Electrician Davis made this statement as to the execution:
'I used J.7M volts of electricity, turning it into the body at full voltage for
seven seconds and then Hlowly reducing it for forty-five seconds: then I threw
the full voltage on again tor eight seconds. Then, at the suggestion of Doctor

rr.d a half minutes past 7 o'clock this morn
ing.. He "went to the chair without mani
festing any sign of fear nnd was shocked to
death by 1.705 volt of elsctricitv. His body
was burled this evening in the prison lot
next to Fort Hill Cemetery, not far from
the spot where the body of "William. H.

As Czolgosz sat In the electric chair and
received the shock he convulsively grasped
the arms of the chair and the first finger
of his right hand (the trigger finger) was
turned under his palm. When they lifted
him to the operating table the finger was
not bent back Into shape, and after rigor
rr.crtls set In It was left' as it stiffened.
With this mark of his crime upon him. the
assassin went to his last resting place.
He met his fate in exactly the same man
ner: as have the majority of murderers in
this. Bute, showing no particular sign of
tear, but, in fact, doing what few of them
have done talking to the witnesses while
he was being strapped in the chair.

slowly the electrician threw the switch

It was cut off entirely.
Then, Just as it bad reached that point,
he threw the lever back again for two or

When it was turned off again Doctor Mac

more the body became rigid. At 7:15 the
current was turned off for good.

he entered the execution-room this morning

atone arch, and as the great iron door
swung behind him he was beside the elec-

for the witnesses, and Is lighted with sever-
al windows placed high In the walls. In one
corner of the wall is the closet in which the
keyboard Is situated and in which Electri
cian Davis stood when be switched the cur
The preliminaries were exactly like those
of every other execution. The witnesses
gathered In the office of the Warden on the
second, floor of the prison at 6:45. At a
few minutes before 7 the witnesses were
told to quickly follow the Warden and
State Superintendent of Prisons, and after
walking through the long corridor took
their places silently beside the death chair
In the execution-room.
The iron door leading to the condemned
cells was closed, but behind It the War
den's assistants were preparing Czolgosz
for death. The Warden . -waited until the
witnesses were scoter1 and then made the
usual formal declaration that those present
In the room were merely there as witnesses
to a legal execution of a murderer, and that
under no circumstances and no matter
what the provocation was any one to leave
his seat or make any disturbance.
When the body of Czolgosz had bean re
moved from the room where he was killed
to the autopry table, Aiiburn prison re
turned to the routine of Its ordinary life.
The prisoners, who bad b en kept locked In
their cells, were released at 7:43 o'clock and
prison work was resumed at once. There
was no excitement among tbe convicts.
Scarcely a hundred people had gathered out
side the prison gate to watch the witnesses
enter and wait until they reappeared. The
witnesses dispersed quickly, some of them
leaving for their homes as early as 0
Prison Superintendent Collins made the
following statement to tbe Associated
"Just consider that within about six
weeks from: the death of his distinguished
victim, Czolgosz was regularly tried, con

despite the fact that tho law compelled us
to give him four weeks to prepare for death.
All has been done !na dignified way, and

