KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN IVOLUME LNO 13 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY OCTOBER 1 1898 PRICE FIVE CENTSI RIORDANS Graphic Description of the Battles Fought in the Philippines Five Louisville Boys Together nUll They Hurt a Gay Old Time Our Soldiers Cheerful Unde- the Greatest Dangers and Hardships TIIR SPANIAADS WERE VERY BRAVE i While the telegraph and letters furnis- a great deal of news concerning our soldiers 1 in Cuba very little is heard as to those who are at Manila probably because of the long distance and the time it takes letters to reach here Mr T J Riordan formerly of Louisville and well known in IrishAmerican circles is now in the Philippines being a member of Company A Eighteenth iin fantry From Military Station 1 near Manila he writes a very interesting letter to Mr John Dolan of this city giving a most graphic description of the situation at the time of writing The letter is writT ten from Military Station 1 Philippines under date of August 23 and contains so much news not heretofore made public that we give it in full The letter is as follows being addressed to Mr John Dolan DKAR JoanI just heard that a boat was going back to the United States today and would take thet mail back with it so I thought I wouldwrite you a few lines hoping to find you enjoying good health as this leaves me at present thank God Well old nun we had a hot time in this old town on the T3th just ten days ago We also had a hot time on the night of the 6th It was a little tough but we gotthe upper band in about an hour and a half but it was fighting for awhile cannon roaring shells bursting rifles cracking and bullets whistling on all sides When they attacked us it was in the dark of night and about 10 oclock for the Span lards did not have nerve enough to come out in daytime and make a ROod square gartie vliippe3T3 Oiir lencliesand the Spaniards were about COO yards apart so close that we could see them working on their breastworks but our officers would not let us fire on them and every time they would see a head in our trenches you would hear the crack of a Mauser and the whirr of a bullet as it would go by over our heads One of our fellows put his hat ona pole stuck it up in the air and a storm of bullets passed through it and cut the pole He would not take 1000 for that hat how He says it is a good relic and he will keep it On the night of ti 6th when the fight was over it took the Spaniards an hour and a half to carry away the dead and wounded The last report we heard was that the Spaniards lost from 200 to 400 men that night but I tell you they were game for they charged our trenches three times only to be driven back by our rifles and cannon But still they came back and made an at tack in two columns on what they thought was a weak spot in our trenches and here is where we slaughtered them They fell back in confusion A few more volleys into them as they went put n stop to their fighting for seven days On Fri day night August 12 just after supper we got orders to fill our canteens withl water or coffee but I took the water w also got two days grubhardtack and bacon fried On the morning of the 13thI the bugle called us up at 430 We took breakfast and got ready packed up everything and left them in ourtents with aI guard over them We started out for the front at 630 with battleflags waving and the bands playing the Star Spangled Ban ner and to suit the whole business and make it look more like war the rain came down in torrents for about two hours We had to wade through mud qnd water knee deep and sometimes up to our waists but we kept on going singing and whistling There were five of us Louisville boys together and we had a gay eld time Well we arrived at the trenches about 10000 strong and were all in our places by 8 oclock We had an hour to rest and dry up About 9 oclock I got up and was rubbering over at the Spanish trenches when the roar of a cannon fro tics Spanish forts made me and othe drop to our knees and grasp our gun quicker than it will ever be done again The battle was started then for sure The shells and bullets were flying over our heads for fare you well One shell was so close that it cut the branches off bamboo tree over our heads and many face turned pale but it was changed in a second to joking and cursing You would think the fellows were wranglingover a game of cards It got so after awhile you could not hear anything but the roar of canno- and the cracking of rifles and the burst ing of shells from Deweys fleet as they would hit the Spanish fort The rattling of the rapidfire guns was something terrible It eased up a little and the order to advance was given there was a mighty cheer and a rush over the trenches an when we got in the opening we could see that the fort and gun that were causing us so much trouble were captured and th American flag flying from the top Everybody wasrildI fos awhile We ad k t rr vanced in skirmish line and I tell yott- ime bushes were full of Spaniards for tl bullets flew thick and fast We turned into an open rice fieldnot a bit of store 1 ter there to hide us froin the bullets Directly there came a volley from thcI Spaniards and we all laid in this rice field water covering us allover and nothing but our heads could be seen We got orders to fire two volleys andi charge the trenches We did and when we got there there was no Spaniards to be seen but some dead and dying ones II I dell you John what 1 saw I never si I forget I saw all I stepped down fro the top of the trenches a Spanish officer with his head and shoulders blown tort pletely away and blood and legs and fe110wllaid on a stretcher with a bullet through j his throat the other Spaniards left him in their hurry to get away He died be fore we left We formed into sets o fours and got into line of column and started to march for the city and forts on the inside We divided the volunteers went in through the right of the city and1 others went along the beach to the left tenand by the guns of the Spanish forts under cover of Deweys ships and we 1the Eighteenth took the center and did not go very far for a shower of bullets passedaround us We laid low for