District Guardians l Importance of Unity and Activ- Ity by Nationalists to Elect Their Candidates Victory in These Locnl Contests Menus Much for the National Cause FOUNDATION FOR HOME GOVERNMENT In the nominations for County and Rural District Councillors and Guardians in urban districts the practical com mencement of the new system of local self governntent in Ireland began on the 9th The municipal elections which took place in January were not elections of news bodies It was simply the old authorities in the cities and towns of Ire land which were then elected on a new fromlthatpreviously been held Time first step taken not only in the election of Urban Guardians on the new franchise but in the creation of absolutely new authorities for the management of county and rural district affairs Those new authori ties will have very considerable powers The County Councils except for one or two matters will take the place and dis charge the business of the grand juries as well as a considerable amount of new business besides while the Rural District Councils will have not only the powers and duties of the old Presentment Ses sions in the rural districts but also the sanitary business of the Boards of Guar dians It is true that both sets of Coun cils will be governed in their procedure by stringent rules and will be subject in many things to the control of the Local Government Hoard But despite those rules and that control they will have a large discretion the exercise of their powers will necessitate the possession by those who may compose them of consid erable capacity for public affairs and consequently the immediate consequences directly flowing from their action toUiejarJom localities concerned will be extremely important one way or the other Dut this is not all Their method of managing the business entrusted to them shay well be attended also by large political results affecting the country as a whole If says Mr Lecky lithe new Councils prove a real success they will form habits that will make future extensions of selfgovernment much less dangerous than at present In other words they will pave the way for national self governmentUnder circumstances it is obvious that the electors of the country must in the interest not merely of the localities in which they are respectively concerned but of the entire nation make the best use they can of the opportunity now for the first time open to them of choosing their administrators In the first place the Nationalist majority must make sure in as many places as possible of Nation alist majorities on the various Councils There should be no sympathy at all with the cry raised in some districts by Union ists thatIIno politics should enter into those local contests It is now a very convenient cry for those who raise it and who never acted on it themselves in their day of power but it is a maxim which is nowherethat we know of ob served in practice In England all local elections are habitually fought out on strictly political lines and according as Liberals or Conservatives win they proclaim and rejoice over their success In Ireland there is absolute need for follow ing the English practice if it is intended as it is to make the new Councils step pingstones as it were to home rule Think what would be said if the majority of the County Councils of Ireland passed resolutions against home rule and voted slavish addresses to the Queen or her Viceroy On the other hand despite Mr Leckys dogmatic assertion that the po litical resolutions of the new bodies arc not likely to have great weight the mere fact of the large majority of them seizing every suitable occasion to pro claim their allegiance to the national demand will leave such an impress on public opinion throughout the three kingdoms and even outside their bounds as will render it possible for any one to say henceforth that the nations desire for and determination to win national selfgovernment ever be extinguished11 except by the full concession of the historic right of Ireland to rule itself in all Irish affairs It is earnestly to be hoped that division in the Nationalist ranks such as exists unfortunately in some places will not prevent the achievement of that result In the next place it is absolutely essential that honest and capa ble persons should be elected that the people at large may reap the full benefit of the measure of selfgovernment now conceded to them and that it shall not be in the power of any one to burl at us the reproach of incompetence or corrup tion and now it would be a wise and politic course in selecting such persons maF jority if that can be doneconsistenU- ywiththe safeguarding of the national qiuse which ought to be the supreme consideration The next few weeks will ate amore Wan usually important occa t sion Let us hope that it will be wisely availed of that all concernedwill remember the issues at stake and that when the occasion has passed Irish Nationalists may be able to congratulate on having forged a potent weapon in the nations fight for liberty HUGH RYAN Canadas Railroad and Canal Builder Dead I I i Mr Hugh Ryan of Toronto died recently aged 07 years He was the lead ing genius in carrying on nearly all the great public works in Canada In the past thirty years He was an earnest Irish man prominent in all

