Auxiliary to Receive the Support of the Entire- MembershipS Important Resolutions Adopted Before Adjourning Fri day Night GREAT INCREASE IN MEMBERSHIP The last day of the national convention of the Ancient Order of Hibernians was the most important of the week the ses sion lasting until long after midnight The following were elected officers for the next two years President Hon John T Keating of Chicago Vice Presidentrjames E Dolan of Syracuse y Secretary James B Bree of Connecti cutTreasurerPatrick J Morau of Wash ingtonNational DirectorsRev M J Byrne of Indiana Patrick I OConnor Savannah Patrick ONeill Philadelphia and William J Crdnin Boston The withdrawal of Stats President Slat tery who had been a Candidate for the National Presidency for the past two years caused much surprise among his friends The election for National Direct ors was enlivened by an exciting contest between Cronin and Glynn the Massachusetts delegation being divided The winner was supported by the opponents ofSlatteryAbout last business transacted was the adoption of a long series of resolu tions The present war iin South Africa was alluded to at some length andwords of sympathy with the Boers were unani mously adopted The recent utterances of Lord Salisbury in regard to the people of Ireland were strongly condemned The vote of the convention was also with great unanimity against any alliance 4 also favored the introduction of English history written by Americans into the schoolsLetters of regret at their inability to attend the convention were read from Bishop McFaul of Trenton the National Chaplain of the order and Monsignor Conaty of the Catholic University at Washington In his letter the Bishop said the Hibernian s should be so organ- Ized that when there is a question of their rights as Christians and Catholics they should be in a position to maintain and protect them in an intelligent forcible I and legitimate manner The Bishop also criticised the national administration saying in part If we were so organized can it be supposed for a moment that the present administration would have passed over in silence the outrages against relig ion perpetrated in the Philippines or that those blinded by religious prejudice would have been selected to investigate and report upon affairs intimately con nected with the welfare of the Catholic religion in these countries which have latelycome under the flag of the United States The Bishop also called atten tion to the fact that the Catholics are entitled to a greater number of chaplains in the army and navy where hundreds of brave Catholics who gave their lives to their country could not obtain the serv ices of the priest when dying Monsignor Conaty in his letter thanked the Hiber nians for their endowment of the Gaelic chair congratulated the order for its noble work and hoped for its future sue cess and growth During the afternoon the delegates were the guests of the city of Boston and upon invitation of Mayor Hart were given a trolley ride Under the guidance of City Messenger Leary the 600 delegates accompanied by the members of the Ladies Auxiliary took electric cars and visited the navy yard Bunker Hill mon ument the Public Library Franklin Park and Marine Park In the evening the convention reassem bled in Faneuil Hall and the Ladies Auxiliary was present in a body There was an exchange of greetings President Keating extending a warm greeting to the ladies which was happily responded to by one of the representatives pf the Ladles Auxiliary The convention then voted to issue

Ellbjerniana tsan to be called to or ttf der by the National Vice President of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Those requests the committee consider edreasonable ant on recommendation were adopted Though it was expected that there would be much opposition to another change namely to allow the members of the Auxiliary the privilege be wearing the Ancient Order of Hibernian button the recommendation of the corn mittee that this privilege be granted was carried unanimously The reports of the Committee on State of the Order through its chairman Hugh McGreever showed that the order the past year had been very prosperous in all branches The Ancient Order of Hi bernians made an increase of 13214 and the Ladies Auxiliary increased to the nuniber of 26711 the greatest gain ever made by flic orderCThe address of National President Keating called for some arrangement whereby the order in this country Ireland and Australia might be brought more closely together and work In con junction with other Irish national organ- Izations He recommended if it was necessary to bring about this union that the incoming national board of officers have the power to select a man to attend a conference with this end in view His recommendation was adopted The study of Irish history in parochial schools and the cooperation of the order pagatlon pressed wish that the local divisions of the order in America form Gaelic classes were also favorably acted upon by the committee and later by the national body Mr Keating also hoped that every member of the order would give his support to the Ladies Auxiliary He was glad that the relations existing between the society and those in foreign lands were of the best He favored the pas sage of words of sympathy for the Boer cause and the erection of a monument to those of Irish birth who died on fam- Ine ships and were burled at Grosse Islel Quebec The committee also acted fav orably on these recommendations A recommendation that 1200 be given from the treasuary of the organization the Gaelic League to help it put four organizers in the field in Ireland was referred to the incoming national officers with full power to act in the mat ter A committee appointed to consider the changes in the present ritual of the order recomtne led that consideration be given to the one offered by Mr Conefy of Mas sachusetts and that 250 be set

