SHKWVUiK May l12It Was with sincere sorrow that the friends ot the editor of this paper read in the afternoon papers of Tuesday of the death of his oldest son William L Higgins in the faroff Philippine islands We extend to him and his fatuity our sincere sympathy in this sad hour of their sorrow Poor old dead Frankfort We naturally expected that the nndoiitedly able correspondent of that old town would have noticed our last letter to the Ken tucky Irish American but unfortunately there was nothing to say favoring the Franklin county courthouse nor in deed would he venture a wont in praise of the dilapidated affair they terns the State Hoiis There being much talk about its removal it is hoped that good judgment may prevail mid that when a selection is made they may know that Selbyville is in every particular the proper location We have all the advan tages here especially required for the aid and assistance of the lawmakers Shel byvitle with its magnificent public library to which very generously the cit izens have lately donated hundreds of the best looks of reference and ninny vol mimes calculated to while away the weary hours would certainly be the place for our law men to congregate Further more for the young and festive representatives of a proud and haughty people we have a firstclass bowling alley and the best equipped saloons in the Blue grass region Frankfort indeed may boast some establishments of like nature but everybody knows lhat here we have only the lbest that Kentucky offers Bright hopes are in the hearts of our farmers regarding an abundant harvest Everything at this time seems favorable notwithstanding the discouragement ofa few weeks ago Col J M Casey our enterprising busi ness man spent a day in Louisville last week It was said to be a business trip but no doubt a little pleasure was in tended as it happened to be Derby day However the Colonel never 1 goes to the races and so we may be rashly judg ingLast Sunday morning a large number the young ladies and girls of our congre gation received holy communion it being the first Sunday in Marys month The sermon appropriate to the occasion was preached by Rev J J Fitzgerald and was in every respect in keeping with the splendid discourses which we hear not only on special occasions but every Sun day The little children also are all de termined and anxious rain or shine to he present on Saturdays and Sundays to receive his instructions The efficient police force has procured a new uniform of Southern gray for the summer and the proudest man is our City Engineer Dan OLeary In fact wherever there is a crowd Dan is sure to he present Some say it is to have the new suit admired while others unkindly hint that the crowds are there to admire the man Be this as it may we are proud of all who wear the gray During the past week our community was saved from the horrors of a war far surpassing the dreadful scenes of all Uncle Sams foolishness We have two r newspapers published here The News declared editorially that the Sentinel sometimes forgot its duty on watch and was so dazzled by the glare of Goebelism and Goebel and Goebels head and Goe bels tail and Goebels hill and everything else Gobelian as occasionally to tell stories This brought the Sentinel to a full realization of the situation and it was determined to report the night and day watches as all well A beautiful love letter appeared in the editorial col umns of the Sentinel from theNews man declaring tearfully his heartfelt sorrow that the Sentinel should be a moth around Goebels blaze but solemnly pro testing that he meant time Sentinel to be a liar though he sometimes told tales The ungodly and the niggers for a moment forgot themselves and looking up to heaven said bless the Lord while the pious with eyes rolled up declared that it was a beautiful thing to see brothers dwell in unity The Se ttihel is out and out for Goebel and the News does not seem to know where it is at Soended the incident and the war was over When we we saw our last piece in print all the fright vanished and we are here to stay feeling that bur special line is to be a correspondent

for the hydraheaded monster to burst There has been much guessing and sur mise as to who the Shan Van is but so far nil of them have failed to guess the right one Suffice to say that she is only known to the Colonel but she is Irish to the hearts core and like all Shan Vans usually will have her own way of saying and doing things to suit her fancy and she is going to exercise thuds to its fullest

people not only the land and freeholders as heretofore instead of the gran juries composed of or named by the i landlords which formerly governe Ireland locally is now in full force The councils

and towns Women were allowed to vote and many off them were elected to office in the towns They usually voted early and then worked hard for the Na tionalist candidates In Limerick the city government was completely overturned and Nationalists with John Daly a pardoned dynamiter for Mayor were elected to every officeThe Balfour bill swept away the od law regarding the holding of property as a

absence of strife marked the elections There was no attempt except in a few cases to draw sectional lines The elections that have placed the people in command have wrought strange changes in all parts

they also had the privilege of the ballotwhom these titled ones had heretofore ruled with a rod of iron It was humiliating but it was in evitable and there was no help for itTo the onlooker the results of the Irish elections have a humorous look that can not be ignored All classes in Ireland are joking about them The fact that earls and lords have been compelled to acknowledge political

