T IRTiiIiRICANti t KENTUCKY iVOLUME IVNO 22LOUISVILLE SATURDAY JUNE 2 1900 PRICK FIVE CENTS AROUSED Salisburys Speech Against Homo Rule Makes Men offErin Determined F J Ills words Considered a Contravention of An Address by the Queen M Few Recruits Appear to Enlist in the Royal Irish Guards DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE NATIONS The leopard can not change his spots nor can a minister of the English crown cast aside his cruel prejudices or forego the pleasure of being insultingand domineering when he thinks triumph sin sight says the Dublin correspondent of the Chicago Chronicle Lord Sails bury the British Premier in a speech before the Primrose Leaguers showed the heartless arrogance of his nature and the brutal policy of his government In refering to Irelands demand for home rule here is what he said in part IIMr Gladstone in an evil moment for the fame of his country and for his party attached himself to the idea of the sepa ration of England and Ireland No one can say that the home rule cause pre sents any elements of sanguine anticipa tion for the future I am assured that there is no hope of the predominant partner ever consenting to give Ireland practical independence- We have learned something from the South African warhow a disloyal gov ernment in spite of warnings could riaccumulate armaments against the most powerful combatant and thus secure a terrible advantage Wh now know better than we did ten years ago what a risk it would be if we gave a disloyal government in Ireland the power of ac cumulating forces against this country This in view of the paeans and prom ises of the loyalist press all over the United Kingdom during and since Her Majestys visit to this country is certainly an unepected declaration It is a blunt renouncement of the farewell roes jMgtoLVictoria jnuwblch she expressed a hearfelt wish for the welfare and pros perity of the Irish people But probably Lord Salisbury felt and knew that she meant as little by her tender farewell words three weeks since as she did nearly forty years ago when she uttered a similar wish and therefore he felt no hesitancy in interpreting her sympathetic farewell as a bit of royal hypocrisy Andit looks like that for during all those forty years she has seen onehalf of the Irish people buried in pauper graves or go down into the holds of emigrant ships and not a word of protest or one of reproof for the policy of hate and misgovermeut that starved and murdered 450000 of her subjects ever escaped her lips publicly On the con trary she has never refused to place her royal signature on any of the many coercing and iniquitous bills against the Irish people which have been enacted and enforced during her reign Ever since Her Majestys visit was first announced the English press and orators have been profuse and jubilant in their hints and promises that a new day was dawning for Ireland and that at last the reconciliation which centuries could not effect was about to take place u Even the most rabid of imperialistic shouters the London Daily Mail more than once announced that the oppor j thejIrish question which ought to an P easy one between men who are partners with mutual interests to serve Home rulers and unionists it said are agreed that many purely Irish affairs can best jRedealt with by the Irish people them selves Trust sympathy and coopera tion will conquer when coercion has lost its power This is what the Irish people have always been saying but their every plea in that direction has been scorned or denounced as treason and the final answer was another and more stringent coercion bill And liCit is that through long experience of the predominant partners perfidy they Lave learned to trust themselves alone and their kindred who were driven into exileOf course those sentimental papers which believed there wastla good time coming for Ireland because of the chivalric treatment of Her Majesty while improving her health here are much taken aback by Lord Salisburys pronouncement but they wit soon re gain their jingo spirit As for Ireland the curious thing is that the speech baa inspired courage rather than created depression among the people and from this time forth more bitter and defiant hostility to alien rule may be expected The people lied been led to expect that the advent of Uw Queen would be fol lowed by notable measures of relief and edvanood step toward selfgovernment and Lord 3alWwry s declaration that he tan rat pee lit the future any element of sanguine anticipation forth home rule emus U what they JOt a Any other sovereign who had slot lieu a portion of bit dominions for wore than a third of a century probably would nark a visit to it by some sat of royal benefit cence and the uplifting of some burdens even savage monarchs deem that a duty A as well as a prerogative nut Queen Victoria does not appear to be built that way Maybe the strain does not run Hanoverian blood When the Fenians used dynamite they were called monsters England today In South Africa uses lyddite a still more destructive explosive or when it does not kill you it stinks you to death But England is a nation it is said So ii is Ireland according to Queen Victorias own wordy The difference is that Eng land can manufacture and buy all the arms and explosives she wants while Leland can do neither If she could she would be the predominant partner before a year rolled nouud All DR P B SCOTT Chairman Medical Corps this is but an echo of the feeling aroused here by Laid Salisburys speech and it would not be surprising if the men of action so called would soon come to the front and the parliamentary and constitutional agitators be relegated to the rear There is an abiding belief inI this country founded on experience and sustained by history that England never granted Ireland a boon except when moved by fear or when cajolery as in the present war best served her purpose The formation of the Royal Irish