Celebration In Memory of Irelands Apostle of Temperance Labor Unions Joined in a Dion stor Procession on Eye of the Anniversary Concert Followed an Eloquent Sermon on Father Dlatliews Life and Work HIS MEMORY IS EYBR KEPT GREEN The anniversary of the birth of the Rev Father Theobald Mathew the great Irish apostle of temperance was the occasion of a double celebration in Cork his native city on Thursday and Friday October 9 and 10 Father Mathews birthday fell on October 10 but this year it was celebrated on the eve of the day as well as on the day itself From an early hour the principal thoroughfares were thronged with thousands of citizens who demonstrated their love and veneration for the memory and marvelous labors of the great pioneer of temperance In honor of the event illuminations of a very extensive description were to be noted in various parts of the city chief among which stood the Mathew statue in Patrick street The effect of the gas devices on either side of the monument was most striking and attracted con siderable attention The Father Mathew church and convent adjoining were also illuminated and presented an extremely pretty appearance About 8 oclock a procession was formed in front of the Mathew church and was taken part in by the Cork Boys Brigade with band the trade and labor bodies of the city religious societies country contingents and the city bands Very little time was lost in completing the marshaling arrangements and the t enormous body of processionists moved along The route chosen was as follows Parliament street Grand parade Great Georges street North Main street Popes quay Patricks bridge Patrick returning via Grand parade Par frIlameut street Georges quay Union quay Parnell liridgeand South Mali The demonstrators then assembled out side the Father Mathew Total Abstinence Society rooms in Queen street where they were addressed The procession was of enormous proportions and wended its way through the city amid a scene of intense enthusiasm a pleasing feature of the occasion being the fact that the huge mass of people had been handled and marshaled with conspicious tact and ability Several members of the Cork United Trades Association rendered valuable aid in this respect and the assistance must have been most accept able to the Rev Father Thomas O S F C and the Fathers of the Capuchin order on whose shoulders the burden of the work of organizing and marshaling lay The Father Mathew Total Absti r nence Band under the conductorship of Mr J F Lynch headed the procession and then came the Catholic Boys Brigade with band They mustered in great force and created a most favorable im pression by their smart appearance Following the latter marched the other bodies to the music of the various bands The boys of the Brigade which is under the direct control of Father Bernard O S F C looked very neat in their attractive uniforms and were marshaled by Mr Metcalfe physical drill instructor to the Brigade as well as by the following gentlemen who acted as officers Messrs Canny OKelly Barricale Barry Carroll Comerford Murray Heffernan Buckley The Brigade boys were headed by their brass and bugle bands which played at intervals along the route The following trades unions took part in the procession Printers coopers masons tailors boatmakers farriers painters carpenters stonecutters brewery workmen gas workers engineers cabinet makers upholsterers butchers tramwaymen bricklayers plasterers and othersWhen the procession arrived at Queen street those who participated in the demonstration were addressed from the windows of the Father Mathew Total Abstinence Hall The Rev Father Thomas presided and among those present in the hall wereRev Father Joseph Alderman T OConnor Alder man William

Richmond W Donovan M Horgan P Jackman J Flynn The Rev Chairman who was loudly cheered on coming forward to speak said Gentlemen No small degree of pride do Heel tonight at eight of such a demonstration as is before ine of the manhood of Cork assembled to pay a trib Uuteof homage to the memory of Father Theobald Mathew Unfeeling indeed would be the man whose soul was not r arcusedat the sight of such a huge gatht ring of the workers of a great city when gathered together for any purpose but unworthy of the name of titiaen would be he whose soul would not glow with objectru c n- II 7 of onr demonstration this night Sacred is the instinct of a nation or municipality that cherishes and reveres the memory of its illustrious children and perpetuates their name for all time Sacred then iis the cause that has inspired our assembly tonight for never did ion deserve tribut of grateful homage from any nation or any city such as the man in whose honor we are gathered together His is a name that has wreathed a halo of imtnortal glory round our city as be caused her to be recognized through the earth as the center whence emanated one of the greatest movements for the moral and social welfare of the masses that the world has ever