the South American Shipping Once a Power in Politics Turned lily Talents to Business and Is Successful A Poor Irish Lad Who Came to This Country Alone When But Fourteen MAYOR OF NEW YORK FOR TWO TERMS Henry Irving Dodge contributes to Success a very interesting story of the wonderful career of a poor Irish boy now know to fame as William R Grace ex Mayor of New York nod one of the greatest business men of America Mr Dodge says Today the ships of W R Grace and Company are known all over the globe They do the greater part of the carrying r trade between the United States and the west coast ot South America The dis tance covered by one of the firms steam ers on a regular scheduled round voyage is equal to the girth of the world The complete revolution of what might be called the American trade is due to the brain and daring of this remarkable man I sayclarimig because many of the enterprises in which he has engaged were dazzling in their financial magnitude and involved the exercise of almost incredible courage But it is a charactersitic of Mr Grace that nothing is too big for him to undertake so long as he has faith in it and his faith is not lightly won Results of immeasurable consequence to the whole commercial world have been attained by a man who fiftythree years ago landed in New York without money and friends and who at that time little dreamed that he would be twice Mayor of the leading city of the Western Hemisphere although even then his ambitions seem to have been almost Napoleonic Some men acv quire large fortunes in extremely narrow channels and are little known and of 1 little benefit to the world at large no- Illy to acqUIre wealth but to he a great broad influence in the commercial world He has won bath and today is the most influential figure in the commerce between the two American continents Mr Grace is sixtyseven years old and comes of a highly respectable Queens County Ireland family His father lost a part of his fortune in Venezuela d ring the early part of this century and so the lad like many American boys while of firstclass antecedents started with an empty purse As a boy Mr Grace was very ambitions and ran away from home when ouly tourtcen He came over here and knocked about for awhile doing any thing he could He recollects at one time during his first stay in the United States hoarding with a shoemaker work ing for a printer and in fact turning his hand to anything that was reputable and at all remunerative The possibilities of a serious career did not weigh very heavily upon him at that time bui he was greatly impressed with the oppor tunities that were offered to a young man who was willing to grasp them After a stay of a few years young Grace returned to the old country and through the financial aid of his sister he went to Callao Peru An incident that happened within a few days after his arrival in Peru perhaps helped a great deal to form his principles There was an argument in progress one evening between some American and English sailors Sailors arguments at that time were a great deal as they are today that is they usu ally wound up with fisticuffs The Americans seemed to be getting the worst of it and Grace pitched in and helped them with the result they carried the day But when he got to his room that night he made up his mind firmly that it was not to mix in sailors brawls that he had come to Peru nor to waste his time as he saw the majority of the foreign residents doing and this he says formed one of the principles he has always followed since that is that stick toitiveness or industry and strict attention to the main object in life what ever that may be would bring success Almost anybody who followed these principles in Peru at the time he went there so he says would have been Tine cessful because were nu merous and it needed only a man who could catch an opportunity quickly dis pose of it and be on the lookout all the time for others young Grace reached Peru he obtained a clerkship in a ship ping house of fair standing and within a short time became a member of the firm and later secured control of it From this house the finnof Grace Broth ers and Company finally grew

Concepcion Tile firm has always occupied a very promi nent part in the business of these coun tries Following his principle of keeping abreast of the times Mr Grace had his business incoporated few years ago that there might be no question of its continuityMr was an early believer in the possibilities of long voyage steamer trade and established the pioneer direct steam service from the United States to the west coast of South America Mr Grace is a natural organizer He is interested in a great many enterprises to each of which he devotes a portion of his time He is the President pf time In gersoll Sergeant Drill Company a con cern which has been foremost in the ap plication of compressed air He also or ganized and is the Chairman of the Nic aragua Canal Syndicate a bodof New York capitalists which obtained a con cession for the construction of the canal at a time when European efforts in that direction seemed probable and thus saved the waterway to the Vnited States Mr Grace is a trustee of the New York Life Insurance Company of the Ter minal Warehouse Company the Central and South American Telegraph Com pany and is a director of the London Bank and the City Trust Company He is also President of the Sevilla Home for ChildrenIn years Mr Grace has relieved himself to some extent from the manage ment of his vast business interests and has found time to devote his abilities to a practical philanthropic purpose lie and his brother Michael P Grace estab lished Grace Institute in memory of their father and mother and in gratitude to New Yorkthe scene of their early start for success The object of the Institute is to furnish instruction in the domestic arts and sciences and in the trades and occupations in which women may be employed and to afford protection instruction and assistance to young women Five hundred graduates of the Institute are put in the way annually of earning an honest living In it is taught all the duties of a home in the broadest sense of ttime 9d7cooking laundry work sew illgfriilwlieasu kin and litiltvnog raphy and typewriting Like most successful men Mr Grace has a vivid appreciation ofa bright and suggestive thought whatsoever the source lIe relates in this connection an incident of his youthful career in Peru which tended to improve his knowledge of human nature He had just entered into a contract of partner ship when a big Irishman named Jack McCarthy respected and welltodo who had seen Grace and liked him said to him Here Grace F have been watching you ever since you came here and I think you are of the right sort Now I have taken n lease of this store next to the postoffice and Ill put in a business there thirty thousand dollars cash against your brains II Of course being pledged in another di rection he could not do anything with McCarthy but he recommended a friend with whom both were acquainted Mc Carthys reply was so full of pith that it has always remained with Mr Grace The man he spoke of was a very bright fellow whom he knew very well of very good education and spotless character His Irish friend listened to his plea for this young man and then rendering his decision in the sentence Och hes all used up with education he made a description of the man which fitted ex actly and the soundness of which Mr Grace always remembered- It is almost needless to remind the reader that Mr Grace was elected Mayor of New York in 1880 and again in 1884 serving two terms which were noted for their strength vigor and fearlessness o GILLIGAN Would Like to Start a Labor Paper

