LONDON , Juno 15. fNow York Herald
Cnblo Special to TUB Bnc.l Scarcely any
event , present or to come , not oven the gath
ering of war clouds In Europe , attract tbo
Bcrlous attention of tbo observant portion of
the public BO much as the pronouncement of
the coroner's Jury In Chicago with regard to
the Clan-na-nnol , and the arrest of Alexan
der Sullivan. There are some occurrences
which talca every body by surprise , and these
stand foremost amongst them. Something
is always happening to cause perturbation
in the Irish party. It Is a largo party , with
ramifications extending to various parts of
the world , and who can say , nt any moment ,
what will coma to light or what will happen
next )
A Is nn honorable man , b'jt with him are
associated B and O , and so on down to Y.
"Who knows what the tall party "Y , " is do
ing , or may liavo done at soaio time or other.
A is all right , but ho may huvo
very serious doubts in his heart
about Y , and yet nil may bo compro
mised in the eyes of the public by the rash or
lawless acts of any prominent member of the
organization. That Is Just how the matter
stands with tbo nationalists to-day , It being
alleged tbat their association ? Is being
stained by crime , or "dogged by crime , " as
Gladstone once put It. No doubt it is that
accusation , or suspicion , which caused the
league to bo regarded askauco by many who
long to rejoin Gladstone and the regular
branch of the liberal party. "It would bo
absurd , " remarked the Pull Mall Gazette ,
the other nlirht , "to connect a private von-
dctta or Dr. Cronin's enemies with the
wider Issues of the Irish politics. "
Nobody has done so , In public , but the
very eagerness with which the Pall Mall
Ga/ctto comes out with Its protest shows
that it guesses what is going on in the pee
ple's minds. When they boar of these doings
of the Clan-na-Gncl and tbo flndmg of the
Chicago Jury and Sultlvr.n's Incident , they
can not help connecting them with Irish
politics , generally. Call It absurd , or unjust ,
or what you please , but that will not alter
the direction in which the current ot thought
and opinion is running.
Q The Irish pnity is certainly unlucky. What
is very needful for it is to have Uio past bur
ied and to llvo In quasi retirement until
Gladstone has had another chance of seeing
what he could do for it , but the past will not
keep burled. Every now ana tbou It pokes
Its claws through the thin soil , and draijs
down somebody or other with it.
As far as Alexander Sullivan Is concerned
there certainly will bo every disposition ,
here , not to prejudice his case , and oven to
hope that ho will bo able to clear himself.
Mrs. Sullivan's letter to the Herald has been
read with respect , and her impassioned defense -
fonso of her husband must tend to produce a
certain doijrco of feeling In his favor. After
all , however , the Judgment of friends and re
lations can not decldo tbo .terrible question ,
which is now awaiting a solution in Chicago.
Tbo attention of the world has been drawn
to the remarkable chain of events which cul
minated In the murder of Dr. Cronln , and It
can not bo diverted from them. All subse
quent stages of the proceedings will bo
watched with the deepest interest , and in
eplte ot certain incoherent remarks about
tbo Irish vote , which have appeared In some
of our papers hero , confluence Is generally
felt that Justice will bo dono. If all tbo
guilty persons are not discovered , that ouijht
not to oxdto any surprise m London , where
every few weeks a woman is cut up and
scattered about the streets without u trace
being found of tbo assassin.
It would bo strange if the Irish loaders
hero did not fuel a profound concern about
the Cronln casa and tbo measures taken
ngalnst Alexander Sullivan. If It bo true
that Cronln discovered a great malversation
In the administration of the funds of the
National league , and that for this ho was
UoonioU to death , they cannot fall to have
serious misgivings as to their organization in
the United States. No control can bo exercised
over It , at this distance , and yet to some ex
tent the Irish leaders hero are hold responsi
ble for it. The leaders on both sides of the
Atlantic hnvo often been In the most confi
dential alliance. Alexander Sullivan , him-
elf , was president of the American branch
of the Land league In 1883. Your own col
umns Imvo made known to us that ho was
once within uu nco of being offered the nomi
nation for the vlco presidency. Ho was an
Important man , ono who must have had very
close relations with the beads of his party in
Ireland , but it does not follow that the latter
know anything whatever about his method
of carry Ing on his organization. Still it is
unfortunate that this dreadful scandal should
huvo occurred In any section of the Irish
Things do not appear to bo going particu
larly smooth with the party.
Dillon is evidently making rather poor
progress in Australia , almost as poor as Wil
liam O'Brien made in Canada , except that
DUlon Is prudent , and docs not seek to m-
llumo the popular passion * . It doss not ,
liowovor , look as if money were rolling lu
very fast. Funds at headquarters must bo
gottiiii ; very low , for the plan of campaign
is very expensive , and so is tUo commission ,
- - wtiicb is now certain to draw Ita slow length
along until autumn. Meanwhile tbo party
is silent and inactive , and is doing abso-
Jutoly nothing In parliament or out of it.
Inaction always looks to the common nye
HUe weakness. Sometimes it really is so.
What Is being said now , in almost all direc
tions , some U30i > lo may llko anil seine may
not ; but , undoubtedly tbo talk runs llko
this :
"Tho Parnolliles are sinking fust. Bui-
four U winning all alona the lino. In another
yuar you will not bo nblo to llnd the Irish
party wltU a telescope. Firaiuots has done
what wo always said it would. Nobody
thought there was much In Ualfour , but you
sea ho has been too many for the plan of
campaign and nil the rest of It. Ho had his
chance and ho made the most of IU Exit
Parnoll & Co. "
Not alittto premature , In ray humble opin
ion , is such boasting as this , but still it goes
on every whoro. An any well-informed man
would bo compelled to admit the public soon
take up an Idea which is dinned
persistently Into them , and It they
era told a thing often enough they
believe It , ThCy hear now , on nil sides , that
Parnelllsm Is played out , that the game is
p , tbat the party has jjono to pieces In Eng-
and , and holds together with dlfllculty in
roland ; that for the moment It is under a
aw and heavy cloud hi America , and stands
t a discount In Australia. They may bo all
vrong , but those are the Impressions which
ivcnts are making upon the ponoral multl-
uile. I describe them to you because they
ra facts , and very important facts , but it is
loyonrt my province to draw any conclusions
rom them.
iV Sensational Scene In a Cincinnati
Court Itoom.
CINCINNATI , Juno 13. [ Special Telegram
o Tin : DKE. ] A sensational scene was

