TANKE SEES LAST
OF LIFE IN A CITY
Passes Through to Stillwater
to Begin Life Sentence—
His Wife There.
Frank Tanke, three times tried for
t, twice < onvicted. once sen
l to hang and lastly sent up for
life, took his last drink" of liquor in
St. Paul last night.
Tanke. who. since his; arrest in 1901 !
for the murder of John Wellner, a New
Ulm farmer, has seen the inside of
lour court rooms and enjoyed the hos
pitality of a similar number of sher
issed through the city last night
en route to StiUwater, and with his
captors stopped at the Sherman
house bar for one last big drink of
'Here's to you, old man," he said,
addressing the barkeeper, and with the
Newly Elected Secretary of the School
remark, "I guess they won't have any
of this where I am going to," the fiery
liquid passed down his throat.
Tanke was not handcuffed, but Sher
iff McMillian and the two deputies in
charge kept an eagle eye on him until
i\ Stillwater car was reached and
Tanke stepped aboard for the final
journey to his future home. He ap
peared in good spirits and talked glib
ly to the officers and those who cared
to converse with him.
Tanke's passage through St. Paul
closes what is one of the most cele
brated murder trials in the criminal
annals of the state, and places beyond
the pale of society a man whose con
viction cost Nicollet county thousands
of dollars and taxed the patience of
more than one court.
On the night of Dec. 31, 1898, John
Wellner, a prominent farmer living
near New Ulm, was found foully mur
dered. All efforts to locate the mur
derer were unavailing until in 1901,
when Tanke and the widow of the
murdered man, who had since married
Tanke, were arrested at St. Peter and
charged with the crime. He had been
employed as a farm hand by Wellner,
and his known intimacy with the mur
dered man's wife, together with other
suspicious matters that developed in
the meantime, made the county offi
cials feel positive they had the right
While the trial was in progress at
St. Peter one of the jurors became in
sane and the case was taken to Sibley
county, and he was there convicted, the
jury placing his punishment at death.
Here, also, Wellner's wife was tried
for participation in the crime and
pleaded guilty to second degree mur
der. On the strength of her testimony
that she alone did the deed a new trial
was secured and the case was trans
ferred to St. James, where a month ago
a second degree verdict was given.
Through it all Tanke declared that he
was innocent, but the fact of his mar
rying Wellner's wife so soon after the
murder was a stumbling block and a
life sentence resulted.
Since the murder Tanke has occu
pied no less than four jails, each in a
separate county. Every effort was
made by his attorneys to save him
but they were fruitless. Mrs. Tanke is
now doing a^life sentence.
