to Vote Upon An Important Proposition t Result Will Bo Announced at n General Meeting to Be Held in January A Committee Appointed to Ar range for the Observance of St Patricks Day FRANK CUNNINGHAM MADE CHAIRMAN During the past six months there has been a growing sentiment among the members of the Ancient Order of Hiber nians of Louisville that a consolidation of the various divisions into one strong body would be the means of inducing more persons to join the order and also reduce the expenses incidental to the carrying on of the great work for which the soy ciety is organized Inlhii city there are now five divisions besides the Ladies Auxiliary and the Hi bernian Knights Among the divisions some are in a very flourishing condition financially and numerically while the membership of at least one and possibly two has fallen off to quite an extent dur ing the past year and how to strengthen them has been a troublesome problem Able arguments have been made pro and con and the matter was finally brought before the County Board which subse quently appointed a committee to consider the matter and report what they thought the best plan to pursue County President Murphy ca1leda

Stand Their Equitable Burden of Taxation COERCION ACTS AND MARTIAL LAW From the Minneapolis Irish Standard of last week we take the following excel lent article which Irish Americans should read and make the truths therein stated more generally known Many intelligent Americans who have not studied the politicalrelations between England and Ireland for the past seven centuries and a quarter are at a loss to understand why the Irish are disloyal to Great Britain in the hour of need and why they sympathize with the Boers in the present war When an IrisbAmericrn speaks out strongly against great Britain and expresses the hope that the Transvaal will maintain its independence and come through the war triumphantly an American will be apt to accuse him of inheriting a prejudice against England When an American reads the London dispatch about the Irish leaders being opposed to the enlist ment of the young men of Ireland for the South African war he wilt be likely to ask why the Irish can not be as loyal as the Scotch to the British Empire of which they are subjects The manifesta tion of sympathy with the Boers at mass meetings held in Ireland is a puz ale to the American who has been fed on British literature and taught to believe that the British Government is engaged in carrying Christianity and civilization into Africa and Asia along with dumdum bullets and lyddite shells The unsoph isticated American of English descent finds it hard to comprehend why the- oitWtpd p1iaItoI him a stupid fellow and very malicious to say an unkind word of the great civilizer of mankindNow will tell the aforesaid Ameri can in as few words as possible why Irishmen ardently pray for the downfall of England and hope to sing a hosanna of praise over her defeat in the dark continent It is because during seven long centuries England has been cruel and rapacious in Ireland and has gov erned the Irish people with a rod of iron For nearly a hundred years ninetenths of the people of Ireland were trodden under foot by the other onetenth according to British law and even today the same minority rule the majority and compel the British Parliament to deny the right of selfgovernnent to the native race Every office of honor and profit in Ireland is filled by aliens and renegade natives The Irish people are compelled to submit to unjust laws or emigrate Lord Salisbury told them not long since that the alternative for dissatisfied Irish men was manacles or Manitoba The Queens Viceroy is paid 100000 a year out of the peoples pockets nod when the people demur they are clubbed fined or imprisoned There have been 40000 redcoats and 13000 bluecoats in Ireland to maintain British law and order and all at the expense of the people In fifty years the population of the country has diminished onehalf something un precedented in the history of a prolific race like the Irish During the same period the country has been afflicted with famines and the only relief afforded by the British Government has been ever cion acts and martial law The people have been prevented from holding public meetings to discuss their grievances and their leaders have beeR transported and imprisoned and hanged No wrongs have been redressed from a sense of jus tice and England never grants what Ireland demands During the post half century Ireland has been overtaxed ia violation of the act of union the enormous sum of fltJO 000000 and when a royal commission reports such a gigantic robbery the British rulers continue their swindling operations and make no restitution to the peo ple they have plundered The Catholic people of Ireland are deprived of higher education ia order that the Protestant minority may have all the fat offices iin the gift of the Government The British official in Ireland refuse to stand tuck equitable burden of taxation When a bill for the incorporation of suburban towns into the Dublin municipality passes the House of Commons It order to reach thetioataxpaying official the House of horde lays it on the shelf In the flee of all this why should the Irish pr e4e be loyal to England ia her hour of difficulty If the Irish were gowned like the

