tury Its Promise and Significance The Cardinal Declares Religio- nlhEssontial Basis of Civil Society Ii What Is Demanded of Our Rulers Magistrates t and People THE FOUNDATION OF HUMAN SOCIETY rm Among the many able papers printed this year on the new century none excel irthat from the pen of Cardinal Gibbons written for the New York World and which furnishes interesting reading for Catholics and nonCatholics On this first Easter morning of the twentieth centurya century full of V promise for the spread of Christianity it is well to recall the fact that religion is the essential basis of civil society Religion is the bond that uuites man with his Creator I employ the term religion here in its broadest and most comprehensive sense as embodying the existence of cod His infinite power and knowledge Ills providence over us the recognition of a divine law the moral freedom and responsibility of man the distinction be tween good and evil the duty of render ing our homage to God and justice and charity to our neighbor and finally the existence of a future state of rewards and punishmentsI religion is the only solid basis of society If the social edifice rests not on this eternal and immutable foundation it will soon crumble to pieces It would be as vain to attempt to estab lish society without religion as to erect a palace iu the air or to hope to reap a crop from seed scattered on the oceans sur face Religion is to society what cement is to the building it makes all parts com pact and coherent He who destroys religion says Plato overthrows the foundations of human society The social body is composed of individuals who have constantCrelation- swithone an 1tru1td the very lifc and eiatLllcattlrermembers of the community discharge toward one another various and complex dutiesWhat does society require of your frnlers and magistrates What does it re quire of you It demands of your rulers that they dispense justice with an hand It demands of you that evenj loyal to your country zealous in fense faithful in the observance of her laws conscientious in the payment of imposts and taxes for her maintenance and support- It demands of the married couple con jugal fidelity of parents provident vigi lance of children filial love In a word it demands that you render to all men their dues tribute to whom tribute is due custom to whom custom fear to whom fear honor to whom honor and that you render to Caesar the things that are Caesars and to God the things that are Gods How can tbese social virtues be prac ticed without sufficient motives These motives must be strong and powerful because you have passions and selfinter est to overcome They must be universal because they are binding on all members of society They must be permanent because they apply to all times and placesWhat motives religion apart arc forcible enough to compell legislators rulers nnd magistrates to be equitable and impartial in their decisions What guaran tee have we that they will not be biased by prejudice and selfinterest The civil power can not enter the hidden recesses of the soul and quell the tumults raging there It can not invade the domestic circle to expel the intem perance and lewdness that enervate and debauch both mind and body It can trot suppress those base calumnies whis pered in the dark which poison the social atmosphere with their foul breath and breed hatred resentment and death You might as well expect to preserve a tree front decay by lopping off a few with ered branches while allowing the worm to gnaw at the roots as to preserve the social tree from moral corruption by pre venting some external crimes while leav ing the heart to be wormeaten by vice If the civil sword even by the aid of religion can scarcely restrain public dis orders how futile would be the attempt to do so without the cooperation of moral and religious influence If neither the vengeance of the civil power nor the hope of emoluments nor the esteem of our fellowmen nor the natural love of justice nor the influence- of education and culture nor all these motives conbined can suffice to maintain peace and order in society where shall we find an Adequate incentive to exact of nia a loyal obedience to the laws of the country Thisincentive is found only in religious principles Religion I maintain M the only sure ami solid bask of society Convince tae of the exlMeneeof a Divine Legislator the supreme source of all law by whom kings sign and lawgivers decree joat thip convince me of the troth of the I apostolic declaration that there is no power but from God and that those thatI are are ordained of God and that there j fore he who resisteth the power resisteth the ordinance of God convince me thatI there is a Providence who seeth my thoughts as well as my actions that there is an incorruptible Judge who can not be bought by bribes nor blinded by deceit who has no respect of persons who will render to every man according to his works who will punish transgressions and reward virtue in the life to come convince me that I am endowed with free will and the power of observing or of violating the laws of the countryand then you place before me a Monitor who impels me to virtue without regard to earthly emoluments or human applause and who restrains me from vice without regard to civil penalties you set before my conscience a living Witness who pur sues me in darkness end in light and in the sanctuary of home as well as in the arena of public life I POPULAR JOHN MIVELAZ His Death a Loss to Louis villes Social and Business Life John

