had got a
horse on that day and went for a
ride with a lady. Witness was not
there when he  came  hack. He saw
Address Hy Adair Carss.
Adair Carss for the defence, in his
address for the defence, wanted them
to guard against any feeling that
might creep in unconsciously of prejudice against the Indian. In tracing
the evidence given, Mr. Carss contended there was no connection shown
of the accused with the crime. He
pointed out that there was a 'lack of
evidence   at   all   points,   to   identify

He did not see him again that day
He could not remember the time.
The next time he saw John, wae
whei he came home sometime after
dark.
To the court he said this was in
lhe evening.   This was an Sept. 28.
Witness looked at the clock sometime after John came home. It was
12:30.
This concluded the evidence for the
Crown.
With regard to the presumption
that the coat on the murdered man
was that of May, Mr. Carss contended
that lf the men had earlier been together and drinking together, there
might have been a change of coats. It
was fair to suppose that they changed
hats also, which accounted for John
May's hat being near the man's body.
He cautioned the jury against placing too much reliance on the circumstantial .evidence adduced, -here was

SEDITION AND LIQUOR
SEENED TO GO TOGETHER
Ross Bell Was Acquitted Of Conspiring Against the Empire While Celebrating The Annual Issue of Free
Miner's License.
Ross Bell, who testified that he
came from Prince Edward Island in
company with Kenneth Smith, who
hailed from Baie de Chaleur, was yesterday acquitted of the crime of sedition in the Assize Court. It was
charged that on May 23, with our na-1
tion at war with Germany and Canadians serving in the war, he had
said, "I hope the Germans  will cut
the  hearts out of every  d d Ca-1
nadian that goes over there." The!
language it was alleged, was used
publicly and was calculated to influence enlisting for service. In putting forward a plea of not guilty, Bell
could not recall that he ever used
the language, and unqualifiedly denounced the language. He was drunk
at the time, which he contended was
an annual practice of his, taking
place at the time he came into the
town to renew his miner's certificate.
In discharging the accused after he
had been found not guilty by the
jury, Mr. Justice Gregory said he
felt, that if the words hart been uttered by him, he had now eaten his
words. "I advise you" he added, "to
be more careful when you are renewing your liquor license."
Mr. Manson submitted that the
case mi_"it well be taken from the
jury.
His Lordship suggested that surely
if his client wished to show he meant
nothing by this, he might give evidence.
Mclntolmey was called. He was
present at the time. The accused
had known the man for seven
months. He had heard him say, re-
fering to his own country, that it
was a good little country. He never
remembered any suggestions of disloyalty at any time.
Cross examined by Mr. Fisher, witness said he had not heard the words
uttered.
To the court, he said Bell was in-
toxfcwte*".
Ross Bell being called, testified
that he was born on Prince Edward
Island. He came to Vancouver In
1S84. He was now 54 years old. He
had lived only about a year and a
half out of Canada. He had seen
Kenneth Smith, whom he came out
to British Columbia with thirty years
ago. Witness came to town once a
year.    He got full then.
Further   questioned,   he   said   he

W. E. Fisher for the Crown in om-
lining the case to the jury said, this
was '.he first case of this kind that
had been heard in this part of the
country. It was a serious charge. He
felt that they would have no difficulty in coming to the conclusion that
the words were uttered Ii would
be for them to decide whether the
words were meant.
F. M, Clancy, the first witness
testified that -on May 23, at the
Prince Rupert Club boat-house, he
heard the accused say "I hope the
Germans will cut the hearts out. of
every d d Canadian that goes over
there." Witness was with some other
men. Witness testified that he knew
that a state of war existed at tlie time
between the British Empire and the
Germans.

Crosby said he'd walk away. He saw
nothing of the fight.
This concluded the case for the
Crown, and Mr. Fult6n asked for the
taking of tho case from the jury.
His Lordship said that while thc
case was not very strong, he thought
any evidence for the defence should
be produced.
Mr. Fulton said he would produce
evidence to show that the gun was
not Crosby's.
N. Short had seen the light. Blair
said iie was not a lighting man, tint
lie would, get him, (Crosby) yet.
There was fighting and a shoi was
lived.    Witness "beal it."
Later Blair said he was shot, and
Crosby said, well if your shot it's wiih
your own gun. There was talk ol"
making it up.
Chas. Hunter testified that Illaii
was acting very loudly. Crosby went
away. Blair followed and the sho.it-
ii-g took place.    He did not see it.
V.'ni. Crosby test-led to Blair infilling him. Witness was willing to
go away. He wenl into the toilet.
He described the shooting. He never
shot a revolver. He never owned
one. He caught Blair's hand and
pulled it clown. The gun went off. He
di_ not see Blair pull the gun.
Mr. Fulton in addressing the jury,
said that he thought they would have
little doubt as to who should be in
the prisoner's box.
His Lordship in charging the jury,
pointed ent that the defence said it
was not their gun, and they never
shot. Blair did not impress him in
the box as one who was telling all
about the matter. He was the aggressive.
The defense of Crosby was a very-
honest one, or a very clever one. He
pointed out that, anyone unlawfully
assaulted, was justified in repelling
it with force. The force used in self-
defense was such as was necessary
only.
The jury returned a verdict of not
guilty, and the prisoner was discharged.

