    " From the " Darling Downs Gazette" we take tho following particulars of a case heard on Tuesday last in the Toowoomba Police Court, before Captain Goodall,P.M. : Daniel Bain, trustee in the insolvent estate of William Lovejoy, proceeded against the insolvent for omitting to keep proper books of account to how the true state of affairs. Mr. C. W. Hamilton appeared for the trustee, and Mr. R. Dodd for the defendant, Wiliam Lovejoy. In the course of his evidence Mr. Bain produced the depositions of the insolvent. He noticed in the depositions receipt for sale of land, £450, to Frederick Wockner, Meringandan. This was on tho 6th June, 1896. Defendant had shown witness no book of account show- ing the dealings with that money ; had asked him for it. In the deposition produced was the explanation of the disposal of that money. He said the property was mortgaged. None of the alleged ways of disposal of the money appeared in his book of account (book produced). By Mr. Dodd : Mr. Lovejoy stated he was doing very little business in Goombungee-in fact, the business was so small It was no use keep- ing books. No evidence was called for the defence. Defendant was committed to take his trial at the Circuit Court to bo held in Too- woomba on the 1st March, bail being allowed, defendant in the sum of £40 and one surety of £40.
    Defendant was also committed for trial on a charge of having unlawfully and with intent to defraud his creditors made a gift of £30 to his wife, being part of a sum of £190, the proceeds of the sale of a hotel at Goombungee. The trustee, in his evidence, stated that In the depositions of his examination in insolvency the defendant swore he gave to his wife £30 to provide for herself and children during her confine- ment. Witness had been directed to make this prosecution by the committee of in- spection In the estate. By Mr. Dodd : Defendant also swore that £2 10s. of the £30 he gave was expended in purchasing a bullock from Mr. J. H. Ball, which was killed and the meat used for his household, and since his insolvency his household ex- penses had been paid out of the £30 he gave his wife. Defendant afterwards gave evidence in his own behalf, in the course of which he said : When I said that I gave my wife £30, I did not mean I counted out £30 to her. She asked me for money for use in connection with the household expenses ; told her she knew where it was, and to take what she wanted. My wife left Toowoomba on the I6th December, 1895, and had bought no drapery for the family until just previous to my Insolvency. Have nine children. We keep a servant My wife buys provisions in bulk. Was sued by Backhouse and Co., Brisbane, and they obtained Judgment against me about June or May, 1896. Under that Judgment Backhouse and Co. caused me to be ar- rested. It was reported I was leaving the colony. Do not know of any other cause of my arrest. Was confined in the Toowoomba Gaol for a few nights. For the purpose of obtaining my release, signed the petition for my in- solvency. Had it not been for my arrest and insolvency I would not have gone Insolvent. Had I time to look to my affairs I believe I had sufficient property to obtain a good livelihood and liquidate my debts. Ho was also cross-examined at some length, and was then committed for trial, as already stated."
  • On 18 February 1899 The Brisbane Courier reported :- "In the matter of Wm. Lovejoy, of Goombungee, farmer, &c, insolvent, Mr. Hawthorn (Messrs. Macdonald-Paterson and Hawthorn) applied under section 168 for a certificate of discharge to be granted to the insolvent. The insolvent attributed his Insolvency to unforeseen expenses incurred in contesting Aubigny seat at the last general elections, and to loss of credit owing to his arrest for the non-payment of a debt.
    His Honour remarked that every one had a right to become a member of Parliament, but whether he had the right to contest an election on credit he did not know. The late Mr. Justice Harding decided that if a man went insolvent through starting a law- suit without the prospect of being able to pay the reasonable costs of the proceedings his insolvency was not occasioned by causes for which be could not bo held responsible. He questioned whether the same principle ought not to be applied to a man who contested an election without a reasonable prospect of getting in. He asked whether Mr. Lovejoy wanted to contest the seat at the approaching election.
    Mr. Hawthorn assured his Honour that his client had had enough of it. The real cause of his troubles was that his arrest de- stroyed his credit and prevented him from retrieving his position.
    His Honour granted the certificate."
