Manuscript Missing t i 1 j VOLUME VNO 25 LOUISVILLE SATURDAIRDBGEMBER 22 1900 PRICE FIVE CENTS UNITED LEAGUE John Dillon Addresses Largo Nationalist Meeting in Cavan Resolutions Wore Adopted Dc claring Against Discord and Disunion Thomas McGovorn Opposes the v Exclusion of Certain Members ASSISTANCE RECEIVED FROM ABROAD On Saturday December 2 a public meetingunder the auspices of the United Irish league was held In Cavan for the purpose of furthering the organ ization in the district The meeting was vejy largely attended The princi pal speakers were John Dillon M P and Mr McGovern M P Patrick McManus presided and said in their Parliamentary representatives they had a very fine army of soldiers commanded by an able general cheers Their duty was to maintain the Irish members in the British House of Com mons and In order to do so they should put their hands in their pockets Mr Hale proposed resolutions approv ing of the principles of the United Irish league in favor of a Catholic University calling on the Parliamentary representa tives to do all they could to Improve the position of town tenants and calling on the local councils to provide laborers and artisans with suitable dwellings He also proposed the following resolu tionThat we consider the time has now arrived that it will be impossible for any man or set of men calling themselves Nationalists to opPose the only national organization now existing in the country and we are strongly of opinion that it would be a great calamity to the national cause if any man was permitted to enter the ranks of the Irish party who does not agree to give a hearty support to the United Irish League and we further call upon all the delegates from the county to use their influence at the corn ng national convention against the inclusion of any man who has persistently flouted the derision of the great i tollll l coaxisJnireaTThoajas McGovern MP tor L eat Cavan spoke in support of the resolu tions He thanked them for having elected him as their Parliamentary representative Having referred to the evils of emigration he touched on the land purchase question and said that the best sign that compulsory land pur chase would come into force was that the land agents were forming a society through the country for the purpose of getting compensation for themselves Referring to the resolutions he said he could not agree with the one calling for the exclusion of certain members from the Irish party He thought they had already had too much discord and dis union during the past ten years Those dissensions had been the curse of Irish politics and it was time they should have an end of them He thought every man who was willing to work for the country should have an opportunity for doing so They were not so large in numbers that they could afford to lose one man He thought the Irish Parlia mentary party should be the custodians of their own honor and that they would be able to assert it He thought no man was so mean that he was not able to strike a blow for his country They should try to get every man they could into the organization It was said that great sinners made great saints and who knew but those men might undo all the evil they had done and act as good and faithful servants in the future Referr ing to the question of a Catholic University he said they should agitate for the disendowment of Trinity College They were all in favor of remedying the griev ances of town tenants and of the laborers and artisans who were entitled to have a share in everything that was going in the line of improving their conditionMr Dillon M P who was loudly cheered referred to the union among Irish Nationalists and said there should be no mistake about it that the work reorganizing the National forces had been the work of the people them I selves and he trusted that the people having experienced for seven or eight years the bitter fruit of disorganization and of faction would never tolerate any man who sought to divide the National ranks again He hoped they would re main united IB tie great work of killing landlordism and driving it out of the country He wiehed to say a word about the burning question of landlordism In 79 they railed the standard of rebellion against that accursed institution of land lordtetH which was planted in this coun try by the English Government to trample n upon the people and to keep down the spirit of the country la the old days of the Land league theytold the people that ae bong M there was a Jlandlord ia the country t1erewould not be peace or comfort ia Ireland Until they planted r very tiller of the soil as freemen lathe naorpby they would have no peace Twentyone yean blwtJlAdo Tee 1laid surd they had ten or eleven land Ida and hnndrede of Lend CoouniMkn ers and now after twentyone years even T W Russell himself had come to the conclusion that there was no way of set tling this question except by getting rid of the landlords That was what they said in 79 and that is what everybody said today and he said now as he said in 79 that if the people were inclined to un dertake this work and to emancipate the people of Ireland from landlordism and make them a free people living on the soil without being afraid of bailiffs agents or grabbers the only way in which that great work could be accom pUshed was by first of all an organization among the people themselves and secondly by a united Irish party in the British Parliament which would act under the direction of and in close cooperation with the organization in Ireland Con tinninghe said that a Parliamentary party in the House of Commons was not worth one straw unless that party acted under the inspiration of and in hearty cooperation with an organization in Ireland He would go further than that and say that a Parliamentary party in the House of Commons was worse than no good if it did not act with the organization in Ire land because a party in the House of Commons which did not go with an organization in Ireland always deceived the people and unless the united repre sentatives of Ireland acted in hearty and constant cooperation with the organized people at home they might be perfectly certain that the influences which were brought to bear upon their representatives in London would prevail and that those representatives would forget the people who sent them to the House of Commons If they really desired to sweep landlordism out of the country and to enable the people to live in pros perity and peace in the land they must look to their own parochial organizations and after that to any party in Parliament which would take its directions and work in close cooperation with the peoples organization in Ireland That brought him to consider for a moment the present situation They had made a fresh start in Ireland The great split which had divided the National ranks for the last ten years had been brought to a termination and a new start had been made They owed that start to the in fluence of the United Irish League and but for the spread of that organization through Ireland and the late general election they would have been divided into hostile campsas they were before In one of the resolutions they called upon the delegates from the country to use their influence at the convention against the inclusion of any man who had persistently flouted the decision of the great National convention held last June He agreed with that res d oltHMI1liewaadoeLtt4lftry pieseatwh er n ge th s great convention in Dublin they meant busi ness or not When the convention was admitted to be fully representative of the whole of Ireland its mandates must be en forced or they never could have unity in Ireland If they were not enforced he asked what would be the use of delegates going to Dublin He trusted and believed that the voice of National Ireland would at the next convention insist on the mandates of the convention of June being en forced to the fullest extent In June last the convention decided that the League as then constituted was and should be recognized as the only National organiza tion in Ireland It then directed that the Directory of the United Irish League should have control of the general elec tions and should have control of the funds provided by the people for the general elections and therefore he said that the new party was according to the de cision of the convention to be a United League party and it was absurd for any man to contend that in the new party which would be constituted at the next convention any open avowed enemy of the League should find a place What the county and the Irish race throughout the world demanded was that in the new partybe it large or small whatever its numbers may be there1 will be unity How could the country expect unity if they constituted a party of friends and enemies of the United Irish League On the very day on which they made a new part would have two sec tions the friends and the enemies of the he said therefore this wasLeagueland must not be decidedbv any individual but by the delegates of the peopleand if they were wise and he had unlimited trust in the wis dom of the peoples representatives they would take care that at the start of the new party there was no element of discord and that it was friends and supporters of thepUnited and that they would have a harmonious and united party which would fight the battle of Ireland in the House ol Commons on the old lines and let any man who liked stand outside that party they made no objection to him but he thought that in time every honest Nationalist would join the party If any partyheLeague They wanted no back doors or no enemies of the heart of the party for if thebadenemies of the League In the party they could have no peace People said to him to admit that man or this man into the Irish party and if he did not conduct himself properly they could put him out Yes but that meant that they were to commence the career of a new period of fresh discord and fresh faction Give them a new party and an organized country be hind it and then the people could call upon the patty justly to fight the battle of the people with confidence with cour age and with MtC united I unlearn the p pIc gave them a party they could not make that appeal to them Continuo bug he pointed out that for the

