SATURDAY JUNE 17 1899 PRICE FIVE CENTS OVERTAXATION Discussed nt tho Irish Trades Union Congress at Lou donderry Wits the Most Important Matter Brought Before the Body Letter Front William Field on International Monomet allic System PENSIONS ASKED FOR THE AGED POOR The most important meeting yet held by the Irish Trades Union Congress was brought to a close May 24 after a session that may result in much good to the workers of Ireland President James McCarron of London derry was in the chair and the most important business brought before the con gress was disposed of Councillor Taylor of Belfast moved that the con gress instruct the Parliamentary commit tee to bring under the notice of her Maj estys Government the necessity for the reform of the registration laws so that mistakes similar to that which disfran chised Councillor Gageby Belfast might be rectified and that the period of qualification might be reduced lie said by what was explained as a mistake Coun cillor Gageby was deprived not only as a citizen of Belfast but his constituency had lost the benefit of his representation He thought when a mistake was made the law should provide some means of rectifyingi it Mr Munro seconded the motion and said a blunder had been made and if the congress could send forth to the registra tion authorities their voice on this matter and if in the future these blunders could be avoided they would not have made it in vain The motion was carried Mr J Chambers of Dublin moved That this congress of Irish workers join the protest made by every party in reland regardless of creed or politics against the continued and monstrous overtaxation of this country as compared t with England and to express the hope tbaLiheJuidings pftbeFinancialItelat- ions Commission will be carried into practical effect and we call on the Irish members of Parliament to resist every at tempt to shelve the question In mov ing the resolution Mr Chambers said this was the most important matter which had come before the congress since it had assembled lie thought there should be no two opinions on this question among the people of the country and the ap peal of the congress was that justice should be done to Ireland Mr Walker of Belfast seconded the motion and said the question particularly affected Belfast owing to the great in justice done to that city The Govern ment had been year by year spending large sums of money in building up the navy but not one penny of that money had found its way into one Irish center except the small dockyards at Cork ime after time the Belfast Harbor Commissioners had appealed to the British Government through the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the First Lord of the Admiralty to subsidie Belfast so as to enable Belfast to build a large dock there in order that large menofwar vessels could be built there and time after time the representatives of the Irish nation had been refused this small boon which every center in England and Scotland could get for the asking On this ques tion he considered there should be such an unanimity of opinion from the South to the North as would compel the Gov ernment whether Liberal or Conserva tive to treat the people of Ireland fairly and that no longer there would be any injustice done to the Irish people Un fortunately in Ireland the people had been so long divided on many questions that the Government thought they were so on all questions and could therefore flout theni He knew the Irish people would show the Government that from Jorth to South they were united on this question and the moment the Govern ment recognized that they would concede fair financial relations between Great Britain and Ireland Mr Darcus of Belfast thought the congress was not competent to discuss this question because in doing so they were going out of their depth He did not think that the congress had suffi ciently weighed the subject so as to give an opinion that would carry any weight whateverMr climes of Belfast said this question was a very important one for Unionistsand he was a Unionistbe cause a bargain was made with Ireland by England at the time of the act of union and that bargain had been broken That was the ground upon which he stood A treaty was made on fair and honorable terms with Ireland and that for all time she should contribute a fair pro portion to the revenue of the country That treaty had been broken time after time by the predominant partner No one should fight this question harder iii Ireland than those who were Unionists and considered unionism beat for thetwo countries be cause it was a condition of inlands t union with England that she should con tribute herJbrfanl1 no more It was un mary i t 7w KENTUCKY IRISH AMERIcA fair and unjust to ask Ireland to contrib ate unjustly or unfairly The motion was opposed by Messrs Munro and Davies Mr Leahy of Dublin said Ireland would never be fairly treated by England and would never have justice done her untilshe had the right to manage her own affairs The motion was carried with only three dissenting votes A resolution was also passed calling for I the appointment of additional factory in ij spectors the present number being totally inadequateAnother resolution adopted was that the high rates charged by Irish railway companies on all goods in transit is in a large measure helping to cripple the commercial industry of the country and that the Parliamentary committee should use their best endeavors to assist the Railway Reform Association in their ef forts to bring about a reduction in rail way charges which are necessay for the welfare of the country and that the