Man Who Hanged the "Haymarket"
Rioters Dies in Iowa.
MASON CITY, la., June 24.?D. W.
Nickerson, the man who hanged the
Haymarket rioters in Chicago, was found
dead in his bed at hi? Floyd home, near
here. One of the strange coincidences
in connection with this death, caused
from apoplexy, is the fact that both
Sheriff S. F. Hanchett. who was at that
time sheriff of Cook county, and W. H.
Gleason, who was the chief clerk, both
came to this cotinty and both died very
suddenly from the same cause, and with
in three days of each other. This was
about three years aeo.
Mr. Nickerson never spent a day with
out thinking of this affair. He left Chi
cago in 1002 and came to the prairies of
the west, where' he thought he could
bury his hauntings. But he was in con
stant receipt of letters from anarchists
threatening his life, and he was literally
hounded to his death.
At the time of the Haymarket riots in
that city hie was acting as deputy sheriff,
and in performing his duty in that ca
pacity was executioner for those who
paid the penalty, for the uprising, on the
scaffold.. Since that time he has been a
marked man.
Mr. Nickerson was a genial, affable
man. and made triends of the entire
community. By many lie was regarded
as an artistocrat because of his refined
ways, which through many years of resi
lience in the city had become a part of

street, of old age. He had been ill a few
weeks with a slight attack of grip, but
his condition did not seem serious until
a short time before his death. He was
eighty-seven years old, and formerly a
prominent educator in South Carolina. A
remarkable feature of Prof. Rivers' life
was that up to the time of his death he
had never been ill an entire day and
neyer suffered the slightest accident. He
came heie from Charleston, but the
greater part of his life was spent in his
native state. South Carolina. He was
born in Charleston, S. C., July 18. I.s22,
and received his preparatory education
there. He was graduated from the Uni
versity of South Carolina with the first
honors of his class in lHil. He leaves two
