MR. L. YATES, S.M., when presiding at

day last, had even a still more disgusting
case than that of the foreigner Anderson
to investigate, and one would be inclined
to think that the tirade of abuse
down his feelings of antipathy towards
than good by its persistent and morbid
outcry agains a doubtful injustice done
offence against public decency. By re-
ference to the report of the Police Court
proceedings, printed elsewhere, the out-
line of an exceedingly revolting case will
Evening News would screen in the case
of Anderson. The public of Balmain hav-
ing experienced in their midst the hein-
ousness of the class of misbehaviour we re-
by the News will have every reason to
thank its conductors for encouraging
punishment. Three girls of the worst
class that Balmain is infected with, and
a man committed, and assisted to com-
mit, an act that would shame the original
inhabitants of this land, and that before
young children in broad daylight, and in
view of dozens of houses. We certainly
consider that the prisoners should have
been kept in durance vile for at least six
months each, in place of two and four.
Crimes of this kind will have to be puni-
shed with the utmost severity in order
become scenes of such badness that
respectable females will not be able to
look out of the windows of their houses,
let alone walk along the streets. We
occasion on which the police bring them
before the Court they will be taught
lessons that will cause them to turn over
new leaves and lead more respectable
lives.
