At a quarter to 9 precisely, Lings placod in
his mouth one of the powerful caps used in

candle and then fired it.
The explosion tore away both lips and the

away nearly all tho teeth on the

stifled cry and lay thero in a convulsion of
agony, the blood pouring from the ghostly

When the door was opened by tho death
watoh and the jailer the man presented a
peotaolo never to be forgotten. There was
little smoke from the explosion and the re
port was liko that of a 22-callbre uistol
somewhat muffled. Lingg was hurriedly
raised and placed upon his eot, and at first
was supposed to be dead. The blood pouring
back into the throat was strangling him.
TUX WOUND r-BONOUKOID JJOETiX.
Ho was turned up on his side, his eyes
protruded and the sight seemed to have been
destroyed. With his hands he made foeble
attempts to beat away the assistants, and
with a gnrgling half cry, half moan, he
seemed to be struggling to speak.
The physician, who was hurriedly sum
moned, pronounced the wound mortal, and
at this moment, one hour after the explosion,

Gov. Oglesby has just announced by wiro

DK80BIFTI0N OF TUX CAPS'
The caps used in exploding dynamito aro
one inch long and made of Pressor coppor,
They contain five grains of pure fulminate of
mercury, whioh more than half fills tho cap.
Tho fuse is inserted in this, and whon tho
spark reaches tho fulminate tho powerful
detonation is sufficient to explode tho dyna
mito surrounding it.
I once saw tho whole hand blown off a
miner who was incautiously twittting a fuse
into one of theso caps. Tho coppor tubo is
invariably scattered by tho oxplosiou and
tho fragments, as sharp as a knife, add
materially to its deadly powers.
' nOW DID HE OET THE OAPS?
This sets at rest tho question that Lingg
was furnished with the materials of his pe
culiar warfare He and his associates, it will
bo remembered, have stoutly asserted that tho
bombs found in his cell wore placod
there by polico, and now it will bo seen that
tho materials hod been conveyed to him by
some one who knew tho deadly power of
these caps. They aro no larger than
tho 22-callbre cartridges, and oould
as easily bo conoealed in a
part of his olothing without
attracting notice even if he were searched.
The cap whioh did this work could have
boon passed to him a dozen ways. Eda Hullor,
bis sweetheart, might easily havo concealed
it in hor mouth and passed it to him in a
Women passed capsules of poison in two
sensational instances of suicide of criminals
in Franco. s
It may have come in a candle, in a cigar or
concealod in any apparently harmless trifle.
It was small, but sufficient for a desperato
mo siok or nia intentions.
Lingg gave n signs of his design this
morning. His "Wio Getz" was as cheerful
as usual. When he awoke and sainted his
death watch, once looking out of his cell, ho
laughed. Thero was nothing in any occurrence
to laugh at and something in his thoughts
seemed to omuso him. Several times ho
paced up and down in his usual nervous
fashion. Then ho became quiet and attracted
no notice until the explosion.
EXCITEMENT AT TUB JAIL.
Intenso excitement reigns in the jail. It
was at first thought that Lingg had shot his
death watch; then it was supposed he had
fired a pistol through tho bars at somo
one. A hundred voices were clamoring
at once. Fielden, Parsons, Engel and Schwab
pressed their faces against the grating to see.
Spios cowered in the uttermost end of his
cell. Fischer yelled in terror. The pistol
theory still obtained for some minutes after
Lingg's ceU had been opened. But mo
weapon was found. The candle, with its
end shattered and bloody, was found
near him', and this led to the supposition that
Lingg hod used a bomb concealed in a candle.
It was not until the physician had found a
fragment of tho copper in the mass of raw and
quivering flesh which was once the handsome
face of the bomb-maker that the truth was
SPIES IS HAFFT.
When Spies learned that his mortal
enemy of late had hoisted himself on a
petard he illy concealed his gratifica
tion. There has been no lovo lost between
these two sinco the Supreme Court's de
cision. Spies stood in deadly fear of
Lingg, and Lingg seemod resolutely deter
mined that Splea's neck should not escape tho'
gallows by any show of contrition or wild ap
peal for clemency. ' Hang or go f roe " was
Lingg's motto, and he meant to see that Spios's
fate should not bo gentler than his own. It
was thought by those conversant with
the affair thai npoa tho slightest show
appearing of clemency for Spies the bomb-
maker's aocompllco would mako a dotallod
confession and show exactly tho relations
between tho wild-eyod orator of tho Arbeitcr
Zettung, and tho hurling of tho bomb at tho
Haymarkot. Tho touguo torn from its root
will novor toll tho Btory now. The hand is
unnerved and quivering with agony that
could havo written it, and Spios is safo from

enable him to lire several days.

to hear the petition and grant a writ for an

Tho Judgo told Mr. Hunt that tho petition

CHICAGO EQUAL TO THE OBDEAL.
Undorneatb all tho chatter of tho chicken

nCIAL TO TBI XYXXIHa WOBLD. 1
OmoAoo, Nov. 10 Bombs and infernal
machines or things that aro alleged to be
bombs and infernal machines contiuuo to bo
picked up all over tho city. In many cases
thoy are "dummies" scattered about by
weak-minded persons who havo a curi
ous hallucination that thoro is some
thing funny about scaring a lot of
timid pooplo into hysterics. Somo of tho
articles seem to bo roal bombs, though why
theylshould bo put whero thoy aro found
no ono knows. This morning a physician
living out on tho west side found on his front
porch a round box about three inches long
and ono and ono-half inohes in diameter. It
was inolosed in a thick covering of brown
paper, on which was written; "Don't lot
any ono see you open. this. Two lives aro
worth more than one. Beware, beware. Tho
city calls upon you for help. Bo careful
upon whioh end you open this."
The box was taken to the Desplalnes stroet
station and found to contain a quantity of sat
urated gun cotton. Tho next development was
tho finding of n' .bomb on the baok porch of
another .residence on the west side by a let
ter carrier. It was a pleoe of steam pipo
about seven inches long, and to ono end of
which was attached a fuse. It was taken to
the Dcsploines street station, and a plumber
was sent for to open it. Tho pipe contained
pieces of iron, nails, etc, and enough
drnamite to havo blown tho house to
pieces. So great is tho terror of
bombs that anything in tho shape of pipe
that is found anywhore is straightway pro
nounced an Anarchist bomb, but in theso
cases there appears to havo been an actual
attempt to kill somebody, U 'i no one

Ono from Newcastle, Pa., says that the
Mayor of that town received a tolcgram to
day advising him to look out for an Anar
chist who had loft Pittsburg for hero, en
route to Chicago. The man was seen at
Lako Erie Junction, but did not stop. He is
tall and thin, has red hair, is slightly bald,
and wears glasses. He gives his namo as
Holier and is from Now York. Ha was in
charge of forty men. who were on the train,
each with a rifle.
KeUor says 5,000 strango Anarchists will be
in Chicago Thursday and will prevent the
execution. His story bears tho appearances
of truth, as tho men all had Chicago tickets
from Now York. Tho men refused to talk.
Several foreigners working hero joinod them
at tho junction with Chicago tickets. The
lolico arrangements for Friday aro so
thorough that if any Anarchists really do
como from abroad with the idea of making

healthy for them.

Ho says that Thursday he cleaned and white
