Celebrated Anniversary of St Patrick Crowd Churches in the Morn lug and Macauloy8 at Night Largo Audience Delighted With Splendid Programme Presented HIBERNIANS DESERVE MUCH PRAISE Not for many years past has the anni versary of St Patrick been so generally observed in Louisville as last Sunday The morning dawned bright and clear on ideal spring day Nearly every one wore either the Hibernian souvenir but ton of St Patrick a shamrock or green ribbonThe services at the different Catholic churches were elaborate and at man special musical programmes were ren dered and eloquent sermons preached the Cathedral St Patricks St Louis Bertrands St Michaels St Brigids and St Mary Magdalens taking the lead The attendance at all the churches was unusually large The Ancient Order of Hibernians who never neglect the memory of the saint whom the sons and daughters of Ireland throughout the world delight to honor celebrated the day in a most praiseworthy manner Their first act was to assemble at St Patricks church and headed by County President Keenan several hundred received holy communion in a body at the first mass which was celebrated by Rev Patrick Kelleher They were a fine body of men and presented a splendid appearance as they entered Mlle church of their patron saint Monsignor Gambon delivered the sermon which was pro nounced one of the most eloquent and effective ever preached by him on a similar occasion He called attention to the great work done by St Patrick for the whole world and urged all to so con duct themselves that he might rejoice 4jjjiq er his b n lclionspnthm The Hiberians came from all parts of the city and were very much gratified with the sermon and the reception they re ceived from the members of the congre gation who had reserved seats for them As was predicted the celebration at Macauleys under the auspices of the County Board of Directors was a gratifying success The theater was thronged with a brilliant assemblage embracing the best people from all parts of the city several distinguished and popular clergy men occupying seats in the boxes from which were suspended the stars and stripes and the flag of Ireland Seldom has such an elaborate programme been presented here each number of which was artistically rendered When the curtain rose every seat in the house was occupied and upon the stage surrounding County President Kee nail and Frank G Cunningham whose address is given elsewhere were seated Messrs Martin Cusick Owen Keiran Joe Taylor Tim Sullivan George Butler Pat Sulllvauv James Dugan Phil Cavanaugh Harry Brady Jerry Hallahan John Swift Thomas Hannon James Coleman Mike Tynan Mike Monohan John Barrett John A Murphy John Hennessy James Barry Joe McGinn John Cavanaugh and the editor of the Kentucky Irish American who were greeted with enthus iastic applause The programme which followed Mr Cunninghams address was a varied anti pleasing one and its arrangement and execution reflects great credit upon the County Board of Directors and all who took part The performance was de clared by many to surpass any ever given by amateurs in this city Where all did so well it would be folly to attempt to particularize though the ladies and gen tlemen are deserving of more extended notice than our columns will permit First came the Irish jig by Miss Lida Meagher and John Tracy who astonished everybody with their graceful movements and the variety of steps danced Miss Ida Seuf who is petite and pretty captured the audience with het singing the Duchess of Central Park and responded with a comic song that brought down the house The solos of Misses Josephine Hoertz and Bee Mullarky were moet artistically rendered and each re ceived a whirlwind of applause Miss Hoertz first sang Asthore and re sponded to the hearty encore with Dream Miss Mullarkey sang Happy Days and the honors were equally dividedIpride of the vast audience that heard him slug Sunday night Three times was he compelled to respond to enthusiastic en cores Never was the same songs better sung his rendition of the Emigrants Lament touching every heart Michael McGuires recitation was all that hit friends anticipated and showed a the result of excellent training When he unfurled the green flog of grin at the close the wjthiwlasm was unbounded and the applause did not cease uatil he respondedThe till

appearance in an ancient silk hat and Irish Jubilee so convulsed all with laughter that it was with difficulty he completed the sidesplitting song The most novel feature of the evening was the friendly cake walk between Murt Gallagher and Miss Mamie Cain and Mal Shaughnessy and Miss Lida JAMES B BROWN Popular Democrat Who Will Be Nom mated for Tax Receiver Ucagher the two first named being black face aud the others in full dress John Tracy officiated as leader and many regretted that he was not in the contest Both couples were original and their friends were delighted with their graceful performance which was generously applaudedMiss Rogers and Tommy Keenan both captured the audience the former by her character song anti the latter with the Wild Irish Rose Each was com pelled to