On investigation it was foond to bo the body of rTmiry Schiey. who was found with bis skoli crushed and his pockets rifled, not far from his own home. Mr. Oatea at once sum moned neitrhtors and a physician, ana a coroner's jury was impaneled Two larete wounds were found dered ma:t:s head, one extending irom sue evo to the ear. and the cheek bone was broken. Blond was slowly oozing from the mouth and uose, but the body was quite cold ,nd had w'lftWy been lifeless for two hours, slot far from the body was found a heavy club with which tho irhastly deed had evidently been done. Henry Schley was a man 4T j flars of age, who for stme years had kepv: a saloon on Broadway. On tho Saturday night before the murder a large number of persons had visited the saioon after the conclusion of the Democratic caucus and had spent money freely. At ll :4o Mr. Schley started to go home, taking with him something over ir0. Ancust Janke, the bartender, and Hubert Holcom. a man in the employ of J. G. Hart, accompanied Mr. Schley part of the way homo und were tho two last prsons who ever spoke with bim. The two men gave c satisfactory account of themselves after tbey Darted with hiin, and although one was ar rested on suspicion, It was very evident he bad no guilty kr.owledcre of the t - agdy. About, half an hour before the saloon closed, John Bernhardt, a young man not twoittv - . a format - bartender ot tne muroeieu man, came in. He was supposed to know tlisi Mr. Sehloy hud a large sum o" money with him. a id also the route he would take to reach his homo. These facts, together with some suspicious behavior on the part 01 young Burnhardt. cuussd his arrest at nine o'clock on Sunday evening. Ho admitted 1 ...iiit.v knowledge of the crime, but claimed the deed was committed by a called Alfred whose other nam? he was ignorant of; that Schley was struck down before his eves, and he was terrorized by this man mrpro to warr. or assist Schley. the watch of tho victim and 535 were found uoou Bernhardt this story was doubted, and r.s rhe excitement was momem.. .ij inr - it was deemed expedient to take tho orisoaer to Milwaukee where on Monday confessed that he and he alone was. guilty of tbe atrocious crime, and that robbery was the sole motive.

Thero I was bom fi:rn I attended tho Luthoran s - :hooi To. ine to wausua last oveuioi found employment as a driver 01 a ouurmu spring wagon. In February I went to work for Scbiey and remaioed his barkeeper until April 13, when August Janke took my place. Siace then I have been idle and boarded with Jim Marr, on main street. How the idea of killing Schiey came into my bead I do not know - . I certainly did not thiDk of it until Saturday night when I loft the saloon. Did 1 ever have a quarrel with him Only a few words, and that was on account of drinks for which we bad shaken dice. I then left the place but came back again and stayed until 1 o'clock, when Louis Buecbner and I went to Fritz Kramer's saloon. There we remained a short time and - .vent over to toe Town hail where tho caucus we left and ail of us went back to Schley's saloon, where I remained until a quarter past 11. I was alone when I went out. The moment I had reached the street tbe .1 hV t - illmir the man entered mv head. Tt all eamo like a flash and took complete ftbou' possession of me. I felt unable to resist the temptation to get money, and resolved to do it. From my former association with Schley I knew his habits, where he carried his monev, and what streets he would walk home on." McCdll street I knew was very - dark and there I concluded to await him. Whoa near the Wisconsin Central (umber yard I found the club, which I took along. There was no one in sight and I waited behind a big tree. THTKItS DOW.f TUB HELPLESS victim.

Then I knelt. dowD and opened his vest, from the pocket of which I took the hoo' in wbiuh he carried the money. I searcbei the other pockets in his clothes also and took what money I found So, I don't think that I was excited ; I couldn't sco his face and don't know hA mA hR oves ooen or not. Then I laid my hand on his heart and 'oami tttllt it had stopped beating. '1 know that bo was dead then and rose bo my feet again.'' "What did you. thihk of just then!" was asked. "What did I think f tbe prisoner replied. and a melancholy sroilo appeared on h thought nothing. 1 was rr.gntcnea a little bit when I realized taat 1 nau ueeu 1 kneeling on a dead man. 1 s:uck tne money in my pocket and walked away, first on Barney street, nert along Broadway and then on Main street until I reached Marr's bouse." When I entered tbe house 1 louna aiarr anu paid him 53.50 for board which I owed. I believe that I was somewhat ezcited, but 1 don't think that he noticed it. Once in my room I undressed at odci and went to bed, never looking at the money or counting it. lie coits to CHtnicn. "Sunday morning Igot up at T o'clock and looked at the money, after which f had breakfast downstairs. Ot course, evoryonB was talking about the murder. I kept cool nri talked with the rest about it. k breakfast I went over to the saloon of Jake Eerbrandt, the brother - in - law of rJshley, andtiok a few drinks with him aud the other boys.

All that I heard talked about was the murder and murderer, and I beg to feel weary. I w that the people were excited and heard many threats, bat did not flunk they would find mo out and for that ,umn I wasn't afraid. From the barber shop Willie Wiesenthal audi went to Her - man Fritz'ssaloou. In the company of Aug. Jouke, Hilly Davis and Lee AJjiyoard I spent I the rest of the afternoon and evening; we walked around and visited a nuruuer 01 saloons. Janke said that he did uot kuow what to make of it." "How do you explain," was asked, "that Janke when ho testified before the coroner's jury said that he heard some one ask you to go along witb liira that night, tbe same s you told it yourself?
