KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN v LVOLUME INO 15 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY OCTOBER 15 1898 PRICE FIVE CENTS F LAND COURTS Should Be floved by LandI League Methods Says William OBrien First Step to Abolish Landlord ism IB to Abolish the Land Grubber People of Itoscoiiunon Organize to Regain Possession and Control of the Land GREAT LEAGUE MEETING AT DROA1IN A large and imposing public meeting was held at Drotnin County Roscommon the scene ofa recent eviction ando police prosecutions The object of the meetingwas to start a branch of the United Irish League and to give such other help as might be found necessary to the evicted tenant Miss Conroy with whom lived her sister Mrs Begge a widow with a large family Since the eviction the tenant has reentered into possession of the house and at the last petty sessions on Wednesday in Hlphin she was prosecuted for trespass by the new tenant a policeman named Egan whose family holds land in the neighbor hood but the cases were dismissed At the same sessions a young man Mrt Michael MacEgan was prosecuted on a charge of intimidation in connection with the eviction and the taking of the land These events including the imprisonmentt of young MacEgan in default of giving bail have caused a good deal of excite ment in the district qt4 meeting was of a most enthusiasti character All sections of Nationalists worked in perfect harmony and the speeches advocating unity from all the speakers were received with specially emphatic cheering- On motion of Mr John Lavin Hlphin the chair was taken by Mr John Doyle Etphin The chairman said they were sorry to have met under such circum stances that day but as they were aliil united together in putting down an un just cause no matter what their principles might be otherwise on this occasion andI 6wherever there was necessity for it everyman pledged himself to hold true to the principle of not taking evicted farms and having nothing to do with people who did take them The man that took an evicted farm should not be recognized b y his neighbors but should be shunnedI The reason tliey had met was to devise means to prevent such an iniquity in this county It was not possible to live in the county if such things were allowed to be carried on The Commandments said they should not covet their neighbors goods lie advised them to put down land grabbing by every legal means in their power Mr Feebily Dromin proposed the follU lowing resolutions That we hereby condemn in the strongest possible manner the nefariou- system of landgrabbing which has at alll times inflicted countless miseries on the Irish people and we hereby pledge ourselves to use all legitimate influence t0 wipe out the disgrace of that reallyf national curse That for the better protection of our I poople against the landlord cruelty and his disgraceful ally the grabber whereby determine to establish a branch r the united Irish League in this parish and thereby assert the rights of our countrymen to possess the soil that bore them The resolutions were put to the tuckti ing and were passed with acclamation- Mr William OBrien who was receive- with cheers which lasted for several thini utes accompanied by waving of hats amm handkerchiefs in the course of his speech saidUndoubtedly from the National point of view grabbing is an actual blessing iin disguise if it should be the means of t bringing side by side together men who fought grabber and fought evictor shoulder 1 to shoulder on many a day and many a night in happier times for Ireland It is to me nothing short of a delight to find myself once more on the platform beside men like Mr John Fitzgibbon of Cas tlerea and like Mr Hayden the member for South Roscommon Mr Fitzgibbon has just said to you that a time there was when a grabber would no more dare to raise his head in Roscommon than the anaconda serpent would dare to raise his head in the land of St Patrick These were the days when we were all united Irishmen when John Hayden and myself were comrades in Tullamore prison and when Mr Fitzgibbon and myself met together in many a fray here in Roscom mon and I am bound to say that a stouter or a more loyal comrade I never cared to have in the thick of a fightt Well please God it wont be Mr Fitz gibbons fault and it wont be Mr Hay dens fault if we dont today convince the grabbers that Irishmen can be unite d Irishmen still This movement is growing and widening in a way that its sanguine promoters never didexpect It began by proposing to save phis province from famineit is going on to save thi county from grabbers and please God will never end until it has rid the country of grabberism and landlordism andof nilii the dissensions and disorganizations that have been preying on the Irish cause for the last eight years Now I want you to understand that no man no section and no party must e1rb allowed r to promote this move L z meat of ours for any personal or sec tional purposes There is not the slight est fear of that Anyof us who go about making speeches may just as well be necesIis beginning to sink into the depths off the hearts of the people through the country It is literally the fact that not a single branch of the United Irish League not a single branch of the organ ization has yet been formed by organiza zation from outside until the people had first risen up and taken the matter into their own hands and clamored to be or ganized For instance I need not tell you that I did not know a single soul in this parish where we are assembled until to day What I did know was that the par ish of Klphin was so opposed Jto and Jam quite sure honestly opposed to my particular views upon past questions so opposed that I believe that at the general elections of 1892 and 189Th none of our candidates ever dreamed of put tug their feet within the parish of El phin I came here today not knowing and not caring whether I would meet any persons of my own particular views in these matters but I came here perfectly certain that whether I met Panrel limes or anti Panudlites I would find you all animated by one desire above all oth ers and that is that the differences among honest Irish Nationalists in the past should be buried a thousand leagues under the sea and that the man will be here as elsewhere most welcome who will work hardest to bring all classes of Irish Nationalists together again into the