November 8, 1887. J
There was a city in expec
tation of being besieged, and
a council was called accord
ingly to discuss the best
means of fortifying it. A
bricklayer gave his opinion
that no material was so good
as brick for the purpose. A
carpenter begged leave to sug
gest that timber would be far
preferable ; upon which a
currier started up and said,
"Sirs, when you have said all
that can be said, there is noth
ing in the world like leather."
So reads one of Aesop's
fables ; and it reads very well,
considering tne times ; in
those days leather might have
done for keeping the enemy
out, but rubber hadn't been
KEEP THE ENEMY OUT.
The great enemy is wet and

Sword Bearer nnt to the Happy Hunting
Crow Agesct, Xot. 8. The troops and
Indians bad a skirmish Saturday, in which
Sword Bearer and four of his braves, and
Charles Sampson, a corporal in troop K,
First cavalry, were killed. Private Molloy,
of troop K, was wounded. Most of the In
dians went back to camp, but a score or
more took to the hills, pursued by cavalry.
The body of Sword Bearer, the Indian
medicineman and leader of the recalci
trants, has been brought to the agency.
The killing of the leader has raised the ire
of the Indians, and they are unable to con
ceal theli hatred for the whites. They are
vindictive in their talk. Deaf Bull, a warm
friend of Sword Bearer, is said to be gath
ering the young bucks about him for an
other battle with the regulars. There were
about two hours of actual fighting on Sat
urday. RUMPUS WITH A RAILROAD.

of state was on Monday compelled to in

the attorney general that the secretary has
no judicial powers. A strong protest was
filed against the incorporation by reputable

kind is needed in the border counties te

Petitions for the Fxerutlon of the An
archists. Ciiic.uio, Xov. 8. Judge Gary, before
whom the anarchists were tried, said con
cerning Lmgg and the finding of dynamite
bombs in the jail:
"He is generally looked upon as the
most desperate of the condemned men. and
undoubtedly he intended to blow up the
building and kill as many people as possi
ble. The fact that he had ariurd himself
with four of the deadly weapons would
seem to indicate that he was determined to
do as much damage as he could. I sup
ose this will tend to alarm the people and
will create a most decided sensstiou. I am
not worrying over my prospects. 1 expect
to Uvea while yet, an) how. One of my
lady neighbors is afraid her windows will
be broken w hen my house is blown up. I
feal aorry for her and shall try to hold
down my house in order to save her win
dows. 1 hate to hate my friends suffer on
Sheriff Matson said that there was no
doubt as to the nature of the stuff found in
l.lngg's bombs; that part of the tilling had
been taken out or a couple of pipes and ex
ploded, and that it had been found to be
the strongest kind of dynamite. The am
nesty people have their tables en the street
again this morning, but there seems to be
less disposition on the part of the crowd to
sign the petitions than on Saturday, and
but few names are being secured.
"Can you tell who the expert is to whom
the bombs were sent for examination?" was
asked ef Sheriff Matson.
"I do not think that it wjuld be policy to
do so," was the reply, as he tried to brush
the reporter aside. The sheriff said finally:
"I might as well tell you that it is known
to be d)iiamite. Captain Schnaack opened
one of the bombs last night and took out a
small portion of the contents. He ex
ploded it and found it to be very powerful.
An analysis is being made and I expect to
receive the report of this today. When It
is secured 1 will not hesitate to make it
After the sheriff disappeared the military
form of Inspector Bontield appeared. He
said he was disgusted and he looked it. but
it was a fighting disgust which showed it
self plainly in his Hashing eyes. "I am
disgusted," he said, "at the cowardice of
the men who. although prominent, have no
strength of mind, and who knock each
other down in an effort to get to the front
and sign petitions, through fear that their
property will be lost to them In case of a
"Don't you beliete that the finding of
the bombs will produce a revulsion in the
breasts of sympathetic petitioners?" he was
"1 don't. It will only cause the people
to sign the petition the faster. I tell you
when people get scared you can expect
them to do almost anything. A great many
believe the police placed the bombs in
Lingg's cell, and this belief will make them
all the more eager to sign the petition. By

Captain Black and Moses Solomon called
at the jail. Black had only stepped into
the office when Jailer Foltz Vk him into a
private room and talked earnestly to him.
Black then talked with each of his clients
through their cell doors.

