The great firm has not hitherto gone in for yacht building, but such is its and possibilities record, capabilities that the defenders may look well to their laurels. The first representative of Sir Thomas Lipton to arrive in this country is a sturdy Irishman who comes of good Irish stock the Hon. Charles Russell. He is the son of Lord Killowen, the Lord Chief Justice of England, the first 1 rishman who has held that honor. Lord Killowen was born at Killowen, a lonely but charming spot near Rosstrevor, in County Down. lue Kussells were a honest, simple people, in tensely devoted to the old faith. Charles was destined, in his mother's eyes, for the church his uncle was President of the alma mater of the Irish priesthood, Maynooth College. His brother Matthew, however, entered the church, and is to day a prominent member of the Jesuit maga order. He also edits a high-clas- s zine called the Irish Monthly. Charles went to the law. He began his legal career as a police court attorney in Belfast, 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 party and followed the fortunes of Gladstone. He sat in Parliament for County Louth until defeated by a Parnellite candidate. Russell, at this time Sir Charles, has held office under Gladstone. When "the Grand Old Man" became converted to Home Rule Sir Charles was one of the foremost champions of the cause, aud 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 his old home in Ireland and became Lord Killowen. His son, Sir Thomas Lipton's envoy, practices in London as an attorney.

There are thousonds, besides, of Ulster Yacht Club, bearers of Sir Thomas Lipton's challenge of the America's Cup, interest in the sport, which has received little impetus during the past season, is reviving, and yachtsmen arc looking forward to a red letter year in 1699. The challenger is known to some extent in 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 Sharinan-CrawforMcGildowner 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 Liptou is proud of the land of his fathers. The "hard times" in Ireland drove his parents out to seek work and shelter in the city of Glasgow, in which he was born, but the accident to of hk birth d, hasreiusedjiim V Glasgow Irish, the offspring of famine days, but the strip of sea between the Scotch and Irish coasts does not separate their hearts from the old land. Wealth and honors have not rendered Sir Thomas any less sterling than plain Tom Lipton, and the genuineness of his character is made clear when, turning homeward, he raises up Ireland to challenge for the America's 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 ships. imported or exported in Irish-buiOne hundred and sixteen years ago these restrictions were removed, aud England, in difficulty, in response to the demaud of Henry Grattan aud the volunteers, granted "free trade" or rather the right to trade. But what with famines and insurrections, nothing on a large scale wa3 attempted in shipbuilding for over half a century. Yards were established in various parts of the country, hut 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 iij other cities, but exorbitant prices were asked, and eventually the workshops were erected on the strip of land known aa the Queen's Island, on the County Down side of the city of Belfast, then a town struggling gallantly out of its swaddling clothes. The island was originally little better than a mud heap, and was known as Dargan's Island, but local enterprise connected it with the mainland, and on it was erected one of those crystal palaces, a craze for which existed in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign. The young Queen was received in this palace on her first and last visit years ago, to Ireland, some forty-eigand in commemoration of this the island and its connecting filled-i- n ground was renamed the Queen's 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 0,000 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 largest ship that sail? tlie seas. At the Queen's Island are also built the magnificently luxurious ships of the Peninsular and Oriental Steamship Company, Harland & Wolff have besides added some of its finest vessels .to the British navy.

Friday are Sharman-CrawforKelly aud Hugh McGildowney. The is a magic name of Sharman-Crawfor- d one in Ireland, especially in the Ulster province. First among the champions of the Irish tenant farmers was the grandfather of the present bearer of the honored name. At a lime when, according even to the English Solicitor-Genera- l, the houses of the tenantry were such as the lower animals would not endure, when they had neither right nor title to the soil which they cultivated and improved, Sharman - Crawford fought their battle. In 1835 he introduced in the British Parliament bills for the improvement of their condition, but only to meet defeat. Year after year from' his seat in Parliament he pleaded their cause, but in vaia until in 184G and 1847 a million aud a half of the Irish peasantry died of hunger on the roadsides. Sharman-Crawford was the soul of the movement, and, backed by the sturdy Presbyterian farmers of Ulster, he waged a fierce battle against the landlords and their friends. The fight waged by Sharman-Crawforalthough 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 still living, took up the standard where his father dropped it, and carried on the battle in and out of Parliament. The Tenant Right Association paved the way for the Land League and concessions of which the elder Crawford never even dreamed. The present Sharman-Crawfor- d has taken no part in politics, preferring to devote himself to sports and to the enjoyment of his beautiful home at Crawford's Burn, overlooking Belfast Lough. On his property is situated the Royal Ulster Club house. Nearby is the charming seaside place Bangor aud the seat of the Commodore of the yachi club, the Earl of Dufferin.

