So then on account of the day light or the electric light all through the night I could see the time on my watch. It was not so dark that I could not tell the time.

17- Q. And after catching him, -- this chinaman, -- what did you do then? A. I snapped the hand-cuff on his left hand. And I took hold of the right cuff with my right hand, and I picked up the one sack of chickens.
18- Q. You took him back to where the chickens were? A. Yes, it is only a short distance, three or four yards.
19- Q. Oh. I see, he had no opportunity to run further? A. No, Sir. And I told him to carry that sack of chieckens. And I took hold of the other sack and I led him along about 800 yards. And he came along without any trouble. And he was carrying one sack.
20- Q. You were leading him along, -- was that leading him along the track? A. No leading along the road, -- there is a road there. It comes out on Canton Street I think it is.

23- Q. He must have dropped his sack to do it? A. I did not notice whether he dropped the sack or not.
