Dcnro11strattrindn New York The Academy of 11In slc Not Largo Enough to Hold the Crowd Senator Mason and Congress man Salter Greeted With Applause JUSTICE FITZGERALD SPEAKS FIRST One of the largest audiences that ever gathered in the Academy of Music in New York City cheered for the Doers Sunday night at the big antiBritish meeting held there under the auspices of the United Irish Socities It was an audience that crowded every corner of the big theater from the topmost gallery down to the enclosure where the orches tra usually sits and it would have been half as large again had there been any room tor the thousands who came late The Academy was decoratedwith Irish and American flags and on the platform were hundreds of men who have been identified in the past with antiBritish demonstrationThe object of the meeting was to express sympathy with the Boers and an elaborate resolution setting forth the fact was unanimously adopted but the meeting hadnt been in progress longI before it became apparent that I England was the sentiment that swayed it Denunciations of that country and of men most prominent in its affairs to day were applauded vigorously the meet lug showingits disapproval of everything English in most boisterous fashion Hoots and groans greeted the mention of the names of Joseph Chamberlain and Cecil Rhodes Our own Ambassadors at the Court of St James from Bayard to Choate came in for part of the general condemnation while at all references to Paul Kruger and the Doers the audience showed equall vigorI in aPPlaudingJus ii i K Atr HSfifAiV j s Court who was the ptesfdlngonlcet however had the audience well in hand and had little difficulty in restoring it to order when necessary In opening the meeting Justice Fitzgerald said uWe are here tonight to express our deep indignation at the unjustifiable war now being waged by the armies of Great Britain on the people of the Transvaal and to give utterance to our admiration at the gallant stand being made by the farmers of the South African republic in defense of their property their liberty and their lives The Colonial Secretary wofully miscalculated when he brought about the condition of affairs which con fronts England today Gatacre Methuen and Duller commanding forces larger than those led by Wellington have been severally met and defeated bythe Boers and if the reinforcements now expected including the yeomen the fox hunters and by permission of the Queen the Duke of Conuaught meet the same dose in the field the cup of Englands bitter ness will be fuller than ever before UThe great heart of the American peo pIe goes out tonight to the mens who at the end of the nineteenth century are fighting for the same principles as set our American colonies aflame in 1776 These red coats in the Transvaal are the Same soldiers and follow the same flag as those who marched against George Washington In our own War of th Revolution In those times there were Tories in the land and perhaps toda there are some British sympathizers around us But then you must understand that there are some who will barter all they have for a look of recognition from a coronet or the privilege of hang ing on the edge of the Prince of Wales a set We who have no love for the Brit lahand with reasonwant them t know that these men do not represent the sentiments of the people of the United States Tonight we extend a hand across the sea from the Republic of the West to the Boer republic in South Africa with the hope that they will soo drive the soldiers of Victoria from their soUr There was a great demostration when Congressman William Sulzer was introduced aa the next speaker He spoke for over an hour and from his address we extract the following- I am glad to be here tonight because- I take a deep interest in the lifeaud death struggle for liberty now going on in South Africa In a fight between lib erty and monarchy I want to see liberty win I am not ashamed to have it known that my sympathy Is with the heroic Boers in their resolute endeavor and de termined effort to maintain their homes II and their Independence against the piracy and the tyranny of the British Crown I want tOMe them win in thisI content because they are right and de UHIIffOI1Cj are defending their hunts and peltingi t1temptt1 j I shoeAbeof the world In my judgment ninetenths of the American people are It tiont slug yn KENTUCKY IR II AMERICAN JPRICEland in this matter and in sympathy with the South African patriots Mr Sulzcr theq went into a history of the South African troubles winding up this line with a quotation from Lowell wrougforeveri Africa Mr Sulzer declared that under the treaty of 1884 England gave up her last right to dictate to the South African Republic and speaking of the alleged grievances of English subjects in the Transvaal declared that they were not half as bad as the extortion which Ameri can miners in the Klondike were obliged to submit to at the hands of the Canadian GovernmentThe England is