Mrs. Lange and her Husband's Relics. Mrs. Lange, the widow of the foreigner recently executed at Cardiff Gaol, is still in Cardiff. Her anxiety to obtain the ar- ticles in her husband's possession prior to his execution is pathetic in its intensity. The authorities will in due course hand over to Mrs. Lange a few books, a pocket- knife, etc., which were found on her hus- band when he was arrested. The consent of the Home Secretary will be necessary b- fore any of his clothes can be given up. Th>- authorities exercise considerable caution ,n this connection because of the objection*ble custom of exhibiting murderers' clothes in public. It is not true that such clothes are burned when not handed over to the relatives in- deed. a murderer is executed in the clothes he had on when arrested, and they are buried with him. Should, therefore, any clothes left by Eric Lange come into the possession of his widow, their association with the Pentre murderer would be very remote. Experienced officials say that Lange's ex- ecution was the least eventful known to them. The convict seemed as of he would out-distance the warders in the brief march to the scaffold, and his step was ;.s firm j as tnough he were an ordinary parade in the prison yard. Had he repeated his hysterical conduct at Swansea Assises, Bil- lington's task would have been a ternible I one, as Lange was a sturdy, powerful man. and had he given way to violence half a dozen men would have been necessary to hold him.
