Chicago, Nov. 8. No visitors were al
lowed in tho jail yesterday morning, aud
even reporters were excluded. Sheriff Mat
son decidod to search the Anarchists' noils,
and wanted no outsiders present En gel's
cell was first thoroughly ovorhnulwl, and
nothing of note found. Next camu Lingg'd,
Mhile the occupint of tho cell stood nor

the men funio out with acinar box in hli

room. It contained six seated sections of
gas pipe, flllei with tlyminito, ami contain
ing a cap nt oicli end.
Tho search of tho other colls rovealod
nothing of importance, but when tho work
wits comploted Enjel, Pnchor, Ltngg and
Parsons were romovod to a difTjrent ptrt of
the jail, while Spied, Schwab and Fidldoa
will stay in tho old row.
There has boon a reaction in public senti
ment since tho dUoovery. Diy by day for
a week post sentiment in favor of tho inter-po-ition
of exocutire oomoncy has baon
growing, even thogi who, a month asro, de
manded the lifoof tho seven Anarchists, now
declaring they will be satiafidd with a com
mutation of se'ttenca to life imunsinment.
But tho news that the Anarchism hid pre

blow up not only themselves but hundreds
of others prisonori and jail odioiats to
prevent the carrying out of tho law's sen

groaning at abou 11:2!), and on an investi
gation ho was found to bo suffering from
a heavy dose of laudanum. He fought des
perately against taking emetics', declaring
under oath that he had only taken a drink
of whisky, but when a bottle, still contain
ing a small quantity of laudnnum, was
found in tbo urinal bo admitted tbo attempt
on his life. ,
Mayor Roche and Sharifl Mttson spent
some considerable time last evening examin
ing tho windows and doors of the oriminal
court building, anl. as a result of tholr in
vestiga-ion, the outside iron shutters werer
ordered closed and barre L The heavy iron
doore at the Michigan street entrance were
closed and securalv fastened with shackles,
and every precaution taken to preclude tho
possibility of an outside attack. Peramotory
orders were given to allow no ono inside the
building oxcentlnx upon a written ordor

About U o'clock Chief Ebersoll and Lieut

short consultation, the nolics guard was
redoubled and each watch oxteuded three
Deteotives Loewensteln and Cudmoro are
after a man who, it Is believed, threw the
bomb on tho 4th of May. They havo for
some timo been olosi upon his track, and
are now keening a watch upon a saloon just
across the alley from the jail The man has
frequented this place of late, aud the detec
tive feel confident of making a prisoner of
him before long. They refuse absolutely to
divulge any more.
The fire alarm telegraph office in tha olty
hall was put under the protection of Cen
tral station officers last night. Detectives
will hereafter keep two hour watohei there.
All the wires and atann apoaratus in the
city depend on the batteries stored, and any
trouble with the wires now will come under
the immediate notloa of th police.
When Mrs. Parsons, at tb.9 Anarchists'
headquarters, was informed of tho discovery
of the bombs, tho endeavored to make light
of it, and laughed in the silliest way. 'Til
tell you," she said, "how these bombs got
there. Eda Miller, Lingg's girl, wears a
very large bustle. You may have noticed
It of late. It is too Targe for comfort or
style. Then, if you have watched her very
oloeely, you mar have notioed how careful
she always is whon she sits down. If she
wasn't careful she'd gat
blown to atoms, i

