Renaissance of Interest in the Storied Spot The Abode of Kings The Great Feis and Its Object Corrine Mac Arts Mighty Banquet Hall Quarrel Responsible for Cessation of the National Assemblies I TRADITION CONCERNING ST PATRICK The recent excavations carried on at Tara fruitless though they were for reasons which shall be touched on later have awakened popular interest in time traditions which attach to that storied spot Most of us have no further knowledge of what Tarn was than can be gleaned from Moores exquisite lament over its departed glories For the benefit of the readers of the Visitor we have tried to gather into a connected story the many references concerning the navel of Ireland contained in Douglas Hydes recently published History of Irish Lit eratureIt Corumc Mac Art the most striking figure among the pagan kings of Ire landwho built the palaces on Tara Hill This hill was till St Ruadhan of Lothera Solemnlycursed it the sceue of the great Pais or assembly of the men of all Ire land Every three years during the reigns of one hundred and thirtysix pagan and six Christian kings the chiefs princes and bards of Erin met together on this most august spot in the whole land to promulgate laws universally binding upon the country to test purge and sanction the annals of the kingdom in the presence of all men so that nothing untrue might creep in and finally to register the same in the great national record styled in later days the Saltair of daybeforeended on the third after it To accommodate the dignitaries who came to the greatallfjlmbly Cormac Mac Arlreared lirmighty hall Tile accounts we have of this building and ofall the other buildings at Tara were written nine hun dred years ago when the spot had been abandoned for four centuries The great hall was used at once for a house of as sleepingby the ancient authorities have been veri fied in every particular by the officers of the Ordnance Survey The length of Cormacs Hall was seven hundred and sixty feet and its breadth was nearly ninety There was a double row of Benches on each side running the entire length of the interior which would give four rows of men if we remember that the guests were allseated on the same side of the tables and which if we allow three feet to each sitter would accommo date just a thousand men In the middle of the hall running down all the way be tween the benches was a row of fires and just above each fire a spit on which joints of beef were roasted was rus peuded from the roof The High King sat at the southern end of the room Each of the assembled worthies was at tended by his own proper shieldbearer Along the side walls there was placed a beam in which were fixed numerous hooks destined to support the shields so that at the banquet all the lords and captains sate each beneath his own shield The banqueting hall and all the other great buildings at Tara were of wood Nor is the absence of stone building in Itself a proof of low civilization since in a country like Ireland abounding in timber wood could be made to answer every purpose as in point of fact it does at this day over the great part of the United States and in all northern countries f where forests are numerous Down to the Danish invasion nearly all Irish buildings were constructed wood or of wood and clay C9mbined or of clay and unmortared stones and the strongholds were of wooden palisades planted upon clay earthworks This is the reason why so few remains of prehistoric Irish buildings have survived but it is no reason fori banquehallv produced It seems to have been con structed of the timbers of lofty trees planted side by side probably carved iin fantastic designs on the outside whit the inside walls were covered with a plaster spread over a network of slender rods The plaster when even and dry was painted in bright colors chiefly red yellow and blue The roof was formed of smooth joists and crossbeams and wa probably thatched with rods and rushe- much in the same manner as the cottages of the peasantry are today The floors were of earth beaten and hardened and then covered with a coat of sonic kind o hard and shiny mortar There were as I many an seven raths orII forts around the royal hill of Tara each containing matiy houses The rath was in most 1 eased protected by a wall of stakes plantedi around Its summit The finest house of angd planted in the sunniest spot was reserved for the ladies It iit interesting to note that the ladles were never admitted to refeCtoryJf1 n r J 0 ately served so that perhaps there is more fancy than truth in Moores lines brightTimeThe last Fein of Tara was held in 554 according to the I Four Masters lint why it was the last they do not say Tradition has it that the quarrel between King Diarrnuid and St Ruadhan is re sponsible for the cessation of the national assemblies The Bishop and his clerks circled the hill of Tara ringing their bells against it Diarinuid returned curse for curse and stood his ground but under his successor as is probable the palace was deserted forever The aboli tion of the Feis was a blow from which the monarchy of Ireland never recov- eyeda blow which by putting an end to the periodical conventions of the Irish race weakened the prestige of the High King increased the power of the provincial chiefs segregated the clans from one another and proved a new source of faction and dissension throughout the landOne of the most beautiful traditions connected with Tara is that which de scribes St Patrick preaching in the palace on Easter Sunday of 433 beforet- ime King and his nobles and discon certing the Magi or fire worshippers Correspondence Providence Visitor CAUSED DEEP SORROW Unexpected Death at Shelby yule Caused by Heart Failure The little town of Shelbyville was startled last week by the unexpected news that Miss Nellie ODonnell the daughter of the late James ODonnell and one of the brightest and most popu lar young girls of that city hind died suddenly at her home on Friday last of heart failure Miss ODonnell had been in excellent health and the day previous was out attending to her social duties She was of a most amiable and lovable disposition shedding brightness all around her and all who came in contact with her were cheered by her sunny smile or hearty contagious laugh The funeral services were held Sunday morn ing at

