Solemn Pledge to Faithfully Serve the People Rev Father OConnoll Invokes God to Guide and Bless Him THE CAPITAL CITY WAS CROWDED The weather was indeed pleasant last Tuesday when all roads led to Frankfort The Capital City was thronged by people from all sections of Kentucky who came to witness the inauguration of Gov Beck ham The arrangements for the aus picious event were perfect in every detail The inaugural procession was the most imposing ever witnessed in the States historyand included besides the military a number of leading civic and political organizations There was also a long line of carriages containing the Judges of the Court of Appeals State officials the officiating clergymen and Mayor De honey The procession marched to the Executive Mansion where it was awaited by the Governorelect his wife and mother and Miss Pauline Helm Hardiu The Escort Committee received the Gov ernor and his party and the march was resumed through the principal streets to the State House where an immense crowd cheered him as he entered the stand which was filled to overflowing The ceremony was opened with an in vocation by the Rev Taliaferro of the Methodist church after which Mayor Dehoney arose and made an address of welcome to the capital to the great multi tude and introduced Gov Beckham who received a most generous and enthusiastic ovation The young Governor stepped forward and began his inaugural address speak ing in a clear and loud voice and made a tnostfavorable impression After req ferring to the great honor conferred uponI him and the trials to which Kentucky was lately subjected he said The best service that I can render my party will be in giving the State a cleanI and honest administration of its execu tive affairs in a spirit of fairness and tolerance with no feeling of partisian hate or malice with the sincere desire toI remove as far as possible all friction and illfeeling from among our people and to restore as much as I can among them an era of fraternity and prosperity Let us all fprget the bitterness engendered by political strife clasp hands as Kentuck ians and shoulder to shoulder proud of our State and hopeful of its future march forward in the unanimous effortI to develop its material and moral welCareI Our State is a great and noble one by our united efforts we can make it greater and place it in the forefront of the States in the Union We should advance its industrial interests and we should encourage the investment of capital in its mines its factories and its farms The respective rights of capital and labor should be justly and equitably protected by wise and conservative legislation Kentucky blessed as she is above her sisters in material wealth and the bounties of nature is entitled to a much higher position in the commercial world and now that the campaign is over and we are for a while at least to have a surcease from political strife it would be well that the remarkable energies shown by our people in that direction should be turned to the more profitable employment of starting factor ies building railroads and otherwise developing our great natural resources So far as it is possible for the Executive Department of the State to aid in such a spirit of progress I promise that you shall have my cordial support and co operationUpon conclusion of his address the oath of office was administered by Chief Justice Hazelrigg The Governor was warmly congratulated by all who could reach him The formal exercises were then brought- to a close by Rev Dean OConnell pastor of the Catholic

home of Col John Meagher The reception and ball at the Capital Hotel was another scene of beauty and loveliness and brought to a fitting close the happy and brilliant social side of the inaugural ceremoni- esWASHINGTON Nations Capital As It Was One Hundred Years Ago I Prior to the year 1701 all the affairs of the United States were administered chiefly in Philadelphia They were administered by that body which Pitt the great English statesman so nobly characterizes in the following passage- I must declare and avow that in all my reading and study and it has been my favorite study I have read Thucy dides and have studied and admired the masters of the worldthat for solidity of reasoning force of sagacity and wisdom of conclusion under such a complication of circumstances no nation or body of men can stand in preference to the Gen eral Congress of Philadelphia- By an act of the above body passed July 16 1700 the permanent seat of the Federal Government was fixed on the Potomac In 1701 the site was selected by George Washington and commission ers were appointed to lay out the city The point of land on the eastern bank of the Potomac at its confluence with the Anacostia or the east branch of the river was the spot chosen by our clear sighted first President A territory around it ten miles square was ceded to the United States in1788 by Virginia and Maryland The city was surveyed under the chief direction of Andrew Ellicott and was laid out in 1701 The Capitol was commenced in 1793 but was not yet completed when in 1814 British troops under Gen Ross burned it together with the Congressional Library and all the public buildings the city then contained about 000 houses scattered in groups over an area Dfa bout threewinlle9J The walls ordie Capitol remained firm though scarred and blackened The present edifice was completed in 1827 more than a quarter ofa century after the seat of govern ment was located at Washington The Capitol is of the Corinthian order built of white freestone It is upon an eminence eighty feet above tidewater in the center of a large square It is com posed of a central edifice with two wings The cornerstone was laid by Gen Washington The whole edifice which cost about 2000000 covers an area of one and a half acres The build Ing has a portico of twentytwo columns thirtyeight feet high on the east front and on the west front is another portico of ten columns The whole height of the building to the top of the dome is 120 feet Notwithstanding the spacious ness of the Capitol it was found to beI insufficient for the use of the growing Republic and in 1885 another addition was made MEETS WITH FAVORII Lady Patronesses of the Irish American Society Auxiliary The suggestion that the ladies of tbeI city be associated with the IrishAmeri can Society as an auxiliary has met with general favor A number of wellknown ladies have been invited to the meeting- to be held Thursday evening January 3 when a permanent organization will be