respond to hearty encores These little people are excellent singers and give promise of attaining more than local reputation The entertainment was brought to a close by Willie Corrigan Tommy Clines Miss June Imes Arthur Fahey and Henry Silliman who presented very amusing sketch Miss Imes and Corrigau and Clines took the principal parts and kept the house convulsed with laughter They were inimitable and although the hour was late the audience remained with them till the end The Hibernian celebration of the first St Patricks day of the new century will be long remembered and all praise should be given CountywPresiden t Keck- uan Tomas DolauWtiliam Meehan John Cavanaugh John Hennessy John Mulloy and Jerry Hallahan who worked so earnestly for its success Many ex pressions of thanks have been tendered them for the pleasant evening furnished The music was furnished by Scallys Orchestra which played many popular Irish and American airs Miss Mary Zoll presided at the piano and won additional laurels as an accompanist I ENTHUSIASTS IrishAmerican Society Will Introduce Several New Features One of the most largely attended and enthusiastic meetings the IrishAmerican Society has had in recent times was held at their ball on last Thursday evening Every officer was present and responded to roll call Three new members were initiated viz Messrs Carroll Danaher and Heffernan all being wellknown IrishAmericans and men who will prove of great assistance in the future upbuild ing of the society The Committee on Emmet Day Celebration made a supple mentary report further increasing the profits of that entertainment and leaving the society in a very flourishing financial condition with all debts paid The Com mittee on Special Features of Initiation also made its report and all agreed that when these new features are put into operation they will be worth while going miles to see Interesting talks were made on the good of the order by Messrs Keenan Russell Francis Claire Nevin Flynn and others which were well and enthusiastically received Taken as a whole it was one of the most pleasant and profitable meetings the IrishAmer ican Society has ever held WILLIAM

when he was only partially convalescent from pneumonia Now he is suffering from a dangerous lung trouble us well as from the nervous exhaustion consequent on his great efforts at the general election

On gajf s aU they are very effective rt LAMP OF EUROPE Such Was Ireland in the Early Centuries of the Christian Era Remains of the Old Pagan Tem ples at Rome stud Armagh Contrasted Father Rocks Observations on Ills Recent Visit to Rome and St Peters BEAUTIFUL CUSTOM THAT PREVAILS Rev Father Rock delivered an able and interesting discourse at the Cathe dral last Sunday night The edifice was crowded to the doors and as many of our readers were unable to attend they will appreciate the following excerpts therefromThough we are told by some that St Patrick fixed Ids See at Armagh by Divine command iti8 not an article of faith and it is not historically proven The fact is historically proven that he actually did fix his See there although lIe bad intended to build his See in a different part of the country in a beauti ful valley We have reason to believe that Armagh was chosen as the center of Irelands faith by Divine interposition as we know that Rome is the See selected by God as the center of Christendom- As you see in Rome remnants of old pagan temples of the old Rome so you will at Armagh the remains of places where the pagan priests offered up the sacrifice to the heathen god and upon that very hill is the place where Patrick built his church which was taken away from us Around that first church grew the abbey and there at one time 7000 students drank in science and knelt at the feet of professors in the University of Armagh How many times have I tried in imagination to see the old monks and young pupils assembled here to see the German and the Englishman the Italian and the Frenchman seeking wisdom from the lips of Irish teachers This Western isle was called the Lamp of Europe- wUJqligUtofCluistiattity ukhe fifth sixth seventh eighth and ninth cen turies when the Huns and the Goths and the Vandals swept down over Gaul and Italy We are told by a French writer that it seemed as though the lamp of science and faith had taken up its winter quarters in the Emerald Isle In Rome what strikes you forcibly is the multitude of monasteries As I passed up and down there came back through memorys hall the stories I had read and had been told from boyhood up of how Ireland was once one vast mon astic institution a monastery here and one there upon the hilltop or in the amid lug valley and it brought into juxta position these two Rome and Armagh Italy and Ireland- If we with our limited notions had lived in Ireland in the fifth sixth seventh eighth and ninth centuries we would see so many monasteries and churches that we would ask Where are the people to fill them So it is in Rome today If you merely look for the people to fill the churches there are too many of them But with those people they conceived that it was not simply