Mr. Hansen's case rests on the .ques- tion as to whether the aoWier 'was drunk or not, and the entire morning was occupied in argument both pro and con. No sooner would one wit- ness swear that he was drunk, than the court would reverberate with evi- dence which went to show that he was sober. Corporal McKay testified that the gunner was, according to the military idea, drunk. But there was a differ- ence between the military and civil meaning of the word. Under military discipline, a man is either sober or drunk, but the civilian construction is different. Looking at it from a civil- ian's standpoint, the gunner was merely Intoxicated, hut the Corporal on Page igainst the measures taken by Eng- enlisted, has been wounded at the linfl in violation m" international law fronl- He wenL with the Princess to stop neutral sea commerce with Pats- and his name appeared in the i_ i i CLIJUWi iuii H.I.I..I uu >.itw [Jj- Calgary, from which place channel at daybreak, with the ed Stars and Stripes still flying.