camp He would no doubt unin tentionally prove only a despot His view of the situation in Idaho its cause and his suggestion to prevent its recurrence attest this He rightly condemns those who participate in murder and de struction of property an outlaws and in so far as he places the re sponsibility upon the State of Idaho to suppress lawlessness and protect life and property all willagree with him And even his proclaim ing and enforcing martial law proscribing the miners unions forbidding their meetings or the em ployment of union members in the mines in that district will be approved J as essential1 to the restoring ji of law and order That part of I Idaho Shoshone county has forII years been the scene of lawlessness and outrage and the miners unions have frequently shown by theiri 1 methods that they are at least con y nQ if 1 trolled by outlaws and their present dilemma is only the natural and in evitable fate of all who follow such leaders That these outrages innst be checked and such outlaw stamped out by the whole power of the Government and the most strin gent regulations all lawabiding people agree So far Gen Merriam is doing his duty fully But when he undertakes to give the cause and suggest a defiuit remedy he shows Ills ignorauce of affairs not military and that lack o just discrimination of the soldier iii civil matters which instead of restoring peace and safety to life amij property would because of its injustice in classing and punishiui the innocent with the guilty pro duce anarchy and bloodshed Hte says Since the trouble largely originated in hostile organization of men known as labor unions I suggest a law making the formation of such unions or kindred a crime The General should have been more definite and said Sine antd was confined to miners I suggest a law making operating a mine n working in a mine a crime OIKe 1is about as logical and just as the otherBut seriously the absurdity off Gen Merriams classing labor unions per se as criminal1 and 1hi S suggesting vigorous laws proscrib ing them as such only shows hi characterdpurpose and beneficial results off labor unions to the community For while labor unions may at times as in Idaho be controlled by the vicious and led to violate tit law no other influence has done sc much to teach tie workman iii duty to himself his employer andc the law to understand and demand1 his rights and respect and protect the rights of others to elevate him morally and mentally to appeal this reason and justice and restrain him from such violence as that in Idaho to make him a good citizen learn him business methods to be honesd ty skill and obedience to law mustt he rely for his betterment an I finally that his greatest injury comes from acts of violence and re sistance to law Gen Merriam does not know this He only sees labor unions asi they appear to him in Idaho lillitt people burning property and defy ing the law and with the narrow vision strict discipline and hasty decision of the sojdier he wouldl act He does not stop to reflect and investigate that though there are members of labor unions who are outlaws and deserve summary punishment the vast majority ar among the most orderly and law abiding citizens who earnestly disapprove such criminality and de plore it because of the reproach iit puts upon them and their unions and finally that labor unions en deavor in every possible way to restrain and prevent such conduct I on the part of the thoughtless ignorant and evil disposed work menGeu Merriam should confine himself to the army and military affairs and leave the regulating of civil and moral questions to those who know more about such things like the Western miner who agreed that the parson knew more than he about running a gospel millSSome of our papers give great prominence to the incendiary pro test and denunciation of LClaire against Archbishop Ireland diliver ing the oration at the centenary of Jean DArc The LClaire is the

criminals serving sentences in prisons aril penitentiaries have for books of adventure mystery and crime serves to show parents the immense necessity they are under of watching after the hooks within

by Alcxan der Sutherland to the Nineteeiith Century in which he appeals to history to show the natural decline of warfare lIe argues that the development of human sympathy has been steadily sapping the military spirit After taking intervals of four centuries Sutherland says If we who are accustomed to the peaceful ways of a modern city could be dropped back into one of our ancestral tribes of forty generations ago our lives would be one long ferocious nightmare wherein no occupation was of any repute save that of- the warrior nor any pursuit capable of kindling ardor except that of slaughter Peaceful industry was degrading and fit i only for slaves and a mans surest pass port to the heaven of wassail was to die amid the frenzied slaughter of battle I lithe Eleventh century the

until he draws the conclusion that the current of historic tendency is in favor o the dream that a reign of peace may not tt after all be so very far away The giant force of human sympathy moves onward from century to century It is a natural process through which brutal and unsym strains by slow degrees are pasesessed by the sympathetic If fellow finds it hard to mate and finds iitr hard to make his union permanent when mated it is plain that his particular type will have less than the average of offspring If the unkind and unsympathetic parent loses more of his children than the average parent then here again we newtgeneration the sympathetic generation will be better represented than the unsympathetic And as with individuals so with races kindness and honesty make the best policy iu the end While we amuse ourselves and argue and quarrel and threaten this great but unobtrusive change is going forward Marriages are made or fail to be made children are reared or die out citizens succeed or fail nations expand or decay in such a fashion that on the whole the kindly disposi tions tend ever more and more to prevail over the cruel And therefore Czar or no Czar wars are eventually doomed and the fate of war will be the same as that of cannibalism and human sacrifices and baronial wars and duels It is only a question of patient hopefulness with as much helpfulness as we can devise when the IPrince of Peace will reign and time meek shall inherit the earth A NHVIN CUNNINGHAM RECENT DEATHS Andrew Brenner aged thirtytwo years died night at his home 042 Twentyfourth street