of the Central Labor Union last Sunday His plan is said to be to hold up can didates and corporations claiming an immense circulation and then distribute a number of free copies He would of course have no subscription list worth speaking of He asked the indorsement of the Central Labor Union but as union men want pay for their work and pay for what they get his cheeky proposal was laid on the

his Holiness the Pope is deeply concerned about the war in the Philippines He has communicated his anxiety to the- Re Father Reamey chaplain of the Olmypia In the plainest possible term Leo expressed strong desire to see peace established between the United States and the natives and said that he contemplated the opening of negotiations with the United States Government with a view to regulating

special iiudi5iiceacoifed tthet l Plhijj8t Deweys flagship There is little doubt that the conferring of this unusual honor upon Father Reamey was prompted by the Pontiffs desire to inquire closely into the affairs of the Philippines Ills Holiness asked many questions about Admiral Dewey his personality his opinions and inquired sympatheti cally about the state of his health At the conclusion of the interview he gave Father Reamey an autograph letter for delivery to the Admiral and made the priest the bearer of his benediction to the crew of the Olympia BUCKINGHAM ATTRACTION A programme of

CAUSE FOR REJOICING Next Monday Labor Day now generally observed in this country the toilers will have their annual outing The Central Labor Union will vary the montonous street parade and garden

families The United Trades and Labor Assembly will mold their first picnic at Phoeuix Hill But all will observe time holiday Merchants and employers have come to rev spect the day and enter heartily into its observance as an evidence of appreciation of the workmen and their cause which is being more fully understood and the benefits of their associations manifested not only in elevating time status improving the condition and advancing the interests of labor but con tributing to the peace and welfare of the community as well Organized labor is no longer regarded as a menace to order property or cur ployer but is proving a boon to this country as the preserver of order and the barrier to the anarchistic theories which threaten property and employer Dur ing the period of depression of time past seven years few besides themselves know what the workmen have suffered but they have borne it patiently and peacefully making concessions and submitting even to injustice rather than resort to disor der accepting less pay and longer hours entailingselfydeiitalI l all because their organizations after careful investigation assured them that business conditions prevented employers from doing better In many cases in volving millions of capital and thousands of workmen agreements were entered into and to the credit of both employer and employe they have been generally faithfully observed insuring peaceful confidence and interest the result of which has been manifested throughout the country the present year With a general resumption of trade slowly but steadily labor after years of depression has not been hasty or un reasonable in seeking a betterment but has pursued a quiet and orderly course and where met in like spirit by employ ers matters have been speedily and amicably adjusted So quietly has this been done throughout the country that it is hardly credible to the casual observer that more than a million additional laborers have been employed in the past few mouths and wages generally and universally advanced Arid this without serious disturbance in any of the great manufacturing industries railways trans portation or mines except as in the case of the Brooklyn and Cleveland street railways and the Illinois miners where the employers by refusing td recognize that labor has any rights and declining every offer of conciliatory settlement left no alternative but a strike and by defying the law brought about disorder and bloodshed For this organized labor is not responsible since it was ignored its pleas spurned its very life sought to be crushed out- Organized labor lIjas proven that it alone can teach the workman his rights J how to protect them recognize the em ployers interests seek justice by peace ful methods and control and restrain labor to observe the law more effectively than by force Labor has enjoyed a peaceful year is beginning to reap prosperity with the future brighter and has cause for rejoicing Y r NOT SOLD YET

