F KFNTUtY IRISH AMERICAN II IVOL 1NO 8 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 3 1898 PRICE FIVE CENTS STILL LIVES Spirit of 98 Not Dimmed by the Intervention of Time Irishmen Gather in Dublin From All Parts of the World to Participate in the Tone Centenary The Greatest Procession Ever Seen in IrelandAddresses by Redmond Dillon and Others UNITED STATES WELL REPRESENTED One of the finest demonstrations that ever manifested a nations feelings of honor for an illustrious son took place in the streets of Dublin From all parts of the land came admirers of Wolfe Tones character and his lifelong efforts for his native country to pay their reverence to his memory Tone never stcod so high in the estimation of Irishmen as he stands today A hundred years have rolled by since his mortal remains were placed be neath the turf by the stile of the rained church in the little Gods acre at Bodens town His name has passed into history and to gain a knowledge of what lie was and what he strove to do involves an amount of historical research not open to every one And when in spite of this necessary investigation into the records of the past which has to be undertaken ere we can pass judgment on Tone one finds a magic in his name greater than that of the most popular of presentday politicians it shows that the 08 centenary movement has not been organized in vain For at length it is plain that the people are beginning to read something of their own history and it needs but a continuance of this process to insure that what Tone aimed at shall at length be necoaiplished After a century of corn parative neglect justice is now being done to the memory of the founder of the United Irishmens Association It is at last realized that he was a wonderful combination of a brainscarrier and a man of action that his objects were of the highest that he lid in him all the essen tial qualities requisite for success and UtttJ if failure atteHdedihis efforts Jleat IiJtin t armcll in his bgKesr and apparently most visionary projects lie was intensely practical and if lie had been but generally representative of the men tal mold of Irishmen in 1789 the annals of the century that has passed over this country since then would not form such sad reading When one finds such widespread appreciation of Wolfe Tone as was made evident recently it is time for the most despondent Irishman to take heart U of grace and admit that there is still some reason to hope for the future It is easy to talk of tens of thousands but impossible to know whether one is very near the truth when he ventures into the region of figures in estimating the size of popular demonstrations It iisi Useless to attempt to say how many peo pIe looked on the procession or how many took part in it In both cases the number was very large The day wasi generally observed as a holiday in the city Nearly all the leading business es tablishments closed for the day and the employes went to swell the crowds of on lookers in the streets The muster off country people always fairly large ini Dublin on August 15 wis unprecedent edly large Thousands arrived at all the railway termini All the provinces were particularly r large number of Northerns who were ini evidence There probably never before was such a big array of natives of Ulster in the city on any given day Wolfe Tones intimate association with the North where the United Irishmens or ganization was founded probably ac counts for the dimensions of this whole sale friendly invasion The appearance of the procession was inspiriting in the highest degree Ban ners many of them richly ornamented and artistically finished everywhere abounded The display of banners wasI finer than anything that has been seen in the city for many years Bands were almost as numerous as the banners andl thieve was a constant succession of mel dyFor the procession to pass a given point occupied about two hours andl When it is added that the various con tingents were compactly marshalled andl followed at a brisk pace close on one an other without any interval beth a letter idea has been given of its siz4 thanI could be conveyed by any random state ment as to so many thousands The backbone of the profession was as might lbe itaafrfnedj formed of the different Du- bonn trades bodies These were all side utelYrepresenndand made a moatl creditable display The provinces also were well to the fore Belfast is deservr Jug of special mention The twelve bun dred men who represented the National I Utf of the Northern capital bore with resplendenthtieg1oriea t contrasted advantageously with the weai ihttbeaten appearance of some of the older Dublin banner At WelieNof the Northerrt contingent rode U M Mc Sorley of Belfast arrayed in grew vel1 vet ae on the day of the Hcntwlutawn- demoutraiion none atontba ago Cork o 0 and Waterford also sent fine contingents I with bands and banners and Drogheda I Dundalk and Wexford were among the j IINationalistIII corIII IICorkI Sligo and Clonmel with many members of their corporations or Town Councils also took part in the procession The youth of the city were well to the fore The Catholic Boys Brigade sent some hundreds of smartly dressed boys who marched with the air of young soldiers while several other bands of little fellows not attached to any particular organiza tion took their places here and there along the line of march and kept with the procession to the end A large proportion of the processlonists bore or namental pikes and these coupled with the green sashes and badges that were generally worn added considerably to the effect of the spectacle A prominent place was given in the procession the French and American delegates and while the latter would have been made more numerous but for the outbreak of the war with Spain yet it is highly cred itable to the Irish in America that theyI were able in the circumstances to send such a representative selection of leading citizens The car at the head of the pro cession containing the foundation stone of the Tone monument brought from the Cave Hill Belfast and the old chariot of OConnell reupholstered in green were objects of the greatest interest to the onlookers From a marshals point of view the route might have been better chosen It led through some of the narrowest and most tortuous thoroughfares in Dublin If convenience alone were the considera tion this would have been borne in mind and direct routes through wide streets would have been adopted But everything had to give way to the claims of historical association Dublin abounds in places whose story if it could be told would be rich in narratives of the men of 08 Clearly it was desirable that the procession should pass as many of these as possible and the official route if long and complex had at any rate the advan tage of bringing the processionists into close proximity to many spots of intense interest to those who do not fear to speak of 98 Such are the house in