AV. the for the Keiuuilcr, th ALBAXT, April was a lultation of the prison authorities here Wednesday to perfect the arrangements (or tbe electrocution of Kemmler at Auburn prison. Warden Dunstan, Superintendent Lathrop and Dr. Mo- Donald, Commissioner of Lunacy, dis- cussed the matter at length. The ad- mission of representatives of the press was the hardest part to arrange. The law for the inflicting of a new method of capital punishment prohibits the pub- lishing of the details of the execution. The pressure, however, of newspaper men, scientists and doctors is so great that it was decided to go so far as tbe law would bllow. 'iwo news- paper representing the United Press and the other the Associ- ated be admitted. They are to be selected at the headquartersia New York, and must be proven beyond doubt to be newspaper men and not in- terested in the success of any company supplying electricity for any purpose. The officials are keenly on their guard to prevent the admissioa o! any repre- sentative of the company, lest some hitch may oueur and color be given to the points that company raised against electrocution in the appeal of the Kemmler case. The two press men will be sworn as jurors, and if the newspapers publish the details of tho execution tho warden and prison officials will not bo the ones that will break the law. It is on this theory that th ey are admitted. Among the other ten jurors will be E. T. Gerry and his associates, who were on the commission which drafted the law; Referee Tracy Becker and the Cayuga County Judge and D sinct Attorney, Besides these there will be five assis- tants to Harold Brown, the executioner.
