grcn * of the Contention ,
Delegates and visitors to the Ancient
Order of Hibernian convention wcro astir
at an early hour yesterday morning. The
early trains all brought large excursion
parties Into the city , and long before the
hour for assembling of the divisions which
were to take part In the- parade the streets
were filled with men wearing green plumes ,
green badges or shamrocks.
At 9 o'clock the delegates met In Morand's
hall to hear the report of the ofilcars. Reso
lutions on tho. death of Bishop O'Farrcll ot
Trenton , N. J. , were Introduced and referred.
The national directory was Instructed to re
port amendments to the constitution at the
cession this morning , and an adjournment
was taken until afternoon.
The parade was the feature of the day ,
there bMng fully 3,000 men In line. All of
the streets designated In the program were
covered , and the marching and counter
marching was viewed by the thousands from
the curbstones , windows and housetops.
It was 3 o'clock when the head of the pro
cession marched down Capitol avenue to
Fourteenth street and around to the en
trance of the Exposition hall. The hall was
quickly filled with people.
The Interior of the hall was tastefully
decorated with the national colors ot Amer
ica and Ireland , and the shield and harp
hung together all over -the room. Great
golden eagles held cluster ! ! of flags In their
talons , and the birds made of brass seemed
about to greet the Immense throng with
Bhrlll screeches of defiant liberty.
The platform was occupied by local and
visiting priests , local and national officers
and members of tho. Hibernian order and
city officials. Among those who were on the
stand were Congressman Thomas A. E. Wea-
dock of Bay City. Mich. ; Judge M. F. Wll-
hcre of Philadelphia , John A. Crclghton of
Omaha , Bishop Scannell of this diocese , J.
A. Kllroy of Lincoln , Father Shahan of
Washington , D. C. ; Father Morarlety and
Mayor Johnston of South Omaha , C. P.
Sweatman of Ohio , O'Brien J. Atkinson of
Port Huron , Mich. ; John C. Weacock ot
Michigan , Father Doman of Owosso , Mich. ,
and many other prominent persons.
J. A. Kllroy of Lincoln , Neb. , was chair
man of the meeting and after the crowd had
been seated he welcomed the delegates and
visitors In a cordial manner. He said that
he would not talk much about the order of
Hibernians , except to say that It was an Irish
society born of a persecution dating back
about 230 years. Their mission was not yet
fulfilled , hence the vitality of the organiza
tion. They would continue to work for home
rule for their native country. The order
was born , as was this mighty republic , dur
ing the English persecution of the colonists
who founded these United States. He re-
i ferred tc > the organization of the thirteen
| S , ' original colonies and the declaration of In
dependence , saying that this was a home
of the brave , and for the brave. Every true
Irishman was a guard on the watch tower
of American freedom , and In this great land ,
founded on the principles of freedom to all
men , every one was allowed to worship and
adore his Maker according to his or her dic
tates. In behalf of the citizens of Omaha
and Nebraska ho bid the national delegates
ot the Hibernian societies and their friends
a hearty -welcome. After announcing a
change In the program , , the chairman Intro
duced Father Thomas J. Shahan , D. D. ,
professor of early church history In the
Catholic University of America at Washing
ton. After a few Introductory remarks
Father Shahan said :
"In the history of the last seven centuries
there Is no tragedy llko the slow but un
relenting despoilment of the Celt. His rob
ber conqueror stripped him , decade by de
cade , of peace and unity 'and joy ; of land
and learning and art ; of progress and com
fort , and loft him but two treasures which
were unaccesslblo to his crass material
weapons his nationality and the power of
cong. Ho could not wrench from the Celt
the sacred feeling that the soil he trod on
was the Immemorial Inheritance of n hundred
generations ot heroes and legislators .and
saints. That was the mighty power which
sustained this Prometheus of the nations ,
the sacred spell which made the children of
lianba forget their Ineffable sorrows and
cast a consecrated halo about their lives ,
and made them walk , as It were forever ,
In the light and , atmosphere of martyrdom.
"That abiding sense of nationality , that In-
offaccablo knowledge that wo were ono people
ple , with a common , glorious ancestry , with
common experiences and common Instltn-
tlons , with common Ideals and hopes , com
mon affections and common sufferings , was
the oldest ot all the Celtic traits. Long ,
long ago our pagan fathers laid the adaman
tine foundments of this feeling , what time
they went gallantly conquering on the Rhino ,
the Danube , the Po , and the Ebro , and In-
gralned It beyond the blood , into the spirit
and the utmost attainable recesses of the
Celtic soul. Christianity only Intensified
this love , which never had a more Ideal
champion than the noble and saintly Colitm-
klllo as he stood on the prow of the little
boat which bore him Into life-long exile , and
