But such explanations are not likely to earn him the title of LL.D., or the reputation for fair dealing so essential in public servants. This condition 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 upou the rich (?) cities, and had for its slo ROBS CITY TAXPAYERS. The notices for State and county taxes are being received by property owners and are provoking surprise, indignation and. curses. The in crease of about 40 per cent., or " from 52 to 69 cents on the$ioo is not due to an increase of the State tax rate, which is the same cents, but to as heretofore, 52 the fact that the county tax of 17 cents on the $100 is added by the County Fiscal Court, because, they allege, the Court of Appeals has decided that iu future the county tax must be levied and collected by the Sheriff. As to the hereafter the Fiscal Court may be light, 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 the benefit of the rural taxpay ers. But that aside for the pres ent. The tax of 17 cents levied by 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 pay county expenses till the 17 cents 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 investigate, since, in case of an adverse decis ion, 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 call them to account and see that the city funds are disposed of only according to law. Judge Gregory, who presides over the County Fiscal Court, has published, in answer to criticisms, an explanation of the levy of the county tax of 17 cents, but Judge Gregory's explanation does not ex plain; on the contrary, it reveals an astounding ignorance of law and facts in a County Judge and Chair man of a fiscal court. He explains that the tax is not for 1899, but 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 expended only on appropriations made The present 17 cents tax is based on the assessment made as of January, 1899, is levied and sought to be collected in 1899, and is being appropriated and expended in 1899, and to cap the the tax Judge's discomfiture, notices sent out by the Sheriff call 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 and sought to be collected by the Sheriff for and in 1899, 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 expended for that year. Wecan.not believe Judge Gregory so ignorant of the law, as his would indicate, but rath--ethat, he seeks to smooth over a blunder and covert injustice to Xouisville: taxpayers and lift the that year? r, ,county out. of: the deep, - hole. ,into which the stupidity and- prejudice, The pastor of Limavady, the Very Rev. Edward O'Brien, bring ing his classical learning to bear upon the documents in which St. Patrick tells his own story, starts a new theory in The Irish Ecclesiastical Record. He contends that the claim as to Scotland is based upon the misrepresentations, and even the manglings, of the scholiasts, and that the natural reading of the documents points to Spain as the place where the saint first saw the light. St. Patrick was born in Emporia, he maintains, or at least was dwelling there when he was made captive. Emporia is on the Clyde (the Clodeanus), and on the Gulf of Rosas (Rhoda), a gulf of the Thyrenne (Torrean) Sea, the Mare Inferum of the Romans, as opposed to the Adriatic, the Mare Superum.

The result is the withdrawal of cap ital from business aud the tax list, its investment in other Stctes, confusion, loss and litigation, empty county treasury, and finally in creased taxes on the poor farmer who can not get away or evade taxes. And Judge Gregory, like many of our politicians, seems to have lined up with farmers, with the inevita ble result. But to the 17 cents tax. It will costly not be paid without long-anlitigation, if thep; though upon a technical construction the tax levy mav be upheld. In that case the city must refund the county tax al ready levied and collected, aud cer tain city officials will be guilty of that for which they should be impeached. If the tax levy is not 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 be 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 17 ceutsjlevy against all city taxpayers; or the city should cancel the county tax for 1899 from its tax list and refund the money to those who have paid it.. There is no other just solution, Judge Gregory's ex planation to the contrary notwith standing. It is now up to the city officials and Council, since the Fiscal Court seems to stand pat and the Sheriff 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 city's receipt, and which Judge Gregory says is for 1900. We don't advise any one to refuse to pay this double tax, but suggest that they be in no hurry about it. In the meantime the blunderers may come together and straighten out their tangle in some way not so costly to the tax.. payer. gan "D n d 'bolt" is a "fizzle," but when it is led by such men as John Brown of Louisville, Hon.

