The camp at Falls Church developed iu a night two or three bad cases of rheumatism; but the poor fellows kept with the regiment, being attached to the commissary department. 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, it was said. at the time. Centreville . was our next camping ground. Snppcrless and tcntless, 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 .term 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 disorganizes, and the first Bull Run was made possible. Gen. McDowell himself pointed to the "Forward March" of the Sixty-nint- h when a New York battery was demanding and receiving its discharge almost iu the presence of the enemy. The men of the Sixty-nint- h who engaged iu this effective action were all privates. The only officer who had an intimation of it was the chaplain, Father O'Reilly. The men held that the Seventy-fRegiment might demand its disirst 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 defenders and apologists. But, should the Sixty-nintdemand 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 tlism would cry "Shame!" These privates recognized that they might be in the Sixty-nint- h by the sentiment of birthplace, yet they were in the United States army by the obligation of citizenship 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 iu July, 1861, when the Sixty-nint- h was lined up to support Rickett's 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 said. 'I do," "I do," came the answer quick ly from every throat, as the men stepped forward. "You 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 Sixty-nint- h was ordered to a new posi tion, it got there after a run of more than half an hour in a blazing sun, crossing Bull Run, which was waist deep, with a regimental front,scurrying 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 Hagger-t- y dead and wounded. Lieut.-Co- l. was among the killed. Three volleys silenced the enemy, who made a rapid retreat from iu front of the Sixty-nintIn a little while Gen. McDowell and staff rode up. The General was a delighted and delightful looking person just then. His countenance was radiant iu smiles and lighted up with the fire of. victorious battle. Gesticulating with head and hand, he said: "I thank y.ou, boys; you have won the day for me." The General was loudly cheered, u private remarking: "I would hurrah more if it was sundown it can't be much after 2 o'clock;" and he looked up the sun, blazing high iu the heavens. The Stars and Stripes and the green flag had been carried side by side in triumph thus- - far throughout the day and 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 American battlefield there is but one American flag." The force of the General's remarks was appreciated, however much regretted, and there was uncomplaining compliance. It was said at the time also that the removal of the greeti flag was due in part to the fact that it subjected the regiment to the special attentions of the Southern forces. It made a 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 .cannon shots passing uncomfortably close overhead caused Ricketts' Battery to limber up and make oil at a mad gallop to a to better position and the Sixty-nint- h fall in quickly. Such of the men as heard the private's remarks, following Gen. McDowell's announcement of victory, were at once of opinion that sundown was a safer time to hurrah for the day being won than the early afternoon. Broken and breaking brigades in another part of the field, and the arrival of fresh Confederate forces, niade.it necesagain into sary to bring the Sixty-nint- h action, and from that time until the finish was under continuous the Sixty-nint- h fire fortunately for the men only sometimes well directed. This change of position was effected by a quick march over open fields, by the edge of woods from which the Southrons had been driven and along a dry run that in storms h h. con-spicio- SILVER JUBILEE Anniversary of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in-Thi- s A NEW SYSTEM Irish City.

WON THE DAY FOR QEN. M'DOWELL Willi me approacn or nexi spring or summer the Ancient Order of Hibernians will have existed in Louisville for twenty-fiv- e 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. Owing to the large number of Hibernians and 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 different celebrations were abandoned. For the foregoing reason the celebration in honor of the one hundredth anniversary of Ireland's heroes of 1798, which was to have been on a magnificent scale, did not take place. In fact the course pursued in Louisville was followed throughout the entire country. Now that the war is over, attention can be given wholly to home affairs, 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 respectable 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 strangers -- to our city.

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 members of the first division established here still living, and they would undoubtedly by gratified to see their labors of the past twenty-fiv- e years thus properly appreciated. There is no doufk that the Hibernian Knights would take a very prominent part and add a very interesting feature to the celebration of the anniversary.

The Sacred Heart picnic given last Monday was an immense success. It would be difficult and invidious to mention all who. contributed to make the picnic the splendid one that it was; but it would be almost treason to consign to silence the names of those who signally distinguished themselves Miss LUy Kir-le- y and her many beautiful assistants at the refreshment table, and, above all, Mrs. Mary Curran and the band of noble matrons who helped her at the dinner table. The officers, John P. Toner, President; Walter Hensley, Secretary; T. D. Clairet Treasurer, were faultless in their management; which made the picnic the most enjoyable and decided success of the whole season.