his grey eyes filled with tears and his
bardic soul broke out Into the tendcrcst
and saddest of songs upon his beloved Erin ,
Time and misfortune may have obliterated
all the acquisitions of the Colt , but they
could never make him forget what he was ,
nor that .
"Though fallen the state of Kiln , nnd
rluuiK'd the Scottish land.
Though small the power of Mann , though
imwiik'd Lewellvn's band.
Though Ambrose Merlin's prophecies me
Hnld us Idle talon.
ThoiiKh lunn'a ruined cloisters lire swept by
northern gales ,
One in nninp nnd In fnrnp
Are the nen-dl\Ided ( lapis. "
( U'Arcy McGee. )
"But what was It that preserved this
cplrlt , this white ray of the consciousness ot
national dignity In the dark and desolate
centuries of oppression , when every other
light ot the past was quenched In thickest
gloom ? Need I toll you what It was that
Bheltcrcd the love of country beneath the
rays of the peasant , within tliu lonely shiel
ing , on the moors and rocks ot Connmight ,
and on the mountains and bogs ot Kerry ?
Need 1 say what power stronger than love
or death cast over the Irish nation Its magi
cal protcci'lon from the hut ot the school
master and the steps ot the altar , and
nursed In lonely forest and distant glen and
on the savage Inaccessible hills the sore-
pressed spirit of the fatherland ? It was
"Tho language of old Erin , of her history
nnit name . . . .
Of her inonarchs and her heroes , her glory
and her fame . . . .
The sacred shrine where rested , thro' sun-
Htilno and thro' gloom.
The spirit of her martyrs , ns their bodies
In the tomb , . .
The time-wrought shell where murmur'd ,
mill centuries of wrong. . . .
The secret voice ot freedom , In unnnl and In
Bonn. "
"It was ( he tongue of the great chief , as
ho harangued his men on the eve of battle ,
the tongue ot Desmond and fleraldlne , ot
McCarthy and O'Netl and O'Donnell , as they
recounted their wrongs to the brave tribes
men , who held with them the narrow pass ,
or stood within the bloody ford , or led some
wild , sweeping , forlorn hope against their
hereditary foe.
"It was the tongue of the bard as he
painted In burning thoughts and picturesque
terse the ancient glories ami the long ,
splendid line of Irish heroes , the sweetnet *
and tenderness and unsullied purity of Irish
women and the generosity , the bravery , the
chivalry and the warm , full friendship of
the nnclcnt Irtish loaders. The hunted
priest from the rude altar ot turf or stone
breathed holy consoling accents upon
the broken hearts of the aged and the wid
owed and the fatherless , and It was the
saving ark by which the Catholic religion
was maintained In Ireland , for there was a
day when the hated sound of the Sassenach's
tongue would liavo turned the Irish even
against that beloved faith for which they
have let go all those treasures of earth
that other nations apostatized to save.
"The language of a people Is the pledge
of lt perpetuity It enshrines all the sweet
est sentiments and all the profoundcst ex
periences of Its existence the memories of
homo and family , of love and devotion and
tender friendship.
"Tho sound ot the native tongue In a
foreign land will open all the flood gates
of the heart and call back the soul of the
dying man from the very threshold of
paradise. The native tongue In the spiritual
mausoleum In which are entombed all the
glories , all the dead beloved hopes , and the
ancient Ideals of a race. It Is the Im
perishable God-given character of their In
dividuality , and while It lasts they may suf
fer ; they may Ho beneath n mountain of
chains , but there Is that In them which will
ono day rise , and , unlocking the keys ot their
fetters , restore them to their places among
the peoples. Yes ! when our people had lost
all , when all the lands and castles between
the four bright seas of Ireland had fallen
Into the hands of the Saxon , there was still
one stronghold , one aerial spiritual fastness
where the nation found shelter Its ancestral
tongue. And If today there Is spirit enough
to wrest from the hereditary enemy a little
of ancient right , nnd to enable Irishmen
to stand before the world with the unwonted
flush of domestic victories upon their brows.
It Is to "the dear old tongue they owe It.
\nd yti
"Through cold neglect 'tis dying now ; a
stranger on our shoie !
No Tnra's hall re-echoes to Its music ns of
No Lawrence Urea the Celtic clans "round
leaKiir'd Athaclee ,
No Shannon wafts from Limerick towers
their wnr pongs to HIP sen.
Ah ! magic tongue , Unit 'round us wove Its
spells co soft and dear !
Ah ! pleasant tongue , whose murmurs were
us music to the ear !
Ah ! gloilotis tongue , whose accents could
each Celtlcheart enthrall
Ah ! mining tongue , that sounded like the
Hwollen torrent's fall !
The tongue that In the senate was lightning
flashing bright ,
Whose echo In the battle was the thunder
In Its might !
That tongue , which once In chieftains hall
pour'd loud the minstrel lay.
As chieftain , serf or minstrel old , Is silent
there today.
That tongue whose shout dlsmay'd the foe
ut Cong nnd MtillaghmaRt ,
Like those who nobly peiUhed there Is num
bered with the. past ! "
"Wo live In an ago which Is very pious
