is due to the fact that JOHN MGUIRE I Popular Young Singers First St Patricks Night the real issue and cause of the racket i manYagero lest it have the effect of arousing public sentiment against them and fore arbitrarnY methods or have their monopoly bursted h 1ch q iin Ithe controversy though only the Nations1 League and the American League appear prominently the real issue being all the players and other managers against the National League conn ball in the most arrogant manner regardless of rights of corporations or Individuals and even in violation of law as has bayereached the courts No league or association can have a club In any place with out permission of the National League no club in the country can employ a player retain him or transfer him to an other club if the National League objects but the National League drafts players from any minor league club to their own clubs and the minor league club must submit or be outlawedand the player must go where he is sent under terms conditions and salary as dictated by the National Lague or be blacklisted out o the game This is about a fair summa cause of the kick of the minor dleagues led by the American League against the National League but this has been going on for years with the same old resultthe National League squelchedI sthe minor leagues or forced them to sub nit But there is another and graver charg- against the National League that is most threatening and about which all the victims of its injustice seem to rally which has been kept secret and only alluded to sneeringly or to place it in a false light It is that of the players who for years have protested in vain against the arbitrary injustice and slavery of the National League Under its dictation none I can play with any club anywhere against its objection it fixes time salaries terms and conditions of the players and enforces or violates contracts at will player under contract is without his con sent liable to be sold or drafted and must go where ordered on whatever terms the National League names he iisI liable to suspension on the bench with out pay defense or protest he may be fined in any amount with or without cause and his salary forfeited The reserve clause and blacklist in direct viola tion of law as decided by the courts but still enforced by the National League the acme of tyranny in a free and enlightened age are the real issue on which the breach is widest and the fight will be made if it comes toacrisis Under the reserve clause a player is retained under the control of the National League after the expiration of his con tract and Is not entitled to pay nor al anydubtease from the National League And the blacklisttor any violation of con tract or failure to comply with any of these arbitrary regulations or decrees of the National Leagues a player is ostra dud from the game entirely and any servedlikewisefranchise and players The players have MllaProtective AMOcktiouV aimlW to a labor OaI J 1 t Itn J They presented their grievances and pell tion to the National League several months ago These have not yet been answered no players have signed con tracts for the future and will not sign till ordered by their protective union The American League has granted the petition and players are allowed to sign contracts with Itr This makes the issue a trifle plainer The American League will be union the National League If it does not grant the players demand will be nonunion and that is really what all the row is about kicked up by the Na tional League for the players and the minor leagues have thus far kept very quietWhat time National League will finally do is a problem but Its course Indicates that it will trythe scab game or it may be it is putting upa bluff Its ignor lug the players petition but not refusing It its holding on to all players though it has nearly double the necessary number Its boasting of its capitaltand contrdUof the game and threats of the blacklist and finally its reviyal of the American Association1j with free iranchises and free players to whoever will accept them In certain cities to compete with or shut out the otlerleague union clubsis but a rehearsal of the bluster of nonunion em ployers when their employes dare make demands Workingmen fully understand this and the general public are not so blind as the base ball magnates imagine as they will very likely learn if they persist and cause n strike of the players for that is what it wi1end in if not granted concessions by the bosses Louisville is hooked for one of the free association clubs to shut out any other league and we will likely have it this season provided of course that the bluff doesnt collapse or the National Lague has any surplus players to spare when the time comes to play ball As these surplus players are claimed under the disputed reserve rule which the players protest against and the courts have condemned the pros pects for a winning club in this city are not as bright as some seem to think Those who have subscribed for the stock did well to require a guarantee of stabil ity before paying in their money RUSH FOR THEM- e Large Salo of Seats For Enters tainment St Pat