known Gentlemen of our city bands I thank you for mani festing in such a sacred cause as that which gathers us together this evening that musical talent that is ever at the disposal of any cause for the advance ment of the Interests of our country I am not without hope our demonstration this night will arouse within many breasts an anxious desire to join again in the crusade of temperance that has woven such a halo of glory round the name of its beloved apostle Of this however I am convinced that it will sow the seed of a more general appreciation of his labors which must be always the foundation on which will be built up any national temperance organization Aldermen Cane and Kelleher also addressed the meeting and at the conclusion of the proceedings the trade and labor representatives joined the League of the Cross On Friday the actual anniversary of Father Mathews birth a celebration was held in Concert Hall at the Cork Exhibition A grand concert was pre ceded by an eloquent address on the life and work of Father Mathew by Rev Dr Kelly Bishop of Ros- sMARRIED MEN Of St Johns Congregation Have Formed an Organ- Ization The married men of St Johns congregation assembled at St Boniface Hall last Tuesday night to make arrange ments for their part in the coming cele bration of Very Rev Father Boxs golden jubilee Next March Father Bax will be fifty years a priest and in April he will celebrate his seventyfifth birthday It may be thatthe two events will be cele brated at one time At any rate his entire congregation are interested in the two events and are striving to have every thi g sit sliould be when athe time comes The married women have held meetings and have arranged their part so have the children the young ladies and the young men Last but by no means least the married men have entered the arena The meeting was called to order by Rev Father Welsh Father Bass assist ant who explained the object for which the men had been called together Rev Fathers Paul Alf and Bachmann also addressed the meeting E J Mann was elected Chairman A F Martin Secre tary and John T Garrity Treasurer It did not take long for the men to get together They decided to raise 3600 for the purpose of having the interior of the church frescoed and repainted in time for the approaching celebration Before the meeting adjourned 165 was raised and the men of St Johns believe they will find no difficulty in raising the 3600 IRISH ENVOYS Are Addressing Monster Meetings Wherever They Go Messrs Redmond Davitt Dillon and Blake the Irish envoys are still touring the country in the interest of the pro posed fund to be raised to fight the land lords in Ireland On Sunday night they addressed a monster meeting in New York City and received a tremendous ovation On Monday night they ad dressed another large gathering in Philadelphia and then started West During the week they visited Chicago and other western cities and are meeting with a warm welcome everywhere These Irish envoys who have sacrificed much for their native land deserve success In all probability if they return to Ireland before they go to London they will be jailed under the crimes act for alleged offenses committed in America Of course there is no law for this but England needs no law when ever Irishmen are to be punished It is possible though not probable that these distinguished members of the Irish national party in British Parliament will visit Louisville ere they return home As yet there is no branch of the United Irish League in Louisville WAS PREMATURE As presaged in the Kentucky Irish American last week it is by no means certain that Bishop John Lancaster Spald ing will succeed the late lamented Patrick A Feehan as Archbishop of Chicago The daily papers have acknowledged that their announcement was premature and now come forward to say that if Bishop Spalding iinot chosen that Archbishop Ireland may be transferred to the archdiocese of Chicago All this iis mere con jecture The new yaar may dawn before an Archbishop of Chicago appointed Blectiooa take place Tuesday ia forty twoMatee 1- r t c GRAND

has to live and learn and profit by past experiences So too will the members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and their friends profit by this first experience and next year or whenever they propose to have another fair they will know what to undertake and what mistakes to avoid Certain It is that the members of the A O H and many men of Irish birth or parentage who were not Hiber nians and their wives sisters mothers daughters and sweethearts did every thing possible to make the fair a success There was one disappointment to many that was the absence of Mayor Grainger on the opening night However his absence was unavoidable and can be overlookedOn opening night last Monday the Hibernians boys and girls to the number of three hundred and fifty and representatives of other Catholic

