by adopting tariff favorable t- British interests instead of one whichl exists for the advantage of interests that are only American Because a joint control of an American l canal is not promised to England the Mail says tnostsadly It would only be affectation of good feeling to refrain fro l expressing our surprise and disappointment I But dont imagine that you are going to be let down too easy after all the recent gush over Anglo Saxon unityconmbina lion against Latin races and joint ruler ship Jof the world with which some of your AngloAmerican papers have deluged us You are to be held to the terms of the bond The ClaytonBulwer treaty must be adhered to England Iis your friend when it costs her nothing but dont for a moment dream that she i going to abate one iota of her claims even in behalf oflithe kinship which she patronizingly professes This at least is the language of the Globe the organ of e military party We are told says lily paper in its issue of this afternoon no doubt that the Clayton Bulwer treaty has become practically obsolete and in the present friendly rela tions between Great Britain and tin United States its obligations will be allowed to lapse We venture to say that those who argue in this way will find themselves mistaken So far from having become obsolete the treaty is really of more importance than ever from the nonAmerican point of view now that the United States are becoming a first class naval power UNo British government cart admit the pretention which seems to be put forward by the President I What do you think of that lloving Ian guage from our 1kindred over here Imagine for instance any such words as these emctiating from a Russian Ger man or French paper speaking for the ruling classes of these nations What would be the reply of the proEnglish newspapers of New York to expressions so unfriendlyand menacing We know what would be writtenin any such in stance by these papers but it Is safe to predict that these organs of transatlantic AngloSaxonism will not resent but will1 probably indorse or reecho the insolent t pretentious of the London Globe The Pall Mall Gazette is equally strong upon Great Britains rights equally salt over Americas possible ingratitude and no less emphatic in insisting upon a dual control of any canal which Congress ma order to be built across Nicarauga Says the editor By the terms of the ton Bulwer treaty the two nations En laudJ and the United States stand on a precisely equal footing with respect to th pbntroi ofthe future canal Thefecttha the1do so will offer them a readmad

journal with the message about which it writes that it did not even mention it on its contents billa course which was also followed by the Westminster Gazette and the St James Gazette the three leading London evening papers and loudest advocates for the AngloAmerican alliance movement The Washington correspondent of the London Daily Chronicle who is the edi tor of the Washington Post is also keenly discouraged the silence of themes sage upon the question ofjEnglands services to the republic Listen to the proBritish sentimentsof this American editor The failure also to refer in more than a perfunctory way to the relations of the United States with England ignor ing Englands great services to this coun try maths early days of the war creaTes the impression that the President has already forgotten these services and is not so sincere in his friendship as was Imagined The meaning of aUjfthis to observers over here is that American opinion has been too strong for the proBritish faction in the conspiracy which was being hatched to make the United States the subservient instrument of English designs The voice of a section of time American press was declared by the press London to be the voice of the republic Trance Germany and Russia were told that this was so 1n spokenY1 pfaaqi1 all buta a cq1pI1 fact and Englapdfs rivals were warned that resistance to Great Britains plans in Egypt or policy in China by any continental power would find Uncle Sam at the side of John The residents message is not only silent on the subject of alliances but it seems to speak on the Nicaragua canal question ill terms which preclude the possibility of admitting the British claims under the clauses of the Clayton Bulwer compact This is an anti climax to the alliance humbug and Johns numerous rivals and enemies will have their gayety very much stimu toted on learning that difficulties are more likely to arise between him and Sam before this canal constructed than between your republic and all the world besidesEnglish hopes are stow centered strange to relate in the Senate It is believed that the great body which has hitherto been ridiculed or denounced by organs of British opinion as being owned by American trusts as time efuge of tgnorrant e tl1ilhlthuye itS 1spon ofeadjusteaco cordance with the open door interests of British traders Of course the sinister motive behind