CiiiCAao.JMay 5. [ Special Tclegram.J
The occuncnces of last night have created a
tremendous sensation. Nothing else is
talked of and tlio greatest excitement and In
dignation prevails. Forty-four names of the
wonndeu fill nine full pages ot the register at
the county hospital. In tlio conIdor before
0 o'clock was a group of men and women ,
friends most of them of the police ofllccis ,
anxious to inqitiie alter or to see them. The
attendants wcio haggard and excited. Tlio
first patrol biought the dead body of Olllcer
Dlegun licie a little alter 10 o'clock. From
that on until 0 o'clock this morning the am
bulances and police pntiol wagons weie con
stantly arriving with wounded. Tlio whole
stalf of phjsicinns nnd attendants was called
In nnd everybody was devoted to the care of
the Injured. A little tab is Kent at the desk
of the men who aie in a prccaiiuus
condition. Marvellous ns it may
seem , nil of these nro police
olllcets. Thcio are eight civilians in tlie
wards , and not one is fatally or even salons-
lyluiit. The entile police fotce of the city
is on duty , and should they come In contact
with tlie mob to-day
TIneo bundled of them have been armed
with Spiinglield lilies. August Spies Is
under atiest. Ho was captuted by the police
at S o'clock this moining. The anarchist
and incendiary editor of the Aibcltei-
/Ccituiur , who was the first ono to addicss
the meetlnu nt Desplainos nnd Randolph
sheets , who occupied the wagon fiom which
the dynamite bomb was thiown which did
such bloody woik last night , who was one of
the spcakcis at the mob meeting on the prairie
near McCoimick's Monday nlteinoon ,
whoso wotds Inflamed the mob
until It was icady to bum down the
gicat factoiy , had tlio tcmeiity to appear in
the editorial looms of his paper this morning.
Hete ho met his hi other and a man named
Schwab , associate editor of tlio paper , who
weie his associates m these lucondlary har
angues. They met at 107 Fifth avenue to
talk over the scenes of last night and wcio
taken by detective ? to the Central station
and placed under lock and ley. : As tlio news
spread through tlio city that tlie leaders of
the nlhllNtlc mob weio safely caged , ex-
piesslons of the liveliest satisfaction weio
heard on oveiy baud. Spies and his friends' ,
when the police chaigcd tlio mob ,
and could not bo found until this morning ,
though earnest search was made lei thorn all
thiough tlio night. Just what chaigo will bo
lodged against them lias not at piesent been
deteimined. The Ai belter Xoitunc , the or

It was thcio that the five Cential station de

tlio responsible editor , and when thodotec-

Michael Sclia b , an associate editor of the

The entire dislilct In the lumber region ,
rom Twenty-second street to Western

of agitators , socialists and strikers. This Is
loubtless wholly owing to the fact that the
Kjllce are to-day aimed with rifles , and have
strict orders to compel nil loungers nnd lilfcrs
o "move on. " At Eighteenth street and
Center avenue , the headquarters of the

CHICAGO , May 5. T'ho oxcltoment of Jim

contemplated that an outbreak of such
serious piopoitions nnd ntioelouschoj.ictcr
could be meditated bv any tlasa In the com

morning nio of utter nnd nhhorrunt condemnation -
nation of the assault uindo on the police.
The occunences of Mor.dny and last nlglit