Isis ActiveLife arid Exploits in the Emerald IsJeI Irishmen in the English Army in the Brotherhood in Numbers THE ATTEMPTED RISING IN IRELAND To Irish Nationalists of today the name of James Stephens the famous head cen ter of the Fenian Brotherhood brings but shadowy recollections of a figure that half a century ago attracted the attention of a considerable portion of the ciivlized world Stephens was born about seventy eight years ago in the city of Kilkenny He received an excellent scientific educa tion and adopted the profession of a civil and military engineer in which his skill and genius won him considerable ills tinction while he was but a school boy in years During the latter years of the repeal agitation Stephens was professionally engaged in the Great Southern Western railway at Inchicore Dublin He was a constant and interested attend ant at the Young Irelaud clubs where he soon gained a reputation as a speaker From Dublin his professional duties brought him to Thurles in the year 48 where he became associated with Smith OBrienThe engineer was one of the few clearsighted men who were with Smith OBrien at Ballingarry where the cab bage garden engagement brought defeat and disaster He fled from Ballingarry to the town of Tipperary where he endeavored to rouse the people but the news of the fiascohad preceded hint and he was forced to leave the place in hot haste He turned his face toward the house of John OMahony one of the last of the Young Irelanders to leave the field and after many narrow escapes reached it only to find the soldeirs and police in full possession He obtained informJtion as to O Ma bonys whin tltnarJd cFnttifa WBulr q tramp found him in a cabin on the mountain side net far from the chapel of Ballyneal near CarrickonSuir With OMahony was Michael Doheny The three set out together for the Comeragh mountains which they reached in safety andwhere the young outlaws were welcomed and kept in security for several months When the State trials were over and English law and order reigned once more in Ireland Stephens and OMahony slipped aboard a French schooner in Waterford harbor and were landed in France For a time after they had reached Paris the two Irish outlaws found it no easy matter to keep from statvation Finally Stephens who was well versed in French succeeded in obtaining employment as a contributor to the Paris newspapers and things looked brighter Stephens and OMahony worked hard for some years and had joined and become influential in a French revolutionary society They had gained considerable experience in this work and finally resolved to organize the Irish people at home and in America It was necessary that the organization should have a bone fide existence in America before commencing the work in Ireland and John OMahony sailed for New York Stephens remained In Paris until the summer of 1856 when he slipped over to Irelandand prepared himself for the great work he had in view by getting into touch with the sentiments of the people all over Ireland He gathered around him some brave spirits and founded the Phoenix Society This was to all outward observers broken up in 1858 by the State prosecutions but in reality iit only changed its form and in its place grew and spread that powerful national organization known as the Irish Republican Brotherhood Stephens revolutionary plan was very simple and although it did not mature completely the extent and rapidity of its progress surprised the leader himself almost as much as it astonished the Gov ernment The programme was to spread disaffection among the regular troops and the militia to take a secret census of the young men of all classes and creeds who were willing to fight to bring from the United States officers who had served in either the Union or Confederate army and finally to procure arms from America and from France Now every item of that programme except the last and by no means the least important the one relating to arms was carried out successfully Toward the close of the year 1804 the entire militia and seven regiments of the line were thoroughly Feuiauized and ready for work with their own officers secretly chosen or appointed But the civilians remained unarmed Stephens was urged giveItlmefMidiban therregulars already enrolled in the con armsIddepot8 ofD the country to Supplyyll the men in

founded by Stephens was I seized and suppressed With the close of the civil war many Irishmen who had won fame in the Union army on South ern battlefields returned to Ireland having been led to believe that a good sizedarmy of Irish patriots had already been organized and equipped andwas only waiting for competent commanders Among those who returned to Ireland at that time were Gen Michael Kerwin Gen Dennis F Burke of the Irish Brigade Gen William Halpin Col Thomas J Kelly Capt James Murphy and John Nolan When these dis tinguis ed soldiers had been in Dublin for a time they became dissatisfied Stephens insisted upon delay for i above stated and the movement reasonsII What havemight happened theII revolution actually begun no one can tell The fact is that the British Gov ernment got wind of Stephens plans found him in Fairfield house