that they should have a place to sit and kneel that they should erect churches They were animated with a spirit of Catholicity that prompted them to build churches and monasteries to God in gratitude to him for his favors They built them to be in some degree worthy of a God of infinite grandeur and power It is not for man to build these churches It is for God and nothing is sufficiently grand or magnificent for the glory of God to enter and abide there God of course may come into the thatched cot tage as well as into the magnificent cathedral that lifts its spire to heaven yet that is no reason why we should limit our gratitude and build only little churches and run up a few brick walls and construct it only for ourselves You will find that in Rome the churches have not their interior walls daubed as ours as a pretense for frescoing No there you will understand what fresco means It is a lost art nowadays apparently in our churches and has been cut off appar rently as unnecessary Perhaps in some ont of theway corner wedged in between a wine shop and a vegetable shop you will discover a mag nificent little chapel adorned with price less paintings or sculptured work It was built by some guild societyand there is oue of Our Lady of Loretto and others built by societies so the memo bers can come there and pray for each other Do our labor unions and our societies do anything like that Do they spend their money building temples in honor of the living God As it was in Italyand Rome so it was in Ireland As I passed by a beautiful building large and imposing in Rome I said to one of the pastors of a church there There is where I spent my days as a novice In that building there were thirtyfour soldiers in their shirtsleeves playing cards That lis what a pretended Utechurchchurches and

Celtic Blood in the Early Settlement of Louisville Jut Kentucky Tribute to Their Memory From time Pen of Edward Fitzpatrick Irishmen Who Assisted Gen George Rogers Clark at Yluccnncs MOST NOTABLE HISTORICAL SKETCH Men of Irish Blood Who Have Figured In Kentucky History Some St Pat ricks Day Reminders was the title of an article which appeared in the Sunday CourierJournal It was the most inter esting historical sketch that has ever ap peared in a Kentucky newspaper on that subject White Kentuckians are proverb ial for their fairness no one of their his torians has ever mentioned time part Irishmen have taken in the development of t is Commonwealth for its betterment It remained for Mr Edward Fitzpatrick of time staff of the Times to call attention to this oversight in a most pleasing and entertaining way as he did in this article which indicates wide reading on the sub ject Mr Fitzpatrick is the Vice Presi dent for Kentucky of the AmericanIrish Historical Society and he has devoted much time to this subject which is more a labor of love with him than the ex pectation of pecuniary reward Every Irishman should read this article which is given the place of honor on the first page of the CourierJournal- At the outset it is made plain that the Irish influence in the early settlement of this State was not due to the socalled ScotchIrish influence which is a myth of recent invention The Kentucky Irish American would like to reproduce the whole article which is well worth the space but circumstances do not permit of this After referring to the fact that William Preston born in the County Dnnegaliin 1729 was the first Surveyor of Fh castle county Va which now 1ii a Ie sltateKen k shows that Simon Kenton the pioneer who came with Boone in 1775 was also of Irish parentage The illustrious Breck inridge family which has furnished the nation with one Vice President and several orators statesmen soldiers and churchmen is also Irish settling in Virginia in 17CO and afterward emigrating to Kentucky The later Prestons were also distinguished locally William Pres ton being a Congressman from Louisville and a Confederate General Preston street is named after him as Ormsby avenue is named after Col Stephen Ormsby whose father was born in Ire land and came to Jefferson county after the revolution of 1779 It would require columns of space to refer to all of the in teresting incidents related by Mr Fitzpatrick but he deserves particular credit for looking up the names of the Irish soldiers who were with Gen George Rogers Clark in his march from this place to Vincennes in 1779 assisting in the reduction of the British post at that point and forever wresting from British influence the great Northwest territory These names had never been published iu a newspaper until Mr Fitzpatrick hunted them up in the old records here and in Jeffersonville and gave them to the world These men were heroes as much as those at Bunker Hill Of these Mr Fitzpatrick writes Although Clarks command was not over 150 men the following were among the officers and men of Irish birth or descent who followed that intrepid leader Lieut Col John Montgomery

