Address on a Evnugellne r 1 Visited the Place of Her Birth and Also Stood Alongside Her Grave 1 Delivered Before the Federated Catholic Societies at St Marys Hall STORY OF HER LIFE AND PEOPLE In our last issue reference was made to the scholarly and poetic address on the American Acadians delivered last week at St Marys Hall before the Catholic Union by Dr J W Fowler by special request The impression made by the eloquent speaker on his hearers will be lasting and for the benefit of the many not present we cheerfully print his care fully prepared address in full The Doc tor who was frequently applauded spoke as followsLadies and Gentlemen I have been invited by your distinguished President to address you tonight on the subject of Evangeline and her peoplethe Acadians of America I feel somewhat abashed by the presence of several eminent stu dents of Acadian history who have dis tinguished themselves in the field of letters upon this subject but as I have traversed the ground where Evangeline first saw the sunlight of heaven in the far northern harbor of Grand lre Nova Scotia and have stool on the banks of the languid Teche where the old town of St Alartinsville dreams amid the pro found stillness that lies above the heart of the Eden of Louisiana possibly my discourse may prove of interest even to themIn early part of the eigbthcenth century a large body of French Catholics emigrated from the fair Provicc of Normandy in France and established a col ony on the Atlantic coast at the mouth of the Gasperean river in Nova Scotia They brought with them all the beauti ful Catholic traditions of their native land and built a typical Catholic village with the church surmount by the 7tsid Ffsttft ettles ofitlreny called it Grand Pre No llanguage can discribe it so well as that of Longfellow Solemnly down the street came the parish priest and the children Paused in their play to kiss the hand be extended to bless them Reverend walked he among them and up rose matrons and maidens Hailing his slow approach with words of affectionate welcome Then came the laborers home from the field and serenely the sun sank Down to his rest and twilight prevailed Anon from the belfry Softly the Angelus sounded and over the roofs of the village Columns of pale blue smoke like clouds of incense ascending Rose from a hundred hearths the homes of peace and contentment Thus dwelt togetheriu love these simple Acadian farmers Dwelt in the love of God and of man Alike were they free front Fear that reigns with the tyrant and envy the vice of republics Neither locks bad they to their doors nor bars to their windows But their dwellings were open as day and the hearts of their owners There the richest was poor and the poorest lived in abundance Thus the lives of the Acadian colonists flowed along in harmony with all that was pure and good until the fateful autumn of 1755 when a fleet of English menofwar entered the harbor seized the Acadians and their goods and transported them to distant climes Histori ans agree that the deepest stain ever at tached to the British empire was the deportation of the peaceful Catholic col ony of Acadians in Nova Scotia and scattering them far asunder from the cold lakes of the North to sunny Southern savannas as Longfellow says Dearing a nation with all its house hold gods into exile an exile without example in story In order that one may fully understand the situation at the time it may be well to state that England and Prance were engaged in a deadly frontier struggle for supremacy in the new world The Acad cans were neutral preferring peace to war Braddock had just been defeated at Fort Duquesne and it was therefore easy to stir up the hatred of the New England troopswho were to be the chief agents of the deportationagainst- the Papists of Acadia whose lands they were to possess On the 17th of September 1754 Major Charles Lawrence originally a house painters apprentice was made Governor of Nova Scotia He was a man of violent character and possessed all the faults of one suddenly raised to supreme power for which he was not fit This was this agent selected by the British government arid upon whom it tests the responsibility of the deportation of the Acadians He began by a letter to the Lords of Trade dated August 1 1754 before his formal etallutentaeGovernor- w la which he threw doubt on the neutrality of the Acadian and adding superficially that they possessed the largest and best tracts of land in the province thereby preventing its settlement by English colonistsThe step was to deprive the Aca dians of their arms and ammunition which they unwittingly surrendered at his autocratic demand thus rendering their expulsion possible and enabling the Governor to actively occupy himself in putting the project into execution The expulsion of the Acadians was an act of consummate cruelty