Prove Him of Eng lish Ancestry Falls in Its Purpose Sure He Was Irish and His People Came From LOn doiulcrry Orator and Statesman Whom Kentucky Honored and Still Reveres BUT IN IRISH HIS NAME WAS CLEIGH For all the pains which have been taken to give Henry Clay an English an vestry as Elbert Hubbard points out there seems to be no doubt that his peo ple were farmer folk near Londonderry Ireland where they had been settled for many generations spelling their name who are familiar with the fea tures of this almost the most popular of American statesmen will find no diffi culty in taking this view while the long brows and the lean spare active frame all make against his being of time brawnier Saxon breed His easy familiarity never bringing on contempt however indulged was one of the chief causes for his enormous a warm and tender heart which in vited affection These things are Celtic matters making to the same end And it is curious to find him bidding a formal farewell of time Senate at the close of his term then changing his mind and going back once more Ihe impulsive change able Irishman in everything His oratory is the convincing thing though after all for there the fervor the imagination and time wit of time most fen entlm aginalive and witty folk on time globe all shone and glittered And whisky Henry Clay came from the world knows what that has meant from the days of Daniel Boone to time present reign of the Bourbon Ashland the home of time statesman and still the home of his descendants is on the outskirts of the city of Lexington A Clays birthplace so named because it fr ihe embattled farmer so successfully fired the shot heard round the world in the New England town The estate on which the mansion stands comprises GOO acres and it is all kept in a high state of cultivation Every one knows Kentucky horses and Kentucky cattle are only less famous Ashland abounds in both and they make a pleas ant sight for city men to see as Hubbard describes them In the house the way to which is lined with locusts planted by the very hands of the Senator there are numberless signs of leis former occupancy His books are there just as he left them save for the reverent use given them by his descend ants They show how much he obtained from them by marginal notes in his clear delicate handwriting on almost every page There are portraits of him and busts of him in marble and bronze His pistols for Clay fought two duels and was an American in his still uninjured by time and rust his saddle bridal and spurs remain to bespeak his graceful hardly an accom plishment among Kentucky gentlemen his books and diaries with countless letters from all sorts of people stand yellowing with age to show him the great politician he wasno less than statesman And all about the house climb flowering vines and great trees stand here and there to tell of the virgin forests which the men from Virginia conquered long years ago Ruins are rare in the United States yet such well preserved memories of our great men of two or three generations ago are rarer It is a pleasant reflection that the want which dulled the later r lives of so many of our public servants bad lio part in the closing scenes of this brave Americans life He was but time Mill Boy of time Slashes time son of a poor Baptist preacher in Virginia and the names of his very brothers and sis ters have riot been preserved for us What he made himself all the world knows No breath cf slander touched his fair name from his earliest successes at the bar to his forensic efforts in time Senate lie

hymnbooks being distributed in all the pews The interior of time rectory underwent also a thorough renovation The expense of all this has been covered mostly by time offerings made by time people at the Tuesday services which are held in honor of St Anthony under whose special protection the mission was put by the present rector These Tues day devotions after time handsome and most lifelike statue of the saint which decorates one of time side altars had been erected became so popular that the church could not hold the crowds and the services had to be duplicated and triplicated in order

time diocese was removed froni Bardslown to Louisville in 1843 and Bishop Flaget came here Then began the move for a larger and finer Cathedral There was opposition even among the clergy to erecting the new Cathedral on the present site it being urged that it should occupy a more prominent place in time cityJefferson street opposite the courthouse where time Willanl Hotel stands being urged But it was finally decided to build on time site of St Louis Cathedral which was torn down The Mexican war and time financial panic of 1847 delayed matters and it was not until 1849 that time work begun and on July 15 time cornerstone was laid The mass was sung by Very Rev John McGill Vicar General of the dio cese subsequently Bishop of Richmond Va with Rev Otto JairO S F dea con and Rev J M Bruyere

ago there were but three Catholic churches in Louisville butin the next few years St Johns at Clay and Walnut St Marys at Eighth and Grayson and St Patricks at Thirteenth and Market were built But then came trying times Know Nothingism and Bloody Monday in which every Catholic church was threatened and the Cathedral narrowly eaped destruction by the mob Bishop Spalding successor of Bishop Flagel who died in 1850 bearing of the threats locked up the building took thekeys to Mayor Barbee and noti responsiI But the Mayor seemed powerless and the Cathedral was only saved by the in

