Hohion. May 21 (12:20 A. M.l-Clarenca
V. T. (llcheson, n forrm-r Hnptlst clergy
man, the self confessed murderer of Miss
Avis V. Llnncll, wns put to death by
electricity in the State prison at Charlrc-
town early this morning.
At 12:10:02 o'clock the electrician threw
a lever that sent a current of electricity
through the condemned man's body as
he sat strapped in the chiar.
The first shock caused instant death
and after an examination by the physician
in attendance, Ilicheson was pronounced
legally dead at 12:17.
Ilicheson went to his death with com
posure, ns he said ho would. He stepped
from his cell into the corridor and through
a door into the death chamber. When ho
had taken thirteen paces ho was in front
of tho electric chair. He took his seat
in it and the straps and electrldes wero
quickly put in place.
Thn four guards who had accompanied
liim from, his cell and Chaplain Stehhins
who preceded liim into tho room, stopped
Warden Bridges rallied ids conn as a
signal and in the next second Itichnson's
soul had left his body.
After Uichcson's deathit was announced
that among the envelopes sent to tho
prison addressed to the condemned man
was one which contained n blank sheet
of paper in which was a small qunntity
of a white powder.
Warden Bridges had some of iianalytred
nnd the powder proved to bo cyanide of
IHttnssium, the same poison thai Kiehesoii
used to encompass the death of Avi
Linnoll. The envelope was postmarked
New York city. Had the powder reached
Hicheson ho could have cotnmlftoi1
The envelope was stamped at Sta
tion N. New York city, nt 3 I1. M. on
May IP. The powder Itself was In a
smaller envelope labelled "Headache
powders'. ' There was no clue to tho
send r and Lawyer Morse advised War
den lltlducs to make the fact public
that It was the same deadly polron that
killed Avis Linnoll.
Hicheson was ready to meet nls fate
when the guards went to his cell. IIo
walked erect and unnrfilrtcd. bill with
the guards around him. He looked di
rectly ahead nnd after reaching the
chair, sat down In ll and then clorrd
his eyes, never to reopen them.
After the straps had been adjusted
across his thighs. legs, forearms and
chest and before the death dealing cur
rrnt of 1.900 volts was turned on, Rich
rson was asked a scries of questions by
the Rev. Herbert S. Johnson, his spirit
ual adviser. To one he replied In b dis
"God will take care of my soul and I
pray for all. I forgive everybody."
To tho last of the questions, which
"Are you willing to die for Jesus s
sake?" Hicheson replied In an fei
tone: "I am willing to dle."
Italn was beating down when the wk
uesses nnd the prison officials walked
quietly down the yard to the death
house. As they nrared the fatal build-
Ing they could hear tho voices of me-
singing. It was Hicheson nnd the Iw i
clergymen kneeling In the death cell,
nnd clearly above the nolso of the rain
and the hum of the dynamos could be
heard the closing words of a hymn-

The party entered tho death chamber
as the neighboring clocks were sound
ing the midnight hour.
They hnd been there only a few min

and tho guards stepped Into tho cham
