CONVENTION Our State and Local Business Interests Wisely Considered The second annual State commercial convention concluded its business for this year Tuesday afternoon followed by a reception at time Galt House at night and was the finish of a meeting that should certainly have its force on the commer cial development of the Commonwealth The resolutions adopted must be re garded with respect and consideration all over the State as they treat on subjects of great importance not only to the mer chant manufacturer farmer and profes sional man but to every citizen of the State as well inasmuch as they relate to the present oppressive system of taxa tion time question of good roads time question of fail play for Kentucky prod ucts in Kentucky and others equally as importantHon J McDermott was one of the speakers and his address was pro nounced one of the finest heard in the convention DISAPPOINTED Are Those Who Predicted Fail ure For the Now County Councils ExnmI IIuvo Distinguished Themselves in America Franco and Austria PROMINENT IN PUBLIC LIFE HERE Irishmen are on their trial This is a phrase which has been constantly on the lips of the English people of late The opinion has been called forth by the inauguration of local government in Ire land and the new system has been de scribed as an experiment a leap in the dark of which none can fortell the consequencesLet a few typical examples of the governing Irishmen Let us glance at the careers of some compatriots who in modern times have proved the con tinuity of the national character the character first exemplified in the ancient Brehon laws one of the wisest justest and most elaborate code of laws drawn up in any age or country time character which again asserted itself in 1782 the era of Irish legislative independence when in the words of Grattnn public prosperity so crowded on the heel of the statute that the powers of nature seemed to stand at the right hand of Parlia ment Spain France and Austria are the three countries in which Irishmen have chiefly attained renown both as soldiers andstatesmen but their footprints may also be traced in the camps and Senates of Russia and Holland Barvaria Portugal and Poland From the flight of the earls down to the present day the names of Irishmen have been entwined with the fortunes of Spain ODonell Dictator of Madrid OReilly Embassador from Spain to the Court of Louis XIV Patrick Lawless Embassador from Portugal to the same court OSullivan Grandee of Spain OReilly Kavanagh and Nugent Aus trian Marshals Lacy and Browne Rus sian Marshals and these are a few of the names which spring to ones mind The ODonells of Spain time Taafes of Austria and the MacMahons of France are perhaps the foremost ODonell Duke of Tetuan is one of time most influential Grandees of Spain a position which he and his ancestors have gained in recognition of valuable services ren dered to time State The career of time IrishAustrian Taafes is no less illustri ous During the seventeenth and eight eenth centuries their names have been blazoned on the roll of Imperial Austria Nicholas Taste Field Marshal who in i 1738 won the famous victory of Belgrade over the Turks and whose son succeeded him in turn to the post of Chamberlain to the Emperor is a picturesque figure but as an example of administrative genius the late Prime Minister Count Francis Taafe is time most notable He is recog nized as one of the ablest of Austrias statesmen and it is a significant fact that his policy always trended in the direction of extending powers of selfgovernment to the various nationalities composing the empire He was a Federalist In 1870 the year in which Isaac Burt started his home rule movement Count Taafe recommended time Austrian Emperor as a member of his ministry to grant auton omy to Bohemia The natural ability of the Irishman for ruling was strikingly recognized at the time the French acted as allies of the new republic The officers of the Irish Brigade under Lafayette whose regiments engaged in time campaign were appointed Governors of the West Indian Islands which they had previously con quered ODunn became Governor of Granada Dillon of St Christopher and Fitzmaurice of St Eustache The ad ministration of these Governors was equally praised by the English French and American Governments- Of all countries the Uhitcd States is that in which the Irish element is the most prominent in public life For the purposes of our argument it perhaps af fords a better illustration than do the countries above referred to for on the continent of Europe the Irishmen who have distinguished themselves belong for the most part to the aristocracy but Jn the republic of the West it is the masses not time classes who administer public affairs and the rank and file have ac quitted themselves of the responsibility as creditably as have time nobility of their country elsewhere From the time when Dillon of the Irish Brigade eagerly demanded leave of Louis XVI to embark his regiment to join the American forces to time present day when President McKinley time grandnephew of the Ulster 98 man sits in the White House Irishmen have been foremost in the civil and military affairs of the great republic The proportion of Irishmen occupying the post of Governor of British colonies and dependencies or engaged in other administrative and legislative