time has arrived when the attention of Parliament should be drawn to the mismanage ment of Irish railways with one excep tion and that the Parliamentary commit rtee take steps to assist in the bringing of our countrys railways under Government control the State to be absolute owners of same in conjunction with the tele graph system and that all profits obtain able from such transfer should be ad ministered to the national advantage of the whole of the Irish people The election of the Parliamentary com mittee resulted as follows MessrsJames McCarron Londonderry Alexander Bow man Belfast W J Leahy Dublin Alex Taylor Belfast Patrick Cassidy Dublin J Chambers Dublin John Simmons Dublin and P OConnor Limerick On the motion of Mr Taylor seconded by Mr McDevitt Belfast resolutions were passed calling upon the Government to redeem their pledges concerning the aged poor by providing pensions for all workers who have attained the age of sixtyfrveadwhohave an income of less than ten shillings per week and also re questing Secretaries of trades councils and trade societies to ascertain the opinion of the members of Parliament of their district on all bills and resolutions coming before Parliament affecting the interests of the workers The delegates were entertained at luncheon by the Mayor after which the subject of international monometallic system was discussed resulting in the adoption of a resolution against mono metallism During the consideration of the question the following letter from William Field member of Parliament wasreadSome workingmen who do not ex= amine the subject sayin a careless way that either gold or silver is goodenough for them and others believe that if the purchasing power of gold decreased they would not be able to obtain the same amount of goods for the money they are now able to earn Probably there is no country in the world that has suffered more from the evil effects of monometal lism than Ireland because the price of agricultural produce has decreased so enormously that the demand for labor has slackened in the country parts and many of the idlers crowd into the cities and villages where there is no work for them Besides it is evident that under those conditions the labor market in cities and towns is overstocked with those who can find flo work on the farms Agri culture hardly pays and consequently employment ceases and there can be no doubt whatever that since the introduc tion of monometallism about a quarter of a century ago the prices have steadily fallen A corner in gold has been created that is to say the governments of the world have nearly all combined in a trust to monopolize the money of the world in the shape of gold This monopoly is dangerous to humanity and sustains commercial inequality between the gold and silver using country The working men of trades unions who have studied this question have almost invariably come to the conclusion that the oldsys tem of bimetallism is vastly superior to the new monometallism which has been introduced to sustain the money lenders holders and creditors The congress decided to meet in Dub lin next year It was also resolved that the Parliamentary committee should con sist of eight as at present In the even giveninST CECILIAS Despite the heavy rain St Cecilias church was

Present Miserable Personal Rivalries Must Not Block time Peo ples Cause ORGANIZATION THE PEOPLES WEAPON The great Unity demonstration in Limerick on Sunday May 13 says the Cork Examiner was an unmistakable expres sion of opinion from the people on a mat ter of vital interest to the future of Ire land The cause if ever it existed for dissension has now happily passedaway and as the speakers remarked at the great demonstration it is for the people by their action to bring back that unity in the Irish ranks which time country desires And right loyally did the people show what is to be expected from them If a few members of Parliament held back from the Munster Unity Committee representative men clergymen and laymen from every center in the Province the people came in thousands young and old and of every class that Ireland has to depend on for her prosperity The merchant and the peasant and even the nobleman in the person of Lord Emly were present not alone from Munster but distant Connacht and not a few cen ters from Lcinster They came by road by steamer or by one or other of the numerous special trains run for the occa sionJohn Mclnerney Chairman of the Unity Committee presided in an able manner and made a very patriotic ad dress The principal orator was William OBrien but brief and stirring speeches were also made by Hairland Burke M A Scanlan Rev Father Casey and Jeremiah Howard Chairman of the Cork County Council who introduced resolu tions calling for unity of action upon the part of the men of Ireland When Mr WilHatniOBrienaroseto speak he received an ovation He said Men of Limerick of Cork of Clare of Tipperary and Kerry and I believe I think I may include even Waterford far away as it is you are all represented here todayTo me in spite of this shower it is a escapeintolongdaysuphillfightservice fnndsof Dublin Castle In justice poorMayoDublin special jury or at least ten out of twelvefounda measure of fearless justice and absence of all prefudice or bitterness that has a bearing and I believe a most hopeful bearing upon this question of national unity that brings us here today Now there is one significant fact about this enormous gathering and it is this that you have not invited a single mem ber of Parliament of any shade or section That perhaps is rather an eX- treme step It is the first time it ever