Henry Riedel; a German weaver, at Wil?
mington. Dei., about two o'olock Saturday
morning shot and killed his wife and his
nine-year-old sou, while they were lying in
bed asleep. The murder is a curious one,
as there was no apparent motive for a sane
man to commit the deed. Last Saturday
his wife, who worked iu the cotton mill
with him, ami who was about to become a
mother, gave the customury two weeks' uc
tice that she would quit work on Monday
morning. When she went toner loom towork
Frank Ferrel. the loom boss, told her that
he had secured a woman iu her place, and
rather rudely pushed her away from the
maohine. This angered Riodell, who re?
monstrated, and also quit work at once. He
sought redress from a local justice of the
peace, but was told that the expense of ob?
taining justice would cost more than tho
sum involved. The insult to his wife prey- j
ed on his mind, and although he was not a I
heavy drinker he indulged a little too much j
iu beer tb*;. evening. On his way homo he j
stopped with friends and while irj a rage i
threatened that he would buy :\ pistol and '
shoot the loom bo:S, the foreman of the
mill, hi-: own wife am! child and then him?
self. He was a loving father, and he i>.ud j
his wife lived happily, without a .-erious
quarrel ever having rullleti their marital
lifo He simply desired to put them out of
their misery, as bethought, before despatch?
ing himself. The family wenl to Philadel?
phia on Tuesday last, and remained until
Friday night, when thej returned. He'
bad procured work in a mill there, and iu
tended to move Saturday. That nigh! he
never retired. After carrying his little
boy i>) bed he went !o a store und bought a
bull dog revolver, with cartridges of forty
four-calibre. He returned home and paced
up and down tho house until two o'clock
next morning. Ho then describes what bo
did us follows : "I word ituo my wife's rocm
and first Sired two idiots, at the wall to .-et- :f
tiie pistol woulii work. Thea 1 leaned over
the boy and shol mj wife in tho forehead,
and afterwards 1 shot tho boy i>i the ii mple. j
Neither ever moved. 1 tru-n Bbot myself,
and going hack to my room, I l?y dowu on
my lied and slept for four or Qve hours."
His wife und child presented a horrible
sight, being covered,with blood, while tho
pillows and bed-spreads were crimsoned.
He wied to shoot himself through the head,
but the ball :!iuek n bone und glanced of!,
and his injury is not serious When asked
as to his motive, ho said: "I was tired of
moving. Wherever I went we were umong
strangers, land I thought that 1 would send
them aneLmo to a better wotld, Willie was
a good boy. He was innocent, and that is
why I killed bim. If Iiu had been bad I
would not have killed him. My w ife was
all right." He seemed perfectly sane, and
answered every question put to him ration?
ally. There is no doubt that he thought
that he was delivering them from future
misery. It is said that ho is an infidel: He
is strictly honest, and the fact that ho was
recently out of work on account of the mill
shutting down, and thus gi Ming into debt,
worried him considerably, liut ho had paid
oil'all his debts. He is o bright, intelligent
man, thirty-six years pi age, and came to
this country eleven years ago. His wife
was one year his senior, and was an honest
and industrious woman. The coroner's jury
held Riedel! for the crime.