and injustice that has no parallel in history Wives were torn from their husbands and mothers too late saw their children left on land extending their arms in wild est entreaties Evangeline Bellefontaine whose real name was Emmeline La biche just seventeen years of age and the pride of the village was affianced to Gabriel Lajcunesse Louis Arceneau the son of Basil the blacksmith Long fellow thus describes Evangeline Fair was she to behold that maiden of seventeen summers Black were her eyes as the berry that grows on the thorn by the wayside Black yet how softly they gleamed be neath the brown shade of her tresses Sweet was her breath as the breath of kine that feed in the meadows When in the harvest beat she bore to the reapers at noontide Flagons of homebrewed ale ahl fair in sooth was the maiden Fairer was she when on Sunday morn while the bell from its turret Sprinkled with holy sonnets the air as the priest with his hysop Sprinkles the congregation and scat ters blessings upon them Down the long street she passed with her chaplet of beads and her missal Wearing her Norman cap and kirtle of bluer and the earrings Brought in the olden time from France and since as an heirlpom Handed down from mother to child through long generations But a celestial brightness a moreethe real beauty Shone on her face and encircled her form when after confession Homeward serenely she walked with Gods benediction upon her When she had passed it seemed like the ceasing of exquisite music She and Gabriel were carried away on separate ships The efforts of Evange line accompanied by Father Fellciau Father Felix Palm her friend and father confessor to find the where abouts of her fiance their wanderings from town to town and through the wil derness to Louisiana is a story that touches the heart as no other ever could It was the latter part of a very cold winter that I visited the laud of the live Oct asn11SPi Zt tftime When I left my northern home the whole face of nature was locked in fetters of ice and snow and as I jour neyed southward indications of verdure grew more perceptible and when I reached the Gulf of Mexico the buds had burst forth and the flowers were abloom with all their glorious beauty and fragrance All the beauties of a perfect morning in that matchless clime ere abroad when I took the boat at New Orleans for the shrine of Evangeline at the old town of St Martinsville on Bayou La Teche From the deck of the steamer as she majestically moved down the bayou a scene of rare beauty was witnessed the bright rays of the sun glinting through tropical foliage and casting shadows of wonderful beauty upon the water the hedge fences of wild roses abloom with pink and white blossom The plantations of rice and sugar that lay upon either side of the bayou and the beautiful residences with their wide varandas which were so close to each other as to appear as the steamer glided along to be a con tinuous village the atmosphere sur charged with the sweet pungent odor of the jasmine and magnolia charmed my senses with inexpressible delight The twilight of this region is very brief and the moon was rising above the mosscovered trees as we approached the quaint old town As the orb of night majestically arose in a faultless sky and gilded the cross of the little Catholic church with a splendor all its own I was filled with mute wonder at beauties felt but neither questioned nor understood and for the moment I imagined that I was in another world it seemed so strange so beautiful so bright The ancient live oak known as Evan gelincs ree1I upon which was fastened a shrine of the Blessed Mother threw its vivid outline upon the surface of the Teche and was perfectly mirrored in its moonlit wafers As I gazed upon the sleeping town which the Acadians of Louisiana have built my thoughts went back to the village of Grand Pre Wey muth Nova Scotia which I had visited years ago and it seemed to me that one was a reproduction of the other From the Acadlaus themselves I learned the true story of Evangeline about whose life and character Longfellow has written so beautifully but strangely enough from the latter part of whose career he has entirely departed leaving untold the most pathetic portion of her unhappy existence The poets version of her life was that when she arrived at the old town in Louisiana where Gabriel and his family had taken refuge that he had gone to the Far West and after seeking him for years without avail she had become a Sister of Mercy and finally found him in old age dying at a Philadelphia alms house This is not true She was never a Sister of Mercy Neither faded nor old was she when her long journey from Grand Pre to St Martinsville ended in a disappointment unspeakably more batter than death BeHeviBg that they were separated for j i e- oy A A Y JOHN R BFLHNZ s Democratic Candidate for Re

