The crowd was orderly anil the few police
men under whose protection the ceremony
took place found little to do beyond keep

closure. All or Them I nrrign Horn.
It, was a rrowil of Germans, Poles and
Bohemians. Scarcely nn American was to
be seen, and the exercises were carried on
mainly in foreign tongues. The character
of the speeches could not be called incendi
ary, but rather that of mild protest
nir'ainst t'u existing order of government.
The riiur.ng oratory of the days when the
red llau waved where it pleased was gone,
and all the er.thusi ism the orators could
bring fron theirauditors was an occasional
outburst of applause not very certain in
its sound. A marked feature of the
oratory, however, ami one which was most
lilieraiiv applauded, was a showing of
utrong liuiinxsity toward Judges (Jury and
Cirinnell and other o.'licers of the law who
had U-en prominent in the celebrated
A Preliminary I'aratle.
The exercises nt the grave were preceded
by a short parade i:i the city. The entire
ceremony was under the auspices of Mat
thias Schmwlinger. president of the
Pioneer and Supiort association, which
has made the monument a possibility and
which, ever since the celebrated execution
in the yard of the Cook county jail, has
supported the widows and children of the
five anarchists. M. Schmedinger opened
the exercises with a few very temperate
remarks. The monument was formally
tendered to the association by Sculptor
Weinert. Then came the Knglish speech
by William Holmes.
A Metuuure to the Kffete Denpot.
He said in part: "We invite the noble
lords and ladies from other lands who are
sojourning in our city palaces, whose titles
t." great possessions are founded upon
tvrnnn.v and roliliery, -who proudly boast
that neither they nor their ancestors have
ever been contaminated by labor or by
trjulexve invite these aristocrats to view
the monument which loyal hearts and
readv hands have raised up. Let them
paze upon the stern figure of their Xeme
nis and read in her defiant attitude the
prophecy of lalior's deliverance. Long
have they feasted and fastened on the
spoil wrung from the laloring poor, but
the days of their triumph are already
WARNING FOR AMERICANS.
The iotMl Anarchical Time is Still Cominir
The t nveiling.
"We invite also the rich of our own
country and city, the wealthy toadies to
European aristocracy who have recently
given us a practical demonstration of their
itching for royal recognition. We ask
those recreant Americans to look uion the
work which the friends of these murdered
men have dedicated. Our comrades peti
tioned them, appealed to them, almost
prayed to them to hearken to the agonized
cries of the oppressed jioor; but they
heeded not the petition, the prayers, nor
the warnings of those whom they have
wronged. There will come a time when
they will rcmenilier the warning prophecy
of one whom they strangled.
Dr. Ernst .Schmidt, the veteran socialist
of t'hicago, delivered the German oration.
The sieaker refrained from any direct
criticism of the proceedings in the anarch
ist trial, but he gave a very striking para
phrase in adverting to the celebrated
trial of Jean Calas, of Florence.
The red hood which enveloped the mon
ument was drawn aside by young Alliert
Parsons, who was directed by his mother,
the widow of Albert Parsons. The design
is striking. I'pon a massJve surface,
supported by a firm base, rests a rectangu
lar plinth. Directly in front of the plinth
stands a heroic group in bronze. The sen
timent emlxidied in this group was found
by the culptor in Freiligrath's poem "The
The cent ral figure in the group repre
sents a woman in an attitude expressive
of defiance. Her right arm, with clinched
hand, is crossed over her breast, while the
left hand is placing a laurel wreath upon
the brow of her champion, who' lies
stricken at her feet. IJeneath the form of
the prostrate man fronds and sprays of
palms are strewn. The woman's figure
stands out in bold relief, full of expres
sion, and is powerfully conceived and ar
tistically executed. On the base of the
monument the last words of August Spies
are inscribed: "The day will come when
our silence will be more powerful then the
voices you are throttling today.".

