U0C1880RSlO I. E OA OB * CO
1^ ^ \ ; ^i \ Keb. A ^ rsrnell was present at^the session of the coiunilsaion to-dsy. He^held a lively conversation with Michael^Davitt. Bo^rh, who is also known as Ur.^^ecaron, continued his evidence. He de^^tailed a conversation which he had with^Alexander Sullivsn In June, IfWi, refsrd-^ing the proposed alliance of the ditlnvnt^Irish organizations in which Mulllvan ssid^norsdlcal change could be effectiHl until^bey had a change of representativt 1 on^this side of the water, which would be very^soon. Sullivan, referring to a visit to Ire^land, which he contemplated making, said^he could not think of allowing Parnell to^^ay his expanses as doing so would place^'arnell in a false position. .Sullivan bit^^terly t^pi^^ M**t the discussion of this matter^in open convention on the ground that it^would leak out and compromise the Psr-^nellite part^.
Witnessas\id John O'Conner, sn agent^employed for carrying arms to Ireland, at^^tended the convention as the representa^tlve of the supreme council of the Irish Ko-^pu hi lean Hrotherhood. The court over^^ruled a objection In behalf of l'aruell that^this evidence was Irrelevant Witness^ssld he ssw Ijotnaaney two days before^joniSHney left America for the purpose ot^carrying out the plan of the campaign by^explosions. Lomasney never returned and^the organization had ever since supported^his family and father. Witness believed^Lomasney and his brother, Michael, per^^ished in the London bridge explosion.^WitnesR continued his testlmoney, telling^of bis attendance st the Chicsgo conven-^ion in January, 18X2. He told of Its organ^^ization, workings, etc During the testi^^mony Parneli appeared in the court room.^Uis entrance created a sensation. Witness^looked steadily at 1'arnell several moments.^Continuing witness said he sent copies of^all the documents of the brotherhood to^the Kngllsh government st the time.
Thewitness said Alexander Sullivan, of^Chicago, once president of the land league,^weut to Ktiglnnd in 1HH2, and remained two^months. After his return, witness con^versed with Sullivan about the plans for the^future warfare against England. WltueKs^said Sullivan told him In future men would^be chosen for work who did not exceed or^^ders, like Uallagher, who gave himself^away, enabllug Jim McDermott to get in^^formation. Sullivan ss'd they would con^^tinue to send men to England to carry on^an active dynamite war. Witness further^said that lu a circular lesued in 1KK3, every^branch of the organization was command^ed to endeavor to nerfect itself in some^particular branch of warfare.
Anopen convention of the league met in^Philadelphia April 25, 1HHS. Wltnuss at^^tended as a ('Ian Na-^Jael delegate of the^liraedwood, 111., camp. He also rente^seuted the league. Kg an did not attend the^secret meetings, hut he requested witness^to Inform him of all the details of tbe dis^^cussions and declared the programme wsa^ssita'actory to all th^* newosHsfa. Chief^Justice Ilsnnen asked what he mesnt by^^rogramme, and witness replied be mesnt^^he united programme for (he future. Wit^^ness said he aaw Kgan constantly during^he convention. A*tef the convention the^and league became the national league, of^which Sullivan was president Thomas^Krennau attended the secret meetings,^which It would have been impossible tor^him to have attended unless he he had been^a member of ^K. K. B.^ or *'M. B
Attorney(teneral Webster read some ac^^counts, inrluding Items of 827,102 sent^Kgan at Parle and ^12.WIS sent Parneli.^He also quoted from a cable dispatch sent^by Pamell to Mooney, April 26, IhHS in^this dispatch Parneli asks Mooney to pre^^sent his iParnell's) views U^ the conven^^tion and advise the delegates to frsme s^platform that will enable the nationalists^to continue to accept American^assistance, while avoiding offering England^pretext for the. eutlre supnresaion of^the nationalist movement, which, he says,^is the only means for preaervlng the unity^of the Irish movement in Ireland and^America. He expressed himself as per^^fectly confident the Irish cause will con^^tinue to advance by the exercise of pru^^dence, moderation aud firmness. Witness^resuming his testimony said the circular^issued Sept. rt, IHHS, said the executive wss^unable to aee Its wsy to sn armed insur^^rection until Kngland should become In^^volved In a war. In the meantime a secret^war would he carried on. All Informers,^the circular said, were foredoomed While^In Milwaukee .Sullivan said to him that ac^^tive operations were entirely In the hands^of the revolutionary directory, their own^organization, but there had been some lack^of courage shown and the directory had^found it imiKtsaible to get men from the^home organization to do the work. Sulli^^van said In the future every one sJassM^should he without family and besn old and^tried member before departing on an expe^^dition. Kvery uisn would be Inatructedln^the use and msnsgement of explosives. At^the end of 1HS3 there was s split in the or^^ganization, the sccedera retaining the old^name while the others, under Sullivsn's^leadership, founded anew organization en^^titled the ^United States.^ The executive^committee was reduced to three members,^there being a triangle. Wltneas and a ma^jority of the members of the camp joined^tbe ^United States.