toward the monuments of antiquity , and
sends out special students to learn the lan
guage of the Indian or the patois of some
Australian tribe. How passing strange that
wo do not recollect that the grandest monument
ment of European antiquity Is the Irish
tongue in which are preserved better than
anywhere else the memories of the first Im
migrations from the far orient , and the
habits , speech and beliefs ot the first men
of Aryan race whq ever crossed the plains
of Hungary or came up the Danube Into the
lands ot Europe. Every Irishman rever
ences the stones of Clonmacnolse and the
cloisters of holy cross , the crosses of lena ,
the rude stone churches nnd forts of Aran-
more , the royal cemeteries on the- Boyne , the
grand old sites ot Emanta and Tara and so
many other royal raths and duns , but what
are they compared with their living glorious
tongue , the voiceof their souls , the light of
their eyes , nay In the sweet Irish phrase ,
the pulse of their hearts ? Within Its en
chanted circle * live again the ancient Gaels ,
with all their superb and healthy animal
nature , their 'passionate love for athletic
sports , their devotion to the chase , their
excessive fondness for daring adventure ,
their simple , affectionate , trusting hearts ,
their chivalrous tenderness , their sacred re
spect for the weak and the defenseless and
their readiness to champion any cause
against oppression and tyranny.
"Men and brothers ! you have a special
Interest In this memorable undertaking.
The general Interest of Ireland , her welfare ,
her goon name among the world's peoples ,
and the spread of the Celtic spirit and In
fluence In all that they have of ennobling
and elevating , such I take It , are the funda
mental Ideas on which your ancient organ
ization.Is . based. In the past you have bsen
the Boild nucleus on whom the motherland
could count for sympathy nnd help ; you
have been the hither-Erin , the Ireland-over-
Sea , where the dictates of the tyrant did not
run , whence the eternal reaction went forth ,
and where the literary propaganda for free
dom was carried on with such vehemence
and genius that wo have won with the pen
and the tongue what our ancestors battled for
In vain with the sword. But this Is only
the first step In the rehabilitation of that
brave Island people , which has so long withstood
stood the shocks of adversity , Just as Its
girdling granite walls have breasted for
ages the Impact of old ocean. There Is an
other step now before us , and It Is to give
back to the Celtic race the world of ancient
glory , of noble thoughts and glorious ex
ample , of whlclr centuries of contempt and
neglect have robbed It. Times change , and
the day has passed when our name was a
byword and a scandal In the haunts of men.
Slowly but grandly and unfailingly wo have
fought our way up the steep and painful
hriRhtB of hate and prejudice , and routed
from their ancient strongholds all those
powers once leagued against our name and
fame. In all this you have had a largo
share of glory , and when the annals ot the
decline and fall of the cruel British Imperial
ism of former days shall have been written
by sonic Celtic Gibbon of the future ;
when wo toke up again the Irish
annuls where the wearied hands ot
the Four Masters dropped the pen , the name
ot the Ancient Order of Hibernians will bo
emblazoned upon one of their brightest pages.
What a spectacle for the world of the power
of Celtic endurance , and the mighty strength
that slumbers In organized manhood , when It
Is Unshed across the wires that 100.000 men
ot Irish blood have decreed that their mother
tongue shall live , and live , too , In their midst
a wcllsprlng to all time of the holiest nnd
highest suggestions for mankind. It will bo
told In the halls ot Oxford , and on the banks
of the Seine , and among the thoughtful
students of the German fatherland , to whom
wo own an Indelible debt of gratitude for
their sheltering care of our dear old tongue.
It will be echoed In distant Italy , and In the
Eternal City Itself , that at last the
children of the Gael are rousing themselves
from the long 'night of slumber and prepar
ing for new and peaceful conquests In all the
provinces ot thought wherein once before
they were the schoolmasters ot the civilized
world. But above all , will this noble act be
told In every sweet valley and on every fair
hill ot holy Ireland , and It will tnfuso fresh
ardor Into the brave , hard-battling people ,
and It will fire them with fresh respect for
themselves and their cause , and teach them
a monumental lesson of unity and nvake
them feel , as tew other acts could , that their'
brethren the wide world over are In deepest
sympathy with them , and will cling , while
blood flows and hearts brat , to the spiritual
Inheritance of the Celt his Christian
faith and his love of learning ,
of which so much Is Imbedded
forever In his venerable ancient tongue.
"Send knowledge forth to scatter wide , and
deep to cast Its seeds.
The nurse of energy nnd hope , of manly
thoughts and deeds.
Let It go forth ; rlgllt soon will spring those
forces In Its trnln
That vanquish nature's stubborn strength ,