in Ireland so far as concerns the future welfare of the people seems to be appreciated by the thoughtful men of all parties including many who have not heretofore been looked upon as favorable to Irish national ity These latter manifest no disap pointment over their recent defeat by the more advanced nationalele went but seem disposed to accept the change and some of them ven ture suggestions which being de void of all sentimentalism are wise and dispassionate views from tin standpoint of fact admonition against rashness looking to more certain and lasting national unity and progress Among those is Lord Castletown a Unionist He approves of the Councils as he has always held that Ireland was entitled to the same local government as the English and believes that more of home rule will come eventually to the IrishI people if the Councils actl wisely on business lines He says the Councils should con fine themselves principally t0 questions of local administration taxation financiall and business aft fairs of their constituencies am where they find that any unequall burden or injustice is borne by their people under the law or in its en forcement to vigorously seek redress not by meetings and speeches but in a practical way by needed legislation or in the courts Tha- to bring about more uniform local laws the Councils should endeavor to secure for Ireland the approval- of legislative bills for her people But he disapproves of the Councilssi entertaining or adopting resolutions i demanding home rule for Ireland as premature a departure from their real and more pressing duties olf perfecting and carrying on the local l government of their districts in a measure partisan and likely to dis turb the peace and harmony of the people in support of the Councils in the real purposes for which they are establishedthat the success off local home rule will be likely fol lowed by national home rule Lord Castletownssuggestions are wise his advice sound and his warning of danger in the County Councils taking up so soon the ques lion of national home rule is entitled to serious consideration and generally the views of he and others who have opposed nationalism are being so regarded The partisans of course doubt their sincerity pick flaws hint at schemes and covert treachery But if Ireland is to be benefited by the placing of the powers of govern ment in the hands of the people the situation must be accepted in good faith and all the people regardless of past differences of par ties conditions and interests must be trusted and the governing pow er no matter by what party or class controlled must so legislate and exercise authority as to further the welfare and protect the rights of the whole people This of course means a change not desired by some of the politicians whose shibboleth is Ireland and her wrongs but whose real purpose will now soon be made plain The test of sincer r theyrbold patty or pet theories or part isan spite or sectional hate or personal ambition above the real in terest and welfare of their country and 1people they will prove lacking in that one essential of the patriots whichprQmpts him to sacrifice all for country It is no

Irish American FRANKFORT KY JuneoIt is plainly evident from the tone of Shelby villes correspondent in last weeks Kentucky Irish American that the Frankfort letter of two weeks ago aroused the ire of our esteemed friend who prides himself on keeping leis identity a secret I will pass over all but two remarks In the first he states after eulogizing Shelby villes mer its and claims for the capitalI that she Shelbyville would receive the Mossback legislators and having every influence of good send them back to their constituents wiser and soberer men It is said that charity begins at home and why I would respectfully ask should not the invincible Shelby commence this good work at once by practicing upon the late Representative from that county Then Shelbyville may stand some chance of laying claim to the capital of Kentucky and of entertaining the next Governor of this proud old Com monwealth He also says that Frankfort people point out with pride the dilapi dated concern called the Governors Mansion to visitors to the capital city In this we believe our friend errs as there is not a man woman or child in Frankfort that could point out with pride the barn the Governors of Ken tucky have been for years forced to live in We would advise Shan Van Vocht to take a day off some time and run up to Frankfort and view the most beautiful city of Kentucky Frankfort has to be seen to be appreciated and it is plainly evident that Shan Van Vocht has never been outside of the sacred precinct of Shelbyville