Execution of Prado, the Murderer,
On the SoafToid at Paris
- Yesterday. "
Description of the Horrible Scene
of Cutting Off the Pris
Pari, Deoember 28. Prado, the mur
derer of Marie Aquetant, his mistress, was
guillotined this morning in the Plaoe de
la Rbquette. He presented a firm de
meanor to the last. He refused to make
a confession, and also declined the serv
ices of the chaplain. -
New Yobk, December 28. A World ex
tra gives the following details of the exe
cution of Prado: The death was witnessed
by 200 artists, newspaper men, aotors,
lawyers, and politicians who possessed in
fluence sufficient to obtain admission
within the sentry lines to the Plaoe de la
Roqnette. He died with nruoh the same
bravado as did Prazzine, bis former chum
and counterpart. The soene was ma oh
more orderly and not the slightest mis
hip ooonrred is ijfee work of M. De I bier,
In fifty seconds from the appearance at the
prison gate his bleeding head lay in the
basket. In front of the crates of the
prison, where the exeoution took plaoe,
were found a group of men, among whom
were seen several of the most distin
guished men in France. Near the line of
trees on the upper Bide of the path stood
Manuel Sully, of the Coined ie Franoaise;
near him Armand Silvestre and Henri
Roohefort, aud Alphone Dondet was said
to be present.
Prado in walking from the pris n to the
guillotine showed co eigns of fear. His
arms were tightly pinioned behind his
biok, so tightly indeed that his head was
drawn far Lavond the perpendicular. His
heavy locks S(. en to suoh. an advantage in
the court- room, when he confronted and
shook ' thtm at M. Guillot, jude de'iu
struotian, were gomn His apparel seem
ingly consisted of a heavy woolen under
ehirt aod dark' trousers. The shirt had
been roughly cut away from abont the
neck and shoulders.
In front of the guillotine a board stood
upright to the height of five feet. In the
top of it was a lunetts. - As Prado neared
this board a most dreadful series of inci
dents followed eaohother with the rapidity
of lightning. The trembling abbe stepped
apart. "Four burly ' men dressed iu
bluuaes of blue and white striped ticking,
who had nut been seen beforu, sprang for
ward, seized the condemned m.m started

it had been wheeled forward until his nook
was under the glittering knife, upon whioh
the morning light had begun to gleam.

daring ull this terrible scene, now readied
forward and fixed a wooden collar over
the back of the prisoner's neck. Then the
knife was sprung aud the keen steel struck
the neck as it might have collided with a
rubber oar spring. It went through, and
the head of Trado lay among the Bhavings
beyond. The surgeon placed his hand on
the trunk and said: "II est morte ." (He
An immense orowd collected outside
the prison last night and remained until
Prado had been exeonted. The rabbis
spent the time singing oomio songs and
amusing themselves in other boisterous
ways. Prado slept well nntil 6 o'olook
this morning. He protested his innocenoe
to the last and deolared against the in
justice of this world. He refused to dis
close his real name. When the jailers
oame to pinion his limbs he offered no
resistance, and while they were engaged
in this operation he shed one tear. Tne
sight of the guillotine appeared to hypro
The story of Prado's crime briefly told
is as follows: His viotim, Marie Aqnetant,
was a dashing demi-monde, of Paris, sup
ported by an indulgent lover. On the
evening of January 14, 1886, she made the
aoqu aintanoe of Prado at the Eden theater.
They left the place and repaired to her
apartments. While there the man did bis
best to oonoeal his identity from Marie's
maid. At 2 o'olook in the morning M.
Bles, Marie's former lover, called, and was
furious at th information that a strange
man was in ' Marie's room. He
burst the door in and discovered
Marie lying before the fireplace dead with
her throat oat, ber.diamonds and jewelry
gone and the stranger bud; disappeared.
Searoh was made for the murderer but
without sucoess. ' Some time later Prado
was arretted while trying to rob a jewelry
store. He shot a policeman in the jaw,
who later sncceeded in getting him to the
lockup. After bis capture Eugenie For
estner, a dtmi monde, and Manressette
Conneaux,' a yooog married womau of
Bordeaux, were arrested on a charge of
reoeiving stolen goods whioh had been
given them by Pardo. It then developed
that Engeoie was his mistress aud Man
ressette bis fiancee.
The lattsr's statement in court
was a strange romance of love
and crime. Pardo bad confessed
to Eugenie the murder of Marie, and she
intnrn told Mme. Msnressette.who was pre
vailed upon by a priest, to whom she con
fessed, to make her statement public.
His trial and conviction soon followed.
The case has raised Eugenie Forestener to
the pinnacle of socoess in the world in
whioh she lives. Manressette Conneaux,
though she is mother of Prado's illegiti
mate child, has reoeived score of
offers of marriage, but she has been kept
in seolnslon by her mother. Prado's wife
was to obtain a divoroe and move to
Paris. The mystery of Prado's birth and
his adventures bv.iore, the fateful night
when Marie Aquetant .'was murdered was
nevvr unravelled during his life, and cow