this hope will not be lost sight of by members of that body or by those of the House of Representatives It is too patent in his shameless selfish ofmkindred commercial aims Englandwants her example to be followed by your country because it will drag the republic down from the unique position she has held as a mighty demo cratic commonwealth founded and ruled on principles of equality to the level of an empire of class domination and of governing infamies such as are carried on today in Africa India andelsewhere under British rulers She knows you can not under your constitution admits the Philippines to the family of the United States in any dependent capacity She urges you therefore to violate the constitution in order to have you committed to the formation of such arbi trary government in the Philippines as England exercises in India where over 200000000 of socalled British subjects have not a single vote allowed them in the rule of their country or a solitary voice in the expenditure of the taxes which they pay She wants you to do this not for your sake but for hers She even urges her own perfidious example in Egypt and advises you to go back upon your declarations to the Cubans to the Philippines and to the world by annexing these islands instead of freeing them and insuring their liberty and independence The Senate of the United States will surely not respond to this siren invitation To do so wouldjbe to break forever with those great principles and traditions on which the republic has raised itself with out aggression to the formost position among nations Congress will it is to be hoped take warning from the tone of the English press on the Nicaragua canal question and will refuse to commit America to the policy of military despot ism which the retention of the Philip pines will inevitably involve at the request of a power which declares that ii- c itt must in obedience to the terms of nn obsolete treaty be allowed to exercise an equal control with the United States over an American waterway which is to be built by the American people at home CHRISTMAS TREE FOR CHILDREN pleasYdren during the past week was tha Logangt Wednesday

his noble example Demanding no toil to which he did not himself cheerfully submit pointing to no danger where he was not ready first to go he kept his undisciplined and suffering troops about him with a firmness that kindles both our admiration and our as tonishment He must have known iit was well nigh a hopeless task upon whichl he had entered and as his commanding t thetthickly driving snow there

about ascertaining that which would be most suitable as giftsl for its vast army of employes Finally after much careful consideration and I after many talks with the older and moreii experienced men in the firms employ iit was decided to break all records in the way of Christmas gifts and to make sad of the 250 employes who is over seventeen years of age a Christmas present of al 1000 paid up Nte

Influence Upon the Nations of of the World Discussed by Mgr County i he Irish Merged Into Many Nationalities but Never Lost t Love for Erin i ciThoProtests Against an Auglop American Alliance is INFLUENCE ON EDUCATION The Rt Rev Mgr Thomas J Conaty D rector of the Catholic University America lectured in Boston Theater under the patronage of the Charitable Irish Society on the evening of Sunday December 18 His subject was Irelands Influence Among the Nationsa schol arly discourse eloquently delivered and destined for more than local attention or its vigorous protest against an Anglo American Alliance Mgr Conaty was gracefully presented to by the Hon P A Collins The lecturer spoke first of the 98 movement whose centenary year is almost ended He continued Ireland has been fashioned by Gods Providence through bright days of glory and through dark vales of sorrow into avocation and a place in the history of mankind Few nations have been called to a greater influence upon the people among whom it has come into contact Poor downtrodden despised and calum niated for seven centuries she has never ailed to protest against her oppressors never allowed her love of country to I diminish never lost hope in ultimate freedom She has learned the language of her tyrants which was expected to be her destruction but instead though she has been driven forth by cruel legisla 1 ion from her home she iras entered largely into the English speaking world to be a powerful influence for the very things which her enemies despised her religion her language and her national Ideas Her influeuceewas not unlike that of be ran theGreeks7 The ewsfos I the enjoyment of their nationality but they became a worldwide influence They bore to the world the idea of Mono theism in the traditions ofa purer idea i of God and a nobler standard of life than the world knew The Greeks lost their 1 fatherland to the Romans but they gave adn J ideal influence in the philosophy which was scattered everywhere