Over Decision of Supreme Court
in Divorce Case.
DECISION NOT SO SWEEPING

The decision of the U. S. supreme court
in the case of Haddock against Hid Jock
which, recently made public scared
many people who had been parties in
divorce proceedings, is not as sweeping
as at first declared, according to the
assertion of Judge Gantenbein of the
It was reported locally that by the
decision of the supreme court a divorce
secured in state other than the one in
which the martial domicile was and in
which service on the defendant had been
made by publication instead of in per
son would be recognized only in the
state in which the divorce was granted.
Judge Gantenbein declares that such a
divorce would undoubtedly be recognized
in all the states except New York, Penn
sylvania and South Carolina.
"The recent supreme court decision
is the cae of Haddock against Haddock
is not as sweeping as was generally sup
pose," said the judge. "The courts of
II the states except New York, Penn
sylvania and South Carolina have been
accustomed, as a matter of comity, or
judicial courtesy, to give full faith anl
credit to the decrees of the courts of
other states in divorce proceedings, al
though service may have been on the
defendant by publication of the sum
mons, and the martial domicile not in
the state where the divorce was granted.
"The supreme court of the United
States in its decision particularly
specifies that the courts may continue
to recognize the divorce decrees jf
courts of other states, and in all prob
ability the courts of all the states ex
cept the three mentioned will continue
to do so."
The decision of the supreme court in
the Haddock case was that the New
York courts could not be compelled to
recognize a divorce granted in a Con
necticut court where service had been
made by publication. The court reached
this opinion by a bare majority, stand
ing 5 to 4.
"Supposed a man and wife lived in
New York," continued Judge Gantenbein
"and the wife went to Ohio and began
a suit for divorce in which service on
the husband was had by the publication
of a notice in the newspapers. The di
vorce, if granted, would be recognized
not only in Ohio, but in every other
state in the union except New York,
Pennsylvania and South CaroMna.
"But if either the husband or wife
were to remarry in any of these three
states, they would be liable to prosecu
tion for bigamy. In all the other states
the validity of the divorce would not be
A divorce cannot be obtained on any
ground in South Carolina. In New York
divorces are granted for infidelity only.
Pennsylvania allows a little more ground
for divorce, but ranks third in the
severity of its divorce laws.

Potter Down Last Night With Big
Crowd San Jose Out For Bar
Duty Odds and Ends.
It is said the fine steamship Aztec,
of the Pacific Mail line out of San
Francisco, in the China trade, has been
chartered by the management of the
San Francisco-Portland Steamship Com
pany, for service between the Hay City,
Astori aand Portland, and will be put
on the nin in the course of a week oc
two. This is good new, as she is a
fine vessel and a fair mate for the fine
old Columbia, and will make the line
very popular. It sounds almost too good
to be true.
The bar pilot schooner San Jose went
to the lower bay yesterday morning on
her way out to her station, and is now
probably on duty. The Joseph Pulitzer
will go to Portland, and into the "sick-
bav." as soon as she can catch a tow
up. She will be there for tha better part
of a month.
The T. J. Potter came down the river
last night with a crowd of people bound
for the northshore beaches, and they
were having a jolly time. Music and
dancing and flirting and moonlight were
among the leading features of the trip,
and all thoroughly enjoyed.
There is a big fleet of vessels due in
from various home and foreign ports,
and if fair weather prevails through
August, it should be a banner month for
The Telegraph was unlucky enough
yesterday to run her sharp nose into
dolphin at the Eureka dock, on her way
up to Portland, but the damage was only
nominal. She will be down at 1:30 to
day, with a big excursion.
subject, says in the July number of the
North American Review:
"It does not seem likely that the
decision of the supreme court in the
Haddock case will make any substantial
change in legal policies. Its main pur
port is to sanction the continuation of
their own policies by New York and
other eccentric states.
"Those states that have proceded
under the federal constitution in recog
nizing foreign divorces are now released
from that position, but it seems not im
probable that they will incline toward
adhering to the former result through
comity, especially as the majority
opinion of the supreme court of the
United States pointedly leaves the way
open on that ground."
That the United States supreme court
may reverse its decision after a change
of personnel is thought probable by
Mr. Larremore. If the decision is re
versed it would mean that tha courts
of all the states would be compelled to
recognize the divorce decrees of every
other state, regardless of how service
of the suit was made or on what grounds
the divorce was granted.