Extensive preparations are being made, under the direction of the Rev. P. Doyle, for the forthcoming great bazar and fete, "Iberion," to be held in Wexford onj September 3 and 4. The bazar, which has been organized in aid of St. Ibcrius' Catholic Club, promises to be one of the most notable affairs of the kind held in Wexford for a long time. Generous sub scriptions have been received from all the prominent citizens of Wexford, and prizes of an elaborate and costly nature have come in from many quarters. A project of considerable general in terest, and of the first importance to a very extensive area of country in North Tipperary, lying partly in the Birr and partly in the Borrisokauc Unions, was approved of at the Borrisokauc District Council meeting, on the motion of Mr. Meara, seconded by Hon. Cosby G. Trench. The scheme provides for the complete drainage of no fewer than thirty-seve- n townlands by sinking all the rivers and streams that feed the Lough Derg section of the Shannon between Ballyquirk and Clohaskin in one direc tion and from Carrigahorig to Loughna-hinc- li in another. Many thousands of acres of what must be very valuable land will thus be reclaimed in a quick and effective manner. Some rare and interesting discoveries have been made in Lough Dcrg. As a number of men were engaged dragging a portion of the lake adjoining Terryglass, four or five miles from this town, for the remains of a man who had been drowned, the search party happened on a lot of peculiarly interesting curiosities, among them being the splendid head of an old Irish elk in a fine state of preservation, with enormous antlers, the tips of which are eleven feet apart. The teeth are three inches long and when scraped show dif ferent colors, resembling black enamel, shades of gold, etc. Many other marvels of ancient times were also brought to the surface. Sergeant Cornish and Constable Teehan, of the Carrigahorig Police Sta tion, hooked a gigantic and beautifully made ell net, said to have been brought from England many years ago and lost in Lough Berg under strange circumstances. The other discoveries included a well preserved dugout boat or canoe, supposed to be of great antiquity. The Irish bank reports strengthen the presumption created by the previously published reports that Irish business has turned the corner for a time. Following upon n total increase of ,153,000 the de posits shown by the Bank of Ireland and the Minister, the National Bank returns the big increase of ,312,000, making nearly half n million for these banks alone. Moreover, note circulation, which had been going down steadily for years, is booming again. The National Bank notes are "05,000 up, the Provincial ,27,000, and as the Bank of Ireland reports "an increase of ,63,000, we have nearly ,150,000 more notes in circula tion from the three banks. The National's net profits are nearly ,4,000 higher, and out of its Increased deposits it has added nearly a quarter of a million to its divi dend earning advances to customers. It holds, moreover, ,165,000 more cash y than it did a year ago. At the meeting of the Bank of Ireland the Governor, Charles E. Martin, made a statement showing that the position of affairs was satisfactory, and a dividend of 6 per cent, for the past six months, 12 per cent. for the year, was declared. John Houlihan, of Tinakelly, was evict ed from his holding by his landlord, William Kennedy Marshall, D. L., J. P.t of Baronne Court. The Sheriff's officer was accompanied by a large force of police, as it was anticipated that there would be resistance. Their expectations were in this respect somewhat confirmed when they found the house securely barricaded and the usual preparations made for withstanding a siege. Head Con stable McBryne, of Borrisokane, how ever, exercised his good offices as me diator, and on secunng an assurance that the evicted tenant would be reinstated as caretaker and get time to redeem, Houli han undertook to give up peaceable pos session. With his wife and six little children he was put out and put back as Houlihan owed two years' caretaker. rent. He bought at .500 the interest of the former tenant, Guy L'Estrange, four teen years ago. Then he borrowed ,325 from the Board of Works. This he spent on buildings. Unfortunately a few bad years crippled him, loss of stock and failure of the. barley crop effecting this, The value of his interest in the farm now is "1.300. and this will be sacrificed if he does not find himself able to redeem.

