She began her second matrimonial adventure on August 31, 1918, and yesterday she ceased her experience with her second husband. A little over three months proved long enough, according to the petition she has filed in the superior court. And it is a rather strange cause that she bases her complaint upon. By her first marriage with Beck she had two children. In the divorce which was granted the defendant was made to pay a certain amount of money for the support of the children. These payments were made monthly. Beck, became wise to this and at the time the payments were being made, he would demand that the money be turned over to him, and if the plaintiff refused, he did not hesitate to leave the marks of his vengance on her body.

  • 05 Jan 1919 Frank Wagner has filed complaint for divorce from his wife, Leonora Wagner. The wife has a friend George - last name is not given, and it would seem that she preferred the company of the "stranger in the house" more than her rightful spouse. In his petition he states that there was no hesitancy in her ordering his away to make room for the stranger. He complied with her request, for he is a good natured fellow. In the first episode he remained away for a couple weeks, and George must have been cutting up, because she got in tough with her husband and implored him to return. Good naturedly, he complied with the women's request, but again the force of George's argument became dominant and Wagner was again invited to beat it; he did. Wagner went so far as to ask Leonora why George had won such a spell over her, and she told him that it was none of his business. At this part of the story she laid on the poor abused husband with her fista, and not satisfied with this broke the broom over him, and he was compelled to leave the house. Outraged decency at last caused him to take stringent measures and he applied for a divorce. He has property valued at $4,500 which is in the wife's name. He asks the court to adjudicate this partnership. Wagner has lived in this county and city for forty-five years, and is a railroad hostler.

  • 19 Feb 1919 What is proving to be the most sensational divorce case which has ever been tried in Fort Wayne, is now being heard before special Judge S. R. Alden, in circuit court. Parties to the suit are Edward M. Reese, who is assistant train master for the Pennsylvania railroad, and his wife Lou Claire Reese. The plaintiff gives his residence as 340 West Wildwood avenue, but he has made statement in his petition for the custody of his two children that he has not lived there since he began action for divorce, and has only been there ossasionally when he has gone to visit his children, and then always in the company of some friend or when defendant's mother was present. Not only is there interest in the suit for divorce, but there is represented in the deal bona fide stock in a western mine bearing face value of $960,000. Mrs. Reese has filed cross complaint denying each of the allegations of the plaintiff. There have been at stated intervals petitions filed for restraining order and for support this last October; petition by the husband for custody of the children filed last December and numerous other petitions and cross petitions. The most surprising evidence which was admitted by defendant's counsel that on a recent trip to Paradise, Arizona, the defendant was followed by a Fort Wayne attorney and no less than four detectives. It is in this face that the defendant attorneys are endeavoring to prove that there is a conspiracy on the part of Reese to blackmail one Raleigh O. Fife, the original owner of this $960,000 worth of stock, for being caught in a compromising position with plaintiff's wife, and that the divorce is more an excuse than anything else in effort to retain this large amount of stock. In the original complaint as well as in the petition for the custody of the children, the plaintiff avers that his wife has threatened him with bodily harm; that she was a confirmed scold; has repeatedly and frequently assaulted him with her hands as well as with articles which she could throw. For the last few years she has vener had a kind word for him she avers. He goes on in the petition to state that she has charged him with improper acts with other women. He states that she associated with Raleigh O Fife, a cousin of the defendant. In her cross complaint Mrs. Reese denies all the material allegations of the plaintiff in both paragraphs; that the facts stated in the cross complaint are true, and that she has a meritorious case. She goes on and cites that she has two children and that the little girl who is now eight years of age, was afflicted with infantile paralysis when she was a baby, and that the disease has left her in a very nervous condition and that she cannot stand any excitement, if fact it is dangerous to her health when anything occurs to excite her. The boy, she states is afraid of his father. And she states that the father has been cruel to the boy and has whipped him with a horsewhip on four different occasions; on one accasion with a leather belt with a metal buckle and the boy carried the evidence for days afterward. She states that the plaintiff is of a quarrelsome nature. She claims that he had denied the parentage of the boy in the presence of friends of the family.

  • 20 Feb 1919 In the divorce case of Reese vs. Reese, which is now being tried by Special Judge Alden, the second day was practically taken up with examination of witnesses. The plaintiff, Edward M. Reese, was put on the stand and for a long while he was cross examined by the attorneys for the defense. The mercenary motives of the plaintiff were brought out in this testimony, and it showed conclusively to what bounds he would go to gain riches. It was also shown how anzious he was that his wife go west - to Paradise, Arizona, to become acquainted with the value and working of a gold mine. He endeavored to make his wife acquainted with the fact that Raleigh O. Fife owned $2,000,000 worth of stock in this mine. He admitted rehearsing with the detectives the plans which were to be pulled off. It was brought out in his evidence that Detective Carey, who was acting in that capacity at the passenger station of the Pennsylvania railroad at Chicago, had left his job for the special purpose of following Mrs. Reese to the west, and for no more money than he was getting in the position he held at the passenger station. The attorneys for the defense brought out the fact that Reese has hunted among the best secret service men of the Pennsylvania railroad in order to get the right men for the job. The plaintiff admitted that he had arranged with his mother to send a fake telegram to his wife, so that she would be compelled to make the journey to the far west. When Mrs. Reese called his attention to the fact that she did not care to go and that it would not be right to expect her to stay entirely among strangers for so long, he made the excuse that she would have for her neighbors her relatives. It is not likely that the case will be completed today.