fighting line for Ireland against the laud lordand the grabber and against the SaxonI that before you separate today you will band yourselves together into a united organization Now ifever there was a time when we had a good deal to fight for it is at the present mo tottthe united organization of the Ipeople would have before it This I say that never was there a time in this century when the Irish people would enter upon a struggle against England with a more absolute certainty of winning that ever men had before in this century if sr are only capable of showing a tithe of the courage of the selfsacrifice which the men of 1708 expended in a losing battle Only think what this organization has been able to do without leaders or organ izers or funds It is simply that neccs sits is our organizer The prices of cat tie at every fair are our organizers The judicial rackrenters arc our organizers The gentleman who sent young MacEgan to Sligo jail on Wednesday is a firstrate organizer Why is it that the Land Courts are making ducks and drakes o the Land Acts Why is it that the landlords are keeping a pretty tight upper lip so to say It is because they know that they can get grabbers As our chairman has said to you in a country like Ireland it is as necessary to chain up the grabber as it would be to chain upa raving lu natic It is as necessary to put him in quarantine as our chairman said as if he were attacked by a malignant fever for recollect the grabber is not in honest competition with the Irish farmer The first step toward the abolition of land Onceitouch lams poor neighbors holding than thelyou once more the whole Irish question at your disposal you will have no longer any competitor in the position estate in the open market even if he had therpay his receiver a stiver until he lion estly put the fortieth section of the act of 1890 b in force And so you would go on until you would have the landlords imploring the moneydgo way grabdcrying ityou ought to do it You ought to put down the grabber by the good old methods which were practiced in the everyfarmeris sighing for unity and is feeling the want organization Why are the landlord journals with a view to the Novem ber rents singing a regular song of triumph b over the fact that the potatoes and the oats are not a failure this year Why every one who knows the farmer and who knows the state of the country knows the farmers of Ireland were never in lower water since the Land League sprang into existence than they are this very year One of the most decided Parnell ites remarked to me the other day that the farmers of Ireland are no doubt more poorfstone passed the Laud Act owing to the tremendous growth of foreign competi tion I saw it stated the other day that those farmers of the North of Ireland who turn up the whites of their eyes at the wickedness of us mere Land Leaguers and who are always the first to rush in to grab everything that we win for them these gentlemen are proposing to raise a collection to have the case of Adams and Dunseath argued out over again before another court of lawyers Pretty way this of settling the land question I They might just as well propose to bring th shyingite North never do anything practical on the land question except whatever mischief they do by abusing the men fighting their battles for them Give me the men of the West and South to move the land courts not by lawyers fees but by the good old Land Ieagtfe methods I tell you whether the farmers of Ireland like l it or not if they are to keep their heads at all above water the time is come when you will again have to reduce this landI question to such a condition of resistance and of turbulence if you like that the landlords will jump at any great measure of compulsory purchase tint will make every farmer of Ireland the master within the bounds ditch of his own hoMing and that will at the same time sweep away the last barrier from the landlords resistance to home rule But even if we could make the farmers the owners of their own holdings it wouldI be of no avail in cases where the farmers holdings are so small and so poor that iitl would be impossible to earn a decent liv ing out of them There are fully COOOO tenants in the province whose holdings would have to be doubled and trebled int size before they could hope to earn a de cent subsistence on the land of their fathers Every four or five years the po tatoes fail and these 50000 peasant fami lies are depending for bread on the hu miliating and degrading clarity of the stranger This poverty is not Gods work It is the devils work There are still living I dare say in this very crowd persons who can remember when the plains of Boyle were peopled by a great and industrious tenantry who were after ward banished to the Curlew mountains Well the time has come when if men we are to stop the hand of famine in the West the people will have to coat down again from the Curlew mountains The glorious plain that expands for twenty or thirty miles through Roscommon will have to be split up into farms off twenty or thirty acres That will save the people from the shame of going about the world as mendicants for straw- gers charity And remember that thbs is not a daydream to me On the contrary it will be a reality the moment that the whole people of Connaught imitate the people of Mayo and say that they will stand no more pottering with this question of famine in the West The Congested Districts Hoard by a resolution which can never be expunged have con fessed that ours is the only remedy for the congested districts Let us bring things to such a pass that the landlords pure chase as we are Let us prove that in the County Councils the people will not only be able to do the business better than ever the grand juries did it but that by and by they will be federated into a national Parliament of the people whose business it will be to demand the right to compulsory purchase and the control of the police just as the law gives to the County Councils of England at present Above all let us chose up our ranks a Irish Nationalists Let nothing tempt us lmelpf ing any usI demandof all sides some patience under provocation If this league tint you are establishing here today should do nothing r else except to help in any degree to heal up that most calamitous wound one o the most calamitous that ever was inflicted upon the Irish cause I say to you that result alone wilt be something that will be worth having labored for and that will have glories enough most ntnpl- to lreward every man who has hand ac or part in the goodwork o 0 THOMAS H MURRAY Will Visit Louisville In the In terest of the American Irish Historical Society Mr Thomas