Iouisvliio- Diocese GRAND MUSIC FOR THE OCCASION Dispatches from Rome convey the news that on the last night of the year Qlrl HAIL the Pope will descend into the Basilica of St Peters and at the stroke of midnight he will begin the celebration of high mass and the dedication of the twentieth century to Jesus Christ Extensive preparations are being made at the Vatican for the ceremonies which will be very solemn and impressive owing to the midnight hour the presence of the Pope in the grand basilica and the cor tege of church dignitaries singing the Te Deum Naturally everything will be subordi nated to the condition of the Popes health and much will depend on how lIe stands the fatigue incident to the closing of the holy door but he is filled with an earnest desire to celebrate mass at the birth of the century and his doctors believe that his wonderful will power will triumph over bodily fatigue Midnight mass will also be celebrated in all the Catholic churches throughout this country New Years eve and the pastors and choirs of this city are making special preparations for that occasion Some people have been under the impres slots that there would be services at 12 oclock Christmas eve which is erron eous as the first mass will not take place until oclock Christmas morning Because of the early hour at which we go to press it was impossible to obtain the musical programmes for Christmas day Those that had been arranged at that time are given- Noteworthy in the church history of year is the revulsion of sentiment among Vatican authorities toward the church in the United States During Archbishop Irelands visit last year a sort of mild ostracism was ex tended toward him Subordinate officials in Rome avoided him as one representing a country where the church was under a ban or shadow His recent visit here was marked by a radical change of the official demeanor In the meantime important things had happened Archbishop Ireland bad gone to Paris to be the panegyrist at the unveiling of the Lafayette statue and was the bearer of a laudatory message from President McKinley It had been at first arranged that the Lafayette ceremony waff not to be made of firstclass iwporblccand that the Foreign Minister M Delcatse was to be the nations chief representa live Suddenly a change wu made in she L himselfLeclat WM fives to the occaMpo It being c n rr

American church of certain schis matic evils and dangers which some French critics had lloudly denounced were superabundant proof to the Vatican of the loyalty and orthodoxy of American Catholics It is uow freely affirmed by competent judges that the position which heretofore in the minds of Leo XIII and Cardinal Ratnpolla was held by Prance as the nation on which were based the immedi ate hopes of Catholicism has been trans ferred to the United States and that the fullest recognition is being given in Rome to the influence of Englisb speak ing peoples Certain it is that the Vatican is now keeping in closest touch with the American episcopate and to the Catholic authorities in America bas been delegated the important task of reviving before the world the public and outside affirma tion of the Papal claims to independence and of actively starting an agitation lin furtherance of the principle that the Catholic church as the international institution with adherents in all nations must

