Gibbons Before Sailing For Home Tells What His Native Land Owes to the Religion- of Erin Is Presented With Addresses at the Bishops House in Qucenstown EXILE SUBSIDIARY TO HOLY PURPOSES Cardinal Gibbons who sailed on the Etruria last Sunday was the recipient on Saturday evening of two addresses one from the Quecnstown Urban Council the other from the Young Mens Catholic Society at the house of the Bishop of CAPT II B GRANT Chairman Competitive Drill Committee Cloyne in Quecnstown Replying he saidI shall bethirtythrce years a Bishop tomorrow and it was a great consolation to me to offer during my recent visit my homage to the Holy Father Ireland is undoubtedly a great missionary country Whatever may be the unfortunate causes leading toothe expatriation of the sons and daughters of Ireland from their soil Almighty God has made exile subsidiary to higher holier purposes because He has made the Irish people the foremost among the missionaries the church has got throughout the world Without any spirit exaggeration I can say that so far as the United States are concerned there is not a town city or hamlet which has not been sanctified by the preaching of Irish Catholic priests and has not been served by noble Catho lic men and women from Ireland But for their labors and piety we could not today boast of the mark of progress of religion in America Of course other nations are cooperating with the Irish German French and Americans but Ireland has borne the foremost part Though we have splendid monuments of religion in America Queenstowns great Cathedral church is fit to take rank with any I looked at it tonight with pride mingled with the sentiment of envy that I have not a Cathedral of its age The future of the church in Ireland as well as the church in America de pends on the zeal piety and devotion of the rising generation Let me have the making of the young men of Ireland then I do not care who takes care of the I THOMAS C TIMBERLAKE Secretary Exculive Committee mature generation The young men of Ireland have a great destiny before them Although my ancestors were Irish and I love Ireland yet I was tarn in Baltimore and the United State is my mother coun tryThe Cardinals eloquence was greatly appreciated and applauded Cardinal Gibbons advised theybuth of Ireland in an address at Wexford to re main at home and employ their best energy and enterprise in their own land No man or woman who can eke out a livelihood in Ireland is well advised he thinks to emigrate to America and enter upon a keen almost desperate struggle for existence under the trying circumstances there Ireland Is blessed with a delightful climate he pointed out and extremes are unknown there whereas in America these extremes are a serious drawback to life Everywhere in Ireland the clergy have told him the one vice of the country intemperance He advised the pretty young ladies among his audi ence to marry only men who abstain from drink The multiplicity of public houses all over Ireland pained smut sur+ prised harm The cause of temperance can wake little progress until they are reduced ftbI expected that he 1 arrive fin New York tomorrow and next week a disjtlnguishedpie of Baltimore when he reaches that I city YOUNG MENS INSTITUTE The Board of Grand Directors Meet Hero Sunday Afternoon Sunday afternoon at the Willard Hotel there will be a very important meeting of the Grand Board of Directors of the Ken tucky Jurisdiction of the Young Mens Institute when the time and place of holding the next biennial convention which occursin 1902 will be determined upon Prom present indications it seems likely that Lexington will be selected and the convention held during the mouth of August Harry R Swanu and George J Lautz of this city are Chairman and Secretary respectively the other members of the board being Messrs Fred Keune of Bowling Green William Hoffman Mem phis James J OBrien Lexington Will ism Hamilton St Louis J J Barry New

most highly respected citizens He was born in Tipperary Ireland but came to New York when a young rasa moving to Jeffersonville over forty years ago where he married and raised a large family all of whom are well known and actively identified with the commercial progress of our neighboring city Michael Marra was a real Irish gentle man of the old school a man of the greatest integrity but plain and unassum lug and all who ever lad business or social relations with him held him in the highest esteem Besides his widow he leaves four grown children the eldest being James Marra the well known and prosperous grocer For many years he had been employed at Sweeneys foundry and was lpopular with his fellow workmen No death for a long time has caused more sincere sorrow which was plainly evidenced by the large attendance at his funeral at St Augustines church where Rev Father OConnell sang the solemn requiem mass for the repose of his soul o CAME OUT ALL RIGHT Lawn Fete Excursion and the Moonlight on the River The past week was a good one for lawn fetes and outings and with the excep tion of the IrishAmerican Society all were most successful Monday there was the usually large attendance at St Patricks excursion to Fern Grove where an enjoyable day was spent as the showers which prevailed here did not extend that far up the river All the boats were required to carry the merry makers and everybody