night lost his orderly of1 boyslr It was only 3 oclock in the morning when my friend whom I must call the last man came to where we were and said Come all aboard chaplain if yo propose joining our party come along At 340 that Saturday morning July 2 our little party was on its way to the frontBefore 9 oclock we arrived at shaft ers headquarters thanks to our very early start From here could be heard J the shot and shell and the general fusillade taking place at the front The war correspondents who accompanied me went to the press tent a little to the rca of Shafters our linguistic friend Dowley reported to the General while I steppe into the general hospital just across the opening and in less time than it takes t tell it one of the stewards offered to care for my haversack and at the same timn remarking Father that man over there wants you That poor man did want me and what I did for him I did for scores of others both those inside the large tents3 those poor wounded men in the small or quarter tents and those who were ex posed lying under the trees all aroundi I was pleased to find Major King first surgeon of the Thirtyfourth Michigan Volunteers was in charge and as I entered in the morning was his third operation that day More than 400 wounded soldiers many of them Catholics and I was th hospitaleNor was all the work accomplished there on tins Saturday for a very fair amount of work was performed by me there the following day About this time I had the pleasure of meeting Father Fitzgerald post chaplain of the Twenty second Regulars who informed me that he had lost through no fault of his all his altar outfit even his holy oils ritual and stole I will not soon forget his joy on learning that I could accommodate him with a set of holy oils ritual and stole as Iliad a duplicate set We agreed rt patat woulgd Then in company with a Boston ChicagnJournal who sketched our tramp an which appears in the Pilot of September 3 we arrived back at Siboney ten tulle distant footsore and weary in due time Hundreds of wounded placed in great heavyarmy mule wagons hard vehicles to ride in even for a well man as theyI had no springs and the roads were fright fulpassed us on the way The day after my return to Siboney July 3 there were less Ulan 100 in the hospital nut everyday brought more 4- tN and before the endof the week there were more than 400 patients and three hospitalsHundreds were arriving at these hose pitals and in less than a week more than 500 wounded men were under cover but not oiie single cot or bed even for the extreme cases Stretched along the ground in some cases without a blanket over them or even under them great immense giant tents all radiating from one common center one would wonder where all the wounded came from Per haps those without priestly practice can- sayOhm there was nothing to do there for a priest Finally the deportation of the poor wounded roan commenced I was re quested in the presence of Col Bogan a field officer and of the Sergeant who was acting as orderly to the Colonel to look after this end of the transfer of the wounded With no wharf and high breakers it was a difficult task and not a single wounded soldier that left that shore for the States whether on a litter or otherwise that I did not with my own assistIby word or by act until the advent of the only respectable hospital ship

us on garrison duty as they ar talking about doing We are now a Ponce Iorto Rico and I tell you we have had a hard time of it We left New port News August 8 and were on the sea thirteen days before we lauded at Ponce When we got here they gave us orders to go to Mayaguez and bombard the town We had three battleships with us We got to Mayaguez the next morning and just as soon as the Spaniards saw us they floated a white flag All we had to do then was to get off the ships and hoist the stars and stripes in the town The Spaniards took to the woods and we were hard after them in a minute We captured about six hundred of them After putting guards over them we laid1 down to sleep in their armory We got about 500 guns and fully that many suits of soldier clothes They just left every II thing We hoisted the American flag in five of the Porto Rico towns and then I it came our turn to see hard times We started in a fortymile march over the hills through rivers and mud up to the waist Many nights we had to sleep in the rain and the mud We crossed four rivers by fording as they dont seem to know what bridges are out here Tim- cttnemit e t1al w vifJJ11Itlle lhaMliiirdlwater Y keep on

our boys are sick and we are expecting them to die at any time We lost all our blankets and had to sleep on the wet grass But we cleaned ou all the Spaniards and we are now bac at Ponce They say that after a six days rest we will leave on another long marchThere are no railroads here and to add to the discomforts of marching the hillsI are 400 to 500 feet high All the boys have got enough and we all wish we were back home I think we will get some bounty money when we are mustered out As I write this letter it is 130 in the shade and this though the wind is blowing In all the towns we have been in the children wear no clothes and to hear the talk of the natives would set youI crazy When we ask for water they dont know what we mean and we had a hardI time finding out how to saywater it I

Juan- BUNCOINO THE BOYS The Porto Ricans have been quick t catch on to the relic fad of the soldiers and not a few of the boys will carry back to the States dozens of articles which they could buy for half the price at any store on Fourth street They dont seem to realize that half the stuff in the stores here was brought straight from America and is sold with the added1 duty and dealers profit This applies especially to jewelry and articles of time class Watches that look at all odd and dont happen to have an America- makers stamp on them are being greed ily snapped up at fancy prices and man ye a girl that was left behind will be mad a present of a handkerchief or piece of jewerly which could have been bought at home for half the price The really cheap things on the island1 are confined almost exclusively to native fruits and tobacco Bananas especially t are ridiculously low A few days ago Col Castleman bought for a peso and a quarter about seventyfive cents four immense bunches of delicious bananas any one bunch of which at home would I i have cost at least 1 50 Compare that with ice at three pesos a hundred A soldier was attracted by a very pretty although plain amber tipped

