LONDON- , August IS , 4 a. m. [ New York
Heralu Cable S | > cehl to the Hin : . ] Dls-
ensuing the Chicago convention , on which
subject It has dally buoclal cables , the Free
man's Journal saj a : "This convention has
an Importance which it would ba Idle to at
tempt to measure. It will be big with the
fate ot the nation and race. Mr. Davltt has
great appreciation ot Its uower for good or
111. The tone and temper of his address
merit praise and ate eminently worthy of Im
itation. "
The Irish Times ( conservative ) sajs : "In
this state of matters the convention Is n crit
ical occasion and Mr. Gladstone and Mr. Par-
nellboth will no doubt anxiously look for
telegrams reporting whether the American
delegates are statutory parliament men or
shall Insist on going for something more de
cided than this In the way ot damage or
destruction to John Bull. "
Mil. P.\KVii.I.'S : DII.r.VIMA.
'Iho Moinlng Postsa > s : "Mr. Parnell Is In
a dilemma of no Inconsiderable proportions.
Hestiengihenedliis political army with a
right wing of Knallsh auxllaries , whose
Ideas and motives are totally Irreconclllable
with those of his irregular auxllary ,
vho skirmish with apparent friendliness
oil his other Hank. These two forces will
not wmk long In harmony. Once moic wo
lind Mr. Parnell sounding the call to battle ,
but whether ho will rontlnuo for many
months the real leader of his motley follow-
Ingls becoming a doubtful matter. "
'Ihe Daily News ( Gladstonlan ) comment
ing on Its own exhaustive cable dispatch
f i om Chicago , observes that "It remains to
bo seen vvhethei Messrs. Davltt , O'Brien ,
Ivedmonii nnd Deasy , with the American
citizens who support them , will be able
to control the convention and
silence or expel those members who
advocate the use of djnamlte.
If thev were to fail , which is hardly conceiv
able , the convention would be regarded with
indignant contempt by all decent " people ,
whether In 1'nglaml or the United" States.
But it must not bo forsotten that the dele
gates from Ireland have resolutely set their
faces , not only against the hideous wicked
ness of thn dynamiters , but against the coun
sels ofv lolenco In any shape. "
Concrrnlni : the Squalls nnd FJinuIs.
CHICAGO , August 17. [ Soeclal Tele
gram to the Bi.i : . I Delegates to the Irish
National League convention crowded into
the city all day to-day. The halls of the
Grand Paclllo weio thronged with scoies of
Celts all bent unon extending a hearty
welcome to theicprescntlvcsi who have coino
across the sea to aid them In their councils.
3gan ! refuses to make any lengthened reply
to Dcvoy's attack on himself and Alcxandei
Sullivan. He con fines himself simply to
alleging that Dovoy Is and always has been
a kicker , and that he his from tune to tlmo
attacked every ouo concerned in Irish affairs
from Michael Davltt and Patilck Ford down
to himself. Ho laughs at Devon's threats.
io\oy seems to bo full of light
" 1 won't allow Sullivan and Kgan , " ho
said to-day , "to transfer themselves from the
dock to the position of complainants. The
question they iiiustsettlo bororu the convcn-
Is : Have they orhavo they not been true to
1'arncU ? Do they or do they not Intend to
force thu had of Painell and to drive Iicland
Into a physical force movement for which
she Is not piepaicd and through which they
are Incompetent as well as unwilling to guide
her ? "
Davltt Is said to be greatly annojcd by
the Ogdcn's grove declarations and has pos- [
tlvely declined to Interfere in disputes even
with a view to their adjustment. It Is there
fore certain that thu matter must be fought
out on the floor of the convention. The sig
nal for the onslaught will bo the nomination
of Alexander Sullivan for the presidency. It
Is understood that It will bo done In order to
give the latter an opportunity of refusing It
ns a vindication of character , and the oppor
tunity will be , utilized for the promised "ox-
posmes. "
His now certain that Mr. John Bojlo
O'ltlclly Is not coming to Chicago , and it Is
also believed Mr. P. A. Collins will also fail
to come.
The national committee of the league meets
to-night to select a temporary chairman and
to make arrangements for the convention.
For the position of chairman John F.
Flnortv's name Is the most favorably men
tioned ! llolsalso mentioned as Pi evident
Jigan's successor. Warm friends of his are
pushing him to the front. A good many
howlers , who would bo otherwise strong
Fluerty men , have now strong doubts of the
wisdom of electing him to the presidency In
view of his recent physical forcti utterances.
Flnurty na > s he does not desire his name to
bo put forvv.ud. With ward to Ids speech
In Ogdcn's grove ho made the follow Ing ex
planation to-day to a reporter : "Wo have
no desire to force the hand of Parnell , or to
drive the Irish people Into war unprepared.
All wo demand is tills ( and wo will bo satis-
lied with nothing less ) , that no luadei of the
Irish people who Is supposed to speak for
them shall commit himself or them to ac-
( opting as a llnal settlement bills of relief
unworthy of the dignity of Ireland's national
demands. Wo are perfectly willing toseo
them accept such bills as that of Gladstone
as a settlement on account , but that must
not bo accepted as the closing of the transac
tion. "
At tlio committee meeting to-night It was
decided to namii Judge James Fitzgerald , of
Cincinnati , for temporary chairman. Judge
I'lt/gcrald Is lozarded as a conservative , and
It Is expected that the nomination will meet
with the approval of all the elements repre
sented In the convention. Owing 10 tl.e de
lay of Treasurer G'Keilly In arriving and
the consequent delay In preparing the cre
dentials of delegates , the convention will not
bo called to onlt r until 2 o'clock to-morrow
afternoon. Too Massachusetts delegation
held a caucus this evening , and the names of
John Boyle O'ltelily andl1. A. Collins vvero
biicgested for the presidency , but It was
Muted that neither of the gentlemen would
accent the position , Without taking any
fuitlior action It was decldedb to await the
arrival of tb Now York delegation. The
' opposition , " therefore , have not as vet de
cided upon anyone to support for piestdent.

