Kentucky Irish American. VOLUME II. NO. 2. Mr, John Doyle next delivered an address, in whibh he dwelt upon the high esteem in which Monsignor Bouchet was held by the members bf the congregation, in demonstration of which he presented the reverend gentleman with a purse containing $650. Speeches were also made by the priests present and several songs sung. The evening celebration was concluded with the rendition of "Sly' Old Kentucky Home" by the choir, and thus ended an event that will be memorable in the history of the Cathedral. Monsignor Michael Bouchet was born near Clermont, France, and is now in his seventy-second year. He made his preparatory studies in his native country, coming to the United States in 1853, the year in which he was ordained. He came direct to Louisville, and was first stationed at St. Vincent's, Union county, his parish at that time embracing a part There were but of Southern Illinois. few priests in Kentucky in those days, but nevertheless there were' many stations where they said mass. From St. Vincent's he went to St. Gregory's, Nelson county, and thence to this city, being stationed at the Cathedral as assistant in 1801. He was made Vicar General of the diocese, in the spring of 1871, and succeeded the late Father Dunn as pastor of the Cathedral in 1877, the latter having been made President of St. Joseph's College, Bardstown. Monsignor Bouchet is an incessant thinker. His mind grasps mechanics, philosophy, theology, history and the natural sciences, as is well known to many of the- leading mechanists of the city and State. He has also been the ecclesiastical superior of Nazareth since 1878, and is the administrator of the financial affairs of the Louisville diocese. In recognition of Ins general utility to the cause of religion ,in the diocese he was recently made a lonsignor by the Pope. His new title gives him no new power or rights, for as' Vicar General he is second only to the Bishop and superior td every other ecclesiastic in the diocese. He is universally v; known as gentle, peace loving and kihdhearted, and enjoys the respect and confidence of the entire public as well as his congregation. LOUISVILLE: SATURDAY, JANUARY 14, 1S99.

CANDIDATES FOR THE VACANT PLACE WORTHILY BESTOWED One of the most brilliant as well as impressive ceremonies ever witnessed in Louisville occurred at the Cathedral of the Assumption on Wednesday last, when Vicar General Bouchet was invested with the purple and the title of Consignor. The vast edifice was thronged with a brilliant assemblage of people from nil parts of the diocese, who were present to do honor to the reverend gentleman in his new dignity. The ceremonies began at 9 o'clock, with a procession of church dignitaries, acolytes bearing headed by forty-fiv- e lighted candles, which proceeded from the Cathedral rectory to the street and thence through the main aisle to the sanctuary, nearly one hundred priests Upon arriving at the participating. Vicar General Bouchet took up sanctuary his position in front of the Bishop's throne. He was attired in his purple cassock with a red cincture, and wore a purple beretta on his head. Owing to the illness of Right Rev. Bishop the ceremony of Investiture was performed by the Right Rev. Abbot Obrecht, of Gethsemane Abbey. When the Right Rev. Ablwt ascended the throne in front of the Vicar General, the clergy and acolytes forming n circle around them, Rev. Father Schuhmann, who officiated as master of ceremonies, read the Pope's letter appointing Father Bouchet a member of his own household, a dignity that is conferred in the appointment of a Monsignor, After the reading of the letter the Abbot blessed the purple manteletta and presented it to Monsignor Last Sunday morning, as day was breaking, a just and and all powerful God called to his reward Col. Ed F. McGrath. Just as the pale, mellow tint of the Sabbath morn slowly illuminated the sky the soul of d man winged its way the heavenward. For months he was prostrated with the dread disease that caused his death. Col. McGrath was probably one of the n men in Kentucky today. For years he was a guard at the Kentucky Penitentiary until the Republicans took control, when he resigned. When the Democrats took charge he was elected Deputy Warden, which place he held at the time of his death. He was greatly loved by every convict black and white in the prison. Though of rough exterior, a kinder-herte- d man never lived. Col. McGrath, as his name indicates, was an Irishman and a Catholic, and died fortified with the last sacraments of the church, administered by Father T. S. Major, of this city.

