During the search of the premises an opium pipe, opium, lamp, tray and a bottle in a room occupied by a Chinaman named Wong. Wong was brought before Justices of the Peace J. J. White and A. Macdonald on Monday, April 15, and was charged with having opium in his possession without lawful authority from the minister authorized by the Narcotic Drug Act.
After hearing the evidence the accused was adjudged guilty and sentenced to a fine of $200 and costs of $4, or in default of payment seven months in jail.
