If the Pope be only a deacon at the time of his election, the Cardinal Dean, the Lord Louis Oreglia di Santo Stefano, Bishop of Ostia and Velletri, will give him priest's orders and consecrate him bishop in the Sistine Chapel, observing the canonical intervals.

AMERICAN, 326 West Green Slrcel, LOUISVILLE, KY., SATURDAY, APRIL 15, 1899 the proposition on condition that a preliminary conference of the lead ers be held to discuss the situation arrive at a better understanding and map out some definite line of pro ceedure to present with their in dorsement to the conference. This suggestion seems to have been ignored, and the Parnellites did not attend the conference. While their absence caused disappointment, it did not cause, what Ireland's ene mies expected and hoped for, en mity, denunciation and ignoring of the Parnellites by proceeding to the work of the conference without and in defiance of them. The con ference, though regretting the dila tory action of the Parnellites, did not doubt their sincerity nor the wisdom of their request for a pre liminary conference of the leaders. for, instead of extending them the gloved hand they held out the olive branch, and took the first step in ignoring party lines and disclaim iugall purpose to assume control' or leadership in the proposed new movement or party by adopting resolutions presented by John Dil Ion and seconded by Michael Davitt IRELAND'S CRISIS. Ireland has reached a period which will undoubtedly form another chapter in her history. Never were the Irish people more thoroughly aroused and their spirit of nationalism more ferveut. All organizations, no matter what their special purpose; all parties, irrespective 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' lights, 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 in 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 ODDOse. to be classed among the enemies of their country. The many evils which the Irish people suffer, and the organizations aud parties formed to seek redress all patriotic and commendable, have contributed their part by organizing and instructing the people how to contend for justice, and by their speeches, writings and agitation attracted and forced the govern ments aud the people of the world to listen to aud consider Ireland's condition and her rights, if not under the laws of nations, at least of "humanity. But these various organizations and leaders, each urg' ing different measures, though all sincere and just, conflict with each other and confuse the question aud have been productive of but meagre results. Which of these measures should have precedence and the united support of the Irish parties aud leaders was the rock on which the splendid and effective or ganization of the old Home Rule, A. Christians, pagans or barbarians. "Our fathers became at first interested, then enthusiastic over the unaccustomed freedom granted them, aud determined that their sons should occupy a place second to none in literature, the arts, the And sciences and the professions. how well they succeeded I leave to the unbiassed opinion of the American people! Irishmen fought and died in the War of the Revolution. Irishmen signed the Declaration of Independence, fought again in the War of 1812 gloriously vindicated their right to citizenship during the civil war, and during the recent unpleasantness again furnished their adopted country with fresh evidence of their willingness to protect that flag of all flags Old Glory." Judge Morgan J. O'Brien, of New York, has suddenly come into uu enviable notoriety by reiterating in a speech at a dinner of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick the statement that "the friendly attitude of Eng land toward America prevented the condition of other European 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 Loudon, and has been branded as such by the diplo matic representatives of the Euro pean powerf in Washington, backed up by the reports of American ministers at the various European courts, Judge O'Brien certainly de serves all the abuse he is receiving for quoting it in his laudation 0 the English a queer sort of lauda tion for a St. Patrick's day dinner. anyhow. Americans was hopeless, and would sue for peace were it not for the influences and false promises held out to him by the Catholic Bishops, friars and priests, who were inveterate enemies of the Americans. And now the Filipino Junta at Hong Kong has issued a manifesto charging Aguinaldo's recent reverses to a conspiracy between the Americans and the Catholic church, whose "most subtle tdols are the Paulist Fathers, General Otis aud Archbishop Ireland."

