    GAY DECEIVER WAS SACKETT
    Claims He Never Wedded His Supposed Wife.
    He Deserted Her.
    And Married Minnie Copp at Richmond, Ind.
    May Get Into Trouble
    Over the Escapade—His Abandoned Companion is in a Pitiable Condition—Police Take a Lively Hand.
    A pathetic story developed at police headquarters today, where Minnie Copp, a former domestic in the employ of a prominent Dayton family, faced her accuser, Mrs. Benjamin F. Sackett, an alleged wronged wife.
    Miss Copp had just returned from Richmond, Ind., where she says she was wedded to B. F. Sackett yesterday. He is a traveling man in the employ of an Illinois rubber company and holds a splendid position.
    Several months ago while he and his wife were boarding at Mrs. Kepler's at Fourth and Ludlow streets, he met Miss Copp, who was a boarder at the same place. The two became intimate friends, and Mrs. Sackett evinced a kindly interest in her as well. When Miss Copp suggested that Mr. Sackett provide a home in the city and allow his wife to remain in Dayton and not travel so much, and when she agreed to furnish half the money required to fitting up the home there was general assent. Soon Mr. and Mrs. Sackett and Miss Copp were living cosily at 215 South Clinton street.
    But it was not long, according to the story of Mrs. Sackett, until Miss Copp had alienated the affections of her husband. They were constantly together, and the wronged wife openly accused them of misconduct. She spent many painful hours alone, and the situation became worse daily. Finally, she thought she could bear the disgrace no longer, and it is stated that she sought to destroy herself, but fortunately either an overdose or an insufficient one of poison was taken, and the injured wife still lives and has since expressed a determination to push the case which has just developed.
    Last Saturday afternoon late the matter came to a startling culmination, when word was sent to police headquarters that some one had entered the Sackett home. Chief Detective McBride made a hurried trip to the place and found the door locked. He heard the sound of voices within, and rang the bell. It seemed a long time before a response came, and he was about to force the door, when Sackett made his appearance. He made a futile attempt to keep the officer out, and later apologized, explaining that he knew he was an officer.
    Mrs. Sackett stated that she returned home unexpectedly that afternoon and found Sackett and the Copp woman together. She was open in her accusations, but the man explained that he was merely shaving, and that his wife was mistaken. With tears in her eyes, and a broken heart, Mrs. Sackett told her sorrowful tale, but she did not wish to prosecute. She was willing to forgive if her husband return to her.
    It seems that on the same evening, or the next day, Sackett and Miss Copp left the Clinton street home and were supposed to have been hiding in this city.
    Yesterday they went to Richmond, Ind., where they were married. Miss Copp, when taken in charge upon her return today, by Operator Gugel on instructions, showed the marriage certificate, indicating that the ceremony was genuine. She says that Sackett told her that he was never wedded to the woman who posed as Mrs. Sackett, but the latter denies this, and brands it a falsehood, claiming that they were married in Chicago, in September, 1897. For several years they have traveled together as man and wife, and she is positive that there could have been no deception.
    The police, believing her story, may wire the Chicago authorities to arrest Sackett on the charge of bigamy.
    Mrs. Sackett was formerly Freda Goodwin and resided in Chicago, where she met Sackett. She is a good-looking woman, and the police and all who have heard her story, deeply sympathize with her and agree that she has been the victim of the deep-laid schemes of a scoundrel. However, she claims that Sackett was at all times a kind and dutiful husband.
    Today at headquarters the Copp woman and Mrs. Sackett faced each other and the latter gave vent to piercing screams.
    It develops that when the trio agreed to go to housekeeping together, Mrs. Sackett gave her supposed husband three rings, valued at several hundred dollars, with which he was supposed to buy furniture. He pawned these rings for $85, and is said to have spent the money on his trip to Richmond.
    Chief Detective McBride and Acting Chief Allaback are investigating the matter and developments are expected.
    Miss Copp was generally considered above reproach and was a nurse for a man who willed her a considerable sum of money. Litigation followed, and the case is in the courts at the present time.
    Mrs. Sackett claims that before her husband deserted her Saturday, a proposition was made that she should live with him as a sister and would be paid $2.50 per week for keeping house.
    The Richmond (Ind.) police were requested to search for Sackett and arrest him. It is claimed that even if he deceived the woman with a trumped-up marriage, Mrs. Sackett is his common-law wife. Attorney Eagen will defend the original Mrs. Sackett.
    Mrs. Sackett, downcast and forlorn, became weary of life while at police headquarters late today and threatened to take her life. Sergeant McBride instructed Record Clerk Gibbs to watch her. She picked up a piece of iron, and it is thought she intended to do herself bodily harm, but was prevented by the clerk. However, the police promised her assistance, and it is thought she will overcome her despondency.