The Labor Day celebration of 1898 has come and gone. The excellent pro gramme for the occasion was carried out to the letter and reflects great credit on the gentlemen having charge of the ar rangements. Allliougu the skies were cloudy and showers fell about noon, the ardor and interest of the people were not dampened, and the immense parade was witnessed by probably a larger number of people than on any former occasion. The parade was a success i n every respect, the marchers conducting themselves in military style throughout the whole route. Chief Marshal Humphrey Kuecht and the vast number of men in line were the recipients of cheers and praise from the starting point to the finish for the splen did appearance and precision which was displayed by them. Each of the twenty unions participating is entitled to credit, but the printers, salesmen and stone-cu- t ters are entitled to special mention. The printers made an excellent showing, though not as large as they expected, because the members of their union who work on the afternoon papers were un able to take part. The Salesmen's Union turned out in one of the prettiest uni forms ever seen on the streets of this city, and they proved themselves the best The drilled body in the procession. parade and line of march were carried out in the order announced in our last week's issue.

With nearly every trades union were the floats of some of the employers and business houses. These were elegantly gotten up and were far above general expectation. Levy Bros., clothing dealers, exthe Market-strehibited their public spirit by furnishing the handsomest and most attractive float in the parade. The floats of the Frank Fehr and Senn & Ackerman Brewing Companies also made a neat appearance in line with the Brewers' Union. The following are the firms and unions who placed floats in the parade: Evening Post. Louisville Dispatch. Courier-JournJob Printing Company. Levy Bros. Mammoth Clothing Company. Loevenhart Clothing Company. Crutcher & Starks. Frank Fehr Brewing Company. Senn and Ackerman. Phoenix Hill Brewing Company. Union Brewing Company. Schaefer & Meyer Brewing Company. Christ Brewery.

A float that caused general comment was that of the Cigarmakers' Union, showing the difference between the union-mad- e product and that of the scab g shop and tenement-hous- e article. The industrial parade was a great suc cess and will be long remembered by all who took part in or witnessed it. After the procession disbanded the workers and their friends took possession of Phoenix Hill Park, where the balance of the afternoon and night were devoted to recreation and enjoyment. In addition to an excellent concert in the park there was fine dance music in the large hall, and the floor was constantly thronged with merry young folks until a late hour. The main feature of the evening was the address of Mr. Charles N. Jacques, n labor student and writer, the who was introduced by Mr. Herman Christen, the Chairman, to one of the largest audiences ever assembled to listen to a Labor Day oration in this city. Owing to recent illness Sir. Jacques was unable to speak as long as was desired; nevertheless his speech' was received with enthusiasm and was frequently applauded. Owing to lack of space we are compelled to omit it from this issue. It will.be printed in full next week, and we commend its perusal to all classes of our citizens.

He it was who yelled, "Come on, F," and filled the men of his command with his own tumultuous enthusiasm. Modest as he is brave, Capt. Rafietty, when seen by a reporter, said first and foremost 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 School, which does not rank as high as Rugby. I was born in Bedford, Ireland, not in England. I have served in the Buckinghamshire Yeomanry, as stated, and I've 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 ot Santiago. We all expected that, but I must say I was disappointed at the way we took it. It does not become an officer to criticise his superiors.

It was as bad for those in tents 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 I'd better be right there in case anything turned up, so I dug a shelf for myself. "It is this way: One side of the trench slopes the 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 and all. "I must have heen there nbout one hour when I was literally washed out.

"Of course, there was no use trying to keep dry, and sleep was out of the question. So we stood around together waiting for daylight." "Didn't you fear a night attack?" "Well there was danger of that, for they knew the ground and we didn't, and we might easily have begun shooting our own men. The sentries could only see when there was a flash of lightning. Then they would throw their eyes about and sec if anything was going on." "Was the rain cold?" "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 another.

