KENTUCKY SAMERICAN 1VOL lNO 4 LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY JULY SO 1898 FIVE CENTS I IRELAND Financial Grievances of the National Teachers to be Recognized The Earl ofHowth Originates the Irish Fisheries Discussion Governors ofthe Bank of Ire land Report Prosper ous Year An Important Meeting Held Relative to Railway Matters WHAT TilE INDEPENDENT SAYS On the consideration of the Irish estimates lately the attention of the House of Commons was directed to some of the financial grievances which affect the National Teachers On the vote of the 625734 to com plete the sum for National Education in Ireland including the grant in aid J Wt l P 1 pointed out the extraordinary positioni in which the arrears of the fee grant stand It appears that under this head the sum of 195000 is due to the teachers They have been agitating to have this amount paid but the Governmental s been exceedingly slow in recognizing the obligation that lies upon them for prompt settlement The debate however forced the ques tion on the Government in a manner which prevented it being evaded any longer and it will be observed with satisfaction that as a discussion ofthethe Chancellor Ex chequer promised that threefourths of the amount involved would be paid over to the teachers and the remain ing onefourth placed to the credit of the pension fund The Earl of Howth who is deeply interested in the question of Irish fisheries originated discussion in the House of Lords which it is to be hoped may be productive of some good He called attention to the present unsatisfactory condition of the Irish salmon fisheries and urged that as a Royal Commission was recently appointed to consider and report on the laws modes of fishing and conditions governing certain Scotch fish eries Ireland has now a paramount claim for a similar Royal Commission or commtttee to advise and report on the salmon fisheries of this country Speaking on behalf of the Govern ment the Earl of Denbigh admitted the justice of Lord Howths com plaint but went nb further than to undertake that the recommendations of the inspectors and the views of Lord Howth Lord Clifden and Lord Mayo who took part in the discus sion would receive the earnest atten tion of the Government Official promises of this kind are generally only a method for shelving a ques tion but it is to be hoped that Lord Denbighs announcement is for once an exception to the rule not a mere empty form of words and that it in dicates that the Government will really do something to place the salmon fisheries I of Ireland at least in the same posifinas regards encouragement and support as those of Scotland The Governors of the Bank of Ire land have issued their report and Matement of accounts to be submitted rJ fJ 41 Il 7 h at the general meeting of proprietors on the 19th inst The accounts which are made up to the the 3oth ofr June 1898 disclose a very prosper ous state of affairs After meeting allexpenditure providing for bad and doubtful debts for interest due on deposits rebate on bills not at matu rity and writing down bank premises by 13000 there remains a balance at credit of the profit and loss account amounting to 177836 odd The boardrecommend the payment of a dividend of 6 per cent on the half year being at the rate of 12 per cent per annum Two years ago the divi dend was at the annual rate of roj per cent so that substantial progress has been made since then notwith standing the widespread financial de pression These figures are evidence of healthy and progressive manage ment and the shareholders have every reason to be gratified An extraordinary meeting of the shareholders and stockholders of the Waterford Limerick and Western Railway was held at the Waterford terminus The meeting was held in compliance with a circular signed by shareholders and was for the purpose of considering the action of the die rectors of the company who dissent or have dissented from the proposed amalgamation with the Great Southern and Western Railway Company Besides the chairman Hon Percy Bernard D L there were eight directors present at the meeting Mr Synott one of the shareholders who signed the requisition calling the meeting made it pretty clear that any of the directors who persisted in their opposition to the scheme of amalga mation would be expected to resign and make room for others who would 1 z ibrVm r I the board Lord Castletown In a characteristic and able speech ex plained his reasons for having opposed the scheme He was convinced he said that a powerful railway system could have been formed by an amal gamation or tacit understanding be tween the Rosslare Railway the Dungarven Lismore and Cork Direct the Rosslare the Great Western and the Waterford and Limerick Com panies After referring to the pas sages in the report of the Hybrid Committee dealing with the objections to the amalgamation Lord Castletown said he was in agreement with that report He was not opposed to amalgamation on good terms for the share holders but was opposed to throwing away a property which as he thought had a growing prosperity before it The matter was adjourned till the or dinary meeting of shareholders on the 26th of August Beyond the able and lucid explanatory statement of Lord Castletown little was done at the meeting beyond revealing the de termined attitude of a large body of the shareholders in support of the majority of the directors After an nightssitting the Local Government Bill passed through the report stage says the Dublin Inde pendent It will be read the third time on Monday and then it will have to face the ordeal of the House of Lords That some attempt will be made to amend it there is pretty cer tain but it is stated that the Irish peers have not been able to make up their minds as to how far they will go in the effort to whittle it down It is re markable that Cot Sanderson the leader of the Ulster Tories moved after the bill was reported to the House that it should be read a third time there arid then and this would seem to indicate that having done their best to secure amendments in its passage through the Commons they are willing to take it as it is But Lord Londonderry and some others of the Irish Unionist peers who see in every extensional the popular rights an attack on their class will of course assail it but they can not hope to carry if they venture to propose any amendment which would strike at the principles of the bill for if such an amendment were carried it would U 10 r rr I I bring them in conflict with the Com mons who would not give way It iis to be regretted that more time was nott available for the discussion of many important amendments which had been moved during the committee stage and onreport but the House of Commons is not likely to waste much time over the further consideration of amendments by the Lords This iis the opinion we observe which is put forward in todays Express which deprecates at this late hour any seri ous attempt to alter the bill We may take it therefore that the bill will be come law almost in its present form and it is only fair to admit that the Government have fairly kept the pledges which they had made in respect of it It was a pleasant change j too to find the House of Commonss engaged in an allnight sitting passing a measure to enlarge the liberties of the Irish people instead of as so often in the old days forming measures of coercion But still the Coercion Act is on the Statute Book and so long as it is and so long as we are denied the right of sending our members to an Irish Parliament so long shall we regard even such a measure as the Local Government Bill as nothing more than an installment of justice and as an in centive to further efforts in the Na tional cause j

