THE ANAKCIIIST CASE.
Affidavits by "Witnesses and Jurors
Repudiated by Allcged'Affiants.
Chicago, Oct. 1. Hearing of the mo
tion for a new trial in the case of the seven
condemned anarchists in the Hayniafkct
slaughter commenced before Judge Gary
in the criminal court this morning. Cap
tain Black, on behalf of the condemned
men, offered an affidavit which declares
that official bailiff Henry L. iiice, who
summoned nearly all the panel from which
the jury was obtained, made "a remark to a
merchant named Favor, on "Wabash
avenue, to the effect that he knew his busi
ness and was selecting men who Avould
hang the anarchists. The attorney asked
that Mr. Favor and a man named Stevens
bo smmoncd in court and questioned us to
the alleged remark.
The Mate's attorney expressed surprise
that counsel for the defense .should make
Mich allegations without first informing
him of their purpose to attack an officer of
The court replied to Capt. Black that
there was no date attached to the affidavit.
The court also said there was no precedent
for taking oral proceedings at this stage of
proceedings; he overruled the motion to
summon the persons named.
The counsel for the prisoners then read
the motion for a new trial, which has al
ready been printed. This embodied affi
davit's by T. J. Morgan to the effect that
lie had heard juror Denkeifdeelaie shortly
after the llaymarket meeting that the
whole crowd "of anarchists ought to be
hanged. An affidavit by Michael Cull was
also read, to the effect 'that juror Adams
had expressed himself to affiant in about
the same language.
An affidavit by E. A. Stevens was also
read which stated that Favor, a merchant,
had told him that Bice, the deputy, had
said that the anarchists would hang sure
The affidavits of A. P. Love and Orrin
Blossom were then read declaring that lliey
had seen witness Gilmer in a saloon ouVau
Buren street before and after the bomb
throwing. This affidavit was to impeach
Gilmer, who swore he saw Schnabel throw
The affidavit of the Indianapolis saloon
keeper, J. P. Dfluce, was then lead, citing
the fact of the presence of a mj'stcrious
stranger in his place a few days before the
bomb throwing who intimated that trouble
would occur in Chicago.
Zeisler, one of defendant's counsel, made
affidavits that juror Cole had taken notes
during the tiial, which was contrary to
The prisoners were in ccnirt during the
forenoon. They all showed the effect of
their imprisonment. Spies, Schwab and
Fischer especially had very white faces.
Capt. Black read to the court extracts
fromstate's attorney Grinuell's closing ad
dress to the jury, criticizing what he turned
the objectionable and unlawful portions
Assistant Stale's Attorney Walker read
several affidavits on behalf of the pioaecti
tion which were filed this morning in reply
to thoc previously presented by the
attorneys for the defendants.
Capt J no. Carney, chief of thcJEvansion
police, deposed that Michael Culi of Evans
ron who in his affidavit alleged that juror
Geo. "W. Adams told him prior to the trial
that the defendants all ought to hang and
that they a ere beggars in this country who
ought to be shot like dogs, h a worthless
character, unworthy of belief.
The affidavit of juror Adams is also
given. It simply denies making the re
marks attributed to him within the hearing
of Michael Cull.
Juror Denker deuied saying in the pres
ence of Thos. J. Morgan that Spies and the
rest ought to hang, but admits that he had
an opinion formed before the trial though
lie had never expressed it.
Albert P. Lane and Orrhi S. Blossom,
painters, furnished affidavits to the state's
attorney this morning repudiating the
sworn " statements as given by
them by S. If. Zeisler regarding the
witness Gilmer and adding that they had
been paid for Wearing to the same out of
a $90 check drawn on the International
bank bv Mers. Soloman & Zeisler in f.ivoi
of Louis L. Smith. They slated that they
received $J50 each out of the said check.
Mr. Zeisler said that his firm gave Smith
a check in payment for services as a pri
vate detective'in looking up Gilmer's -ft here
abouts on the fatal night, but not for the
purpose of buying testimony.
Capt. Black urged the court to grant a
postponement of arguments on the motion
when all the affidavits had been read and
put in as part of record, but Judge Gary
declined to grant it. Finally he adjourned
court till 2 p. m.f at which time he said he
would give his decision on the matter of
At 2 p. m. Judge Gary aked for tint
part of the record referring to the examina
tion of Denker as a juror. Mr. Soloman
handed him the record which he proceeded
to look over for his own satisfaction.
Does your honor grant us further time
to prepare affidavits regarding Cull's ropu
tation? asked Capt. Black.
i I see no reason for granting lurther time
j for filing an affidavit en that subject, said
I the court.
After a good deal of talk about produc
ing more contradictory affidavit?. Captain
Black asked whether "the argument could
1 not iro over till nest Tuesday.
1 Twill not consent to that, the lateV at
i The court refused to grant the ccn&ra-
t ancc and Black took an exception.
j The captain made aa argument saying
j he had a right to answer the impeaching
itituil:i Us filed by the state's attorney and
he proposed to secure the bencni. of 'fast
I right in the higher court. Captain Blirii
then began the opening argument for a
j new trial.
i lie devoted himself particularly lo the
j argument for tue state made by ths states
attorneys which he claims was improper
and calculated to leave a wrong impression
on the minds of the jury. ile claimed
that Mr. Grinnell had told'thc jury tliat the
police had discovered bombs in the city of
Chicago sufficient to destroy it, and that he
believed thec bombs were aimed at the
lives of the jurors. He also objected to
the statement made in the presence of the
jury that the counsel for the defense had
admitted that Mr. Ingalls' argument was
unanswerable, or as Capt. Black claimed,
had produced an impression upon the jury
prejudicial to his clients.
The counsel during the course of his
speech was rebuked by the court in one in
stance for making a wrong statement re
specting a ruling made by the court.
Capt. Black dwelt at length on two
