HAS THE LAUGH ON THE COLONEL Special Letter to the Kentucky Irish American SHKIBYVIWK Kv Aug 4Not even Lees elixir could smooth the ruffled feathers of the birds that gathered in the Sentinels sanctum ostensibly to condole with the disturbed editor but in reality to devise ways and means to make public the identity of the writer of the spirited and occasionally sensational letters peri odically appearing from this place in the columns of the Kentucky Irish Ameri can The sympathy ol the assembled victims of the incisive pert of the Shan Van Vocht was as a mere formality and as a blinding and deceptive preliminary offered to the drooping plant so lately transplanted because John Young Brown boldly refuses to play in Goebels backyard and Iindignantly and unpatriotically fails to water the geranium so that in all beauty and freshness it may deck and adorn the Cabinet of the King from Ken ton Will Kaltenbacher than whom no braver Democrat ever came down the pike presided we are informedwith dignity sufficient to make red wine turn blue For some moments Will twisted and twitched the seven fair hairs that he devoutly imagines adorn his upper lip This isa favorite exercise with the local editor of Goebels paper and when he is observed to be engaged in this mentally exhausting occupation the knowing ones say that the town is soon to suffer Joe Crane has been engaged for some time in pouring out the brilliancy of his intellect ual forces in compounding new tonics known only to the initiated in the tonsorial art to bring to perfection the fuzz on the lip of the Chairman of the above mentioned meeting- Unfortunately our age and our sex ex eluded us from the hall and from a par ticipation in the wise deliberations of the assembled sufferers For this reason we regret for the sake of our readers and admirers as well as for future history that we can only say that resolutions were enthusiastically passed declaring that no means nor expense should be spared to find out whether the Shan Van was not a man or a resident of Louisville This done it seems that Garret Lee pro posed adjournment but the presiding officer again gently toying with his incip ient mustache and fully cqgnizant of the dignity awl responsibility of his position refused to notice the motion All in all we are of the unalterable opinion that the editor of the Sentinel shouldspare a few moments from his political occupa tions and endeavor to have this meeting dramatized Should he feel his inability to perform the work we pledge him our undivided assistance which will be a guarantee of complete success Consid ering that they came together to discover the whereabouts of the Shan Van and who she is we propose for the new play the immortal words of PuckIIWhat Fools These Mortals BeIThe Colonel reasonably hoped for an invitation in recognition of his remark able patience and acknowledged success in teaching Gaelic to the Chairman of the gathering Alls his hopes were doomed to disppolnttnent Failing in his secretly planned efforts for admission he pleas antly spent the time in graphically narrating again to an intensely interested young lady his wonderful experiences on his recent trip to Mammoth Cave and the bloodcurdling escapes he had in the famous Corkscrew As this young lady in future will con tinue Ute work of the Shan Van Vocht whose age and infirmities coupled with ingratitude and disappointment oblige her to real her weary body and giv needed ease to her troubled spirit it Is well that I here introduce her to her future audience Her face is like a beau tiful flower and her expression guileless as that of a nun Her name she may reveal in her first production She innocently asked the Colrpel if Mr Kalten bacher was not the Shan Van and mani fested deep regret to hear that he con templated shaving the above mentioned mustache Equally ingenious was he query as to the truth of the rumpr that Dennis Ryan and Roger Sheedy aban doned the trip in the new rig in order to make it more interesting by going tandem She is one whom we certainly recom mend having on this occasion the pleaS- ure of her acquaintance We have no hesitation whatever in

