William O'Brien ' Presents the Evils of
Eviction at Montreal.
A Grand Reception in the Land of
the Cruel Pcor Exciting Times
Anticipated on Arrival
at Toronto.
O'llrlon at Montreal.
Mo.vriuui. , May 11. William O'Brlon.od-
llor of United Ireland , arrived hero this
morning. His journey was without Inci
dent. At St. Johns , Quebec , a deputation
from the Montreal National league boarded
tlio train. An immense crowd was present
on the arrival of the train In this city , who
cheered lustily as O'Brien stepped on the
platform. An address of welcome was read
by tno president of the National league of
O'Brien In reply thanked his fellow-coun
trymen for their hearty reception and pre
dicted from this auspicious beginning the
success of his mission. Ho then went on to
say : " 1 came not to offer offense to any section
or class of the Canadian people. Quito tlio
contrary. I came not to meddle with Cana
dian affairs : ne > t to deal with the career of
Lord Lansdowne as governor general , but as
tlio exterminator of five hundred human be
ings luioans ] . Tnis being a free country wo
cannot expect everybody to agice with us ,
but I believe wo have such strength of justice
and truth on our side that when all have
heard our story all will bo convinced , and
that the Canadian people will stretch out
their hands and save the lives and property
of these live hundred poor tenants
of Luggacurran , for botli are at
this moment at your mercies
and in your hands. " There was a tremendous
rush to shake hands with O'Brien at the con
clusion of the speech.
From the complete success In every -way
attending thn meeting this evening , at
which Editor William O'Brien of United
Ireland , delivered Ills addicss against Lord
Lansdowne , most of the rumors have been
discredited regarding anything In the nature
ot a disturbance , so far , at all events , as this
city is concerned. Tlio meeting was held
under the auspices of the local branch of the
lilsli National league. The hall which Is
capable of accommodating 2,000 people , was
filled by an enthusiastic audience , amongst
whom was n large representation of Frencli
Canadians. During several stages ot the ad-
diess. Lord Lansdowuet's name was hissed ,
O'Brien's appearance on the platform was
the signal ( or an outburst ot cheers , which
lasted several minutes. O'Brien said : "My
first dutv Is to thank the pcoplo of Mon
treal , and from the bottom of my heart
1 do , for the extraordinary kindness I have
received since I entered their beautiful city ,
both from those who aereo with mo and
fiom those who perhaps differ from me.
1 desire at the outset to tackle the ques
tion , why I have come to Canada to nsk a
hearing and to ask your sympathy. I will
tell you In ono word because the homes of
the poor people In Luggacurran. far away
In Ireland , are desolate to-night , because the
man wtio Is responsible for It , Is here In the
highest post of honor In this great tree land.
I am only a stranger , no doubt , and Lord
Lansdowne Is a very creat , rich lord , but ,
Judging by the fooling I have experienced ki
Montreal , to-day , I don't think 1 need apolo
gize , for coming hero In our hour of need to
claim your sympathy and your assistance to
save the suffering tenantry of Ireland from
extermination , and an extermination of
many of the Canadian governor gcneial. It
Is no pleasure to us to worry you with our
grievances , but where else are wo to turn ,
when Lord Lansdowne. sends soldiers and
armed police , to dlsposess every tenant In
Luggacurran and to tllng the old men and
children out Into the ditches ? Our enemies
are not content with disarming us In a physi
cal sense. The tory government are passing
coercion bills tluough parliament , at this
moment , to disarm us even of our organiza
tion , to break down the only protection the
tenantry of Ireland have left and to place
us on a plank bed , If wo attempt to aupeal te
public opinion against the cruel deed !
ol Lord Lansdowno. The whole countrj
may bu swept clear and plunged into wretch
edncss and sorrow , but it will bo a crime Co :
us to organize a public meeting , or to wrlti
an article In a newspaper denouncing It
Where then are wo to turn If not to publh
opinion of kindred lands. Or is it to be i
crime also lor us to appeal to you , our coun
trymen and our kindred ? You can save tin
tenantry of Lugisacurran and youulonocai
Have them from i'ato that overtook , peihapa
the fathers of many a man , listening to me
long ago In great clearances when landlord
had all their own way In Ireland. If wi
come to Canada to ask von to befriend n
and to save our pcoplo , it Is becaus
this is not the lirst time tha
Canada lias stood between the Irish poopl
and their oppressors. Our great leader. Par
ncll , has said ho never again would beg tn
world for alms for Irish landlordism. W
are now begging , not tor alms , but to enabl
us to uproot that whole system of Irish land
lordlsm. Wo do not como to ask you fc
i-JO.OOO lor charity any more , but to ask yo
to consider what use Lord Lansdowne 1
making of the ' .20,000 H year which you giv
him , or which you enable him to get ; and I
that bo put to bad and Inhuman use , wo as
you to convey your censure of Lord Lan1
dowue , as you have a rlsrht to do , as the eltl
zensof a self-governing nation. The da
you send Lord hansdownu homo with th
stamp of Canadian dissatisfaction on hi
orow , you will enable us to laugh nt coerclo
and strengthen tno arms of Gladstone. , to pu
an end to evictions for all time.
Mr. O'Brien then quoted from lengthy re
ports in the Dublin Freeman's Journal of ovi <
lions on Lord Lansdown's estate. Ho thei
described Incidents attending some of th
evictions , in which the aged , Intirm and sic
were thrown out of their calling , helpless li