ho police came from tbo same direction , and
t Is surmised that the criminals obtained
their guns and made the socialist hall the
rendezvous , and from whciico they proceed
ed to make their assault , They wore conceal
ed behind boxes and barrels on the sidewalk ,
evellugthelr gnus nnd tiring during the con
fusion following the explosion of
ho bomb. Parsons was seen In
the place accompanied by his negro
Wife for only n moment and then disappear
ed with other anarchists. The police searched
for the tlneo men nil night , but 'did not
succeed In finding them. A lltllo after 8
o'clock this moinlng nil thrco were found in
n cloo loom In tlto office of the Arboitor-Xel-
tnng newspaper , at 107 Fifth avenue. They
wcio In consultation when the ofllccrs came
upon them. They exhibited alarm , but made
no resistance. They were taken quietly to
thn central police station a block away , and
up to 0 o'clock the public had not been made
aware of thoiraiicst They are kept closely
guarded and no oun Is permitted to see them.
His not known what , If any , charges have
been made against them , and what is the ex
act policy tlm city authorities Intend to pur
sue. They hau' in evidence against Spies his
utmided but Inllammntoiy utterances In his
newspaper , In which ho has within tlio past
few days urged dynamlta warfare against tlio
police nnd all roKitlaily constituted authori
ties. His ditcut connection and that of his
companions in the events of the past few
days appears very clear. Mayor Hat i Ison reasserts -
assorts liis ability
In Chicago without outside aid. He argues
that the occineiiec of lust nlclit could not bo
foreseen and \\nsunparol el led even In Am
erican history. Tlie entiio police torce Is on
duty to-day nnd Its members arc appaiently
In lirst class condition. While their duties
have boon arduous , tlio fact that tlio depart
ment is equipped \\lth numerous patrol
wagons , they nave been able to leach scenes
of dboulcr without the fatigue consentient
unon a sliictly marching body.
The police nro nccoidcd by
the ontno picss the most unstinted
piaiso tor their discretion , bravery nnd excel
lent discipline. The only published criticism

the assemblage last nlglit nnd similar other
ones dm Ing the piccedlngthrccor four years.
Thus far to-day no piochunntlon has been is
sued forbidding nil futitio gatherings , but it
is assumed by the piessthls will and for some
time any assemblings by tlio red Hug advo
was inaugurated this morning. Seventeen
bundled men cmplovcd in tlio Deerlng Har
vester works stopped without notice or warn
ing of any character and without making
any demand. Whether they have been In
lluenced by the recent liotous events directed
against woikingmen icmalning at their
posts Is not known. The nianageis of the
winks asked for police piotcctlon. Tlio
woiks are located in a aistilct largely popu
lated bv foieign speaking people.
The inilioad situation was further
complicated this moining by thn stiike

They had planned to , shadow her , hoping
that shn would make some appointment with
her husband , so that'the latter could bo cap
tured. ' i
Lain 111 the nfteinoon. the ollleers burst
open the private desk ofxPnrsons at his place
ot business , and .in doing so found that
the drawcis contalaed a largo quantity of-
powder , luse ahd' ether 'explosives. ' Ono

of tlio kind thatIs used in heavy blasting ,
was six inches long and ono and n halt

