For several weeks there ha» been con

$ »4.6*30 50 to the common school fand; but
at the opening of business this morning
onl? $^8.?<y appears to the credit of the
tioneral Uevei,ue fund. As thts is the
only fund from whi«h money can be
drawn to pay the cnnfbt ex peases of the
State, it will be seen that Ohio's tiuances
are getting in a had shape
Since yesterday Auditor Kiesewetter re
fused to issue warrants aa there was abso
lutely no money in the treasury. At pres
ent there is uearly $100,000 in outstanding
bills which can only he paid ont of the
llenera! Revenue fund, and within the next
few days the State institutions mnst have
from $150,000 to $200,000. With $88.89
in the tre*nry to day the prospects are
not encouraging tor those holding claims
against the State.
There is but one way in which ic raise
money now, and that is for the Auditor of
State to anticipate the December tax, bat
as that tax is not yet du« it is a question
whether the county auditors will honor the
drafts on them. Unless the Auditor does
anticipate this tax and it is paid, the State
will be iwactk-ally bankrupt.

Chicago, November 12.—The doors of
the undertaking establishment to which
the bodies of the dead Anarchist« were
taken alter the execution, yesterday, were
thrown open at t> o'clock this morning ami
the crowd which had heen waiting to view
the remains began to tile in.
Only the bodies of Parsons and Fischer
were left to gratify the morbid curiosity of
the crowd, the reniai us of Spies aud Kngle
having already been removed. Occasion
ally one of the curious would mutter
something as he gazod upjn the upturned,
distoited faces of the dead, but in Oct of the
people passed ou silently after a single
glauce at the countenances of the nuich
talked-of men.
At I» o'clock the door was closed. At
that time there was a big crowd outside,
and it was estimated that four or live
thousand people had viewed the remains.
A half hour later the bodies were remov
ed to the late residences of tho Anarchists.
No excitement atteuded the transfer of
the remains.
1»B>10XSÏKATI0NS TO UK l'KOHIBITKl».
It look* very much to day as if the city
authorities would rtfase to allow the
friends of the executed Anarchists to carry
out thtir progtuuime respecting their
fuueials, which are set for to-morrow. It
has been learned from the most re
liable sources that Mayor Koche, Chief
of l'olice Elw-rs;>ld. luspector Bouiield
and Commissioner of Public Works Swift
have had a long conference respecting
what tin-Y would or would not allow. The
Chief aud Mayor are both set against per
■bitting crowds to line the streets through
which the «ortege proposes pa »sing. And
it may lie decided that (he burials of the
"Krds" will have to be made separately.
It is strongly hintvd that the authorities
of Waldheiiu cemeUrv, the one m which
it was proposed to bury the ''Reds" and
ov»-f their graves erect a mouumetit, wore
seriously considering whether ii. was not
their doty lo refuse a resting place for the
Anarchists' remains within their iu
closure- At least they will not allow th«*,
monument.
ANOTHFR KLAO IX« ll»EST.
Au im ident occurred this morning which
♦hows the temper of the law-abiding peo
ple <>f the city. Spies was a member of
the Aurora Turn Verein. Some Socialistic
members of the organization placed au
American tl iff at half-mast ou Aurora Tnru
H «lie It had not been there long before
the owuers c t the building ordered the ilsg
taken down, and it was done. Both the
owners ot the Aurora Turn Halle, it may
be interesting to know, are Germans.
It was also learned this morning that the
Turn Halle owners would most likely re
lus« to allww the body of Spies to lie in
state in the Halle, as proposed
Kdmund Deuss, editor of the Arbeiter
Zeitung, said that he liad not yet fonnd the
composure to write his editorial senti
ments, but he could briefly outliue them
as they would be in the next is-ue of the
paper." "This will be the tenor of our ar
ticle: The history of the world is the
tribunal of the world, aud as Sheriff Mat
soil shall live in history, so shall he stand
arraigned by popular sentiment for his
cruel denial of a few farewell words to the
condemned. He had plenty of time to al
low them even as much as twenty minutes
each, but he refnsed it and strangled Par
sons as he spoke. Such reflections as
these will be tho burden of our editorial."
I>uring this morning the directors of
Wallpeim Ceinctry, had informal talks
among themselves as to the propriety of
having the Anarchists buried in their
ground, Johu Huehler, banker and secre
tiry of the board, said that nothing posi
tive had been determined upon at 1 p. m
He had decided, however, to call a formal
meeting of the board for 2 p. m., at which
the question would I» discussed.
At 10 o'clock the caaket containing the
body ol Fiocber was taken out. It wa*< to
be taken to the home of his wife. It was
quickly lifted into the wagon and an oi!
cloth covering spread over it. Then the
uudertaker and hi« assistants mounted the
box and the wagon was driven out Mil
waukee avenue, followed by a crowd of
small boys, most of the crown people stav