virtues and also warned his listeners to be always ready for the Jast summons ilprweknoiv not theJay nor the hour After the services the re mains followed by many sorrowing friend were borne to the train and brought to Louisville In addition to those who came from Shelbyville a large concourse of Louisville friends met the sad cortege and escorted it to St Louis cemetery where the burial took place on Sunday afternoon There among the sobs of heartbroken relatives and weeping friends was placed all that was mortal off Nellie ODonnell to lie there until that last trumpet shall sound which shall sum mon all to the august presence of their Maker PRETTY IRISH CHURCH James Furey Aiding In the Erection of a New Edi fice In Galway Mr James Furey residing on West Oak street has received front

these hustling bustling days clearness of enunciation and direct ness of speech are absolutely neces sary to the wellbeing and comfort of the community at large So many of both sexes especially among the young speak in such a rapid manner they do not have time to pronounce distinctly and in con I sequence they slur their words orII drop the last syllable and make a perfect jumble of what was intended to be a pretty speech More attention should be given in the schools to distinct pronuncia tion for it is a decided advantage in business and the opposite is a decided nuisance in society as well In commercial life how many tine is one called to the phone only to find at the other end some one whom it is almost impossible to understand and who perceiving what is wrong makes matters worse by raising his voice until those near him think he is trying to awaken deadA well modulated voice is a perpetual joy to its owner and a constant pleasure to its listeners- In singing it is even worse than speaking Frequently a really fine song rendered by a singer of taste with an excellent voice is marred simply because the words are a jumble of sounds In this connec tion it was noted at the music festi val last spring one of the artists in responding to an encore sang a sim ple little love song but it was ren dered doubly pleasing by his enun ciating every word so distinctly that it could be heard in all parts of the houseTo have a nation of clearspoken people the education must begin with the children and this should not be confined to the schoolroom However much the teachers may labor and exert themselves their efforts will meet with failure unless they are supplemented at home by the parents COUNTY DOUBLE TAX That the people of Louisville are being doubly taxed for county pur poses this year no one except the County Fiscal Court possibly will deny As we intimated the ques tion has got into court as it is not likely that people who paid a tax inI January would willingly pay the same tax again in September S O Newman real estate agent has sued the city to stop further pay ment by the city of county expenses and to compel the city to refund to the taxpayers all taxes for county purposes collected by the city for the years 1896 1897 1898 and 1899 claiming that under the re cent decision of the Court of Ap peals the levy and collection of such taxes by the city were illegaland as taxes can only be expended for the purpose for which they were levied the money must be refunded by the city to the taxpayers The amount named in Mr Newmans suit is nominal being the sum paidl by him to the city in taxes county purposes for four yetrs but the issue involves all the taxes for county purposes paid to the city for four years aggregating about 300 000 About 270000 of this has been paid out by the city for county purposes If Mr Newman wins his suit the county will be burdened with this deficit for if the city has to refund to the taxpayers it is the citys only recourse to compel the county to refund it Thus do the Khttaae of the rural statesman to Hequalizel taxes tothejj poor1 farmer by heaping them on the cities and towns complicate public affairs atlas litigation and finally react t on the poor farmer In view of this double levy of county taxes there is a disposition principally among small property holders to refuse to pay the seven teen cents levy of the County Fiscal Court This is the wrong course to pursue as large property holders who can afford to consult attorneys know since it can only result in penalties costs and litigation The proper course is to pay the tax preserve the receipt together with city tax receipts for the past four years and await the result of the suit as to the validity of the tax If the tax is sustained you save trouble and expense if not it must be re funded and the tax receipts are necessary to substantiate the claim for taxes wrongfully paid and or dered refunded MILITARISM VS SYMPATHY Military discipline is an iron rule recognizing no extenuation pallia lion or mercy absolute stern callous inflexible yielding nothing and when this is exemplified by courtmartial the civilian is horror stricken moved to pity for the vic tim and indignation against his judges but unless the higher authority disapproves the finding or mitigates the sentence of the court martial its decree is carried out for military discipline must be main tained This is true in every coun tryin civilized nations the forms of law and trial are observed and the accused given a chance to es tablish his innocence among bar barians the accused is summarily executed Military