THE REPUBLICAN: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1891. THB NOTED IRISH LEADER DENLY STRICKEN DOWN. Though in Poor Health No One Dreamed of His Death—His Demise the Remit of » Chill Received Last Week—Sir John Pope Henncssy Also Gone to His l/ast Account. LONDON, Oct. 7.—When Great Britain and Ireland awoke from their slumbers they were startled by the utterly unlooked-for announcement that Charles Stewart Parnell, the noted Irish leader, had died suddenly during the evening at his home in Brighton. It has been well known that Mr. Parnell has not enjoyed the best of health for years past, and it has been noticed and widely commented upon that since the O'Shea divorce developments became a matter of public notoriety and since political troubles came upon him CHARLES STEWABT PABNELL. that the great Irish member of parliament had grown thinner, and that he had perceptibly aged in appearance. But nobody expected to hear of his death and no inkling as to his illness had reached the newspapers. Very Meager Details. Not until 10 o'clock, however, was it possible to obtain details as to the death of Mr. Parnell. He died at his home, Walsingham terrace, Brighton, at 11:80 p. m. His death is said to have been indirectly due to a chill which he caught last week, and which at first was not regarded as being of a serious nature. Mr. Parnell, however, grew worse and a physician was-called in, with the result that the patient was ordered to take to his bed. This was on Friday last, and from that time Mr. Parnell lost strength and finally succumbed. The exact nature of the disease which caused the death of the Irish leader is not made known at present. From the day he took to his bed, however, the state of Mr. Parnell's health has been such as to necessitate the constant attendance of two physicians, but in spite of their incessant and untiring efforts to prolong or to save his life, Mr. Parnell gradti- ally saak lower and lower until he expired in the arms of his wife. TltonRht He Had Suicided. In this city, particularly, the news of Mr. Pr.rnell's death came down like a thunderbolt upon the clubs and in political circles. Nobody, so far as was at first known, was even aware that he was indisposed, and, consequently, when it became known that the Irish leader was dead, naturally the first idea formed was that he had committed suicide. As the day wore on, however, it leaked out from the statements of his intimate friends that Mr. Parnell had complained to them recently of not feeling as well as usual, but it was not thought by anybody that there was anything serious in the symptoms referred to by the late member for Cork city, though he was thinner than ,he was last year. The last time Mr. Parnell appeared in public was at Greggs, in Ireland, Sept. 27, when he delivered a long speech upon the attitude and alleged inconsistencies of Messrs. Dillon and O'Brien. Upon that occasion Mr. Parnell stated that he was speaking in defiance of the doctors, who were attending him, and who had expressly, ordered him to keep his room. CHARLES STEWART PARNELL. Biography of the Man Who Ha« Rendered Important Services to Ireland. Charles Stewart Parnell was born in Avondale, County Wicklow, Ireland, in 1846. He was a decendant of the poet Parnell, and his family have been associated with Irish parliamentary life for •upwards of a century. His great grandfather, Sir John Parnell, was chancellor of the exchequei at the time of of Grat- tan'a parliament. Sir Henry Parnell, grand uncle of Mr. Parnell, was a prominent member of the English parliament in the time of Lord Grey and Lord Melbourne, and was made Lord Congleton. Mr. Parnell, whose mother is a daughter of Admiral Charles Stewart, a celebrated American naval officer, was educated at Cambridge university, but did not take any degree. After a tour In America, he settled down on his property in Avoudale. On the death of John Martin in 1875, Mr. Parneil stood for County Meath and was elected. Parcell first took »n active part In parliamentary affairs in the session of 1876, when in association with Mr. Biggar he initiated what was known by the various names of the "obstructive" and the "active" policy. He joined in the foundation of the Laud league, and in October, J879, he was elected its first president. In December, 1879, Mr. Parnell made a Visit to the United States with the design of interesting the Irish-American population in the cause of the Land league. While in this country he lectured before several state legislatures, aud finally before the house of representatives at Washington. The honor of addressing this branch of congress Lad previously been conferred upon but three .persons—Lafayette, Joss Uth, and the Bishop of Charleston, England. Ucon his return home ho became bitter in his attitude towards the landlords and the government, and it was charged tha this led to disorder in Ireland. From thi eh&fga he waa subsequently vindicated. ta November, 1880, informations wen Wd bf the Irish attorney general againi Mr. Parnell and other members of th Land league executive. The trial endet in a disagreement of the judges. In th opening of the session of 1681 the govern ment brought