Macauleys Theater Packed From Pit to Dome With Descendants of theL Emerald IsleMayor Charles Grainger and Hon Matt ODoherty Given Grand Ovation Jeffersonvllle Hibernians Celebrate the Feast of Irelands Glorious Apostle With Great Entertainment at Speiths Theater Music and Song and an Eloquent Discourse by Father Rock at New Albany The celebration in honor of St Patrick the apostle of Ireland at Macauleys Theater last Sunday night was charac terized by one of the largest public de monstrations of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and the IrishAmerican citi zens of Louisville known for years in this city The day was an ideal one for the event and the fact that it was a day of rest from labor and that Mayor Grain ger was to preside contributed largely to the increased number that filled every foot of available space in the theater Macauleys was brilliantly illuminated and every chair on the main floor and seat in the balcony was occupied the audience being in that happy mood which animates any scene Professor Scallys orchestra furnished a fine pro gramme of music in which Garry owen Wearing of the Green Kil larney and Rory OMore were prom inent numbers The stage was occupied by members of the County Board and prominent visiting Hibernians from Ohio and Indiana among them County President Daniel McCarthy of San dusky and Barney Coll exState Treas urer of Indiana and Jack Murphy of JeffersonvilleCounty Thomas Keenan called the meeting to order and intro duced Mayor Charles F Grainger as Chairman for the evening After the great outburst of applause that greeted the citys Chief Executive had subsided the Mayor said this is the day set apart by the Irish people the world over to do honor to the greatest Christian mission ary civilization has ever known He said men of all creeds honored St Patrick and it was with feelings of pleasure that he participated in the celebration Then turning to Hon Matt ODoherty the speaker of the evening Mayor Grainger introduced him as a gentleman than whemHoaeweseJjeUeequaUEsdto speak for the Emerald Isle and its glorious patron saint The applause that greeted Mr ODoherty was hearty and prolonged and his eloquent and able address which appears elsewhere was frequently inter rupted by applause Upon the conclusion of the address those upon the stage sang the Wearing of the Green with a vigor and spirit that was gratifying though its rendition would have been much more pleasing had there been a few rehearsals The musical and literary programme that followed though long and varied was of a very high order Each number was enthusiastically encored and the audience remained seated until the standard bearers Masters Barry and Edward Mee han who guarded the handsome silk flag of Division 4 had withdrawn Where all performed their parts so well it would be invidious to criticise As was to be expected James Cronen and Lieut Tom Fitzgibbons had captured the house before they warbled a note and both were recalled three times Messrs John Green and Edwin Sabree both possessing voices of extraordinary power and sweet tone received unstinted applause for both their duets and solos Syl Doyle who made his debutin public as a singer received a splendid ovation and his success while not unexpected must have delighted his large number of friends present The ladies who took part acquitted themslyes admirably and the audience manifested its appreciation by shower ing them with handsome floral bouquets Miss Julia Kelly the talented accompa nist sang in fine voice Colleen re sponding to the warm encore and being scarcely able to carry away the flowers with which the stage was strewn Mrs Will Meeban and Miss Josephine Hoertz both prominent in Louisvilles leading musical circles won the hearts of their hearers by their feeling rendition of the duet The Minstrel Boy Seldom has the sentiment and pathos of this grand Irish song been so well presented Miss Hoertz also sang Kathleen Mavorneen Miss Josephine Kelly sang splendidly The Exiles Lament and in response to the hearty encore by request The Holy City which was rendered with sweetness and power The recitation Will My Soul Pass Through Ireland afforded Miss Anna Clary an excellent opportunity to display her elecutionary power She held her audience spellbound from her first utterance and there- was great regret when she left the stage Miss Ida Senf sang songs pf an upto date character and her comedy added much to the amusement of the evening as did also the monologue talk of Dave Flynn The foregoing concluded the excellent programme when the immense audlencfc dispersed with words of high praise for the officers and members of the County Board of the Ancient Order of Hibernian for their patriotic and creditable celebration in honor of St Patrick Too much credit can not be given Messrs Thomas Keenan William- Meeban John Cavanaugh Thomas Dolan JeeMcOlgagreat aoeceas aachieved iin the twenty 0eveuth annual

