Session Last June Story of the Passage of an In teresting Bill in the United States Congress Mr Walter Evans Opposes the Granting of Equal Rights to All Citizens THAT VERY VERY YELLOW DODGER The Congressional race in this district is one in which all fairminded u prejudiced men are deeply interested Mr Walter Evans and Mr Oscar Turner are the two principal opposing nominees Mr Turner is a broad liberalminded man who is without prejudices and be lieves that all citizens should be protected in the enjoyment of the rights guaranteed them by the Constitution Mr Evans on the other hand is known by his rec ord That record is one that we would like to get fully before the people of this district but our space will not permit that We will content ourselves with an account of a very interesting bill which was under consideration in the House of Representatives June 29 Tine purpose of that bill was to authorize the Secretary of War in his discretion to permit the erection of a building for religious worship by any sect or denomination on the West Point military reservation In the course of the debate on the measure it developed that time principal objection to the passage of the bill was that time Catholic church might under its proves ions get a chance to erect a chapel there The bill provided that the erection of any such chapel by any religious denomina tion should be free of expense to the Government of the United States The billwas finally passed by a vote of 114 to 25 Mr Walter Evans of Kentucky voting against it see Congressional Rec ord Jute 20 1898 pages 7204 to 7271 The debate on the subject in the House is quite interesting We extract parts of it showing its character as follows Ir Sulz rIl m o pion no fair mimic e matt can obJect to It tied or will object to it Let me say that I stand for religious freedom in its broadest sense and I know the passage of this bill ia absolutely necessary in order that a great many people at time West Point military reservation may en joy the right to worship God according to the dictates of their own consciences For one sir I make bold to say that I do not believe there is a man in this house who is so illiberal so bigotedand so narrowminded that he is not willing to give his fellowmen the same religious rights he enjoysthat is the right to worship God in his own way and accord ing to his own heart If there be such a man he ought to hang his head in shame lie is not in touch with the liberal spirit of hiage A member Was it Walter Evans Is not this bill intended to give the Catholic church a chapel at West Point Mr Sulzer Oh no the bill provides that any church can build a chapel at West Point if the Secretary of War gives his consent We know that at West Point are many officers a great many cadets a great many soldiers who live there and who must live there who belong to the Catholic church and who demand the right to worship God accord Jug to the rites of that church I have only pity for the bigot in these closing years of the nineteenth century who would deny them that right Mr PowersDo other denominations have chapels in this reservation Mr Sulzer There is a Protestant church there nowa Government church Mr Cannon I merely want to ask a question so as to understand the facts There is a Government chapel on the West Point reservation Mr BelknapYes Mr Cannon And is occupied by a Protestant chaplain Mr BelknapYes Mr CannonPaid from the Govern ment treasury Mr BelknapYes Mr EvansHow large a town is West pointMr HullIt is only a military school Mr EvansAre there not other churches there that they can go to Mr EvansIf there are other churches there that is enough Mr Evans was cne of the twentyfive members who voted against the bill and the gentleman who manifested such a narrow religious bigotry a spirit so op posed to the Constitution of the United StatesIs a candidate for reelection and asking fairminded men and members of that religious denomination toward which he displayed that narrow spirit to vote for him Is he a fit man to represent American citizens and to be entrusted with the important affairs of the office to which he aspires One of the most contemptible tricks of a hopeless cause was that perpetrated the put week by some narrowminded rank- in mailing to out citizen ayellow very t yellow dodger calculated to create bad feeling between the masses of the people andmislead a few into voting for the Republican nominee The Kentucky Irish American inter viewed many persons who had received or been shown the circular and all said it would fail of its purpose and result in renewedeffort to bring out every voter whom it was intended to mislead Others of like nature without signa ture or authority may be looked for and I we would suggest that they pay no atten I tion to them The author or authors of the above reprehensible act have no con ception of honorable politics They are unworthy of further notice FATHER MATURIN The FormerEplscopaJClergyman Catholic Order Information received in private letters from England is to the effect that the Rev Father B W Malurin formerly a priest in the Episcopal churchwell known in New York City and Philadelphia is about to enter the Roman Catholic Order of the Oratory a community whose houses are looted at Birmingham and Brompton England The Rev Mr Maturin will be the first clergyman con nected with the American Episcopal