Plan by Which Newspaper Men Will lie Admitted, Notwithstanding That the Law Says They Shall Not, And Prohibits the Publishing of the Details of the Exe -ution— The Two Reporters to Be Sworn as Jurors in Order to R-lteve the Prison Officials of All Responsibility. Albany, N. Y., April 11.—There was a consultation of the prison authorities here Wednesday, to perfect the arrange ments for the electrocution of Keramler at Auburn prison. Warden Dunstan, superintendent Lathrop and Doctor Charles McDonald, commissioner of lunacy, discussed the matter at length. The admission of representatives of the press was the hardest part to arrange. The intiic'ing a new method of capital punishment prohibits the publishing of the details of the execution. The pres sure, however, of newspaper men, scientists and doctors is so great that it was decided to go so far as the law would allow. Two newspaper men -one represent ing the United Press and the other the Associated Press—will be admitted. They are to be selecteu at the headquar ters in New York, and must be proven beyound doubt to be newspaper men, and not interested in the success of any company supplying electricity for any purpose. The o iicials are keenly on their guard to prevent the admission of any representative of the Westinghouse company, whose svstem is to bo used, lest some hitch may occur and color be [ given to the points that company raised ■ against electrocution in the appeal of | the Kemmler case. j The two press men will be sworn as I jurors, and if the newspapers publish the details'of the execution the warden and prison officials will not be the ones that will break the law. It is on this theory that they are admitted. Among the other ten jurors will be Elbridge T. (jerry and his associates, who were on the com mission who drafted the law, Referee Tracy Becker and ('ayuga county's judge and district attorney. Beside i these there will he five assistants to Harold Brow n the executioner. THOUGHT SHE WAS DIVORCED, But After Ten Yearn Discovered That She Was Mistaken.
