He was assigned the charge relating to the Begums, nnd on this charge he delivered two specchos, one in the House of Commons, tlic other soon after in Westminster Hall. Of the first of these eagle flights of genius, which occupied five hours and a half, no record has been preserved. It is enough to say that it was by universal concession one oi the most daullng and powerful efforts of oratory in all modern times. No parallel can be cited during the entire Christan ra comparable to the effect produced in the House of Commons by this famous harangue upon the fourth charge against Hastings. A signal proof of its power was that the House deemed it necessary to adjourn without taking a ote in order to give the astonished mem bers time to collect their reason and re cover from the dazzling enchantment and We excitement they had undergone. have the testimony of many who were present that he seemed to hold the House in the hollow of his hand. He sent thrill after thrill of sentiment and emotion vibrating and pulsating to the sensibilities of his heaters, as if their very heart strings were held in the grasp of his trembling fingers, and his audience followed him as the mighty ocean tide follows the pathway of the moon.

The Irish are born orators and Ireland stands proudly foremost among oil the countries of the earth as being the mother of orators whose names will live as long as the race itself. These men were cradled in adversity, grew to manhood under oppresion, and their whole lives were along cry against injustice and persecution. Their voices were attuned to defiant themes, and under these circumstances their eloquence found vent, an eloquence which to this day appeals to human sympathies and finds an echo in the human heirt. Take the name of every Irish orator and you will find that all their eloquence had but one object their country and her welfare and one mieht say was so much incense, so many burnt offerings laid upon the altar of their country. And who were Ireland's greatest orators? I naturally first mention EDMUND BURKK. Richard Crokkr's success as a leader of men is due to his Napoleonic reserve and his fidelity to his friends. He is the most deceptive political leader living. To the man who approaches him for the rst time he looks what is called "an easy thing." His voice is soft, his eyes guileless, his manner subdued and diffident, and he has a way of asking for another's tone. opinion in a Many men have been broken in pieces on the boss' outward mask before ever gaining so much as an inkling of the real man, and he who boasts that he knows Richard Croaker intimately is using his hat as a telephone. It is safe to say that there is no man in the Tammany who would venture a rganization liberty with the boss. Democratic in manner though he be, there Is still an impalpable wall of reserve about him that is never pierced by any man, not even those who are his confidents as to organization affairs. This reserve is not assumed for enect ; it is the nature of the man. He possesses to a ma'rked degree the dignity that results from perfect physical and mental poise. He is not a cultured man. but ue takes this life and himself as seriously as any theologian. He rarely loses Ins tern per, but when he does, it is a good thing to retreat as speedily as possible. There is only one person in tue worm who ever dared lord it over Croker, and that is Mrs. Croker. The was in Tam many say under their breath that the idea of a Democratic club occurred to to-da- y "No British orator," says Mr. Iecky, except Chatham, had an equal power of firing an educated audience with intense enthusiam, or of animating and inspir ing a nation." His element was grandeur, there was life in his very touch. Brilliant, impassioned ardor distinguished the oratory of Grattan, and impressed the reader of his speeches even more perhaps than his profound knowledge, his consummate art, beautiful imagery, and his exquisite diction. The blaze, rapidity and penetration of his oratory struck all who heard him. He poured out his arguments like a shower of arrows, but they were arrows tipped with fire. He was superb in crushing infective, in terse, luminous statement, in severe argument and biting sarcasm. What an amount of feeling is conveyed in that sentence in which he speaks of his efforts to establish freedom of the Irish Parliament: "I watched by its cradle, I followed its hearse." What can be finer than the close of his great speech in 1780 on moving a declaration of Irish rights: "I have no ambition unless it be to break your chain and to contem plate your glory. I will never be satis fied so long as the meanest cottager .in. .... .r ..... ' clanking to uis rags. He may De naicea, he shall not be in irons, and I do see the time is at hand, the spirit has gone forth; the declaration of right is planted ; and though great men should fall 6ff, yet the cause shall live; and though the public speaker should die, yet the im mortal fire shall outlast the humble organ who conveys it, and the breath of liberty, like the word of a prophet, will not die with him, but survive him." The speech from which this peroration is taken is perhaps the finest effort of Grattan's genius. Nothing equal to it had ever been heard in Ireland. Other speeches on this same subject may have matched it in argument, but in startling energy and uplendor of style and diction it sur passed them all. In his speech on the downfall of Bona parte, he denounces the tyranny of Napo leon as "an experiment to universalize throughout Europe the dominion of the sword; to relax all moral and religious influences ; to set heaven and earth r.dnft from one another, and make God Almiehtv a tolerated alien in his own .