    BIGAMIST WITH NERVE.
    After Deserting His Wife Offers Her a Job as Cook.
    By Scripps-McRae Press Association.
    DAYTON, Dec. 19—Benjamin Sackett, a traveling man, is wanted on a bigamy charge. He left here yesterday with Miss Copp, a trained nurse. They were married at Richmond, Ind., came back and told Mrs. Sackett No. 1 that her marriage was not legal, but would give her a job in the house as cook at $2.50 per week. Sackett has left, and wife No. 1 informed the police.

    SAID HE DIDN'T MARRY HIS WIFE
    Sackett Lived with Her Thirty Years and Then Left and Married Another
    Dayton, Dec. 19.—Benjammin F. Sackett, a travelling representative of the Illinois Rubber Company, has left this city and is being looked after by the authorities, who will prefer a bigamy charge against him.
    Sackett lived for thirty years with Freda Goodwin, whom he met in Chicago. They came to Dayton recently and took up apartments with a Miss Minnie Copp, a trained nurse. All went well until Mrs. Sackett learned that her husband was paying too much attention to Miss Copp. She remonstrated and then Sackett left her and went to Richmond, Ind., with Miss Copp, where they were married. Miss Copp returned to Dayton with the marriage license and claimed that Sackett was never married to Mrs. Sackett, they having lived together as man and wife, and the ceremony joining them, performed in Chicago, being a mere bluff. Mrs. Sackett says she was married to Sackett, but that he has the certificate of marriage.

    SACKET [sic] ARRESTED
    He Came Here, It Apears, to Smooth His Troubles Over.
    Wife No. 1 Says They Have Just Begun—He Will Be Charged With Bigamy.
    Benjamin Franklin Sackett, the traveling salesman for a Chicago rubber house, the reputed husband of two women, was arrested in this city shortly before noon today. His nerve in thus returning to the city from which he eloped as a married man with a woman not his wife, staggers the old-timers on the police force. He was arrested at the room of the girl, Minnie Kopp, whom he left town with and married in Richmond, Ind. She now supposes herself to be his legal spouse, thinking the woman he lived with four years, had never been his wife, he having made that statement himself.
    The police, however, think Sackett is only bluffing, and that he really did marry Mrs. Sackett No. 1. She insists that the ceremony took place in Chicago. He admits that it did, but says it was a fake marriage. The police do not think so.
    Sackett's first wife, after the trouble here, went to Spencerville, O., where she has taken up her residence with an uncle. Sackett apparently learned of this, and Monday he sent a telegram to the uncle, asking if the trouble could be smoothed over. The telegram was dated Dayton, and the police thereby learned of his presence in this city. It was not long before the Kopp girl's room was located on West Fifth street, and Sergeant Fair was sent out and nabbed Sackett.
    In the meantime, his first wife had been requested to come to this city, which she did. She confronted him at police headquarters, but did not break down. The first thing he said to her was: "Now, why have you caused me all this trouble?" She answered that his trouble was yet to come. Sackett sneered continually, while the woman who was his wife in all that the name implies, now apparently hates him as much as she formerly loved him.
    The prisoner was sent to the Central Police Station, and Mrs. Sackett went to Richmond, to swear out a warrant in Indiana, charging bigamy. He will be extradited.

    B.F.Sackett Attempts Release by Habeas Corpus
    Benjamin F. Sackett made an effort this morning to effect his release from custody by means of habeas corpus proceedings. Attorney John E. Dixon appeared in his behalf. The police officials who are detaining Sackett on the charge of bigamy, informed the court that requisition papers were expected for the prisoner from Indiana, and on this representation, Judge McCann continued the case until tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock.
    Sackett, however, in the event of his release, which is not probable, will be at once re-arrested on another charge. The police are determined to force him to make some atonement for his misdeed.

    SACKETT FREE.
    Exonerated By the Indiana Courts This Morning.
    Arrested in Dayton For Bigamy, and Legally Released in Richmond.
    Benjamin Franklin Sackett, who was arrested in this city on the charge of bigamy, and was taken to Richmond, Ind., on a requisition on Governor Nash, was discharged from custody by the courts of that city this morning. From the time of his arrest, and even before, Sackett protested that he was not guilty of the charge. Since he was legally set free, there seems to be no chance to prosecute him for his duplicity.
    It will be remembered that he married a Dayton girl in Richmond some six weeks ago. At that time, another woman thought she was his wife, and had lived with him four years on that supposition. She claimed that they had been married in Chicago, but Sackett protested that he had never legally wedded her. On his return to this city to join his real wife, he was arrested, and a fund was raised by police officials and others interested, to pay the costs of prosecution, his supposed wife being penniless. She apparently had no recourse in law, and his duplicity will go unpunished.
    The woman who thought herself his wife, will probably go to live with an uncle in a little town not far distant from Dayton, where she was when Sackett was arrested. The story of their troubles has been published, and is pretty generally known.