church to become an Oratorian For a number of years the Rev Father Maturin occupied a prominent place on this side of the Atlantic He was born in Ireland the sot of an able Irish cler gyman and joined the order of the Cow ley Fathers missionary priests of the Anglican church at Cowley England When a branch of the order was founded in this country under the name of the Society of Mission Priests of St John the Evangelist with headquarters in Boston Father Maturin was sent to America lie remained with the other members of the community in Boston until the so ciety secured control of St Clements church Philadelphia when he became rector of that parish He was recognized as a powerful preacher and a theologian of remarkable attainments lie left the United States after a time and returned to the community house at Cowley and about two years ago joined the Roman Catholic faith a move which he had threatened to make on many occasions while here The congregation of the Oratory was founded by Philip Neri who was after ward canonized in the middle of the sixteenth century In 1817 Cardinal John nNeWII11111 p tniWlihet1 lQI1 alion of the order at BlrmTiigliam and two years later another congregation was es tablished in London by the Rev Dr Frederick W Faber which was subse quently settled at Brompton Each com munity is wholly independent of the other and neither has any substantial re lation with the houses on the Continent ofEuropeIt principal of the founder of the order that there should be perfect equality among its members even the superior taking his turn in serving at the table The members are not monks and do not renounce their private fortunes Their functions are limited to prayer the administration of the holy sacrament and preaching In Cardinal Newmans time the membership was composed mostly of priests who had formerly been in the church of England and that complexion is largely retained up to the present It is understood that Mr Maturin will unite with the community at Brompton pp ALLIED UNIONS ELECT OFFICERS The Regular Meetings Will Be Held on the Second Sunday ol Each Month At a meeting of the Allied Printing Trades Council held at Becks Hall last Sunday afternoon C E Shepardwas elected President W II Woodman Vice President J F Middendorf Secretary J G Kestler Treasurer and J W Craig SergeantatArms These officers are to serve for the term of one year Each one of the organizations composing the council was represented by three delegates one of the most prominent of whom was Alderman Humphrey Knecht of the German Typographical UnionThe work of the council will consist of irdvtmciug the interests of all those en gaged in the printing business and par ticularly those of the employers of mem bers of the union The Committee on Bylaws and Consti tution will have a full and final report to be submitted at the next regular meeting at which time a Board of Control consisting of one representative from each subordinate body will be selected The regular monthly meetings will be held hereafter on the second Sunday of each month in Becks Hall CONCESSIONS TO LIMERICK On Wednesday Messrs J L Wilkin son general manager of the Great West ern Company Englind R G Colhoun traffic manager of the Great Southern Western railway and F Vaughan traffic manager of the Waterford Lim erick line arrived in Limerick and had interviews with some of the leading mer chants who have taken up an attitude in opposition to the amalgamation Mr Wilkinson and Mr Calhoun on behalf of their companies offered many con cessions to Limerick in the way of traffic and otherwise if opposition were withdrawn but the merchants were not to be drawn and decided unflinchingly against all monopoly Thsended the inter views without any practical result In all probability the issue will now be left to Parliament r j METEORS Two Thousand Miles of Them to Shower the Heavens Dur ing November Watch for the Most Dazzling Display of Fireworks in the Sky Since 18WJ The Coming Two Vnst Showers of Falling Stars Only Two Weeks Apart AIR PROTETS US FROM METEORS Two great meteor showers in a single month and only two weeks apart consti tute a rare event in astronomical annals Such an event is due to occur in November says Garrett P Serviss One of the expected showers will result from the first onrush of the advanc ing columns of the great Leonid meteors which envelop the earth in fiery spectacles once in every thirtythree and a quarter years or three times in a century The main mass of these meteors is due in November 1899 but since their array extends over a length of at least two thousand million miles they require not less than three years to pass the place where their orbit intersects that of the earthAccordingly astronomers are confident thattheir leading files will be streaming in hundreds of thousands across the point of intersection when our globe ar rives there about November 13 this year The tocsin of science has been sounded starmaps and directions to observers have been scattered broadcast the latest improvements in photography have been enlisted in the service and the astronomi cal world is on the qui vivo for the ex pectedencounter The other great shower occurs on the night of November 27 and will be caused by the meeting of the earth with the meteors known as the Andromedes or Bielids which are closely related to the famous missing comet