State's Attorney Grinnell Closing the
Argument in the Great An-
archisl Trial.
Chicago, 111., Aug. IS. Toward the
close of his speech this morning Captain
Black became very iolent in his remarks
directed at the police, and what appeared to
he a detense of pociohbin. The llaymarket,
meeting, he said, was called for the nur-
y purpose of discussing the common good of
those pai ticipating. It had gone on peace
fully and was Hearing a peaceful close
had in fact began dissolution when, as I
believe, gentlemen, the police made an mi
warranted, unjustified and outrageous in
vasion of these citizens' rights, inspector
I3oniield ordered the formation of that col
umn w hich began the march of death.
Continued Captain Black, I ask you
gentlemen, on your oath before God, who
was responsible for the llaymarket massa
cre? If Inspector Bonfield had not march
ed there would there have been any
murder? "When a peaceful meeting is on
the eve of departure pett- police take the
laws in their own hands :md threateningly
interfere with the people. That were anar
ch', that were chaos chaos of constitu
tutional rights. I charge no legal respon
sibility here, but I ask you, "gentlemen,
who it was that precipitated that riot
that massacre.
"When the followers of the Great Socialist
of Judca sought to spread ttic great princi
ples of the Teacher there were those who
thought by cruciliction to strangle the great
truth; but it would not strangle; it burst
forth in spite of the puny efforts of its foes
and enveloped the world.
Capt. Black then concluded his address
to the jury as follows: These prisoners
stand in this room true to their conviction.
"We will change their convictions if we can
A by argument ;let us persuade them if we
S can that they shall do no violence.
But - if the only answer you
have to show i the hemp and 11000,
you are turning back to the barbarism of
1800 years ago; you are turning back to
the crime of those past centuries; you are
P recreant to the thought and inspiration of
' God in this threat hour of our civilization
until you can blot out .Jesus Christ fiom
the world's history; until you can obliterate
His teachings; until you can seal up His
doctrine of fellowship, brotherhood and
love within some casket and set upon it
some faeal of absolute despotism and east it
into some sea of oblivion whose wave will
never stir.
Until then you cannot drive socialism
out of the world. Until then you cannot
make men stop thinking. Until then when
men see wiong of oppression, cruelty and
death, they will think, advise and hope for
a brighter tomorrow. If theie comes from
the Mate an appeal for vengeance: if you
are told to think of the deail who died in
their place of duty on that Kid night, and
if, aain. there are mentioned to you the
tears that fell upon those fresh made graves,
and you are asked under the old lex tal
ionis'to give a life for a life and one for in
terest b to 7 I say to you again,
is it right? Will the tears of tho-e widows
with whom we weep be assuaged because .a
few graves aie dishonored? 1 plead for
life. I do not have to satisfy you that my
theory may be correct, that is within reas
on; if it Le within reason then there re
mains that reasonable doubt which shelteis
even man.
Gentlemen, the lives of these eight men
are in your hands with no power to whom
vou are answerable but God, and 1 sav to
vou in clo-inir onlv the words of that Di
vine Socialist: As ye would that others
should do to you. do ye also to them.
The knowledge that .State's Attorney
Grinnell would begin the closing address in
the anaichist trial on the assembling of
court this afternoon had a tremendous
ciTect on the public.
Ilalf an hour before Judge Garry took
his seat the four otHeers on duty at the
main entrance of the criminal court build-in"-
were obliged to close the dooiNso great
was the pressure from the outside. The
thousand or mere persons then waiting for
admission were informed the court room
was already packed to its utmost capacity.
Several prominent lawyers w ho had watch
ed the progress of the trial fiom its begin
uinsr vicre sternly refused ad
mission by the "exasperated door
keeper, and even one or two
reporters whom they knew perfectly well
were forced to use strategy to gain entrance.
For the first time during the progress of
the trial the galleries of "the court room
were opened and were almost instantly
Mr. Grinnell devoted the first pait of his
address to comparing the defendants to
revolutionists celebrated in history. Why,
he said, these men have been compared to
George Washington. Then, gentlemen.

