THE IRISH LEAGUE CONVENTION.
Pith of the w Const Itntlon and Reso
Chicago, Oct. 8 The Irish convention,
came to an end yesterday. There was no
morning session because the committee on
resolutions were having a time of it putti ng
together a declaration that wou Id satisfy
mem bers thteof, but when the convention
came to order fa the afternoon there were
over 500 delegates present. The first thing
in order was the report of the secretary,
John P. Sutton, tbe pith of which was
that when the convention of 1333 ad
journed President Fitzgerald thought be
bad a united body behind him, but was
mistaken as be found as in the case of other
prominent Irishmen, 'Irish traitors ready
to stab him in the back" and "under
cover of secret plots" attempt to disrupt
the league. He then went on to score Par
nell, who he said had treated the Ameri
can league with discourtesy and con
tempt, and only used them to get money
out of them.
Adopted a New Constitution.
The new constitution was then submit
ted and adopted. It is in the main a repe
tition of the old one, except that it outs
aloof from tbe home party and makes the
league a distinctively American affair,
without responsibility to the partia"
mental y party. A clause to the effect that
Irishmen should not purchase English
made goods or patronize tradesmen who
sell them was greeted with loud applause.
The constitution provides that the leagu e
should be governed by a cabinet of seven,
to be appointed, together with the secre
tary, by the president. Ryan of Missouri,
objected to the boycotting resolution, but
was howled down.
The league' Declaration.
The resolution committee submitted a
declaration renewing the love of the
mother land while testifying to the de
votion of Irishmen to their adopted
country, whose institutions they desire to
see extended to Ireland. They regret the
lack of unity in Ireland and hope to see
"one-man domination"' obliterated. Tbe
good offices of the Irish in America are
tendered in aid of the necessary unity of
Irishmen in Ireland, and it is declared
that it is the duty of the Irish to seek
freedom bypeaceable methods, but equally
their duty to prepare, should such
methods fail, to resort to force, and the help
of Irishmen in this country is pledged to as
sist in any emergency. Those responsible
for the locking up of -1X,(jO0 subscribed
to support the evicted tenants are called
upon to release the same, and notice is
served that until this is done "'e are re
solved not to contribute another dollar"
to aid the wit Ladders.
Will Maintain the Organisation.
It is resolved that the organization be
maintained so as to be ready to help when
called upon. Sympathy is expressed for
John Fitzgearld and First Vice President
Martin in their illness, and the attention
of Ameri.a is called to American citizens
suffering the horrors of British dungeons
upon manufactured evidence because thry
spoke in favor of a free Ireland, and the'
request is made that "our representatives
in congress press the matter on the atten
tion of the state department."
Refused to Indorse McCarthy.
As an addition Judge Donnelly, of Wis
consin, on behalf of a minority of the
committee, submitted a resolution which
instructed the incoming executive to rec
ognize the majority of the parliamentary
party, or the Justin McCarthy element.
McCarthy's name was greeted with slight
cheering and prolonged hissing. A pro
longed and at times uproarious debate en -sued.
In the result the addition was de
feated by 518 to 84. Hon. M. V. Gannon,
of Nebraska, was elected president: Pat
trick Boyle, Toronto, first vice; M. D. Gal
lagher, New York city, second vice; E J.
O'Connor, Augusta, Ga., third vice, and
William Lyman, New York city, treasur
er. Secretary Sutton, of Lincoln, was re
appointed and the convention adjourned
