TELE ARGUS. I FRIDAY, MAY 8. 1891.
The Italian Consul at New Or
leans Is Caustic.
HIS CEITICISM OF THE GEM1 JURY.
That Hod jr Charged with Garbling mad
Suppressing Hi Statements A Map
at American Political Methods The
Slaughter of March 14 Declared to
Bare Iteen Premeditated Appeal to
the I'nited State. Nationality of the
Victims O'Matley In Trlnt.
Xew Orleans, La., M.iy & Sirnor Pas
cual Corte, the Ilaliaa consul, yesterday
addressed the following letter to the fore
man of the grand jury, W. H. CUaffe:
"SlE: I am surprised to see printed in the
report vt your honorable body published
In the papers to-day a great alteration of
certain parts of my statements, made not
only before yon, but especially of those
mad to Mr. La fa ye and another member
of the grand jury at my residence, and not
under oath of secrecy. If, as it is publicly
asserted, some members of the fe-rand jury
were in the mob, and that body is trying
to excuse their actions, it does not concern
me personally, but I cannot allow my
statements to bs altered or partially pub
lished with the object of drawing infer
ence contrary to my deductions.
Uather Severe on the Politicians.
Mc U my opinion that solidity tthould
exist between good elements in order to
guard against bad ones, and in this sene
I was asked by the two gentlemen if there
are any Italian criminals in this city. I did
not hesitate to reply, without giving the
number, that there are not as many ai
there are of other nationalities, but I
added that it would be difficult to get rid
of them, either because the most of them
are naturalized Americans, who have the
support of politicians and certain author
ities, or because extraditions were too
costly in the United Mates."
The Undesirable Immigrant.
Referring to the arrival of certain unde
sirable immigrants on the steamship Kn
tella, M. Corte s-ays be told Mr. Dafaye:
I was surprised that the parties dele
gated expressly by the mayor to examine
into the condition of the immigrant, did
not notice that d4l passengers landed,
while the list called for only 633. This
explains to me Low easily fugitives from
justice could le introduced into this
country it authorities incompetent in
office or in such matters were intrusted
with said investigations. And it is part
ly to this undue mingling of outsiders in
the temple of justice that 1 ascribe the
Political Murder Alleged.
"But the agreeable silence, the studied
reticence aud other accompanying irregu
larities will never destroy the trnth of the
facts incurred, and whicli I denounced to
my government viz.: That an extra judi
cial body appointed by the mayor, from
the beginning premeditated, as it ap
peared in the appeal, t!ie killing of the
prisoners; that the same body assembled
on the night of the 13th of March to take
in cold blood tfe necessary tteps to kill,
for political purposes, defenseless but
Nothing Done to Prevent the Massacre.
"About twenty parties, among them
some representing the law and order, exe
cuted said project; that innocent Italian
blood was shed; that not only nothing
was done by the authorities to prevent it,
but a few officials contributed directly or
indirectly in order to accomplish the
work, aud linally that the names of the
participants in the killing, as well as
those of the instigators are of public noto
riety. Respectfully, P. Corte,
Consul of Italy.
APPEALS TO UNCLE SAM.
A Letter to the I'nited Mates District
Attorney, A I so, Mr. iirant.
M. Corte also addressed a letter to
United States District Attorney Grant,
In which he says that he has the record of
the men killed, their passport, and docu
ments from the Italian foreign office, and
that "according to the records in the reg
istration office and to tho above named
documents, which I have and are at your
disposal, there is no doubt that at the
time of their death Pietro Monastero,
Loreto Com it is, and Vincenzo Traina
were subjects of his majesty the king of
Italy, as also Antonio Grimando, who ar
rived here from Italy in November, 1S.S3.
although it is asserted, without proof,
that he manifested his intention Oct. 3,
1890, to become a citizen of the United
States under the name of Antonio Mar
cbesi. Only Two American Citizens.
All the others killed except Macbeca
and Frank Komeo, the first an American
by birth and the second by decree signed
by Jndge Tbear l, dated April 6, St'iS, I
must consider Italians, either for their
not having complied with the formali
ties required by an article of the Italian
civil code to renounce their citizenship, or
for not complying with those of section
2,VA of the revised statutes of the United
States, the only legal way to become
American citizens. If article 185 of the
constitution of Louisiana of 1879 accords
to aliens manifesting their intention to
become American citizens the right to
vote at certain elections and under stated
conditions it does not, according to the
terms of the document given voters, make
them American citizens."
