f $raddockis Still in Allegheny
Connty League.
,To Admit the Oakland and Sewickley
lC ni.u
flarrj Walton Challenges Any of the
Local Bantams.
'.' .Public interest .in the Allegheny County
league 'and local amateur ball playing
generally is certainly largely on the in
crease. Every person interested in the
-league, and there are thousands, are full of
curiosity to know what will be done at the
, league .meeting to-morrow evening. Prob
i ably there is a great surpriFe in store, and
it it may be that after all the league will be
$ increased to ten clubs. Contrary to public
& announcements, the Braddock club has not
yet dropped from the list That club will
J' be represented at to-morrow night's meet
' ing. This fact will doubtless surprise
X many people, particularly those who arefigur
W Ing on Securing Braddock's place.
S That matters are somewhat complicated in
the league there is no doubt, hut it is ex
? pected that everything will be satisfactorily
E cleared up.
w Thefactsoftheentirematteraretotherollow
t ing effect: "When the league held its last meet
ly ing Braddock was not represented, but the
i1 managers of that club had forwarded the resig
f , nation of the club to the meeting by special
delivery. The latter had, by some misnnder
4 Branding, not been delivered to the meeting nor
j to any officials of the league.
On the following day Mr. Barr, Secretory of
' the league, accidently met the manager of the
' Braddock club, and asked him why the club
had not been represented at the meeting- It
was then that Mr. Barr was informed of the
v resignation, and the Braddock manager, seeing
that it had not been dealt with, requested that
it be kept quiet for a week, and if at the ex
piration of that time Braddock was not heard
from, it could take effect. This was agreed
Iupon. The week expired on Tuesday, and on
that day the Braddock manager wrote Secre
tary, Barr to the effect that the club was likely
to secure grounds, and would therefore be rep
resented at the meeting to-morrow evening.
This has complicated matters considerably,
as both Oakland and Sewickley have been
making the most strenuous efforts to gain the
'. place that Braddock was expected to vacate.
Representatives of Oakland and Sewickley
have been requested to attend the meeting to
morrow evening, and their 'presence, in con
junction with that of the Braddock representa
tives, will probably make the meeting interest
ing and lively. If the Braddockscan show that
they have suitable grounds, it is difficult to un
derstand how they can be refused their place
in the league. On the other hand, by a misun
derstanding Oakland and Sewickley have bern
led to believe that one of them would be elect
ed to fill Braddock's place.
This condition of things was discussed with
animation yesterday at the various resorts of
the amateur plavers, and there seemed to be a
general sentiment in favor of admltting'both
Oakland and Sewickley and making a ten-club
leaeue, providing Braddock holds its place. It
is likely, therefore, that to-morrow evening,
I after, all three clubs have stated their cases,
and if Braddock has secured suitable grounds,
a motion will be made
in the league. Everybody concerned is ex
'tremeiy hopeful that Braddock will secure
grounds, and it is confidently believed that
there are a sufficient number of lovers of the
national game in that borongh to
help the clnb out of its difficulties. If
this is done it certainly seems that
the wisest course would be to have ten clubs in
the league. An action of this kind would as
suredly be to the benefit of the entire league,
as it would increase tbeinterest and enthusiasm
in the contest throughout the connty. The
local rivalry between the Sewickleys, Ems
worths and Riverside Greys would be profita
ble to each. The same may be said of Brad
dock, Homestead and McKeesport, and also of
the Oaklands and East End Athletics. A
schedule for the ten clubs could just as easily
he carried out as a schedule for eight; in fact,
all the argument of the question is in favor of
the ten-club idea. Without a doubt it would
allay a vast amount of envy and bad feeling.
. Itecarding the reports circulated about the
Duquesnes, Secretory Barr yesterday said:
"There certainly has been some misunder
standing somewhere, We are all extremely
anxious to keep the Duquesnes, and most as
suredly 1 never said that we ever thought of
dropping them out. We are willing to give
them every encouragement. There was a re
port abroad, however, to the effect that they
, .intended' to sell their franchise to the Mar
shalls. If they had attempted to do this the
league 'would certainly have declared their
place vacant and elected another clnb instead
of tbem. The Duquesnes pledge themselves
to fulfil all obligations, and this is enough for
Mr. Barr refused to express an opinion re
garding the ten-club scheme, but in answer to
a pointed question said that if Braddock se
cures gronnds it will be introduced at to
morrow night's meeting.
Last evening a representative of the Oak
lands called at this office and left the following
statement in behalf of that club: "The Oak
land Ball Club is making a bid for Braddock's
place In the County League only on the under
standing that Braddock falls to secure grounds
by Friday evening. Since the League meeting
on the 7th, the clnb's prospects brightened to a
great extent. The club has secured the use of
the East Liberty parks, and the club has at its
back the Oakland Athletic Association. Ar
rangements have been made to sell season tick
ets and the clnb's strength will be double that
of last year."
, The representative enthusiastically favored
, the ten-club scheme. ,
Fixed the Limit.
v' The number of miles necessary for contest
V ants in the proposed local 142-hour pedestrian
contest to cover before they can obtain a prize
If&has been fixed at 475 miles. George Noremac
l5 considers that this is a reasonable limit on ac-
: count of a 15-Iap track such as the Central Rink
Jwill Be. juamson square is eignt laps, it has
"also been decided by Manager Davis that Madi
aeon Square rates will govern. Noremac will
aarrlve in the-city shortly to aid in the comple
tion of all the arrangements for the big con-
Braddock In Hard Luck.
Braddock will have no ball club this season.
This much is now a certainty, as their last
chance for obtaining suitable grounds resulted
,' unfavorably yesterday. The plot they ex-ipected-to
get has been purchased by the Mo
iKeesport and Bellevernon Railroad Company.
.They hare no other hope now but to appeal to
-Captain Jones for the Thirteenth street
'.grounds, near the steel works, which they
think it is useless to do.
Not Very Confident.
Mr. Rogers, trainer for Captain Sam Brown,
the horseman of this city, says: "I have been
in itwo handicaps with horses that I thought
would win, barring accident,' be said "This
year J -don't think'I can win unless there, is a
cataclysm of accidents to some of tbe other
fellows. Put 123 pounds on Hanover and get
' him to tbe post fit to race, and Defaulter conld
.not get alongside of him, no matter how light
is bis impost. I'm outclassed."
Thry Didn't Appear.
Efforts were resumed yesterday to arrange i
battle between Tommy Hogan. of this city, and
Shea; of 'Wheeling. The backers of tbe latter,
however, failed to show up in time and nothing
deanite was done. The Hogan party offered to
match their man to fight Shea at Wheeling
.with a guarantee of 200, receipts and an out
side bet of 1200 a side. This offer evidently
was Ignored.
Phillip.' Predictions. (
Manager Phillips said a word or two last
evening regarding the opening of the cham
pionship season. Horace -Scores' out tbatln-
dianapolis will open In Cleveland and Chicago
in Pittsburg. He also thinks tbe telegraphic
communications will keep everything right at
I week. i
The Pituburc Pitcher Knocked Ont of thA
Box on the Trip.
Numerous letters are arriving in the city
from the 'Australian" ball players. One re
ceived yesterday contained an Important state
ment. It went on to say that the reason Tener
has not been pitching lately is that he has been
"exploded." He has been knocked out of the
box so often that Tils duties now have been re
duced to that of umpire. This would perhaps
seem to mean he will not be with the Chicago s
next season.
Another gentleman received a long and ro
mantic letter from Fred Carrol, written on the
Indian Ocean. Fred says little about baseball
matters and cornunes himself to the gay scenes
and times of the trip. He does remark, how
ever, that he is hitting the' balL
According to cable reports Carroll is un
doubtedly finding the leather. Referring to
this fact last night Manager Phillips said:
"CarroU can always hit hard and regular out
side the championship season. Last winter at
California be hit bard, and this fact makes his
case more aggravating when he comes here in
championship contests and scarcely ever hits