on Duty Here Is a Chance for Needed ReCormI A certain newspaper when short ofI localnews has repeatedly endeavored to supply the deficiency by making unjust and uncalledfor statements relative to the policemen and firemen of this city This week the paper referred to tried to create a sensation by stating that policemen and firemen were being forced off four days at a time in order that the Board of Safety might live within the appropriation for the fiscal year interviewGrwltha 4ep rtermadutliefol Owm statement The Board of Safety has no authority to lay off or dismiss any policemen or firemen except for charges preferred and sustained by the evidence in the trial of the case The board has not laid off a single man and does not propose to do so The statement is entirely untrue Some of the men are allowed a few days leave of absence according to custom in the midsummer months and those who have asked for their vacations have been given them as far as possible The appropriation made to the Board of Safety is run ning short This is because it was thought the board would have a bal ance left over from the old board of about 40000 But a failure to windup the franchise tax suits knocked us out of this money and we will run about 6000 short of the appropri ation When the usual yearly re vision of the appropriations is made at this season we will be allowed the amount needed to run our department That is all there is to it Policemen and firemen are always on duty firemen having only three hours out of the twentyfour which isI allowed them to go to their meals It would be only just that they be per mitted to have at least one day off each week and when the next salary ordinance is adopted provision ought to be made for carrying out this much needed reform Policemen who patrol i a beat all night and serve as witnesses in the courts during a great portion of the day and firemen on duty in the engine houses twentyone hours are entitled to more just considerationI Mr William P

The British Government Is Charged with Heartless Indifference A Strong Appeal for Aid fori the Destitute and Un fortunate ii- II PATRICK FORD DOING GOOD WORK 1 At the present time there exists a most deplorable famine in certain parts of Ireland and prominent Irish men and societies in the Eastern States have been making strenuous efforts to relieve the distress of their fellow countrymen The New York Irish World hase n wt 5 p i r Hi fP p wvrer IffiJlI IItime past and a circular lletter from its editor has been received in this city Contributions to the fund may be made to any of the divisions of the Ancient Order of Hibernians of Louis ville Jeffersonville or New Albany The cause is a worthy one that calls for prompt action and no doubt our IrishAmerican fellowcitizens and many others will respond as liberally as their means will permit The let ter is as follows Dear SirYou are ofcourse aware that there is a famine in Ireland This famine prevails in parts of Kerry parts of Donegal but chiefly in Mayo and Galway and along the western coast Their sole reliance the potato crop utterly failed yet they must pay the rent to the remorseless land lord all the same Many persons have already died of hunger in the dis tressed districts Many thank God have been saved through aidsent them by the charitable but many more will surely perish unless this aid is sustained and reinforced This terrible situation of affairs has been made known to the British Gov ernment by the Irish members in the English Parliament but that Government now as in times past has shown only heartless indifference What it has ventured to do in the way of relief is a grinning mockery The British Government does not wish to save the Irish people Nothing remains for us who are kith and kin to the unfortunate vic tims of Englands misrule but to stand by them as Christians and as men of the same blood we are under double obligation to come to their rescue Will you my dear sir be pleased to present this sad state of affairs to your society for its earnest considera tion and urge your kindly influence with a view to prompt and favorable actionThe Irish World will gladly receive and very thankfully acknowledge in its columns any contribution you or your society shall send to it for remittance to Ireland Very sincerely PATRICK FORD The Frankfort Hibernians hope to have State Secretary

the Insur gentsAntrim Is Captured The Tide of Victory Turned Through Overconfidence- of Insurgents 4 Capture and Execution of One of Irelands Brav est Sons GALLANT GEN HOPE AND HIS BAND r From the Irish World The seizure of Russell and Neilson was a cruel blow to the Ulster United Irishmen Neilson in particular had been the life and soul of the organ ization He better than anyother man knew its resources and capabil ities and during the events which preceded and followed the murder of Lord Edward Fitzgerald had given ample evidence of his courage and astuteness His unexpected arrest therefore threw his followers into dis order The rising in Ulster as in Leinster had been fixed to commence on May 23 but it was not until a fortnight afterward that the insurgents showed signs of activity A meeting afllhjurjeadejrs wasjield and itwas decided that the men of Antrim and Down should assemble simultaneously in their respective counties on June 5 Unfortunately the leader of the Down men the Rev Steele Dickson was seized while on his way to the place of meeting and this further mishap dampened to no small extent the hopes of his followers When the men of Antrim assembled there was found to be much difference of opin ion regarding their course of action Some declared for an instant march upon Antrim Others counseled delay and recommended that a few weeks should be spent in consolidating their forces providing ammunition and supplies and introducing initiatory dis cipline into their camp While debate was at its height news arrived that a bodyof soldiers was marching against them and was only a few miles off This was instantly decided then They had rio choice but to stand their ground or disperseto play the part of heroes or cowards Without a moments hesitation it was decided to advance against the enemy Having no recognized leader they held an election and the choice fell upon the heroic Henry Joy McCracken who at once issued a manifesto to this effect Army of Ulster Tomorrow we march on Antrim Drive the garri ron of Rondalstown