SPAIN At the recent meeting of the American Irish Historical Society Hon Thomas J Gargan the new President General and James Jeffrey Roche the able editor of the Boston Pilot delivered addresses that created great enthusiasm President Gargan spoke as follows We may congratulate ourselves on the progress which this society has made during the two years of its existence On January 20 1807 in response to a call signed by thirty gentlemen from several of the States of our republic forty or more gentlemen assembled at Boston and organized this society Among other statements the call recited that a number of gentlemen interested in the put taken in American history by people of Irish birth or lineage are about to ors gauize themselves into an historical so ciety for the purpose of investigating and recording the influence of that element in the upbuilding of the nation also to place the Irish element in its true light in American history to secure its correct perspective in relation to historic events on this soil is the final aim of the new society Its primal object will lbe to ascertain the facts weigh them in reIn tion to contemporary events and estimate their historical value avoiding in this and extrava process the exaggeration gance of poorly informed writers on the the and misrep one hand and prejudice resentation of hostile writers on the other We further stated the organization will be constructed on a broad and liberal plan It will be nonpolitical and no religious test will be required for ads mission to membership or tfie holding of office

which the society is organized Estab lished on this broad and liberal basis the accessions to its roll of membership have been most encouraging as we have now more than one thousand members representatives in the truest sense of tire intelligence and character of the descend ants of the Irish race in America coming from all parts of this great country a country which their forefathers among the early colonists took an active part in reclaiming from the wilderness and up building into this great republic of the lnlted States of which we are no insignificant factor A distinguished man who wrote nearly a century ago said that all history was a series of lies which a few jnen agreed to consider facts We all agree that much of the history that has been written in the past has been written by men who preferred to see things through their prejudices rather than their eyes and no people have suf fered more from the ignorance and prejudice of writers particularly English writers than the Irish people Un fortunately many New England writers inherited the prejudices of their English ancestors and have either deliberately slurred the contributions of the Irish in our history or have failed to record them A discriminating and critical public des nand that the searchlight shall be thrown upon tha dark spots We are now in this scientific age rewriting much of our history and revising our judgment of men We cordially welcome this new era confident that when all the facts are carefully scrutinized and critically ex amined the Irish in thf United States have nothing to fear but on the con immeasurably in thetrary will gain minds of all intelligent and impartial ofInthis society papers will be found of the early history of the Irish settlers in New England by Messrs Murray Linehan Smith Brandon and Sbeahan members at our society thus preserving in perma nent form facts useful to the future his torian The New England historian has never been noted for modesty in claim ing a fmTshare of the glory of our coun try for New Englanders or as he is prone to write it descendant of the AngloSaxon race While honoring as they deserve to be honored the men of Boston and Massachusetts who initiated the war of the revolution we are not unmindful of what others have done to make our independence possible and es tablish this form of government of ours founded upon the doctrinenot of the divine right of Kings or of any other ruler no matter what he may call him selfto rule people but the divine right of the people to rule themselves and lest we forget in our hour of conquest let us recall again the doctrine of the founders of this Government that all government ought to rest on the consent of the governed In establishing this Government the Irish element were a very important factor Jn the British House of Com room Report 6tU aeMipii14th Parlia I ment Vol XIII page 301 we find the report of an investigation of the causes of defeat in the war with the colonies the investigation was held in 1770 Major General Roberts who has served twenty four years in America was asked How are the provincial corps composed mostly from native Americans or from emigrants front various nations of Europe He answered Some of the corps mostly of natives others I believe the greatest number are enlisted from such people as can be got in the country and many of them may be emigrants I remember Gen Lee telling me that he believed half the rebel army were from IrelandIn Vol XIII British Commons Report page 431 Joseph Galloway a native of Penn sylvania Speaker

