From all In sympathy with tbssufferings of

ornmort nnd all who ndvocatn homo rule a
tho only remedy to better their condition we
ask cooperation and assistance to bring about
a consummation Tho time has passed for In

in what God grant may prOTO a final effort Is
I either blindly Ignorant and Indifferent to pass

Each In turn has assod away with hope de
toned to join the majority yot with prayers
ever rained ou high that tbo sunburst of light
and happiness might yot in the poor futuro
dawn on their boloved land
How often have they been botrnred In
k I our generation tho Irish peoplo hare Buffered
and almost lost tHeir cause when success
j soemod within easy grasp For months past
through the
eery effort has been imrabvod Ihroulh
nets ot one man most trusted of all who sinned
and fell by hIs own baud He thus betrayed
the welfare of his country so blindly Intrusted
to his guidance and dragged tbe chaste name
of Ireland Into the gutter with his own sullied
i reputation The necessity for assisting tho
I starving and evicted tenants of Ireland was
deeply appreciated in this country and n noble
effort was made tn effect tbo ouniose Mr
Parnell wits fully pledged to carry out this
Object but ho has betrayed his trust by his
duplicity his oinlrocation and bIn utter ds

he does his political position by false pre

I Tho poopli of thIs country arc too sharpwitted
not to fully appreciate bin purpose And lLo
fact that ho die not dart curry out his own
proposition when the opportunity vas given
him to moot Ills constituents at the polls has
bown to the American mind how fully he him
self realizes his desperate fortune ° Hols yet
claimed as a loader by a small portion ot the
Irish people W < > raise no issue with them nor
doubt their honesty but wo Impugn their judg

I associated with tho past service of an over
rated leader
Thoa who have worked and hoped for
borne rulo In Ireland are not divIded Into two
parties there exists but one party and a
I action Mr 1nrnell was the llrst to advocate
L that tbe majority should rule and the first to i
disregard the tact The opinion held by the
large majority of thinking men In this coun

the culpability of the act Irish Ammlcans were
unwilling to Interfere and wished tie differ

Wo at a distance were butter able to judgo of
the merits uf the case but our feeling of del
cacy has ben grossly l misrepresented by the
I minority Notwithstanding their representa
I tives have canvassed this country for months
past In quest of aid and support and to so
Ito JnRt purpose It Is absurdly claimed by them
that tho peoplo of America are In sympathy

district Investigators wero also on hnndheadod
by Chairman D Morgan lllldreth
Commissioner Itoosovelt was the presiding
genius of the day Ho was positive In all his
statements and ho was convinced from tho
start that tho local Board was Immaculate nnd
that the Twentyfirst district people bad been
altogether too partisan In their Republican no
tions Mr Itoosevelt did most of the talking
and tot lefore tho cession ended John Proctor
Jerk and others rf the committee put In
cisive questions to him Mr Roosevelt In his
opening speech told how ho thanked the
Twentyfirst district Republicans for suggest
ing the Investigation of tho Civil Service Board
I bad made him n greater Republican ho s ld
Ho had com tod the Inquiry and ho was read
to oblige tbo committee with any and nil docu

about thoflo who In his estimation bad borne

estimation they wero contemptible slander

iners in the Magone Board several dismis

guilty of wrongdoing

But If their evidence was wrong and could not
be substantiated be would do all in his power

our Minister to Italy has been recalled Some
time before the New Orleans eplnodo Minister
Porter obtained leave of absence from tha
department but delayed his departure from
Home on account of the negotiations resulting
from that affair Ho has now been constantly
on duty In Home for considerably moro than a
year which Is not usual In the Ministerial ser
Vice lie will not leave Europe but neverthe
less there Is reason to bellevo that his leave ot
absence from Home will be so Indefinite In Its
terms as to warrant him In delaying his return
to bin pout unless some step has been taken br
the Italian Government looking to the return
ot Us Minister to the United state Ho far as
our Government knows Baron lava was not
recalled but an Indefinite leave of absence was
granted him This Is precisely the stile of

