RecallliiK a crime that Canad a
TreiiieiidouH teatlon In the
United Mtatea When It Flrat Be
From the Hoatou Herald.
"Strike the bell eight 1 Stand by I Fire
the gun! Walkaway with the whip.
"Thia wna the awful order I once heard
given when I wu a boy on an American
mnn-of-wnr. It Bent three aoul mt
eternity. No person who has never wit
nciuH-d an execution nt sea can conceive
fraction of thesolcmnitywhich surrounds
it. The death penalty has been invoked
but very lew times within the history of
the United States navy. It is oneof those
rare events that arc too liable to be
shrouded in mystery and covered with
injustice, which malice or nervousness
mistakes for discipline. The tnigic scene
I witnessed in West Indin waters might
readily be called the harshest of nnnici
without an infraction of the truth. Hut
it was done in the name of dicipliuc, and
while it did not receive the sanction
the government, a board of nnvnl officers
uciuittcd the captnin ol crime; but the
shadow nf thnt execution hung over his
ufter lilc, and he lived in retirement from
the moment he touched American shores
till he died.
"It is forty-eight years ago next Ie
ccmbcr since I witnessed this tragedy on
the ocean," continued the old sailor, who
was Kpinuing this yarn uliout nn expe
rience tit sen. "You see," he run an, "we
were sailing from Liberia to the Unitei
States and were keeping a sharp lookout
for slave trailers. Ours was a sort of
training ship for midshipmen, not like
those we have in these days, but one
that in those early days was regarded as
fit for educating young men in the prne
ticnl details o navigation. I think there
were n little more than n hundred
boys aboard on this voyage, anil I'or
some months we nail enjoyed n pleasant
time without unytluiig startling to re
licve the monotony of asnilor's life. Our
captain wns not a popnltir man. and the
crew olten found fault with his orders
but no one ever dreamed that serious
trouble was brewing until one afternoon
late m November, when wc were stand'
iug head in toward St. Thomas in the
llermuilus. nbout three days sail awav
loir watch on sliuibonril is Irom to
8 o'clock, nml it was on the afternoon of
the 27th of November. It was about
6 o'clock in the evening, and we were
standing nt our posts ns though the shit
was ready tor action. It miuht lie
clearer if I should snv thnt we were at
rcuular drill, which took place every
night at six I was stationed nt one of
the guns back of the main mast. Not hing
unusual had occurred to even suggest to
us that there was anything wrong. All
at once came the order from the captain
"'Ail hands leave tne ininrter deck.
"It was the general rule on shipboard
that the gunners stood at their posts,
even alterthe crew were ordered forward.
So everv man at the guns stood fast. In
a second came the peremptory order:
'"All hnnds fnrwnrd of the mainmast.
"As I moved off I noticed that all the
officers of the vessel save one were con
gregnted about thee nptain in the utter
part of the vessel. 1 he absent midship
man remained nt his ixst nt the lorccas-
tie. A moment Inter another middy was
sent by the captain to tell this hoy that
he desired to speak with him. The two
lads, neither of them 20 years of age,
walked alt together. The officers ol
the ship tiH'iied in two ranks to
receive them, and iinniciliaUly the com
mand. mt ordered the midshipman Irom
the iorvcnstle to he disannul nml put
irons. None ol the ship's crew knew of
the occurrence until Inter, when two of
its iiuiiiIkt were arrested and double
iioilid. No one on the vessel knew the
louaeof this net save the ill'ueis. for
a night anil day almost li e silence ol
denih hung over the ni.iii-ol'-wnr, as it
stood steadily on its coarse. The crew
spoke to one iinoilicr iinilc their lirc.it Ii,
and the ntliccrs walked the deck doulily
aimed. The U rrililc aiitlmrily ofuiinval
. flieir nt sen was to Ik invoked, mid the
Ull souls on biiatd, mosily bovs fresh
from the nnvnl school, were to be awed
bv the scenes hich were to follow these
"It was the second day niter these
men were arrested Ih-Ioic the sugges
tions of mutiny were iiuictly slipH.'d
among the crew and midilks on board.
Nn one hud ever heard of it as n well-de-lined
plot ; but the auspicious of the offi
cers had Isx-n aroused, and death was to
be the iK'iialty. I shall never linnet the
day the drumhead court martial was
railed in the calini to divide the fate of
these men. It didn't take long. When
the sentence of 'juiltv wns rendered to
grntifv the caprice of a vain officer the
men were notified that they had ten
minutes to live. There was no ceremony
nliout the announcement, audit was an
briitallv communicated as possible. The
young Imiv 1H ye.irs of age, who wns
charged with being nniliilioiis to capture
the craft, raise the mutiny and turn it
into a pit iitc ship and comiiianil it him
self, never weakened, although his two
comiiiiniiins nsked for time to prepare
for death. The lad asked to lie released
from chains long enough to write to his
mother, but the captain rcliiscd, mid
then the boy dictated to the commander
a letter to her, which the coinmniidcr
"The scene on bonrd during the ten
minutes in which these three men were
preparing for death made a picture iiion
mv mind that can never lieclVnecd. While
the elder two were inclined to weaken,
the boy wns a hero, nnd only nsked for
the pi'ivilege of sending word to his
mother that he had died like a man, and
then ask ;d icrmission to give the word
to fire the gun which was to end his