and I dare say more pretty ones than any lovCii in Kentucky and yet single blessedness is very conspicuous all around Why is itor what is the matter I frequently wish for the good old days we Irish need to have here with hops picnics and parties I remember one hop in particular that I attended and had the Colonel for my gallant He took special pride in the getting up of this one and called it the ClannaGaels We had a splendid time which is putting it mildly1 and all came home in the wee sma hours Our present Representative to Fraukfort could tell you a long yes a very long storyas all his stories are usually that way about this very same one I was speaking about this occasion- a few days ago to some friends and of the ninny pleasant and affable boys and girls that were so jovial and jolly together in those good old times Many of them have since passed away God be merciful to them Pleasant memories of those and other days often c neo your hum file servant and t I wonder why the younger set now cant have those same good times together I have said as much to the Colonel but he says there is too much style now and Irish is not considered the proper thing or in other words not fashionable He you know is thoroughly Irish and most everything connected with him must be so He prides himself on his Irish tongue but we have the laugh on him just now It happened thus Not many moons back he was introduced to a priest from your city and as the good fathers name seemed to be Irish the Colonel addressed him in that language The priest looked at him in blank amazement and guessing at what he heard said Pretty well thank you He afterwards met a friend and asked him what sort of a fellow that man Casey was Hes all right No but is he an Irishman or a Dutchman Why an Irishman to be sure but why do you ask Well well I met hint this morning and he began talking Dutch tome I can assure the good father he was simply mistaken but he did not quite catch on to Caseys

the United States Preparations have been completed for holding the twentyninth annual con vention of the Catholic Total Abstinence Union of America which will convene in Chicago next Wednesday It is confi dently expected that the approaching convention will prove one of the largest and most interesting assemblages of the advocates of total abstinence ever held in the United States The union now numbers 80000 members and is perhaps the largest fraternal organization in America under the auspices of the Catholic churchOne of the principal features of the convention will be the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary the arrival in the United States of the great Irish apostle of total abstinence Father Mathew Father Mathew reached New York City fifty years ago and was met down the bay by a committee of the most prominent citi zens He was formally received by Mayor Woodhull and the Common Council For two weeks he heM levees in the City Hall and was the guest of honor at numerous public and private functions After leaving New York Father Mathew visited the principal cities in the United States in each of which he was entertained in the most lavish manner by citizens of all shades of religious opinion In Washington he was admitted to a seat in both houses of Congress an honor never accorded up to that time to any foreigner save Germ Lafayette and was the guest at a banquet tendered to him and fifty others by the President of the United States lie remained in this country for two years and a half and although he had come here broken in health and for the purpose of recreation and rest during that period he traveled over 37000 miles while visiting twenty five States and pledged more than 600 000 persons JESUIT MISSIONARIES Last week the Provincial of the Mis

DUBLIN Unionist Peers Spoil the Plan to Enlarge That CltyH Boundaries They Control A II airs iii the Sub nrl 8 Owning u Great Deal of Land Bill Sought to Annex Townships for Government and Taxation Purposes TORIES WOULD HAVE LOST OFFICE A cable dispatch to the New York World of Sunday says the city of Dublin is frantic with indignitioit over the emas culation by the House of Lords committee of a bill promoted by the Dublin corpora tion in Parliament to enable it to extend its boundaries by taking in a number of townships which have grown up around itsbordersThese which are practically a part of Dublin are mainly residential and in all except one the Tories have control of the governing bodies They gain all the advantages of proximity to the city of which 90 per cent of their residents use the roads and enjoy the public facilities but because the Dublin corporation has a Nationalist majority the townships fiercely resist any inclusion within the city boundaries The bill passed through the House of Commons where it was bitterly fought for twenty days though the corporation to disarm the townships conceded them a preferential tax rating and offered them a far larger representation in the proposed new governing bodlyof greater Dublin than they were proportionately entitled to In the House of Lords the bill was referred to a committee presided over by the Duke of Northumberland with four other Peers all except one of whom are Unionists The ground landlords of two of the principal townships which it is proposed to include in Dublin had to be Peers the Earl of Pembroke and Lord Ardilaun while some other Peers also quevfcairon The case made out for the bill was overwhelming but after fifteen days consideration the Duke of Northumber land without