Mr Dillon got a very cor dial from his The Rev Father OConnor of was moved to the chair Among those present were a large number of clergy men and Irish from counties The who was received with cheers said he had attended many mon ster and he could truly say the meeting there was worthy of the best traditions of that district One of the objects of the under the of which they were there was to rescue the people of the country from the apathy and into which they were thrown by the un fortunate split He thought that from the spirit and of the people around the their ruler might learn the lesson that the men of Mayo and Sligo were despite the combined efforts of to make the country a united Ireland once again They were told the other day that the people of Ireland were the dupes ofthe hutted tLSh League Well ri feuoonttifte de tY- a League that was to carry out the of making the people the owners of the soil of Ireland Their as dupes of the United Irish League was much more favorable than the position of the English people as the dupes of Joseph I whose policy had brought disaster on the English nation and disgrace on the Gov erument that guided its destinies He wished the people would stick to this until they had the lands back again in their own hands and so con tribute to make successful their struggle to secure national and Irish liberty After letters of from William OBrien Michael Davitt James OKelly M P and John of Castlerea were read the were passed with 1 That Ireland insists upon her claim for to which she is justly entitled 2 That the settling of the land question being a matter of im portance and urgent to the tenant farmers of Ireland we call upon the at their next session of Par liament to bring in a bill calling for sale to present as the only solid solution of the 3 As the United Irish League is the only1 through which this end can be obtained we pledge ourselves to support it by every means in our power and we call upon every tenant

in this respect the of Ireland the man or men who endeavor to the national cause of Ireland from the cause of free land and the right to live in free door on the soil of their fathers is an enemy of the national cause You can not separate them John who was loudly cheered in the course of an able and address said that it was twenty years ago since he was in that when lie stood upon the of Irishtown with Pamelt and Davitt and they opened the land for the people Since then a great deal bad been done and there was more to be done stodd there again under the old flag with the old cause for

inspiring to look around at that great meeting stand ing on that platform with their illustrious representative John Dillon and with that old veteran of the land war John Fergu son They were told by some factionists that the United League should mind its own business but he said that the United League was not a mere local league or a Connacht league but it was an Irish league and a national league The League put a policy and proposal before the coun try and it placed properly in the first rank Irish legislative independence That was the aspiration of the whole country and not of Connacht alone So were the I other matters included in the League programme and they were not going to listen to the doctrine that the League should be confined to Connacht alone the contrary it should spread through IOn the country Already it had largely succeeded in doing that The UnitedI t League was the true successor of the glorious Land League and the spread of j the League throughout the country had given encouragement and hope totheir friends across the Atlantic I The League was not formed to promote t the personal interest of any man but was an organization of the people for the peoi ple and Mr Dillon spoke truly when he said that there could be no force exercisedt by the people in the House of Commons I until they had a united party behinda I united and organized democracy I Conor OKelly Chairman of the Mayo I County Council said that every day that passed showed the great necessity there j was for such a national organization as the United Irish League They recognized iI two years

concern for the future of this j country The League had completely I balked the political intriguers who bet fore the League was established found the country an ample field for their en terprises I

MONUMENT Grand Memorial Arch For the Chattanooga and Chlck amauga Park TThe Chattanooga and Chickamauga National Park already one of themost beautiful national military parks in the I world is to be still furlhur beautified if t the plans of Gen H V Boynton the zealous and able President of the com I mission arc carried out All the States I which had soldiers engaged on either i side in the battles around Chattanooga now have erected monuments in their honor and various markers to indicate I the positions of thedifferent commands I None of the monuments are more beautiful or have attracted more attention fromi visitors than the union monument erected by the State of Kentucky It was de- sIgned and built by the Muldoon Monu- mentt Company of this city under the supervision of a commission appointed by Gov Bradley consisting of our fellowcit izens Col John H Whallen as President Major Thomas H Hays and Col R M Kelly as Secretary and Col John M II Tuttle of Monticello as Treasurer By j next fall all the State monuments will ii have been finished and Gen Boynton i has planned a grand reunion and inspec I tion for that time at which the Governors of all the States interested and the vari j ous Monument Commissions will go over the ground and see that locations are correct and all things in order The Army of the Cumberland Society and some Confederate associations will meet in Chattanooga about the same time and a great many will be present who par ticipated inthe battles and are familiar with the ground over which they fought I Gen Boynton has further submitted to Congress for appropriation the project toI erect in Chattanooga as an entrance to i the main avenue leading to the battlefields a memorial arch to be arger than the Arch de Triomphe at Paris If this is approved as is most likely it will be one of the great artistic wonders of the coun I try and will be an appropriate finishing touch to the series of parks which nature has made it so easy for art to render at tractiveThe report that Gen Boynton was likely to server his connection with the park work in order to accept an important position happily turns out not to

