SiNO Sino, N. Y., Deo. 8. The scenes
at the execution by electricity ot Murtln
D. I.oppy, the Now York wlfamurilofer,
In Sing Slug prison yesterday were a
repetition ot those which occurred at
tho execution of the lour murderers in
the same place In July last. The con
demned met his fate bravely. Three
shocks wero administered, and Loppy
was pronounced dead lu six minute af
ter he was placed lu tho chair. Voltage
used In this Instance was from 1,700 to
1,750 ns against 1,500 used In July.
The total period of contact was from 49
1-a to OU 1-3 seconds, the dlllereuue uo
lag caused by variation ot the battery.
The Urst shock was admlstered at one
minute to 12 aud at 12:05 the warden
ordered one of the uuards ti run up the
flair pronouncing to tho outside world
ttnit the traglo event had been accom
plished.
The witnesses were Dr. uarios v. Mc
Donald, Statu Commissioner ot Lunacy;
Prof. Louis A. Laudy, of Columbia Col
lege; Dr. Samuel li. Ward, of Albany;
Hi A. lirown, state rrlson i-urcuasiug
Agout; Hev, Sidney G. Law, Chaplain
of the Tombs', l!ev. Silas W. Eduertou,
Chaplain of Sing sing 1'rison; Deputy
Coroner W. P. Jenkins, of Now York;
Dr. Ira T. Vau Uoissen. of Uroeuport,
L. I.! Dr. Brill, ot Brooklyn; E. K Davis,
ot New York; Dr. Evans, of Schuyler;
Dr. W. F. Douitlass. of lliddiotowu;
Dr. J. E. Hansom, of Dannemora
Prison; Dr. Holliston, of Bellevuo llos
tiltal, New York; Dr. Hiram B.trlow, of
Sing Sing; M. Q. Ellison, Dr. Kingston,
of Newbura. and Dr. Ely. of Newburg,
A little after 10 o'clock Hev. Mr. Law
and Hev. Mr. Edcerton went to Ljpny's
celt and spent the hour and a half be
tween tint time and tlie execution in
preparing him for the ordeal they knew
no was to meet.
Meanwhile the warden hal assembled
the witnesses In the prison parlor and at
15 minutes of 12 they marched In double
file, headed by the warden, through the
passageway to the death chamber.
Headkeeper McNaughton and two
deputies then entered Loppy's cell and
conducted mm to tne ueatn cnumu;r.
He placed himself In the chair volun
tarily. The straps about the legs, chest,
abdomen and the arms were quietly ad'
justed; the cup containing the elec
trodes for the temples was lowered and
maced In position, the death mast
drawn over the face, and the guards
stopped back and left him alone.
Dr. McDonald gave the signals. Elec
trician Davis closed the switch and
Loppy had paid the penalty ot his
crime.
The autopsy by Deputy Coroner Jonk
ins showed that, ns in all former Kill
ings by electricity, the blcod was in a
fluid state all through tho body. Both
vetricles ot the heart wero filled with
blood, and tho color was slightly darker
than in normal ca-ies. run spleen was
pulpy and colored In spots and slightly
enlarged. TUe pupa ot tne eye
noticeably contracted.
Tho other was discolored. The skin
along the back ot the body was also
discolored, slightly purple, and in spots
were found a number of blisters. The
legs were contracted and the muscles
rigid. Marked evidences of burning
were fouud 011 the calf of the legs, and
over tho temples the flesh was seared
nearly to the bone. Loppy was burned
as badly as was the first under the new
method of killing.
Four hours later four convicts re
moved the body ot Loppy from ths au
topsy table and placed it In a rough
wooden box. halt filled with qulokllme.
Then, .they filled "lb with the same ma
terial, nailed on the ton aud hauled It
to the lonely trench on the hillside,
where they buried it. No friends or
,relatlves Jlave ever JnqulfQ for Loppy
since uia iuuaruDtimuu.
Soon after midnight yesterday the
scenes around the ojd'prlson assumed an
aDnear'ance similar to those during the
execution of Slocum, Sinller and the
others. A number of newspaper men
had taken possession of the hill opposite
the prison, .and Kept, themselves Dusy
trying to Interrupt and pump Informa
tion from those who ,entered or came
out ot the jail. The death line was
closelv natrolled and the guards, carry
ing guns loaded with corks, had orders
tg "pop any one wno persisted iu cross
ma the line wltnout. permission.
When day light began to show the
outlines of the prison walla to the wait
ing press .representatives, rain was
nourlns steadily and the surroundings
were dismal enough to form a suitable
trame for the approaching death scene.
At 7 o'clock the electrla lights In the
nrlson aud In the villa also were turned
off and the engineer ot the special engine
went home, so that the indications were ) I
that nothing was to be dona during -the
early morning Hours.
Chlot Keener Counaughton oama out-
Ida the dead line at about 8 o'clock
and said the prisoner had passed a .very
comfortable nlgbt, resting quietly and
that he ate his breakfast with quite a
cood ileal of relish.
The execution room is in a temporary
frame structure outir, on tne soutu biuo
of the main blinding of the prison,
There are two rooms 111 the little build
ing one the execution room and the
other the room where .the autopsy is
held. The execution room is in the
eastern halt ot the building. Against
the partition which divides the building
is built a closet lor tne executioner, ua
enters It from the autonwy room.
Lonnv had beeu prepared for death for
several weeks. He has never ceased to
protest his innocence of the crime with
which he js charged, but he has had uo
bone of escHDinc: the death penalty. He
came to the prison a physical wreck-
deaf, blind in one eye and Willi - fits
whole svstom shattered by drink.
The quiet prison life and the coarse
healthy prison fare restored some ot his
Vitality and cleared his besotted mind.
Of lata he found some consolation in re