of Bids if they are not in fact scattered debris of that comet itself These meteors were last seen in a great shower in 1885 when a huge ball of blazing iron dropped out 15 itlf kyVtltt lttGtfs ntl avttlrtln tr dazzling trains and buried itself in the earth near Mazapil in Mexico The meteor or piece of a smashed comet is now III a minerologicnl museum in Eu rope and the man who finds another like it after the shower next month will possess a treasure for which the scientific world will envy hint The average person who goes out on the nights of November 13 and 14 and again on November 27 and looks serenely upat the sky with its flying sparksif he is fortunate enough to see themwill have no idea in how simple a manner he is protected from a great danger If he did have the idea an element of fear and dread might tend to upset his equanimity Only the transparent air protects us against death from meteors What the effect of a small meteor striking a human body with undiminished velocity would be we can only guess A Mauser bullet traveling say 2000 feet in a second when it enters the brain cavity or any of the watercharged tissues of the body pro duces explosive effects that make even army surgeons recoil aghast But a meteors velocity at the instant it strikes the atmosphere is from 50000 to 250000 feet per second Would it blow a man to pieces as if a can of nitrogly- cerine had been exploded against his breast Or would it incinerate him like a stroke of lightning even as it is itself incinerated by the more than furnace heat of its rush through the air However we may answer these questions there re mains plentiful food for thought in the spectacle of thousands of such missiles burning themselves into harmless puffs of gas a few miles above our heads And what makes the whole question more interesting occasionally the shield of the atniospere proves insufficient and the earths armor is penetrated by a meteor of more than ordinary size and density This is what happened at Maz apil during the shower of the Andromedes in 1885 and it may happen again next mouthThe Mazapil meteor composed mostly of iron buried itself two or three feet in thehan1soil and was dug out yet glow ing with heat by persons who had seen it fall If a similar meteor should fall in New York city notwithstanding the loss of velocity it would suffer in passing through a hundred miles or so of air it would penetrate the stoutest roof or wall and if as large as some others that have been known to reach the earth it would demolish a twentystory building more effectively than a whole broadside of thirteeninch shells could do it The adventures of the two great troops of meteors which are now rushing rapidly toward the earth have been va ried and startling and the future may have still more remarkable things in store for them and for us The Leonids thus called because they appear to radiate from the constellation Leo bold like the Andromedes close relation with a comet which is traveling in the same track Every time they meet the earth they suf fer violent perturbations Beside the millions which are consumed with fire in the air other millions arid billions are whirled into new paths and tt drawn out intostreams like eddying leaves in a storm Although the general orbit of time meteors is not changed yet after each encounter with the earth their com panics and columns are broken and reformed gaps are created and the entire mass is drawn out into a more extended array Because of these changes it is quite impossible to predict the precise point in the meteoric formation which the earth will strike when it meets the streamIn a particularly dense mass en countered the globe and the result was tI spectacle that carried terror broadcast over the world the greatest excitement being produced on the plantations of bur Southern States where the uegro slaves believed that the end of the worldwas upon them while their white masters could not give them the assurance that their fears were noli well founded All accounts agree that the universal amaze ment on the 13th of November 1833 was such as the world has very rarely experienced III I860 when theearth next encoun tered the Leonid meteors the display was magnificent but not Iso overwhelming as in 1833 Brilliant showers were seen in the years immediately preceding and following 18G6 and this fact is a principal reason for expectingii display this year Whether we shall jI encounter a com pact column of the meteors or a compar atively scattered mass no one can fortell but that many will be seen may be re garded as a certainty Even the precise time when the mosf brilliant spectacle will be presented is not known The Harvard College observatory advises watchers to begin their vigil Out 1 1 oclock on the evening of November 11 and keep it up until the stars fade in the morning twi light on November 15 Time constellation Leo from which time meteors appear to emanate rises about 1030 oclock so that all the meteors seen before midnight willtippear shooting up like skyrockets fruit the northeastern horizon Later on the radiant point ap proaches the midheaven in the early morning hours and the tracks of the meteors when traced backward willappear to meet like the ribs of a gigantic um brella spread over the earth One circumstance will be especially favorable for a brilliant display the moon being new will