delegates present at the meet ing of the Central Labor Union at Becks Hall last Sunday afternoon when Presi dent James McGill let fall the gavel call ing that body to order The session was an important and interesting one and a great deal of business was transacted that will have a decided bearing and awaken renewed interest in the trades union movement Kentucky After the reading of the minutes of the preceding meeting credentials were reo Popular Member of Melfert Slock Company MISS EDITH WARD ceived from the following unions and obligatedandfareatedP =Ed sj r= l Painters and ecorators =GrHrHun ter E Varies and H Crandall The delegates from the Association of Street Railway Employes were also seatedA number of communications were read and acted upon the most important being from the Commerce Commission of the State of New York requesting the cooperation of the workingmen of this city in support of the measures to be presentedat the next session of Congress in behalf of American shipping interests The Commerce Commission calls atten tion to the long neglect of this great trade stating that at the present time 90 per cent of the American shipping is being done in foreign vessels built on for eign shores Congress will be asked to pass resolutions calling for an American built Americanowned and American manned merchant marine for our foreign carrying trade The proposition was heartily indorsed and Representative Young will urge favorable action by the American Federation of Labor conven tionThe General Executive Board of the National Clothing Cutters and Trimmers Union requested the assistance of the Central Labor Union upon the occasion of the visit here of their representative which was granted and also the services of the Organization Committee The Organization Committee was also Instructed to assist the chainmakers and bartenders in increasing the membership of the former and reorganizing the latter at the request ot the national body The annual election of a delegate to represent the Central Labor Union at the Convention of the American Federation of Labor which meets in Detroit Mon day week resulted in the selection of Walter M Young for that honor His election was by acclamation and was a most deserved recognition of his ability Mr Young represents Typographical Union No 10 in the central body and its members are elated over the result He is known as a worker rather than talker and no better choice cquld haye been made as he will undoubtedly wield quite an influence Resolutions were enthusiastically adopted inviting the American Federation to hold its twentieth annual session in this city and also asking the Commer cial Club and Board of Trade to assist the Central Labor Union in bringing that great meeting to Louisville James Mar tin William Poole and Charles Peitz were appointed a committee to visit the Board of trade and Commercial Club for the purpose of enlisting them in the move ment which would mean a great deal to oar city PrwHdent McGill who will alo be a delegate will aid Delegate Young in every way possible to laud Louisvillel a winner They have a apleta did 11ed c rry off the prie aa Syra cuss ia the only city than far oat for the convention Resolutions there also adopted looking to the foiination of a State Federation of Labor for Kentucky The need for such an oljjanuailou baa been apparent for moral yew cad tart tfaat the gaitiOrl tM HM ntinn of that Wyhaa tatqf ja p 11 dorsed and issued good results may be looked for One of the main objects of this organization will be to formulate bills and recommend such legislation to the State Legislature as will be of the greatest benefit to the working people It was recommended that membership be limited to one representative from each union regardless of its membership and that the delegates expenses should be defrayed by the unions sending them These State Federations exist in New York Wisconsin Illinois Indiana Ohio Iowa Massachusetts Connecticut New Jersey Missouri and Utah and have been instrumental in obtaining favorable legis lation for the laboring classes where they existThe Support of the Central body was also pledged the Association of Street Railway Employes in the work of adding to their membership which now em braces the men on nearly all the principal runs Considerable business of routine character was disposed of before the meeting adjourned OFF FOR WASHINGTON Hon Oscar Turner left Thursday to at tend the session of Congress which be gins next Monday Mr Turner will probably be the youngest member of the National Legislature but his friends ex pect he will make his mark as a Con gressman and have confidence in his ability to represent his district to the en tire satisfaction of his constituents Some of the Republican politicians of this city are talking about the possibility of his being unseated in the contest instituted against him by Walter Evans after the latter s defeat Such a proceeding would be a worse outrage than Goebelism and would forever condemn the Republican party nn the eyes of the people of this dis trict The IrishAmericans of this dis trict helped to elect Mr Turner and take pardonable pride in the fact that the election was the fairest ever held in the Fifth district Should Congress commit the outrage of unseating Turner the district can be relied upon to be safely Demo cratic for years to come Mr Turner is a gentleman who is well worthy the honor bestowed upon him by his constituents and it is predicted by his friends that he will do more for the Fifth district than has been done by any Congressman for years past ST CECILIAS FEAST CELEBRATED Sunday November 20 toeing within the octave of St Cecilias day was celebrated with tine

from passing under the hammer of the auction eerby subscribing 15000 which is 5000 in excess of the mortgage Accompany ing the draft was the following personal letter from Mr Croker dated November 2 I have the honor in behalf of Tam many Hall to herewith inclose a draft for l3OOO for the purpose of clearing the entire now resting upon the Parnell homestead thus securing the retention of the home in the family Our original intention was to raise l2OOO but upon consideration the organization concluded to increase the amount to a figure that would be sufficient to com pletely wipe out all existing mortgages against the homestead AWFUL WARNING There was a man who was too stingy to subscribe for his home paper so sent his little son to a neighbor to borrow one As the boy was going home he fell

