its most powerful and devoted friends in the death of the Most Rev John Walsh D D Archbishop of Toronto Canada says the editor of the Bos tou Pilot A native of Ireland born in the County Kilkenny May 23 1830 of old martyr and patriot stock Dr Walsh came to Canada in his early manhood and for fortysix of his sixtyeight years was thoroughly identified with the best interests of the land of his adoption No one could question his patriotism and the most thoughtful and farseeing Its cerned fresh proof of it in his unfailing practical interests in the question of Irish legislative independence- He saw what Home Rule had done for Canada He would have the Imperial Government realize were it but for self interest the value of a free and contented IrelandHe the Catholic Canadians of Irish blood so strongly in defense of their rights and of the respect due to their religious convictions that the Prince of Wales on his visit to Toronto in I860 felt compelled to rebuke and decline an alleged loyal demonstration in his honor by the local Orangemen The Archbishop in his later years was grieved at the disunion among the Irish leaders and proposed the Irish Race Convention of 90 to heal dissensions and make the Irish party once more a tower of strength to the Irish people That his efforts had but a partial success is the shame of men who preferred their own petty ambitions to the common good and in so far forth denied their 771 eAAJnuf2tQselJ1m lIt Agreat prelate a great patriot a horn organizer and leader of men a forceful speaker and writer a tender kindly generous friend there is mourning wherever he was known for Archbishop Walsh of Toronto May he rest in peace I The following are extracts from a sketch of his life writen at the time of his silver jubilee Evincing at an early age a desire to study for the priesthood John Walsh was sent to St Johns College Water- fordf where he made his preparatory studies with great success standing first in his class off philosophy He remained at St Johns one year when he decided that his vocation lay in the vast field of foreign missions Accordingly breaking all the endearing ties of home friends and native land he left for Canada in April 1852 The following autumn when studies began the young Mr Walsh entered the Grand Seminary of Montreal as a student of the Diocese of TorontoOn 1 Feast of All Saints 1854 he was ordained priest by Bishop Charbounel in St Michaels Cathedral Toronto In 1855 he was appointed to the Brock mission bordering on Lake Simcoe of which parish he was the first resident pastor In 1857 Father Walsh was removed from Brock and placed in charge of the more important parish of St IMarys in Toronto Here he made his first notable manifestations of his great gift for preaching the Word of God Very soon after the consecration of Dr Lynch in 1859 Father Walsh was ap pointed rector of St Michaels Cathedral On Easter Sunday 1802 Father Walsh was made Vicar General of the Diocese The following spring Vicar General w ls1Tsfter having been twelve years away determined on visiting Ireland His friends availed thejnselves of the opportunity to testify their regard by presenting him with a gold watch They also with great delicacy and thoughtfulness sent to Father Walshs mother a Present of a gold cross very massive and beautifully wrought with wreaths of shamrocks While abroad the Vicar General paid hits first visit to the Eternal City He was received most graciously After traveling some time in Europe Father Walsh spent a few months in Ireland visiting again the home of his childhood Sorrow had thrown its shadow over the hearthstone by removing hit father who had died the year previously But he had thejoyof offering up beneath the parental roof the holy sacrifice for those from whom he had been so long sepa rated but with whom he waiever closely united in ties of affection and bonds of faithl 1 FP The health of Dr Plnsonneault Bishop bf Sandwich becoming impaired

Tatted by the Holy Sse The Conaelra inn took place in St Michels Cathe 0 dinL Toronto Novetobtr 10 On Novem ber 14 Bishop Walsh was duly installed in the Cathedral of Sandwich In January 18C8 Bishop Walsh re moved the Episcopal residence from Sandwich to London to which city the See was again transferred by a decree- from the Propaganda dated 15 1800 Bishop Walsh celebrated the silver jubilee of his priesthood on 1C 1870 He visited Ireland again in 1882 In 1801 he had assisted at the lay ing of the corner stone of the OConnelll monument in Dublin and by a happy coincidence of events he took part on the 15th of August 1882 in the ceremony ofunveilingAt of the twentieth year ofr his episcopate November 1887 Ills lord ship again repaired to Rome to make the official returns of his diocese While Bishop Walsh was on his way back to to this country Archbishop Lynch ofr Toronto laid down in death the crozier which for twentyeight years he had cart ried with so much zeal On August 27 1889 Dr Walsh was appointed his suc cessor He was installed in the TorontoI Cathedral on November 27 of the same yearThe influence and character of Arch bishop Walsh was very soon felt com bining as he does to a wonderful degree suavity pf manner and firmness of pur pose Respect for authority was shown with a cordiality which proved that authority had won confidence and love while firmly