formal challenge of Sir Thomas Lipton for the Americas Cup on behalff of his ninetyfoot cutter Shamrock which was issued through the Royal Ulster r Yacht Club was duly signed representatives of the Irish club the members of the committee affixing thief names to the document shortly after 5 delioclockwas cheerfully accepted by the New York Yacht Club whose representatives also placed their names to the articles off agreement and conditions With the arrival in this country of the quartet of yachtsmen from the Royal Ulster Yacht Club bearers of Sir Thomas Liptons challenge of the Americas Cup interest in the sport which has received little impetus during the past season iis revivingand yachtsmen arc looking forward to a red letter year in 1899 The challenger is known to some extent iin this country and in a vague way the reputation of the shipyard of Harland Wolff has spread to these shores Little however has been written of Sir Thomas associates in the Royal Ulster Club The names of Sharman Crawford McGildowner and Kelly are well known in Irish history as is also that of Lord Dufferin Commodore of the club through which the challenge is issued Sir Thomas Lipton is proud of the land of his fathers The hard times in Ireland drove his parents out to see work and shelter in the city of Glasgow iu which he was born but the accident of ibirth has never caused him to a n bther t1i tI1tftI man T There are thousonds besides of Glasgow Irish the offspring of famine days but the strip of sea between the Scotch and Irish coasts does not separate their hearts from tine old land Wealth and honors have not rendered Sir Thomas any less sterling than plain Tom Lipton and the genuineness of his character iis made clear when turning homeward he raises up Ireland to challenge for the Americas Cup The shipyard in which the Shamrock is to be built takes rank with the greatest in the world For centuries Ireland knew not trade and no merchandise was imported or exported in Irishbuilt ships One hundred and sixteen years ago these restrictions were removed aud England in difficulty in response to the demand of Henry Grattan and the volunteers granted free trade or rather the right to trade But what with famines and insurrections nothing on a large scale was attempted in shipbuilding for over half a century Yards were established in various parts of the country but the first to really attract general attention and attain more than local prominence was that of Harland Wolff Sites with deeper water and better natural facilities in every sense of the word could be had iii other cities but exorbitant prices were asked and eventually the workshops were erected on the strip of land known aa the Queens Island on the County Down side of the city of Belfast then a town struggling gallantly out of its swaddling clothes The island was orig inally little better than a mud heapand was known as Dargans Island but local enterprise connected it with the main land and on it was erected one of those crystal palaces a craze for which existed in the early years of Queen Victorias reign The young Queen was received in this palace on her first and last visit to Ireland some fortyeight years ago and in commemoration of this the island and its connecting filledin ground was renamed the Queens Island Since the opening of the shipyard more ground has been reclaimed from the River Lagan until now the great yards cover many acres and give employment to upward of 0000 men The finest graving docks in the world have been built at the island and in the workshops are fashioned everything that goes to constitute a modern steamship from the simplest rivet to the most complex piece of machinery There have been turned out all of the magnificent fleet of the White Star line including such ocean flyers as the Majestic and the Teutonic Just now the Oceanic is being built there and she It is promised will be the larg est ship that sails the seas At the Queens Island are also built the mag nificently luxurious ships of the Penin sular and Oriental Steamship Company Harland Wolff have besides added some of its finest vessels Jo the British juvy Harland was several times Mayor of Belfast and wu rewarded with a baronetcy for the style In which he received their Royal ii1RbneweathePrince and Prince of Walea during hi term of office In the early eighties He was at first offered a knighthood foe hit coatterica tin thatr a j occasion but he declined the honor an exhibition of pride and pluck f vhicji he was heartily applauded A baronetcy was then offered and accepted Sir Edward Harland represented the North division of the city in Parliament He died a few years since in his country home county Leitrim In which he was possessedof landed estates The present head of the firm is exLord May PirrieThe great firm has not hitherto gone in for yacht building bnt such is its record capabilities and possibilities that the defenders may look well to the laurelsThe

a prominent member of the Jesuit wagea zine called the Irish Monthly Charles legrcareer as a police court attorney in Bel fast but soon tired of that limited field The bar attracted him but the Irish bar at that time particularly the northern circuit in which he would have to seek fortune and fame was not quite tempting enough for his ambitions He accord- Ingly was called to the English bar of which he became a shining light He allied himself to the Liberal part and followed the fortunes of Gladstone He sat in Parliament for County Louth until1 defeated by a Parnellite candidate Russell at this time Sir Charles has held1 office under Gladstone When lithe Grand Old Man became converted to Home Rule Sir Cliarle- was one of the foremost champions o the cause and he brilliantly defended Parnell in his famous issue with the London Times Sir Charles was further rewarded for his loyalty to the English Liberal party by his elevation to the Lord Chief Justiceship When he came to select his title he remembered his Iris old home in Ireland and became Lord Killowen His son Sir Thomas Liptons envoy practices in London a kan attorney He it was who conducted the defense of Edward J Ivory

