On July 23d last in the Superi
or Court of Sun Fiuucisco, Judgo
Hobhard granted Lizzio M. Dng
golt a divorce from Eollin M.
Daggett on tho ground of tho de
fendant's wilful neglect in failing
to provide for his wife, says Tho
Call. Tho portios wore married
in Oaklaud, October 3, 1883. As
Mrs. Daggett is .abundantly nblo
to .care for horsolf by reason of
her own private fortune, tho hus
band's nllegod neglect has not
boon a hardship from a material
point of view.
Tho defendant in this Btiit is a
wellkuowu public man. He gnin
ed quite a reputation as a writer
of ability on tho Nevada press in
tho early sovonties. He was
elected to Congress from that
State and served with distinction.
Mr. Daggett was appointed
United States Minister to Hawaii
undor tho Garfield administration,

in whoso favor tho divorco was
granted, yho was a tourist, -who
owned considerable property in
Southern California, and was

and the Minister had similar
tastes and inclinations, and so an
attachment for oach othor was
formed, which. culininated in tho

His duties ns United States

ing tlieir station'. Ho was
gracious in the bestowal oi hos
pitality to their honored guests,
and ho likowiso was hold in high
esteem by his follow-countrymoii
and tho people of Hawaii. She
had largorosonrces of money nnd
property in her own right, and ho
was in receipt of his official sala
ry and also of hums of money
oamed by his gifted pou in
literary lines. King Kalakaua
and Minister Daggett collaborat
ed and delightful productions,
full of islantl traditions nifd poo
try, wore tho result.
Shortly after President Cleve
land was chosen to rulo ovor tho
destinies of this country a Demo
crat was appointed Unitod States
Minister to Hawaii to succeed Mr.
Daggett. Mr. Dnggott, accompa
nied by his wife, returned to tho
United States. Ho had an ambi
