bad been taken homo during the night, but
tbo bodies of the other two remained where
they were. At o o'clock the doors were
thrown opon and the crowd bvgan to file in.
The bodies rested on stretchers and were
dressed only in the undorclothlng. At first
the visitors wero few, but tho number
steadily grew and before 7 o'clock there was
steady stream of men, women and chil
dren pouring past the stretcher. The
erowd outside grew in numbers also, but it
was quiet and orderly, occasionally one of
the curious would mutter something as he
gazed unon the upturned distorted faces ot
the dead, hut most of the peoplo passed on
silently after a single glance at the counto
jtances of these much talked-of men.
At 9:80 o'clock tho doors were closed. At
that time there was a big crowd outside,
but little or no excitement. At 9:50 o'clock
yischer'a body was removed to the Dean

It Is determined to make this the greatest
funeral ever held in Chicago if the authori
ties do not provont It,
Plaster casts have been taken of the faces
ef the dead Anarohists, except that of
In answer to a quostion as to whother he
feared any trouble at tho funeral of tho
dead Anarchists, Sheriff. Matson says: "1
do not expect any trouble whatever. Tba
good sense of tbe people will provail. Stand
ing in the presence of those dead bodies all
people must solemnly realizo that the law
will prevail. The funeral may be a tribute
to the memory o, tbe dead, but it will be a
reverential one on the part of their friends
and cannot, under any circumstances, b
marked by any disorder."
Speaking of the last words of tbe Anarch
fcts and the abrupt termination of Parsons'
speech, the shorlff said: "It has been cus
tomary to lot men say a lost word on th
gallows. There Is no law on the subject,
and it reste entirely with' tbe Indulgence of
the sheriff. Some time ago the men asked
Be to give them each twenty minutes for
speeches, bun this is more than I could
grant. Just before tbe march to the gallows
began they Intimated that they did not care
to cay anything. I did not deem it expe
dient for them to make long speeches, and
H ia never customary to permit any delay
after the cap have been' adjusted. I de
layed the execution until 13 o'olock in order
to get the last and final docision fromtht
governor. I wanted to give them every
chance for thoir lives."
How the World Was Informed.
Chicago, Nov. 14. When Anarchist
Parsons arojo from his oot Friday morning
be heard a sound which instantly riveted his
attention. Hastily putting on his clothing
bo came to the door of his cell and peered
through tho bars Into the cage on tho oihor
side of tbo corridor, where the members of
tbu bar hold consultations with their client.
There in the conter of the cage, with the
doom looked and barred on either aide, aa
much prisoners as any of the condemned
men, sat tne representatives of the United
Frees. Tho finger of tbe operator was upoa
the key of the telegraph instrument, and it
was probably the steady "click," "cllok,"
whioh had boon echoing through tho corri
dors for hours which broke tba slumbers of
more than one of tho condemned men. .
Parsons stood there and looked with a
halt mystiuod, half inquiring look upon his
face. And well he nilgnt Knowing much
of tbe newspaper business himself he proba
bly knew that it was the first time in tbe
journalistic history of tho world that the
electric current bad been introduced right
into tho very corridor of death Itnelf for tba
purpose of chronicling the final movements
of men who wero about to oxpatlato a crima
with their lives. From long beforo daylight
until cold nnd limp the bodies had been re
moved from tbe building, the instrument
kopt up its ceaseless click, and tho pllo of
copy in front of tbe operator grow and
grow. The cage was so locate I that every
movement of the four men could bo dis
cornod.' There was scarcely six feet of
space between tho table and tbo door of
Parsons col' on the left, while to tho right
around tbe bind of tho corridor, not ten feet
awny, tho operator could see the last of the
condetnnod mon as they stepped from tba
gallery to the gallows.
Tho whito linen shrouds of tho four
rubbed against the wires on the outside of
tbo cage as the proconlon left tbe corridor,
and ere the bead of it had commenced to as
cend tho steps the fact that the final moment
was at hand was flashing ovor tbe United
Press wires in all directions. Thon with his
flngor on the key tbe operator sat motionless.
His eyes were riveted on the little sontry
box a few feet away where the unknown
executioner was awaiting the signal He
heard the short crack upon the chisel that
severed the rope. He pressed his finger upon
the koy,-and even before the bodies had
fallen the full length of their ropes it was
known in tens aud hundreds of cities
throughout the country, that tho dread sen
tence of the law had been fulfilled. Nevor
bofore had realism in the distribution of
nows boon more graphically illustrated, and
never beforo had the echo of the hammer
nnd chisel ot tho exectionor boon literally
flashed over the wires to tbe outer world.
Schwab and Flelden Taken to Jollot.
Chicago, Nov. 14. Mrs. Schwab, hor
mother, Mrs. Schnaubelt, and her two chil
dren wero admitted to the jail, tbe latter
behind tho scroen, this morning, where tho

leave for thorn to assemble in tbe jail offioo,
but changed his mind nt the lost moment,
and husband and wifo said thoir odious
through the wire screen.

