first and earnestly hoping that the next year may bring health and and increased circulation we hasten to explain time various causes of our late silence With drooping spirits of a nearly broken heart we must again for the last time notice our quondam lover the youthful at Frankfort Although his was the most unkindest cut of aUwe had hopes that his juve nile affections were sincere and that never would he drop us in a letter writ ten as he tells us while the hills trem bled and the Kentucky river began to dry Ye gods and little fishes how he felt when he noticed our which vainly he tried to eclipse His pen trembled and his per suaded him that the whole with him No wonder we have not been able to wield our flowing pen since the public that in future his love was transferred and no longer would he meet us by alone The shock was too much for our ancient nerves but time the best friend of all the rejected and indeed dejected has come to our aid and now we must admit that with all his faults we love him still I want yo my honey yes I do Bonneath leath D J M Besides this ruthless and severe shatter 4 ing of our nervous system we also lost much sleep and suffered much anxiety from the results apparent from our county and State conventions Now rest and sleep come to satisfy the clamorous cravings of our disturbed nature Sorely were we disturbed by the con stant absence from our midst of Charley Lewis whom a wise Providence trans planted and ordained should not merely steer the course of the Shelby Sentinel through places dark with danger but that he should watch with jealous solici tude over the destinies of Goebel and the interests of his that he should be the mighty molder of public opinion in these regions and that his known and his latent talents should find a field worthy his abilities in directing the recent laboring from which came forth much to Charleys disgust only a public library used chiefly as a can not afford to have this man absent from our midst but can reconcile ourselves to the inevitable next Novem ber since we understand he has under taken to initiate the classic editor of the News into the of successful and profitable politics after the flower has faded We met our friend Hon M OSulli van in the Courthouse He looked like the last rose of summer or one who spent sleepless rights thinking what Goebel has in store for Charley Lewis In a few days intimate friends of the Shelby Rep tesentative tell us he will come out in a card thanking his constituents for con tinual confidence their wishes in calling upon him again to be the but assuring them that he is obliged to decline the honors they and kindly offered as his business interests wouldl suffer were he again to sacrifice time and1 talent to public office It is however hoped

Vocuf PHIL DONAHUE DEAD Sad Termination of the Life of a Promising Young Man One of the saddest deaths that is paper has yet called upon to notice was that of Phil Donahue which occurred Wednes day

thirtyfive years of age he had long been recognized as one of most active and honorable politicians in the city and those whom he supported considered him a tower of strength His great popularity is best evidenced by the fact that he was the only man who was ever able to encompass the defeat of the late Jack Mellet In the Tenth ward Be sides he was well and favorably known all over the city and his public and pri vate records were noted for integrity anti and probity During the past month Jie had been subject to frequent attacks ofepileptic fits and in the past week had suffered from no less than seven of them Wednesday morning he had a very severe at tack and although everything that could be was done for him he passedaway His remains were immediately brought to Ins former home at

expected of them Capt Breen put them through a regular drill follow ed by a number of difficult evolutions each of which was warmly applauded The drill put up was a surprise to their friends and much of its success is due to the admirable work and energy of Lieuts Jerry Hallihan and Arthur Campbell In the park an excellent band with Prof Morbach discoursed patriotic Irish and American airs while in the dancing hall Ludwigs Union Band kept the young folks tripping the light fantastic to enchanting strains until a late hour Throughout the garden were scattered various games for the amusement of

