We can not, it is true, ask in reason that the United States should come to Ireland's 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 America to consent to, unless England will on her own part agree to do for Ireland what America has accomplished for Cuba. Our nppeal will not be dismissed or unheeded. We have only got to pull ourselves together at home to put an end to the divisions which Ireland's foes arc fomenting, and brighter hopes and greater forces than ever encouraged the strife for Irish liberty will cheer our people and onr cause on to speedy victory.

The ould churchyard was visited often that year. But here we are in Sallins, sir." I didn't bestow particular attention on the appearance of the village as we were driven briskly through it; but I think it consisted of a single broad street not very compact in appearance, most of the houses being of & single story and thatched. About 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 wc,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 invitation which we were regretfully forced to decline but we promised to call on our way back, as a matter of course, so after many handshakes and a parting "God nless ye and the work ye are engaged in!" 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 rave; Small shelter, I ween, are the ruined walls there When "the storm sweeps down on the plains of Kildare. Davis A half hour's drive through n level, country brought us to our destination. The little churchyard at Bodenstown 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 "Midden's United Irishman" that Tone's grave was close by the south wall of the ruin m the center of the church yard, so in half a minute I reached it, and before any of my companions had joined me I was in possession of the only green thing that grew on the grave a plant of marsh mallow. (I kept this much-prizerelic for several years, un til it crumbled into dust. ) When the rest of the pilgrims came up we stood.for a moment silently reading the inscripUoiuprenaredbv.Thomasvisfor the tombstone his friends had placed over what, until then, had been "a green grave." Then moved by a common impulse, all knelt simultaneously and prayed for his soul who had brought "a soul into Ireland." Having reverently honored the memory of the dead hero, whose dust lay beneath that monumental slab, we content- plated 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 considerably higher within than without, owing no doubt to the ground outside having been gradually raised by the numerous interments. The ruin was roofless and seemed bare of ornament, save the tufts of grass clusters and the ivy that overtopped of dark-gree- n walls aud rustled its weather-staine- d mournfully in every passing breeze. the buildI know not whether ing was originally a church or an abbey.

I observed with a feeling of regret and indignation that the iuterior of the venerable edifice had been evidently used as y bv the boys of the vicinity, a but consoled myself with the sage apoph-thege"Boys will be boys!" Tone's monument was then a heavy limestone slab, about six inches in thick ness. It stood quite close to the center of the south wall of the ruin. It was ele vated about n foot from the ground and rested on six stone supporters. It bore the following simple aud suggestive in scription: d d which-himself'anhalf-witherball-alle- DONEGAL.

