reached the other side of the river I
would return and go back to the flat
"After I had disposed of the body I
wanted to destroy all evidence of the
crime. I took the mattress on whjch I
had slain bsr and carried it to a vacant
lot and there I burned It.

In November, 1912, Schmidt left St Bon

at the time of hla .arrest today.
JUttle Is known of the history of Anna
Aumullef before- she took employment In
the St, Boniface parish house the week
before Chrlstmns, 1910. According to the
statement Issued tonight by Father Braun
she left his parish house In the summer
of 1911. returning on Thanksgiving day,
1912, and left tho second time August SO,
A Fnitbfal Worker,
At this time she said she was about to
be mnrrlcd and go to Ohio to live. Father
Braun said that he' and. hla, sinter, who
Is his housekeeper, had become attached
to the girl because she was very pleasant
and" a faithful worker,
Despite her statement to another maid
employed In the rectory that she was
leaving to bo married, Father Braun said
tonight that he was forced to discharge
her two woeks ago "because her mode of
living was unsatisfactory."
The girl, as nearly as could be learned,
was 21 years old.
Inspector Faurot had assigned Detec
tives James J. O'Neill, Frank Cassassa
and ntchard McKenna to locate the house
or flat Where the murder was committed.
They made a house to house search in
tho vicinity of the store of George Sachs,
In Eightieth avenue, where was pur
chased the pillow slip in which parts of
the body were wrapped. In this same
locality the tar paper foUnd with parts
of the. torso, was purchased, It was
Such records ravealec that the only
pillow slip of tho description, not
previously recorded, had been sent to 'a
purchaser at-the Bradhurst address. On
Saturday the detectives lenrned that the
third floor apartment had been rented
recently, but tho occupants had not been
seen for several days. An inspection of
the flat showed blood stains and articles
of wearing apparel and baggage,
Letters tn Flat.
In tho flat were letters that connected
Miss Aumuller with the rectory of the
St Boniface church.
From Father Braun. rector of the
church, the detectives learned that Miss
Aumuller left hla employ two weeks ago
und that Father Schmidt, while an as
sistant rector there, had shown unusual
interest in the girl.
With the three detectives and his sec
retary, Inspector Faurot went to the
rectory of Bt Joseph's church this morn
ing. The nrrest of Schmidt followed a
few momenta later.
While not denying that Itev. Hans
Schmidt had been ordained and had been
permitted to officiate at services in this
city, an authoritative statement issued
today after hla arrest from the head of
the New York, diocese characterised, htm
as a "wanderer" and not a priest of the
diocese and was not being so recognized,
although he was assigned to assist the
rectors of Its churches.

After his arrest and while en route to
the Tombs, Schmidt was questioned by
the detectives, They asked him what ha
had done with the mattress and he told
them, they said. Inspector Faurot
stopped the machine at the vacant lot and
3tne charred remnants of the mattress
were found. Then Schmidt was asked
where ha bought the knife and the saw
:wlth which the body of Miss Aumuller
was cut up. He Indicated a shop as they
passed It. Tho car was stopped and
Schmidt pointed to a knife with a ten
Inch blade in the window as practically
Identical with the one he used. This
shop -Is not far from the Tombs. Further
