InK. We will run these car shops."
.said Muster Car Huthier li. T. Canlleld,
of tli llolawaic, Iaekawaniiii and
AVeatcrn Itnilroad company, to a Trib
une man yesterday morning and thu
I'lnplmslH which ho laid upon the "will"
showed that he meant exactly what
.Saturday noon about five hundred
and ilfty of the men employed at the
car, pattern, blacksmith and paint
shops went out on strike after o com
mittee lepresentlnir them had waited
upon Mr. Canlleld. The latter declares
they submitted no local grievances
which they desired adjusted, but meie
ly demanded the lelnstatement of an
employed at Dover shops named Hicks.
The men claim that the latter was
discharged Thursday for acting as the
reptesontatlves of the Dover men at
ii meeting here last Wednesday to dis
cuss the nine hour day question. On
his return to Dover and discharge
the Dover employes struck and at a
meeting of the Scranlon men held Fri
day night it was decided to follow
suit unlet-s Hicks was taken back.
Master Car Huilder Canlleld. however,
gives a difl'ctent version. Said he yes
terday: "flicks was suspended indefinitely for
violation of two of the company's rules,
one of -which is the taking absence
without leave, while the other Is also
a very grave offense and which is lived
up to very strictly by us. When the
men saw me they asked Ills leinstato
ment and brought forward no other
grievances of any other nature. We do
not propose to lot any one man or body
of men dictate to us any one point
relating to the management of out
works. There is nothing in the report
that complaints were made by the
men to me of Foreman Smith."
Mr. Canfield declared that the men
at Hnffnlo had not yet gone out and
lire difficulties were confined to (be
four hundred and fifty men al Dover
and those here. The nine hour day
demand, which Is one of the grievances
of the men under Master Car Builder
Canlleld, was formally presented at
his oillfo Tliui'Mhiy during his absence
from the i It v.