had a pleasant timeOn Wednesdry and Thursday nights the annual lawn fete of the Holy Cross Church took place and never before did such large numbers gather at a similar event Rev Father Cunningham per sonally looked after the pleasure of all who attended The grounds were beauti fully decorated with lanterns and flags and presented a brilliant scene The remarkable social success of the fete only goes to show the great popularity of Father Cunnlgham who is one of the but known clergymen of Louisville with all classes of people especially the youug men and women as will doubt less be practically demonstrated later The moonlight of Trinity Ministrel Company on Wednesday evening up the river was also a social success The boat was crowded with young people who wete royally entertained the gentlemen in charge carrying out a splendid pro gramme Anything given by Trinity is always sure of attracting a large attend ance The rains here on Monday caused a postponement of the IrishAmerican Society reunion till Monday night at Riverview to which all are cordially invited o TOURED IRELAND Letters received by relatives this week from Ireland convey the pleasing news that Miss Beezie Hahnau of this city and Miss Marie Walsh of Chicago have completed a most enjoyable tour of the Emerald Isle and are now in Paris Miss Hannan did not succeed in kissing

of time Revolutionary Movement Time National Party Is Vindicated by time House of Commons GREAT TRIAL AND TROUBLE AHEAD The Worlds special correspondent cables from London that Ireland has a period of great trouble and trial immedi ately ahead it is feared Englands new panacea for Irish ills is to reduce the Irish representation in the British Parlia ment from lOS members to seventy and to redistrict Ireland so as to give a large proportion of the scats to the small area i in Ulster which returns antiNationalist members At the same time a drastic revision of the rules of Parliamentary procedure is contemplated expressly drafted so as to neutralize the activities of a minority of the dimensions the i Irish Nationalists are expected to return under the new dispensation Ireland was guaranteed an irreducible minimum of 103 members under the act of union but this pledge is to be violated The plea is that representation is to be based absolutely on the population These measures are the expression of the violent antiIrish feeling prevalent among the majority of Englishmen a feeling Intensified by the Irish disap i proval of the South African war The Irish leaders naturally regard this policy with indignation and will fight it irrecon cilably They had succeeded after many years in weaning the people of Ireland from sympathy with and support of secret movements convincing them that Ireland could achieve her rights by reli ance on Parliamentary effort Now the Irish representation in Parliament is to be reduced to nullity This withdrawal of constitutional rights is not made under the stresanL violent agitation Or disturbance The criminal statistics show that Ireland has the least crime of any country in the world Except for a few offenses of an inconsiderable character arising from agrarian troubles in one or two districts Irelandwould be practically without crime The Nationalists expect that the new policy will inevitably provoke a renewal of the revolutionary movement The Irish party has triumphantly closed the session of Parliament by getting the s editor and the publisher of the Globe one of their bitterest most virulent as sailants in the English press subjected to the humiliation of being brought to the bar of the House of Commons and reprimanded by the Speaker for accusing the Irish members of corruption The unsuccessful attempt of the Globe men to evade withdrawing the charges for which they could not allege an atom of foundation only intensified the indignity of their position and accentuated the tri umph of the Irish party The whole London presswith the sole exception of Astors paper which was silentjoins in declaring that whatever may be said of the Irish party politically nothing has ever happened to warrant the slightest imputation of financial cor tion The writer of the editorial which the editor and publisher suffered was Lord Mountmorres a poor Irish peer whose father was murdered in 1880 at the beginning of the land agitation Bourke Cockrau has left London for Hamburg but before his departure prom ised to return specially from New York to lecture before the Irish Literary So ciety in London next December 0 PASSED

Wednesday and were overtaken by the storm which pre J vented their landing at New Orleans for many hours Their friends in this city were advised of their departure and for a r time after the news of the storm were greatly alarmed for their safety George Heinzman who was formerly a welll known leather worker here will coon return to make Louisville 1iis future home I WALTERS DAY tN CAMP There was

Osborne place when overhauled and made ready for the F reception of the orphans will un doubtedly be one of the best insti tutions of its kind in the country and will be a living monument to the

