F Sunday, 11 o'clock Inaugurated the Holy Year by solemnly performing the beautiful and impressive ceremony of opening the Holy Door of St. Peter's Cathedral. The ceremony took place in the handsomely decorated vestibule in the presence of the Papal officers, the members of the Diplomatic Corps, leading representatives of the Roman nobility and a number of specially invited guests. After donning the Pontifical robes the Pope, borne on the Sedia Gestateria and escorted by the Papal Guards, proceeded with the Cardinals and the Court to the Sistine Chapel, in the Vatican palace, where were gathered representatives of the Roman religious orders and clergy. After a brief prayer before the Holy Sacrament, which was there exposed, Leo intoned the "Venl Creator," and then again ascended the Sedia Gesta-toriPreceded by clergy and friars who bore lighted candles, the Pope proceeded to the vestibule of the basilica, priests lining the halls and staircases en route. In the vestibule the Papal throne had been erected. The Supreme Pontiff ascended the throne, which wasimmediately surrounded by Cardinals and dignitaries. Suddenly a heavy bell boomed. Leo rose and walked toward the Holy Door preceded by the Graud Plenipotentiary, Cardinal Mgr. Serafino Vannutelli, Pre fect of the Congregation of Bishops and Regulars, met .him and handedfceihim a.

This union has perhaps made greater progress during the past year than any other labor prganization in this city, until today all of the foundries are employing, with very few exceptions, only men belonging thereto, and the relations between employers and employes are of the most friendly nature. During the past month a lively but friendly contest has been waged between four candidates for the Presidency, which resulted in a decided victory for John officers for The members of Division 4 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians held the last meeting of the year Wednesday evening and celebrated the event in a happy manner. Notwithstanding the many counter attractions in Limerick and throughout the city, every chair was occupied when President John Hennessy called the assemblage to order. This has been the most successful year in the history of Division 4, not a single month having passed in which the membership was not increased, and too much praise can not be bestowed upon President Hennessy, Tom Lynch, Harry Brady, Johu Grogan, George Flahive and Joe McCarthy for the great work th'ey have done. , Committeemen Jerry Hallihan and Bob Mitchell, two of the most zealous members of the Relief Committee, asked to be released from further service. With their colleague, Con O'Leary, they had performed their duties for several years in a most acceptable manner, and in view of this fact their resignations were reluctantly accepted. Patrick Burke, John Winn and Bernard Callahan were appointed the Relief Committee for the next six months. Besides one initiation five new members were elected and one application referred.

P., the famous statesman, historian and novelist, has given to the World the following signed statement on England's dilemma: While attempting to review the nature of the task England has undertaken in South Africa I may say I shall do my best to regard the subject from the point of view of an unprejudiced outsider. I think the English Government made a profound mistake when it allowed itself to be drawn into such a war. I feel convinced that if the heart, the conscience and the intelligence of the English people in general could have been aroused in good time to the real character and policy of the small group of men who are pressing the war, it would never have taken place. About the ultimate success of the British arms in South Africa there can be no manner of doubt. Nothing but a combination of the great powers against England could prevent her ultimate success. Such a combination is not likely to take place. How to get out of the difficulties certain to arise when the war is over is a problem which will test the greatest British statesmanship, and which, for myself, I am convinced British statesmanship will not be able to accomplish. The fight has been from the first for complete sovereignty on the one side and independence on tbe other. The Boers had been making preparations because they knew there were men in England who would never be satisfied until I?ni. latfSiobtaiHabsolulek feofjDUtiH Italian Bishops. Leo, wearing the mitre, uttered the verses of the liturgy and struck three blows with the hammer on the door, which had previously been cut with a saw. A few moments of solemn silence followed, the Pope and the Papal dignitaries in their state robes being grouped before the door. Then the latter swung back and the officials of St. Peter's laved the thresholds and doorposts with holy water, while Leo intoned' the psalm "ubilate Deo," which was taken up by the Pontifical Choir. The Pope, having again covered his head and holding in his right hand a crucifix and in his left a lighted candle, knelt at the threshold amid the strains of "Te Deum." Rising, he stepped alone within the portals of the vast and empty basilica. The cardinals and others followed. At this moment all the church bells in Rome rang out. Leo stopped before the altar of Michael Angelo, where the janitors of the Holy Door for the coming year kissed his feet. He addressed a few words to them on the importance of the ceremony and then proceeded to the altar, where sacrament was offered, folThen, adlowed by a short prayer. vancing on the Sedia Gestatoria to the high altar, he pronounced a solemn benediction, according plenary indulgences.