London iIn the case thought differently and th prosecution was suddenly abandoned The representatives of Sir Thomas Lipton who arrived on the Britannic Friday are SharmanCrawford Hugh Kelly and Hugh McGildowney The name of Slrarman Crawford is a magic one in Ireland especially in the Ul ster province First among the cham pions of the Irish tenant farmers was the grandfather of the present bearer of the honored name At a time when according even to the English Solicitor General the houses of the tenantry wer such as the lower animals would no endure when they had neither right nor title to the soil which they cultivated amI improved Sharman Crawford fought their battle In 1835 he introduced iin the British Parliament bills for the im provement of their condition but only to meet defeat Year after year from his seat in Parliament he pleaded their cause but in vailL until in 1840 and 1847 a million and a half of the Irish peasantry died of hunger on the roadsides Sbar manCrawford was the soul of the movement and backed by the sturdy Presby terian farmers of Ulster lIe waged a fierce battle against the landlords andI their friends The fight waged by SharmanCrawford although a losing one until he was laid in the grave was crowned with victory in the end His son who bore his name and who is still1 living took up the standard where his father dropped it and carried on the bat tle in and out of Parliament The Ten ant Right Association paved the way for the Land League and concessions ofI which the elder Crawford never even dreamedThe present SharmanCrawford has taken no part in polities preferring to devote himself to sports and to the enjoy ment of his beautiful home at Crawfords Burn overlooking Belfast Lough On his property is situated the Royal Ulster Club house Nearby is the charming sea side place Bangor and the seat of Commodore of the yacht club the of Dufferin Lord Dufferin was until1 recently British Ambassador to France and there is no abler man in the entire

that he was getting undue praise says the New York World My doctor has forbidden me to talk much he said in well modulated tones but do clear up the mistake about my being a wonder and all that I did not graduate at Rugby but at Bedford Schoolwhich does not rank as high as Rugby I was born in Bedford Ireland not in England I have served in the Buckinghamshire Yepmanry as stated and Ive knocked around the world too When did you feel happiest Captain at the surrender of Santiago or when you captured San Juan I felt no exaltatation at the downfall of Santiago We all expected that but I must say I was disappointed at the aneofficer to criticise his superiors They knew many things I did not If they could save their men and get Santiago too of course it was right to do it but itfn hteouttheiyheelsof anJUa b-I wouldrKaveT16staT good many that- struethe Captain pausedand sighed but the fighting blood still bubbled in his veins and he had to addstill wed a whipped em out of their boots He smiled and moved his hands a little nervouslyThen you felt exultant at the criti cal moment at San Juan Well I felt pretty happy Just how did the regiment go into action that day Lend me a pencil and Ill try to show you In the early morning we were at Balloon Forks as tine places were called where the balloon came down so full of holes The main road leading to San Juan and the hills all around it started from there but we were on a side path which led obliquely to the stream at the foot of the hill The regiment was placed so illustrating on the diagram the Third Battalion Major Kecks first out on the road beyond them the Second battalion and further in front the First battalion These were nearest the ene mys firing line They were ordered to lie and get what protection they could in the underbrush etc Where were the regulars I was about to explain that they came up behind and pushed along At this time I supposed they were to keep to the roadand we were to be sent out on the flank to hold the line of the creek There came an opening and I went out on this pointThe men of my company pushed right along and forded the creek which was up to their necks From the creek up to the main blockhouse was an open space which the Spaniards just swept with volleys We clambered along to ward the eminence on which the fort stood Adjt Tarrian of the Twenty fourth infantry one of the colored regi ments a splendid officer and man came up and said Where are you going I I replied Up the hill Good said he Youre the kind we want So along with the regulars Company F went up Then you had a full company of volunteers alongside the regulars Yes and let me tell you they fought well The volunteers did as well as the regulars at that stage Just then along came Gen Hawkins Seeing my cap he said Who are you I replied Company F of the Seventy first1 Any others he asked Not that I know of I answered You see at such a juncture formations get broken up and commands sepa rated So he continued Very well re main with