Justice Martin, was opened at 11 o'clock this morn- ing m the Fernie opera house, which has been fitted up for the purposes of the court. The city is full of people from all parts of the district who are here in connection with the assizes. The hotels are full to overflowing, and the crowd of litigants. lawyers and court officials, ad-ded to the us- ual crowd of workers and business men, makes the town Ipok like a prosperous, busy bee-hive. The court was opened with prompt- ness, all jurors, both grand and pet- it- being present. W. A. .Maotlonald. K.C.; S. S. Taylor K.C., both late of Nelson, now of Vancouver, jtnd A.

It was a -day of testimony for the defence during which Mi-.

Howard Gould, may mseli take the stand' tomorrow, in the midst of, testimony relating to Mrs. Gould's alleged inebriation, her lawyer, Clarence J. Shearn. who had objected strenuously at first to the treai-d of testimony but was over- ruled, interjected iuto the case the rather novel argument that admitt- ing even that .his client had been in- toxicated, this should have strength- ened rather than weakened the ties between, wife and husband.
