KENTUCKYIRluilAMERICANVOLU- ME if iI f i HNO6 LOUJSVILLE SATURD 1tFEBRUARY 11 1899 PRIG FIVE CENTS MEMORIES Recalled a Recent Exchange of Letters Between Old Friends Both Were IrishAmericans Living In Washington fifth Louisville Story of n Visit to Wolfe Tones Grave Made ThirtySeven Years Ago TERRENCE B MACMANUS FUNERAL Nearly thirtyeight years ago a party of IrishAmericans journeyed from the United States to Ireland there to lay at rest the remains of a patriot Terrence Bellow MacManus The funeral attracted attention both on the American and European continents The story of that funeral is wellnigh forgotten by many IrishAmericans who were living at that time and has probably never been heard of by many of the IrishAmericans of the present generation However there is living in Louisville an IrishAmerican who accompanied the remains from California to its last resting place in Glas nevin This fellow citizen was Mr Jeremiah Kavanagh who has for more than thirty years been a resident of Louisville but who at the time of the MacManus funeral was a resident of California He was then in 1861 en gaged in organizing the Fenian Brother hood on the Pacific slope Some day he will probably tell the story of that funeral and the attending incidents Recently Mr Kavanagh received a letter from a friend and namesake though they do not spell their names alike Mr Michael Cavanagh of Wash ington D C Messrs Kavanagh and Cavanagh both traveled across the ocean with the MacManus remains Neither has seen the other for many years and doubtless each one had mourned the other as dead until an accident revealed to the Washington IrishAmerican that his onetime California namesake was living and well in Louisville Mr Cavanagh wrote to his old friend Kavanagh The letter was promptly an swered ThIS IlPPeJ1 d tatfen 1Jev rat ulonthTI10gh the i rost has touched the heads of these two old friends they are both still Irish patriots at heart Mr Michael Cavanagh is employed in the War Department at Washington In fact he has been In the same department more than thirty years Besides this regular employment he writes for maga zines and papers principally on Irish or IrishAmerican affairs He is something of a poet too and writes as fluently in the Irish language as most Irish Ameri cans are capable of writing in the Eng lish language His favorite pen name is ClochanCuinne or in English Cor ner Stone Well among other things that Michael Cavanagh has written is a series of sketches about the trip through Ireland on the occasion of MacManus funeral Particularly interesting are the sketches of this Washington IrishAmerican on the trip to Bodenstown churchyard where the remains of that other Irish patriot Theobald Wolfe Tone are buriedIt well for IrishAmericans and par ticularly young Irish Aniericans to know something of Ireland its history its poets statesmen and soldiers The best way to gain this information is to read an IrishAmerican paper that is interested in giving its readers this kind of news and it was for just such a paper that Mr Michael Cavanagh penned his Memor fats of the Green Isle about nine years ago It is hardly possible that they have ever seen the light of day in Louisville up to the present time These sketches are bright old yet ever new and they have a flavor of the Irish soilThe first of the series is more or less introductory Here it is- CHAPTER I I I will go to the lonely graveyard near time pleasant fieldof Kildare And heroyoungloneJoseph Brenan November 9 1801 I shall ever regard as one of the most eventful days of myI life for it witnessed the accomplishment- of a longcherished desirethat of look fag upon the grave of Irelands greatest revolutionary organizer Theobald Wolfe ToneIt was the day preceding that on which the mortal remains of a kindred hero Terrence Bellow MacManus were to be confined to their final resting place Iin Irelands national necropolis Glasnevin Prom his temporary grave by time shores of the far Pacific he had been dis interred by loving compatriots who had faith in the cause for which lie risked his life and lost nearly all that could make life dear and who also believed In the resurrection to national life of the land he loved sti well To gratify the last heartfelt longing of their brother exile as well as to aid In awakening their native land front the torpor which to some of her less hope fur children seemed political death fyoM practical enthuwarti the Califon tiian Fenians conceived and wiled out UfeVsubHm idea of magnetizing their sleeping Queen by laying lpott1tel Jxv son the true hearth throbbed toi proudly for her in its freshness and prime and which pined and broke in sor row and despair at what its owner deem cherished ed an eternal mother separation from his fondly The pious work was all but completed The patriots remains had been conveyed across a continent and two oceans to hi Isle of Destiny For ten days and nights they had been waked at home The grave had been dug in which they were to lie on the morrow but ere they left the Rebel of Fortyeight to sleep in Irish clay the exiles who accompanied him on his homeward journey deter mined to pay the homage of their devo tion to the principles which he inculcated in life and death by making a reverential pilgrimage to the grave of the great revolutionary apostle whose faith he preached and who like him died for IrelandAs little party of IrishAmericans were preparing to start from the Shel bourne Hotel on their loving mission it was unexpectedly reinforced by another exiled pilgrimMr Kellya native of Waterford but for many years a resi dent of Manchester England This truesouled Irishman having signified his intention of forming a delegation of one from his expatriated countrymen in Manchester he had been furnished with a letter of introduction to me by a dearly beloved townsman of mine the Reer end John Tracy who felt confident that it would insure the bearer a cordial re ception It not only fulfilled its object so far but caused Mr Kelly and myself to feel at once as if we were oldacquaint ances linked together by the mutual friendship we entertained for the patriot priestWhen I left uiy old home twelve years before John Tracy was one of a band of Cappoquin boys studying nt the cele brated school of Mclleray several of whom have since become distinguished ornaments of the Irish missionary church celebrated alike for their efficiency and zeal in propagating the faith in foreign lands and for their loving devotion to their own dear isle The Most Rev Michael Keane D D Holy

