SALEM, Or., Nov. 15. A report
has been gaining circulation here
that James A. Finch, hanged at the
Oregon Penitentiary Friday for the
murder of Ralph Fisher, died from
"physic, shock" between the time the
trap was sprung and the instant
when his body jerked taut the hang
man's noose. Dr. J. N. Smith, who
gave the official announcement of
Finch's death, says Finch did not die
form physic causes, but front a brok
en spinal cord.
"Usually in death by hanging,"
Dr. Smith said, "the check ligament,
which supports a process in the neck,
is broken, and the process, thus un
supported, presses upon the spina!
cord, causing death; but tn the case
of Fiueh tins usual manner of-death
did not hold. Finch met Instan
taneous death when the rone jerked
taut, the spinal eord itself having
been broken, and not the ligament.
"Death W hanging does not result
from strangulation or suffocation, as
some say, either," continued the doc
tor, "but is a direct result of the
breaking of the ligament which sup
ports the process already mentioned"
No postmortem examination, as re
quested by Finch in his speech on the
gallows, was held in this city.
