I KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN I I L VOLUME INO 11 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 17 1898 PRICE FIVE CENTS SILVER JUBILEE I Anniversary of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in This City Movement on hoot fa Appropri ately CcluurntotlWciit Next Year Front One Division the Number Has Increased Until Now There Are Six WOULD DRAW CROWDS TO THE CITY With the approach of next spring or summer the Ancient Order of Hibernians will have existed in Louisville for twenty five years and a public celebration of the silver jubilee of the order is very warmly advocated by a large contingent of the more prominent members Owingto the large number of Hibernians and Irish Americans who during the past year have enlisted and gone to the front to battle for our glorious country and a feeling that while the present war existed all our efforts and means should be devoted to bringing the same to a successful issue plans that had been mapped out for dirf ferent celebrations were abandoned For the foregoing reason the celebration in honor of the one hundredth anni versary of Irelands heroes of 1798 which was to have been on a magnificent scale did not take place In fact the course pur sued in Louisville was followed through out the entire country Now that the war is over attention can be given wholly to home affair and when the date of the celebration arrives great numbers of the soldiers will have been mustered out and will thereby be enabled to participate in the event The Ancient Order of Hibernians is composed only of patriotic and respecta ble Irishmen and they possess the ability to arrange a celebration that wduld reflect credit on the order and be of vast benefit to the city of Louisville For several years past nothing has occurred to attract strangersto our city The Kentucky Irish American heartily favors the cele bration of the coming silver jubilee on an elaborate scale which night takethe foiulaRr Bsu + ItAi IJgYoat night to be followed by addresses by some of the great Irish American orators and banquets and balls numerous enough to accommodate all who may come here on that occasion The six divisions at present in this city would be augmented by those throughout the State New Albany and Jeffersonville and excursions could be arranged for from Cincinnati Chicago Indianapolis Nashville and other cities in adjoining States which would bring thousands of visitors to our city and be of incalculable benefit to our merchants Various plans for the celebration are under consideration and it may be that all the IrishAmerican societies of the city will be induced to take an active part In the affair and make it of a nature which will include all The history of the organization in Louisville is an interesting one and the good it has done for its members and others is beyond computation There are a number of the original uiembers of the first division established here still living and they would undoubtedly by gratified to see their labors of the past twentyfive years thus properly appreciated There is no doubt that the Hibernian Knights would take a very prominent part and add A very interesting feature to the celebration of the anniversary With the matter in the hands of County President John Murphy Martin Cusick Thomas Keenan James Rogers William Median John J Barrett Joseph Taylor William Lawler P J Breen John H Hennessy Frank Cunningham and many others whose names might be mentioned the success of the undertaking wild be assured and our Irish Antericau citizens could look forward to a demon stration reflecting credit not only upon t themselves but also the entire com munity SACRED HEART PICNIC Success of the Year Scored Handsome Sum of Money Realized The Sacred Heart picnic given last Monday was an immense success It would be

LEXINGTON Observations Taken in the Bluegrass Metropolis Visit to the Soldiers at Fort Hamilton Having been called to the Bluegrass Capital upon a mission of business com bined with pleasure I determined to see all that could be seen in the limited amount of timeat my disposal The day of my arrival in the city happened to be Labor Day and an unusually large crowd was in town I was told that it was al most as large as the crowd that welcomed William J Bryan in J890 The Labor Day parade while not near as large as previous ones was exceedingly good and much of its success is due to the printers who got the parade up Col James Weeks the handsome standardbearer of the local Typographical Union headed time parade and many a young maiden cast sweet smiles at the young Apollo as he passed by The Fourth Kentucky Volunteers turned out and added greatly to the parade The corner stone oT the new Court house was laid on Labor Day under the auspicies of the Masons with very im pressive ceremonies Fifteen years ago the writer stood upon the Same spot and witnessed JherJayingiOfthejcorrieyStcrie eonTt hmt il stroyed by fire a little over a year ago As I glanced over the surging crowd of humanity but few old familiar faces greeted my eye Many that witnessed the ceremony fifteen years ago on that July day have gone to their eternal rewardOne of the busiest institutions in the city is St Josephs Hospital on West Second street The hospital is