mon picas. The Judge ban had in hearing

f Mrs. Humbsor , n midwife , to dispose of ,
ind that Mrs. Humbscr placed it in the fain-
ly olV. . J. White to bo adopted. Subse
quently Miss Schallor wished 'to recover
possession of the child and applied to Mra.
White , when that lady Informed her tbat the
baby she had was not un adopted child , but
ivus her own. The testimony before the
: ourt was most conflicting. To-day the Judge
ivns to render a decision , but Mrs. White ap
peared In court without the child. When asucd
by the court where It was , Mis. White , In a
determined manner , answered : "Judgo Outcall -
call , I understood you were going to decide

enow the consequences , and am hero to
abide by them , and If 1 have to stay In prison
ten years I am satisllcd , provided that tit tbo
end of that tlmo I have my durllnir. "
This reply of COUMO made a sensation. Her
.Homey promptly disclaimed having advised
.his course of action , and asked that his cli
ent have tlmo to rcllcct. The court said tbat
f Mrs. White did not proJuco the child she
nust suffer tbo consequences of contempt of
court , and ho allowed her till noou to con
sider. The resolute mother for two hours
, vas urged by her attorney and friends to
produce the child , but at the end of that time
iho remained firm and went bravely to Jail
under sentence of the court for contempt ,
.leantlino tbo Judge withheld his decision of
tbo merits of the caso.