One of the finest bpeclmens of his elo miPtiri. is the famous passage in his speech upon the Nabob of Arcofs debts Tlvder All upon the Carnatic. To read this is never to forget it, "The black cloud," into which Hyder Ali "compounded all the materials of fury, havoc nnd desolation, which hung for a while on the declivities of the mountains;" the "storm of universal fire that blusted the land." the prisoners "enveloped in a whirlwind of cavalry" the people in bega nation that stretched out its gary hands for food, "the impious vow of Hyder All and his yet more ferocious son," so completely carried out that when ihf nriilsh army traversed the Carnatic fnr hundreds of miles in all directions throueh the whole line of their march did net see one man, not one child, not beast of any description n. whatever, universal silence reigned over the whole region." The best proof of tlie vividness nnd intensity of tub pas. sage which I, could not quote in full, is the fact hackneyed as t is, no peraon of sensibility can read it without a tingling of the blood in every vein.

Champ for the installation of compressed air apparatus for operating the big Cathedral chimes has progressed so far that several private tests of the ap paratus now in place have been made. The plant is not yet completed, and will not be for some time, but the designer is confident of his ultimate success along the lines upon which he is now working. His devices are entirely original, and it is understood that no other chime-ringin- g apparatus operated by compressed air has ever been used successfully. The air power is applied at the striker from a reservoir in which it is stored at eighty pounds pressure. The system is operated by electrical connections from a keyboard, which will not have to be located near the bells themselves. DUTCH IN CAPE COLONY. The proclamation of the Dromahair meeting recalls many stories of the old fighting days, when a V. R. document pasted on the village pump or on a police barrack shutter didn't attract as much attention as a hen on a ball door on n wet day. Crowds of reminiscences surge up. Yet there is one recollection which elbows out many others. Canon Tom Doyle-stur-diest of fighters, and many an ugly wipe he gave some of us later on was being tried in Arthurstown, that delightful little nook on the Wexford side of Waterford harbor. Redcoats lined the sea wall; police swarmed the two streets of the village; mounted men scoured the county around. Strict orders were issued that under no consideration were demonstrations of any kind to be permitted. As meeting, why it would be for repressed with bloodshed. ' Well, the trial of the men who dared to encourage the Foley's Fort defenders and such others was going on. Silence hung pall-lik- e over the place. Then, without as much as "by your leave," two lighters, or barges, came along, towed by a puffing, panting little canal tug, that with unparalled audacity anchored in the bend of the barber, right opposite the n court house. A brass band was In one barge, the other was crammed with sympathizers and refreshments. The banks resounded with the clamor of "O'Donnell Aboo," and Capt. Slacke now Sir Owen went frantic.

Tuesday closed the hottest campaign in Kentucky's history, and no matter what the result, the State has been benefited thereby. Taylor and Goebel both claim the election; the former by 5,000, the latter by less than 1,000. The most complete returns verify Taylor's claims. paThe reports of the in the usual way, pers are published by precincts, wards, towns, counties and districts, specified as official or estimated; the vote of the respective candidates are given, the totals added up and the final result shown. It is not so in the Goebel papers. There is an air of mystery about their reports; they are lumped by wards, counties and districts, with undesignated precincts "miss ing," and on this is based Goebel's claim, the lumped reports often disagreeing with dispatches published iu the same papers. Tfie Courier-Journhas never published a report by precincts of the result in this city, Covington, Lexington or Newport, or, indeed, from any county in the State. On the morning after the election it claimed Goebel's election by 7,000, with over 80 precincts "missinjr." 11 of which were in Louisville, but without designating the "missing" precincts; finally ,on Friday morning it claims Goebel's election by less than 1,000, with 35 precincts "missing," 5 of which are in Louisville. None of these "missing" precincts are named. On this basis Taylor's plurality in this county is 600 less, and in the State 5,000 less than given iu the full returns published in other papers. The Courier-Journreceived full returns just as the other newspapers did, and has withheld them from the public.

His eldest son drowned in the Philippines, himself injured in a street car accident, and now his mother's death, certainly entitle him to the fullest sympathy. With all these afflictions and the burdens they entailed upon him, Mr. Higgins' timidity has deterred him from pressing the subscribers and others indebted to the paper, but has struggled the harder to meet the expenses of giving the an organ and imevery issue.