New York, Nov. 14. George Franois
Train arrived from tho west last night. He
says the Anarchists will blow up every city
between Now York and San Francisco until
they fool that tho murder of their four com
rades is avenged. He says Lingg did not
commit suiolde, but that a dyuamite cart
ridge was placed in a candle in his cell by
the authorities, who feared that the men
would be pardoned unless it appeared that
some violence was done by them.
NkwYork, Nov. 1. The Volks-Zeitung
to-day, in commenting on the executions In
Chicago says: "Those who were conse
crated for destruction met their fate
bravely, looking into the eyos of death with
out flinching. To them it was something
holy to perish for their convictions. Our
enemies for the time triumphed. To-day
tbe venal press of tbe capitalists blows
noisy bugle blasts over the 'order' which
prevailed and exults over the brutal fashion
in which the relatives of the victims and
their diioiples wore greeted on the oocason
of the judicial murder.'
Tbe Freihelt in discussing tbe subject,
says: "As pioneers of a pure rutlonolor-i
ganization of society they saw the evil oou-1
dition Into which our social civilization had
fallen and tboy criticised it in their news
papers and from platform and rostrum
sharply and severely. In their propaganda
they expressed strong sympathy with the
workingmen and did their best to direct tbe
people to a higher standard and convinco
i them that it was an absolute necessity to
I bring about a bettor and purer state of
things. For this oause were these peoplo in
murderous fashion put to death. They
I wore warriors against sooial and political

Gauisboro, III, Nov. 14. Some Knox
college students suspended five effigies from
a wire stwtohed between two high trees,
above tho ground, just in front of tho col
lege, Thursday night, and, apparently to
prevent interruption, smeared the posts of
tbe college gate with tar, and passed a
board between chetn. Four of the effigies
were of men, tbe fifth a woman. In addl-1
tion to bearing the names of four members
of 'ho senior class, and one of the seminary,
tba effigies were also named Parsons, Spies,
Fngol. Lingg, and tho female effigy Nina
Van Zandt. The affair has caused a sensa
tion, and is roundly condemned. The mass
of Students are organizing a vigilance com
mittee to ferret out the perpetrators, aad
el pulsions will probably result.

BnooKLY.f, N. Y., Nov. 14 Tho police
reserves In this city were to-day ordered to
be held in reserve at the station bouses front
now until Monday evening. Tho authorities
do not propose to tolerate any stioh thing as
Anarchy in their midst. It will therefore
be useless for the Anarchists of New York
city to cross over tho bridge or tho Will
(amsport ferries with the expectation of
finding a safe retreat for their f ulminatiou
of their lawless diatribes on this side of tbe
river. "We are not going to nllow any
party of Anarchists to parade in Brooklyn,
said Police Superintendent Campbell, "We
will have no funny business whatever. That
must be understood once and for all, as we
are In earnest."

TARIFF REFORMERS TO MEET BEFORE
The President Itelloves that the Tariff
Question Will be the Great Issue of the
Next Campaign legislation Planned on
the Subject Other Washington News.
Washington, Nov. 14. It is understood
that there will bo another conference of
leading tariff reform Democrats in Wash
ington before the assembling of congross.
Tho president has been an earnest advocate
of tariff reform ever since he entered tba
White House. It is known that tho presi
dent was disappointed at tho failure of tbe
house to pass a tariff bill last session.
Mr. Cievelaud believes that tbo tariff
question will form tbo principal issue of tbo
next campaign. His nnnual message will
probably recommend, in ever stronger
terms than beforo, a substantial reduction
of the tariff. Mr. Carlisle is expected hero
oon, aud it is thought that before the end
of next week n definite program will bo
mapped out to securo some legislation on
tho tariff this winter.
Congressman W. C. P. Breckinrldgo, of
Kentncky, has boon here for sovoral days,
and is regarded by many as the probable
successor of Col. Morrison at the head of tho
ways and means committee. In an inter
view with a reporter Mr. Breckinridge said:
"I think there will bo a roductloti of tho
revonue this winter, and I hope and believe
that it will be not only a reduction of tho
surplus but a reduction also of the burdens
of taxation. I think that events have so
shaped themselves that no man can stand
up in the house this winter and resist a mo
tion to go into committee of the whole for
the purpose of agreeing upon a bill for tbe
reduction of tbe rovonue and no man will
say that the revenue should not bo reduced.
I think it will be agreed that whether the
bill presented be a good or a bad bill, that
they should take it up and trust to tho in
telligence of tbe house to bring out a good
act. Just what the result may be I have no
idea, but I think that among Republicans
aud Democrats men of all shades of opinion,
who think something should bo done a bill
meeting in some way the damands of the
occasion will be passed, and the revenue
will be reduced without Increasing tho bur
dens of the peoplo
Increasing the Marine Corps.
Washington, Nov. 14. Tho annual re
port of Col. McSawley, oommavdant of tho
Marino corp-i, asks for an increase of 600

