THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER i3, 1909.
' UNFIT TO WED;
,r" LIVE ON CHARITY
Miss Dina Kainscr, Probation
.Officer,- Discusses Laxity
'. of Marriage Laws.
iS A SERIOUS QUESTION
Families in Rock lhiml Supported by
Organizations Legislation Is
: "One of the most serious phases
of charitable work is directly attrib
" utable to the laxity of the restric
tions surrounding the marriage laws
of our state," Mls L'ina Ramser, pro
bate officer of the Kock Island county
courts said following the meeting of
the Associated Charities last Monday.
"I have now in mind three families
. that are a charge upon the charitable
."organizations of this city. Neither
, of the marriages of the couples re
ferred to should have been permitted
to take place. Tli. y were unfit phys
ically and mentally. They have
(brought into the world children who
are mentally deficient. The fathers
are unable to work steadily, and
when they do obtain employment!
they are dismissed as soon as their
shortcomings are detected. Employ
ers do not permit sentiment to creep
into the conduct of their business.
They will tell us. when we have some
unfortunate for whom we desire to
obtain a place, that they help sus
tain county and state institutions for
the care of the indigent and afflicted.
They can't afford to have irresponsi
bles in their places. This is logical
argument. Yet we must care for
these men on account of their fam
ilies. Slinpliton Are Wedded.
"I have in mind a particularly piti
ful case. The girl was under age.
The young man was without a trade.
Both were simple minded. Both their
. : families live in hovels. They decided
one day that they would marry. The
young man's earthly possessions in
money aggregated $1.50. He paid
$1 for the license. When the min
ister had ended the ceremony the
groom tendered him 50 cents, and
promised to pay the balance as soon
as he' obtained work. He did not
even have a job. They went to the
home of the girl's parents, and there
they are now living. The young man
has been pacing the streets of the
city looking for work. No one takes
him seriously, and therefore he can't
obtain steady employment to sup
port his wife. This pair will become
a charge upon charity. If they have
children, the latter will be deficient
and, too, will have to be supported by
charity or by the county.
Appeal to I.ejclnln tnre.
"Thus the whole matter resolves
itself in the necessity for remedial
legislation. The county clerk follows
the- law. It is not for him to say an
applicant for a license is insufficient
mentally or incapable of taking on
the responsibilities of married life.
We must turn to our legislature and
demand that the marriage laws be
made more strict, making it impos
sible for persons such as I have lLcn
tioned to secure a license to wed.
When thi3 is done there will be less
suffering and les3 work for charity."