ran tenants were honest , peaceful and inof
fenslve , so far as crime Is concerned. Th
locality Is simply stainless. During thes

overdone tnat they should deserve to bo rol

that when Cnnada stretches out an ar

glowing picture of Itcland's gratitude to Cai
mta wheu home rule should be achieved , an
he was cheered again and again , Heio
leaving the hotel for the meeting O'Brlt

and before the meeting opened , O'Brien dru
up the following resolution , which , alter I
had concluded his address , was pa-sed am
an outburst of cheering :
u Resolved , That tills meeting of cltl/ens
Montreal Is ot the opinion that Loid Lai' '
downo's contemplated depopulation of Lu ,

O'Brien will speak In Quebec on May !

Magnificent Outlook For Enormous
Harvests of heading Cereals.
ST. PAUL , Mav 11. Crop reports troni
sixty counties in Minnesota , forty in Dakotc
and thirty-live in Iowa , show that seedlnc
hroughout the northwest Is now completed
and under the circumstances more favorable
than in any previous season tor years. Fall
weather only Is needed to produce anothei
nagnllicont crop of wheat , am.
.t the present Indications hold good
barring , of course , all accidents of weather ,
the crops harvested next lull will ecllpsi
anything ever produced In Minnesota nm
Dakota. The acreage in Minnesota las' '
year as reported bv the agricultural depart
ment , was 3,007,851 acres , with an average o :
13.9 bushels er acre , making a total crop o
J'-.S.V.OOO bushels. The Increase In the statt
this year will probably amount to 5 per center
or at > oiit 175,000 acres. In Dakota the gov
eminent returns stiow 2,075iSO : acres , averag
ing 11.4 bushel * per acre , giving an aggre
gate ot H0,704ooo bushels. The Increase In
acreage this year will probably bn as liign as
15 per cent , or about 400,000. Taking into
consideration the more favorable condltlor
of the ground at seeding time , and with ar
average yield Dakota will probably raise ovei
B5,000,000 bushels this year. So , will
anything like favorable weather from nov
till harvest , the total yield of Minnesota am
Dakota combined will aggregate betweoi
80,000,000 and W.000,000 bushels. In lowi
seeding was completed about ten days earlle
than usual , and reports are unanimous as t <
the excellent condition of tno ground. Ac
cording to reports received from the mon
Important counties there Is a decrease li
acreage of wheat in many places , ewlng ti
the low prices last year and tear of chincl
bugs. The acreage of corn , oats and barlo ;
In Dakota this year Is much greater than eve
befoie , many counties leuortlng fully 50 pe

