Mr. Durstou plnoed a plain wooden bottomed chair direutly in front ot the other and different chmr and hade Kpinni- ler sit. upon It. He obeyed readily. There wus no uneasiness about his movements. He seated himself leisurely. There was no nervous tension apparent; indeed not nearly so much as among the men about him. was apparently the com- posed person in the room. The warden took a placet beside Kemmler after tho latter had become sealed in (lie kitchen chair placed for him, resting his arm over t' e prisoner's shoulder on the chair back. 1 olding his hat in his hand and standing there iu the silent chamber, the state's i-tticcr presented the coudunied man to ii ose present, introduced him indeed, and tlii> what he said: -Nciw, gentlemen, this is William Kfinmler I have just read the warrant to him and told him Umt he has got to die, and if he has anything to say he will any it." There was surprise amongthose present. There was at that moment aud place a aiiock from sneh a formality. Kemmler, however, seemed gratified be- Dr. Daniel should do the work with the surgeon's knile, because of his long experi- ence in performing autopsies on persons killed by electricity. The Flexli Was Burned, Both Dr. DauiflumlDr. Jenkinsstrippec off their coats und vests and the surgeon's case was opened and the glittering arraj of knives and sawa brought out. The body was lifted from the chair and placec on the table in the centre of the room. Ii still preserved its rigidity. A smal wooden box was placed under the head to support it and the limbs were straightene( out as far as possible. Then a convic was summoned from the prison to take of the clothing. The re.moval revealed i bcfir near nearly five, inches in diamete where the second electrode had presset again-.! the base of the spine, showing that the current had burned through into the He-h The body looked healthy anc well nourished. A Formal KxAtntiiatlon. Dr. Shrady at this point suggested the milking the examination as formal as though it was to be taken fo criminal investigation, and volunteered to act ,-t.s .secretary and take the report in shnr'haml This was agreed upon anc the first step taken was to bind a clinica thermometer to the nape of the neck anc take the temperature. The record demon MrnU'd that the man was dead beyond al question. The table on snggestioii was nun ed over to tho corner of the eel directly under the windows where a bette: light could be had. When it was in posi tiou a general survey of the body was taken aud its external condition carefully noted. The Operation Begnn. Then Dr. Jenkins took his surgeon': knife and began operations. The bod; was cut open. The heart, lungs and othe: organs were taken out and their condition noted carefully. They were all put in Mueller's fluid for preservation and futun examination. When the organs in thi trunk of the body had been examinee carefully, the top of the skull re moved and the brain taken out. This the most interesting feature of the exami nation as the theory on Inch the claim of greater humanity for this method o execution are based is the theory that th electric current paralyzes the brain in btantly and thus destroys all sensation The physicians found evidence of th effect of the current on the formation o the skull, on the blood and on the brai tissue directly beneath the point of con i i i vi 11 LVJUI j wructii ll UUt Ut Ul UUL cause he had an opportunity to speak, but I tact whlch sati.sfied them that tha paralysi u? the moved bjick the of the brain was inimcdiat. glanced about thb half circle of curious or pitying faci-> before liirn. ft-et wide apart upon tlie -tone flour, wiih a hand on either kuoe and akimbo, the simple fellow spoke.

Over the left hemisphere, one-third of an inch left of the medium line, there was a deep carbonized spot corresponding with ihe carbonized portion of the calvarium. This charred spot corresponds to the dura areas of dull color previously described.

AUBURN, Aug. following is a copy of an editorial which Dr. George F. Shrady, editor of The Medical Record nf New York city, telegraphed last night to that journal: The lengthened agony of suspense re- garding the efficiency of electricity as a means of executing criminals has been finally terminated in the legal killing of Keminler. As was reasonablyanticiuitud death was instantaneous, and so far as can be judged, the unfortunate subject of the experiment died without pain. The spectacle presented was, however, by no means edifying to such as hope for im- provements of the old met h oils. Al- though Hcience has triumphed, the ques- tion of the humanity of the act is still an open one. But shall we call it a triumph when the object obtained was the killing of a fellow being? Heretofore the proudest claim of science has been to save, or at least prolong, human life and insure for its possessor tho greatest enjoyment of its many bounties In this instance it has been plainly di- verted from its course under a paradox- ical plea of high humanity. And yet men of science have lent th'-ir best efforts in this direction to -or thc whims of a few cranks and who imagined they coul m.t v.- murder a fine art and enfoict' i: it an clement of sentimentality which niiirhr, rob ir of its atrocity. While n't- Unit, electricity has been a success us far as the killing is concerned, we must also ndmit that we have gained little if anything tner the ordinary method of execution The preliminaries of electro thanusin are far from pletisaut to contemplate. Along aide of those for hanging they are preten- tiously horrible. There is something more than weird In the preparation of the machine, the de- liberate tix.it ion of the victim, the adjust- ment of tlif electrode and the thousand deaths in cMmu-ntplating one, which more than offset-; quick though d.imnable "taking off." The horrors though hidden are nevertheless felt. There is pomething else to be thought of than the mere quick- ness of death. While the latter might have been triumphantly done, the agony of the criminal during the preparations must be terrible as compared with that of hanging. It becomes H serious question if humanity is not paying too dear a price for instantaneous The awe and mystery of death are intensified a thousand fold in anticipation of what this instrument of subtle power may do as compared with either the noose of tha rope, the grip of the garroter, the smart of the knout, the bore of the bullet or the chop of the ax. And yet to harness the lightning end bolt it through a human body is thought to be one of the advances of the nineteeth century.
