Hoover Divorce Case In Supreme Court
The Lincoln Daily Star ban the fol
The brief of Valeria W. Hoover,
plaintiff in error, against John S. Hoc
ver, defendant in error, hns been tiled
in the supreme court. The matter is
the appeal of a divorco caso from Blue
Hill, Neb. It appears from the record
that Mrs. Hoover was engaged in clerk
ing In a cigar stand in the Millard
hotel in Umana. While there she be
came acquainted with Hoover and
after a nbort courtship married him.
The couple, of which Mr. Hoover is the
elder partner, took up their residence
t Blue Hill. They were maided Au-,
gust 7, 1001.
Things moved along well until April
1902, at wbicb time Hoover became ill.
Fearing- that. Be was going to die he
made a will, making substantial pro
vision for Mrs. Hoover. Hoover had
8elvMalchlldro by his Hct wife. Thev
leurned of the will and it -vas later re
voked. Mrs. Hoover remained with
her sick husband until about June 4,
1002, and then went to Omaha to her
parents. Soon after Hoover began di
vorce proceedings, cbargiog cruelty
and habitual drunkenness, according
to tho brief of ibo plaintiff in error.
Tho hearing of the divorco wns post
poned once and on the HdhI day of
trial tho defendant in error, her wit
nesses and counsel, were prevented
from attendeding owing to tho derail
ment of an engine attached to their
train. Hoover was awarded the do
cree prayed for.
Mrs. Hoover would liko to have tho
decree set aside for this reason and de
nies that she was or is a habitual
drunkard. The brief contains several
extracts from tho testimony in the
lower court concerning tho liquor
question. Tho plaintiff in error ill
logos that the defendant knew that
she drank when he married her, and
refers to Ids testimony to show that ho
was aware of the fact. A portion of
the testimony is as follows:
"Did you ever drink jth her before
y u were married?"
"I have uken beer with her "
f "How much beer?"
"Not very much, because I mver
liked it well enough to take much
of it."
"Did she take much on these visits?"
'She took about all I could buy, I
guess. Oh, no; It was just a matter of
sociability. We 'would probably drop
in some place to got something to eat,
and she would drink one and I would
take one."
"'Jid you ever drink more than one
glass with hoi?"
"Don't ask mo so foolish questions."
"How many glasses did you ever
drink with her to one sitting?"
"I don't think I over drank more
than ono glass to a time. 1 don't think
she ever drank more than two."
"Did you ever drink any whisky
with her?"
"We didn't diink whisky. I think
on one or two occasions we took a
highball or whisky sour, that Is all. I
want to tell you all about it, so you
will understand it. I bad been in their
house quite often and visited them,
and I never saw them drink a drop of
whisky in tbo house, hero when the old
Where did you drink tho whisky or
beer with her?"
"That is a bard question to answor.
I might have drank it at Ed Morris'.
Wo didn't go into a whisky shop."
