in which the crime was committed should be tbe executioner and in tins manner the un pleasant duty woul4 be distributed about tho State and not all of it put upon the Warden Inasmuch as the execution build ing has been orected at tho State Peniten tiary it may ba well enough to have tho executions performed thtao bnfe let the Sheriir of tho county in whichvtho crime is committed do it and lot that

publican vote in all tho districts examined was very much less in other words what is called the great Democratic victory in tho Northern States is a victory due to tho fact that tho away from tho
