Qreen Street LOUISVIIU KY SATURDAY JUNE 9 i9 THE NEW ERAS WAY The New Era the only labor organ is worried or jubilant because we do not publish labor news have had nothing to say iin defense of ourC friends or the Central Labor Union whom it has attacked etc Well that depends on what you call labor news also on what are considered the bes interests of labor and finally whether an attack merits a defense Clippings of stele items roasts of labor leaders and organizations or employers puffs of political friends of labor and like stuff may be labor news but we prefer to publish something else Wrangling slurs epithets divis ions and rows among labor men may by some be regarded as labor news and evidence of activity and progress in the cause of labor and may redound to the benefit of some labor advocates but as we regard it differently have no ax to grind no political party to boost political debts to pay nor desire any graft from our friends of labor we deplore such conditions seek to hide rather than publish them and strive even by sacrifice to check dissension and restore harmony and union in labors ranks believing it to the best interests of all to do so Our friends Dud the Central Labor Union have not been knocked off their pins nor become unduly agitated over the attacks upon them in fact do not seem to notice them and besides are not so unrea sonable as to eject to the New Era- kickiug or up a dustto let the public know it still exists So there 1 has been no occasion of our defending any one against its attacks and as we are decidedly adverse to kieking a feller when hes down we had no desire to jump on the New Era There now I T HARflBUL THREATS Congressman Fitzgerald of Mas i adverseireport on a proposed appropriation to a Catholic institution in Washington condemned it as due to bigotry and declared that uch a course if persisted in would cause the forma tion of a Catholic party in this country Mr Fitzgeralds zeal got the better of his judgment While his denunciation of the report may have been just it is likely that it was overdrawn Catholic institutions from a Government view are classed as private and should only receive Government appropriation when used as public institutions as has been the case heretofore in Wash ington As the Government pro vides its own institutions Go- vernImeat appropriations to private in are and should be discon This has been done gradu for years It may be that the case denounced by Mr Fitzgerald was not of this class His threat of a Catholic party in this country however is a trifle demagogy There is no need of such a party nor does such a suggestion meet with favor of the Catholic hierarchy people The Catholic clergy and people abhor the dragging of religion into politics and venerate their religion too much to consent that it shall be a bone of political contention furthermore the Catho lic church does not expect nor seek Government aid in its work or to 11maintain its institutions and only where such institutions are used for n tithe public by the Government in lieu of providing iits own is such aid accepted in part payment for such service but never has an amount 0 equivalent for such service been asked or paid The worst thing that could liappen to the Cath a olic church in this country would be the adoption of the policy and course advocated by Mr Fitz gerald and he need not be surprised if his speech is circulated and dis cussed throughout this country not by Catholics but by the antiCatho lics who will quote it as proofof their charges that the Catholic receivingtGovernment money to support its efforts to control Government insti tutions and opposing Government andmains tam n proper nonsectarian institu tions THEY ARE TOO LATE Now that the Boer war is about over and Congress has adjourned the political conventions are taking up the sympathy resolutions for the Boers The viole thing is political bombast to catch suckers in the elections Members of all parties have been guilty and there fore it is not in a partisan sense we ridicule it Every member of Con gress and the Senate who intro duced or advocated the resolutions knew that they were meaningless would be pigeonholed in committee and never pass But this was the intention the only purpose being to give these members an oppor tunity to make a speech for circula tion in the political campaign The only practical resolution of real sympathy for the Boers would have been an act of Congress recognizing ihe independence of the Boer re publics and protesting against any attempt to interfere with or over throw them Congress alone has the power to shape the policy or course of the Government in such matters and it is the duty of the President and Cabinet to carry out the declarations of Congress The President and Cabinet whatever their views have neither authority nor discretion in such questions as was evidenced in the case of Cuba President McKinley and his Cabinet like President Cleveland and his Cabinet opposed war but when Congress declared Cuba of right free and independent and demand ed the withdrawal of Spanish troops the President and his Cabinet en forced it No such resolution in reference to the Boers was intro duced in Congress by any of the professed Boer sympathizers They simply expressed sympathy and sympathy is as cheap as ever As the sympathizers were of all political parties and the various political conventions will likely adopt similar resolutions the Boer sympathy racket will be greatly neutralized and not cut much figure in the coming political campaign NOT SURRENDERED YET The Boer war is over for the present so far as organized oppo sition to England is concerned Gen Roberts having captured Pretoria the Transvaal capital The result and situation are puz zling the English The Boer civil officials the Government archives money arms ammunition supplies and armies have vanished no one knows where the city of Pretoria Government