Position and Purposes of the United Irish League Irelandl the Land of Eviction Robbery of the Helpless Tenantry PRIVATE OWNERSHIP THE REMEDY In a speech at the meeting of Irish League delegates for North and South Sligo Michael Davitt spoke plainly as follows on the purpose of the League onI the land question There never was in the history of re from in any land under heaven a stronger for the abollIor more overwhelming case tion of an evil institution than the caseI which the Irish people have against IrishI landlordism and the time has comeI when we must grapple in a final struggle with this ancient and incurable social curse and make its continued existence I impossible in Ireland Our demand is that the landlords shall be compulsorily bought out There is DO injustice in this demand The peace welfare and pros perity of the country imperatively re this remedy The country is unanimous in support of this drastic but just proceeding There is no confiscation proposed The interests involved can only be justly compensated and this being so and Ulster being as strongly for compulsory measures as the rest of Ire land there need only be the necessary I pressure on the part of the nation to compel the lawmakers of Westminster toII give effect to an almost universal de mand This is a vital problem for a11I the country It is not a reform for tenI ants only it is more It is a life or death problem for our race in Ireland and not a mere agitation It is a national prob lem of the truest character as all move ments niust be which are concerned with the rooting of the Celtic race in the soil of this ancient fatherland of ours I have no patience with critics and fault finders with the eternal donotbjngs of Irish politics who can only see in movements like the Land League and the United Irish League agitations for farmers and nothing else They are much more They are movements for Ireland in the best sense because they seek to win itsI soil back again for the race and to create such conditions of life here at home as will keep our people within the four shores of our country How can we do this By freeing the land of Ireland for homesteads and for labor by giving to every man who wants a holding a chance of having one by offering every inducement to tenants to enlarge their farms to laborers to obtain land to work to artisans and others in our towns and villages all the necessary facilities to obtain some land if they wish it for gardens or other useful pur poses In a word to put all the industry and enterprise possible upon the land of Ireland under conditions which will reward and not rob such labor of the fruits of its toil This is our object in demanding the land for the people John Bright in a speech deliv ered in Dublin in October I860 saldIIreland has been a land of evictions a word whichrI suspect is scarcely known in any other country No evic tions are almost peculiar to Ireland They are a social crime known only to English rulea crime damnable in every sense in striking at the homes of the people for a civil debt and destroying not alone the shelter but in so many instances the moral safeguards of the family as well There is not a single man who will be evicted on tho De Freyne estate for rent wh has not at least as good a right to his cabin as the landlord ha to his mansion He may owe a debt to the landlord for the land but the home is his property and the law which turns him and his children out of that home for such a debt is barbarous and unChristian My friends the time is come when Ifwe are in earnest in this struggle for free homesteads and free land we should strip for the fight The country is bleeding tr death The best of our people are flying from its shores We can stop this vital drain by breaking down the land system which began and continues the work o emigration The United Irish League must oppose every landlord no matte- what his religion may be who is not for the people We must fight these oppon ents everywhere no matter what their calling may be and to this end it may b necessary for every branch of the League to recruit its full strength of members a onceEvery branch should form an organiz- Ing committee right away and see thatt every man within the parish or region ofr the branch should be waited upon andl respectfully invited to join the organiza tion save and except of course suchI persons as are well known to be sup porters of the landlord party Let it b made perfectly clear that land grabbers are the worst enemies of the movementt which seeks the abolition of landlordism pad that 110 members of the League ca fY 4M r- o hold any intercourse with those who either take their neighbors land or help the landlord to resist the national resolve to end the system which he supports MRS MARY GAFFNEY Passed Away as the Morning Angelus Rang Out Last Sunday Just as the last strains of the morning Angelus rang out on last Sunday to awaken a sleeping city to praise its Creator there went home to God a nobl Christian woman Hers was a life rich in merit and beautiful in the sight of God for over seven months she had been confined to a bed of suffering but she bore it