giving any reason an nounced that the committee could only pass the hill on condition that the town ships be excluded The other powers sought in the bill are unimportant So the decision is equivalent to a rejection of the bill after the corporation had spent 200000 promoting it Private bills are supposed to be dealt with by the committees purely on their merits and the vast majority of them are but in this case the Unionist Peers had u chance of obliging their Irish col leagues while dealing blow at an Irish Nationalist corporation and they could not resist the temptation The bill conies back to the House of Commons on Tuesday for an agreement with the Lords amendments and the Nationalist party are endeavoring to get it restored to its formershape but if they succeed it will certainly be thrown out by time Lords Bitter resentment is felt throughout Ireland at this scandalous abuse of its powers by the House of Lords and the only hope of the Dublin corporation now is in the support of the Gladstonian party in the House of Commons though a short time ago the corporation refused to give q site for a Gladstone memorial MACKIN COUNCIL Its Excursion to Sugar Grove Will Visit Now Albany Monday All arrangements

Organization Will Control Munster and Lelnstcr UNITED IRISH LEAGUE PROSPERS Every new Nationalist movement in Ireland now appears to produce a fresh schism and the proposal to erect a monument to Parnell is no exception to the rule says the Dublin correspondent of the World A meeting with that object was held under the Presidency of the Lord Mayor of Dublin this week and letters approving the project were read from Dillon and Justin McCarthy while John Redmond attended and spoke in its favor But the extreme section who are supposed in sympathy with Redmond developedstrong hostility on the ground that until the movement for raising a monument to Wolfe Tone of 1798 fame is successfully carried through Parnell should get no memorial Redmond argued that there was nothing inimical in the two projects but he could not allay the opposition and the motion in favor ofa Parnell monu ment was only carried after a hot debate i anda division which showed its oppon minoritySoamong time Irish Nationalists This week a proposal has been rustle that Sir Charles Gavan Duffy the octogenarian patriot should be given a free hand to arbitrate larlianmentaryfactions friends of his to Dillon Redmond

and the truth of it is illus trated all around us eVery day And it is not only the growing fat as it is called but the effect on the physical health of the in dividual even more than the effectt on the state of society in general that should induce every one to encourage the practice It is true some great men of other day thinking it added to their dignity refused to laugh or even to allow a semblance of a smile to cross their faces But such people throw a gloom over the community There is nothing so infectious as a good 4 hearty laugh and on hearing it one can hardly help joining even though not knowing the cause that produced the merriment Inthe early part of the century a French professor gave lessons iin the art of laughing not so much iin the interest of the health of his patient as to lead one to produce a euphonistic rippling sound as for the benefit of his purse The man whose laugh bubbles up spontaneously is never a pessimist but can always see the bright side of life and counts his friends by the num ber of his acquaintances It is tot of Napoleon that he once gained a battle by giving an order which caused a ringing laugh among the troops Then advancing rapidly on the enemy who heard the merriment and not understanding easily put them to rout Some doctors p C claim laughter is a cure for tha4 most Insidious and fallacious dis ease dreaded by all consumption t But a hearty laugh is so much different r from the vapid giggle there can be no comparison Now begin and all laugh heartily IRELAND AWAKENING No people have adapted them selves to the

intervening to save the war ring Irish from the wrath of each other have been disappointed The Irish people seem to nave 4 the importance of success in the limited opportunity given them for thtxe

