vigorously expressed lt sympathy ivitl
tho llocra In tbolr llsht with llrcat Hrltaln
The deinonntrtttlon wns planned as a nioaus
of evidencing public sentiment and In
numbers and cnthuslasmi was fully up to
tbfl expectations The keynote of tho
speeches was that the Doers wore fighting
for their independence as our forefathers
had dono In 170 Tho K therlnR assem
bled ynder theausplces of tho United Irlnh
societies and a number of leading Her
mans at tho city Joined In tho movement
Among those who occupied seats on tho
stngo were Senator Mason of Illinois Al

niond and Cochran of Missouri Dalloy ot
Texas Carraaclc and Cox of Tennessee
Itfcca Jones and fomb of Virginia Shn
forth of Colorado Meyer ot Louisiana

and Mr Van Slclen representative ot tho

resentatives of the Uulted Irish societies
and others A large delegation of Irish
Americans aud HermanAmericans front
Baltimore was In tio audience
Tho meeting was called to order by tho
chairman of tho executive committee P
T Moran tho National treasurer of tbo
Ancient Order of Hibernians with a few
words ot welcome introduced Congress
man Sulzcr ns the presiding officer of tho
evening Mr Sulzcr whb greeted entausi
Ho said As an American clttien I tint
not ashamed lo hnvo It known that uiy
sympathy Is with thi heroic Hocra lu their
dcturmlned effort to maintain their homes
and their Independence against tho piracy
aud the tyranny of tho British crown lu
a fight between liberty and monarchy l
want to see liberty win Their cause Is
a Just cause Englands attempt to weal
their country Is an outrngo an net of
Criminal aggression and should be con
deiuticd by the Christian powers of tho
world In 1776 the patriotic fathers ot
this republic fought England to gain our
Independence The South African patriots
today are fighting the same cause to main
tain their Independence This Is the only
difference Tho courage of the Iloers In
tho face of tremendous odds has chal
lenged the admiration of mankind and
their heroism agalntt almost Insurmount
able obstacles has won the respect ot tho
civilized world
Wc must do our duly This great re
public in tho name ot liberty humanity
and free Institutions must demand peace
and inako that demand good We sym
pathized with Poland with Hungary with
Oieece with all the South American re
pubilcs with Armenia and with Cuba
Why I ask in the name of ail that Is
Jiut and honorable should we now retuso
to lend our moral support and sympa
thetic aid to the patriots of South Africa
A republic that will secretly connive and
aid a monarchy to destroy a sister re
public nnd blot oltt Its free Institutions
is a republic rotten lo he core and will
soon fall like a decayed tree on the banks
of a turbulent stream to be swept away
forever There Is no doubt that the ad
mlnirtration Is secretly In sympathy with
Ireat Britain and lending her all the aid
it can Every patriotic citizen of the
republic should condemn tbeso proEng
lish tendencies
Senator Mason wa first introducedby
Chairman Sulzer Ho eald that h had
no apology to make for coming to this
meeting on Sundav night I hold ho
continued that there Is no hour loo
sacred or place too dear to speak for tbo
cause of liberty I congratulate Wash
ington on this sympathetic demonstration
in behalf of a sister republic Tho con
flict In tho Transvaal is e ttruggle be
tween liberty and slavery When yen hear
these moraxchlsts open their services with
long pravers and tell of what they wH
do for downtrodden people In far off
lands you usually find them closing wlh
a description of tho reeources and wealth
of those couptries Th Boers arc right
but unless we can aid them In some wav
lhelr cause may not trlumnh The bird
of llbertr has hitficrto always found a
resting place in this country Lately tho
American eagle it appears has taken to
eating carrion If you have any Influence
lend your voice to tho cause of the Boer >
If you have no Influence but havo convlo

Representative Bailey of Texas sijd
that he came merely to give his moral
support to tbe cause Ills addrcs was
a vigorous one aud he was loudly ap
plauded I am sick ot hearing abaiit

England Is brutal She has hunted tb

tlon tomiilplement General Bullnrs latest
dispatch Tho sueress of ho movement
depends almost entirety upon how far ho

whoso available forces aro doubllesii larger

Ibn eblllty of the floors to transportmen
Rtoics nnd ammunition qui lily and to en

General Bullors progress tbnrdfore li
essential and the public Is quite content
to wait patiently
From tho Information which the censor
has allowed to pass It Is as yet impossible
to form a correct notion of tho British
facllce One thing however Is quit
clear Tho British commanders havo prof
ited by experience and are nowavoiding
infantry charges giving pjefcrtoeeto the
more Judicious uso of artillery Thegen
eral Idea Is that 81r Iledvers BfcRer with s
some ruoii men and eighteen field sons
In holding the northern bapk of the Tugela
at Potgleters Drift while SJr Cfu rlts
Warron witn about 12000 men thirty guus
and a large force ot cavalry U working
around the right flank ot tho Boers eight
or ten miles away
One account of Saturdays flgcltng says
that tho British had fcv killed Little
relianco can bo placed upon these reports
and although the main position of the
Boers has not yet been attacked and noth
lng Is known as to Its strength Satur
days and Sundays lighting which can
lariily be described as more thsn outpost
affairs evidently entailed serious losses to
tbe Boers who are following their old
time tactics making a show of resistance
and then retreating In good order to their
prepared positions and as tbey a rd fork
ing from tho Intorlor of their lines they
may bo able to bring strong forces to de
fend their main position
Nothing Is heard regarding any counter
attack by Sir George Wbte from La dy
smith nd General millers I think
are making substantial progressremaius

the British forces
