The result of last Tuesday" election is
' most gratify ingtr. Pennsylvania Rcpub
; licans. The majority in the Suite far ex
ceed the most sanguine expectation 'f
! thwe w ho gave the .stiivas their lec
: ial attention. There hae leen no lower
j ing of the party taUilanl in the Key stone
StaU. It was boldly claimed two we-ka
j before the ele"tion, owing to the disHati-fai-tion
with the nomiiiation of led in
j lliiladelphia anil the hostile attitude of
! the Personal Liberty and Liquor Leaguea
in all the principal cities and towns of
the State, that the Democrats would tar
ry the day. The result how how wild
were these cah-ulation and how unex-js-cted
wa the stinging rebuke given this
unholy alliance by t.'ie quiet lire-side
oU-rs and the al a aya loyal lC publkius
of the rural district. The defeat of
liced for Sheriff of Philadelphia i not
surprising, in view of the fact that 'the
Independent vote wascast solidly against
hiui, and with one exception, the Repub
lican pre of the city openly opposed
him. The contest wa a very unequal
one and the surprise i that the majority
against him was not more decided.
The course of justuw has been eagerly
waU bed in the case of the Chicago an
archista. It came with slow but awful
tread. The rcouireiiienU of society have
lieen compliel with aaid justice is satis
fied. Pour of the seven were executed.
One died the fien-lish death he hid pre-
ireI for others, and two had their sen
tence Miinuiulcd to imprisonment for
life. The crime for w hich all were con
demned was deliberate and inexcusable.
It was not ho much an attack on the olli-
cersof tlie law asa blow at the law of the
land iti-lf. Not satisfied with the distri
bution of wealth, w ith the relations of
employer and employed, and cherishing
in their Uisoms the hope of revolution
whereby their condition would be bet
tered, an atrts-ious crime was agreed uje
on and committed w hich resulted in the
death of seven ollicers of the law and the
mangling of fifty other. The murderers
were tried with every care. All were
convicted and sentenced to death. The
trial court was sustained in all ita deci
sions by the highest court ill the State.
Anapi-ul waa taken to the Supreme
Court of the I'nited States ami it allinu
ed that the decisions of the State court
were in accordance with la. The sym
pathies of thousand were -enlist! for
the condemned, and the t-iovcrnor of Il
linois was deluged with petitions, prayer
and threat asking for executhe clem--ncy,
and at tite Molicitution of the Judge
who tried the case ami the prosecuting
attorney, comuiuU-i thc ScnUmc of two.
The hanging of the four should 1h- con
vincing evidence to anarchists, ahcrever
thev may I found, that the laws of
America are not to la- trilled with, and
lhat she offers no home to the diwt rovers
of her pcav.
It Was a Republican Sweep in Every

the substantial ruil.-i of Tu.-sd.iy's election
eovpt that the R'-publieaii i-onliinie to have
a majority in both bran -he of the Legisla

state ticket that take New York out of the
debatable list for next year. They had to
liirht this caniain aiint a remarkable
combination of interest allied with the De-
ftiucra -y the most cuiispiciloii nt'a liich wa
the orirauiil antagonism of the brew

Another potent iiiHnence wa that fir the i

fort cj'ild have done. This iiudini lied de

has (-juried two counties in the center of the
state by gmi round majorities, and that the
total majority against Prohibition will not

Tlie second amendment, relative to alariis
is overwhelmingly defeated, and the third
amendment, relative to changing the time of
holding elections till November, is probably
The South Penn.
The answers to the bill of complaint of the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company against the
New York stockholders of the South Penn
will be tiled to-ilay (Tuesday). These an

An appeal was taken from such finding
and sent to the Supreme Court of the State.
That court, Uwm a final hca ing, and after

