IMKX, Oct ia The last journey of
the great Irish leader was began Satur
day, when the casket which contained his
mortal remains was removed from hie
borne in Brighton and placed in a draped
railway carriage en route to Holyhead.
Mrs. Parnell spent half an hour with her
flead just before the removal of the casket,
and when she left the room immediately
mink into n snwin. from which she has
not yet entirely recovered. She was cn
Mrely unconscious at the time the remains
were taken away. Her floral tribute was
placed on the head of the casket. There
was a terrible scene inside the house when
the casket was about to Isij-emoved. The
grief of Mrs. Pfcrnell was most poignant,
nd she could with difficulty be per
suaded to allow the coffin to be taken
Preparations for Trouble In Inblln.
So intense was the excitement in Dublin
that the government took the most extra
ordinary precautions for the quelling of
any riot that might break out. It was
not safe for any anti-Parnellite to be seen
on the streets, Dillon was insulted while
walking on Sackville street, three men
threatening him and calling him a mur
derer. His house and the office of The
Freeman' Journal were strongly guarded,
and the troops in the barracks were kept
tinder arms ready for inst-ant service. The
police and constabulary were also rein
forced, and held in readiness for an emer
gency, and in fact Dublin was almost in a
state of siege. It has been many years
since Dublin has been in such a fever of
excitement and readiness for turbulence
of a serious character.
Arrival of the l'.ody at Holyhead.
The remains of Parnell arrived at
Kingston at 7 a. m yesterday. There was
no demonstration along the line in Eng
land nntil Chester was reached, when
deputations from Liverpool, Manchester,
Preston, and Newcastle, all destined for
Dublin, joined the train. The parlia
mentary colleagues of Parnell, including
John Redmond, John O'Connor, Joseph
Nolan, Dr. Fitzgerald, James O'Keliy,
and Henry Campbell, were among the
people that greeted the depntations on
their arrival at Holyhead, where the train
got in at 2 o'clock in the morning, in wet
and hazy weather, that well became the
rnournf ulcess of the scene. Groups were
collected on the quay to watch the trans
fer of the coffin from the train to the mail
A Weird and Mournful Scene.
It was a most depressing spectacle. The
darkness as the body was borne from the
train was unrelieved except by a few
lamps that flickered uncannilythrowing
ft weird light over the large.white wooden
ease that contained the coffin. The case
was borne on the shoulders of seamen
to the side of the vessel. The Parnellite
members of parliament and deputations
followed with uncovered beads, and sobs
that could not be suppressed gave testi
mony to thetr grief as the procession
filed down the double gangway into the
hip. The coffin was deposited in an in
closure specially fitted np for it. Through
out the voyage across the stormy and dark
waters that separate the two countries
some of the Parnellities were all the time
on guard over the remains of their beloved
THE RECEPTION IN IRELAND.
A. Multitude on the Kingston Pier to Re
ceive the Remains.
The boat made the passage in a gale of
wind and rain. At Kingston pier a mul
titude was gathered to receive the re
mains, and conspicnous among the wait
lag throng were Richard Power, M. P.;
Dr. Joseph E. Kenny, M. P.; James I
Carew, M. P.; James W. Dalton, John J.
Clancy, T. Rochefort McGulre, Col.
John P. Nolan, Patrick O'Brien, and M.
J. Corbett, members of parliament. With
the Irish members who had followed the
body from England, the group at Kings
ton included nearly every parliamentary
" adherent of Parnell. They all gathered
around the coffin in absolute silence, un
broken even by the exchange of friendly
greeting nntil after the remains had been
transferred to the carriage of the train for
A Tast and Silent Throng.
The Westland Row station in Dublin
was reached at 7:30 a. m. A vast, silent
crowd awaited with uncovered heads as
the train steamed into the station. Tim
othy Harrington, M. P., was there, and
Dr. Hackett, who attended Parnell when
bis eyes were hurt at Kilkenny, and they
joined the band of mourners. Conspicu
ous in front of the dense masses of people
were members of the Gaelic and Athletic
societies, with the curlers used in their
sports draped black and tied with green
ribbon. The representatives of branches
of the National league wore black badges,
on which were the dying words of Par
nell: "Give my love to mj colleagues and
the Irish nation."
