MURPHY FOILED.
He Didn't Get the Forty-
Fifth's Roll.
ROW IN THE FORTY-FOURTH.

REPUBLICAN EXECUTIVE BODY.
Resolutions of the (ireystone Alli
ance in Favor of a Public
Employment Office.
i
Max Popper's political board of health
met again last evening and did some more
purifying of the Democratic district rolls.
The kicks before them were numerous, but
the row in Gavin McXab's borough was ;
perhaps the most interesting that
came to light through the medium
of the primary seven. McXab has
a dead cinch on the Forty - fifth,
but there is a minority that is never satis
fied with anything, and which is led by
those stalwarts, Billy Fitzgerald and J. J.
Murphy, the Deputy Sheriff. Now Mon- i
day night the secretary of tie Forty-fifth
Club got an order from Popper's board of
health to give a roll to the energetic
minority. Armed with this order Murphy
sent to Clitus Barbqur's office and set
about copying the roll. .When fairly v der
way Tommy Chandler, the eminent parlia
mentarian, wandered in and ordered the
proceedings to stop.
Hence the kick that Murphy duly regis
tered with the primary committee again i
last night. This resulted in another order j
for the roll. Harbour says that there are
800 names on the roll. There is little
doubt that McXab will win out in his
fight.
The affair of the Forty-fourth also came
up. There is a strong minority here, too.
There are 6C9 names on the roll, out of
which the canvassing committee would
purge some fifty stuffer?. The minority,
however, bended by L. V. Merle, a mem- '
her of the primary committee, claim that j
150 nemes should be stricken out. They j
have boasted, too, that having a man on j
the primary committee they can carry
their fight through.
A few names were dropped from the
Twenty-eighth last night also. The com
mittee meets again to-night.
Dan Burns is not coming back in Com

A resolution was adopted expressing in
dignation at the Japanese beine allowed to i
participate in the Fourth of July parade. '
The resolution concluded as follows : "The |
Japanese are by race and tradition antag- '
onistic toUhe principles of republican in- I
stitutions, and we deem their appearance j
in a Fourth of July parade, carrying small
American flags, as only a burlesque on
Ahiericanism and a mockery at patriot
ism."
A resolution favoring the Government
ownership of railroads and telegraphs in
the United States and advocating its inser

also adopted.

WAS INSANELY JEALOUS.
How Reed Came to Be Divorced
From His Wife.
Judge Hebbard yesterday granted Uattie
K. Keed a divorce from Jotin L Reed on
the ground of extreme cruelty.
The suit was the outcome of a rattier
strange story. For some time past Keed
had been acting in such a strange way
that it became necessary a few weeks ago
to hold an investigation into the question
nf his 3anity. He was brought before
Judge Hebbard and the Insanity Com
missioners, who after a brief examination
came to the conclusion that Keed was a
monomaniac. The man was insanely
jealous of his wife, and han several times
threatened lo kill her. Their children
were placed In the care ot Secretary Hol
brook of the Society for the Prevention of
Cruplty to Children.
Finally Judge Hebbard decided that if
Keed were sent into the country for a
wnile he might get over hisin«ane fits, and
orders were given to that eft'eot. It was
r.ll to no purpose, however, as no sooner
did Keed coniH back taan he started in
again to menace his wife, and got so
troublesome at last that the poor woman
was obliged to sue for a divorce. This was
grauted by Judge Hubbard yesterday, and
the husband ordered to contribute 515 a
month toward his wife's support.
TWO NEW VESSELS
They May Be Added to
Our Revenue Force.
Assistant Secretary Mamlfn Talks
About Needed Additions Notice
able in the Service Here.
Secretary of the Treasury
Charles F. Hamlin is a guest at the Palace,
having but recently returned from a trip
to tbe southern portion of tbe State,
where he spent some time in looking Into
the condition of our revenue service, es
pecially along the Mexcan border.
Mr. Hamlin states that one of the most
important results of his observations was
the opportunities for smuggling he dis
covered io exist along the border. The
force ot United States officials is entirely
inadequate to perform the duties required
of them in a satisfactory manner, and Mr.
Hamlin will recommend that it be ma
terially increased. The officers, he says,
are very efficient, and all they require is a
larger force and better boats. At present
they only have a rowboat for service, and
the requirements of the situation so im
pressed themselves upon Mr. Hamlin's
mind that he telegraphed Senator White
to see if an appropriation could not be put
through this session for a steam barge in
that locality.
