STRANGE SPECTACLE Scenes on the Scaffold at Hayward's | Execution. A GAMBLER'S PHRASE ON HIS LIPS Indulged in an Incoherent, Ram bling Talk. 1ST THE DIMLY LIGHTED JAIL MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., December 11 W'ith a Rambler's phrase upon his lips and a cold smile upon his face, Harry Hayward, Catherine Ging's murderer, faced the eter- | ral ^his morning. . "Ptill her tight, I'll stand pat." These were the last words he uttered as the dep- | uty pulled the well-soaped noose as tightly about the murderer's reck as he could in or der that death might come the more quick- | ly and the more surely. It was twelve minutes past 2 o'clock when Sheriff Holmberg pulled the lever, and thus released the trap upon which Harry- Hay ward stood. In just thirteen minutes Coun ty Physician Frank Burton declared that the swinging figure in which not a ;novement or struggle had been observed was that of a dead man. The final act In the great tragedy of life and death had been played, [ and the curtain had been rung down oo the | career of the chief actor. The coolest man at his own o*?=ution was Harry Hayward. Not a man of the little knot of privileged spectators who had kept a long vigil in the big gray room but whose heart thumped more loudly and im portunately than or.e which was 30 soon to cease its beating; not a face but turned more ghastly than his in the gruesome light. The cne gas jet had been turned off, and the room was illuminated only by a loco motive head light suspended about four teet from the floor opposite the scaffold. The huge cone of light threw a horrid, dis torted shadow of the engine of death on the rough, whitewashed stone wall behind. Two i ooses were discernible, both well tried and tested, one being held In reserve. A deputy had carefully chalked two clr- | cles where the feet of the doomed man were to stand, and had outlined the trap that there might be no mistake in the tin- ] e^rtain light. ( The chief deputy mounted the scaffold. I where Warden Wolfe of the state peniten tiary, ex-Sheriff Winn Bracket and Sheriff i Chappell of St. Paul Here already waiting, and directed that every hat be removed ar.d that there be no smoking. A coruon of policemen filed in, ami made a little | passageway for the dea*h party. Meanwhile, the prisoner had been male | ready in the cell room, his black silk robe hod been put on, and the black cap ad- I justed. Suddenly the door was drawn wide open, and the sound of an Inarticulate yell emanated from the cell room, whe*re the prisoner's comrades were taking their farewell; then three hoarse cheers for the sheriff, Holmberg. led by Hayward himself, ar.d ending with "He's all right." It was awful, such a demonstration led by a man on his way to meet his death. As its echoes died away the sheriff ap peared. followed by the prisoner between Deputies Bright and Anderson, and Deputy Megaarden bringing up the rear. Harry Hayward entered the death cham ber with the same easy stride that marked | his promenades when he was a "swagger youth. . | "Good evening, gentlemen. said he in clear and even tones, as he 'jowed his way Into the room, wearing his somber garb so jauntily that grotesqueness was forgot ten. He made his way up the stairs to the scaffold, but tripped on the uiaocus tomed gown. This amused him. and he laughed at the misstep. As he strode upon the trap the deputies looked more like frightened children clinstng to a parent than officers of law. . Carefully placing his feet on the marked | spot he drew his splendid figure to its ! greatest height and glanced about with a I calm face, occasionally brightened by a smile of recognition as he descried some | triend In the crowd. Hi* Farewell "Word*. Upon being asked If he had anything to say he replied in a careless, drawling tone, "Well, yes." He moistened his lips with his tongue. "Well, to you all," he began, "there has been a good deal of curiosity and wonder at my action, and some of you think that I am a very devil"?with a peculiar drawling accent on the first syllable of that word? "and if you knew iny whole life you would ' think so all the more. I have dictated the full statement today on all my life to j Mr. Edward Goodseil, Mr. J. T. Mannix and a stenographer?let's see, what's that 1 stenographer's name?"?and Hayward peer ed down over the edge of his scaffold as if | expecting some one to answer. ?Where's Ullne?" he went on, somewhat disconnectedly. "Ullne here? I promised to take his dog with me under my arm to make him a record. It would be a good thing for the dog. Doyle, you told me to bow to you. Where are you? Aren't you here? I can't eee you," and the speaker peered about for the detective. "I'm here, Harry," called out Doyle. "Well, then, good evening, Mr. Doyle," said the prisoner, smiling graciously and I bowing. Then, taking another tack, he call ed out; "Clemens, did you get that ticket?" . A hat was shoved up into the cone of | light in assent. "Ah, that's good. Mannix, let me see now" ?and Hayward hesitated with the embar iassment of a man who has forgotten his speech. "Take your timei" said Sheriff Hoimberg. "Let me see now, I certaiidy had some thing to say to Mannix, because I have al ways entertained the kindest reelings for l im. Joe. remind me of what It was; you know I have been having trouble with my memory lately." "Say nothing more In that Itr.e," came In . low, distinct tones from Mannix. "You are about to meet your God. and should express | here your forgiveness for your brother as you did so nobly to