I JiuSli tt= 0 OLUME IINO 13 LOUISVILLE SATURDAYS APRILMSfl9 PRICE FIVE CENTS n BRIAN BOROIMHE Story of the Warrior of Clou tarf AVlio Dofcntcil the Danes Was the Most Brilliant ICing of the Old Dulcasslan Line Under His Itoign Commerce Arty Education and Peace All Flourished KILLED IN THE MOMENT OF VICTORY f Brian Boroimhc or Brian of the Trib ute was the greatest king of the old Dal cassiau line which was founded by Cor mac Cas in the third century In alter nation with the Princes of the Eugenian line the Dalcassian Princes had ruled over Munster for seven centuries when a ton was born to Cinnedigh who was christened Brian Before I explain the signification of the surname which was afterwards given to the Dalcassian House I may not inappropriately quote a passage from OCurrys delightful lec tures in which one valuable social reform in itself enough to illuminate a kingly reign is set forth says a writer in the San Francisco Nation Previous to the time of the Monarch Brian BoroSmhe about the year 1000 there was no general system of family names in Erin but every man took the name cither of his father or of his grand father for a surname Brian however established a new and most convenien- tarrangementnannely that families in future should take permanent names either those of their immediate fathers or of any person more remote in their line oi pedigree And thus Murie Adhach the son of Carthach took the surname of MacCarthaigh now MacCarthy Mac being the Gaelic son Toirdheal bhag or Turloch the grandson of Brian himself took the surname of OBrian or the grandson of lIrianO being the Gaelic of grandsou Cathliarr the grandson of Donnell took the name of ODonnell ODonnell the grandson of Null Glehrubh took the surname of ONeill Tadgh or Teige the grandson of Coftor tbokrttuejiainciOi OConpr Qf Connacht Donogh the son of Murchadh or Murogh took the surname of Mac Muroghof Leinster and so to all the other families throughout the kingdom Brian was born in the year 141 When he was ten years old his brother Malion succeeded to the Kingship At that time the Danes were the scourge and the dread of the native Irish Princes Their wild Vikings came over from the far North in their long ships and settled eagerly upon the smiling Irish shores plundering and devastating in all direc tions and even encroaching more and more upon the soil and pushing the lines of the settlements farther and farther away from the sea From his earliest boyhood Brian seems to have been ani mated by the fiercest hatred against the invaders and by consuming indignation at the humiliation involved in the pres ence of the marauding encampments on Irish soil Hitherto no Prince or League of Princes had been found strong enough to drive the Danes back over the swans bath to their homes in the frozen North The desperate courage the vast physical strength the gigantic frames of the Northmen made them exceedingly dangerous adversaries and moreover they settled upon the country in such numbers as made any attempt to over throw them difficult in the extreme Brianspatience seems to have given way when Mahon in his sovereign capacity as King of Munster withdrew from what looked like a hopeless struggle with the Danes and entered into a solemn treaty with them The treaty could not bind Brian He rallied around him a mere handful of the bravest and most desperate y chieftains and fought the hostile Danes wherever and whenever he couldand to such good purpose that he succeeded in restraining their onwardadvance Fired by the courageous example of Brian his brother Mahon and other Princes took heart and joined together in a comprehensive bond against the com mon enemy Limerick in which the power of the Munster Danes was massed was assailed and carried after some hot fighting and the Irish found themselves masters of many prisoners and a vast quantity of treasure Still in spite of this signal victory such was the power of the Danes and such the strengh of their arms from constant reinforcements and such the dread of their desperate reputa tion that after a while they were per mitted to reenter Limerick as traders and become masters of the town again The reinstated Danes were full of bitter feelings towards Matron as head of the great enterprise which had for a time struck so heavy a blow at their influence and they determined on revenge A con spiracy was formed between Ivar head of the Danes of Limerick and a renegade Irish Prince Ttfolloy Iliof Bran Lord of Desmond who had long been a jealous rival of Mahon whom Mahon had expelled from Desmond and who was thirsting for revenge Between the pair a scheme was laid for the assassination of jSlahon which was carried out under con dition bfpeciilUr and revolting perfidy Mblloy dmmqiied Alftliou to an amicable twowt rival Priocw migttt be dUcuwed add settled The meeting was to be held at the house of Donovan a Eugenian Prince Mahon went to the meeting without any suspicion of the meditated treason he was immediately seized made prisoner hurried to the mountains andI slain The manner of his death was particularly horrible for it is told that when the murderers drew their weapons the betrayed King caught up a copy of the Holy Gospels and placed the open volumes as a shield against his breast But neither I the sacred book nor the presence of two I priests who had courageously followed the doomed King stayedl the murderous hands The assassins closed around the King in a ring of leveled points and