Chicago, III., October 9. A? the
coocludicR stents of the great trial of
the anarchia's approach a c'ose, more
interest is taken, and th supurefs-'d
excitement becomes more ' n:a:ked.
linndieils of people wendtd their way
toward the Criminal Court building,
each rose def-irous of listening to tUe
roccluaion of the suet en of ArnrehiBt
PtvHons, and wiih tbe expetUtiou of
hearing lh3 de&th SJLttcce pro
rjcuuetd. Parsons reanmf d tu speech ss scot
a) court whs opened. He creattd
something; of a Benta:ior by declaring
ia a very 'rmatic ard impressive
manner that they had positive proof
that tha bomb which created gucli de
struction at the hy market was
thrown by aa fgent 01 the New York
capitalists end luon&rchiu'e, who sent
the man cm heie to take ihs means
of breaking tbe eibt hour movement.
As proof of bis assertions that tbeie
was a grfat c napiiacy on the part of
capital apair.Bt lator, Pr'oris quo ed
the FxpreFS'ocB of tbfee Senators on
the floor of t!ie United Sta'es Ssra e,
in wnich a'l agreed on the following
theory: Tberu is a c.nspiracy to iu
creaae tt;e value of the d-.lUr and dd
crease the valu cf labor tlie world
over. Parsons tliimed gain that he
and his collt agues were the vicuna of
this coiitpirtcy. Ha aeked: What
ara tbe leal fic'B of tha hay market
tragedy, your Honor? Mayor Usr
riton nascmcd to be published his
opinion as to tbe mutter of conjee ure
in the New York World, which was
copied iu'o the Tribune cf th s city
and in vthiih he (aid: I do not be
lieve that tht ra vas any intent on the
uart cf Saies nr.d those men to have
bombs thro? n at the hay market. If
they had, hy vrt-s there hut cn
throwo? It waa as eaty t3 have btd
a dozen or fif;j to have them thrown
in all parB of the city, aa
o throw one. And mnin.
If it was intended to throw bombs
that eight the lesdaos would not have
been there at all, tur. in my rpinion,
like coxmanders-in-chief, wculd have
been in a sire p ace. Now, it can t be
shown thst fierewas any intention on
tbe part of ihot-e individuals to have
that act perpetrated at that articular
mcet ng. Now, your llot or, this ia
the Mayor cf Chu-ago. He is a sensi
ble man; he its in a position to know
what he is talking about; he ouitht to
be able to form an icta ligent opinion,
and cne that in worthy cf n ppect. Ha
kDOWs more about thia thing than toe
jury. I expect that the Major knows
more about the meihous by whicn
this evidence and this ttstimony was
manufactured. Your Hrnor, there is
too much at stake to tike anything
far granted. Mayor Hair son thinks
to. and vour Honor, too. should not
destroy eeven lives as a species of
light amusement. Parsons ma'r.tained
that the Am ricau group wero justinad
in heatiog anus; tuat the consti utiorj
gave them thnt right. But that ques
tion was not rased fo far ts
Parsons was concerned. Ii was
not a.ught to prove that fee was
vio'aticg tbe Ikw vvhi'e a member cf
this organiaition. Judge McAlis'er
had held that the police could not in
vade their meetings without legal pro
cess. But the police, in 1877. d d
break into the Turner Hall on Twelfth
street during a meeting cf the form
ture workers wtiiuh was being held
ana killed cne mao. and Judge Mc
Alistersaid that if every policsioian in
the crowdas tilled tuose paricipat
ine in tbe'mer-ting could not be held
iesponsible. Were Persons and bis
friends, then, to be blamed because
they followed Judee McAlistm's ad
vice as contained in his decision,
which meant that the American group
could ber arms? Why, then, ws
this construed as illegal when an emi
nent judge (aid it was ac ccrdini! to
constitutional law ? About tin time
Parsons tslted to be allowed a recess,
promising to finish up this evening.
'1'he reauctt was denied.
Parsons ceased sneaking at 3:15
o'clcck p.m. end Judge Gary tben
sentenced the ecsven anarchists to be
