Request For Another Conference President Fuclis Announces Ills Standing Committees For the Year LONG AND INTERESTING SESSION The regular monthly meeting of the Central Labor Union convened at Becks Hall last Sunday afternoon at the regu lar hour with President John Fuchs in the chair After the roll call and reading of the minutes of the previous meeting credentials were received from the Fed oral Labor Union and William Poole was obligatedCommunications were received from a number of national and local organiza p tions the most important being that giving a synopsis of the situation of the building trades people in Chicago and their determination to win Another from the Central Labor Union of Wash ington calling upon all trade unionists to urge their representatives in Congress to vote for bills now pending favorable to organized labor An appeal from the Central Labor Union of Erie composed of thiryfive local unions for aid in the erection ofa Labor Temple to cost 40000 was referred to the Board of Directors with authority to take suitable action One received from Indianapolis stated that nonunion plates were being pur chased by the publisher of a Jefferson ville paper procured from the nonunion Columbian Press Association was referred to the Grievance Committee and a re quest from the National Brotherhood of Steam Engineers for the assistance of theOrganization Committee was granted Announcement was made that the Brotherhood of Railway Trackmen bad affiliated with the American Federation of Labor that the Hood Medical Com Pe+ypn aviied = tM i at Lowell Mass and that the coopers were pushing a vigorous fight against the Quaker Oats manufacturers for employing nonunion men Secretary Zeno Young read a letter from the Conference Committee of the United Trades and Labor Assembly asking for another hearing and the privilege of submitting amended articles for the consolidation of the two bodies The courtesy of the floor was granted Herman Christen and James Roberts who stated that their organization had receded from the demand for another election of offi cers but wished the Central Labor Union would agree to certain changes in the laws governing that body Both gentle men were given a most respectful hearing but quite a number of their sugges tions were turned down the most impor tant being those relating to the Presi dential term of office which they wanted limited to one term and the official papers representing the organized labor of Louisville The Kentucky Irish Amer can and the Journal of Labor received the votes of every delegate present and it was unanimously resolved not to in- dorse or recognize any other publications printed in this city The statements in certain daily papers that there was a division upon this question are entirely erroneous The workingmen of Louisville know the difference between a news paper and a handbill all of which is to their credit and will result to their ma terial advantage The request that another conference committee be appointed was agreed to Messrs McGill Fuchs Dawson Taylor and John Young were selected for this duty They wilt meet Messrs Christen Recktenwald Roberts Mueller and Har mon from the other side and will present their report at the next regular meeting unless one is called sooner The senti ment seems to be that the whole question v should be disposed of immediately the outside organizations to make application for membership and be admitted in the regular way This would avoid all contention and obliterate the differences of the past fifteen months President Peters of the Salesmens Union was present and addressed the delegates in behalf of life organization His remarks were brief but pointed and carried conviction with them He urged the delegates to plead with the members of their unions to patronize only such stores as recognized the Salesmens Union and thereby assist in making effective the shorter workday movement His remarks had been carefully prepared and were frequently interrupted by applause Another gentleman prominent in labor circlet throughout the country was pres ant in tin person of John J Connelly of Boston member of the Executive Board of th Brotherhood Machinists who B making a tour of the southern States twin Itpoeeof arousing a spirit of unionism among the snaeliiuists He made a ooucfte alatewe ntof this causes leading up

proceedings throughout were in teresting President Fuchs told of the results of his conference with the Execu tive Committee of the American Federa tion of Labor in Washington and why the charter was granted to the body organized here The opinion seemed to prevail that before the meeting of the Federation next December the factions will be obliterated and the toilers again united under one banner I PRAISES OUR EFFORTS Pope Leo Says This Country Courageously Done Its Duty Rome dispatches convey the informa tion that the failure of the recent Amer ican overtures for a peaceful solution of the

exclaimed sadlytlNow England alone is to blame but America is the only power that has had the courage to do its dutyThe semiofficial Vatican organ the Voce Della Verita commenting on the failure of

England must admit that the policy followed by Englands present Ministers may lead to most serious even disastrous results Father Louis Schoch Prefect Apostolic in the Transvaal has telegraphed to the Pope imploring him to exert all his in fluence and power to prevent the threat ened destruction of Johannesburg That city is a stronghold of Catholicism in South Africa It contains a Cotholic hospital orphan asylum and four schools The Pope was greatly moved by this mes sage His anxiety to avert such a catastrophe and his inability to do so are preying so much upon the mind of the Pontiff already tired and agitated by constant receptions of pilgrims that Prof Tappon is not a little concerned about the health of his venerable patient I CATHOLIC KNIGHTS Will Celebrate TwentyThird Anniversary at Music Hall The Central Committee and delegates of the Catholic Knights of America held another largely attended and interesting meeting Monday night with Branch 4 abd scored several points toward the

