Nalder appeared for the prosecution, and asked that the charge against Forman might be withdrawn. Accused asked that the case might be adjourned, so that they might obtain the services of a solicitor, which they had been unable to do up to that time. No opposition was offered by the prosecution, the case was adjourned until to-morrow.
