Royal Clemency

The British Columbian, July 15, 1865

ROYAL CLEMENCY has been exercised in the free pardon of Lutas, the Chilicoaten Indian who was found guilty of murder in the third degree at the late Special Assize. Lutas and Achpickermous, the Indian who has been held in durance vile during the last ten months, as an important witness in the matter, will proceed to Victoria in the Enterprise to-day, and accompany Mr. Moss to Bella Coola, for which place they will start from Victoria in a canoe in the course of next week.
