Our readers will remember reading of the brutal manner in which William Mulholland kicked his wife at their home, in Superior township, last August, in which act he was encouraged by Tom Cowan, who, for his part in the affair, was tarred and feathered by his indignant neighbors. At that time Mrs. Mulholland declined to make complaint against her husband, thinking that the fact that her life was in danger for some days would opérate to restrain him from renewing his brutal assault. She was mistaken in this, for he beat her again last Saturday and threw several pails of water over her, after she had gone to bed, each time striking her with the pail. He was arrested and has been bound over to the circuit court on a charge of assault, with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. Since making complaint against her husband, Mrs. Mulholland has begun suit for divorce from hinf. In her bill she sets up that they were married February 22, 1892, and have one child six months old, that he came home drunk April 17, 1892, with several boon companions and kicked and struck her, that on July 14, 1892, he struck her and knocked her down, that on the following day he shamefully' kicked her, threw waterover her, threw her out of the house and threw her trunk after her. She also recounts his beating her into insensibility on August 13 of this year, at which time her life was dispaired of for many days. She estimates the value of his real estáte at $4,000 ánd his personal property at $500, Judge Kinne has granted an injunction restraining him from mortgag ing or selling it during the pending of the suit.