awhile andstarted again we reached the walls in about twenty minutes Such clteerin andshouting you never heard in all your life for on a flagstaff on the fort fronting the bay was a white flag and Manila had surrendered all the arms big guns Gov ernment property and all the Spanish army and officers arc prisoners ofwar and disarmed but the officers arc allowed their swords and arc on parole Some of the Spanish soldiers say they lost 250 killed and wounded but I guess it is three or four times that much I think I have said enough for the present Only one thing we are all 1po licemen now instead of soldiers in the city Send me the Kentucky Irish American and some other Louisville newspaper if it wont be too much trouble I will do as much for you when I get back I would have given 1000 if you had been here to see the bombard ment by Deweys ships Give my kindest regards to all the boys We may 1be back by Christmas There are all kinds of rumors here Some sayvie writ be stationed at Honolulu I

Progressive Young Democracy Has Always Stood hy time Can didates and Principles of Partyf ISTANDS HIGH AMONG THE LAWYERS With this issue we present to our read ers the portrait of the Democratic candidate for Congress from the Louisville district lIon Oscar Turner nominated at the late Democratic convention by an thegCampaign Committee has been named Mr Turner will put into effect arrange i IION TuiZlL R t meats for making an active and most thorough canvass of the district To our reporter he said that he is per fectly satisfied with the situation as it at present exists and believes that were the election to take place now his majority could not fall below 7000 and there is no reason why this majority can not be in creased to at least 10000 by November Healso stated that he will not only re ceive the entire Democratic vote but many prominent and influential Repub licans have tendered him their support That Mr Turner will prove an able and representative member of Congress there can be no doubt Concerning his ability and qualifications for the position no higher tribute could be paid than the following which appeared recently in the New Era of this city Mr Turner is a sterling young Democrat and his nomination is a victory for the young Democracy of the city and county From a personal and political standpoint no better nomination could have been made Mr Turner is a lawyer by profession and has been engaged in the practice of law for several years He ranks among the ablest members of the Louisville bar and long ago attained a standing in the courts and among his fellow barristers of which many an older practitioner might well be envious He has been a profound student of the law since early youth and his ample knowl edge and aptness of research have won him substantial victories in a number of hardfought legal battles Though modest in demeanor and studious of habit he has acquired a large circle of friends and he is best esteemed by those who have known him longest and most intimately These many friends know him to be a than of firm convictions of scrupulous integrity faithful to his friends true to principles and honest and just in all the transactions of life Though fixed in Iris opinions he is not intolerant and he numbers among his friends met of all shades of political belief many of whom regardless of party will support him at the polls in November From a Democratic standpoint Mr Turners record is all that could be asked by the most exact ing party man A Democrat from his cradle be has never turned a deaf car lo the call of his party but has ever been found battling in the front ranks for its principles and its nominees In the trying times of 1800 when iic seemed as if the very life of the Democratic party was threatened by foes within asjvell as by enemies without air TuMtCwM ong of f Jj jIt fA V or t the few brave mien inj the Fifth Congres sional district who upheld the banner of William J Bryan and gave unstintedly of his time and moneyto combat the com bined forces of plutocracy and corporate greed In the even darker days of 1805 Mr Turner was one of the Spartan band of frce silver Democrats who stood up boldly and unflinchingly for the faith of the fathers who kept the campfires burn ing and time banner at the front and whose work of selfsacrifice was mainly instrumental in bringing about the ulti mate triumph of the old guard of Democracy and the fundamental principles for which they stood out so faithfully in sunshine and in storm Mr Turner took part in all the crucial 4 Battles of the free silyer Democracy H voted andworked for the Hon P Wat iHardin for Governor he stumped the district for time Icon William J Bryan he was the friend and helper of the Hon Jpe C S Blackburn jn the memorable struggle before the Legislature at Frankfort and he was an active worker in thecampaign of 1897 when Samuel J Shackelford was nomi nated und elected Clerk of the Court of Appeals Mr Turner comes of sturdy Democratic stock Hisfather represented the First Congressional district in Congress for many years and was the most conspicuous figure fora quarter of a cen tury in the politics of Western Kentucky The elder Turner was rest known for his devotion to the cause of the common peo ple He never faltered in their defense 1 ItI and no opposition or influence was sufficiently powerful or persuasive to swerve him from advocating the interests of the masses As a Democrat he was foremost in party councils for years and as a Congressman he made a reputation that was national Like his distinguished father Mr Turner believes that all power is in herent in the people Recognizing that public office is a public trust it would be his highest ambition should he be elected to Congress to faithfully serve the best I I interests of his constituency His sym pathies are with the great struggling I masses of humanity He honors the dig nity of labor and respects the rights of i every man no matter how humble who is making an honest effortin the struggle of life lie recognizes the brotherhood of mankind arid upholds the Jeffersonian principle of equal rights to all and exclusive privileges to none He favors the weak as against the strong and if hon I jeallousty chargeIthat would reflect dishonor can be laid at the door of Oscar Turner His public and private records alike will bear the closest scrutiny He goes into the con test cleanhanded and that he will come out of it with record and reputation still untarnished admits of no sort of doubt The Democracy of the Fifth Congressional district may safely trust its interests in the hands of such a standard bearer Animated by the one desire to serve his country and his party wisely and accept ably he goes into the canvass with every qualification to command the respect and support of the honest voter who casts his ballot with an eye single to the welfare of the people- CATHOLIC BENEVOLENT LEOION There is a

