Irish Fenians in America. No. I ASSASSINATED. MURDER IN A NEWSPAPER OFFICE. O'DONOVAN ROSSA THREATENED WITH DEATH. NEW YORK, Friday Night.—A most sensational incident occurred in a newspaper oflice here this afternoon at four o'clock, when a man named Richard Short fatally stabbed Captain Piielan in the office of the United Ireland, O'Donovan Rossa's paper. Capt. Phelau, who was taken una wares j immediately armed himself with a revolver and fired at his assailant, seriously injuring him. Capt. Phelan was one of the projectors of the skirmishing fund fitartcd hy the extreme Irishmen here to collect money for the purpose of dynamite outrages in England, and he was since suspected of having been the celebrated and much-talked of "No. 1." Short declared that Phslan was one of the many Irishmen who had been driven to take refuge in America on account of revelations rcade by M'Dermott, the informer, to the English Government. The alleged cause of Short's action is said to be that Pheian had divulged certain secrets of the Fenian Society. A letter from Rossa was found on Phelan's person, inviting him to his office to discuss im- portant business. There is immense excitement in the Irish Fenian Colony in New York, who surrounded the office of United Ireland, in Cham- bers-street, threatening death to O'Donovan Rossa, who was, however, protected by his friends.