me today, and with thoughts of your mother and father before ycu, you should act as you have during the last fortv-elght hours, meeting death man- | fullv and forgiving all those toward whom you have borne any ill-will up to this time." "Forgive him." said Harry, as Mannix finished, "well. I have freely forgiven him for any imaginary wrong he thinks he has done me. He has done me no wrong. I have done him a great wrong. Father | Cleary. Father Timothy and Father Christy have taken great interest in me and have exerted themselves greatly about my spiri tual welfare. I have the greatest respect for each of them. For John Day Smith, my lawyer, also. He is a good man and a Christian as well as a lawyer, and I have promised hi'm to say something here tonight which I should have probably have said of my own accord." "Oh," resumed Harry, dropping back to his former easy tone, "is Goodseil here?" When told that Goodseil was absent he continued, "Well, Dr.Burton, I think I have something to say to you." What it was will never be known, for the doctor stoppel him with the suggestion that he had better not say anything. Hayward stood a moment In thought, as CHEW AND SMOKB TOBACCO. VO VFRVES QUAKING.

Weather conditions and general fore cast?The storm yesterday morning off the south Atlantic coast has moved rapidly northeastward, accompanied by severe gales on the coast from Hatteras to Bos ton, and is now central southeast of New England. A second depression is central over Lake Michigan. The barometer- is highest in Utah. Snow or rain has occurred in the south Atlantic states, New England, and the lake regions. The following heavy precipitation (in inches) was reported: Dufing the past twenty-four hours, Cape Henry, li.10; Kitty Hawk, 1.42. The temperature has fallen from Vir ginia southward to Georgia and Florida, with frosts in northern Florida and on the central gulf coast. It is warmer in the central valleys and the lake regions. if telling the lames of those he wished to remember in his last words. Satisfied apparently that all had been done that he had intended, he half turned his head and flung back over his shoulder: "I guess that's all. Now, Phil Megaarden, go ahead." The straps were quickly adjusted. As the noose settled down over his head he said: "Let's see; where does the knot go;" under the right ear? No, it's the left, isn't it? Please pull it tight. That's good. Keep your courage up, gentlemen." It was Harry's last glimpse of earth. "Pull her tight; I'll stand pat," he said. Megaarden stepped back, raise i his hand in the fatal signal, and like a shot the body dropped through the opened trap. The spec tators waited breathlessly while the doctor listened to the fluttering heart. Thirteen long minutes passed. Dr. Burton stepped back, and the spectators began to file out. A aeputy loosened the strap that bound the hands. They fell inert at the side of the body, and Harry Hayward was dead. Awaiting the Summon*. Before dark morbid crowds had assembled in the vicinity of the jail. There was noth ing to see except the gray walls and the oc casional opening of the heavy doors to ad mit some official, yet they lingered in waiting for the tragic event. At milnight the throng numbered several hundred. As Capt. Sandberg was covering the win dows of the jail, looking into the alley, Har ry noticed him and shouted: "That's right. Block out the gaping crowd. There will be no visitors after 5 o'clock in the morning. People wishing to see me will have to call at the morgue, as I intend to change my quarters," and he laughed as he said it. He said he could never hang unless there was a crowd present. He wanted to see the people, and suggested that it would have been better to have the scaffold out side and have seats arranged so that every one could see it. As a sample of his conversation, the fol lowing can be quoted: Sheriff Holmberg came into the cage and Harry said: "How are you, sheriff? I am as fine as silk. You and I are the chief actors tonight, aren't we, sheriff?" He seemed to never think of any here after. Hayward's swell <linner was 3erved, ac cording to his desire, shortly after 10 o'clock, and he partook of it with apparent relish. Hayward spent a considerable portion of the evening telling stories and listening to stories by others. It being his last night, he was allowed quite a privilege, and was continually surrounded by friends. He was gay and jovial all the time, and gave every indication that he would go to the gallows as he would to dinner. He spoke about his wife occasionally, for he insisted she was his wife. He said he gave her $50 to make her feel good. He passed cigars around freely and talked about his great meal. The toast he proposed at his din ner was: "Here's to the girl who loves me and to the girls whom I love." He gave it in the French. During the evening Hayward held a long | conversation with his attendants, and laughed and joked on the subject of his ap proaching execution. To the newspaper men he said: "I would like to see the account of how tills thing came out and about my actions on the scaf fold," and again he laughed as if he were going to a picnic instead of to his death. About K?:ilO a stenographer was admitted to Harry's cell, and he finished the state ment which he had been spending consider able time on lately. Rev. Father Timothy arrived shortly af ter, not upon the summons of the con demned man, but in case that at the last moment a desire should be expressed by the hitherto unrepentant man for a spiritual adviser.

