Kentucky Irish American. VOLUME I. NO. 25. LOUISVILLE: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1898. What was the story lie had to tell, and Father James O'Hara and Father John McDonnell before him? See the condition to which a large portion of his parish was reduced, depopulated to make room for the bullocks and for nothing else. In '14 they had in one village thirty-tw- o families. Now they had one herd. In another townland in '4i they had thirty-seve- n families. Now they had one herd. In a third townland in '44 they had forty-seve- n families. Now they had one herd. These statistics could be produced. Father John McDonnell baptized in the parish of Kesh in the year '44 172 chilto dren. Now there were only forty-si- x be baptized in the year. These were sad statistics. What were they assembled there for? To get back the people to their homes again, to get the land for the people. How was that to be done? - It was only to be done by united and determined action on the part of the people themselves. The priests would be with the people in that movement, but they would only be with them if everything was done over and above board. The people should act openly, unitedly, determinedly, if they would see the broad grass farms back again in the hands of the children who owned them. Surely this was work for which the people ought to make some little sacrifice. Were they prepared to do it? They had a noble-soule- d man at the bottom of this new agitation, William O'Brien, and if he was prepared to make the sacrifices, why should not the people make sacri-ces- ? But if they were to succeed everything should be done within the laws and the constitution. Mr. O'Brien was there to tell them the lines on which the work should be carried on, so he would not take any more of their time. He would only say again that if the people were to be planted in the soil, it could only be done by united and determined action. One thing the people should do, and that was to put an end to grabbing. Don't deal with the grabbers, but don't brake their bones. Let the people simply turn their heads away from them at the fair and the market. But don't break was really the the law. The persecutor and the enemy of the people. Let them work within the law and constitution, and with the help of God they would yet succeed in their noble object by the united efforts of priests and people. William O'Brien was accorded a warm welcome and delivered a powerful and convincing speech. The Mayor of Sligo, Mr, McHugh, John O'Dowd, J. J.

It goes still further and endeavors to inculcate in the minds of its wards the idea that in America at least the Irish people have become emancipated by their own forti tude, courage and perseverance, and that they are no longer to De lotinu cmeny the "hewers of wood and drawers of water;'1 but on the contrary that they stand in the foremost ranks of business nnil nrofessional life: and further that the immigrant girl who shall remain indus trious and true to herself may nope to obtain social rank equal to the most exalted, for the reason that the republic to which she has given her allegiance nas failed to lend its sympathy to those who have suffered from oppression, and will never fail to extend even to an exiie its good will and friendship.

No recent play has met with more popular fa'or than "Master and Man," and as this will be the first time it has ever been presented at popular prices the Temple should be crowded at every performance. The play is on the style of the "Silver King," and will give each member of the company a favorable opportunity, to y the talent they possess. The story is that of a hunchback who loves the village and when she marries another uses every means in his power to wreck their happiness. Her husband is accused of a crime, imprisoned, escapes and is dogged by the villain until the hunchback confesses and his innocence is proved. The situations are very strong, especially one iu the fourth act, where an angry mob attempts to throw the hunchback into a red-hfurnace. The comedy is great and plen-fu- l, there being four gootl comedy characters. It will be magnificently mounted, and as the cast has been augmented a fine production is assured. dis-plaschool-mistress, ot BUCKINGHAM Week Com.
