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 Holiness Pope Leo III. caused the churches to be filled to overflowing, and many were unable to obtain admission.

Late dispatches from Iondon say con scription is impossible in Ireland. That is the severest crux in the military prob lem Great Britain must face when the war is ended, or perhaps before. By providing military training for Irishmen England would merely be arming against herself a race which admittedly produces the best fighting material her army pos sesses. Military authorities, apart from the war, are most concerned now in framing schemes of conscription, and all are brought to a dead stop by the startling fact of the almost universal Irish disaffection, the result of the denial of home rule. It is also noteworthy that Ulster, though more thickly populated, provided despite its large section of avowedly loyalist inhabitants a far smaller rela tive proportion of the soldiers for the British army than the other three The Ulster Orangemen who, as mem bers of the rifle clubs sanctioned by the Government for their special benefit, include a' considerable body of trained shots, have conspicuously refrained from volunteering for service in South Africa. It is gravely questioned whether "vol unteering" correctly describes the con ditions under which a considerable pro- portion of the special levies is now beintr raised for service in South Africa.

If the stone figure that Tom Dunbar dug up be indeed the mortal remains of Thomas Francis Meagher it is easy to figure out from its mute testimony the fate of the gallant General. He was plainly enzy when he jumped overboard, but the tjhock 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 all of whom at that time used gunpowder. The almost noiseless bowstring gave no hint of the shot that cleft his skull. The nerves of the brain work crosswise; those of the, left part control. Meagher's skull.was cleft.on.the left aide; his right side, as 'Dr.. Kellogg and Prof. Grant testify, was paralyzed. The Indians came and bound the helpless man'a hands. Death soon released him. Then, alarmed at the commotion made by the friends of the missing man, his captors threw the body into the river, where it layjuntil Dunbar found it if it is indeed Meagher's body. Thomas Francis Meagher in his fiery youth was engiged in Tipperary County, Ireland, in arraying the peasantry against the British authorities. He was arrested, tried and, condemned to be hanged, a decree, modified to transportation for life to Van Dieman's Land. After four years o( sufferings he escaped. He landed "in New York in May 1852. Here he was the popular idol, the corporation presenting him with a congratulatory address and entertaining him at the Astor House. He became a popular lecturer and writer, was admitted to the bar, made many eloquent speeches and established the Irish News. When the war broke out Meagher went to the front at the head of the famous Irish Brigade the Sixty-thirSixty-nint- h and Eighty-eigh- t New York regiments. It was the Irish Brigade that at Marye's Hill dashed itself again and again upon the fatal stone wall until s of its gallant members lay dead or wounded. Gen. Meagher's 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 disappeared from mortal' ken he was raising a regiment to fight Indians. He was drowned, as was always supposed, in June.1867. d, two-third- JERRY FORHAN, Born in County Kerry Ono Hundred and Ono Years Ago. KLEIDERER, 354 Fourth Avenue, Near Jefferson.
