morning to witness the great Kentucky Derby D J M e PATRIOTISM Chaplain Daly Sees in Roosevelt Its Highest Type In War and Peace The Rev rather William J B Daly chaplain of the Sixtyninth regiment lectured on American Patriotism in Carnegie Hall in aidof the Catholic Boys Association Archbishop Corrigan introduced the speaker who said in part American patriotism is something of which we may well be proud It has causedevery great nation of the earth to turn an inquiring eye on us When we know that Old Glory calls to us for help we are one people and put aside all sec tional differences This time a year ago the American eagle was screeching its loudest and telling of war We are not a pugnacious people and considered the matter calmly and debated it coolly But mark you our calmness is much more to be dreaded than an older nations fiery outburstPatriotism is the highest and broadest kind of love it represents in all its beauty and power the love of family and self and friends and home it is founded in justice and right A patriot is one who cuts home ties for the sake of country and takes the wronged and downtrodden as his children The highest type of patriot is such as that man who fought at San tiago andjter the war devoted himself just as strongly to the arts of peace I refer to Gov Roosevelt He not only aids the country materially but he bequeaths to posterity a noble heritage in the form of a beautiful character for American youth to emulate Our country though young is in bat tle a giant We now take our place in the front rank of the nations of the earth in consequence of the patriotic uprising of the people to enforce the principles of justice in Cuba When our regiment left for the war it was forced on my mind thatpatrotsmiciinspiring ndnllob ling There is but one feeling that goes beyond the love of self home and family and that is duty Duty leads the soldier to war In camp amid all the sufferings from fever and other ills I never heard a man say I am sorry I sacrificed so much and came to fight for my coun try There is another kind of patriotism that has no army or navy the patriotism of peace Some of us went into battle that we might have peace It is a pleas ure to feel that we live in thisgreat land the home of the brave and the free DEATH OF PATRICK SHEA Another Old and Respected Citizen Passes to His Reward Mr Patrick Shea aged

battle of Lexing ton and Concord to attest anew our patriotism our love devotion and allegiance to the Republic of the United States of America to recall the lessons taught us by tile yoemanry of those two little Mas sachusetts towns unknown in history on April 18 1775 yet before the setting of the sun on the 10th had won for them selves renown as imperishable as that won at Marathon or Thermopylea One hundred and twentyfour years ago in the neighboring State of Massachusetts the first battle was fought to establish the principle that there should be no taxation without representation and that all gov ernment should rest on the consent of the governed I will not trespass upon your time by recalling the events which led up to the American revolution nor those seven years of bloody and terrible war We established a government and framed a constitution founded on universal suf frage giving a vote to the good and the vicious the wise and the ignorant Thus far we have been a prosperous people because in our democracy there have been no inequalities of wealth and con dition that we believed would be perma nent We are a composite nation comprising people from all the countries of Europe with about oneseventh of them of Eng lish origin yet when we hear the foolish speeches and read the foolish articles of the minority in reference to AngloSaxon ism and blood being thicker than water we realize the important and necessity of the work inaugurated by the American Irish Historical Society in recalling and recording the deeds of Irishmen and their in America We find on the rolls of the minutemen of Lexington over 160 Irish names and Col James Barrett of Concord and Dr Thomas Welsh who were prominent in the days battle were of Irish descent We find Rico the name of Hugh Cargill who to 4 gether with one Bullock saved the town records of Concord from the ravages of the British soldiery Cargill died in 1709 and the inscription on his tomb records his birthplace as Ballyshannon Ireland1 lie came to America in 1774 in time for the Concord fight He bequeathed to the town the Stratton farm for the use of the poor Many of the men who fought on that I as on every other day of battle during I the revolutionary war claimed Irish birth i or Irish ancestry This society is endeavoring to collect manuscript letters and papers throwing light upon the part borne by the Irish race that we may have our full shareof the glory of our coun try No more or less also that by critical scrutiny and analysis that we may dis cover the truth giving the credit to all This is a duty we owe these brave de voted selfsacrificing men who perilled so much for this Government pnder which we live and whose benefits we- hope to transmit to our posterity We are not unmindful of the dangers threatening us at the