SHIELDS IS TAKEN IN.
The Watchman Charged With
Raping Mary Zens Found
At His House
By the Police Who Took Him
at Once to the City
He Denies the Truth of the
Charge Entered Against
John Boyle Acknowledges
that He Is Something of
a Liar Himself.
Henry Shields, the night watchman
charged with the rape of the insane
woman, Mary Zens, or Zeinke, in the
county jail, on the night of Oct. 18, has
been arrested. He was found about noon
by Detective Daly at his home on the
farm near Forest Lake. The detective
says that when he went to Shields'
place, Shields came to the door and rec
ognized the officer. He seemed quite
well aware of the officer's mission, and
he gave it out quite coolly that he had
read the statements published in the
papers. He appeared calm and uncon
cerned, and he offered no resistance.
Detective Daly says he apparently, al
though cognizant of the grave charges,
had made no effort to get away. The
neighbors all around there, the officer
says, give Shields a good name.
He was locked up in the police station
in a cell a little before 4 o'clock yester
day. Chief Clark knew he was coming,
having already received word, and he
and Detective O'Connor were on hand
to see him brought in. Shields was in
terviewed outside his cell and there were
several persons, mostly police officials,
present. If his demeanor betrayed any
feeling it was that of annoyance. He
walked out of his cell as if bothered
rather than worried, but he permitted
his large dark eyes to glance cautiously
at everybody present, and stood up with
something of a languid attitude, ready
to be subjected to the inquisition, what
ever it might have been. He is tall and
would be regarded as an average good
looking young man. his physique indi
cating strength, and his features assum
ing an honest cast. His eyes sparkled,
and although very expressive, there
seemed to be in them an effort to conceal
something. He was
in his general bearing, and would fre
quently hesitate and look around before
making an answer. The following con
versation then took place:
"Mr. Shields, I suppose you know what you
have been charged with":"
"They are pretty grave charges."
"Where were yon when arrested?"
"At home, at Forest Lake."
"Did you do what you arc charged with?"
"I did not."
"Where was Kramer?"
"I don't know."
"Where was Frank Picha?"
"He was in the jail."
"Where was Peterson?"
"I don't know." V *■*■
"Did Peterson catch you?"
"He did not."
"You know what are the charges Peterson
makes against you?"
"Are they true?"
"Peterson had been out, had he?"
"I think he had."
"But he was in the building?"
"I think he was."
'■What time was it?"
"A little after 10 o'clock."
"Where were the women?''..
"Mr. shields, these women were supposed
to have been locked up up stairs in the
guards' corridor, and, as night watchman of
the jail, you had the keys, and you were the
only man who could unlock the door and let
the woman down stairs. Why did you un
lock the door?"
•Hesitating). "I had to walk around the
corridors every hour, anyway."
"Why did you let the woman down stairs?"
"I let her out because she was making a
"She made a good deal of noise."
''Kramer was down stairs, wasn t he**"'
"And somebody came to the door?" —
"It was Peterson?"
"Where was Kramer?"
"He was down stairs."
"Did you ever know this woman before?"
"She was known around town pretty well in
a kind of way, you know."
••Did you ever know her before?"
"No, I never saw the woman before."
"Do you think the Burner woman set this
Insane woman up to it; told her to expose
herself and yield to you, all that sort of
thing, you know?"
"No, I don't think she did."
"Did the Burner woman ever talk to you or
you to her?"
"Not much. I know who the woman is. I
have known her ever since she came into the
jail. I didn't have much to say to her."
,'Do you think the Burner woman is at the
bottom of the whole business?"
"1 don't know as she. is."
"You know a good deal more than you care
to tell, don't your"

"Have you any statement to make in con
nection with these charges?"
"No. I will make my statement when ray

"Have you employed an attorney?"
"No; 1 haven't yet."
There is, as can be seen, a good deal
of mystery in the answers Shields
makes. This was also apparent in the
readiness he manifested to get back into
his cell and escape further questioning.
