The scenes presented In Music Hall
shortly afisr 3 o'c'ock this afternoon,
was in many resprclH extraordinary.
The beautiful audit r:um wai crowded

There was a tremendous outhuriit of

; themselves hoarse when Mr. Davltt,
loaning on tho arm of 1'atrick Kgan,
and fo loweJ by the remaining Irish
delegates and other ofllcora of the
National League entired the hall. The
visitors and olliceis mads their way
to the stage amid the shouts and
plaudits oi tho crowd, and tho first
move was' spontaneously toward Mrs.
Parnell. Davltt and the olhtri warm

l'KESIDKKT KQAN'S AMlBESg.
Once more the elected dologates of
" the Irish National League of America
have came toge'hor in national con
vention to comply with the conditions
of the constitution, and to adopt such
measures aa may seem beet for the
furtherance of the great and holy
cause in which we are engaged. We
shall, I am glad to say, bo inspired by
the presence, and aided by the counsel
ot me man woo, oi an ntners-not
, even excepting our great loader him-
eelf holds the warmest place in the
hearts of-the Irish exiles, tbe man
whom Charles Stewart Parnell has
called the father of the Land League
: bonnet, fearlees Michael Davitt. We
shall also have the inspiring presence
and aid ol the patriotic, brave and
uiiuiui uniDgauon irom ireiana my
friend, William O'Brien, who baa ban
ished more snakes and rtpliles from
Ireland than any man since the days
of St. Patrick, John Redmond and
John Deasy. In vonr name, In the
name of the Irish National League of
America, I welcome these gentlemen
to our convention, with a hearty Irish
American cead mills failthe.
. ; It is my privilege and nrido to be
abl to congratulate you, the faithful
members of the league, upon the
glorious ptogress our cause has made,
and upon the splendid work you havo
helped to accomplish for Irish na
t onality sloes we last met in Fanult
' Halt. Then the infamous crimps art
' was io force In Ireland. Everyman's
liberty ana lift, were at the mercy of
the hirer! and trhioed perjurers ol
jJaiilm castle. Out of iUJ members
of Parliament returned from Ireland,
lees than thirty could be relied npon
to fllow Mr. Parnell, whilo bo'.h
English parties were solidly combined
againtt home rule for Ireland. To
even the most sanguine among us tbe
o realization of our hopes for the restora
tion of our sa iucal Parliament seemed
Indeed a loag way off.
Such, however, are the strides our
cause has made tince then, that but a
couple of months ago victory seemed
. within oar very grap. Mr. Parnell
ca:i now count, Instead of a lol'owing
" ol twenty-five or thirty, a formidable
f, pa-ty- of i lghty live. Coercion, a a
system, in, I bolieve, dead. Not even
iLe bliisfeung end bluudsrlng Tories
will dare to resort to it Three suc
ceed ve governments have been over
thrown within nine months on tbe
Irish question. From Dublin to
Eastern Ixulia on the one aids and
Oalifntoia on the other, from Norway
tov New Zealand, in the centers of
diplomacy in Europe Berlin, Vienna,
Paris,, in St. Petersburg aa well as In
London the struggle for Irish liberty
is keenly watched, and English states
men bave come to learn that the
measure of England's influence smong
the nations will be in proportion to
the peace that reigns in Ireland, and
that there can he no peace with Ire
land or with tbe Irish race uotil Ire
land obtains home rale. The greatest
of English statesmen bai made
home rnle a Cabinet quection,
and while Mr. Gladstone has for tbe
moment gone down before the force of
English prejudice and English igno
rance, tbe banner of home rale for
Ireland will, in bis own words, "be
boms with the firm hands of tbe
nnited people, perhaps not to an easy
but to a certain and not for off vic
tory." I think om friends from the
old laud will tell you that in the
achievement of this great progress tbe
aid, material scd moral, rendered to
tbe cause by yon of ths Irish National
League of America has boen an im
port nt factor. Since the Boston Con
intion the national treasurer, Father
(VfeMHy, has fttwaried to the Na