delight over a landscape embracing the most distinguishing characteristics of Irish scenery and no less rich in historical associations than in natural beauties Behind us underneath its dim canopy of smokeclouds lay the ancient city with its monuments of glory and of shame its plundered fanes and martyrs graves its barracks and its prisons its magnificence andsqualor its desecrated forumwhere the money changers fill the places of Grattnn Curran and their illustrious compatriots its castle for centuries the abode of red handed murder and blackhearted trea chery at present a sink of depravity

rippled beneath the bridge that spans the famous Ath Cro iiunloody Ford so called from the slaughter in flicted there on the English of the Pale by the valiant King Art MacMorrough in the beginning of

surpassed the receptions tendered all other New York regiments rolled into one New York has witnessed but two grea popular demonstrations in connection with the present war One was the fare well to the Sixtyninth nine months ago and the other was the welcome home to the same organization Preparations for the welcome had been making for days The regiment was ex peeled to arrive at 10 oclock in the morn ing At that hour the citizens were ready for them At 10 oclock a telegram was receive- at the Mayors office from Col Duffy at Syracuse stating that the train had been delayed slightly At the Pranllin street ferry station of the West Shore railroad a notice was posted that the regiment would arrive at 1 oclock The great crowd at the station received this Information with a groan but did not leave The waiting organizations after a con sultation decided that it was useless to go home and return again and simply broke ranks The crowds in and around City Hall Park did not preceptibly de crease at any time They simply under went a series of changes in personnel The city was a gaily fluttering wilderness of flags and bunting andwherever the red white and blue was flung to the breeze the green of Erin floated by its dIl an opportunity to get at the enemy did not in the least temper the ardor of their reception They did well what they had to do and were ready to fight at the drop

office in Park place The crowd was tremendous The tens of thousands that are traveling toward the Brooklyn bridge and the ferries at that hour waited to see the show and to lift their voices It was a gorgeous and brilliant specta cle more brilliant than if it had taken place in daylight for as soon as it was known that the Sixtyninth must march after nightfall fireworks were secured Roman candles rockets and red fire The Irish World had suspended its beautiful Irish flag flanked OIL either side by American flags over the street and at this point the street was choked with humanity when the head of the procession passed As the splendid regiment passed under the green banner the crowd cheered with deafening roars time and again Every company as it swung past received a hearty greeting and the faces of the sturdy soldiers beamed with smiles of appreciation Father Daly the beloved chaplain trudged along with his boys and as time crowd caught light of him he was cheerer heartily- As the mounted police turned into Mail street the cheers of the crowd could be heard down Broadway There were ever so many bands and they played with tremendous vigor The stirring strains of Wearing of the Green Klllarney and all the tunes dear to Irish hearts mingled with patriotic American airs City Hall Park was really a blaze of glory when the procession marched across it Red fire was kept burning at short intervals the heavens were brilliant with rockets aeriel bombs and cannon added the splendor of noise The veterans of the Sixtyninth1 men who carried tattered faded battleflags of the civil