Favor Rev olution In All Countries Save England Throughout a long series of years Eng lish journalists politicians and statesmen have been the consistent friends of agita tion revolution and disorder in every country save their own In the first quarter of the present century this char acteristic was evidenced by the manner in which England assisted the revolu tionary juntas of Southern America in their long conflict with Spain as well as the Liberals of Spain and Portugal in the great civil wars which did so much to wreck the prosperity and power of countries which had been atone time her own equal in military and naval strength as well as in material prosper ity hater on in the case of Hungary Italy and Poland Englishmen were among the most active and liberal of the supporters of the various revolutionary movements in the countries named We are not now discussing the question as to whether or not these movements had justification or the reverse We are sim ply stating a fact which contrasts some what curiously with the attitude adopted by Englishmen whenever as in the case of Ireland India Jamaica Canada or Egypt they have been called upon to deal with anything in the nature of popu lar uprising against their own domina tion The displays of feeling to which we refer bear out the accuracy of Moores statement that Rebels at home are pa triots at MedddSyracuse Sun CATHEDRAL

191899 ROBS CITY TAXPAYERS The notices for State and county taxes are being received by property owners and are provoking surprise 1 indignation and curses The in crease of about 40 per cent or F from 52 j to 694cents on the roo is not due to an increase of the State tax rate which is the same as heretofore 524 cents but to the fact that the county tax of r7 cents on the 100 is added by the County Fiscal Court because they allege the Court of Appeals has decided that in future the county tax must be levied and collected by the Sheriff As to the hereafter the Fiscal Court may be right though even then it will be as it was intended by the yaps who adopted it in the Leg islature robbery of city taxpayers for tine benefit of the rural taxpay ers But that aside for the pres ent The tax of 17 cents levied by 4 the Fiscal Court this year and sought to be collected by the Sheriff from Louisville taxpayers has been already levied on their property by the City Assessor and paid by most of them in their city taxes for 1899 and this money has been loaned by the city to the Fiscal Court to pays county expenses till the 17 tax levied by the court can be col lected By what authority this has been done it would be well for the City Council as well as the bonds men of the City Treasurer and other city officials involved to investigater since in case of an adverse decision they would certainly be liable to refund the money to the city This money paid by the city tax payers for county purposes can only be expended for such purposes or returned to the taxpayers and when otherwise used somebody has violated the law and their trust and it is the duty of the City Council to 4 call them to account and see that the city funds are disposed of only t according to law Judge Gregory who presides over the County Fiscal Court has published in answer to criticisms i an explanation of the levy of the JudgeAGregorys explanation does not ex plain on the contrary it reveals f an astounding ignorance of law and a facts in a County Judge and Chair 5 man of a fiscal court He explains that the tax is not for 1899 butL k for 1900 and thus seeks to evade the charge of double taxation Does not judge Gregory know that under the law the taxes for any given year must be based on the assessment for that year levied and collected during that year and ex pended only on appropriations made that year The present 17 cents ttax is based on the assessment made as of January 1899 is levied and sought to be collected in 1899 f and is being appropriated and expended In 1899 and to cap the Judges discomfiture the tax notices sent out ythe Sheriff call- r I for State and county taxes for 1899 So if the tax is for 1900 it is wholly illegal since it is based on the wrong assessment levied charged up i and sought to be col lected by the Sheriff for and in 899 a year before it is due and is being appropriated and expended by the Fiscal Court without authority of law since the taxes for 1900 can only be appropriated and etf pended for that year c WR cannot believe Judge Gregory so iignorantpf the llaw aS hiex planation Would indicate but ruth err that ue seeks to sniobth over A blunder and covert injustice ip Cow8viile taxpayers and lift the 10totWU1cWiich the stupidity and prejudice 1- r x r F of his rural and partisan colleagues have placed it But such explana tions are not likely to earn him the title of LLD or the reputation for fair dealing so essential in pub lic servantsThis of affairs is only one of the many complications and injustices to the taxpayers resulting from the blind fanaticism insane prejudice and crank legislation of the Legislature which followed theories instead of facts tried to reduce taxes of the poor farmers by unjustly heaping them upon the rich cities and hnd for its slo ganClDn Louisville she ought to be made to pay all the taxes The result is the withdrawal of cap ital from business and the tax list its investment in other Steles con fusion loss and litigation empty county treasury and finally in creased taxes on the poor farmer vlio can not get away or evade taxes And Judge Gregory like many of our politicians seems to have lineup with farmers with the inevita ble resultBut the 17 cents tax It will not be paid without longand costly litigation if then j though upon a technical construction the tax levy may be upheld In that case th city must refund the county tax al ready levied and collected and cer tain city officials will be guilty off that for which they should be im peached If the tax levy is nott sustained by the courts the County Fiscal Court will have to refund any taxes paid make an additional levy to supply the deficiency and be liable to impeachment for unlaw fully levying and collecting taxes In either event the tax lists will b muddled and become the basis for litigation for years to come The best way is to avoid litiga tion Louisville taxpayers are al ready assessed and charged by the city and most of them have paid to the city the county taxes for 1899 The County Fiscal Court should accept from the city this tax for 1899 and cancel the i cents levy against all city taxpayers or the city should cancel the county taxfor 1899 from its tax list and refund the money to those wh have paid it There is no othei just solution Judge Gregorys ex planation to the contrary notwith standing It is now up to the city official and Council since the Fiscal Cour seems to stand pat and the Sheri has charged up and is notifying Louisville taxpayers to call and pay State and county taxes for 1899 including this 17 cents on the 100 for which they hold the citys re ceipt and which Judge Gregory says is for 1900 We dont advise any one to refuse to pay this double tax but suggest that they be in nc hurry about it In the meantime the blunderers may come together and straighten out their tangle in some way not so costly to the taxpayer There is little concerning

