On this ground the appeal was made and upheld. The court of appeals in rendering its decision made it plain that it thought the guilt of Ellsom had been proved; nevertheless a technical error had been made and there was nothing to do but let the prisoner go. least one year's residence in the state before a divorce can be granted, and perhaps there may be more drastic features still.
