Cargill died in 1709, and the inscription on his tomb records his birthplace as Ballyshannon, Ireland. He came to America in 1774 in time for the Concord fight. He bequeathed to the town the Strattou farm for the use of the poor. Many of the men who fought on that, as on every other day of battle during the revolutionary war, claimed Irish birth or Irish ancestry. This society is eti deavoring to collect manuscript, letters and papers throwing light upon the part borne by the Irish race that we may have our full share. of the glory of our coun try. No more or less; nlso Uint by critical scrutiny and analysis that we may dis cover the truth, giving the credit to all. This is a dutv we owe these brave, de voted, men who perilled so much for this Government under 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 Plato's 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 the 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 all?" 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 bv an exalted justice and benevolence. Who cau 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 the permanent felicity of a 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. and The nation, prompted by resentment, sometimes impels the Gov eminent to war contrary to the best cat dilations of policy. The Government sometimes participates in the national propensity, and adopts thtough passion what reason would reject. At other times it makes the animosity of the nation sub set vient to projects of hostility instigated by pride, ambition and other sinister and pernicious motives. The peace often, sometimes perhaps the liberty of na tions, has been the victim. So, likewise, 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 oue.the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation m 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 unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ll and a dispesion 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 facih ties to betray or sacrifice the interests of our own country without odium, some times with popularity; gilding with the appearance 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, 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 mipar tial, else it becomes the instrument of the influence to be avoided, instead of a defense against it. Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger on only one side, and serve to veil and even second the art of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorites are liable to be suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people to surrender their interests. The great rule of conduct forus in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political con nection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements let them be fulfilled with perfect good fuith. Here let us stop. Europe has a set of primary interests which to us have no relation, or if any, ill-wi- ll ill-wifellow-citizens, FRANKFORT. Death of Col. .Tunics Alloy, for Years Jailer of Franklin County.

One of the Franki'ort, crowds ever seen in this city on smallest County Court day was here Monday. The grand Dewey day celebration failed to materialize, the candidates for Governor put in the day in other sections of the State, and the sleepy old town among the hills slept calmly on, undisturbed by either political or patriotic demonstrations. The hero of Manila was not even remembered by the firing of a salute from historic old Fort Hill. The Governor and staff, State officials, militaiy officials and committee of civilians left Frankfort Tuesday morning for Chickamauga to witness the unvailing of the Kentucky monument. The Governor was accompanied by Capt. Graham, two Lieutenants and four privates of the local military company, which constituted Kentucky's military escort, while Georgia's Governor and staff were accompanied by an entire regiment and made a fine showing. Col. James Alley, Jailer of Franklin county, died at his residence in this city Saturday morning, after a long illness. Col. Alley was one of the best known men in the county, being twice elected Jailer. He was a sincere and loyal friend and a kind and affectionate father and friends extend husband.

The funeral took place Sunday afternoon from the Church of the Good Shepherd, Father Major officiating. appointed.byju.u'ge JosephJIolton-wa- s Moore to serve as Jailer until the November election, when a successor to Jailer Alley will be elected. Capt. Holton will probably make the race for the widow, and it is not likely that he will have opposition, as it is generally conceded that she should have the benefit of her husband's full term. A great deal of interest is being manifested in the proposed excursion to be run to Cincinnati on Sunday, May 14, by Division 1 of the Ancient Order "of Hibernians. The promoters intend to make a flying trip through the Bluegrass region, by way of Lexington and the Louisville & Nashville, giving the people of Frankfort and vicinity a splendid chance to go a new way to the Queen City and at the same time view new and beautiful scenery, the grandest in Kentucky. Fast time will be made, the train leaving this city early in the morning and arriving home about midnight. This will be one of the finest trips of the season, and everybody should embrace the opportunity and go. The close of the campaign for the Democratic nomination for Governor is now drawing near and each is confident of winning, although to many it appears that Senator Gocbel has a little the best of it. His forces are well organized all over the State, and those who have followed with admiration the career of the Kenton county man in the Kentucky Legislature during the past sis years, particularly the memorable struggle for Joe Blackburn for United States Senator, can not believe that defeat awaits the 'farmer champion of the and hard working and oppressed laborer. During the past few weeks Senator Goe-bHas steadily gained strength, and now, almost on the eve of the battle royal, all indications point to his nomination. Franklin county will send a solid Goebel delegation to the State convention. The Hibernian bicycle and base ball clubs are now in process of organization in Frankfort. Several members have purchased bikes, and a run to Shelby ville will probably be made in about two weeks, after which trips will be made to Lexington, Paris, Georgetown, and Versailles. The many friends of Col. W. D. Lewis will be glad to learn that his health is greatly improved since his trip to Payne's Depot He will be able next week to resume his duties as manager of the Frankfort marble works, and incidentally his Sunday trips to Lexington. Mr. W. L. Cushing, late of this city and a leading member of the local division of Hibernians, has accepted a lucrative position with the Falls City Ice Company of Louisville, where he will reside in the future. Capt. Martin O'Brien left Monday for Covington, where he will make his home for the future. Division 1 of the Hibernians tliereby loses a good member. The story that Gov. Bradley contemplates taking up his residence in California has been given another boom. The Goyeruor will leave Kentucky only in order to recuperate his health.

