The first intimation that Kemtnler re
ceived of his approaching do«m wns when
tbe two chaplains, Drs. Yates and llough
ton, entered his œil this morning and told
him his lvwsir luui come. The doomed
man'* face, pole from long confinement,
assumed even a more ghasMy hue, bat
with an effort lie mnrranred that he was
ready. The two clekgymen knelt with tbe
doomed man for a fear moments and
praj ed. The door into the brightly lighted
execution cbamlier was then thrown open
and Kcmmler led oat. The ehair is not
over four steps from the door. In all,
Kemmler did not have to tAke over ten
steps from the bed in the ikon cage where
he has slept for the hist fourteen months
to the fatal chair.
Tlie KiAtnlioR.
Although Ke mailer's face was deathly
pale lie made the abort journey to the
death ebair with comparative firmness and
sank down in his seat. Warden Durst on
und his nsoistant* quickly bound tho
doomed man to the chair, hi* eyes were
blindfolded, and the appnratas was con
nected with his skull and spine. All was
in readiness, and the spectators were not
kept in suspense long. The signal was
given, the murderer's body stiffened, u
slight shudder ran through it, and quick
er thnn thought the deadly current lind
scut William Kemmler's soul before his
Maker. Wheu the body was taken from
the chair it was cold.
A few hours after tho execution the re
mains were taken to the dissecting room
and the autopsy wa* held. The results
cannot be learned ut this writing.
Tlie Witness«*« Present.
In addition to the newspaper men men
tioned who witnessed the execution were
Dr. Char lee F. McDonald, of New York,
cliairmuu of the state lunacy commission;
Dr. George F. Slira«ly, of New York, editor
of The Medical Record; Dr. A. P. South

evening, the hour announced for the con
ference of the witnesses, Warden Durston
weut to the prison iu company with Klec
tricians IS urn es
a n d Huntley.
There was no ap
pearance of unus
ual activity within
the prison walls.
Iuside the war
den's office a con
sultation was held
about tlie arrange
ments for the au
■topsy aud tbe most
»appropriate time
r for the execution.
Dr. Daniel,of Buf
falo, one of tbe
best known sur
geons in the United States, had come pre
pared with all tlie instruments necessary
for the work. Dr. Southwick suggested
that Dr. Daniel had better do the uctual
work on the autopsy and Dr. Spitzka uud
Dr. McDonald were chosen as his assist
ant*, with the uuderstuuding that I)r.
Spitzka would make a special examination
of the nerve tissues- It was suggested also
that Dr. Jenkins, of New York, be called

Testing tlie Apparatus.
When the conference was at an end the
warden asked the party to go with him
th» execution room. The electricians,
under direction of Mr. Davis, were already
there, putting in place the voltmeter,
which the warden took to New York to
repaired lost Friday and which Mr. Davis
brought back with him this morning. The
dynamo was running in the machinery
room, and when the voltmeter had been
adjusted the current was turned on and
several times, aud the double row of iu
candescent lumps on the wall was thrown
in and out of circuit tu demonstrate tint
current's strength. Mr. Davit sold the
meter did not work as satisfactorily as he
could have wished and that he would have
to make name change* in it. The doctors
left Mr. Davis and liis itssistants at work
on lint meter, anti at 9:30 they h>ft the big
building and vetnrued to < lie hotel. The
iron Me with the voltmeter cannot delay
»he execution. The current's strength «au
be tested satisfactorily without it.
('«nicemlng 111« Autopsy.
Dr. Southwick, the author of the new
method of execution, said In nil interview
last night-: "1 have mine prepared tor the
autopsy
which to
mains so as to l>e sure that ilsath has lut/ r
vened before the surgeon's knife is used.
The law requires that the autopsy shall
take place immediately, hut that will bu
inlerprolotl to mean within a disent lime.
As soon os the tempera! ur* of I lie man is
below the point where life cun continue to
exist the operation will be lieguu. So that
exploder the idea that some peo >lo have
had that if the electric shock did not kill
him the surgeon's knife would."
They Will tie Slow.
"Yea," said Dr. Daniel, "there is no Ne
cessity lor performing the Operation direct
ly after the shock has lieen administered.
There would be u groat public outcry if
we did. It is likely that several hours WHI
intervene between the time when the man
is killed and ths time of the autojisy."
The Work of the Current.
"1 hr ve been asked very often," said t)v.
Southwick, "whether the death would l«s
Uistautatieous. This is dependent ou what
you are plouseil to term 'iustautnueous.'
You say Unit the sensation when the sliock
of touching your linger cud is transmitted
to your brain is instantaneous. That sen
ration Gavels ut the rate of 350 feet to tho
second. Now, the rate of tho electric cur
rent is 1,000 times as great; that is, it will
travel at the rate of 230,000 feel n second.
"There will las no struggling bofurs
Krmmler is put in the chair, 1 think. That
is uot the record of men who have beeu
executesl. They usually walk to the gal
lows quietly. As to the action of the eur
rent, you may lie sure that it trill cause one
little twileli, und then the Is sly will he
rigid and motionless. Wheu the surrent
is taken o(T It will collapse und hepeifectly
limp."
The doctors in charge of the autopsy will
prepare a careful story for publication at
the earliest possible moment.
l>i«|»o«ltlon «if (hr llody.
Kenunler has made his will again, leav
ing his books and other little trups to Mr*.
Durston, Daniel McNairgbtmi and a few
others who have been kind to him. A lady
in Buffalo sent him a Bible a short time
ugo, uitd lie lias written his name in It and
w ants it sent back to her.
Kemnilrr's body will probably be buried

