This time the proposition comes from a ?
Democratic source, from no less a person 1
than the Auditor. But it makes no dif- t
ference who suggests it. The question is n
whether we ought to go on as we have |
been going. If Kejmhlicans have insisted J;
that the irreducible school fund should bo ?
held sacred; that is because it is so nomi- 1
sated in the bond. It is the law. The com- 6
plaints are based on the flagrant disregard t
o( the fundamental law. Disregard of the
Constitution and amendment of the Con- (
dilution arc quite different things. To j
father money for a specific purpose under j
a Constitutional guarantee and then divert .
it to other uses is not good ad ministration. 1

New Yoiik, Feb. 2.?At twelve minutes
iftcr live this afternoon Jeremiah O'Donoan
Kossn, the "Irish Dynamiter," so
ailed, was shot by a woman on Chambers
trect near Broadway. At that hour the
troota wore full of people homeward

i shoot until ahe emptied the five chamered
revolver. Only the first shot took
fleet. ,
City Marshal James McAuley was presnt
at the time and breaking through the
rowd tliat had collected, even before the
liooting was over, seized the woman, who
till held the smoking pistol in her hand
nd told her she was under arrest. Tiie
roman offered no remonstrance, butald
wed herself to be taken through the mass
f citizens and to City Hall Station.
(.Jeorge W. Barlow, merchant, 140 Reade
treet, and Peter Y. Everett, formerly a
tarter, who witnessed the shooting, acompainicd
the captor and captive to the
tation, saying they wouUl be witnesses.
WALKED TO TIIKHOSl'ITAL.
When the woman had ceased firing
>'Donovan roso to his feet and made an
flbrt to find his way back to bis office,
I'hich he had just left. He said: "lam
hot," trying to place his hand on his back
indcr his shoulder blade. After a few
tops somebody in the crowd suggested
hat he should go to the Chambers street
lospital. A couple oi men lent thfiir
mis and O'Douovan did as suggested and
lireuled his ateps toward the hospital,
ie walked all the way there, a distance of
learly a quarter of a mile. He bled eoniderablyon
the way. Once in tho hospital
he was undressed and examined
>y Ur. J)ennison. It was found thH hulethad
entered his back directly below
he left shoulder blade. The doctor prolounced
tho wound not of a dangerous
harocterand began to probe for tho ball.
^ great crowd had followed the woundou
nan down tho street, and blocked the
ouilway in frontof the Hospital after tho
loor was locked behind llossa and his esort.
TUP. WOMAN ARUKSTEO.
Meanwhile the woman had been taken
o tho station house with another crowd
allowing her. She was placed before
lergeant Kass' deck. Sho was a goodookhlg
woman, dressed neatly in plain
lark clothing, and woro eyeglasses. She
ippcared like a school teacher, and
md an intellectual fare. Her manjer
was entirely eoraposcd, and sho
inswered some of the questions put her
jroinptly and without -embarrassment.
Do others she simply shook her head and
imiled with a look which said, "I shall
>nly answer questions I know you have a
ight to ask."
McAuley handed the pistol, a small
yilibre, to the Sergeant and said ho had
welt the prisoner shoot tho man on Chambers
street. Volunteer witnesses assented
o the stated fact of the shooting.
A citizen here asked, "Do, you know
tho man yon shot?"
"Yes/*?replied tho prisnnoir, coolly,
svith an English accent, "I shot O'Donoran
Rosaa."
TIIK FAill PHWONKR.
Further questioning by tho Sergent elided
the statement that the prisoner's name
ivas Yseult Dudley, age 25; that sho
tvas a nurse and marriod, and that she
lived at No. (50, Clinton Place. She was
isked why she shot O'Donovan and how
long she had been in Ainorica and other
luestion8, to which she made no answer.
After her pedigree had been taken she
was escourted to tho rear room and the
jrowd slowly dispersed.
As tliero are no accommodations for
nriannnrri in fchn Citv Hull fltution. Mrs.
Dudley was removed to tho Oak Street
itati'in and thore placed in a cell. Hor entire
demeanor was thatofa rational person,
mil a cool bended one at that.