A higher wealth , a surer gain , than wave

Let It go forth unstained , and purged from

With fearless forehead raised to man , but
humbly bent to heaven. "

TROPPAUX , Austrian Silesia , May 9.
Striking miners made a desperate attack to
day upon a detachment ot gendarmes who
wcro guarding a colliery In Polish Oslrau ,
with the object of driving away the men
who wcro at work. Many thousands ot
miners are on a strike In the mining dis
tricts of Silesia and a number ot them have
openly defied the authorities upon several
The body of miners referred to marched
upon the colliery carrying weapons of vari
ous descriptions , though heavy sticks pre
dominated. Upon arriving at the colliery It
was found that the buildings and pit en
trances were guarded by a Strong detach
ment of gendarmes. The rioters were warned
to disperse , but Instead of doing so they be
gan pelting the police officers with stones ,
wounding , a number of them. Finally the
leaders of the mob became bolder and per
suaded the strikers to make a rush upon the
police , expecting to drive them from the
positions which they occupied. The gen
darmes after a last warning opened fire upon
the rioters , killing nine of them and woundIng -
Ing twenty others. The mob then fled In all
directions , threatening , however , to return
In larger numbers and avenge the death of
their comrades.
The gendarmes ore being reinforced nnd
no further trouble Is anticipated at that par

British Cabinet MlnUter Mixed In n Nasty
Stock Jobbing Mess.
LONDON , May 9. Rt. Hon. A. J. Mun
della , president of the Board of Trade , has
been placed In an awkward position , and
the newspapers are calling for his resigna
tion. As a man of considerable prominence
In the commercial world he had allowed his
name to be placed on the directorate of a
company which turned out to be a fraudu
lent concern. The company In question was
the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile
agency. In reviewing the public examina
tion of the comiUny Justice Williams en
dorsed the official receiver's severe strictures
on the directors , and did not exempt Mr.
Mundella. Sir James Fergusson , cx-parlla-
mentary secretary to the foreign office , and
lit. Hon..Sir John Gorst , formerly financial
secretary to the treasury , were also among
the directors who came In for a share of
the judge's strictures.
Public sentiment In the city seemed to
demand Mr. Mundella's resignation on ac
count of the disclosures made at the public
examination of the affairs of the company.
His friends , however , urged that , though
technically responsible as one of the di
rectors for the frauds carried on by the
company , ho had not been directly mixed
up In any Irregularities , and that there was
no Intention on his part to do anything dis
honest. While admitting that ho had been
guilty of great Indiscretion In allowing his
name to be used In connection with a con
cern which turned out to be of a very un
savory nature , they acquitted him of any
personal responsibility In the frauds. Ac
cordingly , after consultation with the law
officers of the crown , Mr. Mundella decided
not to resign.