Addresses were made by mem bers of Parliament and prominent clergymen and inspiring letters read from John Dillon, Timothy Harrington and William Redmond. Great enthusiasm prevailed, and a warm welcome was tendered Michael Davitt, who made a stirring appeal for The following was his united action. exhortation to unity and his sentiments n on the question of an alliance: A United Nationalist Ireland means the wheeling fnto line again in the contest for home rule and land reform of the whole Irish race, as in the eighties, before dissension split the ranks ami disbanded the mighty force which fought for Ireland. Without the union at home from which will enlist this 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 undivided 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 a National Legislature and National Government in Dublin. Who are they who stand in the wayTif this reunion? I don't care to name names, but I will say that whoever are, if they do not stand out of the way, it is the duty of the country to make them do so. There is no longer anything to quarrel about among earnest Nationalists. We --Pare allifofjthewide6tiposdble!:iieauro-of- . ationai'Iselt-governmcnt mat can ue obtained; we are all for complete independence 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 leaders or the humiliatiou of. others. We are for the protection and interests of Ireland's 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 . f. i, . sucn a cause so universally oeneveu 111 and uolield? 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 Ireland 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 restitution, 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 Anglo-SaxoThe the English have undergone a useful process of 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 proposed concession of Mr. Gladstone's scheme to our people. 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 its progress along the way to success only awaits the reunion of our people in the sirvice of that progression. We have great potential forces and opportunities on our side whenever we make up our mind to fight again for principles and not for factions. It is not a question between four millions of people in Ireland 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 whenever they find us giving more time and attention to Ireland's 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. Here, then, we have, I assert, the potential 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 England's forces, and to uphold a united republic which England hoped to disrupt and destroy; they have labored, too, in all the fields of enterprise and industry to make America what he has now become, the foremost and most, wealthy of the world's great nations. All this service gives our race a greater claim upon American gratitude than twenty liberated Cubes or a hun Anglo-America. . slow-thinkiFellow-countrymen, Special Correspondence to the Kentucky Irish American. Franki-ohtKv., Feb. 17. Chairman Johnson will call a meeting of both the Democratic State Central and State Executive Committees, to be held at Lexington somewhere about March 1. A conference of all candidates for State offices will be held at the same time to ascertain their wishes in regard to the State convention. There seems now but little doubt that the convention will be held about June 1, but there will be a hot scramble over the place, and also as to whether county delegates shall be chosen by precinct primaries or county seat mass conventions. The full list of candidates for State offices up to date is as follows: For Governor William Goebel, Cov- ington; P. Watt Hardin, Harrodsburg, and William J. Stone, Kuttawa. For Lieutcnaut Governor J. C. W. Beckham, Bardstown; Thomas II. Hays, Louisville, and William P. Thome, Eminence. For Secretary of State John W. Head-- 1 ley, Louisville; Green R. Kellar, Carlisle, and C. B. Hill, Winchester. For Auditor Gus Coulter, Mayfield; June W. Goylc, Overton, nnd John C. Chenault, Richmond. For Attorney General James Andrew Scott, Frankfort; R..F. Peck, Lagrange; R. H. Tomliuson, Luncaster; W. M. Smith, Louisville, and R. J. Breckinridge, Danville. For Treasurer Wilbur F. Hagar, Ashland; R. C Ford, Middlesboro, and Gus W. Richardson, Meade county. , Bachelors' Club: D. P. Davis, W. C. Newman, W. A. Lutkemier, L. B. Jr.. L. A. O'Connor, John Meagher, Jr., Robert Craig, W. J. Lyter and D. J. McNanmri. These organizers hope to start the M.jY. 11. C. with fifteen or twenty charter members. A meeting will be held Sunday, February 20, to form an organization. Joe Blackburn for! Senator and a continuance of the Goebel election law are the issues in the Democratic Legislative primaries. Four Counties nominated Legislative candidates thus far, as follows: Franklin, South Trimble; Mercer, J. Morgan Chinu; Lexington, William Klair; Shelby, Sant W. Booker. All of these favor Blackbtirn and the Goebel law. Jackson Cox, aged twelve, of Pike county, and small for his age, was received at the penitentiary to serve two years for barn burning. Gov. Bradley will have him transferred to the State Reform School when that institution is put in operation. There are about ten children convicts between eleven and fifteen years, and all of them will'be transferred. t Attorney GeneraljTaylor has decided that several corporations consolidating into one, as in the case of the Lexington Railway Company, ure liable for the same organization tax as new corporations. The Lexington Railway Company will contest this ruling, as the tax, if imposed on it, will amount to about $ 1,000. , Wei-senbur- g, MEMORIES.

Bimey Ryan. A half hour's ride brought us to Sal- lius, about twelve miles from Dublin. On the platform, amongst the heterogenous crowd of travelers, porters, car drivers nnd idlers, the most conspicuous individual was the omnipresent "Peeler." There he stood posed for inspection, with all his paraphernalia of Enfield rifle, saber bayonet, black belts, brass buttons ami 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 embodied representation of British rule in Ireland. Surveying the newly arrived passen gers wall 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 eve marked all the peculiarities of our appearance. From the cut of our "meguls" to that of our boots was noted in his mental memoraudom book as carefully as if he fully expected to have us figuring in Her Majesty's "Hue and Cry" at no distant day.

After the reading and approval of the minutes of the preceding meeting a large number of new members were balloted for nnd admitted. Messrs. James Horan, Mike Lawler and Thomas Drewry reported upon the new form of initiation, which contains several very interesting features, which met with the unanimous approval of the members. At tne next meeting a complete rcjiort will be made and final action taken. The initiation ceremony will be short and impressive and will add much to the interest of the sessiotts. During the evening it was developed that there is a lively sentiment to so amend the laws as to make ample provision for members who may be so unfortunate 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 Society. Short but interesting talks were made by President Keenan, N. J. Sheridan, Thomas Garvey, James Horan, Michael Collins. M. W. Murphy and others, all favoring the adoption of measures that will make the society still more prominent and popular than it now is. The committee to whom was referred the matter of procuring a society button submitted a very handsome design, which was adopted.

