PRICE FIVE LENTS IRISH GROSS theFLate Patrick William Nail Thousands Listen to Patrick OBrien M P trial Dr Mark Ryan He Was Always a Stanch anti SelfSacrificing1 and True Nationalist DID GOOD SERVICE FOR IRELAND r On Saturday January 51i the little village of Bella in the County Mayo was the scene of an interesting ceremony when a magnificent cross erected there to the memory of the late Patrick William Nally whose tragic end in Mountjoy prison will be remembered by many in this country was publicly unveiled Balla is the birth placeof Nally who was one of the stanchest and most selfsacrificing of Irish Nationalists Having nothing to gain and much to lose he threw his ener gies into the movement for the betterment of the condition of bis fellowcountry men But his career was cut short Ar rested on a charge which those who knew him best believe him to have had no con nection with he was sentenced to a long term of imprisonment The severity of prison life told severely upon his health but he bore it all uncomplainingly and although his intended release was actual lyannouncedand preparations made to welcome him the end came suddenly and death overtook him before he was given the opportunity of again seeing home and friends The idea of erecting a monument to his memory received the support of all who knew him and today there stands in his native town one of the most striking memorials of the kind to be found anywhere in Ireland It is a solid limestone cross beautifully finished Tlie monument stands seventeen feet high and is six feet square at the bottom base the material of best Ballinasloe limestone Thg cross is in one stone thirteen feet high and five fee atarms tlenttlJ Qi1Cii- on front endsides The Isglifesize sculptured in full relief on the front of the cross the wolfdog and harp are also shown An old round tower is carved on the back of the cross with the ivy entwined around it Shamrocks and ferns are shown at the base of the tower It was unveiled in the presence of an im mense gathering From an early hour people began to troop into the village and when the ceremony of unveiling took place some thousands were present Dr Mark Ryan of London attended special ly to perform the ceremony and the speakers at the meeting were Messrs Pat OBrien M P Mr Barrett of Man chester Mr Flateley and Mr Kirwan of Ballinrobe Thomas B Kelly of Ballina to whose untiring energies are in a large measure due the success which attended the movement and the erection of the memorial presided There were six bauds present and large delegations from every part of the country The Chairman in opening the proceed ings said that when nine years ago a tes timonial was got up to present Mr Nally on his release from prison they little expected that his death would have taken place so soon They had hoped to meet him at the prison doors and welcome him back to liberty but within fourteen days after his release was announced they had the sad task of bearing his remains to Glasnevin Today they were unveiling a monument to his memory which would stand as a landmark for the young men of the country and which was a proof that the Irish people would revere and venerate the man who did good service for his country To his mind no man for the last 100 years had sacrificed more for his country in such an unselfish manner than Patrick Nally He was a man with good prospects but he sacrificed all for the love of Ireland The Chairman then asked Dr Ryan of London to address the meeting- Dr Mark Ryansaid he had come from London to honor and revere the memory of Patrick William Nally His labors his sacrifices and his sufferings as well as the manner in which heteas done to death were too well known to need repe tition He had the pleasure of knowing him iutimately and never knew a more manly patriot or more honorable man one who longed for the opportunity of shaking off the yoke of the foreigner He might have submitted to the enemies of his race and lived a life of ease and bond age but he was cast in a heroic mold but he was true to Ireland and chose to take sides with his countrymen who were working for the good of the coun try Prom the time be took up the na tional cross he never ceased to preach tie true gospel of patriotism The British Government trumped up abogas charge I 0 against him and be was arrested and im prisoned on a charge with which he had nothing todoWhile in prison he was tortured in the usual way in which Irish political prboIaare treated and that torture continued until be wudoae to death The utmost was done to blacken his character in the eyes of the world 1 but Irishmen were there today to feouor his memory and Irishmen would ber hto with pride And would JRtHAMERICAN never rest satisfied until the cause for which he died had triumphed They should take a lesson from the Boers whose whole population did not exceed 250000 and yet they had scattered a half a dozen English armies But the Boers were united and in earnest Whether Irish men were united or not on every subject they should at least join hands in directing their energies and resources against the common enemy and by working to gether all over the world they ought soon to have Ireland