While walking in the garden of

Lieut. Wanderer Admits Slaying
Wife and "Poor Fool
He Hired."
CHICAGO, July 10.-In one of the
post remarkable and cold-blooded
crime confessions ever given the Cb
cago pollee. Carl Wanderer, former
army lieutenant and a bridegroom of
less than a year, admitted last night
that be murdered his wife, together
with "a poor fool he hired to be
itilled." on the night of June 21.
The true story of the double-slay
Ing-the first version of which was
that Mrs. Wanderer had been mur
dered by a robber who in turn was
killed by Wanderer-was exacted
from the former army officer after
hours of continuous questioning. Ex
hausted and nearly frantic becapse of
lack of sleep. Wanderer described his
crime in detail.
He gave as his reason for the slay
ing that he wanted to be rid of his
wife so that he could go back to the
army.* She wa son to have become
a mother, he said, and he "hated the
idea of having a child and other
family responsibillties."
Wanderer declared he finally de
cided murder would be the best way
out of the situation and so planned
the crime with the double purpose of
making it appear to be the result of
an attempted robbery and enabling
him to pose as a hero for havlag
killed his wife's supposed murderer.

came hours of griling in the
Wtevttorneys office. State's At
torney Hoyne personally conducted
the inquiry.
He was assisted by his secretary.
George T. Kenney. and Assistant
State's Attorneys James C. OBrien
and John Pristilki.
During the afternoon Wanderer
sought to maintain his original story
of robbery. He went again, as he
has done nearly a score of times dur
ing the past /eek, into the details of
how a ragp.d man. unknown to him,
stopped bhim and his wife in the ves
tibule of their home, of how the
stranger demanded money and how
he began Bring at him.
He retold how his wife accidentally
had gotten into the line of his Are

When the convention called by
the Committee of Forty-eight to
organize a third party, and plate a
national ticket in the field assembled
at the Morrison Hotel here this
morning, it was without a numube

movement had hoped to merge into

servedly into the party strong
A Labor party committee met until
late last night with Committee of
Forty-eight leaders, but few results
were accomplished. The labor lead
era insisted that their party be given
recognition in the official name of the
third party, and also that the latter
adopt, practically in its entirety, the
|Labor party's platform. To this the
Committee of Forty-eight representa
tibes would not agree.
The two committees are to mest
again today, but if an understanding
can be reached it is douibtful whether
a merger can be effected until the
whole question is placed before the
Labor Patty convention, which will
open here tomorrow.
It was announced today that the
Labor Party had requested the Com
mittee of Forty-eight to submit a
proposal in writing whereby the two
organizations might be able to get
together on a working basis, each
continuing to preserve its identity as
a party, but both working for the
same national candidates, and in gen
eral, the same principles. This pro
posal is now being prepared, and if a
merger fails, may be adopted by the
two parties.
Such a move is regarded as a boost
for the candidacy of Senator La Fol

In the meantime the labor party
Strengthened its own political force
by effecting an understanding with
the Non-Partisan League of South
Dakota, another group particularly
desired by the third party backers.
Announcement of this was received as
indicating that the Non-Partish%
League will stand by the Labor party
in whatever move the latter makes,
and that if a merger with the labor
group cannot be effected, the Non
Partisan League will desert the
Third party.
Two other groups which had failed
to come in at the time the convention
opened were the Single Tax party and*
the American Constitutional party.
The former's chief objection to a
coalition is the strong sentiment
among Committee of Forty-eight
members for Senator La Follette of
Wisconsin as the party noinee.
Speaking for the constitutionalists.
Edward T. O'Loughlin, a leader et
the organization, said the desirability
of all groups getting together into
one big party could not be disputed.
