Yenney, of Ray- mond, concluded yesterday, the pris- j oner being found guilty and allowed out.on suspended sentence. The morning, as reported in our last issue, was spent in examining and cross-examining witnesses. Mr. Lethbridge, auditor of the A. R. I. Co. arid. Mr. Green called as it af- terwards appeared, by His Honor, on account of Mr. Green's evidence put- ting the accused in a favorable light. Mr. Lethbridge, speaking on behalf of the company, said that Mr. Yenny had been employed by them for the past twenty-two years and during part of that time had acted as agent, for the company at Raymond. Not a breath of suspicion had ever rested upon Mr. Yenny and the Com- pany had always considered him a valued and trustworthy servant- In fact Mr. Lethbridge would go so far as to say that Yenny was the best agent the company had employed. After an adjournment for the lun- cheon hour Judge Winter again took his place on the bench when C. Simmons presented the case 1'vr the defence. Mr. Simmons spoke for nearly an hour and said that in his opinion tho whole reduced itself to a case of one man's word against another's. He further stated, that he did not believe it possible that a man of Mr. Thompson's loose business habits could be expected to remember what had become of every dollar of his in- come: he keeping no cash book, hav- away and receiving it in a uiost in- discriminate manner. Mr. Simrm.ns then made a strong point means of contrast when hi; roir.arkod dence that he did and demanding re- dress, they could do no better than bring action against defendant. At this point Mr. Simmons arose and said that if Mr. Conybeare would tell His Honor who he (Sir. Cony- beare) had come to represent, no doubt the court would understand his attitude. Mi-. Conybeare at once replied, "I am here ou behalf of the Attorney General." Mr. Conybeare, then continuing, said that he felt that the most con- demning part of the evidence was to be found in two exhibits each purporting to be carbon paper copies 01 ihc oth- er, but which, could be plainly seen to be separate copies of bills No. 1 and that Yenny had said in his evi- dence that he had placed the original exhibit school, distributed the gifts to the onal Christmas business dur- i i r-u t 1 scholars irom the Chrtstmns trees. ing the pas trouble has been brewing for a lor.jj time and came, to a head today when Mr. Justice Russell who was practicing at Chambers, said: "I de- cline to act both as judge and sten- ographer."