of this diocese IN HOC SIQNO VINCES These words now conspicuously displayed about the city have ex cited some curiosity as to their meaning and origin The emblem of the Knights Templar who hold their conclave here next week is the Maltese cross and the motto In hoc signo vincesIu this sign wilt thou conquer The emblem is as old as Chris r fianify THeorigin of the motto dates back to the Roman Empire The Christian church was persecut ed from its incipiency driven from the east to the west and had al most ceased to exist except in the Roman Empire then torn by dis sension and divided into the eastern F and western and though like Christianity threatened with ex tinction by the barbarians of the east and north who also cruelly persecuted the Christians Chris tianity and civilization as well were receding to the west before then barbarian invaders who ravaged with fire and sword sparing noth ingConstantine Emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire for whom Constantinople was named was a convert to Christianity and strove alously to defend and advance sanity as had his predecessors to destroy He adopted as his standard the Maltese cross and his t mottoIIIn hoc signo vinces His Roman legions following this stand ard defeated the barbarians and drove them beyond his borders and his empire became the cradle where Christianity was nurtured and from which it spread to Western Europe But Constantine did not destroy though he broke for a time the power of the barbarians who in time overran all the Eastern empire and Central Europe leaving Only desolation in their wake Christi anity and civilization were confined to a narrow strip on the western and southern coasts of Europe w The Christian powers unable to singly resist the invader combined in various organizations military xXto character to defend and further Christianity and then came the Crusades Prominent among those organizations was the Knights of Malta The standard and motto of all the Crusades were those of Con stantine and thus were they per petuated With the final success of the Crusades in crushing the power of the barbarian hordes and thus relieving all Europe of danger Christianityl found another means ban the sword neceaaary for its 0 Isfense and furtherance preach gauc teachIflJ7i1d missionary J and educational orders replaced the military which gradually ceased to be religious became divided as to nationality and most of them disbandedThe hts of Malta continued in existence longest but finally divided and deteriorated until only a small body claiming that name remained and they finally dis banded as an organization At tempts to reform the order were made by kings and nobles and it is claimed that the Masonic Knights Templar of today trace their ori gin to the Knights of the Crusades and they have as their standard the Maltese cross and their mottoIIIn hoc signo vinces TO FORCE A STIKE A strike of 30000 cotton mill operatives is in prospect in the Fall River Mass district against a pro posed reduction of 15 per cent in their wages As this is the only proposed reduction of wages by em ployers in the past two years it has caused surprise and comment but the reason thereof is made clear by Mr Matthew Borden in an inter view He is a millionaire cotton mill owner but not connected with the Manufacturers Association that proposed the reduction of wages and his mills are not involved in the threatened strike Mr Borden has never had trouble with his employes and has frequently aided in preventing or adjusting labor troubles in other cotton mills He says liThe mill owners are seeking to force a strike in order to dispose of a surplus of goods that at present is choking the mills They have proceeded in a somewhat unusual manner by announcing far in advance a cut in wages The object it seems to me is to produce a strike among the operatives and in that manner accomplish a curtail ment of goods Personally I dont approve of this way of doing busi ness It would be far better more businesslike and manly to meet the issue squarely lay the case before the men and explain the necessity for the temporary layoff The men are honest and have I believe the best interests of their employers at heart and would be willing to ac cept such a condition philosoph ically and in a manner becoming sensible men A cut of 15 per cent in wages is a serious matter and will work great hardship in Massachusetts where the cost of living is high The employes declare it means less than living wages and will certainly cause a strike if the order is not withdrawn before September 3r This is one of the not infrequent cases where it is the employers who force trouble in labor matters And yet labor agitators and walking delegates are condemned for caus ing strikes As a rule nowadays it is not the labor union that is to blame for strikes Labor unions pppose strikes and only resort to them as a last alternative against injustice and wrong a fact the American public are coming to un derstand HORRIBLE BRUTALITY The arriving of the Kaffirs in South Africa to make war on the conIIdemnation evidenced by Government officials l and the press seeking to justify the action on the plea that the Boers did it firstwhich is emphatically I denied by President Kruger and claiming that England has never resorted to the arming of savages to make war on civilized people j IndeedI It was England who armed O and turned loose savage Indians ouI the Americans in the Revolution and again in the War of 1812 But then perhaps the Americans were not considered civilized in those days The horrible brutality andl degeneracy of the British being brought to light in the Boer war iis nothing new It is but a repeti tion of her course in all times andI countries Lord

