The commencement exorcises of tho
public schools ut tbo Memphis Theater
last night were n source of unqualified
satisfaction and delight to all who wore
present, and thoso who wero present
fairly represented tho flower of Memphis
society. Tho ball was packed from pit to
dome, and tho aisles were crowded three
deep and tho walls wero lined in tho same
proportion. It was a raro and inspiring
sight to boo so much solid worth on tho
outside of tho curtain ami so much genu
ine morit on tho Inside, When tho curtain
rose and displayed to viow Ihruo rows of
white robed mnidens, instinct with tho
flush of youth and beauty, tho audience
could not resist an enthusiastic outburst
of applause, and as each fair graduate
came to tho front and contributed her
sharo to the success of tho evening's pro
gram the public Interest and sympathy
grew with every throb of thuir hearts
and culminated in a thrill of iuiur:auira
bio applauso at tho muguifk-out wrk of
Mint Funnio Huttcmlorf and Miss Carol

but pMirttiiiity to assert itself. It
may lie donmint for years and then flash
out like a spark (mm an electric battery.
Mim llatlcmlorf is a born genius. Mio
had hardly spoken ten lines before she
held her sudivueo spell-bound. They
fairly hung to her lips as she r tilted the
tlirillintf incidents of a boat race. They
forgot all about the girl and Iho theater
and tho public schools, but under tbo
manic touch of that raro narrator they saw
tho blue water, tho contending crews,
tho strained muscles, tho feats cf endu

cheers of victory, and when it was ull
over and tho black-eyed girl who told it

Losnox, May 30. At a meeting of tlio
Piiruell Commisaion today tho Iirst w itness
was Mr, Arthur O'Connor, member of
Parliament. Ho teslilled that whilo bo
was in Indianapolis last year Gen. Har
rison, now 1 renidunt ol the l'niled States,
said that every honest man and lover of
lilicrtv would rather share the company of
Mr. Win. O'Hrien in Tulliimnre Jail than
that of Iho Viceroy iu Dublin Castle. Mr.
O'Connor said that when be took ollicii in
tho league lie found many of the books
fragmentary and in arrears. It was Ini
posi.iblo to do anything with them. Ho
tlid not know whether the books which
tho Government seired during tho udinin-
istrulioti of Chief Secretary Foster have
Presiding Justice Hanncn ordered that
inquiiies bo made uhout these books.
Mr. O'Connor repelled as calumny the
suggestion, that tho tenants had under
stood bin sdvit-o to them lo boycott land
grubbers as a hint to murder or use vio
lence iiku them. He admitted saving
thut it was not unnatural that a man who
saw his family Hung into the roadside
should shoot Iho eviclor.
Mr. Justin McCarthy, meiulier of Psr
Humour, wss the next ' w itnesa. I le leti

Lieut. Schneider nnd bis men went
through tho Iceman's bouse today, but tlid
Uot discover anything which could lie used

or two places and searched every room

The Dtiily Aries this evening prints the
following: An old dc'ectlvo at tho City
Hall, who lias buen keeping tab on the
rasa closely, was rovlewing the rvnleiicn
today. I lo s-ld: " J bo Ihrso men now In
jail know all about the murder, couM gut-
tho polico the right clews which would re
suit in the arrest of tho actual perpetra
tors of tho crime. Hut these prisoners
could never be convicted of murder on tlio
cvidcuco tho State's Attorney now litis iu
his possession. Ono of them must squeal,
and it will not be Cougliliu. It lies be
tween Sullivan snd Woodruff. Tbo Slate's
Attorney would prefer to net tho iceman's
story, and 1 think he would promise to
lei Sullivan off easy if ho would give the
whole plot itwuy." If ho tlitl give up
everything, I think it would he something
like this: Cnuuhliu mndu all tho arrange
ments in tho Iirst place for tlio murder.
IIo made out tlio plans. Of course, ho
knew bis men before he approached them.
To Sullivan ho intrusted the work of fix
ing up n contract with Dr. Cronin. The
hiring of ull horses and rigs Coiighliu at
tended to himself. Hu hint liict Wood
Ill 11', whom be knew lo bo a crook,
nnd itUays ready for uny shady
transaction. He tlitl not conlldo
anything to him, however, merely
telling him be wanted some work done at
an early hour Iu the looming. Then bo
made Iho dicker with Diuitu about the
rig, which ins friend was to cull lor the
ninht of May 4. Tho Williams brothers
did all their own work, tho hiring of tho
Curl-on cottage and tho buying of Iho
furniture. 1 think that ulthotigli there
were t'teul" Kivoiui ill thu couspitiicy,
but two or. three, tteai.'.es the actual mur
derers, knew that Cronin'a life was lo bo
taken. Will the murderers ever be brought
to justice? Tho chances aro live lo one
against tiie police. With tho evidence
thus tar obtained there cnu be no convic
tions. It is not at all likely that the men
who committed tho crime'llself -tint the
actual deed aro In Chicago or oven in the
country. They had amnio warning nnd
got out of tho country niter too report i(
tho finding of thu body. 1 bnvoauother
theory which, however, is not ns tenable
ns my Iirst ono. ll may bnvo been that
there was no Clati iia-Gael conspiracy nt
nil, and that unolher uiolivo altogether
prompted Iho murderers. It is posnhlo
that Sullivan got s une woman into trouble.
That woman may have been n rela
tive of Coitejiliu, Dr. Cronin be
cauio ncquaiiiicd with the facts in
the cne, which went erv damaging
to the itrinitu. 'iho taller, knowing the
strict moral and religious principles ol Iho
lbs tor, uud urged on by a (ear that Iho
physician would Inform the iiitlhoiitics
that Sullivan wus guilty of n grave crime,
nude Iho contract with tlio ths tor which
lured him to his death. I can imt but
think that WoodrufFs story iilsmt women
has some foundation iu fuel. 'lheMilu e
tuuhl in ly, It seems, to lmk up Suili