present number in Louis iaua is 74000 As the historical story of Napoleans career from the Isle of Corsia where he was born to the Isle of St Helenawhere he closed leis eyes in death is the most

the Sunny South Illhornlnns of Alabama Enthu siastic Over Ills Great Tribute Does Not Doubt That the Cause of Freedom Will Ever Prevail CLASSMATE OF OUR JUDGE TONEY Hon Alex Troy who is noted as one of the most eminent and able members of the Alabama bar and was a classmate and warm friend of Judge Sterling B Toney and the late Alpheus Baker deliv ered an address at the St Patricks day celebration and banquet of the Hibernian societies of Montgomery that burned witheloquence and patriotism The Irish Race in the Sunny South was his subject and so enthusiastic were those who heard him and prompted by the fact that such an able effort should not go unrecorded many of those present joined in a request for the manuscript of the address Copies were received hereby Pat Bannon and Judge Toney and by them given to the Kentucky Irish Amen ican Believing that our readers will all appreciate the lofty sentiments expressedl we therefore publish Mr Troys grand speech in full A land without ruins is a land without memories a land without memories is a landwithout history The triumphs of might are transient they pass and are forgotten The deepest sufferings of right are graven deepest on the chronicle of nations It is a commendable virtue to take pride in the glorious achievements of our ancestors Let the work be noble let the exertion be for the uplifting and freedom of the human race and be it crowned with success or blighted by fail ure the actors will live in history What a rich legacy has been given us of the Irish race in the immortal names of the patriots who lived and died that Ireland might take its place among the nations of the earth The battles that she fought have been battles of freedom and I do not doubt that Ultimatelyl the cause of eeilgm will rev ilr 1 For freedoms battle once egun Bequeathed by bleeding sire to son Though baffled oft is ever won After the rude blast of war had blown in our ears our Southland lay prostrate and desolate It was a land of ruins and a land of memories ruined homes where hall dwelt the Southern gentlemen dispensing hospitality now only a memory To this beautiful coun try to this warm sunshiny clime as fair asThe isles of Geece Where burning Sappho loved and sung Where grew the arts of war and peace Where Delos rose and Phoebus sprung had come the Irish emigrant to cast ills fortune and to exercise that freedom of thought and that liberty of action the cruel laws of England denied him at home Here he could give vent to his love of freedom and hatred of tyranny and thus prior to the Revolution we find him aiding and abetting the cause of the colonies against the unjust claims of England Some of them were present at Charlotte on May 20 1775 and took part in the adoption of the Mecklenberg declaration of independence But before we tell of their heroic conduct and that of their descendants let us pause for a moment and turn to that country in the lap of the ocean set from which they came The land where the ruins are spread And the living tread light on the hearts of the dead Heartless oppression galling tyranny vindictive hate and relentless persecution for centuries on the part of England toward Ireland have caused the voluntary exile of countless thousands of the chil dren of Erin from the homes of their fathers to seek asylums and shelter among other peoples Shut out at home by lawfrom places of honor and denied even t e poor privileges of carving out destiny by study or toil do you marvel that with all his love of country intensi fied the exile flees to other lands to a enjoy that freedom and liberty denied him at home or that every generous country opens its arms to give him web comeNo separate people can claim no one country can appropriate him On the coin trary he rapidly

KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN 326 Weal Oreen Street I LOUISVILLE Ky SATURDAY APRIL 6 19011 EASTER IN THE SOUL This is Passion week Next Sunday is Easter the greatest fes tival of the year The season is one of uplift of birth of growth of regenerationWe grown as the days passed We have grown older cer tainly perhaps we have grown in stature It is possible moreover that we have grown mentally The age is one of broadening muscles of everawakening mental strength It were strange if we did not ad vance with the age Yet have we advanced spiritually It is fa pertinent inquiry In spring the new leaves come the sunlight is warmer clearer new grassblades clothe the sward and little dew drops begin to twinkle in early dawn we do we partake of the great awakening in its fullness With purified souls do we share in the universal rebirth Are holier emotions