Chicago. Nov. 19. Mrs. Minnie Wal-lace-Walkup.
with the evident purpose
of divesting her marriage to John &
Ketcham of all mystery, and sweeping
away once for all the stories, insinua
tions and theories of those who would
discredit her, yesterday told of the whole
transaction. She said: "I need not speak
of the incident leading up to my con
tent to become John Ketcham's wife.
That is an old story now, but of our trip
to Milwaukee. The butler, hackmen, po
lice, minister and newspapers have all
told their stories, while I alone have re
mained silent. I understand that Oie
composite result Is that somebody any
body but John B. Ketcham acted at
bridegroom, and that I obtained my
marriage certificate by fraud.
Why tha Marriage Waa Secret.
"Do I need to explain why we decided
on a secret marriage? Simply because of
the danger of the sensation that Ketch
aril's divorce from his former wife and
nay own unhappy experience would un
doubtedly have been revived in connec
tion with a public announcement cl our
marriage. We therefore decided to wed
tecretly and went to Milwaukee for that
purpose. Ketcham and I, accompanied
ty my butler. Joseph Keller, who acted
as Ketcham's valet, went to Milwaukee
on the evening of Sept. 23. We went to
the Planklnton.House, where we secured
a suite of rooms, being registered as Mr.
and Mrs. Tour.g and servant. This was
done simply to Insure the secrecy of our
Willing to Aawer Any Question.
"Early next mrrnlng Mr. Ketcham and
I went to a minister's house, where we
were married. After breakfast we took
the 11 o'clock train for Chicago. Con
trary to my wishes Ketcham told Keller
when we returned to the hotel that we
were married." Mrs. Ketcham went In
to other detail of the Milwaukee trip,
and reiterated her willingness to answer
any question that remained the subject
of doubt or mystery. The coroner's Jury
will meet today, and will be adjourned
probably until Monday, aa the chemical
analysis of the stomach ia Bot yet com
pleted. WORKIXO THE MILWACKEK EXDl
atoriM Dag i That Differ aa the Moat
Chicago, Nov. 19. Did John B. Ketch
am marry Mabel Wallace-Walkup at
Milwaukee Sept 21. or waa tome one else
aultituted far him? And If some one
else was substituted what was the mat
ter with John B. Ketcham that he sup
posed all along It waa himself (for no
one has come'forward to say that Ketch
am denied hi marriage of the woman)?
There are severaLnuestions that will be
answered before this Ketcham business
ia done with. A local paper has a corre
spondent at Milwaukee who declares
those whe caw the couple aay the man
was a short man shorter than the bride
while Ketcham waa taller than Mrs.
Wallace, and the correspondent takes up
a lot of apace to make' and prove that
statement. The butler. Keller. Is a
short man. but he has a mustache, and
all stories agree that the man who waa
married was clean-shaven.
Then there are other correspondents
who declare those who saw the couple
at Milwaukee aay that they (the couple)
were Ketcham and Mrs. Wallace. Mrs.
Wallace and her lawyer are taking things
easy, that Is one fact; it Is the other side
that Is doing all the talking, as Riven
In these dispatches yesterday. The police
nave had Keller, the butler, in the
weatbox." and would probably have
him there yet if Mrs. Ketcham's lawyer
nad not threatened, habeas corbus pro
ceedings. He Is at liberty now. He told
the police that Mrs. Wallace and Ketch
am were married at Milwaukee Sept. 24;
that W e all came home together that
same afternoon. Mrs. Wallace and Mr.
Ketcham have been living together as
man and wife for nearly a year."
A Milwaukee story which is for the al
leged widow's claim Is that those who
w the weddir.g are sure that whoevc-
the bridegroem was he was plainly 111
and had been ill for a long time. From
the newspaper pictures of Ketcham and
the butler. Mr. Roberts, Mrs. Hunsber
ger and Miss Melrsch agree that the
chances are strongly in favor of the
bridgegroom at the strange wedding hav
ing been Ketcham himself. The pictures,
however, show a man In good health,
while the man who waa married could
hardly stand from illness and weakness.
Mrs. Wallace arrived In Milwaukee the
night before the wedding with two men,
one Ketcham and the other the butler.