pleasing The annual election of officers occurs next Thursday nightand all the members are urged to attend The amendments reported at the last meeting will also come before the society for final

MADE FAMINE IN THE LAND The following letter from William T Stead the English writer to the New York Journal furnishes another undis putable proof of English cruelty and brutality which that Government has in a measure withheld from the American public through its control of cables and strict censorship of dispatches- We have been for months past deliber ately waging war upon women and chil dren We could not capture men but unfortunate women were in our grasp and by burning their homes over their heads and depriving them of the means of sustenance it was deliberately calcu lated that we should be able to induce their husbands for pitys sake to lay down their arms That policy has utterly failed as Botha told Roberts it would fail The only re sult therefore in turning women home less and foodless upon the veldt was that out of sheer shame at the consequences of their own policy our Generals hays been compelled to gather up these home less creatures into great prison ramps where they are lodged in tents or tin huts kept prisoners under the bayonets ofsentriesTo a pass have we come from de termination to insist upon no terms but those of unconditional surrender that we have made famine in the land we are destroying the crops we have taken away all the farming gear by which new crop- scouldwtieraisedgwe shalL bonhavejo face the alternativeof feeding tlfe whole noncombatant population or allowing them to die of starvation before theeyes- of the world Of course I am wellaware there are people who pride themselves upon their Christianity who wouldexult in such a solution of the question It serves them right Let them die is the verdict which is often heard in those quarters where they advocate shooting prisoners and the adoption of stern meas uresThere is nothing but brutality for it is the word of the hour in Africa To all such persons it might be sug gested whether they had not better sign the petition to the Queen which is being promoted by a member of the Cape Par liament asking her in mercys sake to murder the women outright rather than subject them to torture disgrace and extermination by Kaffir outrage and the gnawing tooth of famine This however although a more merciful policy than that which finds favor at present is too straightforward and honest for the British Pharisee Instead of killing his victims in one ruthless massacre after the fashion of the Turk he imagines he shirks responsibility by dooming them to death by slow torture inflicted by conditions which he deliberately created The policy of Roberts is in direct op position to the rules and usages of war defined at The Hague Conference and ratified by her Majestys Government At the beginning undoubtedly some ef fort was made to act in accordance with the rules of civilized warfare but the patience of Roberts soon gave out and the result is seen in the series of barbar ous edicts which constitute an ineffaceable blot upon her Majestys reign Just as Satan justified letting loose hell upon Paradise by the tyrants plea of necessity so Roberts and her Majestys Ministers can justify every crime human imagination can conceive which they have already committed or which they are about to commit upon the Dutch republics But that excuse will not pass muster at the tribunal of history It is already condemned by the conscience of mankindDe has on two occasions offered to lay down arms but his conditions were refusedand he continues lighting To add to his determination to fight to the bitter end his house was burned down his cattle were killed his orchards hewn down Henceforth be has no stake in his country nothing to save by surrender nothing to gain by laying down arms except banishment to St Helena or Ceylon He has at least the sweetness of liberty and the joy of knowing that he is meting out stern though irregular justice in the defeats and losses he inflicts upon the men who put the torch to his home steadThe case of De Wet is the case of thousands The destruction bid homestead wee One of those acts of vindictive sav agery which go far to justify Krugera declaration that we are waging warlike barbarians What would have been said of the Germans U in the march on Paris they had burned the country houses of Marshal MacMahon or Gen Trochu merelyl because it was the private prop erty of a eltli the French army Wherein would uch an act of savagery differ from Kitchen ers treatment of DC Wets house JNatural results flow We inflict upon De Wet a loss pcSfblyof 10000 he in his exasperation pacts the war

