tho convention itself. Its delegates will
go thoro with very general instructions,
if any. The convention may he expect?

convention has done of late years?ad?
vance the material interests of the
The South has an abundance of cheap
labor. It has not the needed oloments
of skilled labor insufficient quantities
to keep paco with tho development of
industries or to permit the development
of industries in which capital will
readily seek investment.
Nuxt to the production of pig iron, in
which a large proportion of compara?
tively unskilled labor is employed,
come a great variety of manufactures in
which three-fourths of tbo labor is
highly skilled. High mechanical skill
indicates a high order of intelligence.
Intelligent men demand the surround?
ings which may givo their children
education and opportunity to rise in the
world. Thoy want to work in towns
whero there aro schools.
Intelligent and highly skilled mo"
chanics will not leave cities whore
they have tho advantages of paved
streets, public water supply, improved
soworago, gas and electric lights, street
railways, and live in a howling wilder?
ness at tbo same wagos. Nor will they
bo content in entering new communi?
ties until these advantages are shown
to bo forthcoming.
Therefore, it is important that tbo
Immigration Convention, if it deals with
this important subject, should have
prepared to lay before tho highly skilled
labor of the North,statistics showing t ho
growtli of tho public school system, the
increase in southern cities of public im?
provements, the miles of street, railways
in operation, tho places which bavo
waterworks. Tbey should show how
much money is being expended for
sewerage, how much for paving. In
short, tho skilled mechanic of the
Jlorth should be given accurate and
available information as to how oloscly
the manufacturing centers of the South
are approaching tho standard to which
bo is accustomed.
Then givo him the list of advantages

Farnell seems to be a cross between
Speaker Heed and the great Frenchman
whoso motto was ' Audacity, Audacity,
always Audacity !" Ho soizod upon the
offic) of United Ireland, tbo leading
. Irish Nationalist paper long edited by
William O'Brien, now in this country,
and, aided by a strong body of his adher?
ent?, ejected tbo opposing editors. The
papor was later recaptured by his oppon?
ents, acting in the namo of Mr. O'Brien.
Tho significant fact of tho recapture
lies in the fact that organized bands of
laborers assisted tho anti-Parnellitos.
This shows to the American public what
has long been known in Ireland, that
Parnell has hot tho sympathy of *hc
Irish laborers. It should bo clearly
known and understood that while many
of the Irish tenant farmers are wretch ed
ly poor, others are very well to do, oc?
cupying farms worth thousands of
pounds and paying several hundred
pounds annual rental.
Not infrequently it is tho latter class
whose light has been supported by Par?
nell, notably on the Ponsonby estate.
His name has at no time been directly
associated with any measure for the
benefit of the Irish farm laborer or the
poor of tho great cities, who are in?
variably oppressed by rents out of all
proportion to the values of their hold?
That is one reason why Parnell has I
never had the hold on tin' masses of Ire?
land which have given their hearts to
such men as John Dillon and Michael
That is the reason why Irish labor
unions detailed guards to sei- that Par?
nell did not again got possession of the

i'roni the Chat tanoo.'a Times.
If Mr. Darnell is crazy there is surely
much method in his madness. Never
has he shown Buch mastery of a difficult
situation before as in tie- prosent crisis.
He has clearly outwitted the ablest
English strategists and put the oppo?
nents of his 1 >adership in the Irish party
in a hole: and he did it all single hand?
ed, without a sign of help from any man
or factiou or party, Our deliberate opin?
ion isthat Mr. Harold b'rederio writ's
imself down a dunce and du Hard, when
writes Parnell down a maniac.
