the county who were in town fo the Parnell anniversary Mr P J Law lor occupied the chair The Chairman in his opening address welcomed the representatives of Wexford to their meeting and said that it always was a noble duy for Irishmen to honor the memory of their patriot dead of all1 generations It was a duty in the highest conception of the term for all peoples to perpetuate the traditions of fidelity to country which inspired the best and noblest of their race and no nation on th face of the earth had nobler patriots to revere or grander principles to preserve ti than the Irish The present year amply showed the world that those who tried t serve Ireland unselfishly had earned and were receiving that enshrinement in the grateful recollection of the people and their principles and cause that endearment in their hearts of their race which J Is the fittest honor and most cndurin fame that any man can desirer Mr OCrowley expressed the pleasur- it afforded him to meet his exiled fellow countymen in the city of Dublin where that tenacity to national principles so characteristic of the Wexford people seemed to intensify rather than diminish Mr OGorman said that it was in such reunions as this that the national spirit found renewed hope and the patriotic iin- spiration recruited vitality It was iin- deed an extreme pleasure to see that those Wexford men whom destiny hadj cast far from their native houses were true to the traditions which made the name and fame of their county dear to the friends of Ireland and a dread to her fees Mr Thomas J Foley in an extremely well sustained address dwelt on the events of that stirring epoch which called forth the celebration of the present year and pointed out the continuityof effort for Irelands freemen which down to th

For an Imposing Memorial Laid In Mar i ket Square Memory of Irish Heroes Hon ored and Ringing Resolu ttions Adopted PLEDGED TO SUPPORT TilE LEAGUE Yesterday a magnificent demonstration in celebration of the centenary of 98t took place in the town of Sligo says a recent issue of the Dublin Freemans Journal The great display in Dublin on Wolfe Tone Day and the wonderful turnout in this country at Carrignagat four weeks ago excepted the demonstration held in Sligo was one of the largest and most remarkable mid enthusiastic that has taken place in any part of the coun try The celebration was organized by the Sligo 08 Club of which the Mayor of Sligo P A McHugh M P is the leading spirit All sections of Nationalists worked heartily together to make the celebration a success In fact it may be said that in the town and county of Sligo all traces of recent dissension have com pletely disappeared and there seems to be a desire all round that nothing should be done to recall late controversies The demonstration consisted of a procession through the streets the laying of the foundation stone of the centenary memorial and a public meeting in the Market Square The town was decorated in the most marvelous manner The greater number of the streets through which the procession passed were a regular avenue of trees Large trees were plantedalong the thoroughfares which were thronged with people Flags and banners were strewn everywhere and many of the houses were ornamented with evergreens The procession assembled at the new lineIt was headed by a large body of horse men who were headed byMrT WI Cmdt iwotSitSfitiB1 w1t vdE hisutif- orm i as a Lieutenant in the United States army Mr F Median Thomas Flana gan TC and Mr C Sweeney actedas Chief Marshals of the procession Every thing passed off hi the most orderly and satisfactory manner The procession moved by the mall coach road Pound street Old Market Square Telling street Thomas street Bridge street Stephen street Lord Edward street Wolfe Tone street John street Grattan street and back to the market cross where the foundation stone was laid and then on to Market Square where the meeting was held All along the route the streets were crowded At the front of the pro cession were the Mayor of Sligo M Pj Mr William OBrien Ail Collery M 1j Mr John ODowd and the members of the Sligo Corporation and they were received everywhere with enthusiasm Time splendid brass band of the Sligo Temperance Society headed the bands The foundation stone was laid by the Mayor of Sligo at the Market Square It is intended that the memorial shall con sist of a marble statue of Erin standing on a high pedestal on the panels of which there are to be bas relief medal lions of Wolfe Tone Lord Edward Fitz gerald and Robert Emmet the fourth be lug reserved for the inscription Under the foundation stone was deposited a hermetically sealed casket containing a copy of the resolutions to be submitted to the meeting a list of the Sligo 98 clubs the membership card a copy of the Sligo Champion containing a description off the memorial motherofpearl rosary blessed by the Bishop of the diocese and a list of the Sligo Ladies 98 Co mmilte and some 98 emblems As the proces sion passed through Pound street a child dressed in