Soniothlng About tlio AIcji Who Are Talked
Of for National
A great deal ot quiet canvassing on tlio
coming election waa done by the delegates at
the hotels yesterday nnd several of the state
delegations held caucuses to agree upon a
candidate. The contest for national dele
gate has narrowed down to three men , WIN
here , O'Connor and O'Noll , although , as In a
political convention , thcro Is an cast nnd a
\ve.U and a north and a south and countless
undercurrents which render any prediction
as to the result out of question ,
The Pennsylvania delegation In Its caucus
yesterday acting on Information that O'Nell
absolutely refused to allow his name to be
used , decided to support Wllhero , who It Is
now said will accept the position for the
fifth time. Sir. O'Connor's friends say that
they are not holding any caucuses , hut are
H4tUfltid tos \ \ the action of the conven
Ono inoasiirp which vrlll bo conslderea and
which the Pennsylvania and some other dele
gations have decided to support Is the estab
lishment ot what U known as tho"Patrotlo !
Fund , " a per capita tax for the furtherance
of the causa of homo rule In Ireland.
Patrick O'Nell , county delegate of Phila
delphia county , was born In the County
Mayo. Ireland , In 1851. and Immigrated to
the lulled States In 1S70. Ho mndo Phila
delphia his homo , and shortly after getting
established ho began to Identify himself wit'i
Irish organizations. H > has uluciy.i been an
actlvq worker In the order lu his own city ,
and u ii largely due to hla efforts that It
has Its present strength In Phlladphla.
In Its early growth In that city the Anctent
Order of Hibernians was opposed by Arch
bishop Wood and It was not until Arch
bishop Ryan succeeded him In 1881 that Mr.
O'Nell found scope for his abilities. Prom
that time the order made rapid strides and
ho now presides over fifty-seven divisions ,
with a membership of 12,000. In all ether
Irish movements ho has also boon promi
nent. He was ono of the flrst organizers of
the Irish Land League and did faithful work
for It. When the Irish National league took
Its place Sir. O'Nell was elected treasurer ,
nnd In this position over $100,000 passed
through his hands , and every penny was no-
canted for Ho Is a promin nt bislneis nun
with a standing In the commercial world
which has never been questioned.
Judge Wllhero Is yet a young man , only
39 years of age , medium sized and power
fully framed. His head Is clear and there
Is probably no better reprecontatlvc of the
Irish race In this country. Ho was born In
Donegal and ntlor the death of his father
hh mother and six children Immigrated to
Philadelphia In 18C3 , where the subject of
this sketch has since rcsldfd. Ho Joined
the Ancient Order of Hibernians In 1874 , was
one of the committee that recslvcd Parncll
and Dillon In 1870 nnd was president of the
first branch of the Land league In Phila
delphia , Ho was president of the Phila
delphia council of forty-six branches until
the convention In 1883 , when the Land
league yaB merged In the National league.
At the Boston convention In 1SSI ho was
elected vice president under Patrick Egan
nnd subsequently ro-elccted under John
Fitzgerald. Ho has held every ofilco within
the gift of the Ancient Order of Hibernians
and Is a Judge of one of the courts In
Philadelphia. He was appointed by Gov
ernor Pattlson nnd afterward elected.
One of the brainiest as well as ono of the
most popular men at the convention Is P. J.
O'Connor of Savannah , Ga. Ho was born In
Georgia In 185D nnd was educated at Plo
None college at Slacon , Ga. After a. two-
year's course there ho entered Georgetown
Law College , where ho took the degree of
L.L.B. In 1880. Ho Is president of the
Catholic Library association , an organiza
tion which owns a $30,000 building. In 1883
ho was elected an alderman In his native
city nnd served with distinction. Ho was
supreme delegate to the council of the
Catholic knights In Chicago last Slay and
was the first Hibernian to attend n national
convention from his section. Ho has held
the position of chairman of the directory for
three successive terms nnd Is spoken of as
uniting In his style "tho scholarly Irish
gentleman and the southern cavalier. "
Among the IJi li'Kiitrn.

