I KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN aVOLUME INO 14 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY OCTOBER 8 1898 PRICE FIVE GENTS I REDMOND On the Present and Pros pective Situation in Ireland Passage of the Local Govern incut Act Renders United i i Action Imperative r I Appeals to All to Support the Nationalist for Mayor of Dublin ANNUAL NATIONALIST CONVENTION t At a recent meeting of the Independent League in Dublin Mr John Redmond outlined the work to be performed by the convention to be held on the day follow ing the Parnell anniversary celebration His announcement of the course to be pursued by the people in using the new and formidable power placed in their hands by the local government act was warmly welcomed by his supporters says the Dublin Independent His remarks which cover the state of affairs as at present existing in Dublin and Ireland were asfollowsGentlemen there are two or three ques tions of great importance at this moment which I desire to speak to you about to night First of all I wish to allude to the forthcoming Parnell demonstration We are now approaching very near to the time when annually for a number of years pastsince his death men from all parts of Ireland have assembled here in Dublin to pay a tribute of affection and reverence to his memory by making a pil grimage to his grave And it seems to me that this year there arc many reasons why this Iarnell anniversay demonstra tion ought to be unusually large and unusually impressive This year 1808 we have been engaged in celebrating the memory of the dead The other day here in Dublin we witnessed a magnificent demonstration to honor the memory of Wolfe Tone And it seems to me that no one who took part in that demonstra tion can refuse to honor also the memory of Parnell a man who in altered times and it is true with altered weapons ifJrelandandgentlemen there is another reason why year after year these Parnell anniversary demonstrations ought to grow in volume and in power Every year that passes makes it clearer to Ireland how great were the services of Parnell aiid how irrepara ble has been his loss Since his death Ireland has been drifting like a rudder less ship and so I fear it will continue until God in Ills providenc sends some other man who will be able on the prin ciples of Parnell to reunite the Irish nation Gentlemen I believe that these Parnell anniversary demonstrations are tff great value to Ireland aud I sincerely hope that they will continue until someday in the near future the very near future as I hope when they may perhaps fittingly culminate in a great demonstration to lay the foundation stone here in the streets of Dublin of a National mem orial to his memory I therefore appeal tonight to our friends in every part of Ireland to organize their forces in time so that every part of the country may be represented in this years Parnell anni versary celebration I may announce to you gentlemen that the day after the Parnell anniversary it is intention to hold the annual convention of the Independ ent National Party in the Antient Con cert Rooms The passage of the recent Local Government Act renders it in our opinion imperatiye upon us to organize our party all through Ireland during the coming winter and to decide upon the lines upon which we will work in using the new and formidable weapon that that act has placed in our hands Gen tlemen the programme to be placed be fore the Independent National Conven tion the day after the Parnell anniversary will require more than ordinarily careful consideration and therefore we propose to summon a private conference of our leading friends in the city of Dublin to meet a week or so before the convention and to consider with us the programme which should be placed before the delegates There are two other matters to which I desire to allude tonight The first is the question of the Mayoralty of the city for next year The question that has arisen in reference to time Mayoralty of the city of Dublin is a national as distinguished from a merely local ques tion If indeed it were a merely local question I for my part might perhaps not feel justified in interfering but it is because I and my colleagues believe that thfs is a distinctly national question and a national question of the gravest and most vital import that we have deter mined with all the resources at our com mand to interfere in this matter and to take vigorous action It is well for us all to remember that next year for the first time in its history the corporation of Dublin will be entitled to the name of a really reformed corporation For the first time in its history it will then be a body really elected by the mass of the people and I need not point out to you that under the new circumstances its importance and its pwers will be enor mously increased It will then be the first end most important representative institution in Ireland and the Mayoralty of the city of Dublin will tlieu be the I highest representative position which it will be in the power of the Irish people to bestow upon any individual Now under these circumstances if we arc to maintain the credit of Ireland before the world and if we are to continue to assert our claim to national selfgovernment it is of