DECORUM. Proper behaviour; good order.
2. Decorum is requisite in public places, in order to permit all
persons to enjoy their rights; for example, decorum is indispensable in
church, to enable those assembled, to worship. If, therefore, a person were
to disturb the congregation, it would be lawful to put him out. The same

a request to desist should be first made, unless, indeed," when the
necessity of the case would render such precaution impossible. In using
force to restore order and decorum, care must be taken to use no more than
is necessary; for any excess will render the party using it guilty of an
assault and battery. Vide Battery.
