Henry Craemer, a German immigrant employed at a local brewery, was accused of the brutal murder of Phillipina Mueller and her child on August 13, 1894. His lawyer, O. F. Wegener of the Seattle law firm Wegener, Lace and Pratt, tells the story of his unfair conviction, which carried the death penalty. Craemer's reputation within the German community was unblemished, the evidence was entirely circumstantial. Wegener claimed police corruption, focusing on the sordid relationship between the police department and the prostitution rings and gambling halls of South Seattle. The title, roughly translated into English, is "The Cramer Case: A Drama from German-American Life - How To Fabricate Evidence Against a Helpless German Worker - Authentic Representation of the Famous Criminal Case - Based on a Lecture by Mr. O. F. Wegener of Seattle, Wash., on May 18, 1896 in Philadelphia, in the hall of the German Society of Pennsylvania." Wegener presents new evidence of Craemer's innocence.
