laid in the historic Bull Ringof the town by Rev Father Kavanaugh the j historian of the memorable year In of preparing the site for this foundation tone the workmen unearthed a fragment of Wexfords old market cross round which men women and children of Wexh of ford side by side with their priests were butchered by the troops of Cromwell in October 1649 Great as was the demon stration held in Wexford town on the eve of the Vinegar Hill massed meeting earlier in the year the days popular disf playof adherence to the principles of i the 1798 men outnumbered it over and over and over again

Association read an ad dress to Father Kavanaugh who responded I FATHER KAVAHAUGHS RBPIY Fellow townsmen we have no hero today to honor the patriotism of our ancestors the men of 1798 by laying the foundation stone of a memorial to be erected to their memory and moreover to declare by our presence our firm de termination to adhere to the great cause for which they fought and diedthe cause of civil and religious liberty We j inherit their principles tbeir love of liberty and their hatred of oppression We have the same love the same desire for National independence which they hadt and we have not forgotten in this year of 1898 what they suffered to gain it a century ago We maintain as they would have maintained that Ireland should be ruled by Irishmen not by foreigners ands that it is not bad government alone that j we protest against but foreign governIjI ment in any shape Nor do we forget that these heroes who sprang from our soil which has been consecrated to freedom I by their blood fought and died for the freedom of their altars as well as for j that of their homes nor that they were jf Christian men who feared and honored God if they did not fear the foreign ty rant We fellowcountrymen are gathere- together I amidst the scenes which were mute witnesses of their triumphs and of their defeatsthose defeats which were no less honorable than their victories because they bore these reverses of for t tune with a fortitude no less admirable I A than their brayery The men whose I memory we honor today died for a persecuted I creed as well as for an oppressed 1 country and therefore their memory iis t doubly hallowed and religious faith as well as civic virtue sanctions the hono we pay them That faith for which theyII died is as dear to us as it was to themtt and if we esteem patriotism as a greatII natural virtue we esteem even more that religious spirit which consecrates it an raises it to a higher level which links i with mans eternal destinies If these men did not win freedom they deserved it They did all that the bravest menI could dolhey gave their lives for theirI country Fortune did not smile upon their heroic efforts but their blood was not poured forth in vain It made the earth which drank it ever sacred to free dom with their expiring breath they kindled the embers of a fire which burns stillThe descendants of these men ca surely never sink to the abject condition of contented slaves They died bu their memory lives A century of year- has not effaced it from the minds o their countrymen It cheers their spirit sustains their hope and strengthens their derermination to win freedom by every effort every sacrifice that men II should make for so great so noble a boon The honor paid to their memory la This century year of 1898 was not confined to Wexford or to Ireland iI- ttlpaidin every land in which our rac- Y e r had found a name it was as universalas j was enthusiastic Yes though freedom J may for a time be stricken down and tramped upon in the persons of its upholders we believe that though defeated it does not perish but being im A ortal like the soul which cherishes it will in time rise in triumph victorious over its enemies Truth like the sun in the heavens may be obscured for a time I must express the gratification I feel arising from the fact that the bold and honest the faithful and steadfast men of Wexford have not ignored their religion or slighted ministers while celebrating the memory of their historic ancestors They ave clearly shown that their nationalS aspirations have not weakened their de to the faith of their fathers The men whose memory we honor today rose dark and evil days these days have passed away and much of their dark ness with them but the memory of these men remains cherished and honored by Irishmen but in a special manner by Wexfordmen in whose hearts the fire of independence they kindled by their example still burns with a bright and steady flame which time will I trust never extinguish When this memorial whose first stone has been laid today is completed it will be looked upon with reverence as anjust and grateful tribute paid by the men Wexford to the patriotism of these noble ancestors who gave their lives tor win their countrys freedom In after years when our couutry has resumed her- mplace among the free nations the world the freemen of the future gazing on this monument may say This was a tribute the men of 1898 paid to their and our ancestors who faced fearful odds and fell fighting bravely the glorious cause of civil and relig ious freedom The men of 1898 did well in andwisely in raising this monument to virtue and valor to the memory of the martyrs of religion and patriotism In future and more prosperous times greater wealth may enable our people to erect stately and more costly memorial monu ments to departed worth but none of however imposing their architect will appeal to memories more touch ng more cherished and more honored than those which were designed to per petuate the fame of the devoted patriots our race who fell fighting heroically n defense of the trampled liberties of of their country in the evermemorable everglorious year of 1798 Father Kavanaugh then amid deaf uing cheers laid the foundationstone which came from the historic Three Rocks a camping ground of the insurgents and the scene of a skirmish with the British soldiery a Alderman Captain Maguire moveda1 That this meeting