CAOO. March t. Chief of Police
i XI. fihinnv. hla son Harrv and his
r., James Folry. were wounded by an
Mrhlst who attempted to assassinate
Oa poll. official In the hall of the latter
.rsldVare, SI Lincoln Court, ahortly after
t o'clock thla morning. The desperate
struggle. In whlrh Mra. Bhlppy and her
daughter Georgletta joined, was termi
nated when the chief drew hla own re
volver and hilled hla assailant. Attempts
to Identify the dead man have thus far
reaulted in fallur.
The attack l believed to have been the
reault of a widespread conspiracy to harm
officials who have been active In sup-
preening manifestations of ' anarchists In
this community. Other city officials are
said to havs been threatened, and a police
spy. who recognised the corpse of the man
Vho Invaded Bhlppy1! home as that of a
person who regularly attended anarchists'
meetings, asserted that the man was
chosen by lot to do away with not only the
chief of police, but Mayor Busse as well.
The ramifications of the plot are said to
extend to other cities and. to be closely
connected with the killing of Rev. Leo
Helnrtchs, a Roman Catholic priest who
was sho tdown at the altar of his church
loan- Snippy May Die.
Harry Chippy is I he most severely hurt
of thoae Injured in today's affray. He was
shot through the breast twice and was
probably fatally wounded. His father was
stabbed In the arm, while Foley received
a bullet In the wrist. Mrs. Bhlppy was
kicked by the desperado, but her hurts are
slight. .
Following the attack squads of police
were sent Into the Italian and Ghetto dis
tricts of the city. Places known aa head
quarter of secret societies suopectod of
anarchistic tendencies were raided and be
'fore midnight a score or more of arrests
had been made. A coroner's Inquest ever
the body of the anarchist was al started
and State' Attorney Hcaly announced that
the March grand Jury of Cook county,
which 'we a convened today, will be given
an opportunity to tnvvstlgale anarchistic
organisations in an attempt lo fasten responsibility-
-for- tbaj.-aMonk upon Its In
stigators. It We.' tfcd reported that Mayor
Buss Intends to Issue an order forbidding
all street meetings, the allegation being
made that such Catherine, whether of a
political or religious nature, are often made
the occasion for vicious attacks upon the
social order.
Chief Describes Attack.
That the attempt to kill Chief Snippy re
suited lit failure was due largely to the po
lleeman'a quickness la anticipating the pur
pose of his visitor's presence. The man hud
twice called at the house and askei for the
chief first, yesterday when he wai told
that Mr. Bhlppy was at work and, agilrt
early this morning, when a servant In
formed lilm that the chief could not be se-n
before f o'clock. When he rang the door
bell at the latter hour, the, chief hlms?lf
answered the call.
"A I opened the door." said Mr. Fhlppy
later, describing the attack, "the man
raised hie hat and I allowed him to step
Into the hallway. He handed ma an enve
lope. I glanced i t It and then the
atruok me that the man was up to son a
wrong. He looked like an anarchist. I
grabbed his arms ar,d called to my wife,
who waa In another room. Wheu ahe ran
Into the hallway, I aald: 'Mother, see If
this man has a revolver.'
"She felt one of his back pockets snd
said that he had.
"I tried to hold him with one hand and
draw my revolver with the other, but he
Jerked away and fell against the door. I
caught htm again, and while we were strug
gling, my eon. who waa upstairs, started
to my aid. He waa only a few stepa from
the bottom ot the etalrs when the man
freed one hand, drew Ms -revolver and fired
two shots at Harry. Then Foley, who had
t ken summoned by my daughter, stepp d
Into the ha' I way and the man ahot Mm. The
anarchist kicked my wife to one aide snd
by this time 1 had secured my own revolv
er, and both Foley and I opened fire.' At
my first shot, which struck him In the
head he fell. But I fired three more, one
In his head and two In his body. Two of
Foley' shots also struck the aesasstn."
Pollcerasn from all sections of the city
were at once put to work on the case. Am
bulances ana physicians were summoned,
and Foley and Harry Bhlppy were taken to
a hospital.
Body Not Ideattfled.
The body of the anarchist was removed
to a morgue. A search of the corpse failed
to reveal any marks by which It might be
Identified. 'la a pocket of the man's coat,
however, the polic edtscovered a small box
of losenges, the package bearing a label
Inscribed "Trowbridge Confectionery oom-
pany. Meadvllle, Pa." The losenges wire
sent to a chemist for analysts, the police
being of the opinion that they might con
tain poison. It la thought that It waa the
Intention of the ana renin to commit suicide
had be been arrested.
The police are firm In. the belief that the
attack on the chief was due to an anarch
Istlo plot. Theories that ths man may have
had a personal grievance against the offi
cial because of an arreet or some similar
matter were given up when detectives of
the department failed to recognise the
cor pas as that of a known criminal. Two
member of the force asserted that they
had seen the man at a meeting of anarch
lets in hall on the north side of the city
about Un day ago. The testimony of the
pollfe spy confirmed this view of the ease.
Bar levee rather Life.

