wound iufllcient to cauw) death. The
murder wa couuuitted by Eugene
1'atrick Prendertat, a patier carrier,
who had declared that Mayor Harrmon
bad promiwd to make him corporation

Shortly before 8 o'clock the door beil

In a Quiet pleasant voice.
"Yes. sir." replied the iti", a abe

said the man, a be walked toward the
back end of the ball.
Mayor Harrison waa in the dining
room, which opened Into the rear of the
ball, and hearing the man ask lor him
stepped Into the hall and walked toward
Prendeiyast. Without saying a word
the murderer drew a revolver and com
menced to Bre. He pulled the trigger
but three times, and every bullet bit
ita mark. One bullet shattered Harri
son' left hand, another passed into the
lower right side of the abdomen, making
wound that would bave been mortal
within a few daya. The third bullet
entered hi chest slightly above tbe
leart, and this wound was the immedi
ate cause of death .
Aa soon as Prenderuast beiian to fire

even before he reached his father's side
a patrol wagon filled with officers from

the Mavor'B house. By the time the of

Every possible effort was made to se
cure medical attendance for Mr. Harri'
son, but when Dr. Lyman, the first
physician to arrive, reached the Mayor's
side he was a dead man.
About twentv-five minutes after tbe
shooting Sergeant Frank McDonald was
Htamlimr in the office of the Dcsplaines
street Police station. Every available
officer had already hurried out to work
on the case and McDonald waa prepar
ing to follow. The door was pushed gen
tlv mien and in walked a small, smooth
shaven, poorly dressed man, carrying a
revolver In his hand. He shook like a
mn with Dalsev : bis face was white and
drawn ; great drops of perspiration chaaed
.-h other down his face, and nis louer-
tr., liir.ha aenmed scarcely able to hold
him up. Looking at McDonald straight
in the eve, he said :
"I did it." . , ,
"You did it?" asked McDonald.
"Yes, I did."
"Did what?" said tbe officers, aa he
laid on the man's shouldor and with the
other took the reyolver.
"I shot Mayor Harrison, and that la
what I shot him with," wa the reply.
What made you do H7" asked
"Ha said be would made me Corpora
tion Counael, and be did not; that is
what I shot him for."
Prenderifast wa trembling so that he
could scarcely stand, and the officer led
him to a chair and asked him a few
more question, to which Prendergast
would only make trie reply he ha! first
given as to the cause of the shooting.
He said that after leaving Harrison's
house be had taken a streetcar and
started toward the Desplaines-street sta
tion with the object of giving himself up.
"Prendergast is crazy," said Corra
tion Counsel Kraus, who wa perhaps
the closest friend Mayor Harrison bad.
"I know hitn well, and he called at my
office and told me he was going to be
aooointed mv successor. Tne man was
so oaloablv out of his mind that I did
not consider it worth while to talk seri
ously w ith him. I spoke to the Mayor
about it and he said he bad received
threatening letters from the fellow, bnt
he paid do attention to them, aa tbe
man was insane."
The Bill Passed the Senate on
Monday Now In the House.

