A Remarkable Fancral Procession—
lucldenta Along the Line —
I ii-.ni, •<!.-.■ Throng.
Chicago. November 13th.— Flitting mile
after mile in the gloom, clown to the cold
flat earth, live unseen soulless figures—flee
ing in death as from One Great Being for
whoru alone there can be no law— found a
hiding-place to-night in the darkness at
the most desolate spot on the prairie's wide
expanse. The rive ghastly figures were
symbols of the attempted destruction of
the law. They were the live dead Anarch
ists—Spies, Parsons, Fischer, Engel and
Louis LJagg. Probably half a million peo
pie in the city of their terrible crime saw
the last public preparations for their final
flight to the tomb. Seven thousand men
and two hundred and fifty women aided in
the city, by forming in procession behind
Ten thousand people were present in the
barest, emptiest graveyard adjacent to Chi
cago. When the corpses at last were hid
den, muttered curses and bitter murmurs
and the cry of " Throttle the law I " accom
panied the parting words spoken over the
five lifeless bodies. It was almost to a
second, exact time, forty-eight hours from
the moment the scaffold drop fell with
August Spies and his comrades that the
blackest of hearses drew up at the door of
his relatives. More peculiar still was the
fact that the hearse was just ready to start
at the precise moment corresponding to the
announcement at the pallows that Spies
had ceased to breathe. This was
The scene is at the extreme northwestern
corner of the city, and the route taken re
sembled nothing so much as a monster
blacksnake. Stretching right to the center
of Chicago, and protruding out and beyond
the southwestern angle, serried lines of
blackness were formed of human beings,
wedged together into almost a single con
tinuous whole. Off from Milwaukee ave
nue Spies lived in a little oasi3 of well-to
do Americans and Germans, while the
others entombed to-day had places of abode
scattered along at intervals of five or six
blocks close te the same thoroughfare, but
in the midst of tho most ignorant ami un
couth classes of Chicago's foreign-born
population. About four thousand per
sons, most of them neighbors of Spies,
were congregated on the street and
lined the sidewalks of the block in which
Spies lived. When the time for departure
arrived— as at other houses where Anarch
ists' bodies lay— a constant stream of
mourners or curious sight-seers had been
since almost daylight pouring through the
building and viewing the livid remains, or
gazing at the weeping relatives. When
the forty-eight hours anniversary of the
scaffold-drop had come and the somber
hearse was standing patient at the curb, the
Was seen stepping out through the throne
at the Spies threshold. Supported on his
arm, with head pillowed on his shoulder,
was a clinging, girlish figure, clad in crape
from head to loot— the picture of utter woe.
Instantly a whisper was heard on every
side : " There she is '." " There's Nina Van
Zandt !" " That's Spies' wife!' 1
It was not till the coffin had been placed
in the hearse and the immediate mourners
had entered their carriages and live hun
dred blue-badged Turners had formed in
ranks ahead that the crowd discovered its
mistake. She was calmly seated in the
first carriage, with not a sign of mourning
in her apparel, nor a single trace of grief
in her pale, set countenance. The face was
unmistakably that of Spieb' youthful
proxy bride, but it had suddenly acquired
a dignity and matureness that gave an un
looked-lor but far from repellant aspect
to one of her years. Aside from this ex
pression the shapely features wore a pecu
liar yellowish pallor. It may have been
the mere fancy of observers, but those who
saw the face of Spies as he trod to his place
on the gallows say the pallor on his counte
nance then was exactly that of to-day on
the face of
She was apparelled in a well-worn fur
trimmed wrap of dark wine-colored or
purple velvet, a very simply made dress of
black silk, and small, neat bonnet to match
the wrap. Whole crowds were recovering
from surprise at Miss Van Zandt's de
meanor and dress, when the black-clad
girl who had accompanied Captain Black
into the same carriage with Spies' pseudo
wife threw back her veil and disclosed the
tear-staiued features uf the dead man's
sister, Gre:chen. Alongside Ninf>, and
apparently deriving some consolation from
words of cheer spoken now and then, sat
the aged mother of Spies, who seemed to
have rather better control of her grief than
her daughter.
The band soon ctruck np a mournful
dirge, and the procession started slowly
down Milwaukee avenue, which was lined
with such a mass of people as was never
seen on it before. Moving slowly along,
the procession was joined at the homes of
Fischer, Parsons, Engcl and Lingg, by their
remains and portions of the parade which
originated at each house. The scenes at
each of the houses were somewhat similar
to those at Spies'.
The most striking view of the procession
was obtained at the corner at [,ake and
Desplaines s.retts, for it brought so vividly
to mind the scene of May i, 188»3, when
the bomb was thrown. It was just 1:45
o'clock when the head of the line reached
