mayor again, his voice scarcely above a
whisper. A moment later be sank into
unconsciousness, and 20 minutes after
receiving hie wound Mr. Harrison waa
dead.
PROMPT ACTION OF TIIE POLICE.
When young Harriaon came down
•tairs and learned the cause of tbe
■hooting, ht turned in a burglar alarm,
and even before be reached hia father's
•Ida, a patrol wagon filled with officers
from the Lake-street station was dash
ing toward the mayor's houße. By the
time the officers arrived all trace of tbe
murderer was lost, and even before the
mayor breathed bis last officers from
every etation in the city were on the
outlook for the murderer. Every possi
ble effort wae made to eecure medical at
tendance for Harrison, but when Dr.
Lyman, tbe first physician to arrive,
reached tbe mayor's side, be wae a dead
man.
THE MURDRRKR SURRENDERS.
About 25 minutes after the shooting,
Sergeant Frank McDonald was standing
in the office of the Despfaines-street po
lios station. Every available officer had
already hurried out to work on the case,
and McDonald wbb preparing to follow.
The door waa pushed gently open and
in walked a small, smooth-shaven,
poorly-dressed man, carrying a revolver
in hiß hand. He Bhook like a man with
the palay, hia face was white and drawn,
great dropa of perspiration were cross
ing each other down his face, and his
tottering limbs seemed scarcely able to
bold him up. Looking at McDonald
Straight in the eves, hesaid: "I did it."
"You did it?" aiked McDonald.
"Yes; I did."
"Did what?" said the officer, aa he
laid one hand on tbe fellow's eboulder,
and with the other took the revolver.
"I ahot Mayor Harrison, and that is
what I shot him with," was the reply.
"What made you do it?" asked Mc-
Donald.
"He aaid be would make me corpora
tion couneel, and be did not; that is what
I shot him for."
Prendergaßt wae trembling bo he
could Bcarcely stand, and the officer led
him to a cbair and asked him a few
more questions, to which Prendergast
would only make tbe reply be bad first
given as to the cause of the shooting.
He said after leaving Harrison's house
be bad taken a etreet car and started to
ward tbe Deaplainee-Btreet station, with
the object of giving himself up.
"The car did not go very fast," aaid
he, "or I would have been here eooner."
EXCITED CROWDS GATHER.
The cell door waa barely cioaed behind
the murderer when an excited crowd
began gathering about tbe police sta
tion. Patrol wagons rattled up to the
place, caba and carriages came by tbe
Bcore, and the occupants crowded and
pushed their way into the office. Per
sonal friends of tbe dead mayor, city
officials and cnriouß persons crowded
against each other in a wild endeavor to
learn if the story, which spread like
wildfire through tbe city, was true. An
immense throng gathered, and laboring
men who stopped on their way home
added their Voices to the subdued 1
threats of vengeance, for Mr. Harrieon
waa popular with the masses.
Tbe atreeta were Boon filled with
people, and tbe officers, as tbey looked
out of the station windows upon the sea
of angry facee, became alarmed for the '
safety of their prisoner. A baßty con
ference was held, and it wae decided to
remove Prendergast to the central sta
tion in the city ball. The trembling,
pale-faced man wbb led between stal
wart officers to the rear door and hur
ried away in tbe darknesß.
TAKEN TO A PLACE OF SAFETY.
Meantime tidings of tbe murder swept
like an electric shock through the city.
Everybody seemed to gather about the
Central station. Bulletins were posted
in prominent down-town places and
about tbem eager throngs surged and
struggled. Tbe newspaper offices were
besieged by eager questioners anddown
town business was for a time at a stand
still.
Before the prisoner reached the city
hall ths news of his coming had been
communicated to the crowd. The mur- 1
derer was rushed through the throng
and taken by a private entrance into
Chief of Detectives Shea's office. The |
doors were barred. Officere hurried i
from adjacent stations to guard the
place.
The prisoner, as soon aa he reached j
tbe office, sank exhausted into a chair.
His head fell and bis livid face aud j
staring eyes presented a ghastly picture.
He is a slender man, perbapa 24 years
of age, with a beardless and cadaverous
face and a stupid, almost idiotic, expres
sion.
THE CAUSE OF THE CRIME.
For a time the man refused to anawer
any questione, and then iv a scarcely
audible voice be said: ""I'm sick, I'm
sick."