He will have a preliminary examination
at the municipal court to-morrow morn
ing. The grand jury will meet in about
four weeks, and then the whole mystery
may be solved.
HOTLE IS TALKATIVE.
John Boyle, the prisoner accused of
attempting to break jail, is a good deal
more communicative. But it is hard,
under the circumstances, to decide
whether to believe him or not. Boyle's
case came up for the last time in the
municipal court yesterday morning.
No Kramer was present to testify
against him, so Judge Cory said: "Mr.
Boyle, you are discharged." He was
released accordingly, and was taken to
police headquarters, where a private
talk was had with him by Chief Clark.
Mr. Boyle now says that he lied when
he retracted his legally false accusation
against Kramer, to the effect that Kra
mer had furnished him with the'saws.
His attorney, Mr. Butcher, says head
vised Boyle to make the retraction be
cause Sheriff Richter had intimated to
the prisoner that he could send him to
prison for three or four years if Boyle
did not retract the counter charge. Mr.
Butcher says he did not advise Boyle to
do so, however, at the request of the
sheriff. Boyle has voluntarily, without
being solicited in any way, made the
following statement, and it can be taken
for what it is worth, and in face of
either that Boyle has had to get his lib
erty, or he had to implicate Turnkey
"I was arrested here on the charge of at
tempt to break jail. They couldn't produce
any evidence to hold, me, and this morning
1 was discharged. The sheriff told me that
if I made the statement that appeared in lust
evening's paper that 1 would be released. 1
did not do so because he told me, but through
the advice of attorneys, with the under
standing that I would be released. This
statement was made to exonerate Turnkey
Kramer from nil blame and to square the
sheriff. I hadno money to employ counsel,
md rather . than lay in jail I made "this state
ment, on the sheriff's promise that he would
release me. Kramer handed the knives in
through the cubby hole to the corridor. If
the public do not wish to take my statement
as true, let them ask Dan O'Brien, Frank
Johnston, Edward . Flanuagan, William J.
Shannon, Clinch and Charles Brasier, and
they will state the full particulars in accord
ance with what I have said. In regard to the
first attempt to break jail by springing the
door, of which Uie prisoners were accused
and put on bread and water for three
days, when this door was sprung,
or rather when'the attempt was
made, the turnkey was asleep in the chair.
His name is Prank Picha. Ask Frank John
ston to substantiate this statement. Johnston
was intrusted with the keys to the jail, and if
he had not been an honest man he could
have set all the prisoners free, seveuty-tw*
in all. Johnston was in on a charge of high
way robbery. The sheriff had not discovered
the cutting of the bars and would not have
discovered it had it not been for a prisoner
named be I'loy, who gave the snap away.
The prisoners had been sawing at them -
FOII six WEEKS.
Le f'roy was the chief man in sawing these
bars and the one to give .the game away to
Sheriff Richter. Sheriff Hit-liter made no
Search or investigation until LeCroy had told
him of it. When Kramer said he caught me
sawing these bars, he reported it to the
sheriff. The sheriff came in and said it was
a pretty good scheme. He came to me and
asked me where. the saw was. 1 told him I
knew nothing about it. He gave me ten min
utes to produce the saw. 1 did not until he
brought fourteen prisoners to the bars, told
them he wanted the saw or file pro
duced or he would punish them
severely. Dan O'Brien handed out the saw
and 'fun-key Peterson identified it as
jail property. " I was punished for this of
fense, handcuffed on bread and water for one
<*ay. He told me the next time would be for
twenty-four hours. About this bill of fare:
It was oue thing right along for six days In
the week, with no change whatever. In re
gard to these insane women, I saw them run
ning around there with uo clothes on. The
turnkeys had her down stairs and she re
sisted being taken outside and begged for
mercy. They then kept her inside. Another
female prisoner in there was named Dickin
son. **"hey were afraid she would squeal on
them and wanted the court to pronounce her
insane. I called the turnkeys attention to
their criminal actions and tney told me to
shut up. for fear the public might get hold of
it. Any one who doesn't believe this can
ask O'Brien or any of the prisoners. They
accused the Y. M. C. A. of nutting saws and
things throuch the bars, and wouldn't allow
them iv the jail: also the W. C. T. U. No
visitors or friends are allowed in there, and
every one going in there is accused. No one
hut the turnkeys put any thing in there and
I can swear to every thing I say.
