Tanner then invited an action in the courts by the newspaper publishers for damages. He was confident that he was amenable to the criminal law for libelous language, and invited prosecution. Metropolitan Journals Anarchy-Breeders. He asserted that a failure on the part of the publishers to bring an action against him would convict them of ali the charges: he had made. That there might be no trouble as to bringing the suit he called one of the editors he denounced by name. "The newspaper trust is an anarchy breeder." said he. "It invades the penitentiaries and drags out stories to use against honest men. It complains of unequal taxation, but pays a loiver proportion of taxes than any other institution. It lowers the standard of public morals. By its unfair ways it has lost its power for public good entirely. It is proverbial that nobody believes any longer what he sees in these papers. There is no greater menace to the public welfare than the tone of this venal newspaper trust." Says the Papers Are for Sale. The governor charged the newspaper publishers with all kinds of corrupt motives. The newspapers were for sale, he claimed, for any consideration that might be offered. The fact had become so notorious that every promoter of » public enterprise knew that the first step toward success for his scheme was to obtain the support of the newspapers. Referring to attacks made upon him in connection with west side park board affairs, he said: "Up to the time of the removal of Mr. Medill's Democratic friends on the west side The Tribune had been friendly to me and to my administration. Immediately upon their removal It published a two-column article virulently attacking- my administration and myself personally. Ffom then until now it has pursued me. Attack on Legislative Honor, "When the Allen bill was pending, and upon its third reading in the house. The Tribune announced that Mr. Yerkes was reported to be paying $1,500 each for votes for that measure. It doubted whether the bill would pass, but expressed the opinion that if it did the governor would veto it, because, should he sign it, the public would begin to figure out the value of his signature, on the basis of $1.500 apiece to 204 senators and representatives {the total numbert. on the theory that his name would be worth more to Mr. Yerkes than all the votes cast for the bill put together. • « « This particular bill passed by a majority of nearly two- thirds in each of the two houses. Of the senators and representatives from Chicago more than three-fourths voted nigh o"rnce which it is" pretended I havi disgraced." Governor Tanner then referred to the hisses for him on the streets the day o fhe dedication of the Logan monument saying: "The Chicago Tribune an nounced in advance that if the governor of Illinois should appear In a procession upon the streets of Chicago he would oe publicly hissed, and that should be venture to say a word upon the plat form or rostrum he would be howle< from the platform. You, gentlemen were present. You know precisely wha: occurred. I believe that there were tome hisses, though they did not reach my ear. » • « B u t i know, and you know, and The Tribune knew, when it prepared and printed the lying account of my reception upon the streets of Chicago, which appeared the next morning In its columns, that it wtts a lie. • " "Later, when my visit to the Nashville exposition was given up * * The Tribune, although I had done nothing but what other governors of other states had done, against whom nothing was said by way of reproach to the. newspapers of their states, undertook to brand me as a coward and afraid of yellow fever—the last charge which I had supposed would ever be brought against me—and as a liar, who bad misrepresented the feelings of the itaff. To support this falsehood!! sought ay an Ingeniously worded telegram to the members of my official family to secure from them replies which could be distorted 20 as to appear like a con- irmation of its mean and contemptible nsinuation. • .«- ».. »..*»• ••Finally when absent in the west this same Tribune wired to various persona on the train and at the railway stations, saying that it was reported In Ihicago that Governor Tanner's trip was for the purpose of poker-playing; that my party (which included my wife and the wives of every other gentleman who accompanied me) was playing for high stakes, and that I was a heavy loser. 'Investigate thoroughly and wire the facts.' To a newspaper reporter in Deadwood it telegraphed: 'Get all the facts; see porters on the car and write up a good story for The Tribune.' " SUFFOCATED IN A COAL MINE. Slope Catches Fire and Smoke Fill* the- Workings—Yom:wki's Escape, Scranton, Pa., Nov. 1.