Father McFarlan of Pewee Valley was in the city last week in the interest of his picnic The Rev J J Pitzgeraldof Shelby ville was in the city this week the guest of Father Majo The excursion ti Cincinnati which was run on Sunday last from this city by the Hibernians proved a grand social as well as financial success It was the first ex cursion ever run from Frankfort on which a disturbance of some kind did not take place Unusually fast time was made both to Cincinnati and on the return trip Jas Fitzgerald the conductor in charge is one of the best men in the employ of the railroad and no disorder of any kind was manifested on the entire trip Messrs OBrien McNamara Lewis and Hogan the committee in charge were ably assisted by every member on the train which contributed a great deal to the success but the man to whom the greater share of the success is due is Col Patrick OBrien who worked early and late and devoted two weeks of his busiest season to advertising the excursion Col OBrien has been a Hibernian everI since Division No1 was organizedand has always been found ready and willing tto devote his time and energies to wok lag everything for the A OH a success The members of Division No1 of Frankfort should bear in mind that tomorrow Sunday June 4 the

CONTINUED PROM FIRST PACK the great justiceworshiping libertylov ing American people by persistent but pernicious activity born of sordid pur I pose and selfish designs has brought the great republic of the West the Govern ment of Washington and Jefferson face to face with the savage doctrine of impe rialism and thereby with the greatest danger that has ever fallen in our coun trys pathway I say savage because im perialism is founded on the doctrine of the savage that brute force alone is to lbe respected that might makes right Imperialists or expansionists as they call themselves tempt our republic as Satan tempted the Savior of men But he who came upon earth to establish a reign of peace and good will among men to teach them that they lire the chil dren of a common father made answer and said Begone Satan the Lord thy God shalt thou adore and only him shalt thou serve and it is written that Satan fled from him and angels came and min- Istered to him So may it be with our republicSorely pressed and tempted as it has been and is to departfrom the teachings of its founders to forsake the paths of peace and security iby which it has attained to the proud place it holds among the nations for the pomp and glitter of imperial sway over conquered provinces in distant lands may it triumph over its tempters and renewing its faith in the great truths which gave it birth and up on whose constant recognition far more tliau upon armies or navies its very ex isteuce depends may it give all mankind a new assurance that virtue has not de parted from the hearts of men and that a government of the people for the peo ple and by the people shall not perish from the earth And the temptations overcome and the tempters relegated to the darkness that must fall upon them instead of the sighs pf the woundedor the the groans of the dying or the plaud its of royal tyrants who would have us follow in their pathway of blood and crime that now offend our cars we shall hear as of old the applause of the noble and the true of the lovers of liberty justice and humanity the worldover One year nay one day of such happi ness blessed by God and approved by the enlightened judgment of the best andnoblest of mankind were worth infi nitely more to our country than all the wealth or plunder a centurys domination over half the world might bring to it Tis yours to judge how wide the limits stand Between a splendid and a happy land But why talk of wealth or plunder or domination say our imperialists we smply desire to accomplish the civ ilizatian of other lands and any war we wouldwage would have no other purpose in view Out upon such hypocrisy It has been found upon the lips of every tyrant and marauder that has decimated and disgraced the human race from Nero to Cecil Rhodes and my Loid Kitchner If there is one lesson which reason teaches and which all history enforces more clearly than any other It is that 1n the great work of civilization brute force has no part or place that evoluftbn in its Christian sense and not revolution is the law of progress Silently calmly and imperceptibly as the dew falls from the heavens above us on the parched earth at our feet the great work of civil- Ization moves forward and sheds its blessings to brighten and cheer mankind Religion and education are its only real factors The Bible and n9t the sword the church and the schoolhouse not the barracks or the camp point the way Civilization is not the work of allay or ofa year like nearly all great and permanent achievements it is of slow and silent growth and admits of no forced process A war of aggression maintained in the interest of civilization is as absurd a proposition as a civilization maintained in the interest of war They are diametri