KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN 1 I d VOLUME INO 21 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY NOVEMBER 26 1898 PRICE FIVE CENTS F CARNEGIE Declares Against Imperialismt or the Annexation of the Philippines The Greatest Steel Manufact layer on Earth Expresses His Reasons Yarns the President That II Must Reckon With All Europe THE PEOPLE WILL DECIDE RIGHTLY Andrew Carnegie the great Pennsylvania manufacturer has declared against the annexation of the Philippines an through the New York World gives his reasons therefor After complimenting the World for the position it has taken hesaysWe closer and closer to the prob lem and fortunately two members of the Cabinet have at last told us where they stand It is most desirable that the other r members speak out even if they take the side of imperialism- If the people today knew that Presi dent McKinley had convictions on the subject to which he would stand half the danger would be over Secretary Gage lass not only told us that he has changed his views and is a convert to imperialism but he has fortunately given us the reason All that is necessary is that our public men should give reasons for the Republic abandoning the policy which hus made her great He accepts the dangers and cost of imperial ism against his own wishes for the sake of commercial expansion Now Secretary Gage has never manu factured anything nor exported anything he is neither in manufacturing nor in commerce I am in both Our concern is today the largest manufacturer in the world in its line and I believe it is also today the largest exporter of manufact ures in the United States We have within two years begun to send our steel to all parts of the world Our sales reach into the millions of dol lars We have our London house now as have in New York The foreign busi 4wenessisgrowingbyJ apsandbU1uli Now one of the reasons why I oppose imperialism the acquisition of the Phil ippines for instanceis commercial ex pansionThe reason that Secretary Gage gives for acquiring the Philippines is the reason why I would not He believes it would be favorable to commercial expansion I know that it would be detrimental The Secretary gave no reason for thinking that the acquisition of distant posses sions would increase our foreign trade Permit me to state reasons why it would not increase but decrease it Foreign trade rests upon peace and see curity the waters must be calm disturb ing influences absent to foster trade in foreign parts Two weeks ago British consols fell 2 there was a rumor of war with France money needed by manufacturers and exporters rose to double what it had been Our financial operations in London covering our foreign trade were immediately transfened to New York which for the time became the financial centre of the world Money exchange was furnished us cheaper here than London could give The quiver that went through the com mercial world in Britain arrested commerce at many points New York was secure beyond the zone of disturbance there was no war rumor which affected the Republic Great Britain was within the zone and her business was disturbed Should we undertake to hold the Phil ippines we immediately place the whole Republic within the zone of wars and rumors of wars and the rumor of war it must be remembered is in itself destruc tive to commerce It was only rumors of war that threw us from London back to New York If Secretary Gage is not satisfied with the commercial expansion which this country is enjoying what will satisfy this man I have seen nothing like it in my lifetime nor have I read of anything comparable to it Without distant possessions the Repub lic solid compact safe from the zone of war disturbance has captured the worlds markets for many products and only needs a continuance of peaceful condi tions to have the industrial world at its feet Our exports now exceed the exports of Great Britain What does Secretary Gage mean by talking of commercial ex pansion to COllie when the question to day is how shall we meet the commercial expansion crowding upon us If the Secretary of the Treasury has time to spare let me suggest that he can use it to better advantage studying how to give to our exporters suitable steam I ship lines to carry away the traffic that i offered This is the one great want o I the United States in the way of commer cial expansion not the management o barbarous regions involving race trouble- far exceeding those we have at home I There is another point that Secretary Gage fortunately has to consider I should like to ask the Administration one question which the President and Cabinet must coon think of I Are the Philippines to be considered part of the American Republic as Porto i Rico it and are we to keep them for our p o selves as we have Porto Rico excluding the world from equal trade rights with themSuppose President McKinley says Yes I have always stood for American labor I am its great champion I am a protectionist to the core I begin to grow doubtful about the President having convictions upon any subject but if he has a conviction it iis this that it is tide duty of an AmericanI President to take care of American labor I Well he will have done so when he announces that he is going to obey the Constitution