Stafford street where Wolfe Tone was born and which is now marked by a memorial tablet the site of Newgate Prison where the Sheares were hanged and Bond was murdered St Michans church where the Sheares Bond and Emuiet are Interred old Moira House where Lord Ed ward Fitzgerald was wont to resort St Catherines church in front of which Emmet was executed 153 Thomas street where Lord ardwas 1n fif1ht11 and Trinity College where several of the bravest spirits of the 98 movement learned to love Ireland and to scorn death in her service To see these places was an object for the attainment of which it was worth making some sacrifices and in spite of some temporary inconveniences the processionists were much bet ter pleased at the route actually followed than they would have been had a shorter and more direct journey through wider thoroughfares than Church street or Vat ling street been marked out for them At all points along the route the procession was watched by eager citizens from crowdedwindows and the enthusiasm particularly at the places of historic in terest was continuous and unmistakably genuine The procession was however a mere temporary commemoration of Wolfe Tone a sudden proclamation by the na tion to the world at large to tell all whom it might concern that she still cherished the memory of the son who had so cher ished her in the time of her tribulation The real work of the daywas the laying of the foundation stone of the Wolfe Tone monument that shall serve to re mind generations yet unborn of a great man who had in days long past planned plotted fought and died that they might live as freemen in the land in which God cast their lot The site for the monument at the head of Grafton street is one of the noblest in Dublin and it is for Irishmen now to see to it that the monument is worthy of the site and as far as possible worthy of the man Pro ceedinga augur well for the speedy completion of this urgent national project They showed as has so often before been shown to the selfsatisfied and astonished Saxon how Irishmen no matter whatt their differences on points of policy or other domestic details can combine and work together for a common national ob ject and thua prove their appreciation of the doctrines of him who so clearly point ed out that Ireland and England are distinct countries inhabited by different races that their interests are divergent and that while those of Ireland are6ub servient to those of England Ireland must continue to be the sufferer It was after 0 oclock before the lost of the procession had got close to StephensI green though the first of it passed the City Hall at seven minutes after 4 Note t in that huge procession but fully be lieved of Tone after the memories that had been evoked by the scenes they passed en route that He lived for lila love for his country he died They were all that to life had entwinedl him Tile meeting which took place on the site of the monument at the junction ofr Grafton street and St Stephens greeu did not take place until the whole of the immense procession had filed put the spot The jocsed1iisat the end of tie journey constituted truly on of the wostJm

stirring speeches delivered from the platform Nothing could have been more iimpressive than the spectacle that was presented and the outburst of enthusiasm which was heard when the veteran 67 man Mr OLeary laid the foundation stone taken from the famous trysting place of Cave Hill The two beautiful I flags forwarded by the Daughters of 08 I j waved over the gearing for lowering the flag The effect of the evergreen decorations and the display of bunting a blending i as already stated of Irish French and American colors was very fine Mr John OLeary presided to whom as Pres iident of the 98 Centenary Committee Mr Collins read the following address from the Organizing and Memorial Com mittees Dear Mr OLearyAmong the many monuments which have found place in the thoroughfares of Irelands metropolis not one has yet been erected to the memory of the brotherhood of heroes whose labors and sacrifices have hallowed the name of 98 In affirmation of our resolve to repair the neglect we have assembled here today On this site granted to us by the unan imous vote of the Dublin Corporation we purpose to erect a memorial in some de gree worthy of the chiefs and soldiers of the gallant confederacy which came so near the attainment of Irelands independence in the glorious struggle otD8 We have come together representatives- of all parts of our island and of widely separatedcommunities of Irelands children beyond the seas to attest our loyalty tto the tradition of nationality handed down to us from the days of the United Irishmen To honor the memory of Wolfe Tone Lord Edward Fitzgerald Father Murphy MCracken Emmet Munro Russell Michael Dwyer the 1 United Irishmen and the men of 08 of all creeds of all parties and of all classes we realize that we must put aside all minor claims upon our allegiance and jjoin in true fraternity in promoting this tribute to the men who first gave meaning i and effect to the doctrine of brother 1 hood amongst Irishmen It was then the first consideration of the 98 Centenary i Committee that here today there should be no influence to distract attention I from the first purple of our gathering i Failing the pteseici cf a

of 08 was unshakable whose lionesty end disinter I ht iAI C to Iai T rs liPiV inatfshould beasslgnedtbe task Off lay I ing the foundation stone On you sir we call to perform the ceremony today You are looked upon as a man of lofty and unselfish patriotism who has kept to the course taken with manly pride and unfaltering courage more than a generation ago In your conduct of this 98 Centenary movement you have ever sought to overcome dis trust and suspicion by frankness and plain dealing So it comes that surrounding you are men whose differences on matters of lesser moment to our cause may be strongly marked but whose unity of thought and feeling on the essential elements of nationality has found expression in the remarkable series of demonstrations in honor of the men of 98 which has culminated in this mighty gathering today It must be a pleasant thought for you sir as it is for us all that the fire of pa triotism which burnt in the breast of the founder of the United Irish Society has not been quenched in the hearts of all his descendants The trowel with which you will perform the ceremony is the gift of the granddaughter of Wolfe Tone and the reply made to the invitation to attend this ceremony gives eloquent proof that distance from the old home has not obliterated the heroic memories in which the family of Tone may take pride nor chilled the ardor of the love which should be borne for Ireland by those who claim descent from the foremost among the pa triotsof98 The stone which you are asked to lay has been brought from the historic Cave Hill whereon Tone and his heroic comrades imposed on themselves a solemn obligation never to desist in their efforts until they had secured the independence of their country Thus we have linked together associations which sliould make this occasion memorable Jn asking you to lay this foundation stone we do so in the earnest hope that when this memorial to the men of a chiv alrous era has been erected it may serve to remind us that the cause which en listed in its service the men of 08 must ever command the wholehearted devotion of the brave and puresoulcd if the ideal of nationality which they hoped to attain be preserved to us as our guide The address was handsomely bound in leather Mr OLeary who was received with great enthusiasm said in reply I am proud to be here today and 1 ain all the prouder because I know that I am here because I was in the dock in Green street tome thirtythree years ago and in PenionviUe Portland and elsewhere for some twenty years after But the ques walbutrof