the Twentyfourth and fall backand rest You understand fresh troops were coming up and we were pret ty tired so they wanted us to retire in favor of the fresh men We went down the slope to this point with the regulars Then seeing a battery MajorImanaged to get to the frontIL wan really wonderfull how they did it toowent wasLbhia audlhe Captain aadUd a he pic tured tJM accoe 1IiLf- ci t Keck was leading his men along su perbly quietly too He seemed to take everything easily didnt he- IWell I believe the Major says men of muse taches etc didnt suffer as much as the rest said the Captain with a faint laugh as he recollected his own Celtic appearance but light and dark seemed to get it alike Why the Cubans themselves knocked under as easily as the white menAnd the rain Oh that was wonderful I especially remember one night It was July 10 and a blacker night I never saw Really you could feel the darkness If a man was as near as you Ire you never could tell it till a flash of lightning came It was a terribly heavy rain We were in the trenches It was as bad for those indents in the ditches We had it arranged so that we could turn about That is if two companies were in the trenches at one spot one officer would watch for both but I concluded Id better be right there in case anything turned up so I dug a shelf for myself lilt is this way One side of the trench slopesthe outer side On the inside one wall is straight the other has a step so men can get up and see to shoot over the parapet On the straight side I dug out a shaft I remember it well for it took me a good two hours to do it I had two pouches one good one and a rubber cape so I fixed things to keep me dry one under me and one over I had it fixed beautifully with a little drain around it aud all I must have been there about one hour when I was literally washed out It was inky black and as I stumbled on to my feet I grabbed somebody and said Whos that He answered Golds borough thats the Captain of Company bIIve come to see how you were Of course there was no use trying to keep dry and sleep was out of the ques tion So we stood around together wait Ing for daylight Didnt you fear a night attack Well there was danger of that for they knew the ground and we didnt and we might easily have begun shooting our own men Tine sentries couldonly see when there was a flash of lightning Then they would throw their eyes about and see if anything was going on Was the rain told Yes very it seemed to us and so heavy We lined our men up and sent down to the hospital tent and got a bottle of quinine We stood them up and made em take their medicine one after an other It was all we had and so quinine was givenjem for everything mm 4L trifcni I was often hungry and tired and thirsty as everybody was We had only hard tack and green coffee and no way to pre pare that Then we ran short of rations and the anxiety the men were changed about from trench to trench to reform the line and reorganize commands and thats very tryingall told upon the men and fever was planted in their systems How did you first get separated from your regiment Some militia officers would stay in one spot till ordered out if their very last man was shot Now I have a whole some disregard for all that sometimes I believe times come when youve got to disobey or to anticipate orders and youll win honor and credit for doi gso Dis cipline and obedience are great things but not to be followed tinder all circum stances When you were ordered to retire from the crest of the heighth with the regu lars had the firing become less steady No they kept clearing that slope with volleys right along Thats why the unprotected battery over on the right which we went to support had to hurry to get away I cant collect my thoughts just now but I think it was Battery K of the Fourth artillery They were stripped for hot workrevolvers belts everything was on the ground around them I remember picking up one officers revolver and returning it to him the next dayThe Captain was full of his subject and forgetting his physicians orders sat upright and spoke earnestly but his watchful wife here stepped in and begged him to rest lIe sunk back and then reiterated his first remark about not wanting praise not due him I appre ciate all the good words that have been spoken and enjoy them but dont give me credit where it isnt mine BRIGHT PROSPECTS A meeting of the tenants on the Pur don estate at OGonnelloe was held on Wednesday Rev P Glynn in the chair The reverend chairman said that while the most friendly

the Laboring Men to Arlseand Fight the Trusts To Succeed Labor Must Fight Capital With Capital or With Anarchy- or Revolutiona BRAINS AND MONEY ARE NEEDED Here is a Standard Oil millionaire who says the laboring class should unite and prepare themselves for mighty conflict with capital who openly denounces 1 monopoly as tyranny and monopolists as thieves and robbers who asserts and believes that labor fails to get its just rights and who says the time must come when labor shall be emancipated and who predicts a revolution The man who makes these astonishing statements is himself a member of the Standard Trust and a stockholder in it He is Charles Russell Burke a decend ant of Edmund Burke the great Com moner of England He was Secretary of the famous Eagle Oil Company before it was swallowed up by Mr John D Rocke fellers great octopus and has ever since held an important place in the Standard being an expert on the oil trade His father Russell W Burke was the greatest handler of petroleum in the world prior to the organization of the great trust by Rockefeller into which he was drawn with most of the other dealers inAmericaHe the Empire the Queens County and several other oil refining plants and did a heavy business in the export as well as in the domestic trade But the octopus took him in and its ten tacles have held all his interests fast ever since that day y Charles

