marls Capital City in 1801 Recalled A Period of Sadness Deportn tion and Exile For the Irish People Catholics and Nationals Unite to Battle For Redress and Resist Oppression HISTORIC PERSONS AND THEIR WORK A glance at the files of the Dublin Freemans Journal for the last days of December 1851 reveals the fact that things were dull enough in that city this time fifty years ago Ireland had not yet begun to recover from the effects of the dread famine years and the failure of 48 still weighed dismally on the National spirits The heroic and intel lectual band of young men who had for a little while stirred the embers of Nationality to living flame was broken upsome like the best of them all Thomas Daviswere dead while most of the rest of the leaders had either been transported or gone Into exile Ireland was indeed a little better than a corpse on the dissecting table as Gavan Duffy styled her when he too gave np hope and sailed for Australia four years later The apathetic condition of the country was naturally enough manifest in the capital also and although the conventional round of amusements that is part of the life of all great cities never ceased the majority of the citizens somehow took their pleasures sadly enough The castle and garrison sets of course having a life apart altogether from the majority of the people enjoyed themselver to the top of their bent just as if they were residing in the gay capital of a prosperous nation instead of in that ofa country that seemed going steadily and surely down into the abyss of national ruin and de cay Fortunately this castrophe did not overtake the old land which thank heaven has marvelous powers of recup eration but to the people of halfa century agothe fnture scemed Eo hold no promise of anything save disaster for themselves and the country The Celts seemed to the Times to be gone with a vengeanceand in truth was the fact but the remnant left in Ireland however was sufficiently visible as events have amply proved to hold the country for the Celtic race and to give the smug Saxon who fondly thought that 48 had settled everything satis fatorily for him no end of trouble a state of affairs which shows no signs of waning at the present time but on the contrary shows every sympton of grow ing stronger and more menacing to Eng lisp rule as the years roll on- 7he principal political topic dealt with in the issue of the Freeman for Decem ber 291851was the resignation or ex pulsion of Lord Palmerston from the Foreign Office an event which caused a big sensation all over Europe and was heard of with gratification in Irish Cath olic and Nationalist circles to whom the noble lords policy was peculiarly dis tasteful The same issue also contains a notice of the coming inauguration in January of the new Catholic Lord Mayor Mr John Darcy who succeeded the Right Hon Benjamin Lee Guinness as Chief Magistrate of the city There is also a paragraph announcing the ap proaching retirement of the lIon David Plunket from the office of Master of the Court of Common Pleas An interesting account of a stag hunt of an unusually exciting character which took place on December 27 is also recorded The Ward Hunt melon this date at Clonee at which place a magnificent stag was unearthed who after surveying the lie of the country went off in the direction of the Ash boUrne road followed in the regulation time by the pack of hounds and the hunting party The noble quarry crossed and recrossed the road several times and then made for Finglas passing through some demesnes en route He then crossed the Tolka and made straight for the city evidently having faith in the safe security of the streets II His pursuers grew gradually less and he took his swift career down the North Cir cular Road unharassed by hounds or men finally taking refuge in the classic thoroughfare which stilt rejoices in the name of Stoneybatter It must have been rather an unusual ending for a stag hunt even in days when they were held in such close proximity to the city In the matter of public entertain ments we find In the amusements col umn announcements of Grand Christ mas Pantomimes at both the Theater Royal and the Queens Royal Theater At the firmer the pantomime was en titled Bluff King Hal or Harlequin and the Charmed Arrow preceded by the comedy Love in a Maze while at the Queens a melodrama entitled Hoper was announced followed by the pantomime Harlequin and Sir I John Falstaff and the Merry Wives of Windsor Jn the Issue forDecember 31 the principal lopicdeaU with at length editorially is concerned with a charge of proselytism under instigation at the North Dublin UnKHJt a Protestant clergy ok n manthe Rev Mr Saunders having been discovered interfering with the re ligious beliefs of some of the Catholic inmates and a somewhat similar case which occurred in the Tuam Workhouse had been dealt with in the Freeman a few days previously and a long Ameri can letter is also contained in this issue which deals entirely with the reception of Lord Kossuth the Hungarian patriot In the United States A great number