Tho first Krand b ill or tho Irish Nationalist
Boclety was held In tho Casino on Saturday
ovcnln?. It was In a im-at measure compli
mentary to Colonel It. O. S. llurke, the Irish
uifltator, who was Invited to address the meet
Inif. At tho appointed hour for tho nddrc.s,
7510 p. mthcro were only a few persons present,
so It was decided to postpono tho uddress until
II o'clock. In the meanwhile visitors Kradually
arrived, nnd at tbo hour named thoro wus u
Proremor V. T. Ainos, huvlnif Introduced

ho occupied that night wns that of uttorney

with tho Hngll .h people. Tho English people,
especially tho ortlzaus, uro lovors or liberty. It
Is the Government who misrepresents Ireland,
England says that Ireland Is uuthilft, un.eru
pnlous, iHwsbkSOd of no sentiment or honor
and civilization, and unless she accepts ber
teaching humanity will record u great crime
ugnltist progress, and Ireland will be u blot
upon civilization. Unless she docs this Eng
land says that sho will bo compelled to report
to ulterior measures. What Is liberty ? What
Is progress ? Whutls civilization f IsKimlund

tues or tho loth century ? lias Ireland suerl

Englann says that Ireland Is chronlcully dis

thero Is not an ollleor of tbo Government who
cannot say bow any naitlcular person has

was done. Another Impcuchmciit he mado
against Mr. Gladstone was tho Land net. Ho
did not object to any tiling for tho amelioration
of the condition of his uurortnnata country,
but ho had seen so much uncertainty and cor
ruption under tho guib or England's friend
