LONDON, Sept. 24. (.Special Cablegram.)
Development at ttie United Irish
league convention In Huffalo next week
are awaited with great Interest In both
British and Irish circle. It Is believed
that the proceedings, supplemented by the
tour to be mnde by Messrs. Redmond,
iJevlin, O'Connor and Daniel Hoyle
through the United Htates and Canada,
will Influence profoundly the early future
of the Irish national movement.
Of the four delegates Mr. Hoyle alone
la not personally familiar to Americans.
Though a member of Parliament from
North Mayo, he goes to the convention an
a representative of Ireland. For many
years he has rendered splendid service to
the Irish cause In Lancashire, As an
alderman 'of Manchester he has won the
confidence of men of all political, and re

Ing tour from St. Louis, San Francisco,
Los Ange!ea and Tacoma Is expected to
prove one of the most Important arranged
for the Irish chief and his companions on
Many Meetings to He Held.
What will give peculiar significance to
the convention and the scores of meetings
to follow la the fact that the national
directory la determined to make a broad
appeal to non-Irish Americans.
Financial considerations are secondary
In the plans of the directory, so far as the
American effort la concerned. Of course
the cause la largely dependent on the gen
erosity of the "exiles beyond the Atlan
tic," and without such during the last two
years It could not possibly have been ad
vanced to the present highly promising
base. But the Immediate objective of the
brilliant Irish quartet is to arouse Ameri

CHICAGO, Sept. 24. (Special Telegram.)
The body of Michael Hold, a wealthy
real estate dealer of Posers' Park, was
found today in a secluded spot on the
north brancln of the Chicago liver with a
handkerchief wound tightly round the
neck. The police are Investigating his
death on the theory that the victim was
lured to the place and strangled by rob
bers or personal enemies., Hold was. 50
years old and lived at 110 Lunt avenue.
The police Immediately began work on
llio theory that Rold had been murdered,
but at every stage of the preliminary In
vestigation they were baffled. It ap
peared to be one of the most mysterious
mysteries In the annals of the police de
partment. Mr. Rold had been inisatng from home
since Thursday. Members of the family
were emphatic In the belief that he had
been murdered. The motive for the aup-
posed crime, however. Is o mystery which
the police attempted to unravel. Robbery
was not the motive, as a gold watch and
chain and a purse containing S3K.20 were
found In the victim's clothing.