duct at the Grand Trunk meeting In April ,

DES MOINES , May 9. ( Special Telegram
to The Bee. ) The famous Cumberland mur
der case , which was carried to the supreme
court on appeal from Shelby district , Is
ended , so far as the .courts are concerned ,
and J. K. Cumberland must hang , unless
the governor pardons or commutes the. . sen
tence. An opinion affirming the Judgment
of the lower court > was handed down by the
supreme court today , being written by Judge
Klnne. On the appeal the attorneys for the
defense Insisted that the testimony did not
show that the defendant was guilty of mur
der In the first degree.
The supreme , court * says. : "The evidence
showed without dispute that the defendant
killed James and Jaspen Robinson with a
deadly weapon In' ' a barn some distance
from the house ; that defendant , armed with
such weapon , left the house and went to the
barn for the 'purpose of meeting these men ;
that ho killed them , that he secreted their
bodies , and later burled them and con
cealed all knowledge ot what he had done.
The defendant claims the killing was In
self-defense , but we think all circumstances
disclosed , . In the evidence fully warranted
the court In finding that the defendant was
guilty of murder In the first ; degree. His
acts after the killing 'were ' not In accord
with those .of a man ho acted In defense
of his own person" , pr life * The record
shows that .the defends'rtUond. hls-wlte , Joslo
Cumberland , were Jn'djcted for murder ' In
the first degree. 'The ' defendant filed his
written plea of guilty , as charged , where
upon , on' motion oftho * state , the wife was
discharged. "

PUEBLO , Colo. , May 9. General Sander's
Cripple Creek Industrials arc still traveling
east on the Missouri Pacific train which
they captured last night. The seizure
was rather neatly effected. While
an engine of the Denver & Hlo Grande rail
road was tnklng coal , the fireman being off
the engine. It was suddenly surrounded by
fifteen of the men under General Sanders
who came In Saturday as a. Coxey band.
j They took the engine nnd run It
down to the Missouri Pacific yards , where
there were six Coal cars that had been left
there a shoit time before. The whole band
bonuled these cars , nnd attaching the Hlo
Grande engine , started for the east at n
lively gnlf. Four miles out they met an en
gine which was coming In for the purpose
of taking out u passenger trnln , ns all rollIng -
Ing stock hud been kept out of the town
since the Crlpplu Creek army arrived. The
engineer reversed and Is keeping ahead of
the Industrials. The latter stopped their
trnln nt Uoole and took coal nnd water.
In a cut at Olney on engine and car were
overturned with the object of ditching the
Industrials' train and It was expected that
If they did not stop before reaching the ob
struction there would be a collision In which
many of the men might be killed. They
succeeded , however , In getting around the
obstruction and resumed their Journey cast-
ward about 3:30 : a. m. today. Superintendent
Derby , when notified by wlro that the train
selzers were again In motion , ordered four
engines , which had been awaiting develop
ments at Arlington , seventy-five miles from
here , to go east rapidly as possible. He
also ordered another locomotive to be ditched
near Haswcll , which Is beyond Arlington.
Not a train except the stolen one Is now
running on the Missouri Pacific In Colorado.
The tank at Ordway , ten miles beyond Olney ,
has been emptied and water for the locomo
tive can be secured only from wells. No
little anxiety was felt when It was learned
that the track around the engine was com
pleted lest the Industrials should cut the
telegraph wires , but the train went through
without any molestation of the wires. It
will bo almost Impossible to pursue the army
from this direction , since to build their tracks
around the ditch they have taken up 100
feet of rails. United States Marshal Jones
In Denver has been advised of the Interfer
ence with the movement of the malls and
counsel for the Missouri Pacific In Denver
has been Instructed to apply to the federal
court for an Injunction to prevent further
Interference by Sanders and his men.
The stolen train encountered Its second ob
struction at Haswell , twelve miles east of
Arllgton , whore the four engines sent for
ward by order of Superintendent Derby had
all been ditched In a bunch. On reaching
the spot the Industrials discovered the over
turned engines In time to avoid a collision
and at once B3t to work laying tracks
around them. In a short time they had left
the'wrecked engines behind and .proceeded