waging be went on is a criminal war for gold The Doers at all times were willing to Entland Rhodes and Chamberlain They wanted the land of the Boers because it contained gold and all the other incidental de mands were merelypretexts As soon as one was conceded another and a harder one was made The truth is and history will soon record it that England wanted the control of this country because it is the richest in gold in the world England has made gold the standard of value and wants to own the supply and regulate the output in order to contrql the commerce and dictate the destiny of the world Mr Sulzers eulogies of Paul Kruger and his sweeping condemnation of the war I and all Englishmen identified with it were received with violent demonstra tions of approval He sneered at Eng lish friendship for the United States and condemned Administration for trying to foster an alliance that is distasteful to the American people There is no doubt in the world he saidltllat there ia a secret understanding between the White House and Downing street It should not be so but I hereby make this charge publicly and in my position as a Repre sentative of the people Mr Sulzer wound up his speech by say ing that South Africa would be the tomb of the Boer Republic and the tomb of the opinlon another great power the United States of South Africa Senator Mason the next speaker re ceived a royal welcome He said lWe are all here tonight for one pur poseto send our sympathy across the waters to the heroic farmers of South Africa This is not a partisan meeting unless it is partisan to love our own institutions for what we fought forIn the years goneby the Boers are fghting for j owacid tiere denyiRl tfac 1by1lj to with the Doer republic how I the former had violated that and other treaties declaring Englands action a piece of impertinence only equaled by her attempt to steal the northern bound ary of our own country He also stated that th very man who tried to arrange things with Paul Kruger for the English admitted in June last that his country had no right to dictate to the Doers on the question of suffrage or anything else Seventy years ago President Monroe was not afraid to give the sympathy of one republic to another when he senthis message to the struggling Greeks We can not do better than follow this example today But they tell us that we shouldnt sympathize with the Doers be cause England was good to us in the Spanish war Well suppose she was We were not fighting tb rob a people of their homes but for suffering women and children and furthermore to help make a republic at the footstool of our own country and if she is npt sensible enough to keep her greedy hands off what doesnt belong to her why its lien own fault Public opinion is the con ccience of the world and now is the wareheard England dodged every effort to settle her trouble with the Boers She wanted ofearms She wanted war she went down toytell you right now that she got just what she went down there for The conclu sion was received with roars of applause men and women in the galleries and boxes waving aloft hats and handker

one body las been agitated for some past by quite a num ber among them some of the pioneers of the order They argued that a large saving of expenses would ensue and with the entire membership meeting as one body greater unity would prevail On the other hand it was urged that as the order was in a flourishidg condition with each division increasing in mem bership and financial resources there was no necessity for such a step and also that the County Board composed of officers from the five divisions the Ladles Auxiliary and the Knights would be able to do much more work than will be possible

great solemnity all the Catholic churches in this city last Sunday at midnight When the bells and whistles all over the city proclaimed that the new year had come to life in the sanctuaries of the different churches ap peared the celebrants to offer up the most solemn service in the Catholic church The fact that it is an unusual event and a special privilege accorded by his Holt ness Pope Leo III caused the churches to be filled to overflowing and many were unable to obtain admission Not only Catholic worshipers were in attend ance but many Protestants joined the throngs that assembled This unusual privilege was granted by Pope Leo in honor of the jubilee year or the holy year as it is called This was commemorated in Rome by the Pope opening the holy door in the basilica of St Peters which had been closed for seventyfive years This jubilee year occurs every twentyfive years but in 1850 and 1875 wars and strife were rend ing Italy and these ceremonies were omitted The holy door had been walled up since 1825 but just before Christmas the Popewiththree times causing it to move The bricks surrounding the door were dis tributed as souvenirs among the congre gation The door