expected that Archbishop Cor rigan would review the troops at St Pat ricks Cathedral but owing to the late ness of the hour he could not be present and Father M J Layelle stood in his stead with uncovered head on the steps of the edifice and watched the boys go- by At Fiftyfirst street the procession marched east to Madison avenue and down that thoroughfare to Thirtyfourth street and east again to Park avenue and then along Fourth avenue to the Sixtyninth Regiment Armory An enormous crowd hind packed itself around the armory and there was a rush for the doors by friends and relatives as soon as the men had entered Chief of Police Devery was at the door with a squadand as soon as he saw that the place was filled and that there was danger in admitting any more he gave the order to clear the street in front of the armory This only served complicate mattera and the policemen had finally to draw their clubs and by main force push the mass back into Third avenue It was all splendid and tremendous for no regi neat coming home crowned with the honors of war with the record of mighty battles was ever so greeted as was the Sixtyninth which gave nine months of time and a spirit that longed for fighting to the United States- DRAMATIC SOCIETY BANQUET A banquet in honor of Mr H W Newman was given by the Leo Dramatic Society on Thursday at their rooms Eighth and Grayson streets Many

steamer flie had become a stowaway on board because he had no money to pay for his passage had been dragged from his con cealment after the boat was out at sea and with kicks and curses set to earn his passage by shoveling coal Ifas seems certain Sir Thomas Lipton comes to visit the United States this year it will be under conditions so different that their bare recital beggars the old tales of wealth and power won by white magic and the wands of the fairies The stowaway boy will return as a knight of Great Britain as a member of one of the most aristocratic yacht clubs in the realm charged with the purpose ofwinning the Americas cup as the friend and associate of the Prince of Wales and the Duke of York as the merchant magnate whose ships sail every sea and whose laborers till and toil

first cable flash of news from the struggling yachtsNo can surpass in interest the truth about this man who has passed al most ata leap from the grime of the stowaway to manymillioned splendor and who still on the threshold of middle age looks forward to almost limitless in j crement of wealth Very young the boy worked in Glas gow where his parents lived as a mes senger at sixtyone cents a week educating himself in the night school He ran away to this country crossing in the steerage and worked two years on South Carolina plantations It was not longII after the war there was no money down there He was seventeen years old when he gave it up and walked to Charleston and took a stowaways dusty berth for New York 1 In that city he earned enough to buy a steerage passage to Glasgow where he arrived at eighteen a man in stature and a man who had seen far countries and new ways and had kept his eyes open I have always felt that I got a good commercial training here said he when last in the United States Liptons Irish parents had savings lftn They intrusted tbis money to the boy who had seen towns and men and whose eyes gleamed with the light of commercial contest He opened a small shop in which he was the only salesman accountant and window dresser the entire force Sir Thomas Lipton says he owes his success to advertising They say that inithose early days he bought the two biggest i hogs in Scotland decked them gayly i with ribbons and led them through the streets labelled Liptons orphans Liptons monsters another story says and perhaps both tales are equally limb OUSt But advertise Lipton did from the first I believe In advertising lie says It Everybodynimble they have rolled far The shop grew and presently there were others The business went by leaps 1 and bounds Lipton worked he says twentyfive hours out of the twentyfour With the couquest of capital came the J opportunity to demonstrate his favorite projectto dispense with the middle man and bring producer and con sumer together His first large productive enterprise was the pur chase of plantations In Ceylon and Colombo where he raises tei coffee i and cocoa with native labor He is the i i 1

whom he must trust There are 420 Lipton shops in Great Britain all just alike sixty in London alone the others everywhere Every new Lipton shop is opened by a brassband concert In every one the employes wear the same uniform Everyone is decorated in the same rather showy style The prices in all are uniform and low All are lighted by electricity This is the unvarying rule In many a small town this requires time expense of a special lighting plant butit is worth the money In such a case the Lipton shop neighborsj jis a miine days wonder at first and a dis tinction always Sir Thomas Liptons fortune is called 150000000 It is only nineteen years since he stood behind a counter waiting on customers Last spring Lipton formed a joint stock company to take his London business The capitalization was fixed at 12600 000 of which only 5000000 were offered for sale This stock was subscribed for twentyfive times over The same sum hal previously been offered by Hooley and refused Lipton is his own pro moterLipton may have been relieved of some of his labors and responsibilities by the change in his business He is able to en joy such leisure as conies to him He is of medium height but scr slender and sinewy that he looks taller He dresses neatly not with the gaudy ostentation of Barney Barnato He is erect alert a quizzical smile ever lingers on his thin lips a twinkle shines in his grayblue eye He can enjoy a joke This man is a democrat among mill ionaires He owns a beautiful country place at Osidge a palace our volatile and exclamatory British cousins call stand

