The Dobbin Divorce Case on Trial
in the District Court.
When the district court opened yes
terday morning, the examination of
Mrs. Dobbin was continued. She stated
that one time she forgot and left a gas
jet burning in the bath room, and it
burned all night, and Mr. Dobbin
claimed that she left it burning
on purpose. He kept scolding
about it for several days and refused to
believe her when she said she had for
gotten it, until she took an oath on the
Bible that she did not leave it burning
on purpose. He frequently told her
that her extravagance would ruin him,
as for example, when she used eggs
that cost 24 cents a dozen to settle the
coffee. When the plaintiff's counsel an
nounced that he was through .with the
direct examination Mr. Dobbin stopped
counsel (Mr. Miller) from com
mencing {the cross-examination, and
conducted it himself. He acted as
calm and unmoved as though a paid
attorney in the cuse, ami when, in the
course of the examination references
were made to the premature birth of her
baby, which only lived four days,
Mrs. Dobbin broke down completely,
and sobbed violently. His wife's dis
tress, however, did not appear to have
any effect on Mr. Dobbin, who pro
ceeded with the examination and asked
his questions in the same taunting man
ner which he followed throughout the
entire cross-examination. Mr. Brewer,
Mrs. Dobbin's counsel, came to her res
cue and said: "If it please the court, 1
object to the defendant conducting the
The court, however, hell that it was
a mere matter of taste,' and the husband
could conduct the crosse-examination if
he wished.
"Mrs. Dobbin," asked Mr. Dobbin,
"when you moved into the Fremont
avenue house, there was something said
about a servant, was there not?"
"Yes, sir; but 1 told my husband that
1 preferred to do the housework my
self, as 1 wished to show him that 1 was
"Your husband got up and started the
fires, did he not?"
"Yes, sir."
"Did your husband complain about
your work?"
"Yes, sir, he frequently found fault,
and said there was not enough variety
in the food on the table."
"Did your husband not help make the
beds and do part of the housework on
"No. sir. I had no assistance from
him in doing the housework."
"Did you regard the wishes of your
husband in associating with Dr. Mc-
Murdy's wife?"
"1 always regarded the wishes of my
"Did you not tell your husband that
Dr. McMurdy at one' time tried to put
his arm around you'. I
"No, sir; no 'such thing ever hap
"Now think, now think: remember
your are under oath," said Mr. Dobbin,
in ii sepulchral tone.
"Mr. Dobbin, no such thing ever hap
pened, nor did 1 ever hear you speak of
such a thing before."
Mrs. Dobbin's attorney at this point
said to the court: "If it please the
court, this is no cross-examination. It
is brought in here for the purpose of
insulting the witness. 1 object to such
"This witness will be treated right.
The husband is more interested than an
attorney," said Mr. Dobbin.
"Do "you remember a conversation
with your husband in which he found
fault with you for associating with the
McMurdys?" he continued.
'•Yes, sir."
"Your husband objected to your as
sociating with them on account of cer
tain rumors that were afloat about Dr.
McMurdy, did he not?"
"1 remember nothing of the kind. I
loved the McMurdys because they were
estimable people and old friends of
mine, and you said that Dr. McMurdy
thought too much of his wife and was
too indulgent to her, and that you
thought that my associating with her
would have a bad* effect on me."
"Now, did not your husband sit up
with you night after night and try to
convince you that you were extravagant
and that you should learn to econo
"Yes, sir."
"Did not your husband call your at
tention to the fact that the buttons were
off his nightgown, and tell you that he
supposed that was an illustration of cult
"He said something of the kind."
"Did you not persist in buying things
that your husband did not want?"
"Yes, sir, butter and eggs, which 1
was obliged to have in the house, until
he told the butcher and grocer not to
trust me."
"You said yesterday that your hus
band drank liquor. Now how did
liquor affect him?"
"I don't know. I cannot tell whether
he ever became intoxicated or not. lie
always kept liquor in the house and was
in the habit of taking some before he
went 'Sown town in the morning, ami at
other times in the day."
'•Now. Mrs. Dobbin, was not this
whisky kept in the house for medicinal
purposes?" «,
"That is what Mr. Dobbin told me,
but he drank it himself regularly."
"Did you not refuse to eat at the table
with your husband?"
"1 left the table several times when
you insulted me by placing all the food
on tie table before me and referring to
my large appetite, and day that 1 lived
only to eat."
Mr. Dobbin then took up the various
statements which Mrs. Dobbin had tes
tified that he made to her, and asked her
if she knew what prompted them. She
answered that she could never account
for his actions. This merciless exami
nation was kept up until after 2
o'clock, when Miss Nettie Wood,
the nurse who attended Mrs.
Dobbin during her sickness, was
called. She stated that she found Mrs.
Dobbin in a very weak and nervous
condition, and that the second week
after the baby was born she was in a
very precarious condition. It was dur
ing that week that Mr. Dobbin was
absent from the house most of the time.
"I did not see him for five days,"
she said, "and while 1 was at
his house he asked me about the condi
tion of his wife a few times, but not
very often. He never assisted me in
caring for his wife but once or twice.
He came into her room and found fault
with me and dictated to me how 1
should care for her. "You mean he
made suggestions to you?" said Mr.
Dobbin's attorney,
"No. sir. I mean that he dictated to
me. He seemed to have an idea that he
knew more about nursing than 1 did,"
answered the witness. She then stated
that Mr. Dobbin called on her about a
month ago and questioned her in regard
to Mrs. Dobbin's condition at the time
she nursed her.
Bertha liooney testified: "I worked
for Mr. Dobbin four months, from Sep
tember to October. 1 worked only in
the kitchen. Mrs. Dobbin took care of
the rest of the house. She also helped
me in the kitchen. I never wasted any
thing that 1 know of, but Mrs. Dobbin
told me Mr. Dobbin spoke about some
biscuit I threw out, but they were
so old that I could not use
them for anything. There was
only five buscuits, and they were very
old. Mr. Dobbin came often into the
kitchen and looked around; he opened
the doors in the cupboard and would
look on the shelves. He never talked
to me cross, but he did to Mrs.
Dobbin. He did not talk to her
pleasant. He talked a good
deal about Mrs. Dobbin leaving
the gas burning in the bath room. Mr.
Dobbin talked a great deal about things
being wasted: he said there was too
much put in the slop barrel . I did not
care how often he looked about the
kitchen or in the pantry. I never saw
Mr. Dobbin ever get any coal for the
stove. He told Mrs. Dobbin one day
that she only lived to eat and that was
all she did. 1 had worked out about
two and one-half years before going to
Mr. Dobbin's.
Agnes Gallagher testified: "I work at
A. Sandahl's meat shop, 1202 Western
avenue. I have worked there seven
teen months. Mrs. Dobbin traded with
us. I never saw Mr. Dobbin trade at
the shop. He told us not to trust Mrs.
Dobbin for any meat."
John Speedy testified: "I am in the
paper hanging business. I remember
papering some rooms in Mr. Dobbin's
house. When I went to Mr. Dobbin
with the bill he told me had the
rooms papered for Mrs. Dobbin and
tha the supposed that it would
not be long before she
would want another change. When
We were preparing the rooms. He
stopped us because he did not like the
paper, and afterward he and Mrs. Dob
bin came to the store, and he selected
some other paper. When 1 took him
the bill he said it was too large, and
that he would only pay it after a law
suit. Afterward he paid it, but told
me that the next time 1 papered
rooms for him his wife would
have nothing to say about it.
and that if she had anything to say
about the papering it would be in a
house of her own. I said she would
probably pay the bill then, and he said
she had nothing to pay with. 1 was not
acquainted with Mr. Dobbin at this
time, having never seen him until he
engaged me to paper the rooms."
Dr. H. H. Kimball testified: "I be
lieve that long-continued grihf and un
happiness would cause a miscarriage in
many cases. Grief and long-continued
mental trouble will produce ill health
in persons of the most robust
health and on account of its
depressing action on the system. I
have known it to cause a miscarriage
several times."
Dr. Hance testified to about the same
thing. The case will be resumed this
morning, and will probably last several