same ward with Captain Pliolan, who wa?
stabbed by Hicbard Short, over three
weeks ago. O'Donovan was within eight
beds of l'liolan.
iiossa's wouxd.
Tho examination of the wound by I)r.
Kirby showed the bullet had penotrated
the back about half anincli'abovo the left
shoulder blade. Tho ball ranged upward
and inward toward the spinal column, but
did not touch the vertebne. The bullet
Is evidently lodged in tho muscles of the
back, and beyond a slight shock Jtossa lias
suffered little.
It was at one time [eared the bullet had
penetrated tho lung, but as tho wounded
man has expectorated no blood this was
afterwards pronounced impossible. Had
tho spinal column been injured there
would have beon signs of paralysis, but
none appeared. The doctova probed unsuccessfully
for the bullet. They concluded
no largo blood vessel was injured
and as O'Donovan is a fleshy, muscular
man, of robust constitution there was no
danger to be apprehended. The doctors
will probe again lor the bullet to-morrow
morning.
Some time after his admission to tho
hospital ltosnu was removed to another
ward. Here he said ho thought his condition
wasserious enough to warrant 1dm
in making an ante-mortem statement and
tho coroner was sent for. When that olllcial
arrived O'Donovan made tho following
statement:

Itossa In tho Chambers street hospital
made tho following statement to Coroner
Kennedy: "Saturday, January31,about 4
r. ii? I received a letter at iuy office,Xo. 1!

writing and was delivered by a messenger
boy. Tho note stated a lady wished to

in the Irish cause and desired
to assist. She did nut care] to go to my

nble to givo considerably money if any

call Monday, February 2d, at 4 o'clock.
To-day she sent another message to my
office and I went to tho same telegraph
office, atfd there I met the lady. She
showed 1110 a paper which I was to sign.
Slio then suggested we go to soipe place.

shots at me. One of the balls entered my

Soon after making this statement Rossti
rested easier, and said he wus hopeful ol
pulling through all right.

of the shooting, smiled grimly,

of the Chambers Street Hospital was
visited by a largo number of Rossa'e
friends to-night, all of them determined
looking chaps, and they gathered in
groups of twos and threes aud discussed
fn whispers the attempted assassination of
the "Arch Dynamiter."
John ltoche, whosedynamito operations
have been continad to speeches in the
Fourth ward, oyed each visitor to the institution
and from time to time disappeared
to talk with parties on the outside.
Algornon Sullivan, public administrator,
had read the news iu the extras and
dropped in to see if the story was true
He was not permitted to see llossa and
vanished shortly after.
W. J. iiurkett, a proraint dynamiter,
shouted: "You can kill llossa but you
can't kill-the idea."
WHAT J108SA SAYS.
To a reporter itossa said: "It was a
premeditated affair, and this woman was
simply the engine by which the bloody
work was accomplished. She had no private
revenge to gratify; no relative of heis
has been injured in Kiigli-h explosions.
It ia'tlie work of the Kugjish Government,
whose policy always has been to assassinate
men they could not otherwise reach.
Sho is the Agent of the JJridsh Minister or
somebody else. This woman (Mine to
me aud said she was Irish, but that her
husband did not sympathize with the
cause of-Ireland. She was rabid in her
views on dynamite. She said the London
explosions were no good and wanted a
horrible sacrifice of life to strike terror to
the hearts of Ireland's enemies. I
told her I was not ei>gaged in that
business and I received no inonoy for
such purposes, but only help for the Irish
cause. She reiterated that thousands of
lives should be sacrificed in London.
I had been to see my printer at 4
o'clock, when I started to meet her. She
wanted me to sign a receipt for money.
Thft rrpfiint contained the word "dvna
mite" and I declined. I put the paper in
ray pocket and walked out with her. She
is nothing more or less than the ugent of
the British government employed to assassinate
me.
Joyce's jaw.
Patrick Joyce, the trusted lieutenant of
Rossa, came to his chief in tho hospital
shortly after the shooting. Rossa turned
overall his papers to Joyco and among
them were letters from Mrs. Dudley.
Joyce was lond in his denunciation of the
cowardly attempt to slaughter the great
dynamiter and charged it was "English
work." Of courso it was
the outcome of a conspiracy
on the part of England to rid tho world of
Itossa, whom she dreads and fears. There
is no question but what the agents of
England in New York know all about the
plot, and tho woman was the tool selected
to carry it into execution. They selected
a woman for-the deed because they had
not a man among them brave enough to
attack him. Ho has received scores
of threatening letters, but paid no
attention to them. lie is not
deait and England will find it out to her
sorrow soon enough. Joyce wont to Oak
street station to sco if ho could identify
Mrs. Dudley as tho English woman who
had been befriended by Itossa about a
year ago. Ho was refused admission to
uer, but when ho heard her description
he coneludod it did not tally with that of
the other woman.
Rossa's admirers wore greatly relieved
when they found his recovery was regarded
as quite certain.
Walker J. Elliott and Patrick Joyco
went to Brooklyn and broke the tidings of
tho attempted assassination to his wife.
She received the tidings calmly and immediately
started for New York and reached
the hospital at 10 o'clock, when she was
admitted to her husband's bedside.
mrs. dudley's career.
About 0 o'clock to-night Mrs. Dudley
asked about the condition of Hossa and
soomed aorry when gtie nenru no was still
alive. A number ot persons allied to sco
hor, but alio positively refused to bo interviewed
by any one. She discarded her
spectacles, 'which, according to Joyce,'
wore used as a disguise. Sire. Dudley's
career in Sow York is thus given;