stone they saw the Cead Mille Faillhe on the peasants cottage with its thatched roof and went in They were welcomed by Mrs Thomas P Clines who addressed them in Gaelic By the way Mrs Clines proved a wonder She was attending to her little cottage all day and until midnight She looked after the cow the calf the sheep and goat had a fire in the oldfashioned fire place and her tea kettle on the hob She made Irish butter and disposed of Irish buttermilk Henceforward there is nothing too good for Mrs Clines as far as the Irish of Louisville are con earned Then there was a tug of war between

church at Fairfield Ky has been brought to Louisville as assistant to the Rev Denis Murphy pastor of St Williams church The people of Fair field are loathe to give up Father Boland and sent a monster petition to the Right Rev Bishop McCloskey asking that Father Boland be left with them How ever Bishop McCloskey values the services of Father Boland and thought his light was being hid under a bushel in a country parish It is stated on reliable authority that Father Murphy will be President of the Bishops new seminary at Preston Park this will indicate that the seminary will start out right rather Murphy is an energetic young man and thoroughly up to pate The people of St Williams congregation have become much attacked to him during his brief sojourn among them NOT A FABLE The Moral Is Dont Biow Yourself In the Parks Louisville ought to be proud of her park syiterat People who hays made parks and park architecture a study who lrgeu1Ueil that the Louisville parks ia pointof natural beauty surpass anything iu the U o f t d I world except the great natural Yellow stone Park The people of Louisville are paying for these parks and for their maintenance They are paying liberally and they should receive full value for their money Good order should be maintained by all means but It seems that either some one in authority is going a little too far or else some of the park policemen are taking upon themselves powers which they do not possess Last Sunday two gentlemen visited Jacob Park They had been in the hablt of visiting this park every Sunday for years Both are quiet modest inoffensive gen men and delight in paying their tribute to nature There is no better food for meditation than the contemplation of the works of God In one of these parks The trees the leaves the fruit the squirrels the birds and other animals that abound in them can not but lead one to think some master mind made all this He made the trees the birds the animals Why That I might enjoy them because they are beautiful He made them to give me a glimpse of heaven and to teach me if I obey his laws I will be happy with Him in the next world where there is no sorrow no care where everything is the perfection of beauty Many men are like this They adore God in admiring nature So it was with the two gentlemen mentioned above The park was their Sundayschool their church To them there were sermons in the leaves in the birds and beasts They adored and were glad It was their only dissipationOne them plays a French harp or mouth organ Last Sunday he and his friend wept to the park as usual and away up on the hillside one of them sat down to play Ina few minutes a park policman came up The modest minstrel put away his harp Where is that band inquired the policeman Moved up the hill said one of the gentlemen who thought the policeman was joking It is against the rules to play music in the parks It will have to be cut out1 Strange is it not You can go into one ofthe gardens at the foot of Jacob Park and blow yourself for beer but you can not remain in the park proper and blow yourself for recreation MACKIN COUNCIL Has Made Arrangements For Its Next Dance at Fountain Ferry Park Mackin

embraces the nonconformists Presbyterians Methodists Baptists and other religious denom inations outside the Established Episcopal church It is along religious denominational rather than political lines hence the diffi culty of the Government to keep its forces in line to pass the bill Great Britain has no general public school system the public school being merely local the loca authorities levying taxes and managing the schools They are mostly religious denominational it accordance with the wishes of the majority of the people in the respective localities Thus in Scotlauc they are principally Presbyterian while in England and Wales Meth odist Baptist Established church and other denominations contro schoolsThey the educational bill not because they are opposed to 1a general public school system but because of the provisions of the bill for the control of the schools This control is to be by the Impe rial Government which is to ape point the teachers While profess edly the religious and other char acteristics of the schools are not to be interfered with the Government is the head of the Established church and the opposition urge some amendment restraining the Government from appointing Established church teachers for nonconformist schools They con tend for the right of the