The Press says: "It will not inend matters at all to say that there was ig- norant bunirlinjr on the part oi the exe- cutioners: that the- first current v. .1? m t kept on long- or tlif last ciirront too long-. It uas argued in behalf of this mode of execution that death was to be instantaneous, lightninjj-hko, painless, and that the rcaudlin worship atte-ndinjj the dramatic of the nervy murdr-ror to the scalfold was to be done away with, and a secret and mysterious taking off, devoid of sensational to be substituted. The act -went so foolishly far as to pro- hibit the newspapers from publishing the dff.ails of such an a pro- hibition which, by the way, they most properly and complrt'jh ignored. Tho age of burninir at the stako is past: tho ape of burning at the wire will also pass." The World says: "The first experi- ment in electric execution should be the last. Tts results stror.g-ly condemn this tnetbod of Duttinfr criminals to death as very cruel and shocking-. The effect upon the v> as sickening. The effect upon the public is stiil more shocking-. The electric execution law ousrht now be repealed. So long- as it stands, convictions fur capital offenses will be difficult to the point of impossi- bility. Juries will not willingly con- demn mon to death by torture." Wednesday's CY- perynent was a failure, it does not show that this mode of inflictinjr tho death penalty is not a success. The failure was due not to th" system, but the buntr- ling and inefficient way in which the execution was managed. fault was with tho doctors and the electricians. The bung-linp work does not prove that execution by electricity is a failure. It does not warrant a rctuin to the barbar- ity of the fallows. Had the execution been properly and efficiently managed it would have proved tho success of the new system beyond all dispute." L'ncxprot etl Opposition to Vanre. CiiAizi.oTn-., S. C. Aug.

Groans and hisses greeted tbe remarks and the convention was in a tumult. Thecliair- man ruled Father McTiuhe out of order. That gentleman was not to be squelched and again took the floor, sayintr: "The insertion of temperance lessons in school books would turn from the church all German Catholics, who uphold tho church, but want their beer." Father McTighe was again called to order. An excited Boston deleg-ate who attacked the chair was compelled to apologize. The committee on resolu- tions reported, urging legislation in the interest of total abstinence by all of the States in the Union, recommended the establishment of total abstinence socie- ties in every church parish for the ben- efit of children: urges the publica- tion in school books of selections from the utterances of some of the leaders of the Total Abstinence Union.

ISx-Congress- man Converse gave out last night for publication his statement about the Governor Campbell-Lodgo bill embrog- lio. Ue says that young Allen W. Thurman did tell him that Governor Campbell had told him (Thurman) that he (Campbell) intended in his protest mooting speech to say thai if the Lodge bill passed and its enforcement was at- tempted in Ohio, he (Campbell) would call out the militia to prevent its exe- cution. An issue of veracity is thus raised between Converse and Thurraan. Rejoiclnp: Over thr Rj-crimc. BITEXOS Aug. 3.

THE SUBSTITUTE For the Kli-ctlon How II Klir.TH fr.MU tlie .M.ms- ure. .x. Aug. Mr. Hoar, from tho Committee on Privileges and Elec- tions, yesterday reported to the Senate a substitute for the Fcder.il Election bill, which passed the House last month. The substitute varies from the Lodge bill in some important particulars, as follows: Tho army at the pulls suction of tho Lodce bill, or r.ither that section which in effect incorporates the arnu at the is omitted from tno Senate bill. Tho of election of members for Congress issued by the 6 la to boards of convassors, which under tho House bill are to be accepted by tho clerk of tho Houso. under the Senate may ho contested and are subiect to inal adjudication before the United States Circuit Court judges. The house the Senate committee bill ,irvl United States marshals arc permuted to select juries. The amended bill does not meet with the approval of all Ucioubliwin members of the committep, several of them being dissatisfied with some fea turos of it. They hope, though, to se- cure still further modifications before the measure is put upon its i'lndl pas- sage in the Senate.