end of the century from within and from without We recog nize the fact that if this republic is to be preserved we must call a halt to this awful headlong rush for wealth holding up some nobler object of ambition A great writer has said The finest fruit held up to earth by its Creator is the finished man What our country needs today is true men men who recognize the truth of Platos maxim Justice is the health of the State Where can we find in history better types of true manhood than among the founders of our republic many of them of our own race and blood This country has passed through four wars and in our time many are filled with the lust for new conquest May we not well pause on a day like this and see whither we are drifting Shall we seek time friendship and alliance of the great robber nation of the world whose flag is known where rapine and wrong has been done to weak and feeble race or shall we adhere to the doctrines laid down by the Father of our country and observe good faith and justice toward all nations cultivate peace and harmony with am Religion and morality enjoin this con duct can it be that good policy does not equally enjoin it It will be worthy of a free enlightened and at no distant period a great nation to give to mankind a magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence Who can doubt that in the course ot time and things the fruits of such a plan would richly repay any temporary advantages which might be lost by a steady adherance to it Can it be that Providence has not connected time permanent felicity ofa nation with its virtue The experiment at least is recommended by every sentiment which ennobles human nature Alas it is ren dered impossible by its vices The nation prompted by illwill and resentment sometimes impels the Gov ernment to war contrary to the best cal culations of policy The Government sometimes participates in time national propensity and adopts through passion what reason would reject At other times it makes the of the nation sub set vient to projects of hostility by pride ambition and other sinister and pernicious motives The peace often sometimes perhaps the liberty of nations has been the victim So like wise a passionate attachment of our nation for another produces a variety of evils Sympathy for the favorite nation facilitating the illusions of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists and infusing into one the enmities of the other betrays the former into a participation in quar rels and wars of the latter without ade quate inducement of justification It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concession by unneces sarily parting with what ought to have been retained and by exciting jealousy illwill and a disposion to retaliate in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld and it gives the ambitious corrupted or deluded citizens who devote themselves to the favorite nation facili ties to betray or sacrifice the interests of our own country without odium some times with popularity gilding with the of a virtuous sense of obliga tion a commendable deference for public opinion or a laudable zeal for public good the base or foolish compliances of ambition corruption or infatuation Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence I conjure you to believe me fellowcitizens the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most bane ful foes of republican government But that jealousy to be useful must be impar tial else it becomes the instrument of the influence to be avoided instead of a de fense against it Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike ofanother cause those whom they actuate to see danger on only one side and nerve to veil and even second the art of influ ence on the other Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorites are liable to be suspected and odious while its tools anti dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people to surrender their interests The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations to have with them as little political connection as possible So far as we have already formed engagements let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith Here let us stop- Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have no relation or if any CONTINtlRD OJl THIRD PACK 1 q CURTAIN LAUNDRY and never follow In laundering lace at 20c a pair gives en Work called delivered First class MAD BABEY 625 Sec Telephone 2631