points: First, that the state's attorney in
troduced into his closing argument sub
stantive matter not referred to previously
during the trial. Second, that the evidence
submitted by the prosecution was defective
in failing to" prove who the principal was.
Capt. Black held that the evidence to be
sufficient against the accessories should
have been so unmistakable against the prin
cipal as to secure his conviction had he
been present in court.
The senior counsel for the anarchists had
not concluded when the court adjourned.
Further hearing was deferred until Mon
day. Jell" Davis' Denial,
Bai-timoki:, Oct. 1. The Sun has- a
long letter written by Jefferson Davis from
Bouvior, Miss., on the 3d to Col. J. T.
Scharf of Baltimore, replying to Gen. W.
T. Sherman's so-called report to the war
department, and which the United States
Senate ordered to be printed as "Ex. doc.
No. 35, Forty-eighth congress, second ses
sion." Mr. Davis Fays: A continuing sense of
the great injustice done to me and to the
people I represented by the senate making
thenialicious assault ot General Sherman
a public document and giving to his slan
der the importance which' necessarily at
taches to an executive communication to
the senate, has recently caused the request
for a reply by me lo be pressed with very
great earnestness. For this reason I have
decided to furnish my reply to'ou for pub
lication. Mr- Davis then proceeds at great length
to dispute and deny the charges brought
against him by Geh. Sherman in which he
declares he did all in his power to prevent
the war and did not se2k the post of chief
executive. He says: lor all the acts of
mv public life as president of the Bonfcder-
ate States I am responsible at the bar of
history and must accept her verdict which
I shall do without the least apprehension
that it will be s ived trom truth by the
malicious falsehoods of Gen. Sherman,
even when stamped as an "ex doc." by the
United States senate.
The chief statement that Mr. Davis ob
jects to is that made by Gen. Sherman in
18SI before the Blair post, G. A. R., that
he (Sherman) had a letter in Davis' writing
to the effect that Davis would turn Lee's
army against any state that might attempt
to secede from the Southern Confederaev.
As Well Sow as Later.
Ciiicvgo, Oct. 1. The statement is pub
lished this afternoon tliat a great lockout
at the stock j-ards has been decide! upon
sometime during this month, when "the
packing houses will aldose down and re
main closed until the question of eight or
ten hours is settled. One of the large pack
ers said this morning: Trouble, of course,
is expected; it will be . loijg light but we
can't run on eight hours, with other houses
around us running on ten hours; so trouble
might as well come nil at once as to drag
along until we are compelled to shut down
It is likely that several of the houses
will start up in a small way on the ten
hours schedule. The houses will shut
down one after another for repairs and
when they open it. will be on the ten-hours'
time or not all. This time of year it is cus
tomary for all houses which have been run
ning all summer to .shut down for repairs.
This October, however, the shut down will
be .significant; it will afford houses oppor
tunity to throw no men on lis if the light
ing house-; are all closed. Those who ap
ply for work can go to work at ten hours
or they can stay out.
Meanwhile all hou .s at Kansas. City,
Omaha, Milwaukee, Springfield, St. Louis
and -cLewherc will be running day and
night. The fact of the lock out is aulhoii
tivc; so is the fact that packers are all wait
ing to get here. There is 110 doubt at all
about there being concert of action. Yet
packers are reticent; some of them deny the
fact. There is however, no doubt
that the lockout is agreed to. Preparations
are going forward lo make a long and stub
born light for the ten hour question.
I5y the great lockout 20,000 people u ill
be deprived of employment. It is expected
they will offer stubborn resistance, and it is
not thought itnprobahlo the light will lead
Chicago, Oct. 1. The Times tomorrow
will say: The southwestern railroad pool
is threatened in a rather unexpected quar
ter. It is learned that the Milwaukee and
St. Paul have been shipping large quanti
ties of freight to 3CansisCily through
Council Bluffs and "I.i. the Union Pacific,
and the new route of the latter thrcugL
Marysville. This was opened about a
month ago and gives the Union PaciGc a
fair through line between Omaha and Kan
sas City. Neither of the roads are parties
to the southwestern pool and are at liberty
to make such rates as may by agreed upon
between them i it!vut reference to the tar
iff governing the southwestern pool. The
Kansas City, St. Joseph and Council
Bluffs roads was closed up to the I-Corlir-wcfclern
road inc time ag by a subsidy
granted it from the pool lines and the
established arbitrators barrel out all traffic
from tli' 1 northwest wliiIi did not Jake
The new route L somewhat circuitous,
but it N good enough freight purposes. Its
main bearing r.ill lib upon the lumber traf-
nc, winch can get into Kansas through uns
gateway, and unless the usual remedy h
applied' the southwestern lumber pool will
be in considerable danger. It is believed,
however, that the Union Pacitlc will listen
to reason, accept a subsidy and maintain
pool rates. j-

to Bradslreet's point to a volume of general
trade quiet equal to that reported "in late
weeks with a satisfactory inquiry and de
mand. The movement bf staplo goods is
increasing in the southwest aud west, while
in Kauris the demand is reported to be
better than in a corresponding period in
any preceding year.
General trade is quiet nt San Francisco,
and at New Orleans it has Ic -n checked,
owing to the approach of theclocof the
month, as well as to iho scar? produced by
the prediction of :i earthquake.
The bank clearing at thirty citie-J, wired
to Bnalstreot's, point to an unmistakably
full volume of commercial transactions,
speculative and otherwise, exceeding in tin
aggregate late exhibits. The week's total
is A9yt.GCO,:iG0, as compared with $C8,

The domestic iron trade continues active

about 1 1-10 cents higher per pound.
Anthracite coal 's fairly active at the or

for lower prices.