of the Irish in America at the time refused to take any part in welcoming Kossuth on account of his having made laudatory references to Englands sense of right and justice which indeed those Irish exiles then as now had little reason to have any faith in Some patriotic Irish men hQwever like Michael Dohcny and John Blake Dillonsaw in Kossuth only the rebel against foreign tyranny in his own land and took part in publicly acclaiming one who like themselves was a refugee Amongst the principal news items is the announcement of the appointment of Dr MDonnell S F T C D as Provost of Dublin University During the year 1851 the Repeal As sociation which had for some time been carried on as the Catholic and Repeal Association adjourned its meeting sine die in the month of March In the month of August the Catholic Defense Association was formed al a great meeting in the Rotunda held to protest against the new Ecclesiastical Titles Bill which was rightly regarded as a violation of the Catholic Relief Act of 1829 The first meeting of the new As sociation was held In the Mechanics In stitute on October 17 At the census population females 137628 total 254850 being an increase of 22124 on the census of 1841 During this year also the Midland Great Western

1902 BE TRUE TO YOUR FAITH Why is it that so many Catholics while not actually ashamed of their religion by their actions show sa preference for everything non Catholic and seem to think no good can old church butcome out of the that new ideas and modern upto date progressiyeness can be found only outside of the pale of the true church This tendency is growing and if continued may in time per meate the whole body of Catholic laymen It was along these lines and to discredit this idea that the brilliant lecture delivered by that gifted ora tor Henry Austin Adams last week before the Knightsof Columbus was given It was shown here clearly that Catholic supremacy was para mount in every art and science and that all the important advances made were the results of ideas first conceived by Catholics Newspaper men editors of Cath olic periodicals are here meant allover the country say without exception that the support given them iis miserable This is true The same might be said of anything else with a strictly Catholic flavor Our academies and universities are not patronized as they should be but the girls and boys are sent off to a finishing school or one of the nonCatholiccottegespossibly even one where the existence of Christ is denied There are many good schools not ofour faith and nothing derogatory is intended but the argument Is that Catholics should give the preference to Cath olic things other conditions being equal A very well educated priest one high in his order and an authority on literature in deploring the sup port given Catholic periodicals said many people insisted that the price was too high But he claimed if the proper support was given and the circulation as large cs others of its class the price could be made lower though even then quality considered it was no higher Let us be proud of our faith and while it is not necessary to flaunt it in the face of our neighbor if we live up to its precepts and uphold its works the church will command more and more respect in this world and be instrumental iu the salvation of many PASS THE BILL The usual bill for a new State Capitol is before the Legislature as it has been for forty years Noth ing but the desire of legislators to make a record by catering to the stingy and old fogy notions of their constituents has deferred it thus long The Capitol and Governors mansion are not only inadequate but dilapidated and a reproach to the State This and much more and worse has been repeated for years without effect so deeply has Kentucky run into the rut It is high time the Old Commonwealth was pulled out and lifted on to the roadof progress and no better be ginning could be made than provid ing decent suitable buildings for State officials State documents and operty and the convenient trans n of State business This Leg Ire has not yet shown its er but we hope it is not nother of the thirtycent kind of which Old Kentucky has hada surfeit HARHONY AND UNITY

personal contention wrangling and probable dissolution of the organization that came via London previous to the meeting JOLLYING THE BOYS A thrill of hope pervaded Eng land for a short period Wednesday over a report that King Edward had announced that the Boer war would soon end thus verifying the prediction of the War Office The basis of the report is however dis couraging Another draft of 1200 men from the Grenadiers Cold stream and Scots Guards of the already depleted home reserve corps left for South Africa on Thurs day In addressing the officers on Wednesday the King said the war may be regarded as approaching its conclusion As reinforcements are so badly needed in South Africa that these men had to be detached from three different regiments on home duty the conclusion is at least not imminent and his Majesty was simply jollying the boys along A