Among the ques tions asked was That part of the rebel army that enlisted in the service of Con gress were they chiefly composed of natives of America or were the greater part of them English Scotch or Irish Galloway answered The names and places of their nativity being taken down I can answer the question with precision There were scarcely onefourtlf natives of America onehalf Irish the other fourth English and Scotch The Irish contributed their full share in the war of 1812 in the war with Mexico and in the war that kept the Union whole All facts relating to the part borne by them should be carefully collected In the late war with Spain we have a large field for investigation From the State of Massachusetts one fifth of her quota of soldiers were unmis takably of Irish ancestry the Ninth Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers went into the field as an IrishAmerican regi ment of the other four regiments and the large number of sailors an impartial investigation would show a surprisingly large number of men of Irish ancestry and what is true of Massachusetts is true of every State in the Union Gentlemen while we are proud ot our origin and our ancestry we do not forget that above all we are Americans that we earnestly desire that all the different elements that go to make up this nation shall be blended together This American republic is a mighty crucible into which are thrown many elements We have been and shall be tested by severe fires we must separate the dress and the alloy and the refined product will come forth pivrified by the severest test In our process of amalga mation we shall eliminate from the dif ferent nationalities and races what is gross and bad avoiding the vices and ehwlatinsrtheikood traitsondvirtucs evolving as the product of our American

give a bazaar beginning Easter Monday April 3 and continuing for one week at their schoolhouse Sixth street between Oak and St Catherine which from pres ent appearances will be one of the grand est ever given inthis line in the city Fathers Logan Symines Daly and Has senfuss ably assisted by every one of the church societies in the parish have been working like beavers for the last several weeks perfecting arrangements that will tend toward making it a great success in every way and also a temporary mono ument of the charitableness of the peo ple of the Dominican parish Their enthusiasm has even been imbibed by the little school children who may be seen each evening afterschool canvassing subscriptions and donations for their beloved church and school There have been several prizes offered for the person cashing the most tickets one prize in particular being a 300 piano which is causing an exciting race between several contestants two of the most notable being Miss Maggie Finnegan the popular daughter of Mr Michael Finnigan and John G McGrath the wellknown turnkey of the jail Each church society will be represented by a booth whose interests will be looked after by members of the respective societies In regard to this feature there is sure to be some nov elties in the manner of booth decora tions as there is quite a rivalry among the different societies each trying to surpass the other in the appearance of their booths In addition to the bazaar features the Very Rev Father Logan has arranged a delightful programme to be rendered each night Both vocal and instrumental solos will be given by members of the congregation there being quite an array of talented musi cians and singers in that district The tickets are sold in books and are known as combination tickets for besides an ad mission to the fair they entitle the holder to a chance on ten valuable articles two of which are A gold watch and an order for a suit of clothes From the present hustling appearance of the parish members it seems as if they are determined to make the St Louis Bertrand church bazaar stand forth for some time to come as a bazaar of bazaars ands shining light to their charitable ness It is by such honest endeavors and efforts as these that the Catholic brethren of other churches are fjiven an incentive to put their shoulder to the wheel and do the same for

FoIlowed by a Hop An Interesting Meeting of the County Board and Much Business Tranfincteclc THE TWENTYFIFTH ANNIVERSARY The County Board of the Ancient Order of Hibernians held a largely at tended special meeting Saturday even ing with President John Murphy in the chair and all the divisions well repre sented owing to the fact that there was a great deal of business to transact The quarterly and yearly reports were read apd filed and they show all the divisions to be prosperous with an in creased membership and thus the County Board enters upon the new year under most favorable circumstances The board is financially well off with no liabilities The committee to whom was referred the matter of procuring n lot for the burial of deceased members reported progress It is understood to be their intention to secure a large plat of ground that will contain at least fifty graves St Patricks day will be celebrated this year in a manner that will please and reflect credit on the descendants of the Patron Saint of the Emerald Isle With this end in view it was decided to arrange for an elaborate literaryand musical entertainment followed by a hop to be held in Hibernian Hall on the evening of March 17 The committee to whom the matter of the celebration of that day was referred reported at the meeting of the County Board Saturday night and their recommendation that the entertainment to be given be complimentary and not for profit was unanimously adopted after which the Hall Board generously donated the use of the hall for that evening free ofchargeThe who will arrange the programme and make the necessary arrangements are VJllam McCarthy Thos e John Mulloy Thomas Camfield Thomas Kelly J Charles Obst and Joseph Lynch and that they will succeed in securing attractions that will fill the hall is a fore gone conclusion To each member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians a limited number of tickets are to be issued which can only be pro cured of the officers of the divisions at the meetings to be held between now and March 17 Therefore every member should attend a meeting of his division prior to that date For some time past there has been a growing desire that the County Board should be incorporated and John Mul loy was appointed Chairman of a committee instructed to prepare articles of incorporation and have them filed This year the divisions will unite in celebrating the twentyfifth aniversary of the order in Louisville on the Fourth of July a day that has been observed by the Hibernians of this city since the birth of the first division County President Murphy and Presidents Clancy Median Taylor Hennessey McCarthy and Capt Breen were appointed an executive committee and they will begin active work at onceGeorge Flahiff who for some time past hiss been the efficient Secretary of the board was compelled to resign because of business engagements Thomas J Kelly of Division 4 was elected to the position for the unexpircd term and will prove a worthy successor After transacting other business of minor importance and thanking the Hall Board for its generosity the meeting adjourned IRISH SAGA LITERATURE Ireland Has a Brilliant

