Robbery: 0050.0158


            While coming from the Prospect House, Thursday evening, “Tony” the Italian hired help at the Nakusp House, was held up by a brace of highwaymen and relieved of two bottles of liquor which he was conveying to the proprietor of the last mentioned establishment.  Next day Mr. Thomas caused warrants to be issued for the arrest of A. Littlejohn and M. Condon, charging them with the crime.  The former had his preliminary trial on Saturday, but was remanded till Monday, securing his liberty at $300 bail.  Both men were given a hearing on Monday before F.W. Jodar, J.P., but the evidence for the prosecution was so confused and tangled that no case could be made out and the prisoners were accordingly discharged.
