people to home rule remains un diminished In the elections for the newlyestablished County Councils just held throughout Ireland the Home Rule candidates swept Munster Leinster and Connaught while event in the most Con servative districts of Ulster the National ists obtained notable successes In the three Nationalist provinces the Unionist candidates stood in every county reckoning on the apparently apathetic condition of political feeling following factionist dissensions to en able them to secure a larger represen tation if not control of some of the most important new county boards Hut except in isolated cases where on r ere sonal grounds Unionists were elected unopposed they have been overwhelm ingly defeated The policy of importing politics into these elections was denounced by John Redmond mid his friends who argued that toleration should be drawn to the Unionists who should be accorded a fair representntion as the best way of starting the new bodies on their career Dillon on the contrary recommended that no quarter be given to the enemies of home rule until home rule is at tained Among the most notable of the de feated Unionists are Lord Castletown Lord Mayo the

Fitzgerald family and Lord Castle ross won a seat in Killarney where his property is situated The result of Lord Dunravens contest is not yet declared but it is believed to be very close Only 60 per

other chapter in her history Never were the Irish people more thoroughly aroused and their spirit of nationalism more fervent All or ganizations no matter what their special purpose all parties irre spective of their policy all leaders regardless of their particular meas ures for redress or advance of Irish interests are being pushed by that irresistible force the will of the people to recognize that land re forms tenants Iights education taxation poor relief and all other matters to be reformed and griev ances to be redressed are to be laid aside for the present or embodied iin the one prevailing desire the everlasting and unquenchable ambition for Irish nationality The party that fails to heed the voice of the Irish people at this time is doomed to disintegration or if it dares to 1 1oppose to be classed among the enemies of their country The many evils which the Irish people suffer and the organizations and parties formed to seek redress all patriotic and commendable have contributed their part by organizing and instructing the people how tto contend for justice and by their speeches writings and agitation attracted and forced the govern ments and the people of the world to listen to and consider Irelands condition and her rights if no under the laws of nations at least L of humanity Btit these variousi organizations and leaders each urging different measures though all sincere and just conflict witheach other and confuse the question and have been productive of but meagre results Which of these measures should have precedence and the united support of the Irish parties and leaders was the rock on which the splendid and effective organization of the old Home Rule and later the Parnell party split into warringfactions and did what England could not do rendered them ineffective and powerless for r any goof to Ireland or her people But neither the Home Rule or Par nell parties as a result of their con r tentions loss of prestige and power left any traitors whose partisanism made them enemies of their country as well They may have retired from active participation in Irish affairs or continued to advocate the policy they approved ignoring but not opposing other parties or movements M following their own policies r and chosen leaders and the result though it be more organizations policies and leaders than probably ever before in Irelands history is not one to encourage her enemies b for all those organizations far from being antagonized and thus induced to do the enemies work of destroy fag each other have developed fos tered and are imbued with a sentiment above all others that will in duce the leaders to bring about unity or if they refuse will bring unity despite the leaders and par ties Regardless of everything else the Irish people want they are unanimous in the desire and anxious to begin and push to success the cause of nationalitythe right to govern themselves Thus with high hopes they looked to the conference called to meet in Dublin April 4 of representatives of all the parties to endeavor to map out son e policy plan of organization leadership and action to at tain this end The acceptance of the proposition by all the leaders led to the belief that the desired J result would be attained But it I v was not The Parnellites Accepted w- L r the proposition on condition that aL preliminary conference of the lead ers be held to discuss the situation arrive at a better understanding and1 map out some definite line of pro ceedure to present with their in dorsement to the conference This suggestion seems to have been ig nort attend the conference While their absence caused disappointment iit did not cause what Irelands enemies expected and hoped for en mity denunciation and ignoring of the Parnellites by proceeding the work of the conference without and in defiance of them The con ference though regretting the dila tory action of the Paruellites did not doubt their sincerity nor tlu- wisdom of their

