here in Catholic circles has caused as much sor row and sympathy as that of Miss Nellie ODonnell a notice of which appeared in this paper last week Mrs Ellen OConnell the aged wife of Michael OConnell died Monday night week at her home in Croppers She had been an invalid for several years Besides her husband several children survive her Funeral services were conducted at the church by Father Fitzgerald and the interment was in Grove HilUjemetery The Colonel and several lady friends went on a days outing to Torrent and Natural Bridge quite recently They had a splendid time and every one seemed to enjoy themselves immensely The Colonel says the place resembles the Hills of Connemaravery nice to look at but not to live in By the way it seems that he is just now the busiest man in town that with air blast stoves and other kinds of blastings the Colonel seems to beget ting things on the move Ohl the times Politics politics poli tics Nothing in the air but Brown Taylor and Goebel Men have neglected their farms to talk about the nominees This tendency has at last overcome some of our public men and finally Judge Beard Squire Goodman Councilman Dubourg and a few chosen witnesses

was tried a few days ago Those who know the genial Squire have reason to question the nature of this case in particularHon Young Brown spoke in Lay son Hall last Saturday to a large intelli gent and enthusiastic audience Speak ing with the eloquence of younger days his speech was received with the greatest applause So far this was easily the most representative political gathering that has yet taken place in this town Goebel seems to lead in the race however We are delighted to learn that the Elks Carnival will have an IrishAmerican day Well the Shan Van will be there with her best ribbons and newest style fall bonnet provided she can induce Capt Pemberton or OLeary to accom pany her to the city as she is rather timid traveling alone Circuit Court is in session here this week and many

The Triduum preparatory to the solemn 4 4consecration of the parish to the Sacred Heart closed on Sunday night with im pressive ceremonies Father Fitzgerald preached a splendid sermon and read the act of consecration Every family in the congregation was represented and the attendance at all the seryices was very gratifying and most consoling in results Mr John Cotter has a magnificent house to let

pastor the past week Hon G G Gilbert our Congressman took occasion Tuesday afternoon during a recess of the court in response to fre quent calls from the crowd to deliver a speech for Goebel and the

erring brothers to their right places ia the Democratic ranks Mn Mi L Dubourg returned recently from a visit to friends end rotativee in Nwpoet During the CokmdV recent visit to Nstuesl1iId ebe and

from what seemed inevitable destruction in the famed and far away mountains We stood in wrapt amazement and extreme nervous tension held our breath as the two heroes worked with entire unselfish ness in their noble efforts to prevent sad ness and sorrow in the homes of our city Mr Dubourg backed by Capt Pember ton Engineer OLeary and Squire Good man intends to introduce a resolution in the City Council calling for a unanimous vote of thanks for the great work per formed and the heroic services rendered by which our citizens were not obliged to meet a funeral train instead of the happy company that left our city on the ever memorable occasion All hail to the heroesIn sylvan retreat during the season of oppressive heat we were able to recuper ate our lost energies and had all hopes of complete restoration but were unfor tunately retarded by the sickly letters of him who dared to usurp our place to use our name by the strange metamorphosis of Charley Lewis Garret Lee Will Cal tenbacher and Dennis Ryan the colored Goebel evangelists too who invadedour town to teach colored Democracy to the unfortunate citizens left without our spir ited assistance and the efforts of our pen Add to all this the quoted poetry of him of Frankfort who once loved us with the love of the Midwayhere today and away tomorrowand who tells us that the fair has at last aroused the custodians of the States stables to a full sense of their importance Oh in the name of all towns and things along the Kentucky river D JM ring off and save us from poetry and Midway in this life and we may have some

