Dear Sib,—Enclosed please find a copy of paper served on me to-day, which speaks for
itself. No money has been guaranteed for expenses. Do you advise me to appear unless
money is produced for expenses or let it go by default.
You will perceive by notice that we have to appear in Nanaimo on the 3rd of August, so
please answer by return mail.
We have notified Mr. Simpson (lawyer) that we will not appear unless $100 is produced
for expenses.
The fines were paid under protest on the 30th of June, 1894. If we have to appear will
it be necessary for the three Justices to appear, or will one Justice do?

Andrew McKnight, Esq., J.P.,
Union, B.C.
Dear Sir,—I have your letter of the 25th instant, enclosing copy of a notice served on
you of application for a writ of certiorari in the matter of the conviction of Yee Kim, and
asking whether it will be necessary for you to appear.
In reply, I beg to say that I think it will not be necessary for you to appear upon the
notice.
In the event of the Judge ordering the issue of a writ of certiorari, the writ will be
served upon you, and you can then send the same, together with all the proceedings in the
case—that is to say, the summons and the evidence—to the office of the Deputy Attorney-
General here, and the matter will be attended to from this office.
Yours truly,
(Signed)        Theodore Davie.
P.S.—Since dictating the foregoing, a letter has been received upon this subject from
Mr. H. A. Simpson, of Nanaimo, of which I enclose a copy. Kindly let me have a full report
of the matter.
[Enclosure.]
Nanaimo, B.C., July 27th, 1894.
To the Deputy Attorney-General,
Victoria.
Dear Smith,—You will by this boat receive a letter from three Justices of the Peace at
Union Mines, namely, Grant, McKnight, and Walker, in regard to two certain convictions
which they made in the month of June against a Chinaman and woman, as well as a notice I
forwarded to them, and which has been served on them. They inform me that they have
written to you, asking your advice as to what course they had better pursue in the matter.
In fact, it was I who suggested to them that they should write to you, as the action which I
am taking is not in any way vindictive, but merely for the purpose of endeavouring to have
things in the future conducted at Comox and the District in a regular manner. The facts in
this case are that there was some disagreement among the Chinese at Union.    Yee Kan was 59 Vict.      Actions against Messrs. Grant, Walker, McKnight, J. P's. 995
arrested and tried on a Sunday night, Nun Oy on a Monday following. When in Union, I
attended the Justices to see a copy of the informations, convictions, and evidence. I was
informed by them that there were none in existence. The fact is, they had made a conviction
and fined two people, one on Sunday and one on Monday, and collected the fines without
having a scratch of the pen to show what they were for, and at the present time can only tell
from memory, as far as they can recollect, what the information was.
Of course you can understand the position in which they have placed themselves under
the Statute, but it is not my desire to take advantage of their position: if they will simply
refund the money which the Chinese have paid them any further proceedings will be stayed.
I write you this letter as I wish to assist you in determining the position of the case on the
receipt of their letter to you. As I am going to Union next week, if it would not be too
much trouble, kindly let me hear from you before Tuesday.
Yours truly,
(Signed)        H. A. Simpson.
Union Mines, 2nd August, 1894.
To the Deputy Attorney-General,
Victoria.
Dear Sir,—I am in receipt of your letter of the 30th July, advising me regarding a
notice served on Justices Walker, Grant, and myself.
Also of a copy of a letter received by you from Mr. Simpson, of Nanaimo.
From pencil notes taken at the trials, I beg leave to submit the following report of the
matter:—
About the beginning of May, two Chinese women of ill-fame came or were brought to
Union and commenced their immoral practices in a house in full view of the respectable part
of Union, the part wholly occupied by the white people. Soon after their arrival, complaints
began to be made to us concerning their conduct, and we were repeatedly asked to make an
endeavour to put a stop to their conduct. With a view to that end, Mr. Walker and I went
to the house occupied by the women, some time previous to 10th of June, and requested that
they leave the place, which they through Yee Kan promised to do. On the following day,
one of the two went away, the other one remaining. After that, things were a little better
for a few days only, soon becoming as bad as ever again until the Sunday night spoken of by
Mr. Simpson, when a Chinese free fight took place in front of the house where the woman was
stopping, several of the men being badly hurt. We then decided to put a stop to the way in
which they were conducting themselves. We accordingly caused two of the known ringleaders to be arrested and fined for committing a breach of the peace. We also summoned
Yee Kan as the lessee of the house in which the Chinese woman was staying. We convicted
him on his own evidence, he saying that the house was not his; he only paid one dollar per
month for it. We convicted him and fined him fifty dollars and five dollars costs, giving him
until 30th of June to pay, which was duly paid on that date.
We having learned in the meantime that the woman (prostitute) was the cause of all the
trouble, decided to put a stop to the cause of all the disturbance. We therefore caused her
arrest on a charge of prostitution. We tried the case, and found evidence of the most convicting kind—evidence we can produce at any time. We convicted and fined her fifty dollars
and ten dollars costs, giving her until 30th of June to pay the fine, which was duly collected
on the afternoon of that date.
I may state that the case of Yee Kan was tried on Sunday night, 10th of June, and the
case of prostitution (Gan Oy) on Monday evening, June 11th. The reason we tried the case
on Sunday was because there was no gaol or lock-up of any kind nearer than Comox, a
distance of more than ten miles.
I respectfully submit the foregoing as a simple statement of facts.
I have, etc.,
(Signed)        Andrew McKnight,
Justice of the Peace.
P.S.—Regarding Mr. Simpson's letter, saying that we informed him that we had written
to you asking your advice as to what course we had better pursue in the matter, and that it
was at his suggestion we wrote to you, I can only say that we have had no correspondence 996 Actions against Messrs. Grant, Walker, McKnight, J. P's. 1896
with Mr. Simpson. The man to whom Mr. Simpson sent the notices, and who served them
on us, suggested that we write to the Attorney-General and ask for advice, but why Mr.
Simpson makes the assertion I cannot understand. He also says his action is not vindictive,
but merely for the purpose of having things conducted at Comox and District in a regular
manner. I may say that our desire to have things conducted in a regular manner is as great
as is Mr. Simpson's, and are more than willing to, at all times, take advice from those in a
position to give it.