SUGARCOATED PILL An issue which is likely to cause a serious division in the British Cabinet as well as in political parties is being pushed to the fore It is the sugar trade in which millions of British capital are invested on the one hand and the supply and price of sugar to the people is involved on the other and the whole question bases on the continuation of free trade or the departure from this British trade policy Great Britain is the free trade mecca of the world all products and manufactures being ad mitted free of duty or under revenue tax the protection idea being wholly opposed Sugar is the principal product of the British West Indies Owing to the competition of Dutch German and American sugar the West In dies sugar has only the British market and there the foreign sugar is driving it out by reason of lower prices and better quality It is claimed that the Dutch and Ger man sugar is sold cheaper because of the bounty paid by the Govern ment and the American sugar be cause protected from such bounty competition by a countervailing duty on Dutch and German sugar The result is that the American Dutch and German sugars retain their home markets and practically divide all foreign markets leaving the West Indies sugar without any marketThe West Indies sugar growers British West Indies islands have petitioned the British Cabinet for the like protection of a coUnter- vailing duty on foreign sugars that they may be able to compete and retain at least the British market that unless this is granted the West Indies sugar industry will be hope lowly bankrupted Colonial Secre ttry Chamberlain favors and will urge the granting of the petition I but itis believed that the Cabinet willrefuse or adopt it by so close a vote as to cause a division with serious consequences that may tend to revolutionize British trade All branches of British commerce and industry arc hampered and de pressed by foreign competition the world over and in their home mar ket and the grantingof the peti tion of the sugar industry for a pro tective tariff to minimize or obviate foreign competition will prompt all others to demand the same protec tion If the West Indies are given special relief other colonies will in sist upon their varied claims and Great Britain be transformed from a free trade to a protective tariff basis that by reason of the extreme change of trade basis may cause serious complications and disas trous results to British commercial and industrial interests all of great Britains competitors having the advantage established trade basis and likely to retaliate with counter vailing duties against British prod uctsThe issue is the most important and farreaching that has yet arisen in the sea of trouble that seems to overspread Great Britain and as ortgospel basis of traffic with the Eng lish any attempt to abridge or depart from it is likely to cause bit ter and general discontent and dis sension that will put all political parties at loggerheads in a chaos of confusion KITCHENERS FREEBOOTERS Lord Kitchener Commanderin Chief in South Africa has not for months reported a British suc cess Aside from the occasional British reverse he furnishes weekly reports of murders of natives brutality to prisoners and the like by the Boers doubt less with the purpose of showing some justification for British meth ods under his directionthe con centration camps destruction of private property imprisonment deportation and execution of non combatants as well as prisoners of war But the truth leaks out de spite censorship and the following from a Cape Town correspondent of the New York World gives some idea of the character of the volun teers and loyal colonists in the British service and their methods of warfare in South Africa Such outlawry and vandalism is in viola tion of the articles of war and if the Boers capture such marauders they are fully justified in summarily executing them although they wear the British uniform and are commissioned by the British War Office The correspondent says The little band of troopers fighting for England in the Transvaal and known as Loxtons Horse is uptly called The Forty Thieves by friend and foe Lox tons aggregation is probably the most peculiar element to the army in South Africa Englands war office furnishes the equipment of the troopers which includes two horses full uniform rifle and ammunition but that is all No one officer or man in Loxtons Horse draws a cent of pay from the British war funds In lieu of pay the corps gets 75 per cent of the loot and if what vas seen in June in Newcastle was any criterion it is a very well paid arm of the serviceThere was thena division of the proceeds of their joint earnings for three months and each mans share amounted to a little more than 4600 The corps gave a ball in the town han to provide amusement for itself and its friends and the 100 men then comprising the coin mand spent 5000 in this entertainment Nothing was safe from the rapacity of this gay gang and anything of com mercial value whether it belonged to friend pr foe was always brought