University in Washington for the sole purpose of pre serving the native language and to en able such clubs as these to study the same It is hoped by the promoters of the movement that the next meeting will be well attended All Irishmen should have an interest in it Young men should come to learn and old ones should give it their support in order to make the club a success Clubs and classes are being started All over the country in connection with the league It is well to say that the Rev Father Heuebry the present professor in Wash ington is Untiring in his efforts to help clubs of thief

Laborite upheaval which has been the dominant feature of the first elections in the Irish munici palities under the local government act introduces another bewildering complication into the inextricable tangle of Irish politics Except in Limerick where Mayor John Dalys twentyfive stalwarts are obviously extremists the Laborite memo bers are politically an unknown quantity But they must be counted within the future not only in municipal but in Parliamentary contests where labor never has been recognized by representa tion HS such although several Nationalist members sprang from that class As was predicted Mr Daly has been elected Mayor of Limerick In his speech on assuming the Mayors chair and chain amid uproarious enthusiasm he said During my years of suffering in British dungeons my fancy painted many pictures but never in my wildest dreams did I expect the cruel iron chain of any English jailers would be replaced by the golden chain of the city of the violated treatyI will do all in my power to preserve decorum in this council and I trust it will be found that my pcrty displays a spirit of intelligence and fair play to those who oppose us Dalys salary as

wards There is no question as to his ability and his competitors for the honor will be kept busy from now until the race is run This week he issued the following address to leis constituents- To the Democrats of the Eleventh and Twelfth wards I desire to announce my candidacy for the Legislature front the Fiftyfirst district composed of the Eleventh and Twelfth wards subject to the action of the Democratic party In submitting my candidacy to the Demo crats of mydistrict it is unnecessary for me to refer to my record as a Democrat In the recent Congressional convention which nominated the Hon Oscar Turner I was a delegate and as a member of the Committee on Resolutions succeeded in having the convention adopt by a vote of 101 to 01 n platform of Democrtic principles indorsing the Chicago

