The British Columbian, July 6, 1865
The objections raised by Mr. Wood in the case of Ahan and Lutas, the two Chilicoaten Indians tried for murder on Monday last, were argued on Tuesday and overruled by the Court. The prisoners were brought up and sentence of death passed upon them. It is presumable that Ahan will be executed and the sentence of Lutas commuted for penal servitude.