The executive of the League has been aggressive in its plans, tireless in its efforts and sound in its' judgment. It has vigorously attacked spurious doctrines, but in contrast to thejpracticcs of others in this direction it has substituted sound doctrines and pointed out the way in which they can be put in effect. The League, which numbered about forty branches at the beginning of the year, comprises about eighty at its close. The bequest of tilt! late Patrick Mul-liof New York, tbjthe movement has become available forttse during the year, and through this source the League will now have a permanent income in addition to its own resources. In America, too, the progress of the movement hasbeen equally marked.

Several new societies have also spfung up here during the year, and duringthe closing days of 'OS Canada showed unmistakable signs of falling into line. Altogether the year of 1898 will be as memorable in Gaellcfannals as 1708 is in Irish history generally. n, JOLLY TIMES. The Irish American Will Hold Its Reunion Next Thursday Night. .

Father Hayes, of Bowling Green, who took for his subject the duties and dignity of the priesthood, during which he paid a high tribute to the truly Christian character of Father Bouchet. The music and singing was perhaps the finest ever heard in the Cathedral, the regular choir being augmented by picked vocalists from the leading choirs of the city. Upon the conclusion of the mass the clergy were invited to the Cathedral rectory, where an elaborate banquet was spread. The menue cards were handsomely gotten up, and contained pictures of Father Bouchet and a sketch of his life. The banquet was under the supervision of Mrs. Charles Smith and the Indies of the congregation, who left nothing undone to make the feast an enjoyable one. Before leaving the banquet table Rev. Father Rock, on behalf of the clergy of the diocese of Louisville, read an address congratulating Monsignor Bouchet and extolling his many good qualities. Father Rock was followed by Father Raffo, who arose and presented Father Bouchet with n check for $1 ,000. This present was made by the priests of the diocese. In the evening .Monsignor Bouchet was the recipient of a reception at St. Francis Hall from the members of the Cathedral Mr. James and other congregations. O'Connor presided over the assembly, making a brief address describing the occasion celebrated. This was followed by the rendition by the choir of an ode written for the. occasion by Mr. Thomas n attorney, the P. Walsh, the words being set to music by Praf. Chase, as follows: Right Rev.

There have been given during the past winter month a number of smokers and soreceptions by various cieties, and it will be the endeavor of the gentlemen having this one in charge to surpass all previous ones. The State and county officers have been invited to be present, and it is expected that each of the local divisions will be well represented. The programme will include musical and literary exercises and several addresses by good orators, which will be interspersed with refreshments in abundance. The latter will embrace all kinds. The committee having the affair in charge consists of Messrs. Thomas Kee-naThomas Cody, John J.

This division will some time next spring celebrate the silver jubilee of the organization of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in Louisville on a large scale.

TELEGRAPHING Post-offic- IRISH. ST. PATRICK'S DAY. County Board Appoints Committees to Arrange for Its Celebration. The County Board of the Ancient Order of Hibernians met Monday night in their hall, on Market street, and transacted considerable routine business.. The most important matter to come before the board, and one in which our readers are interested, was that relating to the celebration of St. Patrick's day. This has been in the hands of the Vice Presidents of the different divisions for some time, who reported in favor of a musical and literary entertainment, to be followed with a hop. After adding several enthusiastic workers to the original committee, they were authorized to make all the arrangements for a fitting celebration of the event. The work will be divided between the members, who will report the progress made to their respective divisions. The following gentlemen will with the Vice Presidents: John Mulloy, J. Charles Obst, N. J. Sheridan, Thomas Kelly and William McCarthy; From dawn until dusk and the shadows of sunset You've zealously toiled in Christ's vineyard for years, Aad now in the calm of life's beautiful twilight The seed you have sown in the harvest appears.

Everything has been arranged for one of the liveliest parties of the season, end, 11 The progress of the Gaelic movement has been such during the past year that it is unnecessary to go into detail to describe it. It will be sufficient to briefly mention a few facts. The year commenced with the starting of a weekly newspaper devoted to the movement," half of which is printed in Gaelic. The second annual "Oireachtas" held in May was a great success, and the "Feis Ceoil" held in Belfast partook more of a Gaelic and national character than the year previous. Through the instrumentality of the "Shan van Vocht" a local "Feis" was organized at Macroon, County Cork, for the purpose of bringing the daily lives and homes of the people under the influence of the movement, which was an entire success, and which was followed by similar local festivals in various parts of the country. The movement developed unexpected strength in the County of Monaghan, where the g district of Tarney was thoroughly organized. g terriThe exclusively tory of the Arran Islands was organized 6y Mr. Thos.

