Capital Punishment in France. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral Free Press and Berrima District Intelligencer — 11 February 1885
Capital Punishment in France. Since M. Grevy's accession to ilio Presi dency of France tho carrying out of the ex treme penalty of the law has been so habi tually setasido that a convict sentenced to twenty years' imprisonment for forgery, arson, or robbery, is really worse off than the desperate ruffian who has murdered j several persons.

A death sen tence is never carried out in the peniten-; tiary, and there are a certain number of felons who from time to time murder a fel low-prisoner or some unfortunate wanlen.
