"MEN GAME THE WHOLESALE EXECUTION
Appalling Sequel of a Disgraceful
Miscarriage of Justice.
New Orleans, March 14. New Orleans
struck the Mafia a death blow to-day. It rose
in its might almost at midday and wreaked a
-terrible vengeance upon the Sicilian assassins
who relentlessly slew David C. Hennessey, and,
though there are eleven men dead to-night who
were happy yesterday over their victory in the
greatest criminal trial the city has ever wit
nessed, the work of blood was accomplished
without unnecessary disorder, without riot
ing, without pillaging, and without the
infliction of suffering upon any innocent
man, save one, and ho was only slightly hurt.
It was not an unruly midnight mob. It was
simply a 6ullen, determined body of citizens
who took into their own hands what justice had
rignominiously failed to do.
The chief of police was slain on October 15,
and that very night the evidence began to ac-
- cumulate, showing that his death had been de
liberately planned by a secret tribunal and car
ried out boldly and'successfully by the tools of
the conspirators. The trial lasted twenty-five
days, and though the evidence seemed conclu
sive the jury, currently charged with having
been tampered with, failed to convict.
Last night a body of cool-headed men,
lawyers, doctors, merchants, and Dolltical
leaders, all persons of influence and social
standing, quietly met and decided' that some
action must be taken, and the people's justice,
. swift and sure, visited upon those whom the
jury had neglected to punish.
Ihis morning a call for a mass meeting at
Olay monument on Canal street appeared in
the papers, which editorially deprecated vio
lence. The significant closing sentence of the
"COME THEPAIIED FOR ACTION."
Down in a largo room on Bienville and Royal
. street there was an arsenal which had been pro
vided by the body of citizens. The call was
answered by the populace. At 10 o'clock there
was a crowd of several thousand anxious peo
ple congregated around the statue.
Ju6t on the stroke of 10 o'clock a shout
went up from thejJpcoplo stationed at St.
Charles street and a number of gentlemen,
among whom Mr. W. S. Parkerson, Mr. John
'C. Wickliffe, and others who signed the call,
came marching along and began walking
round and round the range of Clay monument.
"Fall in, fall In," was the cry, and amidst the
'crowd formed the procession which went around
the railing several times. "Hurrah for Parker
son," "Hurrah for Wickliffe;" "Get Inside the
railing and give us a speech," these and other
-cries made up a confusion of noises, among
which the angry tone was significantly predomi
nant. The space inside the railing was occu-
'pied by a dense crowd.
EXTERMINATING TIIE EXECRABLE MAFIA.
The people who assembled at Clay statue
-hardly knew what was going to happen, but
they seemed ready to go to any length, and
while there were, of course, many of the lower
element in the throng, a largo proportion wore
the leading people of the town. There wero
three addresses, short and pithy, and business
like, and the assemblage, not unwillingly, was
soon keyed up to a high pitch, demonstrative in
its denunciation of the assassins. Each of the
speakers said there had been a great mass meet
ing months before which had met quietly and
dispersed peacefully so that tho law might
take its course. Tho law had failed.
Tho time to act had come. AY. S.
Parkeison, tho loader, Is a prominent
lawyer here, tho president of tho Southern Ath
letic Club, and tha man who led the vigorous
city reform movement three years ago. waiter
D. Deneger, another of tho speakers, is one of
tho leaders of tho Now Orleans bar; John C.
"Wickliffe, also a prominent attorney, and James
D. Houston, one of tho foremost men of tho
State. After denouncing Detective O'Malley,
who is supposed to have tampered with tho
jury, the speakers announced that thoy would
lead tho way to tho parish prison, Mr. Wick
liffe concluding with these words: "Shall tho
execrable Mafia bo allowed to nourish in this
city? Shall tho Mafia bo allowed to cut down
our citizens on public streets by foul means of
assassination ? Shall tho Mafia bo allowed to
bribe jurors to lot murderers go scot free ?"
By this timo the crowd was swolled to three
thousand or more, and before any one could real
ize what had happened tho great throng, gain
ing recruits at every step, was tramping down
the streets to the neighborhood of tho prison,
stopping only once, and that wub at tho arsenal,
where double-barreled shot-guns, Winchester
rifles, and pistols wore handed out to responsi
ble and respectable citizens in tho party. Tho
starting of tho crowd had an electric effect on
the city, Soon tho Btreots were alive with peo
ple, running from all directions and joining the
main body, which moved uulleury down Ram
part 6treet to the jail near Congo Square. Doors
and windows were thrown open, and men,
women, and children crowded on tho galleries
to encourage those who wero taking part and to
witness tho scenes. When tho main crowd from
Canal street reached the prison there had al
ready collected there a dense throDg, all eager
to take a hand in whatever might happen.
