Jeffersonville at 10 oclock Monday night came as a shock to his many friends in that city and Louisville While he had at times complained of stomach trouble his con dition was not regarded as serious

Mr Joseph S Cun ningham formerly stationed at the Quar termasters Department in Jeffersonvills Mr Cuuninghatn was selected because of his exceeding ability to fill an impartant position in the Government service in Cuba and his letters will prove both In structive and entertaining He writes from Tampa under date of October 1C TAMPA FIA Oct toWe arrived here safe this morning at 11 oclock After we left Louisville the weather be gan to grow very chilland remained so untilwe reached Montgomery Ala The country was very poorlooking and uninteresting until we reached Sanford Fla where we saw very beautiful orange groves But of course you know their beauty is always exaggerated by people who write and talk about this country We saw mile after mile of as miserable and swampy land as exists in the world We will stay in Tampa until tomorrow and will npt reach Havana before Wednes day morning We have to stop at Key West for twelve hours I have been all over Tampa today and it is a city of about 25000 Inhabitants I went to the Cuban quarter and found a large number of Cubans who have been living there since the war broke out They manutacture cigars and a few keep restaurants fruit stands and one has a drug store It is called in Spanish Farmacia or El Botica The Cubans are very vehement in their speech and make use of a grabnrauyxulatioaeAEtc vtsit ing the hotel called Alcazas Americanos I visited the finest hotel in the world This seems to he a big assertion but when I tell you that it cost over 3000000 you will believe that it is something extraor dinary It was built by II B Plant He seems to own nearly everything in this part of the conntry He is the owner of the largest railroad system in Florida and two or three steamship lines He built this hotel for the use of rich friends up North who can afford to pay anywhere from fij up to fij0 per day for rooms There are thirty acres covered withevery known plant that grows in the tropics The buildiugs are Moorish in architecture and are covered with domes and minarets just the same as in Constantinople or any Oriental city Each minaret is sur mounted by a gilded crescent I walked around the place looking for some one in authority but for a long while could find no one for the season has not as yet opened Finally I met an old Ger man who is the caretaker of the place He very kindly showed me over the grounds and conducted me through a1lI of his hothouses I saw oranges pineapples cocoanuts lemons bananas qndI nearly every fruit that grows in theI tropicalzone He showed me the Casino and it contained besides billiard rooms club rooms etc a large swimming poof and a theater capable of seating 1300 people I send you a small book con taining a better description of the place As I walked around the place seeing no one I thought of a story in the Arabian Nights where a traveler going into a magnificent city found the streets empty He finally went into the houses and the few people he saw were dead or asleep When we reach Havana I willwrite and tell you all about our trip across the Gulf and tell you something of the beau ties of Cuba JosKPH S CUNNINGHAM RECENT DEATHS The news of

Next Monday night a longstanding rivalry wilt be settled when Jim Janey of Washington D C tangles up with Jim Watts the local colored middle weight These fighters met last January in Janeys home and they boxed eight rounds The fighting was even up untilI the last round when Janey got his good hand heavily to the Pendennis Pets jawI and he was knocked down and the bout stopped Since then Watts has insisted on another try at the Black Demon as he Is called in the East The local man claims that Janey came to him before the contest and asked him to agree not to tryI for a knockout and that he Watts as sented but in the last round Janey broke faith and copped him Janey through his manager Al Herford vigorously de nied this story and then commenced aI war of talk Up to about a month ago in spite of the accusations and challenges that both men were prolific with they seemed as far from becoming matched as ever when And11yfu 11Ran of the Lo isy- tvII e Athletic Club interestedt himself in the matter to the extent of completing arrangements for the men to settle their difficulty and differences of opinion be fore his club Both men signed the little managers contract and at once quit talk ing and got down to work Janey de cided to do his training at Washington in company with Joe Gans and Jake Mc Cabe Janey is a harricane rusher on the Walcott order and richly deserves the title Black Demon He fights all the time when in the ring and can go through a hail of punishment without a tremor Watt has probably trained harder for this contest than for any other since he adopted the ring as a profession for he knows that to lose this fight means that he is what is known to the sporting fra ternity as a dead olieI An interesting preliminary has been arranged in the tenI round bout between Tommy McQuaid and Kid St Claire McQuaid wasi seen at Music Hall several weeks ago in a preliminary bout with George Bloemer He was at a disadvantage at that time from height reach and weight but heI fought back manfully whenever his big opponent rushedand was just as good as the other fellow at the close In St Claire he meets a man his own size and it is probable that he will make it exceed ingly interesting for that worthy for awhile A New York dispatch states that James J Corbett left that city for West Baden Springs Ind Monday where he expects j to do a little preliminary training for his fight with Tom Sharkey which js sched uled to come off at the Lenox Athletic Club on November 22 The exchampion will remain at the springs for at least tenI days Corbett was