Benson founder of the beautiful town of Bensonhurst L I In his novel called Thistle Sifters the advance sheets of which the SundayaJournal has just received from F Tenny son Neely Mr Burke says all this and a w great deal more The novel itself is a light and flimsy affair the characters being in the main a weak and detestable crew But the r story is interesting and the pointed lean x it conveys to the men who produce nil the wealth in the world and who reap so little of the fruit of their toil is a suf ficient excuse for the medium chosen by the author This is Mr Burkes language to Ameri canlaborYou being oppressed to the verge ofslavery by your masters the control lers of the great monopolistic corpora tious There is no help for you un less you take these monopolies into your own hands To do this you must have both brains and money You must adopt their methods to some extent If you have the money you can buy the brains as the big corpora tions are now doing I propose a plan by which you can acquire all the money you needIt is a business plan It is based on the very principles which have made possible the vast accumulations of capital which now threaten to enslave mankind You must make sacrifices to achieve it you must make up your mind to wait patiently to save to deny yourselves to trust those whom you chose to execute your high purpose and to be faithful unto death till the goal iis attained You must remember that all the capital in the world is produced by your own toil Every dollar that is controlled and used against you by the monopolists every dollar that has been employed in the building of railroads and telegraphs in the development of mines and oil fields and in bringing to the yielding point all the great natural resources of j the country is the direct t your toil or the toil of men who liketyou received only a pittance for their f work while all the vast profits have gone into the pockets of manipulators and schemersIn present broken and

that memorable occasion I regret that it will not he in my power to be present I assume indeed that the in vitation has been sent to me mainly as a matter of personal kindness for it is I think very generally known in Dublin at I have always acted upon the princi pie of not attending any meeting or as semblage of a political character however strongly I might sympathize with the purpose for which it was held I can not therefore be with you on Monday but I feel it as a privation that I thus lose the pleasure of witnessing the spectable now so rare in Ireland of so differingir policy for the accomplishment of one great pur pose of national interest as to which they are all agreed I venture to express the hope that the spirit of unity that has thus been evoked may not be allowed to pass away with next Mondays ceremonial May it endure until it leads to the estab lishment of an effective unity of purpose and of action among all who are solicitous for the establishment ofa system of genuine legislative independence for IrelandThe of Irish public affairs in the hundred years that have passed since 98 has served to make more and more evi dent from year to year the truth so far as

of the Civilized World The Capitol anti Other Public Buildings Burned by Admiral Cockburn Value of Property Destroyed at Washington Aggregated 2000000 EXULTATION OF THE LONDON TIMES From the Irish World The only case of vandalism on record in the history of the world is to be found in Englands doings in America and in the columns of Englands chief news paper the London Times it stands as a loudly applauded splendid achieve ment The Encyclopaedia Britannica an English publication acquits the Vandals of the methods long associated with their name in the following language There does not seem to be in the story of the capture of Rome by the Vandals any justification of the charge of the destruc tion of public buildings which is implied in the word vandalism This same publication boils down the whole history of the Cockburn barbarism to one sentenace as follows In 1814 during the second war with Great Britain it Washington was captured by the British troops and the Capitol together with most of the other public buildings was burnedIPerhaps the writer was ashamed to go into particulars yet even in the litlleI he writes there is disgrace enough Our war of 1812 was subsequently a continuation of the fight for American in dependence When the first British sol dier quitted the soil of America in 1783 the freedom of the new nation was an accomplished fact but it was not yet inI the full sense an independent nation Benjamin Franklin when a fellow country man remarked that the war for independ ence was successfully closed replied Say rather that the war of the revolu tion The war for independence is yet to be fought Franklin knew that England had not given up hope forever of reestablishing her power here It was with grudging that George IIII and the Parliament of England recognized the fact that they had been beatenI Though compelled to acknowledge defeat and Americas rank as a nation they still insisted on claiming Once a Brit iish subject alwa a a Drittsh subject ft n the strength of this doctrine a proc lamation was