and time manner in which the deedwas done throws in the shade the Oriental fables detailed in The Arabian Nights The discovery and development of the farfamed Comstock lode on the eastern slope of Mt Davidson Nevada poured a river of gold into the coffers of the owners From the various mines of that treasure mountain 320000000 were taken out between 1850 and 1870 and more than oue third of this great sum went to the big four A week after he had been paid for his Nevada county mine Fair went over the mountain range to Calaveras on a visit He had known there a family named Rooney from the north of Ireland and they had been his friends in his struggles upward There was a jolly ambitious girl in the family and she and Jim had become great friends while she waited on the miners in her fathers little merchandise store at Douglas Plat She had promised Jim to marry him when he struck it rich Now Jim clammed his brideThey were married by Father Casey- A fortnight later the bride and groom started from the Comstock lode at Vir ginia City They made their bridal tour with a mule team and in a big lumber wagon over the Placerville and Red Dog trail 200 miles across the mountains to Nevada All their household effects were in the back of the wagon and their cap ital was in Jims leather belt and his skill for mining Years later when James G Fair was the richest miner on earth he used to say the days of that journey were his happiest All the Fair children were born in a little twostory plain wooden house in Virginia City Time daughters inherited ltheir fathers dark bright eyes and his pink and white complexion When little children they were like the other chil Jliendifferent after they became enormously rich from what they were when they were poor The Fair girls were always popular with their associates Today everyone who remains in the decayed old mining camp has anecdotes of how Mrs Herman Oelrichs and Miss Virginia Fair used to play out in the street with the girls of poor Cornishmen and found fun in making mud pies with children reared in poverty The Italr girls received their education in convent schools Miss Theresa Fair married Herman Oelrichs in royal style in San Francisco several years ago Mrs Fair died at her home in October 1893 and Miss Vir ginia Fair went to live with Mrs Oelrichs m New York LIPTONS FLAG Sir Thomas Lipton has decided that the flag of

Sunday evening and as the Times indorses the Englishman it iis useless for the right reverend gen tlemau to offer any defense At a public meeting in Chicago to protest against expansion BishopI John Lancaster Spaulding of the speakers In his address he said England has never been a friend of this country and an Et glishman near the platform shottte Thats a lie I The Bishop ignore the interruption and continued his address Such conduct and language at a respectable meeting where ladies and gentlemen wer present regardless of its object stamp the fellow as a blackguard When he publicly disputed a statement by a man of the known learning of Bishop Spaulding he prove himself a conceited fool and when he insulted a clergyman he showed he was a coward for any one no matter what his belief or whether he has any belief or religion who insults a clergyman whose calling precludes his resenting it prove himself contemptible second ouly to he who would insult a woman Of course the Bishop ignored the interruption As a clergyman he could not with selfrespect resort to 1 the only other alternative for a gen tleman to treat a blackguard kicl him out of the hall as he deserved not because he is an Englishman but because he is a blackguard am was out of place and rendered him self offensive to decent people That he is an Englishman is no credit to England nor will his con duct be other than condemned bj intelligent and wellbred English men as well as by all decent people Butas he is an Englishman tlu Times squibber approves his con duct and indirectly indorses the charge of falsehood against Bishop Spaulding He does not do so directly doubtless being cautionec by a lingering remembrance of the result of a recent libel suitbut his indirect way of not saying what iis meant is sufficiently clear to be un derstood Here is what he said It is related that Bishop Spaulding who declared at a Chicago antiexpan sion meeting that England has never been a friend to this country and was called down bya Britisher who said thats a lie continued his address without noticing the interrup tion Of course the Bishop didnt notice the interruption If anti expansion speakers were confined to facts they wouldnt have anything to speak about and the Bishop didnt intend to let any blarsted Britisher spoil his speech fey injecting a question of fact into the discussionThe squibber does not seem to know much about Bishop Spaulding and very likely knows less about the history of this coun try as the Bishop would promptly convince him should he condescend to notice the Times squibbers in sinuation about facts Bishop Spaulding is recognized as one of the most learned writers and orators of the country specially versed in its history Here is the Times squibbers chance ofa lifetime to become famous by pointing out and publishing to the world wherein Bishop Spaulding misstated history or to put it more to the point as the Times squibber has it show up injection of facts implied by the Englishman when he said Bishop Spaulding lied in asserting England has never been a friend of this countryHere in Kentucky where Bishop John Lancaster Spaulding was born reared educated and served as pas y hisyElevation to the episcopacy known and respected by the people regardless of their views on expan sion or religion and they will hard- Ily believe the Englishmans chargeI that Bishop Spaulding lied or ever I I I historyI I AND THE LION BACKS DOWN In recent years when the Bea and Lion meet the latter sets