A careful consideration of the evidence iu

my mind any impression tending to iniieacli

I am precluded from consi.li-ring the ques

The Death of His Choice.
t'liit-Aiio, Nov. In. Louis Lingg, the trne
An-h-Anarchist aud " human tiger." com
mitted suicide in his cell at H:55 o'clock this
morning uy biow ing his face to pieces with
a candle loaded with dynamite and a fulmi
nating cup. His face was biown out ol all
semblance 'if human sha. He lit the wick
and plaied the caudle in hi mouth. At the
time mentioned a r-(iort startled every one
in the jail. Mr. Osborne, tlie death watch
at om-e hsated the sound in Lingg's cell. The
d-ir wa opened and Liutrg was found on
hi kick. The cell was j uttered with blood
and the air wa heavy wilh smoke and the
smell of dynamite. The explosion was
beard all over the jail, where it echoed
through theeorridore and cells with a hol
low " boom," and fur a moment there
was almost a iauic. The bleeding hut yet
breathing body wa carried into the jail
office and Dr. Fengi-r summoned. He, with
nther physician, at once tisik sfeps to stem
tiie fast -flowing life-tide and had some hope
of saving Lingg's life for the hangman.
Parsons was at once taken out of hi cell
and searched, but without result. A candle
loaded in a similar manner to the one used
was found in Lingg's cell. The tallow had
In-en poured around a dynamite cartridge.
These caudles had been iascd into the jail
and might have heeii Used by all of the men,
so far as known.
A representative of the United Pn-s met
Miss Van Zandt at the d.sr and told her
what Lingg had done. She staggered hack a
step, press..) her hand to lier heart and
gated : ' What ! " Vn lieing assured that
it wa indeed true she exclaimed with gn-at
(agitation: "My Ood! Ha it come to
i this? "
Lingg s.s.11 became unconscious and his
breathings scarcely noticeable. He was lur
ried into the hath room and was laid on a
table onto w hich thc torrent of blisjd gushed
from the holes in his head, completely sur
rounding him. Dr. i ray said he found that
the tissues of the throat aud neck and the
front of the Jaw had been torn away. Stim
ulant failed to rouse the man from ills
lethergy. While the physician whs working
over him Lingg coughed and the hlood
ptirted from hi lung, staining his hair
aud clothes.
The doctor said the unfortunate man could
live but a few hours at most, as his breath
was coming at greater intervals already.
Whcn informed of Lingo's attempt to
commit suicide Captain Itlack said that in
his opinion it would have an effect favorable
to the other men. He thought Lingg wa
insane and declared that lie thought Enge)
to be crazy also. He would not attempt to
say that Lingg' desperate deed would have
any effect on the Oovernor, but if it did he
believed it would be to the advantage of the
It is now thought the dynamite cartridges
were hiddeu in Lingg's hair and that he im-bedd-d
them ill hi candles himself. The

A pirn- of his tongue was fond iu the cell
when it was searched.
Lingg's life tossed away at "l:V. The doe-
m'nute more he opened his eyes, glanced
around, dropped hi head and wa dead.
Sheriff Mat-son arrived at the jail noon
after tlie attemiit at suicide took place. He
immediately ordered all the cells of the
prisoners to be searched. This was thorough
ly done, but nothing was found.
The other prisoners refused to say anything
alsiut Lingg's attempt at suicide, except
Fischer, who said : " I thought Lingg was
possessed ofsmflicient courage not lodo such
a thing. I am certainly surprised. As tor
me. I am ready to grace tlie gallows."
Sheriff Mat son said : " It can only be sur
mised bow Lingg got the explosive fa his
posHemioo without our discovering it. He
has been thoroughly searched every day
since the discovery of the bomb, and noth
ing ha been found on him. His bushy
hair, however, could easily have concealed
the cas and fiLte, and I am inclined to be
lieve that he se-reted them there."
At 5 o'eUirfc iheOomoer'jury wasbmught

The Last Night Of Life.
Ohicvso, Nov. II. The hour passed slow
ly in the county jail lust night slowly to
both watchers and watched. Spies did not
at first find the slumber be Nought and wa
up fr in midnight till nearly 1 o'chs-k, but
he fell asleep a few moments later. Before
that lie chatted pleasantly with Deputy
Siberia vjuert, smoked and enjoyed himself
as well ae he could.
Rev. Dr. U. W. Bolton called ou Spies
and offered him spiritual consolation. The
condemned man turned an icy stare on the
divine, and said : " You can't pray for me.
(to pray for some body else who needs it. I
don't need prayer."
The deputy sheriff who was with Parsons
for three hours last night, said : " He was
very cheerful and hopeful." Such was indeed
the case.
Parsons was never in better humor than
he was last night. He seemed to forget en
tirely that he would have to die within
twelve hours, so interested did he become in
his own harangue to the death watch. He
talked aU.ul Socialism, alsiut Anarchy, the
llaymarket ami his wife and children. It
was not until he reached this subject that he
manifested any sorrow or regret, and the
more he talked about it the more sorrowful
he became. Aliout 11 o'clock Parsons
went to sleep and at 2 o'clock he was sh-ep-ing
as soundly a he ever did in hi life.
Fischer was the least talkative of the four
condemned men, though he was as chi-erfil
a any of t ii-ni. For nearly I'iriv hoar he
sat on the edge of the cot in his cell pu tttng
at a cigar. He sfioke rarely to S. hauinls-rg.