himintimately will prove u timely This remarkable man writes a correspondent was born October 10 1825 His parents were Boer farmers residing in Cape Colony too poor to sup ply Paul with shoes The future ruler of the South African republic had to trudge over the African veldt in his bare feet I He was christened S J Paul Kruger but the two initials were soon disused though President Kruger uses them in signing + State papers hear was unknown to Kruger from boyhood When he was in his seventeenth year his father asked him to take home his span of oxen and an empty wagon He was accompanied by his little sister Paul said his father take care of your sister I will he said simply In those days traveling in Cape Colony was anything but a picnic Wild animals were plentiful and many a traveler be came a prey to these beasts Everything went well until Paulwasl within about five tIMes from home Here a large panther made his appearance The oxen took fright and bolted The jostling of the wagon threw the little girl to the ground where she was at the mercy of the ferocious animal Without a moments hesitation young Kruger jumped from the wagon and ran to his sisters assistance The panther stood with gleaming eyes over the prostrate child Kruger was unarmed but without a moments hesitation he engaged the pan theriri a hand to hanil battle It was a fierce battle Time and again the angry beast clawed Kruger cruelly but his courage and strength never failed him Like a bulldog he held his grip upon the panthers throat until he strangled the beast to death Kruger was badly lacerated Blood flowed from many wounds but notwithstanding his injuries he car ried his fainting sister home This exploit made him the hero of the s sturdy Doers in that section It was the first indication of the latent powers that dwelt in the coming ruler of the Trans vaalFrom boyhood Kruger hated the Eng dish wi sh a hatred which has only increased with years His boast was that some day he would raise an army to fight the English When Kruger was young his people moved to the Orange Free State and later to the Transvaal The first time I met Paul Kruger was a at Pretoria in 1879 Though past fifty years of age he was a Hercules in phy sique standing over six feet in his stockings and strongly built without an ounce of superfluous flesh on his body He and Joubert were then arraying the Boers for the great struggle with England which I came in 1881 securing for the Boers the right of selfgovernment In those days Kruger was poor compared with his wealth of today He had a large family to which he was devotedly attachedWhen I met him over fifteen years S later although the President of the te public lie was as unassuming as in earlier t days He asked me to be his guest and in his parlor in Pretoria we talked of old days1R has aged considerably in the fifteen years lie stooped somewhat but the fire of youth gleamed in his eyes and age seemed unable to dim his ardor My conversation with him was carried on through his Secretary Oom Paul can speak English fluently but under no circumstances will he carry on a conver sation in that language This procedure a when in conference with British officials gives him an opportunity to collect his thoughts before replying He is an inveterate smoker and coffee drinker and is hardly ever seen at home without a long pipe in his mouth At his side is a large cuspidor which he uses freely The motto of President Kruger for years has been Patrick Henrys memora ble utterance Give me liberty or give me death This sentence translated into the Boer language hangs handsomely framed in his parlor This heroic Boer ruler is almost devoid of learning What education he has was hard to secure Yet he has baffled men oC learning by his sagacity His knowledge of human nature is wonderful Once in Johannesburg there was an elected Board of Health which was becoming daily more powerful The mem bers were mostly English among them being a Mr Holt who was ultraEnglish in his views This board was the only hopeof the British element for securing control of Johannesburg In November 1894 President Kruger heuedaniedktthattonly the Boer laic gage could