Hognn or Kelly.
Davy Sheehan, the sprinter, yesterday re
ceived a letter from Harry Walton.the bantam
weight pugilist, who was recently defeated by
Cal McCarthy, stating that he (Walton) is
willing to fight either Kelly, Ridge or Hogan,
of this city, at catch-weight. Walton goes on
to say that the contest can take place in Phila
delphia, and he will guarantee a purse of 8300
at tbe least. , , . .
Kelly, of course, is out of the business, but
it is likely that cither Ridge or Hogan will give
Walton a "go," providing either of them is al
lowed his expenses to go to Philadelphia. A
battle between either of the local men and
Walton would be of considerable interest to
sporting people.
Weir nnd Murphr Want Him to Manage
Their Fight.
Chicago, February 27. "Parson" Davies
yesterday received a communication from the
backers of Ike Weir. "The Spider," and Frank
Murphy, the feather-weights, offering him the
management of their coming skin-glove fight
to a finish for $2,000, and the feather-weight
championship of the world,
Mr. Davies has taken tho matter under ad
visement and forwarded his conditions that he
shall have the naming of place, date and all
other arrangements pertaining to the same.
Should his conditions be accepted, (he contest
will, in all probability, take place within 40
miles of Chicago the latter part of March, and
Mr. Davies win go .Last ana personally con'

