four yeurs ago today, was a witness
to the hanging In Manchester, England,
of Allen, 1-arkln and O'Brien, the Fenians
accused of attempting to overthrow the
English government and who have been
referred to us the iianchester Mar
At the time of the execution Mr. Bailey
was a boy 15 years of ae, employed as
a messenger with the Lanchastersliire &
Yorkshire railroad, his duty being to
carry telerrrams and run errands.
The morning of the execution, Novem
ber 23, 1S97, Mr. Bailey, together with a
number of the other employes, went to
tho roof of the depot, and from this point
of vantage were witnesses to the execu
tion of the threo men. Describing It, Mr.
:! think It was about 10 o'clock In the
morning Uiat perhaps a dozen of young
fellows climbed to the roof of the depot
to look over Into the new Bailey jail
yard, two blocks away.
Reports of ltlottnsc.
"During the night before the execu
tion, there had been reports that an at
tempt would be niade to' rescue Allen,
Larkln and "O'Brien when they were
taken from their cells and escorted to
the gallows. As a result, all ot the
streets around the square In which tho
jail was located, was filled with Boldlers.
A high stockade had been built, around
the Jail and the grounds and no person
was permitted to approach nearer than
twenty to 'thirty yards. If they at
tempted to get nearer, they were driven
back at . the point of bayonets. There
were great crowds in all of the side
streets, but there was little disorder.
There was some jeering, but as the crowd
seemed to lack a leader and was disor
ganized, no attempt was made to rescue
any of the men.
"Shortly after getting onto the roof of
the depot, the three condemned men were
brought out through doors on the ground
floor of the Jail and each accompanied
by two jailers, with a large number of
guards In front and behind, marched to
the scaffold, fifty to seventy-five feet
from the prison.
"I think about six steps led VP to. the
scaffold. Up these the three fnen pro
ceeded, escorted by guards.
The Traps Are Snronnr.
"As soon as Allen, Larkln and O'Brien
reached the Bcaffold they took positions
on the traps. Hopes were tied around
their lefts and tlielr arms weiv pinioned
to their side. Then a black cap was
drawn over the head of each and an In
stant later the noose was adjusted around
the neck of earh man. This having leen
finished, tho Jailers, deputies or what
ever they were, stopped bark. The liang
nian moved a few feet away and kicked
a, lever. Tim I Instant the traps were
sprung and tho three boriles shot down
through the floor of the scaffold, drop,
ping, I suppose, three to four feet.
"The scene was so liorrlfyinn thst all
of us who were on the roof of the depot
immediately turned and huriied down
into the bulldliiK. Of my own knowledge,
I do not know what became of the bodlon.
The harm'riK was not attended by any
rioting or scenes of disorder. There wJ
lots ot talk, but It did not result lu anything."

month the rond paid a profit, the first
time sine It was built, t'p to October

The essence of hospitality is that which
leaves a memory of attractive furniture, dainty
linen, and artistic china. .
You must begin with the dining room
fiirniture itself. A Berkey &c Gay dining room
suite is the perfection of furniture making. It
appeals to trie artistic sense, even of those who
are not thoroughly versed in the meaning of
design and finish. We are the sole selling
agents here for the Berkey & Gay pieces.
Their mahogany dining tables and chairs in
period designs, and their famous "Flanders"
pieces in our beautiful American oak are so
charming that you fancy they will be much
more expensive than they are. Their beauty
of line, staunchness of construction and integ