representative of all parts of the County Wexford as sembled on this memorable occasion of laying the foundation stone of a national memorial in honor of our gallant ances tors who so bravely fought for faith and fatherland in 08 hereby pledge our selves to continue the struggle they be queathed us until we see Ireland take her proper place among the nations 2 That we call upon the men of Vex ford and all who claim the honor of being descendants of the heroes of 98 to assistr in raising a memorial on this historic spot to the brave insurgents of whom all Wexford men feel justly proudIiAlderman James Stafford in seconding motion said the men of Wexford would never surrender their rights because they remembered the butchery carried on 250 years ago in the place where the monument was being laid and the sufferings inflicted on them a hundred years ago They depended for the com i pletion of the monument on the gener osity of the Wexford men not only at house but all over the world They in Irelandwould never cease working in the cause of 98 until in Emmets words 1 their country took her place among the free and independent nations of the worldcc Mr Peter Frenah in supporting the I meetingd1 sneers there was still a real live IrishJJ question for England to face There J were a thousand proofs of it there that i day Too much praise could not be given to the valor of their forefathers who after suffering intolerable persecution I and infamy rose in their strength and sWept the English force out of the

extract from one of a series of papers contributed to the Freemans Journal entitled Romance of the Land War Incidents and Experi ences of the Plan of Campaign and refers to the Portumna clearances liThe clanging of the chapel bell j sounding an alarm which was but too well understood roused us from bedbf early on the following morning When got to the streets a strange feeling of j excitement and expectancy was everywhere noticeable A grave earnest expression was settled on every ones feat ures and a fire as if lit by bitter thoughts flashed from mens eyes with a peculiar resigned sullenness The fever j ish gloom was as visible on the counte nances of the newspaper correspondents as on those most immediately affected Their natural feelings of compassion for the oppressed became excited to rage as their judgments were convinced that the days procedings land no sanction of right or justice and could be properly stigmatized as outrageous cruelty aud robberyThe police permanently stationed at Woodfordat the time was a force numer ous enough to keep the peace of a fair J sized city To assist at the enforcement of the laws decrees of dispossession it was greatly strengthened while at Por tumna another force of police and a reg intent of infantry were collected to escort and guard the sheriffs bailiff and the agents brigade of emergency men liAs the morning wore on groups of people from every side could be seen going toward the scene of the intended evictions About 10 oclock my friends and I set out also for the general trysting ground At this distance of time I can J not recall the names of the tenants who were that day marked for victims The scene of the first sacrifice was down by the Shannons shore the victim an evidently good and thrifty husbandman The dwelling was a long wellthatched building Some of the farm buildings were slated The farm was well fenced trim and in a good state of cultivation It was with others approached by a long narrow boreen or lane This on the occasion was blocked at two or three points by felled trees to check and retard the approach of the crowbar brigade The gate entering the farm yard was fastened up in an elaborate tangle of chains iron bars old cart j wheels and other lumber all held by locks and rivets The windows of the j dwelling were removed and the spaces a filled with timber logs securely wedged together A thin blue column of smoke rising straight in the still air to the bright sky indicated that the owner and his family were in the house awaiting the i coming of the invaders A multitude of people were present whose sympathy jJ with the selfimprisoned occupants wasII manifested by encouraging cheers In a little time the blowing of horns from neighboring elevations signaled the approach of the evictors and all unIexpectedly fleet of boats were also ob served on the Shannon approaching from Portumna The enemy had divided his forces and sent some by water and some by roada course which gave the pro ceeding a still greater appearance of war its plots and stratagems and deadly purposes The office bailiffs were the bluejackets on that occasion and their baggage consisting of bedding cooking utensils and some personal belongings was the freight which they brought with them They had of course a strong police escort to protect their persons from danger and molestation The land forces consisted of the sheriffs bailiffs and their guard of police and military and their implements consisted of the usual levellers tools sledges crowbars hatchets pickaxes spadesshovels ropes and ladders supplemented on that occa sion by an immense heavy beam three strong spars and two powerful ship theghousesrawhere any resistance was offered The eviction brigade was the first on scene But the removal of the felled sonicedelay and labor At length they reached the farmyard gale This after an in spection and some vain tugging and hammering was left undisturbed and spade bar and pickaxe were vigorously plied to make a gap in the fence At the various pauses and difficulties which reo tarded the evictors the multitude cheered poe lice officers to show what they were there for How dare a crowd of Galway peasants make any demonstration of their plcaure at the difficulties with which the work of the despoiler was impeded I It was rank sedition a rebellious contempt I of the sacred functions of law and or der in which they were engaged I II Drive back the people draw batons charged Forth sprang in long open line the force of