EXECUTION AT WINCHESTER. Jamee Caffyn, the navvy who was convicted of the murder of Maria Barbar, at Elmfield, near Byde, was executed in the county prison at Winchester. The murder was one of great brutality. The prisoner and deceased had lived together. The woman met the prisoner in the Kentish hopfields, and they went to the deceased's father's house. She wished to leave the prisoner, who resisted the separation, and finding Barbar was determined he killed her with three blows from an axe, and made scarcely any at- tempt to escape. At the trial before Mr. Justice Mellor the demeanour of the prisoner was stolid and indifferent, and he has remained unmoved since his condemnation. He has been twice visited by his brother, and has been most attentive to the mimstra- tions of the chaplain, the Rev. A. J. Ladbrooke. The under-sheriff arrived at a few minutes before eight o'clock, the condemned man having previously eaten a hearty breakfast. He submitted with the utmost indifference to the process of pinion- iDg at the handa of Marwood, and, as the clock struck eight, tbe procetsion passed along the gallery and down the steps to the outer court, the prisoner walking firmly. Oa reaching the steps of the scaffold the chaplain read extracts from the Burial Service, and Marwood drew the bolt, the con- vict dying after some struggles. Muscular action and that of the heart lasted ten minutes nearly, the pri- soner being a small man, but of much physical de- velopment. There were five representatives of the prees present in addition to the officials. A black flag hoisted on the prison showed the time of the execution, and later in the day a coroner's inquest was held ac- cording to law.
