tbo others made comment. A labor repre
sentative from Cleveland, who was sitting
with them, leaned bis head on his hand,
while tears rolled down bis cbeek, L. S.
Oliver and tbo threo Spies brothers Christ,
Ferdinand, and Ernst wcro on their way
to the governor's mansion when thoy wero
met by some reporters, who broko to them
the dows that their brother mast perish.
Seen In tho uncertain gaslight tholr facos
looked pitiful, Tho expressions of pain
that passed over the countenances of tho
young men was sad In tho extrcmo. Tears
rolled from their eyes, and, better thin
words could tell it, their anguish was pie
tured in their tear-Ailed eyes andqulvor
tng lips. L. S. Oliver said : "1 have done
my best, and I must now attend to my
family and business "
Crowds surrounded tbo bulletins which
were posted at the newspaper ofllces. The
general verdict Is that the governor ex
tended all the clemency bo could do Under
tbo circumstances. Some are disposed to
rail at what tbey term the governor's soft
bcortedness, but tbo majority considered tho
Justice ot the result Geo. Schilling, wired
at once to Capt. Black and tho Amnosty
Association oflloe. Gov. Oglesby wis In
terviewed by u reporter tor the United
Press, but refused to talk on the decision,
euylng I, hla opinion fully covered all that
could be said.
Tho final decree concerning tho doomed
anarchists was telegraphed to Sheriff Mat
eon by tho governor at 5 o'clock this after
noon. The formal decision bearing tbo
creat seal ot the state was taken to Chicago
to-night on the 0 o'clock train by the gov
ernor's son and private secretary, Robert
Oglesby, who was 'mot at the depot by
Sheriff JIateon, who will formally rocolvo

tho warrant of the stato to executo Flsekor,
Knee), Parsons, and Spies.
Tho governor seemed very much aftectod
by the adverse decision In regard to tho
men which ho felt himself compelled to
glvo. Ills good-natuud face, usually
earning with smiles, bore a sorrowful look
of mingled firmness and pity; to sign tho
death writ of those men bad evidently cost
him many a mental strugsrle, an I often his
benevolent heart must bavo hestUtod be
tween the soft pleadings of pltv and mercy
and the cold demands of unrolentlog Jus
tice. That tho drclston was the last roiult
of tho most careful, thoughtful, and oven
fravcrful consideration on tho part ot
Mellaril J, Oglesby cannot bo doubted.
Tho following Is tho comploto text ot tho
governor's opinion In the case.

George Schilling received a dispatch from
Capt. Black this evening to the effect that
the bomb thrower hod been located la New