He Refuses to Skate Donoehue The Lat

Kettbtjro, February 27. The Donoghue

a diamond championship medal to cost 250, to
be given the winner ot three out of five of the
races named.
.The Thistle's Coming Doubted.
New Yore. February 27. Prominent yacht
ing men yesterday laughed at the idea of the
Thistle coining here to try for the America's
cup this year. They generally regarded the
rumors from the Clyde that she is fitting out
for a foreign voyage as a canard.
"The New York Yacht Club." said Commo
dore Klbridge T. Gerry, "has not received any
communication, official or unofficial, which
could give rise to tbe supposition that the
Thistle or any other British yacht club will
challenge for the cup this year. I do not think
there will be any international cup race this

McClelland nnd Cox.
E. C. McClelland, the pedestrian of this city,
returned from Wheeling yesterday where "he
took part in last week's pedestrian contest. He
stated that he has left his backer there to ar
range a match between himself, McClelland,

This Year's Appropriation Over That
Much More Than Last,
For the Taxes Which, Owing to the In
creased Assessments,
So Change as to the .Business Tax Is Deemed Adrlsalle
as Yet.
The item for HSland reservoir's new dis
tribution scheme ($75,000) and the assess
ments against the city for street improve
ments (525,000), neither of which show
comparative or parallel items for 1888, will
increase the city's expenditures estimated;
for this year by $100,000. Just where the
other $200,000 increase for the (year (as
compared with last) may be made, is indi
cated in the Finance Committee's figures
presented below. There is a decrease in
just one item that is tbe taxes on city
loans. The others are scaled up, as uni
formly as may, though the three great de
partments only foot up small sums of in
crease each: Public Works, about $8,000;
Safety, about $20,000, and Charities, $7,000.
The "business tax is not to be changed just
yet, it seems.
The Committee on Finance met in Select
Council1 chamber last night to receive the
report of the sub-committee appointed to fix
the tax levy for 1889, and draft the annual
appropriation ordinance. The committee
was called to order at 8:50 by Chairman W.
A. Magee, whereupon President Holliday,
as Chairman of the sub-committee, pre
sented the report. Mr. Holliday explained
that the report was as nearly correct as the
committee could calculate it, there being
as yet an incomplete report from the
Board of Assessors. But the sub-committee
thought best to submit its report at- once,
basing its calculations on a valuation of
$80,000,000 and a levy of 12 mills for the en
tire city. If the footings of the assessors
showed that this valuation was too great or
too small, the figures couM be changed by
Councils. Such changes might be necesssry,
but of that Councils should be the judges.
The following are the figures submitted
by the sub-committee for 1889, and with
them the figures for 1888, showing the com
parison with last year in receipts and ex
penditures. r J8S9. isss.

