Anthony Kesseler, the "Saint of Harlem." When the ship went down he was granting absolution. Indifferent to his own life, he died saving souls; his face turned toward heaven, his hands outstretched in blessine.

He was the best loved priest in He was known the New York. length and breadth of Harlem as a saint. The Catholic church mourns his loss. No priest was ever honored with higher ceremonies than was he at the requiem mass at St. Joseph's on Tuesday, and the extraordinary honor of a Pontifical high mass at the Catholic Cathedral was driven him, Archbishop Corrigan presiding. Mrs. A. de Lacasse, the only woman survivor of the wreck of the Bourgogne, and an of his heroism, has written to the New York Sunday Journal this inspiring story of his heroic last moments and of his death : , Father Kesseler was the hero of the, Bourgogne. He died that others might live. He forgot to don his life preserver, and gave n,o thought to the battle, unto death for a place in the when the ship was sinking. He spent all the precious moments when he might have been saving his life in trying to save the souls of others. He died at his post on the deck of his vessel, his face turned the darkling sky, his hands outstretched in blessing. He deserves canonization, this late Saint Anthony of active virtues. He died while granting absolution. He would have saved while others destroyed. I am a Protestant, but I revere this Catholic priest as I do no other hero of the world. The sublimity of his sacrifice appeals to my religious fervor. The picturesqueness of his act challenges my artistic appreciation.

The waves lashing the sides of the vessel sounded like the growl of a great hungry beast. To add to all this terror we were in The steamship gave evidence of settling and listing. It was as though the foundation was passing from beneath our feet, as though there were a new heaven and a new earth, from which we were being banished to hell. It was a time of horror to make men mad. I heard the scream of a woman. It was the shriek of one who had just received a mortal blow. Some one shouted that an Italian had stabbed a woman who had tried to get in a boat before him. The babel of voices was like a chorus of lost souls. I felt that my reason was going. A hush fell upon the shrieking,'' fighting mob. Father Kesseler was coming. He semi-darknes- s. or live together. His fingers touched our heads for an instant. "Courage and peace for the end has come," I heard him say. He passed on to the next and the next. He could stop for but an instant', for there were so many in need of a blessing 770 souls and there were groups collecting and awaiting him in kneeling attitude further on, but each bent head in our group received his touch and his blessing. The faces about me had been white with terror before. Their owners had crouched in an attitude that was abject to animalism. But when Father Kesseler had touched and blessed and passed on the faces lost their tense" ness. The brightness of a purpose filled them. The figures rose. The priest had given them the courage to battle for life and courage to yield if the battle was against them. He helped some to live and the rest to die. I believe that even then the gates of Paradise had opened upon the sight of Father Kesseler. The wind blew his white hair about his forehead and cheeks. It looked like the silver halo of a transfigured saint. And still his hands were stretched out in blessing. The water rose above his waist. It reached his breast. It covered his outstretched hinds, and then I dared not look longer. A gurgle as from a monster throat sounded in our ears. We were drawn to the outer edge of a black, hungry maelstrom and we, kneV the ship had gone down. Of bur rescue by the good Captain Henderson, of the Cromartyshire, every one knows.

Anth'ony, TCeseeler was the pastor in charge of St. Joseph's parish. We attended the requiem for, like our Saviour, died that others might be saved. We noticed Father Kesseler on the day of our sailing. Whether he was a first or second cabin or steerage passenger no one seemed to know. He was seen in all thrje parts of the ship, but he stayed longest in the steerage, least in the first cabin.' In the unspeakable hours of that morning he crucified and buried self. and were not for him while one soul on the Bourgogne was yet unshriven. He granted absolution to half a hundred, and there was no one to grant it to him at the last moment, when he died at duty, none but Him whose blessings are the most efficacious, the Most High. The memory of his face as it looked while he was sinking my husband and I will carry through our lives as a benediction. So died and ascended into heaven the bravest man I ever knew, so was translated the loftiest soul, the soul of Father Kesseler, the hero of the Bourgogne. Life-boats were 'numerous volunteer officers in the regular army, and it was regarded as a considerable distinction. The appointment was made, and then, as an additional compliment to General Sheridan, instead of sending him the commission by an ordinary officer from the department, Mr. Stanton decided that I would better deliver it. I started on October 22, going by special train to Harper's Ferry, whither I had telegraped for an escort to be ready for me. I was delayed, so that I did not get away from Harper's Ferry until about 3 o'clock on the morning of October 23. It was a distance of about fifty miles to Sheridan, and by riding all day I got there about 11 o'clock at night. Sheridan had gone to bed; but in time of war one never delays in carrying out orders, whatever their The, General was awakened nature. and soon was out of his tent, and there, by the flare of an army torch, and in the presence of a few sleepy and of my own tired escort, I presented Sheridan his commission as a Major General in the regular army. He did not say much, nor could he have been expected to un der the circumstances, though he showed lively satisfaction in the Government's appreciation of his services, and spoke most heartily, I recall, of the manner in which the administra tion had always supported him. The next morning after the little ceremony the General asked me if I would not like to ride through the army with him. It was exactly what I did 'want to do, and we were soon on horseback and off. We rode through the entire army that morning, dismounting now and then to give me an opportunity to pay my respects to officers whom I knew. I was struck, in riding the lines, by the universal demonstration of affection for Sheridan. Everybody seemed to be personally attached to him. He was like the most popular man after an election the' whole force everywhere honord him. Finally I said to the General:' "I wish you would explain one thing to me.