parents 01 community to have their childret educated religiously as they prefer and agains t being taxed to support i Established church schools to which they do not wish to send their children We frankly admit they are right but they are so from a selfish motiveto defend themselves against the injustice they have for centuries foisted upon others Their position and the arguments they advance are those of the Catholic church especially in Ire land which in all that time they met with ridicule denunciation and slander and imposed on the Irish Catholics an Established church school system compelling Irish Catholics to support such schools by taxation though in conscience they could not and did not derive any benefit therefrom And the calumnies principally from non conformists with which Catholic appeals and protests were greeted in the British Parliamentt have echoed round the world and to this day are the basis of antiCatho lic attacks on the Catholic church on the educational issue in this and other countries The charges that the Catholic church is opposed to and seeks to control OP abolish public education that Catholics especially Irish Catholics are ignor and superstitious and many of the shameless libels on the Catholic priesthood and teaching orders I originated in the controversies in Great Britain over the efforts of the Catholics of Ireland to obtain in education just what the non conformists have enjoyed and are seeking to retain And none have been more obstinate and contempt uous in their opposition vindictive in denunciation prolific in slander a energetic in spreading calumny than these same nonconformists against the ttshCatho1into whose predicament time has placed then whOle spurned 81S8nd protests they are now uttering for themselves and to whose represen tatived the Irish Nationaliststn- t 11 Parliament they are now pleading to aid in saving them The Catholic church in Ireland or elsewhere is not and never was opposed to education any more than the British nonconformist fighting the Educational bill an opposed to aeducation Only at ignoramus or blind bigot believe the Catholic church is or ever was opposed to education That the Irish Catholics were ignorant and superstitious was true but due tithe very unjust action of the non conformists whose support enabled the British Government to force upon the Irish Catholics a detested proselyting school system thus depriving them of education for generations and thia is fully at tested by the fact thatt since Irish Catholics in all countries have had the opportunity for education they have demonstrated that ignorance and superstition are neither in herent nor due to their religion And this progress of the Irish Catholic people is also a vindication of the priesthood and teaching orders for the Irish Catholics stil cling to and follow the lead of the Catholic priesthood and religious orders who were their only refuge and friends in the time of perse cutionThe Educational bill which threatens the rights of conscience of the British nonconformists it the education of their children iis but a just retribution for their part in the past in aiding in the oppres sion of their Catholic brethren It has come home to them It iis their ox that is being gored The are not now condemning the Catholic church jeering and insulting the Irish But like the Irish Cath olics so often have done in vain they are now appealing and pro testing rehearsing Irish Catholic arguments and earnestly pleading the Irish Catholics to come and help them escape the injustice they imposed upon and so persistently maintained over the Irish Catholic people THEIR BAD FAITH Some of the independent anthracite operators are not acting in good faith with the striking miners who as soon as arbitration was accepted returned to resume work These operators waive nor concede nothing but demand com pliance with orders and conditions virtual abandonment of the United Mine Workers Unionbe fore allowing the strikers to resume work As it was against such an attitude of the operators the miners struck they refuse to comply with it now and the strike is really still on at such mines These operators must have peculiar notions of honor and justice After the acceptance of arbitration of differences the miners promptly returned to work as before the strike pending the decision of arbitrators as President Mitchell agreed but these operators show no disposition to comply with their pledge to esume as before the strike These Aerators must be made to understand that the miners were not shipped and the American public will not stand for any such dishonorable course as they are pursuing At the trust mines there is no rouble work being resumed as ast as the mines can be put in coil lition and the output and shipments of coal are increasing daily It is up to the railroadanthracite magnates to pull their independent Hies into line lest the public con lude that the irresponsible dis urbing element in the anthracite