"Sly relerenco is Dr. Thomas, whom
everybody knows," was the reply, and
then sho added, "I am a professional
nurso and widow and desire to stay here
until I secure an engagement."
In telling the story of her acquaintance
Willi Sire. Dudley Sirs. Brown said: ".She
impressed uie so favorably that I told her
she might remain in the liouso if she would
room with two other young ladles. This
she consented to do. Her only luggage
was a valise, which she never unpacked,
because, as she one dav said, sho might
be called suddenly to attend to some patient.
"Did she referatany timo while horo to
her past domestic relations?"
"She told me sho had been married and
had two children, but that hor husband
and children were dead. Hoi
father, sho onco remarked, had been
engaged In tho British cavalry service.
She had acted as a trained nurse in the
hospitals In London and Paris, and she
said she had diplomas from Institutions ol
that kind, but I never examined them.
A THOROUGHLY AOCOUPI.MUEU WOMAN.
Sho showod them to some of ladles ir
the house. Sho was a thoroughly accord
pllshed woman, and her manner and
speech betoken a thoroughbred En
glishwoman ot keen mind and
bright perceptions. Sho was ar
intensely patriotic little lady, and cutting
at timoiwhcn speaking of those who seem
odtobe makingwaron her people. Sho wai
near-sighted. In telling me of her wort
abroad sho said sho much moro enjoyo<
hospital work abroad than the nuraini
she had been doing here. She said shi
had received $25 per wock abroad, whlcl
I know is often paid to a trained ntirao.'
"What is thp;h latory of tho niovuraenti

asked Mrs. Brown.

A. Foran is not the author of tlio "Money- ^

by Mr. Poland. Solicitor of the

prisoner's claim of entire innocence.
CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE.
[r. Poland went on to state that Cungbam
had been noticed loitering in
vicinity of the tower some time prcis
to the explosion, and all the facts in
possession of the police tended to
ctly connect him with the crime. The
jecution continued, stating that the
.^ligation of tho police and tho examinn
of experts went to show that the
losive used was similar to that used in
previous explosions at London Bridge,
ring Cross and other places. "The
erial used was undoubtedly dyna-l
9," said Mr. Poland, "and its explosion
most ingeniously arrived."
ouusel went on to describo tho ma
lery used in the exploding contrtv

iguition thereof. Mr. Poland claimed
i it was self-evident from the testily
adduced that the prisoner was, at
t, liable under the Explosive act, aud
irted that ho hoped to produce twice

[r. Poland then produced a plan of the

oland's notitlcation to the Conrt that
Government reserved the privilege of

to high treason, so that the result ol
viction might be execution instead of

ontinulng his opening address, the
eitor for the Treasury said that Cuiigham
was 22 years of age. By occupai
he was a dock laborer. He was not
le in the work causing the explosion at
Tower, but in league with otiters whom
Government hoped soon to have in

efore closing his address Mr. Poland
I lie desired to call particular attention
tieconductof Cunningham on the day of
explosion. Within four minutes after
oxplosion tho Tower gates wero closed
I every visitor then within the walls
i made a prisoner. This matter has
n carolully investigated and the stateit
as to the time of the closing of the
is is accurate, nut two persona una
?ed out from the grouuds after the exlion.
These were a lady and gentleii.
They were not in tile buildings at
time of the explosion, hut on their
I towards one of tlie gates. Among
se detained by the shutting of the
ss, was Cunningham. The identity of
lady and gentleman who had sucilcd
in passing out had been traced and
, as ascertained that they were respecle
people and entirely innocent of any
sibiu connection with the prisoner or
nd?. When the nature of tho explosion
I lieen ascertained every person deled
in the Tower was subjected to an
imination. With the exception of the
?ner nil gave a good account of them,-cs,
submitting willingly to an exiuniiau
and answering the questions put to

