ASSASSINATED AT HIS RESIDENCE
The Murderer Surrenders Himself and
Is Nov Closely Guarded to Prevent
Chicago, Oct. 28. Another crazy
crank ha done hi deadly work, and
Carter H. Harrison, m five-time mayor
of Chicago and one of the best known
men in the west, lie dead at hi home,
231 South Ashland Boulevard. Three
bullets entered hi body, two making
wound (ufficient to cause death. The
murder was committed by Eugene Pat
rick Prendergast, a
had declared Mayor
Harrison bad prom
ised to make him
vwvSfsL and bad not kept
his word. 1 iite, tie
said, was the only
t ' ' ft reason for commit-
CAsTTlfcH nAKRtSOH. tingthecrime. The
only person in the bonse at the time of
the shooting, besides Mr. Harrison, was
hi son, William Preston Harrison, aged
25, and the servants. A little, before 8
o'clock the door bell rang, and when
Mary Hansen, a domestic, opened the
door, she was confronted by man about
5 feet 5 inches high, smooth shaven and
w ith clean-cut features, lighted up by a
pair of dark eyes.
"I Mr. Harrison in?" asked the man
in a quiet, pleasant voice.
"Yes, ir," responded the girl, as she
threw open the door to admit hi en
trance. "I would like to see him, please," said
the man; as he walked toward the back
end of the hall.
Mayor Harrison was in the dining
room, which opened into the rear of the
ball. Hearing a man ask for him, he
stepped into the hall and walked toward
Without saying a word, Prendergast
drew a revolver and commenced to tire.
He pulled the trigger three times, and
every bullet hit its mark. One bullet
shattered Harrison' left hand ; another
passed into the lower right side of the
abdomen, making a wound that would
have been mortal within a few days,
while the third bullet entered the chest
slightly aliove the heart. This wound
was the immediate cause of death.
AFTER TUX FU1IXO.
So soon as Prendergast began to fire,
Harrison turned and walked rapidly to
ward the dining-room. He passed
through a room into the butler' pantry,
where, weakened by the loa of blood, he
fell to the floor. Prendergast did not
follow up his victim, but replaced his re
volver in his pocket with the same de
liberation that marked all his actions,
and started toward the door. Just as he
was passing out, William Preston Harri
son came tearing dow n the stairs' aud
the coachman ran into the rear end of
the hall. The cries of Mary Hansen
directed the son to where the father lay,
but the coachman wa after other game.
He had a revolver of his own, and as
quickly as he realized what had occurred
he sent a bullet after the retreating form
of the murderer. A second time he fired,
hut both bullets went wild. Running to
the door, the coachman prepared to con
tinue hostilities, but several people en
tered to learn the cause of the shooting,
and by the time the coachman reached
the door the murderer had disappeared.
THK MAYOK's DKATH.
Across Ashland boulevard, directly op
posite the Harrison residence, is the
home of W. J. Chalmers, a wealthy
maker of mining machinery. Chalmers
was standing upon the front steps of his
residence when tiie shot were fired.
He dashed across the street and met
Prendergast at the gate.
"What i it?" said Chalmers. The
man walked rapidly away without reply
ing, and Chalmers hastened into the
house and reached Harrison almost at
the sa ne moment that William Preston
Harrison found where his father lay.
"Are you hurt?" BBked Chalmers, as
he and the son of the dying man strove
to raise him.
"I have got my death, Chalmers," re
sponded the mayor: "I'm shot in the
heart aud a dead man."
A moment later Harrison said with a
voice rapidly losing strength :
"Unbutton my vest; there' where the

