KXKOUTIVK MANSION , WASHIMITC N.
July 4 , ItW The Hon. bavld It. Francis.
Mayor and Chairman My Dear Sir : When
1 received the extremely cordial and gmtl1- !
ing Invitation from citizens of St. Louis ten
dered by a number of her representative-men
to visit that city during the national encamp
ment of tliti G. A. It. , 1 had been contitiuplat-
ing for some time tlio acceptance of the Invi
tation from that organisation to the same
e licet , and had considered the pleasures
which It would alford mo If it should be.
possible ro tncU nut only tlie members of the
G. A. It. , but the people of St , Louis and
other cities In the west which the occasion
would give me opportunity to visit. 'Ihe ex
actions of my public duties I felt to bo so un
certain. however , that when first confronted
by the delegation of which you were the head 1
expected to do no more at that time than to
promise the consideration of the double In
vitation tendered me and express the pleas
ure It would give mo to accept the same
thereafter , If possible. But the cordiality
and sincerity of jour piesentation , re-en
forced by the heartiness of the people who
mirround you , so Impressed me that I could
not resist the feeling which prompted me to
assure you on tlio spot that I would b with
vou nnd the Grand Army of the Kepubllc at
the time designated If nothing happened in
the wean 11 mo to absolutely prevent my leav
ing Washington.
Immediately upon the public announce
ment of his conclusion , expressions emanat
ing Irom certain Important members of tlie
Grand Army of the Republic , nnd Increasing
In volume nnd virulence constrained me to
review my acceptnnce of these Invitations
The expressions referred to go to the extent
of declaring that 1 would bean unwelcome
guest at the time and place of the national
encampment. This statement is based.
us well as i can judge , upon
certain otliclal acts of tnlno In
volving Important public Interests , done
under the restraints and obligations ot my
oath of ofllso , which do not appear to accord
with the wishes ot some memliors of the
Grand Army ot tbo Republic. I refuse to
believe that tins organl/itlon ! , founded upon
patriotic Ideas , composed very larccly ot
men entitled to lasting honor and considera
tion , niul whose crowning glory It should bo
that they are American citizens as well as
veteran soldiers , deems It a part of its mis
sion to compass any object or purpose by ut-
temptlng to Intimidate the executive or co
erce those charged with making and execut
ing the laws , but the expic&slons to which I
have referred Indicate such n prevalence of
unfriendly leellng , and such a menace to an
occasion which should bo harmonious , peace
ful and cordial , tlmt they cannot be Ignored.
1 beg you to understand that 1 am not con
scious of any act of mine which
should make mo fear to meet the Grand
Army of the Republic or any other assem
blage of my fellow citizens. The account of
my official stewardship Is always ready for
presentation to my fellow countrymen.
I should not bo frank If 1 failed to confess ,
while disclaiming all resentment , that I have
been hurt by the unworthy and wanton
attacks upon mo growing out of this matter
and the icckless manner In which my actions
nud motives have been misrepresented , both
pnbllclj and privately , for which , however ,
the Grand Army of the Hepubllc.as n body , Is
by no means responsible. The threats of
personal violence and harm In case 1 under
take tlio trip In question , which scores of
misguided , unbalanced men , nndei the
stimulation of excited feeling , hiivu made ,
are not oven considered. Katlier than aban
don my visit to the west nnd disappoint your
citizens , 1 might , If 1 alone were concerned ,
Hubmlt to thn insult to which It Is quite
openly asserted 1 would bo helplessly sub
jected If present nt the encampment ; but 1
should boar with mo there thn people's
highest office , tlio dignity of which 1 must
protect , nnd 1 believe that neither the Grand
Army of thu HupubliniiH nn organization , noi
anything like n majority of its members
would evei encourage anv .scandalous attack
upon It. If , howev er , among the membership
of this body tliero are some , ns certainly
seems to bo the case , determined to denounce
mo and my olllclnl nets at the national en
campment , I believe they .should bo premit-
teu to ito so unrestrained by my presence as
a guest of their oiganiiatlon , or as a guest of
tlio hospitable city In which their meeting Is
held. A number of Grand Army posts hav o
BlRnlflcd their Intention , 1 mil Informed , to
remain away from the encampment In case 1
visit the city at that time. Without consid
ering the merit of such nn excuse , I feel that
1 ought not to bo the cause of such non-
nttendanco. The time nnd plnco of the en
campment were fixed long before my invita
tions were received. Those desiring to par
ticipate in its proceedings should be nrst
regarded , and nothing should bo permitted
to Interfere with their intentions.
Another consideration ot more Importance
than all others remains to be noticed In tact
was referre I to by vou , when you verbally
presented the Invitation ot tha citizens of
St. Louis- that the coming encampment of
Ihe Grand Army of the Republic would be
tlio hist held In n southern Mate. I suppose
this fact was mentioned as a pleasing indica
tion of tlio fraternal feeling fast gaining
ground thioughout the entire land , and
hailed bv every patilotlc cltlvonnsnn earnest
that the union has really and in tact been
saved In sentiment nnd spirit , with all the
benefit * it vouchsafes to a united people. 1
cannot rid mvself of the belief tlmt the
least discord on this propitious occasion
might retard tlie progress of the sentiment of
common brotherhood which tlio Grand Army
ol tlie Republic has so good an oppmtunlty
to IncreiihO and foster. I certainly ought
not to bo the cause of such discord In any
ov ut or UIHIII anv pretext.
It seems to mo that vou and the citizens of
St. Louis u ro entitled to this unreserved
statement of the conditions which have con
strained me to forego my contemplated visit
and to withdraw my acceptance of your In-
\ llatlon. My presence In your city at the
ttmo jou have Indicated can be of but little
moment compared with the Importance of
Ilia cordial and harmonious cnurtatument
of jour other ituesU. 1 ngum you that I
abandon my plan without the least personal
finding , except regret , constrained tlieicto by
u sense of duty , actuated by a destro tosivt ;
any embarrassment to tlm people of St ,
l < nnls or their expected euests , and with n
heart full of giateful appreciation of the
hlncero nnd unatteitcd kindness of your citi
zens. Hoping the encampment may bo an
occasion of much metnltiiMs , and that If
proceedings may Illustrate thn nlehos !
patriotism of American citizenship , 1 am
jours % .cry sincerely ,

