(Ininil Forks, April 18.-Tbe lirst
nun of the campaign, in the Rossland
Hiding, was fired here this evening,
whon an enthusinstlo meeting was
liuld in tho Opera House nnder tlm
nsapiceB ol tho loonl Liberal Conservative Association. They aduptod a
resolution endorsing without pnrty distinction, the ciuididntuio of Hon.C. H.
uVkintosh. A noteworthy lent nro
was tbe attendance of many prominent Liberals. H. S. Oayley, wbo
presided, paid a high tribute to tho
���worth of the Conservative candidates.
Iniong those on the plntform weie Dr.
Howes, Alex Sharpe, Mayoi A. 8.
Uoodeve and D. R. Bogle, of Rossland, Dr. Hayes, of Trail; Mr. Tobo,
of Eholt; Jeff Davis, J. W. McLaughlin and George Fraser, of Orand
Forks.
Dr. Howes, tho first speaker, reviewed the steps taken hy tho Rosslnnd
Conservatives to hold a convention
tbat, irrespective of party, would
seloot n suitable oandidate. Mr.
Mackintosh, he pointod out, while accepting, hnd disclaimed any intention
of conducting tho campaign on party
lines. Dr. Bowen said the record of the
Semliu Government was one of unfulfilled pledges and broken promises, before proceeding to disonss tho character nnd oareer of Hon. Joo Martin.
Continuing ho predioted thnt tho defeat of the present administration
meant the termination ot the presont
intolerable state of affairs nnd tho
dawn of a now era or prosperity.
Amidst applause, after briefly referring to the eiRht hour law and tho
successful operations of the contract
system iu Rosslaud, tbe speaker eulo-
sized the Hon. Mr. Mnckintosh. He
legrotted the nhuence of tho candidate,
who had boen oalled east with tbo object of raising cnpital for investment
in tho Boundary distriot.
Mayor Goodeve, of Rosslaud, followed. He deolared thnt tho failure of iu-
dividual government justified the
adoption of pnrty government with
certain limitations. The ::ien required
in pnliticnl life in tho Province at
this critical juncture were men of
piobity aud principle ; not individuals
animated witb no other motivo thnn
self interest. Ho characterized the
Hon. Mr. Mnrtin as a destructive politician, whose bungling laws hnd
bronght the Provinco to its piesent
plights. Whore order and prosperity
once reigned thero now existed uncertainty nud depiession. He criticized
the Martiu plntform declaring that
$!IU,000,OCO wonld be insuflicient to
carry It out. The railway policy
adopted by tho Premier nlso received
sweeping condemnation.