We have heard of Clontarf, Fontenoy, Albuera, Cremona and Waterloo, and we always admire noble and patrotic men where found. But, my friends, history has never recorded the deeds of a braver or more patriotic band than Meagher and his Brigade at FredericksThe Confederates were burg. behind a stone wall four feet high and on heights crowned with artillery.

Yet again, again and again they returned to the charge until they left of their number on the field of their heroic action. Never, says a London Times correspondent, was more undoubted courage displayed by the sons of Erin than during those six frantic charges which they directed against the almost inpregnable position of their foe. That any mortal man could have carried the position, defended as it was, seems idle for a moment to believe. But the bodies which lie in dense masses within a few yards of Col. Walton's guns are the best evidence what manner of men they were who pressed on to death, with the dauntlessness of a race which has gained glory on 1,000 battlefields, and never more richly deserved it than at the foot of Mary's Heights on De cember 13, 1862.

He and his five brothers engaged the English armed schooner Margaretta with a lumber vessel and captured her. This was the first naval battle of the war, and the victory was due to the ability, courage and patriotism of a son of the Emerald Isle. All through the Continental Congress some of the most prominent members were furnished by Ireland. And in the convention called to frame a constitution which would give to the country a stable and well ordered government we find in the list such names as Livingston and Patterson, of New Jersey, the latter of whom advo cated the States' rights plan; Fitzsim ons, of Pennsylvania, the great finan cier; McHenry and Daniel Carroll, of Maryiand; Read, of Delaware; Williamson and Spaight, of North Caro lina, and Rutledge and Butler, of South Carolina, all of whom took a very prominent part in the proceedings and debates of the convention. But it sometimes happens that behind closed doors or when we are in suitable company we are very courageous and patriotic. The test comes when we must have our names appear in print or sign some important document. Let us look over the list and ascertain where our forefathers stood when Congress declared that "the colonies are and ought to be free and independent States." Among the list of signers we find the names of Thornton, Livingston, Smith, Taylor, Read, McKean, Rutledge, Lynch and Car roll of Carrollton. It is related that of the cannon. The guns charged with grapeshot opened in their Very faces, and when the smoke lifted there lay the lifeless form of Montgomery, almost under the very wheels of the artillery, where his headlong courage had carried him. Another of the conspicuous Generals of revolutionary times was that grand and grim old warrior, Sullivan. He it was with Langdon who struck the first blow in freedom's cause by the capture of Fort William and Mary with all its stores. There was not a General engaged in the battles of Trenton, Princeton, Staten Island or Brandywine who exhibited greater courage or patriotism than Sullivan. And when placed in command of the northern division of the army his expedition against the Indians, who, incited by the English and Tories to rob, plunder and murder the colon ists living on the border, was one of the grandest of the war. The famous march of Sherman to the sea can not be compared to it. Jt was simply a war of annihilation. But Sullivan's heart relented when he came to the Genesee valley, one of nature's gardens of Eden. The valley was about twenty miles long by four broad and had scarce a forest tree in it. There were many comfortable frame houses built by the Indians. The tall ripe grass bent before the wind. Com fielfl upon corn field as far as the eye could reach waved in the sunlight; orchards that had been growing for generations were weighed down with a profusion of fruit; cattle grazed on the banks of the river and all was luxuriance and beauty. But his commands were peremptory. An enemy who felt no obligations and kept no faith must be placed beyond Americans or Irismen have more reason to feel the pride of patriotism swelling within their bosoms at the rehearsal of that midnight scene at Philadelphia when the result of the war was made known. It was a grand spectacle for both. Lieut. Col. Tighl-marode from Yorktown to Philadelphia to notify Congress of Cornwallis' surrender. He reached the house of Thomas McKean, the Irish President of Congress, at midnight, whom he aroused from sleep to receive the glad watchtidings. The man called out the hour, half-patwelve o'clock, and Cornwallis is city taken. That started from its slumbers and lights flitted through the streets like a cresThe old State cent illumination. House bell rang out its treble notes on the crisp morning air and the hoarse cannon thundered forth its double bass in reply.