not interfere with its light j The meteors the eastward and the earth cOll3from toward that quarter so that with which they enter the atmosphere will be nearly a maximum It is as if two trains mov ing in opposite directions should meet one the earth traveling eighteen tunes inn second and titer titer the meteors laweuty sixsuilmgfq MdIr wu = The moon too will be involved in the shower Being without any appreciable atmosphere its surface will have no pro tection against the hail of meteors and time spectacle of their striking if we could witness it near by would probably as tonish us beyond measure No doubt a large meteor when it hits the moon is not only itself dissipated but produces a pocket of molten rock where it strikes In fact the innumerable pockmarks that cover the moons surface may be due to the impact of meteors and they show us what the experience of the earth would be but for its atmospheric protection The past history of the Leonid meteors possibly predicts their future Until the beiieve space Then they encountered the planet Uranus and were diverted into a closer orbit around the sun intersecting that of the earth What happened to Uranus when they met we shall never know although the fact that Uranus still serenely pursues its distant orbit indicates that that planet was not the chief sufferer from the encounter Perhaps before the meeting with Uranus the meteors formed a comet as the Andromeda meteors did before 1872 What the ultimate effect of their repeated encounters with the earth will be is hardly problematical Every time theyare more widely scattered But we can not be certain that we have yet met the densest mass of them that crosses our orbit and the possibility ex ists that they may terrify the world again more effectually than they have ever done before The best advice of the astronomer is to keep an eye on them The Andromeda meteorsdue on November 27 have had even a more remarkable career than that of the Leonids although their history is comparatively brief They were never seen before 1872 although previous to that time a wellknown comet traveled in their track Something wonderful happened to that comet fifty years ago Just what it was nobody knows possibly a clash with an asteroidbut after the accident whatever it may have been the unfortunate comet was found to have been broken in two It survived the separation although its parts hadbeen flung hundreds of thousands of miles asunder and continuing along its former orbit came back as a double comet in 1859 But when it was next due in 1872 in stead of the twin comets a dash of meteors appeared in the sky indicating that the comets had met with another dis aster and that the earth had encountered a portion of their shattered remnants In 1885 the meteors appeared again and in the midst of their display as I have already told an iron mass fell from the sky in Mexico Now in 1898 they are due once more and what surprises they have in store for us nobody can tell No astronomer can doubt that they will arrive on time but whether few or many remains to be seen On this occasion the moon will not be so obliging as she is when the Leonids are due The moon will be fullon the night of the 27th and will iloocT the heavens I CONTINU DON THIRD FAQS t k Y JOHN DILLON Prepared to Go Into a Confer epee With the Uedinond ate Party Time True Policy In to Endeavor to Build up Again a Union of All Forces So Far as the People of Ireland Are Concerned They Are All for Union ENGLISH PLEDGES ARE WORTHLESS Mr John Dillon M P was entertained Glasgowinlin Weekly Freeman says the reception accorded to Mr Dillon was of the most Sundaydenmonstrations Glasgow for years and the Nationalists of that city subscribed 2000 in aid of the Parliamentary fund At the banquet Mr John Ferguson presided In response to the toast Our Guest preparedbyP said in part On behalf of the party with which I am identified and on my own behalf I thankOU wayinnight I feel called upon and moved to say a special word of thanks to the pro poser of the toast Father Ambrose as the representative of an order endeared to Irish Catholics in a hundred ways as sociated from the day of its foundation to the cause of the poor and the people and to which I am personally bound as Father Ambrose knows by the closest ticsIn these days it is indeed a pleasure to see a body of men representative fully representative of one of the greatest centers of Irish nationality in the world unanimous and hearty in expressing thanks to the Irish National party Now I claim to be one of those who throughout the days of stress and storm of the last eight years have remained faithful according to our humble judgment and abilities to time old principles of the Par nellitepartras it existed befpre 1890 i1ifcrr sangu tie hmattlhe sighs are multiplying every day that our reward is at hand today so far as the people of Ire land are concerned they are nil for union that the desire of their hearts is for union Now what are the obstacles to union As far as I know there are only two ob stacles One is time difference which still exists among the Irish representatives upbyspeakinginfore I had better be civil but I must say that although a public man I recognize to the fullest extent the enormous ben efits conferred on mankind by the news paper press I do think the newspapers sometimes aggravate and protract quar rels