The people on Washington Heights tho
neighbors of Cot John 1 Follows who backed
him so heartily In his fight for the office of
District Attorney and who regardless of party
voted almost solidly for him were not satisfied
amost eoldlr laUefol
to let their expression of appreciation stop
there but last night they emphasized their
ceased for him by holding a large meeting of
enthusiastic men and women in the Athemcum
In 16Sth street I was preceded and supple
mented by a torchlight parade fireworks and
bands of music just as I he was to be elected
over again The Jackson Association of Man
Tiattanvlllo joined into and marched up to the
Heights picking up Senatorelect Ives and
Assemblymanelect Connolly Tax Commis
sioner Donnelly and others on the way
There Is only one way to get Into the Athe
neum and when Cot FelTbwn walked in that
way the people who already filled the hal ap
plauded till he was out of sight behind tho
stage curtains Dr Isaac B 1eot said It was a
great pleasure to him to preside at the meet
ng and offer his congratulations to Col Fel
owe because the public had spoken in his
favor and denied the calumles aimed at him
Lawson N Fuller always I tuvorlte orator
on Washington Heights came forward amid
cheers and a blast from the band
We bud an election one > ay this week
he said ood campaigns

tacked the brightest light up here why all of
us of every parly and creed pitched In and
didnt we give It to them I Why I was never
so mortified In mv lila ni to see the Itopubll
cans go to tho Democratic party to pick out a
manhood enough to run against Col iel
Benntor Ivos also spoke but gave way quick
ly to Col Fellows who came modestly forward
and waited for the applause and hand to stop
Ho said he would so far as he could with a
somewhat shattered voice attempt to express
his gratitude for the limitless kindness of his
rlllude tlUmltlls
neighbors and would iilso outline to them the
methods which he should adopt In the per
formance of the duties which hud teen
recently put upon him Ho consid
ered it was on Washington Heights
where all the dearest ties of his life
were centred that he should first make those
promises which he trusted to redeem In the
three yours he should If he lived servo the
people It was a confidence to which his neigh
bors I first entitled He spoke or the bit

upon him till he thought a times he should

break down under them not because they
were true but because lie hud a character to
maintain before the public and he feared how
much of the falsehood people uilfh believe
He said
But I thank you most of all not for tho
burden you have laid upon me but because
you have permitted me to wear the character
of a citizen of fair repute again and that you
have brought joy to my home by vindicating
me The heart of Now York la u manly one
I P will not stand detraction and falsehood and
the very attacks upon me brought out In op
position many exoreaslons of the real sonli

I have to thank the ItorW for giving me
101100 moro plurality than I would Imve had
I It bad kept still And now Pulitzer mildly
state that he has nothing iigalnst mu personally
for principle I want
ally but ho WAS Hchtlnc WlUt
to aar that I can stand his abuse but I cannot
stand his flattery I there Is ny support that
I do not desire It Is that of the New York
ttorlil l I there IH I anything In the city that
will have the minimum of Influence and weight
it Is the New York World
I l shall run the office In the interest of the
peonle This tight has settled some questions
and one is concerning the true power of the
press It Is one of the grottiest teachers of
mankind But when ils made an engine for
wrong It Is the greatest of evils The present
conduct of the WorM tends to promote vice
and weaken all respect for the law and this
election has proven that a depraved degraded
nnd malignant paper like that has lost Its
Iowprow on Tan 1 I shall take charge of an
ofllco more Important to your interests than
any other I Is the office fur the prosecution
ot organized crime directed naulnst your prop
erty or your life The criminal clnss isadiin
llprmiH cities and any relaxation of the laws
would give this city now to I perfect saturnalia
or crime It makes no difference li I they are
criminals who take oaths mid clothe them I
selves with the garb of ofllcliil positions there I
should be no relaxation
l I do not succeed In the office It will be I
my own fault because I know that office from
top to bottom I KO to that office with but one
purpose and with no obllira ions upon me
They say I am a creature of the bosses I re
ceived tho nomination of my party and no
member has asked melo make pledge There
Is not one yet Indicted or yet to bu indicted
that I am unwilling to try he he high or low
The public prosecutor should not be a per
secutor There are circumstances In which llo
should be tolerant and have a kindly nature
There are some boys who may not have started
out Intentionally on II career of crime who can
be sent back home with a lesson learned I
would rather go down to the river and jump In
than drive a boy not yet an Intentional crim
malt to become the associate of criminals and
graduate from jail a confirmed criminal
I had rather save a young life than win a

