The United States Supreme Court
Declines to Grant a Writ of Error
for the Chicago Felons,
Counsel for the Anarchists Think
That the Sentence of Several -k
Will Be Commuted.,
The Doomed Men Naturally De
pressed, Though Endeavoring
to Appear in Good Spirits.^
**& iri
t. tec-*
The decision of the United States su
preme court upon the petition for a writ
of error in the case of the Chicago anar
chists was announced last Wednesday aft
ernoon by Chief Justice Waite in a long
and carefully prepared opinion, which oc
cupied thirty-five minutes in the reading.
The court holds in brief:
FirstThat the first ten amendments
to the constitution are limitations upon
federal and not upon state action.
SecondThat the jury law of Illinois* is
upon its face valid and coi stitutional, and
that it is similar in its provisions to the
statute of Utah, which was sustained in
this court in the case of Hopt vs. the terri
tory of Utah.
ThirdThat it does not appear in the
record that upon the evidence the trial
court should have declared the juror San
ford incompetent.
FourthThat the object to the admis
sion of the Johann Most letter and the
cross examination of Spies, which counsel
for the prisoners maintained, virtually
compelled them to testify against them
selves were not objected tointhetiial
court, and that, therefore no foundation
was laid for the exercise of this court's
And fifthThat the question raised by
General Butler in the cases of Spies and
Fielden upon the bases of their foreign na
tionality were neither raised nor decided
in the state courts and therefore cannot be
considered here. The writ of error prayed
for must consequently be denied.
There was no dissenting opinion.
When the announcement of the result at
Washington was received,a note was sent up
to Spies, telling him that the writ had been
denied, and asKing if he had any statement
to make in regard to the matter. Spies
was sitting- in his cell, busily en
gaged with some manuscripta. 'He
read the note and then returned it
with a short "I have nothing bo say." None
of the other men would 6ay anything, either.
Within fifteen minutes after the verdict was
known eight or ten officers in citizen's clothes
appeared. Two of them stepped quietly into
the jail and the others disposed of themselves
in the criminal court building and about) the
premises. The bailiff at the outer door lead
ing into the jail court says he is instructed
to admit no one, but whether this applies to
the near relatives of the death-sentenced
men is not known. The streets about the
jail are perfectly quiet. No crowds have
gathered and no incidents of any sort have
as yet occurred. The police are prepared
for any emergency though they say they
have no fear of an uprising or open vio
lence. Without any previous intimation a
a rule risridly debarring visitors from the
jaii was quickly pur in force, and no one was
allowed to enter the building daring the
except officers, reporters
and relatives of the anarchists. As
y". oon as the news from Washington had gen
erally circulated through the city there was
a rush of miscellaneous people to see the
condemned men before it was too late. They
entered the sheriff's office in droves, but the
latch string had been withdrawn, Loud and
long were the expostulations but the deputy
who guarded the way to the jail yard was
obdurate. Friends of the doomed men bear

to cheat the gallows by killing themselves.

to prevent it, still I should not like to have it
said that if I bad attended to my duty the sui

the Arbeitex Zeitung, accompanied by a re
porter for the same paper, came next.
Shortly afterward, Spies' two brothers,
Chris and Ferdinand, were admitted, and
they were followed by their mother, who
seemed to feel her sorrow deeply. Mrs. Par
sons and her two little children came, and
with them a hvly who is interested in the
work of the Amnesty association. Every
one of the prisoners had the semblance, at
least, of cheerful spirits. Mr. Bielfeldt, after
leaving the jail, said:
It is useless to ask these men to sign the peti
tion to the povernor for then: lives. I have just
been talkine to them and they laugh at the idea.
A significant incident of die day had its
scene at police headquarters. The moment

surprising suddenness. As to what districts

were non-committal when uRked. It is
known, however, that for some days the

soon as the decision was received. '"We will

the result of his efforts at the capital when
Miss Nina Van Zandt hurriedly entered his
office, and was immediately admitted to the
presence of her legal advisor. Her bearing,
as she srlided through the outer office, was
not that of a woman bowed in grief or
crushed with awe. Her figure was erect and
her face slightly flushed, and though the
least trace of anxiety might have
lurked her calm, bright eye, was im
possible not to observe that her whole mind
was bent upon a practical object Her de