SOMETHING MORE FROM O'MALLEY.
Be frays That the live Italian Tried
Were Innocent of the Crime.
New OKLEA5S, May 8 Dominick O'Mal
ley, the detective, has sent a long state
ment to the press in which he gives a his
tory of that portion of his life which dates
from bis arrival in New Orleans. O'Mal
ley came here in 1S78, and Bince that time
has been 'employed by several prominent
concerns. He gives a detailed account of
bis services for the state in the capacity
of a detective, and reviews at length the
famous Matrauga-Provenzmo and Hen
nessey cases. lie reiterates his statement
that the five Italians who underwent trial
for the murder of Chief Hennessey were
Innocent of the crime, and says that he
would give bis theory of the crime if be
bad any direct evidence at baud to sub
Only Asks a Fair Trial.
Tbe day will come, he believes, when he
can speak positively on this point, but for
tbe present be will maintain a strict si
lence, fearing that if be should apeak
on tbe subject be would throw suspicion .
on certain persons who may be perfectly
innocent. He states, however, that Chief
Hennessey was not murdered by member
cf the Mafia. O'Malley reasserts his in
nocence of any connection in the Hennes
sey case, and says h fears no investiga
tion. All be wants is a fair trial. He al
leges that bis life has been threatened,
and that be has been told that if acquitted
be will be lynched.

New York. May a Mr. William II.
jJeacb, president of the Hudson County
Methodist Alliance, in nn address to the
tlreenville branch of tho Young Men's
Christian association, said: "I propose to
tell you this evening how I would man
age the Greenville Young Men's Christian
association, if I had control over it. To
legin with, I would throw out all the
tymnasium apparatus in the place. Row.
lag machines, chest weights, parallel bars,
and the other things of that kind that
you have here are all good enough in their
r lace, but the rooms of a Young Men's
C hristian association is not the place for
them. They do more barm than good.
Base Ball Players Not Gentlemen.
1 would also prohibit base ball playing.
Is may be our national game, but I can
assert without fear of contradiction that
I never in my life saw a professional base
I all player wno was a gentleman. Take
t ie Tabernacle Athletic club's base ball
t -am, for instance. Is it a credit to the
Tabernacle church? 1 answer most posi-
t.vely, no. A few evenings ago I visited
tae gymnasium of the Tabernacle Ath
1 tic association. There was a billiard
tible there. Two young men whose
actions showed that they belonged in a lo
ctlily not much better than the Bowery
i:j New York, were playing.
Believes Talk Is the Thing.
"Their actions disgusted me. They
I auged their cues on the floor, and it was
evident that they bad been brought up in
s iloons. I was so surprised and disgust
e 1 that I left. I do not believe that bowl
iiig alleys, billiard tables or gymnasiums
v ill ever sava the souls of our young men,
or reform them. If I set out to reform a
y Jung man I would take bold of him and
talk to him. If that did not have the de
sired effect I would simply leave him
a one. I advise the youn men of the
Greenville Christian association to throw
tiie gymnasium apparatus out. You will
had that as long as you keep it there von
will not do the work you are organ
ued to do."
S-nt to a Retreat To Be Cured of the
Sagixaw, Mich., May & T. E. Tarsney,
et-conyressman from tliis district and
o le cf the most prominent lawyers of
S jginaw, has been taken by his friends
to a retreat. Mr. Tarney is well known
njt only iu Michigau bat among
politicians throughout the country,
h iving been in tho time of bis
pjwer one of the test political speakers in
tl.e state. For several years past he has
bitn addicted to the ue of liquor, and it
his finally taken such a bold upon him
that he is now a complete wreck physi
ciliy, and unfit for any mental labor. Mr.
Tarsney, or 'Jim," as he is familiarly
kaown twice carried this district as a
candidate for congressional honors, but
was the third time defeated by A. T.
I'liss, the issue which killed him political
ly being bis habits. His friends still hope
that the treatment he will receive may
b-ace him up.