white and green Miss Ruby Ferguson played national airs on a harp at the window of one pf the houses The proceedings throughout were most sue cessful On the motion of Mr Thomas McCar rick seconded by Mr Miilrooney the Mayor of Sligo Mr P A McHugh took the chair Large contingents mounted and on foot with banners and in some instances bands attended from Bunlnaden Tuflag han Manorhamilton Cliffoney Grange Skreen Drumlease Ballintogher Calry Geevagh Sose Riverstown Killinti mery Ballymote Killargue Killoran Ballyrush Templeboy Collooney BallU sodare Carrownagh etc The Chairman in opening the proceedings said he was never more proud of the people of Sligo town and county than he was that day Never before had so magnificent a procession passed through the streets of the town One of the most hopeful features in connection with that days demonstration was the fact that they were there not to talk about unity but to show that they were united Men were there from BalI ling to Ballyshannon sail from Cliffonsy to IIallinafad arid although they had been divided in the past he should like to seethe emissary of faction that would dare to speak a word against the great prince 1 ple of the United Irishmen He would now call up Mr John J Keenan TR C n 3 2 JP to read and move the resolutions to be submitted to the meeting Mr McTernan Secretary announced that the following letter was received Having long since ceased to take part in political affairs I regard the invitation with which your

Gonne Mr N P Devine MrJOwen McCann CarrickonShannon and sevcal others Mr McCarrick proposed the following resolutions Resolved That recognizing and main taining the right of every people to civil andreligious liberty we justify adopt andadhere to the cardinal principles of the men of 1798 and when and wherever that right is denied to the efforts made for the purpose of securing it by consti tutional means it becomes not only justifiable but the duty of nil civilized and selfrespecting peoples to assert it by force of arnis- Resolved j That while we believe it to i be our duty to take our part and we do solemnly take our part in the centenary i celebrations we are convinced that i the memory of the men of 98 can only be fittingly and effectually honored by loyalty to the principles they professed j advocated and died for and as j one of the greatest and noblest of those principles was union and brotherhood among Irishmen irrespective ofcreed 1 or class we pledge ourselves to forget the differences of the past few years and henceforth strive earnestly unselfishly t and unitedly to win for Ireland the full satisfaction of her national demands i Resolved That we heartily approve of the objects and principles of the United Irish League and that we pledge ourselves to show our cordial and practical I sympathy with its promoters by establishing i forthwith branches of the League in the town of Sligo and in every i parish and district of the county of Sligo i in which branches do not already exist Resolved That while we are pre i pared to extend to all men a tolerance never extended to us by grand jurors or i exofficio guardians we consider it our imperative duty as Nationalists to resist with all our force the return to the new County Councils and District Councils of Sligo of any candidate who is not pre pared to support and advocate the right II- of the people of Ireland to make their owjfJaws on JrishsoiLiJU Mr Mulroony seconded the

of the American Ftd- cratlon t Opposes Further Annexation We Arc in Danger cal lleliifr Drawn Into a Seri ous Conflict WOULD PROTECT AMERICAN WORKERS Last week we published the magnificent oration of Archbishop Ireland at time Chi cago peace jubilee On the same occasion but at the Second Infantry armory Samuel Gompers President of the Amer lean Federation of Labor also delivered an address which has been widely com mented upon Because of his promi nence in the labor world great interest attaches to his utterances and while we do not agree with him in all things we publish his speech in full which was as followsIn the midst of our rejoicing over the success of our arms it is well that we look to the causes that brought on our war with Spain and consider the questions which have grown out of it and the attitude which we as a liberty loving peo pIe ofa great republic should take in regard to them What has become of time paeans of praise for the brave Cubans Was our charge against Spain in her refusal to give the people of that island freedom and in dependence baseless If we admit this we at once confess that ourwar was with out just cause we confess to a most griev ous wrong committed Where is the spirit of holdihg out the helping hand in aidof all people struggling for liberty and Inde pendence Where has flown this great outburst of our sympathy for the self sacrificing and libertyloving Cubans Is it not strange that now for the first time we hear that the Cubans are unfit for self government that whether they protest against it or not they must be dominated by usannexed