the Americals cup there were in Britain certain proud aristocrats who sneered at him as not quite a gentleman dont you know The first gentleman of Europe came to the defense of its first merchant The Prince of Wales and the Dnke of York showed Lipton most friendly attentions The Princess of Wales sent him a diamond scarfpin at Christmas in her gratitude for his assistance with the jubilee dinner His cof Alexnithe Prince of Wales is sponsor for the three trustees who with Sir Thomas are to manage it There is no more sneering nowThe most cxtrardinary secrecy has been insisted upon in the planning and construction of the Lipton yacht Her metal parts have been made by Thorny croft and shipped to Harlan K Wolffs yard In Belfast The Shamrock will be an Irish boat and she will be sailed to winThe Lipton flag has never been hoist ed in vain says this boldsportsman He says that he is prepared to spend if necessary 60000 or COOOO to lift that cup The Shamrock is his sole property No syndicate was formed to build her Nor will there be any moan of unfair play from Sir Thomas Lipton if the Shamrock should come across the tine a beaten boat He is a sportsman as he is a merchant neglecting nothing to win success and leaving the rest to fortune He will be the keenest competitor that ever confronted American yachtsmen PRINTERS MEETING Refused to Withdraw From Central

meetings take more interest in the affairs bring ing back the laggards and adding many new members All this proves that a little adverse criticism is sometimes good for the soul The recent action of the society inI amending its laws made it the target of some of the newspapers which applied epithets and heaped denunciation upon prominent members and officers and the society This seenis to have awakened the very members it was intended to bray against the society by the charge that it had been torn from its moorings and was to be controlled and run in a way directly the opposite of its purpose and ob ject in the interest of individuals and partisans This naturally at tracted attention and caused iin- quiry by those opposed to any such move and who were it true would most certainly and promptly have abandoned it Their investigation proves that the cry of politics comes from those who are prompted more by partisan and selfish mo tives and fear of results detrimental to them than

Irishman nor any well posted and patriotic American ever had such an idea Ever since thee United States of America has shown the world that she was capable of holding her own England has want ed an alliance Pray God it may never come The dispatches relate that the reasons given for Englands desire for an alliance are First to support the United States in the war with Spain and another is to secure an open door in the far East the third point Ms to induce the United States to give England and the British colonies a preferential tariff for their products the fourth but by no means least point in the proposed alliance is to get the United States to guarantee the in tegrity of British possesions on the American continent In reference to this last point the London informant says This is the ulti mate object of Great Britain in promoting an AngloAmerican al liance as she realizes that the greatest danger lies in the eventual dissolution of her power in Canada An malice would prevent this and assure the peaceful perpetuation of the British empire as no other power is strong enough to attack Englands sovereJguty1Exactly j l England wants to enj tangle dhe United States into ani alliance that witf force the United o = States into war whenever England needs help but will not such an alliance prevent the United States from helping herself There is no doubt that the London correspondent told the truth but the whole business reminds one of a story concerning a wellknown IrishAmerican practicing at the local bar- Years ago he was struggling for a living Every one who came in contact with him admitted he had talent That is a mistake there was one a lawyer of many years standing who looked down upon him and gave him a cut wheneverr he could He was only an Irish man while the lawyer of several years standing had the blue blood of many generations of Kentucki ans in his veins The years rolled by and the Irish man had forged to the front rue lawyer of many years standing wa i still standing He had no recor- as a lawyer but he had a pedigree as long as a bluegrass thorough bred What did he do Why he went to the Irishman and offered to go into partnership accullluIbteds I adding to it every day while his I wouldbe partner with a thorough bred record had plenty of debts Titus it is with England She I assumed authority over the Ameri can colonies until the heroes of Revolutionary fame shook off the yoke Slue tried it gain in 1812 and illt the war of the relplhou loaned all the aid she could in an effort to dis rupt the Union England was a thoroughbred The United States was a nation of nondescripts many of these nondescripts were Irish But the United States forged to the front and became a power and then and not until then did England seek an alliance The United States can go it alone The telegrams say England wants an alliance in order to support the United States in its war with Spain The war with Spain is over The United States did not need England in that row The second point is to secure American aid in keeping an open door in the far East America can take care of herself in the far East and there is no reason why she should want to aid England The open door as far as America is concerned means an open door for Americans and at this stage of the game Americans are looking out for themselves Americans could gain nothing by maintaining- an open door policy for England The third point in these tele grams is to give England and the British colonies a preferential tariff for their products Huhl What about American products Is the United States Government to enter an alliance with the stepmother country in order to aid the land of cheap labor and prison products to compete with her workmen Not just yet Last but by no means least comes the Canadian question Eng land wants an alliance with the United States to prevent the United States from accepting the several Canadian provinces whenever they get ready to join the Union or perhaps to force the United States to make war upon her northern neighbors in case they should seek to form an independent government But there is still another reason that has not yet been mentioned in i the dispatches perhaps England is afraid that the United States in the preseut spaon ofexpansion Will VJioknowc SAFE OFFER The different street railway com panies of the country

