Streeter. wife of -Captain"' -Captain"' Streeter. late "Governor" "Governor" ol the "ueestrlct of Lake Michigan, which she filed as part of a bill for divorce In the Circuit court yesterday. It Is evident that the claimant to the noth Ebore property property 1 not the nautical wizard on the matrimonial matrimonial ea which' he claim to be oa Lake Michigan. T- T- The sudden disappearance or Mamie from " the captain" South Bend apartment! appears to have no mystery about it all, if the log 1 consulted. From that document It would appear that Mamie would better have remained remained the captain's "right hand man" In his efforts to acquire a few acres cf Chicago's Chicago's most valuable residence property than to have become- become- Mrs. Streeter. - Bride Tells of Beating. At the home of her brother, t2 Iglehart court, Mrs. Streeter is to be found, sad faced and brokenhearted. - "I never spent a single, happy day," she said. ''I wa-beaten wa-beaten wa-beaten and kicked and treated like a doff. The captain told me before we were married that he was going to receive 100.000 from some South Bend capitalists for his claim to the north shore property, but the whole story was made up. He never received any such sum of money or any other sum. "... ' " . "I had to stay in the hotel all the time, and the captain never- never- gave me but $2 all . the' time we were married. - He bought me a 3 pair of shoes once, and then when he caw a pair in a window marked $2 he wanted to take them back and change them,, but I kicked and wouldn't stand for Jt." , - Trouble Told la Divorce Bill- Bill- " Thus bar thsfanawsy marriage of CapfaTn' Etreeter and Mamie Collins run upon the shoals. It was a wreck that brought the long whiskered "captain" and his worn, tile bat into prominence as the "Governor" of a trip of land to hold which be defied the laws of the county-and county-and county-and the state, and it Is new a wreck upon the marital aea that brings him once more Into prominence. Like a true eeaman, Mamie Collin kept a log of the happenings on her voyage, and as evidence against thdcaptaln of the craft the document has been washed upon on the shore of the divorce court.
