tereatlng Testimony In the Reference
llerore Iteferee Ilaker.
New York, July la Referee Baker, ap
pointed by tho court to examine into the
merits or demerits of the new mode of capital
punishment by electricity, resumed his inves
tigation, and listened to some interesting
righting for a Life.
Bourke Cockrau stated, before the refer
ence began, that he wished It to be distinctly
understood that he was fighting hard aye,
very hard to save the condemned murderer,
Kemmler, from an awful fate, which would
surely bo tho case were he to bo put to death
by oloctrlclty, even though It bo according
Electrocution Strongly Denounced.
Commissioner Gibbons, when called upon
to testify, was strong In his denunciation of
the use of electricity for capital punishment
"I hnvo not tho slightest hesitancy in saying
that this means of killing a man is most bar
barous," he remarked, "and I trust that it
nerver will be enforced."
Electrician John W. Noble was the next to
teU what he know of the evil effects of elec
tricity, and ho cited for example the experi
ments conducted by n former witness, Harold
P. Brown, on dogs, at Edison's works. The
witness went on to describe the fearful suf
ferings of the canines, which kicked and
squirmed like eels out of water when tho
electricity was appllod to their bodies. In
faot Mr. Brown declared the dogs wore not
killed outright, but suffered a lingering (loath.
Kipert McAddle'a Testimony.
"Now, Mr. McAddle, tell the reforee what
you know about the power of electricity and
how it sometimes acts," said Bourke Cockran,
as the witness took his seat
Mr. McAddle describes himself as an ex
port on "atmospherical electricity." For
seven years, ho stated, he had mado a thor
ough study of tho matter. He described Uio
effect of electricity on a human being as a
"current charge." The first effect produced
was unconsciousness, the second a paralysis
of th nerves and muscleB, and tho third a
(Uspension of respiration aud circulation.
He doubted if tho machine, proposed to be
used by tho state would kill a man, ns the
structure of human beings differed so radi
cally. Two points in fact were involved, ho said.
First, thot of the resistance of tho man, and
second that of tho course of the current
The witness believed that one half of a man
might be paralyzed and the other half retain
all Its naturnl functions. Then, again, science
had not as yet demonstrated the fact that a
current can, with any certainty, lie driven
through the vital part of a man's anatomy.
Continuing, Mr. McAddio said that assum
ing the condemned criminal was not killed
outright the effect of the shock would be a
slow carbonizing of his body.
The ICrTect Upon Human llelngs.
Tho witness then described a case of light
ning striking a woman, throwing her some
three feet, whero sho was loft unconscious,
with no pulso and no perceptible action of
the heart She turned purplo in the face,
but after a lapse of some hours was resusci
tated and finally recovered. When tho wit
ness was oskod if the electrodes In the death
dealing machine would have a tendency to
burn the skin ho replied that it was a hard
matter to determine. The wet sponges ap
plied to the electrodes could bo well damp
ened with wnter, but tho witness said he
wouldn't be surprised if the electricity burned
up tho sponges.
When askod by Mr. Cockran If tho wltnoss
had ever kuown of cases of people being
struck by lightning and thought to be dead,
he said that bo had. "No instrument that I
. know of is certain to kill," said tho witness.
"1 know that people are killed by electricity,
but how, I have not been able to ascertain."
The Doff Dash's Kxperlence.
Charles Topper, a restaurant keeper, of
No. 220 Eighth avenue, took the stand after
recess. He told how bis dog Dash hail
stepped upon a "live" wire in the street on
July 2, aud remained unconscious for ten
hours, and thought to bo dead. Mr, Topper
had his dog with him to prove his assertions,
and when tho animal was examined ho was
found to have sustained several scars from
contact with the electrical current