the Christmas decora tions were still up and the white marble altar with its myraid of lights looked simply beautiful Solemn high mass was sung the celebrant being Father Pulinkx At St Charles Borromeos the interest was intensified by the fact that Father Tierney who is visiting his brother Thomas Tierney spoke to the people many of whom knew him before he had taken the orders At Sacred

custom to celebrate midnight mass on Christmas eve in commemoration the birth of Christ but there were a number of revel= ers on the streets at that hour who would take advantage of their inebriated condition to disturb the worshipers On account of this abuse the midnight mass was discontinued and the one last Sun day is the first in years At the church of St Francis of Rome in Clifton the services were equally as brilliant and impressive as those of the large congregations Miss Nellie Han non presided at the organ in her usual efficient way and the music and singing of the choir was

mensurate with efficient govern II ment But economy and low taxes can be made an evil instead of blessing and a tax rate which will not provide enough revenue to fur ish necessaries and an economy which deprives of sufficient facili ties and officials is a mistake that F govw ernment like everything else cheap is a false economy resulting in a dollar saved with innumerable dollars lost in the end and general dissatisfaction to the people It iis not in the smallness of the amount of cost but in wise expenditure that gives most for the money tha- is real economy and any system however cheap that does not give I the people protection and comfort is unwise and will prove unsatis factory The American people as- a rule willingly pay taxes provided they get a fair return in the way of ample protection good cud clean streets proper drainage light etc that enable them to live in peace comfort and safety Wise economy that they will appreciate must give them those things with out burdensome taxes but a close fisted economic system however low the tax which does not give k k appointing them those things will prove dis The effort of the City Councilto reduce the tax and abolish unneces sary expenditure rll meetwith- approvalI but the curtauingpuiust1 not be carried to theextent of crip pling the efficiency of the city gov ernment but rather a margin must be allowed for extension of facili ties The basis of comparison too is often misleading owing to differ ences of conditions and circum stances Louisville is different in r many respects from other cities R and what seems ample for them may prove wholly inadequate here Especially is this true in the mat ter of streets sewers police And fire departments Our city by rea son Of wide streets and large blocks covers a larger territory in propor tion to population and taxable wealth than any other in the coun try and naturally her expenditures for those items must be propor tionately larger Again Louis villes only chance for growth isi in the building up and occupancy of her suburbs and any system of government which retards that growth is a drawback and loss to the city asp a whole Several years ago a large area was forced into the city boundary and subjected to city taxes and since that time that area instead of developing has retrograded and values decreased until the purchase of suburban property and building has about A stopped The reason for this can be readily learned from any one n living in the suburbs The burden of city taxes without any of the benefits of city conveniences protection j or advantages and without i a there being in the city limits aside from the stJis an evil rather than a benefit since those localities be ing deprived of the authority to provide selfprotection are wholly unprotected from rovinevilI characters ibecause of lack of police to dangers of fire because of dis t besidestgeneral inconveniences usual in suburbs This must bet remedied or the saburbe will not improve the city will not grow tjw value of 1 taxable property will continue to J decrease and to remdy this will f cost money for needed police and t station houses firemen engines and water streets crossings and lights These needed additions can be had only by a saving in expendi tures that more can be obtained for the money or by increasing the re ceipts A proper system that will develop the suburbs ought by in creasigg taxable values to yield this additional cost without increasing the tax rate and the fact that iit has not done so demonstrates that we have not managed affairs wisely the chief fault being an effort to get along with too little expense due to the desire to gratify the pnb tic with a low tax rate rather than efficient and progressive city gov ernment The City Council should consid er this matter from a businessi det sire for low taxes and economy to lead them into the wrong cours- that can only result disastrously to the city and in condemnation by people Make thG taxes as low a possible of course allow expendi tures only for necessaries but no policy which means a curtailing o