the hearts of those who knew her tier stately figure will long be missed here for she ardently loved the house of God and it washer greatest delight and lifelong custom to assist at each Sundays high mass to hear the word of God Her life was lived for Him and her fellowcreatures and into her mind there came no thought of self As a wife and mother her cares were mani fold but with her they had the en nobling power to mellow her disposition to the greatest sweetness and serenity Sixtyseven years had made a silvery crown on her head to frame a face that pictured better than words a remarkable character without guile of any sort aim pIe as a child and as loving as cheerful and as confident in the promises of a loving Father to his children in exile Her funeral took place with requiem high mass at St Patricks church on Tuesday morning and she was laid to rest in St Louis cemetery There in the blessed company of so many venerable heads of St Patricks congregation that had preceded her

sympathy of a host of friends is extended to them in their sad bereavement THE IRISH FIELD DAY Encouraging Reports Are Re ceived From All Parts of the City yi During the past week meetings of the

During that time Scallys band furnished music to which the Knights and ladles danced to their hearts content Ice cream lemonade and other refreshments were served by the Knights during the trip up the

the old fashioned picnic dinner The children were not forgotten The large boys played ball and the larger girls in dulged in girlish games while the smaller children devoted their time to the merrygoround The Knights of Columbus chartered that machine for the day and the little ones rode till they were tiredEach family group furnished its own dinner in the way of substantial while the

In the year 1042 Father Jogues of the Society of Jesus wended his way through the valley near where the city of Syra cuse now stands on his mission to the Huron Indians This martyred priest who also gave the name to Lake George laid the way for the foundation of St Johns church and one can not but experience sentiments of reverence and awe as the realization comes to the mind that this event was even before the pilgrims stood upon the rock of Plymouth and before the Dutch nlade their homes upon Manhattan Island In 1C5I in the midst of the forests St Johns church was dedicated under the auspices of Father Le Moyne and the dark hued natives of the wilderness embraced the Christian religion Later the black robed priests cime and went the French and English wars brought scenes of carnage and the church passed tbrough stormy days But consecrated by the heroic labors and the life blood of the Jesuit fathers who traversed the pathless woods and the unknown lakes it was not born to die and so years afterward when the American republic had been born men of a new race were raised and quickened to complete the work so nobly begun Thomas McCarthy and James Lynch residents of the town of Salina a place which was the beginning of the present city of Syracuse inaugu rated a movement in the early part of the last century which led to the construc tion ofa Catholic church The