Sandy mount a suburb of Dublin through the skill of the famous Detective Dawson and on the morning of Saturday Novem ber 11 1805 the agitator was arrested and lodgedl in Richmond Bridewell prison Three days later he was ar raigned before Magistrate Stronge He was remanded for examination but before he could be brought into court again he bad escaped from prison His escape was planned by Capt John Ker win now employed in New York city and the plan was supervised and ap proved by Gen Kerwin It so happened that a man named Daniel Byrne a Fenian sympathizer was Night Warden in the prison It also happened that another Fenian sympathizer named John Breslin was a steward in the prison hospital Byrne was the custodian of the keys to the cells for a certain period every night It was arranged that an impression of the key to Stephens cell and to the main door of the prison should be taken in wax and carried to Capt Kirwin by Breslin From the impression thus made keys were made by a Fenian locksmith carried back by Breslin to Byrne who about 2 oclock in the morning of Friday November 24 1805 unlocked Stephens cell and conducted him to the inner wall of the prison The night was favorable for an escape as the rain poured down in torrents btepbens reached the top of the wall by means of a ladder lowered himself down to the

attention in IrishAmerican circles As heretofore stated the lease of the present Hibernian Hall to the combined divisions expires in July Could this not be renewed it necessitated the renting of

in England sine it predicts much trouble and disas ter to British interests The fac that the predictions of this almanac last yearthe decadence of Britisl influence in international affairs especially in the Far East the dis astrous losses in the Boer war los of trade labor depression and trou ble financial crisis the death of the Queengives ground for fear as to the future predictions for 1901 the three most important of which affecting England are May Ireland will rise agains England following the example of India accompanied by much blood shedSeptemberIudia will be vis ited by the most terrible famine it yearsOctoberAn outbreak will occur among the Dervishes in Britisl Soudan North Africa which wilt attain serious proportions before being suppressed These with the present condi tions of British affairs at home and abroad are certainly not an encour aging outlook for the first year ol the new century and seem to carry out a prophecy to which we alluded some time ago that beginning with the death of the Queen and the Boer war the first quarter of the Twentieth century would witness the downfall of England as a first class world power APATHY CAUSES SURPRISE The apathy of Germany to the plaintive appeal of England for international cooperation against Russian aggression in China has caused surprise because of the al leged secret alliance between Ger many on the Chinese matter It seems however that the Kaiser has buncoed his uncle or that Eng lands claims as to the nature of that alliance were exaggerated At any rate Germany instead promptly joining England in the effort to re strain Russia has maintained a dogged neutrality and inactivity regardless of Russias continued aggressions without even an ex planation Berlin dispatches state that officials of the German Foreign Office hold that the treaty between Russia and China under which Russia is accused by England of seizing territorial concessions in Manchuria is not inconsistent with the agreement between Germany and England that while there is a difference of views between the powers regarding the interpretation of the first article of the Manchurian treaty between Russia and China it is of slight importance that Rus sias acquisition of Manchuria is regarded by the German Govern ment as of no practical importance that the most important point is how China can provide payment of iindemnities for damages to foreign powers All of which clearly proves that Germany is looking out for Germany whether by cooperating with or opposing England and if the cash is not forthcoming in pay went of damages claimed would not be averse to taking a slice of territory or concessions in China either as collateral for or in lieu of the cash ENGLANDS WAY The famine in India which hor rified the world with its tales of des titution u and death by starvation Is followed by plague that will proba bly depopulate a vast area there beingloob deatha in Bengal alone the first week in WarchThis rJ SSrL n however is peculiar to England civilizing and Christianizing Indi like Ireland never knew famine and pestilence till England invade and began the subjugation of the country With English progress iiu civilizing India famine and plagt have become more frequent and widespread till they are now of almost annual occurrence and thousands of lives are sacrified But such is the history of English conquest If the people of a countr England wants can not be enslave and made to contribute to Englis avarice for gain they are summaril slaughtered or plundered of every thing and gotten rid of by starvation and disease There have been but two exceptionsthe America colonists who resented the first step toward their subjugation met fort by force and threw off England yoke and the Irish who thoug subjected to cruelty robbery starvation pestilence and exile sti1l maintain their distinct nationality and by persistence have forced England to greatly modify her rule ove them The correctness of livingpictures now so common in theaters are th wonder and admiration of all Ai evidence of the truly lifelike char acter of these pictures is given in- case ia from Detroit Mrs Agnes Booth has a

