stitution and four hundredth of the discov

Mr. Hatch, of Missouri, rising to a point
of order, sent to the clerks desk and had
read the instructions given to the confer
ence committee by the house relative to
the Hennepin caiial, Sturgeon Bav, Po
tomac Flat, and other clau-es of the river
and harbor aonnmriaticin bill T1m nmnt
of order he made was that the report of the
conference committee was in direct viola
tion of even single instruction riven bv
the house, and therefore was not In order
and should not lw received. If this report
was received no confidence could hereafter
be placed in a conference committee.
Since the first day of the first session of the
first congress no such record had ever
been made by a conference committee. It
stood alone without singW preceedent.
It had no preceedent and e trusted it
would never have an imitation, He held
that the house conferees vera bound in
honor by the instructions of the house and
could not exceed the instructions.
Mr. Blanehard, of Louisiana, wished to
inform the gentleman from Missouri that
the house confercs did not propose to take
thpi'r irtp! nf honor from mm. It was not
true, as stated by the gentlenian, that every
single item about which tie house had
given instructions was in tlA; bill, and the
gentleman knew it was not true. They
had all been modified except the Potomac
flats item. He was aware Itbe gentleman
did not expect the point of frder to be sus
tained. It was a part of fie plan of the
gentleman and other would-be leaders on
the floor to defeat this bill1 The purpose
and object of the gentlemadwas to provoke
a discussion and delay the bill. The same
point had been debated in the senate when
the question of appointing conferees was
before that body, and the decision arrived
at was that the action taken bv the house
did not amount to an instmction, and did
not prevent a free conference.
Sir. Hatch The gentleman stated that I
said what was not true. 1 reiterate just
what I said. The conferee, were instruct
ed to strike from the senate amendments
certain paragraphs and cV(jy one of those
paragraph are still in the bill. I don't say
they have not been modified. They have
been modified. They have been oiled a
little in order to enable theihouse to swal
The speaker said that wiile under recent
practice the house might justruct its con
ferees, it might afterwards! desire to reverse
thbe instructions. This imight be done
upon a conference report jnd as the effect
ot the pending report was to bring the mat
ter again before the house for its action, he
was of the opinion that thct point of order
was not well taken.
Ilr. Hatch raised the question of consid
eration against the report, but the house,
111 to 24, decided to consider it.
Mr. Willis, of Kentucky, a member of
the conference committee, .said that he had
declined to sign the report because he hon
estly believed" that if it were ratified by the
house it would be not onlv the end of this
bill, but the end of every river and harbor
bill in the future. He 'annealed to every
friend of rivers and harbors to vote down
the conference leport. If that were done
before the sun set today there would be an
other report free from" objectionable feat
ures. The house then, yeas 102, nays 133,
refused to agiee to the report of the con
ference committee, and upon motion of Mr.
Willis the house further insisted on its
disagreement to the senate amendment and
a fuTther conference tvas ordered.
Mr. Randall, of Pennsylvania, from the
committee on appropriations, reported a
joint resolution extending, until the 12th of
August, the provisions of the joint resolu
tion providing temporarily for the expendi
tuies of the government, lie ;iskcd for its
immediate consideration, but Mr. Hiscock,
of New York, objected aud the resolution
was not received.