This was th I fine gold thread which was spun an I woven into all the literatures of the I worldLike Jew and Greek the Irish have e been the bearers to the world of an ideaee in religion and in literature They hve been in their exile as in their natoeJJ laud the standard bearers of Roman I Catholicism the unflinching asserters ofII the unity of the Church of Christ In i education they have borne the message of the spiritual and time imaginative which act as the very soul of poetry andee give life to literature The Irish mergedII into many nationalities but never lostcc love for Erin Their Ireland always re mains and while hold has been lost of its nationality hope has never been lost ofII regaining it llJgr Conaty in discussing the peculiar c strength of the religious influence of the Irish pointed to the complete manner iIncc which Christianity was accepted by the Irish who found in it satisfaction for aU their religious ambItions The spirituality I of their character under the In flu ence of Christianity broadened at once Iinto the highest moral Catholicism TheI ascetism of the Irish in the Middle AgesI manifested itself in the highest forms of virtue chastity purity detachment fromII earth and devotion to religion It wan perfect type of Catholicism unspotted by courts and undimmed by political greatnessIlIe spoke of the wonderful Irish mis thee old world Then of its work in th new Though the Church had contributed to the discovery and early colonization of this country though the new France t with all the traditions of the old France was planted near our doors though Lonl Baltimore laid the foundations of civ 1 and religious liberty in the statutes of the Maryland colony though Governor Don gon the son of an Irish Catholic first proclaimed religious liberty in New York yet the Catholic Church a hundred years ago was practically an alien barely rec ognized hardly tolerated In fact penali statutes existed againtt it Who will deny the influence of the Irish in the building up of the Church i into its present strength and beauty The Irish Catholics came in large num bers in the early days of this century and in their millions in the famine years and with them came their priests and iin time a native clergy grew around then anlinfluenceofiuteuse flinching loyalty to Roman CaUl licisl1- 1lTheywereaSPlritual t people

nglishspeaking races the Irish who have been driven by English misrule from their native land will be found to bring salvation through the maintenance their religious ideal The lecturer adverted also to the Celtic influence on education and literature Matthew Arnold Henry Morley and Stopfonl Brooke were quoted to show the IJlisbthew Arnold finds largely developed in Shakespeare is the contribution of the Celt to the great master of English but magic was the poetic and religious prin ple that moved for good that saw with the untainted eyes of children It was a spiritual sense which moved for good and after all this is the source of true poetry The influence of the Celtic found in the translations into English and in the Celtic thought expressed in English by the descendants of the Celt The difficulties under which the Catholic Celt labored during the centuries of English dominion made it difficult for Catholics to have done much in the interest of education but with the spirit oftt toleration in Ireland in the early days of this century the Irish Catholics have j risen out of the dust into which they have been ground to renew again the loves of of their ancestors for education and to take their place among the best in the educa of tional world of The Irish love for liberty and the Influence of the Irish through their devotion patriotic ideals brought out Mgr Con aty s best eloquence He said Oppression sanctified his ideas of freedom j and rather than be a slave he abandoned the land of his love He has an undying love for motherland and yet motherland was to him but the soil of his ancestors their hopes and sorrows for he had no state in which it was exemplified Hence it was in his heart and mind and everywhere he went be carried itenthusi astically with him He loved the newbland in which he found a home but hew also loved the old land whence he came His country to him was idealized It was his Tir Nan Oga land of perpetual youth in which are enshrined the highest ideals of holiness beauty and justice Time Irish easily assimilate but nowhere more than in America because here the ideals of country arc nearer to their hearts ideals The vastness of country satisfies his wandering nature the justness of law satisfies his oppressed heart the glory of the people its possi bilities fill Iris romantic soul and iits equality before the law thoroughly realize i his ideal of libertyti lie b thebrawacic sinew durance the morality of sturdy unflinching loyalty Mgr Conaty quoted from SenatorHoar in his address at the 250th anniversary of I Worcester But see what the Irishman