THE DIXON •WOMAN.
There is another thing that makes
talk, namely, the release of the other
partly insane woman, Josephine Dixon.
This woman made some very serious
statements in connection with one of
the jail officials, although it has turned
out that she was mistaken in the identity
of the man. County Attorney Egan ap
peared as soon as Judge Kelly's court
opened yesterday morning, 'and In
formed the court that the doctors who
had examined her at the probate court
decided that she was not altogether of a
sound mind, and that if she was allowed
to remain in jail she would very prob
ably soon become insane. It was not a
proper place to keep female prisoners
anyway. Accordingly at Mr. Egan's
suggestion the court reduced the wo
man's bail to §300 and - she was allowed
to go on her own recognizance.
Shields Says He Can Tell a Story
"When the Time Conies.
Another visit was paid to the cell of
Henry Shields last night between lOand
11 o'clock. He was found sitting up on
one of the long benches, and looking
thoughtfully out of the cubby hole. A
strange brightness about his eyes
seemed to have changed their color to a
light blue, aud they were full of smoth
ered anxiety and worry, "lwill have a
good deal more to say at the trial." he
answered after several questions had
been put to him, "1 will then tell the
truth and all the truth. Yes, I believe
the whole thing is a trumped up affair.
Of course I believe the charges are all
trumped up against me. Who is re
sponsible for it? Maybe I can tell when
my trial comes off. I will have a good
deal to say then, you bet. 1 should say
they are lies. My reputation has al
ways been good from my youth up. I
won't leave out anything in my state
ment when 1 have my trial. I have al
ways had a good name for honesty, and
for respectable behavior to women. I
don't know what I will say until 1 see
my lawyer. My father has. been
looking for a lawyer. 1 don't be
lieve 1 will ever go to jail. 1 should
say I could get bonds enough. I have
lots of friends in St. Paul. I saw the
paper last night (Friday). I didn't try
to get away. The detective came about
12 o'clock. I knew what the officer,
came for, and I did not try to resist him
or anything." When he was informed
as to the statement of Boyle, that the
woman was seen running ** around
naked, he said: "Boyle said so? It's a
lie. The woman never run around
naked, not to my knowledge." When
he was told that Boyle had charged
Kramer with furnishing him with the
, saws he acted as if it was the first time
he had heard of it. He said: "I was
always accommodating to the boys, but
I never passed anything at all to them
without first going to Peterson and tell
ing him." . . • ~yy.
Detective Keneally went to New.
Ulm after Kramer. Marshal Campbell,'
in explanation of why the work of find
ing the men was given to Chief Clark
instead of Sheriff Richter, says it was at
County Attorney Egan's suggestion.
The attorney general and the governor
had been consulted with by Dr. Dana,
Mr. Hart and Mr. Campbell previous to
the meeting of Friday afternoon, and
the governor and attorney general told
them to confer with Judge Egan and
have him commence judicial action at
once. "The board as a board has not yet
taken any official action," said the mar
shal. "The board has no executive
power," he explained.
"MARY ZENS' CONDITION. >
County Physician Ancker talking
about the girl, Mary Zens, said he and
Dr. Simms had examined the girl for
insanity. "I was particular to question
the girl upon that very thing," ex
plained the doctor. "I asked her if she
hadn't been a little crooked. I knew
that she was silly, and the muscles of
her face would relax into an idiotic
smile, and she couldn't help it, but I
didn't like the leer in her
eyes. She denied that she
was : intimate with anybody,
but finally she admitted that she had
been an inmate of a house of ill-fame
for three days, and that the landlady
had got $22 for her and gave her only $1.