plunged their weapons again and again through the book into his body Malion fell to the groundl dead the priests caught up the sacred volume its pages torn with treasons swords and blackened with Dalcassias noblest blood and hurried from the scene of slaughter to bear the news of the murder far and wide Whether even such assassins were unwilling to lay hands upon a holy man or whether they wished the news of cars vengeance and Mollovs treason to be bruited abroad as soon as might be they seem in no wise to have interferedwith the departure of the priests Perhaps the murderers teemedl that in slaying Mahon they had sapped the strength of Minister lint they reckoned without the young chieftain who had been foremost in the late war and whose courage and genius made him a far more dangerous enemy to the Danish strength than the monarch who had been so foully done to death in the Knocinrcorin mountains News of his brothers death was brought to Brian at Kinkora Every historian has recorded the passion of grief and rage which seized upon the young Prince every historian has told how like a leader of Israel or a Hellenic hero he immediately seized his harp and sang the death song of his brother and King every historian has quoted the mighty words in which he pledged himself to vengeance My heart shall burst within my breast Unless I avenge this great King They shall forfeit life for this foul deed Or I must perish by a violent death Bravely and resolutely Brian fulfilled his vow Rousing all his following he flung himself first upon his Danish foes under Ivar of Limerick and routed them completely Ivar the chief of the trait ors with his two sons was slain Then he turned the edge of his sword against the false Eugeniau Donovan DonoVan raised a mighty power of his own people and of Desmond Dames but they could make no head against Brian they were scattered like chaff and Donovan him self was slain One alone now remained of Malionsmurderers M 1oysqnoc Bran Brian sent him a summons to fight which Molloy answered by taking the field with a swollen armament But these too like the others were dispersed and scattered by Brians army and Mol loy himself was slain in the thick of the fight by Murrough Brians valiant and highspirited son Such was the swift fate that overtook the slayer of Mahon While this bloodfeud was being consummated Brians dominions were invaded by Malachy Mor the fatuous Malachy of the Collar of Gold The precise cause of the quarrel between these two illustrious Princes seems now to be somewhat uncertain but it must have been fierce indeedIIwhen it moved so gallant a warror as Malachy to the un generous action of cutting down the sacred tree of Adair under which Brian himself andl the long line of his Dalcas sian ancestors had been crowned As soon as Brian had his brothers vendetta off his hands he turned the strengh of his arm against Malachy by ravaging Westmeath For some time the quarrel between Brian and Malachy raged with intermittent fury victory sometimes in clining toone Prince and sometimes to another At last however a common peril and a common enemy united those hostile monarchs The Danes their de cimated ranks stiffened by reinforcements from the far North were again pursuing their old policy of aggression against the native Irish Brian and Malachy clasped hands in amity concluded true which proved to be a lasting one joined their forces beat back the desperate Danes and entered Dublin With this crushing defeat of the foreign foe came the hour of Brians triumph He claimed the Kingshipof Ireland and calledupon Malachy Mor to acknowledge him a course which Malachy after a little fal tering and some unsuccessful attempts to stir up certain Irish Princes to mutiny finally adopted Brians reign as King of Ireland was brilliant and prosperous Commerce arts education all flourished and the wealth and the peace of the country became pro verbial But the old hatred of the Danes being smoldering blazed at last into de termined insurrection Aided by treason among the Irish chiefs and Princes a formidable army was levied against the aged King But age had not cooled the fiery courage of Briaqs nature He raised all his power and met his foes at Clon tarf on Good Friday April 23 1014 The fortunes of that fight are a familiar I story The Danes were defeated but victory was scarcely less terrible to vic- torsi than to vanquished for in the very ebb of the battle a Danish chief struck down and slew the greatest Prince who ever ruled over Ireland one of the greats est monarchs whose name is recorded in the history of the world fay-C K OF A j St

Tribute to time Celtic Race in ills Dub lin Lecture Ancient Irish Most Important Among the Old Aryan Tongues Best Spirits Now Work In jr For Its Restoration and Pre servation KEEP ALIVE NATIONAL TRADITIONS A large and distinguished audience assembled at the Art Club in Dublin to hear a lecture by Lord Castletown his subject being Our Celtic Inheritance Dr George Sigerson President of the society occupied the chair and most of the leading workers in the literary lan guage and Celtic movements were present Lord Castletowu who was received with applause said To deal adequately with the vast amount of material indicated by the title of my lecture would impose a heavy bur den on even the ablest and most learned of men Before proceeding therefore to give my own views on this most fascinating subject I must humbly apol ogize for my temerity to those far