Revival of the Oldest and Most t Important of Irelands t Industries u o Spinning Wheels Are Hum ming Again In flraiiya HomeII t pOoodsExportcd to the United = States Find Ready Sale I i CLOTH IS FASHIONABLE EVERY WHERE In the little thatched cottages of Done gal and Counemara looms andspinning wheels are busy manufacturing home spuns for royal wearers The Kings and Queens of Europe have decided that these manufactures are fit for court attire and the peasants of the North and West of Ireland are reaping a golden harvest Two years ago Queen Victoria ordered a large quantity of Irish homemade woolens This immediately created an outside Interest in the goods and a few weeks sufficed to set all the idle looms in motion Orders arc now being received from every city In Europe andseveral lots have been exported to the United States A large order recently came from Persia and even in Australia the homespun is not unknown The peas ants are rapidly becoming prosperous compared with their circumstances a few years ago The new market for their goods has claimed every yard they manu facture so that while royalty flaunts the homespun the cottiers are content with the cheapermiUarl cle For hundreds of years the peasantry of Ireland clothed themselves in garments of their own manufacture Less than fifty years ago no wedding was complete without a spinning wheel heading the o list of presents from the parents of the bride Even in poor ould Ireland however machinery has made such strides that had Queen Victoria delayed much longer in placing the first royal order for the homespun the sound of the loom would not now be heard in the land As it isold wheels are being tM lsdore ovatedifingersotbato11ad almost forgotten the duties required of them are being quickened again to work and young hands are rapidly becoming expert with practice Donegal is the center of the present activity in homespun circles and the cot tages along the mountain sides are filled with the hum of busy workers The entire family spend the winter months at reel wheel and loom When the days lengthen and the sun grows more genial work on the little patch of ground neces U sitates a decrease in their production Potatoes must be planted a few cabbage plants djbbled in the ridges and a rood or two of oats trenched Then follows the haymaking season with its delight ful weather and cloudless sky No mat ter how many orders royalty may send for homespun these hardy hill folks wilt take things aisy in summer days These simple peasantry live to please themselves and their pleasure is usually the fulfillment of a general desire to take their own time for doing things They like the sunshine and the growing mea dows the green pastures and the moss covered banks There is something in the white thorn that calls them to the hedgerow when it is white with blossoms and not for gold would they miss the small birds chorus Therefore It follows that the homespun harvest will be reaped only when the rain beats pitilessly on the roof and the wind moans and groans t in thewicker chimney A cottage owning a loom may always be known by its unusual length The loom fills one end of the cottage which Is only one story in height Additional floor space for spinning wheels makes a greatly increased frontage necessary This is done at the expense of proportion and gives the abode a squatty appearance that is deceiving The walls of the cot tages are whitewashed couple of times each year and are remarkable for their cleanlinessThe used in manufacturing the homespuns are amazingly crude in appearance They are very serviceable and enduring in spite of their lack of finlshworkmanship Looms are handed down fro oae generation to another and the secret of the age of most of the spin ning wheels belongs to the workers of another time All the machines are per meated with the odor of turf smoke and the natural color of the wood used in their construction has long since been dyed bkck by the burnt peat Jtiis astonishing with what accuracy these century old machines operate Ono one of these old looms was woven the Irish Hun presented to Queen Victoria It

manufactured near Belfast but the cottage looms have long since been ousted by the big factories employing thousands of men and women Most of the home puns are sold to the merchants of Jbe very small villages dot ting the country They are then purchased in bulk by the big retailer who receives orders from all parts of the world At present an attempt is being made to deal directly with the people