requiring obedience- In March 1883 he was requested to act on the advisory council on religious congresses in connection with the Chicago Worlds Fair and accepted the appoint ment In February 1894 lie issued a stirring appeal to the friends of Irish Home Rule to support Hon Edward Blake with their generous subscriptions an appeal which was generously answered Toronto Montreal and Ottawa sent over 5000 He visited Ireland in the summer of 95 his health at the time being rundown by land work He met Hon Edward Blake in Dublin and returned to Toronto in August Mr Blake returned a little later and in a conference with the Archbishop looking to the revival of Canadian enthusiasm in the home rule case it was arranged that Mr Blake should deliver a public address in the Massey Hall upon the political situation in Ireland The great Liberal leader however being suddenly summoned back to his parliamentary duties at Westmin ter on October 17 the Archbishop pub lished his now famous proposal of The Irish Race Convention Before Mr Blakes departure they had fully dis cussed the matter and on the same Mr Blakes endorsement the Archbishops idea was given to the public The pro p 5SalTRSUglitJoytd life sterling friends of Irish home rule all the world over and was combatted in the English press On the 14th of that month also the Irish parliamentary party had unanimously decided to act upon the suggestion of Dr Walsh with regard to calling a convene tion representative of the Irish race at home and abroad to heal if possible the personal differences that had split the parliamentary force into factions On the 27th of November he opened St Johns Industrial School at Blantyre ParkDuring the summer of 1890 he gave a great deal of thought to the matter of the Canadian representation at the Irish Race Convention which hall been summoned to assemble on September 1 It was on leis suggestion in every case that the delegates who went to Dublin from To ronto were chosen He also had com munication with friends of home rule in the other cities in regard to this historic gathering The Ontario delegates de parted in August and it was not until the last day that the Archbishop found himself contrary to his great desire obliged to remain in Canada It would have thrilled his loyal Irish heart if he could have but heard the storm of ap plause with which his name and his message to the conventton were received in the Leinster Hall in Dublin In the summer of last year the Arch bishop for leis healths sake again vis ited his native Ireland and was greatly saddened by the signs of famine then ap pearing in the West He attended the anniversary dinner of the Irish Race Conventions held in Mr Hugh Ryans residence Hollydene in October and delivered a ringing speech His next stroke for home rule was to read a Canadian fund for the Irish parliamentary party which amounted to over 7000 This fund practically kept the cause going last year HOME AGAIN Messrs Joe Grimes and Thomas J

All Ills Outstanding Obligations EVENTS IN HIS BUSY LIFE Tire following article concerning one of this countrys leading and most honor able business men Mr John Cudahy is taken from the Chicago Chronicle and will prove intercresting reading to our citizens among whom he is well known Mr Cudahy has large business interests in Louisville being associated with Mr Charles Byrne in the mammoth packing house on Story avenue and his many business friends as well as employes are gratified over his merited success The article credits all to Chicago pluck while we insistthat a great share is due his Irish integrity and energy Otherwise we argree with the Chronicle which says Chicago grit and resourcefulness are well exemplified by the career of Jack Cudahy Had he possessed only a trifle less persistence had he faltered for an instant failure complete and final would have been his portion Six years ago he was rated at 4000000 Six months later he was rated at nearly 1000000 more through a daring deal in pork and provisions Five years ago August 1 his fortune was swept away in one day iri the Board of Trade When the smoke and dust of that fight blew away John Cudahy was something like I1500099 poor thau penniless he owed that sum above his fortune Last week lie paid off all of his obligations and is once more enrolled among the wealthy men ofChicago Grit was the potent factor in this re vival pf fortune Other men as skilled in watching the speculative cat jump and as ready to turn the leap to their private benefit have failed and stayed out Cudahy failed at a time when the nation seeme on tine verge of smashing and when dollars were as big as cart wheels to rich men The prospects for his re covering from the terrific blow in the be lief of able financiers were mighty slim Yet he went to work and with hundreds of thousands of dollars of paper against his name he struggled gamely until with in five years he has paid all and has a good big fortune besides There has been a peculiar feature to John Cudabys operations ever since he was a boy of 14 Fiveyear periods have been most marked in all that he has done He was born in Callan County Kilkenny Ireland on Novembers 1843 Early in 1849 his parents carte to this country When he was 10 years old they removed to Milwaukee At 16 he entered Edward Roddis big packinghouse and in a few years was a