Transcript ADDRESS OF SAMUEI, FIELDEN. (51 Sn^^h™ /lthTT°ne' Wen with de8ire8: men with sentiments as fine perhaps, some of them, as those of some of the most intelligent portions ilr«?T ^ uen being driven t0 the ™»- They will continue to be bow th Z6^ 1S ChaDgf- Wh6n l have to,d y°°- or indi«^. ^ther, fh« hlnlT.h 8 'TnB °f exi8tence have gradually been concentrated into the hands of the smaller quantity and number of the community, it is an indication that po.nts unerringly to a danger. I wish society would avert this. I Zl ,T ,i UP°nr « * 7.itneS8 8taDd that Jt was not P^^nt ^r me to contemplate anything of the kind. It is not a pleasant thing, but in the interest of peace, as I told these people. ,*J*Z i£Z7 hther! SS °ne thiDg I Wi8h t0 8av aboi,t mv °wn particular case, and then I have done. Dynamite has been spoken of here, and it has been charged by Mr. IDgham that all of ug knew ^ violence ^ ^ ^ ^ £..iJlt^ ♦ he didn>t 8ay aa much'St was indicated aa m«<* in that assertion that we were all equally guilty. That may be so. I don't know the extent to which any of the others are guilty. Fischer, Lingg, and Lnge are men that I have not associated with for a year. I knew Fischer; I S irr «Dg8' ^ EngCl l have 8een' but 1«ite a ^"ile before the Haj market affair, and I know at one time he did not belong to our organization-had left it and so had Fischer, and I didn't know thev belonged to it. I could not have been then conspiring with them to do anything in the Haymarket square on the 4th of May. I hadn't seen these other gentlemen since the Sunday prev.ous. I believe I didn't see Mr. Parsons on that Sunday at all and had not seen him for a week before that. I don't know what the ingredients of dynamite are. I had never seen, before I came into this court room, a dynamite bomb. I have never seen any experiments or taken part in any experiments with dynamite in any shape or form. And I never knew- and I only know now, if I may believe the testimony of the detectives in this case-that there was dynamite kept in the Arbeiter-Zeitung building. I say these things not because I believe that I shall he believed-because I know, as I have stated before, that every defendant, almost, asserts his innocence and ,t ,s about all that he can do-and it undoubtedly has been the case that many a man, as guilty as he could possibly be, has said with as much apparent sincerity as I say it today, that he was innocent, and yet was guilty-but I w.sb to say this that if the State's attorney or the authorities of this city should arrest your honor tomorrow for any crime they choose to charge you with they could prove you guilty if they wanted to. That is an advantage that they have. Whether it is intentional-and I am not going to charge anything of the kind a,ainst any man-I know that intentional falsehoods have been stated here, I will charge that where I know it-I will not injure any man s feel.ngs; I will not charge for the sake of saving my life, any man with being a murderer, until I know him to be that; I do not and cannot know having beer, confined the length of time I have, what influences may have been brought to bear upon the State's attorney, that there should have been the evidence brought in here against me which has been, and which I know to oe false-therefore, I will not charge that it was intentional to convict me on his part, but I have suggested here that he can find out manv things if he will look up certain records that I have referred to which will con- ?
