UANDO, N. D., Jan. 20.—Albert F.
Bomberger, tbe murderer of the Krieder
family was hanged at 1
-.40 p. m.
Bomberger, accompanied by the »her
iff ascended the scaffold at 1:80. He
was calm and bid his friends
good-bye showing but little signs
of weakening except in the pallor of
his face and a slight treml Hng of the
limbs as the sheriff's deputies stepped
forward to pinion his arms and feet.
He, refused the offices of the minister
who was present and when asked if he
had anything to say, turned' to a few
witnesses who were present in the in
olosuro and said:
"I am sorry for njy crime and hope
no one will follow in my footsteps.
Good-bye."
The black cap and noose were then
adjusted, and at 1t40 p. m. the trap was
spung that by the taking of on# life was
to avenge the cruel murder of six
people.
The execution was witnessed by large
numbers of people from the surround
ing hills.
BOMRKRGER** CltlllK.
Be Killed Six of the Kreider VMUf,
Near €an«1o, N. D.
The crime for which Bomberger was
executed was the murder of Daniel 8.
Ireider, bis wife and four children. The
crime was committed at daylight on th«
morning of July 7 last. The murdered
family were at one time residents of
Lebanon county,1 Pennsylvania, where
four brothers of the murdered man still
reside. Bomberger is also a native of
the same county, and hi.s father lives on
Lehman street, in the City of Lebanon.
Early on the morning of the day named,
the community was horrified by the
nrriv.il of little Annie Kreider,who, half
dressed and almost frantic, had walked
in from the farm, about two mile*
distant.
Between Rliriekn and Cries
Merly, aged 11 Mary, aged 9, and
i,
DaVid aged, aged 7 four other children,
the eldest being Annie, aged 15, were
spared by the murderer. From their
stories K was developed that on the day
prior to the tragedy Bomberger had a
dispute \s\th his uncle over a trifling
matter, and during which the two men
nearly came to blows. Mrs. Kreider,
however, interfered, and it was sup
posed that the trouble was amicably ad
justed. Just about daylight on the fol
lowing day, however, Bomberger went
into the room where his uncle was sleep
ing, and fairly
Perforated Him With Bullets.
Be then went down to the kitchen and
shot Mrs. Kreider, who was preparing
breakfast. Annie, who slept upstairs,
heard the shots, and upon getting up
met the murderer on the stairs. He
drove her back to his own room and
locked her in, and then went into the
children's room and began killing them.
Bernice jumpsd out of a window, but
the fiend went after her, brought
her back and shot her through
the head. By piteous appeals
and supplications Annie induced
the butcher to spare her life and also to
spare her three remaining little brothers.
At the muzzle of his gun he compelled
her tc prepare his breakfast with the
corpse of her mother lying at her feet.
He leisurely ate the meal, then crimin
ally assaulted her, tied her hand and
foot, locked her in the barn, saddled her
favorite pony and rode away to the
•northward. With the aid of one of her
brothers, the girl succeeded in freeing
herself and made her way to town,
tag the little ones
Alone With the H».
As soon as the alarm had been given
a score of citizens started in pursuit.
Sheriff McCune and a posse followed in
the same direction half an hour later.
The murderer was making for the Tur
tle mountains. At the same time a
mass meeting of citisens in the market
place offered
a
reward of |500 for the
capture of the murderer. Bomberger,
however, managed to make his way to
Deloraine, Manitoba, 60 miles from
Cando, where he was captured late on
Saturday night. He was taken in
charge by Sheriff McCune just in time
to avoid his being lynched by a party of
|D determined men, who went from here
fas that mtrnose. On a fcri*
at i.V milae

