Transcript FIELDEN, NEEBE AND SCHWAB. 147 shown h °?n8piracy is not believed by the then chief of police, as will be that i lni!-^' and [t iB n0t entitled t0 serious notice, in view of the fact the 1 k f g° had nearlv a million inhabitants, the meetings held on fiftv ? 6 °D SundayB duri&g the summer, by these agitators, rarely had the> ° H Pre8ent' and the most of these went from mere curiosity, while me fm ,ng8 held indoors, during the winter, were still smaller. The not h^8 fr°m Ume t0 time by the maeee8 of the laboring people, must De confounded with the meetings above named, although in times of tc.tement and trouble much violent talk was indulged in bv irresponsible parties; which was forgotten when the excitement was over. Again, it is shown here that the bomb was, in all probability, thrown by someone seeking personal revenge; that a course had been pursued by the t t!°ntJfB which would naturally cause this; that for a number of years prior o the Haymarket affair there had been labor troubles, and in several cases a num ,er of laboring people, guilty of no offense, had been shot down in cold ood by Pinkerton men, and none of the murderers were brought to justice. ie evidence taken at coroners' inquests and presented here, shows that in at east two cases men were fired on and killed when they were running away, ami there was consequently no occasion to shoot, yet nobody was punished; tnat. in Chicago there had been a number of strikes in which some of the police not only took sides against the men, but without any authority of law invaded and broke up peaceable meetings, and in scores of cases brutally clubbed People who were guilty of no offense whatever. Reference is made to the opinion of the late Judge McAllister, in the case of the Harmonia Association >f Joiners against Brenan, et al., reported in the Chicago Legal News. Among other things, Judge McAllister says: The facts established by a large number of witnesees, and without any opposing evidence, are, that this society, having leased Turner Hall, on West lwelfth street, for the purpose, held a meeting in the forenoon of said dav, in said hall, composed of from 200 to 300 individuals, most of whom were journeymen cabinet-makers engaged in the several branches of the manufacture of furniture in Chicago, but some of those in attendance were the proprietors m that business, or the delegates sent by them. The object of the meeting was to obtain a conference of the journeymen with such proprietors, or their authorized delegates, with the view of endeavoring to secure an increase of the price or diminution of the hours of labor. The attendants were wholly unarmed, and the meeting was perfectly peaceable and orderly, and while the people were sitting quietly, with their backs toward the entrance hall, with a few persons on the stage in front of them, and all engaged merely in the business for which they had assembled, a force of from fifteen to twenty policemen came suddenly into the hall, having a policeman's club in one band and a revolver in the other, and making no pause to determine the actual character of the meeting, they immediately shouted: ' Get out of here, you damned sons-of-bitches,' and began beating the people with their clubs, and some of them actually firing their revolvers. One young man was shot through the back of the head and killed. But to complete the atrocity of the affair on the part uf the officers engaged in it, when the people hastened to make their escape fiom the assembly room, they found policemen stationed on either side