John Kelly, one of the best known and of Louismost popular ville, who for several years has been residing in the country, has returned to the city, and is again engaged in business here at Seventeenth and Bank streets, where he is conducting a first-clagrocery. For sixteen years Mr. Kelly was a member of the Louisville police department, but attained most prominence in connection with the Louisville ball club, of 'which he was one of the promoters and principal stockholders, and there is e no one more popular with the players than he is. It was during his connection with the club that it wou the American Association penant. During the days of the Fenian movement Mr. Kelly was an enthusiast, going to Canada at the head of a number of men from this city, and his military ardor has been imbibed by his two sons, John and William, the former of whom is with the regular army in Havana, and the latter in the navy, being on the battleship Iowa now at Manila. He has a host of friends who will be glad of his return, because he is public spirited and always interested in everything that will advertise and advance the interests of Louisville. In connection with his grocery there is a cosy annex where his patrons will always find a full supply of the choicest and best spirits to be obtained in the market. Irish-Americass old-tim- J. M.

Chairman Barnctt, of the Republican State Central Committee, has written Republican leaders here that the Republican peace conference will take place in Louisville some time after May 1, probably the 9th or 10th. The reason it has not been called sooner is that Senator Deboe and the Republican Congressmen could not attend before the date mentioned. The weather the past week has been the coldest experienced in years. Last Monday morning the thermometer registered 33 below zero in Frankfort. There has been much cold and suffering among the poor people of this city. The grand mask ball given by Young Men's Institute, No. 101, last Monday evening, was a grand social success.

Mrs. Flynu was the mother of Rev. David J. Flynn, D. D,, Professor in Mt. St. alary "College, Emmettsburg; of Rev.

Deceased was a moat estimable woman and a de vout Catholic, and her entire life had been devoted to good work. The sympathy of the cotntrittuity goes out to the surviving relative. tion, his object evidently being to add the testimony of his ears to that of his eyes. But Here he was destined to disap pointment. The quick eye of the ''garvey" had noticed his furtive approach in our rear, and without giving htm time to advance with ear-shhe directed our by a familiar nod and a signifi cant "Fine day, sargeant!" Seeing his little game was blocked, the baffled functionary turned on his heel aud and withdrew, to the evident satisfaction of the grinning car driver. This jolly fellow wag a good specimen of his class as they are to be met in the rural districts. Without the slangy glib-nes- s 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 wished to feel his way( as it were, before venturing on what perhaps 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 under weigh for Sallins village than he made his first approaches with: "Tliim 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 shil-lin- 's reward for capturin' him. It makes me both mad an' ashamed to see the the fellows." "Well, my boy, so far as we are concerned, their attention doesn't matter a traueeti, for, if they don't like our looks, there's no love lost between us." These remarks of Col. Smith satisfied him, and he lost no further time in circumlocution, but opened his mind at once, "They're very suspicious of people of yere appearaucc of late, sir; for if I might make so bould I was thinkin' ye might be gintlemen from America come to visit the 'Ould Sod once more." "Yes, some of- us are from America, but we're all as Irisli as yourself from the shirt in and the heart out." "Mushal wasn't meself right? Wisha, give me the hand. Ye're 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, ei'gerly exclaiming: "An tell me now, nre ye the men that came over with MacManus?" "Some of them." "Wisha, glory be to the Lord! but 'tis I'm proud to have ye on me carl I'll be bail now 'tis out to Wolfe Tone's grave ye're goin'.

THE RAILWAY well-bein, that they have done for that country in the continued support of the Irish members. So said John Morley, in a recent important address to his constituents 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 emoluments 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 administration." In regard to the assertion that English people will not deal further with the Irish question until the present scheme of has been thoroughly tried Mr. Morley takes a strong if novel position. When had Ireland ever asked EngShe land for local 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 ask and 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 of 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. nt MIKE BURKE Announced as a Candidate for Councilman From the Tenth Ward. Mr. Michael Burke has announced himself as a candidate for Councilman from the Tenth ward. Mr. Burke has resided in the Tenth ward nearly all his life, and is a man than whom there are none better fitted to shoulder any honors his constituents may see fit to bestow upon him. He is a gentleman who is well known by all classes and counts his friends by legions, and it goes without saying that the man who beats him will know that "he has been in the race." His friends are already on the hustle for him, and say the voters of the Tenth ward who wish good government iu city affairs will make no mistake by seeing to it that Mike Burke, as he is familiarly known, represents them in the next Council.