Hibernian Dramatic Society under the auspices of Division I of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Everything was decorated for the occasion and green not only predominated in the decorations but also was the chosen color of the large majority of the vast audience Though flurries of snowtand biting winds that grew more keen as nightfall neared were disagreeable features those who pay homage to Irelands patron saint were not to be deterred by the weather conditions Like all affairs given by the Hibernians of our sister city Monday nights feast of song and story was an event long to be remembered by those who An j played sweet attendedttold scene when all seated was a worthy tribute to the green little isle and the saint whose memory was celebrated The young men who had the affair in charge deserve the highest praise for their splendid work They left nothing undone that would add to the social or financial success of the entertainment Members of the division were everywhere looking after the comfort and pleasure of their friends even Meeting those from Louisville at the train and escorting them to the theater The programme wasin two parts the first introducing Messrs Thomas Clines and Charles Parsons and Misses Mary Higgins and June Ijatnes in a really comical and mirth provoktng sketch en titled Two of aKi d Clines and Parsons as the two Pat es made the audi ence roar with laughter both being natural comedians jrfelatter paid his compliments to the Kentucky Irish America n ia ataanarthatiwasreceived everywhere with expressions of appreci ation Miss Higgins though suffering from a severe cold sang Come Back to Emwith pathos and feeling and was given an enthusiastic encore Miss Ijames as Su Brett performed her part well but old friend Patsy as presented by Tom Clines was the best feature pf the fine work done by the four The second part consisted of the two act comedy Robert McCair which was given a magnificent presentation by the Hibernian Dramatic Society com posed of leading young ladies and gentle men of Jefiersonville The company had been rehearsing the play under the di rection of Mr Henry Newman of Louisville and the proficiency of each was indeed gratifying The stage set tings were artistic and handsome the beautiful furnishings being very kindly loaned by Louis Saunders the well known furniture and carpet dealer Miss Carrie Lynch as Mark and Miss Grace Coyle as Clementine were up to the expectations of their friends who feel confident that they would reach the front rank were they to devote them selves to the stage The Robert McCair of Frank Hogan was a finished bit of acting and showed a comprehensive in terpretation of the character John Ken nedy scored another great success as did also John Devitt and Will Constantine Charles Tracy Frank Kennedy John Murphy Dan Gill Tom Horn George Kimmich and Mark Kissler were all good in their respective parts Misses Ella Cunningham Lizzie Coyle Mayme Noon Alice McCarthy and Mayme Young were an attractive bunch of village maid ens and added brilliancy to the wedding fete scene when Miss Kettie Barrett and James Curran danced oldfashioned Irish reels to the great delight of all especially those who spent their younger days in the Emerald Isle Miss Cecilia Martins vocal solo was charmingly rendered and evoked pro longed and enthusiastic applause Her number was pronounced the most artistic of the evening Messrs Edward Sabree and John Green sang several appropriate selections that were well received and Tom Clines by special request sang The Bridge of Sighs II The entire entertainment went off without a single hitch and was thoroughly enjoyed by all present and it is already assured that the next annual affair will be anx iously looked forward to The Hibernians of Jeffersonville have reason to congratulate themselves upon the success of their undertaking which equaled in every respect those of Louis ville Indianapolis or Cincinnati where there are many divisions Of the many celebratfohs held Monday in honor of Irelands patron saiat there was probably none that was more felicit ous than that which was held at Trinity Hall Monday evening b r Division

spktjoua at the ends were the rich and bandKHrie frf h set American banners r J t and flags of the division The hall was crowded to the doors and those who ar rived after 8 oclock were compelled to stand It was a great outpouring of peo pIe and gave splendid evidence of the popularity of the Ancient Order of Hiber nians County President Pat Kennedy Secretary James OHara President Dan Walsh John Winn and others looked after the visitors from Louisville and Jeffersonville of whom there were a large numberThe announcement that Rev Father Rock of the Cathedral in Louisville would deliver the address on St Patrick and Ireland was alone sufficient to fill ahy hall in the city as his reputation as an orator of the highest degree had long preceded his appearance there The assemblage was presided over by John A Cody who opened the meetings exer cises with a few appropriate remarks welcoming the audience and especially the clergy among whom we noticed Rev Fathers Walsh OSullivan and Rock of Louisville and Fathers Kelly Unterreitmeier and Kenney of New AlbanyThe prograonne included a vocal solo by Miss Margaret Kelly piano solo by William Powell songs by Misses Jennie byMissesson ballad by Louis Stein vocal solo by Miss Bee Mullarkey and a chorus by the junior boys of Trinity school Chairman Cody next introduced Rev Father Rock who delivered a most eloquent speech At times he was exceed ingly witty and humorous and had his hearers convulsed with laughter He recounted the history of St Patrick and Ireland declaring that as nations have no eternity there trust be for them a reward or a punishment so the Isle of Saints and Scholars must obtain after years of de fenseof her faith a reward of glorious liberty He dwelt at length upon the characteristics of the Irish race their love of justice and freedom for alt na tions their glorious past and what had been done by Irishmen for true Chris tianity in every clinic since the days of glorious St Patrick Father Rock devoted some time to the discussion