ing behind in hopes of getting a look at
r&raonM. A detail of police just co
ing on duty c.iiite along nt the
time and marched after the wagon.
This treated some commotion along
the way, but it died out when th police
turned ofl' at Novel street. The wagon
with its guard ot boys moved on to the
house of Mrs. Fischer, jnst a bleck east ol
Milwaukee avenue It is a two story frame
structure, and is occupied by several fam
ilies. Mrs. Fischer's apartments are in
the rear on the ground door, and are en
tered through an arch under a rear stair
way, leading from the second story. This
arch was draped with white and black
cambric. Around the house was a great
crowd of women and children, evidently
belonging in the neighborhood. They
were most «idly curious rather than sym
pathetic, and when the wjgon drew up in
front of the house they
('KANED THEIR NICKS
to see what they could.
Mrs. Ficcher was at the house of one of
the neighbors when the body of her hus
band arrived, but as soon as it bad beer
carried into the honae and propwly place*;
she was escorted into her desolate home by
two female friends. She was suffering
greatly and her actions were somewhat
hysterical. She stopped occasionally and
threw her arms about one or the other ot'
her fiiends and wept bitterly. At one
o'clock the curious throng still hung about
the house.
The doors and windows of Chris. Spies'
hoes«, where the body of the dead
anarchist lies were barred and would not
be opened to anyone. Lone stripe« of white
and black crape swung from the door be
low. At the top of the symbols ot monni
ing was a large black rose, made also of
crape, and from the middle of the rose
streams of red flattered in the breeze.
From the moment the dead body arrived
at the residence of August's brother, the
house, has been
SaUtOl'NDKD BY CBOW1X»
of inquirers and spectators. This morning
the assemblage gradually increased in
numbers, «11 anxious to get a glimpse at
the iaceof the famous Anarchist. Nobody
wa« gratilied. Repeated calls at the door
tail«! to elicit any response. The Van
Zandt mansion was tightly closed this
morning At every window Have those in
the npper »tory of the house the cm tains
were drawn so as to wholly shut ont the
light. A transparency of August Spies
hung in the parlor window, and was
thrown into relief by the bnfl' curtain be
hind. Many people glanced up at the
picture as they passed. When a reporter
rang the doorbell a neat-locking colored
girl opened the door.
"Is Mr. Van Zandt at home*" was
asked. ''No, sir," replied the girl.
"Is Miss Van Z*ndt able to bo abont?"
"Yes."
"Will the family attend the funeral to
morrow?''
That was on unfortunate question, for it
shut off the source of information.
•'Are you a reporter?" asked the girl.
"Yes," was the answer.
"Well, then," said she, speaking as
though she was one of the family, "I've
nothing to say, sir, because
H'K ARK .NOT ANARCHISTS
at all, and Mr. Spies is dead. We only
sympathized with him, and we've notbiug
at all to say, sir." With that the girl
bowed and closed the door.
"Oh, Albert! Albert, they murdered
you," cried Mrs. 1'arsons, when she was
permitted to see the body of her dead
husband this morning for the first time
since the execution. The undertaker had
conveyed l'areons' body to his residence at
855 Milwaukee avenue shortly before 11
o'clock. When the street door was opened
Mrs. Parsons was observed, at the he;ul of
the stairs, dressed in a long black wrap
per. Apparently she had rested little
during the last night, tor her eyes were
swollen with much weeping. She was
greatly excited, when she realized that
they were about to bring up her husband
dead, and she immediately commenced
weeping agaiu. A committee went to
her and endeavored to calm lier, bnt she
grew more agitated, until
__ayi'v nxriwt mi/ri'h
her into lier own apartments, and locked
the doors«. She would not listen to their
pleading, and oue was left to see that she
did herwlf uo harm while the others car
ried up the coffin and d* ;>osited it ou two
chairs in the sitting room. The top of the
casket was removed and the calm, pale
features fxpo-sed.
All the time they were taking ofl the lid
Mrs. Parsons was struggling in the room
adjoining and calling the name of her h as
hand.
Little Albert and Lucy, the children,
stood together crying ami the widow sitting
in the corner of the room. When the door
was uulocked the widow rushed out and
threw herself bodi'y ou the coftin, an hys
terical cry escaped her lips, and the poor
womau fell on the floor in a dead faint lie
fore the friends could catch her. The
gathering of morbidly curious Germans
about the street door, heard the cry and a
sensation run through the crowd. As soon
as Mrs. 1'arsoDs had recovered sufficiently
to walk, she ran to her deul, crying and
calling bim by name. Again she fainted
bdore her iips could touch the cold face of
her husband. This time frieuds carried her
away atid uould not let her see the corpse
again.
"Everything is all topsy turvy and we
are ail ;«t s »id Charles Hept, who had
been »-elected as Cuiet Marshall of the Ati
nrchist I mural tomorrow, and who hm

