AX ALLYOFPOEITICAL MURDERERS
A Cold Stab at Eossa and His Claims as
I THE SECRET MEETING IX HTTSBUEG
The. evidence Riven by Informer Beach
before the Parnell Commission yesterday
was of a sensational character. He re
vealed his connection with the various
secret organizations in the United States
"which were working for Ireland's freedom.
He spoke of the work of the Boston Con
vention, and of a secret meeting held in
Pittsburg. The Attorney General sought
to prove by the witness that while Parnell
and his colleagues may have had no connec
tion with the Peniaa outrages, yet they
chose the perpetrators, knowing their
character, as allies.
Loxdox, February 7. Upon the re
sumption of the sitting of the Parnell Com
mission to-day the witness Beach made a
correction in the testimony he gave yester
dav. He said it was Bovton whom he saw
at the Philadelphia Convention in 18b3, and
not SheridaiJ as he testified yesterday. The
latter only arrived in America in 18SL
Attorney General "Webster read a portion
of the Constitution of the "U. S."
Beach explained the symbols standing for
secretary and treasurer, the secretary a
being a double square, with one right-angle
placed over the other, while the treasurer's
was a cross. In March, 1884, witness at
tended a district convention oi the "U. S.,"
where he saw Sullivan and Lomasey.
Attorney General AVebster asked the wit
ness'what services Lomassey had rendered
that the brotherhood should support his
"Witness explained that a convention of
the reunited sections, now known as the
'TJ. B.," was held in June, 18S8, when a
delegate from Detroit, where the widow of
Lomassey lived, introduced the subject
OBJECTED TO THE EVIDENCE.
Sir Charles Russell asked the Court
whether this was evidence against the Par
nellites. Attorney General "Webster held that these
organizations were really all one, and that
the evidence was admissible because Egan,
Sheridan and others were dbectly connected
with the LE.B. ana the I. IT. B.
Sir Henry James also contended that the
witness' alleged conversation with Parnell
made his evidence admissible. Parnell had
requested the witness to do certain things
when lie am red in America, and it had been
proved that the request was carried out.
Therefore tbc first step was to demonstrate the
nature of the society with vi hich it was alleged
Parnell desired an alliance. What was about
to be proved was the acts of the association
with which Parnell desired to come into line.
Having butParnell'snew before the court, and
supposing they showed that money was pro
cured for dynamite, and proved that dynamite
received sympathy froniv this body bv being
recompensed, that would'be one act which, if
brought home to the knowledge of individuals,
would permit of no question belngraised. They
would prove these acts., and the notorious
character of the body with which an alliance
was sought was shown by its acts, and the one
they desired to prove at present was lelevant
UNTIL THE END OF TIME.
Sir Charles Russell said that the Attorney
General's theory made Parnell and his asso
ciates affected by the actions of the U. B. or the
B. C. to the end of time.
Mr. Reid said that the Attorney General,
before proving proceedings in America
against the . Parncllites, should produce
more definite evidence of the arrangement
and conduct of the conspiracy, and in a spirit
other than that in which the evidence had so
Jar been tendered. It was not sufficient to
show conversations, innocent in themselves,
without proving guilty knowledge of such ob
ject as was coniempiaiea.
Attorney General Webster said he bad never
been prepared to suggest that Jlr. Parnell or
other members of Parliament were personally
connected with murderous outrages. His con
tention was that they were allied with people
whom they knew to be, or could have known, if
they had made rroper inquiries, to have been
prominently connected many jeans with such
outrages. The Attorney General read the evi
dence given yesterday, and asked why he was
not allowed to introduce similar evidence to
day to show what the U. R. was doing in
1SSL although not by direct mandate or specific
instructions. He did not contend that ilr.
Parnell and his associates planned murders,
but that they allied themselves intimately with
the I. R. B., and availed themselves of its
money. Knowing the character of the I. R. B.
they continued their alliance with it after most
distinct and positive notice.
It had been proved that several members of
the House of Commons attended four or five
League Conventions in America where the I.