i of the United States although in these days the Constitution seems toI be as Tim Campbell once said to Presi stanod between friends But suppose the President is true to the Constitution and his oath to support it then there is free trade between all parts of the United States andjthe Philippines as there is to Porto Ricolie has stood I true therebut there is a high tariff be tween the trade of all other nations and the Philippines- I believe the President will be trivet to hold this position What ensues War 1 onlydupon that we keep the open door for her in the Philippines and iin allother of our distant possessions The London Times has already given a strong hint upon this subject in referring to the Presidents bottling up Porto Rico Let the President listen to this from the London Times editorial Englishmen have seen with ungrudging satisfaction the entrance of America on the path off imperial expansion which they have themselves trodden with such conspicu ous success But it must be confessed that a considerable strain is put upon our sympathy by such blunders as the order legulating the trade of Porto Rico which our correspondent cites and which read as if it were borrowed from our own nav igation acts which the Americans them selves found so oppressive The most sensitive chord of Britain iis its foreign trade upon that it depends Let the President of the United States once show that the American system is to be extended to the Philippines and that Secretary Gage had some foundation for his idea of commercial expansion for the advantage of American labor and iit will not be necessary for Britain openly to intervene Prance Germany and Russia as is well known are opposed to America enterin upon possessions in the far East Those nations combined drove Japan out of Co rea they will drive the United States out of the Philippines always provided Britain agrees to do what she did with Japan occupy a neutral position But I go further than this She will requirethvUuited Stateto BgreeJo keep the open door as she required Ger many to do Of course Germany him agreed to keep the open door in her East ern possessions She wouldnt have any if she had not Neither will the United States for let it be noted that 70 percent of the total trade of the Philippines is today British- I have spoken of European nations but there is a nation quite near the Phil ippines with which the United States would find it most difficult to deal at so great a distance for remember it is a question of naval strength Here is what the Minister of Japan said the other day Every year its trade with the Philip pines has increased uutil now it has be come of very respectable proportions Naturally my government is interested in seeing that this trade shall continue and as it firmly believes the ports of the islands will be freely opened to Japan if the United States governs the islands it would rather see America gain control than any other nation- I was consulted last week in regard to taking an offer of 60000 tonsof steel plates for delivery in Western Australia My feeling was that we should wait results Let us see whether we do not get into trouble in regard to the open door or the closed door in the Philippines If we do of course there is no delivery in Western Australia possible to the extent of 60000 tons of steel to be made by American labor Mr Gages commercial expansion is hindered This steel may not be made in the United States So much for imperialism and its foreign complicationsSuppose President McKinley in order to hold the Philippines all has to grant the open door where will Sec retary Gage and his commercial expan sion stand then What will labor in the United States say to the recreant Presi dent What compensation is it to have What justification can be pleaded for paying twenty or forty millions for the Philippines and for sacrificing the blood of our soldiers and the lives of our civil servants involved in this acquisition if no advantage accrues What answer will he make to the people upon whom lie imposes additional taxation- I think I know what the laboring masses of the United States will say to him and to any government that throws upon the country such sacrifices of life and such burdens only to open its costly acquisitions to the nations of the world If it be fair competition with other nations that we require for commercial expansion we are certain of that already thefopen In to President Gompers of the American rightspolicy bringing the Republic into the zone of European strife in the far East He will win and it only needs a few large em ployers of labor to speak to their people to carry the entire laboring people of the Union against the Presidents supposed treachery to the cause of American labor COUTKTORD ON THIRD PACK u 1 MARTYRED Allen Larkcn and OBrlcnWhoI Were Executed at Man chcstcrI Their Memory Being Commem Iorated Throughout the Country No Human Being Can Say It Was Just to Hang Them on the Evidence THEIR TRIAL SHOWN TO BA A FARC I In many cities in both this country andI Irelandanniversary celebrations are being held in memory of the Manchester mar tyrs Allen Larkin and OBrien FromI the Irish World we extract the following graphic description of their execution The judicial murder of