man it covered the death of several police
men. The state had no appeal and not one
of the defendants could be again indicted
for any of the offenses covered in the pres
ent indictment. The defendants could ap
peal, however, and this state of things
made it incumbent on the jury to use due
deliberation in arriving at a decision.
In speaking of Captain Black's address
State's Attorney Grinnell said it is the duty
of the judge to instruct on the law. Be
fore you conclude to disregard those in
structions, let me ask you to hesitate,
pause, consider. 3Ir. Grinnell devoted
some considerable time to illustrations of
conspiracy and the guilt borne by persons
who advised or encouraged others to com
mit it.
3Ir. Grinnell's language on this point was
practically the same"as used by him in
opening the case for the state and is illus
trated by the course taken by the prosecu
tion throughout the progress of the trial.
When murders resulted through a con
spiracy, he said, or in a crowd where the
immediate perpetration of the crime could
not be identified, all who could be identi
fied as taking part should be held responsi
ble. If the case which the attorneys for
the defense had endeavored to establish
should prevail no anarchist could ever be
punished in this country, because anarch
ists were autonomous, each member for
himself, yet without identitv. If these de
fendants were acquitted the 3,000 anarchists
in this countiy were safe to open up their
rovolution with impunity.
He criticized a number of remarks made
by Captain Black, who, he said, was elo
quent audi hetoncal lor the sake of pos
terity, and proceeded to correct him on sev
eral points with apparent success. He said
that the arguments made by the lawyers for
the detense indicated that they, like their
clients, were autonomous, and, he added,
ridiculous. lie believed that the verdict
which the jury would bring in this case
would be one that he could hand down to
his children with pride if anarchy be
spared them.
In the course of his speech he slid that
Mr. Ingham's address for the stale was a
monument of oratory which was un
answerable. This had been openly ac
knowledged by one of the attorneys in the
ca-e when court had adjourned on that
"Captain Bhiok: Grinnell, that statement
is outrageous, such a remark was certainly
never made by me or any of my associates.
The other council for the defense object
ed and denied that the' had thus compli
mented Mr. Ingham.
Mr. Grinnell continued and said he was
only paying his associates a deserved com
A moment later a similar remark
was made by the .state's attorney
and resulted in a sensation in the court.
Some one in the crowded room applauded
vigorously, and the couit ordered that the
person or persons making the disturbance
be instantly ejected. The bailiff could not
locate the party and the state's attorney
moved that the entire audience be removed.
He preferrid, he said, to speak only to the
Captain Black seconded the motion, but
the judge, after reprcmanding the audi
ence, said that upon a recuirauce of the
disturbance that section of the room in
which the disturbance took place would be
summarily cleared.
There was plainly to be felt a strong un
dercurrent of excitement running through
the audience and the impressive declara
tions of the state's attorney appeared to
steadily increase it.
The com t announced that he wished to
consult with the attorneys for both sides
after adjournment, when Captain Black
arose at 4 o'clock to make an objection to
Mr. Grinnell's denouncing the defendants
as assassins.
The state's attorney proposed an adjourn
ment then, as he had been interrupted; Mr.
Grinnell to conclude in the mornimr.

the situation is iretting serious, and the
managers of the large ranches are contem-

is reported among the entile men in Mon
tana that the Canadian government had de
cided to impose a duty of 15 per cent on
all cattle driven into the Dominion after
September uih, but the ranchmen would
fight this with the argument that they
would not ship an animal over the Cana

