Kentucky Irish American. VOLUME II. NO. 9. question, he' thought the Government should have warning that if their efforts at University education were to produce n glorified ecclesiastical seminary under the bishops and priests, they would have none. If there was to be n Catholic University it should be a university governed by the laity. Any other university would be a mockery, a delusion, and n snare. He entirely agreed with Mr. Balfour's recent speech on the subject, where he .said it was the demand of the Irish people, and not the cry raised by the English people, that should be attended to. He thought Mr. Balfour would soon come to the conclusion that home rule should be granted because Ireland demanded it. Referring to the recent elections he said that on the whole they had every reason to look. upon the result with satisfaction. The great lesson to be derived from them was the necessity for organization. He strongly urged upon them the necessity of having a branch of the Independent League in every ward of the city. was, he declared, the true religion in politibs, and anything else was corrupt heresy. He advocated the extension of the city boundaries, and asked everybody who had leisure to attend the meeting in the Mansion House. The first year of his coroncrship were reported to him, and lost year the number had swelled to 500. Sudden deaths occurred principally among the laboring classes. The reason of this was that the working-me- n crowded into the houses that were vacated by city business men, who went to live in the 'townships, and sometimes from seven to ten families resided in these houses, that were originally built for one. Without the city the townships would die in a week. He agreed that every attention should be. paid to the prejudices and wants of the townships. If the intelligent men of the townships came together he did not see why they should not be able to come to some amicable settlement with the city representatives. He hoped that before twelve months they would see Dublin embracing an area that would contribute towards the greatest efficiency and the greatest good of the community.

At the meeting of the Irish Independent League, February 7, Dr. J. E. Kenny presided and addressed the league. He said nothing was foreshadowed of a very exciting character as far as Ireland was concerned in the coming session of Parliament. Last year the Local Government Bill was before Parliament. If the people of Ireland worked the Act in a proper spirit it would become a great instrument of good. Defective though it was in many respects, it could be worked for the advantage of the country. One effect of the measure, if carried out properly, would be to strengthen the demand for home rule. They no longer noticed the insulting remarks in the Queen's speech congratulating her subjects on the peaceful condition of Ireland. No allusion had been made in the speech to readjustment of the financial relations between Great Britain and Ireland. That indicated that the Government had made up their mind not to deal with the financial relations, and not in any way to disturb the gross system of robbery carried-oabKngland. But the Government could be compelled to deal with the question by the exercise of force. That force could be exercised by organization at home and through their Parliamentary representatives in Parliament. It was a duty of every man who pretended to represent Ireland to strive with his best efforts to compel the English Government to diswealth from this gorge their country and put an end at once to the system of robbery. It seemed to him inexplicable that at the recent conference a section of the Irish representatives, although invited, to the meeting, cognizant of what was to be done there and knowing well that their opinions and prejudices would be respected, thought fit to absent themselves. He did not know whether or not Mr. Dillon's abstention foreshadowed the event which they saw by that evening's papers iiad taken place; whether that was the first step in the completion of the political suicide which he commenced the day he betrayed Parnell, and which would find consummation when he disappeared out of public life. Certainly it was not the act of a patriotic man. The abstention of Mr. Dillon from that meeting presented the spectacle of a disunited party on this question. When a demand for redress would be made the English people coujd say: "You are not united as to whether there is a financial grievance to be remedied." He could not conceive a more unpatriotic attitude than that taken up by Mr. Dillon or one more generally detrimental to the cause of Ireland. Of course, if it foreshadowed his retirement it would have no significance. But if the retirement was a nolle episcopalij if it was meant as he believed it was to show his followers how badly they cpuld do without him, his abstention would have deep significance, Pressure could not be brought to bear on the Gpvernnvent without organization in the country. This country had never got anything but by agitation. Ireland should make herself a thorn in the side of the English before she would be listened to. It was the duty of every man to joiu the agitation for the redress of the There was no financial grievances. greater question before the Irish people at the present moment. It was a question on which, all Irishmen could go forward shoulder to shoulder. There were as good Irishmen who were not Nationalists in this agitation as any who lived within the four seas of Ireland, and nothing should induce Nationalists to hold aloof from these men when they saw them working to redress this grievance. He appealed to them to make this agitation so strong that the British people would have to listen to their demand, In that way, although they had not a united party, the question would be forced into prominence. He welcomed the allusion in the Queen's speech to primary and The technical education for. Ireland. whole energies of their people were rendered less effective, and, In a great measure, nugatory', owing to the want of pri mary education and technical education. Even If they had primary education they handicapped would be desperately through the want of technical education. The promised bill on this subject was the outcome of the inquiry of the Recess Committee, which was presided over by Horace Plunkett. There had been a good deal of talk on the subject of University education, and while he admitted that something ought to be done, he considered the siibject of primary and technical education was far In advance of the' ve'rsity question, For everyone wanting a University training there were- twehty who required a primary and technical education.