before you arid haste to form a junction with Com manderinchief HENRY JOY MCCRACKEN First Year of Liberty June 61798 On the evening of June 6 men might be observed hurrying toward Cregarogan fort from all sides of the country Some had muskets others shotguns a few were without arms expecting to find a supply in camp but the majority carried their trusty pikes over their right shoulders In every eye shone the light of hopeof fierce desire to grapple with their ruth less foes and avenge the wrongs of centuriesThe dawn of Liberty too soon alas to suffer eclipse bathed them in radiance IOht then tell me Shawn OFerrall- Tell 1 me why you hurry 10 Hush ma houchal hush and listen And his cheeks were all aglow iI bear orders from the Captain Get you ready quick and soon For the pikes must be together o1te rUing of the moon Themorning of the jth witnessed u A a glorious sight Under the brilliant rays of the June sun three thousand men stood under arms Considering their want of training it was wonderful with what skill andcelerity they took their places The gunsmen were put in front next came the pikemen and a few insignificant pieces of artil lery all they possessed brought up the rear When the standard of Greer was unfurled at the head of the insur gent army a mighty cheer rose from the ranks Then the command was given Quick marchl and as they broke into a swinging stride the glorious strains of the Marseillaise made the mountain echoes ring The town of Antrim is situated on the banks of the Six Mile Water river on the great road from Belfast to Lon donderry At that time it consisted of two principal streets with others branching from them On the north ern side it was protected by a sharp rise of ground and Ion the southern by a strongly fortified castle Col Lumley who commanded the garri son made an able disposition of his forces The militia were placed in guard of the castle in front of which a regiment of regulars was drawn up At the other end of the town the hill adjoining the cathedral was occnpied by the yeomanry and the Twenty second Regiment of Light Dragoons while the artillery was stationed in the middle of the main street In this order they awaited the advance of the insurgents who were marching on Antrim in four columns by way of Belfast Ballymena Carrickfergus and Shones Castle roads McCracken having at last reached the gates of Antrim and reconnoitered the enemys position divided his men into two bodies who were to attack each end of the town simultaneosly A few well directed shots from one of their small field pieces forced the in fantry to abandon their position in front of the castle and to take refuge behind the gates Here being under cover they were enabled to keep up a heavy fire on the insurgents without sustaining any damage themselves Orders were therefore givento the Ivpikemen to dislodge them With a lusty cheer the pikemen dashed for ward in the face of grapeshot and though numbers were mowed down they were soon at close quarters with the regulars whose short bayonets proved of little service against the long pikes of their enemies British skill and British pluck gave way be fore the resistless onslaught of the despised Croppies A few minutes more and ths soldiers were flying up the main street and scattering in all directionsMeanwhile the northern division of the insurgents had attacked the cav aIry and ater a series of desperate charges had driven them from their position The dragoons and the yeo men dismounting from their horses retreated to graveyard in the vicinity of the cathedral and took refuge be hind the tombstones But the insur gents were not to be balked Despite the musketry fire they clambered over the cemetery walls and piked half the royalist troops The remainder took to their horses and made a wild stam pede down the street toward where their artillery wis stationed Here they were met by the infantry who were fleeing in the opposite direction and in a few moments the royalist troops became an indiscriminate mob inclosed between two lines of victori ous rebels Colonel Lumley their brave commander endeavored to rally them but it was of no avail The rout be came a suave qui peat and cavalry and infantry dashed helterskelter out of the western streets of the town the fleet pikemen hanging on their flanks and bringing them down in scores To all appearances the battle was now won In face of desperate odds the insurgents had attacked the town completely routed its garrison and now remained in undisturbed possession With exciting cheers they gathered about the abandoned cannons and fired off a salute to their departing foes But here occured one of those totally unexpected and trivial incidents which often turn the tide of victoryAs Twentysecond Light Dra goons and the yeomanry galloped alongb1 the wildest terror they were confronted by another body of insurgents These were men from f 1c x I the Rondalstown district who hadnot been able to reach the camp at Cre garogan in time and who were now hurrying up to the relief of their com rades in Antrim Knowing nothing of what had taken place they natur ally mistook the flight of the redcoats for a charge They did not stop to reflect that fear lends fleeter and more powerful wings than courage That troop ot desperate looking men and maddened horses plunging forward with reckless speed must surely be bent on a hostile mission They paused a moment a panic seized them as might have happened in the case of seasoned troops and the next moment they were dispersing in every directionThe which had seized the Rondalstown men aroused the military from theirs They suddenly came to a halt and to their great astonishment perceived that they were not pursued a fact which need not have aroused any surprise seeing that the insur I Jennings Bryan as Colonel Volunteers gents possessed no cavalry The sight of a fleeing enemy renewed their courage and their commander passed along their ranks assuring them that reinforcements were on the way In confirmation of his words alarge body redcoats from the garrisons of Belfast and Blanis Moore were observed hurrying up A junction was soorj effectedand after a brief breathing spell it was determined that they shouldretrace their steps and endeavor to recover their lost position- It is often easier to enforce discip line in moments of danger than iin those offancied security So it proves with the Ulster insurgents While engaged in attacking Antrim they had obeyed their leaders instantaneously and with an utter disregard of peril but now that the was appa rently won McCracken found it be yond his power to keep them under control They had gained the town after a long and weary march and after desperate fighting in which many a gallant comrade was laid low The ehemy was flying like redshartks toward the north and by this time were not less than a score of miles away Surely it was time to wipe off the blood and dust of battle refresh themselves arid rest their weary limbs Accordingly they put aside their arms and gave themselves up to rest and enjoyment Glasses were clinked The