CARLYLE HARRIS DEAD
Murderer of Helen Potts Electrocuted at
HIS LIPS SEALED TO THE LAST
Went to His Doom Without Making a
Confession A Statement for
Sing Sing, N. Y., May 8. Carlyle W.
Harris, the young medical student,
whose trial and conviction in New York
city for poisoning Helen Potts, to whom
he had been secretly married, has at
tracted so much attention, was electro
cuted In prison here today.
Harris had been told when the execu
tion would take place. He retired, early
last night showing more evidences of
excitement than usual, his heretofore
strong nerves giving evidence of. strain
in the unusual quantity of cigarettes he
smoked. He slept little during the
night, rose early this morning and
looked over a manuscript he had pre
pared to be given to the press after his
death. He seemed cooler this morning,
and ate a light breakfast at 8 o'clock.
At 9 o'clock the medical witnesses began
to arrive, and half an hour later the
fires were started under the boilers
which operate the engine which runs
the dynamo furnishing the deadly agent
of execution. His mother and brother
had already taken a final leave of him,
but occupied a room in a neighboring
hotel, from the window of which the
black flag could be seen when hoisted as
a signal that his spirit had taken flight.
The death warrant was read at 8:30.
The reading had no visible effect on the
condemned man. Half an hour later
the prison chaplain spent an hour with
him, then one of the medical examiners
visited him and found him showing
some signs of nervousness, but nothing
more. Harris did not ask for morphine
or any stimulant, but wanted a couple
of oranges, which were given him. He
was shaved and bad his hair cut at
10 :30, and put on a new suit of clothes.
At 12:15 the witnesses were conducted
to the execution chamber and the death
flag placed in position to hoist. The
witnesses numbered 27, consisting of
seven physicians, ten newspaper men
and ten state officials and friends of the
warden, arrived in the execution cham
ber. The witnesses took seats in a semi
circle around the death chair, and every
thing being in readiness two keepers
brought Harris into the chamber, ac
companied by the chaplain. He looked
pale as he entered the room, paused an
instant on the threshold and calmly
surveyed the assembled witnesses. One
of the keepers indicated the chair to
him, and without even a glance of curi
osity at the death-dealing machine he
stepped forward and took a seat.
PROTESTED HIS INNOCENCE.
As he did so he requested permission
to speak. This was accorded him. He
said, speaking as if every word cost him
a great effort :
"I have no further reservation to
make. I desire to say I am absolutely
innocent." Then he settled back in his
chair and the electrodes were quickly
The signal was given, the lever clicked
sharply, the form of the condemned man
stiffened till the straps creaked, while
1760 volts passed through his frame. At
the end of fwo seconds the current was
reduced to 150 volts, which was con
tinued 54 seconds longer, when Harris
was pronounced dead. As the current
.'was fully shut off the body dropped back
limp. An examination showed no signs
of life, and it was evident that death
was instantaneoue. The execution was
most successful. His relatives will take
the body away this afternoon.
THE WORLD'S FAIR.
Tokonto, Ont., May 8. Sir James
Long, proprietor of the Sheffield (Eng
land) Telegraph, who visited the world's
fair last week with a party of British
journalists, has given his impressions
of and the prospects of the fair. He
said he considered the Chicago show the
greatest ever held, the most extensive,
the most costly, and architecturally the
moBt imposing. It was a question of
money and never before had so much
money been contributed for such a pur
pose. The buildings were much ahead
of those at Paris, but be was disap
pointed at the unready state of the ex
hibition. Strangely enough, the most
backward exhibits were those which the
Americans themselves were making
In his district in Sheffield, all but two
manufacturers had practically boycotted
the Chicago fair on account of the Mc-
Kinley act preventing them from selling
goods in the United States. He ap
proved this action at the time they de
cided it, but he now thought it was a
mistake. Many British merchants
were losing the opportunity of a life-time
for advertising. If it had not been for
the McKinley act, England's exhibit
at Chicago would have been the best
that country had ever made. He did
not think the exhibition of paintings
equal to that made at Vienna. He did
not think it would be a financial success.
TWO BATTLES FOVOHT.
Panama, May 8. With Santiago Mor
ales at their head, the revolutionists of
Nicaragua have established a provisional
government over that republic, and are
preparing to strike a crushing blow to
President Sacass. This important news
is contained in a special cable which has
just been received from San Juan del
Sur, on the Nicaraguan coast. Head
quarters of the provisional government
have been established at Granada, the
city which first fell into the hands of the
revolutionists. Santiago Morales is the
provisional president, ex-President Za
vola minister of war, and Eduardo Mon
tiel general-in-chief of the revolutionary
army. Around Granada have been con
centrated the leading divisions of the
revolutionary army, and from that point
of course all operations are conducted.
In addition to Granada and Masaya,
which they captured on April 29th, the
revolutionists have taken Rivas, Jinc
tepe and Chantales.
St. Paul, May 8. The nomination of
William Lochren to the important post
of commissioner of pensions, is received
with greatest satis
faction in the north
west, where he is
one of the most pop
ular men. He is
judge of the circuit
court of Minnesota,
having been appoint
ed once by a repub
lican governor. He
retained the position
M.lCMRE.M for three terms.
Judge Lochren was born in Vermont in
1836. In 1857 he went to Minnesota
and practiced law. He enlisted in the
first Minnesota regiment and served
with distinction throughout the war.
He went into the famous charge at
Gettysburg, which checked Pickett's on-
laught, as a lieutenant, and came out
in command of his regiment, every offi
cer above his grade having been killed
Henderson Sentenced for Life.
Oregon City, May 8. This afternoon
the case of the State vs. William Hender
son was called in the circuit court on a
rehearing ordered by the supreme court
in reversing the decision of the lower
court, and the prisoner was given an op
portunity to enter another plea, which
opportunity he took to plead guilty to
murder in the second degree. Hon.
Henry E. McGinn appeared for the
prisoner and C. H. Dye for the state,
and in behalf of the prosecuting at
torney his deputy accepted the plea
rather than put the county to the ex
pense of a new trial. Time was waived
and Judge Mc Bride at once sentenced
Henderson to be confined in the peni
tentiary for life.
During the prevalence of the grippe
the past seasons it was a noticeable fact
that those who -depended upon Dr.
King's Hew Discovery, not only had a
speedy recovery, but escaped all of the
troublesome after effects of the malady.
This remedv seems to have a peculiar
power in effecting rapid cures not only
in cases of la grippe, but in all diseases
of throat, chest and lungs, and has cured
cases of asthma and hay fever of long
standibg. Try it and be convinced. It
won't disappoint. Free trial bottles at