B. B. controlled the proceedings, and the har
mony bet een them was referred to in a docu
ment read at the convention, in which the hope
was expressed that the tree which Davitt had
planted in Mayo, might grow until it had grown
into an organization that would effect Ireland's
The Court decided to admit the evidence on
the ground that the U. B. and the Clan-na-Gael
and the L It. B. were practically
the same body and united, the members of one
being interchangeable upon the others. It bad
been proved that certain persons, including
Egan, Brcnnan and Sheridan among the per
sons charred, were members of the I. R. H.
Evidence, not of one member's conversation
with another, but as to what was done in the
convention of the U. B would be evidence
against them. Other persons, especially the
members of Parliament whom Sir Charles
Russell presented, stood in a different position,
and the Court would abstain from saving any
thing regarding the applicability of this evil
dence against them, but the evidence was ad
Beach then continued his testimony. He
said that Luke Dillon, Egan, Devoy, Samuel
Morns and D. O'Mahon Connor attended the
convention, which unanimously ordered the
executive toprotect Lomassey'e familv.
Attorney-General Webster said "he only
wished to complete the reference to Lomassey
by proving the adoption of this resolution.
THE BOSTON CONVENTION.
Beach, continuing, said that he accompanied
Egan and other delegates to the Boston Con
Tention, which was held in August, ISM. EgaD
explained his escape and told how he received
Information from Dublin Castle regarding the
Intended movements of the authorities. He
knew of the order of an est for him 20 minutes
after it was issued, and immediately returned
home, packed his satchel and destroyed all the
documents in his possession concerning the L
R. B. and Carey's letters. A Scotch friend took
Ills satchel and rng to the railway station and
bought a ticket for him to Belfast. Egan
boarded the train a minute before it started.
He passed the nicht in a Belfast hotel and In
the morning took a ticket for Leeds. He left
the train at Manchester, proceeded to Hull
and took a steamer for Rotterdam.
Beach further said that Egan had told him
that Brennan got the first news of his (Brcn
nan's) being Implicated by a newspaper placard
referring to Carey's evidence againbt him.
Brennan was walking in the Strand with Lord
Mayor Sexton at the time. Thev crossed the
street, turned into a side alley and separated.
Brennan went home and packed his valise.
Bexton bought a ticket for Calais, and went
with it from Charinc Cross to London bridge,
here he mot Brennan, to whomhe transferred
the ticket The same night Brennan landed at
rEgan also told the witness that John Walsh
and Dennis McCarthy were sent to Australia
to assist Fenian prisoners there to escape. He
also mentioned Ryan. Matt Harris, Boyton,
Sheridan, Nicholas Tie and James O'Connor,
and bitterly denounced Samuel Anderson, the
Government prosecuting official. Egan also
said that if Gallagher had been tree for 48
hours longer some of the best buildings in
London would have been blown up.
A STRUGGLE TOK OFFICE.
Sir Charles Russell here quoted from a letter
written by Beach, in which the latter referred
to the difficulty any one in a large organization
encountered in being appointed to office.
Beach said ho was elected chairman of the
Illinois delegates before he wrote the letter.
Another organization, a seceding faction, then
existed. According to the Irish motto, 'If you
are not for you are forninst me," it was im
possible to belong to both organizations. Wit
ness wrote the letter desiring to explain that
he was unable to carry water on both shouldors.
Bctts was president of the preliminary secret
meeting of the Boston-convention of ISM, where
witness met Tynan with Devoy, John Bojle
O'Reilly, Dermond and Walsh. Witness knew
Tynan as Number One. He identified a photo
graph of Tynan. Tynan was not present at the
secret meetings, but he attended the open
meetings. Ho did not take a prominent part.
Sexton, J. Redmond and Mrs. Parnell attended
Attorney General Webster quoted Sexton's
speech to show that he knew Alexander Sulli
Sir Charles Russell quoted a resolution
passed by the convention approving of Mr. Par
nell and the Irish Commoners conduct and
promising moral and material aid against land
lordism. Beach said ho knew that Egan was a member
of the U. B. in 1S&3, and believed that he had
since continued to be a member. He did not
know -whether Ecan joined the L R. B. after
his expulsion in 1SSD. Tim Moroncy, Gorman,
Flatley and Toland were members of the U. B.
