' regarded as tho most desperato Anarchist of
the lot. It was he who manufactured tho
bombs for tho Haymarket riot and in whose
eeU the bombs were found last Sunday,

At a quarter to 0 precisely, lingg placed in
hi mouth one of tho powerful caps used in
exploding dynamito, bent over and lighted a
candle and then flrod it.
Tho explosion tore away both lips and tho
tongue, lacerated the face horribly, blew
away nearly all tho teeth on tho
left side and fractured the lower
maxillary. He fell to tho floor with a
Stifled cry and lay there in a convulsion of
agony, the blood rlourlng from tho ghastly

When the door was opened by tho death
watch and tho jailer tho man presented a
spectacle never to bo forgotten. There was
little smoke from tho explosion and the re
port was into that of a 22-calihre pistol
somewhat muffled. Lingg was hurriedly
raised and plaoed upon his cot, and at first
was supposed to bo dead. Tho blood pouring
back into the throat was strangling him.

He was turned up on his sido, his eyes
protruded and the sight seemed to havo been

he is reported to be ropidly sinking.

The shattering of tho candle caused tho r.
port that it was a bomb hidden in a candlo.
If it had been a bomb it would havo blown
the jail to pieces.
There is great excitement all over town
and all kinds of rumors as to what the offeot
of Line's act will be.
NOnTTIEABT COMVTDOn IN THE JAIL.
The general Impression seems to bo it will
only insuro tho hanging of tho rest of tho
oaLxsnr wn.ii decids to-dat.
Gov. Oglcsby has just announced by wire
that he will give his decision in tho petitions
for clomonoy during the afternoon.
DESCRIPTION Or TIIK CAPS
The caps used in oxploding dynamito are
ono inch long and made of Pressor copper.
They contain five grains of puro fulminate of
mercury, which more than half fills tho cap.
The fuso 1b inserted in this, and when tho
spark roaches th- fulminate tho powerful
detonation is sufficient to explodo the dyna
mito surrounding it.
I once saw tho whole hand blown off a
miner who was incautiously twisting a fuso
into one of theso caps. Tho copper tubo is
invariably scattered by tho explosion and
the fragments, as sharp as a kuifo, add
materially to its deadly powers.
DOW DID HE OET TIIE CAPS?
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 the
bombs found in hia cell wero placed
there by police, and now it will be soon that
the materials hod been conveyed to him by
somo one who knew the deadly power of
theso caps. They are no largor than
tho 22-callbro cartridges, and could
as easily be concealed in a
part of his clothing without
attracting notice even if he were searched.
Tho cap which did this work could havo
been passed to him a dozen ways. Eda Mailer,

it in her mouth and passed it to him in a

NO BION OF UIS INTENTIONS.
Lingg gave no signs of his design this
morning. His "Wio Getz" was as ohoorful
as usual. When ho awoko and saluted his
death watch, once looking out of his cell, ho
laughed. There was nothing in any occurrenco
to laugh at and something in his thoughts
seemed to amuso him. Several times he
paced up and down in his usual nervous
fashion. Then he became quiet and attracted
no notice until tho explosion.
EXCITEMENT AT THE JAIL.
Intense excitement reigns in the jail. It
was at first thought that Lingg had shot his
death watch; then it was supposod he had
fired a pistol through the bars at some
one. A hundred voices were clamoring
at once. Fielden, Parsons, Engel and Schwab
pressed their faces against the grating to see.
Spies cowered in 'the uttermost end of his
cell. Fischer yelled in terror. Tho pistol
theory still obtained for some minutes after
Lingg's coll had been opened. But no
weapon was found. Tho candle, with its
end shattered and bloody, was found
near him, and this led to the supposition that
Lingg had used a bomb concealod in a candle.
It was not until the physician had found a
fragment of the copper in the moss of raw and
quivering flesh which was once the handsome
face of the bomb-maker that tho truth was
SPIES IS HAITI.
When Spies learned that his mortal
onemy of late had hoisted himself on a

tion. There has been no Ioyo lost between
theso two Bince tho Supreme Court's de.
cUion. Spies stood in deadly fear of
Lingg, and Lingg seemed resolutely deter
mined that Spies's neck should not escape the
gallows by any show of contrition or wild ap
peal for clemeney. ' ' Hang or go free " was
Lingg's motto, and he meant to see that Spies's
fate should not be gentler than his own. It
wag thought- by those conversant with
ths affair that upon ths slightest show

The ease with which Lingg got or retained
the dynamite cap, in spito of all precautions,
has shown danger to many people who hvao

CnicAoo, Nov. 10 Bombs and infernal
machines or things that aro alleged to bo
bombs and infomal machines continue to bo
picked up all ovor the city. In many cases
they aro "dummies" scattered about by
weak-minded persons who havo a curi
ous hallucination that thero is some
thing funny about scaring a lot, of
timid pooplo into hysterics. Some of tho
articles seem to bo real bombs, though why
theyshould bo put whero they aro found
no one knows. This morning a physioian
living out on the west sido found on his front
porch a round box about three inchos long
and ono and ono-half inohes in diamoter. It
waa inclosed in a thick covering of brown
paiier, on which was written: "Don't let
any ono seo you open this. Two lives aro
worth moro than ono. Bowaro, beware. Tho
city calls upon you for holp. Bo careful
upon which end you open this."
The box was token to tho Desplalnos street
station and f onnd to contain a quantity of sat
urated gun cotton. Tho noxt development was
tho finding of a bomb on the bock porch of
another residence on the west side by a lot
tor carrier. It was a piece of stoam pipo
about soven inches long, and to ono ond of
which was attached a fuso. It was taken to
tho Desplainos street station, and a plumber
was sent for to open it. Tho pipe contained
ploces of iron, nails, eto., and enough
dynamite to have blown tho house to
pioccs. So great is the terror of
bombs that anything in tho shapo of pipo
that is found anywhere is straightway pro
nounced an Anarchist bomb, but in these
cases there appears to havo been an actual
attempt to kill somobody, though no one
know that tho persons threatened wore par
ticularly obnoxious to tho "Reds." Sensa
