Whereupon the said Francis Joynt saith as follows: "I am not guilty".

Victim's report

John Charles West

I am a mariner by calling and my home is in the city of Belfast, Ireland. I am in possession of a certificate as second mate which I obtained from the Board of Trade at the said city of Belfast and I came out to this port in that capacity on board the ship "Bolivia" now lying in the harbour of Quebec.

Sunday last, the fourth of the present month of August, I came on shore in the morning and in company with a friend by the name of James Shaw. I attended high mass at St. Patrick's Church in this city of Quebec and in the course of the afternoon, I went with some young men whom I knew by sight to the Plains of Abraham to see them playing baseball; and from there I went to the residence of a Mr. Reason, stevedore, who is loading the ship "Bolivia". There I met Captain John Hawthorne, the master of the said ship, with whom I went for a drive together with Reason. On our return to the residence of the latter, we had tea there together and shortly afterwards the Captain and I started on our way back to the ship, "Bolivia" which is lying at the place called "Ottawa Cove".When we came within sight of the vessel, and while passing the store kept by Mrs. O'Neil, in the parish of St. Colombe de Sillery, the Captain went in and I continued on to the ship to ascertain if everything was all right. I went on board and saw that everything was correct, and did not remain over a couple of minutes when I left to return and join the Captain who as I said before had gone in to the store of Mrs. O'Neil. It was then about eight o'clock in the evening and darkness was beginning to set in. As I reached the road at about fifty yards away from Mrs. O'Neil's store I saw a low set man with a tall hat running along the road and at about ten yards behind him four other men were following him and two out of the four were in advance of the two others. To the best of my recollection, I think there were four following the low set man but I am not sure.

When the two who were in advance of the others came up to me, without and provocation whatsoever on my part and without my having spoken a word to them, I was struck by one of them with a violent blow with his fist over the mouth and he called me at the same time "a son of a bitch", the other also struck me and I was knocked to the ground. I called to them as loudly as I could, and several times, "Lads you have made a mistake, I am not the man", but they did not heed me. The other one or two, I am not sure, had by this time, came up and all were beating and kicking me about the ribs and body while down. After a little while I managed somehow to get up and ran away; but I did not know at the time, in what direction I was going. While running I felt a pain in my back towards my left side and at the same time I also felt the blood running down my back into my drawers. I began then to feel very weak and don't now recollect anything more of what occurred till I found myself in Mrs. O'Neil's house and the people there in undressing me and attending to me. Here I heard the Captain's voice, but I did not see him. Shortly afterwards the doctor who I believe had been sent for arrived and dressed my wounds. He ordered that I should be kept perfectly quiet and prohibited my being removed for Mrs. O'Neil's house where I am now lying suffering from the ill treatment and the wounds inflicted upon me and the evening in question. The wounds or cuts and fine in number. One as I said before in the back towards the left side; another on the right side below the ribs a third below the right shoulder, a fourth on the face running on the left cheek from the left ear, and a fifth across the bridge of the nose. These wounds are causing me considerable pain and I am suffering much from pains in my body about the ribs from kicks which were dealt me when lying on the ground as above stated.

I apprehend no unfavorable result; on the contrary, I fully expect and have every hope of recovering; in fact, the doctor who is attending me has told me that he thought I would recover. When I was attacked as above stated, though it was not yet altogether dark, it was sufficiently so to prevent my recognizing the features of those who beat me; but I remarked that of the two first who assaulted me, one was taller than the other; and of the other two, if they were two, one was much smaller, lower set than then others. Of the three prisoners now here present, I cannot say if any one of them was amongst my assailants; but upon examining them carefully as I have been requested to de, I find that as regards to the general appearance of these three prisoners, their height and stature correspond with the appearance of those who ill treated me on the evening in question. All that was said by them on the occasion was spoken in English; and I recollect no other words spoken by any of them except those above mentioned.

I now produce the coat, waistcoat and flannel shirt which I wore on the evening in question. They are all three cut in three different places in the back of each and these cuts correspond with the wounds in my back which I have above described; these garments are stained with blood that flowed from the wounds in question as well as from those in my face. I was thus ill used, beaten and stabbed on the evening of Sunday last the fourth of this month without the slightest provocation on my part, for, as I said above, I did not speak a word and was on my way quietly from my ship to Mrs. O'Neil's house where I intended rejoining the Captain of my ship. The clothing above referred to which I have produced has been taken charge of in my presence by a person who states his name to be Thomas Walsh, and who says he is a detective in the police of Quebec.

Mr. Hamel of Counsel for the prisoner John Malone declares he has no questions to put to the witness; and the prisoners Francis Joynt and Thomas Nestor respectively declare they have no questions to put to the witness.

And hath signed
John Charles West

Sworn before me at the residence of one Mrs. Widow John O'Neil situated in the parish of St. Colombe de Sillery in the district of Quebec this 7th day of August 1889. D. Murray.