I brings also asa dowry to this marriage which the centuries are to weld The Irish race is conspicuous among great races for great traits No people thatI iI highdamong are the capacity to produce great menI under the most adverse conditions the capacity for rapid elevation when the conditions are favorable courage soldierly qualities the gift of eloquence the power of severe and patient labor the passion for owning land a strong domes tic affection chastity deep religious feel ing Noble words from the best type of American public life The Irish have brought to time building of this nation their strength of character as a race which seven centuries of perse cution have not been able to weaken There is a virility which is peculiarly its1 own a reverence for home a devotion tall that men hold dear a bon hommie which is as the salt of life and these characteristics the Irishman brings wit him everywhere Their derpseated love of country encourages and strengthens patriotism Mgr Conaty then passed to a discus sion of the question of numbers as to theI Irish emigrants and spoke at length- upon their relation to the revolution an to their assimilation to American life Speaking on their faults he said they could all be traced to the influence of antiIrish legislation in Ireland to the des velopment to the iniquitous tax system which promoted improvidence and to the penal laws which developed illit eracy He said it was not necessary to go far fister descendants in America rebel against an alliance with England AngloSaxouism strictly speaking is but one of the many elements iu American nationality which needs mid appeal to tottering monarchies and should seek no alliance with royal thrones Let us be true to the ideals upon which our country bases its politicall life true to liberty and true to God G and country are two loves that have always been inseparably united in the Celtic heart and the children of the Celt should preserve these loves in

5When the issue of expansion and imperialism first came to the front it met with occasional sympathy and approval from labor organizations But this has entirely changed says T a writer in the Pittsburg Post Whenever labor now speaks on the subject and it does so whenever occasion presents there is no doubt 1what it meansthat is decided and unfaltering opposition to imperial acquisitions It has not taken labor long to reach the con clusion that the annexation of eight or ten millions of Malays means a i flood of cheap labor that must in the nature of things come into com petition with free labor In New York City all the asso ciated labor unions fraternizing with the Central Labor Union on Christ mas placed themselves on record in opposition to imperialism and expansion The vote was unanimous As against the policy of an alliance with Great Britain so much talked t of the Central Labor Union indorsed k n thepreservation of the wise and timeattested policy of George Washington of avoiding all entang ling alliances with European pow ers There is no reason to question the fact that labor organizations throughout the Union hold to the yiewof the New York organization a This is an immense popular power 3 eiready organized and informed that Uurimperialistsmustcounti n lacing It is not atone the question of cheap labor that moves the working men Associated with expansion to the Asiatic seas comes the neces sity of a great increase of the standing army to which Americans generally are in determined opposi tion The teachings of their lives are against it as well as all they have learned from history AND OAMBLINO IS DEAD And he jes laffed and well he may The present gambling law was never intended to suppress gambling but enable lawyers and others to fleece the gamblers

and re fuses or fails to ante up we ar furnished a spasm of law and order as was enacted in the past few days and gambling is deadthat is long enough to delude the public grat ify the spite freeze out the rival or force him into line then gradually but surely gambling revivesISo long as the parties who opened the St Leger were connected with the Newmarketin cahoot with the Turf Exchange employing Aaron Kohn as attorneythey- were frequently indicted and ar rested along with the others but never convicted never raided never closed up arket was closed and 1 I itf dperafefft despite I frowns and covert rents opened the St Leger in opposition to the Turf Exchange and selected another than Aaron Kohn for their attorney Within a single day they are indicted raided jailed with everyone caught on the premises their furniture seized and the place closed The majesty of the law must be upheld Now for the real animus of it all Never was law and its machinery used more brazenly Owing to the illness of Commonwealths Attorney Parsons Saturday Aaron Kohn chief attorney for the Turf Ex chage gamblers was acting as Com monwealths Attorney pro tern By virtue of the office he was the legal adviser of the