    A young man, 22 years of age, named Harry Suters formerly in the employ of Mr Norman, baker, of Woolcomber Street, applied to be placed on the list of constables, having heard that it was the intention of the Committee to increase the force by two additional men. He presented excellent testimonials, one being from the Rev W E Light, the rector of St James's, who spoke of the applicant in very favourable terms.
    The Mayor informed Suters, who was in attendance, that the Committee had not at present invited applications with a view to the increase of the force, although it was possible that they might do so. In the meantime, if he liked, he might have his name placed on the list of the supernumeraries. The applicant thanked the Committee and said he should be glad to have his name entered as a supernumerary constable, which was then done.
