An Inflammatory Speech In Scotland In

Threatened With Death ,
A nolHtoroim Meet Inc.
LONDON , April II. The lantpiago used by
Chamberlain In speaking at the meeting In
Ayr has Inll.imcd the Irish against htm nnd
ho has received numerous letters warning
him that ho will not leave Scotland alive.
Speaking to an assemblage of 2.00 persons ,
Chamberlain said : 'Tlio opponents of the
crimes bill have made an outcry against the
repression of liberty. Liberty to do what ?
To commit theft , to ruin Industrious men , to
outrage women , [ hisses , mingled with
cheers. ) What are you hissing , the crlroo or
the punishment ? " [ Hero a man rising and
menacing Chamberlain , cried : "It Is not
characteristic of the Irish to outrage
women. " ] An attempt was made to turn the
man out , but Chamberlain cried out : "Leave
him alone. " Then he continued : "Do you
want Instances of Insults offered to wo men ?
[ cheers and cries of "Outrage you said , you
HlanQortho Irish. " ) I did not mean the
grossest outraeo of all but personal violence
and Insults.Hisses and cheers. ] I referred
to cases like that of the Clinton family , whoso
lives , of the widow and daughters of the mur
dered man , were made Intolerable ; like that
ot the widow of another murdered man ,
Dyers , who , while accompanying the dead
body of her husband , was jeered and hooted
along the street. ( Here the speaker was In
terrupted by cries of "watch yourself , " hisses
nnd jccnoraldlsoidor.j I am relating facts
to which oven my opponents might listen In
the silence of horror and shame when I refer
to assassinations. A man here says'Take
oaro of yourself. ' lias the time como when
wo dare not discuss political matters In this
country without being threatened with as-
Hasslnatlon ? iGte.it cheering. ] This Is the
spirit ot the parties In the convention In
Chicago. I am Rorry to know that they have
any representative In Scotland. [ Cries ot
"They are not Scotchmen. " ] That conven
tion , besides being attended by delegates
honestly in sympathy with Ireland , had dele
gates of a different stamp apostles of out
rage and murder , who have paid the outrage
mnnirora of England. Mr. Redmond , thn
delegate ot the Irish parliamentary party , ex
plicitly declared before the convention that
it was the aim of that party to etfect the en
tire separation of Ireland from England , and
that their policy was to make tlio Government
of Ireland by Kncland Impossible. This
they seek to effect by the most Immoral
conspiracy "over devised in a civilized
land , by contending for liberty to
violate every law. human and
divine. Do you think It infamous to restrain
these men ? [ Cheers. ] Mr. Parnell threat
ened In the house of commons , under the
upeclous gulso of warning , that if the ooei-
clon bill was passed there would bo a renewal -
newal of the outrages , dynamite explosions
and an attempt to assassinate our statesmen.
This grim suggestion may prove the death
warrant of bomoot us. [ Cries of "no. " | Well ,
what happens to Individuals l.s not of much

arduous. But we will , not shrink , wo will
not abate , wo will not yield to threats , from
whatever quarter they come , but wo will en
deavor to hand down unimpaired to our
children the unity , stinnpth and honor of the
mighty empire our forefathers bequeathed
us.Chamberlain's speech excites all parties.
The unionists consider It a declaration ot
war to the knife with the separatists. The
Oladstonlans charge Chamberlain with slan
dering and villlfylhg his former colleagues
by the Insinuation that they sj mnathize with
the perpetrators of outrages In Ireland. It Is

