at the Leland Hotel at noon t select persons
to address the Governor during the alternoon

were followed br George C Schilling who pr
Hinted a petition from the Iron Moulders
Union of Chicago to which two JondeT
ceased policemen belonged asking clemency
A onrr TiLT D OL
A telling point by the moray seekers w
made in the afternoon almost at the onUot
tae atmon
U Ullam Urban representing the Central Labor
Union of Chicago over 10000 worklngmen
was addressing the Governor The shooting
of Begley by the Pkikorton men at the stock
yards was Instanced br Urban as a case where
a murder was committed by a member of the
1 ommUe mombr
Pinkprton Agency In the employ of the Pack
ore Union and the controlling spirits of the
Ue eplrt 1e
organization were not held responsible for the
crime of an individual member The le
seemingly Interested the Governor strongly
and he called for the repetition of the sentence
concerning the stock yard murder
Tho Governor seemed I possible t grow
more and more deeply impressed a the IW mo
ment fitted and the bystanders d not full t
mark the care with whloh be ordered each peti
tion carefully arranged for his future refer
ence and his solicitude In obtaining the name
address and standing of each spokesman
Gradually the friends of the condemned b
came more and more hopeful 8 the demeanor
of tbe Governor plainly showed that the mOt
thorough investigation with the broadest
views and the kindest spirit would b given t
the arguments und the petitions
A colloquy betwei Samuel Hampers Pros
olouy GmJr P
dent of tbe Central Trades Union of New York
and the Governor helped the feeling of hone
materially though just why it would b dim
cult to say Mr Compere bad reviewed tbe
history of the eight hour movement In 1615
and narrated the incidents which led up to the
strike at McCormlcks reaper works and the
meeting th Uaymarket When the Governor
met Mr Gompers as to the methods proposed
posed by the National Eighthour Convention
at Washington I lBS whether they were
peaceable lawful and fanable1Gompr
said Yea
Then sold his Excellency your object
was t reduce the hours of labor that others
might employment by peaceable means 1
M es sir
I I possible that the laboring men would
regard I as an old t their movement that a
certain political or other organization should
attempt to use force I compelling the adop
Lion of tbe eighthour plan or would force b
regarded as a retarding Influence by the work
fard1s te
Any attempt at force answered Mr Gom
per AT would b condemned There is no
doubt whatever that the bomb thrown at the
Haymarket killed the eighthour movement
The Governor asked several other Questions
as to tbe scope and Intention of the Eighthour
law That gentleman speech disavowing
totally any approval of tbeAnaroblsts theories
or methods but begging raoroy for them made
a great Impression on the audience and also
on the Governor te a
The Governor then received the relatives of
the condemned Anarchist the audience being
excluded Up to a late hour this evening tile
Governor was still holding a private Interview
with trend and relatives of the Anarchists
i He ha given no expression a to his inten
tions and it I not likely that any decision will
be given tonight I was said this afternoon
that Spless brother would lay a letter before

H As supplemental to the petition heretofore

signed by me 1 desire t say that I realize
tbat many utterances of mine in connection
with the labor agitation of the post expres
sions made under intense excitement and
often without any deliberation were Injudi
cious and immature These 1 regret bellov

protest again that I had no thought or purpose
of violence in connection with the Haymarket

prominent citizens The Governor listened to
those with tbe closest attention and talked
with them freely about the situation Mr Hal
ter nid later he was not liberty t tell all I the
Governor raid but he would say that his Ex

