NEW HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND COURIER5 FRIDAY FEBRUARY 1. 1895.
7 IS Klsaiyo VSIlEAl.THYt A Physician's Opinion That It U Not If the Lady la Pretty. From tlie Chicago Tribune Several Chicago physicians whoso names are familiar to the readers of the Tribune were shown a dispatch from Detroit printed In these columns containing the news that an antl-klsa. ing club had been organized In the City iOf the Straits based upon opinions of medical men of that town to the effect that kissing Is an unsanitary pleasure and should stop. One of the doctors quoted said, "The sooner people are ed ucated against kissing1 the better for the community at large. Frequently In my practice I have been called to at tend patients suffering from the most revolting skin and blood diseases re sulting from kissing. Eczema and oth er chronic skin troubles, cold sores as , they are commonly called, diphtheria, thrush, diseases of the tonsils, and even tuberculosis, have frequently produced corresponding diseases in some one the elck person has kissed." It is a matter of regret that no Chica go physician seen by the Tribune was willing to have his name appear on the question at Issue. One of the oldest and highest esteemed of those asked read the dispatch carefully, and with the reservation referred to said: "All depends upon the person to be kissed, Old as I am. If a beautiful woman Bhould court my attention In that di rection I must say I would yield to the temptation and never stop to think of the consequences. I think kissing can be carried to excess. I would say to those who ask me about It professional ly. 'Choose your subject.' " A young, and what women would call handsome, doctor In one of the sky scrapers on Washington Street said It depended upon the location of the oscu- ilation and the duration. "Unless," he continued, "the person kissed has some contagious disease a kiss upon the fore head, or cheek, or hahd would have no evil con sequences', i It is the long, lin gering: kiss between lips and Hps that Is unsanitary. And yet those who indulge In such could not be Induced to give It up no matter what might follow." A middle-aged doctor on Wabash av enue, not far from Jackson street, said: "I have never yet known a man who stopped to consider whether kissing was unhealthy. As for women, It de pends upon who the man Is, But what is the use of going into the subject? You cannot organize a society that will stop It, and as for legislating against it you might as well try to freeze the lake from shore to shore." An old bachelor doctor in the Chicago Onera-House building said rather bluntly: "No harm In kissing that I know of. It's the huggln'. That's what causes the trouble." Inquiry was run in another channel with various results. A South siae wo man who is the mother of a bevy of marriageable daughters confessed that when she remembered the days of her ene-ac-ement with her husband she didn't have the heart to enforce an em bargo on her daughters. It was an equally clever woman who said to her daughter as the latter was going to the parlor to meet her affianced, "No kiss ing," and as the girl went away the mother added: "Don't let me hear of it." To which the wicked daughter re- n-Mfid: "You won't hear, mamma, I cromlse you." The kissing Of babies by most adults is a habit, to a great extent. Neigh borhood feuds have been created by over-particular persons who refused to kiss little ones. A New Violet And a Big One. I From the Ban Francisco Examiner. The little flower which has evoked the poetic tributes of so many fine minds, and a chorus of admiration from pass ers-toy, has never attained such beauty as it now possesses in its latest and most perfect development, the new Bin g-le violet which has been named the '.'California." The purity of the color, the delicacy of the fragrance, the grace of form, and the unusual size of the "Califor nia" place it easily in the lead of all other flowers of its species, and with many it will rank as the most beauti ful of all flowers. This new violet, for such it really is, must rank with the botanical achieve ments of the century, even though, like many other floral successes, its history is a little vague, and its existence seems to some extent to be due to chance ex periment. Professor Emory E. Smith has the credit of introducing the California vio let, and with him Joseph Carbone, as the cultivator of the new flower, must share the honors. The former gentle man, in speaking of the flower, says: "It has been in course of propaga tion for three years, and has now at tained its most perfect form, color, fra- granoe and size. It is a vigorous plant, absolutely free from disease of any kind, and so unlike many other violets. Its flowers are of immense size, sum clently large to more than cover a sil ver dollar. Its color is a clear violet purple and does not fade. The fra grance is intense, and the stems vary in -length from ten to fourteen inches. THIS IS ANEW DRINK. Known as the "Boston