LOCAL MATRIMONIAL CASE. COME TO CHAPEL AND BE RESPECTABLE. A Wife Obtains a Separation Order. Mary Ann Jones, the wife of William Ohria" mas Jones, a printer, residing in Upper Kincraig- street, Cardiff, is a woman w hose life is not a bed of roses. Hor husband behaved towards her ia a brutal manner, and her own people would not interfere, and her mother told her "to be respect- able and come to chapel" when the daughter complained. She refrained from taking proceedings against her husband for some time because he was secretary to the Welsh Sunday School Union, The husband, however, went a step too far. with the result that he was heavily fined for committing an aggravated assault upon his wife. This did not conclude the case, for the parties again ap. peared before Mr T. W. Lewis (stipendiary magistrate) at the Cardiff Police Court this mormnir, when Mr A. Rees (representing the plaintiff) applied for a judicial separation. Me George David (David and Evans) opposed. Mr Rees proposed to go into previous vawatdbg. The Sbipendiary That is not necessary. If he has been convicted for an aggravated assault that is sufficient to make an order. Mr David said lie was going to contend that such was not tho case, and proceeded to argue that the assault must be the cauee of the wife leaving the husband. After a long argument upon the temis ol the section of the Act, the Stipendiary said he thought plaintiff was entitled to an order. Mr David Of course, sir, if you take that view there is no answer to it. The only answer I proposed to give was that her leaving w.,s not leaving in consequenco of this assault. Therw were other reasons which induced her to leave and which were not a justification for her leaving. The Stipendiary: That may be so, but it appears to mo that if the husband is connoted of an aggravated assault the wife ia entitled to ar order. The question of means was then gone into, and a weekly wage of 30. was admitted. In answer to the Stipendiary, plaintiff said ah* was not 18 when she married, and had not beer accustomed to any business. An order was made for 8:3 per week, tht husband to pay costs, and the adjudication in tho assault case was altered. The fine of AS and costs was reduced to E3 including oosts, withA week to find tho money.
