ELECTROCUTED INT) ETERNITY Slocum. 1'oid, Smiler and the Pap Jugiro Suffer Death by Electrocution. THEIR DEATH SAID TO BE PAINLESS. Witnesses Make an Iron-Clad Agree ment to Preserve Secrecy but someone Peached. Whisperings That the Condemned Men DId Not Instantly ltle-Doctors Are Silent. Sixt Sim;, N. Y., July 7. - Four mur derers were put to death by electricity in the state prison here early this morning for the crime of murder. The men were James J. Slocum, who killed his wife at 7 Cherry street, Dec. 31, 1889; Harris A. Smiler, ex-Salvation army captain and bigamist, who murdered his second wife on April 3, 1889. at 28 Seventh avenue; Joseph Wood, a negro acqueduct laborer, who murdered a fellow-laborer, an I al ian named Carlo Huffy, in May. 1889, and Shibuyn Jugiro, an ignorant Japanese sailor who brutally killed a fellow coun tryman. Mury Canni. in a James street boarding house. The execution of the four men is declared to have been per fectly successful and without any of the horrors attending the execution of the murderer Kemmiler at the Auburn prison. There are. however. statements from witnesses which do not :ontirni the assertions by the ollicials.

SItx SiN.a, July 7.-The killing of the four murderers. Slocum, Smiler, Wood and Jugiro, was done this morning. Slocum was killed at 4:42!2; Smiler was put to death al 5:14; Wood met his doom at 5::39; Jugiro was killed at h:(1. The entire time consumed in executing the four men was an hour and twenty three and one-half minutes. The mis takes of the electrical experts which made the execution of Kemmler in part a failure were carefully avoided today. The causes of the accidents at Auburn were known to the warden at Sing Sing and they had been anticipated in the arrangements for the execution of the I four men. The tested voltuae of the dynamos had been brought up to :30X) while the estimated voltage which was turned into Kemmler's body was only 50. The weakness of the current at the Keinicclr execution was chargeable in part to the slipping of the dynanosi belts and sp-cial pre cautions had been taken to avoid this today. The machine used was the Westinghouse, a counterpart of the one used at Auburn, but it was supple mented by a smaller dynaimo intended to augment the current. Dr. Alphonso D. Rockwell left the psri:on at a coin paratively early loar and it is under stood took the train for New York. lIe said the executions were an uniualitied success and the death of the men was painless. One of the witnesses of the electrocutions, whose name for obvious reasons cannot be printed, gave the fol lowing account of the occurrences in the death chamber: When the witnesses had gathered in the chamber some of them appeared very nervous and all showed signs of great strain on their sensibilities. A sliding door which concealed the switchboard on the outside of the executioner's closet was raised and the witnesses gathered about. Drs. McDonald and Rockwell and Prof. Landy, scientists In charge of the electrocution, who proceeded to sig nal the electrician in the dynamo-room. The five-bells signal to get ready was soon followed by one toll, which signified "turn on the current." Immediately the incandescent lamps on the switchboard gave out their white light and the sci entists turned the current into the volt meter, then into the ampermeter, and when fully satisfied with its indicated power they informed the warden. Warden Brown, Deputy Warden Con naughton and two keeper deputies then entered the death cell building to bring forth the trembling wretch who was the first to pay the penalty for his crime. Fathers (Creden and Lynch were engaged with Slocum when Warden Brown and his deputies entered. HIieurm had been selected as the first victim and as sown as the priests finished their supplications he said he was ready and ste out of his cell with alacrity. The walk to death began. Following the warden and his deputy came Slocum between two priests who held aloft in front of him the crucifix at which he gazed. The two keeper deputies brought up the rear of the fateful procession. Slowly the heavy doors swung back and with solemn tread and mien the little procession walked into the room where the silence of death prevailed. They had but a few steps to take. The chair was directly in their front. As the leaders parted the chair stood out in all awfulness before the man about to sit in it and die. Slo cuni halted at the warden's command just on the edge of the rubber mat which was to protect those who wsre watching his life go out. The doomed man's gaze was riveted on the chair. Then it wan dered to the dangling wire and closet from which it was suspended. Back to the chair it came like a needle to the magnet, and he started as though lie had received a shock from the wire when the warden began reading the death warrant while the reverened mien engaged in silent prayer. The witnesses were grouped to the left of the chair. The scientists stood in front of the switchboard, watching the current which they read like a book as it flashed in the lamps and through the recording instruments. The executioner was heard to rise from his chair in the closet and place himself ready to do his duty. With an attempt at a smile Slo cum seated himself in the chair and leaned his head back against the rubber rest as though he was simply preparing to be shaved. The forced smile re mained on his face and as Fathers Cree den and Lynch took up a position in