People Will Not See Ireland Suffer Much Longer From Disunion A NEW SPIRIT PREACHED IN IRELAND A complhnentnry banquet was recently given to Mr J F Egan City Sword bearer at the National Club Rutland square Dublin There was a good at tendance of friends of the expolitical prisoner Apart from the speeches which were stirring and interesting several pleasing songs were contributed during the night thus affording enjoyment as well as instructor to the assemblage Mr John Clanccy presided Letters of apol ogy were received from the Mayor of Cork Dr J E Denny Messrs J P Camic T C and J P Nanetti At the conclusion of the dinner Mr Pierce Mahony proposed the toast of Ireland a Nation The political faith of this day he said had its origin in 1708 If Grattan and his band could suc ceed in reforming the Irish Parliament they never would have had the revolution of 1708 It was however owing to the 1898 rebellion that Catholic emancipation had been won It was to those patriots they owed the movement of 1818 1865 and 1807 and it was to the movement of 1865 and 1807 they owed the movement of Mr Parnell It was perfectly true Mr Parnell had been laid in the grave without having completed the great work he had taken up but Parnell had shown them what a strong National party could do in the British Parliament He had shown that if there was in that Parlia ment a body of men united with only one object in view and that object the good of Ireland and the Irish people they could make themselves not onlyrespected 1n1fteaT5l4 Tlr e p t aftre gha a years he was sorry to say Parliament any parties in Ireland had not presented a very happy spectacle to the world They had had the spectacle of men who fought uuder the late Mr Parnell fought suc cessfully and who forced even their English opponents in the British House of Commons to respect themthey had had the unhappy spectacle of these then falling foul of one another saying things of one another that he was perfectly certain many of them in their better mo ments bittery regretted If they believed as he believed that it was the very es sence and life of a nation to be self governed if they felt sure as he felt sure that they never could make anything of this island until they were a selfgov erned people and by having the powers selfgovernment they were filled with the spirit of independence and selfreli anceif they believed all that they would agree with him that it was worth making any sacrifice to obtain it He believed now there was no British Gov ernment could withstand them llonger if Irelandspoke in the British House of Commons with a united voice He did not want to drive out of public life in Irelandany man who represented any section of Nationists They had got to learn to make the best of one another If they tried to make the best of every Irishman who was working according to his lights for the good of Ireland they may well hope to see an Irish Parliament sitting in College green an Irish govern ment administering the couutrya gov ernment which for its ability they should look upon with pride and in whose jus tice all creeds and classes would feel themselves perfectly safe The toast was drunk with enthusiasm- Mr Field M P in responding said they upheld the traditions of their fore fathers from the earliest times in maintaining that this land was a nation They were today in their divisions a force to be reckoned with Unity amongst Irishmen must be founded on a basis which would lead to the practical independence of Ireland and all its people The Chairman proposed Our Guest Mr Egan could truly say that though suffering unparalled persecution weal andwoe hehad done one mans part for the good old land Mr Egan in rising to respond was cordially received He intended in the future to support unity He thanked God he saw there was a new spirit preached in America and in Ireland that the people would n6t permit their country to suffer much longer from the curse of disunion that there were men pre pared to crush everything before them for the love of their land They did not care who stood in the road let his reputation be as big as it may be that man must valk aside at the bidding of the Nationalists of Ireland He promised them that his services and even his life would be at the disposal of his country Mr J H OConnor expolitical prisoner proposed Our brethren in prison and

advocacy of land grabbing will bring on the people of the country All of the wellwishers of this coun try among the statesmen and think ers of other nations foretell what will be the inevitable result An hicreased navy a large standing army rind a huge pension list will oppress the people A spirit of militarism will be rampant and our Government will be a republic in name only The first great step to ward the destruction of our liber ties if it is ever accomplished will be the proposed AngloAmerican alliance There seems to be an or ganized conspiracy among certain newspapers of this country to do everything to foster the proposed alliance They do not stop at the grossest misrepresentation But one by one the lies that have been in vented to deceive the American people are exposed Hoshi the late Japanese Minister in an interview last week ridiculed the idea of an AngloAmerican alliance and said that Japan would oppose it in every possible manner He furthermore said that Japan would not stand idly by and see the Philippine arch ipelago pass into the hands of either Great Britain or the United StatesCount Cassini the Russian Minister at Washington said that such an alliance would bring untold evils on the United States and it would beta gratuitous insult to the rest of EuropeEvery true American citizen in voting for Congressmen this fall should see that the candidate to whom he gives his suffrage is not tinctured with the virus of Anglo mania REDISTRIBUTION Redistribution may fairly be said to be in the air For the past week the English newspapers have had little or nothing else to write about and the Unionist organs of the baser sort howl with dervishlike delight over the prospect of the Irish repre sentation being lopped off says the editor of the Syracuse Catholic Sun The Unionists are afraid of the present constituences In 1895 when they were returned to power by a series of accidents and by the A very narrowest of majorities in scores of constituencies their pledges and promises fell as thick as snowflakes from the hustings Three years have passed and mur murs of disappointment are heard throughout England at the failure of Lord Salisbury and Mr Cham berlain to perform the promises of reform that were made in 1896 This Government with the largest majority of modern times has proved itself one of the weakest that everi sought to govern Eng land The next general appeal to the constituencies can not be far off Lord Salisbury knows that the day of reckoning is at hand when the electors will demand an account of his stewardship and will find that he set his face against re form at home and frittered away British prestige to foreign powers Afraid as they are of the present constituencies the constituencies must be manipulated and accord i ingly the cry of Justice to Eng land is raised but as Mr Fletcher points out in the New Age it is not justice for England that is wanted but protection for the Unionist mar jority If Ireland sent a majority of Unionists instead of Nationalists to Westminster we should hear 0 uothiujfbf this cry Redistribution on this line would be a mere elec