THE CHARGES AGAINST CONSTABLE WALKER.

The inquiry into the alleged misconduct of Constable Walker was continued this afternoon at onfi o’clock, Ihapector Wfcldon Conducting the investigation. Mr S. Solomon appeared on behalf of the complainant, Mrs Ryder ; Mr D. D. Macdonald for the constable. The evidence of Constable Walker was taken, after which learned counsel addressed the inspector on behalf of their clients. This being done. Inspector Weldon gave judgment as follows “ The case is quite fresh in my mind. The grave portion of the charge is behaving immodestly to the woman. That, in my opinion, is not supported. I think Walker acted very injudiciously in going into the house. He should have reported to his superior offlefcr, and waited further instructions. But to go to the house and search was most improper, and when he found that the girls were not there there was no justification for him telling the woman to leave the place.

Constable Walker may now return to his duty,”