    To Be Released at Richmond From Lack of Evidence.
    Special Dispatch to the Enquirer.
    Dayton, Ohio, January 15.—A telegram was received this afternoon by the authorities from Richmond, Ind., stating that Benjamin F. Sackett, a traveling man, arrested on a bigamy charge, would be released, as there was no evidence against him.
    The Dayton police who effected Sackett's arrest did so upon the claim of the County Prosecutor of Richmond, who insisted that he had a sure case of bigamy against him under the Indiana law. The Prosecutor came here personally and resisted habeas corpus proceedings when Sackett was endeavouring to secure his freedom here. Sackett married Miss Minnie Copp in Richmond after living here with a woman who claims she married him in Chicago.

    Clark formerly resided here, but went to Dayton, O. While there he became sick and was nursed by Miss Minnie Copps, who later married Benjamin F. Sackett, a Chicago traveling man. After his marriage to Miss Copps, a woman who claimed she was the wife of Sackett had him arrested at Richmond, Ind., for bigamy. He was soon dismissed by the authorities there. He was arrested in Dayton and then taken to Richmond.

    "A QUIET LIFE
    Enjoyed by W. C. Sackett Who Died Last Friday.
    Was One of Summit County's Most Prominent Men at One Time.
    William C. Sackett, who died at his home in Coventry township last Friday, was one of the most prominent residents of Summit county.
    Mr. Sackett was born in Warren, Ct., October 29, 1827. When ten years old he moved to Tallmadge, where he lived until 1851. That year he went to the western gold fields and remained in California and Oregon four years. He then decided to come east again and located in Copley, where he lived until 1893. In the spring of 1898, Mr. Sackett moved his family to Coventry, where he lived until his death. Mr. Sackett was much interested in everything that pertained to farm life. He was president of the Summit County Agricultural society from 1887 to 1892.
    He was not an enlisted soldier during the Civil War, but drilled large numbers of men that were sent to the front. He was active in politics, but never cared for an office and never held one.
    His life was always a quiet and simple one, as he was not a man who cared for display. The last few years of his life were spent in retirement on his farm. He had been in poor health for nearly four years before his death. He leaves a widow and one son, Dr. William A. Sackett of this city."

    Frederick Gleason Sackett
    Obituary
    Frederick Gleason Sackett was born in Windsor, Ashtabula County, O., on Aug. 4, 1847. Died Feb. 12, 1923 at his home, 332 North Raymond, Ave., Pasadena, California. He was the second son and fifth child of Chancey and Sarah Sackett.
    It is needless to say to those who knew the parents of Mr. Sackett, that they were among the most earnest and staunch christians of their time and place. All of their seven children had the great advantage of the influence of a home where vital christianity was the most prominent characteristic.
    In the fall of 1867 F. G. Sackett went to California by the Panama route. Landing in San Francisco he employed his time in various occupations, more prominent was his connection with a lumber firm of San Francisco, spending some years in the upper region of Humboldt Bay, cutting and shipping Red Wood lumber down the coast, to that city. After that he was employed for about two years by one of the daily papers [The San Francisco Chronicle] as traveling agent and correspondent. In that capacity he visited nearly every part of that great state. Being a great lover of nature and possessed of fine descriptive powers his letters were of wonderful interest. Not many years ago Mr. Sackett told the writer this was some of the most enjoyable work of his life.
    In the fall or winter of 1875 Mr. Sackett left that work for the purpose of returning east to visit his widowed mother, sisters, brothers and other relatives, and many friends and also to attend the much talked of Centennial Exposition to be held in 1876 in Philadelphia.
    In the summer of 1876 while on a visit to his brother, O. M. Sackett, who is a minister of the Gospel, and whose work was in Clarion Co., Pa., he was induced to go into the Office of the Oil Producing Company of M. E. Hess & Co., engaging for one month, fully intending to go back to his work in California in a short time. But this little trifling engagement for a month was a matter that changed the course of his whole life, for he not only remained in that office, but in due time he married the oldest daughter of Mr. Hess, who has in all these years proved to be a rich treasure indeed, so kind and faithful a helpmate indeed proving herself worthy the name, a noble self sacrificing wife and mother. Mr. Sackett soon after became a partner in the firm and was in the oil producing business for 35 years or more. His last oil operations being in the field of Illinois. About 12 years ago he closed out all his interest in the oil business and with his family moved to California, locating the city of Pasadena.
    The strictest integrity in business as in every thing else was the ruling characteristic of Mr. Sackett's life. It would be better for the world if men of his stamp could be multiplied more and more. I know that the big hearted generosity and trusting nature often made him the loser in his dealings with some men.
    In the year 1891 Mr. Sackett was converted and from that on he was an earnest christian. That event gave him a new view of life, as it will any other man. He loved his church and its various activities and gave it of his time and talent and means unsparingly. He lived and died in the assurance of meeting his Blessed Savior and the many loved ones and dwelling with them forever in the mansions above. He leaves to mourn their loss, his faithful wife, one daughter, two sons, who were all with him in his long sickness of more than a year and a half, caring for him as only a loving faithful wife and children can, and an only sister, Mrs. Emma L. Knapp, of Windsor, widow of the lamented Henry J. Knapp, she being the only remaining member of the family."