to us or become a depend ency of ours AlaslThertlreso our moneymakers whose only God Is the almighty dollar whose only human or divine trinity is dividend interest and profit come to the conclusion that if poor suffering Cuba can be handed over to their tender mercies their Deity mid their deviltry can hold full sway These gentry when there is a question between liberty and profit present or prospective throw liberty to the dogs as a wornout and threadbare thing of the past Ifwe have intervened In behalfof Cuba and driven a foreign tyrant from her shores we have at least authority for our action by the appeals of the struggling Cubans But what of the Porto Ricans They have not asked our intervention they have not pleaded for annexation They were invaded as a military neces sity They number eight hundred thou sand people and have not been divided by fierce conflict If we give freedom and independence to Cuba to which she is entitled is there any justification for our enforced conquest and annexation of Porto Rico Hawaii we leave annexed irrespective of the wishes of the people who were not asked whether the constitution under which they have recently lived meets with their approval Nor was annexation in its direct or Indirect forum ever given to them for decision The flag of our coun try waves in Hawaii over a people sub jected by our superior force in flagrant violation of the consent of the governed In the case of the Phlllipiues we have the question repeated only in a much more aggravated forum There is even now a strife going on among the nations of the earth for the partition and possession of Eastern conn tries Let us take the Philippines and we shall be in the midst of the conflict We shall have to follow the monarchical pot icy of large standing armies with immense navies not always voluntary We shall not only have to bear the heavy bur 1dens of debt and taxation exceeding1 that of other nations but we will come to that point against which the genius of our institution revolts compulsory mili tary duty We do not oppose the development of our industry the expansion of our com merce or the power and influence which the United States may exert upon the destinies of the nations of the earth On the contrary we realize that the higher intelligence and standard of life largelyehiglmestvpinnacle of industrial and commercial greatness and these achievements in the paths of peace will glorify the institutions of our republic to which the grateful eyes and yearning hearts of the people of the earth will turn for

There may and there may not b war between England and Franc- over I the Fashoda The newspaper reports are all via English sources 1 and this coupled with the eagerness of the newspapers to cater t the popular craving for the excitin and sensational by exaggerating the truth magnifying rumors and discussing mere surmises takes the situation appear really worse tlta it iis The fact is England does not want war she never does at least singlehanded France like the other powers of Europe arnte l and prepared as they have been for years for the inevitable general war which must come sooner or later1 wants war and does not The Fa shoda question really a small issue at first has owing to the latest claims of England assumed an international importance that ma f provoke a general conflict Gener- and widespread war has resulte from smaller and less significant issuesWhen several years ago Englan- started southward from Egypt and France from the west coast cas ward to penetrate Africa establishing posts of occupation it was evident that they must meet some day and then come a crash for supremacy just as happened at Fashoda The claims of either to sovereignt- over any part of the country are equally void as a matter of right their claims are based solely on conquest the question at issue being only one of prior possession or rather in the Fashoda matter a prior notice of claim and intent to take possession France has quietly but rapidly pushed her advance beingly only heard of when surprising England by occupying some position unex pectedly Only a few months ago she occupied five posts in the neu tralzone west of the Nile Eng land protested utterly oblivious of the fact that she too was violating neutrality by establishing military posts in this same territory Her demand that France withdraw was refused Frances proposition that both withdraw their troops and each be allowed to trade in the neutral1 zone was declined by England the final result being a joint occupation 1 being unable to oust the other from neutral territory they seemI to have tacitly agreed to divide it upEngland continues her course down the Nile and France toward the Nile The English defeat the Dervishes and capture Khartoum capital of the Soudan at the junction of the Nile rivers just as the French take possession of Fashoda on the Nile several hundred miles farther south Englands demand for the withdrawal of the Frenchl was refused England based her demand on her right over the entire Soudan as