Rolved to come here and claim his brother's
body immediately after the execution and
before the physicians could hold an au
topsy. Heretofore the relative« of Kemm

anil taken no more interest in his condi

to t hem.
If Charles Kemtnler doe* demand his
body, the law, it is believed, will uphold
him. If such a demand is made and com
plied witli it will lie a sad blow to tlie
physicians, who are probably attracted
more from a desire to study the effects of
au electric shock apon a human body thou
from mere curiosity.

said that liLst yrnr fiU.iHMTtons of the lake

WASHINGTON, Ang. 8.—The house S|ient
most of the day debating the resolution
reported from the committee on rules ask
ing the secretary of the nary for the reasons
of tlie increase of force at tiie Kittery usvy
yard s* u snbstltute for the Cummings
resolution of inquiry. After adopting the
ivsolution aud receiving the report of the
elections committee in the Clayton-Hreck
iuridge ram, which declares Mr. Breckin
ridge's seat vacant, the general deficiency
bill was taken up in committee of the
whole, hut without finishing it the house
adjourned. The motion of Mr. Bingham
(Fa.) to reconsider the vote by which the
house passed the bill to grant leaves of
alieenco to clerks in first and secoud «lass
postoffice« was tabled.
The Kittery Navy Tard Affair.
Mr.-McKinley (O.l, from the committee
on rules, reported (as a substitute for the
Cummings resolution) a resolution asking
the secretary of the navy for the reasons
for the increase of tlie force at the Kittery
navy yard. Iu speaking of the resolution
Mr. Cummings (N. Y.) said that he rose in
defense of public morality ami public luw,
which had lieen menaced liy a high public
nitlciu). The order increasing tlie force of
the Kittery navy yard looked as though
the design was to use executive power for
partisan purposes. He commented on the
fact that certain shops of the Kittery navy
yard liad been burned iu January ami that
tlie chairman of the committee on naval
affairs (Mr. Bontellc) had appropriated
money for their repair in the nival appro
priation bill.
Chargea Against Public Official*.
He contended that it wns not in the in
terest of good government or of the navy
to reconstruct these shops, hut the secre
tary of tlio nary had ordered an increase of
the force at tlie Kittery navy yurd to re
construct the shops and to repair the Lan
caster and the Monongahela Fifteen years
ago a Republican secretary of the navy had
stated that the Iaucaster was not worthy
of repair and that the Monongahela was in
tolerable condition with a speed of ten and
a half knots. He charged that the Kittery
yard was used for political purposes, and
quoted figures to show that previous to
elections the list of employes was mach
larger than * wa« a month or two after
ward. The majority of the men employed
came from Maine, the state of Thomas
Brackett Reed.
Mr. Cummings asserted tHat it wa« Re
publicanism und not public service that
demand'd the increase of tlie force at the
Kittery navy yard. The re-election to con
gress of '.ke speaker of this house and the
»lake« Serb
that the farming de
re-election of a Republic.-?! from the First
district of New Hampshire were desired.
Tlie republic would read the secretary'»
certiflcate and they would read it aright.
The committee ou riles had reported as a
substitute for liU resolution a resolution
which rsferroil the whole offense to the
offender himself. The answer of the sec*
retary would lis sent to the committee on
luteal affairs, tha chairman of which in sa
Interview ia a New York paper h id char*
nrterized his (Cummings') resolution os the
"most perfect rot imaginable," and stated
that wheu tho report came Unit would bo
an end of the matter.
Mr. Itoututle, of Mnlns, Retorts.
Mr IViutulle <Me.) said that tlie gentle
man lu his search for sensations bad
worked himself lip to a high state of ex
citement over tlie fsot that the secretary of
the navy had really possessed the hardihood
to obey the mandatory instructions of tho
congress of the United States. Mr. C'nm
tilings iuquired when the secretary" of ths
navy had been directed to repair tho Lan
caster auil the Monongahela. Mr. lloutelle
replied that the gentleman's iinustion
snowed that he was entirely ignorant of
the matter sliout which he spoke. Tha
gentleman had complained about the ap
propriation for the reconstruction of these
ships. In ascribing to him (lloutelle) tho
credit of putting that appropriation in tho
naval up|iropriutioii bill tlie gentleman
did him too much honor. The .committee
ou naval at loirs had ununlmot.Vy rccon*.
mended the appropriation.
Ttio Aeessatli
The resolution, Mr. Boutolle said, offered
liy Mr. Cummings was fonnded o.Ntclmin
ologicnl error. Although the elections
generally were held in November, the con
graneioiinl elections in Mnino were held in
September, so that if there were 10,000men
—whether clad in ion km in or not— trans
ported to the Kitter y yard notons of them
could have voted for Bjieaker Reed or tha
representative from New Hampshire. In
conclusion Mr. Bouuflie oiieorvtsl that In
justice to his colleague, the speaker, ha
desired to say that the greatest majority
ever cast for Thomas B. Rei-d w.ls 2,4-13
over Ids Demis'ratic opponent and 1,038
majority in 1008, wl«eu the navy yard had
been [lacked by a Democratic administra
tion. The rmolution was thou adopted—
yeas, 131; nays, 78.
Mr. latcey (Oslo.) submitted tho majority

other means. IIo say* that the reasons for
exclusion are many aud far rooclung, and
quotes criminal statistics showing tha
great number of arrest* of Chinamen in
Son Francis«! fur offenses against state
and municipal laws. The purjwiso of the
bill uow under consideration, the report
says, is to carry into execution the policy
of tlie government in excluding Uliiuese
immigrants. It proposes to make the
term of exclusioa indefinite, und therefor#
practically permanent.
The committee hill excludes all Chinese
from landing in the United States, except
those persons duly accredited to the United
States its ministers plenipotentiary or
other diplomatic representatives, consul
generals, consular and commercial agents,
including other officers of tlie Chinese or
other governments traveling upou tho
