The General awoke at 1:15 this morn
ing, and his mind was entirely clear. He
recognized every one about him. Oxygen
has been administered constantly since
he awoke. Physicians are of the opinion
that the General's death may occur at

The Blseauu fcV*jR&i8®fi
A- review of the ease will show what the
general has passed through. For a week
after he returned from Chicago he com
plained of feeling unwell and spent but
an hour or so daily in his office. A week
ago last Saturday he yielded to the per
suasion of his wife and remained
indoors, and as he was no better
Monday morning did not leave his
room. He gradually grow worse until'
about 7 o'clock Monday evening, when
he became delirious, and It was with the
greatest difficulty that he could be
quletod. He was finally placed in his
chair when the first signs of the
heart trouble became apparent. For
so cue time his breathing was la
bored, and at times seemed to
cease altogether. Stupor followed the
recovery of the action of the heart, and
all night Monday he was in the most
critical condition. Tuesday he rallied
somewhat, but there was a slight relapse
again in the evening. The next attack
was a serious one on Friday morning.
That Gen. Sliteridan knew his condition
was shown by his request for a lawyer
to draw up his will. When this was
done he was able to sign it. Father
Walter of St. Matthew's church was
present to administer the last-rttesof tho
churoh. On Sunday night the following
bulletin was issued:
"the repeated attacks of partial fail
ure of the heart,and Its continued feeble
action, have induced a condition of tho
lungs which-prevents the proper aeration
of the blood. His condition has hitherto
been measurably controlled, but shows
such a tendency to recurrence as to jud
tify the most serious apprehensions. It

Wm« O'Brien Xouoauccs Bishop b'Dwyer
and Hi* "Grievous Sin" letter—The De
fense Scare Revived*—-Dom Pedro's Phy
sicians Adept New Treatment*
LONDO-ST, May 28. The National
League meeting held in Limerick Sun
day to protest against the papal rescript
was an enormous affair.* Special trains
were run to bring peoplo in from out
lying points, and their capacity was
taxed to the utmost. Mr. William
O'Brien, the principal orator, made a
scathing attack upon Eishop.CTOwyer of
Limerick for having written the mayor,
warning Catholics against attending
the meeting under pain of com
mitting grievous sin, and virtually
accused the bishop of constructive false
hood. A copy of tho obnoxious letter,
Mr. O'Brien declared, was sent by
Bishop O'Dwyer to every Orange news
paper in the kingdom, while a copy was
not sent to the mayor of Limerick to
whom it was addressed.
Bishop O'Dwyer supplying copies of
his manifesto to every Orange newspa
per in the country and falling to seDd a
copy to the mayor of Limerick, who only
learned of the letter by seeing it in print,
was, Mr. O'Brien said, as cowardly as his
allegations were untrue. There never
was, he asserted, anything moro false
than Bishop O'Dwyers assertion Miat
the promoters of this meeting were agi
tating against the people. Mr. O'Brien's
remarks created great excitement.
The remarks elicited repeated cheers
for himself and other Home Rule leaders,
and often brought forth groans for
Bishop O'Dwyer. The bishop left Lim
erick Saturday evening, manifestly not
caring to remain in the city during the
etorpi he must have known his letter,
would create.
A large number of meetings were held
