The romance of August Doerner, the

Mrs. Julia Korgan, wealthy residents of
I,ew1a township, which begun at the Seventh-Day

bringing suit for divorce.
Friday young Doerner was bound over to
keep the peace towards his wife, after a
hearing In Justice Omen's court on a
charge of threatening to kill lu-r. This,
however, did not satisfy Mrs. Doerner,
whose dream of married bliss had been,
rudely shattered In less than a year, and
yesterday aha began suit for divorce and
caused an attachment for $S00 to be Issued
against a crop of corn and a team owned
by her husband, to prevent disposition
pending the determination of the suit. Mrs.
Doerner alleged In her, petition that her
husband was preparing to leave the slate .
without making provision for her or their
Infant son, of whom she asks the court
to give her the custody. . .
As grounds for the divorce Mrs. Doerner
alleges cruel a'nd Inhuman treatment. The
petition recites a number of Instances when
Dogrnor is alleged to have cruelly beaten
and choked Into Insensibility his young
wife. Doerner Is a highly educated young
man and the son of one of the most prom

DES MOINES, Sept. 2G.-(Speclal.)-The
evidence has been concluded In the Richards
trial at Indlanola and tho argume'nts were
commenced this afternoon. Tho testimony
of the defense was brief but is declared to
have been very strong. Richards, the ac
cused ex-deputy marshal, did not go on
the stand In his own defense. Mrs. Richards
testified, and also others, to atiibllsh an
alibi for the defendant, ai..l while the
testimony for the state seemed almost Im
pregnable It was admitted by attorney
today that Richards had made out an ex
cellent alibi. The best testimony In his
defense was from a man who declared he
sa v Richards on a train going to Albla
at tho very time the' robbery was com
mitted, nnd jho was absolutely sure of the
facts. Much testimony wos Introduced to
show that Richards stood high among the
officials who had dealt with him. -Thomas