Minneapolis Irish Standard litsthe present Administration some hard raps It points out where the Republican party of today is alien ating many votes by its proBritish policy It tells us that the great Daniel OConnell when pleading the cause of his country in a hostile legislature declared that whenever the London Times complimented him upon his words or actions he felt like making an act of contrition for something of which he was in voluntarily guilty The late Wen dell Phillips the silvertongued or ator of America was wont to say that it was quite safe for the United States on every occasion to oppose any policy advocated by the British Government in international affairs Many patriotic IrishAmericans agreed with Mr Phillips and joined the Republican party be cause it was opposed to free trade The Republican party in later days has abandoned its policy of protec tion as well as its policy of bimetallism and is today the proBritish party in this country The Irish Americans are deserting it as rats desert a sinking ship for they see that the grand party of the past which stood for patriotism and Americanism has changed its prin ciples and is going to inevitable destruction Nobody will deny that England is quite auxious that the United States shall retain perma nent occupation of the Philippines The islands have been ceded to the JJnited Staf S by a countryvhose authority was disputed at the point of the sword and which was never recognized by millions of the in habitants At the suggestion of British statesmen the McKinley Administration took the islands from Spain for the paltry sum of 20000000 and if the President produced his confidential instruc tions to the Peace Commissioners as requested by the Senate it v6uld be found that Great Britain took an active part in the negotiations Lest we may be accused of Anglophobia for making that assertion we pro duce the following from the New York World to show the motives that have actuated England Ad vocates of the policy of expansion both of the class that endeavors to finds serious arguments in favor of the scheme ns well as the gutter snipe class which imagines that the case is to be settled by childish vituperation of opponents are equally rejoiced over the fact that our projected advance into the Pa cific is regarded with favor in Eng land This favor was again expressed in Joseph Chamberlains speech in which we congratulated his hearers that Great Britains op position to the French proposal for an extension of the settlement at Shanghai had been strenuously sup ported by the representative of the United States But can any one suppose that Englands motive is a pure regard for our welfare It is not neces sary to go so far as to assume that we should instinctively avoid a policy that might be so agreeable to another power It is enough to consider Englands very obvious motive which is to put into the scale of those great Oriental schemes the weight of one first class power that is not her neces sary and inevitable enemy England in the East is face to face with Russia with Germany ad with France She has been almost in hostile contact with f every one of them They are n ill jealous of her and they all hate her for prosperity and strengh and if there is one point upon which n u- o 4 i n they ever could agree it is that of opposition to British schemes Just now as China is about inn fit state to be cut up and this general hostility is acute an empire in islands suddenly floats into view as somebodys possible spoil If we keep out of that hurlyburly iif the Philippines are made independent there will be in five years an enormous addition to the Eastern complications in the shape of a dispute as to who shall really pos sess the island empire Out of that great naval conflicts may come What wonder then that Eng land should be glad to see that crisis postponed should desire to see the islands administered by a power sympathetic with her own commercial schemes and should contemplate with calm benevolence the spectacle of our spending a thousand million dollars in a few years to keep a place warm for her I ELECTIONS IN IRELAND For the first time in their history under the British government the Irish people held elections last month in the cities and towns throughout the country and voted for their own candidates for local offices under the new system The result of the elections demonstrates their capacity for selfgovernment says the Irish Standard and many years will not elapse until they have a parliament of their own in College Green The county elec tions will take place next March audcavvdidateshave eIdy been placed in nomination for members of the county boards in many dis tricts of the island The elections in the cities and towns have shown beyond doubt that the Irish people are tired of Redmondism The labor element is predominent in the municipalities and in Cork Limerick and Dublin it held the balance of power between the follow ers of Dillon and those of Redmond and gave the latter the worst of it at the polls According to a spe cial dispatch to a New York paper the labor element won noble vic tories under the new local govern ment act Redmondites lost every where while Dillonites gainedand it is thought that factionism is at an enda consummation devotedly to be wished In the Dublin corporation where the

of all for there John Daly who served fourteen years for alleged dynamiting has won twen tyfour out of forty seats and was elected Mayor The Unionites who have fared badly everywhere in these

their capital on the I4iffeyIJEFFERSON AND fTKINLEY Jefferson bought Louisiana under compulsion of national necessity He bought it not upon his own re sponsibility but under direct au thority of Congress says the New York World Nevertheless when all this had been done when the Senate had ratified the treaty and the House had appropriated the purchase money Jefferson was still troubled with scruples as to the constitu tionality of the act On the 9th of August 1803 he wrote this to John Dickinson I There is a difficulty in this ac quisition which presents a handle to the malcontents among us though they have not yet discovered it Our confederation is certainly con fined to the limits established by the Revolution The General Gov ernment has no powers but such as the Constitution has given it and it has not given it a power of hold ing foreign territory and still less of incorporating it into the Union An amendment to the Constitution seems necessary for this In the meantime we must ratify and pay our money as we have treated for a thing beyond the Constitution and rely upon the nation to sanc tion an act done for its great good without its previous authority Is there any parallel here with Mr McKinleys assumption of au thority without even an act of Congress to support him to annex remote regions raise the flag there and defiantly ask Who will dare to UUUi U UUWU 1 Jefferson acted outside the Con stitution under stress of stern necessity and with the sanction both of Congress and the country McKinley has acted as if there were no Constitution no Congress and no country whose consent is neces sary to the validating of his acts Jefferson purchased peace and prosperity in securing contiguous territory and apologized for exceed ing his powers in doing so Mc Kinley has bought a troublesome war and costly and dangerous com plications in another hemisphere without even asking permission of Congress still less asking for any constitutional sanction BEYOND

