Wakhinoton CITY, May UL- Th* application for a writ of error In tho « Aw* of Ketnnder, tinder wntcnce of death by slectri< icy, was heard in tho nu premed rtirt of the United Ste bis Tuesday. Boger M. Sherman, counsel for Kennnler, who made I In* np|il nation, app anal for the condemned murderer. He baaed hit* argument on the fourteenth amendment to the federal constitution, which provide* that: “No state shall make or enforce any law which atlatl abridge the* privilege* or immunities of citizens of the United Status; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law," and on theeighth amendment which provide* that “cruel and unusual punishments shall hoi lie inflicted." Every •eat in the court room was filled, but there wan no crowding such as prevailed Monday wheu Ute case was to have linen heard. Ex Attorney General Garland, ex Sec re tary Bayard, several senators and repre sentatives, and Attorney General Tabor, of the state of New York, were within the liar of the court. A Cruel and I nu*ti*I Penalty. Mr. Sherman explained the circum stances in which the writ of error was brought. “We aiguille," he said, “with entire, that the determination of questions whi< h the decision* of this oourt have left open will not tie reached In this case upon the present motion, hut upon the return of tis writ and in due ooursc of law. ’ Mr. Sherman contended that the infliction of death by electrtcity was cruet and unusual, and. therefore, without dtie protest of law. He held that the question what, in the stat# of New Y ork is a cruel and unusual punishment for the crime of murder, is one of feller ai oognl/ame under the fourteenth amendment, although it involve* the co*»«t ruction of the Mate constitution, and th# supreme court is at liberty to differ from the court of appeal* ujmui It. Tile Pawer af the Warden. Mr. Sherman also held thai the warden of th# penitentiary at Auburn was given too great db* ret ion by the law. It con fern* I upon him a power which ii ad here U lf ore is in lie I) confided to the court. He contended thut th# effet t of the four Leeulh amendment was to fix the law as It wa* in I**id, ami to prohibit any change by the states which was then unusual, because cruel, or which was not of the nature of men- remedial and admi nisi retire proms. Tile provisions of the New York ft atule for solitary confinement, for concealment of th# day of death from the prisoner, leaving its determination to the warden, he claimed w ere not to be sustained by the common law, hut were in violation of the fourteenth amendment, Heath by Electricity. In discussing the question ss to the oom-psrali e humanity of the electric current aud the rope, Mr. Sherman held that the electrical law gave the warden no discretion in the matter of the application of the electric current. Ile was obliged to continue the current until the criminal dead. The wan I en might use the current for a vu«| if necessary, until it killed U had lieen shown that not electricity, hut a series of nervous shocks, was to cause death Mr Hherumn gave a limn ber of instances of the Infliction of death by electricity to show that a man would not lie instantly kill»*t by the application provided for under tin* New York law He believed that if a current of electricity wet * cotitinmmdy applied to Kemmler it would be diffused over hi* surface. The MSI ult would undoubtedly be that, to an extent, the criminal would become part of the circuit, ami that his skull and skin would lend a resistance to the current Tbs supreme court reserved its iW-dsioa, , and adjourned until Friday.