happenedwithin my recollection but the circumstances are extreme and I have no doubt upon my mind that you have done the wise and the right thing The Unity Committee did all that men could do to conciliate these gentlemento bring them together to beg and to en treat them to listen to the voice of the country and to remember that they were not sert into Parliament to disgrace themselves and disgrace the countrywith their petty quarrels Now I dont care who was right or who was wrong about the breakdown of that ferenceit would be the merest waste of time to be discussing itbut the point for the country is as your chairman has just told you that the members of Parliament themselves either can not or will not unite without the in tervention of the people That is the point and there is no use in our shutting- our eyes to it If the very numerous Claremen who are listening to me wanted to get home to County Clare tonight they might as well lie down on the banks of the Shannon until the river ran dry in order to cross over as to expect that this stream of controversy between members of Parliament and their newspapers will run dry as long as the Irish people are simplycontent to lie down and wait What the people have got to dels to throw a bridge across time river of dissen sion themselves and to prove that the nation is not going to wait on its road to freedobi until a handful of gentlemen and their newspapers are pleased to move out of the way Now of course I take it for grantee that in declining to invite any member of Parliament you did not intend to pass a vote of censure on then all No it ungrateful splendid material in the Irish representa tion and not in one section or in two sections alone but the situation is just this that ninetynine out of every hun unityTheyL y it t t1 f i able questions of personal rivalry that are keeping the sections asunder The people dont understand those timings they dont believe there is anything iin them I There is nothing I venture to say that all you thousands of people would wish more than that all tlioecontroversie were buried at the bottom of the Reel Seaif not the controversialists them selvesand that the country should once more have an Irish pajty that would spend its time fighting the common enemy rather than bullyragging and abusing each other I That no one I think will deny is the opinion of practically every man you I meet it is not a questio of ten to two or a hundred to two but I might say of a thousand to two of the whole Irish race That is on the on side On the other side you have a handful of gentle tne11I will say nothing iu abuse of them or of their newspapers ijbo for reasons I wont discusseverybodsees throughI them are determined to have I are determined to reject every proposal for conciliation upon one petty pretense or another to keep the Ir5ah members in a state of perpetual fever and unrest and to keep the people fof the country looking on in a state of helplessness and disorganization until the general election of next year surprises you and makes confusion worse confounded Now that being so then conies the question whether those few gentlemen or the country are the stronger Are those men going to be allowed to crush the cause of the whole country or is the country to rise up as youlare doing here today and teach those gentlemen how easily they can be done without andI how easily they can be snuffed out if they persist in setting up their whims and temperaments against the interests of the countryitWe are here today ttake the first steps to bring the stength of the people into play and the moment you have the strengthand power of time people embodied in an organization trained to act together you can sweep tiside any fool ish animal it would be uncivil to say donkey that crosses its path But it must have rails to travel upon and the rails of the national movehient are organ ization and that organization will enable you to smash every obstruction that comes in your way like so much match wood Now my friendsAj think with out one single exception every repre sentative body of Nationalists in Ireland passed a resolution indorsing the action of the Limerick Unity Committee and I ask you were there ever4body 6f men better entitled to speak wulyiuthprityI for tile country than thcy ereAahdt6 stand no further nonsense from the handful of men that blocked the way But you may be passing unity resolutions until your hair grows gray unless you have at your back an organization that will compel those men to unite And once you have an active and united organization your troubles will be over and all those little newspaper wars will give you no more trouble than the chirp ing of a grasshopper in the field would give to the great ox browsing peacefully in one of your magnificent Limerick pas tures Your only wonder will be that you ever attached so much importance to those little cliques and scribblers who have been buzzing in the ears of the country for the last few years as if they were the only people in it Now remember this the first thing that is essential In such an organization as I have mentioned is and its first and last thought ought to be the independence of Ireland the establishment of nationality in this old land in the fullest measure that circumstances can place it in the power of our people That must be time beall and the endall of every Irish movement The next organizationi a sectional or partisan organization Let there be no mistake about that We must have no question of the leadership of this man or that man At the present leadingbutWe must have no triumphing by one section over another Time