' Don't the people ever rest?" ) 4 "A lelsurelv way of doing things Is characteristic of all European countries. -but It Is more noticeable in Ireland than anywhere else. If a Celt can earn enough in six months to support himself for a year he sees no use in worrying from June to January." "An Irishman doesn't look upon work as really important. He would quit work any time to admire the beauty of the sunset. An Englishman never thinks of the sunset, and the American probably refuses to." . "You hato a line country In America, but we wouldn't trade the green grasses of Ireland for anything you hate." "Lack of wealth never worried a real Irishman. He argues that there Is no use in accumulating money, for he knows that it isn't really his and he will 4 have to- leave it some time, anyhow." "The discourtesy of men in trams (street cars) is a discredit to your coun- try. Not until v.e arrived in New York did we ever see men deprive women of seats In the public carrying cars." l "The tost quality in an Irishman, peasant or lord, is his politeness. If an Irishman's shoulders 'were weighted, down with a trunk he would stand aside , for a woman, and If ho knew her he'would tip his hat, even though the gesture 4v broke his back." : "Religion doesn't figure In Ireland's cause.

The journey from Quecnstown to Stl Louis was marked with the greatest inter est. Most of the members of the party had never been outside of Ireland. They confessed to knowing that the rest of the world wa3 much larger than Ireland, but they jiever dreamed that the Atlantic Ocean was so broad, and that the distance between New York and St. Louis was more than LOCO "miles.

Most all of the girls are prettv and every feminine member of the party has those glowing red cheeks that would make her conspicuous if nothing else would. Like their English brethren, the Irish participants suffered Journalistic "tor tures" In New York, and when one writer referred to the girls as colleens, who said "upon my soul" and other familiar phrases, the aforesaid colleens stood on their dignity and refused to be inter viewed. Miss Dillon has been a member of the Dublin Theater company for three years. She was advised to go on the stage by the English Hress, Ellen Terry, and la proud of this, because Miss Terry, she says, advises most girls to stay away from the footlights.

He left here this morning nt 10 o'clock with his suite over the naltlmore'and Ohio Railroad, bound, for tiro World's Fair City. He departed from Washington Impressed with the beauties of the cr.ipltal. satisfied with all that he has seen here and all that bar, been done in his honor, and expectant of the pleasures of hl entertainment and the sights to be seen at the International Exposition. The Prince appears to be an easy-going Chinee gentleman, mid li flnd3 It a Ilt t bit dimcult to keep abreast of Ameri can iWtUItics. "Wi. Amfrlrnn npcnle." he Said through Mr. Wong Kal Kah tn-day, "trav el at a vr fast pace. What no you can it? Ah. yes the strenuous life." "It has been hard, though very pleas ant, for rr.o to keep up with the plans for my entertainment. I want you to sav that I look with most especial and tho mo3t fellcit.is pleasure ,to the St. Louis Exposition." ) At the station to see the Prince awsy was thn "chlnwc Minister. Sir Chentung Uang-Cheng. and the entire legation staff. They escorted the scton of royalty Into his car. Having done'this, they re paired to the platform, where they Uned up, a gala company, and waited in a semi mllitaxy formation for the train to roll out of the station. As it did so they gave the representative of their imperial mas ter the Chinese salute, which is due his high position. PRINCE'S PLAN8. The Prince will arrive In SC-LooIs at 1 o'clock to-morrow. Present plans In clude a stay of a month. After that date his movements are. not fully decided, but It la probable that ho will remain in America for a longer time, visiting New York, Boston and other places of Im portance and Interest. As Is generally the case among the Chi nese of the younger generation who come to this country, the Prince is here en deavoring to educate himself in modern progress and American Institutions, and deprecates very decidedly the American tendency to regard his peacock feather with three eyes, his yellow jacket and his other very picturesque accessories as a sort of highly diverting side show. But he takes the natural curiosity of our citizens very good nkturedly, and last night demonstrated that he can enjoy a real show with all the gusto of a Western audience. With his party, he occupied two boxes at the Columbia Theater and witnessed "The Serenade," as produced by the Bostonians. He adopted our method of clapping his hands loudly by way of appreciating the absurd antics of Mr. Barnabee. To the observer It was clear that ho had Mr. Wong translate to him the theme of the opera and the various Jokes ok they occurred. Some of the quips evi dently appealed to his Oriental sense of humor, though others and It Is not sur prisingevoked from him only a blank expression of amazement. ST. LOUIS WILL WELCOME CROWN PRINCE OF CHINA. Prince Pu Lun. China's Imperial Com missioner to the World's Fair, a nephew of tht Chinese Emperor and tho Crown Prlnce'of the Celestial kingdom, will ar rive, In St. Louis at 1 o'clock this after noon.