The charges are denied by Funston, Catholic chaplains and officials and by the war department. Gen. Funston, whose volunteer term has expired, on his arrival at San Francisco to be mustered out, at once sued the Monitor for libel. Funston has earned fame and pro motion by his bravery in Cuba and the Philippines, and his appoint ment by the President was a de served acknowledgment of his services. To attribute it to politics and then slander the receipient and the Government is prompted by partisanism solely. There are really no grounds on which to base such charges. Funston is a gentleman and brave soldier, and the President in making appointments in the war has named men regardless of poll tics. The public and even poll ticians may not know this, but the editor of a paper ought to know it; at least he ought to learn the facts before he makes charges affecting character.

The American Federation of Labor has increased its membership over 250,000 this year. The first recorded strike in the United States is that of the journeymen bakers of New York, in 1741. The trade union deposits in the Post- office Savings Bank of England amounted to $2,600,000 last year. The granite cutters all over the coun try will come out in a demand for an eight-hou- r day on January l. Strikes among the molders are on at Milwaukee, St. Paul, Memphis, Louis-villHamilton, Lorain and Pittsburg, The street car men at San Antonio, Texas, won their strike in six days. Got an increase of wages and yearly agree ment. The oldest union in Great Britain is the United Society of Brushmakers, founded in 1778, and still flourishing with 1,512 members. The National Union of Steam Engin eers announce that on May 1, 1900, their scale of eight hours and $3 per day goes into effect. Trade unions of Montgomery, Ala., re fused to participate in an industrial pa rade because the managers barred the negro unions. About 1,500 colored oyster shuckers were locked out at Norfolk, Va., because they refused to sign an agreement to leave the union. The average weekly wages of the men employed in the cotton mills of Maine are $7.08; of the women, $5.00, and of the children, $2.73. The brakemen on the Big' Four have received an increase in wages. The company has increased their pay from $1.90 to $1.95 on each 100 miles. The Bricklayers' and Masons' International Union has issued charters to eight new uuions in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maine, Ohio, Indiana, Texas and Alabama. All the suburban cars entering Detroit are operated by Union men inside the city limits and now the men operating three of the suburban roads have organ ised, as they see the rived. A. C.

The Cleveland strike has developed three automobile companies, one of which will have some of their conveyances in operation within thirty days. The stock of the companies is selling very rapidly, many laborers investing from $10 to $100 each. The men who are on strike are taking an active part in the work and, viewing it from a business standpoint, believe the time is not far distant when they will operate automobiles instead of trolley cars, "I have been turning over strike mat ters and the more I think the more I am on the side of Labor. Labor and skill are capital as much as gold and silver. Labor and skill can produce without gold and silver. Gold and silver ore depend ant upon laLor and skill, but labor and skill are independent in limine. The union of the two capitals demand partici pation in the product. Wages are a minimized money representation of share in Cardinal product that is, in profits." Manning. The monthly report of the Dublin Labour Department of the Board of Trade, which has just been issued, states that the general employment during the month of September continued steady and good. The percentage of unemployed members returned by trade unions was still lower than at any similar period since 1889. In the 123 trade unions mak ing returns, with.an pggregate membership of 502,812, 12,129 (or 2.4 per cent.) were reported as unemployed at the end of September, as compared with 2.3 per cent, in June, July and Angust, and with 2.0 per cent, in the 117 unions, with a membership of 407,075, from which returns were received for September, 1898. A decision of paramount importance to organized labor in New York was handed down by the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court, third department, during its recent sessiou In Saratoga. The effect of the decision is that labor organizations may conduct strikes in an orderly, maimer, and may use argutnental measures to dissuade men from taking their places. The decision is rendered in favor of Ironmolders' Union No. 2, the Building Trades Union and other branches of labor organizations located in Troy, in the action brought against them by William Sleicher, Jr., and William N. Sleicher. The decision reverses an order of Justice Chester, cl Albany, ,N. Y., granted January 14 last, which continued a, preliminary injunction restraining the striker "from injuring or interfering with the business of William Schleicher, Jr.. and William N. Sleicher, iron foun ders of Wateryliet, by force, threats or intimidation during the pendency of an action brought by the latter against these appsllaBta." e, Press-feeders' Since the electtae of .John Mitchell as President of the United Mine Workers of I America in January last the increase has been almost phenomenal, nearly 40,000 new members having been installed in that period. Mitchell is an aggressive letder, and has distinguished himself by pushing into new fields and establishing locals in mining districts where hereto-lor- e they were unknown. The Miners' National Unionjiow sj)n:adsover nearly every State between the Alleghanies and the Pacific ocean, and in extending its organization has accomplished greater results in a brief period than hove ever been known in the history of the labor movement. John Mitchell is the youngest man ever elected to the office, being only in his thirtieth year. He is also Fourth Vice President .of the American Federation of Labor, Notwithstanding his youth his official career in various capacities in the organization has' been a long and useful one. He possesses the unbounded confidence of the men in all parts of the country. The members of the Dublin Typo graphical Society employed in job offices have already taken steps to enforce the resolution adopted by the executive favoring fifty hours to constitute a week's work. So 'far as can be ascer tained, the employers do not seem particularly anxioti3 to fall in with the demand of the men. Some of the former have, however, signified their intention of agreeing to a fifty-tw- o hours; week instead of fifty-fou- r as at present. The printers will, no doubt, accept any reasonable offer sooner thau disturb that harmony which at present exists between master and man in this particular trade. The practice of employing children of tender years to work long houre at manual labor is one which deserves the condemnation of all those who take an ing terest in the of the poor of our cities. From time to time cases have been brought under the notice of the public where little children have been engaged working for considerably over twelve hours a day in manv places in our great commercial centers. The poor little waifs, because of the poverty of their parents, have to put up with great in justice, and, as far as remuneration goes, they are completely at the mercy of miserly and grasping employers. Apsrt altogether from this aspect of the ques tion, child labor has the effect of taking away children from school at an early age, thereby depriving them of that education which in after years may gain for them good positions. At the Independent Labor Party conference in Dublin the following resolution on the subject was submitted: "That this conference, while still firmly desiring total abolition of child labor, welcomes the attempt to raise the age of and also trust that child labor out of school hours will be prohibited, especially the selling of papers, matches, etc., in the streets." Several speakers pointed out the injustice of employing child labor..