because quarrels you see give good copy and ifa country is pulling all together there is a dearth of interesting intelligence and one of the elements which has tended to keep up time semb lance of faction and division in Ireland and it is now no more than a semblance is the contentious attitude of certain journals whose names I wont mention Now I ask what is to be done You will all remember a proposition which was made at the convention held in Bir mingham this year on the suggestion of Glasgow with a view of bringing the Parliamentary representatives of the people together and what occurred in consequences of that suggestion We are asked sometimes for practical proposals My practical proposal for bringing about union among the Irish representatives a union recollect which the people are eager for and demand is that a confer ence should be held of any number of representative men say five or ten on each side five to begin withnominated by Mr Redmond and five by myselfand nobody to be bound by the result of that conference but let us get together in a room and see whether we can not draw up a scheme by which our differences can be adjusted If such a representative conference can agree upon a scheme that scheme would bind nobody until it was submitted on either side to the lead ing men of the country My conviction is so strong that there is no real substan tial or serious differences between us that I am convinced that if once we got together round a taljle whether it be square or round we would emerge from the room very goal friends and work together for the good of the country Now I desire to say a word or two on some recent controversies which have taken place as to our position towards English parties because there are some men in Ireland who claim that the only cause of difference between us and the Parnellite party is that we are too closely LibIcountry though a curious thing that the Liberal party has repeatedly attacked me for not beingr sufficiently closely attached to them but I you can not please everybody Now my reply to that objection is that I am pre I pared to go into a conference with the Parnellite party on the basis of absolute independence of nil English parties and that the ihies on which I seek on which I hope for reunion among the National F Y representatives of the Irish people are the lines of the old Parnellitc party as it ex questioncalls himself a Parnellite in Ireland to dayis he content or is he not to go back to the precise lines of the old Par nellite party before 1890 What more polIcyI fail to see where the difference comes in between us I take it as a great advance in Irish politics that the leaders on either side can now reason out the mztter inI sober and rational language I Last year Mr Redmond made nn ap peal to me in a speech which he delivered in Waterford from which I gathered that if the answer were in the affirmative he negotiations peal to me and he said it was my duty as the leader of the largest section of the Irish Nationalist representatives to go to the leaders of the Liberal party andask them for pledges that they still main tained the same position regrrding home rule as they did under Mr Gladstones leadership Well the first question I ask is who are the leaders of the Liberal party and who will be the leaders of the Liberal party after the next general elec tion He will be an exceedingly clever man who will tell me that I dont know The next objection that I have to the pro posal of Mr Redmond is that I never heard ofa responsible politician who sought tj base his policy on the pledes of the leaders ofa party in opposition be cause you never can tell what will become of a party in opposition when it cones into power and the man or men who gave you pledges in opposition may find when they come into power that they are entirely unable to redeem time pledges either from the opposition of colleagues or from the fact that they have not been called to the leadership which they ex pected to possess- Furthermore I decline to make any at tempt to extract pledges from the lead ers if we could find them of the Liberal party that they will remain faithful to the policy to which they are already pledged over andover again because I decline to base the future of the Irish cause on the pledges of any English Ministers I think it would be deceiving the people of Ireland ifwe were to ask for these pledges now for I have told the people of Ireland over and over again that their only chance of obtaining home rule lies not in the pledges of English Ministers and still less in the pledges of leaders ofa party in opposition but in the fact of their own solidarity and that their vote is a commodity worth having I say therefore in reply to Mr Redmond thattlmeruept1orus topursueisto devote our attention not to the eddies and turns of English politics but to the building up again a united party in Ire land which will plant upon the floor of the House of Commons eightytwo Irish members who will support any party in England that will faithfully honorably and loyally carry our that policy WILLIAM J MCARTHY Elected President the Y M D of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Young Mens