the most supreme national inn portance that this high office should be bestowed not merely upon a capable and able man but also upon a man who will be a representative of the national senti went of the people To do otherwise would in my opinion be an act of crim inal stupidity and weakness and nothing less than a national scandal You arc aware gentlemen that a section a small section of the present old corporation have allied themselves to the Conserva tive members cf that corporation in order to elect to the chair next year Sir Robert Sexton a man against whom personally none of us have the slightest desire to saya disrespectful word but who is after all the representative of our polit ical opponents and has been himself a lifelong opponent of our national claims My colleagues and myself for the last seven years have been fighting for toleration in the public life of Ireland We have faced calumny and persecution in the cause of toleration We desire toleration in the public life of Ireland We desire to see the best men elected to all these public bodies in Ireland andwe think that to adopt the policy of excluding from these public bodies everyman who differed from us politically or religions would be an absolutely suicidal po icy for Irish Nationalists to adopt For my putand I think I speak in the name of the Parnellitcs of Dublin for my part I would be willing to give them not only in Dublin but all through Ireland a fair I will say even a generous share of representation upon these bodies For my part I sincerely hope that not only in Dublin but everywhere throughout Ireland men of all classes and creeds and politics may be fairly and generously represented on these new bodies and I say to these men that if in the future they keep these fair promises that they have given if instead of being as they have been for so many centuries a part of the English garrison here they turn round and become part of the Irish gar rison wily they will find that there will be no honor too great for the Irish people to bestow on them in the future if they cease to be West Britons and if they de clare themselves to be Irishmen lint having said so much there is sotjiethiiiK more to be said If in the name of this toleration which is patriotic and easily understood before the value of these promises is known to us before we know anything of the workingi pfjhis local rogovcnmthe full enfranchisement of the people under this act it is proposed to bestow the highest representative honor in Ire land upon an open and strenuous oppo nent of the national cause such a course seems to me nothing short of open madnessand I can not conceive any thoughtful man who considers these facts no matter how generous of disposition or tolerant of nature I can not conceive any thoughful man proposing such a course at the present moment In dis cussing this question we have the conso lation of knowing that such a proposal as has been made can never be carried into effect We know perfectly well that there is no more chance of an anti Nationalist being elected Lord Mayor of Dublin next year than there is say of a Nationalist being elected Lord Mayor of London next year or let us say Belfast For my part I sincery regret that this is sue has been raised at all I regret that Sir Robert Sexton of whom I have nothing disrespectful to say should have humiliation of this contest and this inev itable defeat put upon him I regret that in the first elections under the local government act this element of discord has been thrown into our midst But as this issue has been raised our plain duty is to face it and the way to face it iis simple We must fight this matter ou in every election in every ward in the cityNow gentlemen the other matter I desire to allude to is really in a sense a branch of the same question It is no use for us to say that when these contested elections arise that we will do our best to have proper men elected unless we take the necessary precautions of sensible men to enable us to make a winning fight These elections arc to be won not next January they are to be won today tomorrow and the next few days in the Revision Courts I am glad to know earnest and selfsacrificing efforts have been made by a number of publicspirited citizens to prepare for this revision Especially I think a word of praise is due to the efforts of those who started the St Stephens Green National Registration Society Those gentlemen have provided money out of their own pockets they have employed men working in advance of the registration and now as it were to culminate their efforts they have actually engaged solicitors to appear in the courts and look after the interests not merely of Stephens Green Division but every other division in the city with the result that there is at the disposal of the electors in every ward in every divis ion of this city the services of skilled so licitors provided by the St Stephens Green National Registration Society I must say that I think the Nationalists of everyward in the city of Dublin owe a deep debt of gratitude to those gentle men and I think it would be a disgrace to Dublin if the entire sum of the costs of providing these solicitors were allowed to fall upon the gentlemen in the St Stephens Green Division I