Pekin recognizes her brother among the moving soldiers on the canvas She wasi shocked and almost fainted Correspondence proved the correctness of the picture and located the long lost brother who is now on his way to this country and will visit hisi sister The Supreme Court has again set iside antirailroad legislation affecting Tennessee roads These laws the result of partisan fanaticism ire dearly illegal and the politicians who advocate and secure them enactment are not ignorant of that fact but they pander to a prejudice based on ignorance to get the votei to put them in office regardless of he injury to trade and commerce end the resultant litigation and rouble Tennessee has suffered heavily from such legislation and will be many years in regaining her ost trade and wealth It seems to be a game of seesaw in South Africa Gen Kitchener eported that the English captured Pietersburg the Boer capital after he fall of Pretoria but the seat of government had been again moved

dsbornes ancient castle surrounded by her own Victoria Queen of England has give up her throne IShe has been called home by her Creator there to give an account If she practiced what the Savior taugl in His sermon on the Mount Was Victoria meek and merciful or was she full of queenly pride Did she practice Christianity while extending her empire Did she treat the poor uncultivated heathen as a being that had a wilt Did she obey the laws of God on Sina when he said Thou shalt not kilt Was Victoria kind and charitable as her Savior did command How did she treat her subjects when there was famine in the land Where was that noble spirit we heard so much about In this great Victorian age while hoarding up her millions without givinj any aid Was Victorias reign apeaceful one thro her three score years or more Or was it a page of murder crime and robbery and nearly one continuo war Did she not oppress all weak and feebl nations that conld not resist her power And through robbery and confiscation annex them to her own And iis this the noble spirit that now ha passed to fame O Godl what crimes have been committed in Queen Victorias namelI The Roman empire ceased to exist be cause it oppressed mankind And Turkish rule went down in blood before the march of the time The Spanish yoke then took their plat and for the crimes that they hay done On Santiagos battle field we saw her set ting sun Thus ever and always has been the fats of those that oppressed mankind And Englands doom will surely come for all her hellish crimes And when the day of reckoning come and they will be forced to stand the strain Theyll wish to God they never had ta Queen Victoria reign FlNNRGAN GRAND SUCCESS Catholic Knights and Ladles Enjoy Speech Song and Music The first entertainment of the

bad rained heavily all day but having cleared up a little I drew rein as I approached the town On such an evening the scene was far from inspiring The rood followed the windings of the seashore here bounded by huge rocks over which the waves were dashed furiously like demons storming a fort About five miles from the mainland lay the little island of Innismurry almost shrouded in mist and only discernable by the ring of white foam which marked its coast Be yond stretched the Atlantic raging with all the force and passion of a November storm I had barely time to take in this scene when I was accosted by a man who seemed to rise out of the road at my side Its a sevare day yer honor said he politely touching his hat God be good to them thats at sea on an evening like thisIt is very stormy indeed but I think the worst of it is now over God sind it thin for its hard times for the fishermen though its mighty good for the stilHn Good for the stillinl I said What do you mean Why I mane theres little fear of the boys being interrupted in weather like thisInterrupted at what Why at the stillin av coorss and by the same token yonder theyre at it and he pointed to the little island already referred to now partially disrobed of its mistDo you mean to say that there is illicit distillaion now going on at that islandFaix and youve just guessed Itj and sure it comes mighty handy by rayson that the fair is on Monday- I need not weary the reader with all that passed between me and my chance companion whom I recognized as Mickey Mehaffey a hangeron about one of the hotels in the town From Mickey I learned that the inhabitants of Innis murry consisted of about a score of families who obtained a living by fish ing and illicit distillation and I grieve to say chiefly by the latter Mickey kept a wistful eye on the island particularly on one little curl of blue smoke that he assured me arose from the identical cabin where the stills were at that moment being fired Theyll be sure to land it 01l Sunday night said he as Monday is the fair The new gauger is very sevare Im told and means to make a raid on them Who told you that I asked Oh the divil a one sure Ive been dhraming it or something Well Mickey said I since youve been so very free with your information I dont mind telling you