n rprjortrtl to have said fn " representatives
of the Amnesty association that hiV letter'
giicu iu mic fjuuuc a alum lime, agu, in
which he expressed himself like Parsons as
wishing either liberty or death, was forced
from lilm by a powerful outside in
fluence, the nature of which he dares
not divulge. He also said that
this letter was not even written by him but
was penned outside the jail and sent in for
his signature. He alleged that thus being
compelled to utter sentiments which he did
not teel at heart, had broken him all up
and that he did not care to live any longer.
He also declared that against his will lie
had been prevented from signing the peti
tion which Spies, Fielden and Schwab bad
addressed to Governor Oglesby.
Parsons wrote a long communication
which he handed to the reporters unsigned.
It was an almost hysterical denunciation of
the bomb discovery as a prearranged trick
of the condemned men's enemies to blacken
them In the eyes of the public. The meals
of the prisoners being no longer allowed to
come from their friends, but being instead
furnished by the sheriff, he permitting the
men to order at his expense whatever they
like, the bill of fare has become a subject
of interest X'o little curiosity was ex
pressed today as to just what food such a
man as the bomb maker Lingg would like.
When the time came Lingg calmly requested
blood sausage, sauerkraut and apple pie.
He ate them all with a relish.
Si'isiNOFiEMi, 111., Xov. 8. Over two
hundred and fifty letters and petitions were
received by Gov. Oglesby this morning in
reference to the anarchists' cases, the
far greater portion being as usual,
from Chicago. It is asserted
with confidence that, contrary to
the rule heretofore, the proportion of de
mands for execution were greatly In excess
of requests for clemency. This change of
sentiment has undoubtedly been occasioned
by finding the bombs in Lingg's cell. Ru
mor says two more threatening letters were
received by the governor this morning and
according to the invariable custom, w ere
promply consigned to the flames.
SruixoFiEUi, 11L. Xov. 8. At a caucus
held by the united labor delegation and its
sympathizers, it was decided not to wait on
Governor Oglesby until tomorrow.
CuicAiio, Xov. -8. Spies, Parsons.
Fielden, Schwab, Fischer and Engel were
let out of their cells at 9 o'clock
this morning, and for an hour they
exercised in the cell-house enclosure.
The bailiffs walked up and down the ex
ercise space, one with each, whom they did
not allow to be more than five or six feet
away from them. While the men were at
exercise each cell was searched minutely.
Nothing suspicious was discovered. Miss
Van Zandt and Mrs. Fischer were the only
visitors at the jail, except the Rev. W. II.
Bolton, of the Methodist church. Miss
Van Zandt talked to Spies three or four
minutes, witli the bailiff within hearing
A loaded dynamite bomb was found this
morning on west Van Buren street, not
far from a polling place where voting
was in progress. The bomb was made
of gas pipe and was eight inches long. The
ends were closed with Iron tops, screwed
firmly en. The fuse was attached at the
center of the bomb. There were eight
baskets of grapes sent by John Brown, jr..
who Is a son of the great emancipator.
Accompanying them was amessage.stating
that the sender was a foe to monopoly of
any sort The baskets were given to mem

The campaign, which in many respects
has been one of the most remarkable in
the history of Springfield, was brought to a
fitting close Monday night by republicans
with a f raad old-fashioned love feast at the
The meeting itself was remarkable for
its graat crowd, fur its brilliant enthusiasm,
for Its coterie of bright speakers and for
the general good will and good humor of
the .audience. The lower floor
ot the wigwam the parquette
and dress circle, so to speak was literally
packed with enthusiastic republicans who
cheered and cheered yes, yelled until
they were hoarse. Victory seemed to fill
thetalr and the scent of the battle, the time
fotwhicli had come, inspired tlie republi
jaVrs with an uncommon eagerness for the
fray, and they could not restrain their en
thusiasm. A great many ladles were present and as
heartily appreciated the speeches delivered
as theirntaasculine friends and several
limes during the evening they waved their
handkerchiefs In approval.
Mr. It F. Hayward, chairman of the re
publican county central committee, presid
ed over the meeting, ami lie stated, when
he called the audience to order, that all
tieeches would be limited to nte minutes.
He remarked to the auditors that If they
did not like a speaker local! him down and
he would stop the flow of his eloquence in
less tlianjthe allotted five minutes. It was
complimentary to the speakers that not one
them was called down.
Jndge L. F. Young was first called UDon.
He thought the time for talking was past.
and that the time far action had arrived.
He gave republicans the advice that Hon.
Zaeh. Chandler gave, viz.: On election day
close up your places of business ami work
for your country. He denounced the circu
lar which Abell issued yesterday as a most
Infamous outrage ami said, amid ringing
applause, that the author was as infamous
as the circular.
The Judge was followed by Mr. J. M.
Calhoon, who, last fall, trained with tne
non-partisans. He is all right now, how
ever, and made a rattling speech last night
K-ferring to the Abell circular, he said:
Abell undertakes to say that every citizen
of Springfield and Clark county is a block
head, for he expects us to believe that he.
alone and unaided, will again place the in
famous "black laws' on the statue books.
He hasn t stated in a single speech that
he cannot do any such
or that the legislature can not do It. but !
such Is the truth. His circular is an insult to the great heart of an audience, and ii
to every druggist to every physician, to ' Kenlous and coherent as to plot. It is a