time of vviltine. Scarcli was made lor him
at his home , but ho was not found. His mul
atto wife told the police that her husband
was so well hid that tlieio was no danger of
his being found.
A secret plot among Bohemian anarchists
m the southwestern uccilon ot the city to
start incendiary fires In the lumber district
to-night , was revealed to the police by n man
In the employ ot the detectives late this after
noon. Tlio plan Included pieparations to
cut the hose ot the fiio department and dis
able their machinery when they responded to
the alarm. The preparations of the police
are ample to cope with incondlailes. An ex-
tia lire tug will bo sent up the river and tlio
distiict will be carefully patrolled. The
police at Pinman stieet aie on the alert , and
any attempt on the pait of the Iiicendlailcs
will meet with summary dealing.
The indignation and concern ot the gen
eral public respecting tlie atrocious occur-
laiices of hist night have been no wise les
sened as the day passed.
The prompt action of the authorities In ar
resting thrco ot the chief conspirators , and
in accumulating evidence w hich it is believed
will fix a great crlmo upon them , has called
forth unstinted praise. All oulinaiy places
of business aie open , but theie is an almost
entire cessation in all oidtnaiytiansactions
of business. Men are discussing the event
in all Its scilous aspects. Major Haiiison
has been assured by nil clnsses of citi/.cns of
their detciinitiation to aid him in every pos
sible way.
Hon. K. B , Wnslibtirne , ex-minister to
France , remaiked that ho had not known
dining the carnage enacted by the commune
In Pans , so utterly cowardly and atiocious a
minder as lhat of last night. If tlieio Is any
law to reach the perpetiators and instigntois
of the nlTair , it is now positive that eel tain
death avvalts them.
Mayor Hanison tills nfleinoon , niter con
sulting with his department olhceis , pub
lished the follow Ing pioclamatlon :
Whereas , Uieat excitement exists among
the people of t'als good city , growing out ot
labor troubles , vv hlch excitement Is Intensified
by open defiance of the guardian's peace bv
a body of lawless men , under puitcnse of aid
inghibpilng men , but who aio ically en-
avorlnt to desnoy all laws.
rVnd , Whereas , Last nlitht , thpso mon , by
the jusnof weapons novtn iesoitid ; to In clvf-
ll/.ed lands , except in times of war or for
revolutionary ptn poses , caused itreat blood
shed among the citizens and ofllceis ot tlio
municipality who weio .simply in the per-
lornmiico of their duty.
And.Whereas , Tho. city authorities propose
to protect life and pioporty nt all tin/aids ,
and In doing so will bu .compelled U bieak
up all unlawful and dangerous gatlieilngs.
And Whereas , Even' when mon pi arioso
to meet for lawful tmrposcs , bad men will at
tempt to mingle with them , aimed with cow
ardly missiles , for tlio purpose of bilnging
about bloodshed , thus eudaugcilng innocent
persons. " 1 '
Therefore. I , Carter JI. Hanlson , Mayor ot
tlie city of OhIcaKoldotHejebr proclaim that
tlio gatherings ot people In crowds or proces
sions on sheets and public places of tlm city ,
are dangerous , undi .cannot bo permit-
led , and orders liavo been issiibd
to prevent all suchcashorlnu's , and to
break' up and idlsnerse all ciowds.
Topiovcnt Injury to Innocent persons , I
nrgo all law abiding ixjoyjo to quietly attend
to their own ntudis nnd pot meet In crowds.
It police order any gatherings to ilispeise
and they bo not obflyod , all persons so dlso-
hex ing are to bo treated as uvv hi takers and
will surely Incur the penalty of their diso
I further assure the good people of Chlcairo
that I believe the police can piotect their
lives and propcity nnd Iho good name of
Chicago , -and will do so.