PLEADINGFORPOSTPOJJEMENT
Gladstone Opposes the Third Reading of
the Coercion Bill ,
HE DENOUNCES THE MEASURE
Ami Inquires What the Tories Can
yc to Warrant Sucli an
Invasion of the Pee
ple's Liberties ,
GlaclRtono'H Great 1'lon.
LONDON. July 7. In tha commons to
night on the motion being made lor the third
reading of the crimes bill , Gladstone , nmld
prolonged cheers , made a counter motion
tlmt the bill bo rend a third time this day
three months. Gladstone said the bill was a
conservatUo alternative to home rule , and
therefore bore a dllTeront aspect from and
ordinary coercion bill. The old coercion
measure ! ] had been aimed at crlmo only , but
this new ono , passing beyond crime , was
aimed at societies. | Ciles of "HearI"
Hear 1" I Further , the bill had been brought
in without any foundation , such asunder-
laid all former coercion bills , based on tlio
existence of exceptional crime. Balfour had
disregarded all precedents requiring that tlio
Introduction of coercion measures be prefaced
by a statement of exceptional crime.
Gladstone maintained that tlie Increase of
crime In IbSO over 18 5 , In view
of the agricultural dlbtrcss In Ireland , was
exceedingly small. Comparing the olllcl.ils
ot the tory government In power In Ireland
in lbS.j with those In power the first live
months In lbS7 , there was a marked decrease
! Iu the amount of agrarian crime , jctln lt&5
they had refrained from Introducing a
coercion measure from motives of policy. A
comparison ot past and present statistics
afforded no shadow of justification for the
present measure. Another contrast was that
past parliaments had been nearly unanimous
In assenting to coercion , while tills bill was
opposed by a large minority In the house
and by a majority ot the people ot the country
a majority that w.is not likely to diminish.
ICheers.l If paili.uiieut retained any regatd
for the traditions of libetty or of
> arty usages , the measure would bo
ibandoned. AVIiat could they uigo
o warrant such an invasion of thu people's
IbertlesV While resenting the imputation
li.it the llbernis had done the same tiling , hu
vould admit that pist measures li.ul been
: alliues. Among the differences of tha pist
mid present was the oxtr.ioidlnary piopos.il
making the vlceioy master of the wliolo law
mil the right of association. In the present
century such a mouosal was an outrage on
every principle of public duty. Moreover ,
new officers were created under the measute.
The attorney general tor Ireland had ad
mitted , and it was too late to deny , th.it tlie
bill was aimed nt the buppiession ol e\clu-
sUe dealings. Tint was far more paidonablo
In the weak and poor than In the rich and
powerful , but it was the c.xcliisl\o
[ ( eatings ot the poor against the strong
it which tlie bill was aimed. It
now crimes were created , a measure for their
suppression should opeiato impartially.
| Cnecr . | Thego\ernment did not dare lift
a linger in defense ot the suggestion that it
apply to England a piovisiou such as it was
forcing upon Ireland. He contended that
the government was bound to extend tlio oc
cupiers ot land in Ireland perfect equality
with English trades unions ns regards tlie
rights and practices enjo\ed by tlie latter ,
among which combination and exclusive
te.iilng were sanrtioncd. As the bill stood ,
it an Irishman joined an association , it was
Jor lialtour to b.iy whether or not he became
a criminal by the net. ICheers.l In conclu
sion Gladstone said Ireland , after seventy
jeirsof oppression and wrong , was In a
btato of misery and wretchedness , f'llear ,