As to matters nearer home, Mr. Hamlin
said that he hoped in the spring to send
the revenue cutter Perry around the Horn
to this port. Tbe Perry is a sister ship to
the Grant, and is one of tne best boats in
tbe service.
The Secretary thinks that this coast is
entitled to a new cutter anrt also a board
ing-boat to take the place of tbe Hartwell.
The first, he said, would probably cost
about 51 75,000 and the latter about 550.000.
There should also, he thought, be a launch
here, which would cost about £10,000, for
service around the bay and up and down
the coast.
While Mr. Hamlin did not say that it
was his intention to recommend these im
portant additions to the marine service
here, the inference drawn from his re
marks was that he would pursue that
course.
When asked directly if any changes
were under contemplation in the Custom
house Mr. Hamlin said that no action
would betaken in that direction until after
the report of '.he special agent had been
received, when the tfficials would consider
the matter together.
Monterey, he said, should have a col
lector and inspector stationed there, wnile
at present there is no official, and other
points along thf coast impressed him as
being in need of a material strengthening
in force.
To-day Mr. Hamlin will meet a dele
gation from the Oakland Board of Trade
regarding a proposition to mike a separate
port of that city from San Francisco.
"The administration is much interested
in the Western coast," said tbe Secretary,
"and it was for the purpose of ascertain
ing tbe needs of the service that I made
the trip here."
Friday Mr. Hamlin goes to Portland,
and he will take the cutter Kuan from
Port Townsend, probably, for Alaska as
; soon as he has made certain investiga
tions at the first-named port. He will
visit Victoria and Vancouver to look into
the consular seal question, and will also
! give his attention lo the smuggling which
is said to prevail to a large extent in the
north. Another matter which will absorb
some of his time will be that of the pro
i posed establishment of an ore-sampling
I works on tne border. The McKinley bill
I contained a provision fur the erection of
[ such a plant, and the Wilton bill also pro
vides for the same purpose. It is believed
that much ore is shipped into this couutiy
under an estimate fnr below its actual
grade, and the sampling works is devised
to provide for just such emergencies.
Mr. Uamlin^e oniy a few years over 30,
and although one of tbe youngest men in
the administration departments, is reputed
to be one of its strongest constituent parts.
Johnson's Toy Pistol.
James Johnson, a 10-year-old boy, be
came tbe proud possessor of a toy pistol
yesterday. lie invited some of bis friends
to bis mother's bakery, 217 Eighth street,
last night, to watch him plug the tire of a
wheel full of bullet?. His fun was sud
denly stopped when one of the bullets
plowed its way through Augustus Mooney's
right thiph. Moouey is about li years af
ace and lives at 30% Louisa street. He
was taken to tbe Beceiving Hospital by
two other boys and Dr. feiinuMin dressed
the wound, which was fortunately only a
flesh one. The boys said that someone
accidentally pulled Johnson's arm as be
was iiring the shot.

THE MOBNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO, WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 1894.
A DIVORCE STORY.
With Scenes Laid in Three
Continents.
THE WOES OF MRS. BROWN.
How She Took Her Daughter to
Europe to School.
KIDNAPING OF THE YOUNG LADY.
A Weird Tale of a Marriage in Japan,
an Abandonment in Europe, a
Divorce in Dakota.
A curious tale of marriage and divorce
was developed in Judge Hebbard's court
yesterday when May Agnes Brown suc
ceeded in obtaining an order setting aside
a decree of divorce obtained against her
in South Dakota some years ago.
It transpired that the plaintiff and her
husband, Robert W. Brown, were married
in 1874 in Yokohama, Japan. Brown was
the agent in China ami Japan for a large
commercial house in Dakota, and his busi
ness engagements compelled bis residence
abroad for several years. The couple
lived happily together for a long while, a
daughter being born to them, Elizabeth
Louise Blown, now 17 years of age.
In the year ixs:> it became necessary that
the young lady should receive a rather
better education than the schools of China
and Japan afforded her, and, according to
the wife's story as told in the complaiut
and at the sub>eguem hearing of the case,
it was agreed that Mrs. Brown should
leave her husband for some length of time
and take her daughter to Europe, there to
complete her training. This was done,
and Mrs. Brown and her daughter took up
their residence in various parts ol Germany
and .Switzerland, being amply furnished
with money from the husband and father.
