SWUNG INTO ETERNITY. Patrick John Hartt, the Murderer of Pitts, Pa-s the Penalty for His Crime on the Gallows. The L'rop Falls at II 28 o'clock—Scenes and In cidents at the Gallows- History of the Celebrated Case. With the dawn of this morning was u-hcr''"* in the last rays of daylight that were to gladden the eyes of I'atrick John Hartt, the man who was convicted of the murder of John W. Pitts, at Boulder on November 7th, 1685, and who, after a full and impartial hearing before the judicial tribunals of the land, was sentenced to pay with his life the penalty for the malicious and cold-blooded crime of which he was guilty. After three trials, in two of which he was convicted of murder in the first legree, and alter two appeals to the Su preme court of the Territory, Hartt w as pronounced guilty of shedding the blood of his fellow man without pre text of sufficient magnitude to furnish the slightest justification of the deed, ifence the sence of death, pronounced upon him at the last term of court for this county, was irrevocably settled to be carried into execution to-day. PREPARATIONS FOE THE EXECUTION. All day yesterday carpenters were en gaged in putting up the gallows, in the rear of the Lewis and Clarke county jail, on Breckinridge s reet, and fencing in the space where the legal tragedy was to be enacted. An area of ground about 'JO by 10 teet in dimensions was en closed on the east side of the jail by high board fences, making a contracted space completely shut in from outside view. The jail formed the western boundary of this enclosure, and on the other three sides were board fences twenty feet high. The gallows was situated in the northwest cor ner of the enclosure. The following dia gram will show the exact conditions of the pla ce : _ Bli ECKEN RIDGE STREET. (« ATE. Spectators Stand. The gallows was composed of a trans verse beam resting upon two uprights. The uprights were made of pine wood and stood 12 feet high. The space between them was 10 feet. Two pulleys were at tached to the topi Through these the rope, a half inch hemp cable, passed. The noo-e was made with a slip knot on the end and hung ready for use on the right hand upright. On the left, or westernmost upright, was constructed a box ofjrough pine isards. Inside of this the rope was fastened. On the end of the rope a weight of 286 pounds was attached and this hang about four teet above the ground ready to drop at the signal. It was arranged so that whenever the rope was cut the weight would drop and hoist into the air what ever was attached to the noose. THE NIGHT AND MORNING. The following diary found on Hartfs table shows what the doomed man did during the night. It is in his own hand writing: 9:10. Took a bath. 10:3C. Went to sleep. 12:45. Waked up and smoked a cigar. 1:15. Took lunch. 2:10. Smoked another cigar. 2:30. Went to sleep again. From Jailor Witten we iearn that Hartt .arose about 7 o'clock this morning feeling in good spirits. He ate his breakfast of beefsteak and eggs at 8 o'clock and de voured it with relish, taking a smoke after he finished his meal. At 9:30 his spiritual adviser, Father V. J. Van den Broeck, ar rived, heard his confession, administered holy communion and prayed with the* prisoner. The father remained with him all morning until the hour of execu tion arrived. Sheriff Hathaway read the death warrant to him at 10 o'clock. TAKING OUT THE PRISONER. At 11 o'clock, the hour set for the execu tion, a large crowd had gathered in the street in front of the jail. The sidewalks were lined and the street itself packed with a mass of men, all anxtous to see the execution. Sheriff Hathaway's office was besieged by citizens from early morning, all requesting the privilege of being pres ent at the hanging. He was obliged to decline hundreds, as the law permits him only a limited number of invitations. These were gotten up on cards ruled in black and read as follows : You are respectfully invited to attend the execution of John Hartt, on Friday, February 10th, 1888, at 11 o'clock a. in., at the Lewis and Clarke couDty jail, Helena, Montana. (Signed J. W. Hathaway. Sheriff. February 1, 1888 Such invitations were issued to the judge of the court, dark of the court, two phy sicians, the prosecuting attorney, twelve reputable citizens and as many deputy eheriffs as were necessary to protect the -heriff, in accordance with the provisions of the law on the subject. Of the number invited the great majority responded either in person or by substitute, so that when the execution came oft' about twenty-two gentlemen were admitted within the en closure. At 11:10 Sheriff Hathaway, Under Sheriff Hard, Deputy Sherifl's Gibbs and Walker, Jailor Witten and a Herald re porter entered the jail The reporter was permitted to enter first and see the prisoner. Hartt was in his cell kneeling at the table with the priest praying. On seeing the reporter they arose and Hartt stepped forward to shake hands. He was dressed in