CiurAno. May 15. Preparation have
been made to attempt to secure tho re
lease from the penitentiary of tho con
vieted Anarchist. Fielden, Schwab and
Neebe. by a method heretofore not hint
ed at in tho case. In a short tlmo an
application will m mado to Judge
Oresbatn for a writ of habeas corpus on
the ground that tho prisoners aro de
talned without due process of law. No
less an authority than General Henja
mln F. Hutler says that tho effort will
almost beyond doubt lie successful, tho
opinion being based on the expression
of the United States Supreme Court in
the proceedings heretofore brought Imi
fore that lxsly. "lien" Hutler I a regu
larly retained associate counselor In tho
The Anarchists' lawyers say that tho
writ of habeas corpus will lie asked for
on the ground that after the sentence of
death was passed upon tho condemned
Anarchists and Neelaj wa doomed
to spend fifteen years in the peniten
tiary, the caso was appettled to tho
Supreme Court, where the finding of the
lower court, with the sentence of death
for Spies, Parsons, l.lngg, Fischer,
Kngol, Schwab and Fielden, wasalllrmed.
Tho ptlsoners wer? not taken before the
Mipromo Court to hear the a (Urination of
their sentence and their lawyers were
not even notified to bo present Tho
claim Is mado that this N a breach of
their constitutional rights and that tho
Constitution even goes so far as to say
that a sentence of death rendered In
the absence of the prisoners U not duo
process of law. General Hutler writes
under date of Mav 10: "After giving
Mitllclont examination to the record in
the erne of Fielden, 1 have come fully t
the conclusion that such action is errt
neous In that It was an attempt to take
his Hfo without cfuo process of law. I
therefore advlso very strongly your tak
ing a writ of error to have such pro
cedure corrected by tho judgment of
tho Supreme Court of tlm United States,
if any technical objections are made, to
tho Circuit Court, for a writ of habeas
corpus for Fitdden, because under that
writ the facts, as well as the law, can
be discussed and forms are of no conse
quence when they stand in the way of
the duo course of justice. Of course,
the decisions of thes questions will re
Ucvn any of his follows who are suller
Ing from the same errots If tit elded as I
believe they must be, save tho men
whose lives have liecn taken without
duo process of law."