(BV ASSOCIATED 1'llllSS |
London April 10.���Lord Roberts'
oritioisma of General Buller, General
Warren and Colonel Thorneyoroft oon-
tinne to be the toplos of aoute interest. All tbe afternoon papers oomment
at length on the strictures'of the Commander in Chief in South Afrion
along the sume lines as tbe rooming
papers, praising Lord Roberts for his
frankness and Bpeoulating upon what
tho publication of the dispatches at the
present moment portend. Somo of
tbem ninuituiii nothing is left for General General Bnller bnt to resign.
In referring to Genoral Bailor's report the Bt. JiunoH Gazette is particularly southing. The Globe deolares
that a more pitiable reoord uf indecision in plan and confusion In execution we have seldom read," and adds
tbat what little reputation General
Buller bas left has been scattered to
tbe winds.
Practically no developments have
beeu reported ao far in today's Sonth
Afrioan cables. A dispatoh from War-
rentown, dated Tnesday, April 17,
says:
"Finding the Boers busy making
new trenches we exploded a few lyddite shells, following these np with the
Maxims. Tha enemy's ambulance waB
afterwards observed on the spot."
From Wepener there is nothing later
than Lord Roberts' message of yesterday and presumably neither side bas
gained any partioolar advantage at
any point in the theater of war sinoe
the last offioial dispatches were received.
The pnblioation of Lord Roberts'
despatch, describing tha Spion Kop
and other operations from Jannary
17th to Jannary a-lth, Is severely criticized by Mr. Spenoer Wilkinson in the
Morning Post today. He characterizes
it as ill-advised. "Tbe effeot of it on
the army in Natal," he Bays, "must
bo positively demoralizing, unless
great obanges are to be made in tbe
commands, changes whioh, if necessnry, shonld bave been made witbont
nny pieliminary publio ventilation of
mistakes and oensures.
"Since tbe pnblioation of Lord Roberts' despatch, the position of Sir Red-
vers Buller is untenable, and his resignation or reoall is a matter of course.
But tbe Government cannot be credited with arranging Ihe matter with
consideration or generosity. There
was no noed to trumpet these things
to the world. The despatches migbt
have slept in tbe archives for tbe nse
ot future history, and General Bnller's
recall migit have been arranged witb
diplomacy aud delionoy.
"General Bnller was appointed by
the Government and by tbe Government he should have been recalled
witbont exposure. Can it be said tbat
tbe Government shrinks from the
responsibility and seeks to shelter itself behind Lord Roberts, and behind
the expression of pnblic opinion whiob
the despatches are sure to oooajlon? If
tbat be tbe oase tbe Government is
certainly not setting an example to its
generals in tbe II dd The Governmeut
is in supreme command nud ought to
assert its authority witbont first appealing to the man in Ibe stroet."
Oommonting ou the same subject,
the Times said:
"Lord RobertB' sovore condemnation is justified only too olearly by
tbo official narratives of what took
place. The story is a paiuful one, bnt
it is well for the Nation and for the
army that it shonld be told clearly and
simply, witbont  conoealraent or exag
geration. It is not the least ol the
great services Lord Roberts ia now
rendering the country, that ho exposes
with judicial impartiality, and wise,
wholesome severity, orrors nud oiniss-
siouu in high quarters, which hnvo
oost ns so vory much. "
1 ii'ne 1 al Wnrren Bets forth the fnct
thnt the Spion Kop operations hnd not
entered into his original plans, us his
instructions woro lo occupy a plain
north of It. On consultation with tho
Commander in Chief, on January 21,
however, when the question of retiring
from or attacking Spion Kop was discussed, Wnrmi expressod his preference for attacking. This waa successfully aoompliBhed by General Wood-
gate. Then came the order of the
Commander in Chief to pnt Thorneyoroft in oommand of the summit. In
tbe meantime Wnrreu had sent Cokn
up to the forco with orders to asanme
oommand. Ineffeotunl efforts were
mado to heliograph Thorneycroft and
ask whether he had assumed command.
T. wards sunset he was finally enabled
to get ordors through and oonaluded
the position oould be held the next
dny, if guns could be provided and
shelter obtained. Both those conditions were abont to be fulfilled when,
"in the absence of Coke, whom I hnd
ordered to oome and report in person
ou the situation, the evacuation took
place, under orders given on his own
responsibility by Thorneyoroft. This
ooonrred In the face of vigorous protests of Coke's brigade and others."
In conclusion General Warren says:
"It iB a matter for the Commander
in Chief to deoide whether there will
be nny investigation into tho qnestion
of the unauthorized evacuation of
Spion Kop."

London, April 18.���The Bloemfontein correspondent of the Dnily Telegraph, in a despatch dated Wednesday,
says:
"It is hoped that tbe boisterous
weatber now prevailing may delay the
Boers and afford ns an opportunity of
capturing a number of raiding bands,
as only a few drifts are passable."
Maseru, April 17.���Colonel Dalgetty's casualties since he lias been be
seiged at Wepener bave been twenty

