Exist But For the Patrick Street Explosion Ireland Might Bo Free Trial and Execution of the Pa triot Occupied Less Than Two Days HIS DEVOTION TO SARAH CURRAN Though the story of Robert Emmet has been often related we must needs from time to time return to the facts and re peat them for they can never lose inter est for our readers and while they maybe familiar there may be some to whom they may be new especially the younger folksThe heroic martyr whose name and fame will ever be honored and cherished r so long as the Irish race exists was born March 4 1778 in Molesworth street Dublin In 1703 he entered Trinity College His college course was brilliant He exhibited a great aptitude for the exact sciences especially mathematics and chemistry In 98 Lord Clare held a visitation for the purpose of inquiring into the extent of the sympathy with the United Irishmen existing in the college This visitation terminated in the expul sion of nineteen students and the repri 0wand of four Among the former were William Corbett afterward one of Na poleons Colonels Thomas Russell and Robert Emmet In 1800 he visited his brother Thomas in prison at Fort George Scotland and then set out for a tour on the continent visiting Belgium France Switzerland and Spain On his way back at Amster dam he met his brother then released from confinement The leading United Irishmen then on the continent were re solved on renewing their efforts in the event of a rnpture between England and Prance regarding the struggle in Ireland ae only Intheuautumnof I unmet had interview with Na poleon The impression left on his mind was that Napoleon would probably invade England in August 1803 He returned to Ireland in October 1802 In the course of the spring he estab lashed depots of arms in Dublin Irish town and Marshalsealone His arrange ments included an attack on Dublin Castle and Pigeonhouse Fort He had not intended his rising before August when he expected Napoleon to invade England but an explosion in Patrick street depot in Dublin on July 16 hastened the devel opment of his plans and he took up his abode in the Marshalsealane depot There says Dr Madden he lay at night on a mattress devising plans turning over in his mindall the fearful chances of the intended struggle well knowing that his life was at stake He fixed July 23 for carrying his schemes into execution The morning of that day found him and his compan ions divided in their plans Consultations were held at the depot in Thomas street at Longs in Crow street and at Allens in College green The Wicklow men under r Michael Dwyer had not come in the Kildare men came in but dispersed i- nkthe afternoon through some misunder standing a contingent of 250 from Wex ford were at hand but without definite orders so it was with a large body assem bled at the Broadstone At length about 9 in thug evening when Emmet was confuted heartsick and desperate a report was brought that the militia were in motion against them If that be the case we may as well die in the street as cooped up here1t Emmet remarked and putting on a uniform he distributed arms sent up a rocket to call in the country contingents and at the It head of 100 men sallied out of Marshal 4 sealane into Thomas streetand directed his steps toward the Castle crying as he drew his sword Come on my boys News that some of the men had killed Lord Kit warden having reached Emmet he hastened back in horror but the mob was beyond control and conscious at last that all was over he hastened put to JUthfarnhanu In less than an hour his party was metedwith several killed Troops were now pouring into Dublin within a few hours marshal law was pro claimed and the executions and the reign of terror that followed 98 recommenced Emmets hiding place was not discovered until August 25 when he was ar rested by the infamous Major Sirr There U no doubt but that Emmet could have escaped to France had he not insisted upon returning to Dublin for the purpose of taking leave of Sarah Curran to whoml he WM engaged After his arrest Emmet was at once taken to the Castle an thence removed to Kilmainham On September 19 he was placed on trial forhIehtreuon before a special commission composed of I ord Norbury Barons George and Daly and Justice Fliiueane s The proceeding occupied but one day the coast roan was filled with military Botaiaglt penotiwu allowed to cafer except the lawyerl reporter and at Uche of the court TlIndictment Wall read The Attorney Genentoharged him with twins m agent and emfox of tin Kr ach Government with byt n0- ff other design than to substitute despotism The speech of the aPrenehIII General was as virulent and ward Emmet as could well be imagined When put to the bar and called upon by the clerk in the usual phraseology of the law to know what he had to say why sentence of death and execution should not be pronounced against him Emmet arose with great firmness and compsure and delivered the speech that has become famousThe trial closed at night by a sentence of death to be carried into effect the next day He was immediately heavily ironed and placed in a cell at Newgaje near the court and at midnight was removed to Kilmainham On entering Kilmainham one of the jailers a man who had often looked on suffering with out a pangburst into tears when he be held Emmets bloodstained limbs for the fetters gripped his tender flesh so mercilessly as to lacerate the skin and dye his clothing with blood The next day about 1 oclock he was conveyed under a strong guard to Thomas street where at the corner of the pave ment by St Catherines church a scaffold had been erected He ascended the steps with firmness and addressed the crowd in sonorous voice My friends I die in peace and with sentiments of universal love and kindness toward all men The halter was then placed around his neck the plank on which he stood was tilted from beneath him and after hanging a few minutes the head was severed from the body and held up in the presence of thousands of his afflictedcountrymen September 23 1803 His remains first interred in Bullys acre hear Kilmainham Hospital are said to have been afterward removed either to St Michans or to old Glasievin churchyard This year Emmets anniversary was generally commemorated by Irishmen all over the world appropriate exercises being held wherever there are Irish societies The