I understand she was turned away from
home." The girl's relatives live near.
St. Cloud. Referring to " the accommo
dations for keeping female prisoners,
he asked: "Now, who is really respon
sible? Why, instead of fixing that
woman down stairs, where the sheriff's
office was for the county board, why,
don't the board have that room fixed up'
for female prisoners, and let it have its
meetings up stairs the same as it has
been having them? That room is con
tiguous. The door could be barred, and
bars put across the window.- It wouldn't
make very much expense. And if they
thought the female prisoners might get
out, why.not have a door put in across'
the hall at the end of the treasurer's
office? They can get some woman
pretty cheap to take charge of them,
and then, with a little expense, all this
trouble could be avoided. What is $500
or so to Ramsey county? I have always
advocated a place for criminals who are
sick. Because a man is a criminal is no
reason why he should not have proper
medical attendance if he was sick. In
our new building, which we. are putting:
up, 1 am having a few close rooms for
just that class of people."
SHERIFF KICHTER TALKS.
In View or the Newspaper Discus
sion He Explains the Whole
Sheriff Bichter, in view of the news
paper discussion, yesterday decided to
recede from his position of absolute si
lence, and volunteered a statement of
the affair, which does away entirely
with the suspicions which have attached
to his mysterious action. The sheriff's
version is as follows: :jpSBH
"The first intimation I had of the
charges against Shields and Kramer was
(in Tuesday afternoon, when I was in
formed by Secretary Hart that the
board of collections and charities was
in possession of charges that they had 1
been guilty of criminal intimacy with
the insane woman,' Mary Zens. * 1 was
thoroughly surprised,, and began at
once to Inquire into" the matter. Tues
day evening Secretary Hart, Dr. Dana
and Marshal Campbell, of the board,met
me in my office, and we called Peter
son in, and 1 questioned him about what
he knew and told him to tell the whole
truth. He then stated that he
had opened the door of the
She SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SUNDAY MORNIKG, OCTOBER 30, 1887.—TWENTY PAGES.
jail to see if • everything' was
all right, and just as he entered he saw
the woman get up off the cot occupied
by Kramer in the lower corridor, shake
down her clothes and run back up stairs.
That was the substance of Peterson's
testimony. We then called in Shields
and Kramer and Picha, one by one, and
questioned them. Now, the woman's
place of confinement was on the inside
corridor of the upper tier of cells, and
the key was carried by Shields, lie
admitted having let her out to go to
the corridor below, and gave as a
reason that she had been singing and
yelling and keeping all the prisoners
awake. Kramer could not deny that
she had been on the cot with him, but
would admit nothing more. That was
all the evidence we had and the woman
herself had said that she had not had
intercourse with Kramer, having been
interrupted by Peterson. After hear
ing the testimony I talked the thing
over with members of the board, and we
all agreed that it was too filthy, a case
to be given to the newspapers, at least
until we should find stronger evidence
against the men. There was nothing
said that Tuesday night about
PLACING THEM UNDER ARREST,
and I did not discharge them then for
two reasons. In the first place, we
would have been without a watchman
for that night, and, again, 1 wished to
think the matter over during the night
and to act carefully and justly. When
1 arose the next morning 1 had fully
made up my . mind to dis
charge Kramer and Shields, and
1 telephoned to my chief deputy
Mr. Lunkenheimer, and told him to
have Shields wait until I arrived at the
office. 1 came down about 9 o'clock,
called in the men, and discharged them.
