At the Police Court this morning Herbert Willis was charted for that he, being a police constable, unlawfully did not use his best endeavor to apprehend and convey before some Justice a person found offending against the Police Offences Act, 1884, and was thereby guilty of a neglect of duty. Mr Sim asked for an adjournment for this reason: It was arranged that Sir Robert Stout should appear on behalf of the constable, and until five o'clock last night it was thought he would be free to do so. But the case in which he was engaged at the Supremo Court was not yet concluded. Sir Robert knew all the facts of the case, while he (Mr Sim) was not prepared to go on with it.

Inspector Weldon said that he did not wish to take the constable at a disadvantage, but understood that the witnesses and all parties to tho case were present. Mr Stanford intimated that he appeared to watch the interests of Mr Mallard and assist Inspector Weldon. Mr Carew said that ho could not recognise that position ; he could only take notice of two parties—complainant and defendant. Mr Stanford might assist Inspector Weldon as much as he liked, but could not take any part in the proceedings. An adjournment would be granted for a week.