A Lararo flfootliiK In Washington Ad-
drcHflod Uy Prominent Men.
WASHINGTON , April 14. ( Special Tele
gram to the BKK.J The meeting this
evening in Musoulo temple to give
expression on the part of "American
residents and sojotirncrs at the national capi
tal" to protest against the passage of the
coercion bill for Ireland now pending In the
British parliament , was largely attended.
The chairman ot the committee called
the meeting to order and Intro
duced Congressman Springer , of Illinois ,
to preside. After staling the purpose of the
meeting Springer said : The contest now
going on In Great Brltlan In reference to the
government of Ireland was In many respects
very similar to that which was carried on In
the AniL-rlcixn colonies , and It would not be
Inappropriate for Ireland at this
time to proclaim that Immortal
declaration ot Independence which
115 years ago was proclaimed In Philadel
phia. General Koaocraiis , register of the
rcasury , spoke briefly.
Kx-Senator Van Wyck , of Nebraska , was
now Introduced. He quoted fiom the circu
lar call for the meeting references to the
threatened suspension of the writ of habeas
coruus in time of peace ; the abildgmeut
and. In some cases , abolition of the light of
trial by jury ; thn transportation of Irish
men , charged with Intended offenses , to
"England for trlnl by allun juroio , " and the
quartering of largo bodies of troops among
tlio people of Ireland , thus eating away our
substances , ' a'ld drew a parallel between them
and passages In the American Declaration of
Independence lolatlng to the nuarteilngof
largo bodies of armed troops among us ; tlio
deprivation , in many cases , of tlio right of
I trial by jury : the tiansportiitlon of Ameri
cans beyond the peas to be tried for pre
tended olfenscs. etc.aKnifland , ho salct.nad
more reason for her pretended right to op
press the colonies than she has for oppress
ing Ireland. In our case she claimed the tcr-
altory and planted her people and govern
ment Ireland had been taken by conquest
and spoliation , for which the vengeance of
men and the just judgment ot heaven had
been too long ilelaj ed. Our rescue had been
aided by sympathy and assistance In money
and blood ot tnoso in other lands
who loved liberty. How could wo
remain unconcerned when the same unnat
ural monster , always ready to devour what
ever was within her power , was seeking to
destroy Ireland. Wo owed Ireland a debt
contracted more than a hundred jears ago ,
and we could now pay a portion of It In
sympathy and dollars by saying to England
that it concerns America that judgment made
up by revolution , to which she was a party ,
Ahould bo recognized in her dealings with
thosHwho were then our allies and have
always been our friends.
Congressmen Craln , ot Texas , read to the
meeting resolutions prepared by the commit
tee appointed for the purpose , the closing
parcgranh being as follows :
Kesolved , That the enactment of such
diabolical laws would not alone bo an
" outrage on the Irish people , but a
- crime against the splut of liberty
> * everywhere , and that tl.o Tranters and advo
cates of the coercion bill should go down to
posterity condemned by humanity and
branded w Ith Infamy.
ThuiOEolutloiis were adopted with cheers
nnd music , and an agreement was made that
they would bo cabled to Gladstone and Par
nell. A large number of letters of regret
were read by tlie secretary. John Sherman
wrote : "Your kind letter of the Cth , Inviting
me to attend the proposed mass meeting at
Masonic temple for the purpose of entering
a protest against the passage of the coercion
bill now pending In the British parliament ,
Is received. 1 regret that I shall not bo able

kept on sale till to-day under a mlsapprehan-

Ho Writer ) a hotter to Ills Abandoned
Wife Saying Ho Was Hulncd By
Cards Other News From
.Tnd o Labour n Oornnlter.
Dr. MOINKS la. , April H.HSpeelal Tele
gram to the BEE.J There scorn's to bo no
doubt but that Police Judge L. J. Labour , o
this city , has lied to Canada to escape fiom
tlio consequences of the misappropriation o
n largo sum collected In tines during the
tlirce years of his service In Uiat olllce. llo
left the elty Friday night for the cast , giving
out that ho had gone to Omaha to see the ba o
ball game and leaving word that business for
his court should be s > cnt to the justices' offlccs.
Ills departure was regarded with suspicion
by the city And county authorities and caused
his wlfu great alarm until Ttissday , when
she received a letter from him , written In
Chicago , saying that he was short in his ac
counts , that cards Had ruined him , that her
piano was p-jid for , and that ho was pained
beyond expression at being obliged to leave
his darling wtfo and child. This was shown
to Mr.V. . C. McCord , his clerk , and thus
communicated to the authorities , and the
facts leading up to his absconding are
gradually leaking out. Labour was originally
from Independence , la. , where ho was ad
mitted to the bar ten years ago , and later
resided at Colfax , where ho served as mayor ,
removing from there to this city and engag-
In ? , some six years ago , In the practice of the
law on the east side , lie Is a man ot about
thirty-live years and of decidedly prepossess
ing appearance and manner , and as a can
didate for offlco proved extremely popular.
He drove a line horse , and It Is now remem
bered that ho put on a good deal of style for
a man whoso salary was but 81,200. Ills
a soclates were rather fast , and it was said
that ho was intimate with women or doubt
ful character. He was a member of many
secret organlratlons , and rumors are cir
culated that ho is short 83,000 to the Druids ,
S600 to the Red Men , and smaller amounts to
other orders , but this is denied bo far as the
Druids are concerned. llo owed
SSOO to the American Savings
bank , advanced on Ma note , with
Vi. C. McCord as surety. Ills great shortage ,
however. Is to the school fund , and It Is esti
mated at 34,000. Durlnc the three years of
his service as police judge ho lias paid In but
S27.50 , out of an amount which the county
treasuier estimates by previous receipts as at
least S4.00U. The law required him to pay in
all the lines in state rases paid in cash , and
the number thus paid has been very largo :
but he appears to have totally dlsrcgardod
the law from the \ery start. The amount
cannot bo acciuatdy estimated until his
books are thoioughly examined. Labour
had torn out of his private account book
aoout twenty loaves , evidently Intending to
either take them with him or destroy them ;
but ho either forgot to do so or changed his
mind , for tholoavcs wore loft In a draper In
his olllce. It Is gpiier'aily believed that the
mlssinc olllclal has gone to Canada ,
though the letter received Tuesday said that
ho was sick In Chicago. Ills wlto
Is piostrated by his abandonment of
her ana almost besldo hoisolf. With their
little girl she Is staying with hf > r father , Mr.
J. C. Klc.n , of the Kast side. Mr. Klch says
that Judge Labour's trlonds will turnish the
missing money and that ho himself will go
and bring him back. Juduo Labour had
drawn his salary from the city up to April 1 ,
but had not turned in the cash collected dur
ing March. His shoitago to the county had
been suspected for some time , and when

he was knocked down by them , his arm
being broken above the elbow , and lobbed of

for the cash oranotherccrtlllcato. The bank

lice , and Deputy Marshal Burns promptly
went and airested him. llo claimed that he

