 59 Vict.      Auditors' Reports—Accounts of Prevost and Falding. 865
RETURN
To an Order of the House for a Return of the reports of the Provincial Auditors in
reference to the accounts of W. H. Falding and James Charles Prevost.
Attorney - G ener al's Office,
February 25th, 1896.
D. M. EBERTS,
A ttorney- General.
Victoria, B. C, 14th Sept., 1895.
Sir,—In obedience to instructions contained in your letter of the 19th ult. I have the
honour to state that I have made an audit of the Court books of the Registrar of the Supreme
Court in this city, and herewith enclose my detailed report (and four copies) on same.
Accompanying the. report will be found the balance sheet, which shows credits to the
amount of $26,340.65.
Deducting from this amount the sum of $2,744.50 at present in the Provincial Treasury,
there appears to be a shortage of $23,596.15.
The debit side of the balance sheet, which is nrore particularly referred to in the report,
will show to what purposes the funds which should be on hand to provide for the above credits
have been diverted.
I have, &c,
(Signed)        W. J. Goepel,
Auditor.

Victoria, B. C.
Auditor's Report of the Court Books of the Registrar of the Supreme
Court, Victoria, B. C.
Tisset Estate.
Ledger folio 113. Debit balance, $34.58.
Mr. J. C. Prevost was" administrator of this estate. The amount standing at debit
represents taxes paid for the years 1893 and 1894, supposed to be for mortgages existing in
favour of the estate, although after diligent search no mortgages are found to exist, nor did
exist during those years. There is at present on deposit in the Savings Bank Department of
the Bank of British Columbia upwards of $6,000 in favour of the above estate.
Moriarty Estate.
Ledger folio 114. Debit balance, $308.53.
Mr. Prevost, as Registrar, had charge of all moneys coming into Court from time to time
on account of this estate. The amount at debtor represents various items of interest received
from the Registrar on account of a mortgage held by him in favour of the estate, and paid to
Senator Macdonald, agent for W. Moriarty, but which items of interest he had omitted to
credit the account with, The estate is now out of his hands, and the accounts should therefore
have been closed, 866 Auditors' Reports—Accounts of Prevost and Falding. 1896
Bank of British Columbia.
Ledger folio 118. Debit balance, $2,744.50.
This amount represents all moneys at the credit of the Registrar of the Supreme  Court
on the 20th August, 1895.    The sum has since been transferred to the Treasury.
Jaynes Estate.
Ledger folio 136. Debit balance, $315.05.
This amount represents interest on account of a mortgage held by the Registrar in favour
of the estate, paid to Mrs. Jaynes. The mortgage, $1,500, is still in existence, and is in the
Registrar's vault. The account, however, should be closed, as Mr. Prevost has omitted to
credit the same with interest received from the Mortgagor, Henry Cogan.
Machin Estate.
Ledger folio 136. Debit balance, $3.35.
This amount was paid out by the Registrar for taxes on a mortgage of $1,000 in 1894,
which mortgage had been paid off four years before. In any event this amount should have
been paid out of his private account.
Reg. v.   Wo Kum and George (Indians).
Ledger foilo 136. Debit balance,
This was an amount of bail deposited with the Registrar, as so ordered in the Police
Court abiding their trial. The accused were fined $15 each at the Assizes in November,
1894. Mr. Prevost instead of giving them back the deposited money, less the fine of $30,
gave them a cheque for $470 on the Supreme Court funds, omitting at the same time to give
the account credit for the $500 he had in the vault.
Nicola Mining Company.
Ledger folio 137. Debit balance, $1,062.46.
This account should have long since been closed, as the Registrar had moneys in his
private account to offset this balance. The account has evidently been mixed up with the
estate of Marks, Rutledge & Co., principal owners in the Nicola Mining Company, as that
estate, of which Mr. Prevost was also Receiver, shows a credit balance in his estate books.
Sadler v. Sandover.
Ledger folio 139. Debit balance, $249.12.
This was an amount paid to one of the plaintiffs' solicitor on September 24th, 1887. Mr.
Prevost had the money in hand to pay this sum, as can be seen by a Supreme Court Order,
dated 22nd September, 1887, but there is no credit entry for the same.
Re Reid.
Ledger folio 140. Debit balance, $1.
This was an amount overpaid the Treasury on October 29th, 1890, and should have been
refunded, 59 Vi< t.      Auditors' Reports—Accounts of Prevost and Falding. 867
Johnston Estate.
Ledger folio 146. Debit balance, $1.
This represents an over-payment by the Registrar on account of this estate.
Beaconsfield Admiralty Case.
Ledger folio 155. Debit balance, $4,963.32.
During the year 1887 Mr. Prevost received upwards of $9,000 paid to him as Receiver in
the above cause, and which amount did not pass through the Court books. The items
amounting to $4,963.32 paid out between October, L892, and September, 1893, should have
been paid out of his own funds.
John  Hirst, Deceased.
Ledger folio, 156. Debit balance, $1,066.43.
This amount made up of various items, principally solicitor's costs, should have been paid
out of Prevost's private funds in his capacity as Receiver of the Hirst Estate, and was so
ordered by the Supreme Court, as he owed the estate, according to the last accounts made up,
upwards of $10,000.
Leigh Estate.
Ledger folio 160. Debit balance, $1,565.08.
This amount, representing part of the net proceeds from the sale of real estate paid to
Prevost as Administrator or Receiver, should have been paid out of his private funds, there
being no entry of such realizations in the Court books.
Bank of B.  C. v.   Vancouver Sealing Co.
Ledger folio 160. Debit balance, $4,900.
Three items, amounting to $4,900, were paid out of the Supreme Court funds on account
of this cause. The amount should have been paid out of Prevost's private funds, as he had
already received through that channel $5,102 for that purpose. In this cause Prevost was
appointed Receiver without bonds, his Receivership being guaranteed by the Bank of British
Columbia, as can be seen from the Supreme Court Order made in 1893 in the above cause.
d.  C.  Prevost.
Ledger folio 162. Debit balance, $7,657.04.
This amount represents money taken by Prevost for his own use. The principal items
are cheques drawn in favour of the Provincial Treasury to pay either moneys due on his
monthly account, which were never passed through the Court Books, or moneys due the
Treasury for advances on account of Assize expenses, witness, jurors' fees, &c, which advances
invariably passed through his private account. There is one item also in 1893 of $1,000,
repayment of a mortgage in favour of the Tisset estate to Prevost, which he failed to account
for.    The principal items are shown as below—
March 21st, 1893.—Repayment of Tisset  mortgage, Ellison to
Prevost   $1,000 00
October 20th, 1894.—Payment to Treasury      1,013 25
26th,    i, „ „              1,580 18
As at August 20th, 1895.—Two cheques drawn for commission
on the McNeill estate, not allowed         342 65
August 20th, 1895.— Payment to Treasury         681 96
The balance is made up of various items drawn for his private use, and which are very
hard to trace as to what became of them. Auditors' Reports—Accounts of Prevost and Falding.
1896
William Brotchie Estate.
Folio 164.
Debit balance, $824.
This item paid out by Prevost on account of the above estate in January, 1895, should
have been paid out of his private funds, as the moneys belonging to the estate had already
passed through that channel.
Cash
Hand.
Ledger folio 164.
Debit balance, $145.19.
This represents the amount in cash there should have been on hand on August 20th,
1895. Diligent search, however, has failed to find any cash in the Supreme Court Registrar's
Office.
Erorn the foregoing it will be seen that after taking into consideration the money now in
the Treasury, amounting to $2,744.50 on account of the Registrar of the Supreme Court, there
appears to be a shortage of $23,596.15, and which amount must be charged to J. C. Prevost,
the late Registrar.
As regards the liabilities, $26,340.65, which Prevost would have been able to pay but for
the above shortage, there is very little to say. The moneys representing estates have been
paid into Court under Supreme Court Orders, except in the case of the Rhodes estate,
$1,460.35, respecting which I am unable to find any Order, but this account has been carried
on the Court books for upwards of fifteen years. The "security for costs" account aggregates
a total sum of $2,000, of which I append a detailed statement showing in what causes the
various items are held.