When the vanguard of armed citizens reached
the prison, which is many squares from Canal
street, that grim old building was surrounded
on all sides.
Sheriff Vlllere, when ho heard that a move
ment was on foot to take the prisoners, armed
bis deputies und then started on a hunt for
The Italian Consul and Attorney General
k j Rogers joined In tho pursuit, but his honor
doesn't roach his ofllco until noon, and ho was
not to bo found at any of his regular haunts.
Tho Governor hod not heard of the uprising and
ho had no timo to act and tho police forco was
too small to offer much resistance to
THE ARMY 01' AVENGERS.
Seperlntendent Gaster had ordered an extra
detail of officers to bo sent to tho jail and tho
crowd kept tho sidewalks around tho old
building clear until the great multitude, swell
ing all tho timo like a mighty roaring stream,
surged around tho door and crowded tho llttlo
bands of blue coats away. Capt. Lem Davis
was on guard at tho main entrancowith a scant
force of deputies. They wero swept away like
chaff before tbc wind, and in an instant tho
llttlo ante-room loading into the ante-room was
jammed with excited men.
Meantime tho prlsouers wore stricken with
terror, for they could hear distinctly tho shouts
of the people without madly demanding their
Innocent and guilty alike were frlghtoned out
of their senses, and tho prisoners who wero
charged with crimes other tnan complicity in
tho murder of tho Chief also shared in the.gen
Somo of tho braver nmong the representatives
of tho Mafia wanted to
die nanTiNG for their lives,
and they pleaded for weapons with which to
defend themselves, and when they could not
find these they sought hiding places.
Tho deputies, thinking to deceive tho crowd
by a ruse, transferred tho nineteen men to tho
female department, and there tho miserable
Sicilians trembled in terror until tho moment
when tho doors would yield to the angry
throng on the outside. Capt. Davis refused
tho request to open the prison, and the crowd
began the work of battering in the doors.
Around on Orleans street there was a heavy
wooden door wblch had been closely barred In
anticipation of the coming of tho avenging
mass. This tho crowd selected as their best
chance of getting in. Neighboring houses
readily supplied axes and battering rams, and
willing hands went to work to force an open
ing. This did not prove a difficult
task to the trembling but determined throng.
Soon there was a crash, tho door gavo way, and
in an Instant armed citizens wero pouring
through tho small opening, while a mighty shout
went up from ten thousand throats In glad ac
claim. There was more resistance for tho in
truders, however, but it, too, was soon over
come with tho huge billet of wood which a stout
man carried. Then tho turnkey was overpow
ered and the keys taken from him. By that
THE EXCITEMENT WAS INTENSE,
none the less so when a patrol wagon drove up
with a detachment of policemen, who wero
driven away under a fire of mud and stone.
When tho leaders inside the prison got posses
sion of the keys tho Inside gato was promptly
unlocked and the deputies in the lobby rapidly
got out of harm's way.
The avengers pressed into tho yard of tho
white prisoners. The door of the first coll was
open and a group of trembling prisoners stood
inside. They were not the men who were
wanted, and tho crowd very quickly, though
with romarkable coolness, burst Into the yard.
Peering through the bars of the condemned
cell was a terror stricken face which some one
mistook for Scoffedo. A volley was fired at
the man, and ho dropped, but nono of the shots
struck him, and it was subsequently found out
that ho was not one of the assassins.
Tho inmates of th o jail wero ready to direct
the way to where the Italians were.
"Go to tho female departmeot," some ono
yelled, and thither tho men with ffeeir Winches
tors ran. But the door was locked. In a mo
ment tho key was produced. Then tho leader
called for some one who know tho right men
and a volunteer responded and tho door was
thrown open. Tho gallery was deserted, but an
old woman, speaking as fast as sho could, said
tho men were up stairs. A party of
seven or eight quickly ascended tho
staircase, and as thoy reached tho
landing tho assassins filed down at tho other
end. Half a dozen followed them. Scarcely a
word was spoken. It was tho time for action.
When the pursued and their pursuers reached
tho stone court-yard the former darted towards
the Orleans side of tho gallery and crouched
down beside tho cells. Their faces blanched,
and being unarmed thoy wore absolutely de
fenseless. In fear and trembling
THEY SCREAMED FOR MERCY,
but tho avengers wero merciless. Bang, bang,
bang rang out tho reports of tho murderous
weapons and a dead rain of bullets poured into
tho crouching figures.