police beating without cause or reserve all whom they eould reach Then a wide cordon of military was formed round the farmstead inside which no civilians but the bailiffs were permitted Priests public men andall who could be suspected of any sympathy with the tenant were kept hundreds of j yards away from the scene of action Entrance being effected to the farm yard the subsheriff advanced to the dwelling knocked at the door and die manded possession He got no answer Again more loudly he made his per eniptory claim Again no reply came from within After a pause the sheriff ordered the batteringram to be erected Slow and toilsome was the process of its adjustment erecting the three spars into triangle and suspending from it by the ship chain the long ponderous beam At length the machine was erectedand after a few swings it was driven at the door which after a few strokes fell in splinters revealing a rude but shaken barricade of logs These the bailiffs were ordered to remove but on their approaching to do so they got such- a souse of hot water that they speedily retreated The batteringram was then directed against the wall between the j door and window and a large breach being made the bailiffs and a posse of police rushed in and gave some vengeful lows to the inmates for time pain of the scalding water and the labor theyo had caused them The inmates were then brought out prisoners the furniture was flung into the yard the cattle driven from the land and Law and order were vindicated A Galway peasant was robbed of home and property his less house demolished and his family housef LAGER BEER Growth of Its Manufacture and Use By Americans In Which Louisville Beer Holds First Place When German lager beer was intro duced into the United States very few imagined that at any time it would become so important a factor among the beverages of this country as to push itself gradually into first place In those days when lager beer was put to its test the American peopleif they indulged in spirituous drinks stallused to prefer whisky or the English porter and ale and looked down on the new competitor as entirely inferior to the1old favorites However in the course of a decade the manufacturing of lager spread over many States of the Union and very soon the foaming beer invaded almost every cityII and town of any significance It was not only the delicious taste but also the harmlessness of the beverage that made fast friends for it at any place it went and which brought about its stay wherever introducedOf nobody at that time dreamed of the almighty Trust and nobody thought that this deadly enemy of honest labor and industry would even try to force the peoples beverage under its mer ciless control A lager such as most of the Beer Trust companies nowadays are offering the public would have beenII vigorously objected to and would have prevented the adoption of beer as the na tional beverage of the new continent The Beer Trust at present seems to try its best to turn the consumers taste toward stuff which poor material hasty work and cheap labor bring out combinedly and it is a good thing that there are still many brewers in America that refuse to join the Trust despite the most tempting propositions and who instead take a pride in supplying their customers with the genuine excellent lager made of malt and hops and not of cheap and health destroying substitutes Our local brewing companies Senn Ackerman and Frank Fehr for instance have always furnished their customers a firstclass beverage and therefore rightfully enjoy a steadily growing patronage Beer Trusts and Brewing Combines time and again have entered this city from other business centers but their capital although employed in vast quantities hasI never been a successful investment The citizens of Louisville are Kentuckians and as such know and appreciate a good thing when they drink it Therefore give the Louisvillians Louisville beer and let other people swallow whatever they choose A HAPPY EVENT A very large and jolly crowd enjoyed a pleasant evening at the home of Mr and Mrs Michael Ward of Tenth and Rowan streets one evening last week the occa sion being the reception given in honor of the

AMERICAN 326 West Green Street I U LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY NOV 19 1898 ENGLISH BLUSTER The Fashoda incident passes for the present by the French retiring without however yielding tit point of contention after forcing England to assert a claim fraught with trouble for the future That the claims of England are not well1 founded and that the war talk an preparations are campaign blus ter to bolster up the Salisbury party is evident from the tone off the opposition press We quote th following from the Dublin Inde pendentThe Yellow Book issued by the French Government on the Fa shoda question presents the firstL authentic version of the French side of the controversy which ha been the talk of Europe for the past month In many respects the pub lication of which but a brief epi tome is telegraphed comes in the nature of a disappointment lacking as it does the allimportant dispatch from Marchand himself withoutt which a complete review of the situation has been practically impossible With this exception however there is no reason to find fault with the Yellow Book as a complete answer to the Blue Book recently issued by the English Foreign Office That there are two sides to the Fa shoda question is made so plain that the wonder is how the Jingo speak ers who have lately been electrify ing English audiences should not have thought of such a possibility And that the French side has quite as much sound argument in iits favor as the English must also be apparent while over and above all the conclusion that Lord Salisbury is painfully overmatched in the matter of diplomatic fencing is evi dent even from the cursory report of the Yellow Book telegraphed The strong point of the EnglishJ position may be briefly stated as follows As long ago as 1895 Sir Edward Grey in