1900 POLITICAL PREJUDICEI There is sometimes too muchI politics aud prejudice in municipal affairs This was manifested fin in the refusal of the City Council to approve the voucher for the purchase of the armory site by the Mayor as authorized by the Council There may have been valid reason for this inconsistent action by the Council but it was not given The reasons alleged were ridiculous One that the location Center and Green was the toughest part of town shows the unwillingness of the Council to purify tough places which i is most effectively done by the erec ion of important buildings to be occupied by respectable people or those in authority The plea that the property belonged to the Gas Company shows only prejudice as does the claim that it would be occupied by the Beckham militia Political rivalry and opposition iis alt right in its place but wholly inexcusable when it is allowed to influence public action and inter ests by the peoples representatives who should at least occasionally eschew politics in affairs of the general public and attend to city business BOER SITUATION The censorship maintained by the English authorities in South Africa f is evidently to cover up the real f y situation and draw the curtain over the atrocities of Butcher Kitchener l3ut the news gets out It takes l t moile han a censor to head off the t rup to date news gatherer though it I is kept from the British public The fact that Gen Roberts has not yet I left South Africa two months after I surrendering his command with honors ovations and important duties awaiting him in England is significant The Boers are more l active and bold than at any time since the capture of Pretoria are no t tnrrer restrained to the northern stains of Transvaal but are in once as far south as the border of Cape Town province menacing and attacking the lines of commu nication destroying railroads and bridges capturing prisoners and supplies despite the 200000 British ftroops that guard and garrison at every point and more troops and Supplies have been sent from England Even the provinces of Natal and Cape Town are under martial i law and patrolled Land p prevent revolt the Afrikander

force sent to check its advance while all attempts to mound aud capture him have ailed Gens Botha and Delarey ho command the Boer forces in fee Transvaal are not heard from ut the fact that Kitchener

nds is farCica1Merecti M could not worry to stay ex o tent nor effectually hold the country against a 200000 army of occupation nor do more than make desultory raids and could certainly be quickly run down and killed sor captured But the Boers control the entire field outside of garrisoned towns and lines of railroad and even attack these at their pleasure seizing supplies arms and ammunition as they need aud destroying what they do not want They also have artillery and fortified towns from which they have repulsed all efforts to dislodge them and no doubt are taking every advantage of their opportunity to seize and fortify all the mountain passes and kopjes which will enable them Ito hold the country against attack of- an invading force as effectually as- at the outbreak of the war De Wet in his march southward must have driven many English garrisons from positions captured arms artillery ammunition aud supplies and they are still held by the Boers There is undoubtedly a complete line of communication between the Boer forces north and south and that it isstrongly fortified is proven by the failure of the English to cut off or retard De Wets progress On the other hand the British line of communication from Cape Town border to Pretoria is menaced attacked at will frequently suc cessfully requiring reinforcements to repulse the Boers or recaptur the positions often after long and desperate conflicts That the Boer war is far from ended is apparent despite the claims of the English reports and that England has celebrated the victory and declared the Transvaal and Orange Free State annexed British provinces With Parlia ment in session though only for ta brief time to provide for further needed supplies to continue the war despite the careful statements of the Government officials they have been forced to admit that it may require three years more men money and sacrifice and the patriotic unity and effort of the British to bring the war to a successful issue All that is wanted tofill Eng lands cup of woe to overflowing in the Boer war is the dreaded and not improbable Dutch uprising in Cape Colony and Natal and De Wet is near the border Holland and Portugal are assum ing defiant attitudes and threatening to go to war It only tends to amuse the diplomatic world But iff they should prove in earnest they will be restrained much in the way big fellows compel little ones to behave and not start a ruction not that any of the stronger powers care anything particularly for Holland or Portugal or the merits of their controversy but their little