Oreea Street LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY SEPT 3 1898 A PLEA FOR THE STUDY OF THE IRISH LANGUAGE fnEvery nation has its own tongue its annals and legends Not one is 11ricberin these particulars than the Celtic On account of the cruelty practiced against our forefathers their language being forbidden them as well as their religion the mother tongue in many parts of Ireland was dropped and English substi tuted in its place Consequently in the homes of Irish people our ears are not accustomed to its use Children often ask what it is like andwhy it is not spoken saying that German Italian and French can be heard at any time but not so the Celtic A living proof that the English Tiave got the better of uSj a lasting illustration of our own stupidity if we allow this to go on and relegate the language of saints and historians of poets and theolo gians to the back shelves and out oftheway drawers of our libraries Let the Irish Renaissance that has been going on of late years across the ocean be introduced among us and our educated men and women who have time for study take up the neglected branch and learn its beauties If the rush for money has hitherto left our people with little time for intellectual work they can at least teach the younger generation a respect and love for this ancient language and tell them how it comes that it is not commonly spoken wherever the Celt has immigrated into AmericaI irace without its own distinctive tongue ous how debased how nothing I Without a history without a liter ature I lu the heart of Africa there might exist such a stunted starved monstrosity but not in Erin Her music and her folklore plentiful enough to fill immense libraries are the loveliest and most spiritual in the world Can more be said How demoniacal the hatredand how farseeing the cruel policy of a government that forbade to a people the use of its own language Let us fool them Too long has it lain cold and neg lected but if we lay it close to our hearts the warmth will revive it and we may reasonably hope to see it thrive and grow TRADES UNIONS OF TODAY j A short time ago five thousand union cloakmakers in New York forced the manufacturers to sign wage agreements for the coming yearThis news was printed in a brief j paragraph in the press dispatches A similar item appears every few weeks What a sensation such ac tion would have created fifty years ago Yet today it only goes to show the appreciation of the pro gress that has been made in the organization of labor Today the right to belong to v labor union is almost as unques breatheSomeagainst union labor The same fellows would corner air and sunshine and retail it if they could They are few in number however The majority of men capitalists r and workers alike mean to be fair and to do what is just Because the determination of labor to organ ize was just the opposition to itC has quickly disappeared and what was o1ett1etely a determined claim has now become almost a recognized ndvested right Some individuals have predicted hat the country would go to smash n six monU18Htf the time iever same when a man could not man Jhis own business9 Bute we tJ U nn have not gone to smash i far from it We have lately gone into an extensive new deal in real estate All that labor organization means all that it ever can mean as sen sible men saw from the firstis that it can force art employer to be fair Fair men have never been seriously troubled by labor unions even in the years when they were learning how to organize and were making mistakes Thoughtless tyrannical mean men with bad advisers have been troubled a good deal They are wiser now and bet ter and have learned a valuable lessonLabor unions say that employers shall not compel men to work over time without extra pay i that they must give them as safe and whole some a place to work in as possible and that they must refrain from petty meanness and tyranny and discrimination which might be in flicted on individuals if they were singlehanded No fairminded em ployer can object to this programme No sensible wellofficered union asks anything which is unfair If it should it is almost sure to be beatenAll the results of organized labor have been good Shorter hours the selfrespect that comes from membership in an organization which will protect a man from wrong the discipline of organizing and winning the fight have im proved the temper and manhood of those who do the nations work The future of our civilization is in audsotorganizedjabpr PEACE WITH HONOR AND WITH PROFIT One of the most able and sensi ble articles relative to the war that has come under our notice is the following from the Philadelphia Catholic Standard and Times which we hope will be carefully read by some of the leading men and writ ers of Kentucky Grimvisaged war has smoothed his wrinkled frontand we most devoutly trust that the same front may remain for years without a crease or crowsfoot i for war spells ruin to many a household and to many a commercial house We have little fear that the war with Spain will be reopened it says It is true that the present cessation of warfare rests only upon the authority of a protocol that is a prelim inary overture for a final agreement upon a peace between the belliger ent parties But it is equally true that there is a mutual desire for peace behind it and this desire ought to be effectual in bringing about an agreement among the ne gotiatorsOne bone of contention has been flung into the arena of discussion and appears likely to cause trouble This is the question of the future control of the Philip pines It is seriously proposed by a large number of public men and newspaper editors that the control of the whole of the Philippine Islands be assumed by the United States not only as a duty but as a right A vast deal of eloquence is being expended in siistainment of this view and a vast deal of argu went some ingenious most of it very diiugenious It seems to us that the wholematter requires only a very simple test There isa