The Tagalogs inhabit Luzon and the northern islands of the archipelago, and it is with these that we have mainly to deal, as they are by far the most numerous and the most intelligent part of the population, forming as they do also the largest part of the inhabitants of Manila and the largest ports. The first thing that in the native char acter impresses the traveler is his impassive demeanor and imperturbable bearing. He is a born stoic, a fatalist by nature. This accounts for his coolness in moments of danger and his intrepid daring against overwhelming odds. This feature of the Malay character has often been displayed in the conflicts of race with the Europeans in the East Indies. Under competent leadership the native, though strongly averse to discipline, can be made a splendid soldier. As sailors, too, I do not believe they can be equaled; for lithe, active and fond of the water, the Malays have ever shown their in clination for the seas. Ttieir pirates, coursing in theirprahus, have, until a few years ago, for centuries infested the bays and inlets of the Eastern archipelago, looting the towns and villages on shore and taking as booty such foreign merchantmen as they were able to overcome. On account of the ravages of these fierce Eastern Vikings, Europeans have come to regard the whole Malay race as cruel andbjoodthirty.

The women in Manila are of three classes: The true Spaniards, who have come with their families from Spain to bear company with theirmcu folk while they are serving in the hrmy or mercantile life; the Meztizosj or many of theni the wives' or daughters of theJJpanish soldiers; and the Tagalos or native Filipinos. j The Spanish women are the typical and senoritas one may see in Spain or any of the Spanish-America- n countries. Most of them are wealthy, nnd before the advent of the American soldier in Manila they were the leaders iij such society as Manila could boast. Wc see them now, driving about in their' victorias, proud, haughty, and casting disdainful looks at, if they deign to notice at all, the shabby American lads, who have taken the reins of government from the hands of their ' husbands and brothers. The Meztizo women are an interesting class, and combine in strangely ill-a- s sorted ways the characteristics of the Spanish and their native ancestors. They endeavor to imitate the Spanish women in every way, and sometimes it is a com ical sight to see a Meztizo woman wearing the native costume, but topped off with a glorious Parisian bonnet, nnd supremely nappy in the idea that sue is following in the mode ot her more aristocratic sister in thc matter of headgear at least. Some d of these women are very beautiful, for their ' intermixture of native blood prevents the sallow and faded appearance which this tropical clime invariably produces in the faces of the daughters of a more northern. land. Like the true Spaniards, are all with our enemies, so ltTisTdiflicult to learn luore'ot fheni'alid'thlnf'ltrfift may obssrve from very limited acquaint' a nee. The true Filipino is the only friend of the American in these islands, and she is by far the most interesting of the three types of women to be found here. The interesting little people are of Malay extraction, and those in the neighborhood of Manila at least seem to have a plentiful supply of Chinese or Japanese blood In their veins, for many of them have the almond eyes and tilted eyebrows of the Mongolians. Hut the resemblance ceases here, for these little ladies are of a rich, dark copper color, and in some of the younger girls a faint tinge of color adds attractiveness to their by no means homely faces. Some of them, in fact, are really beautiful, for they have all beautifully long silky hair sometimes wavy, but never by any means kinky, nnd usually .cither a glossy black or a very dark brown. Their features are usually clear cut and regular, and those that do not use the betel nut have teeth that are white and regular as are those of some of our American negroes. The carriage of these people la perfect; carrying burdens on their heads, as do most Southern races, has tnught them to stand and walk erect, and their symmetry of action and poise is indeed beautiful. One striking feature about these women is the beautiful development of neck, shoulders and arms, due, uo doubt, to the same habit of carrying her burdens on her head. I have seen many a native laundress with the arms and shoulders of a Hebe, and any New York society girl would be proud to exhibit such charms at Sherry's or Delmonico's as these untu tored creatures gain by their hard labors. But the charm of the Tagalo woman is not due to her appearance alone. They are a jolly, happy and musical race, and, above all, generous and hospitable, and inclined to be most friendly to the invading Americans. Most of them, however, are not above turning an honest penny, and while the American troops were en camped at Camp Dewey, previous to the capitulation of Manila, the camp was thronged daily with the native women, each with her basket of fruit or eggs and her bottle of "vino," a native wine. They are clever bargainers, too. and to "beat them down" is next to impossible, The Tagalo woman is" usually clever with her needle, and many an American soldier lad, far from the folks at home. has had his mending done by the deft e seamstress. lingers ot some Many of these women make the most exquisite embroidery a kind of drawn work done on a native cloth called pina. This cloth is made from the fiber of the pineapple plant, and is beautifully fine and glossy. The plna is stretched tightly over a bamboo frame, and beautiful designs are drawn in the doth by the industrious workers. Time and labor is of no object in these lazy islands, and I which have have seen handkerchiefs taken months of steady work to produce.