soft brown To see her sweet smile with her red lips apart Sure twould set the rogue stealing right into your heart Myself had the looks too and stool six foot high Yes a couple worth seeing were Mollie and I Ahl well I remember one bright summer day When we thought there was never such bloom on the niay And the birds sang so sweetly front out i F of the glen They sure never sang half so sweetly as then And that night no such stars ever shone in the sky So full of loves magic were Mollie and I For Id told her my lovewell you all know the way Since when heart thrills to heart there needs little to say And there she was walking close up to lilY side With her hand clasped in mine my own promised bride No happier pair could be found far or nigh That fair summer even than Mollie and I How the thoughts of old times they throng into my head With that day of all days when niy Mollie I wed I wore a brave sl1itso smart and so tight With Mollie beside me in soft flowing white I stepped proud as a king but my love she looked shy As we passed to the chapel my Mollie and I Ohl but I was the blest one to win such a wife The light of my home and the joy of my life And to me twas the crowning of all her sweet charms When she held our first babe in her love ly white arms So full was my heart that I prayed Gotl on high We might never Ibe parted my Mollie and I Of fine lads and lassies wed nigh half a score Not a one though too many yet askin no more And when with lifes care Id get some what cast down Ihad1 still herfeaghtsffltig ahi but never one frowned our joy and our sorrow our laugh i and our cry For we shared all together my Mollie arid I Now they tell me shes sleeping and still must sleep on But the children are weeping Oh where has she gone And is it without me shes found her last rest Who for fifty long years has lain in my breast And what is this darkness The lights left the sky Our Father were coming my Mollie and I Susan Carleton Brush EDMUND BURKE We have in Edmund Burke one of the most brilliant examples of the genius contributed by Ireland to the fame of the British empire The story of his won derful influence in molding the destinies of his country has been more than once referred to in these columns He was in the prime of life thirtysix years old when he electrified the British Parlia ment on the occasion of his maiden speech on the 27th of January 1770 by his masterly eloquence and the profound knowledge of public affairs which he displayed The learned Dr Johnson referring to the occasion said that Burke filled the town with wonder- It was on the proposed repeal of the Stampact which at that time was be ing discussed in Parliament and created most intense excitement From that time forth for thirty years his star never wanedand he was recognized as the greatest of Englands statesmen in the depth of his philosophy and wide famil iarity with all subjects which came up for discussion It is related of him that returning from Parliament late one night he was accosted by an unfortunate who when he replied to her with kind advice implored his assistance to rescue her from a life of shame and misery Are you willing said he to give up your present life of sinBeing satisfied with the sincerity of her answer he took her into his home and by his care and that of Mrs Burke she was restored to society He devoid considerable attention to the history and antiquities of Ireland and the study of the Irish language and in 17G7 was granted the freedom of the city of Dublin for his services to Ireland in Parliament He had said the Encyclopaedia Britannica ua native abhorrence of cru elty of injustice of disorder of oppression of tyranny and all these things in all their degrees marked Hastings course in India They were moreover concen trated in individual oases which exer cised Burkes passionate imagination to its profoundest depths and raised it to such a glow of fiery intensity as has never been rivaled in our For it endured for bistoryII was just as burning and fastings was acquitted in 1705 M in the SelectCommitteeo11781when HasUiiga z 7 T enormities were first revealed If I were to call for a reward wrot6 Burke it would be for the services in which for fourteen years without intermission I showed the most industry and had the least successI mean in the affairs of India they are those on which I value thyself the most most for the import ance most for the labor most for the judgment most for constancy and per seveTence in the pursuit Sheridans speech in the House of Commons upon the charge relative to the Be gums of Oude probably excelled anything that Burke achieved as a dazzling per formance abounding in the most surpris ing literary andrhetorical effects But neither Sheridan nor Pox was capable of that sustained and overflowing indig nation at outraged justice and oppressed humanity that consuming moral fire which Durst forth again and again from the chief manager of the impeachment with such scorching might as drove even the cool and intrepid Hastings beyond all self control and made him cry out with protests and exclamations like a criminal writhing under the scourge Burke no doubt in the course of that unparalleled trial showed some preju dice made some minor overstatements of his case used many intemperances and suffered himself to be provoked into expressions of heat and impatience by the cabals of the defendant and his party and he intolerable incompetence of the tribunal It is ore of the inscrut able perplexitiej of human affairs that in the logic of practical life in order to reach conclusions that cover enough for truth we are constantly driven to prem ises that cover too much and that in order to secure their right weight to justice and reason good men are forced to fling the twoedged sword of passion into the same scale But these excuses were mere trifles and well deserve to be forgiyen when we think that though the offender was inform acquitted yet Burke succeeded in these fourteen years of laborious effort in laying the foundations once for allof a moral just philanthropic and respon sible public opinion in England with ref erence to India and in doing so per formed perhaps the most magnificent service that any statesman has ever had it in his power to render to humanity FATHER HORRIdAN Prom the Minneapolis Irish