Macauleys Theater Sunday night to celebrate the anniversary of St Patrick with the Ancient Order of Hiber nians The orator of the occasion was Frank G Cunningham formerly of this city but now of St Louis Ills speech was a masterly effort and a most pleasing surprise for his many Louisville admir ers Upon the stage were many promi nent members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians who heartily congratulated him upon his brilliant achievement County President Thomas Keenan who was elated over the success of the celebration in a short but happy speech in troduced Mr Cunnington to the audi ence which gave him a genuine Irish welcome After expressing his appre ciation and pleasure of again being with his Louisville friends he spoke as fol lowsMr Chairman members of the com mittee ladies and gentlemenI am in deed grateful for the honor conferred upon me I appreciate most sincerely the presence of such a magnificent audience I join heartily in the general en thusiasm of the day and give my humble efforts freely to swell the plaint and shout of Irish jubilation and trust that tonight it will be heard the world over and that it will ascend to heaven a prayer as it were for the redress of the wrongs of Erin and for a retribution of her long suffering The speaker then- tcferredltottketcelebratiea a tago anhcileljghto t again assembling1 to do honor to St Patrick one of the most glorious saints in the ever illustrious history of our church Is it not an inspiring sight indeed torsee assembled here this evening so rep resentative a body of our people to showrour faith and belief in the principles preached by St Patrick many cen turies ago and our undying devotion to the land of our forefathers AU over this glorious republic this evening aye in the most remote regions of neighboring lands are gathered together bodies of Irishmen celebrating in various forms customs and manners the yearly anniversary of our patriot saint Throughout the length and breadth of this land this evening Irishmen are felic itating on the virtues of St Patrick praising his works and asking the inter cession of his prayers for the accom pllshment of more aud greater good Aye wherever the Celtic heart palpi tates or wherever the Celtic tongue vibrates as Tom Moore so beautifully says there tonight whether in the nag nificent temple the great auditorium the consecrated church or in the humble schoolhouse on the country roadside or in the thatched cottage of the peasant are being sung the praises of St Patrick of Ireland and of Irishmen And fel lowcitizens from this grand and univer sal outburst of Irish enthusiasm of united expression of Irish patriotism can we not readily find the response to the sub ject of my discourse this evening And I am sure you will agree with me when I assert that Irelands destiny depends etu tirely and unmistakably upon Irelands unity There is not a day nor an hour in a day that from some heart and hearts the prayer does not arise to heaven that Irishmen the world over will become united in their efforts to perform and accomplish something for the benefit of Erin and may we not tonight in the midst of our exuberance pccasioued by bringing to mind the glorious history of our Islemay we not I say if we have not already done so resolve and deter termine positively to assist heart and hand in this universal move for thla uni a

humble but sincere and honest feeling of my halt and while many will attribute the remark that I am about to make to the enthueUm of outb too great an ambition to a poor knowledge of Irelands

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SAIN PATRICK Our readers will we believe con cede this issue really to be as much of a St Patricks day number as was our last As a matter of fact it presents a complete summary of the day in Louisville and vicinity and this circumstance induces us to venture an humble summary of our own with regard to the mission o the Apostle of Ireland Since the invention of printing thousands of columns have beet written of Irelands patron saint t Hundreds of books moreover hay been written of him and on each t recurring March 17 thousands of orators scattered around the habit able globe have lifted up their voices in praise of him and of his work It would now appear that lifter all this little new yet remains F unsaidAnd still there is a significant in the career of our saint that very curiously has escaped the attention of editor poet biographer and ora tor So far as we are able to recall it has never been noted how singularly the life of the saint has typified the national existence of the people he converted If we accept the t statements of ethnologists the Kel tic race is instinctively aristocratic If we credit the statements of St Patricks biographers the saint him self was of aristocratic birth H was captured and made a slave dur 0 lug one of the expeditions of Niall of the Nine Hostages Ireland her self was captured and enslaved dur ing the expedition of the Norman Henry II Is not this a remark able parallellYet the closer we examine the parallel the more striking it be r0comes During life St Patrick believed his captivity due to some sin he had committed in youth Who will undertake to say that Irelands long captivity has not been r due to