like gentle dews pervading our being If not we may well question why It will not suffice that we gain in in perish mere physical strength able wealth in aggressive mental ity These things are of the age and evanescent Our souls how ever are inheritors of the future It is well to grow mentally it is imperative that we grow spiritually Spiritual growth in this world is the beginning of the life to come Growth of this kind does not perish with the body It clings to us and widens and broadens through all eternity It is the base of eternal knowledge and whoso gathereth it unto his soul and keepeth it fast shall not perish Therefore if our souls have un rest at Easter it is because we have not purified that which is of God within us because we have chosen rather to advance in things of the world or things of the intellect rather than in things of the soul After its season of rains and snows and purifying frosts the earth stands newwashed at Easter ought man Gods lastmade creature alone dare stand uncleansed before the All seeing Father It is the hour of peace shall we not go to Him repentently and come down from the mount of penitence joying in the gladness of the world RECITING ENGLANDS INFAMY This issue of our journal contains Dr J W Fowlers splendid address on the Catholic Acadians as an nounced last week The article is one which will be read with great attention Mr Longfellows famous poem Evangeline has made these people objects of universal interest and as will be seen Dr Fowler relates the story of the great deportation with exquisite taste and literary skill We submit however that driv ing the Catholic Acadians from their homes was scarcely a new thing with England in 1756 Nearly two centuries before she drove the ancient Irish proprietors from their homes in Leinster and Uster and in 1641 she drove thousands more Uto hell or Connaught out of Munster Most infamous of all she tore wife from husband and daughter from father about that period and sold the same to the Virginia colonists for wives Thirty thousand unhappy women were thus gold and the infamy of the deed will stretch down the centuries while a flame twinkles in hell No Longfellow has told of this piteous thing tlOme time we hope some future poet may arise and do 80IThis aside Dr Fowlers address is notable in that it presents much new matter with regard to the true career of Evangeline and presents it moreover after a manner de lightfully attractive Those who have read Longfellows poem read ily will grant that the truth is not only stranger than fiction but also much sadder Here it may be of interest to state that a number of great men have come out of Catho lic Acadia down in Louisiana while the descendants of those who re turned to Acadia Nova Scotia are today the leaders of Canadian thought and politics A QUESTION FOR DECISION As a simple matter of fact are politicians greater than the people who have temporarily entrusted them with power At the present moment the question is a pertinent one here in Kentucky With naught but kindest inten tion we submit that the attitude as sumed by a number in seeking to give the people primary conven tions instead of primary elections is going to be wofully misunderstood Not only this but if persisted in the result is going to prove su premely disastrous for the candi dates so put before the public And why Simply because the people as a whole desire primary elections instead of conventions They are suspicious of the latter and will defeat candidates so put up Whether right or wrong they have come to regard conventions as mere machines capable of being manipulated by those who invented them It is useless to deny that this suspicion exists It does and it will grow more widespread from day to day This being true were it not sim ple wisdom to allow the people a primary election if such they desire Not only do the men who do the voting desire the adoption of this method but probably a majority of the candidates likewise If a pri mary is not granted we again assert our sincere conviction that those who vote will make some one suffer who perhaps little deserves to do so The masses who do the vot ing believe their wishes should not be ignored A DESERVED DEFEAT It may not be very Christian to exult in the misfortune of another yet unless we gravely mistake Irishmen and particularly Catholic Irishmen the country over will shed few tears because of the defeat of Judge Klbridge Hanecy of Chi cagoin his race for Mayor last Tue day In saying this we do not refer to the political faith of the esteemed Judge That he was a Republican is a matter of small concern to us Quite naturally we are always KladI to see one of our race advance by means of any party provided of course that he win power and dis tinction by right methods Just here precisely is where Judge Hanecy was weighed and found