in charge of the Sisters of Charity Sister Euphra sia is the manager and has proven herself a very competent and careful one Since she took charge many new and important improvements have been made At present a beautiful chapel is nearing comple tion Rev John J ONeill is the chap lain and he is loved very much by both sisters and the patients He never tires of ministering to their spiritualwants and day and night can always be found at his post- Father McMahon chaplain of the Ninth Pennsylvania Volunteers is at the hospital sick with typhoid fever as are Also several soldiers The most interestingpoint around Lex ington at present is Camp Hamilton five miles from the city on the Lexington Eastern railway Col L J McNamara a wellknown young Lexington news paper man acted as my guide and board ing the train in eight minutes we were at the camp A more ideal spot could not be selected in all the Bluegrass region than the one where Camp Hamilton is located It is situated upon a gradually sloping hill and the slightest breezethat stirs is wafted to the travelstainedand weary soldiers The division hospital is an ideal institution and over 700 soldiers are now inmates of it Fifty Sisters of Charity arrived Tuesday and took charge All the delicacies usually furnished thb sick are prepared and given the soldiers Everything is carefully and systematic ally arranged There is no confusion everything goes on like clockwork The Twelfth New York Eighth Massachu setts and Twentyfirst Kansas are three of the finest regiments in camp The Second Kentucky arrived last Tuesday and went into camp They will get thirty days furlough and at the end of that time will be mustered out I found quite a number of people that had seen and read the Kentpcky Irish Americrn and spoke very highly of it There is strong talk of organizing branch of the Ancient Order of Hiber nians in this city There is an excellent field for a division there being over five hundred representative Irish Americans in this city A division will probably be organized about the second Sunday in October Quite a number of Hibernians from Covington Louisville and Frank fort will be up to assist in the organiza tion D J M ST GEORGES BAZAAR The members of St Georges congregation will bold a meeting Sunday to make the necessary arrangements for a

Will Cause Many Changes I The County C JJlcUS Mil Give II Somethingic IDlfPinCrR lo- In Every Cpititty Cities and TWiitjj1 iKiM First Experience tko jforaflohs d of the Act FEATURES OP A GOOD MEASURE The new local government act for Ire land causes nmcny changes in existing conditions Section one of the act estab lishes in every administrative county a county council consisting of a chairman and councillors To this council is transferred all the fiscal business of the grand jury with the exception of the power of making presentments for malicious in jury which passes over to the county courts The presentments of the grand jury had to be formally approved of by a Judge of assize This fiat is now abolised as is also the traverse before alluded to so that in all general natters the county council is practically an independent local parliament Besides the powers of the grand jury the county councilwill have the power of the board of guardians with respect Jto raising and levying the poor rate in other words all the rates in each county for the future will be raised by the county council in one generalrate In addition the county council will have transferred to it the administration of the diseases of animals act the explosives act the acts relating to technical education and the management of lunatic asy lums including all the powers of the board of control which is Abolished Upon the county council is also conferred large powers for acquisition of land for county purposes and a number of other duties and powers to be considered here after in detail The new councils thus constituted will be elected by parliament ary electors for the county with the ad dition of women and peers whbare qualified ino11cr reSpects and U I IF- atins wlllbeby ballot Itvilll duty+bFthejlocalgonerrn6titl fr r11f the purpose of the first election to divide each county into electoral divisions each ofwhich with certain exceptions in the case of urban districts will return one member to the county council The county council may coopt two additional members from among the electors and the grand jury may as regards the first county councils nominate three of their number to be members of the body They will all hold office for three years and then go out in a body So far for the county councils For the discharge of the business of the more circumscribed local areas with in the county subordinate bodies called district councils are established These are divided into two classes urban district councils and tural district councils Where there is an urban sanitary author ity at present existing this council within its own area will have all the powers of the grand jury with regards to roads etc and will raise its own rates while being subject to some general control and answerable for certain contributions to time county council In the areas where no urban sanitary authority exists rural districts governed by rural district councils will come into existence