Chicago. 111., Nov. l‘J, - Tbe doors of

Indies of the dead Anarchists were taken
!.‘!er the execution yesterday, were thrown
fi ■*>!) at 6 o’clock this morning, and a crowd
v hiob had been waiting began to file in.
Only the bodies of Parsons and Fischer
w?r' left to gratify the morbid curiosity of
1 lie crowd, the remains of Bpies and Eu
pd having already been removed. Occas
ionally one of the curious would mutter
something as he gazed upon the upturned
distorted faces of the dead, but most of the
people passed on silently after a single glance
at the countenances of these much talked of
men. At 9:30 the doors were closed. At
that time there was a big crowd outside arid
it was estimated that 4,000 or 5.000 people
had view ed the remains. Half an hour later
the bodies were removed to the residences
of the dead Anarchists. Mu excitement at
tended the transfer of the remains.
Guarding against funeral riots.
It looted very much this morning as if the
i-irv authorities would refuse to allow the
friends of the executed Anarchists to carry
i at their programme respecting the funer
als. which were set for to-morrow. It was
learned that Mayor Roche, Chief of Police
Ebersold, Inspector BontieM and Commis
sioner of Public Works Swift had hud a
long conference respecting what they would
or would not allow. The Chief and Mayor
v ere both set against permitting crowds to
Fie the streets through which the cortege
pronos&d passing, and it looked as if it
might be decided that the burials of the
"Reds” would have to be made separate.
A HALF MAST FLAG ORDERED DOWN.
An incident occurred this morning which
•bowed the temper of the law-abiding peo
ple of the city. Spies was a memiier of the
Aurora Turn Vereim Some Socialistic
members of the organization placed the
American flag at half mast on the Aurora
Turn Hails. It had not been there long be
fore the owners of the building ordered the
flag taken down, and it was done.
ft was strongly hinted this morning that
she authorities of the Waldehe.m Ceme
tery, the one in which it proposed to bury
!, “Reds,” and over their
graves erect a monument, were seriously
considering whether it was not their duty
to refuse a resti.ig place for the Auarcliists’
remains within their inclosure. At least
they will not allow a monument to be
ejected. Both owners of the Aurora Turn
Haile, it may be interesting to know, are
It was also learned that the Turn Halle
would mo t likely refuse to allow the body
cf Spies to lie In state in the Halle as was
FISCHER’S BODY TAKEN HOME.
At 10 o’clock the casket containing the
body of Fischer was taken out. It was to
K e taken to the home of his wife. It was
quickly lifted into a wagon and an oil cloth
revering spread over it. The undertaker
fuid his assistants mounted the box and the
wagon was driven out Milwaukee aveuue,
followed by a, crowd of small boys, most of
the grown "people staying behind iu the hope
■if getting a glance at Parsons. A detail of
voice just. going on duty came along at the
t .me and marched al tar the wagon. This
taxed some commotion along the avenue,
but if died out w hen the police turned olf at
Noble street. The wagon, with its guard of
boys, moved on to the house of Mrs.
Fischer, just a block east of Milwaukee ava
vie It is a two-story frame structure and
occupied by several families. Mrs. Fischer's
apartments are in the rear on the ground
floor and are entered through an areh under
the rear stairway leading from the second
story. This areh was draped with white
aud black cambric. Around the bouse was
a great crowd of women and children, evi
dently belonging in the neighborhood.
They were morbidly curious rather than
sympathetic, and when the wagou
drew up in front of the house they
■'! sued their necks to see * whar
they could. Mrs. Fischer was at
the house of one of her neighbors when the
body of her husband arrived,but as soon as
tt had been carried into the house and
properly placed she was escorted into her
desolate home by two female friends. She
was suffering greatly and her actions were
•omewhat hysterical. She stopped occa
sionally, threw her arms nbout'one or the
ether of her friends and wept bitterly. At