LEAVES NUGENT, John Stanton Accepts a Position With the Straus Dry Goods House. During the past week the many patn Nugent dry goods rons of the house on Fourth avenue have missed from his desk Mr. John Stanton, one of the oldest and most popular employes of that firm. Over twenty years' ago as a boy he went with the Nugents, and since has risen step by step till he attained .the leading responsible position in the house, which he has long filled to the entire satisfaction of his employers! and their large number of patrons. Mr. Stanton has for years enjoyed the reputation of being one of the most expert and reliable dry goods men in this city, bnt has steadily refused flattering offers from other firms until last week, when he was induced to accept a generous offer from Herman Straus, the Market-stree- t dry goods dealer. This news will be a surprise to many of his friends as well as former. associates, all of whom rejoice over bis preferment and wish him success in bis new sphere, His new employer is fortunate in being able to secure the services of a man of so high a character and one who will add much to his already large trade.

The Hibernian Knights of this city will tender their friends a complimentary reception at Hibernian Hall on Friday evening, January 12, for which a large number of invitations have already been issued, and the committees perfecting the preliminary arrangements will endeavor to make the occasion one to be pleasantly remembered by those who may attend. The Knights will appear in full dress uniform under command.. of Capt. Joe Breen, and during tbe '.evening an exhibition drill will be given. Besides the drill an interesting programme, embracing musical aud vocal selections of a high order, will be presented, to be followed by a bounteous luncheon, after which those who desire may enjoy dancing for a few hours. This company has decided to attend the great Hibernian convention to be held in Boston in May next, and will no doubt present a magnificent appearance. Those who accompany the Knights will be accorded special rates and attention, and that all who desire may take advantage of tbe opportunity recruiU will be received for a short time.

The preparations of the Boers gave a plausible excuse for the policy of the war party in this country, and thus the two parties to the quarrel day by day were stimulating each other. The English Government would have done a wise and noble act if it had offered to refer the whole matter to arbitration and had tendered such nn offer as the first, fruits of the Peace Convention held at The Hague. But that was not in the humor of the men who were pushing things forward on this side, and the result is a prospect of almost illimitable strife. Of course I do not mean that the strife between England and the South African republics will be illimitable. The English War Office will pull itself together somehow before very long and make an end of the resistence offered by the Transvaal republic and the Orange Free State; but what comes then? Whatever may be the formal conditions of peace, we may take it for granted there will be an end of even nominal independence of the South African republics. The Dutch are a majority of Cape Colony, and it is not likely their allegiance to England's sovereignty will be strengthened by the subjugation of their kinsmen. The man who believes the imperialist party in England, be it Tory or Liberal, will leave to these republics any substance of internal independence, is too credulous a person for the atmosphere of modern politics. Therefore this war will, according to my conviction, bequeath to-England a new enemy in the population of South Africa. What a population sprung from such ancestry may do history will tell to future generations. Perhaps Motley's "Rise of the Dutch Republic" may give to anxious students of the present day some help to forecast the possibilities of the years to come.

Our Anglomaniac editors seem to be adepts in British phraseology, doubtless preparing themselves for the realization of their dream of Anglo-Saxounity. They refer to the American people as " American subjects." The American people over a hundred years ago most positively refused to be subjects, claiming by inalienable right every man was a sovereign. They repudiated the government c ideal of king and subjects but founded and have since maintained a government of, for and by the people all sovereigns. In the war of 1 8 1 2 John Bull was forced into abandoning his claim of "once a subject always a subject" and recognize the inalienable right of his subjects to forswear their kiug and become citizens of the United States. The relation of king and subject, lord and vassal, master and serf, have no legal status under our government. The term "subject" has no place in this country, where by law every man, from its chief executive to the humblest, is fully the equal of the other. should be successful in Louisville.