the Irish pa triots Allen Larkin and OBrien at Mari chester England on November 23 1867 was on a par of infamy with any of the executions ordered upon the patriots of one hundred years ago Our readers are familiar with the story of the famous rescue of the Fenian pris oners Kelly and Deasey from the prison van in Manchester in 1867 and the trial and conviction of Allen Larkin OBrien Maguire and Condon for participation iin accisdental shooting of Sergeant Brett through the door of the van It will be remembered that the fact wa made so completely manifest notwithstanding the perjured testimony of the trial that Maguire was not on the scene of the occurrence and knew nothing whatever of it that a strong public senti ment was aroused against the judicial murder decreed against him By a philosophy of alleged law possi ble only under a Britishadministration when it was made evident to all after the trial that the evidence against him Was innog cent of any knowledge of the crime Maguire was pardoned and the other prisoners convicted on the same evidence were still held guilty The pardoning of Maguire said the merelyjustit everyonehati has undergone such contradictions as to render it impossible to found on it even a sentence of a months imprisonment Obviously to hang Maguire would have been under any circumstances a monstrous crime He never ought to have been quetionquestioninvolving but the lives of four men It is admitted that the evidence which identified Maguire cannot be relied upon Can we forget that the same evidence likewise identified Allen Larkin OBrien and Condon Every single witness who swore to Maguire swore also to one or all of the men who now lie under sentence of death Withdraw from the case the testimony of the witnesses who are now admitted to have been mistaken in the case of Maguire and what remains No human being can say it would be right to hang men on such evidence Condon who was an American citizen presented to the British Government a new difficulty when the pardon of Ma guire was announced The pardon showed the trial to have been a farce and Con dons execution on the strength of testi mony shown to have been perjured might cause serious consequences So Capt Condon was sentenced to life imprisonment and the remaining three Allen Larkin and OBrien were led to the scaffold on the same repudiated and false testimonyThey their deaths like true Christine patriots on November 23 At 745 in the morning the solemn procession was formed leading by a long staircase from the prison wall to the scaffold in the yard A line was formed in the jail court This sentries on duty ceased their walk magistrates and reporters stood aside and a dead silence prevailed for a moment At 803 oclock the solemn service of the priests repeating the litany of the church was heard and the head of the procession became visible about thirty yards from the foot of the staircase Allen and OBrien and their attendants having reached the top of the stairway waited on the inner platform until Larkin and the officials came up Then the door was flung open and the boy martyr was first led out upon the drop His face which was pale appeared working with the effects of strong mental agony The high priest of English rule over Irish men Calcraft came forward and placed the noose over Allens neck pulled a white cap over his face and then tied tils feet The pinioning of the arms allowed his hands from the elbow downward suf ficient freedom to clasp on his breast a crucifix whichever and anon as he spoke i loud the responses of the litany pressIoserNext OBrien was led forth On his fine manly face the closest scrutiny could not detect a trace of weakness He looked- calmly and sadly1 around then stepping pinionedd kissed him affectionately on the cheek speaking to him a word or two not over y 4 J platbywas fixed and his feet bound Larkin was now brought out and led directly onIthe left side of OBrienwho was in middle T4 4iTire sight of his two brother martyrs capped and piniohed hnd with the fatal cordaround each neck seemed to unman 04touchingl so that many thought he had fainted but it was not so though he was unquestion ably laboring under intense agony of mind OBrien firm and unshrinkingo the last turned and poked at him en couragingly and to hint also spoke a few words in a low tone Calcraft now dis appeared from view rihd the three men stood for a moment before the multitude their voices ringing ou clearly in the still morning air Lord Jesus have mercy on us f heardEthe three bodies sank hrough the traps Englands three halters strained tugged and twitched convulsively for a few mo ments and the deed vifas done her ven geance was accomplished The tragedy was the theme of the national anthem God Save Ireland written by T D Sul Bean immortalizing the fervent exclama tion of Capt Condon iii closing his speech from the dock when Use sentence of death was about to 1be pronounced EUCHRE AND DANCE The Ladles Auxiliary Will Entertain Their Friends Next Wednes day Evening A large number of invitations have oftthe Ladies Auxiliary of the Ancient Order of Hibernians which takes place Wednesday evening at Hibernian Hall streetsThe lady officers tend members have arranged for a very pleasant evenings entertainment for their friends and the public and the hall should be crowded The