The Committee of Arrangements
Decides on a Programme.
At the meeting of the committee to
make arrangements for Memorial day
at Morgan post hall last evening the
committee on flowers reported that ar
rangements had been made with the
various woman's relief corps and the
schools to furnish flowers for decorating
the graves. J. N. Hoover, of
the committee on transportation,
reported that Thomas Lowry
had offered free of charge a car to bring
the inmates of the Soldiers' home into
the city and return (them at the con
clusion of the ceremonies. This kind
offer was accepted. Mr. Lowry had
also offered a train with a capacity of
500 to run to Lakewood cemetery
and return for §50. This matter,
however, was left to the various
posts, as was a proposition to furnish
carriages at §3.50 each. Co!. Mel nt vie,
of the committee on music, reported
that SidwelPs band had been employed
to furnish music; that the various
Woman's Belief corps had volunteered
to assist, and that a choir under the
management of A. A. Kelly would also
assist. The committee .■ on orators

"Now that Mercian has failed to make

remarked a Republican politician yes

It became pretty well known, yester
day, that Capt. Snider. Albertus EL
Hall, Frank Hart and other Snider men
were at the conference, and that a
deal was made, as far as
possible, by which they are to
pool the Merriam and Snider chances
and exchange followings. Loren
Fletcher was asked what he either
knew or thought about it, and remarked,
tersely, that he knew nothing of it, and
thought less. "Why should Ibe inter
ested?" he demanded. "Cannot Merriam
and Snider have conferences without
my consent?" Then he smied and
strode on, with the observation that it
was a line day.
Albertus 11. Hall took the early train
for Northfield yesterday, presumably to
instruct Joel Heatwole how he should
cast his ballot at the Chicago conven
tion. He had not returned last night,
and could not be seen, while Capt.
I Snider was not found -in any of
1 his . customary haunts. Just what deal
j Merriam and Snider could propose as
j regards Kamsey and Hennepin counties
is a little cloudy, as the outlook of
either is rather unsubstantial. "They
both have plenty of money," said a
ward worker, "and that's all I care
about. If 1 have more money and they
have more experience before the cam
paign is over, whose business is it?"