—The most fatal mine disaster in the Lackawanna. or Wyoming', coal fields since, the Twin Shaft horror at Pittston over a year ago was developed in the fire which gutted the River Slope of the Delaware and Hudson company's Von Storch mine in this city Saturday. Six men were suffocated by smoke, and one other, a Polander, was numbered among the dead far awhile. The dead are: Thomas Hill, boss; John Farrell, company man; John Francis Moran, driver; Michael Walsh, laborer; John McDonnell, miner; ThomasPadden. The missing men were at work in, the deck and surface veins, i:he former 100 and the latter sixty feet from the surface. They had but .two avenues of escape. The shorter route was by way of the slope, which was a sea of flames, and the other route was via cross-cuts to gangways which lead to an air shaft nearly it mile Trom the spot where the men were working. Fire kept them out of the slope, and the smoke which backed into all the workings prevented escape through the cross-cuts. Miners and city firemen in their efforts to fight the fire in the slope were handicapped by several extensive falls of roof, caused by the burning of the timbers, and by the fea.r :>f forcing the air current downward instead of upward. The workers wet threatened by falls of roof and the squeezing-" of the walls. Chief Hickey. of the Scranton fire department, and eight firemen narrowly escaped death. They were driving- the .smoke before :hem by the use of water from a big ^pray nozzle when the air current was 'hanged at the shaft a.nd the smoke nveloped the party. They groped their v-ay 200 feet to the opening and col- apsed in the open air. Joseph Yomaski, one of the men en- ombed in the mine, was rescued at 10 'clock Saturday night. The bodies o£ he other men were afterwards four.d nd brought to the surface. The Pole n an interview explained that when his omoanions began to suffer their death ijies he at once urged them to fol- ow him, but they refused. He ei;- aped to an old air-way where he knew f a hand fan, over which he placed a box and in that inserted his head. He then kept the fan going for ten hours and kept himself alive until rescued. GREAT CITY Extraordinary Honors Paid to the Memory of the Single Tax Leader. NEVEE STTEPASSED EXCEPT ONCE, And Tout TVa* When the Natfon Mourned for the "Old Commander"—Remembered Only as "a .Man Wlio So Loved the Peopl» That He Gav« Hi* Life for Them"—Eulogies ou the Dead Heard All Over Uie Metropolis of the Kit-it, New York, Xov. 1.—A mourning uty, a grief-stricken people, yesterday showed honor to the man who had fallen in the battle for what he believed to be (.he right. Henry George, apostle of ihs single-tax, leader of the New Jeffersonian Democracy, stricken on the eve of election, was honored as no private citizen of America was ever honored before. Public griefs have been many in me great metropolis of the weswrn hemisphere; many have been sincerely mourned, but none—save he who went to eternal rest after having- served his people as a leader of soldiers and as chief executive of the land—hod laid at his bier such evidences cf public I'rief, widespread sorrow and sincere mourning as wag laid at the bier of Henry George. No one would permit a eminder that he had been a candidate or public office and had been carrying n a bitter warfare on those he believed were enemies of the public -weal; no one ecalled the strong words of deauncia- ion that; fell from his lips while on he political rostrum; he was remem- iffed only as a man who so loved the eople that he gave his life for them. Whole I>».v Devoted to Sorrow. From daylight to far into • the night he outward manifestation of grief last- d; thousands gazed upon the familiar, elovecl features, cold in death, yet railing serenely as in sleep; other housands- heard stirring orations—mag- ificent eulogies upon the dead. In every temple of God, wherever men gathered to worship or gathered to hear lectures and philosophy taught, garlands of praise were bestowed upon the memory of the revered dead.

For Sale at Ben Tells Tlifm They Should Xot Elect Councils They Ware Not Trust, The governor then said that if the Allen bill hurt Chicago it would be because ot" a venal council elected by the citizens of Chicago. If Chicago citizens elected a council "which They dare not trust, it is useless for the people of this great and magnificent citjj to run down to Springfield and appeal to the legislature and the governor to save them from the results of their own indifference to their own interests. » » « Let us have home rule, let consequences be what they may. This is a fundamental principle of democratic institutions and of republican government. This is what the newspaper trust clamored for, and this is what the general assembly has given them. » « « "It [the "newspaper trust"] insinuated that my signature to the Allen bill was procured by bribery, a charge which I disdained to notice.