Under His Influence the Swell of Kenlly Democratic Movement "Was Felt. WHAT WAS ACCOMPLISHED BY UNITY O'ConnelPs leadership of the movement for Catholic emancipation became virtually established alxmt the beginning of 1811. "IIeavowe.1 himself repeatedly to be an agitator, with an ulterior object," 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 1813, '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. Hy leaving one cause of agitntion they have created and they will embody and give shape and form to a public mind and n public troduccd the Catholic relief bill in Parliament. The King had given to it a reluctant nssent. At the last hour the intrigues of Lord F.ldou and the Duke of Cumberland had so far influenced his weak and disingeuious mind that he withdrew his assent to his Ministers policy on the pretence that he had 'not expected and could not sanction any m&lificatiou of the oath of supremacy. He parted from his Ministers with kisses and courtesy, and for a few hours their resignation was iu his hands. Hut with night his discretion waxed as his courage waned, his Ministers were recalled and their measure proceeded. "The bill admitted Catholics to Parliament and to all lay offices under the Crown except those of Regent, Lord Chancellor, whether of England or of Ireland, and I.ord Lieutenant. It repealed the oath of abjuration and modified the oath of supremacy. It approximated the Irish to the English county g franchise by abolishing the freeholder and raising the voters' qualifications to $i0. All monasteries and religious orders were suppressed and Catholic bishops were forbidden to assume titles of sees already held by bishops of the church of Ireland. The bill was passed by the Commons on March .'50 by a vote of .150 to 180, and in the Lords on April 10 by a vote of 217 to 112. It received the royal assent on!

The Executive Committee of the County Board meets Monday evening. Each division will take great interest iu the silver jubilee of Division 1. A new division has been instituted at Worcester, Mass., with fifty members. Division 4 will give its annual picnic in July. The date will he July 24 or 20. There are many who would like to meet James Brady at the meeting of Division 4. John J. Barrett, Thomas Camfield and Con Ford will represent Division 2 on the Hall Board. John Nolan, the insurance man, filled the chair of J. Charles Obst in Division 2 Thursday evening. The County Boa'rd meeting has been called for the next Saturday evening, April 22. This is official. Division 2 received eight applications and initiated three Thursday night. President Median was happy. The Irish Standard says the annual en tertainment to be given by Division 1 of St. Paul will be a "hummer." The Ladies' Auxiliary of Portland, Me., will have an anniversary entertain ment at the City Hall April 20. Oratory of the highest order was lis tened to by those present at the meeting of Division 1 Tuesday evening. Division 1 has kindly tendered the use of Hibernian Hall to the Ladies' Auxiliary for the evening of May 23. The editor of this column has accepted an invitation to be present at the next meet of Division 1 of New Albany. The County Board will have quit? ail amount of business to transact at its next meeting. All members should attend. The remarks of County President Mur- phv at the meeting of Division 4 Wednes day evening were very warmly applauded. Division 4 accepted the invitation to attend the social session and smoker of the Young Men's Division Tuesday evening. Division 1 of New Albany is steadily increasing in membership. Several .applications were refened to committees last Sunday afternoon. President Median has appointed a committee for the purpose of arranging for meetings of the entire order. This is a good move. Division 2 of Minneapolis attended mass and holy communion in n body at St. Charles' church Sunday morning. They appeared in full regalia. The Hibernians of New Albany held a very largely attended and interesting meeting last Sunday afternoon, when much business was transacted. The Rev. John F. Redican, of Leices ter, Mass., County Chaplain of the order, will address the united divisions and ladies' auxiliaries on Sunday, April 23. All the divisions of Fall River, Mass., attended holy communion in a body at St. Patrick's church last Sunday. The parade to the church was an imposing one. Ladies' auxiliaries were chartered in Fort Wayne, South Bend and Muncie, Ind., during the past month. The order is growing iu popularity throughout Indiana. The bazar of the Hibernians of Whit man, Mass., opened Wednesday. The opening was preceded by a parade and address by Hon. E. J. Slattery, State Presidtnt of the order. Thomas Garry, who has been in business for himself at Twelfth and Rowan since last November, sees to it that all Hibernians receive a cordial welcome when they call upon him. President Hennessy and the members of his division are hot after the Irish flag offered at the Dominican church fair. There was rejoicing when Will Phelau presented himself at the meeting of his division Wednesday evening. Every chair in Hibernian Hall was occupied when President Hennessy called Division 4 to order Wednesday evening. This speaks volumes for both officers and members. The Ladies' Auxiliary of Jeffersonville will receive their charter at the next meeting, which will take place Wednesday evening. There are ten members to be initiated. Twenty were admitted at the last meeting. Three most interesting and instructive addresses were delivered Tuesday evening by State President Martin Cusick, Tom Keenan and David O'Connell. They were listened to with close attention and their remarks were warmly applauded. Among those initiated by Divison 1 Tuesday evening were Thomas Garry, John Kelly and William Noone. They will add strength to this popular division Besides the above three applications were referred to the Membership Committee, Members of the Jeffersonville division have under consideration the advisability of securing a hall of their own. They have among their number several of the best business men of that city, and there is no reason why they should not be sue cessful. The regular meeting of the Ladies Auxiliary will occur on Sunday after noon, April 23. The session will be a social one, and they expect to see the faces of a large jjumber of their brother members present on that occasion. Gen tletuen, take our advice and attend.

