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

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 :

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
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

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

Thfc question whclherIho Icller , If obtained

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-

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. Thulr fttends migh
give them daggers or poison , and although
know that If they should want to kill themselves
