M if Necessary.
r At 4 19 o'clock this afternoon Tip, the
Vicious elephant In Central Park, died
from the effect of poison administered
to him by Drs. Huntington and Allen,
the oftlclal extcutloneis.
An hour previous to his. death he was
given a dose of bran containing thirteen
small capsules and two large capsules of
canlde of potassium and he an alloys ed
all.
Immediately afterwards he began to
eha!:e and tremble and soon went Into
com ulslons.
Up broke the martingale and also the
clirln on Ills hind legs.
Tnere was the greatest excitement.
31cn stool by with rides ready to shoot
lilm In c.iso he got any more liberty.
Their heiWceb were not requln.il, how-
fever, for the hugo beaut's struggles
quickly ended, and us the poison begin to
work be fell to the ground and died.
At 3 o'clock this afternoon Drs. Hunt
ington and Allen, the official execu
I mora of Tip, the ldous elephunt In
mtrnl Park, announced that the huge
ichjderm was evidently succumbing
the poison administered to him carlj
the day.
Tip had refused to eat a carrot loaded
Ith poison this morning, but he
unched the vegetable bolus with his
ige Jaws und then spat It out. It was
Id at the time that bomo of the poison
id gone down into his stomach, but for
time he showed no effects.
Then suddenly he began to weaken In
Is hind quarters and Dr. Allen nn
junced that paralysis was one of the
mptoms of the poison.
Supt. Smith, of the Menage-le, caused
lino to be drawn about the elephant
JUse, and not even the reporters who
ere present were admitted to the bulld
ig. It was said by the doctors that the
iralysls appeared to be extending, and
lat the huge trunk was affected. Tip
.mid not move It except very little,
hen it seemed as If he had been trjlng
) do o
Dr. Allen said the dose given to the
lephanr In the morning would ultimately
lid his life, and that the end was not
ir off. "He will die In about an hour,"
'as the doctor's prediction, made about
o'clock.
At 0 o'clock this morning Drs. Hunt
:gton and Allen, carrjlng leather bags,
nttred ihe plephant-house. Their
nowledge of toxicology lauscd them to
e singled out by the Park C'ommls
loners to superintend the admlnlstra
'n of the deadly drwj which was to
nake of Tip a pood elephant. They
lad a Uttlo package off cjanlde o
lotaulum, six ounces In all. sufllelent to
Illl a regiment of men.
M A cruevd of ."ully one hundred people