issued by the British Gov ernment giving authority to the commanders of British war vessels to press into the service Britishborn citizens wher ever found In the course pf fifteen years says Lossing thousands of native Americans had thus been made to serve a master England whom they detested The United States Government frequently remonstrated against these outrages and demanded their discontinuance but with out effect No arguments no remon strances no appeals to justice could in duce the British Government to relin quish so great an advantage and so flagrant and frequent were these outrages towards the close of 1805 that in the me morials presented to Congress on the subject of British depredations upon American commerce the impressment of seamen was a prominent topic The burning of Washington was not the only act of vandalism performed by England In February 1813 an English squadron appeared in the Delaware Bay which destroyed many vessels On the 10th Lewiston was bombarded because the inhabitants refused to supply the enemy with fresh provisions It was says Spencer in the Chesapeake principally that this discreditable species of warfare was carried on by the British ships Cockburn was in commandand he rendered his name and character notorious on account of the numerous piratical incursions in which he indulged the houses he robbed the families he plundered the wanton destruction of property he authorized and the shameful insults and injuries he inflicted upon defenseless women and children Frencb own Md was attacked and plundered on April 29 On this occasion Cockburn burned and plundered the Village to the amount of 5000 besides some ships that were in the harbor Havre de Grace was the marauding knights next object of visitation On May 3 the English ships assailed the town by rockets which set the houses on tfire followed by destructive bombshells and while the panic and fire were raging the enemy landed Finally the English burned and plundered the town and sunk many vessels The civilizers1 next sailed up the Sassafras river burning and plunderirg Havre de Grace was 60000 poorer when they left than when they came Georgetown and Frederickstown a few days later received visits from Admiral Cockburn and were deprived of considerable property These exploits says Spencer were worthy of pirates and savages To continue Cockburns vandalism would only be a repetition of the forego lag In Spencers history there is one passage that is well worth quoting It is as follows Great Britain was angry and almost furious Spencer has reference to the victories of the brave IrishAmerican On Croghan at Port Stephenson Perry 9iLake Erie and that of Benjamin liar rUoa at Thames and the war hence forth prow ed to be une of savage inroads and rmthleM destruction NO inter words were ever penned England had on abuiKUnoe of vfalpt and two unoccu i pied and she determined to strike a blow which should tell with tremendous effect and compel America to sue for peace at any terms President Madison and his Cabinet began to fortify the national capital fearing lest Cockburn would carry out his threat of the previous year to invade Washington- On August 10 twentyone sail arrived in Chesapeake Bay and joined Cock burns squadron One division was sent up the Potomac for the purpose of opening the way to the city of Washington the main body ascended the Pat uxent After a victory from a small body of Americans at Bladenburgh on the afternoon of the 24th the English set out for Washington- At 8 oclock in the evening Cockburn entered Washington which then contained about 900 buildings He came says Lossing to destroy the public property there As they advanced solitary musket ball the citizens of the city having fled at the approach of the fire fiends was fired from behind a house which killed the horse uf Gen Ross The house was immediately as saulted and the work of vandalism corn menced in earnest The same fate awaited the materials in the office of the National Intelligencer the Government organ whose strictures on the brutality of Cockburn had filled that marauder with anger Cockburn was about to apply the torch to this building when he was prevailed upon by some women not to do so as it would endanger their dwellings Cockburn desisted from this but he caused all the type and other printing materials to be thrown into the street the printing presses to be destroyedand the library containing many rare works to be burned Cockburn assisted in this work with his own hands The invaders followed the lead of their Admiral and rushed toward the Capitol This imposing style standing upon the brow of a hill overlooking the city in every direction was even at that early period of its construction a building of unusual magnificence Discharging their firearms at the windows the soldiers burst in the doors and with a shout of triumph carried their leader to the Speakers chair from which with mock gravity he put the question Shall this harbor of the yankee Democracy be burned A yell of affirmation rang through the hall and without further preliminaries papers and combustibles were piled under the desks andseton fire Now thoroughly aroused to their work of plunder a howling crowd of the des perate marauders hurried to the White House in the hope perchance of capturing the President and his wife Finding the house locked and deserted they battered down the doors and consoled themselves for the loss of their distinguished captives by a ruthless destruction of the furniture they raided the larder and regaled them selves with a hastily