The liabilities are given as JSOO,- 000, and the assets, at $4,000.000. The company's plants in which are employed 1,200 people will be operated without interruption. Bidnt KUl Enough for Acquittal, Waterto-wn, N. Y., Nov. L—Edward G. Hatnes, alias George Allen, who w'nile a soldier in the Ninth infantry at Madison barracks in April last killed Mary Crouch and Mary Daly, has been found guiity of murder in the second decree. Christians, Roman Catholics and Episcopalians—with hearts wrung with pain spoke words which confessedly fell far short of the great waves of emotion that sought to find utterance. Not a dissenting voice was heard to the declaration tl.at'Henry George was a lover of the people, who he believed were being oppressed, and that lie gave his life that humanity might live. Buried at Brooklyn Tliii Morning:. The eulogies uttered, the day gone, the streets became filled with people who wished to see the funeral cortege as it passed in solemn procession down New York's greatest streets, thence across to the Brooklyn city hall. There the public gave over the body to the family, and the casket was taken to tne home in Fort Hamilton, from which it was borne to its final resting place In Greenwood this morning. 1YIXG IN STATJE OF THE BODY. Funeral Services at New York—Addresse* That Were Applauded. New York, Nov. 1.—The body of Henry George lay in state yesterday in the Grand Central palace and 130,000 people reverently passed the casket and looked upon the face of the dead philosopher. From 9 o'clock in the morning till 3 in the afternoon a stream of men, women and children poured into the hall. In the early dawn the body was moved in a plain hearse from Union Square hotel to the Grand Central palace, unattended save by the guards of honor and four policemen. Behind the hearse came a single carriage. Anna George, the youngest daughter, who insisited upon accompanying the body to the Grand Central palace. No persuasion could sway her from her purpose. Weeping bitterly she stood at the head <jf the stairs at the hotel and begged to be permitted to go. Pleadings proving in vain she became importunate and refused to permit the body to be taken away unless she accompanied it, which she finalljr did. The crowd passed by the coffin at the rate of from 1,500 to 6,000 an hour. August Lewis, a prominent slngle-tai- er, wept bitterly as he passed by, and tenderly laid a bunch of violets on the lass. The floral decorations were profuse. A mass of wreathed flowers was sent by the Chicago Single Tax club. it the front of the platform st'XKl a .mst of the fallen leader modeled by his son .Richard. At the foot of the pedestal upon which the bronze rested were numerous iloral tributes, including & cross, from one arm of which hung a wreath. white and pink roses, from Mr. and Mrs. Tom L. Johnson; a wreath of Im- mortelles and pink orchids, from Joseph Pulitzer: roses andchrysanthemums in a wreath, from John C. Milholland. Before 2 o'clock the people were permitted to occupy the seats in the hall. The front six rows ir. ftie main part of the auditorium were reserved for the family, the immediate friends ol tht deceased, the pall-bearers and the ushers. All the rest of the main floor was open to the crowd, and it took but a short time to fill the hall. The platform, of course, was reserved. The pall-bearers were Tom L. Johnson, August Lewis, Andrew McLean, Thomas G-. Shearman. Arthur McEwen. Louis F. Post, Jerome O'Neill and Charlea Frederic Adams. The honorary pallbearers, some of whom sat .on the platform, inciuded Mayor 'William ~L. Strong, of New York, and Mayor Frederick W. Wursier, of Brooklyn. Mayor Strong sat at the center of the platform, and he 'was surrounded by a number of the more distinguished persons present. Behind the mayor sat Sett Low, with Colonel George E. Waring- by his tide. The exercises began with the singing of the hymn "ketuL Kindir Ueht." Not Over 2.50O Men in X.ine, but Enormon* Crowds Along the Bout*. The procession which accompanied the remains to Brooklyn was in many respects the most remarkable ever witnessed in New York. The catafalque was a jnagnificent creation of black broadcloth, end at the base was twelv* feet wide. There were five steps leading to the top. The horses, of jet black, were covered with black silk netting and were led by sixteen grooms. Tim only emblem on- the top of the casket was a small white wreath. The organizations that paid honor to George by following the fiin-ji^i i-ar fell into line from the side snreeis off Madison avenue and below Forty-second street. There was reine disappointment: in the number of followers, and it was conservatively estimated that when the party passed Thirty-fourth street on Madison avenue there were less than 2,500 men in line. There were marks of respect all along the line. Bared heads were the rule on both sides o" the street and many men and women were noticed to be crying. When the open space in front of the hotels in Twenty-third uric! Twenty- fifth streets was reached there was an enormous crowd. There were a number of old men here who seemed to be greatly interested, for they stood with bared heads from the time the polico appeared until nearly all the procession, had passed them. When the south side of Union square was reached the band that had preceded the catafalque u-il out of line and taking a stand on the sidewalk played a dirge- while the remainder of the procession passed. It was S o'clock when the head of the column rounded into Broadway again at .Fourteenth street. An expectant crowd of George worshipers flanked Broadway at Canal street. ETere invajr noticed that there was much weeping. The procession from that point to City Hall park was without incident sxvu for a repetition of the scenes of grief which had been manifested along th» entire route. Mrn, lytivtgert'K Mistiing Brother. Chicago, Nov. 1. — A new sensation developed in the Luetgert case Saturday. Attorney Albert Phalen received the information that Mrs. Louise Luetgert'B missJng brother is now living in the vicinity of Pueblo, Colo., ami could be produced here in Chicago at the second trial of Luelgert. This missing brother of Mrs. Luetgert and of Deltrich Bicknese disappeared twenty-two years ago and had never been heard of since. But through all those years he appears to have been wandering in a partially demented condition around among the ranches in the neighborhood of Pueblo.
