Of course the Island men stopped ready to

olllcerns against the priest who , for some
reason , was pugnacious. The result was
that the pi hut led the man away nmld loud

efface the Impression that had been nindu of

and of their subjection to tlio priests. If the
man had been piomptly anestcd nnd carrii d
to Jail In the sight of thu Orancomen , theio
would have been cheois by them forMoilej's
murderers , as tlio police nre called. The
Iilsh constabulary are n splendid bodv of

single shots only where vollejs would

now that Shank Hill is suiiounded by
tioopj and thej aie unable to move without
an escort , shows vvi etched judgment on tlio
pint of some one because It is a total suncii-
dei to the mob. It Is alieady seen that this
Burrondei has piobibly lost many lives.
When the authorities have been foi CPU to re-

The man named Kipier , a Protestant mar
ried to a Catholic wife , w i's tried to-dti > for
alleged shooting thioii0'h windows. The evi

spirit. The old man , hardly able to stand , was
morallj convicted of hav Ing shot lepeatedlj
at people of his own talth , while hlsdaugh-
teishccm to have londcd the gun which ho
used. A seaich In his bick yard icvoaled a
hole in which dead bodies or arms had been
bulled , although these were not found , as the
authoiitles did not search iho jaid until
tvventj-four hours nttcr a newspaper man
! iad pointed out the location. KIdence
was given of the use of the
hole as n burial place. A
Protestant who testified against Napiei was
forced nt oneo to leave his house in the
Catholic quarter. In tact the town has been
full of moving people both today and > es-

foiccd to lenvo the Catholic quaitei. This is

again thiough the piess. Tim in in was

' 1 hero must bo something In the coustiuc-
tion ot the man's brain which made him
give utterance to Ids wild talk.
The mm loved notoriety , tint
wns all. Unoof the bust points made by
Foster In the afternoon was In substantially
the followinc language :
The pioseeution Hud gieat significance In
the publication in the Aibelteioltuiig of the
word "rube , " which they say means roCt ,
lieace. Now , when the police anlved on the
Havmarket Captain Ward said : "I com
mand jou In tlio nami ! ot the sttitoof llllnolB
todisper.se injacwbly. " To this Fielden , who
was speaklni : , nnsweied natuially enough :
"Why , eaiitaln , this is a iioiu eible meeting , "
or 'wo are peaceable-1 Now sliould tlio
Htato see auj thing so significant in this re
mark. The evidence shows that the meet
ing was pe.teeable , and 1 wa > hero It was
never Intended to bo otheivvlso. II
at that moment some one on Ills own
responsibility tlnew a bomb among the police ,
and that fact vvttiu now knovvii , tlio Word
"iuhc"oi Flelden's icmaik , "we aiopeaio-
able. " would then havu the n.ituial .signlli-
calico of meaning on thn lacu ot them. In-
stoul ot being , as tliu state Insibls , Kjnibols
of riot and bloodshed.
Fuithcr , alter enhirglng upon this feat mo
of the case and decl irlng that thu evidence ,
fell farshoit of prov inn that the Hajmniket
rioting had anj connection with the conspir
acy to attack tlio police , he devoted consider
aolcltimc to consideration ol the testimony ot
John Heiinett as opposed to that of Hnnj L.
Gllmei Heinett , Foster showed , had bie.ii
Interviewed bv the state. He had beeiihliown
nplctuieol Si hnaube.lt , and upon honestly
declaring that he tould not ieco nl/e It as
that ol tlio bomb tlnowei was allowed to uo.
Ho could nof-cive the btato as u witness
liennett swoie tilal the bomb was tluown
fiom a point fat enough from ttiiit fixed by
the pioseeution tooveitluow the theoiy based
on Gdmei's tfitnnmu that Spies lit the
fuse ol tne bomb nnd Hint thu bomb wns
tluown by bchnaubelt Irom the north of
Crane's alley. Who was to bo behoved
Hcmietl , w ho had been ov ei the ground suicu
the night of tlio ilot and taken careful meaH-
uieuiciits , and whoso ch.uattei had not snf-
feied from the investigations < it Capfalu
bchaack and his detectives , or ( llniei , who
swore bo L-llblv , who hid bieu iin-
p. ached bv n do/en witnesses and wl.o .
was a ( ir.uul Aunj man , but whether
he h id fought uinloi the staii an I strines or

Whv was ho nlaced on tlio stamlwhen the
tiialwasln pie iiss' ' Hucause tlieio was : v
missing link. So Hatty L. ( Iilmei took tlio
stand and sud : "Kither than have the play
slop I'll tiiinlsh the missing link. " Foster
leviewedthp testimony ol dllmci pxhins-
tlvelj , denoiinied him as "a stupendous , a
roloss.il , a monumental lint , " anil tinning
towaid the defense said cxpicsslvulj : "It
the testimony of llanj ( illmoi is true. Au
gust Spies and Adolph Fischer must die. "
Fostei releired to the testimony ot In-
foimeis Waller and Sell er. They have
been given the choice of the rope and , i
written statement such as would servo the
pmposo of the piosccntioii. They , ol course ,
as any man would , chose the lesser of two
evils , and tiemblingl ) took the stand to
swuai away the lives ol lormci coiip.idoH.
"Ibav"said Fostpi , "and I not onlj say It
hero In the comt room , but on the xtieetand
eveiywheie , that as a la\\\ei . 1 am opposed
to such means. Let iustlee bu done tliough
tile heavens fall. " 1 osti'i ( oneluded his ad
dress with an eloquent -nul lloweij appeal to
the jury. He asked them not to commit an
act which thc.v would ic iet dining thoie-
muindei oi tlieli lives.
Captain Ulack said he would piefer not to