Get in Their Work in Pine Shape.
Toledo, Ohio, Aug. 18. There was
much anxious discussion last night in the
committee on resolutions in the Democratic
state convention. After blocking out the
ground to be covered a sub-committee was
appointed which was in session until 4.
o'clock before the platform was completed.
The convention assembled at 10:20 in
Memorial hall and was called to order by
lion. Thomas J. Cogau, of Cincinnatti,
chairman of the state committee. Hon. E.
Finley, of Bucyrns, Ohio, was made perma
nent chairman and Hon. C. 51. Laytou, of
Anglaize, permanent secretary. Mr. Finley
on taking the chair made a speech congrat
ulating the convention on the return of
Democratic supremacy to the country and
rehearsing the work done by the present
administration. He then made a strong
arraignment of the Bepublican legisla
ture, especially for its abuse" of
power in the senate. He anthematied the
Bepublican majority of the supreme court
as having prostituted their high power to
partisan uses. At the conclusion of Chair
man Finley 's speech the committee on rules
reported and the report was adopted.
The platform congratulates the country
that the party of the people has been re
stored to power and indorsed President
Cleveland's administration; deplores the
deaths of Durbin Ward, Tilden, Hendricks,
McClellan, Seymour and Hancock; re
allirms the tariff plank of the last national
and state platforms; approves of paying
out the surplus revenues on the interest
bearing debt; demands the maintenance of
both gold and silver as a basis of our
money system; approves the course of
congress in forfeiting and restoring to the
public domain for homesteads of
unearned lands granted to railroads;
approves the course of the administration
in protecting American citizens abroad; ex
tends sympathv to Gladstone and Paruell;
denounces the usurpation of the lieutenant

mittee, called the convention to order and
after making a few remarks, instructed ex

Guano Rvpids, Mich.. Aug. IS. The
Greenback state convention met at 10:o0
this morning and organized by electing W.
P. Ennes, of Grand Rapids, as permanent
chairman. The platform adopted approves
the Jeffersonian idea of the construction of
the constitution of the United States, and
as the constitution expressly declares that
congress shall have power to coin (or create)
money and regulate the value thereof, we
demand that congress should create money
for a uniform measusement of values con
stituting gold, silver and paper in sufficient
quantity to meet tne wants ol commerce
and trade, receivable alike for public and
private debts, and the exorcise of this power
should not be delegated to private corpora

The Gicat Convention in Chicago
Immense Crowd and Much En
thusiasm. Chicago, August IS. There is much
speculation as to"the number of delegates
to be present at the opening of the Irish
Xational league convention at 2 o'clock to
day. Under the constitution as many a3
2,300 may come, but it is questionable
whether more than 1,200 will form the de
liberative body. Peimsj'lvania comes with
about 17o and Massachusetts with 100.
Among the lesser delegations Louisiana,
Minnesota and Xebraska figure with tliirty
each and Iowa with about forty. It is ex
pected that one of the first measures in
troduced will be the enforcement of the
unit rule, hence the representation of the
two first named states are of great import
ance. At the Pennsylvania caucus last
night it instructed its chairman to cast the
vote of its delegation in favor of Hugh
McCaffery for president, and Charles Mc
Leave, of Philadelphia, for secretarv of the
Xational league.
The scenes about the lobbies of the lead
ing down town hotels this forenoon were
not unlike tuose of preceding national
political conventions. The delegates to
the Irish Xational League present in the
city number about fourteen hundred and
when not engaged in obtaining credentials
to admit them to the floor of the conven
tion hall and in obtaining tickets of admis
sion for their friends, were actively caucus
ing in behalf of favorite leaders for the
presidency. Dr. O'Reilly, the treasurer of
the league, arrived.this morning and began
to pass upon the credentials of delegates.
They completed their labors shortly after
10 o'clock, in time for the opening of the
convention at 2 o'clock the hour named by
the national committee. The four Irish
members of Parliament here will be made
members of the committee on resolutions
and given seats in the convention so that
the platform adopted may be in harmony
with Mr. Parncll's position.
The the throng around the convention
hall became very great shortly before the
convention began its work. It was 2 o'clock
before anything approaching the semblance
of order could be discerned on the iloor of
the convention hall. Balconies and boxes
were crowded to their utmost capacity
when the slight figure of President Egaii
appeared ami he rapped the assemblage to
order. Just prior to this Mrs. Parnell
reached the convention hall and her pres
ence being noted she was greeted with tre
mendous cheering. Another burst of ter
rific applause broke out when Michael
Davitt entered the hall. President Egan
then delivered an address.
The entire audience rose to their feet iikt
one man and cheered themselves hoarse
when Michael Davitt, leaning on the arm of
Patrick Egan and followed by the remain
ing Irish aelegates and other officers of the
national league, entered the hall. The vis
itors and officers made their way to the
stage amid the shouts and plaudits of ame
eiowd, and the first move was spontane
ously toward Mrs. Paruell. Davitt and the
others warmly shook her by the hand while
the cheering of the American delegates and
audience seemed to know no bounds. The
stage was occupied exclusively by officer
of the league, the lady friends of Mrs. Par
nell and the Irish visitors.
After five minutes of welcome speeches,
hand shaking and three cheers for the
great Irish embassadors, a wait of some lit
tle time ensued. Then an "exquisitely
wrought floral harp was brought in and
placeu lefore the president's chair. As
President Egan arose there were bursts of
cheering from the convention, renewed
again and again. The words from his lips j
were emiiuMasuc in reierence io juenaei
Davitt. The applause during hlv. Egan's
address was so frequent it seehied to break
forth almost at the end of ercrv sentence.
At the close of Mr. Egan's
came the phrase. "Peaceable