Green Street LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY FEBRUARY 23 1901 WHERE IS DE WET That is the query that is worry ing Gen Kitchener at Pretoria the British commanders in all of South Africa and the War Office in London When he recently entered Cape Colony with a large orce it now develops that Kitch ner arranged a trap to catch the ily Boer and either annihilate or pture his entire force Several rge bodies of cavalry under Gen fox were sent north from Cape wn Gen Kitchener with ace left Pretoria for the south- d a select body of 2500 under en PoleCarew left Bloemfonteiu o cut off any retreat to the north west De Wet continued south ward apparently unaware of these threatening moves and approached near enough to Cape Town to almost cause a panic He had eluded Knox who cautiously retraced his march to entrap the I Boers but they escaped to the northeast without Knoxs forces getting more than a glimpse of them and never going anywhere near Kitchener and his trap Kitch ener after learning that De Wet f had slipped the net gave instructions to Knox for further action and returned to Pretoria two weeks Y lago Up to the latest date he has not yet heard anything from Pole Carews 2500 who were to pre 11- r vent De Wet from rejoining Botha r in the Transvaal The delay is causing grave fears that the British in arranging a trap to catch De Wet really fed into a BothaD Wet trap tticrJsew r hasbeen caught between the forces of Botha on the north and De Wet on the south and either annihilated or capturedf I HOW THE YANKEE GETS IT s Despite the effusive flattery of 4 English officials toward the Ameri I J cans the English merchants and manufacturers are jealous worried and angry at the blarsted Yankee i for his impertinent intrusion in their I trade and markets and urging that if1 steps be taken to exclude Yankee f j products from all British ports that the British markets be preserved for British products and above all i that only British bidsbe considered for public work that unless this is done the American will monopolize J everything and the British manu factories and merchants will be com I pelted to close up Since they are 1t unable to compete their business is i now depressed orders limited factories running short time or closedt down labor idle and discontented Meetings are held and petitions sent ftq the Ministry who are preparing 1a reply in defense of their alleged discriminationf All this agitation is the result of i successful American competition by which the British bidders were sup planted in the iron steel machin ery coall tin and other trades and is aggravated by the encroachments of the Americans in all other Ihcanches of trade Of course this not only deprives the British mer Chants of trade British railways a1 and ships of transportation but I British labor of employment and the effect is already seriously felt throughout Great Britain while the L American merchants railways fac toriewand labor are overworked andi have orders and contracts far ahead of ttheir capacity requiring in many I instances Additional buildings mr chiuery facilities and workmen- ItI- s is this contrast and the per urteat push of the American that excite tie envy and ire of the Eng Bath tradesmen against the Yankee who urge the Gbveroment to aid iia shutting him out of their markets The move will hardly succeed how ever for the American gets the trade on three points of superiority First though he pays far the high est wages to his work II en his prices are the lowest his work is the best and latest improved and finally he furnishes it complete in the least time All these count with the buyer in any market even against favoritism and prejudice and in all these the American leads the world and naturally is getting into the markets ahead of others England most of all feels the com petition and is already suffering therefrom as Americans supplant British trade in foreign countries in the British colonies and right in England In public work of cor porations in colonies the contracts must be approved by the British Minister for Colonies and it is to this department the most earnest pleas and protests are made against the Americans who have already obtained several large contracts and are reaching for more The Min istry however seems to see no way out of the dilemma to relieve their fellow countrymen but feel con strained to defend their action in awarding contracts to Americans in preference to British bidders Citing the contract for the Uganda Africa railroad bridges awarded to the American Bridge Company they sayICThree British and three American companies tendered bids for these contracts The British bidders refused to fix any time limit S mSletiop f theeontra tst or quote any price per ton for bridges erected The Thomas Iron Works American offered to deliver ma terials called for F O B within sixty weeks the shortest time speci fied for similar service by any Brit ish bidders The American Bridge Company bound itself not only to furnish materials on shipboard but to erect the bridges within forty five weeks The majority of British firms wanted more than 100 weeks merely to place the materials on the vessel The Americans agreed to lay down the bridges unerected in any British port for 50 while the Britishers wanted from 6325 to 9733 per ton Delaying them down in London Middlesborough The Mersey or Glasgow And this recalls the stormy pro tests of all England against this contract the denunciation of the Colonial Office the gleeful O pre diction that the Yankee who had been required to give heavy bond would fail to complete the work on time and would certainly lose money at the price anyhow The Yankee however had the work completed several days ahead of time and must have been satisfied with financial results as the same corporation and others are seeking more British contracts of the same kindhence the woe and conster nation of the British manufacturers none of whom can furnish the work at the price or within the time agreed and guaranteed by the American bidders The British consols recently is sued to provide additional funds for the South African war are down to 98 in London and the Ministry is greatly disappointed in the prospect as the decline to below par not only indicates a lack of patriotism at home but will dis courage capitalists in other coun tries to invest in British Govern ment securities The Providence Visitor asks what has become of the movement in favor of a federation of Catholic soctetie and declares t a good stiff spell of persecution is

