CHICAGO, Octoiikii 31
At the Croniu murdor trial evidence was adduced to the effect that Major Le Caron, military organiser of the Fenian Association, received 40,000d0l from the Clan-na-Gael for his mission to England. Evidence was also given that after Major Le Caron'a disclosures before the Parncll Commission in London a demand was made at Camp No. 20 that the four British spies in the Clan-na-Gael should be expelled. Thomas O'Connor then stated that the executive of the Clan na-Gael were rogues, who had squandered a hundred dollars to get the best men imprisoned in London through the assistance of Major Le Caron, and under pressure Detective Coughlin, who was subsequently accused of complicity in Dr Cronin's murder, demanded the appointment of a secret committee to elicit the source of O'Connor's charges, and to this, Biggs, the guardian of the camp, consented.
