THE EXECUTION OF CRIMINALS.
The bill of Senator Crandall providing
that the execution of a criminal shall tako
place within the walls of ono of the State
Prisons is worthy of all commendation.
The Record-Uxion years ago urged the
passage of such a measure, and very fre
quently this journal has set out in detail
the reasons underlying and maintaining
New York is th^first State in the
Union, we believe, W*i has adopted the
policy and abolished public executions.
This recent example of the Empiro State
ought to have much weight with the
present Legislature in considering this
matter. Wo apprehend that outside of a
few newspaper men who wish to cater to
a morbid if not a depraved taste for sen
sationalism, there are no people who will
attempt to defend public executions, ex
cept a few who believe that they aro terri
fying and therefore greatly deterrent in
As a matter of fact, all experience
proves that county executions are bad in
their inlluonco; to witness the agonies of
the condemned upon the scaffold is not j
deterrent. The beliof of tho best in
formed upon the subject is that the sen
sationalism, notorioty and publicity of
public executions —and county execu
tions are nothing less—actually stimulate
the criminal class to take human life for
the brief personal importance that re
sults in case of conviction for murder.
Men actually seek through crime grim
and ghastly publicity and newspaper ex
altation of the name of tho victim of the
The effect of sensational executions
upon the public is immeasurably harm
ful. They numb the sensibilities, dull
the edge of conscience and cater to a taste
that is brutalizing. Every man of obser
vation knows this to be true. We have
but to note the effect of an execution at
any one of the county seats to bo con
vinced of this. People will throng into
the town from all the surrounding coun
try and hover about the walls of the jail
within which the legal taking off is to be
accomplished, though they know that
they will not be permitted to witness the
execution. Half of the population of the
town will desert business and fill the
streets in the vicinity of the prison;
youths and men and even -women and
children will seek high points of vantage
upon housetops and in trees in the hope
to catch even tho faintest glimpse of tho
instrument of death. That such scenes
are demoralizing, such excitation of tlie
brutal taste debasing, goes without say
But there are other reasons why Sena
tor Crandall's bill should pass. It pro
vides that the execution shall take place
within one of the State prisons, and be
witnessed only by the Warden, the Attor
ney-General and a physician, and shall
take placo in the presouco of twelve repu
table citizens of the State, and in the
presence of any two clergymen the con
demned may select, aud any five of his
friends he may name, together with such
peace officers as the Warden may choose
as additional witnesses. The condemned
must be removed to the State prison at
least ten days prior to the day named in
the warrant of execution. The law, tho
faculty and tho people are thus repre
sented at tho execution by a sufficient
number of witnesses.
The week of agonizing preparation
usual at county jails is thus avoided;
sickly sentimentalists are deprived of the
opportunity to moan over the soul of the
condemned, and against weak-minded
women is closed the privilcgo of fawn
ing upon the murderer, and showering
him with tears and attentions that
make the gorge of the decent man rise in
disgust. The couuties are saved the ex
pense of executive preparations, of the
erection of scaffolds and the employment
of guards and the like. Instead of fifty
three scad-olds baring their ghastly arms
in the State, there will be but two; in
stead of the work of bungling execution
ers and horrifying scenes like that en
acted at Martinez a few years
ago, the executions will be skillfully per
formed by men who are taught just
how to discharge the disagreeable office
with th* least possible* suffering to the
victim. Instead of the upturning of com
munities by the excitement and horrid
sensationalism incident to the county exe
cutions, there will be peace, absence of
excitement and no stir in county, city or
town because a criminal pays his debt.
The execution will, moreover, be de
prived of its dramatic eflect and criminals
will not wish to pose upon the scaffold as i
now. Tho baser Instincts of our natures
will not be stimulated, our morbid tastes
cultivated nor the brutal element in man
We trust that Mr. Crandall's bill will
become law ; that it will not bo antago
nized by sentimentalists nor opposeel by
those who mistakenly hold that the pres- i
ent system is more deterent of crime. I
Tho criminals sock notoriety as soon |
as the law fastens upon them. They like |
nothing better than the dramatic position
tbey occupy, and when it becomes tragic
they hold in their own and tho estimation
of their class a position little less than j
heroic, and that is envied by their kind. |
All this is wrong; from tho hour of final j
condemnation the prisoner should be ]
treated as civilly dead, anel be sequestered
as mue;h as possible from public view.
We liko the French system, that from the
time of the pronouncing of sentence blots
out oven the name of the prisoner and
knows hi n - only by a numlier; that treats
him as to all intents dead, and need
ing only the formal office of the exe
cutioner. But where the French system
falls short is in the publio execution of
the condemned. We have advanced be
yond that, and provide a gallows for every
county. Let us still further progress anel
set up but two, and those within the walls
of tlie Statu Prisons, far from public gaze
anel removed from centers of population
and tho field of sensationalism.
MR. HUNTINGTON'S LETTER.
Elsewhere we publish a letter by Mr.
C. P. Huntington to a gentleman in Sun
Francisco, which is intended to and docs
brush away misapprehension concerning
the relations of tho Central Pacific Rail
road to the Federal Government, and
which corrects errors that appear to have
been industriously propagated.
It ought not to be necessary for Mr.
Huntington at this lato day to travel over
historical ground, and to re-state the tacts
and point out the economies in this mat
tor of the adjustment proposed between
the Government and the Central Pacific
j Railroad Company. But it is rendered
necessary by persistent misrepresentation
in certain quarters, and because there has
been an evident studied effort to cultivate
a prejudice, not to say animosity, that wo
had supposed to have gone the way of ex
Mr. Huntington, in a few cogent and
simple but forcible sentences, presents
tho economics of the whole question.
Tlie Government has not only lost noth
ing by any aid it gave to the initial trans
continental railway, but it has been au
infinite gainer in a multiplicity of ways,
to a few of which the letter refers. It has
not only been a gainer as a Government,
| but all the people of tho Union to the
humbles!, individual in it have been
the beneficiaries of tlie thought that in
spired the construction of the road, the
courage thai grappled with tho problem
of need, and the executive ability that
brought the line to a speedy completion,
and thereby secured to the nation ines
All this ground has been gone over be
fore, and it has repeatedly been shown
that in no other way has the development
of the country been so much promoted,
the comfort-and convenience of the peo
ple so much conserved, and the nation as
a whole so financially benefited as by the
building of the road. But as the facts of
history are still distorted purposefully,
and the relations of tho road to the Gov
ernment are still persistently misrepre
sented, Mr. Huntington docs well to re
capitulate the truth.
He points out that, aside from tho in
equitable competition erected by the Gov
ernment, the road has immensely les
sened the Government output for service,
has developed wasto Territories into
States, given new values to Government
lands and opened up homes to a vast mul
titude, and that the settlement treated of
is one that purposes to deprive the Gov
ernment of no right, that invades no
equity, but secures to it return of its
comparatively small outlay, and that, too,
with interest greater than the Government
would have to pay if it wanted to borrow
Wo commend tho letter to fair and im

