History of tho -Walworth Faiu'dy and the
Story of tho Tragedy for which Y ling
Walworlh was Imprisoned.
Ai.iiany.N. Y., Ang. 2.
; Frank Walwir-th, who has been
conlincd in tho State prison at Au
burn under a life, seat e-neo for mur
der in the second degree for shooting
his lather in.1873, was pardonn 1 by
tlic Governor yesterday. On his trial
one of the pleas of tho defense was
insanity; rind reports from the prison
indicate thai he.has been insane since
his imprisonment, even if he was not
at the time of the shooting. Ho was
sent first to the prison tit Sing Sing,
and was afterwards transfer red to
Auburn, where be has been under
akkival Ol' iii's MOTHER.
Auhuhn, N. Y., August 1, 11:50
p. in.?Mrs. Walworlh arrived here
this evening with her son's pardon,
and the party, consisting:'df mntberj
Frank and tho yotingcr, brother, left
on the 11:45 train for Saratoga. Not
withstanding the lateness of the hour
a crowd gathered at the depot to see
the story OV the tragedy.
Man field Tracy Wal worth, the
novelist, and the son of late Chan
cellor, was shot and killed at the
Sturtevant house early on the morn
ing of June o, 1373. The iuceutivo
to the crime was the desire on the
part of the son to avenge wr..ngsdonc
Ids mother. Mr. and Mrs. Wal worth
?who was Miss Ilardiu,of Kentucky
?were hing residents of Now York,
but i heir domestic life was marrod by
continual differences from shortly
after their mat riagc until 1870, when
a separation was decided upon, Mrs.
Walworlh went lo Saratoga with her
eliihl ron, having her husband in Now
'i'ork. A year later she succeeded
in obtaining a full divorce, with some
thing of an income. Her husband
aller this divorce wrote to her letters
of i lie mo t cruel descript ion, up
braiding her in (he coarsest terms and
threatening her in various ways.
Young Frank Wal worth was brought
up in the Atmosphere of domestic
trouble, and, as was natural, warmly
espoused his mother's cause, and
more than once as he. grew to man's |
estate confronted his father and
ordered him to discontinue these in
sults. On Monday, the 2d of June,
young Wn I worth left. Saratoga, say
ing he was going lo New York to ar
range some family mutters. Me
reached tho c'uy in the afternoon,
engaged n room at the Sturtevant
house, sending1 the following note a
few minutes after arrival to his father,
who was boarding at a house on
Fourth avenue, near Fifty-fourth
? o'clock.?I want to try and set
tic some family matters. Call at the
Sturtevant house after an hour or so.
11 I am not there I will leave word
at the oflice. F. II* WalWouth.
The Idler whs soul b) a messenger,
who reported that Mr. Walworlh wn<
not at h >tue. Frank then went to his
roohi and locked himself in. At 0:80
in the morn ng Mr. Walworth, sr.,
called,al the office of .the Sturfe> ant
house, and when the boll boy took up
his card he found Frank fully dress
ed. He said to the boy :. "Show
him lip; all right." The bellboy
piloted .Mr. Walworth upstairs; and
on opening the door saw young Wal
worth silling in a chair by the win-,
(low. Mr. Walworth entered, the
door was closed, and what Iiupponed
after we id is i.nly known from the
admission made' by Frank after his
arrest1. The room Was a 1 dug and
narrow one, and had but one chair.
Frank bays that he oflcrod his father
the chair, and as he passed him to
lake it he walked to the door as if to
sit on the bed, and then p'acing his
back against; the door, drew a live
barreled Colt's revolver and leveled
it at his father, calling upon him : t
the same time to promise never to
molest or threaten him or his mother
again. Frank said his father made
the pledge, and that ho (Frank)
lowered hi9 pistol, and leaning against
tho bed, hegnn to talk of old troubles,,
They became excited, and ere long
words /passed between thorn that
could not he recalled. Mr. Wal worth
arose from his ,chair, and? Iii? soil]
stood On Ids guard. Air. W^tlworth,.
so Frank says, put his hand toward
his pistol-pocket, and then Frank
aimed and fired. Mr. Wal worth'.stag
gered toward his son, and Frank fired
twice again at him. Air. Wal worth
at last grasped his son desperately,
and the sou fired a fourth shot, which
pcii-d rated his father's right temple,
so that ho fell dead upon tho floor:
Frank grasped his coat and hat,
walked Ouc into tho corridor, ami
passing H number of hotel attendants
who had been aroused by the shoot
ing, but who failed'to stop him, walk
ed out of the front door of tho hotel
and Went to the Gilsey house, from
which he sent a telegraphic message.
