A Wood Strong Kopa
Toledo special to the Cincinnati Enquirer,
April 28.h: While tho Waite Jones case
atiain abates in suddenly sensational features,
interest has not abated, and information is
eagerly sought. In all its details it is doubt
less the most extraordinary one on record.
Opinion is pretty well fixed that the -whole
mischief is tbe resale or vicious association,
and shows the danger of allowing youni?
girls to get under the influence of visionary
persons ot their own sex. It is now as plain
as the daylight to all of Dr. Jones's family
that to the young woman whom Waite calls
"Mantia Weeks" is to be traced all the woe
which has befallen them. Through Dr. Jones
himself, to day, your correspondent gathered
considerable information relative to her and
Miss Weeks is tbe daughter of parents who
lived here up to a tew years. They
were Qaaker people, and in business. Mr.
Weeks was a photographer, occupying the
corner of Ojk and Summit streets. In re
ligious views they were ot the free-thinker
sort, and the little circle in which they moved
were Spiritualists. . Relatives by marriage
were the families of J. Secor and the Ben
netts, Calvin and Henry, very wealthy and
influential famiiu s, and also that of David
Ketcham. Mr. Secor and Mr. Ketcha:n are
each the head of large business houses. Man
ila wiu tLc BcooBd t,la. Vlr father sold his
business to a Mr. Alley, and soon atter was
taken fick and died. The family mjved to
Adrian, but soon after returned and went to
live with Mr. Ketcham, who waa Manila's
uacle. Her friet.ds got her a position as
teacher in the city schools, eh9 having been
well educated, and it was while teaching that
her acquaintanca with Ada Jones began.
Two j ears ago her health failed, and ber
uncle, in k.nd generosity, sent Ler eubt tor
her health, and the, through friends, came
under the professional care of
who hves ia Jersey City, and who was the
physician of the circle in which ebe resided.
This circle were all Spiritualists, and Dr.
Bowen the shining head. Another was a
MifS Hotchkiss, who was a fanatic in that
faith, and believed in human perfection, and
a life without hid, as expounded, it is said, by
Bowen. Miss Weeks'a letters to Toledo
talked strangely of the same (tuff. Some of
the Brooklyn people were relatives of the
Ketchams and tbe Bennetts, which accounts
fcr Mantia's oing there. Finally, the Tole
do relatives were astonished by letters from
Miss Hotchkiss, speaking of Mantia as tbe
and the like, indicating an astonishing state
of aiijura. They at oace sent for her to como
borne, and on her arrival found her crazy
upon the notion indicated. Inquiry proved
that Bowen was at the bottom of all the mis
chief; that he had been operating with a
number of girls, amojg them Miss Weeks,
and had brought them to believe in a new
era of good will, fr?e love, Spiritualism, etc.,
the kuding idea ot which was that he should
be the head of a new spirituality, and that
the "Bitsstd Mother" should bear by him
The friends at once secured admisoion for
ber to the Northwestern insane asylum here.
She did not rapidly mend, and the Columbus
asylum being opened about that time, Mr.
Secor, who was a director in the institution,
had her transferred there. Miss Jones, in
spite of fcer r areuts who, however, did not
seem to be fully aware ot the real situation
followed the bend of her ideas received from
Miss Weeks. Her father observed she
grasped eageily atter reading matter of the
kind, and one time discovered she was closely
reading Plato's works. Sho also read almost
constantly of highly romar.tic and sensational
novels, tor which her tnir.t seemed insatiate.
At last