think tha Nationalists in every other division of the city in every ward of the city ought to make some contribution so as to re CORY iijieN THIRD PACK L 1k THE FAR EAST Senator Elkins Says We Should Hold the Phil ippine Islands Thinks tic Late Wits Places Us on an Equal Footing with England w The Orient and Pacific Ocean the Future of Our Commerce OUR GREAT RIVAL ON THE SEA I More important results will follow from the present war than would have been achieved in a hundred years under ordinary circumstances said Senator Elkins of West Virginia is discussing the future outlook in this country Pew men in the United States are bet ter fitted to figure in the role of a prophet than Mr Elkins particularly with refer I ence to the problems now confronting the nation says the New York Journal We have just entered an epochmak ing age continued the Senator Be fore the war I was opposed to annexation north and south I felt that we hind enough territory to govern and that we did not want any more I sustained the President in trying to settle the differences with Spain without war and hoped up to the last that hostillities would be avoidedSeeing that war was inevitable I then felt as I stated in the Senate in my speech on the Cuban question that we should be aggressive to the last degree and take not only Cuba but also Porto Rico and the Philippines My idea was that Spain being bankrupt could not pay an indemnity and that we should hold these islands instead I did not believe in the resolutions that aimed to commit the country to nonannexation- All agree that Porto Rico should become part of the United States and be annexed immediately And all agree moreover that the insurgents should be given an opportunity to govern the island of Cuba and if they can not do so that Cuba shall ultimately become apart of tU4uUjne4 States f 7 7 There is a difference of opinion ns to what should be done with the Philippines To my way of thinking it will be more difficult for us to give up the islands than to hold them I resent the proposition that the United States should hold only a part of them or the best of them and give the others back to Spain Having once taken the islands this step would be un fair and unjust to the inhabitants It would be handing them over to their ancient oppressors- Do you think that the United States would look on complacently to the trans fer of CaptainGeneral Blancos army from Ctba to the Philippines and let him kill and butcher the inhabitants or lead ers of the insurgents indiscriminately besides confiscating their property This we could not permit and this is what would happen ifwe give back to Spain a part of the islands And so the world will applaud our holding the Philippine Islands as well as Cuba and Porto Rico cTheo again these islands are needed with Hawaii and the Nicaraguan canal as adjuncts to our commerce and the building upof our shipping Great Britain is our great rival on the sea If we are to compete with her and do our share of the worlds carrying trade as we should we must have the facilities that arte islands in the sea and coaling stations around the globe A builder can not build a house without tools We must lift ourselves out of our isolation and take our place in the affairs of the world if we are to become a great factor in the destiny of the human race We can not expand our commerce we can not go on and build up American shipping unless we are put on an equal1 footing with England throwl11intonot give them up under any circum stances The holding of all these islands is just as necessary to our future growth and expansion as the Louisiana purchase was or us the cession made by Mexico Both these additions to our territory were vio lently opposed at the tim yet there iis not a mat or woman living now who would willingly surrender either one The United States must be the con trolling commercial nation qf the world Its situation if nothing else entitles fit to this It has the longest coast in the world while England on the other hand is but a small island with a limited seacoast And there is no reason whatever why she should control the commerce of the globe when the natural advantages are all in favor of the United States We are now laying the foundatibns of the future of the republic It will endure I hope thousands of years In 200 years we will have between four and five hundred millions of people This will be more in proportion than the three mill ions that occupied the thirteen original I moretterritory our IIWe are a healthy nation progressing rapidly in every direction able towage war successfully and command the je spurt of the world Shall we now shrink J i W 5 from the petty problem presented by the Philippines after having grappled will and cut so many Gordian knots in our past history God forbid l I have for fifteen years regarded the Orient and the Pacific Ocean as the future of our commerce I look in that direction for our greatest development and largest commerce in the next century On the other sidof the Pacific are six or seven hundred millions of people All will become consumers and a great commerce will grow tro from this con sumption Somehow j or other we are strongly drawn to the 0 lent from where civilization learning and philosophy have been derived1 It s the magnet that draws everything to it Civilization has traveledaround the glo e and now meets the Orient again 1 UThe Untied States s mould not shrink from the small problems involved in keep ing the Philippines Nurse islands have been providentially given to us and we should not hesitate tcf persevere in our work of humanity A Lowell well says New occasions teach new duties time makes ancient good uncouth1 Monarchies have colonial possessions why should not republics I believe that this Government dill shave a better and wisercolonial policy than the world has ever seen yet 1t- uAs to how these islands should be governed that is a question that can be