He then went out again 01 Broad
way, and meeting a policeman from
whom he learned where the Twenty
fifth precinct station house was, went
in front of the desk at the station an d
informed Sergent Muller that he had '
j ust shot his father and had come to j
give himself up, handing his revolver
at the same time to tha Sergeant.
The Sergeant thought he was drunk
or crazy, and asked him what'was
the hi at tei*. and Frank replied, "Fami
ly troubles." He answered the usual'
questions, and his story was confirm-*
cd by the arrival ofa clerk in hot
haste from the Sturtcvant house. An
inquest was held over the. body of
Air. Walworth on the Friday follow
ing, which continued for t>vo d tys,
and resulted in a verdictoi'*diatli
by it pistol-shot at the hands of Krank
H. Walworth " Frank was at once
committed to the. Tombs.
Word had been sent on tho morn
j ing of the murder to his friends, and
his mother arrived in the city by the
afternoon train an?! at once win t t o
see him. Through her 'effoi'lg, assisted
by Judge Harbour* the host, of counsel
were engaged-, Charlys O'Conor, a
long and intimate fVieti I of the fami
ly, being especially engaged to defend
the prisoner. Mr. O'Conor had given
up entirely all connection with crimi
nal cases, but broke his ride here and
enlisted heart and soul in the defense.
The grand jury did not moot for
nearly three weeks, but the case was
presented at the earliest moments of
their session, and an indictment of
murder in the first degree was prompt?
ly found. Frank in the meantime
remained in the Tombs, where he
was constantly visited by his mother
and numerous friends. His demeanor
during this lime was remarkably
quiet ami unconcerned, except during)
the daily visits of his mother, When
at limes he entirely gave way.
On Tuesday, June 24, three weeks
after the m Order, an extra panel of
jurors numbering .'IdO. was summon
ed, and an excited crowd assembled
in the room of the Oycr and Termin?r
Court, to witness the drawing of tho
jurors. The State authorities were
represented by District Attorney 1
I'helps and his assistant, Mr Jlollins,
iigninst whom were arrayed, on the
part of the defense, hh imp l-ung list
of connse] 1 consisting of Charles
O-Goiior, ox-District Attorney Gnl
vin, Win. A. P.each, Nelson Chase
(df Ho wo 11 Jumel fame") and Gen.1'
Henry R Davics. Of the 300 jurors
only 138 appeared, oi nbich twenty
were excused by the presiding judge,
Noah Davis,, the delinquents being
fined $250. The impaneling of the
jury went over to tho fid low tug day,
when the full, true and lawful twelve
were obtained. The trial was begun
a day later, (Wednesday, June 25,)
and at the close of the sitting the
prosecution had finished their case,
and Mr. Ibach hail made the open
ing a hl res s for tho defense. Mr.
1 ?euch's line of argunioiil was the
domestic troubles of the family, the
reckless character of the father, his
ill-treatment of the mother, and in
sults to mot her and son. The defense
lasted for six days, the one plea of
cruelty and wrong-dealing to the
mother, and its ellecls ou the sou
brought up solely under her care, be
ing urged in every possible form.
Tho dourt-room was filled each day
On the .afternoon of July 1, Mr.
O'Conor began his summing up.
finishing his masterly argument late
in the. evening. The day following
Mr. Phelps summed up for the prose
cution, Judge Davis delivered his
charge?to which Mr. O'Conor took
several exceptions ? ami at 5:25 the
jury retired. Three hours later they
announced they ' ad agreed upon a
verdict The utmost si'once prevail
ed as the foreman announced that
Frank H. Walworth was guilty of
'murder in the second degree. At Mr.
O'Conor's request tho sentence was
deferred until ihn Saturday follow
ing, when Judge Davis pronounced
il?imprisonment at hard labor fur
life. Walworth took his sentence
quietly, and the following week was
