toilers and our entire country Again I say you are welcome heartily welcome President Gompers made a graceful and happy response during which he re ferred to the late differences existing in this State between tbeworkingmen and their satisfactory solution and urged the leading political parties to take a lesson from the labor people and adjust their troubles in like manner and thereby better serve the Stale The President then announced the ap pointment of James McGill as Assistant Secretary Louis Kiefer M Messenger and Charles Peels as SergeantatAntM The Committee on Credentials followed with its report which recowne ded the seat lug of over 200 delegates awe g them r being representatives front England Scotland and Canada Only a couple Of c minor protests were entered which ewere referred to the Credential Committee for hearing President Gompers reed his annual re port which was an interesting and lengthy document and gives evidence of careful cad conservative consideration otfi every subject lopebedn Among the Ltnanv important suggestions therein were the following Industry wa iocepable ol full develop t i SAMUEL GOMPERS President of the American Federation of Labor went so long as chattel slavery existed I 1 hence the formation of national unions could not be effectually achieved The abolition of chattel slavery paved the way for larger industrial development and conjointly with it the greater growth and expansion of trade unionism upon a na tional basis Now as industries are fre quently merged and concentrated we present to the world the best federation of organized labor which has been re corded by history Our economic and social life presents to us new and complex problems The century now opening before us requires the keenest appreciation on the part of all that upon ourselves and upon our unity in sentiment conviction and action lies the safety of the future manhood womanhood and childhood of our coun try There have been no rights accorded unless they have been conquered through the unity the wisdom and the willing nes of those who have acquired theurto- rbu t ens ilmakesacn mec What is true of the past is true in the present and will be equally true in the future To organize the yet unorganized workers to build up national and international unions to make our organizations daily more effective to defend the toilers to protect and promote their interests in every way to assure beyond all perad venture the vantage ground already gained to progress continually in abol ishing that which the workers their wives and their children have too long borne and the achievement of that justice to which we are entitled The suc cess of these as typified by our great cause now and for all time to come rests entirely upon the working class itself It may be true that others by their sympa thetic action may aid us in our move ments but we resent the claims or the promises of any and all that the amelior ation in the condition of the wagework ers or their disenthralment from every form of justice depends upon any other power than that of the working people themselves by and through their trade union effort The American Federation of Labor has not indulged in any exhaustive or elaborate platform of abstract principles It recognizes that the best organization for the working people is aji organization of the working people and that is the trade union to assure and insure the right of the trade unions to selfgovernment and yet to insist that the toilers in each union shall appreciate the interdependence of organizations and by the federa tion of all to present a solid phalanx of the workers of America Realizing the necessity for the unity of the wageearners of our country the American Federation of Labor has upon all occasions declared that trade unions should open their portals to all wageworker irrespective of creed color nationality sex or politics Nothing has transpired in recent years which has called for a change of our declared policy upon this question on the contrary every evidence tends to confirm us in this conviction for even if it were not a matter of principle selfpreservation orgauizefnteJJlgently cause In making the declaration we have we do not necessarily proclaim that the social barriers existing between the whites and blacks could or should be felled with one stroke of the pen but when white and black workers are compelled to work side by side under the same adverse circumstances and under equally unfair conditions it seems an anomaly that we should refuse to accord the right of organization to workers s because of a difference in their color Unless we shall give the negro workers the opportunity to organize and thud an4dendd and cupidity of their

IRISH AMERICAN 32i West Qreei StreetIi LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY DECEMBER 8 1900 THE BAG AN CASE The case of Gen Egan under suspension for insubordination and disrespect to his superior officer is again the subject of criticism Dur ing the SpanishAmerican war Gen Egan publicly condemned Gen Miles the commanding general of the army for which he was court martialed and sentenced to degrada tion and dismissal from the army Gen Egans offense was a flagrant vjolation of military law and discipline President McKinley while approving the finding of the court commuted the sentence to suspen sion from service because of Gen Egans long and faithful service in the army and his previous unblem ished record Gen Egan is near the age for retirement and is in Washington to ask it but has not formally done so Under the law he can not be placed on the retired list while under sentence except by special act and consent of Congress To this the President and War De partment seem favorable and if allowed to take its course quietly as it should it would not even ex cite comment for it is only a matter of military discipline which the War Department is able and willing to settle and affects only Gen Egan I But the same elements which made it an issue in the Presidential t campaign are again discussing it and in