leaders eagerly discussed as their long

How thegig.mtic, peaceful strikes were
turned into riots, how the entire world
was startled by the blood-chilling Lomb
massacre in thehaymarket, then the ma
jestic trial, the amazing bravado of the
one American defendant, the horribly
grotesque marriage of another one of the
prisoners every detail of these strange
occurrences and the extraordinary train
succeeding, now presents itself again as
if the whole had passed but yesterday.
The key-note of it all is found in the
platform of the I. A. A., International
Arbsiter (Workingmen's) Association
of which organization August Spies and
his 6e.en co-defendants were leading
members and upholders. In tho interna
tional platform it is urged that "the pres
ent system under which property is own
ed by individuals should be destroyed,
and that all capital which has been pro
duced by labor should be transformed in
to common property "by force." Eighty
"irroups" of this dangerous association
existed in the United. States, chiefly at
the great indjjstrKl centers, Chicago
alone being the ill-starred possessor of
seen. Only a portion of the members
were armed, yet the number of this class
in Chicago exceeded G000, eery man of
whom attended regular military drills,
had his on n rifle and revolver, and could
obtain dynamite and bombs for tho ask
ing. Tho unarmed members of the
groups were constantly in contact with
their armed brethren and in hearty sym
pathy with their purposes and their prin
ciples. It was this compact, well-disciplined
I. A. A, that had for its organs
three now noted newspapers the Abett
er Zeitun, the Alarm and the Anarchist.
Excepting handsome, 3'outhful Louis
Lingg, w ho, though taking a conspicuous
part, was a mere acting agent, each of
the eight Haymarket defendants was di
rectly connected with one of these papers.
August Spies, a keen, cynical Hessian,
witii the subtle intellectual vigor of an
Iago, was editor-in-chief of the Arbeiter.
The jaunty, dare-devil little Texan, Al
bert R. Prsons, brother of a confederate
general, presided over the Alarm. At
the head of the Anarchist, George Engel,
iinother Hessian, nut of a coarse brutal
type, out-Heroded the most blood-thirsty
utterances of his compeers. AVhile Sam
Fielden, the Englishman, sullen-looking,
shaggy and forbidding, but as an agitator
simply volcanic, and Oscar Ncebe, the
polished, attractive German-American
organizer, were more especially concern
ed in other than journalistic branches of
the propaganda, they were, nevertheless,
among the directors respectively of tho
Alarm and Arbctier Zeitung. The gaunt
Bavarian Michael Schwab was Spies' as
sistant editor, and his fellow-countryman,
Adolph Fischer, he of the poisoned dag
ger, was the Arbeiter's head foreman.
Not one of these men however they
might split hairs, could candidly deny
that he was instrumental to a greater or
less degree in helping on the catastrophe
at the Haymarket. Of the legal guilt of
each nothing need be said further than
that its certainty was put to tests seldom
if ever paralleled.
During the long months preceding the
bomb-throwing tho defendants one and
all were incessantly active in
derided as their special champions. The
period of confusion developing from the
mammoth strikes of the first of May,
18S6, was definitely announced months
before as the time when the fearful bolt
should fall. Pitiless as was this pro
gramme and dificult as a belief is that it
was ever contemplated by men, tho facts
as stated were abundantly proven in
The diabolism was fully shared in by
women. Especially so was this tho case
in the fantastic public demonstrations
like the red-flag processions of ragamuf
fins with torches that attempted at night
to enter the magnificent new board of
trade when tho dedication festivi
ties of the institution had for the time be
ing transformed the huge building into a
scene of social brilliance without local
precedence. The repulsive, blaspheming
intruders wero forced back at tho muz
zles of three dozen police revolvers. In
affairs like this the dusky wife of Parsons,
and other no less desperate women,
seemed in their proper element. Of the
many other queer outbreaks preceding
the Haymarket tragedy, the mot start
ling at this time, perhaps, was the parade
Thanksgiving day, when in ridicule of
President Cleveland's proclamation near
ly a thousand uncouth men and women
of the slums, headed by banners of black
and red, traversed the choice residenco
avenues wildly yelling and scoffing at the
well-dressed people who crowded to the
windows, anxious to learn the cause of
Tho city.authorities affected for some
reason to ignore all ebulitionsof tho mob.
As a result of this official indifference,
when the time came at last for the eight
hour labor disturbances and the simulta
neous inauguration of the secretly cherish
ed "revolution," the anarchists were a
power indeed, and the police were igno
rant of danger. It is true that the Chica
go papers contained timely intimations ot
the plots, but owing to tho peculiar alti
tude of the high municipal authorities,
tho articles were treated as rank sensa
Just one day before the time set for the
strikes Louis Lingg, the bomb-maker,
slipped into his lodgings a heavy, suspic
ious looking box, three feet in length.
The box contained a largeohvoice of dy
namite. Its delivery at Lingg's lodgings
was tho first immediate preparation for
THE BLOODY RESULT
Of five days later. Tormany weeks pre
vious Lingg had been purchasing and ex
perimenting witli dynamite as the paid
agent of one of the seven international
"groups," but subsequent events showed
beyond anv reasonable doubt that this