more capable than I who are present here tonight I have but one factor in my favor I love our Celtic traditions I believe in their power for good and I know that in doing all we can to preserve our inheritance and to hand it down to posterity we are meriting the approba tion of those who come after us while we may hope that a long line of Celtic ancestors approve our procedure His Lordship then briefly sketched the early history of the Celtic race its probable march from Central Asia along the Southern Mediterranean to Spain and Gaul and its division into a Cymric and a Gaelic branch before its arrival in the British Isles Perhaps the most perfect of modern Celtic types is the Breton Here at least we find a practically un mixed race which has retained through centuries its native language its quaint customs its dances its dress its native ianlsXamiaggalummnyy traces of itg ancient mythology Brittany is even now an inexhaustible field for the folk lorist the linguist the antiquary and the student of traditional music The Breton has nil the best traits of the Celtic na ture and in addition he has a strong conservatism which has enabled him to retain those traits His bravery is pro verbial He is a good soldier a success ful farmer and a capital sailor Half the sailors of France are Bretons and Brit tarry holds fourfifths of the French fish ing industry representing a value of 32 000000 francs per annum Time Breton fishing fleets arc known in Newfound land and in Iceland The annual de parture of the Pecheurs dlslande is the occasion of a touching ceremony No wonder that Brittany has given to Prance some of her most celebrated men Not I only has Brittany its marvelous megali thic monuments like those of Karnac and Locmariaker but it has a fund of native poetry which is well nigh inex haustible In Wales we find a Celtic laguage in full vigor a language with a considerable ancient and a vast modern literature used at the present day by the majority of Welsh people in everyday life and forming the vehicle of that in tense religious earnestness which recalls the early days of Christianity in Ireland In spite of the proximity of England I and time large number of phonetic changes slmiIlarityis still essentially Celtic and above all it has preserved that most imposing of Celtie institution the Eisteddfod This great festival of poetry and music assembles year after year some 15000 of the children of Wales who find in it not only a rich fountain of delight and artis tic beauty but a living symbol of their nationality anda visible guarantee for their sublime faith that their ancient tongue will hold its own among their mountains until the day of judgment They also have the Gorsedd or Bardic College whose picturesque ceremonial lends an added dignity and a touch of romance to the national gathering I need not speak of the enormous modern literature in the Welsh language a literature says Prof Zimmer which is quite out of proportion to the number of the Welsh people and is estimated at an annual value of 1000000 The determi nation with which the Welsh have main tained their nationality in spite of great and continuous pressure from outside is to my mind the most remarkable proof of the stability and1 undying strength of the Celtic race To pass from London the greatest center of the modern world to Holyhead and to hear nearly everyone there speaking a language which has resisted centuries of attempts to crush it out of existence and to remember that that language was very likely spoken giver 4000 years ago on the Steppes of Tartary or the plains of Chaldaea gives one deep cause to ponder over the iIndom- itable persistency of this race Fron Anglesey we pass to the Isle of Man tendered familiar to so many of us by the beet writings of that distinguished Manx man Hall Caine Here we pMs from lime Cymric to the Gaelic br whof tthe Celtic face Tfoj language Ictitinr r n Ji 1i 1 4 rcr lingers on the westerii coast of the island is strangely familiar to Gaelic speakers and though its spelling is entirely differ ent I believe that an Irish and a Manx Gael can converse without much diffi culty Besides the Man 7 language is just nowbeing taken up with much spirit with the aid of Distinguished Manx scholars like Mr A W Moore the present Speaker of the House of Keys The Arthurian legends that glorious Cymric inheritance whlch Tennyson has woven into one of the finest pieces of English literature find their Gaelic coun terpart in the Ossianic poetry first brought forward by Macpherson And here I must say a few words about our own share in the greatt Celtic heritage You are all aware uW the ancient Irish language is considered by Conti rental philologists not onlyas the key to all the Celtic languages but next to Sanskrit as perhaps the most important of the old Aryan tongues I need hardly refer to the 1009 Irish manuscrips that fill the shelves of the Royjill Irish Acad emy the Trinity College Library and other libraries dispersed over Europe except for the benefit of tUose who deny the existence of Irish literature alto gether These manuscripts are mostly unpublished and a large number of them arc practically unexplored They have already yielded such charming romances aj the Fate of the Child en of Lir the- Pursuit of Diartnuidaim Grainne the Lays of the Land of Youth and the many beautiful pieces c stained in the collections of Stokes lVftfiSCh Zimmer OGrady Joyce and many others Those among us who have not