Fact Creeps Out When Two
Widows Dispute Over
NEW YORK, Dec. 8.—During the
hearing yesterday before Surrogate
Ketcham in Brooklyn in the contest ,
over the will of Brigadier-General Ho- ,
ratio M. Stratton, one of the founders j
and first commander-in-chief of the J
United Boys’ Brigade of America, who i
died May 16 last at 61 Westminster |
road, Flatbush, *it was disclosed that |
General Stratton for years had been |
, maintaining one home at Paulsboro,
N. J., and another in Flatbush.
Two widows of General Stratton ap
peared before the surrogate, one be
ing Mrs. Maria Lillian Stratton, to
whom he was married in Paulsboro,
January 17, 1883, and the other Mrs.
Leita Hartman Stratton, a daughter
of General Henry Hartman, whom he
married in Troy In 1900.
The first wife, who was accompanied
by three survivors of her seven chil
dren, produoed the certificate of her
» marriage, over whloh there was no dis
Mrs. Marie Lillian Stratton says in
her affidavit that ehe was never di
vorced nor separated from her hus
band, and that he had always sup
ported her and the children in a liberal
manner. Her husband, she said, fre
quently went away from their home at
Paulsboro, giving business duties as
the cause of his absence.
The first she knew of her husband's
double life was the day before his
death, when a message came to Pauls
boro that he was critically 111 at 61
Westminister road, Brooklyn. Her two
sons hastened to Brooklyn and there
met Leita Hartman Stratton at hie
bedside, but it was not until half an
hour after his death that the disclosure
that he had been married to her took
The second wife testified that she
had known General Stratton for more I
than a year before their marriage, and
that he had represented himself as a |
widower. The estate, which is valued j
at about $50,000, was left to wife No. 2.
NEW YORK, Dec. 8.—A story that
can incite tears in a Police Court must
needs be filled with pathos. Mrs. Lily
Kletz told such a story yesterday in
Harlem Police Court.
Mrs. Kletz is 2G years old, five feet
two inches tall and pretty. She weighs
eighty-five pounds. Her husband,
Charles Kletz, a bartender, Is 35 years
old, six feet tall and weighs 220 pounds.
"On the night of November 23,’” Mrs.
Kletz told Magistrate Corrigan, ‘‘my
husband came home drunk.
“He caught hold of me and threw me
to the floor, and when I was pyostrate!
he kicked me and dislocated my left
shoulder. Then he threw me the entire
, length of a ten-foot hallway.”

EEIZABETH, Dec. 8.-r-In order that
the "White Way” opening of the Broad
Street Improvement Association, which |
takes place tonight, may bei
made an orderly affair and an occa
. sion of joyousness rather than one of
rowdyism. Chief of Police George H. |
Tenney has issued stringent regula- j
tions. These prohibited the use of con
fetti, feather ticklers or any of the
more annoying articles usually brought
forth on such an occasion.
NEW YORK, Dec. 8.—A whiff of
hydrocyanic acid gas, one of the most
• deadly poisons known to chemistry,
caused the instant death yesterday of
Arthur H. Koelker, a young German
chemist, in the William G. Lyle labora
5 tory connected with Roosevelt Hos
pital. The breaking of a glass retort,
in which Koelker was conducting ex
. perlments with cynaide of potassium
and ferro-cyanide salts released the
fumes which caused his death.
JERSEY CITY, Dec. 8—Rev. J.
M Frazer, a missionary to China, who
for the last eight years has labored in
the Far East, will repeat his lecture on
existing conditions in China next Mon
