An Intllignniit Officer.
Officer Thomas gained a little un-
ileasant notoriety yesterday. Ho was
ipproachetl on the street by Dr.
mends , and the latter , who had appar
ently been drinking , began to speak
abusively of the officer's wife , applying
all manner of vile epithets to her. This
was more than Thomas could endure ,
and ho struck Einonds across the face
with his open hand. The latter per
sisted in his abuses and Thomas struck
dim again. Bystanders then interfered
and the officer left the spot. There had
been bad blood between the parties for
some time. Emends was a former suitor
for the hand of Mrs. Thomas , but his at
tentions were not favorably received by
that lady. It is reported that the doc
tor tried on several occasions to make
trouble between Thomas nnd his
ntfianced , but was unsuccessful. After
the couple were married. Emends made
out a bill for professional services
and put it in the hands of
Ovido Vion for collection. When it
was presented , Thomas waxed wroth ,
and stated that ho had never owed
Einonds a dollar in his life , and that the
latter know bettor than to present the
bill himself , as it would win for him a
broken head. The two met on the
street yesterday , as stated , and Emends
remarked that ho understood that the
ollicer was going to kill him. Thomas
denied over saying anything of the
kind , but intimated that he had better
not jjresent a bill. Emends became very
abusive , and blows ensued. The officer
immediately overstepped his bounds
from a legal point of view , as the law
distinctly says that no words can justify
an assault , but the spectators say that
Einonds did not get half his just deserts.
His language is described as being most
abusive and exasperating , as well as an
uncalled for attack upon the wife of a

luarncd from the hcaJquarturs of that
newspaper tl.at the controversy evoked sev
eral thousand communications , four-ilftbs of
vhluhvcro clinfT , but the remainder sin
cerely written uiM making pleasant reading.
Mrs. Mona Cainl , whoso Review article had
iislrcd | ) the discussion , Is now being lionized ,
iut In reality she was anticipated a few
ears ago by George Lcwh , In au article en-
itled "Marriage and Ulvorco" In the Fort

'opularly ' the letter "H" has been dropped ,
coclcnoywlsc , ami ho Is called familiarly by
everybody by his two minrjs only. 1 found
lim recently cheerily walking through the
groups of waiting clients in the immense-
nanslon , once tno pataco of the bishops of
Cly , wherein Is his suite of oniccs.
"Vcs , " said he , adjusting his traditional
eye-glasses and Insensibly gliding Into his
veil-known persuasive tone , "I folio wed the
lowspapcr discussion during my sliort vaca-
ion and was most amused with the airy
lothlngness which characterized the corre-
pondencc. Few of the writers seemed to
ipprcclato the gravity of the subject. "

