HIS OWN HANGMAN
Frank Barker Requests Privilege of
Belnft His Own Executioner.
Lincoln, Nob , May 15.- Frank Bar
ker, murderor of his brother and sister-in-law,
near Inavale, iu Webster
county, is to bo his own hangman.
His execution is to occur on Juno
10. Tho law requires that all legal
executions in Nebraska shall bo
held at tho penitentiary, under tho
biiporvisiou of tho warden, it does
not spoblfy, however, that tho warden
or any other person shall spring tho
trap. In Barker's caso, Warden
Boomer shrinks from tho duty, as do
other olllolals at tho penitentiary.
But Barker has stopped into tho
breach and informed tho warden that
he will bo his own hangmau. Barkor
has frankly confessed that heisguilty.
Tho warden was not satisilod that
huch a proceeding would bo legal, and
ho accordingly presentod tho niattor
to tho oillco of attorney general for a
Doputy Attorney General Thonip
sou gave tho subject thoughtful con
sideration and liuully advised tho
warden that tho law merely made it
mandatory upon tho latter to see to it
that Barkor is haugoil upon tho day
llxed by tho cour'ts decree, and that
there was nothiug whatever to pro
hibit Barkor from acting as his own
executioner if ho saw lit.
Thoarrangomonts for tho execution
provido that ouo of the warden's as
histants is to adjust tho black cap
over Barker's head and pluco tho ropo
about tho condemned man's neck.
An olectricol contrivance is to con
trol the trap, counoctod up with a
wire running Into Barkers hands
The latter will bo strapped to his hips,
but Barker wlM have froo uso of his
fingers and will push tho button re
. leasing, tho trap.
Ou 'Wednesday Attorney F. G.
Humor requested permission to Hie a
motion for a rehearing In tho case of
Frank Barkor. It Is not thought tho
request will be granted. Frank has
been placed in solitary confinement,
and ho is just beginning to realize
that ho has but a short timo to livo.
Attorney Humor has not Riven up all
hope of saving Frank's neck.
NO NEW TIUAL.
Lincoln, Nob, May 17. The su
premo court has overruled tho motion
for a rehearing tiled by tho attorneys
for Frank Barkor, tho Webster
county doublo murderer. Tho forty.
day limit iu which tho motion could
have been tiled expired Tuesday.
This morning counsel for Barker sub
mitted an application for leave to tilo