tioneering trick at the expense of Ireland because Ireland will not I ProfIno hope of conyerting Ireland to their views for as Mr Fletcher accurately di agnoses the situation it is the con viction that Ireland will remain faithful to the cause her people have never deserted that underlies the Unionist proposals If Mr Chamberlain brings forward redistribution he will find the Radicals anxious for registration reform of the most sweeping kinda reform that would tell against the Union ists particularly in the large towns where the working classes are hand icapped by antiquated machinery of registration YOUR DUTY Every IrishAmerican in the Fifth Congressional district will support Turner for Congress if he under stands the facts of the political sit uation If elected he will represent the people His opponent Mr Evans represents everything that is vicious in the religious intoler ance manifested by the illiberal and ignorant secret society to which he belongs Mr Turner on the other hand is bound to no set of men and will be bound to none but all men whatever their nationality or religious predilections will receive equal consideration at his hands It may be depended upon that Mr Turner will never stop to inquire whether his fellowcitizen asking his services or assistance is Catholic or Protestant His love of liberty and justice is too deep to permit of such a query rising in his mind The fair and broadminded people of the Fifth district will send himt to represent them in Congress if they only do their duty on election day THE DEVILS WORK In the province of Counaught in Ireland there are 50000 families whose normal condition is poverty bordering on famine Talking of those families William OBrien said the other day There are fully 50000 tenants in the province whose holdings would have to be doubled and trebled in size before they could hope to earn a decent subsistence in the land of their fathers Every four or five years the potatoes fail and these 50000 peasant families are depending for bread on the humiliating and de grading charity 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 ten antry who were afterward ban ished to the Curlew Mountains There never was a more gross or a more impudent lie than that this province of Connaught is so naturally barren that the people must starve Why in the County Roscominou alone there is grazing land enough to give farms of a rea sonable size to every family on the relief list of the Dublin Mansion House Committee In voting for the Hon Oscar Turner for Congress the Irish American citizen may feel assured that he is voting for a man who will support the equal rights and privi leges of all citizens whatever their religion or nationality He is broad tolerant and patriotc a friend of the people and a champion of the oppressed A vote for Turner is a vote for the principles of liberty and good government Y KEsJrUCK5l IRISH AlMERICAN Mr John Grognn is succeeding very well atJ1I kcbinson Norton Cos Mr Dom Martin of East Laurel street is improving somewhat

he having left home about 11 oclock that morning in the best of health and spirits The shock was not lessened when it was learned that Mr OLeary had died on the oper ating table and before he had been touched with a knife Chloroform had proved fatal to him when the anaesthetic was applied preparatory to the perform ance ofa minor operation Death byI chloroform narcosis is the technical term for the cause of death Patrolman OLeary for over two years had been suffering from a sore on the little toe of his left foot It first appeared to be a corn and he treated it with corn salves and plasters but these effected no cure and the sore became worse btIcoming an open raw spot Of late it had troubled him so much that he decided toI secure medical treatment His physicians advised him that he was suffering from aI cancer and its removal with the knifeI was necessary To this OLearyconscnted hoping to gain relief in this mannerI On Tuesday evening OLeary was to have gone to the infirmary for the pur pose of having the operation performed but was told to come Wednesday This appointment he filled The physicians believed that he could easily survive the effects of chloroform which was administered by one Who is regardedas an expert OLeary was however not of a nature to bear the anaesthetic and became violently ill The surgeons then gave up administering chloroform and worked to revive him After an hour and a half or longer the patient died The operation had not even been begun before it was found that OLeary was too sensitive to the anaestheticThe officer lived on Columbia

of Unanimity Between All Glasses of Irishmen A Common Effort to Increase the Freedom and Happi nets of All WOLFE TONE THE ORIGINAL FOUNDER To every lover of freedom the name of Theobald Wolfe Tone is very dear To build up an Irish State free from nil foreign control was the one object of his life There could be no Irish freedom he thought while England exercised any authority in the island and to overthrow English tyranny was the end fr which he strove with marvelous energy and persistenceIn 1791 a general committee of the Catholics of Ireland met in Dublin and resolved to apply to Parliament for relief front their disabilities The Catho lics had hitherto refrained from agitation The most active men of the Catholic committee at this time were John Keogh Richard McCormic John Sweetman Ed ward Byrne and Thomas Braughall Tone a young barrister of considerable talent and of an ardent disposition prof fered his services to promote their cause as did likewise Simon Butler and some other Protestants and the accession of such men gave a fresh impulse to their efforts and roused them to the adoption of more decisive language than they had hitherto used- Nothing was more calculated to excite the jealousy of the English Government than this fellowship of Catholics and Protestants and on the other hand the friends of the popular cause saw that nothingwas more necessary to promote their views than unanimity between all classes of Irishmen- In September 1791 Tone published An Argument on Behalf of the Catho lics of Ireland This work brought him into more intimate relation with the Catholic leaders who askad him to accept the Secretaryship the Catholic Com mittee To form a society with all classes of Irishmen Tone visited Belfast and on October 18 1791 at the invitation of a volunteer club composed or Samuel Neil son and Thomas Russell and in cor junction with them founded the Society of United Irishmen He then returned to Dublin and with Napper Tandy Simon Butler and others founded a similar society in the metrop olis It was Tones one endeavor to so form a society which