FACING THE MUSIC. FOLKESTOXK, Feb. 12.—Messrs. Dillon and O'Brien arrived from Boulogne- Sur-Mer, and voluntarily surrendered themselves to the police authorities. Shortly after their arrest Messrs. O'Brien and Dillon, in custody of the police, "boarded the train '-which was in waiting 1 for the Folkestone boat and proceeded to London, where they will be compelled to serve the terms of imprisonment imposed upon them some months ago by the Tipperary court f of conspiring-to incite the tenants on tha Smith-Barry estate not to pay rent. • ' LONDON, Feb 12.- r -WiUiam O'-Brien has issued a long- statement on the Irish Parliamentary party-tsrWfation. He says: "Tbe experience of tbe past Bve weeks, gathered in personal interviews, letters and newspapers, confirms my conviction that only a hearty reunion can save the Irish cause. It is tny duty to solemnly declare that no difficulty' existed which a httla more sacrifice of per; sonal feelings r.i both sides might not have surmounted. No u -elul purpose can ta served by publishing the details o£ negotiations, and I have, therefore. dee1ded,to regard them as confidential; hut 1 think, none of the -parties concerned will seriously question that on the main points a substantial agreement was established. lean not too strongly express •with what leelings we lound the settlement; shipwrecked at the last momennt ty mere contests of words, which offer a shockingly inadequate excuse 'or committing the country to a struggle involving appalling- influences. Hampered at every step by a mischief-making section of the press and also by responsible persons who seemed to resent any attempt to give a less barbarous character to the conflict and the reconciliation impeded by persons fatally deceived as to our own and our opponents' strength, the irreconcilables ol all sections have carried the day. Dillon and myself can not longer stand their deplorable work We should have been more sensitive to the obliquity'we incur by refusing to participate in such a conflict had we ever shrunk from a conflict with Ireland's enemies. We can do nothing more till we have recovered freedom of action by getting through with the sentence standing against us. On the expiration of that term I shall he happy to submit myself to the judgment ol my constituents; audit lean not otherwise assist lean enable them to commit their interests to other hands." Mr. O'Brien expresses the hope that the inevitable conflict forced upon the country may be conducted without personal bitterness and degrading personality, so that when the unhappy passions of the hour have exhausted them• selves all may again co-operate in the Nation's cause. Mr. Dillon, in a short statement, admits that he had been largely infhieneed to mediate by the action of Mr. Parnell's most prominent opponents. Mr. Parnell, he says, had been assailed with shocking personal vindictiveness and brutality in utter disregard of what .was due him -in return for his splendid _ services. This personal element had in many minds hopelessly obscured the _ great public issues and driven thousands in Ireland and America into ParnelTs camp who otherwise would have' opposed his continued leadership. Mr. Dillon continues: "I have resented the -whole of Mr. Parnell s proceedings. I was utterly unable to accept his leadership after the famous manifesto, yet had I been free from the sentence o( Imprison ment I should have found it difficult, if not impossible, to throw mysell heartily into a struggle conducted in a method utterly abhorrent to me. The Havre conference found myself in perfect accord .with .Mr. O'Brien on the facts submitted to me that no alternative but the arrangement, he suggested would free our cause from disaster. .1 therefore felt -it to be my. duty cordially and'loyally to support him in the ditticnlt task he had undertaken. Events "have fully borne out. Mr O'Brien's views and proved that the arranger, ment he contemplated was perfectly possible, but 'from the beginning of tee negotiations powerful Influences were: working on both sides against peace, and, we are, now. ^compelled sorrowfully . to an-. nomas^ failure. Those who, either' from ignorance or malice, sneered at and misconstrued our efforts, will • before long realize the full extent of their responsibility. For my own part I can not even now abandon the hope that the good sense of the Irish people will as sert itselt and insist upon putting an end to an insane conflict that can result only in her humiliation and ruin." In an interview Mr. Pavnell declared; that he would not .recede from his.posi-v.. tion, which he.said was consistent. He r would not submit, he said, to the dicta-: tion of Mr- Gladstone and the priests,:. He believed that the general election would not be held for two years yet. Mr. Parnell will start for Ireland Friday to begin anotherjjainpaign. • Miners Demnnd on ElgM-JIour Bay. [.