suddenly come into un enviable notoriety by reiterating in a speech at a dinner of the Friendly Sons of St Patrick the statementtl that the friendly attitude of Eng land toward America the condition of other Europea- e powers against us in our war with Spain He is being denounced by the Irish papers and has been ex pelled from several Irish organiza tions As that statement was lie emanating from London and has been branded as such by the diplo- r matic representatives of the European powerf in Washington backed up by the reports of American I ministers at the various EuropeanI courts Judge OBrien certainly deserves all the abuse he is receiving for quoting it in his laudation oi the Englisha queer sort of lauda tion for a St Patricks day dinner anyhow Right Reverend Monsignorr Conaty of

In the recent Chicago Mayoralty campaign there were yarious schemes for getting boodle one of which was the CeltoSaxon Union claiming a membership of 250000 Irish and Irish Americans But the Chicago politician is wily and neither of the campaign com mittees would nibble the bait Mr Eckhart manager of the Republican committee said the name Gordon Murray given by the union representative who called on him did not sound very Irish An in vestigation showed that the Celto Saxon Union of 250000 members was composed of a few Scotchmen Englishmen Canadiansmost of them not even votersand ward heelers The only Celt about it was in the name It may be interesting to those who insist that foreigners are ig norant antiquated and lacking in public spirit as compared with the average American to know that the only States which show a majority of fdreignborn over natives in their population are those which remaking the most rapid progress in development wealth and national prominence These States dud their percentage of foreign population are California 5o4 Wisconsin 53 Minnesota 59 and North Dakota 65 Which is it Last week a special correspondent of one of the leading dailies reported titan

and Ills Society Under Ills Influence the Swell of Really Democratic Move ment AVas Felty WHAT WAS ACCOMPLISHED BY UNITY OConnells leadership of the move ment for Catholic emancipation became virtually established about the beginning of 1811 Ile avowedl himself repeatedly to be an agitator with an ulterior ob ject says Lecky and declared that that object was the repeal of the union Desiring as I do the repeal of the union he said in one of his speeches in 1313 I rejoice to see how our enemies promote that great object They delay the liberty of the Catholics but they compensate us most amply because they advance the restoration of Ireland By leaving one cause of agitation they have created and they will embody and give shape and form to a public mind nndn public spiritNothing can be snore untrue contin ues Lecky than to represent the repeal agitation as a mere afterthought designed to sustain his OConnells flagging pop ularity Nor can it be said that the pro ject was first started by him The deep indignation that the union had produced in Ireland was fermenting among all classes and assuming the form some times ofn French party sometimes of a social war and sometimes of n constitu tional agitation It would be tedious to folow into minute detail the difficulties and the mistakes that obstructed the Catholic movement and were finally overcome by the energy and the tact of OConnellSeveral times the movement was menaced by government proclamations and persecutions Its great difficulty was to bring out the public opinion of the whole body of the Catholics actively and habitually into the question For the first time under the influence of OConnell the great swell of really democratic movement was felt The simplest way of concentrating the new enthusiasm would have been by a system of delegates but this would have been rendered illegal by the convention act On the other hand the right of petitioning was one of the fundamental privileges of the constitu l isrlihtOConnellofn practiced lawyer to violate contin ually the spirit of the convention act while keeping within the letter of the lawThe Government issued proclamation after proclamation against OConnells society but by continually changing its name and its form he generally succeeded in evading prosecution These early societies however all sink into insignifi cance compared with that great Catholic association which was formed in 1824 The avowed objects of this society were to promote religious education to ascertain the numerical strength of the different religions and to answer the charges i against Catholics embodied inhostile pee titions It also recommended petitions unconnected with the society from every parish and aggregate