cally opposed to each other War de stroys civilization conserves builds up developsThe of a nation to fight in defense of its right is no more questioned nor questionable Ihan the right of an individ ual to defend himself against an assault made upon him but Its right to become the aggressor or assailant is no greater This is the American doctrine this is the Christian doctrine It is the doctrine I am glad lo know of the great and over whelming majority of bimetallists who upon this as upon other great questions affecting the interest of their country and mankind generally find themselves in happy accord with tine great principles natural justice which bind nations as well as individuals Bimetallists believe that with the advance of civilization wars should cease and with with the best and noblest of the human race who plead for the reign of peace are prepared to sing a requiem to the reign of savagery among I menRing out a slowly dying cause And ancient forms of party strife Ring in the nobler modes of life With sweeter manners purer laws Ring out old shapes of foul disease Ring out the narrowing lust of gold Ring out the thousand wars of old Ring in the thousand years of peace It is but natural we should find that the faction that favors imperialism should also be known as the friends of an en tangling alliance between this country and England This faction comes almost exclusively as we might expect from the ranks of the men who desire to impose upon out country for all time the notori ously dishonest and destructive single gold standard on the ridiculously absurd pretense that we are too weak and too poor ourselves to establish or maintain a more honest standard It is but another development of the same constitutional vice It is but an other solemn declaration on their part of their want of faith in the ability of the American people to regulate their own I affairs and take careof their own in terests without the aid or consent of any other nation 3 Many of them have discarded the proud I name of America and prefer to be known I 0- x L as AngloSaxons while others among them would have us believe that a real American is only a sort of a modified Britisher They draw their entire political faith from England not from the honest and intelligent democracy of the country but front its Tories the narrowest most in tolerent and least progressive in all Europe They view every question affecting the life and prosperity of America through British spectacles and measure it by British standards They are Americans by accident but Britishers by instinct and designTheir ideal of American Independence would be realized by an AngloAmerican alliance They tell us in substance that the American eagle nay no longer fix his gaze upon the sun or sweep upon the storm cloud over mountain or plain that he must abandon his solitary flight and seek shelter and protection between the paws of the British lion What matters the danger or degrada tion all this would entail There is abundant compensation for it all in the fact that we are no longer to be known as plain American citizens like Wash ington Jefferson Jackson or Carroll Lincoln or Logan Grant or Sheridan but that we are to find ourselves all ofa sudden we know now how in the twinkling of an eye as it were and in re sponse to mere sounding brass trans formed into swaggering blathering AngloSaxonsThe of England are in no proper sense AngloSaxons but as ap plied to Americans the term Anglo Saxon becomes grossly absurd andrediculous The ravings of these AngloSaxon An gloAlliance cranks are as unwise us nun patriotic How shall it benefit our coun Iryjwhose citizenship is drawn from every race and every land that race hatreds or animosities shall be engendered here We demand and have a right to demand that those who seek the distinc tion of American citizenship shall become American in the true sense of the word that they shall be loyal to the American flag and to the principles of liberty and progress for which it stands hut we have no right to ask them to become Anglo Saxons or to bow down at the shrine of AngloSaxon idolalry On the contrary rejecting the arrogant claims of Anglo Saxon superiority we should assert and maintain the absolute equality and right of the various races which enter as streams into the magnificent river of American citizenship each preserving for a time its identity while contributing its full share to the swell strength and puri ty of the tide which bears it onward and in which that identity must ultimately be lostIn the meantime however good citizenship the best interest of the repub lic its strength and stability demand that those streams shell be allowed to flow peacefully onward and to silently mingle as they flow undisturbed by the storms of hate passion and prejunice which the fanatical claims and unpatri otic designs of AngloSaxon maniacs would recognized be certain to engen derThere is not the slightest room to doubt that the British Government and its hirelings on both sides