Correspondents Injure Business PERSONAL AND SOCIETY NEWS NOTES Special Correspondence of the Kentucky Irish American FRANKFORT Kv August 4The an nouncement that exGov John Young Brown would again enter the political arena was received in the Capital City with mingled feelings of surprise and regret Staunch and tried friends who had always stood by him in his struggles for political honors at the hands of the Democratic party of Kentucky could not realize that now in the autumn of a well spent life after devoting the prime years of a noble manhood to fathering the fundamental principles of Democracy and its cause he would desert that party which had showered repeated honors upon him even to elevating him to the I Governors chair of the Grand Old Como monwealth of Kentucky And all for what The empty honor of a nomination for Governor upon a bolters ticket Gov Brown made an excellent executive and it is to be regretted that he should have taken the step which he took last weekThe Boltocrats in Frankfort are few and far betweenin fact it is almost imf possible to find a man who has recently voted the Democratic ticket who states that he will not support the ticket It is stated by conservative politicians that Franklin county will give the Democratic ticket 900 to 1000 majority There is strong talk of moving the Democratic Campaign Committees head quarters to Lexington as that city is more centrally located and has better railway connections with cities all over the State Col Percival Haley the efficient Secre tary of the State Central and Campaign Committees is confident of victory for the entire ticket Next Friday the Democratic primary for Jailer of Franklin county will come off At the present writing Col Joseph Holton who is making the race in the interest of Mrs James Alley widow of the late Jailer looks a winner with Col W E Lawrence a close second Atnovement ia now on foot to start anew weekly paper in this city It will be Democratic in politics and will support William Goebel and the entire Demo cratic ticket The first issue will appear about August 15 or 20 The wild reports sent out by reporters for Lexington and Cincinnati papers re garding the smallpox in Frankfort have injured business greatly in the Capital City There is not a single case of small pox in the city and no new cases are be ing reported The forty or fifty patients at the camp five miles from town are all doing well and will be discharged in a few days Any one contemplating visit ing the Capital City should not let the smallpox scare deter them as there is dantterSocially Every man woman and child who can scrape up the price has left for the lakes seashore or country while those who can not secure the essential have to stay quietly in the city and obey the mandates of the Health Board and refrain from attending socials dances or gatherings of any kind Even on Sunday the dread command is not relaxed anfl the beautiful chimes of the church bells on the bright Sabbath morn are not heard and Divine services are not held It isto be hoped that in a week or two at most this will all be over and social gayeties as well as religious services will be resumed Col R J Lynch proprietor of the Frankfort Marble and Granite Works received two carloads of fine marble and granite last week The works are now running overtime and employing three extra men

Society of Arts Rooms London when the Rev Edmutid Hogan S J delivered a lecture under the auspices of the Irish Literary Society on Irish Scholars AbroadRev Dr William Barry D Dpre sided and he introduced the reverend lecturer as one who had made an especial study of his subject Father Hogan in the course of his lecture said that from the time of St Patrick to the time of Henry II Ireland had been the nursery of zealot mission aries who had spread the faith through many a wide district of the continent of Europe where the names of Irish saints and martyrs are still held in reverence To those missionaries also was due the conversion of Scotland and of a large portion of Saxon Britain Ireland said the lecturer drew attention to herself by what her children did in large numbers not at home but abroad This foreign work was an achievement of the noblest kind the records of which have been preserved to us by continental writers of early times showing how generations of scholars and generations of apostles rose up in Ireland and went forth in the world to impart a knowledge of the bet ter life to come It was thus till the end of the sixteenth century at the end of which Irishmen had reached a high level of culture Among those who were celebrated at the time were eightyfive men who were mostly clergymen of the orders of Fran ciscans Dominicans and Augustinians He placed before the meeting the names of men who were not in the na tional category of biography but whom he presented as scholars abroad as distinguished in their paths as were Dr Conan Doyles Wild Geese The reverend lecturer then went on to describe particularly the work on the European continent of missionaries and scholars of Irish birth He said that in our day it seems to be the ambition of Balfour to promote the education of Irish Catholics by indirect endowment as in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries his ancestors the Cecils promoted the education of Catholics by direct endowment He then dealt at length with the theological writings and philosophical critical and scientific ef forts of men of Irish blood who had labored