NEW YORK , MAI oh 13. Patrick
Egjtu , former treasurer of the Iriah
land league , arrived to-day. Asked
the name of the vessel on which ho
arrived und the port from whlcn ho
sailed , he asked to ba excused answer
ing , as to do so would give a clue to
private matters. E au says the pub
lications hero respecting his escape
from Dublin are dutlruly without
Egan , in answer to questions , said :
"Tan chief purpose of my visit is
commercial. I nave been long wantIng -
Ing to visit Chicago , St. Louis , St.
Paul and olhor large oxporttug centers
in connection with the business of my
firm in Dublin , as wo deal largely in
American flour , and my decision to
come here was hastened by the urgent
request of Sheridan that I should
give evidence in the extradition pro
ceedings pending , and also by strong
letters from Mounev , president of the
American land league , and. other
friends , who pressed me to come to
America to give the' leaders of the
movement hero such information as is
in my power regarding the sltuatlou
at homo. Although at this moment
the national cause is surrounded by
some difficulties , the prospect is
I have always held , with John
Mitchell , that the more England is
obliged to coerce us , the more tightly
she is obliged to put on the screws ,
the sooner will we attain our Indopon
doncj. The brutality practiced the
last oonplo of years by tha liberals , or ,
as O'Oounell truly Oillod them , 'base ,
bloody and brutal whigs'haa widened
the gulf between Eagland and Ireland -
land a hundred fold.I am firmly con
vinced that the present atateof things
must result before long in the attain
ncryt by-tl.e . IrSibrpnop'0''ofi rome
measure of national self-government
As a matter of coarse the government
would be wanting in its duty If it did
not do everythlt g possible to breakup
and convict its members , provided it
acted fairly and squarely , bnt the
whole course adopted towards the men
under arrest has been , to my mind ,
simply atrocloua. They arrested a
> number of men whom they believed
to belong to the Fonlan organization
and marched them into the castle
yards before windows behind which
were a number of wretched paople
who were thus able to arrange tholr
identifications and tholr stories. The
prisoners have boon kept ia close con
finement without an opportunity of
communicating with tholr families or
J arranging defense Every means has
boon used to spread terror. The re
sult is the defense has been a mera
scramble , provided in seine cases by
private subscriptions and In others by
money scraped np by their unfortn
nate relations. It la currently ru
mored in Dublin that a certain magis
trate who took an aotlvo part in the
investigations will receive 20,000
pounds and a governorship of a colony
of his labors secure ten convictions.
Not a penny of the land league money
was ever oupplled for the purpose of
conspiracy. On the contrary , the
money was expended in
to the extent of sending mon to lo
calities where there might bo danger
of attempts against landlords. Amongat
thoao who owe their preservation to
the Lind , League is Lord Aidilann ,
formerly Sir Arthur Guinnosi. But
for Its protection hn would have fallen
a victim to his harshly treated ten
ants. The game of the castle officials
is to connect tha Land League with
the commission of outrages , and thus
damage the national party. I am in
formed loading c itt" officials said
they would apond 50,000 to hang
Eaan. "
Egan Bays : "In capital cues the pris
oner has twenty challenges , the
crown an unlimited Bright of chal

his twenty , and as each Catholic ,
Liberal Presbyterian , Methodist or
Quaker la called , the crown orders
him to stand aside , and by this procosi

a jury of thh kind , a prosocntlnp

in the commons that Sheridan wa
constantly going back and forth fron
mo in Paris to the outrage mongers ii
the west of Ireland. As a matter o
fact Sheridan loft Ireland fo
Paris in October , 1881 , and haa
only returned there once since.
That visit was made In
Dojombcr , 1881 , when ho was , of
ojurse , disguised , as a warrant for his
arrest had been issued. Ills object
then wai to investigate and harmonlza
certain alleged dlfllaultios in connec
tion with the ladies' laud league. I
then gave him 100 , half of whioh
ho gave to Rev. Mr. Linter , of
Valencia , for the relief if evicted
tenants ia great need. Ho also gave
other sums to evicted tenants , and
gave the vouchers for nil expendi
tures. In April , 1881 , Richard Pig-
gott wrote mo ho had boon offered
by the castle officials to publish n
statement in his paper , The Irishman ,
alleging misappropriation of land
Ictguo funds. He Enid ho needed
mutiny and threatened to accept the
oiler nnlees I sant him 300. Of
ctiuras I refused and defied him to do

printed should bo burned and the

Florence Dlxlo are these then made
in thn pamphlet. Of course they are
utterly false. My accounts have been
by John Dillon , Rev. Father Sheohoy
and Matthew Harris. No complaints
have ever baou made by actual sub-
sjrlbors to the Laud League fund.
The balance of the fund on hand at
the time of the national conference in
Dublin , in October last , was 31,900.
Cho sum was increased by some small
amounts received afterwards , and ont
of it there have boon sent to the lord
mayor of Dublin , for the Mansion
House committee , for the relief of
evicted tenants , 4,000. There has
been expended by the commlttoo com
posed of Parnoll , John Dillon and
Arthur O'Connor 2,500 for the relief
if evicted tenants. Some other small
.mounts have also been expended ,
"here are now on hand between 25- ,
00 and 26,000 , all cf which is in-