of the Atlantic have been diligently plotting for years by a system of fraud and falsehood to create in this country a sentiment favor able to an AngloAmerican alliance hnce the slanders on Germany Austria France and Russia which appeared in the public press during our war with Spain and usually in telegrams coming from English sources We were toM that France our ancient ally and friend was opposed to us that the Germans were ready to assail Dewey at Manila that Russia was ready to sweep down upon us and that England was the only friend we had in the wide wide world They literally bombarded our ears with their lying repqrts and the representa tives of Prance Germany and Russia were kept busy in making public and official repudiation of the falsehoods The trick did not work however and an AngloAmerican alliance or any other alliance thanks to the good horse sense of the masses of our people is as remote and impossible today as it ever was We have no quarrel or cause for quarrel with any of them and we wish to remain so We want to do business with them all to promote friendly relations and com peacefullytohappiness and prosperity as well as our ownThus gentlemen I trust would bi preserveInviolatein the toast to which I have so feebly at tempted to respond Peace and com merce with all nations entangling al liance with none DISAPPOINTED CONTINUED PROM FIRST PAGE throughout the empire is greatly in excess of their numbers aqd influence as citizens of the same empire By sheer force of merit and talert they have forced their way to the front The figures of the colonial Governors and Premiers are perhaps more prosaic than those of the continental statesmen Carving out the careers of new countries in the back woods of Canada or the bush of Australia may not be such dazzling work as presid ing over the destinies of the old world powers but the task may prove a more solid and enduring one when the history of the future comes to be written The governing Irishman is as active in Australia at present as in the early days of the colony Byrnes OLoughlin and OShaughnessy being sonic of the leading namesThis

Holy Father had been requested to appoint a Coadjutor Bisho to assist the venerable Right Reverend Bishop McCloskey created no surprise in the Diocese of Louisville His long term 1in charge of the diocese and advanced age entitle him to an assistant and there is no doubt the request will be granted It will also be remembered that the duties of his office have greatly increased1 during recent years and people of all1 denominations will rejoice to know that the responsibilities and burden now car ried by him will be lightened It is said the priests of the diocese have sent three names to the Pope and the Bishops of the archdiocese a like number and one of these six priests will1 be selected for the post The names off the priests recommended are not made made public and are known only a few tiredvery or may six months but there is no doubt that n coadjutor will be chosen The announce ment of the Holy Fathers selection will1 lie awaited with interest by Catholics of this diocese We publish the above for what it is worth but without being able to verify its accuracy KILLARNEY Something Impossible in the Idea of Its Sale In Building Lots There is something impossible in the idea of selling Killarney in lots to suit purchasers with n charge of five percent per annum on the Tore Mountain and OSullivans Cascade says an Irish writer We will wake up some day or other to find that the Mourne mountains are in the market or that the River thengallon We look upon the Killarney as desecration the average Britisher willI view it from the standpoint of utilityin that spirit which makes him think that Niagara is only a ridiculous waste of water power To some of these concrete trippers everything even in Killarney is how much would it fetch bitrbrightchecked yellowfooted fron

city at large subject to the action of the Dem ocratic party Mr Maddox is a lifelong Democrat aria has spent both time and money in working for the interests of the party He has all the necessary qualifii cations for a firstclass city official He has been in thegrain business of Main street for a number of years Mr Maddox was born at Fainnount on the Bards town pike but went East and became superintendent of the famous Hale Kiln burn Art Designing Works iu Philadel phia He designed and made the chair that Grover Cleveland sat in during his Presidential term did the art work for the Vanderbilt residence in New York and the fine carving etc at tire Louis yule Hotel Mr Maddox was appointedV to a position and did faithful work in the revenue service during the latter part of Mr Clevelands administration He Is I identified with labor interests 0Jr CERTAINLYy How Men Start in the Hunt for Political OfflceJLAre Forced in By the Dear People I i observia great many good peo- pleI are being dragged into politics Please I veryIhim and tell him that he is the only man who is qualified to go in there and