We have, it may be said, as yet reached only the formative period.

There is, however, another view of the matter which should not be lost sight of, and which must show the most unthinking how worse than foolish is all this nonsense. It is not long since one of the greatest statesmen America ever produced, the lamented James G. Blaine, pointed out to his countrymen on what lines Anglo-Saxon IRISH AMERICAN. GREAT CROWDS 3 About half an hour after the cadets left the hall Company A, Hibernian Knights, led by the band, marched in. They were cornmanded by Capt. P. J. Breen. The men were handsomely uniformed and went through a Knights' drill in a very creditable manner. The Knights were all big, fine looking fellows. Every movement was ma.de as if the company was After the drill run by clock-worCapt. Breen and his men were congratulated upon their fine showing. Then the Knights and the cadets drilled together, to the delight of the large crowd. It was not until after dark that dancing began in earnest. When it did Andy Ludwig's band was kept busy, and at no time between 8 o'clock and midnight did that band get five minutes' rest. It was a little after 8 o'clock when Capt. Thomas Clihes, in the absence of President Johh A. Murphy, called for order in the park and introduced Hon. Matt O'Doherty as the orator of the day. Mr. O'Doherty made one of his masterly speeches. In ho uncertain words he opposed the proalliance. His posed in full will be found elsewhere speech in these columns. Mr. Thomas P. Walsh followed Mr. O'Doherty in a brief but humorous speech. His remarks caused a great deal of merriment among the ladies. After that the young folks were left free to dance to their heart's content. The dancers owe a special vote of thanks to Mr. John J. Lannon, the music director. k. Anglo-American Anglo-maniac- s nations by drawing our country away from the dearest traditions and from what has been long recognized as the established policy of our Government and people toward other nations and people, "Friendship for all but entangling alliances with none." This has been the doctrine of every American statesman of distinction from Washington to Lincoln and from Lincoln to McKinley. We have prospered by its observance, and it is safe to say that the United States will not depart from it, no matter how cunningly British agents and sympathisers on both sides of the Atlantic may work for an alliance. Our war with Spain has been a godsend to them. They have done all in their power Id take advantage of it. The British Government controlling, tho telegraphic cables from London, has loaded them daily with unblushing falsehoods. We have been told over ' and over again that France is opposed to us; that the Germans are ready to assail Dewey in Manila; that Russia is ready to swoop down upon us, and that England is the only friend we have upon the wide earth. They have literally bombarded our ears with their lying reports, and the representatives of France, Germany and Russia have been kept busy in making public and official repudiation of their Anglo-American Spend a Pleasant Day with tho Hibernians The Nntlonnl Holiday Was Appropriately Observed. The Ancient Order of Hibernians of Louisville did themselves proud when they celebrated July 4. Not less than 10,000 people visited the park during the day and night. All left the park satisfied that the Ancient Order ot Hibernians were a fixture in Louisville. The picnic at Phoenix Hill Park was given by the County Board, A. O. H. The County Board is composed of representatives of the various divisions in Jefferson county. This year the County Board is made up as follows: Senator Morgan, of Alabama. He is one of the leading American statesmen of the present day, and is unalterably opposed 'to an alliance with any European nation. HURRAH FOR THE NEXT THAT DIES. The following poem is said to have been written by an Irish officer in the English service while on duty in a city in East India in which the plague was doing its terrible work. The inhabitants, particularly the foreigners, were dying cvefy day by hundreds, when twesty officers of the English army, without the shadow of a hope of ever seeing their country or friends, formed a club and sought to drown their senses in the wine cup, and by jest and song to divert their thoughts from the terrible and irrevocable fate which each one knew awaited him. The author of this poem died almost before the echoes of "Hurrah for the Next That Dies" had ceased to reverberate, and in less than a week every member of the club had crossed the "sable shore:" We meet beneath the sounding rafter, The walls around are bare; As they shout to our peals of laughter It seems the dead are there; , But stand to your glasses steady, We drink to our comrades' eyes; Quaff a cup to the dead already And hurrah for the next that dies. Not here are the goblets gleaming, Not here is the vintage-sweet- ; 'Tis cold as our hearts are growing And dark as the doom we meet. But stand to your glasses steady, s rise: And sQanshrlsaa A cup to the dead already, Hurrah for the next that dies. Not a sigh for the fate that darkles, Not a tear for the friends who sink; We'll fall 'mid the sparkles As mute as the wine we drink. So stand to your glasses steady, ' Tis that a respite .buys; One cup to the dead already, Hurrah for the next that dies. wine-cup'- s falsehoods. There is not the smallest room for doubt that the British Government and its hirelings both here and in Anglo-Saxo- n develop the foreign trade and commerce of the nation as against European competition. With that insight and clearness of perception and expression for which he was alike remarkable he sought not along the parallels of latitude but those of longitude, pointing to the Central and South American republics, which are just now entering upon a period of great improvement and expansion, and with whose political institutions 'and aspirations our people were and are in hearty sympathy. With this idea in mind be had in contemplation Congress and his the famous reciprocity schemes. Blaine failed in the realization of his great plans because he was a little too far in advance of those around him, and it may be of his time; but the wisdom of his judgment has since We been abundantly vindicated. want South American trade. The United States, rather than England, France or Germany, should have the markets of Mexico, Peru, Argentine, Chili and all the rest. How far will the Anglo Saxon bab ble which we just now hear so much of commend us to our South American neighbors? Are they likely to be influenced in our favor by those silly scribblers who are daily heaping insult upon them and the race to which mos of them belong, and who are never so happy as when prating of ? the alleged superiority of the Pan-Americ- Anglo-Saxon- If something is not done to restrain them our country and Government, while engaged in administering a well merited chastisement to poor old Spain, stands an excellent chance of losing the friendship .of other countries with whom we have neither quar rel nor cause for quarrel and with whotn it is our interest to preserve the warmest and closest relationship.