part of Egypt the claim to which she had previously an nounced and in the conquest of which she is and has for years been engaged Frances reply seems to have refuted Englands first groundI by proving priority of notice and beginning of conquest of the section in dispute by several years that the Fashoda country is not within the area of the Egyptian I Soudan previously claimed by England I then enters a claim to the J right to hold a post on the banks of I the Nile and to use that stream and I its tributaries the natural water way of the continent as a highway 1 for international traffic and com 1 s coerce f 4 England in reply asserts her c claim beyond any heretofore an nounced though generally believede a t t7 1 to be her ultimate purpose to the Nile its tributaries and watershed- a A reelveals that England now claims the heart of Africa from Cairo to th Cape of Good Hope about all tin tbatoshe includes Posgactual or claimed of others besides FranceItaly Germany Portugal Holland and the iude pendent States of South African But aside from these her declaration to seize and control to the ex clusion of all other commercial ua tions the natural waterway o lAfricathe Nile its tributaries and watershed is not likely to be tol1 crated by France or any of the other nations of the world If England persists in and attempts to this claim the issue becomes of international importance not alone with France- S This advanced position of Eng alland

Grievance Mr James Sweet man contributes a trenchant article to the New Ireland Review for Oc tober In able andconvincing terms the writer sets forth the case for Ireland against the predominant nation euphemistically termedl partner in a financial arrange ment which would not be borne by any people but under the coercion of armed might alone In the initial paragraph Mr Sweetmau lays down a truth which common place and selfevident as it appears a number of Irish Unionists decline to accept He says All citizensi m are benefited by the prosperity of their fellowcitizens and hurt by their want of prosperity We can not live apart even if we wished Our lives act on the lives of ou neighbors and are acted on by their lives As an instance wages are lower in Ireland than in Eng land because in proportion to the number of laborers there are fewer men with capital to need their labor Besides this material injury from capital which we all suffer there is no stronger proof that we are a conquered country than the fact that we are paying England a tribute of some three millions a year For my part I think we should rise up from this position of slavery and that all Irishmen should unite in a joint demand that this tribute should cease The writer then proceeds to deal with the sub ject under three headsviz our grievances how to obtain their re dress what form that redress should take After dealing exhaustively with the report of the Royal Com mission the report of English ex perts whose sense of justice com pelled them to give a verdict against their own country and in favor of IrelandMr Sweetman turns to the problem How are we to obtain the redress of our grievances He quotes Mr Standish OGrady in his book All Ireland Combine Ireland and everything follows Fail to combine Ireland and in London in the Imperial Parliament and in England generally we awak n no other emotion than that of il J C lr r I KENTUCI Y IRISH A1MERICANn goodnatured contempt So says Mr OGrady and the truth of his statement has been proved repeat edly in the history of our unhappy relations with the socalled partner It is supported alike by experience and common sense As Mr Sweet man proceeds to point out we have to a great degree the remedy in our own hands England is ruled by party The Tory and the Liberal party in the House of Commons each wants to be in power They have very little in principle to di vide them They must both be democratic to gain the votes of their constituents In the long run the Irish one hundred members count ing two hundred on a division will1 find a time in which one or thee other English party will bid fore their support This is the lesson we should follow but as Mr Sweet man points out it is popular opinion which must be aroused to over come the inertia of our representa fives At once the stolid indiffer once and contempt of the English House of Commons is faced by a1 united Irish representation backed popularfopinion the just claims of Ireland can no longer be scoffed at and i norcd SCHOOL TRUSTEES eIn the selection of School Trus tees partisanship lines should be obliterated and only educated men those capable of advancing the edu

