TOUONTO , May 17. ( Special Telegram to
the HKK.J Amid a scene of enthusiasm and
excitement unequalled since his arrival In
Canada , William O'Ltilcn arrived In Toronto
at 11 o'clock to day. The train from Mon
tf ; treal was a lew minutes late when It arrived
at the platform , but the sight which pre
sented itself as It drew up was Indeed an an
imated oii(3. ( Fully 3,000 men crushed and
struggled with each other to catch a glimpse
of thu gentleman as ho alighted from the
train , and the minds of those who accom
panied O'Urlcn were for a moment tilled , as
thev garcd upon those long lines ot stern
faces , with speculation as to whether they
wore friends or toos. But the moment
O'Brien showed his towering figure at the
door of the car all doubt was removed , for a
cheer went up that sooincd to shako thu very
air. In a moment O'Brien was surrounded
by hundreds of frlenda , and amid lines of
manly breasts and beaming faces , to the
music of a deafening chorus of Iilsh cheers ,
thu editor of United Ireland walked out to
the carriage which waited for him outside.
When the distinguished visitor took his seat
another deafening cheer rent the air , and
here , for the first time , some faint symptoms
of opposition began to show them
selves. A dilapidated Jehu , who had
In charge a bony beast that mournfully
dragged after his heels a broken down cart ,
howled out In a strong Ulster accent :
"Heigh for his Lalrdshlp of Lansdowne. " A
faint attempt at a cheer wont up from about
a score of tough-looking Individuals on the
outskirts of the crowd , but It was drowned
out by another hearty Irish hurrah. A few
attempts at hooting and hissing were made
as the driver gathered up hU reins. The po
lice arrangements were very elaborate , but
thu only requisition made of the services waste
to form an imposing array and add to the
pageantry of the procession. As O'Brien
and his ft lends diovo away , followed by sev
eral carriages filled with newspaper coire
spondents from alllimrts'ot the United States
and Canada , the Irish orator again received
a heart-stirring ovation. Hundreds of hats
and handkerchiefs were waived In tlio air ,
and cheer alter cheer went up. Then O'Brien
stood up In hla carriage and exclaimed :
"Three dicers for our friends In England
and tlio cause they are struggling for. " This
called for and received a hearty response ,
and then thucalvalcado of mounted police
men , with drawn sabres , surrounded
O'Brien's can lage , whllo a platoon of olll-
ccrs marched In front.
It may bo here stated that there are 800
policemen In Toronto at the present writing ,
and all night men have been ordered on
duty for tills oen ing's mcetlnir.
Through streets lined with smil
ing and cheering spectators tlio
procession moved on Its way to the Rossln
house on King street. The windows of
every house along the route were tilled with
spectators , and hundreds of whlto handker
chiefs i fluttered a tremulous applause as
O'llrien'H cariiago moved on.
The hotel was i cached without a sign of
hostility , If one exccpts an occasional hooter
or hiss from some member of an Oralitre or
anti-Irish lodge. At the hotel an immense
crowd awaited thu arrival. Here there were
moro decided symptoms of opposition and a
5ood deal ot hissing and hooting was in-
ulgcd.ln as the nationalists party dis
mounted and entered the hotel , whllo several
fisticuffs took place In the crowd on the side
walk. Somebody again called for cheers for
Lord Lansdowne , but the response waa
drowned by the turmultous applause that
greeted O'Brien from the great majority of
the crowd. The spacious rotunda of "tho
hotel was thronged with a cheering crowd ,
thiough which O'ltrlen walked , bowing as
ho went In reply to the congratulations and
salutations that were showered upon him
liom all sides. As O'Brien passed toward
tlio stairway leading ftotn the nail , his hands
were grasped and pressed by hundreds of
admirers , and one lady stepped forward and
presented him with a beautiful boqneU On
the llrst landing of the hall stalrwav ho was
presented with an address on behalf of the
united Irish societies of Toronto.
To this O'Brien responded , as follows : "I
assure you that not now for the Hist time or
fiftieth tlmo since I came to Canada have 1
had reason tor feelings of tlio deepest grati
tude foi tlio wonderful way In which our fol
low countrymen hero In Canada have rallied
around Mr. Kllbrldo and myself In this hour
of difllcnlty and trial. If I were to ll\o a
hundred vears 1 could never forget the sacri
fice and risks you have made in talcing sides
with us against a great and powerful lord.