The rural district will as far as possible correspond with the existing poor law union and will be composed of councillors elected on the same franchise as the members being elected for each electoral division now electing one guardian with an in creased number for electoral divisions or wards which now elect more than one guardian The district councillors for each di vision will also be the guardians for that division so that in time rural districts there will be two distinct bodies consist ing of the same individual members but having separate functions The district council will have the powers at present possessed by the baronial presentment sessions and also will take over certain of the powers of the guardians Neither these councils nor the guardians how ever will have any power to make or levy taxes this being done by the county councils who will provide funds for local purposes Like the county council the rural district councils have the power of cooption being authorized to elect three additional members in this way As regards tune first cpuncil three persons who have been exofiicio guardians of the union must also be selected Six boroughs namely Dublin Belfast Cork Derry Limerick and Vaterford will become administrative counties for the purpose of thauct The act however will not change time constitution of their corporations and will practically speaking only operate in two respects 1 to give them any powers given to county councils under this act and which they do not already possess and 2 to extend the franchise In the rase of all these cities except Belfast and Londonderry where under local acts elections on an extended fran inheof all urban and other municipal districts the first elections will take place on January 16 next and alt the members of J 1Itt r the municipal bodies will be elected The cities and toy ns will thus be the first to experience he operation of the act the first clectioi s in the counties not taking place till March 25 next In the case of towns V hicu arc not urban districts the proves on enables the local government board ti constitute any town having a population over 1000 into an urban district a

the largest division Division No1 will in he neat future give an entertainment to its friends and members that will be a surprise and will undoubtedly surpass anything that has heretofore taken place in Ancient Order of Hibernian circles Our readers are reminded that on the evening of Thursday September 22 Division 2 will have an open meeting at A O H Hall There will be no pre arranged programme no one knowing whftt part he will be called upon to take Members of the order and their friends are invited to attend Thee will be plenty of fun The members of the uniform rank had an enjoyable time at their last meeting After the business was transacted a stag party was formed Joe Taylor opening the proceedings with one of his inimitable speeches after which Tom Langan and Arthur Campbell gave an original and very amusing performance of three acts each act being of one round Col Mike Tynan was the cynosure of all eyes at throe meeting of Division No1 The anxiety was caused by the recent publication of the following by Miss Miller the Tattler One of time most strikingly handsome figures in the Labor Day parade was that of Deputy Mike Tynan He attracted generalattention and keptin time to the music like a vet eran as the procession filed along He got the tunes so grounded in his head that when the marchers disbanded Col Tynan kept right straight on as if all the bands were playing and the people staring with bulging eyes The sessions of the City Court opened and shut for three days and still he was missing from his place of duty Prisoners were tried and convicted cleared and fined and yet he was not Other men who had been in the parade had returned to their sphere of labor but not so Deputy Tynan Shermans march to the sea was not in it with the steady and incessant tramp he kept up wheeling around corners and some one insinuated that he had been gotten between the bases somewhere and the crowd was after him Finally after three weary days hadl passed Deputy Tynan made his appearance he appeared sad and preoccupied and marching in Central station walked up to Adonis Collins and asked for One beer with a sausage His friends looked signifi cantly at one another and Deputy Na pier remarked sadly that it seemed to be all day wid Moikc Mike was too gallant to offer any explanation as the author of the interesting story was a lady other than the Mikes mixed and her