through the long years when it was dangerous for any Irishman to ac knowledge himself as such BIRTHDAY PARTY A delightful lawn fete was given at the home of Mr John Lintner No 1410 West Madison street on Tuesday evening in honor of the sixteenth birthday of his daughter Miss Susie The lawn and house were crowded by friends of the young lady and after a bounteous repast dancing and amusements were indulged in until a late hour FATtiER BOYLES PRESBYTERIAN BELL The good stories attributed to the late Father Boyle are constantly being added to and in Washington where he was widely known and beloved they are col lected treasured up and repeated for it is certain that while they were powerful to bring out a healthy laugh he never gave utterance to a pleasant conceit that carried with it the slightest sting Some years ago the chapel which Father Boyle was instrumental in building in the southeastern part of the city bought of the Presbyterian church nearby a large bell which had been discarded on account of a flaw in its construction that created a painfully harsh and discordant souud The bell was sent to a foundry where several inches of the lower rim was cut off It was then returned and put in place in the chapel The tones were now exceedingly soft and sweet and the bell a source of much pride to the congregation and pleasure to the neighborhood One day the pastor of the Presbyterian church meeting Father Boyle said to him Father Boyle I was passing the chapel recently and was struck by the rich mellow tones of your bell I think I never before heard anything so clear and chitnelike I quite envied you its possession Where did you get it That is the bell replied the father that we bought of yourcongregation- Is it possible said the pastor I can scarcely credit it What in the world did you do with it to bring about such a marvelous change Bussed it blissed it returned Father Boyle in a rich brogue and with a sly mischievous expression on his handsome happy countenance Blissed it and got the Presbyterian divil out of it and nothing else I assure you and with hearty laughter that brought the hearts of the two preachers closer together they went their several ways WARM WEATHER HINTS Protect food and dishes from flies A

Wales Emphatic TurnDown of the New York Snob A Who Was Nntiirnllzecl u British ISubjectDuring the Month of July t yWhy the Duchess of Buccleucl itAbated Her Animosity to r Americans R HIS SOCIAL LIGHT NOW DIMMED c 4tThe Associated Press dispatches of Tuesday from London contain the follow iiig The Gazette announces today that William Waldorf Astor was naturalized ia British subject July 11 of the present year Not Mr Astor said the Prince oft Wales drawing his pencil through the t name of the man of many millions when a it appeared in the list of guests invited to meet him at a grand house party in Scot land a week or so ago Not Mr Astor t He bores me And that is the climax of William Wal II dorf Astors years of maneuvering to get into the higher social circles of England says the London correspondent of the WorldEven his roundabout denunciation of his country even the eulogy of his an cestors which he printed in his own Pall Mall Gazette and in which he claimed descent from the noble old Spanish house of Astorganot even these nor above all the millions which cameto him from in vestments in the country which he has renounced have won him the prize for which he yearned with all the intensity of bis soul He bores me That is reported on T high authority to be the verdict of the Prince of Wales And the Prince of Wales is the supreme arbiter of all things social in England What bores the Prince bores society Mr Astors social career in England is in danger o At the dinner tables of Belgravia and Mayfair the story is going the rounds And Mr Astor himself went away from London long before the season in which he had hoped to shine so conspicuously was over It was through the innocent efforts of the Duchess of Buccleuch to push Mr Astors fortunes that the disaster came upon him The Duchess of Buccleuch hast long been the millionaires social spon moor Not because she was fond of Mr Astor nor indeed fond of the group of Americans of whom he is a type in Lou donIn fact the hostility of the Duchess to Americans has long been notorious She was formerly the leader of the groupof grand ladies who started the movement to exclude Americans from the inner circle of the great London social world Her influence in this particular world was potent She is one of the grandest ladies in all England and enjoys precedence over all that are not of royal rank by reason of the high office she holds atII courtthat of Grand Mistress of Household and of the Robes to Her Majesty the Queen So it happened that all the world wondered when the mighty Duchess of Buc cleuch suddenly made a complete