WMmmRm Gas-Lighte- The monthly meeting of the Central Labor Union at Beck's Hall last Sunday was attended by the largest outpouring of delegates and trades unionists that has assembled in this city during the past year, who came together to celebrate in a fitting manner the great victory scored by Louisville at the convention of the Atner ican Federation of Labor at Detroit, and hear the reports of the delegates, details of which were published in these columns last weekt besides nominating officers for the ensuing year. The greatest interest centered in the reports of Walter M. Young and James McGill, the representatives to the Detroit c6nvention, which while verbal were very concise and complete, embracing all the important proceedings sustaining the Central Labor Union, which were this week verified, the national officers of one local union having forwarded orders that unless its delegates were withdrawn from the unrecognized body the charter would be taken away. The reports and the announcement that the next conven tion would be held here created great enthusiasm. Resolutions were passed thanking all those who had in any way contributed toward the bringing ot the convention to Louisville, among them being the Board of Trade, Commercial Club, General Council, Evening Post, Dispatch, Anzei- ger and Kentucky Irish American. The credentials of David Burke, repre senting the Amalgamated Association of Street Railway Employes, and Gus Henry, from the Pavers' and Rammers Union, were received and the delegates admitted. Letters were received from James O'Connell, President of the International Union of Machinists, and R. B. Kerr, Grand Secretary of the International Brotherhood of Blacksmiths, asking the of the Central Labor Union in the forming of local unions of the foregoing trades.

The water keepers noticed a large quauity of tar water flowing into the river as far as Conney-warrcand a considerable number of salmon were seen in a dying condition.

The following article on the enlistment of Irishmen in the British army is taken from the Dubliu Irish People: We do not now discuss the question whether the granting of home rule in '80 or '05 would have rendered the bulk of the Irish people "loyal" in the sense in which loyalty is understood by the jin coes. Home rule a thousand times over would not, as Mr. Davitt told the British to their teeth on the floor of their own Senate house in the heart of their em pire, alter Ireland's love for justice and hatred of odious wrong, But the point we want to make is that the English Imperialists who throw up their hands in horror and astonishment at Ireland's sympathy with the Boers in this conflict and Ireland's grief at the position of her sons who are fighting for England need go no further than their own deeds for an explanation, apart from the wider consideration of the common history and justice of the case of the brave burghers. After a struggle lasting centuries we were reduced to the position to which the British are now striving to drive the Boers. Therefore it is not wonderful that we are against the English as a nation, and that the deeds of Ireland battling in their service fill us not with pride, but with sorrow and shame. "Throughout the whole of rural Ireland," writes a correspondent, "the poorest and humblest laborer in his cottage deems it a disgrace of the direst character whenever 'any one belonging to him' dons the red coat. It is a fact with which I am perfectly familiar that a decent, g small farmer or cottier would prefer to tast the bitterness of death itself rather than know that the son or brother had joined the English army. Often and often I have heard a heart-broke- n mother wail Oh! why didn't you come to tell me he was dead?' when some neighbor broke the terrible news that Mike, or Jerry, or Ned had .gone on a spree' and 'listed for a sol- jdjen.

There is no doubt ,whatever that a very large proportion of Irish Recruits "join the colors" out of the militia regiments. These regiments ore not held in high esteem by the country folk, either. A "militiaman" is a very bitter term of reproach in rural Ireland. From various motives, or from waut of any motive, young "men drift into the militia. The "military" life on the training grounds is very different from the reality as it is forced upon the consciousness of the unhappy wights who take the plunge and enlist straight away. The apparent freedom and jollity of a soldier's career lures, many The possession of arms and a smart uniform fascinates others.

She supports herself in Paris by singing and dancing, and is known ns "The Pearl of Savoy." A young Marquis, nephew of the old roue, disguised as a peasant, wins Marie's love, but the Marchioness forces his consent to wed M'lle D'Albee, a noble lady. Marie from her window sees the wedding procession enter the church. Overcome by emotion, she loses her reason. Pierrot, a former peasant sweetheart, finds Marie thus and leads her back to Savoy where her mother's prayer and influence restores her mind. The young Marquis deserts his noble bride at the church door, seeks out Marie in Savoy, where the reconciliation takes place, and marries "The Pearl of Savoy." This play will require an augmented cast and will be put on with the usual care and detail that marks all the productions at Louisville's most popular play house. INCORPORATED. MAIN-STREE- T 1 WIN BREWERY often was perfectly right, for the coun d lad whotakes his innocent mind. his light heart and his bright spirit into England's service as a private soldier too often returns home bereft of all the faith and the capacity for patience and devoted love which lit up the dark places of poverty and made the hard lot of even the poorest occupant of an Irish cabin en durable. 'He'll never be the same again to me was he to live a thousand years,' I once heard a stricken woman say. Nor could he be. If you asked me what are the main causes of Irish enlistment, especially in rural districts, I would say: "1. Drink.
