The Famous Irishman Stabbed at O'Donovan Rossa's Office--An Ante-Mortem Statement. Ntw YofiK, Jan. 'J. At 1 o'clock this after noon several iinu ruslied out of No. 12 Chambers i-trett, in which building is located the otlieo of O' Donovan Kaa and the 1'n.itul Irishman. In a fe seconds after ward a man covered with blood, tottered down stairs to the hallway, and sank on the walk in a stream. Most intense excitement at front stoop, w hile his blood covered the side once took place and crowds flocked to the scene. Several officers rushed up, and, seeing a few men making toward Chambers street, City Hall place, followed them. One of them, a tall man, wus captured and brought back to where the dyiujj man was Ijiiii. Is this the man who stabbed you?" linked the officer. "Yes, that's the man," said the bleeding man, 'but by Heavens if lam t'oioi,' to die I'll die k' line and there will be two of us.M With that, and before the bystanders could real ize his intentions, he drew a rovjlvor aud tired two shots in rapid succession nt the man standing before him. One of the balls took etTeCt in the thih of his would-be-murderer. This still further increased the excitement, and the neighborhood became wild with all sorts of rumors. The man who was stabbed proved to be Captain Thomas 1. Phelan, of Kansas City, a'ed forty-nine. His assailant, who he says stabbed him, ave the name of Rich ard Short, tJl Tenth avenue. An ambulance Was summoned and l'helan was taken to the Chamber's street hospital iu a dyin con dition. He is tabbed in the neck and breast and other places. There were rumors that he ave away some of the secrets of the Fenian Organization. A printer named Smidt, who has a composing-room on the same lloor, next to Kossa's office, said: "I was standing at my work when I sud denly heard a noise in Kossa's office like the upsetting of tables, followed by loud and angry words and curses. This continued for some seconds, when something heavy was thrown against the wall, a man cried out something that sounded like 'Help but I am not sure whether that was tho word or not. Then the door was banged open nnd four men ran down stairs, each trying to push the other out of his way. Blood was trickling down tho face of the last man. They were half-ay down the stairs when the man with blood trickling down his face got the lead of the others. I then ran to and opened the window to our office, which looks out on Chambers street. Then I saw a man with blood on his face on the sidewalk put his hand to his pocket, pull out 11 revolver and lire at one of the men. He must have been s.hot because he pulled up his coat, placed his hand to his back and stumbled forward as if he was going to fall. A policeman on the corner caught him by the shoulder and arrested him." "Did you see O'Donovan Hossa among the four men?" T can't say that I did." "Was Joyce one of them?" "I don't know him." "Do you think you could tell the other two men if you saw them?" "No." Moses Trice, of 73 llayard street, was standing on the sidewalk and telling some of the crowd how the shoot ing occurred. A policemau near by heard the remarks and took l'rice to the station to hold him as a witness. The iolice claim to have a letter from Kossa to the wounded man, telling him to come on to New York to las office, that he liad important business for him to attend to. l'helan was asked if he wauted a minister or priest. "No," he replied "I don't want anybody, don't be'ieve in any religion; am a follower of Ingersoll." The news of the stabbing and shooting spread rapidly, and inquiries were made on all sides as to who 1'heian and Short were, l'helan appeared to be known to many men as iden titied with the Irish revolutionary move ments. Kossa was condemned by a number of his compatriots for giving publication in his paper this week to an interview printed in tho Kansas Cit; Journal, purport ed to be had with Phelan, giving a detailed account of the operations of dynamiters in England. Threats were made against Rossa's Life, and it was said his immediate friends had determined to form a body guard to protect him. Short was said to have come to this country in 1KS2, aad shot at Jim McDermott in Captain Ryan's bar-room in Chambers street. Ho is said to be a native of Cork. Ho was one of the principal leaders of tho movement directed by O'Donovan Rossa. Tho long interview in tho Kansas City Journal, published by Phehm lately, said that in June, lNNif Captain Phelan started on a voyage to Ireland. His absence was made notable by tho fact that during his so journ in Ireland Carey, the informer, alias "Power," was shot by Patrick O'Donnell. 'I he description given by O'Donnell tallied almost identically with that of Cnpt. Phelan, and for several days it was believed here that O'Donnell was an alias for Phelan, and that the Captain himself had been selected to kill Carey. Capt. Phelan return. 1 safe, but narrowly escapes! being transported for life. In an interview he gave nn account of an attempt to blow np tho steamer "Queen" nt her Liverpool dock, also of nn attempt to blowup tho Caledonian railway station at Glasgow, and mentioned the names of tho men engaged in these chemes. He also gave away tho manner in which tho mechanical forcp were nspd. l'helan was one of the originators of the skirmishing fund nnd was at one time sus pected of being tho famous "number one" mentioned by tho informer Carey in his evi dence. Ho has bn an Irish Nationalist ftH his life and has alwav been prominent in Irish revolutionary matter. Short is -aid to be one of tho Irishmen driven to America by tho treachery of J a me McDermott. of Brook lyn, who is novr Ixdieved to bo in tho pay of the British irovernment a a spy.

