against the wife and the friend, in the
testimony and formal charges in
court.
This damage suit is a sequel of the
divorce proceedings of Mrs. Adams
against her husband, Edward S.
Adams, in which Mrs. Adams secur
ed a decree on March 6, 1914, on the
grounds of habitual drunkenness.
Adams now charges in his declara
tion filed in Superior Court Friday
that McCormick, who had lived at the
Robert R. McCormick.
Adams home, sought to induce
Adams to make no defense in the di
vorce case; and that Adams then did
not make any defense, but ignored
the suit while his wife got a decree.
Adams charges that on August 5,
1909, and repeatedly since that time
McCormick has sought the society of
Mrs. Adams and made love to her and
induced her to separate from' and
abandon her husband; and that, dur
ing the pendency of the divorce pro
ceedings, Adams did not know of the
intimacy which he now charges ex
isted between McCormick and Mrs.
Adams.
Adams says in his declaration that
during the summer of 1904 McCor
mick made his home with the
Adamses in Chicago, and beginning
with 1910 made his summer home
with the Adamses at Lake Forest un
til November, 1913, all of which time
McCormick accepted the hospitality
of Adams as a membei of his family.
He charges that McCormick "ma
liciously debauched and carnally
knew the said Amy Irwin Adams"
both at Tower Court in Chicago and
at the Adams home an Deerpath ave
nue in Lake Forest.
In the declaration, Adams says:
"For that whereas, the plaintiff (Ed
ward S. Adams) on the 15th day of
April, 1895, married" Amy Irwin Ad
ams and from thesce until Novem
ber, 1913, lived with her in Chicago
and in Lake Forest, HI., and the plain
tiff avers that in the summer of 1904
the defendant, Robert R. McCormick,
'made his home with the plaintiff at
Chicago and beginning in the year of
1910 also made his home with the
plaintiff during the summer season
at Lake Forest and during all of said
times and at said places so made his
home with the plaintiff as a member
of .the plaintiff's family and during
all of said times accepted the hos
pitality of the plaintiff, and the de
fendant, Robert R. McCormick, wick
edly contriving and maliciously in
tending to deprive the plaintiff of the
society and services of the said Amy
Irwin Adams, the plaintiff's wife, and
to alienate and destroy her affection
for the plaintiff, which affection the
plaintiff then had, continuously
sought the society of the said Amy
Irwin Adams and made love to her
and the plaintiff avers that during
said time the defendant on divers oc
casions, at the home of the plaintiff
on Tower Court in the city of Chi
cago, without the knowledge and
consent of the plaintiff, wrongfully