respite of a few days till Investigation could

that he would arrive In Springfield at 4:15

Pntliotlo Scenes at the Jail (Then the
News Was Received.
CnioAao, Nov. 10. When tho nows of
tho commutation ot tho sentence of Flolden
and Schwab was received at the Jail thore
was an extraordinary scene ot activity. Tho
news was sent to the relatives of all tho
condemned men, and In a short tlmo thoy
began to arrlvo at the Jail, Tho first of the
women to come was Mrs. Schwab. Soon
after Scwab was brought from his cell to
the main ofDco. His wife quickly advanced
to him. and, throwing her arms about his
neck, burst Into tears. Schwab returned
theembraco In a calm mannor, and soon
the two were chatting quietly together.
After this Spies and Fischer wero brought
from their cells and taken to tbo jail
library. Engel was brought to tho private
oflleoof Jlr. Kolz. This was dono for the
purpose of allowing tbo relatives to take
their last Interviews.
The first one ot the women to arrlvo after
Mrs. Schwab was Miss Engel, tho daughter
Ot the condemned anarchist. When tho
two met in tho private ofllco thero was an
outburst of grief which It is Impossible to
describe. Father and daughter clung to
each other and sobbod convulsively. Their
conversation was in German, and listened
to only by Deputy Oleson. Then came Mrs.
Spies, tho motber of August, Sho had
been waiting outsldo for an boar and a half,
Her sobs could be heard through the corri
dors ot the building. She did not stay long
In the library with her eon; and on her exit
from the Jail Mrs. Fischer was admitted.
She went into tho library and ber lamenta
tions were beard above tbo tramp of the
deputies who swarmed about tbo place.
But the crownlne seeno ot all was the visit
of Nina Van Zandt, the proxy wife ot Spies.
Sho was conducted to the library by Deputy
Oleson. As she walked through
the main ofllco fehs betrayed uo
emotion. The moment sho saw
August, however, how completely changed
ber demeanor. Thero was Q look, then a
gasp, and In a trice the lovers were in each
other's arms. A bevy of curious reporters
and officers, crowded up to the door of. tho
library, but it was quickly shut by the
deputy. The Interview between the pris
oner and bis faithful devotee lasted nearly
bait an hour. In bait an hour the lovers
had Darted, and tho excitement ot tho en
trance of Nina bad passed. A rumor was
started to the effect that Schwab, and
Flelden would bo removed to Jollet at 0,30
o'clock, but Jailer Folz declared that be
had no orders to that effect.
Coroner Henry L. Hertz was notified ot
the death ot Llngg early tn'the day. Ue
acted with great deliberation, and It was
not until almost -liAOp.-m. that he started
out to hunt up a Jury. When tho jury had
been selected tbey went to tbo jail and
viewed the remains ot Llngg, and then ad
journed till next Wednesday.
The sheriff has decided to take Schwab
and Flelden to the penitentiary 'at once.
Tbey will bo removed to Jollet to-night,
strongly cuarded by a "force of deputy
sheriffs. This action Was decided on by
Sheriff Matson as soon as the governor's
commutation was recelvod.
New Youk, Nov, 10. Tho Vrelheit to
day publishes a farewell letter from Adolph
Fischer, dated Cook county jail, Nov. 5, to
tho anarchist, John Most. He glories In
the cause and saysi "We must show our
enemies that tbo anarchists are ready and
willing to die for the cause. I have in
dorsed and pratssd our true principles and
am ready to go to the scaffold tor them,"

Chicago, Nov, 10 Louis Lings:, tbo

Ing'ln his cell In the county Jail,
All diiy jtstcrday It was thought that
Llngg acted differently from usual, Tues
day right ha gavo out his "farewell ad

l'arsons's old paper. In It he rcctlod at
length his grievances and closel its fol

friends ana comrades, and with final wishes
for the Ir prosperity, I close. In view of tho cer

Yesterday,' when one of the guards told
h'm that tho papcrshad publlshod bis letter'
to D. D. Lum, tbo young bomb manufac-l
tarer, bo expressed a strong dcslro to "road