prepaired feast in the State diningroom Then destroy ing the remaining provisions and ran sacking the place from garret to base ment breaking and mutilating whatever UicycouldrtadU lay AView Aiawfarfettj they concluded their visit by setting fire to the home of the President Meanwhile the torch had been applied to other public buildings besides several business establishments and private resi dences including one formerly owned by George Washington To capture the stores in the navyyard and arsenal was one of Admiral Cockburns chiefobjects but his plan was forestalled by Commo dore Timgey the commaudent of the navyyard who in accordance with in structions previously received from the department set fire to all the magazines storehouses and shipping as soon as he was assured of the presence of the enemy in the city- Fanned by the gust of a storm the fires that had been kindled in all directions burned and spread with increasing fury lighting up the streets with a glare more brilliant than that of day and revealing in ghastly lurid distinctness the forms of the marauders reveling amid their horrible work of devastation Higher and higher leaped the angry flames growing ever greater and fiercer reaching out farther and ever farther until the whole city was wrapped in a sea of flame whose mighty glow illumined the firmament with a light that startled the inhabitants of Baltimore more than forty miles away Amid the crash of walls and the fierce roar of flames burst ing shells hurled their deathdealing fragments in every directiou while ignit ing powder magazines rent the air with explosions shattering citizens houses and shaking the city to its foundation The scene that met the gaze of the citi zen as they turned in their flight to look back upon the doom that had overtaken their homes was a fitting climax to the terrible drama of that momentous day Great waves of flame rolled and surged over the city heaving and tossing in tempestuous fury and lapping the black vault of heaven as though the very air were afire To this sublime horror of the earth were added the thunders and light nings of the heavens that broke forth in unusual Violence As though infected with the evil spirit of destruction the elements raged with increasing fierceness until the next day when a terrific hurri cane completed the ruin that the flames had left unfinished Overawed at the terrible devastation wrought by their hands and the forces of nature the British stole silently forth from the city on the night of August 25 and beat a hasty retreat to their ships Slowly and mournfully the hopeless in habitants returned to their desolate homes The value of the entire amount of property destroyed at Washington was estimated at over 2000000 The Government and Parliament of England warmly approved of Cockburns act When the news reached England guns were fired from the Tower of Lon don in joyful celebration of the barbarity Parliament unanimously voted thanks to Cockburn and to Gen Ron leis colleague in the work of destruction Parliament alto decreed that atLie death a monument should be erected to nROM in West Bihwter Abbey the burial place of men to whom England 9f8to pay extra ordinary honor sad the title VSOM of o o h lJ kJ i l- i w j Blandensburgh was decreed to the Genera and his heirs forever Blandens burgh a few miles outside of Washington being the place where the battle was fought previous to the raid of Ross upon the capital and the burning of the public buildings and public records there of in estimable value The London Times exulted over the burning of Washington The London Times says Lossing in his Field Book then as now the exponent of the prin ciples of the ruling classes in England and the bitter foe of the American people gloried over the destruction of the public buildings and the expulsion of the Presi dent and Cabinet from the capital and indulged in exulting prophecies of the speedy disappearance of the great Republic of the West That illorganized as sociation the American Union said the Times is on the eve of dissolution and the world is speedily to be delivered of the mischievous example of the ex istence of a government founded on demo ocratic rebellion In long after years in 1853 when Cockburn died the Times lauded him chiefly for his marauding exploits in this country and his splendid achievement in firing our national capital Admiral Cockburn says the English Encyclopedia Britannica for his prominent part in the capture of Wash ington on his return to England in 1815 received the Order of the Bath three years latter he received the Grand Cross of his order and was made a Lord of the Admiralty and in 1818 was returned to Parliament for Portsmouth In 1810 betas made Vice Admiral and Admiral in 1837 in 1811 became Senior Naval Lord Thus was the destroyer of our national capital loaded with honors instead of obloquy for his crime against civilization A BOYS KINO My papa hes the bestest man Whatever lived I bet And I aint never seen no one As smart as he is yet Why he knows everythingalmost But mamma says that he Aint never been the President And that surprises me And often papa talks about How he must work away Hes got to toil for other folks And do what others say And thats the thing that bothers me When hes so good and great He ought I think at least to be The Govnor of the State He knows the names of lots of stars And he knows all the trees And he can tell the different kinds Of all the birds he sees And he can multiply and add And figure in his head They might have been some smarter men But I bet you they are dead Once when he thought I wasnt near He talked to mamma then Andtold her how he hates tobe Slav of tlir men And how he wished that he was rich For her and meandI Dont know what made me do it but- I had to go and cryl And so when I sat on his knee I ast lilniis it true That youre a slave and have to toil When others tell you to You are so big and good andwise You surely ought to be The President instead of just A slave it seems to me And then the tears come in liis