Delany Addresses Ills Constituents and Pledges SUPiiort Thought the Decision of the Electors Ought to Be i I TJplieid DISCORD IS NOT YET ELIMINATED A number of meetings were held be fore the Dublin convention in different parts of the Queens county for the pur pose of establishing branches of the United Irish League Two were held near Maryborough the first at Clqnoslea and the second at Mountmellick At the first meeting William Moran presided and there was a large attendance On the motion of James Gorman sec onded by P Conroy resolutions were adoptedestablishing a branch of the United Irish League calling for a scheme off compulsory land purchase calling on Nationalists to join the United Irish League declaring that they would not be content with a system of land reform which would not permanently improve the condition of laborers and artisans calling for a Catholic university and de nouncing land grabbing William Delany M P who was the principal speaker having referred to the necessity for organization among the peo pie said he wished to refer to a rather ticklish questionnamely the question of excluding some members from the Irish party He might tell them plainly what his views were on that question He was not going to direct the people of Ossory nor his colleagues in the Irish party because he hall not met them in a body It would look very dictatorial to offer any opinion on this question be cause he was elected for the first time as the Parliamentary representative of that division and consequently he was not going to dictate to them But he was going to abide by the decision of the National convention of next month He would uphold that decision and defend and give effect to it and if the people of Ossory who bad unanimously elected him said he had dune wrong then he wouldresign the trust reposed In him into their hands He had no interest to serve except the interest of Ossory and of Ireland and with the exception of those interests he had no other object in going to the House of Commons But he thought the Scandal and disgrace of the Parlia mentary divisions of the last ten years ought to be at an end They thought that the general election registering the decisive views of the people of Ireland ia the ballot boxes with such unanimity there was an end of discord in Ireland aud in Lhe Irish party but something had cropped up lately with regard to the ex clusloa of some members from the Irish party He concluded by referring to the necessity for organization Other gentle ncIIIYo o 0- a and Ids friends drove to Mountmellick where a meeting was held in the square under the Presidency of John Williams County Councillor There was a fairly large attendance The Chairman said the object of the meeting was to establish- n branch of the United Irish League in Mountmellick He thought it was the 08 memorial celebrations in Ireland that I brought about the real union among the- IIi people William Delany M P said the Unit ed Irish League had been slowly and surely making its way throughout Ire land and he was sorry to think that Queens county which led the way in other movements for Ireland was behind the times now The programme of the National organization was such that any Irish Nationalist might support It Hav ing referred to the proposed exclusion of certain Irish members from the National party in similar terms to what he ex pressed at Clonaslca he said he thought the decision of the electors of Ireland had a right to be upheld but today they were threatened with division again They had a leader who proved himself in the past when he led a small party a mat of grit of ability and of resolution That gentleman had proved himself to be ia man of moderation common sense and sound judgment when he headed a party and when he led Ireland On motion resolutions similar to those passed at the Clonaslca meeting were adopted a THOMAS COOPER piAji WellKnown Young Mans Death Shocks His Friends One of the saddest among the recent deaths in this city was that which oc curred last Sunday when Thomas Cooper passed away after an illness of less than ithree days duration For some time he had been a trusted clerk with the Louis yule Cider and Vinegar Company and it is believed that he strained himself on the previous Friday When the physician was called it was found necessary to re move him to the infirmary to undergo an operation after which he sank rapidly The deceased was the son of Pierce Cooper and resided with his parents at 1529 Payne street Pew young men hat more friends and the announcement or his

Patricks Day Celebration Was Subject of Heated Discussionj Many Members Scored For Shifting Work Upon Others TURNED OVER TO COUNTY BOARD J5 The most sensational and spirited meet ing of Hibernians for some years past occurred last Tuesday night at Hibernian Halt The call issued was for a general meeting of the members of all the divis + ions in this city to inaugurate plans for the observance of the anniversary of St Patrick but the large number who failed to attend aroused the ire of those who are ever faithful to the undertakings of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and upon whose shoulders the hard work always falls The County Board and division = officers and a number of others have here J tofore displayed much energy and ability and met with such success that others became Imbued with the idea that their presence and services were not necessary o Here Is where they made their mistake and if they Are hereafter to share the pleasures and benefits bestowed by the order they must also assist in all that will pro mote its growth and welfare County President Tom Keenan occu pied the chair and the records were looked after by Mark Ryan The Chair meetingthe membership large as to what man ner of celebrating the anniversary of Ire- lands patron saint would please the largest number The entire matter was in the hands of the County Board but it was desired that this years observance of i the day should be more general and surpass those of recent years President Keenan congratulated the members pres ent but expressed regret that the hall was not crowded Chairman John Mulloy reported that while no formal arrangements had yet beeaiaiadertthe committee had secured the option on two theaters and favored giving an artistic and high class literary Q and musical entertainment as that would 1 afford apportuuity for the largest number participatingThis would necessitate much labor and expense and led to a spirited discussion in which no personalities were indulged but those who have been the recipients of the many benefits of thei Ancient Order of Hibernians without en tering heartily into its work were given quite a warm roast During the discussion several advocated a public celebration the expenses to be borne by the divisions while others fa vored a banquet at the Louisville Hotel The sentiment seemed to favor the former proposition though there was manifest upon all sides an earnest desire to observe the day only in a manner befitting the memory of Irelands great saint After all the suggestions bad been dls cussed and the advantages of each made r known the entire affair was left with the County Board This will give each divis ion opportunity to take action and in struct officers before the next CountVu Board meeting when final arrangements i will be

