MRS. MURPHY WANTS DIVORCE.
Alleges Cruel and Inhuman Treatment
Emma Minnie May Murphy filed suit
for a divorce from David Murphy last
Saturday. The parties were married at
the Beaver Creek school house some
thirteen years ago. Shortly after that
they left for Wallace, California. Mrs.
Murphy alleges that her husband soon
began a system of abuse against her
which did not end until she left him in
1894 and went back to her father at
Beaver Creek. Later she again went to
her husband and lived with him, but
was forced to again separate from him
on account of his abuse of her. This
time they lived apart several years,
when she agreed to again live with
him. They lived together this time un
til laat September when she again left
him. According to the Btory told in the
divorce proceedings Murphy has mis.
treated her shamefully, calling her vile
names and ueing abusive language to
her. His repeated indignities rendered
her life miserable and she finally con
cluded to institute divorce proceedings.
Mrs. Murphy is the daughter of George
C. Slaughter, a hiehly respected citizen
of the Beaver Creek country. She has
always borne the best of reputations.
As a result of the union three child,
ren have been born. Their ages are 10,
9 and 6 respectively, and tbeir names are
Alice, Edward andGIaiys. She asks
that she be given the custody of the
children on the ground that the father
is not a fit person to take charge of

What Will the Republicans Do?
Has the' Republican party changed its
policy in regard to secession. I don't
exactly understand the situation in
Panama, only that she wants the canal
and takes this opportunity knowing that
tne United states government will stand
by her. It seems to me that there must
have been tome understanding between
the powers that be. Now does this pre
cedent commit the Republican party to
secession? if so will not the old South
ern secess smile a big smile. Yes we
people want the canal but the capitalist
wants them gold bond, it takes to build
it worte, and that is the reason we stand
now for what coBt this country .thousand
of lives and million of dollars to suppress
in the rebellion. Now suppose we were
not intereetedin the canal andthat Pana
ma, should nnder other circumstances
as reasonable declare herself free
and independent. What would have
been the result? Our warships would
have been sent there, but would have
said give her hell, and we will stand by
and see you shell ber back into tne com