Auditor's   Report   on  the  Office   of the   Registrar   of the   Supreme and
County Courts of New Westminster, W. H. Falding, Registrar.
Audit Office, Victoria, September 9th, 1895.
Hon. D. M. Eberts,
A Homey-General :
Sin,—I hayg'the honour to inform you that I have made an audit of the accounts of W.
H. Raiding, i;. connection with his office as Registrar of the Supreme and County Courts of
New Wesfcmin.stefTand report as follows :—
That so far as I could determine, after an examination occupying a period of seven days,
from the 24th to the 31st of August, I may express the opinion generally that up to October,
1893, there appeared to be a desire to keep the accounts in such a manner as would admit of
an easy audit, but since that date carelessness on his part is quite apparent. No entry has
been made in the ledger account with the bank since October 19th, 1893. I had, therefore, to
write up the account and compare it with the entries in the bank pass books, so that the same
balances could be struck in the office ledger as are shown by the bank.    This was done.
I found considerable difficulty in tracing some payments in, as against tin? payments out.
There was a lack of system in not making the proper entry in the cash book of all payments in
or out./ Although it appeared to be   the general rule to pass  cash  transactions through the
cash book, yet there were several  instances of payments in, of  Court  funds, which were not
1-tJaceti in  the  cash  book, but  directly  deposited  in  bank,  either  to  the  " Supreme Courfu
Account,"  " County Court Account," or to " W. H. Falding's Private Account."    Of  th.e last
mentioned he had two divisions  in  the Bank of  Montreal—one  on current account and the
other in the Savings Department, thus making four bank accounts. ~ From the in-regular mode
of Mr. Falding depositing Court funds to the credit of his private account, an«i paying out part
«">f said funds on his private cheque, making transfers of  a portion of deports from his private
account to th» Government account, and drawing therefrom, not only  eVreques in payment of
suitor's claims but also for his own use, it clearly indicates that in thuWxercising his authority
it was either f^n unconscious error or a disregard of the ordinary rule in respect to the banking
of trust ftind.s.
The. rcietails of the transactions are as follows :—
Rowland vs. Hobson (Supreme Court).
1891, Nov.—Amount paid in, $250, not entered in cash book. Against this sum cheques
were drawn out on Mr. Falding's Private Account in December, 1893, $150, and January, 1894,
$100, thus closing the transaction.
Gillis vs. Gillis (Supreme Court).
1893,  1—Amount paid in (date not given) $1,550.    No entry of this appears in the
cash book, but the full amount was deposited on the 21st December, 1893, to the credit of Mr.
Falding's Private Account. This sum was drawn out on the following day and deposited in the
County Court Account, and cheques drawn against the sum to the order of the following :—
1894, Jan. 24.—Beck $ 25 00
„        „    29.—Forin  789  63