trusted employe Five years after he began work for John Plankinton He rose to tire position of manager and iinoue snore cycle of five years became a atb rjustastire warbrpte pat Then a number auehangea irercmade until t1 k 1870 when he went to Chicago and be gan packing and speculating In five years he was rated n millionaire and a leader on the board Five years later he had doubled his fortune Five yeas later he had reached the apex cornered pork and lard saw his millions vanish and himselfreduced to practical penury In another five years he paid off all of his obligations and is rich again John Cudahys revival of fortune will please his many friends In all iris dar ing operrtions and few men ever ex celled him in this reganl he was popular among all his associates Men in other walks of life poor laborers whose daily bread was earned in t1e plants he ran or was interested in all cognized in him not only a man of grcatskill and daring in finance but a man withI a heart for his less fortunate fellows Nits failure came whets tire nation was inn pinch for money and giltedged collateral was not snffi cient to procure the lloan needed to tide him over He gave up only when his resources were exhausted Then he was nearly 1400000 in debt But no man with the grit and energy of John Cudahy fillets as he was with native pluck fortified lby the push which characterizes the Chicago nan of busi ness could be kept down He dropped out for a time to recuperate his fortune andreturned to the arena filled with the purpose of regahl stground at least r to the extent of paying off the notes he had given to settle his deals He succeeded in thjs and also in again restoring his fortune to the point of wealth John Cudahy is a born speculator lIe is also a trained packer for in the early days of his youth when it became neces sary for limn to earn his own living he engaged in pork and beef packing business as a boy with Edward Roddis of Milwaukee He soon became a trusted employe as Ills native honor and great energy enabled him to grasp and preserve tine interests of his employer When 20 years of age he entered the Armour es tablishment at Milwaukee and for five years followed the same course winning in respect and ability all the time Then he went to the Plankinton establishment his exceptional abilities putting him in a position of great responsibility which in the usual term of five years resulted in a junior partnership He remained in Milwaukee as partner with his brothers and Roddis when that house was formed until 1870 when he went to Chicago and associated himself with Chapin uuder the name of Chapin Co In one year the firm name was changed to Chapin Cudahy and John began his career on the Board of Trade Then Michael and Patrick Edward Cud ally bought out the Chapin interest and John became a junior partner in the packing concern But he kept up his pace on the board and in five years after going to Chicago was a millionaire and recognized leader on the board In 1881 he had practically dropped out of active interest in the packing business but was rapidly piling up a big fortune in operations in pork and provisions with an occasional dip into the grain market He pegged away generally on the bull side of the market although his great shrewdness at times enabled him to take advantage of the bear side Everything he handled made money for hint until by the dawn of 1890 he was counted among the wealthy men of Chicago Pork and lard were his favorites and he began operations in 1891 which caused the financial agencies to

thought and sentiment are timely lust now when the arrogant pretention is be ingspread broadcast through every available means that money will procure that this is an AngloSaxon nation The Kentucky Irish American states its mis sion well when it says This paper is not issued to put forward the claims of those of Irish birth to the exclusion of other American citizens All that it will seek to do is to bring the attention of its fellowcitizens to the just claims the IrishAmericans have in sharing nil that goes to make this country great and glorious The paper is an eightpage weekly and presents a neat appearance Its columns contain numerous items of local news which should interest not only the citizens but Kentuckians of Irish bloodwherever they may be Its opin ions on matters of current interest are ex pressed in that clear forcible style which forces the interest of the reader and carries conviction The paper is under the management of Mr William M Higgins a newspaper man of experience and abilityEncouragement from such a source counts for a great deal and we will try to scatter broadcast the same idea of union and sympathy that has made a powerful organ of the Irish

