The Probable Catest Orer the Presl
ttmcj Arrival of the Irish Dele
gates at Hew Terk. 1
Chicaoo, III., August 16. The del
egate to the Irish National League
Convention, whlcn is to be opened
WednesJay morning, ia Central Ma
lic Hall, are arriving very alowly. Not
over half a dozen came yesterday, trot
large Dumber came today, and it ia
expected tnat tbe tall contingent will
pat in an appearance by Wednesdiy.
Tbe convention will be a large one, in
fact tbe largest ever held, it being es
timated that 1500 delegate! will be
present. The first skirmish in tbe
convention will tie over the election of
a temporary chairman, which nill be
tbe first business thst will come be
ioi e that bcdy. President Egan will
eall tbe assembly to order and will
lead his repait. Then will follow tbe
election for temporary officers, and
afterward tbe appointment of commit
tees on credentials, resolutions, per
manent organ zttion, and finance.
Tbe National Committee will hold a
meeting Tuesday evening at the Grand
Pacific Hotel, wuun a temporary chair
man will be decided upon. His name
will be presented to the convention
the nest morning, and it
is expected the opposition will
then show its hand by nom
inating a man from their own
rank. Tbe vote on this will likely
J rove a t'st. It is more probable that
obn F. Finerty will be elec'ed by Ilia
National Committee for this position.
As to tbe election of the president, it
is not so easy tossy wbo will he tbe
man. Mr. Egan positively declines to
aerve another term, and rays be his
no choice for his successor. As far as
can be learned, Mr. Devoy'a followers
have not yet settled on a man for tbe
office. Tbe Eastern delegates are
united on Msurice Will her, of Mana
yank, IV, bat whether bo will accept
or nut cannot be said. Mr. Finerty,
Mr. O'Neill, Rjau of St. Louis, and
Mr, Taomas Brennan of Omaha, are
alsi spoken of. The latter, however,
will not take the offlro, neither will
Alexander Sullivan lc ia also doubt
ful that Mr. Finerty will allow bis
nam to go before the convention, as
bis election would necessarily prevent
nim Iiom taking any active part in
politics. Messrs. Pavitt and Egsn
spent the Sunday quietly. .
. Utter From Devejr.
Tbe Daily New$ today publishes a
communication over a column in
lenitta slgaed by John Devoy, in
which he stys tbe sddrets read at the
Ogleo Grove Irish demonstration yes
terday "jiutlllrts tbe charges that have
bees made spalnst tbe present admin
istration of the league. Dovoystys:
"It also brings lsto bolder relief f-.e
aim, hltherio publicly denied, of the
eet of Nationalist of whom Alexander
Sullivan is a controlling spirit. That
address is a declaration of war npon
Farnoll." The address ia construed
by Devoy as a condemnation of tbe
prartful policy ol the league and de
nial of Psrnell'a authority or that of
the organizition of which he is tbe
cbief,to aeotpt on behalf of Ireland
any scheme cl home rule proposed by
an English ministry.
Devoy concludes as follows: "Etery
mat put forward by tbe Ogden Giovo
men lor an office in tbe convention or
ia the league will represent tbe bogus
nhvslcal fores nollcv. and nvnrv reao-
luiion proposed liy tbem will contain
tbe same person disguised as patriot
ism. Therefore thoy mutt bo crushed
so that tbe national movemont may
live. Their triumph will moan war on
Parnell, begun when convenient, and
and the disgrace and ruin of a move
ment filled with brighter promise than
Ire'and has seen (or a century.
Arrival ofthe Irian Delegate at New
York.
Nkw YobK, AtlKUtl Id. The Irish
delegates to the (Jhlcaco Irish Nntional
League Convention, Messrs. O'Brloo,
Diasy and K.'dmond, arrived from
Europe on the stosmer Sorvia this
morning. The ServU was sighted oil
Sandy llcok at 3 o'clock a m., but
could not cross the Imr on account, of
the low tide until af er 5 o'clock. The
news of the steamer's arrival was re
ceived at tbe harRe otlioe shortly be
fore 6 o'clock. Geo. Ksrwin, M. I).
Gallagher, Uov. Father MrKenna, 1".
J. Brennan auu Michael Dwyer were
the only motubors of the Kecoptinn
Committee on hand, owing ttrthoetrly
hour of the morning. They went on
board of Commodore Sturrins's fast
at?ainer, the Sam Sloan, a 'coinpsnleil
by the reporters. Tho Sam Sloan
steamed rapidly down the harbor to
Quarantine Sta'ion. The Korvia gut
under way shortly sftor 6 o'clock, and
crofeing the bar slowly steamed up to
Quarantine Station. The Sloan put
out from the staioi and drew along
side tbe ho go Conarder. Gsn. Ker
win mounted the steps of rhe compan
ion ladder of the Servia, followed by
the commit oe and the reporters. Tbe
delegates were not on deck. They had
awakened a few minutes earlier, and
ooif emerged from their Btatt-rooras
and came oa deck. A general hand
shaking ensued, nnd tbeu the tliatia
guiehed visitors were taken on board
the Sam Sloan wltb their baggage and
tbe boat headed for this city.