DESIRABLE ALLY t 1 The clamor for an AngloAmeri ican alliance made by a certain i element in this country is character istic of that class who worship everything English ridicule and denounce everything and every body else though they have recently become respectful and complimentary to the Germans probably because Emperor Willie is a grandson of Queen Vic and it is all in the family claim that all the enlightenment liberty progress decency of the American people are patterned after England that we are oneEngland the othe- rof the two great AngloSaxon nations the only civilized and pro gressive nations of the world tha blood is thicker than water that the bonds of brotherhood are stronger than national barriers and destiny portends that we shall be one people that these two na tions are endowed with the great mission to destroy despotism ignor ance barbarism and lead the march of progress that is to give to all the world freedom civilization morality and salvation and combined are possessed of the prowess and armament to conquer all whooppose Rot The American people are not all nor even the majority de scendants of the AngloSaxon nor do they regard England as the model of freedom civilization pro gress and power They still believe that the Fathers of the Revolution were wise in their day and generation and as they ignored and defie the Tories of their time the1 American people will decline to be by the gush and bluster of the Anglomaniacs of today The praise of England is truculent flat tery the claim that she encourages upholds or tolerates liberty of the people is false that she contributed to the enlightenment or betterment of the conditions of peoples sub jected to her control unless her system of subserviency and extermination be civilization is equally untrue in fact the assertion tha l the Americans and English are any thing in common except language is in direct opposition to truth Nor has this country anything to gain save possibly the illwill of all the world besides by an alliance withl EnglandOh Englands fleet and her army with that of the Unite- States would be invincible against all the world Then the United States like all of Englands allies heretofore would have to do the fighting and England reap the glory and benefit Facts of history show that England singlehanded has been victorious over none but weak nations chiefly uncivilized unorganized and undisciplined bar bariansBut her fleet is the largest in the world Those who should know its effectiveness besther European neighborsseem to have no fears of it and it is manifest from the recent suggestions of the British naval authorities for the expenditure of millions in building war vessels that large as is the Eng fish fleet it is outclassed by the fleets of her rivals The treatment of England by the European nations recently do not indicate much fear She is en tirely ignored in all important mat ters her suggestions disregarded her interests trampled upon

Nationalists whom they are seek ing to disfranchise on technical grounds In Athea County Limerick 130 householders are disfran chised by having their names stricken from the registration list because although they paid their rates previous to July i the rate collector failed it seems to receive a cheque for the rates until the ad of Julya day after the allotted timeand the rate collector acting on advice did not put the names of he tenants on the lists The DemocraticLabor Federation fought the matter out at the Revision Court contending that as the cheque was posted by the agent on the ist of July payment should be M Q accepted as such The revising barrister Mr Bourke ruled with regret against the latter contention A case he said had been decided t in the Queens Bench where the 1 money was put into the letterbox off the collector after office hours on the last day and not found by him until the following morning and same was not held to be pay I ment In Stephens Green division Dublin the most strenuous efforts are being made by the Unionists to disfranchise Nationalists who claim as inhabitant householders TheI usual procedure is to seek to prove that the hall door of the house is shut every night by the landlord and to ask the Revising Barrister to infer from this that the claimant is really a lodger and that his claim is therefore bad and should be disallowed The conclusion o course by no means follows as the hall doors are shut not in the vir tue of the landlords control of the place but simply because respect able people would not care to live in the houses if the hall door were allowed to remain open all night and that if it were not shut it wouldl be almost an impossibility for the police adequately to perform thei duty at night time The same tactics to defeat the will of the people and crush the United Irish League movement are being resorted to throughout Ire land There can be no better evidence of the strength and unity off the Irish National party INDIAN OUTBREAKS The history ofour countrys dealings with the Indians has beenI fitting calledCIA Century of Dis honor From time immemorial itt has been the custom to characterize every trouble we had with the In dians as an Indian outbreak o uprising The press in every case represented the differentt tribes who had any trouble with the Government as a restless andi turbulent set who wanted to rob and murder through pure deviltry In the present case with the Pil lagers of Minnesota it is neither an outbreak nor an uprising It iis simply an act of desperation by a small band of Indians who after re peated acts of injustices depreda tions and robberies by unscrupulous white men against which the Government has failed to protect theta have at last taken the matter into their own hands and attempted to settle their trouble by force o arms The Pillagers are a part of the Chippewa nation who as a rule have given little or no trouble to the whitesIliThe Indian Commissioner says they are most peaceably disposed and are well