Police Court - After the disposal of three or four drunks, the time of the court was occupied with the case of Mr. Allen, agent for the American Insurance Company, for infringment of the city bylaws by the manner in which he disposed of the cargo of the Harvest Queen, partially damaged by grounding on the shoal at Point Frederick. Messrs. Fee, Read, Richardson, Swift and Folger gave evidence as to the manner of sale. It was stated in evidence that several bids - or offers, as it was insisted upon by the defence - were made during the sale, and before it was finally disposed of. The magistrate decided to suspend judgement until 3 o'clock this afternoon, and in the interim the evidence would be submitted to the City Solicitor. In the case of Allen, for an infringement of the auctioneer's license law, his Worship said there was not sufficient evidence for a conviction, consequently he should dismiss the case.
