One aof the most complicated divorce
cases in the records of Penmnsylvania
eoIrts opened bh a libel in divorce fled
by Valentine B. Finn against his wife.
Mary A Finn. The libel nla divorce,
which has been iled in the Prothanotary's
oaiee during the past few days br Mr.
Finn'. attorney. recltes that Mrs. Finn
deserted her husband in 187l, taking her
cbildren with her, and that she continues
to absent herself. A peeuliar feature of
the ease is that Mrs. Finn obtained a di
voeee in another state a year ago, but as
smoa a slbe learnd of her humband's ac
tion she expreued her deter.lnatlon to
contest the proceedings, and wrote to her
relatives here that she would return to
this city in order to put in her defence.
Mr.l Finn was married in this city eight
or nine years ago. She wan Mary A.
Guise and is eonected with same of the
wealt est and hest known families of the
city. Her husband is a member of the
inrm of John (. Finn i Hon, paper nanu

Ohio. The divorce laws of that state do
not re a notice to be served on the
efenant, and Mrs. Finn. after a rea
dene ao a r in the state, had no difl
eulty in obtaining a decree of divorce.
She was awarded the ustody of her two

the custody o the two childen, am he

cording to recent rulinla of the supemne
court quoted in the case, Mrs. Finn might

this state, but here she could be held as a
bigamist. The husband could not be
married again In this state, hut he
could outside of it. Each could be mens

except Penonslvania. In this state the
· two would still he man and wife.
iThe law upon which lawyers rely for the
i justieation of foreign divoresr and upon
Swhich Mrs. Finn bases her case is the act
I of ('ongres for the authentication of
Secoirds, which states that "judicial pro.
eeedings authentlcated hll have such
faith and credit given them in every court
within the United States as they have by
law or sage its the court of the state
fron whence the saki reports are taken."
Mr. Finn's counsel depentds upon the
new laws in this state, formulated since
the famnous Nicholson divorce suit in this
city a few yearn ago. One of them is that
"a foreign statute upon the subject of
marriage in direct eotfliet with our estab
libhed policy will not he regarded as bind
ing in our courts." Another is: "A decree
of divorce obtained in another state wi ti
