THE INDIANA STATE SENTINEL, TUESDAY JANUARY 5. 187Ö,
BLOOD FOR BLOOD.
AN OHIO CRIMINAL.
LITE HE LIVED THE HORRIBLK MCR-
DER FOR WHICH HK WAS CONVICT KD
TORT OF THE BLOODY DEED HM KXPIA
TIOH Or THE CRIME.
The telegraph has told in an Item of the
execution of John Goodman at Ottawa, O.,
on Wednesday last. The correspondent of
the Cincinnati Enquirer, writing from that
place, gives tbe following sketch of the
criminal's life, and the deed for which be
was executed: Goodman, the condemned
man, made his confession. He was born la
Franklin county, about four miles south
east ef Columbus, in 1843. When be was
bat four years old his parents moved to
Putnam county, In the neighborhood where
Columbus (J rove now stand, where bis fa
ther bought a firm and settled. lie worked
on the farm, getting his education as most
farmers' boys do, in the winter months of
the year, until he was ot ape. Soon after
that he married a Miss Funk, who had
lived with old Mr. and Mrs. Hay
wood lor several years a a sort
of foster child, though she was never
adopted by them. Af er marrying
her he tried farming for a year or two, but
dfdn't get along. Tnen he went back to his
father's bouse and stayed there a while, but
that didn't suit hitn because of the work.
Then he went to Columbus Grove, lie tried
.various makeshifts to eet out of actual work j
and make a living, lie tried to sell fruit-j
trees for a while, but didn't succeed. Then
be got an agency for a washing
machine, but tht didn't bring in auy
money to ppe-ik of, and as the ex
penses of living began 10 pre 9 him, with no
money coming in, he became mores and
dissatisfied, llenad some misunderstand
ings, too, with bis wife, and she upbraided
him for being a lazy, do-nothing fellow.
Then he threatened to "cut her wind off" if
she ever talked to him that way again, and
on this 8th of April, the black Friday of his
existence, they parted. But mind you. in all
this time he had never shown any of the in
troductory vices that lead to
crime, lie set at defiance all your theories
In this respect, lie didn't drink, he didn't
gamble, he did n't swear, he didn't steal or
fie or cheat, but he was simply a lazy,
trifling, do-nothing bulk of a fellow, with
out energy enough to make a living for his
wife and child, lie was simply a cipher in
society. People who knew him said that
WHEN HE GREW ANGRY
he would tea every thing before him to
gratify bis vengeance, though this last
statement probably had its origin in the
light of subsequent events rather than from
any experience they bad bad with him be
fore. At any rate be was very trifling and
very much in need of money; and he
knew old man Haywood, and knew
also that be had money. This was the
condition of affairs on the 8th -of
April. On the forenoon of that day be bor
rowed a rifle there in town, saying that be
was going out squirrel hunting in the neigh
borhood of old man Haywood's, lie bought
powder and percussion caps and lead to
make bullets from. Then he went down to
a caw-mill below town and molded his
bullets, and struck out into the woods. At
4 o'clock he arrived at the house of old man
Haywood with a squirrel which he had
killed in his hand, giving it to the old lady
to cook for supper. During the conversa
tion which ensued he aked them to loan
him some money, and they refused. High
words followed this refusal, all three of them
growing angry. Then he made a show of
curbing his passion, and proposed to the
old man tbat he should go down
three or . four hundred yards below
on the bank of the creek and
help him kill another squirrel that he had
seen as he came along, the old man's part of
the joo being to go around behind the tree
and scare It out, when he was to shoot it.
Tbe old man led the way, perhaps ten yards
in advance, and as they got behind the
slope of tbe bank of the creek, Goodman

and coming out at the other side. He fell
ead in a moment, and Goodman, rushing
forward, commenced to rifle his pockets of
his watch, bis pocket-book, his knife, and
whatever else they contained, and, while so
engaged, he became alarmed. It seems that
Mrs. Haywood bad beard tbe shot fired,
and, fearing that foul play was going on,
had hurriei aut toward tbe barn, and climb
ing to tbe top of the fence so tbat
she could overlook tbe pcene Just
as he waa robbing the low dead
old man. 8 be screamed, and he looked
up in time to see her standing on the fence.
