Kentucky Irish American. VOLUME II. NO. 5. LOUISVILLE: SATURDAY; FEBRUARY 4, ment, Vol. XIII., page 30.'1, we find the report of an investigation of Uie causes of defeat in the war with the colonies the investigation was held in 1779 Major General Roberts, who has served twenty-fou- r years in America, was asked: "How are the provincial corps composed, mostly from native Americans o- - from emigrants from 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 tUem may be emigrants. I remember Gen. Lee telling me that he believed half the rebel army were from Ireland. "In Vol. XIII., British Commons' Report, page 431, Joseph Galloway, a native of Pennsylvania, Speaker of the Assembly of the colony for twelve years and n delegate to the First Continental Congress, who became a violent Tory in 177.1, was examined for several days by members of the House of Commons. Among the questions asked was: "That part of the rebel army that enlisted in the service of Congress, 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 natives of America, one-haIrish, 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 unmistakably of Irish ancestry; the Ninth Regiment Massachusetts Volunteers went n regiinto the field as an ment; of the other four regiments and the large number of sailors nu 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 purified by the severest test. In our process of amalgamation we shall eliminate from the different nationalities and races what is gross and bad, avoiding the vices and traits and virtues.d emulating evolving as the product of our American civilization the highest type of manhood or wonranhood to be found on the habitable globe. one-fourt- h lf Irish-Americathe-goo- 18f)9. candidates.

At the recent meeting of the American Irish Historical Society Hon. Thomas J. Gnrgan, the new President General, and James Jeffrey Roche, the able editor of the Iloston Pilot, delivered addresses that created great enthusiasm. President Gargan spoke as follows: Wc 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 seveial 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 part taken in American history by people of Irish birth or lineage are about to organize themselves into an historical 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 societv. Its primal object will le to ascertain the facts, weigh them in relation to contemporary events and estimate their historical value, avoiding in this process the exaggeration and extravagance of poorly informed writers on the one hand and the prejudice and misrepresentation of hostile writers on the other.

The quarterly and yearly reports were read and filed, and they show all the divisions to be prosperous, with an increased 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 a 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. Patrick's 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 literary and followed by a musical entertainment, 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 Iks complimentary and not for profit was unanimously adopted, after which the Hall Board generously donated the use of the hall for that evening free of charge.

Thomas Drcwry, one of the best known and most popular young Democrats in the West End, has been prevailed upon by his friends to make the race for the Legislature from the Eleventh and Twelfth 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 his constituents: "To the Democrats of the Eleventh and Twelfth wards: I desire to announce my candidacy for the Legistatnre frouf district, .composed of the the Fifty-firs- t Eleventh and Twelfth wards, subject to the action of the Democratic party. In submitting my candidacy to the Democrats 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, a platform of Democrtic principles indorsing the Chicago platform and favoring the. nomination of Mr. Bryan in 1000. As a result of my active participation in that convention for what I thought was right I lost my position in the City Hall. I shall make my race on the same platform upon which that convention placed the Hon. Oscar Turner, and confidently believe that it will meet with the approval of the If elected, Democrats of my district. I shall endeavor to serve the people to the best of my ability; if defeated for the nomination, I shall labor faithfully for the election of my victorious opponent and the entire Democratic ticket.

