A VERDICT OF SUICIDE RENDERED BY
THE CORONER'S JURY.
THeorlM ti Ac-aant for the Itecelpt of
tha Deadly Bomb am later-eating; nnd
. Homaatle Story of Jagg's tlfe Aid
Asked for tho. Anarchists Families. t
Chioaoo, .Noy. 18. Before tbe coroner'a
jury investigating the death of Louts Ling?,
ja'ler Fola testillod that LIngg killed him
self vi (th a small bomb three luchos long.
Mr, Folz exhibited a half docen twlstod and
blood-stained pieces of gat-plpa. These
Wore the piooes found In Ltngg's coll A
mall bolt one" and a half inches lon
plunged up one end of tho little bomb, and
the rest containe 1 the dynamite.
Jailor Folz then described tbe finding of
the bombs: "On that miming,1' said Mr.
Fo z, "we mado a search of Llng's cell.

It was pretty dark, and Ho?an ran ajatnst
some nttstruotion. It fell over on tho bot
tom, spilllnc out two bombs on the floor.
When we trot qu'etod a little wo took the
b,)X out. It hod a falsa bottom, nnd in thera
we found two mora bombs. We soarchod
all' the prisoners and Line's oejl thor
oughly, and how he eot tao bomb with
which he killo I hlmwlf I otnnot say."
Sheriff Matsoti qieitloiol Mr. Fo'.z until
he elicited the face that no one had been
near nor could get near I.lngg after tba four
bombs wore found except thj two keeper
Sheriff Matron said afc rwar 1 tint L ng
mut have bad the bombs ooncoiihcl about
his person B'ltnewhere.
William Kige.hart and. John O'Njil, tba
turnkeys who examine aid p pto'tagei,
testified to tbe careful searching of all fruit,
etc, sent to Li, the only new fact
brought out b thin bilnj tut Lings; wan
allowed to smoke cigars after the bombs
were found In his olL
Sheriff Mtiioi wa Ot thi ttanl for
twenty minutes. H theory was that
Llngg received tho tximb with whloh ha
killed himself through tin Boresning; that it
was glv .i h'ira by come outride party bi
fore tho big find of Sunday, and that ho had
concealod it in some mysterious manner
about his person.
John C. Klein, the Timoi reporter who
aided the physician in caring for Llngg
after the explosion, gave a plaunble theory
as to tho manner In wh oh the bomb was
got through tbo tho bars into Lingg's hands.
"On the .Thursday before the bombs was
found, Miss Friedel, or MUs Mueller, bettor
known as 'Ltngg'a girl, " said Mr. Klein,
"came to the Jail. Lingg wai alo wod to boo
and talk txrher through tho bars. A crowd
of Ltngg'a friends pressed close around the
girl, and tbeu the bomb might have boon
passed through tho screen."
The jury was out twenty-five minutes and
returned a verdiot to the effect that "Louis
L'tigg came to his'leath on the 10th day of
November from shook, hemorrhage and
fatty embolism of tho heart, caused by the
explosion of a bomb about two Inches long,'
half an inch in diamuter, and fl.led with
dynamite, said bomb txjlng exploded by his
own hands with suicidal intent."
Tho Storv of Llogg's Life.
CmoAOO, Nov. IS. "I could tell you au
mtertsthig story," said a jail official, ad
dresshig a reporter, '"and though It is tho;
truth from beginning to eiid, yet it is' ao
strange that 'it may seem more flotldn than
anything eke. I don't care to have my
name mentioned, and should prefer pot to
mention tha name of tha man I am going tt
speak of, but to do so would destroy tha
point of niy story Vary much, so I will go
right ahead 'and aay I am going-to talk of
Liflgg; the" Anarchist bomb makor.
'You know; of .course, that' Ltugg was
bora in a town lit 'Germany called Maori -helm.
You didn't know, possibly, that his
mothr!a dremakerthero and pretty wait
to-do, too, and that shortly "after her Won was
condemned to death she wrote" hi tn a long let
ter. That letter was never made public It
ought not to be, and I am only going to tell
you so much of Its content as may suit the
purposs ot my story. She gave up all hopa
for him on learning -tha facta that cams out
on the' trial, and told him to die bravely.
Sheanthfin no money, though she could
afford to do so, and whatever were her feel
ings ovor the certainty that her son was to
die, they were not' disclosed in tha letter.
She must be a woman of uncommon will
power. Doubtless it was from hor that
Llngg inherited his resolution. You' know
what a despirate man ha was. You know
bow unoompromlsing, how determined, hoW
daring. All of u about tha jail ware aware
that tba man set no value upon his life. He
cared not the anap ot his finger for it.
Spies said Ue could not understAnd Llngg.
Schwab "said he'Vas a puzzle. Tha others
looked upon him as an odd compound of
hardihood, unquestioned physical courage,
but mentally ao odd that they never knew
how to take him. Ho was the slave of con
"Lingg's father waa a nobleman; hid
mother came from tha "humbler olasses.
Her parents were dapandants, and lived on
tbe estate of this nobleman's father. Tbe
girl was comely and aa lntimaoy sprang up '
between her and the son ot tha old nobto
man. It waa tha old, old story. The man
who ended his lite in suoa a terrible manner
here last Thursday' was not Uoruiu Wed
lock. We know that; Capt. Sohaaok knows
it, and we'know further that Ltngg hated
bis father with a ferocity 'that" was soma
thing terrible. 'He hated' tho class' to' whion
bis father belonged he hated and despised
the ruling classes. Ha hated, tbe rich.
"But some ot tha' qualities belonging "to
his father helped to maker L'.ngi the' strange
man he waa. He had q'llck' intelligence),
and though his educational opportunities
were limited ha was fa rly well read and a
fluent and convincing talker in German. He
aspired td work a onano in the' condition of
things which oppressed tha "working class,
and to afford tba poor a larger measure of
contentment. I have an idea this part of
his character came from his father, but thon
associate that with a spirit of impat(eno, a
sense ot wrong and iujustioj, a fejling ot
hatred for thossjn authority, and you sea
what a mixed character you have. Tha
nobleman came from a family ot soldiers;
there is where Liu jg got bis stubborn pnysi
cal courage. From a caild nidi be was
sixteen ytars ol he was made tosnfferfrbm
tbe tuuit and iusulcs of h s ptaymtcm. Ha
was sensitive, and those affronts embittered
his whole life.

sympathy between a portion of the police
and the .Leaguers, not even the Dublin Cas

ther on the part of tbe constables than to
induce them to close their eyas to many
things prohibited and fall back upon the
plea that what they do not see thov cannot
be expected to meddle with. This is quite
sufficient for tbe Leaguers nnd they are
making the most of their opportunities.