in a coercion bill, and tc that measure, as well as tha arms bill, Mr Parnell and his colleagues offered all ob struction possible, prolonged over seven weeks. February 3 he and thirty-four o his followers were removed by thx. *ergeant-at-arms for causing obstruction in the house of commons. Land league demonstrations followed the passage o the land act, and the government pro claimed the Land league tobeanillega association, and Mr. Parnell issued the "No Rent" manifesto. Mr. Parnell re mained in Kilmainham jail till April 18Sa, when he was released on parole it order to attend the funeral of a relative He was formally released May 2. Then followed the resignation of Mr. Porster and Lord Cowper, the Phoenix park murders and the stormy debates on the crimes bill. In these scenes and the subsequent organization of the National league in 1883, and in parliament in 1884-5, Mr. Parnell was the most conspicuous figure. On the dissolution of parliament ho returned back with eighty-five members. It was to meet this situation that Mr. Gladstone proposed home rule, in which he was supported by Mr. Parnell and the whole strength of his party. The sensations growing out of the Parnell commission and the Times' libel suit are of too recent occurrence to need special mention. Misfortunes overtook Mr. Parnell in public notice of his relation to Mrs. O'Shea, whom he recently married. The attitude of Mr. Gladstone and the Irish bishops compelled his deposition as an Irish leader. THE NEWS IN IRELAND. No Event of the Last Half Century Has So Stnrtlecl the People. DUBLIN, Oct. 7.—No event of the last half century has so startled the people of this city as did the death of Mr. Parnell at Brighton. The bulletin boards conveyed the unexpected tidings in letters a foot long to the workmen hurrying to their various occupations. At the railway stations the news was posted in conspicuous places to attract the notice of the incoming throngs from the sub- :.rb:in towns. In front of the postoffioe und a score of prominent places along the great thoroughfare, Sackville street, announcements of the death of the Irish leader confronted the profoundly affected crowds who gazed upon them. Men, women and children alike, seemed stunned by the words which stared them in the face. It was noticeable that no expression of political feeling was heard among the groups who everywhere gathered to discuss the death of the Irish chieftain. From 8 o'clock in the morning the telegraph office, the office of The Freeman's Journal and that of every other newspaper in the city swarmed with people of all classes and conditions eagerly looking for particulars. Up to this time, however, nothing but the mere announcement of the fact and cause of death have been received. Heard at Cork. Dispatches from Cork say the news of the death of Mr. Parnell has caused a panic in that city. So absolutely unexpected was the announcement that at first it was received as a canard, but information of its truth quickly, crowded upon its heels. The personal and Apolitical friends of the dead man are overwhelmed with grief, and those who loudly and hotly opposed him in life to-day maintain a dignified and respectful silence. The death has come so suddenly upon the people of Cork that as yet nothing has been done there in the way of formal action in the matter. Meantime the wires between Cork and Dublin, and between Ireland and England are loaded with dispatches of inquiry and sympathy. Pavnell's Mother Informed. BORDKNTOWN, N. J., Oct. 7.—When Mrs. Delia T. S. Parnell was informed of the death of her son Charles Stewart Parnell, she fell from her chair to the floor shrieking and groaning: "Oh, my son; my Charley! They have killed you." She moaned. She became hysterical, and it was some time before she was sufficiently composed to receive the particulars of her son's death. She is f 6 years old and quite feeble. She declared that Charles had offered to aid her, but she had assured him she was comfortable. She spoke bitterly of her half brother, Edward Stewart, who she said had tried to deprive her of her home and had kept her away from her son. She also excitedly declared that her son had been killed by the persecution of Davitt, the Irish World and the politicians. She mourned because these circumstances had prevented her from being with her son in his last years. COMMENTS ON HIS DEATH. The News Causes Surprise and Regret. Opinion* of Prominent Irishmen. WASHINGTON, Oct. 7.