menit ' r.< of the Central Labor Union stood
in consulU>tiou on Milwaukee avenue this
afternoon, near the house in which George

the r. ou» io which Ivtgel's body was lying
in his cv tBi.
"It is our present intention," he con
tinued, "to carry out the programme as
already arranged and have a hig public
funeral to-morrow, but 1 guess we will go
down and see KbersoM this afternoon. It
is not the members or the owners of the
Aurora Turn Halle who object to having
Spies' fanerai held there to-morrow, but
the police. They have told the owners
that they would take away their license
unless they keep us out of there to-mor
row. The own>rs can't help themselves,
as our contract with them provides that
any member of the society may be buried
from the hall, and Spies was;» member."

Four coBius, suggestive ot yesterday s
ghastly business were the first objects that
caught the eye of tha early morning visi
tor at tlie jail to-day f»s he crasse«! the court
yard. They were designed for the bodies
of Parsons, Spies, Fischer and l'ugel. The
undertakers were sent by the friends to
care tor the remains, hat the State sup
plied the teru|K>rary oflir.s, and these were
stacked in court. Mrs. Schwab and Mrs.
Fieiden, who came to see their husbands,
saw them, and with averted eyes passed
them by. The jail wr.s a sombre place
thts morning. Bailiffs, prisoners, report
ers an>l visitors had not yet outworn
the grewsome scenes of yesterday, A
detail of prisouers in the early
morning scrubbed the jail from top
to bottom. The )a-»t remnant of the gal
lows hid been removed yesterday and
packed away in a vacant spot uuder the
jail. Mrs Schwab and her two children,
together with Mr. Schnaubt It, came about
S o'clock, and Fieiden and Schwab were
removed Iroui their cells, Schwab looked
rather feeble. He brought down u stool
and conversed with his wife and her mother
for nearly two hours. They were seper
ated by the partition of iron bars and
wire netting.
Mrs. Schwab waft clad in black, and a
black crepe veil fell in folds from her bon
net, in memory, peril»;»-«, of the previous
day's s«d events. Mr». Sehnanhelt seemed
the more deeply affected, and from time to
time wiped tears from her eyes. The wild
and frantic little girls