efficiency a reduction of the police or fire departments a discontinu ance of extending streets gas water light or keeping the sam clean and in repair will suit the people however low the tax rat may be Whatever the advocates of low taxes or political partisans may think or say about it the people hav no complaints to make about the efficiency or management of the poiice orfire UePartnients and the reeommebilatJbrisJof of Chief HaageV x aud Chief Hughes for increase of the forces and facilities of those de partments meet with popular ap proval Any reduction of the forces or curtailing of the facilities of those departments will be the more readily noted and most severely condemned Louisville needs more police and firemen rather than less in fact has never had enough for the prop er protection of life and property That has always been among her greatest needs Economy which leaves that need unsupplied will not satisfy the people who are will ing to pay the cost Let us have economy in all things and as Iowa tax rate as possible but none of that penny wise pound foolish policy and low taxes that extort money from the people and does riot give them the quid pro quo that they pay for Taxation and economy like other things must be guided by common sense and honestynot by fanaticismand demagogy We are not an anticorporation crank and deprecate the dema gogic clamor so commonly waged against them Corporations have their rights and should be protect ed iin their proper exercise But corporations sometimes impose on the public and when they do should be rebuked Iand required to do right The Water Company requires J prompt payment of water rates which is right it allows lib eral discounts for cash in advance which is just and a wise business method But the Water Company does not provide ample clerks orI facilities for the convenience andI comfort of its patrons who call to pay water bills Owing to this dereliction people who call to pay their water bills areccompelled to stand and wait for hours in the office until the Small force of clerks i

Frankforts Petty Officers Fully Exposed Barrel his Besmirched Him self and Deserves Im peachment WILL DEMAND SPEEDY TRIAL In the Democratic Senatorial caucus at Frankfort Monday night Senator Harrel of Logan County sprung a sensation told how he had been bribed by Col John H Whallen to remain out of the Demo cratic caucus and oppose Goebel and giving up two keys to a box in the vault of the Louisville Trust stated be had there received the money and it was in that vault Shortly afterward Harrel swore out a warrant in Frankfort charging Whallen with bribery The Couriei Journalwith flaming headlines exag gerated and misrepresented the incident to such an extent as to display fully its ani mus It statedthat Whallen had fled from Frankfort and was in hiding that officers were searching for him etc The facts so far as dcvelpped do not warrant the charge against Col Whallen but show that Harrel was willing to be bribedand brand the CourierJournals statements as to Whallens conduct as absolutely false It is also shown that the officials at Frankfort are pliant tools with an utter disregard for law as evi denced by their arbitrary conduct Col Whallen was in Frankfort on Monday and left for Louisville on the evening train as was well known there He knew nothing of Harrels charge and the warrant till told by newspaper re porters that a dispatch to that effect had been received Col Whallen at once telegraphed to the Commonwealths At torney at Frankfort inquiring about it saying he would come to Frankfort at once if wanted To this he received uc positive reply nor was any notice sent to officers here to arrest him He went to Fraukfort Tuesday morning and though about the city for some time meeting policemen and officials no one offered to arrest him He went to the Sheriffs office and surrendered Then the scheme to put him in jail was cleary exposed The law fixes the bond in such cases at 200 to 100 but a 10000 bond was de iresumabl under the impres sion that he could not furnish it prompt ly in Frankfort but it was given at once and Col Whallen released to appear in a Magistrates court next day Another piece of arbitrary officiousness of the Frankfort petty officers was balked by the good sense of Sheriff Bell Presi dent Loving and Superintendent Speed of the Louisville Trust Company were summoned Tuesday afternoon to appear at 5 oclock asjwitnesses in the case before the Franklin county grand jury The summons served too late for them to take the train and the Frankfort Sheriff tele graphed Sheriff Bell to arrest and bring those gentlemen to Frankfort He de ferred dojng so and the gentlemen went to Frankfort Wednesday morning When Col Whallcn appeared in conrt at Frankfort Wednesday his attorney moved the dismissal of the case on the ground that the offense Was charged to have occurred in Jefferson county and the Frankfort court had no jurisdiction This was overruled He then demanded a