Paul Jones We cordially indorse the idea and hereby publicly express our hearty readi ness to cooperate in this most patriotic undertakingFor hundred years the remains of this gallant American officer have reposed in the soil of FranceFrance ourancient ally and present friend For one hundred years his memory has been an in spiration to the American navy and his deeds are forever treasured in the arch ices of the nation Though his remains have been sacredly guarded by France for a century it is but fitting that they should at last have a final resting place here in the United States a land he loved so much and for which he fought so bravely and so well John Paul Jones will long be remem bered in American naval annals as one of the most heroic officers who ever swore allegiance to the constitution and the flag Fruitful in resource prompt to act bold in the face of tremendous odds utterly de 0 astr nest France in 1709 Coming to Virginia in 1773 he inherited the estate there of a deceased brother At the outbreak of hostilities between Britain and the colo nies he offered his services to Congress and was made Lieutenant in our infant navyBeing assigned to sea duty he quickly showed himself ah intrepid officer cap turing many prizes from the British and striking swift and sudden blows for the cause of liberty- In the fall of 1776 he was prompted to Captain and continued his gallant prowess against the foe In 1777 he took the United States ship Ranger to Europe and the next year received from a French manofwar the first salute ever given the American flag in foreign waters by a European warship- In April 1778 he descended upon the Englishcoast landed his bluejackets and marines scaled the cliffs of Whitehaven spiked thirtyeight British cannon and spread consternation throughout the countryWhile commanding an American and French squadron in 1770 with the Don homme Richard as his flagship lie met a British squadron off the Scottish coast convoying a merchant fleet to the Baltic With night fallen upon the scene he at tacked the enemy and for three hours waged desperate battle off Flamborough headIt was on this occasion after the combat had fong

pointedly rThe New Orleans School Board for some reason not stated has refused to grant holidays to the pupils- on Christmas and New Years ordered classes to be held as usual and pupils to attend on those days The pupils led by the high school girls Hectare they wiil not attend school on those days even if they are ex pelled Public opinion is backing up the rebellious ial1d the board is urged to

liable for damages The British censor permits the report of a victory over the Boers once again It is brief and painfully 1 lacking in details Gen t Methuen reports he met and routed I the Boers in a ten hours battle at Modder river the bloodiest of the century the slaughter was terrible and the British withdrew to rest after the struggle That is all in three official diepatches LonII don cheered for the victory but the meagerness of the dispatches the hours of suspense and finally the silence of the censor have caused misgivings throughout England as to the fruits of the victory In the meantime more troops are being called for It is reported that Ladysmith has surrended to the Boers and that the Dutch of Cape Colony are joining the Boers by companies and battalions We thought those Irish regi ments in the British army in Trans vaal were fakes since they only run or surrendersomething their pre decessors whose name they bear became famous for not doing The Irish Fusileers famed for brave deeds in many battles but whose recent record in the Transvaal is a surrender without a desperate fight when trapped near Ladysmith are said by the Mayor of Dublin to have very few Irishmen in their ranks Probably it was those very few Irishmen who did the little fighting before the Fusileers ingloriously struck their flag and surrendered lThe record of the Irish Fusileers f ki

law which the Secretary of State promptly promised to do All of which is proper Investiga tint by government detectives has as yet failed to locate the armed expeditions and it seems that John Bull

housewife who sees before her visions of weeks of work in packing away all nickuacks and looking to the safe handling of pic tures and articles of vertu For sometime this terrible day has been robbed olf its horrors in the Past where a compe tent and responsible person took com plete charge and while the family were enjoying themselves in various ways the transition from one house to another wa accomplished without trouble This is a workeminently suited for a woman to oversee because this requires a respon sible head and a corps cf capable assist ants When all was complete the famil entered and took possession having absolutely nothing to do in the matter ofr change of residence Only the mistressI knows the relief of finding things all1I right carpets laid curtains up picturesI hung and furniture in its place or where a little rearrangement makes everything homelike once more This idea has beenI started in this city It remains to be seenI whether it will be a success All women should join in a generall rejoicing for it is predicted that the reign of the trained skirt is over and that by spring walking length will prevail It iisI noticed that the trained skirt is not quite as longas formerly but still necessitates holding up or it will sweep the street clean The rainy day skirt supplies a long felt want but because the custom is not universal many women refuse to wear it unless it is a rainy day sure enough Those women who have the courage of their convictions and moral backbone enough to wear one when shopping or walking on a bright sunshiny day are looked at askance and rather derisively termed 1new woman by their more con servative sisters The short skirt has a youthful effect on most females and it iis wonderful that it is not more generally adopted for this one reason alone should appeal to the feminine heart But the comfort and the hygentc considerations outbalance all others with those who wear them The new golf capes are beauties and for a cool day they are the ideal wrap But when the mercury gets on the other side of the zero mark Something that fits closer to the body will be found more comfortable These capes are more becoming to a tall slender person A slight willowy brunette recently was addedtheof a beautiful bright wine color with the plaid back of black and white combined with red A red and black toque with white breasts