to be unjust, 'irregular and a burden, td those
upon whom it was imposed; as well ass
detriment to the business interests of the
Sir. Holliday, speaking' for the sub-committee,
stated that the petitions had been re
ceived, and discussed with due respect by
the sub-committee, but that owing to the
late hour at which they had been' received,
the sub-committee having then nearly com
pleted its work, it was decided to return the
petitions to the Finance Committee without
taking an action upon them, except recom
mending that the business tax levy of last
year be re-enacted'this year.
Mr. Getty protested against the business
tax levy of last year upon saloon keepers.
He thought the v business tax was a good
thing, but the assessments Aould be made
CfjuaL Under last year's levy a wholesale
liquor dealer was only taxed 1 mill,, while
the saloon keepers were taxed 10 mills.
Since the saloon keeper, under the new
license law, paid $200 a year for his license
into the city treasury, he 6hould not be com
pelled to pay so much more than his breth
ren who were in another class of the same
business, or, for that matter, iu any other
Mr. Magee called Mr. Getty's attention
to the fact that proprietors of pool, billiard
and bagatelle table rooms were assessed 20
Mr. Getty replied that, no matter whal
such people wfire taxed, they never made
any returns for their business, anyhow.
iHe moved that the levy on saloon keepers
be reduced to 1 mill. As there was no
second to this motion, Mr. Holliday moved
that the petitions be respectfully" returned
to Councils with the recommendation that
it would be impracticable to abolish the
business tax this year.
Mr. Magee moved to amend by addintr
that the business tax be abolished by drop
ping it at the rate of 25 per cent per year,
after this year, until the whole tax was
abolished. " "
Mr. Kobertson opposed the amendment.
He thought the rich men who sent in the pe
titions for the repeal of the business tax
were the very men who should pay it. It
was pnrej selfishness on their part. If the
business tax was repealed the money would
have to be taken out of the .pockets of the
poor man. That was what it was, taking
the tax off the rich few and putting it onto
the poor many. The rich merchant was here
to make money off the people, and he should
be made to pay the insignificant sum im
posed by this fax for the privilege.
Mr. Binder took the same ground, and in
regard to Mr. Getty's appeal for a reduction
of the saloon ' keepers' tax, Mr. Binder
thought that no class of business was better
able to stand a .good tax than saloon keep
ers, because their profits were so large. He
had been a saloon keeper for years' himself,
and Knew wnereoi be amrmea.
Mr. Getty became "riled" at this state
ment, and said that Mr. Binder's own case
did not bear out his statement, for, of all the
years Mr. Binder had been in the saloon
business, he had very little to' show for it
As for himself, Mr. Getty thought that he
could truthfully say that, if he had ex
pended as much time and energy to any
other business as he had. to the liquor busi
ness, he would have to-day $2 where he has
now but $1 and would be much more re
spected in the community.
When the vote was taken Mr. Holliday's
motion was passed, and. Mr. Magee's amend
ment lost.
Mr. Tienziehausen objected to the appro
priation providing for repaying Cherry
alley between Third avenue ana Water
street. He wanted the alley paved from
Water to Liberty streets, and $4,000 added
to the appropriation'for that purpose, as the
street needed repaving as much at one end
as the other.
Mr. Holliday stated that the sub-committee
was fully aware that nearly every street
in the lower part of the city needed repaying
as did some of the .other streets, but they
had decided the city could not afford it this
year. Mr. Bigelow had sent in a list ofthe
.improvements he thought absolutely neces
sary, and the sub-committee had taken this
list and selected the improvements, that in
their judgment were most imperative and
could be afforded by the city this year.
Mr. Benziehausen's motion was lost.
An explanation was asked from Mr.
Holliday concerning the $75,000 for a dis
tributing main from the Hiland reservoir.
He replied that it was well-known fact that
that part of the city around Oakland was
short ot water, and that there was a crying
necessitv for water in that section. It
would cost $200,000 to connect the Hiland
reservoir with the lower part of the city,
and that would have to be done very soon,
but could be this year. Sixty thousand
dollars would run a main from the reservoir
to Oakland and down over the hill to Second
avenue. The balance of the distance could
be covered next year.
Messrs. Bobertson and Binder objected to
the item providing $249,000 to the fire
bureau, but withdrew their objections,upon
a motion being passed that this sum shonld
include $3,000 to be devoted to the purchase
of a lot for a fire engine house in the Thirty
first ward, and $7,000 for the purchase ofa
lot and erection of an eneine house on the
.boundary between the Thirty-second and
Thirty-fifth wards. This was the only
change made in the sub-committee's report,
which was then adopted by the committee
and ordered retnrned to Councils with an
affirmative recommendation.