—The announcement of the death of Charles Stewart Parnell was received with a great deal of surprise in Washington, where he was well known personally and where he had many supporters before the O'Shea scandal. Referring to Parnell's death Mr. J. D. O'Connell, whose guest Parnell was when he was in this city in 1876, said: "This is the greatest blessing the Lord has bestowed upon Ireland during years of her suffering and struggle. I say this with all reverence and with an appreciation of the sadness of the blow to his relatives and friends. Since the O'Shea scandal divided our people, Parnell has been a source of irritation, and the cause of Ireland has been injured by the contentions. I think now all the trouble will be cured at once." Michael Davitt Talks. NEW YORK, Oct. 7. -No event in recent Irish political history has produced such a sensation among Irish as the announcement of the death of Charles Stewart Parnell. Nobody anticipated Mr. Parnell's death and all the calculations of tha Irish Nationalists as to the future of the home rule movement were based en Parnell's apparently inflexible determination to continue the fight upon the lines laid down aa the famous mani- festo. Michael Davitt could hardly be« HevethenewB of Mr. Darnell's death It was apparently the last thi** that he expected to hear. WKefi VstSed th* the news had been confirmed, he said "Iregrrt «*o«edingly front a pewoaa standpoint the death of M*. Parnell. I regret it because it ia Bad to speculate on the brilliant future that Charles Stewart Parnell had and the great op portunity that fell to him to immortal ize himself a patriot in the cause of his native land. I believe now that no harsh utterances will be delivered over the grave of Parnell, and that many, if not all, of the animosities that, have existed among the people of Ireland recently will be buried out of sight never to be resurrected." The Phyglclan's Certificate. LONDON, Oct. 0.—A dispatch from Brighton is to the effect that the physician's certificate, which has just been filed, states that the death of Mr. Parnell was cuused by rheumatic fever, resulting in excessive temperature and consequent failure of the heart. LAID AT REST. Parnell's Remains Interred in the Cemetery at Glasnevan. DUBLIN, Oct. ll.— The remains of Charles Stewart Parnell reached Dublin 7:80 a. m., and were taken at once to the city hall, where they laid in state from 10 o'clock until a. A steady flow people passed through the building, and it is estimated that 40,000 viewed the remains. Nearly all were in deepest mourning. At 2:45 p. m. the funeral cortege started for the grave in Glasnevin cemetery. As the coffin passed it was almost hidden by flowers. Every head in the vast assemblage wag uncovered. When the procession started' the rain ceased and the sun came out. The scene was most impressive. All windows and bouse tops were packed. The procession wended its way by a circuitous route to the cemetery, the circuit making it scarcely possible to reach the cemetery before 6 o'clock, Perfect Order Prevailed, although the vast line of mourners surpassed in numbers any spectacle ever Been in Dublin. When the first part of the procession reached the cemetery gate, at 5 o'clock it was found impossible to penetrate the dense masses assembled there, and after a struggle the police had to abandon the effort to make a way through the crowd. It was then decided to close the lower gate. This was effected amid great disorder just as the hearse reached the spot. The hearse was then escorted to the upper gate. The coffin was removed and placed on a platform especially constructed in such a way that tha procession could file around it and have a view of the bier. At 7 o'clock, when dusk was fast falling on the scene, the procession was still filing around the bier, so orders were jiven to remove the coffin to the side of ;he grave. The crush on all sides was terrible and the noise of shrieking women and of children squeezed in the throng and the shouts of men struggling amid ;he crush, made inaudible the voices of the clergy reciting the ritual of the church of England. When the crowd had thinned away, the friends grouped again about the grave and took a last look at the coffin. It was 7 o'clock when the mourners started to return to the city. MRS. PARNELL'S CONDITION. The Wife of the Dead Statesman Growing Steadily Worse. LONDON, Oct. 11.—Advices from Brighton state that Mrs. Parnell's condition is pitiable, and grows worse instead of improving. Immediately after Parnell's death she was in better condition than now, for, although she fainted, she recovered sufficiently to have some iommunication with friendw, and, through their medium, with the outside world. She has been growing worse every day, until now she only moans in reply to questions and is unable to speak. The doctors who are in constant attendance fear that her condition may grow more critical, and are doing everything possible to restore, her, but apparently without effect. The only intelligible sounds that she has uttered in hours have been plaintive cries for her husband. JOHN POPE HENNESSY. the By Strange Coincidence He Dies on Samo Day With Paruell. LONDON, Oct. 7.—Coupled with the announcement that Mr. Parnell died during the night was the news that Sir John Pope Hennessy, member of parliament for North Kilkenny, was also dead; Sir John Pope Hennessy, it will be remembered, immediately after the exposure in the O'Shea divorce case in December, 1890, contested the North Kilkenny election, backed up by Mr. Parnell's opponents and defeated the Parnellite candidate, Mr. Vincent Scully, by 1,147 votes. This was a great and possibly the greatest test of strength jetween the Parnellites and the Mc- Carthyites, and the defeat of Mr, Scully no doubt counted for a great deal in the 'uture series of disasters which befell -he Irish leader. MONUMENT IN MEMORY OP GRANT UNVEILED AT CHICAGO, Services For William Henry Smith. LONDON, Oct. 12.