by way of Lorenzo Marquez by the German mail line No letter can go out of the Boer republics through British sources as the letters are opened read and destroyed The English control the cables and I have no doubt from what we hear in our camps that the real condition of things never reaches the outside world When the war broke out most of the mine owners speculators managers and even paid officials of the Rhodes clique ran off to Ute Cape just asquickly as trains could carry them The foreigners German French Irish Scotch and outlanders1haveremember that these are the men the

fat salaries for working the mines and the papers for their English bosses It was d1 g atpil- yso far as humanity rand libertyi were coucmedthat Jameson ii4ithdand the rest of them were not strungup after raidWhen the war broke out brigades of foreigners were organized at once The Germans have a brigade of 2000 men or more nearly all men trained in the army in Germany and commanded by men qf their own country trained officers There id a mixed brigade of French Scotch and English who have their own officers and they are doing good We have an Irish brigade of over2600 the majority of whom are men fromCalifornia and the West with quite a sprinkling from the old country and the Cape Our commander is Col Blake a West Pointer who used to be in the regular cavalry at home and a jim dandy a fighter and a tactician that West Point maybe proud of We are getting new men everyday they come in from Lorenzo Marquez and are from every country in Europe and the States The Americans are mostly husky young fellows from the middle West who have served in the Spanish war and the regular army and we have quite a few from around Boston New York and Philadelphia All these fellowsIrish German and Yankget into our brigade for they feel more at home with us under officers and men who have followed the old flag and they are giving the Red Necks as the Doers call them plenty of fun It was our

crowd than that same British army They are mostly pushing the Scotch and Irish regiments against us and we are able to take care of them They may have English regi meats but they keep them balk in

number of visiting Knights were present After the routine work of the branch was completed came the la stallation of the newly elected officers under the guidance of Supreme Trustee Smith who acquitted himself with that grace and dignity for which he is pro verbial He read the ritual to the newly elected officers after which they assumed their respective stations and Secretary Hamel announced that the initiation of Miss Mary Louise Fackler the first lady to be admitted to the Catholic Knights of America in Kentucky was in order That charming and accomplished young lady at once advanced to the presiding officer when her certificate of membership was read and signed Supreme Trus tee Smith then conferred the degree of knighthood in his happy style followed by a neat little speech in which he stated that St Cecilias branch was the one he first visited upon being elected to the office of First Supreme President wish ing to read his letter of acceptance to Rev Father Rock then pastor of the church This branch was one of the oldest in the order and it is but meet that in the natural order of things this initiation should prove as great a success as that which their

impression Among other things she said Brother Knights In response to the very cordial welcome you have given thsIquestion cer airily a pleasure to me to become a mem ber of this esteemed order of Catholic Knights Knights yes such you are and in as praiseworthy a way as were the Knights of old The Knights of Romance ladllovesmanfully regarded the light that Catholicity views your noble cause were little more than paltry Edmund Burke says the age of chivalry is past but as among other courtesies you hold out to us women the prerogative of knighthood itself I feel convinced Jto the contrary

lug the politicians to their fight It is only when partisanism has developed into bigotry or personal in justice or sought to mislead our people into a course unjust and de trimental to themselves that we have interposed to expose the falsehood or defend the individual We are the organ of no politicall party owe none of them anything andexpect nothing from them e indePendenett as a hog on ice Weave fully aware that politicians and those whose interests are political or whose par tisanism blinds their judgment andl blunts their sense of right have disapProvedand even denouncedI r our course For this we care noth ing except so far as they may tendl to influence others in their effort tto serve their political masters thoughI he whose only argument is denun ciation generally has a poor case Our defense if it can be called aI defense of Col John H WhallenI has been criticised to some extentt by indiyivuals who not contentt with disapproving our course have exaggerated misrepresented an l added thereto and heaped abuse upon us and Col Whallen Now we know that many of those zealous advocates of the cause of those under whom they hold their petty political offices contracts or jobs owe their all to the friendship and ofCo1 Whallen in days a tlIt 111 elr enmclln = of him only prove themselves in grates as well as subservient toolsI to those who have no love for the Irishandwill apply a vigorousi kick when they have no further tote for them Of this they will in due time have indisputable proof as the scheme is already under way since the new allies of their masters must be rewarded by something more than has been done for them But as to Col Whallen In politics he Isa politician as shrewd as the shrewdest So long as the attacks on him were political it was none of our affair and we did not interfere But the present effort to besmirch and injure Col Whallen r while due to partisan politics is not politicainor prompted by politics itI is bigoted malice undertaken toI gratify the antiIrish element re cently brought into the camp of theI v Democratic 0 managers of this city This element which for a time controlled the Republicans locally and was kicked out after floundering around have landedI and cs is developed by investigation played an unsavory part in the election in this city Whal leu they hate and delight in anything to his detrimentnot because dfot hiii politics but because of his 1 nfttkmtiUty and religion It is time the Irish regardless of politics i should know this ColWballen has no interest whatever in this paper He owes I us nothing We

