Kentucky teiSH American. VOL. 1 NO. 4. LOUISVILLE, at the general meeting of proprietors on the 19th inst. The accounts, which are made up to the the 30th of June, 1898, disclose a very prosperous state of affairs. After meeting all expenditure, providing for bad and doubtful debts, for interest due on deposits, rebate on bills not at maturity, and writing down bank premises by 3,000, there remains a balance at credit of the profit and loss account amounting to .177,836 odd. The board recommend 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 dividend was at the annual rate of ioj per cent., so that substantial progress has been made since then, notwithstanding the widespread financial depression. These figures are evidence of healthy and progressive management, 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 directors 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 amalgamation would be expected to resign and make room for others who would in a the Doara. L.ora and able speech, excharacteristic plained his reasons for having opposed the scheme. He was convinced, he said, that a powerful railway system could have been formed by an amalgamation or tacit understanding between the Rosslare Railway, the Dungarven, Lismore, and Cork Direct, the Rosslare, the Great Western, and the Waterford and Limerick Companies. After referring to the passages 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 shareholders, but was opposed to throwing away a property which, as he thought, had a growing prosperity before it. The matter was adjourned till the ordinary 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. sitting, the Local After an Bill passed through the Government report stage, says the Dublin Independent. 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 certain; 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 remarkable that Col. 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 and 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 extension of 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 KYm SATURDAY, JULY 30, 1898 k FIVE CENTS IRELAND.

For- 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 ,625,734 to complete the sum for National Education in Ireland, including the grant in aid pointed out the extraordinary position in which the arrears of the fee grant stand. It appears that under this head the sum of ,95,000 is due to the teachers. They have been agitating to have this amount paid, but the Government, .has been exceedingly slow in recognizing the obligation that lies upon them for prompt settlement. The debate, however, forced the question on the Government in a manner which prevented it being evaded any longer; and it will be observed with satisfaction that, as a result of the discussion, the Chancellor of the Ex s of chequer promised that would be paid the amount involved over to the teachers, and the remainplaced to the credit of ing the pension fund. The Earl of Howth, who is deeply 'interested in the question of Irish fisheries, originated a 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 fisheries, 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 Government, the Earl of Denbigh admitted the justice of Lord Howth's complaint, but went no 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 discussion, would receive the earnest attenOfficial tion of the Government. promises of this kind are generally only a method for shelving a question, but it is to be hoped that Lord Denbigh's announcement is for once an exception to the rule, not a mere empty form of words, and that it indicates that the Government will really do something to place the salmon fisheries of Ireland at least in the same position as regards encouragement and support as those of Scotland.

An event that is now being looked forward to with much pleasure in Frankfort and surrounding towns is the picnic to be given by Division No 1, A. O. H., of Frankfort, at Cove Spring Park, Tuesday, August 1 6. The Committee on Arrangements are sparing neither time nor money to make the affair a grand success, and announce several attractions, prominent among which is a game of base ball between a team composed of members of the Frankfort Division and a team composed of members of a Louisville Division. Excursion rates have been secured from Kentucky towns, and an effort will be made to either run an excursion from Louisville or get up a crowd and come up on the morning C. & O. return at 6:15 in the evening.

It revealed that the Hampshire County National Bank and the Hampshire County Savings Bank were broke. The banks were $640,000 short. Warner had disappeared as completely as if the earth had opened and swallowed him up. Instead of crossing the border into Canada, Warner came West. He reached Louisville on Derby Day. Between the races and the appearance ot the city, Warner became so fascinated that he could not leave. For several weeks he boarded at the hotels, and then chose a nice, quiet boarding house on East Broadway. While in Louisville he sailed under the name of L. D. Williams. He churches, visited the bucket-shops- , dectectives' offices and newspaper offices. He learned that no description of him had been sent to Louisville. He even had one of the detectives show him the rogues' gallery. Finding that his picture was not there, he felt secure. One day he met a man on the street named Porter. Porter was a neighbor of Warner's "in Northampton. Porter recognized Warner, and reported to the detectives. Chief Sullivan at once detailed Detectives Donahue and Hickey on the case. Meanwhile the Northampton officers were communicated with, and a description of Warner was sent to Louisville. Detectives Donahue and Hickey went to work with a will. They found traces of Warner every day, but failed to locate the man. On Saturday.Chief Sullivan was walking up Market street, between Third and Fourth, when he saw an elderly man who answered the descriptions given of Warner. Chief Sullivan accosted him, and tqld him he was under arrest. Warner said his ntme was Williams. He claimed to be a New York business man, and pretended to be indignant about his arrest. Chief Sullivan brought him tq the detectives' office. While there a card dropped out bearing the name of Miss Warner, a sister of the man under arrest. Chief Sullivan was then doubly sure he had the man. Warner finally admitted that he was the man wanted, and offered to go back without requisition papers. of Chief of Police Maynard, unjust and uncalled-fo- r 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. Mr. Ed T. Tierneym an interview with a reporter made ' the followingstatement: "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 running short. This is because it was thought the board would have a balance left over from the old board of about $40,000. But a failure to wind up the franchise tax suits knocked us out of this money, and we will run about $6,000 short of the appropriation. When the usual yearly revision 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 which is hours out of the twenty-fouallowed them to go to their meals. It would be only just that they be permitted 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.

Contributions to the fund may be made to any of the divisions of the Ancient Order of Hibernians of Louisville, Jeffersonville or New Albany. The cause is a worthy one that calls for prompt action, and no doubt our s and many others will respond as liberally as their means will permit. The letter is as follows: Dear Sir You are, of course, 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 landlord all the same. Many persons have already died of hunger in the distressed districts. Many, thank God, have been saved through aid sent 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 Government 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 victims of England's 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.