of the situation Tie Governor I reply to a

CC0 Nov Governor bored Anarch
late excited women crying police disgusted
everybody wondering thats the situation but
to an outsider seems clear enough that while
there I a possibility that the Governor will
commute the tonteuee of poor old Fleldon
who in some respects I worse than any of
them and of Schwab whose life is
ad le I really of no
account to himself or anybody else there will
be an execution here on Friday next and either
seven or five on the rope w b the outcome
But why Flelden 1 you ask I dont wonder
at the question as Fielden was for years the
champion spokesman boss threatener and
wholesale dealer I anathemas the gang pos
sessed Nat Goodwin was in the jail when
Fielden was brought In and beard him st > y I
am glad of it and 1 wIsh more had been killed
But that you see was a year and a half ago
and tho dead policemen were long since for
gotten But Fleldens friends have prebenUd
a petition to the Governor which seta forth h
merits a a littt > lower only than those o
angels and Judge Gary says
N Outside of what I shown In the record of
the trial there 1 the nature and private char
acter of the ma A natural love of jnstioean
impatience at undeserved suffering a im
pulsive temper and a intense love of and
thirst for the applau of h hearers made
him an advocate of force a a heroic remedy
for the hardships that the poor endure In h
own private life he wo the honest Industrious
and peaceable laboring ma In what he said
In court before sentence be was reapectfcl and
decorous His language and conduct since
have been Irreproachable There I no m
< enD that he knew of any preparation t
do the specific act of throwing the
bomb that killed Decan H does not under
stand eren now that general advice to large
masses to do violence makes him responsible
for tbe violence dOle by the reason of tat a
10 nor that being joined with others I an
effort t subvert law and order by forcemakes
him responsible for the act of those others
tending t make that effort effectual i or
be was more a misguided enthusiast than a
cm conscious o the horrible nature and
effect of his teachings and of h responsibility
therefor What shall b done I h case I
partly a question of humanity and partly a
question of State policy upon which It seems
to me action on the a of your Excellency
favorable to him 1 justifiable
Now what do you think of that 1 And on top
of this Hut Attorney now Judge GrinnsU

I law and commendable I feel tat you should

further suggestions or recommendations t
offer A to the two above named I do not
feel like putting any obstacle In the way of a
commutation of their sentence t Imprison

for to have received from Schwab a sUte
ment similar In character t tat from Fielden

Mr TtifrtiMq who assisted I the prosecution
added a word of approval and Judge Tuthlll
wrote the following
In view of tbe above statements of Judges
Gary and Grinnoll and Mr ham touching
Bidden and Bohwab and a well i consider
ation of what I myself know of the facts of the
case as affecting these two men I sincerely
recommend and hope that Executive clemency
may b extended t each of these men
Judge Jamioson added h approval and Mr
Johnson left for Springfield lost night and laid
the papers before the Governor today Judge
Gary and M Grinnell w take no steps I
favor o the commutation of any of the other
condemned men There i reason for thinking
that the Governor will b favorably impressed
with the petitions I the cases of Fielden and
Schwab and that be w commute their sen
tences to imprisonment for ll while the other
Anarchists will all hang At this writing how

sustained Mr Grinnell Ideas and declined t

to the proposition asking U In case the Crim

WASHXKOTOK Nov Commodore W 8
Schley of the Bureau of Equipment and Re
cruiting In his annual report calb ttention to
the absolute necessity two modern steam
cruising ship to take the plaee of the three
training chips now in usethe Portsmouth
Jamestown and Saratoga
Perhaps says the report there 1e no de
velopment of the modern ships quite equal to
the new highpowered machines to give them
speed and unless wa can Include the training
of firemen for these highpowered ship It
would not be overstated to say that until the
men are trained to convert the greatest
amount of coal into energy on a given grate
surface these new ships at the outset of their
cruises must lose much of their effectiveness
This would be fatal In cue of war
Legislation Is recommended which will allow
honorably discharged men to elect a home on
any of the receiving ships during the three
months within whlcn under the law they may
retallst on the ground that such legislation
would cave many valuable men to the navy
and would give them relief from the uncleanly
and miserable boarding houses of large cities
A retired list fa suggested for enlisted men
who have served in the navy thirty years so as
to put them on the same plane as enlisted men
of the army and the marine corps and a tee
ommendation ls mod that citizenship be con
ferred on aliens who bare served In the navy
and are honorably discharged
The report recommends that from those an
prentice who have served faltbfnlir and 0
clentiy until 21 year of age and who shall
reflnllst for three year and shall have passed
with credit and distinction through the ad
vanced course of instruction at Washington
and at Ute torpedo elation and shall be pro
ficient in seamanship navigation and gun
nery two of the most distinguished In their
studies and in moral qualification be exam
ined yearly for admission U the grade of en
sign in the line of promotion H needs no
argument to prove the report adds that a
measure of this kind would tend greatly to im
prove the morale of the enlisted man bat out
aide and beyond this It would be but an act of
duty and justice to a class In the service who
have contributed so largely In the past to our

