ILLINOIS MURDERER CAUGHT AT SALT LAKE, Samuel Moser, Who Killed His Family it Illinols, Attempted Suicide and Well Into Hands of the 'olice. Samuel Moser, who murdered his wife and children at Horton, Illinois, May 13, was taken into custody at Salt Lake and given into the hands of Illinois officers. Moser endeavored to commit suicide by shooting and end his misery, but his aim was poor and hardly produced a flesh wound. bunday morning at daybreak, Moser, wet to the skin and with bloodstream. ing from his head, was found on Second South street by Officer Palmer, who took him to the station. Ile freely de clared that he was the murderer, and that he had attempted suicide as a consequence. lie said that he had gone down to the bridge over the Jor dan at the intersection of Second South and Tenth West, stood on the bridge, 'shot himself and fell into the water. The wound, however, was sufficient only to slightly skin him, and he got out as quickly as he could. While the police were loth for atime to believe the man's statements, look ing upon them as the ravings of a mind diseased, a search of his dripping eloth ing revealed the fact that he had told the truth. Moser's crime was a revolting one. He tells the story as follows: "I killed my wife, one son of seven years, another of five years and the baby of the family, aged eight months. I was alone during a portion of the day, my wife and children having gone to the Omish church, of which her father is one of the preachers. She came home about 6 o'clock and went into the cellar. I followed her down and shot her. Then I took my oldest boy into the bedroom and shot him. I called the next boy to me, told him to go into the pantry, I think it was, when I shot him also as he turned his back toward me. I could not do it with him look ing at me, you know. Then came the baby. I took one shot at her as she lay in the bed, but I do not believe that I hit her the first time, so I fired twice more. Then I knew that she was dead. "Then I went down into the cellar where the body of my, wife was lying and covered it up with a piece of old carpet. I threw some clothes over the bodies of the children. leaving them where they fell, locked up the house and started away. "I reached here Thursday morning. Last night I went down to the river, stood on the bridge, shot myself in the head and fell in. The cold water re vived me and I crawled out. When I found out that the wound was not fatal, I concluded to try again, but could not find my pistol. So I wand. ered back up town." Moser's mind is evidently unbal anced, and he was probably insane when the deed was committed. To the police he said he did not care what be came of him, as he had nothing to live for.