the spot. At the corner is the taloon and
hall of Charles Z<-pf, the Anarchist. It
was in this saloon that Parsons took his
wife and children a r ter he had finished his
speech at the Haymarket, and where they
sat when the bomb was thrown. Two hun
dred feet south of the corner was the place
where stood the waeon from which Spies
and his comrades delivered their harangues
and counseled the throttling of the law,
and here, too, was the alley from which
Was hurled into the ranks of the police.
A little farther south is the spot where the
misaile fell and did such awful destruction
"Was it by accident, or design, that the
parade wound around this historic corner?"
was the question asked by hundreds. And
the line oi march took the marching army
of sympathizers directly past Grief 's Hall,
iv the basement of which a group of Anar
chists used to hold nightly meetings and
instruct each other in the use of dynamite
and the practice of the manual of arms.
At the hour above mentioned, the first
line of men could be seen crossing the
Desplaines street viaduct where, in 187S, a
bloody fight took place between the police
and railroad strikers. There was no ad
vance guard of police.
Chief Marshal Hepps, with two aides,
led the way. They wore no red, but simple
black clothes and crape on their arms.
Then came a brilliantly-dressed corps of
musicians. As the band passed Zepfs Hall,
which was open and filled with drinking
men, it struck up a dirge, as dia, in fact,
every other band in the procession, and
there were at least fifteen of them. Fol
lowing the first corps ot musicians walked
the Defense Committeemen, who had
charge of collecting the funds with which
it was hoped to save the Anarchists from
their fate. George Szhilling led the com
mittee, and carried in his hands a floral
tribute. Following them marched, eight
abreast, near 200 members of Aurora Turn
Verein, of wbich Speis was a member.
The whole Society did not turn out. as
many members are not in sympathy with
Some 400 of the Vorwaerts Turner So
ciety came nest, wearing red badges on
their breasts. This branch of Turners is
more strongly tinctured with socialism than
any in the city. About 100 of the Tierts
chritte Branch came next, and then fol
It was the hearse of August Spies. There'
were no nodding black plumes on it, but
the top was so covered with floral tributes
that nothing else could be seen. Inside
was a richly-covered casket. Standing out
in bold relief against the black broadcloth
of the coffin was thrown a great sash of
red silk. It was all the more striking, be
cause no flowers had been placed inside to
interfere with this idea of having Spies'
beloved colors shown to the public, even
at his death. The crowds on the streets
craned their necks to get a glimpse of this
most imposing of all hearses in the pageant.
Then another band wheeled into Lake
street, followed by many hundreds of mem
bers of the Central Labor Union, "who are
among the most extreme Socialists of the
Behind them came the hearse in which
lay the coffin of Adolph Fischer, he who
yelled, "Hurrah for Anarchy! 1 ' at the
moment he was hanged. His hearse was
well supplied with flowers, but for some
reason no red silk emblem of his faith had
been thrown across the casket in which
were his remains.
Then came the funeral carriage of Albert
H. Parsons. On the box, by the driver, gat
a man holding in his hands a floral tribute
of such size that the inscription of flowers,
" From K. of L. Assembly, 1307," could be
seen a hundred feet away. On Parsons'
collin— instead of a great sash of red— there
was a simple strip of red silk ribbon, which
was trailed carelessly from the head of the
casket to its center, and was then strung
along the floor of the hearse until it wound
itself in a little heap at the foot.
Was the remark of an onlooker. Then
along came diioihsr cohort of \h° On'-ra)
Labor Union — butchers, bakers and repre
sentatives of all sorts of trades. Behind
these were drawn the hearses of George
Engel and Louis Lingg. Over both the
black coffins were the inevitable red ban
All through this, which maybe called
the first part of the demonstration, were
interspersed cnrriaKea containing relatives
and near friends of the dead Anarchists,
but the original programme was changed
in the hurry and confusion of getting the
line together. So the. carriages of mourn
ers became somewhat mixed.
Of the procession was the turnout of peo
ple who followed after the hearses. There
were men, womeu and children. In ranks
of four to eight deep they swung into
Lak e street. Not a word was uttered by
those in the ranks or on the corners. The
most noticeable feature of this part of the
paegant was the showing made by two
local Assemblies of Knights of Labor,
composed wholly of women. All of these
wore flaming red scarlet in their hats.
ISows of crimson at their throats, and long
streamers of crimson from their shoulders,
made the appearunce of the working wo
men an object of comment. In front of
them marched Mi?s Mary McCormick,
Master Workman of the organization.
She was attended by two others, and the
trio carried a huge wreath, to the top of
which was attached a snow white-dove,
