Henrv Grimmer that be had murdered
Edward Hogan, was hanged in Rock

daugl ter-in-law. The husband of the
murdered woman died recently, and yea

stated that be bad also learned from pri
vate communication that young lleil

learn if there is any foundation for the

no iruth in it. though Mr. Haas
is inclined to believe there is, and there
are o hers in the city who have always
sustained the idea that Heilwagon who
was executed in this city in March, 1882,
was he victim of an ignomijious plot.
The circumstances attending the crime
for vi bich the old man paid the extreme
penalty of the law, are fixed in the minds
of tie majority of our citizens. In the
fall of '81 Dora Heilwapon was found
murdered in a field near the home of the
Heil vagons on Hampton bluffs. Suspi

The old man's family, however, swore to
