It Is the most perfect form of govsmmsnt the

HOW FOE TAX BEDUOTI0H.
Thero Is one thing moro needed to put the

And it should do it " straightway."
FEEE BALLOTS.
Free ballots and fair voting aro tho first
conditions of decent politics and honest gov
ernment.
To socure these, the Stato should supply
tho ballots. At present, especially In our
large cities, the nominations are made by a
close corporation of ofilce-holdors ; the bal
lots are in tho hands of pnld party agents; tho
elections are often a inero choice betwoen
machines.
Tho offoct of this is to creato n government
by office-holders for officeholders, to cn
courago corrupt deals and trades, and to
render elections both costly and farcical.
Tho State should supply tho ballots. Elee
tiou expensoB of candidates should bo strictly
limited and subject to publicity. And tho

THE 0ABTLE QAEDEN 0BISIB.
Affairs at Castlo Garden aro evidently com
ing to a crisis. Tho Satraps have about
rcaohed tho end of their ropo. Enraged at
Heoretary FAinoniLD'a withholding of funds,
thoy threaten to suo him.
It is to bo hopod that tho needed reform at
Castle Gordon may be accomplished with tho
least posslblo temporary hardship to tho im
migrants. Secretary Faihohii.d is doubtloss
giving tho matter tho most careful consid
eration. But is it not about tlmo to hear from Mr.
Okgy'b report f Wintor is near at hand, and,
if a ohango is to bo mado, it should be mado
qulokly.
The Satraps need summary memnro.
BOODLE TBIALS POSTPONED.
District-Attorney Mabtinf. has announced
that no moro Boodlo trials will bo had until
after the 1st of January, when Mr. Tbllowb
will assumo tho direction of tho office.
With tho reoont verdict of the voters upon
these prosecutions, as interpreted by a great
majority of the people, it is no doubt con
sidered that it would be a waste of effort to
send a caso to a Jury at present.
Satrap SncpnENaoH says Secretary Faib
cniLD should not treat him and his Castle
Garden confreres as "ordinary criminals." If
tho Secretary is doing It, it is probably due to
the faot that tho conduct of tho Satraps has
been extraordinary.
That funny FonAxsn fulminates tho asser

Why, certainly. So was Gautisld for Siixb

The fatal signal at Chicago will be heard

From the great cell-noiim' nothing could be heard
except itie occntiotial cough of a man, tho sound of

tho rattling of the beavr keji In

every tlmo the harsh, grating noise went
with a rcoundlng echo through tho vast

heavy grated door leading to the cage
were omsed by the nnmorous changes mado
In the death watohes and the requirements of depu

.Mrs. Parsons stood In the outer hall of the Crim
inal Court building, tho vcrr picture of dlsoonsola
Hon and despair. Hbn did not attempt to get ad
mission for a look at her husband and naturally
Etio was not Invited. After standing around
for ten minutes between the uollce officers
und the guards she left, having spoken no word to
uny one. Her every move was watched with argua
ejes by the odlcers, who knew tho determined and
tics icrate ch .racier of the woman. Hne was silent
ly shadowed wnun slio left the building, disappear
ing In tho dlrectlun of Charles street.
In the outer Jull office thcro was a scene of rest
less activity. A full score of reporters were squat
ting in every couuelvulile Losltlon on the chairs,
tho Door, and even on the scales, reducing
the observations on the doings of the
doomed men to more or less uraphlo
accounts. All the old time deputies
Cleveland, Kllday, Hubbard, Oloason, Morgan,
lilldcbrund und oihera were on hand und beguiled
tlmo by relating incidents of former xecutluus In
Co ik County. Uccailoually a laugh would bo
raised at sumo ludicrous episode, but It quickly
died uway In the Bumbru surroundings.
August Hplcs was tho lint one to retire. Ho
threw himself upon his couch at 10. Si), clad In tho
rl innel shirt wbb h be has worn of late and a pair
of trousers, llu turned his luce to tbo wall,
so that bis featuns could not bo ob
served by the guards. Up to midnight
tlhe never move.but the irregular movemcu'a of
his cheat Indicated that ho did not sleep. What
his thoughts may have been after Unit tearful part
ing from his aged and gTlei-stncken mother and
blspasslouuto, unwedded bride, aro conjectural.
TAI.XINO UNTIL UIUNIUUT.
Parsons, Kngel und Fisher brought their chairs
close to the grated doors ol their cells and chatted
with their guard. At mlduiuht tnuy had not
jet retired. What tnuy said nobody but
tho men ti.ey talked with know, becauso the death