ago George J Butler was employed at his trade as a stonecut ter and regarded as one of the best work men in the city He had the confidence andrespect of his fellow workmen being their representative when the Soft Stone workers National Union was formed Owing to dullness at that trade he concluded tobranch out in business for him self and opened grocery atTwentieth and Portlandavenue Several of his friends thought his step ill advised but Mr Butler was possessed ofa determination that succeeds and at the close of his first year he was able to meet all his obliga tions and have a snug sum left Since that time he has pursued the same course until now he has one of the larg est and best equipped grocery stores in the West End Recently his place of business was enlarged and fittedwith new fixtures and his stock of goods is one of the finest in the city Besides being a good business man Mr Butler is highly respected by all his neighbors and the children prefer to trade with him because of his uniform kindness and courtesy His success has been phenomenal and a matter of surprise not only to his friends but to the busi ness community- We call the attention of our readers to his advertisement in another column PLEASING SMOKER Branch 24 of the Catholic Knights of America Celebrate Their Twen tieth Anniversary The officers and members of Branch 24 of the Catholic Knights of America entertained their friends Tuesday even ing at Sacred Heart Hall with a smoker and social reception The programme opened with several popular selections rendered by the Hickory Quartet Rev

Interesting remarks were also made by Air Pat Holley of Branch 21 Mr Mike Reichert andothers The proceedings were interspersed with vocal and musical selections and those present voted the smoker a success Visitors from other branches hope to see these smokers become general CONSECRATED I St Martins church was consecrated Thursday morning by Bishop Macs The ceremonies were the most imposing ever witnessed in this city I Qgy ROSCOMMON Banner of the United League Unfurled by the People of That County Landlordism Can Be Made Curse to Landlords as Well as Tenants Tho Folly of Prohibiting Public Meetings Apparent to the Constabulary WM OBRIEN AWAKENS ENTHUSIASMl On Sunday a large enthusiastic meeting was held in Castlerea in support of the principles of the United Irish League says the Dublin Freemans Journal of re cent date The Government appearedI to have recognized the folly and futilit of the measures taken in Ballinrobe andI Irishtown to suppress the right of public meeting and they refrained from pro claiming or prohibiting the meeting off Sunday There were in fact only three Consta bles and a District Inspector of Police iin evidence in the town and the uniqu- position of Ireland among the nations was made emphatically clear in the fact that owing to the absence of the police there was no breach of the peace and ti oi disorder of any kind The meeting was despite the most unfavorable weather min falling without cessation throughout the day one of very large dimensions Contingents came from districts from miles around Mr William OBrien who was th principal speaker was receivedwith loud and continued cheers and dealing with the Government neglect of the people in the famished districts he said The remedy is before their eyes A board nominated by a Tory Government have acknowledged that they have no power to enforce it Four years ago th Congested Districts Board confessed that this name of congested districts is a hideous lie and that there are lashings of splendid land within rifleshot of the poor little mountain rookeries to which land lordism has banished the people That is what it is the business of the United Irish League to point out and to insist upon SeveraPTiionUiaiagowii asked thata royal commission such as was appointed in Scotland should be appointed to g around Connaught and mark out all thes immense rich plains and pastures of Mayo and Roscommon which are lying practically idle in the hands of half bankrupt graziers lands sufficient for the support in humble comfort and hapE piness of four times the population o those socalled congested districts Thi was done in Scotland Why should it not be done in Ireland Our request wa not heard no royal commission was ape pointed and now we are going about Connaught on a rough and ready com mission of our own pointing out and earmarking all those square miles of depopulated grass lands in Mayo and Roscommon and Galway which are avail able on the same terms as the deer forests of Scotland to put an end to this plague of mendicancy and hunger in the Westthat is our crime The Royal Commission scheduled near ly two millions acres of land to be appropriated for the peoples benefit but the moment we point out still better lands in Mayo and Rosscommon we are driven off with baton charges and proclamations It is quite true we say this thing must be done compulsorily without the leave of the landlords The Royal Commission said the same for Scotland and the Congested Dis tricts Board four years ago said the same for Ireland They passed a unani mous resolution but without compulsory powers they could do little or noth ing but the compulsory