  • On 17 November 1871 William Wilkes and Joseph Cossart were charged with removing timber from a Crown Reserve without have a license. On the 18th they appeared in Court. The Toowoomba Chronicle and Advertiser reported:-""Joseph Cossart and William Wilkes appeared in custody charged with stealing timber, the property of Martin Meldon. Mr. Ocock appeared for the complainant. It appeared from the evidence that Meldon missed some cedar logs from Perseverance Scrub which he claimed as his properly, and saw one of the logs on a dray. He applied for and obtained a search warrant, and on Saturday last he in company with Constable Delamer went to the above scrub, where they saw two drays loaded with cedar In the possession of Joseph Cossart and William Wilkes; of these logs Meldon claimed one on one dray and three on the other as his property Cossart and Wilkes were apprehended and taken to the Toowoomba lockup, and the drays were also taken into Toowoomba. Meldon, In his evidence before the Court, said he knew the timber was his by a particular mark, that he valued it at £10, that It might have been cut seven or eight months, that he helped to cut the big log with Matthew McDermott, and the other logs with Joe Hoey, Jenkins, and other men. Henry Kahler deposed to cutting timber for Meldon, with other men, seven or eight months ago, and helping to brand the logs in the latter end of April- three of the logs on the dray outside the Courthouse was part of the timber then cut and branded. Matthew McDermott corroborated the evidence of Meldon, and stated the big log outside the Court was one that he helped Meldon to cut six or seven months ago. Matthias Graham deposed: l am a carrier; I employed Cossart and Wilkes to take the timber outside the Court from Perseverance Scrub to Mr Cocks' saw mill to Toowoomba ; I helped them to load it, and told them to deliver it at Cocks' yard to my order; the timber was felted by Harry Wynyard over three years ago; his brands were on the timber at the butts of the logs; the butts have- been cut off; I purchased the timber from Wynyard about three years ago; I did not see the timber, but he authorised me to take the timber with his brand ; I saw his brand on the logs now outside the Court; I saw Meldon and his men cutting the part of the big log now outside the Court on which the brand was; I believe the timber outside the Court to be my property. Cross-examined by Mr. Ocock I have known Wynyard four or five years ; he lived at Highfields when I purchased the timber; he did not deliver any Umber- he told me to take It; I paid him £1 for the timber; Wynyard did not tell me bow many logs he had In the scrub ; I saw these logs In the scrub eight or nine months ago; Meldon's men were there at the time- Harry Kahler was one of them ; I saw them cutting the butt of the big log and gave them notice not to touch any timber with the WH brand; they cut off the butt;, Wynyard is in the colony ; I saw him not long ago; he Is out of town now ; I hold a timber license which I renew half-yearly. The witness was told by the Police Magistrate that he could refuse to answer any question that might incriminate himself Martin Meldon recalled: I did not fell the tree from which the large log was taken ; there Is not a tree standing in the scrub that is any good: I believe they have all been felled over seven years; by cutting the log I mean I cut the tree Into lengths fit for removing; I did not cut off any brands to my knowledge ; I cut the logs believing them to be the property of the Government and I being duly licensed to cut and remove timber; Graham never cautioned me not to cut off brands; he offered to purchase from me the very timber he now claims. The prisoners were discharged from custody."2,3
