South Trimble has been elected over Col. W. E. Thomp son to become the Democratic standard bearer for Representative of Franklin county in the next Legislature. Out of 2,100 votes polled the Hon. South Trimble secured over 1,400, making his majority over 700. He carried the city by seventy-on- e votes, which was a surprise to even the most sanguine Trimble men. The city had long been ceded to Thompson by nt least 100. Trimble carried every precinct in the county except one, even Col. Thompson's precinct. Mr. Trimble now has over eleven months to make his canvass and strengthen his fences so as to have victory perched upon his banner November 7, 1899. Mr. Trimble claims that he will get a capital appropriation bill through, but those who have watched his course in the Legislature are not so sanguine of the success of his efforts, if he ever makes any in that direction. However, he will receive the solid Democratic support in Franklin county, as he is the Democratic nominee. Division No. 1, A. O.

The Lartrei't Ever Held in Enst Cork Addressed by the Mayor. One of the largest and most representin ative National meetings ever held was witnessed last Sunday in East Cork Middleton, the object of the demonstration being to celebrate in a befitting manner the revered memories of the men of '98 and '07. Deputations with bands and banners attended from Cork, Youghal, Gattyvoe, Carrigtwohill and other centers in East Cork, the Cork National Foresters, in full regalia, being conspicuously represented. Mr. Martin to the J. Riordau, chairman, was moved chair, and among those present were the Mayor of Cork. Mr. F. H. Meade, Messrs. R. Cronin, J. C. Roynane, P. Shee-haCorcoran, Capt. Collins, Cork; J.

Power, resolutions calling on the Government for the amnesty of the political prisoners and asking the people of America to discountenance and subvert the designs of Englishmen for an alliance with the United States were unanimously adopted. Capt.

This has been suggested in an alternative proposal by Mr. Patrick White. Mr. Redmond, addressing the Redmond League on December G, in Dublin, claimed that Mr. Healy "has a separate organization, a separate cam paijjn 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. Mr. Dillon, in a letter published in the Dublin Freeman, declares that he never authorized Mr. Patrick White to submit an alternative proposal to Mr. Redmond or anyone else. He says: "I should like to know on what ground Mr. White made this statement to Mr. Redmond. I never held any communication with Mr. White in reference to his proposal. It did not come before me clothed with any1 Authority which would, in my judgment, have justified me in treating it as serious. Nor was I even aware that Mr. White was acting for Mr. Redmond in the matter. "It is not true to state that I object or have objected to Mr. Healy being repre sented at any conference that might be held. But I have not gathered from any of the correspondence, or of the statements which have been published, that Mr. Healy claims or desires to be repre- sented as the leader pf n separate party." It is much though, under all the circumstances, to have Mr,, Redmond express a hearty desire for reunion and admit that many of the. alleged causes of dissension no longer exist. He claims that the Nationalists have come over to the Parnellite policy of 'reunion on the basis of Irish independence of all English parties.

Anything to eliminate from political controversies in Ireland the incredible foolishness of such expressions as this, as excuses for continued difference: "But when the majority is wrong!" "Why don't they accept our platform, based on the only true principles?" This latter from a representative of a small minority. The power of perpetuating a free gov ernment inheres in the ability of parties and people to abide by majority decisions. Every Irishman who shows himself unable or unwilling to accept 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 indorsement of the Limerick resolution means that the party leaders who will not fall into line with the people's wish will be repudiated by the people.

Lord Ashbrook entertains a large party this week at Durrow Castle, Durrow, Queen's county, for the first shoot of his extensive coverts. Mr. William Field, M. P., was at the Roval Dublin Society presented with a handsome cheque in recognition of his services in connection with the Irish cat' tie trade. The Cork trades, who will be repre sentcd 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 session opens. This means a contest, probably in February next. A very attractive concert in aid of the very poor children was given in the Town Hall, Rathmines, Friday evening.

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, knocking him heavily to the ground. He was conveyed to Mercer's Hospital, where he was attended to by the resident surgeon, who found that his ami was injured. The injuiies, however, were not of such a nature as to detain him in hospital. On Thursday four families living in the main street of Loughrea were evicted from their homes by the Matquis of of rent. Clanricarde for The property on which the houses are 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 kiud at the eviction. An exhibition and sale of work, under the auspices of the Irish Industries Asso ciation, was opened at the Athentcuin by the Countess of Mayo. The Countess, who takes a deep interest in matters per taining to local industry and manufact ure, 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, Artisans' dwellings are 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 so scarce. It is hoped that Mr. Rossiter will not lose sight of his motion, even the through a technicality though scheme can not be put into operation till the end of next year. The preliminary work of looking for sites, etc., can be looked after in the meantime.
