John Fitzpatriek, "of New Orleans, was
the referee. He is an honest man, but he is
not fully posted on the rules of the London

toward Kilrain, who went down repeatedly

tSrECtil. TILECEAM TO THE DISrATCH. 1
NEW Oeleans, July 8. The trip from
New Orleans to the ring was quite event
ful. Before the trains left the city limits
an attempt was made to clear them of the
deadheads who, crowded their roofs and
trucks. Many of those put off were very
vengeful, and they fired a number of shots
at the engineer of the train. This caused
the passengers to duck and scramble as close
to the floor of the cars as possible. Not less
than IS or 20 shots were fired, and that some
one was not hurt was a little short of mira
culous. The Attorney General of the State, the
Assistant Adjutant General, and several
other State officials accompanied the train
as far as Slidell, to see that the promise that
the fight did not take place in IiOUisana
was faithfully kept When they left, Bud
Benaud sent bis regards to the Governor
and bis assurance of distinguished consid
erations. All Allowed Free Ride.
After passing the 28-mile trestle over
Lake Pontchatrain, it was discovered that
at least three dozen men were hanging on
the trucks, in momentary danger of falling
off and being killed, and the train was
stopped and they were permitted to get on
in regnlar fashion by kind-hearted Bud
Benaud. Sullivan and Kilrain bad given
the authorities the slip early in the day,
and they were probably just as well pleased
that their jurisdiction didn't extend far
enough to warrant them stopping the train,
with some of the most prominent men of
Louisiana and Mississippi aboard, to say
nothing of the Northern and Western dele
gates. Some persons say that the train was
flagged, but if this is so the engineer utter
ly disregarded the signal and continued his
way through forbidden territory.
At the Peep of Dar.
When the morning was light enough to
observe objects as they passed in succession
here and there, a lagoon with its rank vege
tation and still water interspersed with
dense forests of pine trees blazed for turpen
tine, the only product of the country that
keeps the Mississippian's body and soul to
gether, looking like so many ghosts on a
frolic as they danced past, shining white
and weird in the dim light of early morn
ing. A glance out of the window revealed coat
tails floating in the breeze in long rows the
entire length of the train. Despite Captain
Jamiesen's vigilince there were hundreds
of men beating their war on the trains, and
one young desperado, who evidently feared
nothing, was astride the hog chain, or iron
rod which runs from end to end of a rail
road car just outside of the, line of the
wheels, lying flat on his stomach.
Grasping- tho Iron Rod Firmly
with both hands, and with feet locked
securely above the bar that man had ridden
for four hours straight without a change of
position. His was only a single case.
As soon as Bud Benaud heard that lie
was carrying several hundred passengers
that were not swelling the receipts, he seized
the bell cord and stopped the train. In
stantly there was a wild scamper for the
cover of the pine trees, but the manager
shouted: "Come back and get on the train,
and ride like white men. I don't want any
body killed." It was then found that the
top of every car was jammed, and many re
mained there, as there was no room for them
All along the route the natives gathered
at the small way stations and looked won
deringly at the procession of bad men. As
they whirled cast them, little children
clasped their hands frightened, the sight of
too many cars and the cheers of the passen
gers being new to them.

came back, expressing his opinion about

in two, pull one section to a switch five
miles away and return for the other.

man grabbed a campstool, and before the

were there to show the way to the sawmills.

the ring was pitched, while Kilrain took

phitheater, the second or inner ring holding'
those who had paid SIS for their tickets,
while the $10 men occupied the seats which
rose tier above tier from the ground back of
the inner ring to the height of 15 feet The
representatives of the press bad 30 seats to
the east of the ring proper, and sat with
their backs to the sun, and where they

pines were too high to cast much of a shade,
but the branches were none too far removed
from the grounds to keep dozens of men and

a most orderly, well-behaved gathering, and
there was little impatience manifested until

man, in whom all had confidence. He was

was received with cries of "Nol No I"