Chief Shea told him he waa a doctor
and asked: "Why did you kill the
mayor?"
"Well," the man responded feebly,
"he told me he would mal:e me corpor
ation couneel and did not do it. so I
shot him. That's all; Is. ot him."
"What ia your name ."' asked tbe de
tective.
"Prende'gast; Patrick Eugene, or
Eugene Patrick, makes no difference
which."
"Where do you live?"
"I don't know; around here some
where 1 guesß. I don't live at the rail
road tracks ; I'll teil you that," he said
emphatically.
The officers experienced a good deal
of difficulty in further examination, but i
at last were convinced the murderer I
bad been a newspaper carrier, whose
route was iv the vicinity of the mayor's
home. For Beveral hourß his examina
tion continued, but lit. le of importance
was developed.
Other witnesses were examined and
the prisoner wati finally placed in a cell
under the city hall, and additional
policemen stationed about the building
for the night's vigil.
THREATS OF LYNCHING.
All night long crowds came aud went
aboui the place. The bitter feeling
againet the murderer became intensified
and significant but subdued remarks of
a convenient lamp poet and swilt ven
geance were frequently heard.
Atone time during tbe evening, bb a
carnage drove rapidly down the street,
a young man shouted, "There he goeß."
There was an immediate rush for the
retreating vehicle, but aome oneebonted
tbat Prendergaet was atill in tbe chief's
office, and tbe crowd returned.
Harrison's lai-t words.
Mr. Chalmers said late tonight, re
garding the shooting:
"I expressed to Harrison the hope that
! , he waa not badly wounded, but he said,
\'lam a dead man.' He repeated this
> several timee and sank bo rapidly that
iwe knew tbere was no hope for him.
Tbe family, of couree, are utterly pros
trated. Young Harriaon caid to me:
'I told father long ago something like
tbia would happen. He waa too eaay in
letting people in to ace him, cranks and
everybody.'
"After' we carried Harrison to the
couch," continued Chalmers, "he said
it was naeless to try to do anything for
' him, and his last words, as nearly aa I
1 can remember, were: 'Give me water.
I Send for Annie. Give me water.' "
PRENDERQA6T UNDOUBTEDLY CRAZY.
"Prendergast is crazy," said Corpora
' tion Counsel Krauß, who was perhaps
the closest friend Harrison bad. "I
know bim well, and he ceiled at my of
fice and told me be was going to be ap
pointed my successor. The man waa ao
palpably out of hie mind that I did not
■ consider it worth while to talk seriously
with him. 1 spoke to the mayor about
it and he said he bad received threaten
-1 ing letters from a fellow but paid no at
j tention to them, aa tbe man waa in
| sane."
THE DEAD MAN* FIANCEE.
M:bb Auuie Howard, tbe fiancee of
1 Mr. Harrison, waa in the house ot the
i time the fatal shot was fired. In accord
• ance with the wonnded man's request
| she waa at once summoned and was
preeent when the end came. MissHow
j ard'a grief wbb pitiable. She was com-
I pletely overcome and was taken to the
house of Carter Harriaon, jr., where she
spent the night.
Carter Harrison, jr., waa at the park
, when the news of bis father's death
reached bim, and be hastened home.
Mrs. Ousley, the mayor's daughter,
who resides nearly five miles from her
father's residence, received the newa by
telephone and hastened to Ashland
boulevard, but her father was dead fully
20 minutes before she arrived.
POPULAR INDIGNATION.
At 1:30 o'clock this morning the
crowd around tho Harrison residence
dispersed. The same quiet is not pre
valent in other portions of the city,
however, Harrison had a strong hold
on the people, and among hia friends
indignation ugainst the murderer is in
tense. Several meetings have already
been held, and Chief Brennan sent out
a general order at 1 o'clock for the po
lice to disperse all meetings and crowds.
The leading business men of Chicago
were in attendance upon the Commer
cial club banquet when tbe news of
Harriaon's death reached tbem. The
banquet immediately adjourned amid
general expressions of most sincere re
gret at tbe tragic death of tbe city's
chief executive.
THE UURDERF.D MAYOR'S CAREER.

In 1891 he purchased the Chicago
Times, which be edited until elected
mayor last April, and which his
boob now own. He was married
in ]Bob to bupiey Preston. She died in
Europe in 1870. In 1882 he married

and conventions from all parts of the
country and tbe world, and hiß welcome
addresses constitute a volume of happy
thougbta and suggeatiouß. Hie last ad
drees was delivered today to the vißit
ing mayors and municipal officers.
