Evidence lleluK Collected which It 1« Said Witt Create a SeiiHatlon. CHICAGO, May 9.—It was three years ago last Wednesday night since Patrick Henry Cronin, the noted Irish patriot, met his death at the hands of the assassin who had been designated by lot to accomplish that end, but, although some of those directly concerned in one of the most diabolical crimes of the present age have received their meed of punishment, and are now confined within the walls of the Joliet penitentiary, there to labor and to slave until death comes to their release, it is nevertheless certain that the principals iu the atrocity are still at large, and in some cases holding high their heads in the community. The report is current, however, in well informed Irish circles that are identified with what may be termed the Cronin wing of the race element in this city, that important disclosures are on the tapis, and which will involve men toward whom the finger of suspicion has never yet been directed.jlt is a fact that evidence pointing toward the complicity of certain individuals whose names have never yet appeared in connection with the case has been in the course of collection, fragment by fragment, for the past ycar ,especially during the past two months, and one of those who is closely associated with the inner circle is responsible for the statement that when these developments reach a climax there will be a sensation second only to that created by the disappearance of the physician, and the subsequent discovery of his mutilated body in the sewer trap at Lake View. Although not generally known, it is also a. fact that since" the conviction of those supposed to have been accessories in this diabolical crime the effort on the part of the friends of Dr. Cronin to fasten the guilt upon the principals has never sagged for a single day or hour. Week by week, and month by month, the chain of circumstantial evidence has been forged until to-day it is considerably stronger than thatupon which many a man and many a woman has been sent to the gallows in this and other countries. There are thoBe who believe that in the wisdom of Providence the true story of the conspiracy by which that unfortunate Irishman met so atrocious a death is to be revealed. That the revelation must come sooner or later is beyond poradventure. When it does come.it will be known for the first time where the conspiracy was concuted, when it was concocted, how it was concocted, who was the man who,rirove the white horse attached to the buggy in which Dr. Cronin WBB conveyed to the place of execution, who was the man that opened the door of the Carlson cottage, who was the man who waited outside while the bloody work was being accomplished, greatest of all who were the men that confronted him on the threshold of the place whither ho had been decoyed as a ministering angel, who were the men with whom he engaged in a hand to hand conflict, who were the men that plied the weapons with which his limbs were broken and his head battered, who were the men that stripped his body as naked as upon the day of his birth and yet shrank with horror from laying hands upon the insignia of the Catholic church that was fastened around his neek, who packed and jammed his lifeless remains into the trunk, and who drove them to the sewer. All these queries must have answers, and these answers, according to those who are spending their lives anci their incomes in vindicating the memory of the murdered patriot and in following up his assassins will not much longer be delayed.

CHICAGO, May 9.—"Other men besides anarchists can be goaded into making and throwing bombs, and if the outrages on the colored race continue, the negro will become a chemist." So said Fred Douglass, the colored ex-United States minister to Hayti, In an interview at the Palmer house to-day. The words were not uttered in passion, but came with deliberation. "The thirst for the blood of men must cease in the south," he went on, "or assureas night follows day there will be an insurrection. It is the worst evidence of outlawry and disregard of justice and human rights that we should hear every day that some black man had been lynched. It is not true that the colored men are ravishers of women and children, and certainly if the negro is guilty what possibility is there of his escape from justice if he he given a fair and lawful trial. I have long urged upon the colored men to assemble and lay bare to the world their bleeding wounds. This grand Columbian exposition will be just the opportunity for them to assemble and seek a remedy I hope to sie a great convention or congress of colored men here at that time."