Proposed Resolution Calling; on the Treasury for Information. In the next few days the indictments found against a number of persons who are alleged to have* ?Violated the laws gov erning the sale of oleomargarine In the District of Columbia will b# drawn up, and the cases under them will toe presented to the Criminal Court for. .immediate action. The press of business ?t the city hall has delayed somewhat the (preparation of these documents, and this has caused those en gaged in the sale of imitation butter to re peat their assurances tjiat the prosecution of the alleged violators had been dropped, and thai nothing more would be heard from the Internal revenue or legal authori ties on the subject. The individuals making these assertions pre understood lo base them upon the be lief that th? government Vrill allow per sons charged with violations of the law to pay the money penalties prescribed under the statutes, 'and thus relieve themselves from the publiHty of a trial! as well as the possibility of a Sentence1 of both fine and imprisonment in case a conviction is se cured in theii; oqaps. ? ? i? ' It is well known that such.ft course was pursued in many similar cases before both here and elsetvhere. In those instances, however, it is understood the treasury offi cials were afraid the testimony they could present was not sufficient to procure con victions under the statute, and they conse quently accepted the oleomargarine deal ers' propositions to pay fche money penal ties and drop the cases. Of course this payment was an admission that the law had been violated. In view of this fact it is said to be in tended by prominent members of the Na tional Dairy Union, who are closely watch ing the present course of events in Wash ington, to secure the passage by the United States Senate of a resolution of Inquiry calling on the Secretary of the Treasury for all information regarding prosecutions under the oleomargarine laws since Janu ary 1, 1895, and the names and occasions when prosecutions were dropped upon the payment by those accused of the money penalties provided by the statutes. Keeping; a >ulNunoe. Members of the South Washington Citi zens' Association were present in tho Police | Court this morning as interested spec tators in the. case of a colored man named Lewis Jefferson, who was charged with maintaining a nuisance on South Capitol street between I and K streets. The al leged nuisance consisted of an immense pile of manure, probably one thousand cart loads. The attention of the authorities was called to the presence of this alleged nuis ance by the citizens' association, and it was only after considerable trouble that the oJHcii-ls were able to discover who own ed the manure, and he was served with the necessary notice to abate the same. Hav ing failed to comply with the notice a war rant was issued, and the case was heard today. Judge Kimball heard the evidence and told the old man there was no excuse for his continuing to maintain the nuis ance 'after all the time he had been given, and fined him $25 or sixty days on the farm. Had a Chanee. The Tenleytown fire brigade had a chanee this morning to give the village residents an exhibition of its efficiency. About 0:30 o'clock George Donaldson discovered that there was fire in the house of William T. Burrows, on the Grant road, where a de fective fine was the cause of the trouble. The volunteer fire department turned out, and, assisted by Policemen Riley and Hess, suteeded in extinguishing the flames before the house was totally destroyed. The loss amounted to about $500, and is fully cov eted by insurance. Threw Her Trunk. Out. David S. Townsend, Who IWes at 11th and H streets northwest, Wfts before the Police Court yesterday, charged irith ag assault on Nettie Burke. The woman rented a room in his house, and'-wh^ti her time was up she did not move fast enough for Town send, and he broke opfyi he^. room door and threw her trunk out. She charged that in so doing he laid violent hattds on her, and a fine of $5 was imposed on Townsend.

