Before Goode sailed South with the battalions of marines, on the transport Pan ther, he had been for the past three years the First Sergeant at the marine barracks, and was popular and well liked by both officers andthb enlisted men under him.

In a letter to his father he says: "I can say that I was at the gun that fired the first shot on this side." Gorporal John ' J. Kelley, who was recently in Boston from Chickamauga recruiting, was given a reception by the members of Shields Division, A. O.

J TO "REMEMBER THE MAINE" At the time of the memorial serv ices in Havana cemetery over the graves of sailors who went down in the Maine Father Chidwick asked and received irom Capt. Sigsbce permission to carry away from the wreck any bronze or brass that might be brought up, of which he proposed to have made small crosses, to be given as mementos to the families of the sailors who lost their lives in the disaster. ' When the wreckers came north they- - brought to Father Chidwick, who was then in New York, about 75 pounds of brass, all they could rescue .from the deck of the Maine, and he man of the Committee on Foreign Relations, and now an esteemed member of that committee, he has held front rank with publicists who have to deal with the delicate problems relating to our foreign policy. His service has been a continual demon stration of the fact that the confidence of his colleagues in his judgment was not misplaced. Senator Morgan not only holds high ground of information upon our relations with foreign countries, controlled by our established policies, but he is acquainted with the attitude of foreign nations toward one another. The politics of Europe is an open book to him. With reference to our occupancy and holding of the Philippines the Senator was asked: "You see nothing then, consequent upon the handling of the Philippines question whicht should require us to make alliance with other nations?" Connected with any event that is likely to grow out of our relations to the Philippines, that is now within the range of probabilities, there is no occasion to desire a league or com bination with any Eu 'opean or Asiatic power. "Our national independence in cludes the proposition of freedom from alliance with other nations as an essential element of its value. Men have come to these shores to be rid of the domination of other powers. They have taken up their abode in a land whose policy since the formation of its government has been to hold aloof from the i,ionarchie of Europe.

MURPHY. '98. Porty Thousand Wexford Men tho Struggle Grnt Inn EsmoiiuVs Speech. 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 the1 removal from Ireland's grateful and loving memory of the name and fame of those who, at any time and under 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 40,000 people were present. Notwithstanding its enormous proportions, the gathering was one of the most orderly that has ever met in the county. A monster procession was formed at the Fair Green, which marched to the hill, followed by thousands of other people. Notable aud spirited addresses were made, and the greatest enthusiasm was manifested. Sir Thomas Grattan Esmonde delivered an able speech, in the course of which he made a strong indictment against England concerning her treatment of Ireland. He said in part: "A year ago the people of England celebrated their jubilee. They celebrated the growth of their empire; the extension of their power; the development of their institutions; the increase of their wealth and prosperity. In that celebration every one of their colonies and dependencies was represented. But the nation which had played a foremost part in building tip England's greatness; the nation that had won her battles for her, had governed her colonies for her, directed her diplomacy for her; that nation Ireland was not represented at those festivities. Ireland refused to join in them, and rightly refused. "For what had Ireland to celebrate, as the result of her connection with England, in the period c&vered 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 Ennis-corthy, any circumstances, have lived or died in defense of Ireland's nationhood. Foremost among Ireland's heroes are the men of '98. And foremost among the heroes of '98 are the men of Wexto celeford. We are here brate their jubilee, proudly, lovingly, and to place on record our appreciation of their heroism in a manner beWe owe fitting their descendants. 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 yearly to the amount of 3,000,000 of Irish money. She takes advantage of us, under her perpetual disguise of generosity, in every transaction of every kind, whether it be the disestablishment of 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 strength. "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 satisfactory if we could settle our differences with England in the same fashion as was used at Benburb, at Fontenoy, and on Oulart Hill. But under existing conditions such a settlement is out of the question. England is strong enough to keep us down for the presene, and we know we have no chance of resisting her in But will she always be strong arms. enough to keep us down by force ? We may not live to see it,b ut our sons will surely see the day when England's denial of Ireland's rights by to-da- y and America, in recent times. We Irish are but a weak people; we haye no empire; we have often been beaten in the course of our history. But po man has ever been able to say of jus that we have been afraid. We have never hesitated to stand up for wliat we believed to be. our rights, regardless of consequenees. We do not know ourselves what cowardice is. But we know what it means in others. And when we sec England surrendering, retreating, giving way now' to Russia, now to Germany, and now; to France, whenever any of these powers find fault with her policy, we know it is because she feels herself powerless to resist them. She dare not fight with a hostile Ireland on her flank. And well they know this abroad. But the nation that fears to face a challenge will not have longtto wait before a quarrel is forced upon ' ' her. will have reason to "And England rue the day she rejected Ireland's proffered friendship unless she remedies her mistake in time. For the moment she is strong enough to coerce Ireland. How much louger mil she be strong enough to coerce Ireland? Will she be able to continue the coercion of Ireland in the event of a Europern war? When it comes to a question, as it may very shortly come, of conciliating Ireland or losing India; of re establishing an Irish Parliament or evacuating Egypt, England will realize the opportunities she has recklessly thrown away. In this matter we are perfectly frank. VVc are ready to make friends with England if England will make friends with us. Standing here on this historic hill, where the last great sacra-fic- e 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 bac our Parliament.

