Was Formed Great Enthusiasm Prevailed and the Unity Movement Henrtlly Indorsed William OBriens Sentiments on the Question of Anglo American Alliance ADDRESSED BY MANY PROMINENT MEN Recently in the County Donegal a branch of the United Irish League was formed under the most favorable circumstances Addresses were made by mem bers of Parliament and prominent clergymen and inspiring letters read from John Dillon Timothy Harrington and William RedmondGreat enthusiasm prevailed and a warm welcome was tendered Michael Davitt who made a stirring appeal for united action The following was his exhortation to unity and his sentiments on the question of an AngloAmerican alliance A United Nationalist Ireland means the wheeling into line again in the con test for home rule and land reform of the whole Irish race as in the eighties be fore dissension split the ranks and dis banded the mighty force which fought for Ireland Without the union at home which will enlist this cooperation from among our race abroad we will struggle in vain against united foes But with our people once again in organized phalanx guided by reconciled leaders and inspired by the consciousness of and vided national strength no obstacle that is likely to cross the path of a movement so directed and sustained can stand for long between Ireland and National Leg islature and National Government in DublinWho are they who stand in the way nf this reunion I dont care to name names but I will say that whoever are if they do not stunt outof the way it is the dutyof the country to make them do so There is no longer anything to quarrel about among earnest Nationalists We are all for+ tH wldyst possiblelnneaauroofE Nationaliselfgoverriment that can be obtained we are all for complete inde pendence for all English political parties we are all for these principles and for What they mean and not for the claims of one set of leader or the huniillatiou of others We are for the protection and interests of Irelands rights and not for any ites or individuals and therefore in the name of Ireland and common sense what is there that should keep asunder men who yearn and work and strive for 6rmch a cause so universally believed in and upheld The defeats of 1889 and 1895 might yet come to be looked back upon by an Irish nation as blessings in disguise England made the bargain of an usurer with Ire land in both these measures Liberty was measured out to us in a niggard and jealous hand The spirit of commercial greed rather than that of justice and res titution can be traced in the restrictions and limitations which marked even the bill of 1895 But these measures served the useful purpose of propaganda with the slow thinkiug AngloSaxon The English have undergone a useful processor instruction and they may soon come to see much more of an imperial danger in withholding a just and generous measure of Home Rule from Ireland than they pretended they saw in 1895 in the pro posed concession of Mr Gladstones scheme to our people- Fellowcountrymen our cause has not receded except in so far as we ourselves are to blame for what has happened It is only halting on the way to victory and I its progress along the way to success only awaits the reunion of our people in the service of that progression We have great potential forces and opportunities on our side whenever we snake up our mind to fight again for principles and not for factions It is not n question between four millions of people in Ire land and the population of England There are at least twenty millions of the Irish race outside the shores of Ireland who will be ready to stand by us when ever they find us giving more time and attention to Irelands cause than to wrangling over dead issues This great force has to be counted by the enemies of Home Rule and the greater portion of it is found just in the country with which England is more anxious for an alliance than with any other nation in the world Mere then we have I assert the poten that factors of success America has done much for our people I admit But it can be said with greater confidence that the hardy militant race which has been bred under oppression and alien rule in Ire land has done more for the United States than any other European people who ever crossed the Atlantic The Irish have fought for America from Lexington to Santiago fought for her on land and sea against Englands forces and to uphold a united republic which England lipped to disrupt and destroy they have labored too in all the fields of enter- priset and industry to make America what she bas now become the foremost and moat WMltliy of the worlds great na bona All this Mrrioe ghesour race a greater claim upon Americau gratitude than twenty liberated Cuba Orahuu dred emancipated Philippines could ad vance We can not it is true ask in reason that the United States should come to Irelands help in her struggle for liberty in the way in which Spanish rule was swept away in the Antilles but we can both in reason and fair play appeal to our own kith and kin across the Atlantic to see to it that all their influence shall be pitted against any alliance which England may want Amer ica to consent to unless England will on her own part agree to do for Ireland what America has accomplished for Cuba Our appeal will not be dismissed or unheeded We have only got to pull ourselves together at home to put an end to the divisions which Irelands foes are fomenting and brighter hopes and greater forces than ever encouraged the strife for Irish liberty will cheer our people and our cause on to speedy victory I LEXINGTON News Notes From the Bluegrass MetropolisArgonaut to Start Again Special Letter to the Kentucky Irish American LnXINGTON Feb 17Tbe gay social

