HE DIED GAME. iREGfilALD BIECHaLLHABIjED It WOODSTOCK, ONT. MAINTAINS HIS NERVE TO THE VERY LAST. Tho Sorrow of Ills Unfortunate Wife and His Friends. . The last act in the noted Bcnwoll mur der caso a case whoso details, from the finding of tho victim's dead body in the swamp a few miles from Woodstock, Ont., Canada, last February, to tho present timo, has been followed with tho closest interest and attention by thousands of roaders in both America and Europe was played ut tho Oxford county jail iu Wood stock, on Fi'iJay morning Nov, 14, when Reginald Birchell paid tho penalty for his crime by giving up his lifo on tho scaffold. To tho lust the convicted man maintained a firm aud uuyielding character protest ing his innocence of tho murder of Ben well, but refusing to make any statement concerning his connection with tho caso. Ilis nervo, indeed, was something mar velous, und his courage, could it havo been exercised iu tho proper direction, would havo been pronounced heroic. Tho lait night of BirchoU's lifo was spent In interviews rith his wife and his spiritual adviser. At sovon o'clock Birchell had just finished supper when a carriage .drovo up to tho door of tho prison. It contained Mrs. Birchell, Mrs. West Jones and Air. Leotham. All throe went into tho jail, but only Mrs. Birchell climbed tho circular iron stairs to her hus band's corridor. Her 'Bister und Mr. Leotham went into tho governor's office to wait for Mrs. Birchell. In the narrow corridor in tho jail two hearts wero holding a last earthly com munion. A man who had promised to love and cherish a woman through lifo was bid ding her good-bye; and a woman who had promised to love, honor und obey a man unto death was making tho last sacrifice. . Until ono o'clock in the morning they continued their conversation. During tho wholo of this long last meeting aud long last parting in tho very valley of the shadow pf death, Turnkey Forbes was In tho corri dor with them, but they cared nothing for it Early iit the night tho .Rav.' Rural Dean. Wado'went Into tho corridor and mado him Belf ready to spend the night. As ono o'clock came tho leave-taking oc curred, und tho weeping woman was led out through tho barred door und down the narrow stairs, down which her husband soveu hours later went to his death. The timo during tho hours after Mrs. Birchall left the jail were passed by Birchall and tho preacher in readiug script ure and talking. The turnkey tool: a nap whilo Mr. Wado was with Birchall iu h.s cell and Mr. Forbes, who is one of Birch all's executors, went in and spent somo timo with him, talking about his temporal affairs. Birchall had littlo to leave, ex cept a legacy which ho expects to fall to him next spring. The extent of his prop erty was the $1,500 he received from the autibiography and $150 ho received by his agent from tho proprietors of a Toronto museum for tho clothes ho wore on tho 17th pf February and also authority solely to oxhibit a ciust of his head, bust and figure. At 8:15 o'clock the procossion started from tho Jail to tho yard in which tho exe cution was to take placo. First cauio tho rural dean, Wade, iu his surplice, and reading tho Church of England service for tho burial of tho dead. Behind him Dr. Chamberlain, fol lowed by A. D. Stewart and Deputy Sheriff Perry. Tho prisoner came next, deathly pale, but resolute. His jaws locked with the fixity of death. Ho came down tho stairs with ono hand on tho rail ing, for from his elbows down his arms were free. His step was steady. His jet black hair and moustache mado the pallor of his face like marble. IIo was dressed in dark colored tweed clothes, and light patent leather shoes. IIo looked so young and there was such an expression of un movable resolution and undaunted courage, that tho meu who saw him and knew him to be worthy of death in tho cyo of tho law, forgot that he had shot a friond in tho back in a lonoly swamp. The faces of half of tho men wero as white almost as that of the doomed man. Tho principal actors In the tragedy stop pod with their charge about llftejn feet from tho gallows and the solemn tones of the Anglican servico thrilled everyone thero with a horror that hardly let them realizo tho tremendous importance of that In which they wero taking part. BirchaU's eyes bad not a trace of tho frivolity that lightened his Imprisonment. A hs stood listening to the low-toned priest, they were llxed on tho bluo sky over tv the north. Thero was not a hunted look uor was there any fear In his eyes, but a fixed purpose that seemed to consume his reason. At 8:27, six minutes after tho procession started from tho corridor, tho words "Deliver us from evil," j.;avo tho signal, and a quick pull ou tho small rope by tho executioner, who stood behind tho law's victim, released tho immense weight. It dropped with tho rapidity of thought, it fell to tho cround aud sank six or eight Inches in tho ground by the force of its weight. Biivllell had been placed closo to ono of tho uprights, und the jerk of tho ncoso drew his body first obliquely und then up. Tho body wus jerked Into tho air about. Cvo feet and fell until his feet wero within two feet of tho ground. The drop was mado at 8:2!) o'clock. Tho convulsions commenced half a minute later, but they were not violent, moro re sembling heavy breathing, with slight twitching of tho hands and legs. At 8 :30j tho convulsions had ceased, nnd at 8:35 Dr. Chamberlain, who stood with his hand on tho body, declared that Ufo was extinct. Thers was Just six minutes frum the drop until tho doctor declared Birchall dead. A post mortem was held by Dr. Odium and Coroner McLay presided at tho inquest. Dr. Chamberlain said tho neck was broken. On Saturday ono Victoria, B. C, China man cut another's head off with a knLfo.

Treasurer Longycar. of Ingham county appllod -to tho supreme court for a mandamus compelling City Treasurer Buck of Lansingib turn ovc to the5 couuty certain dtg ' taxtyunds asselscd under act 214 oT tho rabllc acts bf 1889. The respondent acknowledged tho sum to be in his hands but claims the time for paying it to tho county expired on March 31, 1890. Ho refused to pay tho money over upon tho ground that the act is un constitutional and void. Act No. 198 of tho public acts of 1877 placed a tax upon dogs, to make a fund from which money was to bo applied in paying tho claims of thoso h suffered losses of sheep by tho depre dations of dogs. Tho validity of tho law was sustained. Tho leirislaturo of 1889 so amended tho law that the county treas urer should be the ' custodian of tho fund and when claims for damago to sheep by dogs aro examined and allowed by tho town board or city council tho clerk shall draw on order on tho county treasurer for tho amount. Tho respondent, in the caso at issue, thought that by placing tho fund in the hands of tho county treasurer a fund would bo crcatod to tho advantage of ono community at tho expenso of another, and that tho amount of said fund raised in Lansing would bo appropriated to tho rur al districts. Therefore ho thought tho provision unconstitutional. The court re fuses to sustain this view. Smash-up at Saginaw. Sacixaw, Nov. 15.