landlords and Government when the Irish members of Parliament in debate charged conspiracy be tween the Irish landlords and Government in the enforcing of coercion in Ireland that the land lord trust includes governmen officials some of whom wer named that they had subscribed a fund of 500000 and finally that proclamations subjecting district to the crimes act were issued at the instigation of the landlords trust Consternation followed tbe charge and a dozen Governmen officials including Secretary Wynd ham were on their feet indig nantly denying the accusation But Mr Redmond coolly flashed in their faces public and other documents proving the compact and bearing the signatures of Clou brook Barrymore Ashbourne and others and finally of Secretar Wvndham THe authenticity of the papers have not been denied Some of them are the origina papers others facsimile copies The dates of the papers and of the official acts to which they refe coincide and make out a strong case backed up by Dublin Castle records which the Governmen was challenged to produce Under the conspiracy law tht landlords connected with the organization are liable to heavy penalty the Government official implicated are subject to removal and prosecution So astounding was the revelation that Secretary t Wyndham was nonplussed He 1could not dispute the papers nor the official proclamations issued in compliance with them Queries as to where and how the Irish mem bers obtained the documents and copies of official records were loudly made but elicited no reply and the session closed amid sup pressed excitement What will be the next move is the quandary Dublin Castle officials are reticent the govern ment press cautious in referring to the matter and the Irish members serenely view the result of the expose That they do not intend to let it rest is evident but whether they will proceed with criminal charges in the Irish courts which have jurisdiction of offences in Ireland or by parliamentary in quiry of the Ministry on the sub ject of landlord conspiracy and connivance of Dublin Castle offi cials they give no clew The general and causeless proclamations from Dublin Castle and the enforcement of coercion in the most peaceable districts of Ireland is now clearly explained It is a combination of landlords and the Governmentnot to prevent crime suppress disorder and protect persons and property as the law is professedly intendedbut simply and solely to use thG powers of Government underjthe guise of law to crush the United Irish League liES A PRINCE Prince Pospigliosi whom no body knows or cares anything about has with the aid of press dispatches from Rome gotten his flame into the newspapers again 0this is the Prince who some months ago sought to create a sen sation because no Catholic priest would marry him to a divorced New York woman of whom he had become enamored and finally amid pomp and splendor had some one else perform the cere mony Now he is venting his indignation at the outrageous treatment of his American wife Y n n n because a Catholic sisterhood declines to furnish a nurse to atten the arrival of an expected heir and he has filed protests with tbe Vatican the Italian Government and American legation which are still unheeded He now announce his purpose to abandon the Catholic church As he kicked himsel outside the pale of the churc when he went through the form of a marriage with a divorced womat he is already out and no one witt object to his declaring himself out some more What the Prince will do to the United States Government for failing to protect his American wife from outrage remains to be seen As Italia noblemen do not rate very high iin the American market and Uncl Sam though ever ready to protec his citizens anywhere holds tbat an American woman marrying a foreign title forfeits all claims upon the American Government it will require compulsion before an American war vessel will train its guns upon the Vatican When the heir arrives the Princ will probably raise another ructio because the Pope will not consent to baptize and be godfather for tbe Princeling It is remarkable tha some people despite their great ness fail to impress it upon tbe powers that be Unless the Princ can induce the Italian Government to take up his cause and bring tbe Vatican to taw we fear his ugh will flicker under a bushel despit his noise Is not the Associated Press hart up for news in Rome when iit makes such nonentities as this Prince and his antics the subjec of its dispatches to the newspapers And is it bigotry or lack ofr IInose for news that accounts for the newspapers publishing these dispatches under prominent headlines FRANCES SPASM The fanatical crusade against time religious orders in France is being enforced without any serious resistance the orders submitting under protest allowing their ichools hospitals and convents to- be closed and preparing to leave the country This course of the religions has had the effect to restrain the public from violence he people likewise merely protesting This periodical fanaticism will run its course much sooner and without blood and carnage iit given full and free scope Time eligious orders will be only temporarily inconvenienced they cannot be suppressed as their field iis the world and their work in behalf of humanity They will remove to other countries where they will be welcomed and the people of which will appreciate the benefits even in a worldly sense of their nstitutions and ministrations France deprived of schools charitable institutions and industries ohductcd by the religious orders will soon realize that France not he Church is the loser The hurch property may possibly be onfiscated but in due time when trance awakes to her senses it- will be restored or paid for and the eligious orders recalled if they will ome as has been done before All people have their own peculiar way of manifesting their chol eric or evil propensities and in Trance all these elements of high and low degree unite upon a platI form of opposition to the common nemy of all of them religionnot- my the Catholic church but all eligion through some political excitement attain power attempt by gislation and force to eradicate a t religion and as they proceed 1 divide make war upon and destroy each other Such fanatical out breaks like an epidemic whet past control must run its course and as by quarantine and isolation epidemics are deprived of subjects to feed upon so the withdrawal of the religious orders from France bring the fanaticism to a head to expend itself in the only waydissension- and mutual destruction Popular disapproval is already apprehended though not manifested since the army is utilized to enfore civi orders and guard public officials showing that they already fear tthie people Dissension is also eviden because of the extreme limit to which the new Ministry are carry ing the law enforcing it agains schools and institutions which the previous Ministry held to be ex empt With the object of fanaticism complying with its decrees and the moderates and extremists disagree ing it seems the antireligious cru sade in France will be short lived and we can only hope it will pas away without any excesses to shock the world with its brutality and beastliness as in the past There is anxiety and disappointment in English trade and indus trial circles over results and prospects in reviving South African business because of American and German competition The Yeviva is on in earnest in every section there being a widespread determi nation to repair war damages re establish routes extend commuui cations open up new territory rebuild and enlarge factories and storehouses The trade commissioners sent toSoutb Africa report a general desire to give this work to English firms if possible but three essentials are necessary or iit will be given to Americans or Germans British prices must be reduced weight of machinery and structural work lightened to save freight charges and methods changed to insure prompt delivery and completion It is these three advantages over British products that give to Americans and Ger mans the opportunity that enables them to offer such terms as to price and time as to exclude the British from all chance to compete All the large contracts for railroads bridges and buildings thus far awarded have been given to Ameri ans and Germans because of these advantages in iron and steel work Col Lynch has not yet been tried for high treason in London rime case has been several times emanded on motion of the Government on the plea of absent wit nesses though Lynch admits the lets charged the only issue being me of lawdo the alleged acts institute high treason as charged It would seem the prosecution hould have decided this point before swearing out the warrant of arrest The testimony of witnesses cannot in any way affect the construction or interpretation of the aw testimony is only necessary to prove acts and as Lynch admits hem the plea of absent witnesses is only a pretext to gain time robably if Lynch would give bail and agree not to claim his seat in arliament the case would be allowed to go by default but he efuses to do either and remains in jail Congress appropriated 50000 for the erection ofa monument in Vashin ton to the memory of taunt Casimir Pulaski an exile from Poland because of his patriotism and religion and Brigadier General in the Revolutionary army who after several years service was killed in the assault upon avannah Ga In due time the forts and sacrifices of foreigners and Catholics in the founding of this great goyerntnent will be roperly acknowledged though it may be somewhat tardy Now the English denounce the mericans for manipulating and

