HANG ING OF k HAN
Mrs. Meeker Executed in a Vermont
Execution or a Boy at I.ccnbnrg,
Ilanglne Uk South Carolina.
Windson, Vt., March 30. Mrs. Emeline
Meeker was hanged in the Penitentiary
here to-day for the murder of littlo Alice
Mocker, aged fourteen years, in 1880. The
victim ef the tragedy was an orphaned
girl named Meeker, and the alleged murderers
were Almon Meeker and' Emeline
Meeker, mother and son. The Meekers
were poor farming folks, who lived on the
outskirts of the village of Waterbury.
Mrs. Meeker was of a sullenmorose nature,
nnd could not tolerate children in her
Her son Almon was uncouth, and possessed
littlo learning. The old lady was
extremely deaf, 'whilo the boy's faculties
were quite dull. It was in this household
that Alice Meeker, a half-sister of E. C.
Meeker, husband of Emiline Meeker, was
sent to live from the poor-farm o f Charlotte,
in 1879. She was the object of abuse
nnd hatred from the time of her entrance
under tho Meeker roof. One night, after
Alice had gone to bed, she was seized and
roughly dressed in a calico gown, and a
sack tied over her head.
She was then -carried by her murderers
to a wagon, driven lor"mims along a lonely
road, and finally forced to drink a dose of
strychnine disguised in sweetened water.
The body waq buried in a swamp. When
Mrs. Meeker ond Abmon, were arrested the
latter confessed tho, crime, and at the fall
term of the' Washington county eourt
pleaded guilty to miliar in the.firstdgree,
and was sentenced to be hung on the second
Friday in February, 1882. Owing to mitigating
circumstances his sentence was commuted
to life imprisonment. Emiline
Meeker pleaded' not euiltv. A lurr was
impanneled, and the trial proceeded, lasting
ten days, ,
The prisoner's counsel demanded separate
trials, but Judge Bedfield overruled the
claim and required both respondents to, be
tried together. Tho trial lasted ten days,
and the jury, after being qui two, hours,
came Into Court and rendered a verdict of
guilty of murder iu the first degree against
Mrs. Meeker. The sentence of the Court
was that she be confined in the State prison
at Windsor, the last three months to be
passed in solitary confinement, aud there
be hanged by the neok till dead.
Her final interview with her son Almon
took place last night. They shook hands,
the mother showing slight excitement. She
claimed it is all ful.se, and Aluiou's lies
brought her to her present position, and de-
maiidcd why he did so. She admitted she
could tell a good story, but claimed that
justice should ho meted to all. She said
all the J'uuiily hated Alice and had whipped
her severely. Almon asked her if she
had not asked him to take (he child to the
mountains to starve. She laughed, saying
hIio never thought of such a thing. During
the interview, which bmed oer an hour,
!io showed great resolution. .iriji

Indianapolis, March 30. A fiendish attempt
to poison, which was more wide-
sprcadjjin action though fortunntely not so
serious in its results, than the author intended,
was mado in West Indianapolis last
night. Mrs. Deschler found hanging to
the knob of her front door a package addressed
to L. Forger. He is a son by a former
marriago, and does not live with his
mother. Sho opened the package, however,
aud found an assortment of confectioner's
cake, oranges, colored eggs and Easter
cards, the whole, from Its nature, appearing
to bo an Easter offering. In the house"
were Mrs. Deschler, her son Willie Forger,
and two little children namod Breahm, who
lived in the neighborhood of Crown Hill,
and who were visiting tho family. Mrs,
Deschler called on Mrs. Dr. Parsons,, a
neighbor, and her two year old child, and
tboy 'all ate of the contents of the box.
Presently all began to grow ill and to
vomit, each being attacked with severe
pains. Mrs. Parsons called bor husband,
who at once, detected symptoms of poisoning
by phosphorus, nnd. sultablo remedies
were at once administered, and to-day all
the victims of tho outrage nro bolieved to
ho out of duugor, although tho ladies are
still very ill. They suffered intensely dur
ing the night, aud It is evident that tho
lives of tho huHci era were only saved by,
tho t'nct that they ate so much of the
horribly poisoned cake as to cause their
Btomachs to reject it.
About six weeks ago Mrs, Deschler was
divorced from her husband, Chris. Deschler,
who is employed at tho Ma.Uoablo Iron
Works. She says she was dvorocd from
htm because she could no longer livo with
him on account of his conduct toward her.
This- evening' the offiders arrested1 Chris'.
Desohler oa suspicion' of being concerned in1
the outrage, but he vehemently denies any
knowledge of it whatever.