It was decided by the promoters that the occasion should be taken advantage of for encouraging the revival of the Irish language. An Irish language congress was held, and numerous Jspeeches were delivered in the ancient tongue of the Gael. These addresses were reported the next day in the Freeman's Journal in Gaelic characters, and how this was done is noteworthy. The Irish Telegraph Department, recognizing the Gaelic nature of the festival, sent down to Letterkenny a Wheat-ston- e staff of nine men, under Mr. Donnelly, of Belfast, with two instruments, g operator, Mr. and an Halpin, a Clare man, was included, to deal with the Gaelic. A Gaelic telegraphist was also put at the receiver iu Dublin, and the Letterkenny staff, when dealing with the first section of the work in Irish, not knowing of the special arrangements at the General made inquiry if the words were accurately received, and were rather surprised to receive a satisfactory answer in Gaelic across the wire. The work was sent rapidly and accurately, and the Irisli telegraphists engaged in it are to be complimeuted on the capacity they displayed to meet the emergency.

CONFESSED ROBBERY OF IRELAND A demonstration remarkable for the unanimity and the enthusiasm of its pro ceedings was held under the auspices of the United Irish League at Monivea, about five miles from Athenry. Nationalists of different parties, who have been es tranged by unhappy sectional differences during recent years, were present, and the spectator from outside could not fail to be struck with the genuine enthusiasm and national spirit which thrives among the rank and file of the people, and which if it animated a movement extending over the whole country would sweep it on inevitably to a great national victory. Mr. William O'Brien, who was the principal speaker, was received with prolonged cheering and waving of hats. He said: Men of Galway, I am not much surprised at anything as to the progress and the success of this United Irish League, but I confess I am surprised, and most agreeably surprised, at the size, the extent and the enthusiasm of this gathering in this depopulated district. Within another month or two we will have a regiment of united men encamped in every parish of Galway and of Connaught. From proofs that I get every day of the power of this League, and of how it is dreaded by every enemy of our people, I do not hesitate to say here deliberately that if the other provinces were only as well organized as Connaught is at the present moment the Irish cause would be as strong, the power of the people would be as dreaded, as united and supreme as ever it was iu the days when the Land League was at the zenith of its fame. In this province we have solved the difficulty which apparently paralyzes the energies of Munster and of Ulster and of Leinster. Without bothering our heads about Parliamentary quarrels, we have, by the mere grit and determination of the people, built up an organization of the people, built up an organization as united, for all practical figthing do if tlioco rarhamentiiT)? nig 1 sensions hart never Deen nearu 01 wesi And, as invariably Shannon. of the happens when the country's blood is up in the thick of the battle against alien landlordism and alien rule, we have all genuine Nationalists, Parnellite and priests and people welded soldiers together once more, and the people have a power at their backs against which all the influences of landlords and graziers and grabbers, and all the foul play of Dublin Castle are as helpless as the raging Atlantic billows are against the iron headlands of Connemara. Judge Gibson, indeed, tells us the law will be too strong for us. I deny that. It's the people that have always proved too strong for the law, and have beaten bad laws down, and wiped them out of the statue books. Every Irish struggle of this century proves what I say. It's the law that has gone down every time, and been condemned and set aside, even by an English Parliament. The law will be too strong for us will it? That is exactly what O'Connell was told at the time of the Clare election. But he defied the law, and knoeked the law into a cocked hat and emancipated the Catholics of Ireland. It's the law that has always been in the wrong in Ireland, and that has always been in the long run vanquished the moment a united people meant business. When the Land League began there were Judge Gibsons to tell us that the law would be too strong for us, but before a year was over the land act of '81 was passed, and the law which made tile landlords of Ireland as absolute masters of their tenants as the slave owners were of the Southern niggers was abolished and relegated to the museum of historical monstrosities with the infamous penal laws. We were told in the plan of campaign time and again that the law would be too strong for us, but six months after Lord Salisbury swore that the judicial rents must never be altered we had the land act of '87 making ducks and drakes of the law which produced the plan of camIn March last again paign agitation. Mr. Malachy Kelly threatened us in Westport that the law would be too strong for us, and the result of that threat is that nine months afterward the United Irish League, which was then confined to three parishes, is now spread into every county in this province, and is blazing away like a house on fire. We don't deny the power of the law is for the moment on the side of the people's enemies. We don't deny that for the moment they are strong enough to proclaim us, and assault us and imprison us to their heart's content. They have the batons and the bayonets and the landlord Magistrates and the removables and the jury packers. But the law that turns the policemen's batons against us today may make the people the policemen's masters tomorrow. That is the law in England, and sooner or later it will be the law in Ireland, as surely as the mountain rivulet sooner or later will find its way into the sea. Let us have no more of thig slavish doctrine that we are to accept bad alien laws.as if they were the unalterable laws of God, A te The Tory government pretend that they CHILDHOOD'S CHARMS. are governing Ireland on constitutional principles, and the very first of their I placed my boy in the barber's chair, a constitutional principles is that the law To be shorn of his ringlets gay, OEHMLER LEO. must be whatever the people want to And soon the wealth of his golden hair make it.

