THE NEW DEATH.
Execution of Kemxnler, the Mar derer, at Auburn, N. Y. The Flrnt Man to Die By the Leral Appll catluo of Mectrlclty-The Flret Trial a Failure The) Second Mora Hiicceeeful. Auiukn, X. Y., Aug. 7. With a short, harp shock painless, so far as the world will evor know the soul of Will- Jam Kcmmlor was separated from his body at 6:40 o'clock ycHterday morning. At flvo o'clock there was a rapping at room doors and a 'VKent,r1 uwuneiiiiig throughout the ho ot tc is at AiiDurn. I Warden Durxton had llnfr n nnint ",.nll" jrAA I T Swy tor 1,18 witnesses, Vsnl ra yvand lhey wcr0 or" -ir dercd to report at the prison at six o'clock. An hour be fore their coming lie v. Dr. Houghton and Chaplain Yates appeared at the pate of the prison and wero admitted. After brief consultation with the war den they were taken to Kemroler's cell, whore the condemned man was already awake and talking with his keeper. Kemmler breakfasted lightly. Re ligious services were hold in his coll. He made his own toilet About six o'clock the witnesses began to arrive at the prison, and by 0:30 all were present and seated inalittlo circle around tho execution chamber, waiting for the appearance of tho warden and bis charge. At 6:38 the door at the right of the execution chamber opened and Warden Durston's figure appeared in tho door way. Behind him walked a spruce-looking, broad-shouldered little man, wear ing a full beard with carefully arranged hair clustering about his forehead. He was dressed in a new suit of clothing. This was William Kemmlor, who was about to undergo the sentence of death. , Behind him walked Dr. W. E. Hough ton and Chaplain Yates. Kemmler was by far tho coolest man in the party. He did not look about the jopm with any special decree pf inter est. He hesitated as the door Was closed behind him and carefully locked by an attendant on the other side, as if he did not know exactly what to do. "Give me a chair, will you?" said the warden. Some one quickly handed him a wooden chair which he placed in front and a little to the right of the execution chair, facing the little circle of men. Warden Durston stood at the left of the chair, with his hand on the back of it, and, almost at the moment that Kemmler took his seat, he began to speak in short, quick periods. "Now, gentlemen," he said, "this is William Kemmler. I have warned him that he has got to die, and if ho has any thing to say he will say it" As the warden finished, Kemmler looked up and said in a high-keyed voice, without any hesitation and as if he had prepared himself with the speech: "Well, I wish every one good luck in this world, and I think I am going to a good place, and tho papers has been saying a lot of stuff that ain't so. That is all I have to tell." With the conclusion of the speech he turned his back on the jury and took off his coat and handed it to the warden. After every thing had been gotten in readiness and Kemmler bound to the fatal chair the warden asked: "Do the doctors say all is right?" Receiving an affirmative answer the warden gave the signal In almost immediate response, and as the stop watches in the hands of some of the witnesses registered 0:43), the electric current was turned on. There was a sudden convulsion of the frame in the chair. A spasm went over it from head to foot, confined by the traps and springs that held it firmly so that no limb or other part of the body stirred more than a small fraction of an inch from its resting place. The twitching that the muscles of the face underwent gave to it, for a moment, an expression of pain. Hut no cry es caped from the lips, which were free to move at will; no sound came forth to suggest that consciousness lasted more than an infinite fraction of a second beyond the calculation of tho human mind. The body remained in this rigid posi tion for seventeen seconds. The jury and the witnesses, who had remained seated up to this moment, came hurried ly forward and surrounded the chair. There was no movement of the body be yond the first convulsion. The attending experts pronounced the man dead, but a closer examination showed signs of life and Dr. Spitzka cried out: "Turn the current on in stantly. This man is not dead." Warden Durston sprang to the door way and cried: "Turn on the current As the group of horror-stricken wit nesses stood helplessly by, all eyes fixed on the chair, Kemmler'a lips began to drip spittle and in a moment more sis chest moved and from his mouth came a heavy sound, quickening and increas ing with every respiration if respira tion it was. The current was applied until there was so possible chance that Kemmler till lived. It was turned off thirteen minutes after the first acock was ap plied. Kemmler was dead. a li yinr I 11 i ky. j BY DROUGHT. The Craps Much AffMttd By the Dry Wwthtr. Cjiicaoo, Aug. 8. The Farmers' Re view says: Outside of a few counties In Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota, where local rains have fallen, drought Is universal in the States covered by our report Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Mis souri, Kansas, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Dakota, Iowa and Ne braska. As a natural conseq uence the corn crop is suffering. Unless rains come soon and in abundant supply the crop will be a comparative failure. Spring wheat, also, is experiencing the blighting effect of drought The average condition of that crop at pres ent in Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Min nesota and Dakota is about 25 per cent below average. Oats are yielding as well as could be expected considering the adverse condi tion to which the crop has been subject in tho way of drought and insect depre dations. The crop is pract'-cally a failure in Kentucky, as also in many counties of Illinois, Mis souri and Indiana, where the ravages of the grain plant louse were most severe. The reports indicate that the average condition is 30 per cent lower than that of last year at harvesting time and the averaging yield 20 per cent less than that of 1889. Minnesota and Dakota lead this year with oats and are harvesting good crops, both as re gards quality and yield. DISCONTENTED MEMBERS. They Dlallke Their Pet Meaaurra to Be Throat A aide. Washington, Aug. 6. The decision has been reached by Speaker Reed and his associates in command of the House, tfiat no more public building bills shall pass during this session, because of the enormous expenditure they involve. This decision has caused much discon tent among members whose bills are suspended, particularly among a few who claim to have been promised that their bills should receive early consideration. Those interested in these bills are beginning to understand that they can expect nothing for their measures unless they act independently. A canvass has been made among them by some restless spirit, and twenty have signed an agree ment to turn "d vote against the Speakers foTSuianl when an oppor tunity is offered, and to strike out for themselves and see what they can do for themselves toward passing these bills. Once or twice since the agreement was reached they have been on the point of bolting, but when brought face to face with the act they have hesitated about voting outside of the party. They are still waiting an opportunity to assert their independence, and it is yet to be seen whether they will have the courage to seize it DOUBLE WRECK. Mountain Cloudburst the Cauae of Two Ac eddeota in Ariaona. Needles. CaL, Aug. 0. A cloudburst in the mountains in the eastern part).' Mojave County, Arizona, washed out a bridge two miles west of Yucca. An east-bound freight due at Yucca at eight o'clock was precipitated into the river, killing Fireman VHlliam Neil, slightly wounding Engineer Hursher and seri ously scalding Brakeman Sutton. The San Francisco express, due at the Needles at six o'clock, was delayed by washouts near Williams, Ariz.; and only reached Yucca a few minutes after tbe freight accident, having a narrow es cape. After the bridge was fixed up the train came on, closely followed by the Los Angeles express, which had over taken the first one. When near Needles and running fast a Pullman car on the San Francisco train left the rails, throwing the tourist car just ahead of it over on its side. William Ilenault, of San Antonio, Tex., was severely in jured, but the other passengers escaped with a severe shaking up. A WARNING. Horrible Death of a Farmer After a Hone Coughed In Ilia Face. FonT Wayne, Ind., Aug. 0. An old German farmer named Herman Ruhi, who has occupied a small farm near Bloomingdale, a suburb of this city, died yesterday in horrible sgony. Some time airo he was driving a horse when the animal coughed and blew the ex pectoration into the face of its driver. Last week Ruhi's face became literally incrusted with small pimples and these spread over his body until he eventually became a mass of corruption.