All went well until August 28, 18i»2,
when Mrs. Brown and her daughter wore
residing at Lausanne, Swirerland. On
that day the duuguter mysteriously disap
peared, and it afterward came to Mrs.
Brown's knowledge that she had b«en ab
ducted by tier father's direction and taken
to America, where Brown joined her and
took her to live him at Cleveland, Ohio.
From the day of her daughter's disap
pearance Mrs. Brown declared that she
was completely abandoned by her hus
band, who contributed not one cent toward
her support. Finally, in her distress she
applied to her mother for relief, and by
her assistance she found her way back to
her home in California.
Soon after her arrival Mrs. Brown was
served with papers, informing her tnat
her husband had Instituted divorce pro
ceedings against her in the courts of South
Dakota, pleading willful desertion as the
ground. Again Mrs. Brown obtained as
«is';r.ce from ber mother and started for
South Dakota, where she vigorously op
posed the divorce, claiming among other
O'intentions that her husband was not a
resident of that locality, and that conse
quently the South Dakota coarts had no
jurisdiction.
The decree, however, went against her,
aud Mnwi; gat his divorce. He was or
dered, however, to pay bis wife .substantml
alimony, and the court ordered that the de
cree of divorce should not be entered until
the first installment of alimony was paid.
It was not paid, however, as immediately
after the proceedings came to a conclusion
ihe husband jumped ou a car, aud from
that day to this Mrs. Brown has neither
seen nor heard of him.
All this story came out in court yester
day in support of the wife's petition to have
the decree of divorce obtained in South
Dakota set aside. The husband did not
appear, being absent in China, it was said,
nor was he legally represented. Accoru
ingly, after nearlug the evidence, Judge
Hebbard granted lhe wife's petition and
set aside the decree.
Mrs. Brown will In all probability turn
round now and herself sue for a divorce.
FOURTEENTH-STREET SEWER
The City Surveyor Proposes to Re
build It.
Surveyor Fitzhugh, whose offioe has
been in a state of practical stagnation for
almost a year, had one bit of news to offer
yesterday, and that rather an important
bit. It involved a proposition, which is
now being formulated, to reconstruct the
entire length of sewer on Fourteenth street,
from Howard to Channel. This is the
section that h&s been giving so much
trouble the last few yean with overllows
in the rainy season, by stopping cars and
flooding cellars. Mr. Fitzhugh says that
tbe sewer is a very old one, and that the
ground on which it is laid, being made
ground, has been sinking unevenly for
several years. In this way the level of the
sewer has been broken, and sand made to
pile up at the joints. The overflows have
been due to this cause.
At the meeting of the Supervisors on
Monday next Mr. Fitzhugh proposes to
present a plan for a relaying on the six
blocks from Howard to Channel streets.
Hi 1 expects that favorable action will be
taken in the matter. Should that be. the
case the residents along Fourteenth street
say ihev will tuss their hats and rejoice.
The Richmond sewer outlet is progress
iug rapidly, having passed the corner at
Twenty-fourth avenue, and being well
under way toward the oceau.
This, with the proposition to resewer
Fourteenth street, is regarded by Surveyor
Fi'/.hiigh as the beginning of activities in
preparation for the winter rainsandfloods.
BEGGAR AND THIEF.
A Mendicant Caught at Joseph Q.
Eastland's Safe.
A middle-aged man clothed in rags en
tered the office of Joseph G. Eastland, 604
Commercial street, yesterday afternoon,
and prefaced a request for alms with a
moving story of destitution. Mr. .East
land was in a hurry to post a letter aud
left lite mendicant sitting in bis office
while he ran to the nearest box. When he
returned he dircovered the beggar kneel
ing at i tie door of tbe safe, which bad
been left open.
The man tarried not to explain the situ
ation, but sprang to bis feet and shot
down the uaiiww stairway with the capi
talist aud au attache »f tbe Mexican con
sulate at his heels. Up Commercial street
pursuers and pursuers tied to Kearny.
where the fugitive was captured. They
took him back to the office nnd searched
him, but finding that he had stolen nothing
permitted him to depart. A policeman
frum the old City Hull arrived shortly alter
the man disapi eared, but Mr. Eastland re
fused to fciva him any inlorirration about
the attempted robbery.
THE SUNDAY RIOT.
Meyer Is Fined $100 and Johnson
and Hauck $50 Each.