What Tories Arc Do Inc.
Iij ; James < 7onl < mIcmiclt. . ]
LONDON , May 11. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to the Bin : . ] The tones aio
makln ; much ado over the factlousesa of the
Irish members of the slxlcon-honrs'session on
Monday , that of yesterday and the continu
ing ono of to-day. Yet their struggles are ac
complishing much. Once , lately , the speaker
has refused to apply the cloture , saying that
it would cut elf discussion on six pending
amendments. This was a virtual acknowl
edgement of their Importance. The
Irish amendments to the crimes
bill are making fair progress.
Secretary Balfour , with , of course , some ex
aggeration , asserted that only eleven lines
of the bill had been disposed of In tour days.
Ho forgets that he and his colleagues arc
mainly responsible for the manner in which
some amendments have been wrangled over.
The nationalists , from the lirst , have asked
the ministers to state what changes they
would accept , but Instead ot answering In a
straightforward manner , they Invariably
tenced with thclropponents and so provoked
the loquacity they professed themselves anx
ious to prevent.
HOME IIULI : co.vmssioNs.
As has been pointed out In the houno , there
Iscompleto justification for the Parnellltoj
tactics whlcl1. brought about the altered as
pect of the eleven lines referred to. They
have been changed very materially In phra
seology , and the benefit which will thereby
bo secured to the Irish Is expected to be enor
mous. These advantages are still accruing.
No matter how much the ministers object at
lirst , they Invariably end by conceding some
thing. The home rulers are delighted , of
course , with their success and
encouraged to now struggles. Tlio
proceedings In this direction are
instructive. Point alter point has either
been reluctantly conceded or withdrawn on
the understanding that discussion should bellowed
llowed at a more convenient stage of de-
ate. While tills state of affairs exists , and
ivhllo the opponents of the measure arc
trlvin ? to prevent Its becoming an instru
ment of torture , it is dlflicult to conceive
what excuse the government will give for
tutting on the gag more vigorously or for
getting rid of amendments without discus-
Ion at all.
"It Is Important , therefore , for Iilsh-Amer-
cans , " said a liberal meinb'er of paillamcnt
o mo to-day , "to fully understand the pro
gress that the hand-to-hand lieht which now
lealv , then O'Connor and Sexton , are mak-
ng at every parliamentary blow , and well
lid O'Brien , In his spirited speech at his re
ception as cabled to-day from Now York , saj
hat the American support of our cause and
of our leader Parnell has brought victory
ivlthin sight. "
coitMr.NTiNo ox o'nniKX.
By the way , several papeis have Ion ? spec
als from New York , about O'Urion's pro
gress. These cables are made the object o :
newspaper comments. The principal loadei
this evening of the tory St. James Gazotti
lias for a heading , "Mr. O'Brien's Tour.1
The Gazette rejoices over the behavlo
of the passengers toward "the propagatior
of sedition and disorder , " as It calls It , am
toward this "amateur in treason. " It char
acterfzes O'Brien's tour as "an outrageoui
attempt to bully us Into surrender. ' ' Tin
Gazette suggests : "It might bo expedient
von if it Is cowardly , to buy elf a rufllai
witli a bribe , out It would bo the height ol
folly to pay blackmail with the uncertalnt ;
that the same contortionist will confront yoi
ten paces further along the road with a now
request to stand aim deliver. "
The Gazette suggests that the Canadlai
government arrest O'Brien. These are it
words : "Mr. O'Brien's tour seems calcu
lated to lead directly to an Irish rebellion it
Canada , and perhaps to fenlan raids boyom
the frontier , and If the Dominion govern
ment decides to avert this risk by refuslai
to allow the orator to hold his meetings , tlio ;
would certainly not bo going beyond thel :
rights. No government , though we seem t
have torgotteu It here , Is bound'to permit re
bell Ion to bo preached openly. "
The tory Standard sneers at O'Brien's re
ceptlon and his tour. This Is how I
chuckles : "His voyage , to use the gent !
form of the Now York Herald , was not oiv
of unmixed pleasure. "
The tory Glebe heads Its lone leaders thus
"O'Brien the Bravo , " and affects to E
humorous over his reception. It says : "H
was like another William who stumbled an
fell at Povenspy. " It forgot to continue th
application any further and to add that till
William was soon surnamed "Tho Con
quercr. " Keferrlng to the steerage cheer
1'or Gladstone , the Glebe exults over the fae
thot his name was thus banded In an ol
jectlonablo rqw and was set up in opposltio
to tliu queen's name when calls were mad
for cheers for her majesty.
How Canada will treat O'Urien Is the pri
vailing topic of conversation In the lobuk
of the house of commons and In the politic ;
club. This evening I was assured by a KO\ \
eminent olllclal that the cabinet was I