had the great privilege of hearing or rei ding these sto ries in their original tongue should make themselves familiar with this most distinctive of national literatures through whatever translations are variable But With sufficient leisure and the improved modern facilitities for acquiring the Irish language it may be safely said that an acquaintance with a language spoken in Ireland for some 3000 ears and even now spoken by a million people should be one of the first ambitions of every Irishman and Irishwoman We ought to take this matter quite calmly and quietly and not to fret or fume althe carping remarks of any dryasdust professor who considers any subject not his own as be neath contempt Time gave of enthusi asm which is now sweeping over the Cel tic world is I hope thiI augury of a happier future Everyw ere we find time best spirits working at She preservation and restoration of our Celtic heritage and so we need not besurprised to find that the five Celtic nationalities are drawing closer together and are learning to understand and apprecfOfe each others efforts to keep alive jhUK lstl national traditions Slowly but surely the broth ers separated for so long are drawing together for a common endeavor in that highest form of patriotism the cultiva tion of the spiritual heritage of the nation This year and the next will I hope see some practical result of this fraternal cooperation the details of which are being discussed by the foremost leaders of Celtic thought May we be gifted with strength and determination to keep alive in our hearts the glow whichburned in those of our forefathers the love of onr beautiful land of our people and of our language so that we may be at peace among ourselves and show to the other races of the world that the Celtic race has a character a dignity and a mission of its own a mission fraught with the happiness of mankind x MATRIMONIAL Mr Arthur J Campbell Will Wed Miss Maud Brown on April 12 One of time

People Denunciation Ridicule Cheers Hisses Groans and a Noisy Crowd WAS MORE ORDERLY AT LIMERICK On March 8 a large meeting was held1 at Enfield for the purpose of giving the candidates for the County Couucilorship of the district an opportunity putting their views before the electors There are three candidates seeking the suffrages1 of the voters Lord Langford Messrs P J Kennedy J P exM P and Michaeli Healy P L G The chair was occupie- by Mr M G Maher After the chairman Lord Langford was the first to address the meeting He received a mixed reception but contrasted with the turmoil that reigned during the addresses of the other two candidates the behavior of the audience while his lordship was speaking was comparatively orderly Mr Kennedy followed Lord Langford Whilst his supporters cheered lustily the followers of Mr Healy booed as vehemently- On the platform the excitement was greater than among the crowd in the bodyof the meeting A regular cross fire ofa lively and at times a bitter char acter was maintained between Mr Ken nedy and Mr Healy From start to fin ish of the proceedings Mr Kennedy was excessively pesky Lord Langford was not on his legs a minute when he com menced to interrupt him The effect of each interruption was to inflame the assemblage to more vigorous outbursts The Edenberry brass and the Broadford fife and drum bands attended The Chairman in opening the pro ceedings said they wanted to select the best man they could He hoped no re ligion would be brought into the contest They wanted a man who would do justice to everybody rich and poor He hoped the meeting would assist him in keeping order and in giving the candidates a fair hearingLord Langford then addressed the meeting He was received with cheers mingled with some hisses He expressed himself grateful to them for the kind reception they had given him lIe at tended a meeting at Bull Ring on last Sunday and widen he addressed those present as Ladies and gentlemen Mr Kennedy received the observation with a smite of derision Mr Kennedy No no I said there was a time when you would not call then1 ladies and gentlemen Lord LangfordAt that meeting twos only a spectator My idea is that you were surprised to hear me address the electors as Ladies and gentlemen- Mr KennedyI was not surprised I said the old men must be surprised at your coming before them bareheaded begging the favor of their votes when they remember the time when they had to appear bareheaded before your doors and got perhaps bad treatment Lord Langford went on to say that the Rev John Foy who presided at that meeting appeared to go out of his way to abuse in unmeasured language the retiring board of guardians and his rev narks must have included his own can didate Mr Kennedy and several of his supporters who were members of the rev tiring board Those remarks were unjust and uncalled for The old board as far as time and experience were concerned was second to none in Ireland in its care and advancement of laborers interests Cottages were built broadcast through the Trim Union and for that purpose they had pledged the raes to the extent of 200000 The board was presidedover by an elected guardian and the Nation alists had invariably a majority at the board Mr Kennedy was kind enough at the last meeting to follow his political career through all its many branches Dealing with one point made by Mr Kennedy he said when in an election of that sort a candidate founded an accusa tion against his opponent by picking out an