Loxpox, Oct, 7.—~Charles Stewart Par
pell, the founder of the Irish Parliamen
tary party, died at 11:80 last night in Mrs,
Parnell's pretty little cottage at Brighton,
which had been made famous the world
CHARLES STEWART PARNELL.
over by the testimony in the recent O'Shea
divoree trial. Mr. Parnell had been con
fined to his bed since Friday last by a se
vere cold, but a fatal termination was not
anticipated until shortly before his death,
when rheumatism developed, causing a
rapid decline,
The news was many hours in reaching
this city. Mr. Parnell has always de
lighted in mystery and has appearved and
disappeared so erratically that the British
reporter long ago gave up trying to keep
track of his movements, It was supposed
that he was still enjoying the fag end of
the season at Brighton, driving out with
Mrs. Parnell in their pony carriage or
resting in absolute seclusion in their home.
Well knownas Mr. Parnell was politically,
he had no intimate associates and his
private life was s{nguhrly lonely. So that
London knew not of the death of the Irish
leader until morning broke at Brighton,
and none of the great dailies had any in
timation of it this morning. The city
was full long before noon of newsboys
velling “extras” of the afternoon papers
along the Strand, Oxford street and other
thoroughfares, and all other topics of con
versation, even the Russian demonstration
toward the Balkans, were forgotten iu the
new excitement.
LONDON—~LATER—-While traveling in
Ireland during the past two weeks Mr.
Parnell contracted a severe cold, but did
not seek medical advice, He returned to
Aldington last Friday by train and con
tracted a severe chill during the ride in an
unheated car., On his arrival he felt so
much prostrated that he went to bed at
once, and the hastily summoned physi
cians pronounced the case serions. Acute
rhenmatism set in, which finally resulted
in his death.
The death scene was most pathetic. No
one was preseut save the physicians and
members of the family. Mrs. Parnell held
the wasted frame of the sufferer as his
life ebbed peacefully away. Whenall was
over, Mrs. Parnell’s strength deserted her
and to-day she is utterly prostrated by the
ghock of Parnell’s death.
It was rumored at first that Parnell had
committed suicide, but there is no real
reason to believe that this was the case,
On the contrary the Irish leader felt that
he had everything to live for.
Parnell’s Carveer,
It was at Wicklow, near the Avon, a dis
trict famed by the poetry of Moore, that
Charles Stewart Parnell was born in 1846
His family were noted for generations be
fore himn, but Americans are most inter
ested in the fact that his mother was the
daughter of the celebrated United States
admiral, Charles Stewart. Parnell’s edu
cation was completed by a tour of the
United States, and his public career be
gan in 1874, when he held the office of
high sheriff of the county of Avondale.
Lord Beaconsfield was still the master
mind ip England when, in the following
year, Parnell was elected to” the House of
Commons for the county of Meath.
It was not however, until 1877 that he
became widely known by the the intro
duction of the Irish Church Amendment
Bill, the objeet of which was to facilitate
the purchase of their holdings by the Irish
tenantry of the disestablished Irish church,
the bill was defeated by a vote of 150 to
110. That same year witnessed the inang
uration of the work which ended in My,
Parnell’s supremacy of the Ivish party.
The discussion on the Prisons Bill opened
the way for the first real development of
what has been since known to the Irish as
the “active” policy, and to the English as
the policy of “obstruction.” The policy
was adopted frequently during that session
and it led toa serious collision between
Mr. Butt, the then leader of the Irish
party. Mr. Butt wrote and spoke against
obstruction, but to no avail, as Mr. Par
nell was elected President of the Home
Rule Confederation in 1878,
At the close of 1870 the widespread dis-
tress in Ireland caused by three success
ively bad harvests gave Paruell an oppor
‘ tunity for the new movement in reform of
the relations between the Irish tenant and
Jandlord., At a meeting in Irisbtown he
enunciated the doctrine of the party in
the words, " Keep a firm .rt: of your
homesteads.”
In the same yvear the Irish National Land
Teague was formed and Mr. Parnell was
elected its first president, Tts olijects
were declared by bim to be: “ First, to
bring about a reduction of rack reuts;