wantingFor it has been plain as day for several weeks that the learned and officedesiring Judge I in reality was born and baptized Patrick Elbridge Hennessy up in the wilds of Minnesota several lus t trums ago The baptismal register of the humble Catholic church up I there showed this to the satisfaction I of every one His own broth ers and sisters yet bear the name t Hennessy Hennessy was his fath 1 ers name His people were all I Henn aeys and all Catholics In I boyhood the future Judge himself was known as Patrick but that J was years ago c The youth was bright and ambi o z w w a I i X X t DR J W FOWLERt His Address on the American Acadians Will Attract Widespread Attention V Vy y M + N + 1XNVX +N N 1 + ++ ++ + + tious He meant to get on in the worldand so departed early from the scenes of his boyhood In due course of time he turned up at Chi cago but lo the change that over took him en route Somewhere along the road the Patrick slipped off his name A little farther and the ancient name of Hennessy was dropped and Hanecy took its place As Elbridge Hanecy then he was prepared to assault Fame if he could not win her otherwise Yet no another thing remained his religion As a Catholic he could not expect to become Presi dent of the United Statespossibly- not even a Congressman from Illi nojs or Mayor of Chicago We should like to believe the Judge had here a little struggle but the result was that his Catholicity went the way of the names Patrick and Hennessy It also got dropped en route When the youth ful hero first swam into public view he was a fullfledged Baptist Well he has his reward For awhile he prospered He became a Judge Lest Tuesday however he stood for Mayor of Chicago against Carter Harrison and while a Republican City Council was elected Judge Hanecy was beat en by 29000 plurality The Irish of Chicago woke up to his lightning change of long ago and shelved him gloriously just as he deserved to be shelved No doubt philologists may now have opportunity to de termine the probable nationality indicated by the Judges aristocratic nameThere is a moral attached to the story and we give it for the ben efit of ambitious young Irishmen everywhere It is this If you are ashamed of the name and race and faith of your ancestors some day you will wake up and find yourself held in contempt by the people you despise and by all others whose respect is worth having as well God watches and sees and will re ward according to your deeds GLADSTONE FORCES ISSUE The unwillingness of the British Government to submit grave question to the people through a disso lution and election of Parliament and the technicalities and subter fuges resorted to for avoiding it even to the withholding or with drawal of questions from Parlia ment lest the result be a disagreement necessitating dissolution and election during the past five years have confirmed the opinion that the Government is not supported by the popular will despite its fre quent claims of a united national approbation On the death of Queen Victoria and accession of King Edward the claim that such a change necessitated the election of a new Parliament was after grave consideration decided in the nega tive and avoided by the Parliament taking the oath of allegiance to the new King That there is a strong and steadily growing opposition to the policy of the Government throughout the Empire has long been manifest to all observers but has been restrained within the bounds of inaction by the desperate and threatening conditions of af fairs The Government though not opposed openly has been sim ply allowed to pursue its policy in the hope that the crisis may be passed or at least become less grave But such hopes have been disappointed the condition of af fairs not only abroad but at home instead

Chinese Irish and taxation questionsMr Gladstones utter ance is at once a rebuke and pro test concluding with a threat of opposition unless the House of Lordsthe Government bulwark yield to a change of policy Of these Mr Gladstone says The war in South Africa will cost not far short of two hundred millions and the settlement seems as far off as ever There are prob lems to be solved in the far East of the first magnitude and the Gov ernment appears destitute of a clear settled policy Already the huge expenditure for the army and navy is going up by leaps and bounds and will force Europe to add to its ruinously large assessments The Irish are more to the front than ever and the Government seems to view it with apathetic Impotence The advocates of the Liberals are not endeavoring to take up the Governments burden until they have exacted conditions that their policywf11not again be stultified by the rejection of their measures by the House of Lords The sensitiveness of the Government is fully illustrated by the prompt and unanimous criticism of Mr Gladstones