WASIIIMUOS , Nov. 2 [ Special Telegrnm to the HIT. ] The supiemo court of the United States has denied the motion for a wilt of en or in the anai chist case. The de cision , delivcicd by Chief .Justice AVaito'wns that of the full bench , and occupied thiity- sevcn minutes in rapidicading. In shoit.tho supreme court of the United States holds that the statutes nnd constltutlonnl laws of the Htulu of Illinois as to the qualifications of Jutors nnd the alleged coercion of defendants to testify against themselves are the same ns those of the United States. The Heir Most letter nnd other points biought up in nigumcntby coun- cl for defendants woio ruled out on the ground that they had not been mentioned in the coutis below. There seemed to bo no doubt in the mind of this com t about the re fusal of the wilt of eitor an hour befoio the coutt convened. Uxtra precautions were taken to keep out of the loom the crowd assembled. Only enough to com foitably illl the room wcic admitted , while the overflow filled the conidors almost to the chambers of the i citato and house of topic- Hcntativcs. The excitement was intense , though no ono scenu d to doubt the tesult , T. Handolph Tinker , for the defendants , was the onlj' attorney engaged in the i aso who was at the bin when the decision was lead The gtavitvof the question involved , and im portance of the decision to bo tlcliveied , was plainly nmikcd on cveiy countenance on the bench when the Just ices'entered thoioom. .lustii es Miller and Walto sighed deeply n number of times , and the voiio of the hitter tieinbled for some minutes after ho began leading. At times ho 10- peatcd , falteied and going hick rctoad whole sentences. The faces of the otltei seven JustUes weio turned to the floor dui- lifg nentlv allot the entiiodelivcty. Occasion ally Justiio Wnito took his eves f torn the paper , looked the audience in the face and gave emphasis to points in the decision which marked the outlineof his intentions and nhovved what had guided the bench in t cach ing its conclusion , Notnwoidwas uttered audibly in the couit loom about the case , at the conclusion of the decision , but genet al satisfaction is expressed outside. Opinion is about equally divided on the subject of commutation of sentence. Tr\t of the Decision. WASHINGTON' , Nov. 2 The decision of the United States suptcmo court upon the peti tion for n wilt of ciror in the case of the Chicago cage amuchists was announced this afternoon by Chief Justice Walto In along and caiefully propatcd opinion , w Inch occupied thittyflvc minutes in reading. The text of the dicision is as follows : Supi emo com t of the United States , Oc tober term , lbs , ex pirto : When , as in this cnse , application is made to us nt the sugges tlon of oneof our number , to vvlion n similat application lias been ptevionsU nddicssed for allowance * of a wilt ol eitor to the highest court of t state under section 709 of the re vised statutes , it is our duty to nsccttnin not only whether any question revlcwablo here was made and decided in the proper conr below but whether it is of u ehiiiacter t ( Justify us in biiuging the Judgement heto foi ro-cxamliuiUon.