question of fact at bottom of it and a question of national honor We are bound by the law of nations and by that law we are pledged to deal with thiilquHtinin accordance with lime ictslJoftl e else The terms of the protocol with our late adversary are binding no less l1 I t 1 A n i L V I upon us than upon him Under these terms given under the band and seal of the United States as represented by President McKinley the future control of the Philippines was to be left to the decision of the Peace Commissioners Nothing that transpired after this solemn pact was signed could alter the agreement All the fine talk about territorial expansion manifest des tiny and so forth may be passed by as the idle wind Manifest duty was our impelling motive in going to war manifest duty must be our guiding star in closing it The path of duty now lies in the scru pulous observance of our agreement with Spain and passing by the in citements of the expansionists as insultingtemptations We do not desire our President to rank in his tory with such personages as Fred erick the Great or William of Or ange the shameless breakers of treaties and royal promises Peace we are confident is now fully assured and with the return of peace we have a right to antici pate a return of that prosperity which has been banished for too long a period by our unsettled do mestic concerns in the first place and by the outbreak of war in the second We here in Philadelphia have suffered more severely than any other locality perhaps by these unfavorable conditions We have been especial sufferers from the war and the protracted disturbances in Cuba which preceded it The full extent to which we have been affected by these causes can never be known but we can form some notion of the loss from the statistics of our imports and ex ports From these it appears that our trade with Cuban ports since the insurrection broke out has dwindled almost to nothing Four years ago the imports amounted to twenty million dollars last year they produced only two millions How calamitous such a loss was to the city can easily be estimated Many a poor trader must have been ruined and many a working house hold driven to the wall in consequence of thetvithdiawalof such a vast sum front the general fund We believe that without being accused of overoptimism we may look for a speedy revival of our vanished prosperity now that the channelsof legitimate trade are no longer given over to the mining and countermining of destructive war In a state of war a few persons make fortunes but millions are made to feel the pinch of poverty It is on the poor the burden falls the stress of additional taxation the deprivation of the household breadwinners the cessation of the employment in the factory and last but not least the agonizing sorrow for those who fall on the field or are brought home to die a lingering death shorn of limb and the means of earning a mats livelihood These things are little heeded by the selfish traffickers in war and the thoughtless crowd But they are the one element in the situation which appeals to the phi lanthropist and the patriot It is to secure peace the soldier fights and it is the conquest of peace which the nation celebrates when it celebrates victory NOMINEES FOR CONGRESS The Democrats at their conven tion

found after his death Apart from its intrinsic worth and the interest in the subject treated the book will be much appreciated here on account of its well known author Father ONeil having been

upon St Leonards day no other Irishman has brought us within such measurable distance of the goal of all our wishes If were to stop here I should have said quite enough to justify tall the honor that we or future genera tions of Irishmen can pay to the memory of Tone But I can not stop here I must do what I can within the reasonable lim its of a speech to pointout in some little detail what exactly Tone did He first combined all classes and creeds of his countrymen in that body so well known to all of us under the honored name ofa United Irishmen How he did this time will not allow me to tell but I should ad vise all of you to find itout for yourselves in that charming book Tones Life by his son and in Maddens Lives of the United Irishmen Two things however in the life of Tone I must for a moment dwell uponthe scene in Bantry Bay and the last great scene of all You all know or at least you onght to know something about the greatest of the three expeditions that Tone succeeded in getting fitted out for the invasion of Ireland They con sisted roughly speaking of a fleet of fortythree vessels with troops to the number of over 13000 on board and an ample supply of arms for the use of the Irish Hoche if not the greatest one of the two greatest generals then living was in command of the troops Human ly speaking if that force in its entirety had reached Bantry Bay there was an end of English rule in Ireland But alas I that was not to be You all know what is proverbially said about certain people having a certain sort of luck Some 0000 men iu all succeeded in reach ing the Irish coast butwithout their general in chieE Tone even in the absence of Hoche wished to land with such forces as they had and at last brought the French commanders round to his opin ion But man proposes and God dis poses On the night before the day they hadagreed upon for the landing the ships were again scattered to the winds and forced to find their way back to France as best they could But what must have it been the feeling of Tone during all this trying time I fancy his agony was greater than in the last great scene of all though his hope of eventual success must have still stood high But let us hasten to that last scene In the year 97 a great Dutch expedition was ready to sail but was shut up in the Texel by adverse winds while an English fleet growing stronger day by day guarded the sea out side Finally there was a battle in which the Dutch were defeated and so there was an end of that Then came a wearying time for Tone when Hoche was dead and Carnot removed from pow er and everything depended upon Napo leon Bonaparte who apparently never intended to aid Ireland Then came on the fateful year 98 itself the arrest of the chief leaders the outbreak of the insur rection and its suppression after the many gallant fights of which we all have a d 26 know how Tone felt during S2d period you must read his diary 1 and this you can now easily do in a little sixpenny book by Miss Milligan where the whole thing is very well epitomized But at last Tone was to find his way back to Irelandto a hopeless fight and a cer tain death A small French fleet with Wolfe Tone on board had barely reached Lough Swilly when it found itself pursued by a much stronger English squad ron Some of the lighter French ships were able to effect their escape and Tone was entreated by all to sail with them seeing that whatever might be the fate of the Frenchmen who remained Tones