  • 18 Jul 1888, DANDENONG COUNTY COURT, TUESDAY, JULY 17, 1888. Before His Honor Judge Chomley and a jury of four.
    William Brisbane v. John Robert Wilson; debt, £32 9s. 9d., for commission on the sale of 88½ acres of land at Beaconsfield, belonging to defendant.—Mr. Johnston appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr. Leon instructed by Mr. Cleverdon, appeared for the defendant.—In this case the plaintiff (Brisbane) sought to recover the sum of £32 9s. 9d. as comission on 88½ acres of land, which he alleges he was authorised to sell for the defendant, J. R. Wilson.—The plaintiff said he was authorised by a conversation ot the 7th April, in this year, by defendant, at the Beaconsfield railway station, to sell the land in question at £15 per acre. The terms were to be half cash, and the balance in two years bearing 6% interest. Under this authority Brisbane sold the land to Dr. L L. Smith. The defendant denied having given plaintiff any authority to sell the land, and tried to prove that Brisbane was acting in the best interests of Dr. L. L. Smith, who was employing him at a salary of £400 a year and dinner given in.—Mr John Ryan, who was then a stationmaster at Beaconsfield, but now removed to Pakenham, was called to corroberate plaintiff as to part of the conversation as to the terms. Mr. Glascock, Brighton, gave evidence as to subsequent conversation in reference to defendant asking plaintiff when he would require possession of the property.—For the defence it was urged that Wilson had given Brisbane no authority to sell, but that he had taken upon himself to do so on the strength of a casual conversation, between Wilson and himself.—The jury, after half an hour's deliberation, returned a verdict for the plaintiff with £12 6s. 6d. costs.22

Note*1937 CORONER’S INQUEST (typed) into the death of Donald Neil McDonald. ____________ VICTORIA, TO WIT This Deponent Percival Wallis Fuller On his oath saith, I am a Motorman in the employ of the State Electricity Commission of Victoria Residing at 27 Swanson Street, Geelong. On the 9th September, 1937, I was Motorman on tramcar No. 2 when it left the terminus at East Geelong at 6.19p.m. on the trip to the city and was traveling in Queenscliff Road in a westerly direction. When about a quarter of a mile from the terminus, I was casting down hill at a speed of about 15 m.p.h. when I noticed, about half a mile ahead, a motor vehicle approaching with two bright headlights showing. The motorist passed a horsedrawn jinker when it was some hundreds of yards away from the tram, and in doing so swung on to the centre of the track. I sounded the gong violently and applied the air brake, slowing the tram down to about 10 m.p.h. The motorist, driving erratically, appeared to make an attempt to clear the tram track, but again swung back on to the centre of the track when about 100 feet away from the tram. I immediately applied full emergency brake and had slowed down to about 3 m.p.h. I noticed the motorist was traveling at a fast speed, estimated to be from 40-50 m.p.h., and he did not slacken speed at all and came on to strike the front of the tram head on. The time was then about 6.22 p.m. The visibility was fair, with light rain falling. The tram traveled only about 4-5 feet after the collision, and the front wheels of the tram were derailed after impact. The whole of the bonnet up to the dash board, except near side front wheel, of the motor car was crushed under the front bumper of the tram. I went to the driver’s assistance, but found him unconscious, leaning against the door on the driving side. I asked Conductor Atkins to call an ambulance, which arrived shortly after, and the police were also notified, and took the motorist to hospital.
VICTORIA, TO WIT This Deponent Percival Wallis Fuller On his oath saith, I am a Motorman residing at 27 Swanson Street, Geelong away from the tram when the accident occurred. I saw the car pass the cart. It passed about 60 yards from the tram. I made no measurements of distances. The motorist was traveling very fast. The usual speed of a tram is 15-18 miles per hour. I was traveling at 15 mph. traveling at 15 mph under these conditions I could pull the tram up in 20 feet. I did not notice a light on Dellers [sic – the horse & cart] vehicle Mr Dooley / I have never measured the distance it takes to pull up a tram which is traveling at 12 to 15 mph I have never made a test. P.W. Fuller
