"I don't see why there is so much
red tape about this. I'm ready this
minute to go to the electric chair. Any
body who thinks that this life is worth
while is mistaken. I have faced death
many times and would face the chair
without a quiver of a muscle."
So Rev. Hans Schmidt, the con
fessed murderer of Anna Aumuller,
told his counsel, Alphonse G. Koelble,
when the latter visited him in the
Tombs in New York.
He declared that not only was ho
alone responsible for the killing of the
girl he loved, but he had been plan
ning to do away with the hopelessly
insane, the permanently crippled and
diseased Incurables by poison or the
The book of- certificates issued by
the board of health had already con
vinced Inspector Faurot and his men
working on the case that Schmidt had
hit upon what he believed an easy
way of getting his victims under
ground without exciting suspicion.
Koelble said he was sure Schmidt's
cool admission of his plan to put
folks out of their misery for their own
good was further admission of his in
sanity. "Schmidt Bhowed spirit for the first
time," said Lawyer Koelble. "He was
mad and very excited. He was dis
turbed because he said the newspapers
were dragging in innocent people and
touching them with scandal."
"Schmidt," continued the lawyer,
"said he did not want to answer the
questions of the district attorney but
simply say 'I did It,' meaning that he
killed Anna Aumuller.
"Then he made this astonishing
statement when I asked him about
the death certificates: 'I was planning
to do away with a knife or by poison
a number of people for whom life
wasn't worth while. What's the use
of living If life Is worthlsss? The
quieter ono goes the better for them.

Sciimidt, the priest, and Muret, the
doctor, says the dispatch, occupied
themselves a great deal in Germany
several years ago with hypnotism and
spiritualistic seances. They had a
quarrel and were bitter enemies for
a time, but were reconciled before
r'ather Schmidt left for America.
The priest has said that St. Eliza-
the choicest productions of for-

kill the rectory girl who loved him.
Schmidt will be brought to trial for
the girl's murder next month before
Judge Foster. His defense will be In
sanity because that is the "only pos
sible defense" according to his lawyer.
"I want to get a trustworthy alienist
of the highest standing to examine
Schmidt," said his lawyer. "I appeal
to such a man to come forward anil
give his services without charge."
Father Evers, the Tombs chaplain,
said he is getting more convinced