Catholic Benevolent region is meeting with considerable suc cess in organizing councils of this well established organization which had its origin in the East Sonic seventeen years ago The Catholic Benevolent Legion is a fraternal and beneficial order organized and incorporated undr the laws of the State of New York During its seventeen years of existence not even the faintest suspicion has arisen of even an irregular ity in the collection and disbursement of upwards of 8500000 embraced in the benefit and general funds of its Supreme Council Time objects of the legion are to associate male Catholics between the ages of eighteen and fiftyfive socially to give material aid to Us meuibeis to ad vance them morally and materially to provide for the sick and disabled of its preut pJua

to Settle an Important Labor Controversy Time American Federation and the Engineers Association In a Snarl The Outcome AV111 Be Awaited With Interest by Employer and Employe A MOST STUBBORN FIGHT PREDICTED A question of vital interest to every trades and labor organization in the United States to corporations and public contractors and to city officials in the letting of public work is to be carried to the Supreme Court of the United States as a result of the longexisting ill will between the American Federation of Labor and the National Association of Stationary Engineers The point at issue is the legality of the union labor clause when inserted in con trans for municipal work and it is it curious anomaly that the final adjudication I of the vexed question will probably come through a conflict for supremacy between two labor organizrtions The controversary originated in Chicago a I few week ago and the decision of the Supreme Court will be awaited with in terest in every dty in the country from the fact that it is the first time in the his tory of American trades unions that a smatter of their disputes has been carried to the court of last resort The American Federation of Labor as most of our readers are aware is the great central organization of trades union ism in the United States since the col lapse and disruption of the Knights of Labor It numbers among its affiliated organizations a very large proportion of the trades unions of the country for whose interests it works on legislative lines and by using the collective power and influence of all in aid or defense of any of its affiliated bodies The National Association of Stationary Engineers is a powerful and influential organization founded on educational lines and its constitution explicitly states that it is not a trades unison in the gen eral acceptance of the term questions ofI hours or wages not being considered In the proceedings of its subordinate lodges Between the two there has been consid I erable friction for some years due to the fact that in labor troubles strikes or lock outs the engineers refuse to take part by abandoning their positions such actionI being forbidden by the law of their or ganization I They claim however to have no an tagonism to trades unions and are will ing at all times to render them their moral support in controversies in which they believe the unions to be right but insist that in selfprotection they must hold aloof in trade disputes because when these are finally settled or compromised the engineer is left to shift for himself if he has been so unwise as to abandon his post and so iucur the illwill of his em ployer The organization affiliated with the Federation on the other hand assert that the engineers through the course adopted by them are an instrumentality in aiding empolyers in case of strikes to defeat the men by keeping the plants in operation The Federation therefore considers itself justified in antagonizing the National Association of Engineers and in furthering and aiding the interests of the other organizations of engineers which are chartered by it and subject tits laws andrules The Chicago trouble originated over the employment by a contractor for municipal work of John C Whisler a member of Chicago Lodge No 45 N A S E In this instance a city ordinance passed at the demand or request of the labor unions required that union labor only should be employed on the work It also appears that Whisler joined the N A S E previous to taking employmentt on the contract in an effort to evade tim provisions of the ordinance The Hoisting Engineers Uuioij of Chicago demanded his discharge as a nonunion man or else that he join their organ la tion It is alleged that failing to force him to join the union the local Federa tion people brought pressure on the