Father Miller, assisted by Fathers Bachmann and Father Deppen preached the sermon at mass on the church of St. Cecilia, and in the evening delivered a lecture on the feast of the saint of that name. The choir was under the direction of Miss Agnes Richter, and she was assisted by Misses Henrietta Bauer, Paula Rosen Margaret Everin and May Zinninger as sopranos; Misses Theresa Rosen, Constance Richter, Cecilia Recktenwald and Mrs. D. Schiller, contraltos; Messrs. A. Emmcttsberger, J. Gottbrath, II. Gaucher, tenots; Messrs. George Recktenwald and Wni. Lawler, bassos; Misses Henrietta Bauer, Paula Rosen, Theresa Rosen. Messrs. II.

St. Cecilia's church was erected during Ground was broken the years of '73-7- 4. in September, 1873, and the comer stone laid in November of the same year. The first mass was celebrated in the fall of 74. The church was built on what was then known as Slevin's park, east of the old Salt river road, now Twenty-sixt- h street, nearly opposite St. John's cemetery. The ground on which it stands was owned .by;ThomasSlevin,who.nt..oneJ time oflered it to the city to be used as a park, but as it was at that time surrounded by ponds the city didn't accept of it. A few years later the ground was given to the Right Rev. Bishop of this diocese, who had the church erected for the Carmelite Fathers, with the intention of converting it into a college. At the time the church was built there vere about thirty families living in the parish, while at the present time nearly 800 reside there. Of the original families the following are still living and are members of the parish: Pat Bannon, Dan Quill, Conrad Wentzell, John Ker-berMichael King, Peter Tevelin, Thos. Nohelly, John Richardson, W. II. Boyce, C. Schreiber, D. Pempsey, Tim Harring ton and C. W. Smith. The first director of the choir was Mrs. Hannah Smith, the first organist Miss Harris, From 1873 to 1875 the church was un der the direction of the Carmelite fathers, the first pastor being Father Feehan. was over the office in His lodging-roothe church. It was not until 1877, when Father Rock was sent as rector, that they had a pastor's residence. The parish was so scattered during Father "Rock's time that he rode horseback in making his parish calls. Ho owned a fine black horse that he called Pat, but the boys of the parish went him one better and called him "Pattie Rock." In 1879 the Passiouist fathers took charge, with Father Aloysius as rector, Father Ryau succeeded Father Aloysius and Father WcIIenry succeeded Father Ryan. In 1883 the secular fathers took charge. Father McConnell was the first to be rector. He was succeeded by the late Father Mackin, whose death in 1893 is still fresh in the memory of the parishioners. The present rector, Father Brady, has been in charge since 1893 There have been 1 ,C25 baptisms, about 200 marriages and 2G0 deaths registered since the establishment of the parish, The first person to be baptised was Cath erine Pearl Parsons, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Parsons. The first marriage to be solemnized was between Mary Kil leen and William McCue. The Sisters of Charity started school in the rooms under the church in 1877, which they still continue. When the church was built there were no streets made north of Main nor west of Nine' teeth. When attending uigut services the parishioners carried lanterns. Old residents well remember when two boys playing truant from school were drowned in a pond in the vicinity of the church. At present the church la surrounded by streets and line residences, an in iweniy five years. St. Cecilia's is the home of that popu iar Catholic society known as Mackin Council, which, like the church, has grown from forty members, who organized it 1n 1892 under Father Mackin, to about 300, its present membership. A number of improvements have been made in recent years, notably a fine pastoral residence and a new steel belfry. The old belfry, which was erected at the time the church was built, was