III Face of the Enemy Hardships Met With Jokes Irish Wit Displayed Oil the Battlefield WON THE DAY FOR GEN MDOWELL The gallant Sixtyninth was the army designation during the civil war of the famous New York regiment And this title it won during its first service when it took the field in response to the call of President Lincoln for three months men The people of Maryland and Virginia whom they were among held the men in high esteem They neither invaded any private house nor looted any abandoned home and these latter were in plenty as was discovered on the march to Bull Run Some showed that they had been vacated in great haste the owners evidently dreading to be caught within the Union lines or fearing for the safety of their families in the presence of the Yankee soldiery The first experience of the Sixtyninth regiment as soldiers was camping tent less at Annapolis and again along the line of the railroad leading to Washing ton conjoined with all the inefficiency for a commissariat that officers wholly ignorant of the duties of their stations could effect Officers and many of the men were proficient in the school of the soldier how to conduct themselves in the camp or on the march was a lesson to be learned The men proved apt pupils Meanwhile conditions were ac cepted as inevitably associated with soldier life criticism and condemnations of superiors were few and generally in the nature of an explosion of speech which excited laughter all around On arriving at Washington the regiment was camped1 in Georgetown College Here the men were expected to learn to eat nmeat onPridayPatler Mooney the chaplaini and the rector of St Bridgets church New York City was the mentor The men were hungry often andwhen told that it was all right for the soldier in the field to cat meat on Friday the chap lain was asked if it wasnt possible to have the meat served on another day Father Mooney said one of the soldiers our camp is just like an Irish souphouse in famine time plenty of meat on Friday but the devil a bit on any other day of time week Of course everybody laughed including Father MooneyFather Mooney cried another now that the humor was on many a good man in Ireland lives without meat for a week maybe we aristocrats could get along without it for one day in the week And so it went on The bread and coffee disappeared the meat remained un tasted by nearly the whole regiment for truth to say those of the men who were not Catholics entered into the full spirit of the fun and badinage Why dont you eat your meat Jimmy asked one nudging his neighbor Ah sure you wouldnt be asking Jimmy with his fine taste to be eating the meat thats only intended for common soldiers interposes another How the devil do you think Jimmy could ever run for Alderman if he eat meat on Friday remarked a third And thus went the pleasantry with lifesus taining variations of expression The commissariat was improved in Fort Corcoran as jyiy change could only be improvement But the cheeriness of the men no matter how gnawing the hunger never deserted them While short commons was the rule a company went out one night on a about Returning to Fort Corcoran in the morning the men sat down in front of the tents for a much desired breakfast By and by a piping hot loaf was served to each man coffee to follow Gen Sherman the brigade commander came along just then got a sniff of time newly made bread and had it all collected and carried back to the bakery to be redistributed to the men when it was cooled There was no audi ble protest Everybody accepted the in evitable One genius remarked Tis well man does not live by bread alone If he did wed all be dead didntArrab rebukiugly put in another ye hear the General say hot bread would destroy our stomachs He just wants to save us from indigestion that we may enjoy the good things hes going to give us And so it ever was Everybody was made merry or was mak ing merriment in his misery- A clerical friend of Father Mooney looking on at the men building Fort Corcoran remarked- A match for Southern chivalry is Irish shovelry- A correspondent of the Evening Ex press of New York of the time a private of C Company had already written that paper We are little better than an armed mob the other side doesnt differ On to Richmond has no fears for us Gayly the march was taken out of Fort Corcoran to the music of The Girl I Left Behind Me trilled and warbled Jl c j by an inspiring fifer accompanied by a couple of kettledrums The camp at Falls Church developed in a night two or three bad cases of rheumatism but the poor fellows kept with the regiment being attached to the commissary depart I ment As we passed through Fairfax a few small houses were ablaze reported to have been set on fire by the retreating Confederates and to contain some sick men but the men were saved iit was said at the time- Centreville was our next camping ground Snpperless and tentless the men gathered their blankets about them and were lulled to sleep by a pretty smart shower During the days here uniformed visitors from other regiments were frequent and active endeavoring to induce the men to demand their discharge from the army their tern of service it was contended having expired These were quickly informed that if they did not make themselves scarce they would be handed over to Gen Sherman the brigade commander This put a stop to the missionary work of organized dis organizers and the first Bull Run was made possible Gen McDowell himself pointed to the ForwardMarch of the Sixtyninth when a New York battery was demanding and receiving its dis charge almost in the presence of the enemyThe men of the Sixtyninth who en gaged in this effective action were all pri vates The only officer who had an inti mation of it was the chaplain Father OReilly The men held that the Seven tyfirst Regiment might demand its dis charge under the circumstances and that if such action should be taken by them and have its denouncers the men and their action were sure to have