THE HOOK TBTLOTD ATTOTTB THURSDAY, JULY 25, 1889.
THE DAILY ARGUS
JOHN W. POTTER.
TnuRSDAT. July 25. 1889.
Tha Dtio in commenting on the de
cision of Judge Adams in the mayoralty
contest case nays:
The contest Itself was based on the
right t. vote of certain theological stu
dents living at Ausjuslana college, and
having no other borne, and must have
been dismissed if a trial on its merits had
Ka.n ,aho,l No iDiustire is therefore
i. ,iiomiaainir it on account of tbef
suit being improperly instituted."
In the first place the suit was
not wholly brought to test the
right of the Auguslana ollege
students to vote. There wasoftnsidera
ble doubt a. to whether Mr. tfcConochie
had received a majority f the votes
cast, and one of the objcts sought was
f to have a recount. Uit of course the
mtin point wan to 'Mcrmine the validity
of the Aiisustsna-olleje votes, which
have been a sujfot of controversy at
each reciirriiuyrltelion. The Union un
doubtedly apAumes more legal knowledge
than it actually possesses to warrant the
statement that a simiUr decision would
hae resulted had the case been tried on
its merits. And if this was so, why were
the party managers So anxious to have it
brown out on a technicality?
The case as it now stands, is far from
satisfactory to the people at large. This
matter of the students voting has been
agitated for years, and it was sincerely
hoped that the question would finally be
settled once for all. It is of no import'
ancc to the public whether the case was
brought to the law or probate terra of the
county court. VY hat it wants is a de
cision one way or the other. As the case
now stands the question is to which term
of the county court it should be brought
instead of "was Mr. McConocbie fairly
elected by legal voters of the t-iivT"
That's the question the ux payers want
answered. Judge Adams' decision may

DIVORCE BARS LET DOWN.
-ln Ancient Illinois ItecUlon for Those
Whtne Marriage Is a Failure.
" mt-Auo, juiy ,'i. a point or law was
established in Judge Al geld s court yester
day which will make thie state more notori
ous for divorces than it lias ever been. . The
poiat has lain dormant f r twenty years, and
the practice of courts I ere has ,"or that pe
riod been directly the i e verse of it The
question at Lsius in th case iu which the
point came up was whett er both parties to a
divorce suit were required to have been res
idents of the state for one year before a di
vorce could lie grantedone of tbe parties
in the case, the wife, txing a resident of
Pennsylvania, and the (barge lieing deser
tion. Judge Altgeld refused to ben r the case
on the ground that both parties were not res
idents The Law Waa Conclusive.
Thereupon tbe attorney for the wife pro
duced the case of Hannnah Ashbaugh vs.iX
F. Ashbaugh similar in every respect to the
case on trial in which Judge Sheldon, now
a supreme court judge, refused to entertain
the case owing to non-rtidoce of the wife.
This was in 155 in Steptenson county. An
appeal was taken to the supreme court, and
uiat ixuy decided tliat J jdge Sheldon was
wrong, and in support of the ruling the di
vorce statute was cited as follows: "No per
son shall be entitled to a divorce who has not
resided in the state one w hole year previous
to tbe filing of tbe bi I, unless the offense
complained of was cot unit ted within the
state, or while one or bvth of the parties
resided in the state." This lets down th.
bars and makes Illinois tbe paradise of di
vorce seekers until the law is changed.

melon In Prospect.
Chicago, July 24. Miss May Waldron,
the actress who has so often charmed every
body with her renditions in "The Henri
etta," has entered on a fast so-unique that it
deserves chronicling. Khe is now at the CUT
ton house, and has completed the twenty
second day of her wonderful fast Miss Wal
dron is tall, fair and pleasing in appearance,
but she fancied that an excess of flesh pre
vented her from securing many desirable
engagements. 8o often was her embonpoint
referred to in derision that life beta me
burden to her. Everywhere she went peo
ple commiserated her upon her uudue devel
opment until at last, iu despair, she deter
mined upon heroic treatment. She is a broad-
shouldered and well made girl, upon whom
tbe fancied development of flesh would ap
paivutly have set lightly enough, but to her
it was a burden that could not be born J.
Pretty Enough as She Is.
To the ordinary unprejudiced observer the
curves of Miss W aid ion's figure were very
pleasing to the eye, and the fullness of which
she complained existed rather in her own
imagination than in actuality. Miss Wal
dron was seen at thu Cliftou house last
night As she came forward to greet the re
porter it was bard to believe that she was ex
s riencing any unusual feeling, or that she
had entered at all upon that uncommon fast
which makes ner case so remarkable, She is
a trifle above the medium height, has well
formed features and pleasing blue eyes, with
light hair pushed easily back from an open
brow, and a charming smile. Her ligure was
aavantagcouftly displayed by an evening
gow n, ami aptiarently was so nearly perfect
tuat it leu nothing in the way of physical
development to be di-sired.
After the greet inSs had been exchanird
the actress sat lon comfortably and pro-
cceaeu to leu an annul ucr resolve.
"1 startel on tins ast July ," she said.

thing dtsperute to reduce my flesh or die in

ti.ui with Dr. H her, of Washington, and
according. y I put my e f under his treat

'What Is that treatment?

medicine here the speaker produced a bot

odor "three times a day and the juice of one
orange, which 1 mix with water aud take
usually all at once alsmt noon time. That is
all 1 have taken for twenty-two days, and the
result has een that I have reduced my flesh

"Is there no unpleasant feeliu connected

For the first few days w hile I was in Wash
ington I felt a dizziness and was very rest less,
but lately that has In a great measure worn
on. i have taken a Turkish bath nerlv every
day, with a full allowan e of the hot-room
ana tlie steam, and I think that ha in a itreat
measure reduced me. The fifth day of my fast
1 went down the Potomac and rode ten miles
and enjoyed It exreedtuitly. After I had been
eighteen days in Washington I tol l Jhe doctor
uiat it was absolutely necessary that 1 should
go west, and the dort ir said that it was not
at all necessary that i should be under bis im
Yearns for a Square Meal.
'So I came on to Chicago, and here I am. as
you see, sutrenng no marked inconvenience,
tbougti I have religiously kept up my fast.
I went to see "The Tempest" this afternoon.
