Charlie Jones, Oriental witness for the Crown whose evidence caused several days' furore last January when he appeared against com patriots in a gambling case, was jail ed yesterday for a month after Judge Lacroix had found him guilty of perjury In the January trials. "All lies and a frame-un against me," said Charlie vehemently as the court ask ed him what he thought of the evi dence against him. "Bet my life it's true," he went on, insisting that he had' been in the rhlnna Renublican Club on the afternoon of December 4, when the provincial police made the raid which led to five Chinese being tried and acquitted on January 13 and 18. But the court was not sympatnetic. nis Lordship stressed the fact that, yes terday, as each witness testified against the accused, Charlie darod his Oriental opponents 10 swear iiinoBe way" that he had hot been In the club premises. Fifty-four years of age, with a clean record up to now, Charlie was told from the bench that the fact he has a wife, and eight children saved him from two years in the penitentiary. The trial did not take long. Charli Ho. the Chinaman who was charged last January with keeping a gaming house at the premises numbered 4 Lagauchetiere street west; Yee Fai, the club doorkeeper; Wong Nip Lai, a club visitor; Lee Kee Dep. another clubman: Lee You and Chin Haw, all swore that they had not seen Charlie Jones in the club prior to the police raid which took place around three o'clock in. the afternoon. One of them had seen him enter after the raid and just as the police were taking the prisoners away. CROWN PRODUCED TESTIMONY, Camilien Houde, M.L.A. for St. Mary's, Montreal, Accompanies Chief Railway Also an Issue Then the Crown produced the sworn testimony of Charlie when he was a Crown witness last January In that he had said that he had been in the place all day, that he had been at the domino table, that be had moved around from table to table and that he had seen the four ac cuscd at that time in the club. Questions by the defence were re quested. Charlie conducted his own defence. "Will you swear that on the Chinese oathV" was his question to each witness. "I have already sworn on the Bible, was the reply each time. Whate the difference between a Chinese oath and the British oath? Judge Lacroix asked once or twice. "Lots of difference here," said the accused grimly. Defence testimony was called. The accused took the oath on the Bible. T was there In the club," he suld 'Bet mx life it's true I was there That evidence what they say all lies frame-up against me. There are not two oaths In this country," the course said, rendering Judgment. "There Is one oath, and that Is the British oath, and It means that when a witness Is called to court he must tell the truth at the begin ning, In the middle, and at the end." The prisoner was found guilty. "Are you married?" the judge nsked. "Yes eight children," said Charlie smartly. 'Anybody here to check that'.' the court inquired. One Chinaman said he thought the prisoner had "quite a few" children. The fact was later checked. "I was going to give you two years," Judge Lacroix said. "But in view of the fact that you have a wife and so many children, I will send you away for a month with hard labor." CHILD INJURED BY FALL FROM WINDOW Infant Had Arms Crushed in Electric Wringer in . Home Arthur Sauve, provincial Conservative leader, left last night for a tour of new Quebec. The provincial chief was accompanied by Camilien Hondo, Conservative M.L.A. for St. Mary's, Montreal and Maurice Bouillane, of Quebec, but a former native ot Vllle Marie, and Herve Roch. The party will be gone some eight days, and in the course of that time will study conditions in Temiskamlns and Abitibl counties, and will address a number of public meetings. The travellers will get into Que bec's hinterland by ineaiiB of the Temiskaming & Northern Ontario Railway, via New Liskentd lo Ville Marie, where the first of a series of meetings will be held. In the course of the last session of the Quebec Legislature a strong dele gation of Temiskaming county citi zens appeared at Quebec and made various requesls. They asked, (lrst. that the Provincial Government grant such aid to the Canadian Pacific Rail way Company as to Induce the company to extend Its new lino northward through the county into Abitibl and connect up wilh the Trans continental Railway at Amos or some nearby point. The line now ends ati Angllers. There was further corn-plaint made that colonization in Temiskaming had not grown of late years, the region being "jumped over" for the Abitibl district. Mr. Sauve and his companions will study these various matters In the course of their tour, and make clear the views of the Conservative party as to colonization and matters pertinent thereto. On Mr. Sauve's return it is expected that the series of meetings in the district of Montreal will be resumed. The party is pleased with the response shown by the electorate at the two public meetings already held, the first being at Lachute, where J. L. St. Jacques, M.L.A. for Argenteuil, had a big demonstration, and the second last Sunday at St. Polycarn. where Dr. J. A. Lortie. Conservative M.L.A. for Soulangcs, also had a good meeting. Though plans are not definite as regards dates, It is pxpectcd that there will be a regional rally at. Yal-leyfleld. which Is the leading city of Beauharnois county, represented by Arthur Plante, M.L.A. for that county. Mr. Sauve and other colleagues of Mr. Plante in the Legislative Assembly are expected to attend that demon stration. Political circles were much inter ested yesterday in the statement which was made by Hon. L. L. I'nte-nmide. a statement Indicating that New Hwai-King Shop Now in Operation An atmosphere of the Orient In architecture and merchandise pre vails in tho new liwril-King shop, opened on St. Catherine street, a few doors ivput of Guy. The shop forms the seventh in the elm in and the second to be situated In Montreal. In place of show-cases, pngoda-ilkc cabinets contain the goods for sale, or else iron-bound cabinets store the linens and embroideries. The buff-colored walls display tiny figures and colorful prints, or are hung with silken shawls and scarfs. Pig skin chests contain ivories and brass work, and antique tables with curled legs, hold beads, china and trinkets all redolent of the East. A tea room commands a view of the shop from a tcmplc-like gallery at the back where girls in Chinese costume serve tea. to the visitor. The variety of merchandise is great, from Mandarin costumes to luces, lacquer ed screens to embroidered fillppers all from China. The sliop is being conducted for the sale of the work of natives In the Christian missions In China.

"The hospitals are only giving to the public today what the public has been educated to demand: a service that will Insure that a correct diagnosis be made, and that efficient treatment dV successful operations, where possslble. be performed. "The average person who has been treated In a hospital views his bill with suspicion. He practically never knows, and he seldom enquires, as to wnat it has been necessary to provide behind the scenes to bring him back to a good state of health. "Our hospitals are In themselves practically small towns. Thev have fully equipped laundries, blacksmith shops, power houses, storage depart ments, banking facilities, purchasing libraries; and in some of the city hospitals it Is not at all uncommon for, them to treat Indoors and outdoors over 1,000 patients a day, and in addition, to handle another 2,000 visitors. "Medical education has become specialized until it now requires six years to graduate Instead of the former four years. Nursing education has followed suit. The preparation of special diets has in many cases superseded the giving of medicines. Ail of these changes have added, appreciably to the upkeep of our hospitals. "And take, for example, our operating rooms as they are today with their sterilizing equipment, anaesthetizing department, expensive In- depnrtment, information bureaux, j sfrumerits and appliances, their seemingly over-liberal use of sterile linen, their staff of cleaners, graduate nurses and attendants. Is- it any wonder that the cost of equfpping and operating today is many times that of twenty-five years ago? "On the other side of the balance sheet, it must be realized that it in possible to perform operations J.o-day on patients and almost assure them of the fact that they will safely recover." In conclusion, the Montreal Hospital Council voices the opinion that once the public has become fully ac quainted wan the service ths city hospitals are rendering, thev will give their whole-hearted support to the Council's pleas for the necessary financial assistance to continue their wmk among the citizens of Mont real.