Eight of the 13 principal officers of the Ameri
can League were members of the U. B Wit
ness identified a report, dated September 24,
lSI, congratulating the members upon the in
creased strength of the organization and upon
having connected all the broken links in the
open convention with the secret power which
originated and controlled all their actions. Tho
Executive, the report said, intended to plant
the seeds in everyland. Strict silence con
cerning the work was enjoined upon the mem
bers. KOSSA CLAIMED TOO MUCH.
Beach declared that Rossa falsely claimed
that he did the work of the organization. Wit
ness compiled a key to the U. S. symbols for
the Judge's information.
Beach produced a copy of a circular signed
by Egan, and dated January, 18S5, forbidding
one camp sending a circular to another. The
circular said that all communications must be
made through headquarters. The Irish-American
League issued a document on June 17, 1SS3,
urging the members of the "TJ. S." to subscribe
to the Parliamentary fund. It declared that
Mr. Parnell bad defeated a strong British Gov
ernment and banished Earl Spencer and his
brutal, loathesome minions. A circular issued
on July 2o expressed disappointment at the
small amount of funds received and urged re
newed exertion. A circular issued in Novem
ber, lfcSo, asked that funds be transmitted to
Dr. O'Reilly, and announced that a convention
would be held at Chicago iu ISSfi hich Mr. Par
nell would attend. It warned members not to
talk of -U. S." matters outside, and said that
babblers would be expelled.
Witness wished to tear some private memo
randa from the circulars. Sir Charles Russell
objected and the Court sustained the ob
jection. Witurs said he visited the Southern States
in November, 18S5, with a letter from Egan, de
scribing him as a most devoted friend of the
This testimony was greeted with laughter, in
which the witness heartily joined.
In one circular, witness said, mention was
made of the expulsion of Dr. Cronan for trea
son to Ireland, and tbc violation of his oath of
obligation. Beach was on the committee that
At this point Mr. Parnell entered. He took
a scat by the side of Mr. Da-ritt, with whom he
conversed for some time.
"Egan," the witness continued, "presided at
League meetings m ISSi and 1S85. A circular
issued in March, 1SS6, referred to the 'emascu
lated and unacceptable home rule scheme, and
urged the camps to remit funds for 'delusion,'
the cipher word for dynamite.-"
Beach described the Chicago convention of
August, ISSa. He said that Messrs. O'Brien,
Redmond and Deasy were present at a secret
meeting held in Pittsburg before the conven
tion, at which the Irish National Brotherhood
was formed. Witness went to England in 1SS7,
and met Mr. Fox, a member of Parliament.
At the joint convention of the L N. B. and L U.
B. held in Chicago in June, 1SSS, it was urged
that measures be taken for the release of Gal
lagher and other prisoners in England.
Patrick Farrelf, of Pottsville, and John M.
Armstrong, members of the convention, went
to England in June, 18S5. The organization was
better on paper than iu reality. Many of the
members did not pay their dues.
Sir Charles Russell then began the cross-examination
of tho witness. Beach said he went
to America in 1SBL He had previously been in
France, and was a draper's assistant in London
and Colchester. After his arrival in America
he joined the army. He became a Fenian in
lSGa, while still iu the army. His object was to

fierce competition is his line of business of the
last half dozen years.
Walter J. Gibson, a well-known insurance
agent, of Buffalo, committed suicide about 1
o'clock yesterday morning, by shooting him
self through the head with a horse pistol. In a
Turkish bath. No cause can be assigned for
the rash act He was 43 years old and was
formerly of the firm of Kimball & Gibson,
general insurance agents, "which was dissolved
last June. Mr. Gibson was a member of the
old Twenty-first Regiment, New York Volun
teers, and served gallantry in tho war.
At daylight yesterday morning James Por
tugue. nearly 100 years old, who for 45 years
lived the life of a hermit near the village of
Phosnix, N. Y., was found huddled in a bundle
of old rags In his cabiu so badly frozen that he
died in a few hours. Half a century ago old
"Daddy" Portugue, as he was called, was
looked upon as one of tho most prosperous
farmers in this section of the State, but he be
came interested in Western land and sharpers
took all he had. His reverses seemed to de
throne his reason, and for 15 years he has lived
the life of a recluse.