trial but the court held that as the grand jury was investigating the case the hearing must be postponed Col Whallen waived examination and the court released him on the bond given Tuesday which being now null andvoid Col Whallen walked out of court free to go where he pleased Messrs Loving and Speed with the vault box sealed and under guard of Frankfort officers went before the Franklin grand jury Thursday Up to Friday no indictment has been returned but if he is indicted Col Whallen will insist upon an immediate trial The indica tions however are that he will not get it The scheme is clearly to intimidate legislators and blind the people by such sensational charges and defer the trial till the political game is finished Harrel has besmirched himself Whallcn is virtually acquitted unless indicted and then he must be convicted

of India 20000000 people suffering the pangs of hunger the high caste scram bling with the pariahs for bread set out at a railroad station by a few kindhearted 11 passengers These are items gleaned I from cablegrams from Bombay to the press And yet sentimental preachers and sham patriots call on the motherly heart forsooth of Victoria to put an end to the wholesale destruction of her sons and of the honest farmers of South Africa Instead of ending the horrors of war she is supplying millions of dollars for the further purchase of ammunition and calling on the people for new recruits to take the places of their slaughtered brethren Instead of ameliorating the condition of the people of India she has taxed them so exorbitantly that India is pointed out by economists as having the worst system of government in the world Like in Ireland a drouth is dreaded as much as a pestilence Its rich mines fill the coffers of Englands royal beggars with glittering gold and precious stones either of which will reach quicker to the motherly heart of Victoria than the cries of the helpless starving cr the wails of those dying on African soil for patriotism or love of freedom A more vindictive

pittance was already niggardly enough but these money sharks saw a chance of getting something still cheaper and took advantage of it What can be thought of this cruel indifference to others whether they live or starve lead honest lives or become thieves forgers criminals That women fill the places of men in business would be censured by none but when they accept these positions at salaries far below those which men demand and get it amounts to nothing less than a crime Salaries have been cut in two for men simply by this having to compete with their sisters Strangely enough like a boomerang it reacts first I on woman herself in that she has smaller income for her household expenses and the tnaintanence of her children One of the countless evils resulting from this decrease in wages is the swelling of the ranks of hoboes vagrants and noaccount men of whom the country has more than its share Our sisters must consider their work as good as that of her brothers and remember the text of

Gallant Leader of the Irish Brigade Think They Recognize Him In tlio Stone Imago Bccently Found Marked Resemblance to Hero of Tlpporary and Maryos Heights LIFE STORY OF THE BRAYE SOLDIER There has just been brought to public notice in Butte Mont the petrified body of a man It has been identified by those who knew and loved the famous wit ora tor poet patriot and soldier of fortune as that of Gen Thomas Francis Meagher Scientific examination by a physician and a professor of anatomy has revealed that the body is that of a man a soldier whose stature bulk head and peculiari ties correspond to those of Gen Meagher The precise manner of Meaghers death in 1867 near the very spot where the petrification was found has never until now been explained If the silent testi mony of this form of stone is to be cred ited the hero of Tipperary and of the Irish Brigade perished miserably by an Indian arrow which cleft his skull Two years ago Tom Dunbar was trapping near Fort Banton Mont It was very low water on the Missouri and the shrinking flood permitted him to see much more of the bottom than usual Carefully examining every foot of the way for places to set his traps he saw halfburied in the sand under water what looked like a human body He hauled the body out with much difficultycast- In stone it weighs 3G5 poundswith his lariat breaking in the process the left ankle and great toe Then he reburied his find above high water carefully marking the spot Soons I kin git money to buy an outfit Ill start a show said the practical Dunbar to himself and to no one else did he say a word It took the trapper eighteen months to save money enough to buy a horse and wagon then he showed his curio to tourists at the Upper Geyser Basin Yel lowstone Park Then R A Fraser of Helena organized the Montana Petrified Man Company bought the stone figure from Dunbar and exhibited it through out Montana They planned to go East with New York as the goal Fraser is