Harrison is free of all grand jury in

Coroner's jury is concerned and has
la en discharged from custody in con
nection with any responsibility for the
wholesale loss of life in the Iroquois
theater lire. This was done by Judge
Tuthill. who declared that the mayor
was in no way whatever guilty or lia

Mayor Surrenders Himself.
This is the result of n decision by
the mayor on the advice of counsel
to sue out a writ of habeas corpus
for his iuimediate release from cus
tody. Promptly following the decision
the mayor, accompanied by bis bonds
men and an attorney, tip eared at the
criminal court building, where .Mayor
Harrison formally surrendered himself
to Sheriff I 'arret! ai-d thus nullified
the bond of Jsi.'xm given in court to

Judge Tuthill. before taking up the
stated that the mayor ;
ha-1 been held by the coroner without
warrant of law, and offered to dis
charge the mayor on the legal point
that no formal charge had been made
against" him. but Attorney A. S. Trude
and Corporation Counsel Tolir.an. on
behalf of Mayor Harrison. declined this
method of procedure. They said the
mayor held that there was no evi
dence uMn which to hold him, and
that he was not seeking release on a
technicality. They insisted that Judge
Tuthill read the testimony given be
fore the coroner relating to the mayor.
In fore the judge passed on the case.
The judge consented and read the tes
timony given by Williams. Musliani
and the mayor before the coroner.
Then he gave his decision entirely ex

Ciovinior Parked Hall.
n a meeting lielil in a hall capable
of bedding S.0ii() people and well filled,
the governor of the state was told in
words not to be misunderstood that
machine tactics would no longer pre
vail in Illinois, lie had the hall pack
ed with his friends, but he am! t hex
had tei lisie'n epiietly when it was said
to them that the next republican
.'laic ticket of Illinois would be mim
ed by a majority of the re-publican
utters of the stale.
The scene was a dramatic one. (iov.
Yates had told of a plan he had where
by "primaries c-i nld be made' fair."
He was afraid the slate' committee
wnnld not adopt it. but if it only
would much good might result. lie
offered it as a suggestion in the right
c.'iree-tion and in the meantime had
much to say about his devotion to the
flag. Tlie result took him off Ins feet.

man took him at his word. They told
him only too plainly that fair primar

spoke of the e-vil done the party by

cult in words which had never before
been i:sed in a "love feast."
Need Only Say the Worel.
Mr. Deneen told the governor how
he could have fair primaries by say
ing the word, and Sherman remarked
that 1 he flag was net the special her

advice to the goernor.
The latter was. in poker parlance.

anyone' who sail anything against a

they were republicans.
So the "love feast" was closed.