Glance Irish Boys Used the Walls of an Ohl Church as a Iland Ball Alloy TRIP TO BODENSTOWN CHURCHYARD The story of the pilgrimage of several IrishAmericans to tin grave of Wolfe Tone proved so interesting last week that it is decided to give two more chapters as they were written by Mr Michael CavanaghA power Ill let you know Birney Ryan- A half hours ride brought us to Sal lins about twelve miles from Dublin On the platform amongst the heterogenous crowd of travelers porters car drivers and idlers the most conspicuous individ ual was the omnipresent Peeler There he stood posed for inspection with all his paraphernalia of Enfield rifle saber bayonet black belts brass buttons and jaunty cap its glazed strap supporting his smoothly shaved chin The three vs on his sleeve denoted his rank while his supercilious air of authority evinced his determination of duly sup porting his dignity as the embodiedrep resentation of British rule in Ireland Surveying the newly arrived passen gers with a quick but scrutinizing glance his natural instinct led him to view our group with particular suspicion and we were deemed worthy of a more elaborate inspection His keen eye marked all the peculiarities of our ap pearance From the cut of our meguls to that ofour boots was noted in his mental mcmoraudom book as carefully as if he fully expected to have us figuring in Her Majestys Hue and Cry at no distant day His scrutiny ended he assumed a selfsatisied expression and sauntered carelessly to where we stood engaged in wringaear toLco neyusToour destination his object evidently being to add the testimony of his ears to th tof his eyes But here he was destined to disap pointment The quick eye of the garvey hind noticed his furtive approach in our rear and without giving him time to ad vance with earshot he directed our at tention by a familiar nod and a signifi cant Fine day sargeant Seeing his little game was blocked the baffled func tionary turned on his heel and and with drew to the evident satisfaction of time grinning car driver This jolly fellow was a good specimen of his class as they are to be met in the rural districts Without the slangy glibness of his city confrere he proved him self no ways deficient in native country wit Though not bashful when soliciting our custom he was not obtrusive Nat urally of a social and communicative disposition he wishes to feel his wayas it were before venturing on what per baps might be considered too much familiarity If he could only ascertain who we were he could shape his con duct accordingly It did not take long to satisfy his curiosity on that point Our looks of approval at the way in which he thwarted the sargeant encouraged him and we were no sooner underweight for Sallins village than he made his first approaches with Thim peelers bad scran to em do be pokin their noses everywhere Not a stranger can come across one of em but his measure will be taken all as wan as if he was a deserter with thirty shill Hrs reward for capturin him It makes me both mad an ashamed to see the im pidence o the fellows Well my boy so far as we are concerned their attention doesnt matter a traneen for iiff they dont like our looks theres no love lost between us These remarks of ColI Smith satisfied him and he lost no further time in circumlocution but opened his mind at onceTheyre very suspicious of people of yere appearance of late sir forIf I might make so bouldI was thinkin ye might be gintlemen from America commie to visit the Quid Sod once more Yes some of us are from America but were all as Irisli as yourself from the shirt in and the heart out Mushol wasnt meself right Wisha give me the hand Yerp welcome home an I wish there was fifty thousand of yere sort come with ye Being assured that his laudable wish was heartily reciprocated he pushed his inquiries further eigerly exclaiming An tell me now are ye the men that came over with MacMamis Some of them Wisha glory be to the Lord but tis Im proud to have ye on me carl Ill be bail now tis out to Wolfe Tones grave yere goin I seen gintlemen from Dublin out there sometimes an I renumber whin the tombstone was first put over him I was only a

