From The Argos Melbourne of 10 June 1901: "CASE AT PORT MELBOURNE Senior-constable Whealon, of the North Port Melbourne police station, was called to the house of a man named William Chrimes, of Ross-street, when it was found that he had attempted to cut his throat with a razor. The man was locked up, and on Saturday morning was remanded by Messrs. Francis and Burroughs, J.P.'s, till Thursday morning for medical treatment."
A separate newspaper report of attempted suicide in 1914 may apply.
From The Standard (Port Melbourne) of 30 August 1913: "Beach Nuisance - William Chrimes, a middle aged man, who described himself as a fish hawker and dealer, residing at York street, South Melbourne, was presented before Mr. Hester, J.P., on Wednesday, charged with being drunk and disorderly. Constable Morris said Chrimes was in a very deplorable condition near the Yacht Club house on the previous afternoon, in the presence of visitors and children. Chrimes said if given a chance he would sign the pledge for the rest of his life. Mr. Hester asked if he was a stranger to the courts. Ser-Nugent [?] then read out a long list of 'priors,' which were admitted. A fine of 10/-, or three days, was imposed."
From The Standard (Port Melbourne) of 6 September 1913: "SUPPORT INADEQUATE - MOTHER-IN-LAW'S QUERY - William Henry Chrimes, middle aged, describing himself as a fisher man, was charged on Thursday with leaving his three children - Charles Henry, Albert Clarence and Bertha Annie - without adequate means of support. Mary Ann Lang, of 56 Spring street, defendant's mother-in-law, said she was sometimes paid 10/-, but not sufficient to maintain the children committed to her care. Defendant's wife had been dead seven years. Defendant said he was agreeable to paying 15/- a week, but wanted to see the children when he desired: Mr. Armstrong, J P : Don't you allow him to see the children? Mrs. Lang: Yes; when he's sober. Mr. Armstrong: Does he drink? Mrs. Lang : Yes. (Confidently): 'You are more drunk than anything else, ain't you, Bill?' Defendant modestly denied the soft impeachment. An order was made for 15/- weekly, defendant being required to find one surety of £20 for its due fulfilment."
