  • 3 Jun 1905, WAS IT DESERTION? A Peculiar Charge.
    A man named William John Smith was charged on Monday with leaving his children without means of support. Messrs. Francis and Hester, J.'sP., were on the bench. Elizabeth Smith said the defendant was her husband. He had sent her no money for the children since April or May last year.
    Mr. Lamplugh, who appeared for Smith, said this was a peculiar charge, and the particulars of the case were interesting. The family originally lived in Gippsland, but Mrs. Smith came away from there with her father and the children, and left Smith there by himself. She had practically deserted him. Smith was only a labourer and could not send any money. It was hardly fair to ask him to keep up two establishments.
    Mrs. Smith said that when they were in Gippsland they were living on her father's farm. It was not paying, and it was sold on the understanding that her father was to start a business in town, and that they were to help him. She came away with her father, and they started a business in Hawthorn, but Smith did not come with them. The business was not successful and she had to do laundry work.
    Mr. Lamplugh said Smith had offered to take the children.
    Mrs. Smith : But I would not allow my children to go and live in a bark hut.
    Mr. Lamplugh : Smith had arranged to have the boys live with him and the girls were to go to his sister. He was clearing a selection, and had, moreover, been ill in the hospital, and he could not send any money.
    Mrs. Smith said they had been married for 19 years, and she had been working hard in Port Melbourne for four years, and her husband only sent her an odd pound. She had no preference for Melbourne, but could get more work here.
    Mr. Lamplugh: Smith was clearing a little farm at Yarragon, and he thought the boys could help him. He had a cabin with two rooms.
    The case was dismissed.3