and grasped tho carrot gingerly.
.Every one held his breath. Tho men
cr science had said that the sturf would
..'f r!7vcn Tin's stomach before he
would roll over dead.
Slowly and deliberately Tip curled his
trunk under and lifted tho carrot to his
capacious maw. An Instant biter It had
disappeared and tho spectators waited
to see the five tons of flesh fall with a
1 .,"'.avSc,1 st,"ten ,n the agonies of death.
Hut Tip didn't fail worth a cent. He
give the carrot a crunch between his
pow-erful Jaws and then deliberately
spat It out In several pieces. Still, the
spectators thought that enough of the
deadly stuff had found Its wavlnto'Tlp's
Momach to do for him. Thcro was,
however, no perceptible change In the
elephant's demeanor.
Dr. Allen at once called for an apple,
and Mr. Hums prepared one to receive
another quantity ot the poison. Two
nuntes more ot the white powder was
poured Into the hollow apple and plugged
up.
'Wunl.l Not i:nt the Apple.
Mopls took It nnd ngiln held out tho
Instrument of death for Tip's acceptance
The elephant took It, wrapped the end
of his trunk arounl It. crushed It Into a
pulp and delllier.Uelv tossed It away.
Meantime four men, each carrying
a Winchester repelling rifle, filed In and
took a stand opposite Tip's cage
They were there to bo useful In case
of en emergency.
Shortly after their entrance another
man, with a rifle, presented himself, and
ns he had a pass ho was promptly ad
mitted. He had not been In tho elephant house
many moments before he begnn acting
In a very queer manner nnd to handle
his ilflc In a way that the reporteis
and others thought was very careless
and dangerous to the people In the
room.
After watching the stranger's mme
ments for some time several of those
present reported to the authorities that
he was lntoxlcntcd, and he was nskerl
to leae, which he did Immediately.
When outside tho house he grew ery
Indignant nnd said he wns n gentle
man, was not Intoxicated and had been
grossly Insulted.
It was .aid that the man was a friend
o Assistant Superintendent of Men
ngerle Durns and had secured his
pass from him.
When Mr. Hums wns seen by nn
"nenlng World" reporter he was verv
reticent regnrdlng the matter. He said
tho man was Dr. Wright, of West
nighty-flrst street, but that he did not
know his Initials or exact address.
Mot Drunk, liut tcro.iN.
He said further that Dr. Wright Is
not a drlnklnk mm, but that he hid a
nonous affection that sometimes causes
his movements and actions to reem queer
to people whs don't know him.
Another gintleniin, who claimed to
know Dr. Wright well, said he was a
great student of natural history and
also a collector of guns He also said
Dr. Wright had hunted elephants In
their native Jungles. Dr. Wright him
self promptly left the park nnd could
not be seen.
This caused a little dlierslon for n few
minutes, and then all eyes were turned
on Tip.
HvralloTTPil Home Poison.
It was eiident that the animal had
swallow att a portion of-lhe drug Dr.
Allen thought about an ounce.
He begin to quiet down, and the doc
tors said that the drug a having a
sedative effect. Then Tip lucked up Into
the angle made by the Iron bars und the
side wall of his cage, and stood there
with his haunches resting ngalnst tho
wall
ThlH, according to Dr. Allen, wns nn
f-ct of the cyanide of potassium,
whUh, acting on iho spinal cord, pro
duce", first, a partial paraljsls of the
hind quarters.
Three more attempts were made to In
duce Tip to take the poison. Two more
apples and a half loaf of bread, all
charged with the drug, were taken from
Mojils by the elephant, bqmczed In his
trunk and tossed aside
"It's no use," snld ''upt. Hums; "he
knows too much for us."
Kupt. llanklnon thought that enough
cu.erlmentlng h id l"en done, nnd snld
so. Then It was suggested that the rifles
be brought Into pi.i. bu -Mr. Hankinson
vetoed that in short order.
'lip '-els Sick.
Tip continued to lean nt Intervals
ngalnst the side of his cage, nnd at 7 3J
ber.in to retch ,
lie kept this up at short periods until
nearly s o'clock. Hetwcen the fltR of
retching he apeared to be stupid. Then
he began to rally und seemed more like
himself.
At i) o'clock he did not appear to be
suffering much Inconvenience from the
poison he had taken
Dr. Allen, however, Insisted that the
animal had tnktn enough of th cvnnlde
of potnsslum Into his stomach to kill
him eventunllv. The notion of the iiol
son was, however, slower than had been
counted on, he said.
Commissioner Straus was evidently
disgusted, and characterized the at
tempt on Tip's life as an unqualified
failure.
Soon I.lirly ns Hrer.
At 10 30 o'clock Tip had resumed his
swavlng motion and looked as If he
didn't feel very bad about anything In
pirtlculir. Supt. Hunklnson went down
town nnd It was said that the Park Com
missioners hud decided to leave It to
the Society for the Prevention of Cru
ilty to Animals as to how Tip should be
put to deith. 1-nl.r it wns said that
Supt. Smith would be nllov. ed to decide
upon the means to be used.
Commissioner Straus assured nn
"Kvenlng World" reporter that no fur
ther ateinpts on Tip's life would be
made to-day.
Dr. Allen llMi.ipolntcd.
Dr. Allen said he whs much disap
pointed ut the want of action of tho
..jHiiide of potassium. In the case of
human beings, the doctor said, the ac
tion of the drug was very quick. Two
grains of It will produce the following
Himptoms In lapid succession.
The fcplnal column Is first affected and
Immiidlalfly almost entlro paral
vss of the lower extremities folluws.
Then the lungs are fiiir.il zed, together
with hte upper extremities, and finally
the heait suddenly stops beating.
In the enho of Tip, Dr. Allen expected
that the same svmptoms would occur.
Tho dose given to the nnlmal. namily
two ounces, was enough to kill four 01
five hundred men nlmost lnstnntly. He
wns sure, he said, that the nnlmal had
swallowed at least an ounce of the
poison which he nnd Dr Huntington
had decided was nmple to kill the ele
phant. They had doubled the qunntltv
ns an ettia precaution.
Dr Allen at noon was still of the
opinion that Tip would dlo from the
elfects of the done given him To a l.i-
mn:i Tip rrepird In be ns lively as ever
Hi'ftiM'tl (iootl Fruit.
William Wnllace, of the Museum of
Natural History, tried to Induce Tip to
eat n potato and an apple, neither of
which contalm d poison, nfter the loi.ded
carrot had been administered. Tip re
fused, however, to eat tho perfectly
hound fruit , ...
Supt Hnnklnson. of the Society for the
Prevention of Crueltv to Animals, re
tuned to his ofllce after the failure to
kill Tin, and at W o'clock sild the vie

"Then what do ton bellete would be

"Couldn't siv," rcplliil Mr il.inl.lnsnn

tails of the execution, feels viiv inn h
disappointed at the failure to dispose of