the Present Policy of the Itcpuhlican Leaders Y Declares That We Should Con tinue in Our Own Path and Not Follow England TIlE SOUND ADVICE OF A STATESMAN during bility of annexing Porto Rico and the Philippines but none should be read with more careful attention than those of Senator Hoar of Massachusetts The venerable statesman has had a long expe rience in national competentthe proposed policy of the Washington authorities At a political meeting this week he intimated that the present policy would lead to trouble in the Senate From the press dispatches we extract the following portion of his address This year has been crowded with his tory and crowdedwith glory It is also to my mind crowded with danger The flag of Spain formerly the proudest power on earth since the day of the Roman Empire has gone down in dark ness and in blood before the victorious navy and army of the United States The flag of the United States has arisen in the eastern sky like a new constellation Let us not accept the duties and respon sibilities of this victory in any temper of vulgar vainglory still less of vulgar greed of power or of gain The United States conies to these oppressed people East and West as n great deliverer To deal with this great commission by talking about coaling stations and trade advan tages degrades and belittles it We have l periledmay add to our possessions or that we may make money out of our new rela tions But yet the first duty of the Amer ican people is to themselves mid when I say tads say itjln no spirit of selfishness or ofindifference to time welfare of man kindOn the contrary I believe that the highest service the American people can render to mankind mid to liberty is to preserve unstained and unchanged the republic as it came to us from the fathers bybayonetsfor humanity is to be accomplished And greatdangeraencountered since the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth The danger is that we are to be transformed from a republic founded on the Declaration of Independence guided by the counsels of Washington empirefoundedI for one am not dazzled by the example of England The institutions of England which have enabled her to govern successfully distant

following in hers IIIt is said that Porto Rico is already ours It may be that Porto Rico is to become ours But there is no authority under the Constitution of the United States to acquire army foreign

of the Ha waiian Islands we get them by compact made with their lawful Government Some of our good friends have said thoughtlessly in their zeal that where the American flag goes it must stay But surely they do not wish to commit the country to that doctrine We planted it on the City of Mexico But no man demanded that it should stay there If the war goes on we shall plant it on the coast of

that has ceased to be a crime in Kentucky The people have learned that young men with their progressive ideas and abound ing energy are often the best of public servants In all things that go to make a useful representative in Congress Mr Turner is eminent ly qualified A long residence in Washington has given him the ex perience that the average new mem ber only gets after years of service and he will take his seat equipped for the discharge of his duties as Congressman in a manner most satisfactory to his constituency He is remarkable for his sound judgment and practical sense as well as for unusual talents He stands high as a member of the bar of Louisville and his talents as a man of business have received the encomiums of the most eminent authorities As a private citizen no words but those of praise can be spoken of him A kinder son and truer brother never lived In his views on public questions he has ever been on the side of the cause of the people and has made many sacrifices to aid that cause His love of his country and his country men is inspired by the purest pat riotism No man feels greater sympathy for the poor and op pressed and none performs more real works of charity in the way taught by our Savior when he said Let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth The peo ple of this district will never regret sending him to Congress 1 A vote for Oscar Turner is a

tribute in North Shields to the good clone by the ac tion of the Independent party in t Parliament at the commencement of last session on the question oftt home rule says the editor of the Dublin Independent in a recent t issue That action has had the ef fect on him at least of proving that that question is still a reality and I that there are at all events some Irish Nationalists who are not co erced by Liberal influences into minimising the Irish national de i mand Sir Michael HicksBeach observed that though the Liberal leaders last session refused to prom ise the sort of home rule which Mr Redmond and his colleagues demanded they would assuredly change their tactics if they everii found themselves again in the same position as that in which they stood in January 1886 He is of course perfectly right The question is however whether they may not be anticipated by Sir Michael Hicks Beach and colleagues That gen tleman was a colleague of Lord Salisbury in 1885 when the latter with his tacit approval suggested the AustroHungarian plan of solving the Irish questiona plan which would actually give Ireland even a greater degree of power than would be involved in the con cession of a Parliament independent in Irish affairs such as the Inde pendent party have proposed and as Parnell demanded and no one knows better than he