He was very drunk and verv disorderly. He was causing a crowd to collect on tho streetlie was very abusive; and was shouting bad language at the top of his voice. 1 wen up to him and requested him to go to the house. He refused to go. His wife and daughter tried to get him into the house; but 116 still refused and went down Blue- street. I had some complaints from the neighbours about him towards the end of last week. Defendant said he did not remember any- thing of the occurrences in question. lie had been a teetotaller for years; but did not know what had come over him lately. The Bench inflicted a penalty of 5s and costs. Defendant called attention to what he considered was favouritism on the part of the police. He had had five panes knocked out of his window and the boys persisted in knocking about the place so much that he could not hear a word which tho customers in the shop said. Ho had put some boxes in front of his shop to put a stop to the nuisance, but the police insisted on his removing tlieni-altlioitgli other tradespeople in the street were allowed to do exactly the same thing. zn The Mayor said that if the defendant had any complaint to mako as to breaches of the bye-laws he ought to report the case in the Town Clerk's office, where it would be dealt with in the usual way. The defendant thanked tho Mayor for the information, and then withdrew.
