Chicago, Nov. 10. 9 a. m. Louis
Lingg, the bomb-maker, has just commit
ted suicide in his cell in jail. He ended Ills
lift by meaus of a fulminating cap. He
held the cap in his mouth and lit it with a
candle, which was burning in his cell. The
explosion was the first warning tlin jail
people had. The guard, seeing him with
the candle in his hand, supposed be was
lighting a cigar. From the effects of the
e i plosion, half of his head was torn ana-.
Immediately after the explosion. Deputy
U'Xiel put his head in Llngg's cell, which
was completely enveloped in smoke. There
he found the young anarchist, lying on his
back, with great holes in his head, from
which the blood was rushing in
torrents. He was at once carried
into the jail oilice and placed
on the table. He was still breathing faint
ly, and while Dr. Gray was examining him
he coughed slightly, and the blood again
poured forth from the terrible wounds and
from his mouth and nose. The physician
said tho man could only lire an hour or so
at tnot, and that he expected his death
every minute. At 10 o'clock he was still
All day yesterday it was thought that
Lingg acted differently from usual. Tues
day night he gave out his "farewell ad
dress" which was written for the Alarm,
Parsons's old paper. In It he recited at
length his grievance and closed as follows:
'ow with a last and earnest farewell to all
friends and comrades and with final w ishes
for their prosperity I close in view of a cer
tainty that I shall never hae a chance of
seeing you again. My beloved comrades,
with an earnest and hearty wish for your
future success in life, your comrade, 'lloch
fsioxEt Louis I.isgo.
Yesterday Lingg asked if his sweat-heart,
Edna Muller, had gone to Springfield, and
he was told that she had remarked that If
he could Aave seen her, be would have told
her to stay at home.
O'N'eil, one jf the guards who remained
on duty before Lingg's cell, throughout the
day, declared that Lingg was the coolest
man in the Cook county jail. He wast cry
pale, but bis appetite was gooi and he slept
Arrangements Brine Made for the Hanc
lnE f tlio Anarchist. How Sheriff
Chicago, Xov. 10. All is quiet about
the City building, and little excitement Is
felt over the new phases arising In the An
archists' caes. The mayor and police are
silent regarding their intentions, but say
they are ready for anything which may oc
cur. Chief Kbersold said that he had men
ou guard at the telegaph department and at
various other places which he did not care
to mention. He has held various confer
ences with Major Itoclie, but on what sub
ject could not be learned.
The police are tery reticient as to their
plans and movements, for the reason, they
claim, that their intentions might be de
feated If exposed. They express every
confidence in themseltes, however, and
state that they feel fully able to cope with
anything which may transpire. Mayor
Koche said, when spoken to In regard to his
part in the matter of keeping order, that he

not behoove him to express any opinion
upon the question, as it might have an effect
on the people not Intended. He was kept
aware, however, pf passing events, and
would do all in his power to preserve order.
Sheriff Matson said that If he did not hear
from the governor by tonight he would begin
arrangements for the execution.
"Jailer Koltz and deputies, whom 1 have
not yet selected, will adjust the nooses, and
1 will be present to superintend the whole.
while a force of deputy sheriffs, police and
bailiffs will be in readiness to render any
assistance necessary, he said. "As provid
ed in the statutes of this state I will swear
in a jury of twelve, two of whom must be
pht sicians, to view the bodies. They and
the lawt ers in the case and the press rep
resentatives, will be the only ones allowed
to witness the execution. The "1'osey
count' reporters and 'patent Inside' fakirs
w ill not be allowed in, and a small army
of these country press gentlemen who have
requested passes will be disappointed, and
only the representatives of the Chicago
press and the big dailies in other large cities
will be the luckvor unlucky ones, just as
you please to put it."
The sheriff is evidently not pleased with
the prospect of the ghastly business before
him, and he looked as solemn as a Domini
can monk during the time he was giving
the details of the nerve-destroying prepa
rations. Hut the sheriff has plenty of
American pluck. Is far from being chicken
hearted, and will do his duty without flinch
ing. Lingg, the condemned bomb-maker, has
written a manifesto which he Intended to
be published after his death, but which has
fallen into the hands of the reporters. In
it he says he realized fully that he and the
other condemned men could have been
saed If they had asked clemency, but he
believed that the working classes would be
best served by their death. Unless labor
ing people get their rights bv legislation.
he sajs. retolutlonis not far distant. The
hanging of the condemned may be regard
ed as murder, and in that case it will the
sooner result in the overthrowing of the
tyranUof capital and monopoly.

excitement prevails here ver the crisis In
the all-absorbing anarchist casev The gov

fuses to see anyone. Action of some kind
is expected at any hour. A messenger just
hurried to the mansion with the intelli

said to have abstained from 11 expression
of surprise or horror at the news.
It Is confidentially believed here that the
Governor will today commute the sentences
of Fielden, Spies and Schwab to imprison

grant a temporary respite to the condemned
A letter from August Spies was gUen to
the governor, this morning, in which he

At 10:15 Dr. Gray made further exami
nation and found that the tissues of the
throat neck and front of the jaw had been
torn away. He administered stimulants,
but they failed to rouse the man; yet the
doctor states now that there Is a faint pos
sibility that Lingg may yet live. Mr. Grin
nell says that In case he lives until tomor
row a stay of execution for him at least-
will be granted.
Mr. Hunt appeared before Judge Baker
at 10 o'clock and ciade a formal application
for a writ inquiring into Llngg's sanity,
and was refused.
Lingg was still conscious at 1 o'clock,
and presented a horrible sight It is said
that he may linger some days or weeks,

Without detracting one iota from tl e
credit which is due the republicans of
Springfield and Clark county for the splen
did victory which they hate just attained.
the Repuhlic cannot forbear making spe
cial mention of the work done by Mr. Tim
othy Liddy, member of the republican cen
tral committee from the Set entli ward. In
ordinary language. Mr. Liddy is a bustler
from some distance up the gulch. The
ward is usually hopelessly demo
cratic, but on this election the
handsome, persistent and effective
work done by Mr. Liddy stands out with
unmistakable plainness. In 1SS0. for sec
retary of state, the ward gaveMcBride 590.
Uobiuson 380 a democratic plurality of
210. This year it gate Foraxer 35ti and
1'otveII 359 a democratic plurality of only
three votes! How is that for a record! A
republican gain of 207 in twelve months,
and very much of the credit for the change
is due to Mr. Liddy.
Tim was at one time a democrat, but
upon his conversion turned all his enthu
siasm, intelligence and force the other way.
Hurrah for Tim Liddy:

Thousand Naur Bee lane Cars tlone.
The scarcity of cars is becoming a very
perplexing question, and the present era of
prosperity in railroad business indicates
that ere many weeks a genuine car famine
will prevail. The motvment of freight,
both east-bound and west-bound, is phe
nomenal and the railroads are putting all
available equipment into service. The Bee
Line is short a large number of cars in its
orders and the shortage is increasing each
day. The Bee Line recently added 1.000
cars to its equipment, but the agents are at
a loss to know what became of them. The
same complaint is made on other roails.
While the equipment is constantly being in
creased there is no material capacity gained.
The interchange of cars on the various rail
way systems becomes more extensive each
year, and equipment handled by foreign
roads is often detained while the road
presses its own cars into service. The man
who can devise a way of keeping cars with
in the easy grasp of a railroad company
will make a bigger fortune than by invent
ing 1.000 couplers.
Don't Mies It.
