2 THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 4, 1913.
HANS SCHMIDT HURLS UK I WHENAHGERED Self-confessed Murderer of Anna Aumuller Held to the Grand Jury After the Coroner's Inquest. 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 and exclaimed: "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 der arrest. 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. Army Orders. H , WASHINGTON-. D.

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 since April. 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 inlsnlflpnrl nun(ttin.t Inn marks. TIia bill. 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 bill. 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." IMPORTERS READY 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 ANOTHER LIFE LOST ! II DEM VALLEY Aged Man's Dead Burro Is Found Tethered; Search ing for the Body. 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 ranged by the heat. The man. went to Carbonate for the purpose of securing work. Failing In his quest at IS. S. Chafoy's camp, he decided to start noith, saying he had known the desert for thirty years. He had lived In southern California, Utah and Colo rado. His relatives arc unknown. paid representing the difference between 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 ly known, and these wero not known until the conference report was agreed to While these experts have been busy day and night preparing for the change In the customs laws, It will be another week or ten days before the results have been officially verified and new regulations placed In the hand3 of collectors. 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 Imports. 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.
