HANG ING OF k HAN Mrs. Meeker Executed in a Vermont Penitentiary, Execution or a Boy at I.ccnbnrg, Ilanglne Uk South Carolina. Windson, Vt., March 30. Mrs. Emeline Meeker was hanged in the Penitentiary here to-day for the murder of littlo Alice Mocker, aged fourteen years, in 1880. The victim ef the tragedy was an orphaned girl named Meeker, and the alleged murderers were Almon Meeker and' Emeline Meeker, mother and son. The Meekers were poor farming folks, who lived on the outskirts of the village of Waterbury. Mrs. Meeker was of a sullenmorose nature, nnd could not tolerate children in her house. Her son Almon was uncouth, and possessed littlo learning. The old lady was extremely deaf, 'whilo the boy's faculties were quite dull. It was in this household that Alice Meeker, a half-sister of E. C. Meeker, husband of Emiline Meeker, was sent to live from the poor-farm o f Charlotte, in 1879. She was the object of abuse nnd hatred from the time of her entrance under tho Meeker roof. One night, after Alice had gone to bed, she was seized and roughly dressed in a calico gown, and a sack tied over her head. She was then -carried by her murderers to a wagon, driven lor"mims along a lonely road, and finally forced to drink a dose of strychnine disguised in sweetened water. The body waq buried in a swamp. When Mrs. Meeker ond Abmon, were arrested the latter confessed tho, crime, and at the fall term of the' Washington county eourt pleaded guilty to miliar in the.firstdgree, and was sentenced to be hung on the second Friday in February, 1882. Owing to mitigating circumstances his sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. Emiline Meeker pleaded' not euiltv. A lurr was impanneled, and the trial proceeded, lasting ten days, , The prisoner's counsel demanded separate trials, but Judge Bedfield overruled the claim and required both respondents to, be tried together. Tho trial lasted ten days, and the jury, after being qui two, hours, came Into Court and rendered a verdict of guilty of murder iu the first degree against Mrs. Meeker. The sentence of the Court was that she be confined in the State prison at Windsor, the last three months to be passed in solitary confinement, aud there be hanged by the neok till dead. Her final interview with her son Almon took place last night. They shook hands, the mother showing slight excitement. She claimed it is all ful.se, and Aluiou's lies brought her to her present position, and de- maiidcd why he did so. She admitted she could tell a good story, but claimed that justice should ho meted to all. She said all the J'uuiily hated Alice and had whipped her severely. Almon asked her if she had not asked him to take (he child to the mountains to starve. She laughed, saying hIio never thought of such a thing. During the interview, which bmed oer an hour, !io showed great resolution. .iriji WILLIAM HKIMKR. Lekshiiro. Va March .10.