Chicag was recently fully attested in an examination for admission to the City Normal School in competitio with scholars from all other school Of the fortytwo applicants from the Catholic schools forty passe with averages of 764 to 952 Some folks claim the Catholi schools are not up to date but such results as the above indicat otherwise The daily press are excusable for the erratic and often ridiculou reports they publish of Catholi affairs and persons but we fail to find any palliation for the Catholi papers that republish these account without change or revision Are the editors too careless or is iit possible they do not know any better Last Sunday was hot in othe ways than the weather Timer were two murders several fights cutting and shootiug scrapes am the police arrested 124

green liner Is very popular- In laces and embroideries the varied tints of yellow are represented in their prettiest guise the combination ot ecru ind cream tipts being wonderfully ef ffective The newest thing in muslin shows a lingerie embroidered border worked it lack and very lacelike in appearance- An imported gown of rose pink muslin shows this finish Short pointed straps of velvet ribbon tad silk bands find many uses this season and tiny black velvet buttons are very nuch used in the tip ends and so are the little crochet buttons The ruffled skirts show up pretty well in the linen gowns one phase of them zinga deepgraduated circular flounce in which there are four circular ruffles each one edged with a band of white men fagotted on Steel color is one of the latest innovations in the color line apparently and you see it in other materialsetamine for sample trimmed with sliver braid and lack velvet Itis not even swell but it- is a trying color all the same The blouse coat has a round revers ollar also stitched and piped and a plaited basque back finished with bands of white silk and dangling passementcrie ornaments of green silk The chemi ette vest is of ecru lace fastened with a fancy green button Already we are informed that the perfectly flat back is out of style that there must be a plait of some sort at the sack Added to this is another rumor that the day frock is tobe shorter with not quite so much of a train as formerly no matter how dressy it may be One mode of using the green note in yonr costume without making it conspicuous is in the lining or skirt foundation You see this in a white mohair ostume made over light green silk and nished with green stitching and a piping of white silk on the edges of the triple IcirtSome combination of blue and green is onsidered decidedly a distinct feature of ishionable dress but it is one which rea quires a fine discrimination ofshades and modes of putting them together or it isiI an absolute failure When it is managed right however the effect is extremely smart ST PHILIP NERIS PICNIC The picnic and outing which had to- be posponed on account of the unfavor able weather will be held at Phcenix