to the jail. A large crowd gathered and
clamored for the murderer's blood, but
••through the efforts of the sheriff and po
lice he was safely landed in jail. It was
found necessary, however, to order out
a company of national guards, who did
duty around the jail through the day.
Late at night the murderer waa moved
she told the residents who were astir victed of murder in tha first degree. He
that her father's family had been butch
ered by the hired man. Citizens who
hurried to the homestead found an
awful spectacle of wholesale butchery,
the father lying in his bed, the mother
in the kitchen, where she had been pre
paring breakfast, the three girls, aged
respectively 18,11 and 9, and one 7-year
old boy, lying stiff and btark where
they had fallen from wounds inflicted
by a double-barreled shotgun in the
hands of Bomberger. The latter, who
was a nephew of Dan Kreider, had been
Ny employed on the farm as a general util
ity man for about nine months. The
murdered children were Bennice, aged
to Grind Forks, where he made a full
confession.
The murderer was tried at the next
term of court, promptly convicted and
sentenced to hang. The remains of the
victims were taken to Pennsylvania for
interment, and the surviving children
were also returned to the care of
relatives in Lebanon county. Since
his incarceration Bomcerger, has at
times maintained an air of bravado, and
other times has endeavored to impress
his guards with the belief that he is in
sane. The crimes were ~t so diabolical
a nature that no effort in the direction
of executive clemency has been at
tempted.
HOWARD HANGED.
Notorious Kentucky Oatlaw
eated at Lebanon, Xo.
LBBANON, MO., Jan. 20.—Wila How
ard was hanged at 9:15 a. m. for the
murder of a deaf mute in Marion
c^iuty, Mo., in 1809. He di^d without
confessing.
Howard attempted to -commit suicide
while in his cell. The attempt was un
successful, being frustrated by his guard.
Howard was a Kentuckian. and prior
to his appearance in this state some six
years since, was mixed up in one of the
bloodiest vendettas known in Kentucky.
The crime which brought him to the
gallows was the murder of a d«af mute
named Thomas McMichael, in Marie*
county, in 1889. The murdered man
was stopping with a deaf mnte friend in
a remote part of the county, when How
ard ppoaml at the hous". He repre
sented himself as a detective, and pre*
tended that he warned McMichael foif
robbery. He took the mute out into the
woods a short distance from the
house, shot him and rubied him- of
about ffto and disappeared. Two days
after, the lody was found, and on the
ground near by was Howard's pocket
book and several other articles which in
the trial were the most damaging evi
dence against him. Ho was tracked to
the Pacific coast and found in the Cali
fornia penitentiary under a short sen
tence, and whoa it expired he was re
turned to Missouri. He was tried in the
circuit court of Laclede county and con-
had money and fought the case desper
ately. It cost the state over $13,000 to

THE BERB TAX.
It^Bibers of "tli* Sen t« Finance Commit

W
A£IUNJTO.\,
Jan. 20.—There are
so'fpe momcera of the senate finance
committee who think there should be an
additional tax on beer. Senator Jones
of Arkansas is one of these. He is not
decided as to whether he shall offer an
amendment, of this character to the in
ternal revenue bill, but he is consider
ing the matter.
"Beer," be said, fa "discussing the
question, "is now taxed $1 a barrel.
There are 82.000,000 gallons of this
beverage manufactured in the United
States, so that it is plain to be seen that
if we must increase the revenue, as we
must if the expense of the government
is to continue as At present, the addition
of $1 a barrel would help out very
materially. The total amount realized
would be equal to about half the esti
mated deficit under the Wilson bill
when it became a law.
"I know,'" he continued, "that it is
objected that it would not be politic to
tax the poor man's beverage but I do
not think that politics should tie taken
into consideration in arriving at a con
clusion in so important a matter as the
raising of a revenue for a great govern
ment. 1 contend, however, that this in
creased tax would not affect the con
sumer at all. It would add only about
on*1-fifth of one cent a glass to the cost
of beer, and it would of course be im
possible to add this amount to the retail
price of an article. As a matter of fact,
1 am told that beer would now be sold
for one or two cents less than it is but
for the difficulty of making change and
the objection that most people have to
carry pennies."

TO CHANGE SEED.
Nona Dakota Farmers Waa* Wheat
Grown In Other Localities.
Br. PAUL, Jan. 20.—Commissioners
Stevens and Erickson and Finley Grant,
secretary, of the North Dakota railroad
commission, had a conference with the
Minnesota commission and the state
grain inspector at the capitol. These
gentlemen have been here several days
in an endeavor to arrange for procuring
seed wheat for North Dakota farmers,
not to supply deetitute farmers, but to
secure a complete change of seed as far
as possible, their own grain in many lo
calities being deteriorated by smut,
which has been increasing rapidly in
the past two years. At a
conference with Minneapolis elevator
people they found the latter not only
willing but anxious that such a result
should be accomplished as far as pos
sible.
The commissioners are anxious to get
seed which is not only free from smut,
mustard and other foul seed, but would
like to have it from sandy soil, in the
belief that the change would be profit
able on the clay soil of North Dakota.
The elevator people will assist them in
every way possible to make the ex
change whenever the localities from
which tbe grain is to be selected are
decided upon. It is also stated that the
railroad companies will make a half
rate in the transportation.