cans Are Among the
St. George, Ont., February 27i The
St. Louis express, passing here, east-bound,
at about 6 o'clock this evening, went
through 0 bridge just east of the (tation. A
broken tire on one of the engine wheels
caused the rails to spread, and the first pas
senger car, a Pullman car and the dining
car, went through the middle section of the
bridge. The Pullman car, which con
tained most of the passengers, was thrown
clear off the bridge, turning completely
over, and landing right side up. The
dining car stands on end against the pier.
A passenger car remains on the bridge,
having stripped the ties ahead of it over
the section, that collapsed. Fight or ten
persons were killed and about 30 were
wounded who have been taken
out of the cars. v The scene of the
wreck is appalling. On one part of the
bridge are a number of ties heaped together,
some of them splintered to 'atoms. A par
tially demolished Pullman car occupies a
place on the bridge. The dining car stands
almost perpendicularly upon its end. The
upper end leans against one of tbe vast
stone pillars.
The hind wheels of the car became de
tached from it. just before it took its fearful
leap, and they now nestle in the iron frame
work' of the bridge. The first-class couch
took a complete somersault in its descent,
and, though it landed right side up, is very
nearly demolished. The following is a list
of the killed nnd wounded:

President Cleveland Entertains His Suc
cessor at a' Little Dinner at the
White House APleai
nnt Occasion.
At 7 o'clock General and Mrs. Harrison
went to the "White Honse to dine. The in
vitation for this event was brought over
by Executive Clerk Pruden, with the cards
of President and Mrs. Cleveland",
yesterday afternoon. Such a din
ner is a pleasant innovation upon
the recognized customs attending the out
going and incoming of Presidents. Some
thing like it was attempted four years ago
when President Arthur invited the
President-elect to a dinner ' the
night before the inanguration.
But President Cleveland did not
accept the invitation. The- following ont
now of this precedent is recognized
as a very graceful -'act upon the
part of- the Cleyelands, and was accepted
as such by General and Mrs. Harrison.
The latter donned for the occasion one of
the best of her new gowns, a fabrication of
black lace, over a gold-colored satin under
dress, trimmed with point lace. Mrs. Cleve
land wore, pne of .the Directoire gowns of
neutral tint, of which she effects so much,
and which becomes her so well. The only
persons at the dinner were the President
and Mrs. 'Folsom, Mrs. Cleveland's mother.
An interesting piece of gossip which
the courtesy paid by President
Cleveland to-night to his successor
robs of what might seem to
be a sting, is that Mrs. Cleveland will not,
under any circumstances, attend the Inaug
ural ball, and that neither Mrs. Whitney
nor Mrs. Faircnild will be there. Secre
tary Whitney, it .is said, is arranging a
theater party for. the Cabinet ladies for the
night of the ball.
While the General and Mrs. Harrison
were being entertained at the White House
the young folks kept honse at the Arling
ton. Dinner was served in the private
dining room, and in bonor ot their
freedom from the reign of the old
folks the meal was made unusually
elaborate and protracted. The only guest
was Miss Louise Shepard, daughter of
Elliott F. Shepard, who was with the family
upon the invitation of Mr. and Mrs. Eussell
Gen. Hnrrlion Declines to Sup With Bel.
den's Guests No Set Programme
for To-Dny-All Well
' nnd Hearty.
General and Mrs. Harrisonlreturned from
the White House at a few minutes after 10
o'clock, and a little later Mr. Morton
came over and paid his respects. He re
mained but a few minutes. 'The only other
callers'of note werer24 gentlemen who had
been .Congressman Beldon's guests at a din
ner in the large private dining room on
the first floor of the annex. The
dinner was of the most elaborate sort.
The table was decked' with large clusters of
magna charta and hybrid roses, and the
buttonieres were of orchids. The guests
inclnded Senator Hiscock and most of the
Republican representatives, and several
Congressmen-elect and ex-Congressmen
.from New York State.,
The plan had been to induce General
Harrison to come downstairs and join the
party before dinner ended. Presumably
General Harrison declined to do so, for soon
after his return from the White House the
dinner party broke up, and the members of
it went upstairs in a body and paid theirre
spectsto the General and his family.
No programme has been arranged for to
morrow, and it'is supposed that if the day
is pleasant the party will take a
drive and devote the rest of the
day to the reception of visitors.
They are all to-night, down to the smallest
baby, in excellent health and spirits, bar
ring the depressing effect of their confine
ment indoors, which has lasted practically
ever since they left Indianapolis.