Thopiopiioty of adopting n similar uili upon motions in open couit for the allowance ot a wilt is apparent , for ceitainly w < would not bo Justillcd as n couit in scndini out u wilt to bung for tovlevv n Judgment o thehighpst couit of the state when It K at : parent in the face of thou-cord that it wouli bo our duty to grant a motion to ufllim a Boon as it w as made in proper foi in. In th present case wo have had the benefit of u ; gumcnt in summit of the application , uiu \vhilo counsel itiivo not deemed it their dut to go fully into the merits of Uiu question involved , they have shown us distinctly win the decisions wet o of which they complan nnd how the questions mosc. In this way w nro nblo to determine- n couit In scssio whether the ei rors alleged nto such ns to Ju tlfy us ns to the bringing of the i aso hoi o fi roviovv. Wo piocccd , then , to consider wh. the questions are in which , If it exists ut al om Juii dIcUon depends. The paiticular provision of the constitutic of the United States on which counsel ul are fouud In at tides 4 , 5 , 0 mi 4 of the amendments That tl Hrstton aitic-It's of the amendment were in intended to limit the povscts of the state jo' eimncnts In tcspcet to their own citizens , bite to opet tito on the national government nlor was decided moio than half n ccntuiy ag nnd that doclniatlon has been steadily ai liercd toslnio. It was contended , how eve in the argument that , though otilnally tl first ton amendments wetxi adopted as limit tlons on federal power , i ot insofar as tin BCCUIo and recoguko the fundamental r igh of common law lights of the toau tin make the pi iv lieges and immunities of tl man as n citizen of the United States ur cannot now be abridged by a state under tl fourteenth amendment. In other word while the ten amendments ns limitations ( power-wily npply to the federal guvcnunen and not to the states , jet insofar as thov d clot o or recognize the rights of it petson.tho ; rights tire thclis as citizens of the Unlit States , and tto ) fourteenth amendment us sudi lights limits the state power as tltoU amendments had limited federal power , It is ulso contended that the provision < the fourteenth amendment which deehn thut no stuto shall dcptlvo any peis.on of ill llbctty or property without duo pioeess law Implies thut every person chat ged wi crime in ft stnto shall bo entitled to u trial I tn impartial jury and shall not bo to testify against himself. The objections nro In brief. 'I. That a statue of n state us construed by the court deprived the petition ers of n trial by nn Impnitlal Jury nnd , 2. that Spies was compelled to give evidence against himself , Heforo consldcting whether the constitution of the United States has the effect which Is claimed , It Is proper to Inquire whether the federal questions relied on In fact arise on the face of this record. Ono statute to which objection is made is approved Match 12 , 1871 , and has been in force since July 1 of that year. The complaint is that tilts ttlal court , acting under this statute and in accoulancQ with the rcquitements , com pelled the petitioners against their will to submit to n trial by Jury that was not 1m- Impnitlal , nnd thus dcpitvcd them of one of UK ; fundamental rights which they had ns citizens of the United States under the na tional constitution , and If the sentence of the court Is carried Into execution , they will bo deprived of their lives without duo process of law. In Hopt vs. Utah , 120 United States I I'l , It was decided by this court that when n challenge by a defendant in n criminal a < tlon to n Juror for bias , ac tual or Implied , is disallowed and the Juror Is thcicu | > oi peremptorily challenged by the defendant and excused , and an Impartial and competent Jutoi is obtained in his place , no injury is done the defendant If , until the Jury is completed , ho has other pcremptoiy chal lenges which ho can use ; and so In Hajes vs Missouri , 120 United States , 71 , it was said that the light to challenge is the tight to 10- Jcct or select n Juior. If from those who 10- muin an impattiul jury is obtained the consti tutional light of the accused is maintained. Of the concctness of these tullijgs thcio is no doubt. Wo aio thetefoio confined in this ease to the rulings on the clullenges to the Juiois who actually sat at the trial. Of these there weio but two Thcodoio Ucnker , the thiid jutorwho was sworn , and A. T. Sanfotd , the last who was called and swotn after all the peiemp- lory challenges oi the defendant had'bcen exhausted. At the trial the court construed the