QUARTER SESSIONS.
———
(Before Judge Murray and a jury.)

    Mr Herbert Harris prosecuted for the Crown.

“NOTHING AFFECTING GOOD CHARACTER.”

    John Vaughan (36), a man-o’-warsman, and Thomas Dalbo, a young man, were acquitted on a charge of lewdness, at Sydney, on October 18.

    Mr JW Abigail appeared for both accused.

    The foreman of the jury, in announcing the verdict, said: “We would like to add that there is nothing to affect the good character of Vaughan.”

    His Honor, supplementing the rider, said the verdict was one that exculpated Vaughan from any sort of disgrace. At the same time, he hoped that Vaughan would bear in mind that he would not have got into this trouble unless he had had too much drink. He hoped it would be an example to him for the whole of his life, and he further hoped that the man-o’-warsman would by no chance drink more than was good for him. Vaughan wanted to keep in the best form physically, mentally, and morally without touching alcohol.
