London "Daily Express" Com
ments on Redmonds Position.
[Br Cable la The *»*■■•
l^ndon. Oct. 10.— The remarkable po
litical somersault performed by Messrs.
Redmond and O'Connor during their tour
in the United States and Canada, by
which they formally recanted their de
mands for Irish national Independence
! and avowed themselves stanch ***«>*«
! tibnists and Imperialists, ha? given rise
to Mdi speculation as to the causes
which can have Induced this astonishing
volte face.
It is significant, in this connection, that
: Mr. O'Connor, who has been the jro-bc
tween in all of the government's negotia
tions with the Irish party, paid a visit to
LK>wnin£ Street just before sailing for
Canada He then had ■ lons Interview
with the chief Liberal whip.
The key to the mystery may. "The
Express" thinks, be found in the fact that
coronation year will witness the assem
bling <»f the next imperial conference in
London. The government, having bolted
and barred the door against Imperial
preference, will, it i. believed, attempt to
dish their opponents and divert atten
tion from tariff reform by submitting a
i onference scheme for the formation of
a permanent imperial council, and coup- 1
line with this a plan for gT.mtingr Home j
Rule «*ll mad in th* British Isles. Such :
a sch^rre has been foreshadowed for ;
some time past by members of the C"v
ernment and other prominent Liberals.
In the mean time th«» proposal ha-=
aroused bitter comment in Ireland, and j
Mr Redmond*! opponent* are accusing
him of betraying his country.
fß> Telegr*pli to T!i« T^buie.J
Rorton. OcL '. — Mr. Redmond said to
I"he Tribune correspondent to-night:
•The statement of Th. London Daily
Express' thai I have abandoned the
tri?h Independence movement is absurd.
I stand just where I have always stood. !

Ehot wounds, self-inflicted eight weeks

Name Is Cleveland, for Places of
Birth and Destination.
Cleveland Kotlarski, bound for Cleve
land, arrived here yesterday on the
Hamburg-American liner Cleveland.
When he and his parents are released
from Ellis Island they will start at once
for Cleveland. Cleveland la only four
days bid. He had nothing to say in the
matter of his destination, nor had he a
voice in the selection of tiie steamship
that was to I>° his birthplace.
He was born on Thursday, when th€
Cleveland was plunging along through a
heavy sea in Bid-Atlantic, and his ar
rival caused a kindly Interest through
out the ship. Women and children of
the sal«#'>n went to the ship's hospital to

seemed to enjoy the visits, enthusiastic

£100 for the little fellow, and also ar
ranged to give him one of the five thou

in her hold.

Detectives Cause Immigration
Officials to Take Them from
Fabre Line Pier.
Say They Cannot Account for
Detention and Do Not Know
at Whose Instigation They
Were Held Up.
Thr~» well dressed Frenchmen, said to
: b« wealthy merchants and close personal
friends of Mr. Fabre. the head of the
: Fabr- Line, arrived here yesterday on
I the Fabre liner Madonna, from Mar
seilles, and were pounced upon at the
pier to.Brooklyn.by four detectives from
a private agency and later taken to
, Ellis Island..
Th* Madonna, not having touched at
Naples as a port of call, had only ei^ht
steerage passengers and sixty cabin
passengers. Having such a small steer
' age list she mm promptly passed by the
' Health Beer mmi went up to her pier
in South Brooklyn.
The four detectives were on the pier
when the sransplank was put up. and
watched each passenger who came
ashore. They waited until th? three
Frenchmen. Etlenne Boyer, Jean Rau
[baud and Ludwig Mich*?, cam- ashore
and th°n detained them.
There was a heated discussion between
the Frenchmen and the detectives, and
finally Inspector Snyder. of the Immi
gration Service, was called on to take
the men to Ellis Island. The detectives
told the, inspector something which he
would no! reveal on the pier, and then
he consented .to •ad tat three French
men to the island.

detention and went to the Hotel Lafay
