HOW CONFESSION CAME.
Tha Davenport Leader tells of the
confession of Mrs. Behrens, impli
cating usury oenat, oi uus city, as
The confession, whatever itjnav
have been, on th part of Mrs.
Behrens, was not a voluntary one,
but was wrung from her by Chief
Martens, after a long and aevere pro
cess of sweating. She had eaten but
little Friday and slept m uch less
rnday night. Saturday morning
the - chief continued his sweating
process, and after about an hour's
work the confession came. After
the chief had heard her story, he
called County Attorney Lischer and
Acting liounty Attorney xnoenen,
and to them she repeated her story,
which ' was taken in writing and to
which she affixed her signature. It
was a surprise to all that she con
fessed, but now that she has, the
mystery of the death of Claus B-h-rens
will soon be solved. Bendt,
when arrested and charged with the
crime, seemed at first much sur
prised and protested his innocence,
but when he was told that Mrs
Behrens had made a confession im
plicating him. he seemed to take a
philosophical view of the matter and
said he guessed he would have to
take his share of the trouble as well
. "Chief Martens had known the
woman for several years, and It was
by this reason of former acquaint
ance that he was enabled to get her
to taic. iu story ox the alleged
oonfession is as follows: He had
labored with her for some time with
out avail, and finally told her what I
aTJUUe tleU BsBltaV e)UU UUllV II j JfJ
quest and at other times, and started
to leave. She called to htm: Henry,
come back and I will tell you all.
Bendt is as guilty as I am.' She
then said that when they met on the
bridge Saturday afternoon at 3
o'cloek, Bendt had given her some
medicine' and told her to give it to
her husband, and that when he was
dead they weald get married. It is
hardly probable that it is the oorrect
story of the crime, even if it be a
a correct version of the partial con
fession, and when Bendt is put
through the sweating prooess there
may be a different story revealed."
The Democrat says: "Mrs. Beh
rens has a record that is not alto
gether clear. She has been married
twice. Her first husband was Hans
Hsge. He took her in good faith,
but found after she was his wife that
she had been decided inditoreet be
fore their marriage, and left her and
got a aivorce. After this she mar
