the white winged dove of peace was hovering over the little city among the hills and its citizens were silently con gratulating themselves that the usurper had at last come partially to his senses and intended to act even at the eleventh hour rationally contingent of mountain sharpshooters again invaded the city to I the number of seventyfive or eighty But up to the present writing no one has been assassinated although there is no certainty at what moment it may occur The report of smallpox on the Square last Saturday caused consternation for a while but now it is emphatically denied that there is anything in the report Defacto Adjt Gen Collier left the city last week and it is not known when he wilrreturn if at all The recognition of Gov Beckham by Republican Gov Tan ner of Illinois has caused King Taylor I and his cohorts to realize that the fire is out1 and it remains for them to resist by force of arms the mandates of the courts as soon as given and become in reality what they have been acting for the past few monthsoutlaws The bill appropriating 100000 for the arrest and con viction of the assassin of Gov William Goebel has now passed both houses of the General Assembly and will become a law as soon as Gov Beckham affixes his signature The arrest of the guilty party is probably not far distant and the most dastardly and coldbloodedassassination of one of the bravest

Eloquent and Interesting Addresses FREQUENT IMEETINGS RECOMMENDED The Catholic Club an organization of which the Catholics of this city may well feel proud enjoyed a reunion at the Louisville Hotel Monday evening Through the courtesy of the genial manager Mr George Mulligan the dining hall of the hotel was thrown open to the club and its guests and an elegant repast was spread Among the thirtyodd per sons present were noted the following gentlemen Messrs Edward J McDer mott President J W Jenkins Scere tary John J Hines Treasurer J J Caffery Owen McConn Matt ODoherty John Silberg Joseph Schildt P E Henchey members of the Board of Directors Prank Geher John P Cassilly Thomas Walsh Matt J Winn Dr H D Rodman Charles OMalley Dillon Mapother John Barrett Richard G Shanley W D Harris J F Moran Jerry Bacon George Mulligan Lon Lavely Dr J W Fowler C R OBrien J B Ohllgschlager L ABell Joseph McWilliams and John L Deppen After several courses had been served Hon Edward J McDermott President of the club made a few remarks pertaining to its objects upon the conclusion of which he called on those present for impromptu talks Rev Charles P Raffo of St Charles church and Rev Thomas W White of Clifton graced the occasion by their presence The guest of honor was John Hulme a graduate of Oxford and a member of several prominent Catholic societies of London who is sojourning in ills count J iiijrl1i rfits CWtd WHK thewcll knowu poet wasalsoaatiiitvtid guest Rev lather Raffo eulogized the club and its work in a very enthusiastic speech He made a valuable suggestion to the club towards taking advantage of the position it occupied and contributing to the religious newspapers a colum each week touching Catholic dogmas and principles not of a controversial nature but simply the elementary truths with which every fairly educated Catholic is supposed to be familiar His suggestion if carried out would do a great deal toward dissipating the erroneous notions prevailing even among otherwise well informed nonCatholics in regard to the beliefs and teachings of the church and be very instructive to Catholics themselvesJohn was asked to tell why it was that undertakers are supposed to be the most cheerful persons on earth While somewhat confused at the unex pected call Mr Barrett by his happy response showed that the appellation in his particular case was well merited Mr Mapother gave an interesting account of the work 6f the Truth Society In England and also some features of the undertakings of the society while it flour ished here It seems to be the honest endeavors of the members of the club to take the place which the Truth Society in this city was originally intended to fill and said the amount of good tobe derived therefrom can not be overestimated Mr Hulme who was the principal speaker of the evening told of the won derful work accomplished by the Catholic societies in England stating that the Catholics there occupied a position which in a way made them masters of the situation in any critical political crisis He also told of the several Catholic Lord Mayors of London who have lately been elected and other high Government offi cials who belonged to the church The Catholics in England who pay taxes have realized the practical operation of the principle that any one who pays taxes for educational purposes has a right to say what religious education his childshall receive Mr Hulme was given close attention and made a most favorable impression upon those present After leaving this city the distinguished visitor will deliver lectures in a number of lead lag colleges and universities closing with his series at the Catholic Winter School at New Orleans Hon Matt ODoherty suggested some convincing reasons why the Catholic Club should as a body and as individuals strive to disseminate Catholic truth cit ing instances within his personal know ledge of gross misrepresentation and ignorance by Catholics and nonCatholics in reference thereto Dr J W Fowler who was the former President of the club stated that it should be the aim of the Catholic sod eties of the city to erect a magnificent building to cat J100000 U a monument to Catholic veal and that In hi opinion from bia knowledge and acquaintance with the Catholic in Louisville it would be an eyteak While the club did not pretend to bn