region unot the labor unions tier all IJ f J Aii i f 1 The Balfour Ministry is having a lively time in Parliament notwith standing new rules adopted with the view of expediting business by throttling the opposition The Irish Nationalists have so mastered the new rules as to hamper pro ceedings and after seven days only eleven lines of the Educational bill have passed Mr Balfour threatens closure but is deterred by fear bl aggravating the situaion uniting the opposition to the Government and the desertion of supporters which would defeat closure open the way for amendments indefinite discussion and the rejection of the bill or its passage as revised by the opposition either of which would be a Government defeat The discussion of the bond issue to be voted on next Tuesday has developed no new features If you favor better streets and sewers to improve develop and extend the city giving employment to hun dreds of workmen for the next three years vote yeson the bond issue The city certainly needs what the bonds are to be issued for and three years of busi ness for our contractors and work for our people can hardly be con strued into such a detriment to the community as to justify a vote against the bonds Thats the way it appears to us our view not being blurred by political favoritism or animus The attempt to ring in the A P A issue to arouse religious bitter ness in the political campaign fis ridiculous and will reacton its pro moters specially 1is this true in regard to Judge Barker Whatever may be charged against him noth fug in his entire official career indicates intolerance to any one on account of religion The A P A issue is not in this campaign and those who seek to introduce it will only lose votes for their candidates Denmark pleaded with the United States for fifty years to buy her West Indies islands and when the United States finally agreed and the bill of sale is drawn up Denmark refused to sell Well Uncle Sam will see to it that no other government buys those islands Right Rev Bishop Montgomery of Los Angeles who has been appointed Coadjutor to Archbishop Riordan of San Francisco is a Kentuckian and as his name india dates is of Irish ancestry He was ordained in 1878 and consecrated Bishop in 1894 That the British Government is apprehensive of results of coercion in Ireland is revealed by the pro hibition of shipments of arms and ammunition into Ireland under pain of

Was Represented in the Jasper Greens at New Orleans PREDICTED FAIRt Judge Matt ODohertys excellent ad dress at the opening ct the Irish fair Monday night is worth perusal It is as follows It appears to have become the rule that whatever the nature of the celebration whether it be to commemorate sonic great event of the past to inaugurate some worthy undertaking of the present or to prepare for its establishment in the future speechmaking like a motion to adjouru is always lnprder The banquets of the brewers the bakers or the candle stick makers is no more considered com plete without speechmaking than is that of the life insurance agents the fire in surance agents the undertakerswho should more properly be called overtakers orthe doctors Indeed there seems to be no end to the desire to hear much less to the disposition to make speeches on all occasions It is the one passion in man and perhaps iu woman too which knows no satiety- It is already announced in the public press that the telephone men whom you would naturally suppose are or ought to be tired hearing themselves and others talk are to meet here in convention tomorrow without their telephones and for the purpose of having a heart to heart talk as it were Unquestionably of all the people in the World the American people are not only the greatest but the best talkers and I half way suspect that of all Americans the IrishAmericans take the lead and among the rrish Americans wholove to talk and be talked to I think Kentucky Irish pmericans hold the first place There is good reason for this Henry Clay once declared that Kentucky was the Ireland of America He saw in the luxuriant soil of the Bluegrass in the waving meadows and the magnificent mountain scenery of Kentucky in her rivers and streams and in the blue sky above them Irelands1 fadeless beauty re flected as in a mirror but it was not in the soil or climate alone that the great commoner saw the semblance His mind went further and deeper He saw in that generous hospitality which has made Kentucky famous today in the eloquence of the men in their courage and bravery and in the beauty and purity of its women the points of resemblance he re ferred to He also was familiar with the history of the Stateand knew the honorable part that Ireland had taken in that history We find in Collins History of Kentucky that the first white man to enter the borders of this State was John McBride in 1745 when he paddled his canoe as Collins expressed it up the Kentucky river Three distinguished Irishmen accompanied Daniel Boone into the