Chicago Greatly Excited Over
the Horrible Murder of a
Beautiful Girl
By a Notorious Convict Abor

With Lynching.
aueciil DUimtch to THI lilt.
CHICAGO , August 26 1 a. m. At
2 o'clock yesterday morning two po
licemen standing on the sidewalk in
front of the entrance of Nos. 205 and
207 Wait Madison street heard a
strange rustling noise up m the hall.
One of the officers dipped upstairs
and caw the notorious Dr. Charles C.
Earll , the abortionist , recently from
the Jjliet penitentiary , where be
asrred two"years for an abortion. Dr.
Eirll had a towel in his hand and was
wiping up something from the floor in
front of his door. As soon as he saw
the officer , be went into hi * room ,
hut the door and locked it Looking
around the officer discovered & woman
lying on the floor of the hall nuder a
gaslight. Going to her be found that
ahe was dead. The other officer waa
called and the two demanded admit
tance to the room. The doctor at
first refused , but on being told that
the door wonld be broken open , final
ly admitted them. A sun af Dr. Earll ,
aged 14 yean , was found in the room
with him , and both were arrested and
taken to the sUtion house , where
they are now. One officer remained
with the corpse until the arrival of
Lieutenant Ward , and then , at 3
o'clock , proceeded to the coroner's
houae and notified him , who at once
proceeded to the place and made a
survey of the office and the surround
ings. The dead woman was young
and evidently beautiful , about 20
yean of age , with a plump , ripe fig
ure. She was attired in a checked
browu silk ; her black hair was well
kept ; complexion very fair and in
clined to freckles ; and eyes black ,
large and lustrous. She had a bottle
of chloroform in her hand. The theory
of the coroner is that the young woman
died in the doctor' * hands , while the
latter was trying to deliver her of a
child ; that death took place early that
evening , and that the doctor then
dressed her and placed her in the Lall
with a view of diverting suspicion
from himself and to other * . Ia an in
terview in the station house , Dr. Eatll
nuid that the woman , whoso name he
did not know , had repeatedly asked
him to < vomuiit an abortion upon her.
lie claims to have refused , but finally
pretended to do so , and , while 10 en
gaged , the girl died. The cause of
death , he thought , was heart diiease.
lie did not give her the chloroform
and did not see that she had it , until
he took the body out in the hall not
knowing what to do. He protested
that his son was innocent of any
knowledge of the affair and the state
ment of the boy was to the same ef
A- woman called at Dr. Earll'i office
yesterday morning , and being shown
tbe rings immediately went into hys
terics. The body of the girl waa
as that of Ella A. Carl , of G28
West Like street , where she lived
with ber mother and an invalid broth
er. She left home Tuesday evening ,
ostensibly to visit friends on Madison
treet. Not returning during the
night , her mother became alarmed
und , in the morning , net out in search
nf her. Seeing a crowd in front of
Earll's otlicc , she inquired what was
the matter , aud being told that there
was a dead girl , she went in , and see
ing her daughter's bonnet , immedi
ately went into hysterics. A post
mortem examination showed that an
abortion had been committed.
Lynching is being talked of.
The victim , El'a A. C.irl , was an
attractive girl of 10 , and eatntd a live
lihood by sewing. She had clande
stine meetings with a > mo y ung man ,
whose identity appecrato lie unknown
by the mother or police Thia young
man gave her a uold watch , a neck-
1 ice and rings and succeeded in ruin
ing her. She visited Dr. Eirll and be
demanded § 25 for procuring uu abor
tion. Shu gave her gold watch as se
curity , and , further , surrendered her
life aa A penalty for submitting to the
criminal operation.
The physicians , who made the post
mortem examination , tpstited that
the heart and lungs were in good con
dition and that death resulted from an
attempted abortion. The coroner's
jury held Dr. E rll for the crime with
out bail to uwait the action of the
grand jury , but his son was dis
charged. The police are trying to
find the young man who was the
cause of the girl's sad death. The re-
maim will probably be Interred at the
expense of the Grand A my of the
Republic , as Miss Carl'n father was a
member of thai . .rder. The family
came from Ocon mowoc , Wis Dr.
Earll has an um in i tMe reputation as
nabortionist. In 874 he murdered
a beautiful youtij ; gal , namedRosetta
Jackson , from Mnaatown , Wia. , by
the same nefariouj process. He
served in the penitentiary for tha.
and was afterwatdi prosecuted for
procuring an abortion upon Mary
.Alorgan , but escaped puuUhmeut.

bright red color , and their heads
adorned with feathers aud other
insignia of the warriorand if it wasn't