THE DREADFUL STORY OP BLOODSHED,
How the Pollreiuon Died Who Fought An
archists In Cblcnso Htreets.
Tbe worklngmen of Chicago were now steeped
In excitemont, Tho atmospnoro of tbe great city
waa pregnant with the promise of trouble. For
orty -elcht h ouis following Ue simultaneous strike
of U0,0U0 men und women tbe streets nad been the
scene otlltilegathenngsof angry people, ttpeechet
were being made on everr corner, from every
horsr-blouk uud In cory saloou. Iho speeches
were pitched In a key of discord. 'Ibe speakers
wero in the mam born abators, men und women
born and reared in discontent, generally, like the
arch.-Auurohh.ts, silliness, lazy mortal, littlj re
moved from beasts, lbey fed and grew fat on
agitation.
UVKDKHED OmCKK BAKRSTT AND WIFS.
There was a feeling of lnbcurily among the law
abiding people of Chicago and an uneasiness which
Increased mumontarlly. Inero were all sorts of
tumors afloat, and It waa generally believed that
trouble would begin and violence tollow tureatsat
tno Uayinarket meeting, me Chief of Police pie
pared as best ho might for trouble. Strong and
stronulr armed details or police were socrctlv
placed haru by the place ol the meeting. At 8
o'clock a large crowd nad gathered In, the llaiiu.r
ket In a dimly lighted place, near a number of
trucks, and August tiiilea started the meeting with
a sprech from a truck. Ills speech had beau a
rambling talk about the labor problem for a long
time. Then suddenly he shifted. 'He said:
What means this display of Uatllng guns, can
nons, baronets, patrol wsgons and cluns; What
means the calling out of the militia! Is It sn en
tertainment for yuu, gentlemen T 'I here are 85, coo
or 30,1X0 families lu Chicago suffering starvation
to-day because buabsnds and fathers are not men
enough to stand uo for thilr rights."
Loud cheers followed this speech sod cries of
Tho lakel" and The ropel1' were heard from
hoarse throats. .
MURDERID orriCIU DAMSIN AND WIfX.
Parsons followed In a rather moderate speech,
and Bam Flelden made the third and last address.
He was loud, blatant and reckless in bis utterance.
He asld:
We who come here to address you are Boolalls.
tlo rebels to the law. Legislation will never help
foil, men. When the rich man understands that
t Is not healthy to live among a lot of discontented
workmen we shall be able to get legislation, and
not before. "
Flslden'a speech, like the others, seemed to be
LirseJv to oousnrue time, for It Is almost an axiom
that 1110 midnight hour U pregnant with wicked
mas. It was 10. to o'clock when a squad of ISO
polluo.offlcers led a near-by station and passed
near and la view of lbs speaker. The first Una
halted opposite lb waeaa oa which he stood.
They were needed ny inspector Oonfleld and Capt.
Ward. 1 he police msroned into the crowd, sweep
ing to the pavement snd pressing It before thero.
A halt waa ordered near Fleldan's wagon, and
then Capt. Ward cried! In the came of tho Bute
of Illinois tcommsnd tbU crowd to disperse I"
MtmDiniD orricxR rkddin and wipk.
Almost simultaneously with this coinuiund a
spluttering spark of lire described an arch In the
ilcnso black air Irom the opening or an alloy und
over the speakers' wagon. The night of the spark
ended directly In the ml Jdle of tno street between
the drat two double columns of police. The mutant
t at tt struck the ground it exploded with a terrible
sullen rosr.
it was the bomb. It did fearful wotk. Twenty
nine men Ml to tne ground, mangled and groan
ing from horrible wounds. A (Jailing gun could
not have cut a wider swath than did this awful
weapon In the police lines. A scene of horror too
terrible for dew rlptlon lolloweil. The police re
covered quickly. No orders wore neeucd to Are.
In an Instant every revolver was out and every
man shot to Kill.
The crowd seemed paralyzed for a moment, but
with pistol-shots cracking like tho tatoo of u drum
uud bullets singing In the air, the mob gave one
wild yell and plunged Into the darkness, running in
all directions, yelling with rago ami fear. Men
wero knocked down and trampled under foot, and
those that wero nearest to tbe police received tho
Are of the revolvers.
In thirty seconds the streets about tho scene of
the explosion were cleared, savo for some sixty
men who hsd fallen wouuded to the ground, Tbo
centre of the street waa lull of writhing, groaning
men. Wounded men had run half a block, a
block, three blocks, and then fallen down. Others
dragged themselves Into alleyways. Trails of blood
leading from the battlc-rjeld in all directions told
of wounded Anarcmsts wno nau crawled off to tneir
dons, desperate irom tho loss of blood and deadly
fear of arrcat and vongcanco from tho police, Tho