But, my friends, it is not necessary to confine ourselves to our earlier history to find deeds of heroism and patriotism recorded to the credit Both in the of Mexican and civil wars some of the most important battles were commanded and fought by Irishmen.

The-lettto-la- nd er Irish-American- s. Spanish-America- n week: Ladies and Gentlemen, Friends and Fellow Citizens: The subject, Irish Americans, which has been assigned to me on this occasion is one which is very appropriate for the Fourth of July. It comes natural for us to join in the refrain: GoringTile bells aiul fife thTfguns And fling the starry banner out; Shout freedom tilt your lisping ones Give back their cradle shout. For if there is one race of people more than another which may take special glory unto itself on independence day it is the Irish. Before we " is as follows: enter upon the subject, however, let me warn you that I do not intend to talk to you about the soldiers or statesmen of Ireland, for I shall confine myself to the noble part which Ireland's sons played in gaining and maintaining the principles of liberty in our glorious American Union. And if we take the trouble and time to look up the matter we shall find that the Irish were among the first to contend for that chief principle of liberty which is so dear to the heart of every man, the right to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience. In 1664 Dougan, an Irishman, called together the representatives of the colony of New York to frame new laws, and among these was one guaranteeing this right. From that day until the close of the civil war at Appomatox Court House there is not a page in our country's history which is not made more inspiring by some noble, brilliant or patriotic act of our forefathers. The first thing naturally which engages our attention is the process by which we became a nation. It is not necessary for me to dwell upon the causes which brought about our separation from England. But in all great movements of this kind there are always a great many preliminary measures intended to bring about the right kind of enthusiasm, so that finally the paramount object may be attained. This movement required agitation, resolutions and speech-maing, and the cause of independence recruited some of its most eloquent and influential leaders from the Irish. Among these we find such names as Rodgers, McWhorter, Allison, Carroll and O'Brien. In regard to the latter history tells us that during revolutionary times the great rallying places were around the liberty poles, which consisted of tall trees stripped of their branches except a tuft of Irish pcea at the top.

We embarked here-las- t Friday evening and had to fight every day until yesterday. On Saturday last we had our first fight and two men of my .company were killed. On Sunday we fought about all day. We had 200 men and we killed about 200 of the enemy, wounded nearly, 100 and took eighteen prisoners. "We fought night and day incessantly without sleep for four days. The enemy came through the woods at night and attacked our camp, which is pretty well fortified now. At the time we landed here we did not have a thing to protect us. It is surprising that the Spaniards did not attack us-ilarge numbers at first. They never fight square nor in the daylight or open. 1 he day they did they got a bad beating, and we had pnly two companies of marines. 'This country is full of mountains and woods, and at night we easily get lost. So far we only lost two privates, one Sergeant, one Sergeant Major and a doctor, and eight or ten wounded. We all had narrow escapes, and I can tell you it is pretty dangerous business dodging bullets. You may be walk ing along at night on patrol and a man inside a tree can shoot one without trouble. We all hope to get back all right, but we have to obey orders and risk anything. "The weather is very warm here, and we have been lucky in not having rain at all, as it rains very heavy here. We expect the town of Guantanamo to surrender in a few days, for they are starving and our ships have the harbor blockaded. Many of the Spanish have come into camp and given themselves up. They reported the people starving, so we expect the war to be over in a few months. The army has not arrived here yet and 600 of us have to do the fighting.