have their allday outing at Riverview Park August 30 Dinner will be served by the ladies of the congregation As this one of the poorest parishes in the city it is hoped a large crowd will attend The many friends of Pallor Goggin O P who was formerly stationed at St Louis Hertrands will be sorry to hear off his death at Springfield Ky last week While stationed at St Louis Father Goggin was Spiritual Director o the Holy Name Society and was well1 liked by nil the members The annual outing of St Johns con gregation took place at Peru Grove on August 18 and an enjoyable time was had by all who attended The boat left at 9 oclock and was well filled The ladies of the congregation served dinner for a nominal sum The dining hall was in charge of Mrs James OConnor who was nsslstedbyMrs Mary Leah yJ1r W T Meehan and Mrs Elijah Mann Last Monday was the feast of the As sumption and it was celebrated in all the churches but at the Cathedral of the Assumption the services were unusually elaborate The altar looked beautiful with its myriad of lights and the music was above the ordinary There is a pious belief among many Christians that the fervent recitation ofa thousand Hail1 Marys on that day will obtain any special favor one wishes But this de votion is not practiced by many on ac count of the length of it In the archdiocese of Baltimore prayersI were offered two weeks ago in thanksgiving for the victories attendant on the American arms in the war with Spain When the writer was in Toledo a mouth ago at the Church of St Francis de Sales the pastor spoke feelingly on this subject and while thanking our Creator for our triumphs on land and sea also asked prayers for our sailors and soldiers who had fallen in those engagements And his request was responded to heartily everybody in the church answering in distinct voice Miss Susie F Swift is a recent convert to the Roman Catholic Church Miss Swift is a graduate of Vassar and after leaving college joined the Salvation array0u account of her health she was sent to London where she had charge of the Newsboys Home on Fleet street Later she returned to this country as as sistant to Miss Eva Booth and while in the discharge of duties in New York in vestigated the doctrines of the Catholic church and being convinced lost no time in receiving instruction and becoming member of the church The annual outing of the congregation of the Cathedral of the Assumption was a brilliant success One of the largest crowds that has been at Peru Grove this season and One of the most orderly wa gathered there to enjoy themselves And enjoy themselves they did There were about 2000 people on the grounds and the three boats had all they could do to carry the crowd The success of the outing was due principally to the hardwork of Mrs Chas Smith Miss Katie Walsh and Mr Mulligan They were assisted by a host of willing workers from all parts of the city About a thousand dol lars were cleared which will be used for frescoing the church As announced previously the Rev Louis G Deppen has resigned as pastor cf St Mary Magdalene church to do mis sion work among the negroes Father Murphy the recent assistant at St

been forwarding funds to relieve the distress in the fanihne stricken districts of Ireland received the follow ing letter acknowledgment from Miss Maud Goiine which conveys a forcible illustration of the lamentable state of affairs that have been existing in various parts of the country Over 12000 children are receiving a pennyworth bread daily in the schools in the famine districts The average attendance of the children in theserschools had fallen during the commence ment of the famine front 50 to 70 per cent Since we started this school children bread fund the average attendance has risen to normal The poor little things were actually too weak from starvation to walk long distances over hilt and bog without breakfast Now the mothers faudliesrto school in order to secure for them their pennyworth bread It seems to me in famine times this is one of the most practicalways of helping the people without demoralizing them It secures schoolnwhich is of first importance for their future and it takes some of the awful pressure and anxiety off the parents to know that the little ones at least haven something to eat I can not describe to you the terrible look of larger on limed little skeleton children I saw in the schools in the West Your kind donation will be duly ac knowledged in 1 Irlande Libre and in all the Irish papers Please thank your readers for theirgenerosity and tell them that it will supply breakfast to thousands of starving little ones I am thankful to say the new crops will be in in August even the mountain districts and the West where they are always very late and this will for the time put n stop to the actual famine time condition of the West of Ireland is a disgrace to any civilized nation The people are systematically being starved by England in order to force them either to join her army or navy or to leave Ireland Everywhere the recruiting agents are going about but thank God our peasants realize now that fighting for England means fighting for unjust and wicked causes and they prefer starving growingfevery year 1crate inhabitants of Englands great factory towns are not the stuff to make soldiers or sailors they lack both the physical courage and strength and Eng lands big navy which we hear so much about is crippled by want of men RECENT DEATHS Mrs Ann Maher eighty years of age and a highly respected woman died at the home of her

interest fought shy of the goods for a collapse was certain The price fell steadily until about 11 oclock when it was officially announced that he had failed and deals for his account was ordered closed out The stampede in pork and lard was awful The former fell rapidly to 1050 nearly 9 on the day while lard dropped with fearful rapidity from 975 to 590 Something like 0000000 went from Cudahy
