Magistrate Shaw commented very strongly in court today on the notion of Mr. Donald Downio, barrister, in the matter of a vagrancy charge brought against one Maurice .Sltna mons. Simmons was arrested several days ago, a remand being granted in order that his father might be communicated with. He was allowed out on the understanding that he would leave the city.

Today Air. .Simmons, senior, appeared in court, having hurried to Vancouver from the prairie to find out what trouble his son was in. He went Into the witness box and informed the court that Mr. Downie wired him for $100, winch ho at once forwarded. Later he received another wire, as a result of which lie at once took train for this city, to find his son still in jail, although the money had been sent for his release. "Do you mean to tell me you allowed this boy to be brought in here again as a vagrant when you knew he had $100?" asked the court of counsel. "There is no question of that before the court," replied Air. Downie. "But there is a question," said Magistrate Shaw. "If you did this It is manifestly unfair towards the boy. Why was I not Informed by you of that circumstance?" Air. Downie proceeded to state that there had been no need for such a course, but the court in no measured terms informed counsel that It considered Simmonds had been most unfairly treated by his counsel. "Is the court making any reflection on his counsel?" asked Mr. Downie. "I have not his $100. The court may search me." "I'll let this bov go home with his father," said the magistrate Bharply.
