The high court has been growing increasingly critical of the state's 90-day statute ns regards persons coming lo Arkansas in order to lake advantage of the 90-dav residential requirement. The court's declaration was contained in an opinion written by , Associate Justice Frank o Smith < which reversed n decree granted Apr. 33 to Prank Murphy of St. Loi?™ Mo against Mrs. Honoroli Murphy | Thc court nlso warned chnncel- •lors to "be careful" in u lc administration of the 90-day statute "Our 50-day divorce law lias been .frequently vpheld by this court as ' 0 ' bC "' g bcj ' 01d lhc bC ",' g , bcj ' 01 l d lhc as ar the man, who never, even for 80 (lays, became a resident of this stnle, gave an improper address, which made it Impossible to notify his wife that she hnd been sued, and she remained In Ignorance of that fnct unlll after she Imd been divorced. "Such divorces have, n 'mail order' appearance and we shall not hesitate (o set them aside, even though the divorced party shall have remarried before we have the opportunity, and, however innocent, tile second wife mny be, we cannot permit such frauds to be practiced upon the courts o! this state."

As re- SslaTion^ r f> " J» * ««• I ^ «»*"«« Arkansas or times used In obtaining unconlcst- cd decrees. The defense lawyer filed a report with the court In which lie said he hnd addressed ft letter to Mrs. Murphy nl 1460 Sprouie avenue, St. Louis, advising her oi thc divorce proceedings. Tlie letter, which had been relumed unopened, wns attached to the report. "It Is admitted that plaintiff (Mr. Murpliy) furnished this ad- drc.tt, nnd It is admitted also that he knew this \va.s not (fie address oi his wife," thc opinion said. Justice Smith explained tbnt the nddre.is was that oi Mr. Murphy's former home, nnd Hint Mrs. Mur- Phy Imd never lived there. When confronted with this charge, Mr. Murphy said he hnd given his own former address "Inadvertently." Before Mrs. Smith learned of the stilt, a decree wns granted at Dly- theville February 27. 1933. Mr. Murpliy waited two weeks nnd then married Beatrice Marie Cornwall of St, Louis. During the years of tliclr separation Mr. Murphy had his wife n divorce. The tribunal snid he refused to tell her where the divorce was granted, but tlmt she gained this Information inlcr. Mrs. ffonorah Murphy filed n motion in Mississippi Chnncery Court lo vncnte thc decree, The lower court refused and she np- pcalcd to the Supreme Court. Mr. Murphy nnd his second wife continued their married life nl si Louis until January, 19rJ, when they experienced their own troubles. The second Mrs. Murpliy filed suit for divorce nt St. Louis, charging that he assaulted her nnd sent her lo the hospital wllh n concussion of thc brain. Mrs. Honorah Murphy relumed lo Blythcvllle February 27. 19« and appeared below Chancery Court with another plea to set aside tlic divorce. Mrs. Beatrice Murphy charged that her husband and his first wife "conspired" by mutually agreeing that their divorce .-'-- thai Mrs. Honorah Murpliy withdrew her nppcnl to the Supreme Court tifter the decree wns set aside, but Mrs. Beatrice Murpliy filed an Intervention, alleging that thc Chancery Court wns without jurisdiction when It voided the divorce because nu appeal to thc Supreme Court wns pending nt that time.