grand jury which ordered the raid seizure and arrests If he did not advise them and allowed them to proceed ille gaily he failed infhis duty There fore as Commonwealths Attorney he is responsible for it On Monday morning Aaron Kohn appears in the Police Court as at torney for the arrested gamblers some of the Turf Exchange crowd having been bagged with the others and declares the grand jurys order for the raid seizure and ar rests to be irregular null and void and moved and urged the court to dismiss all parties restore all prop erty and even refund all fees col lected by court officials Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning Aaron Kohn was again Commonwealths Attorney and the grand jury ignores the action of the Police Court orders the seized property held as evidence and issues a writ requiring the Chief of Police to bring it to them and in dicts a few more gamblers On Tuesday afternoon Aaron Kohn as attorney for the gamblers confers with the Mayor Chief of Police and Board of Safety to have the prosecution stopped the property restored the poolrooms to closeWednesdaymorningAaronKoh plays the double role at one and the same time In the Circuit Court the agreement of the gam II A blers to close up on condition the indictments are dismissed etc is read signed by their attorneys Aaron Kohn one of them and then Aaron Kohu as Commonwealths Attorney pro tem on behalf of the State accepts the proposition and moves the dismissal of the cases etcand concluded the dual performance by indignantly de nouncingthe newspapers who had reflected upon his integrity He is right Anyone that dares reflect upon a lawyer who enjoys the especial privilege of acting as attor ney for prosecution and defense in a case at one and the same time and getting a fee from both ought to be indignantly denounced And yet there are people who honestly wonder why it is the law and courts are not respected iin this community Notice the different methods adopted by the city government in the matter of pending claims The corporations against whom the city had large claims were let down very easy concessions being made iin all cases To offset this according to daily paper reports the city

Inde pendent Nationalists to support the Home Rule Fund is one which does not need any words to commend it to any right thinking Irishman says a writer in the Dublin Herald No party can carryon a political battle without the sinews of war and there is no party English or Irish that better deserves to be supported than the Independent Parliamentary party They have in the face of tremendous odds stood by the policy bequeathed to them by the dead chief with the result that it is today admitted even by their opponents that it is only by that policy anything can be achieved for Ireland As in the past so in the future they will without faltering con tinue the battle for Independent National principles and it would be as unwise as ungrateful if those who profess themselves Independent Nationalists by withholding the necessary means rendered iit impossible for them to fight with effect LORD CREWE ON ROME RULE Addressing a Liberal meeting at Crewe Lord Crewe said his devotion to home rule was as strong as ever Nothing had occurred to cause him to waver in his conviction that it would be a safe and reasonable measure to grant Ireland a Parliament to control her own affairs lie had seen nothing in the country nor in his experience of Ireland to cause him to alter his opinion On the contrary the knowledge he had acquired had con firmed and strengthened his opinion and therefore he was a good home ruler at the present moment and he thought a home rule bill would be passed perhaps at no very distant date Ke was very anxious that the Liberal party should coiiie to understanding with the Irish members and be given a perfectly freehand until such time as they could see their way to carry a home rule bill into a home rule act Val Lester of Fifth and Green main tained his

Mr Redmond refuses them and Mr Healy evades them Mr Redmond as leader of the Parnell ites will not consider a conference with Mr Dillon and a representation of his adherents unless Mr Healy is recog nized as the leader of a third party and invited to come in that character with his backers This has been suggested in an alternative proposal by Mr Patrick White Mr Redmond addressing the Redmond League on tDecember 6 in Dublin claimed that Mr Healy has aL separate organization ai separate cam pain fund and a newspaper which is used not so much against us as against Mr Dillon Mr Healy on the contrary has always repudiated the charge of being the leader of a separate party but he certainly gives no sign of willingness to attend the proposed conference as an adherent of Mr Dillon n Mr

this truth injures as far as he can the cause of Irish home rule We believe that the bulk of the Irish people do grasp the great principles of free government and that the general in dorsement of the