that I am the new gauger myself and certainly mean to put a stop to this smuggling iif possi ble iiOh the saints protect us piously ejaculated Mickey Bad luck to the tongue of mel Ive been an informer all unknownst to meself but your honor wont betray me Never fear I knew already most of what you told me Arragh did you now Well and if you want any more information about them same smugglers sure Mickey Me haffeys the boy that can find it for ye I was certainly rather amused at Mickeys sudden change of principles and telling him to call on me next day if he had further information to give I put spurs to my horse and trotted into townI only been recently appointed to Ballyrougban with special instructions to do my utmost to suppress smuggling which at that time was very prevalent in the district And from all the informa tion I could gather I came to the conclu sion that the most effectual way of doing this was to intercept landing of the goods from the island Thesupply 1 reasoned would soon cease if I succeeded in cut ting off the demand Mickey kept his promise about giving me further information I had just thrown myself on the lounge next even ing after dinner when a fiery altercation broke in upon my rest It was my landlady and Mickey on the stairs Ye cant disturb him row Im telling ye hes only after his dlnuer But I want to see him particular persisted Mickey endeavoring to pass her on the stairs And its want yell meet with thin ye can watch for him as he goes out in the morningIts matter of life and death Im telling ye and the mornin wouldnt do at all at all Well and what if it is a matter of life and death Sure he isnt the dochtor I now thought proper to interfere If that is Mickey Mehaffey I said you may allow him to come up Mrs Mc KetchupVery wellsorbad luck to the dirty boots o ye This last to Mickey in an undertoneWell Mickey shut the door and let me hear what you have to say Ive learned it all sor Hugh Shan gave me all the news this mornin afther yeknowWhat news did he give you Why about the landing of the poteen for the fair Its just as I towld ye Theyre to land it tonight about 12 oclock as the moon will be dark by that time II Where do they usually land it I ukedWell OTi there are only two places where a boat can put in with safety Wan of etheSmugglers Pier is just beyond the high rocks forninftt BallyrotighBH and the other Isi about a quarter of a mile farther along the shore Its not usafe in the dark u the Smug glers Pier and so they never land at It After arranging with Mickey to meet me that night at a certain point I dis dEo NIINNLLMIIIIINIIINIINNLIIIINIIINMINIINIIIIINIINIININ missed him and proceeded to mature my plans for trapping the smugglers It was this I arranged with the coast guard officer to meet me at the Smugglers Pier about 11 oclock lie was to bring two boats and three boatmen with him and row up silently from the station to the place appointed Three constables of the Royal Irish were also detailed to meet me at the same time and place Mickey as previously stated was to go with myself and act as guide The rendezvous was about a mile from the town so I started off about 1030 on my secret expedition Fortunately Ballyrougban retires early to rest so not a soul was to be seen as I passed through the town A subdued cough at the outskirts told me that Mickey was true to his appointment- We walked in silence to the place and found the palers as Mickey called them waiting The coast guard officer and his men had not yet arrived They came however shortly afterward and I gave my final instructions One boat manned by the coast guard officer a boatman and one of the constables was to row about four hundred yards out and lie on its oars out of the track of the smug glers but ready to intercept them on their return to the island if they escaped us A shot from my revolver was the signal for them to be on the alert The other boat I directed to be kept out of sight between the rocks but ready for action at a moments notice These ar rangements completed every one waited quietly at his post to watch the turn of events It was now midnight and though the moon had been down almost half an hour there was no sign of the smugglers Could it be Mickey was playing us false This thought had just occurred to me when my ear caught the sound of distant oarsDid you hear anything sir one of the constables whispered Hush listen I said Yes there was no mistake Nearer and clearer came the plash of the oars and the creaking of the rowlocks and in a few minutes afterward the boat grated on the gravel within a few yards of where we lay concealed J saw through the darkness that there were only two men in the boat with a boy to steer The former proceeded at once to land the goods They brought a keg ashore but before I could give the order for capture a ludicrous incident betrayed us Mickey I noticed had been nodding with sleep for some time and at the most critical moment began to snore so loudly that the men at once dropped the keg and made a rush for the boat Arrest them I shouted and one of the policemen succeeded in catching hold of an oar just as the boat was being pushed off but the smuggler was equal to the occasion He drew the oar toward the boat then pushed it rapidly back again and next moment the unfortunate constable was left sprawling in the water Man the boatl I shouted asLobserved