to headquarters Sometimes the owner could recover his property if he could show conclusively his loyalty but gen erally the animals or goods were sent to Durban or Pietermaritzburg and sold Loxtons Horse well earned the nick name The Forty Thieves Troubles never come singly London and English cities and towns are now wrestling with smallpox which threatens lobe come epidemic or at least cause a scare and quarantine to the detri ment of travel and traffic at English ports The Health Board re ports 900 cases in London and fear that it will spread with the breakup of winter unless previously eradi cated by stringent regulations and vaccination for which alas British cities and towns seem to be illy provided none of them having ample hospitals for isolation andIiIi n I enforcingII i sanitation and vaccination andt most of them having no provision reportedIintowns the fear of an epidemic in the early spring appears to be well founded The II AngloAmerican alliance It so prominent a subject a year ago and occasionally mooted yet is re called by the following emphatic language of Hon Lawrence Town send American Minister to Bel gium in answer to a query at a banquet in Antwerp last week IIIn regard to the so catted Anglo American alliance which seems to be the creation of an imaginative brain I may call your attention to the fact that the policy of the United States as promulgated by President Washington and repro claimed by every American states man since his time precludes the possibility or the existence of an alliance either formal or informal between the United States and any foreign power The biennial pilgrimage to Frankfort is on in full force to plead their Varied causes with the Legislature The workingmen as usual are in the push with delegations from Louisville Central Labor Union and the coal miners There is much needed in legislation for labor in this State for which the working men have pleaded for years without success It is time they were get ting something more than ante election promises which they have come to regard as of the gold brick order The Legislature will have ample time to take up con sider and act upon all labor matters presented and will have no excuse for failure to do so Senator Depew during his brief wedding tour in Europe kept his eyes open noting conditions He reports commercial and industrial affairs as deplorable in Germany over 500000 workers being idle In England matters are but little better there being general discon tent over the war in Africa with the prospect of a split up of political parties during the session of Parliament He regards France Austria and Itally as being in bet ter condition than for years with prospects of improvement We have always believed that if Kitchener were given time and op portunity he would achieve some grand victory meriting the peerage and fame Last week he reported the capture of a cattle laager guarded by 150 Boer women with out firing a shot or losing a man Now let him be recalled received with booming of cannon and royal honors made an Earl and retired on 50000 a year It is noticeable that while the European powers are scowling at one another all are throwing bou quets at Uncle Sam The old fel low however is not easily flat tered He treats all courteously and will let them fight out their squabbles only insisting that they keep off his grass Two rumors have set London agog One is that Kitchener has started a rush campaign that will shortly result in the capture of the foxy Dewet The other is that peace negotiations have been resumed by the British and Boer offi cials These rumors are not con firmed England Wil probably be forced to resort to nscription for the army in South Africa as the call for volunteers has met with no re sponse except he flat refusal of the volunteer regit ents at home to go andthere are no individual enlist ments DOMINICAN CHURCH IMPROVEMENTS rThe interior of the

of the Trade at Homo and Abroad WORTH AND INTEGRITY RECOGNIZED The annual meeting of the Louisville Leaf Tobacco Exchange was held Mou day and the result was most gratifying to the hosts of friends of Mr Edward J OBrien leading member of the great toe bacco brokerage firm of E J ODnen Co Twentynine years ago when a small boy he accepted a minor position with the firm of C A Bridges Co with whom he remained for ten years aud nine months by whom he was rap idly promoted in recognition of his hon esty and integrity Progressive and energetic his next step was to engage in business for himself doing stripping and redrying until about twelve years ago when the present firm was formed and has since enjoyed perhaps the largest and most successful brokerage business done in this market I The meeting was for the annual elec tion of officers and took place at the Tobacco Exchange Hall on Main street the entire trade being fully represented Edward J OBrien was elected President by unanimous vote of the members Messrs Samuel Stone and Casselbury Dunkerson withdrawing in his favor This is the highest honor within the gift of the Louisville Leaf