advanced in civiliza tion They were converted to Christianity by the Franciscans To call this present trouble with the Pillagers an uprising is absurd The Indians are not such fools as to believe that they could hold out against the Government for any length of time as they are only a few hundred in number It js the old story of Indians moved from one reservation to another pushedi to the wall by the whites their lands invaded by squatters their forests destroyed by thieving lumbermen their property stolen un der one pretense or another finally growing desperate they not only resisted the civil authorities butt fired on the United States troops who were sent to assist in the spoilation Of course the outbrea- will be suppressed and the Indians moved to another reservation buttt no one will deny that they have been goaded to this desperate act The Indian Commissioner says Of course they have had a griev- ancE and this led to the presentt outbreak It was determined to move them from their presentt quarters to lands inside tine White Earth reservation The latter lands are superior to those ownedl by the Indians but traditions are strong with them and they holdl with tenacity to their old lands andl associations They insisted alsoI that they should be paid fo their improvements This wasI irecognized as just and 35000 was asked from Congress but it was refused So the old Indians of the tribe positively refused to move until they were paid In addition to this the Minne sota papers have stated that the Indian reservation had been invaded and their pine forest burned and plundered by a low class of whites Tire most deplorable feature of the trouble is the loss of our brave soldiers The socalled outbreak will be suppressed and the offenders I punished but the lost lives can not be restored It is reported that Gov Bradley is to reorganize the State Guard and ignore the Louisville Legion This organization dates back over fifty years has ever been faithful recford in the Mexican and civil wars and its prompt response to the call of the President in the war with Spain have made not only Louis yule but the people of the State Legionpis entitled to retain its place as the lFirst regiment of the State Guard and to disown it on a technicality ofrthe country and supplant it with a lot of patriotic stayathomes who were conspicuous by their si lence till the war was over is a mean scurvy trick that we will not believe Gov Bradley capable o until he proves his guilt by doing it The Young Mens

time the attention of Kuropc has been focused upon Pekin from which r come all sorts of reports about a revolu tion having taken place by which thet Emperor of China has not only lost his throne but his life To understand the situation it should be stated that white the struggle for supremacy was ostensi offEmperor fight was between Russia and England both of which are striving with might and main to make their influence paramount in the Celestial kingdom The Empress and the Emperor were more or less fig ureheads whose success or defeat meant that English or Russian influence was in the ascendant A few weeks ago England had her in ning with the result that the supporters of the Empress among whom was the wellknown Li Hung Chang were dis missed from office Since then Russia has scored and the Empress Dowager i once more supreme Her return to power was a signal for the English news agent cies to circulate all sorts of rumors about her She was represented as having caused the Emperor to be put to deathI after submitting him to horrible tortures The assassination story is not yet con firmed and in all probability is an Eng lish lie So far as can be discerned amid the conflicting reports the situation is this England has been checkmated at Pekin by Russia and is determined to stir up a row in the hope that her inter ests will thereby be promoted In furtherance of this policy have been cabled to this country that American citizens and American mission aries in China are in danger of being controlt1 of all i in a position to dish out to us any news that she thinks may help

small fleet under Admiral Bompart and on the 10th of Oc tober but four of the vessels arrived off Lough Swilly At daybreak next morn ing before they could effect a landing a superior British fleet under Sir JohnI Borlase Warren appeared on the horizon Bonipart determined to fight the Hoche to the last but signaled the frigates and i schooner to retreat through the shallow water i A boat came from the niche for last orders when the French officers entreat ed Tone to escape on board of herOur contest is hopeless we shall be prisoners of war but whall shall become of you Shall it be said he indignantly re plied that I fled whilst the French were fighting the battles of my country For six hours the Hoche engaged five sail of Admiral Warrens fleet Tone com manding one of the batteries with the utmost coolness and bravery At length the ship struck after she had become a dismantled wreck with five feet of water in her hold and the cockpit full of dead and dying All the French squadron were ulti mately taken with the exception of two frigates and the niche in which Tone might have escaped The captive officers were landed and marched to Lettcrkenny where the Earl of Cavan invited them to breakfast It was believed that Tone was among them Sir George Hill entered the room followed by some soldiers rec ognized Tone and said Mr Tone I am very happy to see you Tone replied with composure Sir George I am happy to see you how are Lady Hill and your family On being removed to another room and finding handcuffs about to be placed on him he flung off his uniform coat saying These fetters shall never degrade the revered insignia of the free nation which I have served II Resuming his composure he held out his hands and added For the cause which I have embraced I feel prouder to wear these chains than if I were decorated with the Star and Garter of England He was taken under an escort of dragoons to Lon donderry and thence to Dublin where was placed in the provost prison at the Royal Barracks On the 10th of November a court mar tial was called to try him Tone appeared in his French uniform and delivered the following speech which we copy from his life by his son The time of my fathers trial was de ferred a few days by the officers appointed to sit on the court martial receiving marching orders At