the Univer sity of California by Jennie Flood Given in Honor of Her ranter Memory Nohle Disposition of Wealth AecnIlUulntccl Fortunes ROMANCE ABOUT VOUNO ORAN Californias resplendent sun shines even brighter since Jennie hood has given three millions to the University of the Golden State It is a gift worthy of a princess It is a tribute to the memory of her father the millionaire whose life ambition was to endow some great insti tution with a fortune says the New Yor OSCAR i Herald The property given consists of her palatial mansion and grounds at Menlo Park together with fourfifths of the capital stock of the Bear Creek Water I CompanyThe involves a great sacrifice It t includes a home where Miss Flood has spent much of her life and through associations she has come to love the place and its surroundings It is the country home where she found sweet quietude and needed rest Because she loved it she bestowed it on the great university evidently fulfilling the wishes of herI father whom she nursed for years and was by his side when death came to hunt at Heidelberg in Germany Since the death of her mother a year ago Miss Flood found the great house too lonely In former days it was the favorite home of mother mind daughter and was seldom closed Since Mrs Floods death the doors have been seldom open The interior has remained undisturbed Miss Flood preferring to have everything left in the rooms exactly as during her lifetime and in giving the property to the university she requests that there be no changes made when it is taken possession of by the institution AH the statuary audI priceless works of art are to remain in place and the imperial residence is to beI preserved as a monument to the memory of her deannotlterIThis gift of the Menlo Park property I came as a surprise to the State University It includes the mansion with its orna mental grounds of more than 500 acres and an additional tract of 2400 acres and Bear Creek Water Company stork ofI much value and yielding a steady in comeMr John W Mackay for years associated with Mr Flood says that the whole property is worth more than 3000000 the mansion itself costing over 1000000 It was erected more than twenty years ago and considered among the finest dwellings in the world It is a palace standing in the center of a 600acre park brought to the highest state of perfection by the most skillful landscape gardeners of this country and Europe Forty men are constantly em ployed improving the grounds Menlo Park was always open to the public Any one could drive about in manI l reminding travelers of those picturesque I countryseats of the nobility in England The architectnreseems a combination of 0 11- I the best English and FrenchJ designs The hardwood floors and the intetd splendor of the finish of the dwelling a- ma matter of fame Like most Of the Cal1A ifornia houses it was constructed with view of resisting injury by earthquakes The outside is of wdod resting on stone foundations One of Miss Floods requirements iis alwayskeeppaintityearss exactly as it was when her parents resided within that domestic sanctuary To every request by Miss Flood the Regents reiterated their desire to comply in spirit and letterJust what use the Regents will put the mansion to has not been determined but Miss Flood is to be consulted during her lifetime on all questions The house i arranged for a summer or winter school and for scientific gatherings of various timTe It is cheering to state that this mag nificent place is selfsupporting The water company stock alone which is in cluded in the property yields an annual income of 8000 It is thought that the Regents will retain the stock only selling the outlying lands and judiciously in vesting the money for the benefit of the university The interest will be usedI principalk with Miss Floods gift is that this property i in the neighborhood of Stanford Uni versity Miss Flood and Mrs LelandI Stanford are the best of friends yet thatt she should rear a rival of the university founded by the late Senator Stanford and1 fostered by Mrs Stanford creates no lit tic surprise The generally accepted theory is thatt Jennie Flood desired her home to be come n distinctive monument to the memory of her parents not to be over shadowed by the fame and magnificence of Senator Stanfords great institution att Palo Alto A portion of the landadjoin ing the Flood estate at Menlo Park iis owned by John W Mackay and it iis said he may also contribute the property to the Stale University so handsomely endowed by Miss Flood Miss Floods gift was unexpected None of the Regents dreamed of receiving millions for the university Itt needed money and new blood while the Stanford University seemed to be having everything its own way with the millionsI of the Stanford estate contributing fromi time to time to funds already large Miss Flood is a modest quiet woman very sincere and thoughtful life her father whose ability as a financier

