A LOUGHORJDTVORCE SUIT. 1 IMPORTANT POINT DECIDED ON I APPEAL. A question of somo importance was decided on Monday by Lords Justices Lindley, A. L. Smith, and Rigby, on the appeal of the petitioner in the divorce action Saunders v. Saunders from the dis- missal by Justice Barnes of his application for liberty to proceed without naming- a co-respondent. The parties were married at the registry office, Llanelly, in 1888, and there were four children of the marriage. The petitioner, a coal miner, left England in 1894, and on his return in May, lfe96, found that his wife had in the previous month given birth to a child. According to his affidavit, he ascerta,ined that she took out a summons against a man, alleging that he was the father of the child, but he absolutely denied the accusation, and on the adjourned hearing of the summons he did not appear. The petitioner did not, therefore, charge against that particular person, but he sub- mitted that under the circumstances, it was reasonable that he should be allowed to proceed without a co-respondent. Lords Justices Lindley and Rigby were of opinion that the appeal should be allowed, but Lord Smith came to the opinion that Mr. Justice Barnes was right in retusing- leave. In accordance with the opinion of the majority of the court, the order of the coutt below was discharged, and leave was given to proceed without naming a co-respondent. Mr. Priestly (instructed by Mr. W.Howell, solicitor, of Llanelly,) appeared for the appealing petitioners.