but it is so reo hgaS no institutions or system of relief for the unfortunate and helpless provided and supported by the Government The homeless and friendless poor have but one place to gothe workhouse where pett utt T7ttdthe stigma of the workhouse e rests ever after on the poor or the petty criminal alike who has ever been an inmate Children born iin the workhouse whether their parents were confined as criminals o r were merely poor forced to accept shelter and food are branded for life and barred from all respect or 4 preferment To have been an inmate of the workhouse in Englan is a disgrace so humiliating as to- l excite horror among decent poor people and they often suffer hard ship exposure and starvation rathe than go especially with their fami lies to the workhouse- In no other civilized country iis there such heartless disregard and lack of provision for the unfortu nate 6f humanity and to all peopl save the English the English s- ysi tern is regarded as brutal This i = made manifest by the revolt of the Irish people against the attempt of tsr the British Government to establish and enforce the English system or i rather abolish the Irish system oIf poor relief and substitute the work house therefor It is no crime to be popr in Ireland The Irish heartoverflows with sympathy for the unfortunate and generous re Ifefia extended them even at the tof sacrifice to the

unanimously approved by thet and forwarded to London The Dublin organization having bee formally organized with a large membership issued an address 1 toI the Town and District Councils throughout Ireland asking their cooperation with the result that committees are being named and the movement will soon become an all Ireland protest against the British Ministrys effort to interfere iin the expenditure of the poor relief funds paid by Irish taxpayers What ultimate course of action will be decided on in case the Ministr decline to withdraw the order has not been settled If the right of the British Ministry to interfere iin or exercise authority over Irish local affairs is to be the issue the question may be fought out in the courts able attorneys having vol unteered their services

regime she should be allowed to do this and not be forced to adopt the repulsive workhouse system which though it may suit England is horrifying to the Irish- RDICULOUS The eagerness of England to impress the public with the belief that she is gaining friends to approve and uphold her in her foreign policy is sometimes ridiculous Her claim for the past year of an alliance with the United States have been so per sistent that some thoughtless or ig norant editors believe and denounces thealleged secret alliance There can be no such thing as a secret al liance on the part of the United States since no one is authorized to represent or bind the Government in such compacts but the Senate which must approve it The President and his Cabinent have no such power which is sufficient to disprove the reported secret alliance Now comes from London another silly report of a tripartite alliance Great Britain Germany and the United States on this basis The Emperor of Germany Red the Prince of

Thi5nBasardused some of the contractors to unfavorable criti cism Usually the Printing Committee in our legislative bodies iis composed of men who know nothing about printing and approve a11 bills from the lowest bidder being unaware of the fact that busing inferior material and incompetent labor the printing furnishedd by the lowest bidder is too oftei more of a gouge than if furnisher by the highest bidder who would comply fully with specifications and furnish the class of printing contracted for Mr Sheperd is a practical printer and knows abou the different classes of material antis determined to stop the practice of some firms of putting in the lowest bid for firstclass printing shutting out the honest bidder and making money by furnishing at inferior class of printing at the price for first class to the loss of the city and detriment of the printing craft generally The union labell scored a victory in the awarding of the printing of the digest of city ordinances the work going to Bradley and Gilbert a union office We do not believe the report that an effort will be made to repeal the label ordinance ofbut if it is true let the attempt be made as we have no doubt the new Council will stand the test and uphold honest labor The claim that the ordinance unconstitutional only comes from printing firms without the label and though they have made this claim for years none of them have undertaken to test it in the courts the proper pIece to settle that issue The call for a State Federation of Labor in Kentucky seems to meet with favor Such an organization properly managed can certainly do much in the way of securing favor able legislation and defeating1 oo noxious measures in the Legiala lure It is worthy of a trial and its Inauguration indicates that Ken

