No Evidence Having read the evidence for the crown, Mr.'Justice Hyndman, fails to find that there is any evidence be- yond suspicion that :a game of any kind was being played in the premises In question on that occasion.' It .would of course, ho observed, arouse' the sus- picion of any man to see- a. person under the circumstances of tho de- fendant with a large amount of money In his hands, but he contended ihat there must be Eome further evidence to. establish that ho was committing some breach of tho law, by playing at a game prohibited, by law.' before he couW be convicted., .On the crown's own ease he argued that the fact that there were certain instru- ments paraphernalia which might nsod for card playing, but also might be used for other lawful objects, that thero was no evidence whatever to establish that sames ot any kind being played at the time in ques- tion. The assertion that fan-tan Tras being played was'not justified or, most, pnly suspicion waa aroused.