sins committed by her people in the dead ages God purifies through agony May we not thus interpret the travail and torture the fire the famine the slaughter of the last seven hundred years Yet mark still another resemblance Patrick set at liberty returned and liberated a nation from the darkness of paganism Catholic Ireland has preached the gospel of Christ around the confines of earth Before the coming of the Normans she gave culture and Christianity alike to the Saxon English as venerable r Bede assures us to France Alciun and Duns Scotus to Germany the greatest saints that country has produced Today men and women with Irish blood in their veins are bringing Catholic truth to the nations sitting in darkness St Patricks mission to Ireland was not in vain The mission which today his children are bearing around the world is surely not in vain It is thus the career of the saint is a type of the people he brought to Christ The parallel holding good so far may we not confidently expect a further fulfillment of the type or r late or soon as God in his wisdom may decree Some day we feel the slavery under Milcho will come to an end Of old the Milch tthat Patrick knew would not be con verted his son however embraced the faith and died an holy Bishop Already in Newman Manning Coventry Patmore Arnold Wards the Marshall and a thousand more we see the sons of the English mas ter turning toward the faith of the humble slave Perhaps fin this way r the liCltfinally may dawnper thaps in some way now unrevealed yet dawn it will la some hourto 0 morrowfar hencewe feel we know The God that uplifted the slave and made him a great same an holy apostle is a God of justice Meanwhile here in America over there in England throughout Ireland amid the bleak crag of Scotland across the line in Canada under Australias great gold stars on the bloodstained plain of South Africawherever the II sea divided Gael exists the Irish race can best hasten the day of uplift by making itself respect able and respected among the wrangling nationalities that dwell upon the globe If indeed the blood of kings flows in Irish veins as in the veins of no other people let us be true to that gentilit which ought to accompany noble descent Here in America we hay a great work to donaught othe than to accomplish the will of God and so remembering each man of Irish birth or lineage ought to fit himself for the mission entrusted to his race To do this noble live must be led loftiest Christian ideals cherished and perfect uprightness maintained in all our relations to men We boast of Ire lands Apostle to the nations let us show to the world through our actions that his preaching was not- in vain ENGLAND EXPOSED England loudly protested to the powers that Russia was violating theinternational agreement ii China by occupying parts of Man churia with the intention of permanently holding that territory With her protest she reasserted her pur pose not to seek any territory or concessions in Chine But her hypocrisy was exposed as well as the falsity of her charge agains Russia by an incident last week Previous to the Boxer outbreak in China concessions for building rail roads were sought by several of th European Governments and aU seemed to havCobta ned what they wanted except En ll1nd who wantec the railroad concession that Russia obtainedThe troubles checked operations but Russia recently resumed the work of building the railroad England protesting to the powers against this as a violation of the agreement not to demand or take Chinese territory and professing her purpose to abide by that agreement last week sent a military force to stop the work The Rus sian officer having only a small force withdrew under protest and reported to his superior In the meantime the English put men to work on the railroad right to build which by England had not been granted by China The Russian officers having received reinforce nents drove the English force and workmen from the work Both nilitary forces were on guard awaiting further orders The French ire also building a railroad and since the English move against the Russian road have increased their nilitary guard on the ground For Russia to build a railroad although granted the right to do so by China is according to England a violation of the subsequent inter lational agreement not to acquire Chinese territory as indemnity for Boxer damages but for England by force to seize a right of way and proceed to build a railroad without Chinas consent is not a vIola- tion of the agreement It is true however that England did not c1laity the territory as indemnity he simply tried to annex it The incident attracted worldwide iteration and discussion with no Q little apprehension as to the result should England persist in her bel ligerent attitude for it is beyond question that she will have to desist or fight Hence her frantic protest to all the powers But none of them not even Germany gave the least intimation of interfering in the row The English troops and workmen withdrawing and the Russians holding the disputed ground and resuming their railroad building may settle the dispute though the Russian officials refuse to hold any communication with the British until ample apology isi given for the interference with a Russian concession and insult to the Russian flag which in the melee was torn and trampled in the dust by an English official This last grievance has been reported to St Petersburg and will likely be heard of in London It has simply been once more demonstrated that the lion can not bluff the bear and the opinion is growing that neither can the lion whip the bearat

