The only cases  upon which the Grand Jury had to  deliberate were those of Rex v. Mc-  Phatter, for. malicious damage done  to property and Rex v. the Same,  for obtaining money under false  pretences. A" true bill was returned  in the former and no bill in the  latter. The first case came before  the Chief Justice and the following  jury : W. G. Paxton, foreman, H.  K. Canavau, A. C. Dick, David  Fair, G. E. Hayes, T. Le Cappel-  lain, C. Neville, J. Nicholl, E. P.  Queen, Jas. Reid, G- H. Shirley  and N. C. Wheeling. After hearing much evidence upon the case  the Judge instructed thejuryasto  the legal issues involved, and upon  deliberation a verdict of not guilty  was returned and the prisoner, in  consequence, discharged.  The Crown Prosecutor in the  case of Meyer v. Lovell declined to  issue an indictment to put the case  before the Grand Jury on the  grounds of want of evidence.  On Tuesday. County Court wjis  held, and the first case was that of  Ware v. Ford, in which plaintiff  claims ' that his ground on Spruce  creek was over-staked by the defendant. Defendant claims justification on the grounds that the  plaintiff fraudulently obtained a  lay-over on the property. Judgment is reserved.  As was to be expected the ownership of the Willow Creek Miners'  Association ditch has brought a  large number of cases before the  County Court, and the Chief Justice expresses his intention of giving  every assistance to the various contestants with the end in view of  disposing of the case once and for  all, and that in the event of an}' appeals being allowed to the litigants  he will nersonallj' see to it that  such appeals be heard at the earliest possible date l>efore the full  court in Vancouver, in . order that  another season ma}- not be lost to  the various parties interested. The  matter was first introduced at the  instance of Palmer v. Brown, in  which Palmer, as a shareholder,  sues for an accounting and dissolution of partnership from Brown, a  trustee.     ,To   this   case  the   Chief.  Justice added as  defendants,   Kent  and Robinson, the two  other   tr'us- '  tees,   Messrs.   Bulnier,   Parrot,  W.  Queen and the Atliu-.Willow Creek  Hydraulic Co.    The case  is set for  Tuesday next, and as there will   be  many   witnesses on   both   sides, tc  say nothing of -a full array of legal  talent, the case will te an  interesting   one. ���    Owing   to the seeming  entanglement   an<l    the   numerous  conflicting  interests, the Chief Justice has appointed Nathan T. Shirley   as   Receiver, ��� so   the ditch in  question is   practically in the hands  of the Court.    The solicitors for the  iBreceiver  bind  themselves   that he-  .jVyilbnot^hi-auy   way  interfere with  iie;/w^flfcM��iv55'f7Mhe ditch, so that  ditch/ma1  A     damVjje^ft^  brought at the  iiisUxjce-^  <y  Jones v.    the   Atlin-WillBwJ&reej's*  Co., was tried before the follovviug-jj  jury: W: G. Paxton, foreman, M.  McRae, J. L- Wallace, E- D. Rorke.  and A. C. Dick. The suit is the  .outcome of the filling up the plain-,  tiffs' claims on Pine s creek with  tailings from the defendants' workings 011 Willow creek. After being  out for nearly two hours the jury  returned a verdict for $825 and  costs for the plaintiffs. On Tuesday, morning next the plaintiffs*  solicitors will move for judgment  on the finding of the jury, when it  is understood the defendants in the  action will apply for a new trial. ���    ,  The damage suit for $6000, of  Belliveau v. The Sunrise Co., took  all day Thursday, thirteen witnesses testifying in the case. This  is a case where damages are claimed  for the filling up of plaintiff's claims  on Pine creek just below what is  known as the upper Sunrise pit.  Judgment reserved.  Stanley v. Ruffner, another damage suit, comes up before the Supreme Court at a date to be fixed.  Cross-examination of witnesses upon affidavits in connection with the  case was conducted before the Registrar on Thursday afternoon.  Tuesday next is set for the hearing of the appeals in the De Witt  cases and on Thursday that of Beavis  v. Olive, a case for wages, will be  heard.  Yesterday afternoon the case of  Eaton v. Clay, was disposed of and  judgment with costs given to the  defendant. The case arises out of  the staking of a claim on Spruce  creek by plaintiff on account of non-  representatioii, and the question of  ownership.  In the suit of Duffy v. Howard,  Bruner and Duffy, for payment of  monies advanced, judgment was  given for $283.37 and costs against  the defense.  Of the representations made tc  Victoria for the appointment of a  Sheriff, nothing has yet beeu done,  and the neglect-will greatly complicate matters in winding up the  present. Court proceedings.   te^fe  -*-y.-*.'Ssf.v??  * *S_!-'   L.f  -f ./^?;i"=v-\-v:':-:"';;���-r:'-t::':::''-'  lM*lifeW*��Aff!l��3 KKSBttM  JJ53i^a^^*^,^^J^(^W%'^M*^  m  ATLIN, B.C.;:SATURDAY  :MlM��Iaini.