for the Irish Dr Ryan then proceeded to unveil the monument which he said would stand as a testimony to the work and patriotism of P W Nally and his name and memory would long be cherished by those who knew he lovedand worked for Ireland On the cross being unvailed loud cheers were raised Mr Regan of Ballinrobe then read the following resolution which he said would be spoken to by several prominent speakersResolved That on the public unveil ing of this monument to the memory of P W Nally we wish to place on record our devotion to the ideals for which he fought suffered and diedIreland a free nation mistress of her own destiniesand- we pledge ourselves to follow the ex amples bequeathed to us by our martyred patriot brother to give effect to his ster ling principles of national faith in the confident hope that the day will yet come which will witness their vindication and show that he and those like him who sacrificed their lives for country have not made that sacrifice in vain Pat OBrien M P who was received with prolonged cheers said it was a great pleasure to him to be there as the humble representative of the Parliamentary party with which he was associated to tell them in their name that they too were heart and soul with them in the splendid work they were doing for the national cause and he was also glad to be there to congratulate them on the fine monu ment they were unvailing to Mr Nally and on the splendid example they were setting to other parts of Irelandwhere the people might with advantage imitate the example of the people of Balla He saw Mr Nally dead in his cell in Mount joy prison and looking upon him there he thought that lonely as he was a lesson would go out from that cell to the young men of Ireland and he was now glad to find that Nallys example was not lost upon the people for he was sure there were listening to him many young men who like him would take up and stand by the national cause throughweal and woe Altlao itithe o cell Jthe tkiltkilshgallowsnrlgiiti be therrreward so far as this world was concerned their memory would live in the hearts of the people and would not only encourage those who were fighting the cause but would be a glorious example to the young men they saw around them to be true to Ireland and have no meddling with the British garrison who were destroying their country It was all the more necessary to say this at this par ticular moment when they knew that the despoiler of their country was going about with his gold to bribe into his serv ice the young manhood of Ireland and ship them to the Transvaal to fight against the people of the two republics who before God and world were rightly struggling to be free It was all very well for England in her day of power to drive the peasants from the lands of Mayo but England was now in a death grip She saw her danger and now the English have learned how much better iit would have been to have left the people on the land It was all very well for the landlord class to talk cheap loyalty in the clubs of the country but let them now go out to the Transvaal and prove their loyalty There were at present 15 000 policemen in this country three thousand of whom would do all the duty that was required and if the Government was in a corner for men he would suggest to them that 12000 of these policemen were dying to go to the front and if they were not dying to go out all their profes sions about being a loyal and royal con stabulary were false and if necessary he would help the Government to pass a little act to send them out To the young men of Ireland who contemplated going to the Transvaal at the bidding of England to help in this unjust war to kill a people rightly struggling to be free he would only repeat what the old Cork woman had said to her son Goodbye and may the Lord have mercy pn you Regarding Mr Nally in whose memory they had erected the cross which was just unveiled he said his example was to suffer torture and imprisonment without a murmur he had given the greatest test a man could give of his fidelity to the cause by giving up his young life for it and in the resolution they pledged them selves to give effect to his principles The way to do that was to act as he acted to keep the national spirit alive and teach the young idea about them bow it should follow his example They could teach them how to think and think for Irelend only and they had only to wait their opporituaity which he believed was nearer than anyof them thought when they might be able to do a little more than think and pray for Ireland Pat Rallys memory aud example were set as a monument in every Irish heart in every part of the world and that monument would never be tumbled down until before it went the accursed structure of British misrule in Inland On the question of unity he was glad to yOI the IntUitive of Mr JUdmoud an effort would be made Jo unite