guards may be said to have begun its first Colonel having been selected and its first recruit obtained The Colonel is a SlIgo man Richard Joshua Cooper a descendent of a Cromwellian settler and very appropriately for his position an enemy of Irish nationality He is just now in South Africa with the Grenadier guards The recruit is Patrick Keenan a clerk of this city who presented him self for enlistment in St Georges bar rackIliln don IidWh09CTn 1tl yeas promptly placed at the head ole list of Tommies who are to form the regiment But now according to the London Ex press which tells the story a strange and altogether unique thing happened Three days later his formal discharge was received front the war office accom panied by the explanatory note that Patrick Keunan could not be attestedas Irish guardsman for the queer reason Ian there was no such regiment yet in existence Are the authorities begin ning to think that while Pat Is good enough to do most of the fighting for England it would be conferring upon him too much honor to make him one of the household troops Kennans chance however to bask in the sunshine that always true loyalists tell us surrounds her aged majesty is yet good for the officers at the barracks per suaded him to join the Scots guards for the time being with the understanding that he is to be transferred in due time to the Irish guards Besides he will be forty shillings the richer for it is ex pressly stipulated that Irishmen transferred from other regiments to the Royal Irish guards are to receive that sum Little bribes like this may in time fill up the regiment otherwise the work might be slow for the Irish are no HENRY KAUFMAN Committee on Badges longer eager to enlist They are follow lug the advice of the ballad of poor Patrick Sheehan Then countrymeNgive Dont join the English army or youll surely rue the day It is reported another young Irishman a bank clerk near Bray sought to enter the guards and thathe like Keaiian joined the Scots with the same understanding If any more had appeared to don their saffron kilts which b4WIlbeen proposed M a uniform for them the fact would dowWlew be announcedcheer fully by the jl ago newspapers Andso after much guth and both about the honor awl glory the creation of a regjt mint of IrUh guard would confer upon Ireland there hay been just two cruits What a phlegmatic and usep precUtire people the Iriah are What ai shame and a disgrace it would be if the formation of the regiment bed i i ic to be abandoned It can not filled up as the London Irish rifles were by Englishmen nor like the Scotch and English regiments by Irishmen for a condition of the new guards is that every member of the corps shall be an Irishman by birth thus making it the most purely nationalregiment in the whole army In the English and Scotch guards there are many Irishmen as the lists of killed and wounded will show after a battle Active steps for the formation of the Irish guards are soon to be taken The posters calling for recruits are unique from an official point of view and comprise a green lettering on n white ground with a shamrock in each corner They will attract public attention if they do not trueborn young Irishmen Many a poor hungry gossoon however is likely to Saxon shilling It for the barracks or em ignition are the only alternatives to take numbers of manly young fellows and it costs money to fly from this distressful country even in the cheapest emigrant shipsAs a corps dclite attached to the royal family it is thought it should in every respect be on equality with other regi ments of the household brigade An other suggestion intended to be extremely complimentary is that the recruiting for the Irish guards should be confined to Celtic Catholic Ireland leaving Protest ant Ulster out in the cold and altogether outside of the area of its creation The True Blues of the north will not take umbrage at this exception for the Ulster man of late has been like Mickey Free not overzealous lito surrender his life to the tune of a fife and give up his sowl to some illigant lilt for the fun and loyal duty of slaughtering some barbarians or burgher IRELAND AND AMERICA Youth and

were torn But we left the bloodstained field and the negroes all forlorn We started back to Imus the place we were to camp And without food that evening six miles we had to tramp We landed back at

by all means should hay welcomed the guests on behal of Kentucky But instead if this being an oversight or omission it was really an evidence of the good sense of Kentuckians They seemed unwilling by recognizing either of the claimants to the office to attract the attention of their guests to our family row and per haps arouse a feeling to mar the pleasure of the occasion Ver 1r properly our skeleton was kept in the closet and more than that our newspapers during the reunion did not even allude to the politico wrangle So far as the visitors were concerned they were welcomed entertained and feasted by Ken tuckians of all factions and parties and not the least hint given then that there is or ever had been a bit ter quarrel in the household of thei host This was decidedly proper and illustrates that Kentuckians are the most hospitable people in the world and everything else must be laid aside when Kentuckians hay guests to entertain Kentucky hos pitalitythere is nothing like it No wonder it is famed the work over Visitors are always welcome to the best we have and the latch string hangs on the outside AN INGLORIOUS VICTORY theDee war is about over as the overwhelming British forces art advancing and occupying Trans vaal cities the Boers retiring or disbanding In the humiliation of bitterness and defeat these ignor ant Boers are teaching the en lightened English a lesson in civ ilization and humanity The right of individuals and property are care fully respected Instead of wreak ing vengeance on the alien popula tion killing and maiming or carry ing them away