CHICAGO'S GREAT GRIEF.
The City Overwhelmed With
Sorrow and Shame.
Universal Mourning for the
The Assassin Shows No Bie;n of Re-
jrret for His Crime.
He Simply Claims That He Did His
Duty—Numerous Tokens and Messages
of Sympathy—The Funoral
By the Associated Press.
Chicago, Oct. 20 —Chicago today is
overwhelmed with sorrow and shame.
Her citizens mourn for the man who
stood closer to the people's heart than
any other who has lived or died within
her boundary linos, or has been in any
way connected with the city's growth
and progress. The feeling of shame is
that jußt at tbe cloao of the greatest and
most glorious period of her municipal
history ; ju3t at the dawn o! a brighter
period than she ever before experienced,
the dark crime of murder should leave a
red blot on her record. From all ranks
and conditions of men there comes but
one voice, and it ia that of grief. Carter
Harrison was without doubt the most
popular man among the residents of
Chicago. lie had more of the spirit of
audacity, endu ance and activity char
acteristic of Chicago, than any other
man. The feeling of sorrow is not
stronger than the mortified civic pride
which burdens them down. There may
be for Chicago days of greater pride or
higher glory tban she has yet beheld;
there can never be a day of greater grief
or more poignant sorrow.
The remains of Mr. Harrison lay all
day in the room which was always occu
pied by him as a sleeping apartment.
Late this afternoon a death mask was
executed, and the result is said to he a
most life-like representation. Tomor
row the body will be made ready for
lying in st:ite at the city hall.
TIIK CORONKR'm INQCKST.
The inquest on the body of Mayor
Harrison was held today at his late resi
dence, fur a technical descrip
tion of the wounds, bnt little new infor
mation was elicited. The verdict was
in accordance with the facts, (Hid rec
ommended that Prendergast be held tot]
murder until I'nacharjted by due process
of law. I'r, mlergust was present at the
inquest, and ' . : ..'.aim-it stolid inditl'.nv
fence, except when attracted by tiie
presence of Mrs. Chalmers. He asked
if she was Mra. Harrison, and said he
wanted to tell her he was sorry for her
The Harrison residence was thronged
with sorrowing friends all day, and tbe
eidewalks in the vicinity were impassa
ble. Tne members of the family bore
up bravely nnder the "terrible alfliction,
the real significance of wbich could
hardly be realized by them. MiBS How