of the soulinspiring music of Ireland which still stands unrivaled and urged upon his hearers the advantages of its study in preference to the ragtime stuff of the present day He mentioned several of the famous Irish songs and ballads and lamented that they were not to be found on the programmes of that grandest of Irish organizations the Ancient Order of Hibernians when lion oring the patron saint of their order and of Ireland His remarks were given close attention and made a lasting im pression on the minds of his hearers The division in New Albany numbers among Its members nearly every Irish man in the city and is now recognized as the strongest in the State of Indiana Its members nearly all belong to Holy Trinity and are able assistants to the zealous pastor Rev J B Kelly in all his undertakings They have also done excellent work for the new St Edwards Hospital where they have furnished a room for sick and disabled members BLESSED THE

great orator aroused A handsome sum was realized for the St Vincent de Paul SocietyA of the services at the Sacred Heart church was the excellent musical programme arranged by Mise Lula Mat tingly recognized as one of the most efficient organists in the dty which included a number of the best composi tions of the noted Irish masters The observances of the day were of a like nature at St

wrangling with which we have nothing to do further than to remark with every body else that the time might have been put to better use Labors representatives after earnest and persistent effort pull In the drag net and find something in it this time There are bills prohibiting child labor providing for a Labor Commissioner and assistant making Labor day a legal holiday and a few others in which labor was interested We did not get all we wanted nor are the bills that passed just what was desired The bill requiring the union label on State printing for which the Typographical Union has been fighting for fifteen years would have passed had it reached a vote It was caught in a pocket in the stretch and lacked the twothirds vote to pull it out and bring it up for action This was due in a great measure to a lack of unity in its support at the start which gave its opponents the advantage of time which they utilized and en abled them under the rules of the House though in the minority to defeat the bill by preventing a vote on it thus wresting a hard fought and justly earned victory from the union printers and the friends of all labor organizations Workingmen however have cause for congratulation that this session of the Legislatnre was not as usual fruitless They have broken the ice in Kentucky and made a beginning They put up a united fight toward the close of the session that will entitle them to more respect hereafter They were taught a lesson which if w suew cess in securing legislation in the future that is by a united effort begun in time and persistently ad hered to they can get what they want Had they been as united and earnest at the beginning as 0 they were in the closing days of 1 1thesession every labor bill would have passed They should arrange to do completely in future what was done in part during this legislative session and they should begin to arrange for it as soon as possible for it will require time and money First the official list should be prepared of the votes for and against the labor bills also the course of State officials and poli ticians on these issues and these furnished every labor organization in the State to keep conveniently for reference so that workingmen will remember their friends and not forget their enemies Every elec tion campaign should be watched and every opponent of labor no matter what his politics or in what part of the State should be defeated if possible Messrs Holland and Reichert for instance who defeated the union label bill and opposed the labor measures generally should be made an example of in this respect Arrangement should be made for conference on labor matters and preparation of bills so that all inter ested agree and unite in their sup port before being sent to the Legis lature Then when the Legisla tare meets establish a llabor headquarters to be BMintained the entire itea ion in charge of representa n tiveeable to advocate and defend the measures and to hustle and a pu h them through This will take time begin now and there will be plenty of time It will cost roomy let every labor orpmizn lion in the Stat Jeya small a rJ monthly per capita tax for the pur pose and by the time it is needed the aggregate amount will be suffi cientQrganized labor in the State fortunately is in shape to do this by earnestly completing its organization in bringing closer together and in thorough working the trades unions the local central bodies and the State federation Do this as soon as possible the earlier the betterand with the organization complete the prelimi naries can be arranged and the campaign carried to success There is plenty of time but the more time the more thorough the preparation the more united the body the more money can be raised and the more likelihood of success EXTREMES Extravagance is burdensome but too much economy is as bad since we get nothing and yet pay dearly for it The last City Council car ried out the economy idea for two years with results wholly different I from what they intended Tlie people were deprived of conve niences and protection litigation followed with decisions against the city services not rendered had to be paid for anyhow with costs and attorneys fees added the