Is a traveling man and seems to know
The grand parade this afternoon will be
headed by Police Sergeant Thomas Jeffer
son Ormsby and a platoon ot police com
posed of the following olficers : Charles
H. Slonroe. John Kavencamp , John O'Gor
man , P. Foley , Andy Fahey , Sllchael ICls-
sane , Richard Flynn and Ed E. Heelln.
Cornelius O'Brien , state secretary of
Pennsylvania , Is a "broth of a boy wld a
brogue" that would melt the heart of a
stone. Charles Lever left one of his books
open and he escaped at the age of 20. That
was fifty years ago and he Is 20 yet. He Is
an expert story teller , an expert book
keeper and an expert at keeping his friends
In hot water.
Dan Sullivan , the wildest Irishman In
Iowa , Is at the Dellone , his manly breast
plastered with badges. His regular bever
age Is seltzer , and when sufficiently charged
with that effervescent he can talk more
Irish than Brian Boru ever dreamed of.
His home Is Sioux City , where ho draws
fees as an attorney and a member of the
firm of Lynn , Sullivan & Poley. His com
panion In badges and seltzer Is T. II.
Judge , an attorney of Dewltt , la.
An Item In Sunday morning's paper re
garding the banquet at the Paxton on
Thursday night appears to be misleading
In the statement that there will be 400
plates at $5 a plate. This much is cor
rect , but some of the guests have conceived
the Idea that they will be asked to pay for
their places at the banquet board. This Is
a mistake , as the local committee has set
tled for that already and propose to treat
their guests In a princely manner.
The most Important questions to be con
sidered by the convention are said to be the
revision of the constitution and by-laws ,
the selection of the national officers , and
the place for holding the next convention.
San Franclsc Chicago , Philadelphia , St.
Louis , Detroit and a number of other cities
arc urging their claims us being good places
for the holding of the next meeting ,
John A. Crelghton Is In his glory enter
taining a host of old friends during their
visit In the city.
Hon. P. J. Carr of San Francisco and B.
White of Oakland are the Pacific coast
representatives at the convention. Sir.
White Is state secretary of the California
A. O. H. and Carr is delegate. After the
convention Is ended Sir. Curr will go on
to Washington on a political mission.
It was reported yesterday afternoon that
some of the western delegates were going
to Introduce a resolution urging National
Delegate Wllhere to consent to the use of
liirt name as a candidate for that position
again. It seems more than likely that Sir.
Wllhero will again permit his name to
come before the convention as a candidate
for this Imiiortaiit office.
It was announced last evening that John
Rush nnd Patrick O'Neill of Philadelphia
had refused to become candidates for na
tional delegate. This narrows the contest
to O'Connor of Savannah nnd Wilhere of
Philadelphia. O'Connor's friends say that
they will not electioneer for him , but will
abide by the action of the convention. The
election takes place Thursday nfterncon.
Among the delegates who are newspaper
men are : Joseph i ) . Slurphy , assistant city
editor , nnd Thomas P. Logan , special re
porter , on the Philadelphia. Unuulrer. In
connection with Charles J. Hlglev , theso"
gentlemen are publishers of the Philadel
phia Hibernian , a semi-monthly paper , de
voted to the Interests of the Ancient Order' '
of Hibernians. Sir. Blelcy Is chairman of
the national press committee , and Is a
most pleasant gentleman to meet.
Amoni ? the men who seem likely to be
honored with u national office In Captain
Sllchael J. Slattery of Albany , N. Y. He
has filled a number of offices In the III-
bcinlnn cud or. nnd BO far has no opponent
for the office. He U accompanied by his
son , Hiv , John R. Slattery , a young priest ,
who has gained prominence as an eloquent
public and pulpit speaker. " " ;

