tile Third Indiana District Born in tile United States But Was Educated in Ireland ins Irish Ancestor Marked an Epoch in English History GRAND NEPHEW OF FERGUS OCONNOR In speaking of Hugh OConnor the Republican candidate for Congress in the Third district of Indiana which includes New Albany Jeffersonville and Corydon Col Durbin recently saidIIYour candidate is no accident in this campaign and I unless I am very much mistaken in my estimate of this man whom I have ob served closely for some time past he will prove considerable of an incident about November 6 and afterward When Mr OConnor whose picture we present our readers with this article was nominated in July there was a general feeling throughout his district that the majority against him was overwhelm ing There is now an undercurrent of interest and such marked enthusiasm in every one of the nine counties comprising the Third district that the result of his canvass will be watched with hopeful ex pectancyHugh OConnor was born in New Orleans at the close of the civil war in 1865 His father Daniel OConnor was part owner in a shipyard located in Al giers opposite New Orleans When the Union army entered thecity many of the dock owners destroyed their property so that the Federals could not use it Daniel OConnor took the contract to build the fleet of flatboats which were used by Banks army to cross Red river After ward he undertook the repairs of the Fed eral boats and so great was the animosity against him that he was compelled to go to Mobile for men to do the work At the age of ten Hugh OConnor was therexathooltear On hie return to America he en tered the service of the Constitution Stone Company near Marietta Ohio and gradually advanced to the position of Assistant Superintendent In 1892 he was transferred to Connecticut and placed in charge of the Windsor Red Stone Com panys quarries owned by the same parties as the Ohio quarries In 1804 he came to Corydon Ind as manager of the Corydon Stone Company and the Louis ville New Albany Corydon Railroad a short line running from Corydon June tlon to Corydon and thence to the Kings Cave quarries Mr OConnor is a grand nephew of Fergus OConnor the celebrated chartist whose work marked an epoch in English history about 1840 This man who is described by an English historian as the renowned dreaded detested Fergus OConnor was the editor of the Northern Star His entire life was devoted to the cause of the poorer people which he had espoused heart and soul He had a kind ofeloquence which told with immense power and indeed men who had no manner of liking for him or sympathy with his doctrines have declared that he was the most effective mob orator they had ever heard He was ready if needs be to fight his way single handed through a whole mass of Tory opponents at a con tested election Thomas Cooper the poet in his autobiography gives this amusing description of Fergus OConnor r who was then his hero leaping front a wagon at a Nottingham election into the midst of a crowd of Tory butchers and with only two stout chartist followers fighting his way through all opposition I flooring the butchers like ninepins Once says Mr Cooperlithe Tory lambs fought off all who surrounded him and got him down and my heart quaked I for I thought they would kill him ButII in a few moments his red heademerged again from the rough human billows and t he was fighting his way as before I Cordially hated spa despised as he waII by English aristocrats even persecuted t and imprisoned at times Fergus OCon t nor was dearly loved by the artisans and laborers whose cause he lied taken up and at this day in the neighborhood of I Nottingham and Sheffield numbers of men who wtre born inthe early forties t bear the given name of Fergus I The chief demands of the chartists were Manhood outrage annual Parlia manta vote by ballot abolition of the property qualifications the payment of fncinfcers and the dirUion of equal elec total districts To Americana of the prevent day who enjoy the privileges ofII our form of government these demands II will appear to have been perfectly reason I able They were most of them eyentj

whilom friend Eng landNot by his failure to be in fluenced by English flattery into following English advice and leadership in the Chinese imbroglio though England is not pleased about i that not by his continued friend ship and growing popularity with all other nations though England a UncleaSam is coming to the top as a money- lenderL to the nations of the world and encroaching on the business and profits of England just at a time when England hard pressed and in 5is a hole financially worried with lack of funds dull trade depressed markets t and high rates of interest needs all she can get and above all is in danger of dropping from the commanding position of lender and dictator of the worlds money mar ket and sinking to the humiliating condition of a bonower and tribute payer to other nations Already the English have been forced tosell A stocks and bonds to stave off financial k panic and the Government to riissueadditional bonds and sell them in foreign markets Money rates have for months been double the normal in London and Englands financial prestige is in grave dan ger She must in the present dis turbed condition of international affairs increase her army and navy resources and armament as other nations are doing and this will take moneyWhen Uncle Sam took 150000 000 of English consols she may have felt abashed but she was bor rowing from a friend badly needed the money and affected to be grateful and patted your Uncle on the back But ycff Uncle Sam uel still has surplus money left to invest in good security and had since loaned 20000000 to Ger many to build additional war ships is negotiating to loan Sweden 10 000000 Russia who is reported to want several hundred millions to complete the Siberian railway build a few more war ships procure thou sands of arms tons of ammunition and a few more things is contracting Y for those things with Uncle Sams manufacturers who will accept Russian bonds in payment since Uncle Sams bankers agree to accept the bonds as good as cash if desired and finally rumor has it that Uncle Sams purse is by no means depleted and he still has money to lend and other nations are seeking the old boy to negotiate a loan of a few millions Despite all this outflow of cash from Uncle Sams strong box the buying of bonds by banks and individuals though it has caused a slight ad vance in interest rates still his banks have surplus funds to loan to anyone ou proper security This flush condition of Uncle Salll in contrast with Johnny Bulls turndout pockets increasing debt high interest rates depressed market and stocks and lastly that Uncle Sam is actually loaning money to Englands rivals and probable enemies in the impending conflict for commercial and territorial su premacy is too much for English friendmhip toltaooThe Lon done prea JaM changed its loving tone ia alluding to the United States and after first admonishing gainst the danger of overdoing the loaning of motley and oaustag atrinfency in

