An unusual case is under investigation by the District Attorney in Elmira, says the Millerton Advocate, wherein Mrs. James Clark, of Jackson Summit, alleges that her daughter, Emaline Clark, aged 13, was on May 25th last married to Joseph R. Graham, in Caton, by Justice Daniel Beckwith, of Pine City, and that on Jun 16th the same Joseph R. Graham was married to Florence Barber, of Mitchell's Creek, by the same Justice at Pine City. The Justice asserts that the first ceremony was not intended as a legal marriage, but was a fake ceremony to save Graham from being sent to jail for alleged criminal assault upon the Clark girl. Justice Beckwith alleges that he told Graham and the Clark girl at the time of the alleged marriage that it was only a joke and was not legal, but was intended for the purpose of keeping Graham out of prison for the alleged assault, which was alleged to have taken place in Pennsylvania and over which the New York state authorities have no jurisdiction. Graham and Miss Barber are now residing at Pine City and it is understood the Clark girl made an affidavit after the alleged marriage at Caton that the alleged assault was not committed by Graham, but by another man in Pennsylvania.