PINE Rinon , via Uushvllle , Juno 15. [ Spe
cial Telegram to TUB Bun.l Three councils
were held In the camps , to-day , at which
Governor Foster put In an appearance and
gave the Indiana a little informal talk , set
ting forth the purposes for which the com
mission had come amen ? them , alluding in
cidentally to tha success of the negotiations
at the Kosobud agency.
Speeches were made by sovornl of the
prominent older Indians , which discovered a
itrong spirit of opposition to the treaty.
Among others may bo mentioned , Hod
Cloud , Biff Road , and White Antelope , as the
most earnest In their opposition to the treaty.
Red Cloud has at last openly declared hitn-
; nlf as against any sale of land ,
expressing himself to the effect
that his people needed all the
and which they now possess , and thnt
to properly Induct them Into the mysteries
of the whlto man's civilization all this land
ivouUl bo required without the relinquish-
men t of an acre.
Taken as .t whole the situation hero seems
similar to that nt Rosebud when the commis
sion came thoro. The mixed bloods and
whlto men intermarried into the trlbo are in
'avor of the bill , knowing this to bo tbo
.most advantageous offer over made or over
Ikoly to bo mado. The acknowledged loader
of the younger and moro progressive Indians
here Is and
Young-Mnn-Afrnld-of-Hls-Horso ,
ho leads the advocates of the treaty. Ho is
credited with the expression "When my
riond , General Crooks , comes and tolls mo
what to do , I shall do it , for I know ho has a
good heart towards the Indians. " With him
one , Fast Thunder , No Flesh and Six Foath-
There are at this agency about five thou
sand six hundred Indians , with 1,830 , adults ,
not Including the whlto men , who will bo nl-
owed a voice in the matter through the con
nection with the trlbo by marriage. These
ocoplo are arrayed for or against the bill ,
with a largo number on the fence , ready to
climb down on the side where there Is the
most numerous crowd or tbo Juciest beef
Tlio Indian Defense association , through
, ts secretary and paper , the Council Fire , has
been opposing the present treaty , and to this
may bo attributed the strong opposition of
Red Cloud and his followers , as Dr. Bland
has a powerful influence over this chief.
When Red Cloud returned from Washing
ton , recently , a change had como over the
spirit of his dreams , and ho came out openly
n his advice to his band to oppose tbo bill.
Coming shortly after the snub to the Indian
Defense association committee , this may bean
an effect of that cut from Secretary Noble.

CniCAao , Juno 15. [ Special Telegram to
THE BEE. ] Rev. Charlns Spurgoon , pastor
of the Baptist church at Greenwich , Eng-
and , Is stopping for a few days in this city.
In conversation with a reporter he said his
only business In this country was that of
resting and regaining his health. With ref
erence to Christian work In this country com
pared with that in England , Mr. Spurgcon
said :
"I can hardly glvo you nn opinion on that
point , for I have scon so little of it ,
having attended only ono church
slnco I landed. But I must say that
I was not very favorably impressed with
that. It was a Methodist church in San
Francisco , and the minister talked during the
whole evening on the labor question. Still ,
it is not fair to Judge the whole country by
one church. There is one thing I do notice ,
and which I find much superior to anything
llko it In England , and that is the work
among the young men. The Y. M. C. A. Is a
wonderful organization , and I am convinced
that it Is doing a wonderful work among the
youihs of the country. "
To the question as to how Chicago com
pared with London from , a religious stand
point , Mr. Spurgeon said ho thought this
city could out-do London in that matter , es
pecially In regard to Sunday observance.