crowds oflliien that gathered nightly at the Domijilcatt church during the late mission were referred to as an evidence of the true Plrlt of Catholicity that pervaded the frank and file of the laity It was the infetioni of the club to have these meetingsjSftener in the future and to gradually increaseits membership not with an eye solely to numbers but mainly to securing those whose intel lectual positions war such as to reflect credit on the churchV and whose services would be as gladly sought as given in pro moting the interests f the church when ever necessary Such a club could not fail to

Miss Maud Gonne who has justly been named The Irish Joan of Arc II spoke in favor of the cause of the Boers who are making such a game struggle for liberty J in the face of overwhelming odds Miss Gonne had an audience entirely in sym pathy with her In the list of Vice Presidents who had seats on the stage were I many of the most prominent business and professional men of Cincinnati says the Enquirer It was the first opportu that the people of that community have had to show their sentiments in the South African struggle They attested by their applause of the gifted woman that sheI struck a responsive throb in their heartsI Miss Gonne is a magnificent specimen of mental and physical womanhood She towers above others of her sex in stature She has a keen bright eye and her words uttered by a voice of wonderous sweetness thrilled by their power and earnestnessThe numbered about 2000 A great many ladies were present and they were as enthusiastic as the sterner sex in their demonstrations of approval of the words of the speaker It was nearly 830 oclock when the noted wom an orator Miss Gonne entered the hall with Mayor Tafel followed by Chas J Fitsgerald Thomas J Mulverhill and Hon Michael Ryan Miss Comic re ceived an enthusiastic welcome and the audience cheered lustily when she went =g J Tiifel asdChairnnan made no speech but introduced Gen Michael Ryan who made a characteristic speech and denounced the war as cruel and brutal in the extreme He grew eloquent in his denunciations of the British Government for its war upon an inoffensive people whose mines and wealth it wanted to secure In 160 years England had found the sons of Erin lined up with her enemy She finds it now in South Africa Ireland is always against her oppressor Irish influence backed against American opinion was potent enough to defeat a contemplated treaty between America and Great Britain She now looks across the water and hopes only from the United States but public opinion and the Irish people are against her England was never our friend While we In the SpanishAmerican war were fighting to free an enslaved race they are now fighting to enslave a free peopleGen Ryan made a great speech in favor of the Boers and was the recipient of much applause His reference to the lionhearted Cronje stirred the audience to tremendous cheers Duty of civilized nations today There was a cry from the gallery Ask McKinley and there was a great laugh from the audience Gen Ryan declared that he believed that it was the duty of the United States to come forward and say to Great Britain This war has gone far enough Gen Ryan read a telegram from AJ Mullane who said he was with the meeting in spirit and sent 50 as his contribution Gen Ryan talked about forty minutes Mayor Tafel introduced Miss Gonne in a few eulogistic words He agreed with Gen Ryan that this country should make the demand that the war should stop but this country is engaged in the same job in the Philippines We should first de mand of Congress to stop the war in the Philippines and then we could call upon England to stop the war in the Transvaal His Honor talked about twenty minutes and concluded by