NKW Voiiit , May 10. [ Special Telegram to
tlio Hii.J : : The committee of welcome to tlio
incoming Irish agitator , William O'Urlonre ,
mained on tliu steamer John K. Moore , nt
quarantine , until 0 o'clock last cvenlng.whon
they de'.ei mined to go In search ol the Um-
brla , It being evident she was not coming up.
After getting a doctor aboard nnd securing n
IK'rmli from ttie custom ofllccrs , they started
mid alter n long and peillous trip through n fog nnd a largo licet of detained ves
sels , they reached the Unibrln , way outsldn
the bar unit olt the Iteht ship. The big Cuii-
arder was crowded and the coming up of the
wee steamboat brought everybody on deck.
The first gtcoting of the visitor was a round
of cheers for Mr. O'Hrlon and this was met
by a genetal cheer of welcome and In nil in
stant three chcetH tor Lord Lniisdnwuc from
hundreds of lusty English throats on the
steamer's crowded side * . The cheers came
with n will. Cheers were hurled b.ick tor
O'Brien and all thu time It was Impossible
l'ir the captain of the visiting steamer to
make known his wishes about lopes , etc. In
n lull of the storm ot huirahs the English
national anthem was started , find while hun
dreds snug "tiod Save the Queen , " scores
Bang " ( ! od Save Ireland. " It was n novel
Hlght indeed for such an hour and ttlace.
"Tnko this ropoJ" was shouted again and
ngaln from the lower .steami'r to the quarter
masters on the big Ciinnrdcr. Not the least
attention was p.ild the request nnd Instead
came back dialling tinm the passengers and
others. At last Captain Mc.Michcn was called
for and with a llttln bull s eyti lantern came
to the bide : "Why do von come and who aio
ye , anyhow , here nnd shout-
Ini : , 'tiilto that ropel' us though we
were dogs. You can't come on till the doc
tors come. '
"We have the doctor nni ) the custom ofli-
cor , " WHS shouted back.
"Then come on with ye. "
"P.iHS clown n rope lndder"was the request
from those on the \\eo tender.
" \Ve have no lope ladder for ye , " was the
surly reponso ot the Cunard eommodore ,
and n cheer lor William O'llrien was Hutu
back in answer. An ordinary ladder was
found on the Mooie , nnd nji this the doctor
climbed. A stout voice called out : "Aie
them any ft lends of mine there who wish
me. " It was O'llrlen's voice , and when n
hearty "yes" went back he said : "Then I'll
come If only as n compliment to the cowaids
that control here , lie got on the ladder
bravely. .lust at that moment the
hawser parted and he came Aery near
taking n dip Into the Atlant'c. ' He got on
board nowe\cr. and wllh another round ot
chccis for O'Brien and counter chceis for
Lansdowne the two vessels parted company.
Down In the rabln the Irish patriot in his
traveling suit ot frhuu was given Hie address
already published. Hi ) made a response
thaiiKing me mimltteo tor this welcome to
American .seas if not to American lands. He
spoke of his mission as n delicate nnd to
some extent a dangerous one. He spoke ot
Icctedby the landlouls ns a soil of llyuro-
head. 1 ho question was to bo submitted to
the Canadian people to nibltrntc. Ho con
cluded by iiiging his hearers to
put full confidence In 1'arnell ns
n- leader and predicted the utter
failure of the Unlfour coercion scheme. It
was far Into tlm morning before the com
mittee had their guest safe in the Hoffman
house. It is not likely that ho will bo. pres
ent at the Cooper Institute meeting on
Wednesday evening ns ho has an engage
ment to speak In the Dominion on that even
ing and does not wish to spoil the elleut of
his Canadian campaign by speaking on
American soil.
William O'Uricn was seen at the
Holfman house this morning und
after alluding to the band of
British loyalists who had tried to make it mi-
comtortablo lor him on the voyage over , ho
said : " 1 cannot wait to speak In New York
as much as I would wish to. My mission Is
to Canada and 1 must guard all my strength.
Besides , they have the tirst right to hear me.
1 shall start tor Montieal to-night and make
my Hist speech there. I hear my Irish
friends lm\e been refused every laiio hall In
Montieal , but that will make no dltrcronce ,
for , If necessary , 1 shall speak in the public
square. "
"Have you any fears of trouble ? "
"Not the least. I go to Canada on a mis
sion popular nllko with 1'rotestant and Cath
olic , and will set forth the wronirs of the
farmers of Ulster as forcibly ns those of the
tellers of the south. Thcio is no leliglous
question In the matter , for It is purely one
of human justice. 1 appicclntc the Intended
honor of the escort fiom Irishmen of Now
York , but 1 have declined It and shall go to
Canada just as n simple traveler on a peace
ful errand. "
U'lirlen emphatically denies that Parnell
Is sick or suffering from cancer , and sajs
that the great Irish leader was never better
In his Pte. Ho further says that the coercion
bill will pass , but It will react on Its promoters
meters and will certainly be lepealed when
Its obnoxious provisions become moiosoby
enforcement. Speaking of fie 1'ainell lat
ter , of whleh so much has been said and
written , U'Urlcn asserted most emphatically
that It was forgery and it viry clumsy one at
that. He would not say that Plggott was a
forcer , but ho spoke of him as n reneiraili
nnd said that if he did not write the letter h
was fully capable of It. U'Hrion said tut It
Impels back trom Canada safely , of which hi
has no doubt , he will spend n week speak
ing In New York , Philadelphia and Huston.