branch of the Gaelic League is about to be started in Bray this weekThe annual meeting of the St Laurence Home was held Thurdsay the Lord Mayor of Dublin presiding Lord Ashbrook entertains a large party this week at Durrow Castle Durrow Queens county for the first shoot of his extensive coverts Mr William Field M P was at the Royal Dublin Society presented with a handsome cheque in recognition of his services in connection with the Irish cat tle trade The Cork trades who will be represented at the municipal elections by a large batch of candidates are holding meetings throughout the city and conducting a canvass amongst electors Mr Vesey Knox M P has written to the Nationalist Association of the city of Derry stating that family reasons will compel him to resign as soon as next ses sion opens This means a contest proba bly iti February next A very attractive concert in aid of the very poor children was given in the Town Hall Rathmines Friday evening Mr OBrien Butler kindly consented to sing his new song Donnail Dhuv and a number of wellknown artists contrib uted to the programme- In the Dublin Mansion House Thurs day an important conference of Inde pendent Nationalists was held the Lord Mayor presiding A subscription in aid of the Independent Home Rule Fund was opened and it was stated that the f total amount handed in or promised was l850The question of a Catholic University is being prominently discussed at public boards in the South and resolutions urg inK the Government to concede the legitimate demand of the Irish people have been adopted in many cases A gratifying feature of the discussion is that Protestants are supporting these resolutions and admitting tine justice of the Catholic claim The annual smoking concert by the members of the Shannon Rowing Club took place at the boathouse on Wednes day night and proved a very happy and genial function That it kept up the old tradition of this popular and timehonored club goes without saying and it must be admitted the members are deserving of all the credit that can be Sbestowed on them While Mr Edward Cummins of South King street Dublin was driving to his residence on a hackney car the horse fell opposite the Bank of Ireland knock jnghini heavily to the ground He was veyedto Mercers Hospital where he r was attended to by the resident surgeon who found that his arm was injured The injuries however were not of snchIo nature as to detain him in hospital On Thursday four families living in the main street of Lougbrea were evicted from their homes by the Marquis of Clanricarde for nonpayment of rent The property on which the housesare situated was until some short time ago disputed The moment it came into the hands of Lord Clanricarde he put the evictions in motion There was no dem onstration of any kind at the eviction An exhibition and sale of work under the auspices of the Irish Industries Association was opened at the Athen cum by the Countess of Mayo The Countess who takes a deep interest in matters pertaining to local industry and manufacture is Vice President of the association and made a very practical address prior to declaring the exhibition open The exhibits were numerous and generally of excellent design and workmanship c Artisans dwellingsare a boon to every town and therefore we hail with pleasure the introduction of a scheme to build them in Bray There is no town in which proper houses for the laboring man are IL so scarce It is hoped that Mr Rossiter will not lose sight of his motion even though through a technicality the j scheme can not be put into operation till the end of next year The preliminary work of looking for sites etc can be lookedafter in the meantime Stoker Lynch who was granted the Albert medal for conspicuous bravery on board the torpedo boat destroyer Thrasher on the occasion of the bursting of a steam pipe when he was terribly injured in rescuing a comrade was re moved from the Naval Hospital Ply mouth Saturday and placed on a cork stretcher for conveyance to his home at Monetra near Waterford Lynch was in charge of two nurses and his condi tion is still considered hopeless The nightwatch question and its con templated abolition in Lemerick on New Years Eve is becoming interesting allowingcgratuities to some of the older members iis a very humane one if it is feasible whichis doubtful However the intention is a praiseworthy one and it isle be hoped for the old mens sake that the local Government Board will look with favor on the request of the corporation a to grant them permission to make the- rllowancessin question Some little busybodies at Kingstown have for their own purpose discovered that Mr P P Hynes is not a National iist It is difficult to discover the line of argument says a correspondent True it is that Mr Hynes has a busiuessieatabt lUuiaent in the township andequally true that lie ttever failed to use his in fluence for the laboring class and it is