entire city business was interrupted and confused aud instead of curtailing expenses they are greatly increased with no benefit to the city The last case is that of the police on whom the Council in 18991900 tried economy by reducing the ap propriation and salaries causing a reduction of the force which the courts reversed and now Judge Toney decides that all the police are entitled to full pay with in terest for that year though many of them were not on duty for weeks Add to this costs of the cases and attorneys fees and where does the economy come in Besides during that year the city was deprived of police service for which it has to pay more than if the police had been on duty WHY THEY STOPPED When the British stopped using lyddite shells in the Boer war the English claimed it was in the in terest of humanity that the deadly missile was relegated Recent pub lication of British tests of lyddite coupled with the fact that its effect on the Boers was not as great as expected give another and opposite reason why it is not used These tests show that lyddite is so de structive that it can not be con trolled that its effects extend over a radius of a square mile rebound ing and refracting often doing more injury at the point of dis charge than where the shell struck Thus when used in South Africa while comparatively few Boers were killed the number of British stunned blinded deafened para lyzed and property wrecked within British lines was alarming Tests in the British navy show like un satisfactory results So lyddite will not be used in the British army and navy not because of its deadly effects on the enemy but its dis aster to the user So much for the plea of humanity THAT TREATY Periodically we read dispatches about the threatening situation in China There is to be a revolt in Korea Russia is trespassing on neutral territory in Manchuria Japan is preparing for war with Ruwia and the latest iin that Rus sia is getting ready for war withII Japan All Hiese reports are London As none of those reports have been verified but on the con trary Russia and Japan have con cluded a treaty covering their re- sPective interests in the Far East entirely satisfactory to them aud all other Governments except Eng land it would seem those dispatches from London are periodical spells of tho wish being father to the thought occasioned by the realization that in the Far East as i everywhere else nowadays Eng land is being left in the lurch and no one is silly enough to pull her chestnuts out of the fire Japan instead of allowing England to dic tate her course has attended to her own business without even letting England know of it Hence the LouIIdou j I That treaty precludes war between Russia and Japan unless one or the I other violates it and neither is likely to do so to gratify England A London dispatch says the wearing of the green on St Pat ricks day was not as popular as usual in that city because of the proBoer utterances of Irishmen on receipt of the news of Methuens defeat So far as the jingoes are concerned this is true but the real cause of unpopularity of the green in government circles is the mani fest growth and strength all over Great Britain and right in London of the sentiment favorable to jus tice to Ireland and disapproving the pillage and slaughter of the Boers The wearing of the green in Great Britain meant both those treasonable sentiments this year and it was more universal than ever known in England and Scotland where the Irish League and kindred organizations held public meetings listened to and applauded speeches not pleasing to the op pressors of St Patricks people and the Boers Indeed the innocent little shamrock representing what it did this year was not popular but very unpopularto the of London What interest has the Louisville City Railway in child labor that its attorneys and lobbyists at Frank fort exerted themselves to

believe our readers will appreciate the following eloquent and brilliant 1 address delivered by lIon Matt I ODohcrty the St Patricks day cele bration of the Ancient Order of Hiber nians of this city Ladies and Gentlemen The sentiments which the recurrence of the feast day of Irelands glorious apostle arouses in the hearts of Irishmen are at once sacred and sublimesacred in so far as they relate to Irelands past sublime as they relate to Irelands future a past without reproach the sure pledge of a future with out a stain We have been charged and perhaps with some justice with dwelling too much in and upon the past but have our critics always considered as carefully- as critics should do how precious Ire- lands glorious past is and should be to the Irish race We may be permitted to at least doubt that they have They are usually of the utilitarian school men to whom sentiment is an abomination and whose highest ecstacy comes from the seraphic contemplation of pounds shll lings and pence or as we call it on this side of the Atlantic of the mighty dollar A nation without a past worth recalling is poor indeed a nation without o past to be proud of but false to or forgetful of it is a moral bankrupt and this whatever our utilitarian friends may say to the contrary is by far the worst sort of bank ruptcy All history warns us it but pre sages decay dissolution and death We can not if we would and would not if w could forget the glorious past of the land of our fathers Like the skies of Ireland her history is full of sunshine and storm Fortunately the memories which cluster around the name of Patrick carry us back to skies full of sunshine and although in