was grossly Insulted. For a time there wi
a likelihood of a scene which might have 1 <
to consequences o ! an unpleasant characl
to those who orcanl/cd it. The Incident
shows how serious are the difficulties In
O'Urion's path. He was warned at
the outset that tbo mission which
ho chivalrously undertook was fraught
with personal danger , but the bravo
Irish heart , that never knew fear , was not to
be daunted. The mere ruffianism of snmo
of the Umbria saloon passengers may bu
succeeded by more serious violence originat
ing In Canada , but whatever the perils before
him , O'Brien Is not the man to bo turned
asldo from his mission of truth and justice. "
Mrs. Michael Davltt last evening made her
appeaianco as a vocalist at a concert In the
aid of tlio schools. Slio has a pure , clear so
prano voice , with emphatic tenderness of ex
pression. To the accompaniment of a violon
cello by Dr. Cruece , she sanic "Ave Maria , "
for a recall , the national song , "O'Don-
ncll. " Also in the second part of the
programme she sang "The Wearing of
the Green , " which was vociferously encored.
She followed with "Tho Star Spangled Ban

several professional musicians assisted and
tlio receipts were large. The extravagant
enthusiastic greeting ot Mrs. Davltt's ren
dering of the line , "For Pat to

veiling of tliu Garlicld statute to-morrow at-
tornoun , said to-day that the delegation from
his stain In tliu republican convention next
.summer would bo solid for Senator Sherman
for president , and that It would not be for
Blalno for the nomination , oven if Sherman
should not bo a candidate , because It was not
believed Blalno was as strong as other men
who were available. Ho thought Dlaluo's
personal following was just as numerous and
ardent as It ever was in Ohio , but there was a
tear that he ought not to be nominated again.
However , should Itlaluu bu nominated , ho
would be elected. Governor Forakcr , ho
said , would bo nominated ar.d re-elected.
Ho did not believe Foraker had any Idea of
aspiring to the presidency ,
When asked In reference to the delivery of
his oration , and what he thought of being
limited to twenty minutes , General Kclfer
said ho had prepared an address ar.d In-
.tended to deliver It , and had no thought of
there being any feeling as to Its length. Ho
did not know how long he. . would want to
make his speech , but thought ho would bo al
lowed to linlsh It when once ho began. It Is
stated that his oration occupied between
5,000 and 0,000 words , and will consume
nearly an hour and a hall In delivery. It Is
stated by a member of the committee on oration
tion that a battery has been ordered near the
place where the oration Is to bo delivered and
instructions given to be in firing a salute
at 2 o'clock. The exercises commence at
10. : ! As General Sheridan and the president
will say a few words , and there will be music
afterward and before the otation is begun ,
scarcely twenty minutes will be given Gmi-

and sav tlio.orders given for tint salute are
Intended to forcibly cut off the orator. No
ono doubts this for an instant. In fact ,
members ot the committee .say it Is intended
that ho shall comply with the orders and