I did not do so because 1 believed they
were guilty of intercourse with the
woman, because that had not been
shown, but 1 did it because it was
plainly shown that Shields had been
guilty in letting the woman out of the
upper corridor, and that Kramer and
the woman had been found in a com
promising position. Secretary Hart,
of the state board, was to
have met me at the jail that morning,
but he did not come. He telegraphed,
however, about 10 o'clock, and said he
could not be present, and 1 told him
then that I had discharged "Shields and
Kramer, the watchmen. He did not say
anything about holding the men, or
about swearing out warrants for their
arrest, and 1, myself, did not believe
that there was any evidence to hold
them on a criminal charge, and
I do not now believe that
the charges can be sustained.
Both Kramer and Shields were in the
city all that day, to my knowledge.
Shields could not have left the city
until 4:30 p. m., and Kramer was in my
office as late as 4 o'clock that afternoon.
Neither of them made any effort to get
away in a hurry, and 1 have said all the
time that Shields could be found at
Forest Lake, where he used to live, and
where they found him to-day. I was sur
prised when the matter was made public
by the newspapers on Thursday, but I
adhered to my determination not to say
anything, because I did not believe that
publicity was going to help matters at
all. But the whole affair has been so
vastly misrepresented I concluded that
it was best to make this statement. I
have not discharged Picha because there
was no good evidence against him.
THIS INSANE WOMAN
said that she had intercourse with both
Shields and Picha, but there ' was no
proof. On the other hand, I did not
give the least credence to her state
ments,.because she had, while in jail,
told my bookkeeper, Mr. Gibberton a
dozen crazy tales of men with whom she
had been intimate. She seemed to have
a mania for the subject. She pointed
out five or six men among the prisoners,
whom she had never seen outside their
cells, and swore that she had been inti
mate with them, and once, when a law
yer came up to call on one of the pris
oners, she pointed him out and claimed
to have slept with him time and again.
"There is absolutely no truth in the
story printed last evening that one of
my deputy sheriffs had been seen with
his arms around the other female pris
oner, Annie Dixon. The woman her
self denies it all. She was released yes
terday by the district court on her own
recognizance. For fear they will charge
: me with having her put out of the way,
I want to explain that it was all done 7 :
• WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE.
City and County Physician Ancker ex
amined and reported her condition to
Judge Egan, the county attorney. Yes
terday morning Judge Egan, without
my knowledge, sent a deputy after her
and had her brought before the district
court, where, on his motion, the bail
was reduced from $1,000 and the judge
released her on her own recognizance. ~
"A word about this man Boyle. I
took him over to the police court myself
Wednesday morning after 1 had dis
charged Kramer. I did not think at the
time I discharged Kramer that he was
the only witness I had against Boyle;
but, as a matter of fact, if Kramer had
appeared, and Boyle had been held to
the grand jury, it would have dropped
there, for Kramer could not possibly

THAT BOGUS PETITION.
The Trades Assembly Sits on the Men
That Circulate It.
HIGH RATES NOT WANTED.
The Assembly Not in Sympathy With
the Anarchists by a Very
*• Long Deal.
The interstate commerce law and its
effects upon the railroads of Minnesota
was the topic that lent most interest to
the Trades and Labor assembly at their
meeting Friday night. The ("lobe, in
its report of the last meeting of the
trades council, published a petition to
the governor, praying, him y; to
interfere against any contem
plated action of the railroad com
missioners looking towards a reduction
of freight rates. This, petition, as al
leged, came from Minneapolis employes
of the Milwaukee road. At this same
meeting of the trades assembly testi
mony was offered by members working
in and around railroad shops and yards,
going to prove that the petition
was . inspired by the general man
ager of the Milwaukee road, and
was first circulated through their yards
by favored employes. From the Mil
waukee yards in Minneapolis, accord
ing to statements made Friday evening
in the assembly meeting, the petition
has proceeded to the Northern Pacific
and Minnesota & Northwestern shops
and yards in St. Paul. A number of
employes in the Northern Pacific yards
were induced to sign the petition be
cause a rumor had gained currency that
a general "lay-off" on Monday was
contemplated, and the "lay-off" was
owing entirely to the lack of business
the railroad sustained through the en
forcement of the interstate law. A del
egate from the Workingmen's Educa
tional association, who is employed in
the Northwestern yards, and who claims
to have seen the petition, assured the
assembly that, the largest number of
signatures to the petition embraced for
eigners entirely ignorant of the princi
ples involved. "If the same thing pre
IN THE OTHER YARDS
as obtained in the Northwestern there
were more aliens than citizens on these
petitions; hence the governor should
be acquainted with the fact,*' exclaimed
the delegate. '
On motion of the Washington assem
bly, the trades assembly by resolution
emphasized its declaration to stand in
line with the Farmers' Alliance of Min
nesota to bring about and maintain an
equitable freight rate, and the commit
tee on appeals and grievances were di
rected to present to the governor the
protest of organized labor in St. Paul
against any efforts -of self-apoointed
. A socialist member, with a copy of a
weekly newspaper in hand, read "some
extracts commenting on the attitude of
the Trades assembly to the socialists.
