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 errand. 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 Important Point. 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. Keller. They registered at the Plank- inton aa "I H. Toung. wife and servant. Boston." aarwrlateadent Laadt Exonerated. Friendship. Wis.. Nov. 19.