a neat suit of black with sack coat and white shirt. His face was clean shaven and his hair neatly dressed. On one finger of his right hand he wore a cameo ring and another ring with a large brilliant setting. He accosted the reporter cheerfully, and then made a few common place remarks, He Raid he felt very well and smiled as he spoke. The interview was necessarily short, and then the sheriff entered. Hartt was readv and accompanied the officer without remon strance. The procession then moved through the jail and into the gallows yard in the following order: 1st, Sherilf Hathaway ; 2d, Under Sheriff Hard ; 3d. Hartt ; 4th, Father Van den Broeck ; 5th Deputy Sher iff Gibbs; 6th. Jailor Witten; 7th the Heeai.d reporter. They proceeded through the rear door of the jail into the yard. Hartt be trayed no trepidation as the gallows canght his sight for the first time, bnt walked with head erect and firm step to the gibbet, where he took his stand under the noose. Father Van den Broeck accompanied him to the platform and stood by him until the end. The Under Sheriff and depntiesthen bound Ham's legs together with straps. Leather bonds were also strapped about his arms and shoulders. hartt's last words. Then Sheriff Hathaway stepped on the platform and said : "Hartt, have you any thing to say? - ' Hartfs lips quivered and his voice sound ed low and restrained as he spoke the fol lowing words, which were scarcely audible: "I wish you all a restful conscience and a useful life on this earth. I hope when you come through this door, you will bring some little child that has no father and mother on this earth for protection. That is all I have to say—Good-by." His remarks were scarcely andible and were heard only by those standing imme diately beside him. among whom was a Herald reporter. What he meant is not known, but it is supposed he referred to his own condition as an orphan and ex pressed the hope that, when any of those present died, he would have no father or mother to mourn his loss. THE HANGING. After Hartt had delivered himself of these strange words, which were addressed to an assemblage as silent as the dead, Sheriff Hathaway with his own hands ad justed the noose about the neck of the doomed man. Hartt stood the ordeal bravely and never flinched as the rope was put over his head and drawn tight about his neck. He only inclined his head toward the priest, who whispered some words in his ear, and then the sheriff' said "Ready." Suddenly Hartt shot up into the air, and in a second his body was dangling to and fro about two feet from the ground. He gave three convulsive struggles, drawing tip his feet a few inches, and then hung perfectly motionless eighteen inches above ground, except for the swaying of the rope. Here Deputy Sheriff' Walker placed the black cap over his head and all was over. The countenance of the crimi nal expressed no suffering. Everything was done 30 well and qaicklv that he suffered as little as possible. The weight fell at exactly 11:28 o'clock, and eleven minutes later the attending physicians, Drs. Morris, Hunter and Grant, pronounced him dead. The doctors kept feeling his pulse from the time drop fell and Dr. Morris applied the stethoscope to his heart. At exactly 11:40 the physicians an nounced that his heart had ceased to heat, and preparations were made for taking down the body. As soon as the signal was given the priest dropped on his knees and was praying with clasped hands when Hartt was swung into eternity. Who cat the rope will never he known, as the weight was enclosed by a high hoard bar ricade and no one saw the operation. At 11:45 the body was lowered into the coffin, a plain deal box which had been provided for the occasion. Then it was ascertained that the man's neck had been broken in two places and that consequent ly he suffered but very little, if any at all. A guard was placed over the remains and at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon they were in terred in the Catholic cemetery, Father Van den Broeck officiating. Thus has the world seen the last of Patrick John Hartt THOSE PRESENT. The attendance at the execution num bered about twenty-five. It included be sides Sheriff Hathaway and staff, Sheriff Coleman, of Deer Lodge county; Sheriff McNeil, of Jefferson county ; Sheriff'Harris, of Yeliowstone county; Sheriff Jones, of Beaverhead county ; Sheriff Templeton, of Park county ; Sheriff Lloyd, of Silver Bow county; Under Sheriff' Hatton, of Deer Lodge connty; ex-Sheriff Churchill of Lewis and Clarke; City Marshal Read; Warden McTague, of the Penitentiary ; Sergent Bashaw and Officer Lane, of the Helena Police force ; E. D. Weed, ex deputy district attorney ; Leon LaCroix, deputy clerk of court; Dr. Morris, of Helena; Dr. Hunter, of Boulder; Dr. Grant, of Yellowstone county; Sheriff' Rader, of Meagher connty, and "twelve reputable citizens'' of Montana besides a force of special deputies. These person ages grouped abont the scaffold