Then addressing Davitt and the other
visitors from abroad the speaker pledged
the convention to a united sentiment
and action in the service of Ireland and her
chosen representatives, Parnell and his lieu
tenants. Concluding he begged the mem
bers of the convention to be sober, earnest
and forbearing in their counsels, thinking
of no policy except the policv presented bv
3Ir. Davitt and by the representatives o"f
the parliamentary partv, who are the
mouthpiece of Charles 'Stewart Parnell.
At the conclusion of Mr. Fitzgerald's ad
dress Alex Sullivan offered the following
Resolved, That the delegates from each
state and territory and froin the District of
Columbia and Canada be and arc hercbv in
structed to report to the convention as soon
as possible a representative on each of the
following committees: credentials, resolu
tions, constitution and permanent organi
zation. Resolved, That Hon. William O'Brien,
Hon. JoImE. Redman, M. P., Hon. John
Deasy. M. P., the father of the Irish
League, 3Iichael Davitt, are hereby ap
pointed members of the committee on" reso
lutions as representatives of Ireland.
The reslutions were unanimously adopted.
J he chairman announced next in order
be the appointment of the committee indi
cated. Mr. O 'Moony, of Illinois, moved
that a recess of ten minutes be taken for
the purpose of enabling delegates from
each state to confer in regard to their ap
pointments on these committees. Some spir
ited argument followed; then Lewis Kelly,
of Minnesota, moved as a substitute that
the committee an credentials be appointed
from the different representative and then
the convention to adjourn until S p. in.
The previous question w as ordered and
the substitute adopted unanimously.
A scene of wild confusion ensued during
recess. The names of the members of the

Xew York had still disagreed and that
delegation was allowed to make its report
to a meeting of the committee on creden
tials which was called for tonight.
On reassembling the convention adjourn
ed until S p. m.
The Xew York delegation remained in
the hall until long after the adjournment of
the afternoon session of the convention.
Their discussion was decidedly heated,
but they finally settled on a compromise of
Wm. J". Rielly, of Syracuse, .13 their repre
sentative on the credential committee.
At S:J0 p. in., the hall was filled to over
flowing as Davitt, entered the hall, lie was
wildly cheered. He introduced Mr.
O'Brien, Editor of the United Ireland, who
spoke briefly in acknowledgement of the
convention's welcome.
AIck Sullivan then moved that the roll
of states be called for various delegations
to prc-ent the names of their representa
tives on credentials. The motion prevailed
and without further opposition the roll was
begun and proceeded without incident for
perhaps haif an hour. Father O'Brien, of
the Ohio delegation, arose to ask if at this
stage of proceedings i would be
proper to send a cablegram of
congratulations; to Gladstone and Parnell,
and proposed drafts for same.
Alex. Sullivan submitted that under the
rales such matter should go to the commit
tee on resolutions nnd the chair sustained
the point of order.
After considerable dfecussiou Father
O'Brien withdrew (lie motion and -the con
vention adjourned until 10 a. m. tomorrow.
