[APG Public List] Illegible word assistance requested

I'm trying to transcribe a judge's notes pertaining to witness testimony in
an assault case and keep coming across a word I can't make sense of. It
clearly refers to a weapon with which the victim was struck. It looks like
"steve" or "stem" or "stew". Do any of these words refer to something that
could be a weapon? In case it's relevant, the event took place in 1835 in
Toronto, Canada.

Thanks in advance for your comments,