powers never came and the famine did Well then we have got to go a step further now and we say pending com pulsory powers from Parliament we will bring into play the compulsory powers of public opinion and of perfectly legitimate trades union combination We are willing that the landlords should be fully compensated and that the graziers should be fully compensated A quarter of a million of the million and a half that is squandered every year upon police terrorism in one of the most peace ful countries on the earth would end the whole difficulty- I believe we have got nine out of eve ten respectable grazier in the West per fectly willing to join us in begging the Government to take these lands off their hands for the peoples benefit upon reasonable terms Well but if the Government wont do it if the landlords wont do it and if the grabbers wont do it we propose to show that the people have only to hold aloof altogether from those who are keeping these lands from them not to buy from them not to sell to them not to mow for them not to herd for them not to cut shuffle nor deal with them and this whole unnatural grazing system will tumble to the ground like a house o cards and the means by which we in voke the legitimate pressure and com pulsion of public opinion are precisely the same means by which the trades unionist fights the capitalist and the blackleg They are precisely the same means by which throe landlords in their 11 county clubs show the cold shoulder tto every man of their class who runs counter to their interests They arc the means by which the judges of the land never hesitate to snub and ostracise from their business any barrister who by taking a half crown fee or by any other breach of bar rules would betray the interests of his profes sionWe hold that the Irish farmers are no- L more bound by any law human or divine to foregather with the graziers or the grabber who is running their means of livelihood than for instance Judge OBrien would be bound to invite to dine with him those obstinate electors of Ennls who voted against him and wrecked his political career as an Irish patriot We are as ready to argue that issue out in Judge OBriens own court as we are here In all former agitations the cry of the Government was You are working by crime and outrage This time even the most outrageous of the coercionists can not say that and dare not say iit The Lord Lieutenant himself confessed in Belfast that there is no disposition to break the law He could not say other wise for let them rage and fume as they please they can not lay their hand upon a single murder a single attempt affraYy a single mutilation of cattle during the whole nine months of this agitation There is no getting over that fact We need not go further than the addresses of the judges to the grand jury at tim spring and summer assizes in both o which they declared there was no crime oer not they will send down to the winter Assizes some emergency judgesome peroe brainto retrieve the situation by a coercion harangue but the facts will be too strong for them It is not only in Mayo but in Roscom mon that the agents of Dublin Castlel have been the stirrers up of strife Well defensee of landlordism and of landgrabbing iis all very hateful but it is also in another sense very satisfactory What it proves is that all the enemies of our race are beginning to be in mortall terror of that combination of nationalists of all shades and sections which iis incher last hope is by a course of indiscrimi nate violence and brutality to try and get some pretext for striking down that combination before it broadens out into some new national movement as as the four seas of Ireland I need mo tell you that our English rulers one as asinine as usual in their prophecies and calculations One touch of coercionI makes theI whole Irish world akin Wall e Know wliafit islike Val andII givee us only six months more of the batonings and shad owings imprisonments and agorr provEcoldsThe Irish people with that wonderful haswherever the flag of coercion is flying there is the real fight going on for Ire land and there is the rallying point for every man who means business when he is talking ot Irish nationality For outside Counaught everything i ripe for another great struggle for the land of Ireland Prom the compulsory purchase of the grass lands of Connaughl the country will proceed and must pro ceed to the compulsory purchase of all the lands of Ireland at least under 150 or 200 valuation The land acts and the rand courts have hopelessly broken down They are a most cruel and expensive I farce The compulsory expropria tion of landlordism is the inevitable end and it will be the fault of the Irish peo pIe themselves if they do not bring the landlords to be the first to clamor for it Landlordism can be made and is already being made as great a curse to the landlords as it is to the tenants in the countryThe fact is that now more than ever there are only two possible alternatives EnglandEither has got to rule Ireland as a conquered country with the naked sword and trample out every vestige of the con stitutional rights she has just been giv ing us or else she has got to recognize that for the future Ireland will have to be governed not for the extermination of her people in the interest ofalien landlords and grabbers but will have to be governed by the peoples own freewill in accordance with the constitutional prerogative now conferred upon us and as becomes a nation of freemen i who will be the owners and the law makers of their native land a ENTERTAINMEry The Aquinas Union entertainment which was to have