they are neither just nor eco nomical and likely tp result in liti gation loss and additional expense It is also questionable whether the Council has the authority to specify the officials employes and salaries of the Boards of Safety and Public Works under the law but as the Council was advised by the City Attorney they are blameless as to this legal point There are other serious defects however for which the Council is responsible It is not necessary to mention all some of which savor of parsimony but r the most glaring are the curtailing t of the police and fire departments abolition of Police Matron and failure to provide for the removal of garbageThe of the police and fire departments should not have been reduced The suburbs are entitled in equity for their taxes to addi tional fire protection besides the city is bound under the terms of annexation to provide it and in ac cordance therewith has purchased ground built two engine houses and contracted for two engines etc but the new ordinances make no provision or appropriation for manning them and those suburbs will continue without fire protection The taxpayers there have grounds for suit against the city for viola tion off contract besides in case of h Jlye cif asatlidblefor 1 ryrdamages t Decency requires a Police Matron IIatthe Central Station as well as at the jail and the plea of saving the I salary of 480 a year will not justify abolishing the office An ordinance prohibits residents from dumping ashes and garbage in the streets alleys lots or on their premises and requires them 1 to place such on the sidewalk to be taken away by the city The new ordinances make neither provision nor appropriation for this Only one hostler is provided to care for the horses of the mounted police As these police beats are in the extreme eastern southern and western suburbs it is clear there is i neither economy nor sense in this It seems the object of the ordi nances is to make political capital by a pretense of economy and so hampering the departments that t they can not efficiently discharge duties and then seek to hold them liable therefor There is too much Booker Reed ism in the ordinances The people got enough of it during his term as Mayor and expressed their disap proval by defeating him when he again became a candidate The Jpeople want economy but not that kind The Mayor should veto the ordinances and the Council should I remedy their defects The people pay taxes to have them expended as prescribed by law for their protection convenience and comfort D not to have a

gentlemanly reasonable and peace ful course of the employes has earned the admiration of the public and w are certain the railway of ficials think better of them and of organized labor than they did for it was members of other labor or ganizations outsiders as the rail way officials designated them who advised and urged the course pur sued not that the railway em ployes were at any time disposed to do otherwise for they were not and readily and faithfully complied with the advice given but as a new and inexperienced organization they are entitled to credit for adopting the wise and proper course and also demonstrates that the ideas of the city railway officials and many other employers have of organized labor and its leaders are wrong They are not agitators and dis turbers seeking to dictate and rule the business of employers but only justice for employes not disregard ing rights and property of employers but urging respect for them not advocating strikes and violence but

employes to each other as their interests are mutual Employes seeking redress of grievance in this spirit and along this line will have the support of organized labor but if they proceed on a course of ar bitrariness strike andviolence they go it alone if really they do not encounter the opposition of or ganized labor- Organized labor has made many mistakes in the past and while it has profited by the experience the odium of them still lingers and has its injurious influence on the minds of employers We therefore do not condemn the city railway of ficials for being apprehensive sus picious and even unwilling to promptly trust organized labor But they have certainly seen it clearly demonstrated by their em ployes that those fears are ground less No men ever acted more orderly decently and respectfully under such circumstances and it can safely be assured they will be just as honorable and faithful in complying with any agreement with the company in the future With such employes the city railway company will never have a strike or lockout or any serious difficulty without being itself solely to blame We know the men and their con duct thus far attests we are correct in our estimate of them Let the city railway trust them fully treat them fairly and it will have cause only for congratulation in future The Louisville City Raiway Com pany of nil corporations in this city has no cause for illwill to ward organized labor on the con trary it is under obligations to or gaqized labor for preventing trouble annoyances and litigation by refusing to sanction or be a party thereto The officials are fully aware of what we allude to though they may not know of the efforts of iits enemies to induce organized tileIlChemeet ganixed labor to do so killed the1 reforms whirl were agitated on one or another oretext in the pI few years We trust they will ap preciate the true character and ob jects of organized labor enter into closer relations