was IrishIrish from Colonel to drummer boy It carried the 1flag of Erin side by side with Old adthenhonor of both The army records say it cast no discredit on either The Colonel andshad been a soldier of fortune in Mexico and Central America the men bronzed from exposure to the Southern sun hardened in campaign bivouac and bat tie marched with the free swing which characterized time army of the West and which later displaced the automaton rigidity then thought necessary in the regular army After service in the Tennessee and Mississippi campaigns the regiment was under orders to join the forces before Vicksburg where the seige was then in progress From their bivouac outside Memphis the men for an entire day had looked longingly upon the city and planned numerous diversions therein none of which however was allowed to occur No leave was granted and it was not until twilight that orders were re ceived to march directly through the town to the levee where the transport was waiting 1The route lay through Little Ireland the Confederate stronghold in Memphis where troops had been frequently stoned in passing and where no welcome could be looked for It was a gloomy narrow way that led through it The night was pitch dark and the street was imperfectly lighted by occasional gas lamps From packediwhose faces were darker than the night and whose attitude hands behind themsuggested that everready brick Dislike contempt hatred were in every face Sullen silence was the only greet ing signalYthe flags were swung free and at the same moment the band struck up Garry Owen A gasp a cheer a roar followed and a moment later the mob was a shouting welcoming throng some em bracing the soldiers in the ranks some standing with bared heads andstreaming eyes as time green flag was marched past others calling down blessings on their countrymen Then there was a wild rush back to their tenements and then laden with food and liquor cheer the population of Little Ireland followed

Irish World though it was not objectforthe union of the Irish Nationalist rep resentatives in Parliament It has been hoped that nil the representa tives Parnellite as wellas anti Par nellitc would be present for all hall been invited but Mr Redmond and his following did not attend the alleged reason being that n committee meeting or caucus had not been held previously to arrange a programme or basis of action for the conference Such caucus it appears was to have been called but preventitabsent the conference was by no means a failure even with leference to the main purpose of the gathering Resolutions were passed which made it evident beyond doubt that the vast majority of Irelands representatives are for union arefthoroughly in accord with the patriotic sentiment of the Irish people Here for example are some of the resolutions which the conference adopted All Irish Nationalists to be reunited in one party on the principles and consti tution of the old Parnellite party as it existed from 1885 to 1890 The reunited party to be absolutely independent of all British political parties The main object of the united party to be to secure for Ireland a measure of home rule at least as ample as that emr1yoc3ietiInthg Lille ofl G and1893f Time party also to fight on the old grieve ances notably those connected with land labor taxation and education No Irish Nationalist can say that these are not sufficiently thorough as regards the questions to which they refer No independent can ask for more inde pendence of British parties than is here adopted into the platform of limb Irish party consisting without the Redmond ices of nearly threefourths of time total Parliamentary repiesentation of Ireland The direct effort made by the conference for union was a proposal to appoint a committee to meet a committee of Mr Redmonds party with a view to devising the means of reunion This proposal would have passed but for the refusal of T M Healy to agree to be a member of the committee The cone ference therefore had to give up the idea 1of the committee and content itself with passing a resolution declaring its patriotic purpose as follows We respectfully submit to the con sid eration of our absent colleagues in the Irish Nationalist representation and to the judgment the country these decla rations including those above quoted sand we express our readiness to attend at a future conference for the purpose of discussing in a friendly spirit these and any other proposals which may be ifnthis plan which we think the most hope ful be still declined we are prepared to consider favorably any other means which may be suggested for the purpose of bringing about such discussion CARTER REJOICES Chicagos Mayor Sends Congratulations on Irelands Triumph The act