" Lend me a pencil and I'll try to show you. in the early morning we were at Balloon Forks, as the 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 Keek's first out on the road; beyond them the Second battalion, and further in front the First battalion. These were nearest the ene my's 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 road and 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 point. The men ot 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 toward the eminence on which the fort stood. Adjt. Tarrian, of the Twenty-fourt- h infantry, one of the colored regi ments, a splendid officer and man, came up and said, 'Where are you going?' "I replied, 'Up the hill." " 'Good,' said he. 'You're the kiud we want.' So along with the regulars Company F went up. "Then you had a full company of vol unteers 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 alojg came Gen. Hawkins. Seeing my cap, he said, 'Who are you? replied, 'Company F, of the Seventy- first.' 'Any others?' he asked. 'Not that I know of,' I answered. You see, at such a juncture forma tions get broken up and commands separated. So he continued, 'Very well, remain with the Twenty-fourt- h and fall back and rest.' You understand, fresh troops were coming up and we were pretty 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 all unsupported, my company and Major Keek's battalion, which had .somehow managed to get to the front it was really wonderful how they did it, too went over to support the artillery.

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 aud reorganize commands, and that's very trying all 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 wholesome disregard for all that sometimes. I believe times come when you've got to disobey or to anticipate orders and you'll win honor and credit for doing so. Discipline and obedience are great things, but not to be followed tmder all circum- stances." "When you were ordered to retire from the crest of the heighth with the regulars, had the firing become less steady?" "No; they kept clearing that slope with volleys right along. That's why the unprotected battery over on the right, which we went to support, had to hurry to get away. I can't collect my thoughts just now, but I think it was Battery K, of the Fourth artillery. They were stripped for hot work revolvers, belts, everything was on the ground around them. I remember picking up one officer's revolver and returning it to him the next day." The Captain was full of his subject, and forgetting his physician's orders sat upright and spoke earnestly, but his watchful wife here stepped in and begged him to rest. He 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 don't give me credit where it isn't mine." BRIGHT PKOSPECT8. A meeting of the tenants on the Pur-don estate, at O'Gonnelloe, was held on Wednesday, Rev. P. Glynn in the chair. The reverend chairman said that while the most friendly relations had existed between the Purdon tenantry and their landlords and agent, he was sure they were all delighted that they were within measurable distance of becoming their own landlords. The profits of farming in Ireland were far too small to permit of p division of them between landlord and tenant. They shpuld be prepared to pay u fair purchase pnee, such a price as would enable them to pay the interest on the money borrowed and meet their obligations to the shopkeeper and discharge the duties toward their children. They should make an honest and a reasonable offer for their holdiugs, and not impose on themselves burdens which they would not be able to bear. Resolutions were then passed expressing satisfaction at the prospect of a sale to the tenants, and pledging those present to give a fair "live and let live" price for their holdings. Is The newest shade of red is begonia. It rich and deep, and not so harsh as cherry red or cardinal. Here is a Standard Oil millionaire who says the laboring class should unite and prepare themselves for mighty conflict with capital; who openly denounces monopoly as tyranny and monopolists as thieves and robbers; who asserts and be lieves 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- autof Edmund Burke, the great Commoner of England. He was Secretary of the famous Eagle Oil Company before it was swallowed up by Mr. Johu D. Rocke feller's 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 in America. He owned 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 tentacles have held all his interests fast ever since that day. Charles Russell Burke, the author of this striking bit of advice 'to American workingmen, is a cousin of Senator Red- field Proctoron his mother'sside. : ..The ""- es are a VtMMfrlamilyr A very rich and influential uncle of the writer is Charles C. Burke, of the New England Produce Exchange. This new and ardent friend of the laboring man married a few years ago Miss Maria C. Benson, a daughter of R. H. Benson, founder of the beautiful town of Bensonhurst, L. I. In his novel, called "Thistle Sifters," the advance sheets of which the Sunday Journal has just received from F. Tennyson Neely, Mr. Burke says all this, and a 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 story is interesting and the pointed lesson it conveys to the men who produce (ill the wealth in tlx world, and who reap so little of the fruit of their toil, is a sufficient excuse for the medium chosen by the author. This is Mr. Burke's language to American labor: "You are being oppressed to the verge of slavery by your masters, the controllers of the great monopolistic corporaThere is no help for. you untions. 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 need. "It 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 is 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 the country, is the direct outgrowth of your toil, or the toil of men who, like you, received only a pittance for their work, while all the vast profits have gone into the pockets of manipulators and schemers. "In your present broken and disorganized condition you can do nothing to further your intetests nor to regain your rights.