in intense silence and remained awe-stricken specta tors of the scene until the gallows had done its fatal work. Then, after the body had been placed in the coffin, they dis persed and left the scene. Too much credit cannot he given Sheriff Hathaway for the manner in which he conducted the execution. It was carried out strictly according to law aDd with the nt' most decornm. Nor did the Sheriff himself shirk the disagreeable duty. With his own bands he adjusted the noose about Hartt's neck and stood with manly fortitude at the scaffold to see the inexorable decrees of justice fully car ried ont. For the faithful performance of his work and the excellent management of the affair he is entitled to the thanks of all good and law-abiding citizens. The law has been enforced, justice vindicated and mnrdir punished by death. The vic tim was young, being but 24 years of age, but his youth did not spare him. He was a good and not trouble some prisoner but his conduct availed not. He was repentant and sorry for his crime, yet his contrition failed to prolong his physical existence. His crime was a malicious mnrder. and all good citizens are satisfied in that his life has paid forfeit for his terrible deed. THE CRIME. The history of the crime has already been published according to the culprit'* own version of the affair. In brief. Hartt shot and killed his fellow man and ha* paid for the deed with his life. He was given every chance to defend himself against the charge, having been tried three times, convicted twice and had his case submitted to the supreme court twice. Following is a succinct history of his-con test with justice: John Hartt shot John W. Pitts on November 7, 1885, in the conrt house at Boulder. Jefferson county. Pitta wae mor tally wounded in the left side of the breast and lingered until December 3d, when he died of bis wound. An antopay showed that the ball had penetrated the lnng and imbedded within it pieces of the overcoat. Hartt had been in jail since he first shot Pitts and has been continuously in jail since. At the May term, 1886, of the Jefferson county court he was indicted hy the grand jnry for mnrder in the first degree. He moved for a continuance, which was granted until the October term of court. . He was tried in October, four days being consumed in obtaining a jnry and hearing the evidence. The cause was heard and the inry charged by Judge Wade, then Chief Justice of Montana. B. C. Brooke was foreman of the jnry. For five long days and nights they deliberated, but with no change in their ballots, which stood eleven for murder in the first degree and one for murder in the second degree from first to last. It ia now known that a ranch man named Rogers is the juror who hong nntil. an agreement being impossible, the conrt dischargad the jury. The next trial occurred in May, 188<, with Chief Justice McConnell upon the bench. Indeed, the first trial ever presided over in Montana by the new judge was the Hartt case, and let it be hère said that by his rulings and construction of the law and by bis charge were the Bar satisfied of Judge McConnell's learning, his ability and his strong sense of justice. The jnry deliberated bnt ten minutes, and through H. O. Johnston, foreman, re turned a verdict of guilty of mnrder in the first degree. Hartt was sentenced to be hnng July 22d, 1887, bnt took an ap peal to the supreme court, which met early in July last. Through a simple failure of the conrt at the May. 1886, term, when he was convicted to grant one of the multifarious technical motions which Hartt interposed apparently for delay only, thesupreme court held that a right had been denied Hartt and he was granted a new trial. In October, last, for the third time, the forty-five witnesses in the case assembled at Boulder, bnt Hartt moved for a change of venue on the ground that the feeling of the people of Jefferson connty was so strong against him that he could not secure an impartial trial. The court granted the mo tion and certified the case to Lewis and Clarke county. On November 21st, 1887, the case was called and the trial begun again at Helena. A. M. Thornburgh was foremen of the jury. The trial lasted three 'days and after two honrs deliberation the jury returned a ver dict of guilty as charged in the indictment. Hartt was sentenced tobe hnng on Friday, February 10, 1888. He took an appeal to the supreme court upon the principal ground that the jnry bad used intoxicating liquor during the trial. In January, Jus tice McLeary, who had read the opinion of the court in July when the case was re versed, again read the opinion but affirmed the judgment, thus leaving no hope for Hartt. All that was now left was an appeal to the Governor. This Hartt made and senti mental sympathizers were not wanting to plead his cause. But. to his credit be it said, Governor Leslie has withstood all appeals for clemency and has allowed the law to take its course. The mnrder was cold-blooded