Now, I don't wear any
couian-s nave tanon nomas mere, now
you have an explanation." After deliver-
ing herself of this, Mrs. Parsons said with
conscienceless men to raurdor helpless
There were groups of people on tho cor
ners of the block in which the jail is situated
from an early hour this morning, while a
continuous procession of peoplo passed by
oa tbe other side of the street and discussed'
the sensational bomb-flnding developments
of yesterday, with bated breath. Pol loo in
uniform and in plain clothes mixed with the
pedestrians and kept them on the move.
Inside the building tbe guard on the ground
floor wa doubled, and every applioaatfor
admission was compelled to run tho gauntlet
of a balt-doton officers before reaching tho
iron door which given entrance to tha jail
Tbe prisoners, Lingg included, slept well
last night and were up and dressed at an
early hour. All of them exoept him wore
informed of the discovery of the bombs be
fore retiring lost nignt. Fielden, Spies and
Schwab expressed their astonishment and
regret, but Parsons, Eugol and F.scher said
not a word and took tha news as if thoy had
known all about tha matter and understood
what had happened.
Prior to tho visiting hour this morning
Bhuriff Matson and Jailer Folz hold a con
ference, at which it was decidod to admit
tbe relatives as usual, hut to koep tho con
demned men to tholr cells. It was also de
cided not to permit tho relatives to furnish
them with food as heretofore, but to allow
them to ordor what thoy want from a neigh
boring restaurant at tbe sheriff's, expense.
Mrs. Parsons was tbe first visitor of tha
morning. She had loft hur market basket
at home, but carried a large armful of nam-
phlets containing Gen. Trumbull's appeal to j
tho governor, tiha manifested no disap- '
polatment when told that hor husband
would not bo allowed to come out of his cell
but raising her voice, and pressing her face
to the netting, she talked with him a fow
moments across the four feet of space. He
asked for tho morning pipers, which, con
trary to the previous practice, had not toeii
furnished to the prisoners, and tho commit
of Jailer Folz having been obtained, a mes
senger boy was dispatched for thorn.
The wives of Schwab and Engol
came in soon after a'nd were
greatly dismayed when mndo ac
quainted with tha now regulations. Both
of them with tears in their eyes and a gen
eral despondoncy of demeanor pleaded with
Jailer Folz to go back to tho old order of
things, but tbut official was inexorable.
Mrs. Kngol had brought with her a bmkpr
of food, but this was promptly confiscated
and returned to hor when she left "he build
ing. Fordinand nud Christopher Spios, accom
panied by their sister and Nina Van 'A mdt,
wore lato in corning in, and the wotnea
looked daggers at the officials whon they
found th t the usual niorn.n; lovee was a
thing of tho past. Tuore was no hplp for it,
however', anl thoy bad to content them
selves with a cheery "gool morning,"
shouted at tbo top of their lungs to August,
who gnsid at them through tin bars of b s
cell about eighteen feet away. For tho next
ten minutos prisoners and visitors stood aud
conteiuplatud caoh other without a word
It was vory different indeed to the recep
tions of a week ago, when tbe corridor and
cago were filled with a bibel of tongues.
Presently two stalwarts camo in with a
big basket filled to tho top with hot rmls,
lamb ohop, eggs, Btoaks and other tooth
some edibles. The wickets in tho cell doors
were opened, and each of the prisoners was
allowed to ask for what he wanted. Llngg,
who had been standing oloio to the door,
with a ferocious look upon bis countenance,
waiting for the sweetheart that never came,
waved thorn away. Enol, who bu not en
tirely raooverod from the Qffeots of the doso
of laudanum which he took at midnight of
Saturday, with suicidal latent, also refused
to oat. All the othors took their choice of
the food, and ate heartily, washing it down
with steaming cups of coffee. Meanwhile
soveral mrsiunjor boys came in with notes
and telegrams, which were delivered to tbo
prisoners after they had- been opened aud
road by Jailor Folz.
One dispatch of about two hundred words,
however, addressed to Parsons was held
back until it could bo submitted to the
Rev. H. IV". Bolton, of tho First Baptist
church, was admittod on a special permit,
ami held a brief conference with Fieldeu
through the bard of his oaje. A few min
utes before 10 o'clock Cape Black, with a
smile on his face and a shako of the hand
for everybody, was admitted to tbo corri
dor. He said a few words to Lingg and
then wont ou from cell to -cell, having some-
thing toay, toea(Jll of thg mea aQd witQ
Spies he had quite a prolonged talk. As
Mr Parsons was leaving Llngg called out
to her and asked if she woud mail a letter
for him, but Jiller Folz interposed with the
declaration that no written matter would
go out until it bad been examined.
The brother of Spies, however, was per
mitted to tako away some 200 pamphlets and
newspapers that the ex-editor had prepared
for the mails. Jmt as the door was closing
on the last of visitors, Lingg's sweetheart
put in an appearanoe. She was not ad
mitted behind the doors. "Neither you or
anyone eWoan too him for tho balance of
the week," sold the turakay, and she went
away with a toss of her head.
Dr. Gray, the assistant paysiolaa to the
jail, said this morning that there was no
doubt but that Engel t'ok the laudanum
with suicidal intent "He swallowed over
two tablespoousful," said the doctor, "but
it happened to bo a verr" weak ooncoction
and so ha did not sucoeod in his intentions."
.Sheriff Matson this morning said that
there need be no doubt as to the nature of
the stuff found in Lingg's bombs. He said
that part of tho flllln; had been taken out
of a couple of the pipes and exploded, and
that it had been found to be the strongost
kind of dynamite. The sheriff refused to
say when the final test would be made or by
The Moll this afternoon says that M. A.
Collins, of tbe Amnesty association, re
ceived an anonymous letter this morning,
in which a full confession of the man who
throw the bomb at tha Haymarket is osten
sibly made. The letter is addressed to the,
governor of the state of Illinois and the peo
ple of the Unitod States, and saya; "This
communication is made in justice to the
nun tinw mirlnr KAnfanrw nt flaittfi fi th.
murd8r of the policemen at tho Haymarket
on the 4th of May, 18-W. Not a living soul

irritw of these lines, and the sine hand
that p tuo80 wa, th8'ono that threAr tha
deadly missile." He explains that the rea
son be did not confess before was that he
had hopes that the supreme court would in
terfere in their behalf.
After an arraignment of the methods pre
vailing at tbo trial, the writer proceeds; "I
know that this communication will be re
ceived by tbose who are clamoring for tho
blood of these men as a trick to influence
opinion in their favor. Notwithstanding
this I consider that this Is the least that I

Tha latter then explains that tha motive
was ravengo against the police for having
terribly olubbad him on tho 3rd of July,
1835, during tho street car strike, while ha
was quietly attending to business that took
him near the oar barns. It then goes on to
describe the way in which he oatna to select
tha Haymarket for his deadly exploit.

