ENVOY'S MESSAGE DELIVERED TO THE IRISH OF ST. LOUIS. Continued From Pace One. for the work in which Mr. Redmond had come here. He sold that there are no better citizens than among the 19.000 natives of Ireland vho llvo In St. Louis. After a eolo. "Irish Serenade," by John A. Rohan, the Reverend W. W. Boyd spoke at length on tho reasons that made sym pathy and support for the Irish cause In American a matter of necessity as a work in tho c-iuso of humanity. Mr. Stave Morton sang "My Pretty Irish aiaic. The prolonged demonstration when Mr. Redmond was introduced indicated that the speaker had an audience of enthusiastic fcymnathizers. For half a minute the crowd stood, waving handkerchiefs, hats and um brellas, cheering and yelling. Sir. Redmond's address was a forceful statement of conditions in Ireland and a passionate, convincing plea for ft cnuso which he said is now about to be won. After thanking the audience for the wel come extended him. Mr. Redmond said tho meting showed the spirit of tho Irish people of St. Louis to be as high as ever. Sir. Ileduiond's Speech. "I am delighted with this demonstration for two reasons," ho said. "In the first place, it villi give courage and hore to our people at home In the struggle they are making for freedom; and. in tho second place, this great gathering v. ill bring dis appointment to those enemies of Ireland wfo predicted that tho Interest of Irish America In tho national caue has de clined. "I would like to have it clearly under stood that I am here to-night not merely upon my own IndMdual responsibility as an Irish representative, but as a delegate of iach Bnd every one of the eighty-two gentlemen who compose the united repre sentation of Irelard in the British Parlia ment. The Irish National party. In conven tion In Dublin, unanimously elected me to deliver a message to the American people, and I trust that it will bo remembered that in everything I say I am expressing the opinion of the whole Irish party freely elect- 40-f a UUSOLUTIOXS ADOPTED AT ItEUJlOJD MEETI.G. "Whereas, That as representatives of the Irish race in America, who are auxiliary to the United Irish League of Ireland, it is but appropriato that our unmistakable sentiments bo out lined on the questions now upper most In the minds of the Irish pec plo; therefore, bo It "Resolved. First That we reassert the sentiments of James Flnton La Ior as- published in the Irish Felon in 1S4S, that "the entire ownership of Ireland, moral and material, up to the sun and down to the center of the earth. Is vested as of right In the people of Ireland. The soil of the country belongs as of right to tho entire people of the country: not to any one clas3, but to the nation.' "Second That we Indorse that an cient and truly national declaration that Ireland io of right and ought to be an independent nation, with her own government by her own pecple, and that we will afford her all the moral and physical support In our power to that end. "Third That we indorse the prin ciples, platform and methods of the United Irish League in Ireland tnd its leaders in their efforts to ecure for Ireland its rightful status among the nations of the earth, and that we will foster tho organization n Amer ica to support the organization in Ireland. "Fourth, That we condemn every thing that tends to divert the minds of the Irish people from their own country, to the detriment of the best interests of tho raco and to the en couragement of the curse of emigra tion, under which the population of our motherland is slowly wasting an ay. "Fifth That In the revival of ths Gaelic language and the programme of the Gaelic League we recognize u. m03t efficient instrument In Keeping tho Irish true to their native land, and ve commend the diffusion of t!-e language to our brethren In Amer ica." THOS :.in JXO. P. LEAHT. R. d. lan :n. Committee. :- B4 IS cd by the Irish people at t' e last general olectlon. "I have no Intention of finding fault with any section of ltlshmen who may not agree v.lth the policy of the party 1 represent. I extend on behalf of that party the fullest respect to the opinions of those who may be in opposition to our policy. At the cams time I think I am Justified in .laying that tho same respect shall be shown for tho opinions of the Irish members of Parlia ment, representing, as they do unitedly, the expressed desire of a vast majority of the Irish people in the old country. Irish More United Than,, Ever. "The first part of the message I desire to deliver"" is that the Irish pooplo to-day. politically speaking, are mora united than perhaps they have ever been before. Tho feuds and factions of the past . have been forgotten, and upon the platform of tho United Irish League all the leaders of the Farnelllte and Antl-Parnellito par ties stand absolutely united. In the House of Commons and at home in Ireland the Irish people and their national representa tives are to-day working with the utmost harmony. "The national spirit of Ireland was never higher than to-day. The detestation of the people for British rulo probably is stronger than ever it was and the resolves of the people to achieve the freedom of Ireland is more determined than ever. At the end of a hundred years of British rule, the na tional feeling of Ireland is as bright as It was In the days of the rebellion of '&S. By every test, there haB been no falling away from the national Idea. Work of Aattonal Organisation. "At all the cloctloils In Ireland, whether parliamentary or municipal, the people In variably refused to elect candidates other man tnose who pledged themselves uncom Dromltlnelv to use their authority to Dro- Promisingly to use their authority to pro- mote the establishment of a freo Parliament for tho Irish people. Tho union of th Irish race at home to-day and the continu ance of tho spirit of high patriotism which animates tho people arc unquestionably due to the work of the present Irish national organization, tho united Irish League. vhich Is in all respects a worthy successor of the Land League movement established v. 1th so much success by Davit and Pornell nearly a quarter of a century ago. "I am aware that there are those who believe that not by constitutional agitation can bo achieved the freedom of Ireland. I can only say that for the last twenty years very many substantial reforms hae been won by agitation for the Irish peopie; and we are convinced that the maintenance of the strong combined movement in Ire land, together with Independent action