tee on public Lands reported back the alien

Mr. Blanehard asked that under the cir

The state offered in evidence articles
which appeared in the Arbeiter Zcitung
just prior to the -Uay marssacre, outlining
the violence which would follow the
inauguration of the eight hour
movement. One of the articles declared
that no morning should pas, without the
announcement "being published that the
carcass of a Pinkerton detective had been
found by the roadside. Under date of
November 27, 188"), notices were printed
announcing that aimed drills would be held
every Sunday morning at No. 58 Clay
bourne avenue to prepare for a revolution
on May 1st. On the same date a method
for fashioning dynamite bombs was out
lined. In December, 18S3, an article
warned the workingmen not to assemble
May 1 unless armed.
In an article penned by Spies he warned
all workingmen to thoroughly arm them
selves and be prepared to fight
the police, Pinkerton detectives and
military May 1st articles from the pen of
Spies were read, published at various times
down to Mav 4th. urging workingmen to
arm and hirht the police and military to me
death Maylst. The reading of the edito
rial signed by Spits and directed against
the justice ot the appelate court, threaten
ing him with death by dynamite owing to
his decision in favor of a railway company
as against injured employes, caused the
first wave of merriment among defendants
Without concluding the reading of these
articles the court adjourned until 2:00 p. m
When the state had finished its readings
Detective James Bonfield was placed on
the staud and identified some red flags and
banners which were brought into court as
those found in the Arbeiter Zeiting office.
They liore such inscriptions as "Every
Government is a Conspiracy against the
People." "Dick Oglesby, who murdered
three poor workingmen at Lemont, is not
in this procession, you can see him later."
"Boys, stick together," etc. Mayor Harri
son being in court the following inscription
on another banner created considerable
amusement and caused the mayor to smile.
It read: "Carter Harrison, who clubbed
our citizens during the carmen's strike, is
not in this procession, you can see him
Here the state rests said state attorney
Grinncll, and the court ordered the. defense
to proceed with its cae. After a whisper
ed consultation with his colleagues, attor
ney Zeisler rose and asked that the court
authorize the removal of the jury pending
the arguments in a motion which the de
fense wished to make.
Judge Gary could not sec the properiety
of breaking up the court on any such ac
count. 1 Ie knew of no precedent in this
Mr. Foster said he had never known such
a request to be refused, and the court re
plied that such a custom had been in vogue
in Scotland but lie knew of no reason why
the custom should lie imitated here.
I shall not remove the jury said the
Soloman then moved that the caw against
Oscar Neeb le dismissed. He said,
the evidence brought in has
leen mainly to establish what
is called conspiracy. None of the evidence
brought in, however, identities Neeb
with any of the overt acts charged against
the defendants in the case. The only w it
nos brought here to show that Neeb has
any connection with the case is that he dis
tributed some cirailars on the Monday be
fore the riot, and that a gun, pi.tol and
sword were found at his house. But none
of this evidence counects Neeb in any way
with the overt acts which are the bdis of
This theory was supported by eacli of the
attorneys for the defense in short speeches,
and when Judge Gary said, "I shall not
interfere with the jury in the eaf of Neeb."
(The motion leing that the judge instruct
the jury to bringln a verdict of" acquittal
in N ecu's case.)
Captain Black answered in an im
passionctl speech, which was, however,
simply a plea for Neeb on the strength of
the grounds riven for the motion "under
discussion. One of Captain Black s iun
trations was quit dramatic. Referring to
the revolutionary articles and circulars
presented bv the .state. Captain
pointed his Ions finger at Mayor Harrison,
who still occupied a seat near that of the
suite's attorney, and said: "The municipal
authorities knew of the publicationof these
articles and standing idly by as Neeb did
are just as culpable a be."
The court over-ruled the motito
Capt. Black then, a a matter of form, lie
saiu, raaue me auwv
motion in the ca-e
against all the other defendants except
Spies and Fisher. This was overruled and
an exception taken. Attomev Solomon
then rose and opened the case "for the do-
fense. First he complimented the "ury on
its patient enaurcnee 01 us trying s-Hnauon i
and asked that idi member give the same I
close attention U the evident produced by
the defense ast.y had 16 all that had
cide whether the state's attorney had ful
filled his promise in the opening ot the eae
for the stile. The state's attorney had
said that he woidd produce in court testi
mony proving who threw the bomb. Had
this been done. Mr. Solomon claimed it
had not. Proceeding to the charges against
them, Salomon said they were not charged
with anarchy or Hxriabsm, but as hown by
the indictments, the charge was the murder
of Matthias J. Deegan. The law, the at
torney said, did not provide any clause
which declared, or could be construed to
declare, that the defendants had committed
murder. . Mr. Solomon read from the evi
dence brought against the defendants did
not prove that thev were accessories to
murder. He then read from several author
ities to show what constituted the offense
of conspiracy. If the state had a case at all
it was in the charge of murder or conspira
cy and upon no other. He would read, he
said, from the reports as to the nature of
the evidence necessary to convict of mur
der or conspiracy. "I will read
these," said Solomon, "for the infor
mation of the jury and for the judge
as well. Continuing, 3Ir. Solomon said
that the defendants could be held for con
spiracy if it was proved that the meetings
in which they took part were held for the
purpose of killing the police. These de
fendants, he said, are not murderers nor
thieves or burglars. Thev are not crimi
nals, but are possessed of feelings of broad
humanity. They have not desired to ap
propriate the goods of Marshall Field to
their own use,"but all they have done has
been in support of a principle, which is the
eradication of a social wrong. They have
not advocated assassination or had recourse
to arms on account of personal feelings
against any man on earth, but all their ef
forts have been put forth with but the
single object in view of bettering the con
dition of their fellow men.
The defendants, the attorney declared,
had a right to preach their doctrine and
make converts. If the people wanted so
cialism ou anarchy they would have it.
The law could not "put down socialism any
more than it could suppress Republicanism
and destroy Democracy.
You fought in the rclcllion, said Mr
To put down slavery so that one should
not own another; these defendants believe
that there are white slaves and therefore
put forth their efforts toward their libera
tion. If thev use dynamite they use it for
that end only. We do not desire to go in
to the "evidence presented here
because we do not believe it
proves anything. We expect fully
to prove that none of these men have done
murder or have conspired to do murder.
We expect to prove that these men assem
bled at the Haymaiket on the night of the
4th of May to exercise the right of free
speech, tohold a peaceable meeting for the
purpose of discussing the interests of labor
ing men. We do not believe that any of
the defendants present once thought ot the
possibility of such a thing as a bomb Jieing
thrown at that meeting. Rut we see in the
action of the police an incredible oninuis,
we see in them a devlWi desijm. a fiendish
design, an intention to destroy every life in
that market. We expect to show you that
Mr. Fieldeu tired no shot at that meeting
and that he had not then and neer had a
revolver. We expect to show you that the
witness Gilner is a constitutional and
a professional liar. We don't lielieve that
in the minds of the jury the testimony of a
sworn witness is necessary to establish the
fact that Gilner's testimony is absolutely
valueless. We expect to prove that on the
night of the Haymarket meeting Mr.
Schwab did not speak to Spies, as has been
testified to, but. he left the meeting some
time before the explosion occurred. We
expect to show that Parsons and Fischer
left thSjUieeting early, and were seated in
ZefTs hall, perhaps drinking a glass of Iwer
when the bomb exploded. We shall prove
that Neeb was at home, and exject to show
that he had no knowledge of the meeting.
You are familiar with the movements of
Lingg. The evidence in no way connects
him with the throwing of the bomb, aud if
he made bombs he did no more than he had
a perfect right to do, and there is
no law prohibiting his having dynamite in
his house if he chose. We expect to show
that none of these defendants fired shots at
the Haymarket meeting, and that the first
shots w'ere fired by the police.
Mr. Solomon concluded reasserting his
belief in the absolute lack of evidence con,
necting the prisoners with the offense
charged against them, and asked the jury
that their verdict lc one of acquittal. At
the conclusion of Mr. Solomon's address
the court adiourned.
