CASE HAS BEEN IN COURT
VERY LONG TIME
Plaintiff and Defendant Had Been Married Something
Like Twenty Years.
After lengthy arguments by Judge
Sullivan of Broken Bow and Byron
Clark on the other side and Matthew
Gering on the other, Judge Travis to
day handed down a decision in the cele
brated Hayles vs. Ib.yk.-; divorce
The controversy was between Jacob
Hayles and his wife Adelia, and was
brought by Mr. Kaylcs to terminate
litigation which was begun in Custer
county some years ago.
A suit was brought for divorce in
Custer county and the matter liti
gated before Judge Hostetter, who
after listening to the witnesses dis
missed the suit and advised the parties
to patch up their differences and dwell
together in harmonv if possible. The
parties had been married about 20
years, Mr. Uayles being sixty and Mrs.
"itayles forty at the time of their mar
riage. They were married in this
county, Mr. Hayles having lived in
Greenwood, and owned an eighty aerrc
farm near by. After the marriage
. they removed to Custer county and
accumulated several farms which have
since become quite valuable.
When the disagreement arose hc

Mr. Hayles later returned to Cass
county and took up his home at Green
wood again, and a lew months ago
began the suit for divorce. The ease
was hotly contested in the trial some
weeks aco. and was continued for
argument, which was begun yrstcrch'.y
before Judge Travis. After the argu
ments were completed the Judge
decided that plaintiff Mr. Kaylcs
was entitled to divorce, and gave the
widow 81,000 alimony.

Hearing Before Judge Beeson To
day Proves to be Interesting.
Yesterday aftemioon the county
court was occupied with the trial
of the case of Glen Scott vs. J. It.
Denson, constable. The suit was in
replevin and grew out of the levy
of an execution by Constable Denson
issued out of Judge Archer's court on
a judgement recovered by Alf White
for something like a hundred dollar
store bill against Glen's father, Wal
ter Scott. Glen is a minor and makes
his home with his parents and in the
course of the last three or four years
has accumulated quite an amount
of personal property. In fact the
homestead where the Scott family
resides is owned by Glen, but the fact
of his minority and that he was a mem
ber of the family, led counsel for Mr,
White to believe that the property
that Glen was using was his father's,
and so the execution was directed to
lie levied on the wagon and harness
in the possession of Glen at the time
but believed to be his father's.
The matter was hotly contested
on both sides, Attorney A. L. Tidd
ably conducted the plaintiff's side of
the case while Judge A. X. Sullivan
looked after the interests of Mr. White.

Martin W. Dimery, formerly pri
vate secretary to ex-Governor George
L. Sheldon came up from Oklahoma
last week and after seeing the work
ings of the state bank guarantee law
in that state seems to have changed his
mind. It will be remembered that
when the republican state conven
tion which met in Lincoln in l'.KM
voted down a resolution favoring the
passage of a law of that kind that Gov.
Sheldon opposed the action of the con
vention very strongly. In this he was
ably seconded by Mr.Diincry.Sincethat
tjnic Mr. Dimery has moved to Ok
lahoma and hns had a chance to see
the workings of the law and has come
in personal contact with it. The fol
lowing from Lincoln explains his po
sition and why he has changed his
ideas on the matter:

fer a law which provided that every
stockholder in a bank is responsible
for the deposits in the bank to the
extent of his private fortune.
"Under the Oklahoma law we ar
absolutely at the mercy of the assess

Oklahoma eity or elsewhere in the state
every dollar we have in capital stock
is responsible for that bank's loss.
"The money of the stockholders of
t he defunct bank is not even exhausted
before the board comes to the other
banks for a levy.
"The law inspires bankers to plunge
into all kinds of business. For in
stance, a banker may start out in
the townsite sale business. If ho losci
we pay the bills. If he wins then of
course we lose nothing.
"Hankers are uneasy all the time.
They stand responsible for the de
posits in banks conducted by persons
absolutely unknown to them.
"The law is wrong in principal and
wrong in every way.'"
Mr. Dimery recently bought the
controlling interest in a bank in a town
near Tulsa and so far the state board
has assessed him only S57G for the
failure of other banks.