Llngg slowly plodded through the transla-l
tlon, Englenart speaks derm an, and when
appealed to gavo Llngg tho meaning of
English words In German.
Tbo doomed man said tho totter was an
admirable translation ot tho original.
Turning to another pago ot' tho paper his
cyo caught tho lino, "Llugg will surely
Calling Englehart, bo asked: "What Is
tho meaning of this word s-u-r-e-1-y In
Englehart told him, and Llngg laugh
ingly observed: "So; so, 1 wilt s u-r-e 1-y
baDg." Ills mannor was such that Engle-i
hart joined In tbo laugb. "Say," tho'
blonde-haired young anarchist callod to a
reporter, "did you ceo. my Maedschen?"
He was told that Eda Mueller had not been
seen, and bis noxt query was: "lias my
setiats (Sweetheart), gone to Bprlngllold?"
Immediately after the explosion Deputy
O'Nell rushed Into Llngg's cell, which was
completely enveloped in smoke. Tbore ho
found the young anarchist lying on his
back with sreat boles In bis head, from
which the blood was rushing in torrents.
He was at once carried into tho Jail ofUco
and placed on u table. Ho was still
breathing faintly, and whllo Dr. Gray was
examining btm ho coughed slightly and tho
blood poured forth again from his terrible
wounds and from his mouth and noso.
After a while Jailer Folz mado an exam
ination of the coll. On the floor he found
tbo shell of u fulminating case. Tho sheriff
said there bad undoubtedly been dynamite
In it. The supposition that the man put
tbo shell tn bis mouth and deliberately ap
plied the candle flame is undoubtedly cor
rect. Tho explosion was terrtQc. It startled
tho ofltclals, who thought it was a bomb,
the noise was so great. The shell was oo
small as to have allowed tbo smuggling of
it Into the jail without troublo.
At 10,15 Dr. Gray mado a fnrtber exam
ination and found that the tissues ot the
throat, the neck, and tho front ot the law
bad been torn away. He administered
stimulants, but tbey failed to arouse tbo
Att'y. Hunt appeared beforo Judge Baker
at lu o'cioce anu mauo a tormai application
for a writ In Llngg's case and it was re
fused. How the dynamite was smuggled' Into
the cell Is not known, but It Is eonerallv
believed there la a traitor among the death
watch who gavo btm tbo dynamite and tho
can. This is the theory at tho sheriff's

searched, and nothing was found.
Tho ex-cdltor of tho Alarm shivered with
excitement, fear, and curiosity. His faco
was white, and his eyes looked ready to
start from their sockets. Ho was In bis
ehlrt and trousers, and a wido felt hat
shaded his faco. He looked as it bo would
bavo given worlds to know what had hap-

It Is believed bysomoof the reporters

searched ho completely broke down, and
cried liko a child.
Meanwhile Turnkey O'Nell had discov
ered tbo little agent which bad sorvod Llngg
to accomplish bis terrible work. It was a
small fulminating cap a little over an inch
long. It bad been filled with f ulmluato ot
mercury, and the small fuse which Is
usually attached to tbeso instruments of
death Lad been touched off ny Llngg at tho
tlmo tho reporter thought he was lighting
a cigar. When L'ngg eommtttod the deed
bo was lying on bis face on his cot. After
tbo affair, when bis coll was searched, an
other candle was found, At the top ot It,
barely concealed by the ends ot tho wick, a
second fulminating cap was found, so it Is
supposed that Llngg's attempted suicide
was committed with ono similarly bidden.
Tho candles wero furnished by tho Jail, so
that the caps must havo been put in by
Llngg's act to-day was In keeping with
bis past life. In 1SS2 be was forced to leave
bis native town In Germany, After a good
deal of wandering about Germany he
finally landed In Switzerland. There ho
continued to fight tho "blues," as tho social
democrats aro called by the red followors
ot Most. It was then that tho Ootial
Damokral, tbe official organ ot tho German
socialists, published a notice declaring
Llngg to be an informer and spy ot tho
German government. In 1885 ho came to
America. In Now York bo stayed only a
few davs. and then nroceeded farther west
to Chicago. Here bo Joined tbe North Side
group of the Internationals, and soon be
gan tbe manufacture ot tbo bombs,
ono of which was used at the
Haymarket. When two policemen went
to arrest him tho next day ono
of them entered bis room while the other
stayed outsldo the house. The latter soon
besrd shouts for help, and running into
Llngg's room, found that tho anarchist bad
thrown bis partner on tho floor, and was
only prevented from shooting him by the
policeman who had a grip on the revolver
wnicn unirc was enueavoring to use. i uo
second ofllcor, after a desperate struggle,
succeeded In placing tbo "come-alongs" on
his -Wrist. Placing a pistol to his head,
the policeman ordered blm to come on, bnt
Llngg refused to move and said: "Shoot
me, shoot me."
Llngg died at 2.45. Twenty minutes be
fore that time his heart began to fall, and
it was plain to Dr. Moyor that he-was dying.
Up to within flvo minutes ot his death he
was conscious and then be began to fall
rapidly. Two minutes before the fatal mo
ment nis eyes opened, he cast a look around
him, his nead drooped, and that was tbe
last sign of life manifested. Dr. Moyer
Immediately telephoned 'tor tbo coroner.
The Inquest will be held this evening.
Tbo explosion In Llngg'a cell created a
decided sensation In tbo Jail. All tbe
prisoners, over two hundred, hoard tho re
port. Jailer Folz was tbo ono who carried
tbe news that Llngg had used such deadly
means to make uway with himself to tho
other anarchists. Tbe Jailer approached
l'arsons cell. "Llngg baa killed blmsolf,"
eaia Air. foiz,
"Great God, Is that sot" exclaimed Far
sons. "Yes, Its a fact," was tho roolv.
"Well, my God," exclaimed l'arsons, "I
wish I bad somo dynamite myself. I would
kill myself only too quickly."
August Bplea was then Informed nt the
tragedy. "I expected nothing elso," said
Spies, quietly. "Ever since tlio finding ot

