DIVORCE EASY IN NEBRASKA
Judge 8utto Thinks the Law Allowi Too
DIVORCES SAME DAY PETITION IS FILED
On Hundred anil Korty-Fonr Drcrera
l.rantril by Three Kqaitr Jnde
In Donf Ui Count? Since
Omaha's dlvnrrp eulnny, or nsKrofratlon,
Is not so conspicuous In tlie putillc mind as
the one for vhlch Hloux Falls Is noted
throughout th country. Omaha, of couti",
Is Hti eminently rrsjHCtable and highly con
servative clly, In a sodul srn.r, and the
flocking hi-r of ill."! (.nt. ntnd ImttcrMlfS and
maritally rnnukd mulo citizens would not
be welcomed or encouraKed. Vet It is
doubtful if even Ploux Fulls can Fhow the
divorce record year in and year out that
the three equity courts of Douglas county
make. And U niii.il he remembered that
the divorce mill cmw i to grind during va
cation. No divorce cases are considered
during July, August and September.
It Is not an uncommon thing for a pe
tition to he filed and the divorce granted
the same day. Ti ls has occurred at least
twice within the past four weeks. In eaeh
case there seemed to be nothing for the
Judge to do but to grant a decree. The
first case was that of an editor of a
country paper In Iowa against whom his
wife filed a petition. The title of the case
was Harriet H. J. Hughes against Alonzo
P. The petitioner was a widow when
Hughes married her In June. and
has at least one grown child. She loaned
him at different times money to the amount
of ll.OCO. He would be engaged at his print
ing office In Iowa all week and would come
to Omaha only on Saturday to stay over
Sunday. Of the money loaned the wife
succeeded In getting back $."oQ, then sued for
divorce on the ground of desertion. Hughes
waived service of the oomplulnt and en
tered a voluntary appearance on the day
the petition was filed. Judge Sears heard
the testimony the Bame day and granted
the divorce, at the same time ordering
the defendant to pay to his divorced wife
$600 In Installments.
neerher r a Swift One.
The most most recent case of quick action
was on the petition of Theodore Beecher
against Mary. This petition was filed In
district court on June 27 and Mrs. Beecher
waived service and entered a voluntary
personal appearance on the same day. In
few hours Theodore Beecher was again
a free man. He Is a saloon keeper at 32
Bherrnan avenue and his charges against
the woman, whom he married at Council
Bluffs, In December, 1S5S, were substan
tiated to that extent which warranted the
granting of a decree by Judge Sears.
In both these cases the court was pre
sented with what he deemed sufficient
reasons for tho hurry-up work done, and
the waiver of service and voluntary ap
pearance brought tho parties Into court
Since January 1, 196, Judge Sears has
granted eighty-two divorces, Judge Sutton
has granted freedom to forty-nine petition
ers and Judge Troup has made thirteen ap
plicants more or less happy. A great many
cases carried over from Inst year were dis
missed for want of prosecution, and a few
petitions have been denied. A goodly pro
portion of the decrees has been granted
through default of defendants, many of
whom are non-residents.
Jodare Sutton's Views.
Discussing the divorce work of the courts
from personal experience, Judge Sutton
"This Is a matter that Is enagaging the
attention of students of sociology every
where, and In Nebraska It presents about
the same features, I presume, as elsewhere.
I have no doubt that some people come
here with the set purjose of securing a di
vorce. Where we ran be at all certain that
this Is so the judges exercise all the care
possible under the law to ascertain the
facta. Only recently a case In my court was
reported In The Bee wherein tho husband
sought to secure a divorce on the ground
of cruelty and desertion. The wife was
said to be living in St. Louis and after
hearing the plaintiff's testimony I ordered
that personal notice be served on the wife.
This being done, she at once put in an
answer setting up allegations which caused
the plaintiff to withdraw his suit, practi
cally. This cannot always be done, but
where It can the courts exercise as wide a
discretion as they can.
"I have In mind another case before me
the past week which la typical of a good
many. A wife-was suing her husband for
divorce on the ground of failure to prop
erly support her. Questioning developed the
til fact to be that the husband Is getting
a salary of J45 a month, from which he re
tained about $15 for his own purposes,
clothing, tobacco and things of that kind.
The salary Is small and the wife was not
getting much money. It Is true, but the
man was giving her all he could every pay
day and I denied her petition.
Cause and Remedy.
"Most of our divorce cases, as nearly as
I can figure It out, are the result of this
condition of affairs: A young man gets
married, he at the time holding a fairly
good Job. The couple buys household fur
niture on the Installment plan and as long
as the husband has work they get along all
right. Then comes a day when the position
Is lost and soon the money question be
comes the ir:ost Important in that house
hold. Discontent Is not lung Is developing,