a wooden one, and many a hard thump the wnter has bad against its sides when ringing the The twenty-fifth sub-deacoBona-venture. g, Manhattan Island that they have been used for one purpose only ever since it was settled by white people. But this Is true of the Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum, which extends from Fifth to Park avenue and from Fifty-firs- t to d street. When the Dutch controlled the lower end of the island no one paid any attention to the lands lyinc as far north as Fiftieth street. It was left to Indians, to wolves, to bears, to panthers. It was good hunting ground. In those days real estate speculation was an unknown thing. There was a deal more laud than any one wanted. A man with 3,000 was looked upon as richer than a man witli 000 is now. When the English took possession of Manhattan and the Duke of York be came the lord, he claimed possession of all unoccupied land on the island, and in this was included the site of the Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum and St. Patrick's Cathedral, together with nearly all the territory in that vicinity. When the Revolution ended the city of New York succeeded to the owner ship of all lands which the Duke of York had not disposeed of, and these were known as they are to this day, as the common land of the citv. Robert Lyburn bought the present site of St. Patrick's, but the site of the Roman Catholic Orphan Asylum was never sold by the city. The city later leased the property to the church authorities. At that time it was nothing but a great mass of forbidding rocks. When the asylum was built great jagged rocks had to be blasted away and a high hill cut down, and the big structure and the smooth turf succeeded them. But a part of the playground is artificial stone that is as smooth as the primeval rocks were rough. William II. Vauderliilt always resented the presence of the orpnsm asylum. So did other rich men having houses in the vicinity. Time and time again Mr. Van- derbilt tried to buy the orphan asylum. He offered sums which the church author ities frankly admitted were more than thepropertv was .worth. .. ,. , But they would not sell. . They held that there were many advantages iu having the asylum next the church. The Roman Catholic Orphan Asy'uni is the only institution of the kind in the city which does not receive the per capita of 8 a month from the municipal treasury. bout three years ago Archbishop Corrigan decided that the time had come when it would be wise to think of removing the asylum to the upper part of the city, where there was more room. The welfare of chjldren is always associated with the country. Of course, if the asylum were removed the old property would be sold. And then the question of title arose. There was no doubt that the asylum could retain the ground to the end of time, but it did not hold the land in fee simple. It could not give a purchaser a clear title, so that it was practically worthless as an asset. The church authorities went to the Board of Aldermen with an ordinance which was passed upon by the corpora' tion counsel, and which was practically a deed of sale, transferring the property outright to the asylum for 1. The ordi nance passed and was signed by Mayor Strong. Able lawyers said that this gave a per fectly clear and legal title. But the church authorities wanted no possible question. A bill was sent to the Legisla turein 1890, so framed that it gave the asylum power to dispose of the property as it saw fit, and made the title absolutely valid. This became a law. isow me property can De sold witli a clear title, and therefore can command its normal value. How much this is is a matter of opinion. There are thirty' four lots m one block and thirty-tw- o in the other. It has been said that the property is worth 3,500,000, but experts say that this is a low estimate, and that it will bring nearer 5,000,000. The Fifth auenue block is the most valuable resi dence property in New York.