McGrath's death last Saturday came as a great shock to his army of irienus umi reimives. up nnn nmv hph sick for about a week, having caught a cold, which developed into pneumonia. He was for several years a letter carrier, and on leaving the Government service he went into business for himself at Eighth and Oak streets, but lately has been a partner iu the firm of Delaney & McGrath, at Seventh and St. Catherine, where he was doing a successful business. Mr. McGrath was born and raised in this city, and has long been an active member of Division 1 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, the members' of which testify to his many good qualities and kind heartedness. He leaves a loving wife, who sincerely mourns his loss. His funeral took place Monday morning from the Dominican church, the exercises being conducted by Rev. Father Logan, who delivered a very touching sermon, m which he paid many tributes to the good traits of the deceased. The remains were followed to St. Louis cemetery by Division !, A. O. H., and a large number of sorrowing friends. The were Messrs. Thomas Brown, James Ross, Will Reilly, Daniel John Baker and Will Delaney. At the meeting of Division 4 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Wednesday a committee composed of Messrs. Thomas Lynch, Harry Brady and M. J. Walsh submitted the following resolutions, which were unanimously adopted: Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God to take unto Himself one of our time honored and zealous members, John J. McGrath, and, while we humbly submit to His holy will, we do not the less mourn for our departed brother; therefore be it Resolved, That it is a juit tnbnte to the memory of the deceased to say thai, in regretting his removal from our midst, we mourn for one who was in every re spect worthy of our esteem. Resolved, That we sincerely condone with the family of the deceased in their affliction, and commend them for conso lation to Him who orders all things for the best, and whose chastisements are meant in mercy. Resolved, That these resolutions be spread on the minutes of this society, published iu the Kentucky Irish Ameri can, and a copy sent to the family of our departed brother.

Sergeant William Covan, Forty-firs- t Regiment, died on Thursday last at his residence in Belfast. The deceased soldier took part in engagements at Sebas-topo- l, Alma and Inkerman, and received medal and clasps and the Turkish war medal for distinguished services. The Very Rev. Canon Brosnan died at the Presbytery, Cahirciveen, December 21. The deceased will be chiefly remembered by the Irish people for the unflagging efforts which he made to have the O'Connell Memorial church completed in the birthplace of the great liberator. On Monday a ceremony of reception took place in the Community chapel of the Sisters of Mercy, Ballinrobe. The young lady who was received was Miss Mary Canavan, sister of the Rev. Richard Canavan, C. C, Neale and niece of the late most Rev. Dr. Duggan, Lord Bishop of Clonfert. A linen merchant named Thompson, of the firm of Thompson, an Rogers & Co., Limited, Belfast, was charged in the County Court in that city with having fraudulently appropriated forilis own use a quantity of linen the property of the firm. Accused was returned for trial to the next assizes, bail being allowed. A moonlighting affray is reported from Kilfennane, near Castlemaine, about seven miles from Tralee, as having occurred on Sunday night. A disguised party is stated to have visited the house of a Michael Neill and demanded arms, which Neill refused to give up. A shot was thereupon fired at him and he was wounded in the arm and face. The dispute in the Limerick tailoring trade, which broke out afresh last week in consequence of the refusal of the men to withdraw some statements made by them in a letter published in the local press regarding the merchants' attitude on the old dispute, has been satisfactorily settled and the local workmen have resumed their duties at the several warehouses. At the usual weekly meeting of the Thurles Town Commissioners, J. L. Johnson presiding, a circular was read from the honorable Secretaries of the committee having charge of the arrangements for holding a conference in Dublin on the Catholic university question on February 1. The following delegates were appointed to attend: J. L. Johnson, Hugh Ryan, John Ryan and E. J.