Loiroox Nov GThe two greatcet mot
on thlsearth met tonight In London That is
the two greatest from the prize fighters point
of view John L Sullivan the pride ot Boston
and ot America who baa proved 80 often with
hit right duke and his left duke and with both i
dukes together that he Is the greatest knocker
out among men and the shining sun of the 4
flstlo firmament nodded at and was formally
Introduced to Jem Smith of England the man
I who hopes to wrest the master title from him
and whose lustre is brightest among the host ot
bruising planet that revolve around the great
prizeflghtlna luminary It wo a light to melt
the lover of tru < l port to gentle tears one tI
which in olden days could have been sang br
minstrels with striped legs of different color
and woven into dingy Immortality bY hIP
vralated maidens bending over their embroid
ery Even in this nineteenth century there
was emotion Strongmen held their breath
aa though looking Into the works of a favorlUj
watch and when It was all over the roarine
and cheering brought all the dime novel storle
about Comanche war whooping into real life
It wu in 8t James Hal and there was
fine big stage for the great men to strut about
on Sullivan and Smith stood side by aide la
the middle of It and it was a fine chance to
compare the two representatives of muscle
The men were in many respects exact oppo
site Smith is short and chunky with big
swelling chest thick short legs with tre I
mendous calve defying the tailors law that
men shall now wear their trousers flowing
short bull neck square jaw low forehead
smooth face expression eoodhnmored bat
lacking Intelligence not quite the full
fledged great man plain clothes short
Jacket of coarse material thick boot not hat
and a few diamonds indicating a desire to
soar sbove the ordinary British price fighter a
perfectly developed specimen of the bulldog In
human nature but with a most lovely Mt of
White teeth Those tooth art all of Smiths
beauty and smiling he displays them wfthft
ittcosss and grace which might have been Tied
by ladle and copied by Eyrie Bellow
A different picture must be drawn to give
American an ides of what Sullivan the United
States fistic plenipotentiary looked like Im
agine a man as calm and quiet as though the
earth were tile and all the rest of us his tea
tall but who 0
ant not a wonderfully man one
look very tall a body so well shaped that It
seems not unusually muscular and with the
wonderful power spread out all over it like
electricity in a battery not stored in knob 2
and bunches of muscle as In the ordinary
strong man Sullivan looked and acted tlb
the man who Is used to creating more excite
ment than kings or Presidents and who
knows that to basic in his jnesenee fa nll s
a pleasure to many thousands His face is a i
better one than that of any man in his prof g
mOIl and one In which good nature ofta
trngd Ies through the satisfied enirueafciq
bora of the ability to beat anything on earth
Everything about Sullivan told of the man
nurtured lath ottlsp of Madison Square

edness or other becoming qualities Far part
the diamond hankering that accompanl
sudden prosperity Sullivan had disdained all
jewelry and appeared simply himself fixed up
in tbe best clothing gate receIpts can buy
With Sullivan was Mr Phillips his backer
who skilfully steers his wayward star past the
many temptations and bewildering brand of
a big new place Everybody wa introduced
to Sullivan Bmlth and Phillips and then the
fighters bowed solemnly and shook bands with
a pomp and solemnity that recalled to the his
torical mind H nrr VIILand big Kin Francis
on the field of the cloth of gold The audleme
which framed the picture was grand Bow
and rows of young men some with titles and
