A republican over in Iowa picked
Heed's pocket of $15. He was trying
to get bark a portion o( the steal tbat

tbe McKinley abomination.
Judges and clerks of election should
see to it tbat every requirement

If tbe people will read what Mr.
Springer said last night upon the ques
tiort of free sugar so-ca'led they will
see the delusion that tbe supporters of
tbe McKinley bill bave been pointing to
since the bill went into effect.
Books tbat ordinarily educated people
can read are taxed coming into this
country. If they are written in Hebrew,
or Sanscrit, or Chinese, or Choctaw, or
Volapuk, they are admitted free. This

Mr. Oest voted against the free coin
, age of silver. This was against tbe
wishes of his constituents. He never
..' gave any reason for this outrageous con-
v duct, nor can he ever elve a satisfactory
one. The people generally are benefitted
-. by sliver free coinage as against the Wull

Those who do not vote tbe democratic
ticket next Tuesday will be giving a vote
for irresponsible government. If tbe house
should be republican, a United Slates
senator will be chosen, of whom tbe peo
ple know nothing. If tbe republicans
obtain tbe power to return a senator and
should choose Farwell he will not be
amenable to tbe people, and yet be will
represent over half tbe state. It will be
the same with any other republican. Tbe
views of Oeneral Palmer are known, and
be should be chosen. Consequently, the
voters should elect both Vinton and Wil
son to the legislature and this they can
do by giving them a full and equal sup
It wss refreshing to bear Mr. Springer
calling off tbe much boasted free list last
night. Tbe republicans keep telling,
"look at our large free list." And this
free list Is a curious one consisting of
ach articles as acorns, and acids, and
camphor, and liquorice and burr stones
and a nnmber of things which do not
effect tbe vital Interests of the people.
Clothing, and food, and household goods,
and farming implements and building
material bave all been highly taxed. Burr
tones are free because nobody wants to
use them. When a man wanti a coat
and cannot buy it, under tbe McKinley
law, be can chew on an acorn. The coat
is taxed; the acorn Is free.

Chicago, Oct. 81. Noah J. Swenson
was literally ground to pieres bortly
after noon yebterjay iinilur the flying
crank of tbe big engine in thoplmtof
tbe Western Poring SSupp y co-upany, at
H4 West Chicago avenue. Shordy after
noon Henry Lundatadt went into the en
gine room on an errand. There had been
for sometime a friendly rivalry as to which
was the bent wrestler, n l as kooo as they
saw each other they began to liaotor for a
wrestle. In a moment the two men were
struggling over the slippary floor, trying
their strength and skilL So intent were
both men on the outcome of the match
that neither saw the big envine lis they
Staggered across tbe slippery floor toward
It, locked in each other's embrace. Sud
denly Swenaon placed both bands on Lun
ta'U'a shouMers, and by a herculean
effort of strength freed himself from
the crushing embrace of bia opponent's
Fatal Slip of the Foot.
LundsiaH rallied in a moment and
jumped at bis antagonist to renew the at
tack. Swenaon wheeled, as if to get away
from the eugitie, which wan dangerously
near. His foot elippel in the oil and
grease, and he pitched forward toward
tbe swifily revolving crank. The huge
piece of iron bit him a crushiu. blow in
the bead, and he was thrown violently
into tbe pit beneath tbe machinery. Swen
roii screamed with agony and fear as he
saw tbe deadly crank shoo' tug down
with terrific momentum to tear him to
pieces He made one feeble effort to es
cape, but quicker than a flish it was on
him, crushing his bones like glass.
Horrible Work of the t rank.
Horrified at the fearfnl predictment of
his lri n.l. l.iiustadt jumped to bis aide
and triod to puli him out of the pit. but
tbe crank came down again and again,
tearing and griuding poor Swenson's vi
tals at every revolution. In a moment the
body was a eliapeless, unrecognizable
mass of torn flesh and broken bones.
Lunstadt cried for assistance, and the eu
giueer, who was in the boiler room, ran in
and stopped the bioo ly work of th en
gine by shutting effstt-um. In a frw min
utes tbe room was tiiied by curious work
ingmen, who crov (led around the death
pit to l Hk Ht the mangled buly of Swen
son. Too Sickening for Strong Men.
Tbe sight whs so (shocking that several
of the men fain'ed aud bad to be carried
out into the yard The wall just beyond
the pit whs bespattered with S-vensou's
life blood, whicii the crank threw out in
a crimson spray. On the floor were shreds
of flesh which had been torn from he
body. When 'he imtrol crew at the West
Chicago Avenue Police starion arrived in
response to a telephone message the offi
cers in lifting the remains out of tho pit
and placing them on a stretcher witnessed
a horrible sight. The intestines bad been
forced through the dead man's back, the
brains were scattered a.l over the pit, and
bis skull was crushed to a thousand
A Ghastly Mass.
Every shred of flesh and every piece of
bone was carefully picked up aud placed
beside tbe blood' mass that reposed on
the srretcher. Then the whole was car
ried out to the wagon and taken to the
Milwaukee avenue morgue. Lundstadt
was placed under arre-t and locked up in
tbe Chicago avenue police station, where
be will be -held pending an investigation
by a coroner' jury. He frankly to'.d the
police the enrira story of tbe horrible af
fair, and Capt. Kipley, who conducted
bis examination, is of the opiuion tbat be
is telling the truth.

bell addressed a large gathering of the
Democrats of tbe Eighth congressional