Hence the slanders on Germany, France, Austria and Russia which we find in the daily press, and usually in telegrams coming from The trick will not work, England. however. Our Government or people will not be deceived by it. If one wishes to know what an alliance, such as Chamberlain is scheming for, would mean for America, he has only to consider what it would have de-- ' manded of us in the past fifty years had such an alliance been in existence. Let us look at India. The British flag floats there, and under its shadow millions of human beings have perished and are still annually perishing of starvation, assassinated by British law and British rulers, in testimony, I pecupresume, of the fitness to govern; that is, to rob liar and murder weaker nations. Let us suppose that an alliance existed when England set about stamping out the Sepoy insurrection in India. How should we like to have had our at tillerymen aid their British allies in tying the captured Hindoo prisoners back to back and in blowing them from the cannon's mouth? Imagine the men and officers of our navy in the bombardment of Alexandria or in making war upon those brave Germans of the Transvaal who under Paul Kruger have dared to establish a republic in Africa without England's permission. Think of the disgrace participation in such crimes against justice and humanity would have entailed, and then say whether or not you are in favor of an alliance. But look further, casting sentiment aside and having regard only for the practical and expedient, do we want a war with Russia, France or Germany, cr with all or any of them? Surely not. They have done us no wrong. Millions of our best and Jruest citizens are of German birth or extraction, and both France and Russia have been noted for their friendliness to America. An alliance with 'England would in effect pledge us to a war against them; they would certainly so understand it, and we would not have long to wait for an alliance against us. However others may feel on the subject, American citizens of Irish blood and descent, who know to their cost what a union in any form with England means, can have but one mind and one prayer in regard to it, and that is that the God of nations may save America from the infamy and disgrace which a British alliance would entail and from the national ruin it would be almost certain to bring in its train.

The Ladies' Auxiliary captured all that came their way. at least orltfe a week. It was the most pleasant event that ever transpired at the hill. Now is the time to send in your dollar and get this paper for a year. Edward Clancy contributed a great deal to the success of the celebration. Tom Keenan was the idol of the cadets. He entertained the entire company. The dancing hall was a center of attraction. The young ladies were pretty and sprightly. John H. Hennessy was one of the most quiet but active members of the Executive Committee. The fine impression created by the Hibernian Knights will result in large accessions to their rauks. Col. John Barrett was welcomed by all. He is one of the old, old guard, though he doesn't look it. All were pleased to see Messrs. Cusick and Coleman. They came direct from the convention. Regret was expressed when Bernard J. Kavanaugh was compelled to leave to attend to his reportorial duties. William T. Meehan has a natural ability for making things pleasant for everybody. He was the right man in the right place. Lawrence J. Mackey worked long and hard to make the celebration a Such men know no such success. thing as failure. The officers of the Ladies' Auxiliary pledged their earnest support, and are quite enthusiastic in their efforts to make this publication a great success. Col. Joseph Taylor was in command, owing to the absence of President Murphy, and most successfully did he perform the many arduous duties imposed upon him, in addition to putting up a great drill. The reception tendered the Kentucky Irish American was most gratifying. Five hundred subscribers in one day, and assurances of twice as many more, speak volumes for the interest of the order in its behalf. Quite a number of people were disappointed in not hearing Mr. William M.

