The first case taken was th at of tbe
Queen against one Auguttine\Belgrave
for having on Sunday ihe 14ih of
October last, on the Eeperama Estate,
Couva, killed and murdered one Idah,
an indauiured coolie.
The prisoner pleaded not guilty.
FSjThe Hon, N. Nathan, Q, O. Attorney
General, prosecuted for the Crown;
and Mr. J F A Farfan, instructed by
Mr A V M Thavenot defended the
prisoner.
The following jury was sworn, there
being no challenges Messrs. Leon

In the course of hia opening ad address

eral General said the charge was one wbicb,
as was most generally the case with
murders, (except in a few cases of
coolie wile murder), rested almost
entirely upon circumstantial evi evidence.
dence. evidence. This would necessitate his
calling a largo number of witnesses
to prove the various points, which
would, be submitted, taken alt to together,
gether, together, form such a chain of evidence
as would lead to no other conclusion
than that the prisoner must be
guilty of tbe orime charged, The
prisoner was a Creolo biack man
named Beigrave, also lmown under
the alias cf 11 Doctor And the mur murdered
dered murdered man was an Indian labourer
on tbe ‘'Bevilla” estate, named ldah
Some four or five weeks prior to the
murder, the prisoner was tho victim
cf a rather sovern beating from a
number of oooiies with whom he bad

this beating, prisoner made certain

perscus, to boat bis assailants when
he got the ohunno. Home days alter,
ho did iu fact assault and beat one
of the Indians who had formed one of

There was no evidence of any eye eyewitness

tbe deceased ; bat of tbe fact that
ldah, (ouu ot tho former assailants
of the ortsoTOßv)- was beaten on the
night ol (Sunday tbe 14th of October,
there cf.uld bo no doubt; for he was
found In a semi-unoonseteua con condition
dition condition lying on tbe ground outside
his room door And a quantity of
blood was found on tbe clothes of
the prisoner when he was shortly
afterwards arrested for the assault
upon Idah Tho medical evidence
would show that ldah had died from
the efiects of the injuries to the brain
caused most probably by blows
From tbe faot of the previous quarrel
and threats, from the blood on
prisoner’s olothea, and from the other
incidents which would be deposed
to by the witnesses, the Attorney-
General would oentend that there
was evidence io justify a conviotiou.
Os courso, it was purely a question
for tbo jury The Grown had to
satisfy ihe jury of the strength of
their case ; and if they considered

he had failed to do so, it would be
their duty to aoquit the prisoner
jf|Evidpnce was tbfn called
Dr J B Joseph DMO deposed to
having examined Ih3 cfeaicsod on
tho day in question and attributed
death to ba due to an effusion of
blood on the brain, oansed by blows
on the head produced by some blunt
instrument such as a stick
There was also * contused

pucotured wound over tbe left jaw,
which might have beta caused by a
blunt or sharp instrument
Not cross-examined
Professor Oarmody was the last
witness for the proseoution, and at 10
o’oieck the court adjourned for an
hour.
At the resumption of *he court
Mr Farfan called two witnesses fortke

that the accused oouid not have been
connected with the mu:der; after
which be addressed the court on
behalf ot his client, pointing out the
discrepancies of ecme of the witnesses
The Attorney-General briefly re replied,

Ou his return to the pharmacy ou the last

he met Mr Deiflenthallci who asked him
what.he had been doing with the lights and on
his telling him, tbe latter said that it was a
very serious matter as the Electric company’s
engineers had been there. The lights
had been burning for some time before he
returned to the pharmacy. Mr Dicflenthal Dicflenthallei
lei Dicflenthallei was aware that they had been bur burning

wanted to ; after making the discovery

HOUSE.

