CHILDREN OF F. M. OWENS ASK
DAMAGES FOR MOTHER’S
DEATH.
FATHER HELD FOR CRIME
Supreme Court Upholds Validity of
Legislative Act Removing Disabil
ities of Married Women, Giving
Them Power to Sue.
Little Rock.—■
The Supreme Court reversed and re
manded the $75,000 damage suit In
stituted in the Helena Circuit Court
against F. M. Owens, who. It Is charg
ed, killed his wife in Helena some
months ago and is now in jail await
ing trial. After the killing, C. S.
Fitzpatrick, who was appointed ad
ministrator for Mrs. Owens' estate,
filed suit in behalf of the state and
the six children. The suit on behalf
of the estate asked $50,000 from
Owens, and the children asked a judg
ment of $25,000 from their father. The
Supreme Court’s decision upheld the
validity of the law enacted by tne
last Legislature removing the disabil
ities of married women, giving them
the power to sue and be sued.
When the suit was filed in tne lower
court a demurrer was filed on the
grounds that the right of action on the
part of either tlie administrator or the
next kin was not set forth. The de
murrer was sustained. The decision
of the Supreme Court was called upon
to determine whether a woman may
maintuin an action against her hus
band to recover damages for acts com
mitted by him. and the Supreme Court,
acting under the act of the last Leg
islature. held that she did. Tiie ver
dict of the lower court in sustaining
the demurrer was reversed with in
structions to overrule the demurrer
and for further proceedings.
The court refused to dismiss the
appeal in the case of Chas. Lapratrte
against the City of Hot Springs, a
suit instigated to test the power of
municipalities to levy oscupation tax
measures. The motion to dismiss the
appeal was made on the grounds of
; insufficient abstracting. The court's
I ruling on the merits of the case will
i be of more than minor importance,
| as Little Rock and several other cities
i have enacted ordinances similar to the
! Hot Springs instrument to produce
J revenues to supplant that lost through
enactment of the statewide prohibition

Court ordering the execution post

You can eat anything afterwards without risk
of salivating yourself or your children.
