MANCHESTER POLICE SCANDAL. ♦ WATCH COMMITTEE CONDEMNED, A private meetmg of Manchester citizens was held on Tuesday to discuss the action of the Watoh Committee of the Manchester Cor- poration in regard to the recent police scandal. On the motion of Mr. Percy Glass, seconded by Mr. E. Tootal Broad hurst, the following resolution was carried unanimously:—"That the recent report of Mr. Commissioner Dugdale, Q.C., upon his inquiry into the management and discipline of the Manchester Police Force confirms the grave suspicions of the public, and justifies the demand which was made for a judicial inquiry that the report establishes the fact that there has been a very serious mismanagement of the police force, that the responsibility for this mismanagement rests. upon the Watch Committee, that the eonduct of the Watch Committee in not at once resigning on the receipt of the report, and its action since, reveals its incapacity to appreciate the gravity of its position, and arouses apprehension in the public mind of further and unrevealed irregu- larities. It is the imperative duty of the citizens independently of all party considera- tions to pronounce an emphatic condemnation of the Watch Committee by refusing to return to the Council on November 1st next any of the implicated members of the committee or other candidates who do not pledge themselves to oppose in the Council the re-election on the Watch Committee of any of the implicated majority." A resolution was also unanimously passed forming a committee for the purpose of carrying out the foregoing resolution.