that what has happened once may happen again The latest proof of this fact is the local government act every pro posal in which had been rejected a hundred times by the whole Union ist party but which last year nevertheless seemed to that same party the height of statesmanship Everything depends on circum stancesincluding the course of action of English politicians and placehunters whether they be Liberals or Tories- IRELANDS LORD LIEUTENANT Lord Cadogan we are afraid will get a wigging when he returns to Dublin Castle and the Viceregal Lodge He was altogether too can did in Belfast says a writer in de scribing his visit to that city Not only did he beard the Orange lion in his den but he had a sly thrust at the Castle itself I like to speak honestly said he when I can We had had we confess a dim sus picion that the Castle was a place where truth was kept at arm length and common honesty dis couraged but until Lord Cadogan told us we had not realized how in discriminately and impartially waits s embargo laid Now we begin at last to see how even a salary of 100000 a year and the dignity of the Queens representative are but a poor recompense for compulsory abstinence from freedom of speech and indulgence in the luxury off truthtelling When even a Lord Lieutenant must go over a hundred miles away from the seat and cen ter of English power in Ireland be fore he can dare to say what he thinks we can readily excuse any one who prevaricates or equivocatesi within the Castle sphere of influence Some one has said tha if an angel were installed in powe- on Cork Hill he would soon be cor rupted This was an extreme way of putting it but Lord Cadogan ha put the sane idea in other words I We congratulate him while we sympathize with him and liope that no harm will befall him when t r 4 he gets once again among the Castle entourage THE COLORED BROTHER The Republicans have been prais ing the voting ability of the negro for thirty years says the St Louis Republic The black American has shown the world again that he will fight and die for the flag The col ored troops fought nobly So far good But the moment the negro citizens political hopes rise above a janitorship the Republican bosses cry Down with the ingrate It is for this reason that the negro is in revolt against his sometime polit ical masters In verification of the foregoing we need only refer to the columns of the Commercial of this I I city which paper under its Ohio management has striven harder to I create prejudice against theI negro than any daily paper that we know I of When the Democrats undertake I to assist and better the condition ofII the colored man that paper I an awful howl THE PRINTERS LABEL The success attained in introducing the printing trades label says I the Typographical Journal is truly remarkable when the money ex pended for that purpose and the opposition met with in certain quar ters is considered It seems to I thrive on abuse and denunciation and the demand is constantly increasing notwithstanding the ef forts of unfair employers to con vince their customers that it is an instrument of oppression and spec ially designed to drive them out of business The label stands for fair wages and conditions and can be obtained by any employing printer who is willing to recognize that his employes are entitled to just con sideration There are several pub lications in this city that we should like to see using the label in their columns TRADE AND THE FLAG Colonial expansion is a tempting phrase but most of the recent ex periments in that line have had very disappointing results says the Bos ton Herald They have entailed great waste of blood and treasure without any prospect of a commensurate return in the future Our own annexation policy will be no exception to the rule of loss This policy even if it rest without fur ther extension already bears very bitter fruit in the addition of 200 000000 to our national debt and 150000000 a year to our national taxes There is not the slightest probability that the profit to be ob tained in trading with the countries we have opened to our flag in the Antilles and the Philippines will recoup us for one quarter of the losses we have sustained Mr Dillon at a banquet given to him in Glasgow recently said he was willing that a conference should be held of any representative men say five or ten but to begin with five nominated by Mr Redmond and five by himself and nobody to be bound by the result of the saidcon ference but let them meet and draw up a scheme by which their differ Thatsscheme would be submitted to the leading Irishmen in the country at a convention True friends of our public school system should keep in mind the important fact that Dr John W Galvin possesses a highgrade edu cation and good judgment The educational interests of the children of all classes may be safely placed in his hands If Hon Oscar Turner is elected to Congress the people may feel certain that they will have a repre sentative in Washington who will give

it has just leaked out here that Col P P Johnston who was of late thought to be completely out of the race is negotiating with the publishers of the Argonaut the only Demo cratic daily in Central Kentucky with a view of buying the plant This looks significant and those supposed to know say that Col Johnston will shortly shy his castor into the ring again and his candidacy announced and

