a result of his effort the Government endowed the Congested Districts Board with an additional capital of 250000 and an annual increase in the income of 100000 for the care of these districts There is a movement for a greater Dub lin which owes its existence largely to the efforts of Lord Mayor Tallon There are 250000 people within the present municipal boundaries and 80000 in the surrounding

hiiAgalrst h noden tttjtkll Citizens One Harry Burnett who has heretofore figured and been fined in the Police Court has been recently struck with a spasm of political virtue and that he might attract some attention has sworn out a number of warrants causing the arrest of innocent citizens taking tbeml from their work and jeopardising their situationsIt he who swore out warrants charging John J Keane Mike Connolly and Arthur Shoemaker with aiding and abetting false registration The trial was set for Thursday and when Burnett was placed on the stand he testified under oath that Connolly and Shoemaker were not guilty as charged in his affidavit which places him in the position of a perjurer and it seems strauge that Judge McGee did not at once place him behind barsHe caused the arrest of James OToole and John Huckeby and the trials of Joint J Keane mud John Con naughton were postponed to Friday noon Those who heard his testimony are con vinced of the innocence of John Keane and the others and the probabilities are that Burnett will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for his dastardly attempt to smirch the characters of men whom he is not fit to mingle with He may again land in the Police Court in quite a different attitude IRISH MUSIC AND SONG The Gaelic Society of New York City will give an elaborate concert of Irish music and song at Lenox Lyceum next Tuesday evening The programme will illustrate the history and development of Irish music by giving one of the most typical of each of the different periods and classes of minstrelsy of the Gael This is the first attempt either in Ireland or America to arrange a really representative festival of this character The famous Irish operatic baritone William Ludwig has come specially from Ireland to sing at the concert and one of the chief features of the occasion will be the singing of the StarSpangled Banner in Gaelic by Mr Ludwig and the chorus ExChief Justice Joseph F Daly will preside and a number

ttLocatiopswilateyertlteyuioy- have been I am back and I thank God for it and indeed would not return there for any amount of money I saw the islands and know what they are We were battling but not for glory Our soldiers are fighting against a people who mean to do battle as long as one of them lives or until the United States sends troops enough to sweep the islands front end to end and remove those who think it is a crime for a man not to protect hint self aud believe the present state of affairs iu the islands is nothing more than a war by the capitalists for the capitalists of the United States We are losing lots of the young man hood of America in those islands through disease and sickness more than in fight tug the insurgents Things in the Phil ippines arc not as they should be Those who have charge of the army of occupa tion I think should be under the care of a few trained nurses for they are too young and childish to be let run loose around Manila or else ought to be con fined in some school for children as they have exhibited childish warp more than once in the censored far East Upon my arrival home I was informed by several of my friends that they had sent me some copies of your paper of which I received only one I was told by numbers of men while crossing the peaceful Pacific mem bers of the Fourteenth and Twentythird Infantry that many of their papers never reached them The opinion expressed by all the men on the ship was that the socalled com mander of th American army in Manila is no good In Manila when one asked what Otis was doing the answer was to the effect that he was in the quarters surrounded by a big guard to keep the insurgents off while he was warming his feet which was not necessary as the anytimewarm It is not my desire to ridicule uiy superior officers and now that I am a free man again which I was not in the army I will only say that which I can back up with the day and date and hour and minute and what I say they can not deny United States soldiers going to shapefrontthe infantry were not fed as In a modern war Canned roast beef and canned tomatoes seemed to be the only foodwe could get and when we got them they made almost everybody sick and many was the prayer uttered for the human who invented canned beef I think it would not have been healthy for him to have shown up amongus for there would surely be some more rotten beef ready for canning- As regards the islands I do not see of what benefit in the world they are to the United States as the people can be of no good to usThose islands may be rich in gold1 and minerals but they are inferior to anything I ever saw The gold is of low grade whicbiis made into rings by the natives and sold for a song There iis a rainy season which lasts for a overtbej performed outpost duty the water was at times waist deep I dont think a white wan could live there three years and be ie any good after com ig back from that placeWe brought over fl great big monkey