letter by the Conservative Government press which though emphatic are o guarded in their disapproval and1 the extent of popular opposition to Government policy is clear ly manifested by the ready and out spoken defense of Mr Gladstones position by the opposition press Such immediate and general dis cnssion by the press is a sure in dicator of the public pulse showing widespread discontent the fore runner of open rupture in Ute British field of politics in which the Government must defend its policy to the satisfaction of the people or go down in defeat England is good at excuses andI putting the blame for her failures upon others Every time her wellI laid plans to surround and capture the Boers result when the lines are drawn in showing that the Boe are not and perhaps never were where they supposed them to be the fault being charged to treachery dereliction or incompetency of some official or other cause Just before the opening of peace negotiations and truce Gen French was sent with a large force to surround DudI capture the Boers in Eastern Trans vaal The truce suspended militar operations and when subsequent- Gen French closed in his trap only to find no game it is charged that the Boers violated the truce by escaping through his lines during the suspension of hostilities This is palpably a fabrication since it ff- a is recognized rule of warfare that the violation of a truce summarily terminates it and any act of either party contrary to the terms of a truce is a just ground for immediate renewal of hostilities by the other party Thus had the Boers at tempted to pass the lines of Gen French during the truce they would have been subjected to attac and capture and all Boers even Gen Botha and officials then in th British lines could have seizedan opportunity which Gen Kitchener would not have failed to take every advantage of The fact that such action was not taken by the British and that nothing was said of the violation of the trllceI till after the utter failure of Gen Frenchs operations all prove that the claim is a fake pure and simple to excuse the failure SOCIETY DANCE The Columbian Society will give their annual dance at the New Athletic ClubI on Wednesday evening April 17 The committee in charge are John JCroUy Richard Edelen James Fahey

trimmings A revivall is promised of the oldtime silk mitts for summer wear and especially with the elbow sleeves One style of mitt is applique flowers of lace in the finest net goldsbeads with a star decoration at intervals is one variation of dress trimming which in the two inch width makes n very pretty belt- Imitation jewelled chains and bead chains of all sorts are very muchworn not only by young girls but older women as well and they are either short or long as you choose The uses for pretty wash silks seem to be legion and they are made up into childrens gowns shirt waists neglige costumes of all kinds night gowns and mens pajamas The flare in some of the tailor skirls is produced by opening the seams on either side of the front and at the sides and in serting a plaiting of the material In dressy thin gowns this fullness is some times of lace peThe narrow turnover edges of lace or embroidery are still worn Among the boas there is the short ostrich feather variety in white and pale gray just fit ting the neck and finished with soft full ends of fine lace to the waist The new leather belts are the same straight around bands so long worn but are covered with rows of stitching or combined with velvet showing a narrow line through the center the leather over lapping and being stitched on Bands of silk satin or velvet on a lace ofeed with loops and ends of the velvet rib bowyAs for the lining of the tailor skirt it is foundsy tion skirt Or a veritable lining made fast to the edges all around Some prefer one style and some the other and it is merely a matter of choice as both are used Insertions and motifs of lace are inset in various ways in white and black silk parasols showing a dainty colored lining through the meshes and then there are 1plain silk parasols in various colors with fluffy chiffon ruffles around the edge It is not of much use to venture into the realm of neckwear which consists of boas collars scarfs stocks ruches fichus and berthas of both domestic and Parisian manufacture with any definite idea of giving a clear description of the varied modesCasual hints and glimpses of the spring milliner seem to reveal the fact that In general hats are still to be low and broad And yet other reports assure us that the high crown in the Directoirc style will be one feature suggested by the long coats Skirts for tailor gowns are fashioned in various ways but the model which is said to prevail in Paris is the circular skirt with a circular flounce It fits the hips closely and the fulness in back is confined plaitsf0or one