His crime bad a witness, and his first
thought was to make away with that wit
ness. Seising his gun he started after her,
loading as be ran, and with the knife still
in his bands. The old lady started to run
to tne nearest neighbors, runck's, some
25 or 30 rods away from tbe house, and just
across tne road. Goodman lollowed, rap
' idly gaining on her, and before she had
reacned the road be fired at her and she fell
to the ground. Then he rnshed up, and
with tbe open knife in bis hand

nis fiendish work was all complete, aud
had been done in 15 or 20 minutes at the
most. Tbe old man and his old wife were
both dead, and tbe next thing wss to dis
pose of their bodies. He first dragged tbe
old lady's body down tbe side of tbe bill to
the creek.where he tumbled it into the water
and piled some brush and stones on it. Then
he went baca to where tbe old man's
body lay, and stripping it to the waist, leav
ing only the pants and boots on, rolled it
down the bank into the water, and piled logs
and stones enough oyer it to entirely conceal
It irom view. Then he took the clothes up
to tbe house and put them away in tbe
closet. While here be left evidences of his
having committed the crime for robbery by
breaking open the trunks and bureiu
drawers and emptying their contents
on the floor in the search for money,
lie rummaged all over the house,
but succeeded in finding little if any
money, there only being some twenty-five
or thirty dollars on him when arrested.
But it seems that while engaged in this
search for money he suddenly began to fear
that bis crime had been seen. His
gun had been fired twioe and the dogs
bad barked, and it occurred to bim that
there wen) neighbors near at hand. Ha. re
membered tbat he had seen Mrs. Funk about
tbe time be was cutting the old woman's
throat or, at least, he thought he had and
tbe thing with him was how to conceal his
crime. Mr. Funk was his wife's brother,
and, after thinking it over a few minute,
he concluded tbat the best way was to tell
them the bloody story and swear them to
keep bis secret. Bo he went across the
road to Fuck's house and told first Mrs.
Fnnk and afterward her husband, when be
IHK WHOLE HORRIBLK STORY.
And her bis co'.d blooded craftiness
came la. After telling them and
conjuring them to keep bis secret,
he advised tbem (o take a trip to the
, west until the thing should blow over, alleg
ing as a reason tbm they wouldn't tlieu b
called upon to tell his secret. His real plan,
however, was to get them to leave suddenly.
and then have the orime fastened upon ibeui.
wiin a stronzcuaio or circumstantial evi
dence pointing to their guilt. To have bronght
niem rack would bave been tbe next
move an an almost oertain convictin
would have awaited one or both. But they
declined to go away, and declined also to
keep his secret. Tbat same night they made
oath before a justice, charging him with the
muruer, and tne next morning ne was ar
rested and taken out to tbe scene of the
crime, and while there he confessed to hav
ing committed it. He was committed to
jail, changed with murder in the first degree,
and in the September term of court was in
dicted, tried and sentenced, tbe fury
belog out only about ten minutes.
On tbe 22i of September he was
sentenced to be hung. Sometime in July
last he and his fellow prisoners made up a
plot to gain their liberty. They were to
knock down tbe sheriff when he unlocked
tbe door to give tbem their dinner, and then
break out at tbe door and escape to tbe roaa
before an alarm was raised. The plot suc
ceeded very well in all respects except one.
That was that while tbe rest of tbem got
away Goodman was recaptured belore be
bad got a half mile from tbe Jail, bince
then he has been very docile and quiet.
A special to the Enquirer from Ottawa, on
the30;h, the day of execution, gives the fol
lowing account of tbat act: Goodman, tbe
condemned man, slept soundly last night,
havings gone to bed at 10 and not awaking
until 4:30. He bad refused to eat any
supper, but just before retiring he ate some
fruit and an apple pie, and aiterwara
smoked a couple ot cigars. During tbe
evening bespoke but once, saying, "By this
time to-morrow night I'll be in heaven."
The guards who stayed with him say that
be was not morose, but thoughtful and
serious, a state of mind be has never shown
belore. His spiritual adviser called on him
this morning, and upon being admitted to
his cell had quite
A LONG TALK WITH HIM
on reilzlous subjects, but one tbat lo bis
clerical mind was not sf very satisfactory.
He regards him as a person of no low an or
der of moral sensibilities as to make it ex
tremely difficult to impress him with a
proper sense ol tho magnitude of the crime
and tbe belief in a future state. At an
early hour the crowds of people from
the country began to arrive, speedily
filling up the sidewalks and most of tbe
street in front of tbe court bouse and the
jail. The military was formed in line, both
in tne rear and in irom oi tne jati, wiin nie j
bayonets, and everybody except those
holding tickets to tbe enclosure was kept
out. As the hours passed Dy the cro wd con
tinued to increase, and by 11 o'clock it
was estimated that fully three or four
thousand people were on the streets.
The half-bour strikes. Goodman is to die at
12, and it is now 11:30. The sheriff enters tbe
cell where the prisoner stands ready, dressed
in his suit of black, and finishing his toilet
by drawing on a pair of white glove.
