Parnell Commission Inquiry on Vacation

Post by Karen on Mon 25 Feb 2013 - 16:12

GOVERNMENT OF IRELAND.
THE LEAGUE TO BE ATTACKED.

The London Correspondent of the Irish Times is informed that more than usually energetic action is about to be taken against such branches of the League in Ireland as directly encourage boycotting, or the "Plan of Campaign." Special attention will be paid to branches which have formed Vigilance Committees to interfere with the free sale of cattle from boycotted farms. In addition to the suppression of these branches under the powers of the Crimes Act, the individuals taking part in the offensive proceedings, and the National newspapers which publish intimidatory or criminal resolutions, will be prosecuted without exception.

COMBINATION AND BOYCOTTING.
THE TENANTS' "SWORD AND SHIELD."

United Ireland contains a very characteristic article: - "There is too little intolerance of evil," it says. "This is no time for meek-tongued moderation. Lord Lansdowne desolates a countryside, and has cruelly made hundreds of fathers, mothers, and children miserable. But we must speak of him with respectful courtesy. So with "brave Balfour." Yet few men in history have shown themselves at once so cowardly, mean, and cruel. So with the whole gang of Coercionists. It is for the people to distinguish between their friends and enemies, and draw the line sharp and clear. Every method short of violence, or outrage, or surrender is legitimate to a sorely oppressed people. Resolute combination and vigorous boycotting are their sword and shield. Every man in the army of the coercionist and exterminator, down to the humblest camp-follower, is an enemy of the people, and should be so treated."

ARRESTED AS "SUSPECTS."

Two Americans were arrested at Tullamore, today, on their way to Westmeath with a quantity of suspicious luggage.

The murder of Dr. Cronin at Chicago, the entanglement of several of the most pronounced anti-English Irishmen in the bloody business, and the alleged misappropriation - or the appropriation for personal purposes - of hundreds of thousands of dollars, throw a lurid light athwart the doings and dealings of certain secret societies of Irishmen in America.
But it is an ill wind that blows nobody good. Most of the diverted money was, it is said, intended to be used in the purchase of dynamite for the destruction of life and property in London and other large English towns. Query: Which is best - Dishonourably pocketing the money, or permitting it to be used for purposes of promiscuous destruction thousands of miles away?

THE CRONIN MYSTERY.
DOCTOR'S FEARS OF SULLIVAN.

WARNED BY LE CARON OF HIS FATE.
THE CLAN-NA-GAEL FUNDS.

Singular testimony was given at the Cronin inquest as to the allegations that Sullivan had diverted $100,000 of the Clan-Na-Gael funds. The bank books show that Sullivan, who was a man of small resources, deposited that sum in two drafts on Monroe and Company, of Paris. Sullivan drew $90,000 by cheques signed "Alexander Sullivan, Agent, payable to Lester and Co., grain dealers." As to Lester, the Times Correspondent says that it is said that Sullivan speculated in stocks and grains with him when he got possession of the Clan-Na-Gael funds. Dr. Cronin's charge was (the Times Correspondent adds) that Mr. Sullivan had lost the Clan-Na-Gael's money in speculating, instead of expending it on dynamite to blow up buildings in England - that being the object intended. Mr. Sullivan, on being asked about this evidence, said he had nothing to conceal, and that he could fully explain the account in the Bank Books when the proper judicial proceedings require it.

HIS EXTRAORDINARY FEARS OF SULLIVAN.