front of him he again directed his gaze to the cross while Connaughton began fastening the straps. Siocum's eyes were clear and he appeared to be in perfect physical condition. He took his eyes from the cross long enough to aid Deputy Warden Connaughton in his task, and then until the shield was placed on his face his lips moved in prayer and he looked tixedly at the cross. Straps crossed and recrossed his body and his legs were tightly hound to the foot-rest. Then his arms were fastened and Slocum could no longer move a muscle. Finally an oddly-arranged set of straps that bound his chair in one position and the cloth which covered his eyes were put in place. Now Drs. McDonald and Htiak well and Prof. Landy approached to at tach the electrodes. A positive electrode was placed on Shlocuins head, the same as in the Kennuler electrocution, a 5egn tive electrode was attached to the right leg, his trousers having been rolled up for this purpose before Slocum was bound in the chair. When the electrodes had been satisfac torily adjusted and the wires attached the three scientistsglancedat the switch board and said that the current was steady and registered 1,0t) volts. Drs. McDonald and Rockwell stood on either side of the chair. Other physicians among the witnesses also drew near while laymen stood back as though not sure of their nerves. llrs. Daniels, South wick and Ward took special interest in these preliminaries and with watch in hand waited the signal. Prof. Landy's hand grasped the handle of the switch which turned the current into the wires in the electrocutioner's closet. Warden Brown raised his hand and Prof. Landy turned the switch. Then the warden tapped on the closet. The unknown inside gave a quick pull to his rubber covered lever. The electric fluid was released and before the sound of the tap reached Slocum's ears and like lightning's flash it sped through his body. There was not a tremor of the body as the physician counted the sec onds and when Prof. Landy turned off the current Sloeun, sat rigid and lifeless in the chair. When the electrodes were removed it was di-covcred that the skull and flesh (of the leg had been slightly hurned hut there was no smell of roast inu tiesh such ut mnade th' Keommler eleetruention so horrible. 'TIhe straps were uniloosel and the holJy carried hJak into the rear room. S(iJJ r did not hesittte when told his hour 1;i e"-n Lot whleit the death chair tppeared It irtn him he atmost fell to the floor. Ilis knees knocked tolether and but for the support of his spiritual advisers he would certainly have tett lIpsetl. Warden lirown ';uiekly read the death warrant and Smiler was hastily seated In the chair. His face took on a ghastly hue and Connaughton got no assistance from his victim in arranging the straps. Seniler was bound and the electrodes applied in a much briefer time than with Slocum and in a few see onds Smiler was dead. The same slight burning under the electrodes was noticed as in Slocum's case. Wood had been prepared by Fathers Creeden and Lynch while Smiler was going to his death and he was all ready. He uttered no word when his time came. He walked to death supported by priests. Wood betrayed no emotion when he gazed on the chair, but kept his eyes fixed on the crucifix. He sat down in the chair directly and his binding was accomplihed so quickly that it was only 24 minutes after Smiler died until death came to him. It was becoming easy to kill men. Witnesses displayed no emotion. There was nothing to cause nausea, and death came to its victim nso quickly that it was all over before they realized it. Jugiro at first refused to leave his cell, but when Connaughton said "come on Joe, be a brave man," the Jap walked out quietly. Two additional keepers marched one on each side of the Jap while the chaplains followed behind the warden and his deputy. The Jap did not seem to comprehend the purpose of the chair and seated himself without protest. A keepersassisted Connaughton in hind ing the Jap and the last act was quickly accomplished. The current was allowed to remain In the Jap's body about three seconds longer than contact with the others, accordingly his skull and leg were strongly marked by the electrodes. Jugirn's body was taken away. six bells were struck as a signal to the electrician in the dynamo room that all was over and the witnesses returned to the war den's room. There is an interesting fact connected with the experiments made yesterday in the presence of witnesses of today's elec trocution, which has a bearing on the seeming inefficiency of a single contact. A horse was brought in to bhi killed. The dynamo was run up to a speed which would generate from 1,:,00 to 1,000 volts, the force of the current which it had been determined would be turned into the bodies of the condemned men today. The first contact on account of the greater resistance of the animal was 28 seconds. It seemed to have stunned him, and the second current and third were turned on before the work was completed. The necessity of two con tacts which is affirmed to have been the case in each of the electrocutions today finds its excuse, if not its explanation in the experience with the horse at yester day's experiment. Witnesses of the execution signed an agreement last night that they would not reveal what occurred within the ex ecution chamber. All of the witnesses signed the agreement. It is said the agreement was drawn up in the office of the attorney general at Albany. It was supposed to be iron-clad. Autopsies were performed by 4 o'clock and a corp of physicians left the depot a short time after that for New York and Albany. Dr. McDonald, who conducted the execution and autopsy, was asked for a statement. He declined to give any in formation saying the results would be given out in Albany from official sources. Asked to deny the statement that the men did not die instantly he said: I have nothing to say as to that. Un consciousness was immediate and the men suffered no pain. They made no resistance at all. Do you deny that they were burned, was asked. I decline to be interviewed on that point. Dr. Ward was asked: Did the first shock kill the wen. and he said: I do not care to answer that; I think the exe cution successful. 