has The municipal elections all over Ireland took place Tuesday January 15lit So far as Dublin was concerned the greatest interest centered in this ear selection was chiefly on account of the fact that owing to the extension of the city boundaries five new wards are being added to the city area for which twenty new members will be elected This willa increase the members of the Corporation from sixty as it stands at present to eighty and to afford adequate accommo I dation for this number thu Council cham ber is to be further extendedeThe added area as it is familiarly known will meat an addition of 5000 electors to the city burgessroll an addi tion of 4125 acres to the city area an addition in population of 20000 and in valuation of close on 100000 Kilmain ham has a burgessroll of 1071 and will consist of only one ward which will be represented by an Alderman and three Councillors in the new corporation Drumcondra Urban District Council will be divided into two wardsthe Drum condra ward and GJasnevin ward with the roll of 1205 and 1050 electors re spectively and thus the existing urban district of Drumcondra will be repre sented on the corporation by two Alder men and six Councillors Clontarf has only a burgessroll of 1471 electors but it will also have two Aldermen and six 1 Councillors in the new corporation being placed in the same position as Drumcondra with 2352

elections will take place in Dublin for fifteen vacancies in but the city proper and twenty in the incom ing townshipsalThe Aldermen on the north side will by agreement retire in 1002 and on the south side in 1004 The United Irish League will playan very important part in the forthcoming elections and in almost every ward tbew National organization has put forward candidates in opposition to the retiring members who are not in sympathy with the programme or who voted for the address to the Queen The following is a summary of the candidates and thev retiring members with opinions from theC Dublin press just before the election In the Arran Quay ward the retiring member is Richard Jones He has been selected by the Ward Registration Asso ciation and will again seek reelection but he is being opposed by the candidate of the United Irish League which is organizing very strong and determined opposition to the sitting member In the Inns Quay ward E L Richard son Labor member is retiring and will seek reelection but he is being opposed by a candidate put forward by the Labor i Electoral Association in the person of Mr Fitzpatrick Richardson is a dele gate to the Trades Council and that 1 body has endorsed the candidature but the Labor Electoral Association with 1 which Richardson has been for months at loggerheads has refused to do so andI the candidate of that association has also I been adopted by the ward branch of the United Irish League In the Mountjoy ward WJ Leahy another Labor representative goes out of office this time He is seeking re election and no opposition has yet beenI spoken of John Long retires in the North City wardand owing it has been stated to some difference he has had with the offi cials of the ward branch of United Irish League he is not seeking reelection The League has adopted Solicitor Crow ley as its candidate and the only other candidate yet spoken of in the ward is MLoughlin who is being run by Socialist party In the North Dock ward E Ho o will not seek reelection Two candidates at least are already in the field for the- vacancynamely John Derwin who has been selected by the branch of the League and National Registration AssociationI and T Byrne Donuycarney who is also well known in the ward and whowllll also be supported brthe extreme Nationalists Dr Kennedy is the retiring member in = tSe Rotundawardandit is

Michael MGovern is the retiring Councillor It doubtful if he will seek reelection but the event of his doing so he will be by Mr Vaughan who has been declared the selected candidate of the ward branch of the League MGovern being defeated by a narrow majority at recent public meeting Andrew Beatiie a Conservative Coun cillor retires in the Royal Exchange ward All the other representatlves this ward in the corporation are National and Ikattic is now pretty certain meet with opposition if he goes for wardagain No Nationalist candidate however been yet mentioned in coil with the vacancy In the South City ward Gorge Macnie I Conservative is the retiring member and he is likely to be reelected without opposition John Clancy goes out in the South Dock ward and it is believed he will be again returned unopposed In Trinity ward no member retires owing to the fact that the Councillorship vacated by Gerald OReilly on his elec tion to the Alderinanship of the ward a mouths ago has not been filled up Here there are a number of prospective Councillors In the fieldnamely T J- Fitzgerald who has the support of the Nationalist organizations in the ward George T Moore who is getting a good deal of Nationalist and labor support William Nolan who is also a strong Nationalist candidate and Richard Best who is to run in the interest of the ConservativesIn Quay ward Bernard Gor evan retires by rotation and he is being apposed by Albert L Altman who has repeatedly contested other municipal elections unsuccessfully in the past Altmanp inounces thhi he is going for ward ia the interests of she League and Lab t- In the Wood uzy yard Francis McKenna retires and will seek reelection He has been adopted as the League candidate- In the incoming townships of Drum ondra Clontarf and Kilmainham the greatest interest is being taken in the election and there is a host of candidates municipal honors in each of the five wards The election of Mayor for J901sl002 YUJuUJ UWlit lion will of rnu awe an import not hearing on the question of who is to Lord Mayor for the ensuing year The present occupant of the civic chair will be candidate for the Lord Mayoralty in the event of his reelection to the corporation at the present time even other names mentioned in connection with the so that there is likely to be a contest for the Lord Mayoralty- It may be taken for granted that the corporation will be overwhelmingly Nationalist Drumcondra and Glasnevin are Nationalist strongholds bpt here is danger that one or two Conservatives may creep in owing to the Nationalist split and the superabundance of = Nationalist candidates In Clontarf of course there is a strong Conservative ole and it is possible that a number of Conservatives will be returned The re suIts could not be fully made known before Thursday GOING AHEAD 1 New Albany Hibernians Have Inaugurated a Building FundJThe Hibernians of New Albany are wore progressive than their brethren inmost cities Early last year they inaugurated measures for the creation of aII building fund that have thus far proved I very satisfactory and today Division 1 has quite a snug sum set apart for that purpose The officers and members are from among the most enterprising business men and public spirited citizens of NewI Albany and they decided to go to york while others were talking After study and discussion it was decided that alll npneys at any time in the treasury in excess of 500 should be placed in the building fund The sum mentioned is always held Intact for defraying current expenses and meeting sick and death benefits and as its affairs are ecououii ally administered and the calls for sick and death benefits have been few it willI be readily sees that the special fund is being rapidly swelled eTHINGS TO