ASSASSIN'S LAST WORDS
.Auburn, N. T., Oct. 29. The result of the autopsy make it more difficult than
ever to come to a conclusion as to Czblgosz's true character. Opinions differ
widely among men who have been brought In contact with him here and In
Buffalo. There arc many who consider
low order of Intelligence. But others point to the steady, cool way In which he
m;t his death: to the fact that from the day cf hli arrest until he died he re-
malncd stolidly taciturn, and never uttered a word that could be used against
his accomplices, it he had any, and give him credit for much greater brain pew-
er than popularly supposed.
These men are convinced that the President v.-as shot e the result of an
organized plot, and say Czolgosz displayed great courage In dying with his lips
scaled. Several of the men who saw the execution this morning have expressed
this opinion. "Czolgosz was an anarchist," said one of the witnesses, "and he
died as they always die. without paying a word that would incriminate any of
his co-conspirators. After listening to that man to-day nothing can convince
me that he was not a fairly intelligent man who believed he had sacrificed
himself in order to rave other?."
Seme additional light has been thrown on bis life bv his conversation 4
with his brother Waldeck and his brother-in-law BandowskI last night.
"McKlniey was going around the country shouting prosperity," said Czol-
gosz, "when there was no prosperity for the poor man. I am not afraid to die.
We all have to die some time. I would like the American people to know that
I had no use for priests. My family are all Cathollcs.-and used to go to church
until the hard times of 1SS3. We had been taught by the priests that If we
would pray God would help us along, but It did no good. It did not help us, and
wetopped going to church at that time."
rear of ths chamber throughout tn exe
cution. The clothing and personal effects of the
prisoner were turned, under direction of
Warden Mead, shortly after the execution.
CZOLGOSZ WAS XOT
Naturally, almost the entire attention of
the physicians assigned to hold the autopsy
was directed toward discovering. If possible,
whether the assassin was In any way men
tally irresponsible. The autopsy was con
ducted by Doctor Carlos) F. MacDonald. B.
A. Spltzka and Prison Physician Gerin. The
top of the head was sawed oft through the
thickest part of the skull, which was found
to be of normal thickness, and It was the
unanimous opinion after a microscopical ex
amination that the brain was slightly
abo-e normal. This demonstrated to the
entire satisfaction of the physicians that in
no way was Czolgosz'? mental condition,
except as it might have been perverted,
responsible for the crime.
The autopsy was completed shortly be
fore noon, when the surgeons issued a
statement In part as follows:
"The autopsy occupied over three hours
and embraced the careful examination of
all the bodily organs, Including the brain.
The examination revealed a. perfectly
healthy state of all the organs, including
The body was placed In a black-Klalned
pine coffin, every portion of the anatomy
being replaced under the supervision of
Doctor Gerin and Warden Mead. Shortly
afterwards it was taken to the prison ceme
tery and an extraordinary precaution taken
to completely destroy it. A few days ago,
under the Warden's orders, nn experiment
was made to determine the power of quick
lime In the destruction of flesh and bone,
which was not satisfactory. Warden Mead,
who conferred with some of the physicians
present and determined, In conjunction with
Superintendent Collins, that the purpose of
the law was the destruction of the body. It
was necessary to use quicklime to that end.
Accordingly a carboy of acid was obtained
and poured upon the body in the coffin
after It had been lowered Into the grave,
straw was used In the four corners of the
grave as the earth was put In to give vent
to such gases as might form.
It is the belief of the physicians that the
body was disintegrated within twelve hours
A lengthy report, prepared this afternoon
by the autopsy surgeons, related entirely
to the brain, and was af a highly technical
character. After scientifically describing to
tho minutest detail, the brain of Ihe dead
muroerer, the report concludes as follows:
"No anomalies found. The brain in gen

Father Seemed Slightly Affected
Cleveland. O.. Oct. . Next to the wit
nesses in the death chamber at Auburn
Prison, where Leon Czolgosz's life was
shocked out of existence, there were no
more interested witnesses to the far-away
vindication of Justice than a little group of
men who had gathered In the local office of
the Associated Press to learn of the final
act early to-day. This group Included the
next of kin. the nearest of all human be
ings to the assassin his father and two
brothers and half a dozen of his former
neighbors In this city.
The same seeming Indifference that has
characterized the members of the Czolgosz
family was maintained to the end, and
when tbe statement that Leon Czolgosz
had been put to death was told to the old
man in Polish, his fingers twitched ner
vously for a minute or so. a suspicion of a
tear was seen to come Into his dark eyes,
and he made a reply in Polish to a friend
who acted as Interpreter. The old man's
statement was to the effect that. Inasmuch
as it had to be. it were better 'that it is all
When told of Leon's regret that he had
not seen his father, the assassin's parent
replied pathetically that had he been asked
to go to Auburn he would have done so,
but the news from Auburn was never as
suring, and the father felt that he was
not wanted, hence he remained at home.
The old man hald finally that he would
not have been a witness to the killing of
his son. for the scene would have been
too much fcr his paternal heart
Other than a suspicion of a tear In tbe
father's eye there was no sign of grief
from him. and the two brothers, both
younter than Leon, began to ask as to the
probable palnfulness of the electrocution.
The party did not wait to hear details, and
soon left for their homes, the father of the
assassin to his dally work In one of the
city's parks, the two brothers' to their re