Candidate For Lieu tenant Governor Mr John Marshall candidate for Lieu tenant Governor on the Republican ticket though still a young man who has been content to quietly practice his profession instead of seeking prominence or office has attained high rank as a lawyer and is popular with all irrespective of politics as attested by the office seeking the man the only times he has consented o be a candidate in 1897 and in this cam paign Mr Marshall was born in this city in 185G and received his education in our public schools counting among his life long friends most of his school mates He studied law and was admitted to the bar in 1679 remaining with John Mason Brown for five years In 1885 he formed a partnership with the late George Lochre an able young Irishman and the two young attorneys made their mark in the courts ln sgveral important casrank lUg tiara V1Ul OiStlawyers an e Kentucky bar In 1891 the firm became Gibson Marshall Lochre and conS tinned till the death of Lochre in 1894 Mr Marshall though regarded as one of our ablest attorneys and universallyI popular has never sought been repeatedly urged by his friends but only twice has he consented In 1897 he was the Republican nominee for Judge of the Law and Equity Court against the popular Judge Sterling B Toney and though the ticket was handicapped with several obnoxious candidates Marshall led his ticket by several thousand votes and carried the city by 150 being de feated by only a few hundred votes in the total vote of the county His large vote then against Judge Toney fully at tests Mr Marshalls reputation with the people irrespective of politics His nomination for Lieutenant Governor on the Republican State ticket was likewise unsolicited and unanimously tendered He is a thorough gentleman able lawyer firm in his convictions but liberal in his views whose name isa tower of strength on any ticket Mr Marshall is making an active canvass but it is clean and honorable as becomes the man it is not his nature to resort to the schemes billingsgate and vituperation too common in political campaigns THIS IS SILLY Chicago Chewing Gum Man Offered Sure Seat by the Irish Party From London comes

IRISII AMERICAN 326 West Green Street LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 23 1899 TYPOTHETAE RETROGRESSIVE The United Typothetae an asso ciation of employing printers has taken a step backward A year ago it agreed to recognize and co operate with the International Typographical Union in establishing uniform hours and equitable wages with the result that much was accomplished without friction or trouble At the meeting last week a motion to authorize the Executive Committee to confer with the Ex ecutive Council of the Int rna tional Typographical Union tio further the interests of the print ing craft and arbitrate all differ ences that may arise was defeated after a long and acrimonious dis cession Later the Typothetai resolved to not recognize hereafte the Typograpical Union or any labor organization Well so much worse for the Typothetae One would think that the Typothetae had learned something by its experience in de parting from its orginal purpose of protecting and advancing the print ing art and devoting ten years tio trying to crush labor unions ain experience detrimental to employe and employe alike and demoralizin g and ruinous to the craft as a whole This idea was certainly indicated by their conciliatory action last year We hope the last move of the Typothetae is not a preliminary t the renewal of the strife with labo unions but if it is much as tin labor unions will regret it they wit1 surely flghtfor their right to brga nize for protection and bettermen and a voice in regard to hours wages regulations and all that affects them as employes while fully conceding the employer hi just control and rights as such The Typot1u tae if it renews the issue will we think soon realize that things have changed in ten yeqrs that their refusal to allow employes to organize for protection and advancement while exercising that right themselves is more re pugnant to the popular sense of fair r play than it used to be that the American people do Toot approve of the foreign idea of master and man which some of our employers seem intent on imitating and establishing in this country that the American workmen will resist it now as ever contending for his full rights as a man and citizen and fully conceding the same right to his employer that arbitrariness in an employer is as repulsive as vio lence in an employe that labor unions by intelligent conservatism have gained the good will of the people and the settlement of labo- differences by conference and arbitration which the Typothetae rejected meets with almost universal approval The Republicans nominated a fairly good ticket at their convention last Monday but it ought to have been better as they have plenty of firstclass material Some i of the candidates will not only run far behind but will prove a dead weight to the ticket which only proves that the Republicans tike some other politicians dont seem to learn by experience viz an element that has run behind and lost votes to the ticket in every electron for years should be relegated to the rearThe Jews who certainly felt c alone than others could feel sorrow U and indignation over the Dreyfus ease conducted themselves in a commendable manner everywhereV in striking contrast to the suddenly Bytopathedc audtrlotle rdut era who got up ineetinga declaimed 4 and protested One feature of these meetings was the Jews ignored them having too much sense to be gulled into seconding the move off notoriety seekers too much self respect to indulge in bluster and vituperation too much knowledge of public affairs and the proprieties i of international courtesy to con demn or denounce a nation and government for the acts of a court and finally the Jews well knew that the most active of their professedI friends in this matter have only hatred for them The rebuke offf these ranters by the Jews thoughI silent was emphatic The law to furnish free school books to pupils of the public school whose parents are too poor to pay for them is all right and no reason able person will object to it HuttI good laws are often rendered so odious by abuse as to cause their repeal The free school book law was never intended to furnish schoolbooks 1I to children of people owning derivfrent as it is reported has been done at one of the West End schools causing much comment not at allI complimentary to the free schoolI book law or the management of our public schools Whoever is responsible for such favoritism has violated the law misapplied public funds encouraged imposition andI should be made an example of Charity funds are a sacred trust for those in need only The B ers respectfullybut firmly demandstand insist on the strict observance of the treaty of 1884 which EnglandI is seeking to evade The withstI the question and will doubtless pre pare another ultimatum which ought to be labeled positively the last II as they are becoming some what monotonous and giving rise ttoI the belief that there is too much bluster for much fight But England will persist till she aggravates the Boers to break the peace or until she can find a scapegoat of whom to put the blame for her failure to beguile or bully Oom Paul into giving her what she wants The Transvaal question is getting to be a bore Some employers in this country would like to have labor mattersi run like they are across the water- Mill employes iin the Dundee Scotland district organized unionsi and presented to the masters pe titions for a small advance ofwages The masters II who are organized petitionsrand to crush the employes unions have closed down all their mills throwing 35000 out of work Bu this is the United States whichI fact some of our employers fail ttoI realize especially in labor matters Some people do things just ttoI show their animus The Typothetae after deciding to ignore and oppose Typographical Union resolved not to use the union llabel As the union label is the property of the Typographical Union the Typothe tae will hardly violate the last resolve If they should they willI doubtless be made to understand that they must not use the unio labelCapt Dreyfus has been pardonedr as every one who understood the verdictand recommendation of the courtmartial could but expectr since the recommendation practi rally nullified the Mutemot course the patriots C who fret protested and resoiuted will stick a feather in their hats add boast certaitheiu f them Ii The arbitrariness of mine owners in Illinois who rather than meet their employes for conference and settlement of differences imported negroes to work in the mines has caused riots resulting in twenty eight deaths and fiftyeight badly wounded disorder bordering on anarchy menacing life and property and suspending business in several I counties costing the State thou sands of dollars for troops and the end is not yet Either the imported negroes or the resident white min ers will have to leave before there can be any permanent peece and all of this because of the bullhead edness of about six individuals Sometimes it seems there is a little too much individual liberty in this country SUNSET SCENES Observed from a Ship on the North Coast of the