they were about to escape us You I said to the policeman who got the duck ing will remain on shore to guard the seizure and Mickey may keep you com pany All ready I asked stepping into the boat and at the same tithe discharg ing my revolver as a signal to the coast guard officer in the other boat All right sir Then pull off and awaywe went in the wake of the smugglers The chase was an exciting one They got about twenty yards ahead but our boat was the swifter and we soon came up with them Now we have them I exclaimedas our other boat came into view intercepting their course to the island They were not however to be caught so easily Making a rapid double to the left our boat was shot far ahead of them before we could turn I now saw that the ad vantage did not lie on our side for al though we had greater speed and greater numbers on the other hand the smug glers boat was so formed as to twist and turn about with the greatest rapidity rendering it very difficult focus to come into close quarters with theta Again we came up with them and again they made a double toward the mainland leaving us still at a distance- I now adopted a different mode of oper ations Both our boats were between the smugglers and Innismurry and directed them to separate about twenty yards and row close behind the enemy keeping the latter always in front and between the two boats This plan was perfectly successful The smugglers were now compelled to move on before us towards the mainland any attempt to turn aside being prevented by either boat Their only escape now was landward and they made a spurt to reach the shore before us heading directly for the Smugglers Pier but their boat had hardly touched the gravel when our men jumping into the water surrounded it and took the occupants in charge ere they had time to landI now directed my attention to matters ou shore Mickey was still there but the constable was nowhere to be seen A feeble groat from behind the rocks led Mickey to exclaim Its the paler yer boaor said he He tuk mighty bad after you left Has he been to the keg I asked Fair and he has thin and it didnt agree with him It evidently did not The ground beside him bore witness to the fat Confound the stuff growled one of the boatmen who had taken the oppor tunity to follow the palers example and have a pull at the keg He was expector ating at a furious rate and making hor rible grimaces Is it poison feebly groan the policeman Poison Confound it said the boat man its water and as salt M blazes It was indeed water fresh drawn from He81si1Ceehnnthe keg in our absence and had taken a good putt at U before he discovered that it wasnt the tote Iaihowen JtproI I 1 duced such a nausea and sickness of stomach that the poor fellow thought he was poisoned and became frightened into the ludicrous state of distress in which we found him I now examined the contents of another keg in the boat Salt water also Mean while our three prisoners who under stood not a word of English stood composedly looking on and seemed quite satisfied with their position Our own position was certainly a novel one There we stood eight men in her Majestys service with three prisoners in charge and for what For having two kegs of salt water in their possession whilst the broad Atlantic rolled at our feet No one appeared to be able to give any explanation of our peculiar seizure and we were about to leave the place in disgust when the coastguard drew my attention to the sound of oars farther up the shore and we could dis cern a boat pulling off towards the island Depend upon it said he that boat has just been landing the poteen and this has only been a decoy to divert our attention from the real culprits This indeed was the true explanation of the mystery so I discharged my pris oners who coolly tossed the kegs into their boat and pulled off towards Innis tnurry I afterwards learned that Mickey with all his apparent simplicity was a shrewd confederate of the smugglers and that it was really he who planned and set us on this wildgoose chase They expected it seems a raid made on them that night and Mickey was deputed under cover of giving information to learn the mode of attack and if possible to thwart it In this he was but too successful And although on subsequent occasions I had occasional revenge for the trick played on me that night I must confess that these later and more successful experi ences appear to me but tame and com monplace compared with my first en counter with the Donegal smugglers RECENT DEATHS The funeral of Elizabeth Flynn who passed away last Saturday at the resi