shivered in countless fragments. Then it
was that patrol wagons, loaded with po
lice, the hoies covered with foam,
dashed through the crowd from behind.
It is admitted by Spie3 tint he ordered
tho mob, many of whom wero flourish
ing rovolvers, to resist the attempt of tha
police to quell the riot. Of courso tho
victors wore the police, but that to Spies,
according to bis own accounts, was not
of main concern. The blood of work
ingmen had been drawn, and when ho
satisfied himself that such a result was;
produced , tho anarchist leader coollyjwith
drew, though the battlo was at itsheight.
Taking a street car direct to the Arbei
ter Zeitung office, Spies, after a hurried
consulation with Schwab, Neobe and
others, decided to call the Haymarket
mass meeting, and then wrote.
THE" IMFAMOUS "REVEJQE CIRCULAR."
Twenty-five hundred copies wero issued
as quickly as printers could work, and
everything was now ripo for tho murder
compact meeting that night in Griefs
basement, tho same that had been called
by the Aebeiter Zeitung that day and tho
day before. In this connection the exact
wording of the circular, especially tho
latter portion, foreshadowing the slaughter
of tho morrow, the fatal 4th of May, poss
esses peculiar interest. Spies wruto :
"REVENGE! REVENGE 1
WORKMEN, TO ARMS 1"
"Men of labor, this afternoon tho blood

did they murder them? Because the

your oppressors- have assigned to them.