principles In which the people reiterate their

ably satisfied with the Democratic party and

while New York does not favor free trade It de

With a problem moro vexing ft complication
more serious a disturbance more absolute
than any tbat bos confronted the people ot any
I portion of the country since the days of the 4J
vigilance committee which swept California 8
I with a besom of reform In 1850 j1
The police efficiently which mastered the 1ti
men called rioters who shed the blood of
black and white in the streets of Gotham in
the drift riots of 1803 were tho Generals of our
armies who from 1801 through the disasters j
and defeats of 63 and 63 brought peace out ot I
conflict security out nf danger a reunited
I country out of the rebellion In 1865 The sui I
cide of Louis Llnce meant much and I thought
today as I looked upon tho remains of hlsonco
fair bodywith nothing of human semblance
I about It from the legs down bin own pernicious
activity bnUng been supplemented by the
ghoulish glee of the surgeons who bad carved
him from end to end I thought I say how
fortunate was the discovery ot the tour bombs i
in his cell
His desperation was born ot the tact that he
was no longer in possession of the means to
inflict serious damage upon others and
whether Spies Parsons Fischer and Engel
told the truth when they said they knew
nothing ot those bombs or not is immaterial i
The fact is that the bombs were there and
each one was sufficiently potent in Its destrue I
tlveness to blow the jail to atoms and kill ol
mutilate every human being within Its walls
That such a problem was outlined in Llnggc
active brain there can be no possibility ol
doubt His death horrible agonizing aa It t i
was was a curious combination of relief and
added horror Had ho died with less mutila
tion had It been possible to remove Imme
diately all trace ot the bloody deed bad It
been convenient to put his mangled body out d
of sight the effect would have been less
marked but there It was and Is In a bathroom 4 k
not ten feet from the room in whichwo all
gathered today There It was in all Its hldeou f
repulsiveness an object of curiosity to every
one an object of careful scrutiny and investi tJ j
gation to scores and scores ot men who ought t
to know better There it was with all its
hideous suggestions a kind of text from which
a hundred sermons and a hundred discourse
were necessarily and obviously delivered All
during the watches of the last uneventful night ty
that body lay there speaking from every gash 4iiit
ing wound It wan a topic with sheriffs and
bailiffs and turnkeys sad jailers and corre
spondents and prisoners ol every name and
condition and that it should be an allabsorb
big thought with the men who regarded Lines
as a hero and who regretted that they too
were not able as be did to evade the disgrace f
ful Ignominious punishment that awaited
them goes without much argument
The chlllluc breezes that came up from thi
lake last evening affected the entire town td
bo sure but they added a groaterdegree of din ja I
comfort to the whitewashed Interior ol the Ii
lime kiln smelling jail with its narrow cells
doubled guards smoking chatting crowds in
side and out and particularly In that lone tl
narrow corridor at one end ot which expert
carpenters were erecting the stage on which
the tragedy was so soon to be enacted Or
dlnarily condemned men eat well and sleep 4 i
well It is a somewhat remarkable fact that
the ordinary man under sentence ot death be
trays to the fullest horizon his peculiarities b
ot speech nl bearing ol appetite to
ward the last hours ot his life It U
no uncommon occurrence for men who are to
be hanged at U I oclock in tIm morning to eat at
7i oclock a hearty breakfast of ham and eggs
bread and butter and coffee ad libitum with
a plate ol buckwheat cakes and Pennsylvania
sausage thrown In It Is almost Invariably the
tact that the sleeplessness and restlessness ol l9 I
the scene dominate the jailors and the attend tV I
ants rather than the culprits You will not be
surprised then to know that these men who
were each In his line unique specltnensof their