Against Expansion Received With Great Cheering In Georgia The Hon William J Bryan addressed the Barnesville Chautauqua at Barnes ville Ga Tuesday The crowd which greeted him was enormous and his re ception enthusiastic In introducing Mr Bryan the Hon Clark Howell editor of the Atlanta Constitution and member the National Democratic Committee from Georgia referred to the fact that Georgias delegation through one of its members had presented Mr Bryans name for nomination at the Chicago convention lIe referred to the last Presidential campaign and predicted the reaffirmation of the last Democratic plat forn by the next Democratic convention and treated Mr Bryans nomination as a1 foregone conclusion Mr Bryan spoke of the celebration of the Fourth of July which was more gen eral in all parts of time country than ever before and referred to the part the South had shared with the North in sending men to war against Spain He claimedj only one purpose and that was to find out what was the best for this country It was impossible he said to discuss public affairs as a nonpartisan He was again willing to place the issues before the conntry on the plans laid down by Thomas Jefferson In closing his speech the speaker took a decided stand against expansion and his words were received1 with great cheering Mr Bryan said Holding the Philippine Islands against time will of their inhabitants involves a new departure in government I do not want as part of this nation people who can not read the Declaration of Inde pendence The doctrine of force lies be hind not in front of us The expansion argument is the argument of George III Shall we say on this day ofcelebration yearsrrtake the Bible in one hand and the gun in the other Thank God I am not in favor of this way of Christianizing We shall not depart from a republican form of government We are not ready to ac cept the doctrine of conquest and force It is not the desire of the Republicans to do good but the desire to gain more money that lies behind their colonial policy PLEASANT OCCASION Mr and Mrs James Miller were ten tlereda reception Monday evening upon I I f h Itno rc f J their return from their wedding

the Columbia and now deigns to say just a little about the prospects of the Shamrock and to give out a few facts He declares that he has the utmost confi dence in his latest creation lIe stated to the Worlds Rothesay correspondent Saturday that he believes the challengers sailcarrying powers are indicated by the extraordinary size of her ocean spars She will be ketch rigged like the Valkyrie III but on a much bigger ninetyfeetstumpyThesafeguard against wreckage and collision Some Fairlie workmen were shown a piece of the aluminum used in the Sham rock and they were greatly astonishedat its lightness but were doubtful whether it would stand a gale of the western oceanA Southampton correspondent wires that although everything is being kept very secret as to the trial race of the Shamrock and Britannia the Shamrock will probably be completed as far as pOSe sible now by Wednesday while the Brit annia will not be much later though she is being recoppered The point has now been set at rest as to whether there are to be any races When the statement was first made an explanation was given tot the press that no racing was intended and that the Shamrock would merely test her speed with the Britannia But since itliasbeenofficially stated there will be racing The Prince of Wales will if possible be present on at least one occa sion but no date has yet been fixed Capt ONeill has been interviewed and in reply to questions said- I have seen the Shamrock and it is anythinglikewatching very carefully the Columbiasj trials with the Defender I know the Defender of old She is a fast boat

discharge of their duties developing nection with the Irish language movement DEATH OF MRS MULDOON The announcement of the death of Mrs Alice Lithgow Muldoon wife of Col Mike Muldoon last Saturday

successful picnics ever given in Frankfort Every Fourth for the past three years this council has given its annual picnic and on each oc casion it has rained but last Tuesday morning the sun shone

every member of the order exerted him self to make all have a pleasant Fourth of July and well they succeeded The wives and sisters of the members ren dered much valuable assistance in make ing the picnic a financial as well as a social success Onehalf of the sum realizedover and above the expenses the order generously donated to the fund for purchasing an new organ for the Church of the Good