If it is to be taken as a disintegration of the opposition in the Parliamentary Irish party, with a prospect for unity and against the common aggression enemy instead of attacking each other, which we earnestly hope it is? even though it may accomplish practically nothing in the present Parliament, will do much for the cause of Ireland by presenting to the world a united body as representative and authoritative to speak and act on the questions of national import. The effect of such a reuniting of It eland's Parliamentary representatives would be to give courage to all Irishmen, check discord and rivalry among individuals and organizations, and tend to a coming together and harmonious of all, if not under one leadership, at least with one purpose in view and one object to be attained. The more thorough the union, similar the methods and. concentrated the forces of the seV' eral movements for reform and re dress in the Irish cause the more will it be respected and the surer of success to some degree. With the various organizations objects, methods and platforms, al aiming to remedy one or more of Ireland's grievances, there is now an opprtunity for a leader who can unite all these bodies, represent al these different ideas, embody in one the varying demands for Ire land's relief, and gaining the con fidence of the Irish people, lead them into the contest that will re suit successfully.

Black taffeta will be much favored, but fancy silks will hold the vantage ground, and stripes which were well received dur iug the winter months will extend their popularity with spring goods. Chine silks have been revived, and a subdued nppearance is given the colors by a misty effect, which is in high favor in New York and Paris. Bordered silks, plain and figured, arc now being shown in the leading stores, and are being chosen for costumes by the leading Paris dressmakers, the borders being artistically employed for orna mentation. Printed grenadines and printed mous seline de soie are fashions, especial favor ites for evening and for summer wear, and will be made up over colored founda tions. The high-ar- t designs represent floral effects portrayed in colors of natu ral flowers. Such materials will be in favor for waists and for full costumes. Hairline stripes are the dominant de signs in wool and in worsted dress goods, and are especially desirable for tailor made suits.- Broadcloths, Venetians and cheviots, particularly in black, will also be freely used. As the tailor-mad- e gown is to lose none of its popularity, abundant provision has been made for a collection of neat effects in worsted dress goods suitable for such costumes. Wash goods are to gain additional rec ognition, so say the potentates of fashion. While all wash goods will be employed for .summer garments, heavy materials, plain and printed, will hold first place, Plain and fancy piques, ginghams, Mad ras cloths and fancy ginghams of silk and cotton are to be the leading fabrics. Most of the trimming favorites of autumn nnd winter are to be repeated for ornamenting spring niatcnah. . Black mohair scrolls with a feather edge will be freely used, owing to the popular price at which they can be sold. Black silk trimmings in scroll designs will be next in faor. Garnitures in both worsted and silk will be especially desir able for ornamenting waists and skirts, All.of the foregoing are in weights appro priate far spring materials. Black and colored silk applique trim mings on chiffon grounds are the favorites for spring nnd summer silks nnd dress goods that are sheer in texture. One of the pronounced novelties in trimmings will be Persian bands for trim ming plain silks and plain wool veilings and in the very elaborate costumes they will be employed for supplying narrow flounces. Narrow widths to match are also in vogue for sleeve ornamentation, and add much to the beauty of materials of one color. Narrow shirred ribbons have lost none of their popularity, and will be appropri ate for embellishing summer silks nnd sheer woolen materials. White embroideries maybe set down as certain to meet with universal favor for trimming both white and colored wash materials. Insertions will also be freely employed on both white and colored wash fabrics. Fashion has given a high position to laces, and if present indications may be relied on as reflecting coming events in the fashionable world laces 'will be used in profusion. Both black and white will be associated for trimming, as this combination is announced as a leading one for the coming season and very free use will also be mad of black velvet ribbons for trimmings. Haircloth is absolutely indispensable for producing ihe flaring effect at the bottom of the skirt that is the foundation for the present statuesque effect in dress St. Augustine's colored church was again overcrowded on the last two Sunday nights as it had been at the recent dedi cation of St. Anthony's choir.