Bamboo," and Has Certain Welcome Tonle Effects. Anything In the shape of a before dinner appetizer that will ameliorate the deleterious effects of the Insidious cocktail must certainly be welcomed as a most desirable new-comer. The drink known as the Boston bamboo can perhaps claim all these advantagea It is a certain stomachic, unquestion able in its tonic effects, and, so far as can be discovered, harmless as a bever age. The Boston bamboo is an equal mixture of sherry and Italian ver mouth. The vermouth detracts from the softness of the wine, while the sher ry counteracts the acridness of the bit ters. It ' might be claimed that ver mouth itself Is but a partially dis guised form of absinthe, but this is not the case. AM the poisonous qualities- of absinthe are absent in well-decocted vermouth; although they are both man ufactured from the same mother worm wood. There is almost the same pro portion of alcohol in vermouth as there is in absinthe, but any drinker of the latter will tell you that he fails to get the old familiar sought after effect Irom the yellow wine of Turin that he never falls to obtain from the green d mon of the Gaul. Cocktail drinkers should welcome the Boslton bamboo, for the reason that, al though they cannot get from it th same suspension of thought attributa ble to a distillation of rye, there is n doubt as to its efficacy as a stomachic tonic and appetizer. AX ELECTRICAL SLIP In the Interest of Justice. Robert Barr in English Illustrated Magnzlno, Public opinion had been triumphantly vindicated. The Insanity plea had brok en down, aid 'Albert Prior was sentenc ed to be hanged by the neck until he was dead, and might the Lord have mercy on his soul. Everybody1 agreed that it was a righteous verdict, but now that he was sentenced they added "Poor fellow!" Al'bert Prior was a young man wh had had more of his own way than was good for him. His own family father mother, brother and sisters had given way to him so much that he appeared to think the world at large should do the same. The world differed with him Unfortunately, the first to oppose hi violent will was a woman a girl al most.' She would have nothing to do with him. and told him so. -He storm ed, of course, but did not look upon her opposition as serious. No girl in her senses could continue to refuse a young man of his prospects In life. But when he heard that she had become engaged to Young Bowen.the telegraph operator, Prior's rage passed all bounds. He de termined to frighten Bowen out of his place, and called at the telegraph office for that laudable purpose; but Bowen was the night operator, and was absent. The day man, with a smile, not Know Ing what he did, said Bowen would like ly be found at the Parker place, where Miss Johnson lived with her aunt, her parents being dead. , Prior ground his teeth and departed He found Miss Johnson at home, but alone. There was a stormy scene, end insr with the tragedy. He fired four times at her, keeping the other two bul lets for himself. But he was a,cc and a our at heart, and when It came to the point of putting two bullets Into himself he quailed, and thought it best to escape. Then electricity did him its first disservice. It sent nls, description far and wide, capturing him twenty-five miles from his home. He was taken back to the county town where he lived and lodged In jail. Puiblio opinion, now asserted itself. The outward and visible sign of its action was an omnious gathering of dark-browed citizens outside the jail There were determined mutterings among the crowd rather than out spoken anger, but the mob was the more dangerous on that ac count. One man In its midst thrust his closed hand toward the sky and from his fist dangled a rope. A cry like the growling of a pack df wolves went up as the mob saw the rope, and they clamored at the gates of the jail 'Lynch him! Jailer, give up the keys was the cry. ' V1. . ','." ard the sky and from his fist dangled a rope, and they clamored at the gates of the Jail. "Lynch him! Jailer, give up the keys!" was the cry. The agitated sheriff knew his duty but he hesitated to perform it. But the keys were not given up. The clamor had ceased. A ynung man with pale face and red eyes stood on the top of the stone wall that surrounded the goal. He held up his hand and there was instant silence. They all recogniz ed him as Bowen, the night operator, to whom she had been engaged. "Gentlemen," he cried, and his clear voice reached the outskirts of the crowd, "don't do it. Don't put an ever lasting stain on the fair name of our town. No one has ever been lynched in this county, and none in this state so far as I know.. Don't let us begin it. If I thought the miserable scoundrel In side would escape If I thought his mon ey vould buy him off I'd be the man to lead you to batter down those doors and heng him on the nearest tree and you kr.ow It." There were cheers at this. . ")3ut he won't escape. His mon ey can't buy him off. He will be hang ed ifcy the law. Don't think its