and as they are all goodlooking men they make quite a fine appearance in their new neatfitting gray uniforms The Republican officials never tire of guying their lucky Democratic friends and claim that the reason gray was adopted is because two of the commissioners and the warden and deputy war den are exConfederate soldiers Percy Haley of this city one of the bestknown young Democratic politicians in the State has formally announced himself as a candidate for the Demo cratic nomination for Representative from Franklin county in the lower branch of the next Legislature Mr Haley is the second candidate to enter the race South Trimble who represented the county at the last session having announced for reelection some time ago The chief purpose of people of Franklin county in selecting a representative to serve in the next House is to elect a man who can se cure an appropriation for State Capitol buildings This Mr Haley claims he can do with the assistance of some of the leading Democrats of the State whose influence he can bring to bear to secure such an appropriation Division No11 A O II wMl give its initial hop next Monday evening October 31 All Halloween at their new hall

was laid of a monument to the heroes of four import ant periods in Irish history 98 1803 M8 and C7 was one of the most remarkable that ever passed through the streets of Cork For the first time in recent years so full of discords and bitterness conflict and surprises we saw Nationalists who differ widely on many points of doctrine and policy united in paying a just tribute to the memory of the dead who died for Ireland says an Irish correspondent This unity was possible without a sacri fice of any of those principles for which the different sections have been contend f ing in recent years In this country there can only be one opinion of the unselfishness and heroism of the revolutionaries of the periods named and thoughwe have come somewhat tardily to honor their memory it is beini done in no nig gard manner but with earnestness en thusiasm and pride In the great demonstration on Sunday every Nationalist interest was fully repre sented The corporation and public boards the trades clubs and associations all joined in the impressive spectacle We order such demonstrations well in Cork and if there were any strangers within our gates who like Mr Joseph Chamberlain consider the Irish question dead their eyes must lave been opened as they realized that it is not dead nor sleeping but that it is a living potent actuality the problem of the hour that claims solution The conviction was also deeply borne to the mind that the num bers of our people are increasing who are losing faith in constitutional agitation It has long been triedand found wanting and at llast men are coming to recognize that the old methods are the true ones and that it is wisdom to be ready to strike when the opportunity bffers A fig for your parlor Nationalist who travels with in the law and deems it heresy fo offend They are out of date and must be put on one tide and their place taken by more progressive and daring spirits This memorial will be erected on the- o 1- IJ o 5 spot where over twenty years ago stood a statue of one of Englands dissolute whenIremoved one night by some hardy sons theIof impertinence that had been tolerated too long The monument now to take its place will endure and remind those who conIc after us of the heritage they have received from the past ofa work still uncompleted ofa mission that has passed into other hands Demonstrations like that of Sunday cheer and encourage they show that there is still much vitality in the national life of the country and though many men have gone wrong they will return to the fold and repentant will be forgiven and welcomed The bed rock is all right and only on the upper strata have there been any irregularities or impurities discovered IRISH DRAMA The Public Will Be Given a Rare Treat by Divisions Nos 4 and 6

many problems confronting us at home without attempting to divert the thoughts of our people to foreign complications of any character States manship can apply its art to the remedy of grievous ills from which our people suffer It is worse than folly aye it is a crime to lull ourselves into the fancy that we shall escape the duties which we owe to our people by becoming a nation of conquerors disregarding the lessons of nearly a century and a quarter of our national existence as an independent progressive humane and peaceloving nation We can not with safety to our selves or justice to

for five hours to a plank in the wild waves of the Atlantic will show to the world what woman can do when buoyed up by faith and confidence She was on the ship Mohcgan when it was wrecked off Cornwall Eng land at Lizard Point Over one hundred people lost their lives Miss Noble see ing the lifeboats overturned by the frantic men and women who sought to save their lives put on a life preserver and in the darkness calmly awaited her fate In a few seconds she was washedoverboard by an immense wave Seizing a plank near by she clung to it with all confidence that she would be saved and wouldagain see her mother Imagine ones self in the midst of the stormtossed Atlantic in complete darkness with scores of men andwomen who a few moments before were laughing and joking now shrieking in the agony of death and being carried down to a watery grave Yet this woman nerved by a confiding faith that she could