TO BE A GREAT FUNERAL.
It has bsen determined to make tldß the
great st funeral ever held in Chicago if the
authorities do not prevent. Plaster casts
will be taken of the faces of the dead An
archists, except that of Lingg. The ques
tion of the primary disposal of the (had
Anarchists was settled (his afternoon. They
will he taken to Waldebeim cemetery
and plaoed in a vault for the time
being. The committee represented to
the directors of the cemetery that,
the vault in the Waldeheim cemetery
being recently constructed on improved
principles was the st rongest of any ceme
tery vault near Chicago. Mr. Stanber de
clared to the directors that it was feared by
the families of the Anarchists that a deter
mined effort would bo made by physicians
to get possession of the remains for dissec
tion. and they wanted them well protected.
At last the directors agreed to allow the
bod it s to he placed in the vault, but reserved
their decision a* to whether they would sell
to the committee a plat of ground in which
to bury the remains.
Chicago, Nov. 13, It p. m.—Without ban*
ners. without speeches, with no music save
dirges, the blackening, repulsive remains of
the five Havmarket who perished
i>y rope and bomb, will to-morrow be borne
to a lonely tomb ten miles out from the city
of their fearful crime and death.
Mayor Roche to-day sent for
the Committee of Arrangements for
the funeral of the men executed Friday,
and had a long interview with them. Ordi
narily no penult is necessary for a funeral,
but owing to tbo circumstances of this case
the Mayor deemed it best for the city to as
sume general oversight of the whole affair. 1
The committee suggested that sufficient
police should be around to clear a way and
preserve order, and readily acquiesed in all
the suggestions made by the Mayor.
A PETITION TO THE MAYOR.

AN ANARCHIST WAKE.
Police Broke Up the Meetinsr Before
it Got Under Way.
New York, Nor. PA—The New York
brethren of the executed Chicago Anarch
ists held various meetings in their private
halls to-night to let out, their pent up wrath
over the death of their friends. One of the
meetings was to have taken place in Fior
ence Hall, on Second avenue. Cabinet
makers Union No. 1 had encaged the hall for
the ostensible purpose' of a ball. Early in
the evening the true character of the pro
gramme became plain when a committee
arrived with live plain coffins and proceeded
to decorate the hall as for a funeral. They
were to hold a ako over representations of
the biers of the bodies which lav in Chicago.
The owners of the hall became alarmed and
notified the police He had let the hall for
a ball and was unwilling to have it used for
the purpose now intended. Cant. MeCul
lagb soon appeared on the scene
with fifty officers, retaining a reserve at the
station bouse uear at hand to be used in
case of an t niergenrv. lie stopped the ar
rangements suimnarjly. A crowd of 200
men, women and children crowded around
the cutranee of the hall and clamored for
adnvttance. They be-arae noisy and
abusive. The Captain found it necessary
to knock one Anarchist down, whou be pro
tested too violently against the alleged
outrage. The officer finally was
obliged to move his force upon
the crowd mid disperse it, and midst the
curses and violent expressions of tho “wake
holders,” the coffins wore seined by the
jHjliee, and safely deposited in tho s’tatiou
house. No arrests were made.
JIKRU MOST AT A MEETING.
Over 300 hundred Anarchists met in a
hall back of a saloon on Seventh street. Herr
Most was the drawing card. When that
disciple of the faith arrived, he was greet.si
with loud cheers, ami led to the platform
by his admirers. The subject of Herr
Mosf.s harangue was. Tho judi
cial murder of our Anarchist friends
He opened in a low tone of voice but
gradually warmed up with his subject, and
bit face fi came rodder and redder, and bis
voice ascended into a howl. Some of the
choicest expressions and ideas advanced
were these, lie began:

IN THE CANCER’S CI.I’TCH
TERRIBLE FATE OF THE GERMAN
Doctors Divided as to tho Beat Method
of Treating the Growth in the Present
Case—German Opinion Inclined to
Turn Against Dr. Mackenzie.
[Copyright 1887 by Xew York Ateociated Press.]
Berlin, Nov. 13. —The first whispers of
the dire uews from Butt Kemo were unheard
in Berlin till toward evening. On tbo
Bourse business was over. Some evening
papers had congratulatory articles on the
improving prospects of the Crown Prince,
when suddenly semi-official reports were
permitted to transpire that, yester
day evening's advices wore false
news. These reports created gen
eral consternation. Early announcements
were vaguely put to the effect that the dis
ease bad been found to bo of a cancerous
nature, and that with regard to the further
treatment of tho Crown Prince no trust
worthy information would be obtainable
until a verbal report was received from Dr.
Schmidt, who went to San Remo at the
command of the Emperor. Nothing was
said about the chances of recovery or the
condition of the patient, but the official ad
mission was enough to confirm the worst
fears in the public mind oouoeniing the
Crown Prince's fate.
THE TRUTH LEA KINO OCT.
Later it became known that Prof. Berg
mann had not lectured at the university,
King engaged in consultation on the expe
diency of performing another operation;
that Drs Scnroter and Kraus were in favor
of immediate tracheotomy, while i)rs.
Hcbretzer aud Mackenzie were opposed to it.
At the last decisive examination made yes
terday, which resulted in the doctors unani
mously declaring that a radical cure
was irniiossiblo, the only difference of
opinion being as to how ioug the Crown
Prince s life eottl i be prolonged, the Crown
Prince heard part of tue discussion between
the doctors. He showed the greatest self
possession when told that his recovery was
very uncertain, and retired to meet the
Princess. He afterward sent a long dis
patch to tho Emperor, and then, recalling
the doctors, he told them that he placed
himself in their hands. Dr. Mackenzie
communicated the result of the examination
to Prince William, who seemed to be more
affected bv the dreadful news than his
father had been. Dr. Schmidt, who will
personally read the report of the doctors
to the Emperor to-morrow, shares Dr.
Mackenzie’s opposition to an immediate
operation. His relations with the Emperor,
therefore, will undoubtedly influence the
family decision. Prince William returns to
methods of treatment.
The confirmation of the statement that
the Crown Prince is afflicted with cancer
has revived interest in the methods at
tempted for the extirpation of the disease.
The National Zeitwnff in so article hearing
the stamp of authority says: “Deepit# the
malignant nature of the cancer the larynx
operation is now frequently successful, ’l'he
most famous German opera lore ctre Dr.
Hahn, of the Friedricbsham Hospital, Ber
lin, and Dr. Bergmaun, who recently per
formed five operation*, and in every ease
the patient rapidly recovered. Evou extir
pation of the whole of the larynx
can lie done with complete success. A
gentleman named Prieuer, residing in
Prague, has sent letters to the newspapers
Mating that Prof. Gussenbauin, of Hoidlo
berg, removed the whole of his larynx in
IXBO. Binoe i hen he has enjoyed excellent
health. Whatever is done with the Crown
Prince the feeling in the highest quaiter is
against further reliance upon Dr. Mac
GERMAN SPECIALISTS SLIGHTED.
“It will be an unavailing and poignant
source of regret to all Germany that while
German specialists diagnosed the cancer
ous character of the growth at the outset of
the Prince's illness, treatment of the case
was committed to Dr. Mackenzie. The
opinion of Profs. Tobold, Fraenkel and
others, published in the spring, are re
call's! B.s a proof of the accuracy of the
German specialists. Prof. To bold’s written
opinion is now of historic interest. He de
clared that the removal of the first,
growth from the Crown Prince’s throat
with the forceps, by Dr. Mackenzie’s
method provoked a vigorous recurrence
of the tumor. After tbo fourth conulta
lion of the Crown Prince’s ease Prof.
Tabold wrote: ‘I bold that the quite dan
gerless process of laryngo fissure is the
fittest mode of completely doing away with
the growth, enabling sureneaa and absolute
exactness in the examination of the diseased
pari and the destruction of the seeds of
further growth by cauterization.’ ”
The only eminent defender of Dr. Mac
kenzie iR Prof. Vertel, of Munich.
He maintains that Dr. Mackenzie did not
select the wrong treatment, that he con
tinued that begun under Dr*. Bergmaun and
Gerhardt, and that an operation in the
spring would have been utterly useless.
A SUMMARY or THE OPINIONS.
The following semi-official summary of
the opinion* of the physicist!* in attendance
at San Remo is issued to-night:
Dr. Sell rotor bolds that the new growth
below the vocal chords is cancerous, and
advises complete cutting out of the whole
larynx, He claims that an immediate
operation svould bo very advantageous, but
says be would consent to a no*t,,o.nemeut,
as in the meantime the malady can be con
trolled by tracheotomy.
Dr. Schi-otor is <smvineed that the life of
the Crown lTinoe might bo preserved by
total excisiou of the larynx. Although the
operation is very dangerous and its effect
uncertain, it might be attended with good
results. An excision from the windpijie, ho
maintains, would only defer death n few
Dr. Kraus states that the uew swelling
prevents him from expressing a decisive
opinion. The affection appears to be can
cerous. t ut Ire opposes complete excision of
the larynx, and advise* tracheotomy.
Dr. Mackenzie considers the growth to ba
cancerous and advisee that a small piece of
Jt be extracted for subtnis' ton to nnnlysl*

