THE IRISH IN KENTUCKYtj t The Irishman is no stranger int Kentucky Before George Rogers Clark came to Louisville in 1777fj there were Irishmen here and witht Clark were many Irish soldiers notably Col George Croghan A list of the private soldiers who fought under Clark which maybe seen at I the Polytechnic Society Library dis closes the fact that more than half were of Irish ancestry The first printing office established in Kentucky was by an Irishman j Mat 4 thew Lyon and he was a son of Erin fii of whom the race may feel proud Born in the County Wicklow in 1746 he came to thissco tryathage of thirteen Haviiifip money to pay his ppefbe was bound out to a 0 farrhriii Connecticut andaftertpaytiI- I ing his debts went to Vermont where hev established a Democratic pa per After distinguishing himself as- a r a in wberbf the Green Mountain the p v r1 r r F4r Boys he came to Kentucky and was sent to Congress from 1803 to 1811 after having first served in the broughht over the mountains with him the first type used in any printing office iin this State and therefore can be counted as the first man to do some thing for education In Matthew Lyons time he was not known as a Scotch Irishman That type had not been discovered in those days Plain Irish was good enough for him a lhej loved to be known as an IrH without any misleading pi From Matthew L- Col George Cro 1 A

which they are placedwhether 4ss business men or laborersaa 11 Ithasbien JsaW rhoslholriaha not clannish andwill not support newspaper devoted to their interests like the German We do not believe this We admit the race is not given to combining like some others but we are willing to risk them iin giving their support to a newspaper which will speak in their behalf It will be the policy of this paper to speak for the Irish interests in Louisville and Kentucky We do not mean by this that they should be advanced to the exclusion of others bu shall maintain that they have their just dues in public and private life This will not be advocated on relig ious or politicallines but on broader hass lived for centuries and has never been persecuted True Irishmen doI not quarrel about religious differencesr and where this has been done it has been disastrous We shallattempt to be as broadminded in conducting this journal as the most liberal could desire and cer tainly no man will be offended about what is said in regard to religious aftI We shall go on the principle thatlithe truth will make you free and we propose to stick to that THE IRISH AND THE GLORIOUS FOURTH The Fourth of July

itI parks ithas of providing clemency of the weather As to the programme we can say without fear of being criticised that no other amusement resort will put up a better entertainment than that which rill take place at Phoenix Hill Park tThe Hibernians naturally feel proud of the very prominent part which the sons of Ireland have taken in making the history of this country from the time when Dongan called together- t e Legislature of New York to frame new laws for the colony among which was one granting liberty of conscience to all its citizens down to the present They love to congregate on Inde pendence Day and recount the many noble and patriotic deeds of our race This year they have made arrange ments to have Hon Matt ODoher ty make an address and the public may rest assured that

their ranks have been de pleted by those who joined the army will give an exhibition drill St Patricks Cadets will also give an exhibition drill and we can assure all that it will be a sight worth seeing to match these little fellows go through the various evolutions with the precision of trained soldiers Another feature of the entertainment will be dancing for the younger element which will