statute to mean that although a Jutor called as a juryman may have foimed an opinion bused upon rumor or upon newspaper statements , but hascxpiessed no opinion as to the truth of the new spapor statement , ho Is still qualltlcd as a Jutorif he states that ho can fairly and impaitl.illy render a vet diet thcicon in act01 dame with the law and evi dence and the couit shall bo satisfied of the ttuth of such statement. It is not a test question whether the Juror will have the opinion which ho has foimed fiom new spapets changed bv the evidence , but whether his vcidiet will bo bused only upon the account which may heio bo given by witnesses under oath. Interpreted in this way , the statute is not materially dilTcrcnt from that of the ter- riloty of Utuhwhieh wehudundcrconsideia- tion in Hopt vs. Utah , and to which wo then give effect. As that was n teiiitonalstatute passed by a tciiitoiul legislature for the govcinment of n tcmtoiy over which the United States had exclusive Juusdietion , it came ihicctlj within thu opeintion of aiticlo d of the amendments which guai antecd to Hopt a tiial by an impntial jmy. No one nt that time suggested a doubt of the constitu tionality of the statute , and it was icgatdcd both in the tcintoiial com Is and here as f mulshing the piopei tules to ho obscived by a tct n tonal tourt in cmpiiiclling an impartial jutj in u i riminal case A simi lar statute vvns c-n.u ted in Now Yoik , May ! ) lbT2 , in Michigan , Api il Ib , Ib7r. , and also in Ncbi.tsk.i in lVi > The constitutionality of the statute of Now Yoik was sustained by the ( omt of appeals in that state in-Stokes vs the People audit lias been acted upon without objection even since. So fut as wo have been able to dlsiovct , no doubt has ever been cut ct tallied in Michigan or Ncbiaska of the constitutionality of the statutes of those states , i capec , lively , but they have alwiivs been ticatrd bv their supieme contts as valid , both under thu constitution of the United States and under that of the state. Indeed , thutuloof the statute of Illinois , as it was constiued by the trial court , is not inalcii.illy difloicnt fiom that which has boon adopted by the coutts in many of the states without legislative action. Without pin suing this subject fuithcr , it is sufficient to say that wo agree ctitliely withthosu- picmo court of Illinois in the opinion that the statute on'its face , as constiued by the timl comt , is not repugnant to section 0 of article 2 of the constitution of that state , which unorantces to Iho accused paity in ovcty ciiminal proseculion aspccdvltial by an inipaitiul jmy in the county or district in which the offense Is alleged to have been committed. As this is substanlially thu pto- visions of the United States constitution on which the petitioners tely.it followsth.it even if their position ns lo Iho operalion and elTect of that constitution is collect the stututo is not open to thu objection which is made against it. The decision then reviews the cases of Juiois Donkcr and Sanloul and gives a copi ous exit act from the tccoid of their exami nation together with the judge's ruling , nnd continues : In He\nolds vs. the United States , ' .IS , United States 1-15 to 150 it waa decided by this com t that in 01 dor to justify the reversal of the Judgment of the supreme comtof the teiritoty of Utah foi lofusing to allow a challcngo of a Juior in aciimlnnlcasc on the ground that ho had foimed und ex- pi cssed an opinion aa to the issues to be tried , it must bo made clearly to appear that upon the evidence the court ought to have found that thu Jutor hud foimed such an opinion that ho could not in law be deemed impartial and thu case must bo ono Ir which it is manifest that the law left nothing to the conscience or discietlon of Iho couit i If such 11 thodcgieo of strictness which ii L requited In the oidmaiy cases of writs ft on ono couit to another in the snnio gencta jutisdietion , wo ought to bo catcful that it i ; not at nil telaxod tn n cnso like-thit. whcr the gi omul i elicd on for the revei sal by thi' couit of n judgment of the highest couit o ; the state is that the error complained of is sc great as to amount in law to u denial by lh < state of n ti lal by an unpai tial jury to one w ho is accused of ctime. Wo ate unhesitat L ingly of the opinion that no such case is dis closed by this iccoid. AVe eomo now to consider the objectior that the defendant , Kpios , was compelled In the couit to be u witness against himself Ho voluntatily olleicd himself as a willies' ' in his own behalf and by so doing ho