The Chicago (Slobe of yesterday
had the following particulars relat
ing to the sensational meeting on the
streets of Chicago of Mr. and Mrs.
George V. Kobenson, formerly of this
At the corner of Madison and Dear
born streets a sensational domestic
scene was enacted Wednesday after
noon when George Kobenson, con
nected with the construction depart
ment of the Hock Island railroad,
found his wife in the company of a
man named J. T. Talbott, who is
said to be the son of J. G. Talbott,
president of the Guarantee Invest
ment company, with an ollice in the
Adams express building, and also
general manager for the company
and one of the board of directors.
On the circulars which the company
sends out Nevada is given as his resi
dence. The storv is quite a romantic one
in which it is alleged that a faithless
wife, a masher and an irate husband
are the factors. It is said that some
time ago Mr. Kobenson. who lives at
Rock Island. 111., and owns some
mines in Arizona, sent his w ife there
for her health. He had no reason to
believe that she was elsewhere, ac
eordiii"r to the statements of his at
torney1! Mr. I 'lark, and when he had
occasion to come to Chicago yester
day on some business, he nearly went
wild with rage on tindiHg his wife
walking along Dearborn street at the
corner of Madison, with a well
dressed young man. His anger
knew.no bounds and he created such
a disturbance that Ofliecr Donohue
went up to find out what was the
Mr. Kobenson asked the otlicer to
place the faithless woman and her
escort under arrest. The otlicer not
understanding the case, took all the
parties to the central detail police
station at the foot of Monroe street.
When the station was reached the
woman denounced her husband in
the vilest terms. She called him a
brute and a beast and. said: '-Why
should 1 live with you? You treat
me cruelly and I don't see why I
should love you. I love this man be
cause he has treated me well. -I
don't want anything to do with you.
Leave me alone."
Admitted Her FattlilewHUpttH.
She admitted to the lieutenant in
charge that she hail been false to' her
husband because he had not treated
her right, and had been living with
Talbott at the Midland hotel on Mad
ison street for nearly a month. Mr.
Kobenson was exasperated with his
wife's conduct, and would listen no
longer to her vile epithets. He went
out and secured warrants for the ar
rest of his wife and Mr. Talbott and
returned to the station. After his
wife found out that she was to be
subjected to arrest and consequent
disgrace, she weakened and implored
her husband to forgive her. They
had several conferences in the cap
tain's tdlicc where hot words and
tears accompanied the arguments be
tween the wife and husband.
In the meantime Mr. Talbott pro

After the conference was over Mr.
Kobenson. who still cherished the
utmost wrath toward his wife's
friend, went up to him where he was
seated in the squad room talking to
his attorney, and said: "I am going
to send mv wife home, but I want to

lifinrs if vou ever sneak to this
woman, if you ever cross my path, if
I ever see your face again, I will
make it hot for you," which Talbott
took the harrangue very meekly and
bowed assent to every declaration.
He seemed very glad to get out of
scrape so easily.
After the reconciliation, Mr. Kob
enson, w hen approached by a report
er, became very abusive and said
that it was nobody's business and
that he had nothing to say. Soon
after he and his w ife leff the station.
The warrant for Talbott's arrest was
destroyed and he with his attorney
left the station, lie-declined to say
anything about the matter further
than that his acquaintance with Mrs.
Kobenson was only a chance one, and
that he was not to blame.
At the Midland hotel no informa
tion of the guilty pair could be ob
tained, as they probably registered
under assumed names. The pro
prietor said that, as at other hotels,
no questions were asked of guests, un
less there was conclusive evidence to
show that all was not right.

A number vof inborn hoodlums

the other night by standing in a

bacco in one center spot. The result

in the park, was unable to remove
tlespite his efforts to do so. If the
people in the lower part of the city
expect to have a nice square they
must put a stop to hoodlumism
whenever it crops out, and the best
way to begin is to take these hood