a beautiful one. The tropical sun, cs
iieciully in the afternoon, was tcmicred
lay a bracing hrccic, nnd the neenn was
ns calm nsn mill Hjud the first half of the
day. Not n sail waa in sight, and the
hi nek lines of our shipcut swiftly through
the sen. It was late in the nfternoon
when we were summoned aft to become
executioners. No time wns lost in cere
monial preparations. The boy objected
to the manner of death and begged tn be
shot nil her than hung; but the captain
'"No, sir. You must die from the yard
arm.' "The lad nnd one man were placed on
the rigit side, nnd the third nn the left of
the ship. The ropca were quickly adjus

ted that nn one shall be able to chide
another with having taken part in a
death to which all were not a partv, In
this case the rule wns enforced to the let
ter, because this was an execution of
greater moment thun nny that had ever
taken place in the American navy, or has
ever taken place up to this date. The of
ficers were dressed in full uniform for the
occasion, nnd the crew were clad as it for
" The ropes adjusted, the captain stood
hack, and in a loud voice gave the command.
'"Strike the hell eight! Stnudbyl Kire

"As the stroke of eicht bells rang out
upon the tropical air there was onesurge
ot tne whips, and three bodies dangled
irom tne yard-arms, tnree men were
strangled to death. A neck is never bro
ken by such a method. 1 shall never for
get the scene nt this moment. The crew
were speechless with hurror. The uncer
tainty ot the pnBt forty-eight hours had
In en almost unbearable, and strong men
had grown weak from the tension upon
mind and nerves. The awful spell was
broken ns we were pitied down to dinner
and started forward. The captain at
this moment cnught something of the
spirit ol the crew, and, calling them buck,
cased the straiu somewhat by making a
speech luslilviui! the execution, and urg
iug us to look upon the results of con
spiracy and take warning by it. He
then called for three cheers for the vindi
cation of the Dug, which were given
witnout heart, and then the crew walked
forward solemnly to their dinner nnd tn

"The bodies of the three men were nf
lowed to dangle in the air, while nil on
shipboard ate and discussed the sud
events of the day. The scene in the offi
cers' cabin was csiieciully striking. I'or
around the table sat those who had con
demned the three men to death, mid nt
their head the officer who had ordered
the execution. The details of the alleged
mutinv were freely talked over, so one ol
the officers told me afterward. Hut it
always seemed strange that a boy, IX
years of ugc, good hearted, and lull of
mischief, should have scared the othcers
of a vessel earrrving 120 souls, most of
whom lie would have iad to throw over-
hoard had he undertaken the tusk of
capturing the ship nnd turning it into n
piratical craft. Looking nt it to-day, it
was n most burba'rous stretch of author