WASHINGTON , March 13.In a com
munication to the commissioner of

p.tyment of purchase money under the
act of Juno 10th , 1880 , "For the relief

Secretary Teller holdo that whenever

location and wholy falls , the scrip or

general land oilho , may ba returned
for proper location upon cancellation
of former Invalid entry ; but where
the consideration is carried into the

epaymout statutes , In the opinion
f the secretary it IB clear that it must

hey fall within the provisions of the

must be a great number of naturalized
American citizens in Ireland , besides
hose that have rendered themselves
ibnoxtona to the local authorities , and
ho alien clauses of the act may very
irobably strengthen the temptations
f private onmtty to bring false accu

very reason to believe under tbo

int a change of miUatry may take

however , I think injsalf safe In pre

by the British parliament. 1 he care-

comments on the policy that could
have dictated BO extraordinary a
meaanre In a country whose traditional
history in regard to the freedom
of the individual , the security
of the domicile and the right
of every man accused of orlmo to an
mpurtlal trial has formed its crowning
glory , relieve me from the necessity ot
giving you anything moro than general
oral dircctlona r.a to your future con
duct hi connection with CRCCS affecting
American clilz > n3 that may possibly
pome before j on Nnvcrthtlesa I doom
* t proper in the interests of our cltl-
: : nB , mid in compliance with your
own expressed desire to that elfcct ,
o put yon In possession
of the general vlows of the
president on lib recent not
of the British parliament an act which
ho conceives may seriously nfTect a
arge number of cltizena of this re
public. It Is as you jnally observe
the revival of the lion act aa a part of
the crimes act that most directly con
cerns ua , and it la the feature of the
measure which has caused the presi
dent to feel Borne auxiety as to its
possible ofTccta on the bnsineea and
social relations of American citizens ,
particularly those of Irish birth
Many Irish-American citlzoua have
parents , brothers end slaters , residents
In Ireland , and whenever they
earn their destitution , as the
most effective mode of relief they send
a member of the family to Ireland
with moans of aid. The possibility
that persona In pursuit of their lawful
business enterprises or on tholr mis
sion of benevolence should come under
the operation of the proceedings con
templated by the provisions of the
now law Is much to bo deprecated.
Opportunities for this kind of
annoyance which the act affords ,
for the gratiGcation of private
enmity , aa you justly remark , in
creases the ground of thla apprehen
sion , and when to this IB added the
anporderviceablo zaal of local ofii-
cors , It la hardly to bo ex
pected that an Irish-American
citizen , however Innocent ho might be
In ( ho act and intention , should con-
sldor his person or property safe In
that country. Ilia private , althougb
temporary , abode may bo forcibly vls <
ited by night or day his papers and hit
valuables may bo taken trom him and
subjected to search , and ho may bi
ordered out of the country at will
with the ( stigma cf guilt upon him am
without having had on opportunity foi
heating or trial. The President rnoro
ovjfeannot contemplate the enforce
meat of this measure on moro ana
plclons against an American clll
zan without foari of Ha hav
ing an unhapp > influence tin
gjod feeling nhlch exists between thi
two great nations of common orlglt
and common language. 1 need scarcely
coly add that thla government haa ni
sympathy with the motive or method
of that cloas of indiscreet Individual
Insignificant In this country , whoso il
directed zeal can neither servo th
CRUBO of Ireland nor reflect credit 01
the country of tholr adoption. The
law ixSldlnp , poaonablo'Amerlcim oltl-
nons of Irian bitth should not bo
exposed to suffer on tholr account.
The president looking only to the
Interests of American oitlzana
has deemed it proper that
those suggestions bo transmitted
to you In view of any fotnro contin
gency. It would bo dlflioult In the
absence of any actual case to glvo you
any moro spoolGo lustrcctlons. Much
most bo loft to your own judgment.
Oases may arise when it will bs nocca
sary for you to act at onoo without
consulting the doparbmant. In suoh
ases the president trusts to your dls-
rotion. You will of course keep the
apartment Inf rmed of whatever stops

pt two families. The balance of the

'amlllos $100. They refused unless
ho balanoo cf the Inhabitants shared
the benefit. The mayor therefore
warded them $300 , which will bo

families deserved equally gonor-
us treatment. At Shawuoetown the

nnounced , Many of the houses
ore removed from tholr foundations

At Wcston $100 was left. At

people there who have little or no
means ot sustenance , and much dls-
TOSS prevails ; 850 loft hero. Now
Liberty was the last town relieved.
The mayor gave $300 to apply to the
needy. All along the route the mayor

credit for. This morning while vlslt-
ng Iloso's Art Emporium wo were
ihown some oil paintings executed by
Mr. J. K. O'Neal , an artlot perma
nently located In our city. By yean
of study and practice ho has acquired
this art and the work exhibited at
Iloao's Emporium will show , especially
the largo painting of "Moor's Like , "
Utah , "The Ice Burgs , " "Orchard
Like , " and "On the Ohio. " Those
named have all been purchased by the
Hon. John F. Coots , the court house
contractor , who has certainly good
taste and a correct eye.
"Christ Stilling the Tempest" is an
other striking painting , which caught
our gaza with Its brilliancy and splen
dor , and ou inquiry the reporter was
told that it was executed by one of
Mr. O'Neal's pupils , who has moro
than ordinary talent , as the light and
shade show in this picture.
Mr. . O'Neal , wo understand , makes
a specialty of portraits in oil crayon
and water colors , which wo should all
remember and glvo him Q trial when
wo want anything In this lice.