making our mental retrospect centuries of almost ceaseless storm must he encountered we are none the less able to appreciate the splen dor of the vision which rises before us when we behold a whole nation led by the hand of Patrick a willing captive from the darkness of paganism to the light of Christian truth and this too without the shedding of a drop of human blood There is no fact better attested in history than that persecution or pro scription for conscience sake never has been and I hope never will be encouraged by Irishmen It is their proud boast that whether pagan or Christian although deeply religious they were never intolerant Pat rick was not therefore like the apostles of so many other lands called upon to seal his mission with his blood Our pagan ancestors received the glad tidings of the gospel from his lips willingly and with grateful hearts He lived to see Chris tian churches and schools take the place of the temples of pagan worshipall through Ireland to see religious houses monasteries and convents start up as if by magic from one end of the island to the other to look long before the end of his days had come upon a people Chris tianized through his ministry and des tined in Gods providence to carry the faith which he brought them to the uttermost bounds of the earth Men whose unaided reason had taught them to worship as the source of life and light the most glorious of Gods visible works the sun needed but a suggestion to carry their minds to the knowledge and contemplation of its Creator It is not from all this to be inferred that St Patrick succeeded without great labor and sacrifice upon his part in accomplishing results so astounding Difficul ties indeed many and great were en countered The Druids with whom he had to contend and who wielded such powerful influence in pagan Ireland were men of great learning devoutly at tached to the religion of their country and ready to make any sacrifice in its defense They met St Patrick they listened to him they debated with him not captiously like the Pharisees who hung upon the footsteps of Our Lord that they might ensnare Him in His speech but manfully and openly as men do who seek to know the truth and are ready to accept it when it is placed before them To the spiritually inclined active and analytical mind of the Celt it was com paratively easy to demonstrate that there must be a selfexisting uncreated first cause and that the first cause so existing must be of Infinite power intelligence and love It was only when the apostle went farther and proposed to their belief the mystery of mysteries Gods revela tion of His own nature contained in the doctrine of the Trinity that revolt was threatened We are told that on one occasion while expounding and defending this greatest mystery of the Christian re ligion St Patrick to enforce his argu ment and to illustrate the great truth which no human mind or angelic intelligence has ever been able to comprehend plucked a shamrock from the sod beneath his feet and raising it before his aston ished and delighted audience asked them to behold in its tripple leaves con stituting one shamrock natures sugges tion if not explanation of the truth which he had announced them three divine persons each coequal coeternal distinct yet but one God It is to this interesting circumstance in the life of St Patrick one of Irelands most gifted poets alludes in one of his sweetest poems St Patrick found upon the sod This emblem of our triple God And taught us by the shamrock How one in three distinct may shine Yet three in one as leaves combine And their joint blessings intertwine Tis a lesson from the shamrock We love to read in the pages of Irish history of the peace happiness and pros perity which followed the establishment theefifth century down to the Danish inva Irelandswas without doubt the most peaceful prosperous and enlightened country ru the world The learned and thelearning of the worldl found shelter and protection in her schools when the savage hordes from themortbweepingdova upon the o Roman empire wiped from the face of i Europe almost every trace of Roman civilization and Roman letters As soon as the storm which accompanied the fall I of the Roman empire had subsided Irish missionaries the spiritual children of St Patrick inheritors oi his zeal and of his apostolic spirit went forth to every part of Europe They were heard in the I forests of Germany by the banks of the I Rhine in Italy France Spain and Poland It was during this the Augus tiniau age of Irish history that Ireland became known throughout the world as the Island of Saints and of Learning Irelands proud record in this regard does not rest alone nor even chiefly upon the testimony of Irish historians Were it so there might be some ground for saying that it is more highly colored than the facts of history warrant The testimony however comes in most abundant measures from historians of worldwide reputation who can not be So much as suspected of partiality to Ire landCamden the great English Protestant historian and scholar of the seventeenth century the author of Brittania a work which has been called the sItU whereat modern English historians have lighted their little tapers II but vies with his still more illustrious and distinguished Catholic countryman of the seventh century the venerable Bede in testifying to the preeminence of Irish learning and sanctity in those ages We have it upon the authority of Camden that for generations the nobility of England and of other European countries sent their children to