Abstract: Let G be a topological group of second category and having cardinality at most that of the continuum. Let B be some $ \sigma $-algebra of subsets of G such that (G, B) is a measurable group. For a probability measure P on (G, B), write $ {P_g}$ for the measure defined by $ {P_g}(E) = P(gE),E \in {\mathbf{B}}$. The aim of this paper is to prove the following: if on (G, B) there exists an inner-regular probability measure P such that $ {P_g} \ll \mu $ for every $ g \in G$, where $ \mu $ is some $ \sigma $-finite measure on (G, B), then G is locally compact. Further if S denotes the $ \sigma $-algebra generated by the topology of G and m denotes a Haar measure on G, then $ \mu \gg m \gg {P_g}$ for every $ g \in G$ on the $ \sigma $-algebra $ S \cap {\mathbf{B}}$.