mercy I'm preaching; Its vengeance!" Bowen shook his clenched fist at the gaol. That wretch has been in hell ever since he heard your shouts. He'll be in hell, for he's a dastard, until the time his trembling legs carry him to the scaffold. I want hini to stay in this hell until he drops through into the other, If there is one. . X want him to suffer some of the misery he has caused. Lynching is over in a moment. I want that murdered to die by the slow, merciless cruelty of the law." Even the worst in the crowd shudder ed as they heard these words and real ized as they looked at Bowen's face that his thirst of revenge made their own seem almost innocent. The speech broke up the crowd. The man with the rope threw it over Into the gaol yard, shouting to the sheriff: "Take care of it, old man, you'll need it." And so it came about just as Bowen knew It would, that all the money and influence In the Prior family could not help the murdered.and he was sentenced to be hanged on September 21 at 6 a. m. And thus public opinion was satis fied. But the moment the sentence was an nounced and the fate of the young man settled a curious change began to be noticed in public opinion. It seemed to have veered around. There was much sympathy for the family, of course. Then there came to be much sympathy for the criminal himself. People quoted the phrase about the worst use a man could be put to. Ladies sent flowers to the condemned man's cell. After all, hanging him, poor fellow, would not bring Miss Johnson back to life. How ever, few spoke of Miss Johnson, she was forgotten by all but one man, who ground his teeth when he realized the instability of public opinion. Petitions were got up, headed by the local clergy. Women begged for signa tures and got them. All except one, and even he was urged to sign by a tearful lady, who asked him' to remem ber that vengeance was the Lord's. "But the Lord has His instruments," said Bowen, grimly, "and I swear to you, madam, that if you succeed In get ting that murderer reprieved I will be the instrument of the Lord's ven geance." Oh, don't say that," pleaded the lady. "Your signature would have such an effect. You' were noble once and saved him from lynching; be noble again and save him from the gallows." "I shall certainly not sign. It Is, It you will pardon me, an Insult to ask me. If you reprieve him you will make a murderer of me, for I will kill him when he comes out, if it is twenty years from now. You talk of lynching; It Is such work as you are doing that makes lynching possible. The people seem all with you now, more shame to them, but the next murder that is committed will be followed by a lynching, Just because you are successful to-day." The lady left Bowen with a sigh, de pressed because of the depravity of hu man nature, as Indeed she had every right to be. ' The Prior family was a rich and in fluential one. The person who is alive has many to help; the one in the grave has few to cry for justice. Petitions calling for mercy poured in on the gov ernor from all parts, of the state. .The good man, whose eye was entirely on his own re-election, did not know what to do. If any one could have shown him mathematically that this action or the other would gain or lose him so many votes, his course would have been clear, but his own advisers were uncer tain about the matter. ,A mistake in a little thing like this might easily lose him the election. Sometimes It was rumored that the governor was going to commute the sentence to lmprison- People claimed, apparently with Jus tice, that surely Imprisonment for life was a sufficient punishment for a young man, but every one knew In his own heart that commutation was only the beginning of the fight, ana that a fu ture governor would have sufficient pressure brought to bear upon him to let the young man go. Up to the 20th of September the gov ernor made no sign. When Bowen ent to his duties on the night of the 20th he met the sheriff. 'Has any reprieve arrived yet?" ask ed Bowen. The sheriff shook his head sadly. He had never yet hanged a man and did not wish to begin. No, said the sheriff. "And from what I heard this afternoon none Is likely to arrive. The governor has made up his mind at last that the law must take Its course." "I'm glad of that," said Bowen. "Well, I'm not." After 9 o'clock messages almost ceas ed coming In, and Bowen sat reading the evening paper. Suddenly there came a call for the office, and the oper ator answered. As the message came over the wire Bowen wrote It down mechanically from the clicking instru ment, not understanding its purport but when he read it he Jumped to his feet with an oath. He looked wildly around the room, then realized with a sigh of relief that he was alone, except for the messenger boy who sat dozing in the corner, with his cap over his eyes. He took up the paper again, and read it with set teeth. Sheriff of Brenting county, Brenting- vllle: Do not proceed further with the" execution of Prior. Sentence commut ed. Documents sent off ty to-night mail registered. Anstver that you un derstand this message. JOHN DAY, Governor." Bowen walked up and down the room with knitted brow. He was In no donbt as to what he would do, but he wanted to think over it. The telegraph instrument called to him and he re turned to it, giving the answeritig click, The message waB to himself from th operator at the capital, and. It told him he was to forward the sheriff's telegram without delay, and report to the office at the capital a man's life depended on it, the message concluded. Bowen an swered that the telegram to the sheriff would Immedlately.be gent. Taking another telegraph blank, he wrote; , ', .'