Mrs. Lottie Bleakley Returns to
Kansas With Babe in
IS WELL PREPARED OPINION
Attorneys Comment Upon Dissertation
By Judge Graves on Law of the
Case at Bar.
M. C. R.ICE, Prop.
H-iH--H'-I-H-H-I"H-1 ! I' I I I I I 1 I I 1 I I I I m4
Mrs. Ittie fcleakley and her child.
Edith Bleakley. have departed for
iawrence, Kans., the home of the
mother, this fallowing the order of the
court that the babe should be restored
to its natural parent, whom he held
was Mrs. Bleckley.
Well lrrpairril Opinion.
Lawyers aloiu the court room this
morning could be heard commenting up
n the excelltncy of the opinion pre
pared by Judge Graves in inis involved
case. A portion of this is. piven below,
but the judge gave nnich orally with
out reference to what he had prepared
in writing, going to the bottom with
every point. On account of the wide
spread interest in ihi.s ca.se. because of
its sensational ft attires, its points of
law, which, when decided upon must
be enforced, and the touching phases
of the case, The Argus gives in this
connection the reasons ot the court
for taking from Mr. and Mrs. Harclay
of Moline the child of their supposed
adoption and awarding it to the natur
V. R. Moore, of Moline, assisted by
Walter Saunders of St. Ixjiiis, conduct
ed the case for Mrs. Weakley, the at
torneys for Mr. and Mrs. Harclay being
Tturton K. I'eek and C. E. Dietz of Mo
line, H. M. McCaskrin of Kock Island
and X. P. Wiilley of St. Louis.
;--iilon of I'aperH.
With reference- to the execution of
adoption papers, the court said:
"To be effective, to entitle the re
spondents to the custody of the child,
the deed must be executed and ac
knowledged by the natural parents as
well as the adoptive parents; and not
only must it be executed and acknowl
edged by both the natural and adoptive
parents, but it must be executed, ac
knowledged and recorded in the coun
ty of the residence of the person ex
editing the Hiinie.
This statute, of course, only applies
to Ihe execution, acknowledgment am
recording of sueb instruments in Mi
state of Missouri, and it is not claime
that the relator or her husband execu
ted or acknowledged the instrument ii
anv coimtv in the state of Missouri, or
that it was recorded in any county in
tin- state of Missouri wherein they or
either of theiu were resident, either
teniporarv or permanent. Neither was
it recorded in any county in the state
when and where the respondents were
resident, either temporary or per ma
"Again, the residence of the parent
carries with it the residence of th
child, and. loth parents of this chil
being resident in Kansas, the residence
'of the child was also in Kansas, and
for that reason was out f the reach
if the force and effect of the statute
of the Ktate of Missouri."
InfrrrxtK of hllii.
After disposing of the Question of
contract, the court took up anoth
phase lie was bound to observe, am
asked: "What Is the best interests o
this child? Should it be allowed to r
main in the custody of the respondents
or should it be turned over to the cus
id of the mother?
What, in fact, is for the best inter
ests of this child. Jod. in His intinite
wisdom, only knows. Ihe best a court
can do is speculation on the basis of
known facts and the experience of
"So far as is shown by the evidence
there is no considerable difference b
tween the relator and the respondents
either in the matter of morals, educa
'ion, or social or financial standi ti
ach express, and, I have no doubt, en
'ertain great affection for the child
Ik tlir Mnthrr.
"Ihe relator, I a:n satisfied, is the
mother of the child. Her child was
born ou the l.lih dav of February, in
he house of the midwife, Mrs. Merri
held, m St. Iynus, Mo. This child was
born on that day in that place,
daughter of th relator was tiny
blonde :this child was the same,
child was of premature birth; so
:his child. Mrs. Mernneld told the re-
later her child was dead; she told Dr
Durford it was alive; she told Mr.
Thompson it was dead. She put this
child in charge of the managers of the
ncubator company at the world s fair.
ind. told those people it was the child
f the relator ;she told Mrs. Harclay
;he child was the relator's and where
ihe relator lived.
. !oltlr Xiilhr.
"There seems to have been a possi
Ie motive for the midwife to tell Mrs.
Bleakley her child was dead; she could
jnd did coll. ft the price of a grave and
oftin. which evidently were never
is.-d. Again, she mutt have known
here was a demand for prematurely
orn names at the incubator conces-
ion at the exposition, for before the
air was opfn she had reported this
aby to true doctor in charge of thp in
ubator while it was legated down
own. and th doctor had sent Miss
Oily t get the haby. Whether a price
vas fa-d tier, the evidence does not
iisclnse, but it is evident they wanted
hiidren of that kind, and they obtain-
d this one."