fate was certain But he simply answered Shall it be said that I fled whilst the French were fighting the battles of my country Then came the surrender of the French ship after a desperate de- tensethe recognition of Tone among c the French prisoners of warhis dispatch to Dublin in fetters his trial by courtmar tialand his sentence to be hanged his English enemy with its wonted want of generosity refusing his only request that he should be granted the death of a soldier But I can not go on The trial and the tragedy in prison are agonizing reading but you must find out all about them for yourselves in the life by the son or at worst in Miss Milligans little book One thing however I may give In a cause like this says Tone success is everything Success in the eyes of the vulgar fixes its merit Washington succeeded and Kosciusko failed But thank God we are no vulgars here today To us Tones failure is grander than any success for he failed gloriously in a great attempt I shall not keep you any longer ye have many other speakers no doubt better worth listening to to hear There are many lessons to be learned from the life of Tone but we do not mean to be controversial or I hope too lengthy here today If wemean that Ireland should be free and I hope we all Unitmed Irishmen again fin a literal sense at least and personally I could wish that we were all United Irishmen in the national sense n tooA memorial parchment was here depos ited in the hollow of the stone together with a

amongst them that day and he would i be glad to see union amongst Irishmen i Irishmen united would be sure to conquer against any ice Mr John Meagher Bathurst Austra Ha who was loudly cheered seconded the resolutions He said the Irishmen in Australia never forgot the people at home in Ireland In all Irish movements there was no doubt but that the Irish in Aus tralia were always at the front There was no movement which would be for the good of Ireland but would find support from their countrymen in Australia All sections high and low were with the people at home and the Irish national 1 movement receives in Australia the bless ing of the Protestants as well as that of the Catholics and the members of other 1 denominationsMr Transvaal South Af rica who was loudly cheered supported the resolutions He said he could assure them that Irishmen in South Africa were heart and soul with the people at home in their struggle for freedom The Rev Father Supple of Boston f said it was a great pleasure to him td sec such a holy of young Irishmen gathered together to give expression to their stead fast devotion to the cause of Irish free dom The people of America knew what was to fight for liberty and they knew also what the acquisition of that glorious gift of God was He hoped the lessons of this day would remain implanted it t every one of their hearts Wherever Irishmen were all over the world they would follow the principles of Wolfe t Tone whose memory they venerated Irishmen united could conquer the world Unite for your altars and fires Unite for the green graves of your sires 1 Unite for God and your native land Professor Mouis of the French deputa t tion said he desired to thank them on t behalf of the Irishmen of France for the I reception accorded to him He wouldII remember it all his life and he felt the I deepest gratitude to those who honored I him in such a manner and he could as I sure them that they had the best wishes of the French nation Mr W B Yates said he desired to say few words on behalf of the Irishmen ii England This immense demonstration had been held at a very momentous time in Irish history England had persuaded t herself that Ireland discredited by din t union was about to submit cries of j Never England had persuaded her self that she could settle the Irish ques tion with a handful of arms They had t answered England by that great demonstration today She was no longer de I ceived j she knew Ireland cherished the I same spirit still This movement had I come from the people themselves When J the leaders were not at the helm the peo j pIe came forward and steered the ship into safe waters This movement sprung from the hearts of the people like smoke from the inextinguishable fire of patriot ism which burned within their hearts foreverThe resolutions were then put and carriedMr John Dillon M P said Fellow nationalists the man whose statue will stand on this spot was a man cast in he role mold He was a man who from his earliest boyhood by the Intuition of his genius took a wider and deeper grasp of the problem of Irish politics in his day than did Grattan Flood or Charlemont Bern a soldier anda statesmanborn in this city of Dublin in the year 1763 he diedat the hands of his enemies in 1708 on the 14th of November so that at the hour of his death he was only a few months over thirtyfive years of age j and yet brief as that life was it was a life filled with glorious effort for Ireland j for who can name in the long annals of the patriots of Ireland one man who has dose more for his country than Theobald Wolfe Tone He has left from that brief life an example to his countrymen which has animated generation after generation of young Irishmen to tread in his footsteps and which remains to this day a mighty influence fighting for all that is noble in the Ireland of this day In 1791 Tone wrote his first pamphlet on behalf of the Irish Catholics and when he wrote that pamphlet it is reported in his life that he did not know one Catholic in Irelandand yet within two months he was the trusted friend agent and almost leader of the Catholics of Ireland j and never let it be forgotten that the first blow which Tone struck in the cause of Irish freedom was a blow to set free the Catholics of Ireland He said with the spirit of a true democrat We can have no true or lasting liberty in Ireland which is not based on the equal rights of all the citizens of Ire land And when after a few years he was struck down by his cruel and bloody enemies the brother of the great Napo leon Lucien Napoleonwhen he stood up in the Assembly of France the glo rious Assembly of Five Hundred to move that provision be made by thei French nation for the widow and child ren of Tone he used words which should always be impressed in the mem cry of Irishmen as a testimony of one of the leaders of the greatest nation fin Europe in that day to the character of one of our countrymen to whom we are aaMwUed hmoree to do honor Oti that riMInI D G NtrUOty I1U+ eiH A RX AN to call attention to the widow and children of a man whose memory is dear and venerable to Ireland and to Prance who perished in Dublin assassinated by the illegal verdict of a courtmartial And then he went on to say that his talents and his courage announced him as the future Washington of Ireland In these sentences he spoke only the sober language of truth I confess what has al ways struck me as one of the most sublime spectacles of human progress and