eil tbe greater part of my lite, and which I
love better than my life, the c.m-e of the
laboring men. ll-sides this my ...nviction
was unfair, unjust and ill.-ji!.'' t Pr til
r. M. Fischer lay dowu and li.e minutes
later his breathing was so heavy and regular
that the watch was conviu.v I that he wa
sound asleep.
Engel was cheerful and cicitented, and at
times even witty. loiter at night when the
li-ath watch sat on the threshold of his cell,
scarce! v ever removing his eves from him.
Engel became reminiscent, mid som of r'ie
stiirie he told were not only iiiteresi.iu. it
lecidcdlv sensational. Once he said ; Y 'ii
people think, pcriu.u.13, that I a n atni.l i . ,o

idea at once, for it is not true. No man ever
faced deaith more calmly than I do now. I
am an Anarchist. 1 lielieve in its every
principle, and as it i.opioed to the present
order of things, what is more natural than
the desire of the authorities to choke me?"
The last Scene of the Tragedy.
CmcAtio, Nov. II. No sooner had the
(iovernor's final decision been received than
the final preiara!ions began. The greatest
bustle and excitement prevailed in theoffice,
but Schwabcoiitinucd writin-.; uninterrupted,
the others remained equally nouchalcnl. not
withstanding the confusion that marked the
beginingof the end.
The repn'-ntative of the press were con
ducted to the north corridor and seated with
in a few feel uf the nniffold. At 1H:.V alsiut
2iKl newspaper men, hs-al politician and
other had passed through the dark under
the gallows and began seating themselves.
At 11:1U the jury fell ill and t.iok their
places in the double row of chairs which had
been reserved ill front of the press tables.
Altogether the corridor was not half filled.
The cell on tlie first thsir, a well as those
on the two upper tier, had la-en emptied of
their occujiant. The scaffold was not paint
ed and was brown with age and usage.
There was a sjuce of about two feet between
each of the roes and the four tases-s hung
ou a deail level. The mix- was light but of
substantial make.
The gathering was quiet and decorous.
Hals had been removed and cigars thrown
awav. There wa none of the crowding,
pnhing. smoking, swearing mob tlit di
graced the execution of Italian two year
ago.- 1 he name of the junir were called
and each rose to resmd. Ttien then- was

had st.Mxi still ; as if the blots! was congeal

tilltics was hrokeu by a tvail, a wi-ired.
gruesome sound. Jt was only the t jail
cat, but it paled the ch.-elc of many a man
who at another time would make the event
a source of hilarity. She animal, which bail
been secured in an adjoining cage, wa taken
out, and again the stillness of netie.
Thmtigh the high barred iatiel of glass di
rectly back of the scaffold a score of armed
police were visible. They were as motionless
as statue, their gnu's at their shoulders, and
the mimics bearing directly on the pillows
The moment on. A re.rt gains cur
rency that the Sheriff is holding offuntil the
last moment in expectatien that something
will he heard from Springfield. Suddenly
the face of Deputy (ile.Ls.nl wa seen ut the
eu trance uf the corridor leading to the scaf
fold. His Cue is white, he is trembling in
every limb. He raise his hand. The mo
ment ha arrived. The shuffling of feet i
heard in th corridor. It is 11:49 to the
minute. Sheriff Matsoii apears, his baek
toths gathering, he is facing the iroeHiou.
Spiea comes into view, a bruud-houliercl
bailiff is on bis right side, next comes Fischer
then Kngel.
Just before the march to the gallows Fis
cher liiied his face to the 'eel Is of Fielden
and Schwab, in the gall. tv aixve, and shout
ed: " Hrudk-r Schwab, wir wuiischen ihiieii
eiu gluecklicbcs lela-n, mid das fichu!. I her
atlskommcn." ( Brother Schwab, wc wish
you a happy life am) that you may ssm lie
free.) Then he added : "fnssl bye Sam."
"tiissi bye. Sam." echoed Spies and Engel.
Parson said nothing.
Schwab stood at the door of his cell, his
hands folded behind, hi brow overhung by
matted hair pressed against the iron Uirs.
Tears streamed down hischeeksaud ran into
Ins black unkempt beard. He was so
overcome by emotion that he could not
sjKak. Not one of the spectators was un
moved. " Don't tint the braces on too tight ; vou
hurt me."
The wonls came in sharp, querulous tones
from Parsons, was the last one to be pinion
ed. He shook all over. Whether it was
rage or tear that moved him, who know.
The spell of the moment wa broken.
Now the iron d.ir between life ami death
opened aud tbe men moved out, slowly and
with measured tread. First came Spies,
then Fischer, then Engel, then Parson
" Won't you come insiile?" sneered the
latter to the reporters, who hud been observ
ing tlie last toilet.
With a crash which resounded through
tlie entire building the heavy iron ikior clos
ed and presently the crowd of officers, with
the four white-shrotnlcd figure in their
midst, disappear around the tuni of tlie cor
ridor. '
"Oh, my God, my God," exclaimed pr :
Sara Fielden as his comrades diapieared
from his sight forever. Then be threw him
self into a corner of hicell, dropping to ' is