advertisement from a paper he considered that that gentleman was going very low It was quite true about the advertisement but mad they not all a right to do what they liked in their own pri vate houses The gentleman who had to go so low must be very hard up to bring something against him He was not going on to retort on Mr Kennedy by asking him hqw many Protestants he had in his house A question of employment t having been raised he asked Mr Ken nedy how many men he employedand I he replied eight permanently His object in that was not to put a large employer against a small one Mr KennedySure you have as many thousands as I have hundreds You should have ten men to every one I haveLord Langford said if he were not lis tened to he would sit down When the crowd assumed a quieter tone he said he was prepared to support the class for a Catholic University He was prepared to advance the interests of all classes especially the laborers To a query about the release of the political prisoners his lordship showed adroit evasion Disregarding the ques oflifef time labor and experience fo get into proper working order It tLey did nott get men ofexperience r leisure and busl t ne 6 capacity to work the act they wouldI End ttirt inftcad of their grievances being V t 1i remedied they would be taking a retro grade step lie came forward as one who had lived among them all his life and iif they did not give hUn their confidence by electing him he should continue to live amongst them He then invited the audience to ask him any questions they desired Thei offer was promptly availedof and the first question put to the noble lord was Are you a Home Ruler supplemented by the statement liton are we will elect you J Straightly and emphatically his lord ship replied No r am not a Home Ruler The declaration was received with a storm of hisses There were also some cheers evoked no doubt by the bold and unambiguous manner in which Lord Langford repliedjudging by the composition of the meeting scarcely one in iit conveyincould make himself heard again he de dared that Home Rule had got nothing to do with local government A scene of great confusion followed this state menteIn the midst of all the uproar his platforaf the chairman to win the attention of time audience to the remainder of his remarks After a weary wait he at lengthI got the chance of saying The reason I wads pulled up as promptly as if by the com bined agency of the assemblage a power ful brake was applied to the organ ofr speech Doubtless his lordships reasonI would be of interest but unlike the usualII custom adopted in the case of serial sto ries it can not be said at this crucial stage of time speech that it will be continued1I in our next As the lord was not able reporteisthe public will this time get a chance of utilizing their own imaginations in putting a fitting conclusion to the speech Mr Kennedy who was received with cheers and hisses explained that it was at the request of the electors he was going forward to defend the nationall citadel He offered his services alike tall 0 Nationalists without distinction of section He regretted to find that since he had issued his address a third candi date had come forward and that an at tempt had been made to give a sectional1 complexion to the movement A voice You started it in Summerhill Mr Kennedy denied that he ever men tioned the word Parnellite in Summer hill Parncllitcs had not signed hisI nomination papers Lord Langford came before them as a Conservative while he Mr Kennedy came before them as a lifelong Nationalist Lord LangfordI was reported as having said that Home Rule would mean bankruptcy His an swer to that was that Home Rule would1 give them the power to put such a tax upon absentee landlords as would guar antec this country against bankruptcy Lord LangfordNonsense- Mr Kennedy continuing accused Lord Langford of voting against the reinstatement of the evicted tenants and against giving the whole acre to the laborers in the Tritn Union lie main tained that they had sufficient evidence before them to carry a verdict of no confidence against Lord Langford He was prepared to support the financial rev lations movement land pnrchase and the cause of the laborers If elected he would support any scheme which would enable them to develope time resources of the country and at the same time pro vide useful employment for the work ingmen in the winter and a scheme en abling the laborers to buy out their cot tages He challenged any man to say that he was a bad employer of labor At this stage Mr Kennedy and Mr Healy entered into a violent word alter cation which lasted for many minutes Mr Healy contested Mr Kennedysj right to address him on the platform Mr Healy said Dont open your mouth so wide Mr Kennedy retorted If you stoop to language of the cornerboy 1 am not going to follow you Both candidates were gesticulating and de claiming wildly In the course of the uproirous scene the epithets liar bogman etc were freely used At length when affairs became sonic what calmer Mr Kennedy concluded his address If they elected a member of the grand jury class he maintained that they would be indorsing the works and pomps of that class in the past and their positiorsinMr Healy who met with a mingled reception ultimately when he was able preparedifMr Kennedy was the most suitable can didate he would stand by their decision but until he got some proof of that he would fight it out He had been selected in