shrewdIn Dr Edwin S Kellogg and toanscerpt1fectly jected to the test demonstrating that the petrification had been a living man Bones brain and vital ogans were visi ble even the arrowhead which had pierced the brain of the man was revealed by the power of the ray The petrification measures five feet ten inches in height The face is cleanshaven with the exception of a mustache and the face and form are those ofa wellnigh perfect man from his bearing a soldier The hands were tied together with raw hideWhen the body reached Anaconda there came to the room where it was ex hibited an Irish miner in his working clothes The moment his eyes rested npon it he called it It Is the GeneralGod rest his soullI It is the General- What General asked Fraser Gen Meagher surely If that is not the hand of Thomas Francis Meagber may mine be withered and he pointed out a slight peculiarity of the hand which had escapedattention The news spread others came to see what they fully believed to be the body of the dead General Pathetic were the scenes that followed He was drowned twenty miles from Fort Benton said doubters No man living can say he was drowned or what became of him if this is not his body was the conclusive retortAnd that is true if you remember the thrilling story of the death of this remarkable man On the morning of June 29 1867 Meagher accepted an invitation from an old friend John T Doran the pilot of the steamer G A Thompson to dine with him on board the boat He was on the way to Benton to procure arms and equipmentHe illj had been very ill indeed at Sun river The General was reading when sud denly he closed the book and said excitedly to Doran Johnny they threat ened my life in that town As I passed I heard some men say There he goes Doran soothed himr for he knew there was not a man in the Territory who did not love Gen Meagher Are you armed Doran Meagher insisted See that your pistols are loaded l At 930 oclock Doran persuaded the General to retire He locked the door of the stateroom as well as he could the lock being defective and went to the lower deck A few moments later he heard a splash and cries of Man over boardDoran rushed to the rail as the en gipeer cried It was your friend John nyl Two agonizing cries were heard but the river was twelve feet deep with a current rushing five or six miles an hour and the voice was heard but an in start Doran ran ashore and went to the yardsbelowatnauner and lowered themselves into the water while ropes cud board were thrown out but in ytinj the body WM never teetu Pot r Msjr day auutoa jnra fined UM river via dragged Mid the shores and islands were searched but all to no put pose If the stone figure that Tom Dun bar dug up be indeedthe mortal remains of Thomas Francis Meagher it is easy to figure out from its lute testimony the fate of the gallant General He was plainly crazy when he jumped overboard but the tjliock of the water and the instinct of struggle brought back his reason and he succeeded in making the shore far below where he jumped in The river at that point was full of islands which swarmed with hostile Indians not edgunpowdcrlThe hint of the shot that cleft his skull The nerves of the brain work crosswise those of the left part control Meaghers skullwos cleftonthe left aide his right side asDr Kellogg and Prof Grant testify was paralyzed The In dians came and bound the helpless mana hands Death soon released him Then alarmed at the connection made by the friends of the missing man his captors threw the body into the river where it layjuntil Dunbar found itif it is indeed Meaghers body Thomas Francis leagher in his fiery youth was engiged iin Tipperary County Ireland in arraying the peasantry against the British authorities He was arrested tried and condemned to be transportatlon escapedl 1852 Here he was the popular idol the corporation presenting him with a con gratulatory address and entertaining him at the Astor House He became a popular lecturer andwriter was admitted to the bar made many eloquent speeches andestablished the Irish News When the war broke out Meagher went to the front at the head of the famous Irish Brigade the Sixtythird Sixtyninth and Eightyeight New York regiments It was the Irish Brigade that at Maryes Hill dashed itself again and again upon the fatal stone wall until laydeadGen Meaghers career as a soldier ended with his brilliant services in the Etowah district when President Johnson tendered him the Secretaryship of the Territory of Montana The absence from the Territory of Sidney Edgerton made Gen Meagher acting Govenor He held that position Until his sad death His thoughts did not turn readily to peaceful pursuits His mind warped by sufferings in prison and in exile his body weakened by hardships he became flighty and visionary When he disap peared from mortal ken he was raising a regiment to fight Indians He was drowned as was always supposed in June1867s POEM ON GEN BOBSt L i Unprized are thy sons till they learn to
