    • The appellant deposed that during the 2 1/2 years he lived with his wife he had an interest in a sheep run at Tenui, and on leaving it he received 1500, which he invested in a store in the district.
      In 1880 his wife wanted to live in Wellington, and giving her some money he went to Patea, where he got a billet as stockman at 80 a year and food. After he had been there some time he was arrested, brought down to Wanganui, and an order made against him for the maintenance of his wife.
      He was now in partnership with the natives at Inland Patea. There were two mortgages on the sheep and cattle, and it took him all his time to find the interest. He put no money into the partnership. If the order of the Magistrate was enforced he would have to go to gaol, as he could not find securities. There were on the estate 13,000 or 14,000 sheep, and a number of head of cattle. The mortgages were for 6000 and 4500. The land and buildings belonged to the Maoris.
      He was now living with a Maori woman, by whom he had had two children. She was one of the owners of the land.
      When he was served with a divorce petition he instructed a lawyer in Napier to defend the action, and he was very much surprised when he found his wife bad abandoned the proceedings.
