CITIES Amid the cheers of thousands while a dozen bands played the melodies of their native land ten thousand New York Irishmen wearing the colors of the Emerald Isle and carrying the flags of three nations marched up Fifth avenue to celebrate the memory of Irelands patron saint It was St Patricks day and not only on upper Fifth avenue but all over the city there were manifesta tions of a wish to honor the occasion Thousands who were not Irish pinned shamrocks in the coat lapels or made bits of green evident on some part of their clothing In Brooklyn Jersey City and other cities near New York there were parades and at night numerous dinners added still more to the citys homage to the great man of Ireland The parade from Fortysecond street to Harlem was a great success Thousands lined the way braving an extremely un comfortable wind for the privilege of seeing the procession But the parades themselves had little discomfort Com missioner Nagle had cleaned the streets along the line of march so perfectly that one could scarcely have told that only the day before snow covered everything The crowd which began gathering long before the time for the parade to start was a gayly bedecked one The street fakirs who sold Irish and Boer flags did a big business Even bigger was th traffic of the venders oforocks Many were those wh spurned the little cloth itaetw afji tirom Ireland There were r thousands of these to be seen in the crowd Boer flags were only a trifle less prominent than those of Ireland Louten Wessel an accredited representative of the Boer Government rode in a carriage decked with Boer streamers but few recognized him The crowd was perhaps the most dense from the Windsor Hotel block to the Cathedral The throngs seemed to gather around the Windsor Hotel site with a sort of fascination nearly every one making mention of the fact that just one year before during the passing of the Irish parade the terrible Windsor fire broke out The parade under Grand Marshal John Ellard was prompt in starting The marshal rode a richly caparisoned horse and wore the striking full dress uniform ofa Hiber nian officer Michael T Kane and Michael Martin with a hundred others were the marshals aids Hundreds of policemen under Inspector Harley con tributed their share to the success of the parade and they did it with more en thusiasm than policemen ordinarily dis playAt the head of the procession was the Sixtyninth Regiment with Col Duffy in command The full strength of the regiment was in line and hearty were the cheers for them all along the line of match

America The leadership of the labor movement is a source of difficulty In America unlike the Continent the labor move ment generates its own leaders Men ofreally fine intelligence and splendid power of organization come to the front rapidly enough But dishonest and self ish men rise as well Some become extremists unpractical they lose influ ence with the outside world and disap pear or become socialist agitators Others who show talent and energy in industrial pursuits as well as in teaching fellow workmen are advanced in position till they are out of the ranks of labor entirely Others leave the movement to accept political preferment sometimes driven out by the laboring men themselves Some remain however and become the solid conservative guides and chief hope of the movement Unfortunately much of their energy must be expended lin- fighting down the radical projects con stantly emanating from those to whom conservatism is foreign Smaller leaders at times betray their trust and cast sus picion on all leadership Hence work ingmen so often mistrust their tried leaders mistake conservatism for be trayal and attempt to remove or injure those very men in whom chiefly hop

against a civil reception to Queen Victoria in Dublin The reason for the Queens visit he says is manifest If it were slightly disguised we might be tempted to forget many things which it would be

intended as a bribe to Ireland to abandon the national for the imperialistic idea We are proud that the Irish soldier faced death with less fear than did the English soldier but we have no voices to cheer our few countrymen who will return from fighting to bring into bondage like ours a race as valiant as ours With England plighted to the imperial idea it becomes her destiny as it became Napo

determination to visit Ire land and give the order for the Irish troops to wear the shamrock on Patricks a dayWhen Gen Buller cabled his stirring eulogism of the valor of the Irish troops the Queen was deeply moved and she lay awake all that night considering how best to requite their services Toward morning she fell into a deep sleep to the great relief of her attendants and on rising she sent

