  • 3 Dec 1896, METROPOLITAN BOARD OF WORKS. Cr Wilkins desired to be informed whether the Board had entered into negotiations for a renewal of the lease of the present offices; also whether, in the appointment of engineers and fire men, the Board had decided to only employ marine engineers. The Mayor replied that the Engineer had submitted plans, prepared outside at a cost of £15, which provided for the erection of a building to cost £14,300. Personally he considered that suitable premises could be built for £12,000 but he would prefer to take the Rialto for another three years. Gr. Gahan, replying to the second question, said that the Board were appointing marine engineers for the reason that they were better fitted by experience to deal with the large engines and boilers of the sewage works.
    Cr. Hooper failed to see why ordinary engineers could not fill the positions.
    Cr. Gaban: Of all the councillors in the chamber, Cr. Hooper, by reason of being a brass-founder, should know that what I have remarked relative to marine engineers is correct. It appears to me that Cr. Hooper is glad to come here to find fault with what he cannot mend. As on other occasions, he has shown that he knows nothing about the matter. With regard to the question of erecting new offices, the plans were prepared outside, because the Engineer could not spare the time, and the civil engineers employed by the Board were not competent to draw them. Cr. Keele: Have you no architects ? Cr. Gahan: Yes, I regret to say there are architects working for the Board in the capacity of common laborers; to such a condition has the stress of bad times reduced the members of an honorable profession. Surprise would be expressed if, in the event of the Board deciding to erect new offices, they got the work done for £10,000. He trusted the Mayor, as his colleague on the Board, would alter his views.19

  • 2 Mar 1908, AN UNSUSTAINED CHARGE. COLLINGWOOD EX-COUNCILLOR INVOLVED. John Hooper, formerly a Collingwood councillor, and a brass founder of Melbourne, was brought before the Collingwood court on Friday charged with disobeying an order of the court and intending leave Victoria.
    Rebecca Hooper, wife of defendant, gave evidence that she obtained a maintenance order for 30/ per week against defendant in March, 1903. She was paid until 24th September, 1907. A cheque she received on 11th October was bad. She had re ceived no money from her husband since then.
    Mr. Doria (for the defence): Have you sold a house lately?— Yes; I got £950; but there was a mortgage for £1100.
    Have you instituted divorce proceedings?— Yes.
    An agreement was produced for the defence showing that Mrs. Hooper had consented to accept £50 in full settlement of all claims against Wm. Woods, who became surety for the payment of the maintenance.
    Mr. Joseph (for Mrs. Hooper) held that the agreement only related to the surety, and not to the order.
    Constable Haigh stated that he arrested defend ant on the Australian Wharf on 5th inst. He had a second class single ticket to Port Adelaide per the Grantala, and had fifteen packages on board in the name of J. Allen. He had 115 sove- reigns and some odd money in his pockets. De fendant said he was going away on business. The case was dismissed.21

  • 5 May 1908, HOOPER V. HOOPER. Rebecca Hooper (50), of South Terrace, Clifton Hill, asked for divorce from John Wm. Hooper (52), brass founder, on the ground of desertion. Mr. Josephs appeared for the petitioner (in structed by Mr. Wm. Brockett). The marriage was celebrated on 30th August, 1877, by the Rev. R. Barlow (Church of England), at Footscray, and there were ten children, now aged from 30 to 13. The pair had lived in Carlton, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Clifton Hill and Northcote. In 1882, said the petitioner, her husband suffered from a certain disease, but they lived on together. In 1884 his father took him into partnership, and then, being in receipt of more money than before, he stayed away from home at times. She taxed him with misconduct, and he assented to the impeachment, but promised reform. He maintained a semblance of respectability until 1896, when his father died, and then he openly kept another woman. Witness condoned all his offences for the sake of the children, but he grew worse and worse, until 3rd February, 1902, when they parted. On that date she remonstrated, and he said he would go away from her altogether. He then left and never returned. In March, 1903, he was ordered by the Collingwood bench to pay £1 per week for her own maintenance and 7/6 per week for each child under age. A decree nisi was granted, with costs, and the custody of the two youngest children. The question of alimony was reserved.23
  • 5 May 1908, HOOPER V. HOOPER. Rebecca Hooper, of Clifton Hill, sought, on the grounds of desertion, a dissolution of her marriage with John Hooper, of the same place, ironfounder. Mr. Josephs appeared for the petitioner. The parties were married in August, 1877, and there were ten surviving children of the marriage, three of whom were under age. The parties lived on good terms until 1884, but from that time on respondent began to neglect the petitioner. In 1902, petitioner said, their marital relations ceased, and soon after respondent left the house. He allowed her at first £4 a week, later £3, and finally £2. She had seen the respondent about the streets very frequently since with a particular woman.
    A decree nisi was granted, with costs, the petitioner to have the custody of the two younger children. The question of alimony was deferred.24