should unite every religion in one common effort to increase the freedom and happiness of all In this endeavor he was eminently success ruleThe scattered particles of the old volunteers of 1782 gradually merged into this society they were Catholics Presby terians and liberal Protestants the Cath olics formed the great majority The two latter classes joined for reform of Parliament religious liberty the abolition of tithes and all other abuses The Catholics joined for all the above pur poses and they had superadded the strong motive of their own protection and emancipation to urge them on The fundamental resolutions of the society were FirstvThat the weight of English influence in the government of this country is so great as to require a tordial union among all the people of Ireland to maintain that balance which is essential to the preservation of our lib erties and the extension of our commerce SecondThat the sole constitutional mode by which this influence can be opposed is bya complete and radical reform of the representation in Parlia ment Third That no reform is just which does not include every Irishman of every religious persuasion Such were the principles of the first United Irish menThe test of the first society of United Irishmen was as follows I in the presence of God do pledge myself to my country that I will use all my abili ties and influence in tie attainment of an impartial and adequate representation of the Irish nation in Parliament and as a means ofiabsolutc and immediate neces sity in the establishment of this chief good of Ireland I will endeavor as much C as lies in my ability to forward brotherhood of affection and identity of interest a communion of right and a union of power among Irishmen of all religious persuasionswithout which every reform in Parliament must be partial not na tional inadequate to the wants delusive to the wishes and insufficient for the freedom and happiness of this country Strictly speaking says Madden the historian of the United Irishmen Samuel Neilson was the originator and Theo bald Wolfe Tone the organizer of the stt ciety the framer of its declaration the penman to whom the details of its forma ttion was intrusted- A Declaration of Irish Grievances on the Formation of the Society of the United Irishmen written by Wolfe Tone I Copied in facsimile from a volume printed in 1794 for the private use of members of the original boards of United IrishmenIn present great era of reform when unjust governments are falling in every quarter of Europe when religious persecution is compelled to abjure her tyranny over conscience when the rights of men are entertained in theory and r that theory substantiated by practice when antiquity can no longer defend absurd Rod oppressive forms against the common sense and common interests of niankipd when aU government is ac kttowledgsd to originate trouitha peoples 11rt r o and to be so far only obligatory as it pro tects their rights and promotes their wel fare we think it our dutyas Irishmen to come forward and state what we feel to be our heavy grievance and what we know to be its effectual remedy hVe have no national government We are ruled by Englishmen and the servants of Englishmen whose object is the interest of another country whose instrument is corruption whose strength is the weakness of Ireland and these men have the whole of the power and patron age of the country as means to seduce andsubdue the honesty and the spirit of her representatives in the legislature Such an extrinsic power acting with uni form force in a direction too frequently opposite to the true line of our obvious interests can be resisted with effect solely by unanimity decision and spirit in the people qualities which may be exerted most legally constitutionally and efficaciously by that great measure es sential to the prosperity and freedom of Irelandan equal representation oral1 the people in Parliament We do not here mention as grievances the rejection of a place bill of a pension biltor responsibility bill the sale of peerages in one house the corruption publicly avowed in the other nor the notorious infamy of borough traffic be twecn both not that we are insensible of their enormity but that we consider them as but symptoms of that mortal disease which cortodes the vitals of our constitution and leaves to the people in their own government but the shadow of a name Impressed with these sentiments we have agreed to form an association to be called the Society of United Irishmen and we do pledge ourselves to our country and mutually to each other that we will steadily support and endeavor by all due means to carry into effect the following resolutions- I Resolved That the weight of Eng lish influence in the government of this country is so great as to require a cordial union among all the people of Ireland to maintain that balance which is essen tial to the preservation of our liberties and the extension of our commerce- II That the sole constitutional mode by which this influence can be opposed is by a complete and radical reform of the representation of the people in Par liamentIII That no reform is practicable efficacious or just which shall not include Irishmen of every religious persuasion Satisfied as we are that the intestine divisions among Irishmen have too often given encouragement and immunity to audacious and corrupt administrations in measures which but for these divis ions they durst not have attempted we submit our resolutions to the nation as the basis of our political faith We have gone to what we conceive to be the root of the evil we have stated what we conceive to be the remedy With a Parliament thus reformed every thing is easy without it nothing can be done And we do call on and most earnestly exhort our countrymen in gen eral to follow our example and form similar societies in every quarter of the kingdom for time promotion of constitu tional knowledge the abolition of bigotry in religion and politics and the equal distribution of the rights of man through all sects and denominations of Irishmen The people when thus collected will feel their own weight and secure that power which theory has already admitted as their portion and to which if they be not aroused by their present provoca tions to vindicate it they desire to forfeit their pretentious for ever James Napper Tandy Secretary Such were the principles of the first United Irishmen Their society was perfectly constitutional and in every re spect as legal as any of the numerous po litical clubs which at that time existed in England and Ireland The grand principle of the society was that of union among all classes of Irishmen it was this which marked it as