Kentucky Irish American OLUME II. NO. 13. settled. The meeting was to be held nt 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 and 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 the sacred book nor the presence of two priests, who had courageously followed the doomed King, stayed 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. Mahon fell to the ground dead; the priests caught up the sacred volume, its pages torn with treason's swords and blackened with Dalcassia's 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 Ivar's vengeance and Mollo'y's treason to be bruited abroad as soon as might be, they seem in no wise to have interfered with the departure of the priests. Perhaps the murderers deemed that in slaying Mahon they had sapped the strength of Munster. But 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 Kuocinrcorin mountains. News of his brother's death was Every brought to Brian at Kinkora. 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 traitors, with his two sons, was slain. Then he turned the edge of his sword against the Donovan false Eugenian 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 himself was slain. One alone now remained Molloy, .son ,of, of Mahon's-tuurdererBran. 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 Brian's army, and Molloy himself was slain in the thick of the fight by Murrough, Brian's valiant and d son. Such was the swift fate that overtook the slayer of Mahon, was being conWhile this blood-feu- d summated Brian's dominions were invaded by Malachy Mor, the famous 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, indeed, when it moved so gallant a warror as Malachy to the ungenerous action of cutting down the sacred tree of Adair, under which Brian himself nnd the long line of his Dalcassian ancestors had been crowned. As soon as Brian had his brother's 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 inclining to'oue Prince and sometimes to another. At last, however, a common peril and a common enemy united those hostile monnrchs. The Danes, their decimated 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 a truce 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 Brian's triumph. He claimed the Kingship of Ireland, and called upon Malachy Mor to acknowledge him, a course which Malachy, after a little faltering and some unsuccessful attempts to stir up certain Irish Princes to mutiny, finally adopted. Brian's reign as King of Ireland was brilliant and prosperous. Commerce, arts, education, all flourished, and the wealth and the peace of the country became proverbial. But the old hatred of the Danes, being smoldering, blazed at last into determined 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 Brian's nature. He raised all his power and met his foes at Clon-ta- rf on Good Friday, April 2tt, 1014. The fortunes of that fight are a familiar story, The Danes were defeated, but victory was scarcely less terrible to victors 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 greaU est monarchs whose name is recorded in the history of the world. high-spirite- LOUISVILLE: SATURDAY APRIL lingers on the western coast of the island is strangely familiar to Gaelic speakers, and though its spelling is entirely different, I believe that an Irish' and a Manx Gael can converse without much diffiPays a Glowing Tribute to the culty.

Ilri.ui Boroimhc. or Brian of the lrib- utc, was the greatest king of the old Dalc easslan line, which was founded by Cor-nia- over Minister for seven centuries, when a son was horn 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 O'Curry's delightful lectures, 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 Boroimhe 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 grandfather for a surname. Brian, however, established a new and most convenient namely, that families in arrangement future should take permanent names, either those of their immediate fathers or of any person more remote in their line or pedigree. And thus Murie Adhach, the son of Carthach, took the surname of MacCarthaigh. (nowMacCarthy), "Mac" being the Gaelic "son." Toirdheal-bhaor Turloch, the grandson of Brian himself, took the surname of O'Brian or "the grandson of Brian" O' being the Gaelic of "grandson;" taiunarr, me grandson of Donuell, took the name of O'Dounell; O'Donnell, the grandson ot Null Glehrubh, took the surname ot O'Neill; Tadgh or Teige, the grandson of of 0'Coti,or, Qf rjortor, t6ok.tlie-iamConnacht; Donogh, the son of Murchadh or Ttfurogh, took the surname-o- f Leinstcr; and so to all the other families throughout the kingdom." Brian was born in the year i)U. When he was ten years old his brother Mahon 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 directions, 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 animated by the fiercest hatred against the invaders, nnd by consuming indignation at the humiliation involved in the presence of the Inarauding encampments on Irish soil. Hitherto no Prince or League of Princes had been found strong enough to drive the Danes back over the swan's bath to their homes in the frozen North. The desperate courage, the vast physical strength, the gigantic frames of the made them exceedingly Northmen, dangerous adversaries, and, moreover, they settled upon the country in such numbers as made any attempt to overthrow, them difficult in the extreme. Brian's patience seems to have given way when Mahon, in his sovereign capacity as King of Minister, withdrew from what looked like a hopeless struggle with the Daues, 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 chieftains, and fought the hostile Danes wherever and whenever he could, and to such good purpose that he succeeded in restraining their onward advance. Fired by the courageous example of Brian, his brother Mahon and other Princes took heart and joined together in a comprehensive bond against the 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-tiothat after a while they were perLimerick as traders, mitted to and become masters of the town again. The reinstated Danes were full of bitter feelings towards Mahon ns head of the great enterprise which had for a time struck so heavy a blow at their influence, and they determined on revenge. A conspiracy was formed between Ivar, head of the Danes of Limerick, and a renegade Irish Prince, Molloy, son of Bran, Lord of Desmond, who had long been a jealous rival of Mahon, whom Maiion nad expelled from Desmond, and who was thirsting for revenge. Between the pair a scheme was laid for the assassination of .Mahon, which was carried out under condition of peculiar and revolting perfidy. Molloy summoned Mfthou to an amicable conference, at which the claims of the. two rival Princea might be dlacuaaed. and. -g, n, Cas in the third century.

