.Vashington, March 13.-The defence con
tinued in presentation of petitions and other
official papers in the Star route trial this morn
ing. After about two hours consumed in mo
notonous reading, Mr. Iugersol) said his sup
ply of papers was exhausted, but he was hope
ful of finding more for the afternoon session,
although the court seemed to attach small im
portance to this kind of evieence, remarking
that a house full of it would not weigh a feath
er. Mr. Wilson procured a fresh supply of pa
pers and continued the reading.
Ray B. Eaton, of Bath, Maine, Deputy Col
lector of Customs, and formerly corresponding
clerk in the Second Assistant Posi master Gen
eral’s office, was placed upon the stand to Bhow

allow testimony of that character.
Walter Spangler, of the inspectors’ division
of the Post Office Department, described the
method pursued in making fines and deduc

of this witness and arguments to which it gave
rise occupied the remainder of the day’s ses

WHOLESALE FORGERY.
A Schenectady Broker Swindling
Right and Left.
$250,000 Filched from His Victims.
Taov, N. Y., March 13.—It has been dis
covered that Emmett O'Neil, a Schenectady
broker who recently tailed, lias fled and that
he victimized parties in Schenectady and
Duanesburgh out ol 250,000.
Having the handling of his fathers’ estate
and being presumably wealthy he was elected
a director of the Schenectady Bank. From
the books of the bank he learned that many
farmers in Daaneaburgh had foods to invest.
He obtained possession of their money on
plausible representations and gave as security
forged mortgages. Where further proof was
asked lie would even forge assignments of
mortgages, inclnding the county clerk's certifi
cate and a copy of the record. He also forged
notes. Nearly every person in the town of
Daanesbury who had money is victimized. In
Schenectady the losses are counted by scores.
O Neill went to New York, where, it is said,
ho made an unsuccessful attempt to ra'se
©20,000 on forged securities. It is believed he
has gone to Earope
PREVENTION OF CRIMES ACT
Unpublished Correspondence Between
Mr. Lowell and the Secretary of State.
ashington. March 13.—The followiug is
the correspondence between Mr. Lowell and
Secretary Frelingltuysen relative to the Pre
vention of Crimes Act.
On July 14, 1882, Mr. Lowell wrote to the
Secretary of State from London as follows re
specting the new act:
It is the revival of the Alien act as part of
the Crimes Act, which alone directly concerns
oar relations with this Governmet. Ques
tions are likely to aiise under it which will
need to be treated with extreme delicacy and
discretion. It will be rather to the per
sonal application of the act than to its princi
ple hat objection will lie, and I should be
glad to be armed beforehand with the opiniou
of tbe Presicieut as to what my general line of
action should be uiujer these new circumstan
ces. There mast be a great Dumber of natur
alized American cilizeus in Ireland, besides
those that have rendered themselves obnox
ious to the local authorities, and the alien
clauses of tbe act may very probably strength
en the temptatiou of private enmity to bring
false accusations as it undoubtedly increases
the opportunity for them. I have every rea
son to believe that under the present govern
ment the act will be applied with caution and
discrimination, but a change of Ministry may
take place at any moment. In any event,
however, I think myself safe in predicting
that the provisions of the act will be brought
to bear only in the cases of men who have
made or may make themselves particularly
prominent by inciting to disorder or defiance
of authority.
The Secretary of State replied to Sir. Low
ell on September 22 as follows:
The careful attention which you have evi
dently given to the subject and your last com
ments on tlie policy that could have dictated
so extraordinary a measure iD a country whose
traditional history in regard to the freedom of
the individual, the security of the domicile and
the right of every man accused of crime to an
impartial trial has formed its crowning glory,
relieve me from the necessity of giving you
anything more than general directions as to
your future conduct in connection with cases
affecting American nitizeus that may possibly
come before you. Nevertheless, I deem it
proper, in tbe interest of our citizens and in
compliance with your own expressed desire to
that effect, to put you in possession of the gen
eral views of the President on this recem' act
of the British parliament—an act which he
conceives may seriously affect a largo number
of the citizeus of this Republic.
It is, as you justly observe, the revival of
the Alien act as a part of the Ciimes act that
more directly concerns us, and it is this
feature of the measure which has caused the
President to feal anxiety as to its possible
effect on the business aud social relations of
American citizens particularly those of Irish
birth. Many Irish-American citizens have
parents, brothers and sisters resident in Ire
land, and whenever they learn of their desti
tution, as the most effective mode of relief
they send a member of the family to Ireland
with the means to aid them. The possibility
that persons in pursuit of their lawful business
enlarames. or on thnir mission of benevolence
should come under the operation of the pro
ceedings contemplated by provisions of the new
law, is much to bo deprecated. The oppor
tunities for this kind of annoyance which the
act affords for the gratification of private
enmity, as you justly remark, increase the
grounds of this apprehension, and whon to
this is added the superserviceable zeal of
local officials, it is hardly to bo expected that
an Irish-American citizeD, however innoceDt
he may be in act and intention,should consider
his person or his property safe in that country
His private although temporary abode may
be forcibly visited by night or day, his papers
and his valuables may be taken from him and
subjected to search, and he may be ordered
out of the country at the will of the Executive,
with tbe stigma of guilt upon him and without
having had an opportunity for hearing or trial.
The President, moreover, cannot contemplate
the enforcement of this measure on mere
suspicion agamst American citizens without
fears of its having an unhappy influence upon
the good feeling which exists between two
great nations of common origin and common
language.
I need scarcely add that this government
has no sympathy with the motives or the
methods of the class of indiscreet individuals,
insignificant in number, in this country whose
ill directed zeal can neither serve the cause
of Ireland nor reflect credit on the country of
their adoption. The law-abiding and peace
able American citizens of Irish birth should
not be exposed to suffer on their account. The
President, looking only to the interests of
American citizens, has deemed it proper that
these suggestions should |bo transmitted to you
iu view of any future contingency. It would
be difficult, in the absence of any actual case,
to give you any more specific instructions.
Much must be left to your own judgment.
Cases may arise when it will be necessary for
you to act at once without consulting the de
partment; in such cases tbe President trusts to
your discretion. You will, of course, keep
the department informed of whatever steps
you may find it necessary to take in any and
every case that may come before you, using
the telegraph for that purpose when you deem
it expedient.
LABOR TROUBLES.
Strike of Straw Workers.

