gratifying reception last evening at th

Its capacity with Irish-Americans and
other In sympathy with thework Dr. Hyde
The meeting via railed to order by C..J.

of the work .reprosented by Dr. Hyde and
of the need for Irishmen to support him.
Dr. Hyde delivered his address In a most
forceful manner. ' Every word he uttered
seemed to. carry with It a conviction born
ef the heart. He spoke as he-felt. Re
peatedly was he cheered to the echo. The
president ,of the Gaelic league has been
touring the eastern cities and will proceed
to the coast from here.

, What Dr. Hyde sald.
Dr.. Hyde's , address was In part as fol
lows: I am not .exaggerating when I say that
I look upon the- moral support of the
Irish In America to he the most valuable
asset Uat the. Gaelic league nt home could
have: because every man and woman In
Ireland today has a relative many of them
have a dosen relatives here In the Vn'ted
States; and the Immense reflex Influence
. which you here In America can wield If
vou wlHh to .wleld It upon Irish opinion Its,
in my opinion, of more Importance for us
to possess ourselves of thnn any other as
set whatsoever. I would sooner have the
moral support of the Irish In America than
I2CJ.CC0 poured Into the Gaelic league to
morrow. I am here tonight to explain to you the
life and death struggle upon which we are
engaged In Ireland.'
We have -now opened the eyes of the
Irish race to the- awful yawning chasm
which gaped beneath us. over which a
slfigln false footstep would have taken us
the awful chasm ef Angllclzatlon, which,
believe- me. Is only another name for na
tional extinction, njid when you In Amer
ica understaud that and I shall fall In my
mission tonight If I don't make you under
xtund It then. I know-you will Join us In
raying to the devouring demon of Annihila
tion whose foul and gluttonous Jaws have
swallowed everything that was hereditary,
natural, instinctive, ancient. Intellectual
and noble in, our Irish people our lan

danoes and our pastimes I know and say

The movement tin whtcH we are en
gaged tonight Ik not - the movement of a
.few faddists.-'; It -.was thought to be so.
That time has long gone by. One of the
most remarkable of the Oaellc league fes

ever before, and I could Hot tell which was

So, you see that-we are no clique, we are

and beyond all. politics, all parties and all

It was niy in this way that Mr. White

Vie iitnmert un In one word: we have ceased

Is to this cause that I attrloute more man
to anything else our awful emigration and
Impoverishment. Irishmen leave Ireland
today because they have ceased to feel that
thev' have a country. They will not accept
England as their country, and yet In the
Ireland that the Gaelic league found before
It there was nothing to suggest to them
anvthlng else thnn an Imitation England,
anil the public mind had become hopelessly
confused and Irishmen had no standard to'
live by and they emigrated In their thou
sands. ' Threatened with Extinction.
Well, I said at the outset that I would
have failed in my mission tonight If I did
not convince vou that Ireland was really
threatened with national extinction in the
most far-reaching and vital sense of the
word; and I think I have shown you that It
was. I said I would put my finger on the
blots, and now you will ask me what have
we done to fill them? 1 will tell you. A
dozen years ago Irish was taught In less
than a dozen schools; six years ago it was
taught in 105 schools; today It Is taught,
more or less. In something over 3.0H0 of the
R,00 schools of Ireland. Between public
and parochial schools, between colleges and
convents, there cannot be less than iWiCO
people now studying to read and write the
language. Six years ago. In intermediate
education only 20 pupils passed in Irish;
last year over 2.0UO.
Six years ago no stranger coming to Ire
land would have seen anything to tell him
that he was not In a big, vulgarized Eng
lish county. Now, In many of the large
towns and In Dublin, the capital, ynu see
the names of the streets put up and the
names of the roads and the names of the
towns printed In Irish capitals ab the cor
ner of the streets, and you know that ymi
are not In Bngland. Six years ago scarcely
a paper printed a word of our language.
Nojur all the national dally papers and very
many of the weekly papers print columns
of it. Six years ago an Irish book was a
rarity that appeared only at Intervals of
many months. Now not a week goes by
but a new book printed In Irish Is Issued
from the press, and the distribution of
books and pamphlets from our own office
alone, not to speak of the booksellers, has
been -something over 250,000 for every year
of the last four.

Resolved. That it !s the sense of this
meeting that the present tariff on whlt
pine rough lumber ImiKirted from Canada
would be removed at the present session of
congress. This was because the present
tariff on rough white pine lumber Imported
from tTanada increases the cost of the raw
material to a point where competition from
Cnnadian manufacturers and substitution
of other and cheaper woods threaten the
existence of the profitable manufacture of
white pine products.

of the association and will be an Immense

Gould Dletz has bought the attractive

the Humbird Lumber company and will
move It to Lake Munawa, as soon as the

make a most pleasant summer house for

but the bare house. He says tho only
trouble is the doors are not large enough
for him to drive his automobile through.