ho does not do so of tils own volitatlon ho

The Mexican Army Raiders.
WASIIINOTON , May 11. The department
of state has not been ofllcially informed of
the Intention of the Mexican authorities to
execute the three army officers for illegally
crossing the border of Nogales. and publica
tions to that effect have caused considerable
surprise , as the penalty Is resardcd as on-
tlre'ly dlsnroDortlonate to the offense. Still ,
in the absence of any olllclal Information on
the subject , the department can take no ac
tion looking to an Intervention In favor of
the condemned olllcers.
Secretary Bayaid sent a telegram to Minis
ter Manning stating that repoits concerning
the execution of the Mexican army oft leers at
Nogales have been most conflicting since the
( ith lust. ; that his telegram announcing an
appeal is just received with satisfaction ; that
thlsgovcinment would view with deep ro-
giet the imposition of a penalty so extreme ,
and Instructs him to say that mitigation
would bo regarded by us with favor.

orable gathering at tlioTenbroeck-Mulllo Me-
Caithy race. The licld was op'en to the pub
lic and It looked like about one-halt' the big
commonwealth ot Kentucky had been
dumped down there. In the grand stands
the gay customs of the ladles' of the north
end and the fluttering of their fans atloided
a pleasant contrast to the mass of humans
packed together like sardines over all the
other space available. There must have been
3 ' ,000 people present. General Hoblnson , ot
Lexington , Colonel Gicon , of St. Louis , anil
Colonel M. howls Clark were the judges.

The crowd grow nervous waiting for thn
big event ot tno day , and there was a iiuir-
mer of applause when Colonel Clark ranc
the bell lor the Derby. Jim Gore was
lirst out ot the paddock. Ho gal
loped by the stand slowly and wni
greeted with cheers. His toroleet were
u rapped in led llanuel and ho appeared Btlff.

fornlan looked well and attracted much at
tention. When Hanbur4 appeared , however ,
lilt was greeted with loud cheers , showing
where most ol the money was. Ho looked
line and his hackers were confident. TJio
Iriends of 1'endennls were also quite enthu
siastic. Lucky Baldwin had said before the
racti ho was a Hotter horse than Gollah , and
that was conclusive enough to many when
got within range of the circulation of the
statement. Out of the original 11' ' . ) entries ,
there were only seven starters. These were :
Banbtirir , who was ridden by lllaylock , Jaco
bin , ( Stoval ) , Clarion ( Arnold ) , Montrose
( Lewis ) , 1'endennls ( Mutphy ) . Jim Gnru
( Fit/patrlck ) , and Banyan ( Godfrey ) . The

They stalled out of the chute and Billy

"they're oil" wont un simultaneously from
thousands of throats In the grandstand.
Jacobin lead off , followed closely by Ban

An they swerved Into the stretch Banyan

a good second , and Jacobin third. Down

and the other son of Kin : : Ban third. Pen-
dounis was sixth and Jacobin had dropped
back to last place. At the cud of the milo
the positions were not materially changed.
Jim Gore seemed to falter , nut gathered him
self up and moved up to third place at the
three-quarter pole. Thorn Montrose
still leu. Banyan alongside ot
Gore , and Banhurg second. They whirled
Into the stretch and Flt/.palHclc was
seen to bu urging the popular sou of Hindoo.
As they came around the turn Pendennis
threw up his tall and gave up. He seemed to
bo clear out of form and ran a miserable race
from beginning to end. Montrose still led ,
to the surprise of all. Flt/.patriek had been
Instructed to win with Jim Gore II ho had to
kill tno colt , and as ho laid on the lash In
the stretch the horse was plainly scon to bo
limping. Lewis gave Montrose the rein , as
It was nip and tuck between the two for a
moment , but the former held on nobl" and
mssod under the string a winner by two
ongths , Jim Gore second. Ho had led
with apparent case from the craud
stand without a touch of the whip ,
and looked ahlo to go another quarter. Ja
cobin was third , Banburg , favorite , fourth ,
Clarion fifth , Banyan sixth , and Pondernls
last. Jim Gore was limping terribly at tliu
finish , and It Is thought he will never bo aid 3