uproar ia and shows his teeth but generally I winds up by diplomaticall arranging matters and getting out of the Bears way Thus after all of Englands blustering protest threats of naval demonstrations and war to compel China to withdraw railway and other territorial con cessions to Russia we are told by the dispatches that Russia and Great Britain have signed an agree ment which puts an end to the dif ferences between the two power over railway and other concession in China Great Britain to refrain from pressing concessions in North China and Russia to recognize tin supremacy of British commercial in terests in the Yang Tse Kiang basin In other words Russia gets what she wants and allows Grea Britain to keep what she hasri concessionwhich by the way doe not interfere in any way with Rus sian plans for extending her commerce by securing open ports on tit Pacific for her Siberian railway establish steamship lines to Amer ica thus opening transportation for Russian commerce around the world England swore there woulc be war before this should be but has evidently changed her mind and Russias aggression against British interests will go on with out a fight because Russia and Great Britain have signed an agreement Diplomacy is a great thing to provide a soft place to let a blustering protester down easy and gracefullyreally saving him from being knocked down and kicked out of the way It might have been different il Uncle Sam could have been per suaded that the commercial in terests of the AngloSaxon races were identical in the Far East and he had joined England in con fining Russia to her frozen Siberian ports But then those blarsted Americans always did have a way of doing things differently from all other people especially England and are just now very busy minding their own business and making friends of all the world Russia in cluded Uncle Sam may not be versed in the science of commerce but he is wise enough to foresee that his ports and railways will be the recipients and beneficiaries of Russias transPacific trade and he ouldnt be induced to stop it even to please England and uphold AngloSaxon supremacy and interests Wonder if we will hear so much about English friendship in the future Mayor Weaver was certainly right in vetoing the resolution to purchase Central Park from the uPonts for 275000 and pay 115000 for a years option If the city wants the property for a park cud the owners will not sell at what is deemed a fair price why not institute condemnation proceedings ind have the price fixed by court as provided by law That is the way other peoplesproperty is taken for public uses when they will not gree to sell it at a fair price Why not the DuPonts Edward Atkinson swears by the welve signs of the zodiac that his alleged seditious matter objected to by the Government is only a I

miner killed two men blew up the mine burned the houses and drove the nonunionists to the mountains This may be the way to advance labors interests in the Vest but iit will certainly not do the cause of labor any good Somehow the American people dont approve of that method of redressing grievance and bettering labors condition and they generally put a stop to wha they dont approve Resorts to violence always injure those wit adopt such a course no matte what the provocation Such acts as those of the Idaho miners have done the cause of labor more harm than anything else in this country The tendency of labor organizations is to prevent such outlawry but evidently the progressive methods in labor matters have trot yet beet adopted in Idaho- Unionism means higher wages shorter hours of labor steadier habits and more general employment A sturdier manuood higher aspirations nobler impulse and greater independence materially morally socially and otherwise It short unionism means more justice and more real freedom If Attorney James Andrew Scott of Frankfort had happened to be within reach of that Englishman who called Bishop Spaulding a liar in the presence of ladies perhaps the

peculiar and Justin Smith was far more peculiar than any of the others lie lived on a good feral of his own in Duchess coun tyN Y He was a widower arid the management of his house was entrusted to Flora Floringer the stepdaughter of his deceased brother Edwin Flora was 17 years old pretty and efficient and Mr Smith in his peculiar way was very fond of her Justins chief assistant in farm work was his only son John 22 years oh- DO l John was as sturdy as his father but w more sensible and generoushearted- It was a rainy dayand John Smith was industriously repairing a broken harnessHe 1t on a log in a stud The gentle patter of rain on the roof seemed to have a soothing effect on the young man and he alternately whistled and sang snatches of song But his work became monotonous and he was feeling a biti lonesome when Flora entered the shed andstood beside him She smiled in a roguish way and kept one rand behind her back as if she held something ah wished to conceal What favor do you want now Flora asked John goodnaturedl- yI want you to fill the box in th kitchen with wood IIDut am I to have no reward I rather suspect from your attitude that you have