Nelson, April 17.

At the public meeting lash night there was a crowded attendance, and Messi’s. Bunny and Pitt were present. The latter read some correspondence between Mr. Adams and himself, and the former gave a statement of his conduct re the proceedings against the hon. member for the city. The resolutions passed were that the evidence in the case laid before the Minister for Justice, and that Mr. Adams be requested to resign his seat in the House. Nelson, April 19.

The charges against Messrs. Bunny, Teschemaker, Percy Boland Adams, and Langley Adams, for conduct likely to provoke a breach of the peace, which charges arose out of the horse-whipping case that followed the conclusion of the case for perjury against Mr. Acton Adams, M.H.R., were heard this afternoon. Regarding the charges made against Mr. Teschemaker, the Bench said he acted in a manner becoming a gentleman and a magistrate in endeavoring to keep the peace and prevent assault. His case was dismissed. On the charge against Mr. Bunny, the Magistrate said he acted simply in self-defence, and- dismissed his case. On the charge against Langley Adams, the defendant stated that, seeing Mr. Teschemaker holding his brother, he remonstrated on the ground of fair play. The Bench failed to understand how he could have been so greatly mistaken, but believed his statement, and fined him 20s. and costs. Percy Boland Adams was bound over to keep the peace for six months—himself in LSO, and two sureties of L 25 each.
