I ) rni.ix , August 'M. \ New York Herald
Cable Special to the Br.H. ] The struggle
betvtcen the police and the tenants ousted In
the evictions on the Marquis of Clanrieardo's
estate , near Woodford , continues to bo the
great topic heie. I have just rcturnc'd ftoin
n visit to the locality. ( lalway men In Amer
ica may remember a little stieam at the south-
cast corner of Ualway county called Wood-
ford river , which empties into ttio Shannon ,
wheiolt foims the plctutesqito Louehdera.
Here , as Is already generally known In New
Yoik , the tenant Saundeison has barricaded
his bouse , with fifty men Inside. They meta
phorically sing thu Moody and Saukey song ,
"iioi.n TIII : roitr. "
I found the place almost in a state of
Blege. In the country round about Wood-
lord , for twenty miles from the nearest rail
way station , the people form quite n primitive
community , and know scarcely anything of
the theoretical views concerning evictions
now being aned in the house of commons.
They are , however , practical people. They
have ploughed the roadways leading to
"Sauiiiierson's fort. " as his house Is irener-
ally called. Near tiio house trees , trunks
and branches have been laid across the ap
proaches. This was done on the Instigation
of a rumor that the ball I Its were
nitlNfllXO A IIATTKIHNII HAM.
The bailiffs , however , cannot now come be
cause the people have destroyed the bridge
over tlio Shannon on the road from Porlumua
to Loiiscan. Near the latter place are thou
sands of people coming from Clare. The
Limerick church bells aio continually tolling
for miles along the road. Strangers arc
looked on suspiciously , but as an American
i needed no backing. U.illlnasloc , to the
northward , Is a marked town and the head
quarters of the Oalway constabulary , where
the authorities are drafting more police ,
whoso spiked helmets are seen along the
causeways , for really the whole district is In
most excited and resolute condition.
really constitute a strong garrison at Por-
tumna , between Woodford and Balllnasloc.
No soldiers are yet to bo seen , but the author
ities say tl detachments arc ready. Nearly
twenty other * tenant * than Saunderson's ex
pect evictions , and are about ready for a
Biegc. All these have reclaimed improved
laud without the aid of Claiiriearde. The
amount of rent due frotr. all docs not exceed
gSOO. Saunderson is liable for SCO a year , but
the costs are now S03 against him. Tlio po
lice force is

of Portumna anil elsewhere , and with great
difficulty the constabulary are getting feeder
or drinic , except tor a little garden of truit
and the Shannon water. County Inspector
O'Brien tineatened the shopkeepers with
billeting the policemen. The Saiiudersons'
case Is regarded as a test one. I found that
nil had got the idea that the new government
isgoln ; to use strong coercion , and think that
o stand had better bo made when the supplies
nre in tlio house for a fortnight.

All the roads and principal places are
picketed by the populace. Men who are
working at the little harvesting will get duo
notice when the storming of the fort begins.
Some thought that Chinrlcardo might with
draw his process , but the landlord dilemma
is on him. If ho surrenders tlio tenants
everywhere will take now courage. I think
that very soon the conflict will begin but It
Is not expected that the tenants will use lire-

Sexton Introduces an Amendment
WIilcli Creates a Sensation.
LONDON , August 20. Sexton , Parnellltc ,
gave notice in the commons this evening of
Ills intention to move the following amend
ment In the address In reply to the queen's
speech :
We humbly represent to your majesty that
the circumstances accountable for the recent
riots in lielfust dictate tlio necessity for
special measures to maintain order there , the
most urgent of those measures being the
re-establishment of your majesty's author
ities in the district wlicrofrom the police have
been expelled , by the Increase of local con
stabulary to such strength as will enable It to
deal wltn any probable contingency.
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach declared that
Ccncral Buller was not sent to Ireland to es
tablish martial law. nor to strain ordinary
law. but merely to assist the civil authorities
in the won ; ot preserving social order and
detecting and punishing crime.
Tins reply was not deemed satisfactory
by the opposition , and Russell moved thu ad
journment of the house. Wholesale opposi
tion , consisting of all the Cladstonlan and
Panic ! 11 to members , arose In support of the
motion , and Russell proceeded to contend
that the policy of government was to degrade
Ireland to thu level of a savage and barbar
ous country. Ho made a vigorous speech , In
which ho said that General Buller was only
known as a military man , and It had been
predicted that he ( Bullcr ) , would treat the
moonlighters as rebels.
Lord Randolph Churchill replied at length ,
defending the govern men t'.s policy and reaf
firming Hicks-Beach's assertions about
Bliller. Churchill did not want an adjourn
ment , lu-coucluslon Churchill said : Tlio
motion wilt not have a practical Issue. The
government refuses to discuss the merits of
General Buller's appointment , and wilt have
nothing inure to do with the discussion.
( Cheers ) .
Sir William Vernon Hareourt replied to
Churcuill. Itussell's motion was finally
ielected.
Chamberlain , resuming the debate , said
there were two sides to the runt Question
willingness and ability. They wanted to
know whether the tenants would be per
mitted to pay If they w e willing ,
and also whether thu Panie.ll-
ites supported Parndl's attitude
when he said at Chicago it was their duty to
make English government In Ireland impos
sible. If the Purnellltes repudiated that
speech , they must also repudiate American
donations.
Russell followed and the debate then ad

