The Redmonds; by almost heredl- tnry right, come io bo repreuentat.ves !of some constituency In Wexford, and in particular the town of Wexford, with which were assoclntel so many of their family traditions. It wa� really the Parm-I! split that first brought him out. All the Intellectual lesders of the party, with the exception of Redmond himself' and Bdmond U�my-n great but never suff'cir. tly recognised Irish genius- had gon-' ngnlnst Parneil. and thus Redmond became Inevitably the one mart on whom the Parnelliitrs could Concentrate as a successor to the dead chief.

He never stir-rounds with red tap* men holding positions of responsibility. On the contrary, he gives them rope und latitude for exercising their own powars of initiation, which in turn breeds faithful and enthusiastic service.
