Norwood vs. Gertrude Carter, which oominono ed yosterday aftomoon and which, from tho pleadings, promised develop ments of quito a sensational character was out short about noon today by the court. This suit grew out of an alleged forced marriago between the parties, on February 20, 18o2, an account of which appoared in The News at tho lime. THE PETITION. The plaintiff's petition alleged that on tho above date the oeremony of marrisgo between plaintiff and de fendant was oclebrated and performed according to tho forms of law, license having-, on Baid day, been for maly issued and tho ceremony per formed by an offuer authorized by law to perform tho same, but that while in answer to questions propounded by said officers in conneotioa with the obtaining ot said license and during tho said marriage coremony, ho ap peared to voluntarily answer the ob ligations of a legal marriage with the defendant, ho in truth and in fact did not eo assert and agreo to said mar riage, but was unlawfully oonstrained and compelled by foroe and arms, and against his will, to ontor into said marriage) relation with defendant Ucforo the porlorinanoo ol tho cere mony '.he actendant knowing tuo 11 u willingness and rofusal of plaintiff to marry her nnd oon&piring with E. 0. Overby and E. E. Lark and others, and aided and abetted by said persons, by force and arms and threats to take tho life of plaintiff if he refused to cobidIv with their de mand or offered resistance, compelled plaintiff to aocompany thom to tho court houso and to apply far and ob tain the marriago liceneo and indloato asEent to the porformanco of tho mar riago oeremony with tho defendant; that though ho rohearsed and assumed tho marriago vows, yet his aesont was not voluntarily and freely given, and thereforo the said marriage was illegal, null and void. Tho petition further alleges that he rcfusod to rcconize defendant as bis wife or tho binding efieot of any obli gation assumed at or imposod by said illegal marriago and still refuses and will ever refuso to in any way ro cognize said ooremony as a vrlii and legal marriago. The plaintiff thereforo prayed for a doorce annulling tho pretondod mar. riago and declaring tho samo null and void. defendant's answeii. Tho dofendaot's answer avered that she was not sued in her truo or right Dame; that hor namo is Ger trude Norwood' That Gertrudo Car ter was her maiden name. but. that on the 20th day of February 1892 she was then his lawful uife That said marriage was lawfully polomnized at the request of plaintiff, with his free wi'l and with his consent freely and voluntarily given thereto. Tho de fendant further denied all and singu lar tho allegations in plaintiff's peti tion and that they aro insufficient in law to eutitlo him to a decreo of di voroo. defendant's onoss hill, The defendant's cross bill contained the additional averments; that on the day succeeding the marriage tho plaintiff ortielly abandoned her and left her without any means of support and an outcast dopendant upon the charities of the world wtthout hor con Bent and arjrainBt her protest; and since Biid abandonment tho plaintiff has commenced a systenntio course of cruelties and outrages towards and upon tho defendant which rondored their further living together as hus band and wifo insupportable; that plaintiff has cruolly and maliciously and falsely endoavored to further crush and disgrace her by stating in the heanngot a number of persons that sho was a lewd porfon before thoir marriage and without virtuo or chas tity; and that she had been guilty of lowd and immoral oonduot with othor men, which Baid statement tho de fondant pronounced falso and wilfully mado for tho sole purpose of oreating false impressions and sympathy with and from tbo public. Tho defendant avered and freely ad mitted that prior to tho marriage she did havo intercourse with tho plain tiff, but with no other man has she ever aoteu in any manner unbecoming a true and virturous maiden and that sho had never had intercourse with him till after September 2Uth when ho had asked and obtained the con sent of hor foster mother to their marriago. Trusting nnd loving him, the defendant on tno night of Septem ber 20th 1891, about 8 or 9 o'olook plaintiff took ber to a room in tho court houso whero he had previously stationed two men one of whom per sonated an officer legally authorized to perform tho rites of matrimony, whilo tho othor aoted as witness, pronouno ed tho usual words of the rites of mat rimony and pronounced the plaintiff aud defendant husband and wifo Tho defendent believing up to Febru ary 20, 1892 that the hrst ceremony was lawful demtnded that the plain tiff rlUnlnso their marriace to her friends and to tho world, but plaintiff informed hor that they wore not mar ried, but that tho ceremony was un lawful. The defendant averod that after said false marriago ceremony she and plaintiff had intercourse as man GOOD JVXOVJS. That is the kind of a move which is made by purchasers of our FINE FURNITURE AND CARPETS For some reasons it's a bettor iuovo than was ovor tundo boforo.

Tho plaintiff filed his replication to defendant's original answer and cross bill whioh avorod that the pretended marriago was brought about by force aud threats and that plaintiff never consented to said pretended marriago. Plaintiff denied that ho ever lived with, cohabited with or had any sexual intercourse with her sinco his forced, protended and so oalled mar riage. Tho cvidonco on tho part of tho defendant was dosed about 1U:.10 thiB morning when tbe fkbt witness on the part of tho defendant was in tjoduced. Several witnesses for dofendrnt, in cluding tho defendant herself, wcro introduced and all acknowledged that fores was used to bring about tho mar riage, whereupon Judge Goodrioh cut off any further testimony and ontercd the decreo of divorce, lor tho reason that it was shown that iho marriago was under duress and honoe void. A great number of wit nesses woro summoned on tho part of tho plaintiff, it is said, to prove tho allegations of tho plaintiff with regard to the want of chastity on the part of defendant but it was thought not necessary to introduce them. The plaintiff was represented by Poarre nnd Bojnton and Jones, Ken dal and Sleeper, and the defendant by Judge W. II. Leasing. LATE n.
