T , Sept. 10. [ Now York Her-
nld Cable Special to the Bin : . ] The revival
of Welsh national feeling In one of the si 15119
of tlio times. Then the laiigiiago which was
lately dying out Is now being levlvcd ami Its
use actually increasing nnd spreading. The
plctutfiqiie Klstedfodd , tlio annual meeting
for tin1 coiiipcllilon of essajs In poetrv and
slnginIs carried on with Inereaslnv enthu
siasm In the various towns of the principal
ity In the vernacular language , with the an
cient ilntlillcitl ceremonies which tlio sons of
Wales , who honored tlie'-o gatherings In dnys
of joie , held In most respect. With Wclbh-
incn the talent of music Is Inborn nnd It Is
curious to see the rustle lovers quartet paitles
Blueing in thocounlrv lanes. Learn I UK is
esteemed nnd the popular outcry for educa
tional facilities has been partly satlslled by
tlio institution of colleges at Monger and Car
diff. Abujstwlck college was literally found-
cdlwith I'm ' people's pen en. The national ic-
llglon Is oviineellcat. 1'rotesta nts of various
denomination * , so called dissenters , worship
mostly In the Welsh language. The people
inhabit clean whitewashed cottages on hills
nnd In valleys. They are kindly , unobtru-
bive , hospitable and patient.

In their capacity for enthusiasm. They vol
untarily maintain their own religious ser
vice1 ? and aid missionary efforts to an extent
disproportionate to their means. There is a
remarkable absence of crime. Such are the
actual tillers of the soil In South Wales. Tlio
The inannis and workmen are equally devout
nnd lowgibrding. All these havea high Ideal
of a gooif life , a thirst for knowledge and an
iictlvo sj mp.ithy with the younger aspirants.
The colliers ot Glamorganshire and the qtiar-
rymcn of Carnarvonshire assist out of their
dally wages in the foundation of scholarships
to maintain lads nt colics. Many country
chapels club to educate students of promising
literary or musical talent. Apart , from these
there 5s the other cln s composed of the
squires , clergy and olllclaldom , forming a
small minoilty of siipercelious people , who
attend the Kiiglish churches , which use ihc
Kngllsh language. These wore formerly
their oppressors , but In tlio election of 1SG3
many of the tenants voting liberal were
ejected from their farms an outrage never
to bo forgotten or forgiven and they aie
now powerless. Tlio ballot extended the
franchise but the evil spirit still rum iins.
Many of the clergymen scorn intercourse
with tlm dissenting ministers and decline to
co-operate with them and claim the monopoly
ely of the chiisttan religion. The peop'.o '
generally do not- respect the cloth. A com
mon saying among the Wolclmvju is , "If he
is too stupid or worthless to live , make him
o clergyman. " There are souio exceptions
but the peisomicl of tlio English chinch in
Wales Is not satisfactory.

nnd fanned by small yearly tenants , witli no
capital nnd content to live from hand to
mouth. Their position Is always precarious.
They nro attached to home , but many emi
grate. They love to go together and remain
in the sound of the old language. There arc
Welsh colonies In Illinois Patagonia and
Australia , The Itritlsh parliament is rep -
p a riled as predominantly English , and the
Welsh question Is shelved and meaaro re
sponse given on thomxmiotlon of education
nnd the use of the Welsh Inniriiniro. The dis
establishment of the church nnd the settle-
inontof tlio landed tenant question , several
Euch points of legislation for Wales in ac
cordance with Welsh Ideas , are earnestly
wished. They seemed till lately unattaina
ble , but Mr. Gladstone's Irish proposals have
struck a lesponslvo chord , for they want the
home into themselves if they let Ireland have
It. The Welsh elections are overwhelmingly
Gladstoninn , nnd Chamberlain and Ilni ting-
ton are barely listened to. In the mean
time , an extensive demand Is made for more
energy from the Welsh members in tlio com
mons. There contimtcsa great deal of corre
spondence on the question In the Welsh
newspapers , but a considerable consensus of
opinion holds that no actual home rule asso
ciation can bo justyet , but Is quite likely to
bo soon founded. At the present moment at
tention is occupied with a tltho coutroveisy.