the emblem of peace. (It will be remem
bered that the signal for the gathering at
Haymurket Square was the printed Ger
man word " Kuhe," meaning peace.) This
was the only white dove in the whole line.
After the long line of people on foot had
passed, came carriages to the number of"
fifty. The procession went east on Lake
street, south on Fifth avenue and past the
building in which was formerly the office
of August Spies and Albert K. Parsons,
when they wrote the bloodthirsty editorials
for tluir respective papers.
As the first ranks of the Aurora Turn
Verein passed the building some one of its
members raised in the air a small United
States flag, and waved it over his head.
This was a signal for a cheer from the
loyal spectators on the sidewalk. In half
an hour more the procession halted at the
depot on Polk street, and the coffins of the
dead men were carried out by the pall
bearers and deposited in a baggage-car,
which then was attached to the train.
Forty cars were required to take out the
members of the procession, and hundreds
of others, besides those in carriages, went
out on different routes. So dense was the
rrowd on the tracks that when the train
pulled out it was at a snail's pace. Every
street crossing and every viaduct was
blocked with human beings, who looked
curiously at the trains as they passed by.
Out through the Bohemian district the
wheels rolled, and as the slowly moving
train passed many Bohemian womeu,
whose husbands had taken part in the riot
ous scenes of May, 18S6, peered out of their
windows and over the back fences to get a
glimpse of the car in which were the re
mains of the men who had preached an
archy to their spouses and led them in
many a strike.
There was no incident of special note
during the trip to Waldheim. Arrived
there, the people quickly dismounted, and
a band led the way to the cemetery, playing
the most mournful piece of the day. High
on the shoulders of their one-time asso
ciates were the black coflins of the Anarch
ists, each half hidden by its display of flam
ing red.
The coffins were laid upon a rude platform
in front of what seemed a rough stone hut,
perfectly windowless and with only one
small door. A moment later a person who
had followed the coffins to this point
couldn't stir a hand or foot in any direc
tion, so thick had the crowd become.
The relatives of the dead meu ouickly
gathered beside Captain Black on the plat
form. The Captain delivered the first of
the funeral orations. It was couched in
clear-cut, elegant language, but had no
effect on the crowds. It was principally
devoted to laudation of the dead men.
Robert Keiizel spoke next in Uertnan,
and was rather violent in his denunciation
of everyone connected with the trial. Ho
roused up the crowd considerably.
I. J. Morgan, a rabid English Socialist,
followed in a violent harangue on the pres
ent cotdition of society. "He said there
could be nothing but contempt for the law
which hung his comrades. Here an ex
cited listener yelled,
"throttle the law."
Morgan continued to speak in the most
bitter terms of all connected with the An
archists' case.
The last speech was by Albert Carrlin,
formerly of the Arbeiter Zeitung. He
scarcely got a fair start on what apparently
was about to be a typical anarchy harangue,
when Captain Black stopped him. It was
pitch dark, and the people were being
wrought up to a high pitch by the oratory
and surroundings.
The coflins were secured in the vault,
and the people made their way to the car
riages and trains. The great object-lesson
of the century was at an end.
Attempt to Assassinate a MilltliMtiun Juat
Itf-fnri- Daylight.
Chicago, November 13th.— A great deal
of excitement was caused among the mem
bers of tbe Second Regiment early this
morning by the report of an attempt to as
sassinate one of the guards oa duty on tbe
outside of the armory at Washington
boulevard and Curtis street. Private M.
Bell was patrolling at the north end of the
building and at about 4:40 o'clock was
startled by the report of a (run and a bullet
whistling past his ear. The shot apparently
came from the top of the coal-sheds in the
rear of Carpenter street. Immediately the
alarm was given and the soldiers turned
out and overhauled the neighborhood, but
without discovering anyone. The militia
are at a loss to account for the shooting,
unless it was done by some Anarchist.
The Police Vigilant.
Chicago, November 13th. — The entire
squad of the Central detail of police was on
duty this morning at 9 o'clock. About
twenty men had been held in reserve all
night and spent the day in tbe station, in- |
stead of being assigned to positions on the :
line of march. About 12:45 o'clock, shortly
after word was received that tbe funeral
procession had been started from August
bpies' late home. Captain Hubbard called
on the men to fall in, aud assigned those
who had not been on night duty to sta ions I
along the line of march from Lake-street '
bridge to the corner of Fifth avenue and
Harrison street. Fonr men were placed at
each street intersection, and orders were
given to stay until the crowd dispersed and
then go home and report this evening at 9
o'clock for duty.