prostrated bp the shock, leated quietly

TOKENS OF SYMPATAT.
Telegrams and letters of sympathy in
great numbers were received from pub
lic and private friends of the late mayor
in various parts of the country. Secre
tary of State Gresham telegraphed from
Washington his sympathy.
At the request of Mr?. Potter Palmer,
the reception in her honor by the na
tional comiuiseioners, to he given to
morrow evening, has been postponed
indefinitely on account of the tragic
death of the mayor. The farewell re
ception to tbe French commissioners
has also been postponed. The number
of societies that held meetings today to
take action in the death of the mayor is
legion, and the family is literally over
whelmed with copies of resolutions of
Fx-Preßident Harrison telegraphed
from Indianapolis: "My daughter joins
me in offering the fullest sympathy in
your appalling sorrow."
Messages of condolence were received
from Henry Irving and the Japanese
commissioners to the fair.
The arrangements for the funeral of
the murdered man will not be made un
til aiter the special meeting of tbe city
council tomorrow. It, however, has
been decided that tbe obsequies will
take place Wednesday. Mayor Harri
son's body wili lie in state at least one
day in the city hall. Tne active pall
bearers will be eight police captains.
The honorary pall-bearers include Hon.
Thomas W. Palmer, H. N. Higinbotham,
Gen. Nelson A. Miles, ex-Governor
Ogleaby, Judge Trumbull, Gen. Fitz
simons, P. D. Armour, ex-Mayors Koohe,
Medill und Washburne.
EVIDENCES OF SORROW.
Seldom baa anything awakened such
deep eorrow among the residents of
Chicago as the death of Mr. Harrison.
The most signal evidence of sorrow will
be the absence of all festivities at the
fair tomorrow. Director-general Davis
has issued general orders announcing
that the ceremonies scheduled for to
morrow in connection with the closing
of the exposition will ba wholly dis
pensed with, and the public is requested
to assennile in Festival hall at 1 o'clock
to take suitable action ou the death of
tbe mayor. It is further ordered that
the flags upon all the buildings within
the grounds shall remain at half must.
THE MURDERER'S CELL.
Prendergast, Harrison's murderer, is
now lodged in a cell at the county jail.
He still sticks to the story that he
killed the mayor for no other reason
than that he was not made corporation
counsel, aud insists that, he had entire
right to do as he did. The cell in which
Prendergaßt is lodged is the one in which
Lotus Lingg, tho anarchist, and Dr.
Scudder committed euicide.
HE DID HIS DUTY.
When Prendereast was lodged in the
county jail be waa not disposed to talk,
but aaked to see the papers. They
were handed him, bnt the local pages
containing the Btory of his crime were
not given him, and lie quickly asked for '
'an account of tho murder. He read it
iin a mechanical manner and then said:
"I did my duty."
'•Did Harrison say anything to you
when you met him in the house?''was
"No, I drew my revolver and tired.
! At the first shot Harrison shouted 'mur
der,' but I did not hear him say any
THE ACTING MAYOR.
Ojcar D. Witherell, city comptroller
of Chicago, who, by the death of Mayor
Harrison, becomes acting mayor, is a
Republican. He is a native of New
Hampshire, but removed to Chicago
many years ago and became a prominent
lumberman. Sqmethiag tike 12 years
ago be was elected to the city council of
Chicago, and served for ut least two
terms as chairman of the finance com
mittee. Throe years ago he was elected
preeident of the Globe National bank,
and last spring, on Harrison's election,
Mr. Witherell was appointed comptrol
ler. He is about 00 years of age.
SORROW IN NEW YORK.
New Yobs, Oct. 29.—Nothing else was
discussed in the clubs and hotels today
but the CDwardly and unprovoked aeaaß
siualion of Mayor Harrison. Tiie tra
gedy waß universally deplored, and
wonder was expressed by many that the i
murderer escaped lynching. One of the !
1 most prominent Chu'a?oaaß in New :
' York is Victor F. I.awr.on. publisher of I

Indianai-oi/s, Oct. 20.—Ex-president

asked for au expression relative to the
tragedy in which Mayor Carter Harri

"What was the relation between

"Well, I can hardly say; we were dia-

THE MAYOR OP DENVER A MARKED
Ho Is Denounced as a Perjurer by
American Protective Association
and His Grave Ordered
Denver, Oct. 29.—The secret organi •
' station, known as the American Protec
tive association, now demahdiug atten-.
! tion at the hands of congress, haß gained
j an unusually Btrong foothold in Colorado
and is making a light to gain control of
the state's political organization. But
little attention waß paid to it until after
the local elections, when it wag dis
covered that the society managed to se
cure nearly half the nominations on
! each ticket. The people rebelled against
| tbis, and are now striving to defeat tbe
| society. Two years ago, the present
mayor, Van Home, became a member
! of tbesociety through mistepresentation.
j When he took office he appointed a
Catholic as police inspector. The
American Protective association
demanded tbe inspector's removal, and
when this was refused, adopted a reso
lution denouncing Van Home as a
traitor and perjurer, and declaring that
his crave should be desecrated. It fur
ther resolved that a likeness of tbe
mayor, together with a copy of the reso
lutions, be distributed to every judge of
the association, with the request that
the Bame be read, and that "Marion D.
Van Home, traitor aud perjurer," be
proclaimed at every meeting, and finally
that an unknown committee shall mark
hia grave: "Here lies a traitor."