officials whose paths are now strewn with roses sat in the cafe of an uptown Broadway hotel one even ing last week and talked of the old days when they were young in the police busi ness Every man in the group was an oldtimer and all had interesting anec dotes to tell and interesting experiences to relate says a writer in the New York Sun Police Captain James K Price was one of the party Capt Price is now in charge of the Tenderloin a district which he knows thoroughly When Alec Williams held sway there Price was his righthand man The Story he related had to do with that time In all my time on the police force and incidentally thenine months I spent off of it began Price with a grin I never met or knew a more interesting policeman than Ginger Reilly He was in the Tenderloin when Williams was there Reilly has a good old Irish Chris tian name but the boys dubbed him Ginger and the name has stuck to him sinceHe must have ben hot stuff some oneejaculatedHe stuff continued the nar rator An Irishman by birth he was as profane and as religious a man as I knew in the business Reillys profanity was a source of wonder to the men in his platoon The boys would tease him just to hear him swear He didnt mean to be profane but it seemed to come natural to him and he couldnt stop it Thats the reason he was dubbed Ginger If anyone had a practical joke to spring Reilly was the man who had to standthe brunt of it And there were a good many practical jokers quartered in the Thir tiethstreet stationhouse when Reilly wasthereFor post Reilly had Madison avenue from Twentythird to Twentyseventh street The first year Barnum showed in Madison Square Garden the show hadnt been running a week when a rumor was afloat t luJJinfeJ nnalnndo had escaped from the circus It was only a rumor of course and probably originated in the brain of the circus press agent Anyway it was seized by a couple of Reillys fellow policemen as a tip for a good practical joke on the Irishman I was a roundsman then and it was my duty to see that Reilly stuck to his post The proposed joke was unfolded to me and I agreed to help play it One of the jokers bought a dozen or more yards of a darkcolored material and had it sewed in circular joints on the stovepipe plan When the cloth joints were put together they measured about fifteen feet One end tapered and on the other was fast ened an immense snakes head which was procured from a theatrical costumer This makeshift snake was kept hidden for a couple of nights in a Fourthavenue grocery store near Madison Square Gar den The grocer was well supplied with chaff and sawdust of fvhich he agreed to let us have all we wanted With the chaff and sawdust we were going to stuff our clothmade anaconda Reilly was to be the victim andwe left no stone unturned to give him a good scare A couple of nights before the trick was sprung the jokers talked in awi d tones about the anaconda that es- Caped from the circus Reilly was always an interested listener and the boys got him worked up in great shape He was especially interested as Madison Square Garden from where the anaconda was alleged to have escaped was on his post The night the joke was to be played Reilly didnt go on post until 12 oclock When the midnight platoon turned out the Sergeant on duty read the following general alarm at my request CI Escaped from Barnums Greatest Show on Earth now being held in Madi son Square Garden a coppercolored anaconda fifteen feet long and as thick as a mans leg The anaconda is a man strangler and very dangerous If seen in the street notify the circus at once The men went to their posts Reilly relieved his side partner and was doing as usual a good straight tour The cloth made anaconda was in the Fourthavenue grocery rapidly being filled with chaff and sawdust When the job was finished it was quite a respectable serpent for one of its kind The papermade jaws were far apart showing a owingred within At 2 a m Reilly was sighted on the west side of Madison avenue at Twentythird street The snake was carried into Twentysixth street and placed in the gutter near the northeast corner A stout piece of twine was attached to the body near the head The twine reached from the improvised snake halfway across Madison Square Park where that end of it was manipulated by myself standing behind an immense tree I waste fur nish the snakes motive power when Reilly hove in sight I saw him coming up the avenue leisurely swinging his club Unaware of danger or of practical jokers he approached the southwest corner of Twentysixth street the serpent was already moving at a god pace Reilly had stepped into thee madway when he heard the rushing Then he saw the open Jgwed reptile awklog directly for him jjSte turned pllk tpulYelled 1 1 c 0 4 t f I IIIoly mother preserve me Theres that sea serpint I He turned with a whoop and a string of profanity and started like a lightning bolt down the avenue I cut across the park to Broadway aryl ran to Twenty third street I started east on a walk Running like wild toward me was Reilly He was really scared 11 Rounds he yelled I