Young and Simpson Appearing  For the Defence     ���������  KILLED ������> WOUNDED  on  The hearing of the charge brought   Witness  by  Abner  Snowdcn Thomas  against  Win. Hannay that he hail unlawfully  taken fron* him ('riiomas) the sum of  $31 on May   13Mi last, took place "before. Justices of tlie I-teace Allan and  Matheson last evening in  the     city -  council chambers.    Tha room     was  crowded with i ntt-o.es ted citizens.  Messrs. F. McB.  Young and Russell  Simpson appeared for - the defence and  Mr.  Charles  Barker for the prosecution.    The charge  having  been  read  hy Mr. Allan, Mr.  Young entered an  objection against  this hearing.      He  contended that the preliminary hearing  had already  taken place and on  the face - of evidence brought up the  accused had  been  discharged " by the  Justices,   ll, was now out of order  for the magistrates ^p again hear the  charge.    After a case had  been once  dismissed  by   Justices of the  Peace  and  the prosecution ' afterwards finds  more evidence,  the case can again be  brought up at the assizes. The counsel   therefore  asked   lhat, their  Worships  hi ml   this prosecution  over  to  make the charge at thc assizes, and  lo decline to hear the charges that  evening.   Mr,   Young said he       was  making, this  application against tlie  express wish   of his client, V&o wished t'he case  to come up without delay.  Mr.      Marker,   for   the  prosecution,  contended that as their Worships had  already come  to a decision  on    this  point,  deciding'  to hear the charges,  there     was nothing for them  to do  but proceed.  The  court   agreed   with  this      and  "decided  to go on with the hearing.   ;  Mr. Barker called Thomas,       who  gave evidence as follows:  .-...,"I*,went',to" the office as near ,as. I  can   remember   between  9.30   and   10  o'clock on the  morning of Mp.y 13th,  payday. I called my number for    my  duebill  and      it  was  handed   to me  through  the wicket.  After I received  it I returned  t-o the office and ordered a ton of coal. I came but from.'tho.  -'office'arid-I was pursuing my way going into town to pay my -Jlls. 1 was  beckoned   --hack  by  a man  who  was  raising  subscriptions   for a widow.'  I  gave hi in 50 cents, and then he took  my name. I then lost control  of myself.  My money amounted  to  $31.91.  After .I had given  thc subscription  I  had left $31 and balance which was  taken   off ine.    I paid  out 50   cents,  and     $31.11   was left in  my  pocket.  Then when  I came to myself  I found  1  was being led iby Hannay. I would  .sometimes come, to my senses     and  sonic limes I would lose them.  When  we arrived at  Bicklc's I said:   'let us  go in an:l get a bottle of Dr. Chase's  linseed      of  turpentine   to  stop  my  cojigh.' i Then   when  T felt for       my  money  to purchase medicine  I found  my money was gone.    I notified   Mr.  Hannay that my money was misplaced.    It, was gone. I notified him.. He  seemed  to be unconcerned about (jigA  'I said to I-Tannay, 'You  know I have lost my money,' and I  asked him lo.get- it and return it to  me. I thought f c-oiiUI not have lost,  if without him' knowing it." In ans-  wer to further -miestions by Mr. Marker: "I have asked him'about it several times.' -He, said, he would sec if  aiTybody 'had found it "and would, try  and recover it. I conveiseil with him  about it se.eral  times; both before 1  He  rhe  Hie thought he had the money  did not accuse any body else,  only.man hc ever suspected of having  taken it wasTjIaiiiiay. He had never  accused Bicklc of taking tho money.  He had asked Bicklc if he had found  any money that he had pulled out of  his- pocket. Asked him ,on the same  day. N'escr spoke to Bickle about  picking up five cents.

Emperor  .Wtlriams absence at Kiel, the foreign  alike says,   will  cause no delay      in  the  negotiations  inasmuch as he     is  daily informed   of all   the  points and  bis decisions nre promptly given.  As  the  study of   Premier   Roiivier's  answer progresses,  Ihe fact .becomes evident, thai  lie jias left many  points op-  ei   for  discussion   and   on   which  further negotiations ,ean continue.     Tho  greatest   dilliculty  now  seems  to  Lv*  in agreeing on  whether (lermany an,I  France shall seek to leach a separate  agreement before meeting of the con-  fi rence   thus   eliminating   many   matters  from international action.   Cler-  rmiiiy apparently holds the view that  it _ wo'.rid be an   -act  of discourtesy to  the powers which have already agreed,  to at-tend  the conference if she     arranged  aiiv  matters   beforehand with  France.    OOici.i.! circles here continue  1o foll"..w the alTair  with keen  interest,      riiif  without  anything like excitement,  much   less  bellicose incliiia-  '1ions.
