NEW YORK. Jan. 25. At a meeting of
delegatea of tho United Irish-American
Societies of New York, presided over by
Daniel F. Colahan tonight, resolutions were
adopted denouncing the trial and death sen
tence of Colonel Arthur Lynch aa a trav
esty on Justice.
The resolution says In part:
We desire to express our belief that the
British government will not dare to carry
out the sentence imposed upon Colonel
Lynch, and alxo to point out that the ac
tion of an Kngllwh court In finding h man
who had become In due form a naturalised
cltlxen of another country guilty of treason-
to England, In unjuxt, unfair and a
gross ylnlntion of all the conditions under
whlfh millions of citizens had been added
to the population of this country.
At this time, when Kiiftlsnd for Its own
aelnh purposes U attempting to conceal
Its enmity to America under the guise of
friendship In order the more thorouKhly to
avail Itself of our strength and power, It
endeavors to set said one of the cardinal
principles of otir Institutions and to take
from tis one of the greatext sources of our
We denounce Its action as cowardly,
brutal and tyrannical and predict that It
will only serve to call the attention of the
World to the fact that as you cannot change
the spots of the leopard, so you ennot
make the Kngllsh government anything
but stupid, bloodthirsty, cowardly and
National Societies Conservative.
A conference of representatives of the
national Irish societies was also held to
consider the question ot taking concerted
action on behalf of Colonel Lynch.
About fifty delegates were present when
R. J. Kennedy, president ot the United
Irish league called the meeting to order.
Thomas H. Romayne, addressing the
I advocate a policy of silence an fnl
aa tho American Irish are concerned.
Twenty million Irish must have a heavy
Influence In Kngland In case they movo
conservatively. Therefore 1 think It best
to await I nst rjct ions from Ireland, and
especially from Australia, where Colonel
Lynch was horn, and where, of course,
a deep feeling In his behalf must exist.
I'nless I am misinformed a telegram was
received In this city today from an Aus
tralian gentleman, saying that steps have
lieen taken there to Invoke the clemency
of the king In Mr. Lynch's behalf.
Mr. Romayne advocated tbe appointment

PORTLAND, On., Jan. 25. The heavy
rains of the past forty-eight hours have
enured the anow In the Cascade and coast
range mountains to melt rapidly, and all
the streams flowing into the WllKametto
river bavo become torrents-
Advices from tbe upper river today show
that the Wllllamette is higher than ever
before recorded, and much damage bas been
done to farms along the river bottoms.
Many booms ot logs have broken away and
several million feet of saw logs set adrift.
On account of the high water it became
necessary today to close the locks at Ore
gon City to navigation.
The river at thla city rose three feet
during last night, and tonight stands fifteen
feet above low water. The weather bureau
predlcta a further rise on account ot the
large volume of water in the upper river,
though so serious damage has resulted
along the water front.
No through trains arrived over the South
ern Pacific today on account ot tbe wash
out between Harrlsburg and Junction City.
The road Is now dear south of Eugene