Waged In the Ills tonic County Lord Diinraven and Mr John Coleman Contesting for County Councillor v Rival Meetings Held Speeches Resolutions and Workers Rallying the Voters NATIONALISTS IN COUNTY DUBLIN Lord Dunraven arrived at Adare March 8 and was met ba large crowd of the villagers There were a number of torch bearers and the horses were unyoked from the car in which his Lordship was on his way from the station to the Manor House The Earl of Dunraven calledat the residence of Dean Flanagan and subsequently proceeded to Adare Manor where he addressed those assembled An address was presented by the Adare Elec tion Committee welcoming his Iordship back to Adare Lord Dunraven in reply said he had never expected the hearty reception given to him It showed him that they did not start when entering this fight without thinking about it and making up their minds to back him up thoroughly and to carry the fight successfully for him It showed him that the more people told them that they had no business to elect for the County Council a man in his position a man like him that they had sense enough to see and know that a County Council election had nothing whatever to do with the large questions of Imperial politics Any man who voted for and supported him at this election did not alter in the slightest particle or gave no man the right to say he altered in the slightest particle any opinions he could hold on political matters They were going to have a pretty hard fight he expected Since I clime home the other day I have read some accounts of what has been said at various meetings meetings about me and my father before me My opponents seem to have read up my family history They know more about it than I do They have gone back famV as miryanwHvaadathc ys rtI1 can see That is a very interesting oc cupation and they could keep at it for a long time If they look back they will find there were Quins in Munster a good many years ago I have seen a rather remarkable documenta kind of address that has been sent round by my opponent to the tenants on my property Well I am not going to make a speech tonight I will take other opportunities of talking about those matters but there is one thing in that address sent to my tenants that I can not allow to go without saying a word on it and that is in stating Father Flanagan your parish priest has been nothing more than a kind of instru ment in my hands to enable me to screw the last farthing out of the tenants A man opposing me has a perfect right to say anything he likes about me I do not care what they say The more they say about me the better pleased I am but a man has no right whatever to say that a clergyman whom you know leas been the whole of his life in this parish whose sole thought and wish and aim and ob ject in life has been the welfare of every one of hits flockit is a shame to say that such a man has lent himself to try and grind the poor I am not going to detain you I will only thank you again for this magnificent demonstration and I will take this opportunity of thanking also the members of the committee for the noble way you have supported me during my absence I am toldI dont know whether it is true or notI am told my opponent Mr Coleman is going to have a meeting here next Sunday If so I want you to be sure he has a good hear ing TO OPPOSE DUNltA YEN An enthusiastic meeting was held at Croagh March 12 in support of the can didature of John Coleman for the Croom division of the Limerick County Council Contingents attended from Croom Ball inganny Meanus Bruff Rathkcale Kil dimo Limerick Gurnane and Ballingar ry The chair was taken by William Blake of Croagh amid cheers The Chairman said they were assembled to support the candidature of John Coleman who was a good Irish Nation alist He hoped that every man who had a vote would give it in favor of Mr Cole man and that they would not elect a man who would vote for coercion in the morning and against home rule Mr Cornelius Cahill proposed and Mr Michael Davidson seconded the follow ing resolution That in consideration of the right of the people of Ireland to govern themselves we the electors of this district of the Croom division in pub lic meeting assembled hereby pledge ourselves to support the candidature of John Coleman to represent us in the County Council Mr Dundoii said he would not like to say R work against Lord Dunraven who was a great Irishman and a good man to Adare but though gratitude was a great feature in the Irish people what had I Lord Dunraven done outside Adare to merit their support In the House of vernllltntIwhirl under Lord Salisbury had called the Irish people Hottentots Let Lord Dunraven state that he was in favor of home rule and then the Irish people might support Him but until then they could not afford to do so Mr John OBrien Limerick said they were now called upon to perform one of the most important functions the Irish people were called upon to perform for the