length on Saturday November 10 1798 a new court was assembled consisting of Gen Loftus who performed functions of president Cols Vandeleur Laly and Wolfe Major Armstrong and a Capt Curran Mr Pat erson performed the functions of Judge Advocate Tone appeared in the uniform of a Chef de Brigade Colonel Th firmness and cool serenity of his whole deportment gave to the awestruck assembly the measure of his soul Nor could his bitterest enemies whatever they deemed of his political principles and of the necessity of striking a great example deny him the praise of determination and magnanimityThe of the court having taken the usual oath the Judge Advocate pro ceeded to inform the prisoner that the court martial before which he stood wasI appointed by the Lord Lieutenant of the Kingdom to try whether he had or had not acted traitorously and hostilely against his Majesty to whom as a natural bornI subject he owed all allegiance from the very fact of his birth in that kingdom and according to the usual form he 1called upon him to plead guilty or not guiltyToneI mean not to give the court any useless trouble and wish to spare them the idle task of examining wit nesses I admit all the facts alleged and only request leave to read an addressI which I have prepared for this occasion Col DalyI must warn the prisoner that in acknowledging those facts he ad mits to his prejudice that he has acted traitorously against his Majesty Is such intentionToneStripping this charge of the technicality of its terms it means I pre sume by the word traitorously that IF have been found in arms against the sol diers of the King in my native country I admit this accusation in jts most ex tended sense and request again to explain to the court the reasons and motives of my conduct The court then observed that they would hear his address provided he con fined himself within the bounds of mod eration He rose and began in these wordsMr President and Gentlemen of the Courtmartial I mean not to give you the trouble of bringing judicial proof to convict me legally of engaging in hostility to the Government of his Britannic Ma jesty in Ireland I admit the fact From my earliest youth I have regarded the connection between Ireland and Great Britain as the curse of the Irish nation and felt convinced that while it lasted this country could never be free nor hap I 1 py My mind has been confirmed in this opinion by the experience of every succeeding year and the conclusions which I have drawn from every fact before my eyes In consequence I determined to apply all the powers which my individual efforts could move in order to separate the two countries That Ireland was notable herself to throw off the yoke I know I therefore sought for aid wherever it was to be found In honorable poverty I rejected offers which to a man in my circumstances might be considered highly ad vantageous I remained faithful to what I thought the cause of my country and sought in the French Republic an ally to rescue three millions of my countrymen from The President here interrupted the prisoner observing that this language was neither relevant to the charge nor such as ought to be delivered in a public court One member said it seemed cal culated only to inflame the minds of a certain description of people the United Irishmen many of whom might prob ably be present and that therefore the court ought not to suffer it The Judge Advocate said he thought that if Mr Tone meant this paper to be laid before his Excellency in way of extenuation it must have quite a contrary effect if any of the foregoing part was suffered to re mainToneI a shall urge this topic no fur timer since it seems disagreeable to theu court but shall proceed to read the few words which remain Here Tone was interrupted by the President who would not allow him to read the passage which he considered inflammatory In the Cornwallis Papers vols ume 2 page 35 the suppressed passagep is however given as fo1owsrI have labored in consequence to cre ate a people in Ireland by raising three millions of my countrymen to the rank of citizens I have labored to abolish thetinfernal spirit of religious persecution by uniting time Catholics and Dissenters To the former I owe more than ever can bea repaid the services I was so fortunate as to render them they rewarded munifi cently But they did more When the public cry was raised against me when the frienas of my youth swarmed off andf left me alone the Catholics did not desert me they had the virtue even to sacrifice i their own interests to a rigid principle ofa honor They refused though strongly urged to disgrace a man who whatever his conduct toward the Government might have been had faithfully and con scientiously discharged his duty toward them and in so doing though it was insmy own case I will say they showed anII instance of public virtue and honor of which I know not whether there exists another exampletGen LoftusIf the remainder of your address Mr Tone is of the same com I plexion with what you have already reads will you not hesitate for a moment in proceeding since you have learned the opinion of the Court ToneI believe there is nothing in what remains for me to say which canII give any offence I mean to express my I feelings and gratitude toward the CathoII lic body in whose cause I was engaged Gen LoftusThat seems to have noth ing to say to the charge against you toIwhich only you are to speak If 01I have anything to offer in defense orII extenuation of that charge the Court will hear you but they beg that you will con fine yourself to that subjectII ToneI shall then confine myself toII some points relative to my connection with the French army Attached to no party in the French Republic without interest without money without in trigue the openness and integrity of my views raised me to a high and confiden till rank in its armies obtained theII confidence of the Executive Directory the approbation of my generals and IIventure to add the esteem and affection of my brave comrades When I review andeinternal consolation which no reverse of fortune no sentence in the power of this court to inflict can ever deprive me of or weaken in any degree Under the flag of the French Republic I originally engagedwith a view to save and liberate my own country For that purpose I have encountered the chances of war among strangers for that purpose I have repentealyLravedtheterorsoEthcoceamcovered