tive bom and naturalized , while sojourning
in foreign lands , and we heartily commend
the prompt and successful demand of Presi
dent Cleveland's administration for the re
lease Of an American citizen from unjust
confinement In a Mexican prison.
Kesolvcd , That the taxation of the people
for other purposes than that of raising reve
nue for the expenses of the government
economically administered , Is robbery under
the form ot law ; that we arc In favor ot a
reduction of the present unjust tariff to a
revenue basis , mid heartily endorse the action
of those democratic lenrescntatives in con-
giess who were faithful to the cause of tariff
reform.
Jtesolved , That the action of the demo
cratic house of representatives of the lorty-
clghth and forty-ninth congresses In declar
ing forfeited and reclaiming from railroad
corporations about 100,000,000 acres of land
unearned by such corporations is hereby
heartily endorsed and approved.
Kesolved , That the ownership of real
estate in this country by persons not citizens
of the United States , or who have not de
clared their intention to become such , Is
injurious to American interests and may bo
attended with evil consequences. Wo there
fore heartily approve of such legislation by
congress as will effectually protect the public
lands from such alien entries and ownership ,
so that the same may , as fur as possible ba
reserved for our own citizens.
Jtesolved , That we favor a financial policy
in which gold and silver and paper currency
convertible into coin on demand , shall consti
tute the circulating medium ; that thu surplus
in the national treasury sho.ihl . bo applied in
the payment of tile national public debt , to
the ends that large accumulations in the
tieasury beyond the proper necessities of the
public service shall not occur , thus assuring
honest and economical government and re
lieving the people from unnecessary and oj > -
presslve taxation.
Jtesolved , That we are opposed to the Im

mand the passage of stringent laws to pro
tect the health , and enhance the safety of
employes of railways , manufacturing estab
lishments and mining operators , and to com
pel employers to mak's prompt payment of
wages to those in their employ ; that wo ap
prove legislation prohibiting thu employment
of children under fourteen years of age In
the mines and factories of this state ; that
In the enactment of all laws , strict regard
should be had for tlio rigiits of the laboring
masses , and that wage workers should bo
protected from tlio oppressive power of
monopolies and encouraged in ail lawful
efforts , organized or otherwise , to secure just
compensation and to advance their social and
material interests.
Kesolvcd , That we favor such measures and
policies as will promote harmony in the icia-

both , and to this end wo favor the establish

employes.
Kesolvcd , That we favor the enactment of
such laws as will effectually prohibit convict

slst constituted authorities are criminal and
subversive of the popular rights and should

province of the government to control the
habits , tastes , appetites and libcities of people
ple so Ionr as they are orderly and peaceable
and do not encroach upon the rights' * of
others or of society. Wo therefore declare
the prohibition , by constitution or by general
laws , ot the manufacture or sale ot vinous ,
mult or spirltous liquors , would bo In viola
tion of individual and personal rights and
contrary to tlio fundamental principles of
free government.
Kesolved , That in common with thedcmoc ?

republican state convention met again tills
morning. The temperance question Is causing
delay In the formation of the platform. A

cussed by the committee on resolutions until
2 o'clock this morning without .settling the
question. At s o'clock the committee aealn
assembled and resumed the discussion. Cyrus
W. Luce was nominated tor governor by ac
clamation and James > A. McDonald , of hsen-
nda. for Lieutenant Governor.
Two platform adopted favors tariff upon
Imported products of lower priced foreign
labor and the restoration of the 1S07 tariff on
wool. The organization of labor for the pro
tection of their interests Is favored , as is also
the enactment of laws for the settlement of
controversies by arbitration. The platform
opposes the importation of Chinese labor , the
abolishment ot convict labor , provided tree
labor will not bt > compelled to support con
victs in idleness ; oppuse.s tlio doctrine of the
anarchists , and advocates absolute protection
of every Individual In the enjoyment of the
fruits ot his personal efforts ; advocates that
the people should be allowed to vote upon
any change In the law as affecting liquor sell
ing , and opposes granting any of thu public
domain to aliens.
The following In addition were nominated :