"I do not know jus& now -what action the Am

and a committee appointed to take charge of the

work of the Defense Fund association but now

History of the Crime and Trial of the An

The night of May 4,1886. in obedience to
the order of Chief of Police Ebersold, six
companies of police, numbering 174 men,
under command of inspector Bonfield and
Capt Ward, assembled' at the Desplaines
street police station in anticipation of
trouble at the Haymarket square meeting.
About 10 o'clock it waR decided to? disperse
the gathering The six companies moved
toward the the crowd. Reaching the wagon
on which the speakers stood, Capt
Ward ordered the assemblage to
disperse. A few seconds after he
spoke a bomb was thrown, followed
by a tremendous explosion. A fusilade of
pistol shoes from the sidewalk on Desplaines
street, near Bandolph, followed. The shots
were returned by the police, ani after the
firing was over it was
found that Officer De

Mayor Harrison also issued a proclamation
prohibiting the gathering of people in

June 14 O^oar Neebe, whose share in the
conspiracy and its results was not considered
to be so well established as that of the other
prisoners, was admitted to bail in the sum of
$17,000. The same day Balthazar Rau, the
advertizing agent of tne Arbeiter Zeitunsr.
who was alleged to be one of the movers in
the bomb-throwing conspiracy, was arrested
at Omaha through the efforts of Assistant
States Attorney Furthmann. June 6 seven
of the indicted anarchists were arraigned
and pleaded not guilty. William Seliger, tho
anarchist informer, at whose house Lingg
ran his bomb faotory, through fear of an
archist vengeance, disappeared but after a
vigorous search by the police he and his wife
voluntarily turned up at the East Chicago
avenue station next day. June 15 Officer
Nels Hanson, the seventh victim of the hay
market riot, succumbed to his injuries. June
18 only eighteen of the sixty-seven officers
wounded at the haymarket had reported for
duty, many of the wounds having proved
very difficult of cure. Spies, Schwab, Neebe
and Fielden made applications June 2 0 for
separate trials, but their motion was over
The trial was commenced before Jndsre
Gary in the criminal court Judge 21, and the
sensation of the day was the voluntary sur
render of the miss-
ing anarchist, A R.
Parsons,who walk-
ed quietly into
court with his
counsel, Capt.
Black, and took his
seat beside bis in
dicted fellow an
archists. Amotion
by Capt Black for
leave to withdraw
the plea of not
guilty and enter a

promptly over-
ruled by Judge
Gary, and the tedi
ous work of secur-
ing a jury commenced. Twenty-one days
were consumed in the effort to secure twelve
men who were willing to give the defend
ants an unbiased trial on the evidence.
When the twelve men were sworn Mr. Giin
nell began the opening sneech for the
t"j) PfiHSOHS
which took less than two
ours and a half in delivery. He said
he would prove that the anarchists
were armed in the city for the pur
pose of murder, and that the throwing of
the bomb at the Haymarket meeting was
only part of a deep-rooted conspiracy which
had lor its object the destruction by bomb
and fare of the police stations and other pub
lic buildings, as well as general murder of
the police and capitalists He charged that

that he would try to prove who threw it
Early next day Judge Gary ruled that the
existence of a general conepiracy to annihi
late the police force and dertroy property
rendered the defendants, who weie'instaga"
tors in it, liable foi an act looking to suoh
annihilation and destruction, even if com
mitted without their bpecific sanction at
that particular time and place. This ruling
was a surprise to the defense, and drew