THE WORLD The request of the Boer repub lics through the United States Government for mediation to bring about cessation of hostilities with a view to reaching a settlement through peaceful methods was not i i I only rejected by England butwas taken advantage of for a defi bor dering on impertinence that Eng land would not allow the interven tion of any Government in South African affairs And this has been followed by another outbreak of boasting by the English and Amer ican cockneys as to Englands power to resist and crush any or all nations that may dare to interpose in anythingflffecting Englands policy or desires While it is now lamentably conceded that England would be powerless on land against any of the first class powers her invincible fleet we are told could blockade every port sink every L vessel prevent the transportation j of troops to attack any of her pos sessions and defend her coast from assault or invasionfor be it known she is the mistress of the seas whose will must be respected by all powers of the world This may tickle the vanity of the Englishman allay the discontent of the Queens subjects at home and in the colonies and throw our American

destruction to them do not realize or heed it Indeed they seem to be utterly indifferent and even defiant iu the face of Englands warning and implied threats Instead of indicating any letup in their anti English policy the only change if any noticeable is that instead of caution or secrecy as to their in tents or movements they are now more open and bold Russia and trance especially no longer

governments blot out two nations annex their territory and rule them as British provinces This puts a new phase on the issue from an international standpoint It verifies the claim of the Boer Gov ernments as to the real intention of England and fully justifies the declaration of war by the Boers it further convicts England of duplic ity not only to the Boers but to the world at large as she positively disclaimed any such intention claiming that her only purpose was to compel the Boer republics to ac cord to English residents just and equal rights of person and prop erty If she attempts

correspondence began work some weeks ago Up to date it has ac complished great d al has much under way and is untiring in its efforts to carry out Ute purpose for which it was ppWlIlec1Of course its actSi plays and triodes off procedure ale secret but wholly within the law offthe onion and of the State as well for that matter Up was given to this committee so quietly has it proceeded with its work But the publication by a daily paper of what purported to be the action and purpose of this com mittee aroused much adverse criti cism among the members of the union The committeeand its members alone know what they have done or propose to dohave not given any information to any daily paper nor will they do so Therefore any one can draw his own conclusion as to the correctness of the daily papers statements con corning this committee When the committee has anything to report it will be to the union and not to the newspapers The providing of a Committee on Labor and Statistics in the City Council fills a longfelt want It is not only a recognition which should have been accorded labor long ago but it indicates that the importance of labor as a component part of almost everything involved in city business is appreciated by the Council Workingmen will now know who to go to regarding their interests in city matters instead of racing all over the city after Coun cilmen to agree to present their plea only to be referred to some committee that knows nothing and cares less about it and having othe- specific business to attend to read ily shelves or dismisses the labor matter Councilman C E Shepard is the right man in the right place as Chairman of this committee As a prominent member of a labor union he will be able to give labors side of the question which gener ally only needs to be properly stated and urged to succeed Mr Shepard has both the ability and disposition to do this and while much perhaps too much will be expected of him judging by what he has done al ready in behalf of labor in city affairs he can be relied ou to fully do his part more effectively and promptly in future E 10 seem to think it ito usejicouaterfeiti a union a elsoneirYproduc are-