day Dillonwas presented with an address from the local branch of the United Irish League a deputation representing that body having waited upon him at the hotelJohn Shied read the address from the Tullamore branch of the United Irish League The address stated that during the unfortunate turmoil in national poll tics some of the members of the branch had differed from him as to the course to be adopted but they never for a moment doubted its sincerity and puresouled patriotism It referred to Dillon as com ing among them as the champion of unity and said his presence would stim ulate them to persevere in the struggle which they were engaged in John Dillon in reply thanked them warmly for their expression of confidence in his honesty of purpose andexpressed his gratification that he enjoyed the con fidence of Nationalists who until recently were divided into different camps They were making a fresh start in Irish politics and they owed this fresh start to the spread of the United Irish League and to the convention in June last the platform and principles of which were indorsed at the llast general election by an overI whelming majority He had given proof to the country that so far as he was con cerned no personal question would be allowed to stand in the way of the reunion of the National forces and the advancement of the National cause He thought the country was entitled to demand from all others who worked for the National cause a like sacrifice of perI sonal feeling More than half the task of building up a National party had been accomplished It would never be completed if the country having once put its hand to the plough were to look back They weie strengthened by the result of the elections and the organiza tion would continue its task until the country once more was endowed with a genuinely united Irish party At the public meeting the chair was occupied by Willian Adams Chairman of j the Tullamore Urban Council John I Shiel read letters of apology from John Redmond M P Chairman of the Irish party who regretted that owing to an engagement already made it was iimpossi ble for him to attend the meetingand wished them a successful meeting from W

their overtaxed and op I ressed country but by union and organization Where was that union Where WAS that organization Was it among the members of Parliament that it was existing now when the League was ignored He feared not in one or the other The business of all true Irishmen was to give every aid and encouragement to the United Irish League Mr Sheil also read the resolutions to be submitted to the meeting which were as followsThat we cordially indorse the pro gramme and principles of the national organization the United Irish League in its demand for national selfgovernment for a Catholic university for compulsory sale for town tenants rights for labor ers and artisans dwellings and for the relief from scandalous overtaxation of the country That we call upon the forthcoming national convention to take such steps as will ensure genuine unity in the new Parliamentary party and for cordial cooperation between the party and the national organization Mr Byrne County Councillor Clone gowan moved and John Kelly County Councillor Phillipstown seconded the resolutions Haviland Burke M P next spokeJohn Dillon M P who was received with cheers congratulated the constitu ency on the alteration in the represent tlon for some years he could not hfve honestly congratulated them on that subject He expressed confidence that the League would spread over every par- iaholD which it did not Already exist in the Kings county Referring to the conven tion he said the decisions of that aeeem bll81e would be so influential and to representative of the national sentiment I of the country that it would be impossi o ble for any man to find fault with it and truthfully say that bewa genuine Nationalist He lead heard men aay that1 n nflaDI party Bathe wished to point out thai Were +irrnt

This convention in its best judgment of what was wise In the Nation alist interests passed over the Irish party and confided the control of the arrange ments of the general election to the Di rectory of the United Irish League That convention decided upon a platform and a programme on which they invited them to fight the battle of general election The Directory appealed to the country with the mandate from the convention The country had indorsed that And It now remained for the convention having created that party and by its appeal pro vided the meansin spite of certain ene mies who did their best to ruin every thing with the election fund by which Nationalist seats were wrested from the enemyit now remained for the conven tion to decide who were to be the mem bers of the future

DEAD We chronicle with profound regret the death of D MacAleese M P for North Monaghan All over the north of Ire land Mr MacAleese was well known and highly esteemed and it is not too much to say that his passing away will be mourned by tens of thousands of his countrymen The reasons which exist for the esteem in which the deceased gentleman was held are too obvious to need recounting Let it suffice to say that during his long and arduous journal istic career he won respect and popularity- by the number and the merit of the serv- Ices which he rendered to the causes of Catholicity and of Nationalism in the North We believe we are correct in stating that it was in response to the call of the priests of Monaghan town and county who felt themselves and people under a grave disadvantage owing to the fact that they had no newspaper to rep resent their views that Mr MacAleese now some twentyfive years since consented to to take up his residence among them and as the proprietor of the Peoples Advocate to fight their battle After a quarter of a century of selfsacri ficing work for the cause the veteran publiCIst has now been called to his rest Of few men indeed can it be more truly said than of Mr MacAleese that he ever placed the interests of his faith and his countryabove his own personal concerns ABOUT PRECIOUS STONES All precious stones are purified by a bath in honey- It is

yet witnessed is expected to be present several more Catholic societies having voted to affiliate with this body Those delegates who have been absent from the last three meetings are also looked for to attend otherwise the organizations they represent may be called upon to send others in their places Now that the Executive committee has been named by President McDermott and the organization is almost six months old many are anxious that it now should at least begin the work for which it was organezed Its future plans will doubtless be discussed and de termined upon and it is therefore important that all should endeavor to par ticipate In the proceedingswhich will be of more than ordinary interest From several sources we gather the in formation that the Aquinas Union will