each side claiming its man was the fastest sprinter Several futile attempts were made to de cide the question and it remained for Col Pat Nelligan who is known as the j arbiter of all differences of opinion on Portland avenue and High street to evolve a solution of the mooted question l Pat hung up a purse all to go to the winner and both Nic and John readily entered the race each confident of suc cess The distance was from High street to Portland avenue along Nineteenth Land John Walsh was agreed upon as starter Both Messrs Sheridan and Dil Ion have many friends who were eager to back them but the fact that those of the former happened to be in the majority led Col Nelligan who was a Sheridan man to also indulge in a nice side bet Dillon snot a lean man by any means and nat urally the advantage appeared on the side of his opponent But that was where the surprise came in Both were taken to High street and given a good sendoff by Starter WalSh For a distance Sheridan seemed an easy winner but Dillon sud denly gave vent to a great burst of speedl that landed him infront which Sheridan made great effort to overcome but without availllosing the race by a few feet The llosers friends declare that Dillon I who has since been entertaining his supporters with the proceeds of the purse hadijeen training for this event for sOme time pasty otherwise 1he would have teen beaten almost a block However thisI may lie he now declares himself the dieaplon raaaer of koeth ed 7 c If John H Vhallen of whom it speaks in the following complimentary terns POPu1lar FRANKFORT Successful

completed its work Ii The committee consisted of Jolin lRidt mood Chairman of the party John Dillon Willinm OHricn Tim Harriiig ton Swift MacNeill Edward Blake reamy and J P Ilayden uponWithof the

ditorial says t The idea underlying this scheme is b tonal comruii pecilried topics of public importance was an essential part of its plan of organization Among tine Chairmen of those committees were Thomas Davis and the Liberators son John OConnell and the records of the association largely consist of most valuable reports which were prepared by those committees and which applied exceptionally good pabulum for those members who were also members ofI the House of Commons and who had to carry on the Irish debates in that as senlbly Whether this precedent was present to the minds of the members of tbe existing Irish party whose recommendations are now in question we do not know but whether it was or not we repeat that the underlying idea is a good Olle and quite practicable under certain conditions Indeed throe who are ac uainted with the ways of Parliament l1Iust feel that a regular distribution of Parliamentary work such as is now sug ested is necessary to its efficient per xtnance It is an old sayingthat what Ii everybodys business is nobodys bust ess and becomes either wholly neglected r is attended to in a haphazard and lierefore fruitless way When the work Is divided and portions definitely ar anged to specified persons it may reasonably be hoped that a different result will be attained especially in respect pf ecuring that no opportunity will be lost kk- d raising all Irish questions that press for immediate attention Two conditions recedent however must be fulfilled The proper men in the first place must be assigned to each department t0n this point we are bound to say that if the Chairman of the party and the whips sis suggested be given the power of selecV ion a fir guarantee will be secured that the best choice available will be made In the second place sufficient funds must be supplied for the maintenance lot the members of the party at their posts Whatever may be said as to certainfindJ dents of the late election and as to certain vents which preceded it and followed It- tbe Irish party now constituted will be taken to represent Ireland at Westmih ter and it should be afforded a fair chance of realizing its programme It will not receive that chance if it is lacking Mftnel neaps which ought to be at the disposal of every Parliantentaryorganization IfI that means is forthcoming then we have no hesitation in saying that the proposed istribution of Parliamentary work may well lead to important practical results for the country at large ANDREW JACKSON INext Tuesday evening the Hiberuiius will be given an intellectual treat