worth and benefit to J the community is the superior of r noxsmalf number of his traducers but he is Irish and that is enough to fuatify any assault upon him if J he flares to differ with and refuses to aid the schemes of those who 4 4 now denounce such would persecute him though not Jo lq they sought his advice and assistance in 4 every undertakingp i There may be grounds for the I charges against Col WtutUoi bat 1 p Y the courts will settle that and Col Whallen is as he has always been anxious for a speedy trial The animus has been shown by his ene lilies in exaggerating and misrepre senting the case and in striving iinI every way to defer a trial deprive him of every right and opportunity under the law and to hound and humiliate him Their charge o bribery has after hearing only the prosecuting evidence resulted in an indictment for conspiring to at tempt bribery a misdemeanor and his bond reduced from 10000 to 1000 But even with this he is denied a trial till next Thursday and it is now known it will not occur then The same effort and every tech nicality that able attorneys could devise have been applied to defer even an examining trial of Senator Harrel whom Whallen is charged with attempting to bribe and whom Whallen charges with obtaining money under false pretenses His hearing is set for the 27th but it is not likely to occur them The whole scheme is plainto subject Col Whallen to the humiliation and odium of a criminal under charges provedor man who accused him and all for the sake of gaining some political advantage and gratifying the bigo try of the new recruits who are also led to expect to fill the posi tions held by some of those Irish men now joining in condemnation of W allenro iti c CLw a fR MAY CAUSE A STRIKE We hope not but it is just such action on the part of employers that causes most of the serious labor troubles We allude to the arbi trary refusal of the Louisville City Railway Company officials to meet and confer with representatives of their employes concerning matters mutual between themdespite all assumption to the contrary as much the business of the employes as of the company for both are interested therein The employes presented their request as to hours wages etc in a respectful way and the reply of the company was equally so So far so good But the subsequent refusal of the companys officials to meet the representatives of the employes who do not con sider the answer satisfactory is not only improper but it is unjust to the employes who have been faith ful have conducted themselves or derly and respectfully and it is wrong from every standpoint in thisI country and contrary to every sense of right of the American people President Minarys reasons which he states are those of the Directors are not sufficient to justify their position nor their course They claim that their duty is to manage the affairs of the company for the stockholders who elected them True and they properly exercise the right to speak and act for the stockholders While not specifically denying the right of their employes to organize and act jointly they do so in effect when reusing to meet i and confer with representatives selected and authorized by their em ployes The Directors rightfully protest against interference with its business by outsiders but an emJJ ploye is not an outsider and ris fully J entitled by law and jjustice to a hearing and a voice so far as his relations with the company are con cunedITie denial of that right tb at J ways erased trouble becmode it it denying a legal and jJust tight It j is a tOIl of tarts if not Iin letter I in spirit end such lawlwaMtt ob J the part of mnptoytfli his otped J f i tJ f i- of resorts to violence and is the chief impetus to the spread of socialism and anarchy and the sentiment against corporations which enjoy privileges under the law and use their power to deprive others of their legal rights The right of the employes to be heard through their representatives is precisely the same right on which President binary and the Directors speak and act for the stockholdersthat they have been selected and authorized to do so If President Minary means that the employes have no right tp select and authorize others to represent them then he denies to them aright exercised by the stockholders of the company utterly ignoring the law which makes no distinc tions but recognizes all men as free and equaland in this country all employes are men with rights equal to the employer This point has thefsentiment of the public is con cerned It is true it has cost much of money hardship loss of property life and limb but after all it had to be conceded by those who denied it and we are indeed sorry to note that the officials of the Louisville City Railway Company are among those antiquated behind the times and still refusing to see and under stand the progressive phase of the labor question based upon justice and reason resulting in peace mu tual respect and cooperation of em ployer and employe but prefer to adhere to the ancient idea of master and manthe man silently and pa tiently subservient to the masters willWe hope the railway officials will be induced to forego their ultima tum and treat their employes with the courtesy and justice they de serve If their requests are un just or unreasonable or would be injurious to the interests of the company a friendly conference will easily demonstrate it the requests will be modified the griev ances explained away or remedied all trouble avoided and the relation of the company with its emr P ioYesbecoitiecordi1t- heir h4eeltttk interests are mutual confident that each will treat the other fairly and there will be harmony and good will with a sense of security against strikes or lockouts the cause for which will be removed There can be no harm come from the company agreeing to receive and confer with representatives of its employes and amicably settling differences Much harm not only to the company but to the city and its people may come from its per sisting in its refusal to do so the entire blame for which will rest upon the officials of the railway company And with all due regard corperv ation they have not the right to force a strike with its attendant inconvenience loss disturbance of the peace and men ace to life andproperty of the