Odd Fellows Make Amende Honorable to Catholics An apology from the Odd Fellows of the city was read from the pulpits of all the Catholic churches of Covington on last Sunday says the Catholic Telegraph The circumstances of the apology were as follows Eight years ago Odd Fellows Hall which up to that time had been rented occasionally by the various Catholic churches and societies for social func tions was the scene of a violent malicious and false attack upon the church by the notorious exPriest Kolin The parishes of the city were advised by Very Rev Ferdinand Brossart V G to re frain from using the tall thereafter and have never used it since As the rental obtained from Catholics before the above mentioned incident had been considerable the Odd Fellows two weeks ago asked Father Bossart why the Catholics had not been renting the hall as was their wont plainlyIthe outcome After expressing regret over the occurrence the resolutions adopted say We hereby desire to express to the

the Recent Federation Convention Greatest Assemblage of Catholics Ever Seen In This Country I Love of Church and Country the Two Leading Principles AN IMPORTANT FACTOR IN HISTORY 4k i f A representative of the Kentucky Irish American called upon Dr J W Fowler who so ably represented the Catholics of Kentucky in the Catholic Federation convention which last week met in Cin cinnatiand requested him to relate the part he toqk in the proreedings and his impressions of the convention and its work Dr Fowler said III am very partial to the Kentucky Irish American and would if I possessed the power tell you all I saw and know of what is regarded by leading Catholices both clerical and lay to be the greatest Catholic convention that ever assembled In the United States but it would be im possible for me to tell you what trans pired in this big four days session convention which from the hour it started until it closed worked night and day to such an extent that its members were physically worn out The convention was a delegated body representing all portions of our American possessions and was called for the pur poseof federating if possible the Catho lic societies of America Hon Edward J McDermott and myself were elected by the Catholic Union of Kentucky as its representatives in the convention with full power to act On account of the ill ness of my colleagues wife he was un able to attend and therefore I was compelled to stand alone in advocating such measures as I thought our section of the country desired and where I failed in my efforts I feel that it was because I bad not the aid of my distinguished fellow delegate I reached the convention hall just as the first session was called to order It was truly an Inspiring sight and made an impression on me which will fade only with death The convention was held In the Auditorium a small but elegant theater which was gayly draped with American flags and bunting and the effect was one of brilliancy and patriotism In the center of the stage was a large portrait of our Holy Father Pope Leo XIII and one ofour President Theodore Roosevelt hooked together by festoons of American flags On the stage occupying the center stood the tempo rary President Henry Fries of Erie Pa Around and about him sat His Grace Archbishop Elder of Cincinnati Gov Nash of Ohio Mayor Fleischman of Cincinnati Right Rev

brilliant speeches from both priest and layman A cold blooded delegate from the Far East charged the gentleman from Ken tucky as speaking only jjx m a senti mental or chivalrous standpoint My reply was that chivalry to a certain extent might be the impelling motive but that I had spoken from a sense of justice that our Kentucky Union admitted women to its membership and that I as its delegate could not do otherwise than contend for them At thl3 point a fine looking goodnatured German delegate got the floor and declared here was an old German proverb which said Leave your wife at home and

The Secretary announced front the stage that it was the wish of Right JReV Bishop Mc Paul that Chicago be selecte4Bs the next place of meeting There Ivere cries from all over the house tawittidraw Louisville and countercries Jtot to withdraw that Louisville woBldkwin but recpgaizibgi that the distinguished divine was the guiding spirit of the federation idea and purely out of respect to his wishes I made a speech withdrawing Louisville and moved that Chicago be unanimously chosenAside from personalties the work of the convention was complete and harmonious federating upon lines accept able to all The plan which finally prevailed was the State Federation plan each county in the State to organize and send delegates as provided in the constitution which the Press Committee will soon issue to a State convention which will meet annually and the State convention to send delegates to the national convention which also con venes once a year the next meeting to beheld on July 16 1002 in Chicago My impression of the convention as a whole is one of respect and admiration The members were earnest and sincere many of them fine thinkers and eloquent speakers and all of them seemed to be Imbued with but two leading principles namely love of Catholic faith and love of the Republic of the United States God and Country wsathe motto and all else faded into insig nificance There were many dramatic scenes in the convention which I am powerless to portray but I firmly be lieve that the American Federation of Catholic Societies so compactly united upon a platform of equal rights to all will live in history as the most im portant factor outside the church itself for the common weal of all American citizens p b FATHER CRONIN Popular Priest Placod1 n Tem porary Charge of St