preparations in England are due to some extent to jingoism and to bolster the Salisbury Ministry with the people the extensive increase in her navy and army in progress and urged for the future and the anxiety and activity manifested by the Government are caused by something more serious than the Fashoda incident or any of the passing events noted England is one of the few countries of the world

her manufact ures from abroad and finally to dispose of her manufactured product that her manufacturers ann their employes may be paid dividends and wages foreign markem are her sole reliance This

in the world busy night and day Saturdays and Sundays prepar ing engines for the coming struggle be tween the nations of Europe IRELANDS LINEN INDUSTRY The decline of the linen industry in Ireland has for long been the subject of regret to all who are interested in the material welfare of the country and at the present time energetic efforts are be ing put forward to revive what was once one of the most fruitful sources of Irish wealth The most earnest as well as the most successful efforts in this direction are being made by the good Sisters of Charity in many towns and indeed the convents of the country are all doing ex cellent work to bring back some of the prosperity which has been lost to the people The most remarkable instance of the untiring zeal and devotion of the good Sisters is supplied in the case of Foxford County Mayo Here the conditions of life which existed have been ab solutely changed and where there was but a short time ago poverty and wretch edness there is now contentment and happiness This has all been brought about through the practical commonsense and zeal of Mother Morrogh Ber nard and the ladles who are associated with her In Skibbereen equally excel lent work is being done by tire Sisters under the guidance of Mother De Sales who received her first two handlooms from time late Sir William Ewart of Bel fast There are many still living in the south of Ireland who can carry their minds back to the time when there was a thriving linen industry all through the southern counties That time unfortun ately has passed and the crack of the busy loom is no longer heard in the homes of the peasantry but it will not be the fault of the convent workers if all this is not speedily changed for the better Apart however from the hopeful indi cations afforded by the splendid work of the Sisters there is the alarming fact that in ten years the acreage under flax in Ireland has decreased from 100000 acres plainthatfuture the linen industry is bound to dis appear as completely from the north as it did from the south Ireland has un doubtedly been worsted in the competi tion with other countries but in this connection it must be borne in mind that in Belgium the government takes a lively interest in the prosperity of the in dustry whereas in Ireland the farmer has still to depend upon the unscientific treatment which obtained many years ago There is every reason to believe that if time Irish flax grower received the same amount of encouragement from the government as the Belgian farmer a more satisfactory condition of things would in a short time prevail The situation meanwhile may be almost described as desperate t1 C vsuuuuI uuruu I FURNITURE cc- I jj THE IIf You Want Fair Treatment Gall OnCCEE- jj EtheridgeCC jj Furniture jj

what course the Commissioners I will adoptas to the appointment or other wise of a successor to Mr Price A special general meeting of the Inde pendent Club and Irish National League Sarsfield Branch was held on Sunday November 0 at the rooms in the Town Hall Matters of the very greatest importance were discussed The Earl of Lucan who has just been created a Knight of the Order of St Patrick by

Connaught Rangers Capt Smith Royal Dublin Fusiliers and Capt Hill Bart Royal Irish Fusiliers The Celtics of Dublin are making the necessary preliminary arrangements for their visit to Belfast Sunday sports are new things in Belfast and the idea seems to be favorablyreceived there in sporting circles in proof of which the Celtic Football Association Club have given over the grounds to the Red Branch Gaelic Club for the day It is highly gratifying to note tlut the Rocheford testimonialas far asKingstown is concerned to the family of a worthy Irishman is progressing satisfactorily The influential committee which has charge of it are doing all that is possible to insure its success for it is earnestly to be trusted that all sections of Nationalists will join heartily in its support Sunday evening there was a solemn office for the dead in the Church of St- D ary Drogheda and on Monday morn ing a solemn requiem high mass was also celebrated for all who suffered in Ireland in 98 and who need prayers The com memorative sermon was preached by Father Woods Rahan and the Drog heda Corporation attended in state and they were