something for me- III must have your promise that you will bring in the wood before I will tell youNonsense You know Ill do any thing for you III youre sure youll be rewarded you should add Ill add it then just to please you retorted John with a laugh Youre are so good Ill not keep you waiting longer Flora produced a rose and as a slight blush swept over her fair cheeks she slipped the flower into a buttonhole of his vest John caught her hands as she was about to step back and his hand some eyes were full of ardor This can not be all of my reward he said in a low voice tremulous with feelingOf course it is Let me go The alarmed girl began to struggle and to blush violently but the hands that could hold a plow firmly for hours behind a pair of strong horses were fully equal to the present emergency This is the only way to thank ya properly cried John as he suddenly drew the girl toward him and imprinted a kissI think youre real mean Join Smith said Flora in as indignant a tone as she could summon I know I am but I cant help it he rejoined Ilwont stay with you a minute longer she cried as he reluctantly re leased her Then Ill stay with you And he tau by her side Im sorry I gave you the rose YoullI1 never have another chance to get the i best of me x Then 111 take the last chance Flora be mine and Ill be yoursINo I thank yolfIYou dont mean it cried the oungII man as he caught her and bestowed anJJ other kiss You are my prisoner he murmured tenderly I How can 1 obtain my releaseIOnly by promising to become my wife promiseA I Whats all this kissing and fooling 1 mean cried a rough voice 1 The young man looked up in u startled way He knew he had been caught by his father In his haste and rapture as a lover John had thrown caution to the j winds and had forgotten that he might be observed in his act of ardent wooing It means that Flora has promised ton become my wife said John frankly and fearlessly Well Im sorry to hear it for Im afraid it may be necessary for jne to make you seek another situation than the one on this farm repeated Justin I glumlyI I know what is in your mindsaid leis son You probably do If you think Im going to give up my hold on the Edwin Smith farm in a hurry youve made the big mistake of your life The will asE neither you nor Flora can han have for gotten left Edwins farm to be under my j control during my life after which it will become Floras property It is provided that the only way she can receive ita sooner is for her to marry before she is i 21 years old If she marries before that age she is to obtain the farm outright at once Now I am supposed to know and do knew a good deal more than you andI Flora and my judgment is that I can manage the farm my brother left a good deal better than anyone else at least until you two are as old and sensible as you ought to be when it is time for me to die It is next to this farm and a larger and better farm than this one is and I can manage the two farms together with more profit and benefit to all of us than anyone else can Ive no objection- to your marrying Flora after shes 21 Indeed Id calculated that such a marrill age would be the thing to expect the I proper thing for you both provided yout could wait until the right time But nothing sudden or injudicious will be permitted by meftft Now John if youll promise solemnly and I know your word can be depende- dponnot to marry Flora until the day after her twentyfirst birthday you can stay here If riot you must go to Florida and help your Uncle Theodore manage ills orange grove You mart not leave lorida for four until IIVlaraI you do leave the State t eforethat a time as an unmarried man and I can fin 1 it put if you do Ill disinherit you 118ut if you will remain here as you ought to do until the end of the four years you can then marry Flora I sha be glad to have you in fact and you su she can live here on the other farm an 1 Ill manage both farms with your assistance I us long as I may live You sec Ive had a suspicion as t what night happen and Ive got every putting Floraesy I elopement John knew his father well enough to realize that supplications and arguments would be unavailing You make it almost as hard for me a it was for Jacob to obtain a wife No not even half as hard John for Jacob had to serve fourteen years befor he could obtain the wife he loved an youve got to wait only four years And if youll only promise not to make a fool1 of yourself you can remain here and1 yearsearcompletedI time to think this mat ter over youepromise to marry during that time I promise John and Flora retired crestfallen from the old manspresence During the ten days they had many serious talks and made such plans and decisions as seemedI to them best On the last day of proba tion John sought his father Ive made my decision I will not promise not to marry Flora before she iis twentyone years old Then you must go to Florida and stay there for four years or until you may be marriedof course you can yotu ll you I will accept your terms and go to Florida Justin Smith was quite surprised but such was his curious character that U was rather proud that John should have taken the course he lead The bOYs a