saw Itt I saw it An if I didnt run the sarpint would have made me poor childer orphuns Youve been drinking Reilly and Im afraid Ill have to report you for be ing off post1 The man tint says Im drunk is a liar and I can whip him yelled Reilly I saw that damn snake or whatever you call im I tell you lip made for me and whin I ran he crawled into Madison Square Park Och thita poor hums thats asleep on thim benches Sure its the corpses theyll be when that laddybuck gets through wid them The upshot of it was I went back with Reilly but I knew we would find every thing peaceful There wasnt any sign ofa snake To Reillys great chagrin the sleepers on the park benches when awakened avowed they had seen no snake and laughed at Reilly when heI solemnly said he had been pursued by one I left Reilly on the post and ad vised him not to make any report of the mysterious snake at the station house When he reached the house however every one had heard of the snake HeI was roasted unmercifully by the other coppers who accused him of being drunk and hitting the pipe Several months later when he learned he was the victim of a practical joke he was furious He swore he would whip the men who hoaxed him if he knew who they were but he never learned their names Reilly was the victim ofa similar joke a few months later It was in the winter time when some one who was wintering in Florida sent one of the boys an alligator When the gator reached the station house he was in a badway from the cold He was placed under the section room stove and every effort made to thaw him out After a time he began to show signs of life He was carried up to Reillys cot and placed therein between the blankets Reilly began to get read for bed half an hour later As was his custom when retiring hn knelt down be side his cot to pray He always prayed in an audible tone and ended his prayers with God bless my enemies He asked blessing for his enemies this night and pulled down the clothes on his bed As the clothes were removed the gatorI opened his jaws wide and gave a peculiar kind of a yawn Reilly jumped back andswore himself blue in the face when the men in the section room laughed boisterously Reaching over for his club he dealt the poor gator a powerful blowI on the head which put him out of busi ness Dressed only in his nightshirt Reilly ran down the stairs to the Ser geants desk Sergeant hero3ro Omeowdy put an alligator in my bed and I want you to see it for yourself Up the Sergeant went to Reillys sleeping quarters but there wasnt any sign of the reptile While Reilly was making his complaint the dead gator was thrown out a rear window It was found in the yard the next morning When Reilly was praying he was sub jected to all sorts of indignities by his roommates As he would be about finish ing rubber boots shoes helmets and night sticks would shower about his head Then he would swear regardless of the fact that a minute before he had been praying He would start for the first man he saw throw anything at him and there would be a rough and tumble fight Reilly could fight too and the man he tackled never got away without a couple of hard bangs But that didnt deter the boys from placing stove coal salt pins and every conceivable thing in his bed when they wanted to have fun As you would expect Reilly was an Irishman from the ground up Anything tending to better the condition of Ireland met his Hearty support Everything printed in the papers about the home rule movement at that time was read over andover again by Reilly One day he came in the house from post and picked up a paper from the section room In big letters at the head of a column was the caption Home Rule for Ireland The rest of the boys were engaged in watching the dying moments of Nigger Jim a faithful dog that had been at tached to the station house for years and who was poisoned by some miscreant earlier in the day Reilly read a few lines of the home rule article and then threw the paper on the floor yelling loudly Hurrah for Ireland Well get home rule at last- Before Reilly had finished Nigger Jim staggered across the floor and fell in a heap on the unopened newspaper Reilly had been reading The dog gave a couple of convulsive shivers and was dead Home rule for Ireland means death to terriers said some one jocularly Reilly got mad and insisted on whipping the man who insulted his race He would have carried out his threat too if he hadnt been held until he cooled down somewhat Nigger Jim by the way was buried in the station house yard and his bones now rest there When Reilly was transferred from the Tenderloin he carried his belongings to his new post He was very saving and wouldnt spend a dollar unless he had to The night he went away he shouldered the mattress of Ms cot and started to leave the house A couple of mischiev ous coppers stood on the station house stoop As Reilly walked down the stoop one end of the mattress was slit open with a penknife and a match put to it Reillyreached Seventh avenue before he discovered the fire He dropped the burning mattress and jumped to the firealarm box on the corner Then he lJaveheardwhen they learned why they had been called out But Reilly did itciireHe ww too interested in trying to ccover r fR I Af m how the fire started He never did find out Where is he now retired asked one of the listener as the story of Reilly was brought to a finish indeed he is not retired He is still1 pounding the pavements in one of the upper West Side precinc- tsAPPOINTED POLICEMEN The Board of Safety Brings the Force Up toits Full Quota The long