EENTRAL LABOR UNION 7 1- ii That the Kentucky Irish American is steadily growing in favor with its readers 0 and usefulness to the public is evidenced by the action of the Central Labor Union w- fc at a recent meeting in giving this paper its indorsement which is the more J- t welcome and appreciated because unsolicited and unexpected The publisher Js willQtOs adopted by the delegates of both bodies The preamble and resolutions adopted by 1iL the Central Labor Union are as follows t DV1 Whereas Many misstatements have recently appeared in the press of this N city relative to the Central Labor Union and organizations represented therein andt117 Whereas The Kentucky Irish American has always been a consistent and unbiased champion of the trades union movement therefore be it t Resolved That the Central Labor Union indorse said Kentucky Irish American 4 as the official newspaper of this body tfj i Resolved That the proceedings of this organization and all affiliated unions be J d communicated to the public through the columns of the aforesaid paper 3 IJW 22 a 2 2a2aa 2 21w which connects Pretoria with Delagoa bayIt was an inspiring scene when the Presidential train arrived at Bronkhorst Spruit As the old President stepped from his special car he was greeted by hundreds of Boer farmers In the dis tance could be seen the three grouped graves of the rear guard of the British Ninetysecond Regiment- In a few words Kruger exhorted the Boers to stand by their country never to give it up to a frreign foe As he made this appeal he turned his eyes toward the last resting place of the British soldiers He is decidedly partial to Americans and has not forgotten the time when a handful of Americans saved him from a British mob This took place in 1893 when Sir Henry Loch the Governor of Cape Colony and High Commissioner of Africa went to Pretoria to confer with Kruger concerning the command to Brit ish subjects to carry arms in the Boer armyThe Englishmen in Johannesburg ex cited over Lochs visit went to Pretoria in special trains When Loch arrived they took the horses out of his carriage and drew him in triumph to theCapitol Some overexcited ones took the horses out of President Kruger s carriage and started to mob him In an instant the old President was surrounded by twenty Americans with drawn revolvers They threatened to shoot the first man that attempted to lay hands on Kruger He has never forgotten that Kindness Before I left Pretoria President Kruger said to me through his Secretary When you go home to the United States tell the people there for me that there is a small nation here loving their country and their liberty that idolizes the American flag and the free institutions of the country May the United States ever prosper and remain true to the principles of her forefathers is my earnest wish It would please me very much ifa treaty could be made between the United States and the Transvaal Could I favor Ameri can commerce I would do so and I shall try all in my power to grant some con cessions The voice of the aged President quiv ered as he spoke and his eyes were moist He was certainly deeply moved- It is no wonder that the old Doers love their President His character is pure lIe is gentle as a babe but firm asa rock and a very lion when his country is in dangerThe fact that Oom Pauls chief adviser in his controversies with Milner and Chamberlain in the Transvaal is an Irish man named Farrelly and graduate of famous Trinity College appears to have aroused the Castle detectives in Dublin and those of Scotland Yard in London They suspect that Farrelly is a member of the Irish Revolutionary Brotherhood and that he was sent to the Transvaal to organize the Irish there and give what aid he could to the Boers whether in a diplomatic way or in the field in ease of warThe authorities however are watchful and more than suspicious that an effort for some time has been on foot not only to organize the Irish in the Transvaal who are by no means a small force but to send to them every aid possible and skilled military men from America Gen Joubert who is seldom heard of in the cablegrams is the man who man ages the fighting of the Boers in cases of emergency He is an American born in Uniontown Penn in 1841 He served in our navy under Admiral Dupont dur ing the civil war and afterward in the army He is a natural and beautiful fighter and gave the English their ra tions of war at Majnba Hill He believes that with an army of Boers and their Dutch friends in the Orange FreeState and Cape Colony the whole of South Africa can be retrieved from the British What the British claim is that the Transvaal Republic has not the right to restrict the franchise in this conservative fashion It would be to the British in terests says the Boston Advertiser if the ordinary British resident in the Transvaal shouldacquire full franchise privileges within A year or two after his arrival within the State It is conceded that if the change were made as the British residents so far outnumber those of any longbeforetbei turned over to the British Government as a new colony by the vote of its naturalized citizensThe Boers appreciate this fact as well as time Britishj and it is precisely on that account that they have restricted the Thequestiouhinges zens of any republic to make their own franchise

Constitution contains a similar provision excluding an alienborn citizen from be coming President of the United States but it is not hard to imagine what would come to pass if the British Government