artists and buy living pictures we should be doing a good thing Nothing shows ones good taste to such advantage as buying good bits of oilpainting Then besides it gives the artist a chance to live By

Francis Hall and Library continues to be crowded every night by young folks who patronize the magazines journals and books of which there is such a store The kindly custodian Mr Thomas Justa says there is room for many more yet Though there are a couple of hundred chairs there now he is perfectly willing to order an extra hundred or so more if necessary He issues a cordial invitation to all to come He is thinking of having a sign extended across the yard bearing the cheerful inscription Welcome on one side and Come in on the other This is positively the last announcement The inconvenience of having rich rela tives is often spoken of and written about No one will take an interest in a man no matter what his qualifications because it is inferred that the rich relative has ample means to help him and will assuredly do so if necessary The unintelligent selfish casehardened mass misscalled Christian men and women of many of our Christian circles should stop and consider that these rich

itself into their souls ifithey have any Telling a man to go to his rich relatives for an ordinary favor which any one is under moral obligation to do for another is only a way out of the bother and

Mme Fournoy who afterward became his wife are soon to be published They were written during the years of 1819 to 1822 and will serve to illustrate the deep poetic nature of the philosophernovelist of after life Mme Hugo will place them before the public during the early part of the coming year Many people find it hard to forgive Can you forgive her was asked of his readers by Anthony Trollope over thirty years ago That he answered in the affirmative only showed his genial good nature Today the novelist Amelie E Ban asks Is it right to forgive with a seriousness that as a contemporary says warns MS that she is facing a social problem and marshaling the characters of her story into a witnessbox That we should forgive is true in the abstract but mighty hard in the concrete That those who should love us should be not only en tirely indifferent to our wellbeing or to our decease but do likewise strive to harm uswell this is enough to make one decline an affirmative answer in a very positive manner But He taught forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us Now the man in New York who jumps backward over a high chair landing on eggs without breaking them is doing an easy thing compared to the bother of keeping this lias in the right place when it stands in our way compelling us to forgive if we hope to be forgiven ANNIE Navm CUNNINGHAM THE IRISH FUSILEERS It has been a matter of surprise to many people that the Irish Fuslleers should be conspicuous in the ignoble work of killing off the Boers in South Africa The matter iis now cleared upby a statement by the Right Honorable Daniel Tailors Lord Mayor of Dublin who says In iaa mistake to suppose that members of the Irish Fuslleer military organization are all Irishmen I note that the telegraph reports make it appear that because this organization iis doing some heavy fighting in the Trans- Vaal the battle of England are being fought best by Irishmen This is by ao nuaiia the case when it Is

misadventure IRISH FEELINQ AROUSED A matter which is deeply exciting the Irish of Montreal at present is the attempt of the Grand Trunk Railway to secure possession of the little plot of ground near the entrance to the Victoria Bridge on which stands the monument to the memory of the six thousand Irish immigrants who died from ship fever in 1847 and were buried in that neighbor hood The monument which consists of a huge bowlder of granite suitably inscribed was erected during the build ing of the Victoria Bridge by the work men of Sir Thomas Brassey and the control of it was placed in the hands of the Anglican Bishop of Montreal The Grand Trunk finds the monument much in its way it is situated among its net work of tracks and is in such a position that some much needed improvements can not be gone on with unless it Is removed The Anglican Bishop has referred the offer of the railway to move the monument to the city cemetery or to an adjoining square to the Irish people and they have been holding meetings to discuss the question The sentiment of the meetings is unanimously hostile to the proposed change Any interference with either the plot or the stone says a resolution adopted at one of these meet ings would be a violation of Christian charity and a blot on the escutcheon of Canadian humanity It does not appear that the monument marks the resting place of any of the victims they died in such numbers that they were buried coilnless in deep trenches in a nearby field which is now covered with houses It is curious that although only fifty three years hays passed since the epi demic no one seems to know exactly where the burial spot was THE PRAYER OF AFFLICTION They have sung theUDc Profundis oer the remains of mother dear I am so lonely now Lord its notes still echo la