OANADIAN SPECIALS.
Ottawa, April 18,���A London apeoinl
letter, from Bennett Burleigh, dated
at Bloemfontein, and published in today's Telegraph, cites a case of real
hardship. A Canadinu soldier, ho
sayB, was conrtmnrtlalled and sentenced to 51! days hard labor for appropriating one Boer ohiokeu when
thousands who had committed tbe
name offense enoaped. There was con
siderable indignation in tho Canadian
camp over the affair.
��� Toronto, April 18.���Major Dent, of
the British Wnr Office remount de
partmer.t, who, it was announced ���
few days ago, had arrived hero for the
purpose of buying horsos for the Imperial nervi.-M iii South Africa, has

sent out agents to bin.in vnrions parts
of tho Dominion, a thousand oavnlry
horses, from fifteen hands 11^ inches

from 14.1 to 15.1. The animals will

(SPECIALS TO THK MINEIl.)
Ottawa, Out., April 18.���In reply to
Dechene, Blnir suid ia referenoe to
railwuy subsidies promised by the lnte
Government, previous to the last general eleotions, that ou tbe files in the
Privy Council there is a memorandum
of subsidies, amuunting to over eight
million dollars, but these were not
adopted by order in council, nor were
thoBeof over two million dollnrs which
were introduced and plnced before
Parliament during the first session of
180U. With tbe list of subsidies in the
Privy Counoil thoro was a note from
Dickey, who waB then Comptroller of
Inland Revenue. The note was to this
effeot: "Something like this will do,
I think. Tbere may be some blanks to
fill In with the names the company or
mileage, regarding which yon can
consult Ifnggnrt. "
There was also a copy of a printed
circular stating that owing to the obstruction by tho Opposition at the
Privy session, a subsidy to the railway
regarding whiob yon wrote me, bud
not been considered bnt was tukcu up
by the Cabinet. Blair said that tbere
was also evidence that a snbsidy had
been promised whiob did not appear
on tbe list, as one cf the many letters
wbioh had been writton by tbe Minister was addressed to E. Spencer in
regard lo the M. &. P. Railway Co.
The Government was, therefore, quit
justified in assuming that the subsidies
promised bv the late Government in
1808 were over 18,000,000.
Mr. Prior called attention to the
arrival of a large nnmber of Japanese
on the Paoiflo Coast, as reported in
the morning newspapers.
Premier Laurier said that the Government made a difference between
Chinese and Japanese. The Government approved of restrictions on tbe
OhineBe and as soon as Mr. Cartwright
was tho House a bill would bn iutro-
lnced on tbe subject. For Imperial
reasons no action bad been tukuu in
respect to Chinese immigration.
In reply to Mr. Wilson, Mr. Fisher
said tbat tbere was a building at the
Paris Exposition for the use of British
Colonists, a portion of which wns set
apart for Canadians. Tho proportion
which Canada wonld havo to pay
wonld he $82,7311. There was nlso a
building at Vmcennes which cost cost
Cannda $5,000, and the special addition
to the Colonial building would cost
$1,050 for the oold storage plant and
$1,250 for further office accommodations, making a total of $00,4811. Abont
$15,000 or $10,000 would have to be
paid for space among tbe Imporinl exhibits.
In answer to Oliver Dr. Borden said
tbat the loss of so many borsos belonging to Strathcona's Horse was n mat
ter wbioh the Government wns In no
way responsible for, as Dr. McEncbron
was seleoted by Lord Strathcona to do
this work of selection. Tho men of
Strathcona's Horse would receive Imperial rates ot pay. There would bo
no separation allnwanco, as the force
wns made of np of unmarried men.
Replying to Mr. Olnrk, Dr. Borden
��� aid tbat the Department of Militia
wns taking steps to furnish jerseys
aud underclothes to tho Caundiun
troops at the front. An to the sucond
part of the question, Dr. Borden suid
tho Government bad no knowledge
why the forward movement of troops
under Lord Roberts could not bo made.
(Laughter.)
Mr. Monk, on a motion to adjourn
tbe Honse, read a report of what Mr.
Tarte was made  to say while in Lon
don on Canadian affairs, and also tbe
alleged Interview which nppenred in a
French newspaper ill Paris, and endeavored to make the point that there
wiih a difference between tho two, the
one in London being strongly Hritish,
while iho the one in Paris minimized
whnt the Government did iu regard to
sending tho contiuguut to Sonth
Afrioa, Mr. Monk also insinuated
that Mr. Tarte was shamming illness.
Premier Lanrier said thnt wbutever
might bo the faults of Mr. Tarte, no
one ever licensed him of a lack of courage. It, would have beon more courageous on thn part uf Mr. Monk if be
hnd waited until Mr. Tnrte'B return
and then il wonld be found ont how
much truth thero was iu tho artioles
in tho foruign press. All that he asked
for Mr. Tarte was that justice and fair
play which ought to be extended to
every mombor of the House.
Mr. Fielding said thnt he had not
yet got the consent of Trinidad to
make publio tho part of the correspondence regarding tbe trade nego-
tiutions between tbo Island and Canada, and therefore he would have to
delay tho announcement he intended
making today.
Campbell (Kent) resumed   budget.
Ottawn, April 18.���A large deputation from Toronto waited on the Government todny to nsk a grant of one
111.'ii and dollars to hold an exhibition.
Sir Wilfrid said that tho Cabinet
would have to take aotion in the matter. He would, however, promise
them ."\ inpaili 'in- and earnest consideration Tho Government was called
extravagant through trying to assist
such 'in,'rpn.HcH,"mid he hoped tbat if
it did give assistance in tbis ��se they
would see that the Government was
not called extravagant,
Montreal, April 18.���Word reaobed