Nor can it be said that the project was first started by him. The deep indignation that the union had produced in Ireland was fermenting among all classes, nnd assuming the form, sometimes of a French party, sometimes of a social war and sometimes of a constitutional agitation. It would be tedious to follow into minute detail the difficulties and the mistakes that obstructed the Catholic movement, and were finally overcome by the energy and the tact of O'Connell. "Several 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 O'Connell, 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 constitutionally pvaiUnftJn'mslCof, His, right. O'Connell contrived, with the dexterity of a practiced lawyer, to violate continually the spirit of the convention act while keeping within the letter of the law. The Government issued proclamation after proclamation against O'Connell's society, but by continually changing its name and its form he generally succeeded These early in evading prosecution. societies, however, all sink into insignificance 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 peagainst Catholics embodied 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 ev.ry parish by the priests, fot the purpose of petitioning and in every other way agitating ill favor of emancipation. "The success of the Catholic association became every week more striking. The Catholic rent (a system of small d subscriptions collected throughout to pay the heavy expenses attendant upon so great a project) rose with extraordinary rapidity from $ 1,750 a week in October to 1,500 a week in December, 1824. The meetings in every county The grew more and more enthusiastic. Government made a feeble and abortive effort to arrest the storm by threatening both O'Connell and Richard Lalor 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 consented 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 Frerident of the Hoard of Trade, und was consequently obliged to seek O'Connell 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 him and the vast system of organization which he had framed effectually in every direction. For the first time the landlords found that the voting of their tenants could not be controlled. Fitzgerald withdrew from the contest and O'Connell was elected, "Ireland was now 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, feeU ing further resistance to be hopeless, brought iu the emancipation Lill, Confessedly because to withhold it would be to kindle a. rebellion that would ex tend over the length and breadth of the land.

The next convention will be held with Division 1, of Brockton, the last Sunday in June. The thirtieth anniversary of Division 1 of Bridgeport, Conn., was held at Hiber nian Hall on April 3. The evening was pleasantly spent in vocal and instrumental music. Recitations and dancing were special features. 'John J. Hope, President of the division, opened the evening's pastime with a brief speech and called upon Delegate ames Whaley to act as toastniaster for the occasion. Mr. Whaley accepted and in his usual pleasing style reviewed the history of the order throughout the country, and in conclusion called upon Rev. Father J. C. O'Brien, who responded and in a very interesting manner showed the aims and objects of the order. County President Smith next responded with the day we celebrate, and proved that he was well versed in the history of the order. Mrs. Mulloy then recited "The Trial of 1708" in a clever manner. Rev. Father Donnegau was then called and he re sponded with a brief speech and in conclusion spoke in a pleasing way of the pleasure it gave him to be among the Hibernians on the thirtieth anniversary of Division 1. D'r T.' F.' Stanton spoke of the physical condition of the order, after which Treasurer James L.