Or because England's remedies for Ireland's -made grievances have invariably been carried out at Ireland's expense? now at the expense of one class of Irishmen, and now at the cost of another? Was Ireland to celebrate the fact that all through these years England has steadily and remorselessly drained her of her resources and her wealth by taxation? Was she to rejoice because, under England's fiscal laws, each of her industries had been crippled and destroyed 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 ninety-eigh- t 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, plundered as she is, insulted as she is, had still courage and honesty sufficient to decline to participate in the rejoicings of an empire in which Nationalist Ireland has no place. we celebrate a jubilee "But of our own a jubilee in which all Irishmen can join; a jubilee 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 Ireland's historic memories, it comes to us sanctified by Irish blood and hallowed by Irish We have few successes to tears. chronicle in our history. are mainly chronicled in the histories of other peoples. On the, other- hand, we have many disasters to Fcord. But there k one success Englishever-increasito-da- y Our-suc-cess- one thing- certain, namely, that Eng land will not be able to resist the eventual recovery by Ireland of her legislative independence. The times we live in are full of portents. The great nations of the world are developing, expanding, arming; commercial 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 other's claims and aspirations, there is one power against which their undisguised and united antagonism is directed. That power is England. England is the possessor of a vast and valuable empire; but it is an empire easy to attack to defend. and difficult 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 anxious, 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 just 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 hold out 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 fearless soldiers of America's own war of independence. "The moral 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 appreciated abroad, what is the significance of the long list of England's 'graceful concessions and 'surrenders,' and 'retreats in Europe, Asia, Africa - lal riglits,' ear to our con stitutional demands, while she refuses to restore to us those legislative pow ers and privileges she deprived us of so cruelly in 1800, we are enemies of England, we are enemies of 'the Empire, we are rebels in sentirnent, and should occasion offer, we will be rebels in act and deed." .'

The Irish believe, with their illustrious countryman, Henry Grattan, that the 'United States is "the last refuge of They opthe liberties of mankind." with England bepose the alliance cause they honestly believe that such .a compact would destroy that "last refuge." The Tory wave of feeling now sweeping over the t country threatens America with the humiliation of returning to the vomit of British 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. Congress 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 itrljta-tioof English imperialism.

The ruins of the Abbey and Castle at Donegal, of great historical and antiquarian interest, having been hand-feover to the Board of Works by Lord Arran, that body is expending 600 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 improvement committee, with the assistance of a patriotic public, will do something to alter the conditions of the tombs and graves which have fallen into disorde? and decay, and to clear away the rank weeds and nettles which abound all over. The members of the Limerick Corporation have commenced a good work the renaming of their streets after patriotic Irishmen. This is a grand example for the towns and cities of Ireland. In nearly all the principal 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 and illumination.

No man need be ashamed to be called a "tail twister" in common with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson and Ulysses Grant. Under the latter's administration England was made to pay 815,000,000 (or her piracy during the war of Alliance with England would 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 America. 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, yich no man more respects, thedKsule of his gun would point tojjP" the red coats as truly as the neeule points to the pole.

Instead of the Irish becoming ''less Irish and more American," as the New York Times puts it, I sincerely wish the Anglomen of the United States would become less British and more American. The Irish are the truest Americans on this soil today. They wish to keep the United States a Republic they have no disposition toward imperial sys tems. Theybelievb in vantage points, coaling stations and harbors of re fuge for our ships in Hawaii, the Phil ippines, the West Indies and elsewhere, but they have no desire to grab territory from weak nations, af ter the British fashion.

McDonough is the man who fought a draw with "Australian Jimmy" Ryan last Derby night. A contest between him and Lansing ought to prove an exceedingly interesting contest.

How can we be made happier, more prosperous or more puissant by such an amazing performance? Time and time again we have expressed our sympathy with Ireland by speeches, by resolutions, by public meetings, by large contributions 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 fantastic, grotesque and suicidal jingo scheme, we are to join hands with the merciless oppressors of the Irish race.