tional League at home and to the trus
tees of tbe Parliamentary fund the
mm of over $X'0,000. Of that, 176,000
reached the hands of Mr. Parnell on
tbe eve of the election of last fall,
and wo had the great gratiQ a ion of
receiving Mr. Parneli's aseurancs
that it enabled him to win
victories he mild not otherwise
bavesecured. One hundred thousand
dollars were temitted by cable within
ten dajs during the campaign of la t
mouth, and UO,000 but a few days
days ago. Your executive appreciating
the great value of public opinion,
adopted various methods to en
lighten the American public on tbe
Irish causo, and tbe warm and vigor
ous outbursts of purely American In
dorsement, which from one end to tho
other of this greit country, greetod the
introduction by Mr. Gladstone of h'S
home rule and land bill indorsement
so highly Bpprai8"il by Mr. (jladctono
himself attests tho sucews of our
efforts. It Is net too much to claim
for this leaxuo of ours that not only
has it done its part in aiding and sup-
f lotting the titruggle at home, hut that
t has made the causo of Ireland re
spectab'e and respected among Amer
icans, and through that means has
helped largely to elevate our people as
a raoe on this continent.
Our action at this convention will
be watched from aorcss the Atlantic
with the very closest Interest: from
Ireland with hops snd pride and joy;
from England or a large section of its
people with prejudice tbe most blind,
with hatred the most intense, and with
the bitter hope that our deliberations
ma vend in difseoi-lons and disaster.
Differences there may exist Amongst
ua, as they exist among toll other or
ganisations, bat these differences, if
they do crop out, must and shall be
settled by the vote of this convention.
Ireland's causs is too sacred a trust to
be mads tbe shuttlecock ol politicians,
tbe sport ol any man's vanity, or a
weapon for the gratification of any
man's personal malice. Ireland la
passing through a terrible crisis. Our
people look to ns for atd snd comfort
and enoouragomeot In their desperate
straggle. Tnsir hopes aro in a great
measure cento ted on the outcome of
this convention. Victory seems close
at hand, and I ficl that there is
enough common sense, enough man
hood, enough dignity in this conven
tion to see to it that it be not dashed
away, that Ireland's hopes be not
Unity, caution, perseverance and
determination tie the necursity of tbe
hour unity between all honest, manly
elements of Irish nationalism on this
continent under the banner of the
IrUh Natioual League of America and
unity of purposo and of action be
tween the league in America and the
league at homo ; caution, that no word
or act of on s will compromiao our
friends beyond the water, but st tho
same time caution that must never de
genurato into cowardice; persoveraoce
cool, steady peiseverance on tbe
lines and uudur ths leadorabip of
Charles Stewart Parnell, and deter
mination, such determination as that
shown by tho In here of American
libeity to win back our plundered
rights at nil hazards. I see emblsz mod
on these walls the motto, "We are for
Irish Liberty. Peacefully if We Can,
Otherwise if We Must." This is the
true national pesition. Ths s the
position which every true born Amer
ican can appreciate, the only position
which England can respect, and I
maintain it is the position and the
spirit which has placed the causo of
Irish nationality whera it stands t
now ths si'ikcu was nsciivsD.
Before President Egan had spoken
half a doson (eotoncts ths lobbies and
oven the aisles wore crowd d . with
delegates and spectators. The ap
plause during Mr. Egan's addrees was
so frequent that it seemed to break
forth almost st ths end of every sen
tence. Mentions of Gladstone wers
enthusiastically received, but when,
near the close of Mr. Egan's address,
came the phrae: "Peaceably if we
can, otherwise if we must," the. very
fallerles and roof seemed to shake,
hree cheers for Washington, Glad
stone, and Paruoll were given at the
close of Mr. Egan's address. "