the same spirit of misrepresentation and injustice to Egan and the President partisanism and en mity to Egau because he is Irish This last reason may grate on the ears of some of our Irish contemporaries whose partisanism has led them unconsciously to aid in the effort to injure Egan and further humiliate him by opposing the President who has so far saved hima from utter disgrace and is seeking- to end the incident and allow Gen Egan to retire with the usual an nuity to provide for him in his closing years In such a case poli tics should not enter but unfortu nately partisanism and bigotry are too often the motive rather than law and justice which seem to have been the sole motive of the President and military authorities They recognize the fact that Egaus offense was such as must be condemned and punished to main tain discipline in the army but that as a matter of justice Gen Egans faithful life service in the army entitled him to exemption from the disgrace of dishonorable dismissal and the humiliation of dependence in his old age The fact that Gen Egan is an Irishman and may disagree with them pout ically is ignored They see him only a soldier who has served his country well his record marred by but one offense which bars him from that to which his services entitle himhonorable retirement and provision for his last years and this they are seeking to obtain lor him by special act and consent of Congww the only power under our Government that can grant it cIca this effort though it s- tedianovtttionthefriendsof an admit jjustice and certainly the friends of Gen jBgan should approve and support Prudent McKinley and the War Department even though they din agrt tpolitically Itis not political advantage power or honor that is sought for Gen Egan but simply jnsticxand recompense due an old soldier for a lifework to the service of his country marred by but one bed mark Of course the bigots can tbei expected to rea ytliuqfi about all that for their IitiotallbMedI- on Egan personally who can not help and would not ifrhe could rJ r w n I that he is Irish j but no one wh favors justice regardless of race I and creed and certainly no Irish I preferIi I i such a case As we go to press the dispatch state that Gen Egan has been re stored to his former standing in the army and retired by the President FALLACIES EXPLODED Now that the political campaign is over Congress iu session and the Government policies are declared many of the fallacies of politicians are exploded One of the stron cards of the opposition to the ad ministration was the alleged secret alliance with England aud the favoritism toward England by the McKinley Cabinet Notwithstand iug the fact that under our system of government such an alliance could not be it was in the heat of the campaign accepted It has been proven false by the firmL declaration of President McKinley- in regard to the Nicaragua canal1 bill and the HayPauncefote treaty pending in Congress Pres ident McKinley recommends the canal bill in his message but he has notified its advocates that the ClaytonBulwer treaty under which England claims the right of consent and joint control of the canal must be abrogatedthat the bill must provide and the treaty must be so changed as to allow the canal to be built owned and controlled independently by theTJnitedState cr V t he will veto the bill It goes with out saying that Johnny Bull will1I not like that MAY YET PROVE THE SPARK Kruger in Europe though he acts and speaks with all due regard to the proprieties is likely to prove- a bull in a china shop France and Holland have received him enthusi astically Belgium courteously iin Germany the people greeted him with ovations but the Government snubbed him the others wonder iif he will visit them and all are anxious to know if he will go to Russia and how he will be received there should he go He asks that Eng land be urged by the nations to stop the pillage and slaughter of his people Already his request fis being considered by the Parliament- of France and Holland Italy has agreed to consider it and it is not unlikely to be introduced in th German Parliament despite th j Emperor that Russia will approve- it seems to be conceded the United States Government long ago sugf gested it But the situation fist such England claiming possession of the Boer territory by right of conquest and having declared itt annexed provinces and the Boers her subjects and now in rebellion it remains to be seen how far such action of other governments can go without being treated as unfriendly under international equity It f not improbable that the Boer question may prove the spark to start the long impending conflagration a general European war which all desire to avert and England dreads TheaatiEnglish sentiment seem to be as strong in Germany as in France as evidenced brtheen thusiastic receptions of Presidentlt Kruger as far as he went on his way to Berlin before he received word that the Emperor disapproved his presence and would not receive him Kruger though

ex traordinary story coming simultaneously from Ireland and from the continent It seems that a widespread conviction prevails among the peasantry of the Emerald Isle and likewise in many foreign capitals that the Boer General De Wet who is giving so much trouble to the English troops in South Africa is no other than Charles Stewart Parnell According to this story which is improbable if not impossible Parnell realizing that his existence after the scandal in connection with the OShea divorce case would constitute a source of weakness to the cause of his belcved country resolved to disappear either forever or until such a time as the fact that he was still alive could no longer injuriously affect the destinies of Erin It is asserted that the coffin purporting to contain his body contains nothing but a mere lay figure or sand anti that after shaving off his beard he made his escape in the disguise of a priest By those who have seen both Parnell and De Wet iit is asserted that there is a great physical resemblance and likewise similarity of manner between the two men while it can not be denied that they have in common a peculiar fondness for investing their movements with the most profound and impenetrable mystery However this may be the fact remains that the phenomenal successes of De Wet are looked upon in Ireland as so many victories fcr one whose memory is still green in the hearts of his country men and who is still regarded in the light of a national hero Indeed noth popularize strange belief that the mysterious and elusive De Wet is identical with Charles Stewart Parnell REMARKABLE INNOVATION Probably for the first time in the his tory of the church in New Jersey a seen lar occupation will be taught in St Mich JerseyCitybe taught a lesson dayiht in