tingling with a freshness And vim beyond compare The north wind in the tree tops Proclaims the comingdawu And sends the crisp leaves rattling Across the frozen lawn From some adjacent farmyard A watchful chanticleer With raucous joyous crowing Assails the atmosphere Then nearer home a watchdog Awakened from his sleep Gives voice to his resentment In tones prolonged and deep A wagon bound for market Goes creaking down the road- I hear the axles groaning Beneath the heavy load The light grows at my window And on the pane I see Jack Frost has limned a picture Of silvery tracery Now from the servants stairway Slow feet pass down the hall And then a kitchen shutter Clangs out against the wall I love these frosty mornings To note these things and then To draw the bedclothes closer And go to

FIRST PACK in the glorious prerogative that Irelands destiny must be will be and shall be Irelands liberty and independence And in substantiation of my assertion and without any attempt on my part of exag geration but simply stating simple facts in simple words let us tonight reylew for a few moments the past history of our little islerecounting in a brief manner her many days of suffering sympathizing with her in her misfortunes condoling her in her affliction anti glorifying with her in her noble achievements It is fellowcountrymen an acknowledged fact that for two centuries after the death of St Patrick Ireland was renowned throughout Europe for her schools her colleges and her institutions of learning Upon her was bestowed the double crown of being the isle of scholars as well as the isle of saints Prom her monasteries and colleges went forth pious and zealous missionaries educating civilizing and teaching the inhabitants of the many countries through which they passed and to these devout and pious followers of St Patrick modern Europe today with her greater learning and splendid intellectual advancement owes her proud position Does it not indeed seem as though I am speaking as without truth in these days of independence of liberal educa tion and in this land of freedom when I tell you that only a few years back the penal laws of Great Britain were such that Irish history and Irish literature were barred therefrom and yet my friends history bears me out in my state ment when I tell you that from the year 1CCO to the year 1820 Irish historyand Irish literature were barred from the Irish schools and colleges by the fanatical laws of the English Parliament and yet despite this cruel wrong this unjust oppression that wellnigh stifled our national life our love of learning is dom inant and the desire to become intel lectual is an inherent factor of our peo ple Does it not seem as though I am speaking in fable when I tell you that the very birth of the society under whose auspices we are assembled this evening took place at the time of the operation of these severe penal laws in Ireland but again history bears we out when I tell you that while the mother and children were assisting the Soggarth Aroon in the divine sacrifice of the mass in humble hut or cave in the hillside the fathers and sons were standing sentinellike at the country roadside to protect and de fend their dear ones from the sudden advance of the dastardly yeomanry and later after the penal laws were somewhat modified these same sentinels became the founders of the Ancient Order of Hi berniansLet consider the evictionsthat oc curred durinp this trying period Houses burned and pillaged towns and dwellings reduced to ashes libraries and schools destroyed babes snatched from their uiothersbrcasls daughters given toa fate worse than death fathers and sons slain without mercy and why Why this outrage this wholesale persecution of the innocent Why because they would not deny the faith that St Patrick taught them and acknowledge the subjection of themselves and their country to the powerful but brutal invader AhlI fellow countrymen you tell we that these years of fortitude of patience of extra ordinary devotion to God and country ever are not to be rewarded sooner or later and I say now the execution of jrstice may be delayed but it will never die truth honor and religion and up righteousness form an armor more power ful than the legions of modern armies can penetrate Let us think a moment on the glories of Brian Boru of Grattan Fitzgerald of Sarsfield Father Murphy and many others who lived fought and died that Erin may be free And now allow me to indulge in sentiment Let us forget as it were our surroundings let us in imagination cross the seas and entering upon our little isle find