the ruinous policy and benefit by shifting the losses on the ally The blame for Great Britains troubles is charged to the United States or Germany whose pretensions and activity have blocked British territorial policy and curtailed British trade Which of them should be opposed which sought as an nth and how to hamper the progress of either is the question on which British opinion is divided and at times antagonistic Thus the London Saturday Re view is openly antiAmerican and proGerman advocating British German alliance to check the pre tensions and growth of the United States territorially and commer cially cites the efforts of Germany to found colonies nnd establish truck in South America and the compe tition and probable resistance of the United States against an infringe merit on the Monroe doctrine which Germany can not overcome without British aid It disclaims favoring an alliance with Germany against the United States astiU less one with the United States against Ger many but wants to hold the balance of power in such a conflict with the advantage of a friendly Germany lest Germanys defeat in the intended South American coloniza tion result in the unbridled preten sinus of the United States elbowing Great Britain out of her possessions in North and South America The concession by Great Britain to the United States of everything in Nic aragua is condemned and ridiculed The London Spectator takes an ultra reverse position as to Ger many declaring that a German alliance is the least stable ground on which to base a foreign policy reviews Germanys colonial and trade expansion in opposition to Great Britain condemns the anti British sentiment and agitation in Germany and declares it is impossi ble for Great Britain to expect friendliness from Germany con eluding with advocating more friendly and closer relations with Russia to head off and circumvent Germanysaspirations and schemes These are only samples of British opinion from two prominent papers the press leaders in politics and trade varying from one to the other extreme resulting on the whole in a jargon of conflicting opinions and bewildering discussion from which it is difficult to form a judgment as to what is the senti ment or future policy but showing plainly the desperate conditiop of matters that seem to have banished reason and discretion so essential to remedying evils checking misfor

noted for energy thrift industry order cleanly homes well stocked farms pioneer who developed prosperous farming mining and commerce from a wilderness and remarkable for their strength endurance and longevity None of these characteristics indi sate a people whose women are so filthy in their habits as to produce diseases with a death rate of 253 an epidemic rate that would have long ago

day niul Elected Their Officers Major Ouiithor Made Chief e01 Police mill Pat Ridge Assistant Believed That the Changes Cot tcmplatcd Are Not Many CLARENCE PARSONS WAS REMOVED The two new executive boards met Wednesday at noon and were sworn i in by Mayor Grainger after Which they got down to work and effected their organization as follows Board of Safety Harry Brennai Chairman Edward T Tierney and R Lee Suter John H Shea who filled the office of Secretary for the retiring boar was reelected to that position Board of WorksCapt John H We ler Chairman John W Vreeland and John H Ihelps Roger McGrath who for the past four years has been employed in the office of the board was elected Secretary the most popular selection that could have been made The Board of Safety reelected Co Sebastian Guuther Chief of Police and Major Patrick Ridge was reelected Assistant Chief This action of the board meets with the hearty approval of the general public Both men have been long identified with the Louisville police force and have made excellent record They have the confidence and respect of the men under them and we feel safe iiin saying that the high personal and standing of the force is assured while these experienced officers remain at its head Immediately following their organization the members of the Board of Works removed Clarence Parsons who has been resorting to rather peculiar methods tto hold the position of City Engineer Not satisfied with having served the term for which he had been appointed he conspired with the retiring members to perpetuate himself in office under an admit Istration to which he was hostile but the new board very properly exercised the prerogative of selecting its own employe The board named Joshua Breed to succeed Parsons who now threatens to appeal to the courts though City Atto aey Stone and other able lawyers declare his claims are illegal Mr Breed gave bond and at once entered upon the dis Large of the duties of the office He iiis regardedas an engineer of more than ordinary ability having been in that department for twenty years durin twelve of which he was assistant chief Mayor Grainger and the members of the boards will hold conferences between sow and January 1 when the list of promotions and changes will be given careful consideration The consensus of pinion is that the number of change will be small and this assurance will result in giving peace of mind to man luring this happy holiday season While it is true that he was not the choice of all for the nomination thos vho opposed him in the primary labore hardest for his election and because of this he has given assurances that only necessary changes will be approved by tim This generous action will go far oward making his administration popular and cementing all Democrats of the city into a solid phalanx It is now believed that no furthe appointments will be announced befor anuary 1 THEATRICALS The airy fairy tinsellike form of musement