became bound to submit himself to n ptoper cioss examination. The complaint is that ho w\v icquited on cioss examination to stati whether ho had teccivod n eeitatn * lette whiih was shown , put pot ting to linvobeci vviittcn bj Johan Most and addiesscd t < him , and upon his s.tiing that ho had , the couit allowed the letlcr to bo lead in ovl clini'o against him. This , it Is claimed , wai not n proper cross examination. It is no contended that the subject to which thocross e\amlnalion iclaled was not peiUncut t < the issue tn bo tiled , and whether n cioss examination must bo confined to maltei pettiiient lo the testimony in chief or ma ; bo extended to the matter In issue , is cci tuinlv a question of state law in the courls o thu st.itu and not of fcdeial 1 ivv Something has been said In the .nrgumcn about an alleged unrcMsomiblo scan h an seizure- the papeis and piopeity of somu o thu defendants and their use in evidence o tholiialof the caso. Special refcic-nco i made in thla conneclion lo the icltor of Most about which Spies was cross examined , bi ; wo bnvu not been icferied to any pai t of th lecoul in which it appeal s that objection wa made to the use of the ovidenoo on th.it ao count , und upon tills point the si ptuno couit of the state In tin pat t of Its opinion w hich has been prlnte with this motion lematks as follows "Thu objecllon that the letter was obtalnc fiom Iho dcfcndanl by an unlawful scizuio ! made torthollisi llinoinlhis couit. It vu not mndo on the tiial in Iho comt bclov Such nn objection ns this , which is not suggcs cd bv the iialuio of the offetcd evidence , bi depends upon the ptoof of an outsida fat should huvo bcc'ii made on the tiiul , the d feline should have ptovcd the Most letler wi ono of the Irllers Illegally seized by the polk und should then have moved to exclude or o ] pose its admission on the giound that It w. obtained by such illciral scizuio. Th was not done and thotofoio w cannot consider the constitulloti ; question supposed lo bo iuvolvei Even though the court was wren in sav ing that it did not appear that the Mo lullf-f was ono .of Iho papers illegally scUci it still lomaiiis unconttadicted that no o jcction was made In the trinl couit to its ii' ' mission on , that acvouut. To give usjuii diction under section TOO of the icvisi statutes , bocaitso of the denial by n sta' ' com t of any xitle , i iglit , pi ivilejra or Imniu it. , clulmcd under the constitution or ar Ircaly or statute of the United Stales , it must appear that such title , right , privilege or immunity was ( specially set up or clulmcd ) nt Ihc proper tlmo nnd in Iho proper way lo ' bo rel lovable , the decision must bo ngalnst the right so set up or clnlmed ns the supreme court of the state was revlovvlng the decision of the trial court. To make the qucslion revlcvvable It must nppcnr that the claim was made In that court because the supreme court vvns only authorized to icvlovv the Judgment of that court for errors committed thcro and w o can do no mor. This Is not , as seems to bo supposed by ono of the counsel for Iho do- titloncrs , n quesllon of the waiver of a rlaht under the constiluUon , laws or Iretilies of Iho United States , but n erucstion of claim. If not set up or claimed in the ptoper court below the Judgment of the stnlo court in the action is cone-lush e so far ns the right of levluw h'cro is concerned. Thfc question whclherIho Icller , If obtained as claimed , would huvo been competent evi dence Is not bufoto us. nnd , therefore , no foundation Is laid under this objection for the exercise of our jutlsdictton. As to the suggcslion bv counsel for Ihc po- lllioncrs , Spies mid Ficldcn , that Spies , hav ing been born In Germany mid Fiuldcn In Gieat lititlan , they have been denied by the decision of the court below the rights gi anled lo them by trealles between the United Slnlcs and Ihclr rcspec- tlve counliies , 11 is sufficient to sny that no such questions were made and decided In either of Ihe com Is below , and they cannot bo raised In this court for the Hist ttmu. Wo huvo not been lofeired to any treaty , neither mu vyo nwate of any under which such n question c ould bo raised. Doing of the opinion , therefore , that the federal questions presented by the counsel for the petitioners nnd which they say they desire lo argue , nro not in fnct involved in thu determination of the case as it appears on the fuco of the recoid , wo deny the wilt. The decision of the court is unanimous. The NCVVN In ChlcaKO. CHICAGO , Nov. 2 [ SpecialTelegram to the BhF. ] The third grcnt event in