AMERICAN IRISH PATRIOTS. some- SATURDAY, JULY 23, 1898. THE AMERICAN IRISH HISTORICAL SOCIETY. In our first number we said scent can call attention to the palpable injustice done their race on many occasions. BROTHER HARVEY. This society is doing much to straighten out the history of this country. It was organized about three years ago, and now has a membership of about 1,000, including some of the leading statesmen of the country-Un- ited States Senators, Congressmen and Governors of States. Its President is Mr. Richard A. Mosely, Secretary of the Interstate Commerce Commission, and the Secretary is Mr. Thomas Hamilton Murray, editor of the Pawtucket (R. T.) Tribune. Many of the leading members are Protestants, but are very anxious to see the truth of history preserved and to have credit given to the Irish race where it is due. The work of the society is soon to be published in book or pamphlet form. Annual and stated meetings arc held at which papers of great value are read. Kentucky has two members of this society Edward Fitzpatrick, the newspaper man, and Hon. Matt Mr. FitzO'Doherty, the lawyer. patrick some time ago wrote an .article for the Times which was published in the East. It related to the early Irish in Kentucky and received much praise.

It may not be out of place to again refer to this subject. The "Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick" was organized March 17,1771. Nearly all the early members were prosperous merchants at the time, many of them engaged in the shipping and importing business, and dealing in European and East India goods, teas, wines, silks, Irish linens, etc. Being all Irishmen, or the sons of Irishmen, they, with martial spirit, espoused the American cause. But one member, Thomas Batt, took active part against American liberty, and on March 18, 1776, he was unanimously expelled from the society. Perhaps the most author itative testimony to the correctness of the claim that the Irish predominated in the Revolution is the letter of acceptance in the organization by George Washington himself, written to George Campbell, President of the tomac, and when the stores of forage which were yet to be found were all destroyed or removed, the difficulty of any new offensive operations on either side would be greatly increased. The key to the Shenandoah Valley was, in Sheridan's judgment, the line of the Opequan Creek, which was rather a deep canon than an ordinary water course. Sheridan's idea I understood to be to fall back to the proper defensive point upon that creek, and there to construct fortifications which would effectually cover the approach to the Potomac. CHURCH NEWS. The Sunday-schoo- l at the Dominican church has been disbanded for the summer. It will reopen again ir September. The Rev. Louis G. Deppen gave the retreat to the Sisters of Loretto. He returned this week for the celebration of the feast of St. (the patron of his church), which occurred on yesterday. Mary-Magdale- NOBODY CAME. fellows A crowd of about two weeks ago rented Col. Lum Simons' beautiful Riverview Park for July 12, and announced that they would give a picnic there. July 12, you know, is Orangemen's day. It is celebrated by men who glory in the fact that their country was subjugated by a foreigner William of Orange. No other class of men on God's green footstool, except Orangemen, delight in the fact that their native land was placed under a foreign invader. Well, the 12th of July came and no crowd showed up at Riverview, and the picnic was declared off. It is creditable to Louisville that it has so few of these fellows. hungry-looking The reception of the white vail will take place at St. Catherine of Sienne's Convent near Springfield on August Bishop McCloskey will attend. 4.

I There is no trade probably where more fraud is committed on the pub lic than in printing. Unfair or non union offices impose on their patrons inferior paper, ink and composition, and the imposition is not discovered until the test of time has brought out the defects. There are now in Louis ville a number of printing offices employing boys at small wages and unskilled- men at still lower pay who get out inferior work, and yet merchants patronize them. Merchants who want first class goods go to reliable houses, particularly in the grocery and dry goods line, but many of these same merchants never think of this when they want printingi A peculiarity about the printing trade is that none but skilled men are allowed in the union. In order to be a member thereof a man must have served a regular ap prenticeship and shown his ability to do work well. A union office when rushed may occasionally turn out a poor job, but it is the exception and not the rule. We call attention to this because the general public has been paying no attention to the matter, notably the State printing, the contract for which with one of these offices had to be revoked and readvertised of agree- because of non-unio- n geants, corporals, and private soldiers, in fact, everybody manifesting a per sonal affection for you that I have never seen in any other army, not even the Army of the Tennessee for Grant; I have never seen anything like it.

