A IBROOKLYN ()OPINION.
Pretty Jernnie Cramer and Her
"Bringing Up."
Apart. from the fact tihat Jecnnie Cramrer
was a remarkably handsome youn)g woman
and that the manner in which she was
murdered is partially involved in mystery or,':
there are many other points ill the case
now in course of inivestigation to warrant
the usual int erest taken in it by the pub
lie. The girl was somewhat of a celebrity, p4
and eveybody in New Haven apparently
knew her as "pretty Jennie (tranmer."
She had ieen it is proved a well behaved 1
and obedient daughter up to the time of si,,
her meeting with the miserable trio who Se
are now on trial for her murder. She kept
regular hours, went out only when she got
permission from her parents, and was in
all respects worthy of the good opinion
entertained of her by the neighbors. One
is led to place more emphasis upon this Ia
state of things because it, colors the subse
quent events in her life even more darkly Br
than first appearedI. Efforts have apparent
ly been put forth to damage her character w
from the outeet and to show that she
adottedt the evil ways of her new friends
out of sheer viciousness. Moreover, an at
tempt was made to show that her parents
had turned her beauty to accoit in attract- i
ing custom to the cigar store, ahd had, by
thus trading upon her ap)pearance, expos
ed her to temrptation and weakened her Tc
good impulses. From what has already
appeared in evidence it is clear that these
stories are without foundation in fact. The
Cramer family was in every way respect
able; the parents certainly brought their to
children up carefully and discreetly, and ,;
the simple, straightforward tee.tirony 6f ,.c
the mother in the court room yesterday,
without any attempt to nmake a sensation,
will be found to bear heavily against the
wretched conspirators who are now
brought face to face with the gallows.
It has been pretty well1 established that
Jennie Cramer lied a violent death. She
was probably poisoned with arsenic,
though that either of the Malleys adminis
tered it has not yet been established. What
has been made perfectly clear so far, how
ever, is that these two cousins, sons of
comparatively rich merchants in the city
had deliberately conspired to debauch a
young and innocent girl. The laid their
plans with the utmost heartlessness.
Knowing the strength of modesty they
carefully prepared to attack it by ensnar
ing the poor girl through one of her own
sex. They procured the assistance of a
wanton whom they palmed] off as a cousin,
and through her assunred friendship ob
tained the confidence of their victim. The
child who hesitated to associate with two
fast young men felt safe at all events with
one of her own sex, and yielded to per
suasions in joining the group at dinrnersre
ate excursions and suppers, and finally at
the sumlputous house of one of the con
spirators where, as we have little doubt it
will be proved, one of the young scound
rels accomplished by brute force what even
the deep laid plan failed to bring about. A
considerable amount of money, the plot
ting of three young men anid a young
woman, and all the resources of wealth
and social position had been expended to
produce this shameful result. After weeks
of rscheming and conspiring,the noble amnbi
tion of Mr..Jamens BM alley was achieved,
and a poor, simple, foolish girl was de
bauchedl. This much established, the pro
secution would not have nauch d(ifliculty,
one would think, in finding a motive for
the murder. T'he scoundrels who could not
look on beauty without coveting it, or vir
tue except to dlestroy it, who cruelly
sacrificed the happiness of: a maiden,
wrung a mother's heart to the point of
breaking it, and all to gratify one base pas
sion, were amply capab le of adding the
lesser crime -f murder to the hideous cata
logue of their iniquities. Lawyers may
quibble about octohedral crystals, and
pick to pieces the chemical analysis of this
poor ensnared, betrayed, and murdered
child, but unless thie jurors who listen to
this revolting testimony are less than men,
the state of Connecticut will hIang at least
two of its promising young people and the
country at large will learn of their execu
tion with gloomy satisfaction. With such
an exhibit of bestial depravity allied to
superhuman cruelty beforehim the news
raper reader who has learned of the pet
ing and worship that these young scound
rels have received at the hands of the belles
of New Ilaven must possess a powerful
stomach, indeed, if he does not turn from
the spectacle with disgust and abhorance.
No wonder these precious "bloods" dread
ed a brother's vengeance when thie story of
sister's undoing should reach his ears, and
no wonder they silenced with death the
beautiful lips that could tell it, The re
cords of humansin were never blackened
by afouler tale than that of Jennie Cra
mer's wrongs. I Brooklyn Eagle.
At a wedding reception the other day a
check for $25,000, signed by the father of
the bride, was among the presents display
ed. The cashier of the bank upon which
the check was drawn happened to be pres
ent, and he was disagreeable enough to
tell the gentleman in the wine room that
the bride's father had not half that amount
of money to his credit in the bank.