SATURDAY JULY 8 1899 h WE ARE ONE YEAR OLD r With this issue the Kentucky F Irish American enters upon its second year We have endeavore- to give to our fellow Irish Amer icans a clean interesting family paper and at the same time advo cate their best interests defend them from injustice and calumny and encourage fraternity and liar mony among them Perhaps we have not fulfilled expectations no paper ever does the first year Too much is generally expected and there is no consideratian of the dif ficulties to be overcome the labor and sacrifice in establishing a news paper by the general reading public We have despite all this ignored partisanship schemes and side issues for monetary or other gains and adhered to our an nounced policy of an IrishAmer f ican organ devoted to their inter ests and defense first of all and striven to give to them a paper free from vulgarity vituperation and everything offensive to the sense off propriety Whenever Irish Amer icans have been assailed ridiculed1 or unjustly treated no matter by whom we have resented it In the recent political contest in this city without espousing either side we defended IrishAmericans from at tacks and protested against unfair ness to them by the press and polit ical leaders on both sides In that contest not yet concluded Irish Americans were and are still di vided as they have a right to be and while in common with all other citizens they will probably fight it out to a finish we propose to defend them in that right and to resent any imputation or act against them because they are Irisha practice altogether too common in this community in the past fifty years IrishAmericans are entitled to the same privileges and respect as all other citizens nand even though we may disagree with some of them on the issues really involved we shall insist that the issues be fairly and decently discussed and decided without slurs insults or unfairness to IrishAmer icans no matter what political party or candidate they advocate or opposeVe detest that spirit which de cries and would deprive of the priv ileges of our liberal government and institutions any one on account of race or religion and those who indulge in such toryism will cer tainly be called down by the Ken tucky Irish American We believe that is what we arc here for and have done it on every occasion to date striking sometimes in one direction and again in another A sometimes this newspaper and then that or this political party or the r otherbut always in behalf of p IrishAmerican interests We know t that in the excitement of politics 4 our real position and motive in crit f Polif ticians may have n or questioned by those who sided with the same politicians but time re k veals all clearly and in the right rforwe had occasion to criticise all ti parties in the brief campaign and r for the same thingridiculing slan dering or unfairly treating Irish Americans What we did we are vYready to do again if the occasion offers regardless of who may be the guilty party To those who have shown their appreciation of the Kentucky Irish American by their aid and patronage we are thankful assuring them it has been fully appreciated and those who for whatever reason I have not given us their support we trustwill show their appreciation ofI f IJ I 4- J unnnno n the paper by increasing its circula tion and usefulness for the wider its circulation the greater its iuflu indwhose interest it is published And to all we promise and hope before our next anniversary to make the Kentucky Irish American livelier brighter more newsy and interest iuga paper worthy of the cause and the people it represents THE PHILIPPINES The allimportant question before the American public today iis whether we will retain our illgottet spoils in the far East even at the cost of a long and exhausting war or recognize the fact that we have made a terrible blunder withdraw our troops and turn the islands over to their rightful owners for a reasonable compensation Anyone who reads the meager reports sent by Gen Otis can easily see that our troops are meeting with more disasters than are reported Up to this date we have lost in killed 650 men 1300 have been wounded and 65cx have been disabled through sick ness Over 63000000 have been so far expended The war is cost ing over 400000 per day The question naturally arises For what purpose is all this waste of life and treasure Are there any climatic geographical or ethnological