Dietztuan in charge of the business department, and under this management it was a powerful and popular paper, notwithstanding its Republican principles. When it fell into the hands of the present tramp management its circulation and business diminished into insignificance and its influence was quickly lost. The libelous and lying article which it published in its issue of Wednesday last on the police force appointments shows to what damnable depths of degradation it has descended. ihe KSSves in ch of it imagine that they are playing smart politics when they invent falsehoods and give them currency in order to stir up race and national prejudices among and against our citizens of foreign birth and descent Its editor coined a lie, put it in the mouth of Mayor Weaver and his official associates and labeled it "Damn the Dutch." That expres sion bears the stamp of the Com mercial office and shows how deep its degradation is. Against the Post's fling at carpet baggers it places the sentiment o the honest people of Kentucky in favor of immigration to shield its Ohio tramps; but it seeks in every possible, way to stir up prejudice against the people of Irish descent and against the population of German extraction. The people and the politicians have not said "Damn the Dutch," but they have damned the Commercial and its tramps and marplots from Ohio, who came here to breed discord and enmity between those who are naturally SCANDALOUS CARELESSNESS. zens in all quarters, and are willing The whole country stands aghast to do the same for the Germans, but at the horrible ravages that fever that is unnecessary, as our neigh-au- d other sickness are reported by bor, the Auzeiger, has for many the daily press to have made among years demonstrated. the soldiers at Camp Wikoif and Hon.

The only case of vandalism on record In the history of the world is to be found in England' doings in America, and in the columns of England's chief newspaper, the London Times, it stands as a loudly applauded "splendid achieveThe 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 destruction of public buildings which is implied in the word vandalism." This same publication boils down the whole history of the Cockburn barbarism to one senteuace, as follows: "In 1814, during the second war with Great Britain it (Washington) was cap. tured by the British troops, and the Capitol, together with most of the other public buildings, was burned." Perhaps the writer was ashamed to go into particulars, yet even in the little he writes there is disgrace enough. Our war of 1812 was subsequently a continuation of the fight for American independence. When the first British soldier quitted the soil of America in 1783 the freedom of the new nation was an accomplished fact, but it was not yet in the full sense an independent nation. Benjamin Franklin, when a fellow countryman remarked that the war for independence was successfully closed, replied: "Say, rather, that the war of the revolution. 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 III. and the Parliament of England recognized the fact that they had been beaten. Though compelled to acknowledge defeat and America's rank as a nation, they still insisted on claiming, "Once a British subject, always a British subject." On the strength ot tuis aocinue a proc lamation was issued by the British Government giving authority to the commanders of British war vessels to press into citizens wherthe service "British-born- " ever found. "In the course pi 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 without effect. No arguments, no remonstrances, no appeals to justice could induce the British Government to relinquish so great an advantage, and so flagrant and frequent were these outrages towards the close of 1805 that in the memorials 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 provisious. "It was," says Spencer, "iu the Chesapeake principally that this discreditable species of warfare was carried on by the British ships. Cockburn was in command, and 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." Frenchtown, Md., was attacked and plundered on April 29. On this occasion Cockburn burned and plundered the Village to the amount of $5,000, besides some ships that were in the harbor. Havre de Grace was the marauding knight's next object of visitation. On May 3 the English ships assailed the town by rockets, which set the houses on fire, 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 "civilizers" next sailed up the Sassafras river, burning and plundering. Havre de Grace was fCO.000 poorer when they left than when they came. Georgetown and Frederickstown a few days later received visits from Admiral Cockburn and were property. of considerable deprived "These exploits," says Spencer, "were worthy of pirates and savages." To continue, Cockburn's vandalism would only be a repetition of the foregoing, In Spencer's 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 Gen. Croghan at Port Stephenson, Perry on Lake Erie and that of Benjamin Harrison at Thames), and the war henceforth promised to be One of savage inroads and ruthless destruction."