IRELAND MUST STRIKE A BLOW Miss Maud Gonne roused a great audience in the Academy of Music New York City last Sunday night to the highest pith of enthusiasm during the course of her address which formed the feature of an entertainment given for the benefit of the widows and orphans of Boer soldiers Again and again the walls of theAcademy rang with hisses and cheers as Miss Gonne vehemently denounced the British conduct of the war in the Transvaal The speakers desk was decorated with the Stars and Stripes and the flags of the South African Republic the Orange Free State and Ireland were draped from the proscenium boxes About five hundred men and women occupied the stage and the house was crowded to the doors George W Van Siclen presided and made an opening address in which he denied the contention of the Uitlanders that they had been subjected to Boer op pression He declared that the only per sons in this country antagonistic to the Boers were some American officials whom England had apparently succeed elfin buying and sonic bankers who hav ing securities on the other side did not dare to call their souls their own Cheers greeted Mr Van Siclens declaration that America owed no debt of gratitude to England for her moral support during the Spanish war The whole house rose and cheered tumultuously the Chairman introduced Miss Gonne as a lady who was the em bodiment of Irish

She wore a closefitting cos tume of black velvet with silver orna ments and her golden hair was crowned with a little black toque with a white aigretteOne of the greatest crimes in all history is now being enacted she began in the attempt of a mighty empire led on by lust of gold to destroy the liberties of two struggling republics Her deal ings with them are one long record of oppression and broken faith As far as our sympathies go it matters not to the Irish people whether the republics are right or wrong The fact that they are fighting England makes us their friend Ive known many Irish Uitlanders and they were all treated better in the Trans vaal than in England It has been alleged that the Uitlanders were denied the right of free speech We Irish know what that means Why only a month ago 500 police were mobilized to stop a proBoer meeting in Dublin But we spoke all the same and more than that we flaunted the Transvaal flag right in front of Dublin Castle At this the audience roared with delight and Miss Gonne continued and there were no arrests made simply because England has only 6000 troops in Ireland and she dare not drive the Irish to extremities But the speaker con tinued while we talk nothing is done to succor the Boers Only cowards are will ing to stand by and see a murderer com mit his crime We Irish would save the Boers from our fate If there can be no forcible intervention the civilized world should insist that at least the rules of civilized warfare are respected These the English violate continually They murdered wounded Dervishes in Egypt and they have boasted of similar crimes committed bathe Boers who were either wounded or outnumbered and sur rended I have seen in British barracks placards designed to incite British sol diers to just such murderous deeds by false stories of Boer atrocities Englands methods of warfare have not changed since she turned loose the red savages armed with scalping knife and tomahawk to make savage war on the American colonistsMiss Gonne then read many extracts from letters of British soldiers in which the soldiers boasted of refusing to give quarter to the Boers at glands Laagtc and elsewhere But that she con tinued was early in the struggle and now there are so many thousand British prisoners at Pretoria that proba bly England will not dare to murder r Boerat least openly for fear of bloody

words were the last that passed the lips of the brave loyal and fearless champion of the common people William Goebel Governor of Kentuckylast Saturday when as the shades of evening were deepening into night the soul of the brave martyrpassed to his reward in that great beyond where trials and tribulations are unknown and eternal and celestial bliss reign supreme He died as he lived with no thought for himself but only for the State and the people for whom he gave up his life without a single regret Even to the last he retained that indomitable will power and grandeur of intellect which his bitterest political enemies could not help but admire and thus early in his public career was cut short the life of a statesman that stood the equal of any public man in this grand old State with the will and ability to have made one of the greatest chief executives Kentucky has ever known and to take a place among the nations most noted men for the depth of William Goebels capacity had not been measured yet Courageous to the last he urged his friends and followers never to give up to proceed by law and push their claims but under no circumstances to resort to violence or bloodshed Twelve years ago when Gov Goebel came to Frank fortto sefvehts first term as State Sena Cbrfffiecl wasaltmctCd qYhIs supe riorityof intellect and recognized ability as a legislator and his apparent high mor ality of character and during the years that he was at intervals in Frankfort he only strengthened this high feeling of respect and regard From the beginning of his career he opposed the encroach ments of corporate power upon the common people of the State and thereby incurred the bitter enmity of the most corrupt and powerful corporation in the State He was a power in politics and was well known as an organizer of abil ity amounting to genius In private life he was dominated by the same traits that shaped his public career Gov Goebel became a leader whom cor porations could neither bully nor buy They had to cause him to be killed and like the blowing up of the Maine in Havana harbor his death will be the signal for just such retribution to them as came to Spain William Goebel was a loving and faithful son a kind and ten der brother a true aud loyal friend even uuto death By his death the great com mon people of Kentucky lost one of the grandest ablest and most untiring cham pions of their cause that Kentucky has ever known He is dead but his good deeds will remain a living monument to his devotion to them and his fight for their rights Never in the history of Frankfort or the State did such a large concourse of peo pIe turn out to pay their last respects to the dead No public man not even a Presidentreceived the telegrams of sym pathy that Justus and