iip New York Gael I A torrid sun remorselessly Is driving down his heat The fire as of a furnace grips each cal lous London street And dry and hungry as the grass that wilts in park and square Is this poor Irish heart of mine in Lon dons stifling air My sighs are speeding homeward and my fancies build anew The pleasant scenes that met of old a boys enchantedview With many a fervent blessing my dearest thought overflows To the bonnie braes of Mourne where the whin bush grows u Ahl rich are Londons citizens and wealth does much abound And fortunes here each day are lost and other fortunes found Each inch of ground is colored by the lustre of the gold Yet spite of all the heat and wealth my heart is drear and cold I would barter all its pleasures all its riches all its pride For one sweet saltladen whisper from old Carlingfords deep tide For one hour of buoyant boyhood pluck ing hazelnuts and sloes By the bonnie braes of Mourne where the whin bush grows III The coffered wealth of London finds its foil in Londons woe As great seas that feel the sunshine can wild stormwaves also know There is blight as well as bounty in the fruitful harvest sheaf And each joy that laughs in London has its counterpart in grief Near where living sinews struggle some poor skeleton decays And both glow and gloom have fallen on my changeful city days But as light as grain of thistledown I rated all my woes But the bonnie braes of Mourne where the whin bush growsIV Gardens gay with wondrous blossoms in the midst of London stand Showing skeptics what rare marvels can be fashioned by Gods hand Choice exotics flowers whose fragrant zephyrs pausing seek to woo c010rspaintersLift their winsome heads Yet never can the fairest of them all Stealwith love unto my senses or my being hold in thrall Like the simple yellow gorsebloom that in freedom buds and blows By the bonnie braes of Mourne where the whin bush grows The ordinary furzebush with its dainty yellow blossom is known in Ulster as the whin bush L J e t CHAFF MCCCCCDuring the month of November the number of marriages in the Indian Territory amounted to six thousand This among the maidens of the Choctaw tribe alone The grooms were white men of good families The secret of such a boom in the matrimonial market lies in the fact that 1100 acres of land are to be given as a dowry to every Choctaw lady married before the first of December If any old maids remain among the Choctaws after this alluring inducement there will be no one to blame but themselves Kimberly is not the only place in the world where diamonds are found Long before the discovery of Kimberly these stones were found in India Borneo Bra zil and iu the Ural mountains None of these localities afforded any information as to their origin Kimberley is unique in this particular for they are not only found here but they are also formed in the same locality Diamonds have been found in different parts of the United States Especially is this true of regions about the great lakes They have been kept as souvenirs in farm houses for years before being discovered by any one versed in precious stones That they are carried in the glacial drift after the heavier debris has been deposited to regions further south is well known to geologists Since the war between the Boers and the British diamonds have advanced 70 per cent in value AIt may be encouraging to teachers and mothers to remember that many great and good men were considered bad and troublesome as boys Great men have strong impulses and sturdy natures and when we consider that children act from impulse and not judgment we must easily conceive that the child of large nature may be hard to control No uniform rule can be laid down either in school or home by which children can be governed In stincts of honor honesty order and such as resemble them are found ia different degrees iin each child but are more or less common to all Outside of these virtues no two children are alike no more than sweetpeas resemble hollyhocks or sunflowers are like roses The same warm inn and gentle rata develop them all tis true but theaame discipline and similarity of rule will be found

Belgian cellist has won renown in astronomy as well as in music The harmony of the spheres is sweeter to the ear of this young violinist than even the divine strains of the divinest of all musical in struments Any fine night when not engaged in her chosen profession she can be found at her telescope tracing the heavenly constellations and otherwise perfecting her already fine understanding of astronomy Many women have be come eminent in astronomy some even have reached such heights as to be able to predict the time of a comets appear ance in some remote corner of the skies Miss Maria Herschell was of the greatest assistance to her brother the re nowned astronomer after whom the planet was named she herself having discovered many of the asterdids AWinter is the best season for stargazing The crisp cold air makes the sky seem more blue and the stars assume greater brilliancy The most beautiful of all constellations Orion mentioned in the Book of Job the Ple dies Gemini with its twin brothers Castor and Pollux Canis Major Canis Minor Betelguese in the handle of the big dipper though this latter can be seen all the year round yet it seems a better color in winter Andro meda Lyra Cassiopeia and many other distinctly shaped constellations are all easily traced and once learned are hardly ever forgotten The southern and western parts of the city are best for stargazing as hardly a square yard of sky can be seen here in the central part unless one travel to the roof ofa building or climb up a church steeple Students must perforce go East or further North to enjoy the luxury of an observatory There is now a new postoffice at Nerinekx Ky with a Sister of Lorctto as a regularly appointed postmistress From this chosen spot is issued monthly a pleasing little pamphlet bearing the name Loretto Magazine It is the work of the Sisters and pupils of the academy near by and is in every respect a credit to the institution Many bright cheery anecdotes are to be found on its pages and if more generally known it could not but bring many students to this garden spot of old Kentucky xThe complete annihilation death from starvation of the body and mind ofa brave little