we take the following I Men of the Ancient Order of Hiber nians Catholics and Irishmen of Irish blood you are assembled here today to ask first of all Gods blessing on your deliberations You are under the protecting wing of our holy mother the church in this great cathedral of the glorious city of Boston Here you come in this magnificent temple dedicated to the Most High not like your fathers of

Then it was that the Ancient Order of Hibernians was instituted You constituted the body guard to the priest You were ready to give the signal that the euemy was coming You saved the priest and above all you saved the sacred host from being defiled I Oh that you may live always like those who have gone before you Serve God know the truth and follow the in fallible guidance of your holy mother church You can not do wrong while you follow the church You have civic duties in this country which you must fulfill It is open to you to follow out the aspirations of your mind and heart- H I read

of the fidelity of your an cestors to the church You want the land of your fathers to be great You want to see her great schools thronged with scholars You would like to see her powerful among the nations of the earth You want her people to take rank with the people of other nations The Irish boys fought not only for their priests but also for their schoolmasters It is your duty to do what you can to strengthen the arm of Ireland that she can have equal laws The church sympathizes with jthe oppressed of every land I Men of the A O H do not be dis heartened The day will come when you will see the fruition of your hopes The day will surely come when Ireland will become great glorious and powerful That day will come for that green land of Erin where our fathers died for their faith In her Waters there shall be great naviesnot for war but tb dictate peace The address of Mayor Hart welcoming the delegates though brief was happily delivered and warmly applauded The Mayor said- LadiesII and Gentlemen It Is one of the pleasantest duties of the Mayor to welcome different organizations to Boston This is one of therpleasantest duties I have had since I have been Mayor We are glad that you are lucre We will do all we can to make things pleasant for you I have suggested to your officials that during your stay in Boston we shall lay aside all our ordinary rules and everything will tic open and free to this organization We never say this until we havelooked into the faces of the dif ferent conventions andsee how they make out To this one 1 can truly say the door is wide open We have not much lik liOsloti that we can brag about but we Have met here thIs niorninj5in old Faneuil Hall With IW hftcHy slid I am gladto1 welcpnis you as time asspcia JPB jHoh you

