Obituary

DEATH OF LORD G. GORDON.
FAMOUS "BABY" LITIGATION RECALLED.

Information was received in London recently of the death at sea, between Suez and Aden, of Lord Granville Armyne Gordon, brother and heir-presumptive of the Marquis of Huntly (says an English exchange).

Lord Granville Gordon, who was 51 years old, appeared prominently in the law courts in connection with the famous "Gordon Baby" case. He was co-respondent in the case ln which his cousin, Mr. C. F. Gordon, obtained a divorce from his wife. Lord Granville Gordon married the lady, but the petitioner obtained an order for the custody of the child. Mrs. Gordon, who alleged that Lord Granyille Gordon was the father of the child, chartered a Gravesend tug and carried the child to France, out of the jurisdiction of the English court.

Lord Granville Gordon had a varied and adventurous career. He was keenly interested in racing, wrote a volume of "Sporting Reminiscences," including grouse driving at Lowther Castle with the German Emperor and shooting in Wyoming, a racing novel, "Warned Off," and a spiritualistic work, entitled "Notes from Another World."

Lady Granville Gordon is an American, and she is understood to be travelling in the States with her daughter. When she was married to Mr. C. F. Gordon she was the widow of Mr. James Close, a wealthy man who was killed while playing polo in 1899.
