has brought renown to the town of Belfast,
and every feature of the place shows evi
dences of the development of the gigantla
concern over which ho presides. Between
10,000 and 12,000 men, women and boys, are
engaged on the vest works, which cover
something like 100 acres of ground on the
banks of the River Lagan.
The nago bill amounts to over 12.000 a
week, nnd. roughly speaking, GO.000 people
in the town are dependent on the fortunes
of the establishment.
In 1897 the Arm built ten vessels repre
senting a tonnage of SIH0 a. world's record.
Last year, out of 1.400.000 new tonnage
launched on t)ie ocean way by British ship
building firms, Mr. Pirrle'a establishment
claimed SS.OOO tons.
Not only in shirs Is he Interested, but also
In the wafr ways of the oceans 'and ap

Mr. Plrrie. in rpeaklng to The Kenublia
representative, said:
"I have urged the Government to deepen
the Mersey, the Thames and Jbe Clyde and
the approach to Belfast"
He told the Americans to dredge New
Tork Harbor- some years ago, and they fol
lowed his advice. Now vessels have 0 feet

wagon in the yard, when he had been told
never to do to. For this disobedience he
was scolded and slapped. He was his fa
ther's main assistant in the bakery, and.
working at night, he slept days. Mr. Wohl
from stated that he told the boy to go to
bed so be could rest for the night's work.
He refused to retire and was punished
again. He became very angry and west to
his room- . .
A noise several moments later Mrs. Wohl
from describes as being like the falling of
a heavy object attracted her attention. She
mentioned the matter to her husband. Mr.
Woblfrom was first at the side of his son:
his wife and daughter. Bulda, followed
Sergeant Thomas Neugent and Officer
Herman Temmen were called in and a
crowd of neighbors visited the scene.
The boy worked at night In the oven de
partment of the bakery, which Is In the
basement of the Woblfrom home, and In
the morning he drove the bakery wagon
until about 7. He was fond of his few
associates, who. his- father says, often
enticed him away when he had work to do.
Because he was compelled to stay at home
one morning about a year ago the lad be
came very angry and said he would Jump
Into the rive" some day.
Young Wohlfrom kept a pistol of his own.
Fearins that he would Injure himself, his
father took one away from him several
years ago. but he procured another, and
seeing that the boy was determined to keep
one, Mr. Wohlfrom let him have his way.
The revolver used In the tragedy yesterday
was kept In the top drawer of the dresser.