well as virtues When she has sense enough to know that the matrimonial state possesses great responsibilities and that she Is not mar rying just to have a home some one to pay her bills and a good time When she can live according to her husbands means At an age when she has good sense and good health When she finds a modest temperate Industrious young man that is suitable and loves him When she realizes that marriage is a great sacrament blessed by God M P W says she would far rather have a man that wears low collars and is not so goodlooking a high collared fellow and a twocent dude that is

Duck the Phpnoy Its Dignity Government of Italy Should Have Remained Out side Route RIGHT TO TEMPORAL SOVEREIGNTY Archbishop Ireland in a sermon preached at St Patricks church in Washington last Sunday reviewed the question of the independence of the P9pe and prophesied that at no remote day lithe Italian people and Christendom at large would give back to the Papacy its wonted dignity and liberty The discussion of what is known as the Roman question was especially signifi cant as the Archbishop during the latters recent visit to Rome talked at length with the Pope The Archbishop referred to the Pope as a prisoner in the Vatican voluntary in that no physical force prevents his leaving its precincts and involuntary in that he could not go beyond the Vatican without impairing his dignity as Pontiff and without seem ing to accept the situation created for him by the entrance into Rome of the troops of the Italian Government lIe said the Catholic church is a divinely created organism receiving directly from Christ its mission and all the rights which are needed that it may live and work its life and mission are expressed in its supreme chief the suc cessorof Peter and to him belong in a preeminent manner all the rights inher ent in the church and whose possession is needed for fulfillment of its mission and work willed by Christ Hence the Pontiffs right to independence and as a consequence to temporal sovereignty The Archbishop said IIIf the Pope is a civil subject of an authority outside of himself he has not the necessary freedom If the sovereign Pontiff be the subject of the King of Italy what guarantee is there for other peoples and other rulers that whether through fear or favor Italian influences have not penetrated into the Vatican and that Italian interests are not to be served The peril of natural jealousies would be the greater were the foreign countries at the time warring with the King of Italy The sole effective guarantee of inde pendence for the Pontiff is temporal sovereignty which marks out for him sufficient space on earth upon which he may work in fulfillment of his mission with all the independence he needs The dependence of a bishop upon the civil ruler severs him from union with Christians in other countries reduces his church to the condition of a national church and disrupts the oneness of the universal church Other churches than the Catholic do not demand civil independence and temporal power for their chieftains because no other church than the Catholic is a world church nor aims at being at the same time universal and one nor fulfills the injunction of the Saviour Teach all nations The government of Italy he contended shonld have remained some where outside of Rome WHEN THE PRINCE ARRIVED The other evening a quiet meditative old gentleman wandered into a some what secluded street of the suburbs of a Southern town and finding no one about settled himself for a quiet pipe and stroll Before longas the street he had selected is the recognized parade ground of the lads and lasses of the town he found his solitude broken by the arrival of several young men who at once took up positions of evident expectancy and watchfulness and soon a girl or two put in an appearance and the old chaps curiosity being aroused he went up to one of the lads and asked if anything unusual was stirring IIOb aye replied the lad were expecting the Prince of Wales along hereIndeed I retorted the old gent as he at once made up his mind to stay a bit longerAn hour or so passed and the only arrivals being those of young folks from the town the old man addressing his previous informant who in the meantime had met his sweetheart asked him if he knew what time the Prince was expected Next

immense effect in popularizing the pretty little seaside suburb so that the I visitors to Dollymount are now counted annually by hundreds of thousands The most encouraging sign of the strength of the