umphant fleets of that power which it was my glory and my duty to oppose I have sacrificed all my views in life I have courted poverty I have left a belovedwife unprotected and children whom I adored fatherless After such sacrifices in a cause which I have always conscientiously considered as the cause of justice and freedom it is no great effort at this day to add the sacrifice of my life But I hear it said that this unfortunate country has been a prey to all sorts of horrors I sincerely lament it I beg however it may be remembered that I have been absent four years from Ireland To me these sufferings can never be attributed I designed by fair and open war to procure the separation of the two countries For open war I was prepared but if instead of that a system of private assassination has taken place I repeat while I deplore it that it is not charge able on me Atrocities it seems have been committed on both sides I do not less deplore them I detest them iron my heart and to those who know my char acter and sentiments I may Safely appeall for the truth of this assertion WithI them I need no justification- In a case like this success is every thing Success in the eyes of the vul gar fixes its merits Washington suc ceeded and Kosciusko failed After a combat nobly sustained a combat which would have excited the respectt and sympathy of a generous enemy my fate was to become a prisoner To the eternal disgrace of those who gave the order I was brought hither in irons like a felon I mention this for the sake ofr others for me I am indifferent to it I am aware of tha fate which awaits me andI scorn equally the tone of complaint and that of supplication AstGthc connection between thltt country and Great Britain I repeat itall that has been imputed to me words writings and actionsI here deliberately avow I have spoken and acted with reflection and on principles and am ready to meet the consequences Whatever be the sentence of this court I am prepared for it Its members will surely discharge their duty I shall take care not to be wanting in mine This speech was pronounced in a tone so magnanimous so full of a noble and calm serenity as seemed deeply and visi bly to affect all its hearers the members of the court not excepted A pause ensuedof some continuance and silence reigned in the hall till interrupted by Tone himscif who inquired whether it was not usual to assign an interval between the sentence and execution The Judge Advocate answered that the voices of the court would be collected without forthi oner therefore had any further observa tions to make now was the moment ToneI wish to offer a few words relative to one single point to the mode of punishment In France our Emigres who stand nearly in the same situation- in which I suppose I now stand before you are condemned to be shot I ask that the court should adjudge me the death of a soldier and let me be shot by platoon of grenadiers I request this indulgence rather in consideration of the which I wear the uniform of a Chef de Brigade in the French army than from any personal regard to myself In order to evince my claim to this favor Iebeg that the court may take the trouble to peruse my commission and letters of- ervice in the French army It will ap ear from these papers that I have not them as a mask to cover me but that I have been long and bona fide an officer in the French service Judge Advocate You must feel that papers you allude to will serve as un deniable proofs against you Tone Oh I know it well I have already admitted the facts and I now admit the papers as full proofs of con viction The papers were then exnmined They consisted of a brevet of Chef de Brigade the Directory signed by the Minister of War ofa letter of service grant ing to him the rank of aajutaut gencral of a passport Gen LoftusIn those papers you are designatedas serving in the army of France ToneI did serve in that army when it was commanded by Bonaparte by Dc c by Kilmaine who is as I am an Irishman But I have also served else where Requested if he had anything further observe he said that nothing more occurred to him except that the sooner his Excellencys approbation of their I was secured the better He would consider it as a favor if it could be i obtained in an hour Gen Loftus then observed that the court would undoubtedly submit to the Lord Lieutenant the address which heI lad rend to them and also the subject ofI his last demand In transmitting the address he however took care to efface all that part of it which he would not allow to be read and which contained the dying speech and last words of the first apostle of Irish union and martyr of IrishI liberty to his countrymen Lord Corn wallis refused the demand of my father and he was sentenced to die the death of a traitor in fortyeight hours ou No vember 12 ST BRIGIDS CHURCH FAIR The fair for the benefit of St Brigids church which was

much for Gardner Dixon can hit justI as hard as Gardner can and the probabil ities are that he will hit very much often er When Dixon is hitting clears it does not require many of his blows to knock a

John J Coppinger U S A goes on the army retired list this year on ac count of age He holds the rank of Brigadier General in the regular estab GenI eral of Volunteers at the outbreak of the war with Spain Gen Coppinger retired on October 11 His retirement necessi tates detachment from present command Gen Coppinger was the senior Major General of Volunteers appointed by Pres ident McKinley He was given command of the first division of regular troops mobilized in May last for the war with Spain and comprising the Tenth Eleventh Nineteenth Twentieth and andsthe Second and Fifth regiments of cavalry Born in 1835 a native of the County Cork Ireland of Catholic parentage he became at early manhood a soldier in the army of the Pope during the contest over VictoroEmanuel Young Coppinger by gallantry won a Lieutenantcy in the Papal Guard and for heroism in the defense of La Rocca gateway Rome he received decoration und the title of chevalier Com ling to America in the latter part of 1801 he was appointed Captain in the Four teenth UnIted States infantry At the second battle of Manassas Dull Run in 1862 he was so seriously wounded as to be left among the dead on the field He participated with the Union army of the Potomac in all the engagements o the Virginia campaigns of 1803 1804 an 1805 