John Hawthorne

And this deponent John Hawthorne Master Mariner, now at the city of Quebec being duly sworn upon the Holy Evangelists, doth depose and say in presence of the prisoners Francis Joynt, Thomas Nestor and John Malone as follows to wit.

I am the Master in command of the bark "Bolivia" now riding in the harbour of Quebec and amongst my crew I have John Charles West as Second Mate. We arrived here in this port about a fortnight ago and we entered for loading at a place called Ottawa Core in the harbour.

On Sunday last the fourth day of present month of August I left my ship and went to the residence of one Reason whose Christian name I believe to be William and who resides on the St. Louis Road. There I met my second mate and John O'Malley stevedore, who has charge of the loading of my ship. We had tea at Mr. Reason's and shortly afterwards O'Malley, my second mate West and I together with Mr. Reason started on our way towards my ship. We had all come down and were in sight of my vessel at the Cove aforesaid when opposite the residence of one Mrs. O'Neil, situate on the Sillery side of the toll-gate and quite near Sherete. Mr. O'Malley, Reason and I entered Mrs. O'Neil's house. The second mate did not come in with us but proceeded on to the ship which is quite near Mrs. O'Neil's for the purpose of ascertaining if everything was alright on board.We had not parted but a very short time, barely three or four minutes, when I saw from the window of Mrs. O'Neil's house three or four (I am not sure whether it was four) young men running after two other men in the direction in which my second mate West had gone. I paid little or no attention to this till a few instants afterwards I heard a voice repeating several times these words: "Oh boys you are mistaken, I am not the man", and I at once recognized the voice as that of my second mate Mr. West.

I at once told O'Malley and Reason that it was my second mate that was thus complaining and I ran out immediately to his protection. Almost immediately opposite Mrs. O'Neil's door and on the public highway, I met three or four young men whom I challenged saying: "You scoundrels you have been beating an innocent man who has done you no harm," and there upon one of the three or four young men made for me, that is, he came up to assault me. I at once struck him in the face with my closed fist and knocked him down. The person whom I struck was a smaller man in every respect that myself and to the best of my knowledge and belief the prisoner here present who states his name to be Thomas Nestor, is the person I so struck. I don't swear positively that he is the man I struck but from his general appearance his height and stature his is to the best of my belief the man.

It was between eight and half past eight o'clock in the evening at the time and was more dark than light; in fact, darkness was setting in. The blow I dealt the man in question whom I believe to be the prisoner Thomas Nestor was not a very hard one but it was a determined blow and must have left it's mark on his face, and I see that the prisoner Nestor bears a mark on the bridge of his nose which is to the best of my knowledge the part of his face where I struck him.

Immediately upon my striking the prisoner Nestor I saw one of the three or four young men brandishing a knife which he held in hand and saying, "let me go for him, the son of a bitch" or some words to that effect. When I say that it was a knife he held in his hand, I do not wish to swear positively that is was a knife but it was a sharp pointed instrument of some sort.

When this man spoke the above words, he held his hand with the knife above him and was in the act of rushing upon me or O'Malley who was near me, when some one on the street called out, "Joynt, don't touch him, his is the Captain of Mr. O'Malley's ship". He was then laid hold of and prevented from coming on me.

On the oath which I have taken, the prisoner here present who states his name to be Francis Joynt is the person who brandished the knife and who spoke the words above mentioned. While the difficulty was going on and while I was in the midst of these three or four young men, I heard persons calling out to them by the names of Joynt, Nestor and Malone or Maloney and asking them to leave me alone as I was the Captain of Mr. O'Malley's ship. I do not recollect having seen the prisoner John Malone that evening, that is, I do not on my oath recognize him now as one of those who were with the prisoner Joynt and with the person I knocked down but I have no doubt as to the prisoner Joynt for I took particular notice of him because of the weapon he held in his hand which caused me to watch him closely.

Quiet was restored on the street and the young men above referred to went away. At this time I was not aware that my second mate West was stabbed or I would have certainly arrested the prisoner Joynt who held the knife in his hand. After they had all gone I at once went in search of my second mate whom I found in Mrs. O'Neil's house, suffering from wounds which had just been inflicted upon him and the persons in the house attending upon him and undressing him. He was sitting in the floor, his cloths covered with blood and looked weak and faint. Fearing that he was mortally hurt, I at once sent for the priest and the doctor and both soon came. I saw the doctor dress the second mate's wounds which were bleeding profusely at the time. He was stabbed in three different places in the back and cut in two places on the face one running along the left cheek from the mouth towards the left ear and another over the bridge of the nose. Mr. O'Malley, Reason and I remained up all night watching and attending upon the second mate. He is still lying at Mrs. O'Neil's suffering from the injuries inflicted upon him on the evening in question, and under the doctor's care. The wounds were of such a nature that the doctor ordered that the second mate should be kept absolutely quiet and prohibited his being removed from Mrs. O'Neil's house.