audience that packed the New York Academy of Music last Sunday night on the occasion of the one hundred and twentysecond anni versary of the birth of Robert Emmet under the auspices of the Clan na Gael W Bourke Cockran denounced the policy of President McKinley in relation to the war in South Africa The utterances of Mr Cockran and of Recorder Goff were hailed with outbursts ofapplauseRecorder

Patrick J Gleason ODonovan Rossa and a deputation of officers of the Irish Vol unteers as a guard of honor Recorder Goff said in his opening ad dress Let us remind our President that hundreds of thousands of American citi zens of Irish German or Dutch birth or blood threw aside party affiliations and cast their votes for him in the belief that he would be an American President that would stand for everything American in its truest and best sense Unless an authoritative voice will proclaim with no uncertain tone that the policy of thi republic is not to outrage its traditions or alienate the friendship of Germany or the other great countries of Europe by openlyorsecretly linking itself with the destmyer of publican 1 ertp uI Sout Ottsatl of citizens when next they approach th ballotbox may give emphatic expression to their remeniberance Mr Cockran who was hailed with cries of Youre the boy paid an elo quent tribute to the memory of Emmet and then continued This sacred anni versary can not be better employed tha in showing it to be the duty of not only every Irishman but of every loyal citizen of the United States to oppose this infamous war which menaces the peace of the whole world The English Government attributes the disapproval of almost all governments to hatred I tell you while there are some governmen I that sympathize with England no people does I hold that there should be room on this planet for men who care mor for evening prayers than for evening dress who fear God and have no fear of man However much we sympathize with the brave Boers we must be neutral but I deny that our Government has been neutral President McKinley said lostt night that there was no alliance withI England I incline to agree with him It was no alliance but a surrender of ourr foreign policy into the hands of British Foreign Office Witness the re call of our Consul at Pretoria and his replacement by the tweatyyear old son of the Secretary of State who stopped i London to get his instructions from the British Foreign Office This has been interpreted as meaning a secret alliance and has deterred all other nations from intervention I tell you if the God ofI Battles and of Justice permits these patriots to struggle for eight months more the world will see whether the American people sympathize with Eng lands efforts to destroy a republic and1 the heroes who are defending it Eng land has declared that the nearness of a republic iis a menace to her colonies Iff that be so may not Canada be regarded1 as a menace to us I ask you whether ii- is not the duty of the whole civilizedI world to unite in disarming the power which confessedly opposes every neigh boring nation that is too weak to defendI itselfPresident David Starr Jordan of Leland Stanford University of California tt- a in lecture at All Souls church in Chicago last Sunday to a large audience said that tinedeclaretd that ultimately the people of South Africa would have their freedom The

the opinion tha war is a curse on any nation unless it is the re sult of a fight for freedom Such a thing as carrying on war for the sake of encouraging imperialistic ideas will wreck sooner or later a nation that tries such a schemeCentral Music Hall was crowded on the anniversary of the birth of Robert Emmet at a mass meeting under theJJ auspices of the Chicago Irish Nationalists to protest against the war waged by Great Britain in the Trausvaal and to ex press sympathy with the Boers Miss Maud Gonne was the chief speaker Resolutions were adopted expressing sympathy with the Boers

