In Kulton strret. The decision does not hettie the legitimacy of Miss Marker aa to the mother, but that had been done alieady In an action trhsl before Jutlce Aspl nn 1 1. Miss darker Is the daughter d Mrs. Kftelle D'Tgeloh and lives at Hrnoklme, Mass., with her mother and stepfather, Henry I". Dorgeloh, llnston manager of Pie llHiiihiiig-Ainerlc.in Line. Met father. Charles S. Marker, died In 1!0I and Ma widow suliseiiientl,v was married to Dotgeloh, tint before either of these marriages, vvlien less than H years ai. toe girls motlier had con tiacted another marriage with Alphonse Murtha. Ibis marriage had never been voided either hy death or court decree. It is belli that the girl's father ciilcrcd into h s marriage in gooil faith, believing that his wife had never married or fore. It was Mis, Dorgeloli's complicated martal ndventurie which gave rise to the iicf.tlon of her daughter's legitimacy and led lo four veals of litigation and several suits. The other Hirkcr hlr. nine in number, raised the iiuestioii when .Mrs Dorgeloh undeitook to Miter her I o msh'er as n party to a partlt on su't.

Mrs. Dorgeloh took the matlir before Justice Kapper, who dismissed It on perjured lecitmony, Mrs. Dorgeloh al leged, Thereafter Justice Hlackmar de cided in favni of Miss Hallo r. bill failed to clear the mother's name. So Mrn. Doreeloh htoucht an action to annul tier marriage to Murtha. After considering the evidence Justice Astilllall El anted Mrs. Dnrgeloh'ji peti tion, She testified that she was .voiing nir.1 stagestruek when the marriage oc curred and that she had always looked upon it as a mock marriage, although a iergvnian perfonned the ceremony. She thought the marring) icrt.tlcate would help her obtain a theatrical engagement, she sold. Murtha. as keen for nil annulment as the plaintiff, corroborated her testimony So Ml-s, llarl.er wins m every phase of the litigation, her right 'o Inherit lie'ng established and her legitimacy on both sides.