Chkaoo,Keb. A.^Alexsnder Sullivan,^ex-president of the Irish National Leatnie^of America, speaking to-day in regard to^state i euts made about hfm by T)r. I .^^^csron before the Parneli commission in^London yesterday, ssld he knew l^ecsron^very slightly. The latter hsd represented^himself to Sullivan as a Frenchman with^most ardent Iriah sympathies. He claimed^to have served in the Union army and^afterwards In the Fenian organization.^Mr. Sullivan believed there w as not a par^^ticle of foundation for LecsrA's stste-^ments about Ps-rnell's expressions of sym-
Ftsthywith any method except open, pub^^ic agitation to aid lrelsnd. The whole^story wss another desperate effort to give^some col r or excuse for continuing the^esse against Parneli.
TheEvening News declares I^ecsron^served In the Union srmy during the wa^snd intimates that both then and during^his connection with the Fenians he acted^as s spy for tbe British government He^hsd sn office in this city on Lsaalle avenue,^but left for Europe about Christmas.

Forseveral days past there has been one^of Furlong's men In the city la search of^a man named John Ramsey, who is wanted^in St. Louis, Missouri, for seversl crimes,^but principally for the robbery of his^father in law from whom he stole $2,7000^about two months sgo. It was only after^tbe detective, Tom McNeil, was convinced^that Uamsey wss not in Montana thst he^agieed to spesk about the msn whom Mc^^Neil terms one of tbe toughest mugs in the^United states.
1srrested the msn In New Orleans ten^^ ears ago for sharing In the proceeds of a^robbery committed by French Tony and^Black Jack Hubbard, who Is now doing^time in Jefferson City, Mo., for pass^^ing counterfeit money. Tony and his^psl robbed an old Frenchman of $6,000,^having been put on by Ramsey, and^he wss given his divy out of the proceeds,^and that 1 recovered. His pals got away.^Ramsey's friends got htm out of the scrape^and he has not been under arrest since, but^he should have been a thousand times. Hs^Is whst 1 call the meanest kind of a thief,^as be pursues s respectable calling, and un^^der thst guise Is sble to bsffle the shrewd^^est detectives. He Is s railroad engineer^snd is seldom out of work, and as he^knows every crook In the country Is able to^give pointers thst benefit them as well as^himself. 1 suppose if 1 were to find the^man and take him back the little affair for
Menhe Is wsnted would be compromised.^But I will tell you the story. Ramsey was
runninga freight on the Wabash between
andduring that time we were sure he^stood in with several robberies on the line^of the Mad but could not collect evidence^against him.
Hela a handsome devil-may-care fellow^and a great favorite with tbe ladles. While^living lu Moberly he became acquainted a^young lady named Bell, of Brunswick, who^wss visiting friends In Moberly. He in^gratia ted himself into her good graces and^ruined her. Bell, the fsther, wss a fiery^tempered old man who gave Ramsey to un^^derstand he would have to marry tbe girl^or die, and he wisely chose the nest wsv^out of the difficulty and married the gin.^The story lesked out and Mr. Bell and his^family removed to St. Louis. The fsmlly^consisted of the mother and two grown^daughters, the oldest of whom died shortly^afterwards at the hands of s notorious^abortionist, snd it is pretty well hnown^that Ramsey wss the sutbor of her ruin.^He lived with his wife In Moberly, but ss^his regular run was to St Louis he was^frequently there, sod the youngest daugh^^ter wss frequently seen iu bis company.
Theoutcome of the matter was that^Miss Bell disappeared from home taking^witti her the old man's cash box. The^theft was reported to our ago.icy. and 1^was nut on the case. It wasn't long be^^fore I learned that Ramsey had received a^two weeks lesve of absence from the road^and Immediately surmised that he and his^slater In-law had run off together. I visi^^ted Moberly and found out from Mrs Ram^^sey thst her huaband had told her he was^going to Pueblo. Colo, on s deal where he^expected to mske a great deal of money.^Knowing the man's character I Jumped to^th,* conclusion thst he had gone to search^out a prolific field for his psls to operate In.^Without taking tbe precaution to satisfy^myself that such was the case 1 went to^Pueblo, and after hanging around for a^day or two learned from what 1 thought to^be a reliable source thst Rsmsey and a^woman answering the descnpitlon of Miss^Bell were stopping st the S ums house. I^weut to the hotel and discovered thst^the couple 1 wanted hsd stopped there^three dsys, registering as John RaudaJl^and wife, but had left the day before for^Cheyenne. 1 telegraphed to headquar^^ters for instructions and was told to follow^them to Australia If necessary. Old man^Bell had his blood up aud would spend^810,000 to get Ramsey and the girl.
1went to Cheyenne, only to find my^birds hsd pursued their (light to the north,^and 1 followed on the next train. When I^reached I tulle 1 could trace them no'far^^ther, but caught the trail again and located^them in Helena. I came over to your city^and yesterday 1 found the ^ouple, but not^the couple I wanted. It wasn't Ramsey^and It wasn't Miss tie)]. 1 wss completely^toob d. sud, of course, wss mad. 1 might^have used the telegreph. It Is true, snd^ssved myself this long trip, but 1 wss un^^der Instructions not to do so. 1 will bsve^to go bsck snd begin over agsln. 1 was^never so completely fooled in my life, and^have felt tike kicking myself ever since.
But1 found out something alter all.^The couple I followed sre s runswsy^couple. The msn is s railroad man, a^hrakeman, snd the woman Is the wife of a^carpenter whom she left in Quincy, 111., to^take care of her baby. She Is now work^^ing in s cbesp restaurant, and her lover Is^hustling sround for s job. Where Ramsey^Is 1 don't know. He may be on his way to^I- u rope for ail 1 know, and it wouldn't sur^^prise me if there Isn't where he has gone,