revolu tion in her attitude toward Americans From being the leader of the antiAmeri can hosts she became the sponsor and social promoter of one of the richest Americans that had ever lingered lovingly at the threshold of London society The reason of the Duchess sudden change of heart was not long in being brought to light The Duchess has a brotherLord Frederick Hamilton Mr Astor appeared upon the scene with his Pall Mall Magazine and it was a ver table boom to the Duchess of Buccleuch r when he made Lord Frederick Hamilton editor of the Pall Mall at an absurdly z high salary If there was a business ar rangement of which this move was a part t it is but justice to the Duchess of Buc cleuch to say that she conscientiously carried out her part of the compact Mr Astors social star began to shine Both he and his daughter were taken up generally The Duchess even pre sided over everyone of the magnificent entertainments which Mr Astor gave On the other hand both Mr Astor and r his daughter were sure to be found at all the social functions given by the Duchess I of Buccleuch Now on various of these occasions Mr Astor had the felicity to be presented to the Prince of Wales Amiable and easygoing as the Prince is the one thingthat he can not endure is being bored He perpetually wishes to hear r something new in which he is not un like other people But as a Prince he can make his wishes law All London knows this and all London has laughed more than once even before this last episode at the adroit maneuvers by which his Royal Highness hasbvoided being left exposed to the conversation of Mr Astor or of any one else whom he nobodyxthe Prince had at last definitely and distinctively turned Mr Astor down t It is whispered that throughout the u present season the descendant of the house of Astorga has endeavored to com mit the Prince to being the star guest at Cliveden on the Thames or failing1at z to visit the Astor house In town But to all hints the Prince turned a deal ear rie is kindly In temperament and oblig ling to the lastdegree but his time is iuchi occupied he has rSlenand herd xi iiWtoy nien and things arid Is as easily ibotW by the familiar as hriaeager for thenovelI He imply could riot and woalduot agree to be Mr of hono with all tlist that iwAlleadofl exposure to the Astorian conversational giftsAnd now it is the common talk of London that he has put the climax omit all and definitely closed the Astor chapter for once and for all It happened according to the stories current in this wayWhen it was announced recently that the Prince of Wales would be obliged to proceed to Edinburgh in order to preside nt some public ceremony there the Duke mid Duchess of Buccleuch as the principal persons of the district asked the fu ture King of England to honor them by staying at their Palace of Dalkeith during his sojourn in the North In accordance with the usual custom on the occasion of such visits of royalty the Duchess drew up for the inspection of her distinguished guest a list of the persons whom she had asked to help in the entertainment of the heir apparent This submission of the names of tin guests to be present either at a ball a dinner or a house party to a royal per sonage who is invited is the inevitable custom in the old world Usually the distinguished person makes no altera tion As a rule he or she merely writes to the hostess that the composition of the party is admirable Occasionally the royal personage will add names of one or two more persons but very rarely indeed will he erase any name from the list sub mitted to him thereby expressing his disinclination to meet the person in ques tion The object of this arrangement of course is to avoid meetings with the royal personage which might be in them selves personally disagreeable or which might give rise to undesirable political influencesThe that it is almost solely upon political grounds that the royal guest ever bars a person whose name is in the list submitted to him makes the snub reported to have been given to Mr Astor the more cutting When the list of guests whom the Duchess of Buccleuch had invited was submitted to the Prince of Wales his Royal Highness merely glanced carelessly over them in his easy amiable way and was about to pass them as being persons whom lie would be charmed to meet when he happened to notice toward the end of the list the uame of William Val dorf Astor In an instant as the London story has it the royal blue pencil slashed through the name and obliterated it Not Mr Astor his Royal High ness is reported to have said decisively Co Mr Astor bores me There was no social objection to Mr Astor and politically he did not threaten any complications It was not because he was or has been an American because he is a man without a any country And besides the Prince of Wales has too often shown his