ITS FEARFUL FLAWS.
A Marriage License Law Full of Op
portunities for Evasion.
THE CHANCE Ml A THUG TO WORK
And the Clear Invitation to the Prospective
Bride to be Absent. '
KOT COlirULSOEY. FOE ESOCH AEDEX
According to Register Connor the mar
riage license law does not so much need
amendment, in the matter and manner sug
gested by Legislator Hall, of Mercer, as iu
some other particulars. Mr. Connor says it
is to loosely drawn as to permit ot two con
structions, and he puts the one on
it, when parties wish it, that dis
penses with the prospective bride's
presence, though Rccistcr Hocrr made
both come to the center. Mr. Connor says
that, while the word "parties" is used,
there is nothing in the act that compels
both bride and groom to apply, and he dis
penses with the bride's attendance where
the parties agree to produce evidence satis
factory that they are fit subjects ior the
He states that the Register of Westmore
land county has scruples that cause consid
erable expense to the blissful couple at
times, such as hiring a livery rig to so to
the residence of the woman's parents or
guardians, and of course ihe contracting
parties foot the bill.
a seniors defect indeed.
Mr. Connor calls attention to a defect in
the law, by which it is possible for the
meanest tough in the county to procure a
license granting him permission to matry
one of the best women in it, and she be pow
erless to prevent publication of the scandal.
He also calls attention to a delect in the
marriage law of 1810. Under it, if a pair
marry aud the man disappear, and there is
a rumor of his death, the woman may marry
again without being subject to penalty; but,
should he turn up again subsequently, the
second husband is obliged to vacate. Take
a case in point: A man left his wife in
England, and, after long waiting, she beard
he was drowned. Alter an unsuccessful
search in this country, she gave
him np for dead. A man wished
to marry her, and she was inclined
that wav herself. She could not swear that
her husband was dead, and lawyers told her
there was no legal impediment. But Mr.
Connor says that, under this new law, there
does not seem to he permission for her
ALL TIIE ACT HAS TO SAY
on the matter is that the Clerk of the Court
thall inquire relative to the legality of the
marriage. A man needn't be an Enoch
Arden unless he wishes to.
There teems to be a popular conviction
that it is as hard to draw a younglady's age
from her as to ''draw out Leviathan with a
hook:" but Mr. Connor's experience dis
nroves the belief. He says it is painful to
listen to some girls swear they are 21
years of age when the most super
ficial observer can see they are several
years younger, and this.hc says, is of fre
quent occurrence. It is said that many
Massachusetts women lost their voles a few
weeks ago rather than swear to their ages;
hut marriage seems to be aj-tronger induce
ment to make one of the greatest sacrifices a
woman knows, than the temptation to vote,
even in Massachusetts.
A CARRIER BO!' HURT.
Face and Head Torn br Ibc Terror of News
Agents, Ferocious Dogs.
Clarence Saxtoa is The Dispatch
agent at Edgeworth, and a well-thought-of
yonng man, by the way. Early Saturday
morning he became involved in a discussion
with that terror of all newspaper deliverers,
He was badly cut and scratched about the
face and head, and, according to the story
of Mr. Clapp, of the firm of Hunt & Clapp,
lie screamed terribly and they were obliged
to drive the dogs away.
Mr. Clapp does not'think the dogs reallv
ferocious, as the boy playR with them every
day, and besides they are of the gentle St.
Bernard and shepherd breeds. Neverthe
less the boy's scratched and torn face and
scalp bear testimony to their claws, if not
For a long while a collie dog on Aiken
avenue was a menace to late or early passers
by, bui he was finally placed where all
lerocious dogs belong, in a kennel.
