Worry Over the Sil ver Product of Precious Met of the International Arbi tration WASHINGTON CITY April United supreme court through Chief Justice Fuller has rendered an opinion adverse to the constitutionality of state liiws providing for the seizure o liquor brought into the state in original Such laws the court holds are au interference with the iuterstate com merce law After the liquor becomes property of the importer the state may under its police powors regulate or pro hlbit sales Iiiifiiirtatlou is Lawful But it has no power in the of ax press congressional authority to prohibit the transportation of the article from an other stute uurl ita delivery to the im porter Tlie case in which the decision was made was that of Gus Leidy Co plaintiffs iu error vs A J Hardin It was brought here on appeal from the supreme court of Iowa and this court re veres the decision of the state court from the Opinion TIiK court says that intoxicating liquor is undoubtedly un article of traffic like any other article in which a right of prop arty exists and concedes that the states have the undoubted right to control their purely internal affairs in doing which they exercise powers not surren dered to the national government but whenever the law ofthe state amounts es sentially to H regulation of commerce with foreign nations or among the states as it clous when it inhibits directly or in directly the receipt of an imported com modity or its disposition before it has ceased to become an article of trade be tween one state und another or another country and this it comes in conflict with a power which in this particular has been exclusively vested in the general govern ment and is therefore void Tlirue Justices Dissent Justices Gray Harlan and Brewer dis sent They say that tin right to regulate 01 prohibit the sale of intoxicating liquors be longs to the states as a branch of their po lice powers and can be judiciously and effectively exercised by them alone ac cordiny to their views of public policy and local needs The Iowa prohibitory laws were enacted by the legislature iu the exercise of its undoubted power to protect its inhabitants against the evils physical moral mid social attending the free use of intoxicHting They affect commerce much more remotely than laws of a state validity of which is authorizing the construction of Bridges and dams across navigable waters within its limits which wholly obstruct the course of commerce and navigation or than quaran tine huvs which operate directly upon all ships and merchandise coming into the ports of the state of tlie lecidloti If the statutes of a state restrietingtJrj prohibiting tlie sale of intoxicating liquors within its territory are to be held inopera tive and void as applied to liquors sent or brought from another state and sold by tho importers in original packages the consequences must be that an inhabitant of any state may under the pretense of interstate commerce and without license or supervision of any public authority cany or send liquor into and sell in any or all of the other states despite any legisla tion of those states on the subject and al though his own state should be the only one which had not enacted similar laws A Michigan Cuse Decided The court also decided the case of Henry hyng against the people of the state of Michigan involving the validity of the Michigan luw taxing beer in the original packages manufactured iu Wisconsin and sold in Michigan The court denies the power o a state to exclude directly or in directly the subjects of interstute com merce by the imposition of burdens there on or to regulate such commerce without congressional permission OUR GOLD AND SILVER PRODUCT Statistics Showing How Much Was DiiK Out in 1880

about to marry the daughter of a rich citizen residing on River street Hia fam ily received the match favorably and saw in an early marriage a now career for the young man The Young Man Changes His Mliul All at once young Shoemaker said that he would not marry a girl who had been raised in the lap of luxury He had a ter rible dread that he would one day become poor and then his wife would be no help to him He proposed to marry a poor girl who in the hour of adversity if such an hour came could assist him in earning his daily bread Annie Lawrence was the girl he proposed to marry She was formerly employed as a housekeeper When Shoe makers relatives heard of his intentions they became highly indignant The court was petitioned to appoint a commission to examine into the youngmans sanity

Murderer Is Await ing at Auburn Prison N to tile Instruments ofteath Southwleks Testa of Taking Ofl the Time of Which but One Knows AtBlRX N Y April state prison at Auburn where Kemrnler has been waiting since midnight on Sunday for his death by electricity was built in and the town grew up around it like the homes of tenantry around a great manor house It looks more like a than a jail and its top Li surmounted by a trivial copper figure of a soldier in conti nental uniform as inappropriate and as vain as the painted decorations on au iron safe The copper uoldier vas typical yes terday of the people of Auburn in their apathetic interest in what might be going on inside the stone walls over which he has stood and kept guard for over half a century fctuulliarlty Breeds liailifTerence The big prison has no interest to them they pass it by with the contempt of fam iliarity and it has less consideration in their eyes than the post office and the rail road station which it faces So they went about their business yesterday as uncon cernedly as though the eyes of the whole country and of countries across the sea were not turned on it with morbid human or scientific interest And while all of theiie people may wonder at the delay very few aeem to consider the effect it may have on the murderer or to regard him in any other light than the subject of an experi ment of great scientific interest A Momentous Experiment For the execution is but an experiment Acd hew successful the execution may be wcLi demonstrated yesterday when Warden Durston explained and rehearsed the exe cution for tho benefit of a few reporters of the United Press Among them was Dr A P Southwick one of the state commis sioners who accompanied them and who has experimented on over 100 animals and has modelled over half a dozen chairs for use in execution by electricity He was shown the chair which has finally been de cided upon the one constructed by Warden Durston himself and of which he is very justly proud He thought there was per haps a superabundance of straps and fas tenings but this is a matter of opinion The Doctor Tried It On tho Dogs I have killed in my experiments over a hundred dogs said Dr Soutlnvick by electricity and I have never found it nec to bind them the only parapher nalia necessary being a bit between their teeth which was fastened to the muzzle and which with the saliva and inucroid secretions in the mouth formed a complete circuit when the eecessary wires were at tached All I foxmd needful to do was to attract the dogs attention by a word and then to turn on the current As long us the current was prolonged tho dog stood rigid as if he were frozen The moment it was turned off he fell limp and unstrung I believe that when this method of execu tion reaches its perfection there will be as little paraphernalia us I used then and that all these straps and bands will be done away with The Apparatus of Death To show how quickly tlie victim of the experiment could be arranged in place for his taking off one of the visitors was placed in the chair and the straps and head piece were placed over him The time was very brief The chair itself is a straight backed large arm chair with a moveable head rest fashioned somewhat on the prin ciple of the head rest cm the barber or dentist chair Over the top of the chair back passes the wire attached to the cap and which rests on the victims head There are in all eight broad leather straps attached to the chair all of which have to be fastened Two of them fasten the body one holds the electroid two fasten tho arms one passeaover each wrist and the seventh fastens thci leather mask that fits under the chin and across the eyes leaving the mouth and nostrils open to permit the condemned man to breath for a minute or so at least before it is over The Doomed Man Makes His Will Kemmlers most important recent act lias been the making of his will He left the pitifully few things he owns to those whom he has been thrown with in the prison His Bible went to Daniel Me Naughton his pious keeper and the Testa ment to Bill Wemple the other watch man He gave pigs in clover with which he amuses himself to Rev Dr Houghton and his slate to Mr Yates the prison chaplain To Mrs Durston he gave qhe primer from which he learned to read under her teaching and his little book of Bible stories There is absolutely nothing known as to when the electrocution will take place but it is popularly that it will occur some time before Thurs day morning The Trial of Vandergrift MT HOLLY ST J April trial of Mrs Carrie Vandergrift for attempting to slowly poison her steprson Frank Nor man to death by administering croton oil in his food with the alleged object of ob taining insurance money on his life was begun here yesterday Dr Hull testified that finding that his patient got no better he decided that something was wrong and accused Mrs Vandergrift of giving the patient croton oil and told her she ought to be in jail She did not deny the charge nor that she had poisoned her husband She merely called another physician and threatened Dr Hull with arrest Xo other witness was examined yesterday In