present at the mass on the following morning- It is rumored that another County Court judgeship is about to become va cant and already candidates in abund ance are mentioned for the post Those who are supposed to have the best chance e Mr Joseph H Moore and Mr Dan ariel Mahonytwo wellknown members of the bar Of those two the former iis first favorite in the betting probably because he is connected with the family of the Lord Chancellor Mr Quinn of Blackrock has issued very precise instructions to the assistants in his publichouse at the Rock ac cording to his evidence in the Kingstown Police Court the other day If a bibu louslyinclined customer but gives one twinkle of the eye refreshments are to be forthwith denied him This simplifies matters for the members of the force He confronts his man the eye twinkles and a conviction is at once assured Mr Patrick OBrien M P paid a visit to Limerick in connection with Mr John E Redmonds lecture for which he was making preparations and which was to be delivered last Wednes day Mr OBrien was accompanied by Mr John Mclnery Chairman of the JohnLimerickMcNamara and other prominent nation alists who formed a committee to carry out the necessary details in connection with the fixture The Dominicans of Holy Cross Sligo held a public meeting on Sunday November 13 for the purpose of raisin g funds toward paying the debt they have contracted in enlarging and improving their beautiful church The original Holy Cross abbey structure was built bone y of the Geraldines iu 1252 This was supplemented by another church iin which the fathers officiated for more than a century A little more than fifty years ago they built the handsome edifice which at present is undergoing improvements- A horrible murder was perpetrated at Ballydoole near Freshford County Kil kenny the victim being an old woman named Hanoria Neary widow Her house appears to have been entered inI the early morning by some one through I a hole in the thatched roof and her headl was battered in apparently with a ham mer in a shocking manner Richardl Neary her nephew who lives about a mile away has been arrested on suspic ion It is said that the murdered woman I who owned twentyeight acres of land was about to make a will which wouldI exclude the nephew from all benefits The Dalkey Commissioners at their last meeting received tenders tor the reconstruction of certain new sewers the cost ofwhich will amount to 2000 The board wisely and fairly enough decided not to open the tenders as it was con sidered that the subject matter of them had not been sufficiently drawn under the notice of those likely to become con tractors and it was determined to extend the advertising medium to other papers which have large circulation among threading e public and in the adoption of this course the board will secure the ape probation of the vast majority of the ratepayersThe has decided to undertake the erection of a fresh scheme of houses for the very poor in the city of Cork and it is to be hoped that profiting by the defects of previous schemes they will so build their houses and fix rents tb reach the very class for which these are in the first and only instance iin- tended I Under the new scheme eleven threestory houses oh the site of Harpers b Market are to be erected at an esti cost of 30000 The situation is central and this is a great advantage Many of the poor who at present live in the overcrowded slums should find in the new dwellings a safe and beautiful home But the corporation should see that these houses arc not occupied by clerks army pensioners and prosperous mechanics the class of tenant into whose possession other city dwellings have fallen and some of them will not even pay their rents It was not with this purpose these houses were erected and in the latest scheme adopted this difficulty should not prevailThere is no club in County Wicklow deserving of a wider and warmer support than the Bray 98 Club The manner in which the monster demonstration of last Wednesday night week was organized and worked was simply unique and the warm reception which Mr Egan and the other political prisoners received was worthy of the best traditions of the coun ty which produced the gallant outlaw ODwyer The good solid earnest work I which this club has been doing since its inauguration is highly commendable and its success is mainly to be attributed to such popular gentlemen as Messrs J K OReilly J J Grennan T J McCann and a host of others who are all good types of Irishmen who too are not everything by turns and nothing verye longand draw none of the ratepayers money Some time ago the Most Rev Dr DonII nelly Bishop of Canea propounded scheme for raising funds for the rebuilding of the new church at Bray a work of much architectural beauty The idea took in practice the form of so to speak a parish assessment and his lordship stated that if every parishioner guaran teed to subscribe a certain sum for a period of five years he would soon be en abled to pay off the amount entailed in the work In response to this some 151 persons sent in their names a number which compares favorably when taken in comparison with the list of ratepayers inI the town but still there are some important parishioners whose names are absent and it is