struggles for liberty was the spectacle of Wolfe Tone as he stood before the court martial in this city in the power of cruel a and dastardly enemies and when he knew that his life was forfeited and that the hour of his death was at hand It is easy to be heroic and courageous in the field of battle when your blood is hot and strike a blow for fatherland when ones j comrades are butchered at ones side but standing powerless before your cruel l enemies in cold blood with death before you then I say the metal of which a man is made is tried and with all the agonizing thoughts of wire and children for he hada young wife and three children to whom he was devotedly attachedin the whole annals of human history I know no more magnificent spectacle of human greatness than when Tone confronted his enemies With a firmness calmness and dignity great as was ever displayed he defied his enemies and went to his death a with a courage that illustrated a page of Inch history which will remain forever to be cherished by the children of Ireland We honor his memory here today in the city in which he was assassinated We have shown by this magnificent demonstration that his principles are triumphant and I recommend all of you to study his life his writings and his teachings They are a precious inheritance to the Irish people and one which if studied acted upon will be in my judgment- the best guidance to the patriots heart Mr John E Redmond M P who was received with prolongedenthusiasm said Fellowcountrymen I can not but feel how poor and how weak words are after the demonstration of today The eloquence of your numbers and your enthusiasm could not be increased by any words and it seems to me almost as if it would have been better to have let this great demonstration speak for itself speak for itself to England of the determination of the Irish people to stand by their country and to have left speeches out of the programme altogether and yet it is impossible for such a demonstra tion as this to come to a close without togetheriEngland that however men in the current politics of the day may have different views as to methods at the same time in the essentials that is in our devotion to the national cause and in our undying hostility to English rule we Irish Nation alists stand absolutely united around this statue today Mr Dillon has quoted some words from Lucien Bonapartes speech shut Theobald Volfr Tone I was Beading that speech myself this Corning and I was struck by this extraordinary prophesy which Lucien Bona parte made on thatspes lrin November 17997 He used these words1iThe day he said will doubtless come in that same city of Dublin and on the spot the satellites of Britain reared the scaf fold where they expected to wreak their vengeance on Tone where the inde pendent people of Ireland will erect on that spot a trophy to his memory and will yearly celebrate on the anniversary of his trial the festival of their union round his monument Well now thank Godafter the hundred years that have passed at last today the Irish people have fulfilled that prophesy of Lucien Bonaparte The hundred years that have passed have vindicated the purity of the motives the loftiness of the character and I will say also the wisdom of the aims of Tone and of the United Irishmen Fellowcountrymen there are many dif ferent views which are taken by histor ians of the insurrection of 1708 One of the most common of those views is that that movement was merely a movement of rejfistence on the part of men who were driven to arms by cruelties and bar haritiespf every kind Well in one sense and as applying to some of the rebels of 08 that view was a true one But if we regard the 08 movement broadly the view is a false one so far at any rate as Tone himself and the founders of the sO- ciety are concerned that view was false because the 98 insurrection was the re sult of a deliberately cautiously and ably plannedeffort to achieve national liberty Fellowcountrymen Tone and his asso ciates were not drawn into arms simply by the barbarity of English troops and defense of their lives and their homes No they were driven into arms by a higher and loftier ideal the ideal of creating on the soil of Ireland a free government and of raising the flag of liberty I say therefore the view that many his torians have expressed that the 98 in surrection was merely a movement of resistence against the barbarities of the English is not true The movement wasI the purest movement for liberty that il lumines the annals of any country since the world began This meeting today ought I think teach a lesson to our rulers Here we have assembled in the city of Dublin representatives from the gallant nation of France a nation remember which is allied to Ireland not merely by sentiment but by historical l tradition and which is allied to our race as kinsmen of the same blood We have here also representatives of the great and free Republic of Americathat great land the home of liberty that great land that always opened a refuge to our suf feting and oppressed people that great land in the words of one of her own sons Whose freelatchatrinic was never yet drawn in against the meanest child of Adams kindred We welcome these men here as friends and as allies and today when England isolated M she is Iis looking around and begging foralliance e with other countries we today are able ItO point to allies in prance and allies ila

when in the complications of the world Ireland would once again have an oppor t tunity of striking a blow for liberty would rally to the cause of the most an cient and longoppressed nationality in the world What lessons arc we to bring home from this demonstration At any time for the last hundred years in my be liefand long before even the limits of a hundred years if Ireland Cathplic and Protestant were united it would have i been possible tQ achieve Irish freedom Let this 98 movement in this year create great broad national platform let us not tolerate any man who raises hjs voice I against a brother Irishman because of his creed Let us remember that while we Catholics I am speaking now to the Catholics present who are in the ma jority let us never forget that some of the best and bravest of our race were fol lowers of the newer creed which gave to Ireland Tone Emmet and Lord Edward Fitzgerald Let us if we can for this year announce a new era of toleration and brotherly love let us endeavor to weld Catholic and Protestant North of Ireland and South of Ireland into one unitednation When we do believe the day will be near at hand when you will be able to assemble here in Dublin to celebrate the realization of the dream for which Tone died and bled to erect here flag of freedom over a selfgoverned and respected nation Mr Rogers of Worcester Mass said it was his pleasing duty to move the Lord Mayor to the second chair and to propose a vote of thanks to Mr John OLeary for presiding at that meeting He joined with