He from beginning to end.
Mr. Weaver was succeeded by General
Keifer. who was received with rousing ap
plause. He thought that the time for indi
vidual work had now come and that It was
too late for the discussion of party issues.
Referring to the mixed school question he
said that in another year we should find tlie
democratic party denying with the ut
most bittemes that it had ever
opposed mixed schools. General Gordon
said in his Cleveland speech that on the 3th
of April, lSo. he began to shout for the
union. On that day, said the general, Goi-
Til -. ' .L ------- ----- -- -
oon was n iin i.ee a army at Appomattox, i
saw him on the afternoon of that day and
be was not shouting for the union then, and
was as unreconstructed as ever. He paid.
in conclusion, a glowing tribute to Governor
Esquire Kelly, of Greene townhlp, made
a ringing republican speech, and the funny
anecdotes he related nearly convulsed his
hearers with laughter.
E. S. Wallace, esq., although suffering
from a severe cold, made a fine tpeech. in
which he made a strong and brilliant plea
for Hon. GwrgeC. Rawlins.
Mr. Wallace was followed by Senator
Fringle In a characteristically brilliant
speech, in which he bril'iantly pointed out
the loves and hates of the republictn party.
Mr. E. J. Vose thought that if anybody
in the house loved the republican party it
was he. lie said ;hat if an intricate
machine In his shop was to be
operated, the best mechanic was always
selected te operate it, and he though it ad
visable to apply the same rule to politics.
Fur one. therefore, he had chosen J. B.
Foraker to manage the state of Ohio.
Rev. Or. R. II. Rust, of the High Street
M. E. church, was called upon, and in re
sponse said that he could not hare found
any justification for taking part in the
meeting if it had not been resolved
into a sort of Methodist experi
ence meeting. My convictions and
sentiments, said he, are with the republican
party, because it is a party of principles.
It is the champion ot equality. Burke, iu
one of his famous orations, said that the
rights of the best citizen on tlie banks of
the Thames were safe only when those of
the meanest citizen on the banks of the
Ganges were prelected, and I say to you
that the rights of the best citizen on the
banks of the Ohio are safe only
when those en the banks of the
Mississippi are protected. Great ap
plause. I should not perhaps say any
thing here tonight unless it be to balance
up the utterances of some of the clergy of
this city. Applause When a man uses
the pulpit lrum which to inculcate partisan

of republicans, democrats and the third

the day would be an epoch in the history
of Claik couuty. Applause and cheering.
Chairman Hayward then called upon
Hon. George U. Itawlins, and as he as
cended the platform he was given a verita
ble ovation by the audience. Men stood
up in their seats, threw their hats in the
air and cheered, while the ladies waved
their handkerchiefs enthusiastically. Mr.
Rawlins referred to the scandalous man
ner in which he aud his friends
had been talked about by Abell, but re
frained from retorting in kind. He made
the speech of a gentleman and was heartily

The suit of Alex. Freeman, a Mechanics-
burg butcher, against tlie Springfield Pub
lishing Co.. publishers and proprietors of
the Republic, for 55,000 damages for al
leged libel, came to a mild and rapid ter
mination in court of common pleas Mon
day afternoon. The suit it will be remem
bered, was brought on the grounds of a
statement in the Rnrcm.ic that Freeman
had been arrested for selling meat unfit for
fond. George Arthur, esq., represented
the plaintiff and Oscar T. Martin, esq., and
J. K. Mower, esq , the defendants. The
trial of the case commenced Friday and