Chicago, Nov. 8. The reports show a

many sections, especially in tha states of
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Iowa. Unless,
copious rains are experienced before tbe net
ting in of winter many farmers will find
themselves in serious difficulty in providing
the necessary water for their stock. The
continued drouth in theso states has also

Lehigh Coal Operator Advance Wages.
Philadelphia, Nov. a Messrs. Pardee,
Coxa and Durnnger, the largest individual
operators in tho Lehigh anthracite region,
who have been working their mines sinoa
the strike began with non-union bands, have
tendered their laborers an advance of 4 per
cent, over the wages paid when the strike
began, as the advance in coal during Octo
ber was sufficient to warrant this. Tbe
same offer, it is understood, is open to the
striking miners with the understanding that
when the price of coal goes down that it
will be taken off, and that if there are any
'further advances in the price of coal that
the miners shall have the benefit of it.
Thus far the miners have not accepted tha
offer and it is not believed that they will,
as it is 11 per cent below the demaud made
by them. The statement telegraphed from
the Lehigh region that William Carter
would givo the minors an advance is said to
have been based upon tbe fact that be would
offer thorn the same advance that had been
offered by the other operators, 4 per cent

WAsniNOTOH, Nov. 8. The war depart
ment people make no secret of the fact tha
thoy nsider tho situation in tho Indiaa
c try more alarming than, at any timo
for some years past. 'The situation is dif
fereut now from what it vor was before,"
said one of tho most thoughtful aud abla of
"You fioo, the Indians are now ablo to
sufltuin ihomso vus in better s mpo on the
war path than they can oil of it. Theso
Crow I idinns, you bee, are now in the midst
of a country full of ctit.lo. Montana has
within i ho piist fow yearn become a great
6tock omntry, and it is full of cattlodo
clgnod for the inurriets. Heretofore tho In
dian, h u thoy went on tho warpath,
have had to sustain themselves by thecuase,
hunting lniir.iloc6.nnd that sort of thing.
Now, all they havo to do is to forage upon
tho ricn country as they pass along. Tho
cattle wilt not run awa, as tho buffaloes
did. Tney stand and allow tho Indians to
boot thorn down. Tho result is that the In
dians not ouiy havo pienty to eat now whea
they go on tuo war patn, but uctuuily faro
better than they would by staying at horn
ami attending to their usual modes of living
without work. Of course this is not only
an encouragement to 'those who have aa
atnbitioit in the way of fighting, but it
inaKes waraalnsethe.n tha more litlloult as
to its uccess. If they find that by war they
cau livo ou the fat of tbo lund when peace
only brings thom the lean, they are likely
to b-sitate nlout giving it up."
"What proportion of these Indians are la
tho fl jbtiug mood now?"
"Oil, only a small proportion, simply tha
young and uneasy meti. Too older oues are
content. But tne young men are appar
ently eager for a fiht, and determined to
have one. The great daugor is that they
may arouse those of other tribes and that
the custom of making war with a view to
raidiu tho cattle uud other valuables in the
countries surrounding their reservations
Since writing the above the dispatches
announce that the Crow Indians held a
council yesterday at their agenoy and re
fused to surrender the warriors who bad

troops resultod, in winch several wore killed
and wounded on eitbor side.
Confederate Guns and Their Lesson.
WAsniNOTO.v, Nov. 8. "Tbo army and
navy peopio are making a great time and
ipending all the money tbey can get in ex
periments and inquiries about cannon,"
laid a Washington man to your correspon
dent, "but if tbey will go down to tbe navy
yard hero they cau get a lesson from the old
Confederate guns that will astonish them, f
and show them that a little practical oensW
Is a big thing in gun making as in anything
"How is thatr was tbe response.
"Why, thore lie tbo big guns which did
iteady sorvioe in the field on tbe Confeder
ate side four years. They are made of com
mon iron, dug from tho earth inside th
Confederate state lines. The army and
navy people are prowling about all over tha
world for material, claiming that our iron
and stool is not strong enough for guns, it's
"What is the history of these gunsl"
"They were made .under tho supervision
of Capt. John Brooks, a West Pointer, who
Is now a professor in a collego at Lexington,
Va. Ho saw that strong guns wore de
manded, and that tbo only prompt and
practical way was to make them of what
ever material he had. So he bad tho tubes
cast and turned down to a fixed size, and
rifled inuida. Then ho bod heavy bauds of
wrought iron two or three inches thick.
Just the size to fie them, and put those ou tha
utsido at white heat and with hydraulic-
pressure, iniwe were turned down and a
second set put on the outside, covering tha
joints in the first set. These again were
turned down, and tho result was a lot of
cannon that stood tho tost of your years'
service, and were able to send balls through
the turrets of the heavy monitors. If these
peoplo who are so anxious to do something
about groat guns would go down to the navy
yard and took over those faithful old pieoos
tbey might 'hear something to their advan
tage.'" Zxms In tha Indian Ilattle.
Washington, Nov. 8. Gen. Terry has
