For instance, when a married couple tin.Is they cannot get a divorce in their own State, they usually go to a neighboring State and probably get a divorce, and if not, certainly at Ueno, Nevada, and they then nuirry whom tlioy wish on their return to their own State and laugh at the State laws. Ono font tiro of (lie Convention of Governors recently held in New Jersey was to initiate a movement which has been discussed for n number of years; namely, the passing of uniform State laws on this subject or else the plac? ing of Ibis subject entirely in the hands of the federal gov? ernment, which, of course, would insure a perfect uniform? ity of laws on this most im? portant question.
