Tyskfödd anarkist. Snickare. Kom till USA 1885. Född 9 September 1864 och död 10 November 10 1887.

En av Haymarketmartyrerna dömd till döden för bombkastningen.

Efter domen talade Ling till rätten:

I repeat that I am enemy of the “order” of today, and I repeat that, with all my powers, so long as breath remains in me, I shall combat it. I declare frankly and openly that I am in favor of using force. I have told Captain Schaack [who had arrested him] and I stand by it; “if you fire upon us, we shall dynamite you!” Ah, you laugh! Perhaps you think, “You’ll throw no more bombs”; but let me assure you that I die happy on the gallows, so confident I am that the hundreds and thousands to whom I have spoken will remember my words; and when you shall have hanged us, then, mark my words, they will do the bomb throwing! In this hope I say to you; I despise you! I despise your “order”, your laws, your force-propped authority. Hang me for it!

Han tog sitt liv medels sprängmedel i väntan på dödsstraffet.