the Kentucky Irish American We fully appreciate the I compliment the more so since iitII was unsolicited and shall endeavor Ii I to prove worthy of it We have devoted space to labor matters and I frequently made suggestions as we deemed best for labors interests We will continue to do so The dissensions in local labor circles we f everyfway try to heal We have not nor will we take sides in the conten tion question the sincerity impugn the motives asperse the characters or denounce the objects of either nothing but injury and disaster can result to labor from such a course and those who expect us to do so will be disappointed We know most of the prime movers on either side of the controversy and though we have not always agreed with them and most certainly do not approve of the division and rivalry between them we admit they have done faithful and effective work for labor in the past and still desire to do so but will not be likely to succeed by persisting in contention antagonism ridicule and abuse So we shall not encourage a continuance of the wrangle which has al ready gone too far and can not be settled any too soon for the best in terests of the working people We believe and experience has convinced us in the belief that only by peace harmony and unity can labor maintain the respect and syiy patby of the public that only with the aid of public good will can it remedy grievances and better its condition Believing this we shall strive to heal not widen the breach to unite labors workers and make friends for labor not divide and make labors workers enemies of each other to be ridiculed and con demned by the public Those who do not approve our course are perfectly welcome to pursue their own in this free land till they see the error of their ways or have demonstrated as has been done heretofore that the working people can not long be led by those whose only argument is denuncia tion whose only motive is revenge and only object is destruction of their rivals regardless of the re sults to the whole Rather will they realize that if we can not agree as to who shall lead and how to proceed we shallat least agree not to fight and tear the house down about us And you know when ttheLouisville workmen conclude to have peace what they do with those who still persist in kicking The Building Trades Council at its meeting Thursday night also c gave us a unanimous indorsement We dont take sides in the City Hall or any other factional fights but give credit where we believe it due Mayor Weaver and the Board of Safety are decidedly right in en forcing the rule that city officials and employes must pay their debts or lose their jobs as they gave several policemen and firemen to understand the other day The man with employment who will not pay his debts is certainly not the tY kind of man to hold a public posi Iou of trust and as they are paid by the citizens they should be b made to pay the citizens for what they get from them They enjoy perquisites and privileges enough without also living off the public We welcome the Enquirer official w organ of the Central Labor c Uiiion of Chattanooga Tenn It f is small but newsy and full of vim f J- ry RESORTING TO RUFFIANISM No organization has grown so universallyIpur pose of which is to secure the full tenIeviction and unjust or de struction of their property defend them against unwarranted legisla tion and prosecution and finally to seek further concessions for the people by amending the law so they may become freeholders as wellas tenants responsible and paying tithes to the Government thus dispensing with the landlords That such a proposition meets with the unbounded approval and enlists the hearty support of the tenantry 5is quite natural and they have come in crowds to the meetings which always result in the formation of a new league thus adding strength to the movement The leader and principal speaker is Mr William OBrien and his addresses though at times severe in the arraignment of the injustice and cruelty of land lordisni have never suggested any other than legal and peaceful means of redressThe of course do not approve of the United Irish League and for a time sought to check its growth by counter meetings and opposition speakers but their ef forts were futile and to OBriens credit it must be conceded that so far as he met any of the anti league speakers several of whom are able men he easily refuted their charges against the organization explained away the legal objections and came offvictor in the debate The courts were next resorted to and leaguers were arrested and prosecuted for alleged violations of law but these were dismissed without trial except in a few cases and in these the verdict was acquittal All this in stead of checking the growth of the league really attracted attention and excited sympathy for the league and aroused indignation against its persecutors resulting in more members and more leagues until it is now spread all over the agricultural portions of Ireland The last move against the league is desperate Up to recently all league meetings however large and demonstrative were always orderly and peaceful Within the past few weeks at meetings where Mr OBrien has attempted to speak he has been interrupted jerred in sulted and at two meetings but for police protection would have been attacked by parties strangers in the localities and who attended and carried out the same tactics at all the meetings It matters not who instigates such ruffianism its purpose is manifestly to prevent the holding of league meetings and if possible cause riot and bloodshed though the latter has thus far been avoided owing to Mr OBrien cut ting short his speeches appealing- to the people not to resent the ruf fianism and quietly disperse to their homes But at the meetings where Mr OBrien was attacked after leaving the speakers stand though the police ostensibly guarded him they really kept back the enraged people from his assailants who hastily retreated Such con duct if persisted in can have but one resultbloodshedand they who instigate it will be responsible Judge Scott of Richmond Ky has decided the vagrancy law un constitutional because in violation of the Federal Constitution which prohibits slavery in this country Few pf our city people are aware of M l A 1 l+ 7 l r 1y JoIJ td the provisions of this law which iis enforced out in the State and in deed in nearly all the Southern States Under it any one out of employment is liable to arrest as a vagrant or a tramp as they are generally called and the rural Jedge usually convicts the un fortunate who being friendless and unable to give bond for good behavior and that he will not live off of or annoy the community by begging or trespassing on their premises is fined and sold to the highest bidder who is entitled to hold him till by his labor the pur chaser is reimbursed Almost any workingman who has been South in search of work can tell you all about it And the Legislature of Kentucky friends of the working man enacted that law Yes and reenacted it since the adoption of the new constitution Working men will have to begin to look about and see how to save them selves from some of their friends Laws to restrict monopoly and unjust discrimination in trade may be proper but can be carried too far sometimes Arkansas has a law so sweeping that union miners on strike against a reduction in wages are to be indicted and prosecuted for combining against an employer and discriminating against non union miners and it is conceded that under that law no labor organ ization can legally exist in the State Further a recent fire in Little Rock caused a loss of 100 000 and the insurance companies can not pay the insurance without violating the antitrust law unless an agreement is made for payment outside the State Yet the Texas Legislature has a similar law pend ing and despite opposition of busi ness men and labor organizations is likely to pass it Reform is a great thing sometimes but some people can not realize that it 5is overdone till they have suffered the effects of an overdose Sumptuary legislation always reacts Two lovers footed it from Utica seven miles to Jeffersonville to get married After paying for the license the groom was broke and could not pay theMagistrate for performing the ceremony That official agreed to credit them and others offered to loan the money but the bridetobe refused saying she was too proud to be married on tick if she does live in a shanty boat They trudged home to earn the money needed and will then return to Jeffersonville and have the knot tied We will venture the prediction that that couple when hitched will go through life all right It seems to us that the man who invests his money in Indiana to avoid paying Kentucky taxes and employing Kentucky labor is rather nervy in raising a rumpus because he is not allowed to dictate who shall be nominated for

