^ Order for His Parole Tele-1
graphed From Washington, j
Prisoner Makes Arrangements for j
Immediate Departure.
Con^cted Man Was Serving Term of
Five Years in Leavenworth
LEA VEX WORTH, Kan.. October 14.?
An order from Washington, paroling John
K. Walsh, the former Chicago banker and
railroad president, was received at the
federal prison here this morning, and
he at once began preparations for the
start home.
l*p to the time of his parole, Mr. Walsh
had served one year, eight months and
twenty-six days of his Hve-year sentence.
When told that he was to be released
the aged financier plainly showed his
pleasure, l.ater it was announced the
former banker's son would arrive from
Chicago during the day, and that the
start for home probably nonld be made
late this afternoon.
Petition Filed in September.
Mr. Walsh went before the parole board
here on September - last and presented
his petition for release. The board at
the same session heard the petitions of a
dozen other ex-bankers, besides those of
fifty prisoners serving sentences for
various crimes. President Da Dow and
the other members of the board made
their seeret conclusions in the case a few
days later. On September .'50 Mr. Da
Dow went east to submit his report to
Mr. Wlekersham. He would divulge none
of the board's proceedings except to say
that the treatment given Walsh was exI
aetly the same as that accorded the
' other petitioners.
I Walsh went back to work at his desk
I in the newspaper clipping bureau.
It was stated that Walsh had .raproved
in spirits from the time he knew definitely
that he was to have an opportunity to
present his petition. This spirit he
maintained till his release today.
Had Abandoned Hope.
When the prisoner was notified that a
parole had been granted he was overwhelmed.
He expected a favorable reply
would arHve by Thursday at the latest.
When it failed to arrive yesterday noon,
hours after he had expected it, he passively
gave up hope.
"I fear the finding has nut been favorable,"
he_said and seenmi greatly de
pres?eci. rno oraer to parole was received
by telegraph from Attorney General

Trouble at McXinley Manual Training
Arose Over Use of
Text Book.
No investigation of the alleged "strike"
at the MoKinley Manuel Training Night
School, as reported yesterday, will be
made by the board of education or any
school official. The facts concerning
a misunderstanding in what text books
had been adopted for the night school
course In machine shop work were explained
today by a school official in
this way:
"The Student's Manual for Machine
Shop Practice" is a book which has
l>een adopted by the board of education
I tor use in the high schools here, after
! recommendation by Principal Myers and
j the committee on text books, it is a
I book which Mr. Hecox uses every day
! in teaching in the day classes. However.
the book was not adopted for the
nigut schools, although its use is perfectly
proper and optional.
Monday night, wnen the night classes
assembled. evidently some of the
students were under the impression that
they would not be required to get a
text book, and when they were told they
would be, they naturally went to the
principal. F. <\ Daniel, who informed
them that the book had not been adopted
for the night school, and that Mr.
Hecox hud made a mistake.

CHICAGO, October 14.?An ordinary

Police Justice John R. McDonnell of the
village of Lyons yesterday explained the
The Justice had been summoned to ap.

Service on Supreme Bench of the
United States Exceeded by
That of Only Two
Associate Justice John M. Harlan, the
oldest member ot' the Supreme Court ot
the United States, for years conspicuous
in Kentucky politics, once candidate for
the republican nomination to Vice President
of the United States, a foremost
constitutional authority and prominent in
the councils of the Presbyterian Church,
died at his home in this city tills morning.
He was seventy-eight years old last
Justice Harlan had been ill with acute
bronchitis less than a week. He sat on
the bench last Monday, when the court
heard arguments on the so-called anthracite
coal trust case. The following
morning Chief Justice White announced
that Justice Harian was slightly ill" and
yesterday asked attorneys to consider _
that Justice Harlan was sitting in their '
cases although not physically present.

age, he was robust and ordinarily enjoyed
the best of health.
Barely Absent From the Bench.
Rarely absent from the bench, an attack
of influenza a few years ago being _
almost the only illness from which he had
suffered for a long period, the sudden ft
death of Associate Justice Brewer of the \
Supreme Court, who was not only a col- U

Harlan, whose friends have felt some apprehension
of the serious consequences ofi
the shock of Justice Brewer's desth. !
Chief Justice Fuller's death In the summer
of 1U10 was also a great shock to T
the venerable Jurist. Justice Harlan
continued to perform his share of the
work of the court.
Service Exceeded by Two Justices.
His great ambition was to serve until
next June, when he would have exceeded
the service of any other man who sat 1
on that bench. As it was, his service at
was longer than that of any other justice Of
except Chief Justice Marshall and Asso- wi
eiate Justice Stephen J. Field. Field's El

served' their country on the bench for pi
more than a generation. ea
Attacked While on the Bench. to
it was while sitting on the bench Monday
that Justice Harlan first felt the atta;
k of bronchitis. He asked then for '
such simple remedies as were at band by
n the office of the marshal of the court, th
but lie iemained at his post. By Tucs- n<
Jay considerable fever was manifest. 1
Wedne.-day he was markedly weaker anu rc
nis condition grew worse, alinougii n was T]
not understood at the Supreme Court that
his condition was at all alarming. Yes- ~i
lerday lie seemed a little better. His &.v
son, John M. Harlan of Chicago, a lawyer.
w as summoned here, however, and jj,
another. Dr. Richard C. Harlan, traveling
in Europe, was notified.
Last night he grew worse and deatli fr
came at S:lil o'clock this morning. m
His Last Words. er
Justice Harlan's last words were touch- of
ing. Slowly and witli evident difficulty er
he said: "Good-bye. 1 am sorry I have d<
W tut von nil uaitlne so loner." At hlu
bedside when he passed away were his
wife and two sons, James S. Harlan and ^
John Mavnard Harlan; two daughters, *
Miss I^aura Harlan and Miss Ruth Har- cc
lan; the judge's secretary, J. E. Hoover; la
his manservant, James Jackson, and ai
other members of his family, in addition N
to Ids attending physicians. Dr. Thomas D

Although funeral arrangements have
not been completed it has tentatively been
decided to have the funeral Mon- A
day. Rev. Dr. Wallace Radcliffe, pastor
of the New York Avenue Presbyterian >n
Church, of which Justice Harlan was a
member, will officiate at the services.
Justice Harlan for many years had been
instructor of a class In the Sunday school
of the church and he had announced be- \
tore being stricken ill that lie would resume
his work with the class this com- c<
ing Sunday morning. Justice Harlan s v<
class will meet tomorrow morning at CI

Although the death of Justice Harlan
did not become generally known until
some time after it occurred, messages of 9
condolence to members of the family j.'
from friends in this city and from alt f
over the -country poured in throughout
the day, and a veritable stream of con- a
veyances brought grief-stricken friends w
to the imposing mansion at 14th and
Euclid streets, which the family has occupied
since 18?5, to offer sympathy to
Mrs. Harlan and the t&reaved ch.ldren.
An instance of Justice Harlan's loyalty T
to work and his devotion to duty was ^
evinced Wednesday. Although apparently
appreciating the seriousness of his
condition, the judge pleaded with his
phv-Riclans to enable him, If possible, to ..
attend the session of the Supreme Court
the next day, Thursday, telling them a l<
case of the utmost Importance was to *
be considered, one which necessitated r<
his presence in the court chamber.
