THE HOCK ISLAND AUG US, TUESDAY, MAY 27. Ih90.
Apparently It Brought Swift
Disaster to Her Enemies.
THE MANHATTAN WELL MURDER.
A Miscarriage of Justice Followed by
Fatality of Some Sort to Nearly All
Those Responsible God's Vengeance
Invoked by Quakeress In Court.
Copyright, 1890, by American Proas Association.
An atrocious crime was committal in
New York city the other evening. A printer
named Jackson entered a saloon, cut the
throat of the girl who loved him And had
sacrificed all for Lis sake, eluded the grasp
of a policeman and, cloaked by the dark
ness, escaped arrest. The woman died In a
few moment. The man disappeared, leav
ing no clew behind, and it was days before
the authorities obtained even an inkling to
THE 8CF.NK OF THE MrRPER.
The taking of human life in any unlaw
ful manner is naturally regarded as the
greatext of all crimes. Others, that need
not here le specified, are perhaps more re
volting and worthy of nearly as severe pun
ishment, bnt murder stands out alone as
tbe most hideous thing for which person
can be held responsible.
Yet, strange to day, the full severity of
the law is visited upon less than 25 per
cent, of the fiends who shed the blood of
innocent victims. Some evade not only ar
rest, but even suspicion, others find the
machinery of the courts exactly suited to
their wishes for acquittal or a light sen
tence, and the few who reach the gallows
are generally those whose guilt is counled
wit h unusually shocking detuils and whose
pocket are not well filled enough to meet
the demands of able but high priced coun
sel. Still it can hardly be said that the assas
sin who walks from a court room a free
man, "vindicated"' by a verdict of not
guilty, is beyond the reach of punishment.
There remains the sting of a guilty con
science; popular opinion may not be at one
with the finding of the jury, and there is
always the vague, haunting fear 'hat a
higher power will sooner or later rectify
the error of a human tribunal. Catherine
Ring believed thoroughly in the righteous
vengeance of God when she stood up in the
old city hull of New York late one uight
ninety years ago last spring, and, shaking
her finger at the judges, the jury, the de-
lenduut and the lawyers, cried with indig
nant fury: "I call upon lto Almighty to
curse you all, and he will do it."
Who was Catherine King, and what the
occasion of her wrath?
She was a Quaker woman, whose fair
young relative Lad been murdered on the
evening of the day she expected to become
a wife. The Rings, Ehas and Catherine,
lived on Greenwich street, near Franklin.
With them resided their cousin, Guliclma
Elmore Sands, a beautiful girl just bud
ding into womanhood. Elnia, as she was
called, had several suitors, but gave her
preference to Levi Weekes, a wealthy
builder and owner of the City hotel. How
far she trusted to the honor of her be
trothed will never be known, but one thing
is certain, when he suggested a secret mar
riage she gladly assented, and Dec. 22,
lTUtt, was set as the date for the ceremony.
Weekes insisted upon the most absolute
privacy, but when the wedding morn ar
rived Eima confided her prospects to her
The day seemed one long shriek of win
ter and of storm, and in the darkness of
early night the frost king grew even more
fierce and bitter in his fury. The snow
swept about in blinding eddies. The wind,
rushing down from the sound, howled over
Manhattan Island, while the piercing cold
joined hands with these to complete the
trinity of the tempest. Bnt when the clock
on St. Paul's struck 8 and jingling sleigh
bells ceased their music before her door.
Miss Sands bade her friends good-by and
stepped out, confident of a speedy return
as the wife of her lover. The watchers
within waited her home coming, bnt they
waited in vain. Three hours later Weekes
entered alone. What followed is best told
in the language Catherine Ring:
"The moment he entered I cast my eyes
upon h!?n. Ilia countenance was pale and
much agitated. lie sat down and said, 'Is
Elmagone to bed? I answered 'No; she
has gone out. At least I saw her ready to
go, and have good reason to think she
went.' He said: 'I am surprised she should
go out so late at night and alone.' I re
plied: 'I have no reason to think she went
the old crrr hall.
alone,' to which he made no reply, bnt
looked earnest and thoughtful and leaned
down his head on his hand. I continued:
'Indeed, Levi, to tell thee the truth, I be
lieve she went with thee. She told me she
was to, and I have good reason to think
be did.' "
Then Mrs. Ring declared that she was
aware of the intended marriage, and
Weekes burst out: "I'm ruined! I'm ru
lnedl I'm undone forever! Unless she ap
pears to clear me my existence will be only
Day succeeded day without bringing
" trace Tf the missing girl, until on Jan. 2,
1800, a systematic search, begun some time
previously, resulted in the discovery of
Miss Sand's corpse in Manhattan well.
This well stood in what was then the Lis
penard meadows, and still exists at 89)1
Greene street, although its uncanny depths
are concealed from view by the flooring of
a carpenter shop. The body when found
wes without bat, shawl or shoes. The
dress the poor thing's wedding gown
WM torn open above the waist. There
warn bruises and scratches on the face and
breast and the marks of encircling fingers
about the throat; also a dislocation of the
Naturally suspicion attached to Levi
Weekes. He was indicted by the grand
jury, and his trial began March 81, 1S0O, in
the old city hall, at the corner of Wall and
Nassau streets. Chief Justice Lansing,
Mayor Richard Varick and Recorder Rich
ard Harrison sat upon the bench. Cad
waliader D. Colden, assistant attorney
general, represented the state. Alexander
. Hamilton, Brock hoist Livingstone and
Aaron Burr appeared as counsel for
Weekes. It was proven that the prisoner
had been absent from his brother's house
with a horse and sleigh on the night of tbe
murder between the hours of 8 and 9. The
prosecution established the existence of '
Bleigh atid horsetracks, btentjcai with those
Weekes' outfit would have "made, near the
well, which stood some distance from the
country road. In fact, what might be
called a strong circumstantial case was
made out against the accused.
Court sat continuously, and the speeches
of counsel followed at once on the dosing
of the evidence. At 2:30 on the morning of
the third day of the trial Mr. Colden
begged an adjournment, Baying he was ex
hausted. His request being refused, he
submitted his side without argument.
Judge Lansing charged the jury that there
was no evidence to warrant the conviction
of the defendant, and an acquittal natur
ally followed at once. It was now twenty
minutes of 3 in the morning. Tbe fagged
out participants in the long legal battle
were preparing to go home, when the soli
tary woman present swept forward. In
her dress of gray she looked weird beneath
the light of the flickering candles. To
Hamilton, who had- called the dead girl
unchaste, she directed her first remark:
"If thee dies a natural death I shall think
there is no justice in heaven." Then her
pent up anger burst forth in a flame of
fury against the rest, and while the awe
struck throng stood silent and aghast she
voiced t hat terrible appeal for vengeance:
"I call upon the Almighty to curse you
all, and be will do it."
The record of the sulisequent years, so
far as known, is this:
Weekes, the day after Ids release, re
ceived a pressing invitation from a citizens'
committee to leave town and never come
back. -He departed, and on his journey
southward was waylaid, killed and robbed.
Alexander Hamilton fell by the hand of
Burr in a duel the details of which are
matters of history.
Aaron Burr lived to see his schemes of
empire fail, and died a disgraced, neglected