day , and despite the disagreeable weather a
good sized crdwd was out to enjoy tuo sport.
The weather would have been all right had
It not been for the wind , which seemed to
come from all points of the compass at once
and kept the park In a continual swirl of
dust. It came over the diamond In vicious
gusts , overwhelming bleachers and grand
stand alike and at times fairly suffocating
Notwithstanding this drawback , however ,
the game wac a bute. Both teams wcro on
their mottle , nnd the nlno Innings fairly
bristled vUh brilliant plays. There was
Just enough ragged work to add zest to the
good , and so uncertain was the battle that
the crowd was kept In a continual state ot
feverish excitement , and when It was all
over nnd the Rourke family had achieved the
most creditable victory so far this season ,
there was an outburst of cheers and everyone
ono left the grounds feeling that It was good
to have bs n there.
Whltehlll and Corlsh were the opposing
pitchers , and It was nip and tuck between
them from start to flntshT Both pitched
superb ball , "Whltey" fairly besmearing
himself with glory , letting Connie Strothers'
hard hitting gang down with but seven hits ,
throe of which were made In the last Inning
after ho had slacked up under the Impres
sion that the game was cinched. Besides all
this , he struck out ten men , the gogd natured
Belt bulng a victim four times In succession.
When Watklns let this rosy youth ont it Is
cart wheels to dimes he lt-t go of the strong
est man ho had on his staff.
Both teams came upon the * ground with
blood In their eyes , particularly the Jax ,
who openly vowed they would drive Whltoy
to cigarettes and break Papa Rourke's heart.
"Big Fat Jakey" Strauss was on hand as
big as a skinned horse. He had had a new
ash pan put In Ills' mouth , and whenever ho
opened It the people recoiled as before some
yawning abyss. Jack Darrali made himself
very numerous , too , and when this prize
beauty got up on the coaching lines ho
spouted like an old-fashioned volcano. If
you have ever been admitted Into the mys
terious workings of this fellow's face , you
can form some vaguei Idea of how he loped
up to the umpire In thai ninth Inning , hooked
his upper lip on his collar button and poured
a torrent of passionate oratory Into his off
auricular. If you'over , watched a boa-con
stricter endeavoring tocough up a cow he had
swallowed lij an unguarded moment , you maybe
bo able to Imagine Bill Willie Letcher telling
Colonel SIcKelvey that ho "was a fit subject
for the garbage wagon
But to get back > , to the Interesting points
of the game. /i i
ESIMETT'S'TTAYORITE ' CAPER.
Seery , the ol'd 'Iridfinapolls hero , had Just
cut a new sapling" ; and he walked to the
plate with an air that as good as said that
ho Intended to knock all kinds of vegetables
out of young Sir. Corlah.
But Corlsh was onto nlm , and ho kept
the sphere well out of his reach , and Emmett -
mett walked down.
Of course there was a cheer at that , and
when Jocko Munyun Joined In the prom
enade there was a veritable burst of shouts
from the Jubilant crowd.
Str. Corlsh was nervous. Anyway he
unbuckled ono of the wildest pitches he
had In his trunk , and both Seery and Jocko
ambled on a base nearer home.
The populace kept up their merry din , and
when Sir. Corlsh allowed a ball tossed to
him by Belt to roll aimlessly by him , and
Enimett and Slunyun skated home before
ho could fasten his delicate talons upon U ,
they fairly lifted the roof.
It was so nlco to see the Rourko children
start so well.
But that was all there was to that'Inning ,
SIcVey , Wood and Rourko retiring In order ,
Lotcher , after haying struck out , ran clear
around to third on a bad throw the first
ono lie ever made ot Kid Fear's. Jakey
Strauss then folded up his mouth nnd step
ping jauntily to the plate , caught one of
Whltoy's rarest slants over the heart , and
sent It ker-slup against the left field fence.
Of course the glrallic Letcher trotted home ,
but Jakey was only able to make flrst.
Crotty also connected safely and the ghost
of Slonday's game seemed about to stalk
upon the field. But It didn't. Strothers
drove a hard ono down to SloVey , but Slac
grabbed It and tapping the bag with his
little foot , ho lot her go and headed Crotty
oft at second.
That was clever , and the crowd cheered.
Belt struck out.
GOT A HOME RUN HERE.
It was an egg apleco In the second , but
In the third the Rourkes took another pair.
Slunyun was deadheaded to first and Mc-
Voy was the next man up. As he posed
nt the plate rosy clouds glowed overhead
and In the east the horizon burned In gold.
Sir. Corlsh took a long aim and cut her
That was Georgle's war club meeting the
A phosphorescent streak was descried In
the air as the hoghtdo soared out Into the
east. A blue clad man was seen tearing
frantically toward the fence. Ho reaches
It , holds up his hands Imploringly , then
drops them llko pieces of ropo. Then ho
lingered and gazed and dreamed. The
scone was so soothing , the tranquillity so
holyGoorglo had knocked the ball across Six
teenth street , and both runners came In ,
The tumult that followed was actually scan
In their half the Visitors got In ono them
selves. Letcher made a hit , stold second ,
wont to third on tj ( KW's second error , and
homo on Jakey's sjicrluce.
That terminated the run getting until the
seventh , In which they'1 broke even that is ,
both sides made a''run. ' For Omaha Seery
ambled down to comer ono for the third
time , Slunyun's hltjsajit him to second , llc-
vey'a out to third , and he ran in on Strauss'

missed third strike , but ho was forced out

Omaha scored H SW In the eighth on

The final Inning , was a fruitful ono for
bith sides , the Rowfcef scoring three tallies
on two errors and thre'o. jiita and the visitors
four on two singles and an error by Slunyun
and a homo mn by big /at Jakey Strauss.
That ended the fun nnd a sigh of relief
went up from the crowd ,
Omaha had won her fourth game and they
were happy ,
Th8 Jacksonvllles will make a last fren-
EMl | effort to tear oft a piece this afternoon ,
and don't you fall to go out and aeo them
they are so picturesque , especially Lctcher's