We have come hero In behalf of hundreds ot
poor peasants whom that landlord's ty
ranny and cruelty has left homeless In Ire
land to day , far away In the villages of Lug-
gacurran. ( Cheers. ) I don't know what wo
deservu fordoing this. If the London Times
( hisses ) had its way I suppose It would bo
treason to love them and death to defend
them. But , thank God , the London Times Is
not going to have its way hero In To-
ion to nor anywhere else much longer.
( Cheers. ) When I speak of the heroism
which the peopln of Canada have displayed
In this matter , of course I do not refer to
mere tlueats of peisonal violence or attacks ,
because 1 take it that on this soil of Canada ,
at this day. no cltl/en of the Dominion Is
going to bo Intimidated from his lawtul
rights In the free expression of his opinion.
( Tumultous cheering. ) 1 don't reler to tlio
revolvers and knives and bludgeons that may
be brandished in the laces ot our country
men In Canada , but 1 refer to the far more
substantial risks which yon have to face in
ranging jouiselves on the side of justlco and
humanity against the governor general of
Canada to-day. ( Cheets and cries of "Wo
lire ready. " ) It Is easy enough and cheap
enough to llnd summer filctuls , but this Is a
matter which tests to thu coie the couragu
and sympathy of our people In Canada In thu
cause ol Ireland. " ( Great cheering. )
f Press ] Never In the worst daya of the
Belfast disorders was a KCOIIO ot more dis
graceful rowdyism exhibited than that shown
this afternoon in Queen's park , when a
crowd of Toronto Orangemen attempted to
btorm the platform , and , tailing In that , to
chokuolf all possibility of O'Urlon being
heard , by keeping up a continual din ot
groans , hissiiiL' , and cries of "God Save thu
Uueen" and "llille. Brlttnnla. " It was 4
o'clock when the crowd had about fully col
lected , and It then seemed a fair time to set
the number present at 15,000 , although the
people kept pouring In In such floods from
all quarters after the meeting had begun
that there were times when ' - u.ooo persons
would not bu an overestimate. Many of the
banks In the city were closed , and the stu
dents In the university were let U e. Many
of these with thu ciowds of des-
pcrate-looking 'roughs , whose only glory
In life seemed to bo a row or riot , \.eio or-
ganl/ed In a compact band and excited little
suspicion because they said never a word
until their tlmo came. The first demonstia-
tlon en me from a solitary man at the left
hand sldoof the " 'atform ' , who stood up on
the stump of a tree and began groaning at
the meeting and at those on thu platfoim as
though his life depended on thn effort. Near
him was u woman walvlnc a ureuu branch In
her hand , and no sooner had shu seen the
obstreperous Orangeman than she ran thu
but of the twig down his throat , which effect
ively choked off the disturber , amid a roar ot
applause from iho crowd and cries ot "Clod 1
Save Ireland , " A rush was made for the i
woman , but she was among her friends and i
a urulnii wave of thousands drove bick hui
would-be assailants. At this moment O'ltnen
entered the park In acanlage. One hun
dred and titty policemen , In charge of Lieu
tenant Colonel Urassott , were sc-tttrcd
through the crowd or drawn up In Illes on
the outskirts. Sergvant Sejinon : was in
charge of a squad of mounted men , and
when the disturbance and attempted break
ing up of the meeting took place , most
determinedly took their place and lom.ilned
there from beginning to end of both Mr.
O'Hrlcn's and Mr. Kilbrlde's speeches. The
policemen quietly folded their arms and said
not a word. In all , the disturbers did not
number more than sixty per ons , and many
of thorn were armed with sticks. The sy ca
ntor" trees In front of the platform were
taken possession of by a crowd of voung
roughs , who hissed Into the opeakor s facu
( luring the greater part of the time , until a
few powerful men among the nationalists
caught hold of the trunks of the trcca and
shook the disturbers to the cronnd.
This seemed to anger the Orantrumen ,
who knocked down one or two nation
alists with blows of their clubs.