THE NEWS AT WASHINGTON.
The Capital Startled by Mayor Harri
son's Tragic Death.
Washington, Oct. 28. —Nothing in years
has co startled trie people of Washing
ton as the tragic death of Mayor Carter
H. Harrison tonight. The news was re
ceived here in an Associated Press dis
patch in le°9 than 10 minutes alter the
horrible occurrence, and iv a short time
public men fiom every quarter oi the
city hastened to the Associated Press
headquarters to hear tbe particulars.
Vice.President Stevenson said to an
Associated l'resa reporter: "I am
shocked to hear of the terrible tragedy.
It almo3t passes belief. I iißve known
llarribou intimately almost a life time.
We served in congress together nearly
20 years airo. lie was one of tbe ablest
men I have ever known, and Chicaifo
never had a more efficient mayor. He
was one of the marked men of his titut
aml hia loss will be deeply felt iv Chi
cago und Illinois. I (sympathize with
hie family most deepiy in this great be
reavement."
Senator John M. Palmer of Illinois
Baid he waß so iiorritied by the newe of
Mayor Harrison's death tbat he scarcely
knew what to say. "I have known
(Jailer Harrison intimately," he said,
"for nearly thirty yeara, and hie assae-
Biuation is almost ac shocking to me as
that of Presiduut Oarlield. I do not
know of anything in the history of Il
linois politics more to be deplored. I
have known him constantly since we
were boys, and 1 have alwayo considered
him one of my beat friends. His chances
of becoming the next senator from Il
linois were good, and I heard many poli
ticians exprefiß the belief that he would
have practically no opposition. His
death is a serious blow to the Democratic
party in Illinois, ac he was one of the
most energetic workers they had. Hiß
death was bo sudden, so unexpected aud
bo shocking to me that 1 can scarcely
realize it is true."
Senator Voorhees. said: "I consider
tbe death of Mayor Harrison a calamity,
not to Chicago alone, but to the whole
country. He was a man of national
prominence and one of the foremost
men of the Democratic party."

NO CAHUENGA CHINESE.
Tha Farmers of That Valley Drlva tha
Mongols Oat.
Again have tba farmer* of this vicinity
asserted most positively tbat tbe China
| men must go. Tbis time it is tbe peace
able residents of tbe Cabnenga valley
who have arisen in their might at tha
dead of night and tired the whole lot o!
Mongolian coolies from the delightful
valley to tha northwest of town.
The farmers became disgusted with
the delay in enforcing the Geary act,
and took measures to execute the law as
regards their own district. They held a
mass meeting late Friday night and de
cided upon immediate and decisive
action in regard to tbe Chinese laborers
in the valley.
As a result abont 100 masked men
armed with all manner of weapons
started their midnight crusade against
unsuspecting Jobn.
Tbe three principal ranches, the
Denker, Hancock and Oriflitb, were
visited and the Chinese laborers ordered
to "move on."
The Chinamen were scared out of
their wits, and many jumped through
tbe windows and headed across the
fields. Othere were captured.
Varicua other ranches were visited
and tbe Chinese ordered to go.
They were allowed the privilege of
taking tbeir personal effects with them,
but in tbe majority of cases John was
satisfied with tbe assurance of a whole
skin so made no attempt by going after
bis clothes to delay his separation from
bis unknown captors.
The captives to tbe nnmber of about
18 were marched to the end of the
Temple-street cable road and told tbat
Chinatown lay to the east, and that it
would be more healthy for them there
tban in the Cahuenga valley in the fu
ture.
Judging from the alacrity with which
tbe Chinese started towards tbe city,
they evidently agreed with the Cahuenga
vigilantes.
So far as is known no bodily injury
was offered to tbe Chinese. Many
amusing situations took place, but the
ranchers were out for business and
allowed nothing to deter tbem from
tbeir purpose.
Tbe friends of the bounced Chinamen
have placed the matter in tbe hands of
Attorney A. B. Hotcbkisa, who stated
yesterday that he will bring a suit for
$35,000 damages against tbe parties con
cerned in tbe affair. He left for San
Francisco yesterday to consult with an
attorney of that city in regard to the
preeent affair.