Rapparees The Wild Geese and Sarsfields Rovers were enthusiastically toasted and songs liberty rang in the startled ears of ter ror stricken Antrim loyalists Precisely the moment when the fr T e f r insurgents thought all danger had passed the military entered the southern gate Cries of alarm were raised but it it was too late Instead of find ing a serried body of insurgents con fronting them the military found only a disorganized mob McCracken endeavored to rally his men but they had dispersed in every conceivable direction and the majority knew not where they had left their weapons The dragoons with their long sabres apd the yeoman with their heavy cavalry pistols had but to deal with a mass of unarmed men To this organization there was one noble ex ception Gen Hope who commanded one of the divisions of the insur gent army gathered around him a gallant little band McCracken afterwards designated it the Spartan Bandwhich for a long time kept the whole force of British at bay Attacked on every side by yeomanry militia cavalry and infantry they held their ground in the face of over William of of victory of pt I whelming odds and repeatedly re pulsed their assailants As evidence of the gallantry and chivalry which animated these men one incident deserves to be recorded in letters of gold On one occasion a company of regular troops mistak ing their direction amidst the smoke of battle got mixed up with Hopes division and suddenly found them selves surrounded It was the easiest matter in the world to cut them off to a man but Hope scorned to take ad vantage of their mistake Advancing to the officer who had led the red coats he told him to go back as he had comethat the United Irishmen felt no pride in destroying the weak and defenseless So without a hair of their heads being touched the little troop of military retreated to their own lines If Hopes oppo nents had fought in the same spirit of chivalry what a different tale might have been told But the insurgents received no quarter Unarmed as theywere they were cut down mercilessly as they fled towards Ron dalstownand Shones Castle Hopes little band after sustaining many des perate cavalry charges at last fell back upon Donegore Hill where Mc Cracken had taken up his position accompanied by a few faithful adher entsHere out of all the thousands who had advanced upon Antrim only about a hundred were now mustered The battle of Antrim had been won arid lostwon by means of pure valor in the teeth of military prowess arid discipline lost l1roUJhfat1self J o 1 i 1 I confidence and carelessness Upward of eight hundred insurgents had fallen but they did not die unavenged At least onethird of their opponents had reddened the streets of Antrim with their blood and above all Lord ONeillthe recreant heir to a noble name who had led the cowardly yeoman on many a bloodyraidnow lay with a pike driven right through hi body McCracken or Hope did no yet despair Though a British force under Col Clavering four hundred strong lay a short distance from Dune gore Hill the insurgent leaders deter mined to keep their little band to gether as the nucleus of the insur gent army in hopes that an opportunity for striking another blow woul quicky come Col Clavering being afraid to at tack the gallant little band endeav ored to effect their dispersal by subter fuge He tendered complete amnesty to all of them except four of their leaders including Hope and Mc Cracken for whose capture he offered a reward of 2000 a head The in surgents who would rather die than betray their leaders indignantly re torted by offering a similar reward for his own head Thereupon the noble Britisher threatened that if they did not disperse he would burn and raze to the ground every cottage in the surrounding country Fear for his personalsafety did not weigh with the intrepid McCracken but pity for his helpless and inoffensive friends shoo his resolution With tears in his eye he bade his followers disperse an then accompanied by seven faithful1 friends he took refuge in a cave iinI the neighboring mountains For a long time he eluded the bloodhounds who were day and night upon his track Nothing but his own skill and courage and the abso lute incorruptibility of the peasantry saved him from capture At last he assumed the disguise of a carpenter and made his way toward the seacoast with the intention of sailing to France After many adventures he reached a little village in the neighbor hood of Carrickfergus He was iinI liropes that vat yrnte hi troubles were over and that he woul soon tread the free soil of La Belle France But it was not to be One day while passing through the village he was recognized by one of a squad of yeomen and after a desperat- resistance was captured and lodge- in Carrickfergus jail Thence he was sent in chains to Belfast where the usual mockery of a trial took placeMcCracken was offered his life on condition that he would divulge the secrets of the organization and in par ticular declare who the leader of the Ulster insurgents was originally to have been His indignant reply was How can you expect me to be such a villainHis father was asked to use his influence with him in this regard but he proved incorruptible for he said I would rather my son shouldI i die than act dishonorably- The end of the tragic drama came soon On July 17 1798 Henry Joy McCracken emerged from Belfast jail His sister was in waiting and after embracing the two walked to the scaf fold lovingly hand in hand Indeed it was only by the imperative ordersi of Gen Nugent that she was pre vented from mounting the scaffold with him The ghastly procession stoppedopposite the market place which is situated in High street Bel fast With cruel irony the gallowsi had been erected on a site whichwasi a free gift of his grandfathers to the inhabitants of Belfast He was not suffered to address the weeping multi tude who surrounded him He had scarcely given a farewell wave of his hand when the executioner seized him and in the course of a quarter of an hour after barbarously hacking and mutilating his helpless remains Englands minions had taken their finalvengeance upon him He died in the prime of life a gallant clever and accomplished gentle mana dutiful son a loving brother an unswerving friend and above all an incorruptible and dauntless patriot In the scrolls of history no nobler name appears than that of Henry Joy McCracken the leader of the Antrim United Irishmen CONTINUED ON SEVENTH PAGE J r l I 0 TRIBUTE TO AN IRISH SOLDIER Speech of George Washingtons Stepson Dellrered In Washington City In the Year 1882 John Byrne the Irish soldier of Washings LadytWashington and the adopted son of aI t speech delivered at Washington on the 6th of August 1832 when speak ing of the Irish soldiers in the Revo lution told the following anecdote p IThe recollections of Americas days end dear to her the memory of the Irish mens services in the times that tried mens souls Perhaps I may tire you j withla thricetold tale yet if the Americans were as much instructed in the history of their own times as they are in