agreement on some acceptable man The names mentioned were Timothy Harring ton John Redmond John Clancy and Capt Donlan Before the meeting ad journed John Redmond the ParnelHte leader member of Parliament for Water ford City was unanimously elected Chairman of the United Irish Nationalist partyThe attitude of the party toward the United Irish League is au important consideration yet undetermined but the Dilloaites and Redmondites are believed to be ready to adopt the League as a party organization Money is pouring into the funds and even in a few days the united front of the in i reiT 1 TO Michael Davitta weekly cable from Dublin to theIrish World says the union of the Irish Parliamentary factions just accomplished ends the disgraceful dissensions of the last ten years in the na tional politics of Ireland This happy result is due solely to the work of the United Irish League which has united the country and killed disunion There are yet in the Irish Parliamentary party many members who are not sound Nationalists and whose only motive in uniting was the hope of saving their seats in Westminster LeagueinThe facts ought not to be withheld from them They should know that the na tional organization exists for the purpose of building up a worldwide combination of the whole Irish race to obtain national government for the Irish nation and this the United Irish League proposes to do not through the labors of the party in the London Parliament but through the international power and influence of the race operating on Land League lines The Parliamentary party is not to con trol the League but it will receive the support of the national organization if it proves itself worthy in this work and in the character of its membership The London Times demands the suppression of the United Irish League on the ground of its resemblance to the Land League and the support that is being given it by the Irish World The victory for Irish unity and against factiquism disconcerts the enemies of Ireland and naturally in tensifies their hatred of the United Irish League JEFFERSONVILLE The Hibernians Have Secured Elegant and Commodi ous Quarters Division 1 of the

UNITED The United Irish party so far as the Parliamentary leaders are con cerned seems to be an accomplished fact In the midst of contro versy and uncertainty as to the out come the Irish leaders suddenly find themselves agreed and im prove the opportunity by immedi ately electing a chairman and that unanimously and the Irish party is now a united factor in Parlia ment This simply proves that where there is a will there is a way and no one has ever seriously doubted there was a will however antagonistic the Irish leaders may have appeared at limes Besides when the people their constituents harmonize and unite it could only be a question ofa short time till the leaders must do so and that they have done so without friction in so short a time is creditable to them and gives promise of much good for Ireland and her people the real hearts desire of every Irishman after all INVOLVED IN MYSTERY The shooting of Senator Goebel is still involved in mystery and the officials are reticent The propriety of this is fully recognized until they have a decided clew to the guilty r party The autopsy however seems to dispose of the theory that the shot was fired from any window of the Executive building as iit I entered the right breast passed through the body and came out to b1b tot thespine dei acting ass than two inches The first floor of the Executive building is several feet higher than where Mr Goebel was when shot The range of the shot indicates that it was fired by ia person about on a level with or very r little above Mr Goebel Mr Charltons statement that the report sounded as if it came horn the open space between the Capitol and Executive buildings seems ver ified by the autopsy The directipn and range of the shot seem to make it conclusive that the assassin stood on the steps leading to the north door on the west side of the Execu five building facing the Capitol u Accurate measurements may vary this some but not much There is but one window from which the shot could possibly have been fired the office of Secretary of State on first floorbut this seems to be too high up o OUGHT TO PASS City Assessor Murphy will en deavor to have the Legislature pass an amendment to the city charter ti providing for the payment of street and other public improvements by property holders by notes at legal rate of interest when they are un able to pay cash This will prove a benefit to all and especially to small property owners many of whom are often sorely burdened and often eventually forced to Sacrifice their homes to pay for pubis improvements Under the plan fproposed they will be given several i rsat 6 per cent interest and tut relieved of the alternative of coming tribute pAyers to shy ksv or being sold out Besides airacforg will be likely to do the jrk cheaper since prompt pay- tI will be thus assured as ch notes can be readily cashed at nkj and again the proPerty iTblderj even those able to pay the cash will be benefited by the red aced cost of public improvements The courts too will be relieved of such litigation The only sufferer ml he can well be spared will be i shylock who fattens on other Iplea lack of ready money The ought to pass