The nationalists In return used their
lists very clfectively. Witli the exception of
a couple of charges by a single policeman on
horseback no attempt was madu to Interfere
with thu rioters. The Orangemen setup two
stump speakers to talk at the same tlmo as
O'Brien. They roared themselves hoarse
imld the frantic cheers and yells of the co
Attho close ot the speaking the follow Ins
osolutlon was passed amid outbursts of
cheering from thousands and groans of dis
sension from groups of Orangemen : "That
this meeting of citizens of Toronto
watmly sympathl/o with the mission of
William O'lJrien. M. P. , In Canada , and
take this opuortunity of entering a hearty
protest against the unjust and cuiul
reatmcnt of the tenants at Luggacurran by
Lord Lansdowne. "
With O'Brien's introduction began the
nostteirllic groaning , hissing , cheering and
loarso shouts that the day had so far wit-
.icssud. It miovlng his hat with the utmost
coolness , O'Hrldi surveyed the vast sea of
Taces before him for a moment. Ho then
DOan , amid the din and uproar , to speak as
follows : "Men of Toronto [ cries of 'God
save the queen , ' 'hurrah for Lansdowne , '
groans and Immense cheering ] , that cheer of
yours will ring around the world to-day
( cheers and hisses ] , and all the vocal talent
of Lord Lansdowno's friends cannot drown
It. Wo nro used to this sort of tiling In the
British Parliament. " ( Loud cheers ) .
A Voice "Three cheers fet Lanadowne. "
[ Groans , hisses and cheers ] .
Another Volce-"llurran for O'Brien. "
( Tremendous cheering and groaning ] .
Hero an Orangeman drew forth u heavy
stick and hit a man with it , Knocking him
down. Then there was a rush caused oy the
prancing of the horses of tlio mounted po
licemen , and the crowd scattered In all dl-
lections , many persons rushing for big heaps
of bricks whlcn were piled up In a Held close
by. They came back again , whether with
bricks or not did not Immediately appear.
O'Brian continued : " 1 am glad to see that
although Lansdowne has nothing to say him
self , ho has friends who are able to say some
thing. God help us. ( Derisive laughter ,
cheers and groans. ) We come to Canada tn
demand an answer to-day from either Lord
Lansdowne or his friends. Hero are bin
friends ( groans and hisses ) , two do/en of
them ( groans , cheers and cries of "brand
O'Hrien" ) whom a good policeman could
knockout In a tow minutes ( cheers ) If they
only wanted to. and the only answer they
can give for the high and mighty potentate
who has sent them hero Is cackling llko
geese or thu gioans ot a jack ass. ( Loud
laughter and cheers. ) They attempt to shout
down fieeilom of speech here to-day.
( Groans and cheers. ) Well , we generally
succeeded in putting down our enemies in
tlio house of commons ( cheers ) and we will
succeed In putting them down hero to-day.
( Tremendous applauso. ) 1 don't blame the
pool deludcdOrangemen who areiimklpg this
light to-day. ( Here a man was knocked down
by the blowofastickanda tren light followed
among the Oiangemm , who again set up A
dismal howling , ) We are to-day the party
of law and order and wo defy anybody to
deny it. " ( Cheers and groans. )
Several voices ciied "Brand O'Brien. "
'Thn ' heart ot Ireland la at your back , " cried
A. man from the O/angemen party here got
In front of the platform among the national
ists and began singing "Tho Boyne
Water. " Ills silk hat was crushed in by
those around him , and hu disappeared under
the platform , bruised and bloody , where ho
remained the balance ot the day ,
O'Brien continued In substance as follows :
"I am not sorry that the gentlemen of the
Toronto corporation have broken their con
tract , as Lord Lansdowne broke his , and
have retused us the hospitality of St. An-
diew'shall. There Is one hall , thank God ,
from which they cannot shut us out this
open vault of heavy , which the Great Archi
tect of the Universe has built and wo have a
n tale to tell which we need not be afiald or
ashamed to tell In the tree air of heaven
and In the open light of day. One thing
Is now , I think , certain , and that Is
that the Canadians command an answer to
the specific and terrible accusations wo have
made against him. An answer there must
Do or Lord Lansdowne stands condemned. I
think nobody reali/os moro keenly tnan Lord
Lansdowne to-day that the frothy declara
tions of the orators at Saturday's meeting
aru not an answer which will save Lord
Lansdowne from the condemnation of en
lightened and liberty-loving men.