repre sent the taxpaying element and it is his duty as a publicspirited citizen to down the corrupt opposition At last he yields to this terrific pressure and puts a card in the paper saying At the earnest solicitation of a large number of my friends I have consented to become candidate for Councilman trout the Third ward I He consents to the use of his saute in the same manner that the man who allpwinter and living off his relatives ac cepts a position You might think that ten or twelve employers had been after slmplbegging acceptediI yet everything considered it is I better to gloss over some of the sordid irealities of life It is much kinder of a newspaper to say that John Whittier has accepted n position nt the hub factory than to say that John Whittler after boarding with his sister all winter has succeeded in getting work at the lib factory It is more flattering to a can didate to say that he has consented to run than to say that he is flying around his ward almost breaking his neck in an ieffort to corral the nomination One peculiar thing about running for office is that the candidate knows that his friends are going to bring him out before they know anything about it them- selvesj The candidate is an astrologer or clairvoyant or something of that kind lie reads the future and sees that he will be the peoples choice at the next elec lion The people dont know it And sometimesi they never do find it out The localelections are held in the fall in most of our incorporated towns and cities but the officerseeker begins to show syrup toms of candidacy early in March or even before that lie is around feeling the public pulse and locating the post holes for his political fences During this pre liminary jperiod of his campaign he does trot want his wife to suspect that he is going to run for office Because why Because woman having a superior intelligence and a more reliable instinct for avoiding trouble would try to save him and prevent him front going into the conventionThe waits until everything is primed and all of his henchmen are at work in the precincts and then when goingIblood in her eye he can say to her My dear I cant back out now because Ive given my promise to the representative business men of this ward They have begged me to accept this nomination and- I have yielded because I felt that it was my duty as a citizen You know very responsibilitiese when every good citizen must sacrifice his private interests for the commonweal That kind of talk may go at a political meeting but it doesnt deceive the wife As he says however it is too late for him to retreat He has gone into the fight and he must stay in until he comes ou spattered with mud but wearing the laurel wreath of victory or else is carried away on a shutter and dumped in with other haibeens of politics You seldom hear of a woman who wants her husband to run for office but if he gets mixed up in politics before sir can head him off and receives a nomina tion then the family pride compels he to do what she can to secure his election When the opposition newspapers begin to say that he is a bigamist and a horse thief and never drew a sober breath or felt the ennobling thrill of an honest impulse she gets her temper up and begins to skirmish for votes She wont invite a woman to tea unless the womans husband has promised to vote all right and it she gets a wavering voter in the house she wins him over by opening her best preserves and filling him full of hickory nut cake such as mother used to make In fact she is her husbands most loyal and devoted supporter even if she does scold him for being a candidate but he doesnt find this out until after election If a woman wants to prevent her hus band from running for office the time to begin on him is when the first symptoms appear Political ambition like a bad cold wants to be checked at the very start AMIABLE KINO LEOPOLD A most amusing anecdote respecting King Leopold has just leaked out and is being told with great pleasure in Belgian court circles The King was walking near the great gates of tine chateau when he was accosted by two American ladies who took him for the head gardener of the beautiful park They asked him if they might visit the park and were an swered in the affirmative the King himself enjoying the joke and acting as their ciceroneAs for his kindness they gave the King a tip of ten francs and asked him if they might visit the chateau AlasI no said the King but there is to be a garden party and iif you will write to his Majesty you will perhaps re ceive an invitation They dill8S suggested and their astonishment can be better imagined than described as they recognized in the King their amiable gardener of a few days before On his chain he wore the ten franc gold piece as a charm Clean your childs first teeth and the second ones wil profit 0 MOONLIGHT EXCURSION TO BE GIVtfN BY TIm IrishAmerican SocietyFri- day Evening June 9 on thc Steamer Columbia HIGH GRADE WHEELSWill be presented to those ladies wino cash in 50