to this day famine and pestilence year b eyear which the charity of th world vainly seeks to relieve The Boer war has placed England oh the defensive in more than mere military prestige It is showing

His Intensely Eloquent Address to the Hibernians of iWashington 1 s Irishmen SkilledJ1u the Art of Pence Better Than Warfare 6 The Story of Ireland Should Not Bo Lightly Dealt With POLICEMANS CLUB SOLDIERS SWORD h At the recent annual excursion of the Washington Hibernian the principal speaker was Terence V Powderly whose intensely eloquent address evoked most enthusiastic applause from his hearers His speech is one that should be read by young Irishmen and tfor that reason we print the following portions When I inquired what subject I would be expected to discuss with you this evening the answer I received was Oh say a few words on the Irish question The Irish question is bne that can not be disposed of in a few words nor can the tale be told by everybody While I feel complimented and honored in being se lected to talk on a th me so old so fruit ful and indeed so inspiring I must admit my lack of ability to do justice to the subject for the Irish question is the story of a nations hopes heartbreaking failures victories triumphs reverses and successes It is a story so interwoven with sadness and tears as to require in one approaching it the elements of the artist as well as the orator It is not a story that can be toll in a few words and it is one that should not and can not be lightly dealt with I shall not attempt to discuss the Irish question tonight and will say but a few words on some phases of it as they occur to me Those who discuss Irish affairs and particularly the Irishman are apt to stop short of his true character and true nature for the world has been taught to regard the Irishman as a warrior a fighter forgetful of the greater fact beyond that he is sentimental as well as brave skilled in the arts of peace much better than in the science of warfare and that the tracing of his master hand may be found upon the map of every civilized nation on earth We frequently hear it said in a joking way that the Irishman makes a good policeman I admit that the indictment is well laid but it should be remembered that a policeman is the conservator of peace that it is hia duty to prevent the unruly the riotous gad the criminal front exercising their vocations To be a good policeman is to be a good citizen and surely no Irishman need blush when charged with an offense of that kind Lest we forget it is well to recall the fact that if the Irish policemans club guards the peace of cities the Irishmans sword has carved the foundation stones of many a nation and his pen has written the constitutions of kingdoms and com monwealths There must be a reason why men re gard the Irish as warlike they were not always so regarded It is true that Irishmen fight the battles and are to be found in the armies of all nations but that does not argue that they are not as skilled in the arts of peace as in war When the Irish people were charged with idleness one of Englands foremost men John Bright gave testimony in their behalf in these words They are the hardest working people in the world they are willing effective and generous with their muscle and brain Ireland was once a prosperous nation and her marts of trade were as busy as any in the world She raised and exported cattle living and cured she exported leather hides and wool both raw and manufac tured and these exportations were car ried in Irish ships built in Irish cities by the hands of Irish mechanics and laborers and these ships carried their burdens to England the American colonies the nations of tie East and West of Europe and the Orient It is true that the Irish are both sen timental and warlike but they were a manufacturing and BJ commercial people until the free trade policy of the Kingdom to which her people arc subject gained the mastery over her industries by combining the Parliaments of Great Britain and Ireland in one Look at the map of Ireland and you will see that of her thirtytwo counties nineteen are kissed by the waves her navigable rivers flow down to the sea and in her harbors may ride safely at anchor the fleets fef tile world If ever nature intended a land to be a garden of industry that land was Ireland if ever landwas favored by the God of nature Ireland is that lands for she possesses climate and soil men and women fitted for any work that can be done in any land beneath the sun In the debates in the Irish Parliament on the question of union Henry Grattan and Hussey Burgh demanded for Ireland the right of free aad unrestricted com mercial intercourse with other nations but when they spoke of free trade then the words did not convey the same mean ing that that term does today What they sought was a elease from the restrictions on Irish trade imposed by the British Parliament forth benefit of alien mltnufacturers1 The historian Mitc ellfeit explanation of these statements of rattan and Burgh says They did not mean that imports and exports should beifree of duty to the State but only that jhe fact of import and export itself