2 THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 4, 1913.
Self-confessed Murderer of
Anna Aumuller Held to the
Grand Jury After the
ACTION OF PRIEST
CREATES AN UPROAR
Women Among the Specta
tors Scramble for Souve-
nirs; Detectives Force
Prisoner Into Seat.
NEW YORK, Oct. 3. Hans
Schmidt, priest and self-confessed mur
dercr of Anna Aumuller, was held today
for the grand jury following an inquest
held by Coroner Feinberg before a jury
of millionaires, with Theodore P.
Shonts as foreman. The other jurors
were Marcus Loew, B. J. Grcenhufc, Ed
win Marston, G. G. MeDuff, M. Eegons
berg, G. W. Fairchicld, Howard Weir,
Latham R. Reid and P. A. O'Laugblin.
The verdict rendered was that Anna
Aumuller came to her death "on Sep
tember 2 at GS Broadhurst avenue, New
York City, from a hemorrhage caused
at the hands of Hans Schmidt "
Schmidt, whose unkempt, dishoveled
appearance amazed the spectators,
throw the crowded courtroom into an
uproar just before the jury retired by
leaping to his feet and hurling a
rosary and a handful of coins into the
faces of a group of spectators behind
him, whom he accused of laughing at
him. The beads of the rosary scattered
fl like shot and the crucifix struck a re-
porter over the eye, inflicting a paiu
ful Scramble for Souvenirs.
The detectives guarding the prisoner
sprang upon him and hurled him to his
seat, while the score of women in the
courtroom scrambled for the beads
and coins as souvenirs.
Until the moment of his startling
outbreak, Schmidt had sat motionless.
When ho stood up to throw the beads
and coins he was shaking with anger
"What are youi laughing at? What
are you laughing at?5'"
The detectives and reporters declare
there had been no laughter, but
Schmidt's attorney, in a statement is
sued later, said his client had heard
snickers when the coroner had stated
to the jury that the dismembered re
mains of tnc dead girl would be buried
in the potter's field, uuless somebody
volunteered funeral and interment er
peases. Schmidt, the lawyer explained,
had concluded that laughter at" such a
moment was a slur on the memory of
his (lend sweetheart.
Witnesses Are Few.
Only six witnesses were questioned
and the actual taking of evidence lasted
only fourteen minutes. The discovery
of the first fragments of the dismem
bered torso was described by Mary
Bann and Anna Hirt. The chum of tlu
dead girl told how she had identified
this section of the torso by a brown
snot upon the right breast. Inspector
Fuu rot told of the arrest and confes
sion of Schmidt and how the latter
claimed o have disposed of the body
after dismembering it. Coroner's Phv
sician King of Hudson county. N. JL
who performed the autopsy, testified
that death had resulted from hemor
rhage. Since his arrest Schmidt has grown
a reddish beard fuliy an inch long. He
was collarless and wore a negligee
shirt. His single-breasted black frock
coat was the only suggestion of the
clerical in his attire.
Shuffles Into Room.
His hair was uncombed and hung
down over his forehead. He walked to
his chair with a shuffling gait, looking
neither left nor right, shook hands with
his counsel, exchanged a few whispered
words and sat down. He seemed to
keep his gaze fixed on Anna Hirt, the
chum of the girl he had slain, and on
Inspector Faurot, who placed him un
Dr. King, who testified afc the in
questj declared later that he doubted
Schmidt's story that ho had dropped
all the sections of the body from a
North river ferry boat.
The physician said that the fact
that part of one of the legs was found
in the lower bay indicated that the
slayer may have dropped somo of the
j severed sections from a Conov Islnnd
or Sandy Hook boat. He also "declared
that if the head should ev.er be found
it can be fitted to the trunk because
of the jagged cuts made by the mur-
dercr in severing the vertebrae.

by members of his official family, there
was none happier than Joseph R. Wil
son, younger brother of the chief ox
ccutivc, who came here from Balti
more tonight to witness the signing,
rrs. Wilson and daughters are still at
Cornish, N. H., the summer capital. Bo
sides tho officials, a large number of
newspaper men crowded into tho pres
ident's office. There was an informal
reception for a few minutes and then
the Underwood-Simmons tariff law was
carried away to tho department of
state and deposited in the archives
along with other historic pieces of leg
islation. Quick Work at End.
The speed with which congress disposed
of tho last work on the tariff bill and
sent the measure to the Whlto house
demonstrated the anxiety of house and
senate to get through with the burden
that had held them in continuous session
Clerks of the senate were at work
throughout the morning correcting proof
on the engrossed copy of the bill and
making sure It contained no errors or