Milwaukee, June 28. The special elec
' tion for mayor resulted in a victory for
John C. Koch, the Republican candidate,

nothing involved in the election. This is

Washington, June 20. Clerks in all the
official departments of the government
here have received A new set of questions
which they are required to answer for the
information of the congressional commit
tee which has jnst entered on what is said
to be a two-year's investigation into the
workjngs of the executive departments of
the government in Washington. The in
quiries propounded have struck the major
ity of the clerical force with mingled con
sternation and amusement. The intrica
cies of consanguinity and affinity they are
required to unravel are quite beyond the
powers of many of them.
lecidedly Personal Queries.
The first two questions propounded on
these topics are comparatively easy. Each
government employe is required to declare
whether he has a son or daughter, an uncle
or aunt, a cousin, nephew or niece, or
grandfather or grandmother in the ser
vice of the Washington departments. After
he or she has overcome these preliminary
difficulties ; it is (hen made necessary
for each to declare whether there is iu the
government service any great grandfather
or great grandmother, or great grandson
or great granddaughter, and then follows
a In-wildering list of great uncles' sons
and great uncles' daughters, great uncles'
grandsons and great uncles' granddaught
ers, and cousins of every other degree.
Worse Than a Complicated Marriage.
After these come questions as to the de
grees of affinity, and these are most per
plexing of all." After the gentle female
clerk has declared upon honor that she
has no grandson-in-law,no granddaughter-in-law,
or no gramlnephew or grand niece
in-law in any of the government depart
ments, she or her fellow clerk of the oppo
site sex is required to make declaration
that there is now to the liest of her or his

Tough on the Southerners.
It is the abstrusive ca'cul: t ions of hered
ity involved in the answers to these last
questions, particular nmonr clerks from
Kentucky, Virginia and Georgia, and
other states where family ties are of per
plexing intricacy, which, it is said, is

RECORD BROKEN HALF
Itoundless Winn the American Derby at
Chicago In 2:30.
Chicago, June 26. The great American
Derby was won by J. E. Cushing's brown
colt Boundless with the renowned "Snap
per" Garrison in the saddle, after a delay at
the post of one hour and thirty-seven min
nutes, in the remnrkable time of 2:30 ffcit,
thus beating the previous best time for the
Derby of 2.63. The Keene colt St. Leon
ards, with 3'aral up, finished second, three
lengths tKihind, and the. much-touted
Clifford captured third money, while Don
Alonzo who had leen much vaunted, was
twelfth. It was the greatest Derby ever
run in this country, and the honors be
long mostly to Garrison, who rode the
race of his life. Fully 75,(N10 people,
crushed and jammed into almost a com
pact mass, screamed with excitement at
the conclusion of the event, and Mr. Cush
ing was almost forced into the judges'
stand by the admiring "pushers" who
wanted a speech.
It was too late for any frills on the part
of the St. Paul man, and he contented him
self with flourishing the certified check for
$.-0,X0 that the Washington Park club
gives to the winner. ,. The crowd surged
into the track ami Harrison was almost
smothered so anxious was each sport to
grasp his hand. The delay nt the start
was caused by the fact that 50,000 was at
stake and encq jockey was anxious to get
the advantage. The result was that prol
ably a second was clipped from the time,
and Lambley on Don Alonzo and Garrison
were fined 8250 each, Fred Faral $250 if he
rides again at the park and Doggett set
down from the meeting ami fined 25).

For Stealing a Senator's Hoots.
"You are a poor creature," said the
judge. "You ought to have known better
than to steal. Only rich men can take,
things without paying for them. And'
then you must steal iu the great town of
Windsor, nnd the lioots of a great man like
Senator Chase, the greatest man anywhert
around. If you wanted to steal why didn't
you steal in some little town in NewIIamp''

must steal from him when he was on the
way to Washington, and perhaps tno only,
lioots he had. You might have compelled
him to wait until some shoemaker madfr

keep their promises. And perhaps by the
delay somi important treaty might have

to say why you should not lie sentenced to

"I have got to say that you seem to know

what I do!" piped the prisoner. t
"That is a sound observatiiin," said the
judge, "and I will give you only one month