Special to the lJr.ir--Theaddie | s which has
been elaborated by n committee of thu
sobranjc and accepted by that body In reply
to the messaze of the regencies , was to day
presented to the sitting of the assembly. It
b'eglns by expressing the esteem nnd trail-
tudo of the country for those ot its repre ,
sentatives who discharged their duty In n
critical moment to tlio fatherland. Tlio ad
dress goes on to brand the event ot the 21st
of August as n ' 'horrible crime ngalnst
the Independence of Uulgaria and against
the crown of our beloved I'rince Alexander , "
milling that It was committed uv a few evil-
disposed and misled Individuals. "We take
the opportunity , " the address went on to
say , "of assuring ( he prince of the horror
wltli wliich the \\holo nation has icganted
the disgraceful plot against him. Tlio people
ple of Bulgaria return their best thanks to
the prince for his assurance that the inde
pendence , the freedom and the rights of the
fatherland shall not be Infringed. They are
also grateful to him for his magnanimous
decision to renounce the throne of Bulgaria ,
in order to restore good relations between
Itussla and Hukarla. We hope , finally , that
the problem now awaiting solution will be
solved in such n way as to conserve the inter
ests of the fatherland. "
That part of the address winch refers to the
clcct'on ' of a prince , runs : "Tho chamber
looks forward loan caily summoning , of the
great assembly with a view to the election of
our prince in harmony with the provisions of
the constitution , and in accordance with the
popular \\ill. "
The address expresses confidence in tlio re
gency , ana closes with the words , "a free , in

Citic.uio , Sept. 10. The first national con

Its Cession In this city this afternoon. When
the convention was c-illed to order them
wen1 about tlneo hundred delegates on the
lloor , with onlv a spi Inkling ol spectators.
A tew Indies and gentlemen were In the gal
lery. Tlie convention was called to order oy
Albert Griflln , of Kansas , who askeil
Itev. Arthur Little. of Chicago ,
to open the proceedings with prajer.
Grinin then said lie was requested o suggest
the name of United States Senator
Henry W. Blair of New Hampshire for torn-
poraiy chairman. J. C. Shafcrof Illinois for
temporary secietaiy , L. H. Kllottof Ktinsns

irro.ssnian Fiost of Massachusetts , Kx-Con-
giessman Piieo of Iowa , and Judge Taylo-
of Indiana wern appointed to oscoit Senator
Blair to the platfoim. In addressing tlie
convention Senator Blair said :
"Gentlemen of the convention : I feel
highly honored In being asked to piosldo
over this gieat and hlstoile convention ,
which 1 Hi inly believe will Iho In the an
nals of all time. Wo aio heio for theile-
stiuctlonoi the rum traflic tliiougliont this
country and thioiighont the world. I think 1
speak the sentiment of the convention when
1 saj Unit as between free linn nnd low li
cense weniu in favor of low license ( cheers ) ;
that ns between low license and liik-li license
wo aie In favor of high license , ( checrsj ;
that as between high license and prohibition
we nro in favor of prohibition. ( Great
Blair wont on to sav also that they met as
republicans. They wcie in that party nnd
could not be driven out , and lie was one of
thosH men who believed that it was only
through the republican paity that the sup-
pie slon of the liquor tiatllc could bo secured.
The call of states was then proceeded with ,
to form committees on permanent organiza
tion , credentialsoiderof business nnd losolu-
The committee on resolutions was com
posed as follows : Khode Island. Henry B.