and would be saved never lost presence of mind but determinedly clung to the plank that she found floating in the water until rescuers came and relieved her from her terrible condition Nothing more dreadful in the time of peril at sea can be imagined Even on the streets of the city or in ones own room at home to be surrounded by complete darkness is hor rible How much worse then to be in the midst of inky blackness tossed in the waters of the turbulent Atlantic What man will say that woman and weakness are synonymous If any such is to be found he ought to be relegated to the list of fossils so antiquated that history can not tell his age It is said that we never appreciate our country until we have left it for another Women certainly do not realize how blessed they are until they see or read of the manner in which women are treated in countries on the other side of the water The condition of women in the old countries makes us shiver when we see how degraded their condition of life is in some of them and the terrible labors they have to perform Right now in Vienna the capital of Austria women alone are building a palace for the impe rial family of Hapsburg They mix mor tar carrying it in immense tubs on their heads shoulder hods fitted with brick and do work that even men lucre might not do Machinery should be forced into service to save human muscle and bone Not so in this media val land of Austria women are the drudges and take the places of pack horses while soldiers and officers in liveried uniforms pass haught ily by either carelessly promenading riding in carriages What a parody on civilizationI What a burlesque on the hightoned chivalrous education of so called aristocratic men who breathe the air of courts surrounded by every luxury and who yet are willing to see the women of their land down in the substratum of slavery and degradation In England women work side by side with their hus bands and fathers in the mines down in the bowels of the earth where the glorious light of day never penetrates In other European countries they plow and labor in the fields while with us the lat ter work for women is very exceptional Nowhere in the world are women more respected or better loved than in our own country so that America is preeminently our own dear laud Right now in India owing to the unreasonable and cruel taxes imposed on the people by the English Government over 70 per cent of the population have taken to highway robbery for a living A glaring sample of Englands fairness and desire to see a weak nation prospers Ground into the earth by excessive tithes and the exorbitant interest demanded for the use of money desolated by famine and pestilence subjected by their English rulers to all sorts of hardships what won der that these poor people should take to stealing instead of working to the prac tice of murdering and slaying their ene mies rather than to the arts of peace Mans inhumanity to man has made countless thousands mourn Englands mourners are numbered by the millions And yet this alldevouring body and soul destroying monstrosity seeks to swallow all the lands of the earth not even excepting our own Is it not wonderful that any number of men could become so blinded to their own and their nations interests as to be deceived by any Seeming friendliness on the part of such a brutalizing government as Eng land Or wish to engraft her customs onto ours or endeavor to secure her false friendship for our straighsbut manly and honorable methods And yet there are cads and hypocrites and many right herein Louisville who are seeking today to ally themselves and all of us with this immense reptile that would like to cover us first with the slime of its friendship before desfroying us But the odor of the slime is apparent to the nostrils of rightthinking men and they avoid its touch as they would a miasma After many years Edgar Allen Poe is to be honored by the University Virginia where he once studied The Poe Memo real Association of the University has commissioned the New York sculptor George Julian Folnay to execute a bust of the poet Prof Kent of the Linden Kent Memorial School says that Poe was no drunkard not even an habitual drinker but was easily tempted and when yielding was easily overcome by intoxicants He struggled with more or less pertinacity against them The story of his life is not that of vice but of a pathetic struggle against it His picture then should show pathos not viciousness melancholy not despair sadness not suffering While no one will decry the habit of recognizing merit in individuals after death how much better wculd it be if we could bdtsee that merit during the life C t i 1 time of the person whom we so honor Frequently these men and women of genius have sufferedt the direst poverty during thair lives and nothing was done for them no one took an interest in them and they were allowed to eke out their miserable days and comfortless nights with no sympathetic heart to come to their assistance It is the old story again of