preference to Mr Kennedy by the South Meath Trade and Labor Associa tion Here Mr Kennedy excitedly inter posed observing that that was a one sided thing got up in a public house in TrimIn reply to this Mr Healy asserted that he could produce Mr Kennedys supporthimhimMr Healy maintained that he was the laborers candidate and not Mr Kennedy He would support any proposal that would be made to borrow money from of Works in order to get employment in the winter time for the men He would also support the acre plot There was a sum of 40000 at present to the credit of the county That money could be used for the purpose of provid ing labor Arising out of aii observation made by Mr Healy to the effect that if the shop hours act were put in force in the coun try some people would be prosecuted for having their men working eighteen hours put of the twentyfour another period of excitement and confusion arose Side issues of little pertinence such a tuber ado tramps 1rat JiUuuni cottages- etcs were dEtwitwhit Intense vigor Kennedyo c fr J = 7 the ridicule of the audience He has said he a tall hat with time curse of God on the side of it So furious was the encouuter growing that Dr Trotter Sug gested giving them a pair of boxing gloves to decide it specchlsaidHe appealed to them to put aside all such cries as that It seemed to be Mr Ken nedys policy to take all Protestants by the neck and throw them out of the country altogether Protestants should live in the country as well as Catholics He did not approve of the sectarian aim mosity that Mr Kennedy wanted to get up He also held that he was the first who had been selected by the electors Nationalists could not vote for a Conser vative Perhaps in the course of time men like Lord Langford would become supd Dr Trotter who was well received said before he came there he was under the impression that they had three excel lent candidates but he should now can didly say that after the exhibition he hadseen that opinion was very much modified because if such scenes as that between Mr Kennedy and Mr Healy were to take place in the new board rooms it would be very serious A voice They would want the doctor Dr Trotter continuing said Mr Kennedy was an excellent politician I so was Mr Healy who was also a good guardian in the Trim Union He asked them however to elect Lord Langford because he and his family hadalways lived at Summerhill and because heI gave constant employment I I ICapt Fowler appealed to them to look t mindIexcluding party politics or creed Lord I Langford possessed the abilities required for the position and would be quite inde pendent ofanybody Mr J Donegan addressed the meet ing urging the claims of the laborers GERMANAMERICANS Protest Against Alliance With England at Big Meeting In Chicago Press dispatches from Chicago stat that the Auditorium was packed full Monday evening of GermanAmericans and others called together to

parties were represented on the platform and committee The meeting was a very enthusiastic one and time following declaration was unani mously adopted With the profoundest indignation we have noticed the persistent efforts of EnglishAmerican newspapers not only prejudicescharacter of the GermanAmerican but also to drag the United States into an alliance with England As loyal citizens of this republic it is our might as well as our duty to resist these wicked practices with all due firmness The immigrants from Germany have brought with them to this land the achievements of a civilization as high as it is old Upon every field of the intel lectual life of our nation as well as in commerce industry and agriculture their efforts have redounded to the weal of our people and in peace as well as in war they have at all times faithfnlly fulfilled their duty No part of the American people has done more for the cultivation ot music socialibity the arts the sciences the churches and schools than the Germans As good citizens of this country we cheerfully hand over the achievements of German culture to our youthful American people still in a state of development We emphatically object therefore to the attempt to stamp our people as Anglo Saxons and to make us subservient to English guile Not England but the whole of Europe is the mother country of the white inhabitants of the United States We demand that not only friendly relations be maintained with Germany that has been u faithful friend of our people for more than 120 years but that peace and harmony be cultivated with all nations and we will therefore true to the wise counsel of George Washington at all times firmly oppose the formation of entangling alliances with England as wellas with any other country whereby our country may be involve 1 in unneces sary war We denounce the defamers who have not only instigated public illwill against Germany but who have by their gross slanders also sown the seeds of discord among our own people and we solemnly protest against the proposed alliance with England We further declare that with nil lawful politlcalstrenuously oppose all those who favor the wicked attacks made upon friendly nations and who labor to entangle our country in an alliance with England We call upon the committee that has had in charge the arrangments for this mass meeting to invite all the GermanAmeri can churches societies and others in this city to send a delegate to n convention to purposeof maybecome necessary to protect the blessings againstwickedandi Wecallppott the
