AN ELECTRIC DEATH
Described by a Westinghonse Expert
as Extremely Painful.
OVER 1,050 VOLTS IS DANGEE.
Human Besistance Hard to Measure and
A MAN WHO SURViYED 2,500 TOLTS
New Yobk, July 12. Franklin L. Pope,
the veteran electrical expert, testified before
Referee Becker in the case of Kemmler. the
condemned murderer, yesterday, and said he
did not believe sufficient knowledge existed
as to the effects of electricity on human be
ings to determine what amount will kill
-without dangeroi torturing the victim. He
explained that he had had 30 years' expe
rience with electricity, had been an electrical
engineer for 18 years and was the second
President of the American Society of Elec
trical Engineers. At present he is employed
as an electrical expert by the Westinghonse
Electric Light Company. He had, he said,
at one time made some experiments with a
view to ascertaining the difference in sus
ceptibility of various persons to an electric
current, and found that some could stand
very little, while others took all that a med-

"Do you consider the "Wheatstone fcridge
a reliable instrument for measuring the elec
trical resistance of human bodies?" Mr.
"I do not think it capable of doing so
with any degree of accuracy," the witness
replied, "because of the construction of
human organism. The instrument is ac
curate in measuring metals and inorganic
substances, however. So far as I knotv
there is no means known by which the
actual electrical resistance ot the human
body can be determined definitely. Ifa
nan were sent to half a dozen electrical en
gineers to be measured, the results would
be widely different, and the same man's re
sistance varies greatly at different times."
BAXGEB IX DYNAMOS.
The witness said the 'Westinghonse dyna
mos were constructed to generate a 1,050
volt current, and to increase their pressure
beyond that point would be dangerous, as they
mie;ht fly to pieces. To generate 1,050 volts
800 evolutions per minute were necessary,
and to increase the voltaee would neces
sarily increase the number of evolutions
proportionately, and consequently to make
it "a dynamo capable of generating 3,000
volts, as recommended in .Harold
Brown's pamphlet, would be dangerous,
just as it would be dangerous to run the
steam pressure in a boiler above the in
The electro-motive force of a flash of light
ning, he said, was infinitely greater than
nny artificial electricity that could be gen
crated. By artificial means it is "not possi
ble to shatter a broomstick, while lightning
could shatter the largest tree or knock down
Trinity steeple." Where artificial electrical
shocks from high tension currents do not
prove fatal the skin is generally burned,and
sometimes the flesh also. A saturated
t ponce would not insure against burning,
as it was possible to produce an electric arc
under water even, and the water in the
sponge might in a few seconds be made to
boil and scald the culprit The result
might be to carbonize the entire body, but
in most cases only the surface of the skin,
or at the worst the flesh to the bone would
VEET MUCH: IGXOEAUCE TET.
Different people, witness said, receiving
thocks from dynamo currents under pre
cisely similar circumstances might fare
differently; one might escape uninjured and
another be instantly killed. There is abso
lutely nothing known as to the voltage
necessary to kill a human being except
"what was brought out in Mr. Brown's
experiments on animals, and very little is
known about the conditions under which
nny of the accidental victims of the current
were killed. It is known that lightning
strokes rarely kill more than one or two
people even in a crowd, but that large
numbers in a flock of sheep have been
killed by one stroke.
"Is lightning less fatal to human beings
than to animals?" Mr. Cockran asked.
"It would seem so," replied Mr. Pope.
"We can tell very little about the effect on
human beings by experimenting on animals.
Nearly everything depends upon the sub
"Do you know of any current," asked Mr.
Cockran, "that will absolutely cause death
in every instance?"
"I do not."
On cross-examination Deputy Attorney
General Poste and District Attorney Quim
bv brought out the well-known fact that the
Westinghouse Company objects to the use
of its machines for killing people, because
ot the attempt being made to make it appear
dangerous to have the company's current in
"Do you believe death could be produced
without pain bv an alternating current?"
Mr. Quimby asked.
"I think it is possible, but by no means
certain. I never heard ot more than two or
three persons in all who were accidentally
killed by alternating currents."
"Po you believe electrical deaths are pain
ful?" "I believe that as a rule deaths caused by
electric currents are extremely painful."
The witness said tne highest voltage in
nny.circuit in New York is- from 2,000 to 3,
000 continuous current and 1,050 alternating
SUBVIVED 2,500-VOLT SnOCE.
Daniel J. McFall furnishes the following
details of his sensations from an electric
shock on the Sutro Tunnel level of the Chol
In May, 18S5, 1 was in the employ of the
California Electric Light and Motor Com
pany as dynamo runner in the dynamo
chamber on the 1,630 level of the Chollar
mine, where the auxiliary power
for operating the Nevada Mill by
the electric transmission of power is situated.
In the dynamo chamber are a number of
small incandescent lights, some of which
have long wire attachments so they can be
carried to any part of the room for the con
venience of the workmen. Those lights are
attached to a 125-horse power dynamo used
for transmitting the power to the mill. One
of those lights was temporarily hung over a
dynamo that was being repaired. The light
net being close enough I reached up my
right hand and grasped the wire lor the
purpose of pulling in the slack. At some
previous time this wire had been wound
around a nail which had broken the
insulation, aad left a part of the
"wire bare. I, not being aware of
this, unfortunately grabbed the wire
at this place. My right-foot boot was a
little damp and in turning the toe happened
to touch a piece of iron running to the
ground. Immediately I was struck, my
right hand grasping the light wire and the
toe of my right fooUboot touching the iron
leading to the jrround, "grounded" me
(connected me with the ground), and in
consequence the current in the electric
vires, or at least a good portion of it.
jiassed through my body. Electricity will
always run to the ground first if it gets the
opportunity, so when I made the connec
tion the current passed through me to the
eround. It is very hard to define my feel
ing. First I received a most peculiar sen
sation that shook my body and
xne, and yet at the same time I was fully
conscious. I tried to let co my hold of the
Mrire, but of course found that impossible,
for the harder the shock the more con
tracted the muscles become, and conse
quently the firmer the wire is held. I tried
to shout for aid, and, although a felloir
workruan was but five or six feet distant
from tLt with his lace turned in my di
rection, I c-ould'not emit si sound nor make
the least movement to attract his attention.
It seemed as if I was being irresistibly
drawn up, with a horrible feeling of being
consumed, by the electric fluid. I fully
realized my position and believed that my
time had come. While receiving the shock
my eyesight was good until I became un
conscious. Of course I was unable to let go
my hold of the wire or move my foot from
the iron that grounded me until I became
unconscious. Then the weight of my body
loosened my hold on the wire, and
I fell to the ground. I lay like dead,
my heart pulsations entirely ceased and
also the circulation. ,The fellow workmen
saw me drop. They carried me to the fresh
air, stretched me on the damp ground, ap
plied ice water douche to me and worked
my arms to promote circulation and artifi
cial respiration. Alter the lapse of 20 min
utes, when I was about to be given up for
dead, signs of life returned. At first I was
dazed, could not understand what had hap
pened; in a few minutes, though, I remem
bered everything distinctly and got up,
feeling very weak, particularly in the
stomach. After a few days, however, the
weakness from the shock wore away and I
regained my usual health. There was no
actual pain during the shock, but where the
wire touched my hand it burned to the
bone, and the ends of the three smaller toes
were burned to the bone also.
I have since fixed the time I sustained the
shock at six seconds. The dynamo to which
the wire was attached generated a direct
current of 2,600 volts and 38 amperes, which
is equivalent to the power above mentioned.
AFIER STEYB DORSEI.
A San Francisco Bank Is Presslngo. Claim la
a Lively Manner.
New Yoke, July 12. To-day deputy
sheriffs were scurrying about town in search
of Stephen W. Dorsey. They hold an exe
cution against his body on an order issued
in the Supreme Court chambers yesterday
by Judge O'Brien. The Nevada Bank, of
of San Francisco, has a claim
against ex-Senator Dorsey for over
$1,000. The bank brought suit
recently, and obtained a verdict to recover
$1,632 76. This judgment was not liqui
dated, so an order vras granted bv the Court

