HEAVY FINES IMPOSED ON SOME  i      ______   ' ' ' o  Evidence  Forwarded  to Attorney-  General for.Instruction In  White Man's Case.  Whites and Indians who, participated in the fracas aboard the  Cluxton two'weeks ago, lust Saturday were before C. Harrison, stipendiary magistrate, and- Jamea  Martin, J.P., who inflicted heavy  penalties. Eight Indians were  ehargYil with uniting in an assault  on Leslie Randol and Freeman  Tingley, and Randol in turn was  up on a charge of us-sault with intent to  do  grievious   bodily harm  feared trouble, he said, and pulled  to the whitemen's boat to bring  White away. Randol threw White  overboard and struck Matthowb  over the^arni and head with the  tiller, breaking his arm and knocking him unconscious in hie boat.  Randol said he was compelled to  defend himself. Then Josha Col-  lison boarded the boat and Tingley endeavored to strike him with  an axe. The whitcmen then  boarded the steamer and sought  refuge in the pilot house. They  remained in the pilot house until  the steamer reached Musset when  the Indians forced an entrance  and overpowered the whites, Col-  liaon, according to the evidence of  the engineer, jumping   on  them.  In. the meantime a messenger  was sent for a police officer and  wnen he arrived he accompanied  the wbitemen from the s lea trier.  ��������� Indian Agent Deasy appeared  on, behalf of the Indians "and  asked for the dismis&al of the  charges against Joseph Adams.  Thomas ' Nutcomb and George  Jones. In.the case of Collisou the  agent thought he was blaniable,  and, considering that four Indians  defence   was   pleaded by/ Randol.  The magistrates considered this  case'-" should be, laid "before* the  attorney-general. - Randol vae&n-  while is under $200 bond. '  Magistrate Harrison remarked  that he had lived more than 30  yeaas on the island, and never had  any trouble of this kind occurred  before. He advised r both Whites  and Indians to be more careful.  He said he could not understand  why the captain did not  prevent  the troubleon the- steamer.    -/   ,",          /   ���������--  -������  Indian School.
