The fact that rgt. Haslett in s.-ndmg Martin to lie sporting bouses to see that a isturbimce was not. created admiLs lie possibility of others committing he crime. Recently such a crime had een committ.d .right in the town pj "rank and criminal-was. not caught. Vhirtiti saw .tw.o other men coming roni the direction of Mouty' Lewis hey were t.he nearest so far the evi- lence shows, to the house when the murder was committed1. Another mai Mine to Ethel Williams while he whs here and left hurriedly. Who were hese men? The constable knew "onlj There is no evidence to show hat Mali Sing was not at the house it eleven o'clock. This-is not to in licate who did the deed but to show hat it was quite possible for anyone iround Frank to have committed tlv crime.. Thc motive of -the crime was eithe robebry or revenge. There is no posi live evidence that there- any thing to rob, and if robbery were th motive the bracelet would have been ;akcn. The woman never depositc more than at a time and it is evi :lont that she was supporting som sporting man or she would have hin more money. Mike Phillips is a hard working man, with a record at th mine of 65 days of 68 days. He wa. not looking for e.asy money. He wen to the house to spend. He had n motive for revenge. He did not writ the ieiters Monty received threaten ing her. His .conduct points him out as a innocent man. Pelesky says ho foua hini asleep in the shack on Wedne day morning. Although the inques was boing held that day he wen about the town fearlessly drinking the hotels with Synko. To draw his rrmney would .not have been more dan- gerous for him than to go about as he did. When he was away, learning o' the awful charge laid against him, he could not bo expectod to return. He told a story to 'his wife and the old man but there, is not a married, man in Alberta but has 10 lie some-: Limes to square himself with his wife, and if he. must hang for his infelicity then the race of married men would soon- be extinct. The Crown promised to bring" Mike up to 7 p.m. Tuesday at. Monty Lewis' but if they did, .that does not ay he killed Monty Lewis after elev- n o'clock. He was' there Saturday, here is no evidence that he was any- here but at a christening on Sunday, in Monday night, Segt. Haslett says e was too drunk to give evidence i the court and had a moustache- "he Chinaman says the man at Mon- y's was sober.and had no moustache. ie arranged with Pelesky for the hack that evening. Mali Sing says he same man was at Monty's on uesday at ;-ix o'clock, while Mr. ,ang swears Mike was in his store jetween ten to six and five after. Mr. l.ang boing r-ntirely disinterested must-be believed. Monty told Carson 'laughingly" that the uian in the room Tuesday evening was "Harry' xnt! this is very material especially 'is she told him he had'been there al lay.' Synko saw Mike down town K'tween 5 and 7 and had a talk with lim. Allowing for Mike to walk from Monty's to Frank, do what lie is shown to have done and returned would have taken JIH hour and five uimites of the two hours between 5 ind 7 ho is supposed to be at thc louse. The fact that the Chinaman went to get cigars is evidence they were not for Mike as lie had just tobacco and cigarette papers. Men of his stamp do not smoke ci- gars. Mr. Lang says he won- an im- itation Persian lamb cap while Sel- lers says the man had a black fedora hat. The former had his eye on a man buying goods on credit while the latter says he did not look closely at hini.. The man at Monty Ltwis' could not have been Maxiric Pylypxuk, and even if-it was; then} is'rio proof that lie committed "the1, deed later. Mr. Macleod spoke exactly an hour. The charge of.