Queen No Evidence That Any Political Concessions Will Accrue to Ireland BLACK SUGGESTED FOR DECORATIONS Cable dispatches from London say that a trained hospital nurse has lately been kept in constant attendance upon Queen Victoria principally for night duty She is assisted by an equally able colleague The Queen is now more than eighty years old and weighs 1C8 pouuds although she is only four feet ten inches tall It can readily be understood that her respira tion and circulation need looking to No heart trouble has affected her but the possibility of it is the raison detre for the nurses who does not wear the pro fessional costume and is bound to the greatest discretion and reserve The Queens approaching visit to Dub lin is eagerly discussed in both countries The Parnell family is dividedagainst itself as to how the Queen should be received Following upon Anna Parnells suggestion that the shamrock should be steeped in Ink comes a letter from J II Parnell M P welcoming the Queen and auguring all manner of good things from her visit J H Parnell is City Marshal of Dublin in which capacity he has the custody of the keys of the city which Lord Mayor Pile into present to the Queen in token of homageon her arrival at the city gate Parnell first said he would not perform this ceremony but since then changing his mind never very decided he has signified his readi ness to pay homage to the Queen Anna Paruell who holds her brother in supreme contempt again writes say ing that absolute indifference isi not a sufficiently marked attitude for the Irish Nationalistsi to adopt toward the Queen 5 t3vjr ifi8 w imir but suggests that the crowds should sing Irish national and Boer songs She proceeds As to the decorations the only proper color will be black The Queen is said to like the insignia of mourning and there is no reason why she should not see plenty of it Every day of her reign the Irish people have had to wear mourning in their hearts though it has made them far too poor to wear iton their backs Archbishop Walsh at present in Rome found that Lord Mayor Pile had put his name on the Committee of Decorations forthe Queens visit without his assent The Bishop telegraphed him that this was an impertinence and ordered its removal Other public men whose assent Pile had also assumed did likewise Meanwhile Tim Harrington M P in forms the World correspondent that Pile will be defeated when his term as mem ber of the corporation expires next Jan uary and every Nationalist Councillor who voted for nn address to the Queen will also be rejected The feeling of the Nationalists iiq not at all against the Queen but against Lord Mayor Pile for what they regard as a gratuitous piece of toadyism The Queen will be well re ceived in fact in the excitement the moment the Nationalists quietly admit Irishmen may Demonstrate with a fervor of hospitality which may be taken for contentment uriderBritish rule The Queen and royal family as well as the Government here are anxious enlist the excitement raised by the toI Mayors indiscreet act The Duke Connaught expressly stated in Belfast on Thursday that the idea of the visit to Ireland was the Queens Very own and had no political intent or significance whateverIt be a godsend to Dublin where trade has been very stagnant of late Im mense crowds will flock there Already the hotels are booked full In addition the royal visit is expected to make Ire land a fashionable holiday resort for the British this year especially as the violent hatred for France will keep the English away from the Paris Exposition So Ireland may reap some solid gain from the Queens visit That any big political concession will accrue to Ireland from it there Is no evidence whatever at present It is a remarkable coincidence that April 2 the day chosen by the Queen for her departure from Windsor for Ireland will be the centenary of the ratification of the treaty of union between Great Britain and Ireland The New York Journals

long in the memories of those present Mr James Dillons response was one of the best of the entire evening in which he paid a neat compliment to the man agerial ability of Director Cunningham and his untiring efforts to develop their best talents In view of the fact that the Ancient Order of Hibernians will be under great expense for the national State and cotm ty conventions in May and June the