Wettin is the patronymic of King Leopold of Belgium, of King Albert of Saxony, of Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria, of of the Duke of a d of the Duke the Duke of as well as of the of Prince of Wales and his brothers and of Prince Charles of Portugal. Wettin, who died In 1150, was a descendant of one Wittikind, who was a contemporary of the great Charlemagne. The majority of the reigning princes of Europe claim to be descended from Wittikind, among them being King Christian of Denmark, King George of Greece, Peter, Grand Duke of Oldenburg, and the Czar of Russia. The patronymic of these four rulers is Oldenburg, the Emperor of Russia being neither a Romanoff nor yet a Holstein-Gottoras has been stated. The Queen, prior to her marriage, was entitled to the patronymic of Azon she was Miss Azon, in fact. Of the same u name are the reigning Prince of and the Duke of Cumberland, or King of as he is now. The founder of the house of Azon died iu the year 904 and was Margrave, or Marquise of Este. It is for this reason that th; royal house of Great Britain has sometimes made use of the nauie d'Esfe, notably in the case of the Duke of Sussex, a younger son of King George III, who gave the name of d'Este, after mar riage, to his morganatic wife. e, Saxe-Weim1 n, p, Leich-tenstei- The following getns are from Irish Life and Character, by Michael Mac- donagh: "Bad luck to them Afraydees," said a Dublin carman the other day when an officer handed him a shilling afterdriving from Richmond barracks to the Kildare-streClub. "Why?" asked the officer. "Sure they've killed all the gentlemen that was in the army." The officer was so pleased with the veiled insult that he doubled the fare. An old gentleman was begged by his nephew to give up whisky, as the absten tion could undoubtedly lengthen his days. The uncle wrote back: "My dear boy, I tried your advice for one dav. and. upon my soul, you're right; it was the longest day I ever put in." "Why are Irishmen always laying bare the wrongs of their country?" asked some one iu the House. "Because they want them redressed," thundered Maj. O'Gor- au. An Irish navvy on the Holyhead boat was complaining to his foreman. "He'd not stir a finger himself to lift a red her ring off the gridiron, but he'd ask you to shift the Rock o' Gibraltar." et And saw its ancient race, He soon conceived their character Had courage, strength and grace; He met their King in council with The nobles of the land And by the force of argument Brought them to understand That the deity which they adored Was but an orb of light Commissioned at creation's dawn To tell the day from night; That He who ruled the universe And bade the winds be still Could blot away that solar speck If so it pleased His will Reasoning thus, he showed them nil The pagan blind belief Which made 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 God's 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 Tarn's Hall That He who had raised the dead to life In Jesus Lord of nil." 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 Patrick's God Alone should be adored. From that day forth through Erin's 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 Patrick's Day. Though fifteen hundred years have passed That race still true remains, Be it in a Balaclaya charge Or on Columbia's plains. Yesf here they stand in freedom's land Full twenty millions strong, Their fittest place, this ancient race, To combat human wrong. For here 'twas shown on freedom's field When loyalty was tried That Britain's gold bought hireling hordes. But never Irish pride. Hence Washington knew well their worth In every nerve and joint; When traitor Arnold sold the cause He picked them for West Point. And England's King at Fontenoy In defeated rage did say, 'Cursed be the law that made us foes Of Irishmen today." McClellim, too, at Malvern Hill Had fought the South iu vain, Till forward led, ns Jackson said, 'That damned green flag again." To history proves their prowess thus By a record rich and rare, Which includes Napoleon's Waterloo, For Wellington ,vas there. That mull is then who'd slur such men A rebel deep and dark, But, like the dog that bays the moon, He'll never reach his mark; For he'll be classed the tainted tool Of some ignoble band, Who'd rather serve a tyrant King Then aid Columbia's 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 freedom's land The reptile lias no place.

Here is n story told by a truthful drum mer: "One 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 man saw a golden opportunity to give his goods a big reputation, and offered to exterminate all of the sparrows lit 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 he fed to the sparrows until they began to get ac quaintcd with him and came to the lot in bicEer 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 had a large tank of water placed there, and was there for the grand climax. "On 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 them open. It 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 Item.