A number of charges of this nature having been deposed to the prisoner was returned for trial. The register for the municipal purposes for the borough of Wexford has been issued and the figures furnish a very interesting contrast to those of the old burgess list. Formerly the total voting for the three wards of the town was 217. Now it amounts to 2,179 votes. A curious fact revealed by the new register is that the number of women admitted this year to the municipal franchises is 275, which exceeds the number of the old electors. At Holyhead, after the arrival of the second portion of the morning Irish mail, a startling discovery was made. The body of a man was discovered on the line, his right arm off and his left foot smashed, the skull was knocked in and the brains scattered about. He is supposed to have wandered onto the line. His name is Henry Shirwin, late of Kids-grovwho booked from Crewe to Castle-blanevia Greenore. He had a large sum of money on him. Canon Robert McLarney, rector of Clonfert, Banagher, is endeavoring to procure the restoration of the ancient Cathedral at Clonfert, one of the oldest and most beautiful in Ireland. The restoration of the chancel is almost finished, but a sum of a thousand pounds will be required to complete the nave. Mr. Ruskin has approved of the restoration by sending a contribution of three guineas to the fund which Canon McLarney is shepherding. The grand run which the Templemore Slaghounds had on Friday last was unfortunately attended with an accident which resulted in serious injuries to John n resident in the Connelly, a district. The run had almost come to a close, when at Ballycurrane Connelly's horse tripped and fell at a stiff fence, severely bruising its rider and breaking his two thigh bones. He was attended by Dr. Jackmau, who happened to be with the hunt. The injured man was conveyed to the railway station and thence to the hospital, where he now lies in a critical condition. At a special meeting of the Ennis Town Commissioners, Mr. J. H, Harvey presiding, the clerk, Mr. Menikes, read a copy of a requisition to the Most Rev. Dr. McRedmond. Lord Bishop of Kil- laloe, from the Kildysart Board of Guardians addressed to all local bodies in Clare asVinir them to convene a public meeting in Clare in support of the de mand for a Catholic university tor Mr. Scanlan thought that as a liberal minded Protestant the Chairman would sisrn the requisition. The Chair- inn expressed bis willintrness to do so. He did not see why the Roman Catholics should not have a University as well as the Protestants, and the requisition was then signed. On Suudav nisrlit at Keelfinanej a townland in the vicinity of' Milltown, e, y, well-knowire-lan- d. County Kerry, n party of four men disguised, two of them armed with revolvers, visited the house of James O'Neill and carried off his gun. The residence of Charles O'Neill, occupied by his wife and nine children and two laborers, was then entered, and a gunshot fired over O'Neill's head. He seized a chair to push off the attacking party. Two revolver shots were fired, a bullet lodging in O'Neill's left arm, inflicting a dangerous wound. A number of police from Killorgliu, under command of District Inspector Markham, visited the scene after midnight, but no arrests have yet been made. A public meeting was held in the Town Hall, Casliel, on Tuesday night for the purpose of selecting candidates for the coining elections of Urban District Councillors. Great enthusiasm prevailed, the hall being thronged to overthrowing. The total number of voters on the list in previous years amounted to about 140, while uilder the new act the total is 427. The meeting was held under the auspices of the Casliel Branch of the Irish Land and Labor Association. The President, James J. Buggy, occupied the chair. Thomas Walsh, Richard Looby, John Duggan, Daniel Sullivan and Mathcw McNamara were named as candidates amid loud cheering. At a meeting held on Sunday at the Monastery; Lombard street, Galway, Father A. Considine, President, in the chair, Thomas P. Hunt, a boy aged seven years and ten months, was declared the winner of the prize for a written exercise in Irish character, a competition which was for members under ten years. At a committee meeting afterward a special vote of thanks was passed to Luke Walsh, M. J. Connolly, A. Glynn and John Naughton for their valuable services ns teachers. The old veteran scholar Mathew Usher was presented with a valuable old Irish book in recognition of his services to this branch and the Irish language movement as a teacher and organizer. Another sad and fatal accident occurred in the tunnel which is being cut through the Mourne mountain, near Newcastle, in connection with the new waterworks for Belfast. It appears that a gang of men descended the tunnel for the purpose of clearing away the debris after the explosion of a number of cartridges of somedynamite, when unfortunately thing came in contact with a cartridge which had not gone off and an explosion followed, killing William McDonagh and seriously injuring ohn Moffat and Pat Casey. An alarm was raised and the injured men, with the remains of McDonagh, were brought up the shaft to the surface. The occurrence following on the last sad accident at the same place has cast a gloom over the entire neighborhood.. On Sunday night a meeting of the Arklow '08 Centenary Committee was held for the purpose of starting a fund to erect a suitable monument to commemorate the memory of Father Michael Murphy, who was killed at the lwttle of Arklow in June, 1798. Edmund Wnlshe, President, occupied the chair, and there was a large attendance wf tnetrfbersr-TTfjPresident, in the course of an eloquent address, appealed to those present to do what they could to collect subscriptions, and by every means in their power to as sist in the object of erecting a memorial to Father Michael Murphy. It might be said that Arklow was rather late in the field, as New Ross, Wexford, Gorey and other places had decided to erect a monument, but they were in a peculiar position in Arklow, as he believed that they would not get n site from the present grand jury in Wicklow. We much regret to record the sudden death of James Canning, which occurred at his residence, Canning Court, Dublin, late on Tuesday night, December 20. who had The deceased gentleman, reached the advanced age of sixty years, went out into his yard about 10 o'clock and in a few minutes was found by Mrs. Canning lying on the ground. The priest and Dr. McEvoy were immediately sent for, but on their arrival life was found extinct. Mr. Canning, who was for fifteen years a member of the Township Board, was ever a consistent Nationalist, but always tolerant of the views of those who differed with his own, a fact that is abundantly testified to by the d regrets of nil residents in the township in which he was held in such great esteem.