James Howell had not abandoned big claim
to be President of the Bridge yesterday but
Col Alfred WagstalT was In possesiton ot the
office and was recognized as the nun In au
thority br Superintendent and Chief Engineer
Martin Secretary Beam Police Captain Ward
and ns far as could be learned by all the other
subordinates The olTfilrnof the bride moved
smoothly When Mr Howell reached Die
office about in oclock yesterday morning be
found Janitor Charles Kennedy who tras ap
pointed by Col Wnestaff on Tuesday seated In
the Presidents chair In front ot the desk Mr
Howell asked him If ho was there to take
charge ot the desk and he replied
Yes sir It I were In your employment Mr
Howell I would obey your orders but I am
bore at the present time by the direction ot
Col Wogstaff
Soon Col Wanlaff arrived and after met
ing Mr Howell pleasantly took his seat Intha
chair vacated for him by Mr Kennedy The situ
ation was not discussed and In a few minutes
Mr howell withdrew remarking that tio Hid
come business tn attend to In the courts Col
Wncstaff said afterward that ho had taken
the oath of ofllco as trustee before
lib camo to the mooting on Monday
afternoon As nn bridge checks would be
paid by the banks unless signed with his name
the validity of lila claims to the 1rosldenoy
could readily bo determined He thought that
every olllcer of the bridge recognized hIM a 3
President and as far m ho could so the
bridge was ax perfectly subordinated to autjior
iiynajt had been lu any duty In Its history He
milled at the ouggestlon that there was a sus
picion that Timmauy Hall Intended to carry
off the bridge mid use It as a private political
So far ns my power coos he said the
bridge will bo run In tho interest of both cities
anduf taxpayers There is going lo be no
raid Men who get drunk ure uncivil orln
cumpetent will be discharged but all good
men who do their duty will stay
In answer to a direct question by Col Wag
tuff both MincriiHeDdont Martin and teorq
tary Ileam recognized him ns President and
as Mr Martin virtually directs the iiolloo and
nil the other working force on the bridge there
was no further doubt that Col VagstalT was In
complem possession Col nR6tatT remained
at the ofllco until late In tbe viternoon trans
acting otllolal bushiest and him
self with the allalrs ot the bridge lie re
marked that there were a great many thing
to learn nnd that ho was going to study them
to the smallest details in this work he oz
lectud 10 receive valuable ahsUtance from
Vlce1resldont howell whose years of service
could not be forgotten or overlooked
Mr Howell lid not return to the office after
hlsdepnrture In the morning but be remained
mr several bourm In the vicinity of the City
Hull conlerrlng with personal and political
friends He bad a long and confidential talk
wlthaxIleglKter hugh MclHiiKhlln the man
ager of the Democratic forces in Kings county
but neither ot them would say anything as to
Its purpoit If Mr McLaughlin feels hurt over
the action of Mayor Grant and the New York
truitoan the fact has not been manifested by
any expressions of opinion on his part There
N no mistaking the fact bow ever that Mr
unwell himolt Is chagrined nt being dip
Dlncod from tho control of the bridge atthis
particular period In Its history when plans for
Its development under full headway lie
bud the utmost confidence that be would re
main President for nn Indefinite number of
veers Tho general talk around town did not
indicate that much sympathy was leu lor him
Jim Howell H Ud nn active and Influential
Democrat has been In public office nearly a
quarter of n century He has been Alderman
Uuporvlsornt Line Mayor for two terms und
brulco President ion MX years and It seems to
me this should satisfy the ambition of any or
ulnarv man 1 don t think that the removal nf
Mr Howell will roult in any etrnlned relations
between the Kings county Democracy and
Tammany Hall
The llruoktvn Citizen however which is sup
posed to bo lbs organ of the recular Demo
cratlo organization had this to say yesterday
In a doubletraded editorial
The Tammany organization has on more
than ono occasion In the not remote past
been tinder obligations to lbs Democracy ot
Kings county and tho probabilities are that no
orr severe tax will ba laid upon anybodys
pattonoo befoio n similar state of things re
ruts It Is very much easier for a not of politi
cians tn prove that they are unworthy or the
oinlldonco wnlcb prevail among gentlemen
than to gain the friendship or a holy so well
able to take cats of Itself under all circum
stance as the organised Democracy of this
city The Presidency ot the bridge cannot be
much misused by Mayor Grants nominee
without incurring consequences that will eo a
great deal further in the direction of redress
than the bridge Presidency or the New York
Mayors ofllce
Mr llercen of counsel for the bridge said
The report that we have been noting lor Mr
Unwell In thin matter Is not true Wo are
counsel for the trustees and not for Mr Howell
It Is I our business tn see that the affair Is
justly settled and not to take sides with either