and private property is intact uninjured simply de serted as at Bloomfontein the Orange Free State capital Of the thousands of Boer troops with their arms artillery etc only a few small bands have been captured In Pretoria as elsewhere the Boer police patrol were on duty to pro tect the people and property till all could be formally turned over to the care of the victors At Pretoria it was also found atall debts of the TjransvaalI Government had been paid ia gold and that an im mense sum was rembved to prevent capture What such a course ot the part of the Boers means or what the future may develop is the mys tery While the Boer republic have been overrun their capital captured their armies disperseI apparentlyneitherhas formally sur rendered or acknowledged defeat In China the depredations of the Boxers whom the Governmen is unable or unwilling to restrain have resulted in the murder of several foreigners destruction of property and obstruction of commerce compelling the foreign Governments to land marines from their warships to protect foreign person and interests All nations are act ing in unison except England Though two Englishmen have been murdered the English marines are only guarding the English Miuista in Pekin The other powers hav further demanded of the Chinese Government the suppression of the Boxers or they will land troops and do it England jealous of Russia does not like the promi nence of Russian officials and troops in the move and as Russian troops will likely be the greater part of the additional forcejapan Is being urge to protest against Russian troops entering Chinese terriloryrIt re mains to be seen if England can make a catspaw of Japan which can result in only disaster to Japan whatever benefit it may be to Eng land All the nations including the United States have interests i China to protect and all have landed troops and will laud more if needed and why Russia alone should be ob jected to is transparent It will b unheeded however as Russian troops are en route from Siberia for China and Russian war vessel- have entered Chinese ports It iis evident if Johnny Bull wants a fight he can get it Ed C ORear

he was elected Count Judge in a Democratic county an now at thirtyseven he is the unanimous nominee for Appellate Judge with every prospect of election As his name is ORear never being ashamed of the Oit is needless to say there is a bit of green about him For some time there has bee complaint about the telephone sev ice in Jeffersonville The manage ment employed a spy to watch the telephone girls and it seems he has reported that the girls neglected their duties and now the girls are indignant It is charged however that the trouble is not due to the carelessness or negligence of the girls but to the oldfashioned in struments and inefficient system of the Jeffersonville company and the scheme to make a scapegoat of the girls will not remedy matters We acknowledge the receipt of an invitation to attend the commence ment exercises of the class of r 9ofof the Frankfort High School next Tuesday evening The young ladies of the Louisville Girls High School have a prior claim upon the

deso late places to perish by hunger or be fol lowed and slain What an ending to a glorious resistanceI And yet the supine sympathizing friends of these patriots are unable to help them And brawling howling drunken London is clamoring for more ale more bloodI A sight for the civilized world to be ushamed of and for Gods people to do penance for that we may not all be gathered in the maelstrom of

in the cellars and gutters of London because ten of their Goliaths have destroyed one Boer David It is sincerely hoped that the remnant of these patriotic burghers may be brought to this country by the Colorado philanthropists who have offered them a home ot 1000000 acres to be paid for only after years of improvement and then only in small sums and at a mod erate cost for each mans farm Men true to principle to God and their ire sides will be a healthy addition to a coun try that already possesses some of the elements of weakness New blood in fuses new life and a republic whose trusts

TONGUE The Irish literary festival known as the Otreachtas a revival of the national gatherings of ancient bards and scholars closed in this city a few days ago It was the fourth of the kind and in point of interest and quality and number of its competitions surpassed all its predeces sors says Owen Roe in his last Dublin letter The result has been a great tri umph for the Gaelic league and nn ink spiring reward for its faith and efforts It has brought to the conviction of the people that the old tongue it still a living force and that before the rising generation passes away it again will be the common language of the sons and daughters of Inisfail When the project of holding such an annual festival was first attempted in 1897 the movement for the restoration of the old language was a limited one and the doubts and difficulties that it encountered made its success problematrical even to the hopeful The outcome shows what a few earnest scholarly men can do and the spread of the movement notonly through out Ireland but in every land where the scattered children oftltbe seadivided Gael are found is the best eulogium of such profound scholars and enthusiasts as Dr Doughlas Hyde Father OGrow ney and others who felt the beauty and the tenderness and knew the treasures of Irelands ancient tongue and literature To the philologist not more than one or two of the ancient languages offers greater wealth of suggestion and its beautyand value is becoming recognized in every land and in Germany for in stance where a notable Gaelic periodical is regularly published and where pro fessors of the language are found in all its universities France also has its Revue Celtique while in this country there are weekly and monthly publica tions devoted to it Besides nearly every rational