WttfeuMVcnr, November 13th.—[Special 1
There has been some talk among Republi
can Representatives who have visited
V> ashington recently of the feasibility of
supporting rival Democratic candidates for
the Speakership to Carliale. This gossip is
based upon the desire of Republicans to
forme-) r trouble between the protection
leader of the party, Randall, and the
revenue reform apostle of Democracy
Carlisle. It is not at all likely that any
Republican Representative will vote for
any Democratic candidate for Speaker that
may be brought forward in opposition to
the notnmse of the Democratic caucus, and
it is cafe to ftasume that no Democrat will
con^.4 „j lead a party of bolters against
12' Steftje nomination.
Carliifie'win be nominated artd. elected
Speaker, it is said. He will, as soon as
elected, call Congressman Kelley. of Phila
delphia (the '• Father " of the House), to
the chair and request him to name the
Committee on Elections. This aknost un
precedented action is made necessary by
the fact that Carlisle's right to a seat is con
tested by his late opponent in the Coving
ton District, Thoebe. Nobody claims that
Thoebe has sufficient ground of contest to
take Carlisle's Beat, but if the Committee
on Elections, appointed by a Republican
member, should report in favor of his title,
there is no Democrat in Congress who
would raise his voice or cast his vote in op
position to such finding.
Sparhs Likely to Pose an the Injured
Friend of tlie Public.
[Copj/ri^lii, 1567, by <A« C<*i/omia MsoeiaitJ J'ras.]
Washington, November 13th.— [Special 1
Commissioner Sparks, of the Land Office,
still refuses to say what course he will
adopt in replying to Secretary Lamar's let
ter. Sparks is a tighter, and it is believed
he will not go out without expressing his
defiance toward Lamar and the President.
He can assume to be the friend of the peo
ple, as against the corporations, in the mat
ter of his controversy with the Secretary of
the Interior, but doubts are expressed as to
his willingness to make an open buttle
with the Administration.
No doubt is felt that Sparks will go, but
as to the manner of his going there is grave
uncertainty. L>ast night, in conversation
with a friend, he declared that he would
not resign, but that he should only go
when removed. To-day he intimated that
he might resign. He refuses to talk with
newspaper correspondents on the subject of
the Lamar letter, but to-morrow he expects
to be at his desk and to have prepared a
statement for the public.

