to separate them, was shot In the ley;, and

A later dispatch says: "Thompson

company. Tin y met Fo.ster In the dress

bringing about a melee, (luting which
Thompson aud Fisher were killed and
Foster probably mortally wounded. The
dress circle was quickly cleared, the oc
cupants jumping into theparquette below
and through the side windows into the
sireets. No one seems to know who fired
the first shot or how many were engaged
iu the shooting. With remarkable r.ipid
ity and before the theatre was fairly
clean-d of its occupants, 1,5'W people
clamored at the closed door for admit

it was ascertained that Thompson had

would have produced inbuilt death. Af

The theater where the affray occurred
was the scene kit year of the killing by
Thompson of Jack'llarris, then proptie

were probably two or the most desperate

BY ST'HANti TLATION.
Peter Schmitz.who Killed His Wife by
Choking-, Takes the Dose Himself.
Chicaoo, III., March 12. It was but a
moment's work. A tightened cord, a
pulled knot, andalife had gone out into the
uiht. At four o'clock Peter Schmitz was
exercising in the ju.il corridor; live min
utes afterward he was a corpse. There
have been suicides and suicides in jail,
but this one was peculiar.
l'eter Schiniu, was a carpentei
Bud builder Who had lived many
years in Chicago. l!y industry and
frugality he hadiiccumulated prop -rty un
til he was reckotied a well-to-do man,
and counted his holdings by thousands,
la Ids earlier days, when he wanted a
h-'lji-mate unto himself, and, like unto
the Israelite' of old, looked for a wife, he
had married. Five children were the result
of the union. l!ut two years ago the w ife
died, andthefatherwasicftaloiie with his
children. lie was then worth Sod.Uiio.
Last October he' married another wife,
one who called herself Theresa Schmitz,
and the' twain, wiih the children, went to
live at 314 Mohawk street. 15ut discord
soon prevailed, and domestic peace was
but followed by uxorious war. A wife of
twenty-two had uot married a husband
of forty only feir the reasons which bound
Juliet to Iiotneo, and trouble in the fam
ily soon followed the nuptials. She
wanted his money settled upon herself,
and so pestered him until he finally
choked her. It was one Saturday night
he. did it, and it was not known until
March 1, two davs after the murder, when
he surrendered himself to the police.
Schmitz. was at once taken to the
jail and has been there ever
since. Monday afternoon he committed
suicide by choking himself. The pro
cess was peculiar. At fouro'clocka party
of visitors had been talking to Xeal Mc
Keague, w ho occupied cell No. tw enty-live,
and passed through the corridor. Schmitz.,
occupying cell No. twenty-six, had been
exercising in the corridor, and came up
behind the visitors. They passed down
the stairs aud he entered" his cell, which
was opened. When the visitors entered
the ollice of the jail one of them was
found to be covered with paint,
and the clerk sent an employe of the jail
up to ceil number twenty-seven, w here it
was known some turpentine was. The
whole affair did not take more than four
minutes, but the messenger came back
saying: "There is a man dead in number
twenty-six," and investigation showed
the statement to be true, l'eter Schmitz.
had committed suicide.
The process was a simple one. Ho
hail iu his hand a three-quarter-inch
cord, which he had put around
his neck, tied iu a diamond
knot, and then pulled with all his might.
As soon as it was full tight around his
neck he had put a second knot in it, and
it took a knife to release the bond. I'.e
forc that knife came .strangulation had en
sued, and l'eter Schmitz was dead.
He had been an honest inau all his life.
Crime had been a stranger to him and
vice he knew not of. Unhappily married,
in a lit of frenzy he had killed his wife,
and his own hand expiated the crime he

Testimony Which Indicates That the
Star-Routers Were Prose

Wasiiixijto.v, I), c, March 12. Col
onel Cook continued his testimony this
morning before the Springer committee.
He began by making a correction lu his
testimony, stating that he had beeu of
fered by Colonel Wood 20,000 as a re
tainer for the Star-routers, Instead of
$2j,0u0. When he learned that Colonel
Uiiss had proceeded agaiust the accused
in the Police Court without consultation
lie wrote llliss a letter, stating that he
felt hurt at not being consulted, and urg
ing that it had been better If there had
been a free aud full consultation before
taking steps of that character. Colonel
llliss answered that he would like to
have witness appear in the Police Court,
which he did. He thought, however,
there was no necessity for proceeding iu
the Police Court.
"The Police Court proceedings went to

salary than was paid to Cabinet otllcersor

the bill for ti2,3u0 was precisely the same

it was upon the example set up by Attorney

"The case against Boone ought to have

Witness took up the indictment drawn
by Mr. Kerr against the Dorsey combi
nation which was a failure because of
errors; he said those errors delayed the
case about two months and resulted in
Sanders escaping. The employment of
Kerr was by Attorney-General Brewster,