LABOR WORLD Notes and Gossip of the Week From All Parts of the Country Pckin Ill has a newly organized iron molders union The painters and brickmakers have formed unions in Peoria Ill The tinners whose union was knocked by the hard times several years ago are reorganizing over the country Notice reducing wages in the struct ural department of the Cambria Steel Company Johnstown Pa 70 to 80 per cent is likely to cause a strike The men earn what seem excessive wages but the work is sobeavy and exhaustive that they can not work steadily only about one third time Time Toronto Typographical Union has been conceded an advance in wages averaging 10 per cent Increases apply on all kinds of work piece and time day and night Negotiation has been carried on fpr some time past between the Em ploying Printers Association and the Typographical Union and the printers are to be congratulated on the satisfactory and peaceful outcome It is estimated that the increase will mean 30000 a year in wages to the Toronto printers New York Typographical Union No 0 at its last meeting finally decided to un OctoIberbeen secured and provision made for an outlay of 55000 The exposition will be thoroughly uptodate in every way It is expected that all typesetting machines on the market will be on exhibi tion as well as all branches of the print ing arts and industries This event is to mark Big Sixs fiftieth anniversary Colorados Supreme Court decided that the eighthour day law passed at the last session of the State Legislature applying to the men working in the great ore smelters was unconstitutional Time de cision simply declares the law unconsti tutional without assigning any reason and seems a burlesque in view of the fact that Colorados law was framed after the Utah law on the same lines and which was declared coostitutional by the Su preme Court of the United States in Feb ruary 1898 The Lincoln Neb State Journal Com Taphagen cal Union represented by W C Boyer of Omaha signed an agreement that makes the Evening News the Morning Journal and the big job room of the com pany unionized throughout The settle ment provides that the Journal Company will hereafter run a union office and the same shall be regulated by the laws of the International Typographical Union and the Lincoln union that the nine hour law will go into effect November 21 that the present scale of No 209 shall prevail that chapels shall be in the job and news rooms andorganizedI union shall admit the men now employed by the company The agreement permits Beacham nonunion to remain foreman of the Journal The Evening News has a full union force Fifteen nonunion men were taken inII Two men Jett and Bartley refused cards The office will support an average of sixty men the year round BRITISH LABOR NOTES There are deepseated disturbances in the Lancashire cotton district The weavers have got their advance of about I 2K per cent and now the spinners are after a 10 percent Increase which would bring up their wages to the old level r where they stood before time rates were 1 cut down I G1gthef l world hardett to move go 8on rspidlyl I r1 i i I tYf The depopulation of the rural districts has at last reached a point where the sup ply of labor for farm and general agri cultural work is greatly below the de mand There is even trouble to get milkers for the cows Consequently the country laborer has gained a new belief in his own value and he is demanding n higher price Wherever farmers fore gather there you will hear lamentations about the price of labor One of the more recent instances of the agitation conies from Yorkshire where agricultural laborer leave successfully demanded an in crease in wages of 10 per cent together with a reduction in hours ofwork I There was a time when the farm hands in England were welded into half a score of powerful unions In those days Joseph Arch was touring the country and rous ing enthusiasm to fever pitch Now Arch is an old man weak and 111and all the organizations have petered out aided in that by years of agricultural depression Remnants exist here and there but too insignificant for description The Workers Union is making an attempt to organize this section of labor in some parts of the country and with fair success four branches of the union having been opened recently in purely agricultural districttsTalking of the Workers Union reminds me that its founder Tom Mann has re tired from active work in the labor move ment He is the son of mining parents and was born in Warwickshire in 18oO He worked on a farm for a couple of years after hewas nine years old and then went down a nine working there and on the pit bank till he was fourteen After this he was apprenticed to the en gineering trade and upon the expiration of his time came to London He worked here at his trade with firms like Thorny crofts and others and joined his trade society In 1885 he became a member of the Social Democratic Federation the Englishannex of the international So cialistic movement He has stood for Parliament three times and piled up huge totals of votes but never quite enough independentlabor founding the International Federation of Ship Dock and Riverside Workers now known as the International Federation of Transport Workers He founded the Workers Union in May 1898 Nearly every advance and reform movement of the last twenty years has had his support and cordial sympathy As an orator he has few equals his words burning into the hearts of his audience as only sincerity and truth can Dark and strong of feature and figure he is one of the most forceful personalities in the labor move ment of today Notwithstanding his re tirement from active work the unions with which he is connebted will still have him as honorary adviser England Secretary the dockers has taken in 2000 new members Tillett is an excit ing an enthusiastic organizer despite his illhealth The agitation among the railway ser vants has grown great since Secretary Richard Bells return from America The Liverpoolhavemum programme which demands twelve cents an hour eight hours a day and six days a week They also urge upon the legislature the necessity of proceeding at once with the railway regulation bill and more especially the special feature of it which has reference to the compul couplingsConsiderable that section of mine workers