along the north coast of Ireland The gray clouds that had been hanging over us for days gave place to sunshine that lent a greater charm to the sea andi the dark distant hills The haze surrounding the far awaj Scottish mountains and hills changedd from gray to blue while the nearer hills and ragged rocks of Ireland were into bolder relief by the soft light Tin air grew warm and soft Everybody gathered on the decks to watch tin changing outlines of the rocks lulls and passedIthe Giants Causeway strange Iy fluted pillars of basaltic rock Strangie thee waves for centuries and for centuries tine rains have beaten down on those colej brown rocks Seasons have come and1 gone people have lived and died ship passed and repassed some of them never to return lint the great columns of rock1 still stand grim silent and unchanged Prom the Giants Causeway it is butt fourteen miles across the channel to the Mull of Kintyre on the coast of Scotland wce thanIwe passer between the mainland and the Island ofp Rathlin where for a time Robert roc found shelter This little island is ren dered beautiful only by the surrounding- sea the white surt beating always againsl its granite sides and green verdure covering its rocky surface Over on the mainland was spread a farreaching picture of beauty the distant hillsides checkered with the fields of ripening grain the stnokhcurling upward from the chimnies of the group of tiny cottages so lazily sleeping- at the foot of the hills Here and there a little cottage stood in some sheltered nook among the rocks near the sea or found lodgment high up on the side ol the hills Regretfully we left so fair a scene to go down to the evening dinner But on coming up again all regret van fished on beholding the glorious effect off the setting sun Behind one of the dock hills the sun had dropped into the sea leaving a sheet of burnished gold as a background for the dark hills Across the gold was spread a zigzag cloud of overt head a large line of white clouds +ver drifting across the blue sky And as the sfloated slowly on these delicate were edged with highest gold untill gradually some unseen hand laid fine tracings of gold all over the snowy mass and off against the horizon beyond the white and gold and blue could be seen the tall masts of coming or going ships one or two but a speck against the distant iky The golden light grew dim and melted into changing colors of pink blue and faint shades of copper gray and amethyst The hills and rocky shores grew darker under the changing lights off the growing sky To the eastward faintt touches of pink and gold blue and red streaked the soft gray of the evening and1 touched the waters of the bay with a rosy glow A little boat with all sails set was gliding toward the Scottish shore where a little village lay set round by hills and rocks and craggy points of land and1 tinte shore was a long line of white sand A sleeping mist was closing rouud the Fast receding hills The silence of the night was brokenonly by the sounds our own ship The gold in the west ha faded intopalest rose The taU masts o the invisible ships still lay against the clouds and beyond those strange ships those rosy t10udstthose distant purplel shadows is country friends love and the shining sun while round us nothing but strange silent shores clouds mist and sea and unknown ships sailing away into the shadows of the nightt NARROW ESCAPE On Tuesday Francis MqIenamin pro narn rowly escaped being drowned at Bun darn and had it not been for the courage and bravery of Richard Mahoney he would never have