BOERS ANNEXING TERRITORY. The Transvaal Government has issued a proclamation declaring the district north of the Vaal river, including Bechu- jfhe analand, to be Boer territory, Orange Free State has taken similar ac tion in regard to Griqualand West and the territory between the Vaal and Orange rivers. The part annexed by the Orange Free Slate includes the great dia mond center, Kimberley. The territory annexed by the Transvaal and Orange Free State is vast in extent and rich in .possibilities for future development. . The Boers have taken military posses sion, of all the part of this territory inhabited by white people, except the town of Mafeking and a section of Northern Rhodesia (sometimes called British Cen tral Africa), which is defended by a force under Col. Plumer stationed in the of Tuli. Of this great area the Transvaal annexes by far the largest part. Bechuana-lanwhich President Kruger claims, has an area of 218,000 square miles and a population of 200,000, mostly blacks. Northern Rhodesia,, which also appears to be included in the Transvaal claim, has ati area of 810,000 square miles and a population of about 7,000,000, of whom few are whites. The.territory is bounded on the east by the Portuguese and German possessions, oh the north by the Congo State and on the west again by German and Portuguese land. The territory that is annexed to the Orange Free State includes an area of 25,000 square miles, iaad a population of about 600,000, of whom a large minority are white. It embraces the great diamond center, Kimberley, where Cecil Rhodes 3s now cooped up with the British garrison. The important town of Barkley West is also in this district The wealth of Kimberley is a tremendoua prize in itself, negh-borhod, born about the middle of the eighteenth century, was opproaching the zenith of his power at the time the great revolution was convulsing France.

Is there to be found a figure oi speech more startling than that of Curran's when he declaims against the spies brought by England to assist in convictions from the various prisous where they had been confined. "Those catacombs of living death, where the wretch that is buried a man lies till his heart has time to fester and dissolve and then he is dug up an informer." The stream of Curran's thought flowed red- hot and molten from a mind glowing with the fire of passionate feeling. The peroration of his great speech on universal emancipation is beautifully conceived: "A slave can not breathe in England; the first moment he touches the sacred soil of Britain the altar of slavery on which he had been offered up sinks into dust; his soul walks abroad in her own beauty nnd majesty, his body swells beyond the measure of his chains that burst from around him, and he stands redeemed, regenerated and disenthralled by the irresistible genius of universal emancipation."