sturdy people and the only progress wisdom and discretion in England affairs in that time have generally originated in the House of Com mons and been forced upon the House of Lords In the past twen

same diplo matic bungling has brought humil iation and loss of prestige far more disastrous to England than the defeats on the field at the hands of the Boers Her seizure of American flour of Italian sulphur of neutral property the intercepting and searching of German mail and detainI canal all were in violation of neu trality law provoking protest from the governments of those countries necessitating surrender of goods release of ships explanation and apology by the English Govern mentThe monotonous disasters of the campaign in South Africa are like wise due to inefficiency in the war office at London With 180000 men 500 guns of all calibres arms ammunition transports and sup plies unlimited and uninterrupted disciplined troops commanded by brave and capable officers pitted against a greatly inferior force with limited and interrupted resources without discipline or experience confessedly no match for the Eng lash troops the most crushing reverses and failure result The surprise at firstcaused by this has after thoughtful consideration demonstrated that the officers in command in the fields though corn poutad broe M1 their troops moetly veterans and gallant sol dieD

the topography of the country nature of the climate the strength and resources of the foeto be candid were ignorant and incapable to con trol plan and direct the military affairs of the Government The same senility whichis aboutt the proper word pervades all the departments of the English Govern ment and this has been so clearly exposed to view by recent events that England can not expect to be hereafter respected and most cer tainly not feared as a firstclass power for conceding as she claims wealth army navy resources and a patriotic people with an effem inate and degenerate class to con trol manage and direct it can only result in loss of life waste of treas ure defeat and humiliation as has been witnessed in the brief cam poise with an insignificant power but with a strong power more com plete and destructive History repeats itself England is afflicted in a most virulent form with the disease that has been fatal to all nations has caused the disin tegration and downfall of all others and she can not hopeto be an excep coleonies which have diverted atten tion given new fields for enterprise and sources of revenue and wealth to her people the dangers of inter nal discontent and revolt have been averted and with no one to seri pusly dispute her foreign policy she has escaped danger from abroad but in all that time the canker has grown her nobility have become more dissipated and reckless more extravagant and arrogant and weaker mentally and physically with but little of morals and recti tude to speak of Such a class even backed by wealth and force can not