Parliament made the statement that an advance by France on the upper Nile would be considered by the British Government as an unfriendly act Three years later when Sir H Kitchener at the head of an army of English and Egyptian troops rescued this territory from the sway of Khalifa he discovered a band of Frenchmen with a handful of African troops iin possession of a small town Fashoda a few hundred miles beyond Om durman Ignoring the fact that the Frenchmen had already taken formal possession of the place to the extent of planting the tricolor the Sirdar proceeded to claim sov ereign rights there for England or Egypt which is practically the same thing And thereupon the contest for ownership of Fashoda was transferred from the banks of the Nile to London and Paris Lord Salisburys dispatches go into more detail as to the rights of England in the premises but one of his points intended as a strong argument turns out to be the veryI weakest and practically gives theI case away to the French That is that by right of conquest all the territory subject to the Khalifa prior to the battle of Omdurraan should become subject to England after that battle To all these ar guments the French Foreign Min ister has given a complete and satis factory answer Thus in regard to Sir Edward Greys declaration regarding an unfriendly act the then French Foreign Minister MI Hanotaux lost no time in repudiat iug this version of international law and furthermore instructed the French Ambassador in London to address a similar protest to Lord Kimberley who was then English 4 Foreign Minister Had England1 intended Sir Edward Greys dictum to be taken seriously the time for such action was upon receipt of thee French protest but failing to do so the only natural conclusion wa that the words of Sir Edward Grey were not to be taken literally by the thedright of conquest to Fashoda as part of the territory under the sway offpointseout that this plea was immediately answered by the Quai dOrsay to the effect that Fashoda itself was not under the sway of the Khalifa and that therefore the right of conquest really established the French claim to the disputed point A subs Engt land namely that Fashoda was in reality subject to the Khedive all the time and that the Khalifa was merely a rebel whom the Sirdar suppressed for the benefit of the Egyptian Government is complete ly answered by the French Minis ter As far back as 1893 he says that is to say two years before Sir Edward Grey made his famous declaration it was pointed out to the English Government that the Soudan had been practically lost to Egypt This view of the situation was even then adopted by the English Government itself who proceed d to conquer for England an important part of the equatorial provinces In view of this the question asked by the French Min Ester in the Yellow Book is exceed ingly pertinent How could the freedom of action which Great Brit ain thus took to herself be denied to us And in support of this conten tion he points out that there have ontprotesteminent Having thus successfully disputed every point raised by the British Blue Book M Delcasse in his official message goes a step further and practically explains the origin of all the Jingo talk which is now setting England ablaze In conversation with Sir E Monson the English Ambassador at Paris the only reply that the latter could make to the plain statement of facts adduced by the French Minister was that the English Cabinet considered itself too far pledged on its previous public declarations to be able to give up possession of FaIshoda Or in other words no matter that France may have right on its side and the English conten tion has been proven to be as full of hopes asa sieve yet in order toI make good the Jingo pronouncements j of HicksBeach Chamberlain and Devonshire the British Cabinet j is prepared to go to war for the possession 1 of a place which never be longed to them Such an exposi 1 tion of arrant bluff was perhaps 1 never recorded in a diplomatic docjj ument In this light the alleged tremendous preparations for war being made at the Englishnaval dockyards become in reality little better than so much waste of money Lord Roseberys declara tionr that England should claim the Nile from end to end appears cventt more ridiculous after the publication of the Yellow Book And thet probabilities of war become if pos sible remoter than ever The old adage about barking dogs never bite will apply to the present sit uation There has been altogether too much vociferation about the English dogs of war to warrant any serious expectation that they will slip their lleashes We regret to see the Courier Journal becoming illiberal 1 I ENTUCI Y IRISH AltIERICAN ENGLANDS HYPOCRfCY EX POSED Englands great friendship fo America manifested during the war with Spain and made the basis I of all the gush and toadyism f those who advocate an Anglo American alliance turns out to be a fake or a bit of diplomatic lying to attain a purposea very old English trick The great love of England for America attested by her refusal to join the Europea- powers in intervening in behalf of Spain in the war with this country has been heralded as a great service in our behalf which deterred all1 Europe from aiding Spain and com pelled the observance of neutrality i which left Spain to fight it out alone trutlst overtakes and exposes the falsifier and hypocrite The European pow ers never proposed intervention in the war and England did not as she could not by her refusal to participate prevent what was nevc proposedThis is made by the Russian Minister at Washington and it is plain that his state uncut has the full concurrence of the other European powers This statement has not been published1 by the AngloAmerican press though they continue to prais Englands friendly act and criti cise the alleged unfriendliness off other European governments to ward America as a result of Spains appeals to them against the demand for the surrender of the Philippine islands