high consideration of Americans by marked attention to them He was excluded according to the London version of the affair on the broad general humor principle that he was a lore to the Prince of Wales That was all- That represents the sum total of the social achievements Mr Astor has won by renouncing his country and his coun trymen by the purchase of princely Cliveden by millions of money lavished in ostentatious entertainments and by persistent social campaigning backed by unlimited money When the list with the name of Astor erased by the royal hand was returned to her there was nothing left for the un fortunate Duchess of Buccleuch to do save take upon herself the disagreeable task of notifying Mr Astor of the calam recallingherhim she would be delighted to welcome him but the Prince did not feel equal to it and had specifically objected That is the story as it is now being told in London clubland There is no record of Mr Astors ex pressions of opinion on the subject and it is even doubtful if he gave vent to any such expressions The only thing known about Jthe effect of the snub upon him is that immediately after receiving it he suddenly departed from London in the midst of the season and soon after issued his gratuitous announcement with regard to his own distribution of invitations to entertainments at his various houses MRS LEE LET OUT Jail Matron Will Be Succeeded by Mrs Anna Logan of Indianapolis Mrs Anna Lee who has held the position of matron of

Oblate Sisters of Providence sixtyone years ago and has been at St Francis Colored Convent in Baltimore for thirty years- Cardinal Gibbons once asked Sister I Helen about her age She replied that she did not know exactly but remem bered that she was eighteen years old when the British burned the Government buildings in Washington in 1814 She was born in Prince Georges coun ty of slave parents who were carried by their masters to Washington shortly be fore the arrival of the British Sister Helen regales the other Sisters with news of the war of 1812 and the time when The Star Spangled Banner was first sungHer story of the burning of the un finished Capitol the Presidents home treasury building and other buildings by the British is a realistic one She says she frequently saw President Madison UNHOLY ALLIANCE An Eastern paper cautions Americans of Irish birth or lineage against opposing an AngloAmerican alliance and says that to oppose the development friendly relations between England and the United States because of wrongs done to Ireland by the former is to be guilty of a hidebound bourbonism which forgets nothing of past hates and learns nothing of present and future possibilities The Boston Republic replies to its contemporary in the following trenchant style Of course Let us forget the evictions in Ireland the domiciliary visits to homes at night the ghastly scenes in the prison yards when Irish patriots were hanged for loyalty to Ireland the expa triation of millions of Irish who fled from famine pestilence and butchery What are these trifles to the sons and grandsons of Irish victims of British oppressionTThey are merely incidents in the great Anglo Saxon movement for civilization and trade Let us forget OConnell Grattan Emmet Parnell Mitchell McGee Duffy Dillon McCarth Davitt and all the other Irish patriots who labored and suffered for the cause of Irish nationality It is bourbonism according to the new dispensation to recall their struggles their sacrifices and heroic efforts We must not look back upon these scenes I toIl indeII1 ple of the Philippines I We respectfully decline to accept the I new gospel of grab and plunder as I proBritishII WeII blighting consequences upon the Irish I inflictedIfor the purpose of strengthening the hand of John Bull This may be bour bonism We care not what it may be called We are opposed to it and we view with suspicion the American of whatever lineage or antecedents who advocates a combination between Uncle Sam and John Bull for piratical purposes It may be bourbonism to recall the dark days of our own civil war when England supplied ships and men and money to the States in rebellion It may be bourbonism to remember the Mason and SHdell incident the rescue of Captain Semmes of the Alabama by a British yacht and the scores of other manifesta tions of hoshility But we refuse to for get them And we will continue to dis trust England and to reject her profes sions of friendship now that she needs American sympathy If it be good policy to go into partnership with John Bull and to grab every bit of unoccupied land or every bit that a weaker nation may hold let us throw off the mask at once and proclaim the monarchy As a republic based upon the great declaration of independence we are out of place in such a partnership r EUCHRE AND DANCE The Misses Hannon entertained last