SEPTEMBER 2 18991 THE FATE OF DREYFUS The heart of all the American people regardless of politics or re- ligionJ throbs with pity and beats high with indignation at the treat ment accorded the prisoner of Devils Island Very few persons in this country had a doubt about his innocence at his first trial but with all the testimony and revelations that have come to light since a wave of pity is sweeping over the landTo one who has looked at the course of the case with impartial eyes it seems almost impossible t that the whole French nation should T have clamored for his conviction While there is a great revulsion now in his favor there are still many adherents of the army who D believe army honor should be sustained no matter whit the cost or who the victim Even the Judges are unsympathetic and clearly against Dreyfus and this feeling is frequently shown during the trial But with the facts star ing them in the face it would seem almost impossible to convict The testimony of M Bertillon on which the prosecution principally relied was thoroughly disprovenand over thrownIt astonishing to American s that witnesses should be allowed in addition to giving their testi many to iterate and reiterate I am positive he is guilty Drey fus is the guilt man there can bie no doubt of it there is the guilty persotIltld not be reproved by the court I The fourth week of the trial is now on and the end is not in sight The wanton and unprovoked shoot seniorccounsel for the defense seems to have made a telling point in Drey r fus favor M Laboris enforced absence has made stronger if possi ble his conduct of the case and he has scored many a point for Drey fus and confuted many a witness It is expected that even if the former sentence of the courtmartial is not reversed Dreyfus will not be returned to Isle Diable but will be pardoned by the President of France NOW DONE FOR The check system by which employes pre paid wages in checks good only at stores of the employer i that

fully organized in affiliation with Jl national organization They have no petitions or grievances pending with the street railway company and until they have organized labor would do well to mind its own busi ness The street railway employes know their business and what they want and until they ask the aid of organized labor it is impertinent unjust and likely injurious to them for others to interfere in their af fairs Most certainly they should be consulted before the business of their employer is attacked and no legitimate labor organization will do so But the dontputyour

summer wanderers are straggling back singly or in groups The shops are busier and the counters and shelves are piled high with new goods This is to be a distinctly crepon season said the head of the department in one of the largest dry goods stores and the good that have been forwarded would seem to bear out his statement There is in black no prettier goods than the crepon brought in this fall and they make the richest and most charming of gowns One black gown seems almost a necessity in every womans wardrobe and ther is certainly nothing that is richer or handsomer or lends itself to more charm ing effects than does this favorite goods In the colored goods plaids seem to b preeminent in all the new and beautiful shades and combinations Some of thes- are so strikingly beautiful that the eye iis captivated at once nI IBut the tailormade gown is not fb be despised It still reigns supreme for street wear and it will be a long time before it is superseded Its utility and good taste have long been recognized and it would worry the brains of the in ventors of womens fashions to introduc something that would become as popular There is something very chic and strik ing about a well groomed girl iu a tailor gown Its appropriateness for street andshopping is acknowledged and it convenience giving warmth without be ing bundlesome universally known S the tailormade girl will be with us fo awhile yet Perfect selfpossession under tryinj circumstances is something to be desired It is at times hard to restrain the risibles and to keep the muscles of the face unde perfect control One of the most striking instances of this was seen at a popular mountain resort this summer A Presby terian minister of Texas who was visit ing relatives in the neighborhood was invited to hold services on a certain Sun day morn in the hotel parlor He con sented to do so and at the appointed time the guests all assembled A very religious maiden lady volunteered her Bible for the minister to use A table was made to do the service of a desk andstanding in front of it the minister gave out the hymn which was sung by the audience The minister Mr H is ia- very finelooking man and the audience composed principally of ladies were very much interested and eagerly listening for the sermon Mr H picked up the Bible to read his text and his fingers inadvert aptly caught the table cover and shook it when out dropped a deck of cards scattering over the floor An audible titterr went round the room but not a muscle of Mr IIs face moved nor did he change color but calmly went on as thoughb nothing had happened The cards hat been left under the table cover by some Saturday night players but the owne of the bible was distressed to death fearing Mr 11 might imagine there was some connection between Bible and cards At a fashionable boarding house at dinner one hot day in summer one of the boardersa young man who has run the gamut of life but who on account of hU small features aud rather

