HANGING BUNGLE.

A GRUESOME INCIDENT. (Per Press Association —Copyright.) (Received February 19, 8.15 a.m.) NEW YORK, February 18. At Calgary, Alberta, an extraordinai'y incident marked the execution of Jasper Collins, a youth sentenced to death for murdering a farmer named John Benson. Collins was unconscious in the cell before the execution, but revived sufficiently to be carried in a chair to the scaffold. The drop fell, and the executioner cut clown the body before death occurred, and the shocked prison officials were preparing to hang Collins again when death supervened. j The coroner's jury severely censured the hangman, demanding an investigation into the whole affair.
