HUSBAND KILLS
HIS GIRL BRIDE
After Shooting 17-Ycar-Old Wife
Attempts to End 1 li*
Own Life.
DOES NOT TRY TO ESCAPE
Surrenders to Officers and Is
Lodged in Jail at
Gloucester.
(Special to The. Tlmes-Dlspatch.)
Gloucester, Va., .luly !t).?Joseph
Smith, a shipbuilder by trade, mur?
dered Ills seventeen-year-old wife, a
bride of three months', in rohl blood
before eye-witnesses on 'the puollc
highway within 200 yards of Muyrus's
titore In this county last night us
they were returning from an excursion
trip to Norfolk, lie then attempted
tu end ills own life.
The deed was apparently pr,medi?
ated, for Smith purchased tho pistol
With which the fatal shot was tired
while In Norfolk yesterday.
Alter making su e that his aim had
been correct and that his wife was
dead, Smith Walked about fifteen feet
away from her dead body and lired
it bullet into his head. 'Pile wound is
not serious, and I'r. lie .ley. the at?
tending physician, states that smith
will recover,
Mr and Mrs. Smith were members
of an excursion party returning from
Norfolk. They, with otht rs, got oir
the boal at Severn Wharf and were go?
ing home in a buggy. Smith, it is
said, was dissatisfied with tho eon
duct of his wffo while on the steam?
er, nsd when they had reached a point
Within a lew hundred yards of their
omc, ne.ir Mayrus's Store. Smith usKod
his wlffl if she was going tp their
hbmc. Her reptl ovioonUy did not
please him. and with the remark,
"This ttilriK has been going on long
enough," ho pulled the revolver out
of his pocket and fifed. Mrs. Smith
fell out of the two-seated conveyance,
and before medical assistance could
be rendered she hi! breathed her last.
No statement was secured from her
before she died. The bullet penetrat?
ed the back of her head and lodged '.n
lier brain.
Th- wife-murderer made no effort
to escape and was arrested at his
home this morning by Deputy Sheriff
Cioodall Minor. Smith v. as given a
preliminary hearing before a magis?
trate, and was brought to Gloucester
and lodged in jail this evening tu
await grand Jury proceeding's.
N.? 111 reel Motive.
No dlreet motive for the crime has
been ascertained, except the rumor*
that Smith was displeased with his
wife's conduct with other mtn while
on the excursion steamer.
These who witnessed the shooting
could not be communicated with to?
day as they live in a remote part of
Gloucester county, known as Guinea;
Several ptople who saw Smith on
the excursion yesterday state that hi
had not be.en drinking, while Others
slate he had Imbibed somewhat.
When brought to town this evening
Smith said he had been on an expan?
sion yesterday and was not feoilng
very well to-day. lie asked for a I ip
of coffee and was permitted to j:o intu
rt nearby restaurant. When asked by
a correspond! nt n: The "Tlmcs-Dls
patch if he had any statement to mane
he replied "Not this evening, maybo
later." Smith sent word to an attorney
to come and see him. after which he
was placed behind the bars.
Smith Is suffering considerably
from the sclf-lnfflctcd wound !n his
head, and he appears to be under a
heavy mental strain. He was appar?
ently composed when the deputy
sheriff arrlvod on the scene this morn?
ing, at which time Smith made the
remark that he would have gone to
the sheriff had he e n requested to do
so. Some of the acquaintances of
Smith declare he Is unbalanced.
Smith's crime is the third one re?
sulting In death committed In Glou?
cester county during tlio pits*, four
tun? months.
Tho wife-murdered Is about forty
live years of age. He lias b"n mar?
ried twice. Hit first wife died nhout
'two years ago. leaving r.fiven children.