ADDRESS OF MAUD OONNE AND
Representatives of the Irish Revo
lutionary Party Speak to a Large
Audience in St. Thomas College
Hall They Believe in Preparing
to Fight England nt the Very
Next Recurrence of an Opportu
nity, Such as Was Afforded by the
SI. Thomas' CollcKe hull was uiowd
ed to overllowlng Inst night, to hear
Miss Mutid Gonnc and Major John Mc
Urlde, the champions of the Irish
Revolutionary party, who are touring
America to win syupathy and sub
stantial as!staneo for the cause they
espouse. The audience was as enthus
iastic ns It was large, and tho speeches
In consequence wen; accompanied
throughout by applause that at' times
could be ttuly termed tumultuous. M.s
poclally was this true during Major
Mclirlde's recital of the deeds of his
Irish brigade in tlio fight against the
British in the Transvaal, and his de
clarations Hint thousands of Just such
men us so badly bothered the itiltish
In South Africa, were ready to repeat
their dticds for li eland on Irish soil.
With Miss limine there Is no mincing
of words us lo how sin; would bring
about the redress of Ireland's griev
ances. Her platform can be com
pressed into tho one word, "war." As
briefly outlined In the interview she
acocrded a Tribune man Friday, and
given at length In her address last
night, Miss Con no's plan of campaign
Is this: Have the Irish prepare for
active warfare, and, when next Eng
land becomes embroiled In a war with
some big nation, let the Irish swoop
down upon what remnant of the Brit
ish army may be left In Ireland, drive
It out, establish a government, and
then, as an ally of the British enemy,
whoever It may bo, demand that the
guarantee of Ireland's freedom be a
part ot tho treaty ot peace.
This, or rourse, Is taking for granted
that England will be worsted. Miss
Cioune and hoi partisans am confident
this will eventuate. They argue that
England is shown to be weak and that
any good-sized nation, with the aid
oi the Irish, ran bring her to her
As she put it iiijier addiess last
night: "if 10.000 Boer farmers are
more than a match for 2.10,000 British,
what could not a big- government ac
complish against her!"
FIGHT'S THE THING.
Miss Gonnc is almost elenuclatorj in
her tratment ot the parliamentary
movement. "No people over won fie
dom fiom a tyrant nation except by
light." she declared. "Arms, not
breath, will free II eland, if site is ever
The reaction against tho Parliamentary-
movement has already set in,
she anlu, U the last elecilons, not
over' one-half tho Irish voters took the
tiouble to go lo the polls, and the
suppoiteis of the Parliamentary party
cannot se'cure. large meetings anywhere
Ii eland, she said, is in immediate
nnd desperate need of help. During
the lelgu of Queen Victoria tlio popula
tion was reduced one-hnlf, or from
iU'OO.onu to -t.r.00,000, and nearly L',000,
000 of lbe.--e died from famine, though
their country would be a country of
plenty if it were not for the economic
conditions brought by England's pol
icy of denationalizing tin; Island to
make It refuge for hor own .surplus
population. Over 3,00lr.00n people weie
driven from home in the name of
England's gracious queen.
Miss Gonne told some harrowing
tales of evictions and famine suffering
witnessed by her own eyes, and said:
"AH this time there wete eighty Trlsh
Nationalists In the house of parlia
ment. Day after day they talked about
the Irish famine and after all their
talk the only satisfaction they received
was this comment of Balfour: 'Do j-ou
expect us to furnisn champagne for
Irish peasants'." Gladstone wns prime
minister. Moiley was Irish secretins',
and tlm Liberals were lu the maiority
with the aid of the Irish vote!
"Ireland bus no lime to waste on
talk. She cannot afford to lose another
opportunity like thai of last year, when
the -whole British furcn In Ire-land, out
side of the constabulary, consisted of
only S.,000 militia, recruited from tlte
scum of English ijilies. and neither
physically or morally fitted to bo sol
diers. But wo were not prepared, be
muse for thirty yeais we had depended
on breath, instead of nuns.
"In Parnell wo had n wonderful
parliamentarian and ho had almost un
limited llnnnolnl aid from this country,
but what was accomplished'.' .Next to
nothing, Tlio few amendments tn the
agrarian laws wore sectiied by the
Land league when Hie Movolutlonlsts
wore nt Its head and when an Irish
landlord's llf was not Insurable, Bents
imve been reduced, ii Is true, hut this
wns dun to ihe fall in at'ilctiltur.il
prices, and, as the jit ices fell in greater
proportion llinu the deeieaso in louts,
the lilsh ni worse off limn bufoie."
John Medmond, iho leader of tlm
Parllamontrtiy puil.v, came in for somo
Hither saicastic treatment at .Miss
Gonne's hands. She quoted fiom one
of his speeches, in which ht declared
that the Irish Nationalism wore in a
position to contiol and Initiate legisla
tion, mil) then described tliu jecent epi
sode III the house of commons, when
tliu Irish membeis were carried out
bodily by the police for attempting to
"contiol and Initiate legislation."
Speaking of the churges madoagalust
hep In the Irish World, that Mm Is sow
ing dissension among tho Irish, Miss
fionno said she, was mlsundertooil, Na
tional unltj, she declared, docs not
menu, necessarily, Identity of opinion.
Tho Irish are a united people, Just us
tho French, the Germans or the Anierl
cans are united, though they Imve their
dissenting paitles. The h-iiI daugei is
not dilfercnces of opinion, t,ho went on
to i-ny, but mud-throwing, and she did
not hesitate to charge up this sort of
thing to the editor of tho Irish Woild
and his friends among Uib Nationalists.
"Wo nio all agreed that England's
dlillculty Is liuland'H opportunity," said
Miss Gonne. "Tho Constitutionalists
say, 'Ho loyal and, out of gratitude,
England will glvo yy homo rule.' We
suj, 'Arise and light." Wo ate. dlauiet.
rlcally opposed as to policy, is It well

After uu earnest plea, for help for the
Itevolutionaiy cause. Miss Gonne con
cluded: "It may be within a. fw
months: it may be- a few years, but
tho opportunity is not far off. England
has 'bei-n Blabbing lands all over the
world. Other nations Imve sufCeiod hoi
to do this because they thought her in
vincible. The Boer war showed her to
bo a lotteu and worn-out enipite Ihat
no ono need fear any nvoie. Any na

does, Ireland must be ready to rise. The
