State has hanged 13 killers since '35

State has hanged 13 killers since '35
Creator: Topeka Capital
Date: June 22, 1965
This newspaper article on the history of the death penalty in Kansas appeared in the Topeka Capital on the day George York and James Latham were executed at the Kansas State Penitentiary at Lansing. York and Latham were sentenced to death for the killing of Otto Ziegler in Wallace, Kansas, though they had murdered at least six other people on route between Florida and Colorado. The article summarizes the many changes in Kansas capital punishment law. The article claims the "mobster era" of the 1930s was the primary motivation behind the legislature's reinstatement of the death penalty in 1935, after its initial repeal in 1907.


The Topeka daily capital. Sheldon edition

The Topeka daily capital. Sheldon edition
Creator: Sheldon, Charles Monroe, 1857-1946
Date: March 13 - 17, 1900
Congregational minister, Charles M. Sheldon is best known for his book, In His Steps (published in 1897), and for his efforts to obtain better educational opportunities for African Americans living in Tennessee Town (a former district of Topeka, Kansas). In March 1900, Frederick O. Popenoe, editor and owner of The Topeka Daily Capital, gave Sheldon complete control over the paper for a week. Sheldon tried to publish the paper as he thought Jesus would, refusing to print "hard" news or ads for tobacco, alcohol or patent medicines. Circulation rose from 15,000 daily copies to well over 350,000. He listed every person, including the janitor, in the editorial column except for Popenoe who had angered Sheldon by hiring an agent to advertise the special editions. All six issues of Sheldon's edition are included here. A searchable transcription is not yet available.
