Had Stabbed Cluef Shippy and Shot
His Son?Stangcr Enters Home
of Chief Shippy in Cliieago
and Attempts to Assassinato
Chief of Police Ceorgo M. Shippy,
of Chicago, his son Harry and his
'driver, James Foley, were wounded
by an Anarchist who attempted to
assassinate Mie police official in tin:
hall of the la tier's residence, ,'M Lincoln
Court, shortly after <> o'clock
Monday morning, The desperate
stiuggle, in which Mrs. Sliippv and
her daughter, Georgictta, joined was
terminated when (lie chief drew his
own revolver and killed his assailant.
Attempts to identify the dead man
have thus far resulted in failure.
The attack is believed to have been
resn^ ?f a conspiracy to harm officials
who have been active in suppressing
manifestations of anarchy in
that, community. Oiher city officials
are said to have been fltreaiened and
ft police spy, who recognized the
corpse of the man who invaded Shippy
's home as flint of a person who
regularly attended anarchists' meetJugs,
asserted Mini the man was chosen
by lot to do a way with not only
the chief of police, but Mayor Busse
as well. The ramifications of :.he plot
are said to extend to other cities, and
to be closely connected with the killing
of the l?ev. Leo Heinriclis, a Roman
Catholic priest, who was shot
down at I lie altar of his church in
Harry Shippy was shot through the
breast twice and was probably fatally
wounded, lfis father was stabbed
in the arm, wlul'e l^oley received a
bullet in the wrist. Mrs. Shippy was
kicked by tiro desperado, but her injuries
Following the attack squads of police
were sent into the Tlalinn and
Ghetto quarters of the city. Places
known as headquarters of secret societies
suspected of anarchistic tendencies
were raided and a score or
more arrests were made.
^ That the. allemipt to kill Chief
Shippy resulted in failure was du\s
largely to the policeman's quickness
in anticipating the purpose of his
visitor's presence. The man had
twice called at. the bouse, and asked
for the chief, and was told that. Mr.
Shippy was nt work, and called again
Monday morning, when a servant informed
him that lire chief eoul.l not
be seen before 0 o'clock. When he
rang the door bell as Ihe latter hour
the chief himself answered the call.
"As I opened the door," said
Chief Shippy, later, "the man raised
'nis hat and I allowed him lo stop into
the hallway. He handed me an envelope.
1 glanced at it and then the
thought struck live that the man was
up to some wrong. lie looked like an
anarchist. I grabbed bis arms and
called lo my wife, who was in another
room. When she ran into Ihe
hallway 1 snid: "M'oMier. see if this
man has a revolver." She felt, in owe
of his pockets and snid that lie bad.
"I tried to hold liiin with one band
and draw my revolver with the other
but he jerked away and fell against
the door. 1 caught him again and
while we were struggling my son, who
was lip-stairs, started |o my aid. He
was only a lew steps I roni the bottom
of Ihe stairs when (lie man freed
one hand, drew his revolver and fired
two shots at 1 larry. Then Foley,
who had been summoned by my
daughter, stepped into the hall anil
the man shot him. The man kicked
my wife to one side, and by this time
I had got my own revolver, and both
Foley and I opened fire. At my first
shot, which si tuck him in tire head,
be fell, but 1 tired three more, onu
into his head and two into his body,
two of Foley's shot's struck the
Foley and Harry Shippy were taken
to a hospital.
The body of tdie anarchist was removed
to a morgue. A search of the
corpse failed lo reveal any marks by
which it might be identified.
In a pocket of die mail's coat, howler,
the police discovered a small
box of lozenges, (he package bearing
a label inscribed: "Trowbridge Con^
fed ionery Company, Meadeville,
Pa." The lozenges were sent to a
chemist, tor analysis, the police being
of the opinion that they might contain
posion with which it was the
man's intention to commit suicide if
The police are confirmed in the belief
that, the attaclv on their chief was
due to an anarchist's plot. The idea
that the man may have had a personal
grievance against the official because
of an arrest or some similar affair,
was given up when defectives of
tn'e department failed to recognize the
corpse as that of any known criminal.
