TIMELINE

RESIDENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT
DRNKENNESS
Hamilton J. Wiley, charge with the above offence, was fined 5s

Thursday 18 January 1865
DRUNKENNESS
Hamilton J. Wiley was again brought up, charged with lying drunk in the public streets. Fined 20s., in default committed for 48 hours

EVENING POST 11 November 1875
RESIENT MAGISTRATE'S COURT
THIS DAY (before J.C. Crawford, Esq., R.M.)
ASSAULT
A cross-action for assault between two old men, name Charles Clapham and Hamilton James Wiley created a good deal of amusement. It was complicated by the fact that both parties, and all their witnesses but one, were deaf. Mr Buckley appeared for Wiley.
According to Clapham's account, he was collecting his cows, which had strayed on Wiley's land, when the latter rushed at him, seized him by the throat, smacked his face to that extent that it was all the colours of the rainbow, and finally kicked him behind.
On this, witness said that if Wiley did that any more he should really be quite angry with him, and picked up a stick to defend himself, but he never struck Wiley with it; oh no, not he; he knew himself better
Wiley's story differed from that of his foe in a most remarkable manner. His view of the affair was that when Clapham was driving away the cows, he (witness) told him not to take away cattle without giving him notice. On this Clapham hit him on the head with a crooked stick, and afterwards fetched a big club (produced in Court) and struck him on the back with it. On this he did take Clapham by the collar and clap his ears for him.
Mrs Wiley, who was as deaf as her husband and his enemy, corroborated his statement and flourished the club about in a very striking manner, to illustrate Clapham's iniquities.
On being asked if he had any question to put, the defendant Clapham replied, "It's all false, villainous false!"
An independent witness was called. On his being sworn, the crier (who hitherto had been acting as an interpreter, and had become exceedingly hoarse under the vocal exertion required) asked him if he were deaf too, but the witness indignantly responded, "No!" in a stentorian voice, which frightened the whole Court into fits. He entirely confirmed the Wiley's tale. His worship dismissed the charge against Wiley and fined Clapham 10s and costs, with the alternative of 48 hours imprisonment, remarking that probably there would be fewer rows in that neighbourhood if the people were not so singularly dear and therefore apt to mistake one another's words.

NZ TRUTH 3 August 1907 (son)
Ham Wiley, of Carterton, departed for Logan City, Utah, three months ago, after embracing the Mormon faith. Ham took his family with him, which is a matter that may not bear complete investigation, for, however pleasant polygamy may be, from the point of view of the man, there are some girls who have a natural objection to sharing their husband's affections with another hussy. It must be confessed, however, that Ham's daughter Lizzie doesn't look forward to the future with anything like dread, judging by a letter written by her to a Dalefield resident. The steamer trip appears to have been excellent. The party was accompanied by six elders and four more elders, and a native sister came aboard at Samoa. At Honolulu another contingent joined the steamer, when the Mormon party totalled twelve elders and eleven saints. The letter didn't mention the division of the sexes, unless the saints are girls, but the assumption is that the elders were sinners. Lizzie finds Logan City quite a nice place, and hopes the Lord will gather in her Dalefield friend to Zion

In August 1892 William wrote this testimonial to the makers of HITCHEN BLOOD RESTORER:
... Karangahape Road, Auckland, August 25th, 1892
In justice to you I think it only right that others should know what a wonderful change has been effected in me by the use of Hitchen`s Blood Restorer, In Janury, 1890, when in Melbourne, I caught a severe cold, and had to lay up for five months. Several doctors whom I consulted told me that before I could recover I must run the risk of having an operation performed on my liver, that no medicine they could give me would do any good. I came back to Auckland and consulted several medical men, who said they could not do me any good, but advised me to go into the country. I went to Helensville, where I met Mr Bassett. He advised me to take Hitchen`s Blood Restorer, saying, "It cured me when I had been informed that there was no hope for me". I am glad that I took his advise, for I am to-day thoroughly cured, and can do a day`s work as well as even I did in my life. Anyone wishing to verify the above statements can find me any working day at Mr Adler`s Coach Factory, Upper Queen Street, when I will be happy to give a detailed statement. - I remain, faithfully yours, WILLIAM SPINLEY, Body-maker. I certify the above to be correct - H.A. ADLER, Coach-builder