Mrs. Slattery was born in Ireland, but over fifty years ago came to Louisville with her two children, the surviving one being Mr. John J. Slatn tery, President of the Iron Company. About thirty years ago Mrs. sister, Mrs. John Burke, wife of one of the prominent citizens of died, and, with that devotion which characterized her entire life, she removed to her sister's home and cared for the five orphan children. Of these Misses Kate, Mary and Anna Burke survive to mourn the loss of their beloved aunt, who was their devoted guardian. For many years Mrs. Slattery took a prominent part in social and charitable work in Jefiersonville. Her home .was, the., favorite, mefijjjojj-ijla- r. most refined and cultured people in that city. She did not forget her early acquaintances in Louisville, and was almost a weekly visitor here to the home of her son. Mrs. Slattery was a woman of strong individuality, and impressed all who knew her with her rare good sense. She was a devout Catholic all her life and was always prominent in the affairs of St. Augustine's church, in Jefiersonville, and every member of that congregation will regret her death as a personal loss. In fact, the entire community, without regard to religious belief, esteemed Mrs. Slattery and looked upon her as a model woman. The funeral, which was one of the largest in Jefiersonville for a long time, took place from St. Augustine's church Thursday morning with a sol emn requiem mass. ihe remains were interred in St. Louis cemetery in this city. Todd-DonigaSlat-tery- 's The corner-ston- e of the church of St. Philip Neri was laid last Sunday afternoon in the presence of a large crowd. This new church is to be erected on Floyd, near Woodbine, on a. beautiful lot, and the plans drawn ire for a neat little church costing: about $20,000. This church is in a very pretty part of town, and Father Ackermann, the pastor, has worked hard in its behalf. The contract for frescoing the Cathedral will be let immediately.

There will be two boats in the morning at 8:30 and 10:30, and. one in the afternoon at 1:30. If it can possibly be arranged the orphan girls will be brought in from Preston Park and taken on a boat to the grove. Father Bouchet is heartily in favor of this scheme, and it will be a great treat to the orphans, many of whom' have never even seen the river. The proceeds of the excursion are to be added to the fund for frescoing the Cathedral, which will be done shortly. The ladies who are in charge of this affair are working hard to make it a success. The Paulist Fathers, of New York,. are introducing something new in the l settlement house idea. This is abstinence in connection with' settlements.

Nearly three hundred cowboys, miners, citizens and policians of Arizona enlisted under him, and the whole company rode down to San Antonio and was received with open arms. The women of Prescott presented him with a silk flag (the first raised near Sevilla, Cuba) and the men presented him with a revolver. "Mayor O'Neill, we want to give you a mount. It is not full grown, but merely a Colt. We tell you that it bucks. Every time it bucks head it toward a Spaniard, and you can rest assured that one more Spaniard will bid his godfather, the devil, good morning." "Buckey" then went to the front, ready to give his Colt all the bucking in sight. He wrote his friend Thur-loWeed Barnes a letter from San Antonia, which closed with these characteristic lines. "Iam ready to take all the chances. Who would not gamble for a new star in the flag?" "Buckey's" sobriquet was acquired through his willingness to "buck" any game ever heard of. He "bucked" every obstacle in his path, too, and "bucked" his way to prosperity and into the respect of his fellow man. His father was Capt. John O'Neill of the famous Irish Brigade of the Second Army Corps during the war of the rebellion. His brother, Eugene Brady O'Neill, is now on his way to w "BUCKET" O'NEILL. GERMANY'S REAL ATTITUDE.

"Buckey" O'Neill, the most picturesque man ot the west, was among the first to go down in that thrilling charge of the rough riders up the hillside at San Juan, in the cam paign before Santiago, says the New York Journal. A brave spirit and a unique char acter, "Buckey" O'Neill was known from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and his epitaph can not be better epitomized than in his own graphic phrase, written just before the de parture from Tampa, "Who would not gamble for a new star in the flag?" "Buckey" gambled and lost, and the rough riders are mourning a gallant fighter, a man who never knew fear, who had shot five men in his day, and who went to the front at the head of 300 intrepid Arizona citizens, all as anxious and as proud to die as Buckey died with his boots on and his face to the enemy.