ployed in the blocking and pleasing rooms of
the Union Straw Works, about 100 in number,
Btruck yesterday against the employing of
John Costello as overseer. A short time ago
the overseer who had charge of the rooms, and
was well liked, was discharged and Costello
put in bis place.
The operatives claim that he has been over
bearing, and much dissatisfaction has been
manifested, which resulted in the strike. A
committee of three waited on the treasurer of
the company, who asked time to consider the
matter, which was granted.

Fabl River, March 13.—The Spinners
Union held a long aud largely attended meet
ing tonight , at which the discussion was more
extended than at. any held for some time. The
principal topic was the arbitrary discharge of
spinnuers by overseers, of which complaints
were made from several mills, and the general
sentiment of the meeting was in favor of a
strike at snch mills if the practice continued.
The meeting endorsed the resolutions of the
Central Trade Union at Boston in condemning
the action of Senators Hale, Anthony and
Plnmb, in relation to the Washington Typo
graphical Union, and also voted to defend

PATRICK EAGAN.
The Treasurer of the Land League
in New York.
The Purpose of His Yisit to this
Country.
New York,! March 10.—Patrick ||Eagan
treasurer of the Irish Land [League arrived in
this city today and is now stopping at
the Grand Central Hotel. When asked the
name of the vessel on which he arrived and
the port from which he sailed he asked to be
excused from answering as to do so would be
to give a clue to private matters.whicb he did
not wish made public.
Eagan in a lengthy interview regarding his
alleged escape from Dublin says the statements
are entirely without foundation. He says the
ehief purpose of his visit is commercial busi
ness—to visit Chicago, St. Louis, St. Paul and
other large flour exporting centres in connec
tion with his firm in Dublin as they deal large
ly in A merican flour His decision to do so
was hastened by urgent request of Sheridan
that he should give evidence in the extradi
tion preceedings now pending against him and
also by a strong letter received from Mr.
Mooney, president of the American Land
League and other friends, to come to America
and give the leaders of the movement here
such information as was in his power regard
ing the situation at home.
Eagan denies the truth of the statement that
he was obliged to flee from Dublin in disguise
to avoid arrest. Regarding the prosecution in
connection with the alleged assassination con
spiracy in Dablin he says the government will
be wanting in its duty|lf it does not do every
thing possible to break np such a conspiracy
and convict its members, provided it acted
fairly and squarely. He denies that the land
league funds contributed toward the conspiracy
claims. The object of the Castle officials is
to connect the laud league with the commis
sion of outrages, and thus damagejthe national
party and it will stop at no villainy however
black to accomplish this. He says he is in
formed that the evidence of informer Carey
was accepted to criminate him (Eagan) and
through him the land league.
In regard to Sheridan whose extradition lias
been attempted by Great Britain, Eagan said:
“The charges are simply ridiculous. Forster
has repeated in the House of Commons that
Sheridan was constantly going back and forth
from me in Paris to the outrage mongers
in the we<t of Ireland. Sheridan left Ireland
for Paris October, 1881, and has only returned
there once since. That visit was made in
December, 1881, when he was, of course, dis
guised, as a warrant for his arrest had been
issued. His object then was to investigate
and harmonize certain alleged difficulties in
connection with the ladies' land league. I
then gave to him £100, half of which he gave
to Rev. Mr. Lawler of Valencia for the relief
of evicted tenants who were in great need. He
also gave other sums to evicted tenants who
were in distress. He gave me vouchers for all
his expenditures.”
aooui me coarges oi misappropriation oi
land league funds made by Ladv Florence
Dixie he says: “Lady Florence Dixie has
been led through ber craving for notoriety to
become the month piece of Richard Pigott
whose own statements would receive no atten
tion. In April, 1881, Pigott wrote me he
had been offered §500 by castle officials to
publish a statement in his paper (The Irish
man) alleging misappropriation of land league
funds.”
He said he needed the money and threaten
ed to accept the offer unless I sent him £300.
Of course I refused to do so, defied him to do
bis worst. Subsequently a pamphlet, the
manuscript of which was iu Pigott’s hand-writ
ing, was set np in type for Lady Florence
Dixie. She became frightened at the serious
charges it contained against the leaders of the
Land League and gave orders that the few
copies printed should be burned and the forms
broken up. I secured one copy, and all the
charges made since by Lady Florence Dixie
are those that were then made in the pamph
let. They are entirely false. My accounts
have been tboronghly audited by John Dillon,
Rev. Father Sheehy aDd Matthew Harris No
complaint has ever been made by actual sub
scribers to the Land League fund.
There is now on hand between §25,000 and
S-0,000, all of which is invested in American
securities in the names of five trustees.
Eagan will probably remarn in this country
for three or four months He will remain in
this city about ten days. He expects to visit
Buffalo to see Mooney and to visit Boston. He
will be nresent at the convention to be held in
Philadelphia March 25tb. He earnestly dis
claims any intention to make any speeches
while traveling here. Parnell will certainly
be present at the convention, he says, if it is
possible. If he cannot come Mr. Sexton will
probably come over iu his stead, bat both of
them cannot be absent from Parliament at the
same time.