CHICAGO , Aiuust 17. The train bearing

Dr. 0. W Pepper and Dr. Thomas O'Kclllv.
Mr. Hnerty welcomed the visitors brlellv
anil Mr. O'Brien lesponded warmly nearly
as follows : "Mr. Finerty : I am Indeed very
proud to make your acquaintance , and am
most happy to approach Chicago In such
compauj. Woaroonlv humble representa
tives of our common cause , but In the name of
that cause and its noble leader , wo accept
jour kind welcome most gracefully. His
vvltligieat satisfaction that we receive your
assurances that the Interest we have long

iMjoplo of the west have felt In the affairs of
Ireland has sulfeicd no diminution. U o me

ences which exist as to the policy to bo pur
sued do not endanger the principle , which is
the emancipation of Ireland. "
We approach Chicago full of the hope and
belief that the occasion of our visit will re
sult In a manner that will strengthen the
hand of our leader and be of lasting good to
Ireland. Again wo thank joii tor jour wel
At the close of Mi. O'Brien's response the
parliamentary paity was conducted through
the ears occupied by the e of the reciilv-
Ing delegation , who could not listen
to the addresses owing to the lack of room.
Kach delegate was presented andgiected
with inolotigcd cheers. After the reception
given the delegates and as tlm train pulled
out of Michigan City Mr. O'Brien nave an
Associated pi ess reporter an Interesting re
cital of his views regarding the Irish prob
lem. 'The failure of the homo
rule bill , " ho said , "has tempo
rarily dofeircd the hopes of the liish
tenantrj. When the policy of Salisbury
shall have compelled him t3 ask parliament
for coercive measures then the lug of war
will have come. " Mr. O'Brien said in expla
nation of hisexpics-ion , "the tug of war , "
that ut > to the Diluent time the land
league had made no organised effort
to reduce rents , rather encouraging the
pavmcnl of them without a imtimur In order
not to obstiuct the progiess of
CiUitstoiic'shomuiule. Now that the homo
line scheme has failed , thu national league
could no longer , even it it dcslicd , Induce or
torco the people to pav rents , which had al-
leady brought them to the verge of universal
bankiui'tcv. Mi. O'Brien could not predict
exactly wliat the lesult would be , but It
was ceitaln that the league would ba
dilvcn to attempt , by pcifectly legal meth
ods , to secure foi the Irish tenants thu re
lief , which the English laudloidsaio volun
tarily vlelilliig to their English tenants.
When these methods made It nocessaiv for
Salisbury to apply to parliaments for
coercive measures Gladstone's opportunity
would come and ho would et the support ,
which had previously been denied him ,
Mr. licdmond said In the course of a con
versation with the Associated press reporter
that the remainder of Gladstone's career was
consecrated to the securing of home rule
for Ireland , and that when the opportunity
C.UHO ( iluitstone , if living , would conduct a
second campaign In the Interest of self gov
ernment for lieland with all the vigor which
cluracUuUed his recent great cffoit In that

the queen's speech will be empty of any
statement of policy or matter leading to a

the government may raise a discussion ovei
the omissions , no ouo will bo able
to challenge a single proposition contained
in the speech. P.unell may ralso the lent
question In order to keep the American ex-
trcmests In good humor , but It must be the
business of Sir Michael Hicks-licacli to dis
abuse the liish of their licllof in the omnipot
ence of boycotting as a means ot whittling
rents to ? eio. When he has done that Irish
men will not be-slow to avail themselves of

Senator Van U'yclc's Appeal.
WASHINGTON , Aiuust 17. [ special Tele
gram to the Br.E.J Senator Van WycL's ap
peal to the people of Nebraska to exeiclso
their constitutional right of voting dhectly
for United States senator without the inter
vention of the state legislature , attracts con
siderable attention here. Mr. Van Wyck has
persistently opposed all kinds of monopolies
and he now evidently fears that they may
take revenge by exerting an influence In the
Nebraska legislature sutliclently potent to
defeat Ills re-election. With the people hois
very stump , and ho would feel sine of a pop
ular endoiscment at the polls. Hence his
appeal. If his constituents should take his
advice and overildo an adverse vote of the
legislature , It would be a political event of
no little interest , and perhaps bo the small
beginning of a great change In the affairs of
the national senate In the distant future.
Therefore the politicians are giving tlie mat
ter their attention. They are also quite so
licitous about the growth of the "Wheel" in
Arkansas , an Independent agricultural or
ganization , which already contiols ovci
60,000 votes and bids fair to hold the balance
of power soon In that and other southern
