was simply a ruse to get Into the room and

to open the door slightly, Mrs. Solomonson

DEVLIN FEELS WELl"pLEASED
Eavor of Irish Party Delighted with
Character of Receptions
Given la America.
TOT Wn!t PTWTTT C0k
Mr. Joseph Devlin, M. P. for North Kil
kenny, Ireland, and Colonel Jobn F.
Flnerty of Chicago arrived here yesterday
morning and are at the Paxton hotel, where
they will attend a reception glvea them by
the Irishmen of the city at S o'clock to
Mr. Devlin Is the accredited envoy of tbo
Irish party In the House of Commons and
was selected to come to this country as
the representative of the t'nlted Irish league
by the largest and most Influential conven
tion ever held in Ireland. His object Is to
arouse In this country a feeling of sym
pathy for Ireland In the fight now being
waged for land and liberty. Speaking to a
representative of The Bee, Mr. Devlin ex
pressed his deep satisfaction with the suc
cess of his mission to the United Ststes. In
the esst he had been warmly received every
where he visited, and from all sections
of his countrymen, as well as from many
American friends of Ireland, be had re
ceived the most substantial proof of prac
tical Interest In the Irish cause. la coming
to America he addressed his countrymen
and all lovers of liberty ae the spokesman
and authoritative agent of a united Irish
people. The spirit of unity was never so
complete aad ths people have now, he
states, one organisation representing all
sections of thought In Ireland.
"There has not been." said Mr. Devlin,
"eveu In the glorious days cf Mr. PsrneU's
leadership, so powerful an organisation In
this country or so unified a parliamentary
fartjr aa our country caa boast of today.
And the result Is that the people, by their
union and organisation on fighting lines,
have brought the Irish landlords to their
knees and hare the promise of a complete
settlement of the land question. Not only
that, but we are almost certain that a
measure of, national self-government will
be Introduced In the near future, and if
these two great reforms were carried noth
ing could stsnd in the wsy of Ireland's
prosperity and growth as one of the pro
gressive and clvlllr.lng agencies In the
world. All that we require is that the
Irish race in the United States and the
Irish people at home stand together, and
If they do an organized effort on such lines
will be Irresistible.
'I trust to have the pleasure of explain
ing the situation here fully at the recep
tion at the Paxton tomorrow night, where
I hope to meet the patriotic Irishmen of
the city, as well as those Americans who
sympathise with our cause. Colonel Fln
erty, who Is the president of the United
Irish League of America, will also deliver
an address, and no man In this country
is better able to expound the Irish situa
tion. His official position as chief execu
tive officer of the league in this country
should add great weight to bis opiniona
on the great and Important changes now
being brought about in Ireland."

- If the decision of the Bricklayers' union,
leached Tuesday night, la sustained by the
Building Trsdes council, an attempt will be
made to make permanent the retirement
from trade of those dealers in building ma
terial who announced their temporary re
tirement last week.
The members of the unions connected
with the building trades say that the action
of the material men leaves no doubt that
they have Joined the contractors la an at
tempt to coerce all contractors Into being
bound by the regulations of the contractors'
organisation In regard to the payment of
wages aad the hours of labor.
It was reported at the meeting of the
Hod Carriers' union that contractors em
ploying nonunion labor had received ma
terial during the week, but the person mak
ing the report could not say from what
dealer the material waa secured. This
added to the feeling of the members of the
union, so when the Bricklayers' union met
last night a resolution was adopted, sub
ject to the approval of the Building Trades
council, to the effect that the union men
would bsndle no material from the Arms
which have refused to deliver goods to
those contrsctors who have agreed to pay
the scsle of the unions.
lleved ' that there would have been no
trouble had the hod carriers' troubles have
been settled by May 1, but now It Is an

association that no promises made hereto
