- EMPLOYER'S TIME. One of the cadets before the City. Court to-day was charged with being absent from drill on a stated date. Captain Entwistle, who prosecuted, said the case was an important ono, because defendant absented hipiself : during the time granted by his employer, and, as the employers were abiding loyally by the new orders, it was only right that drills should be put in when the time to do so Was given. Defendant's reply yes that he would have attended, but he slept in on the morning referred, to. He was fined 2/6, or. 24 hours' detention.
