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.

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.
