the Rlnycr Tho Deed Committed With
out it Moment' Warning to tlio Victim.
Chicago, Oct. . Mayor Harrison
was shot tlircn times whllo standing in
tlie hallway of his homo at Ell Ashland
lioulcvarrt Saturday evening at 7:'J3 o'clock
by a man giving lili tinmo as Kugono Pat
rick Preinlcrgnst. He died at 7:40 o'clock,
fifteen minutes Inter. Prendergast after
firing tlio shots, tlio Inst of which wns
fatal, went to tlio Hesplnlnes street sta
tion, whoro ho gave himself up.
Mayor Harrison had boon at the World'
fair nil tiny and wns lingering over tils
dlnntr at 7sS!5 p. in. when the door boll
rang nnd n moment Inter the pnrlo'.' maid
' otme In mid bald a young man who said
.He wns n city ofllcliil desired to see Mr.
Harrison. Tlio mayor was n man who
eevsr refused to sen unyliody nnd ho Im
lutrtlately left the tnblo nnd went into tho
hall, which was brightly lighted. Ho ad
vanced to within u few feet of tlio assassin,
when tho hitter pulled out a pistol and bo
gnu firing without a word. Tl ree shots
were fired as rapidly as he could pull the
trigger nnd two of tho bullets took effect
iu tho vlctlm'.i body.

Within a few minutes after tho shots
were fired Dr. Foster, who had been sum
moned, arrived, and almost simultaneous
ly enmo Drs. I.ynmii, Washburn nnd
Thomas. Thero was nothing to bo done.
The assassin' bullet had accomplished Us
purpose. Death wns doing its work. The
dying man spoke very few words nfter the
doctors arrived. To Dr. Foster ho ex
claimed Just beforo ho died: "Where is
Annie his Intended wife, Miss Howard;
why don't somebody fetch her." Then a
moment later he, nsked for water and
epoko no more. Dr. Foster says Hint the
bullet that killed Mr. Ilnrrlion wns one
that entered just ubovo the navel, it hav
ing caused internal hemorrhage.. The
other body wound was in tho right side
Just under thunrui. Ono shot took effect
in the left hand.
It Is not too much to nny that "politics
did it." For tho assassin shot becnuso he
wasns hoclnlms, disappointed in getting
nclty office, nnd tho mayor's presence in
the city nt tho tlmo was caused by tho
coming election, for which ho hnd post-
iioned his marriage. Had ho carried out

frank. Ho knew what ho wnntcd nnd
whnt ho thought ho could do nnd ho said
It "right out." Thero was no deception
about Cnrtcr Harrison.
In tlio'ycnr mentioned he wns elected a
county commissioner on what was called,
In rercrcncH to I lis tiieu nut recently past
conflagration, tlio "fireproof" or citizens'
ticket. Ho served with honor In that ca
pacity through those trying days, nnd in
lb7i! was prevailed upon to innKo mo incc
for congress against John 1). Ward. In
Oils contest Mr. Hnrrjson wns defeated by
plurality of 7(0 votes. In 1874 ho ran
SKalu, Ids opponent on this ocraslon being
Ucorgi It. Wivls (the present director gn
srul of tl.o World's fair). The contest was
3tio of tlio closest over recorded. Both
candidates claimed election, nnd n recouut
of tlio ballots wns found necessary to de
ride between them. Tlio second counting
proved Mr. Harrison tlio victor by tlio
slender majority of eight votes.

Ho ran again this year nnd was elected
by tho greatest majority a mayor over got
here. This was douo as was his fourth
election against tho uultcd efforts of near
ly tho whole city press. Thero was but
ono influential paper for Harrison last
spring tho Times and ho owned that.
Tho power of tho press got two very black
eych In the lifetime of Mayor Harrison.
Mr. Harrison wrote but ono book nnd
that was an uecount of his voyage around
the world, In which he wns accompanied
by two boys hit own son aged 1H, and tho
son of Mr. Ambcrg, a trusted frfbud,nged
17. Tho book was called "A Race with tlio
Sun," and was a graphic and character
istic description of his Journey, in which
characteristically ho kept out of the usual
routes traveled and went over routes rare
ly or never travelod.
Mayor Harrison wnsnkiud-henrtud, out
spoken mnu, who never put on nny "frills"
mid was always nppronchnblo. It was to
this fact that he owos his death. It ho had
been "hedged about" a llttlu tho assassin

Mr. Harrison, so terribly bereaved, Is In a

think will permanently affect her health,

Harrison began when she visited ono of

I.oul Lines "hi.
ClllCAOo, Oct. Ul. Prendergast Is brood
ing over hfs "wrongs" In tho cell in the
county Jail whero Louis l.tugg, tho
Anarchist, cheated tho gallows by blowing
his bend off with a high explosive cart
ridge. He, scowls on reporters and has
nothing to say but that he was justified.
The grand jury has promptly Indicted hltn
and tho sentiment Is that his alleged in
sanity should not save him from stretch
ing hemp. He is held ns n crank of the
Utilteau shapo nnd not as a lunatic.
It turns out tlint he lins been writing
letters to senators about tho Sherman law
repeal bill urging tho sllvcritcs to stand
out against cloture, which ho said would
result Iu bloodshed. Ills principal victim
lu tho letter writing matter was Senator
Dubois, who got numerous letters, all
urging tho silver men to stand to their
guns, and declaring that President Clove
land was only binning. He was only one
of many, however, of tho snmo kind, for
the sliver senators have beeudelugcd with
such ellusloas from similar cranks.
Prendergast was born in County Gal
way, Ireland, April t, 1808, but was
brought to Chicago whllo yet n babe. Ho
was educated ut n Homan Catholio school
hero nnd was nlways careful About his de
votions. According to his mother's state
ment some of his father's relatives wero
insane enough to bo confined In nsylums
in Ireland, but ho never showed signs of
Insanity here. He wns morose, however,
nnd did not get along with his compan
ions. He wns at ono time a newsboy At
uniaun, nnd had tho sntao reputation
there, but no one thought Mm Insane. Ills
hobby for the last two yet,rs has been the
single tax theory.

A Shook to l'resldent Clovulnnd Views of
CillCAao, Oct. 31. Tho shock to all
classes of men nt tho nows of Carter Hnr
risou's sudden taking off was great. Pres
ident Cleveland would not bellevo tho

greatly shocked. He said the event would
leave regret and palu nil over tho world.
Secretary Grusham said the less was Irre
parable. Vlco President Stevenson said
that Mr. Harrison was one of tho ablest
men he ever mot. Senator Voorhces de
clared that Illinois hnd lost ono of her
greatest men, aud Senator Hill agreed
with that view. Senator Palmer snld he
hnd lost a near friend who would hnvo
probably been a senator from Illinois. All
Illinois men were shocked nnd grieved.
At New York Chatincoy M, Dopuw snld
Mayor Harrlton had n sploudld grasp of

Harrison, when seen ut his homo here aud

with every evldcnco of Joy nnd festivity

The Meeting at Festival Hall.