Additions were made to the membership and the prediction was made that besides being the oldest it will continue the largest division. . Division No. 1 will iu near 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. II. Hall. There will be no prearranged programme, no one knowing what part he will be called upon to take. Members of the order and their friends are invited to attend. The.e 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 the meeting of Division No. 1. The anxiety was caused by the recent publication of the following by Miss Miller, the Tattler: "One of the most strikingly handsome figures in the. Labor Day parade was that of Deputy Mike Tynan. He attracted general attention and kept-itime to the music like a veteran as the procession filed along. He got the tunes so grounded in his head that when the marchers disbanded Col. Tynan kept right straight ou, 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 frotu his Prisoners were tried and place of duty. 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. Sherman's march to the sea was not iu 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 had 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.' nis friends looked significantly at one another, and Deputy Napier remarked sadly that 'it seemed to be all day wid Moikc.'

Still were it a man he might have landed under the n was the "The gallant Sixty-ninth- " army designation during the civil war of And the famous New York regiment. 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, They held the men in high esteem. neither invaded any private house nor looted any abandoned home, and these latter were iu plenty, as was discovered on the inarch 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 Sixty-nint- h regiment as soldiers was camping tent-les- s at Annapolis and again along the line of the railroad leading to Washington, conjoined with all the inefficiency for a commissariat that officers wholly ignorant of the duties of their stations Officers and many of the could effect. men were proficient in the school of the soldier; how to conduct themselves in the camp or on the march was a lesson The men proved apt to be learned. pupils. Meanwhile conditions were acassociated with cepted as inevitably 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 camped in Georgetown College. Here the men were expected to learn to eat meat.ou Jfriday. . Father Mooney, the chaplain and the rector of St. Bridget's church, New York City, was the mentor. The men were hungry often, and when told that it was all right for the soldier iu the field to cat meat on Friday the chaplain was asked if it wasn't possible to have the meat served on another day. "Father Mooney," said one of the soldiers, "our camp is just like an Irish e in famine time plenty of meat on Friday, but the devil a bit on Of course any other day of the week." everybody laughed, including Father Mooney. "Father 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 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 don't you eat your meat, Jimmy?" asked one, nudging his neighbor. "Ah, sure you wouldn't be asking Jimmy, with his fine taste, to be eating the meat that's only intended for common soldiers," interposes another. "Ilbwthe 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 variations of expression. The commissariat was improved in Fort Corcoran, as. ny change could only be But the cheeriness of the improvement. 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 iu the morning, the men sat down in front of the tents for a much By and by a piping desired breakfast. hot loaf was served to each man, coffee to follow. Gen. Sherman, the brigade commander, came along just then, got a sniff of the 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 audible protest Everybody accepted the inevitable. One genius remarked: " 'Tis well man does not live by bread alone. If he did we'd all be dead." "Arrah," rebukiugly put in another, "didn't 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 he's going to give us." And so it ever was. Everybody was.made merry or was making 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 soup-housun-tast- Timothy J. Riordan, formerly of this city, but now at Cavite Arseual, Manila, has written an interesting letter to Mr. Thomas Langan, from which we are allowed to publish a few extracts. Mr. Riordan came to this country from Cork, Ireland, five years ago, and while a resident of Louisville made many friends. He is a member of Division No. 4 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, which pays the dues and assessments of all its members while in the service of Uncle Sam. The paper upon which his letter was written is of a very tough quality, and was taken from one of the books used by the Spanish Weather Bureau. The soldiers sent to the Philippines are much more fortunate than those whovent to Cuba. His letter was as follows Dkar Tom I take pleasure in writing to you these few lines hoping they will find you iu good health as this leaves me at present, thank God. Well, old man, I am now sleeping where the Spaniards used to enjoy themselves. I am quartered in the Governor General's building, in the navy-yarand, I tell you, it was a handsome place; but the insurgents tore it all to pieces; everything that they could lay hands on even the altars in the churches and also the graves of some of the Spanish Generals. Graves were opened and the bodies thrown around, and every Spaniard that they caught got his throat cut. They also killed the two priests to make it short, they destroyed everything. We have about 500 Spanish prisoners here and the insurgents got about 000 more. Every place, is a prison here even the Catholic churches and hospitals. We are getting ready to leave here and take the field today or tomorrow. The city of Manila is about a mile and a half from where we are, and it won't take us long to get there. Everything you read in the papers about the battle of Manila bay is all correct. There are eleven Spanish ships sunk right outside the navy-yar- d wall. We go out around them iu skiffs. They simply are a sight to see. Dewey did not lose a man, and three days after the fight they found a large shell in the bunkers of the Baltimore. I was talking to some of the sailors, and they do not look for praise, and they said it was a pretty hard fight for awhile, and that what they had done was nothing. The big monitor Monterey has just arrived and our fun. will soon start, as Dewey delayed the bombardment of the city till she got here. Well, old man, I want to tell you something about our trip. I was in San Francisco for a couple of weeks. It is a fine place sure. From Georgia, to Frisco, people met us at every depot, at all hours of the day and night, and we were covered all over with flowers and our coaches were filled with fruit of all 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 field-glasI 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 cannon 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 of a Spanish record book and write to you, as it will be a curiosity any way. How is Division No. 4 getting along? I wish them every kind of success. I, Well, I guess I have said enough. will conclude by sending you and all my friends my kindest regards. Timothy J. Riordan. P. S. It took us five weeks to get here from Frisco. We got here on July 31. It was Sunday, and we had a gay old Utile on the trip. There were five ships, with about 0,000 men. There were 050 men on the ship I was on, the. Ohio. Two firemen jumped overboard and committed suicide. This will show you how warm it was. T. J.R. d, s. KNIGHTS OP COLUMBUS.