LOUIS SELECTED The National Republican Conven tion to Be Held There. JUNE 16 FIXED AS TEE BATE Primaries Decided Upon for Elect ing District Delegates. THE BALLOTS TAKEN ??Wo are burning the city up," was the significant telegram received last nigh the Arlington by Mayor Walbridge and M . S. M. Kennard of St. Louis from a number of enthusiastic citizens of the Missouri me tropolis. There was scarcely less enthu liism among the Missourians in Washington than that indicated in St. Louis by the te gram, and until a late hour ^ey were cele brating the victory won before the nation al republican committee. It was P^ticu ly pleasing to them that they had defeated Chicago In the scramble for convention hon ors, and this consideration added more zes to their happiness and more power to their elbows when they proceeded to crook them. An Bu'itlnK Scene. The scene at the Arlington when the com mittee reassembled yesterday afternoon to settle the all-Important question of the time and place for holding the next repub lican national convention was exciting ana interesting. While It was almost a 'ore gone conclusion that St. Louis wouldpun the plum, the representatives redoubled their efforts and made a brave fi,?ht. The Chicagoans asserted with every^ap: of confidence that they c?u'd "otFJanClsco nrze and declared that San Francisco would throw Its strength In_ the dlrec?on of the windy city when a decisive ballot seemed in order. The Califormans. how ever, declared they were In jhe themselves alone, and would hold their fi ices together until the last ditch was reached. Many efforts were made tomake combinations, but they ended n ?thiBk; and when the committee went into execu five session a St. Louis warrior assured his friends that six of the votes promised PiUsburg would go to St. Louis as soon as they were wanted. DiKtrlct at Columbia Matter. When the doors were closed the question of the representation of the southern states in the next convention was taken up, and then the District of Columbia was made a bone of contention. All oay the Arlington corridors had been crowded with local poll tibialis Andrew Gleeson, Calvin Chase, Mai cellus Bailey and a host of oth|:r men hung around and buttonholed commit teemen. They wanted the committee topass a resolution, already i,rePa? d. d^'ari * that the District delegates to the next re publican national invention should be oir-fted directly by votes cast at a piimary eleotfon. Instead of being selected at a con vention, as heretofore. Powell Clayton_ in troduced this proposition In the committee, and with "t was coupled the proviso that the committee should name three persons, who should fix the ttme cnd p^ee ror hold ing the primary, End also hav? the ??.?* to appoint Judges for such elation. When the matter was brought up Col. Perry son was called on by the committee to hi" views on It. He candidly expressed hte nreference for the old system, but said It made no (Mfference to him how delegates should be chosen, because he was bound to he one of them. The resolution was then agreed to and Messrs. Carson and Gleeson re named as two of the supervisors the third to be appointed by Chairman Carter. There was much disappointment among the local contingent In the corrldorswhen this action was known. Most of them naa come cocked and crimed with speeches which they imaging they woild have a chance to fire oft by reason of the commit tee giving them a hearing on the resolution, but in this they were fooled, and they could not conceal their unhappiness. Down to Balloling. When the District matter was settled, Virginia affairs were discussed in a casual way, and then the committee proceeded to the real business for which it 'vas called. The question of time was quickly decided, the original proposition to hold the conven tion June 10 being adopted unanimously after several amendments to fix upon dates in lulv and August were voted doATn. This being settled, an informal ballot was taken upon the question of a place. It re sulted as follows: San Francisco, 2U,St. Louis, 13; Chicago, 8; Pittsburg, J, New A motion was made and carried that on future ballots the city receiving the lowest number of votes would be dropped from suc ceeding ballots. On the second call of the roll the result was: San Francisco, -U, St. Louis, 14; Chicago, 8; Pittsburg, J.. . This was greeted by the friends of St. Lculs us a sure sign of eventual success, and the next ballot showed this confidence was well founded, as the figures show: San Francisco, 1U; St. Louis, 18, Chicago, J, PIttSwase'scen that four votes from P'?s burc had gone to St. Louis on this ballot, ami there were offers of 50 to 1 made that St. Louis would get It on two more ballots. The fourth and fifth ballots resulted a* follows: Fourth. Fifth. 22 2tt St. I,ouis... ? .6 San Francisco *" Chicago " X The Committee of Arrangomeiitn. The committee adjourned at li p.m., after appointing a committee with full power to make all arrangements for the national con vention. consisting of Manley of Maine, chairman; Carter, Montana: Clarkson.lowa; Hahn, Ohio; Clayton, Arkansas; Kerens, Missouri, and Campbell, 'St*^ n.ittee was in conference with the St Louis fi^i#??ration today.