second, to facilitate the obtaluing of the
owuership of the soil by the ocouplers.”
Decemiber of 1879 saw Mr. Parpell on
his way to Awmerica to raise fudds for his
distressed followers and to bolg along the
new organization. Duriug his visit he
was invited to atldress the House of Rep
reseutatives at Washington, an honor
which had beeu Lestowed on but three be

tued to Parliament by three connties
and subsequently to the position of leader
of the Irish Party, In 1880 he organized
the Land Leugue, which rapidly grew to
be a most powerful of modern Irish move
ments,
Through the accusations of the Irish
Attorney General Mr, Parnell was brought
to trial in December, 1880, on charges of
sedition, but after niueteen days’ hearing
the jury disagreed.; At the opening of
Parliament in 1881 he and his followers
offered a flerce opposition to the Arms
bill. prolonged over seven weeks. During
that time he and three-quarters of the
Irish inembers were removed by the ser
geant-at-arms for obstruction., When the
bill passed Parnell at several wmeetings in
Ireland advocated testing the legality of
the act, and on October 18 he was arrested
anl confined in Kilmainham jail. The
government proclaimed the Land League
to be an illegal association, and Mr, Par
nell veplied with the “ No rent "’ manifesto,
In the following May Parnell was re
leased from jail and in guick succession
followed the resignation of Mr. Forster,
and Lord Cowper, the murders in Phoenix
Park and the virnlent debates on the
crimes bill. The freedom of Dublin was
voted him in 1882 In the same year he

T'he Land League was revised nnder the

1855 he was the inspiring leader of the
Ivish party and in 1885 on the dissolntion

voted on a general household suffrage. he
nominated every gandidate and returned
to Westminster with eighty-five colleng

Parnell was the idol of his people and
almost the dictator of the English House
of Commons, k
Those who knew Parnell in r&ent
years knew him as a man of strange re
serve of manner. Those who had known
him long were best able to judge by what
almost superhuman efforts he managed
to school himself to bear up under attack
of every kind, and brace himself against
ridicule, denunciation or half praise, to
steer his course straight ahead in troubled
sens and veering winds. For the poetic
element was strong in Mr. Parnell’'s na
ture. In the outset of his career he
winced and flushed under censure, and in
the mobile working of his face his emo
tions conld be read like the pages of a
book Bnt his will was iron, and he has
long seemed the most absolutely cool and
immovable man in the House of Commons,
ne matter what passions were raging
within him. His pale, set, bearded face
and slender frame have given no hint of
his feelings. Only when upon his feet,
pouring out a resistless flood of speech,
and in such circumstances as surrounded
his recent appearances in Ireland, did the
man's voleanic passions overcome him and
give a hint of his native impetuosity, Mr,
Parnell, with a crowbar leading a mid
night anssault upon the United Irveland
oflice in Dublin, is a historic figure of
unique coutrast to Mr, Parnell in the
House of Commons impassive as a statue.
What Justin McCarthy Says.
LoxDoN, Oct. T.—Justin McCarthy was
interviewed this morning. He said that in
his opinion the death of Parnell would
heal at once and forever the breach be
tween the Irish factions. The Home
Rulers would be drawn together in united
work for Ireland and Home Rule, since the
only question that kept them apart—the
question of the leadership—was removed,
and all reason for the separation, which
had paralyzed action and threatened the
success of the cause had ceased,
At a conference of the London League,