SILVER JUBILEE, Anniversary Celebration of Father O'Sulllvan's Ordination to the Priesthood. O'Sullivan, rector of the Church of the Blessed Sacrament, was celebrated with imposing ceremonies Wednesday morning. Right Rev. Monsignor M. Bouchet officiated at the solemn high mass and was assisted by the Revs. John B. Kelly, of New Albany; Melody, of Preston Park, and Hogarty, of Lebanon. Father O'Sullivan was not present, being absent in California 4 on account of impaired health. After the services the celebrants of the mass and a number of visiting clergymen were tendered a banquet. The pastor is much beloved by his congregation, and Father Felton, who has charge during his absence, concluded to honor the absent clergyman, who has done so much for the congregation by building a new church and schools. Telegrams were sent to Father O'Sullivan, felicitating him on the successful close of the twenty- five years in the priesthood, and a hand some purse was torwaniea 10 nun as a token of the esteem in which he is neiu by his parishioners. Father O'Sullivan years ago. was born in Ireland sixty-foHe came to America when quite young and learned the tanner's trade, but soon forsook it for the priesthood. He was ordained a priest on January 31, 187-1- . Six years after he came to Louisville and took charge of a mission, from which he has built up the flourishing parish of the Blessed Sacrament. ur mighaelcollins. The meeting of the Society Thursday night was one of which every member has reason to be proud. When President Keenan took the chair there was n good attendance of members, which was augmented to n considerable degree by a number of lale arrivals. The minutes of the preceding meeting, which had been so misrepresented in some ot the daily papers, were approved by a unanimous vote, after which five applications for membership were received and the candidates elected, and several who had been previously admitted to membership were initiated. The committee appointed to draw up a new form of initiation asked for and were granted further time in wliich to bring in its report. The members of the committe promised to have their report ready for the next meeting, which wijl be held February 1G. A committee was also instructed to convey to Mayor Weaver the infonna-tio- n that he had been tendered a rising vote in return for courteous treatment of the Society and compliance with an appeal made to him re- cently. During the evening a number of interesting talks were made by members, in which many suggestions were thrown out as how the membership may be still further increased and the city benefited by the operations of the Society, among the speakers being James Horan, John Ryan, Michael Lawler, John Keane, Col. John Wlmllen, Mark Ryan, John Kelly aud President Keenan. Mr. Kelly and others were frequently applauded.

Fathers Logan, Synimes, Daly and 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 monument of the charitableness of the people of the Dominican parish. Their enthusiasm has even been imbibed by the little school children, who may be seen each evening after'school 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.

To each member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians a limited number of tickets are to be issued, which can only be procured 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 Mulloy was appointed Chairman of a committee instructed to prepare articles of incorporation and have them filed. This year the divisions will unite in aniversary celebrating the twenty-fift- h 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.

Kelly, of Division 4, was elected to the position for the unexpired 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. Although the next election is uiile months off there are already many announced candidates for political preferment, and the indications are that the contest will be n most lively one. The announcement was made this week that Mr. Michael Collins would make the race tor Councilman tram the Iileventli ward, and his friends feel confident of his winning. Mr. Collins has resided continuously in this city since he was mustered out of the Union army in 1805, and for the past twenty years has been the agent of the Northern Lake Ice Conlpany. For the past six years he has officiated as Democratic Committeeman in his precinct in the Eleventh ward and has been a tower of strength to his party. Mr. Collins also stands high in fra ternal society circles, being a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Improved Order of Heptosophs and Mackin Council. He is well known and popular and will make a strong race. STUDY OF GAELIC. Lively Interest Being Taken in tho Movement in This City. The announcement was made in these columns some weeks ago that a meeting of those interested in the formation of branch of the Gaelic class for the study of the Irish language would take place at Hibernian Hall. Since then much interest has been shown by those who have the preservation of the Gaelic tongue at heart. They have commnnicated with the officers of the Gaelic League, and they have advice and instructions how to form a league. Literature for such clubs is very cheap, as it was made possible by the Ancient Order Hibernians of this country, when they donated $50,000 for the establishment of the pro fessorship in the Catholic University in Washington for the sole purpose of preserving the native language and to enable 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 Henebry, the present professor in Wash ington, is Untiring in his efforts to help clubs of this kind along. Through him books of study are arranged for those beginning to study the language. These can he purchased at a very small cost, something it was almost impossible to obtain a few years ago. hitherto dictator of his town, was de feated, while the first place on the poll was taken "by one of Leonard's day labor ers earning $2.25 a week. All the old ideas of electing men of property and social standing have been completely upset in the smaller towns. The silent revolution finds its most grotesque manifestations in the election of two jaunting car drivers, locally called "Jarveys," one for an Alderman and the other for a Councilor. A local merchant drove to the Council Chamber for the first meeting of the corporation on an Alderman's car, paid the Alderman "Jarvey" sixpence fare, was saluted with Thank you, sir," and both walked in together, the "Jarvey" taking his seat among the Aldermen, while the prosperous merchant subsided into the comparative obscurity of the Councilors' bench.

