Suicide of Haai.
Chronicle, Nov. IS:
Morris Haas, tho rejected Juror, who
shot Francis J. Henoy on Friday after
noon, committed sutcldo at 8:40
o'clook last night In his cell at County
Jnlly No. 2. He fired a bullet into hla
forehead while ho lay on his cot,
dropped up In a blanket and apparent
ly asleep. Ills weapon was a 41-cal-Iber
derringer, an antlque-pattorn single-shot
firearm, which, It Is said, ho
had been able to concoal without bo-

and granted by the prison authorities.
It was considered odd, but no partic
ular notice was taken of it, and no
suspicion was aroused, although tho
two searches of the prisoner had been
defecttvo, In that tho shoes woro not
taken off and examined. The pollco

When Haas' body was found, It was

Not until an examination of tho dead
man's clothing was made did the pollco
And the evidence which convinced
thorn that the man had hidden the
weapon In his shoes. Captain ot De
tectives Kelly found one trouscr leg
rolled up, and looking doner, saw the
Indentation In the man's leg, which
showed Id him how tho pistol could
havo been tucked into the elastic
side of tho shoe, and hidden there, safo

door open and two guards patrolling
the corridor, I'atrolman Dohlo was
tho last man to tnlk with tho prison

cheerful, and did not exhibit the rest

his first night In Jail. Five minutes
beforo tho fatal shot was fired IJohlp
looked into the cell, and saw his pris
oner apparently sleeping. Haas op
ened his eyes and glanced nt the po
liceman, but Immediately closed them
Dohlo stopped out Into tho corridor
again, and tho next thing that hap
pened was tho report ot tho pistol
ringing through tho prison and telling
everybody that a tragedy had como as
a sequel to tho Heney shooting.
The manner In which Haas obtained
and kept tho weapon with which ho
took his life last night, Is something
which will need a rigid police Investi
gation, Detective Hums said last
night that ho believed the weapon
had been slipped Into tho man's cell
yesterday afternoon by-somebody who
eluded tho vigilance of tho prisoner s
Vlsltid by Hit Wife.
Hans wob visited by his wtfo at 2
o'clock yesterday afternoon, but ev
ery moment of that Interview ,was
watched, It Is said, by Patrolmen At
rtdgo and Kelly.
Two searches were mado of Haas
before ho was placed In that cell. Im
mediately after the Heney shooting
tho would-bo assassin was carefully
Learched by Captain Duke and Detec
tlvo Hums. These men say that the
Job was done thoroughly. That was
at G o'clock. When tho tnnn was tak
en as a special prisoner to tho County
Jail at 7 o clock, ho was again
tenrched, tills time by Detectlvo Sep
geant Burko and Patrolman Kelly. On
both occasions, It Is admitted, tho
shoos of tho prisoner were Ignored.
although all the rest of the clothing
gand the entire body were examined.
Detectlvo 'William J. Burns is or
the oplhlon that the, weapon was
passed tollaas in tho Jail. He said:
"Tho man was searched twice, onco
by myself,, and l am certain that be
had no derringer concealed In hit
clothing when J10 entered his cell.
Ther can', be but ono conclusion,! and
that Is that ho got tho weapon from
somo one In this prison."
District Attorney I.angdown was of
ine same opinion. 110 said:
"Tho roan waaearehed thoroughly
oy experienceu men on two occasions.
Tho question li be answered Is,
"Where did ho get tho derringer with
which his lire wofe snuffed out?'
rtudolph Spreckels said -that there
was nothing clenr as to where tho
weapon came from, and ho did not
wish to make a statement until he had
all tho facts in the case.
Talked Freely to Kelly.
Captain Kelly' was In the Jail all yes
terday aftornoon'and evening and had
ample opportunity to observe tho pris
oner nnd get his state of mind through
lepeated Interviews. Ho said Hint the
man was plainly laboring under a
heavy Btraln, which ho showed In tho
almost feverish manner In which ho
talked about his family. Kelly Bays
that Haas had a haunted look In his
eyes and was abjectly melancholy,
winch plainly told how his predica
ment was preying on him.
"He told mo a pretty full story of
his life," said Kelly last night, "but
never dropped one hint that ho con.
templated suicide, or hoped to end
his troubles in a way to cheat tho law.
He spoko about his family constantly,
and said that they had always lived
happily together 'until ho was pro
claimed an ox-convlct In open court.
"That, ho said, mado lilm despised
by his former friends. His business
began to bo bad and he brooded over
It. He was unable to sleep and sat
up often and smoked until morning.
Ho told me that a womari friend of
tho family told him that ho was grow
ing crazy, and threatened to swear to
a complaint for his arrest on the
ground of Insanity.
"Haas told mo that when ho decided
to shoot Honey he didn't tell anybody
about It, nnd hu declared to 1110 that
nobody knew about It at nil. Ho add
ed, in his last Interview with me, that
ho hoped his victim would not die."
Gave One Hint Only.
Haas spent his last hours on earth
quietly. Ho ate roast beef, bread and
tea, nnd his meal was a sparing one.
To his guards ho seemed moody, some
times very gloomy, and nt other times
rnthcr cheerful. One remark which
he dropped to Sergeant Burko ws
significant. He' said:""
"Before' this thing ends there will
be sensational developments."
In the light of eventn which fol
lowed it Is believed that the man was
darkly hinting nt his own suicide.
Putt Bullet In Brain.
The wound was In tho middle of the
forehead, Haas evidently having
placed the muzzle of tho weapon
squarely against the skull. The, ball
pierced the brain, nnd death must
have been almost instantaneous.
