Bheehan nald he hid been so worrlod by Illness In his family that ho had paid but little nttontlon to tho re cant electrical exnciHlona in Ulng Blng prison. " The fact ot the matter Is," ho said. " I have tnkrn vory llttlo Interest In the mattor any way. I am not familiar with the taw. and I ctrtnlnly am not In a pcaltton to express nn opinion as to Its efllcacy. It noems tn me tlir.t this quoatlon of disposing of murderers tins rcrolvod n groat rtcnl more Attention than It Is entitled lo. It Is sory easy to go too far In looking after the welfaro nnd comfort ot crlmlnnls." Of tho rlsht of the public to know all tho facts attondlngnn official killing Mr. Hhoohnn thought thoro could be no nuosllon. " I am bitterly opposed," he said, " to lioniz ing and petting murderers. Bentitnontnllty ot that sort is maudlin," Mr. Bheehan waa reminded of the fact that tho newspapers wore the ohlof Instruments that Mopped tho praotlce many women had formod of lsltlnc murderer and lavishing flowers upon thorn. "I am aware ot that." said Mr. Bheehan, "nnd now I think tho papers should stop orlnt Ingtho pictures of murderers nnd exploiting their crimes In biz type. There are a gront many cranka In this world who might easily botemptodto commit murder It they thought tho crime would be followed by a gront deal of notorlstr. liutthtsis pnrhaps going a llttlo outsldo tho present question. Inmaironglv In favor ot and I 'shall support any i.ioature tint has for lis object the protection of tho rights of tho press. Theso rights nro auroly assailed whon tho newspipers aie prohibited Iroin piloting any publlo news that is of gotieral public. Intor est. That the publlo wants to know the facts attending the killing of condemniid murderors Is made clear In my mind bythennxlety shown by the newspapers to print this sort of mtttor. It may le argue t that this sort of rending Is not wholesome It tho peoolo. This may bo so. but it is rjusona bio to resume that the pooplo know what tlio7 want coor. If they do not know what is good for them, nnd it Is thoir right to know nil thero Is to know about any publlo business. Tho representatives of the press should he ndmlt tod to the executions In ordor that thov mar write the details of them just as it Is prosontod to thoir minds. It Is not likely that any two mon will seo the same thing In tho same light, and bv taking all tho reports and ntudiing them tho peoplo may learn whether or not iO.c trlcal oxeoutlons are amoro humane method of disposing cf condemned murderers thnn the scaffold. As the matter stands now. the pub llo Is deprived ot all the facts concerning tho executions aavo thoso that filter through sources that mar not bo Impartial." Mr, Bbcehansald that Assemblyman Stoln Introduced a bill into the Assembly last winter repealing tbo prohibitory clause in the elec trical execution law; that it passed the Assem bly with little or no opposition, but that Itro colved a cheok that etToctually stopped It be fore It got Into the Senate. He didn't remem ber just what tho trouble was. lliirrnb for Clinilttcey TJepew! Cbauncey M. Denow declared himself to be nnieservedly for looenllug tho whole law. " I am," be said. " opposed to copltnl punish ment In any form, an 1 so I nm an opponent of this new-fangled way of taking human life. I would like especially tosoi this present law wiped out, but If this cannot bo Accomplished I nm heartily in favor of the Immediate repent of that section of it which prohibits tho publi cation ot the dotatls. It is an no knoarledxed fact that whon a criminal is put to death It la for the benefit ot tho . people at largo, and the people, therefore, should be placeJ In possession, through thoir re: resentatlvea. tho newspapers, of the fullest information concerning It The genius of our laws does not roinlre socrooy in publlo mat ter?, nor should any secrecy be countenanced. The clearest light should be shed upon tho taking of human life by tho law. The mystery by which the killing is at present surroundod works no good purpose, and should be in Stan' W swept aside. The argument that this mystery Increases the awe which Is caused by the kilting of a condemned criminal, and there fore is likely to deter persons from committing murder, la not well founded." A. Brooklyn HBablleia Lot, tbo Eleetr'e I.anr ana Hate the lree. Frederick A. Schroederof Brooklyn said that in his opinion, executions by electricity weto preferable to executions by the hangman's noose. He was sure that the condomned crim inal did not suffer under the electric current. "It kills hlra." he said, "as quick as a flash of lightning." Mr. Schroederdld not care to say much con cerning the second