Employers for Causing Strikes and Labor Troubles Employer and Employe Busi ness Partners With Mu tual Interests SHOULD CONFER AND ARBITRATE Hon W Bourke Cockran the Irish American orator from New York in his address before the Trust conference in Chicago last week frequently referred to labor its relation to employers its importance as a factor in public affairs commended American workmen for their intelligent and conservative course in protecting and bettering their condition while condemning the arbitrariness of employers who refused to confer with labor to adjust differences Such words from Mr Cockran carry their full merit as the utterance of one of the most elo quent learned students and observers of public matters honest and courageous enough to express his views impartially and fearlessly We give the following extractsI the country is to be congratu lated on some of the papers which were contributed to this discussion notably those that came from the representatives of the labor organizations Indeed as I listened to the conceptions of economic law which marked every address to which I listened delivered by representatives of organized labor I became convinced that the laborers who spoke to us understood these laws much better than their employers indeed I believe that some re cent events in our history would have been impossible if both sides of these labor controversies understood the eco nomic laws governing the relation of pro ducers to consumers as well as one side slowed that it understood them this very day I was greatly impressed by the statement of Mr Gompers recognizimg the fact that the movement of industry has steadily been toward a higher rate of wages It is very agreeable tome to con cur in that statement and to say as one of the most hopeful signs of our future prosperity that the movement of wages is upward and must be upward because there are two forces working in that di rection But here I desire to say what perhaps may sound strange to some of you and mayperhaps shock a great many of those wfap approve what I have said before Here we come to the question with trade unions and their effect on trades industry Labor unions do not affect the rate of wages much if at all I think perhaps I am the first person who tins advanced that proposition And yet they are of enormous benefit to the whole body of the olnnlUnlt quite as much to the employers as toth laborers and it is to their protection and in their develop ment as I hope to show you before I conclude that we must find and hope for that industr of peace which means great industrial prosperity to which this repub lic is destined I believe to affect the in dustrial cost and conditions in the whole world If you will bear with me for a moment and consider the law governing wages you will find that the one thing which affects the rate in laborers wages is the volume of his product and no agreement between him and his employer can enable the employer to pay more for the value of his product You will sec in this sense that itjs impossible to main lain for a moment the idea so generally felt that wages tire a species of alms that good employers pay high wagea and bad employers pay poor wages There are two laws working on wages which fix its standard one is competition between laborers for employment which operates to depreciate wages the other Is to competition between capital and capi tal for profit which operates to raise the rate of wages You will see yourself if I am making chairs and if I am getting my labor for less than it is worth the results prottsbutthechair waking industry capital will give competition and the resultant condii ooaspetitionfocthe gray to prevent ttw employer front bank ruptcy from a failure to obtain labor will c be that he must raise wages Now the competition between capital and capital is keener than between laborer and la borer though we dont know it I have endeavored to follow the history of every strike in this country I confess the great difficulty about them is to locate their origin When they commence the air is full of clubs and missiles I believe however that a close study and careful examination will satisfy everybody that the great strikes of this country have arisen from the refusal of the employers to discuss the questions at issue between them and their employes with the agents that the employes select They have un dertaken to declare various excuses that they were notspeaktng to men outside of their employment or they would not speak to their then in a body or they would talk to tiiem singly and they would do one thing and another except what they were asked to do Now concede lor argument that it maybe foolish for men to join trades unions to employ walking delegates to organize- for their protection What difference can i it make to their employers so longas they are free to fix the rate of wages to the laborer Nothing could compel him to pay more than the conditions of his- trade would allow him to pay and that being so what difference would it make I whether he delegated that duty to one person or to another so long as he was free to fix his own conclusions- I know of no sign on the horizon so por tentous or so ominous as the strike The strike attacks us not without but it cor rodes us from within as the cancer that corrodes our vitals This one danger springs from the very prosperity which we enjoy and when we analyze its causes we find in every Instance that it has been a case of had temper and bad manners rather than an irreconcilable set of diffi cu ltiesINow I have not mentioned this merely for the purpose of railing at it but for the purpose again of suggesting a remedy We have heard it said that compulsory arbitration is the correct method of avert ing these strikes Compulsory arbitration may possibly become an