meetings in every county The real object was to form a gigantic system of organization ramifying over the entire country and directed in every parish by the priests for the purpose of petitioning and in every other way agitating ill favor of emancipationThe of the Catholic association became every week more striking The Catholic rent a system of small subscriptions collected throughout Ire and to pay the heavy expenses attendant upon so great a project rose with ex traordinary rapidity from J17CO a week in October to 3500 a week in December 1824 The meetings in every county grew more and more enthusiastic The Government made a feeble and abortive effort to arrest the storm by threatening both OConnell and Richard Ialor Sheil with prosecution for certain passages in their speeches On the accession of the Wellington and Peel administration the Catholic association passed a resolution to the effect that they would oppose with their whole energy any Irish member who con sented to accept office under it An opportunity for carrying the resolution into effect soon occurred Sir Fitzgerald the member for Clare accepted the office of Prerident of the Board of Trade and was consequentlyobliged to seek reelection OConnell entered the lists against him The excitement at this announcement rose at once to fever height It extended over every part of Ireland and penetrated every class of society The whole mass of the Catholics prepared to support hint and the vast system of organization which he had framed effectually in every direction For the first time the land lords found that the voting of their tenants could not be controlled Fitzgerald withdrew from the contest and OConnell was elected Ireland was pow on the verge of revolution The whole mass of the people had been organized like a regular army and taught to act with the most perfect unanimity The British Ministers feeling further resistance to be hopeless brought in the emancipation bill Corn- S feuedly because to withhold it would be to kindle a rebellion that would ex tend over the length and breadth of the lAnd OOn K reh5 ISM ttRQbertPt1It- o l riII+ troduced the Catholic relief bill in Par liament The King had given to it a re luctant assent At the last hour the in trigues of Lord Eldon and the Duke of Cumberland had so far influenced his weak and dislngeiiious mind that he withdrew his assent to his Ministers policy on the pretence that he hhad not expected and could not sanction nuy modification of the oath of supremacy lIe parted from his Ministers with kisses and courtesy and for a few hours their resignation WitS in his hands But with night his discretion waxed as his cour age waned his Ministers were recalled and their measure proceeded The bill admitted Catholics to Parlia ment and to all 1 lay offices under the Crown except those of Regent Lord Chancellor whether of England or of Ireland and Lord Lieutenant It re pealed the oath of abjuration and mall fled the oath of supremacy It approxi mated the Irish to the English county franchise by abolishing the fortyshilling freeholder and raising the voters quali fications to 50 All monasteries and religious orders were suppressed and Catholic bishops were forbidden to as sume titles of sees already held by bishops of the church of Ireland The bill was passed by the Commons on March SO by a vote of 350 to 180 and in the Lords on April 10 by a vote of 217 to 112 It received the royal assent on April 13 HUSTLING General Commlttoe of the Catholic Knights will Be Held April 19 The meeting of the General Committee of the Catholic

met their King in council with The nobles of the land And by the force of argument Brought them to understated That the deity which they adored Was but an orb of light Commissioned at creations dawn To tell the day from night That He who ruled time universe And bade the winds be still Could plot away that solar speck If so it pleased Ills will Reasoning thus he showed them all The pagan blind belief Which trade them bend before the sun As their eternal chief Then holding up the shamrock the Trinity he explained The nature and the unity Where equaled three remained And told how God placed everything- In His eternal plan Where nothing disobeyed His will Save proud imperious man And yet said he this creature man When earth is passed away Is destined to a life of bliss Through Gods eternal day He ceased to speak and stillness reigned When lo a prince of state Bowed to the King and calmly said This God alone is great And I believe that I have heard Today in Tarns Hall That lIe who had raised the dead to life In Jesus Lord of all The Ardrigh then the high King rose And in his regal right Proclaimed that God had Patrick sent To spread immortal light The nobles bowed their homage paid And round that royal board They all declared that Patricks Got Alone should be adored From that day forth through Erins Isle The emblem fair was seen That symbolized the Trinity The little shamrock green So ever since the trefoil blooms Despite what tyrants