question. He thought that Fometlmes the newspapers made a mis take in their judgmontof what the publio wns interested in, and he was of the opinion that the publlo demand for information concerning the killing of condemned criminals would bo fully met It tho newspapers prlntod a great deal less of this kind of newa. Mr. Bohroeder said he hadn't given the matter enough thought to warrant blm iu expressing a defi nite opinion conoerntng the right of the papors to print this kind of news, or in saying any thing In reference to the repeal ot this particu lar section of tbo law. Tbo lion. J. Hloat Faasett Replies Clka a Craak. Benator J. Bloat Fasaatt announced himself In broad terma as being la favor of onpllal punishment. In answer to the first question be said: "I am not in favor ot repealing the present law because I believe the now systom is preferable to the old. and, white I am cortaln that it is In every way Inferior to tbo Froncli guillotine and the Bpnnlsh currote. I believe It la the best system we are likely to have for many yoars, and I am thoreforo houtllly in faorofit." In reply to the second question ho said: "I do not believe In having upon the statute books any law or any section of law that Is to bo repeatedly violated without tho application ot the prescribed Donulty. It Is a well-known fact tint the uewspapora print what the publlo desires to t aad. and If the publio desires son sational matter that kind of reidlng will be furulsbed them. I am npposod, however, to the printing of all the horrible details of u judicial killlnc. and I think It would be bettor It all these dotalls were left out Notwith standing this, I am In favor ot the repeal of that section which prohibits the printing of the dotalls, beoanse the newspapers seem bound to print the stuff, and It la belter to give them full permission tn do ao than to have them violate a law wbloh under no cir cumstances will ever be enforced." The Benator then spoke In warm terma of the beauties of the French guillotine. "The guillotine." be salJ, "wdl dispose of twenty murderers while this electrical system la disposing of one. Under our present system we havo all the horrible woi k ot preparation to go through with. There Is the strapping In the ohalr, wbloh must be done very carefully, the wetting of the sponge, and all the other work. However, it boats the scaffold and Doose, I think," Van Colt la for thv Frre Press. The Hon. Cornollua Van Cott said ho waa not thoroughly familiar with the Electrical Execution law, and was, thoreforo, not pre pared to answer the llrst quoftlon poMtliely. lie belief ed, however, that tho law wai pref erable to the law making hanging the penalty tor murder. In reference to the second ques tion, ha said: 1 "I am decidedly tn favor of the newipapore printing tbo fnota attending the killing ot a ronilemned criminal. I take it that thla Is pub llo news. This bolng the case, thenowspnpcis should have the right to solid thoir ropnrters to seo thn condemned criminal put to doath nnd tbo right to publish rooorts of tbo t.rocoed Inge I think. Iiowover, that the nowspnpors should be iircfut In handling this sort of hows, and nut present it in a form that mny make the criminal appoar to Ignorant minds as a hero or a innrtyr. That sort of thing Is like ly to work injury. I have known murderers to rccelvn attention from tho nowBpnpers and f i om Boutlinonta'lsts that should huvo been nccnid od only tosoniii gieat public bonofactor. lhat (.rentes a wrong Impression In tho minds of untlilnklnu poop'o.

In reply to the first question ex-Colloctor William H. llnberts.in said: "Iwnsono of live members ot the Fenate who opposed tho passnge of tho Eloctrlcat Kxeoutlon Mil. I opposed it because I did not think It wns an Improvement over the old method of hanging, and I havo seen nothing slnco then to cause me to change my mind. I nm not heartily In fnvor nf capital punish ment, but ns long as this system ot punishing murdoror oxlBts I belluvo the scaffold Is plenty good enough." In roplv to the second qi'estlnn he said: "As recently ns twenty years ago a man named Hyor committed a murlor in this county. Ho flod toCnnndn, and lifter eluding the dctoctlvos for along tltns he returned to this country and was cnptuied by Deputy Fheilff Smith. He was tried, convicted, an 1 bunco I. and not a slugio newspnper printed more than n few linos of the hanging. At present tho public seoms lo want nil the par ticulars attending tho killing of n comlemuod criminal. I nm not in favor ot having matter pnntod In tho nowspaporn that will doinoralh-o tho publlo. but I do not soo how a plain clr ciimstant.nl neeount of nnoxi'cutlon can woik anyevll.
