Chicago Saturday evening, and
hearing the report of the assassina-
ton of Maror Carter II. Harrison,
hi well developed reportorial in
stinct, which has not deserted him
since abandoning the profession, led
him to take more interest in the af
fair than he otherwise would, and he
was thrown in a war not onlr to ob
tain a pretty accurate account of tbe
khooting. which is told in detail else
where iu the telegraph columns, but
learn something of the assassin
whom he aw. and "who. after com
mitting the deed," said Mr. I Vclle
to a rejHjrter who" met him last even
ins, walked eoolv from the house
o the Ih-splaine street station, and
no one is lug there l-ut the desk ser
geant, he said to him, 1 have killed
the maror and I want vou to lock me
up.' . The sergeant thinking I he man
was crazv told him to sit down, and
then telephoning to see if the mayor
had really lcen shot, he found it was
true and locked up Prendersast.
The uews spread like wild'
fire, and rwioti it was known
all over Chicaffo that Maror llarri
son had been killed, and that the mur
derer had beeu hteked up in the lV-s
plaines street station. A squadron
of Hiice numbering ait-ut w pro
ceeded to the city hall where an im
mense crowd had gathered and mak
ing a pathwar through it stood with
uplifted clubs. Soon the clang of the
patrol In?1I sounded and a patrol
wagon, containing 12 officers and the
prisoner, dashed up to the edge of
the cr-jwd and the men alighted
Cries were heard on all sides, but
none dared advance on tbe little
band. Marching within their mid!
with four officers on cither side of
him. and four in front and behind
him. the prixoiicr wa taken into the
building to luMH-ctor Shea. As he
walked through the crowd Prender
gat kept his head bowed, and did not
look to either side, neither dot he
appear to Iks a hardened criminal or
a tngli character. He wore a light
overcoat with the collar turned up.
Taken on the whole he was rerr neat
in apjH'arance. When taken to In
cctor Shea's oflice he declined at
first to answer anr questions, cither
a o his name, hi home or his mo
tive. H- n a stolid and indifferent,
and only spoke when he heard the
remark "thai lie had had an interview
w ith the mayor. vben he simply said
-I slid not . Then he lapsed into bis
silent mood again and sat nervously
twirling bis hat and biting his lips
which quivered constantly, showing
the excitement the prisoner sought
to hide. AtMiut leing present in
the little room it wa cleared and

Kx-Maror Ht-urr Carse advanced
some sensible doctrine on the topic of
the reckless use of revolvers, vctcr
dav in conversing with a group of
friends on the subject of Mavor
Harrison's assassination. Our pro
hibition friends tell .us the;.- wish to
stop the manufacture and sale of in
toxicant "said Mr. Carse in order
to stop crime. But thce prohibi
tionists seem to overlook the ques
tion of the nnlimited and unrestricted
sale and use of the weapon of crime
To Im- sure there are laws prohibiting
the carrying of weapons concealed,
but there are no statutory mean so
far as I know, of getting at the jteo
ple who plaee them in the hands of
irresponsible persons. Now if the
wav to top the use of liiiuor is to
forbid the manufacture of it, why
not apply the same Jaw to the manu
facture and sale of lire arms. I le
licre such a course would le much
more sensible and operate in a much
more effective and far reaching de
gree as a preventative of crime than
the prohibition in which many of
our slates have U-en fruitlessly" en
gaged for years.
l-t our state adopt laws limiting
nud restricting the manufacture of
fire arms, and -rhen place such re
quirements on their sale that only
responsible people officers ot the
law I mean can get them, and von
w ill go a lon way toward stopping )
crime. 1 be way to slop the nse ot

out of the hands of dangerous peo
ple. To do this, every man selling

The Democrat is mistaken as to any

employment of labor. The Rock Isl.
