THE NEW YORK ELECTRIC METHOD
COMPARED WITH HANGING.
Two St. Louis Jadgtm of Errferienoe Hold
Opposing Views Jade Normile Farora
- Uio Employment of Electricity and Judge
Noonan Bellaree In the Bop.
The elortrlo method of executing criminals
doptod by tbe state of New York ia attract
ing attention in every part of the country.
' Ouo of lt warmest advocates in St Louis is
Judge C. Normile, Judge of the criminal
court As the one judicial officer of St Louis
who tries men for their lives, his study of the
execution subject has not alone been by
books, but by observation. He is a member
of tbo New York Medico-Legal society, an
association of doctors and lawyers, which has
correspondents in Europe and throughout
America, Jude Normile is vice president of
the socloty for Missouri.
RATS BaSOraO IS BRCTAX.
"It has been alleged that electricity does
not kill quickly," said the judge. "This is the
view of Or. Hammond. We'd, I do not con
etdur his statemout as of great weight. - His
lnoccurariea have been too many on other
matters. However, I am led to think that
before New York adopted the electrical pro
cess there was a oonvtctiou in favor of the
wire rather than of the barbario rope! It is
a step In the direction of humanity. Hang
ing b a disgrace to our age. It is brutal to
an extreme, and every brutal act begota it
suit It has a debasing influence on all who
witness it In my experience as prosecutor
and Judge, I have, In eighteen yosra, noticed
a constantly increasing prejudice hi the Jury
bnx against capital punishment. Jurors can
not serve because they are opposed to It"
"Are you committed to its abolition r
"Opposition to every form of death punish
ment is growing. As a member of the Medico-Legal
society, I have been requested to
use my influence in favor of the enactment of
a law in Missouri resembling the New York
electrical statute. While I may not be able
to do all that I would wish to, I will commu
nicate with members of the legislature In be
half of it tooths extent of my ability."
: The judge Is in favor, as he has always
been, of privacy in executions and lees news
paper notice of the event He deprecates the
rSow features of hangings, and approves the
Ohio and Missouri enactment for few spec
tators and rapid work. He has had expe
- rieace in sentencing, and, as prosecuting
attorney, in securing the conviction of crimi
. tt&la. As circuit attorney he prosecuted
. and convicted ten men who were executed,
and as Judge be has sentenced three to be
f l have seen but one of them executed, and
that was when serving as circuit attorney.
It was against ray wfchos to soe it, but it was
my 'purpose to see jiutice done decently and
aa the law directed."
- "The guillotine is worse than the rope,"
said the judge. "There is an intoxication in
the sight of blood with some depraved nat
ures. The Spanish garrote system of execu
tion, which I once saw in Cuba, is less objec
tionable, as it insures speedy if not instanta
The judge becamo discursive on the topic.
His examination into- the legal and physical
aspects of the subject caused him to say:
"Our Anglo-Saxon ancestors, from whom we
have derived our notions of crimes and pun
ishments, were brutal Only I V) years ago
there were upon English statute books 210
offenses for which the death penalty was
prescribed. The hanging, drawing and quar
tering process bespeaks a sense of humanity
below thelevel of a Comanche Indian. The
student of criminal Jurisprudence in investi
gation of ancient notions is appalled. Nor
have we altogether outgrown the brutality of
our ancestors. For poaching or shooting a
rabbit or for trivial offenses of any sort the
carnival of blood went on, and there was a
terriflo slaughter of humanity which our
later civilization Is slowly rebuking."
JTTDGE KOONAS'S VIEWS.
Judge E. A. Noonan, of the court of crim
inal correction, submitted very' pleasantly to
an Interview on the subjoct in the interval of
judicial dispensation. His views are directly
opposed to those of his colleague. Although
in bis court mercy tempers justice and he is
personally and at heart kindly generous, he
be Have in the most rigid punishment of
murderers as necessary protection to society.
"I do not believe in the electricity proposi
tion," he said. "It tends to make death easy
and dignified, TVs want our murderers to
realize the horrors of the rope and the gal-
mwm, sum uij aftu v3A.yx WUUI ua pi URKUUJT
and Judge I have met many murderers, and
fat every case these men were afraid of the
' rope. They do not know how painful it is.
. .They do not know how long they may hang
and struggle, especially if the hangman is
nervous and makes a mistake. Everyman
always asks the sheriff to 'do a good job,' and
to do it quickly."
Continuing, Judge Noonan said: "Wo do
not m this advanced age look upon banging
as reflecting the eye for on eye or tooth for a
tooth idua of our ancient law makers. Ws
must protect society by fear when dealing
with the animal natures of so many men.
The fear of hsll or hope of heaven has no ef
fect upon a murderer, tht burglar, the gar
roter andmiinightasEassio. Tho burglar who
knew that ho vo& to Le burnt at the stake if
he went into c house would ratiier rule being
caught and rUk tl-jath by u more painless
system thun eternal Sko and torture. These
dangeroua fotss of life and property must be
taught severe lessons by example. I am,
therefore, against the New York method. It
is a pleasure to die in thr.t manner. It is no
matter of fuor to tho crLniiial, while the dis
graoaful ignominy of tli? rope has a horror
von to tUe moiit depraved. For example,
nun who pray ta U shot, and, es they Jay, to

Examining and Cramming.
" Every teacher knows by experience that,
when be has to take his place in the exami
nation curriculum, he has to submit to the
system, and he does his best to practice the
examining "art" And when, as every teacher
nowadays must, be has to turn crammer, he
tries to acquire the crammer's art o nines

the Prussian military system, grinds out a

unlike the mills of the gods but ths grain it
casts aside; It is designed to grind out the
I do not say that wo can do without exam
inations; nor do I object to all examinations,
under any condition. My complaint is con
fined to the Incessant frequency of examina
tions, the growth of the practice into a highly
artificial system, the creation of a profession
of examining, and its correlative the pro
fession of cramming, the wholesale, mechan
ical and hurried way in which the examina
tions are hel(L and tbo subjection of teaching
to examining. In sum, I complain that the,
trick, the easily .acquired and cheaply pur
chasable trick, of answering printed ques
tions, should now so largely take the place of
solid knowledge and be officially held out as
the end of study. Frederic Harrison ia Pop