hoped that these will soon show by their subscriptions their hearty approval of the good Bishops noble idea On Sunday Mr Francis OBrien who had been engaged as organist at St Saviors church Glentworth street for the past two years was the recipient of a handsomepresentation by the members of the choir previous to his departure for Dublin his native city where he has secured an important appointment The Mayor Alderman Cusack who isa member of the choir in presenting the sou venlra handsome gold lever watch suitably inscribed alluded in felicitous terms to Mr OBriens connection with St Saviors in Limerick and added that regret at his departure was only lessened by the pleasure of knowing that he had secured a more important engagement in Dublin The children of the Sodality attached to the church also took the occasion of adding a souvenir as a mark of their esteem Mr OBrien is a brother of Mr OBrien of Dublin The report read at the annual meeting of the Gaelic League last night gave a very satisfactory record of good work performed during the year says an Irish exchange of recent date The scope and the effectiveness of the association are gradually widening and the means recently adopted for the spreadingof knowledge of our beautiful ancient language are certain to bear excellent fruit in the future During the past year the growth of the movement has been far reaching beyond expectation Eighty seven new members of the central broach have been enrolled andover forty new branches have been established in different parts of the country all of them holding classes for the study of Irish Annual festivals on the same lines will tend to keep the work of the association prominently before the public The League has two flourishing journals printed in Gaelic it has established a course of lectures in the Irish tongue and it has been sending out traveling teachers and organizers through the country to stir up an interest in the mat ter In many other ways steps are being taken to further the movement and to bring about a real Gaelic renaissance The appeal which the Wolfe Tone Me morial Committee has issued to Irish Na tionalists for funds to carry on and com plete the great work which it has on hand will we are confident meet with a ready and generous response in Ireland and in lands beyond the sea where Irishmen have found a home says the Dublin Her ald It would indeed be a strange thing If the response to which we have referred were not willingly made As the appeal points out the celebration held in Dublin on August 15 on the occasion of the lay ing of the foundation stone of the Wolfe Tone memorial was one of the greatest outpourings of national feeling seen iin the Irish capital What did it mean It meant that among the overwhelming massI of the people the name and the fame of principles vered and honored Wolfe Tone was a great Irishman he was one of the most potent foes that English rule ever encountered in Ireland His work for his native land had striking effects effects which are felt even unto this day The demonstration of August 15 afforded am pIe proof of this statement Can it then be said that the funds necessary for the completion of the memorialwill not be anything fident that at an early date there will stand in the capital of Ireland a statue that will not alone be worthy of our unerringltod or afraid to speak of 08 CATHOLIC KNIGHTS Branch No4 held a largely attended meeting Tuesday night when arranges ments were completed for

Rev Father Morrelli pastor of St Philip Neris church in Newark N J Monsignor Leto iis here on a years leave of absence to obtain patents for some of his own inventions which he has had patented in several European countries One of the most ingenious of the inven tive priests devices is a voting machine intended to promote and secure the se crecyof the ballot The machine provides for a list of all the candidates methodically arranged with a press but ton attachment under each name The machine is operated automatically as a pressure of the button registers one vote for the candidate selected by the voter It has also a device which prevents more than one vote for any candidate by one man and Monsignor Leto says the method is absolutely protected from fraudulent operation Another merit claimed for the machine is that the votes are counted automatically as they are registeredso that when the polls are closed the result may be instantly known Another invention is an automatic elec tric apparatus for use on railroads Mon signor Vito Leto claims for this device that it will register distance accurately while trains are in motion and telegraph ically inform station agents of tile ape proach of trains and their distances dur ing fogs of sufficient density to obscure ordinary signals It also warns the en gineer of obstructions ahead on the track of the approach of tunnels and steepI grades and of the opening of drawbridges which he has to pass Its duplex placed in the stations will inform the agent of the exact conditions and dis tances regarding the trains in motion and willalso enable the station agent to communicate with the engineer of a moving train either by telegraph or telephone ANNIVERSARY OF ST JOHNS The thirtyeighth anniversary of tin dedication of St Johns