Several attempts of the same kind have been made during the past three or four years. Let us hope the more recent effort will meet with more success. The Rt. Rev. Dr. Browne, Bishop of Cloyne, County Cork, Ireland, presided at a meeting of the priests of the diocese held last week, at which a resolution was passed protesting most emphatically against the deprivation of their civil rights intended by their exclusion from the membership of the County Councils under the new Irish Government bill. parrot in The only the world is that possessed by P. of the Casey, T.

Ireland is heavily taxed for the maintenance of British forces kept in the island, simply to overawe the peaceable inhabitants. Great Britain has in Ireland this moment in peace as many soldiers as the United States has in Cuba, where war is. Besides the soldiers the military police number over thirteen thousand. this is British justice and British civilization with a vengeance.

Battle r BnlllBahlnch Root of Iiinaricentft The Execution of Gen. Manro. the Quite undismayed by the cruel fate which had overtaken McCracken and his followers, the men of Down resolved to strike a blow for freedom. They assembled in the little town of Saintfield to the number of 5,000 men, and chose as their commander a trusty patriot named Henry Munro. Munro was a man of proved courage and, as we shall see presently, of exceptional military skill; but he labored under one great disadvantage. His instincts were so chivalrous that they compelled him to treat the rede-val- s as honorable foes, and not as they deserved to be treated viz., as ravenous beasts of prey, whom it would be a national service to kill on sight. This 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 man's life and no woman's honor was safe that 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 of drive them to madness. After, a few preliminary skirmishes at PortaferryandNewtownards Munro captured Ballinahinch, which he occupied 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 "BaHinahftieh": TmVmaneuver-Munr- a ately the soldiers gave themselves up to drunkenness, violence and rapine of every description. For a long time 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 overcome 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 of war was held. It was the general opinion that a midnight descent upon Ballinahinch would be irresistible, and that the enemy was absolutely at their mercy. Unfortunately Munro's delicate sense of honor would not permit him to take advantage of the royalists' helpless condition. No plea or argument could induce him to give orders to advance. His officers sullenly left his tent, inwardly cursing his chivalry, and one division of his army, amounting to close on 1,000 men, were so disgusted that they quitted the camp and dispersed. Munro's foolish magnanimity seems all the more remarkable when contrasted with the conduct of the royalists under similar circumstances. Not only did the latter never hesitate to attack the insurgents when reached the cannon's mouth and piked the artillerymen. In the mean time McConce and Townsend had advanced on the 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 r Med out of the town in the Belfast direction, leaving the in surgents in complete possession of Ballinahinch. Here again 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 battlefield. by the smoke that filled the narrow streets, the who were mostly simple peasants, thought the enemy had just received strong 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 helter-skelteHalf-blinde-d endeavored to prevent. He sent a body of guardsmen to intercept the redcoats as they advanced from Downpatrick, 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 Ballinahinch. 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 This fusillade upon the gunners. compelled the redunexpected volley coats to retreat for a time; but fresh troops were hurried up and they attacked McConce in overwhelming numbers. They then turned attention to Ballinahinch itself, training all their cannon upon the town and shelling it to such effect that Munro determined to abandon it for the moment and concentrate all his forces upon Ednevady Hill. A messenger was straightway 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 The 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 Ednevady. For some time the former remained inactive, but at last they summoned up courage enough to charge the rebels. So warm, however, was the reception they received that they quickly fell back upon Ballinahinch, considering that they had had quite enough fighting for ohe day. Soon the darkness came and immedi-- , The Clare Commission of Assizes was opened at Ennis on Friday last The before Mr. Justice O'Brien. Kilrush bribery charges formed the only important business, and Michael Cullinan and Michael Griffin, who were found guilty, were sentenced to one months' imprisonment, and were ordered to be dismissed from the office of Poor Law Guardian and disqualified from holding any public office for seven years. The Summer Assizes were opened for Meath before the Lord Chief Baron. He congratulated the grand jury on the peace and order of the county. In the Duleek burning case the prisoners were acquitted. Sir Peter O'Brien, Lord Chief Justice, opened the assizes at Nenagh, Tipperary. In his address to the grand jury his lordship said that he had much pleasure in congratulating them on the satisfactory condition of the North Riding of Tipperary. Mr. Justice Madden, addressing the grand jury of Westmeath, said their duties would be very light, as there was only one case of a serious nature to go before them. On Saturday Mr. Justice Kenny opened the County Longford Assizes, and congratulated the grand jury on the continued immunity of the county from serious crime.

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 antiquated pieces of artillery he possessed, or, indeed, upon the musket which about a 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 warfare such exploits as the capture of artillery are generally reserved for cavalry. There is no feat that requires such dashing courage and resolution as for infantry to take possession of the enemy's guns at the bayonet's point. With a thundering they broke into a run; and though hundreds were mowed down by showers of canister and grape- shot they never ceased t,ill they "Faugh-a-Bal-laghl- " as their legs and horses could carry them, the rebels were running south in the direction of Downpatrick.

Munro fell back upon Ednavady Hill, where, with a band of faithful followers, he held out for some time, but he was soon captured. The usual farce of a trial was held, and he was found guilty of high teason. He was hanged in front of his own house in his native town of Ballinahinch; then his bead was cut off, empaled on a pike and placed as a warning sign above the market place. With poor Munro's death the rebellion ended in the North. d A cablegram from Sydney says of the cen "The celebration tenary of the Irish rising of 1798 was very largely attended.

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 cost $10,000. 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.