Thsn Secretary Sutton read tbe rail
for the convention. He also read a
letter from the Rev. Eaton Conaty,
of Worcester, Mass., who was nnable
to be present on account of pressing
engagements. Father Conaty urged
strongly that no dissensions be allowed
ts enter the convention. '
A rehjgram fro u tho Democratic
State Convention of Michigan, now in
seselon, wishing the league and Par
nell God speed, called for approval
from the audience.
Prrsident Egan arose at this point
and announced that at a meeting ot
the National Committee last night,
Judge James 1L Fitz:erald, of Cincin
nati, had been f elected for temporary
chairman of the convention and John
P. Su'toa for teuipoia-y secretary.
Fitzgerald's name seemed to act
magnetically upon the delegates. It
scarcely needed the thnndsringchoeis
of "yeas" when Mr. Egan put the
quction f or his election. "Contrary
no," laid the president.
One or two deleuatoa made a motion
of diMsent, but failed to voice it. snd
Fitsgeiald and Sutton were declared
Judge Fi'zgerald npon taking tbe
chair, spoke as follows:

Ladies and Brother Dslkoates
Tbe dispatches in the morning papers
indicate great hopes on the part of
Salisbury and a vagabond set of Or
angvmen, who, ashamed of their own
country and their rate, indulge in the
high hope that this convention of
Irieh hearts and Irishmen will eom
mit political suicide and direr ce
themselves. Crios ol "No 1 no l"J On )

4000 mi es heroes the sea of trembling
fear and anxiety from thoee that live
In old Ireland cheers; fear and anx
iety from those we left in our child-hood-fisar
and anxiety from those in
whese name and in whose Interests we
are summoned here today; fear ard
anxiety from those whose status iu
life we desire to make like our own,
freemen, as free as the ocean's wild
waves. Cheers. Ia proportioi as
you smash thoae hopes on the one
hand and dispel the foars on the other
hand, in that same proportion shall
ws have fulfilled oar destiny. Yoa have
telegraph instruments here in 'your
hall. From tbem let the electric flash
pa'B across from here to the Atlantic
and across it with tbe velocity that it
is proverbial for, and let every word
that goes from this ba'l be words of
disappointment to the enemies of Ire
land. Cheers. On tbe other band,
let the words be words of cheer and
consolation to tbe people that for
seven centuries bave waited for free
dom. How many cf you are away
from vonr happy bomes. You same
not with any selfish motives invisw;

stones at home, Ycu come here not
paid by blanches or inspired by tbe
love of rivalry. Yon came hero as
honett, patriotic men, loving the land
that gave you birth and hating her op
pressors. Cheers. You came here
like ' free men, the greatest, the
freest country on earth. Cheeis
You came here to attend with
the ttuest motives tbat could per
meate an assemblage of pure bluest
and determined men. You came
bera as the representatives of the
Irish National Lesgue of America that
was organized not to dic ate, not to
suggest a line of policy to those 4000
mtles across the Atlantic, for whoso
bnppioe's, for wbose interest we are
gathered here today. Cheers. You
came here not to dictate to them, but
rather follow in their eteps. Cheers.
You came here today with hearts full
of hope for the future. We cannot
forgot ths past if we would, and we
would not it we could, Ctieers. But
whilo that is the fact we look to the
future with tbe hope that the Irish
race throughout the world is concen
trated ou Charles Stewart Parnell.
tCheeis You came here to welcome

your actions, the honored representa
tives of the Irish Parliamentary party
and Charles Stewart Parnell. Parnell
has sent vou good news and glad

You start up and with yonr

His recognized representatives come
here st his request. I entreat all of
yon, therefore, to pay the closest at
tention to what they may say, and let
your platform and yonr resolutions be
made no af er they have spoken.
Cheers I regret, and no doubt you,
too, regret it, that for the last day or
two veu may have been in the city,
you have read in the rmbllo press sug
gestions cf a terrible fight and disaster
to this convention. (Grits of "no,
no.") Nothing on eatth would give
greater aid and comfort to tbe enemies
ot our race, and to the enemies ot
free government than should such a
propnecy be confirmed. It has been
mooted along in some dark cor
ners, that a resolution will be
presented here today dictating a
policy to those directly interested in
tbe objects of this convention. There
may be a madhouse not far from here.
Ctieers and laughter. There may be
an ercaped lunatic from the mad
honeo. But, lunatic or not, no matter
who he may be, that if such a man
would dare to show bis brazen head in
this convention, and should for one
moment direct Parnell and the Irish
parliamentary party, rhould dictate or
suggest to them s policy, I 'anticipate
that your sergaam-at-arms could not
prevent this mu'titudo ot good and
true mon iiom rising in their mwht
and eject the crazy follow. Cheers.

said: "Tho o!d enemies cf our racs

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.
About twenty years ago 1 dlacorerod a little sore on my cheek, and the doctors pro
nounced It cancer. I have tried a number ot physicians, but without receiving any perma

wu like fire to the sore, caaiing intense pain. I aaw a eratemont in the papcra telling what
8. S. S. bad done for otliera similarly afflicted. I procured some at once. Before I boa used
the second bottle the neighbors could notice tbat my cancer was healing np. My general
health bad been bad for two or three years 1 haa a hacking cougn ana spit blood contin