At Eugene., ore., tne wiuiametie river

AT THE PLAYHOUSES
"Ole Olaoa" at the' Iloyd.
Ben Hendricks haa been coining to
Omaha for tho laat thirteen years with his
"Ole Olson" makeup and dialect, but the
size of the house he drew at fie Boyd lsst
night would seem to Indicate that the
play and the player have lost none of
their charm for the people. Ole Olson
la an humble hero, but nonetheless a
pleasing one. snd the people apparently
like to watch his strugtje with the Eng
lish language, a loving cook-lady and a
bunch of villains at th same time. He
overcomes the latter, circumvents the sec
ond, and gives up the first as a task too
great for his tongue, which has been thick
ened by a descent from vikings who didn't
wsste time tslklng. Ole is saalsted along
the way by a number of persons who have
things to do with the working out of the
plot of the play. Several of these show
much cleverness, and all work together
with a harmony that makes the play move
smoorbly. One of the Interpolate. 1 fea
tures Is the Swedish Ladles' quartet, the
members having well trained voices which
chime melodiously in the folk-songs and
English numbers rendered. Thla waa an
especially delightful part of the perform
ance last night. "Ole Olson" will be re
peated thla evening.
Vaudeville at the I relahton-Orpheaat.
Two large audiences passed a verdict of
approval ou the bill at the Crelghton
Orpheum yesterday. No one of tbe acts
stands out with any startling prominence
above the level of excellence set for this
house during tbe present season, but all
are so near the mark that It would not be
overstating the truth to aay that the bill
Is the best balanced that has been given
yet. Cole and Johnson are In many ways
entitled to the honors. They are Imbued
with the true artistic spirit, and 'are
musicians of more than ordinary ability,
being possessed of carefully cultivated
voices and having extensive knowledgo of
the piano, the only Instrument they use.
Their songs are mostly of their own com
position, and are sung with good, taste.
And be It to their credit said they refuse
to sing "coon" soi.gs. Miss Dorothy Wal
ters whlstleB most tunefully, some of her
numbers being extremely difficult, and
Jamea H. Cullen sings a bunch ot his own
parodies on popular songs in a way that la
his own. Olivette Is a clever Juggler, do.'B
some mystifying work In the way of palm
ing cards and coins, spins tambourines In
a way never seen here before and doca
aome exceedingly clever shadowgraph work.
Purcell and Maynard do a pleasing sketch
and the Columbian trio also make good In
Its act. Some new and popular pictures are
shown bv the klnodrome.

PORT TOWNSEND, Wash., Jan. 25. The

a tempestuous voyage.
The entire trip waa marked by a succes
sion of accidents. 8oon after starting

the result that the fresh water supply waa
consumed. Then fuel ran short and the
vessel was forced to resort to such canvaa
as could be fashioned Into sails. It put

only to run into fierce etorma, which drove
It from Its course. Again fuel ran out, so
Dawson City headed for'' Dutch Harbor
to refill bunkers and tank si At this port
the sailors deserted and refused to con
tinue tne voyage. The run from Dutch
Harbor to thla port was made in twenty
two days, which Is considered a very good

No one is anxious to get more than their share,
yet a few people still buy soda crackers in bags.
Crackers sold from a can or barrel are likely to
collect dust and other things in the cleanest of grocer
ies. The store must be swept; boxes and barrels
moved and the cracker box uncovered now and then
for a thoughtless buyer.
If you don't want to eat a peck of dirt
buy Unoeda Biscuit in the airtight, dust-proof,
moisture proof In-er-seal Package with red and white
seal. Baked and packed in perfect cleanliness they

Whether bought at the general store in the

Chateau d'lf (or Sale.
Every reader of Dumas knows the Cha

part of "Monte Cristo." Of course, Ed

purely imaginary cbaractera, aaya the New
York Tribune, but Dumas' descriptive
powers breathed such life Into them that
many visitors to the Chateau d'lf' ask to
sea the cells where the heroea of the
novel were Incarcerated. It la reported
that the keeper of the castle made a very

If they will study carefully the following
poem from the. St. Mary's (O.) Graphic:
By W. U. Meffc.rd.
Let me go to Old Kentucky,
Where the raccoon la hard to track
And the roads so very crooked.
You meet yourself a-comlng back.
'The other side."
But the road is very pleasant,
And the scenery something fine,
Yes, the air In so refreHhlng
That you think It Is divine.
Let me go to Old Kentucky.
Where the sky is pierced with hills.
And between thtise rugged mountains
Stands the little water mills.
"Tbe other side."
But they are run by Nature
, And not by th power of steam.
And when they go a-vlsltlng
They use their old oa team.
Let me go to Old Kentucky, '
Where they carry the gun and knife.
But lt a only for self-protection
And not to take your life.
"The other side."
But they treat you like a white man.
If you are down In th South
You are alwaya feeling good you know,
And not down in the mouth.
