bullet  Marriage Notes:

The following is an excerpt from a Chicago Tribune article about why people were going to Milwaukee to get married. The article appeared in 1894. "The Whaleback is responsible for these cheap marriages. It costs $2 for a license in Chicago, while no licenses are required here. The $2 will pay for a wedding trip on the Whaleback. The Chicago young man who wants to get married can do so by coming to Milwaukee. The expenses are:

Round trip for two on steamer...$2.00
Splicing by Milwaukee Justice....2.00
Street car fare and incidentals..1.00

This is cheap and besides the young man has not to go to the expense of giving a reception and entertaining his friends at a big celebration.
