Views of the Murderer on Capital
l?iui Winder, the condemne<l murderer,
who Is la the Baltimore Jail for safe keep
ing. because It was rumored that prepara
tions were being made to lynch him should
lx? remain In the county Jail at Towson,
nays he does not believe In capital punish
ment. but If his.life Is to be taken he pre
fers to be shot rather than hanged. In
conversation, with a reporter he said;
"Killing Isn't a punishment, and I don't
believe in hanging anyway. If they want
to kill me why don't they shoot me? I
would rather be shot at this moment, ten
lo one. than -be hung.
"Now. If they want to punish me, seems
to me that I would be punished If they put
me over there with Will, where I would
have to work and could pay back some of
this money they have spent.
"Gee! Some folks say that a life Impris
onment Is worse than hanging, but you
know every man wants to live as long as
he can. For my part, I would rather die
working In there with Will than be hung."
An effort is now being made to have the
sentence of death commuted to one of life
Imprisonment, many persons believing that
it would toe unjust to hang Winder while
bis nephaw was given a penitentiary sen
tence. The mother of the condemned man
visited him yesterday.
