THE REV. F. W. ISITT.
NELSON, November 18. At a public meeting this evening the Rev. Frank Isitt referred to the Sydney cablegram which said the serious charges made by him against a police officer at Orange had been proved totally untrue after the fullest inquiry. He said that until the publication of the cablegram he had heard nothing more of the conversation held with the Minister of Justice on September 7. It was difficult to know bow a full inquiry had been made when he (Mr Isitt) had not been asked to name a single authority for his statements. The statements were the result of what he was told when, by request, he went to address two meetings of the Lucknow miners on strike. The allegations made to him were suggestive of peril at a serious crisis, and he urged upon the Minister of Justice the necessity for an inquiry, not expecting the same to be one-sided.
