Dublin-, Nov. 18. The death of P. W.
Nally, the noted Irish National party
leader, who died Monday week in Mount
Joy prison and whose remains have just
been interred in Glasnevin cemetery, near
this city, will undoubtedly prove one of
the sensational features of the battle to be
fought in parliament immediately after
tlie reassembling of the bouses. , For once
it is expected that the sympathies of even
some of the Tories will be enlisted in the
approaching inquiry, for it is claimed that
.Yilly'g death was directly due to most
h wrsh and infamous treatment received at
the hands cf Jlhe keepers of. Millbank
prison, Ixndon, where Nally was detained
1 revious to being transferred to Mount
Charge of a Coroner's Jury
The friends of. Nally are not., the only
people to make these charges; they are
not party charges not the usual charges
made by Irish Nationalists agaiust the
keepers of the English prisons in which
they have been unfortunate enough to
sojourn for periods of months or years.
The charges made were the result of an
ioquiry made by a corouer's jury in this
city, who, after hearing a great deal of
testimony for and against the charges
made, after examining the keepers of the
two prisons, and eliciting from thein
some most startling admissions, Monday
rendered a verdict to the effect that P. V.
Nally, instead of dying from typhoid fe
ver as announced by the prison officials,
died from the effects of the harsh and
cruel treatment the unfortunate Irish
man had been compelled to endure in
BMd'I Want the Prisoner to Live.
This treatment, according to the ver
dict of the jury, so shattered Nally 's
health that he was practically in a dying
condition when transferred to Mount Jov
prison. It was also intimated at the trial
max this transier was notmauewitn tlie
intention of in any way benefiting the
prisoner's health, but simply in order to
prevent him from dying in Millbank
prison. It was the idea of the prison offi
cials, it is claimed, that it Nally died in an
Irish jail the matter would not attract so
much attention as if be died in the heart
Many Things Are Possible.
Of course it is possible, upon being rub-
jeered -to a parliamentary investigation,
that the serious charges made against the
keepers of Millbank prison may dwindle
down to a comparatively small matter;
but the facts remain that a coroner's jury
which inquired into the cause of Nally's
death has most distinctly and emphati
cally announced in its official decision
that Nally's death was caused by most
harsh and cruel treatment received at the
hands of the prison officials of Millbank
Will Make It a Political Question.
William O'Brien, John Dillon, and Jus
n McCartbv have had their attention
called to this matter, and they are already
arming themselves with facts gathered
from the coroner's inquest and eisewbere
in order to be prepared to make the death
of Nally a battering ram with which to
make a powerful onslaught upon the Con
servative government. Uladstoue s atten
tion has also been called to the matter.
and it is expected that he will not let such
a chance of pummelling the lories escape
him ensilv. The Irish members claim
that the treatment of Irish political prison
ers li no whit better than the treatment
of anarchists and other political offenders
by the czar.
WHY NALLY WAS PERSECUTED.
He Wouldn't Testify for The Times
Scene at His Death-Bed.
It is said that Nally had been fairly well
treated, such as convict treatment is in
England and Ireland, until the time of
the Parnell commission. His refusal to
testify before t hat-body, in support of the
charges made by the London Times, seat
ed his fate. From that moment be was a
marked man. He was first subjected to
ill usage in Down pat rick jail, but it did
not break his spirit. While be and others
were being removed from Downpatri ck
to London, he cried out with some of hi:
companions: "uod save Ireland; con
found ber enemies." The guards at once
seized upon Nally as a victim, and al
though others were as guilty as he of tlie
crime of shouting for Ireland, they pun
ished bim only.
Some Methodsor Punishment.
It is also claimed that he was punished
on tbe slightest pretext, and frequently
confined in his cell for loug periods
sometimes twenty-two out of twenty-four
hours. Every petty tyranny handed down
through generations of English prison
keeping was exercised upon him until ha
became entirely broken down in health.
Even then maltreatment did not cease;! be

routine as a healthy man. When tbey did
give him bis medicine tbey forced it down,
him like a dog, sneering at biselaims to
be considered ill. Entries on the books of
the prison show that Nally was treated

This was grudgingly granted. As night
approached the brother stood by tbe bid-
side of the dying mau, holding the chillv
hand in his grasp. Suddenly a keeper ap
proached and roughly said: "You must
go. No visitors are allowed in tbe prison
after nightfall. The brother begged fox
leave to remain, but tbe keeper insisted
and a' length rudely pushed Dr. Nally
toward the door. The dying man In bed
made a faint motion, as it be remembered
bis former athletic days and would fain
have gone to the rescue of his brother.
Then he sank back exhausted on the pil
low and Dr. Nally was ejected from the
prison. Hilf an hour later the prisoner
was freed by death.
CAN . POLICE THE MAILS.
Says Attorney (ieneral Miller in the
Lottery Case Argument.
Washixgtojj, Nov. 18. Argument in
the cases involving the constitutionality
of the anti-lottery law passed by the last
congress was continued in the United
States supreme court yesterday before a
full bench. Mr. James C. Carter, of New
York, concluded his argument for
newspaper ' publishers. Attorney
Gutieral Miller, following Mr. Carter,
closed the case for the government. He
contended that congress bad the right to
police the mails, and this, he said, was
proved by the government quarantining
mail matter from yellow fever districts.
The government could police all com
merce aud mails to prevent the spread of
An-ient History a Boomerang.
Mr. Miller said counsel for the other
side had stated that a hundred years ago
preachers were interested in lotteries.
Yes," said Mr. Miller, "and little more
ban a hundred years ago it was thought
necessary for the good of religion to burn
Quakers and to indulge in the practices
of tbe holy inquisition." Congress in pars
ing the lottery law had simply told
Louisiana that she might keep ber lottery
but that she could not use the United
Slates mails to send her lottery matter in
to other states. That was what tbe law was
and that was as far as congress had gone.
Mr. Thomas J. Semmes, of counsel for
I) u pre, one of the convicted publishers.
closed the case for the contestants of th
constitutionality of the law. He elabor
ated the arguments oi other counsel.