introducing Miss Gonne The eloquent emissary of the Emerald Isle was greeted with tremen dous applause which lasted fully two minutes A magnificent bouquet of roses was handed to her before she began to speakMiss Gonne began by thanking every one but she asked the indulgence of the Germans Dutch and Americans if she devoted her remarks largely to her own countrymen If Ireland were free tomorrow the Irish of this great country would not go back there Everywhere the Irish race la at the head of every movement for human liberty At this time a great nation without cause is seeking to take away the liberty of two white republics in South Africa It was true that aa long as her country is op preMed a she is now she was the friend of thd enemy of England As England never goes to war except for robbery and plutnder there wi right on her side- Men oirter1 nation in the world are with the Boers The gun are pointed by Germans and she knew that more than 20d French officers had given up com nuca4oa to take part in the battle for- freed Every American who ova pJ the Declaration of Independence must be against their old foe and tyrantEng land The eloquent woman told of how the people of Dublin had carried the Boer flag and passed resolutions in favor of the Boers and had cheered President Kruger England was afraid to Inter fere The Irish would help to save the Boers from the same fate that they have suffered The world has never seen a braver sight than the Boers of today Trusting in the faith of their cause they have gone forth to battle the hosts of England The heroism of the women is as great as that of the men The speaker charged that the English had armed the blacks and these savages had outrage Boer women There is a duty which de volves upon every nation and that isI that the rules of civilizedwarfare shall be observed Miss Gonne told stories of English cruelty and treachery not only in the war with the Dervishes but with the Boers The enthusiastic woman drew a graphic and pitiful picture of the English atrocities in the Boer war The burghers were being taught what British courtesy and also British valor meant It was a surprising contrast which she showed between the treatment of theI Englishand Boer prisonersII Miss Gonne spoke eloquently of tbeJJ Irish brigade fighting for the Boers under J the command of Col Blake an American 1 graduate of West Point and John McBride an Irishman The Irish will elect JJohn McBride to Parliament just as they 1 elected Jolla Mitchell to show they are against England These Irish soldiers said Miss Gonne are saving Irelands honor Englands difficulty is Irelands I opportunity The patriotic woman re 1lated several instances of the brutality toward j Irishmen because they were with tthe Boers The whole story of the murI der of Irish prisoners it was saidwas one of the most awful brutality A petition bad been sent to President Kruger asking him that for the murder of every Irishman Dutchman the life of an Eng 1 lish officer at Pretoria should pay the penalty No nation has ever won its i freedom without bloodshed and if liberty i is worth having it is worth fighting for Ireland must return tothe traditions of 1708 if she would secure her freedom Englandrecruited her soldiers in Ireland through the starvation of the people The English are afraid of arming the Irish people Theyare trying to arm the Inmates of the workhouses Two little republics in South Africa were destroy ing the falsehood of Englands greatness which had gone forever before the rifles cf those heroic peasants The beginning of the end of the English empire is at hand d1 ris men unrym7n eras ytl1e time Is near at haul Ireland calls upon you Strike a blow at England wherever and whenever you can By striking at her you