She was at once sent to tbe Columbus asy
lum, and so got egain iuto the closest mti
macy with the Weeks woman. This seems
to have been an oversight on the part of the
Toledo friends, cr else they relied on the
management of the institution to know what
was best for all tbe patients. Not long atter
a letter of Ada's (to her father) was received,
so filled with her theme and so extravagant
in ber expressions toward MifS W eeka, whom
she called "blessed mother," e . ut tno
doctor became alarmed and went to see about
it, however delaying a day or two until the
meeting ot tbe btat medical association, ot
wlich he is a member. In the meantime,
Miss Wetks, whose theory was that she was
cou fined in persecution against the boly head
of the new church, conceived a cunning and
t ie inmates contributing the money to the
amount of fifty dollars, and Miss Jones head
iug the list with a good sum. The escape
does not eeem creditable to the efficiency of
the institution at the time. Tbe Toledo rela
tives made diligent search for the escaped
"vngip." Dottctives traced her to Jersey
City, and heard of her being s?en with
liowea, but here lost the trace. Finally, Dr.
Jones intercepted a letter to bis daughter,
beuring the postmark, "Ansonia, Connecti
cut," and signed by Miss Hotchkiss. It bore
tbe "j'oyoui tidings" that the "Blessed
Mother of the Blessed Child was safe in An
sonia." "Blessed Child" is supposed to mean
tlio child expected, s there is no information
that any child has yet been born as a result
of the
which has now covered a considerable pe
riod. All the information touching Bowen
puts him in tho light of a designing liber
tine among tbe girls of tho Brooklyn circle.
He has a wifo, who seems to know too much
of him to believe in his religious sincerity,
as sh became very jealous of him at tbe
time of Mantia's first arrival in Brooklyn,
and on her arrival in Jersey City, on her es
cape, Mrs. Bowen made a disturbance and
began efforts for a divorce. The Toledo
friends now despaired of doing anything tor
poor Mactia, and she has sinco been living
from place to plaoe among New YorK Spirit
ualistic sects, including those at Saratoga,
Port Edwards and Ulen Falls. Duriug last
season she was one of a number of Spiritual
ists who occupied a cottage at Saratoga,
where, . supposed under Bowen 's manage
ment, they illustiated
Sheridan Waite's connection with the af
far began abiut tbe tiuo of Mautia's first
t-ip to Brooklyn. He chanuea to go to tee
Hot'-hkiss place at the same time for his
health, and was also treated by the same Dr.
Bowen, and became at once very intimate
?ith Miss Weeks. He visited her at Colum
bus asylum, aud there met Miss Jones, into
whose uncertain mind if'i Weeks poured
his most extravagant praises, d8Mibing him
as scmethinar crod-l:ke and superhuman. In
this way was the poor girl well prepared to
ba infatuated with him in tbe sudden and
rouiantw events which followed. Such is the
history of a principal in what must be one ot
the strangest cases in medical jurisprudence.
If the situation of Miss Jones declared
to be
married to a man she shall never see if her
friends prevail is sad. what shall be said of
Mantia Weeks, with virtue, or at least good
nnme, gone with her reason, and not even
the sanctity of marriage to cover the multi
tude of Bins, the world will see her awful
niihfoi'tune can only be uieaeured by those
who knew her. She was a beautiful girl, with
a biiht, frank, optn countenance, large, lov
ing eyes and attractive form and figure.
There was a sweetness in ber face often re
marked as almost spiritual. Surely, death
loves a shining mark, whether it be moral or
mortal distinction.