and malicious and the pun ishment is bnt just. The indictment and conviction of Hartt are largely attributable to the efforts of Hon. Wm. H. Hunt, of Helena, who was district attorney when the case came up and who prosecuted it from beginning to end. Mr. Hunt went out of office in De cember, 1886, but owing to his excellent conduct of the case, he was retained pri vately by the county after that to lead the prosecution, then being carried on by Thos. Joye8. c Minty attorney of Jefferson county. Lawyer Duffy, of Butte, was the prominent counsel for the defense and no man can say that he left a stone unturned to save his client. He labored well and indefati gably but his client's guilt was so pro nounced that nothing could save him. That he defended the case successfully is seeD in the numerous trials and reprieves that he secured for Hartt. That he did not clear his client will be a source of satisfac tion to all law-abiding citizens. RETROSPECTIVE. The execution of Hartt is the fifth legal hanging that has taken place in Helena. The first was William Wheat ley, who was executed in 1875 for the murder of Franz Worrel. The second was W. H. Steers, the third l'elky and the fourth Fohrman. The last named was hanged in Helena in 1883 for the murder of his son-in-law, Jacob Kenck. His successor was P. John Hartt, who to-day furnished the fifth victim for the Helena scaffold in thirteen years. ^JACOBS OH, Mi MARK TRADE V WHAT IT IS DOING. The Great Remedy for Pain is a wondei surely, but it is the result only of true medi cal science and research. Such a discovery had a right to promise cure*—it has cured wherever used as directed. Founded upon the intrinsic merit of each element which, in combination, proved to be the perfection of cure, its virtues made it what it is. Every Man, Woman and Child in the United States knows its name and names it as a remedy which should be in ever}' house, for even'home knows its value. As a sterling comforter, the truest relief. It Belongs to the Universe. Canada took it up, and in ever}' province it is the standard cure. It crossed the ocean, on demand, and alike in Scotland, England and Ireland, in the extremes of climate and temperature, it is the same sovereign Con queror of Pain. Distinguished men and physicians of South and Central America have used and recommend it, and street-criers have sung its praise in verse on the streets of Mexico. A member of The South African Parliament praised it in open debate, and the same was done bv a U. S. Senator. In India it won its first golden medal at the Calcutta Exposition, where expert chemists and physicians awarded it its due, and by right it lias won in all similar competitions. One of the most distinguished scholars of Germany thought it liis duty to praise it, and such lias been its meed from Prelates, Potentates and the Press. A distinguished traveler comments upon its use in Egypt. It was the comforter and cure of the lost, half frozen explorers among The Icebergs of the Arctic Seas. It found its place in the knapsacks of the lÿ-itish soldiers in the Soudan, and it is a permanent supply to the medicine chests of her Majesty's war ships. Tl.ii would seem enough to show what it is doing, but one other potent fact can't be disregarded. Another eminent has been captured and it lias taken jxjssession of the trade there. In one shipment iqion one order from Australia 5u0 gross were de livered. It holds its own as the best known remedy of the age for Rheumatism, Neu ralgia,Lumbago, Sciatica and all painful ail ments. And what it is doing now specifically is that it is receiving from nearly all its patrons statements that the pains aired by its healing virtues, from the date of aire to the date of the response, embracing a lapse of years, remain Permanent without Recurrence.

If our government would devote its sur plus revenue to the payment of our nation al debt, the construction of a navy and other things we need, it would be a grept deal better than reducing the duty on sugar or the repeal of the tax on whisky and tobacco. In the creation of a first class American navy we would acquire skill, facilities and means to construct ships of commerce as cheaply as any other nation. Just as in the case of the trans continental railroads and requiring the use of American iron ia their construction, it gave such an impetus to this industry that as one of the results we have outstripped all nations in railroad building. We fully believe that the construction of a navy wonld accomplish the same thing for ocean transportation. At all events we want both a navy and ships of onr own before we think of free trade. Duties we must have to furnish the revenues for govern ment. Direct taxation is out of the ques tion and internal taxes are as unpopular. We see no alternative bnt protection and the development of home markets and home production, catting off foreign sup plies as mach as possible, which drain ns of our precious metals.