Expressions of sympathy and good will were heard on all sides for Col. Whallen over the loss of his theater by the disastrous fire of Thursday morning. Before adjourning the members paid a handsome compliment to the Kentucky Irish American, and resolved to add 500 new subscribers to our list. The action was wholly unexpected, which makes it the more appreciated. This is a substantial recognition, which we hope will be followed by similar Louisville societies. Upon the whole the session was one of the pleasantest held for a long time, and while some parties expected some action to be taken in regard to the misrepre sentations made of the last meetinir nothing was done, the membership wise ly concluding to treat them as unworthy of notice. Col. John Whallen, Jeff BantiOn and Mike Lawler were appointed a committee to arrange for the procuring of the emblem of the society, which will be issued only to those in good standing.

ELECTIONS IN IRELAND. For the first time iu 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 uuder the new system. The result of the elections demonstrates their capacity for says the Irish standard, and many years will not elapse until they have a parliament of their own in College Green.

The elections in the cities and towns have shown beyond doubt that the Irish peo pie are tired of Redmondism. The labor element is predominent in the municipalities and in Cork, Lim erick and Dublin it held the bal ance 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 special 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 gained, and it is thought that factionism is at an end a consummation devotedly to be wished. In the Dublin corporation, where the electorate increased from 8,000 to 38,000 voters including for the first time 6,500 women the labor members are increased from three to twelve, while John Redmoud's party, which held forty-foout of sixty seats in the old council, has been reduced to twenty.

"Mac", the young Irish author, has lately come to this country to look after some business interests and incidentally to arrange for the American copyrights of his books.

In this respect Mr. MacManus is well equipped for the sea' of American approbation, and his work has woii unstinted praise and genuine appreciation from literary London, That American publishers are not slow in recogniziug clever work finds affirmation in the fact that this young writer has disposed of a number of stories and sketches to local periodicals and is also negotiating for the publication of some books. Mr. MacManus lives in the County Donegal, the extreme northwest arm of Ireland. It is the peasantry of this almost isolated and still primitive section that engages his pen. He has always lived among them and knows the wedding, the wake, the fair, the spree, as a participant. Nothing quite so re dolent of the soil has appeared in many day.

The tnost disastrous conflagration' of the year occurred early Thursday. morning, when the Buckingham Theater was entirely destroyed in less than an hour's time. The fire was caused by an electric wire, and the efforts of the fire department were all in vain. The loss will reach an amount exceeding $ G0,000, upon which there is an insurance of only about d that sum. The theater has always been a popular one, and all day long streams of people could be seen viewing the ruins, the great majority of whom took occasion to express their sympathy to Messrs John and James Whallen. The theater-goin- g public will be glad to learn that they will rebuild at once, and their enterprise is a guarantee that ere long the old building will be replaced by a more modern and handsome one. The work of reconstruction will begin immediately and continue night and day until the new theater is ready for opening, which will be in about thirty days. The company that was performing lost a great deal of property, as did nnny of the musicians and employes, who will be temporarily out of employment. Citizens of all classes are encouraging the Messrs. Whallen, who are two of the most enterprising and public spirited business men in Louisville, and all express the hope that they may soou their great loss. one-thirre-tri- day. When we thought there was never such bloom on the may; And the birds sang so sweetly from out 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 love's magic were Mollie and I. For I'd told her my love well, you all know the way, Since when heart thrills to heart there needs little to say. And there she was walking close up to my 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 my Mollie I wed! I wore a brave suit, so smart and so tight, With Mollie beside me in soft, flowing white. 1 stepped proud as a king, but my love she looked shy, As we passed to the chapel, my Mollie and I. Oh! but I was a wife, enormities were first revealed. "If I were to call for a reward," wrotfc Burke, "it would be for the services in which for fourteen years, without intermission, I showed the most industry and had the least success I mean in the alfairs of India; they are those on which I value myself the most; most for the importance; most for the labor; most for the judgment; most for constancy and in the pursuit." Sheridan's speech in the House of Commons upon the charge relative to the Begums of Oude probably excelled anything that Burke achieved, as a dazzling performance abounding in the most surprising literary and rhetorical effects. But neither Sheridan nor Fox was capable of that sustained and overflowing indignation at outraged justice and oppressed humanity, that consuming moral fire, which nnrst 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 prejudice; 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 the intolerable incompetence of the tribunal. It is one of the inscrutable perplexities 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 premises that cover too much, and that in order to secure their right weight to justice and reason good men are forced sword of passion to fling the into the same scale. But these excuses were mere trifles and well deserve to be forgiyen when we think that though the offender was in form acquitted, yet Burke succeeded in these fourteen years of laborious effort in laying the foundations once for all of a moral, just, philanthropic and responsible public opinion in England with reference to India, and in doing so performed perhaps the most magnificent service that any statesman has ever had it in his power to render to humanity. two-edge- d V, ft EMBLEM CONTEST!

