Arguments Favoring Us Abolition Before a Seuate Committee. Ainwv, May 7—The committee on judiciary affairs of the senate gave a hearing yesterday afternoon upon lieu. Curtis' bill to almlish the death (wnalty. Mr. A VV Dowell said that the laws of capital punishment were made to obtain the safety of the public. Under the present laws juries were afraid to convict pardons were granted:    ap|»eals taken:    insanity claimed and other things conspired to the defeat of what he ttelieved to I* judicial murder He quoted a case of a woman who was hanged (Margaret Houghtaling) and who flft«-eo years after wa* declared aud proved innocent. For such judicial murder there wa* no redress, aud if the punishment had been life imprisonment the woiuau would have beeu alive to-day. A similar case wa* the hanging of Dr. Hamilton, and Mill another of a man named Boynton, both in other states. J edge William ll. Arnoux of the State Bar MHnciation said that he wa* there without much preparation. l>e*athan mu years ago England had over JOU crimea punishable by death. Now there waaonly one ll showed an advance of civilization and that is what we should do lf it could lie argued that the influence of hanging wa* beneficial, theu it could tie also ar gued that lynching or shooting down murderers were beneficial. The great alate of New York could well afford to take the initiative move in this matter. Judge learned of the supreme court and Editor Dana of The Sun sent letters favoring the bill.
