Now that summer leaion Is on. It can hardly be that a house In Washington can not spare a blanket or a coverlet, and, third, I suggest that from the substantial business men and others there be appointed a committee who shall collect money. For, after the first exigency is past, there will be found in those communities very many who nave lost their all, who will need aid In the reconstruction of their demolished homes, and in furnishing them so that they may be again inhabited. "Need I say in conclusion that, as a temporary citizen of Washington, it would give me great satisfaction if the national capital hould so generously respond to this call of onr distressed fellow-citizens as to be conspicuous among the cities of our land. Applause. "I feel that as 1 am now calling for contributions I should aay that on Saturday, when first apprised of tbe disaster at Johnstown, I telegraphed a subscription to tbe Mayor of tnat city. I do not like to speak of anything so personal as this, but I felt it due to myself and to yoa that I should say as much as this." A list of Vice-Presidents, Including the members of tbe Cabinet, Chief Justice Fuller, Chief Justice Bingham of (the Supreme Court ot tne District and twelve of the most prominent business men of the city was chosen, and Secretaries and a Treasurer selected. Calls for subscriptions were then made and tbe responses were numerous and for quite large amounts, a half dozen being for $500 each. About 110, 000. was raised In tbe hall.

The mass-meeting which wss appointed to be held at 1 o'clock to-day on the floor of the Merchants' Exchange was called to order by President Charles Cox, who at once introduced Mayor Noonan. There were about five hundred people present and most of them were the members of the Exchange who happened to be on tbe floor. The chairs on the platform were occupied by President Cox, Mayor Noonan, Secretary George H. Morgan, ex-Gov. E. O. Stanard, Mr. Frank Galennie, Charles Meade, the Mayor's Secretary, John B. Gondolfo and John Wahl. The purpose of the meeting was to raise money iui-aiately to aid the Johnstown sufferers ann to appoint a committee to canvas for subscriptions. When Mayor Noonan took the floor be said : "I will not recite to you again tbe circumstances tnat have brought you together. They have been told you by tbe press of tbe country and you are ail familiar with tbe details of the terrible disaster that has come upon a part of our country. It is time now for action, not for words. As Mayor of your city, recogniziug forty-elgbt hours ago tbe necessity for quick action, I took it upon myself to issue a proclamation. or rather a notification tnat goods for the sufferers would be received at the office of the Mayor. I notified Pittsburg that St. Louis would not be backward in extending aid to Johnstown. Other messages have passed between Mr. McCreery, the Chairman of tbe Relief Committee, and myself, and the Board of Trade of Pittsburg has sent you an appeal, and in answer to that appeal this meeting has been called. I am simply here at the request of your President to aid you in any way lean. Tne following message was sent to Mr. McCreery this morn ing: w. u. weereery, cnairman or tne lienor Committee. Pittsburg, Pa: I send draft for $5y0, contributions brought into my office. The merchants are now in session raising money. "K. A. Noonan, Mayor." Tbis is not a public meeting as we hoped It would be. It is a meeting of merchants who have been so heavily drawn npon in the past that I know we cannot expect much now. There are some wealthy men and millionaires, who are not connected with mercantile pursuits, who have not been heard trom, who have not contributed to aid the sufferers, and to my certain knowledge they have never contributed to anything else; so the responsibility falls upon the merchants again. Hut this Is an unusual occasion. The disaster In the Conemaugh Valley is the greatest calamity of modern times. It is not confined to the State of Pennsylvania. Our grand country is one, and so closely are we bound together that when onn part of our nation is struck we are ail struck. What is to be done must be . done quickly. The charity that comes quickly is the real charity; that which is slow is orten of little avail. According to reliable Information between 12,000 and 15,000 now lie dead in the little valley of Conemaugh. Tho visitation of God is upon them. "1 don't want to say much. There Is not much to say, except that we should generally come forward to aid and assist our brothers who are suffering. Let us help to bury their dead: let us give them food and shelter untl they can care for themselves. Philadelphia hasgiven (200,000: Kow lorfc, J100.000; Baltl ttmore. 530.000; Cincinnati. $40,000; Cleveland, $38,000, and De Sota, Mo., $ti50. Let St. Louis now come forward and show herself tbe great and good city that she Is. E. O. stanard was Introduced and made a stron? appeal. He spoke only a few minutes, but he pointed out that the industry of tnn Conemaugh Valley was manufacturing; that all its factories have been swept away and It would be some time before they could provide lor themselves. R. P. Tanaey spoke next, and said that he had only a motion to offer; that a committee be appointed to solicit subscriptions from the members of the Exchange and from different branches of business, and to co-operate with the committee of the Mechanics' Exchange, tbe otbor Institutions and tbe committees the Mayor would appoint; the committee to be ap pointed by tne president and .Mayor. Tbe motion was unanimously carried and the committee will be appointed this afternoon. The Western Union Telegraph Co. bas given notice that it win transmit an messages to Johnstown free, except money orders. for they cannot be paid In the wrecked city. Horace W. Hibbard, General Freight Agent ot tbe Vandalla line, sent the meeting a notice that the Vandalla would transport tree all relief goods for tbe Johnstown sufferers.

