Holding that "a separation in which
both parties willingly concur is not in
any sense a willful desertion of one by
the other," the supree court today re
versed the decree of Judge William
Galloway awarding a divorce to May
Macombe SmYthe from Ignatius Martin
Sniythe, in department number 2 of
the circuit court of Marion county.
This case was heard and a decree hand
ed down -March 13, 1U15. The defend
ant husband made no appearance and
allowed his iio to obtain a decree by
default. In fct it appeared that both
wanted a divorce.
District Attorney Ringo, however,
who appeared for the state in the case,
annealed to the circuit court on the
grounds that the facts set forth in the
complaint alleging desertion did not set
forth sufficient tacts to constitute a
cause for divorce.
The supreme court also held that
since District Attorney Ringo was not
served with a summons or notice of the
trial and did not nri'ear at the hearing
of the evidence that none of the metii
mis of obtaining jurisdiction of the
state had been observed. If Ringo had
appeared at the hearing and had failed
to mnke a defense or a pleading the
decree would have been one for want
of nn answer but since he did none of
these things tho decree is reversed and
the suit dismissed without prejudice ac
cording to th opinion of Justice Burnett.

REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS
Last night's meeting by the city
council was largely tanen up with a dis
cussion of the S. P. tracks on 12th
street. Alderman Cook, chairman of
the street committee, asserts that the
tracks have been raised above the estab
lished grade of the pavement and th:t
it is impossible to drive over the tracks
in comfort on account of the bad re
pair of the planking along he tracks
and between the rails. Also it is claim
ed that the track on Ferry street was
raised about 8 inches above the pave
ment and that autos often stall and the
engines are killed with the car on the
track across the rnils. This is said to
be a menace to the safety of the public.
Engineer Hampton, of tho Southern
Pacific, was present at the meeting and
was given the right to address the
council. Mr. Hampton said the bad
condition on Ferry street was due to
an error in the engineering department
and that it wa9 not the intention of
the official body of the S. P. engineer
ing department to have caused such a
condition as this. - He said that the
railroad company was ready and will
ing to rectify the error. He further
promised that tho track would be kept
in good repair in the future. Such
promises are. quite the current thing ac
cording to Chairman Cook and he asks
for further action us he said the prom
ises alone left the track in the same
The discussion was aroused by a
resolution introduced which would re
quire the Southern Pacific, to erect a
concrete retaining wall along the edge
of the ties under the pavement to pre
vent the pavement from crumbling and
to prevent water from the track drain
age system from seeping under the
pavement. The resolution was tabled
until tho next meeting of the council
upon the promise of Engineer Hampton
that the Southern Pacific would meet
any reasonable demands of the street
department and the people residing
along 12th street.
The paving for Church street was
ordered according to the specifications
prepared by the city engineer ana the
city recorder authorized to advertise
the intention of the city council to