A Supposed Combination to lllow Up

Chicago, Nov. 10. Tho lake pollco aro
greatly exorcised over what they bollevo to
be an attempt to tako the ltfo ot James
Brayton, ono of tho Jury that convicted
the anarchists. Mr. Drayton lives at Sixty
third and Lako streets. Yestorday threo
or four men made application to rant a
room on State street, about two blocks
from Mr. Brayton's residence, representing
that tbey wcro musicians. Tho room was
rented to them, and they said tbey would
move in during tho afternoon. To-day a
saloon keeper, whoso name tho polleo re

that bo bad seen tbo alleged musicians
and that ho knew ono of them to bo a red

the parly wero anarchist who proposed to

they perfected their plans to blow up Mr.
Brayton's residence. Tno captain ot

THE NEW YOllIC l'AHADE.
A Largo Procession Hut No Disturb
ance of Any Kind.
New Yonic, Nov. 10. To-night's parade
ot r oclallsts, Intended as a protest against
the banging of the Chicago anarchists, was
a peaceable affair. About 5,000 men
turned out. Two hundred policemen ac
companied tho procession, and the pollco
reserves wcro held In readlnoss at
tho various etatlou bouses lu caso ot
troublo. Tbo procession was accom
panied by three bands of music
with raufllcd drums, who played the "Mar
seillaise." Many red flags draped with
black were carried. Tbe line ot march was
down Broadway to Vcsey street, and
thence through l'ark ltow and Bowery to
Union square, whero a meeting was held,
at which resolutions condemning the exe
cution of tho condemned men wero passed.
Ilcrr Most and other noted anarchists wero
to have spoken at the meeting, but this part
of tbo programme was abandoned. The
pollco think that if there bad been any fiery
speeches thero might bavo been trouble.
Thero wcro a few black flags carried as
well as red ones, and somo transparencies,
bearing such mottoes as "Ye sons ot toil
awako to glory." "Gallows against lib
erty." "liowaro tbo Insurrection." "Al-
Ions Enfants do la I'atrlc," Ac. Tbo dead
march lu Saul alternated with tbo Mar
collates hymn from tbe bands. The pollco
escort did not march directly with tho pro
cession. Ono detachment moved through
parallel streets Just within sight whllo
another followed quite a distance behind
on Broadway, Tho Idea ot the authorities
seemed to be to avoid all appearance ot
obtruding upon tbo paradcrs. Tho dem
onstration was distinctively ono ot silent
protest. Tbo mournful music and tho ab
sence ot all shouting or disorder produced
an unlqtio effect. When the procession
reached tho city hall park It formed on tho
plaza before tho hall and thon massed
silently for a while until the order was
given to movo on. A strong reserve force ot
pollco were distributed in the neighboring
basements and cellars, and thoy looked out
at tho singular gathering with curiojlty and
somo apprehension Not the slightest dis
turbance, howovor, occurred.
