Henry Victor Morgan ncknow leges
having received a certified copy of the
complaint for dhorce filed by his wife,
Chrlstlno Morgan, which was sent to
him In California by order, of tho Court.
He replies at length to her allegations.
Her charges that during their entire
married life, and especially thrco years
prior to tho beginning of the divorce
suit, tho defendant was of sufficient
ability to provldo maintenance for the
plaintiff but neglected nnd refused to
do so, though earning on an average.
three dollars a day as a wood-worker
and carriage-builder, he declares to be
false In certain particulars. When he
married Mrs. Morgan ho was engaged
as pastor of the First Christian
Church, Alameda, California, and bad
been In tho Christian ministry for four
lears preceding their marriage.
Mr. Morgan alleges that during the
entlro period of their married life he
was in poor health, suffering Intensely
from violent headaches. In Septem
ber, 189S, his wife nnd himself accept
ed an Invitation from Mrs. Morgan's
rtrents to visit them In Honolulu and
remain until his. health was restored.
On arrival he immediately began
preaching for tho church at Ewa plan
tation and part of the time nt Pearl
City. In January, 1899, ho believes,
his wife's father, 11. J. Rhodes, and
himself teased six acres of land In Ma-
noa. For somo months he worked on
the land with his fathcr-ln-law, comln
ulng to preach on Sundays at tho
places already mentioned. It was not
until May, 1900, that ho returned to
work at his trade of carriage building
for tho Honolulu Stockyards Company.
Op the 14th of Juno following he
was taken down with typhoid fever
and attended by Dr. W. E. Taylo. Aft
er Ills Blow recovery ho went back to
his trade, but was not In constant em
ployment until January, 1901. Other
Illness ensued from which he obtained
no relief until leaving Honolulu In Ju
ly, 1901. In the meantime he had b

money earned by him during this tlmo
was spentr afty providing the neces
saries of life. In paying off debt. Ho
was also paying Professor Cook for
'music lessons to Mrs. Morgan.
Defendant has no rcmembranco of
the number of dresses provided for
Mis. Morgan, but has no recollection
of clothing bought for her by her par
ents. During tho three months preced
ing his departure from Honolulu In
July, 1901, his maladies Increased to
such an extent that Mrs. Morgan told
111 in imp feared for Mb sanity. It wna
not until this tlmo that he noticed his
wife had grown dissatisfied. She beg
ged him to lcavo for tuo Coast In
search of restoration, while Dr. Taylor
advised htm to consult an oculist, as
he believed tho headaches and rtls-
turbed mental condition might be at
tributed to nye disorder. -
Mrs. Morgan's sworn assertion that
slnco July, 1901, ho had contributed
but $20 to the biipport of herself and
their children, his neglect compelling
ner to iivo on the charity of her par
ents, he says Is not true. He had left
her $20 In cash and accounts duo him,
which ho specifies, amounting to $40
and made payablo to Mrs. Morgan. Re
sides, he arranged beforo leaving for
credit at a grocery store, under which
he had a bill for $21.90 for groceries

that, according to her ownt lexers, his
wife wants a divorce for a rcftson (lit

plaint. Therefore he prays;