—George T. Bromley, for so long Consul

Washington, November 13th.— Secretary
Lamar, during an interview with a reporter
said that, in view of the published state
ment that his letter to Commissioner Sparks
had been submitted to and approved by the
President before it was sent to the Commis
sioner, he wished to say that neither the
President nor any other member of the
Cabinet, ami. indeed, no one outside of his
own office, so far as he knew, had any
knowledge whatever of the receipt of the
Commissioner's letter or his reply thereto,
until it was delivered to the President Fri
day evening.
The Land of l'roinlic.
El Paso (Tex ), November 13th.— El Paso
is at present the focus of a lar^e number of
railroad excursionists, who arrive daily as
fast as the railroad linos can bring them
from the East, and then go weat and south.
About one-third of all excursion trains go
south to the City of Mexico, on account of
the low round-trip rate lately made ; but
all finally direct their course to California,
the modern land of promise.

N'kw York, November 13th.— The Tribune
says: Robert T. Lincoln, talking with a
friend about the defeat of Colonel Fred

as even & trifle relieved by the idea : " That
effectually disposes of the promised ticket
of Lincoln and Grant. A hereditary plat

Trafalgar Square the £ cene of Great Tur
bulence Yestorduy.
Lokdoh, November 13tb. — The procla
mation of Sir Charles Warren, head of the
London police, forbidding the holding of a
meeting in Trafalgar square to-day, was
placarded throughout London last "night.
At 8 o'clock this morning Trafalgar square
presented an animated appearance, owirn;
to the continual arrival of bodies of police,
small drafts having been made from every
district in the metropolis. Three hundred
grenadiers were stationed in the barracks
in the rear of the National Gallery. Police
to the number of 1,500 formed a hollow
square four deep on the southern side for
the purpose of protecting Trafalgar square.
Twenty-live hundred more were held in
reserve. There were double patrols in a!l
debouching streets until 1 o'clock. There
were uo signs of a procession. At that hour
groups— mainly of sight-seers or roughs
began to assemble in the vicinity of the
square, but a squad of mounted police kept
traffic moving and dispersed each group as
it formed. During these charges there were
many exciting incidents.
As the crowd thickened the police weie
compelled to use their batons. Ky 3 o'clock
there was an immense concourse of people
packed on the steps of St. Martin'f Church
and Morley's Hotel, and on the roofs of
house in adjacent streets. The majority
seemed to be respectable people, attracted
by curiosity. The remainder were loafers
of the worst classes. Several arrests were
made about this time.
Finally various societies — Socialists,
Hadicals and Irish — approached the square
from every direction. The iiaraders were
headed by bands of music, and they carried
banners and mottoes. The police attacked
each group as it arrived near the square.
On The Strand and Northumberland ave
nue, Whitehall, Pall Mall and other adja
cent streets. One of the societies succeeded
in entering the square, but was repulsed
lifter a bloody fiebt, in which Commoner
Ciraham was seriously injured. Oraharn
was subsequently arrested lor attacking the
At 4:30 p. m. the crowd in the vicinity of
the square numbered 100,000. and the police
were powerless to thoroughly disperse
them. Cavalry and infantry were sum
moned to the assistance of the police, but
no charge was made, as the people of thtir
own accord began to disperse at dusk.
About 200 citizens end 40 policemen MN
injured. Fifty persons were arr<*ted,
among theci being Socialist Burns.
Some of the injured were well enough to
leave the hospital after treatment,.
One patient was dreadfully burned with
vitriol squirted from a syringe. Another
declares he was bayoneted in the buttock.
Five policemen were stabbed with knives.
It was noticeable that the crowd, while
hooting the police, cheered the cavalry and
infantry posted in the middle of the square
ready for action in case the crowd broke the
police line. If the crowd had saeeeet'ed in
breaking the line it is believed the Riot Act
would have been read and the iufantry or
dered to fire.
When the cavalry force, with Colonel
Tal-bot at its head, arrived from Whitehall I
and Magistrate Mat sham was prepared to
read the Riot Act, in case such warning
shookl beco>ae necessary, the crowd be
came f?ood-humored, in marked contrast
with their demeanor r.n the arrival of the
mounted police. While the guards trotted
eight abreast around the square, cheere
wont up; accompanied by ehouts of "Bravo,
Marshum !" "We want free speech-!
" We are all true Englishmen, Irishman
and Scotchmen !" "We only want our=
legal rights as- citizens of London !"
The second ciTcnit of the square Dy the
guards elicited opposition from a mob of
roughs in the crowd, who shouted, " Brit
ons, shall not be ruled by lead and bayo
nets '" Three groans were given for the
Home Secretary. The guards patrolled the
square several times, and then turned into
adjacent streets-. They succeeded in awing
the roughs and in greatly thinning out the
At 5 o'clock the grenadiers wheeled into
the Bq'dnre with hayooets fixed and with
twenty rounds of ball cartriegc-; in iinir
pouches. They ireje r.ccompanieti by an
ambulance. They halted in front of the
National Gallery and opened into line. The
mob was thus caught between lines of the
police and military, and the roughs were
compelled to run the gantlet. They were
hastened on tljeir way by a shove from one
of the pulicenien, a cuff from another, and
kicks from a third. Some of them showed
a disposition to maintain their ground, but
the soldiers brought their bayonets to a
charge position, and the sight "of the cold
steel quickly decided them to retreat.
The officers of the grenadiers rushed to
the front and ordered their men to replace
their arms, and the eoldie7S then contented
themselves with pounding with their rifles
on the toes of the crowd,, and boxing the
ears of turbulent rougos with vigor, which
seemed to delight tbe policemen. The
crowd now hooted tho military with an
energy equal to that with which they had
cheered them before.
Soon after 5 o'clock the police made a
series of violent charges with their
batons in determined efforts to clear the
whole vicinity, many points of which had
been crowded all the afternoon. D«ring
one charge a whole window of an
electrical shop fell with a crash. The
crowd asserted that the window was
broken by the hoofs of some of the police
men's horses. The police, however, as
sert that bricks were "thrown at the win
dows. The loafers made a rush for the
contents of the window, but tbe police re
captured many articles and arrested the
thieves. A minute later the window of
a refreshment room was smashed in by the
pressure of the crowd. There were one
or two similar cases in the course of the
charges, but by (i o'clock there was no fear
of further trouble. At QM the whole force
of soldiers again patrolled the square, and
finally the crowd dispersed completely.
At Whitehall by the victorious police
marching with captured flags and
banners. The mounted police and
Life-guards were now ordered in
the direction of the Parliament buildings,
the side streets being cordoned with Con
stables to prevent rushes. This move
cleared Whitehall aud Parliament streets,
and the guards, with the exception of the
body retained in Trafalgar Square, were
enabled to return to their barracks by 7
Quiet was now somewhat restored,
though the square was still cordoned by
police. Away fiom the central scene there
were several outpost affairs. The most se
rious affray occurred at 4 o'clock at the
bottom of Wellington street. Sticks and
stones were Iretl v uaed by tbc mub, .ml
many policemen were injured.
An luspector had his nose broken by a
blow from a clenched list, and the man
who committed the assault and twenty
others in his company were at once put
under arrest. Another procession, consist
ing of several Radical and Socialist clubs
from Clarkenwell, made its appearance at
Broad street and Bloomsburg, but was for
bidden to enter St. Martin Lane. Several
conflicts ensued.
A large body arrived by St. James street
and Pali Mall at 4 o'clock, hooting Carlton
and cheering the Reform Club. When this
body was near the Athenaum Palace a line
of police barred the way. The crowd re
sisted, nnd the police clubbed and drove
them away. Their banners were broken
dowu and trodden underfoot. Meanwhile
Who was sitting in a cab unobserved, re
turning to Marlboroogb House, ordered a
drink for all the policemen on duty near
the house. The Pall Mall clubs followed
his example.
The Executive Committee of the Radicnl
Federation held a meeting last night and
resolved to hold a meeting of delegates on
Wednesday evening at the London Patri
otic Club to decide upon measures for re
peating the attempt to hold a public meet

