BIRKLE: Frank BIRKLE WHO SERVED SENTENCE FOR KILLING MAN, IS INSANE NOW ST. NAZIANZ MAN NARROWLY ESCAPES A LYNCHING AT HANDS OF ENRAGED FARMERS AT CLEVELAND - BROUGHT HERE FOR EXAM Frank Birkle, a St. Nazianz man who served three years at the Green Bay refomatory upon conviction of manslaughter for the killing of Louis Bahr, a well driller at School Hill in 1904, was adjudged insane in probate court today and committed to the Northern Hospital at Oshkosh. Birkle is 37 years old and unmarried. Birkle narrowly escaped lynching at the hands of enraged residents of Cleveland Tuesday night when it is alleged he sought entrance to the home of a well known resident with avowed intention of molesting the daughter of the household against whose character it is said Birkle has circulated vile reports. Birkle, it is said, had boasted of his intention and neighbors, fearing violence might be offered the young girl, interfered to prevent Birkle from entering the home and when the man offered resistance, he is said to have been roughly handled and at one state, a rope was secured and Birkle was being hastened to a tree where it was threatened he would be strung up, but he was saved by the cooler heads who counseled turning Birkle over to the authorities. Sheriff Pellett and District Atty. Healy were notified and Birkle was held at Cleveland pending arrival of the officers Wednesday when he was brought to this city and locked up. Dist. Atty. Healy after investigating the case, advised that Birkle be examined as to his mental condition, it being said that the man had been acting strangely for some time past and reports to the authorities indicated insanity. Judge Chloupek in probate court ordered an examinatin and Birkle was adjudged insane and committed to the asylum. Birkle, since his release from the reformatory four years ago, had made his home at St. Nazianz and had been engaged in business as agent for a gas light concern. The man had always been a little peculiar according to witnesses and lately had caused some annoyance to a number of people. Birkle visited Cleveland Tuesday and is said to have boasted of his intention of visiting the young lady and friends of the girl's family, fearing that he might carry out his threats, organized a posse and when Birkle reached the house and tried to enter, he was taken into custody. The man appeared in court somewhat battered from the beating which he received at the hands of defenders of the girl. Manitowoc Daily Herald 02 January 1913
