THE ANAEOHIST'S CONFESSION.

Edison's Phonograph Sold For One MiHion
(SPECIAL TO TnE.ASTOBUN.)
Chicago, July 19. Frank Chebowa,
oneof the three anarchists arrested
by inspector Bonfield for conspiracy,
has made a full and formal confes
sion. It was that Kronck had un
folded to Chebowa, the plans of the
anarcnists lor revenging Jnelden,
Parsons, Spies and other Haymarket
offenders; and had told of the bomb
which he (Kronck) had invented. It
was no larger than a base-ball and
was to ba be loaded with dynamite
aim una ui uruKen giass, n was de
nied by Chebowa. that there was a
plot tf murder the judges and the
inspector, that is.Tie heard of no such
definite scheme. They were talked of
as was Capt Schasck and he under
stood that he was to pay more atten
tion to the captain than to any one
There was no concerted nlan of
action, but it was agreed that when
all preparations were made he, and
two others were to be informed by
Kronck, who brought him two bombs
of broken glass and two sticks of
dynamite from which he was to make
bombs of gas-pipe after tho usual
pattern. The other two men were
supplied with bombs and dynamite.
He had the stuff in his house for
about a weekend then grew so afraid
that it would be discovered, that he
threw it in the privy vault. This
was the substance of the confession,
which inspector Bonfield will use in
The confession is much more in
detail and covers about 30 closely
priuted pages. By his confession it
is understood Chebowa ha3 virtually
secured immunity from prosecution.
He is really much less guilty than
either "Wolf, Kronck, Chepak, or any
one of the men not yet arrested. He
has agreed to give his testimony in
open court, where it will corroborate
with other evidence secured by in
spector Bonfield, against the con
spirators. Two other men are still at
large but they may be arrested at any
