MORAL DEPRAVITY.
————

    SYDNEY, Friday.—Mr McMahon, SM, speaking from the bench at the Ashfield Police Court to-day, said that moral depravity was very prevalent in the metropolitan area. He had only been in Sydney for 12 months, and during that time he had had to deal with cases of objectionable behaviour in every centre.