bravery of her bob. Hha young man. who

The promises of his attorney, E. C. Strode
of Lincoln, that he would certainly show
up to the contrary notwithstanding. James
H. Kdmisteii, former chairman of the Ma
populist committee and former deputy state
oil inspector, failed to put In an appear
ance In tho United States district court
Monday morning. He was represented by
his other attorney, W. S. Summers, mho
produced a telegram from Dr. J. M. Jonci
at Jnterlschen, Fla.. stating that Mr. Ed
mlsten was confined to his bed there and
that to have him come to Nebraska at th'i
time would endanger hla life. A slmilai
statement was produced from Dr. Frei
Elche of Lincoln, the family physician ol
Mr. Edmisten.
Edmlsten's case, fraud In land deals, wai
called for trial last Monday and when
he and his attorneys failed to appear In
court Judge W. H. Munger declared tin
bond forfeited. Diligent effort was mde to
locato Edmisten. His attorneys refused to
tell where he was and the court was given
to understand he waa between Lincoln and
North Platte, while a rumor said he was
in Mexico. It la believed those looking out
for his Interests have known all along Just
where he was and that other matters are
also thoroughly understood. His brother
of Lincoln is on his bond for 110,000.
The result waa that, no cases being
ready for trial, there was nothing for the
court to do but to adjourn for th term.
The Jury was discharged.
The next term of court will begin April
In Omaha. The first of the cases to be
called up at this term will be the twenty-eight-hour
case against the several rail
roads. Following the disposal of these
the Babcock and Agnew case will be
called and on April 20 th Chicago ranch
case will be called. It Is not known at
thi time Just when the Edmisten case
will be called again, owing to th condi
tion of Mr. Edmlsten's health.

LEXINGTON, Ky.,' March J.-W. B.
Hawkins, the man who originated the to- '
bacco growers' movement five year ago
and whs the first president of the Burley
Tobacco association, tomorrow will publish
In a card a warning to .grower of their
probable fate if they disobey the ultimatum,
of the Equity society on the crop of 19US.
The substance of the warning In part, fol
lowa: When your plant bed Is scraped or your
barn burned, send to Governor Wlflson
and he will let you have a battalion of
soldiers and their gatling gun to protect
your property, and maybe save you from
a whipping. There la an old saying: "I
do not care to buy a lawsuit." Do you
care to buy trouble in this way In flying
in the face of public opinion and In the
face of determined men, who believe you
their worst enemy snd who will stop at
nothing to right their supposed wrongs?
The majority has said, "No crop in 1."
What will you doT Bow your seeds and
begin a year of torment, for it will be 9o6
daya of h for you, sleepless nights.

Flee from the wrath to come, for If you
plant tobaoco, you are sowing a whirlwind.
Mutterings and mumblings are heard on

In my opinion, trouble will come to you If
you plant a crop in 190.