But tnen tnere are so many things the Street Railway Company might do, but does not do, for the comfort of its patrons that a com plete list would grow tiresome. Another injustice perpetrated up on the public is that of compelling 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 expenses of changing the system and extending the lines is evidence that the Louisville Street Railway 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 discussed, and, we regret to say, favored by many journals whom we had expected to be on the side of the people. In an article in the New York Journal William Jennings Bryan gives expression to views that none of the local papers would pnblish, and from which we make extracts which should receive the careful consideration of our readers. Among other things he tells that John Morley, the English Siaiesmau, m u rtxeui spceuii iu 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." "Militarism means a gigautic expenditure, daily growing; it means an in Poor People.

John Clancy, M. P., addressed a large and enthusiastic meeting at Skerries for the purpose of selecting candidates for the County Council. A very interesting paper on "Overtaxation and Expenditure" was read at a meeting of the Statistical Society of Ireland by Mr. N. J. Synnot. Before Justices Murphy and Kenny, Maj. R. St. Leger Moore, of Killashee, Naas, and Charles Daly, were sworn in respectively High Sheriff Under Sheriff for the County Kildare. Speaking upon the "Growth of Economic Thought" at Belfast, the Right Hon. Horace Plunkett, M. P., said that there had been two Irelands. He said that this was the pity of the situation. A meeting for the purpose of securing the release of the remaining political prisoners was held at Smithfield Market, Dublin, January 29. Several members of Parliament addressed the meeting, which was largely attended. The inquiry into the working of the Irish intermediate education act was re sumed week before last in the Antient Concert Rooms, Dublin, when Father h. Healey, President of Dlackrock College, was the principal witness examined. Mr. Philip Byrne, of Galloping Green, has been nominated by the Blackrock Association as National Registration their candidate to represent the division on the Rathdown Board of Guardians, the electious for which will take place on March 25 next. At the first meeting of the new Dublin City Council, n resolution in favor of Home Rule for Ireland was submitted and led to a warm discussion, the Unionist members protesting against the intro duction of such a topic at the first meet ing of the new Council. The resolution was passed unanimously amidst cheers. An important meeting was held in the Young Men's Society Hall, Frankford for the purpose of selecting candidates to consider the most suitable person for the County Couucillorship, and also to select District Councillors for the four divisions of Frankford, Derrenboy, Killoly and Broughal. The Rev. J. Wheeler presided. annual meeting of the The thirty-fift- h Solicitors' Benevolent Association was held recently in Dublin. The chairman read several extracts from letters from widows of deceased members of profession showing extreme hardship and, in some cases, absolute want amongst widows and relatives of deceased members of the profession. At a meeting of the Tralee National Teachers' Association resolutions were passed in favor of enforcing the provision fif the compulsory education act and cou- - triOTiiigtbertrewVho averages adopted by the Commissioners-;-' Mr. Norris was nominated President, and t, of the Mr. O'Dounell organization for the coming year. The postal authorities have purchased three houses in East Bridge street, Ennis-killeon the sites of which a splendid new structure is to be erected. The local members had been untiring in their efforts to move the postal authorities in the matter, but it was only recently that they completed the preliminary negotiations for the purchase of the site. Speaking at Belfast, Lord Londonderry expressed the hope that the proposed Board of Agriculture for Ireland would be absolutely independent of Dublin Castle and in no way an offshoot, and would be presided over by a gentleman in the House of Commons who would be directly responsible to Parliament. He trusted the Government would see their way to deal generously with the board, so as to give it every opportunity for doing good to Ireland. At a meeting held in Portumna which was attended by delegates from Portumna, Woodford and the surrounding districts, on the motion of M. Hynes, seconded by Denis Kelly, the canditature of Laurence Taylor was approved of by an overwhelming majority. A small knot of the opposition have announced their intention of putting forward a rival candidate, but as the great bulk of the electors are pledged to Mr. Taylor, this move can only have the effect of creating disunion. An important decision, affecting as it does the jurisdiction of magistrates in dealing