The United Nlnles Tlirr.itctird with Iteprl
snl for Dyunmlt Outrages Concocted In
Lospox, Deo. 10.
James Russell Low -II, tho Amcrlcae
Mlulster, has been again assailed by tin
Metropolitan Underground Employes' As
Koclntlon. On the 23th ot Novcmbor thi
Association presented Mr. Lowell -with s
sot ot resolutions which strongly de
nounced tho Irish Iuvluclblos and Fenlam
as tho authors nt the dynamite oxplosloni
In tho Underground Railway, at Praed
street. Accompanying tlio resolutions wat
a request that Mr. Lovcll transmit tho res
olutlons to the United States Uovernmont
because tho Association believed that tin
explosions wcro really thu work of consplr
ntoru resident In tho United Btates. Mr
Lowoll acknowledged tho receipt ot tin
resolutions, but declined to forward their
to Washington, because, ns he snld, then
was not a partlclo of evidence to show that
any American was guilty of complicity In
tlm outrage. Tuls nnswer was uulte illsa-
g: leahlo to. tho employes, and thoy s Might
counsel ot lawyem. The result has just
lioen produced In tho shape nt a long pub
lic letter to tlio American MlnlsUT, which
was presented to-day. Thu document It
very (ormldablo, nnd Is Intend sd toentlrcly
huiullltato Mr. Unveil by showing the Brit
ish how much mora tho underground roil
way servants kiww about the laws of evi
dence and thu duties ot an American 1 Ju
bassador, than does the mere scholar, whe
Is serving tho United States as their Minis
ter to England. Tho memorial starts cut
with tho bold declaration that the Associa
tion of Metropolitan Underground Hallway
servants find themselves unable to agree
with the American Minister in either of bis
opinions, viz. . That there Is no ovldence K
show the complicity of airy Ameilcan, and
that there Is good reason for calling tho at
tention ot tho United States Government to
the outrage. It concludes with the some
what extraordinary threat that If Mr. Iow
ell and his Uovernmont do not In tbo future
tako action to suppress the dvnamlto socie
ties alleged to exist In tho United Statos,
the English people will protect themselvts
by "reprisals." Mr. Ixwell was somewhat
started by tho contents of the memorial,
and declined to tako any other formal no
tlco of lt, or of tho committee which pro
sented lt, than making a mereacknowledg
ment of receipt.