John Woodward who was recently hissed at a banquet of the Albany Society in New York City for the utter ance sentiments favorable to the Boers delivered an address at Buffalo at the I celebration of the birthday of Robert Em I met Among other things he said j The price of liberty is blood and blood has been poured as the libation of freedom I at every national altar Even today t in this vaunted

revamping their slanders against the European governments and their flattery of the United States in which they are seconded by their cockneys in this country The fake of the attempted alliance against the United States in the war with Spain prevented by the disapproval of England is revivedwith France instead of Russia as heretofore as the insti gator of the antiAmerican movement This charge against the European governments has long since been exploded by the emphatic denials of the governments accused backed up by the statements of the American Ambassadors and representatives in those countries and is i now well known to have originated in London with the sole purpose of cajoling the United States into aid ing England in her isolated position without a friend in the wide world and possibly saveher from the inevitable consequences of her duplicity and crimes against all nations The scheme failed despite the fawning and falsehood of the cockneys in this country The American people are not only just but intelligent and grateful as J well They know a bit of history that the governments accused by 1 England of treachery toward the I United States though not

effect upon theAmerican as evidenced by her failure to get anything thereby she is called to accoun and held to the line as our rights and interests demand she may dis like and have trouble with other

without re gard to Englands interests Johnny Bull can knock off any of those chips but he seems to have enough for the present in South Africa The news from South Africa has been a continuous report

Council came into power the members of the Demo cratic Board of Safety have been de nouncing the action of the former body in reducing the police and fire departments which was followed by the drop

the ordinance which was only Intended to impair the usefulness of both departments and make enemies for the present administration The members of the police department were dismissed in violation of the law and one would reasonably expect that when vacancies occur the old membersI would be reinstated but this has not been done During the past two weeks the Board of Safety has made a number of appointments new men and thes only reason thfar given for their course is that theyf believe the men who were dropped win win their suit for rein statement Color is lent to this by th e fact that the

Pennsylvania for the removal of tattoo marks which he bore all over his body They were in colors of red blue and purple and were so disfiguring that they struck terror into the children on the streets so that the little ones fled to their homes whenever he appeared among them On close examination it was found that the winged lion and the zodiac were among the figures tattooed on his back and breast The man told a strange story He had up to five years ago been a seaman In a storm such as they have on the South Atlantic ocean his ship was wrecked and he and several companions were driven to the coast of Patagonia Here they were captured by a tribe of cannibals His companions were promptly killed and eaten before his eyes but being sur feited with white man for the time being they carried him off and tatooed him car a pie Becoming somewhat attached to him for his many feats of daring they de termined to adopt him He bided his time tilla few months ago when he managed to escape and being taken aboard a passing vessel was landed in Philadelphia Now the question arises how did an obscure fierce tribe in a remote part of the globe like Patagonia know of these symbols and religions characters which were supposed to be long to the Egyptians That they might have formerly been of the same race snot improbable but therein lies the mys tery Dr George F Becker of the Geological Survey has returned from a scientific ex ploration of the Philippine bringing with him two specimens of the dwarf Aetas or Little Niggers who are believed to be the missing link between man and the monkey The skeletons will be kept at the National Museum The Aetas are a tribe of the lowest human beings on earth They were the earliest inhabi tants of Polynesia The men average four feeteight inches in height The women are three to four inches shorter Both sexes bean striking resemblance to apes Their heads seem too large for their bodies their jaws project forward and their faces are wrinkled in deep lines like those of monkeys They live wild in the forests of their country sowing no grain nor planting for sustenance They carry on a queer traffic in gold precious stones rare plants and birds skins They give them in exchange for small mirrors or other articles which they covet The traders deposit little luxuries and articles ofadornment in secret places whence they are carried away by these queer peo ple and rare gems or beautiful bird skins put in their pieces for their civilized neighbors The arm bones of these Little Niggers are so long that even when standing they can easily reach their knees Their feet ire not shaped as ours r if nfPinl1 h prnnnr tionedand theremoiidg smaller toes turn inward like those of home monkeys Altogether ethnologists are satisfied that this queer tribe possesses characteristics that entitle them to the claim of the missing link The zobo is the latest musical invention It is rapidly becoming a favorite withI schools campaign clubs military cOIn panies and in fact with any gathering of young folks who wish to form brass bands without having to engage in the labor of learning as has heretofore beenI the custom The fad has not yet reached us but by and by it will simmer alongI Any one who can hum a tune can be come a performer on a brass instrument by means of the zobo Many schools iuI New York are now the proud and happy possessors of a brass band and the girls with cornets and piccolos stand side by side with the boys holding saxophones long slide trombones and brass horns nearly two feet in length with broadI trumpet ends A band of any number ofJJ pieces can be fitted out A drum is I usually obtained and a fullfledged brass band is the result One of the most beautiful works ofII charity in Paris is that which renders assistance to poor women and young children It was founded by Queen Marie Antoinette Among the poor mothers whom it helps none ever suffered more keenly nor drank more deeply of the cup of woe than did the beautiful founder of this royal charity From the moment of its birth says the Providence Visitor the child of the poor is cared for The Presi dents of this society bear the greatest names in France and they distribute to the women clothes and food for their babies Ladies of highest birth visit their poor proteges and give them be sides their alms their personal sympathy and interest which to many refined na tures is far more than most abundant alms When the mothers of many of these children are obliged to leave home to become breadwinners another society called the Creches or Home for Infants receives children from fifteen days to three yearsold and are kept daily for a trifling sum each The Ecoles Maternelles continue the work of the creches and teach the children frogsj two to seven years how to read and write From these infant schools which in a multitude of respects are away ahead of the kindergarten as we have it the little students leave at pix years old to enter another school graded from six to thir teen years At this latter age the chil dren leave the school to learn a trade The beauty of thcselCecolesltor schools lies in the perfect system and method adopted by their originator and trustees All throughput these thirteen years the faiths is taught to the little ones and their morals carefully and lovingly guarded Their existence