tidings of Parnell’s death, a message of
condolence was sent to Mrs. Parnell,

PROVIDENCE, R. I, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1891,
“SPIKER” MURPHY AGAIN
THE MURDERER QF WATERMAN
IRONS ATTEMFTS TO ESCAPE.
He Is Discovered While Sawing The Bars
of His Cell at Crauston With Tools
Supposed Te Have Been Hiddeu In
Bananas By Friends,
Dennis Murphy, better known as
“Spiker” )ln?»hy. ¢e life prisoner who
was convicted of the murder of Waterman
Irons in his store on High street about
five years ago, comes before the public
again by an attempt to escape from the
State prison at Cranston,
Murphy has always been an uneasy
prisouer, and recently Warden Viall has
had reason fo suspect that he contew
plated escaping.
Some days ago he tried to get another
prisoner into a scheme to escape, but the
man refused to take part and intimated to
the warden that there was wmotlnin‘( go
lnfi on. A man was put at the rear of the
cell to wateh Mur{:hy. and at b o'clock last
evening, when the meun marched to the
school-room he began to work on the bars
of his cell with a urall steel saw.
He had apparently done some work be
fore, but the enly safe time was when the
men were muarching to the school and the
noise of their feet prevented the guards
from luarh\nfi the noise of the saw.
Warden Viall said to-day that Murghy
was not a fellow of much mental calibre
but if he bad escaped iu thenight hewould
us soon have killed the officer as uot, as he
is of a relentless disposition.
When the discovery was made Murphy
was taken from his cell and stripped and
nsaw was found on his persou and another
in the cell. He was put in uolltur¥ con
finement and will need a few days of diet
i‘lrxr l'lo rom‘u:‘d hnll)n of m‘;t rules. Warden
all suys the “"boys’' often try to get out
but seldom succo«l.
The manner in which Murphy(got the
saws is not certainly known, but friends,
including his mother, had been allowed to
visit him and take him fruit, and itis
thought that the saws were carried iu in
bananas, which might easily be done.
Murphy llldelffl‘lu fellow, as his mur
der of ?oor old Irous shewed, and would

S'R JOHN POPE HENNESSY DEAD.
He Contested North Kilkenny with Par-

Loxpox, Oet. 6.—Bir John Pope Hen

North Kilkenny, died this morning. Sir
John, immediately after the divorce of
Mrs. O'Shea in Decembér, 1890, contested
the district of North Kilkenny against
Vincent Scully, who was Mr. Parnell’s
candidate. Sir John was backed by the
opponents of Parnell and won the election
by a majority of 1,147. This was the
greatest test of the strength of Parfell
and his party, and no doubt counted for
much in the series of disasters which have
overtaken the Irish leader since.

SKILL AND MUSCLE.
It took six rounds for Johnny Moran
to demonstrate his uuperloritg over Jack
McKenna w}‘eu they met in the ringof a
private club last night for a trophy valued
at $5O. Up to the finish their work had
not been very exciting. Each had been
waiting for the other to lead with the re
sult that neither had® done much of any
thing, except a few blows occasionally and
then stand off and measure the ‘‘other
fellow "’ again,
In McKenna's corner were John E. Sul
livan,the welter weight, Frank Lannon and
Jimmr Mc(,‘urdf'. .‘vqoun'l interests were
looked after br Jimmy Murru‘{. The men
were matched for tem rounds, the man
having the best of it at the end of‘that
time to win. Trere could be no draw,
After five rounds of sparring, which was
more in the nature of sizing :‘he oggouent
up than damage, Sullivan-and ) urra:‘y
seut their men in to finish and they did.
They came together with a clash, 3¥omn
swuug his left and McKenna got it right
on the side of the jaw, Down he went,
but was up again just as the timekeeper
was counting the fatal tenth second,
Moran was cool and clever and went in to
finish it. He forced McKenna into the
coruer, where the bi" gloves played alively
tattoo, and then McKenna went down
again; this time for good, and when the
ten seconds was counted he wus not in it
and Moran was declared the winner,
Previous to the 10-round-set-to Reardon
and Boyle gut. the pillows on for four
rounds in which ‘h'f mixed them up live
ly from the start and worked the mul;ienvo
up to fever heat. It was a pretty four
round go in which Doyle showed Kimm-lr
the suéer hitter because of his superior
weight, but Reardon more than evened it
up by his cleverness, and in the e{es of the
spectators had the Best of it on the whole,
u\thou h as a matter of fact there was lit
tle chofce.
Joe Henrieques of this city and Jack
Flatley of Pawtucket also went in for four
rounds, It was of the rug‘.(ed order from
the start, in which Flatley had the advan
tage of considerable weight, but Hen
ricques was the cleverer. Flat ley got a
littlc rough as the boxing progressed, and
in a clinch forced Joe to the ropes in a
couple of clinches, The latter started to
take the gloves off, but was prevailed upon
to go on, but when the thing was repeated
in the third round Referce Jesse {;‘;-uwn
assisted him to pull off the pillows and the
bout was stopped.