Adam Meyer, who was found guilty of
disturbing tbe peace at the cornet of
Market street and Grant avenue on Sun
day night, appeared before Judge Coulan
yesterday morning for sentence.
Meyer, it appears, is a prominent citizen
of Chicago, and was an Alderman during
the late Major Harrison's administration.
Before sentence was passed upon him he
addressed the court. "1 had been drinking
that night," be said, "and seeing the crowd
1, on the impulse of the moment, said
something, but wliat it was I bare no
recollection. I have nothing whatever to
do with the strikers, and ltdoes not inter
est tne whether they win or not. I dis
claim any intention of wishine to cause a
disturbance and regr*»t the position I have
placed myself in. The fact is. 1 was mad
because I could not get a Pullman to Los
Angeles, whither 1 am bound."
Ine Judge pointed out that he had been
warned i.iore than once by Policeman An
derson to keep quiet, and when placed
under arrest he yelled to the crowd to come
to bis rescue. He might not have had tbe
intention of inciting to a riot, but his con
duct was certainly in that direction. It
was necessary for th« preservation of tbe
peace in a time lise the present to show
that auy attempt to incite a riot would be
severely dealt with, and he would there
fore impose a fine of £100 or 100 days' im
prisonment in tbe County Jail. Meyer
promptly paid his fine.
S. Johnson of Menlo Park and Lincoln
Hauck, a dishwasher, who were arrested
for throwing stones nt the police officer,
were each fined $50 or fifty days in the
County Jail.
DICK'S CHANGE OF VENUE.
Judge Murphy Takes the notion
Under Advisement.
Attorney Livernash's motion for a change
of venue in the case of K. 11. McDonald
Jr., awaiting trial for the embezzlement of
520, 000 from the Pacific Bunk, was finally
submitted to Judge Murphy yesterday.
Livernash having closed the day before,
District Attorney Barnes yesterday morn
ing presented about ten nffidavits ia re
ply. These affidavits merely set forth that
the one-time prejudice against Dick Mc-
Donald had materially lessened and that
the affiants thought that there was nn rea
son why Dick should not obtain a fair and
impartial trial in San Francisco.
Among those whose affidavits were read
were District Attorney Barnes himself,
who said that there was no such prejudice
against Dick as to prevent his having a
fair trial; Assisiant District Attorney
Peixotto. who said he didn't know ol any
such prejudice, and Deputy Sheriff John
Burns, who said he had had Dick McDon
ald in charge for some days around aud
about the new City Hall and that no one
seemed to look upon the prisoner with
marked disfavor.
At the conclusion of Mr. Barnes' read
ing of bis affidavits the motion for a
change of vpnue was submitted withoui
argument. Dick and his wife sat through
out the entire proceedings and looked re
lieved when it was all over. Dick looked
confident, especially wben he noted how
few affidavits were introduced by the Di*
trict Attorney in answer to the eleven vol
umes produced and read by the indefati
gable Livernash.
Judge Murphy will probably render a
speedy decision.
BAD FOR MURPHY.
If Mrs. Jersarmitsky Had
Got at Him.
Bereaved of Her Husband's Care for
Six Years to Come, She Went
for the Court.
There was an interesting little scene
enacted in Judge Murphy's courtroom
yesterday, when Buuj.»iuin Jersarmitsky
came up for sentence for the crime of
arson.
Jersarmit&ky, a Pole, was convicted of
having attempted to set fire to bis house
at Z- Olive avenue on May 2 last. There
was a slight blaze in the house, and on in
vestigation Fire Marshal Towe discoverea
that a regular train had been laid, with
the evident intention of completely de
stroying the premises. The result was
Jersarmitsky was arrested, and as it was
found that he had insured his property for
something like five times its value, he was
held for trial, and last week a jury in
Judae Murphy's court convicted him of
arson in the second degree.
The prisoner was accompanied in the
courtroom yesterday by his wife, a sallow
dark featured woman wearing dark spec
tacles and dangling a four-year-old child
on her knee. All through the .rial she had
sat by her husband's side, and had be
trayed no emotion of any kind. The
scene that followed her husband's sentence,
therefore, raoie as a surprise.
Judge Murphy made a few remarks to
the unfortunate prisoner, and then sen
tenced him to six years' imprisonment in
San Quentin. But no sooner had tiie last
words of the sentence passed the Judge's
lips than the prisoner's wife sprang from
her seat. She stood for a moment scream
ing with all her might, and then suddenly
made a rush for the bench, overturning
chairs that stood in her way.