The Day of Suppression and Misrepresen
tation Near Its EndAdjourned Meet
ing of the State Committee.
S r. Louis, Mo., March 12. The follow
ing report of the adjourned meeting of
tho Hegtnar State Bepublican Committee
In old Turner Hall to-day, is taken from
a local evening paper. It contains some
"mighty interestin' readin'" for those
particularly concerned :
"The Hoodlum Republican State Cen
tral Committee met lu open session tig tin
this forenoon, considerably smaller than
tho one yesterday. Chairman Filley aud
Secretary Beach were on hand early, tho
former looking a triile careworn. Previ
ous to the opening of proceedings the ac
tion of the Silk-stocking! In refusing to
recognize tho "Hoodlum" Committee
was discussed on all sides, and a great
deal of loud talk was indulged in by the
irate committeemen and the supporters
of the Boss. Tho feeling was
strongly lu favor of ignoring
the Van Horn men entirely
hereafter. The sentiment In favor of u
"unilication of the Republican party" had
evidently undergone a serious change,
and there was nothing said about har
mony or joiut action. Tho Hoodlums
professed to the reporter that the Silk
Stocking manifesto of yesterday would
not effect them in the slightest degree,
and that the Sedalia Convention would be
n lizzie. The delegates w ho would uttend
that gathering, they said, were iu many
case- elected by a handful of sore-heads,
aud in some cases elected by themselves.
called the meeting to order at hall
past eleven o'clock, and said that it
was impossible for the commit
tee to correct the misstatements
which were being made, as
fast as they were made. At the execu
tive session, yesterday, an address to the
Republicans of the State was agreed
upon, and that address would answer
all the misstatements made, fully and
truthfully. No assertions were made in
that address which could not be proved
to be absolutely correct. Mr. Filley re
plied at some length to the state
ment made bv Mr. Crowell, vesterdiv,
vo the effect that all the Republicans f
the Slate had been invited to take
part in the Jefferson City Convention
of l9i2. He held that this was not
true, but that, on the contrary, only
those Republicans were Invited who
approved of the Jefferson City plat
form, which excluded ninety per cent,
of the Republicans of the Slate, lie
then went on to give a history of
the secession movement, beginning
with the nnis.s-mcetiiig at Mercantile Li
brary Hall and ending with tlio conven
tion which gave birth to the Van Honn
eoiiimiiteee. He denied the charge made
in the Silk Stocking address that "the
Filley committee in this city, under the
direction of the boss, refused to endorse
the Stale ticket," regularly nominated,
and that "even the honored nanieof Judge
David Wagner, the candidate forjudge
of the Supremo Court, was refused a place
upon the ticket because, forsooth, the
convention which nominated him was
neither called nor managed by the ex
boss." lie said that this charge had
been denied often enough and that it was
absolutely untrue. In the course of his
remarks Mr. Filley denied
II F, WAS A ROSS.
He said there was no necessity for any
body being afraid of him. He would eat
nobody up. He didn't have any hoofs,
nor did he have a tall. Those who had
acted with him acted with him from
choice and not through fear. He then
went Into a review of his course from 1S71
to the present time, denying the charges
which had been made against him by the
WisUkhr, Post and the lilnhe-l nmii-Ml.
He charged Einil Praetorious with organ
izing a bolt at Jefferson City in Hill
against Abraham Lincoln, and with being
a chronic, bolter ever since. He was will
ing to follow men who staid in the parly,
but he was not willing to stand by men
who tried to lead him outside of the Re
publican party, as the (Huhe-Ih iniwnit did
when it entered into an alliance with Stil
son lliitchius in 177 to defeat the Repub
lican party. During the course of his
remarks Mr. Filley alluded to the fact
that the UUjIir-brnivcrid would not print
his speech, and that the evening papers
did not have room enough for it. A gen
tleman In the audience said: "We ought
to have a Republican paper of our owiu"
"And we will have one and dou't you
forget it," replied Mr. Filley, which re
mark w as greeted with loud applause.
read from his books a statement regard
ing the condition of the treasury, which
showed it to be depleted. The assess
ments made for the campaign of 1SS0
amounted to $3,230, and the amount col
lected was 8700. "I couldn't build a
87,000 brick house with that," said Mr.
It seems that the candidates on tho Re
publican State ticket of 1SS0 were assessed
and paid their assessments after this
manner; I). P. Dyer agreed to pay 1,000
and paid Ji.'lOO; Milo .I.Blair agreed to
pay $2ii0 and paid nothing; Jas. Broad
well was assessed 200 and paid 3i':
Lurkin A. Thompson was assessed -00
and paid nothing; Horace A. Harding
agreed to pay $500 aud paid $30; (ieo. It.

bolts made by those who are at present
connected with the Van Horn movement,
and defends the course pursued by Mr.

urging combinations wherever possible
with the tireeiiback-Labor party. Tho
address also contains various decisions
having a bearing upon the present status
of affairs to prove that tho Filley Com
mittee Is the regular and only Stato Cen
tral Committee in existence.