welcome tendered to us comes from the heart of the great city of Boston and it will be honored received and welcomed by us in the spirit in which it is offered We conic here not alone as representatives of a great society we come here as representatives of a race who have contributed much to make Boston what it is We come here as IrishAmericans not to accept praise but to enjoy what we know as our rights as IrishAmerican citizens We come here accepting the kindly words and the splendid and honest recognition of the chief official of the city and we can assure him that while we stay within his walls none of those who come as delegates or as attendants accompanying delegates will in any way forget the duty they owe to the hospitality of this Bjlendld city We want to say that we meet here to inscribe another milestone on our road to progress We desire to assure him that the writing on that mark of our advance will be such as will be of pride to our people of credit to our society and of honor to America We come here with the knowledge that American citizens broadminded of high ideals of noble impulse can always appreciate what a society laboring for the benefit of humanity is trying to do We can say to them now as John Boyle OReilly said in this great city No treason we bring from Erin Nor bring we shame or guilt The sword we hold may be broken But we have not dropt the hilt The wreath we bear to Columbia Is twisted of thorns not bays The songs we sing are saddened For the thoughts of desolate days But the hearts we bring for freedom Are washed in the surge of tears And we claim our right of a peoples fight Outliving a thousand years We tender our earnest acknowledgments to the kindly management of the committee and our earnest and heart felt welcome to the Ladies Auxiliary with their eyes of Irish blue and roses of cheeksperhaps born on Irish soil They perhaps may find recognition vcrkrtfrm f2m YCiFruitwould be at liberty to offer We believe that many of our delegates today will be found cavaliers and jvillitig to take charge of them as escorts in the city We believe among us here in the great city of Boston the delegates will be found at all times gentlemen and willing to re cognize the representatives of the Ladies Auxiliary and to assist them in the work in which they are engaged and above all things to make their stay in Boston as pleasant as circumstances will per mit Permit me Mr Mayor permit me gentlemen of the committee and citizens of Boston again in behalf of this ancient order to thank you and to assure you that when we return to our distant homes whether away off in far Texas or perhaps central as distant Washington or in the modest city from which I come we will always remember the kindly thought and welcome which we have received here today This will be at all times a red mark on the calender of our life that when we visited Boston we received this kindly welcome and we felt as friends among friends Irishmen among true Americans SUNDAY OUTING Go With Hibernian Knights and Have an Enjoy able Time For the next two weeks every member of the Hibernian Knights will be busy working for the success of their outing and excursion to Madison Carrollton and the Kentucky river which takes place on Sunday June 3 and a more enjoyable one may not leave Louisville this summer Those members who went on the trip down the Boston harbor given the Hibernians last week took notes and are preparing several pleasant surprises for the occasion The Knights are noted for their hospitality and iit goes without saying the guests will be kept in a merry moodThe sale of tickets thus far has been very satisfactory and the low price only twentyfive cents should make necessary the use of two boats The entire mem bership of the company will be divided nto subcommittees who will see that the best of order is ijfintaihed Iud only the best people allowed to accompany them Arrangements have also been made for refreshments of all kinds which will be sold at reasonable prices thus obviating time necessity of being burdened with baskets or lunches Prof Tour Scahlys orchestra will accompany time party and furnish the music

Decision HI Chances of Democratic Success Growing Brighter Day i by Day Hundreds of Thousands Are Disgusted with McKln- loys I Policy OPPOSITION TO BRITISH ALLIANCE Special Letter to the Kentucky Irish American WASHINGTON May 17The principal topic of interest among the members of the Kentucky colony for the past fifteen days huts been the prospective decision of the Supreme Court in the Taylor Beckham case which will undoubtedly be rendered next Monday The Demo crats here almost unanimously professed to believe that the Judges would set Tay lor out of court on the motion to dismiss the writ of error More observing per sons even Democrats who listened closely to the argument are inclined to a little different view of the subject and for the last few days the tip has been out that the court would decide for Taylor Tips on the decisions of courts like the tips on the races are liable however to be misleading The Judges during the argument seemed to pay the closest attention to the attorneys who presented the case and appeared specially impressed with that part of the statement of the attorneys for Taylor showing that under the existing regime in Kentucky as long as the Election Commissioners choose to throw out votes or the Legislature to decide contests without evidence or hear ing there is no possible chance unless the Supreme Court takes jurisdiction in the case of having the matter righted by an appeal to the people at the ballot box Gov Taylor was here last week but just why does not appear to be very well understoodThe of Democratic success in the i iillP Lseam t grow brighter day by day The princi pal issue will be imperialism not expan sion the trusts and opposition to the British alliance The latter is one of the strongest positions the party has assumed This country is antiBritish in every sensewe are aliens in everything but language The attitude of the adminis tration toward the AngloBoer embroglio has opened the eyes of the people as nothing else has opened them to its real sentiments and policies An attitude of strict neutrality such as it hypocritically professes to assume would not have given so much offense but the moral support it gives to England thus leading European nations to believe that the Bully of the Seas would have our phy sical support should any one seek to interfere with her in her purpose to loot the country of the Boers has alarmed and disgusted hundreds of thousands who would otherwise have had but a lan gpid interest in the South African war Here in Washington the sentiment of distrust of the administration which is rampant in the country at large is plainly apparent The refusal of the State Department to recognize any representatives from the South African republics and its recognition of Lord Pauncefote as their only diplomatic agent indicates the true state of the understanding between the administration and the British Govern mentIt is not a little gratifying to observe that the attitude of the administration does not blind the British Ministry to the hostility of the people of this country Lord Salisburys speech to Parliament last week has caused a degree of satisfaction here for this reason Ills condemna tion of the policy of Gladstone and asser tion that no measure of independence or home rule will ever be given Ireland proves to the minds of those people In this country who imagined that the1 Queens visit indicated a purpose to adopt a policy of fairness and justice toward the Emerald Isle that it was only a cheap trick to catch popular favor The hostility to the British Government among the IrishAmerican element is not therefore likely to be allayed England has come to realize at last that the world is against her This administration willarealize after next November