CRITICISM OF HAMILTON
New York Life Oommittse Mikes Partial
Eaport to Director.
ASK ACCOUNTING FOR1 VAST SUMS
Former President MrCall Itlamed
for tllorrlnar Disburse
ments In Irregular
NEW YORK. Feb. 8. The special com
mittee appointed by the trustees of the
New York life Insurance company to
Investigate the affairs of the company to
day made a psrtlal report of Its labors
to the directors. This report deals only
with the relations of Andrew Hamilton,
the legislative agent, with the company
and is a severe arraignment of his methods.
John A. McCall, late president of the
New York Life, also comes In for a share
of the committee's criticism. He Is blamed
for his methods In connection with the
"bureau of taxation and legislation" during
the last ten years, and for allowing Hamil
ton to pay out vast sums without a proper
accounting. Special attention Is called to
remittances of $10,000 to McCall In London
and 1134,500 to Hamilton In Paris In 1W.
The purposes of these remittances, the
committee says, it has been unable to
ascertain, and recommends that proceed
ings be Instituted against Hamilton and
McCall for an accounting or repayment.
The committee adds on this point that
application has been made to Mr. McCalt
for Information regarding the transactions,
but that it is Informed by Mr. McCall's
family that his physical and nervous condi
tion Is such that the subject cannot bo
taken up at present. As to Mr. Hamilton's
health, which has been represented as being
bad, the committee says It has been In
formed that he was physically able to
travel and has exerted every effort to
Induce him to return to make a full dis
closure of his payments, disbursements and
transactions, but without success.
Want Money Refunded.
The committee also holds both McCall
and Hamilton responsible for $75,000 ad
vanced to Hamilton to pay the state tax
and which the committee declares was used
by Hamilton for his own purposes. The
committee Is ndvtsed that both are liable
for this sum. The committee maintains
also that It Is a matter for legal adjudica
tion as to whether George W. Perkins of
the firm of J. P. Morgan & Co. is not
liable for the payments of Hamilton's notes
for 859,310. Mr. Perkins paid this account,
the committee holds, out of the New York
Life Insurance company's share of profits
In Its participation In a United States Steel
corporation syndicate. The committee holds
also that the payment of these notes by
the company wns unwarranted. It Is only
Just to Mr. Perkins to say, the report
adds, that he acted In the matter In entire
good faith, that he derived no benefit from
the transaction and that his liability, if
any, is a technical one.
The committee recommends that the law
department of the company institute ap
propriate legal proceedings to carry Into
effect the findings and conclusions of this
The report is signed by T. P. Fowler.

gustus G. Paine and Clarence IL Mackay
and was unanimously adopted.
Hamilton's Statement! Too General.
The committee states In beginning Its re
port that it has made, with the
loyal and efficient aid of the com
pany's officers, thorough and exhaustive
examinations of the relations with Alexan
der Hamilton and of payments of money
to him. For none of these payments, the
committee states, Is there any receipt or
voucher than that given by Hamilton, and
there Is no evidence from which the com
mittee or the officers of the company can
state to whom or on what occasion, or for
what specific purpose, the sums received
by Hamilton were paid out by him. Tho
average annual sum of 861.000 was paid to
Hamilton from the years 189S to 1906 In
clusive. Whether this was an unreasonable
excessive sum the committee has no means
of determining. The generalities of Ham
ilton's Paris statement furnish no aid In
forming a conclusion on the subject. It Is
a fact, the report continues, that measures
of legislation are proposed every year In
various states, which. If enacted, would be
Injurious and oppressive to life Insurance
companies and their policy holders. Tho
expense of obtaining Information about
these measures and of employing counsel
or Insurance experts to oppose them, or
secure proper .amendments, Is obviously a
necessary and legitimate expenditure. It
may be that the great bulk of the sum an
nually disbursed by Hamilton was used for
these legitimate purposes. The committee
has no Information that any of It was put
to illegitimate uses. But the fact that thero
Is no Information In the records of tho com
pany showing to whom the money was paid
nor for what purpose, the report declares,
condones the methods and system which
have been In vogue during the last ten
years. For every dollar paid out there
should be a voucher showing to whom It
was paid and for what purpose. ;
Hamilton' Tax Rakrolt, I
On October 18, 1'jirt. the court of appeals '
handed down a decision under which the
New York Life Insurance company was
allowed a tax credit of $271,703. This could
not be drawn in cash, but portions of H
were assigned to nine other companies for
That sum was collected by or for Hamil
ton," reports the committee, "and has been
retained by him wlthopt any entry thereof
In the books of the company."
The committee sets forth that this was
explained by the fact that Mr. McCall
had made an arrangement that Hamilton
was to have one-third of the tux savings
under the legal proceeding. This arrange
ment the committee characterizes as im
provident and suggests that Hamilton
should lie called upon to establish his legal
right to retain the !0.:iS6.
' Your committee having been Informed
thnt Hamilton was physic-ally able to
tn vel, has exerted eyery effort to induce
him to return to make a full disclosure
of his transactions, but without success.
Your committee recommends that the
law department lie Instructed to commence
appropriate legal proceedings to carry Into
effect the findings and conclusions of this
The committee's report contains the state,
ment that It was Informed that Mr. Mc
Call is too ill to be questioned concerning
the matters under investigation.