ad vantages of its own Most of us are in love fairly often and all of us are angry at times This is where the Celtic tongue comes in for it lias always been noted as the best language in the world to curse in and make lovein You can call your sweetheart a darling in eleven different Celtic ways and each of them will be nicer than the last And if you want to tell your rival to go to the devil you may draw a vivid picture of his latter end in a single Irish oath which expresses the fol lowing wlsbiMaythe devil at the last sit upon your breastbone barking for your soul The cry of the morning be upon you doeMiot ound very formid able until you fide told that it contains a desire to hear your relatives keening en masse about your bed you having been found deadwithout warningi when they came

some of the new bodices with a lace chemisette fitting in the V space at the neckShirt waists of Paisley silk squares with a plain border add variety to the list of new models for spring wear Three squares are required for one waist and the plain border is the fur collar cuffs and front finish Many of the summer fabrics have yet to come but panne cloth is one of the novelties promised later It is almost assort and pliable as crepe de chine and is very similar in gloss to the material from which it takes its name The sleeves and the bolero are the points under discussion just at the moment and there are all sorts of con flicting rumors about the former which hove us quite in doubt as to what may be expected in our summer gowns A pretty finish for any blouse bodice of soft material made with a yoke is three deep tucks the upper one edging the yoke all around For a very slender woman who wants to appear larger than she really is this is a good model The new sewing silk grenadines are shown in lovely designs all in black and there are all grades kinds colors and prices in the other grenadines It is very evident already that batiste is to be one of the favorite materials for summer gowns and beautiful embroidered varie ties are now in the market- A very attractive spring costume in cloth shows an elaborate trimming of black braid an inner jacket front of red velvet and a vest of white panne embroid ered in red black and silver Another cloth costume in dark blue with bolero worn over a lace blouse shows a novel arrangement of stitched bands of velvet in a darker shade of blue A novel costume in cloth shows the widedraped belt of silka short bolero with lace yoke tucked silk frill around the edge and lace sash also finished with a silk band covered with stitching around the edge This work of attaching the sash to the bolero is one of the novel features which only the very slender woman can afford to adopt THEATRICALS Merriment of the highest order of excellence will

Catholic Union Will Meet Wltli Mnckln Council Thurs day Night Extracts From Bishop McFniilf Letter on ImmrtnntII Policy of Organization Should Bo Substituted For That of Silence SUGGESTIONS MADE BY GEN GRANT The Catholic Union will meet Thurs day night in regular monthly session and all delegates who can should attend This will be the last meeting with Mackin Council The following extracts from Bishop McFauls letter will throw much light on the movement Up to the present the public attention has been occupied with the exposition of grievances Their remedy has been re ferred to but not presented in any definite plan It is surely not necessary to accentuate the need organization for the purpose of executing any plan se lected Nevertheless it may not be out of place to touch upon the subject While bigotry is not by any means dead in this country most of us will agree with James E Wright who in Donahoes Magazine expresses the opinion that the careful exclusion of Catholics from any of the Commissions has not been insti gated by bigotry i hut is a carefully con sidered move in the political gameunder- the instruction of astute advisers Had there been appointed even one prominent representative American Catholic on each of the Commissions to the Catholic peo pIes of the new possessions the reports submitted would quite likely have been different and probably would have led to considerable public discussion upon the subjects of education of marriage and of the various complex questions arising from the abrupt severance of Church and State All danger of this was avoided by the selection of exclusively nonCatholic Commissioners For a similar reason Protestant Superintendents of schools have also been appointed for each of the new territories If American Catholics were chagrined at their ostracism anti Catholic sentiment was profoundly elated In a word taking all the circumstances of the situation into account the course followedwas doubtless considered carefully and it seems to have been a shrewd one from the viewpoint of the mere poll tician whose chief object is an election In other words during the Presidential or other campaign it is quite safe to ignore Catholics Aria whom have trato blame but ourselves It has theu come to this that politicians looking over the field and weighing the factors on which success will necessarily depend do not find that the interests of Catholics as American citizens must be taken into consideration What a sad commentary upon the policy of silence to which wOe have been so long and so tenaciously devoted I In my opinion organization should be substituted for this policy of silence For years we have been trifled with and deprived of our rights often for no other reason than that we are Catholics and it is high time to devise and to apply a rem edy A sad experience has convinced usI that individual effort is useless except in very rare instances Even when those eminent in religious or secular affairsI have sought redress they have securedI very little if any precisely