THE SHARON CASE.

Special to The Astokax.J

supreme court to-day rendered a de
cision in the celebrated Sharon divorot
case, reversing the decision of the
lower conrt and remanding the cm
with instructions that a motion far
$6,600 alimony and $800 costs b
denied. The decision of thesuprssm
court is made on the groomd
that the suit to declare the allagsd
marriage contract void was begun in
the TJ. S. circuit conrt previous to
issuing by the superior court oftke
order for alimony and costs, and that
the marriage contract was sub
quently declared void.
This decision sets at rest all litiga
tion growing out of the famous con
tract of marriage that was alleged to
have been made between the late Wil
liam Sharon and Sarah Althea Hul,
now Mrs. Terry.
The supreme court in its deristom
says that the finding of the Unttoi
States circuit court, must be flaal
with all courts. The circuit oowt
found the agreement of marriage null
and void, and without any agroem t
there could have been no
marriage, and without mar
riage there could be no divorosv
and as the judgment for alimony and
costs could only accompany a aedrea
of divorce, necessarily the order of the
lower court, compelling the payment
of alimony and costs from tha Sharon
estate, is invalid.
The decision expressly states that all
state courts must regard the whole
question as being finally and decisively

The latest dodge of the heathen
Chinese has been worked on a lot of
confiding United States customs
officers. A Mongolian resident of
Port Townsend went down to Port
Angeles the other day, and when' he
wished to return to his home be
thought himself as to how he oonld
do it the cheapest. He obtained from
a brother celestial a return certificate
issued by the British Columbia grr
ernment, and then managed to be dis
covered by a customs officer after
dark and in a conspicuous way. John
was immediately collared by the
astute officer, and on being
searched the British Columbia certifi
cate found on him was assumed to be
truth positive of the fact that he had
been smuggled in from tins coast. The