simply imitating mankind by erecting a fine monument over one of their brethren whom they had a short time before maliciously killed During life is the time to do all the good that we can for one another By a little thoughtfulness many comforts can be brought into the lives of those whom we suspect of having to face privations and want When Aeneas was relating his troubles and the hardships he had under gone in shipwreck to Dido she made use of that beautiful line quoted by the Latin poet Having suffered misfortunes my self I know how to pity others If once we have tested of the bitter draught our hearts can readily respond to the minor note of distress in the lives of others Let us be up and doing and tear away the crust of selfishness that will speedily cover usH we do not stop to think of those around us who may need our tender ministrations Children especially appeal to us when we see them poorly clad in cold weather In one school that I know of several of the little ones have had no shoes scan tiest of underwear and no little coat or wraps Well dressed people in the neigh borhood see these little children day after day attired in such poor garments but yet do not seem to notice the little ones If a suffering child can be thus ignored how much more likely will it be the fate of a man or woman writer or artist poet or sculptor as the case may be Father Faber says that kind words are the music of the world How much more kind deeds I And yet we are all kind but only thoughtless and careless through habit ANNIE NBVIN CUNNINGHAM LOVE MAY UNLOCK BARS Faithful Wife Comes from Ireland to Visit Sing Sing Prison Where Her Husband Suffers Thanks to Sister Mary Xavier of St Catharines Convent of the Sisters of Mercy at No 1070 Madison avenue Pierce Hennessy and his wife were re united for a short time on Thursday last On that day the good Sister took thewife to Sing Sing prison in which Pierce Hennessy is serving a ten years sentenceThe was an affecting one and the keeper turned away while the hus band and wife wept Sister Mary Xavier and a younger sister who accompanied her were the only witnesses to the reunionIt for this that the wife had come alone from Ireland She had not seen her husband since she bade him goodby at Belfast two years ago He shipped as fireman on the steamship Beacon Light and the wife waited in vain for months for the wordwhich never came Then not long ago she received a let ter from Sister Mary Xavier It broke as gently as possible the news that Pierce Hennessy was in Sing Singprison having beer found guilty of highway robbery soon after his arrival at this portThe story told by Hennessy to the Sister whose mission it is to visit the Tombs and Sing Sing prison is as fol lowsIWhile ashore one night with several men from my ship I entered a saloon in West street There met a man who invited me to drink I accepted and soon afterward we left the place Hardly had we got outside before two strange men ran up and assaulted the man with me I tried to protect him and was struck in the eye and nearly blinded A policeman appeared and the two men disappeared I told the police man the truth but he doubted my story and accused me of being implicated in the robbery The man had lost 60- hI was locked up and the robbed man was kept in the House of Detention The case was tried before Judge Cowing A lawyer was assigned to defend me but I could not raise 50 to pay him and so when the case came up I had no lawyer- I protested my innocence and asked time in which to communicate with my friends in Ireland I had been in the country only three weeks The man who was robbed was in toxicated at the time and he had told the policehe did not know who robbed him When the case came up in court the police had worked upon him so that he made a sworn statement that I robbed him I was found guilty and here I amSixter Mary Xavier believed the con victs story She wrote to his wife and the latter appealed to the highest power she knewthe church in the person of Bishop Sheehan The Bishop had known Pierce Hen nessy and knew his wife to be a good and faithful follower of the church What more natural than to write to Archbishop Corrigan asking him tosee that justice followed if injustice haS been done Archbishop Corrigan therefore wrote to Warden Sage asking him what kind of a prisoner Hennessy has been The rest was left for Sister Mary Xavier Mrs Hennessy caqie over the water to be near her husband She way over joyed when the Sister of Mercy told her she was to see him again A petition is to be presented to Goy Black asking for Hennesseys pardon countryinthehopehusband for life b c i- ant t r SPORTING Events to Take Place Before the Various Local Athletic ClubsNews of the Ring George Dixon is training at Bay Ridge for his meeting with Dave Sullivan Jack Everhardt says that he will no do any boxing for at least two months A match between George McFadden and Martin Flaherty is being talked aboutBilly Madden has received an offer to match Gus Ruhlin against James Ken nedy a California heavyweight The