wondering whar on airth all that money came from Theres an old saying that Tis well to take time by the forelock so Senator Harl bethought himself of it Much censure is being bestowed on the trailing skirt so dear to most women In England the short walking length is usually preferred and mostly worn But beautiful coquettish France adores the long graceful folds of the flowing train Right now it is condemned from a hy gienic standpoint inasmuch as it picks up all kinds of dirt containing microbes of various diseases Diphtheria typhoid and other genus are caught up by it in its travels through the city but even so it has such a hold on the feminine heart that it is not apt to be given up until it has run its course Most fashions are replacedafter four or five seasons That is conceded to be the limit of duration of any particular style no matter how popu lar it was at first Long skirts were orig inally intended only for carriage wear but the vogue was soon caught up by every one whether possessed of a car riage or not Dame Fashion is a fickle creature and we may expect soon to see the trailing skirt replaced by the sensible but not so graceful walking length The Schreiners issued a

press In a population of 172000 only 2000 are British yet Chamberlain has decreed that in nil official business the English language alone is to be spoken The newspapers are printed in the native tongue of the island and there was no necessity whatever for instituting a change other than the wish to see the English tongue and with it English man ners paramount Yet the English have always been sore against the Boers be cause in their own schools they taught their own language the Dutch Why should they teach the hated English tongue to their children Settlers in a new country can nqt refuse

peculiar to everything English they are striving to take from the Boers not only their land their homes their lives but should they succeed eventually they will wipe out of the Transvaal colony the language of the Dutch race As they made it a penal of fense for the Irish to be taught their mother tongue as they are now doing the Italian people on the Island of Malta so will they do the Boers

doctor It was not counter signed by Dr McNally Neither was it approved by the sick committee Atnoi tion was made to have n special conf mittee to investigate the case The President ruled such a motion out of order and was sustained Then Mul doon brought the suit The laws of the order provide that the standing com mittee shall decide all grievances and that an appeal shall stand from them to the County Board It was shown in the trial that the matter was never brought before the committee and that no appeal was taken The court decided in favor of the division and granted a nonsuit on the ground that Muldoon should have exhausted all the remedies within the order before bringing suit PURCHASER OP MUCKROSS Lord Ardilaun the purchaser of the Muckross estate Killarney states that he had

Meetings are held weekly at Becks Hall ROVING GYPSY The Celt Sarclflcod for the Good of the Whole World Rev Mr Stopford Brooke the newly elected President of the Irish literary Society of London read art eloquent paper onliThe Celt at an open meeting of the society recently The Celt was the rover the gypsy of the world he said This detachment from home had its great disadvantages for him and it partly dis enabled him from becoming a nation But it had its great advantages for the world Man was the better of it It quickened the movement and life of man kind and thus again the Celt had been sacrificed for the good of the whole not of his own will but influenced by a higher will than his It was true that time Celts loved their country dearly but their love was more ideal than actual more a poetic passion than a prose reality They cherished it wrote poems on it wept over the thought of their land but they did not come back to it often The advent of Christianity had enor mously strengthened the Celts love of home and country and they had also been immensely developed by the oppression of England Men loved that for which they had endured pain and woes and for which they bad been oppressed They loved a land which hajt been persecuted tortured and troddeif down but which had never been subdued or lost its courage to live on That men were forced to live apart from their country inflamed their love and the long longing of the exiles from Ireland since St Columbato present daybore wit ness of its intensity For all that how ever he doubted if the love of country was as strong in the Irishman as in the Englishman It was more poetic more passionate in expression The English man returned to his land after long years but the Irishman and the Highlander who had enriched themselves whose money well spent might do so much to help and develop Ireland or the Western Isles were conspicuous by their absence Under every sun in every land and especially in Englishspeaking lands this deep ideal passion lived and grew in the multitudes of the scattered Irish people Millions whose fathers came out of Ire land cherished it It was a mighty power a power which some day would pass out of the ideal into the real out of passion into act and in time to come of which they watched the dawning Ireland would be able under belter laws to de velop her children This great passion would have more widereaching effect in history than we could yet imagine Great political changes were hidden in it He saw Ireland when the Celt came home having learned the lessons of exile a happy home a united people and a race that had realized its nationality However there was another and an in teresting side to this question ThQ per son whom the Celt most damaged by his individuality was himself but he had not damaged the world or mankind by it It had been of the greatest use possible to the progress of the world SELECT HOP AND SOCIAL Invitations are being issued to a select hop aud