'he prisoner, Foland thought, was found

icn his turn came for examination liis

olutely unable toglvoa straightforward
wcr to any question. This led to him

?clii?ing.
HIS CONTRADICTIONS.

account of himself. When nsltcd

the explosion. Detectives wen then
assigned to banting up the prisoner's his
tory and almost every step they took
tended to the conviction of the prisoner in
. reality ns one of the principal criminals in
that day's dynamite outrage. Ho lived
under one name in Scarboro street, and
i- another in Prcscott street, swore he had
nevor possessed a brown trunk of American
make and yet a cabman who drove .
him from the Broad street station to the ;
I'rescott street lodgings swore this trunk ,
was a part of the prisonous luggage on .
this journey, and the landlady at those :
lodgings would testify that the samo
' trunk was part ot his room furniture. ,
e missing itiKUSCiiirr. 1
: Another point dwelt upon by Foland i
- was the fact that 110 writing was found In <
? the lodging occupied by him although he ,
3 did much writing. He had himself care- <
1 fully removed every traco of his correspou- 1
s dence, as in the memorandum books in ?
1 his effects overy pnge that had borno writ- J
ing was found carefully torn out. The 1
I Solicitor then proceeded to describe other J
J evidence found agoinBthiui. Among this I
1 was a detonater, which Poland proceeded "
to explain to the Court. This foil out of ,
' a sack belonging to tlio prisoner while the ;
' police wore examining his luggage. }
Col. Majendi, chief inspector of oxplo- !j
1 sives, had examined this detonator and *
' pronounced it a machine used in the ex- ?
plosion of dynamite. The detonator was '
1 of the kind used to produce the concus
sion necessary to explode dynamite and
was itself operated by means ot a fuse.
Resuming a review of the prisoners' '
conduct while in the city of London,
so far as the government detec- "
tives had been ablo to trace it out,
Poland said it was January 14Ui last,
tbiit Cunningham moved to scarboro street
from lo<Iglngs iu I'rescott street. Tile
Scarboro street lodgings were quite near "
to the ones deserted. The brown trunk '
which bad been moved from Broad street
station to the I'rescott Btrcet house and .
which disappeared from Laninr l'lace before
the prisoner's removal thence, was
taken away duringtho temporary absence "J
of tlio Drisoner from th? liniiRA.
^
TIIK HAIR TUVXK. er
Just before going out Cunningham told la
the landlady the brown trunk belonged to w
a friend who might call for it, but if ho JJJj
called for it during the prisoner's absence is
to ask him to remain if convenient until to
his return, as lie would not bo goue long, in
A stranger called and departed, but the fai
landlady did not notice whether he took
the trunk. Subsequently she observed go
the truuk was gone; that a box of similar R(
shape and siste and color had been substi- Mi
tuted for it in the prisoner's room. The St!
detectives had traced this brown box and be
found it had been purchased in Whitechapel
in the vicinity of the Prescott lodgirgs
the same day the prisoner Itfft the n?
message concerning the trunk with the
landlady and presumably by the prisoner '
for the very purpose of substitution. in
In the Prescott gireet house, continued
Poland, Cunningham gave his name oh t
Gilbert. He tola the landlady he was by
occupation a commercial traveler. When
ha moved to the Scarhoro street lodgings at
ho gave his name as Ualton. To the landlady
here ho gavo his occupation as that Is!
of a grocery clerk, but he told her ho did no
not like the work and was seeking other
employment.
When the examination concluded the cij
crowd that pressed around the building
numbered many thousands. Tho adjoining
housetops and every window in the b
neighborhood were crowded with people .
curious to catach a glimpse ol Cunning.
During tho progress of tho van, which
conveyed the prisoner back to Clerken- '
well prison, the streeta along tho route J.
were lined with files of special police and
fairly swarmed with detectives. ^

A Supposition That Wolsolejr JIoh Kept Hack

London*,' February 3.?Tho victories in ^
the Soudan have lolt an unpleasant taste hi

ed so much even to his proverbial aood bi
tortunc. me losses are tieeraeil extreme* in

although no General owes more of bis tli
fame to the newspapers, and tbo censor- jj
ship ho has always maintained has been jy.

was given by the failure of Mr. Cameron, j?
the dead correspondent of the Standard.
to get his message through. This excited ?j)
remark, us he was known to be a corrc- aI
spondent that was never beaten. U]
It has now been made plain that the J
reason of his failure was that he was too ge
plain-spoken, a critic to bo acceptable at e>
headquarters. Several newspapeis have
since complained that their correspond- w
ents have been treated similarly. On tbe a
head of this comes the fact that Wolseley, g|