tiual decision of tho physcians should be

How It is Protected Against Relic-
From the .Veto York Quit
Washington, Nov. o. —The watchman at
the Washington Monument estimates that
the average number of people visiting the
structure daily is "00, uearly 110,000 visitors
a year, and yet nothing but the outside of the
shaft can be seen. For a year or so after
the monument was finished every one who
came armed with a pass was allowed to
climb the iron stairs and gaze at, Washing
ton city from n height of something over
600 feet, aliout fifty feet from Lhe apex.
This custom was nee asariiy abandoned, as
most of the Right-seers were relic-huntors
who began to carry the monument
away with them piece by piece. Con
gress, at its last session, appropri
ated mouey for the construction of
an elevator to carry the passengers to the
toj). It neglected, however, to appropriate
any money to run the elevator with, and so
it stands "to-duy unused and Immovable.
Money was also provided for electric light
appliances, but nono for furnishing the
light. Therefore the inside of the monu
ment is os dark as a pocket. The visitors
who were foitneiiy allowed to climb the
stairs were provided with candles at the
bottom and loft to their own guidance.
There ti a watchman at the foot of the
stairs, but none at the top or on any of the
landings. Therefore the vandal* worked
unmolested. They have chipped off the
corners of the monument on the out
side from the ground up to a point
a j high as a man can reach, and in
the inside many of (tie finest atones ore
sen ted by foreign countries, and tins several
Klates biive (hh-ii defaced. This is why no
more persons will tic allowed inside the
monument until Congress provides the
ncee.-sary money for ruuning the elevator,
furnishing lights at different (Kiinis along
the stairways and employing watchmen to

SOME lIJING AB UT O .--EWING GUM
Gaa Fixture# and Crowing Novel ties In
Connection With Them.
New York, Nov. 12, —I entered a car the
other day oceuped by four pretty, stylishly
dressed girls, who did nothing but laugh,
chatter and. oh, horror 1 chew gum! If
there i* anyth*, g vulgar It is this habit,
w-hich juft now seems to be the rage with a
certain class. I was amazed to see *ueh
ladylike-looking girls showing this habit
There is one thing that ought to prevent
gil ls from doing this, and that is their van
lty, for it is far from becoming, this ever
lasting chewing that seems to make one’s
iswn atc.be just (o watch these chewer*. I
have notic'd chewing gnm offered for sale
at the elevated tuitions, #o I asked the boy
if be sold much of it. “Yes, indued,” lie
replied, “boxes and boxes of it.” “Who
buys it!” I asked. “Oh, all the pretty young
ladies and some old onee. They chew it as
a cure for indigestion,” “Does it cure
themf” I asked, “They think it doe*,” he
answered. Later I made further inquiries
from one who ’•nows, and ascertained that
there are seve. J factories manufacturing
chewing gum, and the man who advertises
extensively is making a fortune, which
proves somebody buys it. At n ▼ druggist’s
I mw a placard, “Heal old and wn £ ist sp u e
gum." "Who buys it?* I said. “Oh, every
body ; people you wouldn’t dream of that
wouldn’t bo seen chow mg it in pub! o. They
use it for promoting digestion, and the pure
spruce gum does it, ana it whitens the teeth.
Even men chew it after smoking. I is tie
best, thing in the world to remove the wor
of whisky or onion*” I became imbue*
with the fact that ail the w-orld were aceu*
turned to chew gum, privately, ;f not in
public. Nevertheless, it Is a vulgar habit
und ono our young girls had insst avoid.
There las been little n6tv in the way of
pas fixtures for a long time, but the other
day I saw something extremely novel and
beautiful Apparently a palm tree about
four feet high stood in a mass flower pot.
which ax placed- in a corner of the room.
There was a gas pipe beneath that could not
bo seen. IN' hen the gas was turned on from
under every leaf ana point glmmjerod asoft
light, small hut of great brilliancy. Hose
In,dies are nimilarly arranged; they are not
so expensive as Koran might suppose; no
more so than the fancy lamp* now in vogue.
A v ery pretty decoration for the side of a
mirror is a honeysuckle vine that clam
bers away over the tpp, drooping upon the
other side. When the gas is turned on a
tiny light shines from the centre of each
flower. The leaves and stalks of these plant*
are made of Iron, so artistically enameiod
sk to be easily ml* aken for real plants until
closely inspected. A pretty girl friend of
mine was making the other day what I sup
posed was the skirts of dolls’ dresser. “Dreas
mg dolls fora fain" I asked. “No.”she
replied. “I aw maaiug covers for the gas
shade*,” The advantage is that in this uay
one cau have different oolortd shades when
ever she pleases. They were made of a
straight pieoe of thinnest China silk, a*
quarter or a yard wid“ and half a yard long.
After being sewed together there waa aheui

was ruu; in this way they would fit any
shaped or sized globe, anti the elastic also
served to lu ’p them 1 place. My friend
had a set of ytilow, blue, pale ero. a, and
those she was making were pink. When
placed upon the globe and the gaa turned on
the effect was a soft colored light, very
pretty to look at and vary becoming.
