AN EMISSARY OF HELL
Followjng in the wake of the indescribable Hickman
case of Los Angeles, another startling news dispatch of
jungle depravity, ravished innocence and murder was told
in Monday's dispatches.
Marian McLean!
That was the girl’s name. And it happened in Ohio
where a generation or two ago this crime would have
been an impossibility.
Marian McLean, a name as pure and sweet a s the
nattered and outraged little body of the six year old child
it designated—lies on a cold, marble slab in a morgue in
the American city of Cincinnati in the year of our Lord,
1931—a victim of jungle lust and passion of one alleged to j
be Charles Bischoff, age 45, a sex crazed monster, a das
tard criminal of the first stripe, an emissary of Hell itself!
Little Marian was lured away from her home and
held captive by this arch fiend for five days before she
died.
“I done it. Its done,” said Bischoff. At first his victim
was quiet, he stated in his confession, but after he hadj
Injured her, she cried and he left her tied and almost dead, j
“Friday morning I felt her chest and she dead,” he told i
the police.
And Cincinnati authorities believe Bischoff insane!
If indicted, (get the word “if”) and the jury finds him j
sane, only then will he stand trial for first degree murder. 1
Great God in Heaven! Do the Cincinnati authorities I
realize what has been done? Do they realize what the;
above statement means? Are legal cobwebs going to de
lay and perhaps defeat justice? Are alienists preparing a
legal loop-hole through "which this monster may possibly
escape punishment for his shocking crime while sob sis-!
ters shed crocodile tears for this Dracula of modern Cin-1
cinnati?
What a lesson Marian McLean teaches. And what a j
price this innocent baby girl paid.
This crime would never happen in Alaska. One would ;
think the benediction of the Almighty had fallen upon
the children of the Territory where Providence alone af
fords them a playground safe from the dregs of humani
ty. There is naught but compassion in our heart for Mar
lan.Perhaps, as this is read, pure white snows are gently j
covering a new mound out there in a cemetery in Cinci
natti while the soul of a trusting and defenseless child j
wings its way to solace in the protecting arms of Eternity.
Though her lips are sealed forever, Marian McLean cries j
for quick and just punishment of the beast who ravished :
and killed her. A clamorous laity demands it!
An Eastern governor favors more attention to the
prevention of fires, not only on account of the direct mon
etary saving but also as a means for affording employ
ment. Either benefit is sufficient to warrant considera
tion of what he has to say. Doubters can get direct evi
dence from such cities as Baltimore or Chicago, both of
whom know what a fire means. Those who like quo
tations can rely on the advice of Shakespeare:
“A little fire is quickly trodden out;
Which, being suffered, rivers cannot quench.”
A lit-up driver is a poor substitute f or headlights,
avers Sourdough Bill.
Let us hope radio programs also reached their very
worst in 1931.