The League President Tells How the Evi
dence Against Figott Was Secured
The Credit I Atl Dae to Egnn
Home Bale Coming.
Chicago, February 27. In conversation
to-day Mr. Alexander Sullivan, speaking
in relation to the discovery of Pigott as the
forger of the Parnell case, said:
I'have but little to add to the version given
in your report this morning. In the main it
was correct. The errors are merely as to de
tails. The package. which Father Dorney car
ried was not addressed or delivered to Mr. Par
nell, but to Mr. Laboucb6re. Father Donley's
traveling companion was Father Edward J.
Dunne, of this city, and not Father Herbert
The credit for the discovery is due exclusively
to Patrick Egan. No other man living who is
not a member of the Times conspiracy could
have exposed the crime and unveiled the
criminal,-and few other men wonld have the
keenness, the persistence andtheabilltyto that
good work if the material had been at their
command. It is difficult to conceive how a man
conld he placed iu a more trying position than
that occupied by Mr. Egan before the discov
ery. Some of tbe worst letters were charged to
him. He read them over and over again, recog
nized their wonderfully accurate imitation of
his writing, and their still more wonderful and,
if possible, more accurate reproduction of his
style of composition.
Many sentences were so familiar to him that
he could almost remember that at some time
he wrote them. Yet following those creatures
of his brain which he recognized were others
of which he had no recollection, which he
could not explain, for whose association with
the preceding ones he could offer no explana
tion to a court or jury, except a denial, and a
charge against some unknown person off or
cery. Bat these again were followed by sen
tences as genuine as the first ones; and. their
horribly accurate prodnctlon of his own
thoughts clothed in his own language was
enough to make him doubt his own sanity.
He knew be was Innocent as an nnbom babe
of tbe folly and criminality with which he was
charged. He knew his friend and leader, Par
nell, was equally innocent of the folly and
criminality of which he stood accused. But
Egan felt that Parnell and tbe others were on
the ground near the places where the crimes
were committed.. Being there, something
might occur, some exposure might be made,
which wonld give tbem a cine. He, tbongh,
mnst be helpless. What could a man do
who was 5,000 miles away from the place where,
according to all ordinary reasoning, any service
must be rendered?
Egan believed that if he was on the ground
he conld hear a whisper, detect a movement or
a glance which might enable him to vindicate
Parnell and drag forth a villain. He paced his
room and his office and racked his brain, won
dering who could be tbe person capable of so
mastering his chirography and bis mode of ex
pression. At last the secret Paris address,
secured at Pigott's request when he wanted to
send Egan a blackmailing letter, was attached
to one of the forged letters.
The clew was furnisbed. The means chosen
at( Pigott's request to enable him to try to
blackmail Egan became in Egan's alert mind
and willing hands the weapon which destroyed
the knave and conspirator. So, it came to pass,
that Egan across the ocean, with his well-preserved
records and correspondence, his good
memory, his shrewdness, and his devotion,
which was strong enongh to convert skill into
genins, was able to say: 1
"Stand forth, Richard Pigott. Yon, the
thief, forger and blackmailer of old, whom I
had almost forgotten, are the forger of this
great conspiracy."
"Xetnie ask yon, Mr. Sullivan," said the
reporter, "what part you had in the good
Simply this: Mr. Egan came to me with the
letters genuine and forged the photographs
and the opinions of the experts. From these
and his own recollection the brief or history
was prepared. This so stated and explained
the documents that wnerfplaced in chronolog
ical order the case was so clear that its clear
ness amounted to demonstration. After this
was completed my responsibility began, for
Mr. Egan said:
"You must now take the load on your
shoulders. I rely upon' you to select a man who,
can be trusted to"crry this safely.' I feel so
elated and have unexpectedly accomplished so
much that I begin to fear I may make some
mistake," and laughingly, he added, "I will
hold you responsible for tbe safe delivery of
the package?'
CHOOSING a. pateiot.
I then remembered that Father Dorney had
left the city several days before that with a
party of priests who were going to Europe.-An
inquiry of his father brought the information
that the patriotic young priest was still in New
York, and that tbe party would sail on the fol
lowing Saturday. That settled the question.
That name needed no canvassing. No ques
tions bad to be asked about his brains,his judg
ment, his coniage, his fidelity or his patriotism.
He was the man a man to whose keeping one
conld safely entrust bis very soul. I said to
Mr. Egan:
"Father Maurice J. Dorney sails from New
York next Saturday. He will carry thenack.
age. If he lives the package will be delivered
to Laboucbere. If he dies Father .Dnnne will
deliver it for him. Nothing bnt tbe sinking of
that ship will prevent that package from reach
ing cur friends."
I willingly bore the responsibility of that se
lection. Mr. Egan took the first train to New
York, and found Father Dorney awaiting bim
in tbe depot, as he had been requested by tele
graph to do. He accepted the trust, and, as
the world now knows, executed it faithfully.
But we spent some anxious hours until we got
the cipher message from Domey which meant:
I arrived safely and delivered tbe package.
Since then, we who know the' facts have
been jubilant. But each of us had to flock by
himself and celebrate in solitude, fearful that
single word might betray onr knowledge. We
knew the British Government and the Times
were joined in the war.
Letters through the mall would be stolen.
We knew that they had bribed a villain- to
forge letters,, and that if. they learned his
work had become useless, they could bribe
other villains to commit some other crimes
and charge them upon Parnell in such a man
ner and at snch a time as would make it diffi
cult if not impossible for him to disproe
them. Hence our self-imposed sentences of
I think this will undo all the work 'the
Times had done. It had succeeded in
solidifying Tory sentiment against tbe Irish
cause and in frightening a large section of
Liberals. When it is shown that Parnell and
his associates are the victims of a conspiracy
and conspirators so vile that the language is
too barren to dpscribe the depth of their in
famy, the frightened English Liberals will
realize that they have been deceived. Tbey
will follow Parnell and Gladstone, and let
Ireland govern Ireland.
I consider tho complete exposure of the plot
to destroy Parnell. the destruction of the last
impediment to home rule. It only reauires a
general election to end tbe straggle. How long
Torys can postpone a general, election remains
to be seen. When it is seen we shall know
when home rnle for Ireland is to begin. When
it does come the Irish nation will owe as much
for its coming to Patrick Egan as to any man
who ever lived.
Egan Makes Public the Letters on Which
the Frauds Were Based Innocent
Epistles Changed Into Dan
gerous Documents.
Lincoln, Neb., February 27. Mr. Pat
rick Egan has made publio a number of the
letters on which Richard Pigott founded
the clever forgeries which he sold to the
London Times, and which, formed the basis
of the "Parnellism and. Crime" articles in
that paper, leading up to the Parnell-Times
Commission and the exposure of the forger,
as given in yesterday's dispatches from
One of the principal forgeries, purporting
to have been written to Mr. P. J. Sheridan,

