THE CALIFORNIANS AND THE
JAPANESE.
Dills have been Introduced in tlie
California legislature to prevent Jap
anese Irom being directors o£ coiporr.
tions in that state, to segregate Jap
anese children in separate schools,
and to compel the Japanese to live ill
separate quarters of the towns and
cities. These bills, if hey should be
come laws, would constitute real
grievances which- the littlo brown
men on the -QtUol' side of the .Pacific
would be apt to resent.
The state of California lins no right
tf' give the people of any foreign
"country Juit^^r^ot"complaint. If
our treaties with Japan are not
•rong enough to fully protect the peo
pie of that country from discriminatj
ing state statjies, it is high time they
were
amended. The treaties of the
Vlilted Stales with' fbreign countries
'cannot be interfiled -with .by any
state. If that were not the lav
state might enroll" tiie whole counu-y

EARTHQUAKES AND VOLCANOES
The recent, terrible earthquake in
Southern Italy and the eastern coast
of Sicily lias caused world-wide com
ment on the subject of earthquakes
an(
volcanoes. It seems to ibe fairly
1
well settled that both are occasioned
through the operation of a mechanic
al necessity, namely: the gradual cool
lug,
and.consequent
shrinking or
contracting of the earth's crust, tak
en together with the fact of the great
Hiody ot intense beat in the interior
ol the earth.
'As the earth's heat gradually de
ciines.'through its radiation out into
space, the bulk of the earth must
." slowly shrink. Although the dlminv.
tton of the earth's diameter may be
-very little even "in thousand years,
yet It is a continuous operation
occasionally there must bo a disturb
ance of the earth's surface, anil such
disturbances usually occur in the
cinlty of volcanoes, where the eartl.s
crust seems,to. have its least
of resistance.
The wireless messages from the
reeling vessel were answered by its
comrades of the deep, and they came
in time to rescue both passengei'3 and

which to describe such cries for help
and such responses. They are the
marvels of the age. They are without
a parallel in history. The nearest ai
proach to such use of the air which
we can now recall was back in Octo

COST OF CRIME IN IOWA

At a low estimate crime costs I
about $1,000,000 a year. This is 1
direct burden to the slate for

arc to be added the expenses of the

A MARVELOUS ChY. FOR HEL
A tragedy-with-a bright side took
place in a fog off the coast of Mans,
early last Saturday morning: Two
ocean liners heavily ioaded with pas
sengera
collijled vi,th each other. The
thick grey veil of mist soon separated
the injurW- ahips. T.he(.Florida, the
less injured of
the'two",was

proceejj with its cargo of human
freight, but the -Republic W43 .pier

to the bottom of lie ocean. There
the marvel of the age made re3cue
possible. The stricken ship sent out
a cry for help. Its masts were trans
formed into tongues and its sharp
ciy w:l heard
for.
hundreds of miles
in every direction and responded to
by other ships like fire companies re
spond to a fire alarm.
vs. '. Decisio
tlertrudc 1211a Durey,'
Defendant.
The plaintiff asks for a decree of
divorce and* for the custody of his
minor children upon the grounds of
adultery and- cruel and inhuman treat
ment on the part of the defendant
The defendant has filed a' cross pe
tition in which she asks for a divorce
and the custody of the children, and
-for alimony, on the ground of cruel
and inhuman treatment on the part
of the plaintiff.
Nine days have
Ijucu
consumed ill
the taking of the testimony, most of
wliicli has been directed to charges
of adultery and the defense thereto
There is before Court a great mass oi
testimony on both sides upon this
question, and it is unnecessary to
say tliat It is conflicting. Much of
the testimony of the plaintiff's wit
nesses in .support of the charges of
adultery cannot be believed. It is un
believable that any -woman would
commit adultery In the full glare of
an electric light, and unhidden by
the view of every parser by.I-t is ab
solutely unbelievable that a woman
would expose herself in a condition
of nakedness to the gaze of a man
other than her husband in the pres
ence of her little daughter of the age
o£ 10 years, the child being also malt
ed with the window sash and shades
raised so that people within seeing
distance might see all that transpired
in the room. The testimony ill li
gurd to the alleged seeing of the de
fondant and her little daughter naked
in a room With a strange man is base
upon the testimony of the witnesses,
Mjss Haley tiiul Miss Eckart. In the
opinion of }lio Court these two wit
nesses testified to what they be
lieved they saw, but lvthink that they
ere mistaken. It is probable that
they saw the defendant and her little
girl in the room nearly, if not quite
naked, as they claim they did, and it
is probable that they saw some one
in the room that they believed to be
a man, but they were no doubt mis
taken-as to seeing a man there. The
most depraved woman on earth would
not., disrobe and cause her little in
nrcent. daughter to do so, in -the pros
ence of a strange man but she
uight, while attending to the de
rrsands of the toilet and of personal
cleanliAess, have disrobed and caused
lsc-r .Tittle daughter, to" disrobes and
have forgotten to pull down the win
dow slyide. Jhe witnesses of tills
allog^f incident were unquestionably
mistaken, though honest in their in
tent to give truthful testimony.
.It is highly
improbable
that a worn
an would throw her arms around the
neck of a man and kiss him, who
had recently had an operation on his
face, and from which he was then
suffering.
There has been much evidence
•against the defendant in this respec
that the Court cannot believe is true
and the Court is of the opinion that,
a large portion of the evidence upon
which tlie plaintiff relies for the
proof of his charge of adultery, can
not be given any serious considera
tion.
There is evidence here that one
ol the witnesses openly boasted
the plaintiff ot his illicit relations
with the defendant that he talked
flpon the subject in a boasting way
to men and women indiscriminately,
some ot whom have come upon the
stand and 'testified to the most dis
gusting details of these alleged eon
vcrsations. As to that class of test!
rnony the Court is of the opinion that
it is unworthy of belief and cannot
convict the defendant of the charge
ef adultery upon any such testimony
down
am
The plaintiff lies, in tlie opinion of
the Court, attempted to prove en
tirely too much, and has used unfair
means and methods for the purpos
of accomplishing his ends. At tin
same time 1 do not find that tli
plaintiff ins intentionally done wrong
this respect lie has simply been
mistaken.