of Louisville who appreciate the pure and good in art have a rare treat in storefor them on the evening of March 18 when Robert Emmet the Martyr to Irish Liberty an historical Templebyacts the opening one being particularly beautiful From behind the scenes the sweet but solemn strains of the Stabat Mater issue forth and fall upon the listening ear the curtain slowly ascends and amid the cadences soft and low to ones sight is revealed a group of peas ants kneeling around a church perform ing the Stations of the Cross Having finished their sacred duty they arise and are wending their way homeward across a stone bridge when OLeary an old sol dier enters from a cottage near the church and looks mournfully after the retreating figures saying Heaven protect the faithful Ireland my beloved country when will thy sorrows cease 1 This character will be assumed by Mr Mackey who has all the cool daring necessary for a soldier To the kiudess of Miss Uzzie Keyer who has charge of the childrens choir at St Patricks church will the management be greatly indebted for bringing out in such a realistic manner this church scene She has especially selected and trained for this occasion a chorus of

Emmet will call forth fresh laudations on this occasion As an actor Mr Cunning ham could put ninny a professional to shame who prides himself on his acting He is finely supported in this by Miss Ada Belle Childress as Maria his wife To a keen observer her facial expression is very good as is also that of Mr Cunningham The rapidity and precision of his different expressions are done with such ease that one would really think Robert Emmet of 1704 stood before him Miss Katie Barrett and Joe Cooney do some very clever comedy work throwing all their efforts into the play and those who witness them

gas stock under any circum stances It is one of the few city investments that yields a profit besides it enables the city to compel the Gas Company to keep with in the limits of its charter and1 give the public light and fuel iin all parts of the city at reasonable 5 rates Finally it is but the precursor of a scheme of speculator to gobble up all the good investments 1 of the city If successful it1 will be followed by an effort to have the city sell its water stock turning the waterworks over to a syndicate and next the Louisville Nashville and other railroad stocks owned by the city Aside from the protection to the people by the city being a stockholder i these public utilities these enterprises are getting past the non dividend stage and beginning to pay a profit which will increase year by year Hence speculators want them now The people who for years have paid taxes to obtai this stock for the city are entitled to this profit and also to the proI tection from extortion likely if those concerns become the property of iin- dividual owners Squelch the scheme in its incipiency DEFNDINQ OUR HOGS There is one provision of our tariff laws of which no one has dis approvfed lIforure te == u- retaliation o na lion and unequal tariffs againstt American products and goods im ported to other countries The cause of this was the stringent in spection laws of France and Germany that excluded AmericanI pork from the ports of those coun tries because of the panic due to the prevalence of trichinae pro dated it was claimed by disease- rkPo Pork being one of our leading exports and its exclusion seriously n affecting pur foreign trade the sub ject was soon forced to the attention Of the Government Presidentt Cleveland formally protested andl warned France and Germany that the inspection laws must be modi- American fled so as not to excludeJ meats or this Government woul jretaliate by excluding from our ports French wines etc and Ger man sausage beet sugar etc SuchI action on the part of our Govern ment would practically deprive the merchants and producers of those countries of the American markett and their Governmentsof large revenues derived from exports Both Governments promptly prom iaed to modify their inspection laws and France did so at the next meeting of its National Assembly the German Government urge Its Parliament to amend the inspection laws but it failed to pass President McKinley was about to put into effect his predecessors plan of exclusion but on the ear nest pita of the German Govern ment and commercial bodies de ferred the matter to give them an 5 t other opportunity to amend the in spection laws That the Government and merchants and manu factonm did make an earnest ef l fort to comply with the American demand is true but

United StatIs Minister at Berlin and thcdr Am bassador at Washington What course will be pursued by the United States is not known but whether or not summary measures are adopted the German discrimination against American shipments must cease and such shipments ad milted on equal terms with those from other countries ONE REAL BRITISH VICTORY After six months of war straining every resource with over 200 000 men at the cost of millions of money and fully 20000 men the English have broken the aronoto of defeat with one victory over th Boers Gen Cronje surrendered to Gen Roberts last Tuesday morn ning with about 3000 men after re sisting for ten days the attacks 40000 troops with ten batteries This seems also to have forced the Boers to raise the siege of Lad smith which was relieved by Buil ler last Thursday It was never thenwas cause for English jubilationn because the tide of disaster had been checked if nothing else The anticipated results of this victory however are not materializing and the jubilation first followed by surprise now with apprehensioni The Boers are not demoralized disposed to give up because of this reverse have not abandoned im portant positions vGenvRoberts h not been llia to followup lire Vl tory by any other move being re sisted by intrenched Boers at every stepIn fact Cronjes desperate standi with a few thousand men holding Gen Roberts army back for two weeks seems to have been the most effective strategy of the entire wa Through Cronje and his army were timedto positionsrand prepare to resist any further advance and of this they seem to have taken the fullest advantage and present a line of defense which means continuous fighting for every inch of advance for the Britishi forces however powerful they ma be aidfortified it before he was surroundl ed He held it despite bombardment l and investigation since the surrender reveals that his loss was small and that his surrender was caused by a rise in the river tende- lug his position untenable it being in the bed and under the banks of a bend in Modder river so located that the English heavy artillery fire was almost without effect The surrendered force is about 3000I