last seven centuries Their suffrages would be tested between a flunky peer on time one hand and an Independent Nationalist on the other If they be lieved prosperity could only be attained by self governnmemmt they should vote for theyhindascendency spirit In every country in the world democratic principles had brought about prosperity but in Ireland where ascendency prevailed ruin and desolation followed in its wake The fact that Lord Dunraven was a good landlord should not be a barrier to the salvation of the Irish people The only hope for the Irish people was a Parliament in College green As soon as Lord Dunraven took his place with his countrymen then he would come there to support Lord Dun raven and not until then If through the servility of the people of this county Lord Dunravcn or Lord Montcngle were returned to the County Councils they would go back to the House of Lords and there tell the Hottentot Premier Lord Salisbury that the Irish people were weak and miserable enough to lick the hand that scourged them If the British Government thought they were still able to rule the country they would have allowed their landlord garrison to rule supreme but time people had proved be yond doubt that democratic principles would govern the people Mr James Coffey solicitor supported the resolution and read an extract from Mr Swift McNeills book on the history of the Irish union to show how the Dun raven family had secured its title He I questioned whether Lord Dunravens tenants were as comfortable as represented Was it not well known that they were the most rack reuted tenantry iin Munster Mr Colleylint the fact that the man was a tenant ot Lord Dunravens did not constitute his being in a state of vassalage as in days of yore With regard to Lord Dunravens advocacy of the labor ers he had meld that the laborers shouldI be obliged to work for the farmers on whose land they lived Lord Dunraven was a man who had sacrificed friendship on the altarof personal expediency They need not say anything about the late Con troversy which was able to take care of itself but they could see that he was not greatly concerned about his friend when it served his interest rCe1s inewmelusiotrKriilcl =iipo the people to support an Irish Nationalist as against the Sassenach The Mayor of Limerick Alderman John Daly who was received with loud cheers said that for century after century their forefathers had tried to shake off the yoke of the foreigner They were now called upon to say whether they were content with British rule in Ireland or whether they would proceed in the de mand that the Irish people alone had the right to guide the destiny of their own land Would they declare on April C that they would have as their representa tive a representative of West Britonism If they did so shame on them And the time would come when their treachery to themselves and to the faith of their fathers would be recorded to their own destruction and misery He was glad that none of the speakers had indulged in any strong language against Lord Dunraven language that would be un worthy of an Irish Nationalist lie called on them to vote for an Irish Nationalist againt a Unionist Mr David Quaide Mr John Osborne and other speakers followed and Mr John Coleman returned thanks IN COUNTY DUBLIN On March 8 a large meeting of Nationalists was heM at Glasnevin Hill in sup port of Francis Keegan for County Coun cillor against Col Lindsay supported by the Tories The principal speech was by Mr J J Clancy M P who explained why he took part in a local election of the kind If it had been a contest be tween two Nationalists lie would not lave interfered and his reasons for attending werefirst because he had been invited by the electors of the division and secondly because the fight was not be tween two Nationalists but between a Nationalist and an enemy of the national rights of Ireland Personally he further explained he had not a word to say against Col Lindsay but he wished to point out why the Nationalist electors should take an active interest in this election In the first place he assumed the Nationalists were in favor of having a Nationalist majority on the County Dublin Council He himself belonged to a party that had declared and had been a party to the declarationthat wherever they could consistently with the safety of the Nationalists give representation to the minority it would be good to do so but that doctrine did not apply to the County Dublin because the Unionists here are strong enough to return as many men as they are entitled to He had gone over the lists very carefully and found that in that division the Nationalists were five to one but it would be little use in having the names on the register if the electors did not go to the booths on the polling day If the Nationalists wherever they had a majority gave away any of the seats theywould be simply restoring the grand jury to its old position in the county of Dublin under the name of County Coun cils Owing to the division among the people the Unionists might be able iu nearly half pf the twenty divisions to reo CONTINORD ON