Then the young man not In his lino work
Once he raised the cheek 1000 Another time

The appropriation of these large sums of

Mr Mallory at lenath accused him

Partner Sargent StoT oftbn Pleatg aad
Ideatlflratlon of the Body
John S Sargent the ranch partner ot Robert
flay Hamilton who has come here from his
ranch at Marymere Wy to prove to Gen
Bchuyler Hamilton that his son Is really dead
told the story yesterday of Mr Hamilton
death and the finding of his body In Snake
River Hamilton Irft the ranch be said on
Aug 22 Four or live days before he bad told
Mrs Sargent that ho was going out to bunt
antelope and Mrs Sargent had told him he
must take a guide Hamilton replied that
guides were a nuisance and that he was well
able to take care of himself
Ha rode away on Mrs Sargents pony
Baby and ho left a note Informing me of time
fact at South Landing on the lake said Mr
Bargent That was the day following and
the note contained probably the last woids he
ever wrote I was away from the ranch for
several days I returned on Aug 27 and
found that nothing had been beard from Hay
Mrs Sargent wan greatly worried I didnt
fear anything I thought It likely that
he bud met Carroll hunting party
and joined It or that he might have
done any nt a dozen things that would
delay him However I sent an agent over to
Jacksons Hole to get men for a searching
party Jacksons Hole Is > settlement of trap
iierii and the men there know every foot of
the country I offered 15 a day for every man
who would meet me at South Landing that
night tn join In the hunt Quite a crowd re
sponded and I sent them off In different direc
tions The first man who went up the Snake River
did not do his duty Ho returned and re
ported that the body was not there On Aug
50 two of the searchers found Hamilton
horse and his dog Jocko They were near a
gap In the timber several miles below the lake
The horse was hurt and half starved The
nannchos ot an antelope und a heavy saddle
were across his back and u 85foot lariat was
tied around them tenderfoot fashion I
sent these men to camp at the place where the
horse and dog war found and to search lu all
directions from that centre The second day
they lound the body It v as across the river
from the outfit and was lying six inches below
the snrlaaeof the water held fast by sedge
wood In which the heavy Californian spurs
Hamilton wore had become tangled
There was no doubt that Hamilton was
drowned He bad come to the gao In the tim
ber by the river over which be had to cross I
think and had started to cross with his horse
He found time water too deep and left his horse
and started to swim ashore He was a splendid
swimmer but the big spurs were too much for
him and when they caught In the sedeewood
ho was gone There Is no question at all
that the body found was that ot Hamilton
I recognized It myself and the things that were
found on it were proof conclusive He had
probably been in the water week when found
His watch had stopped at 930 We burled
him at sunrise on Sept 4 at my ranch I did
not make the news of his death known until he
bad been burled because I was to busy
Mr Sargent did not see Gen Bchuyler Ham
ilton yeserday He wrote to him asking for
an appointment but lastnlght lu had received
no reply He called on Gilbert M rjpelr who
Is I one of the executors of the dead man will
and the guardian of Baby Heatrlce lIe went
nut walking last night with Mr Spelr He said
ho expected Ore Hamilton to call on him to
Jay If he did not he would go to Stolen
Island himself and see the General