Re Pickard (Supreme Court).
1894, April. —Amount paid in, $1,750. No entry of this appears in the cash book, but
there was a record of it in a small memorandum book, The whole amount was paid out by
cheques to various parties. 872 Auditors' Reports—Accounts of Prevost ANj) Falding. 1896
In re Montgomery (Supreme Court).
1894, Sept.—Mr. Falding was appointed Receiver for the proceeds of 16 shares in the

amount was paid out by cheque in October, 1894.
Grant vs. Keefer (Supreme Court).
1894, Sept.—Amount paid in, $3,399.46; and the whole sum deposited to the credit of
Falding's Private Account, against which cheques were drawn as follows-^-

Rithet vs. Lee Coy (Supreme Court).
1895, April 13.- -Amount paid in, $800. No entry of this appears in the casn book. The
amount was deposited to the credit of the County Court Account on the same day, and fully
paid out by cheque Mav 6th, 1895.
-y    Major vis. Dupont (Supreme Court).
1895, 1—Amount paid in by various persons on .xcount of partition of lands, $I5A107.
No entry of this appears in the cash book, but a record was found in a memorandum book.
This sum was deposited on April 22nd, 1895, in the Savings Bank of Montreal, New Westminster, and with the exception of $3.77 was drawn'by Falding and deposited to the credit of
his private account in the Bank of Montreal, New Westminster, against which there was paid
out to various persons a sum amounting to $571.15. There is therefore a balance of $20.92
due this cause.
In re Estate of Isaac dohns (Supreme Court).
1895, .—On the 1st of February, 1895, an Order of the Court issued appointing the
Deputy Registrar, J. J. Cambridge, a guardian to the infant children, re Estate of Isaac Johns,
and authorizing the payment to him of the balance of the moneys then in Court, the amount
stated at $389.39. This sum Mr. Falding should have paid to Mr. Cambridge at once, but
instead of doing so paid only a portion, namely, $125 on February 9th, 1895, and $150 on the
27th of June, 1895, leaving a balance of $114.39 still due to Mr. Cambridge.
On the 21st of August, 1895, a further sum of $1,100 (being the proceeds of a matured
mortgage) due the Estate of Isaac Johns, was paid into Court. No Order of the Court was
made for the disposition of this money. On the same date Falding deposited the $1,100 in
the Bank of British Columbia to the credit of the Supreme Court Account, and on the following
day (August 22nd) drew the same on two cheques, one for $563.27 in favour of himself, which
the bank cashed at the time, and he did not account for it; the other was in favour of the
Minister of Finance for $536.73, which the bank marked " Accepted." This cheque has not
been received at the Treasury, nor has Falding advised the Department that such a cheque had
been drawn. The Supreme Court Account was debited by the bank on the 22nd of August,
1895, with the amount of both cheques — $1,100. .The accepted cheque, $536.73, had not, up
to the date of the 7th of September, been presented at the bank for payment, but the Manager 59 Vict.     Auditors' Reports—Accounts of Prevost and Falding. 873
informed me that the bank would have to pay it on demand, provided that no alterations had
been made rendering it questionable as to the holder of it having innocently obtained possess-
sion. This sum of $1,100, together with $114.39, in all amounting to $1,214.39, is due to the
Estate of Isaac Johns.
Regina vs. Bucknell re Lee (County Court).
1894, Aug. 1.—Stolen money recovered, $30. No entry of this appears in the cash book.
The amount was paid out by cheque to J. H. Shirley, 10th June, 1895.
Fagan vs. Ching Nye & Jim (County Court).
1894, Sept.—Amount paid in by the Delta Municipality, fine and costs, on appeal, $115.
No entry of this appears in the cash book. Against this sum there were payments made by
cheque as follows :—
April, 1895.—McColl $12 50
ii ii Gaynor    25 00
,,         12 50
May       „ n    12 30
$62 30
Leaving a balance of $52.70 due to this cause.
Byrne vs. Rowland (County Court).
1895, Jan. 5.—Amount paid by Sheriff, $183.52. No entry of this appears in the cash
book. Against this sum there were paid out in two cheques $183.32, leaving a balance of 20
cents due to this cause.
Wiggins vs. Rowland (County Court).
1894, Jan. 5.—Amount paid in by Sheriff, $100.64. No entry of this in the cash book-
The full amount was paid out by cheque.
Leek & Desrosiers vs. Cook (County Court).
1895, March 18.—Amount paid in by Messrs. Davis, Marshall & Macneill, $433. A.
memo in pencil appeared in the cash book as a record in this matter. The full amount was
deposited in bank May 6th, 1895, but no payment out has been made. This sum ($433.00)
is therefore clue to the cause.
Mills vs. Cosens (County Court).
1895, June 26.—Amount paid in by H. F. Clinton, $75.00, not entered in cash book.
No payment out has been made by cheque, nor any evidence of it having been paid in cash.
The amount ($75.00) is therefore due to this cause.
McCorrie vs. Bonson (County Court), garnishee order.
1895, July.—Amount paid in, $140.00, not entered in cash book. Against this sum
there was paid out by cheque July 25th, 1895, $128.00, leaving a balance of $12.00 due to
Sheriff for poundage.    This sum ($12.00) is therefore due to this cause.
The following sums have been received by  Mr. Falding, and appear in the County
Court Books  to  the credit  of  the  undermentioned causes ; and as no

