Eat tbo Story of Sullivan and tho
Big Fond la Eeaffimed,
Tbe Declaration and Question ol a Promi
nent New York Irishman
Something May Develop Concerning
Camp 00, Clan-na-Gael.
Minister Patrick Egan, who i to Bail to
morrow on the Fera for hit post in Chili, is
rery indignant over the story told by Motli.
mer Scanlan, of Chicago, of his alleged trans,
action with Alexsnder Sullivan in relation
to tbe Land League f unqs.
He is (topping at the Oilsey House and ex
pressed himself in Tory emphatio terms about
those whom, he says, are trying to blacken
tbe character of Mr. Sullivan.
He olaims that tho story that he turned
over 4100,000 of the League funds to Sullivan
while ho was Treasurer of that organization
is absolutely false, and that it was exploded
at the time.
Lvery dollar of the funds of the Land
League, he says, has been accounted for. and
Mr. Parnell himself, who knows just what
disposition was mode of the money raised for
the Irish cause, has taken tho trouble to deny
the story pnblicly.
No such sum. he says, was ever given away.
and those who are now revamping this, re,
port care more about injuring Sullivan than
they do about bringing the murderers of Dr.
Cronlu to justice. U
Upon this point a prominent Irishman in
this city offers an explanation which puts tbe
matter in a somewhat different light.
THAT $100,000.
"I don't think any one." he says," who
has any knowledge whatever of the affairs of
the Clan-na-Gael will deny that about tbe
time when this alleged transaction between
Sullivan, Sheridan and Egan is said to have
taken place on the other side thai Sullivan
came into possession of a very large sum of
money which, it was understood, was to be
used by tho Clan-na-Gael in pushing forward
its physical force work in Iroland.
' ' It has also been pretty well established
that of the sum which he then obtained fcul
livan actually paid over 818,000 to the trees,
ury ot tho Clan-no-Gael, and at the same
time deposited $82,000 to his private account
in a now defunct Chicago bank, which seems
never to have been accounted for.
WHEBE SID HE OET TUE MONST?
' ' Where did he got the money if not from
Egan? It must have been raised somewhere,
and it is well known that both Sullivan and
bheridan went over to seer Egan in Paris ami
were with' him some time before they finally
came back with the money.
" It may not have come from tbe money
contributed ditootly to the funds of the Land
League. I do not think it did, but there
were other tunds which came into Egan's
hands, it is understood, upon which au
organization like tbe Clan-na-Gael, which was
formed for tbe purpose of assassination and
secret murder of supposed enemies of the
Irish cause, bad a special claim.
SAMAOINO TO SULLIVAN.
"The damaging point against Sulltvan is
that he had this money and has not yet ac
counted for it, and that Dr. Cronin had made
some important discoveries in connection
with it, which furnished Bufflcinutly strong
grounds for making a direot charge of em.
Dezzlement against Sullivan and his asso
ciates in the "triangle" which ruled the
Claa-un-Gael in tbe West I can conceive
how such a sum as Sullivan is alleged to have
received might have come to htm througu
Egan, and yet never be traoeable directly to
the general fund of the Land League.
" I think that before the investigation, into
these matters goes much further it willbe
discovered that this is the secret of that (no
torious deal."
CAMP 96'8 PABT IN IT.
Meanwhile the Chicago police arc still
shadowing Sullivan and several other
suspected persons it. that city . and it is stated
upon good authority that Camp 06, of the
Clau.na-Gael, is destined to play a consplcu.
ous part in tbe developments of the immedi
ate future.
Sullivan has gone so far as to retain coun
sel, so as to be prepared for any proceedings
which may bo instituted against him as a re
sult of tho present investigations.
Both he and his counsel, of course, deny
the truth of tho reports of Dr. Cronin's dis
coveries, and claim that thcro is a conspiracy
to ruin Sullivan's character, in which all his
enemies seem to nave combined.
SULMVAN'b VISIT TO ST. LOUIS.
One of the latest stories is that Sullivan
and another Chicago man went down to St.
Louis during tne last Democratic National
Convention, and spent considerable time and
trouble investigating Dr. Cronin's record in
tbat city, with a view to obtaining damaging
evidAiirn mrainfit him. Thev visited a num
ber of persons who had known Dr. Cronin
intimately when be first came to St. Louis,
And some of whom afterward became his
enemies. What they found out has never
been divulged.
BTABKZT irrZABS IN TOBONTO.
Willism Starkey, the Chicago lawyer, who
disappeared about the same time as Dr.
Cronin, and who has been suspected of
knowing a good deal about tbe affair, hui
shown up in Toronto.
According to tho report he is very reti
cent, and although he denies all knowledge
of the reports whioh were sent from Toronto
to the effect that Dr. Cronin had been seen
there after his disappearance, he says he
wants to have as little as possible to say about
his own movements sinco ho left Chicago and
the affairs of the Clau-na-GaeL . . ,
It is said that the big move which is con
templated on the part of the Chicago police
is boned upon information furnUhed yr mem
bars of tbe North Side Camp ot the Clan-na-
Gael, of whioh Dr. Cronin was a member and
by a committee of which organization he was
, tried and sentenced.
OHE OF THE MOST SEBIOUS OnABOES.
Ono of the most serious charges that Dr.
Cronin had made against the leaders of the
Order, next io that .of embezzlement, was
that they had sold out the two dynamiters,
Gallacher and Whitehead, who were sent to
England to blow up publio buildings aud
otherwise disturb tbe peace of the British
Government The leaders claimed that they
had given these men. whoaie now in English
prisons for life. 97.000 to carry on their
operations, but Dr. Cronin and John Deyoy
discovered tbat it was only t5. 000 that they
reoeived, and that it was owing to infonua.