unaccount able reason unless it be its well known antiIrish proclivities per sists in referring to prominent Irish Americans in no respectful or even consistent way in connection with the Mayoralty next year Several days ago it commended Edward T Tierney of the Board of Safety for the Democratic nomination and between the lines its purpose to rid icule and cast a slur on him was evident On Wednesday the Times States that Tierney and his friends are holding secret meetings and planning to have him nominated f for Mayor by the Republicans F I The manifest ridiculousness of this Tierney having always been i an outspoken and active Democrat is shown to be only a means p of taking a whack at Col John H Whallen who it is stated by the Times is placed in an embar rassing fix by the course of Tier hey and his friends because Whal len had pledged his support to r Tierney and Booker Reed as the Republican nominee hoping that one Qr both would decline or fail I to be nominated and predicting I that Col Whallen will likely take ijirip for his health if both persist in seeking the nomination for Mayor Reed is an announced candidate P for the Republican nomination while Tierney emphatically states IHe has authorized no one to use his llnarae in connection with the Mayor lEUyi As toCol Whallen the Times certainly has not gotten the best of it in its attempts to misrep resent and besmirch him in the past nor is it likely to do so in the future That the Times fears Col fvVhallen more than any other man in local ipolitick is undoubtedly cor fiWsctf and believing that he will jprobably oppose their schemes and Candidates it seeks to belittle and place him in a false position before the public Col Whallen has shown no dispo jsStlon to pay any attention to the failings and sneers of the Times- e is fully able to take care of him elf should he decide to notice its he has demonstrated heretofore Whom Col Whftllea favors or will lavor for Mayor on the Democratic f SepubHcan or any other ticket we Will venture the opinion that the Times does not know and if lie as made up his mind in the mat n- uanjr besides Col Whallea ythincaboutit much however if Tierney be a candidate for Mayor rouid lie bright prospects for y a union of the factions and Demo cratic success but before the latter can be achieved there must be a cessation of tearing of hair and gnashing of teeth in the vicinity of Fourth and Green AMAZED AND ANGRY The English Government is amazed and the press angry at the antiEnglish action of the United States in prospect on the HayPauncefote ttreaty and Nicaraguan canal The Government officials discreetly hope the Senate will not heed the popular clamor and disturb the cordial relations of the two countries but the press attributes the Senates course to politics and threatens dire things that such a thing may lead to war which trust be fought out on the seas and hints the thetstrongest fleet will win and decide the contest Uncle Sam is not likely to be frightened The Americans want that canaland they want it built paid for and controlled entirely by Americans The HayPauncefote treaty will be amended to meet that condition or the canal will not be built by the United States or any other government The ClaytonBulwer treaty having served its purpose and time must be amended or abrogated diplomatically and peaceably if possible but cer tainly The plea that the treaty can not be amended or abrogated without the consent of both parties thereto is sound law but treaties IUkeother things must give way to changed conditions and times besides a treaty implies friendly justice to both and a willingness for mutual concessions to the bene fit of either party thereto No government except a weak one unable to protect its interests will submit to restraint of its inherent rights and privileges simply because a treaty obstructs and no really friendly government will insist that it shall by refusing to accept a modi fication or abrogation of such treaty to do so is certainly not a friendly but an unfriendly attitude leaving no other alternative but war if oppo sition is carried that far England however should be the last to plead the sanctity of treaty her history of broken treaties with weaker nations is the same record of bad faith dis regard of justice and unfair advant age upheld by force If dealing with a weaker power she would seize Nicaragua and hold it regardless ofI all treaties and international right GERMANY AROUSED A Berlin correspondent previ ous to Krugers arrival in EuroplI predicted his snub by the Kaiser giving as a reason the projected establishment of German colonies in South America to which he anticipated the protest of the Unit ed States as a violation of the Monroe doctrine and a desire to gain the favor and aid of England which would have a greivance against the United States on the Nicaraguan canal and that the united English and German fleets would restrain the United States from effective resistance to the Kaisers pet scheme of a South American empire There Is a secret treaty between Germany and Great Britain the terms of which are unknown Whether or not the correspondent is correct inI his surmise as to the purpose he certainly properly and fully foretold r the Kaisers course toward Kruger But the JCaiaers ctfouI lass aroused the people ofGI- y as indicated by the pointed l questions of the opposition in Par liament to the Government in ref erence to it which the Government representatives seek to explain without giving details only prompting more inquiry It seems that the Kaisers desire for a large appropriation to strengthen the navy so essential to furthering his pet scheme of conquest will have strong opposition and may be defeated PROGRAMnESWITCHED When the British captured Pre toria the English assumed the Boer revolt was suppressed The Transvaal and Orange Free State was officially proclaimed as annexed British provinces proclamations were issued to the inhabitants to formally recognize and acknowl edge the powers that be and a systematic order of arrests for trea son began followed by trials and summary penalties of death im prisonment and banishment to the recalcitrant rebels was begun and is still in operation though just now slightly interfered with by Boer victories Gen Roberts was relieved of command and ordered home to receive the reward of his successes by promotion and preparations were making to greet him with a uni versal national ovation and thanks giving But alas The clouds have lowered over English glories in South Africa the Boers are not conquered after all under De Wet they have defeated the English a every meeting steadily advanced southward and now are in the Brit ish province of Cape Town menac ing the only British seaport the source of all supplies and communi cation with the probability that the Dutch population will revolt and join the Boer forces in which event the British armies of 225000 men would be cut off from all hope of relief or supplies hemmed in and surrounded by a hostile fearless and revengeful foe to be slaughtered starved to death or die of disease And no word comes from Kitchener a thousand miles in the interior at Pretoria De Wet has eluded or driven before him the nearest British forces Of the- whereabouts rJYor movements of the Boer forces under Gens Botha De larey and others or the fate of the thousands of British troops cut off from the base of supplies nothing is knownAll England is panic stricken and in suspens a3 to what news each day will bring And Gen Roberts all unconscious of the change is nearing home aboard ship But the programme for his reception has been changed there will be no ovation rejoicing and thanksgiv indefinitelyrpostponed He will be only for mally received by the Government officials England is in no mood for rejoicing and thanksgiving The Mayoralty bee is buzzing in many bonnets and the politicians are considering the claims and availabilty of candidates The party that puts up the best candi date is likely to win as party lines will not carry an objectionable can didate to victory Should both par ties nominate mere party tools as now seems probable an independ ent candidate of the right character and popular may sweep the platter and bust both slates It is this last possibility that is worrying the politicians of both parties more than their fear of each other The Louisville people have a record for acting peculiar in Mayoralty elections to the discomfiture of politicians regardless of the political party majority at other elections They seem to vote for the man rather than party for that office The Louisville Typographical Union has one member in the Printers Home at Colorado Springs Col John Lulls

