NO MORE HANGING.
Jo Atkinson, of New York. Talks of Him
self and Hla Ghastly Trad.
The hangman's occupation's gone in tha
state of New York, where there is no one
under sentence of death till after the 1st of
January, 1800, and Joe Atkinson, who for
thirty years has done this sort of "Job," will
then give way to the electrician.
Atkinson is a carpenter by trade, and
hanging is an outside matter with bim
method by which the luxuries of life may be
attained. Many years ago a man came to his
shop and asked him to help bim fix np some
beams. The carpenter went to work at the
jl and soon found that it was a scaffold he
wh4 holping to build, and tlie mau he was
helping wm the hmiRrnHn. lie went 011 with
the job, however, an. I other similar Jobs, and
occasionally took a hand at the hanging. At
Intr" the hHngtnau died, and Atkinson suc
ceeded him. But he kept at his trade of car
ix titor, and took an assumed name. Atkin
son is not his real name, and very few who
associate with him and his family know of
the sixty-one people he has launched into
His method of hanging divides tbe job into
several pa rU, so that uo one may be said to
perforin the act. Atkinson drops the noose
over the victim's head and connects the metal
hook of the loose
end of the noose
wilh the hook of
the ro)e dangling
above. Then he
gives the signal for
a man with an ax.
hidden from view, 'y
to cut tho rojie.
This lets fall aSrf
weight of iron, ami J-
into the air. The
man with the ax,
as in Elizabethan
times, is tbe real
executioner. Atkinson, however, has always
taken all the obloquy, and is regarded as the
Atkinson is a bit of a thinker. lie says
that even electricity as a means of execution
will not last long. He doesn't believe in cap
ital punishment, be tells The New York Sun.
He surely ought to know something about it,
considering the number of people be has
swung off. He says that banging makes a
martyr of a tough among his gang, and
pretty soon, instead of being scared off, some
of them come np to go through the same pro
cess. Before tbe happy state of affairs comes
wherein murderers are not made to suffer
death electricity must have a trial. This
uoeds an electrician for an executiouer.

rogues who, placed in positions of trust,

that so many fugi

fled, no one knows where.
There is a parallel in many of these cases.
The defaulters usually live fast, and not un-

said to have been
infatuated with a
named Louise Thie

whom be found in:

his own account. LOtnsB thiebaclt.
When he left Washington he told ber that
he was going west, and would send for her
as soon as be should get settled. Louise, in
the meantime, concluded to visit her parents
in Quebec, intending to join ber lover after
wards. Rumors were at first circulated which in
volved other attaches of tbe department, but
these have been disproved. Silcott is the
sinner and probably the only sinner. It is
not likely that
even the woman
knew of his knav
ery. Tbe affair of
course created a
sensation in Wash
ington. Tbe con
gressmen will have
to bear tbe brunt of
the loss, for it was
their salaries and
not public funds
which Silcott ran
away with. At first
the victims were
leedom. for had Silcott (as
was at first supposed) merely abacunded to
Canada be could not lie extradited. When
it was discovered that he had been stupid
enough to add forgery to bis other crimes
they felt more cheerful, for a forger can be
taken back to the scene of bis crime when
caught, whether he has crossed an interna
tional boundary or not. At first there was a
question whether in his case this could be
done, because he had taken care to redeem
the forged paper himself before bis flight.
The best legal minds of the capital agreed,
however, that this fact had no bearing on tbe
case; that forgery was forgery, and a forger
Going to See a Man.
It was midsummer in the country. There
were half a dozen girls whose brothers and
sweethearts were all toiling in the city and
could not get to the watering place till Sun
day. There was not a male human in sight,
and hadn't been for two days. They were
all sitting gloomily on the veranda of the

"I've been making inquiries. There's a

" What's tbe good of a freight train f"
"Why, we can go down and see the brake

And they trooped off, running like mad
that they might not miss him. Exchange.

away to their customers of so many free
