?Correspondence. ["We do not hold ourselves responsilife Tor tile opinions of our correspondents.] .(To the Editor of THE CAJUNS TOST.) Sin,-Through the medium of your columns, T should like to draw attention to a casu tba came under my notice, and which I think, in the cause of justice, should be made public. The day after the Si- Patrick's mecs a police constable arrested a man in Abbott street for gambling on the publie footway and took him to the lock-up. Shortly after- wards, on the same day. I saw the mau at liberty again, and npon enquiry was told that the senior-constable, Sergeant O'Sulli- van, had released him with a caution. I do not know hoiv the law deals with such charges of gambling, but what I should like to be informed upon is whether the senior coustable has power to try such cutes himself and discharge a man from custody upon his own responsibility without takinir him before a Court. The man was arrested on a spécifie charge, and it would have been more satis- fac...
