Mr Buckley, who appeared for the defendant, pointed out that the case did not come within the jurisdiction of the Court, as the payments which had been made to plaintiff had not been made on any particular contract, but on the whole work in hand. Mr Ollivier combatted this view of the case, on the plea that all the contracts were not only disjoined as well as takem at different periods, but the conditions and rates of pay were also different. After portion of the evidence had been taken the magistrate said he felt considerable doubt as to the question of jurisdiction, and as the absence of a material witness for plaintiff would prevent the case from being concluded at once he suggested a short adjournment. By mutual agreement Saturday next was fixed for the rehearing

The prosecutrix deposed that she had lived a most unhappy life with her husband, and had been obliged to leave the house and go to service. Some days ago she met the defendant, who said he would blow her brains out if she continued to go to Roe`s house at the Lower Hutt. In cross-examination by Mr Shaw, the witness said that she had deserted her husband for the purpose of living with Roe. She was not cohabiting with that person. She admitted that she had shown her daughter linen intended for a child about to be born, but denied she told the girl that it was for a child by Roe. She had been separated from her husband for over a year. At this stage Mr Travers said the revelation had taken him by surprise, and he did not intend to proceed further with it.