Deputy Sheriff Burns was on deck, how
ever, and gallHtitly interposed his person
between the infuriated wife and Hie be
wildered Judge. The woman struggled
and screamed, but to no purpose, as «he
was overpowered and put out of the court
room into the corridor outside. But there
her actions and threats became so violent
that it was found necessary to arrest her.
The woman was taken to the City Prison
and searched, but as no weapon of any
kind was found on her she was let go. But
she wandered back to court, only to find
the room empty and the venerable admin
istrator (if justice, her intended victim,
flown. It was some time before Mrs.
Jersarmitsky could be convinced that
Judge Murphy would return no more
that uay and she sat waiting for him
while her infant child played about in
childish innocence.
Finally the mother became convinced
that her quest was hopeles, and taking her
child by the hand sho wandered out and
away— to her desolate home, perhaps.
Meanwhilo Judge Murphy is devoutly
hoping she will not return.
THE REGENTS.
No Dormitory Buildings to Be
Erected at Berkeley.
At a meeting of the Board of Regents
of the State University held yesterday
afternoou at Hopkins Art Institute the
finance committee reported that after due
consideration it had been deemed not ad
visable to invest any part of the endow
ment funds in iho construction of dormi
tory buildings on the Berkeley grounds.
I'tiH matter had been given to the com
mittee for action at a previous meeting ol
the regents, when questions as to what
would be the moßt advisable investment
of the funds were brought up. It was con
sidered by some Mint were part of the
capital used in adding to the beauty of the
grounds as well as serving as an advan
tage in stuuent«. the interest derived
would be quite sufficient.
The committee, however, thought differ
ently, behaving that a more profitable in
vestment could be found elsewhere.
FOR HIS CHILD'S DEATH.
Andrew Fay Seeks Damages From
a Hospital.
Andrew Fay lias Sled suit in the Su
perior Court against the Ilahnemann Hos
pital College of San Francisco to recover
$50,000 for the death of his infant son,
Willie Fay.
The plaintiff claims that he took his
child to the hospital to be treated for an
abscess on the head. The child was
operated upon by Dr. E. K. Bryant, an
employe of the hospital, on May 28. 18!M f
and died in a few hours after the opera
tion. Fay charges that an improper in
strument was used in conducting the
operation and thac it was owing to the
unskillful treatment administered that he
lost iii» child. He seeks compensation in
hard coin, holding the hospital responsible
for bis loss.
BY WATER ROUTE.
Some Advantages of the
Service.
SHORT ROADS TO TIDEWATER
They Would Give Many Towns
the Benefits of Competition.
RIVER BUSINESS IS BOOMING.
Arrival of a General-Cargo Ship at
Last— The Bawnmore Back
From Peru.
iNow that the merchant who ships goods
to the interior bas plenty of time to dis
cuss other topics than sales and shipments,
he is turning his attention to the transpor
tation problem.
The merchants are both astonished and
gratified to find that water routes are being
operated regularly and with satisfaction.
The bay and the rivers are showing how
useful they can be. The railroads may
possibly never get back the same trade
that was once carried by them between
San Francisco and towns reached by
water.
San Jose, tbe city once supposed to be
entirely in the bands of the monopoly,
is doing its freighting via Alviso. It is not
suffering from any evil consequences
either. Passengers can reach that city by
three different steamers now, and the
estuary that leads from the bay to Alviso
has suddenly become au important water
way.
By building an independent line to
Alviso the Garden City can be relieved
entirely of any further vas«alage to the
Southern Pacific. Tbe road would not
cost much. The merchants say it should
be built.
Tde Napa Valley, with all its broad
fields, vineyards and orchards, has paid
tributb to tbe railroad company for years,
but it is now dividing its traffic with the
river aiul bay steamers. An arm of the
bay come to the rescue when tbe tie-up
was ordered. A private road, a little
narrow gauge would answer, would help
.N'apa.
The advantage of competition by boats
is marked in tbe case of the people of Pet
aluma. The steamer Gold connects with
that place, offering opposition to the San
Franciico and North Pacific line. The
freight on a box of eggs from Petaluina to
San Francisco is 15 cents. It is 50 < ents
from the next station above that town.
The river steamer has won a victory for
Petaluma.