this side tbat tbey were apprehended and

PARTRIDGE'S FATAL BLOW.
CORONER HAUL! HEABB TUB 8T0RI OP
WATCHMAN RAFFERTI'B DEATH,
The Lumber Merchant Repeats III State,
neat of Htrlklng In Self-Defense Or.
Donlla, Who Made the Autopsy, Bays
Ranerty's Sknll Was Unusually Tbln
The Coroner Fouled.
Charles II. Partridge, the lumber mer
chant who is charged with killing Frank Raf
ferty, a laborer, at his lumber-yard on
Wednesday last by striking him on tbe head
with a measuring rule, came beforo Justice
Patterson at Jefferson Market Police Court
this morning, accompanied by his counsel.
In view cjf the death of Bafferty, the case
was sent down to Coroner Hsnly.
Mr. Partridge had left town to go to El.
mira, N. Y. , immediately after he had given
bail in 910,000 lat Wednesday morning.
His wife was sick there, and he intended to
return to New York as soon as possible.
When he reached Elmlra and learned that
Bafferty had died at tho hospital he came baok
immediately, arriving in town last night and,
going at once to the Twentieth street police
station, cave himself up.
At the Coroner's office this morning be was
acoompanied by Lawyer House, his counsel,
and several rlends, who were ready to go on
bis bond should new ball be required.
Mr. Partridge is a tall, well-built man. of
about forty years of ago. Ho wears a heavy
dark mustache and imperial and his com
plexion is tanned a deep bronze. He seemed
to be very anxious and nervous this morning
and was evidently worrying about the case.
In his statement-he claims that Bafferty
made ah attack on'hlm first and threatened
to kill him, and he only struck him with the
measuring rod. which he held in his hand, in
self-defense. He did not imagine that tho
blow was hard enough to do any serious in
jury. Dr. Donlin, tbe Ooronei's physician, who
made an autopsy on Itafferty'R body yester
day with Dr. Ferguson, says the man's skull
was the thinnest he ever saw.
At the templet, where the blow was struck
which caused the fracture, the bone was only
one-thirty second of an inch in thickness,
where in an ordinary persen it is at least one
eighth inch thick.
' ' It was just like an eggshell." said the
dootor. " and it is a wonder that a man of
his reoklbss habits should not have had his
skull smashed in long before. "
It is sold tbat Bafferty was an ex-convict,
baving served a term in State prison for an
atrocious assault upon a woman, and was
known as a desperate character.
Coroner Hardy did not know exactlywhat
to do in the case, and took Lawyer House
over to the District-Attorney's office for legal
advice upon the subject.
They held a protracted session.
Partridge's bail was fixed at $10,000.