in the cage with their gleeful shouts over
the pennies given them by bailiffs, or over
pictures drawn for them by the reporters.
They were happily unable to understand
their father's fate. Before the parting
Schwab fondly ki*«ed the children many
times and bunged them, and retired to his
cell. Mrs. Schwab retired weeping.
Fieiden, until bis wife came, paced the
corridor, with quick and nervous strides.
He would walk halt' way around the cell
house, approach, with down cast eye, the
spot where the gallows had stood and then
tarn abrnptly about and repeat the perfor
mance. Several times he was called to by
newspaper men. He did not respond or
stop in his walk. He was either buried
in gloomy thought, or he would not hear.
Àt 10 o'clock Mrs. Fietden came. She
carried a baby in her arms, and with her
was a neighbor, who led Fielden's little
girl. Mrs. Fieldeu cried a great
deal while talking with her husband.
Abont 11:45 the meu parted with
their wives, 9nd were then brought ont
into the jail office where W. A Foner, one
of their counsel in the trial, talked to them
and bid them good bye.
"Merely a friendly conversation," said
Mr. Fouer. "Schwab told me that he re
gretted the death of Spies very much, and
wished that bis life had been spared ''
A few minutes after 12 o'clock a cab
rolled into the jail court yard and Deputy
Sheriffs Gleason, Spears and Galpen jump
ed out and ran up the steps to the jail of
I«.
Gleason palled a
PAIR OF HANDCUFFS
oat of hi1« pocket and fitted them to the
wrists of Schwab's right hand and Field
en's left. Jailor Folse brought oat of his
private rootp a pair of old roety leg-irons,
weighing 45 pounds, anj lock their legs
together. Gleason searched them. Mr.
Fover sa id : "Yon won't find any bombs
in Fielden's pockets, for he is a man who
never even carried a revolver."
A moment later he remarked: "They
will cat oft' your beards at Joliet, won't
they?"
"I guess so," paid Schwab.
"That is the custom," replied Fielden.
"No exception." put in deputy sheriff
Gleaaon.
Fielden called bailift' Pearce and asked
I him to see that his clothing and papers
were sent to bin wife. He was told that
his wishes would be followed. Schwab
I made the same request. The men made
: their way awkwardly down the steps into
the jail court, their walking being very
much impeded by the leg irons. They
took the hack »eats of the hack and the
deputies clambered in after them and they
were driven to the station.
Schwab and Fielden left Chicago for
Joliet at 1 r02 this afternoon on the Chicago
and Alton railroad train, which pulled out
of the depot two minutes behind schedule
time. A few acquaintances of Fielden
were at the station and a few idlers gath
ered around the car iu which the two con
victs were placed, but that was all.
Out of the windows of the train, which
was tearing Fielden and Schwab to the
penitentiary at Joliet, very lew were seen
at the depot* along the route, and the
deputies who had the prisoners in charge
experienced uo difficulties whatever dur
ing the trip. The train reached the depot
in Joliet^fat o'clock, and the
convicted Anarchists were marched up the
graveled route tv the penitentiary. Upon
arrival at the penitentiary they were es
corted to an inner room ar.d stripped ol
their clothing nud treated to a bath, after
which they were shaved and placed in cells.
No work has as yet been assigned to them,
but owing to their feeble condition it is
said they will be given easy work for a
time

PRKSS COMMENT.
What the Chirac.» rapers Say— \ uarchy
Muat lti« Throttled.
C'HH Aoo, Xovemlier 12.- The AYir* this
morniug savn editorially :
"The one paramount lesson of the events
which culminated on the scaffold in this
city yesterday, is this, of responsibility
for one's utterauces. Frei dorn of epecch
is the inalienable hirthnghtoi ever} Amer
ican citizen, bnt coupled with this right is
also responsility for its abase. If a man
by his speech incites to theft, or arson, or
murder or bomb throwing, he mi'Rt lake
the conseqneuces equally with the actual
thietjineendiary, murderer or dynamiter.
Anarchists need to lay this lesson to heart,
lest the rashness of their months lead them
in the footsteps of Spies and his followers. "
The Time« this morning says: "For so
ciety this effect on the behavior of the liv
ing conferees of the exterminated murder
ers is the supreme consideration. The con
dition of human society is that the wicked
must perish. Either the murderer
MUST BE EXTERMINATE!*
or society must cease to exist. Either the
murderous propaganda called Social An
archism, that has invaded this republic
from the Old World dens of crime to preach
the gospel of assassination, mast be exter
minated or the organization ot society will
disappear. This u the alternative neces
sity that confronts us. There is no middle
term. Either social Anarchism mast die
or this American Republic must die."
The InUr-Octan, editorially speaking
says: "Even upon those alien irreconcil