de fenders and apologists But should the Sixtyninth demand discharge under the same circumstances on the march to battle under a plea of expiration of term of service they would be branded as cowards and be held guilty of treason to the country and its cause that the native land of most of thin would cry Shame These privates recognized that they might be in the Sixtyninth by the sentiment of birthplace yet they were in the United States army by the obligation of citizen ship and a knowledge of their duty to the Union Neither Ireland nor Irishmen nor America nor Americans would be disgraced or dishonored by them On the morning of that fateful Sunday in July 1801 when the Sixtyninth was lined up to support Ricketts Battery which was to open the battle of Bull Run or Manassas Gen Sherman walked along the left of the regiment and asked for volunteers to scout and scour a flanking woods Who volunteers he sai- diI do I do came the answer quick ly front every throat as the men stepped forwardYou are the men I like to command spoke out the General and he detached a platoon or so for the work Again as the day advanced and the Sixtyninthwas ordered to a new posi tion it got there after a run of more than half an hour in a blazing sun cross ing Bull Run which was waist deep with a regimental frontscurrying through long grass of the swamp lands which fringed the Run and crowding up the bank beyond by a narrow path which scarcely admitted two men abreast and this in face of a fire which numbered its dead and wounded LieutCol Hagger ty was among the killed Three volleys silenced the enemy who made a rapid retreat from in front of the Sixtyninth In a little while Gen McDowell and staffrode up Time General was a de lighted and delightful looking person just then His countenance was radiant in smiles and lighted up with the fire of victorious battle Gesticulating with head and hand he said- I thank you boys you have won the day for me The General was loudly cheered a private remarking I would hurrah more if it was sundownit cant be much after 2 oclock and he looked up the surf blazing high in the heavens The Stars and Stripes and the green flag had been carried side by side in tri umph thus far throughout the dayand were now flying high together In the fresh Southern breeze Gen Sherman at this time had the green flag lowered and put away saying This is an Amer ican battlefieldthere is but one Ameri can flag The force of the Generals remarks was appreciated however much regretted and there was uncomplaining compliance It Was said at the time also that the removal of the green flag was due in part to the fact that it subjected the regiment to the special attentions of the Southern forces It made a con spicious mark The Stars and Stripes remained the inspiration for the further work of the day The rattle of distant and approaching infantry firing and occasional canton shots passing uncomfortably close over head caused Ricketts Battery to limber up and make off at a mad gallop to a better position and the Sixtyninth to fall in quickly Such of the men as heard the privates remarks following Gen McDowells announcement of VI- Ctory were at once of opinion that sun down was a safer time to hurrah for the day being won than the early afternoon Broken and breaking brigades in an other part of the field and the arrival of fresh Confederate forces madeitneces sary to bring the Sixtyninth again into action and from that time until the finish the Sixtyninth was under continuous fire fortunately for the men only some times well directed This change of position was effected by a quickmarch over open fields by the edge of woods from which the Southrons had been driven and along a dry run that in storms CONTINUED ON THIRD PA1CI tv MANILA BAY Interesting Letter From a Former Irish Resident of Louisville Inhuman Cruelty of the Philippine Insnrjfchts to the De

kinds As I am writing this letter a telegram has been received saying that Spain has asked for peace but it says that the war will go on the same as ever There was an engagement fought the other night I sat up and watched it through a fieldglass I could see the flashes of fire from the artillery and rifles There was only one American killed and over 200 Spaniards killed and wounded That is a report only I am writing this letter on a can non that Dewey knocked h out of and killed eleven men I did not have any writing paper so I thought I would tear a leaf or two out ofa Spanish record book and

In connection L with this we wish to assure our readers that the paper will shortly be greatly enlarged and improved FORGETFUL The Evening Times has been ii- a in bad humor lately and Thursday it

town it is furnished in his transfer of Peter Brown to the de tective force in order to make a place for his protege Frank Dugan as Superintendent of Gasoline Lamps at a salary of 75 a month in the

wonderful iI sights met his gaze there An active volcano on top ofa cliff 2000 feet high rising perpendicularly from the sea throwing out a whole Niagara of molten lava was one of the most wonderful Curious fish that came out of the water and went to sleep on the rocks whales that leaped out of the water and strange birds that walked around and at the approach of men flew at them to attack them