efforts to afford the amusement loving public full value for their money Not only is the stock company producing high class plays in a creditable manner but it is OSCAR EAGLE His photograph will be given to ladies at the Temple Theater Monday now announced that for Christmas week such wellknown vaudeville stars as Louise Willis Hepner and George Austin Moore will entertain the audiences at this theater between the acts This means that the Temple will be packed to the doors every day next week for vaudeville stars like Miss Hepner and Moore are not to be had at any old price Miss Hepner is just back from a triumphal tour through Australia She is booked to appear in all the big cities of this country as she did last year but by special arrangement with the Vaudeville Syndicate the management of the Temple was able to secure her services for Christ mas week George Austin Moore who will also do a vaudeville turn is probably the funniest man ever seen on the stage in this country In addition to these at tractions the stock company will present that superb comedydrama Devils Mine It will be well for patrons of the Temple to remember that the curtain will rise promptly at 2 oclock in the afternoon and at night at 8 oclock Daily matinees will be given throughout Christmas week The Imperial Burlesquers is the selection for Christmas week at the Buckingham Theater This show made a big hit in Louisville last season In fact the great success of the company caused Manager Williams to add many expensive novelties to the already gigan tic company The young manager is a believer in having every thing uptodate consequently he has had a complete new set of music written for the two burl ettas a new set of costumes new scenery and new electric effects have also been added The two burlesques liOn the Beach and McNallys Reception are the titles of the burlettas and they introduce about the swiftest set of people ever seen at this theater The burlesques are really funny a word that can seldom be applied to the heartbreaking attempts at this style of shows that usually pre cede and follow the regular specialty acts on the programme These skits are funny because there is some semblance in the general madness and just enough thread of a plot to give it interest The curtainraiser is termed M0n the Beach It is hilarious affair with an abundance of song dance witticism and general jollification The first part will be fol lowed by an olio of vaudeville turns The finish is a burlesque named McNallys Reception It is up to date all the way through and introduces the t tire company It is conceJed that Hu li Morton never wrote brighter Hues nor did Gustave Ker ker ever evolve more beautifulf music than are to be found in The Telephone Girl the

the poor throughout the city They propose to cheapen the price of bread by greater economy of manufacture and also to make war upon bakeries in cellars whence It is said contagion is spread among the poorer classes of the metropolis At a meeting of the Bakers Union it was reported that 180 members of the union had taken 900 worth of the stock of the first cooperative bakery to be started The plan is to sell 2500 of the stock to five hundred bakers President Starken of the Bakers Union speaking of the project said We shall start the first bakery by the I middle of next month When it is suc cessful we shall start other bakeries We hope to abolish bakeries in cellars since we regard them as the breeding places for disease But It continued he we shall not stop at bakeries We shall open many other stores In which the necessaries of life will be sold to the poor at cost prices We shall be backed by 5000 members of various other unions and within two months we hope to have a 25000 co operative fund- President tarken said the following unions had pledged their support to the fundThe Bricklayers Union No 11 the Decorative Painters Union one of the painters unions the Piano Makers

Be Nows your chance Derondal cried the agents hearty voice When he had carried the mail bags up from the depot he had waited until their contents were distributed That was not a long time It never was in Excelsior And tonight the sacks had not been of sufficient weight to tax his strong shoulders But out of their lankness had come a surprise for him and an opportunity for DerondaI guess Its a letter from Uncle Donald A check Once in a while at Christmas always a letter inclosing a check arrived from Donald Bertram of New York And his brother who found his petty salary as station master of the insignificant Ne braska town quite incommensurate with the needs of a large and increasing fam fly hailed the advent of each with gratitude andelation inclosureI No Its a letter from theres no check He looked across at his best loved and eldest child with a smile brighter than even the welcome check had ever summoned Guess againShe looked at him from her opposite end of the table where she presided her mother in true Western fashion still being busied at the kitchen stove until the remainder of her family had eaten Between Deronda and herfatheranoisy- and voracious young brood Intervened eight or ten of them Deronda was kept busyattending to their needs She and her mother did for the rest They ate as their portion whatever was left and never dreamed of complaining Labor and service were their ethics of domes ticity But now Deronda paused in her task of pouring out the numerous cups of milk Father Its good news Keep still Floral What is m The tidings came out in a rush If you will go to New York for a visit the check will follow your letter of accept ance Therel Deronda was thehealthiest girl in town but for the moment she felt positively weak She set down the pitcher The children clamored unheeded Oh she gasped I must tell mother Then she was gone and the overworked man with the kindly face waited on the children himself Those that followed were excitingdays The little straggling low rooms over the depot were the scene of many confabulations much scheming many glorious hopes innumerable pleasant prophecies Ronda as the children called her was going awayaway into some vast and mystic fairyland which their vivid imaginations merged in the triple ecstasy of Yuletide heaven and the Fourth of July But one day order was born of confusion sobriety of hysterical anticipation That was the day Derondas trunk stood labeled and corded on the platform the day Derondas self freshly and becomingly garbed stood beside it the day that Agent Bertram and Mrs Bertram and all the numerous young Bertrams listened for the whistle of the train at the depot eight miles west hung around her with growing excitement as the black column of smoke came down like the guide of those fleeing from Pharaoh and farewelljwhichflattering to her sentimentality Then the iron beast was upon them A few passengers alighted Some express packages were banded off These the agent mechanically received Then De roudas foot was on the first step of the Pullman The engineer was looking back to see that the agent pretty daugh ter got on safely before he pulled the throttle The brakeman stood Irreeolute The conductor loitered along deferring the signal to start because the departure of Deroeda for the East was public property all along the line and the men who had known her since she wore short dresses and waved them a welcome when their train went by were interested iIn this young bird tight of hers front the overflowing family nest A tentative wbfetle gairetedoh the