accompanied by the conference report
as agreed on by the senate last night,
came to the house as soon as that body
met. For more than an hour the house
debated as to what action It should take,
somo of the parliamentary experts argu
ing that no further action was necessary,
while others insisted tho house must re
cede from Its compromise cotton futures
tax. Speaker Clark finally, upheld the
latter contention and the house quickly
voted the cotton tax out of tho tariff
Sent to White House.
The last vote was reached at 1:23; at
2.15 the speaker had affixed his name to
the completed bill and within ten minutes
Chief Clerk Jerry South had carried it
to the senate and it had been signed by
Vice President Marshall. Clerks of the
senate then took charge of the bill and
conveyed It to tho Whlto house. Tho re
lief of both houses at tho end of the long
fight was apparent. Scores of members
of senate and houso had left the city
yesterday and there was less than a
quorum present in the hou3o when final
action was taken on the bill. Only ex
traordinary efforts of senate leaders kept
enough senators In town to enable that
body to work today on the urgent defi
ciency appropriation bill. Many members
left Washington tonight, although both
houses of congress will remain construc
tively in session.
Both Sides Agree.
The final steps taken by the houso to
day to comploto the tariff bill did not
Involve the rates or principles of that
bill. Republicans and Democrats con
curred in the action of receding from the
cotton futures tax, agreeing that no
questions of parliamentary procedure
should be left open to future attack in
the courts. It Is generally understood
that a determined effort will be made,
as soon as the new congress convenes
for the regular session In December, if
not before that time, to take up cotton
futures tax legislation and to endeavor
to pass a separate bill to regulate cot
ton exchange trading and to lay a heavy
tax on that branch of cotton trading,
which members of tho house and senate
characterize as "gambling."
First Trade Arrangement.
Germany will be the first nation to
tako advantage of that section of the
new tariff act which provides for the
negotiation of reciprocity arrangements
embodying mutual concessions In cus
toms taxes. Already the Initial steps have
been taken to secure such an arrange
ment, In anticipation of the signing of
tho bill by the president tonight. The
chancellor of the German embassy, act
ing In the absence of Embassador Bern
storff, ha3 been in communication with
the state department and it is expected
a rough outline draft of such an arrange
ment as is referred to in that section
soon will be ready for consideration. As
It emerged from conference this section
no longer contains the retaliatory provi
vlsions inserted in the senate, and is
now nothing more than an authorization
to the executive to "negotiate trade
agreements with foreign nations wherein
mutual concessions are made looking
toward freer trade relations and further
reciprocal expansion of trade and commerce."
FOR REDUCED RATES
By International News Service.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 3. In bond and
In ships lying outside various United
States ports with cargoes ready to take
Advantage of tho reduced rates of the
Underwood-Simmons tariff law, the
treasury department estimates there are
goods and merchandise valued at $100,
000,000. Three-fourths of this enormous
sum will enter through the port of New
York, the remainder being scattered
among the ports of Boston, PhiladelplUa,
Baltimore and more southern points.
Prom the moment the law becomes ef
fective, all merchandise will bo subject
to assessment under the rates of the new
Democratic tariff. As a matter of fact,
however, these rates will not be collect
ed. The government always takes the
advantage to make sure that Its revenues
are properly collected, and no chances of
loss under the new bill will bo taken.
Not until the collectors throughout tho
country aro thoroughly posted with re
gard to the new law and the detailed
regulations of tho department have been
received by collectors In tho remotest
portions of the country will importers
receive the Immediate and direct benefit
of reduced rates.
Collectors have been Instructed to con
tinue assessing tho duties under existing
law, withholding final liquidation until a
later period to be fixed by the department-
Through this plan the government
will protect Itself, and tho Importers'
money will be tied up until such time as
the department may order rebates to be

Special to Tho Tribune.
GOLD.FLEID, Nov.. Oct 3. Search is
being made in Death valley to the south
east of Rhyollto for a man "presumably
named Joplln, who left Carbonate, on
the cast side of Death valley, a week
ago. Three days ago his dead burro
with Its pack was found tethered to sage
brush, and it virtually Is certain that
Joplln perished, after having become de

tho old and the new laws.
This arrangement will be of advantago
to importers, as it will prevent any delay
In gotting their goods through the cus
toms house and onto the shelves of the
retailers and thence Into tho hands of
the consumer. Experts of the treasury
department were unable to begin the re
vision of the treasury regulations until
the rates of the now tariff wero official

While these experts have been busy day

Will Take Time.
Even then, it is claimed, the new law
will bo enforced only in a general man
ner. It may be weeks before the changes
in all their details and Intricacies have
been worked out and the new customs
duties can be assessed from day to day
as invoices from abroad arrive with the
Meanwhile, as has been stated, all Im
porters must liquidate their duties on the
basis of the Payne-Aldrlch law until the
government believes It has its new sys
tem in perfect working order.
When the new tariff bill was under
consideration in the senate a-propositlon
was advanced to assess all goods shipped
ahead of time and held in bond at the
rates of the Payne-Aldrich law. This
was not agreed to, for the reason that
the large Importers in New York and
other Atlantic ports notified the commit
tee that if tills were done the goods
would be removed from bond, shipped
back to Europe and reshlpped after tho
law 'went Into effect Tho committee
learned that tho Importers could do this
and save money, so they abandoned the
idea of collecting the higher rates of ex
isting law on goods now in bond.