All politicians are now looking forward with interest to the big political event of April 6 the Railroad Commissioner race. At the present writing and before the mass conventions it looks like McChord will win, although Senator Alexander has powerful political friends pulling for him, and with a fair show may beat hs opponent by a nose. Whichever wins will have very few votes to spare. While the opposition to Senator Goebel fofGovernor are daily making combinations and schemes, the Kenton county man feels confident of defeating both Stone and Hardin. He is going quietly on making speeches and explaining to Kentucky' true Democracy his position and the platform upon which he will accept the nomination for Governor of the proud old Commonwealth. Senator Goebel has many friends and strong supporters in Frankfort who will stand by him until the curtain is runtr down upon the last act in the State political theater on June 21. The Hibernians will celebrate Easter Monday with a grand hop, the first since February 8. Admission will be by special invitation.

The great political struggle for the Senatorial nomination in Fayette county is over, and Major J. Embry Allen, of the gallant Second Kentucky Volunteers, is the victor over his strong political adversary, Col. W. H. May, well known in local and State politics. It goes without saying that Major Allen will represent the interests of the people of Fayette in the same able manner as did his predecessor, Hon. Charles J. Bronston. ii Mr. Thomas Bernard O'Brien, the saddler, died last Sunday very suddenly, having been sick less than a week. Mr. O'Brien was born in Limerick, Ireland, in 1832. He came to Lexington in 1852. Mr. O'Brien was a Confederate sympathizer and saw service at Fort Donelson. After its fall he returned to Lexington and was in business for a number of years on North Limestone street. Mr. O'Brien was held in high esteem by all who knew him. The children surviving him are Sister (Mary) Camillius, Providence, Ky.; Mrs. John O'Grady, Muir Station; Misses Mary, Abbie and Katie O'Brien, P. A. and Smith O'Brien, of Washington, D. C, and James O'Brien, of the Leader office, Lexington. The funeral took place from St. Paul's Catholic church Tuesday morning, Rev. James P. Barry officiating. The engagement is announced of Miss Julia Francina Carroll, daugater of Mrs. Carroll, of Spring street, and Mr. John Joseph Luby, of this city. Miss Carroll is a lovely young girl, both in person and character, with many friends and admirers, and Mr. Luby is a popular young business man with Kaufman & Co. The marriage will be celebrated April 10 at St. Paul's church. Another engagement of wide interest is that of Miss Anne Elizabeth Shannon, of this city, and Mr. Robert Rives, of Lebanon, Kv. Miss Shannon is bright and charming, and is an intimate friend of Miss Carroll, both living on the same street, so it is very appropriate that their happy story is told at the same time. Her fiance is a prominent lawyer of his city, and was a Captain in the Second Kentucky Regiment. He is the brother of Jndge Rives, and his sister is the Kentucky poetess, Mrs. Agnes Rives Adams. The wedding will take place next month. Col. D.

" WATHEN' SCREAMERY. Extensive Preparations Made For the Production of " "" Pure Goods. Pure milk is nature's food. It contains all the chemical elements essential to nutrition. The important thing is to get it pure. Scientists agree in the statement that milk is most liable to contamination of all the food products. Aside from the various ptomaines all poisonous incidental to the storage of milk, turbercu-lou- s consumption, worms in children and various other diseases are directly traceable to milk. The diseases are all due to the presence of germs, for the propagation of which milk is directly responsible. No care, cleanliness or precaution can prevent such ljability to disease except the Pasteurization of milk offered for public consumption. To meet these requirements Mr. T. J. Wathen has recently added to his plant machinery for this purpose, and hereafter purposes to offer to his patrons only milk and cream thoroughly Pasteurized, with out being deprived of its nutritive qualities and fit food for all, from the infant in arms to the adult. His butter and ice cream are made of Pasteurized cream and will be found of superior quality. We call attention to his advertisement in our columns and compliment him upon his enterprise. DEDICATION.

The wages of nearly 7,000 cotton mill employes at Lawrence, Mass., and Pitts-fielN. II., have been advanced 5 to 10 per cent. The meeting of the Typographical Union tomorrow will be an important one. Delegates will be nominated for the Detroit convention. The Beer Brewers' Union, at their meeting last Tuesday evening, elected August Priesterbach, of St. Louis, to represent them in the national convention in St. Louis tomorrow. Last Monday the contracting tailor's of Cincinnati, who do work by the piece, for wholesale clothing manufacturers, struck for higher rates. The tailors and their employes number lyjfWO to 20,000.