IRELAND Record of the Most Important of the Recent Events Culled From Exchanges The Keady branch of the Gaelic league is meeting with great success At a recent football match at Jones road near Dublin 1500 leaflets of the Gaelic league were distributed Branches of the United Irish League are now being formed in almost every county throughout the country John ODowd Chairman of the Sligo County Council was given an enthu siastic reception when he visited Dro more West Mayor McHugh of Sligo though only forty years of age is wearing the May oral chain of that historic town for the sixth time Several new branches of the United Irish League have been formed in Cavan and arrangements have been made for great meetings- The great mission of the Redemptorlst fathers in the Dublin ProCathedral was largely attended and is pronounced one of the most successful held in recent yearsThe branch of the United Irish League recently founded at Lixnaw County Kerry has aroused great enthusiasm and is giving much encouragement to the national cause The Belleck branch of the United Irish League is adding to its membership weekly and never was such enthusiasm and determination displayed since the days of the Land League 7 TJ DeBurghf Deputy Ieutentantofi ipldtown Naas one of the persons whose ancestors were given the land of the Irish people of the past lately subscribed 25 to the evicted tenants restoration fund Edgsworthtown County Longford was brilliantly illuminated upon the release from prison of John ODonnell Bands turned out and paraded the streets and bonfires were seen in all parts of the surrounding district Thomas McDonagh of Listowel County Kerry who previous to the war conducted a shoemaking business iu Johannesburg has been dismissed upon the charge of high treason brought against him by the British An exchange says the United Irish League so fur has not made much head way in Wicklow This lukewarmness is hardly in keeping with the traditions of the OTooles and the OByrnes who suffered such fearful persecutions and loss of territory through British misrule The influence of Mr Parnells name should be sufficient to set the national spirit of Wicklow moving in this direc tion but not much has been done yet The North Longford Executive of the United Irish League recently took pre liminary steps for the reinstatement of evicted tenants in Killoe parish and practical measures were adopted regarding the grazing question As the days pass the fight against the alien ownershipof the soil of Ireland is gaining strength In the near future the man who turns up his sleeves and works the land will be the bwner thereof The British garrison in Ireland is now being routed While January was springlike Feb ruary has thrown everything back into the midst of winter The snow that had fallen was however an advantage to the tillage farmer It protected crops iu the ground young grass and prevented the frost having too great An effect The only harm it could have done in this respect was when the farmer being in too great a hurry with his plowing plows some of it into the soil There it remains a long time unmelted and when it does melt it chills the soil for a long time A discovery of a most peculiar kind was made in the Camior river that flows through Burr A number of men leaning over the parapet of the Windsor road bridge looking out for fish were sur prised to observe on the rocky bed of the river what they described as bullets Upwards of forty were discernible andat a lower section of the stream nearer to a millrace thirty were counted A man named Ilanlon with n small can attached to a rod dredged in a primitive way the locality where the ammunition was ex posed to view One after another the bullets were fished up and were found to be loaded rifle cartridges their appear ance indicating that they had not been in the water any considerable time A rumor is prevalent Unit something U likely to be done toon in the direction of restoring the