as specially dangerous in the eyes of a Government which like every Irish Gov ernment since the earliest English rule in that country relied on the contrary principle of division among the people and it was this which gave the society so much influence NEVER At Dublin October 10 the Parnellite convention was opened with Mr John Redmond presiding During the course of his speech Mr Redmond remarked that it was incred ible that a statesman with Mr Chamber lains experince and astuteness should de clare that the passing of the Irish Local Government bill satisfied the aspirations of Irishmen The Parnellites he added would not be satisfied until they secured home rule- Resolutions were passed in favor of home rule approving the local Government act denouncing the project of an AngloAmerican alliance and urging the release of political prisoners The following is the text of the resolu tion denouncing the proposal of an An gloAmerican alliance This convention denounces the project of an nliiance between Great Britain and the United States as a selfish attempt on the part of England to drag the Ameri can people to its aid in its struggles with the powers of Europe among whom it now stands by reason of its bad faith absolutely isolated- Consequently as friends of America we the members of this convention hope that the Republic will not allow itself to be embroiled in European squabbles from which however these may result it can not derive any corresponding advantage for American interests HARVARD PROFESSOR STUDYING GAELIC Dr P N Robinson professor of Irish in Harvard University is at present so journing among the natives of Conne mara studying the intricacies of the spoken

Body at San Juan Hill On a Leaf Is an Inscription the Only Means of Identify lug Him Nothing to Indicate time Itcgi mcnt to Which He Belonged THE STORY OF THE GREAT BATTLE Mr E Collins of Sugar Grove county 111 writes to the Post that he has in his possession a memento which would doubt less be regarded as priceless by the friends of some dead and unknown American hero who fell at Santiago He is endeav oring to locate the friends or relatives of the deceased soldier and has solicited the aid of the Post in his search Mr Collins story is that while rev cently en route front New York to Chi cago he made the acquaintance on the train of Private Aljihus Van Lacys of Troop K First United States Volunteer Cavalry the Rough Riders who was on his way to Colorado Springs to rest and allow his leg to recover from an ugly wound made by a Spanish brasscovered bullet at the battle of San Juan Hill The two men engaged in conversation to while away the long hours of the journey and as was quite natural the war and the recent experiences of the Rough Riders were the chief topics of conversation Before parting the soldier placed in Mr Collins care a pocket manuel of Catholic devotion with the request to find if possible some one who wonld treasure the little volume The tale related by Trooper Van Lacys of how he came into the pos session of the little book is an interesting one and discloses one of the saddest feat ures of war As told in the soldiers own words the story is as follows Two days after the battle of San Juan Hill I in company with Private Ladley left camp on a foraging expedition We tramped laboriously through the tall wet grass when suddenly we came upon the dead body of an American soldier lying face downward upon the damp ground He had evidently been killed by a large projectile for the lower part of his face and neck were entirely torn away His hat belt and other equipments were gone so that there was nothing to indicate the regiment to which he had belonged As sisted by my comrade I made a grave for the poor fellow and as we bent down to lift the tireless hero and place him in thin lonely resting place which we had so has tily and improvisedly constructed for him I noticed a little black book with a golden cross stamped upon it protruding from his blue shirt pocket just over his heart liAs we gently raised the body the vol ume fell to the ground There was nothing else found upon the body which might lead to an identification Tenderly we deposited our sacred burden in its humble and solitary grave and after of fering a silent prayer to heaven we cov ered the poor fellow as best we could with earth and turned sadly away Before going however we marked the spot by driving a pole made of a branch of a lmango tree into the ground at his head As we walked away I bent and picked up the book and without opening it placed it in my pocket intending to retain it as a reminder of the sad event The volume as stated is a small man ual of Catholic devotion evidently pre sented to the dead soldier upon enlistment by some dear friend a sister mother or sweetheartand treasured highly by him for he carried it next to his heart and kept it with him when he had absolutely nothing else On the title page are the words The Vest Pocket Manual of Catholic Devotion McCauley Kilner Pub fishers Baltimore On the flyleaf al most illegible and therefore perhaps incorrect iis the inscription Mamie E McGee or McGar Washington D C 1815 M st In the book were found several little cards of devotional nature One is printed in German and another contains the words written across the top evidently in womans handwriting IISay this prayer to our Gal to bless and save you from all danger during the war On the reverse side of the card a line is drawn about the words addressed To Ouf Lady of Victory jrhe Rough Rider informed Mr Collins that he was glad to be relieved of his treasured burden as each time he looked upon it there was brought back to him the terrible picture of the soldier with his face so horribly mangled and as the body had lain for several days exposed to the sun and rains it presented a most sicken ing sight Mr Collins holds the little volume as a sacred trust for the friends or relatives of the dead hero and will gladly surrender it to those who are en titled to it upon satisfactory proof being furnishedThe Mamie E McGee or Mantle K McGar does not appear in the city directory and no one is known by that name at 1815 M street the address given and the neighbors know ofno one having lived there formerly