rayson why he was on the shaughran himself at the time along with a good many more United Min Well God be marciful to em all poor Mr Toal was time last ofemit in these parts an he died in the year o the starvation like many a stronger man The cold churchyard was visited often that year But here we are in Sallins sir I didnt bestow particular attention on time appearance of the village as we were driven briskly through it but I think it consistedof a single broad street not very compact in appearance most of the houses being of it single story and thatchedAbout the center of the village we halted for refreshment at a public house kept by a man named John Magrath We were scarcely inside when the driver informed the people of the place who we were and where we were bound to The information was received with unmistakable delight by them all Mr Magrath and his handsome young sister being most demonstrative in their welcome They pressed us to take dinner with them on our return from Bodenstown an invi tation which we were regretfully forced to decliner but we promised to call on our way back as a matter of course so after many handshakes anda parting God nless ye and the work ye are en gaged inl we resumed our journey by way of the Clane road- CHAPTER IV In Bodenstown churchyard there is a green grave And wildly along it the winter winds rove Small shelter I ween are time ruined walls there Vhemi time storm sweeps down on the plains of Kildare Davis A half hours drive through a level well cultivated country brought us to our destination The little churchyard at Bodenstowu is situated on the right of the road going north from Sallins As I sat on that side of the car I was the first of our party over the style I remembered having read in Madders United Irishman that Tones grave was close by the south wall of the ruin in the center of the churchyard so in half a minute I reached it and before any of my companions hal joined me I was in possession of the only green thing that grew on the grave a plant of marshmallow I kept this muchprized relic for several years until it crumbled into dust When the rest of the pilgrims came up we stoodJor moment silently reading the iinscription preparediby Thomas Da visfor time tombstone which himself and his friends had placed over what until then hind been a green grave Then moved ba common impulse all knelt- simultaueouslyamid prayed for his soul who had brought a soul into Ireland Having reverently honored the memo ory of the dead hero whose dust lay beneath that monumental slab we contemplated more leisurely the grave and its surroundings Bodenstown churchyard is one of the smallest I have seen in Ireland being not much more than an acre in extent Though very ancient and conse quently the burial place of countless generations it contains but few monu mental records there not being a score of headstones visible at the time of our visit It is bounded on three sides by fertile fields and on the fourth by the high road The ruin in the center of the churchyard is like the enclosure of very limited dimensions the space inside its walls forming a rectangle of about fifty by twenty feet Its walls seemed consider ably higher within than without owing no doubt to the ground outside having been gradually raised by the numerous inter ments The ruin was roofless and seemed bare of ornament save the tufts of half withered grass and the clusters of darkgreen ivy that overtopped its weatimer stained walls and rustled mournfully in every passing breeze I know not whether the building was originally a church or an abbey Dr Madden says it was an abbey but if he is correct the community it har bored must not have been very numerous I observed with a feeling of regret and indignation that the interior of the ven erable edifice lord been evidently used as a ballalley bv the boys of the vicinity but consoled myself with the sage apoph thegem Boys will be boys Tones monument was then a heavy limestone slab about six incites in thick ness It stood quite close to the center of the south wall of the ruin It was ele vated about a foot from the ground and rested on six stone supporters It bore the following simple and suggestive in scription f THEOBALD WOLFE TONE Born June 20 1703 Died November 19 1793 FOR IRELAND w- In less than two years after time erec tion of this monumental stone Thomas Davis was laid to rest in Mount Jerome Fortyeight saw most of his colaborers scattered over the globe and for a long time thereafter Bodenstown was but rarely visited by strangers Consequently the Martyrs Graver received but little attentionand that little only when some 1 local admirer attendingja funeral in the lonely little churchyard went to draw hope and inspiration front the sacred spotAt the time of our visit the ground be I COl1JJ DONIIfIRD1AO GOOD WORK r Done hy time IrishAmerican Society at Its Meeting Thursday Will Arrange for a Grand Cole

members At tine next meeting a com plete report will be made and final action taken The initiation ceremony will be i short and impressive and will add much to the interest of the sessions During the evening it was developed that there is a lively sentiment to so amend the laws as to make ample pro vision for members who may be so un fortunate as to be sick or out of employment and it is very probable that some important changes will be made in the near future that will largely increase the field of usefulness of the IrishAmerican Society Short but interesting talks were made by President

