DIVORCE LAWS CONDENSED A. Rnshvllle Minister Thinks They are Simply Terrible. The Bev. Charles W. Tinsley, pin- tor of St. Paul's M. E. church of Rushville, in a recent sermon attacked the divorce laws of Indiana, among other things saying: "The system of modern divorce for every - trivial. cause is egal'zed robbery of childhood. The divorce laws of Indiana are a disgrace to civilized so- jiety. They permit progressive polygamy—a marriagts today, then a divorce tomorrow and a marriage the day after. It is more indecent in many cases than Mormon polygamy, where a man is bound to provide tor his plural wives. Our aws should make divorce difficult and marHase permanent. Since 1S67 divorces have Increased Sthree times as fast aa the population. From 1867 to 1887—twenty years-^there were as many divorces in Bush Bounty (41) as in the entire Dominion of Canada, with a population of nearly 5,000,000, and Indiana stood first In the Union according to population. Why? Because In Indiana divorce is easy. Any one of seven causes. But In Canada divorce Is very difficult—through a committee In, the senate ol! the Dominion Parliament. ; The?e Is no more serious and vital quesUon before us as a people than lints, which thrusts at the very heart ot public virtue."