aworid whesK ere 1I wore dainty clothes from dawn until dawn a world wherejthe chief function of the women was to charm that of the men to serve with mostexquisite court esy And the meed oradmiration she received when her Western dresses had been discorded for beautiful gowns was new to her Very sweet it was too To be sure she hind known what it was to have young men besiege her for dances and hang upon her words But in one case those who had given her tribute were clumsy and rough handed country boys The men to whom her later en vironment introduced her possessed that indefinable air of breeding of culture of distinction which can be neither bought nor acquired And she found the melody of trained voices at the opera sweeter titan the triple note of the meadow lark deI ment in the homage of Eldred Wier Not that in his case there was the possibility of comparison She had never been touched by the attentions of her former ac quaintances There had not been one who attracted her When she came East she was quite heart whole and fancy free But missiles the gentlest of missiles well directed did their deadlyand delicious work Perhaps these wouldnot have been so promptly effective even if hurled by Dan Cupids unerring fesoU hadDe ronda realized that she was the bright particular star of the season Had anyone told her that her piquant golden brown beauty her unconscious air of aloofness her repose begotten of prairie life and placid daily duty had won for her a higher meed of approbation than was usually accorded a newcomer in an exclusive coterie she would have opened her serene gray eyes wide in smiling in credulity All the girls had admirers Almost all the girls had lovers But not one of them had such a lover as Eldred Wier One month passed two three And always there were the same tributes al ways there was the same direct and personal deference Theaters diuners dances flowers bonbons gloves after roon visits rides and drives Always the same low intimate tones the allurement of impassioned eyes Then suddenly it seemed it was time to go home Time to go back to the dull little town to the rooms over the depot to the horde of clamorous children Eldred Viler was the last to leave the Pullman His worshiping eyes devoured the beauty of the shy expectant face His hand held hers in a close and tender clasp He bent his head He spoke in a tone that thrilled her uYou know could I have my way I would never let you go Then the train began to move He was gone Five years later there was a tremendous rush of travel Westward The Nebraska town of Wymore was one of those caught in the vortex of impetuous pleasure seekers although there were many health seekers too bound for the solacing serenity of Colorado or the golden glory of California A splendid summer day was waning when a snorting train disgorged its myriads on the depot platform A young man nervous and haggardof aspect helped an elderly woman to alight With scant show of patience he hurried her into the waiting room I tell you Ive got to leave you awhile he declared testily Ive a letter to present to one of the Eastern officials of the road His private car is due here

Place an apple in the bread and cake boxes to keep the contents moist After cutting onions wash the knife in cold water which will quickly remove the odor whereas hot water causes it to linger about

last clean a much longer time For polishing an old mahogany table or for giving a polish to a new table which will not be easily injured by a careless hand or hot dishes use cold drawn linseed oil Rub the table with it every day for a month or so and never allow any other polishing substance used upon it- When a sewing machine is heavy to work take out the cotton and thoroughly- oil every part of the machine with paraf fin Work it briskly for a few minutes that the oil may penetrate thoroughly and extract all dirt and grit and then wipe every part of the machine carefully with a soft o4 duster When the paraf fin has been removed oil the machine again with the proper lubricating oil Paraffin should never be allowed to remain on the machine for it heats the bearings and causes them to wear