Louisville City Railway Company has done nothing for the comfort of its patrons much less if the expression can be used for its employes But the employes have to earn bread and butter some where so they must needs work for the Street Railway Company Here is a corporation that gets the right of way over any street or streets in the city of Louisville for the asking while similar corporations have to pay large sums in other cities for the same privilege What has this railway company done for Louis ville Nothing save to sap the nickels out of the public pocket Street railway traffic is a great and growing business No credit nickelri or you walk and the employes take what they can get or else do without work- President Minarys success as a business O man is owing to his motto It is not what a man is worth It is what you can get him forOn this motto he made himself useful as a clerk as Superintendent as General Manager and Presi dent He has treated Councilmen and Aldermen in the past in the same way as the employes he pays by the day Now the Louisville City Rail way Company promised the public to put conductors on the cars They tlflye XfiedQiti the promise on only twdlmes The company should have the common decency to protect its men from the severe cold by having vesti bules for the protection of its motor men but when such a bill was in troduced in the Legislature the bill was lost or shuffled or disap pearedBut then there are so many i things the Street Railway Company might do but does not do for the comfort of its patrons that a complete list would grow tiresome Another injustice perpetrated up jonthe public is that of compelling r one citizen to pay higher fare than another Poor boys and girls who are forced to work in shops and stores for a living are taxed five cents while well paid school teach ers and children of wealthy parents are allowed to ride for half that sum If this is not discrimination what is it The report of the Presi dent showing a net earning of 24 000 in addition to paying all the i expenses of changing the system and extending the lines is evidence that the Louisville Street Railway t Company can well afford to carry working people both morning and evening for the same price that it does the fortunate scholar and teacher IMPERIALISM The question of imperialism is at the present time being widely dis cussed and we regret to say favored 1 by many journals whom we had expected to be on the sideof the people In an article in the New York Journal William Jen nings Bryan gives expression to views that none of the local papers would pnblish and from which we make extracts which should receive L the careful consideration of our readers Among other things he tells that John Morley the English t statesman in a recent speech to his constituents uttered a warning which may well be considered by our people He said Imperialism brings with it militarism and must bring with it militarism Mili tarism means a gigantic expendi tt1redai11ojur it means an in l L tI crease in government of the power of aristocratic and privileged classesI Militarism means the profusion of the taxpayers money everywhere except in the taxpayers own home and militarism must mean war And you must be much less well read in history than I take the Liberals of Scotland to be if you do not know that it is not war that I hateful demon ofwar but white winged peace that has been the nurse and guardian of freedom and justice and wellbeing over that great army of toilers upon whose labor upon whose privations upon whose hardships after all the greatness and the strength of em pires and of states are founded and are built up- Militarism is so necessary a comp nion of imperialism that the President asks for a 200 per cent increase in the standing army even before the people at large have passed upon the question of aunex ationMorley says that imperialism gives to the aristocracy and to the privileged classes an increased influ ence in government Do we need to increase their influence in our governmentSurely are potent enough already He calls attention to the fact that the toiler finds his hope in peaceful progress rather than in wars uncertainties Is it strange that the laboring classes are protest ing against both imperialism and militarism Is it possible that their jrotestwill be in vain Imperialism has been described as the white mans burden but since it crushes the wealth producer beneath an in creasing weight of taxes it might with more propriety be called the poor mans load- OOLDSf1ITlj AND THE NEWS The News has

medium and he knows that the best way to do that is to make it cheap and readable to give the news and nothing but the news He has surrounded himself by a capable staff of news gatherers men who have worked for years in the local newspaper field and who know a news item when they see it and know how to handle it in newspaper style Mr Goldsmith says he does notJJ intend to make his paper sensa tional but intends to publish any thing that is permitted to happen That is just what the public wants He does not intend to enter into any fight between rivall editors be cause he does not believe the pub lie cares whether one editor likes the editor of a rival paper or whether the editors are all at dag gers ends He wants tojmake the News a success That is all he cares about HONOR AND SAFETY It is foolish for the English Lib eral party to talk of the sacrifices which they have made for Ireland They haveHad an eequivalent rot allll- J Ei that they have done for that coun try in the continued support of the Irish members So said John Morley in a recent important address to his constitu cuts at Montrose Scotland How often since 1832 he asked has the Liberal party had a majority with out the Irish Was it not the Irish who helped the Liberals pass the English and the Scotch parish councils act and gave them three years of office and power and emol uments and decorations