(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, April l.-(Speclal.)-Out of
a labyrinth of marriages, divorces, de
sertions and returns, tha upreme court of
Iowa ha figured It out that Ixjulsa Smith
of Farmlngton, la., is entitled to her
dower Interests and right In several farms
in Pottawattamie county which hrr late
husband sold during hi twenty years' de
sertion of her. Both were married before
their marriage to each other. Both were
deserted by their spouses and both were
married during the twenty years' desertion
of the husband. The decision of the su
preme court gives to Mrs. Smith the wife'
Interest In extensive properties.
Louisa Smith married a man named Syl
vsnders at Farmlngton, In Lee county, in
1S72. Three or four months after mar
riage he deserted her. He went to Burling
ton, or said he was going there, and never
again appeared. Frank E. Smith was then
living with a woman named "Nettie," who
subsequently left with a traveling man and
never appeared again. In 1S75 Louisa Syl
vandera and Frank E. Smith were man-led
in La Grange, Mo., according to Mrs.
Smith's testimony, though there Is no
record. They lived together as husband
and wife at Farmlngton till 1SS2, when
Smith left, saying he wss going to Council
Bluffs for a short time. He never re
appeared till 1902.
In the meantime Mrs. Smith married a
man named Dickinson at Farmlngton, and
he died, willing her Ids property. Smith
went to Council Bluffs and lived there
twenty years. He sold a tract of land to
one Rrbhards, representing himself to be
unmarried. In 1889 he married Ann Norton,
and sold subsequently two tracts of land In
which ahe joined In signing the deed. After
she died he sold another tract, signing his
name as a widower. Subsequently he mar
ried Mrs. Scheyll, from whom he was di
vorced In 1902. Then he returned to Farm
lngton and was re-marrled to his lawful
wife, Mrs.-Louisa Smith.
There were four suits Instituted In the
courts by Mrs. Smith to tecover her dower
right to the land In Pottawattamie county
sold by her husband during hia twenty
years absence. Those who bought the
lands registered and claim that Mrs. Smith
was never legally married to Smith be
cause the .death of her first husband
was never proven and that her marriage
during Smith's twenty years absence fur
ther operated against her claim. The dis
trict court decided In their favor. The
supreme court reversed this today and
decided In her favor.
Tha supreme court holds that Sylvan
ders was dead after seven years, accord
ing to tho custom of the courts and the
law of Iowa because he never reappeared
subsequently to disprove his death. It
holds that the marriage of Mrs. Syl
vanders and Smith' was legal because they
lived together and acknowledged each other
as husband and wife. That their marriages
during the twenty yeara were Illegal be
cause both were living, but that .' since
the ' spouse of both died this left their
relations the same and that they were
still legally married and the wife haa a
dower right to the farms.
In a decision given today the supreme
court holds that the city of Webster
City In Hamilton county Is responsible for
injuries to Mrs. C. B. Pace for falling
Into an open ditch In the street even
though a. private contracting firm had
opVned the ditch.
The supreme court reversed the case of
the state against Joseph Leslie, appellant,
of Pottawattamie county, charged with
wilful and malicious burning of railroad
ties because of an error of the district
court in instructing the jury as to the
meaning of the word "malicious."

Congressman Walter 1. Smith of the
Ninth district today filed his nomination
papers to have his name placed on the
primary elcctton ballot for the office of
congressman from the Ninth district. This
probably set at rest the stories that have
been circulated at times that lie Instead
of Senator Allison would ultimately be the
candidate for United States senator.

McCleery of Washington county today filed

Tuesday's election was the most
strenuous ever conducted In South
Omaha. Early in the day the Koutsky
slock began to take a rise and the demo
crats to flag. The resulta showed that the
men fought for most atrongly by the demo
crats, the mayor and las commissioner,
were detested. The republicans will dom
inate the city council, having a majority
with the major.
The Board of Education was one of t lie
hurdest battles and the xiemorrats won tao
members by a very small margin. II. ti.
Klddn is the republican member to be
elected and the board ia tied and it Is
likely that all differences will have-to be
settled by a compromise.
All of the old coyncllmen have been de
feated either at the primaries or at the
polls. The defeat of Hoctor, Uuecnan and
Vosacek marks the doom of the adminis
tration end of the ticket. The election of
C. A. MeK-her, J. J. Gillin and Bam L..
Winters repre.enla the final triumph of
the Gillin supporters In the demjeratic
tamp. The hantl of the Good Government
league was apparently felt In the lection,
as they had predicted it would oe.
