Denies that Reasons Al

Says She Has a Surprise
I DEATH HOUSE QUARREL

It Is Said that It Was in that
Gruesome Place She Detci
f mined to Seek Separation
from the Man Who Was On
t the Brink of the Grave
L SIOUX FALLS S Dak Nov 19
Mrs Blanch Chraebrough Mollneux said
today The reasons which are al
leged to have led ma to seek a divorce
as told In a New York newspaper and
telegraphed to me are absurd In fact
i
i they are Infamous I deny them In toto
I hive a more farreaching and sur
prising cause for Keeking my divorce
I
from Roland Burnham Mollneux but I
I do not now care to state what It Is It
will astonish the community when It be
comes known but perhaps It may not bo
I necessary to offer It as a plea when the
hearing of my suit comes up
f That article Is woven together from
a mass of Incidents Inucndoes and allegations
r
gations made since the tragedy In which
my husband figured first started Sev
eral times within < he last awful four
years ot my life these statements that
are now so carefully gathered have ap
peared In the newspapers and from
time to time Gen Molncux or some one
of his counsel has contradicted them
In the grueiome shadows of the death
house at Sing Sing Blanche Mollneux
I l Ii and the husband who was then await
rr Ing the touch ot the executloners but
ton that should cut his thread of Ufa
r had their quariel All ties ot affection
that were supposed to have existed be
fore that dramatis meeting wer for
I II gotten and It was there that thl wife
who now seeks divorce nrst made her
declaration of hatred for the man she
cays she can no longer endure
A remarkable story of the circum
stances Is printed In the Herald today
Delloved Him a Martyr
Up to the time of that scene Mrs
I Mollneux haa believed In her husband
as a persecuted martyr and hid heroi
cally borno tho terrible burdens of ttiu
dtlgmas placed upon her A straight
I forwaid question a few sharp and bitter
il words of stinging reply and the mention
II of another womans name and the pris
1 oners wife left the foreshadowing
I death house with tha steel rankling In
her heart and whatever spark of love
the might have had for him was coll
and dead
Throughout the nrst few years of the
tragedy that had almost torn her from
1 her husband the world admired Mrs
Mollneuxs devotion largely because she
had been accused of Indiscretions that
made her appear to be the sinner that
led him to do wrongly It was also
t salJ that she had agreed to wed Moll
1 neux after Barnet the man she had
I loved was laid In his coffin though he
hitd proposed to her many times before
j
I while Barnet lived
I Then came the death of Mrs Adams
and slowly the net of evidence gathered
j by the police began to settle upon
MoHneuxo shoulders
The First Shook
1
Her first hbck of iiurprlae was at the
deep Interest her husband took In the
i tragic story of Mrs Adamss death hut
when the terrible accusations began to
press him to the wall as she witnessed
the wonderful nerve of th man so
Mgnlflcant of Innocence she had perfect
confidence In him and prayed that be
might be restored to her quickly
She lived with his parents In Brooklyn
and suffered Intensely with them during
the long wait for the first trial
She abandoned her friends and put the
happy world she had llvd In behind
her bearing up with wonderful courage
the nerveraeklrtg ordeal of having to
I meet dally the sordid creatures who fat
tened upon her misery
Then as piece by piece the District
Attorney began to patch together the
evidence with which1 to prosecute her
hueband she learned many tilings about
his former life she had never heard
I j before She could not fathom the re
peated assertions of the prosecutor that
Iniportant wltnmnrs were being ptld to
fl rcnaln without he jurisdiction espec
l ially In regard to Mamie Melando with
whom the name of Roland B Mol
lneux had been unpleasantly associated
Then came the evidence of the robins
itblue note paper and the admission
J other husband ot having written a let
ter on this paper to Or James Llurni
asking for a certain medicine presum
ably for the same purpose for which the
fictitious Cprnlsh and spurious Barnet
fetters were written
Stick to Me lie Said
Her husband had said to her at the