rapidly from the wound.
"It'a through the heart," said the
mayor again, hi voice scarcely above
A moment later he sank into uncon
sciousness, and 20 minntes after receiv
ing the wound Mr. Harrison wa dead.
About 23 minute after the shooting,
Sergeant Frank McDonald wa standing
in the office of the Desplainei-etreet
police tation. Every available officer
had already hurried out to work on the
case and McDonald was preparing to
follow. The door was poshed gently
open and in walked a small, smooth
shaven, poorly-dressed man carrying a
revolver in his hand. He shook like a
man with the palsy. Ilia face was
white and drawn. Great drops of per
spiration chased each other down his
face, and hi tottering limbs seemed
scarcely able to hold him op. Looking
McDonald straight in the eyes, he said :
"I did it."
"You did it?" aeked McDonald.
"Yes, I did."
"Did what?" said the officer, as he
laid one hand on the fellow's shoulder,
and witn the other took the revolver.
"I shot Mayor Harrison, and that is
what I shot hi iu with," wa the reply,
"What made you do it?" asked Mc
"He said he would make me corpo
ration counsel, and he did not. That is
what I shot him for."
Prendergast was trembling so- he
could scarcely stand, and the officer led
him to a chair snd asked a few more
questions, to which Prendergast would
only make the reply he had first given
a to the cause of the shooting. He
said that after leaving Harrison's house,
ho had taken a street car and started
toward Desplaines-street station with
the object of giving himBe'f up, adding :
"The car did not go very fast, or I
would have been here sooner."
Til KEATS OF LYNCHING.
The cell door had ecarcely closed be
hind the murderer when an excited
crowd began gathering about the police
station. Patrol wagon rattled up to
the place, cab and carriages came by
the score, and the occupants crowded
and pushed their way into the office.
Personal friends of the dead mayor, city
officials and the curious crowded against
each other in a wilfendeavor to learn
if the story, which spread like wildfire
through the city, was true. An iin-
meuse throng gathered and the laboring
men who had stopped on their way
home added their voice to the subdued
threats of vengeance, for Mr. Harrison
was popular with the masses. The
streets were soon filled for blocks, and
the officer, as they looked out the sta
tion window npon the surging sea of
angry faces, became alarmed for the
safety of their prisoner. A hasty con
ference wab held and it was decided to
remove Prendergast to the central sta
tion in the ciiy hall. The trembling,
pale-faced man was led lietweeu stal
wart officers to the rear door and hurried
away in the darkness.
Mr. Chalmers said late last night re
garding the shooting:
After we had carried Mr. Harrison to
his couch, he said it was useless to do
anything for him, and hi last words, a
nearly a I can remember them, were:
'Give me water send for Annie give
me water.' Young Harrison said to me :
'I told father long ago something like
this would happen. He was too easy in
letting people in to see him, cranks and
Miss Annie Howard, fiancee of Mr.
Harrison, wa in the house at the time
the fatal shot was fired. In accordance
with the wounded man's request, she
was at once nuimoned and was present
when the end came. Miss Howard'
grief wa pitiable. She wa completely
overcome, and was taken to the house
of Carter Harrison, jr., at Jackson Park,
who when the news of his father's
death reached him, hastened home.
Mr. Heaton Owsley, the mayor'
daughter, who reside nearly five mile
from her father' residence, received the
new by telephone and hastened to Ash
land boulevard, but her father was dead
fully 20 minutes before she arrived.

Rocuekteh, X. Y., Oct. 30. An at
tempt was made last night to wreck
No. 6 on the Auburn road, duo here at
9:25 p.m. The train, which is an ex

at the time. Charles Breeze, a o e

The Murderer of HarrUon.
Chicago, Oct. 29. Prendergast, is be
yond doubt a lunatic, pure and simple.
He had studied and read cranky eco
nomic theories until his mind gave way.
He imagined that he was a reformer.
He had schemes for the betterment of
all mankind. He w as especially inter
ested in the welfare of Chicago, and im
agined that he alone could reform the
abuses from which the city is suffering.
He was especially bitter in his denunci
ation of the railroad grade crossings,
w hich are responsible for many deaths
every year; and the idea became lixeu
in his mind that if he were made coro
ration couneel he could solve the prob
lem of elevating all the railroad tracks
within the city limits. Ixmg brooding
over this subject created the delusion
Unit the mayor had promised him the
office. He insisted, uion the fulfillment
of the imaginary promise. Hehaunted
the municipal building and denounced
the city officials. Finally lie determined
that the mayor was acting in bad faith.
This idea grew upon him and he
thought of it day and night. Hi dis
eased brain was, incapable of entertain
ing any other idea, at least so it seemed.
At last he determined to demand from
the mayor himself satisfaction for his
imaginary wrongs. He hud now
reached the homicidal stge. 1 le liought
a cheap second-hand revolver and called
at the mayor's residence. Mr. Harri
son, accustomed to the vagaries of all
sort of cranks, treated his demands
lightly. Prendergast killed him. That
is the stery.

A Danferoue Aclil Put on the Blow
1'lpea of Xou-L'ulon Ulaae-Worker.
Wheeling, W. Va., Oct. 29. There
has long been bad blood between the
nnlon and non-union glass-blowers at
Wellsburv, and when the glass worka
broke away from the union two week
ago this feud was intensified. Among
the non-union men recently employed
there was Hugh Gordon of Philadelphia.
Yesterday morning the mouth-piece of
all the blow-pipe at the Riverside
worka were scoured and washed, for tear
that some of the union men might have
attempted to carry out the threats they
have made about using poison. After
the dinner hour the men did not repeat
the precautionary measure they had
taken in the morning. Hugh Gordon
was the first man to put his blow-pipe
to his mouth. He threw it dow n and
ran to a water tub, his mouth seeming
to be full of liquid fire. The water
i-eouiod to make the burning worse, and
the first swallow carried the burning
fluid into the throat and stomach. Doc
tor after doctor was called. None of
them gave any relief until one resorted
to heroic measures, and by the use oi a
dangerous drug neutralized the action
of the acid, but two ghastly holes had
been eaten through Gordon's lower lip,
and all the exposed membranous sur
face are so inflamed and swollen that
the lower lip is turned inside out over
the chin. The mouth, palate, tonsils
und lining of the throat and passage to
the stomach are nearly eaten away.
Gordon will probably die. The doctors
are unable to determine what acid or
acids were used in the blowpipe, as the
effect are so much more severe than
anything they have ever known and the
usual antidotes are of no use. Two
other -non-union workmen were also
badly burned, but neither of theui are in -a
dangerous condition. Charles Iirady,
an ex-union employo at Riverside, was
arrested last night, but there was no
evidence on which to hold him.