halfmast on the principal business houses in San Francisco His estate was valued at 10000000 Time wonderfuli story rivaling the fictions of the Arabian Nights has often been narrated yet it iis ever fresh and new It has been told how James C Flood a New York boy went to California iin the forties and with William S OBrien opened a little refreshment place in San Francisco called The Auction Lunch It soon became n famous place for miners Tips and news of importance could be picked up there almost any day by those on the inside Mr Flood a business man by nature a good listener silent absorbing andI industrious soon possessed mining infor mation of value and quietly bought shares of stock and interests in mines in a small way with his limited capitaland the firm began making money Presently it was whispered that Flood and OBrien were growing rich In 1864 John W Mackay a practical miner who used to work in a shipyard in New York and went to the Pacific coast a poor boy to take his chances with the rest of the heroes of 49 entered the com bination Flood and OBriens partner Walker retired and Mr Mackay known as Honest John and who had become an expert miner in the mountains of Nevada earnestly advocated the claims of the Virginia City region He had studied the Nevada rocks and knew what he was talking about His advice was followed In six years they took out nearly 200000000 in bullion Mr Mackays judgment and wisdom were marvelously vindicated Mr Flood was a natural financier He saw still more wealth ahead He projected the Nevada Bank which became oneC of the institutions of San Francisco with a paid up capital of 10000000 In 1879 it was reported that Mr Flood hind retired from the stock market In 1880 it was reported that he was about to settle in New York that he had sold his share in the Bonanza mines to Mr Mac kay In that same year he commenced building the Flood mansion of dark brown stone on Knob lull San Francisco It stands there today overlooking the bay and the blue waters of the Golden Gate like an Italian palace towering on a mountain side The city stretches away on every hand covering what were brown desolate hills when Flood and OBrien ine 49 first began business in their little corner grocery store down by the water front While millions came to them from the mountains fortunes vanished at the bank The great wheat deal of 1889 in volved a loss

friends and the public are warned that he has no connecti with or authority to represent t Kentucky Irish American TURKEYS ANSWER In reply to the demand of our Minister to Turkey Oscar Straus for damages for the massacre of the American missionaries and the de struction of their property the Stil1j ton positively refuses to consider i the claim He says the killing and the destruction were the work ofa disorderly mob and that the Gov ernment of Turkey does not inst- S tr the lives of foreigners residing iin its dominions any more than it does the lives of its own subjects He says the relatives of the murdered missionaries can obtain redress by instituting suit in the Turkish1 courts agate st the guilty parties He here uses identically the same line of argument that Secretary Ja- G Blaine used against the Italian Government when the eleven members h of the Mafia Society were killed by a mob in New Orleans It will be remembered that in the fall of 1891 Chief of Police Hennessy of New Orleans was murdered ban y organized band of Italian assas sins members of the Mafia Society t After a trial in which several of the jurors were said to have been bribed the culprits were acquitted The people obNew Orleans were so enraged at this travesty of justic- that they went in broad daylight to where the accused were confined and killed the ehtire lot eleven iinI all The Italian Government through its accredited Minister to this country Baron Fava immediately I demanded the punishment of the ringleaders of the mob by the Federal Government and a llarge indemnity be paid to families of tin murdered men President HarrisonI and Secretary Blaine at once in formed the Italian Minister that they could not punish the ring leaders of the mob as the crime could only be punished by the State authorities of Louisiana They also said that they could not insure the lives of foreigners temporarily re siding in this country The Italian Government refused to accept this view of the situation as all their dealings were with the Federal authorities of Washington and for awhile it looked as though war would result The matter was finally settled by President Harrison sending to the families of the murdered men 25000 to be distributed equally Nevertheless President Harrison and Secretary Blaine both insisted that the money was not as an indemnity but should be considered merely as a gratuity Short ly after this affair with Italy several to of our sailors belonging to the man ofwar Baltimore were killed by a mob in Valparaiso Chili The Chilian authorities attempted to use the same defense which the United States made against Italy and which the Sultan is now using but the United States refused to enter 1tamn any such explanation ii- A i heavy indemnity was demand ed from the Chilian Government and a large naval and land force tiwere assembled to enforce the claim The Chilians in view of these prep arations yielded and paid the in denmity Now whether this Government can pursue the same tactics successfully with the Turkish au thorities is a question Some of the jjingoes papers are advising the Pres to y C r v ident to send a fleet against Con1 staninople They seem to forget that Turkey has a fine navy and an army of over three hundred rtes sand of the best drilledand most ferocious soldiers in the world ACToieIt is not often that Great Britain in her dealings with weaker nations can be praised and her example held up for these United States but her voluntary relinquishme- nts of Ionian islands in 1864 must be commended especial ly as all the islands in the Mediterranean sea are much sought after on account of their strategic andcommercial value Since the breaking up of the Roman Empire the Ionian islands were first governed by one power then another until the year 1815 when in the shuffle caused by the downfall of Napoleon they came under the domination of Great Britain Con plots home rule which England has so steadfastly refused to grant to Ireland was given the Ionian Everything was done to promote longsto become a part of the new Hell nic kingdom which had been e tablished in 1821 So determined were the Ionians to throw off Eng lish rule and to join the Greek Government toward which they naturally leaned on account of homogeneity of race religion and language that many uprisings took place though they