MOSE8, PnblUnar, is i i iu« THE Detroit Tribune says that the pension department geeks to defend its notion in the justice LOD£ case by "making a tremotlQou's ado over ihe technicalities of the tease." It says the department "claims to have discovered some irregularities in the H tiling of pa pern or th$<m>n filing of them and- this n- xij/u .if it-s onnti'nt'utti " In : * .u ttnue admitted, by fanner himself, the "sum" of the department's contention would appear to be pretty formidable, What are pention laws and regulations for if ihoy are not be observed? And if flagrant "im-gularitieb" are to be per milled in Justice Long's case,, why should they not be permitted in all casest^ When the 'tribune sneers at the department's claim of gross "irregularities" in the allowance of Justice Long : of 17,000 in arrearages, it confesses- the indefensible character pi Tanner's ac tion. The moat ot the>.o;Jd veterans have to wait tnany long' months and eveu yeard, before a decision on their claims for arrearages is reached; and evfenthen it is often ad vet so to them; but in Justice Long's case the rules were opnven'Bifttly. suspended and his claim was. rushed through in a single day.

Hiram Banghatn met with a narrow escape one day last week, while cutting hay. He fell in the knives of the machine and would have lost one arm had i; not been for the.aid of a small pear tree, which stood in the way of the horses. He was very lucky to receive only a small cut. The funeral of David Sturgio took place Wednesday afternoon from the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Frank J. Smith. It was well attended. The services were conducted by Elder J. F. Long.

The Blan Drugged Until a Tfew Current Was 8ecure.d. AUBURN, N. Y., July 28.—A ghastly tragedy, the sequel of another One, was enacted in the priBonj.h^i'e yesterday, Murderer "William <S. Taylor, -wh^t cut the throat of a fellow convict, was placed in the electrocution chair to ex* piate with his own life the crime he had done. , "• • • • It was 20 minutes to' 1 o'clock when the warden invited the witnesses to follow him to the death chamber. State Electrician Davia was at the electric cabinet and his preliminary tests were entirely satisfactory, the dial indicating ft voltage of 1,820. The two priests, three keepers and the condemned man soon entered and Taylor was immediately placed in the 'chair and pinioned. His face wore a look of set determination. When all was ready the signal was given and the current was turned on. Taylor's powerful frame shot back and up in the chair until the straps creaked and simultaneously there was a crash. The strain, upon the footrest had brifcen it and the under pinning of the, chair gave way. The body sank to a reclining posture, with the -victim's feet resting" on the floor. The spectators were starred, but did not move. It was supposed the •victim was dead from' the effects of the shock., when a strange noise was heard. He had begun to gasp for breath and saliva was seen to exude from his mouth. "Turn on the current," was the command from the warden, and Electrician Davis tried to obey, but was dumbfounded to find no response to the turning of the lever. The dynamo had broken down. The labored breathing of the victim continued and his chest rose and fell convulsively. Davis has* tened outside to the dynamo to ascertain the trouble and found the armature had burned out. The victim, who was now gasping and groaning aloud, was unbound and was placed upon a cot and carried into the adjoining room. His pulse grew stronger and he endeavored several times to rise from the cot. Physicians said he was unconscious/ probably in the condition of a man stricken with apoplexy. He would recover, they thought, and the only way to carry out the sentence of the law was again to place him in the chair. A lineman quickly connected the prison apparatus with the electric light plant, .and in an hour all was ready for the %econd electrocution. Taylor continued to grow strong and was given an injection of morphine. A small dose of chloroform was also administered. He waa then carried bodily to the chair, which had been repaired, and was strapped into a sitting posture. The current was again turned on, the body straightened up and for half a minutel,240 volts coursed through Taylor's unconscious form and he was pronounced dead.. The first electrocution took place at 12:48 and the second at 1:55.' The paper which Taylor had prepared for publication was delivered to the warden just before the hour fixed for the execution. After expressing profound approbation for the efforts made in his defense by Counsellor Cashing, he speaks the regrets he feels as treating His attorney with contempt during the trial. He said: I |I had got the idea in my head that I being a negro and a convict and my victim being white the trial wouid be nothing but a farce. I was much mistaken in Mr. Cashing and hope he will pardon me for doubting his character. In conclusion he said: J shall not die a murderer, as there is no murder in my heart, and I have been brought to see the folly of my hatred of people. Feeling this way, I had rather die than live, and I shall not die as I thought I would at the time, of the crime and of my trial, but' instead of hating everybody I shall have pity and sympathy for all people, for I have learned that they all neea it aud are worthy of it. ~ „.