REJOICING IX ST. LOUIS. C?iiKr<*tiilntf?/iiM ExrlimiKoil Over the SneceftM of lln Emf?Nnrieft. There is general rejoicing in St. Louis over the action of the national republican committee in selecting that city as the place for the holding of the next national republican convention in June, 1896. Not alone those who will be directly benefited by the convention and its attendant crowds showed their interest in the action of the national committee, but everybody seemed enthused. Long before the bulletins an nouncing the vote of the committee on the location had been posted in newspaper of fices windows large crowds of people as sembled, and when the final ballot was put up announcing that St. Louis had won the prize the enthusiasm was unbounded. At the offices of the Business Men's "League, which has a committee in Washington, bulletins were received by telegraph every few minutes after the voting commenced, and when it was seen that St. Louis was steadily gaining there was much rejoicing. Almost simultaneously with the receipt of a bulletin announcing the result of the final ballot the following dispatch from S. M. Kennard was delivered to James Cox, secretary Business Men's League: "The battle is fought and won. Our friends are celebrating and everybody is happy. Representatives of St. Louis in Washington, without exception, have been earnest, hopeful and valiant." Congratulations came in over the tele phone in quick succession, and jubilation became general. Secretary Cox, in discussing the result, said that the information received prior to the departure of the committee for Washington convinced him that the dele gation would bring back the convention and the result was by no means a sur prise. "We are not quite out of the woods yet," he added. "When the committee started we were 920,000 short of the funds abso lutely necessary to entertain the conven tion and maintain the reputation of St. Louis for hospitality. This calculation was based upon $15,000 being subscribed by the steam railroads, which have not yet final ly reported. Since Saturday morning I have INDEX TO ADVERTISEMENTS.

"It is planned to hold the convention in the exposition building, the north nave of which will be fitted up at a cost of $15,000, and when finished will seat at least 15,000 people." Hotel managers were kept busy all after noon and evening answering telegrams from different parts of the country asking that rooms be reserved during the con vention week. Speaker Reed and Major McKinley, pres-? idential possibilities, anticipating the com mittee's action, had already reserved quar ters at the Southern Hotel, where their respective state delegations will also be taken care of. J. H. Manley, secretary of the national committee, telegraphed that rooms be re served for the committee at the same hos telry. Gen. Russell A. Alger, another'possible candidate for presidential honors, has se cured rooms at the Southern, which will also be the headai al ters of the following state delegations: Michigan, New Hamp shire, Ohio, Maine, Colorado, Illinois and Massachusetts. Melville E. Stone, general manager of the Associated Press, will make his head quarters at the .St. Nicholas Hotel, while the working force will be taken care of at the Planters' Hotel, handy to both the teleg/aph companies. Impersonating a Detective. William Ellis, a young colored man, had several bottles of brandy in his possession last night when Policeman Howell of the eighth precinct arrested him, but as the owner of the liquor was not known, the prisoner was taken to the Police Court this morning as an alleged suspicious person. It appears that some young colored n.an, alleged to be the defendant, has been seen on the streets at all hours of the night by policemen, and he claimed that he was working for Detective Lacy. This information reached the detective, and he requested the olficers to arrest the young man. Late last night Policeman Howell met him and placed him under ar rest. When he reached court this morning he was turned over to the detectives at police headquarters, and it was soon learned that the brandy was stolen property. Twq cases of the liquor had been stolen from in front of Ergood's store on 14th street, and'Ellis was locked up until the case can be fur ther investigated. The officers are satisfied that the theft was committed by parsons other than Ellis, ani think he was jirob ably shielding them when he was pretend ing to be working for Defective Lacy. The officers are now locking for the prisoner's supposed confederates. ? Marriage Licenses. Marriage licenses have been issued to the following: John C.

This morning Detectives Horne and Weedon arrested Michael Nolan and locked him up on suspicion that he participated in the robbery of L. F. Fisher of (522 E street northwest. The robbery took place in the park near the Baltimore and Poto mac depot. Fisher had met two young men, with whom he had several drinks, and was then "held up" and robbed of his watch, an album and a small amount of cash. The officers expect to make another arrest in the case this evening. They re covered the stolen watch, which they traced to Nolan, and he says he bought it from a strange man. The Cattle Market.
