[By Telegram*.] Aucuclakd, May 26. At the Police Court to-day, Bloom, a respectable storekeeper, was charged with obstructing the police in the execution of their duty. Inspector Pardy said the constables had used unnecessary violence, and withdrew the charges. Bloom laid a charge of assault against Constables Ross and Igoe, but withdrew it on a promise being made that the men would bo punished under the police regulations, and pay Lll expenses. The particulars are these : Bloom was standing in front of his own shop door. He was told to “ move on,” but refused, on which the two constables knocked him down, knelt on him, handcuffed and dragged him to the station, where they put him in a cell with two drunkards, and refused bail, until Mr. Cosgravo, a J.P., procured his release. The case has caused much public indignation. Rc ss is a young member of the force.