COURAGE OF THE MOORS

Proud Old Spain.
Spanish Soldiers Driven Before
the Moorish Moh.
Desperate Fighting in the Trenches
The Death or the SpanUh Commander
lias Created a Sensation—The War
to Ho l'roeecuted on a
By the Associated Press.
Madrid, Oct. 29.—The battle yester
day and Friday night about the trenches
before Meliila, and which, as exclusively
cabled to the Associated Press, resulted
in the death of General Margallo, who
commanded the Spanish troops, caused
a proiound eenßation here. The Span
iards wore amazevl at the courage shown
by the Moore. In the face of a terrible
fire the Moora charged recklessly, driv
ing the Spaniards before them and cut
ting the telephone and telegraph wirea.
The Moora again attacked with the in
tention of cutting off the retreat ot the
Spaniards. Tiie movement would un
doubtedly have been successful had it
not been for the ekilllul manner in
which the guns of the Spanieh warship
Venacito were handled. The Spaniards
retreated inside the forts.
CARNAGE IN THE TRENCHES.
Moors, regardless of danger, suc
ceeded in entering the Spanish trenches
and capturing two modern field pieces
and a supply of ammunition. But the
Moors, unable to withstand the attack
of cold steel in the hands of the Spanish
soldiers, began to retreat, ihe Span
iards directed an attack against the
Moors, who recaptured the two euub
which the Moora had been using freely
against the forts and warships. Nothing
seemed to etand before the charge of the
Fatreuiadura regiment and a battalion
of coldiera undergoing punishment tor
breaches of military law. They preßßed
onward, bajonetting the Moors who
made any stand, and managed to recover
the two field pieces.
A HAND TO HAND COFFLICT.
During the panic which followed the
death of General Margallo, the Moora
succeeded in carrying off the body of
the Spaniah commander, and it was
this more than anything which enabled
the Spanieh officers to rally their men
and make the charge which drove the
Moora from the trenches. During the
rush onward of the Spanish troops, a
detachment of them pursued the Moors
who were carrying away tho general's
body, and after c desperate hand to
hand contliet the Spaniards succeeded
in recovering the body of their late
commander, and eventually escorted it
No systematic pursuit of the Moors
waa attempted, owing to the insufficient
force of soldiers at Fort Cabrizas, but it
is understood General Ortego is making
preparations to take terrible vengeance
upon the Moors in the death of General
Margallo when he lias enough men
under his command to uiuke a movement
iv force enough to chastise the Moors.
When a steamer brought the above de
tails of the battle to Malaga, firing was
Rtill proceeding, aud it is reported the
Moors' made another attack upon the
Spanish troops. General Ortego is
known to have sent an urgent dispatch
asking for reinforcements aud expressing
hiß inability to do any more than hold
his own uulesß reinforced hy a large body
WAR ON A LARGE SCALE.
Spain iB now making war preparations
ou a very largo scale, which will tax the
resources ot the government to the ut
most. There wa9 a monster demonstra
tion here today. Crowds were parading
the streets, bearing banners and singing
patriotic songn and doing everything
possible to urge the government to hurry
reinforcements to Meliila in order that
the loss suffered by the Spaniards may
be promptly avenged.
Additional dispatches received this
evening Bay the fighting continued to
day, and it is rumored there has been
periouß loss of* life. The situation of the
Spaniards is said to be growing desper
ate. General Campos, commander-in
chief of tbe Spanieh forces, advised the
government to promptly issue an order
lor the mobilization of all the reserve
trooDß iv Spaiu. A crowd of people, ex
cited by the rumors in circulation, made
nn attack upon the civil governor at
Puerto del Sol, causing the governor to
take refuge in tiie bureau of the minis
ter of the interior, where the men at the
door were severely beaten by the angry
Dublin. Oct. 20.—1n a speech today

Berlin, Oct. 29 —Tuesday the elec-

ination of the body, however, a bullet
hole was found in the skull, which led
to the suspicion that the man had been
murdered. The testimony before the
coroner's jury strengthened the suspi
cion, and the jury returned a verdict of
murder by parties unknown. Yes
terday the sheriff caused the arrest
of Richard Yatte, keeper of a saloon
where Maloney was last seen alive, and
James Madden. John Smith, John
Casey, G. A. Cunningham, J. Devry,
John Donele and John Walsh, section
men employed ou the Cornwall section
of the Southern Pacific railroad at the
time of the murder. They were brought
to Martinez and are now lodged in the
county jail. Their preliminary examin
ation will be held on Wednesday next,
and the officers are quite confident the
guilty ones will be held to answer before
the superior court.