with it through their employes and thus insure peace and prosperity to the com pany and its employes and earn the good will of the public DROPPED THE HOT BRICK We stated that the politicans who preferred charges of bribery against Col John H Whallen had picked up a hot brick and were only anxious for a chance to drop it They got the chance end dropped it instanter Wednesday Col Whallens attorneys filed a motion to quash the indictment on ground that the grand jury was not proper ly drawn and were partisan The prosecuting attorney surprised ev ery one except possibly the prosecutors by instantly filing a like motion which Judge Cantrill granted and remanded the case to the next grand jury at the April term and it will probably not be heard of again In the Legislature the same farcical course is pursuedorrather the prosecutors have stopped short After adopting a resolution to ap point a joint committee to investi gate Whallens bribery of a mem ber they have done nothing the committee being still unnamed The whole plot has failed and the tables are turned Col Whal len is already vindicated even if the efforts of his enemies to prevent his having a trial and formal ac quittal are successful They will now resort to every scheme to save Harrel their tool from the prose cution which Whallen has started agaiust him not that they care any thing for Harrel but because a trial means an exposure of the whole game and who are the real in stigators managers and prospective beneficiaries of this malicious per version of justice and farcical pro ceedings under the color of law The real guilty parties are now on the defensive and some of them J aran exposurrmore thaithe danger ofa conviction and the lpen- alties f Harrels case is due Saturday in the Police Court in this city If it can possibly be averted there will be no hearing even if Harrel has to waive examination to stave it off Rev Father Patrick OBrien of Toledo says the souls of British soldiers killed in South Africa will be lost as according to Catholic theology soldiers engaged in an unjust war can not lawfully kill an enemy even selfdefenseTimes- The Times is fully aware that the above is not Catholic theology further that no one but a fanatic would utter such gibberish and Father OBrien being a man of national repute for his learning ability eloquence liberality and charity did not utter such senti ments It is only another of the Times gratuitous insults to Irish Catholics to tickle its patriotic American citizens who define patriotism to be denunciation and ostracism of foreigners and Catho lics and hurrahing for England As they thus demonstrate their Orangeism so the Times exposes its Knownothingism Birds of a feather will flock together- In providing for printing the census report under pretense that the Government Printing Office could not get it done in time it was proposed to have some of it done by contract Typographical Union and the Government Printing Office officials opposed this but as it was approved as an emergency clause by the committee the typos through their friends in Congress insisted the bidding should be limited to union offices to which the committee agreed In this shape it was presented to the House The discussion developed that the committee did not insist on the emergency clause and also gave the economy and anticlass cranks a chance to air themselves Mr Sims of Tennessee said

and remember They loved the Boer not for his personal merits but be cause he was an enemy of their enemy but they loved Ireland more they still remembered the peasantry of Ireland were little better than mere serfs upon the soil and theirfirst duty was to take the example and advice of Daniel OCon nell and to makes Englands difficulty Irelands opportunity They were de termined to unite for this

of Cornelius Meagher Who Was Universally Liked Special KentuckyIriSh FRANKFORT KY Jan 2GThe hor rible tragedy enacted in the lobby of the Capital Hotel in this city last week has served to draw the eyes of not only all Kentucky but the entire United States upon Frankfort Another stain has been entered upon the escutcheon of Old Ken tucky and proves that she has well earned the title of the dark and bloody ground Every good citizen hopes it may end here and that the fair city among the hills will not again be stirred with a bloody fued or riot as has been predicted by the Republicans for weeks past Let the men who are so loud in the cries of law and order put away their guns and resolve to do nothing to incite riot and peace will prevail and bloodshed be arrested But should there be bloodshed and riot it will not be the Democratic sympathizers that will start it but members of the party that has always claimed to be for law and order and good citizenship At the present writing there is no probability that there will be trouble and it is now thought that wise and earnest counsel will prevail and everything pass off peacefully regardless of what the Legis latures decision may be The funeral of Cornelius Meagher son of Mr and Mrs Dan Meagher Sr took place last week from the Church of the Good Shepherd lRev iS Majorofficiat lags Tatdt se if vasfavrolLCrvf Messrs John M J
