AND SHE HAS HTM ARRESTED
Harry Drenter Said There Would Be
Two Less People if She Refused
to Marry Him.
One of the most' sensational cases
of the year came to trial on prelim
inary hearing1 this afternoon in the
Davenport police court, when Harry
Drenter, a young farmer living twr
miles east of the Summit church, was
arraigned on the charge of threaten
ing- the life of Freda Giles, a Milan
girl, who has been employed as a do
mestic at wie home of M. Drenter, a
brother of the accused, at whose
home Harry Drenter, an unmarried
man, aged 2S years, is living while at
tending to his own farm across the
The girl's story is that she went to
work at Mr. Drenter's, and that soon
after she arrived there Harrj- Dren
ter tried to show -her attentions.
which she discouraged. She refused
to go anywhere with him. and he
complained to her that she would g.
where Mrs. Drenter suggested, but
never where he asked her to go.
Miss Giles, who is is years of age
and of attractive appearance, says
that a month ago Harry asked her
how she would like to live in the va
cant house across the road on his
farm. She replied she would not like
it, and then he declared he wanted to
marry her. She walked away from
him and said nothing.
Kevolver and .Strychnine.
A little over a week ago. she de
clares, he came to her and said he
had a revolver for her and a dose of
strychnine for himself, and there
would be two less people in the world
if she would not marry hini. In fear
she said she would have to see her
father first, and he answered that
made no erence. Seeking to get
him away she said she must then see
her uncle, who lives in this country.
Harry said it was not her uncle's bus
Miss Giles reported this conversa
tion to Mrs. Drenter, who, according
to the girl's story, told it to M. Dren
ter, with the result he gave Harry a
scolding. Miss Giles continues by
saving mat while she was goin
through the pantry last Wednesday
she found a note commanding her to
meet Harry at the vacant house, on
pain of the revolver and the dose of
poison. She showed this note to the
sister-in-law of Harry, and again the
latter was reprimanded by his broth
Walks Floor at Night
M. Drenter left for a few days, and
while he was away, says Miss Giles,
Harry Drenter walked the floor at
night and the two women, occupying
a room together, could not sleep for
fear of what he might try to do. A
week ago yesterday, according to the
girl, he again persisted in the demand
that she should marry him, and said
he was going to Davenport to get the
license. She was afraid, she says, to
object to his going and thought it
woi.M be a way to get him away from
the place so she might make her es
cape. He drove to Davenport and ;tit
the license a week ago yesterday.
Girl Leaves llonse.
Acting on advice of Mrs. Drenter,
the girl went to Eldridge with her, to
catch the train, which she missed.
Then she went to the house of a Mr.
Stoltenberg to stay until the next
train. Mr. Stoltenberg advised wait
ing until the next day, for fear Dren
ter might be lying in wait at Eld
ridge. Next morning' Drenter drove
up in a red buggy pulled by a white
horse from which the 'sweat was
dripping. ne asked if Freda was
there. Mr. Stoltenberg stretched the
truth anil said she had been there,
but had taken a train for Milan. As
a matter of fact the girl was in an
upstairs room beside herself W'.'tli
Next evening she got a train to
Davenport and went to the house on
the bluff where she formerly worked.
Here she told her story to friends.