Inspeotor John Bonfield was then placed
on the stand, and testified as to the facts of
the bomb-throwing. Gotttried Waller, a
member of the Lehr und Wehr Verem, who
presided at the meeting May 3, when it is
claimed the Haymaiket meeting was
planned, testified, through an interpreter, to
having heard Engel say that the Northwest
side group of anarchists had reeolved to
come to the aid of the workingmen in any
conflict they might have with the police over
the eight-hour difficulty. The word "Itube"
was to be published in the Arbeiter Zeitung

William Seliger, at whose house Lineg
lodged and manufactured his dynamite
bombs, testified that the afternoon of May 4
some forty or fifty bombs were made by
Lingg, himself and five or six others. The
witness explained that for tubular bombs
Llngg used sections of metal pipe, and for
spherical bombs he cant leaden shells in a
enn-ehaped mould, melting the lead on the
kitchen stove. Small iron bolts and nnts
were imbedded in the dynamite with which
the shells were stuffed, and each shell was
sealed with a lulminating cap and fuse at
tachment. Each bomb was powerful enough
to destroy about 100 men if thrown into a
crowd. Seiiger also testified to the distribu
tion of the bombs, and bow Iiingg was eager
to throw a bomb at the Larrabee street
patrol wagon as It was starting off to
the scene of the explosion. Lmsrg
and Engel continually urged their fel
low anarchists to arm
therasei ves with bombs
Seliger's testimony was
corroborated by bis
wife, who also stated
that Lmgg tried to
make a hiding place
for the bombs within
the wall of his room,
but was prevented by
her. The prosecution
showed by M. H. Will
iamson, a newspaper
reporter, that Pardons
and Spies had shown
him bombs and dyna
mite in the Arbeiter
Zeitung offioe.and that
Parsons had explained
the methods of street warfare with bonJbs,
and boasted of the strength and perfect or
ganization of the anarchists in the city.
Lieut Shea produoed the galley of type from
which tne "Revenge" circular was" printed
and related conversations he had had with

The testimony of H. H. Gilmer was the
sensation of the trial. He swore that be en

that a man came from the wagon to the

Gen. Grant, then nearly forty-three
years of age, was live feet eight inches
in height, with shoulders slightly
stooped. His hair and full beard were
a nutbrown, without a trace of gray
in them. He had on a single-breasted
blouse made of dark blue flannel, un
buttoned in front, and showing a
waistcoat underneath. He wore an
ordinary pair of top boots, with his
trousers inside, and was without
spurs. The boots and portions of
his clothes were spattered with mud.
He had on a pairoi thread gloves ot a
dark yellow color, which he had taken
off on entering the room. His felt
"&ugar loaf" stiff-brimmed hat was
thrown on the table beside him. He
had no sword, and a pair of shoulder
straps were all there was about him
to designate his rank. In fact, aside
from these, his uniform was that oi a
private soldier.
Lee, on the other hand, was fully
six feet height, and quite erect for
one of his age, for he was Grant's sen
ior by sixteen years. His hair and
full beard were a silvery gray, and
quite thick except that the hair had
become a little thin in front. He wore
a uniform of Confederate gray, but
toned up to the throat, and at his
side he carried a longs word of exceed
ingly fine workmanship, the hilt stud
ded with jewels, ft was said to be
the 8 word which had been presented to
him by the State of Virginia. His top
boots were comparatively new, mid
seemed to have on themsome ornamen
tal stitching of red talk. Like his uni
form, tney were sinmilarly clean and
but little travel-stained. On the
boots were handsome spurs, with
largo rowels. A felt hat, which in
color, matched pretty crosely that of
his uniform, and a pair of long buck
skin gauntlets lay beside him on the
table. We asked Col. Marshall after