Tbi World'! Fair Cloud
Chicago, Oct. 30. The official life of
the world' fair is ended. This evening
waa to have been one of dazzling bril
liancy but the awful and untimely death
of Mayor Harrison changed all that.
Appropriate action wa taken at the
memorial meeting in festival hall in
memory of Chicago's beloved chief mag-
Rtraie and all other ceremonies were
abandoned. The great ciowd in attend
ance, sorre of whom had come from far-
distant states to assist at rejoicing over
the successful ending of the great exposi
tion, fillinir every seat and occupying
everv foot of standing room, was hushed.
- . . i
President Palmer, of the national com-,
mission, presided. Rev. Dr. Barrows
delivered a prayer and read an address
prepared by President Higinbotham,
of the fair directory, previous to the
mayor's taking off. This wa thought
best, because it was so consonant with
the spirit of the meeting. After the
speech, appropriate resolutions concern
ing the death of Mayor Harrison and
paying to his memory a tnouie oi re
stiect and admiration, were adopted.
Engrossed copies will be Bent to the
familv of Mr. Harnaon. Then President
Thomas W. Palmer, of the national com
mission, announced that, in yiew of the
sad circumstances which brought the
assemblage together, the closing of the
fair would be marked only by a salute
of cannon aud the hauling down ol
flairs. When that bad taken place, be
declared, in obedience to the act of con
gress, that the exposition waa officially
tHB TOTAL ATTENDANCE.
The total paid attendance at the fair
from the opening to the close has been
21,458,910. Tbe total free admissions,
which ini lude employee of all kinds, ex
hibitors, concessionaires, etc., have been
5,953,818. Today's admissions were
242,575 of which 208,173 paid.
Th. OnUide Attendance.
Chicago, Oct 30. The Chicago roads
were busy today in figuring up the
world's fair traffic since tbe opening ol
the fair. With most of them the con
clusions arrived at were but estimates,
based on the most reliable data at hand.
It will be a month or so before strictly
accurate figures can be had. So far as
the figures at hand go, they show that
the number of people brought into
Chicago by the twenty-one passenger
lines ending here during the fair period
were, in round numbers, 3,336,000. This
allows 350,000 each for the five leading
passenirer lines; 300.000 each for the
next five ; 150,000 each for the next
group of five, and 50,000 each for the
six weak lines. Allowieg that eacn
nf thesn Dassenuers visited the fair five
limes would account for an attendance
of 15.755,000 which would be a good pro
portion of the outside visitors. It would
leave but a little over 5,000,000 visit
Silver in the Treasury, '
Washington, Oct. 30. Senator Sher
man has received from Secretary Carlisle
reply to his letter concerning the
seiirniorage now in the treasury. The
secretary says that, of the treasury
notes issued under the Sherman act,
$52,305,840 have, upon demand of the
holders, been redeemed in gold and
JG.224,192 in silver dollars. The secre
tary's letters shows the seigniorage in
the treasury, carried under the bherman
Aft. amounts to $6,976,098. The silver
bullion on hand October 1 amounted to
137.606.257 fine ounces costing $124,
501,428. With the probable purchases
of October. Carlisle thinks there will be
139,666,257 ounces of silver bullion in
the treasury November l.the cost of

coinage value $180,320,008, giving

Wasiiihctos. Nov. 1. Silver pur
chased by the government ceased today.
The purpose for which Cleveland called
congress in extraordinary session was ac
complished at 4 :25 this afternoon, when
he affixed his signature to the bill to re
peal unconstitutionally the purchasing
clause of the Sherman law. When the
bill reached the house from the senate
there was an attempt to filibuster bnt
the silver men failed to keep the floor
hot with notions and Speaker Crisp over
whelmed them by putting the pending
motion to order the previous question.
It carried with a roar. The filibusters
had been caught napping and nothing
remained for them except to submit.
For thirty minutes, under the rules, fol
lowed a rattle of oratory amid the
confusion Jand excitement. At it
conclusion a vote was taken on
Bland's free coinage substitute. The
majority against it waa 73. Then came
the onal vote on concurring in the sen
ate amendments. The vote stood 193
for concurrence and 94 against. When
the original bill passed the bouse,
August 28, the vote stood 201 to 100, so
that, although the total vote today is
smaller, the proportion is practically the
Washington, Oct. 30. The long con
flict in the senate over the bill to repeal
the purchasing clause of the Sherman
act came to an end today with a victory
on the side for repeal. The vote on the
passage of the bill as amended (that is,
of the Yoorhies substitute) waa ayes 43,
noes 32. There was no exultation nor
excitement of any kind oyer the result,
but there was probably a feeling of
relief on all sides that the end of tbe
struggle had been reached. Tomorrow
the secretary of the senate will appear
at the bar of the house with message
informing that body that the bill has
been passed with an amendment, and
requesting the conenrrence of the house
in that amendment. Tbe message and
bill may remain on the speaker's desk
until it is convenient to have it laid
before the body, or it may be referred to
a committee, or tbe senate amendment
may be concurred in without reference
to any committee, and by a direct vote
of tbe house. Not only was the repeal
fight brought to a termination today,
but so also was the abnormally long
legislative day of Tuesday, the 17th of
October. Tbe debate on repeal was
continued for sixty-one days, during
which five volumes of the Congressional
Record have been filled with speeches,
amounting in tbe aggregate to about