CZOLGOSZ NOT TRUTHFUL.
Samples of the Falsehoods in
Which He Was Caught.
Auburn. N. Y., Oct. 29. In his interview
with Superintendent Collins last night
Czolgosz made another explanation of his
visit to Chicago Just before he went to
Buffalo, but later admitted that he had
lied. He sold that when he reached Chicago
a boy whom he did not know approached
blm at the depot and handed him a packet
of money. He said the money was for
ue on the Buffalo trip, but that he never
knew who sent It to him or the Identity of
the lad who' delivered It. He then explained
that most of the meetings of anarchists
that he attended at Cleveland were held
in saloons designated by an anarchist news
paper. Half nn hour later, when the su
perintendent called In the brother-in-law of
the prisoner, he brought up the subject
again and said:
"How about that money you got at Chi
cago?" "What money?" asked the prisoner.
"Why. the money you told me about here,
earlier In the evening." said the superin
tendent. "Did I tell you that? I have forgotten if
I did. I did not get any money. If I said
so It was not true."
Another demonstration of the many
falsehoods told by the prisoner was, fur
nished by Waldeck Czolgosz. He positively
assured Warden Mead that his brother
Leon could read and write. In direct con
tradiction of the oft-repeated claim of tho
prisoner that lie was illiterate.

THINK JOHNSON DROWNED.
Details of River Tragedy Brought
by Steamer India Girens.
Further details of the fight between Mate
David Davles of No. 1332 Wash street and
Edward Johnston, a negro roustabout, on
the steamer India Givens Saturday evening,
which resulted in the death of Daviea
and the probable drowning of Johnston,
were brought to St. Louis yesterday by the
officers and crew of that boat.
Davles, who was making his firet trip on
the steamer, it is said, found occasion to
reprimand Johnston, who had been drinking
and was In an ugly mood. Johnston is said
to have followed Daviea to the port ride of
the vessel, and. after the departure of First
Mate Kuhne to another part of the boat,
the negro addressed some remark to Davles.
A moment later the negro was seen to strike
Davles on the forehead. Without uttering
a cry. Davles fell backward Into the river.
First Mate Kuhne ran to the upper deck
of the boat and cried to Captain Shell Ruby
to stop the engines and lower a skiff. Mean
time Johnston rushed to a pile of empty
chicken coops, threw one overboard, then
-jumped Into the river after It.
livery enon was maue to nna anu rescue
Davles. An object floating a short distance
from the steamer was sighted by the men
In the boat, and, on pulling up to it. they

He resisted their efforts to drag bim Into
the skiff until both men beat him into sub
mission. When the skiff neared the India
Olvens Johnston drew a revolver, and, point
ing it at the heads of J. King and "Jack-ln-the
Box," the rescuing party, commanded
them to row him to the Illinois bank. In
the struggle to disarm Johnston, all three
men were thrown into the water and the
"Jack-in-the-Box" clunir to the skiff and
after twenty minutes was rescued by the
steamer. Johnston was not seen after the
capsizing of the skiff, and it is generally
believed that he was drowned. The body
of Davles has not been recovered.

The North St. Louis Citizens' Associa

formally the proposed Fair Grounds site
for the North End High School, failed at Us
meeting last night, to take any action In
tne matter, nnen the resolution was of
fered by Secretary James Maccallum it
was opposed by John H. Gundlach. who ar
gued that the Board of Education would
form its own conclusions without regard to
outside suggestions.. President C. C. Crone
then expressed a desire lo have the mat
ter dropped, which was done.
After the meeting advocates of the St.

ed that, after the failure of the Citizens'
Association to Indorse the Fair Grounds
site, there remained only the St. Louis ave
nue district as a site favored by North St.
Loulsans for a high school.
Secretary Maccallum succeeded in having
pasted a resolution that the Municipal As

the opening of Prairie avenue through the
Fair Grounds. This Is necessary, said Mr.
Maccallum and many members of the North.

make possible the proper growth of the
residence section of the North End. The
resolution was carried unanimously.
The opening of Prairie avenue would not