the records of antiquity they would find as brilliant instances of courage and patriotism to admire in the lives and actions of the heroes of the Revolution as those who flour ished in the days of Rome and Greece Do the mellowed recollections of antiquity contain a finer in stance of courage and fidelity under the severest pressure of misfortune than is found in the story of poor John Byrne the Irish soldier of the Revolution Years have passedaway camekto my and saluted me with God Washingtonsdold come to see 1you I am proud to tell you that I often received a call from the honored remnants of the Revolution They say that they can not pass my domicile without calling upon one they are pleased to term a member of the old family And so hear me GodlI more welcome to my house and my heart are these gray and withered relics of the heroic time than would be the presence of an emperor Byrne was one of the finest types of that order of beings now almost extinct that ever met my notice Never can I for et the touching scene that ensue cheerdex- pression of his features when having drunk to my health he reverently turned his eyes toward higher and better worlds and exclaimed Heres Washingd a such as Guido might have painted over which seventy winters had shed their snows while tears ofveneration at the remembrance of a loved commander coursed each other down the channels which time and hard service had worn full many and deep The sufferings which Byrne endured were even a refinement upon the hellish usages of the prison ship For this preference he was entirely indebted to his brogue which betrayed his be ing a native of the Emerald Isle and then as he emphatically observed they added their tortures as a civility due to my native country Ohl1 ye who jest at scars that never felt a wound picture to youself a being captive and desolate knawed by famine breathing the air of pestilence associated only with the dying and the dead But see there appears the commander like an angel of mercy having healing under his wings hav ing pardon protection food raiment gold But mark ye the price of all these benefits Twas like the devil tempting the Son of Man of old IAll these will I give you but you must abandon the cause of American liberty said the English Admiral Byrne when the latter had crawled upon the deck and confronted the arbiter of his fate And what was the suffering heros reply Hear it Americans treasure it in your hearts aye and write in your books that future ages may read it and admire the cry of brave Byrne in the prison ship at Charleston and amid the ranks of death at Eutau Hurrah for America Turn over the pages of the past dive into the depths of centuries and you can find no more brilliant example of courage 11the midst of despair of zeal and fidelity to the cause of human liberty than is shown in the story of John Byrne the Irish soldier of the Revolution Fever closely resembling the famine fever of 48 is scourging the starved peasantry of Kerry C 0- n roI 0 IKENTUCKY IIRISH AMERICAN I 31JOHN SULLIVANS ANCESTOR Was Born in Limerick In 16901Ie First Came to This Coantrj at the Age of ThirtyThree At the first annual field day of the American Irish Historical Society held recently at New Castle N H Mr Bernard Corr of Boston read An interesting paper giving the fol lowing account of the first Sullivan Two or three years ago a gentleman of my acquaintance while con versing about the Irish settlers in New Hampshire and Maine made the remark that most of those who bear Irish names were ScotchIrish at least that all the most prominent I families were of that mythical race j I undertook to dispute his statement i and instanced General John Sullivan of Revolutionary fame who I told I him sprang from the genuine Kerry 1 and Cork stock and was related to the oldest Irish families in Munster This he stoutly denied so I hunted 1 the matter up and soon presented 1 facts which convinced him there was a nothing Scotch about the Sullivans of New Hampshire and too without reflecting on the character of the brave Scottish Gael 1 In this way I became particularly interested in the family history of Gen 1 Sullivans father and mother and t when I told my neighbor and friend Dr John Sullivan the great grandson of the General that I would like to get all the facts about the old folks I he cheerfully gave me permission to read all the books and papers in his possession bearing on the genealogy of the family From these I took f copious notes and extracts and will s present a few of them here this even ingJohn Sullivan the old Berwick schoolmaster or more properly Owen OSullivan for that was his name before he came to America was accord ing to most reliable accounts born in Limerick Ireland June 17 1690 But in Ardea in the County of Derry was the family estate and as Major Philip OSullivan his father was an officer in the Irish army fighting Against the Prince of Orange and was serving under Sarsfield when the garrison surrendered in 1691 his another may have been with her husband in Limerick for the time being At any rate it was about this time and amid these stirring scenes that the founder of the noted New Hamp shire family was born- I need nut go into any particulars here about the seige of Limerick or- t the surrender of the gallant patriotic army or basely the terms of the treatyII were observed the treaty broken ere the ink wherewith twas writ could dry Such Catholics as were unwilling 1 I to abandon their religion andI swear allegiance to the government of William of Orange were allowed to depart for France or any place out side of Great Britain Major OSul Jivan was one of the noble band that preferred poverty and exile toI living in their native land under such conditions aud with the brave Sars field and his army of about 1300 men he crossed over to France where the Irish exiles in other wars made England bitterly repent the lost serv ices of the noble patriots- It was George II I believe who said after hearing of the defeat of the English at Fontenoy Cursed be the laws that deprive me of such sub r jeers With the large number of exiles who left Ireland at about this time went the wife of Major OSullivan and her baby boy it is supposed but nothing definite is given of her inI history after that time The Major died in France some years afterward frm a wound received in a duel with enchofficer I he future American schoolmaster Jtas carefully educated in the schools r of the Continent and it is said Wai in tended for the church But for ome reason that idea was given up and we find him in 1716 when he was about twentysiz years of age engaged in an effort to restore the Stuarts to the throne of England He was next heard from in Ireland where itappears he was mixed up in another patriotic intrigue in 1721 Having become disgusted with the condition of affairs in his native iouhtrjr like 1lUlyothers of his kind f he decided to emigrate to America He must have been without money for the records state that he pledgee t his services to one Mr Nowell of Newburyport for the payment of his passage and