Ireland to be edu cated that the unrivaled schools of Ire land were open and free not only to her own students but to those as well from all other lands I Lest I should be charged with over stating the case I will give you Cam dens own words The disciples of St Patrick made so great progress in Christianity that in the following age Ireland was called the Island of Saints and none could be moreholy or learned than the Irish monks both in their own country and Britain whosent swarms of post holy men into all Europe To them Luxorium in Burgundy Bohense in Italy Hornepolis in Fianconia St Callus in Helvetia Malmeshuria in Lin denfaine and many other monasteries in Britain owe their origin The following saints were from Ireland Celius Sedu lus Presbyter Columba Columbanus Colmanus Aidanus Gllus Kileanus Madulphus Brendanus and many others who were renowned for their sancity and learning Our Anglo Saxons Camden continues at that time flocked to Ire land as if to purchase goods Hence it is frequently read in our histories on holy men he has been sent to Ireland to schoolIn the life of Selgenus we read Moved by the example of our fathers for a love of reading he went to the Irish renowned for their philosophy Front the Irish our ancient English an cestors appear to have received their method of making letters andobviously made use of the same characters which the Irish now make use of The testimony of Camden which I have just read is in strict accord with the testimony of the venerable Bed written almost a thousand years before I will place their evidence side by side before you so that you may compare iit and see how well they agree This country says Bede pressed upon Ire land likewise with like carnage There were in it at that time many nobles and gentry from among the English who in the time of Bishops Finanus and Col tnanus having withdrawn themselves sI thither for either the sake of divine study or to lead more chaste lives some gav themselves up to monastic life and others attended in the monasteries to hear tlie professors All of them the Scots most freely admitted and supplied them gratis with daily sustenance with books and masters So it is pretty evident as you may readily see that at least 1300 yearsI before the little red schoolhouse became the emblem of fanaticism and bigotry in America Irish Roman Cath olics had established free schools in Ire land not only for their own use and benefit but for that of all from whatever country who might desire to drink deep of the fountain of learning The evidence of the two great historians which- I have read to you is corroborated by the testimony of the Protestant Archbishop of Armagh one of the greatest scholars and historians the Church of England has ever produced the celebrated Jame- Usher Ireland says Usher at that time was preeminent above every king dons of Europe for her pursuits in relig ion and learning- McGeoghegan in his well known history quotes the following extract from an old epistle upon Ireland by Usher What an able poet has written of his own country can be more fitly applied to our Scotia While rude Mars was disturbing Lalium and the world this was the only country which hospitably received the muses that were expelled From her Charles transferred the wisdom of Greece and of Latium to the Celtea and from her he obtained the doctors and instructors of the uninstructed youth Notkerus Bal bus a monk of St Gall who wrote th- history e and life of Charles tine Great seventy years after his death clearly proves that the above doctors had been brought from Ireland Again in his celebrated syllogisms Usher writes In these happy days when the liberal sciences flourished in Ireland above every other country two Scots came from Hi hernia with British merchants to Gaul One of them named Clement was ap pointed to settle at Paris In the light of the splendid testimony which I have just read and which is but a small part ofwhat might be Introduced on the subject are not some of tthe alleged historians of our day who affect tp regard as mythical the jstbry of Ire landss ancient glory rather to be pitied for their iignorance than condemned fo their malice Name if you can among the whole tribe of scribblers and hirelings one whom any scholar would think of classing with a Bede n Camden or an Usher It is little to be wondered at that this glorious period which has been called Irelands golden age should have been the delight and the inspiration of her poets orators and historians Who has not felt the thrill of Moores magnifi cent appeal Let Erin remember the days of old Ere her faithless sons betrayed her When Malachi wore the collar of gold Which he won from the proud invader When her Kings with standard of green unfurled Led the Red Branch Knights to danger Ere the emerald gem of the Western world Was set in the crown of a stranger On Lough Neaghs bank as the fisher man strays When the clear cold eves declining He sees the round towers of other days In the wave beneath him shining Thus shall memory often in dreams sub lime Catch a glimpse of the days that are over Thus sighing look through the waves of time For the long faded glories they cover Her unconquered and unconquerable spirit is as true to the cause of liberty justice and humanity today as ever it was She is as bold and outspoken on behalf of the brave Dutch burghers of the Transvaal today as she was bold and outspoken on behalf of Washington anti his followers in 177C She indeed has made no compromise with dishonor Her representatives in the British Parliament have