previous efforts in favor ofrepeal were thrown into the shade in 1843 when OConnell abstained from attending Parliament and devoted himself to pro moting a series of monster gatherings in different parts of the country Prom the Tuam meeting in March to that at Tara in August there were thirty vast demonstrations Fortyeight thousand four hundred and twentyone pounds was subscribed during the year and OConnell expressed himself confident of gaining repeal within n short time I On Sunday October 8 1843 this series of meetings was to have been crowned by one at Clantarf which owing to the proximity of Dublin was expected to DON 1HLY International interesting surpass all the others in magnitude and importance but on the evening of the 7th a Government proclamation was is sued forbidding the gathering In order to prevent any disturbance or any com sion with the armed forces of the Gov ernment OConnell prompt dispatched messengers in all directions to tell the people to remain at home and make no attempt to assemble On October 14 war rants were issued for the arrest of Daniel OConnell and others for devising to raise and create discontent nnd disaffec tion among the Queens subjects In dignant protests against the action of the Government came from all quarters On November true bills were found by the grand jury and after various delays the traversers were put upon their trial at the Court of Queens Bench Dublin on January 10 1844 There were eleven counts in the long indictments The charges varied against each traverser Utterances at public meetings formed the principal evidence upon which the Government relied It is needless to say that there was not a single Catholic on the jury OConnell was escorted to the court by large crowds and almost in regal state nocom panied by the Lord Mayor and the Catholic Aldermen in their robes Time defense of the accused was conducted by the ablest lawyer ever engaged in any cause either in Ireland or England Besides OConnell and his son who appeared for themselves there were fourteen of the most eminent counsel of the time among whom were the famous Richard Lalor Shiel and Thomas OHagan who years afterward became Lord Chancellor of Ireland the first Catholic who was per mitted to hold that office since the perfidious violation of the treaty of Lim erick The closing speech for the defense was made by OConnell and seas one of his most masterly efforts Among other things he said- I do not stand here my own client I have clients of infinitely more impor tance My clients in this case are the Irish people njy client is Ireland and I stand here the advocate of the rights and liberties and constitutional privileges of the people My only anxiety is lest their sacred causetheir rights to independent

motives I am con scious of the inestimable value of the object I had in view tbe repeal of the union I own to you icall not endure that union it was founded upon the grossest injustice it was basedupon time grossest insult the intolerance of Irish prosperity From the day I first entered time arena ofpolitics until the present hour I have never neglected an opportunity of im pressing upon the minds of my fellow countrymen the fact that I was an apostle of that political sect who held that liberty was only to be attained under such agencies as were strictly con sistent with the law and the constitu tion that freedom was to be attained not by the effusion of human blood but by the constitutional combination of good und wise menby perseverance in the course of tranquility and good or der and by an utter Abhorrence of via tense and bloodshed It is my proudest boast that throughout a long and eventful life I have faithfully devoted myself to the promulgation of that principle and without vanity J can assert that I am the first public stag who ever pro claimed it Other politicians have said Win your liberties by peaceable means if you cant but there always was R dernitre

money 30000000 raised every year in this country not to fructify it not to employ the people of the country not to take care of the sick and poor or desolate but 30000000 are transplanted to foreign

years Can you in conscience encour age this There is a cant that agitation prevents the influx of capital What iis the meaning of that We do not wantt English capital leave us our own 30000000 nnd we shall have capital iiu abundance We do not want that left handed benevolence which would drain the country with one hand and let it int niggardly with the other There is another item which exhaust the resources of this country and thatt to the amount precisely of 10000000 an nually In the last year it was as low as 2500000 but whether the one or the other it is drawn out of this country never to