fact in the years to conic accomplishedI remote remedy It would take many long years before compulsory arbitration could take such a definite shape as to allow of its being enforced We have several strikes on these systems and I do not know ot one that arose directly over the question of wages In every in stance petty disputes which might easi Jly have been adjusted by a little forbear ance on both sides were fanned into violent flame b r discharging men who came to remonstrate by the refusal to talk to unions by the feeling upon the part of the employer that in some wayor other there would be a debasement and an indignity in treating his laborer as his partner rather than his servant Now I do not appear here for any change in the relationship between employer and em ploye That is fixed by eternal laws which all of us together could neither disturb nor modify We have seen that the rate of wages is fixed by the vol ume of the product and nothing can change it We have seen that since the employer and employe must share pros perity from the same causes and adversity from the same conditions their relation is a partnership and can not llie changed The employer may discharge his em ploye that is to say he may change his partners but when he takes on others the partnership is renewed and it is stiHal cooperative concern its nature can pot be changed That has been fixed by the eternal laws of God and the universe My attention has been called to the re lationship between employer and em ploye Let me say one word about that It is a grievous disappointment to me that this conference has wasted so much time over what I can not help call fanciful conditions over conditions on whose ex istence we are not agreed and turn their backs and leave absolutely without at tention the greatest peril to civilization with which civilized man must dealI refer to the relation between employers and employes I refer to the conditions under which every cooperative industry must be maintained You ask me what the functions of the labor unions are I tell you it is to pro mote that closer relationship and that quicker distribution I believe when the time cornea that1 the employers realize to themselves that they are hut captains of industry that they are but part of the machinery of production that they are rgtkeenctfgiesolotherabccltUie great norefruitful and brings larger1 rewards to each that they will be glad to welcome the trades union as a means of free and simple interchange of opinion beiw ieu their partners and themselves The CUOM e wrerproducUou is not the inherent dMteuJty in the diet ibbatioB be carte you win And that while the strike d 1 is raging on one system of railroad an other system which gives no higher wages and exacts no longer hours is in the throes of a bloody contest It can not be then the inherent difficulty of the dis tribution but it is the difference in the characters of those charged with its ad ministration If employers and employes would both realize and I believe from the papers that were read here that the employes do that the volume of wages is regulated by fixed laws that it can not be more and it can not he less than it is worth but employer must insist upon his employes joining the union for the pur pose of facilitating discussion between them They can not change the laws that govern their relationship but they can discover what these laws are They TheyIsaved from wrangling disorder and riot and confusion would be expended in production and in improving the condition of every human being throughout the countryIt earnest hope and it is my firm belief that as years go by the very minute that employers realize that they would insist on their employes organizing them selves for the mere purpose of facilitating intercourse between them and it is not a Utopian dream that before another conference of this character assembles the largest employers of labor will insist upon their employes joining unions and choosing representation in them realiz ing that it is a joint industry and that the man who works is just as valuable as the man who directs his work I was in hopes that we would discuss industrial disturbances and that we might at least get this far while we are still a short distance from the socialistic basis while there is difficulty about interfering in the industry of private citi zens that we may provide that corpora tions exercising great public franchises should be held to some accountability when the convenience of the public is suspended by the suspension of their services to them When the railroad company is not acting when the gas productI StateIof every citizen who is disturbed by that cessation to demand compensation Now that much might be passed by the concurrence of every person in this confer ence When that is passed I believe the beneficent results that would follow from it would make strikes in this country im possibleIt be adopting a new system it would only be compelling the recalcitrant railroad corporations the ignorant be nighted management who will be in the minority to assent to the opinion adopted today by a magnificent majority I be lieve that there are many laws now in existence to which we would say Godspeed dating from today I dont ask the State to prescribe any conditions to a settlement Let it be a complete defense for tit railroad to say Ve have met these men by agencies of their own choosing and we have discussed this question with them Let that be a com plete defense and I tell you that then you will have accomplished a solution of the question because there can not be a strike between an employer and employe if tfce discussion between them over wages or hours is conducted in the spirit of the houfUrged here by Mr Garland and Mr Gompers from this platform SEE THE CONQUERING HERO COMES VERY LOW