the other speakers in ask ing them to unite again and if they did they would have the support of the States Then they would never cease until that dark cloud which has for so long hung over their countrys destinies sinks beneath the gorgeous sunburst of freedom and independence Father Coppin of Philadelphia in seconding the vote said he was proud to see such a great assembly and he took an especial pleasure in having his name associated with those of Wolfe Tone and of John OLeary whose name will live in history as long as that of Wolfe Tone Father Coppin came there a stranger and they took him in He had no intention of speaking he came simply to lis ten and to see the demonstration but when he found that Philadelphiathe cradle of American independencewas- not f represented he thought it right to step forward and represent the city of his adoption The priests in America dont t mix in politics and if they told any of I their parishioners to vote for any ticket I they would tell them to mind their own I business Pennsylvania was called the keystone of the States the keystone of that beautiful arch of States and glorious Union the motto of which wastin Pluri- bus Unum Would to God Irishmen at home and abroad would adopt that motto Irishmen were the backbone of Pennsyl vania and a halt dozen other States which tbsy controlled and dominated Their illustrious PresdentlTvijJJjara Mc Kinley was thedescrti lan JjfJ Irish GotheywerelafIag6notlierl i to union and brotherhood without which I liberty is impossible The Irish at home I andabroad wanted unity and an Ireland free united and immortal He felt proud I of being among them today and to clasp the hand of his friend John OLearyI The signmanual of the United Irishmen was the clasped hand Let them make their leaders clasp hands across the grave of the martyr Tone and if they did notI they should be sent flying about their business Iujseconeling the vote of thanks to John OLeary he hoped he would be preserved for many years to guide his countrymen in the true path Like Theo bald Wolfe Tone he had the courage of his convictions The Lord Mayor said It was his duty tow as Chief Magistrate of the city to ask them to pass the vote of thanks which was so ably proposed and seconded to Mr John OLeary for the action he had taken during the past year in for warding the movement for the erection of a statue to one of Irelands greatest sons Right worthily was he placed ii- the in position he occupied today because like his predecessor the true Irishman Wolfe Tone he was a patriot who had suffered for his country He therefore had the greatest pleasure and was prou to be in the position of doing so in askin them to respond to the vote with a hearty cheer They should from this day for ward read the life of Wolfe Tone andl when they did they would learn a lessonl that would teach them to bury their dif ferences whatever they might be and t unite as one man and to have but on principle the principle of the independ ence of their native land He hoped thatl with the laying of the foundation stone of the statue of the great patriot Tone there would also be laid every difference between Irishmen and that their mem bers would unite as one man and demand from the English Parliament the restitu tion of their just rights If they did the time was but short when they wouldi again stand on that platform to celebrat- In a victorious manner the cause Wolfe Tone died for and John OLeary sufferedi for He asked them again to give three cheers for John OLeary Mr John OLeary in responding said1 he was very proud indeed to be there and was still prouder when he saw how the vote of thanks had been proposedI and seconded and put by the Lord Mayor to the meeting and the unanimous way it had been received by that large assembly He hoped that henceforward they would have peace among all Irishmen Mr Rooney of the Gaelic Leage here delivered an address in Irish which ter minated the days proceedings At night the Lord Mayor gave a dinner iin honor of the American French another d foreign delegates to the demonstra tion The Lord Mayor provided The Lord Mayor iaproposlng Ireland a Nation expressed his satisfaction at being in the position a Chief Magistrate of Dublin of being able to welcome their exiled brethren front all lahda Redidi not know wbt might happen ln the itcpr J i t v i future but he knew that the proceedings showed that the Irishmen had not lost their nationality After what they had witnessed nothing could conceal front the world that it was their unanimous wish to govern themselves Mr John OLeary who was received 1 withapplause in responding said that in speaking of Ireland n nation they meant Ireland under its own laws and not those of England To him it was a matter of indifference whether Ireland a nation meant Ireland under a republic a limited monarchy or an absolute monarchy He was above all things an Irish National ist and he wanted to get as much sepa ration from England as possible He was not an altogether impracticable man still he could not conceive of any recon ciliation between Ireland and nglandI short of the repeal of the Union He had however no difficulty iu responding to this toast He wanted Ireland ana ton in the fullest sense possible if possi ble but he wanted it at least in the sense of a selfgoverned nation as it was beroreI unionMr Redmond M P in propos ing Memory of the Dead said My Lord Mayor ladies and gentlemen I sup pose no more difficult task was ever cast upon any man than to propose this toast difficult in this sense not that it is not I a toast full of inspiration for every Irish man but it is a toast to which full justice can not be done On an occasion such as this indeed we would be wanting in 1 our duty if this toast were not honored But I confess to you that when I was 1 asked first a few moments ago to propose this toast I ventured humbly to make the 1 suggestion that the toast ought to be proposed i without any speech and ought to be drunk in silence However other views have prevailed and the duty has been cast upon me of proposing this toast tiThe Memory of the Dead What I does it mean It means not merely the memory ofthose who died in 98 whom we are celebrating but it means the memory of every Irishman great or humble who during the centuries that have passed has died in defense of Ireland l Gentlemen in the public life of Ireland 1 today we often hear men repining and grumbling at the delays and difficulties and disappointments that they have to 1 endure and the sacrifices that they have 1 to make If they knew anything of the past history of Irelandif they knew any thing of the past history of their own forefathers they ought to be ashamed to complain of any dangers or difficulties or sacrifices that they may be compelled to make How easy it is for us to champion the cause of Ireland how pleasant and full of honor and credit But consider what it was a hundred years ago Whyitis impossible