should England protest or make a fuss because Russia has massed troops at Kushk and taken a foothold in Persia We are at home England has nothing to say about what we are doing within the limits of our frontiers As for Persia she is not so far as I know a vassal State of Great Britain She is free to grant concessions for railroads to whom soever it seems good to her and to con tract loans with whomsoever she pleases English ister of Foreign Affairs in an interview published recently in LIndependence Beige But had not England been uncomfort ably engaged in South Africa she might not have let these things pass without saying something for she is a great talk er It is even probable enough that she would have clanked her great sabre and made an infernal racket un bruit denfer for several days Her press would probably have covered us with mud and her orators with opprobrium But that would have been all To say that the cause of the Boers is as dear to us as possible and that that of their ag gressors is as odious would be only to tell what is already known Our people hope most ardently for the victory of the Boers and for the crushing of the Eng lishas do all other peoples for that matter for upon this point unanimity is absolute Unhappily or happily as we er- tussfaiska1 ices devoted entire1y tQ works peace =Our suproe fspacifi our people are pacific We are all pacific The puissant monarch who took the initiative in The Hague Conference owes it to himself owes it to Europe and to the world not to let loose wits without ex treme necessity The question that every one here is asking himself is Can we passively assist at the complete crushing of the Dutch population of South Africa And it will be necessary to answer it For above the interest of peace lies the interest of hu manity It is impossible to disguise it the war which the English are making against the Boers is essentially a war against humanity In this regard what our Emperor will decide I can not say or even know at present But he will decide something for his heart bleeds at the sight of what is happening in South decidingitweight for Europe and for the world Whatever the Emperor decides Russia will carry it outand without fear of the English fleet even admitting that it be what the English proclaim it to be invincible than which nothing is less certain because nothing is less proved And we have even less fear of the British army This army commanded by the most famous chiefs can not whip the Boers who are only peasants improvised into soldiers and three times less numerous than their foe The easy reputation it has acquired in the course of wars under taken against half savage populations has suddenly vanished when it found it self before white soldiers and commanded in European style Admit it or not England is militarily and politically in full decadence Politi cally she has slipped into the hands of execrable demagogues at once shame less speculators and blatant charlatans Militarily she is served by mercenaries who have something better to do than to march to death for enthusiasm com manded by officers asa rule of mediocre education who have not been able to acquire in wars which are more like huntS than anything else the experience to command an army In the European sense The English military decadence is un deniable And it is not only in South Africa that this decadence is known but also on the banks of the Nile and of the verybusyworld by making her great war ships parade the seas so Ito give to herself and to others the Illusion of power It Is trouble

Pine His Life Away in Solitude Ills Brief but Remarkable Mili tary Career Proved hint a Great Soldier Being a True Patriot England Fears sad Must Have Him Out of tho Way ONLY ENGLANDS USUAL BRUTALITY That was a brutal suggestion on the part of the military critic of the London Times when he proposed that Cronje the valiant lion of South Africa be sent to St Helena since there he might be accommodatedat Longwood with the large retinue he desires Though the British Government has since given no positive notice of what it intends to do but has been content to merely anchor the distinguished warrior in a gunboat off Cape Town the general impression is that he is doomed to be buried alive far out in the sea at Long wood near the Spot where Napoleon passed the dreary days of his captivity The imprisonment of Napoleon may possibly have been a matter of excusable state policy on the part of the European monarchs but the transportation of Gen Cronje and his men to that lonely place more than 1200 miles from Africa and 800 miles from the nearest island Ascen sion is wholly without excuse Such a course would subject Great Britain to the scorn of the world while it might possi bly stir a protest from other nations that could not well be brooked The selfish commercial instincts of the London shop keepers have even prompted the sugges tion that a hero so near the general heart of the masses as Cronje might serve to stem the decadence of St Helena and bring it once more into prominence But the thought of using the great farmer General as an advertising card by which to recoup the declining fortunes of the Island is the most repulsive of all r t St Helana enjoyed afair amou of Y ue peung ot e ez canal This changed the route to the East Indies and deprived something like 6000 inhabitants of a living The island received another blow when the changed conditions made it advisable to reduce the garrison while the suppression of the slave trade made it no longer necessary to keep a naval squadron there Then the inhabitants fell into poverty and had nothing to depend upon but plying the vocation of pirates upon such unfortunate whalers as came there in distress There being as if purposely no drydock and ways on the island ships once caught in this trap were usually bought up by the islanders for asongand pirated for their cargoes andjigging The population has now gone down to below 4000 and the people are deserting the island much faster than the births increase the popu lationWhat is now needed it seems is a good advertising card and a few prisoners to be fed at Government expense in order I desertingIlongfelt want Cronje is in many senses a greater man than Napoleon With less than 5000 South African farmers he stood ofn 50000 troops

persons to induce1 them to commit any act offensive I or even disrespectful toward the I Queen and certainly no honorable Irishman harbors a thought of do ring so Whatever grievance the Irish people

cent other nations following until the percentage falls to 5 per cent representing those from Ireland The Syracuse Sun hits the nail on the head when it declares there js one noticeable trait about the Ancient Order of Hibernian society And that is to be found in the fact that it does not stand for Catholic priggery or snobbery At this late day the Times pub lishes statements of prominent per
