Irishmen Show Their
Love for America.
J. J. Clancy, M.P., The Call's Special
Correspondent in Ireland, Gives
a Review of Recent
Events There.
Special Corr«apond«no* of Th« Call.
LONDON, May U.— The detailed ac
counta of Admiral Dewey's great vlo
tory at Manila, which appeared in the
Irish papers early in the week, were, It
need hardly be Bald, read with the most
Intense eagerness and the greatest de
light In Dublin and throughout the rest
of Ireland. The Irish people had been
almost feverishly waiting for a con
firmation of the first telegraphic an-
nouncement of the victor}', the more so
as It seemed to be unaccountably de
layed, and when at last it came it was
a relief and a source of joy. The same
may be said of the great majority of
the Irishmen in London and England.
Another circumstance which has
caused much satisfaction among
Irish Catholics, who, of course, consti
tute the great majority of the popula
tion of Ireland, is the declaration of the
Catholic Bishops of America. The or
gan of the independent or Parnellite
party, the Irish Daily Independent, de
voted a day or two ago a si ar
ticle to the subject, and made most ef
fective use of the declaration against
that very small minority who, because
Spain is a Catholic country', sympa
thize with her on that account, for
getting that there are nearly as many
Catholics in America as in Spain and
more than twice as many Irish Catho
lics as there are In Ireland itself. Irish
men are now looking with the most in
tense anxiety to the battle which ap
pears to be impending in the Atlantic,
and the most fervent hopes are enter
tained that not only the American fleet
may triumph, but so decidedly that a
Epeedy end may be put to the war.
We have been all the week engaged
in the House of Commons in a debate
on the clauses of the local government
bill for Ireland, but the debate has, for
the greater part, been concerned so
much with details that American read
ers would scarcely be obliged to me for
dwelling on its various points in suc
cession. One subject, however, of gen
eral Interest came under discussion—
that of the bribe held out to the Un
ionist or Tory majority in Ireland to
accept the measure and make the best
•if it. That bribe, as I have explained
before, is the payment out of the im
perial grant of £730,000 a year to Ire
iif the local rates, to which the
landlords are at present liable. This
payment was opposed by the English
Liberals and by one Irish member — Mr.
Michael Davttt. Both opposed it for the
same reason — namely, that the land
lords deserved and ought to get noth
ing. Mr. Davitt, of coarse, is perfectly
sincere. He is the son of an evicted
tenant; he knows what the unrestricted
power of landlordism accomplished in
the past, and he has vowed everlasting
vengeance against the whole class. It
may be doubted whether the same can
be said of the English Liberals. They,
In fact, are acting in this matter the
part of the dog in the manger. They
have not been able to do anything for
Ireland in the shape of reform them
selves, and they would, if possible, pre
vent their British rivals from doing
anything either. The answer to both
was at once given, and It was conclu
It was that the relief to the landlords
was an essential condition of the con
cession of local self-government, and
that, that being so, the condition must
be accepted. The truth is, that the
price paid for this boon and its certain
consequences Is a small one after all.
Those consequences are even more im
portant than the measure itself, for it
will certainly lead to home rule in the
larger sense. The mere introduction of
the bill has already alienated from the
present government almost every sup
porter of theirs In Ireland, and here in
the House of Commons I really believe
that the opinion entertained by Irish
Unionist members is that, after this
bill has passed into law, home rule can
hardly have any terrors for the Irish
Last night there was a debate in the
Commons on the subject of the distress
In the west of Ireland, and at one point
It appeared likely to lead to a "scene."
The Chief Secretary's unhappy "cham
pagne" speech was the cause. In a
former letter I explained all about that
somewhat callous deliverance, and told
how It had aroused feeling in Ireland.
The curio-us thing is that it seemed to
have aroused somewhat similar feel-
Ings in England among the political
supporters of Mr. Balfour, and yester
day one of them — Major Raseh, a high
anil dry Tory — openly assailed the
Chief Secretary. The latter was pale
with rage. He admitted, however, that
he had made a mistake. He defended
what he had said as strictly true and
as meaning nothing mere than that
there were some things which the Gov
ernment could not do for the distressed
people; but he added that he ought to
have known that the power and habit
of" misconstruction were great, and that
he ought, accordingly, to have avoided
the use of equivocal expressions. This,
no doubt, was a plausible excuse; but,
after .ill, the spirit which dictated such
a raying as that the Government could
hardly be expected to supply the peo
ple of the '•■ ■ • ■-■ ■; Of Ireland with cham
pagne can hardly be called sympa
thetic. Moreover, while he showed that
r the accounts of the distress in
particular cases were exaggerated, Mr.
Balfour admitted that the distress in
many parts of Western and Southern
Ireland was very acute. Indeed, he j
went further, for he admitted that !
there were many cases in which the ]
Government ought to and would have
given relief but that outside charity
had Intervened and saved him the ne
cessity. This was virtually a confes
sion of deliberate neglect of duty, for
it showed that, instead of doing his
duty, he waited until he had seen
whether others who were not respon
sible would do his business for him.
The worst of it from his point of view j
to that, according to his own further
admission, he would have had no diffi
culty in obtaining from the treasury
any money for the relief of distress for
which he had chosen to ask.
A very interesting reunion of Irish
men took place in London this week,
of which no account, by the way, has
appeared In the papers. I refer to a
dinner In the Grand Hotel of Trinity
College (Dublin) men In England. Mr.

sponded to the toast of "The Quests of
the Evening," and, without trenching
either on politics or religion, made
some significant allusions which evoked
a response, rather notable for such an
assembly. It being well known that he
was both a Catholic and a Nationalist,
he took occasion to say that Irish
Catholics could have no hostility to the
great Irish Protestant University, see
ing that it had opened its doors to
Catholics nearl- three-quarters of a
century before any English university
had taken that ::tep, and that it had
produced such Nationalists as Grattan,
Robert Emmet and Wolfe Tone. It
might be thought that the mention of
such names would have looked a mani
festation of hostile feeling or at least
would have been received in chilling
silence by a gathering, most of whom
belonged to the Irish University; but
the fact is that it was met with a burst
of hearty cheering, which largely came
from the clerical element to which I
have referred. It would be easy, in
deed, to exaggerate the significance of
such an incident, but it is not going too
far to say that, like many other things,
it indicates the gradual birth of a new
state of things in Ireland. Classes and
parties are drawing together there
slowly but surely, which have long
been separated; and, in my opinion, it
is impossible to exaggerate the extent
to which that change may go within
the next few years or the consequences
by which it may be attended.
The career of Mr. Carson, to whom I
have just referred, is worth a word or
two. A few years ago he was but
what is called a rising Junior at the
Irish bar, and seemed likely to follow
the usual path trodden by the average
Irish barrister who is to any extent
successful. He was taken up by Mr.
Arthur Balfour when the latter became
Chief Secretary, and figured largely as
prosecutor for the Government in the
Coercion Courts. He became a Queen's