yu approach them and implore them to

in "demonstrations" and "experiments.'
Their speeches and articles fairly bristled
with impassioned appeals for the loboring
people to provide themselves with fire
arms and dynamite. Specific instruc
tions were given how to handle and use
the explosive, and how to make bombs
and how topiocure weapons. All this was
stated by the conspirators to be making
ready for the coming "social revolution."
What was meant by "social revolution"
was not left to lx vaguely inferred, nor
wa3 the time when it was to be inaugu
rated a dim uncertainty of the future.
The "revolution" was frequently define
ed in s'peech and writing as a sudden
bloody, forcible upheaval of the right of
private ownership of property, then the
bringing about of a state of society in
which all property should be held in
Incredible as it may seem, tho avowed
purpose was to deluge the city in blood
was heard round the world the bomb,
with fifty others manufactured by Lingg
uiidcr the auspices of the International
association, which furnished the money,
and of which the celebrated defendants
were not members simply, but leaders.
Next diy, May 1, the eight-hour strikes
began in earnest, and by nightfall, when
the first intelligent estimates wcreobtain-
able, 30,000 men walked the streets idle.
Promptly in tho morning, Sunday, when
the churches were resounding with swell
ing hosannas, the stuffy little Bohemian
hall on Emma street was crowded with
members of the Lehr and Wehr Verein,
an inner circle of the omnipresent Inter
national. Detailed plans for the cear-at-hand
conflict with the police wero sub
mitted by Editor Englo and listened to
by Spies' Lieutenant, Fischer. These
plans were the ones follow ed almost to
the letter at tho Haymarket, but the de
cision to do so was not reached at this
meeting. Instead it was determined to
take action at anothei gathering of the
Lehr and Wehr in a larger hall and more
central location, to be assefhbled within
twenty-four hours. This was to be in
Greif's hall, Monday night, May 3.
Tho Arbeiter Zeitung, of which Spies
and Schwab were editors and managers,
called together the armed men who were
to engage in this compact to murder. The
Sunday evening edion published a few
hours after the Bohemian hall meeting
contained tho cabalistic legend; "Y
Komme Montag Abend." (Y Come
Monday night.) This,was the summons
to the armed sections to meet,ns they did,
Monday night at Griefs. The call was
published again Monday afternoon, indi
cating tho importance of tho matters to
como before the meeting. Tho Sunday
issue of the Arbeiter had a significant ar
ticle urging "quick and immediate
action," adding: "By Monday or Tues
day the conflict must have reached its
highest intensity, else success will then
be doubtful." Almost before the ink on
this could dry, Spies w as at the 'Snnday
afternoon meeting of the Central Labor
Union arranging to have himself dispatch
ed to McCormick's factory the following
day to address the thousands of strikers
out along the old black Road.
From the top of a freight car, on the
prairie near MeCormick's, next after
noon Monday Spies belched into the
ears of 12,000 excited strikers, mostly
foreigners, the hottest harangue ever ut
tered by him in public. He spoke in the
German language, of which ho is more
master even than of English. Tho effect
oi his words was like magic.
"OX TO MCCORMICK'S 1" '

darinz anarchists present, rushed at the

Neebe and other uotables of the I. A.
A. took horse, and in person scattered
the circularbroadcast, not failing to leavo
copies with the International "armed sec
tions" gathered in Greif s hall 54 West
Lake street. Thatthe" circular'gave tho
impulse to the action of the armed sec
tions at this Monday night meeting, and
inspired the adoption of
THE rLAN OF BOMB-THROWCrO
Agreed upon, is apparent from tho fact
thatits contents wero first fully discussed.
Then the complete detailed plan of the
particular method of inaugurating tho
wholesale murder for which they origi
nally organized was formally considered
and adopted, the timo for the slaughter
being left for the Arbeiter Zeitung, to
designate by publishing the word "ruhe"
(peace). This latter feature wa3 the
work-of Adolph Fischer, who had como
to the meeting straight from the Arbeiter
Zeitung, where he had been assisting
Spies and Schwab. That Fischer wa
carrying out the plans of his superiors ap
pears more clearly from tho circum
stances that it was he who manocuvered
the "armed sections" out of their idea of
holding the Haymarket meeting in the
morning instead of at night, as Spies and
the other leaders had decided.
A darker picture is not to be found in
history than this spectacle of four-scoro
murderous conspirators in the wretched
saloon basemeut,rcrr.orslessly plotting tho
massacre that occurred not a, hundred
yards distant, before another midnight
passed. Rudolph Schnaubelt, the throw
er of the Haymarket bomb, was among
the eighty or more assassins who com
posed thLr horrible meeting. Though ad
journment did not come till long after 11
it was not 7 o'clock next, morning, Tues
day, when Louis Lingg, a member of
this identical "armed section,"'.opened
the chest of dynamite that had Iain un
touched in his lodgings since .four days
before. Under his expert directions six
of the men who attended the murder
meeting of the provions night, quickly xe
to work then and there filling globular
shells with dynamite.
Early as was the hour, Fischer was also
at work getting out tho hand-bills calling
the Haymarket mass meeting. The
hand-bill's last words were : "Working
men, arm yourselves and appear in full
force I" What Spies, Schwab and the
other leaders were doing that day may
bo partly inferred from the
BCRXDia APPEALS FOR RESISTANCE
and calls "To Arms I" that appeared in
continued on fourth page.
