by their father that they fell into
the toils of the law. The sons are

strangers in these parts. The
charge against them is that they
cut and removed ti mber' , from the
lands of another.; They claimed at
their preliminary examination , that
they are innocent of the charge,
but from evidence submitted, Jus
tice Holgate thought otherwise,
and placed them under bonds to
appear at court. ' " V -V