step in the right direction and IfI f honestly carried out will be productive of benefit to publishers and employes alike There are but few open ruptures now pending between newspaper publishers and their em ployes and these were caused by the refusal of the publishers to ar bitrate The move of the associa tion will meet with the approval and cooperation of the Inter national Typographical Union

the Transvaal Irish Lenders Knowing Their Race Is Again United Are Defiant REDMOND ELOQUENT AND The debates in Parliament last week o amendments offered to the address by Irish members recalled the old days when Parnell defied and Biggar ridiculed denounced he stolid and unfeeling ma jority Of course the amendments were voted down overwhelmingly for the re putedly phlegmatic John just now iis rampant raging and unreasoning says Owen Roes special letter in the Chicago Chronicle He has excuse for his moods in human nature and the irony and sneers of his continental neighbors To have ones foremost fighters bedecked with V Cs and other decorations knocked out as promptly as they appear by ignorant Dutch farmers is not con ducive to just action besides to listen to Irelands voice under any circumstances or conditions would be a shock to Johns conscience would be rank heresy in the light of his Christian principles The civilizing bully of mankind as John Mitchell called him ever has been a stranger to just or generous deeds in political and governmental affairs in every clime and generation the individual Englishman is often the most just and generous of men and so the Iris people and their representatives at West minster feel only the usual disappoint ment in having their demands for finan cial and industrial redress scornfully kicked aside They have faith however that their opportunity is coming and then thanks to his longunused and unquenchable hate Paddy will get even with John But if the Irish members had none of their amendments approved o they had much satisfaction and lots of fun in their advocacy It was the procla mation and adoption once more by th reunited party of the militant and defiant policy of the independent party of a dec ade ago Just now they may not be able to do much when the coward Liberals have gone over to the Tories and the Roseberys and Asquiths have become the puppets of Chamberlain but A generall election is approaching and party line- sagainwills clearl dFawn and the R eighty to solid Irish T vet wilt1 counfili a division of the Iouse as 172 Not In many years have the debatin strength and brilliancy of the Irish members appeared to such advantage as in the past few days They seem to have im bibed inspiration as well as courage by the union of their ranks and conscious that the Irish race the world over was at their back they were defiant evenin de loyalycensure thrill of the new situation the national pulse beats stronger and the evolution ary elements though having no faith i parliamentarianism are glad to see th big talking shop across the channel wor ried and angered by Irish representatives The silent men in Irish politics strange as it may appear are really the most active and influential for their policy never changes and it is nearest to th Irish heart They were the strength of Parnell in his hours of triumph and of stress and they will be behind Redmond and Dillon and Healy as long as they fight in harmony against the common enemy and give and take no quarter As the English cable does what English history has always donethat is never mentions Ireland or her champions except to traduce thema resume of the stirring debates caused by Irish motions should be interesting and particularly so because of the high moral sense and in tellectual force of the Irish members taking part in the discussions John Redmond as the accredited spokesman of the reunited Irish party was particu larly effective and he proved himself worthy of the honor of leadership con ferred upon him His amendment to the address was as follows But we humbly represent to your Majesty that the time has come when the war at present being waged in South Africa should be brought to a close on the basis of recognizing the independence of the Transvaal and the Orange Free StateHis speech was eloquentl forceful and the more convincing because it was free from passion His object he said in his opening sentences was to explain and justify the feeling of Ireland toward the war The sympathy of Ireland he pro claimed was with the two South African republics We abhor this war and we call for its stoppage and we declare our intention to do all thatin us lies to main tain the independence of these two little republics which was won by untold sac rificeeand defended by a heroism which is without parallel In the hiatory of the world It has been alleged said Mr Redmond that the real motive of Ire lands sympathy with the Boers was an tagonism to England There was both truth gild untruth in the charge When the Jfcgli h empire in in difficulty a feelI ItiKolhOpcan satisfaction stirs through the veins of the Irish race at home andabroadIt iti our fault that ft L but yours li lithe fault of the