powerful' frame shook under the terrible

lie remained in this attitude of passionute

strong man wept like a child. The )- ta
tors ti.-p)d prverenily aside before thi great
paroxysm of grief.
Spies. Engel and Fischer stepped from the
second tier cells to the w-affold. Tlie peca
bir drew a long breath. " Parson is
saved, the word that went around, but it '
wa not to 1. A second later Parson ap- '.
peared. - Tiie four nieu placed thenwel tin
the trap.
All were ga-tly pale. Spies' hair seemed j
to literally stand upon end. Enget's shoul
ders seemed nearly to toiteh the lop of hi ,
head. Parsoii set his teeth firmly together ;
and locked down calmly iisui the emwtl j
beneath. His fai-e is the fiice of a man of j
iron. A murruer of admiration for his uu-
finichiiig nerve goes through the spectators
Engel funis around and say something in
a., inaudible tone to the tieptuy. it is evi
deutly of a jocular character. Sir the con-
demued man laughs heartily. Fischer looks
at him a moment and then he tio, puts in a
remark. Spies and Parsons at either end of
the scaffold maintain a solid ami ditrnificd
demeanor, but there is a hsik of unut. rable '
wis- upon the face of the ex-editor which j
pien-es the hearts of those surrounding the I
The shrouds bad already been adjusted lie- j
fore the men left their cells. Nothing re- j
main but to encircle each neck with the i

Jailer Folx approaches Spies. A
movement, so quick that it can hardly
notice. I. and the nis is around hi neck and
being drawn taut. The same woe begone
look from the eyes. Folz moved a step and
in a moment the throat of Fischer is encir
cle! by the ntswe. He moves his head up
uml down a if it hurt him. Engel does not
move as the oiemtion is ceing s-rformetl.
Parsons rivits his gaze on the ground and
hi features are crontracted. All four are
evidently determined to tlie game.
A deputy approaches Spie$ with the -ap
in hi hand. The condemned man say
something in an undertone. He isevidently
remonstrating with the deputy, who wavers
for a moment. Spies speak till more ear
nestly. The deputy lisik at the Sheriff.
The latter closes his eye. It is enough.
The cap is iiiickly dntwn over the face of
Anarchist leader. It ha been -i !' .r
lb.- time in life. The head of Kngel is
next covered, then Fischer. Parson hist.
Fischer's head moved up and down in the
direction of the Sn-rifr, who, with hi hand

an-hist, as well as he can in hi niu-din-cov-

There is a nioiueiit of death-like still. i ss

Silence again for a second. Then, in a
round, full voice, shout, "Hurrah tor Anar

Another pause, broken this time by the
voice of Fischer. " This is the happiest mo
ment of nip life.'' He had had his say.
Then the clear, well moulded voi,-e of
Parous breaks the oppresive tilhiess.
There is not that enthusiastic ring in it which
market! the utterance of the other. It is
the voice of a judge delivering a decision a
scarcely-definable pause between each word
"Shall I Is-allowed to .eak ? oh ! men and
women of dear America."
The Sheriff shift his position a little. He
is several feet away from the ieaker, but
the speaker must have seen the movement
through the folds of the cap. There is a
rising inflection in his voice, not so much of
pleading as of demand.
' I-t me ieak. Sheriff Mafon." is what

The drop fell at lli.Wfi. From the first
step of Spies UKin the scaffold until the cut
ting of the rope, precisely six minute and
til ree seconds hail elaiised. For a moment
after the tlrop had fallen not a soul stirred.
A low muiiiiir, like a )s-ut up sigh ol relief
went through the corridor.
Then, as if moved hy one common impulse
every man nie lo hi feet and every eye wa
rivitetl uiion the liody of Spies. The arch
Anarchist was dying hard. His legs and
arm moved convulsively, with extraordi
nary rapidity ; it was as though he were
alive and eoiiious and slnnrgling to free
himself from the cord that bound liiiu.
His whole frame was aggitated by a quiver
ing tremor. Low groan of horror came from
many lips and the expression "He's dying
hard'' was heard on all sides. This contin
ued for over a minute an hour it seemed
and then the struggle grew fainteraiid faint
er until they finally ceased.
The bodies of Kngel and Fischer w ere mo
tionless for a moruenr after the drop, save
fir the swinging to and fro: Then Fischer's
Icl's drew up and down and there wa a con
vulsive movement of hi arm. Kngel's
strnggles were brief. Parson alone tlied as
though hi heart had lieen pierced by a bul
let. He came down like a log. There wa
not a twitch or contraction of the muscle.
His neck iiad been broken instuutly. All

After much tugging theknot alipl and
the white cap was takeu otf. Spies' fins- was
covered with a greasy prvspiratioii ami his
mouth was open, showing teeth somewhat
discolored. There was no discoloration of
the face and the noose left no siirn or murk

under the right side of the neck and pn-sed

saiil shortly. " The neck is not broken." In

Fischer's body was lowered and prepared for