CHICAGO , May 9 The Western Freight
association Is In a very bad way , and It
would not bo a great surprise If It went to
pieces entirely. The Atchlson today gave
notice of withdrawal from the Western'
Trunk Line committee and also from tha
Western , IFrolght association , the formcn
withdrawal taking effect at once and thin
latter within a few days.
A general meeting of the managers ot thflf
association lines was held this afternoon ta
prevent the > low rates put Into effect to tliQ
Missouri river from being extended to Omahw
and Council Bluffs. Before the meeting hail
made any progress the Burlington tipped !
over the apple cart by announcing that IK
would make the same rate on first class
matter to Council Bluffs as now prevails
to the lower Missouri river points , Tim
general managers then decided to put tha
question ot meeting the Burlington's rate
over until tomorrow and took up the mat
ter of making tlio low rates effective eastbound -
bound as well as to the west
The Alton announced that It was going to
reduce the rates on live stock and dressed !
beet. Then they decided to take up tha
question of rates through Omaha again , anit
met the rates of Tuesday on all tilings mivo
live stock , and that will bo considered to *
The Atchlsorr also threw .1 bomb Into the
camp of the Southwestern Freight associa
tion , which has been patiently holding ses
sions all week , by declaring It would not at
tend any more meetings of that body. This
virtually means the entire disruption ot tha
Southwestern association.
The affairs of the Western Passenger as
sociation took a favorable turn today ami
there Is a prospect that the Union Pacllla
will come Into the emigrant clearing house ,
although It Is not expected to como Into the
association just now. A plan Is being dis
cussed of dividing the association , locating
onc-liulf east of the Missouri river and the
balance to the west of It. This may recelvo
consideration at the meeting of the associa
tion to be held tomorrow.
The annual election of the Burlington waH

CHICAGO , May 9. ( Special Telegram to
The Bee. ) In further correspondcnce'regifrd-
ing the withdrawal of-tlio Wisconsin Central
from the Western Passenger association ;
General Passenger Agent Pond assures the
association that his line will inaugurate no
demoralization. lie will notify the associa
tion of any changes In rates his line miiy- ,
make. It also will remain a membsr of the Im
migrant agreement , with which the Wiscon
sin Central Is fully satisfied.
Notice of withdrawal from the Western
Freight association on May 19 was given
today by the Atchlson. Ordinarily such an
announcement would bo an all day's sensa
tion among western lines , but the rate situa
tion Is so hopelessly bad that it hardly cre
ated a ripple. The notlco by no means an
ticipates u policy demoralization on tha
part of the Atchtson. It simply means that It
wants to be in a position where It Is tin-
trammeled by association rules In meeting ;

not take the Initiative In further demoraliza
It was hoped that the day's meeting of the
Western Freight officials could do sometliliifj
toward Improving the situation , but that
hope was blasted before the meeting was two
minutes old. The first break came In tha
announcement of Omaha lines that they ,
would adopt to and via Omaha the reduc
tions already announced to Colorado and
lower Missouri river gateways. Then came
the break foreshadowed In Tlio Bee yester
day morning on dressed bcaf , packing housa
products and live Block from the Missouri to
Chlcagoi It became so manifest that one or
more lines would announce the reductions
that It was agreed to cut the castbound ratea
In two , making a IG-cent rate oh dressed
beef and u 12-cent rate on packing house ,
products from Kansas City and Omaha to
Chicago. Tills forced corresponding reduc
tions In live stock rates , and proportions oC
through rates from the Missouri to Chicago
were made of 1C cents on cattle and 12 cents
on hogs and sheep. Other reductions In mer
chandise rates would have been made had.
there not been a rather hurried adjournment
to at least postpone the announcement. They ,
are certain to como , however.
In their present temper traffic officials will
let the tall go with the hide , and allow all
rates to seek their own level. The worst
feature of the situation from a railroad
standpoint Is that no concerted attempt la
being made to Improve matters. No twa
roads arc acting In harmony. The situation
may Improve fully as soon If no attempt Is
made to restore rates until they have ,
reached rock bottom , but the wait IK apt
to bo u costly ono.