the way across thousands of miles under a blazing tropical sun their antagonists men whose very religion is the sword coming out victorious over the most skilled cavalrymen in the world and marvelous

between Mackin Council Y M I and the Young Mens Division A 0 H was played last Sunday at the League Park There was a very large attendance a great many lady admirers of the young men on both teams being present The First Regiment Band played appropriate airs as each side came to the bat and some attribute the defeat of the Hibernians to the fact that they would dance when the band played while others claim it was due to the rooting proclivities of the friends of Mackin Council However it was a game that could not but please the most obtuse fan being played with vim and good nature till the last man was out While Mackin Councilwon the game the men of the Division team were satisfied with the knowledge that their efforts were appre ciated and had resulted in the raising of a neat sum for the lady for whose benefit it was played Runs hits and errors and changes of men and positions were so numerous that we are compelled to omit the scores GRANDSTAND NOTIJS John Kilker done the best he

Celebration Benefits Derived From Existing Relations Between Labor and Capital Measures Suggested That Will BrIng Prosperity nnel1lorc- lInnllfnctorlcs RIGHT TO ORGANIZE NOW CONCEDED In accordance with the announcement in our last issue we publish this week the address delivered at Phoenix Hill on the evening of Labor Day by Mr Charles N Jacques The orator has for years made a study of the labor problem and we commend the perusal of his remarks to our readers In addition to being a stu dent he is an orator of ability with a pleasing address and would prove not only a firstclass representative of labor but of municipal and business interests- as well Mr Jacques said in substance Fully appreciating the honor to myself and my organization in being selected as orator of the day I feel called upon to ex ercise the constitutional right of every American citizen and frequently availed of by American workmen to register a kick I was deprived of the advantage of suggestions as to the issues I should discuss and when I requested such cour tesies I was dismissed with the remark 0 go long you know what to talk about Give us any old thing only dont make it too long But in an address upon labor one is embarrassed not so much for what fo say as what not to say by where to begin as where not to begin by want of a theory ask surfeit of contradictory theories by lack of authorities as a superabundance of conflicting authorities Under all forms of government all kinds of civilizations among all races of people in all countries and climes circumstances and conditions since the world began is the era and his tory of labor The field is wide and varied enough for any theory and the facts sufficient to prove almost anything one may choose to advocate The subject is as old as Adam But I am not going back to the days of Adam and attempt a speech covering the field of 4000 years for there are those here who would call time You are not here to listen to a long dissertation on labor a plea for its rights or a woeful tale of its grievances This is labors dayoil We have laid aside our work our cares our worries and contentions and with a friendly invitation to all labor union and nonunion to employers and business meneverybodywe have gath ered for recreation and congratulation and we have much to feel grateful for Living in the richest country under the only government of the people by the people and for the people with the freedom and rights of all men recognized and protected by law a country of boun teohS resources thrifty people whose push and industry have developed wil derness to lead the agricultural and in dustrial products of the world spreading out from a narrow strip along the Atlantic tiM it extends from ocean to ocean and Increasing in population from about 3 100000 to over 70000000 in a century and in which every right and opportunity of men for betterment is accorded to all regardless of class or condition where employment is more diversified hours of labor shorter wages higher the condition of workmen better their rights recog nized and opportunities greater than in any other land In this wonderful progress which has brought the United States to the front in the progress the wealth productiveness and civilization of the world American llabor has kept pace Today the American workman stands far ahead of his fel lowlaborers in other countries Time was when a laborers day of toil was from sun to sun Then it became ten hours Now it is recognized by the Government and by many private employers as eight hours and some workmen need only labor six or seven hours Wages have steadily increased In no country do workmen live dress enjoy the advantages of education comforts and pleasures of life as here own their homes become welltodo and have open to them every avenue of improvement and progress- In a country developing so fast circum stances have arisen where such privileges seemed for a time curtailed more how ever by periods of depression than any other cause and the struggle of labor has beenl1ardanliits condition impoverished though