J. H. Simpson, Esq.,
Barrister, etc., Nanaimo, B. C.
Dear Sir,—In the matter of several County Court suits against Messrs. Walker and
Grant, Justices of the Peace, the Justices in these matters, who seem to have acted very
irregularly, have called upon me in reference to the suits which have been brought for a
refund of the fines inflicted by them under the circumstances mentioned in your letter to Mr.
Smith some months ago. 59 Vict.      Actions against Messrs. Grant, Walker, McKnight, J. P's. 997
The Justices seem to have acted very irregularly indeed, and no return until now seems
to have been made to the Treasury of the fines.
You have given notice to the Magistrates of the applications for writs of certiorari, and
as it seems to me that the convictions cannot stand, I shall be prepared to recommend to the
Executive the refund of the fines.
Mr. Grant informs me that you will be willing to discontinue the actions against him and
his co-Magistrate upon having the fines refunded. I should like to know if this is the case,
although I shall not make the discontinuance of these actions a condition to passing the Order
in Council referred to.
The Magistrates in this case seem to have brought the trouble upon themselves. Still I
think they have acted in good faith, and, although they deserve to suffer for their negligence,
I shall be glad to know that the suitswill be dropped.    Kindly inform me as to this.
Yours truly,
(Signed)        Theodore Davie.
The Hon. Attorney-General,

Nanaimo, October 2nd, 1894.
Sir,—Your favour of the 1st October in re Messrs. Walker and Grant, Justices of the
Peace at Union, received.
We were sorry to have been compelled to take proceedings against these parties for the
non-return of the conviction made by them, but were compelled to do so on account of the
high-handed course which they pursued at the trial of the several informations, as well as
towards us when we asked them for the copies of the proceedings and an explanation of what
had been done. However, we are willing that all matters should drop and the suits stop,
provided that they return to us the amount of the fines which were paid them by our clients
and the costs of the proceedings so far as they have at present gone, as we do not care to
prosecute any further, as they seem inclined to admit their error, and possibly the costs will
be sufficient penalty for them to pay.
I have, etc.,
(Signed)        H. A. Simpson.
Nanaimo, B. C, October 2nd, 1894.
Andrew McKnight, Esq.,
Union Mines.
Dear Sir,—We have this day received a letter from the Attorney-General at Victoria in
regard to the convictions made by you and your co-Justices of the Peace in the Chinese
matters, which letter is the result of the conversation which Mr. Grant has had with him while
in Victoria this week.
As far as I can gather from the letter, Mr. Grant has been informed of the very
irregular manner in which you have acted. When in Union the other day I suggested that in
all probability a settlement might be made by the return simply of the fines, but since my
return, and in conversation with the Chinese clients, I find out that such a settlement cannot
be effected, and that, together with the fines, you will have to make provision for the costs, as
they absolutely refuse to do so, and as I had two trips to Union Mines in this matter, and
have issued five writs in connection therewith, I do not consider that $125 is at all out of the
way.    As a matter of fact it should be much larger.
Now, I have given you the time which you have asked for in order to consult the
Attorney-General, and as you know the position in which I am standing, I shall have to insist
on the money being sent down by return mail. This is the amount of the fines together with
$125 costs.    Kindly do not neglect this matter, and oblige,
Yours truly,

defendant for having failed to comply with the provisions of section 20 of the "Magistrate's
Act," chapter 78 of the Consolidated Acts of British Columbia, 1888, in that the defendant
neglected to make the return in writing under his hand to the Pi-ovincial Secretary, as required
by the said section 20, for the quarter ending in the month of September, 1894, of a certain
conviction made at Union Mines, in the Province of British Columbia, against one Nun Oy on