Within the past week the County of Gal-wa- y has been taking action in all directions, says the Dublin Weekly Freeman: In Gal way borough a provisional com mittee, composed of the most influential men of both sections, has been formed under the Presidency of Very Rev. Canon Dooley, and a monster meeting was held on Sunday, at which Mr. Harrington, M. P.j Mr. John Fitzgibbon, of Castle-reand Mr. William O'Brien attended. Steps have also been taken to start a branch at Oughterard, where Rev. Father McDouagh and Mr. John Joyce, an influ ential Parnellite leader, have expressed their sympathy. In Leenaue a branch was established at an enthusiastic meeting under the Presidency of Father Wal- dron. In Ballygar there was a remarkable demonstration, attended by Mr. John Roche, M. P., and Mr. James Lynam, his Parnellite opponent for East Galway at the general election. A powerful branch of the United Irish League was formed. In Monivea a branch was established on Sunday, and prepartions were made for a monster demonstration at on the first Sunday in December. In the neighborhood of Loughrea also men who have been estranged for years are joining heartily iu the prepa rations for a great public meeting at a few miles from Loughrea, on the last Sunday in November. Every where there are signs of activity, and of as ever among as cordial a, Abbey-knockmCar-raban- e, 'Nationalists-of-ftlhsection- In Roscommon Mr. John Fitzgibbon is exerting himself for the extension of the league. The Castlerea branch was formally constituted on Sunday; the Tulsk branch is also in full working order, and the League is extending in all directions around Elphiu, where the excitement caused by the taking of Miss Conroy's evicted farm by a policeman continues unabated. County Sligo has taken to the move ment with characteristic energyand unau- minity. On Sunday there were two great public demonstrationsiu opposite parts of the country. That at Cliffoney, on the borders of Leitrim, was addressed by Messrs. P. A. McIIugh, M. P.; Henry Brennau, M. Milmoe, J. J. Keenan and others. At Ballisodare an immense gathering was addressed by Messrs. John O'Dowd, JJ. McLaughlin, J. Gihnartin and others. In Dremore West, where the people are mostly rarnellite, a monster meeting was held on Sunday, November 20, and was attended by Mr. McHugh, M. P.; Mr. Collery, M. P., and Mr. Milmoe, whose speeches declaring that Parnell's followers ought to be the first to couie forward and cement union by starting branches of the United Irish League, created a profound impression among the Parnellites of Tireragh. Preparations are also in progress for a great public meeting at Bunniuadden, and for the establishment of branches in the parishes of Grange and Knockarea. In Mayo the organization has now cov ered almost every parish in West, North, and South Mayo. Within the past two weeks Messrs. Conor O'Kelly and John O'Donuell have held a series of meetings for the establishment of branches at Mayo Abbey, Balla, Ballindiue, Logboy, Aughamore and other districts of South Mayo, and have met with the warmest encouragement from the clergy and from both sections of Nationalists.

Irish Catholics, on the contrary, are determined to keep their demandisteadily and persistently before the eyesof the country. Mr. Balfour and Lord Cadogan have admitted its justice; why, then, delay the settlement of a question on which the hearts of the Catholics of Ireland are set? asked the Dublin Herald irt a late issue. Mr. Balfour can not plead that any difficulties are being thrown in his way. He laid down at one time certain conditions be fore he could approach the consideration on the subject. These conditions liave been accepted by the trish Bishops. Why, therefore, does Mr. Halfour dallyf Is it afraid of the Orangemen he is?

Thev want also to delav on the ouestion of the financial relations between Eng land and Ireland; but even supporters of their own are becoming sick and weary of this policy of putting things on the long finger. That this is so may be gathered from a remarkable address delivered by a Unionist Peer, Lord Emly, when speaking at the inaugural meeting of the Limerick Catholic Institute. Here is a quotation froni this very important address: I say it advisedly1; were tomorrow an other Hoche to anchor his fleet off Bere island he would be" .welcomed as even Hoche himself w'ouldyiot have been wel comed. lIcftvoftetfTOve we not held out' the olive branch to England?

That bitterest of all bitter thoughts is the thought of what might have been as England sowed the storm so would she reap the whirlwind. The hour was fast approaching, was even at hand; the people she had scourged would scourge her." English statesmen would do well to ponder on this address and also on the remarkable letter of Lord Castletown on the financial relations question, in which motto he referred to the "Unite-or-Die- " of the Volunteers. high-spirite- Benefactor and Friend of Many Struggling Boys and Girls. gant Prizes.