you boitowd the Irish I itJv f tt itj I Parliament becanaetitty years before when you were engagyHW your wicked American war a war particularly compares with the prMiwrt war you were confronted with thia Mate phenomenon of the Irish seeking to faire advantage of your difficulties and sympathizing with your foe Some day trot perhaps far off that Ireland you are about to make for yourselves in South Afdcs you may find rejoicing in the empirdsdifficulties and sending messages of sympathy to your foes I would urge thlsupuntry before it is involved more deeply in this ill fated war to beware ef jmrsuing to the bitter end the chapter which whatever I way the military operations may go whether you succeed in Atlas war or not can only be a story fimisfortune and disgrace iiMr Redmond dented however that the sympathy of Ireland with the Boers was even mainly goveriiiidby antagonism closelyGscarcely an exaggeratiqtrto say that there is scarcely a family in Ireland from the poor people who live in the Dublin slums 1to the highest in the land that is not represented in one shapeqf another upon Irishdmen take to soldiering ton the mere love of the caning more than Englishmen and when they do getto the front a far larger proportion of themare thrust into dangerous positions An Irishman he added can not help feeling a thrill of pride at the record and heroism of the Irish lads from Mayo tend Roscommou who have suffered so terribly in this war and he could not help noticing that while the brave press correspondents paid gen erous tributes to these Irish regiments Gen Buller and others In command made no such mention in their official reports A calculation which hesaw made in a newspaper as to the Bumber of killed and wounded of various nationalities showed there was 120 Irishmen killed for every fiftysix Englishmen In every warlike the present inf which England has been engaged the sympathies of Irishmen have always gone in the right direction they are novas subject to pas sinus of greed and pride and arrogance EnKlishIjingoes Go back to the history of which lost America to Englam and who led the opposition Who inspired who planned who worked steadfast in opposition to that war An Irishman Burke Sheri don and Grattan and the mighty Irish men of that day took precisely the same stand in that eventfull controversy that Irish members take upon the question of thatfwe arrive by a natural process at our sympathies with these republics Weewould be sticks or stones if we were not aroused by this one of the finest spectacles that the world has witnessed since-

Union met in regu lar monthly session at Becks Hall last Sunday afternoon with a large attendance of delegates Communications were re ceived from the National Union of Shoe Workers and Weavers Union of Philadel phia which were acted upon favorably and referred to proper committees Secretary Young was directed to com municate with Congressman Wheeler and urge him to aid in the passage of the bill now pending before Congress for the re lief of the Government employes in the navy yard naval stations and arsenals The resignation of Secretary Charles Peett was accepted and GeorgeRauten bunch representing theBarbersUnion- hcted tot a o c ccfam oa- Tlie committee who badbeeii appointed to conferwith a similar committee from the United Trades and Labor As sembly for the purpose of uniting the two bodies made a long and elaborate report of their labors stating that they had done everything in their power to effect harmony and unity They had made concessions to the other body that they felt could be not otherwise than acceptable At this point the conferrees from the Trades and Labor Assembly arrived with their reply to the plan of amalgamation submitted at the meeting held the Sun day preceding They were Messrs Her man Christen Thomas Harmon Roberts Gundelfinger and Sands Delegate Rob erts of the Horseshoers in his remarks expressed himself as favoring unity and harmony and said these steps should have occurred one year ego Their counterproposition demanded in effect the disbanding of the Central Labor Union that the gentlemen elected at the January meeting be deprived of their offices which were to be declared vacant and that an entirely new consti tution and bylaws be adopted for the government of the new body Still they could not guarantee that such action would bring all the seceding unions under the banner of the body holding the charter from the American Federation of Labor The visiting committee expressed themselves as pleased with their courteous reception and then withdrew The proposals were next taken into consideration and it was unanimously voted to stand by the regularly elected officers and to make no further conces sions This action will be communicated to the Trades and Labor Assembly and also a detailed statement to the unions represented therein of the present status of the case After this the Central Labor Union will follow the course pursued by the American Federation and decline to recognize the seceding body only on the terms originally submitted Copies of letters orderlug the local Federation of Musicians Theatrical Al liance and Salesmens Unions to with draw from the opposition were read from the national officers of those bodies and it is not thought their commands will be ignored Other unions the cigar makers