city officials to compel the contractor to dis charge him The National Association of Stationary Engineers then got out a writ of injunction restraining the city officials from enforcing the union labor clause claiming it to be unconstitutional and in direct conflict with thellnill of RightsOn hearing of the proceedings in injunction the court decided that the city of Chicago had the legal right to insert the union labor clause that its provision- were therefore binding on its contractor and its enforcement obligatory by him in the hiring of his workmen under the la of contract The case was then submitted by the Chicago subordinate lodges of time National Association of Stationary Engineers I to the annual convention of that I body in Pittsburg Penn two weeks ago in an appeal to tile convention to carry the question to the Supreme Court This the delegates at first refused to do claim illtakI Y u LhisJ A t hands but at the same time upheld his right to employment and denied thin le gality of the Chicago ordinance which virtually deprived him of it The matter was finally referred by the convention to President Collett and the national officers to seek legal advice and then if deemed proper by them to carry the matter to the Supreme Court During the past week a circular hums been issued by Presi dent Collett to the various lodges through out the United Stales informing them that this latter course has been decided upon and that the uijion labor clause will be contested and Whislers right to employment will be upheld if it takes the last dollar in the protective fund of the national association The union plunders in Nashville have gone on a strike their employers having declined to accede to their demands in re gard to apprentices The working time of employes of the Baltimore Ohio Southwestern railroad shops at Washington Ind have been re duced from ten to nine hours per day Over 500 men are affected The union casters of Massachusetts hare been generally successful in making settlements with the manufacturers all the larger shops having signed the price list The Whitman Shoe Company the largest in the world signed Tuesday and in only a few small shops were the men com pelled to strike The employment of women conductors on stroct cars has been stopped in Madison Ind as the change proved a losing investment Men with families had been discharged to make room for the women The men received 10 a week while the women were paid 4 The public very properly objected and to emphasize its displeasure boycotted the street cars Time officials of the Waco Street Rail road Employes Union ordered a strike their demand of nine hours a day having been refused by the Citizens Street Railway Company The men have been working twelve hours a day for 1 50 per day They ask for no advance in pay but a reduction in hours nine hours to constitute a days work Last reports indicate that the union men will win IRISH FAIR IN BROOKLYN I Each Province Has a Booth President Grout Presides but His Throat Is Too Sore for a Speech The Irish Fair under the auspices of the Ancient Order

surrender at Yorktown ns Lafayettes day was most fitting The selection of this glorious anni versary for the laying of the cornerstone of Lafayettes monument will1 bring to the minds of the American I people who their friends were whenI they were struggling for liberty Many eminent European writers especially Allison in his history o f Europe have openly charged the United States with ingratitude to ward France The erection of this monument a gift from the American people to the French nawon as- a token of esteem and gratitude will do much to dissipate this chargeThe French nation through the exertions of Lafayette sent twenty five ships of the line and 34000 troops to assist the struggling Americans and Capt Mahon the great writer on naval affairs who was a member of the Strategy Board

ing the late war with Spain The most ridiculous statements concern ing Englands friendship for this country were daily wired all over i the country by the Associated Press The most glaring falsehood for it can be considered in no other light was that M Hanotaux tree then Prime Minister of France had at tempted to form a coalition with Russia Germany and Austria to assist Spain in her war against the United States But when the subject was broached to Lord Salisbury with a view of obtaining Eng lands cooperation he flatly refused to do so and said furthermore that if such an alliance were formed the i British fleet would be placed at President McKinleys disposal The daily papers published the most minute details of the projected coalition and of Salisburys bold bluff The Anglomanics of this country went wild over this exhibi tion of friendship of ourIkina across the sea Column after column of gush about blood being thicker than water and Ithe two peoples being one in race religion and lan guage and so on ad nauseam were published by the daily papers The sentiment of the American gepple was being rapidly formed to accept the longtalkedof Anglo American alliance Now the truth has come out audit emanated from where it was least m t A- ii it expected an English source W T Stead the famous editor of the Pall Mall Gazette who is not editor his getting at bottom facts no matter where he hits or what illusions arc dispelled He says magna cst veritrfs the truth is mighty and 1lutist be told He says that he has it from the highest diplomatic au thorities that M Hanotaux never attempted to form a coalition against the United States and as far as the offeredfthe British fleet to President McKinley it was the veriest nonsense The late Prince Bismarckridiculed the report when it was first circu lated ai dl wisely remarked that na tions do not form alliances based on the fact that they speak the same language or any other sentimental reasonNations like individuals form