Accompany Him WILL TOUR THE ENTIRE ISLAND An Associated Press dispatch from Duluth Minn says that Archbishop Ire land of St Paul is to make a trip to the Island of Cuba shortly after the first of the year by commission from the President and will investigate certain matters with reference to the interests of the Ro man Catholic Church in the Island and will make recommendations to the Presi dent with reference thereto Bishop McGolrick of Duluth has been invited by the Archbishop to accompany him The mission of the Archbishop is said to be to investigate questions in dis pute respecting the allotment of church property in the island It is surmised that the President believes that the selec tion of one of their own churchmen for the mission will convince the members of the church in the island of the fairness of the intentions of the Government of this country in its treatment of them and the President at the same time has confidence in the fairness of the distinguished Amer ican prelate When the Archbishop leaves for Cuba a Government vessel will be placed at his disposal and he will make a tour of the entire island studying the conditions and all phases of the question which he is asked to solve BRAVE PRIEST Unconscious but clasping in his arms the ciboriutn containing the Eucharist the Rev Father Ceasare Spigardi was rescued by firemen from the burning Italian church at Nineteenth and Morgan streets St Louis The fire started Saturday morning To the left of the pulpit was the altar on which was the image of the Blessed Virgin surrounded by pictures and ornaments The altar was heavily draped In accordance with the Sicilian custom homage is paid to the Virgin Mary for eight days from the feast of the Immaculate Conception which was December 8 The parade took place last Sunday and the image of the Virgin was then placed in the church to the right of the altar where agreat number of candles were kept burning The blaze is sup posed to have been caused by flames from the candles setting fire to the draperiesFather Spigardi was fn his study in an other partof the chut ch His first thought was of the ciborium containing the Eu charist He rushed up the steps and opened the front door of the large room He tried to enter but the thick smoke drove him back Father Spigardi remembered that a small stairway at the north end of the building opened close to the altar He reached the altar over this route but was overcome by smoke just as he clasped the ciborium The firemen risked their lives to save him DRESS NOTES Some of the wide trimmed bats are faced with soft breasts wings and fur and the effect is very becoming to some facesTo accommodate the dress sleeves if for no other reason many of the fur jacket sleeves are cut toIIbeU below the elbowCastor gloves are very fashionable for street wear and thenthere are the heavy dressed kid gloves with pique stitched seams J Low broad hats of black velvet or shirred taffeta are very much worn and shirred net is introduced with the velvet with pretty effect Small hats made entirely of the breast feathers of different birds are trimmed with a bunch of flowers on a rosette of velvet or mousseline Boas are worn even with fur jackets They are long and may be trimmed with many tails but the use of heads of fur animals is rather frowned upon this year There stems to be no limit to the varied possibilities of tucks and now we have them in fur as if it were not expensive enough without doubling up in its value inlhat manner Ai the season advances fur trimmings are more in evidence and it matters very little whether the gown material is cloth or lacethe fur bands seem to be equally suitable for both It is the tendency of all skirts to spread put with a great deal of flare around the feet and flounces whether they are plaited gathered or cut in circular form assist very much in bringing about this result SPANKED CREAM Mamma said fouryearold Bobby what Is that white stuff en my berries That fa what

can accept or reject It It It Is rejected the Senate wilt pass the Morgan reeoiutlon abrogating the Clay tonBulwer treaty This Is the pro grain of the Senate leaders They believe that Great Britain will Accept but if she dots not by the middle of Feb ruary the Morgan resolution will be brought forward and adopted before the final adjournment of this Congress on March 4 The Administration has no offlcli l advices to indicate the purpose iot Great Britain regarding the treaty rhe President and hilt Cabinet are unable Ito do more than gUess as to the outcome But the President has assured the Sen ate leaders that he will explain the amendment and transmit the treaty Ito London The State Department Is Inclined to adopt the view of the Ixmdo press that the treaty will not be accepted but the department is under the embarrassment of having submltte the Hay Pauncefote treaty to Great Britain and had it accepted without negotiation and It Is not Inclined to ad mIt that It could have secured a treaty like that now ratified by the Senate The President Is embarrassed by the situation but he hopIthe treaty wil be accepted for If it Is not he will be confronted with a greater embarrass ment In the formal abrogation of Ute old treaty on which Great Brltai stands It Is regarded as possible that Great Britain may withhold her ac ceptance and offer to negotiate a new treaty along similar lines so as to bl able to say that she did not bow to the will of the United States Senate The Senate however has not sough to make the treaty objectionable to Great Britain It has required muck tact to keep out other amendment than those agreed upon by the Com mittee on Foreign Relations and these amendments have been regarded as ab jolutely necessary to the protection of the United States The Senate could not agree to Article 3 which recognIzed the right of all Europe to participate- In the neutralization of the canal not could It consent to the interpretation that this treaty was supplementary to the ClaytonBulwer treaty and did not supersede the old treaty This change- In addition to the Davis amendment providing that nothing In the pro visions for neutralization should be re garded as preventng the United States from adopting measures for protection makes the new treaty acceptable to the Senate as a part of the treaty making power and so far as the Sen ate Is concerned the whole question Is up to Great Britain It has been demonstrated that the Senate has the votes to formally abro gate the ClaytonBulwer treaty and wipe out that old barrier to canal legislation and It Is the purpose of the Senate to do this if the amended Hay auncfote treaty Is not accepted Lhe situation however eliminates canal legislation from the program for this session of Congress unless Great Britain promptly accepts the amended treaty for it is not the purpose of the 1Senate leaders to defy the old treaty hut prepare the way for canal leglela Ion in a courteous and formal way respectful of the treaty rights of Great Britain and the treaty obligations of the UatedStates The articles of the treaty as amended and adopted by the Senate today are all follows Article 1 It la agreed that the canal may be constructed under the auspices ot the United States either directly at- Its own cost or by gift or loan of money to Individuals or corporations or hrough subscription to or purchase of stock or shares and that subject to the provisions of the present convention the said government shall have tad enjoy all the rights Incident to such construction as Well as the exclu