say And decorates the fair and brave On every Patricks Day Though fifteen hundred years have passed That race still true remains Be it in a Balaclaya charge Oron Columbias plains YeS here they stand in freedoms land Full twenty millions strong Their fittest place this ancient race To combat human wrong For lucre twas shown on freedoms field When loyaltv was tried That Britains gold bought hireling hordes But never Irish pride- HemiceVashington knew well their worth In every nerve and joint When traitor Arnold sold the cause He picked them for West Point And Englands King at Fontenoy In defeated rage did say Cursed be the law that made us foes Of Irishmen today McClelian too at Malvern Hill Had fought the South in vain Till forward led as Jackson said That damned green flagagain To history proves their prowess thus By a record rich and rare Which includes Napoleons Waterloo For Wellington vas there That mid is then whod slur such men A rebel deep and dark But like the dog that bays the moon Hell tievcr reach his mark For hell be classed the tainted tool Of some ignoble band Whod rather serve a tyrant King Then aid Columbias land Hence justice will denounce the scribe Who dares untruths to write Of Sheridan Shields and Meagher Their gallant race to slight And ever made such bigot bear The stigma of disgrace To show the world in freedoms land The reptile has no place Officer OLoughlin in Standard now THE SPARROWSWERE EXTERMINATED Here is a story told by a truthful drum merOne of the slickest men I ever saw was a young fellow out West who was selling baking powder He happened to strike one town in which English spar rows were a great nuisance aud the authorities had offered a bounty on spar row heads The baking powder ma- nS V a golden opportunity to give his goods a big reputation and offered to exterminate all of tha sparrows in town His proposition was gladly accepted He selected a large vacant lot as the scene of his operations and every even ing he would go there with several bushels of corn which lie fed to the sparrows until they began to get ac quaintcd with him and came to the lot in bigger droves every day In the meantime he bought a barrel of empty capsules which he filled with the baking powder and then put salt on the outside of them When he saw that all of the sparrows in town were coming to the feed ground he lad a large tank of water placed there and was there for the grand climaxOn this eventful evening he took his salted capsules of baking powder to the lot instead of corn and threw them out to the unsuspecting sparrows Of course the salt made the birds thirsty and they immediately flew over to the water tank and drank and the result was something Awful The water melted the capsules and made the baking powder rise The birds tried to stay on the ground but the baking powder was too strong and com pelled them to rise straight up in the air and finally popped tbemopen1t rained popped sparrows all night and the next day not a single live one was visible It is needless to say that there is only one brand of baking powder in the town Richmond

Rose from ii liartcmler In Albany to Be a Millionaire l Anecdotes of n Man Who Ts One of the Electric Powers of the Age Cares More for His Wife alai Children Than All Stocks In Wall Street HAS ALSO BEEN A POWER IN POLITICS Anthony N Brady began life as a bartender he is now many times a million aire and the most interesting figure among the great manipulators of gas traction and electric stocks If the place where a man is born deter mines his nationality Brady is a French man If parentage decides he is an Irishman If the characteristics of ma turity differentiate men he is a Yankee says the New York World Scarcely fiftysix years ago in Lille France he was born of parents who were refugees from Ireland In his infancy they removed to a land still more hospit able and settled in Troy N Y There Brady went to school fought with the sturdy sons of the iron molders andenjoyed himself after the Trojan manner His schooling was short At fourteeu he faced the problem of earning a livelihood Brady at once went to Albany where he got a job in the Delavan House the famous old hotel that saw so much of political manipulation in half a century and more that its walls could tell strange tales if they could but speak His first job was as a bartenderIIn a little while he became cashier in the hotel barber shop having been promoted front the management of the bar In 1861 when he had saved enough money he opened a tea store In a short time it was the biggest thing in town Then began the first of the expansion movements planned by his busy brain Bradys tea stores grew up like mush inladjacentAlbany was beginning to grow out of the clapboard house and cobblestone pavement period As soon as the granite house and granite block pavement had passed the stage experiment Brady set about getting control of the granite out putHe branched out as a contractor There is greater profit in paving streets and Ibuilding sewers when you