diocese J Q t C t U SECRETARY HAY ON ALLIANCE Several newspapers attribute to Colonel John Hay the statement that an alliance between this country and Great Britain Is desirable It would seem almost incred- Ible that Colonel Hay upon the threshold of the State Department should make such an illadvised statement Neverthe less dispatches from different sources iu New York agrees in quoting his utter ances in favor of an AngloAmerican combination Colonel Hay must realize that as Sec retary of State he can have but one legit imate rule of action namely to adminis ter our foreign affairs for the profit power and glory of the United States of North America Any purpose conflicting with this rule can be due only to an entire misconception of duty on his part The glamor thrown around the scheme for binding our fortunes to the failing cause of England in Europe ought to be the last subject to occupy Colonel Hays attention at the present moment He should understand that the dream of an AngloAmerican alliance is cherished only by a few Anglomaniacs our Atlantic seaboard a group sentimental mugwumps and a few score of pulpit diplomatists and that it has no hold whatever on the masses of the American peopleThis country has become suddenly great and powerful by its own efforts It has brought within its grasp vast possi bilities of aggrandizement and riches without the help of any foreign hand It has reached plane of unexpected influ ence and strength among the nations of the earth and the purpose of its people is to stand there of their own volition and of their own inherent power without allowing any other nation to appropriate to itself the benefits which Americans fought for and which Americans have wonThe American people have heard enough front denationalized idealogues of the Phelps Abbott and Schurz class who long asserted that America could become great only through the assistance of England They have proved with their blood and with their money that they are a great nation capable of rev maining great by of and within them selves How preposterous then for any man to conic before them with a proposition to seek foreign aid that they do not need in return for American interference in affairs that in nowise concerns this re publicCol Hay should turn to the London Truth of September 8 if he wishes to see an English refutation of his own utter ances Here is a frank explanation of British reasons for trying to implicate this republic in British difficulties and sacrifice its interests to British ends We find ourselves coldshouldered by the great continental powers of Europe and we are terribly affrighted lest our commercial supremacy in the Far East should suffer for they are all competing with us here and Russia has secured her self a land route to China We there fore have been for the last two or three months suggesting to the Americans that as they arc our kith and kin they out to join with us in some sort of an alliance A country is actuated by its own interests alone and a more thoroughly practical nation than the Americans does not exist on the globe Even supposing that they were to retain the Philippines they would do their best to remain friends with all other nations and the particular ally of none for the plain and simple reason that this is to their interest We feel sure that the great mass of Americans will sympathize with us in the statement that these words of an English man would have come with a much better grace from our new Secretary of State than the unwise and undiplomatic statement with which he has saluted the American people whose national interest he has been chosen to safeguard exclusively and selfishly against all com ersChicago InterOcean t IT COULD NOT DE DONE Boys began the

provide for us asks the Dublin Independent The latest importation from the New World is factor chimneys practically ready made The Dublin Tramway Company have put up two of them on their inw premises adjoining the Ringsend basin where they are erecting new and extensive power houses for their electric system The chimneys which are made of iron throughout are sent across the Atlantic n circular sections which fit one on an other and are rivetted together a plat form on which is a working forge trav cling upward as the work progresses The time occupied in the erection ofone of these chimneys is of course as nothing compared to the building of a brick struc ture and when finished it has a much lighter and more graceful appearance The chimneys rest on a solid square base of stone and brickwork some fifteen feet high and are slightly bellshaped the bottom An iron ladder for cleaning and painting purposes travels from the stone platform to the top The chimneys at Ringsend arc of very great height much higher than any similar structures in or about Dublin The powerhouse of the Cork Electric Tramway Company is fitted in a similar manner HE LEARNED HIS LESSON This is a straight story said the grocery clerk whose veracity has never been impeached It happened in our store A little boy came into our Market street store on Monday and waited for some one to notice him He carried a sheet of writing paper in his hand at which he glanced from time to time One of the idle clerks came to him finally and the boy reading from his paper an nounced in a singsong voice My mother wants ten pounds of rice fifteen pounds of sugar twelve pounds of oatmeal twenty pounds of Hold out interrupted the clerk Not so fast Sup pose you give me that paper and Ill fill out the order But the boy insisted on calling off the articles himself Two other clerks were pressed into service and the three men proceeded to do up the various packages as the bey called them off He wanted all kinds of things and he asked the price ofeach article as they went along making a note of it on his paper The clerks had the counter stacked with packages when the boy wound up with eighteen pounds of flour One of the clerks called out the price and the boy continued in his singsong voice and how much money does my mother have to pay for her groceries One of the clerks counted up the total and announced it at 1873 The boy made a note of it and started out Come back here where are you going cried the clerks in chorus Why said the boy as he made for the door thats jest me rithmetic lesson for Monday I

James Shields placed among other monuments to the heroes of the nation in the rotunda of the Captol at Washington is now engaged in seeking to have a similar statue placed on the lake front in Chicago as Gen Shields commanded Illinois toops in both the Mexican anolcivll wars and was also a United States Senator from Illinois as well as from Minnesota and Missouri Several IrishAmericans of note have