Andrew McKnight, Esq.,
Union Mines.
Dear Sir,—I am in receipt of your favour by the last boat regarding a settlement of the
claim which I have against you, and after further consideration, and taking into consideration
the manner in which you have acted, I have made up my mind that you are not at all anxious
to take advantage of the chances which I have given you, and what you desire is either that I
should obtain all that I am entitled to or nothing at all. That places me in a very simple,
position, that is to issue an execution against you, in which case it will cost you $480, as the
full claim will then have to be settled ; or, on the other hand, to allow you to remit to me by
return mail the sum of $240, in consideration of which I will agree not to press you for the
balance until the Crown shall demand the same. There is no use of any further delay in the
matter, or of any further parley, for I can assure you that unless the money is down here by
the next boat that I shall send the Sheriff up next week, when your immediate settlement of
the full amount is all that I shall accept. You will kindly attend to this without fail, as I do
not wish to have any further correspondence or trouble in the matter, but I propose to have a
settlement on the basis which 1 have laid down to you, and that alone. And, possibly, in
future, when an Attorney tries to give you a chance to lessen your liability, you will accept it
with better grace, and throw less obstacles in the way of a settlement, than you have in the
present case.
Yours truly,
(Signed)        H. A. Simpson.
P.S.—Unless I receive $240, the executions go up next boat.—H. A. S.
Extract from a letter from M. Bray (of December 18th, 1894) 1° Attorney-General.
Now the five cases against the Justices at Union, namely :—
Nun Oy vs. A. W. McKnight,
Yee'Kim vs. A. W. McKnight,
Nun Oy vs. W. R. Walker,
Yee Kim vs. W. R. Walker, and
Nun Oy vs. R. Grant,
for $200 each, under section 20 of the said " Magistrates Act," the above-named suits entered
in the County Court by H. A. Simpson, the solicitor for the above-named plaintiffs, and the
said solicitor entered up judgment  against  each  of  the above-named  plaintiffs for $200 and
$19.40 costs in each case.    I sent  you copies of these  plaints at your request on the 5th of
October last.
Enclosed I forward you copies of H. A. Simpson's receipt to A. W. McKnight in settlement of these suits as far as he is concerned. He received $450 for such settlement, and no
entry has been made in the County Court Record Book of same.
Now these seven suits the Government should receive $700 as their moiety of same, or
such moiety as the Judge may consent to as a settlement. I also enclose, annexed to
Simpson's receipt, his letters in reference to the said settlement, which I received from Mr.
McKnight. Please to take care of these, as I promised McKnight to take care of them for
him.
Now I wish to know how I shall proceed in these matters, for it is not right that these
parties should bring these actions against the Justices, and then either withdraw them or
settle them in 'the manner in which the solicitors in these cases have done. If you think there
is a case against them under section 155 of the Code, and you wish me to lay information
against them, please to draw out the informations and I will attend to the matter.
Please answer as soon as possible. 59 Vict.       Actions against Messrs. Grant, Walker, McKnight, J. P's. 1001

Nanaimo, 13th October, 1894.
Received from Andrew McKnight the sum of four hundred and fifty dollars, being a
settlement of the suits of Yee Kim against Andrew McKnight and William R. Walker, and
also of the suit of Nun Oy against Robert Grant, Andrew McKnight, and William R. Walker,
so far as to any money coming to them under the penalty sued for and the costs of suit. This
has nothing to do with the portion to which the Government is entitled to of the penalty sued
for, it being understood that the claim will not be insisted upon.

On a memorandum from the Honourable the Attorney-General dated the 9th day of
October, 1894, calling attention to certain prosecutions which had been instituted against a
Chinaman and Chinawoman in the District of Comox, and to certain convictions thereunder
by Messrs. Andrew McKnight, Wm. R. Walker and Robert Grant, Justices of the Peace, on
the 10th and 11th days of June last, whereby one Yee Kim and one Nun Oy were adjudged
to forfeit and pay a penalty of $50.00 each.
The Minister further reports that the facts appear to show that the convictions cannot be
sustained in law for the reason that one of the defendants was tried on a Sunday, and that
there were no informations laid and no written convictions made or evidence taken down in
writing.
The Minister therefore recommends that, under the authority conferred by section 47 of
the "Revenue Act," the several penalties above mentioned be remitted and refunded to the
parties paying them.
The Committee advise approval of the recommendation.