Gen. Kerwin then stepped forward
and introduced in a tew well chosen
words. The R.y. Geo. W. Pepper de
livered a short speech of. welcome. ....
Mr. Vm, O'Brien responded for bis
colleagues. , He said: "GeDtlemen
The Committee, for my friends add
myself, I will say tbnt we are de
lighted t receive such a welcome and
arenoteurprlted at the warm greet
log. It ia nothing moro tban would
be expected from the well known
hospitality of tbe American people.
Never were our pronpecis si bn-rht in
the fight wo are eng-d in. We sk
you to continue your mtpi.crt, for it
Ha fight for life Wo ull continue
the movement no losg as England
refuses to punt homu nde."
Mr. O'Brien said lo was much
phased with h'n reception on Ameri
can boil, and tbaiiid.l the committee
on iho part cf Charles Stewait Par
nell,whoeunwoitby ambassailurethey
were. He referred in flattering terms
to his odetegates, Messrs. Ksdruond
and Deasv.
Mr. John Redmond remarked that
alter lbs eloquent words of bis friend
it was not ceceisaty to lay much. "I
am inclined to believe," continuod
Mr. Redmond, "that an Irish poli
tician's education Las not been com
pleted until he has lived in America.
The words of eLcourageinont from
your people hsvo echoed across tbe
oceau and revived hope at home. The
prospect was never brighter before,
nor was encouragement from this side
ever more needed. The present op
portunity must not be fooled awav.
We are determined to fight the battle
nntil victory rest on our brows."
. After the arrival of the party at the
J xk carriage conveyed them to tbe
Fifth Avenue BoteL Tbey expected
to leave for Chicago at 6 o'clock to
night by the New York Central rail
road.
In conversation with the reporters
Meesrs. O'Brien and Redmond spoke
guardedly. The former condemned
Churchill's attaranoe as the direct
cause of the Orange riots at Belfast
and other places. "He told tbe
Orangemen,'' said Mr. O'Brien, "tut
if they expected to be recognized by
tbe English people they must fight for
it. His policy was backed up by
Chamberlain both in his public
speeches and his letters. Tbe Orange
men took them at tbeir woH arid be
gan rioting. Why, they might have
been pnt down by two dozen police
men when tbe trouble began. But
what conld tbe latter do? Tbey found
themselves perfectly helpless. The
authorities at Belfast were higher
clssses of Orangemen and kept them
back. Any active work by individual
members of the police was rewarded
with black marks and often dismissal.
Any attempt to arrest was followed by
their being confined in the barracks. I
do not think tbe Mayor of Belfast act
ed unfairly, bat other officials used
their best endeavors to stir up the
Orangemen. "
"Do you think there will be a gen
eral strike again. t paying rent?"
asked a reporter.
"I do not," replied Mr. O'Brien,
"yet there is sure to be trouble, ana
that shortly. People last year en
dured their suffering as best they
could, hoping for relief. They ex-
fiecled relief from Gladstone's efforts
a their behalf. That hope ia at an
end now for this year. It la impossi
ble for them now to pay rent. There
ia a strong probability that inside of
three wet-as there will be a spontane
ous combustion. Tbey will refue to
pay the exorbitant rents. It will
eventually result in coercion, and
wholesale evictions will follow. It is
impossible to govern Ireland with co
ercion. Tbe people are driven to tbe
wall now. A year or two will end the
struggle forever. There will be a cer
tain collapse of tbe government on the
lrisn question inside ol a year."
"What do yon fiink of Lord
Churchill's plan of local telf govern
ment by means of county boards?"
asked the reporter.
"Oh, that la not po'sible," replied
tho delegate. "It dots not so far
enough. The question is developing
fast. I should say," continued Mr.
O'Brien, "(bat Gladstone's own mind
is developing rapidly on the qurs ion
involved. Less than tbia measure is
now impossib'e. Mora la certain."
What theI.ondoB"TelrBrnpli"Niiy.
London, August 18. The Daily Tele
graph, referring to tbe rival meetingsat
Chicago, says; ''The Irish at home will
be unable to discern which of tbair
American champions are self seeking
place biinteii and which are genuine,
if mistaken, sympathiser! with their
cauue. Mr. Davltt's attempt to stem
the tide of American-Irish menace is
creditable, but it ia likely to be Iras
popular in Ireland than the outspok

THE CHARGE OF BBCTAL TREAT

Camp in Crittenden Coanty, Arksn
i as, Flatly Denied A Grave
Mistake Oat Some where.
