Case of Bigamy. Mrs. Anna Schultz
was arrested yesterday by the Moiine
police and it is understood that she ad
mils that she is the wife of Andrew
Stolberg, who lives at 1010 Railroad av
enue, as well as the wife of W. J. F.
Schultz. proprietor of the Schultz hotel
at (J12 Third avenue. Saturday night
Mrs. Scimltz left Schultz ami went, to
where Stolberg was boarding to visit
him. Mr. Schultz had a warrant sworn
out charging her with adultery and
sh was arrested, lr is alleged that she
and Stolberg were married in Racine.
Wis., between three and four years
ago, where they Jived together and had
tffe child, which died. They then
moved here and separated and Mrs.
Schultz again took up her abode with
Mr. Schultz. Yesterday afternoon the
sensation was sprung when Schultz
himself got on the stand. He said:
"We were married in Davenport May
11. K'ul." However, he was asked to
produce the marriage license, which
he did. and which read. "August, 1SS9."
"This date was changed." he continued,
"to protect the birth of four of otir
children, who were born before May
11. 1901. We lived together 12 years
before we were married. We have ha 1
six children, all told, two of them being
born since we were legally married."
Andrew Stolberg was put on the stand
and he stated that they were married
April 1:1. l'.tOl, which shows that he had
first claim on her and thereby not guil
ty of any misconduct at all and conse
quently was discharged. Mrs. Schultz
will probably be prosecuted on a
charge of bigamy. Schultz was bound
over in bonds of on a charge of
fornication and the woman on a charge
of adultery; the bonds being the same.