The question Is and Lord Lansdowne
downo and his friends shall not bo
allowed to escape from it until they have an
swered It , If answer they can the question
Is whether Lord Lansdowne la earning out
the most cruel and inhuman system ot evic
tions In Ireland rather than yield to con
cessions which were suggested and recom
mended by arbitration authorised by his own
acent'i' And until that issue is honestly and
squarely met , Lord Lansdowue and his
friends are shrewd enough now at the last
moment to perceive that his cause will
bo simply damned by a display of plij slcal
and Intellectual rowdyism and Intolerance. "
( Loud applause. )
The speaker said ho did not blame the Or
angemen for their foolish tin eats , but ho did
blame the London Times and Daily Tele
graph for tholr incitements to violence. It
was duo to the Canadian spiiit In favor of
tree speech , that their bloody councils had
not been followed.
Dennis Kllhrido , the evicted tenant , also
spoke and arraigned tlio action of both Lord
Lansdovvno and tlio Orangemen in severe
terms. O'Brien was then driven from the
park , tlio carrlaeu being escorted by a body
of mounted policemen. Ho was cheered all
The Toronto branch of the National league
gave a banquet to O'Brien this evening at
Rossln house. Moro than fluO ot the most
prominent Irishmen in the city sat down.
POSING FOR P1UTUKISS.
Scandalous Conduct or Young Girls
( u n Now York Grammar School.
Nr.w YOIIK , May 17. ( Special Telegram
to the Bii-Tho : : Now York World
says a scandal waa revealed yesterday
affecting two girls , who until the present
week were pupils In the grammar schoolNo.
28 , Fortieth street , between Seventh and
Klghth avenues. These scholars , neither of
whom Is > ct fifteen years old , had posed as
subjects for photographs of an Immoral char
acter. Miss Fisher , teacher of tlio second
grade , recently surprised one of the cirls
with one of these pictures , and shortly after
that , Miss Finch , of the sixth grade made a
simllai discovery. Meanwhile another pupil
complained to her mother of the prevalence
of immoral talk among the gills , and also re
potted that the pictures were In circulation.
The lather of the girl , who is a reporter on
a morning newspaper , wai so Incensed that
he commenced a private investigation to
hud out at what photograph gallery
the pictures had been taken. The
leporter succeeded In getting proot that they
canio from the establishment ot
Chapman it Willis , ' . ' 75 Sixth ave.
and that of a vv mau named Becker , 503
Klglith avenue. One of the girls said she had
visited Chapman & Willis' place to have soum
tintypes taken and that one of the proprie
tors Induced her under promise of receiving
some copies of the pictures to pose In a num
ber of dilfurent positions with her garments
moro or less disarranged. The photographer
told the repot ter that ( he girls visited his
place together and told him they w ro mem-
tvrs of a theatrical troupe. Under threat ot
nirest and prosecution the negatives of all
pictures were turned over to the Irate father
and they were destroyed. One of the girls ,
who would have graduated next Christmas ,
has tx-cn expelled and has been sent Into the
country with relatives. The other who haa
been In school less than a year , has been
placed In a convent and bar mother lies In a
precarious condition having suffered from
nerv ous prostration and h ) sterla as a result
of the disgrace. - The elrl against whom the
charge was preferred for using Immoral Ian-
imago has been withdrawn Irom the school.

scenes took place , causing consternation in

of very eccentric disposition.
From the evidence given the court yesterday
by seven witnesses , of course testifying

cannons. A complete arsenal was estab

Nnvv YOIIK , May 17. In the 1'aelUo ratl (

broker , John 1'cndlr , was on the stand , Pen *
dlr vM'iit o\ct the old story of the Credit Mo- '
blllor and tools occasion to vindicate Oakes
Ames , sai Ing that hu was an honorable imxtv
and was killed by the Infamous stories told ?
concerning him. 1'endlr attempted to show
the connection of Ulaluo with the Credltf
Moblllcr. He said that when Tom Scott-
was elected president ot the Union
1'aclllc , Scott told witness that ho had eighty- ,
two bonds which belonged to Blalno which/
the Union I'acilic would have to pay.