Dark and Bloody Ground and three others laid the foundation for the mag nificent city of Louisville Indeed it has been observed that the names in Kentucky were so distinctively Irish in the early part of the century that they could almost be mistaken for a list of voters in South Boston Among the huntsmen from Kentucky who fought under Jackson with the Jasper Greens at New Orleans were t4 uaasdso1 those same Irishmen The history of Irishmen in Kentucky does not materially differ from that of Weir kindred elscwhers We know that at the close of the civil war it was a Ken tucky IrishAmerican who sang the requiem ot victor and vanquished in language which will 1 fseverdleThe Bivouac of the Deadt=Mr Theodore pHara the meet WllIJejyet withal the most graceful aadnbeaatiftil poem that has everetEWMtMl MM the brain or pen of maH So WtoMt r so bwatifal tkat by order ef the Oar jiol country you find it in bronze in every national cemetery throughout the laud But my friends the great share which IrishAmericans took in the accomplishment of the liberties and independence of America must forever remain the proud inheritance of the race The Lexington of the Seas as it is called was fought by the OBriens of Maine whose descendants to this hour occupy honorable and distinguished positions in the Pine Tree State and Commodore John Barry who has been justly called the father of the American navy The close of the war of independence found Stephen Moylan commander of the dra goons and Hand Adjutant General of the American army both natives of Ireland But if you wish to know the honorable men of your blood and race that took part in that war you must consult the official records of the British Government James Galloway a Pennsylvania Tory testified on examination before the House of Parliament that upward of onehalf of the amy that followed Washington were natives of Ireland onefourth he testi I fied were Americans andthe other fourth I made up of Scotch and English In that same examination Gen Robertson a British General who had seen a twenty year service in America testified that he bed it from Gen Lee that at least one ballot the rebel army were natives of Ireland This fIs indeed something to be proud of I would consume more ofyour time than I have aright to do did Iproceed further along this line I simply wish to express the hope that this fair so auspi ciously begun may be the grand success its promoters hope it to be I believe the assurance that they have given that it will be creditable to the race whose name is used in connection with it will be faithfully kept lam anxious that itI shall be kept for you know that critics especially when there is anything Irish to be discussed abound in the land Only a few days ago I saw in one of our leading newspapers an editorial written by a man who evidently meant to be fair but who has forgotten that no man should ever write or speak upon a subject which he does not take the trouble to under stand This writer discovered a great weakness in the national character of the rice and one I believe which in his judgment almost disqualified them for selfgovernment and what do you sup pose it was Simply because they had had the temerity to sympathize with the Boers during the Boer war The leaders of the Irish party in Parliament did during the progress of the war fro all in their power to impede its progress and boldly proclaimed their sympathies with the brave Boers These Irish representa tives may have acted most indiscreetly but if our critic had reflected a moment he would have remembered that the Irish people in so sympathizing with the Boers when their own interests were jeopardized thereby were but following the example of the Irish people in 1776 and again in 1812 when they openly and defiantly sympathized with America Do you not remember when the Earl ci Effingham one of the few British officers who seemed to have some soul left in him resigned from the British army be cause he would not fight against the American people was given a public re ception in the city of Dublin and a vote of thanks given to him by the people for his brave act And a few days latter a meeting of the Merchants Guild of Dub lin was held and a vote of thanks was given not only to the Earl of Effingham for his bravery m declining to use his sword against the lives and liberties of America but gave thanks as well to those British peers who had voted against the act placing restraints upon the Ameri- Cans In 1775 to show you how indiscreet these Irishmen have always been in al ways preferring principle to pelf there was a bill introduced in the British Par liament for the purpose of considering what might be done for the promotion of the interests of the fisheries of Great Britain and Ireland and an amendment was offered to that bill by the British Parliament designed to give to Ireland some of the benefits which it was pre sumed the war then Imminent between America and England would take away from the