"BAT" SHEA ELECTR1CIZED.
Troy's Election Riot Murderer Fays th
Dannemora Prison, N. Y., Feb. 12.
"Bat" Shea, the murderer of Robert
Ross during an election riot in Troy,
N. Y., in March, 1694, was electri-
cized at 9:58 o'clock this morning.
Shea was attended to the gallows by
a clergyman from his home and by a
priest from the Roman Catholic
church of this place. After receiving
tne last sacrament he said: "I am in
nocent, father, innocent," an assertion
which he repeated during the rite of
annointment When he was conduct
ed into the death chamber he started
as he came in sight of the electrical
chair, but said nothing.
The straps being adjusted.the priest,
in low tones, read the service of the
dead. While the priest read the first
voltage was turned on. It was 9:55
when Shea entered the room and 9:58
when he was pronounced dead.
The current sent the body tightly
against the straps and the neck and
Dared legs grew purple. For thirty
one seconds the contact was main
tained and reduced to a light voltage
ior tmrty-one seconds, when the cur
rent was turned off. There was an
escape of air from the filled lungs and
Dr. Ransom ordered the current on
again. A contact of twenty-seven sec
onds was maintained and then the
stethoscope failed to show any life.
The physicians said that death was in
stantaneous. Four times before Shea had been
within the shadow of death, and each
time he was respited. The attempt to
save him from this fifth and final peril
formed one of the most extraordin
ary episodes in the story of New York
criminals. While Bartholomew Shea
died this morning there is in Danne
mora prison another man. one
McGough, who, in the presence of
witnesses, under oath and in his own
handwriting, has declared himself the
murderer of Robert Ross.
Shea made eyery preparation for
death yesterday, and it is a singular
tact that he was electricised by friends.
Warden Thayer, who read the death
warrant, had known him from boy
hood, living in the same city. Deputy
Warden McKenna, who led the pro
cession of death as a guard to the pris
oner, is also from Troy, and knew

CEN. WEYLER IN HAVANA
Cuba's New Captain General la at HI
Post Given a Royal Welcome.
Havana, Feb. 15. The steamer Al
fonso XIII arrived here at 8 o'clock
yesterday morning, having on board
General Valeriano Weyler, the new
captain general of Cuba, and a number
of other military officers.
The entire city was brilliantly dec
orated in honor of the occasion and the
bay was a splendid sight, all the war
ships and merchant crafts present
being decorated with bunting. The
chamber of commerce, the bourse, all
the big commercial houses and gov
ernment departments, the Canarlan
association, General Weyles country
men, and others, crowded upon the
chartered steamers or about the land
ing place. The troops and volunteers
were turned out to a man, together
with the fire department and police,
and for a long time past no such brill
iant display has been witnessed in
Havana. This is mainly due to the
fact that in many quarters General
Weyler is looked upon as likely to be
the man who will restore order in
Cuba, which would mean a resumption
of commercial developments, which
are anxiously looked forward to by
the commercial community.
Accompanying General Weyler were
Captains Gelaber and Linarez, who
are known as "military editors." They
will most likely have charge of the
press censorship here, and it is already
rumored that there will be consider
able more difficulty experienced in this
connection by the correspondents in
So far as the general situation is
concerned, there is not much change.
Indeed, no change of importance is
expected for some days. General
Weyler will first devote himself to a
complete review of the operations
already undertaken, and he will then
figure out the situation as it actually
exists. The exact plan of campaign
of General Weyler, naturally, is not
known, but it is belived that it will
be a very different one from that of

The American Minister's Refusal to Par
ticipate In the Celebration of the
Little Republic's Anniversary
May Result in III m Receiv
ing His Passports The
San Francisco, Feb. 11. Advices
from Honolulu to a local paper say
that unless Secretary Olney apologizes
for recent actions of Minister Willis,
that official may be given his pass
port soon. The trouble grew out of
an invitation issued by the Hawaiian
foreign office to the diplomatic corps
to participate in the national holiday
January 17, the anniversary of the
overthrow of monarchy. Minister
Willis refused to take part on the
ground that Presidend Cleveland had
not approved the manner in which the
monarchy was overthrown.
The United States was not the only
nation whose diplomatic representa
tives refused to take part England,
Japan and France sent unfavorable
replies, saying tnat as their govern
ments had never recognized the pro
visional government, and as the holi
day was given in celebration of the
formation Of that government, they
did not feel it incumbent upon them
to in any way participate.
Julian D. Uayne, editor of the Ha
waiian, a monthly magazine published
in Honolulu, arrived on the steamship
Australia yesterday. He takes a
pessimistic view of the Government of
Hawaii and says that the Japan
ese are becoming so numerous
there and so firmly established
that the islands are in danger of be
coming mere outposts of Japan.
"The thirty men, who in 16'J3, stood
as godfathers to the infant republic,
and who find themselves at the begin
ning of 1808 the only support of
Hawaii's provisional government are
uneasy. I say 'provisional govern
ment,' because that is all ' it is as yet
The failure of the effort to reconcile
the native Hawaiian's to disfranchise
ment, the sudden aggressive action of
the Japanese residents and the inde
pendent stand taken by Chinese agri
culturists, renders the situation any
thing but comfortable for them.
"The government is like a business
house threatened by bankruptcy. The
crisis may be delayed, but not for
long. There is a monthly deficit of
$40,000 and the people are rapidly
losing laith in the power ol the men
at the helm."
Dr. Hayne has not been much im
pressed by the mercy of President
Dole and his associates. "The news
paper accounts in Europe and the
United States show a grave misappre
hension of the facts as to the macr-
nanimity of the ruler of Hawaii," he
observed. "The so-called release and
pardon of political prisoners, for in
stance. The truth is no pardons have
been granted. Something similar to
the .British ticket-of-leave system has
been brought into play. All of the
political prisoners are at large, having
been discharged in four squads, the
first getting out on July 4, 1805, and
the last January I, 1896. But the
oligarchy informed a prisoner at the
time os his release he might, without
warrant or request, be arrested at the
pleasure of the executive. 1
"I consider the case of the Queen a
similar one. She, too, was 'pardoned,'
but she is, nevertheless, as much a
prisoner at her home as she was be
fore. And to indicate the spirit that
animates the 'thirty tyrants,' it should
be added that they have made Wilson
her custodian the man who they
slanderously claimed was her para
mour in the days of her power and
have spared no pains to have circulat
ed throughout the world that, having
obtained her full liberty of action, she
immediately and voluntarily relapsed
into her old-time shameful practices."
The Chinese-Japanese qnestion, the
editor declares, is of the gravest char
acter. "If things keep on as they are go

thrown upon Major Hudson's title to
the office. As Hudson was the choice
of the Resublicans for state printer
the governor decided to make his title

Dr. Miles' Heart Cure,
Cures Heart Disease.
Mr. Geo. L. Smith, of the Geo. L. Smith
Mantel Co., Louisville, Ky., writes Feb. 26,
1894: "For about a year I was a terrible suf
ferer from heart trouble, which got so bad
I was obliged to sit np In bed to get my
breath. 1 had to abandon business and
could hardly crawl PTinnd. My friend, Mr.
Julius C. VoRht, oSTiTur leading pharma
cists, asked me to try Dr. Miles' Heart Cure.
I bad used little more than a bottle when
the pain ceased and palpitations entirely
disappeared. I have not had the slightest
trouble since, and today I am attending to
U.ilness as regularly as ever."