Jay Gould was next placed on thu stand )
and told at length the history of his con-1
nectlon vvltlitho Union 1'aclllc. Gould said )
his books containing accounts of all trans
actions were at the service of the commission.
When the pool agreement of lb79 was ex
hibited , ho recalled the fact of Its existence
and acknowledged signing for over 811,000-
000 securities. Ilia books would show what
he paid for them. They were entered at SO.
The only way ho saw out of thodllllculty was1
to take the mass of securities In one man's
hand and Issue consolidated mortgage bonds
as a piullmluary step to placing the ,
property on Its feet. Ho agreed trf
accept HO for his pool securities. A gooOV
many tli < milit that price too low. Unstamped
bonds had a better Hen than stumped
and their value was fixed at M ) . It was soonj
demonstrated that this pool agreement woulcT
not carry , and the consolidated moitgager
was determined upon between April , 1878 ,
and May , 1S1U. Thu object ot thu consol- ,
( dated mortgage was to consolidate the
lictrcogcneous mass of securities under one
unlfoim security. Thu most ot these bonds
were held by Ames and himself. Ho thought
nocents was a fair price for his 82,000,000 or )
stamped Income bonds , and that was the
price ho took for all ho had In the pool. At
the tlmo of the consolidation he owned
40 , : )0 ) shares of Union I'acilic , wortli 1)i )
and27,000 wotth OS. Tlio latter wits hit- , }
mensely valuable property but had bcon
badly managed. Ho presumed the reason hd' S
bought the Income bonds was because they
were a Hen on tlio eastern end of the road-
Its most valuable portion. Ho bouuht
of Amsterdam people and paid tor
S',000.000 worth of Deuyr 1'aclflo bonds.
Hu believed the price was 74 , which was tlio
price ho sold them to Mr. Sage. Tlio roada
east from Omaha wore toicing the Untou
I'acihc to pro rate , and it was tound neces
sary to got an outlet by the Hannibal iVt St.
Joe and the Wabash & Southern roads so aa
to prevent this , 'lliat we- what made these
acquisitions desirable to the Union I'acilic.
In addition to the stock ho held to the time
of tlio consolidation , Gould said ho owned A
per rent consolidated bonds of the Kansas
I'acihc to the amount of S2OootOJ , ami
Union I'acihc collateral Gs in the 'sum or
81,000.000. On the 1st of .January , 1B79 , he
owned 170,000 shares of Union I'acilic stock.
A little moro than n vear later ho was clear
on the books ol the Union I'acilic railroad.
There was a law In Massachusetts which al
lowed anybody holding any claim airainsta
railroad to attach .stock , Hu put It out of hiu
name bccauso a claim had been trumped
up and his stock was to bo attached
and destroyed as collateral. It was re-
transferred to him after the consolidation.
Gould said on thu supreme court decision on
the Thnrman bill hu made up his mind lie
had better have several thousand stock
holders. It was for his Interest to put the
stock out , as the consolidation had advan'ced
its value twenty points. While Genera !
Dodge and Solon Humphries were engaged
In ascertaining a proper basis for thu con-
solldition , witness puichased the Missouri
I'acilic in order to protect the Kansas Pacllie ,
and became adverse to the consolidation.
He offered his check lor 81,000,00011 they
would not ask him to consent to this con
solidation. They kept wituesa m his olllco
until ho signed tno paper agreeing to carry
the consolidation through , He thought
this paper was now in Boston. That he
was to bo madn a dliector in the new com
pany was not determined upon at the tlmo
no signed the paper. It was desirable to put
in the Denver I'acilic stock of which ho had ,
? 1,000.000 worth , bought at 10 cents. Witness
told Holmes If ho could not an order of the
court releasing It ho would put It In at moro ,
than It was worth 8VX,000. ) The trustees
would got nothing if this stock had not been
released , for the bonds would have been fore
closed and thu stock could not have entered
Into the consolidation. What witness did' '
In the matter was the best possible thing for
the trust , and he was willing to stand by hla
In answer to Commissioner Anderson's
question regaidlng the handling of thu Den-
vei 1'aclllc stock trust , Gould replied vigor
ously , gesticulating violently. Ho seemed
greatly Incensed at the Imputation of n dis
honorable deal between Sago and himself' '
with reference to this trust. Adjourned.