Justice Without God Must Col lapse Says the Holy Father On Belief In Divinity of Christ Depends Civilization of Nations A STRONG APPEAL TO CHRISTIANS A copy of the Popes encyclical on Jesus Christ the Redeemer has just been received in New York from Rome The encyclical which is addressed to all the Patriarchs Primates Archbishops and Bishops of the Roman catholic church throughout the world is intended by the Pope as an endofthecentury ad dressed to the Catholic faithful The Pope says although it is not possi ble to look to the future without anxiety and the dangers to be feared are neither light nor few through Gods goodness the end of the century seems to afford some ground for hope and comfort Despite all the attractions of the world and so many obstacles to piety at a single sign from the Roman Pontiff a great multitude of pilgrims thronged Rome during the YearWho asks the Pope could fail to be moved by this spectacle of extraordi nary devotion toward the Savior This fervor of so many thousands of men join ing with one mind and one heart from the rising to the setting of the sun in acclaiming and exhorting the name and the glories of Jesus Christ would readily be deemed worthy of the noblest days of ChristianityThe Christ the Pope says must be sought absolutely from the church and accordingly as Christ is the way for men so also is the churchHe of himself and by His nature she by the office conferred on her and the communication of power Therefore contends the Pope whosoever looks for salvation outside of the church goes astray and labors in vain The case he says is almost the same with States as with individuals they too must end disastrously if they depart from the way The Son of God the creater and redeemer of human nature is king and lord of the world and has supreme power over men singly and collectively The Pope next declares that by a con fusion of ideas both rulers andsubjects were led away from the true path for they needed what was wantinga sure guide and support And he asks did we not every day see States which labored hard to insure an increased pub licprosperity distressed and suffering i many respects and these of the highest importance But those who are responsi ble for this do not perceive well enough the effects of what they are doing Fo the idea of God jjudging what is good anti what is evil being given up the laws must lose their chief authority and jus tice collapsetwo bonds of the strongest kind which are essentially necessary to human society In like manner when the hope and expectation of eternal happiness has disappeared there is a disposition to thirst eagerly for earthly goods and every on endeavors by all the means in his power to grab as much of them as he can fo himself Hence arise jealous rivalry

Krlnglo Has Established Headquarters at tho Dig Store Toys and Christmas Goods of All Descriptions Are On Exhibition It Is a World of Wonders Tito Firm Prepares to Move Moving a great department store is about as arduous a task as one may well imagine It means a tremendous amount of expense and a still more tremendous amount of labor It is such on undertaking that con fronts the mammoth establishment of J Bacon Sons Immediately after the holidays the big concern willremove from its present quarters on Market street above Preston to the splendid new building on Market just off of Fourth avenue that is now being pre pared for it- However the Bacons had expected to move before now With that object in view the heads of the various depart ments and there are scores of themlaid- in holiday supplies ad lib for display in the firms new home Extraordinary large assortments of Christmas goods of every variety were ordered But a few weeks ago it was discovered that the new house couldnt possibly be completed by the expected time As the present quarters are entirely too small to accommodate the tccordbreaking stock a huge sacrifice sale of Christmas goods has been found imperative in order to make room and in order also to do away with the necessity of moving a great quantity of goods to the new build ing next month As a result Bacons is a veritable bee hive of trade and industry these days Drawn by the exceedingly low prices throngs of shoppers fill every floor and line every counter Hundreds of clerks cash boys floor walkers bundle wrap pers porters accountants and cashiers an army of them in allare kept as busy as so many ants in an ant hill Mean while on the sidewalk great crowds of happy children watch the wonderful me chanical toys in the big show windows At times the excited youngsters block the wayThe variety and number of Christmas staples and novelties are unlimited Anybody and everybody may find what they want at Bacons and the cost will be satisfactory too So many pretty things at such astonishingly low prices were never seen before in Louisville Both hemispheres have been searched for quaint and beautiful holiday goods Santa Claus may fill his pack a thousand times behindeselectefrom The displays in the windows afford a fit foretaste of the childrens wonderland that unfolds within To theyoungsters who flatten their noses against the plate glass the sight must be like a bit of Christ mas fairyland Electrical and mechani cal toys evoke murmers of delight and amazement from the juvenile audiences There is a circus