because they were supported by no tangible organizedI body which commanded attention andI urged just concessions As regards freedom of conscience inI public institutions Catholics are better off perhaps in New Jersey than in many other States of the Union j yet I have been placed in a similar humiliating po sition when seeking due representation on the boards of management of public institutions so that the full religious rights of the Catholic inmates might be obtained exercised and protected Thrice is he armed who hath his quarrel just I found had but a very remote application The authorities greeted me with exuberant courtesy but my requests for the enjoyment of un doubted rights were often futile and probably were not conceded serious at tention The rights of citizenship do not so strongly appeal to the reigning politi clan as his own interests and they are dependent upon the political party which he has espoused At the present time there are not a few in political life who are concerned solely with whatever will1 either advance or prove an obstacle to their political ambitions It was not thought wise when giving publicity to our grievances to anticipate public opinion among Catholics by offer ing at the same time a definite 7 Ian or remedy Therefore in my letters addresses to societies composed of Catho lies even organization was referred to only in a tentative way Itwas suggested that if societies composed of Catholics retain lug their identity and pursuing their own alms independently of one another touched at certain points the resulting bond of union would enable them to exert concerted influence possessing value whenever and wherever bigots attempted the invasion of our rightsI care was taken to state clearly that no I movement purposing to advance Catho lies as Catholics topolitical office would be serviceable In the United political office can not be claimed by adherents as such of any form of religion Nevertheless an American citizen should inever be discriminated against simply be cause he is a Catholic or because he lisa aided Catholics whB there was question ot their constitutional rights Moreover ifi was emphatically announced that no IpSttlM Over EnelUh Woolen titus Store One floor Vet of the Dig Store IDEAL DENTISTRY at reasonable prices at the MammothII

organization directed against any politi cal party merely as a party could be regarded with favor that it was not contemplated I to interfere with party affilia 1 tions Catholics in their political mid civilrelations must be guided and con strolled of course by the laws of morality they can not admit that there is one code of ethics one interpretation f of the ten commawlmeiits I for the individual and another for the 1I nation i The words of the Savior arc as true today as when He uttered them nine teen centuries ago Render therefore Ito caesar the things that are Caesars and to God the things that are Godsr The ballot rnftst be cast in the light of moral principles and conscientiously Adherence to these principles however will not forbid us to oppose ignorant presumptuous bigotry nor to prevent its I followers from entering political life in America t The object desired is evidentenough i although we may not so clearly perceive I the means leading up to its attainment 1 We may learn a lesson from our Protest ant fellowcitizens They stand up courageously r in defense of their rights If I the National Administration the State Legislatures or local boards attempt to interfere with the smallest claim of thejj sects their protests are Heard in clarion tones throughout the length and breadth of the land and delegation after delega tion of their representative1 laymen be seige the halls of legislation Asa rule they have been victorious Very few politician zcare towithstarl determined public opposition The advice given by Gen Grant when President may serve as an illustration These people get to gether call meetings get t up petitions and send deputies down here and thus theyoften secure their object Now that is what you Catholics should do Get together make out a statement of your case and back it with as much force as you can muster This is goodadvice it is brief and right to the point It is likewise in perfect harmony with our form of government The citizen is act ing strictly within the rights of citizen ship when he resorts to such measures to obtain or defend his rights Indeed he may be justly accused o neglect if he does not exercise this prerogative when the occasion demandsII This is the goal to be reached in what manner can we best advance toward it The federation of all societies composed of Catholics has been debated for several years and certain leaders among the laity belonging to the principal organizations have even taken steps toward its consummation by calling meetings and by outlining constitutions This movement has not been primarily inaugurated for the redress of grievances there are many other reasons given why such a union is desirable Through federation we would have at hand a body of men trained by experience in the management of organil zations many of whom are anxious and ready to employ their knowledge for the purpose suggested It is alleged that the difficulties and dangers connected with societies would be multiplied in a general organization If we are to be discouraged by obstacles which after all are not insurmountable then we have departed far from the spirit of our heroic ancestors who sacrificed life itself rather than sur render either religious or civlirights But why should we fear American Catho lies are worthy of their forefathers Point the way let legitimate constitu tional prudent means be selected and they will give most cheerful support No one can deny that the American Catholic possesses the courage of his convictions Settlers and HomeSeekers