connected with every deserving Dublin charity he was one of the found I ers of the Mater Misericordiae Hospital and for many years he was a useful member of the North Dublin Board of Guard- Ians At a meeting of that body a reso 1 lution of condolence with the relatives of the deceased was unanimously passed Justice Gibson in opening the County Galway assizes said the condition of the West Riding appeared to be normal The returns from the East Riding gave some reason for apprehension Craughwel appeared to be a center of disturbance What thereason was for that it was not 1 for him to say It might be only a symp tour of passing unrest and not based on ia deepseated malady On the appHcatioi of the Crown the Craughwell conspiracy cases were postponed to the next assizes The death took place at the advanced age of fourscore and ten of the venerable pastor of Tallow parish Rev J Premier gast the oldest priest in Waterford diocese at the parochial house Tallow He belonged to the respected Prendergas family of Derrygrath near Clonmel and war uncle of the Coadjutor Bishop of Philadelphia and the Rev P Prender gast Dungarvan He was stationed for many years in Tallow and in his long missionary life had done noble work for 1 the old parish A shocking burning fatality took place in Armagh A servant named Susan Me Garvey in the employment of Josiah Peel druggist Armagh was engaged at the kitchen fire melting a tin of beeswax for the parlor floor It appears that Iin- putting some turpentine in the wax Iit either fell into the fire or became ignited in some way and set fire to the unfortunate girls apron which she appears to have made an effort to get off but could not owing to the apron being tied too tightly The poor girls screams brought Peel and his apprentice to the kitchen only to find her one mass of flames which Peel did his utmost to extinguish with the aid of a sheet She was speedily conveyed to the Armagh County Infirmary but succumbed to her injuries Recently a man named Thomas Ad ilerly was shot dead by a soldier named Martin Dooley at a place called Ring town near the town of Mountralb Richard Rafter a shop assistant in Mountrath deposed that he went home to his fathers house at Ballyfin in company with Dooley Before leaving Mount rath they met deceased and arranged that he would come to meet them in the even- Ing When at home witness got a rook rifle and Dooley and himself were shooting about the place In the evening they returned to Mountrath and Dooley was carrying the rifle which witness had lent him At Ringtown they met Atlderly who said to Dooley I am a Boer Dooley replied If you are I will put you down II and presenting the rifle fired Adderly staggered and fell into Dooleys arms Dooley exclaiming MyI God is he shot It Vas only pretending I was They carried deceased into the house of a man named Danghen but he was dead almost immedintely Medical evidence having been given the jury re turned a verdict of manslaughter against Dooley who is at present in Kilkenny jail on remand In his eloquent speech in Bradford John Redmond declared that in spite of the dissensions of the last ten years and the helplessness they engendered the prospects of the Irish national cause were bright and hopeful He paid a brilliant tribute to the United Irish League which William OBrien founded and spread in the teeth of the furious opposition and denunciation not of the Castle alone but of many professing Nationalists as well Once more there has sprung up in Ireland great united popular move menta movement in some respects greater closer and more powerful than the movement of the Land League or the National League a movement that was founded upon the experience of the suc cesses and the mistakes of former movements and a movement that was stronger because the Irish were more secure in their homes and in a better position to take an independent line in political affairs This great movement had in augurated what he was convinced would be the last fight for the possession by the Irish people of the land of their fathers ItL was idle he continued for Englishmen to complain that Ireland was dis loyal so long as Ireland was oppressed Only by the concession of her freedom could loyalty in Ireland as in Canada and other selfgoverning portions of the Empire be secured Jury packing has signally failed to secure the conviction of fourteen inno cent men prosecuted before the Lord Chief Justice of Ireland at the Kerry assizes Nor can the failure be attributed to any hesitation on the part of the pros ecutiou in the manipulation of the jury The prisoners innocent men as the event has proved were deliberately subjectedI throughout to gross hardship andI shameful indignity They had surren dered to their ball They were and eager to take their trial readyI charges preferred against them Crown The idea that they should seek to escape was too absurd to be suggested1 or conceived by any reasonable being Yet on the first night of the trial at the instance of the Crown ecutocthei Lord Chief Justice refused to readmit them to bail and committed them to prison Worse still those innocent ami respectable men were

Parsons P- ORWDGE JEFFERSON COUNTY COURT t Subject tq the Action of the Democratic Party matters for consideration Fiftytwo Catholic jurors were ordered by the Crown to stand aside thus exhausting the panel and leaving only eleven jurors available The result was that the first of the fifty two subjected to this indig nity was entitled by law to be sworn if the Crown would allege no cause against him The Crown had no cause to al lege there was no cause beyond the fact that the insulted juror was a Catholic So this juror was of necessity allowed to try the case together with the eleven others whom the Crown prosecutor had selected from the entire panel as the most suitable for the purpose It is therefore a matter of congratulation alike to the innocent prisoners to the public and to the administrators of the law that jury packing of a specially audacious and offensive character has proved abortive in Kerry ALBERT F MARTIN Doing Wonderful Work For Catholic Knights of America The