Wcxford Men Com memorate the Struggle Ornt Inn Esmondos Speech A magnificent demonstration took place at Vinegar Hill Wexford on Whit Sunday in honor of the gallant heroes who fought in the battle on that historie spot 100 years ago Not less than 40000 people were present Notwithstanding its enormous propor tions the gathering was one of the most orderly that has ever met in the county A monster procession was formedat the Fair Green Ennis corthy which marched to the hill followed by thousands of other peo pIe Notable aud spirited addresses were made and the greatest enthusi asm was manifested Sir Thomas Grattan Esmonde delivered an able speech in the cours of which he made a strong indictment against England concerning her treat ment of Ireland He said in part IIA year ago the people of England celebrated their jubilee They cele brated the growth of their empire the extension of their power the de velopment of their institutions the increase of their wealth and prosper ity In that celebration every one of their colonies and dependencies was represented But the nation which had played a foremost part in build ing up Englands greatness the na tion that had won her battles for her had governed her colonies for her directed her diplomacy for her that nationIrelandwas not represented at those festivities Ireland refused to join in them and rightly refused For what had Ireland to cele brate as the result of her connection with England in the period covered by those celebrations How many famines had there been in Ireland during those years Was she to cele brate them How many millions of her children had been lost to her in those years Was she to celebrate t el- t i rejoiceinthe add v ed circumstance that coercion is now perpetual And what other advan tages had she to chronicle as the re suit of her connection with England Was she to rejoice because it has re quired periodic approaches to civil war to compel England to recognize any of her grievances Or because Englands remedies for Irelands Eng lishmade grievances have invariably been carried out at Irelands expense now at the expense of one class of Irishmen ahd now at the cost of an other Was Ireland to celebrate the fact that all through these years Eng land has steadily and remorselessly drained her of her resources and her wealth by everincreasing taxation Was she to rejoice because under Englands fiscal laws each of her in dustries had been crippled and de stroyed one by one and all sections of her population reduced to poverty And when an English Commission of Inquiry was itself forced to admit that England was bleeding Ireland to death was Ireland to rejoice because this report was promptly repudiated And finally was Ireland to rejoice in that the one persistent and unvarying demand which for ninetyeight years now she has addressed to England viz the recognition of her ancient nationality has been over and over again persistently refused No Ireland poor as she is plun dered as she is insulted as she is had still courage and honesty sufficient t to decline to participate in the rejoicings of an empire in which Na tionalist Ireland has no place But today we celebrate a jubilee of our owna jubilee in which all Irishmen can join a jubi lee which all Irishmen are glad and proud to celebrate a jubilee we celebrate all the more lovingly all the more reverently for that like nearly all of Irelands historic memo ones it comes to us sanctified by Irish blood and hallowed by Irish tears We have few successes to C chronicle in our history Oursuc- ceseesare mainly chronicled in the ij histories of other peoples On the- Uother band we have many disasters J 11 1o word B tthereiz one success ft L r UT a 0 t li- norr rl 0- s it will never be given to any nation to achieve There is one disaster that will never fall upon Ireland while the world endures and that is tM re moval from Irelands grateful and loving memory of the name and fame of those who at any time and under any circumstances have lived or died in defense of Irelands nationhood Foremost among Irelands heroes are the men of 98 And foremost among the heroes of 98 are the men of Wex ford We are here today to cele brate their jubilee proudly lovingly and to place on record our apprecia tion of their heroism in a manner be fitting their descendants We owe no allegiance to England She has always treated Ireland as a rival as an enemy I see but little indication as yet that she will ever treat her otherwise She has deprived us of our ancient constitution by force and by fraud She is overtaxing us year ofeIrish money She takes advantage of us under her perpetual disguise of generosity in every transaction of every kind whether it be the dises tablishmentof a church or the passing of a local government bill England has no more right to rob us than she has rule us yet she does both by her superior strengthIII We submit to force because we have no alternative England is strong enough to deny us our rights for the present We know we have no chance of fighting her It would no doubt be very much more satis factory if we could settle our differ ences with England in the same fashion as was used at Benburb at Fontenoy and on Oulart Hill But under existing conditions such a set tlement is out of the question Eng land is strong enough to keep us down for the presene and we know we have no chance of resisting her in arms But will she always be strong enough to keep us down by force We may not live to see itb ut our sons will surely see the day when Englands denial of Irelands rights by I EngIlandlegislative independence The times we live in are full of portents The great nations of the world are devel oping expanding arming commer cial and political rivalry among them is becoming more and more intense The spirit of war is abroad And while the great continental powers seem to respect each others claims and aspirations there is one power against which their undisguisedand united antagonism is directed That power is England England is the possessor of a vast and valuable em pire but it is an empire easy to attack and difficult to defend And although England is rich and the owner of the most powerful navy on the seas she is neither rich enough nor strong enough to withstand the all but universal coalition which is being plainly arrayed against her Her one possible ally is the United States of America She is very anx ious far more anxious than her statesmen would care to admit to cement an alliance with the United States What chance has England of protecting this alliance So long as she refuses to concede the jusj claims of Ireland she has none whatever Our race is far more powerful in the great Republic than it is at home And the United States can never be friendly to England while Ireland is treated like a conquered province And while the spirit lives which prompted the United States to draw the sword on behalf of oppressed and enslaved Cuba the great Republic will never holdout the hand of friendship to England the oppressor of Ireland that mother of so many millions of American citizens of so many of the heroic leaders and fear less soldiers of Americas own war of independenceThe of the history of the past few years has not been lost upon us We appreciate as fully as they do in England as fully as it is appre ciated abroad what is the significance of the long list of Englands grace fur concessions and surrenders and retreats in Europe Asia Africa 4 r and America in recent times We Irish are but a weak pe pJewe h ye no empire we have often been bea en in the course of our history But o- man has ever been able to say of us that we have been afraid We have never hesitated to stand up for what we believed to be our rights regard less of consequenees We do not hisButAnd when we see England surrendering retreating giving way now to Russia now to Germany and now to France whenever any of these pow ers find fault with her policy We know it is because she feels herself powerless to resist them She dare not fight with a hostile Irelandon her flank And well they know this abroad But the nation that fears to face a challenge will not have longjto wait before a quarrel is forced upon her I II And England will have reason j to rue the day she rejected Irelands proffered friendship unless she remedies her mistake in time For the moment she is strong enough to coerce Ireland How much longer will she be strong enough to coerce Ireland Will she be able to continue the coercion of Ireland in the evert of a Europern war When it comes to a question as it may very shortly come of conciliating Ireland or Ids ing India reestablishing an Irish Parliamentor evacuating Egypt Eng skehasmatter we are perfectly frank V e are ready to make friends with Eng land if England will make friends with us Standing here on this his toric hill where the last great sacra fice to Irish Nationality was offered up animated as we are by the same sentiments with which our countrymen went to their doom in 1798 we declare that we will let bygones be bygones if England will give us ba j our Parliament If Engla1 mit Ireland to her l co artner in ti tr t e Etg al rights ear to our con stitutional demands while she refuses to restore to us those legislativeBow ers and privileges she deprived us of so cruelly in 1800 we are