Michigan Congressmen Get the House Committee to Agree to Report a Bill in Land Grant Cases. Detloxt, Jan. 9. A dir.iatch to the AW says: The delegation of Michigan land own ers that is here trying to secure a modifica tion of a recent ruling of the Secretary of the Interior with reference to certain land entries are making good progre. Messrs. May bury and Cutcheon have secured Shak er Carlisle's promise to recognize them at an early day on this subject. This morning Messrs. Maybury and Cutcheon apjeared before the House Public Lands Committee and made an argument in favor of the com mittee at once reporting the bill covering the points involved. It seems that in 18G2 a law was passed fil ing the price to be paid for public lands at per acre. Before that time the law required that all public lands reopened by the government after the withdrawal of the grant should be through executive order, and the land be sold at public auction. When the law fixing the price paid for lands of this character was passed, the department ruled that it was no longer necessary to dispose of the land by public auction, as the price could not be changed. Under this ruling over 5,000,000 acres in Michigan alone have been entered by homesteaders and oth ers. A short time ago, however, a party made an entry on another man's land, claiming his title to be void, as the law had not been complied with. On an appeal to Secretary Teller the point was sustained, which makes all entries for the last twenty tive years practically void. Since Secretary Teller's decision over 400 applications have been made at the land office at Marquette by would-be homesteaders. The Marquette agent has refused to issue patents, but the cases have been appealed to Secretary' Teller, and, to be consistent with his former ruling, he must sustain their claims. Messrs. May bury and Cutcheon desire to relieve the sec retary from his embarrassment. The Public Lands Committee, after listen ing to their arguments, decided to report the following bill at the earliest opportunity and ask its immediate consideration: 'That wherever offered lands have been heretofore, withdrawn from sale or disposi tion by the United States by reason of grants made to aid in the construction of railroads or other works of internal improvements, such withdrawals having been terminated by executive order, or by act of Congress; or where lands have been directed to be re duced in price to $1.25 per acre, officers of the Land Department have, allowed en tries, locations or selections of the same, and have issued certificates or patents thereon without such lands having again been pro claimed by the President offered at public auction, vhereon (blank) day there wore no conflicting claims on record thereto, all such entries, locations, selections, certificates and patents issued thereon, and all other sales at private entry which are regular in all re spects except as to time, entry or amount of purchase money paid, are hereby confirmed and declared to be valid and legal. "That wherever lands gave been sold or disposed of by officers of tho Land Depart ment, as set forth in the preceding section, there were conflicting claims thereto on record, the Secretary of the Interior is here by directed and required to ascertain by hearing before the proper district land of ficers, in the usual manner, with full notice to all parties interested, the facts in regard to all such entries, locations or selections, and all claims of any kind assert ed to any such lands prior to said date, and to report the testimony so taken to Congress at its next session, together with a full state ment of the action in his department relat ing thereto and his recommendation as to what legislation, if any, is necessary in the premises."