AMERICAN 326 West Qreea Street LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY MAY 19 1900 r fHE ST LOUIS STRIKE Gov Stephenson of Missour despite his professions of fairness and determination to only do his duty has overstepped his duty and the law as well to take the side of the street railway corporatio against the employes Instead of waiting to be called on by the St fi Louis authorities as the law requires he went to that city assumed control and issues his orders to local officials to use the polio and deputies and hire extra polio to back up the street railway company in a course in defiance of fairness public peace and popula desire for a quiet consideration and settlement of the street railway strike The city officials of St Louis seem to be ignorant or too subservient to assert their right and authority ignore the Governors orders and tell him to mine his own business His course only tends to excite instead of pacifying the public mind and has encour aged the street railway company and its hired minions to recklea and defiant acts liable to cause at any time riot and bloodshed Al ready there have been two met shot by these thugs without appar ent provocation and only the strenuous efforts of the strikers to restrain the angered people hav thus far prevented an outbreak The Suburban Company whose employes were also on strike die not take advantage of Gov Steph rel1ecbutcontinuedne- Kotiations with their employes amicably settled the trouble and are running their cars without any protection or obstruction their only difficulty being their inability tc carry the crowds that want to ride people even riding on top of the cars The result in the Suburban case is the most emphatic rebuke to Gov Stephenson since it not only has restored peace and resumption of traffic but is manifestly indorsed by the people Gov Stephenson should see the error of his ways and throw his influence in favor of a peaceful settlement if he persists in his course and causes rioting and loss of life and property the people of St Louis should see to it that the next Legislature makes an example of him by impeach ment He has clearly violated the 1 law as to his authority and pro cedure in local matters- TENDERNESS TO THE OLD Nothing is more beautiful or Christlike in the character of the young than a kind and gentle regard for the old says the editor of the Buffalo Union and Times They whose failing steps are slowly descending the sunless slope of age i have but one consolation as the years speed by them and that is the tenderness and consideration of those on whose lives the beauties of morning are breaking Age is a season of physical infirmity of mental retrospection of shattered dreams and earthly disap pointments No more for the old is there a glamor in the rolling stars no more a freshness in the spring no more a triumph in the r yeas For them as iin a dream the verdure blooms the river flows the birds rejoice They are spectators of a scene whose heritage they once enjoyed and now see passing to their successors No longer sojourners in this pleasant world they are lingering fondly a moment over the memories of the past The thousand melodies of the present sound far off in their Aged ears and tat are blurredIin the dim med eyes whose tears fall on the grayes iif old affections Treat them gently youth and maiden for by their travail and their sacrifice are ye the possessors not only of existence in the world in whose splendors ye exult but also for the prosperity and happiness ye thoughtlessly enjoy Never mind if she or he be old and feebl and of humble garbthey look 1 to you in their helpless years to aid with gentle courtesy their totterin steps Gods blessing will rewarc you if you do BOER ENVOYS The reception of the Boer En voys at Washington will be one long to be remembeaed In spit of the assertions of the English press that the sympathy of the United States is entirely on the side of the English cousins the Dutch brethren will find their coming her will be in the nature of an ovation Lovers of liberty the stalwart son and patriotic women of our land will aid by their sympathy and encouraging words those who are here in the name of a sister republic which is now in danger of being wiped out by our ancient and dishonorable enemy If public opin ion will avail anything the envoy shall not go home unaided The resolutions