" 'You've been drinking, Reilly, and THE BRUNT OF JOKES A group of police officials whose paths are now strewn with roses sat ill the cafe n Broadway hotel one evenof an ing last week and talked of the old days, when they were young iu the police business. Every man in the group was an and all had interesting anecdotes 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 right-han- d man. The Story he related had to do with that time. "In all my time on the police force, and incidentally the'nine 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 Christian name, but the boys dubbed him 'Ginger,' and the name has stuck to him old-time- r, since." "He must have been hot stuff!" some one ejaculated. "He was hot stuff," continued the narrator. "An Irishman by birth, he was as profane and as religious a man as I knew in the business. Reilly's profanity was a source of wonder to the men in his platoon. The boys would tease him just to hear him swear. " He didn't mean to be profane, but it seemed to come natural to him and he couldn't stop it. That's the reason he was dubbed 'Ginger.' If any one had a practical joke to spring, Reilly was the man who had to staud.the brunt of it. And there were a good many practical jokers quartered in the Thirtieth-street station-hous- e when Reilly was there. "For a post Reilly had Madison avenue from Twenty-thir- d to Twenty-sevent- h street. The first year Barnum showed in Madison Square Garden the show hadn't been running a week when a rumor was afloat that an ininienyg q,n?nondn' hgd. escaped from the circus. It was only a rumor, of course, and probably originated in the brain of the circus press agent. Auyway, it was seized by a couple of Reilly's 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 d material and had it sewed in circular joints on the stovepipe plan. When the cloth joints were they measured about fifteen feet. One end tapered and on the other was fastened an immense snake's head, which was procured from a theatrical costumer. This makeshift snake was kept hidden for a couple of nights iu a Fourth-avenu- e grocery store near Madison Square Garden. The grocer was well supplied with chaff and sawdust, of which he agreed to let us have all we wanted. With the chaff and sawdust we were going to stuff our cloth-mad- e anaconda, "Reilly was to be the victim, and we left no stone unturned to give him a good scare. A couple of nights before the trick was sprung the jokers talked in awed tones about the anaconda that escaped from the circus. Reilly was always an interested listener,' and the boys got him worked up in great shape.4 He was especially interested as Madison Square G.arden, from where the anaconda was alleged to have escaped, was on his post. The night the joke was to be played Reilly didn't go on post until 12 o'clock When the midnight platoon turned out the Sergeant on duty read the following general alarm at my request: " 'Escaped from Barnum's Greatest Show on Earth, now being held in Madi ana son Square Garden, a copper-colore- d conda, fifteen feet long and as thick as a man's leg. The anaconda is a man strangler and very dangerous. If seen iu 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-mad- e anaconda was in the Fourth-avenu- e grocery rapidly being 'filled with chaff and sawdust. When the job was finished it was quite a respectable serpent for one jaws were of its kind. The paper-mad- e far apart, showing a glowing red within At 2 a. m. Reilly was sighted on the west side of Madison avenue at Twenty-thir- d street The snake was carried into Twenty-sixt- h 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 half way across Madison Square Park, where that end of it was manipulated by myself standing behind an immense tree. I was to furnish the snake's 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 Twenty-sixt- h street. XH serpent was already moving at a good pace.

But that didn't 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 and over 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! We'll 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 hadn't 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 wouldn't spend a dollar unless be had to. The night he went away he shouldered the mattress of his cot and started to leave the house. A couple of mischievous 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. Reilly reached Seventh avenue before he discovered the fire. He dropped the burning mattress and jumped to the box on the corner. Then he turned in an alarm.