Great Struggle for Political Supremacy Lastctl for Eight Years There Were Thou Two Courts of Appeals and Party Strife Was Furious ALL THE STATE OFFICIALS INVOLVED History repeats itself and the history of Kentucky is no exception to the rule This is not the first time Kentucky has been disturbed by partisan resort to un constitutional and revolutionary methods and the study of the first occasion when that happened will show that escape may be found from the present complication without resort to violence During the long series of wars which followed the French revolution gold and silver had practically disappeared from circulation and had been replaced by an inflated paper currency which caused a great rise in the nominal prices of everything When Napoleon was finally overthrown anti peace restored the general resumptroaolapeiie t9and the return of Europe to industrial pursuits caused agreat fall in prices The situa tion was made worse in this country by a reduction of our tariff duties and bank ruptcy became general- In the legislative session of 181718 an attempt to relieve the people of Kentucky was made by chartering forty independ ent banks which were speedily organized and soon flooded the State with their notes which they were allowed to re deem in notes of the Bank of Kentucky instead of in specie The Bank of Ken tucky had resumed specie payments and its credit stood high The managers of the forty new banks were generally with out knowledge of finance or experience in banking and some of them lacked honesty Large loans were rashly made Speculation of all sorts became rife and the natural consequences followed The speculative people burst by the end of two years most of the new banks had failed and the charters of all were soon after revoked The pressure of debt on the people then became terrible and at the session of 181020 the Legislature ex tended the power to replevy judgmentsI fro three months to twelve The cry of the people was for mor indncy and u large majority of the legislators and the Governor chosen in 1820 were pledged to sonic measure of relief At the session of 182021 the Legislature chartered the Bank of the Commonwealth whose business it was to make money plenty It was saved from danger of sus pension by not being required to redeemI its notes in specie Its notes were made receivable for all taxes and debts due the State and some lands owned by the State west of the Tennessee were pledged for their ultimate redemption Creditors were required to take its notes in payment of debts due them and iif they refused the debtor was allowed toI replevy his debt for two years At the same session the Legislature exercised the power reserved to it by the charter of the Bank of Kentucky and elected a majority of the directors of tha institution pledged beforehand to receive notes of the Sank of the Commonwealth I for debts due the Bank of Kentucky The new board displaced the conservative President and Directors and at once be gan to carry out the policy to which they were pledged The immediate effect wasI to strike down the price of the stock pf the Bank of Kentucky to half its nomuial1 value and entail upon it a suspension o specie payments The paper of the Ilan of the Commonwealth speedily sank t half its nominal value and creditors lia the choice of two evils They could take half their debts in payment of the whole or they could wait two years and then risk new delays and the insolvency of sureties This wholesale confiscation o property arduscd excltenentaud the people were soon divided into Relief and Antirelief parties The question of the power of the Legisla ture to pus the act war soon brought before the Circuit Courts Judge Clark la the Bourbon Circuit Ctattiina case brought before him boldly declared the act unconstitutional end brought on him self n tempest of indignation 1 He w Huaoumed to appear before a = sion of the Legislature convened in the spring of 1822 and violent efforts to Intimidate him or remove him from office by address were made Judge Clark de fended his position with ability and firm ness and partly from want of a consitu tional majority and partly from the sug gestion that a decision of the Court of Appeals should bewaited for the storm blew over leaving the Judge in his place He adhered to his decision and was soon supported by Judge Blair of the Fayette Circuit Court in a strong opinion The Court of Appeals then consisted of John Boyle Chief Justice and William Owsley and Benjamin Mills Associate Judges The question came before then at the full term of 1823 in the case of Lapsley vs Brashear They gave their opinion at length and concurred with their brethren of the Circuit Court that the act of the Legislature was in conflict with the Constitution of the United States as impairing the obligation of con tracts and was totally null and void This decision caused a great sensation and the strife of parties raged with in creased fury f The judiciary then held office during good behavior tfo remove them from office required thevote of twothirds of the members of each house of the Legis lature The canvass of 1824 was con ducted by the Relief party with the hope of obtaining this majority Their candi date for Governor Gen Joseph Desha was elected by a large majority and a large majority in both houses were of the Relief party The Judges were sum moned before the Legislature and assignedreasons at length for their de cision Their position was combatted ably by such raen JaR Rowan Ba A vote war i two thltd8 t c ul tet0 acne The minority were jubilant but the exasperated ma jority renewed their attack from another direction They could not remove the Judges for lack of the constitutional ma jority but they ha sufficient majority to repeal the act organizing the Court of Appeals and a bill to that effect and pro viding for a new court was introduced It was debated with great heat and vigor for three days and three protracted night sessions andjpassed both houses by large majorities 3No time was lost in organizing a new Court of Appeals which consisted of four Judges William T Barry was Chief Justice and John Trimble James Haggiu and R II Davidge were Associate Judges Francis P Blair was app nteml Clerk and took forcible possession of the records of Achilles Sneed the old Clerk The old court denied the constitution ality of the action of the Legislature and continued to sit and hear such cases as were brought beforp them A majority of the Circuit Judges obeyed their man dates as if no reorganizing act had been passed A great majority of the bar off Kentucky recognized them as the true appeael cases wer taken before the new court and a num ber of the Circuit Judges refused to recog nize the old court A lew Circuit Judges a obeyed both courts refusing to decide between them The people thre AntlreliefIparties were merged into New Court an Old Court partiesand the legislative can vass of 1825 was marked by an excite ment never surpassed The Old Cou party triumphed electing a large ma jority of the House of Representatives I and a majority ofthe Senators chosen but the number of holdover Senators left the Senate still with a New Court ma jority The reorganization act could not be repealed andthe canvass pf 1820 saw both parties arranged for a struggle for Coutrt party again reorganizing act was repealed over the veto of the Governor and the three old Judges were reestablished Their salaries were voted them for the perlodoff their forcible and illegal removal and
