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.
Tool contended that the girl was not

Dorgeloh had another husband (Muriha)

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

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
