seUlement for all conflicting interests respecting land titles but as time on and Congress continued to delay in this important matter the grievances of theso people brought now recruits to their numbers and after awhile the petty perse cution of many under the cover of knights was systematically inaugurated Presently the organization grew bolder and held meetings in tho mountains id jacent to

poison in tho whisky and the theory that Motto gave the woman poison and then took it himself Both theories aro supported by mere gossip To Dr Townsend the mystery is as great as to everybody else When ho loft his wife she was in good spirits it was arranged by which train she should join him on the steamer Nothing was told at the inquest tonight which throws any light on the mystery The doctors called said they could not posl what poison was used without a post mortem This will bo mado tomorrow There are other points connected with tho mystery Tho VTorci correspondent has au thority

ends with a Sun day Tho Warden has arbitrary powur to defer the execution of Kemmlor until Sun day August 10th It is held that fche law would interfere to prevent the upon the ground that an execution or a process upon Sunday is not legal Directly at this point tho case is touched by that general principle of law that if the sentence under which Kemmler is expected to be killed 1s void in part it must be wholly void Brought to a close application the assumption is that if it is illegal to kill Kemmler on the seventh day of tho week designated then it would be illegal to kill him on any other day of the week The situation it is held would be different if Sunday intervened as a part of the seven days because it would tlien run with the week and bo a part of tho seven days constituting the week As the case stands theweek in which tho sentence is to be executed will not be legally complete because ths week ends on a day void in law Unless there is some general law which may bridire thispoint the entire sentence it is thought will be null and void Kemmler spent today quietly He seemed to have a good appetite and ate three full meais It is now pretty certain that the execu tion will not take place on the first day of the week in which Kcramler hai been finally sentenced to die Undoubtedly this has been his last Sabbath on earth Doubtless no contradiction would be challenged from Warden Durston by tho statement that he does not tonight know the bour of electro cution nor who will be chosen to by when Kemrnlor dies This rhc wife of the warden left the prison to be ab sent until the week after Kemmlcrs death NEW YORK Aug dispatch to the World from Auburn timed a says two hackloads of men were two ago unloaded at the prison gate This looks as though the execution