A cabinetmaker named John McUon nell, of 34 Stafford street, Dublin, was treated at Jervis street Hospital for severe burns about the head and body. It appeared that he fell asleep while sitting near the Arc and fell across it. "The Ideal of the Men of 'OS" is the title of a lecture which was delivered by Mr. E. II. liurke under the auspices of the Bray '98 Club. This club has per- formed splendid work for the National cause, and the lecture was bound to be well supported. On Sutulay evening the many friends of Mr. O'Neill entertained him to a sup per at Kingstown prior to his departure for South Africa. There was a large attendance, and a choice selection of music and recitation brought to a conclu sion a most happy and well thought out event. Not for the past thirty years was the fishing industry in Passage and Dunmore so brisk as it has been for the past few weeks. Large quantities of herrings are arriving at Waterford daily for sale and the disposal of them at a price satisfactory to fishermen depends on the amount of opposition there is among the buyers, who are principally exporters. At the last monthly meeting of the Bray Commissioners Holohan Mr. brought under the notice of the board the fact that an ambulance wagon was badly needed in Bray. Everyone who knows the township will cordially agree with Mr. Holohau's views, and in drawing attention to this subject is simply making known a want that should have been crippled years ago. On Tuesday evening a grand, fashionable vocal and instrumental concert was given in the court-housThurles, under the patronage of his Grace the Archbishop of Cashel and Emly and the local clergy to raise funds for parochial purposes. Well known amateurs from Dublin, Kilkenny, Clomuel aiid Castle-conue- ll lent their services, and provided a rare treat for the large and respectable audience who had the good fortune of obtaining seats. Mr. Edmond Johnson intends to exhibit at the Paris Exhibition of 1900 a reproduction of the crozier which was made by an Irish goldsmith of the twelfth century, and which some years ago was found during some restorations at Castle. The crozier bears the following inscription in the Irish characters: "A prayer for Nial, son of Mac Aeducain, for whom was made this ornament." "A prayer of Nectain, who made this ornament." On Monday evening, November 21, Mr. J. E. Redmond lectured at the Assembly Rooms, and was the recipient of a very enthusiastic welcome. It is over twelve months since the Indepentment leader appeared publicly in Cork, and though he only came in the guise of a lecturer he was none the less cordially received. "Irish popular leaders, from Swift to Parnell," was the title of the lecture, and treated by Mr. Redmond, the subject becomes fascinating. Sunday, Novembir 20, was Decoration day in Cork, and it was unnecessary to do more than simply remind Nationalists of the duty they owed to the patriot dead, whose memory they commemorated by the decoration of graves that are very numerous, and, unhappily, increase year by year in Cork and neighborhood. Many of the Old Guard have gone, but they are not forgotten. The fact that there has been numerous demonstrations this year did not in any way detract from the importance and enthusiasm of the celebration on Decoration day. The monument inaugurated by the Billy Byrne (Dublin) Branch of the '98 Centenary Committee for the erection of a monument in Wicklow town to the memory of the leaders of the insurrection in that county is rapidly taking practical shape. An influential committee has been formed. The Market square, Wicklow, has been selected as the site of the principal memorial, although slabs and other mementoes will eventually mark many of the historic spots made fauious by the glorious struggles of Byrne and Holt, of Dwyer and McAllister, of Thomas and Hartman, and many others against English oppression a hundred years ago. Strangers in Dublin are often astonished to find that the handsomest houses are situated in a comparatively unfajh-ionabl- e district, north of the Liffey, and that the "smart" quarter of the town is damp and depressing, as well s somewhat inferior from an architectural point of view. The ebbing away of fashion from the north side, where all the nobility resided in the last century, and well into the present one, is, indeed, rather haid to explain, especially as the neigborhood of the Park should have acted as a social magnet to some extent. In no quarter of town might the desertion of the beautiful old houses excite to much surprise as in Henrietta street. The Munster egg merchants have taken prompt steps to vindicate their position and to meet the serious charges made against the Irish egg trade in Liverpool and other English cities. The meeting held at the Limerick Junction clearly went to show that, as far as this province is concerned, these charges were exaggerated, if not entirely untrue. The Munster merchants deny emphatically that there are grounds for the strictures passed on their packing and packages. If the trade had suffered in any part of England it was due to the merchants on the other side, who sometimes held oyer eggs for a rising market.
