THE ELMIRA MURDERER HANGED.

BINGHAMTON, N. Y., July 2.—William Meinecke was hanged here in the jail yard to-day for the murder of Katie Brodhoff. The execution was witnessed by about 250 persons. Meinecke was pale and trembled perceptibly when on the scaffold. He maintained his innocence to the last and hoped his blood would be on the prosecution.
