London Times Thinks There Is
Cause for Real Alarm
New York, Dec. 30. A telegram
from Doubiin to the London Times and
New York Times says the absolute au
thority which the United Irish League
demands and secures, not only in regard
to the disposal of lands by private per
sons, but also in regard to the allocation
of public appointments and contracts,
is constantly being illustrated. The
North Slift-o branch of the league has
resolved that the local nationalist boards
shall not consider tenders by persons
who do not prove themselves national
ists. The London Times, in an editorial to
day, says the return of John . lied
mond, M. P., and bis companions from
their mission to "raise the wind" on the
other side of the Atlantic, synchronizes
with attempts on the part of the Irish
executive to vindicate the law. Prose
cations have been instituted against
nationalist members of parliament and
others who have defied the authority of
parliament and the crown and have
persisted in holding meetings at which
most violent intimations of coercion
have been need.
It is said that it is mislet dins to argue
because the actual crime acd outrage
is not large, that there is no cause for
alarm about the state of Ireland. There
is ample evidence that the executives
and the workings of the United Irish
League are supported bv the Irish
parlimentary party and by the majority
of the priests. The pressure on peace
able oitixena ia tremendous, and it ia not
surprising that many loyalists pay

Washington, Dec. 10. In view of the
repeated publications of late of the gen
eral romor tbat Secretary Bay is about
to retire frcm the cabinet, a statement
is given with full aothority toncbing
this subject, substantially to the effect
tbat Secretary Hay does not contem
plate retirement from the cabinet. This
statement applies not only to the pres
ent moment, but to that indefinite
period fixed by the conclusion of the
negotiations to the construction of an
Also it is stated with equal positive
neas fand authority that President
Roosevelt bad in the strongest terms
expressed to Secretary JHay his earnest
desire that he shall remain in the cab
inet, of which he forms one of the prin
cipal props. Thus, according to the
statement, the secretary's inclinations
and the president's desires ran together,
and there is no foundation for the re
ports to the effect that Secretary Hay is
to leave hie post.

The "Doctor s'' Statement in the Zion
Chicago, Dec. 20. "Dr." John Alex
ander Dowie talked to his heart's con
tent today in defending tbe suit against
him for a receivership for his Zion lace
industries. He intimated to Attorney
Reeves, who was cross-examining bim,
tbat he liked to talk, and he was granted
permission to lay bare bis heart.
"Dowie" was the main topic of hie story,
and with much show of higher educa
tion, Latin quotations and attempts at
witticisms, he brought smiles and merri
ment to his many followers who throng
ed the courtroom until they bed to be
quieted by one of hie deacons. In sub
stance he declared with ranch emphasis
tbat be was no tyrant surrounded by
hordes of willing slayes. Rather, he
explained how be worked tirelessly for
tbe good of his community, sometimes
as much as 27 hours at at stretch. He
said be abbored slaves and would allow
none to work for bim who did not come
to bim voluntarily. He gave Steven
son's testimony flat denial, and said bis
brother-in-law lied when he quoted
Dowie'e sister as saying, "Thank God,
we are free from tbat tyrannical role
now." Dowie admitted that Stevenson,
after parting with his entire business,
including lace machinery, patterns and
stock, got ont of tbe bargain only $5000.
Then Attorney Reeves tried to show that
tbe entire liabilities of tbe Zion lace
industries would aggregate $1,168,000,
inclnding stock dividends, etc., but
Dowie said tbe conjecture was foolish.
Tbe direct question waa then put to
Dowie, whether be believed that he was
Elijah tbe prophet, to which he replied
tbat be was willing to express his views,
bnt tbat they were already on record.
