"DENICKE DID' HIS DUTY"
San Francisco Judge Dismisses Well.
U . Known Militiaman Who
• - ':i Killed Looter
By Associated Press.
■SAN FRANCISCO, June 19.— Ernest
H. Denlcke, a prominent young club
man, son of A. B. Denickc, the million
aire banker, and graduate of the state
university, who on April 20 killed nn
unidentified man on the water front,
was dismissed by Police Judge Shortall
The defendant was moved to tears
when he realized that he was free, and
his aged father thanked the magistrate
In open court. '
In giving his Judgment in the case
Judge Shortall said:
, "Ernest. H.. Denicke, you have done
your duty. To the last day of your life
you will probably regret the necessity
that compelled you to' take a human
life.; My mind was made up when, the
case of the prosecution was finally sub
mitted, and I have found no reason to
change my' opinion. You have com
mitted, no crime under the law, and I
can do nothing b'iit direct a dismissal
of the charge against you."
Denicke shot his victim during the
progress of the San Francisco fire and
the defense was that the killing 'was
justified. -on account of . the fact that
the victim was a looter who had
wrested a weapon from a marine who
was on guard duty. Subsequently the
victim of the shooting died and his
body, weighted with scrap iron, was
thrown into the bay.