Atr. O'lirlcn lutt for .Montreal at 0tO : : to
night. In spertfclnu of his proposed trip ho
said It would bo conllned to n tew principal
cities of Canada. " 1 propose to raise tin
public opinion of the people to the
nets ot their governor general. Lord Lansdowne -
downe , up to the same level as It Is In Ire
land , and as It would be were ho n Intidlori'
In Canada and pursued the samocouisc as hi
has with his tenants In the old country. '
Mr. O'llrien said that ho would be governei
by the wishes of his friends thcie. He In
tended to spcnk of thn state of affairs 01
Lord Lansdowno's Irish estates In ver ;
plain torun. He would point out that tin
governor general of Canad.i had in a mos
violent nnd wanton manner pursued a coursi
ot action contrary to that which had been laU
down as acceptable to the Canadian govern
mi-lit. Canada had helped lielaml wltl
money. He ( O'Hrlen ) would shov
her people how to help Ireland in n moro of
feetualway. Ho proposed to give Canndi
the best opportunity she. ever had to strike i
blow which would clfoct wholesale clear
nnees. "Lord Lnnsdowne. " said O'llrlon
"Is the lirst landlord who has ever evlctei
tenants since the plan of the campaign \va
adopted. He has depopulated thu district :
snironndlng his property , proposing u'due
tlons In rents smaller b > tar thai
the otliclnl land commissioners are maklm
ton surrounding estates , and then icpudlatln
hoery terms ho authorized his agent
Doiiniiu' , to sK-n , mid which had been suu
gested as a settlement of the difficulties nni
approved by Lord Lansdowne himself. Hi
was thn tlrst landlord to be put forwnrd b
the rack renters to test the tenants bec.vus'
he , Is supixwed to bo Immensely wealthy
llecatiso lie Is located In Canada h
Is able to oj > enly defy and Ignor
inibllc opinion at home. Our only resonrci
feft to save nearly 500 people from the dc
Mruction Of their homes and what llttl
property they possess Is to appeal to tin
Canadian people to protest against thel
government's action as contrary to the opln
ton of their own parliament. " Speaking o
threats of personal violence made , O'llrlei
* ald : "Thero are always threat , I believe
made ; In joining the battle In behalf of th
l.npgacurran tenants , we arc now dolni
work astx.-ncflclal to the Ulster farmers as t
the other districts. I do not therefor
think that any ecctlon of Canada wll
try to disturb me. Neither wll
they try to prevent me fret
putllnc the case before the people. If
| li9llia belDJmvd in auy way it would be fa
more damaging to Lord Lan downo than to
me or the came I plead. " Mr. O'llrien In
tends to speak In several cities in this coun
try upon Ids return from Canad.i. He de-
ellneu to say under whoso authority ho had
started on the trip , saying he was responsi
ble for his cause.

Peter Ilynn Again In Court For Kill
ing Claim Klccvcr.
ATLANTIC , la. , May 10. [ Special Telegram
to thu BIK. : | Two years aio Peter llyati , of
Audubon county , was sentenced to twenty
years Imprisonment In the state penitentiary
for murder , llo had served part of his llmo
when his attorneys , L. L. Delano and J. J.
Dokln , secured for him a now trial and n
change of venue from the Audubon to the
Cass district couit. The trial has Just begun
befoio Judge Loolbourow. The particulars
of thu crime are ns follows : In the month
of December , Ib l , Clans Kleever , residing
near Draytou , Audubon county , nnd Ins
nephew , John Klec\er , a boy of fifteen years
of age , were sitting In tlio house by the lire
when a man enteieel and asked the privilege
of warming. The stranger had evidently
been drinking heavily nnel when ho offered
Kleever a portion of the contents
of his bottle the latter re-
fu cd. Then the stranirer went out. re
turned nnd went out thu third time. Then
the door was opened and some one
lired two shots from a revolver. The
Hist shot entered the throat of Clans
Kleever and the second entered the breast ,
causing almost Instant death. Ityan was
.accused of thomurder nud the clicumstantlal
evidence was very strong against him.
Younz Kleever proceeded to shift himselt
from the upper to thu lower sidu of tlm bed ,
on which he was lying when Iho lirst shot
was Hied , and can'not tell who did tlio shoot
ing. At liiht ho said he did not know the
stranger \ \ ho entered the house1 , but It Is now
understood that ho will testifv on the stand
that It was Peter Uvan. A pa'ir of mittens
lelt on the btove hearth by the stranger were
nlso Idenlllied as Ryan's. At any rate ltyan
was tried betoie Judge Loofhourow in tlio
Audubon district court in a town whcro Iho
feelinir was so intense against the defendant
that lynching was commonly talked of nnd
ho was sentenced to twenty yeais Imprison
ment. As s'lowlnr ' the notoriety of tlio case
It may be stated as a fact that over seventy
jurymen stated that thelrnrejudlces wore too
strong to admit of their giving an impartial
decision In the case before a jury panel
could be obtained. The hearing of the evi
dence will begin to-morrow.