Rev. George J. Bchwelnfurth, the so-called
Christ of the Beekmanites. Several days ago
Bchwelnfurth fled from Rockford, 111., which
place the Beekmanites call hoaveu. to escape ar
rest. He came here, but his adherents said that
he would be arrested, and advised him to seek a
more secluded spot, which he did. Tills after
noon Nelren went into tbe haymow of his barn
and there discovered a man wrapped in a trav.
eliing rug and fast asleep. Nelson thought the
sleeper was a tramp. He routed him out. where
upon Bchwelnfurth announced that he was no
other than Christ. The declaration caused Ncl
en to burst Into laughter, at which Hcbwein
furth chlded him and urged hira to embrace
the faith of the Beekmanites and reveronco
their Christ. NeUen would not be persuaded and
then Bchwelnfurth tried to bribe Nelson to shel
ter him and keep the fact secret, ,'lho farmer
declined, and after driving Bchwelnfurth from
the farm gave Information to the authorities as
to the whereabouts of the blasnhomous man.
Boeralof the most influential Beekmanites set
out in advance of the officers and took Bchweln

Chief Insuoctor Byrnos, sharp, decided
and military in his bearing, rode at the front

hands and handled the big fellow ery roughly
for a tow sccouds, and tbe crowd yelled with
'ifiou'fjulllvsn got a grip on tho wrestler and
tried to throw him over his hip.
He did so, but Muldoon landed on his bands
and knees.
1 he two lecked arms and went at it again.
Muldoon grasped Hulllvan about the waist and
threw him to the cat pet, but hu landed on his
side.
Then Sullivan got a good hold on Muldoon,
and, by using all his strength, forced Muliloon's
two shoulders to tbe carpet, and he was awarded
the first fall, '.'he time was two minutes.
Tho second round was more exciting. Ther'
was not much science displayed, but a gre.
deal of strength was exhibited.
The two gladiators alternated in picking one
another up aud trying to throw him on his back.
They rolled ovor each other soreral times in
their efforts, and when Bnlllvan fell upon Mill
doon onco or twice the people thought he had
driven him into the ground, he cauie down so
heavily.
When Bnlllvan was thrown ho wont nowd ou
the carpet like a log. , ...
Af'er several unsuccessful attempts Muldoon
finilly landed Hullivsn on his shoulders In three
minutes, and honors were even.
Tho big Boston gladiator was puffing a great
deal at the end of this bout, and it was evident
that he was slightly winded. He came up
smiling, howover. for tho third and last bout.
After shaking hands Muldoon went at Sullivan
as though he meant business.
He grabbed his head and shook it viciously,
and wbanjolm L. broke loose his face and ears
were vorjr red. -" ' - "
After- Bulllvsn had tripped Muldoon and
throwrftrtnron his side the latter grasped Bnlll
van in his arms, lifted him from his feet and
threw him with grest force upon tho broad of
his backV v
Tho fslBLsdemed heavy enough to shake the
earth. Thlcrowd yelled delightedly as Muldoon
stood over me fallen gladiator with a look of
triumph on IBs countenance.
Hulllvan gathered himself together, and when
noieacneii nisveei ne urew uacx msrigntarm
as if to deliver Muldoon a sledge-hammer blow,
but be didn't.
Thou nearly everybody In the grounds made a
mail rush for the two gladiators. Iu a twinkling
thuy were snrronnded by a mob of 1,000 or
1,500 people. It was with the greatest difficulty
that they retched their dressing-room, tbe no
lice being unable to handle the crowd.
In the evening Hulllvan and Mike Cleary gave
an exhibition of boxing before five or six linn
dred people. They had three rounds, and It
was a very lively set-to. Clesry gave Hulllvan
almost as many hard blows sa he received.