The question like the spring poem is very pertinent In the first place spring fever is not a fever at all just as catching a cold Is not catching a cold but getting n fever in a part of the system The condition called spring fever is produced by the withdrawal of the stimulating atmosphere of winter and the oncoming of a higher atmospheric temperature before we have adapted our clothing to the season and before the skin and the individual become accli mated There is n maladjustment of the entire individualhis skin organs and clothing to his changed environment He is made uncomfortable by the sudden change in climate In the spring more or less malaria gets into the human system It comes from the interstices of the groundwhich having been closed by frost are again re opened This impairs the blood to some extent and affects the nervous system producing aches pains and debility Persons experiencing these discomforts in spring should have a care for their health for spring fever in its extreme stage often develops rheumatism awl md lariaIt used to IKS the custom for people to take a spring medicine usually a physic and sassafras tea has not yet gone out of fashion It has tong been a common idea springtlmewere the proper things to use There is no particular harm in sassafras cream of tartar and sulphur in moderation they really do some good but the wiser course is to consult a physician and give him a chance to cure a mere ailment before it becomes a steady illness The clanging of the seasons is a time of trial to delicate constitutionsThere very little sentiment in an attack of spring fever The truth of it is that people whq have it are not quite well Several of the young ladies who are selling tickets for the moonlight excur sion given by the Irish American Society are running lleksncneck foe the prizes Y rv i I i IRELAND Record of the Most Important of I the Recent Events Culled From Exchanges Some important Irish news omitted will appear next week The Dublin Celtic Literary Society will hold no more sessions until October At its last meeting April 28 Fred Ryan read a very instructive paperdcaling with the subject of the Elements of the National Demand On Wednesday April 20 the Irish His torical Society held its first meeting for the present term in Dublin The sub ject debated was an interesting and important one being That instruction in the Irish language should be given in all elementary schools A large number of the inhabitants of Dalkey who feel keenly the grave incon venience and loss occasioned by the pres ent defective postal arrangements have forwarded to the Urban District Council suggestions for their consideration with the request that they would be embodied in a memorial for presentation to the Postmaster General In the course of a quarrel which took place in the town of Wicklow on Satur day night a man named Patrick Cullen was beaten and kicked in such a manner that lie now lies in a very precarious con dition in the County Infirmary A man named John Connor a quay laborer has been arrested on a charge ot having in flicted the injuries In the recent examination held by the Irish branch of the Surveyors

from injuries received on the 17th inst Deceased was a butcher and fell from a ladder on the day mentioned In the fall his arm caught in the hook and was frightfully lacerated He was re moved to the hospital where he died on Sunday from blood poisoning The jury returned verdict from accidental deaths If Mr Dillon lead really wished for reunion he would have lost no time in closing with Mr Redmonds proposals This is the conclusion at which ati English journal like the Spectator which is opposed equally to both Parnellites and antiParnellites arrives in an elaborate review of the contents of the recent letter of Sir Thomas Esmonde It is fast becoming the view of every one anti Parnellites included especially as Mr Dillon to this hour has never given a single intelligible reason for his rejection of the Independent patty The Independent says its readers learned withpeculiar Satisfaction that Col Nolan has been elected Chairman of the County Council of the county of which he was so long the able and faithfulrep resentative in Parliament Isis elec tion is a recognition of his ability and his past services upon which his col leagues may be congratulated It is need less to say that he is time right man in the right place Galway is one of those counties which is in peculiar need of a chairman who will have a keen eye out for the development of its material te sources and is capable of devising means to that end and Col Nolan fulfills that character to perfection The Royal Irish Constabulary are getting something to play with some thing they hadnt before In fact they are going to get new rifles What in the worldare they going to do with them asked an Irish writer Do they want them to shoot down County Councillors District Councillors or National Teach ers in Ulster As the muzzling orders are in force there is not much demand on them in the maddog line One could understand a supply of new blackthorns with an occasional revolver for orna mental purposes But what the new ri fles are for is a question which would puzzle the Qilnker himself Their royal highnesses the Duke and Duchess of York after a stay of precisely a fortnight in Ireland took their depart ure from Kingstown pier by the mail steamer Ulster for Wales Their royal highnesses were accompanied by Sir Charles Cust and Lady Eva Dugdale The Royal party left Kilkenny by special train This train ran through to Kings town pier The departure was purely a private function Precautions were taken to prevent anything in the nature of a public display Entrance to the pier by the ordinary passage was prohibited Their royal highnesses before departing expressed themselves highly delighted with their trip to Ireland The late James OMara whose death at his residence Thomas street