The Appeal pnhllahed on Saturday
an open letter to uov. Hugbee, ol Ar
kansas, charging that the convicts at
a camp in Crittenden county, Ark an
las, were the victims of cruel and bru
tal treatment. Tbe author of the let
ter in qaestion is a well known and re
putable citizen of Memphis, whose
word has never been questioned, and
who evidently wrote the letter in good
faith. In order to give both aides cf
the story we publibu this morning let
ters from two other gentlemen of equal
standing with tbe writer of the first
letter, who flatly deny tbe whole sto
ry, and back up tbeir denial with a
statement ol tacts tnat it win be dim
colt te overcome. The matter cannot
rest at this point. It is a serious mat
ter and should be definitely settled
Tbe lettets are asfolloas:

To th Editors of th Appeal i
It is rather strange some men will
rush headlong into print ignorant of
facts and make public a distortion of
facts, or rather statements, asdii your
"well known citizttn ot Memphis," in
your issue of the An-KAL 'of tbe 14th
Instant, over the signature of "B."
relative to the transfer of a lot of con
victs from Little Itock to Crittenden
coanty, Ark. I wish only to correct
and stat facta, as far as the public is
concerned not a word to the Gov
ernor of Arkansas. Let his Excel
lency, Gov. Uoghes, investigate to the
full satisfaction of all "sentlmeuttl
ists" and the nood honor of the State.
His Excellency knows too well tbat
the high moral standing of the gentle
men lessees of the Arkansas State
prison would revoult, disabuse and
correct any outiagj or rrael'y to the
convicts as quickly as his own or any
other business gentlemen of the Stats.
Your "Well Known Citizen of Mem
phis" allowed himself to be duped or
cajoled by perverted statement, of
which the only fact is the transfer of
the convicts. The gentleman in
charge of the squad, one of tbe les
sees of tbe penitentiary having deliv
ered the same, dined with me on San
day last, while on his way bacx from
the "Camp of the Infernals" to Little
Rock. He ssid be bad had a hard trip.
That upon inquiring the best route to
the camp of Murray and Scott, had
decided that to get off at Edmondson'a
and walk across ten or twelve miles
wi s their route. Mr. NeU on, the con
ductor on tbe Little Bock road, told
me he pnt them off at that place in
fine condition. The convict having
slept all the way there, at 9 a. m. tbey
bad breakfast, after which they start
ed to walk aoroes to tbe camp, with
one wagon, and be hired another on
the way of , an ex-convict, who
expressad much hapuioesa at
meeting him. At 7 o'clock p.m.
they had supper. It being bright
moonlight, he decided t) finish hit
march while it was cool, and did si.
arriving atthe"Campof the Infernals''
during the night. Now, Mr. George
A. Lelper, the gentleman in charge,
in bis summer weight, carries 251
pounds, and tbe guards, wbo carried
breech loading, double barreled shot
guns (mtifkfts are sorry arms), walked
every fiot of the way and ate the same
fare with the convicts. Arriving at
the camp of Murray A Scott, he baited,
where ia the morning he "took in"
the "Camp of the Inferna's." camp of
hired free labor. He decided his con
victs should not remain there. So.
after treating them all to a drink of
whisky, he marched them eight miles
to a high place on the bank of tbe
river, established a camp, drove
a well, besides having a fine
spring of water. Having estab
lished his camp, Mr. Leiper allowed
all, convicts and guards a day of rest,
he standing guaid while they slept.
Here we eeo the gentleman lessee ac
knowledged a hard trip. It proving
lr stead ol tun or twelve miles from
Edmondson, to him who walked it,
seemed forty. Instead of allowing bis
convicts to remain at the"Camp of the
Infernals" (a camp of free labor) and
suffering such "damnable a allure" he
ettablished ono at which any Mem
phis gentleman UbIii rmen would like
to emmd a week. Being ignorant of
"B.'s" effusion to tbe Governor, ol
course it was not a lude.d to. I should
like to know; ths world would like to
know of the kindhouled gentlemen
how a lot of s xty-tlve disperate and
hardened men, convicted of every
crime In the calendar and sen'enced
to bard labor, could be removed such
a distance without guards or shackles.
Of the bloodhounds I know nothing
but think it a w si provision to have
them. Perbars your senti
mental correspondent would at
have them allocked with tie vines and
lecked with a ouMonnaire by some fair
hand, and guarded by what Gcd
on y knows unless by such arms a
would convey a fear of death on a
break. j. s cabbuthkiu.

To theKdltora of tbe Appeal:
A writer in referring lo convicts
being chained like dogs at Haivey A
Hcott's camp make somary erroneous
statements that I hardly know bow to
commence a correctiou.
First Tliee convicts were not hired
to work on the Bay Frrry road.
Second Harvey & Scott have no
contract for building th Bay Ferry
read.
Third There is no dirt road being
bollt through the swamp that any
body knows of.
Hatvev & Scott are railroad con
tractors 03 th Bald Knob road. They
employed sixty-oi.e, not sixty-eight
cinvicts from the Aikaneas peniten
tiary. There were twenty white men
in the lot instead of fourteen.
The march was not hard, tor it was
some twei tyodd miles in one day
and part ot the ninbt. A boat 10 o'clock
Wedneeday m rning these men had
breakfast. They also had dinner and
supper. They alsi had a drink around
and f.iod wben tbey got to camp.
Pat Gleaaon is a long term convict
with a good character for work and
behavior, and I think has never been
punished since he came to the peni
tentiary. Harvey & Scott have nothing to do
with working these convicts. Tbe
lessees feed, clotho, gaard, panieh and
everything ehe,
I wou'd suggest that your corres
pondent get a few facts before he
makes another effort. justice.