kingdom is her home and there as a rule she reigns supreme Just now she is busiest and oftentimes happi est because she is turning the house topsyturvy to clean it This period soI dreaded and not without reason by the male portion of the household could be rendered less of a bugbear by a little sys tem and forethought on the part of the mistress of the house Take one room at a time thoroguhly clean it and rear range it before proceeding to the next oneThe parasols this season are what could be called dreams so perfect are they in their loveliness They come in all the various colors and shades to match every costume The sun umbrellas with bod ices are very chic and much in demand VWhen on youi summer outing be sure and have plenty of shirt waists and a short skirt to tramp through the woods u SAMUEL GOMPEUS President of the American Federation Labor climb the mountains or to wear when roving VThe question of a rainy day dress is being agitated all over the country but somehow it does not seem to make much advance A few progressive women in each city start the movement and then it is carried on in a desultory way for a few weeks interest is lost and it is dropped outtif sight altogether What the women really lack is the one essential of moral courage They feel they are the cynosure of all eyes and are attracting more attention than they care to at that moment If any one doubts the truth of this state ment let one watch the first woman seen on the street in a short skirt whether it be her bicycle suit or her rainyday cos tume and notice how every other per son irrespective of sex turns to look after the aforesaid shortskirted individual But the convenience of such a costume is not to be denied and time healthfulness of it is also a plea in its favor VThe last two weeks of bright spring weather have brought out the shoppers in full force and the stores are crowded with customers The array of spring goods is so bewildering that it is hard to make a choice But let the procrasti nators beware Ifa selection is not pos sible and time is taken to think the matter over when the choice has been made the probabilities are that the very thing on which ones heart is set has been taken by some one who has the happy faculty knowing at once whether the article will suit or not VIn millinery the widest latitude is given in both the style of trimming and the colors though in the latter purple in all its various shades from faintest lavender to darkest heliotrope seems to reign And to what a height the manufacturers have brought the art making flowers Take one of those beautiful darkshaded pansies for instance The first inclination is to raise it to the nos trils to inhale its fragrance But on closer examination one can see it is only a perfect imitation of a beautiful flower VThe long skirts which are now worn are voted a nuisance for street wear Even if not made with a demitrain they touch the ground and as a consequence one hand has to be used constantlyin keep ing it clear the mud and dust Many do not seem to mind the constant wear on the bottom which after one or two wearings produce fringed edges but the laws of hygiene and cleanliness clamor against sweeping the streets in this planner But few women know how to hold their skirts gracefully Most of them pull it so far to one side as to make themselves almost ridiculous If caught right fnthe center of the back about six inches below the belt and quietly raised two or three inches the effect is right and the end desired is also reached Miss GOSSIP SILVER JUBILEE There

of Erin began life actively as a deck hand on an Alabama river steamer in the palmy days of steam boating before the railroads removed most of its picturesque and comfortable craft from the inland

Finnegan became Captain and the cooks speech underwent another change Capt Finnegan yer honor will you please take your tay That was the cooks way of acknowledging that Finnegan had reached the top of the ladder And the story the good Han nis tells bristles with that worldly wisdom that comes of human experience There was a man in Mobile many years ago so the story goes who had a notable resemblance to Finnegan This man was noted for contracting debts and never paying them for thriftless habits gener ally and for partaking of too much strong drink A visitor to Mobile ap proached this

