CASES AT FERNIE (Special to th? lloraliD Fernie. Apr. 11.-The Michel cases, arising out of a raid made on the night of Feb. 23. at Michel; when the house ot an Italian, named Ennacra, was raided by the provincfat police in search of liquor, came before Hie Honor Judge Thomson, in the county, court here today for trial. The first case, that accusing Erma-cra. with having liquor in his keeping in a boarding house, contrary to the prohibition act, was taken up and still occupies the attention of the court. F. C. Lawe, representing the accused, objected to the wording of the information, and the point as to whether the word having or. the word keeping should be used in this connection, came up. An adjournment of a few minutes was taken during which His Honor took the matter under advisement, but when he returned to the court room, he stated that he had still some doubts, and would adjourn court until two o'clock, at which time the crown prosecutor, Mr. A., Macneill elected to 'have the word keeping used in the case as applied to the accused in the charge, and the case proceeded again. After the evidence for the crown was put in. Mr. La we raised several objections, as to evidence, etc., but the court overruled most of them excepting that referring to the lack of proof that the substance contained in several bottles which had been put in as exhibits was intoxicating liquor. This point was left undecided when court adjourned until ten o'clock tomorrow morning. Several other men who were found in the raided house, are under arrest, charged with resisting an officer of the law and with assault. These men will come up for trial.after the liquor case has been disposed of. Amateur JJlay . . The Knox church dramatic society scored another success last night when they reproduced "What Happened to Jones." a comedy which they put on the hoards for the benefit of Knox elmrch a few wjeek* ago, and which drew a capacity house. The play was a decided "hit," and it was decided to reproduce it for the benefit of tho Great War Veterans' association. Another large audience turned out to see the play the second.time and it went with a smoothness that brought much praise from the audience. Lieutenant YV. .1. Claridge, preHident of the Veterans, in a very modest little speech, expressed the thanks of the returned soldier* to the Dramatic Society and to"the Fe'rnte people for the very generous patronage, extended for their benefit. The entertainment netted the Great War Veterans over a hundred dollars, which will be expended in maintaining and further decorating then" new club rooms, over the 41 Market. TAKE RUftS.
