        CAMPBELL v CAMPBELL Alexander Goodall Campbell (plain tiff) sought a dissolution of his mar riage with Hannah Josephine Camp bell on the ground of desertion. Mr. J. P. Quinn instructed by Mr. F. J. Ruddy (O'Sullivan and Ruddy) ap peared for the plaintiff. Maureen E. Murphy, clerk, gave evi dance as to the service of certain docu ments. Alfred Edgar W. Naught, deputy bailiff at Innisfail. stated that on May 3 he went to the Queen's Hotel, Innis fail, with Alexander Goodall Campbell and saw Mrs. Campbell. He had known both parties prior to this. Alexander Goodall Campbell, resid ing at East Palmerston, Innisfail. stated he was married to the defen dant in Brisbane on January 28, 1938. After their marriage they lived in Brisbane for about four months and then went to live at Innisfail in No vember 19, 1941. He later went to live at East Palmerston. He had pre viously been married in Melbourne In 1931, marrying a woman who believed she was in a certain condition. He had never lived with the woman and she had later obtained a divorce on the grounds of desertion. He had met the defendant at his mother's home when he went down to Pialba for a holiday. In May, 1938, he went to Innisfail and was engaged in cane cutting. The next year he succeeded in securing a mail contract and his wife said she wanted to run a boarding house end he secured one for her. However, at Christmas time she said she wanted to go for a holiday and two women were engaged to look after the boarding house for a short lime. His wife, however, did not return for about six months. In her letters she said she was not feeling too well and would return when she felt better. She returned in August or September 1940, but left again near Christmas. Saying she did not want to stay in Innisfail. and did not want to run the boarding house. She told him she was a fool to get married, she was too young and wanted to have a good time. At Christmas 1940. she went back to Brisbane and took the child with I her. Ho thought she was going to her mother's house and he sent her money. She came back again in June, 1941. with the child, and he purchased a dairy at Palmerston. He built a six roomed house and they lived there, selling the boarding house. In Febru- ary. 1942. his wife wanted to join the W.A.A.A.F.. but he refused to sign n consent. His wife then left, for Bris bane, but he did not allow her to take the child. He supported his. wife until October, 1942. In 1944 his wife came to Innisfail for about three weeks and said she would like to see the child. H told her she could have the child for week, but when he came in for the child he found they were both gone He wrote and told her if she did not return the child he would pet tho police to act. His wife came back to Innisfail, but did not bring the child. He went to Brisbane and saw his mother-in-law, who persuaded him to leave the child in school for a little while and he agreed. A month later he received a wire that the child was in hospital with whooping cough and advised him to come and get her. In January, 1945, he had a smash-up and had to get someone to run his mail contract. He saw hie wife again and she said she was in love with an Ameri- can naval officer. She expected to he going to Manila shortly, and he allowed her to see the child. His Honour gave judgment nisi for dissolution of the marriage to be made absolute at the expiration of three months.