now understand and appreciate the famous Monroe Amene cans and justice demands that thetFilipinos In other words they want no outside interference either oroSpanish protectorate If the Ameri can Commissioners at Paris insist on retaining all or any of the Philippines there will be trouble It will take a large navy and army to en force American rule over the savage and intractable tribes who inhabit many of these islands They are in no wise fitted for self rule and it will be Quixotic on the part of the United States to attempt to establish a republic there As for Agui naldo he seems ready at all titles to sell out to the highest bidder He betrayed his associates once before and will do so again if the occasion presents itself THE SECRET OF UNITY If the United Irish League accomplished nothing else than the destruction of faction it would be a service of inestimable value to Ire land says the Irish World And it has all but accomplished this great gooddestroyed faction in all Ireland besides killing the cursed trade of the landgrabber in Con naught How did the League do it This is the answer in the words of William OBrien the founder and leader of the league The same glorious work is going on and is bound to go on wherever the United Irish League gets a grip because the beginning and ending of its constitution is no more of these miserable and fatal conflicts be tween Irishmen and Irishmen but let every man who has any fight in him prove his metal by going for the first enemy of our peopleof- our nations liberties that blocks the way Activity is the secret of unity as inaction is the breeder of disunion Thats the secret of the good workactivity Activity for Ireland against Irelands ene mies thats how to kill faction The United Irish League has done it from Mayo to Clareswept fac tion and feud out of existence before it God speed the glorious work l COME ONE COnE ALL During the past week we have received a very large number of names to be added to our subscrip tion list and we desire to return our thanks to those friends who are laboring so zealously in behalfof the Kentucky Irish American There are many not yet taking this paper who should do so and we ask our friends to see that their names are placed as subscribers The reception the Kentucky Irish American has received at the hands of the general public is most gratifying and augurs well for its fut ure success But there are the names of nearly one thousand per sons on our books who have not yet paid their dollar subscription These we most respectfully ask to call at the office one and all and pay the aforesaid dollar which willenable us to make improvements and pub lish a still better papera paper that will be of great benefit to its readers A dollar may seem and iis a small amount to any one butt when they aggregate up in hundreds they prove an important factor in the publication of a news paperThe price of the paper is so small that we should not be expected t expend money in collecting it Therefore we say come one come all with your dollar and when pos sible another name to be added The action of the Methodist Gen eral Conference of Michigan last week was the most peculiar and in explicable specimen of intolerance yet shown by any church organization in this country After de nounchuj those ministers who in the past had voted either for the Republican or Democratic party strict injunctions were given after a heated discussion that no ministe- should under pains of expulsion from the conference vote another y than the Prohibition ticket The CourierJournal in comment ing on the above said Suppose the Roman Catholic clergy were to pass resolutions favoring any ticket or measures purely political these same men would denounce their ac tion as unwarranted interference Shakespeare says- Consistency thou art a jewel To apply the matter locally sup pose that the Roman church authorities had ttaken any notice of the wild utterances of several of the candidates who were on the mongrel ticket called Republican what a howl would be raised The IrishAmerican Society is to be congratulated on the wisdom displayed in the selection of its offi cers for the coming year Business affairs compelled Col Mike Mul doon to decline a reelection which would have been unanimous The reelection by acclamation of Col John Whallen and Thomas Drewry

