In the police court this morn
ing John R ml in was on trial on
the Becoud charge of having opium
in possession. His attorneys,
Moesrs. Robortsou aud Ballou,
raised tho point that his conviction
on tho first trial acted as a plea in
bar to the second. Mr. Ballou
showed from the evidence given
iti thu wthr cjcu Radin hud gono .
to tho stables with two sacks, ono
containing 00 aud tho othor 30
tins of opium. Tho smaller one
had boon placed under tho Ohina
mau'B bed nnd tho larger takon to
the Bteamor J. A. Cummins and
delivered to tho mato. Tho de
fendant had been tried and found
guilty of the possession of the
opium uudor tho bod. Now
it was sought by the prose
cution to find him guilty of the
possession of tho second lot do
livurod at tho r.tcnmnr aa n separ
ate nnd distinct oitenso. This, I
Mr. Ballou ir.iuutainod, could m.
be done. The dofuuduut had bt "U
found guilty of having opium in
possession ou a certain date. This
finding of tho Court included all
tho opium in his possession on
that dato and it could not be se
gregated to suit tho viows of tho
prosecution. If tho defendant
had boen charged with tho pos
session of a certain specified ioi
of opium at a specified time and
placo nnd tho opium had boon
brought into Court and specifical
ly identified tho caso might be
different. But tho defendant had
boen merely charged in a conoral
way with opium iu possession
and on tho trial tho prosecution
had only introduced one tin to
provo that it was npinra. Ho
maintained that tho prosecution
could not now go on nnd charge
him with the possession of an
other lot of the same parcel, hav
ing already proved him gnilty of
the genornl offense.
For tho prosecution Charles
Croightou argued that, although it
hnd been shown that Radin
originally took the two packages
to tho stablo together, he
could be hold ou two charges.
Tho possession of opium in his
hack at the wharf was ono oIIoubo.
Tho finding of tho othor lot under
the Chinaman's bed was auothor,
especially as it was found hours

defendant wan just as liablo to bo
tried on two charges as a man
would be who having committed
an assault aud being bailed out
went back and ropoatod the
olfonse. Conviction ou tho first
assault would certainly not be
held as a ploa in bar to tho sou
ond. tho defonue, arguing that tho case
boforo the Court was similar to
that for liquor soiling. In such
cases a man boing convicted of
selling liriuor jii a cortaiu district

troduced 'evidence as to a cortaiu

point raised wus a novel uno. If
ho was forced to decide it offhand

hoped tho attorneys would not in

point was an important one and if

then, besides affording a precodont
for futuro cases. Ho proforrcd to
look tho matter up during recess
and would decido whether tho
trial should proceed or not at 1:30
At tho afternoon session Judgo
de la Vorgno stated that hehad
looked into tho question raised,
Tho common law' rulo seemed to
bo whether tho evidonco in the
second chnrgu was such as could
bo used in tho trial of tho first. Ho
quotod tho section in tho
Constitution bearing on tho case
which stated that no person could
be hold nnswerablo for a second
offense whoro tho ovidonco was
identical iu law and in fact with
the first. Ho could' not undor '

By consent of counsel Attoruoy
Creighton thon made a statement
of tho testimony to be introduced j
against Katun, after hearing
which Attorney Ballou put the
question to tho court:
"it mis evidence had been intro
duced and proven in tho firBt caBe,
would not the dofendant have
lwnn convicted on it ?"
"Most certainly," roplied tho

Washington, April 3. The
Office of Clival Intelligence has
received from the Amoricnn naval
attache at Loudon full details of
tho now ship-building plan of the
British navy recontly agreed to by
the Admiralty Office. Tho amount
of money involved in the pro
gramme is upward of 82,000,000
gieator than ostimatos in any pro-'
viotiB year, and shows tho purpose
on tho part of Great Britain to
continue the work of increasing
her navy and propariug for auy
emergency. t Tho plan indicates
that there is littla disposition to
hold ships in reserve, and that as
faBt as they can be mado ready for
sorvico thoy will bo commissioned
and assigned to squadrons. It is
further btated that in view of the
recent action of tho powers in
greatly strengthening their fieots

will nugmeut it pqnadrons in the

The nmount of raonojr England