MEFFERT, MANAQEEi West Market St. FOUR TO Muldoon Monument Company ROUTE jj j Great indignation prevails in Wexford at an extraordinary piece of red tapeism of Dublin Castle which has been the means of doing incalculable injury to the Wexford fishing industry. Last April or May a fishery inquiry was held in Wex ford, when the Fishery Commissioners recommended that a by-lashould be made prohibiting steam trawlers from entering Wexford bay, its approaches and its bays around. This recommendation had its origin in the dreadful havoc which trawlers made by tearing up the fishery beds and destroying hundreds of tons of spawn. The result was that several hundred fishermen suffered severely from the consequent scarcity of fish, and at the present time poverty and destitution is to be found in many of their homes. The herring fishing this season was scarcely worth considering, for the poor fishermen were afraid that if they left their nets out the English and Scotch trawleis would tear them up and destroy them. When the was recommended the poor people believed that it would be carried into effect at once; but the officials of Dublin Castle responsiDie tor us continuation had not up to the present deemed it worth their while to do so. As a result things have been going from bad to worse, and even at the present time there are five or and Scotch trawlers annihilating the fine fishing eround. At the last meeting of the Wexford Board of Guardians a strong resolution was passed call- in on me ivoru lieutenant ana Privy Council to at once put the by-lainto effect, for otherwise it is feared large numbers of the fishermen and their families will be obliged to seek relief from the union. w by-la- w w and statesman, President Andrew Jackson.
