THE POLICE COMMISSION.

AUCKLAND, November 11. The Police Force Commission of Inquiry commenced sitting to-day, Mr Kenny, S.M., presiding. After consultation it was decided that the proceedings should be open to the Press. The only case to be inquired into in Auckland was that of Inspector Emerson, of Hawke’s Bay, against whom a certain charge had been laid. Those present at the inquiry were Inspector Emerson; his counsel, MrJ. A.Tole; MrC. E. Button, who appeared for the Prohibition party; Mr Haselden, representing the Auckland Prohibition League; and two witnesses—Mr William Cooper, barrister, formerly magistrate at Samoa, and Mr Adam Henderson, shipbuilder. . Mr Kenny said that written statements were made by the captain and steward of the steamer Dingadee regarding Inspector Emerson. He would read those statements, which would enable both sides to consider their position better, and then proceed to take evidence to-morrow. The inquiry was adjourned till to-morrow morning, and the witnesses withdrew. Mr Kenny then read the statements privately to counsel for the respective parties.