WASIII.VOTO.V , May 10. | Special Telegram
to the Bii.J : The civil service commission
ers nre rapidly discovering that they have
made n huge blunder when they designed
and adopted their recent plan for examining
candidates for promotion In the executive
departments hero. In an Interview with n
reporter Mr. Oberly declares that the pro
posed examinations arc not to bo schoolboy
contests nor technical Inquests , but are to bo
confined entirely to the duties of the posi
tions sought for. But , granting they nro to
bo so , the press nnd public come back nt
the commissioners with the statement that
the clerks have already shown their Illness
for those positions by the efliclent work they
have been doing for years , and why examine
those who have already shown their fitness
and elllclencyV This Is n poserto thecommls-
sion , and up to n late hour this evening
no answer has been formulated by the com
mission to this adamantine conundrum , and
while they are laboring at it , the storm of
abjurgatlon and protestations grows louder
and hotter , and the two commissioners who
devised the precious scheme are now the
most vehement lit wishing they hadn't been
and gone and done It with nutto , so much en
thusiasm. U Is estimated by a depaitmoiit
odiclal who Is said to bo in a position to
know , that at least seven-eighths of the old
government employes will IOMI their posi
tions under the new rules. Vacanclon , va
cancies , vacancies , and competitive exami
nations stretching out to the crack of doom
to correspond , the official day will neo.l to
have a portion of It set aside , like lunch
hour , for the purpose of competitive exami
nation. The uncertainty and appre
hension among government employes ,
the fear of losing their places not
because un lit for duty , but beauso of this or
that politics or because unable to answer mis
cellaneous questions of n hostile examiner
tend to demoralise the working force , making
It shitting , changeable and unreliable. The
capital city is injured as well as tlio govern
ment , because tlio employes will not make
permanent homes , any improvements or In
vestments here or become In any way Iden
tified with the city if tne terror of dismissal
on grounds which a most faithful perform
ance ot duty will not necessarily avoid is
constantly before them.

Two Chicago Failures Attributed to
the Inter-Statn Imw.
CHICAGO , May 10. [ Special Telegram to
ho BKK. ] Two barb wire fence nianutact-
irlng linns failed In this city to-day.
Sherman .t Marsh , 51 Dcarborn'strect , made
n assignment to Noble B. Judah. The lia
bilities are estimated at 3443,000 and the ns-
icts at 5250,000. The firm Is composed of
Francis T. Sherman and Ebon J. Marsh.
The firm of Schimbel & Co , , M Dca'sborn
street , next door to Sherman & Marsh also
oado an assignment to Mr. Judah. The Ha-
'littles ' are $303,000 and the assets S1S3,000.
The members of the firm are Ebon J. Schna-
belandEuonJ. Marsh , ( the same Marsh
hat Is In the firm ot Sherman & Marsh. )
"All 1 can say about It , " said Mr. Marsh.
'Is that we were relying upon
certain remittances with which to
uent obligations nnd these remittances were
lot forthcoming. There was nothing left
Tor us to do but to give up , so we made an
assignment. "
"Can you state , Mr. Marsh , what are the
cnu es of jour failure ? "
"Well , I suppose the Immediate cause of
the failure Is the operation ot the Inter-state
commerce act. That bill has had the effect
of simply shutting us out. Wo could not go
out of Chicago with our products and hope
to do business on antlhlng like a paying
basis. Tins is the Immediate cause of the
present trouble , but the truth Is the business
ias been anything but uiotitable for the last
three years. There hoi been too much over-
jrortuctlon In barb wire fencing. "
"We have made no "preferences of crod-
.tors , " said General Sherman , "nnd we have
decided on no plans yet. Nor have wo given
any judgment notes. We shall await the
action ot our creditors , before whom tl > e
state of affairs will bo .presented , and shall
then act according to their wishes and for the
best Interest of all concerned. "
Mr. Marsh , In answer to a question , sntd
the firm had been doing business for nine

The change In the condition has not been
unifoim thtotuhout tlio winter district , some
stales showinir an inctease and a majority n
slight decline and a few a heavy falling off.
The drought has reduced the acreage some
what in eastern gulf states , and wrought
very serious damage In Texas and Arkansas.
Tlio lowering condition during the month
10 and 10 points respectively. Favorable
tompeiaturo and seasonable rains
have Improved the prospect in
Tennessee , West Virginia nnd
Kentucky. The most serious reduction of
the month Is In Ohio where there Is a falling
off of eight points since April 1st due to the
continuing evil cirects of alternate freezing
und thawing noted in the last report and a
small crop Is now Inevitable. Michigan and
Indiana show a slight decline while In Illi
nois and Missouri there Is a gain of
ono point. The unfavorallo weather
