KILLED HIS WIFE Bruce Harris Finally Perishes for Crime Committcd in Lynchburg. [Specjal to Tho Tlmes-Disoatch.l Lynchburg, Va., jfarch 14.?Bruce H&Y-rls, who was shot and killed last evening in Blrmlngharn, Ala-, whlle re slsting arrest for tho tnurdcr of his wlfe, has been quletly hunted for by the Lynchburg Police Department slnce the night of September 7 last. when ho shot and killed his -wife, who -was with several friends on the j grounds of a carnival whlch was eshlbiting on the Shaner lot during that -weck. The murder was wltnessed by fully 100 pcrsons, all of whom seem to have been tcrror-stricken, for strong, stal ivart men, a3 well as weak, tliuld wo men, stood by and saw thc deed without so much as llftlng a hand to prevent it. The murdered woman had loft her husband and v/as llving apart from hlm. He wos sald to bc Insancly jeal ous of her and without cause. About 0:30 o'clock on the night of September 7 Harris walked up to his wife, whose name was Sarah Mclton Harris. Put tlng hls loft arm around and over her sbouldcrs, be said something to her in an undertone, and fired tbe revolver, whlch was grasped in the rlght hand.,. The wounded woman fell prostrate. with her facc to the ground. She struggled wcakly, and then the man took her by ono of her heels. turned her over roughly, and, whllo . holdlng thc foot, ho dellberately fired the scc opd shot into her body. He dropped the foot and the wife was dead. Then Harris backed out of the big crowd, covering hls rctreat wlth his revolver, and was soon lost ln tho dense fog, whlch mado It impossible for him to bo located. At the tlme of the shootlng thero were a number of pollcemen on duty and there wero probably 1,000 people on thc grounds. Yet only those who were actual wltnesses to the tragedy were the only' persons who paid the sllghtest attontton to tho matter at tirst. There Avere several shootlng gallerles on the grounds and a Wild West show, ln whlch the.ro was almost constant shootlng, so that the shots flrccl by Harris attracted no attentlon. In a short tlme, however, it was gen crnlly known that the woman had beon killed. and a strenuoua effort was made to locate the murderer. It was learned ln a few days that Harris boarded a Norfolk and Western frelght train, on tho Forest-Concord line, apd went dlrect to Petorsburg. Ho was trneed to Rlchmond, where he went by the interurban trolley llno, and then he seems to have dropped from slght. Threo weeks ago, however, the local police department learned that Harris was in Blrmlngharn and that he huns around a moving picture establishment and that ho could be found there. Chief Seuy took thls up wlth the Blrmlngharn dopartmont, but thls did not sccm to locate thc man.