sporting public is taking the Haw thorne Clubs departure from the scene of fistic action in a philesophical manner Tommy Ryan the champion welter weight is out with a card sfating that he has forsaken the welters for all time to comeFrank Erne has been matched to meet Kid Lavigne again They will box twen ty rounds before a San Francisco club for the largest purse offered Mysterious Billy Smith has made up his mind to go to San Francisco His manager has received a good offer to match Smith against Young Corbett for twenty rounds According to a letter received from Mike Sears by his manager the American boxer is in fine form for his bout with Jabez White which is scheduled to be decidedat Birmingham October 20 In the preliminary between Kid St Clair and Tommy McQuaid at Music Hall Monday night the youngsters showed up fast and game and were greatly applauded McQuaid was given the decision The Kentucky Athletic Club announces the date for the return match between Jim Ryan and Jim Franey as November 11 On account of his Texas fight Ryan has been in pretty constant training and wants the contest to take place as soon as possiblePeter Maher has not started to train for leis coming contest with Kid McCoy although the affair is a little less than six weeks away McCoy is not doing any work either As no money is up the sports are inclined to think that the affair will never come off Prank Moran of New York leas received a letter from Spike Sullivan who is now at Boston Spike writes that he is prepared to meet any good light weight If he fails to catch on Spike will immediately go to England where he has received good offer to box Johnny Hughes the English lightweight cham pionThe next event in the fistie arena is that of Monday night when Tommy Hogan and Eugene Bezenah meet at Music Hall in a twentyround contest Indications are that this will be one of the best contests that has ever been pulled off in Louisville from a purely scientific standpoint It is the general opinion that Tommy Hogan is the best feather weight that ever stepped into the local ring That Bezenah is about on a par is shown by the fortyround draw that he fought with Oscar Gardner giving the Omaha Kid what he admitted to be the hardest fight of his life The twentyround contest between Jim Watts of this city and Jim Janey of Bal timore which took place at Music Hall Monday night under the auspices of the Louisville Athletic Club was decided in Watts favor in the seventh round on account of the interference of Al Herford Janeys manager who had leaped into the ring after Watts had fouled him Had the referee performed his duty there is no doubt but that Janey would have gotten the decision Watts is a hugger and bucks like a broncho never standing up asa game man should There is nothing in lies way of boxing to commend him Tom Lansing went to Wheeling Tues day to take the place of Australian Jimmy Ryan in a twentyfiveround contest with John Finnegan of Pittsburg As the contest progressed Lansing became the favorite owing to the rowdy conduct of the friends of his opponent and when the Pittsburg boy was given the decision on a foul in the fourteenth round the hissing and qatcalls continued for several mini utes Lausing knocked Finnegan twice in the first round and had him all but out but he gave a marvelous exhibi lion of gameness Lansings victory was only a question of time He came out without a scratch while his opponent bled from half a dozen cuts on his face and head Tommy Ryan of Syracuse made his bow asa middleweight at the Greater New York Athletic Club Coney Island Monday night and got a decision over Jack Bonner of Philadelphia in a twen tyround bout Bonner who knocked Dan Creedon out not long ago was out classed by Ryan who fought with superb science and generalship Bonner got one of the worst beatings that any fighter ever received at a New York club but he stayed to the limit by sheer grit and gameness He was unable to hit Ryan more than a dozen effective blows in the fight but he kept trying to land his powerful right and left banders even when he had one eye closed Bonner was groggy en several occasions but he revived wonderfully and never showed an inclination to quit under the awful pun ishment that Ryan delivered at almost every stage Toward the close the victor became merciful however and let up in his attack Bonner was badly cut and bruised while Ryan escaped without a mark Bonners exhibition of nerve will be remembered by all who saw him go down in defeat Some people may say that Ryan should lave knocked his man out early in the contest but the fact that the Philadelphian was dangerous during a majority of the rounds made it neces sary for Ryan to fight with caution Ryan says he wants to fight anybody for the middleweight championship There is some probability of Ryan being match ed to meet a firstclass man in this city It will be a big event for the club that pulls it off l ll2 fl wf fi u = 1111 r IIII By Comparing w We Are Sure to Get Your Trade If you wanted a fine Suit or Overcoat wed