in tho British Parliament, will In the future achlcvo many measures calculated to im prove the lives of the people and to strengthen their demand for self-government. "As far as revolutionary methods are concerned. I believe that the vast majority of the young men of Ireland would be quite prepared to take the field and fight for their liberty If any suitable chance present ed itself. The spirit of the nation as I have said, is ns high as ever. The lives, tho lessons of Emmet and of Tone, and of the men of '4S and '67, are treasured by the Irish race in the old country. Ireland of to-day is disarmed, and an appeal to force without preparation and suitable means would be disastrous. And while the members of my party wish success to all sections of Irishmen who have for their aim the welfare of the country, they be lieve that under present circumstances tho continuance of an agitation upon these lines is essential for the protection of the Irish people and cannot, under any circum stances, Interfere with the actions of any tct of Irishmen who may desire to pro mote the cause of the country by methods which may appear more efficient to them. Many Good Results Achieved. "Already the United Irish League has achieved many good results. Upon the land question It has welded into one body ths Catholics of the South and the Protestants of the North, with the result that thero la an Immediate prospect of the final abolition of lantSordism and of making of ths tillers of tho soil tho owners thereof. Our move ment, from this point alone, would be well worth the support by all lovers of Ireland, but our movement Is not bounded by the land question. The first Item of our pro gramme is the restoration of our National Parliament. Every action of the Irish members In Parliament and in Ireland is with a view to promoting that end. "I am aware that there are those -who can in no ns la ths existence of a Inde pendent party from Ireland in the British Parliament. Tho hostility, however, with which such a party Is regarded In England, is tbe best proof of its usefulness. If the Irish members were place-hunters or time servers, their presence in England might be nn lnjurv to the national cause, but they are absolutely Independent, quite incorrup tible, and ready as they have shown to take cj uyyuiiuuiiy or emoarrassing r-niunu and teaching her in her own Parliament that until she restores liberty to Ireland she must regard Ireland as her enemy. Tho action of the Irish members alone In offer ing strenuous and enntinunus oDDOsittbn to the Boer War, would Justify their ex istence, in my opinion; but from every point of view they have shown that by In dependent and uncompromising action they can keep Irish discontent and the claims of Ireland prominently before the world. By independent action the Irish party ones succeeded In bringing a measure of home rulo through the Ilouse of Commons. Party No LonBer Divided. "Parnell and Gladstone are dead; but ths principle for which they fought still lives, and It is the opinion of the vast majority of the Irish people, and all of their duly elected leaders that the time is coming when British political complications will restore the power of the elgnty-threo Irish rr embers at Westminster in such a. way as to make them, practically, tho masters of the situation. During the years of dissen tion following the overthrow of Mr. Par nell, the Irish party, I admit, was of little use In Parliament, because it was divided. It is now no longer divided. It acts as one man, with one hope, under one lender. It represents beyond all doubt the expressed opinion of the Irish people; and under these circumstances I claim for It the support of the patriotic Irish of America. "It Is not alone In the House of Commons that the members of our Darty work for Ireland. A largo number of them have been In prison for their action in Ireland, and some of them are In prison to-day. The whole strength of the Government Is di rected against us. We are denounced In the British press, and better proof than this I could hardly give that our party is doing effective work. Appeals for "World's Support. "I appeal with confidence, not alone to the Irish In America, but to tho whole American people, for Bupport for our move ment. The cause of Ireland is the moat ancient and honorable In the world. Thero Is nothing connected with our movement cf which any of Its friends need be ashamed. We have the support not alone of the masses of tho people, but we havj Also the good wishes of such patriotic and honor able ecclesiastics as the Archbishop of Dub lin and the Archbishop of Cashel. "I appal to all sections of Irishmen to believe me when I say that the national spirit of Ireland is as high as ever It was; that the people, did opportunity o.Ter, would gladly take the field for their rights. I ap peal, that the opinion of Ireland, under Lres-mt circumstances, shall t resoeitod. et there bo toleration amongst the Irish men. Let ur, all advance as for as we can and not stay back and away to find fault with each other's methods.

LEOPOLD MAY AVERT REVOLT. Belgian Ministry Refuses to Yield to Demand for Eevision. Brussels, April I Tho Government to day firmly declined "to yield on the question of suffrage revision, and unless King Leo pold should override the Ministry, which Is possible, there seems to be nothing to pro vent the development cf serious disorder. To-morrow the Socialist members of tha Chamber will present their demand for uni versal suffrage. This will inevitably be de feated, and it Is feared that this defeat will lead to trouble, particularly In tha Prov inces. J Tho authorities have taken extraordinary measures to avert disorders, and the whola quarter, comprising tha Chamber of Depu ties, the palace and the Ministries Is kept in complete Isolation from tho rest of tha city by cordons of the City Guard. A torrential storm, which began at S o'clock this evening, has cleared the streets. Tho strike In Brussels and Its environs is of a minor character, but in tha Indus trial districts It Is to-day more formidable than ever.

Attorney F. Lehmann argued for the library Board of Directors, of which he is president, and Manager William J. Atkinson of the Expo sition company represented the stockhold ers of that Institution. Mr. Atkinson stated that the title to the Exposition property is clouded on account of debt. Ho declared that the bill under consideration was meant to deprive the Ex position stockholders of their rights.