. .' "Sheriff of Brenting county, Brenting- ille: Proceed with execution of pflor, No reprieve will be sent. Reply if you understand this message. JOHN DAY, Governor.' It Is a pity that it cannot be written that Bowen felt some compunction at what he was doing. We like to think that, when a man deliberately commits a crime, he should hesitate and pay enough deference to the proprieties- as to feel at least a temporary regret, even if he goes on with his crime afterward Bowen's thoughts were upon the dead girl, not on the living man. He roused the dozing telegraph messenger. 'Here," fie said, "take this to the gaol and find the sheriff. If he is not there go to his residence. If he Is asleep wake him up. Tell him this wants an nswer. Give him a blank and when he as filled It up bring it to me, give the message to no one else, mind." The boy" said "Yes, sir," and departed into the night. He returned so quickly that Bowen knew he had found the sleepless sheriff at the gaol. The mes sage to the governor, written In a trem bllng hand by tne snerlrr, was; "I un- erstand that the execution is to take place. If you should change your mind, for God's sake telegraph as soon as possible. I shall delay execution Until last moment allowed by law." Bowen did not send that message, but another. He-laughed and then checked himself in alarm, for his laugh sounded strange. "I wonder If I am quite sane," he said to himself. "I doubt it." The night slowly wore on. A man representing a press association came in after 12 and sent a long dispatch. Bowen telegraphed It, taking the chanc es that the receiver would not commun icate with the sender of the reprieve at the capltol. He knew how mechanical ly news of the greatest importance was taken off the wire by men who have automatically been doing that for years. Anyhow all the copper and zinc in the world could not get) a message into Brentlngvllle, except through him, un til the day operator came on and then It would be too late. The newspaper man, lingering, asked If there would only one telegrapher on hand after the execution. "I shall have a lot of stuff to send over and I want It rushed. Some of the papers may get out specials. I would have brought an operator with me, but we thought there was going to tie a re prieve although the sheriff didn't seem to think so," he added. "The day operator will be here at 6, I will return as soon as I've had a cup of coffee, and we'll handle all you can write," answered Bowen without look ing up from the Instrument. "Thanks. Grim business. Isn't It?" "It is." "I thought the governor would cave; didn't you?" "T didn't know." "He's a shrewd old villain. He'd have Inst next election if he'd reprieved this man. People don't-want to see. lynching introduced and a weak-kneed governor is Judge Lynch's friend. Well, good-night; see you in the morning." "Good-night," said Bowen. D'aylight gradually dimmed the lamps In the telegraph room, and Bowen start ed and caught his breath as the church bell 'began to toll. It was ten minutes after 6 when Bow en's partner, the day man, came in. "Well, they've hanged him," he said. Bowen was fumbling among some pa pers on his table. He folded two of them and put them in his Inside pocket. Then he spoke: "There will be a newspaper man here in a few moments with a good deal of copy to telegraph. Rush it off as fast as you can and I will be back to help you before you are tired." As Bowen walked toward the Jail he met the scattered group of those who had been privileged to see the execu tion. They were discussing capital pun ishment, and some were yawning, com plaining about the unearthly early hour chosen for the function they had just beheld. Between the outside gate and the Jail door Bowen- met the sheriff, who was looking ghastly and sallow in the fresh morning light. , "I have come to give myself up," said Bowen, before the official could greet him, "To give yourself up? What for?" "For murder, I suppose." "This no time for joking, young man," said the sheriff, severely. "Do I look like a humorist? Read that." First Incredulity, then horror, over spread the haggard face of the sheriff as he read and reread the dispatch. He staggered .back against wall, puttln up hi3 arm to keep him from falling. "Bowen," he gasped. "Do you do you mean to to tell me that this mes sage came for me last night?" 