business. He never asked DisQenlhalkr to
steal Hjfht for him ; as the phami&icy had
acetylene lamps, and there was no necessity
for more lights. A s the result of informa information
tion information received in connection with the matter
he had interviewed M> Ambard whoreferred
him to Mr Reid-; to whom he went, accom,
partied by the "experimenter.” As the
, result Mr Reid advised him to w rite a letter of
. apology to the Secretary of the Company 5
, wbicli he did explaining the whole matter,
t and was under the impression that the matter
was finished.
William Fluminar. a machinist, deposed to
having fitted up lour -acetylene gass lamps
| at the defendant’s pharmacy. It had been
previously fitted with electric lamps, and in
I consequence ot being refitted it was necessary
to remove certain ot the electric lamps to
1 another spot so as to place the acetylene
} lamps. Mi DieSenthaller had nothing to do
with the fixing or removal of the electric
: lamps, nor was he (witness) ordered
to remove them to where they now
stood. He was not aware at the time he
removed them that they were placed there for
the purpose of concealing them from view|
and lor the purpose of lighting elsewhere.
‘ Edward Sullivan, another machinist who
assisted the last witness in the installation of
the acetylene lamps at the defendant’s
pharmacy, gave similar evidence.
1 George McCarthy, an employee of the
1 defendant was next examined : The witness
1 Albeit Joseph had told him of his intended
â–  experiment on the evening ol the 20th ultimo,
but be had not paid any attention to him.
He did not know that the lights were burning
! until the company’s engineers came to the
pharmacy. He saw the witness Joseph
return lio ihe pharmacy later on the same
evening and saw him put out the lights The
lights were not put out before the engineers
left He did not know that the lights were
used during the month.
M r George Dieflcnthallcr deposed—On the
evening in question he was not aware tb .t the
lights were burning until after the company s
engineers came to the pharmacy He
had never authorised the witness Joseph to
experiment with the light
Cross examined—He never told Mr Ambard
that the lights had been burning for over a
month ; he was surprised to hear that he had
said so. What he told him was that on
enquiry from the witness Joseph, tha latter
had told him that he mid experimented more
than once After questioning the witness
Joseph he had reported the cause of the
incident as immediately as possible to the
1) “ 'tors of the Company. He never told
the enginserx that ; 1 Chinese boy had been
experimenting.
This being the case for the defence. Mr
Pollard btietiy reviewed the evidence, charac*
terisingthe incident as the result of a boyish
trick, but that there was no intention to
defraud the company.
Mr Agotthii 'frew His Worship’s attention
t< the facts that the defendant had been
refused the light by Mr Ambard on behalf of
the company ; the latter bad subseqccntly
heard that the light was.being used ; had sent
for the purpose of verifying the information,
and had found the light in use. He did net
see how it was possible to reconcile these,
with the defendant’s statement that a Chinese
boy had been experimenting ; which to his
mind was a sort of 11 cock and bull story .”
The offence was not only confined to the
defendant but was practised ,by others, as
the engineers’ evidence had shown. It was
a most suspicious circumstance that the
defendant had been refused the light by the
company, and after having stated that it had
been in use for one month, now raised the
defence that a boy had been experimenting.
Hi* Worship thought it was a very serious
matter against u person in the defendant’s
position. If he could remove from his mind,
the conviction that the use of the lights was
with the defendant’s knowledge, he would be
inclined to give lnm the benefit of the doubt,
but although it might be quite true that the
witness Joseph was very smart and had been
endeavouring to experiment, the fact had
been brought home to his mind that the
defendant had a knowledge of the burning of
the lights It was the first case of the kind
which had come before him and he thought it
would be sufficient warning to others who
have committed, a similar offence, to adopt
the course which he intended,
Mr Agostini having intimated to lit* Wor Worship
ship Worship that simply a recognition of the offence
was desirable. Defendant was ordered to
conic up for judgment when called upon.

A cask was tried in the Second
Court at the Criminal Sessions yester yesterday,
day, yesterday, which not only shewed as Mr,
Justice Baynes very rightly said, " a
deplorable state of immorality in the
Island,” but which seemed to shew the
inefficiency of our existing machinery
for the punishment of such precocious
vice, .i schoolboy of perhaps 14 years
of age, while on bis way to school, met
and criminally assaulted a little school
girl of 8 years , and when yesterday
put upon his trial therefor he actu actually
ally actually pleaded, and got the little girl to
admit, that the offence was committed
not altogether without or against her
consent I Fortunately such a plea
could not avail the youthful criminal;
who was of course convicted. Then
cams the question of punishment. Mr,
Justice Baynes remarked that though
a uuw Corporal Punishment Act was
just passed, yet it gave him no power
to inflict the whipping which the boy
richly merited and which would have
been the most suitable punishment.
And yet whipping was legalized
by another Act for a more
serious offence of the same class.
This left his Honour only the choice
between the two very undesirable

I punishments of jail, (where prisoner
would probably be si ill more corrup corrupted
ted corrupted than ho was); or the Reformatory,
whore the risk was lest ho should hor horribly
ribly horribly corrupt the other children-
Assuredly, as his Honour remarked,
tiiis is a question to which the Law
Officers of the Crowu might well
direct their attention.