several hours in the condenmed man's

In the petition for a now trial
in the caso ot Isaao B. Saw to I lo, under
sentence ot death tor murdering his
brother Hiram, at llochostor, N. II., was
held before tho full bench ot the Su
premo Court lu tho Sennto chamber yes
terday. The hall and corridors leading
to It were thronged. Sawtelle, in
cuargeot Warden Colbathand manacled
to prison officials, came into court and
told the following story of the murder:
"I met my brother Hiram on Febru
ary 6, 1800, nt Iiochester when he got
off tho train. I told him his daughter
Marlon was sick. I told lilm she was
out ot towu. I got a team at Smart's
stable, and went from there to Wallace's
hardware store where I got a spade,
pick and shovol, and nsked if they
would take back the tools If they were
not used. They said they would. I did
up tho tools and put thorn in the back
of tho wagou.
'I drove past Rankin's in Mnlno.
When I turned into the Marsh roal he
wanted to know where I was taking
hltn. Directly I turned into the little
path near the woodman's shanty in tho
woods I saw ho wanted to got out, and
ho did. Thou he got In again. I said,
'I have got some papers hero that 1
want you to sign.' I took tho papers
from my pocket aud said: 'You may
sign those or take that,' pulling out a
revolver aud pointing It at htm.
"He held my hand In which the re
volver was until after I promised not
to hurt htm. He then began to walk
towurd the shanty, and after going
some 20 foot broke into a run. I started
after hi in and called several times,
'Hiram! Hiraml stop, or I will lira I As
he kept on running I tired. Ho ran a
little way and fell. I then ran up and
shook him. hut he said nothing. I then
put the pistol to my head to kilt myself
and said: 'Qood-by, Hiram, I'm going
to shoot,' Immediately I said: 'My

must live for her 1'
"I loweiol the pistol, nnd as
thought Hirum was moving Hired three
more shots Into his body to put him out
ot pain. I then took hold ot the boots
and dragged the body about 100 yards
and began digging a grave. I hurrlod
up and took oil his clothing. The gravo

and arms. I found 1 had not burled
tho head, and I took It and put it in tho
bag with his shirt around it, put tha
bag in the team, and liiially uroro into
tho woods and buriod tho hoad under
some birch trees, I dug a hole, took tho
bead out ot the bag. aud. as 1 buried It,
said, 'good-by, Hiram.' I throw the
axe, lamp and shovel into the rlrer ns I
crossed the rlvor from Maine back to
Bochoster, took Hiram's clothing to my
boarding house and wont to bod.
Dr. Blood gavo me a plan of tho

It would be just tho way to go up to

The Agreement With Germany.
Washington, Doc. 8. State Depart-
ment oQlcials say that the cable dis
patch from Paris asserting that a treaty
of commerce has been concluded be
tween Germany and the United States,
by which the Intter country exempts
German beet sugar from duty and uor-
many gives the United States the favor
ed nation the benefit In regard to im
portations from the United States into
that country, is substantially true, and
that iM-ance (which also produces a con
sideraule quantity ot beet sugar), will
soon follow in the same lines. It Is
technically Incorrect to say that '
ii. , , , i - i , rm..
treaty nns usou cuuciuueu. mat
wouldjrequire concurrence, by the Senate.
What has oeen accompiisuoa is an agree
