Goode and Freeman, in the Jail
at Greensburg.
Crimen for Which the Penalty of orn
Was Exactea.
GreexsBura, July 18. —John Goode
and William Freemsn, the negro marder-
ers, were banged bere this morning abort
gfter 10 o'clock. :
. The march to the gallows began at
1007. The doomed men walked with
firm steps. They mounted the gallows
aseieted by the deputy sheriffs, and the
‘drop was eprnng at 10:08 Goode | wae
given a glass of wine before the march
began. The drop was three feet. Botb
raen exhibited great nerve. |
Goode’s pulse ceased to beat in 9 min.
utes, and in 10 mivates and 18 seconds he
was pronounced dead. Freeman's pulse
~ oeased in 1114 minute, and in 1314 min-
utes be was pronounced dead. The bodies
were placed in peat caskete. A great deal
"of tbe expense of their burial was de-
* frayed by contributions from the colored
men of the town. Goode at the last mo
ment forgave his enemies, and walked to
the gallows with the firm belief that he
bad been forgiven by his God.
Phe men were placed on adjoining trop
doors in the center of the scaffold and
stood back to back. The noosee wers ad--
~ justed by Deputies Gay and Swend. The
‘black cape were quickly drawn over their
heads, and at the signal from Deputy
Bwend, Sheriff McUeny, standing at the
foot of the stairs, inserted his hand into
the top of a rope connecting with the trap
doors and pulled the srigger, | and all was
st an end. - . :

of Piteeburg. Mr. MoAleese says that
he has witnessed many executions, but
has never seen any go off as smoothly as
this one. Sheriff McCann is commended
* for the manner in which the execution
was performed.
The spiritual adviser, ascoompsanied ty
More. Nimmey, entered the jail at 7:30 this
morning, sod at once began devotional |
exercises. They found Freeman in 8 hap-
py frame of mind, but Goode, an object of
pity, crouched down on bis cot, with hie
bead tightly covered with a blanket snd
partly dressed. He moaned most piteous-
ly snd tossed about. When he was arous-
“ed the expression on his face plainly told
of his great suffering. He was persuad-
"od to pray and kneeling down, he offered
up s prayer for the safety of his soul,
Just before sunrise crowds came pour-
tog into town, and by 8 o'clock the jail
was surrounded by a curious throng ea
erly trying to get a View of the condemn-
od men. Geurds were placed at the door
of the man entrance, with instructions to
admit no person who did not present a}
ticket. Sheriff McCann, already weighed | can
down with. the nohappy thoughts of bis
tearful duty, wea driven almost to distrac-
tion with pleadings of acquaintances, who
believed they bad been lighted when the
distribation of pusses was made. They
were all tarned away, for the fall comple-
ment of tickets hed long been given ont.
There were very few colored people in tke
Nearly two bauodred persons witnessed
the execution. They came from all paris
of the county, and a faw [rom neighboring

on the first floor of the jail corridor, with
the medical staff, Jail Physician R. B.
. Hammer, Dr. Portzer, Dr. Hunter Kling-
-. ensoith and one or two visiting physi
cians. The other persons were arranged
on the balconies along the second and
third tiers of celle.
Rev. Fink and J. Marrow, of Greens-
_ burg, took charge of the remains of Wm.
Freeman and had them interred in St.

Genius is really ouly the power of

fine that wo are often on the line and

thrown up his hands at a time when a

would have achieved success! As the
tide goes clear out, 80 it comes clear in.
In business sometimes prospects may
seem darkest when really they are on
the turn. A little more persistence, a
little nore effort, and what seemed hong
less failure may turn to. glorious suc

from within, no really. insurmountable
barrier save our own inherent weakness
of purpose. —Flectrical Review.