Record the Candidate on the First Line, Division on the Second. at. Anthony N. Hrady began life as a bar tender; 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 determines 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. years ago in Lille, Scarcely fifty-si- x France, he was born of parents who were refugees from Ireland. In his infancy they removed to a land still more hospitable and settled in Troy, N. Y. There Hrady went to school, fought with the sturdy sons of the iron molders and enjoyed himself after the Trojan manner. His schooling was short. At fourtceu 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 bartender. In a little while he became cashier in the hotel barber shop, having been promoted from the management of the bar. In 1801, when he had saved enough money, he opened a tea store. In a short time it was, the biggest thing in to"wn. Then began the first of the expansion movements planned by his busy brain. Brady's tea stores grew up like mushrooms in other parts of Albany and in adjacent towns. Albany 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 of experiment Brady set about getting control of the granite output. He branched out as a contractor. There is greater profit in paving streets and building sewers when you k"how how to handle men and have served an apprenticeship 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 abolition 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. He looked about for men who would be useful in bis enterprise. Flower, afterward Governor; Murphy, afterward Senator, and Benedict, afterward friend of President Cleveland, seemed the right sort. The deals went through, and Flower and Benedict realized that Brady was a clever estimator of properties. The contract of the Albany Gas Light Company was Brady's first great coup. Thenceforward history repeated itstlf. The Chicago Gas Company was bankrupt; Chicago had immense possibilities; Brady hustled thither. He became nn active trustee of gas stock, secured quietly through the Fidelity Trust Company of Philadelphia, the issuer. Brady brought into Chicago Gas President Olcott, of the Central Trust Company; 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 Chicago. The gas age was succeeded by the electric age. Brady mastered electricity as he had gas. Albany again was the experimental point. Of course, having acquired the lighting and paving privileges of Albany, it would not do to neglect transporti-tion.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 competition. Then came the famous "Huckleberry road." Brady had put down in Albany a patent track with peculiar framework connecting the joints. In 1891 he got the contract in his noiseless way for put ting down the same track in Harlem and Westchester county After the track was laid the Brady concern could not collect payment. Hence the road (fifty-si- x miles) franchise, right of way, terminals, etc, were taken in compensation and turned into the Union Railway Company. Perhaps this is what Brady had schemed . for. It marked Brady's 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 of the organizers of the Metropolitan Street Railway concern, capitalized at $30,000,000. It was on this coutraqt that Brady gave his check for $ 1,000,000 to the city as security for carrying out the work. Next followed the Providence (R. I.) coup. The, Providence (Street railways ex-Go- were in the market. Brady and Olcott heard of the situation Friday afternoon. Friday night Brady left town in his quiet way. On Saturday a reticent, sharp-eyeman, who seemed to know everything about traction work, went over the Providence rails, terminals, etc. Monday morning Brady advised his associates to go ahead. By noon the street railway had passed into the control of the Brady syndicate for 13,000,000. 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 $20,000,000 or so, and manipulation began. Some people have made fortunes out of this stock not the original investors. 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 "L." Flower, Belmont and Brady "financed" this $2"i,000,000 deal. In 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 nomination, instead of deputizing the clerical cares to a subordinate, those who know said: "Wait." The "Big Four" had not been consulted. Murphy, of Troy; Shee-haof Buffalo and New York, and Brady, of Troy, Albany and elsewhere, were meant by the "Big Four." Farly in life Brady married Mareia A. Myers, daughter of a Vermont Probate Judge. He made his home .for many years in the three-stor- y brick dwelling on Willett street, Albany. His wife and children Brady cares more for than all the stocks in Wall street. There are two boys and the four girls with Mrs. Brady. When Brady is in New York Mrs. Brady and some of the children frequently join the silent and a jolly theater party is formed. His tastes are 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 'CD at Yale. Their oldest daughter is Mrs. James C. Farrell, son of the old proprietor of the Albany Times-Uniod Fx-Gon, multi-millionai- FRANKFORT. DANIEL DOUGHERTY. THOMAS KEENAN. Echo of the Late Railroad Con ventionPersonals" and News Notes. Special Letter to the Kentucky Irish American. Fkanki'orT, Ky., April M. Last week was nn exciting one in political circles in the Capital City. The convention which met here to nominate a Demo cratic candidate for Railroad Commissioner proved to be a "warm number" in more ways than one. After two days and two nights of hard fighting between the Alexander and McChord forces the latter finally won on the first ballot. Senator Alexander withdrew before the ballot was taken. Before the convention adjourned a delegate by the name of Graves charged that Charles Somuiers, cf Elizabethtown, offered him 100 to give his proxy to another man and leave Frankfort. The Franklin county grand jury returned nn indictment against Sommers for bribery, and the trial is set for April 27. As no one witnessed the exchange of money but the contracting parties, it is but a question of veracity between the two gentlemen, and it is not believed that the court will do anything with the indictment. The progressive euchre given at Y. M. I. Hall by the members of the Church of the Good Shepherd choir was a great social success. Twenty-twdollars were realized, and the young people attending spent a very pleasant evening. Dancing was indulged in after the card party was over.