police atatlon to which the wonnded were removed
looked like a veritable tlaughter-honse.
The excitement follow lug tnla practical test of
lbs teachings of Anarchism spread from one end of
the world to the other. After some delay six men.
Including Fielden, were arrested and Parsons vol
untarily surrendered. Bohnsebelo, the man who Is
supposed to havo actually thrown tbe bomb, escaped.
SKETCJIES OP THE ANARCHISTS.
Only One of Them Native norn, and He Was
from Massachusetts.
The events which have just culminated In the
execution of the Anarchists date back for several
years. lint the awful tragedy by which seven po
licemen were horribly mutilated and lost tbelr lives
and sixty persons were wounded by a bomb thrown
In tho midst of an Immense throng of poople the
Ilsymsrket riot occurred May 4, 1884.
For two years previous to this wholesale homi
cide Michael Bohwab, Angnst Bples, A. lb Par
sons, Bamuel Flelden, George Engcl, Adolph
Fischer. Louis Lingg and Oscar Noebo bad boen
constantly nnder tho eye of the police. They were
all foreign importations to America except Par
sons, who Is a native of Massachusetts.
August Bples, tbo leader of the Anarchists, Is a
German. Ho came to this country when sixteen
years of age, and Is now thirty-two. Ho has had
Utile schooling, but has always been a student
uftcr his own fashion. At twenty he had learned
and discarded Iho trado of saddler and tramped for
two years through tho West and South. At twenty
four bo returned to Chicago and assumed the role
of politician, and, as a leader of the Socialists, de
livered many speeches and built up that party so
that they polled over 10,000votes lor their cindl
date for Mayor, Or. Ernst Schmidt. There was
no Anarchistic party then, und Bples became man
ager of the Arbeltei ellung, the oruan of tno
B iciallsls, whlou had a largo circulation and great
Influence with tho worklngmen. Bples gradually
moulded tho paper Into an Anarchistic sheet after
tbe style of Ilerr Most's Fi-rihett. Most nod Bpics
were bosom friends and composed a mntual
admiration society. Tbe ArMbtr Zeltunu printed
Moat'a Instructions as to bow to make dyna
mite bombs, und advised the 'tolling masses"
to arm thom-ouci against their enemleB, the
wage-slave drivers " and to spare no one; nor
wlleuor ollld In the great struggle far freodom,"
which was about to occur. This course destroyed
tho tnfluenoe and decimated the circulation of the
paper, but brought many converts to the Anarch
I'llo Idea and boro Its lcgltimsto Irult in the Hay
raurkot tragedy. Bplca's hatred of the police was
lntenalded nv tiio kilting of hla good-for-nothing
younger brother, William aplea, by a policeman lu
lBtM. William was uleuder In a fight two months
before his death lu which a farmer near Chicago
waa killed, but Bides was acquitted of tho crime.
Ho was shot while resisting arrest and August
vowed vengeance upon the police. The outcome la
now a hUtorlo blot on the hlstorr of Chicago.
Bples of late -ears has managed to dross welL He
la an expert shot with the pistol, but Is so big a
coward Unit he inmost falnta ut Iho sight of blood.
He waa a single man, unless his proxy msrnage to
Nina Van Znuut counts.
Parsons is lorty.nvp years old. He edited a naocr
called the Alarm ut one time. In It be gave direc
tions for the manufacture of explosives and how
to throw bombs, and adt ocalcd tho destruction of
society. Ho was at ono time a Bcout In Texas and
U a ''dead shot." Ho baa never overburdened
himself nltu work, bat is. a lorn agitator. Ills
wife is quite aa srdeut lu anarchism, aod has ad
dressed audiences lu this city within a year iu be
half of the condemned Anarchists of Chicago.
Bhe has negro or Indian blood In her veins. Sue is
a good speaker. Is an earnest denunciator of soci
ety aod makes vague appeals to arms.
Bam Flelden waa a native of Lincolnshire. Eng
land, forty years old. He worked in a ooiton mill
from bis ninth year till ho reached hla majority.
He joined the Wesleyan Methodist Kplacopa
Church, snd was a Sunday-school superintendent
at eighteen and altorwards a preacher. He came
to America In 1SU0, lived three yeara In Clevelaud,
and since 18(10 lu Chicago. Fleldon was the bright
est of tho Anarohlsts and had a woebegone little
wife, who suffered terribly during tbe strain of
the past month.
(le irgu bngrl waa born tn Cassel, Hesse, in 1839,
and came to America In 1878. He has always been
a bodalltt of tho violent type and was business
manager of the Arbelter-Ztmuy.
Michael Schwab was a native of Bavaria, thirty
four years of age. He waa fairly well eduosted,
und learned tho bookbinder's trade In Germany,
becoming u German Socialist lu lNl'J. He indicted
himself on America In 18T0, living u) car or two at