Beautiful Seen at Santa Claus Headquarters Something to Delight the Chil dren and Amuse the Old Folks as Well MERRY CHRISTMAS AT BACON SONS With the nearing of the holiday season the uptodate merchant contrives to arrange for his windows and storerooms a display in keeping with the festive sea son Where there were previously only cdmmonplace articles of merchandise to set off the windows and counters there comes with the Christmas tide an array of special holiday offerings that presents a vivid contrast to the everyday exhibits just supplanted- It is a well known fact that Louisville people are in a far more prosperous con dition than for seven Christmases just past and in view of this fact our mer chants will vie with each other in pro viding for their establishments unique and attractive displays of their holiday wares One large store of this city in particu lar is always a sort of Santa Claus head quarters The children from year to year look forward with joyful anticipa tion to the time when J Bacon Sons on Market street between Preston and Jackson shall announce to the public that their ever popular displays are ready inspectionThe came Saturday and in the afternoon hundreds of little girls and boys were crying to go to Bacons Indulgent mothers could not resist nor did they even try for it must not be forgotten that grown people love to see Bacons windows just the same as the little people The consequence was that early Saturday afternoon the usual crowd had gathered about the well known east window which is a house hold word all over Louisville for its in genious Christmas displays The side walks were soon blocked and it was with great difficulty that the freight handlers unloaded the great wagons fun of Christmas novelties that were lined up against the curbing The famous east window this sea son presents to the astonished eyes of the little one three wonderful jugglers and a tightrope walker The latter is a fanciful figure dressed in pink and blue who does surprising things ou the tight rope Every now and then the children would clutch mammas hand thinking the harlequin was going to fall But not so Instead it was just a little trick of his to surprise them Then while a grotesque little Fillipino girl plays upon an accordeon and a towsley headed African thrums his banjo the figure raises his foot thrusts it through a hoop in his left hand and then coquettishly waves his red and yellow parasol While you are wondering how he is going to get out of his posi tion he suddenly solves it for you re tracing his pedal in the same way which it went through at the beginning The three jugglers are very captivating themselves The first who is as gaudily dressed as the Humpty Dumpty pictures of our childhood is a magician worth seeing Some of Bacons little admirers are talking of inviting Her mann the great to come up and see a sure enough prestidigitator who deftly knocks his own head off with a fan finds it in a dice box and with a second wave of his wonderful fan restores it to his shoulders If Hermann can beat this they say he is a genius to be sure The second juggler is not far behind in astonishing feats He has a very wise look upou his face all the time and you can easily see that he knows a lot more than you might at first glance suppose He does his trick with a big high hat and a flaming red handkerchief He smiles as he lays the handkerchief over the hat and yon feel right away that he knows his business Then all of a sudden he lifts the covering thrusts his hand in the hat and pulls outa mouse I It is really wonderful and the children clap their hands in genuine glee Covering the hat again the magician smiles pleasantly and then reaches in and takes out the cutest little rabbit you ever saw The third juggler stands at a little table He wears a comical peaked hat like a clown in a circus which he takes off and places over the table When he lifts the hat you behold a beautiful gold ring lying upon the table Then he covers the ring and table with the hat for the second time and when he next lifts it you see a football where the ring laveFor the third time be does his mar vellous trick and lol there lies on the table a die Through the entirp per formance the Fillipino maid and the little negro boy play on their respective instruments just as if they had been used to seeing such things all their lives On the inside the display is pretty nearly as much like fairyland as the pan tomime in the window The toy room is more dazzling and attractive than ever before and the childrens delight is pro portion tely increased One very strong attraction is a long glass case filled with dolls of all sizes and nationalities Me chanical toys abound ia great profusion all plainly marked with their price in large figures J Bacon Son have long enjoyed an enviable distinction for the iogenloiwuees of their holiday dipUyi and the present one will ado to tlieiir afesaily widespread fame MWOUS