never universally so nor to the extent of other countries Labor continues to enjoy a steady bet terment of conditions But what is the subject of the most congratulation is the amicable relations between capital and industrial labor It was not so long ago that the right of labor to organize was de nied by capital Now after years of struggle no one will deny the right of labor to unify In that struggle much was lost While capital suffered labor always was worsted The strife engendered a spirit of hate and maliceseemed- to bring forth a spirit of destruction to property and life Whatever labor may have resorted to wider great provocation it is not alone at times in resorting to violence but when workmen forgot their duty as citizens violated the law andre sisted its authority they also forgot their obligations to organized labor violated its law and defied its authority for organ lied labor has never approved lawlessness f but always urges respect for law and au 0thorizes only lawful methods for redress of itces1iut these outbreaks re UidijI ojOUiif puWfc aUeuUoa to the a1 injustice of some employers to labor which must have been great to cause re sorts to violence and have taught labor the salutary lesson that only within the law can we hope for the cooperation of public opinion the only autocratic power in this country The love of the American people for their country is only equaled by their re spect for its law and while allowing the fullest liberty compatible with public peace and safety sympathizing ever with the oppressed forbearing with the erring they will not tolerate lawlessness but when the occasion requires manifest in a swift and unmistakable way that he who ignores the law forfeits its protection who violates the law incurs its penalties and who resists the law will be suppressed by its force He who advises the work men to ignore the law sends them on a fools errand at best who urges them to violate the law dooms them to proscrip tion and suffering and who induces them to resist the law is a murderer before the factIt also demonstrated to capital and labor that such conflicts were not produc tive of benefit to either that in strikes lockouts boycotts and black lists capital lost heavily and labor always got the worst of it It is about twenty years ago that labor extended the olive branch and said Lets arbitrateineet on equal ground asking only what is just and right and willing to concede as much II Capital was suspicious and labor by no means trustful but a proposition so fair appealed to the sense of justice of the American people Organized labor has all but unanimously adopted it and every leading labor organization in the country provides for the settlement of all differences by conference and arbitration reserving the right to strike only as a last and final resort For years the window glass workers iron workers newspaper printers and many other organizations and their employers have followed this course resujting in peaceful adjustment of differences improvement in conditions of the employer and shorter hours and better wages for labor and best of all in friendly relations and cooperation be tween employers and workmen And this good work is being pushed along In the past few weeks the United Typothetae composed of publishing printers organ ized some fifteen years ago to resist the aggressiveness of the Typographical Union and ever impervious to all friendly advances and propositions though still declining to yield the demand for nine hours to the employes in their branch of printing have at last consented to take the matter under consideration and ap pointed a committee to confer with the Typographical Union committee on some plan of settlement of this question a bone of contention for twenty years Andeven time railroad companies which four years ago reduced wages and short ened hours of employment pledging to restore both when conditions of trade permitted arc now doing so proving that soulless corporations can be trusted by labor and proving to them that labor which worked faithfully and waited pa tiently for four years can be relied on to fulfill its part of time agreement with no other bond save honor Of course there are and will continue to be strikes lockouts dud acrimonious contention between capital and labor but it only proves in this as in every other sphere of our national life that all do not keep up to the advanced order of things in this country the purely Amer can policy and method which in so short a time have enabled the American people to attain the leading position among the nations of the world One of the most attractive features of todays parade was the display of the manufacturers and business men in response to the invitation of labor to par ticipate but much as we appreciated their assistance in the parade of much more significance and of more benefit to both commercial industrial and labor in terests is the spirit that prompted this cooperation in our celebration of Labor Day If we can unite in celebrat ing why not in effcrts to relieve from burdens and better the conditions of each which affect more or less the interests of allThe city of Louisville despite its ad vantage of location convenience of trans portation nearness to sources of material is