left for the front. Sir Charles Rosa is
under Lord Look's command and is at
tho bead of 100 men and fonr Colt

Winnipeg, Man., April 18.���Premier

oity.
Ottawa, April 18.��� Johnston Ti.
Kirk, nn appeal from tho British Columbia Conrts to the Supreme Court,
which involved a disputo as to the
title of somo land, was dismissed.
Edward Skeid has taken aotion to
recover $1110 against Dr. Aubrey, of
Hull. This amount was given to Aubrey as a part of $1,000 commission
which wns to go to him if he succeeded iu selling the Moore homestead,
which belonged to Mrs. Skeid, to be
nsed as a bospilul. Tbo price was to
be $17,000. Dr. Aubrey did not sno-
oeed in selling, und snys tbo money
was to seiiii .��� the election of nldermen
favorable to the hospital scheme.
Montreal, April 18.���The fight be
iweeii the Cigar Makers' Association
and tbe striking and locked out oigar
makers wns declared off this afternoon.
Mr. lln ii has given out the following
statement: 'Owing to tlm support,
which was promised us yesterday, not
having moteiializod, wo have notified
Messrs. Harris, Younghenrt & Co. nud
Goulet Bros., who unm to our assistance Inst Snturday, that wo releaae

and In cnnae'|uonce their faotorjss will
roopen tomorrow with their former
employees. A committee of nuion
men was at our ollleo thiB afternoon,
when nil mutters were amioably settled. "
He waived the apprentice qnestion,
which wus the chief contention of the
union.
The latest development in connection
with tho Bonscoours Market soandal
is tbe ndmissiou of ex-Chief Clerk
Germain Tessier that be bad to pay
the nm of $1,1100 in order to get the