between sea and shore duty, and is inade
quate and overworked. The barracks at

that Phil. D, Armour, Chicago's million
aire pork packer, is baoking up tbe Orange
' Belt railroad, a corporation now building a
line from Lake Monroe, 125 miles south of
Jacksonville, to the gulf. The line was
originally a saw mill log tramway five
1 miles long. It was first built to a neighbor
ing village, then extended by slow degrees,
a company formed and new iron laid.
Traffic on tbe road had stopped several
times, even after fifty miles was In opera
tion, and a failure was predicted. But P.
A. Demews, the president, is an exiled
Russian nobleman and an Indefatigable
I After his last trip north, it waa learned
that new capital had been secured, but no
thing could be fully learned till to-day,
when it was ascertained that Armour had a
J finger in tho pie. The Orange belt runs
from Monroe, a station on the Jacksonville,
Tampa & Key West railway, a few miles
north and west of Sanford, and thonco in a
southwesterly direction to Point Pinellas, on
tbe gulf, a distance of 150 miles, and will
pen up one of the finest and most pictur
esque portions of the state, it is also re

two or three times as large a the deal ot tbe
Baltimore & Ohio telegraph transfer about '

which made and lost fortunes for specula
tors. The length of tho street oar line

ninety miles, and tbe prioe paid therefor is

HIS REASON AFFECTED.
Voung Choate a Wreck from Bratat
liming at Williams College.
PiTTSBDRO, Nov. 14, Developments la
tho Choate hating case at Williams college
Indicate that the guilty Sophomore will be
made to suffer. The college trustees have
Interviewed tbe faculty, and it is under
stood that the faculty are censured by them
for not being more vigorous in pushing the
Investigation of the affair. It has leaked
out that there was somo plain talk by tbe
trustees who feel that tbo college ha been
disgraced and wish to have the matter sifted
to tho bottom. Francis L. Stetson, vie
president ot the alumni, camo on from New
York yesterduy, had a consultation with tbe
faculty and met the Sopnomoro class.
Tbe Sophomores have boon asked to have
the mon who did tho hazing appear before
tho faculty aud give a full accouut of the
affair. Mr. Choate recently told a friend in
PittsfieU that ho should not rest until ho
had made n full investigation ot tho caso.
Youug Choate is in a bad condition. His
mind is unbalanced, and he may become
hopelessly insane The Sophomores are
thoroughly frightened, and it is evident
they are making ovory effort to conceal the
real facts. Recently developments in the
case strongly indicato that tho worst has
not yet Loen told, and that young Choate
was more hitmef ully treated than has yet
been made public. It was reported last
week that bo wou.d go back to college, but a
bis montal condition makes it probablo that
he will nevor again be a well man, and that
ho en not complete his college course.
Wholesale Jail llellvery.
TAm.FQUAn, I. T., Nov. 14. A wholosol
jail delivery took place here Thursday even
ing, and fifteen of the worst desperadoes in
the southwest secured thoir liberty. The
jail is a large square stone structure in tbe
outskirts of tbe to-vn. The interior is
wainscoted with two inch planks, and clo'od
with sheet iron. Last night tbe sheet iron
was torn awuy, a plank wroucbed off and
used as a le"er on the scone wall, and a bole
large enough for a man to pass was out
through. The two guards in the lntorlor
were bound and gagged, and tho cells were
broken open. Among tho prisoners who
escaped were Ave murderers, three horse
thieves, aud seven lesser criminals. "Red
Jim," one of the murderers, has a record of
killing six men. The oxcitomont caused by
the affair dwarfed tho fight in tbo legisla
ture, aud a posso was hastily raised and is
now in put-suit.
Heavy Clothing Failure.
New York, Nov. 14. Hon y E. Moss,
whoiesalo manufacturer of clothing, at 03J
Broadway, has made an assignment to Sam--net
Jerkowsky. The failure was entirely
unexpected, and Mr. Moss says it is due to
the dishonesty of Mr. Srhlesinger, who he
dealares is now a fugitive, with a shortage
of $i 0,000 or over in his accounts. Mr.
Moss went traveling recently and loft
Schlesinger a lot of checks, sigued in blank,
to be used exclusively in the business and a