Srr.iNoriEi.D , 111. , April It. The annual
Lincoln memorial exorcises will bo held In
the hall of representatives to-morrow. The
deepest Interest Is being manifested In the
approaching exercises In honor of tlio mar-
tj red president on account of the revelations
which are expected to be made relative to the
disposition of the body of President Lincoln
after the attempt was made In 1870 to steal
the body from the sarcophagus under the
Lincoln monument , In which it was placed.
The facts , as ne.ir as could bo ascertained by
a press reporter , and which will bo brought
to light to-morrow in an address to bo made
by Clinton L. Conkllng , ono of the members
of the Lincoln guards of honor , arn ns fol
lows :0n : the night of Novembor7lb70Mulllns
and Hughes , t\vo Chic.igo thieves , made an
unsuccssful attempt to steal the body of the
late President Lincoln , The marble sarco
phagus In which it was enclosed , and which
was exposed to the view ot visitors through
the iron grating on the north side of the
monument , was forced open , and the cotlln
was taken out , but at this point the robbers
were Interfered with by certain persons se
creted In the monument , who had received
Information that the robbery was to bo at
tempted , and abandoned their strange booty.
Since that time the public mind has been in
a state of uncertainty as to the real resting
place of the martyr's body , a icport havlne
gone out that It was not re tinned
to the sarcophagus' -after the at
tempted robbery. All the mystery
that has attached to the matter has now
cleared awav. It appears that the body was
replaced In the sarcophagus , nnd remained
there for about a we k. The members of the
association , however , felt that It was Insecure
and It was subsequently icinoved to a place
ot greater safety. Finally , the "Lincoln
Guard of Honor , " which Is composed of some
of our bust known and most highly respected
citizens , was organised , and ono ot the duties
of this association has been to sacredly guard
the bodv of the dead president. During the
month of November , 1878 , the members of
thoguaid , with their own hands , prepaied a
vault within the monument for the body.
An excavation was made In the earth about
thirty feet south of the sarcoohagus and the
body was safely deposited therein and
the mouth Of the excavation was
closed. The atmosphere at the point vvheie. ,
the excavation was made was almost stilling
and the work was prosecuted atdirferont
times during the stillness of night , with no
human eye to witness It save those who as
sisted In the labor of love. Two days after
the funeral .of Mrs. Lincoln , In July , Ibv. ,
her body was taken by the guard and laid be
side that of her husband. The members
bound thcmsel ves by the solemn Ity of .in oath
not to reveal what had been done until the
piopertlmo should arrive to do so , and that
time has now arrived. Ycsteiday both of
these bodies wore taken by the Lin
coln guard of honor , In the presence of
the monument association , and placed
in anew rccopticlo piopared for them dur
ing the week. This receptacle l.s in the eaith ,
near where the wrcouhacub has so long staid.
It has on the bottom twelve Inches ot ce
ment , and has double walls of brick. The
entrance to it , now that the bodies have been
placed in their linal resting place. Is ce-
moiitod over and grouted , nnd this will in
time become as solid as rock. After this
work had been completed the bodies were
formally turned o\cr by the guard to the
monument association and wore accepted by
It. Before being finally entombed the colhn
containing the body of Lincoln was opened
and the body Identified. The hair and whis
kers have fallen off nnd the face Is very
black. The contour is. however , still per
fect and the face Is said to strongly resemble
that of the bron/.o statue on the monument.
Concerning Passenger Rntcti.
CHICAGO , April 4. A joint conference
was held hero to day between the trunk line
and central traffic general passenger agents.
It was agreed that excursion lates should bo
granted to parties of fifty .tnil over on the
certificate plan. No half rates to ministers
of religion can bo granted and no special
rates to thoati leal pai ties. The boycott was
not discussed and , contrary to expectation ,
no conference wllh western nlliclals was
held or suggested. The Pennsylvania com
pany repudiates the agreement made by the
general managers ot the cential tr.iflic asso
ciation lines in regard to the cram Ins of
differential tares to weak lines. Thoieason
given Is that the old 'central ' tralllc organl/a-
tlon Is dead , and concessions made before it
expired are not binding. The weak lines
both out of Chicago and St. Louis seem de
termined to have differentials , novcitheless ,
and aio already Including western ticket
ugonts to quote the newer rates.
Tno western states passenger association
to-day decided to grant special rates to re
ligious , military and beneficiary organiza
tions for their various gathci ings. When an
attendance of 1,000 or moio Is guaranteed ,
one fare for the round trip will be man ted ,
and It Is probable that the rate on the date of
a convention or gathering will bo made an
open ono to the public. To smaller reunions
one andone-thiid faro for the lound trip will
be the rate and tickets will bo sold under the
old 001U lieu to plan.
