Hor rible Story Told of Kemmlers Taking Off uiul He EMed Absolutely Without Go Into Over the Mutter NEW YORK Aug Daniel F Sickles sheriff of New York in an inter view expressed the opinion that the exhi bition in the deathchamber at Auburn prison would rot have the slightest influ ence in the rejje iling of the law Why should thii law be repealed he oiiked Simply because this man suf fered Nonsenae lie deserved to suffer and tho greater tha suffering tho greater will be the deterring effect on the mur derous creatures of his ilk Haw No Sympathy for Wife Ilvitflherti Biff general suggested the reporter the ostensible reason why the law was ubstitutod for the old law was that it wag supposed to provide a more civilized way of putting to death Their suf ferings wero to be decreased as much 03 possible Yes I understand that and let me say right hero that the maudlin sentiment of for these wifo butchers and other brntcs stimulated by ulleged con version is altogether wrong Men like bbis Kemmler should be punished and it their punishment is enhanced by the latest metKod of execution it is not R cause for sorrow by liny means If You Only Clve It Time But aside from that granting that the new law was intended to make death as painless possible it hna by no means been demonstrated that tho execution was a failure It was the first attempt re member and as successful I Imagine as was the first attempt at hanging a mur derer or crucifying him Electrocution ia an art that has to be acquired by practice and after tbreo or four scoundrels have jeen put out of the way by this method then things will no doubt move more easily Then you are not in favor abrogat ng the law Terror a Good Tiling By no means I guess it is a very good aw It provides a good way of punishing hose persons whose minds run to slaugh ter and the terrors of It will miiku the as sasain pause before he murders his victim ith tlio knife or pistol with poison or ihe club There will be no trouble at all and the fellows who think it is a gooi Jine to carry out their murderous designs on defenseless women because a sickly lympathy has been worker up for this man Kemmler had better go slow They will be shufllecl oft right along without hitch of duy consequence TRANSACTIONS OF CONGRESS tmllent Points of the Doings of Both lloues Briefly Told WASHINGTON Crrr Aug some preliminary and

law said yesterday in an interview I ffcel just as I have always felt on this natter There is nothing against the sys ern at all and tho fact is there has been a deal of senseless sensational talk about the execution For instance the big tory in regard to the sickening spectacle f froth saliva etc coming from Keram ers mouth is ridiculous It was a per octly natural thing and was caused by he muscular contraction of the stomach t was nothing unusual at all In fact a of ladies could sit In a room where n execution of this kind was going on nd not see anything repulsive whatever The Execution tt The burning of the flesh was also ox ggerated That was caused simply by ie fact that the sponge under the elec rode was too small A light current was asaii K through then and the sponge aving dried out the electrode just ouchcd the skin 1 think Kemmlers erve affected those there about as much s anything It looked to me though as n evidence of mental incapacity He eemed to be without fear and helped to djust thestraps in a way that was simply stonishinjr No sir I do not consider hot this will be the last execution by iojtricity There will be lots of them It as been proved that the idea is correct nd I think tho law is the best one The xecution was a success Kemmler never new whathappened him and died ab olutely without pain OPINION IN ENGLAND n Kleetrleliin Denounces the Meth Xewapiipers LOKDOX Preece chief elec trician of tho postoflice department in an Interview last evening recalled the fact that he had denounced the use of elec tricity or the execution of criminals be fore the British association in ISSJ He reiterated tho views he expressed at that time and declared that he did not believe a powerful Leyden battery effective in the taking of life The American plan he thought was BS good as any but the dif ficulty was to know what amount of elec tricity was certain to produce death with out torture From a scientific point of view he thought the execution of Kemm ler wad a failure OutEditor Who Is Not Worried All the papers except The Pall Mall Gazette go into convulsions of tiou over the horror as they term it The Gazette tells its contemporaries to go slow that the American people are too ten der with criminals rather than too severe that the published accounts do not justify the assertion that Kemmler suffered R particle and that all the heroics are with out any justification in fact Not an ex pert who attended the execution can be quoted as asserting that Kemmler felt anything after the electric contact was made Uliicil Off of Gold Plates Loxcox

continued at Battery D In the afternoon the triennial inspection of the Patriarchs took place in Luke Front park About 5000 men were in line and made a gorgeous display The Event ot the Day Owing to the dense crowds and avident mismanagement on the part of the offi cials the big parade didnt get started un til about oclock and it was about I oclock when the head of the procession passed the grand stand Grand Sire Un derwood in all the splendor of his gener alissimos uniform was at the head of the column surrounded by his staff of aided in costumes equally gorgeous His spe cial escort consisted

were Governor Fifer and staff Mayor Cregier and others re viewing the parade The most brilliant exhibition was that of the Bnssarsand the Chicago Zouavesbut that part of the review which included the Militant army was a fine sight The uniformity and elegance of the regimentals made tjie military branch of Odd Fellows as imposing a spectacle an that of the KnightsTemplar ten vears ago though the uniformed Masonic fra ternities were perhaps stronger in num bers While the Patriarchs Militant passed by the reviewing stand Governor Fifer and Mayor Cregier remained stand ing with uncovered heads

darkness Then came more bombs from the white sleeved morUrmen in the park and with each explosion there trailed through the air long feathery ribbons of sparks troupes of lighted balloons and stars that cracked and hissed until one could imagine himself in the midst of a terrific battle between the planets An Hour of Brilliance The bursting of the bombs and the hissing of the rockets were incessant For sixty minutes the air was filled with all kinds of expensive contrivances A shower of sparks resembling a weeping willow tree came from one bomb From another there burst a hundred plumes of fire with a ball of colored flame swaying from the center of the pyrotechnic gem Other bombs which burst with deafening reports filled the air with stars and me teors until the faces of the spectators grew red and blue by turns Emblematic Pieces The set pices emblematic of the order went off with a crackling noise that sounded like a man tearing up a carpet or the explosive snap of popcorn when held over a good fire There was no hitch in anything Fountains of colored stars burst from the grass the air was seamed flying rockets and away up abore everything were the bombs bursting