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 mother's son of Ireland. It bubbles out s pontaneously 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 drunkard. 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 phlegmatic German leads in the matter of drinking, but it is presumed that on account of this stolid disposition the Teuton does not so readily succumb to the inebriating eifects 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 withdrawn might not be out of place. Boys especially seem possessed of a desire to have a pistol or firearm of some description 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 w;ere frequent a ladyrwhcrwasa great worker, caw a gentleman 'entering the ball with a gun in his hand. She approached him and asked him for which table it was intended. 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 it at the lady and snapped it. A mutual friend saw him aud hastily interposed, telling him that he might be responsible for the death of some one. The man with the gun replied 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 unloaded, at any oiie. It is the "unloaded" gun that always shoots. - A.. O.'

This was coupled with the statement that members of the church who may have friends who have in New died in hotels or boarding-house- s 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 absolutely limited to Catholics. It is an interesting fact that the money contributed for the erection of Father Ducey's new chapel, with the exception t)f Jiis own contribution, has been given by persons outside of the Catholic faith.

The Insurance Companies Contemplate Withdrawal of Agents. SOCIAL HAPPENINGS OF THE WEEK Special Correspondence to the Kentucky Irish American. Frankfort, Ky., Feb. 4, 1899. Everything has been very quiet in political, business and social circles in the Capital City during the past week. Perhaps it is only the quiet that precedes the storm or the attention of politicians for the time being has been drawn to the dauntless young Senator from Kenton, who last week opened the campaign for Governor of Kentucky at Lebanon. The withdrawal of John Young Brown narrows the contestants down to Goebel, Hardin and Stone, and from now until the State convention meets the political pot will boil and Kentucky will have politics galore. The indications, are that Goebel is steadily gaining Senator strength every day, and unless something unforseen happens to prevent he will easily secure the nomination and eventually become Governor of the grand old Commonwealth of Kentucky. . The grand mask hop to be given by Division No, 1, Ancient Order of Hibernians, next Wednesday evening promises to be the grandest affair of the season. Quite a number of tickets have been sold already end over 300 invitations sent out in Frankfort and all over the State. A large crowd is anticipated and will be well taken care of by the Entertainment An orchestra of five pieces Committee. has been engaged and fine music is guaranteed. The last of the series of euchres was given by Young Men's Institute, No. 161, last Wednesday evening. Quite a large crowd was present and spent a most enjoyable evening. An elegant lunch was served at 11 o'clock, after which dancing was indulged in until 12:30 o'clock. The sacred concert to be given at the Catholic church next Thursday evening, February 9, will be one of the finest musical events witnessed in Frankfort in many days. The Church of the Good Shepherd choir will be augmented by several celebrities from Louisville and r kt.i-.- i i i i ii Html r tion (the Mother of God's church, Covington) in the Covington diocese, and nil who do not attend will miss o rare treat. The low price of admission, cents, should guarantee a twenty-fiv- e packed house. The concert is for the purpose of raising funds to pay for the handsome new organ recently purchased. Miss Lucille Tobin is visiting Miss in Lexington. Miss Mamie Roche, who has been the bright and attractive guest of her aunt, Mrs. M. A.

The citizens of Frankfort promise to shortly find themselves without protecintion from fire, as all the eighty-seve- n surance companies doing business in this city have decided to withdraw from Frankfort because the Circuit Court, now in session, fined each company $250 for formintr a trust. An effort will he made to organize a home insurance company at once. The euchre that was to have been given by Division No. 1, Ancient Order of Hibernians, last Wednesday, owing to the inclemency of the weather, was post' poned until after Lent. Two new memoers were initiated and seven proposed for membership at the meeting of the Ancient uruer ot Mioer- nians last Tuesday night. Messrs. C. B.