doors of this must be kept wide open to admit every Irish nationalist who nationalityinlike my friend Henry OShea like my yfriendwho does not see his way to be with us hislifelet us have the veterans and I say it is a pleasant thing for those old comrades to- be on our side but above all us have a welcome for the youngmen who are springing up into manhood and who happily for themselves know noth keptIrishmengrinning and clapping their hands What we want is to cast all those differences into the melting pot Let us have a new departure let us bring in as many new men and young men as possible and dont you think that the County Councils and the District Councils will give us plenty of new men We need not look far bevond this platform for some of them So far from there being any jeal ousy of new men or any desire to bar them out I for one am convinced that it is such men that will ultimately save the countryLet have an organization as broad and as generous as the Irish race let us exclude nobody let us turn the eyes of uponthebefore us let us win back possession of this old land of ours from the foreign garrison for the old sons or time soil let us organize every man iti Limerick and Munster into a regular entrenched camp where the regnlar election of next year will find

Fashions Social Features and En tertainments THE LIFE OF IRELANDS CAPITAL Sweet Dolly Monroe Winsome Betty Gunning Could you but step out of your frame at the National Gallery in Leinster Lawn and revisit the scenes you once brightened by your beauty how changed you would find thornI One can fancy you tripping forth arch ing your insteps and pointing your toes till pausing at the gallery door you look round inquiringly for a sedan chair No fair ladies that is not to be had but there is an electric tram at the cor neroYou shake your curls doubtfully Then what do you say to n bicycle Here comes one wining along ridden by a somewhat weatherbeaten lady dressed in the severest tailormade gowns Oh how your pretty brows arch and your eyes open in surprise I What a strange ugly bustling world it is into which you have stepped Your little heads are in a whirl You beg to be allowed to return to your niches in the portrait gallery and your dreams of the olden days when stately cavaliers made fine speeches to fine ladies as they promenaded together instead of as now ringing bells as signals to each other to get out of the way as they dash along on pneumatic machines The Dublin of today is indeed a changed place to the Dublin of a century agoNow that the old historic city is about to undergo another change in the ex tension of its boundaries it is interesting to recall a few glimpses of the spectacle presented by the metropolis and the so ciety which flourished in it a century ago ii v What a brilliant society it was What ever other disadvantages and difficulties the country had to contend with at that period society circles in the capital were gay and gorgeous The hundred and twenty resident peers of which Dublin then boasted the elo quent Parliamentarians the wits and worthies the beauties what a galaxy of talent and fashion they made Let us imagine that it is a promenade night at the Rotunda Gardens and fol low the stream of sedan chairs which are being borne thither If it Is at the beginning of the century you have no difficulty in securing one There are about 2GO to be had for hire in time city but in 1821 not more than half a dozen are in evidence liThe quality conveyanreThe nade in those days than the middle classes do for their bazars and other fetes today Entering quite a dazzling scene meets brilliantlyilluminated lamps a band is performing andperhaps some local musicians while on the ter race promenades a monstrous fine company Beautiful ladles in powder and patches sweep along in their brocaded gowns attended by gallant cavaliers with sword and cocked hat and gold braided suits Mingling with the crowd you pace backward and forward It is not an extensive promenadeonly eighteen perches in length for those are not the days of record distance feats and you hear many pretty speeches Conversation is a fine art with these fine folk They are not in too great a hurry to choose their phrases Nothing is clipt and curt They are somewhat stilt ed perhaps but as graceful and polished a company as any capital produced The lights begin to flicker low the company disperses with many a low bow from the cavaliers many a sweeping courtesy fronl the ladies To their resi dences in R landsquare return such noblemen as Lord Charlemont Lord Wicklow Lorn Ormond Lord Langford Lord Bective Lord Farnhaui and others while the coaches and sedan chairs wend their way to many another stately man sion in the city now dismantled and de sertedThe exodus of the aristocracy from the capital began immediately after the fatal act of union The chroniclers of the period lament over lithe almost total de sertion of the metropolis by the nobility and gentry in consequence of the union and go on to describe how art letters trade and commerce declined proportion ately with the withdrawal of the classes who had supported them romptheat the time of which we write the most fashionable It is curious now to read of the Beaux Walk at St Jamess Gate where the rank and fashion of the Liber ties promenaded at the end of the last I centuryThe I piornenade was one of the chief prartniondays V O Ii j r ftI J ttr hospitalbying one but there were others notably those at St James Gate and at Bachelors Walk on the quays and later on one in Stephens Green and another at Portobello Rathmincs Stephens Green seemed to succeed the Rotunda in