1)r. McDonald was asked how many volts were used and he declined to an swer. All of the witnesses have gone and the prison has returned to its natural state. Warden Brown says all the information will be given out at the office of the superintendent of prisons in Albany. The bodies of Jugiro, Wood and Slocum will be buried late tonight in the Potter's field in quick lime. Smilers body viil be removed by his wife in the morning. An autopsy on the bodieswascommenced early in the morning and lasted until well along in the aftirnoon. Those who conducted the operations were Doctors McDonald. Rockwell, Southwick, Dan iels and Prof. Laudy. The body of Jugiro was the first to be placed under the dissecting knife. As to the result of these examination there appears to be a difference of opinion among those who took part in the autopsy. Some of the physicians assert that no burns or marks were discovered while others tell exactly an opposite story. Dr. Rockwell said that the dynamo worked perfectly and that the force of the current was between 18W0 and 2000 volts. ALL QUIET AT SING SING. The Bodies of the Dead Murderers Buried in Quick Lime. SIN" SiNe, July 8.-Everything about the big gray state prison where Joseph Wood, Harris A. Smiler, James Slocum and Shibera Jugiro. the four murderers, were yesterday killed in the death chair has resumed its wanted aspect. The steep hill at the side of the prison where crowds yesterday awaited news of the exeeution is today deserted. The bodies of the four murderers will be buried at 4 o'clock this afternoon. No services will be held in the prison or at the grave and the bodies will be buried in quick I lime so that everything will be destroyed. It was understood some one would claim Smiler s body and gjve it a pi ivate burial but no one has alled for it. Warden Drown returned from New bury this morning. He had been read ing the morning newspapers and had not failed to note some of the caustic com mints upon his otmicial conduct at the executions. lie said to a reporter he had carried out the law carefully and to his own satisfaction. It was his duty rigidly to obey the law and he had done so. No one will be allowed to be present at the burial of the murderers except of ficials designated for that duty. HOMICIDE.

ITS EFFECT UPON THE ITATA'S CASE. Assistant Attorney General Tele graphs the U. S. Marshal to Libel the Vessel And Turn Her Over to the Civil Authorities in California to be Tried in the Courts. THE ROBERT AND tINNIE. The Libel Against the Schooner Dis missed by Judge Ross. WASHINGTON, July 7.-The decision of Judge Ross' court yesterday dismissing the libel against the schooner Robert and Minnie, which vessel supplied arms to the Itata, was a great surprse to offi cials in Washington. It was generally believed the case against her was much stronger than that which could be made out against the Itata, and notwithstand ing the reservation made by Judge Rose in his decision it is felt his action will cause the failure of the original libel lodged against the Chilian vessel, al though she may still be held on some technical charge connected with her es cape while under legal detention. This outcome would be a severe disappoint ment to state and naval department ofli cials after the expenditure, direct and indirect, in the chase of the Itata that is estimated to run up closely in the neigh borhood of $100,(X)J. A telegram was received at the depart nient of justice today from United States Marshal Gard at San Diego. Cal., asking instructions as to his course in regard to the seized Chilian ereamnir Itita. In re sponse the acting attorney general tele graphed United States Attorney Cole at San Diego to libel the vessel at once and turn her over to the United States mar shal by due process of law. By special arrangement with the navy department the vessel will be transferred to the cus tody of the civil authorities today. THE ITATA. No Action Has Yet Been Taken In the Matter. SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 7.-United States Marshal Gard arrived from Los Angeles last night. He has taken no action as regards the Itata and said to an Associated Press representative this morning that the vessel would be left in charge of Collector Barry until the United States District Attorney Cole had prepared papers in the case. The Itata will be held on three charges: First- -Violating the neutrality laws. Second --Contempt in leaving, while under arrest. Third Violation of the navigation laws. Marshal Gard says no instructions have been received from Washington either by him or the district attorney. The Charleston came into harbor this morning awaiting orders.