did before And neer afraid to meet him Was our brave old Commodore Upon the ocean sailing In pride and great renown Our Yankee vessel hailing- A British brig bore down Says the Commodore weve got em Boys up and blaze away And we sunk her to the bottom And her consort Trepassey Next right against us steering Came a saucy seventyfour In all her pride careering- To thrash the Commodore But each gunner plied his rammer And a ringing broadside poured And we brought the British banner And the main mast to the board Thus oer the ocean sailing We roamed from day to day In battle never failing To make the foe a prey In storm or sunshine never slack Our Commodore was he To trample down the Union Jack And sink it in the sea One eveas day was dying Andsinking into night With the British ensign flying The Sibyl came in sight Tie English captain hailed us As he down upon us bore And proudly answered Barry Our brave old Commodore This is the ship Alliance From Philadelphia Town And proudly bids defiance To Englands King and Crown As captain on the deck I stand To guard her banner true Half Yankee and half Irishman What tyrants slave are you Then with a voice of thunder Our guns began the fight Though battling against numbers And the foemans fleet in sight For the Hudson and the Shannon Gainst the minions of the crown We fought them till our cannon Brought the British ensign down Says the Commodore Well take her From before their very eyes With another broadside rake her Andwell bear her off a prize Then our round shot went careering Through their rigging and their spars And our crew began a cheering For the Yankee stripes and stars And streaming on the breeze aloft It waved in all its pride And on the foemans captured crafts Now sailing side by side O1 how our gallant sailors cheered Just as the sun went down And our good vessel homeward steered For Philadelphia Town There are gallant hearts whose glory Columbia loves to name Whose deeds shall live in story Andeverlasting fame But never yet one braver Our starry banner bore Than saucy old Jack Barry The Irish Commodore ABOUT KID GLOVES Economy in small things is often overlooked and if only more consid eration were given to this subject quite a considerable sum of money might be saved annually The careless manner in which a very large number of ladies treat their gloves is an instance in point and perhaps the following hints mayserve to show hew the reasonable care of kid gloves would resnlt in a re duction expenditure In time first place it may be pointed out that rough handling is especially disastrous to kid gloves and it very often happens that a new pair are split and ruined by jerking them on in a careless fashion Always put on a new pair of kid gloves for the first time long enough before they are worn to allow of due de liberation in the task When a pair of fine gloves are bought the purchaser should insist that they be fitted on in the shop then if there are any flaws they will be detected before the gloves are paid for and taken away Cheap gloves are generally risky in vestments but some of the best shops keep a fairly good line of gloves at low prices which are worth buying for com mon wear If strong and well made they will serve for shopping and morning walks or bad weather In putting on a glove be careful to get each finger straight Coax each one on by rubbing gently with the thumb and first finger until the fingers are down to the very ends In taking the gloves off turn the wrist over the fingers and take hold of the ends of the fingers through the wrist It wears a glove out badly to pull it off by catching hold of the finger tips Pnll the glove into shape and lay it aside carefully Silk should be kept to match each shade and gloves should be mended as soon as a break appears for the old proverb A stitch in time saves nine Is especially appropriate to these articles of attire Glove mending is delicate work which requires both skill and dex terity and when well done pays admira bly for the pains taken Glove powder should form one of the adjuncts to every toilet table and a pretty glove stretcher anotherFrench women set a good example and have made quite an art of putting on gloves and this is why a Parisiennes gloves last her four times as long as anybody elses Buttoning gloves should never be done in a hurry The wrist should be carefully and gently pulled straight and the but tons insinuated gently into the holes Use a glove buttoner always it ruins both the button hole and the finger tips to button them withbut After purchasing a

seemed a daring statement but when I came to consider the matter I saw there was much wis dom in my friends remarks A woman with a neatly dressed carefully arranged head will be neat in all things moreover the way that her hair is done shows whether she is careful as to her personal adornment Of course she nay arrange- it as she likes according to the prevail ing fashion and at the moment fortuate ly for us all there are two distinct fashions each decidedly modish French women adhere still with great affection to the small knot of hair on the very top of the head The loose hair all round the nape of the neck is no longer seen it is carefully waved and drawn up neatly to the top of the head In the front the hair is gently waved and brushed off the face a few tiny curls being visible on the temples and sometimes a solitary one down the center of the forehead The arrangement of these of course must be made to suit the individual wearer The way sonic people have of touzlimmg their hair and making it appear as if it were never combed is to be deprecat ed it is not in good taste nor can it be called anything but slovenly r a I f4f A if i t I Walsh the sTailor i jAYEj i

returned i Kerry was E Harrington who was sup ported by all classes McDonagh Mahony County Councillor was returned also a District Councillor for Castlequin divis- Ion in which he resides His election was very popular though a Justice of the Peace and landlord he has always been a strong Nationalist Now that the elections held under the local government act are over the workers of Ireland are entitled to be congratulated upon the fairly large number of representatives they returned as Borough Councillors Urban Councillors and Poor Law Guardians In several of the Irish cities and large towns they have done remarkably well On the Carlow County Council there will be one elected Unionist Walter Mc Murrough Kavanagh who despite his policy is rather a popular candidate Mr Kavanagh had
