Many reports have Ikx-ii circulated to the

He bewailed bitterly what he called the in

Mr. George Dickinson of the Society of

THE DAY OF EXECUTION.
Yesterday, the day appointed for the exc

veiled by a heavy fog for some hours after
daylight To the superstitious this was na-

In the vicinity were crowded with people
nnxious to see the sad spectacle. For an
lmur before noon the entrances to the Jail
wcrebcMiigcd by crowds, with and without
admission cards. Not only this, but all over
the city people on house tops and eminences
looked with glasses or the naked eye to sec

in" to the prominence of the County Jail
"rounds the melancholy proceedings were
visible from almost all parts of the city, and
thousands availed themselves of the oppor
tunity of seeing the law's victim dropped
fnmi earth to eternity.
i . ...i,.r. nVWlr the excitement of
AWUV muiw s. w.v -
tl,P thousands who failed to get admission
was intense. The Sheriff, Deputy Sheriffs
and peace officers were besieged with appli
cations for passes, and scores of men and
children shouted bimultaneously for the open
nm. to the iudicial slaughter. W c regret
to be compelled to ray that at least one half
nf the vast concourse which viewed tnc spec
tacle from outside iwints was composed of
children of both sexes. It is perhaps one of
the unavoidable associations of such scenes,
and must be expected as long as the law de
mands life for life, blood for blood; but it is
none the less painful because usual.
About eleven minutes of twelve o'clock the
east gates of the jail was opened, and then
commenced fierce crowding and pushing for
speedy admission to the public spectacle.
The crowd pressed desperately to
wards the entrance where three
deputies were engaged in maintaining
order and taking entrance cards. A stranger
would have imagined a popular circus was
about exhibiting so clamorous and lively was
the crowd. The cry of "Show your tickets,
"entlcmen," was varied by constant assu
ranees from tlic officers "That there was no
hurry, the man was still in jail," and "The
execution would not take place for some
time." One man rushed breathlessly up to
the gate, after the crowd had been admitted,
and anxiously demanded, "Is he hung yei,
and on being told he yet lived, smiled pleas

"if the Sheriff would charge one dollar
i..-i .. m-.mlil make more money and le
less bothered with a crowd" would bc a good
plan for adoption at the next execution
.which we hope will never take place.
" Finally the spectators were all admitted
and then began the anxious waiting for the
doomed man, who was at this time receiving
the last sad rites of his religion from Father
LahmciL The Sheriff's deputies kept the
approach to the scaffold clear of spectators
and but a few besides tnc omccrs oi uic iav.
were permitted to be near it
At 12-15 P. ni. Dickson left the jail, mv-
norted br Fatlier Laigneil, and accompanied
by Sheriff McFarland and Deputies Palmer
and Maloney. He asccnaca ine scanoiu
more firmly than any of his escort, and when
sitting under the rope he maintained a digni
fied composure which his bitterest enemies
must have admired. The prisoner wore a
black suit, black hat and white shirt. As he
ascended the steps of the scaffold he unbut
toned his vest to let his last throbbings of life
be unrestrained. He sat coolly for some
time, every one remarking how well he look
ed, the only evidence of his connncment be
ing a little paleness, while his burly form
never showed to better advantage.
After resting a few mutates, the prisoner
knelt with the attendant priest and spent a
abort tiate la prayer. After these devotions
were condaded be was again seated, until the
Sheriff comaaenced to read the transcript of
the Court proceedings, to which he listened
Here the audience was again disappointed,
so far as any show of feeling by the condemn
ed man was concerned. When the Sheriff
reached the part referring to the sentence of
death, the only naasaal movement was the
violent winking of the prisoner's eyes, as he
appeared to be keeping back uncontrollable
After the sentence was read and the pris
oner had aaawercd the usual inquiries and
declined to say anything to the spectaton,
Father Laigneil took hklcaveof the prisoner, J
twice embracing him tenderly. Deputy
SheriffPahmer handed the cnlprit a glass of
water of which he drank heartily, and the
officers took their leave. The executioner,
, then approached the die scaffold, led
by Depnty Sheriff Voss. He was enrekiprf
in a black domino surmounted by a black
hood, and public curiosity waspiooedfix
once, as the sharpest eyes idled to discover
the identity of the masked instnuaeat of the
law's vengeance. Deputy ShcriffPalmerpBt
the black cap over the prisoner's head and
carefully adjusted the rope aronad the neck:
His hands were then secured behind him with
a white handkerchief, while a strap did the
same service at his ankles. The Depnty
Sheriff stepped aside, the executioner palled,
the lever, the heavy door fell and William
Dickson passed away. The murdered ped
lcr was avenged.
As he ell,the rope in some unaccountable
way slipped so that the knot was at the
lack of the head instead of behind the ear,
as at first placed. It was naturally supposed
that his death would lie slow and painful, bat
the spectators were spared even the agony
usually exhibited on such occasions, and the
Iwly hung without a straggle for twenty-five
minutes, when it was gently lowered, and,
after examination, life pronounced ex
tinct and the remains were deposited in a
neat coffin and given in charge of Father
Laigniel for burial in the Catholic ccmery.
White the body was suspended, a corps of
physicians, Doctors Jones, Thomas, Stiles,
Callahan, Xeclcy and Fields among the
number, made examinations every half
minutes, which will be found below:

As the car containing the remains passed
out of the gate, most of the spectators dis

the spectators had left and nothing remained
of the recent scene but the ghastly gallows.
William Dickson, according to his pwn
reiort, was liorn in IJustleton, Pa., Jn 1830,
and, until 13 years of age, lived there. After
that he lived in Philadelphia for six years,
and made a living as a wagoner. He then
spent three years on a New Bedford whaler,
and, after becoming 22 years of age, spent
seven vears as a seaman in the merchant
service between .Philadelphia and the-West-
Imlic. In 18C2 he worked in iSorris' car
shops, in Philadelphia; and this part of his
statement Is believed, as letters have been re-,
ceived endorsing this fragment. In 1863 he
joined the Sixth Pennsylvania cavalry, and
in 1SG1 was captured in the Shenandoah
Valley, and confined Micceively inJlich
mond, Amlcrhonvillc and Milan, Ga., from
the lx-t place escaping. He came to Kansas
in 1SG5, and was engaged in different busi
nesses until 1867, when he was arrested for
horse-stealing and sentenced to three years in
the Penitentiary. He hcrved out his term,
learning, while there,' the trade of "stone1
cutting. He was out of the Penitentiary two

entirely. While in the Penitentiary he made
a confidant of one of the inmates, and from
what this man tells, his name is assumed,
his capture and escape myths, and it is more
than probable he was engaged in more than
one piratical expedition in distant seas.' This
man was afraid to tell all he knew while
Dickxm lived, but perhaps now can throw
additional light on the past history of Wil
The murder of the unoflending edler is
still fresh in the memory of our citizens.
The murdered man was industrious and hon-c-t,
and his supposed murderer a late Peni

whom the murdered man had been one, were
terribly incensed at the brutal roadside as
sassination, but to their credit bc it said they
let the law have its course. Dickson had a
trial by a jury of the bet citizens of Leaven'
worth, and their verdict condemned him lo
death. Though no eye saw the deed, yet
there were the unerring circumstances which
pointed to him as the murderer. The sen

a A sad accident occurred on the racing
grounds west of town on Saturday resulting
in the death of Henry 3Inrray a stone cutter
who lived on South Fork. Mr. Murray rode
a spirited horse to the grounds though lie did
not intend to take part in the races. After
witnessing one or two, however, he concluded
to try the mettle of his animal, which he did,
coming out well ahead in a match with two
other hon-es. Shortly thereafter seeing an
other race starting out he dashed fttriotisly
afterthc ninnins horses, remarking as he
did so that he w ould beat them out. As, tlicy
passed the judtrcs' stand, at the end of the
course, one of the horses of the regular race
moved to the right, while .Murray's horse,
'which had the inside track, went rapidly
ahead in a more direct line. The result was
a collision, which threw Mr. Murray violent
ly upward, he reaching the ground as his
falling horse crushed him under, rolling en
tirely over him. He was taken up insensible
and conveved to the hall in Doolittlc's block.
Medical aid was summoned, but the case was