Stephen W. Dorsey is found, and he does
not settle the amount of the claim, with
Sheriff's fees attached, he will be placed
At the Sheriffs office it was denied an ex
ecution had reached them from the Supreme
Court. From a reliable source the reporter
was informed the execution had been for
warded to the Sheriff's office. Be this as it
may, Mr. Stephen W. Dorsey had not been
molested yet. Mr. Dorsev was found at a
private residence on Fiftieth street at that
time, .tie was perfectly seir-possessed, but
expressed surprised at Judge O'Brien's

is all there is to it."

One of the Lost Ent Enders Heard From,
the Other Still Absent.
Nothing whatever has been learned of the

All hands want Pearline-it's handy
Enables one pair of hands to do the work of several;
millions of hands use it; millions more willjwhen they
learn its value.
You can read, write, sew, wash dishes, prepare the meals,
care for the baby with your two hands, while Pearline
is washing the clothes for you almost without the aid of
lands. It's harmless; cannot hurt most delicate of hands
or fabrics; most delightful for washing the hands. It saves
your Jiands one-half the work in house-cleaning in fact,
when your hands have anything to wash or clean, you
will find sooner or later that Pyle's Pearline is the best
thing known with which to do it.

GOOD WORK TO GO ON.
The Ladles Relief Committee Sends Ont
? 3,000 Garments, and Continues.
The ladies of the Belief Committee were
kept very busy yesterday packing and box
ing articles. Clothing was sent to 35 flooded
and homeless men and women aud to 45
children at Ebensburg. In all about 2,000
articles were boxed yesterday and 50 people
supplied direct. The ladies were in hope
of finishing their work yesterday or to-day,
but it is evident from the amount of labor
still before them that they will need nearly
a week more.
The committee has not been warned to
vacate the Exposition premises by the man
agers of the Exposition Society, and does
not expect any such notification for a week.
A New Flirting: machine.
Certain fakirs and others occupying apart

work in their windows, a contrivance
worked from an unobserved point, much as
the puppets in "Punch and Judy" shows
are. It presents the appearance of a person
at tbe window, shaking his or her handker
chief at the passer-by, to engage his atten
tion by flirtation tactics. Whether it will
go far enough to attract the attention of the
police in the Hill district remains to be