Several Democrats who enjoyed the
distinction of having been in the mi
nority of the Hennepin delegation to
the recent state convention, are accus
ing the majority of base ingratitude to
E. W. Durant, of Stillwater. One of
them said: "It was Ed Durant, who at
least successfully carried through the
coup ""d'etat that put Mayor Ames
at the head of the St. Louis delegation.
No one will dispute this. The Ames
men are certainly under lasting obliga
tion to him. How did they reward him?
He wanted to go as a delegate to St.
Louis, aud instead of standing by him
the Hennepin crowd cast its vote for C.
D. O'Brien, of St. Paul."
One of the Ames' contingents was
speaking of this yesterday, and said it
was all nonsense. "Durant was not a
candidate for delegate at all. If he had
been it would have been different. Du
rant and Ames are close friends, and
would do anything for each other, and
if Durant had wanted the Ames'
strength he could have had it, but he

Deacon Alvah Eastman, of Anoka,
went home mad from the district con
vention. He came here morally sure he
would be sent to Chicago as a delegate,
but he met the usual fate of the coun
try contingent in the city. The trouble
with Alvah was that he tied his faith to
Blame, while the rustlers of that con
vention were for some one else. Alvah
got the idea that he was defeated by the
Loren Fletcher combination with Lang
don, so he now swears vengeance, deep,
dark and diabolical, on the head of
Fletcher. Though they denied it at the
time, the Snider interest went to the
Eustis-Eastman combination, in the hope
of coTraling country sentiment. No one
who marked the course of A. H. Hall
could doubt this. Eastman evidently
caught on and he now swears Anoka,
Isanti, Sherburne, Chisago, Pine and all
the rest of the northern tier will repay
Fletcher with interest. 11. F. Barker
will be resurrected and his little knife
will be whetted for heart's blood. All
of this falls like rain drops on the armor
of Fletcher, who has been there before.
He smiles and a baleful light shines in
his eyes, but he says nothing.
Mayor Ames said yesterday anent the
St. Louis convention: "I intend to
call the delegation to order because 1
was named first in the resolution, which,
in parliamentary usage constitutes me
chairman. When we meet 1
mean to simply call the delega
tion to order as temporary chair
man and will preside only until the per
manent organization is effected. Then
1 will resign. Understand, 1 only in

the delegation meet? Not before we ar
rive at St. Louis, perhaps. Possibly on
the train if all are present. It would be
unnecessary expense and bother to hold
a meeting before.

Frank J. Mead— l never realized how
old 1 was until I attended the late con
ventions and saw what a few of my

Their places were filled with young
men, and on inquiry I found that many
of them were the sons of the delegates
with whom 1 formerly mingled. lean
hardly yet believe it, but it is a fact,
nevertheless, that you will meet in our
county conventions more men that have

There seems to be a growing idea
among a number of the politicians that
there is danger of the boom of Capt.
Sam P. Snider wilting before the con
gressional convention is held. The
chances are that the convention will not
be held for three months yet and the
captain's elacquers are already losing
their enthusiasm and deserting his
A Forger Hun In.
Up to a few days ago a young man
named Lou Sullivan was employed as a
hostler at Eddy's livery stable on Third
street. lie was pretty handy with a
pen and did some work around the
office. Monday morning he left and later
in the day Mr. Eddy learned that
the fellow had forged his (Eddy's)
name to two checks and had them
cashed at a bank. Last night Mr. Eddy
located the man in a saloon on Bridge
square. "Sergt. Leonard and Offi
cer Fox placed him under ar
rest and Leonard started with
him to the Central station.
When* he reached the alley between
Nicollet avenue and First avenue south
Sullivan broke away and made a dash
for liberty. Sergt. Leonard called to
him to halt, but Sullivan paid no at
tention. Then Leonard pulled his
gun and fired twice. This had
the effect of checking Sullivan's
sliced, and he was captured in front of
the St. Charles hotel, having run just
half a block. He was locked up and
will be arraigned this morning on a
charge of forgery. Sullivan has' worked
for Eddy nearly two years and has

He Was Crazy.
A young Norwegian, clad only in a
shirt and drawers, rushed up to Patrol
man Beeves early this morning and told
him that while lying in his bed at the
Scandia house, on Second street
north, he had heard two men in
his room planning to rob the house.
Officers went to the house, and found
just what they expected, the young man
was crazy, and that his robbery story
was pure fiction. He was locked up for
the night, and to-day his case will be
looked into.