Broke Vp the Coffin Box.
When tbe remains had been removed
In solemn silence from tbe train the coffin
was taken from the case that enveloped it
and lifted into the hearse, the glass pan
els of which permitted a fnll exposure of
the coffin to public view. The wreaths
and other floral tributes covered the top
t the hearse and were heaped upon tbe
coffin. The case in wLich the coffin had
been inclosed on the way to Dublin was
laid aside. Tbe crowd immediately seized
upon and broke it into small pieces to
carry away as mementos of the dead. As
the hearse moved from the station a body
of police formed before the procession,
which, without any design or marshal
ing, appeared to fall into an orderly line
In purely extemporized fashion.
Arrival at the City Hall.
All along the line of march a dense mass
ot people occupied the sidewalks and the
at reet, except sufficient room for the pro
cession. Tbe city ball was reached at 8:30
a. m. Tbe front of tbe ball was covered
with somber draperies, and a dense rain
came down as tbe coffin was borne into
the hall toward the catafalque. The rain
k,7as pouring down in torrents for hour
Mter boar, but it did not diminish the'
vast concourse which thronged toward
the bail, ignoring the elements in their
anxiety to show their esteem for their be
loved leader. It was an assemblage of re
markable serenity. Reverential quiet
pervaded the crowd,unbroken by partisan
cries, or the remotest symptom of ten
dency to disorder.
The Body Lying In State.
At 10 o'clock the gates were opened and
the people poured into the iuteiior.
The body lay in state in the council cham
ber, a large circular room, now heavily
draped in black, relieved by screens of
white satin bearing in black letters t be last
words of Parnell. The coffin, which rest
ed on a raised base in the ceuter of the
chamber, was buried under masses of
wreaths, floral crosses, Irish harps and
other floral designs. Photographs of the
scene were taken before the public were
admitted. These pictures show the coffin
placed at the base of the O'Connell statue,
and on either side the bold relief st;itues
of Grattan and Lucas.
From His Widow and laughters.
Conspicuous on the coffin were three
wreaths from Mrs. Parnell a cross and
anchor and circle with inscription. The
outer inscription was "My own true love;
my best, truest friend; my husband
From his heart broken wife " Inside this
was the inscription: "My dear love, my
husband. From his heart broken wife,"
and the innermost inscription: "My dear
love, my husband, my king. From his
heart-broken wife." There were also two
beautiful little wreaths from Mrs. Par
nell's daughters, with the words, "From
little Clare to my dear mother's husband,"
and "From little Kitty to my dear moth
Viewed by 40,000 Persons.
From 10 o'clock until 2 a continuous
stream of people poured into the city ball.
It is estimated that the people who paia
their last tribute of respect to the dead
leader numlered at least 40,000. The cere
mony of lying in state was intended to
close at noon, but tiie crowd continued so
liumerous that it was thought but right
rot to shut out Irishmen and Irishwomen
from an opportunity to gaze at the cas
ket that inclosed their dead, and it was
already after 2 o'clock wheu the doors at
lust were shut upon the long continued
AN IMMENSE FUNERAL CORTEGE
Fallows the Leader's Remains to ths
Tomb in tilasnevin.
At 2:45 the funeral cortege started for
tie grave in Glasuevin cemetery. It was
led by the executive of the Parnell lead
ship committee, and following came the
bii r drawn by six black horses. Sur
roundiug the bier were the parliamentary
colleagues of ParnelL Parnell's favorita
horse followed tbe bier. Then came a
strmgbody of Gaels, headed by Jame3
Stephens, the fanions Fenian organizer;
Jol n O'Leary, the well-known advocate
of .n Irish republic, and other prominent
features of the procession were John
O'C onnor, M. P., leading by the arm the
blind M. P., Mr. V. A. McDonald, of Os-
sory. and the lord mayor of Dublin in offi
cial state, preceded by the city marshal
and sword and mace bearers.
Impossible of description.
