Des Moines Daily Leader (Newspaper) - October 1, 1901, Des Moines, Iowa TEAR NO 330 DBS MOINES IOWA TUESDAY MORNING OCTOBER 1 PAGES PRICE THREE CENTS HOUL TALE DISCREDITED ERS THINK VAULT WAS NOT THREATENED hard blow was given the gun aim missed A man had ily come up to the soldier and dealt the At the same time it was told man No 2 the soldier a heavy instrument on the head and attempted to etab him A gash L Shaped and two inches long was cut through the clothing including the overcoat and a was made on De body Tne blow so hard that De Frend was knocked down a email hill and was un- able to gain hie feet before iha men disappeared m the darkness O Sept officers and All the Men Accept Story Attempted Desecration men of Company C of the United States infantry on duty at tery guarding the place of President McKinley worked diligently today investigating the strange story s In which Private De Prend who was on duty at the top of the vault day night figured so prominently The same reticence imposed by military regulations which prevented the cers and men from making detailed statements concerning the incidents last night was operative today The representative of the Associated Press saw all of the commissioned officers several officers and a number of privates and gleaned the All of the officers and the members of the company m general accept fully the story toy Private De Prend last night and really believe that the prowlers were about the vault with no good purpose Today only one of the commissioned officers adhered to the belief that an attempt had been made upon the tinel for ghoulish purposes He It was the real thing It was prompted by the pure cussedness of some people who thought to bring re- proach upon the nation by doing age to the resting place of the dead Confidence De Freud All the men who were seen expressed the belief that Private De acted In good faith and that he related only what he believed to be the real With the captain and others he went over the details of the affair at least a dosen times and it is said never varied in a matter of importance Particular inquiry waa made as to his sobriety at the time and it is said that it is established be- yond all reasonable doubt that he had not heen drinking and that he was in his normal condition The moet com- mon belief is that the sentinel was overwrought toy the loneliness of hie position that his nerves were over- taxed and the imagination contributed some to the details related in good The post was regarded by all as particularly isolated and depressing to the man guarding it at night and it is understood that sentinels will be stationed at the point in the future Captain Biddle thanked the reporters for what he called the fair manner in which the incident had been in the reports saying that they gave a full and complete ment of facts bo far as revealed last night He fully convinced last night of the truth of the story as re- lated but after investigation ed doubts not of the sincerity of vate De Prend but of the of the conclusions Captain Biddle authorized this ments I think the sentinel deceived himself on the occurrence I do not think an actual attack as related by him curred When a light came there was no evidence found of a full Report to Otis The matter has been reported in full to General Otis at Chicago ing the department to which the guard is attached Whether there will be a formal inquiry into the matter remains- General Otis to determine Officers the cemetery expressed the hope fiat inasmuch as no actual harm had Been formal action would be taken Sergeant Cook who is also known as Sergeant KochT through the misspelling of his on one of the rolls and was reported to have heaid re- marks Sunday afternoon among ors further as follows I was on duty at the guard tent near the vault Sunday afternoon There were three funerals at the tery and many people passing all the time Three men representative ing men such as come by the score every day spoke to me One asked liow long the sentinels in front of the vault gates were kept on duty and I told him half an hour at a time He said he read they were kept there two hours and thought that was hard service I told him that at first they were kept there two hours but that the time had been shortened He asked if there were other guards I told him there were several on the hill over the at other places The second njan said he did not see the use of all fuss that no one would try to do any harm now The third man said he mistaken that there were lots of people who would like to see the whole thins blown up No I had not then nor have I now any suspicion that any have any interest in or sympathize with any act of violence I think they were speaking of the disposition of other classes who migit be prompted to such acts The usual guard and patrol was on duty today Last night after the story of Private De Prend the force by the addition of ten men Ware arrived from Fort Wayne Mich today and relieved enant Avery who went back to the fort Family Discredit Story friends of the family of the late President McKinley emphatically dis- credit belief in the idea that the shot that reported fired by the guard De Prend at cemetery last night was on account of any attempt to desecrate the tomb They do not at- tempt explain the strange story of guards or account for the firing of shot which the cemetery officials and other residents near by say they heard and they do not believe that two men would undertake to make an at- tack on the vault with seventy diers on guard or near at hand It is believed the military ties will make a thorough tion of the stories told by the soldiers on guard Sunday night There are unconfirmed rumors that the shot was fired on account of an fall and also that it was the result of personal differences The of- in charge early instructed diers not to talk of the affair The statements of the guard made Sunday night could not be obtained un- til the officers had secured their re- ports from them and while the officers declined to be quoted they were made with their knowledge and in their ence The few persons who succeeded in admission to the cemetery were directed to the officers for all tion and guards were told not to talk of the accident among themselves while outsiders were present This is said to be in accordance with military tions Private Story It nearly 8 o'clock when Guard Be Prend saw or thought he saw a prowler in the rear of the vault behind tutree and in a shadow Upon being challenged by the soldier the wan re- motionless behind a tree He then about forty feet from the ier De Prend advanced made a ond challenge and brought his gun ready to fire The man m the time had dodged to a tree ten feet distant fiom the first The soldier lenge and fired but ao he did so a ant who was officer of the day as soon as he heard the challenge and shot to the assistance of the guard He was followed By other soldiers The sentinel attacked however in the rear of the vault on a hill and before the relief force could the hill the men escaped Hunt was made for the prowlers but no trace could be found of tham The vault is but a short distance f roen the west edge of the cemetery and the men evidently escaped from there into the fields and woods near by The man who dodged the trees De Prend carried a weapon in one hand and a package done up in white in the other He says he could recognize the man if ever seen again The man who attacked him was masked Hanna Body le Boston Mass Sept Hanna who is in this city said today in regard to the affair at the tomb of the late President McKinley at The body is safe soldiers will guard it until the monument we are to build is finished When I return to land the various committees will be appointed and President Roosevelt will name the permanent trustees who will collect the contributions for the ing of an appropriate monument and tomb When it is finished and the re- mains of