Typographical Union No C Sunday that the printer farmers who commenced truck farming at Pelham Bay Park in time spring by planting potatoes will begin to gather their crops on Monday Sixtyfour unemployed members of time union started truck farming on a tract of land in Pelham Bay Park time use of which had been secured by Big Six as an experiment They were furnishedwith the seed potatoes and a few preliminary lessons were given them in agriculture by a farming expert who was paid by the Farm Training Committee of the union The result is a big crop of potatoes which will net a fair sum to the printer farmers when they are sold The unem ployed members of time union started in as truck farmers in a sort of despairing way but the open air life has improved their health and spirits and they are now delighted with the success of their ex periment It has tided over the summer when work was slack and most of them are ready to go to the case again now that the political campaign has begun which will give plenty of work to com positors Some of the printer farmers are so well pleased with their attempt at truck farm ing that they are thinking of giving up their cases and taking to truck farming in real earnest They say that they were cut out for farmers after all and were all the years of their lives up to this fall ignorant of the fact The potatoes when gathered will be put iu barrels and sold The proceeds will go to the amateur truck fanners J W Sullivan Chairman of the Fann Training Committee of Big Six said Sat urday that the experiment was very sat isfactory It may be

our inconsistency A writer of an Eastern journal in commenting on time use of the bicycle among women doesnt hesitate to say that it has the effect not only of improving the health but of broadening time mind as well It only stands to reason that an improved state of health brings with it stronger nerves and good blood As a consequence trifling ills of life that were such an annoyance arc no longer a source of misery to time woman who gets to spend an hour or more riding past green fields over country roads amid inhaling Natures own great remedy fresh air The bicycle certainly has transformed us into a new race of women The pale and interesting young woman is no longer considered Bright eyes stout limbs and ruddy checks are in demand Can any one deny time bicycles influence in making this change A custom prevails among milliners and a certain class of dressmakers to take the services of young women and girls with out reimbursing them They take these young people to learn the trade and dur ing six months they will pay them nothing Every day during this long noviciate they deliver bundles for learning dressmaking and carry bonnets Louts to pa trons of the millinery establishment if they are serving their apprenticeship in the hat and bonnet business These girls must be nicely dressed and it is presumed they must cat and drink like other mortals and have a room to shelter them after their days labor Do these money sharks ever think that these young people have such necessities The utter heartlessness of such men and women is shown in this unjust and dishonest prac tice and well exemplifies time wail of time poet who wrote Mans inhumanity to man Makes countless thousands mourn No man has a right to time services of another without recompense It is writ ten that the laborer is worthyof his hire and common justice demands that honest labor deserves honest recompense A union among working girls would solve mammyof these difficulties and it is to

Books were picked up off time desks and laid on their shoulders by the boys to rep resent guns and the girls waved their handkerchiefs for flags The whole class broke out in hearty song for Three cheers for the Red White and Blue It is noticeable that during the present war no such strains have been written no music that can get as close to one as was composed and sung during the war be tween the North and time South Association has much to do with it Mostly all the old war songs were written in common time and were played for our fathers and brothers during those long tedious marches they were compelled to make across hundreds of miles footsore and weary as they were with their hearts filled with images of time loved ones they had left behind A very able woman writing for a monthly paper a few days ago said dinttiwomen may retain time affections of their husbands by simply acquiescing to their views of matters That is all very well if a woman is supposed to be a thing node to

some tune to come Concerning Ryans challenge and their recent bout in this city Franey makes the following state ment I must confess I am surprised in learning Ryan is seeking another match with me and I think it only proper to let you know how I feel in the matter In the first place I dont think he is sincere in his request for another go After the way he fought in our last fight I cart not see how he expects to win and only regret that the last one did not go twenty rounds But it impressed me that Ryan wished to lose on a foul I never heard of a man fighting as long as Ryan has resorting to such methods un less his intentions were such At no time during the eleven rounds was I the least bit distressed and was just about to box fast when Ryan resorted to his foul ring tactics My condition at the end will bear me out in this statement as there was not a scratch on me while I could see Ryan was shaky and weak in the tenth and eleventh rounds I have several good offers to box McPartland or Lavigne If I match with any one it wills be at 137 pounds As these matches will employ my time at present i will attend to Ryan later on THOS KEENAN Elected resident of the Ken tucky Irish American

