Hudson-, N. Y., May 1.
At 2 p. m. yesterday Waltze," who
is to be hanged atCatskill to-tiay for
the murder of Harmon IIulcKer, the
Albany scissors grinder, lnade a
fiendish attack upon his Iweper,
Chas. Ernst, injuring hharheyond
any possible hopes orpTecovery.
Since Tuesday last, wheifwe prison
er was taken to a farm tofrpoint out
the locality where bead buried
another victim, he haalbcen un
changed, and Ernst hasjyieen con
stantly with him.4- Waltee had suc
ceeded in tearing up a piece of iron
Jroni the floor of his cetLfik This bar
-was two and a half inches wide,
doubled up so as to makeit about 17
inches long, and was three-eighths
of an indies in thickness." Waltze
had stuffed it with paper so as to
deafen any sound that might result
from striking a blow with it. He
had secreted it under,hisbed when
32rnst entered. After dinner he stole
up behind him whilehe was lying
upon the sofa and struclchim four
blows ujxm the head, breaking in
Iiis skull at every blow, any of
-which would have proved fatal. He
lhen dragged his victim into a
corner out of sight, and secured the
ko.y of the cell and tho (Officer's rc--volvcr
and covering np' the blood
stains with paper, endeavored to un
lock the door of his celI,yhoping to
gain his liberty, which result he
would have easily attained, hut at
this juncture Geo. 01ney,in company
with the reporter, rang, the bell of
the outer door, thereby alarming
Waltze, who retired into- the fur
ther corner of wis cell. The bell
was answered by the Deputy Sheriff,
who with the two gentlemen, pro
ceeded to the door oittie murderer's
cell, where they heard the groans
of the poor unconscious victim.
Receiving no replyto their calls
to Ernst, they, in connection with
the sheritr, who halTjust then ar
rived, burst in thedoor, and found
Ernst weltering in his life's blood
in the corner, to,which he had been
dragged. They immediately car
ried tho dyingjmau into the hall
way, and exanuned his wounds. It
was then discovered that Waltz had
lu's koys and revolver. The sheriff
autl deputy. sheriff rushed into the
cell disarmed the fiend, and ironed
him securely to the floor. Medical
aid wafsoon n attendance upon
Enistaild an investigation proved
that his skull had been fractured in
four-places, hishead beat into a jelly,
and his brains protruding from a
portion of his fckull, were removed.
The doctors fald nothing could be
3ono for the unfortunate man. He
'was carried to the upper story of the
'building, and hh family summoned.
Tho news tlmt Ernst had been
killed by Waltz, spread rapidly,
and an incredibly short time. Large
crowds of maddened und excited
men rushed to the jail, completely
blocking the street, and with crow
bars' and axes in hand, demanded
WaltV to be delivered to them for
immediate execution. Judge Mat
thews addressed the crowd, who
were crvtoS lynch the scoundrel,
and urged upon them a more tem
perate action, stating that Hon. R.
H. King had telegraphed Gov. Dix
asking that no ltprievc be granted;
that they should wait until an an
swer was received. In 20 minutes
an answer came sajing, "no re
prieve." On receiving this and a
further statement that Ernst's con
dition demanded perfect quiet, the
inminnj-p nnnvd irruduallv dispersed.
The sheriff then telegraphed for
military assistance, and Gov. Dix
sent two companies of the Otii bri
gade under Col. John Gould, which
arrived at Catskill at 9 o'clock. Last
evening preparations for the execu
tion wero all completed, and it will
take place promptly at ten o'clock.