more than thirty pitched battles being again severely wounded at Appo mattox Station April 8 1805 the day be fore Gen Lee capitulated For gallantry and distinguished service in action Cop pinger received three brevet appoint incuts and at the close of the war was Colonelof the Fifteenth New York cav alrf His army record after the close of the civil war contains another brevet of Colonel affixed in 1808 for zeal and energy while in command of troops operatingagainst hostile Indians min 1806 1869rHis military qualities won for hint the friendship and admiration of Major Gen eral Custer who in 1804 declared that as a soldier he regarded Col Coppinger a model in bravery efficiency and modesty Gen Torbert said that Col Cop pinger has proved one of the most gal lant and efficient officers I have ever met Gen Sherman in recommending Copt Coppinger for the head of a regi medt said No officer of the service is positiongWith such a record as a soldier and with such indorsements from brother officers as are quoted above it was but natural that the friends of Gen Coppinger confidently expected that the war with Spain would afford him opportunity to close his active military life of devotion to his adopted country with added lau rels But Gen Coppinger was effectively retired at the opening of the war so far as active service is concerned It is true that the soldiers under his command re ceived the benefit of experience have been well drilled and disciplined and enjoyed good health while under him Though an ideal soldier and a strict disciplinarian the General while in Mobile won the love of every man under him regular and volunteer His head quarters were in a tent wherever the Fourth Army Corps was camped Modest oftthe manner in which he has been over looked by the War Department or of the conduct or misconduct of the war has he uttered Gen Coppinger married a daughter recently deceased of the late James G malneIA WONDERFUL CHOIR In the choir of St Peters at Rome there is not a female voice and yet the most difficult oratorios and sacred music written are rendered in such a manner as to make one think Adelina Patti is lead ling The choir is composed of sixty boys They are trained for the work from the time they get control of their vocal chords and some of the best singers are not over nine years old At the age of seventeen they are dropped from the choir To say that in that famous edifice one hears the grandest church

that the company this seaon is an exceedingly jstrong one and an excellent rendition this play is assured It will be staged ofI a most careful and elaborate Owing to the meeting of the Grand of Masons of the State of Jodgejj which meets on Tuesday Thursday of next week the performance will take place as follows Monday afternoon and night and resuming with night performance on Thursday evening and continuing the remainder of the week This is the only broken time they shall love throughout the season Remember no performance on Tuesday or Wednesday and no matinee on Thursday Mr Thomas Reynolds a popular member of the Meffert Stock Company is one of the most talented actors of our day He was born in Chicago of very respect iable and welltodo parents and even in his childhood he had a great liking to the stage and his chief study was elocution He would speak for hours those pieces he had learned in school and never did he refuse to speak his lines for those who desired to hear him Ifa concert or entertainment of any kind was going on in his neighborhood in Chicago the first thing that was done was to ask if Master Tom Reynolds was asked to speak and the answer was always Yes and he accepted Thus we can see that Mr Reynolds was from his early childhood an actor He has been on the stage for seven years during which time he has y MR Of l L companydReynolds first engagement was with Margaret Mather the celebrated actress with whom he remained for two seasons He then went to fill a position with Charles Frohmans company which he held for three seasons playing the lead ing parts in

treat next week in A Grip of Steel a new play to the theatergoers of Louis ville and in fact new to this country The scenery and stage settings are new and the play is very nicely staged but the surroundings pale before the magnificent acting of Mr Henry Bedford in the role of Ronjarre alias Gaston Lamire alias Capt Hercules Built like a lion he electrifies the audience with his exhibitions of strength The climax of the play occurs in the fourth act when Ronjarre clutches the throat of the traitor to the robber gang Simon Gandelu and shakes him until the life is choked out of him The powerful arms of Mr Bedford are very much in evidence in this scene and the heart of the gallery god is touched The support accorded Mr Bedford is fine Henriette the robbers blind wife is well played by Helen Weathersby Louis Mascarot a lieutenant in the U S navy is the hero and the part is well taken by Walter G Horton The story of the play is laid in Prance and is a beautiful and touching one The plot is well worked out and contains a number of startling climaxes all of which THOMAS M REYNOLDS the Meffert Stock Company Riders loadof IIare well done by the company The work of RT Sullivan as Mich Mahoney is natural in the extreme and would make a man laugh even if his motherinlaw had just died The seats areselling rapidly for Patrick OSullivans farewell concert to be given at Library Hall

here completedwithin its boundaries And what is the subject of this manel ot the foundry None other than the old Pagan god Panthe monster from whom it is said his mother fled in affright when irewas born so hideous was he Pan we are told in the mythologies was the terror of travelers and probably it was for that reason the statue of that satyr was bestowed upon the city by the satirical benefactor the late Mr Alfred Corning Clark The travelers who have experienced the tender mercies of New York hotel system or those of the flat janitor will admit that Pan is not an inappropriate genus loci As it is from Pan we derive panic Wall street will behold a sinister meaning in clapping Pan up in the Central Park suryeying the mansions of the Goulds and the Vanderbilts We hope they will remove the statues of Daniel Webster Shakespeare and other decent people from that enclosure now that the brutal Pagan deity is to be set up there and leave the place where you are warned to keep