question but his record on union labor is all right so far a- beI had authority to act the only t complaints of union labor at th if City Hall being due to those who are seeking to shift the blame on to i Mayor Weaver These are the facts gentlemen and you had bet i ter stick to the facts or the effect P on the workingmen will be the reverse of what you intend The workingmen know more about those matters than you seem ts to- By I the way it would be still be j ter to keep the labor question out of these political factional wrangles with which it has not and does not want any connection The work ingmen will be very much obliged to you if you do while they may cuss you if you dont Wise polio ticiaus are learning to let the wor ii ingmen alone UP AGAINST IT When fellow resorts to his Icesw an gets the worst of it and when Judge does it he also makes himself contemptible The people ex pest better things of a Judge The assault by Judge Buckley on Editor Knott is denounced as it de serves It was not only unwarranted but Mr Knott is not con sidered a fighter besides he is 1a cripple yet he gave the Judge the worst of it and but for interference would doubtless haveI given him the drubbing he de served Some people seem to have an idea that newspaper men c n not fight as well as write Judge r Buckley seems to have belonged to r that class but has doubtless chang ed his imnd in the past few days Luck favor some folks for hadL Judge Buckley attacked some news paper men we know the resultt night have been more serious toI hfm Greater men than Judge Buckley have tried to bully

Newspaper men sometimes exalt gerate but newspaper men do not publish all they know about Judges r I and other people If they did the world would be shocked besides some things are unprintablea I fact that some kickers against the k pressforgetan I YlCJINGtt The burning at the stake of a negro In Kansas following closely I upon a similar act in Colorado and i Texas and lynchtngs in other i States shocks the sensibilities The press and ministers denounce i jutlawry and urge respect for the i law Governors issue proclamations and orders for the arrest and prosecution of the lynchers arid therert

we do not approve of lynch ing concede that it is in violationI of law and morals we protest that the outlawry is not with1 the lynchers Lynching is not confined to any section of our country or class of our people i it has occurred pareticipants are generally the respect able element besides the fact that lynchers arc not punished is due wiltrl not furnish a jury to convict rather than any defect in the law which has been clearly ands flagrantly violated So that i f lynchingean evidence of outlawry the American people who engage in it toler ate it fail to punish it when the law furnishes the means are out laws A conclusion logical lion the argument but which as a fact we deny On the contrary the American people are the most obe dient and respectful of the law of Govt ernment based on popular consent and lacking arbitrary power and military force to stistainit could not long exist But it is inherent in the Ameri can people to have even if they have to fight for it safety and pro propertykand they believe government and1 law are to give and guarantee them these things So long as they are thus protected by the law there iis- o pccasiunto take the matter intot aits defects or as is more common officials by neglect connivance or juggling fail to prevent or promptly punish crime the American people swiftly and effectively do what wouldI not have been necessary had the lawt and

adopting resolutions i opposition to continuing the war and favoring peace on the termsi named in Gen Kitcheners proc lamation As these meetings ar held under British protection thee dispatches are doubtless intended to cheer up the English at home with the idea that the people of the Dutch districts really oppose the Boer resistance and desire British control This may deceive the ig norant In this country however where it is no uncommon occurrence for a few men to hold meetings and adopt reslutons and protests in the name of the peoplethe people knowing nothing of them till pub lished such popular demonstra tions have no effec- tNotwithstaudiug these reported meetings of the Dutch the English are really on the defensive not only In the Transvaal and Orange Free State but throughout even