Tobacco Ex change Louisville is recognized as the largest leaf tobacco market in the world and now that he is President it means that Mr OBrien stands at the head of the worlds tobacco trade I Edward J OBrien was one of the I organizers of the Exchange which by happy coincidence made him the sucaII cessor of his first employer Mr Charles A Bridges During his connection therewith j he has always taken that live and deep interest in its affairs which has I characterized his every walk in life serve j ing with signal success on the executive I reclamation quotation and other come I prosperIousand any attempts by other cities to supplant I Louisville will prove futile His I firm ranks next to the American Tobacco Company and the Continental Tobacco I Company as the largest buyer in the United States Known to the trade at I home and abroad never a day passes I without cablegrams being received con cerning the exportation of tobacco I Now turning forty years capable enerJt getic industrious and careful none are surprised that Mr OBrien was thus I I highly honored by his colleagues in the I tobacco trade and none offer him heartier j congratulations than the Kentucky Irish M American Besides his active business career he has devoted much time and I means to works of charity and to the l H1IsConference of the St Vincent de Paul Society and prominent also in the Genera J Conference which usually meets atII the Cathedral To his great executive I ability is due much of the success of the two bazarsheld for the Catholic Sisters I over both of which he officiated as Chair j man the last one held at Liederkranz I Hall being the most successful ever held I In Louisville the sum of f19600 being netted in the six nights I Like all Irishmen Mr OBrien takes much interest in the political affairs ofI our city and as Chairman of the Campaign Committee from the Eleventh i ward rendered valuable services during the last fall campaign forming a perfect organization and making many votes for the ticket headed by Mayor Grainger His life has been honorable and upright ind furnishes an example for all young men to follow CATHOLIC TRUSTEES During the past year great progress haS been made by the congregation of

MAY LIVE TO BE 100 Is the Opinion of Pope Leos Physician After Vis- Iting Him Dr Lnpponi the Popes physician said of the health of Pope Leo whom he vise ited on Friday night January 10 after an absence of three days For years the Pope has not enjoyed such perfect health He never fails to fast on Friday aud sometimes on other days The principal precaution I insist upon is keeping his rooms at an even temperature of 66 especially as he iis most careless i about himself He fre quently retires without properly adjust ing his flannels about his chest When I remonstrate he says he does not want to coddle himsel- fWhenasked if the Pope should re main as strongas at present how long he would live Dr Lapponi answered- I do not care to speculate on that question but thereis no reason why he should not reach the age of Gregory IX who was a centenarian This would mean eight years more of life which would make Leos pontificate longer than that of St Peter and even longer than that of Pius IX who reigned thirtyone year- sDEFIED COLOR LINE How Archblshop Keane Over came Racial proJu dice Father OCallaghan the Paulist tells the following story illustrating the fear lessness of Archbishop Keane of Du buque Oue Sunday when the Arch bishop was Bishop of Richmond Va he ascended the pulpit and announced that on the following Sunday afternoon there would be a meeting of all colored people of Richmond in the Cathedral The then Bishop stated further that he de sired all the colored people irrespective of religious belief to come to the meet Ing and that he hoped that no white persons would1 be present The an nouncement caused consternation in the church Racial hatred was as strong then as now in the South and the white members of the congregation protested vigorously against tie insult of having niggers occupying their pews Their objections were in vain Bishop Keane like the apostles of old recognized not the color of n mans skin but was con cernedabout the salvation of souls Accordingly when the meeting was opened on Sunday the Catholic Catherl ral of Richmond was crowdedwith colored persons Every negro in the town became interested and lent his sup port by being present Bishop Keane addressed the negroes and on each Sunday succeeding he held meetings for the exclusive benefit of the colored popula tion The result was that at the close of a series of weekly lectures lasting a year the Bishop bad made 600 converts RECENT DEATHS The funeral of Mrs Mary Bowman took place last Sunday morning at St Cecilias church and the sincere sorrow felt over the ending of her young life was attested by the large attendance at the solemn services She was the wife orf John Bowman 2136 Cleveland avenue and was but twenty years old Mr James B Cooney died at his home 2107 High