were speedily suppressed Gladstone visited the islands to see if he could not reconcile the na waes warmly welcomed on account of his wellknown sympathy for the Greek nation and especially for his pro found knowledge of Greek literature But he did not succeed i allaying the popular discontent Finally the English Parliament iinI 1864 voluntarily ceded the troublesome islands to the Greeknation The United States in its dealings with Porto Rico and the Philippines should pursue the same conciliatory course that England used in dealing with the Ionian isles ABOUT THE ISLANDS President Schurman of Cornell University has joined the host of other bright minds who have denounced the present mania among our public men to grab all the colo nial possessions of poorold Spain Iii an address before the students of the university he said that the cardinal feature of this andall I other republican countries was that all Governments derive their just 1 powers from the consent of those governed He says that we are now playing the role of a despotic monarchy in our dealings with Hawaii Philippine Islands Porto Rico and Cuba In Hawaii thee preachers and their sons who went convert the heathen did not fail also to convert the possessions of t the simple islanders to their own use During the last few years these men have succeeded in stirring up an agitation against theII lawful authorities and in spite of the wishes of the majority of the islanders succeeded in inducing Congress to declare a protectorate over the island Porto Rico has been declared a part of this country without the Porto Ricans being consulted A part of theil Philippines will also be seized These countries will be treated pretty much as our American Indians have been cheated and robbed of their lands then when remonstrances- are made an army quickly raised shoot them down W4entthese in e i new Indians will revolt against us they will be served in like manner The Filipinos are tribes of half civilized peopleno two tribes in the same stage of civilization Those that are governed at all take to a paternal formsuch as Spain ex ercised The best American and British Consuls have borne testi mon to the humanizing and civilizing effectsof Spanish rule The Scientific American says that some parts of the islands the only white man to be seen is the priest He is their architect engineer ciVIa governor spiritual adviser and father all combined And yet among them everything worked harmoniously Our Government prup vided for will fail when it comes to handling these people as futumi events no doubt will show CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGN The great number of Republicans who are opposed to Hon Walter Evans have named as their Gaud date Mr James Hambrick who is well known throughout the district and will receive a large number of votes The abuse heaped upon him and his friends by the Commercial has only added to his popularity and with two Republicans seeking the office there is no reason why Mr Turner should not receive an overwhelming majority Because of the generally mixed state of affairs there are those who are advocating the bringing out of a candidate by the trades unionists and organized labor of the city but there is little likelihood of this being done The workingmen could at any time secure the election ofone of their number with proper organi timecundertakesto do so this year All things

Tho Glorious Performance olf the Irili Brigade of Chl cago 111 Cant Gleason and the Brilliant and Reckless Charge of 1HisMen SURGEON AND CHAPLAIN RECOVERED The brave defense of Lexington Mo by Col James Mulligan and the Irish Brigade of Illinois is one of the most glorious performances of the whole civil1 war The best account of this deed twain a speech delivered by Col Mulligan at a public reception given to the brave IrishAmerican General by the citizens of Detroit Mich November 29 1861 a short time after his release from a South ern prison Let me briefly relate said the brave General the circumstances of a littl affair that happened to us in Missouri Just outside the limits of Jefferson City overlooking the broad Missouri were encamped two regiments over which floated twin bannersthe stars of America and the harp of Ireland Under these twin banners lay as happy a regiment as was ever collected together It was the Irish Brigade of Chicago At the hour of midnight it received an order to march to the relief of Col Marshalls cavalry then threatened by the enemy and with them to cut their way through to Lexing ton and hold it at all hazards The next morning saw the Irish Brigade with its face set toward Lexington We started with forty rounds of ammunition and three days rations and advanced for nine daysThus we went on until at length we ar rivedwithin two miles of Lexington The brigade pitched its camp and pre parations were made for advancing into the city We went in with our solitaryr six pounder The men had traveled nine days by forced marches yet they never looked better On arriving at Lexington we found Col Marshalls cavalry and a few home guards On September 10 a letter arrived from Col Peabody saying that he was retreat ing from Warrensburg twenty live miles distant and that he was being pursued with 10000 men A few hours afterward Col Peabody with the Thirteenth Mis 4 souri entered Lexington We then hadI 2780 men in garrison dud forty rounds f cartridges At noon on the 11th we com menced throwing up our first intrench ments In six hours afterward the enemy opened their fire Col Peabody was or dered out to meet them Two six pounder s were planted to oppose the enemy and placed in charge of Capt Daniel Quirk who remained at his post till daybreak It was a night of fearful anxiety None knew at what moment the enemy would be upon the little band and the hours passed in silence and anxious waiting So it continued until morning when the chaplain rushed into headquarters saying that the enemy were pushing for ward They were met by Company K of the Irish Brigade under Capt Quirk who held them in check until Capt Dillons companyof the Thirteenth Missouri drove them back and burned the bridge That closed our work before breakfast Immediately after six