USURPATION OF AUTHUKlTV.
Mayor Houston says ho is the "re-
sponslbe office! of the corporation."
Iu proof of this ho quotes from the
Muuicipnl Clnuses Act: "Tho Mayor
or Koeve Bhnll havo unrestricted authority and power to inspect nnd order
tho conduct of all ollicers and employees of the Corpora tinn, and to direct
the method of management of the
Corporation business nnd affairs, and
to suspend the ollicers nnd employees, "
eto.. etc. From Mr. Houston's remarks
on this, oarefullly reported in full in
bis own paper, it is clenr that ho ro-
gurds himself as superior to tbe Counoil nud in no manner or degree subjeol
to its control. From other remarks
mnde nud roported it would also uppenr
thnt throe members of the Oonnoil are
under a like impression.
Wo   nre sure that this interpretation
of tbe Act ifl   very fnr indeed from doing justice to the intention of   it.    As
Mayor Mr.HouBton ishend of tho Couuoil, and hns certain duties nnd powers
and responsibilities ;butthe Legislature
in defining   these iu the general terms
qoutod never   intended that he  should
be independent   of   the   Council   nnd
superior to it.    He has power of direction and control, precisnly as any othor
presiding   ofiicer, bnt he   is subject ro
the superior authority of   the Council.
Mr. Shaaghnessy, as   President of   the
Canadian Pacifio Company, bus greater
powor iu  direotion   and   control   thnn
any  Mayor, but he is  subject  to  the
superior authority of   the Board of Directors aud they of   the   shareholders.
The head of  a corporation, whether of
n mnnioipality or a railway, is  necessarily  invested with   general powor of
supervision    and    management,    but
neither  nn   Act of tbe Legislature   in
the oue   case   nor   tho  bylaws of  the
Company in the   other  ever   intended
thnt   this iiuthoi iiv shall  bo   nbsulute.
No one questions Mr.  Houston's   right
to"inspeot nnd order the conduct of all
officers   and   employees."     Some one
must do it, nud In mere matters of nd-
ministration   it   is impossible tbnt nil
the members of   the Council cun   tnke
part in suoh work.   This  duty in   the
chbb of a   mnnioipality is vested in the
Mayor or Reeve, and it  in  so invosted
beonuBo it is un individual  mutter nnd
therefore   moro   convenient,     lint   in
every step ho tnkes ho in responsible to
the Conncil.   If  he   diBinissos nn employee  tho Counoil can  reinstate him.
The Aot is   caroful to say that he cunnot dismiss an ofiicer; ho can only sns
peud him, and   the  limitation   is   the
clearest possible evidence  Hint the Aot
intends   ho   shull   be   subject   to   the
superior authority   of the Council.
Dr. Arthur's resolution was quite
within tlm rights of tho Conncil, and
it is a most surprising thing that any
Aldermnn should have questioned it.
Whether it wns expedient Is another
matter. It may be tbnt in Nelson tin
pecnliur nnd thn unusual are the correct
things, lu other municipalities Mayors
do not mako themselves so cheap
ns to go nosing nhoi I and inlnrferng
in every little mutter thut crops up.
Tho employment of Corporation labor-
en is left whero It pinporly belongs,
with the Committee of Public Works.
If tho Chairman of that Committee
chooses to take tho burden ou his own
shoulders he mny do so, but it ih usually passed over to tho City Engineer,
who, with the foremen, employ whatever help is required. It is n morn detail of administration, nnd M lyors
who hnvo a proper sense of the dignity
of thoir ollice do not meddle wilh it
boyond the genernl Supervision necessary to gunrd against nbnso. Nelson's
Mayor, however, taken a different
view, lie hns filled himself wilh the
notion that ho is greater than the
Conncil and cnn defy it. By nature n
bully and blusterer and loving power.
he delights in displays of tho superior
authority he ignorantly arrogates ro
himself. It can bo said of tho Counoil that submits to snoh vulgar tyranny
that   it  des, rvea all   the   humiliation
that is heaped upon it.
Tho issue of the eleation, in the estimation of The Greenwood Dnily
Times, is not so mncb Mr. Martin as
thu Lieutenant Governor. "The Federal Government," it snys, "have
placed tho issue heforo tho electors of
Hritish Oloumbla. Sir Wilfrid Lanrier
regards tho Mclnnes letter of explanation as Inadequate, and ho has asked
the Liouteuuut-Govoruor to explain in
particular why, ufter dismissing the
Ministers with seats in tho Legislature, he should ohooso those without
scuts or oxporienoe. Ottawa regards
the action of the Lientenaut-Qovornor
as subversive of Parliamentary government und outside onr system of carrying on public affairs, If tho eleotora
endorse the action of thu Lieutenant-
Governor, the hands of tho Fedornl
Government are tied, and thoy can do
nothing in tho direction of punishing
a man who has shown n totul disregard
(or constitutional practice. On tho
other hand, if the people defeat Martin at tho polls, thou the Ottawa Government is free to dismiss the man
wbo plunged tho Province into tho
present; political quagmire. The fato
of the Provinoe rests with tho people.
It is for them to sny whether they
wnul liberty or an autoornciv," All
this is quite true. It is vory essential, if wo aie lo hnve pence and pros-
peiity in the Province thnt Mr. Marin should be dofentcd on his own
nccount. To vindicate the principles
of responsible government, however, it
is neoesiary to defent Mr. Mnrtin in
order to reach the Lieutenant-Governor, tho greater offender of the two.
"I hnve probably put uu a dozen on
the street gangs since work commenced," suid Mnyor Houston at the
last Council meeting. This is intended
to convey tho impression that he has
been moderate in exercising his"nn
restricted authority," nnd that he has
not employed more thnn a dozen men.
Several dozens have been engaged;
who employed the others? Mr. Houston should ascertain, and punish with
his severest resentment this interference with his "unrestricted authority. '' We suspeot, however, tbat His
Worship's memory is failing bim. He
employed nearly around dozen of those
miners who were persnaded to oome
on to Nelson from the Enterprise mine
several months ago, and put them to
work on Victoria Street, although
there were residents in plenty wbo
were anxions for employment. He bas
employed many others since. The
truth is that Mr. Honstou has been
using his authority as Mayor in tbis
connection with the view of strengthening himself as a candidate in Mr.
Murtin's interest nt tbe next Provincial oleotiou. A Mayor who would bo
prostitute bis offloe deserves the cheok
intended by Dr. Arthur's resolution
the other night, and the Council failed
most lamentably in its duty in not
carrying it.