securities and stocks by neglecting them in the transactions but it fails except temporarily be cause in other markets and espe dally in American markets these securities and stocks are in demand a large proportion of them at a pre mium and again whenthe Eng lish holders put them on the markett it is because they need the money and must sell and of course are anxious to sell at the highest price and that is to be obtained outside of England where there is surplus cash seeking good investment England may continue to whine Uncle Sam doesnt mind it He i naturally goodnatured not at all selfish very generous disposed to accommodate everybody and no averse to loaning his surplus cash to those in a pinch drawing the in terest and taking it easy if you please England has held the po sition of your Uncle to the nations of the world exacting tribute from them long enough anyhow Be sides Uncle Sam is coming to the front among nations in finances a well as other things aud he has- the rocks to do it- CONDEMNED The vote condemnatory of the capitalists war now being waged in South Africa which was carried at the meeting of the British Trade Unions Congress is a very healthy sign of the times says a writer in the Dublin Independent It indi cates in fact the commencement of that revulsion of feeling throughout Great Britain against an un holy war waged for the glorifica tion of Mr Chamberlain and in the interests of the Jews of the Kaffir circus which every farseeing per son must all along have felt to have been inevitable Now that the re vulsion has set in it will grow apace and if only tae life of the present Government were prolonged a sufficient length of time the date might arrive at which they would find themselves hurled from office by the suffrages of an iindignant and disillusioned people The friends of freedom and of justice everywhere will welcome the latest development which is now chronicled as a hopeful sign of the times and as an earnest that the moral sense of the workingmen of Great Britian can not be indefinitely outraged It is the working classes who are called upon to pay in blood and taxes the toll which war demands and it is meet there fore that the first voice of protest should be raised by this section of the Britishnation So they are trying to suppress gambling some more Thought it was dead in the city asa learned Judge said not long ago The law against gambling should be enforced or repealed As it is the whole proceeding is a farce that tends to bring law aud law officials iato disrepute Despite their declarations to the contrary the officials well know that the gambling law has been persistently violated ever since its enactment that they have made no honest effort to enforce it nor do they intend McIlO The peG ple may be

outbreak being implicated in the assassina tion of King Humbert or stirring up treason in Ireland Hon Hugh OConnor made a most favorable impression at the banquet Thursday night Had his race been run then he would have been elected by an overwhelming majority His remarks were most appropriate and won for him many warm friends Joe Byrne deserves well of the IrishAmericans The success of the splendid gathering and banquet at Music Hall was contributed to in the largest degree through his efforts Gus Kane should not be forgotten as his services were also invaluable At last the British Parliament has been prorogued and an election ordered It is evident the Govern onlysfour weeks are allowed for the cam paign aud thereby a full discussion preventedt It only took one more opposition vote to defeat the gas ordinance and they got it Those ugly rumors may not have been true but the result figured out proved correct The vote was changed rather sud denly but in time ClarksCounty Ind

calamity that of godless schools Early in July 1824 the first stone of the new institute was blessed by Very Rev Dr Blake but the work upon the building and many of the foundress plans for working were thwarted and delayed Not till the Feast of Our Lady of MercyI September 24 1827 was the institution opened Just at this time the Archbishop resolved td throw around Miss McAuley and her institute the protection of the church so he advised that she and a few of her associates should make a novitiate in the Presentation Convent at Georges Hill Dublin This community acquiesced to the arrangement and Catherine to honor the Festival of Our Ladys Nativity by the sacrifice and to place the whole work under the patronage of Mary went on September 8 1830 with two of her companions to the convent to enter upon their novitiate which lasted fifteen mouths On December 12 1831 they pronounced their vows and immediately after the ceremony were conducted to their convent on Baggott street Dublin From this event is dated the foundation of the order though the institute had been in constant operation from the Feast of Our Lady of Mercy 1827 Since then the Order of Mercy has spread throughout Ireland England Australia and America On it and i6 members may it be truly said the sun never sets Convents academies schools of every class houses of mercy reformatories hospitals and asylums for various kinds of distress have been established every where by the Sisters of Mercy The poor and sick are visited and relieved in their many necessities ky this order City hospitables prisons workhouses alms houses and penitentiaries claim the time and tonderest interest of these Sisters who visit all such institutions Too they are frequently found among the volunteers to countries and on the field of battle In a word the sainted foundress of the order prescribed in her holy rule the exercise of every work of mercy spiritual and temporal Often and most impressively did she reiterate the words The good of souls is what the Sisters shall ever have principally in view This is their beacon light this the labarum which gleams in every sky that canopies their field of action bright ening every gloom dispersing every cloud reanimating with new vigor the often wearied body and the sometimesI fainting heart Viewing the mighty work accomplished by the Order of Mercy well may every member love bless