HER AGEBTS' METHODS EXPOSED
Bj an Irish Priest and by a Leading Her
chant of Balmullet.
Castle Garden, as It Sow Exists, an EtII to tie
Edward Stepbenson, Commissioner of
Emigration, at New Xork, has secured
from an Irish merchant a description of how
the British Government covertly aids peo
ple to emigrate to America, through one of
its departments, and thereby defeats the tt
forts of another. Commissioner Stephenson
describes Castle Garden as a real aid to
israelii txlxobav to tub DisrjtTcn.t
New York, July 8. In London corre.
spondence of June 9 facts' were .stated about
the methods that prevail' On the western
coast of Ireland which, to quote the words
of the correspondent, "might interest tha
Commissioners of Emigration in New
York." It was stated that Erris, in County
Mayo, had been placarded with posters re
questing persons desirous of emigrating to
America to apply to Emigration Agent
Bourke. There were many applications,
and Bonrke selected 100 of tho poor
est and most worthless families
of the population for transportation.
A hitch arose which compelled
hira to give up the idea of sending them
over in a body, and he hit upon the plan of
shipping them al the rate of one family a
week, his method being to put one man in
as tbe head of the family and to send a lot
of others as his children and relatives. This
statement was made on the authority of the
Rev. Henry Heuson, the parish priest,
whose word was corroborated by Hr. John
S. Murphy, a leading merchant Commis
sioner of Emigration Edmund Stephenson,
of this city, at once wrote to the Kev. Mr.
Henson and to Mr. Mnrabv. staline tha
substance ot tbe article, and requesting their
personal statement as to the truth of tha
JOns EtTLt'S WICKEDNESS.
Mr. Stephenson took the precaution not to
mention that he was one of the commission
ers of emigration, fearing that if he did so
he would get no reply. He has just re-
celved an answer from Mr. Murphy, dated
Balmullet, June 27, Mr. Murphy writes:
The poorest and most worthless class arc
sent from this place on what is termed "the
free emigration," by what is called here tho
emigration commission. The commission is,
I believe only nominal; it is embodied In tha
Serson of the gentleman you mention as Mr,
urke, who was formerlv vice-guardian of
Balmullet union. He has had a great numbir
of very poor families undoubtedly poor in
some cases on bis list and from that list are)
selected small batches who are sent off weekly
via Londonderry. Of coarse if sent in large)
batches there might bo some difficulty in their
being allowed to proceed on. your side without
means. What Is still more strange, tbe Gov
ernment gires loans to these poor people, who
live on the coast, to enable them to follow tho
fishing Industry, which. If properly developed,
would be a source of wealth and employment
to tha country. These loans are given on tho
security of two otter persons who sign promis
sory notes to the Hoard of Works, to loan by
installments, including interest every half
year. This is an encouragement to tbe people
to stay at home and be Industrious, but while
one Government department Is fulfilling lt3
function in this respect, another Government
department offers inducements to these Tery
people by free emigration toleavo tho country,
and by so doing ot course "
1EAV1NO THEIE SECUBITrES
in for tbe amount These latter are proceeded
against and, I cannot help saying, properly
so for the recovery of these installments, and
thus wo have It tbat the honest industrious
man who remains at home and who has tried
to benefit bis neighbor by going security for
him to tbe Government, is made a victim of
throuebthe inducements to emigrate offered
by the same Government to a man who proves
himself, by so acting, dishonest. This is, in
fa ct, a premium to the rogue." I am awaro
that tbe Government fishery Inspectors
have remonstrated with the Emigra
tion Committee against sending away
any man connected with these
loans unless be first redeems them, but all to
no purpose. I am also aware tbat Sir Thomas
Brady made even this year an ineffectual re
monstrance against a man being sent away on
this tree emigration to whom he bad a few
months before mado a loan out of a charitable
fund at his disposal, probably to sell his land
or pay his rent, lie mignt as well nave re
mained silent, although there are hundreds of
people wbo, without small loans given freely
by this eentleman. would have been lmates of
the workhouse, and, once In, lost forever. X
am verytespectf ally yours,
"Jomr S. Mubpht."
"There is a systematic movement on the
part of the European Governments to dump
their paupers on our soil," said Commis
sioner Stephenson. "Since the protest on
the part of our Government of 1884 their
movement has been conducted secretly, bnt
not without success.
CASTLE OAEDEX AX EVTI..
Last year, according to the report of the
Commissioners of Emigration, out of some
380,000 who landed at Castle Garden, only
601 were sent home, which is less than the
number who were returned the preceding
year. The commissioner did, however, pay
the return fare of about 600 others, who, if
they had remained, wonld have become a
burden to the country. So far as Castle
Garden Is concerned the country would be
better off if it were wiped out of exist
ence. Castle Garden is a cover.
It is not as it used to
be. Formerly the people had
a chance to see what sort of emigrants were
landing on our shores, but to-day those
emigrants are taken charge of by agents
immediately on their arrival and sent to re
mote parts of the country. The people are
not alive to tbe question, and the very clerks
in the garden are between two fires on the
one hand, the Presidents of the Irish Emi
gration Society and of the German Society,
of New York, each of whom has a full vote
in the board, and on the other handn the
State Commissioners, whose duty it is to
enforce the law. I think it is high time
that the public should acquaint themselves
with these facts."