by the rapid changes in the situation the Boers being ever on the move either defeating or eluding pursu ers disappearing and then bobbing up always stronger and nearer tIt I the fortified British positions seems that London did well to in definitely postpone the jubilee o the end of the Boer war Englandr is more at sea in South Africa thanl ever in her fifty years of conquest in that region with no prospect of early victory but a possibility offt defeatThe Boer war in some respects is beginning to assume the features of the American Revolution in its second year the British force i I South Africa is much larger than iit was at any time in America but the Boes are also better armed more united and disciplined than were the Americans the British held the cities the Americans were roving bands of rebels just as the Boers were a few weeks ago i the Tories were opposed to the war andl favored British rule just as the loyal Dutch are reported iin South Africa the rebellion tva crushed the leaders were ref ugees in the forests and swamps several being captured and exe cuted Villages and farm houses burned just as the British are now doing in South Africa the Americans were unable to show an army to give a battle lacked arms horses artillery even food atnmu nition and clothing but despite alll this and the offers of amnesty andI reward persisted in their guerrilla warfare at times combining their forces striking a blow scattering andvanishing as the Boers are doing the Americns had no fleetr their ports were held or blockaded1 by the enemy were cut off from all1 supplies and war munitions a disadvantage not affecting the Boers In this way the Americas Revo lution went t re uce to ar ship and suffering as at Valleyl Forge the dogged persistence of the American rebels finally defeatedI and captured the trained BritishI armies The Americans during these trying times sent representatives to Europe to appeal for aid as the Boers are doing but met with aL like result sympathy but no nation dared give them recognition not even France though Layfayette was permitted to come to America with his followers and aid the rebels on their own responsibility as Frenchmen and Americans are aiding the Boers The Boers hav the patriotism courage and firm ness of purpose of the America- colonists j they have thus far re sisted a larger more thoroughly bnY abler officers and have maintained a better equipped and disciplined force and controlled their country thee Americans The Americans won liberty May history be repeated and the Boers do likewise Were

If there be any fact that stands out in bold relief in the checkered course of the Nineteeth century challenging the won der of the whole world of thought it is the Catholic Church And indeed were there no other proof of her heavenly origin and supernatural guidance her marvelous career during the era just closed would assuredly stamp her as divine rrALthe beginning of the llate century merlin i a i iihunted in many lands In Ireland for instance the priest and his flock were just emerging from the catacombs so to speak And though for eighteen years ofeher own it was exclusively a Protestant Parliament Catholics were debarred therefrom and Catholic emancipation was antagonized by even such sterling patriots as Henry Flood It was twentyone years later that the freedom of Catholic worship was officially recognized when the longriveted chains were smashed by the giant OConnell In England with rare exceptions the- s Catholics were few and poor It took fifty years more ao reestablish the hier archy there and the tolerated little chapels of Catholic worship were con fined to dark alleys and backward streets What a change when the vitality and divine attraction of Route drew to the poor despised Church in the British Isles the radiant hosts of the Tractarian movement headed by Newman Mapping Wilberforce Faber and the rest the flower of the English universities and the glory of Anglican Protesantism Re ferring to those marvelous conversions in England Gladstone more in sorrow than in anger declared that when Newman fell1te drew down with him a third of the Anglican heavens I

Proposals of liais ing Fresh Levies of Volunteers THE STAMPEDE FROM CAPE TOWN The appalling developments in the South African situation are causing the deepest consternation in London says the Worlds cable dispatches It is now nearly three months since the British army found it possible to act on the offensive while every day there are fresh accounts of the daring tactics of the Boers who are acting upon a plan con ceived with consumale skill and exe cuted with amazing intrepidity and re source to cut off Lord Kitcheners com munications with both the Cape and NatalThe position of affairs in Cape Colony is wrapt in mystery owing to the scanti ness of the information passed by the censor but it is divined from the general purport of the news that the immediate outlook is of the gravest possible charac ter All manner of panicky proposals are printed for raising fresh levies of volunteers here including a suggested summons to the City Imperial Volun teers but Kitcheners need is capable mounted riflemen for 40000 of whom he urgently appealed immediately after Lord Roberts resigned his command The Government is able to do nothing yet to meet this need though it is stated that orders have been issued to release every mounted regular at home and in the colonies and for immediate transport to Cape Town The determination to subdue the Boers at all costs is expressed as resolutely as ever but there is none of the enthusiasm displayed a year ago and recruiting has fallen to the lowest point in a quarter of a century The history of the American colonies is repeating itself with fatal fidelity Delegates from the Afrikander Bund are coming to appeal against the continuance of a policy calculated tolead to the loss of South Africa as delegates came from America The Afrikander emissaries are informed by the war press and party that their mission is a fools errand as were the American delegates in former days The paralysis of Kitcheners vast and scattered army is apparently complete and in gloomy contrast to the incessant unchecked activity of the Boers Soldiers letters home have been stopped and the officers Kilters are ngorO sly censored owing to the bad impression created by their spiritless depressed tenor It is officially rumored that Kitcheuer is developing a scheme for crushing the Boer commandoes in Cape Colony but confidence has been shaken in the effi cacy of his tactics A perfect stampede of wealthy South Africans is taking place from Cape Town where enormous pre miums are offered for passages home not only in liners but even on cargo steamers HAPPY UNION Eugene J Cooney and Miss Anna R Schwanlger- to Wed Among the many New Year weddings none will attract more attention than that of Eugen J Cooney and Miss Anna R Schwaniger now