The Jury Organized and tbe Trial Be

the flea of Conspiracy to
Kill Cox.
Atlanta, Ga., April 30. The jury was
completed to day in tne Cox-AUton case, and
the trial commenced. A part of tbe line or
defence will be an effort .to establish a con
spiracy to kill Cox, and prove that Murphy
furnished Alston with a pistol; that Murphy
and Howard during tbe fight were concealed
in a dark room of the treasury office, coming
out immediately after, and Murphy securing
the pistol used by Alston, and that Howard
abked at once that nothing be saij about
their being in sid room. The theory of the
dtfense is that Cox was hunting Murphy ou
leaf e business, and not Alston ; that Alston
drew and fired without any demonstration
from Cox to warrant an attack, and thit
Cox was fortunate in caving his own life by
taking Alston's in self-defense. Important
aud unexpected testimony is looked fcr to

curred in the United States court-room, re

denied, and upon Mr. Mayer repeating the
assertion General Walker told him be lied,
whereupon Mr. Mayer seized a glass near at

friends. General Walker hurled au inkstand
at Mr. Mayer, striking him but doing him
only eiitfht injury. Judge Bruco promptly

St. Louis Republican, 28th: "J.H.Don
aldson, a singer widely known in western
towns as conductor of musical conventions,
was arrested at Washington Courthouse to
day on tbe charge of seducing a thirteen-
vfar-old daughter ot a ptoruinent r-uizen ot

was walking iu the outskirts of the city and
persuaded ber to continue her walk with him
into a piece of woods. Three young boys
who were near saw them, but fearing trouble
said nothing until Friday eveniug when tbey
told the girl's brother. Last night she was
questioned about it and made a confession to
her mother that Donaldson had seduced her.
The news Boon leaked out and created great
excitement uptown, Donaldson denied it,
and offered fifty dollars to any one who
would bring him face to face with bis ac
cuser. An appointment was made, but the
singer did not meet it. He had taken flight.
He was followed by the girl's brother and
cfficeis, aud after twenty-four hours pursuit
by rail and across the country, he was found
at Washington, the capital of Fayette county.
Us confessed his crime, and said be would
make every reparation iu his power if the
Xenia people wou'd not lynch him. He was
taken back to Xenia to-night. Feeling there
is very strong against him.

The opinion is to the effect that the grant un

further, that the city of Frankfort was by act
authorized to raise one hundred thousand

baa not been exhausted, and tnat Simmons,

At the commencement of to day's prcceed
iecrs. a strict iri inction of secrecy was im-
DOed noon all the members, but this was
subsequently removed to the extent of per
mitting the publica'ion ot the conclusions
reached by tee caucus.
The National Greenbackers of the house
aleo held a caucus of three hours duration to
day on the subject ot the Presidential veto.
A general interchange ot views occurred.
but no definite action was reached as to what
course they should pursue. Information ob
tained from a trustworthy source iudicates
that the meeting was not altogether har
monious, there being a great diversity of
opinion existing as to the proper steps to be
taken, and in the course of the debate the
fact was developed that the National party
will not stand as a unit on the question when
it comes before the house, but will divide,
some sustaining the veto, others opposing it,
and the third faction refraining from voting
ither way.

