AN ACT OF ANOMALIES. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Courier and West Melbourne Advertiser — 6 December 1895
A'N AC? OF ANOMALIES. IF the enacteits of t1he Victorian Le ~gislature dealing with the morals and social lifeof the people are iiot among tlhe fiiost l'ogically framad;' or siiecessnlly administered measures on .our Statute Book, it is, perhaps, no matter for sur prise, as such legislation fromits very nature is less apt to work smoothly than that which is concerned with affairs out side the strange workings of human i~naturo. The question of the protection of women and girls we know has resulted in laws being passed which are operat ing in the most unsalisfactory manner, and the recent cases of Imen being placed in the dock on serious charges, lwhich turned oult to be chimnerns of some young females' demoralized imagination, must still be fresh in thie public mind. The Licensing Act, however, is par excel lence, the most anomalous and awkward piece of law-making Parliament has produced,~andl it is :ceraninly not calcu lated to raise the moral tone of either smh'ican. police._or p~...
