But it seems clear to us that this Is what the government proposes to attempt It is held by the correspond ent that the main purpose of in making the arrest at this is to prevent Dillon and you from making your contemplated trip to That does not seem a probable theory to replied But if it is the true one a more absurd calcula tion was never even by the present chief secretary for Far from preventing our appeal to he has made it for us in the most striking and impressive The story of these arrests will ring throughout America like a trumpet compared with which our voices would have been