A NEW PLAY AT THE MADISON SQUARE.
A. M. Palmer's admirable company presented
'The Martyr" to a large audience at the Madi
son Square Theatre last night, and If the play is
not exactly of the sort that the patrons of the eoiy
llttlo house expect to und, It Is certainly worth
seeing-. As before stated two other versions ot
" The Martyr " have been seen In this city, bat In
both cases a star has been conspicuous and the rest
of tho company hopelessly stupid. "The Mar
tyr " Is extremely emotional, bnt the emotion Is all
wronir. It ought not to be thero, It could easily be
prevented, and consequently sympathy cannot '
be Indiscriminately glvsn to Mme. de Moray.
This lady discovers that her mother has sn tlllgltl.
mate son, by the visit of that young man, who de
mands money for silence. Tne brother and sister
aro Been together snd the husband oh I ldlotle
theatrical husband becomes Jealous. Then Mme.
do Moray, rather than say who her visitor really Is,
assorts that be Is her lover. The husband and wife
separate. There Is plenty of misery snd I
desolation, and tho martyr eannot 1
complain that she has dono badly from the stand- j
point of wretchedness. Mo one can thoroughly
sympathize with this woman. Tho world Is miser- I
able enough. There Is no need for Mme. de S
Moray to make It worse, when a few words spoken ,"
to her husband, whoso confidence she could com- I
mand, would have set things right. Mrs. Agnes
Ilooth was Mine, de Moray, and sho did , JM
all she could for tho misguided M