reasons that can be given that would war rant our intermeddling in the affairs of those people Since the fundamental principle of our own Government is that all governments derive their just powers from the consent of those governed it is impossible to see wherein comes our moral right to impose our system upon an unwilling people The climate is such that no American can live there for any length of time without becoming enervated The Philippine Islands are 600 miles nearer the equator than Cuba Everyone knows how debilitating is a life in the latternamed island They are situated nearly eight thousand miles from San Francisco and to retain them in case of war with any power will necessitate the establishment of a large standing army and huge navy far beyond their worth to us as a nation The inhabitants are composed of a mul titude of Asiatic tribes who neither know nor care to know our institutions Until recently our Govern ment on account of its policy of noninterference in the affairs of other nations was the admiration of the entire world But in a few short months we have thrown aside the policy that made us great and respected and have picked up the manners and shibboleth of a com mon grasping people Since this war has begun we hear nothing from the jingo and Administration press but that theFilipiuos are fierce savage and incapable of selfgov ernment Impartial writers and fairminded men such as Dr Mc Queston Gen King and others who have lived among them bear testimony to their high order of civilization When Henry II ob tained his famous bull from Pope Alexander Nicholas Breakspeare permitting him to interfere in the affairs of Ireland he employed Ute identical arguments against the Irish that the American press are today using against the Filipinos- It behooves Irishmen and the sons of Irishmen as liberty lovers to follow the example of our German fellowcitizens Let mass meetings such as was held in Cincinnati on July 3 be called and let this trim finalwar of aggression be denounced At the meeting referred to the prin qipal ministers of all denomina I O to 1 v t j y j P i f r tions including two Jewish rabbis were present We have recently heard a great deal from such preach ers as Talmage about spreading the gospel among the Philippines These gunpowder evangelists would have us pursue the course adopted by Mahomet who spread his doc trine with the Koran in one hand and the sword in the other Our retention of those islands will in crease too per cent our chances for war with other nations What is our country coming to when an officer in the regular army Gen Merriamgoes out of his way to denounce labor unions This servant of the people who gets his sustenance from the very men he denounces was sent to Ida ho to preserve the peace in the re cent dispute between the mine own ers and miners in that State In stead of attending strictly to what he was sent there fornamely to preserve order he rushes into print and suggests that labor unions be prohibited by law It is gratifying to say that Gen Merriam has been reminded by the authorities at Washington that his duties as a military man did not justify him to make any such suggestion Let labor unions all over the country pass resolutions denouncing the utterances of this prig and let the matter be brought to the attention of the Chief Executive The heralded amicable settle ment of the Chinese question over which England made a bluff at war and tried to coax the United States to join her in protecting AngloSaxon commerce leaves England in an undesirable position in the division of the Chinese Em pire as shown by a map of the pro posed division by the nations Russia has the whole northeast corner bordering on Siberia except Coreaand she will take that when she wants itgiving her all the Pacific ports she needs France gets the southern strip joining her possession in Siam which she will continue to push westward toward India England is in between on the coast with what remains of the guaranteed Chinese Empire blocking her westward progress Evidently Johnny Bull has been buncoed An exchange truly says that it is always best to wait for the evi dence before passing judgment When you hear reports detrimental to others dont be hasty in forming conclusions Today it is some body else but tomorrow it may be on you Trouble comes to us all and we should extend the same charity we expect from others Gossip distorts and magnifies