"Your time's about up, John," he says,
and I've come to ask if you'd like to
look at the coffin I got lor you."
The very suggestion seems horrible, but
the poor devil brightens up at the thought.
lie will get a few moments more or lire, and
to look out into tbe free air once more and
into the faces of his fellow-men, even it it
be only to peer into his own coffin. He con
sents, 'and it is arranged tbat be shall be
taken out. While tbey are fretting ready be
calls Major Moore, the lawyer who defended
him. into bis cell and intrusts to bim
thirty dollars In money, the proceeds of his
confession, to be given to his wife, with mes
sage ot love and confidence, and the hope
tbat tbey would meet in heaven, it lacked
twenty minutes of 12 when the procession
arrived in the building that had been erected
for the execution; tbe sheriff, the condemned
and the clergy were leading, and the
doc: ere and lawyers and other gneo-
tators following. Goodman sur
prised every one by walking
firmly and without assistance up tbe steps
of the gallows, and took a seat on one of the
chairs that were eet there. The minister
followed and took the remaining one, at the
same time telling bim if be bad any thing
to say to i nose present be might say it now
lie remained suent though, and the two
knelt in prayer, the minister
in a fervent invocation lor
and tbe condemned man
in frequent . ejaculations of
have pity on me." '"Lord forgive
Christ's sake," "Clod have mercy," and the
like. At the close of this prayer tbe minis
ter shook hands with, bim imploring mercy
and bleesing of God upon bim in his hourof
trial. Haying this be left bim. A moment
later tbe sherifl's wife, Mrs. Sherrard, as
cended tbe steps of the scaffold and bade
farewell to bim. He bade ber bood-bye,
saying that she bad been very good to
him, and expressing tbe hope that he would
meet her In heaven. Iben tbe sheriff as
cended the scaffold and, taking a seat by bis
side, read the death warrant to him, closing
with the appeal, "John Goodman, if yot
have anything to say why the sentence of
aeam snouid not dq executed upon you say
it now." "No, nothing," was bis reply.

HIS DTINO SPEECH.
'ine wreicnea man stood nrmiy aud reso
lutely as tbe sheriff bound bis arms and legs,
firmly as the noose was put around his neck
and the black cap was placed on his head.
His hands were crossed before him and his
fingers toyed with each other as the straps
were bound around him. His quivering
lips, however, and his eyes suffused with
tears told of the mental agony that he was
"John Goodman, if you have anything to
say to those who are here, say it now "
lie commenced, and bis voice broke down
nearly at tbe first word: "My friends, this
is all justly due. I deserve tbe fate tbat I now
bave to meet. I committed tbe crime and I
justly suffer the penalty for it. One word
more, i leei that I'm prepared to
die, and bave a prospect of entering
heaven, where meeting and parting will
be no more." This was all. The black cap
was drawn down over bis eves, and the onlv
sign of life in tbe poor devil were those fing
ers toying with each other more convul- j
slvely than before. The sheriff grasps one
of his hands aod cries in his ear "Farewell.
John," and darts down the steps and pulls
the cord. A short jerk, a quick, sharp crack,
as of bones breaking, tbe drop falls against
the padded frame ot the scaffold under
neath, and tbe poor devil hangs. There
was a sudden shrug of his shoulders, a
twitching Of tbe elbows for a moment, and
the fingers clutched at eich other once more
then all was still. The spectators rose to
their feet, breathless, and tbe woman with
her Babe in her arms pressed forward to get
a closer view ot the horror. The other
women who were present shrank back
horrified. Tbe doctors were called up to feel
the pulse of tbe victim, and determine when
life was extinct. In ten minutes it was
beating at tbe rate of 40 pulsations
to tbe minute, in fifteen minutes it beat but
fourteen, and in Dineteen minutes be was
pronounced dead. His neck had been bro
ken, and bis death straggle was but mo
mentarily. Then he was cut down and put in
tbe coin n and carried out In tbe door-yard
of tbe ail, where a file of soldiers kept guard
over the body, and tbe band of music, agree
ably to a request be bad made, played "Pat
Mailoy" as tuey passed through.
G. P. Putnam's Sous bave secured from
Munich the entire remainder of the edition
of the great "Album of the Passion Play at
Ober-Aunmergau," of which the few copies
tbey received for the last season were 'taken
up quickly. With the fine earbon photo
graphs of Albert (taken during tbe per
formance of the play ), the etchings of iiie
scenery and tbe vivid descriptions ot Mr.
Jackson, the work is thoroughly attractive
and unique. Evening Post.

elastic as it had been for many years. He had