Singularly enough, too, evidence was given that Cronin had made repeated statements expressing fear of Sullivan. Joseph O'Byrne, the senior guardian of Camp 366 of the Clan-Na-Gael, swore, so the New York Herald reports, the day before the physician disappeared, that Dr. Cronin had told him he was badly discouraged, and believed he would give up. "Let those rascals, Alexander Sullivan and Recorder of Police Michael Boland, complete their murderous designs, and kill him," O'Byrne declared he heard M'Gahan say. Maurice Morris, a retired metal manufacturer, knew Dr. Cronin well. The Doctor - so this witness is reported to have said - several times told him he expected to be assassinated.
"From whom did Dr. Cronin say he expected danger?" "From Alexander Sullivan."
"Are you (Morris was asked) a member of the United Brotherhood?" "Yes; Camp No. 266."
"Did you ever hear any member threaten Dr. Cronin's life?" "I heard John Finerty say once, "We must get rid of these d-----d doctors," meaning Dr. Cronin and M'Cahey. I heard M'Gahan say, "These d------d doctors should be shot." McGarry, the proprietor of a boiler-making establishment, deposed - "I knew Dr. Cronin intimately. After the trial in Buffalo he said to me, "Mac, I believe that man Alex. Sullivan will be the instigator of my murder, if ever I am murdered. There are papers in Conklin's house that will prove what I say. I am determined to show up Alexander Sullivan's treachery and thievery to the Irish people, even if my life is taken for it."

THE "TRIANGLE" AND THE $350,000.

It is reported (so the Standard Correspondent says) that Dr. Cronin's papers to be put in evidence raise questions as to the disposal of $350,000 during several years by the "Triangle," viz., Sullivan, Boland, and Feely. It is reported, though (says the Correspondent) without adequate authority, that the Committee of Six who tried Cronin consisted of Larry Buckley, Frank Murray, John O'Malley, Henry Le Caron, Daniel Coughlin, and one man who is unknown. From these sources some surprising evidence is expected.

MAKE PEACE WITH YOUR ENEMIES.

A considerable sensation has been created in Chicago by the exhibition of an autograph letter, dated April 22, and signed "Beach," addressed to Dr. Cronin. It was written by Le Caron. The letter warns the murdered man of his impending doom, and urges him to make peace with his enemies as the only means of saving himself from death.

THIS DAY'S NEWS.
THE CRONIN MURDER.

ALEXANDER SULLIVAN ARRESTED.
CLAN-NA-GAEL CONDEMNED BY THE JURY.
[REUTER'S TELEGRAM.]

CHICAGO, June 12. - The Coroner's Jury in the inquest on the body of the late Dr. Cronin have given their verdict. They hold Alexander Sullivan, P.O. Sullivan, Daniel Coughlin, and Frank Woodruff to the principals in or accessories to the murder. The verdict denounces the murder as "a most foul and brutal crime," and the authorities are solicited to offer a reward for evidence tending to unearth the conspiracy. The verdict further declares that the Clan-Na-Gael and similar societies are injurious to American institutions. Many of the witnesses gave their evidence with considerable reluctance, and evidently with mental reserve. Alexander Sullivan, while retiring from the Court, was arrested and lodged in jail, the others being already in prison.

O'DONOVAN ROSSA'S FUNDS.
FROM THE SECRET SERVICE MONEY.

Mr. Labouchere writes in Truth: - Some time ago I said, in the course of a discussion on the Secret Service money, that a portion of it had gone into the pocket of O'Donovan Rossa. That worthy has been prosecuting the Catholic News for libel in New York. I extract the following from the cross-examination: -
Colonel O'Byrne produced a cheque for $50 from Jim M'Dermott, which had been given to Rossa on the very day M'Dermott was shot at - July 21, 1883: -
Colonel O'Byrne: "is that your name on the back of the cheque?" - "It is," replied Rossa; "he gave me the $50 on the day he was shot at."
"Did you not know him to be a traitor, and publish him in your paper as a traitor for three months previous to the date of that cheque?" - "I did."
"Then why did you take his $50?" - "I knew M'Dermott would make use of the money for a bad purpose, and I used it for a better purpose. If Jim had offered me $20,000, I would only have been too glad to take it."
James McDermott was in 1883 a detective in the employ of Her Majesty's Government, and the $50 paid to Rossa came from funds belonging to Her Majesty's Government. The fact is that I happened to know of this cheque. It was drawn on the Fulton Bank, Brooklyn. In the previous January Rossa had received a cheque for a similar amount from the same source, and I hardly think that any one can be so credulous as to suppose that English Secret Service money was given to Rossa without some sort of quid pro quo from the aforesaid Rossa. I called attention to the fact, not so much from any particular wish to show the sort of person Rossa is, as that I wished to reply to the accusation that the Irish Nationalists were connected with this man's assassination doctrines because they received moneys collected by him; and my reply took the form of showing that their accusers had actually themselves given money to him.

