HAD LEFT HIS REVOLVER
AND FLASHLIGHT INSIDE
Mnrtin Itednnniier, 'sixty-two years
old. 2,11.1 Fast Dauphin street, n night
watchman, wns beaten to death enrly
this morning nt the plnnt of the Thompson-Adams
Co., leather manufacturer,
Lefevrc street nnd 'Frnnkford creek,
where he wns employed.
Hodnnnuer was found nt ft o'clock
crumpled up on hLs knees, with
his bend touching the ground, near the
door leading to tlie plnnt engine room.
There wns n wound In the head and
nearby lay n foot-long section of three
inch Iron pipe.
Michael .1. Fish. fiOfi Llndiey nvenuc.
nn Inspector for the American District
Telegraph Co., found the body. He hnd
been sent on n motorcycle when the
wntehmnn ouid not be roused on tlie
telephone after falling to "pull" the
wntch box signal nt fi o'clock.
Fish aroused Dr. J. L. WIza. of 4420
East Thompson street, who hurried to
the mill. A glance showed that the old
watchman was dead.
Time of Murder fixed
Tlie police of the Belgrade and
Thompson streets stntlon were notified.
Detective William Belslmw. head of the
murder squad, came from central de
tective headquarters nnd took chnrge of
The wntchman's clock records nt the
A. D. T. Compnny's office indicated
thnt the murder was committed some
time during the half hour preceding the
finding of tlie body.
A mysterious circumstance wns that
the watchman had neither his revolver
nor ills flashlight, which he usually car
ried. The body had not been robbed,
and It wns found thnt his weapon and
torch had not been tnken from him, for
they were discovered Inter In the engine
room. Tlie door of the engine room
was closed bill not locked.
.Many Theories Advanced
A theory which the police are trying
out Is that the watchman lienrd a noise
outside of tiie building nnd slipped out
of the side entrance to investigate. Op
posing this is the fact that he left his
revolver behind hlin, which he senrrcly
would do under such clrcunistnnces.
A more likely theory, tlie police think,
is thnt some one whom lie knew enticed
him nut of the place, and thnt he went
unsuspectingly, leaving his weapon be
hind Jilmj tiint there was perhaps an
altercation, unheard nt thnt time nnd
in thnt lonely neighborhood, and thnt
the nttneker struck him with the pipe
Itobbcry apparently wns not the
motive of tlio nttnek, as nothing hnd
been stolen from the mill nnd there wns
no sign of nny one having entered
through tlie engine room.
Itednnnuer was married, his wife and
four sons living nt 23111 Fast Dauphin

the house a week, having formerly lived

The transfer, the note contended,