Archbishop Corrigan introduced the speaker, who said in part: "American patriotism is something of which we may well be proud. It has caused every 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 oue people and put aside all sectional differences. This time a year ago the American eagle was screeching its loudest and telling of war. We ore 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 nation's fiery outburst. "Patriotism 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 Santiago andter 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 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.

Mr. Patrick Shea, aged sixty-nin- e years, died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Noble Clark, 230G West Chestnut street, Monday evening. Mr. Shea was one of the best known and highly respected in Louisville. He was born in Ireland, but at an early age came to America and settled in this city. For more than twenty vears he was the leading merchant tailor in the Kentucky metropolis, and his store on Jefferson street, near Fifth, was the rendezvous for all patriotic in Louis ville. He was also noted for his liberality, always contributing to every worthy cause. Mr. Shea had been ill since last sum mer, but the immediate cause of his death is attributed to an accident. While playing with some children he fell and struck his head against a step, receiving injuries from the effects of which he never recovered. Mr. Shea left a wife and two children, Mrs. Noble Clark and Mr. John H. Shea, Secretary of the Board of Public Safety. The funeral took place Wednesday morning from St. Charles Borromeo church, which was filled with friends of the deceased. The remains were buried in St. Louis cemetery.

One years ago in the hundred and twenty-fou- r 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 suffrage, 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 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 day's battle, were of Irish descent. We find also the name, of Hugh Cargill, who, to-- , one-sevenAnglo-Saxon-is- The recent Vanderbilt-Fai- r wedding united two families prominent in the development of the East and West, besides combining two large fortunes. Both are estimable young people of American birth, who have chosen life companioift at home instead of joining in the unsavory scramble for foreiirn titles. Quite a large slice of the Fair and Vanderbilt millions will be combined by this marriage. William K. Vanderbilt, Sr., the groom, is the grandson of the founder of the Vanderbilt fortune. Miss Virginia Fair, the bride, is the daughter of James G. Fair, and was born in and bears the name of the city where her father made his fortune. The elder Vanderbilt got his start as a ferryman in New York. Fair struck the trail to fortune at Feather River, California. Transportation was the making of the first; gold and silver mines reared Fair's fortune and linked his name with the greatest and most successful mining venture in the history of the United States. The history of. the Vanderbilt fortune is commonplace compared with that of Fair. The former is a prosaic story; the .latter is n succession of thrilling incidents, of grit, endurance, foresight and the romantic feature inseparable from a gold hunter's career. James G. Fair was one of the big four of California and Nevada. His associates were John W. Mackay, James C. Flood and William S. O'Brien. Fair and Mackay were the miners in Nevada, Flood and O'Brien the speculators in San Francisco. All four were natives of Irelandall but Mackay have passed away. Fair and Mackay were the chief factors in rearing the fortunes of the Bonanza firm. Within less than ten years they were raised from poverty to boundless opulence, and the manner in which the deed was done throws in the shade the Oriental fables detailed in "The Arabian Nights." The discovery and development of the 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 320,000,000 were taken out between 18o0 and 1879, and more than 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 n 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 father's little merchandise store at Douglas Flat. She had promised Jim to marry him when he struck it rich. Now Jim claimed his bride. They were married by Father Casey. A fortnight later the bride and groom started from the Comstock lode at Virginia 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 capital was in Jim's 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 jilain wooden house in little Virginia City. The daughters inherited their father's dark, bright eyes and his pink and white complexion. When little children they were like the other chil dren of poor mining laborers all about them. The elder Fairs were never different 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 Fairgirls received their education in convent schools. Miss Theresa Fair married Herman Oelrichs m 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 d one-thirtwo-story UPTON'S FLAQ.
