Yes­ter­day, at Ted­ding­ton Petty Ses­sions, stock­bro­kers Charles Henry de Rivez, Ernest Huggett, Ed­ward Jones, Ernest Matthews, John Alder­cron, Al­lan Gabriel, Ge­orge Wellings and cab­man James Henry Ar­gyle were sum­moned to­gether for us­ing ob­scene, scan­dalous, in­de­cent and im­proper lan­guage in, upon, or about the river Thames at Staines.

There were fur­ther sum­monses against De Rivez, Huggett, Jones, and Matthews with un­law­fully bathing in the river with­out wear­ing proper bathing dress. Af­ter hear­ing the ev­i­dence, the Chair­man said the Bench con­sid­ered all the de­fen­dants were guilty.

It was most lam­en­ta­ble to see men dis­grace them­selves in such a man­ner, and they were each fined.