secondly the neces sity of working in this fight about the Mayoralty so as to make the defeat of any Tory Sir Robert Sexton or anyone else who may stand absolutely assured and thus giving a proof to England that we in Ireland are as determined as ever in our efforts for home rule and thirdly the necessity of assisting in this registration which is essential not only toI emancipate St Stephens Green Division from its present Parliamentary represent ation but to enable the Nationalist Cor poration to have an overwhelmiug ma jority of true men pledged to the principles of Irish nationality

performances in and England of W J M Newburn This now holds the bet on record of the world twentyfour feet six and threequarter inches which he made at Mullingar Ireland recently This is so far in advance of anything which the most celebrated running road jumpers of the world have ever done that it could scarcely be be lieved Had it not been for the fact that this great athlete cleared over twenty four feet in public six times last summer on different grounds and under different conditions it is doubtful if on this side of the Atlantic athletes would admit the genuineness of his best performance There are only about eight jumpers who have ever cleared twentythree feet or over in this country Great Britain and Australia When it is considered that Newburn leads ihe whole field by nearly- a foot his ability can all the more be ap preciatedMyer made the best American record twentythree feet eight and seven eighths inches last summer which stood the best figures until Newburn did twentythree feet nine and fiveeighths inches last June The best Australian record is twentythree feet seven and one half inches and it seems remarkable that three records made in countries thousands of miles away from each other should have so little distance between them Newburn continued with his wonderful work and raised the record to twentyfour feet onehalf inch at Dublin July 10 two days later did his final great per formance six and onequarter further Ncwburus physical proportions are something away beyond those of the jumper for men who engage in this branch of exercise are generally medium size compactly built Yet if a big man can be found whose muscles are as well knit and who possesses pro portionate activity asasmaU man it stands to reason he do a better o performance Mycr Prinstein of America is five feet seven and threequarter inches in height and weighs 142 pounds in athletic rig His important measure ments are as follows Chest four inches waist twentyseven inches thighs twentytwo inches and calves fourteen and one lialf inches He is about the build of an averageman but he has time snap and energy necessary to lift himself over the great distance credited to him When Newburns proportions are given the great difference is apparent stands six fest six inches in height weighs 200 His chest mimeasu- refourtytwo inches thigh twentyfive anti onehalf inches and calf inches Newburn starts with his run about l150 feet back from the takeoff and ap proaches rather slowly a certain mark about ninety feet away from the I On arriving at this mark he has given enough momentum to his body to hay quickened his speed which he does afte getting the foot with which the jumps at this mark His strides after this I mark increase in length as his speed in creases and the last three or four meas I t ure over ten feet in leagth for by this time he is going at his utmost speed I The stride just in front of the takeoffI JONII GALVIN Candidate for School in Eighth and Ninth Wards and Galvin and purpose already general startled Ireland athlete worlds and inches average and should thirty pounds sixteen takeoff leaving Trustee is not over seven feet llong for he must gather himself then for the jump and if he put his jumping foot too far in front of him he would more or less retard his momentum When Newburn leaves the ground he gets a great rise and literally sails through the air Just before landing it would seers that his feet were going to touch when he tucks them under him and their being handled so gives the uninitiated an impression that he is taking a second spring Then when his head und shoulders are so close to the ground that he can postpone the inevitable no longer he shoves his feet in front of him and the mo mentum of his whole body carries him forward and prevents falling back Like nearly all of the best running broad jumpers Newburn is a very fast sprinter and has been credited with running 100 yards in ten seconds His stride when running his fastest in this race is from ten feet three inches to ten feet five inches and he is the longest striding athlete ever heard of since athletic sport has been chronicled He is a professor in Claremont College Dublin timid practices his athletics solely for health lIe lays particular streets on the fact that he neither smokes nor drinks lIe writes that he intends to come to America during his summer holidays next yea- rMOLONYS I I WAR TROPHIES Among Other Things He Has What He Says Is the Municipal Flag of Santiago- A tall sinewy grizzled man about