know how to handle men and have served an appren ticeshlp in a barroom and barber shop where their limitations and inclinations are noted by a shrewd observer The stone age had possibilities and Brady made the most of them The gas age succeeded Brady saw as quickly as anybody that this was coming The lighting companies of Troy and Albany were poorly managed he thought He would improve them by consolidation elimination of useless factors the aboli tion of competition and the introduction of cheaper manufacture- He learned the Tessle de Mote system of water gas production This was cheaper than the old method lIe lookedabout for men who would be useful in his en terprise Flower afterward Governor Murphy afterward Senator and Bene diet afterward friend of President Cleve land seemed the right sort The deals went through and Flower and Benedict realized that Brady was a clever estimator ofpropertiesThe ct of the Albany Gas Light Company was Bradys first great coup Thenceforward history repeated itself Flue Chicago Gas Company was bankrupt Chicago had immense possibilities Brady hustled thither He became an active trustee of gas stock secured quiet ly through the Fidelity Trust Company of Philadelphia the issuer Brady brought into Chicago Gas President Olcott of this Central Trust Company exGov Flower C K G Billings Walton Ferguson W J Campbell and a few others In a little while these gentlemen united in one corporation all the gas interests of ChicagoThe gas age was succeeded by the electric age Brady mastered electricity as he lead gas Albany again was the experimental point Of course having acquired the lighting and paving privileges of Albany it would not do to neglect transportition In his quiet way Brady seized the horse railroads He connected Albany and Troy by a new trolley line and ran cars so swiftly that the Delaware Hudson and New York Central railroads felt the competi tionThen came the famous Huckleberry road Brady had put down in Albany a patent track with peculiar framework connecting the joints In 1801 he got the putling and Westchester county After the track was laid the Brady con ern could not collect payment Hence the road fiftySix miles franchise right of way terminals etc were taken in compensa tion and turned into the Union Railway Company Perhaps this is what Brady had schemed for It marked Bradys entrance into the metropolis The metropolis was a fallow field awaiting Brady He conceived the idea of the Columbus avenue and Lexington avenue cable systems and become one MetropolitanStreet 30000000 It was on this contract that Brady gave his check for 1000000 to the cityaa security for carrying out the work Next followed tlie Proyidcnce R I oupTtJe ProY7denoestreet way s i LI y41 rIlW I l were in the markel Brady and Olcott heard of the situation Friday Friday night Brady left afternoonI quiet way On Saturday a sharpeyed men who seemed to know wentIMonday morning Brady advised his asso dates to go ahead By noon the street railway had passed into the control of the Brady syndicate for 13000000 This has been one of the most profitable investments that the street railway kings had ever made In 1894 Brady strolled to Brooklyn He took the air and the control of the street railways Long Island Traction had made a mess of the matter and the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company was formed The 250 miles of road were capitalized at 20000000 or so and ma nipulation began Some people have made fortunes out of this stocknot the original investors ExGov Flower figured in the gossip of the street as the power behind the traction company but Brady was no spectator The latest and greatest deal was the merging of the big Walker Electric Company with the Westinghouse Company which equipped the Brooklyn bridge and which eventually will equip the Manhattan IIL Flower Belmont and Brady financed this 25000000 dealIn politics too Brady has been a power When Croker came back from Wantage the last time and there was talk of his taking the Mayoralty nomi nation instead of deputizing the clerical cares to a subordinate those who know said Wait The Big Four had not been consulted Murphy of Troy Slice Ban of Buffalo and New York and Brady of Troy Albany and elsewhere were meant by the Big Four Early in life Brady married Marcia A Myers daughter of a Vermont Probate Judge lie made his home for many years in the threestory brick dwelling on Willett street Albany His wife and children Brady cares more for than all the stocks in Wall street There ore two boys and the four girls with Mrs Brady When Brady is in New York Mrs Brady and some of the children free quently join the silent multimillionaire and a jolly theater party is formed His tastes arc simple a game of cards or a small theater party measure the extent of his recreations In religion he is a Roman Catholic while his wife is a member of the Episcopal church Their eldest son Nicholas entered the class of OJ at Yale Their oldest daughter is Mrs James C Farrell son of the old proprietor of