ST. JOSEPH , Mo. , Juno 15.Special [ Tele
gram to TuuBcE. | An Interesting libel suit
for toO.OOO damages was begun In the United
States circuit court in this city by Charles
Alf Williams , at present managing editor of
tbo Minneapolis Tribune , against the St.
Joseph Dally Gazette. Until two weeks ago
und slnco last January , Mr. Williams had
been managing editor of the Herald of this
city , and a newspaper fight between him and
C. F. Cochran , editor of the Gazette , re
sulted in the publication by the latter , two
weeks ago , of tbo charge that Williams ,
while connected with the Minneapolis
Tribune in October , 18S7 , had written the
notorious editorial reflecting on President
Cleveland and his wife and published during
tbo time they were the guests of Minneapolis.
The editorial In question was written
by Dr. Shaw , of the Tribune editorial force ,
nt the dictation of Mr. Haskcll , part owner
of tbo paper , and an explanation to this effect
was published In the Tribune shortly after
wards over Mr. Haskcll's signature. Mr.
Williams has as his attorneys Uniod ( States
Senator C. K. Davis , of Minnesota ; Major
Wil'Iam ' Warner , of Kansas City , commander
In chief of ttio grand Army of the Republic ,
and the Hon. John S. Crosby , of Kansas
City. The United States judges before whom
the case will bo tried are Brewer , of Loav-
cnwortb , Kan. , and Phillips , of Kansas City.

Gladstone's IMoii far Ireland.
LONDON , Juno 15. [ Special Cablegram to
TJIU DUE. ] Gladstone addressed an onthu
siastlo mass meeting in drill hall at Plymouth
last evening , dealing at length with the Irish
question. Ha maintained , first , that the sou
aratioa of a dependency had never been
caused by the grantlngof autonomy ; second ,
that separation bad In numerous cases been
caused by u refusal of autonomy , and , third ,
that thcie wcro abundant cases in which
separation can bo prevented by granting au
tonomy. Gladstone supported these pror/osl-
tlons by reference to colonial -history. At
the beginning of his public career , ho said ,
there was not a colony that was not held by
precarious tenure ; but since being granted
the fullest liberty In the management of tbulr
own affairs , all had been bound strongly ta
the empire. Ho appealed to the nation to
give tbo satuo liberty to Ireland.

PAHIS , Juno 15. [ Now York Herald Cable
Special to Tun Bci : . ] The Prlnco of
Wales has often been out ta thn meets of the
two English driving clubs ; sometimes at
those of the four-tn-hand clubs , on the drags
of the Duke of Beaufort or Lord Willoughby
Dorslcy ; sometimes at those of the couching
clubs upon the drags of.Lord Currlnglon or
Lord Charles Bcrcsford , but never until
yesterday had bo been In Paris when the
French Socloto des Gmdcs , as it is ofilclally
called , wcro holding ono of thclr'tncots. So
that when It was known that Ins royal high
ness and son had accepted the proposal of
M. Leon Lambert to lot him drive them out
tolAuteml , the other members of the club
who have loams in Paris made
a point of bringing them out , the
result being thnt there was
such a moot as had never before been wit
The trysting place was ns usual , the Place
do la Concorde , and though only eighteen
coaches assembled , there wcro several oth
ers who cut in on the way to Autouil , and
when they all drew up In line opposite the
stand the total reached twenty-five , this bo-
inc ; nearly as many as were at the coaching
club meet in Hyde Park a fortnight ago. In
former years the coaches hnvo not met unti 1
2 o'clock , but as the Prlnco do Sagan wa a
anxious to have them there before tbo racin
began the hour was change * ! to 1 , and coach
ing men being nothing If hot punctual , the
midday meal was hurried through and
by tbo tlmo fixed for tbo meet
five or six coaches drawn up in the Circle do
la Royalc. For th6 next'ton or fifteen min
utes coaches continued to * arrive , and shortly
before the half hour Mr. tambert , who was
driving his own horse/In Karen do Roths
child's coach , showed tfr&w'ay to his club
members. He hada ra'tt&r-rcsoonsiblo task
considering that the : heir to the throne of
England and the tatter's oldest son wcro
among hia passengers. '
The prince , who was wearing a light sum
mer suit and white hat , had declined a box
'BQat , which was lilled by Prince Albert
Victor , and was sitting immediately , behind
the driver with the Duchess Do Moray ,
and beside him M. Lambert , who was driv
ing four handsome bays , which were moro
llko coach horses than most of those one
sees at the present day. Ho had several
other passengers , including Mr. Reuben
Sassoon and Mr. Willoughby , and ho kept
his horses going at regular gallop past the
Champs Elysees and through the Avenue
Dubols to Auteuil , so that there was no
excuse it the others did not keep their dis
tance. The parade was a very pretty ono
oven if the sun was not shining so brightly
as ono would have wished. Still , with the
recollections cf the many wet Fridays , when
this avenue meet has beeu spoilt by rain ,
ono could not bo otherwise than thankful for
the fine day.
The scene at Auteuil , too , was as pic
turesque as It well could bo , for the Prlnco
do Sagan and his colleagues wcro waiting to
receive the coaches as , with three out-riders
in scarlet , they drove on to the park. M.
Lambert , driving his team with much care ,
brought his coach upon the extreme end of
our line to the left. The order in which the
teams came was :
General Count Do Frlant , bay wheelers ,
chestnut black leaders ; M. Ferdinand Bis-
choffshcim , bays and browns ; M. Henri
Rldgoway , boy wheelers , brown leaders ;
Priuco Troubetsky , browns ; Count Po-
tocki , brown wheelers , bay chestnut
loaders ; Mr. Robert Wlnthrop , three
bay and a brown ; M. Do Cacarello , bay and

