Monty i was seen by them that afternoon, also. Phillips wore gray clothes and a fe- dora hat. The question of the hat arose from the fact that when arrest- ed he was wearing imitation fur cap which no witness yet has identified as being worn by him pre- vious to the murder.

When she left on November 5th, 'having returned from Coleman to get her effects, she paid Monty twenty dollars. Monty had about two hundred dollars then and generally deposited her -money in the bank. She told counsel for defence that she knew the man Green who' was a frequent visitor and had some times know that he was Monty's ODO OD meals there.

Today the Crown established the fact that had been at the house on Monday night and practically all day Tuesday up until seven o'clock Tuesday even: ing. The most damaging evidence was that of Mali.

The Prisorief-s Finances Gustavus Roxford, secretary-treas- urer of the Canadian-American Coal and Coke Co., of Frank gave evidence as to Mike's finances. He started working at the mines on Aug. 16, and up to Nov. 16 had missed only four days. On that date he drew his wages for October. In November he had worked every day, fourteen days, and had less deductions of coining to him. This was his back-pay and no demand had been made for it until Mr. Macleod, coun- sel for the defense, had presented an order signed by Phillips on Feb. 6, the day of the preliminary trial. John Jacobia, a Frank miner, told of selling the prisoner a stove, a bed, your and magazines.