an appeal that was never madeCount Cassini the Russian Ambassador says that Russia naturally felt much interest in the status of the Philippines owing to their close proximity to the eastern possessions of that empire There was no war rant however he said for the re ports coming from Paris that Rus sia had been appealed to by Spain with a view to limiting the claims of the United States in the Philip pines No such appeal had bee made to Russia or to other foreign governmentsThroughout the regent war Russia has maintained the most friend ly attitude toward the United States and the Ambassador said that he did not doubt this would have a good effect in continuing the firmI friendship which has so long exist ed between Russia and the Unite 1l StatesIn this connection Count Cassiniii took occasion to join issue with th prevailing view that England show ed her conspicuous friendship for the United States during a criticalj state in the war with Spain by de dining to join the great powers off Europe in a move for intervention The Ambassador says he has heardIl this report frequently and it seem i to be accepted in this country as apart of the history of the recentt war and as the basis for much ap plause for England at the expens- of the old great powers of Europe But Count Cassini says that no such action on the part of Greatt Britain ever took place and thatt the impeachment of the continuedI friendliness of the other powers isi due to a misapprehension of the facts At no time he says was there a purpose on the part of the great powers to intervene against the action of the United States so that there never was an occasion for such display of English friend ship in checking the designs of the great powers as is generally presented Count Cassini says that the storyI although very widely circulated and generally accepted as fact is nothing less than a fable and for the truth of history as well as for theI removal of this groundless reflec tion upon the attitude of the Euro J pean powers toward the United States this tale should not be ac J cepted as a part of the record of the war He does not give this merely as personal opinion but as estab lished fact learned during visits to Paris and Berlin as well as to St PetersburgWhile no way reflecting upon I any other power the Russian Aih j bassador feels that it is but simple I 4- justice tQ Russia and other Conti nental powers that the consistent towardrthe United States throughout every period of the war and continue to hma111tatnIS Government should not be obscured by any sentimental fiction as to the excep tional friendship of one nation and the enmity of others Another attache of the Russian embassy said jointtany European or c against the United States in the Philip pine affair is made without the least knowledge of the policy lately formulatedI by the foreign officers at St Petersburg This policy far from having hosti designs against this country was adopted for the purpose of drawing the traditional 1 ties of friendship more closely The United States is the neighbor of Asiatic Russia on the eastthe only neighbor our great remarry has of whose integrity and friendship we are certain Russia anti the United States have no 1rival aspirations therefore we form our plans always counting on the United States as a counterbalancing for against European intrigues- r Russia hopes one day to dominate the Old World just as slue hopes to see the United States control the new Dut Russia always hopes for the commercial help this continent can give her Tire dream of our economists always has been that with the opening of the Siberian railroad the Pacific ocean would become a grer highway of commerce carrying to your Western States the vast wealth of tl Indies China Japan and the transCas pian countries planteect in the Siberian countries one of the most wonderful colonies in the history of col- on1ntion Its choice of this location was determined by the assurance that the United States faithful to traditions would promote its success by cooperating with us commercially Russia would infinitely prefer that the Philippines should pass into the hands of any strong government capable of maintaining law and order than that the recent conditions should be restored1 Since we wish any sovereignty there rather than Spanish does it not seem inconsistent that we should object to the United States on which we place our main reliance Nothing would please Russia more than to have the territory of the United States cone nearer the Asiatic slior The circumstance of the conquest ti nature of the aboriginal population the political status of the islands all demand that the United States shall keep what was gallantly won by an admirable navy Russia would be the last country to ob moonII in nn honorably conducted war It Muchas one rejoices over the election of his party

RULEf Irish Homo Rule Is Not Dead ns Its Enemies Wish and Declare t C t Ireland aim NoV Ho Governed by Coercion and Force Onuses Only Trouble Home Government mid Home Rule Throughout Ireland the Only Remedy 1 SPJ2ECH OF HERBERT OlADSTONE f Ijterbert Gladstone M P in a speech to his constituents in Leeds recently rev feired as follows to home rule and the Irish local government bill A good many wiseacres have been saying of late that home rule is dead Those whffsay so I think are not pos scssed of a very high order of political intelligence If these gentlemen who glibly talk of home rule being dead ever studied the history of Irelands relations with England let us say through this century have they not observed that through the whole course of the nineteenth century no single Government whether Whig Radical Liberal or Tory hasbeen able to turn that Old Man of the Sea off its shoulders Every year Ireland has come to the front Jin some shnpc compelling the attention of Eng lish Governments and Parliaments and people Through the century the gov ernment of the country has been carried on by means of specially contrived coer cion acts The whole