  • 9 Nov 1904, Berwick Police Court ; TUESDAY October 26. Before Mr Cresswell, PM., and F. G.Hartley, J.P. - M. L. Trickey v. W. G. Goetz for assault. Mr. Candy for plaintiff, Mr. Ireland for defendant.
    Mrs. Trickey stated.--My daughter went to defendant's place with a letter and was spoken to roughly by Goetz. Went to defendant's place and asked him why he had insulted my daughter? He told me to go off, and hit me on the side of the head ; he tried to ... me in the stomach, which I prevented with my hand, which was bruised.
    To Mr. Ireland.-I am housekeeper to Mr Hooper. He is a married man not living with his wife ; I am a married woman not living with my husband.
    Lennie Trickey stated.-I was sent to Mr. Goetz with a letter from Mr. Hooper. Goetz told me Hooper was a fool, and looked about to get a ... I did not put my fingers to my nose at Goetz. I am not in the habit of doing so.
    Molly M'Hugh deposed.- I went with Lennie Trickey to Goetz's place with the letter. He was in his garden. Lennie gave him the letter, and asked if there was an answer. He told her to tell Hooper" to do what he liked—he was a confounded fool." We went to go when Goetz ran after us and ordered us off. Lenie picked her dog up and we ran away.
    To Mr. Ireland.-I went with Lennie for company. I did not know the contents of the letter except it was something about a drain. Albert Watts stated.-On the day in question I was chopping wood .. hill, when a noise about three chains away attracted my attention. I Iooked and saw Goetz rush at Mrs. Trickey and kick her. She put her hand d.. Goetz then put his arm round her ... she tried to get away. There were a few fruit trees between me and the parties. I was then in Hooper's employ. I subsequently saw defendant's daughters, and told them that I would give evidence in the case. They ... not tell me that I could not see for ... fruit trees.
    To Mr. Ireland.-When I first ... Mrs. Trickey she was outside Goetz's gate, but on his land.
    Wm Goetz stated.-I am a farmer and engineer. For years had been good friends with Hooper; knew his wife ; and also knew that Mrs. Trickey was living at his place. Told him I did not want her at my place. The girl gave me the letter and went ... about half a chain. I read it and remarked that Hooper was a fool. She laughed at me, and I threatened to pull her ear if she did not go away. Afterwards Mrs. Trickey came up and stood at my gate. I said, "Please madam, go away." She called me offensive names, and I again ordered her to go. I pushed her off at the gate, but she pulled up her sleeves and said "come on !" I said no; she then made offensive gestures, and I said " Go home, you rubbish." Mr. Hooper was a good friend to me ; I had nothing against him. My daughter Kate was present.
    Kate Goetz said.-I know Mrs. Trickey; had no conversation with her about her daughter coming on my (witness) father's land. Was in the garden when the two girls brought the letter to my father, and asked if there was an answer. He replied that there was, and to tell Hooper that he could not alter the run of the water as it was in its natural course. He called her a larrikiness, and told her not to come there any more. He said Hooper was a confounded fool. The girls started laughing and shouted " Hurrah !" he told Lennie Trickey that he would pull her ear if he caught her, on which both girls ran away. Lennie Trickey put her fingers to her nose. I do not think Lennie Trickey is a quiet girl.
    To Mr. Ireland.--My sister Bertha was near when Mrs. Trickey came round. Bertha said, " Oh, dada, don't ... when Mrs. Trickey raised her arm and father caught hold of it and pulled her round . During the row Mrs. Trickey said father got hundreds of pounds from Hooper. She said that she came to see him because he threatened her daughter. Father said "'There's the road, madam, go." She came towards him and raised her hand. He caught her arm and shewed her down the hill. She tucked up her sleeves and said "Come on." He replied, "Your class of women are never afraid. I don't fight women." She put her fingers on her nose. Father again told her to " Go." She replied," you little wretch when I catch you I'll kill you. The disturbance lasted half an hour. Mrs Trickey could have gone away any time.
    The Bench considered the case ... proved, and fined defendant £3, with £2/10 costs.10

  • 9 Feb 1929, Following a collision on the Prince's Highway, between Beaconsfield and Officer, William Shadbolt, of South Melbourne, is claiming £1,000 damages jointly from Arthur B. Davy, of Upper Beaconsfield, hire-car proprietor, and Miss Alice Bullman, of Narre Warren North, motor-car proprietor.22
  • 9 Feb 1929, CLAIM FOR £1,000 DAMAGES. TWO MOTOR-CAR OWNERS SUED. Accident Near Beaconsfield.
    Driving in a jinker along the Prince's Highway, between Beaconsfield and Officer, on December 26, 1927, William Shadbolt, of Ward-street, South Melbourne, printer's machinist, was thrown out in consequence of a motor-car driven by Arthur B. Davy, of Upper Beaconsfield, hire-car proprietor, striking the jinker in the rear. Just before the impact Davy's motor-car had collided with one owned by Miss Alice Bullman, of Narre Warren North, motor-car proprietor.
    Before Judge Wasley, in the Criminal Court yesterday, Shadbolt brought an action claiming £1,000 damages jointly from Davy and Miss Bullman. Included in the sum was £88/7/6 medical expenses and loss of wages. Shadbolt pleaded that he had a hurricane lamp on his vehicle. Night had fallen at the time of the accident. Davy was negligent in that he had driven at an excessive speed, that he had attempted to pass the junker when another motor-car was about to pass, and had failed to apply the brakes or stop in sufficient time. The negligence urged against the driver of Miss Bullman's car was that no proper lookout was kept, that the car was driven on the wrong side of the road and at an excessive speed, and that the driver had failed to allow sufficient room for the car of the other defendant to pass. Shadbolt pleaded that he had sustained concussion of the brain, and was injured about the head and other parts of his body.
    Davy denied negligence, and alleged contributory negligence, in that Shadbolt had driven the jinker after dark without sufficient lights. Miss Bullman denied all the allegations in the statement of claim in so far as they implicated herself.
    Mr Magennis and Mr Stafford (instructed by Messrs W.B. and O. McCutcheon) appeared for the plaintiff. Mr Menzies (instructed by Mr J. P. Rhoden) appeared for Miss Bullman, and Dr Ellis (instructed by Messrs Hamilton, Wynne, and Riddell) appeared for Davy.
    The hearing had not concluded when the Court rose.23
  • 15 Feb 1929, VERDICT FOR £470. JUDGMENT AGAINST CAR-OWNER. Second Defendant Succeeds.

Davy, of Upper Beaconsfield motor car proprietor and Miss Alice Bullman of Narre Warren North, motorcar proprietor. Shadbolt was driving a jinker along the Princes Highway between Beaconsfield and Officer on December 26, 1927, when he was thrown out of his jinker in consequence of a motor car driven by Davy striking the jinker in the rear. Just before the impact Davy' s motor-car had collided with one owned by Miss Bullman. Shadbolt took action against both Davy and Miss Bullman pleading negligence in each case. Both Davy and Miss Bullman denied negligence.
    Mr.Maginnis and Mr. Stafford (instructed by Messrs. W. B. and O. McCutcheon) appeared for plaintiff; Mr Menzies K.C., and Mr. Read (instructed by Mr. J. P. Rhoden) appeared for Miss Bullmans: and Dr. Ellis (instructed by Messrs. Hamilton, Wynne, and Riddell) appeared for Davy.
    The jury returned a verdict for plaintiff as against Davy, and assessed damages at £470. Judgement was entered for the amount with costs. Plaintiff was ordered to pay Miss Bullman's costs, but he was given the right to recover the amount from Davy.24
  • 14 Jun 1937, Killed by Car.