Red Cross Society sent a lot of stuff to lie boat to be loaded marked for enlisted men only but the enlisted men never saw it any more after it went below in the hold The officers could feed like kings while we were like dogs in a pound waiting to be shot front which you can form tin opinion of how the men fared i1 I hope and trust I will never have to go through the same experience again and I dont think that a tan who dies out there without priest or minister would be condemned by God to punishment forever for that man has seen his hellon this side of the earth etween bulldozing officers who got their bottles to empty and arc very often flushed for you could see the color of health in their face and an impediment in thlir speech for the time being j In conclusion I do not wish to be too severe not that I am flow afraid to speak but there is one thing I would like to mention and that iis that the United States should send sonic doctors to the Philippines who know their business and not a lot of horsejloctors who do not know or do not wan to know anything about a human being There is one in particular whom I would like to mention but I guess its bette not saidalthough lie ought to be kicks out These state ments may be easily verified upon in quiring of any members of the Fifteenth infantry JJ Mr Riordan brought home a number of souvenirs for hIs friends who have been

enthusiasm opened Monday under the most favorable cir cumstances with the weather all that could be desired and tine arrangements perfect The citys business houses were gaily decorated presenting a handsome and bright appearance and every avail able foot of space along the route of the great parade was occupied by the throngs of strangers and friends of the Elks Promptly at 1 oclock amid cheers and the ringing of bells and blowing of whistles the command to move was given and each division fell into line with a preci sion that was surprising First in order came Grand Marshal Griffiths and Chief of Staff John Borntraeger and assistants followed by Mayor Weaver Exalted Ruler Robert W Brown visiting Mayors and other distinguished guests in carriages The entire police force under command of Chief Haager in their new fall uniforms presented an imposing ap pearance and were highly complimented on all sides They are a body of men that our citizens have every reason to feel proud of being unsurpassed by no similar body of men in the United States with perhaps the exception of New Yorks Broadway squad Division A was composed of Louisville Lodge of Elks in dress suits and white duck caps one section marching and the other in tandem Many of Louisvilles best known citizens were in the latter and presented a novel sight driving coal 8ttllIt nr Division B was the largest in the entire parade The Roman Knights in full uniform headed the division followed by Marshal Joe Nevin and his escort of sixteen aides Messrs John Murphy Thomas Keenan Charles Feeney Patrick Sullivan John Hennessy Jeff Bannon William M Higgins Frank Cunningham George J Butler Thomas W Tarpey John M Mulloy John Kelly Pat Nelli gan Con Ford William Kinney and Mike ODonnell Then followed two United States and Irish flags and the handsome banner of the Ancient Order of Hibernians then came the St Pat ricks Cadets under command of Capt Tommy Keenan in their natty blue uniforms and they were the recipients of an ovation from one end of the route to the other Their marching and drilling were perfect Capt Keenan was ably assisted by Lieut Charles Greenville and Sergt Willie PhillipsI With the approach of the Hibernian Knights in their fall dress uniforms and green plums there was renewed cheering Capt Breen and his men presented an appearance unsurpassed by any other company in the parade and where there was room his men went through some very diffcult evolutions almost perfectly After the Hibernian Knights came the divisions of Ancient Order of Hiber nians and the County Board officers to whom the credit is due for the excellent showing made and the IrishAmerican Society numbering about 1000 men wearing red white and blue and green badges The number would have been many hundreds larger but for the fact that numbers of members had to remain at work or were obliged to turn out with the Elks or other uniformed bodies Following a band next marched Mack in Council several hundred strong wear ing neat caps and carrying canes The popularity of this society was many times attested by the cheering which greeted their appearance All in all the display made by the IrishAmericans was the equal of any and surpassed that of many of the divisions They most fittingly showed their appreciation of the enterprise of Louisville Lodge of Elks and their lively interest in Louis villes progress One of the most unique features of the parade was the showing made by the Italian Brotherhood accompanied by a float symbolizing the discovery of this country by Christopher Columbus Their uniforms were new and elegant and the idea of this feature originated with Louis Carraro and Mark Denunzio The trades unions also made an excel lent showing several affiliated with the Central Labor Union taking part The carpenters turned out in large numbers as did also the plasterers cigarmakers bricklayers coopers and butchers There were about 250 floats in line divided between the different divisions the most marked and beautiful being those of Walter Brothers Claystreet Brewery Frank Fehr Senu Acker Ulan John F Oertel KisMe Chewing Gum Company Hirsch Brothers SM Ratio Co W

