Transcript ' AdLdrofesa ^of* JLouis Lingrg. Court of Justice ! With the same irony with which you have regarded my efforts;to win, in this "free land of America," a livelihood such as humankind is worthy to enjoy, do you now, after condemning me to death, concede me the liberty of making a final speech. I accept your concession; but it is only for the purpose of exposing the injustice, the calumnies, and the outrages which have been heaped upon me. You have accused me of murder, and convicted me: what proof have you brought that I am guilty? In the first place, you have brought this fellow Seliger to testify against me. Him I have helped to make bombs, and you have further proven that with the assistance of another, I took those bombs to No. 58 Clybourne Ave. but what you have not proven—even with the assistance of vour bought "squealer," Seliger, who would appear to have acted such a prominent part in the affair—is that any of those bombs were taken to the Haymarket. A couple of chemists also have been brought here as specialists yet they could only state that the metal of which the Haymarket bomb was made bore a certain resemblance to those bombs of mine, and your Mr. Ingham has vainly endeavored to deny that the bombs were quite different. He had to admit that there was a difference of a full half inch in their diameters although he suppressed the fact that there was also a difference of a quarter of an inch in the thickness of the shell. This is the kind of evidence upon which you have convicted me. It is not murder, however, of which you have convicted me. The judge has stated that much only this morning in his resume of the case and Grin nell has repeatedly aseerted that we were being tried, not for murder but for Anarchy, so that the condemnation is—that I am an Anarchist! What is Anarchy? This is a subject which my comrades have explained with euihcient clearness, and it is unnecessary for me to go over it again. They have told von plainly enough what our aims are. The State's attorney, however has not given you that information. He has merely criticized and condemned not the doctrines of Anarchy, but our methods of giving them practical effect, and even here he has maintained a discreet silence as to the fact that those meth ods were forced upon us by the brutality of the police. Grinnell's own nrof fered remedy for our grievances is the ballot and combination of Trade* it„ ions, and Ingham has even avowed the desirability of a six hour movement' But the fact is that at every attempt to wield the ballot, at every endeavor o combine the efforts of workingmen you have displayed the brutal violence S he police club and this is why I have recommended rude force, to ccTba the ruder force of the police. ' ^^uuiuai You have charged me with despising «law and order." What ,1™. «law and order" amount to? Its representatives are the policet E" have thieves in their ranks. Here sits Captain Schaack.