the funny men of the newspapers Pat or Mike is always the one who can respond wittily This is all unconscious tribute on the part of the paragraphers to that innate sense of humor which seems to be instilled in every mothers son of Ire land It bubbles out spontaneously and often turus the shaft intended for him at the one who launched it But there is another role in which Pat figures often and which is not so well relished by him And this is the character of the drunk ard It is said the Irish people are more fond of the cup that cheers than any other nation but statistics do not prove the truth of this assertion The phleg matic German leads in the matter of drinking but it is presumed that on ac count of this stolid disposition the Teuton does not so readily succumb to the ineb riating effects of the spirits consumed So much has been written of late about the gun that is not loaded and so many accidents have resulted from that same gun it would seem that little could be added to what has already been said on the question But still a word of caution as to the keeping of such articles out of the way of children and being certain that the loads have been with drawn might not be out of place Boys especially seem possessed of a desire to have a pistol or firearm of some descrip tion in their own hands and can not re sist the impulse to raise and point it playfully at some one when another tragedy is recorded Some years ago when church fairs were frequent a pop- 11aryoungadITVhawas agreatworker the hall with a gun in his hand She approached him and asked him for which table it was in tended As no particular place had been designated by the donor he said it might go on the table over which she presided Lifting the gun to his shoulder he playfully pointed itat the lady and snapped it A mutual friend saw him and has tily interposed telling hint that he might be responsible for the death of some one The man with the gun re plied that it was not loaded but the other told him to take it to a locksmith and be certain He did so and found there was one load in it This gave him such a fright that he has never again pointed a gun or pistol loaded or tin loaded at any otie It is the unloaded gun that always shoots Anent the discussion over the saloon question that is now being carried on so vigorously on account of Bishop Potters recent utterances why does net some one step forward and claim that the mother needs recreation and at times an escape one might say front the environments of home On the mother principally devolves the care and training of the children and how can slie broaden her mind and take a wider view of life so as not to contract the budding minds that are under her fostering care unless she can occasionally get from the confines of her own home Vliy should all the burden of training fall on the woman And why should all the amusement and pleasure be for the man Let him take his pleasure with his family and if at first his house be uncomfortable with his help it will be speedily changed and he will find some true enjoyment than at the saloon Something of a sensation in church circles has been created by the publica tion of the statement made by Father Thomas Ducey at high mass at St Leos church New York recently that the burial of Protestants would be permitted from the mortuary chapel now being built in connection with this church says Leslies Weekly This was coupled with the statement that members of the church who may have friends who have died in hotels or boardinghouses in New York could have their bodies brought to the new chapel and that a clergyman of any denomination might read prayers over the dead Heretofore burial services in Catholic mortuaries have been abso lutely limited to Catholics It is an in teresting fact that the money contributed for the erection of Father Dnceysnew chapel with the exception Of Ida own contribution has been given by persons outside of the Catholic faith Father