that American to the contrary notwithstanding Doubtless it would not be sold but that it has to be Herbert Muckross who like many another Irish landlord has been for long only a tribute payer to London money lenders is unable to pay and as his creditors refuse to be further put off the estate must be soldThe effort to sell it at private sale failed though there are many win desired to purchase it indeed iit seems the contest for it caused the failure since it developed that the highest bidders tine IrishAmeri cans and Sir Thomas Lipton pro posed to give it to the Irish people as a free public park Such a thing as free public lard in Ireland for the use of the people The Irish landlords the English nobility tin London speculators and money len ders all disapprove of such use for Irish land the first because it would be the inauguration of a new land system in Ireland the latter be cause it would be 14000 acres of Irish land withdrawn from their tribute list Then there are two London syndicates which want the property as an investment for profit part of it to be leased or sold for general uses and the historic and famous portions to be a resort for tourist sightseers and in this Eng lish steamship and railway com panies are doubtless interested Besides it is evident that the Eng lish dislike of foreigners controlling laud in Great Britain was manifested in dallying with and finally heading off the IrishAmerican of fer as well as the announced inten tion of two American millionaires to make offers for the property It was announced and never denied that the IrishAmericans made lie highest bid and no one doubts that Mr Croker and his associates are able to and would make the highest bid for anything they want and certain to outbid the Irish landlord the English nobility and the Lon don shylocks who despite their boasting lack the cash As to Sir Thomas Liptonhe is an Irishman with rather American ways and in clinations So the highest bids at private sale were not accepted and Killarney is to be offered at public auction in Dublin on Tuesday November 21 to pay the debts of a degenerate son of Ireland In the sale will be included Muck ross House and the demesne which entirely surrounds the middle lake of Killarney and to a large extent bounds the upper and lower lakes with its deer forests game pre serves fisheries lakes mountains and islands

manifest their approval of the enterprise and public spirit of th antlered fraternity by visiting the val during the coming week The pr eeningIand those who can attend only one night will do well to remember this AGAINST GOEBEL Charles J Bronston Will No Support Him for the Governorship The most startling sensation of the week in the campaign now being waged for the office of Govenor was time letter from State Senator Bronston of Lexington declining to longer support Senator William Goebel andasking for his removal from the ticket In a speech at Hartford Thursday Goebel admitted his agreement with Carlisle but says it was not carried out because Carlisle wanted on the delegation men opposed to him Senator Bronstons letter is as follows J C S Blackburn Chairman Dear I Sir I take the liberty of addressing you as the Chairman of the Democratic Cam paign Committee and the recognized lead er of the Kentucky Democracy Upon my return from Europe I received a le ter from your committee asking me to speak on behalf of the Democratic ticke- headed by the Hon William Goebel T that letter I made prompt response avow ngmy intentions of voting for Mr Goebel and the entire ticket and expressing my willingnesss to speak at any timer or place your committee might consider an advantage to the cause of Democracy granting however the right to speak frankly and consistently upon certain measures incorporated in the party plat form and especially assuring the commit tee of my readiness at all times to t anything to aid the success of the candidates selected by the Democratic party not violative of selfrespect nor inconsistent with personal honor Your committee has made no reply to that letter and I must therefore assume that it is still reserving the right to ac cept or reject my offer at its pleasure I have just read the letter of b Goebel to Mr Carlisle of date May 23 1890 and knowing me as you do it Iis scarcely necessary for me to say that I can not now speak for Mr Goebel on conditions To do so would be a gr violation of all selfrespect and a sacrifice of all personal honor and in my humble judgment disloyal to the best interests the Democratic party Recalling as I do the memorable contest in the General Assembly of Kentucky in the spring of 1800 and especially the treachery to you and through you the party which had- I chosen you as its candidate of Mr Car- lisle and his followers I am simply ii rifled at being forced to know that Mr Goebel with whom I was so intimately and constantly associated was then h fire boring the intent immediately upon ti adjournment of the Legislature and while your race was still pending and ti cause for which we were so desperately fighting was still held in the balance at once rush into the arms of his bitterest foe and unite with him in making your success and the principles embodied in your race impossible I will not indulge the presumption of even suggesting to you and your asso elates that mill selfrespect party pride and personal donor demand that Goebels name should by the party or ganization be stricken from the tick and H loyal upright honest Deuioc and true man be put m his place Upon