He merely asked that political offenders might be saved wearing the badge of infamy and shame. He also proposed in his amendment that letters should be permissible to prisoners once a month, and he did not believe any member of the house would find fault with giving this discretion to governors He believed that if of the prisons. this course wrs adopted it would have a most beneficial effect on those prisoners when they came out of prison. He mentioned that he himself for seven years and seven months, while undergoing penal servitude and observing the prison rules, was not allowed a visit from a single friend. Such treatment under the prison rules could not have taken place in the case of burglars, murderers, thieves or or prisoners convicted of the vilest offenses. It was well known and had been frequently stated in the House that England stood alone among the other nations in the vindictive treatment of her political prisoners. In Russia, he asserted, the treatment of political prisoners was far more humane than in England. He concluded by expressing the hope that the Home Secretary would accept this very moderate amendment. Mr. Burns supported the amendment. Captain Norton said the Irish political prisoners were treated worse than political prisoners in any other He did not country in the world. think the amendment went far enough. Mr. Tully contended that these brutalizing provisions were meant solely for Irishmen. Mr. Dillon said he did not think he ever listened to a lamer excuse than that which the Home Secretary had given in reference to this amendment! Surely the Home Secretary must know when he asked for a definition of a political offender that any person convicted under the treason felony act was a political prisoner, and he (Mr. Dillon) would point out that the Crown by their action in deliberately selecting the Treason Felony Act as the act gar-roter- prison treatment of Jameson, and their friends with that dealt out to Irish prisoners, and he went on to say that for the last thirty years upward of five thousand Irishmen had passed through the jails of England and Ireland for political crimes often times less magnitude than those committed by Jameson, and others. A division was taken on the amendment, and the vote was as follows: For the amendment, 62; against, 128. y WILLIAM SULLIVAN, Louisville's Efficient Chief of Detectives, WILLIAM II. PRICE, The popular Secretary of the Chief of Police. There was some delay in making the teers. appointment, and O'Neill, chafing for action, went to Arizona, where at different periods he edited the Arizona Miner, the Phoenix Herald and the Hoof and Horn, a cattleman's organ. and somewhat prophetic, he decided that Arizona was the place to get a foothold. He got a half interest in several good mining properties, and his wonderful energy and leadership began to assert itself. The miners came to him to settle their brawls; the rangers accepted him as the court of final appeal, so equitable and just were his rulinge. Finally he was elected Judge of Yavapai county, and sat on the bench for some time. Subsequently he was elected Sheriff for three successive terms, and while in that office demonstrated his courage and fearlessness. None of the desperadoes of Arizona ran amuck more than once in Sheriff O'NeiU's biliwick. O'Neill was the best armed man in the territory, and also the best shot. Finally, after many ups and downs, with desperate chances and five fights in which he got the with drop on law breakers, he retired as Sheriff of Yavapai county and moved to Prescott, Ariz., where he ran three times for Congress, being defeated in each instance by a small majority. His next political venture was to run for Mayor of Prescott. He was elected unanimously, and the only vote against him was cast by himself. Every man, woman and child in Arizona knew and called him "Buckey," and every one loved him. When the war broke out Buckey had been living a somewhat quiet and uneventful life. When Roosevelt's regiment was being formed he quickly decided to raise a company, and he got a quota of troops together with such rapidity that President sent him a telegram of thanks. was not a man in Arizona who There would not have been glad to die by "Buckey" O'Neill's side.

A prosecution of a sensational character will take place at Westport, Mayo, soon. Three summonses have been served upon Sergt. James Sullivan of Royal Irish Constabulary, in charge of Mullranny police station, at the suit of Mr. John McHale, President of the United League, the charge being that the defendant forged the prosecutor's name to a letter inciting persons in the district The to "commit a serious crime. charges, technically subdivided by the three summonses, are: First That he maliciously published of and concerning the prosecutor a defamatory libel, knowing same to be false. Second That he willfully, knowingly and unlawfully solicited, asked and required of James Kelly and other persons unknown to join in the commission of an offense, by force, threats or menace, to attempt to compel one Martin Kelly to quit his service or lawful employment. Third That he unlawfully and falsely forged and counterfeited the name of John McHale to a certain writing purporting to have been written to one James The Kelly by the said McHale. MacDermott, Q. C, Attorney-Genera- l of the late Liberal administration, is going down to conduct the prosecution, which in its present form is at the suit of a private complaint, and it is understood that some of the most experienced experts in handwriting in the United Kingdom will be examined during the course of the proceedings. to-wi- s, t, Tom O'Rourke has practically de cided to match Tom Sharkey and Joe Goddard. The latter, notwithstand ing his defeat by Maher, made more friends during the contest than Peter did. He is anxious to fight, as there is bad feeling between Goddard and the sailor over the result of their last contest in San Francisco, which was won by Sharkey after a slam bang rough and tumble scramble. Jeffries is quite willing to fight, but being tied up .with one club there appears to be little chance of his be ing pitted against a man capable of bringing out all his resources. The double encounter with Steve O'Don- nell and Bob Armstrong will be little better than a farce, for if Jeffries has the caliber he is reported to possess he should dispose of those two opponents in short order. If Jeffries could get a $10,000 side stake his way to a match with Fitzsimmans would be clear, as Julian has announced that Fitz will meet Jeffries for the heavyweight championship provided the stake is forthcoming. It is quite like ly the astute Delaney will send his man after easier game than Champion " Bob. The Hibernan Knights will give one of their fine drills at the fete to be, given By No. 3.