oi sedition in this country, and ihe slowly
reached climax of yesterday, cannot be
without a good effect. The step of Justice
was not accelerated by fear. There
WAS KO ni BEV
to make an unlawfnl attempt or effort to
suppress the evidence, that might show the
extent of anarchistic conspiracies, or the
nnmber of anarchistic votaries.
The T.ibuhc says: "If there be one mo
tive of this long and shrilling drama more
conspicuous than another, if it conveys a
warning to the comrades ot these mis
guided men more solemn and inevitable than
any other, it is the absolute certainty that
those who seek to overthrow American law
and social order by conspiring force and
violence will only rush headlong to Iheii

be any, can only be nghted at the balloi

AT ENCRL'S HOME.
HU Wife'» Great Sorrow—Preparattona for
the Fanerai.
Chicago, November 12,—At the home
of George Eogel there has been a solemn
throug passing in and ont since morning.
The door of the little cigar store which
Mrs. Engel has managed since the arrest of
her husband, was draped in morning. In
the ltack room lay the bodies of Louis Lingg
and George Engel. They are in their cof
fin*, and no one was permitted to take
more thaa one look as he passed along.
That portion of l.ingg's head which wua
toru by the cartridge, bad been filled
up with chemicals and plaster of
Paris. A bandage hid tho v.ouuds
irom tri« gaze, otherwise the face was well
preserved. In the brow there was a trace
of tbsawful determination which must
bave nerved the bomb-maker to place the
caudle in his month. A dull gleam of
that flaring eye was still perceived l»etween
the half-parted eyelids.
Eugel'e face was as calm aud indifferent
as when he stood ou the scaffold yesterday.
The
HAGGARD FACE OF MRS. KVOKI.,
who frequeutiy passed through the room,
was pitiful. Hardly oue «ut of twenty
who go in to view the remains speak their
minds iu English.
It was definitely decided this afternoou
that the remains ot August Spies should
not be laid in the Aurora Town Hall to
morrow. State Representative Frauk A.
Su»uber, who is at the head of the commit
tee of arrangement«, declare« that the re
fusal to allow the remains in the hall was
dtie to the fear of the owners that the po
lice would revoke their license to sell liq
vors iu it should it be done. This the
owners deny. One cf tjieui declared that
the only reason for refusal was the fact
that the place had already been engaged
by other parties for au entertainment.
Punctually at nc-ou the friends of the
Anarchists will be admitted

shortly after this the cortege will start from

taiumg his cotlic will take ils place in the
procession, and ihe Knights of Labor and
others will fall into line. The coneourrse
following Spies' body will join the proces

lie. Then the procession will he formed
with the committee at the head, followed
by the Aurora Turnverin, the Knights of
Lahor organizitioiH, German Typograph
ical Union No. !», the Carpenters' I'niou,
the Printers' Union, singing societies in
carriages, I lie hearses, and the families,
relatives and friends in carriages.
lîrass hands with mullled drums will
play funeral marche*, while the cortege
moves on to the Wisconsin Central dep:it,
where a s|«titl train will take the tuneral

in Chicago, if the authorities do not pre
vent it Plaster easts have been taken of
the fac?s of the dead Anarchists, except
that of Lingg.
The question of the primary disposal of
the dead Anarchists was settled this alter
uoou. They will he taken to Waldheim
Cemetery aud placed in the vault for the
time being The committee represented to
the directors of the cemetery that the vault
in Waldheim being lately constructed and
on improved principles, was the strongest
of ony cemetery vault near Chicago. Mr.
Stauber declared to the direetois that it
was feared by the friends of the Anarch
ists that a determined etl'ort would be
made by physicians to get possession of the
remains for dissection, and they wanted
them well protected. At last the directors
r.greed to allow Ihe bodies to be placed in
the vault, but reserved their decision as to
whether they would sell to the committee
a plot of ground in which to bury the re
mains.