for us living in these times of comparative liberty to realize the lot which our forefathers had to face iu 08 Our forefathers had to tuke the fieldwhen there was but little chance of success They took the field because they were impelled by a desire to make an effort for Irish liberty and although in the vulgar acceptation of the word they failed yet we know in our hearts that they did not fail because the spirit that they lmyepegueathecLtouaJivetli today and whether it comes iu our day or whether we will have to wait for an other generation we are convinced in out hearts that the day must inevitably come when the triumph of Irish liberty will be assured Gentlemen I was par ticularly interested in the spoech which fell from perhaps the one man in this room who in his own person represents the traditions of 98 He spoke to you of Ireland a nation and he told youwhat he meant by it and I think that every man who heard him agreed with his defi nition When people speak of Ireland a nationwhen we toast Ireland a nation we do not mean that we desire Ireland to become a nation because all say that she Is and always was a nation What is the meaning ora nation Ireland by geo graphical position by race by national characteristics is an isolated and distinct country so she has been all through and nothing that can be done by English laws or English power can deprive Ire land of her attribute of nation When we toast Ireland a nation what w mean is not only that she shall become aI nation because she is one already but what we mean is that the day will come when her separate and distinct national ity and nationhood will come to be recog AndI theghistory that Ireland has so long as Irish men are able to look back to the sacrificesi and sufferings of their motherland sol long will it be impossible for them to abandon the high ideals of the nation Thoindeede a solemn one It recalls to us glorious memories connected with our history Other nations which have prospered andI been powerful in the plentitude of their power toast their victorious ancestors but I doubt if they ever can with the same feeling of tenderness and of dovo tion recall the successes of their forefathers as we can recall the defeats andI the sufferings of ours aeit runs But makes them more painfully dear to her sons So it is in Ireland I believe that the feeling of the Irish people for their pas 1and their martyred dead is fuller andI keener by reason of the fact that those i men suffered and failed in the cause an were not victorious Gentlemen this toast indeed needs no words from me and in conclusion in giving it to you all I will say is this So long as the memory of the dead holds a place in the hearts of Irishmen so long the cause of Irish na tionality will live Let us remember off our forefathers They rose in dark and evil days to rightt their native land They kindled there a living blaze that nothing can withstand Alas that might can conquer right thei spirits passed away But true men like you men

him the equal of Fitzsimmons Corbett or Peter Maheri but none of the trio seems to hanker for a go with him says Macon in his letter to the Cincinnati Enquirer All of them have had a trial of him and he seems to have left a bad taste in their mouths Sharkey is likely to prove a troublesome customer this winter In the event of Corbett retiring Fitzsimmons would most likely be se lected to take his place as McCoys opponent Though I think Bob would defeat him I think McCoy would fare better at his hands than he would with Corbett were Jim in proper condition Bob is a harder hitter than Corbett and might knock McCoy out quicker but he is not nearly so skillful as Jim and not by 10 percent as speedy To be outpointed by Corbett would be a great blow at Mc Coys cleverness while to be knocked out by Fitz would only be what ninetenths of the world would expect A match on the tapis which is sure to excite fistic curiosity is the one between Spike Sul livan the clever Corkonian and Joe Wal

bodice the appear ance of a short basque Black velvet buttons are the latest Parisian idea for pique coats in white cream or biscuit color Indeed French dressmaker never fails to add black satin or black velvet in one way or another as a finishing touch to a costume in these soft tints Many have pronounced the seamless skirt an extreme notion but tailors say not so and are using the design for severe gowns One style of this skirt fastens down the center of the back with a close row of buttons while the other fastens at the left side of the frontISonic of the pretty fans described by the New York Herald must have very fanciful shapes Some of them have wings or parts of birds mounted on palmleaf fans TheseJiir4s Sre supposed t repared and mounted by tli Ersithemselves J This is the tlmofyear to have furs renovated and remodeled It is said that the fashion in fur will be quite distinctive this coming winter and decidedly differ ent from those of years past Rumor says that the capes will be made in the popular shawl fashion and finished off with shaped circular frills Black and white is as popular a combi nation as ever and black gowns relieved with white and sparkling with jet are completed by fluffy net or feather boas Indeed white may be called the univer sal color for the trying gray heliotrope and wood shades are all rendered becom ing by the use of white collars yokes and vests A method much employed in trimming autumn foulards is to carry frills of inch wide ribbon round the silk to suggest a deep flounce and its heading and to sup plement a yoke collar high stock epau lets and cuffs with two rows of frills in the same fashion Foulards are now made with tight backs showing few seams but the front is always full A patriotic fan was made of the na tional colors in chiffon with the photograph of one of our favorite heroes in the center One evening fan was of white chiffon over white silk with a cluster of field flowers to hide where the material was drawn in and another shaped like a rose leaf had pink chiffon over white silk with roses and ribbons A new corset designed solely for comfort is made of a light supple material and boned with alternate straps of elas negligee line is a straightbusked corset with cam exquisitelyj preUy rounded effect so noticeable in the Parisian womans figure Tissue paper which comes in such beautiful shades is a very good substi tute for the chiffon and silk that every one may not have ready to hand The uses of that paper are numberless It is recommended as the best thing to be taken when packing and for stuffing out bows sleeves etc and making them look as good as new being taken out free of creases thus doing away with the necessity and worry of a hot iron ona hot day to smooth out crushed and mussed delicate summer wear publishedthe following Perfumes are being put up in tablet form for the sake of con vcnienceand one of these hidden in glove coiffure or knot of ribbon will diffuse a