celebrated in the Capital City of Ken tucky The morning of the Irish na tional holiday dawned bright and clear and as the glorious sun rose slowly in the cast and shed its soft mellow rays over the green hills that surround the little city the sons and daughters of Erin realized that for the first time in many years they were to celebrate St Patricks day with clear warm and most beautiful weather Slowly the slumbering little city awakens and by degrees takes on its usual bustling air of business As early as 7 oclock men attired in their Sunday clothes cleanshaven and with a happy smile upon their faces might be seen wending their way toward the Ancient Order of Hibernians Hall on the South Side where the members of the order met and proceeded to the Church of the Good Shepherd and partook of holy communion in a Ixxly at 8 oclock Rev Father Major the pastor and chaplain of the division celebrated high mass and gave a very short instruction to Irishmen in general At 70 p m

very plainly shown on that evening Com mencing at the beginning in time year wle 4ghW4Cri k1 t t1i vent into Ireland even down to the present day the reverend father carried his spellbound audience lie related and pictured very graphically all the trials and tribulations of the brave sons of Ire land all those long years of British rule from King Henry VIII down As he pictured the brave sons of a proud peo pIe reduced to poverty and forced to seek a home and living in a strange land among strangers casting a last long lingering look upon the Green Isle as the steamer left the dock bound for America liThe land of the free And the home of the brave there was many an eye dimmed by tears caused by memory of days long ago He closed by paying a high tribute to all honorable Irishmen who were proud of their birth and proud of their church and by expressing his contempt for Irishmen that were ashamed of their birth place and their religion and who few in number though they may be for sake of society denied their religion and their country The church was crowdedwith one of the largest crouds that ever at tended a St Patricks day sermon After services were over the Ancient Order of

the division He concluded by wishing the division a large increase in membership before March 17 1000 rolls round Larry OConnor says that he never chews but a great many men think otherwise since

he attended the farewell banquet to Ambassador Choate and said some complimentary things about Choate and England We have not always agreed with Cockran or Choate but they are both men of the highe ability and character respected and deserving the respect of all menI even though we may not always a prove of the views they expressi Both are men of worldwide repuI c tation and it is in no sense an un enviable one We do not know that eifher have ever said or did anything to merit the enmity of the Irish people unless it be that Choate in the discharge of hi duty as a commissioner or in othe capacity representing this government on international issues has not always decided to the detriment of England and that Cockran on the proper occasion when the ci cumstances made it proper to do s dared to speak in complimentary terms of Choate and the English peopleTo denounce public men for this indicates a narrowness of view and national hatred against which Ireland has justly com plained as prompting the ruling class in England in them government of the Irish peo pIe and its manifestation by the advocates of Irelands cause will do 1 Ireland only harm especially this country Hatred of England andl everything English as a test ofI i Irish patriotism or friendship for t Ireland may suit some but if willI never do as an incentive to Ameri can sympathy or favor The American people are far too liberal minded to even approve such vitu peration and indulgence in it only excites their disgust and when as in the present ease an Irishman iis condemned by Irishmen the American is not likely tofie moved to higher regard for the Irish characterBourke Cockrau is a native oftt Ireland one of the few great ora tors of this country a man o ability learning integrity purity respected and honored by people o all classes and opinions for his worth such a man as any people should be proud to claim as their own instead of repudiating and denouncing him because those who may be enemies of his race praise and honor him for the same reason that others doleis greatness of character sterling talents and good ness of heart To do so is only to give Irelands enemies another chance to charge that it is only the Irish who are ungrateful and always condemn their great men THE NEW YORK HOLACUST The burning of the Windsor Hotel New York and loss of lives t and injury to nearly a hundred t