The investigation into the murder of Dr. Cronin at Chicago has produced for the time a deeper impression than the inquiry conducted by the Special Commission, under the presidency of Sir James Hannen. The Boston Pilot says: - "The amazing fact is that at least a dozen persons are connected with the crime." And what makes the bloody business all the more important is that several persons implicated and under arrest are leaders of certain sections of extreme opinion in America.

It is worthy of note that, whilst the investigation by the Special Commission has almost ceased to attract public attention in England, the inquisition into the murder of Dr. Cronin, and the roots and ramifications of the crime, has awakened almost universal interest in America; and one reason why it has done so is that the two investigations, in matters appertaining to money, interlace each other.

The presentation of the Freedom of Edinburgh to Mr. Parnell on July 20th will be with "maimed rites." Not only have large numbers of the citizens protested against the presentation, but the Lord Provost has refused to perform the ceremony. His presence can be dispensed with, but never has the Freedom been offered or accepted under such untoward circumstances.

A CRIMES ACT PRISONER.

Dr. Kearney was released from Cork Jail this morning, after serving two months' imprisonment under the Crimes Act. He was committed on the charge of using intimidating language to two Emergency bailiffs. He was met on his release by a large number of the citizens, and escorted by them and a band to the Corporation Offices, where speeches were delivered.

HOOTING A PRIEST.

At Quin, county Clare, on Wednesday, fourteen men were tried under the Crimes Act for hooting a priest and a principal parishioner accompanying him. The Express Correspondent says the priest, Father Hogan, some time ago, publicly denounced the attempt to shoot Mr. Creagh, a landlord. The defence was that the manifestation was merely of dislike for a rival Athletic Club, of which Father Hogan is a leading official. The ringleader was sentenced to three months' imprisonment, another to two months', and the others to one month's imprisonment each.

ALEXANDER SULLIVAN AND THE PARNELLITES.

Mr. Alexander Sullivan, writes the Leeds Mercury London Correspondent, who has just been arrested in connection with the murder of Dr. Cronin, is well known to the leading members of the Irish Party, and they do not believe that he would be a party to a secret and cowardly crime. Pending the result of the investigation which is now going on, they are inclined to regard the charge against him as due to party animosity, which, strong as it is in this country, is infinitely keener in America. Mr. Sullivan's wife is a journalist, and she represented an American paper, as well as the New York Associated Press, at the Paris exhibition. She is described as a bright, fascinating, and cultured woman.

SHOOTING OF AN EMERGENCY MAN.

The Press Association's Cork Correspondent says: - Further particulars to hand with reference to the outrage on the Emergency man O'Brian, at Ballinlassig, state that he was caretaker at the evicted farm of a man named McCarthy, secretary of the local branch of the National League, who is living at an adjoining farm. It appears that while fencing the boundary lane between these two farms, he was shot at by a tall man who fired from a road quite adjacent. The doctor pronounced the caretaker seriously but not dangerously wounded, and extracted several large grains of shot from the wounded man. A young man named James Lynch was arrested last night in connection with the affair. He is a cousin of Mr. McCarthy, on whose evicted farm O'Brien was working. His description does not in any way tally with the description given by Connolly of the man who fired the shot. The district has been signally free from crime for a long period, and great indignation is expressed by the people of the locality at the outrage.

MR. PARNELL AND THE "TIMES."
THE APPEAL DISMISSED.

In the Queen's Bench, today, Mr. Asquith, in the case of "Parnell v. Walter," of the Times, appealed against a decision in Chambers postponing the hearing of the case until November. The appeal was dismissed. In giving judgment, Mr. Justice Denman and Mr. Justice Charles said the plaintiff really suffered no damage to his character by the delay, as the defendants admitted that they had libelled him, and had paid money into Court.