the Alliance the Times has never been remark uible for friendliness toward the Irish but just now it suits its purpose to pat the Celtic wolfhound on the head and say Good dog after the man ner of its kind What right has it tot doubt the loyalty of IrishAmerit i scans The trouble is that most of t the Anglomaniacs hate the Irish because their loyalty to American Institutions cannot be shaken The Irish believe with their illustrious Countryman Henry Grattan that the United States is the last refuge of the liberties of mankind They op pose the alliance with England be cause they honestly believe that such A compact would destroy that last f refuge The Tory wave of feeling now sweeping over the f country threatens America with the humiliation of returning to the vomit of Brit ish rule which it threw up in 1776 There are Americans who mutilate the Stars and Stripes in order to stitch it to the English Union Jack Con gress should pass a law to hang such Americans as traitors or else exile them perpetually from the country they disgrace The only traitors to the American flag constitution and laws are the Anglomaniacs They talk of territorial extension in irrtjta tion of English imperialism Whats the matter with doing missionarywork in Canada Jamaica and Nassau Englands base of supply for block ade running during the civilwarin favor of annexation There is a large annexation party in Canada but it has received very little encourage ment from us The American people or a large section of them appear to be rapidly forgetting their history and traditions and some of them have descended to the meanness of apolo gizing for our glorious past They would eliminate from our school his t t rro independence Every citizen who protests against the proposed entan gling alliance is dubbed a tail twister Such cheap cant daunts only moral cowards No man need be ashamed to be called a tail twis ter in common with George Wash ington Thomas Jefferson James Mad ison James Monroe Andrew Jackson and Ulysses Grant Under the latters administration England was made to pay 815000000 for her piracy during the war of the rebel lion Alliance with England would im mediately stop Irish recruiting in our armies In every engagement since this war began as in all former wars Irish blood has been shed for Amer ica It is unnecessary to eulogize the Irish soldier His record is the certificate of his valor and his devotion I would hate however to see his constancy strained by forcing him to serve with British troops Were it not for the strong counterpoise of military discipline wjjich no man more respects the zz e of his gun would point totfKTthe red coats as truly as the neeufe points to the pole He would obey his officers but his civilian brother would not volunteer to reenforce him No English all- s s i ance would make up for this defec tion Instead of the Irish becoming less Irish and more American as the New York Times puts it I sincerely wish the Anglomen pf the

this period of the year for the sweltering public to devote much thought to baseball pugilism and the sports and besides the war has absorbed the attention of everyone In spite of these hind rances the CaseDobs fight is attract ing a marked amount of interest Es pecially will this be true in the event of Dobbs winning over the Oregonian Although Case was given a terrible beating before and finally knocked completely out in the last roundand almost the last ten seconds he gave a good account of himself all the way through and at no time after the sec ond round did the colored man hold him cheap In New York there are several big fights on hand not the least among them being the RuhlinSharkey con test which is set for June 29 Maher and Goddard are soon to come to gether again and unless another accident happens what a slaughter it will be- The battle between George Dixon and Ben Jordan will also prove a strong attraction as it is an inter national affair Jordan is the best

