DUBLIN, April 17. The Irish national
convention, concluded this evening. In two
days It got through a large amount of con
troversial work and emerged, to quote T. P.
O'Connor, "icathlees and honored from a
test the whole world was watching. It was
not only shaping the destinies of Ireland,
but it held in its hand the fate of the Brit
ish ministry." t i
John Redmond, replying to an enthuslas-
tic vote of thanks for his chairmanship, de
clared that the convention was a credit In
every particular to Ireland and afterward I
announced that the amendments adopted by
the convention would be accepted at the
joint conference at which Lord Dunraven,
Lord Mayo, Captain Sbawe-Taylor, John
Redmond.' William O'Brien and T. W. Rus

passage of the Irish land bill.

claring that the Irish nation would never
be satisfied until It obtained a full measure
of self-government. "No substitute." said
Mr. Redmond, "can or will b accepted."
Michael Davltt briefly seconded the resa
luVon, saying Irishman would be neglect
ing their sacred dutiea to the cause it they
did not aend such a message to their raca
throughout the world.
Mr. Redmond's recommendation was car
ried by acclamation.
William O'Brien then proceeded to ex
plain the various suggested amendments to
the land bill.
An amendment of Mr. O'Brien provided
for extending financial assistance to evicted
tenants was welcomed by many of the dele
gates, who wished It to go further.

This peasant orator worked up a storm
against "grabbers," but Mr. O'Brlon's mora
moderate counsels prevailed.
Throughout the morning peasant speak

Mr. OBrlen's suggestions as a rule were
passed without division.
Michael Davltt fought Mr. O'Brien's
peasant proprietorship proposals. He main
tained that the nationalization of the land
was the only method by which Ireland
could be made prosperous,, but when a divi

a compromise, with the result that the con

well known theories, but retained Mr.
The convention concluded without auy
special incident. A resolution was passed
demanding the immediate release of
Colonel Lynch and Mr. Kilbride,, a former
member of Parliament. . Major Jameson and
Jasper Tully, members of Parliament, were
read out of the party for "dereliction of

A motion was passed urging Thomas Sex

John Redmond and Lord Dunraven had
an informal meeting this morning and de
cided to postpone the sittings of the land
lord and tenants' conference, which will
probably be held in London next week.