Mr. Lews . "Some

"Happily * yes. I always prefer to antici

"Then pit-Imps you can answer the qucs-

" 1 am fully on record ns to that Inquiry m
my article , written at the request of Mr. E.
Scott when he conducted the Fortnight ly
Heview. Your question was debated thirty
years ano , when the divorce act of Palmer-
Uon's government was passing. Since then
the decisions in our divorce courts have tried
and furrowed the features of not a few of
our English homes. Many injustices
liave operated , notably on women ,
and class amendments must inevita
bly bo introduced. Particularly , the
position of women under the divorce law
should be assimulated to that of man. I
have in my article written thus : 'Divorce at
present is a perquisite of the man. The law
empowers man , hownvor monstrous his own
maiital conduct may have been , to turn his
wife into the street , and separate her from
every intercourse with her children , or leave
her to starve m the workhouse , if in a mo
ment of weakness she forgets her marriage
vows. Hut the woman , who has been sub
jected to her husband's open and continuous
adultery , even under the conjugal roof , is
unable to obtain a divorce only separation
unless he has been gullity of cruelty or two
years' desertion as well as adultery. Our
act in this respect displays blind ignorance
of domestic tragedies. It is drawn with the
selfish object of ministering to man's worse
Jealousies without attempting to give woman
equal claims over the fidelity of her hus
band. I believe the time is not far distant
when woman will raise an effective outcry
against the abuse of the present system.1"
"Practically what is your remedy for the
"In addition to their present rights women
ought to bo entitled to a divorce for cruelty
endangering life , for two years and upward
desertion without reasonable cause , for ths
adultery of the husband committed In her
home or elsewhere , if under disgraceful and
aggravating cicuumstanccs , and for.tho con
viction and sentence of the husband to live
years and upward penal servitude for crime. "
"What about insanity ! "
"If incurable for two yeaos , there should
bo divorce to cither party. "
The interview was closed by Mr. Lewis
turning to the consideration of another par
liamentary Job , the huge papers as to which
labelled "Ho Parnell-Times
were - Commis
sion , " on which matter ho is to be in the con
duct of the homo rulers' side.
There are not half a dozen men In Great
Hritain who could give sounder opinions on
the subject ns to whether marriage is a fail
ure then Montague Williams. Ho held the
most extensive practice us a barrister ever in
the hands of one man in the London criminal
courts for years. Now , owing to the failure
of his voice , ho has become the most popular
magistrate of the London metropolitan bench ,
and everyday has to deal with numerous dis
affected husbands and wives. I called upon
him and asked his ideas on the "Marriage a
Said he ; "You are wrong in supposing
that people who como to mo in court seeking
separation arc of the lower classes. Women
are nearly always the complainants. "
"What power have you to right their
wrongs ) "
"For separation from bed and board I have
powers Just as strong as those obtaining in
the divorce court. The law was generally
construed by magistrates that if a woman
came into court and could show that her
husband was guilty of cruelty and violence ,
a judicial separation should bo given and the
husband ordered to * make an allowance of so
much per week , in accordance with his
means. At the saiqo time the husband was
sent to prison. Hut I got hold of the act and
read it through carefully. I conceived that
it was not necessary to send the man to
prison , for by so doing I should disable him
from making the allowance to thn woman by
stopping his pay. Therefore , if it can pos
sibly bo avoided , I "do not send the man to
orison , but I grant Reparation and allowance.
This course I proposu , continuing until it bo
appealed against successfully in the higher
"Doesn't that make a dissolution marriage
rather easy I"
"No , not too much so. I exercise my dis
cretion. Besides , us a'rule the women have
children to maintalni'Hiid if they are subse
quently proved to bo Jiving in adultery I im
mediately stop the allowance. "
"Do you considcr.hiatriago a failure among
the poor of London'lJM
"Yes ; very oftenJJut I am not prepared
with a remedy. The worst cases are those
of rash young people , clerks on small pay ,
who marry pennyless shop girls. They have
not sufllcient to hvo upon. The man soon
finds his homo uncomfortable. What was
enough for one was not enough to keep the
house up. Ho gets his wages , and instead
of taking them homo ho Is tempted to spend
them In the public house. "Then ho goes
homo and beats his wife. Such uro a largo
number of cases In which marriage is a fail
"Would you suggest n matrimonial com
mission to sit upon young couples about to
marry ! "
Mr. Montague Williams smiled. "No , " ho
said , "not quite so bad ( as that. Hut every
body would be doing good who should do
everything in their power to btop these Im
prudent marriages. "
"What do you think of the state of people
who live as married couples m the east end
without being married ! "
"Very bad , very bad. A great deal moro
than half of the couples in the cast
end .aw unmarried. In a largo
number of these case * the men send
their ivsmeti out to earn a llvlnp nt nlpht by
Immoral means. Hero is another llugrant
example where the lack of marriage Is adls-
mnl failure. "
' In there no remedy ! "
"None tliat I can sue. It U n terrible state
of affairs without any remedy that 1 can
"And with the tipper classes ! "
"Iho law requires amendments. As it
now stands It Is mudo by man for man. For
Instance n man can pet n divorce from a
woman for adultery , but a woman cannot
divorce a man for adultery unions coupled
with cruelty or desertion. When Judicial
separations arc granted In the divorce court ,
Justice Hull or Haiinan generally makes out
an order granting the woman alimony. "
"Ho you think uiarrlaco a failure In the
upper classes I"
"I think , " said Mr. Williams , dodging the
question , "that the upper classes often
think so from the number of divorces which
arc annually obtained by man and wife.
The number of made-up or collusive divorces
which arc obtained In the divorce court are
remarkable. If husband and wife agree , as
they so often Jo , on mutual divorce , nothing
Is easier than to prove cruelty and adultery
also , for the matter of that. 1 do not want
to mention names , as It would not
bo fair. Ono of the most open
cases Is that of u well-known M. ! . ,
out the matter was hushed up. Tlio
lady In question is the daughter of a duke ,
and is now a peeress. Marriage was cer
tainly a failure there. "
