subject for discunsion among scientists and medical men for many a long clay At a m yesterday William Kemmler strap ped in a chair pre pared for the pur poso received the lightning stroke that sent sent him on his way to eter nity whether it instantanc o u s 1 y liberated the splr DZATTI CAT it ia a question At any rate for those who were present as tho legal witnesfies it was a sickening spoctaolo For four and a half minutes tho current of dfiath was kept Ilnshing through the brain of tho doomed man intervals and not until thiit period had p insed by could the doctors say with cer tainty that absolute death had iuter velied Tetall8 of tho Execution The first shock was allowed to pass backward anil forward through Kemm lers system ior eighteen seconds but two minutes after the current was cut off there was evidence of respiration As soon is piKBbla the current was returnocl then cuS off and again respiration was evident after a few moments Saliva cume from tho mouth the chest heaved there was wheezing la the throat The shock was Bgiln put to the prisoner who the doc tors remarked was unconscious from the moment of the first shock After a short time smoke sppenrotl at the base The floish was burning The spectacle was most trying After the third contact ol four minutes the mnu was declared dead Coolness of tho Condemned Kommler was phenomenally cool He was brought into tbe deathchamber by Warden Durston and soatud in a chair A Qaeatioa Was Kemmler dead when his cheat moved and bin lips gave forth stranga ghastly sounds Was he briathing cr was there involuntary and phenomena action of the chest Some or tha eminent experts in attendance said to the United Press correspondent while the body was still warm in the chair that there was no doubt that then were signs of returning animation that the respira tion for respiration they believed it to be was growing stronger and that in time if the current had not been turned on again he would have revived Others and among them Dr Spitza stated with equal positiveness the conviction that the first shock killed Kemmler instantly Agree That There Was No Puln Upon one point however all the agreed and that was that Kemmler was unconscious of pain from the first instant of electrical contact the end Dr Shirady was the least satisfied of all the He said he had seen a number of men hanged but had never witnessed soi re volting a scene as that in Kemmlers case He said the experiment wasnt reassuring as to the scientific value of electricity for executional purposes WHAT THE AUTOPSY SHOWED BDRDDN

LOCKSVOOD Gee Pass and Ticket Agent Grand Mich THB LSVTB where he said upon being askuit if he had anything to say that ha wished every ody good luck When the cap was placed upon his head and strapped there he re marked Oh youd better press that own further I guess Press that clown So tho headpiece was undamped and pressed further down Whila it was be ng done Kemmler said Well I want do the beat I can I cant do any better han that and this while everybody else the room was evidently highly excited The Instruments of Uoath The condemned man sat strapped in a hair with one electrode lu the cap fitted o his head and another pressing against he lower part of his spine an opening avlng been made in the trousers so that lie plate would be in contact with his esh Up in another part of the build ng there stood the dynamo The electric ower was 3000 volts and those having hargo of the lever that releaaed the eleo rlc message of death say that the voltage urlng tho execution was from 1000 to 600 volts a force which had been de clared to be abundant to produce Instant death Who moved the lever as all things being ready Warden Durstou stepped to the door and gave the signal no one who knows will tell An Alternating Current The dynamo used is constructed to gen erate an alternating current In lay terms It may be said that In alternating current dynamos the electric force under goes rapid periodic changes being one moment at zero increasing to maximum diminishing to zero than reversing in di rection it again rises to maximum falls again to zero The Auburn machine is capable of about 230 of these reversals second or about 14000 every min ute When applied to the criminal as in Kemmler3 case tho rapidly alternating throbs have each about tho physical force necessary to lift 18T pounds one foot in one second It Is like beating an object with a heavy hammer alternately on each side with reab force very rapidly In the case of electrizing the nerve cells are believed o be torn from the glands or the ganglia OPINIONS OF THE DOCTORS They Generally Agree That the Victim Suffered Xo Pain The tragedy being over a statement was by the three In then they had a breathing It this period that Dr Spltika dictated the following statement to tho United Press representative There is no doubt that consciousness was abolished instantly at the first contact Tho first current did not destroy all vital phenomena but some reflex phenomena or phenomena of vagative lite resisted and that I think you can safely say was due to tha fact that voltage was not constant or strong enough He added I believe this system of to hanging And to last expression of opinion Dr McDoaaH who was stand by gare a hearty assent Dr South wick the father of the electricide system was satisfied with the execution at a first le above points at reduced rates experiment He said to the United Press ror descriptive matter time cards and full thh formation address I that Kemmler was dead at The Brain Given Evidence of InttanttMie OUA Faralvftig After the execution the witnessiniz doo tora retired for awhile and at re turned to perform the autopsy The body of the dead man as he sat in the execution chair was rigid The jaw had not fallen and the pleasant expression with which Kemmler had greeted the witnesses as he entered the execution room still lin gered about his features Dr Jenkins of New York was deputed to handle the knife and Dr Shrady at his own sugges tionacted as secretary nnd took full nbtes of the operation A Scar on the Spine The clothing on the body was removed and this revealed a scar nearly five inches in diameter where the second electrode had pressed against the base of the apfbae showing that the current had buriaed through tbe flesh The body looked healthy andjwell nourished Theflrst ate taken was to bind a clinical theremomsite to the nape of the neck and take the torn perature The record demonstrated tha the man was dead beyond all question Removal of the Visoera Then Dr Jenkins took his surgeons knife and began operations The bod was cut open TUb heart lungs and othe organs were taken out and their cond tion noted carefully They were all pu in Muellers fluid for preservation and fu ture examination When the organsi in the trunk of the body had been carefully the top of the skull was re moved and the brain taken out Thlswa the most interesting feature of the exam ination as the theory on which the claim of greater humanity for this method o execution are based is the theory that tho electric current paralyses the brain In stantly and thus destroys all sensation SeemB to Settle One Fact The physicians found evidence o tbe effect of the current on th formation of the skull on the blood and oa the brain tissue direct beneath tbe point of contact which setig fled them that the paralysis of the brain was immediate This ended the autopsy and tbe doctors withdrew while the bodi left in the hands of the prison au thorlties to be bnried IB the convict oeme tery the law making no provision for handing it over to his relatives Dr Shrady yesterday afternoon tomn neribed his notes and prepared them for the signatures of the examining surgeons but some of them left the city during the afternoon so the report will not be made public immediately Dr Sehradys Opinion Dr Schrndy telegraphed an editorial to The Medical Record of New York of which he is editor in which while agree ing that death was instantaneous anc scientifically the execution was a suc cess be held the question of humanity open and concludes that It is no improve ment on hanging He adds to his edito rial an argument against capital punish ment of any kind Tliey Observed the Law NEW YORK Aug Mall and Ex press Commercial

claims it as United States prop erty acquired by treaty and purchase and must be held at all hazards The Reciprocity Question Blaine being the guest of the president did not express his views but will at a iiture cabinet council on the subject There were radical differences of opinion reported on the reciprocity question and nstead of Blaine being won over to the iresident he is further from him
