FRED BAUEU IOOT0 WIFE AND
THEN SUICIDES.
WOMAN IS IN THE HOSPITAL
Culmination of Unhappy Married Life
-Were Married in Idaho Palls a
Year Ago and Came Directly
to Anaconda.
(Special to Inter Mountain.)
Anaconda, April 12.-About 8 o'clock
last evening a double tragedy was
enacted in a squalid cabin in the rear of
607 East Commercial avenue, when
Fred Bauer, a former employe of the
WVashoe smelter, and also a one-time
sectlon hand on the B., A. & P. railroad,
tshot hris wife ,tad then blew his own
brains out. He died an hour later.
The woman was taken to St. Ann's
hospital and still lives although her
condition is regarded as dangerous.
The shootlng was the culmination of
trouble between the two and the, settle
inent of real or fancied wrongs on the
part of Bauer.
Up till a few days ago they resided at
1010 East Third street. Then Mrs. Bauer
left her husband and went to live in a
cabin on Commercial avenue.
Wanted Her Arrested.
Last Sunday night, after the woman
had left Bauer, he appeared at the
police station and asked Night Chief
O'Brlen to arrest his wife and a man
named Henry Van Hore for im.
proper conduct. Last night Bauer
went to see his wife and persuaded her
to return and live with him. This she
refused to do, whereupon Hauer pulled
a revolver and fired at her, the bullet
entering her body just below the left
nipple in the region of the heart. He
then sat down on a chair, placed the
gun to his right temple and scattered
his brains about the room. In the mean
time Mrs. Bauer managed to reach the
neighboring cable of Mrs. J. C. Harris,
a few feet distant. She was taken In
side and Drs. Lelser and Barrett called
and the police notified of the shooting.
When Night Chief O'Brien arrived on
the scene he found Bauer sitting on the
chair with the blood and brains stream
ing from the hole in his head. He was
i)laced on s mattress in the room and
died 10 minutes later.
Taken to Hospital.
Mrs. Bauer was removed to the hospi
tal, where she was seen shortly after
wards by an Inter Mountain Reporter.
Mrs. Bauer stated that they had been
married in Idaho Falls about a year ago,
and came to Anaconda a few weeks
afterward. Up to a few days ago they
resided at 1010 East Third street. Bauer
would not make a living, so she left him
and went to live in the cabin where the
shooting took place.
She said Bauer was addicted to the
use of laudanum and always carried it
on his person.
Bauer told the police previously that
his wife had squandered $3,000 of his
money while they were living in Idaho.
This Mrs. Bauer denied, saying that she
never had any money to speak of.
Recently Arrestet
Mr. and Mrs. Bauer were arrested
some two h eeks ago and tried in the
court of Justice of the Peace Juane, on
a charge of having stolen some chickens
from a neighbor named George Stock
Ston. They were given a jury trial,
adjuged guilty and fined $5.
So far nothing has been learned of the
antecedents of either of them.
A trunk found in the cabin was taken
charge of by Coroner Hughes and will
be opened at the inquest in the hope
that some necessary information be dis
covered. The Inquest will be held to
day.
Bauer was 36 years of age and a Ger
man. His wife is much younger and qi'
ithe Mormon faith.
