Such Is the demand In England. For only the r^ch can afford separation expenses as it stands today. Le3t the pious object that cheap divorces will encourage it, It Is well to mention that despite its being a luxury, there never wore so many actions pending as today. 2,025 Suits Are Filed. The grey wigs of the judges neMrly flew off at finding 2,025 suits down for hearing when the Royal Courts ol Justice opened recently for a new term. There were 1,238 undefended petitions by husbands and 378 undefonied petitions by wives, leaving only 40D where any opposition exists To get a divorco in England oi Wales husband must prove unfaithfulness?that being tho sole ground foi action. When a wife brings suit she must prove not only the breaking ol the seventh commandment, but also cruelty or desertion. And everv neti tlon for divorce must be heard In London, no matter where the parties reside or where the offense was committed. The cost of bringing witnesses to London is enough to daunt even the richest. To thousands, the offense required under the law Is so revolting thai there is no alternative but to hoodwink the law if divorce is to be had The result is that everybody is resorting to collusion.

"Collusion has b come the order of 1 the day," she says. "Those who can afford an 'arranged divorce' do so quite frankly. "In tho recent case of Sir Dlgby 1 Lawson, against his wife, Lady Iris, the name of the man supposed lo have accompanied her to the Grosvernor Hotel, cannot be dragged from her. Dozens of other cases have come to ' my knowledge where tho defendant i defied the lav? rather than commit the ' sin the law prescribes." Tho Wedgewood case is typical of ' the cncouragemont of the law toward ' oolluslon. Colonel Josiah Wedgewood, mem; ber of parliament from Newcastle, once he had Bafely got his divorce, and married the woman he loved. , promptly proclaimed that he had ob; tailed his decree by fraud, had no re' grets and virtually advised others to do likowlse. Cannot Change Law. "The law which the church will not allow jMSlltleians to " change," says Colonel Wedgewood, 'insists that a wife shall^only divorce her husband 15 11 guilty of adultery plus deseration or , cruelty. The law permits desertion to jbe assumed if a writ of restitution of conjual rights is obtained and not : compiled with. I "So letters were exchanged and I was found guilty of desertion.
