The affair was not a success In any sense, of the word. The crowd waa noisy and boisterous, and tbe adjustment ef the death, apparatus waa so badly made 'that the electric current bad to be turned en for the' third time before the murderer wss declared dead.. .. , v - The acenes prior to the execution were disgraceful. Several ' hundred people thronged the offices and walked over the Iswn of tbe State Prison. All wanted to see the execution, and they besieged the Wardrf wHh their requests for - CAB.De or ADMUSIOK. , ' Long before the appointed moment for the execution the guardroom waa crowded with eater men. all of them noisy and more than one of them Intoxicated.' Agatn and again did big John tngenberger. Captain of the night watch, clear tha cuardroom, or attempt attempt to clear It. Me finally bad to use gentle force to get the mob away from the big Iron door. The word waa gtven out that a law student at Dayton, felt In a moment of drunken passion aa (hough be could clean out tha whole crowd. Ha attempted In the disgraceful melee to strike as well- well- known Columbus man. and for thla offense was summarily ejected from tbe room by Detective John T. Norrla.