resident of this city and always active in Irish patriotic and charitable organizations where his kindly nature von many friends who will mourn his death The funeral was from St Patricks church of which con gregatlon he was one of the pioneers of whom but few now remain The many friends in this city and else where of Mrs Catherine Kinsella Smith were deeply pained to hear of her death which occurred last Sunday night at her residence 2011 Bank street Mrs Smith was born November 10 1844 in the parish of Oraguemanna County Kil kenny Ireland but came to this country when a young girl She came of a prom- Inent family her father being a noted Irish civil engineer and her brother William Kinsella was for many years thE leading civil engineer at Cincinnati First coming to Philadelphia and then to Cincinnati Mrs Smith was wedded to Edward Smith who departed this life some years since Thirtythree years ago they moved to Louisville where the de ceased became widely known and respected For some time preceeding her demise she had lot been feeling entirely well but on Fri lay she was seized with a fatal attack thd succumbed Sunday evening The embers of her family were all in at ndance at

Government Return of Irish Nationalists to Westminster Dreaded by English Must Grin and Bear Von Due lows Biting Rebuke to Chamberlain REDMOND AGAIN CHOSEN CHAIRMAN As Parliament will open on Thursday the politicians are already gathering in London and the air is thick with party rumors cables the New York Worlds special London correspondent Accord ing to one report the Salisbury Government will invite defeat on the telephone scandal as a convenient method of wash ing its hands of the war and its conse quences According to another story it is tacitly understood between King Ed ward and Lord Salisbury thatif the war is not finished by the date set for the coronation the Marquis of Salisbury will resign whereupon the King will commis sion the Earl of Rosebery to form an ad ministration chiefly of LiberalImperial ists together with the Duke of Devon shire and the Marquis of Lansdowne to bring the war to an end and that if this Ministry is defeated by the Tory ma jority in the House Of Commons the King will dissolve Parliament This would be daring interference by the King in party politics but if the war is still going on in June the position will be desperate enough to warrant any expedient The return of the Irish party to West minster in view of Chief Secretary Wyndhams revival of coercion is looked forward to with decided apprehension The Irish party is the only political party now perfectly united John Redmond who was elected Chairman last year as a measure of expediency has been re elected this year with every evidence of sincere enthusiasm The coercion prose cutions seem to have supplied that touch of fire to the party which has revived the old fierce fighting spirit Not that the Irish members contemplate anything in the nature of scenes or disturbances in Parliament On the contrary their policy will be oue of quiet vigilance and activity which experience has shown them to be the most effective for their purpose Wyndham is being urgently pressed to proclaim the United Irish League an illegal combination thus transforming its 200000 members into criminals But Wyndham does not hanker after trouble of that kind and the Government policy is to minimize the Irish trouble until the South African republics are conquered No one knows absolutely yet whether Col Arthur Lynch intends to venture to take his seat for Galway or not The authorities assert that be will be prose cuted for treason felqny if he sets foot here and in the present state of feeling it would need very little evidence to convince an English jury that any Irishman of Nationalist politics deserves penal servitude for life Imperial German Chancellor Von Bue lows stinging rebuke of Colonial Secre tary Chamberlain for the aspersion the latter cast on the German army has created the bitterest resentment here But with her army marooned in South Africa England has to grin and bear such humiliation Rarely has a Minister been placed in such a contemptible posi tion as Chamberlain is now in yet although his colleagues are fully conscious of his perilous methods they fear him personally He will tolerate no Interference and is firmly convinced that the hatred he excites abroad isa tribute to his greatness It is now believed that King Edward will find some excuse for not sending the Prince of Wales to con gratulate the Kaiser on his birthday The German official statement that the Prince was not invited by the Kaiser until the King suggested it was suffi ciently galling but the Chancellors castigation of the most prominent British Minister renders the visit impracticable THE POPES JUBILEE A movement for the fitting celebration of the pontifical silver jubilee of Pope Leo XIII which will take place this year is now on foot in all parts pf the world Elaborate preparations for the coming celebration are already making- in Europe and will soon be begun in this country Copies of the appeal issued have been received by Archbishop Corn Kan in