Stockton has been independent of the
railroads for some time. Ever siuce the
Uniou Transportation Company started
into business she bas enjoyed reasonable
freight rates to the coast. Since tbe strike
Stockton has had a splendid river-boat
service, and so far as San Francisco is con
cerned she can communicate with this city
just as well now— though perhaps not
quite so rapidly— as she did when the
Sou.hern Pacific was operating in full blast.
"I am going to Redding by steamer,"
said a lady Irom the north. "I never
knew that I could get there by boat befora
this strike started and tbe Portland express
wns tied up."
Redding is receiving freight, passengers
and mail by river, and is by no means in a
slate of siege. The navigation of the up
per waters of the Sacramento is being agi
tated. Tne merchants say, "Keep up the
fight."
"Hay wards, Niles and towns further
south iv tbe Santa Clara Valley would do
well to consider the proposition of building
local lines to tide-water," said a fruit
dealer, "such roads would not be very
expensive, and would certainly pay ex
penses."
Everybody talks river steamer on the
water front these days. Shipping is at a
standstill at every city wharf except those
docks where the stern wheelers laud.
Yesterday afternoon au extra police offi
cer had to be kept on Clay-street wharf to
keep order among the lone strings of
wagons and drays that poured merchan
dise of all descriptions in upon the steamer
Dauntless. Chief Wharfinger Boubar had
a hard time keeping tbe wharf from be
coming blocked.
Tbe first general-cargo ship that has
come into port for nearly three months
arrived yesterday morning. It was the
Henry B. Hyde, Captain Pendleton, from
New York. She will dock to-day at Har
rison-street to discharge.
The British steamer Bawnmore, Cap
tain Keane, airlved during the day and
anchored in Mission Bay. The Bawnmore
brings a full caruo ot oil from Tarala Bay,
Peru, tor Graves & Co.
The schooner W. F. Jewett that went
ashore at Kedondo last February has been
rebuilt at Eureka and Is now loading lum
ber for this city.
Mission Bay is full of ships, so full that
there is not room for any more to anchor
there scarcely. Vessels are commencing
to anchor off Harrison and Folsom streets ;
there are a dozen in that part of the bay
now.
ATTACHMENTS AT THE FAIR.
Cornely's Royal Pavilion Attached
for Two Thousand Dollars.
Arpad Bauer, Thomas C. Cockburn and
Frank Doe added two more complaints
and suits for attachment to tbe great
number that seem now to be writing the
elegy of the Midwinter Fair. Bauer, in
the Justices' Court, alleges that he served
the Vienna l'rater Company for eight
months and quit them with $210 of his
salary unpaid to him. In addition to this
some 825 advanced by him from time to
time in the service of the company also
remained unpaid. In making complaint
Bauer now alleges that the Prater com
pany assigned to C. B. Stone, who was in
reality a member ol the company, for the
purpose of defrauding creditors. lie
therefore petitions that a writ of attach
ment against C. B. Stone be allowed him.
Thomas C. Cocbburn, the commissioner
from Ceylon, secured a wrltof attachment
from tha Sheriff against bis partner in the
Ceylon tea-booih at the fair for £901 12.
In "order to enforce payment the writ was
served also on his partner's downtown
store at U5 Post street. The partner's
name is J. li. Foster.
Yncount Comely had the wickedness
of his ways called to account by Frank
Doe in the shape of an attachment for
S2OOO upon the Royal Pavilion and
gambling-hall. The writ was served by
the Sheriff late yesterday afternoon, but
Comely was very little embarrassed, be
cause there was little danger that his
creditors would care to underiaue to move
the pavilion, and certainly no one would
cure to buy it at public s»le.
S. Nakamara, dealer in Japanese goods,
filed complaint in the Justice's Couit that
Paul Blackmar, chief of the department of
concessions, was unlawfully retaining his
property and chattels. Blackmar claimed
that Nakamara was indebted to tbe ex
position. Nakamara thinks things should
be the other way.
The Divorce Court.
Judge Troutt has granted Nellie Fergu
son a divorce from Thomas V. Ferguson,
on the grounds of extreme cruelty and
willful neglect.
In the divorce suit brought by Alexan
der Bigger against Ann E. Bigger, claim
ing desertion, the husband's petition has
been denied ; while Judge Troutt has niadn
a decree in favor of the wife on her cross
complaint, granting her the divorce on the
grounds o( her husuand's willful desertion.
