Tho execution of Travis Harris, at
Commerce, Missouri, who was sentenced
by the Scott county, Missouri, circuit
court some four weeks ago, to be hung
on the 10th of this mouth, for tho mur
der ol his father-in-law, took placo on
Friday. From Mr. llrccio, a gentleman
who was present ut tlio execution, we
iru that this Is not tho llrst man who
siillered death at tho hands ot Harris, but
that he was licensed of killing another
person, mid had been iu some way al
lowed to go without punishment for It.
Mr. Ilrecse says that while on the scaf
fold, the doomed man was
perfectly cool and collected, evincing
Iu uo manner any dread of the horrible
fate which was In store lor him. lie
maintained thu same stolid ludltlereiicu
throughout, until thu drop tell and he was
launched into eternity. It is said that
there was a very strong effort brought to
bear upon the governor of .Missouri to re
prieve Harris, but It was of uo avail, In
consequence of which, tho throng In nt
tenilaueu at the execution was very
boisterous, mid It was feared that serious
trouble would ensue. Harris Is said to
have many wealthy friends and relatives
hi Scott county, who also niadu every ef
fort to havo his punishment changed from
death to Imprisonment, but they could
not save him.
