Who Murdered a Man For

Doomed Mau'a Career.
The Crime For Which the Law Claimed
Such Awful Retribution The Pris
Glad It's Ovjr.
Chicago, III, September 19. Lsaac
Jacobson was banged here at noon to
day for the niurcler of George Bedell
In April last, lit v. Charles Eocrnei
spent last eveulng with the pi Lionet
and culled again this morning. The
execution took place In the eastern
extremity of the main corridor ol the
jail, and was witnessed by several hun
dred poets tors.
A scaffold had been erected at the east
ern extremity of the main corridor. At
noon over four hundred spectators bad as
sembled on the ground floor, the two
ptt lerles being packed to suffocation.
The jury, tweuty four la number, the
Grand Jury of twenty-five more and re
porters, occupied chairs and tables Im
mediately la front of the scaffold. It
was precisely noon when Sheriff Han.
cbett, accompanied by assistants and the
minister, entered the library and In
formed the condemned man that his
time had come. For a moment Jacob
rou's face blunched ut.til it was white as
his hoary head, and a tremor went
through his tody. Then, mustering up
his courage, he intimated by a motion of
the hand that he was ready, and the
procession moved to the gallows. Here
the prisoner seated himself, in a cbalr di
rectly under the tfoose while the miulster
proceeded to read the burial service of
tlie Lutheran Church.
It was evident that Jacobson was
making extraordinary efforts to uiai;.Uiu
his self-control, as he c.usped his bands
tlnhtiy together, shutting bis lipi and
looking upward In mute fruppllcatiun.
buddenly, just as the minister hal
reached the words, "Lord, onto thy
bauds we commend this man," the sun
bur.t brightly through the window over
the prisoner's head and a robiu, parched
on the bars, began to warble. The con
demned man looked up at the heavens
through the window, and then a pitiful
look of agony, which compelled even the
stony-hearted jail ollkl ils to tarn away
their heads, settled on bis countenance,
and with a groan the tears welled up In
to his eyes and coursed each other dow.i
hislurrowed cheeks. For a few moments
the sight was a painful one. l'bi;u by a
sttong effort lie regained his composure
and wished the pastor and jail olQciats
As the white cap was about to be ad
justed, he said to the audience: "Good
bye, boys." ' When the noose had been
placed in position he could be heard
through the linen ejaculating, "Lard
help and have mercy upon me."
At 12:06 precisely the drop fell. There
was a momentary twitching of the mus
cles then all was still and the murder
of George Bedell had been avenged.
Chicago, III., September 19. The
crime which Isaac Jacobson expiated was
cold-blooded and atrocious. On Tuesday
morning, Apiil 29, 1834, George Bedell,
proprietor of a carpet cleaning establish
ment at 2C6 North Clarke street, was shot
dead before his store door by Jacobson,
whom he had employed the week pre
vious to beat some carpets, and to whom
ha had paid $3, but who claimed 84 for
the work. Bedell was standing on the
siaewaix. jacooson came walking up
the street. When within a couple
of paces of his victim, he halted
suddenly. No words passed be
tween the two men. Jacobson
clutched a revolver in his right hand.
Deliberately he raised the weapon and
fired into Bedell's face, exclaiming, as a
little girl standing near subsequently tes
tified. "There you are." Bedell reeled
along the pavement a few steps and sank
on the stones dying In a few hours. The
report of the pistol having died away,
Jacobson stood motionless, staring at his
victim and exclaiming, "I did it. I did
The next moment the hand of an officer
who chanced to be passing on a horse
car, was laid upon Jicobson's shoulder,
and he was led away to the police sta
tion. At tha station the prisoner said
that lw had really meant to kill Bedell on
account of the one dollar which he said
was due him. He contented himself by
saying he was "going to the devil any.
The story he then told was that on the
preceding Thursday Bedell had employed
Dim to do a job of carpet-beating or $2
a day. At this he had worked on Friday
and Saturday. Monday he called to get
his pay, and Bedell gave him S3. He de
manded SI more and was refused. Ho
left in anger saying hi would make
Bedell pay dearly for the 81 of wblch he
claimed to have been cheated. Of the
$3 which he received he spent 81 for
lodging and breakfast and the other 83
in a pawn-shop for a pistol with which ha
committed the murder. He said that he
had not been drinking after Monday, and
was not stupefied by liquor at the time oi
the deed. When asked If be knew what)
would be done with him if Bedell died,
Jackson said :
"If he dies ha wlil go to h 1L Then
they'll put a rope around my neck (Imi
tating with his hands the tying of a rope
Bd click I'll go to h 11 alter him. J
dost cre a d n."
Jackson had the appcarauce of a shift,
leas, dls-slpated old man at that time. Ho
was rather tall and stout-built, and had n
shaggy beard of light color, a blistered
nd flushed face, light blue eyes and Jarg
features, tit had no fixed place of resi
dence in Chicago. He had been a sailot
on the lakes uutll the close of naviga
tion, and later worked as a section hand
ou the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad at I
little town ntne miles from south Ctilca
go. Jaokson came to America eleven
years ago, and claimed to have been in
the Russian Navy during the Crimean1
war. He had done carpet-boating fo
Bedell about a year prior to the murder.
On Wednesday, June 18, Jacobson'
counsel made a plea on the ground thai
Banging was brutal and uncivilised, am
the oticemstatioet In this ease were sues
down several times during its delivery,
When it had been announced that It-aac
Jacobson should be hanged, he showed
great emotion. He asked the Judge t
"When is It I am to dleT" The Judge
replied. Then the prisoner twirled bis
little faded cap to his hand, and said :

Turn the lUeoale Out.
Indianapolis, Ikd., September 19.
It has been suspected for a long time that
many Postmasters of Indiana were doing
all lu their power to interfere with the
circulation of Democratic newspapers.
"The Telegraph," a German Democratic
newspaper of this city, hai been espec
ially annoyed lu this respect, and to such
an extent that the proprietors resolved
to put a detective at work to ferret out
the rascals. One of the suspected offl
clais was Alexander 11. Phillips, Post
master at Garrett, DeKalb County.
With the issue of August 30,
the "Telegraph" people sent their
detective to Garrett Post-office and
he swears that the papers went
Into the office, but were never de
livered to the subscribers. After a few
days he disguised himself as a rag-peddler
and went to the Postmaster, telling
him he was buying old newspapers. Post
master Fnlillps fell Into the trap and
turned h'.m out a batch of newspapers
that had never been taken from tbetr
original wraps, and among them thirteen
copies of the TelegrapK of August 30.
The affidavits were prepared and pre
sented to the Federal officer here, and
his arrest was ordered. A United States
Marshal left for Garret last night to ar
rest Phillips. The complaint charges
him with tiie embezzlement of each of
the thirteen papers, wblch carries with it
a flue of fifty dollars and one year's Im
prisonment for each offense.

Prohibitionists, and stLl another that he
is with the Germans. The documents
were distributed yesterday and are being