The object of the auxiliary is the elevation morally and socially of all women of the Irish race. The work of this body is performed quietly and has already resulted in untold good. For many years past the Ancient Order of Hibernians have celebrated the Fourth of July with a picnic at Phoenix Hill Park. Other societies have tried in vain to secure the park on that day, but the park managers have alwys given the Ancient Order the preference. The park comes high, but they must have it. This year was no exception. They wanted the park and they got it regardless of expense. Every feature of the day was successful. Providence seemed to favor the order on this last Fourth. The day was bright and clear. Not a cloud was in the sky and the weather was just cool enough. Many people arrived at the park before noon, but it was not until about 3 o'clock that the crowds began to pour in. From that time until 10 o'clock at night a' steady stream of humanity poured into the grounds. The first feature of the celebration was the drill by St. Patrick's Cadets. These cadets were boys, forty in number, from St. Patrick's parochial school. They were neatly uniformed and well drilled Headed by a band of music the boys marched into the big hall and went through various evolutions in a manner that would reflect credit on some of the volunteer companies that have organized to fight for Uncle Sam.

Since then, in spite of a return to unfavorable climatic conditions, growth has been fairly vigorous and well sustained, and the result is that, with the exception of the later turnips and mangels, the great bulk of the crops are up to the level of the average crops of the past few years. There are, of course, cases in which the grass lands are very bare this year, and we find that this is so in the County Kildare and in certain districts in Leitrim and Wicklow. The hay crop is not of satisfactory character, though the yield of fodder seems to be regarded as up to a good average..

Coleman addressed the members, and for thirty minutes spoke entertainingly of the benefits, etc., of the order, and gave the members some excellent advice on the conducting of the affairs of the division. Col. Coleman left the same evening for Louisville, and expressed himself as much pleased with his first visit to Division 1 of Frankfort. Bro. P. H. Coleman, Jr., Financial Secretary of Division No. 1, A. O. H., left Monday upon a three weeks' business trip.

Or is it credible that there are, even in Boston, "mixed opin ions on the present war? The cable has told us of the New York marching to a man to the front when asked to do so, and of "dandy" regiments, with the reputation of being uncontaminated with Irish members, being disbanded through decidedly preferring the neighborhood of Coney Island to that of Cuba at the present time.

Mr. Bell got a judgment against the order for $5,000 becauseit refused longer to observe a contract which he had gotten from five or six of the incorporators at the very begin ning of its existence by which his paper was made the official organ forever! An appeal from that judgment will be taken to the Court of Appeals. By the order of the convention at St. Louis and the direction of the Jefferson Circuit Court, Chancery Divis ion, in this city, $14,000 of the reserve fund will be used to pay all outstand ing approved death claims; $2,000 will be used to pay outstanding claims against the general fund, and 87,000 will be set aside to procure a bondsman in the Bell appeal and, if the judgment should be affirmed, pay the judgment with costs and interest. This still leaves in the reserve fund $10,000 or $12,000, and if that is paid into the new "emergency fund," as it ought to be, the order can now go on with a very low assessment against the members and with great success. The troubles in Illinois and Missouri over the reserve fund and the Bell suit and other matters having been now gotten out of the way, there is no reason why the order should not continue the remarkable growth which it has enjoyed during the last two years. - IRISH AMERICAN. very practical advantages from the constant attendance and practica suggestions of Miss Curtis.

Charles O'Donnell, of Chicago, 111. The business of the meeting was to put into effect the recommendations .adopted at the last national conven tion and formulate plans for increas ing the membership under the new .administration. Thar this result will be accomplished is evidenced by the unanimous action taken upon all ques tions coming before the board. Supreme President O'Donnell is a leading citizen of Chicago, and is rery enthusiastic over the prospects of the Knights and Ladies. He was .here for several days, and expressed himself as being very favorably impressed with Louisville. This city is represented in the board by Dr. William B. Doherty, Supreme Medical Examiner; Mary E. Sheridan, Supreme Treasurer, and T. F. Henley, Supreme Trustee, all of whom are so well known as to render further notice unnecessary. HAWAIIAN ANNEXATION.