he landed at York Maine in 1723 when he was about the age of thirtythree One of his fellow passengers was a poor friendless little girl from Cork about nine years af age whose serv ices were also pledged for the pay ment of her passage money She like OSullivan was a redemption a term applied to those who had not the ready cash but were willing to pledge their services for a time in America until the debt was paid It seems that in this manner a great many of the early Irish emigrants found their way to this land of prom iseOSullivan and this little girlwere hired by the person inYorkand from this time he never lost his interest in Margery Brown as she was called and when she grew into womanhood he sought her for wife Here are ma terials for an interesting novel but as plain reciter of facts I will leave the story for some imaginative writer Sullivan who dropped the 0 and called himself John soon found that hard labor was not to his liking and he wrote a letter it is said in six languages to the minister of the town the Rev Samuel Moody who no doubt was impressed with the scholarship ofthe redemptioner for he loaned Sullivan money enough to pay his passage debt and become a free man The good minister also obtained for Sullivan the post of schoolmaster at Berwick and here he settled I believe For the remainder of his life His salary as schoolmaster was small but Tho DealingI he wrote deeds at a shilling apiece and f did other clerical work at times it is I said acting as religious instructor in the little meeting house although he had been brought up a strict Catholic 1 Soon he earned enough to liquidate his debt to the Rev Mr Moody and I also to redeem his little Mar gery Brown who was toiling in aii farmhouse and who became his special Although he had never seen her until he met her on board of the vessel on his way to America and had no knowledge pf her family he at tended to her instruction and when she bloomed into maidenhood and handsome and consulted him about an offer of marriage she had re ceived from a youth of the town he told her that he wanted her for him self She consented to become his wife Of their progress in Berwick as man and wife and of their six chil dren I need not say much here The histories of New Hampshire and the nation tell much of them Mrs Margaret Brown Sdllivan wasI a woman of great strength of charac ter il quick generous and impulsive like all real Irishwomen and of sturdy build She performed most of he outdoor labor for her family in order that her husband might devote his time to his teaching and studies It was no uncommon thing to see her working in the field with one or two of her children by her side In this way the two future Governors John and James were initiated into the af fairs of life John Sullivan school for over fifty years in Berwick and died in 1796 at age of 1 06 years Mar garet his wife 4in her eighty year in 1801 five years after her husband Both lived through the exciting times of the Revolution and U 1 rr jll I rIJIi I- j i had the distinguised

eloquent sermon in St Patricks Church Washington D C on Sunday July 10 taking for his subject President McKinleys proclamation recommending the peo ple to offer thanks for our victories in the war Dr Stafford said These words of the Chief Magistrate of the nation scarcely need comment they are as beautiful as they are patriotic and as patriotic as they are i religious At a time of strife when the worst passions of the human heart are called into action the head of a great people does not forget that God holds the nation in the hollow of his hand and asks us to pray that peace may return to our dear land and that the domain now ravaged by the i cruelty of war may speedily be blessed with the priceless boon of security and tranquility It is a great example Most I for which every Christian man be gratefulYesterday the country was divid ed There were many opinions as to war in general and this war in particular in the breast of every loyal man there is room only for one Whatever may be our opinion of war j in general or this war in particular when once the supreme authority ofI the nation has declared that it ii necessary to begin the dreadful as it is then no loyal man can hesitate It is the plain duty of every citizen to aid by all and moral means in his power to give his treasure his substance and if need be his life to carry the flag to vic tory When action begins discussion ceasesThe country has not failed in its duty From the North and the South from the East and the West from every race condition class creed and party of men the country has answered with a magnificent which will make us the stronger at home and the more respected abroad Never in the history of our country has the guidance of heaven been so much needed as at the pres ent time and the President does wellI to point us to higher considerations The atmosphere is surchargedI with change There are rumorsI afloat and indications of radical de partures new and untried measures policies which in a very great sense would bea repudiation of the past anentrereversalof all our history of which there is no precedent or warrant in bur national life I will not discuss these here as they maybe called party questions But if change must come God be withus and God direct us God grant that we may be right and always justt 411 III 5 nI jo f lf- q a s here are greater than terri tory greater than multitudiuoi population greater things than armies and navies glorious as these are Greater than all these is justice greate than all these is the right Now it is this idea of natura justice and right with which we began that made us a great and were we bounded by one State or did our national limits extend no further than the District of Columbia we would still be the greatest nation in the world provided we guaranteed to everyone his right and protected him in the pursuit of life and happiness Right not territory makes a great people So there is a logical growth and evolution of nations which if the nation is to be great you must not interrupt You can not force it you can not change it though direct it you may and when that law of growth is interrupted then you must sustain the nation by forcerepression with in resistance without But no nation sustained by force is a strong The history of empires proves this Alexander conquered half the world but his empire did not outlive himself The Romans conquered all the world btu when they arrived at universal cinquest the were knock ing at their gates Napoleon con quered all Europe and kings knelt at his feet to receive their crowns but empires away like the baseless fabric of a dream And even now nations that seem strong are really weak and look about for some acci dental means to add to their life and increase their power Now the greatness of America Mid we should remember it now above ill timesdoes not consist of territory p Kathadin the Powerful Death Vessel Afloat charge charge strong taught the seventh should Today combat physical unanimity always things things people inalienable liberty