me to say what details shall enter into the treaty of peace which America is con cluding with her vanquished foe I stand in the presence of the chief magistrate of the republic To him it belongs by right of official position and of personal wis dom to prescribe those details The country has learned from the nets of his administration that to his patriotism his courage his prudence she may well cou fide her safety her honor her destiny her peace Whatever the treaty of Spain America will be pleased when appended to this treaty is the name of William McKinleyWhat may speak of on this occasion is results of the war manifest even at this hour to America and to the world trans cending and independent of nil treaties of peace possessing for America and for the world a meaning far mightier than mere accumulation of material wealth or commercial concessions or territorial extensionTo things to meet fitly great responsibilities a nation like a person must be conscious of its dignity and its power The consciousness of what she is andwhat she may be has come to Amer ica She knows that she is a great nationThe elements of greatness were not imparted by the war but they were revealed to her by the war and their vitality and their significance were in creased through the war To take its proper place among the older nations of the earth a nation must be known as she is to those nations The world today as never before knows and confesses the greatness and the power of America The world today admires and respects America The young giant of the west heretofore neglected and almost despised in his remoteness and isolation has begun to move as becomes his stature the world sees what he is and pict ures what he may be All this does not happen by chance or accident An allruling Providence directs the movements of humanity What we witness is a momentous dispensation from the Master of men MagnusI ab Integra saeculorum nascitur ordowith the revolution of centuries there is born to the world a new order of things sang the Mantuan poet at the birth of the Augustan age So today we proclaim a new order of things has appeared America is too great to be isolated from the world around her and beyond her She is i world power to whom no world interest is alien whose voice teaches afar whosespirit travels across seas and moun tain ranges to most distant continents and islands and with America goes fa andwide what America in her grandest ideal represents democracy and liberty a government of the people by the people for theJ people This is Americanism more than American territory or American shipping or American soldiery Where this grandest ideal of American life is not held supreme America has not reached where this ideal is supreme America reigns The vital significance of Americas triumphs is not understood unless by those triumphs is understood the triumph of democracy and of liberty- If it was ever allowed to nations to rejoice over the results of their wars America may rejoice today Shall we then chant the praises of war and change this jubilee of peace into a jubilee of war Heaven forbid We love peace not war The greatness of America makes it imperative upon her to profess peacepeace today peace tomorrow Her mission as u world power demands that she be a messenger an advocateof peace before the world Pain would we make her jubilee of peace a jubilee of peace for all nations At least the message from it to the world shall be a message of peace That at times wonderful things conic throughwar we must admit but that they come through war and not through the methods of peaceful justice we must ever regret When they do come through war their beauty and grandeur ar dimmed by the memory of the sufferings and cartage which were their price We say in defense of war that its purpose is justice but it is worthy of Chris tian civilization that there is no othe- way to justice than war that nations are forced to stoop to the methods of the ani mal and savage Time was when indi viduals gave battle to one another in the name of justice it was the time of social barbarism Tribunals have since taken to themselves the administration of justice and how much better it is for th happiness and progress of mankind It is force or chance that decides the issu of the battle Justice herself is not heard the decision of justice iIz what it wasI before the battle the judgment of on party Must we not hope that with the widening influence of reason and of relig ion among men the day is approaching when justice shall be enthroned upon great international tribunal before whichI nations shall bow demanding from iit judgment and peace Say what we will our civilization is a vain boast Till the war drum throbs no longer an the battle flags are furled In the parliament of man the federation- of the world There the common sense of most shall hold a fretful realm in awe And raptinIt is Americas great soldier who said Though I have been trained as a soldier and have participated in maty battles there never was a time when in my opin ion some way could not have been found of preventing the drawing of the sword I look forward to an epoch when a court recognized by all nations will settle in ternational difference instead of keep ilug large standing armies as they do iin Europe Shall we not allow the words of Gen Grant to go forth as the message of America Some weeks ago the Czar of Russia said The maintenance of general peace and possible reduction of the excessive e slpleielltt I I v Ions of the whole world as an ideal to ward which the endeavors of all govern ments should be directed And in acv cordance with these views he invited all nations to send representatives to an international peace congress in which the question of reducing the armaments of the several countries of the world and otherwise preparing some plan for the prevention of wars might be discussed The Czar is moved bythe miseries ac companying war and by the distressing drain continuously made upon the wealth and the energies of people by preparation for war The militarism of Europe is a curse second only to the terror of the battlefieldIn present condition of the world whatever the immediate measure of suc cess that may attend the proposal of the Czar it is not to be expected that n per manent universal peace will be secured or a generaldisarmament effected But something may be done and that is worth contending for The proposal for a uni versal peace congress is an advance how ever small toward what must ever be for the friends of humanity for the disciples of reason and religion the ultimate goal of their holiest ambition Shall not America send to St Peters burg a message of goodwill a promise of earnest codperation America great and powerfulcan afford to speak of peace Words of peace from her will be the more gracious and timely as they who do not know her say that maddened by her re cent triumphs she is now committed beyond return to a policy of militarism and conquest The proposal was once made for the establishment of a board of arbitration to which all disputes between America and England should be referred Better if it be possible that a universal board of arbitration be established for the settlement of the quarrels of ndtions The proposal for the establishment of such a board would give no occasion for jealousy or suspicion and the ideal of humanity universal peace would plainly be the goal of effort Lead my county in peacein peace for thyself in peace for the world When war is necessary lead we pray thee in war but when peace is possible lead we pray thee yet more lead in peace lead in all that makes for peace that prepares the world for peace America the eyes of the world

