Arrange CONFESSES TO COLLINS MURDER Georgetown, Del, April 28.—The question now being discussed here is William Waite colored, a murderer, or he is showing insanity, lie lias made a confession to the Pinkerton detectives that he killed Mrs. Alda Collins, look the money she bad in her stocking, hid the same and his bloody shirt in the branch and escap ed, Waite was arrested on the charge of committing a murderous assault on James Anderson, a farmer in Sus sex county, on tlie day upon which Mrs. Collins was buried. Ife was taken to Georgetown jail, and since that time some of the officers and the detectives cm ployed by the Collins family have been of the opinion that he knew something of the murder. Blood was found upon his clothing. Sheriff Hart, who has the custody of tlie prisoner thought the best plan to follow would be to lake the negro tothesccno of the murder, alluw Him to pointout where he had hurled tlie money and tlie bloody shirt and dig them up. Tills was. a sure way, in tlie opinion of tlie sheriff, to as certain whether the cunfcssion was of any value. Accompanied by tlie two Pinker tons, the sheriff took the prisoner to the scene of tlie murder near Laurel, but here the confesson appealed to fizzle. On arriving at the scene of the confession, Search was made for the place where the money and tlie bloody shirt were alleged to be bur led, but no trace of tliem could he found, and the negro did not point out the places where they had been buried, lie even went so tar as lo assert that lie had never been upon the place before and tliat be knew nothing ot it. At times tlie negro would say yes or no to certain questions which were asked concerning tlie murder, but His answers were unsatisfactory and gave tlie impression that he did not know what lie was talking about. An amusing feature of tlie confess ion was the statement of Waite as to where he crossed tlie branch. Ac cording to the story of the men in the confession, he crossed at this point on a bicycle. When the branch was examined at that point it was ascertained that a man could not have crossed it without swimming. Even swimming would have been hard After going about Hie place in a vain search for several hours and attracting considerable attrntlon from tlie curious crowds which fol lowed, Sheriff Hart anil the prisoner started back tu Laurel. The detectives put Waite through the sweat box and then the colored man who is believed to be insane confessed aud signed the confession before Magistrate C. E. Purnell. In this confession tlie negro said Ilia I lie was asleep in tlie carriage house of Collins on tlie morning of tHe murder and awoke aboutG o'clock in t lie morning. He heard Collins tell his wife to bring the money which she had and flic seeds which lie was to plant and come into tlie field. Waite was seiz ed with a desire to get tlie money, and when Mrs. Collins came into Hie carriage house he struck her with an iron bolt and then cut her throat. Waite, further in His confession, said that lie had then taken tlie seeds and Hie money and gone to the branch a short distance from tlie Held where Collins was at work and buried the money. He also became frightened and buried the bloody shirt along tlie branch. Seeing so many people about lie thought if best to leave the sec tion, and lie did so on His bicycle. Later lie went on toward the place of of Anderson, and on Monday of Mrs. Collin's funeral lie assaulted Ander son, intending to kill him, but failed. Tlie confession tallied well with the story told by Collins as to tile conversation with bis wife in reler ence to the money, aud also in ref erence to coming lo the field with the seedo. it also agreed with the footprints which were found near tlie "branch'' and with the story of flic small boys who saw the negro in the vicinity of the scene of the murder. Tlie fact that the confession bad been made was kept rather quiet, as it was [eared there would be violence if it was known that a con fession had been made by the negro, hut it managed to leak out as all such matters do.
