appears in tbe Buffalo Catholic Union of Thursday last According to we publish in this weeksUuion the name of our in formant for the statement we recently made regarding James As may be seen from the appended our authority was none other than Lawrence of the national treasurer of he Irish Land of the United What especially startled us in tbe reverend gentlemans disclosure was tbe party named as his who one of Parnells most intimate friends1 and who doubtless must baa good reason for the trouble and expenseof jyatch ing Father Walshs letter ia notas direct could have We feel obligation of secrecy initbe explicitly then Stephens was for bouri9losetedwith JhfiJBritish CohsnL so to this one of cells tmost intimate friends by a specially liired Father Walsh may not have intended the information for publication but we confidently submit to an intelligent public with the statement ting on authority so excellent was not a duty we owed to the Irish people of the United States to publish what we At all our skirts are The appended letter sufficiently exon erates us from coining thestory against James Whether common opinion is correct in discrediting the speciallyemployed detectives we shall leave to the considerations of All we ask is that those on ac count of what we so bitterly denounced us through the public prints will now do us the simple justice to set us right oefore their We shall await developments and should we find it necessary in our own justifica tion to publish other names and au we shall freely do This is Father Walshs letter CONN March To the Uuffalo Catholic Union I find it necessary to state that I con veyed the information to Father Crooin regarding James I did not intend that it should be used for but Father seeing the efforts made to give out the impression that Stephens was in Paris to help along the Irish thought it necessary and proper to do what he could to expose he well was a vast fraud on our peo On the night of December be ing in one of Parnells most intimate friends re quested me to write to him to put him on bis guard against said stating that a private detective had been watching for over two and found him quite frequently calling on the Englisn Consul in New The same information was given still later to other On investigating the matter more I find it to be the common opinion that my informant was LAWRENCE Violation of of the greatest crimes that has been laid at the door of the Irish Land League is the accusation that it teaches the violation of contracts by the peas Archbishop McCabe hints at this charge the English papers proclaim and or dodo from New bronijht it in his recent har For the benefit of those who may imagine that the Land League is guilty of all that is alleged against it in this it will be advantageous to refer to a case which the pariah priest of gives of the contract system in his One Lord Asuton lately bought for one way is to I an estate in that part of the and noon taking possession of he forthwith sent his agents around amoruj the peasantry to announce that rents were A new lease wasoffered the tenants which they were commanded to sign within three days under pain of The increase of the rentals was about ten per of the former and made the to be payed about twice the In many of unfor tunate who bad no other al signed the luan would naturally do that and hope foe the best sooner than bis family thrown out on the Bat would any casuist hold into was thus is or blame hits if by every means in bis en deavored to free himself from its obli gations In many other cases which Father Finn cites the matter shows in worse In the same district a Perry acquired property eighteen years ago upon which the rents have been raised four or five different From 28 shillings an acre the rate went up to Five years when leases the tenants were notified to A bailiff then came and invited them to the agents where they were told to sign new leases without the privilege of reading or Of course the new leases raised the and the tenant might sign them or refuse at his No wonder that John Dillon says the publication of facts like which are to be found everywhere in would settle completely the question of freedom sanctity of We wonder how long the accusers of the Land League would consider them selves bound if they were made the victims of such a villainous system as With rents from 100 to 200 per above a fair is it to be thought strange if the slave of a forced agreement endeavors to free himself from a contract whose clauses hedge him on every hand and almost yearly eorapel him to beg for his fWeekiy Land League The J League had re mitted to April The TwentySecond Ward New have remitted to April Minnesota has 30 branches of the and