He made a motion that a committee be
appointed to demand retraction. This
gave rise to a passionate debate, during
which it was made manifest that, al
though the Trades assembly indorsed a
meeting to be called at Turner hall, to
protest against the execution of the an
archists, it had no part in the proceed
ings. The: prominence given to the
Trades assembly in that meeting was
entirely owing to the zealousness of
the socialists, and was unauthorized by
the assembly. Their action was severely
denounced, and ther motions to inject
resolutions of any character, were re
jected unanimously by the trades unions
SET UPON AND ROBBED.
A Gray-Haired man Who Lost His
Pile in a Saloon.
A gray-haired man named J. Paulson
came to police headquarters 'at 4:30
o'clock yesterday afternoon, and claimed
that he had been robbed of $205 in cash
in a saloon kept by James- Cosgrove at
No'.'''37o'Robert 1 street, = known as the
"Little Ryan." Paulson has for many
years been a foreman in the employ
of P. Brennan, the railroad contractor,
and recently returned from Montana,
where, he was engaged on the extension
of the Manitoba road. Paulson had two r
checks on the First National bank of
this city, one for $174.85 and the other
for $60, which he cashed yesterday. He
paid $25 of this to his partner and spent
some small change.The remainder which
was mostly in $20 bills, he carried in
his pocket, when he entered the. '-Little
Ryan" saloon to get a glass of beer. He
says he handed the bartender a $5 bill,
and received no change. When he
asked for his change he was invited to
take another drink. There were two
men beside the bartender in the saloon
at the time. One of these men beckoned
him into a little room at the
"fear of the saloon an.l when
he -entered . the two pounced
upon him. He was choked by one of
the men and the other relieved him of
his pocket-book. Both made their es
cape from a rear door before he could
call for help. Lieut. Cook and Officer
Marion went to the saloon and arrested
James Cosgrove, the proprietor, and
Harry Dougan, the bartender. Cosgrove
had is7o s>on his person when
searched at the central station. Paulson
identified Cosgrove as the man who
choked him while he was robbed. The
other robber has not yet . been
caught, but the police have a clue to
his identity. He is believed to be an
ex-convict, who was released from
the 'Stillwater penitentiary this week.
Cosgrove and Domran both refused to
talk, but it is believed Dougan will re
lent and become a witness against his
employer. -: V-> ■-.'
Judge MeCafTerty Discharged by
the Court on the Charge of Lar-
The case of the State against John J.
McCafferty, United States commis
sioner, for larceny, was heard in the
municipal court yesterday afternoon by
Judge Schoonmaker. Judge McCafferty
appeared in court with District Attorney
Baxter and. Assistant District Attorney
Lawler as counsel. Assistant County
Attorney Munn prosecuted for the state.
John F. Fitzpatrick, the complaining
witness, was a lawyer, and was formerly
the law partner of Judge McCafferty.
The charge grew out of a dispute over
