Indecent-Conduct. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 3 October 1914
Indecent. Conduct. At almost regulalr intervals our police find it necessary to lock up sea-faring men in consequence of their indecent conduct in Beach street, which usually follows exces sive drinking. Another of the class, \inm. Aslhall, 4(i years of age, who sald he was a sea-nman, was present ed before the magistrates on Mon-. day. Constable Quayle related his conduct, in view of unumerous people about. As lie had been locked up since 1 o'clock on the Saturday pre vious lie was discharged. Althotlgh no one desires to retain men of this substance in the State, it seems an easy "get out," after offering insult to a respectable community, to be locked up, sobered, fed, cleaned, and then regain freedom without even paying it fine. \Vhat would happen thcm in other parts of the world for similar conduct it would be interestiung to know.