companies of the Thirteenth Missouri and two companies of Illinois cavalry were dispatched iin search of the retreating enemy They engaged them in a cornfield fought with them gallantly and harassed them to such an extent as to delay their progress in order to give time for constructing intrenchments around the camp on College Hill This had the desired effect and we succeeded in throwing upI earthworks three or four feet in height This consumed the night and was continued during the next day the outposts still opposing the enemy and keeping them back as far as possible At 3 oclock in the afternoon of the 12th the engagement opened with artillery The guns within the intrenchments immedi ately replied with vigor Within an hour a shot from one of pur guns dismounted their largest piece a twelvepounder and exploded a powder caisson This achievement was received with shouts of exultation by the beleaguered garrison The enemy retired aI distance of three miles At 7 oclock the engagement had ceased and Lexington was ours again Next morning Gen Par sons with 10000 men at his back sent in a flag of truce to a little garrison of 2700 asking permission to enter the townI and bury his dead The request was willingly granted and we cheerfully assisted in burying the al- len foe On Friday the work of throwing up intrenchments went on It rained all day and the men stood knee deep iin the mud building them On Friday Saturday and Sunday we foragedseven days provisions for two thousand seven hundred men A quantity of powder was obtained and then large cisterns were filledwith water The men made car fridges in the cellar of the college building and cast one hundred and fifty rounds of shot for the guns at the foun dries at Lexington During the little respite the evening gave us we cast our shot made our cartridges and stole our own provisions All this time our pickets were constant ly engaged with the enemy and we were well aware that 10000 men were threat cuing us and knew that the struggle wasI to be a desperate one Earthworks hadl ben reared breast high including an arepoS fifteen to eighteen acres and fur e I rounded by a ditch Outside of this wasi a circle of twentyfive mines and still1 further down were pits During the night of the 17th we werei getting ready for the defense and heard1 the sounds of preparation in the camp of the enemy for the attack on the morrow Father Butler went around among the men and blessed them and they rever ently uncovered their heads and received his benediction At 9 oclock on the morning of the 18th the drums beat to arms and the terrible struggle com mended The enemys force had been increased to 28000 men and thirteen pieces of artil lery They planted two batteries in front one on the left one on the right and one in the rear and openedwith a terrible fire which was answered with the utmost bravery Our spies had in formed us that the rebels had intended to make one grand rout and bury us in thei trenches of Lexington The batteries opened at 9 oclockand for three days they never ceased to pour deadly shot upon us About noon the hospital was taken It was situated on the left outside of the intrenchments They besieged the hospital took it and from the balcony and roof their sharpshooters poured a deadly fire within our intrenchments It contained our chaplain and surgeon and 120 wounded men It could not be allowed to remain in possession of the enemy A company of the Thirteenth Missouri was ordered forward to take the hospital They started on their errand but stopped at the breastworks A com pany of the Fourteenth Missouri was sent taskeThe Montgomery Guard Capt Gleason of the Irish Brigade were then brought out The commander admonished them that the others had failed and with a brief exhortation to uphold the name they bore gave the word to chargeI The distance was 800 yards They started out from the intrcjichments first quick then double quick then on a run then Taster The enemy poured a deadly shower of bullets upon them but on they wentn wild line of steel and what iis better than steel human will They stormed up the slope to the hospital doo and with irresistible bravery drove the enemy before them and hurled them far down the hill beyond At the head of those brave fellows pale as marble but not pale from fear stood the gallant officer Capt Gleason He said Come on my brave boys and in they rushed But when their brave Captain returned it was with a shot through the cheek and another through the arm and with but fifty of the eighty he had lead forth The hospital was in their possession This charge was one o the most brilliant and reckless in all his tory and to Capt Gleason belongs the glory After this charge the fire of the enemy lagged We were in a terrible situation Toward night the fire increased and in the evening word came from the that if the garrison did not surrender be fore the next day they would hoist the black flag at their cannon and give us no quarter Work was sent back that When we asked for quarter it would be time Id settle that It was a terrible thing to see those brave fellows mingled andwith no skilled hands to bind their gapin wounds The surgeon was held with the enemyCapt Moriarty went into the hospital and with nothing but a razor acted the part of a surgeon We could not be without a chaplain or a surgeon any longer There was in our ranks a Lieut ilickeywho was dispatched from time hos pital with orders to procure the surgeon and chaplain at all hazards Forty min utes later and the brave Lieutenant was borne back severely wounded On the morning of the 10th the firing was resumed and continued all day We recovered our surgeon and chaplain The day was signalized by a fierce bayonet charge upon the enemy which served toI show them that our men were not yet completely worried out Through that day our little garrison stood with straining eyes watching to see if some friendly flag was bearing aid to them But no reenforcements appearedand with the energy of despair they deter mined to do their duty at all hazards The 19th was a terrible day Our water cisterns had been drained and we dared not leave the crown of the hill and make our intrenchment on the bank of theI