—Services were held n Westminster Abbey in memory of the ate William Henry Smith, first lord of he treasury. The queen and prince of Wales were represented and her majesty sent a wreath of flowers. The audience was a very distinguished one. After the ceremonies the body was taken to Walmer castle for interment. Allerton King; of Stallion*. GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Oct. 8.—Alerton is the only horse in Grand Rap- ds tonight and his friends own the city. Chirty thousand people saw the Iowa stallion defeat Nelson, the pride of New Sngland. It was not a model day for the race; the air being cold and the sky leavy with clouds. The horses were driven by their respective owners. Nelson won the first heat in 2:13 and Allerton won the three following in f;i4i, 2:15,2:16*. ' Many Distinguished Man from All Parti of the Country Present—The Hero a Apponiftttox Eulogized by Judg< Oregham, Orator of the Day. CHICAGO, Oct. 7.—The universal hope of both citizens and visitors that fair weather would grace the ceremony 01 nnveiling the monument to Genera Grant was not to be realized. Nevertheless the programme was carried out without a hitch of any kind. With the blare of cannon, the patriotic music of a hundred bands, the enthusiastic acclaim of a hundred thousand throats; in the presence of the honorable relict of the dead, of the son that amongst all hie children he loved so well, of constitutional advisors of the present chief executive of the land, of representatives of every religious denomination, of men whose heroic deeds upon the field of battle have graven their names upon the pages of history, of veterans who once wore*the gray and met in bloody conflict the forces of him to whose memory they did honor today—the magnificent statue erected by the citizens of Chicago to the immortal memory of Ulysses Simpson Grant, artisan, citizen-soldier, general, commander-in-chief of the army of the United States, and twice elected to the highest office in the gift of the people of his native land, was formally unveiled. The Parade. Just as General Miles gave the word for the head of the column to move the clouds delivered themselves of a smart shower, but even this did not dampen the ardor or enthusiasm of the paraders or spectators. The parade moved in five divisions, and it is estimated that 25,000 people were in line. The Fourth division, with A. C. Ducat as marshal was led by a carriage containing Mrs. General Grant and another with Jesse Grant and family, a third with U. S. Grant, Jr., and family, other vehicles containing General Greshani and family, Secretary Noble and party, Mrs. John A. Logan and family and the members of the Grant Monument asso- tiation. Ceremonies at the Monument. When the division containing the distinguished guests had reached the base of the monument Mrs. U. S. -Grant, Jesse Grant and his wife and their children were escorted to seats on the right of Judge Gresham, and the immense gathering was called to order. Prayer was offered by Bishop John P. Newman, after which the statue was presented on behalf of the trustees of ;he association to the commissioners of Liincoln park and the people of Chicago by Edward T. Taylor. At a prearranged signal the young son of Potter Palmer loosed the cord binding the bunting that concealed the eighteen-foot bronze horse and rider on ;he great pile of stone, and as every curve of the noble steed and soldier stood out and the stern face of the dead hero sprang into view, a great plaudit and salute arose that was American from ;he heart. When the last rumble of the ast gun had ceased, Hon. W. C. Goudy, s^ president of the Lincoln Park commissioners, made a graceful speech of acceptance, and Mayor Hempstead Washburne accepted the monument on ';he part of the citizens of Chieago. Judge Gresham then proceeded to de- iver his address, in which he paid a glowing tribute to the magnanimous nature of Grant, his wonderful skill as a leader and the absence of vanity and conceit over his victories. KICK ON PORTER. The Executive Committee of the Minnesota Alliance Meets in St. Paul. ST. PAUL, Oct. 7.—Ignatius Donnelly and his associates on the executive committee of the Farmers' Alliance*of this state held an all-day session at the Merchants hotel. There was considerable routine business to transact in •eceiving and passing upon reports, but .he greater part of the forenoon and afternoon was spent in the discussion of state and national affairs. The first question to which they turned their at- iention was Superintendent Porter's census, in so far as it pertained to securing •eturns on the mortgaged property of Ms state. The superintendent, they thought, had violated a statute by di- •ecting his enumerators to report only ;hose mortgages which are a lien upon 'arms and homes occupied by owners, and to include no valuation of real es- state occupied by tenants or hired, nor lie indebtedness upon the same, if it could reasoably be avoided. They also •esolved to call upon Governor Morriam ;o furnish a sufficient amount of twine- mtiking machinery to supply the farmers of the state with twine. WILL MEET IN NOVEMBER.
