Chinese and Sunday Labour.—

Chinese and Sunday Labour.—The police prosecuted ten Chinese market gardeners named Ah. Lee, George Duck, Ah Sun, Hing Yong, Kam Wah, Ah Ping Ling, George Ling, William J Linton , and Alfred W. Linton, for following their occupation in view of the public at Avondale on Sunday, February 12th. The defendants were represented by Mr W. J. Napier, who secured an adjournment of the cases until Wednesday, as he wished to have time to look into the legal aspect of the affair and summon some witnesses for the defence.