implY amusing at the present juncture to discover that some years ago he went a jad in opposition to the gentleman Nationalist reco rdhuntainted rcularhai bn dmwn up and a Ut ia to be sent to every evicted1 iMtd bfKr FrancUTwny j1i iij n n Tenants League The circular incloses resolutions adopted November 12 and confirmed at Birr November 23 The object of the association is stated in the circular to be the reinstatement of evicted tenants at an early date by purchase if possible under the land acts and to sustain them and protect their interests until this is effected It is proposed to renew the fight against landgrabbing and to form cojqmittees on every estate where tenants have been evictedAt meeting of the Limerick corpo ration the Mayor presiding Mr John Clune proposed the followiugresolution- That the denial to Irish Catholics of an university in which they might give their sons the advantage of higher edu cation under conditions as fair to their faith as at present enjoyed by Irish Protestants in Trinity College is as ef fectual a means as the greatest enemy of this country could devise for her im poverishment and the destruction of her hopes of material prosperity and at the same time a gross offense to 3600000 of the population inasmuch as it tells them that because they are Catholics they have no right to equality with their fellow citizens It was passed unanimously- The condition and neglect of the roads of West Meath formed the subject of dis cussion at the Baronial Sessions at Mul lingar Lord Greville presiding Mr T M Reddy said he noticed that there was an enormous increase in the county cess and no corresponding benefit to the roads which were in a disgraceful condition Mr A E Joyce County Surveyor said he could not contradict such a state ment anti he had to withhold certificates of payment for the roads of half the barony Several contractors had been prosecuted and fines had been paid by them but this course seemed to have little effect and more would have to be prosecuted Also in the case of roads neglected by parties he found it difficult to get others to take them up Already there is evidence that the com lug elections for the Limerick Town Council will lead to a series of contests unparalled in the annals of municipal life or at least since the reformed corpor ation act was first passed For the eight wards of the city the working classes are to put forward candidatesfour to each wardleaving one vacancy to be com peted for by any other aspirant for muni cipal honors Mr John Daly will again seek the suffrages of the Irishtowu ward on the abor ticket On Thursday a meeting of the traders and others was held in the Chamber of Commerce when it was resolved to put forward twenty candidates in opposition to the others Ward meetings were held on Wednesday and Thursday nights by the supporters of the workers candidate at which Mr John Daly was the chief speaker and resolutions passed pledging support to the candidates already selected- A burning accident which occured at Wexford on Wednesday had a fatal ter mination During the week curiosity J lfainsreetiandwent to see it On Wednesday evening a glass case in which a natural curi osity was preserved by means of oil overturned and the oil taking fire the whole show was set in a blaze Fortunately the last group of admiring youngsters had just departed but a young Wexford lad named Leo who was acting as an assistant at the exhibition caught a large quantity of the burning oil on his clothes and ran out in the street screamingand enveloped in flames The boy was horribly burned and expired this morning in the County Wexford Infirmary The curiosities whichwere being exhibited were all burned to ashes and it was only with the greatest diffi culty the house itself was saved from the flames THEATRICALS The appearance of Webers Dainty Duchess Company at the Buckingham commencing tomorrow should be a big attraction for New Years week The Dainty Duchess Company has been pro nounced the worthiest accomplishment of Mr L Lawrence Weber to whom the entire burlesque and vaudeville stage has been so largely indebted for its success The consensus of opinion is unanimous in the declaration that the costumes and scenic embellishments of Webers Dainty Duchess are fully up to that mark of superiority for which Mr Weber is known The supporting company of high class artists is of admirable strength A happy feature of the Dainty Duchess Company is its feminine chorus and the typical beauty of the members The makeup of this organization comprises the best that money and experience could procure as is evident from the fol lowing names of artists who lend their talent to the success of the performance The celebrated mimic four the well known Burke brothers Kessler and Car rick Alleene and Lame Hayes and Bandy Earl and Wilson and Raymond DaintyDuchessistic laughing hit of the season One of the most magnificently staged melodramas ever seen in