should not be restrained by foreign kwtMymeut that the duties to be d riv4 fitKmld be imposed by Irelands own Prliment and in the sole interest of Ireland hmelf This dis I o DD tinction is the more important to be ob served because modern free traders have appealed to enlightened web and cited the words of Grattan and his colleagues as an authority in favor of abolition of import and export duties The citation is by no means applicable If one should doubt the truth of Mitchells statement he has but to turn to the report of the meeting in Waterford held in 1779 and read the resolution there adopted Resolutions of like kind were passed all over Ireland and they became so notorious their effect became so marked that in spite of the restrictions of British legislation the trade of Ireland began to take on new life and then it was that the struggle to amalgamate the Parliament of Ireland with that of Great Britain became fiercer and continued to- wage until in 1800 the articles of union signedHow heard it said that the Irish fight the battles of all coun tries but their own and while it is true that Irish valor has stemmed the tide of battle and Irish blood has flowed upon the fields ofall lands it has never been dishonorably sbdand in the heart of every Irishman who has taken part in the wars of any of the nations of earth there lives the hope that the science of war acquired on alien fields may one day oe turned to good account on the hills and plains of his own native land While the Irish are regarded as a warlike people they are essentially a commercial a man ufacturing and an agricultural people Their arts were the arts of peace until treachery at home and numbers from abroad broke down oppositian and welded the Irish Parliament to that of its sister kingdom across the channel The Irish question today put in a few words is Shell Ireland have a Parlia ment of her own through which to ex press the will of her people The strug gle of late years has been around that one pivotal point and surely it is not asking too much to give to Ireland the same rights now enjoyed by Canada and Aus tralia Call the roll of the English arm ies now living and summon from the trenches her soldier dead and nearly every other man will respond to an Irish name This can not be said of the men ofeither Australia or Canada When the destinies of Europe trembled in the bal auce when the red cross of England and the standard of Prussia met in triumph ou 1Valerlwas an Irishman who led those combined armies to victoryso that if for no other reasou than because of gratitude for the valor of her sous Eng land should mete out justice to her and her people by the reestablishment of an Irish Parliament in College green As I said in the beginning the Irish question is one that would take too much of your time and attention to discuss on an occasion like the present and I will not weary you with a further reference to the Irish people or Ireland Let me say a few words of the Irish people of America and if what I say shall appeal to you as an attempt to give advice bear with me aud after leaving here think it over and see if some profit may not be derived from an application of the lesson intended to be conveyed Leaving the heroes of the battlefield to one side let me direct your attention to an Irish hero who at the present time en deavors to occupy the center of the stage and who rallies around him the unthink ing who might otherwise be more profit ably engaged The Irish character is in a large meas ure judged by the men we thrust forward as our representatives and who are they I may be pardoned if I say that the Cor betts the Mahers the Sultivans and others of the prizering who represent the brutal rather than the refined in man are pointed to as typical of Irish manhood and nationhood- I rode up to the Capitol some time ago on an F street car Two gentlemen sat behind me discussing various phases of our national life One of them casually remarked that the Irish are quick to learn but do not learn the best They are given to drinking and prizefighting and you rarely find one of them occupy ing an exalted position The conversa tion was carried on until near the Capi tol and one of the gentlemen asked me a question as to the best means of reach ing the galleries I then had an oppor tunity of breaking in on the conversation and took accession to say to him that I had been an unintentional but not unwill ing listener to their discourse and that if they would pardon me I would suggest a visit to Arlington before they left Wash ington that if they In doing so would pass up and down the serried columns of marble monuments erected to commemo rate the heroism of men who lay under the sod I they would see such names as Murphy Kelly Rafferty ODonnell Campbell OReilly Cullon Doherty Shaughnessy and ORourke that if they took occasion to carefully scrutinize the gate through which they passed they would see the name of Sheridan above it not only as they entered but on coming out as well That the names they would read there testified to the deeds of patriotism of Irishmen and sons of Irish men and were not inscribed upon these stones or monuments because of work done between the ropes of the ring of the prizefighter The honorable dis tinction was won on the field of battle in defense ofa nations life and surely