Evidence

"Was favoured this morning by Post with an extract from the Pall Mall Gazette on the manner in which the punishment of ""Hanging"" was carried out. The writer from English experience argued that the necks of the criminals were as a rule not dislocated & that those who died at the hangman"s hands were simply throttled. The writer considered the punishment might be much more humanely carried out. The simple truth of the matter is the ropes used in England are not long enough. If more fall was given dislocation of the neck would take place & from what I have seen in this country no fault could then be found as the death would be both merciful & speedy."
