Hauging Men ly Contract.
A. COMPANY OltUANIZKD TO EXEGUTK
SrniNOFiRU), 111., Juno 10. Capital
Is BCckloR now olmnnoU for Invcut
mont. Articles of Incorporation woro
filed with tho Seorctary of Stato, oroat
ing tho groat Amcrlonn Hxeoutlon
Company of tho United States. It la
organized under tho ponoral corpora,
tlon net of Illinois and nnnounces its
paid-up capital at $25,000. Its declar
ed purposo is "to oxoouto poisons who
are sontonced to death." Tho Incor
porators nro Stephen Liwaon, M. K
Clor and Jacob A. E. Iffort, all of
Chicago. Lawson and Cloar wero m
partnership in that city in tho retail
coal btiainws until a year ago and tho
firm bcoamo M. E. Cloar & Company.
Mr. Lawson la not in any business at
present, but thinks thoro is an honest
dollar to bo mado in tho hanging busi
ness. Tho Company intends to estab
lish agenoies in oaoh State capital, and
will conduct a general retail and whole
ssli execution business at fixed solio
dnlo rates. It will employ only tho
most expert hangmen, at a fixed yearly
salary, and will nnko contracts with
tho sheriffs of counties in States whoro
condomnoi murderers arc executed by
tho county officials. In States liko
Ohio (and, in tho future, Now York),
Whoro tho executions must occur only
at logally prescribed places, tho ar
rangements will bo mado with tho
wardens of tho penintentiarics
Tho men who filed articles of incor
poration with tho Stato Department
appear to bo acting in good faith,
though it is possiblo "tiny aro Boeking
notrioty rather than incomes from
stretchiug necks. I talked with tho
Chief of l'olico about tho matter after
receipt of your telegram, and ho deolar
od most emphatically that ho didn't bo
liove tho Cook County officials would
employ any such executioners. Each
sheriff, when his successor was selected
confided as a precious secret tho namo
and identity of tho professional hang
man. It would noyer do to employ
Tom, Dick or Harry to swing convict
ed criminals into eternity.
M. E. Cloar was found at his offico,
on tho river front. IIo Is a neat, bust
ling man of about medium size, and
spoko with perfect frankness on tho
subject. "Yes, it is true," ho said,
"that a few of us havo organized a
company to conduct private oxeoutions
throughout the country. Wo havo put
up our money, and are already in cor
respondence with many sheriffs and ex
pert hangmen throughout tho coun
try." DIVIDE NO DIVIDENDS ON DEATH.
"What do you expect your dividends
"I am glad you asked that question,"
was tho quick rejoiner, "because it
shows that our motivos aro completely
misunderstood. Wo do not intend to
earn any dividends. If wo can simply
maintain tho integrity of our capital
we shall bo satisfied, and shall gladly
charge off to the loss account the in
terest thereon. No, our motives are
purely philanthropic. 'To do good is
our religion.' You see, it's liko this :
Wo are all believers in capital punish
ment. Wo read our Bibles carefully
and believo that whoso sheddeth man's
blood by man shall his blood be shed
or words to that effeot. To be bann
ed, sir, by our Company's expert exe
cutioners will bo a luxury."
NO 11UNGUNO HERE.
"What gave you tho idea of this
"Tho recent bungling executions in
Missouri," was tho reply. "You must
have read of courso you did the
horrible accounts of the bungling
strangulations of the Bald-Knobbcrs.
That was shocking enough to suggest
some practical reform, don't you think
so? borne of the members of tho Com

Tho Fishing Soiaon.
Tho fishing sosnon is now fairly
oponod. It is lawful during Juno to
catoh with rod , hook and lino any of
tho fresh water fish usually found in
Ponsylvania waters, expecting only
rock bass and wall eyed plko in tho
Delawaro river, which aro proleotcd by
an act of tho hto Legislature for
of two years. Tho reason for this
oxcciition is that the Delawaro has
just ueeu stocked with thoso fish, which
aro nativo to its waters, and tho Fish
Commission dotiros that they shall bo
unmolcstd until they havo attained a
reasonable siz '. Tho rock bass men
tioncd in this act Is not tho striped
baas or lock lldi, but a variety taken
from thu groat lakes and more nearly
resembling tho black bass in sizo and
It is scarcely necessary at thlstimo to
urgo tho through enforcement of all
laws for tho protection of gamo fiah in
t'io fresh waters of tht- Stato. For tho
lack of well enforced fishing laws tho
lakes and streams of tho Commonwealth,
which odoo swarmed with tho bcH of
fish havo bocn nearly depopulated. Sinco
tho creation ofthe Stato 1 ish Commis
sion and tho enactment of existing laws
tho wholcsalo destruction of tho fish has
been arrested and sonic progress made
in restocking waters. If the
laws aro faithfully cuforcod there will
bo fishing for all who lovo tho sport in
tho near future, and for this reason it
should becomo everybody's business to
nid Fish Commissioners and Fish Ward
ens in protecting tho fish from all illegal
methods of destruction.
In connection with this subject it may
not bo amiss to suggest to tho Fish com
mission tho propriety of paying special
attention to tho protection and propa
gation of the native fresh water varie
ties of the State. It is all well enough
to transplant tho differnt varieties of
tho gamo bass to afford increased sport
to tho professional anglers and to cul
tivato carp for private fish ponds.
But the native fish, such .as the wall-eye
pike, striped bass, pickorol, yellow
peroh and oven the sunfish and catfish,
some of which are described in anther
oolumn that havo afforded sport and
healthful food to tho inhabitants of tho
Stato for two centuries, aro all worthy
of protection and propagation. They
are the fish of the common
people, thoso who can-not afford expen
sive journeys tho seashoro or great lakes
o do their fishing. Every stream, lake
reservoir and mill-pond in tho State
should be full of theso fish, so that
when tho farmer and tho f armor's boy
and tho hired man want a littlo rest from
their arduous labors with Borao sport
thrown in thoy can find it near home.

healthful variation in their ordinary

no spirit of hostility to the prtectiou
and propagation of the fish which are