The committee on permanent orcanUation
reported the name ot ex-Senator William
Windoin , of Minnesota , for permanent chair
man. Ho was unanliroiisly elected. The
scoiutniles pro tern weio elected as permanent
olllrers , and vice presidents , weie nominated
from each state.
Windoin was loudly cheered ns lie wa *
escoited lo the chair by cx-beiiator Mi-dill , ot
Iowa , nnd Geneial Conway , of New i'oik.
When the new chairman appeared befoie the
convcntion he said :
"Gentlemen of the Conference : 1 hlirhly
appieciato the honor you have conform !
upon me. There are possibly others present
who could state better limn I can the pit-else
purposes of lliis convention. We aio here
under call of true nnd loyal lenublicans
deslrlng.to accomplish wliat wo bi'licvo will
boot gieat good to the Ameilean people.
For myself 1 never had the slightest thought
of attempting to organize a new
political party. 1 think tnat such n
thought does not enter the minds of any
other delegates here present. The pai ty that
freed the slave , that dignified liuma.i latwr ,
that enacted the homestead law , that sup
pressed the great rebellion , that defended
its honor and advanced It to tha iront rank
of tlie nations of the earth , is good enough
tor me. " Tlw speaker said the record of the
paily for twenty years showed its willingness
to grapple this new issue and cnrry it to vic
tory. The issue was as grave as nnv lepubll-
can bad to meet in the past. It resolved
itself Into tin ; question whether the saloon
was to dominate the policy of the nat on.
We are heio simply for consultation. W
meet to enpouiauo it to take hold of thisrnies-
tlon. wliich it fiurclv will have to do and the
sooner tlio better. Thespeauer said he would
lootat tlio question solely from a political
standpoint and not from a moral staiulpjint.
The saloon was in politics with its assess
ments and money. It to-day controls
the politics of every large city. "It elects
your mayors , " said the speaker. In Minnesota
seta the democratic paity Imil nominated ior
governor "tho very Incarnation of tlie saloon
inteiests. " Ho then spoke for thirty mlnute.s
on tlio general issue. He touched on the pro
hibitionists and said it was his view that
they could carry out their ituiposes In n bet
ter way. In lollowing tlie lead of the lepub-
lican party they will find that that party
said that slavery should extend uo tuithrr ,
and on that platform slavery was absolutely
abolished. If the lepublican party would de
clare tor high license , local option and iccog-
nl7o the rignt of tlio people to vote on the
question diiectly when they wished to do so ,
all lovers of temperance should follow that
lead.On the conclusion of Wlndom's address
tlie convention adjourned toUo.clock p. in.
When tlio convention reassembled in tlio
afternoon tlio committee on lesolu'.lons was
not. prepared to report and did not appear
before the convention until S o'clock. In the
meantime , short speeches were mode by n
number of delegates on the general temper
ance issue in the several states of the union.
The report of the committee was as lol-
The anti-saloon republicans , Jby their rep
resentatives In national conference assem
bled , declare ns follows :
" 1. That the liquor trafile .as It exists to-day
In the United States is nn enemy of society ,
a fiightfulbouiceot corruption in politic.1 ; ,
nn ully of anarchy , a school of crime , nnd ,
with its avowed purpojo of seeking to cor
ruptly control elections and legislation , is a
mennco to the public welfare and deserves
tha condemnation of nil good men.
i That wo declare war against the saloons
and hold it to bo the Htipiemo duty of tlie
government to adopt such measures that
shall lestrlct nnd coutiol Us InUuenco and at
the earliest possible moment extinguish it
3. Wu believe the national government
should absolutely prohibit the manufacture
and sale of Intoxicating liquors in the Dis
trict of Columbiitand in all Temtorics of the
4. Wo believe the best practical method of
dealing with the liquor tnxlllo In the several
states Is to let the i > eople decide whether It
thall bopiohibitcd by the submission of con-
ItituUonal amendments , and until such
Imuiidments are adopted by the passage of
ijcal option laws.
I fi. That inasmuch as the Saloon business
o/catcs n special buiilen of luxation upon the
vkjoplo to support courts , jails and almshouses -
houses , therefore a largo annual tax should
bi levied upon thebaloous as long as they
continue to exist , and that they should be
made responsible for pll public and private
injury resulting from the trafile.
0 , That the republican party , wherever and
whenever In power , will faithfully enforce
whatsoever ordinances , statutes or constitu
tional amendments ma ) bo enacted for the
itstilctiou or suppression of the liquor trufllc.
7. That vie approve tlio action of congress
and those states that have done so. In provid
ing for teaching tha physiological effects of
Intoxicants in our public schools , and that we
earnestlyrecommeiulto every state legWa-
tuie the enactment of such laws as shall pro
vide for the thorough teaching of such cilects
to our children.
8. Wo demand that Iho republican party ,
to which we belong , and whose welfare wo
cherish , shall take a tirm and decided stand
us a friend of tho. homo and enemy of tno
saloon , lu favor of this policy and these
measures. We pledjo ourselves to do our
utmost tocauio the party to take such a
stand , and we call upon temperance men and
all friendi of humanity , of whatever party
or name , to join with its In securing lhe e
objects , nnd In support of the republican
paity so far as It shall adopt them.