with cases of illicit distillation, has been given by County Court Judge Craig, sitting at Newtownbutler. The Crown appealed from a decision of the magistrates dismissing a case against a man named Rehill for having in his field nt Innishlaught a stillhead. Judge Craig held that "place or premises" in the act did not mean a field, but a house of some kind, not necessarily a dwelling house, He accordingly dismissed the case, as there was no evidence to prove that the defendant had a knowledge that the illicit whisky was on his land. At the first niettiug of the elected guardians of the Clogher Union, Hugh de F, Montgomery was by a large majority elected chairman of the board. Mr. &.tlrntAl1 ill, fnrmmr Minirman was flrrafti proposed, and his defeat is attributed to his action in deserting the other mem bers in their fight with the Local Gov ernment Board. Mr. Montgomery, the new chairman, read letters of congratu- n, city to the city boundaries is to be a penny, provided the distance is not more than a mile and a half. Where it is more than that distance twopence, but not more, can be charged, At the first meeting of the Wicklow Urban District Council an application was received from the Wicklow Monuments Committee for a site in the Market square for the erection of a monument to the memory of Billy Byrne, of Bally- liiauus, and other Wicklow heroes of 1708. Some weeks ago, when the old Conservative board was in office, a pro- posal to grant a site for the memorial created a great deal of heat at the meeting. On the motion of James Gerrou, seconded by Charles Davis, the commissioners unanimously acceded to the application of the Monuments Committee. Among recent contributions to the me. u morial fund is one of $240 from resident in Butte City, Mont. The remains of Patrick Walsh, whose rather premature death came as a painful shock to his mauy friends in Dublin, were interred in Glasucviu Cemetery. The late Mr. Walsh was a prominent member of the licensed trade, and was a zealous worker on the committee of that body. The funeral from St. Catherine's, Meath street, where his remains were placed, was large and most representative. A native of Boher, County Limerick, the deceased gentleman was strongly imbued with the patriotic insticts characteristic of his native country, and every movement in furtherance of Irish Nationand ality found in him a whole-hearte- d unswerving supporter. He was one of the selected candidates at the recent elections; he was also a thorough sportsman and a generous friend of the poor. The annual report of the Cork Chamber of Commerce is a most interesting one, and covers a wide area of ground. The Cork Chamber is one of the most active and broadniinded in Ireland, and there can be no doubt but its watchfulness and energy have done much to protect and foster trade interests in Cork. The report deals with a great variety of topics, including the Rosslare and Fishguard scheme, in relation to which Cork took a very active part; the postal service, the proposed Board of Agriculture and Iudustries, Haulbowline Dockyard, and a variety of other topics. On the question the Cork finance relations Chamber is essentially sound. William Lane, a prominent local merchant, made a capital President for the year under review, and D. J. Daly, as Secretary, continues to give the chamber that sound advice and energetic service which have done so inueli to make the chamber the success it is. Recently a public meeting of laborers and artisans of Middleton was held for the purpose of establishing a Labor association in the town. At the recent local municipal elections the labor candidates defeated the old commissioners. The Labor association has now taken steps to assist the working men of the district in the forthcoming contests for and various seats County Councillor-shion the local Riiral District Council. M. "Coglilan-presided- , and there was a very large attendance. It was pointed out by the gentleman who spoke that all candidates for seats on the Rural District Council would, so far as that district was concerned, be required to pledge themselves to home rule, a Catholic University, the removal of Irish financial grievances, and the release of the political prisoners. On the proposition of J. Power, seconded by P. J. Murphy, it was unanimously decided to start a branch of the Labor association in the town, and a committee and officers were appointed to carry out all the necessary preliminaries.

Little Red Ridinghood, as acted by Miss Rose Cunningham, impressed every one. Mr. J. S. Neighbors, as a clown, had more than his share of the fun. If Mr. C. J.

Miss Rose Huber, the flower-gir- l, had her flowers frozen on her way to the and sold icicles instead of flowers. Miss Tepe, as the little school girl, had the guests aguessing. Mr. Tracey, as a Whitecap and Mr. Straub, as a hearse-drive- r, were always in it. Henry Bloe-mer- 's impersonation of the Irish Mick was something fine.