Mr. Parnell wrote Pigott in connection
with this same matter of the purchase of the
papers, as follows:

And out of this letter Pigott manufact
ured two letters purporting to be addressed
to Mr. Egan, using the same date, with the
exception of the last figure in the year,
transposing the language and filling out
with words traced from other letters.

The blackmailing letters which passed
between Pigott and Egan, concerning some
documents which the former threatened to
publish, are also given. These letters were
Erinted in The Dispatch of Eebruary 21,
aving been received by special cable from
It Claims to Have Been the Victim
LoNDOjr, February 28. The Times to
day, in a leading editorial, quotes in full
the apology tendered by Attorney General
"Webster before the Parnell Commission for
the publication of the forged letters, and
We desire to Indorse, as appropriate every
word of the foregoing statement. It is our
wish, as It is our duty, to do so. Moreover.
Mr. Parnell having in the witness box stated
that the letters are forgeries, we accept in
every respect the truth of that statement.
In these circumstances we deem it right to ex-
Eress our regret, most fully and sincerely, at
avlng been induced to publish the letters as
Mr. Parnell's or to use tbem in evidence against
him. This expression of regret includes also
the letters falselv attributed to Mr. Egan. Mr.
Davitt and Mr. O'Kelly. It is scarcely fitting
now to enter into the circumstances under
which we received and published tbem. We
are bound, however, to point out that Pigott
was not tbe person with whom we commnni-
Moreover. we must add that we firmly be
lieved tbe letters were genuine until the dis
closures made by Pigott on cross-examination.
It must be evident to all reasonable persons
that if a conspiracy existed the Times was vic
timized by, and not a party to it. Errors in
judgment may have been committed, and for
tbem the penalty mnst be paid. It must be
clearly understood that what we have dona Is
altogether upon onr own motions and onr own
responsibility, and in the pnblic interest alone.
This withdrawal, of course, refers exclusively
to tbe letters obtained from Pigott.
The Daily News says:
The Times tried to destroy Parnell. Parnell

The Times is no representative of the English
press. AVe do not hesitate to say that no other
English paper would have been capable of en
gaging in the abominable traffic which has led
the Times to such abyssmal depths of infamy.