Is Business
Slow?
It probably serves you right
You are not letting the public know what you have
Advertise!
Advertise!
Advertise!
That is the Solution
That manufacturers should increase their advertising appropriations during a period of business depression anil curtail during the years
of prosperity, was tlie opinion advanced by Roger Babson, the financial i.nil business statistician, at a
meeting of tlle Technical Publicity
Association, held in Xew York.
"Directors of your company regard
advertising as a luxury to he cut
down when business is poor," said
Mr. Hanson. "They she you orders
what to do rather tluin you giving
them orders.
"If you solved this advertising
problem in a scientific way yon
would fell them what to do, the same
as their lawyers and their bankers
tell them. '
"In a year of prosperity they are
willing' to give you a big advertising
appropriation, and when the reaction
comes they cut down to almost nothing. Take the big appropriation in
the fat years and suit it away for use
in tlie lean years.
"If you all did this the business of
the counlry would move along more
evenly; Hie business boom would be
less, und the reaction, the area of
business depression, smaller."

no good. If he did say them, he
would take it back.
Charging the Jury, His Lordship
said that if the words alleged were
used while drunk, and he did not
know what he was saying, he was not
guilty of the charge. If he even used
words like these in his own family,
without trying to influence against
enlisting,  it would  not be seditious.
The jury brought in a verdict of
not guilty without retiring.
His Lordship discharged the
prisoner.

Its place. Would a man have left a
trail of evidence by leaving garments
about, lt was more reasonable to
suppose this evidence was the work
of an enemy. Otherwise it was the
work of a madman.
If the story of the prosecution was
believed, Taylor had comn 'tted an
offense in giving the Indian liquor,
which transformed him into a raving
maniac, and he did not know what
he was doing.
Charge To Jury.
His Lordship in charging the jury,
said that the decision was entirely
In the hands of themselves. He outlined the definition for murder. They
must expect men to intend what the
natural consequence of an act would
be. Malice must be implied in murder. All homocides are inferred to be
malicious, unless otherwise shown. If
drunkenness was to be urged as a
ground for reducing the charge of
murder to one of manslaughter, the
defence must show it clearly. There
was no evidence of drinking on the
part of the accused in this case.
In the case of circumstantial evidence, the jury must not only be
salisfied that tlve facts are consistent
with finding the accused guilty, but
they must be inconsistent with any
otlier reasonable conclusion.
His Lordship said that the fac* that
a hat or a pocket-book having a name
on it, did not establish the proof that
it belonged to the one whose name
was inscribed. He could not see why
the Crown did not come forward with
evidence as to whether the hat was
John May's.
There was no evidence that the
stains on the garments were blood
stains. He did not think the jury
was justified in accepting these stains
as blood.
With respect to the bottle, if the
pieces fitted, they might reasonably
come to the conclusion that the one
who put the bottle in the boat was
present at the scene of the murder.
They must take the evidence as a
whole. They were not to put up un-
rasonable conditions in coming to a
conclusion. They must exercise the
same degree of care as would be exercised in ordinary business concerns.
They could not hope to be above the
danger of a mistake. A mistake was
always liable to be made, but they
should remember that a mistake is
made conscientiously, would not subject them to punishment neither by
Cod nor by man,
Not Guilty.
Tlie jury retired at 12:30, and inside of twenty minutes, was ready
with Its decision, which was conveyed
lo the trial judge, who discharged
i lie prisoner,
Change of Business
To whom concerned:
Having disposed of my interest in
the New Wellington Coal Company,
to Mr. M. P. McCaffery, who in connection with Mr. M. Albert will continue ln the coal business in Prince
Rupert. I take this opportunity of
thanking the public for their trade
and patronage during the past seven
years, and bespeak for the new firm,
the continuance of your good will and
valued orders.
Very respectively,
J. H. ROGERS.