history of this country teems and bubbles over with Irish affairs This Government appealed tolhe country in 1895 so that Parliament might quit of the Irish question What htfve we seen Every year this Unionist Government supported by its 150 ma jqKty has been compelled to give its first attention to the government the education and the maintenance of peace and order in Ireland Am Itobe told with these facts before me that home rule is dead Undertying all the Irish movements of time nineteenth century there has been one common denominator one dominant feeling which has guided and governed sometimes misguided and misgoverned but has always influenced Irish thought and action That dominant feeling is the wish to be put on n level with this country in its forms of government If yon have not 1 learned that lesson I am sorry for you I stand byit and I shdll continue to do so It is under these cir cumstances we ore told home rule is dead It is not Only recently I was reading a speech by the Irish Attorney General or Solicitor General I forget which He said home rule was not dead It was very n rtcli alive and always would be while there were eighty Irish home rule mem bfrs of Parliament If ova home rulers are right insaying fiat this question is at the root of all the Irish movements of the country how dove stand We are face to face with Mr Balfours alternative policy of Irish local government and the policy of killing ifome rule with kindness which simply means giving a good deal of money to Ireland So far asf our position as home rollers is concerned we never stood better than we do today and the prospects of Irish home rulers were never brighter I shy it without the slightest qualification It is the old situation over again with tins difference The Irish Nationalists aVe in a uiuclv better position because of the experience all parties have gained There iis another factor and that is the local government act That act is the last shot in the locker of the Conserva tives against home rule If that falls short what can they fall back upon Only upon the old old system of coercion They have made this throw and they are all anxiously watching the result Per sonally I thought we made a great mis take in 1891 when we did not give hearty support to the then Irish local govern ment bill of the Tory Government by our opposition we gave that Government an excuse for not going on with U Now however the case is different They have brought forward a much better bill than that of 1891 and itJs now the law of the land They have given theIrish people the same democratlcsystem we have in this country they have given them full powers over such matters as are placed in the hands of county councils apdtcity councils in this country The Conservatives say they have given them ill they could reasonably ask that it will settle the country and that we shall hear no more about home rule Well that is an open question But in the event of Irishmen being true to hone rule as I am absolutely Convinced they will be how does this act affect thev question I have said be foreand5 say jtviibw tyitlrconsiderable authorityto rely upon =I said it was per fectly obvious if you gave a democratic system of local selfgovernment to Ire land and set up county councils all over the land the Nationalists would run candidates in every province Jh every parish of Ireland and in fivesixths of those new assemblies there wQuld be an overwhelming Nationalist majority I +have just been reading a speech by Mr Dillon What does he say He says it will be the duty of those new bodies to take advantage of the act to turn their attention at once to local affairs and to do their best for the people so far as the provisions of the act will enable them to do so But he says it will also be their duty to express a decided opinion that the pne essential tngl is that there lohbufr beaceutralbody in Dublin to which ail those local authorities can look and appeal If they do that one can i

week The companys excellent presentation of the great play has made so pronounced a lilt that the Temple was crowded at every performance and even standing room has been at a premium All the seats

we are assembled here to erect this monument on one of the most historic spots in Ireland A spot where centuries ago their forefathers were slaughtered by Cromwell and on a spot where a hundred years ago time victorious arms of the descendants of those martyred Irishmen drove their English foes from Wexford and in their day of triumph garlanded their old houses with green as you have garlanded them a hundredl years after I say therefore that every circumstance has combined to make this meeting an historic one And as ifall this was not enough we have had this foundation stone laid by a man who de scended himself from a Wexford rebel in OS has done more I venture to think to make the heroism of your forefathers known throughout the world than any man living I congratulate this old town on the proceedings of today I congratu late myself on having as a Wexford man been here t6 take my proper part in these proceedings and I hope that the lesson of this day will not be lost upon you I wish I could address the young people who are listening to methe young peo pIe of this town After all the future is with the young of Ireland rely upon that and I hope that from the proceed ings of today you will learn to study and to love the history of your country wherein you will read of devotion to faith and fatherland unsurpassed in the pages of any history in the world 1 hope you will learn from the proceedings of today and from the sight of the monument when erected that after the duty which they owe to their Creater the first and greatest of the duties of an Irishman is to cherish undying hatred to foreign rule in this country to be prepared by every and any means open to brave and honorable men to advance the cause of Irish freedom and realize from the study of the history of 98 the necessity of charity of toleration and