Wages have ment to the people instead' of being steadily increased. In no country do invested elsewhere, and the Louisville workmen live, dress, enjoy the advantages workmen being compelled to leave here of education, comforts and pleasures of to obtain employment. The real cause life, as here; own their homes, become is the Legislatures of Kentucky have well-to-dand have open to them ivery persistently legislated against every interest of Louisville instead of encouraging avenue of improvement and progress.

But what is the their products and add to their trade and ' subject of the most congratulation is the wealth. Do you know that of the 109 comities amicable relations between capital and industrial labor. It was not so long ago in this State, this Jefferson) county pays of the entire State that the right of labor to organize was de- about nied by capital. Nowr after years of revenue, and that every effort on the struggle, no one will deny the right of part of our business men anil manufactlabor to unify. In that struggle much urers for relief front this unjust burden was lost. While capital suffered, labor has not only been refused by those who always was worsted. The strife engen- profess friendship for the workmen, but dered a spirit of hate and malice seemed has been actually made more oppressive? The last Legislature seemed goaded to to bring forth a spirit of destruction to property and life. Whatever labor may frenzy by malice toward Louisville; prohave resorted to under great provocation, test against burdensome taxes was met by it is not alone, at times, in resorting to the declaration, expressed, in language violence; but when workmen forgot their more profane than elegant, that this city duty as citizens, violated the law and re ought to be made, to pay all the State sisted its' authority, they also forgot their taxes; everything asked by Louisville obligations to organized labor, violated was contemptuously ignored; anything its law and defied its authority, for organ- that could be construed as likely to benized labor has never approved lawlessness, efit Louisville was rejected; and every but always urges respect for law and au- measure, no matter from what source or thorizes only lawful methods for redress for whose benefit, just so it would injure Louisville, met with favor and support, .of grievances. But these outbreaks in culling public attention to the feud, had they become law it would have JACQUES' y ss non-unio- been next to impossible to carry on bust 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 withdrawal of capital already invested, thereby reducing the amount of manufacture, trade and employment for labor; and, finally, Kentucky capital is driven to seek investment in factories in other States, giving employment to labor there, while Kentucky labor goes without. In this instance, though the tax was intended for capital and the object to increase the State revenue, it is evident that capital escapes and labor loses employment, and is left to bear the burden of additional 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 n bonus of exemption from city taxes to induce capital to come here, or rather to remain here, and invest in manufactories, thereby increasing the burden of every other taxpayer. Organized labor protested against such unjust legislation, but only met with rebuff and insult by these 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 people and they were "dead set agin it." The "poor farmer" seemed to be the sole object of their solicitude, and his condition was to be bettered by antagonism 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 is to the people engaged in commerce, trade and manufactures 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 capital which 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 course not of conflict, of capital and labor. but of Let there be closer relations, lhore con fidence and harmony of action witli our Board of 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 the burdens 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 the march of progress to a position nearer the front, which, by reason of her 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 commus nity discussed. 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 mowe rose all is gloom, and 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 may be possible with the millenium, and devote more to the present conditions to the study ot our government, laws, policy, history, people, resoures, opportunities, that we may appreciate and enjoy them; and as citizens aid in further developing and adding to the progress and glory of the best and mo?t liberal government, the grandest and richest country, the most generous and bravest people jn all the earth. LABOR NEWS. Meeting to Meet William C. Pomcroy. What Is Transpiring in Labor cles Here and Elsewhere. One of the merriest and most pleasing events of the year in local labor circles was the open meeting and reception of the Bartenders' Union Monday evening, the main purpose of which was to hear and entertain Mr. W. C. I'omeroy, of Chicago, and a number of prominent local labor men. Mr. Pomeroy, who is the Vice Presi dent of the national