the hlstor- Icnl cnso of the condemned nnnrchlsts the denial of the pclillon for n writ of error by the supreme coutt of the United Slales has not caused any noticeable sensation In the city of Chicago. In the business paits of the city , whcio the newsltfjs were shouting "Extras" with the news from Washington this afternoon , theio was n htllc excitement. Copies of the papeis w ere cngctly bought mid little gioups would collect mound each uur- chaser to heal the news. The policemen oveiy where wcto especially tnlcrcsled and nppatenUy without exception they all bought copies of the pa peis containing Iho news. But this little fluny scarcely lasted an hour and now thcio is not the slightest excitement mound the jail or anywhere else. Theio is no mistaking the feeling of Chicago , however - over , on Ibis question. With fcwo xceptlons the final decision is leccivedwtth satisfaction. It has for a few days been considcied a foie- gene conclusion hero that the writ of ciror would bo denied , so that the nuws to day was in a mcasuin discounted. Each of the con demned anaichists Ihcniselvcs uppaiently hud no hope from the supieme court. It was 11:45 : o'clock when a icporter car ried to the Jail news of the decision and it was some minutes before mi } body had the hatdihood to communicate the intelligence lo the seven. The men were all locked up in their cells , aswcro the other piisonets , the cxcreiso hour being over. The icpotler wiolo Iho information hastily on a slip of paper , and Chief Clerk Piicu look Ihc notes up to Spies nnd Parsons to sco what they w ould say. The few pet sons in the Jail office slooel at the door leading into the cage and stunned their cjes to see how the men would look w hen they read what w as in the notes. Their fuees might ns vv ell have been stone for nil the feeling they betrajcd. Not a shiver , not a shrug of the Bhouldets , nor any net thut looked us if it mudo miy difTeicnco to them whether the supieme couit decided tltov should hang or not. "I've got news , " said Clerk Price to Pai- sons , handing him Iho piece of paper. "Oh , it's jou , is it ! " ejaeulaled Iho rapid talker. Then ho blew u volume of cigar smoke Inlo Iho pup"r ns he unfolded it and caielcssly lead. Not a muscle moved , and if his heat t stood still un instant , no one could tell it. Pulling his cigar between his lips ngain ho picked up his nuwspapci und slow ly return keel : "Well , I don't think I huv c any thing lo say. " "Will jou answer the note ? " "No , I believe not. " "You believe-it I" "It muj' bo true. " Spies' conduct was Pai sons' over again Mr. Osboino , who keeps the death watch in "Muideiei's How , " was then prevailed upon lo go lo the cell of each nnnichist und tell him the decision of the Bupicmo court. When the white huiied olllcei came down he was ticiublmg with emotion mid his voice was choked "I don't want to do that again , " stammeied ho. "Every time I spoke to one of those follow si thought I was giving him his death sentence , w Inlo each ouu tin nccl and looked at mo as unconcerned as if I w a telling him nothing of anj' impoi lance JLmg said ho expected it. Fischer said : 'Is that soi' and the rest merely grunted their ac knowledgment. It did seem as if a Hush spread over their faces when I told them.but pet haps I imagined tt. Each ono tutned lo whatever he was doing and I passed on tc the next. Just see how I tiemble , while they nro ns cool us cucumbers. " Within fifteen minutes after the verdict W ns known eight or ten ofllcers in citizen' clothes appeared. Two of them slopped quietly into the Jail and the olhets disposed of themselves in the criminal couit building nnd about the neighborhood. The bailiff ni the outer door leading into the jail couit sajs ho is instructed to admit no ono , but vvhcthet this applies to the near iclativcs of Iho cleat 1 : sentenced men is not known. Sheriff Malison visilcd Iho jail nt 1 o'clocl and hud a confeienco of over half an houi w lib .Taller Folz in the piivato office of the jail. Asntcsultof the confeienco , no visl lors nro nllowcd lo cnlcr Iho jail court j arc to see any prisoner , whethci anarchist or not. Shciiff Matlsot suid concerning Iho older : "I don't want tc make any fuss sbout il , but the visits of othei anaichists have got to slop. Heucofoilh Ihc doomed men will not bo allowed to huvo 11113 mote icctcation hours. Peisonally I wouh like to giant them all Iho favors I could , bit I don t think It wouH bo wise to do so. I njay seem foolish nnd pet Imps is foolish , bu 1 don't want these men lo cheat the gallow by killing theinsclves.

