caused a laugh in the court room Ur.
Belville considered Gam's hones a reputa
ble place. He had never heard a word
against the bouse or the mao.
Register Charles H UcWbortar said the
reputation of the bouse had always been
good. He told Ur. Prlokatt that Gelder'»
bouse, the place established by tke temper
ance people, was a subterfuge. There were
no accommodations at the place. The
house was situated 159 feet from the public
road and there was no sign on the
house. Ur. Bmithers read a written state
ment of Ur. McWhorter'«, giving the
house a garerai overhauling for Inefficiency
and usel, ssness. It stated emeag other
startling things that there was no other
house then Gam's la the town, which bad a
population of 500; that there wee no amrer
place than O le.ta to get accommodations,
and that Calder'e place habngal to the
Canal Co.

One of the moms was open day and night.
Ha bad stable accommodations for six
horses, aod no person had ever applied for

got permission from the canil company to
use the bous». There were licensed hotels
that sell liquor within three, four, seven
end 10 miles of St. Georges. On crose-ex
amination, he raid the room that was kept
open at all times, was not especially for
the accomodation of the canal company
and he hud never refused to accommodate
Justice Geo. W . Townsend told bow
Calder'e house came to be established. Me
said the people got op in arms »gainst