so v. hen it indicate*-- a disposition to pro
hibit the use of overhead wires for motive
power transmission for street railways,
and insist upon that which is not yet dis
covered. Tho timid people who urge the
adoption of this idea should remember
that tho moment electrical science evolves
an economic storage battery, or a means
to use underground wires without a ruin
ous loss of power, operators of railway
lines will hasten to avail themselves
of the discovery- Self-interest will
prompt them to it. At present the eco

to use them economically for the elec
trical propulsion of cars. Shall we there

Overhead wire systems are in use in
twenty-seven of the States, on 221 distinct
lines of railway; IS7 cities and towns
have these electrical railways and find
them indispensable. The statistics of the
use of the overhead wires show that there
are fewer accidents from them than from
the driving of horses in the streets, than
from broken sidewalks, than from collis
ions with horse-cars, than from gas-pipes
underground and overhead, than from
use of cables or steam motors to propel
cars, or from use of skates on ice or from
exercising in gvninasinms—all these, in

proportion, of course, to the number of
people engaged in travel and athletics,
etc. The fact is, that because now and
then a mule is killed by an electrical
wire, a house burn eel by a Crossed wire,
or a human life lost on an electrical rail
way line, is no argument Whatever
against the use of the electrical motive
power by moans of overhead wires.

sewing machine, by the use of horse-cars,
bythe application of the expansive power
of steam in engines, by mowers, thresh

some one supplants them with something
that cannot kill ?
It may not be probable that interna
tional copyright will be niado national
policy at this session of the Congress of
the United States. But all progress that
has been matle in its interest is due to the
discussion of the subject by the press,
and the persistent presentation of the
claims made by its friends. It is, there
fore, a subject not to be dropped; it must
be kept moving, and we trust that its ad
vocates will not become disheartened if
Congress aeljonrns without passing the
bill. It has passed one house, and that,
we must not forget, is great gain. Prop
erty in ideas put into book form has to
that extent been recognized bythe na
tional legislature. We have these many
years borne the odium of being tho only
nation of literary tastes that has refuseel
to recognize tho international principle
as applicable to books —that is, ideas
made material in book form. We believe
that reproach will be early removed from
the nation, and that we will conform to
the *sell-known economic principles in
force in other nations. That is, that wo
have no right to pilfer from the property
of a foreign author, hut that we should
grant to him all protective privileges
nocossary to securo him in the enjoyment
of his property in this country, that his
nation will guarantee to our authors'
works in that country. That is a recip
rocal system tbat gives us the benefit of
authorship and genius abroad, and to
others the benefit of the authorship and
genius of Americans. It is not cheaper
to steal ideas in book form than to ex
ehango them, and besides it is not honest
to take them without compensation. It
is no excuse for literary theft that the
victim happens to bo a stranger.
Mr. Lacey has a bill in tho Assembly
to limit land-holdings by individuals or
corporations. Now, since Senator Wil
son is so earnest an enomy of monop
olies, he may be expected to favor Mr.
Lacoy's bill regardless of tho extent of
his own landed possessions. It is an
opportunity that he certainly will not
neglect, to prove tho faith that is in him.