All I know is Hint wo shall dccltfo as rapidly ns may bo upon our course und pur sue it to thu best of our power. " Tbeio was lltllu surpiisu among the police officers over the announcement. The police havu all thought that the United Stales su- ptemu couit would not Intel fere , and Iho gen et ul impression umong them is that the sen tence will bo carried into effect November 11. "If they mo to be hung at all , " said Lieuten ant Fitzpalrick , the man who , when the bomb was huilccl inlo Ihe police lanks al thu Hajmarket , said : "Full in , men , steady , chat go , " "they should die on that day.

" "That's " said prisoners. so , nnother police oftlciul. "Thero is no dcsiru on the part of the ofllcers who have suffered fiom the throwing of the bomb to tortuto thu murder ers. They only want to BOO the law canted out" Captain Buckley compressed his lips when the news reached him at the urmorj"So , " he suid , "tho supreme court hns upheld the lighteous verdict and Just decision of the slalc supreme eoutt. It isietrlbulton for the mui dur of the ofllcers whoso wives nro now widows nnd cliildten orphans. I Irust and believu that the governor will not interfere. " The news spi cad through the vaiious police stations us fust as electricity would cany it. Hardlj' hnd the woid reached the offices of the nuwspapeis before Iho telephone opetat- ors in the piincipal pollco stalioris were told of it and they in tut n informed the various substations. In this wajf bofoio noon the citizens in Ihe vciy oulskirls of Iho cilj weio Infotmed of Ihe news , and long before the whistles in the different factories blew the summons lo icturn to work Iho men wet o foimed in knots discussing the chances of the umirchists on a commutation of sentence. As to the piobable action of thu governor nothing but the merest ! eonjectuto can bo given. Many who are intimate with him do- clmo that ho will not interfeio. jet othets who me almost as well posted insist that Fiuldcn nnd Parsons nt least will sccuro u commutation of their sentences. "I do not know just now what action the Amnesty association will take , " said J. 11. Buchanan. "I ptcsume , however , that they will continue us they have been doing , seem ing signatures to the pctilion. A mass meet ing will bo held Saturday evening and n eoni- nnllcc appointed to take chaigo of Iho peli- lion und present it to the governor. The Anincsly associullon had nothing whatever to do with the case befote the coutts. That wasthuwotk of the Defense Fund associa tion , but now that nothing further can bo done in the coutis , I presume Iho Defense association will join hands with the Amnesty association and both will do their best toward Influencing the governor , The slgnututes nlteady number many thousands , und they are increasing every day. ' The letlers of Llngg , Fischer nnd Engel , declining Unit thej'can accept no mitigation or commutation of there sentence , and unless thej uio allowed to co forth from their pi ison cells free men thej' prefer lo die , have fallen like a second bomb in Ihe midst of those who have been exerlingUiemselves lo obtain from Iho gov ei nor a commutation of theii scnlcitce. While thcio is not believed to bo anj1 danger from the ardent sjnipathlzuis of the men , jet thu police have taken extraordinary pi coali tions to pi event any such affair All the residences in the neighborhood of the jail have been under conslant surveillance bj- the police for the last month or two , und nil soils of inqunics ns to the boarders or roomers have been instituted bj' detectives.