'I do." 'And you you suppressed It?" 'I did and Bent you a false one." 'And I have hanged a reprieved man?" , ' "You have hanged a murderer yes. "My God! My God!'5 Cried the sheriff. He turned his face on his arm against the wall and wept. His nerves were gone. He had been up all night and had never hanged a man before. Bowen stood there until the spasm was over. The sheriff turned indig. nantly to him, trying to hide the feel Ing of shame he felt at giving way, In anger at the witness of It. "And you come to me, you villain, be cause I said I would help you if you ever got into a tight place?" "Damn your tight place!" cried the young man, " I come' to give myself up I stand by what I do. I don't squeal There will be no petitions got up for me. What are you going to do with me?" "I don't know, Bow.en. I don't know," faltered the official,', ori the point of breaking down. He did not wish to have to hang another maity and a friend at that. "I'll have to.fsee the governor. I'll leave by the first ttaln. I don't sup pose you'll try to escape." . : I'll be here when you want me." So Bowen went back to help the day operator, and the j sheriff left by the first train for the capital. , Now a Strang thirij? happened. . For the first time within Human recollection tha newsnannrs vere! urjnnlnious in oom mending the conduct of the head of the state, the organs of the governor's own party lavishly praising: him; the oppo sitio'n sheets grudgingly admitting that he had more backbone than they had given him credit for. Public opinion like the cat of the simile, had Jumped, and that unmistakably. "In the name of all that's wonderful sheriff," said the bwvlldered governor, "who signed all thpse petitions? If the papers wanted the man hanged, why In the fiend's name didn't they say so be fore and save me all this worry? Now how many know of this suppressed dis patch?" . . "Well there's you and your subordi nates here and " "We'll say nothing about It." 'And then there is me and Bowen In Brentlngvllle. That's all." 'Well, Bowen will keep quiet for his own sake, and you won't mention it." 'Certainly not." "Then let's all keep quiet. The thing's safe if some of those newspaper fellows don't get after It. It's not on record on the books and I'll burn all the docu ments." And thus It was. Public opinion was once more vindicated. Tne governor was triumphantly re-elected as a man with pome stamina about him. the great SKIN CURE Instantly Relieves TORTURING Skin Diseases And the most distressing forms of itching, burning, bleeding, and scaly skin, scalp, and blood humors, and will in a majority of cases permit rest and sleep and point to a speedy, perma nent, and economical cure when physicians, hospitals, and all other methods fail.

"HALLECK." fftnattctal. Rumors Entirely Governod the Stock Mar ket Yesterday. New York, Jan. 31. The stock market was governed entirely to-day by the rumors current about the conference be tween the assistant secretary of the treasury and the local and foreign bankers. The conference lasted nearly all day, and at Its conclusion it was understood on the street that a call for public subscriptions for $100,000,000 4 per cent, bonds will 'be issued shortly, and that .the foreign (bankers will take all of the bonds not subscribed for by home investors. The reports had a weak ening effect on the sterling exchanges, and actual rates were reduced about 1-321-16. Government bonds were also lower at the board. The withdrawals of gold from the sub-treasury were smaller than for some days past. Taken altogether a more confident feeling prevailed on the belfbf that the ngotlatlons now going on between the treasury officials and bankers will tend to relieve the financial .tension. The greatest, improvement was In Manhat tan, which rose 2 per cent, to 109,i. It was eald In the 'board that the last of a big short interest had. been covered up to-day. Louisville and Nashville moved up 1 to 51, the- foreigners having been large ibuyers of this stock, as well as of St. Paul, which advanced 1 to 66. Chicago Gas moved up to 74 on a revival of the rumor that the inside troubles had been adjusted and that certain of the old directors will retire shortly. Lead was also In demand and advanced 1 to 3214- Missouri Pacific, the grangers, Western Union, Lake Shore, Union Pacific, Northern Pacific preferred, Big Four and the coalers scored gains ranging from to V4, per cent. In regard to the coalers it was stated that the sub-committee of sales agents recently appointed to compile statistics for the presidents will com plete their work next week, and that the latter will then, be ready to take up the tonnage basis plan. General Electric after an early rise to 31 fell to Z98. Speculation closed firm with prices from to 1 per cent, higher than on yesterday. Bay State Gas declined ano uenerai Electric 1. in the in active shares Hocklngi Valley rose 2 to IS, and Pullman Palace 1 to 158. The bona market was Irregular. Sales were $922,000.