hospital Therenre thirtysix in the division hospital They have the typhoid fever which they caught at Tampa for I dont think they could get it at Huntsville Ala where we are now There is Ian abundance of spring water the finest in the world and the soil is a red clay as fine as powder which permits us to dig the sinks to the depth of fourteen or fifteen feet By this means the camp is kept clean and healthful Will there be any room for men from the Ninth and Twentysecond of this city some of whom now talk about join ing the Sixtyninth in case their own regiment dont go to the West Indies the Colonel was asked- I have given discharges to about sev entyfive or eighty of my men who had families dependent upon them and their places are yet unfilled but they can be filled not by recruiting but by transfers These transfers according to a letter which I received from the Secretary of War can be made only between regiments of the same State Por instance when some Thirtysecond Michigan men wanted to join the Sixtyninth the Secretary said no because they were from another State Any men who wish to get trans ferred must do so of course before they are mustered out When do you expect to start for Cuba or Puerto Rico We do not know positively yet that weare going We have been brigaded with the Tenth Infantry in the Third Division Fourth Corps but that may mean many things The men display no aver sion togoing and areas the Sixtyninth always is when called onready to do their duty When there was some mut tering among the men during the voting in some other regiments I called them out formed them in a hollow square and told them it was the part of a soldier to wait and see what the President wished to do with them About 22J men are away on furloughs of various kinds I take advantage of the permission to grant furloughts to the full as I believe it is one of the best ways to keep off homesickness The men are fed on the best of meat and I only wish that we could buy the officers meat from the commissary instead of from the butchers for we would fare better Col Duffy is home on a furlough of ten days and tidy stay longer TOO FAT Squeezed Into a Trolley Car Seat at Bloomfield N J but Could Not Squeeze Out During ten minutes of church time last Sunday morning there was more of a crowd of churchgoers outside the First Presbyterian church of Bloomfield N J than inside The center of interest was a trolley car which stopped in front of the church while the conductor and motor man tried to get a passenger out of an unpleasant predicament The passenger was a woman of more weight breadth and thickness than any person in the town Where she came from nobody knows but she came near staying there permanentlyShe the car at the northern end of the line and she sidled care fully between an upright support and the arm of a seat and dropped back with a sigh of relief Let me off at the First Presbyterian church she directed the conductor Yesm said that official hoping that his car was built for heavy tonnage When the church was reached the con ductor rang the bell and calledout Heres your place maam Step right out Dont you hurry me young man said the passenger Im coming as quick as I can Unfortunately she backed out of the seat instead of going sidewise and con trived to wedge herself firmly between the upright and the seat arm where she struggled violently for several seconds becoming more firmly fixed at every effortConductor she criedwhy dont you come and help the out II Vcsm said the conductor What how wherell I take hold maam Take hold I Gracious sakesl Dont stand there like a ninny Pull me out some way Very gingerly the conductor seized her by the slack of the skirt and pulled Crrrack The fabric gave and the con ductor turned pink and white Now youve done it Torn my best dress Youll have to pay for that Ill sue the company Dont lay a hand ou me Ill get out myself It Again she strove and struggled until her face became purple and dreadful to see Youll have an apoplexy maam the conductor warned her Dont dolt 4 E 1 I101 I I lf ltI It 1F k I= E i Gran W Smiths Sons i i 00i00 iiMISS KATE SMITH Lady Assistant and Embalmer

our passengers aint sowell- erwe mostly carry slenderer people than youAm I going to stick here to be insulted about my size cried the passenger squirming like a stationary dansedu venire artist Chop down the post and let me out at once By this time the motorman hind come in and the crowd which had been divert ed from the church entrance gave advice freelyGet a crowbar and pry the seat loose No its easier to pry the upright over If we could get a rope around her she could be pulled out Take off that coat maam and you can get out To all of these suggestions the victim replied with disdainful sniffs An elderly and solemnlooking man approached and after carefully looking over the situa tion saidrMy advice to you maam is to take a deep breath and when the breath is ex pelled you will easily release yourself Youre an old fool said the victim conciselyThe man departed looking solemner than before As if I could take a long breath with out bursting said the passenger Then in frenzied tones I demand to be re leased Chop the car to pieces I refuse to stay here longer Take her to the barns Bill suggest ed the motorman They can get her outthereDont you dare move tliis curl I demand to be put off here But Im losing time on my schedule maam said the conductor I dont care Put me off at once I will not be dragged beyond this spot Drawing a deep breath or determina thou the conductor seized her dress in both hands There was a struggle groans and pant ings then as the champagne cork emerges from the straits of the bottle neck so emerged the passenger from her predica ment sending the conductor flying off the rear of the car while the crowd for got its Sunday decorum and cheered The woman climbed off the car and took inventorya dress torn in three places a bonnet knocked out of shape a bruised person and lacerated feelings Ill make em pay for itshe said as she hobbed away Then the crowd went into church J 1898 NOVI3MIIER ELECTION 1898 DR J w GRLVINl l iiCANDIDATn FO- RSCHOOL