Geracbl, tho closest man, was struck in the
back of tho head and his body pitched forward
and lay Immovable on tho stone pavement.
Romero fell to his knees with his faco In his
hands, and in that position was shot to death.
Monastero and James Caruso fell together
under the fire of half a dozen guns, tho leaden
bullots entering their bodies and heads and tho
blood gushing from tho wounds.
Tho bloody executioners did tholrduty well,
and boneath the continuing firo Cometoz and
Trahlnia, two of tho men who had not been
tried but who wero charged jointly with tho
other accused, fell together. Their bodies
LITERALLY MIDDLED WITII BUCKSHOT
and they wero stone dead almost before tho
f usilado was over.
When tho group of assassins was discovered
on tho gallery Macheca, Scoffed!, and old man
Marchosl separated from the other six and ran
up stairs. Thither half a dozen men followed
them and as the terror-stricken assassins ran
into cells thoy wero slain. Jo Macheca, who
was charged with being the arch conspirator
was a short, fat man and was summarily dealt
with. Ho had his back turned when a shot
struck him immediately behind tho ear and his
death was instantaneous. There was no blood
from tho wound and when tho body was found
the ear was swollen so as to hldo the wound,
which the coroner had groat difficulty In lo
cating. Scoffed), one of the most villainous of tho
assassins, dropped like a log when a bullet hit
him in tho eye.
Old man Marchesl was the only ono who was
not killed outright. Ho was struck in tho top
of the head while he stood behind Macheca,
and, though ho was mortally wounded, ho lin
gered all the evening.
HANGED AND RIDDLED WITH SHOT,
Pollizo, "the crazy" man, was locked up In a
cell upstairs, Tho doors were flung open and
ono of tho avengers taking aim shot him
through tho body. He was not killed outright,
and in order to satisfy tho people on tho out
side, who were crazy to know what was going
on within, he was dragged down the stairs and
through the doorway by which the crowd had
Continued on Fourth Pago.

telegraph and report tho disaster, returning to
tho wreck at 4 P. M.
Nothing definite was received concerning tho
wreck to-night, as a heavy west-southwest wind
has been blowing all day, making it impossible
to reach Gay Head by water and board the ship.
The steam tug Mercury, which arrived here to
night, reports tho sea making a clean breach
over tho two vessels when 6h6 passed Gay Heap

COLORED TROOPS EXCITED.
Thoy Succeed In Having Gon. Ordway'n
Tho District National Guard, especially the
colored portion of It, Is all torn up. It all comes
about in this way. At tho last session of Con
gress tho appropriation made to sustain tho or
ganization was only sufficient for tho first six
battalions, and Gen. Ordway, tho commander,
was forced to take action to keep tho expenses
of tho militia within tho limit. Unfortu
nately, tho last two battalions, tho
seventh and eighth, wero those composed
of tho colored troops, but following out mili
tary rule Gen. Ordway had to cut them off.
Immediately tho cry went up that it was a blow
at tho colored companies becauso of their color.
Intense indignation was speedily generated
among tho colored troops and their friends.
Thoy met in mass meeting on Friday night and
appointed a committee to wait on tho President
and lay tho grievance before him. The Presi
dent returned from his ducking trip on Friday
evening, and early yesterday morning they laid
siege to tho White House, first having called on
Assistant Secretary of War Grant to make
known their wrongs. When they went Into tho
presence of President narrison'they were in
formed by the Chief Executive that Gen.
Ordway had been seen, and that tho order of
disbandment would be withdrawn. The Presi
dent said he, for one, stood ready to go down
into his pocket to assist tho colored battalions,
and would see that no color lino was drawn.
After tho delegation withdrew tho President
summoned Private Secretary Halford and had
him request tho immediate presence of Gen.
Ordway for a second interview. At 12:80 Gen.
Ordway came, and in a short interview the
whole affair was gone over and a policy agreed
on. For the present the general or
der of Thursday last is recalled, and
tho Guard will continue as they form
erly did. That Is, tho eight battalions
will remain intact until a more definite pro
gramme Is arranged. Tho President's idea is
that tho two colored battalions should be con
solidated and also two of tho whites, so that
the battalions will bo reduced to the limit. Gen.
Ordway was seen last night, but he refused to
talk, only to say this, that "when tho facts aro
fully made public it will bo found that I am
not tho proper subject for such criticism as has
been directed at mo." Several other staff of
ficers wero also 6cen, and they, In view of the
state of affairs, did not deem it expedient to
discuss the matter.
THE SUEVIA IS SAFE.
Narrowly Escaped tho Eato of Other Ves
sels in Start Bay.
