Union St. near Hotel I sou
life offer many Instance nf that. Up
ns n mnn of the moat admirable char
acter, ami his honesty and Integrity
were never doubted by any one that
ever had nn thlnK to do with him. II"
was gentle, quiet nnd tender hearted.
I nocr heard of his playing cards In
his life, and neer heard of his taklnr;
n drink. An) thing nf that kind wns
entirely foreign to his disposition. I
have questioned the soldiers rlgldlv
and I cannot And among them n man
to say he ever mw lilm touch a drop
nf liquor or a card. He nlways took
soda water! root beer, or something of
thnt kind when social association de
manded It. He has frequently beet
seen drinking Shasta wntcr or root
beer, but never whiskey or chnmpagnu.
He was temperate In all wnys, nnd I
have carefullly questioned the sentinels
as to his recent movements. They rr
port that he wns nearly nlways In his
room early, and this I know myself, in
I have often observed Ills' light. On the
night Miss Schneider is supposed to
hnvo swallowed the poison Dennett
was In his room at 10:30 o'clock and his
lamp wns lit. At nbout 1 o'clock his
lamp wns burning still, and ngaln at
4:30 there was a light In his room. He
wns often troubled with Insomnia, nnd
got up to read, so noltitnk wns thougnt
ot the light. Ho arose nnd went out 10
the hydrant for water nt nbout 7
o'clock the next morning. As to the
two men seen nt the Neumann place,
I can say they were two soldiers from
the camp, who were looking for cornl,
nnd they can be produced, If necessary.
They were not Intimate with Bennett..
I examined Dennett's room after his
death and found somo ordinary medi
cines, such as quinine pills. There win
no morphine or opium. I have heard
Dennett speak of the neuralgia In bis
head, and he complained particularly
In damp weather. He also had a dell
cnte'dlgestlon. which would have com
pelled him to refrain from Intemper
ance, even It ho had been Inclined to
"In the room I also found some pa
pers which he had evidently prepared
to bo found. Among them was a deed
to some St. Louis property for which
tho deed states he paid 136,000. I also
heard him speak once of a large win
ning at the races, and this Is all I know
nbout any property or money ho poj
sesscd outside of his salary, which wni
$80 a month. I once asked him what
he Intended to do when ho got too old
for service, nnd he said he Intended to
live off tho St. Louis property, whl.-.h
would keep him comfortable.
When I read tho note he addressed
to me, stating tbnt 'a woman was ul
tho bottom of It all,' I formed nn opin
ion ns to til creason of his suicide. Thnt
opinion I have not changed. I bellqvo
thnt when he heard of Clara Schnei
der's death, ho believed himself respon
sible for it. through not being ablo
to return her money nt the time slif
nsked for It, or somo other renso"n un
known to any one living but himself.
nnd I think that, believing himself re
sponsible for her death, he killed him
self as many n mnn of his high Ideas
of honor would, do. He wns absolutely
fearless, nnd the act was not one ot
which he would be afraid. He was con
Bclentlous nnd tender hearted, and that
would bo the most plausible reason for
his suicide. Whllo dauntless as to
courage, nnd without nerves when his
country demanded that he take life,
I know that Frank Dennett wns not
bloodthirsty, and that he would never
tnko life when It wns not necessary.
As nn Instance of this I will relate a
story which he told me nbout himself
In Arizona. One morning he win
nwnkened In his little tent by his dog.
Tho dog rubbed his nose ngalnst Den
nett's face, nnd with the. Instinct
which made him fumous aa'an Indian
scout, Dennett immediately surmised
that danger was near. Ho took his
pistols nnd slipped from tho tent, 'o
wait In the bushes with tho dm;.
Shortly afterward thrco Indians steal
thily crept towards tho tent and peered
under tho flap, evidently in search jf
him. He covered them with his pistols
nnd told them, In the Apache language
which he spoke, to throw up their
hands or be Instnntly killed. Two of
them obeyed, but the third wheeled and
fired, shooting the dog through tho
shoulder. That Indian did not get
nwny. The other two ho captured and
took 'to camp as prisoners. He might
ns well havo killed all three of them,.
nnd he really risked his own life to
give them all a chnnco to live. That
shows that ho wbb not bloodthirsty,
"I feel assured that he had nothing
to do with tho poisoning of Miss Schel
der. Sho probably nsked him to ',:
vest her money for her, nnd called for
Its return nt a time when he was un
able to get hold of it for her, and she
took her own llfo because It was not
returned, To such a man hb Frank Den
nett thero wns but one thing to dn
nnd he did It.
"I know nothing about any other
money transactions, except that some
of the men at tho camp claim to have
heard him say ho loaned 1500 to Ott
mann. If I heard Dennett say ho loan
ed that or any amount, I rerlalnlv
would believe that he did. Ills trting
eat point was that he always told tlin
truth. He ncer poaed for effect In any
"Yes; Oilman's place has a bad rrpu
latlon In ramp.
"No; I don't think It poaalldc th.it
Dennett eer entertained women In his
room. He knew that such a thing, If
dlacovered. would mean Instant ills
inlsanl, and he thought too much of hla
reputation ever to tnkc such a risk. He
never disobeyed a rule nnd was strict
as to discipline.
"There Is one more thing, gentlemen,
thnt 1 would llko to voluntarily say,
with the permission of Mr. Chilling
worth. Mr, Dennett, ns long as I knew
him nnd during nil my aaaoclation
with him. never In my hearing, spoke
nn unkind word of nny human being,"
Itnlph II, Jones, steward ot the dis
pensary at the camp. Corporal O, II.
Scott, Sergeant M, O. Cramer, Corporal
Druce Hartman and Privates Sbupp
and Snyder, all testified' to the strict
temperance and popularity of the dead
scout. Ho had never applied at the din
pensary for anything. Corporal Scotl
had seen him many times with Mrs.
Ottmnrk They often sat on the seawall
in front of Ottman's placo of buslnesi.
Sergeant Cramer stated that the dead
scout had told him he had loaned 1500
to Ottman with which to make Im
provements on his place.
Corporal Druce Hartman said ho had
been very well acquainted with tho
dead scout. lie was talking with Mr J.
Ottman nnd there were two Shasta
water bottles on tho table. He knew
Mrs. Ottman was very friendly with
Dennett. He did not believe Dennett
wns in love with Mrs. Ottman but be
lieved that Mrs "Ottman wns in love
with Dennett. He had often heard
Dennett telephoning nnd knew that
Miss Schneider called him up nearly
every day. He yciften took messages
from her to Dennett.
W. J. C. Ottman sworo on tho witness
stand that ho had never borrowed any
money from Dennett. Ho once asked
him to go ball for him In the sum of
$1000, when nrrcstcd, but Dennett had
replied that ho was not tho possessor
of so much money. Dennett did not
put up a cent of money for the expenses
of his wlfo nt the hospital.
Ottman went on to say that Dennett
had drunk liquor with hlra In sovcr.il
saloons of the city and named the sa
loons and the bartenders who had wait
ed on them. There had been n coolneBS
between the two since the day before
the election when he had remonstrated
Ith the deceased for attempting sui
cide in his resort nt Walklkl.