The resolutions denounce the present na
tional administration for Its Indefensible
vetoes of measuics for the relief of veterans
and widows and orphans of veterans. The
resolutions insist that "It Is the duty of con
gress to enact such laws as shall promptly
and effectually suppress the system of polyg
amy. and that the laws so enacted shall be
rigidly enforced , by the civil athorities if pos
sible , and by the military If necessary. " Sym
pathy for the Irish nation In their gallant
struggle for the sacred right of self govern
ment Is lealliriued. The democracy in con
gress is condemned for its flagrant outrages
of tlio spirit and letter of the constitution in
refusing admission to the territory of Da
kota , entitled to an honorable place in the
sisterhood of siatcs.
( Sconce A. Karr , of Ottawa , submitted a
minority report regarding the temperance
plank , as follows :
1. That we believe that the Republican
party Is the only true temperance party ,
through which all legislation favoring tem
perance must bo obtained.
2. That thu vast majority of that pafty
deplore the existence of the evil of the liquor
trunk1 , and hope tor Us ultimate extinction.
3. That the mass -of that party demand
from us a clear and distinct declaration of
our position upon that question. Therefore
we submit the following as the temperance
plank In our platform :
Hesolved , That the Republican party is In
favor of the .ultimata ! Fuppiession of tlie
liquor trallic , and hereby rcatllrms. Its
doctrines of submission as incorporated on

The President Tells Why Ho Ap
pointed Matthews.
NKW Yonif , August 20. [ Special Telegram
to the HKK.I The Herald this morning pub
lishes a long interview with President Cleve
land In regardto hisappolntmentof Recorder
Matthews to succeed Frederick Douglas ,
The president said :
"Iliad only ono object in apnolnting Mr.
Matthews , namely : to put the best -man 1
could Hud , that is the best colored man , in
the position. The colored race is develop
ing a ureat many able men. They have ae-
complisned wonders duriiii ; the last twenty-
live years. I could not appoint them all , so I
was compelled to use my best judgment to do
service to our colored fellow citizens and at
the same time to give tlio appointment to a
lalthful and able man. "
"A colored democrat " the
, reporter sug
gested , "is regarded as a novelty. 1 have
oven heard that a gentleman well known in
Washington remarked that a colored demo-
"crat Is a political anomaly or even inon-
"Yes , " ho replied , "I believe there Is some
such opinion In the air , but It is not an opin
ion of which a man has any rUht to bo
.proud. A colored democrat an anomaly I
And why , piayV"
'Well , because southerners , who were
their masters in old times , were nearly all
democrats. "
"True , " replied the president , "but the
last thirty years have brought changes in tills
country. Old relations are broken up and
old times can never return. Tlio noith and
south are equally giatllied by this fact. You
cannot apply rules which obtained yesterday
to tilings of to-day. We are a new nation.
Tlit ) occurrences of twenty-live years ago be
long to ancient liistory. .Now , then , we have
two great parties in this country. That is
our salvation. Every four years those par
ties have a wrestling match. Jt's a hot
light throughout the campaign. Hut
when tlio 1'urlit is over then we forget
the light-und settle down good naturally to
support the administration in every honest
effort toward good government Well , the
colored people ot the south arc just like all
the rest of us. The moment they begin to rec
ognize the duty of citizenship , that moment
they will be.ln to form convictions and to be
C0' " riieil by them. Does any reasonable man
su'pim.so that , when the white people ot the
country divide themselves between the re
publican and the democratic patties , the col
ored people will all think alike and join the
republican party1/ This is an insult to the
co .etl man's brains. It is the sheerest non-
sei , , mid , more than that. It would beagrcat
political calamity. The difference of opinion
is not only the charm of the republic ,
but it is also Its safety , and
I have no doubt that when education does
its effective woik tlio colored race of the
south will wheel Into line with the renubii-
can party and partly Into line with the dcni-
cratfc party. Jt cannot be otherwise so long
as human nature Is what It Is now. 1 have
great respect for the colored people. Again
and again J have told delegations which have
visited me tnat they must have convictions
ot their own and act on them ; that they
must choose their politics witli thoughtful
care and personal Indopcndenco , In that
way alone can they become woithy citizens
of the best government in the world. "
Press Criticisms.
WASIIINOTOX , August 20. [ Special Tele
gram to HKI : . ] Local papers continue to de
vote a great deal of special to criticism of the
president's course in appointing Matthews as
recorderof deeds In this district. The Critic
thlsuvenlng makes this point , which seems
to bo a good one : "Tho following is an
exact copy of the president's letter on file In
the olllce of the executive clerk of state :
To the senate of tlio United States :
1 nominate James C , Matthews , of Xe\v
York , to be recorder of deeds In the District
of Columbia , vice Frederick Douglas who
has leslgned ,
fSlgnedj ( iitovKit Cr.i-vii : : < AJ 'D.
Executive Mansion , Washington , Match
4th , IbSO.
"Tliero are noconditions accompanying tlio
president's letter as to the vacancy existing ,
for he says Douglas has icslgned. Tlio sub
sequent action ot tlio piesidcnt In commis
sioning Matthews as recorder of the deeds
was therefore to fill a vacancy , which hap
pened while the senate was In session. This
action brings both the president and Matth
ews under the penalties of sections 1771 and
1 72 of the revised statues and the conditions
are aggravated by the fact of Matthews hav
ing already been rejected by the senate. The
continuance of Air. Matthews to act as re
corder of deeds under these circumstances is
not unlikely to create as much commotion , If
not some very serious teal estate complica
tions , as"iiny other darkey ever found in a
wood pile , "