Imagined He "Had Swallowed
Mis Teeth.
From the Buffalo Express.
A short time since a man was taken
to one of the hospitals suffering in
tense pain. He informed the doctors
that bis home was down in the coun
try, and that if he should die he
wished to be sent there. The physi
cians asked him what he supposed
caused the pain. "Why, I swallowed
my plate and four false teeth while
asleep the other night," was the an
swer. The patient was put upon
liquid food, and all the examinations
made by the medicos failed to locate
tne swallowedarticle. The man's suf
ferings were lesseued consid'-rably,
and as a test it was decided to give
him a little piece of beafsteak. Thi
was done, and the poor patient wa?
writhing in agony as soon as he had
swallowed a mouthful. "Oh, my
God!" he exclaimed, ''this is killinu

he broke forth in exclamations. This
time he said: "Ob, how I suffer! I can
feel the teeth tearing my stomach
apart! Ob," he did not finish until
the nurse opened a telegram from his
wife. It read: "Found teeth under

swallowed those teeth, got up and

Discovery of Six Bombs Charged
With Dynamite in the Colls of thQ
Condemned Anarchists. SKfjt' t^'
On Sunday, the 6th, a great sensation
was created in Chicago, by the finding of
six bombs in the cell of one of the anarch
ists. The bombs were meant for the de
struction of everything with which thtir^A^
fragments might come in contar-b, the shells
beinc nuvJe of lead, zinc and antimony, or
of some similar composition, pieces
of which would fly in every direction when
they exploded, so that blood poisoning
was certain to set in whorever a wound
was made. The four bombs were made of
ordinary 5-8 inch gas pipe, which, instead
of exploding, would j-oive the purpose
of gun barrels. On one of each
were fixed a cap and fuse, while
the other end contained small bolts
that would fly out like bullets from a gun,
from the force created by the explosion of
the cap. It was j^o^sibly the intention of
Lingg, as well as the other three, to put
one end ot the bomb in his mouth and
light the fuse, just as he would a cigar.
The resultant explosion would, it was be
lieved, prove fatal.
The bombs wers found in Line's cell.
When State's Attorney Grinnell heard of
tho discovery of bombs in Lingo's cell he
was inclined to censure the jail authorities
for lack of vigilance, and bc^an to conjec
ture how the bombs could have been smug
gled in. He was inclined to concur the
theory or the jail deputies that the woman
wno has been \isiting Lingg found means
to convey tho bombs to him.
Gov. Ojjlebby was thunderstruck when he
received the news of the finding of the
bombs in Lingg's cell. Ho read and re
read the dispatch and a cloud of gloom,
\exntion and anxiety swept over his lace
as the full mipoit of the information,
dawned upon him.

The Indians in tfce meantime had formed

Lieut. Edwards, Serond Lieut. Byram.
A running fight ensued, the Indian retreat
ing, some to the peaceful gathering, near
the agency, and others crossing the river
and taking to the hills. Sword Bearer
made a tinal stand at the crossing of the
Little Horn, about one mile below the
agency, in which ho and probably three of
his followers were killed. This was the re

Chicago Dispatch: Edgar A. Hall, broth
er of the second engineer of the Vernon,
stateB that the Inst time his brothei was
in Chicago he told him that Capt. Thorp,
master of the Vernon, had an attack of
delirium tremens while on the top of the
pilot house. He alao said tha it ought
to have been well known to.
the other officers of the line that Capt.
Thorp was a hard drinker, an I that be*
had often left port while drunk. Mr. Hall
gave the name of a prominent wholesale,
merchant who recently made a trip on the,
Vernon, who had told him that Capt.*
Thorp was drunk du 'ing the entire time
he remained on the boat. Axle Stone, the'
only survivor of the waster, when asked
if he ever saw Capt. Thorp drunk, replied:
The captain was drunk most of the time,
and he was very drunk when we left She
boygan. The night that the steamer warn
lost the captain was ns drunk as I ever
saw him. I guess that is wny the firnt
mate stayed on deck all of the time. He
knew that the captain was so drunk that
he didn't hardly know what ho was about,
and was probably afraid that the captain/
would do something foolish. If the cap
tain had been sober I don't believe the
vessel wouid have been lost.
