There were but seventy-three in the interval which elapsed between the momor.t when tho sound issued from Kemraler's lias until the response to the signal canio from tho dynamo room. The dynamo was run up to Its highest speed and again and again tho fuil cur- rent of volte was sent through the body in the chair. It was kept in action four and a half minutes. Suddenly there arose from the body a white vapor bearing with it a pungent and sicken- ing odor.

Y., palled the lever which closed the circuit through Kemmler's body, lie was one of the three persons in the room adjoining the execution cell. The other two were electrician Davis and one of the prison keepers. It is understood that the voltisje was be- tween and on the first shock, and that it ran up to 2.000on the second. After the execution the doctors held an autopsy. The body of tho dead man still 3at in the eleoti-ic cbuir, the limbs rigid, the expression of th? face (but for tho discolorationa of the akin) un- changed. The rig r of the body was a matter of comment and surprise among tho physicians. The jaw had not fallen and tbe pleasant exuression with which Kemmlcv had tho witne-TS ;is he entered the execution room still lin- gered about the features. Tho examination of the brain showed that it w.ib hardened din-otly under the spot where the electric current had come in contact with tho skull and that tho blood at that spot was hardened, showing that the current hud had action direct on tho brain. The follow in? i> nn editorial which Dr. George F. Shrady, editor of the Medical Uncord, of New York, tele- graphed last that journal: "The lengthened of regard- ing tho efficiency of electricity as a means of executing criminals has been finally terminated in tho legal killing of Kemmler. As was reasonably antic- ipated death was instantaneous and so far as can be judged the unfortunate subject of tho experiment died without pain. The spectacle presented was, however, by no moans edifying to such as hope for improvements of the old methods. we allow that electricity has been a success as far as the killing is concerned, wo must admit that we have gained little if anything over the ordinary method of execution by hang- ing. The preliminaries of electro-than- isia are far from pleasant to contem- plate. Alongside of those for hanging are pretentiously horrible. There .s something more than weird in tho preparation of the machine, tho delib- erate fixation of the villain, tho adjust- aient of tho electrode a-.il the thousand leaths in contemplating one, which moro than offsets the quivk though iamnable 'taking olf.' The horrors, though hidden, are nevertheless felt. There is something else to be thought of than the mere quickness of death. While the latter might have been tri- umphantly done, the agony of the crimi- nal during the preparations must be terrible as compared with that of hang- ing." "Tho experience in ibeKemrnlercase, in spito of all tho precautions taken, have shown many difficulties in tbe way of a general adoption of the method. It is far from simple in its application. It requires elaborate and careful prepara- tions: it multiplies machinery, which, without expert manipulation, is liable to fail in its working and bring aboul disastrous results; it may bo a source of Lucerne.

After a full dress parade on the drill grounds and an exhibition drill by the Chicago Zou- aves there was a recess in tho pro- gramme. Last iiicht about S 000 people gath-. ered on tho lake front to witness the conferring of tho degree of chivalry and the display of fireworks There wore a number of patriarchs candidates for the degree, as well as one civilian. May- or The were conferred by four younir ladies of Paducah, Kv. They were artirM in white with black velvet embroidered capes, faced with scarlet silk. The first lady fastened the golden spurs to tho Ije-ilsof the can- didate's bjoK tho "oeond presented the chovaliei's sword, tho third the steel gauntlet, and the fourth a silken glove.

The particulars of a bloody and fatal en- counter growing out of a dispute over the ownership of certain lands in Gun- nison County have just been received. Tbe disputants were named Thomas Welch and Alexander Lavelle. While Lavellc and five helpers wer--; cutting hay they were attacked by Vi'clch, his son and three other men. Both parties were fully armed and in the mcleo about 100 shots were exchansed. Welch's son and Alexander Lavelle were killed out- right. Charles Purham was shot three and will die.

The recent visit of Mr. Blaine to the President at Cape May Point was not altogether of a social nature. There was a prolonged conference en the seal fisheries question and reciprocity. Mr. Blaine is reported on good authority as holding the doc- trine that the claims of tho Government to regard Behring as a closed water, like the Delaware or Chesapeake Bay, can not be successfully maintained, while the President claims it is United States property, acquired by treaty and purchase and must be held at all hazards. Mr. Blaine, being tho guest of tho President, did not press his views, but will at future Cabinet councils on tho subject. Thero were radical differences of opinion on the reciprocity question, and instead of Mr. Blaine being won over to tho President ho is further from him than before tho C.ipo May Point meeting Thuro seems to be small chance of concession IMIOUST'I on either side to formuUte any administration policy. _ WIDESI'KEAD HUIN. Immense to Near Wuii- tren) by n Cyclone. MOXTHUAI. Aug. 7. A cyclone of un- paralleled violence swept over Lake St. Louis and the St. Lawrence river in tho vicinity of Montreal Tuesday evening, doing great damage on land and water. At the n oment the storm burst, the principal event of the canoe meeting at Isle Cadieux tho race for first class yachts was being sailed. Tho eisht competing yachts wore a mile out on the lake when suddenly the sky grew black and the wind swept down the lake with terrific violence and in- stantly every yacht in tho race was up- set. It is not known how many, if any, were drowned. At Valico, Point Claire, St. Ann and Dorval great damage was dono to prop- erty Houses were unroofed and bams struck bv lightning, while many small buildings were swept completely away. At Lachine the greatest damage was done. There the immense building of the Dominion Bridge Company and tho equally large structures of the Canadian, screw and barbed wire factories wero unroofed and left in ruins. ON Til IS DIAMOND.

Rodenbsugh, Influential politician and prominent contractor, has for soveaal years had tho impression that he should soundly thrash a carpenter named John Willis- ton for some old irrudsre contracted while tho latter wus in his employ. By circumstance the feud was recent- ly aggravated and a casual meeting on the street Tuesday afternoon revealed to Rodonbaugh that recipro- cated his pugilistic feeling. They quietly walked touothor to the nearest woods and, without a witness, fought with their fists to a tini-h. Bleeding and dirty, they thon as quietly walked back, secured a supply of raw bfof and court plaster and then drank together.