will have to stay upall night The fight between the Kid and Choynski has been set for August 27 There is some talk of bringing Lansing and McDonough together before the Kentucky Athletic Club for some time in July McDonough is the man who fought a draw with Australian Jimmy Ryan last Derby night A contest between him and Lansingought to prove an exceedingly interestingcontest Baseball has suffered more than any other sport from the war but then the poor showing of the Col onels has had a great deal to do with the falling off in attendance here in Louisville The fans are getting tired of going down to the park year after year to watch a tail end club get everlastingly lambasted by one of the other eleven clubs Louisville has not had a winning team since it entered the big League and

resolution theHon Champ Clark of Missouri said- Jingoism is more rapid in its progress than quick consumption So virulent is it that many are now advocating an alliance with England certainly the most preposterous idea that was ever hatched in the brain of man Are we to give no heed to the lessons of history Are we to scout the wisdom of the fathers Are we to take leave of our senses because we are engaged in a struggle with a third rate power which vigorously pressed willbe gloriously concluded in time to celebrate our triumph on the Fourth of July next Who is to be the gainer of such an arrangement Certainly not America Mr Joseph Chamber lains gush about what an inspiring spectacle it would be to see our sol diers and British troops fighting to gether under the Star Spangled Ban ner and the Union Jack may be wis dom from his standpoint but from ours it is sheer nonsenseunmitigated- bosh After thrashing Spain we have no enemies to fight but England has a superabundance of them Like the poor they are always with her be cause John Bulls longing eyes are always fixed on sombody elses pos sessions An alliance with England Have gentlemen considered what a partner ship with that quarrelsome nation means It means that our armies would soon be fighting against the French in Africa against the Rus sians in Afghanistan against the Ger mans in China against the Japanese in Korea against the Italians in the Mediterranean gainst the Austrians in the Danube and the Turks in the Golden Horn The best blood of America would enrich foreign soil from the Punjab to St Petersburg and from the Cape of Good Hope to the Land of the Midnight Sun That is jingoism run mad Is not that a rav HuH nt i t bL tM fathers are willing to so sacrifice their sons Who is going to pay the piper for

of cash by every other method known among men short of sending an army for her liberation In fact the armed enemies of Great Britain have found a great deal of substantial aid in this country Now as a part and parcel of this fan tastic grotesque and suicidal jingo scheme we are to join hands with the merciless oppressors of the Irish race God forbid that we should be such howling idiots The

strokes by the action recently taken in behalf of young Phil Sheridan to whom he has given an appointment to West Point he has honored the memory of the nations cavalry hero gratified the desire of that heros widow pro moted the ambition of the boy him self and probably secured to the military service of the country a youth whose inheritance both of temperament and tradition marks him out as one of our future great military men For Young Phil is said to be a veritable chip of the odbockshort and stout in build generous and quicktempered in char acter studious and inclined to scien tific pursuits he will probably grow even more like his father with increasing years It had long been Mrs Sheridans desire that young Phil might enter West Point Academy on the fiftieth anniversary of ifiis 4cb Uhers entrance which occurred JUly i 1848 but all previous efforts m that line had failed and she had almost given up when President IcKinley heard of her wish and it is owing to his good offices that the coming July i will see the entrance of Phil Sheridans son and namesake Hitherto he has been carefully trained under his mothers watchful eye and his friends predict for him a brilliant military career Irish News Notes The ruins of the Abbey and Castle at Donegal of great historical and an tiquarian interest having been hand byLord600 pounds renovating the walls It is proposed to rebuild the archway of the old Abbey which fell in some time ago It is to be hoped an im provement committee with the assist ance of a patriotic public will do something to alter the conditions of the tombs and graves which have fallen into disordeP and decay and to clear away the rank weeds and net tles which abound all over The members of the Limerick Cor poration have commenced a good workthe renaming of their streets after patriotic Irishmen This is a grand example for the towns and cities of Ireland In nearly all the princi pal streets are named after English Kings and Queens and after some local land magnates the pillars of the British power in Ireland It is time to change these and Limerick has commenced the good business in an opportune time It is hoped a clear sweep will be made of those reminders of British power and cruelty and also of Irish degradation The Cashel 98 Club achieved a great success in their celebrating the memory of the heroes of 98 by a torchlight procession
