Fitzgerald Doubts If Cronin's Body
Has Yet Boon Found.
Davitt Confident That Investigation of
tbe Murder Will Not Hurt the
Irish Cause Mr. Sulll
van's Feare Allayed.
Chicago, III., Juno 10. A special from
Lincoln, Nub., to the Tribune nays: John
Fitzgerald, president of tlio Irish National
Lcaguo of A morion, was asked last evening
Motive his opinion regarding the Cronin
murder. Mr. Fitzgerald replied: "It has
not been absolutely proved that Cronin is
1 Vtlead at all. Many persons are not salis
, fled with tlio Identification as sworn to at
the coroner's inquest. Thero was nbtind
ant room for doubt Hut admitting the
murder, It seems evident, even from tlio
wild evidenco given at tbo inquest and
furniHhed by the newspapers, that tlio
Clan-ua Gael Association, as a body, had
nothing to do with bis death or disappear
nnco. Tho charge against Alexander
Sullivan of complicity la tho mur
der has not tingle fact to sustain it
The verdict of tho coroner's Jury
implicating Alexander Sullivan, as
Judge Tuley properly remarked, was
based on outside sentiment and not on
evidence. I havo not tho slightest doubt
cf Mr. Sullivan's coinplcto exoneration of
tbo foul chargo mado against him. For
every bomioide thero must besomo osten
sible cause assigned. CroniiPtva not mur
dered for money. The crime cannot be
riu-oiuibly attributed to tlio alleged halo
of Cronin Haiti to bo entertained by Mr.
Sullivan. It Isnot rrobablo that tho mur
der was committed by ftiends of Sullivan,
and uuless somo good and sullicielit
reason can bo adduced that will
la somo dogreo explain why any
Irishman should imbruo bis hands
in tlio blood of Dr. Cronin, the
theory that ho was niurdcrod by men in
tho pay of Hie English secret scrvico is as
plausible as any. 1 Io wss known as a
member of a secret association with which
the Ixmdon TVinyi tried to connect 1'arnell
and tho Iribb Parliamentary party. I Io
was known as a bitter inemlicr of a (notion
in that association, while among his fellow
citizens bis rcput.ttiou had never been
questioned. Therefore, his niurdcrurs'
disappearance could but create a great
'Vublic oulrry, resulting In demand for
the investigation and exposure of Irinh
secret societies, and which it was expected
would damage tho whole Iiish tiioxcmcnt
in tho eyes of the American penplo. hm-li
bas latin pirtlv tho result of the
murderers disappearance, and it is
not to think thut the crime was planned
and executed bv F.ngludi agents to secure
the cuds forwbieli tho llritii.li Oovcm
nient has its agents and emissaries in
every city in tho t inted Mates. Attempts
are being inndo by the aamo agent or by
tlieir paid duiu to oroide a uisturlmnco in
every IriHh iirg.miMlion, to destroy tho
Irish National league of America, snd
drivo the iri-li rare in America back into
a statu of disorganized chaos. This liril

Chicago, 111., June 10. Ss?cial cable

Mrs. Margaret Sullivan, wife of Alexander
Sullivan, Is not coming to America, as re

as saying sho has been cabled not to como

have tho highest opinion of tho personal

"1K you believe that Sullivan or his as

detestable deed as tho assassination. I Ikv

To P. W. Dunne:
Dear Sir The inombers of tho Irish Na

citizens of tho United States, ami hold
murder inasmuch abhorrence assny other
element of the community can possibly

test their honesty, and tho leaguo has no

your city has been tho theater. Thero is,
therefore, np necessity (of protestsor apol
ogies of any kind from the Irish National