body, is visiting various cities in this and adjoining States for the purpose of organizing local unions and increasing the membership. President De Souchet presided over the business portion of the meeting and introduced the national officer to the mem bers and visitors in a few well chosen words. Mr. I'omeroy prefaced his remarks with a brief explanation of the workings of the unions in Chicago, and referred to the remarkable growth of the barkeepers' association. He said that while two years ago there was only one local union in the country, there are now 101. The order is now growing more rapidly than ever before. He said and predicted that it will ultimately have the largest membership of any of the national labor bodies. Among the good things he had to tell the Louisville people was the fact that the Waukesha Water Company had agreed to build a home for the aged and infirm members of the Bartenders' Union at Waukesha at u cost of $10,000 and to donate a certain per centagc of its profits to the maintenance of the institu tion. The conditions were most favorable and the proposition will doubtless be accepted by the national convention, which meets at Syracuse next July. After Mr. Pomeroy had finished, Col. John Whallen was called upon and made speech that created the greatest en thusiasm. Among other things, he stated that he always had the best wishes for organized labor and he wanted only union men in his employ. He also said that he would have the union sign hung in his house the next evening. Tlie social part of the session was pre sided over by Alderman Knecht, who also acted as toastniaster. That he filled the position in a most pleasing and ac ceptable manner is attested by all of the large number present. The hit of the eveuing was made by Mike Hickey, of the Paradise, who assured the members that, while Col. Whallen would have the union sign up the next evening, he would not wait that long, but would have his in place in the morn ing. Councilmen Graft and Reiss were here called upon and made addresses that were greatly appreciated. Mr. John Ropkc also made a humorous address, which kept all in the best of spirits. There were remarks of an inter esting and instructive nature made by James McGill of the Central Labor Union, and a number of other speakers. In the meantime refreshments, Roman punch and cigars had been served with the greatest liberality, and at a late hour the meeting adjourned, all being loud in the praise of ( the Barkeepers' Union and their generous hospitality. Messrs. William M. Higgins and Ed ward P. Owen are making the necessary arrangements for their trip to Syracuse, N. v., where tney will represent the printers of Louisville. The strike statistics of Germany for the year 1897 show that 03,119 working-me- n were involved in 678 strikes. Of these 330 were won by the workingmen and 248 by the employers. The number of strikers that were compleftly successful was 273. Those that were partially successful numbered 140. The sixth biennial convention of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen opened in Toronto, Out., Monday. There were some 600 delegates present at the opening, and 200 more arrived during the day. There were 1,600 dele gates and visitors in the city. The con vention will be in session until Wednes day or Thursday of next week. The weavers of Borden City (Mass.) Cotton Mills Nos. 1 and 2 have been compelled to strike against a reduction of wages. The weavers of the No. 3 mill have been on strike for three weeks for the same cause. Tke strikers number between COO and 700. Work in the weav ing departments of the three mills has been suspended. The spinners and card' ers are likely to leave work in support of the weavers. Mrs. Florence Kelley, of Hull House, Chicago, is probably as well posted on sweatshops as any individual in the coun try. She says that little good may be expected from the law proposed in Illinois which requires that alt sweatshop goods shall be tagged as such. A similar effort had been made in New York, she said, but it had been a practical failure. She insists that no law will be of ma terial benefit in stopping the sweatshop evil except it is made a sanitary measure and 'the existence of the sweatshop is strictly prohibited. Edwin F. Catley has been elected by the New Albany Typographical Union as delegate to the biennial meeting of the International Typographical Union,.to be held at Syracuse, N. Y., next month. Mr. Catley has represented the New Al bany union at the International Union three times. He is one of the oldest members of the printers' union at New Albany, having joined the union in 1857, and is an ardent union labor man. Mr. Catley, is a Democratic nominee to repre sent New Albany in the next Indiana Legislature, and should receive the support of every trades unionist in that city.

It is entirely separated from St. Michael's parochial school, and is under the protection of St. Joseph Calasauctius. The old dilapidated hall adjoining the school has been treated to' a new floor, new painting and a general renovation, and is now a handsome room. A hydrant and sink have been placed in the rear of the room, and everything done for the convenience and happiness of the children.