which the test!
mony of two detectives lias been pro
duced but it must be apparent that
nothing was accomplished by these
detectivcs and all of the testimony
ill respect to this raid is consistent
with the entire innocence of the de
fendant as to these particular
charges against her. It is remark
able that if these detectives saw
a strange man enter the defendant'
house on the night in question,
should have escaped while the
house was surrounded by so many
persons in the employ of the plain
•tiff, and is equally noteworty that
tliesp detectives having seen a man
enter the house, should not hav
been able to find Him, although at all
times thereafter they were oil guar
to prevent his e::cap
The.Court is of the opinion that
the defendant has been guilty of in
discretion, possibly serious indescr
lion, but there is no proof here upon
which a finding that she has been
guilty of adultery could he based."

-v
child, who is one of the most inno
cent anil modest little girls 1 have
ever seen, I am of the opinion that
adultery ha$ not been proved, and
'the Court so finds.
It Is easy to charge a woman with
adultery, and much easier to put a
wiong .construction upon acts of in
discretion on the part of a woman,
ud in every community there are
men and women who are only too
anxious to^lestroy the character*and
reputation of a woman the moment
thore in the slightest, ground of sus
picion against her.
There is, however, eveVy reason
why these parties should
vbe
divorced
each has been guilty of ertiel anil in
human treatment of the other, and in
tlie opiniop of the Court they cannot
live together, and nothing that this
Court could Say or do could causo
them to ever live together again, and
while they are both guilty of cruel
and inhuman treatment, the opinion
oi the Court is that their best inter
ests and the welfare and happiness of
their children demand that a decree
of divorce be entered.
'As before stated, I have talked with
the little child Vina, who is ten years
old 1 have also talked with Charles
and Orin, who are fifteen and thir
teen years of age respectively. I find
that all three of these children are
remarkably bright, intelligent and
well appearing children. tfhey arc
modest, well mannered* and conduci
themselves in a way that* would be a
credit to any parent. The elder
daughter*, Goldle, has been in Court'
with her mother during the entire
trial, and she has conducted herself
in a manner that is above criticism.
There has been no word of criticisir
of these children, or any of them, and
it is conceded by all parties. that
whatever may .be the faults of the
mother, she has raised her children
:n an exemplary manner. The ..evi
dence shows that they have been
under the care and control of the
mother almost entirely for many
years the father was in the asylum
in Independence for six or seven
years, and since that time has been
engaged in work that called hlnr
away from home during the most of
the working days. The mother lias
had nearly the sole care of the ehil
dren, and- it cannot be doubted that
she has succeeded in making then:
good and obedient children that shc
has given them the proper training
1j sending them to kcMooI and tc
Sunday school, and that in every re
spect they are a credit to her good
management. I saw the school re
port of Charles today and his aver
age in all studies and deportment
ninety-two and two-sevenths the
other children have approximately the
same good reports.
In respect to the question of the
custody of the children the Court is
therefore of the opinion that the
mother should be given temporary
custody of the minor children, and it
so onfcred. If anything should de
velop in the future in regard to the
conduct of the defendant that would
require a change of this custody, it
will be made upon proper showing.
As to the question of alimony, the
Court is of the opinion that the de
fendant is entitled to alimony. She
has been Jargely instrumental in the
accumulation of the property owned
by the plaintiff.
The Court finds# that the plaintiffs
property is of the value of about four
teen thousand two hundred ninety dol
lars, the land being valued at seven
ty-five dollars an acre, or twelve
thousand dollars, and the personal
property two thousand two hundred
ninety dollars. The debts of the
plaintiff os shown by his own testi
mony amount to four thousand four
hundred and seventy two dollars and
fifteen cents approximately the
piokable ccst of this trial, Including
the attorneys foes of the defendant's
attorneys will be one thousand dol­
lars, making the total amount cf the
indebtedness of the plaintiff about
five thousand four hundred and sev
enty-two dollars, leaving his not
worth, after deducting the mortgage
on the land of twenty-five hundred
dollars about eight thousand eight
hundred dollars.
The order And decree of the Court
is, that a decree of. cgvorce be enter-!
ed in this case, .dissolving the bonds
of matrimony that now exist between!
the parties. As alimony the defend