These are embarrassing questions for ungrateful politicians but Mr Morley puts still another What did the Irish get for these three years of devotion Nothing he answers but three years of what he calls three years of considerate administrationIn to the assertion that English people will not deal further with the Irish question until the present scheme of selfgovernment has been thoroughly tried Mr Morley takes a strong if novel position When had Ireland ever asked England for local selfgovernment She had always asked for home rule The Liberal party always said she ought to have it England denied her demand and gave her instead what she had not demanded- It was a great mistake for now the Irish are sure to use a machinery for which they did not ask as a means to further home rule for which they did askand can the Liberals honorably refuse to help them press their demand As far as the Irish question is concerned Mr Morley declares and all right minded people will agree with him that the path of party safety for the English Liberals is the path o party honor Mr Morley has always been a true friend to Ireland and never was his friendship so opportune as at this present crucial hour in Irish affairs says the Boston Pilot AN IRISH EMIGRANTS REVERIES Well boys when Im alone in flue even ing- Iofteii feel sad I musfovvh I When youre all away on lifes mission Aud I am here almost alone I sit by this fireside and ponder When the day and its labors are oer And I think of that home in Old Ireland Which I never shall see any more I think of the days ere I left there To come to this strange foreign land And an image arises before me Of our own native tidebeaten strand Again I can see after nightfall By the silvery light of the moon Tower up in the gloom of the distance The castle of Nochnagaroon I can see if strolling around there The pathway which led by its side On its walls I have often sat watching The ebb and flow of the tide Not far to the north is Dunlichee Which according to stories of old Had somewhere not far from its case ment Most wonderful treasures of gold I have wandered around the old castle Whose origin no one can tell And it seems in its lone situition Like a place where deep mysteries dwell Its walls are corroded and broken Its corridors shrouded in gloom It appears when around there at twilight Like a lonely unfrequented tomb There often at eve I sat watching Oer the waves the old cormorant sail The raven the puffin and sea gull Around it their sorrows bewail The sea breezes sigh through the grasses I That grow round its mouldering pile As if sighing and sadly lamenting The fate of the Emerald Isle I remember the mill and the cottage That stood by the side of the stream But the morning I left them forever Seems now like a fastfading dream I remember the bob and beside it The lawn where at hurley we played The beach and steep cliffs of Goleen Along which I often have strayed I remember a place called Klllraten The Sundays we spent by the sea And the day that myself and Tim Maney Got into a fight in Kilkee remember with something like sorrowI The days that I spent around there And the times that we all went together To Carrigaholt to the fair I remember Kilrush by the Shannon The same as pf old it appears But I now could behold if once back there The changes of forty long years Thus fancy quite often deceives me And holds up those scenes to my view The pleasures and sports of my boyhood The friends and companions I knew But I know that it all now is altered My friends and companions are gone That home is replaced by another Besides which the Shannon rolls on And if I could revisit that island That cottage which oboe I called home There is none who wottM it recognfee me- A atranger around there

PACK neath the tombstone was dry and hard and judging from the feathers scattered around it had apparently become a favor ite resort for domestic fowls But with the advent of Fenianism a reaction in national sentiment set in It was manifested in various ways but per haps in no instance was it so strongly exhibited as in the devotion shown to the memory of Irelands patriot dead The lone grave in Bodenstown became again the resort of enthusiastic pilgrims Few Nationalists visiting Dublin returned home without going to see it In the metropolis a permanent organ ization which was named after the Martyr for Ireland made an annual pilgrimage with music and banners to where his dust reposes- It is to be regretted that a sentiment so commendable in itself should lead to abuses that all rightminded patriots must condemn Some overzealous pil grims in their eagerness to possess mementoes of their visit to Bodenstown resorting to the pernicious example of carrying off portions of the tomb itself Those pioneer Iconoclasts unfortunately found so many imitators that in a few years the original monument became so mutilated that the members of the Dub lin Wolfe Tone Band deemed it advisa ble to have it replaced by a new one of similar design This was fenced in by a suitable iron railing erected by the Men of Kildare to protect it from future patriotic depredators We too felt desirious of possessing some mementoes of our pilgrimage and accordingly I was deputed to cut for each of my companions a branch of ivy from that portion of the ruined wall imme diately over the tomb