Plymouth, March 14. The Hamburg-American
Lino steamer Suevla, concerning whose
whereabouts considerable anxiety was felt since
she was reported on Thursday in a disabled con
dition sixty miles off the Lizard, arrived hero
safely this morning. TheSuevia left New York
February 20, for Hamburg. Upon her arrival
hero It was found that her low-pressuro cylin
der was smashed to cioms and that the piston
rod was bent. She narrowly escaped tho fate
of the other vessels which went ashore in Start
Bay during the recent blizzard. So soon as
possible after tho accident tho Suevla was
headed southward, with her lower topsail set.
She is brig-rigged, and owing to the forco
of tho gale she got good- steerage way
upon her, everything" considered. Under this
sail tho Suevla drifted to the westward, and
eventually got out of the channel at tho height
of tho gale. It was feared that the topsail
would bo blown out of Its bolt ropes, but tho
sail stood tho strain grandly. Under this sail,
and heading westward, the Suevla continued
until yesterday afternoon, when her engineers
managed to disconnect tho smashed cylinder
and arranged so as to bo able to place her under
Bteam with ono cylinder. The steamship was
then about twenty-flvo miles south of the
Bishop's Rocks. She finally reached Plymouth
without assistance. While in distress tho
Sucvia was spoken by tho steamer Adirondack,
bound for Genoa, but the weather prevented
tho latter from towing tho Hamburg-American

Favor of a Statue.
The Spinner Memorial Association met la6t

form tho memorial shall take. There was a
largo attendance of ladles present, Miss Toner,
tho president, In tho chair. Threo or four gen
tlemen who appeared in the rear of tho hall
wero informed that it was a ladies' meeting,
and gentlemen wero not expected to be pres
ent. Tho intruders withdrew, properly crushed.
After considerable animated discussion, in
which various opinions, pro and con, wero ex
pressed with much forco and some
heat, it was decided to go to balloting. It was
decided to suspend tho rules and call tho roll,
letting each lady express for what object she
was voting, a plurality of votes to decide. Tho
roll was called, and tho result was eighty-eight
of those present voted in favor of a statue,
twenty-five in favor of a clinic or hospital, and
seven for a scholarship. Tho president, after
tho tellers announced that a large majority wero
in favor of a statuo. declared that the Spinner
Memorial Association stood committed to a
statuo. Tho association then adjourned, to
meet in two weeks at Wlmodaughals to fix tho
sum to bo worked for.

Tho Club Starts Off in a Most Encour
Tho handsome and commodious quarters of
tho National Capital Press Club, at 1347 Penn
sylvania avenue, wero formally opened last
night with a housowarraing, to which news
paper men generally wore invited. Although
tho club Is but a few woeks old, it already num
bers about ono hundred and thirty members,
all of whom wero present last night, and in ad
dition there was fully an equal number of
guests who enjoyed tho hospitality of tho now
organization. Tho affair was a success In overy
way, and the members of tho club wero warmly
congratulated on tho beauty and convenient
location of their house and the completeness of
Tho building was thronged from early in tho
evening until a reasonable hour with most of
tho newspaper men In the city. All seemed to
enjoy themselves thoroughly, and there was a
general exchange of congratulations that at
last Washington had a press club worthy of the
city and of tho profession.
Tho rooms on the lower floor of tho building
wero prettily decorated with palms, Easter
lilies, azaleas, and other flowering plants from
the green houses of the Messrs. Small and Free
man, and with tho doors between tho three
large apartments thrown open tho suite presented
a very handsome appearance. Tho rooms on
this floor consist of tho double parlors, a largo
vaulted reading and reception-room, lit by a
sky-light, a dining-room, butler's pantrv, bath
room, and hat and cloak-room. On the floor
above are the billiard and pool-rooms, tho offi
cers' room, a kitchen, and store-rooms. On the
fourth floor are three rooms that will bo used
for general-club purposes,
All tho rooms are handsomely fitted up. Tho
furniture is comfortable if not luxurious, and
all together the house is eminently well calcu
lated tq give the members all that they can ask
in tho way of club conveniences. The central
location of the club-house is bound to make it
a rendezvous for newspaper men and their
friends, and this is expected to prove a great
element in its success.
Although the membership is limited to
bonajidc newspaper men, there are enough of
these in Washington to insure the success of tho
club. As already 6tated, there are now about
one hundred and thirty members, and this num
ber will probably bo increased to two hundred
within a few months.

informal affair. A lunch was served, consist
ing of chicken salad, sandwiches, claret punch,
coffee, and other light dishes and beverages.
