an adventurer who has made the most out of them that he could during his brief residence in the town Many poor men subscribed to help him locate in the village thinking the big silk mill would help the interests of the town But the mill was ruo in a slack manner as but few hauds were employed and the boom that the town was promised never came In the light of recent revelations it is easily

Dillon the Irish leaders have been for some time making speeches in differ ent parts of Ireland advising the tenants to refuse to pay their rent and although this is a violation of the crimes act the government seemed td be indifferent to their actions Consequently when the two men were arrested yesterday and taken to TJpperary to answer H charge of con spiracy It was something of a bombshell n the ranks of the Nationalists It vrai immediately asserted that the govern ments object was to prevent the depart ure of the two men to the United where they were going to raise funds to be used in electing Home Rule men to fllrliamont Something of a This may have had some little weight In the matter but Is not balieved to have had much OBriens last trip through America and Canada did not have suffi cient effect in evoking Illfeeling against England or In swelling the contributions to the Irish campaign funds to justify any great apprehensions as to the result of expected tour and the state ment may be made in reference to former American journeys of Dillon asd Red mond Parnell Counting on American Money Parnell however has been counting npon great results from the proposed American stumping tonr as he is nerv ously anxious to have a large fund raised for the important elections of 1891 and It is thought possible that he will go to the states and deliver a series of appeals himself If OBrien Dillon and others who had expected to go are imprisoned or kept at home by legal proceedings Many Nationalists think these arreits will have the effect to open the American purse and though surprised they are not atall discouraged It ia quite probable that OBrien aud Dillon will cet the ex ent of the months injail and it s stated that warrants are out for the arrest of several other Irish leaders Will Come Over aa Substitutes The Parnellites anticipate a general raid following yesterdays arrests with a view of suppressing the league in all di rections Parnell has arranged for an early meeting of his followers in London T P OContior and James J OKelly will probably take the berths on the Teutonic engaged for OBrien and Dil on Comment of tha London Press The Times says that the only cause for surprise is that the arrests have been so ong delayed The resolute net ion of the government will be eagerly welcomed by all clearheaded friends of civil order The Standard says the coup was admir bly managed and the secrecy maintained prevented the accused from exercising heir wellknown skill in opportune dis ippeanmce The Daily News says that Balfour has ommltted an not of stupendous folly for vhich it is difficult to assign a rational motive The Telegraph justifies the arrests as he Parnellites were becoming more dar ng ia the face of the supposed supineness f