1 1CONTINunD PROM FIRST PAGE with her light so that faint meteors will be lost in the glare Instead of running to meet the An drpmeda meteors as it does with the Leo nids the earth will move away from them and it is only in consequence of their greater velocity that they can overtake it The result is that their movements in the atmosphere will seem to those who have watched the swiftly flying Leonids to be very slow In fact the difference in the appearance of the two acts of invaders from space will he very striking They are as different in looks as Spaniards and ChinamenThe are very swift their prevailing L colors are blue and green and they leave behind them trails of vivid brightness like scrawls written on the black sky with phosphorescent ink The Andromedes on the other hand move deliberately do not leave long trains and when they exhibit color show red as their favorite hue As to peril from meteors it shonld be said that the most dangerous kind appar ently do not belong to any wellknown swarm but travel independently through space and strike unannounced into the atmosphere Such meteors frequently reach the ground and people have on rare occasions been killed by them But among the hundreds of thousands of meteors that filled the sky as thick as snowflakes in 1833 I860 1872 and 1885 only one the Mazapil iron was seen to strike the earth and there is doubt whether that one belonged to the swarm or came along independently of it In another way however these meteors may bring peril Having once entered the atmosphere and been burned the substances that composed them can not escape again In the form of gases and microscopic dust they continue to float in the air and finally descend to the ground and the surface of the sea In the Arctic regions meteoric dust has sometimes been found sprinkled on the white expanses of virgin snow Deepsea soundings have shown that the ooze of the ocearis bottom contains great quantities ofsimilar matter that has sunk down from the heighs of the atmosphere where the J tt- f meteors perish as in a furnace of fire victims of the friction excited by the ex cessive swiftness of their motion The gases formed by the combustion of meteors must go somewhere and enter into combination with something Perhaps the grass and the trees absord them perhaps they help to nourish instead of injure animal life In fact it has been suggested that the supply of oxygen in the air may be replehished from this source and that without meteors the atmosphere would become inert meph itic and unfit to support living beings On the other handsome of the new gases recently discovered to be constitu ents of the air and the influence ofwhich on human life whether favorable or un favorable is still problematical may have been derived from meteors At least two of these gases are known to be abundant in the sun and stars although so rare upon the earth During this month an extraordinary quantity of matter coming front outer space and more or less mysterious in its nature will certainly be introduced by the meteors into our atmosphere It will float in invisible clouds above our heads and then will gradually sink to our level and be inspired in infinitesimal quantities with every breath we draw Will it do us good or harm Is there another meteoric element in us besides that which is signified by the briefness of our lives Some time science may answer these questionsMACKIN COUNCIL Will Turn Out Two Hundred Strong to Greet the Legion The last meeting of Mackin Council was a record breaker in point of attend ance and business

BISHOPS RING Its Beautiful Significance and the Reason Wby One Is Worn The bishop is theonly Catholic clergy man who wears a ring Its significance is very beautiful The ring is the pledge of faith with which Christ wedded the church his spouse As the young man puts a ring on the finger of his spouse so the bishop receives a ring at his consecra tion to show that he is wedded to the church his diocese and he wears it as a pledge of his faith toward that church that he may love it like himself When the prelate places the ring on his finger he says the following prayer Beautify the fingers of my body and soul 0 Lord and surround me with the sevenfold holiness of the spirit In olden times letters were always sealed with a ring and their genuineness was known by the bishops seal Such was the origin of the episcopal ring and of the large stone set in it There is an indul gence of forty days for kissing the ring of the bishop STUDY IN ROME FOR THE CHURCH Mr Turner a Recent Convert Prepares

divisions of the Ancient Order of Hibernian of Boston are about to form classes for the study of Gaelic We sincerely trust that this is true and that their example will be followed by divisions of the same patriotic order in other places There is hardly a division that does not contain some Gaelic speakers their gen uine interest in time tongue is amply attested to by the Gaelic chair in the Catholic University of America Tile formation of classes will not impose any additional burden on them their organ ization being already perfected and meet ing places arranged so that we are sure it will only need some county or State divisions to set the ball arolling to have the movement become general Certain it is apart from their founding of the Gaelic chair at Washington that it would be