day to take tlio Albany boat at the foot of

to the commission of the crime, the people

Cable. May 26. Cable has achieved
an enviable reputation in tie sporting
line. Commencing on the 1 1th inst and
extending over a week ths National
Coursing association held th 5 first tour
nament of the season at St. louia which
was open to, and participated in, by tbe
best bred greyhounds from lennels east
of the Mississippi. We quoti- from the
special report to the American Field uf
tbe issue of May 24:
"We were now down for the final in
both stakes, and as Barmai l and her
kennel companion were called to the
slips after being exhibited before the
crowd, tbe interest had reiched fever
heat. The owners of tbe two dogs, al
though very friendly, were anxious for
the question to be settled as to which was
the superior, they having be t the com
mon cotton-tail rabbit at home, and here
tbey were given a grand opportunity to
test them. The money could be divided,
but the cup could not, so away they
went np the course to the slips."
The miny readers of the A rods will be
gratified to learn that the oaners above
referred to were none other than Q. F.
Haigb, formerly of Coil Valley, and. well
known to many Rock Island rs, who had
in charge Alfred Haigh'g famous grey
hound Nip, and the other, John Rus
sell, of this place, owner of tl e celebrated
Barmaid. The report continues:
"They were given a long slip, which
added much to the thoroughness of the
test. They were also given a strong hare,
and away they went down the stretch
from the quarter pole, passu g under the
wire in race horse fctyle in twenty sec
onds. Barmaid leading by six open
lengths, and still widening the distance
as she reached the hare at tin turn of the
track, fifty yards from the escape, and
drove him to a turn, and then began some
of the prettiest work evet seen on a
coursing ground, almost numberless
poiuts being scored up by ea .in dog. Bar
maid showing best in the exchanges, but
at times Nip would slio v a grand
reserve dash that seemed almost im
possible for so large a doa; yet the work
was telling on him, and the Inst two turns
were made with labored force. Barmaid
scored the kill and won this course, Ihe
big fellow going down bef re his more
active and much lighter sist r. Both are
good ones and the owner) should lie
proud of possessing two such grand
coursing greyhounds. Nip fought brave
ly for first place and won every course to
the nnal on mprit. He sho ws great res
olution in running. He is a blue with
strong white markings, will weigh about
