REMANDED.

    James Johnston [aka James Dunbar], 25, was charged with having behaved improperly in Sparke’s Lane, Newcastle, on June 23 and July 14. Sergeant Ward, the police prosecutor, on whose application a remand for a week was granted, said that complaints of conduct similar to that attributed to defendant had been coming to the police for three weeks, and it was possible that other charges would be made. Bail was allowed in sureties of £20.