In the twilights of June Under the trees where the rivulets murmur Blends with the mockingbirds concert in tune There in a hammock suspended an swaying Sitting alone with a maiden I swung Or thrilled into joy by the songs that she sung Down on a lawn of the meadows that bound us Rested hermansion embowered in trees Tall and majestic as those that were round us Covered with blooms that gave balm to the breeze Over its balcony columns and casement Ivy in vines interlaced and entwined Creeping and clinging from roof unto basement Drooping oer windows hey trellised1 and lined Thus in the twilight alone we lay swing ing- Swinging at dusk in luxuriant June Hearing the copse with the whippoorwills ringing As the moon rose oer a misty lagoon Listning anon unto music entrancing Coming tows in mellifluous tones Down from her palace where maidens dancingt and engirdled with zones 0 it was 8V et in the starlight and splendor Thus to be swinging alone with my love 0 it was rapture celestial and tender Thus to be jiwaying in the cool of the grove Gazing with her lit the heavens around us Shining so dreamily over our tryst Looking with her on the lowlands that bound us Sprinkledwith fireflies tangled in mist Then I was happy for life to my vision Seemed like a slumbrous orient scene Silvered with moonlight in bowers elysian And veiled with a mist of purpureal sheen But like the light of the night that kept shifting Till they went down into gloom and decay So from around me lifes pleasures kept drifting Till they have now almost faded away THOMAS A WAISH Louisville Ky March

Council and if they succeed in winning ten seats they would with the three who would be nominated from the grand jury have thirteen seats against the ten the Nationalists would have He advocated the election of Nationalists on the Councils to enable the people to feel that at last they had the control of their own affairs in their own hands and in his opinion the local affairs of Ireland would be better admin istered by the people themselves He heard views expressed as to whether they were competent to manage their own affairs but how could they ever manage them except they learned and if they now reinstalled the grand jury in the seat of local affairs they would never know how to do it Regarding the labor ers he thought he could truly boast he had done more than any single man in the County Dublin to help themin hav ing proper dwellings erected for them and preventing eviction but he put above the laborers and fanners and and every other class in the community the interest of Ireland a na tion The root causes of all their troubles and misfortunes were the want of labor for the laboring man and the want of circulating capital They were not gov erned by themselves and their resources were taken away by a superior power in a foreign Parliament and it was this foreign power that the Tories of the County Dublin had been upholding in its en tirety Referring to the threatened evic tions in and Castleknock the claimed to have prevented the evic tions and he desired to know why if Col Lindsay was a rural member of the North Dublin Board of Guardians why he had not attended the board to protest against the evictions Of course if Col Lindsay were not a member of the board he was at once ready to apologize for putting the question By the local gov ernment act lie said the landlords had rid themselves of all local rates and al though the occupiers of lands and houses get a reduction in rent in proportion to the increase in the rates and a grant was made from the exchequer in aid of local rates yet they would be considerable and it was a matter of the greatest Im the new Councils men in sympathy with them who would see there is no exorbit ant and increase in the rates for if there were the financial bene fits that had been secured for the occu piers of land would disappear and they would be worse off than before He did net believe tthe landlordl chafes

so far as concerned the little land they occupied themselves and if he had to choose between two Nationalists a landlord and an occupier he wouldrather trust the occupier because he had the sense of grievance burned into his soul and the prejudices that had been engrained into the landlord class would take a long time to die out In conclu sion he asked them to give their entire support on the polling day to the Nation alist candidate The fight would be an uphill one but it remained with the peo pIe to say whether the division would be represented by a Unionist or a Nationalist and that very fight might decide whether the County Council of Dublin would be Unionist or Nationalist- Mr F Keegan the Nationalist candi date said the issues had narrowed them selves down to simply Nationalism versus Toryism and in his opinion a Nationalist was as competent to work in the County Councils as a Tory and it was time that the people should have an opportunity of spending their own money As a Nation alist he went into the fight and as a Nationalist he claimed their votes and if returned he would safeguard as far as he could the interest not only of that divis ion but of every district in County DublinMr Henry Dixon and Mr William OBrien also addressed the meeting and urged on the electors the necessity of securing the return of the Nationalist candidate NEW IRISH CLUB The formation of the new Irish club in London has attracted the notice of the London press The Daily Telegraph says No longer can the reproach be leveled at Irishmen resident in London that they alone
