PREFERRED THE GREENGROCER "I am satisfied that I have jurisdiction in this case, for although the parties were married in England, and the alleged offence was committed there, the petitioner is now domiciled in this State, and has a right to take the proceedings", his Honor said in granting a decree nisi returnable in six months to Frederick William Montandon. Mr. H.C.F. Keall, who appeared for the petitioner, presented evidence on affidavit. According to it Mrs. Montandon had admitted she was co-habiting with a man named Rawlinson, and when notice of proceedings were served on her she had replied "Tell him I won't go back to him". The petitioner, who is a timber worker at Millars' Workshop Mill, said he was married in 1898 in Hololway [sic] and he and his wife lived in Essex happily. Prior to enlisting in 1914 his wife used to return home drunk, but where she went to he never knew. One day in March 1914, she left and went to Southend-on-Sea. He there saw her with Rawlinson, a greengrocer. After he was demobilised in July 1919, he came to Australia, bringing two of his three children with him. He had been unable to institute divorce proceedings earlier because of his financial position. To his Honor the petitioner said the reason his wife left him in March was because he had questioned her about keeping company with a man.

An English case. Frederick William Montandon and his wife were' married in England in 1895. The, husband who' came to Australia in 1920 with his two youngest, children, petitioned yesterday for a dissolution of his marriage on the ground of miscon duct by his wife, Rose, in England, com mencing in 1914. His Honour decided that, as the petitioner was now perman ently, domiciled in Australia, he had the right to take proceedings here. Peti tioner explained that the delay was due to his want of money. He was now a timber worker, employed at Wokalup. In March, 1914, when he and his wife were living in Essex (England), they quarrelled because of his protest- about her going out with W. Rawlinson and she left him. He saw her later with Rawlinson (cited as co-respondent in yesterday's action) at Southend but up to the time of his (petitioner's) enlist ment in November, 1914, he did not dis cover anything definite about their re- lations. He was discharged in July 1919, and then had to look after his four children. One had since died, the, eldest was 'in service' in England, and the remaining two (16 and 14 years old now) had come with him to Australia. An affidavit covering the result of in quiries about Mrs. Montandon and Raw linson was read. They were living to gether, it was stated, and the respondent had said: 'Tell my husband I don't want him and won't go back to him.' - His Honour granted a decree nisi, re turnable in six months.