every man who loves his country and his countrys flag should be willing to accord the poor meed of praise due to the dead who have not died in vain I was asked not long ago to deliver a lecture at a university on some phase of the Irish question and I have in mind several distinct types of the Irish charac ter that I intend to speak about and strange as it may appear to you none of these ever drew sword on the field of battle None of them ever invaded the precincts of a prize ring and all of them represent the highest type of manhood and patriotism More than that all of them may justly be claimed by the United States as well as Ireland The men to whom I refer are John Boyle OReilly A J Ht Duganhe Theodore OHara Charles G Hslpine sad Father Ryan tile poet pde of the South The words that flowed from lie hearts of these men through the tips of their pens have illumined page upon page In American life that shine as brightly as the brightest among them all I shall leave that however to another time and directing your attention to one more dutyfor it seems to me to be a duty will detain you no longer We have been regarded as light hearted as frivolous as jolly and as goodnatured people because we have permitted misrepresentation of the Irish character on printed page as well as on the mimic stage and hereafter every person in whose veins flows a drop of wish blood should refuse to patronize the stage on which the Irish character is represented in other than a dignified and respectful manner Bear in mind that we are judged according to our acts that the estimate which we ourselves place upon our actions will not be en hanced or added to by others and if we frown down attempts to belittle the Irish character no one will attempt to belittle it in future PRETTY

Fleischer formerly of the St Nicholas Hotel has assumed control of Kenwood where he had a big yesterday Under his popular pretty park should become more than ever as no one knows better how to couduct such n place than its new owner FASHIONS FOIBLES Evening gowns for young married women are cut very low back and front and deficiencies are supplied with a drapery of tulle Ruches of various kinds are decidedly the mode for trimming the new thin gowns and are made of narrow gauze ribbon mousseline chiffon and tulle Among the new materials which are coming in the market is something called burlap in a light gray It resembles can vas and to have any style must be tailor madeThe fashion for dressing the hair low on the nape of the neck is growing iu fame and the front hair slightly waved is partedeither in the center or a little to one side A novel feature of trimming the lates gowns is a twine colored net spottedwith black dots Edged with lace matching the net it covers the entire circular flounce in a pale blue linen Lace inser tion heads this flounce and the jaunty little bolero is also covered with the net aud finished with the edging Black and white effects in dress are dominant this season and if you want the latest touch on your black or white gown use a bit of bright red in some way possibly one or two narrow bands on the collar a rosette of red chiffon at one side of the gust or tiny little bands of red velvet with gold buttons at the ends Ar ranged in some way on the bodice Ostrich feathers promise to be very conspicuous in millinery next autumn and birds plumage of all sorts dyed in all sorts of colors is being made up into breasts wings and birds as real as the genuine songsters for winter hat orna ments Seagulls and pigeons are very much used now in hats for seaside wear the former dyed in hues never seen in the gull family before One of the special advantages of the present fashion for thin materials is found in its effects on summer mourning which is more pleasing to look upon and more agreeable to wear than ever before With the nets chiffons veilings China silks and crepes de chine in black there is no need to burden ones self with heavy fab rics Mourning taffetas and muslins are also very much worn Summer fashions have reached the crest of the wave and Mme La Mode has apparently gone into a trance from which she will presently send forth medI- umistic prophecy as to autumn and win ter styles As yet however there are few shadows of coming events and even the New York dressmakers will not turn their faces toward their Parisian Mecca until a few weeks later The fichus the elbow sleeves finished with flowing ruffles the pompadour bou quets the Louis XVI coats and the broad flat hats will undoubtedly stay with us through the winter but the longpointed bodice the panniers and the full skirts are gaining little hold in spite of the efforts of some famous dressmakers to push them The French rebelled against the long point of the bodice long before the Americans did and the mode was never carried so far in Paris as in New YorkThere is a slight dip toward the front in the waist line bodice trimming of Parisian gowns but nothing extreme and the woman who fondly imagines she Is achieving swellness by running her waist line down to an exaggerated point in front is sadly mistaken The straight front corset makes a Iqng waist front possible but the Parisian dressmaker achieves her dip line by shortening the waistline a trifle in the back and length ing it only a trifle in front instead of eliminating the abdomen