I'wo members of the force asserted
that they had seen flic man at
a mooting of anarchists about ten
Both (lie cliiof ami Mrs. Shippy assert
ilia I Hi.; formers life was saved
by Die appearance of their'son. The
young man who is IS years old is a
student at a military academy in Culver,
Ind. Ho was at home because
of illness and hastened to his father's
aid when he heard the struggle
in tho hall.
"1 must have been shot and killed
if the boy had not come to my assistance,"
said the cliiof. "Mlothor was
too terrified to do anything. She was
helpless as soon as she felt the revolver
in tlie man's pocket."
One of the first places raided by the
police after the. shooting was the
headquarters of a society known as
the " Kdclstadt Group," at 427 Union
street. Pictures of Iferr Most and
other anarchists were confiscated, as
were also thousand hand bills announcing
a series of meetings at
which Knima Goldman was scheduled
to speak. One of these meetings was
announced for March (i and another
for March 0. A library a short distance
away was also invaded by the
police, and several hundred volumes
and pamphlets dealing with anarch- ,
ism were searched.
FOR THE TRIPLETS.
Some time ago an article appeared 1
in this paper in reference to the fact
that C. R. Ballington who lives near
Gilbert in Lexington county was the '
father of three children horn to Mrs. '
Ballington in January and that they \
had had born to them the year before
twins. li was also stated that J.
A. Lewis who lives near the place of
Mr. Ballinglon had been here solicit- |
ing money to aid in supporting the j
Mr. Ballington was here this week
and stated that while lie was a poor
man he was able to support the children
and that lie had not received any
of the money that Lewis was said to
have h.vii collecting. Mi Ballington ,
learned here that Lewis had collected
a lew dollars from different parties,
but none of this money had been
turned over to the father of tiio five
Yesterday Lewis was in the city
and stated that he had been away 1
from this part of the country for
about three weeks and did not know
anything of the reports that had been
g..1ieu out until his return to the city
yesterday. Then he went to Ballington
and the matter was straightened
out as a signed statement shows. The
statement that Mr. Lewis presents is
"Gilbert, S. 0., March 2, 1908.
"Received of John A. Lewis $(i.2f),
amount in full collected by him in Columbia,
S. C. This money was collectod
through the kindness of Mr.
(Signed) ''0. Klird Ballington,
"Father of Triplets and Twins.
"Lexington Coutily, Gilbert, S. C.
"'Signed in presence of .1. Krvc,
March 2. IMS."
This seems to settle the matter all
right. Mr. Lewis stated that lie. had
no idea that it would be thought that
he had gone off with (lie money. The
statement from Ballington brought
here by Lewis shows that the money
was collected with the best intentions.
Tho Ounce of Prevention.
To stop a leak in time often saves
a disastrous flood, with consequent
loss and damage. A bad cold, unless
promptly treated, may grow into a
stubborn catarrh of Mve head, throat,
stomach or bowels, threatening dire
disaster any moment. No one is truly
at themselves with a catarrhal affection
of the mucous membrane at
any stage, and it is pure recklessness
to allow such conditions to continue.
The ounce of prevention or the absolute
cure for any case, of catarrh
is found in a remedy known as Andes'
Great Prescription. Since it was
first, introduced thousands of bottles
have been distributed by W. 10. Pelham
and Son. and in no instance ha<
a failure to cure been reported. Besides
catarrh, this wonderful remedy
cnri's all blood disorders, rheumatism
and snob ordinary ills as indigestion,
dyspepsia, torpid liver, biliousness,
constipation and nervousness like magic.
Ask for examples of what it has
done for others.
ft will cost you $1 per bottle, three
tor $2.;)0, or six for $">.00. If six
bottles don't perform a cure in your
case, where directions are followed
for above diseases, you can have your
money back. What fairer proposition
can be asked?
The open formula of Andes' Great
Prescription is printed on every
package and label. Tt's a good one.
There are no secrets to hide. It does
its work speedily and permanently.
I bat's why physicians are recommending
it in their family practice,
They know no better remedy.