This morning Waltz maintained a
stolid silence, refu-Ing to answer
any questions. Ernst was a lirst
class ollicer and highly re
spected. At nine p. m, ho was
still breathing, but will die boforc
morning. He leaves a wife and
four cluldren in destitute circum
stances. He hud been frequently
cautioned against too implicit confi
dence in the prisoner who had re
peatedly threatened his life. He
always answered the suggestions by
saying "Joe won't hurt me." Ernst
was the officer who arrested him,
and Waltz has shown on several
occasions a special antipathy to hlmL
and also to the man who made the
shackles with which ho has been
bound. Mrs. nulcher and her sis
ter arrived at Catskill last night and
saw tho murderer. She upbraided
him as he lay in his cell for the
murderer of her husband as well as
his last victim.
Washington, May 1.
The Senate Financial Committee
have had meeting's every day this
week in preparation of their new
financial bill, and expect to hold
another meeting to-day on the same
subject. They expect to report the
nature of the bill in about a week or
ten days, and think it will be ac
cepted. rostmastcr-Gcncral Creswell was
before the House Committee on
Postortices and Post Roads again
yesterday, with reference to mail
route contracts. He was examined
particularly with reference to route
No. 75S7, from Ft. Gibson to Sher
man, Arkansas. It will be remem
bered that there were ninety bid
ders, and the bids ranged from nine
hundred to eighty thousand dollars.
Wm. Ward was the lowest bidder
and got the contract, but of course
could not fulfill it, and it was re
warded to P. F. Lawyer. Mr.
Cresswell at former examinations
said he was morally certain that
Mr. Ward's bid was straw bid, but
he had no good evidence for
it and could not ignore the bid.
to-day he virtually confessed he had
done nothing to ascertain the re
sponsibility of Ward, beyond mak
ing inquiry ot an lrresponsioie post
master, while he at the same time
was satisfied that the service could
not be periprrapd for 59Q0, Mr,
Cresswell then introduced J. 51.
McGraw, chief clerk In tho Audi
tor's office in the Postollice Depart
ment. He said It had been charged
in some of the newspapers that he
v'&i at;!; fa fct-'ua M.r- .McGraw
away to get him beyond tnc rcacu
of the committee. He hoped 5Ir.
McGraw would be examined with
out unnecessary delay. It was pro
posed to send him to New Orleans
on business. McGraw tated that
not a dollar had ever been paid to
contractors beforo It was due. it
became evident that if there was
any frauds in the -postal contracts
tjiese consisted in making awards
and Hxlng the amount to pay, and
not jn making payments in the
Auditor's office. Mr, Stone, of
Missouri, has given to tho commit
tee tho names of a number of
department clerks who he desires
to have summoned as a witnesses,
but the Investigation is not Lkely
to be renewed until next week. Mr.
Cresswell has agreed that he will
not let any more mail routes until
tbv sbali have been advertised.

Joseph Waltz, the murderer of I
Herman Hotcher, and Officer Ernst
passed an almost sleepless night, j
The military under Major Davis did j
guard duty alwut the jail lastnight.
Their presence bellied to quiet the j
aspect of allairs.
The appproaches to the jail wero
filled at an early hour. The prison
er was attired in a suit of clean
clothes, and sat sullcnlj- in a corner
of his cell awaiting the hour fixed
for the execution. His father,
mother and sNter were in the
adjoining room waiting for the last
interview. His mother visited him
at nine this morning and he showed
no sign of recogntlon and refused
to speak to any one.
At 10 o'clock a. m. he was visited
by Father O'Driscoll, and his rela
tives. The funeral service of the
Catholic church was recited, when
the prisoners relatives returned to
the prisoner, preceded by the priest
and accompanied by the jnry pro
ceeded to the cell that has been set
apart for the execution.
The jury and members of tho
press arranged themselves around
the room, and Waltz, with his arms
pinioned, was seated on tho chair
beneath. The drop-rope was
quickly placed around his neck,
and at 10:17, everything being ready,
the signal was given, and Joseph
Waltz was jerked into the air; there
was no violent motion of the body,
nor nothing but a slight turning of
tho hands and arms. Dr. Mackey
pronounced life oxtinot in fourteen
minutes. The bady was cut down
at 11:9 a. in.