captives burning 1 1left or looting property all is intact safe and in order a guard remaining to preserve it till it is surrendered to the victors bj whom the guard instead of being paroled as civilization would recip rocate are made prisoners of war The Boers are beaten but even in defeat they and not the victors have earned the glory of the war They are regarded as the heroes who deserved success because their i cause was just their deeds brave their sacrifices great and their whole course noble and humane I They have earned the admiration and sympathy of the world and the of their struggle will ever 5memory and sympathy There is no unusual rejoicing in England over the final triumph of the war If England has gained territory in South Africa she has added to her unenviable reputation as a robber oppressor and hypocrite among nations a big bully with wealth of money almost un limited population and resources she was forced to the verge of defeat and desperate straits to over come by overwhelming force the weakest of all the civilized nations of the world Her incapacity of government her real weakness as a military power despiteher supposed strength her monetary stringency in the face of her boasted wealth her dependence for resources on foreign countries in spite of her vast territorial possessions her appeal 1to her colonies for troops money had supplies alll this caused byaffaruotwilha leading and well equipped foe but with two rep ublics of not more than 300000 people with 1lass thin 40000 sol o diers neither armed disciplined or directed in up to date modern ideas of warfare This has not passed unobserved and though the war has ended in Englands success it has not added to her prestige but has about dissipated whatever of pres tige she had among the nations of the world What nation fears Eng land now What nation cares for her friendship What nation would seek her aid in any internationa issue What nation regards hei claims or interests in any sense It is the consciousness of this that doubtless dampens the joy oi victory in England The movements of other powers in China and elsewhere entirely ignoring England disregarding her protests manifesting a spirit not only of indifference but defiance intensi fies the fact that England has not a friend among the nations of the world and forebodes an ordeal it the near future involving the very existence of England as a first clas power if not the autonomy of the empire for as in the history of a11 nations loss of prestige is followed by defeat and decadence then sooner or later disintegration LASTING RESULTS The Chicago strike of the building trades unions is about won The contractors have modified their terms and are willing to arbitrate and seem seeking a soft place to drop It is to the credit of the labor unions of Chicago that in this struggle they have always displayed a conservative spirit conducted the contest within the law frowned down all violence and vindictive ness retained and added strength of public opinion until they have forced their adversaries to come to a peaceful settlement Such a course is not only commendable but a victory thus won will be lasting And what a change has come over Chicago only re cently a hotbed of anarchy and vio lence where a labor strike was dreaded as the precursor of riot and bloodshed The labor unions properly conducted have leavened the massof workmen and the result of the recent strike will extend this pacifying influence to the employ ers as well The Episcopal Convocation of York England have voted to place St Patrick in their calendar of saints It was certainly not that they honor the sanctity of St Pat rick or his work It may be in tended as a mark of respect to the Irish because of their valor in the Boer war or because one of the Queens sons was named Patrick though it is rather a belated recog nition of the latter At any rate it will beregarded as a queer proceed ing for the Episcopal church to admit to its calendar of sanctified a saint Of the Church of Rome But then it must be conceded that the Church of England has not pro duced any saints for quite a while The clerk of the weather not only warred but made the Confederate reunion a trifle uncomfortable But ic is not to be blamed except for overdoing the thing He welcomed he visitors with booming of thunder and electric displays of light sing and

representatives of the other organ ization was accepted by them as in every way satisfactory they agreeing to dis band and return to the only regular and legal central body The hopes of the sixty delegates and the many spectators present were not to fCl1oIfrom Herman Christen during the pre ceding week notifying the Central Labor Union that the agreement reached had been ratified by the United

individuals who have been the cause of much dissension and injury to the labor movement should be accepted as hon orary members Nothing could have more plainly revealed the insincerity of the small coterie composing the alleged United Trades and Labor Assembly Expressions of surprise and disgust were heard on all sides and prompt and decisive action was taken Resolutions were adopted setting forth the position of the Central Labor Union and callin for the appointment ofa committee off three to notify the United Trades and Labor Assembly that as it had repudiated the action of iti own representa tives and failed to carry out the agreement which they had ratified all nego tiations were thereby closed and furthe- recognition would not be given that body or its committees Recently several of the unions attached thereto have withdrawn until now only about six remain Some of the former will again affiliate with the regular organization among them the salesmen and tobacco workers Herman Christen stated that he was opposed to the action Of his body AS was also Louis Kiefer iin attempting to foist upon the Central Labor Union the two obnoxious men referred to who have been
