I want to emphasize in this particular case what I said on the motion which I made in the earlier part of the session in reference to this question of divorce. If there ever was a case in which the grounds of relief were beyond controversy it is this case. You can hardly conceive of a case in which the proof was easier than in this one, and yet this woman, unfortunately linked to a bad man, and having just ground for the dissolution of the marriage tie, is put to an expense, exclusive of what she paid her own lawyer, amounting to $458 in actual disbursements. That is an example of the difficulty of persons of limited means obtaining redress in cases where the law of the land concedes redress shall be granted. Without enlarging the ground on which divorce is to be
obtained, but simply in a case in which we all concede divorce is warranted, the expense is practically a bar to many persons.