rtnmr rmrdonoo + er tr r onrIrmaoadaaatR sdt iadr The next morning John left for Florida after a tender parting from Flora some what tearful on her part it must be con fessedJohn being absent it was necessary for Justin to hire an extra man to assist him and through Floras aid he secured the services of a young goodlooking German The new hands name curious to relate was John Smith a fact which seemed strange to Justin and was unwel come to him How is it that you who are a German should be named John Smith inquired the old farmer You ought to call yourself Johann Schmidt or some such name I It it easily explained replied John I leftIthe American farmer that brought me up could not find out my real name and so he named me after himself John Smith I IWel1 I suppose Its all right But I dont exactly like it that my hired man has the same name as that of my son Youll remind me of him too much Im afraid Dot I dont look like your son nor act like him do J If only youll show yourself to be a smart fellow Ill f6rgive you for having nn undesirable name It was not long before Justin Smith ob Floeseemed to be more friendly than is usual between the mistress of a house and an feltda little uneasy but he did not consider iit worth his while to warn Flora or remon strate with her She would not give up such a flue respectable young man as John lint Flora strange to say soon seemed to forget the claims of her first lover and to be infatuated with the goodlooking German who in his rude way could make himself quite agreeable The suspicions of Justin had finally become well arousall and Flora noticed that he was keeping a close watch over her But as luck would have it thieves had of late twice visited Justins garden at the rear of his house and succeeded iin securing a number of his best water melons and the farmer had formed the habit of hiding for a time each evening in such places as would enable him to see a thief if should enter the garden or were already in it One evening Justin sought the garden as usual and to his delight saw a man standing near the middle of it Justin had a stout club in his hand and with the stealth of a cat he advanced When he was within two feet of the back of his victim he raised his club and criedII Ah you rascal Ive got you now If you try to run Ill brain you But the figure did not move Justin grasped the left arm of the matt and as he pinched the loose coat sleeve he could hear the crackling of straw within it The seemihg man was a scarecrow which John Smith had placed in the garden just after supper that day for the purpose o diverting the attention of Justin while the young man and Flora drove away from time house Mortified and disgusted Justin return ed to his abode only to search for Flora in vain He next walked toward the barn and shouted for John but the hired man did not appear Entering the stables Justin discovered that the swift mare that Flora was accustomed to drive was gore With1 an agility surprising in one of his years he harnessed his carriage horses and drove to the nearest village at a furious rate But when he reached the haddleft the horse ata livery stable and had departed on a train for Albany fifteen minutes before his arrival For the first time in his life he ques tioned whether he was a wise man In spite of all his precautions the girl would be married before she was twentyone possessioniof the Edwin Smith farm which he hoped to control as long as he might live She Had disgraced herself andI had also deprived him of the farm whereas if he had only consented to he marriage to his son the property would at least have been kept in his own tarn ily Justin was forced to acknowledg- that he had made a botch of businesfHe an Albany pope- that r time tnarriag + had taken place o time day time couple had fled and three days later the liappy pair returned homeJustin received them with distant po liteness refraining from all scolding He himself had acted so unwisely tha he felt too much disconcerted to find fault with others Of course nowttiiat Flora was legally married it was useless for Justin to op pose the stipulations in the Edwin Smith will and vdeed of the farms wasI immediately given to Mrs John Smith Her husband at Duce took charge of the farm but his wife started on a jjourney the destination ana object of which were unknown to Justin Smith Three weeks later Flora returned and with her was John Smith the son of Justin The two accompanied by a young German woman named Anna Schwarz whom Flora hart hired to b her house servant entered the home of the old farmer The sight almost porn lyzed Justin with astonishment What does this mean he gasped as he looked at his son It means that Flora is my wife and that I have coons home to take charge of the Edwin Smith farm IIDut the girl is already married to another John Smith You are wrong Miss Anna Schwarz here I acknowledge successfully acted the part of a mythical John Smith in- mansclothCs butt it is no longer neces sary for her to practice laudible ices p tion for aliving lint the cereauMiy was fraudulent is h J then and the farm belongs to me still It does not belong to you for Flora Floringer has been twice married to a John Smith the second time in a legal way to myself The ceremony took place in Florida too so you can not dis inherit me II Well this beats all I ever heard of cried the old farmer but Im so glad to have it turn out better than I could have hoped for that I forgive you One farm belongs to her now and both farms after my death will belong to you and your wife