murder of Dr. Cronin. A foul crime baa
been committed. The laws of the country

The Heavy Rain and Ibelr Effect
Condition of Orowlng Crop.
Wahiinotox, Juno M. Tbo week end
ing Juno 13 ho been warmer than usual
In tho State on the Atlantic Coast and
cooler in the central valley from the
(inlf Coast northward to tho tako region
in Minnesota, tho greatest departures from
tho normal temperature being in the
Central Miwiissippi Valley, where tho
daily temHraturo was from 0s to V lower
than usual In the I'ppcr Missouri Val
ley, including Nebraska, Dakota anil Min
nesota, tho normal tcnieraturo for tho
week prevailed. On tho I'aciflc Coast it
wo decidedly warmer than urual, espe
cially in the grain regions, whore tho daily
excess rsnged from H" to W. Tho ther
mal conditions for the season, from Janu
ary 1 to Juno l', bavedifiercd but slightly
from tho averago of the provloui years;
throughout tho Southern Slate of tho
Ohio and Mississippi Valley and Dakota
it I frum one to two works early.
Thero bo Wn more ruin than usual
generally throughout all agricultural dis
trict in the central valleys and on tho At
lantic Coast, except in Southwest New
Knulnnd and along the South Atlantic
Coant, whero numerous showers aro re
irU.'d. itains were uiiusually heavy over
the central and western portions of tho
cotton region and tho tobacco region of
Trnnesve, Kentucky, North Carolina,
Virginia and Southern Indiana, tho heavi
est rain occurring in tho taw or MiMisaippI
Valley, where they wore greatly needed.
Although le rain than usual occurred In
Kansim, Nebraska, Minnesota stid Dakota,
well distributed shower are reported from
these Slates, which, with previous rains,
w ill doubtless prove favorable for corn.
Tho large dellcienry of ruin la 1 1 for tho
season previously reported over tho to
bacco region and Teunosseo ho been
greatly reJuced by the recent heavy rain,
where' the rainfall fur the season now ex
cvd 70 per cent of the normal. Gen
erally throughout the Middlo Atlantic
States, KsKtern Nor 111 Carolina, and Irom
Iowa and Nchrake southward to tho West
(iulf Coast, there ha been more rain than
At stations along the Ohio Hivcr ami In
Northwestern Minnesota the rainfall for
the season has been Icm tbsn U ier cent
of the normal; but It I probablo that tho
timely lain in these sections have Im
proved the crop condition.
Tho weather for the week wss nnfnvor-
able fur small grain in Minnesota and
Dakota, owing to the small amount of
rnirt. In Iowa, Illinois, Missoftri, K a nans
an I Arks'ia.1 the crop condition were
improvod by tho weather of tho present
wack. Corn uj repoted as growing
rapidly, but In somo sections of Illinois
too much rain is retried. Wheat liar
vet is lu progress In (Antral Ksnsa and
w ill commenie in Illiuoia next week. A
short crop ol timothy and clover la now
being muwn in Dakota.
In Michigan and Indiana all crop bare
luiprDvad, but excetaivo rain Interrupted
cultivation and harvest work. Crop
were generally rviaruod in fecututky and
Teunesseo, owinjr to heavy dally rains and
little HUiHiiaii'. in somo srelious of tlieo
Mates wht h is b.'en daiuagl bv insects
and injured by oxcoi-sive rain, although
cotton and tobueeo is repotted us growing
well, but dry weather is needed for culti
vation. lteports from North Carolina, South
Carolina, Alabama and Louisiana indicate
that the woathor was favorable to all
crops, which show decided improvement
since the rocont rains. In Mississippi and
Texas the rainfall was excessive, and crops
have been more or loss injured in somo
sections, especially iu Texas, whero the
weather ban been too cool for cotton.
Tho excexsive rams, which have oc
curred over tho greater portion of tho Mid
dlo Suites and New England, havo been
attended by weather conditions which
havo generally improved crops, although
farm work aud cultivation was inter
rupted. In Now England all crops, including
corn, improved and are growing rapidly.
In Connecticut tho weather has been es
pecially favurblo for the tobacco crop,
which is reported in line conditiou.
Sr. Pajx, Minn., June It). A Pioncvr
Prrn special from Winuipcg, Man., says:
Tho first crop bulletin of tho Manitoba
Department of Agriculture for this season
was Issued today. Keports on tho condi
tion of crops for Juno are given. Speaking
of the wheat outlook, the bullotin says:
Tho crop was put in the ground this year
earlier throughout than in any other
year in the history of tho 1'roviuce,
Tho seeding senou was a most fa
vorable one. Tho early part of
tho spring was rather favorable for growth,
but toward the middle of .May tho weather
bccaiuo too cool, and growth was bai k-
trir.1 litm aj.iim finii. aff.i A ftn n Ifmlr nf
iilliciency of warm rain made tlio growth
slow, and on June 1 in many part it was
Dot so lar advanced as was cxi-ected lor ae
curly a season. Notwithstanding the
backwardness of tho season, however, tho
opinion was generally expressed vhat tho
crop would be a largo one. Tho area that
has been put under crop is much larger
than that of any previous year, so vend
counties showing largely increased areas.
Tho total area shown to be under crop is
tl,.,:i,2t acres, U'ing an increase over that
ol 1SM7 of 111,111 acre.

From the ft. LotiU t.li.tx.' IVuui.r.tt,
The sensation of the present mooting has
Ihh'ii the running of tho blind mare Irene,
whoso threo aueeetMive w ins have been a
toiirco of iiuivernal comment. To breedcrj
her perfornutnee were inexplicable, as her
dam wo given as unknown and connois
seur were loth to believe that it hutf-brccd
could run as gamely and consistently as
she has done. Sho has been purchased by
Scroggan Itros., who will breed her after
shebreaksdown, they being willing to risk
breeding to a uiaro with a dash of cold
blood. From later developments U would
seem, however, that tliny.havo secured
n race horse through whoso veins courses
the choicest blood of laigliind and this
country. Irene was bred at Wilev Huok
le's farm, near Shswneetow n, III'. Her
sire is Longtime He w is bred by the lute
A. K. Kichards, of Georgetown, Ky., and
was by Melbourne, Jr., out of a niaro
by War Dance. Ho was a superior raco
horse, and in his three-year-old form do
feutcd Volturno and Oil Time in a stako
race at Iaxinglon. Ho wit thou sold to
Miltou Young, tho proprietor of tho
Mi'tiiathiiina Stock Farm, and limillv
drifted to Illinois. It Im been found
that on tho dum's side tl.o breed
ing of Irene is not us obscure as
supposed. It 1 thought that her dam
was from a quarter mare to the
cover of imported Kupture, and if this is
the cam) she contains a choice strain of
blood on her dsm's side. Imported Hip
turo was by Diophantiis, ho by Orlando.
Dimdiantu was suopnacd to be the speed
iest horse in Fnglund when he won the
2,(HXJ guineas for ltrd Stun ford ami War
rington in I sol. I Io started lirsl luvorile
for tho Deiby in that year, but was beaten
by Kettledrum and Dundee. The Orlan
do blood has been ncgli-ctcd in tills coun
try, but breeders have at last awakened to
its value, and imported Knpturo is now
standing in Kentucky.
Irene bus been running at fairs In Illi
nois and Kentucky and was known to
scss phenomenal speed, but her ability to
stay over n distant o of ground was
doubted. It is really wonderful how
choice strain of blood are sometimes neg
lected. A print teal example has been