Case Terminates with the Liberal
Meateaee of Seven Years Imprison,
nient for the Uanatural Parent,
he Pleadlnjs Guilty as
Charged with Incest
with his Own
Cincinnati Enquirer, 29th: Frederick Ich
bauci, who waa indicted by the last grand
jury fcr incest with his daughter, Elizabeth
ichbaum, in the eastern part of the city on
on the sixth of May last, was yesterday
brought before Judge Johnston, of the court
of common pleas, and withdrew the plea of
not guilty, which he put in when arraigned,
and pleaded guilty to the indictment. He
was represented by Judge Lindemann and
Colonel Bond. The former, speaking on be
half of the prisoner, said:
Your honor has seen fit to appoint Colonel
Bond and myself to defend this prisoner.
Both of us were satisfied that it would be
improper on our part to go before a jury
without at least a tangible theory of this
ease. We have used every means to ascer
tain whether we could make a defense or not.
W e have examined the prisoner and his
daughter, and have come to the conclusion
that there is no defense in the case. Feel
ing that a history of this man would possibly
enable you to look upon this crime witn
6ome leniency, I will state it: "He was
born in L?ngelos, in the canton of Metz,
Lorraine, France, and, whe i twelve years of
age, removed to Canada. In the following
year bis parents died, throwing him upon his
own resources, with neither means nor edu
cation i After remaining a short time in
Canada, he went to Buffalo, New York, and
lived upon a farm eif ht years. Subsequently
he came to Cincinnati, and married bis wife
in thvv;Uage from where be was taken to
jail. The lamily lived together in circum
stances so po r that the children were unable
to attend school. The girl with whom the
crime is allege-' to have been committed is
the oldest of the six children. She is now
eighteen years of age, and has no education
whatever. Tbe family all slept in one room, and
since the mother's death, three years ago, no
change has been made. This was an unfor
tunate circumstance. Had the family ar
rangements been different, it is probable that
the defendant would not have been a prisoner
hereto-day. "The man frequently indulged
in drink, and the daughter admitted that, at
the first commission of this wrong, she de
tected liquor upon his breath. It is well
known that surrounding circumstances have
a powerful influence upon a person's actions,
and we think the surroundings of this man
some extenuation of bis conduct. Colonel
Bond and myself thought that it would not
be right to put the county to the expense of a
triil of the case. We have come to the con
clusion that he is guilty of the crime, and
ojnsidered it to be our du'y only to make a
fair statement of the case to the court, and to
leave the prisoner to your honor's mercy."
Colonel B -ul remarked that the legisla
ture of the Stite had, ia its wisdom, vested
a wise discretion in the court, and said you
may sentence this man to one year in the
penitentiary or ten. There is pothmg left
us in this cae but to appeal to that mercy
which was lodged in the breast of the court
by the legislature. Judge liindeman has
given you the history of this man. Remem
berinsr that fatherless and motherless, poor
and uneducated, he was drifting upon the
ocean of life, and knowing th -t the legisla
ture has said that you may sentence him to
serve a term of one year or ten years, I ask
yoar honor to exercise tne leniency toward
this unfortunate man wnicn you are given
the power to exercise.
Tt was stated that four of the children are
living, the daughter being in the county in
firmary, and tne Qiaest acq, agea tmrceen, is
living with Dr. Gaines in California; the
other two eons, aged ten and six years, aiso
residing in the town.
The prosecutor, air. urew, stated that ne
had conversed with the prisoner's neighbors
in reference to the case, and had learned that
Mr. Ichbaum was a hard working man, but
that he sometimes indulged too freely in
drink. Nothing very unfavorable was said
of him, except concerning the present charge
against bim. Ihe defendant s boys, who
were before the grand jury, were very bright,
and bad been sent to school considerably
more than the girl. The daughter is in the
county mfirmaiy. in confinement with her
father s child. Mr. Urew stated that he had
conversed with the daughter about the
charge made against her father, and she said
that the first criminal act between them was
done under her father's compulsion, and that
since that time she had lived with him for
two years in the relation of a wife.
I he prisoner, upon the interrogation ot the
court, stated that ho had nothing to say in
his own behalf. The court proceeded to pro
nounce sentence upon bim, saying that the
crime is n moat grievous one. The offense
was ot such a revolting nature that it would
eeem that no human being could become so
degraded as to commit sach an offense,
Beasts of the field commingle their blood,
for they do not kuow any better; but this is
a case of a human being, who, for two years,
bad carnal intercourse with his own daugh
ter, and she is nowbearing upon ber breast a
child, tho fruit of that intercourse. She is
equally as guilty as her father, but perhaps
her tender years at the time illict intercourse
commenced are a protection in some respect
tor ner. ine case acinus ot but very few
extenuating circumstances, perhaps of but
one, and that is the checkered course of the
prisoner's lite. This, in connection with
passion, perhaps, is the only extenuat
ing circumstance ofiered here. The
court at fars5 felt that the daughter
neeaea a protector, and tor that reason
felt that a short sentence should ba sriven:
but, judging of the future from the past, she
would need piotection from the prisoner. She
has been unable to protect herself against the
prisoner's lust. She is of age and able to
protect herself. Fortunately, perhaps, the
rest of the prisoner's children are males, and
it is a pleasure to know that some of them
are well provided for, and it is to be hoped
that the other children will be equally pro
vided for by a generous community. I feel
that it would be but an act of justice that
while not the full nenaltv of tho law. which
is ten years, should be enforced, the prisoner
should be confined long enough to enable
these children to get beyond tho reach of his
inUaence and partially forget the offense. It
ia the j'odgment of the court that the prisoner
be confined ia the penitentiary lor seven
The prisoner waa then removed to the
county jail.