Several ot those tcamaiwcro not only ex
cellent as regards tbo quality of the horses ,
but were well put 'together and well
turned out , notably ' that of Mr.
Wlnthrop , who had th'op'ieasuro of showing
Autoull under the bos ( inispiccs to Wbltolaw
Reid , the now minister , and his wife in a
dress of French grey. '
M. Henri RldgQway's' ddin was also a very
smart ono , and among the many passengers
carried by him were the Duo do Grammont ,
Comto and Cotntesso Ul Brlgoli and M. do
Coutant Blron ,
But it would carry mo too far wcro J. to at
tempt anything like a > list of the notable
people out , though I must not forget to men
tion Lord Shrewsbury's coach , for not only
had ho four very smart horaes , but ho was
accompanied by his sister , Lady Hemeloy ,
by Couutess M. Groy and Madame do Pour-

W lint Ho Thinks of the Dr. Cronln Af
LINCOLN , Neb. , Juno 15. [ Special Telegram -
gram to TUB Bun. ] In nn Interview with
President Fitzgerald , of the Irish National
league of America , this evening , ho ex
pressed himself at some length on the mys
terious murder or disappearance of Dr.
Cronin. Ho doubted some that the body
found was that of Dr. Cronin. Many persons
of close observation agreed with him that
the identifications at the inquest were not
absolutely conclusive , and that they were
promoted moro b'y the excitement over hla
disappearance and the finding of a body than
by any real resemblance. Ho took some
stock lu'tho statement made by the Toconto
rcpoiter , who said that ho Raw Cronin some
days after Ins disappearance , and
the fact that the corpse found
Had a goatee , while the doctor
were none , would suein to cast doubt over
the Identifications. It might be that the dee
tor was dead , nnd it mlcjlit bo that ho was In
hiding to create n sensation , or that ho had
been made a prisoner by the secret enemies
of thn Britlsii government. In either event ,
the evidence pointed moro directly to the
EnglMk sccrot agents than to anyone olso.
They would have a motive.
Dr. Cronin was a member of a faction of a
physical force society , and , us a bitter fighter ,
hud made many enemies among the Irish
loaders. His murder or disappearance would
tend to bring discredit on the Irish cause *
everywhere nnd disgrace to the leaders.
This had been the result , so far , in a meas
ure , but tlmo would right all these things ,
whether Dr. Cronln was dead or alive. Ho
was confident In the belief in Alexander Sul
livan's cntlra innocence , and declared most
emphatically that the Cronln excitement had
nothing to do with tlio postponement of the
meeting of the National league ,

Dunne claims to bo the paisoir who origi
nated the charges against Alexander Sulli
van. Ho expresses dissatisfaction with iho
tone ot the letter fiom President Fitzgerald ,
Intimating it was not as radio il as was do-
sired. Fitzgerald's letter is ns follows ;
"Tho members of the Irbh National league
of America arc luw-nbldlng citizens of the

abhorrence as any other element of the com