river for the enemy could have planted their cannon on the hill and buried us The day was burning hot and the nlenI bit their cartridges their lips were parched and blistered But not a wordI of murmuring The night of the 19thI two wells were ordered to be dug WeI took a ravine and expected to reach water in about thirty hours The morning of the 20th brqke but no reenforcements appeared and still the men fought on The rebels had con structed movable breastworks of hemp bales rolled them up the hill and ad vanced their batteries in a manner to commapd the fortification Heatedshot were fired at them but they had taken the precaution to soak the bales in the Missouri The attack was urged with renewed vigor and during the afternoon the outer breastworks were taken by a charge of the rebels in force The whole line was broken and the enemy rushed in upon us- Capt Fizgerald was then ordered toI oppQse his company to the assailants As I gave the order the gallant Fitzger aId at the head of Company I with a yell rushed in upon the enemy The commander sent for a company on which he could rely the firing suddenly ceasedI and when the smoke rose from the field I observed the Michigan company under their gallant young commander Capt Patrick McDermott charging the enemy and driving them back Many of opr good fellows were lying dead our cart ridges had failed and it was evident that the fight would soon cease It was now 3 oclock and all of a sudden an orderly came saying thetnemy had sent a flag of truce with the flagI came the following note from Gen Price Colonel What has caused the cessation of tile fight The Colontl returned it C Kiv v 1 4 11 vPti I r QNTUCKY IRISH AlWERICAN with the following reply written on the back General I hardly know unless you have surrendered He took pains to assure me however hatsuch was not the case I learned soon after that the Home Guard had1 hoisted the white flag The Lieutenant who had thus hoisted the flag was threat cued with instant death unless he pulledI it down The men all said We have no cartridges and a vast horde of the enemy is about us They were told to go to the line and stand there and use the charge at the of their guns or perish there They grasped their weapons the fiercer turned calmly about and stood fumly at their posts And there they stood without aI murmur waiting for the rebel horde to show themselves at the earthworks- A councilof war was held and when finally the white flag was raised Adjt Cosgrove four city shed bitter tears The place was given up The enemy came pouring in We were placed inI file and n figure on horseback looking much like death on the pale horse led us through the streets of Lexington We were then taken to a hotel with no rations After we had boarded there for some time we started with Gen Price on the morning of the 30th for the land of Dixie The column of our escort was fifteen miles long Of our imprisonment there I will say nothing We all feel every man of us that we have been fighting for a great came that we were not spared from Lexington to sit idly in our homes while our country is in danger We all feel that that republic which was cemented by the blood of our fathers iis to be again baptised and made stronger with our blood MENLO PARK CONTINUED FROM FIRST PAGE 000000 deficit once confronted the part ners They speedily reduced it to 8000 000It should be stated in this connection that Jennie Flood had been well provided for by her father he having given her a fortune of millions in her own right and perr cent bonds at the time when the Bonanza mines were pouring out their greatest treasure Prom her earliest childhood until her fathers death the girl was near to his heart always at his side an angel to him in misfortune or prosperity nursing him from city to city tenderly lovingly caring for him when he was in Europe fighting for life with the aid of renowned physiciansLike heiresses Miss Flood wa befmarriedfirst to some dear of her youth then to some titled gentle man In 1889 the report was denied that she was engaged to marry J F Laubat Soon after Gen Grant returned from his tour around the world Miss Flood gass siped In clubs and social circles in San Francisco it was declared that their mar riage was soon to take place They were seen together almost daily took andvisited theaters and attended social functionsSeemingly they were the most lovin engagegs ment was broken cause wa never referred to nor debated and so the affair ended Almost immediately the Floods sailed for Europe On their return Miss Jennie entered upon a quiet life broken only by occasionall trips abroad For years she has almost shunned society By nature she is essentially a home womana loyal devoted helpful daughter Her greatest and noblest deeds known to not more than half a dozen friends will never reach the worlds publicity Much of her time is spent in San Francisco in the Flood palace on Knob Hill where she devotes herself to literature and art also to a great yet almost unknown extent to charitable work in which she finds her only true enjoyment Mrs Flood was almost constantly with her daughter and was her companion and friend in the highest sense of the term Both preferred the country life of their Menlo Park place and there free from social restraints and responsibilities they passed their time in profitable seclusion After Mr Floods death in 1889 various conjectures appeared from time to time as to the value of his estate When the property was divided two or three years later it was appraised at at 1120000 But it was generally de dared by experts to be worth twice that sum Onehalf of the estate was be queathed to the widow the remainder equally divided between Cora Jane Jen nie and her brother James L Flood The entire estate is now valued at anywhere from ten to fifteen millions PETER FINNEOAN Irish Antericans will read