Selling OutMore About Beautiful Kll larney It is the fashion to consider Ireland a charming place to live out of especially by those who have never tested the charms of living in it but have fully tested those of living on it It was never out of fashion to draw salaries and pen sions from Ireland and rents to the ut most penny that could be extracted Ab senteeism is still the rule among a large proportion of the leading land owners Lord Dillon whose estate in Mayo has just been sold to the Congested Districts Board for a large sum was a complete stranger in Ireland and never resided at Loughglynn the family residence near Castlerea County Roscommon A few years ago this house then inhabited by the agent of the property was burned down accidentally It is certainly a matter for regret that two of the most beautiful of Irelands natural picturesque belongings should be in danger one after another ot being closed to the public as free resorts and spiteofGiants Causeway has been acquired by a company who levy a toll for the priv ilege of seeing what formerly was open tearstthat the Muckross estate which is in the market and which includes the beautiful Lakes of Killarney may be purchased by somebody who will either exclude the public entirely or put on a price for ad mission Some effort is being made in Ireland to avert this catastrophe and the National Trust for Places of Historic In terest or Natural Beauty has advertised a meeting at Grosvenor House with the same object As the sum required is only littleodifficulty in securing Killarney from the fate of the Giants

Plainly Stated Catholic Bishops Issue Maul festo Presenting the Case to Government Irish Catholics Claim Only Same Rights Allowed Others in Ireland BALFOURS CONSTRUCTION ACCEPTED The Catholic Bishops at their meeting at Maynooth recently adopted an important resolution on the university ques tion It was perfectly natural that they should notice the subject in a formal manner and it was also to be expected that they would do so in very plain and decided terms The position in which the question stands is as aggravating as it is unique As the Bishops point out the leading politicians on both sides in Eng land have admitted the justice of the Catholic claim the man who has most ably advocated that claim of late is actually one of the principal members of the present Government yet religious bigotry is still so strong and rampant in England that it is able to terrorize Minis ters into absolute inaction Is it any wonder under these circumstances that Bishops should speak out and speak out strongly and should seize their annual meeting this year as a suitable occasion to do so especially in view of the very reasonable stand they have recently taken on the points at issue One remark made in the Bishops man ifesto will be Indorsed and must neces sarily be indorsed by Mr Balfour in particular It is that while the claim now made for a university for Irish Catholics is dented unionism is incom patible with the concession of justice to the majority of the people of this coun try Mr Balfour himself said as much and almost in so many wordsin his famous letter some time since to his constitu ents in Manchester when he asked them how he could defend the principalof Unionism if what the Irish Catholics asked for in this matter were refused As the Bishops advanced this political argument however they might well have gone further and condemned the bigotry not merely of some Unionists but of many socalled home rule Liberals also It is notorious that the strongest opponents in England of the Irish Catho lie claim are to be found in the Liberal campnamely among the Nonconform ist section It is scarcely too much to say that it is these latter who have been the real motive power of the agitation against any concession and we are con vinced that itis fear of them rather than of the bigots on their own side which has stayed the hands of Ministers As the Bishops were at it we repeat they might well have censured expressly the bigotryof the Nonconformists- The allusion to the endowments of Trinity College with which the Bishops manifesto concludes is no doubt but an other way of saying that if there is not to be leveling up there should be level ing down and the opponents of the Catholic claim may as well make up their minds that if justice to Irish Catholics continues to be denied that thought will occur to many At the same time there must be no misunderstanding on this subject Irish Catholics have no desire whatever to touch Trinity College or its revenues If the Protestants wish to keep both they are perfectly welcome to both They have had them for three hundred years and let them retail them In this matter Irish Catholics are perfect ly willing to let bygones be bygones especially as Trinity College through Its present Parliamentary representatives has ranged itself on the side of the Irish Catholics The only danger to Trinity College arises from a continuance of the present Protestant monopoly of the means of acquiring higher education and this fact also was plainly pointed out by Mr Balfour in the letter to which we have already referred The conclusion Is clear From the point of view of those iuterrested in the Protestant foundation as well as in the Union the bigotry which stands in the way of justice being done all round must be stamped upon and defeated JUNIORLeAOUB CHAMPIONS The Dr C P Melton base ball team has so far proven itself the champion of C s 5t if 1t Of the Junior League in this city having

Between Condi tions in South Africa and British Guiana Justice Which the British Dis pense When They Have the Power WILL OPEN THE EYES OF AMERICANS A dispatch from London to the New York Journal says Michael Davitt has discovered a paral lel between the Boers refusal to grant to the Uitlanders the franchise and the treat ment of the Dutch populace in British Guiana He prepared a series of ques tions to be put in Parliament on the sub ject but the Speaker overruled them Davitt handed the questions to the correspondent saying it would help to open the eyes of Americans to the kind of justice which the British dispense when they have the power as compared with the clamorous demands they make when other nations treat them after their own fashion- A copy of the questions was sent to Joseph Chamberlain who did not deign to reply In substance Davitt asked whether Chamberlains attention had been directed to the proposed convention in Boston during the present month of a body calling itself the Junta of British Guiana whether there are grounds for the grievances which are alleged among the mining and agricultural population of the colony as to a restricted franchise and nonrepresentative system of government whether out of a total popula tion of upward of 300000 there are less than 3000 voters in that colony whether any of the Dutch native Guianans hold any office in the government of the colony and if it be true that the admin istratlon and legislation franchise of the colony is exclusively in the hinds of the Britishborn citizens who number only 3000 of the total population SPORTY ITEMS The best pugilistic event that ever took place in this city was witnessed by a small crowd at Music Hall Monday night when George Dixon disposed of Sam Bolen in three rounds The fighting was fast and furious Dixon being in structed by Tom ORourke to make short work of his adversary Bolen displayed great pluck but never stood any chance to win the title to the featherweight championship Dixon had been training here for his match with Tommy White which takes place in Denver Tuesday evening The fight was under the aus pices of the Nonpariel Athletic Club and the small attendance has been to the knocking of those whose greed and mismanagement had almost ruined the sport in Louisville The contests under the auspices of the Nonpariel Club are always on the square no fakes or letups being permitted Frank Erue of Buffalo had no trouble In wrestling the lightweight champion ship from Kid Lavigne before the Haw thorne Club Monday night They went to the full twenty