Y when he delivered the follow ingaddress before the IrishAmericans of that city for the advance proofsof which we ate indebted to the Catholic Union and Times v Mr Chairman Ladies and Gentle men Fellowcitizens It is with great pleasure that I address you on the recurring anniversary of the patron saint of our mother country It is certainly an auspicious occasion when I find that nation which for the last seven hundred years has persej turace in the be in le It is with ejuieetonthis ru 471 5 4 the struggle of those brave people iu South Africa who are fighting for their property their homes and their liberty- It is certainly a glorious spectacle and worthy of all admiration to see two little republics contending with success against one of the greatest empires as well as one of the most bloodthirsty and greedy Governments that has ever existed No where or at no time has the story of David and Goliah ever been more aptly illustrated than in the present war between the Boers and English in South Africa and like the ichosen people of old we fellow Iriah Americans pray that on this day the god of battles will ttand with the just and weak as against the wicked and strong It is but the beginning of the end of Englands power Under the i leadership of the Washington of South Africa Paul Kruger we are sure that be fore the end is reached England will meet with defeat or at least such a disaster as will place her among the secondclass powers of the world It is time the Irish race should rise up and avenge the wrongs of centuries The wicked can not prevail The murders the tortures the banishments and confiscations must i be avenged and the time is ripe for our people to prepare for it I am heartil ashamed of my countrymenRoberts Kitchener French White and Kelly Kennythe only successful British Gen erals in South Africa and although the are my countrymen I sincerely pray tha they may meet most signal defeat at the hands of the patriotic Boers I regret exceedingly that instead of turning their genius toward the accomplishing of th freedom of their own country they are using it to oppress and enslave a nation of free men- England has at last realized that with out the assistance of Ireland she can wt n no battles and the visit of Englands I Queen is a bold attempt to conciliate the- t Irish nation for she realizes that without assistance of Irishmen England sur rounded as she is on all sides by foes who are ready to avenge the wrongs of hundreds of years must be crushed and disintegrated I warn my countrymen iu Ireland to have nothing to do with the Queen and to entirely ignore her and to Ignore and despise an Irishmen fighting in South Africa as traitors to their coup try traitors to their manhood and traitors to liberty The horrible acts of Oliver Cromwell and his successors down to the present time can not be wiped out by a visit from her Gracious Majesty Let the Queen first procure home rule for Irela and restore the people to the sights IronI which they have been robbed and then let her visit our native soil when she will receive the welcome that the warm hearted Irish people freely give to those who respect their rights and do the justice The visit lis only made because England is In very sore straits Now i the time for tu to standup and dema the restoration of our rights Let our countrymen aotPt1 flattered into

Relief to Ireland Patronage Can XotrDo Away With Demand For Homo Rule Queen Victoria Will Receive a Conrtqous Reception in Ireland IRISH NATIONALISTS AGAINST WAR John E Redmond the Irish leader in the British Parliament cabled the fol owing signed statement to the New York World on St Patricks day which clearly defines the attitude of the re united party The position of the Irish Nationalists is quite clearly defined They are strongly against this war and would rejoice to see the defeat of England But at the same they find it impossible to restrain some feeling of pride in the gallantry of the Irish soldiers even though the cause in which they are now fighting has not their sympathy vIsitotfilueen2 J nIupone thing I can confidently say to Irishmen and to the friends of Ireland in America no palliatives can settle the Irish national question We will gladly accept all we can get so as to strengthen our hands but nothing can ever be accepted by us as final and satisfactory except the unquestioned recognition of our nationality and of our absolute right to govern ourselves and to control the destinies of our nation I The same paper also publishes a mes sage from William Redmond relative to the Irish demand for home rule and Queen Victorias proposed visit to Ire land in which he said The fact that after many years of insult and injury the Irish people are now encouraged to wear the emblem ofr their nationality by the Queen causes rather more amusement in Ireland than anything else With or without leave the Irish always have preserved their national character and will continue to do so The more thoughtful people inI Ireland do not lose sight of the fact that while England is pleased to allow the wearing of the green she also insists onI heaping fresh taxation on Ireland The present war will cost the IrishI taxpayer several million pounds Con sidering the already heavy disproportion of Irish taxation profound disgust iis felt because Irishmen are being charge- for a war which they utterly dissaprove The Irish soldiers are mostly men who drifted into the army not for loyalty but for want of other employment Once in the ranks the Irishmen fight bravely as they always do trot the feeling shoe- them in Ireland is one of pity that good Irish blood will be spent in a war which outside of England is universally con demned ttNo amount of royal patronage can do away with the Irish demand for home rule Until this is granted discontent Quaden as a reception as she would in France or any other country But the visit will still leave Irishmen convinced that they are entitled to selfgovernment that is necessary and just for Ireland attd that they must rely on themselves to get it a JOHN FAHEVS NEW STAND Popular John Faber for over ten years in business at