Tc describe the procession as other pa-
gear, ts are described is impossible. It was
a motley crowd of citizens well clad and
ill clad all made equal by common
mourning. The Gaels, the Foresters, tbe
homo rulers and various trade societies
came first after tbe hearse and then the
populace, some in damages, some on foot.
but all possessed by a reverential awe
that prevented disorder. The numbers of
the procession are not possible of estima
tion, but the 40,000 who viewed the re
mains was part of it. As tbe procession
started the sun burst out and flooded the
damp landscape with brightness. Tbe
streets were packed with people, the win
dows and housetops crowded, and along
the river Liffey the banks were thronged
A Strug;! at the Cemetery Gate.
Bands dropped into the procession where
they could, and in some cases were so close
together that they made discord, and
spoiled the cadence of the march. As the
bead of tbe procession reached the lower
gate of the cemetery it was found that
such a lense mass of people was wedged
in Iron; of tbe gate that the cortege could
not get through. There was a short strug
gle wi h police who tried to open a
road, but it was given up, and the proces
sion we at to the upper gate, where the en
trance was effected. Jnside the cemetery
the coffin was taken from the hearse and
placed on a platform so that the proces
sion could file past and view lL It was 6
o'clock liefore this had been well begun.
and the coffin was therefore removed' to
Tbe Funeral Ceremony.
A circle was formed and in this
the lord mayor and civic dignitaries.
and Parnell's colleagues and relatives
stationed themselves. The crush on all
sides was terrible, and the noise of shriek
ing women and of children squeezed in
the throng, aad the shouts of men strug
gling am d tbe crush made inaudible tbe
voices of the clergy reciting the ritual of
tbe Church of England. The first portion
of the service had been celebrated at tt.
Nicholas', where the remains rested for
twenty m. nates en route for the city hall.
At the grave the Kev. air. incent, of the
Rotunda chapel, andt be Hev. George Fry.an
Irish Protestant clergvman trom Man
chester, England, officiated. Tbey had to
cut the service short, as the crowd broke
through tl e protecting circle and over
whelmed tne inner group.
Final Farewell in the Gloom.
Borne tin e after, in dead darkness, when
the crowd had thinned away, the friends
grouped again about the grave and took a
last look at the coffin. It was 7 o'clock
when the mourners started to return to
the city. The funeral, if not a grand
spectacle from a showy point of view, had
an esDeciail r solemn interest attaching to
a gravely conducted demonstration. The
intense seriousness of feeling pervading
tbe multitude gave a unique character to
the whole memorable manifestation.
Apart from aocidental disorder at the
cemetery th day was without incident.
Most of the public bouses remained closed
through the day in respect for the dead.

wheu she awoke Sunday morning to find
that she had been cut off from the eastern
commercial world by the sinking of a
boat of I,3.i0 tons. Indeed, she was more
than surprised, she was startled, for if
there is any one thing on which the head
of Lake Superior depends for prosperity
that thing is the fall traffic by lake. The
grain men are the ones most worried over
the situation, for at present the export
demand for wheat is greater than was
ever known in tbe history of the city.
The Talk of the Town.
The elevator companies will reap a
small benefit from tbe increase in the
amount of wheat in store, but that will
be more than offset by the tightening of
the money market in consequence of tbe
demand for a greater amount of money to
handle the wheat. The closing of naviga
tion, for nobody knows how long, is the
principal topic on the streets, in the homes
and at the churches.
Effect at the Windy City.
CntcAGO, Oct. 12. The stoppage of nav
igation to Lake Superior by tbe sinking
of tbe steamer Susan E. Peck Saturday
will seriously affect the business of the
Lake Superior line, whose boats are now
carrying full cargoes of winter supplies
into the iron regions. Most of the lumber
and iron ore to come to this city from
Lake Superior this season has already
been moved, and there is little more to be
done in that direction.

LoXDOS, Oct. 13 Canon Doyle, the
first priest who denounced Parnell, and
who has assisted the anti-Parnellites in
all their recent elections, publishes in the
Wexford newspapers a letter which bids
fair to set all Ireland by the ears. He
throws the blame for the scandal which
marred Parnell's later career upon tbe
entire Irish party, with but few excep
tions. He charges that they willfully
condoned Parnell's immorality for years,
and adds that the reason they scorned to
notice their leader's bad morals was a

He continues in this remarkable lan
guage, "Mind what I say, and I know that
