Folsom, Cal.—"Jake'' Oppenheimer,
known as "The Criminal of the Cen-

of his murderous ferocity, was put to
death on the gallows here for the mur-

Oppenheimer was probably one of
the moat remarkable criminals of the
age. He had at least four murdere
to his credit and innumerable murder-
ous assaults. He commenced his
criminal career when a boy. Dis-
charged by the superintendent of a
telegraph company In San Francisco,

I evidence showing that lie was a dan-

heimer at his trial, at which time "The |

Not long after Oppenhelmer's ar-
rival at Folsom prison, Boss was sent
there as a convict. Oppenheimer wait-

him to death before the guards could

In solitary confinement, but obtaining
a file he made his way out and at-

Wilson with a butcher knife. Wilson
died a few days later.
In 1901 the state legislature passed
a law Imposing the death penalty upon
any prisoner who should make an as-
sault upon a prison official or a fellow-
prisoner Under this law, Oppenhel-,
mer was tried In October, 1907 for!
the murder of Wilson. He was found ’
kullty, and was sentenced to die on
June 6, 1908.