GAUNTLET THROWN DOWN
The Mayor Suspends the City Engineer
and a fight Is Now On.
As an outcome of tho dispute ho
tweon the Mayor nnd somo of tho Al-
orinon over the alleged notion of the
Mnyor in assuming solo coin roi of the
city's business and ignoring the counoil, Mr. Houston yesterday practically
suspended the city engineer. The aotion he took is not fully nnderstoood
an Iho city  engineer   and  others fully
conversant with what took plane positively refused to talk to Tho Miner
regarllng tbe inoident. However,
yesterday   Assistant   Oity  Euglneer
Dill wns given full control of till the
work ou the streets which wus formerly under the superintendent)' of Mr.
MoCnllooh, At tho council meeting on
the previous evening Mr. McOollooh,
whim qnestloned  i>v  the Aldermen,
snid that the mnyor hnd directed that
certain work ho done oontrnry to the
oity engineer's instructions from the
council.
Tho notion of the mnyor praotioally
amounted to the throwing down of Ihe
aanntlet to the oonnoil. His Worship
hns ways of his own that do not moot
with tho favor of the council nnd it
hns long heen apparent that a crisis
must arrive. Oity Engineer MoOulloch
hns tho full conlldi'iice of the council
nnd the mayor ovidcntly wns well
ntfino ol this when ho acted ns ho did,
ho his aotion was undoubtedly aoluate'd
by a dosiro lo hnve a full understanding before matters went nny fnither.
The aldermen will certainly not nllow
Mr. MoOalloob to be interfered wilh,
us he hns alwnyf proved one of the
most ellicient officials in the employ of
tbe city and hns done his work in a
manner which compelled tho respect
of snecesdve councils nnd the public.
A special meeting of tho counoil mny
be held to reinstate Mr. MoOulloch or
the matter may go ovor until the
meeting of the counoil next Tuesday
evening. In nny ovent tho mnyor bus
jnvitod the oonnoil to cress swords
with him nud the aldermen nro quite
prepared to outer tho lists. It is Mr.
McOnlloch's unfortunate position tbnt
lie has been mnde the bono of contention.