P. A. Finigairs patent stall for starting
horses was tried for the first time and
proved a grand success. The horses are
stationed on the track in what may be fit
tingly termed an improvised stabte, which
is divided into stalls. The horses are ar
ranged in such a manner in the stalls that
neither they nor riders can see each other,
consequently there can be no jockeying.
At a given signal an attendant who is sta
tioned behind the animals, pulls a rope
which stretches across the track, and every
thing is in readiness for the start when the
canvas is removed. On the sound of a
bell, ox tap of a drum, the attendant in the
rear touches a spring and the rope, which
stretches immediately oyer the horses'
backs, strikes the animals almost simulta
neously, and the bunch of six or ten, or
whatever number they may be, shoot out
of the stable together, and the result is a
perfectly even start.
A good horse by this scheme will never
get left at the post, and this is one of the
principal reasons that induced the inventor

Los Angeles, November 13th. — Another
sensation is promised on the trial of Hattie

It is now said that the girl claims that
Harlan was shot Dy accident ; that during
the ride on the latal night she threatened to
shoot herstlf and tried to do so, after escap
ing from the buggy ; that Harlan leaped to
the ground and caught her, and in the
struggle the weapon was discharged, killing
him ; that the sister of Hattie and her lover

that the latter was set oil tire. This theory
of the tragedy will, it is expected, be urged

Portland, November 13th.— The police
authorises here have been informed by
wire from Moscow, Idaho, that the veritable
Pete Olsen, who killed Mrs. Lyons in Nana
county, Cal., was arrested at Moscow yes
terday under the name of Ole, or Olef
Johnseu or Jansen. He had all the marks
and manners of Olsen, said the telegram,
and was unable to give anything like a
satisfactory account of himself, but has
been working in grain warehouses for the
past few months. The local officers are
holding him pending the arrival of a
requisition from Sacramento.
The prisoner is sullen and nervous, and
appears to be relieved by having been ar
rested. Despite the fact that co many
'• Pete Olsens' have been arrested in Ore
gon and Washington, the police are ir.
clined to believe that the right man has at
last been found.

and burned the Grand Central Hotel, owned
by Mrs. George Edwards, besides Morris &
O'Connor's general merchandise store,
Mariott's variety store, Sylvester & Bliven's
saloon, and Glasson's blacksmith chops.
The fire started in Morrison <fc O'Connor's
store, Morrison and family living in the
same building and barely escaping with
their lives. The firemen succeeded in pre
venting the flames from spreading or cisc
the whole town would have been destroyed.
The ioss will probably amount to $00,000,
while most of the property was partially
insured. It is also supposed that the fire
was incendiary in origin.