unity also in the cause of Ireland the necessity of endeavoring to bring Catholics and Protestants to gether the necessity of going on to the last of your days fighting in this cause and the dutyif we do not succeed in our timimeof handing on as it has been hqnd ed on to us to our children who come after us the duty of perpetu ating the struggle for Irish freedomm If these lessons are borne in the minds of the young people of today you will well and worthily have celebrated this cen tenary year and will have done your duty to those in the past of your ownxkith and kin and name who in this old town this historic county laid down inI lives for Ireland one hundred years ago Tug IORD MAYOR OF DUBLIN who was received with great cordiality expressed his thanks for the honor con ferred on him in being invited to take part in the ceremonial of laying the foundation stone of a monument to the melnory of their forefathers Although not a Wexford mall he needed to make no apology for being in their midst be cause he was the son of a Wicklow rebel He felt it was his duty to come there and testify his fidelity to the principles of his forefathers They had laid a monument on the historic and sacred spot to the memory of their fathers It struck him as in one sense unnecessary because a motjment had been laid by God which would last for all time as a testimony of what their fathers had done a itmtdre- years ago The lesson taught by these things was a lesson of unity If time were wise in their generation they woul be united in erne thing never to ceas their efforts until they had an Irish Par liament in College Green When in their magnificent procession he saw the youth and manhood of Wexford assembled he had nodoulit that by being united and attending to the teaching of their fathers the day was n tfar distant when they would have all for which their forefathers had fought Inconclusion he urged the people to see that the history of their country was taught in their schools which did not teach it as much as the should and he also suggested that they should learn their native tongue MR W II REDMOND who

England floated over this laud they never know the hour when England would strike at them again The spirit of England the wish of the English people for Ireland was no better now and in his heart he believed that as it was one hundred years ago Eng land would murder them would burn their chapels and pitch cap them again only they dare not do it While they honored the men who died one hundred years ago at the same time they told England to her teeth that they were ready that they were strong and that sooner or later with Gods help they would complete the work begun one hundred years ago SIR RATTAN THOMAS OSVONIW M 1 said the pleasant pageant which had passed along their streets that day was a grand and inspiring proclamation of the manhood of Wexford of which any Irishman might well feel proud It was worthy of Wexford and worthy of the occasion Might the movement for the erection of 1898 monuments prosper and extend There were abundant evidences that it was extending Gorey and Wex ford had already laid their foundation stones Now Ross would follow suit and Oulart and Enniscorthy had already progressivedshape which did honor to them all Their towns were studded with statues LieutentsdEuropeericher in historical reminiscences than their country But what had they to show for that Where were their memorials to the glorious field of Clouterf or the Pass of the Yellow Ford or the battle of Benburb All this must be changed This would now raise fitting monuments to 1798 but they must not stop there The work must go back to the days of the Irish kings He advo sated the formation of an association for throughoutyand the great events of Irish history Mr James OConnor solicitor Dublin and Mr P J Lawlor hawing spoken the resolutions were adopted and a vote of thanks to the Mayor of Wexford for presiding was passed NIGHTeAt night the town was extensively il luminated in every street The windows were ablaze with candles and there was scarcely a house in time town which was not lighted up Nothing could have been prettier than the effect of the illumina tions combined with the bright decora tions and the animated scene out of doors Despite the inclemency of the weather the streets seemed hardly able to accom modate the crowds National sentiment found enthusiastic expression on all sides and bands passed up and down approh priate airs Time visit of the Lord Mayor of Dublin to Wexford is regarded as a special honor by the inhabitants as this ttis the first time within living memory when the Chief Magistrate of the Capi dtal has paid the ancient town of Wexford the compliment of a visit The Lord Mayor is the guest of the Mayor of Wex ford THE BANQUET A banquet most representatively attended was held at night in time Town Hall The Mayor of Wexford and a company of seventy sat down to table liThe Memory of the Dead proposed by the Mayor was honored by the sing ing by Mr Mark Bourke of Who Fears to Speak of 1708 with an impressive chorus Sir Thomas Esmonde Bart MP in whichnmust be honored more thftii any other in the capital of the county of 1718 He paid a high compliment to the historian of 17Q8 Father Kavanaugti and the ti Y Lord Mayor both of whom were present He expressed the intense gratification which the county of Wexford felt at the presence of the Lord Mayor Tallon was au incident in the agreeable proceedings of the day which would be long remembered amonst them Speaking to a mixed gathering of Irishmen united in honor the memory of the dead he was glad that there was not a single discordant note They were united for the main purpose of the men of 1798 I The Mayor of Wexford proposed Ire I land a Nation He said they all knew and felt that Ireland was already a nationi but the warmest aspiration of their heartsi t was to see Ireland take her place among the nations of the earth Mr William Remond MP responded to the toast which was honored by the