The Chinese building Is an exact repro duction of a part of the Prince's Imperial home in Pekln, and is one of the oddest and prettiest buildings on the World's Fair grounds.

THE DEMOCRATS REMAIN FIRM Gorman Says Session Will Be Talked Away if President In sists, and Party Leaders Go to the White House. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Washington, April 27. President Roose velt's absolute and stlffnccked determina tion that the Senate act Immediately upon the appointment of Doctor W. D. Crum, a negro, as Collector of the Customs at Charleston, S. C, provoked a wild scene in the United States Senate during exec utive session this afternoon and to-night, and has earned for him again the Ire of the more deliberate and conservative Re publican Senators. Under the presidential threat to call an extra session of the Sen ate to consider this matter, it was taken up to-day. The debate conUnucd until 9:15 to-night without any action being taken. Democrats took an emphatic position. Senator Gorman, the minority leader, de claring that this appointment had become an acute issue in the South, and that to air it at this time would cause such bitter enmities on both sides that the conse quences could not be foretold. He said that the Democrats would fight Drum's confirmation to the last ditch, would talk the session out indefinitely; in short, would never consent to Roosevelt's arbitrary pro gramme. The result was that the Republicans re treated from their position and voted that the question go over until the short es slon. To-night, as soon as they could get away from the Senate, and while the ses sion was still In progress. Senators Spooner, Aldrich and Allison went to the White House. There they conferred with the insistent author of all the disturbance. They used their every argument to In duce him to admit the error of his posi tion. The-result of their activities is not posi tively known to-night, though the pres entation of the case by so Influential a trio is expected to influence even so posi tive a personage as Mr. Roosevelt. Still, his attitude is known to be very definite with reference to Crum. The report of an extra session was cir culated late this afternoon with all the confidence of a final announcement. Ac cordingly the President may yet undertake to force the Senate into obedience. The Crum appointment has dragged along from one session to another because of the Implacable opposition of Senator Tillman. The Senate refused to confirm at the special session last November. The President, however, renamed him, and Crum Is now executing the functions of his pjiltion. though without pay.'

"The monetary necessities of France, the commercial necessities of s the United States and the Internecine troubles due to foreign domin s ion over the Mississippi BIrer led to the acquisition of that wonderful s territory known as the Louisiana Purchase. s "A little more than a century has passed eince the ratification of the treaty between tho United States and France. It was an event of s transcendant Importance, and Is to be fittingly commemorated on Sat s urday next In the city'of St. Louis, when the gates of the great 6ou- Isiana Purchase Exposition are to be formally opened. s "It should be a day of general thanksgiving and praise that the wisdom of our forefathers made It possible to add so mightily to the sr wealth, the power and the glory of our beloved country. 4 "I, therefore, ask all Missourians, so far as may be practicable, to abstain from their usual avocations on Saturday; April 30,-1004, In s grateful recognition of the masterful statesmanship of Thomas Jeffer- son which gave this priceless heritage to the American people."

' St. Petersburg. April 27. An account given here of the movements of the cav alry, under Major General Mistcbenko. the commander of the Western Cossack Brigade, while not officially confirmed, is accepted as trustworthy. It follows: General Mlstcbenko's Cossacks arrived at Song-Chon. Northeast Korea, and. aft er leaving that place, turned north along the Seoul-Pekln route and occupied Anju. ' Not a shot was fired, the Japanese and Koreans withdrawing. The unexpected appearance of Cossacks In the rear of the Japanese force near the Yalu caused a panic among the Japanese troops proceeding toward the Yalu-from Ping-Yang and they, consequently, re treated. The Japanese troops at Pak-Chon. Ku-Song. Ka-San and Chong-Ju did not attempt to stop the Cossacks, but moved toward the northwest by forced marches. KUROPATKIN'S DEFENSES, ' HE BELIEVES, MAY HOLD JAPS LONG IN CHECK. Chicago, April 27. A special to the Dally News from Niuchwang says: "If official Russian advices from Unkden can be relied on. General Kuropatkln's de ployment Is so far advanced that it covers the vefy lines the Japanese purpose to occupy. "Should the Japanese succeed in. driving the Russians north, tho Muscovite line of defense will extend from Niuchwang to Llao-Yang and from Llao-Yang to the Yalu River. The Russian Generals pro fess confidence that the Japanese can make no headway by frontal attacks, while the Russians can cope with the widest flanking operations the Mikado's men are likely to undertake. "When these operations begin, say the Muscovites, Kuropatkln's counterstrokes will bring down the Japanese scheme of offense like a. house of cards. The con tinued delay on the part of the enemy la a great surprise to the Russians." a -ft x. i 61 A 'H .- J " V. I .. t . ..