American Who Favors Alliance Russia Encourages American Trade While England Opposes It THE AFRICAN IN THE WOODPILE When you ask an English statesman why the people of the United States should favor an alliance of any kind with Great Britain he will tell you that once united the two nations can dictate to the rest of the world says James Creelman I in the New York Journal But I have i yet to find a serious and wellinformed American citizen who desires to support this scheme of international dictator ship British statesmen have said to me again and again that the American flag PhilippineIslands Chinese Empire is at hand and it is AngloSaxonAsia and in joint control of the Nicara gua canal shall be in a position to insist that the great markets of the far East shall not be closed to the commerce of the world This of course is based upon the assumed idea that the United States does not intend to apply the high protective tariff system to the ports of the Philippine archipelago and that Great Britain is to be an equal partner or at least a special partner iin the control of the Nicaragua canal Certainly if Con gress applies the McKinley tariff or any tariff of the same general nature to the Philippine islands and if the United States adheres to Mr Blaines and Mr Frelinghuysens official declaration that the ClaytonBulwedreaty is extinct in solar as iU relates to the

driving British manufacturers even out of marI kets covered by the British flag Mean while the great Russian railway system running six thousand miles east andwest and two thousand miles north andsouth will be in operation within two or three years and this will control the carrying trade of Northern China and India while the magnificent merchant marine fleets of France and Germany together with the Russian volunteer naval reserve fleet and the rapidly increasing merchant fleet of Japan are breaking down Great Britains control of the carrying trade in the South I can myself testify as the result of recent experience that both the German and the French steamers plying between Europe and Asia are superior in every respect to the vessels of the once all controlling Peninsular Oriental line that freight is more care fully handled and that passengers are treatedwith less atrogance and harsh ness On the British steamer which car ried me to France from Hong Kong I readingbookssheet of

Manila In other words this bank pays you printsinaccept it except at the place of issue without charging a heavy rate of ex change sometimes amounting to two or three per cent The whole British commercial and financial system in Asia is rotten and out of date Whatever American commerce and industry may achieve in Asia with or without the Philippines must be ac complished in spite of and not

American newspapers or merchants to use the cable although he permitted this British bank to cable an account of the fighting to its agents at Hong Kong and the American public got its first news that the American flag had been fired upon through the courtesy of the British bank manager in Hong Kong Of course it is easy to see the profitable advantage which this official favoritism gave to a British firm as against the nonfavored American firms This Incident is not in itself important except as an illustration of the British point of view in the Philip pines Whatever we are to do in the Philippines or elsewhere in Asia we may be sure of one thing that British inter ests and American interests British methods and American methods are radi cally different- In the early days of our war with Spain I talked with John Hay at his London residence almost every afternoon I know that he was then vigorously opposed to an alliance with Great Britain He was also opposed to any joint AngloAmerican naval or other demonstration in Asia al though he admitted that tHere might be instances in which the pressure of similar interests might warrant simultaneous rather than joint action by Great Britain and the United States In a long ex perience with American diplomatic offi cers in London I must frankly acknowl edge that John Hay is the only one I have known who was not sooner or later mesmerized by British influence He was at all times a modest dignified sen sible American I predict that so long as he is permitted to have a potent share in the determination of our foreign policy the AngloSaxon alliance idea will not advance beyond the afterdinner speech stage NARROW ESCAPE A girl named Maggie Ann Madden re siding with her parents at 29 Henry street Portadown had a very

enterprises There was a large at tendance every division in Jefferson county being well represented One of the matters of importance before the board for consideration was the Elks fall industrial exposition and street fair which will be held from October 9 to 21 It was voted to lend all the assistance possible to make the undertaking a grand success the Secretary being instructed to communicate that fact to the General Committee It was also decided to refer the proposition to take part in the carni val parade to the different divisions to be acted upon this month and this will probably result in adding a body of at least 1000 men to that feature of the cele brationMany of the members favored the plan to secure sufficient space for the purpose of conducting an Irish village such as that at the Worlds Fair where life and industries as they exist in Ireland would be exhibited This would prove a great attraction and thousands would doubtless come to Louisville to visit it

temperature has been torrid enough on the third floor of the hostelry to compel the unconscious woman to walk around attired in natures own qweet gatb The tpyewriter on the second floor is asked to

strength and unity And link the Gael in friendships chain and Christian chairty In evil days when Ireland sank immersed in penal gloom It rose the messenger of hope from out the nations tomb Stood strong as granite battlement around the stricken Gael And scourged full oft in breach and field the bloodhounds of the pale It held aloft the torch of faith and morals in the land And guarded well the hunted priest when Erins creed was bannd The magic tongue ofbard and chief theI golden Celtic lore It snatched from out oblivions grave toI life for evermore It clasps the exile to its breast beneath whatever sky Relieves the widow in distress and dries the orphans eye The poor the friendless and the sick receive its tender care And for its dead ascends to God its daily fervent prayer Ere spoke the guns of Lexington across the sea it came The foeman heard on Bunker Hill and trembled at its name On field and flood Columbia I wherever thundered Mars To glory fame and victory it bore the Stripes and Stars And in the future as in the past twill battle in the van For justice right and liberty for ever creed and clan As faithful guard the starry flag on its adoptul straud As ever did its