Moneys   received   by   W.   H.   Falding,   irrespective   of   Court   Trust   Funds,   not
accounted for by him.
Probate Duty.—In re Kilroy Estate, $308.70.
Note explanatory.—The Probate Duty in the Kilroy Estate was $1,499.70, on account of
which $1,100 was paid by Mr. Gaynor and duly accounted for by Mr. Falding, thus leaving
a balance of $399.70 due to the Government by Mr. Gaynor as Solicitor for the Estate. On
making full enquiry into the matter from Mr. Gaynor, I ascertained that Mr. Falding had
been appointed receiver of certain rents in the cause of Rithet v. Lee Coy, and the sum paid
in to Falding between the 23rd May, 1894, and May, 1895, amounted to $360.00, on which
he, Falding, was entitled to charge a commission of 10 per cent.—$36.00—which, with other
charges paid out by Falding, $15.30, together amounted to $51.30, were to be deducted from
the $360.00, leaving a balance of $308.70. This sum was due to Mr. Rithet, but as Messrs.
Eckstein & Gaynor, solicitors, had a taxed bill of costs against this cause, for some $400, Mr.
Falding, by arrangement with Mr. Gaynor, assigned to Gaynor the above amount of $308.70
towards the balance he, Gaynor, owed on probate duty in the Kilroy Estate ; but Mr. Falding did not enter the same to the credit of the Government in his collector's cash book, nor
has it in any way been accounted for to the Treasury.
Probate Duty.—In re Parsons. Amount received on the 10th
July, 1895, and entered on that date in Collector's cash book,
but not paid in to the Treasury    $    6 25
Fines.—Lem Lock, et al. Amount received on the 9th of August, 1895, and entered on that date in Collector's cash book,
but not paid in to the Treasury        35 00
Miscellaneous —Amount received on various dates for fees on
registrations of partnerships, under the " Partnership Act,
1894," 66 @ $1        66 00
Law Stamps.—Amount due to the Government Agent, C. Warwick, for law stamps which he, Warwick, has accounted for
to the Treasury, but holds for the same Falding's LO.Us. . .     443 75

Total amount short $2,528 80
Note.—Besides the above I. O. U. there were others as follows, but  I did   not  consider
them available assets, viz.:—
J. W. McColl, 21st September, 1894, $ 7.80, very doubtful.
J. C. Dockerill, n 12.00, could not ascertain value.
A. S. Black, 27th July, 1892, 1.00, bad.
A. M. Herring, 27th April, 1895, 16.00, disputed, contra account.
From the foregoing it may be seen that an audit made under circumstances of no entries
in some instances is a difficult one on which to positively determine what amount may be
short. I, therefore, give the above figures as nearly correct as it was possible to arrive at
from the data afforded.
Respectfully submitted.
J. McB. Smith,
Auditor-General.