memorative of Irelands Heroes o Resolutions Adopted Advocate lug Adherence to Principles of Wolfe Tone Deeds of Valor of Three Centuries Ago Recalled by Mr John Dillon THE BATTLE OF THE YELLOW FORD Recently a magnificent 98 demonstra tion was held at Bagenalls Bridge Coun ty Armagh the scene of the famous bat tle fought 300 years ago between Hugh ONeill and Queen Elizabeths troops in which the latter were defeated androuted with considerable loss The historic bridge marks the spot where the English General Sir Henry Bagenall was shot and a large bush stands over the place where it is stated Bagenall is buried This bush is called the Great Mans Thorn At an early hour large contingents commenced to pour in from Mona ghan Clones Belfast Tyrone and several of the surrounding towns each accom panied by band and banners and it is computed that fully 15000 persons were present The procession was formed at the head of Irish street Armagh and marched down the city in perfect order the whole presenting a most impressive spectacle The Boys Brigade was 100 strong and ech had his pike over his shoulder The route from the city to the meeting place was literally blockedwith vehicles and the utmost enthusiasm char acterized the whole proceedings The only member of Parliament present was apologyforquite a large number proposedbyonded by James Donnelly Armagh and passedThat we desire on this spot to commemorate the anniversary of the battle of the recsord our appreciation of the Irishmen who theegallant Irish chief Hugh ONeill over threw the flower of Englands army That we the men of Armagh Mona ghan Tyrone and Antrim in public battles field of the Yellow Ford do hereby testify our adherence to the principles and theewes hereby pledge ourselves to cherish and honor their memory supportgthe monusUnited Irishmen Mr John Dillon who was received with great cheering said that it was a privilege and pleasure to take part in the meeting to stand before that vast assem bly of the descendants of those who on the bloody day of the Yellow Ford saw England spite of three centuries of persecution they stood there today triumphant In spite of all the provocations they had suf fered the Irish race was year by year beatingbackthe year in which they lived another great step had been taken toward restor ing to the descendants of the old race that power which God meant them to have in the land of their fathers They were there to declare that they would never take their hand from the plow until that task had been accomplished until the last remnant of the hated ascendancy had been obliterated from Ireland and until the men of Ireland were recog nized as the sole masters of that ancient land Referring to the battle of the Yellow Ford he said it was probably the only time in the history of their country when the forces of England and Ireland met on fairly even terms when Bagenall at the head of 5000 men the flower of Elizabeths army left Armagh for the purpose of exterminating the Irish race in that country and he ventured to say never in the history of war was there a grander sight of fighting men than the Irish clansmen when 2500 of Elizabeths soldiers left their dead bodies on the field They were now standing on ground which would inspire them to future efforts for the cause of freedom The freedom of Ireland in the past had always been lost not because the Irish people were not able for the fight but because of divisions and dissensions among the Irish people themselves and it had ever been so in the history of Ire land Again and again when the cup of liberty and freedom was at their lips it had been dashed aside by the dissensions of Irishmen Let them now resolve to bind together as did the men of 1898 and turn their faces rosolutely towards their foes and let them expend their energies and enthusiasm in defeating the enemies of Ireland For his part as he looked round the country that day he saw signs of encouragement on all sides The Irish spirit was yet unbroken and uncon quered in the land of their fathers He refused to believe that the nation after having struggled for centuries were going to allow their country to be ruled by the stranger Mr W G Ryan of the Central Executive and several other speakers having addressed the meeting the proceedings terminated with a vote of thanks to the chairman Marriage may not be a failure but a good many married people are U f I U I i i CHARLES FEENEY Elected President of the Board of Councilmen for the Next Year Mr Charles Fceney Councilman from the Elevanth ward was elected President

disappointments in the light of other peoples terrible sorrows do not seem to be so great Many of the hard lines forming around the eyes and mouths of women would soften out and doubtless disappear entirely if they would throw a little more actual good into their daily lives By nil means 1 let us help the little children In speaking of children and their needs one can not but wonder why sewing classes are not organized in every school district for the present wants of the little ones as well as for the little girls the useful and necessary art of sewing In one school that I know of a little girl about seven years old wears a dress made up entirely of different piece- and colors of calico because the mother lad not enough of any one kind to make the whole drees On other days she wears a cloak without any dress visible at all This is only one example of tilt scarcity of clothing among these schoolchildren 1 There is no sewing society to help furnish these poor little outcasts with absolutely necessary covering Could not women both young and old take time from their complaining andI help brighten these young lives Child life should be made as happy as possible No one knows what

Therein lies the secret A beautiful trait and one that richly rewards its possessor is the habit of speaking kindly of the absent When uncultured people hold up for inspection and rude comment the supposed faults 1 of an absent one to graciously lift up the torn and wounded reputation by pointing out the good traits of the sufferer and charitably leading the offender into the belief that she

words of good cheer to young writers have endeared him to them all Catholic publishers are said to be equally- as usiderate7otably Bensiger Bros whose offers to young but true authors are very generous One or two experiences of an unpleasant nature must not lead us into the trap of finding fault with the whole bunch of literary humanity Men are considered superior to women that they can
