At a meeting of the Executive Com
mittee of the Irish National League,
neld in Dublin, September 13th, Henry
Lanoucnere, Cashel Wright, J. T. Brun
ner and Robert Leak, all English, and
Members of Parliament, were elected as
members of the National League.
A magnificent demonstration took
place at Dublin September 14th in the
Rotunda. The round room was crowded
and overflow meetings were held. The
Lord Mayor presided. A deputation
irom tne English Home Rule Union
was received with the greatest enthu
siasm as it filed on to the platform

citizens of Dublin gladly accords its
warmest welcome to the deputation
from the English Home Rule Union, as
a pledge of the progress and practical
sympathy with which the cause of Ire
land is now obtaining among the peo
ple ot Great Britain." The motion was
seconded by Justin McCarthy, M. P.
and carried enthusiastically.

18th, said that it was impossible to deny
the gravity of the situation. The out

"Brien of the "United Ireland." Dillon
lid O'Brien would undoubtedly be con
emed a felon, and if so he would have
le sympathy of the whole civilized

illon continued, "think they can crush

Mexico and Guatemala.
v dispatch from the city of Mexico,
Member 22d says : There is a good deal
uneasiness in iolitical circles regarding
j ramored attempt of Guatemala to se
;e the support of the United States
ernment as against Mexico. It is
here that such a step would do much
to disturb the pleasant relations existing
between Mexico and the United States,
which at present are inducing heavy in
vestments of American capital here.
The case against Guatemala is this : In
sults have been offered to members of
the Mexican Legation there which it is
said have not been properly atoned for,
and while the Mexican Government is
not acting offensively toward Guatemala,
it is demanding just compensation for the
assaults on officers of the Legation. The
fight in Guatemala is largely a clerical
conflict and assumes the aspect of a re-
ligious war, and many politicians here
sav that thev do not believe the United
States will interfere in so delicate a mat
ter. German Politics.
It is asserted that the interview be
tween Bismarck and Kalnoky, Septem
ber 17th, means a new phase of the
Bulgarian question. It means a check
on Russian intervention, the neutrality
of Europe toward Prince Ferdinand leav
ing him to his own resources, to sink or
swim, and freedom of action for the Bul
garians, short of anarchy or troubling the
peace of neighboring States. Emperor
William and the Prince and Princess
William, Prince Frederick, Prince Leo
pold and General Von Moltke leave Stet
tin to-day and arrive in Berlin this even
ing. The Emperor's sojourn in Stettin
was an unqualified success, the report of
the fainting fit being erroneous. The re
turn of the Imperial party to Berlin fin
ally disposes of the reports that the
Emperor would have an interview with
the Czar. The success of the German
candidates at the elections for members
of the Bohemian Diet places the Czech
majority face to face with a compact body
of German deputies, armed with a spe
cial mandate to insist on the division of
Bohemia into two administrative dis-
tricts, in accordance with differences in
religion and language.
General Bon lander.
General Boulanger, in an address to
the officers of his command after the
mune uvers by his corps at Clermont Fer-
rand, September 18th, strongly urgedthe
necessity of giving wider exercise of the
offensive tactics which were proper to the
trench army. He concluded his re
marks as follows : " We have to-day more
need than ever of the qualities of a war
rior. No, the hour has not yet struck for
the disarmament of the people of all Eu
rope. It is madness to believe it and a
crime to say it, for it points to peace at
an' price, as the goal to which our coun
try should aspire, and our eneniies, who
often appraise us at our real value better
tnan we do ourselves, know well that we
have not got as far as that. More than
that, we must continue to work. It is
