TERE HAUTE, Ind., Nov. 19.-E. V. Debe, preesident of the American Raill way Union, has severely denounced At torney General Olney in connection with his opinion rendered a few days ago in the case of Philadelphia and Reading trainmen, and which the grand officers of other railroad orders and labor lead ere generally have praised so highly, Mr. Deb. said: "Olney went entirely out of his way in writing this opinion, and by so doing stamped himself a hypocrite, as it was written solely for political effect. It wee prepared before election, but would never have come to light had the demo crate been successful in the contest. In addition to being a notorious corpora tion tool, Mr. Olney's opinion stampl him as being acheap political trickster and hypocrite. In the trouble last sum mer he disregarded every law, and outraged justice in pursuing, hounding and imprisoning railroad employes in his eagernes to serve corporations, whose creature he is, and whose bidding he has done with with abject severity ever since he donned the robes of office. He more than any other, unless it be Cleveland, is responsible for the over whelming and irretrievable rout of the democratic party. While the trusts, monopolies and combines have with im punity violated the plain laws of the country he has slept at his poet. Not for one moment has he failed to serve his masters, whether by silence and in action when they were violators of the law, or by pursuing with unrelenting hostility the workmen of the country when an offense, real or imaginery, was alleged. Richard Olney has earned an eternity of odium, nor will any hypocrit ical plea of consideration for the rights of the laboring men now relieve him of universal execration. There is no slight satisfaction in the reflection that neither he nor those responbible for his appoint ment will ever again have the oppor tunity to barter away the influence which public office confers for corporate favors. "To have been consistent when the constitutional tights of the Reading em ployes were struck down by Judge Dal las, Olney should have sanctioned the outrage and backed it up with the legal machinery of his big office. This would have been in accord with his whole ofi cial career." EARTHQUAKKR SHOCKS Frighten People Till They Live in the Open Air.

THE BRUTE DID CURSING His Wife and Child, and Shouting "Vive I'Anarchle," "Down With Religion." BARc:rLONA, Nov. 21.-Jose Salvador French, anarchist, who threw a dyna mite bomb in the Lyceum theater in this city Nov. 7, 1893, was executed this morning. French was undoubtedly one of the most dangerous anarchists of re cent years. This became generally known at the time of his arrest for con spiracy in the Barcelona outrage, by which over 20 people were killed and about 50 were seriously injured. Franch was about 32 years of age, a native of Castelsaras, province of Ternal. He came of a respectab'e family. At the age of 14 he left home and came to Bar celona, where he speedily became a leader among the anarchists. Twice after his capture he attempted suicide. French displayed the utmost bravado, shouting, "Down with religiont" and died almost with the words of an anar chist song on his lips. The wife and ,daughter of the condemned man were admitted to see him in the chapel, but their tenderness and sympathy were ut terly thrown away upon the anarchist. He scoffed at the supplications of the priests to prepare himself for death, and laughed derisively at reference" to a fu ture life. The anarchist's wife made a last effort to soften his heart, but he roughly told her to go away, and she tearfully withdrew after kissing him. After his wife left the chapel Franch continued to treat the priest with contempt, saying among things, "I fooled you nicely." "Hypocrsey is now the weapon which I have shown Anarchists how to use." At 8 a. m. the judge and other officers entered the chapel and told Franch to prepare for death. The executioners as they dressed the prisoner for the scaffold, were con tinually insulted by the desperate man. French shouted, "Do your mineerible work; you are only the tools of the bour geoise." Franch was surrounded by sol dieres and accompanied by nmembers of the society known as "Brothers of the Good Death.' Franch walked trembling to the scaffold, which was erected in the large courtyard of the prison. Troope were present to keep spectators at a proper distance from the scaffold. A' the anarchist mounted the steps leading to the platform, upon which was the garrot. he shouted, "Down with all reli gion," "Vive l'Anarchie." The execu tioners then seized him, and as he strug gled and cried, they forced him into the chair, at the back of which was the garrot. Franch was strapped down to the seat, and as this work was being performed, he renewed his anarchist crnes and tried to sing an anarchist hymn, but he stopped in the midst of his death song to implore his executioners to hurry their final preparations. The trembling prisoner's neck was encircled by the fatal collar, the screw was swiftly applied and death was almost instantan eous. Only a minute and a half elapsed from the time French mounted the plat form until he was pronounced dead. The military band then played and the executioners moved away from the plat form. The body of Franch, however. with the collar of the garrot around his neck, will remain exposed until sundown. It was viewed by large crowds. At Sun down the Society of Brothers of the Good Death will take possession of the body and convey it to the cemetery. Old Enough to Die. MIDDr.rtuORO, Ky., Nov. 21.-The Rev.