popularity Quaint old prints show us the promenade in the former place It was round the square that Dolly Monroe the famous beauty used to take an airing at 5 oclock iu the morning choosing that early hour in order to es cape from the too persistent attentions of her many ftdmirers For nothing has Dublin been more celebrated than for its beauties Of its bevy of fair women the Gunning sisters are the acknowledged queens Accord ing to Horace Walpole they were lithe most beautiful women in the world and they took both Dublin and London by storm In the latter city they had to be provided with a guard to protect them I from the intrusive admiration of the csowds which surrounded them whenever they appeared out of doors Their whole history reads like a fairy tale from the time when they emerged from their remote home in the West of Ireland to the days on which they married respectively the Earl of Coventry and the Duke of HamiltonThe was the chief rendezvous of the beaux and belles during the day time but as well as the numerous routs and parties held at night there was another great meeting place the most brilliant of all the assemblies viz the Parliament House In the social life of the period time Houses of Lords and Commons played a prominent part One of the delights of the cultured and fashionable world in Dublin was to go down to the House in the evening when a good debate was ex pected The famous picture of Barrett gives a good idea of the appearance which the House presented on the occasion of a full dress debate It is certain ly a more picturesque assembly than the present British House of Parliament Be it noted that the ladies looking down from the gallery in all the glory of their evening toilets and sparkling jewels have no grill interposed between them and the view of the legislators below Irishmen did not see the force of the grill arrange ment and that their eyes sometimes wandered for refreshment to the gallery may be gathered from the statement of a contemporary chronicler who informs us Lord Charlemont firstsaw and fell in love with his wife then the lovely Anne Berminghain in the gallery of the House of Parliament Princess Jjallikoft Catherine ofRugo sias maid of honor speaks in her me moirs of her frequent visits to the House during her stay in Dublin which she seems to have enjoyed mightily Dalys Club adjoining the House was much frequented by the M Ps It was a fast enough resort where gambling for high stakes and other reckless amuse ments were carried on But of all the clubs none have such a reputation for reckless dissipation as had the Hell Fire Club It fully justified its name and the members vied with each other in desperate courses The club had several meeting places in County Dublin as well as in the city One was situated on the slopes of Mont Pelier one of the Dublin mountains another in the grounds now inclosed by Rathfarnham Abbey one in Dame street and another in Daw son street A portrait group of some of the leading spirits of the club is to be seen in the national gallery The Dublin people were always fond of going to the play The theaters open at that time were the Stnockalley Theater in Aungier street the Rainsfordstreet Georgeslane and Crowestreet Theaters Here many famous actors trod the boards and in the Smockalley Theater Sheri dans plays were performed to enthusias tic audiences Fair Dublin City was indeed an ani mated place in these days The aristoc racy had so many amusements that one is not surprised to hear that they occa sionally escaped to the country to rest awhile trom the excitements of city life As well as going to stay at their country seats they sometimes went to health resorts in the metropolitan county But the resorts to which they betook them selves were not those which are fashion able nowadays Thus one reads in the diaries of fash ionable ladies of the period We are thinking of going for sea bathing to Ringsend and again I am taking the girls for an agreeable change to Harolds I CrossHow funny it sounds When long journeys were undertaken to the country the family coach was the means of conveyance and the canal boats were also sometimes used but were re garded as a less stylish mode of progres sion The hotel at Portobello was much frequented by travelers on the canal who by the way invariably made their wills before starting on their journey In this globetrotting age it is hard to under stand what an event a journey was in these days- Having rambled so longjn old Dublin it is hard to return to the prosaic present Perhaps on another occasion we may revert to the old days and revisit the old scenes ifwe can induce some of the dainty ladies and courtly cavaliers to step out of their frames In the portrait gallery

a tour of sightseeing in Ireland They have heretofore spent their time and money doing the con tinent every summer A movementt was started some time ago by Mr F C Crossley of Dublin to tur I the tide of tourists to Ireland i I btinInY prominent Irishmen Strange a- I it may seem they encounteredl great difficulty owing to the false notions and prejudices Ireland and the Irish people The beauties of Ireland all had heard off r and longed to see but they regard ed the country as lacking facilities for travel and accommodations for travelers that the roads railways bridges water craft hotels sta tions etc were primitive and crude that the people were ignorant rude uncouth and unfriendly if not really antagonistic to strangers es pecially from England This diffi culty only made the promoters the more determined to disprove thes allegations by actual observation by an exclusively English party o tourists and after months of urgent solicitation they succeeded in organ izing such a party in London and on May 20 they landed in Dublin where they were graciously re ceived and most hospitably entertained I There the party divided one taking the Southern route the other the West The members of the Western sec tion were Lord Coleridge Mr Bram Hillyard Westminster Gazette Mr and Mrs R Manders Mr an Mrs Charles McArthur Mr D V Pirie and Hon Miss Forbes Sem RosPmead Mr James Round and Miss

