AWAITS HIS DEATH
Carlyle Harris Will Die by Electricity
HOW HE PASSED HIS LAST DAY
After His Separated Parents Were Bade
Goodbye He Devoted His Time to
a Review of His Case.
Sing Sing, N. Y., May 7. Carlyle
Harris has said farewell to his parents
and friends and .all dear to him on earth,
and now awaits the messenger of death.
The last act in the strange drama of his
ife approches, and while he shows a
nervous apprehension and a full appre
ciation of the terrible thing that is to
come to him oie morrow, no signs of
breaking dowiikiiKe. He adheres to
his oft-repeated declaration of innocence,
and he passed the best part of his last
day on earth not in communication with
his spiritual advisers preparing for the
great hereafter, but with pen and ink
and paper, reviewing the past and seek
ing to place himself right with the
world he leaves. He was a trine more
nervous than usual today, the situation
having its effect upon him, and the man
who allowed no sign of emotion to
escape him during the scenes of the
past months is at least showing that he

he was a little more nervous than usual,
he could discover no signs of a breaking

She took her last farewell of her boy
vesterdav afternoon. The scene was
one of the saddest which has ever been
witnessed within the grim walls, where
all is sadness. The younger brother,
Allan, also said good-bye yesterday.
This afternoon Charles D. Harris, the
father, accompanied by young Allan,
went to the prison, and father and son
met for the first time in years. Mr.
and Mrs. Harris have lived apart for
some time. Afterward the father took
the train back to his home in Syracuse,
leaving Mrs. Harris and Allan to wait
here until all is over and they can carry-
away all that is mortal of their beloved.
The last farewell to relatives having
been said, Carlyle Harris devoted his
time to writing a review of the chief
events of his life and of what has been
done by the courts, judges and governor
in his case. All preparations ha.ve been
made for tomorrow. The electrocution
will take place about noon. State Elec
trician Davis has tested the dynamo and
apparatus and found everything in
order. The apparatus is the same which
was used in the last two electrocutions

self with fatal effect. His last words,
pronounced after he. shot her and before
he took his own life, were: "I killed
her because I loved her, and I am as
well off dead myself."
A deafening leport followed and Hos
kins fell forward on his face. Four
members of the Salvation army saw the
deed, but were powerless to prevent it.
The weapon was a 44-caliber revolver
loaded with Winchester rifle cartridges.
The first shot penetrated the woman's
heart, entering below her left arm as
she stood with her left side turned to
The suicidal bullet did its work with
awful certainty. The muzzle cf the
weapon touched the right temple as it
was fired, and the leaden ball made its
exit just above the left ear. The con
cussion split the skull as if with an axe.
Blood and brains were scattered over a
space of 10 feet square, and as the man
lay in his own blood, the greater part of
his mangled brain oozed out on to the
When Hoskins entered the barracks
he was an avowed would-be murderer
and suicide, for he had spent the fore
noon writing letters expressive of his
intentions. He tteld the revolver con
cealed under his coattails as he went up
the steps. Lieutenant Augusta Wech
ter, Berna Eirstlans and J. C. Finstad
were standing in the -front of the au
dience room. Captain Bennett had en
tered the room at the right of the
platform to get several copies of the
War Cry. Hoskins walked straight for
the platform. Finstad attempted to
detain him, but he said, fiercely:
"Don't lay a hand on me, or you'll drop
Captain Bennett heard the words and
opened the door, standing in the en
trance with a bundle of War Crys in
" You wronged me and you know it,"
Hoskins shouted at her.
As he spoke, he fired. The ball
missed. He shot again. The War Crys
fluttered loosely to the floor, and Cap
tain Bennett fell. When Hoskins fell
forward his life-blood dyed the papers,
and formed a thick, red pool, extending
on each side of the body.
The women did not even gasp. Her I
evelids moved slightly, and' she
breathed her last.
Attracted by the eOund of the shots,
a mortnd, curious crowd eoneciea at
the foot of the stairway, and before. a
policeman arrived to keep them back,
many persons gathered about the
bodies. The sickening sight seemed to
have a strange fascination for many of
them. Coroner Newman had difficulty
forcing his way to the place where the

Spokane, May 7. The funeral ser
vices were conducted at the Methodist
Episcopal church this afternoon under
the auspices of the Salvation Army.
The streets were thronged during the
progress of the procession from the bar
racks to the church. Several local min
isters took part in the services, which
were very impressive. Many allusions
were made to Captain Bennett's devo
.tion to her work, and sobs were heard
all over the house. The crush in the
church was awful, and in the midst of a
liynm the edifice began to settle and the
walls to crack. Hundreds ru9hed out
into the street, and there was almost a
panic. The church is built on an inse

THE ARMY BILL LOST
Offer to Reduce the Peace EffectiTe Does
Not Gain a Vote.
REICHSTAG AT ONCE DISSOLVED
Socialist Democrats Ready for a Cam
paign, and Expect to Increase
Beiilix, May 6. The army bill was
rejected today in the reichstag by a vote
of 210 against the bill to 162 in favor of
it. The rescript signed by the kaiser
dissolving the reichstag was immediately
promulgated, and the reichstag is now
dissolved. The result of the vgto on the
army bill caused no surprise to the gov
ernment. Caprivi attempted yesterday
evening to rally the wavering members
to a support of the measure by offering
to reduce the peace effective even below
the number proposed in the amendment
offered by Von Huene. The offer, how
ever, did not gain a single vote. The
last attempts at compromise having
failed, Caprivi refusing to sanction the
proposition to make two years' active
service permanent, the kaiser became
impatient of further delay, and proposed
for a decision by the reichstag today.
Hence a vote was taken at once, instead
of being' postponed until Monday. The
failure of the army bill makes it neces
sary for the kaiser to defer for the pres
ent his projected reforms of the higher
military commands and of the posts in
the war office. Chancellor Caprivi has
gone to Potsdam to offer his resignation
to the kaiser.
Hurriedly convened meetings are
being held in Berlin and other populous
centers tonight. The promptness with
which the reichstag was dissolved im
mediately after the defeat of the gov
ernment was announced has taken
everybody by surprise. Social demo
cratic leaders are alone ready for an elec
toral campaign. Bebel, Singer and
Liebnecht will leave Berlin tomorrow
and begin ut once to stump the country
in behalf of the socialist candidates. In
every district in which the socialists -have
a fighting chance candidates will
be nominated, and the party expects
with reason to have an increased repre
sentation in the next reichstag. The
emperor will not allow the dissolution
of the reichstag to interfere with the pro-'
gramme of his comiug. tour.
The promptness and certainty of its
cures have made Chamberlain's Cough

ally for coughs, colds, croup and whoop