denounced the barbarity of the British forces in South Africa have held their savagery up to the execration of mankind just as Edmund Burke in the same Parliament and Grattan and others in the Irish Parliament denounced Britsh barbarity to the American colo nists more than a century ago Ireland cheers the Boers today as she did Amer ica in 76 and 1812 and this too although then as now the British Gov ernment would gladly have purchased her silence by almost any price she might name In his Irish soldiers address to Columbia on St Patricks day Scanlon has given very happy expression to a few historical facts which should not be for gotten You now have royal beaux aroon Who dance around you late and noon Like stars around the summer moon Outrivaled by your glory But in the days when you were young And sleuthhounds on your footsteps hung While royal masters gave them tongue It was then a different story But in those dark and evil days Ould Ireland rose beyond the says And backed your throneupsetting ways In the face of rack and prison And gave you all she had asthore Strong hands warm hearts and love galore And cheered you from seabeat shore Till all your stars had risen- I trust that time will never come when the voice of Irelatd will not be heard upon the side of justice and humanity ofeinexpressable shame that other nations in a better position to be heard upon be half of the Boers to speak a word of com fort or encouragement maintain what they call a discreet silence The course or our own Government and people is perhaps the most shameful of all The spirit of commercialism and not that of 1776 is now apparently the dominant force I do not however believe that the shameful degeneracy which all this ofethe pro Britieh administration of which Secretary Hay is the official representa tive and which would if it were allowed and it must be conceded with a great deal of propriety remove the American example front our national standards and substitute a British magpie The great masses of liberty loving justice worshiping people of America are not however represented by Hay If he had bat his way England and not the Sen ate of the United State would have dic rated the terms of the treaty recently entered into and the great canal which American money is to build would not have an American gun to protect it America has never heretofore failed to raise her voice in behalf ofa country struggling for its liberty for the God given right of selfgovernment and her silence now is due in no small degree to goodsreason to believe Hay has aided in prac ticing upon the people of the United States We had it dunned into our ears iter sled and reiterated in a thousand dif ferent forms that while our war with Spain was going on England was the one friend we had among the nations of the earth and that but for her friendly inter ference in our behalf all the powers of Europe would have made war upon us At banquets in political meetings on the rostrum and very often in the pulpits even we heard of the affection which shouldexist between Englishspeaking races with hands across the sea and whose blood was so much thicker than water and America would never forget what England had done for her in her hour of peril It was a most fascinating story and told so often and with such apparent authority that no one scarcely but a few IrishAmericans dared to doubt it And even among IrishAmericans there were those who were ready to can cel at least half their debt against Eng land in consideration of what she was supposed to have done for this country at rltrying a time

and the British hypocricy behind it The official documents in the posses sion of the German Government were published in the official press of Germany and behold the uncontest able fact was brought to light that the only government which sought through its agents to combine and con federate all the powers of Europe against the United States was the British Gov ernment through its Washington agent Secretary Hays special friend my Lord Pauncefote No one doubts that Paunce fote represented the wishes of his Gov ernment iin doing what he did Had any other Ambassador or Minister from any foreign Government done in Washington what the official record shows Paunce fote did he would have been sent home without a days delay just as Sackville was sent back to England a few years ago by Mr Cleveland Now that the fraud by which the silence of the American people was in a great measure secured has been exposed it is to be hoped that the oldtime man hood of the nation will assert itself and that if our Government can not stretch its strong arm to save the two South American republics from destruction it can at least let its voice be heard on be half of the Boer women and children who are perishing by the thousands in the murderous concentration camps The voice of Columbia should certainly be heard in solemn protest against n war upon women and children- It must be intensely gratifying to the lovers of liberty and justice the world over to observe that neither the indifference of those who should be their friends nor the malice of their British enemies has been able to once shake the deter mination of the brave burghers to main tain the independence of their country They have already provided graves in the Transvaal for more than 25000 of their assailants and the brave Delarey and De Wet in the last few weeks have given England the most convincing surance that there is still room to spare for as many more The end of the Boer war has not yet come often asit has