The man who repairs watched never complains of working a little overtime There is reason to' believe that the members of the Irish Hierarchy will hold n national synod in Ireland during the jubilee year 1900. Heavy rains in Ireland have damaged the potatoes, hay and corn, and the cool temperature is seriously retarding the ripening of all crops. The Dublin Nation announces that the Pope has appointed Cardinal. Logue, Primate of Ireland, Apostolic delegate to Ireland for the purpose of presiding at the National Synod of Irish Bishops to be held in 1900. The assizes were opened in Galway on July 20, when Chief Justice O'Brien enThe High tered the town court-housSheriff presented the Judge with white gloves, as there was not a single criminal case on the calendar. The great Cahirmee horse fair was held on July 12, 13 and 14, and was well attended by Irish, English and foreign buyers. Horses fit for cavalry and artillery service were in special demand, a significant symptom of the "pacific" aspect of the times. The largest bog in Ireland is the Bog of Allan, which stretches across the center of the island, east of the Shannon, mid covers nearly 25,000 acres. Altogether there are nearly 3,000,000 acres of bog in Ireland that is to say about one seventh of the total acres of the country is bog. At an important and representative meeting of citizens held in the municipal building, Cork, on July 28, it was decided to perpetuate the memory of the late Thomas Crosbie by a suitable and lasting memorial, and a subscription list for the purpose was opened aud was liberally subscribed to by those present. On July 21 a terrific thunderstorm broke over Kilrush and vicinity, accompanied by heavy rain. The glass was shattered at the Convent of Mercy aud in other buildings and slates were sent flying from the roofs of stores. A cow grazing in the fields near John street was killed by the electric fluid, but otherwise no serious accident occurred. His Grace Most Rev. P. J. Ryan, D. D., Archbishop of Philadelphia, arrived in Thurles on July 21 from Carrick-on-Suito visit his native place. He was received at the railway station by the Rev. J. J. Ryan, V. P., St. Patrick's Col- lege. In the absence of the Archbishop of Cashel, his Grace of Philadelphia was the guest of the faculty of the college. A largely attended meeting of priests was held in Ballaghaderin at the close of the retreat and passed resolutions strong ly favoring the United Irish League and supporting the policy of the Congested District Board, as evidenced in the pur chase of the Dillon estate. The priests decided to start a fund in support of the league and subsenbed a generous amount on the spot. The Catholic reformatory ship, Clar ence, was destroyed by fire at Liverpool. Intense excitement prevailed until it be came known that hundreds of lads and officers on board the Clarence had been saved. The Captain and Bishop Whiteside, who spent the night on board the Clarence, lost their personal effects. This was the second Catholic reformatory ship of the same name that burned on the Mersey river. On the night of July 15 a terrible acci dent took place on the Great Northern k railway, a short distance from the Station, by which a young man was killed. The remains were discovered by a porter engaged on the line who was going home about 3 o'clock on Sunday morning and were subsequently identified as those of Joseph Hearn, a tailor, who had been employed in Foster's, in Hill street, Newry. A meeting convened by the Lord Mayor was held at the Mansion House, Dublin, recently, to inaugurate a fund for the erection of a statue of Charles Stewart Parnell. The members of the '98 Century Committee opposed the erection of the statue as inopportune and likely to jeopardize the plans for the Wolfe Tone memorial. After a stormy session resolutions in favor of the erec tion of the Parnell statue were adopted. At the Kilkenny special assizes the brothers Neary, accused in connection' with the Ballydowel murder, were fully acquitted by the verdict of the jury. Judge O'Brien discharged the prisoners, there being no other charge against them. When they emerged from, the court-hous- e the Nearys received an immense ovation through Parliament street and Irishtown. The barristers, together with numerous spectators, lined the balcony of the court house. On the morning of July 21 a terrific thunderstorm was expenenced in Tralee, which lasted over an hour. Buildings vibrated and trees were struck down by the current. Edward Morris, the Bride well keeper, aged eighty years, was standing at the door wlien the first ter rific thunderclap burst over the place, He fell, was removed unconscious, and expired in a few minutes. His death is attributed to shock. His sister was with him at the time. Several landlords in the West of Mayo have already signified their intention of selling their grazing lauds to the Gov errment. The Earl of Lucan has dis posed of some of his best farms and is about arranging for almost the entire disposal of others in aud around Castle bar. James Faulkner, J. P.. has fallen into line with other landlords, sold his estate to the Congested Districts Board and allowed his tenants, who owed from five to six years' rent, clear xeceipts.