disposal The Direct ors also entertained the party a dinner on the 23rd ult The tour embraced visits to Galway Cashel Ballynahinch Falls of Loughna fooey Westport Mallaranny and Achill Long cars were especially provided for drives which proved interesting The party returned I to Dublin on the 29th ult refreshed and invigorated doubtless by the ozoneladen breezes of the Vest c The Southern section

find ample proof of this every where The railway accommoda anddcheapness can compare favorably with that obtainable across the channel During the past decade great improvements have taken place These improvements are made all the more complete through the opening up of steamship and car routes through some of the most Whatsis true of the railways is also true of the hotels On all the estab quitetuptodate and for the accommo dation given the charge can not be regarded as anything else than rea sonable and moderate When these facts respecting the traveling facili ties and the hotel accommodations are better known abroad a very important development of the tourist traffic will result The present visit from England will help materi ally to dispel the false notions which still exist among strangers Another effect it will have is that the cross channel trip in one of the splendid new boats of the Dublin Steam Packet Company will show that the Irish sea can no longer be regarded in the light of a hindrance to the tourist traffic of Ireland The Democratic primary on last Monday was very warm to put it mild The committee declared it off and nominated a full ticket The

In 1824 eleven years after the foundation of Loretto Sister Generosa was received into the or der and for seventyfive years she has laboredzealously and faithfplly for the cause to which she offered her life She saw Loretto in its infancy when rude log cabins stood where now magnificent structures of modern architecture rear their walls heavenward Sister Generosa received from His Holiness Pope Leo XIII the Papal blessing a privilege enjoyed by but few She is possibly the oldest religious woman today in the United States Each number on the programme was carefully selected correctly rendered

the Clerkship of the Rathdown Union was held in Blackrock Town Hall under the auspices of time Irish National Amnesty Associa tion on Friday evening May 26 with William Field member of Parliament in the chair A deputation from the Execu tive Committee including President Lambert Miss Maud Gonne and other prominent speakers were present A circular was also issued in his behalf by the officers of the Amnesty Association from which we extract the following Our association has been for years past pledged in many public meetings to support time policy of providing positions for released political prisoners whenever possible The election of John Daly as Mayor of Limerick and of James F Egan for the Swordbearerslup the Corporation of Dublin indicated the settled determination of the Irish people to reward the men who were made to suffer by the British Government because they loved Ireland and because they attempted opposition to cruel laws and despotic administration As a great national issue should dominate local and personal con siderations we submit that the good ex ample set by Dublin and Limerick cities can be advantageously followed by the Rathdown Board of Guardians The Rathdown Union is now governed by a majority elected on an extended fran chise that would scarcely have been granted if in the bitter past and in more dangerous times than ours the fight had not been carried on by men like Thomas J Clarke Our candidate is not a dyna mitard He was tried under the treason felony statute and is therefore de jure a political prisoner If he had been con victed under the explosives act he would have been released after ten instead of sixteen years imprisonment But that was the cruel fate allotted to a youth of twentytwo sentenced on perjured evi dence and tried at a time when the mind of the British public was in such a state of fury and panic that the most notori ous English criminal had a better chance of justice than the most respectable Irishman accused of treasonfelony When the Parnell Commission better known as the Pigott Forgeries Commission was proceeding a detective specially inter vieted Mr Clarke and offered him not only liberty but government employ ment if he would give certain evidence He spurned the offer He was too good an Irishman to turn informer Is he not good enough for the Rathdown Union Surely n Nationalist who resisted so terrible a temptation refused so great a bribe and preferred to patiently endure such long and savage punishment ought to be eligible for office in a union that Irish Nationalists control It should be remembered that all the other candidates have a fair means of living Mr Clarke having been deprived of his employment and imprisoned by the British Government for sixteen years is in urgent need of the suitable and permanent position which it is now in the power of Irish Nationalists to give him II FATHER MURPHYS ANNIVERSARY Last Sunday at the late mass Rev Father Murphy of St Mary Magdalenes