there a grave lowly and humble beaten by the storms of many winters with grass and twigs growing unkept about it No mon ument is there to tell who it is that sleeps to all appearance unknown uncaredfor and here my countrymen lies the re mains of him who loved his country our country who led fights who fought her battles and in fine for the great love of his country showed the world how to die Yes my friends there lie the remains of Robert Emmet but in history we find an epitaph more lasting more prominent than any that human genius can devise Here we find his last memorable words utteredwhile in the very face of death for his beloved Ireland and may wenot also accept it as our duty this evening to resolve and to determine that Erin shall be free and that Emmets grave be marked in accordance with his dying wishes All the countries of the world commemorate the deeds of Irishmen We have read of the charge at Fontenoy we have been told that a King of France when leading his legions into battle gave orders that his brave Irish be near him and need we go further than the glorious history of our own countryour ever free America From the time that the first gun was fired at Lexington down throughout all the glorious history to the present day the IrishAmerican citizens and the IrishAmerican statesmen have done their duty to help place our land in the grand position which she justly occupies today as being the greatest country on the face of therartbAb it is only too true that we have fought well honorably and success fully in the battles of all the world except our own Mr Cunninghams peroration was dra matic and brilliant His references to the deeds of the Irish in the early history of this country elicited much enthusiasm He imparted to his bearers a message from Miss Maud Gonne and Major John McBride who were then in St Louis urging Irishmen the world over to stand shoulder to shoulder heart to heart their united effort

assembled one day And even the speechless had something- to say The blind and the deaf and the sore and the lame United were there for the good of the game All bickring forgotten all feuds laid aside Each artist was oathbound to ever abide The code of the craft as adopted that day Albeit each determined to have his ownI way Arid that brought about the most tragic row- Recorded in history from then until now The blind man stood up and addressing- the Chair Said I see in the press some beggars declare That blindness is not a sufficient excuse For begging but still pon my word I refuse To believe that men would the blind criticise Unless they were deaf Why Id bet my two eyes And then on the instant the deaf man arose Quoth he Mr Chairman Ive heard the verbose Remarks of the blind man with sorrow and pailj For fear I mistake them I ask him again I move Mr Chairman the dumb man did shout If they cant agree that we put them both out The blind man and deaf man prepared to resist The SergeantatArms who was shaking his fist Although hed no hands he got hold of them both Prepared to expel them but they being 1011- 1Appealefl to the chair who had never a leg Yet came running quickly and said Friends I beg You remember your oaths and do what is right Dut his peaceful counsel just started a fight Then all of the beggars took part in the war The howling and cursing were heard near and far The man without arms took a bust at the blind Who ducked the blow neatly and came up behind His rival the deaf man and jumped at his back But that worthy heard him and hit him- a whack The Chair grew excited and joined in the muss Twixt stamping and kicking he raised such a fuss The cops heard the racket andt clubbed him like sin Then backed up the wagon and ran them all in PATRICK KINO

grant a special conces sion to applicants by reducing the initia tion fee to fifty cents for all joining before April 15 The result has been simply astonishing seventeen applications being presented at the meeting this week in addition to three members previously proposed The Aquinas Union is not saying much but is doing a great deal of good work on the quiet and the members now have on foot several affairs which promise both a good time to those who attend as well as financial success for the union The dance to be given by the Colum bian Society at the New Athletic Club on the evening of April 17 will doubtless prove a great social event and will be attended by large numbers of the pret tiest girls and most gallant young men in the Dominican parish A minstrel show to be given later in the spring is also well under way and some of the best local talent has been secured though the programme is not yet complete The picnic to be given in July prom ises to be as successful as the last one and will be so arranged that all the youngsters who participated in the games etc last year and were disappointed will have a chance to win more valuable prizes this year Boys who intend to enter the pie eating contest are already training much to the regret of some of their mothers SPLENDID SHOWING The Hibernians of New Albany made a splendid showing at Holy Trinity church I Sunday evening