paper daily and weekly now devotes many of its columns to the old tongue The Gaelic league has grown beyond the fondest expectations and it is today a virile progressive and aggressive national organization in which many see more hope for the future than in political agi tation A people who preserve and glory In their language can not be enslaved The language of the slave is that of the foreignerat least a nations true life de clines with that of its ancestral speech The Anglicizatipn of this country said the Gaelic Leaguers has gone far enough and manfully and steadily they are pushing back the wave of lingual conquest The rest In good time will follow The realization of the ideal of the GaelU League is becoming surerand that ideal is that Ireland must be Irish in speech and spirit and in ispiratibn and through these yet attain her highest destiny and independenceAll look like a poetic dream1 but to the mind of the Celt it iis becom fig a reality He is thinking with liner son tae great American that vigor and health and great achievements belong to men and nations which follow their own bent not to those broken loa foreign tookU The public pulse ito strongly beating with the enckavora of the Gaelic League hedbildtl It is impossible says a newspaper of this city to overestimate the importance of the Oireachtas to the national life of the country It promtes selfreliance and independence it teaches us that our high est and best developyient can ony take place on native liujand from native material and it sets up a definite stand ard of truly national culture before the peopleThe best and truest nationality is showing itself in connection with the Gaelic League and the Oireachtas is the annual gathering of a newer stronger and more Irish Ireland of an Ireland which in future must be developed on Irish lines and of an Ireland which at last has freed itself from the slavory of a foreign speech a foreign culture and a foreign development One of the most encouraging facts in conneoAon with the League is that those of all creeds and politics are engaged in its development that the humble and the well toalo the uncultured and the scholarly the young and the old of both sexes are enlisted in its study and its cause Already its vitalizing effect on the intellectual life of the nation is felt and the dormant literary instincts of the race is being aroused And besides rearing up a national liter ature and new writers 6f power and abil ity the Oireachtas and its twin sister also born of the Gaelic League the Feis Ceoil or musical assembly encourages the revival of naive music songs and dances restores native customs pre serves native folklore and sets up again as ideals the traditions of which the Irish are so justly proud The festival which was held in the Rotunda was a great success throughout a much more flattering and artistic one than even its most sanguine promoters expected to achieve The number of en werelnearlyyear and what was still more gratifying was that tfie talents and ability evidenced by the competitors was superior to the efforts displayed in any of the preceding annual gatherings- At the close of the first days compe titions a great public meetingone of the most magnificent seen here in recent yearswas held and the greatest en thusiasm was shown Dr Douglas Hyde President of the Gaelic League occupied the chair and in thecourse of an address referred to the great work that hind been accomplished during the past year in which lie said not only great enthu siasm had been evolved but a rich vein of Irish literature discovered Delegates from the highland mod and from the national eisteddfod of Wales made addresses and also rendered na tional songs in their native tongues Belfast also has had a distinctively national celebration in the shape of a Feis Ceoil or musical assembly and competi tion which likewise was a splendid suck cess In speaking of the opening day one of the papers fancifully says Even the birds were early at their songs and seemed to rejoice at the bright ness of the morning Perhaps being little Irish birds they thought that they too had a right to be active and hold their own little Fees Ceoil Who indeed can tell where they learned their soft melodies and tender cadences The competitions ire said to have been extremely interestinand the general ex cellence pf the singing found commenda tory criticism Gold sliver and bronze medals were awarded to winners in the several vocalland Instrumental contests And so it pray be seen that Irish national ist thought and activity is not altogether given up to Parliamentary and home rule agitation and revolutionary plotting In fact many of the most advanced Na tionalists believe that there is no better course though it may be a slow one to win Independencethan by teaching them the language and the history of their countryA people with a proud past can not be kept under if the story of their country is interwoven with thhirlives their feelings and their education And this thought waeoee of the keynotes of questionisI League tia with1 it the pivot on which ire whole Utuftttf movement and Its branch ton fanferriq to die Oireachtas the Claidheauih Solids one of the Gaelic papers published here says This assembly while expressing the resolye of the Gaelic League to continue with determination till success has won the fight for Irish in the national schools will call on the people and especially the educationalists of Ireland to give immediate effect to the demands of the League touching the position of Irish in every grade of Irish education This meeting will push the struggle for na tionality in education yet another step forward Its fearless and confident ap peal to the best instincts of the Irish race will not be made in vain In this connection it may be mentioned that the paper above quoted appeals to the public to call the language Irish not Celtic or Gaelic The national lane