Its Volco Rained In Condemnation or
Tuesday's Illot.
CinoAao , May / > . The following are some
of the comments of the Chicago papers :
The Evening Journal says : There can bo
but one sentiment among all classes In view
of the outrage and crime last nlglit. Hhoit ,
sharp and decisive mcnsmcs must
bo dlicctcd against the mob whatever
It gathers. The most pressing need is for an
adequate force of United States troops who
ha\o been taught to shoot and who shoot to
kill. This revolt ngninst Amcilean law and
civlll/.allon should bacuishcd without dclnv
and withoutmcicy.
The Dally , News says : Let thcvo men who
defiantly boast of their law lessness , bo made
to fed the full penalty ot a long outraged
law. Their crime appeals moio despicable In
view ot their own peisoiial eowaidlco after
having involved theli dupes in tumble . Let
there be no teinpoii/.lng with their followers
should any ol them attempt a continuation
of last night's lawlessness. Let there be no
firing In the nlr. In such times leniency to
ward lawlessness IsuU Injniy totlielnw-abld-
The Mall says : The ruffians , Parsons and
Soles , and the other rntlian , Fieldun , should
bo made to leel the chastisement of an In
sulted and outraged people. Not one ot the
leading anaichlsts , not one of the whelps
who has helped to bring down upon us the
condition ot tctrorlsm w hlch eveiy where pre
vails in Chicago , should bo treated with
leniency or consideration. Stamp out the In
famous set.
Tlie Inter-Ocean says : Thooccuireiices of
last nlglit show how far the ngitatois of
Spies' and Poisons' school aiepicpared togo.
Tlio rcsoit of piolossional lioters to such
methods calls for Immediate action on the
pait of the citizens. The nuthoilllcs nio
doing all that ino nuthoiltles can do , but
something more is needed. Strikes and
strikers ntc lost sight of now ; tlieio can bo
no difleiences between employer and em
ploye when It comes to condemnation of
such outrages as that ot hist night. The la-
boi ing men must disentangle themselves fiom
the circumstances that have been thiown
ibottt them by the anarchists and socialists.
They are less than men If they will penult
Ihemsolvcs to bo used in any way
to foiwaul the schemes of the
enemies of society and government.
Oniccr Mnildon Follows n Suplcious
Character , and llccclvcs His
Death Wound.
CmcAcioMay5. A lioniblo outcome of the
excitement lesultlng liom last night's ilots
occurred this evening shortly after 0 o'clock.
Two officers had boon stationed on Dcs-
plaines stieet viaduct near Ihe Chicago , Mil
waukee & St. Paul freight yards , to piovent
crowds fiom gatliciing and Idlers from cny-
inz men at woik In the place of the stiiking
fieight handlers. The ollicers noticed two
imrticulaily suspicious looking individuals
slowly cioss the viaduct and enter a saloon
on DCsplanes street near Cairoll av-
enuo. OlUcer- Michael Madden , of
Desplnines street station who was somewhat
closer to the saloon than the othertvvo policemen -
mon , was given the signal to keep his oycs
on the ugly pair that had attracted attention.
At tills moment niuvolvcr wns thrust Irom
Ihe saloon door by one ot the men and a shot
filed into the street in the dhectlon ot the
olllccis. Policeman .Madden stepped biiskly
to the saloon door and at once grappled with
the man who had the revolver , while two
other olllccis hurried to Ills aid. Inthescuf-
llo the man with the levolvcr picsscd the
mur/Io ot his weapon to Madden's bieast and
fired. Madden teclcd but steadying himsclt
almost instantly brought his own
revolver Into pioxlmlty with his
assailant's head and pulled the trigger.
Madden and his piisoncr , locked in each
others arms , reeled to the floor , just as of
ficers Daley and Harnett , i mining , reached
the saloon. Tlio companion of Madden's as
sailant had vanished , lioth Madden and Ids
prisoner were taken lo the county hospital.
Doctors say that the man wns somewhat
under tlio influence of liquor and the result
ot his Injury cannot yet bo told. A paper
found on his pci son shows that his name is
John Loelfelliaidt , of Englewood. Ofllccr
Madden's wound is uioital.

CHICAGO , May 5. In an interview to
night August Spies , in a cell at tlio cential
station , claims that hn attended hist evening's
meeting reluctantly , nnd went moro to calm
the crowd titan with any oilier intention.
Said ho : "I consider tlio throwing of that
bomb a most iiiational proceeding.
It should not have been done
under Iho circumstances. I have
no objection to the use of dynamite. People
have at lived at a certain state vvlieio they
will do all kinds of violence. We have pie-
dlcted these things to come. They vvno
n necessity. Yes , I Imvo advocated In my
speeches the use ol foice. "
"Aro yon In favor of killing police with
dynnmitoV" wns asked.
"Well , Hint all depends on clicumstaiic.es.
If yon have an enemy you must kill him !
1 look upon police as icpicscntntlvcs of the
capitalistic class. As a class the police do
something which , in my opinion , is antagon
istic to the wclfaio ot society , and thbiefoie ,
they must bo removed. "
"You do not caio lor laws , cither , Mr.
Spies ? "
"lam opposed to the present laws ; Iain op

"Now Unit yon aio In this place , do you con

"Of course , what else would you call ItV"
ie nl led Spies with a foiccd laugh. Then he
added : "No I nm no maityr we tuo all

Spies was appaieittly disinclined to talk
much fuithcr , liutbuloio the clo.su suggested
that the dynamite found in tlio Aibultcr