At a meeting of the Mohill and Ruskey National Teachers' Association, held in the following resolutions the court-hous"That we were passed unanimously: consider recent changes in the Maynooth resolutions amply sufficient to insure security of tenure to teachers serving under Catholic managers, and we are deeply grateful to the Bishops for being the first and only body to meet the teachers' reasonable demands in this matter." Loughrea Wolf Tone '98 Club held a demonstration in honor of the immortal Tone. The town was illuminated; the band paraded the streets playing national airs. Some visitors from America headed the procession. When the house where lived Peter Pinerty, editor .of the Press, was reached patriotic tunes were played and cheers were given. The Abbey Convent and Parochial House were visited. Rev. Father Nohilly addressed the meeting. In the House of Commons last week Mr. Dillon initiated a debate as to the conduct of the authorities in connection with Sergeant Sullivan. The Attorney General snid he thought Sullivan had been removed from Mallaranny. It would have been wiser if he were not allowed to escort Kelly to Castlebar jail, and he would inquire into the charges made against Sullivan's companions of searching houses without warrants. Sergeant Sullivan has left Mallaranny barrack. The New Zealand Observer said that St. Benedict's Hall, Auckland, was densely packed when the Irish Centenary of 1798 was commemorated by a gathering presided over by a Mr. J. Callnan. Three most interesting addresses were delivered. The first was by Bishop Lani-hawho, as the grandson of one of the patriots who fell in the rebellion, had a special claim to the sympathy and attention of the audience. Then came a really delightful speech by Mr. William Whit-take- r, brother of Mr. Robert Whittaker, Sligo. The Oliver Bond '98 Association in Bornacoola is doing good work for old Ireland. A meeting was held recently, Charles Burbage, Chairman, presiding. J. Havlen, V. C. J. Conboy, J. Shanley, J. Diffley, J. Farrell, John J. Mulloy, present. The committee decided that the Ballinamuck demonstration to come off on Sunday, September 4, is deserving of every encouragement. It is intended to be the big event of this '98 year, and we confidently rely on the men of Bornacoola to turn out in their hundreds on the above date. Orange rowdyism in Belfast is dying hard. When men of the Belfast contingent to the Wolfe Tone demonstration, Dublin, Angust 15, were returning to Belfast an Orange mob collected near the railway terminis, Victoria street; commenced to curse the Pope and sing "Rule Britannia." They flung stones at the cantijicent, . .Nationalist smashed many valuable windows in business houses, etc. These ruffiians could not have so conducted themselves had the police done their duty and prevented them from assembling. The county consists of twelve baronies, named Ballyboy, Ballybritt, Ballycowan, Clonlisk, Coolstown, English, Garrycas-tle- , Geashill, Kilcoursey, Philipstown Lower, Philipstown Upper, and Warren-towwith a total area of 493,203 acres, which in 1841 supported a population of 140,857, and upon which area at last census (1891) only 05,503 persons were living. More than' half of the people of the county have been swept away under British rule since 1841, exclusive of the increase that would have taken place in the natural order. Thomas Judge, in the employment of Mr. Daniel O'Hara, grocer and provision dealer, Bessbrook, for fifteen years, has mysteriously disappeared. When Mrs. O'Hara came into the shop one morning Judge had gone and she found the following letter pinned to a ledger: "I am gone forever; make no search for me. You can give my worldly goods to my people or keep them yourself." On the return of Mr. O'Hara from Newry his wife showed the letter, and at once communicated with the police, who are searching for Judge. Dr. Rawson, medical officer of the Carlow Union, when writing to the Local Government Board on the condition of the Union Hospital, said of the nuns: "Permit me to add an expression of my deep sense of the magnificent devotion of the nuns. It would be impossible to surpass their energy and untiring attention, their utter forgetfulness of self and the extraordinary rapidity with which they learn, and apply any teaching I give them. It is a tremendous pressure for four nuns to do the nursing and look after all the household arrangements." The remains of Mr. John Devlin were interred in Prospect cemetery, Dublin, lately. He was born in Newry n years ago. He went to Dublin eleven years ago and joined the Gaelic Athletic Association. Preparing for this year's Centenary celebrations he did a great deal of useful work. He died in harness after a brief illness, surrounded by the hurlers whom he loved. At the meeting of the Celtics, on the motion of Mr. D. Walsh, seconded by Mr. T. Foley, a vote of sympathy with the family was passed, and a deputation delegated to attend the funeral. Mr. Robert Moouey, a native of Maryborough, was found dead in the sea at Ashgrove, near Quecnstown, lately. He had lived many years in the United States. About three years ago he returned, and set up in business at 10 and 11 Mabbott street, Dublin. The brother died some time ago, and deceased decided to go to America again, which accounts for him being in Queenstown. He was about 35 years of age. It is stated he has brothers James and Luke in Baltimore and Boston. He had on him two deposit receipts for money and an Amer ican bank book. e, n, n, fifty-seve- HIBERNIANS.

Messrs. James Campbell and Dave Murphy, who have been quite sick lately, are reported as rapidly improving. Patrick Cronan is the possessor of a fine voice. His singing Thursday evening greatly pleased the members of No. 2. Frank Cunningham has labored zealously to make the benefit a financial success, and has in a great measure succeeded.