STROIG POIKTS FOR THE PRISOHER.
Waa Krank P. Spivey Unqualified for a
Juror ?
Nkw Ct'.MUERi.AND, November 1i
Special 7W^Tam to Ote Sumlav Reçutrr.
Hod. John A. Hutchinson this morning
made the closing argument for the prosecu
tion in tho Van Baker cue. He opened,
briefly reviewing the points raised by the
defense upon which was baaed the claim
that injustice was done the prisoner. After
laying down propositions of law, be went
ioto an exhaustive citation of authorities,
the harden of his argument being that tbe
action of Juror Spivey conld not prejudice
the prisoner. That so far as the prisoner
is concerned he should be lianged. This
was the most atrocious murder of the age.
The Anarchists were at least honest in
a belief that they were benefitting
the (H>or as against the rich and did their
deed openly, but here was a man, the lius
baud of one and .son of the other, mur
dered women, who for the sake of filthy
gaiu, struck clown the victims with no eye
but that of (Jod to
■SKK THE Fori. MCKD.
There was no injustice in the couduct ol
the jury. The separations were not proven,
excepting the time when the crowd in the
court house caused a momentary separa
tion.
The drinking ot wbisky and branuv r.y
the jury showed no prejudice to the pris
oner. While there was such drinking it
wa.i only in small quantities, and not
while the jury were deliberating on the
j verdict.
And iu further e\ ideuce of injustice done
the prisoner, they hnug in the affidavit of
Oliver Grimes, as newly discovered evi
dence, but the witness simply .says he
SAW A WOMAN
on the McWha premises after Maker left
the house, that afternoon of the murder,
and does not swear that it is either of the
two women. It amounts to nothing. It
would be aiuiply cumulative, corrobora
tive and collateral evidence: and is there
fore auch as will not constitute grounds
for a new trial.
In concluding, Mr. Hutchinson said
that the evidt-n«« was conclusive of the
prisoner's guilt, and that there was no
error in the case sufficient to set aside the
verdict, and it is the duty of the court to
see that the law should It* executed, how
ever painful it may be to the court to en
torce.
» Ol.. AKNETT's ADDltKHS.
The ait'Tnoon v,a* occupied by Col. Ar
nett, of Wheeling, \V. Va., iutrodnciug the
closing argnment of thu defense bv a re
capitulation of the case. Among the en ors
he assigned none was wore fatal than the
instructions offered by the State and
allowed to no to the jury. That here \\:is
a man who was to l»e hange«! because the
motive would be presumed to be that he
murdered his wife in order to obtain her
separate estate. If such was the law then
every man whose wife had a separat^ es
tate, in event of his wife being murdered,
and circumstantial evidence relied upon to
convict, would be liable to lie hanged for
the deed. The evidence was plainly in
sufficient to warrant the verdict and
KEKDS .VO ABUTMENT,
as it is well known to the Court.
If there is a wpar.it inn proved, and snch
a separation was intentional on the part of
the juror, the law presumes that the pris
oner was prejudiced thereby. If there
was whisky drunk or bought on the
day the verdict was rendered by any
of the jnry, it mnst be equally true
and the evidence of the jury or the bailiff
is not sufficient to rebnt the presumption,
and the verdict should not stand The
evidence of Captain Stewart, that he was
in the court room with part of the jury,
on the evening the jury were sent ont,
was sufficient to set the verdict aside. The
fact of two strangers talking with Spivey
out in front of the court house should do it.
The gas pipe line man who tslked with
Spivey for fifteen or twenty minutes out
ot the presence of the deputy, as prove»!
by two witnesses, would do it. The state
ment of Spivey prenons to going on the
jury, as sworn to by nine witnesses, and
promising the defendant to clear him if
placed on the jury, is conclusive proof
that some, at least, of the jurors bail been
biased, and Spivey in particnlar, by his
solemn pledge deluded and deceived the
prisoner to get a place on the jnry to try
him for bis life.

of the opiuion that the route through