singingof Let Erin Remember He said the reason he was called on to respond to the toast was that he was a greater number of years working for the idea of Ireland a nation than anybody present It was fifteen years since he had been asked to cuter Parliament and I the request came from a source he most I wished it to come fromthe Nationalists of Wexford who were a stronghold and a center of the spirit which underlies theI sentiment of Ireland a nation Nobody i had a better right to honor this toast than the men of Wexford It was with the idea of Ireland a nation that the flag of Ireland was hoisted over the town of Wexforda hundred years ago and the streets were then decorated as they were today It was with the idea of Ireland a I nation that the Wexfordmen struggled with arms for freedom a hundred years ago As far as physical force was con cerned they the Wexfordmen could claim that their county did more to make Ireland a nation than any other district in Ireland If the rest of Ireland followed the example of Wexford they would be toasting not the aspiration of Ireland a Nation but the celebration of the fact that the struggles of their followers had been successful The county of Wexford was the county to return time first four Home Rule members If the difficulties in the National movement were laid away and if in the future they were to be reunited to form up in the array of battle in the years spared to him by God still he would do all that in him lay to carry out the traditions handed down to him by his father who repre seated the town of Wexford and whose dearest desire as a Wexfordnian was to thoroughly voice the aspirations of the Wexfordmen to make Ireland a free nation again As long as England treated them as they were now treated Eng land ought not to look for sympathy or help from the Irish people or Wexfordl people

the Limerick cor poration Mr John Kirelihan proposed j that in commemoration of the fight made in 1798 for civil and religious liberty certain streets in the city should be I named after Wolfe Tone

affirming the decision of Queens Bench County Tyrone Thomas Hegar ty an evicted tenant who had been put back on land in Donegal as caretaker sued for trespass Thomas Dillon who had purchased the land at Sheriffs sale The court decided in favor of Hegarty holding that a person deemed to be put in possession as caretaker under the 7th section of the act of 1887 had having regard in particular to the words of sub section 3 of section 7 such a special pOSt session of the lands of which he was so put into possession as to entitle him to maintain an action for trespass against a wrongdoerAmong the

on the round that the buildings on the appeared l04 and pasture holdings of lloo and under being included by the Act of 1896 within the fair rent provisions of the Land Act of 1891 counsel intimated that it was his intention if the valuation ofi the holding amounted to over 1100 to raise the question whether the Holdingr was a pasture holding or not He contended that the Land Commision could not properly adjudicate upon time questionI until the valuation of the holding had1I been announced Mr Clancy for the tenant said that iitl was the most daring application that he had ever heard made in that or in another yr court It was as if a plaintiff or a defendant in an ordinary action after the pleadings had been closed had discovered 1 a vital defect in his case and then applied for a postponement in order to enable him to vamp up his case He saidl I that if the application were acceded to iitt CharteL delaying jus lice and he added that in any case the landlord would not be

Nat Wilson of Mt Sterling last Monday The bout was fast from the call of time until the third round when Wilson connected with his opponents jaw and put hint out Clay fought here with Steve CrosbyThe contest between Tommy West the conqueror of Joe Walcott and Mysterious Billy Smith ended in a draw Smith did not show up in his oldtime form against 1his black opponent who fought cool and steady throughout the whole contest Toward the close of the mill it lookedas if Smith would be knocked out but he was able to go the whole limit and by an agreement between the principals if both men were on their feet at the close of the contest it should be declared a draw As the McCoyMaher fight has been officially declared off McCoy has been matched for another meeting with his oldtime rival Tommy Ryan of Syracuse to take place before the Lenox Club sometime in December The fight is to be at 158 pounds and of twentyfive for the middleweight champion ship of the world and a purse of 12000 his match will probably prevent the meeting between Tommy Ryan and Jimmy Ryan whom Andy Mulligan had matched for a contest to be pulled off the latter part of this month This will be a disappointment to the followers of the manly art in Louisville as they have been looking forward to this contest ever since it was announced Jack Bonner who is to meet Jack Root here on November 22 arrived in the city the early part of the week He was accompanied by Bob Dillon who will act as his sparring partner and who will be in his corner at the coming bout Bonner came here from Jim Corbetts training quarters where he was acting as Corbetts sparring partner He expects- to enter the ring at about 160 pounds and in order to do this he will have to work hardas he appears to weigh in the neighborhood of 180 pounds He is very confident of defeating Root but ex pects a hard fight as he knows Jack is a hardnut to crack Root is also training hard and expects to enter the ring the best condition of his life He says that this will be the best bout ever pulled off at Music Hall Messrs Cook and West have an additional feature for this in the telegraphic description by rounds of the fight between Corbett and Sharkey A large crowd should go to see this contest as the management de- erve some praise for their efforts to furnish such fine sportC- ENTENNIAL CELEBRATION The centennial celebration held at