Mr. West, the second mate is a young man of about twenty-three or twenty four years of age, quiet, sober and inoffensive. When I recognized the voice of the second mate shouting: "Oh boys, you have made a mistake, I am not the man", and that I ran out at once, I called out on reaching the street: "is that you Mr. West" and he replied, "it is Sir". It was then I came face to face with the three or four persons above referred to.

The vessel "Bolivia" will be ready for sea tomorrow or next day and I hope to be able to leave in her on my way to the City of Belfast where she is bound for.

The prisoners Francis Joynt and Thomas Nestor declare they have no questions to put to the witness and the prisoner John Malone states that he did not see the witness John Hawthorne on the occasion on question but saw two persons coming down the road who he was informed was the Captain and another man; and the prisoner John Malone declares he has no questions to put to the witness.

I am a resident when at home of the City of Belfast, Ireland as is also the second mate John Charles West. We are both seafaring men and have no permanent domicile in Canada.

And hath signed

John Hawthorne

The foregoing deposition was taken and sworn before me at Quebec this 9th day of August 1889 D. Murray.


Thomas Walsh

And this deponent Thomas Walsh, being duly sworn upon the Holy Evangelus doth depose and say in presence of the prisoners Francis Joynt, Thomas Nestor and John Malone as follows to wit:

I am a detective in the police Force of the City of Quebec and as such I was informed on the evening of Sunday, the fourth of August instant that a seaman had been stabbed by some townspeople and that he was lying dangerously ill from his wounds at a house near the turnpike bar kept by one Mrs. O'Neil. I at once proceeded in company with sergeant Burke of the Provincial police to Mrs. O'Neil's house where we found the wounded man West, second mate of the ship "Bolivia" and doctor Gosselin who was attending upon him. The latter told us that West was badly and even dangerously wounded and we enquired who it was who had hurt the mate. Captain Hawthorne who was there as well as Mr. Reason and Mr.O'Malley the latter two, of Quebec, stevedores, told us how it had all occurred and O'Malley and Reason said that the persons who had inflicted the injuries upon the mate were one Malone, Joynt and Nestor. They also told me that it had occurred outside of the turnpike bar, in the parish of St.Colombe Sillery in the district of Quebec.

When I got this information at Mrs. O'Neil's it was about midnight and Sergeant Burke and I with Sergeant Rigby and Kell went in search of the above three named persons. Detective Morrison was also along with us. We found John Malone at his boarding house in Champlain Street where we arrested him; and we arrested Francis Joynt at his brother's residence in the same street. These two arrest were made between the hours of one and three, Monday morning, the fifth instant and about Eight o'clock the prisoner Thomas Nestor surrendered himself into the hands of the police. On the following Wednesday the seventh instant I went with Judge Murray in charge of the three prisoners here present to the residence of Mrs. O'Neil where the judge in presence of the prisoners took West's deposition. In the course of his examination he produced some of the wearing apparel which he wore on the evening in question and which I took charge of. These articles consist of a flannel shirt a waistcoat and coat which are all three saturated with blood and are all cut in three different places in the back thereof, which cuts are clean and appear to have been made with a sharp instrument.

These articles I brought to court with me and handed them over by direction of Judge Murray to Patrick Horan who has had them in his possession ever since and the shirt, waistcoat and coat which are now shown me, in the office of the Peace are the same as those produced by West as aforesaid and they are in the same condition as when I took charge of them as above stated.

The three prisoners Francis Joynt, Thomas Nestor and John Malone respectively declare that they have no questions to put to the witness.

And hath signed

Sergt. J.H. Joynt Killed In Action.

Another gallant young Quebecer has made the supreme sacrifice on the battlefields of France, in the person of Joseph Henry Joynt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Joynt, who received notice from the records office, Ottawa, yesterday, to the effect that he had been killed in action on October 1st.

The late Sergeant Joynt left for overseas in the month of March 1916, as a private in the Grenadier Guards of Montreal and subsequently was promoted to the rank he held at the time of his death. Since going over-seas he has seen considerable service and was once wounded in the back, but after a month's time returned to the front. Later he was seized with illness, but this he also overcame and went back to the firing line, only to meet his death. He had also during his service narrow escapes, upon one occasion his prayer book, which was in his breast pocket, deflected a German bullet.

Popular among a wide circle of acquaintances, the death of Sergeant Joynt will be deeply regretted. He leaves to mourn their loss, besides his bereaved father and mother, three brothers and two sisters. The former are Messrs. Charles, Alphonsus and Francis Joynt, and the Misses Eleanor and Geraldine Joynt who will have the sympathy of many in their sad bereavement.
