They wsr quickly conducted, single, file,
through gate of steer bar to th cham
ber where Seattle waa to offer hla atone
ment. There waa no conversation.
' Within the chamber all wa in readi
ness. The chair, a solid structure of oak,
would ordinarily have appeared like the
chair teen In libraries. In th somberly
bar chamber, however. It wa sinister.
Straps dangled from ita arm and back,
and shining steel clamps appeared in tha
light of th electric like tentacle out
stretched to clasp a victim.
The witnesses were seated six abreas
In an angle of the room. They shuffled
their feet uneasily and -when one leaned
forward to speak to another, hla action
waa received with frown.
Major Wood, with , two deputy war
dens, addresaed the witnesaea, going
through some small formalities demanded
by law. Then, with hla two men trooping

warden could be heard plainly reading to
thja doomed man th final summon. Tha
warden's vole droned on. It seemed to
tb witnesses Interminably. In reality

only a brief moment. Then, with BeatUe
between them, the deputy warden began
tluelr progress toward th chair, only a
few feet away.
When the. 'procession, followed by
Superintendent Woods started, a signal
wa given which plunged the death cham
ber Into blackness, save for a single
light Immediately over th chair. Thla
waa so hooded that It outlined the chair
In a circle of biasing radiance so intense
that the "remainder of the room seemed
In utter darkness. Th witnesses scare
could see each other. The prisoner saw
nothing but th chair. Thar waa no de
lay In preparing for the end. BeatUe
took his place, th prison surgeon and

History at Crime.
The crime for which. Usury Clay' Seat
tle. Jr.. was executed today was one of
tb most sensational in th criminal his
tory of Virginia, Interest In th murder
waa country-wld owing to ita unusual
feature and th swift movement of Justice.
On th eight of July 18 last Beattl
drov hla automobile Into Richmond, car
rying with him th body of hla wife,
which had a gaping ahotgun wound In
the head. He declared that a tall bearded
man had accosted him on th Midlothian
turn pi k five mile from Richmond, and
when be had requested the man to make
room for htm In the road the stranger
without warning had fired the shot which
killed Mr. ' Seattle. He added that he
had grappled with th man. but wa over
powered and that th murderer had fled,
leaving th gun behind. This story of
th crlm was maintained by Beatti t
For a brief time Seattle' story was
given soma degree of credenoe, but within
a day or two, suspicion began to point to
htm aad he was kept under closest ur-
etllance. Bloodhounds taken to th scene
of the crime refused to Have the place,
circling around tbe blood spot on th
Beattla. It eventually transpired, bad
thrown ths shotgun Into th topneau of
his automobile after th hooting, but In
pasrlng over th same railroad tracks
not far from th acen it had been Jolted
out and waa picked up later by a negreas.
This gun, which UoatU alleged had be