about the poorest city In the country for a workman to retain employment and earn a living and our State is fifty years behind the times We are prone to condemn the business men employers and wealthy because Louisville capital is not invested in manufactories to give employment to the people instead of being invested elsewhere and the Louisville workmen being compelled to leave here to obtain employment The realcause is the Legislatures of Kentucky have persistently legislated against every inter est pf Louisville instead encouraging its efforts to develop and increase in manufactures commerce and trade as the Legislatures most other States do for their chief cities tlmt while Kentucky Legislatures by burdensome taxation drive capital out of the State other States are welcoming it by favorable legis lation to locate and build factories give employment to their labor a market for their products and add to their trade and wealth Do you know that of the 109 counties in this State this Jefferson county pays about oneseventh of the entire State revenue and that every effort on the part of our business men and manufact urers for relief front this unjust burden has not only been refused by those who profess friendship for the workmen but has been actually made more oppressive The last Legislature seemed goaded to frenzy by malice toward Louisville protest against burdensome taxes wfls met by the declaration expressed in language more profane than elegant that this city ought to be made to pay all the State taxes everything asked by Louisville was contemptuously ignored anything that could be construed as likely to ben efit Louisville was rejected mud every measure no matter from what source or for whose benefit justspit would injure Louisville met with favor and support Xitd fed tfc y becqsao aaw ty wmld have J I I r QNIudKY IRISH AMERIOAN been next to impossible to carry on busi ness in the State Thanks to their failure to agree and to vetoes by the Gov ernor the worst of these measures failed but enough remain in force to deter capital from coming here to cause with drawal of capital already investedthereby reducing the amount of manufacture trade and employment for labor and finally Kentucky capital is driven toI seek investment in factories in other States giving employment to labor there while Kentucky labor goes without In this instance though the tax was in tended for capital and the object to increase the State revenue it is evident that capital escapes and labor loses em ployment and is left to bear the burden ofadditional taxes which must be levied to make up the deficit The city of Louisville in order to avoid becoming a mere trading post as an offset to unjust State taxation is offering a bonus of ex emption from city taxes to induce capital to come here or rather to remain here and invest in manufactories thereby in creasing the burden of every other tax payerOrganized labor protested against such unjust legislation but only met with rebuff and insult by these so called representatives of the people who denounced organized labor as being n monopoly banded together to keep up wages thereby increasing prices of its products to the peopleand they were deadset agin it The poor farmer seemed to be the sole object of their solicitude and his condition was to be bettered by antago nism to every interest of commerce trade manufactures labor utterly blind to the fact that as the result does not relieve but increases the tax burden of the people does not increase but reduces the State revenues so the farmer like labor will lose as it if to the people en gaged in commerce trade and manu factures that the farmer must sell his produce and that upon their prosperity depends his only hope of fair returns for his crops It is manifest that instead of joining in this war on our home capitalwhich retards the development and progress of the industries of our city and State to the detriment of the people and to labor most of all our duty as citizens and our interests as workmen dictate a directly opposite coursenot of conflict but of cooperation of capital and labor Let there be closer relations more con fidence and harmony of action with our Boardof Trade and Commercial Club and unity of purpose of the commercial manufacturing and labor interests all putting their shoulders to the wheel in a long pull a strong pull and a pull all together to relieve our city of tine bur dens which retard her advancement and to lift the old Commonwealth out of the rut at the tail end of the pro cession start her forward in time march of progress to a position nearer the front which by reason of lien resources and seniority she ought to occupy The failure of the Legislature to grant anything to labor except to restrict con vict labor was referred to and the evils of child labor its injustice to the child injury to labor business and the community discussed N Mr Jacques concluded Let us look more upon the bright side for after all life is what we make it to the cheerful there is ever a ray of hope to the mo rose all is gloom and illdespondency we forget the blessings and opportunities we enjoy and magnify our misfortunes Let us give less of our time thought and effort to the study of theories and attainment of ideals which