with only three dissenting vote1' . During

WASHINGTON , Sept. 10. [ Special Tele-
Kramtotho BEK.I The decorators at the
wlilto house are in a quandary as to v hnt to
do with tlie terrible mes * they have made of
the historical blue room. The delicate and
lovely painting of this exquisite room was
clone In Arthur's time by Tiffany and was
thu perfection of art. When the local paint
ers got Into the house this summer under the
supervision of the superintendent of public
buildings , they thought they had dl-coveicd
that the lower part of the walls of the blue
room had faded. Xow the design of Tllfnny
had been a graduation of blue , nnd for the
delicate light tint the new artists thought
they had discovered n fading. So ciders
weie given for a grand dado of sky blue.
Old the anguish of the artists when they dis
covered tlielr awful blunder. But w oi-st of
all was the hideous effect the ultra marine
had on the delicate robins eggs blue.
But the damage had been done and the best
had to be made of It , so the painters manfully
went to work , and when the room was given
its Mist coat It was a vei liable nightman * .
What exactly to do they knew not , but to-day
the "artists" were very busy in tijing to
"llirhten" iho shades on the hideous ultra-
inniino to soften It down. Them were tlneo
painters on n ladder trying the effect of a
light sea Kieen on ono of the shutteis. The
boss artist was mixing various coloicd blues
in spots on the lloor , and "Hector , " the Ant
werp poodle , was showinir Ills utter disgust
of tne whole affair by turning up his nose at
each place of fresh paint. "Hector , " of late ,
has become quite the master of the whlto
house. He has had n new alliRator skin col
lar sent him from his mistress In the Adirondacks -
dacks and on the collar is a plain plato bear
ing these words : "Hector Cleveland. " Hec
tor has been sheared and washed and is now'

Ciiic.vtio , Sept. 10. [ Special Telegram
to the BIK. : ] For several days there has been
considerable talk In Chicago about tlio
chnngo in the tre.iMirershlp of the lilsli Na
tional league of Vmcilca. It has been stated
that Ucv , Dr. O'llielly , of Detroit , was about
to rcslirn nnd that llcv. Maurice J. Dornev ,
of St. Gabriel's church nt the Union Stock
Ynrds , was likely to succeed him. Hev. Dr.
O'ltcllly's icslmintlon Is due , It Is said , lo the
action of the recent co'nfercnco of the cleigy
of the Detroit diocese held nt Sandwich , Out. ,
which adopted among other rules the follow-
"Xo priest in our diocese Is permitted lo
hold political ollice of any kind , nor olllro In

hinted that the rule was aimed .sx. cially at
him. It was adopted thu I'.Uh of August ,
about the. same time ho was elected by the
Chicago convention as treasure ! ol the

ns to whether Father Dorney will bo pei-
milted to necept the position of trcasuter by
Archbishop Fechan. It is almost absolutely
necessary to the success of tlio league that
clergymen should act In that capacity. Irish
Catholics ot America will not have so much