Miss Oxense, matron of the City

to the Hoard of Directois of thut institution and it will bo noted upou nt

attended to her duties. To her, as
much ns to uiiyono else, is due tho
credit of tho splendid condition of
Oity Hospitnl iiffairs nt the present

will be mourned by mnuy of the patients there, particularly those of the

While W. J. Astley was rowing up

managed to mnke them stop by waving his puddle. He snys he oan't sny

BRIEF LOCALS.
All Liborals aro requested to attend
the adjourned mooting at Fraternity
Hull thiH evening at 8 o'olook to receive tho reports of delegates to the
Vancouver convention. Also for tho
olectiou of ollicers for tho ensuing
year.
Thoro was a most suooessful joint
rehearsal of chorus, wist and orchestra
of tho opera Pinuforo at tho Opera
House lust night. The reheui'snl went
very smoothly and thero woro few
blemishes to correct. The ooiiipnny is
a strong one, numbering seventy people. The orchestra ih composed of 1-1
pieces aud are Jwoll trained nnd play
well. Tbo costumes havo arrived and
nre all that wore Bxpeoted, The plan
for seats will open^Mnnduy.
Ou Kootenay Streot, nonr Viotoria,
oau be aeon an example of the sort of
oity work thnt, is not finished oven
when completed for tho lirat time.
Paradoxical but true. The work in
question wns done when the sidewnlk
wuh reduced to grade nnd consisted of
making a perpendicular cut where Ihe
earth was taken away to bring the
pluce to grade. Owing In thut method
n perpendionlai bunk, about lour feet
high, rises directly front the edge of
the new sidewalk. Tho bank is of soft
earth nnd in cart hns a fenue directly
at its edge. At tho first ruin* it will
probably slide down and carry the
fence with it, thns depositing several
cubic vurda of earth on the sidewalk,
Had tho cut been a sloping one this
could not occur.
Jerry Robillard bas handed to The
Miner a copy nf a letter written IK)
yenis ago to Lord Piilmorsmn. then
Prime Minister, by Dr. Cahill. In
the letter is a prophecy which seems
now about to be fulfilled: "My
Lord: Tho day will come, under the
secret nnd chemical operation of a
broader civilization, on which the
truo worth of my people will he recognized and acknowledged. Strange and
fnncifnl ns tho pictuio mny now seem.
I behold a period ndown the slopes of
luturitv when the Green will be honored iu tho very hulls nf yonr legislature, tho shamrock will decorate the
breast of yonr military, nnd tho very
sovereign of the renlm will he inspired
with a lovo for and n confidence in
tho Irish people. I will not live to
behold it, uo moro will you, My Lord,
nud Ireland has OOUDtless trials to undergo, reverses to meet, before thnt
goal is renched, bnt ns certain ns the
mm will rise over the hill of Howth
nnd aot beyond the heights of Conner-
marn, so auroly will the genius of the
lace one dny receive the homngu of
the British psople. The sword of Elizabeth, the ouiiunii of Cromwell, the
statutes of tho Pale will be relegated
to tho barbarism whence they drew
their existence, nnd a grander impulse, seizing upon the people nf England, will throb through every voin
aud nrtory of her wonderful Empire,
In that hour the visions of lrisli
statesmen will bo realized, tbe
propheoies of IriBh bards will be fulfilled, the prayers of tho Irish martyrs
will bo granted nnd centuries of
wrong will bo swallowed up In the
whirlpool of euthusinsm thnt my
country's enemies shall experience nt
mention of her natno, or at sight of
the green Ehararock of Erin."
