Xew York. Oct. 28. A crazy man, em
ulating ta tka eaampU of the man who
Saturday night shot down and Ulled
Mayor Harrison, of Chieaco, fired two
ahots from a revolver into tba stomach of
a man whom bo imagiosd bad done htm a
wrong. The man who was shot was
Frederick Sfatthies. The man who did
the shoo ting ta said to be named Thomas
Bradley, afattaiee ia soptriatendent of
construction of the new Postal Telegraph
building on Broadway. But for the fact
that ten policemen of the Broadway squad
with their billies and batons defended the
prostrate, bleeding and mangled and
ehrieaiag form of the would-be murderer
an infuriated mob of over I, WO men would
have lynched the fellow.
Tfc Merterrr Been a Hialmg Place.
The assassin ran' into the basement of
the building after the shooting and hid
behind a pile of cornice. He was crouch
ing very low down and iu one band he held
his pistol already cocked. To scare the
man out the police opened fire and about
twenty shots were fired. The man did not
come out at the first volley, but then a
policeman got Upon the top of the pile
while the others were attracting the man's
airention and pointed a pistol at him al
ready cocked aud told him that unless lie
csaie out in three minutes he would be a
dead man. The policemaa took out his
watch and culled oat at the end of one
miante, then at the end of the second min
ute. There was beard an omiuous click
ing as every police unau in the crowd cocked
his revolvsr. The man started out with
all haste, and tried to getaway.
Policeman lMn liiiieapib made a rush at
the man abon ten feet before be got to the
exit on Broadway and hit him on the
head with his stick. The n.an shrieking
and crying, striking out right and left
with hia flats, was felled to the ground and
half a dozen policemen fell on top of him.
It required three minutes steady dubbing
tj subdue the man, who struggled like a
wildcat. Then ensued another wild rush
and the crowd tried to get at the man to
lynch him. The policemen had tbe Kieat
est difficulty in get tins the man through
the crowd to tbe station bouse. From
witnesses of tbe shooting it was learned
that the man had been loafing around tbe
building all day. lie bad been biding be
hind piles of brick and Baying ,bat tbe
p iliceoien and the Superintended were
after him trying to murder him forVstcal
Tbe Victim Wilt rrobablf Die.
Tbe men paid no attention to htm.-
3:50 o clock the man came Irotii behind a
pile and itlepiiiug uptothesuperintendent
deliberately tired two bUois into his stom
ach. Then, navicg bis umbrella and yell
ing for the men to keep back, he took
refuge behind a pile of bricks. Tbe man
was locked up in the City Hall police sta
tion the night before as a suspicious char
acter. He told a story about the police

men is on guaid at the catafalque.
Cvowee View eke Dead Maya.
As aoon as the doors of the city hall
were opened a stream of men and women
began pouring through the building, en
tering from the Clark street entrance and
passing oat at La Salle street. Up to the
present there has been a steady stream,
and before 10 o'clock tomorrow the people
who have looked the last on the face of tbe
dead will number tens of thousands. Tbe
grief of the city ia universal. All the pa
pers speak in loving terms of the late
mayor, even those who fought him the
fiercest daring his political career, and
the general public is no less kind tn its
feeling for the victim of the assassin.

FACTS ABOUT THE ASSASSIN.
Be Oecaplee the nasae Cell la Jail That
IKi. Llagf Did.
Prendergast, the assassin is now brood
ing over his "wrongs' in tbe cell, in the
county jail where Louis Lingg. the
anarchist, cheated the gallows by blowing
his bead off with a high explosive cart
ridge. He scowls on reporters and has
nothing to say but that he was justified.
Tbe grand jury has promptly indicted bim
and the sent intent is that bis alleged in
sanity shou Id not save bim from stretch
ing hemp. He is held as a crank of the
Guiteau fctape and not as a lunatic.
It turns out that be has been writing
letters to senators about the Sherman law
repeal bill urging tbe silve rites to stand
out against cloture, which he said would
result in bloodshed. His principal victim
in tbe letter writing matter was Senator
Dubois, who got numerous letters, all
urging the silver men to stand to. their
suns, and declaring that President Cleve
land was only bluffing. He was only on
of many, however, of the came kind, for
the silver senators have been deluged with
such egions from similar cranks.
Prendergast was born ia County Gal
way, Ireland, April , 1868. but was
brought to Chicago while yet a babe. He
was educated at a Roman Catholic school
here and was always careful about bis de
votions. According to his mother's state
ment some of his father's relatives were
insane enough to be confined in asylums
in Ireland, but he never showed signs of
insanity here. He was morose, however,
and did not get along with his compan
ion?. He was at one time a newsboy at
Omaha, and had the same reputation
there, buAae one thought him insane. His
hobby for th& last two years has been the
single tax theory.

strife between the city of Quincy aad the
