Jot Dlp, John Evans and Htnrj Judgt Pay tht Penalty of their Crlmt at Winchester. The death watch had been set, the scaffold built and all arrange ments completed for the hanging at Winchester. It was general ly understood that the hanging was to be private. Sheriff Stew art had been warned that unless he tore down the enclosure and let all who wished see the hang ing, the fence would be torn down by the crown. Probably for this reason and to avoid trouble, it was decided to have the hanging early before the crowd would assemble. Only about eighty people witnessed the execution. Promptly at a quarter of six the prisoners were led to the scaffold. Joe Delp had nothing to say except that he was ready to be hung. John Evans made a little talk also, stating that he was ready to die. Henry Judge said that if he was guilty he ought to Ik? hung, that he hated to die on such a record and leave his wife and children. The trap was sprung prompt ly at ("o'clock. Help's neck was broken by the fall. Evans and Judge strangled to death. The crime for which Judge, Evans and Delp suffered death was the murder in August, 1001$, of Simon Biicher and wife at their home several miles from Winchester. Delp, according to his own confession, corroborated by Evans, shot Biicher after he md induced him to go into fi field near his house. He shot Biicher in the back with a double barreled shotgun, and Evans who was seated on the porch talking to Mrs. Biicher, shot her with a pistol. She ran into the house, and two more shots were fired by the murderer. The house was then set on fire and the body of Mrs. Biicher was cremated. The two men thought that the wound received by Biicher had resulted in immediate death, and they left the scene of the awful crime. Biicher did not die until the next evening, however. To those who found him in the field next morn ing he related the story, and said that the gun used belonged to Judge. The two men were ar rested, and they confessed say ing that Judge had promised to give tnem ten dollars n tney would get Biicher and his wife out of the way.

He left a note, saying, "I die because I am unfaithful to my trust." He attributed all of his trouble to drink. What a sad easel What - pity that such a man as Billy :Henderson, charitable to a fault ; a man who would divide his last?: Cent with a friend, and above all, a young lawyer of bright mind hid future, should thus be forced through his own conscience to take his life! All of this because liquor, in his opinion, had "robbed him of mind and self-respect.