The new stations are partly the gift of members of the congregation and of white people who interest themselves in St. Augustine's mission. Judge I won't have any more of these interruptions!

Lipton may have been relieved of some of his labors and responsibilites by the change in his business. He is able to enjoy such leisure as comes to him. He is of medium height, but so slender and sinewy that he looks taller. He dresses neatly, not wi i the gaudy ostentation of Barney Baruato. He is erect, elert, a quizzical smile ever lingers on his thin lips, a twinkle shines in his gray-blu- e eyes. He can enjoy a joke. This man is a Democrat among millionaires. He owns a beautiful country place at Osidge a palace our volatile and exclamatorv I ritish cousins call it nnd'here every summer he entertains his own employes, brought hither on special Lipton trains from every part of the kingdom. When Sir Thomas Lipton challenged, in the name of the Royal Ulster Yacht Club, for the America's cup, there were in Britain certain proud aristocrats who sneered at him as not quite a gentleman, don't you know. The "first gentleman in Europe" came to the defense for its first merchant. The Prince of Wales and the Duke o 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 coffee house gift was named the Alexander Fund, by her permission, and the Prince of Wales is sponsor for the three trustees who, with Sir Thomas, are to manage it. There is no more sneering now. The most extraordinary secrecy has been insisted upon the planning and construction of the Lipton yacht. Her metal parts have been made by Thorny-crof- t, and shipped to Harlan & Wolf's yard in Belfast. The Shamrock will be an Irish boat, and she will be sailed to win. "The Lipton flag has never been hoisted in vain," says this bold sportsman. He says he is prepared to "spend, if $250,000 or 30O,0Q0 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 line 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. nec-esser- y, KI Y IRISH AME)RICA3V.

Thirty years ago Thomas Johnstone Lip ton staggered ashore in New York, black with coal dust and gasping for breath, from the furnace room of a Charleston steamer. He had become a stowaway on board because he had no money to pay for his passage; had been dragged from his concealment after the lwattwas out at sea, and with kicks and curses sent to earn his passage by shoveling coal. If, as seems certain, Sir Thomas Lip-to- n 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 von 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 of winning the American 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 in every quarter of the globe to add to his golden gains. While his pulse thrills with the fever of the most glorious of sports, and the white clad sailors lie flat along the windward rail of his Shamrock, C.000 half naked Ceylonese will be picking, packing and sorting teas upon his plantations, where every prospect pleases; at his warehoute docks in Colombo and Ceylon, a fleet of ships will be loading with his goods; in far Chicago his abattoirs will be turning 3,000 hogs per day into food products to be sent to the seaboard in 000 refrigerator cars, and thence carried to every quarter of the globe in Upton ships; 1,800 men, women and boys will delve into the acqonnts and reckoning of his London office; 200 Lipton printers will be striking off the labels and wrappers for his. goods, and in every part of the United Kingdom, in 420 shops and stores which hoist, the Lipton flag, thousands of employes will measure off ha'ports of tea and sugar, even while they wait with loyal confidence the first cable flash of news from the struggling yachts. No romance can surpass in interest the truth about this man, who has passed almost at a leap from the grime of the stowaway to the many millioncd splendor, and who still lives on the threshold of middle age, and looks forward to almost limitless increment of wealth. Very young, the boy worked in Glasgow, where his parents lived, as a mescents a week, edusenger at sixty-on- e cating 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 long 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 stowaway's dusty berth for New York. 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, aid 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. Lipton's Irish parents had savings $400. They intrusted this 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 in those early days he bought the two biggest hogs in Scotland, decked them gayly with ribbons, and led them through the streets labeled "Lipton's Orphans," "Lipton's Monster," another story says, and perhaps both tales are equally dubious. But advertise Lipton did from the first. "I believe in advertising," he says. "It is the life blood of modern trade. Everybody reads." His pennies were few, but nimble, they have rolled far. The shop grew, and presently there were others. The business went by leaps fcnd bounds. Lipton worked, he says, twenty-fiv- e hours out of the twenty-fou- r. With the conquest of capital came the opportunity to demonstrate his favorite project to dispense with the middleman and bring the producer and consumer together. His first large productive enterprise was the purchase of plantations in Ceylon and Colombo, where he raises tea, coffee and cocoa with native labor. He U the largest individual land owner in fpeylon. His packing house in Chicago is a more recent undertaking. Lipton has traveled in most quarters of the globe, but many of his properties juid employes he has never seen. He trusts to subordinates, and knows how to choose men 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 brass baud concert.
