Louisville, Ky. March 9.—Macey Warner was hanged in Jeffersonville jail at 10:50 this morning. Just before the signal was given Warner laughed and said to the Sheriff; "I am ready if you are." Warner and his victim, Frank Harris, were fellow convicts in the Jeffersonville prison and both were employed in the shoe shop. Warner coolly prepared a shoe knife as if for his work, and, announcing his purpose to another convict, hunted up Harris and cut his throat in the presence of a crowd of convicts. Both Warner and Harris had been noted criminals. The murder was the result of a trivial quarrel.