discipline un like the civil law places the burden of proof on the accused to disprove the charges doubts indiscretion intent extenuations all of which in a civil trial are favorable to the accused have no bearing in a court martial which rarely acquits and when it does its verdict is some times the forerunner of another courtmartial for the accuser whose charges must have been proven ut terly groundless or absolutely false A courtmartial can not return a compromise verdict or acquit be cause of doubt extenuation or any other ground than proof and if the accused be guilty even in the slight est degree the court can only so de cide fix the penalty and make such recommendations to the superior of ficers as they deem proper and it rests with the higher power to re view the case consider excluded testimony extenuating circum stances and pleas of the accused and either approve the verdict and sentence wholly or in part modify or set it aside This is the mode of procedure in the United States and most of the European countries Of course everyone sympathizes with the accused who has to pass such an ordeal and if the verdict be against him the sympathy is manifest and indignation outspoken as was observed in regard to the Drey fus case in the past week Everyone sympathizes with the man and his family even those who approver the verdict and the court which convicted l him as attested by their rec ommendation that in view of ex tenuating circumstances he be not degratedlrom his rank whichprac tically means a pardon since ac solt dier is never punished as a felon being always first degraded and ex pelled from the army before the execution of the punishment in such cases Though in the published testimony there was nothing to prove guilt neither did the defense refute all the charges and no one but the court kuows the nature of wr the sMJcret evidence presented yet when viewed ia the rigid light of military dlrcipiiUIrwhich dream u 4 scribed the court as well as the actt cused and under the charge the maximum penalty was death the verdict of the court backed by its recommendation is really a victory for the accused since he is found only technically guiltya victim of circumstances his own indiscretion and carelessness in the discharge of important secret duty the scapegoat of the really guiltyan acquittal in a civil court where criminal intent and overt act must be proven to eSe f tablish guilt To ignorance or a disregard of these facts connected with the Drey fus case is due the violent denuncia tion of the French Government and people and the ridiculous resolutions and petitions favoring the severing of friendly relations with France withdrawing exhibits from and boycotting the Paris Worlds exposition next year Nothing of this kind is likely lo occur since the French Govern ment and people are no more de serving of rebuke for the wrong done by the Dreyfus courtmartial than are the English people for the unjust sentences of their courts in numerous wellknown cases or Ger many for the Von Arnim court martial finding or the United States for the Fitzjohu Porter case and the hanging of Mrs Surratt by court martialbesides the French Gov intent has not yet approved the Dreyfus verdict Undoubtedly when Congress meets members with a view to bettering their chances or embarrassing the administration in the election next year will seek lo insult the French Government by proposing some such motion but it is incredible that Congress regard less of the ideas of the members on the Dreyfus ease will be guilty of such action since it would not in jure France and only bring re proach on the United States who would likewise bethe only loser by not participating in the worlds ex position The American people who intended tlo go to the exposition will go and those who are unable to get there will now have a con venient excuse for staying at home While the expressions of sympa 1thy for Dreyfus and criticisms of the court and his accusers are un I doubtedly sincere it is worthy ofr 1note however that too many of I those who favor rebuking France in behalf of humanity and jjustice regardless of nationality and religion etC are the same who invariably bob up into public notice on every occasion to get their names finI print get off their speech and sub side till next time that despite their earnest protests in the Drey fus matter they are reputed to hate the Irish dislike the French have no love for the Jews and are patriotically striving to ostracise and pro scribe their fellowcitizens for no other reason than nationality an religion which probably accounts for the fact that at all such red hot meetings the Jews were con spicuous by their absence Then the notoriety seeker takes advantage of all such opportunities even though in rebuking injustice he resort to it like the crank in1 Chicago who to show his disap proval of the Dreyfus verdict dis charged all Frenchmen in his em ploy or the Indianapolis patriot who burned a French flag in the street or the Kansas City Captain who challenges Esterhazy to a duel to the death and the enthusiasts who are trying to raise a purse to defray tine expenses of his trip to England where he will doubtless be put in jail on arrival and given a chance to play the martyr patriot And so on ad libitem But this is a free country and a man has the right to protest and resolute and threaten as he pleases so long as he does not hurtanybody or disturb the peace In the meantime the Drey fus case will be finally disposed of without regard to the fireworks the average American will go on about his business with no fears of a war with France and go to the Paris exposition if he has the price and the humanity and justice patriots will have to look out for something else to vent their sympathy and in dignalion upon- Cottle and eel tu about year job printing ca 0 06- t A VOICE You