nation barbarians passed population exhaustless resources the braveryof her children though we are blessed with all these But the beginning and the end and the cen ter and circumference the alpha and omega of all things American is in that principle of natural right and justice with which we began and which we have proudly asserted in every phase and contingency of our history It made us a great nation from the beginning and when we were but a handful of people scatter ed over a great continent and battling with the elements for life we were already a great people for we had natural rights and justice for a foundation and the surpassing greatness of an universal idea to ennoble and to elevateOh let us not forget it Where that principle may go let us go where it goes not let us not enter for if we should forget it and if we should forsake it then America has ceased to be and God save the people and God pity the world This is our principle To wrong one man is to violate it unjustly to acquire one foot of territory is to de stroy it Europe may call it vision ary but it is ours We are committed to it we began by it and have grown strong with it On the field of battle and amid the dash of fleets we have maintained it In the hourof disaster we have still appealed to it and still found strength in it It is our glory and our greatness God protect it Whatever change come then may we be right and wh ie we render thanks to God for the victory vouchsafed our trmslet us beseech Him U be with us still Oh

wearing heel shoes with no of enjoying even a slight restili the afternoon Add to this dis comfort small wages and the likelihood of rude or vulgar treatment and we can not but wonder that there are not universal uprisings among working girls and demand for better treatment That they are patient too patient is the reason The instant that any unduly familiar remark or even look given a young woman

speech published in last weeks edition created such favorable comment Mr Lawler was born in 1860 at Hunting ton Ind and pursued his earlier studies in the Catholic and public schools of that city Later he entered St Josephs College Bardstown where he spent three years Leaving there he went back to his native city teaching in both the public and Catholic schools But Mr Lawler being ambitious wished for a wider field and came to Louisville where he might have better chances for achieving success His first business experience was with the then popular Musselman Tobacco Company with whom he remained for six years be ing their city salesman and collector and having in charge the cities of Louisville New Albany and Jefier sonville His term of employment and the very complimentary recom mendations from the firm when they dissolved partnership are the best evidences in what esteem he was held by that firm The idea of opening a tobacco business for himself was sug gested which he did in the beginning of 1887 Later on he added the manufacture of cigars and the popu larity of his wellknown brand Law lers Monarch is sufficient proof that he is possessed of that energy and pluck which eventually wins success Mr Lawler also takes a great interest in fraternal socities being we un derstand a member of the Knights and Ladies of Honor HepUsophs Young Mems Institute and Ancient Otdrof

eighteenth century The order as the name implies was in Ireland and is the outcome of the religious and political strife so common in the history of the Emerald Isle As the time went on the popu larity of the organization increased and the membership also increasedso rapidly that soon the narrow confines the mother country were too limited to longer restrain tho society As a result the O A H was transplanted in other lands and today wherever the Irish emigrant or his son raised his banner there also is a division of the A O H The order both beneficial and social the intent and purpose of which is to pro mote friendship unity and Christian among its members by raising and supporting a fund of money among members for maintaining the aged blind and infim and for the legitimate expenses of the organization The motto of the order is Friendship Unity and Christian Charity Friendship in helping and assisting one another in every possible way unity in combining together for mutual

cruel fate which had overtaken McCracken and his followers the men of Down re solved to strike a blow for freedom They assembled in the little town of Saintfield to the number of5000 men and chose as their commander a trusty patriot named Henry Munro Munro was a man of provedcourage and as we shall see presently of exceptional military skill but he labored under one great disadvantage His instincts were so chivalrous that theycompelled him to treat the rede vals as honorable foes and not as aslravenouswould be a national service to kill on sightIThis is a fault that can be found with the general body of the United Irishmen and their leaders Their methods were often better suited to the days of knight errantry than to modern warfare When we recollect that Ireland was overrun at this epoch by a horde of brutal soldiers in whose vicinity no mans life and no womans honor was safethat murder lust and incendiarism stalked through the land we marvel at the patience of the peasantry Perhaps it is his lively sense of things spiritual his firm belief that his enemy is in the hands of God which make the Celt often resigned to sufferings that would crush others to earth or drive them to madness After a few preliminary skirmishes at PortaferryandNewtownards Munro captured Ballinahinch which he occu pied with his men On hearing the news the authorities took steps to crush this formidable enemy Two large forces conspicuous among which were the Argytshire Highlanders were dispatched simultaneously from Belfast and Downpatrick with orders to effect a junction and move upon 6aninahtnch This mancuvcrMunra endeavored to prevent He sent a body of guardsmen to intercept the redcoats as they advanced from Down patrick but unfortunately it was too late Before the rebels were well on their way the enemy had already reached headquarters Munro now divided his men into three bodies The first was stationed on Windmill Hill which is a sharp eminence on the northern line of Bal linahinch The second occupied the town itself while the third which he commanded in person took a position on the hill of Ednevady in the rear of the town Having come within artillery range of Windmill Hill Gens Nugent and Barber opened fire whereupon Capt McConce who with a small body of rebels lay in ambush a short distance off poured a deadly fusillade upon the gunners This unexpected volley compelled the red coats to retreat for a time but fresh troops were hurried up and they attacked McConce in overwhelming numbers They then turned attention to Bal linahinch itself training all their can non upon the town and shelling it to such effect that Munro determined to abandon it for the moment and concentrate all his forces upon Edne vady Hill A messenger was straight way dispatched to McConce bidding him