liear."J In the wliolo Hritlsh cmplio there
was not a square yard ot land which
Ihigland hold by force alone , excepting In
Ireland , wheio force was ciiiplo\L'd. [ Knthu-
shistlc cheers from the Irish bencties.l Ire
land was held bv mastery , but the giuprn-
ment refusal to loam ; ihat ma t'iyu\olvid
responsibility. Tlu , > know that tlie wliolo
literature ot tlie world was against then : .
[ Cries of "No. " | Ho challenged tlio gov
ernment to mention any author who had re-
vUnvcd the icl.itloiis between Kngland mid
Ireland without arrhing at a homo rule solu
tion. [ Cheers , ] The lories professed to
lighting for union of empire , a tight In
wiilcli tlio liberals joined. { Laughter and
cheers. ] Thu liberals held that tlio charge
of disunion was ridiculous. It was evident
that tlie present st.Uu ot allaiis could not last
long , as Gladstone believed that
every dav tended to bring the lories
nraier their doom. Gladstone then moved
for tlio rejection ot tlie bill nmid clieeis liom
the liberal and i'arnellito benches.
lialtour , repljlng to Gladstone , first re
ferred to tlio charge that tlio government h.ul
brought tno bill as an alterniti\o to Glad
stone's homo rule proposal. If that was the
case , ho said , hu felt justilied In baying that
It was sufficient to recommend tlm measuie
to the acceptance of the houso. The govern
ment was nuiinly justified iu introducing Its
proposals by tlio stxte of social tyranny
which had recently been created in
Ireland a tyranny that attacked the
rights and libeittes of minorities , and most
ot tiiose elementary principles without which
acountiy could never bo prosperous. He
contended tint cilmo was worse now in Ire
land than in IbSuhnn Gladstone promoted
coercion. He taunted Gladstone with having
Introduced In Ibbl , an arbitrary coeiclve
niHasure which enaulcd the Irish chiot secre
tary to imprison an > body at will. Ho ridi
culed the comparison undo between trade's
unions and societies where the object was
the dismcmhei inent of the empire and which
woie supported by loielgners.
William O'lirien praised Gladstone's bravo
opposition to tlio bill. Gladstone , lie said ,
was tlio greatest conquorei of Ireland. Hu
conquered by mere generoslh of soul.
Alter Major Sanderson and Attorney General -
oral Webster replied on bnhalt ottno govein-
ment the debate adjourned.

considers himself a much abused man , and
nays It would bo Impossible tor him to play

tire salary was to to to piy hut's wrongfully

who has plaved such bum ball as Walsh IMS
the power to line men for unavoidable poor
play. And there U a good deal of method in
O'Lcary's madness. Walsh has plajed " > el-
low" ball ; Htill every plavm has his off

perhaps a good man in the points ,

would open an olllco with ox-Senatots Clinn-

"For sometlmo It has been secretly wills- 1

Dorsoy lives at his lliinio Moun-

reported to bo Immensely wealthy , but the
truth Is ho would have comparatively llttloi
loft If alibis obligations were paid. Tho' '
public was given to understand that his last
trip to Europe was made because of his fall
ing health , while really It was an attempt to
unload his herds and ranches upon thu Eng
lish at fabulous figures. Failing in this , ho
conceived the scheme to purchase the Max
well land grant of the Dutch , stocic the samq
nt a good iigino In connection with his own
property , which adjoins the grant , and then
dispose of tlio same to American capitalists *
Ho had nearly completed tlio purchase of thrt
grant when tlm supreme court confirmed tlio
little grant , 'fills decMon bo Increased the
value of the 2,000,000 acres of land in the