The Chicago Kevs publishes the following history of differences In the Clan-na-Gael be tween Alexander Sullivan and Dr. Crcnin. This trouble has frequently teen referred to in the investigation of the Chicago tragedy: P. W. Dunne, formerly of this city and now of Pekin, 111., is said to be tbe first person who made charges aeainst Mr. Suilivan. Mr. Dunne was a member of the Clan-na-Gae Cnmp at Twenty-second street and Wabash avenue. A convention of the Clan-na-Gnel was held in tbis city m August, lsl. The control of the organization passed at this convention Into the Alexander Sullivan, Michael hands of Boland, then of Louisville, now of Kaasas City and Dennis C. Freelv of Rochester. i. Y. Mr. Sullivan was Chief of the Triumvirate and was President and Tresurer. Dunne claimed that Sullivan was using Clan-na-Gael funds for bis personal purposes. A trial committee was appointed In the camp or lodge, with Maurice J. Dorney, a stock yards priest, as chairman. Fattier Dorney biought In a whitewashing report, saying that Mr. Sullivan was making money rapidly and was able on that account to pay off his personal debts. As a result of this alleged trial Mr. Dunne, who preterred the charges, was expelled from the Clan-na-Gael and posted in every lodge as a traitor to Ireland. He wss denounced by Sul livan's friends as a crank and a dynamiter. Dr. Guerin and Dr. Lawless, who were also members of the Twenty-seoond street camp, continued tbe investigations, but soon gave up tbe attempt and resigned from tbe order. Nothing had been proved against Sullivan. Mr. Sullivan is said to have tried later to se cure the control ot tbe Land League. When the organization of tbe Land League Convention occurred in McCormick Hall, Chicago. In January, 1882, It had been decided at a previous caucus of the Clan-na-Gael to organize the Land League with Clan-na-Gael officers. Alexander Sullivan was named for President and William J. Hynes for Treasurer. Hynes declined to act and opposed Sullivan's election. Sullivan did not become President, but became a member of a committee of seven which exercised a kind of management of Irish-American socie ty sff airs. Sullivan Is said to have had a majority of the committee on his side, and with tneir aid to nave so manipulated tne f nua-delphia c onvention In the following year that he was himself elected President, and his nominee. Dr. O'Reilly of Detroit, Treasurer. Sullivan continued to spend money lavishly, and the old question again arose, Where does he get the funds? r.ven alter tne rniiaaeipnia convention it. Cronin continued to be a partisan of Mr. Sullivan , but soon began to criticixe the latter and to draw attention to Sullivan's manipulation of funds. This aroused Sullivan's anger, and Dr. Cronin was expelled from tbe Clan-na-Gael on charges preferred by Mr. Sullivan. Dan Coughlin, the imprisoned detective, and Dr. Le Caron, the Briiish spy, were members of the trial committee that expelled Cronin. Dr. Cronin appealed, but no convention was held until 18s4, when the clan met In Boston. There was a split. An anti-Sullivan faction had been formed the year previous i8.1), and Dr. Cronin was restored to membership in this faction. Rival camps were organized in various cities and Dr. Cronin continued his investigations intoSullivan'salleged crooked ness, r eely and boland, tne other members of the "triangle. ' were also accused of misconduct. Jonn Dovoy came to Dr. Cronln's aid and helped in the investigation. Two wmgs of the Clan-na-Gael were reunited at a convention held in Chicago Inst year. Dr. Cronin formally presented bis charges against Alexander Sullivan. These charges wore referred to a committee of six which met at Buffalo. Dr. Cronin was a member of the committee. Sullivan appeared before tne committee In person. He explained thst as executive he had given )",-500 to Gallagher who was sent to England on a dynamite expedition early In 1SS2, and was promptly sentenced to life Imprisonment after his arrival. Sullivan's own testimonev was tho only proof of this expenditure. It was claimed tbat In the same year Jonn Daly, another dynamiter now in an English jail, was given $-.15,000 to blow up Enelis5 public buildings. From 125,000 to $50,000 was also charged to Lomasney, who mysteriously disappeared tbe same year, some claiming that he was "removed." like Cronin. Four members of the committee refused to convict Sullivan f misappropriating funds, and tbe same four also acquitted him of tbe charge of having sunt Gallagher, Daly and others on alleged dynamite missions to England and then turning tbem over to tbe authorities to cover upvevidences of shortage in the funds. Dr. Cronin was not satisfied with the conclusions reached, and, assisted by John Devoy, continued his investigations. They aie said to have secured absolute proof that the "triangle" made false statements as to the amount of funds furnished tbe English dynamiters. Then came the evidence secured through tbe failure ot the Traders' Bank. The report of tiie committee and Dr. Cronln's minority report were to have been submitted to the convention of the Clan-na-Gael In August next. The fearf this minority report Is alleged by Dr. Cronin's friends to have been the cause of bis "removal." The Irish National League. By Tlerrrh to ia PosT-DispATcn. New York, Junes.