to retreat but McConce who possessed more of the intrepidity than the discipline of a soldier refused evacuate his position and sent he messenger back for reinforcements bidding him tell Gen Munro that he would die rather than give way an inch to the bloody redcoats Indeed so bravely obstinate was he that it was only under imperative orders and after many fruitless messages that he reluctantly gave the signal to retire The royalists now occupied Windmill Hill and Ballinahinch while the United Irishmen were drawn up in battle array in the slopes of Ed- neIVady For some time the former remained inactive but at last they summoned up courage enough to charge the rebels So warm how ever was the reception they received that they quickly fell back upon Hal linahinch considering that they had had quite enough fighting for one day Soon the darkness came and immedi O 1 V c 9 ately the soldiers gave themselves up to drunkenness violence and rapine of every description For a longtime the streets of Ballinahinch rang with the groans of men and the agonized screams of women Then silence fell The brutal redcoats were at last over come by their potations and excesses and the majority of them lay dead drunk in the gutter This news having been brought to the insurgent camp a council ofwar was held It was the general opinion that a midnight descent upon Ballina hinch would be irresistible and that the enemy was absolutely at their mercy Unfortunately Munros deli cate sense of honor would not permit him to take advantage of the royalists helpless condition No plea or argu ment could induce him to give orders to advance His officers sullenly left his tent inwardly cursing his chivalry and one division of his army amount ing to close on 1000 men were so disgusted that they quitted the camp and dispersed Munros foolish mag nanimity seems all the more remark able when contrasted with the conduct of the royalists under similar circum stances Not only did the latter never hesitate to attack the insurgents whenI Major General R Brooke United unarmed and carousing but it was a favorite device of theirs to send bar rels of whisky into the insurgents camp so that the resultant drunken ness might render them an easy prey At sunrise on June 13 the insurgents fell into ranks and Gen Munro passed along the line urging them to strenuous action As the flag of green was proudly unfurled a deafening cheer arose which reverberated along the hillsides and startled the royalists in Ballinahinch Munro divided his men into two bodies one of which he led in person against the eastern side of Ballinahinch while the other under Capts McConce and Townsend assaulted it upon the opposite side Munro was astute enough to place very little reliance on the few anti quated pieces ofartillery he possessed or indeed upon the musket which about fourth of his men carried He saw that the pike would win or lose the day Accordingly he drew up his pikemen and ordered them to charge the guns behind which the royalists were drawn up in a solid square According to the usages of such exploits as the capture of artil lery are generally reserved for cavalry There is no feat that requires such dashing courage and resolution as for infantry to take possession of the enemys guns at the bayonets point With a thundering + FaughaBal laghl they

opposite side with equal success driving the royalists before them like a flock of sheep The result was a complete rout The redcoats flung down their arms and fled helterskelter out of the town in the Belfast direction leaving the in surgents in complete possession of BallinahinchHere occurred one of those trivial mischances which followed the fortunes of the 98 men with strange persistence and helped in no small measure to win the cause When the British commander Gen Nugent lost all hope of rallying his men he gave his trumpeters orders to sound a retreat whereupon the shrill blast of bugles rang over the bloody battle field Halfblinded by the smoke that filled the narrow streets the in surgents who were mostly simple peasants thought the enemy had just receivedstrong reinforcements and that the bugle blasts they heard were the signal for a charge A panic seized them suddenly and they turned about and fled While therefore the military were running north as fast I John States Army I a warfare 1 I as their legs and horses could carry them the rebels were running south in the direction of Downpatrick The former were the first to recover from their panic and were astonished on halting to perceive their dreaded enemies hurrying away from Ballina hinch This unexpected spectacle renewed their courage The Twenty second Light Dragoons and the yeomen received orders to pursue the fleeing foe and instantly put spurs to their steeds Soon they were riding among the unfortunate insurgents whom they cut down mercilessly with their long sabers No quarter was given and

Patriots Grave at Sydney Australia A cablegram from Sydney says The celebration today of the cen tenary of the Irish rising of 1798 was very largely attended The remains of the wellknown insurgent chief Michael Dwyer and his wife were exhumed at the old Devonshirestreet cemetery and reinterred at the Waver ley cemetery where the foundation stone of a national monument was laid The body of the wife was in a remarkable state of preservation due largely to her great age 95 when she died The features and hair were perfectlyrecognizable Mr Dwyer was buried 73 years and his wife 38 ago Speeches were delivered in eulogy of the heroism and patriotism of the leaders of the rising Over the vault containing the remains of Michael Dwyer and his wife an imposing monument will be raised We learn from the Sydney Freeman that a fine site has been secured in the new Catholic portion of the Waverley cemetery Standing as it will over 30 feet high the monument should be a conspicuous and com manding object in the cemetery Roughly estimated the monument will costloooo The tall Celtic cross and the principal inscription panel are to be pure Carrara marble The rest is to be of polished trachyte The monument is to cover 30 feet by 24 feet The flat portion immediately over the vault is to be in mosaic and will serve as a place for those to kneel who visit the tomb in a spirit of patri otism and reverence It is estimated that the monument will take twelve months to complete The potato crop around Banagher is seriously injured by blight The effects of the disease are not apparent- in

inscribed with one line His fame his best epitaph The estate lies on Staunton river 38 miles from the town of Lynchburg near the border line whichseparates Charlotte and Campbell counties It derived its name of Red Hill from the peculiar color of the soil in that vicinity When Patrick Henry bought the place it comprised about 3500 acres The land is richthere was a saying in the neighborhood that poor land and Henry could never be mentioned together corn grows there as high as a man on horseback j there is a general air of smiling fields and abundant prosperity Its situation in early times was
