M. E. church reiul a few verse from
tho New Testument and offered a fer-
vent prayer for tho doomed man.
The black cap was adjusted and at
10:110 tho trap was sprung. Tho vic-
tim's neck was broken and in six min-

ployed Morgun to go with him to Paw-

dent that ho had been shot after ho got
into tho hole on this evidence tho the
ory was advanced that t'rumpton had
induced his companion to go down
into the hole bv representing that there
was some whisky concealed there and
th 0 shot him.
As soon as tho body of Morgan woe
discovered the friends of the (lead man

was lodged in jail hero tile latter part
of December lt(. At the trial the
prosecution traced Crumpton and his
victim all the way along the road to the
killing and from that point m a round'
about w ay back to the place of shirting.
The only' defense brought out was the
bare statement of tho defendant with
no ev'denco in support of It. He
was convicted on June .( IH:iO and sen-
tenced to bo hanged August 2 of the
same year but he tik hu apcal to the
supreme court of"lhe United States.
After considerable delay tho judgment
was aftiirmed the mandaio being Hied

sought executive clemency hut failed
to accomplish anything.
After this the young man began te
make preparations for his doom and
has conducted himself in such a man
ner as to gain the sympathy of all con
nected with the jail. Ho has at all
times modestly assorted his innocence.
He says ho is the victim of a peculiar
chain of circumstances w hich he had
no means of overcoming. After re
ceiving his last sentence he prepared a
statement which was published in the
pam-rs here giving an account of him

murder was committed.

New York Juno 110. A corrcs)otid-
ent at Santiago de Chill writing May
'lutb Bays: in Chili to day scores of
men were shot. In this city the shoot-
ing of tho officers and sailors of tho
toi-elo launch (Joadlo was the se-
ial feature of the wholesale execution.
Tho men wero placed in one of the
largo rooms of tho juil last night and
thosfl who desired to confess did so. At
tno side on a table wus a silver cruci-
fix between two candles. The heart-
broken sobs of tho prisoners inter-
mingled with the low tones of tho
priest who on bended knees exhorted
tho condemned men. Even tho stern
soldiers of Halmaceda who were on
guard could not repress tears. All
night the solemn ceremoney continued.
It was scarcely day break when tho
shrill notes of a angle were heard.
Soon six companies of infantry were on
line in the prison yard. An ofticer
quickly ascended tho tes loading' to
the capilla as the room is called and
handed tho officer on guard a document.
It was the seutenco and order of execu-
tion which was read and then the
funeral procession was formed As tho
prisoners stepped out of tho room each
was put Ix-tween two grim soldiers.
When all had bevn thus placed tho pro-
cession moved out of the prison and
was met by two companies of mounted
men formed in two long lines between
which tho men proceeded on foot to
the p'ace of execution. There was not
a soul in the streets.
On arriving at tho pla.a tho troops
formed in a hollow square and a sec-
tion of sharp shooters took po-'lliona
opposite tho condemned men. Not a
muscle of their faces moved. They did
not seem to realize that these men
whom they were tho next minute to
send to their graves wero their breth-
ren. After the prisoners had kissed
the crucifix their hands wero tied be-
hind them and then tho command
"I'repare aim fire!'' rang out. A vol-
ley little puffs of smoke and the execu-
tion was ao-omplished. About a dozen
men had been sent into eternity because
they espoused the cause of liberty as
thev understood it.
The list of Halmaceda's cruelties Is
terrible to contemplate. Men and
women are butchered for daring to ex-
press an opinion and thrfre seems to be
no limit to the brute's devilishness.

There Is not in all cases a perfect un

of each class by all the others but
when such understanding exists there

While present conditions may not

It is in tho shops and mines and all
Indoor occupations that shorter hours
should first lie established. There are
many reasons w hy this is true. In the
various trades nnil mechanical pursuits

tiplied the possibilities of production
and to a corresponding extent curtailed
the demand for men the hours of labor