American people The great Irishman Edmund Burke upon the floor of the British Parliament thanked Mr North for the little benefit he meant to confer upon Ireland but he took occa tioa to say that while he was zealous for Irelands welfare he would not accept any benefit that might be conferred upon Ireland at the expense of America that he woald father Irefaad should never re naive the contee sated cwtllaJuato a n r 0 r it should be taken from a people who were then if possible more oppressed than were the people of Ireland I So that the Irishmen of the present day in Parliament have worthy examples for conduct which our critic in one of our daily Louisville papers seems to consider a grave defect in their character Ireland has never compromised with dis honor She never has and never will sacrifice a principle Like some grand mountain upon whose rockcrowned heights the storms of cen turies have beaten in vain a rent here and a scar there which the springs ver dure may hide from view alone attest ing the fierceness of the tempests wrath Irelandemerges from the storms of cen turies battlescarred indeed but bold proud and defiant as she was ere the tempests that have wasted their fury upon her first gathered in darkness above her headI trust that the fair which we tonight inaugurate will be a success and that it may contribute as it should to make Irishmen and their descendants who shall visit it proud of that Celtic blood and of- The grand old race apaceHoweveri MIKE EQANS RETURN Mike Egan a wMl known contractor and bridge builder is visiting

As a Fuel Will Bo Cheaperj Than Coal Will Sell the Patent Right to Parties in Other States TALKS ABOUT HIS GREAT DISCOVERY It recently became known to a small circle of friends that Lieut Ed Heffernan of the local police force had struck it rich and all owing to an invention for LIEUTENANT ED HEFFERNAN which he has applied for a patent It is a device for compressing leaves into marketable bricks and selling them for fuel Lieut Heffernan has his laboratory in the rear of his house 2209 Rowan street and recently much of his time has beeu spent in experimenting on the new fuelSit down me bold bucko said Ed when a representative of the Kentucky Irish American called on him the other day Ohits news you want Well Ive tried to keep this thing secret till I get my patent but Ill tell you something about it because you come from the Ken tucky Irish American You see I had been reading a great deal about the coal strike and how people were put out bf it They resorted to the use of bricks Foaked in coal oil I knew the oil would burn but the bricks would not I knew leaves would burn I see them being burned every day in the fall People burn them ou the streets in the yards aud on the commons just to get rid of them There is an Italian chemist Pietro Sulllvani visiting in the city and from him I got general analysis of leaves I found they were nearly pure carbon when dry He also told me that the coal supply of the entire world was made up more or less of leaves or of vegetation of some sort that has rotted and sunk into the earth maybe lying there for centuries until dug out by the hand of man All these centuries nature has been doing her work of creating carbon out of these leaves It is a good thing often to help nature along I conceived the idea of com pressing the dead leaves that fall from the trees into compact shape about the size of an ordinary brick The machine for doing this work is completed and is now in operation Of course it is a small one but I intend to have one made of ten times the capacity as soon as I get my patent One cents worth of crude petroleum will serve to convert 200 of these bricks into inflammable matter that will give out an intense peat One brick if handled properly will heat a tbree roomed cottage during an entire day in addition to cooking and washing So you sec what advantage this will be to poor people The leaves says you Sure I can can get all the leaves I want for the ask lug now Maybe next year after Im making big money people will want to sell me leaves Just now I can get all I want for the asking The Park Commissioners are glad to have me come and get the leaves that are falling The labor of gathering them and compressing them coats little Jf I have good luck this time next year Ill be drawing down 200 a day over and above expenses Then I will sell the right to manufacture these leaf bricks to reliable parties in other States providing the r allow me a good price and a suitable royalty No1 do not intend to leave the police force That is my life work The manufacture of this new fuel I expect to carry on for pleasure to a great extent Of course I want money Everybody does but I dont want it because it is that much gold or that much silver I want to see how much good I can do with it If a Scotchman can give away millions to establish free libraries an Irish millionaire ought to be able to give poor people something to eat They cant eat libraries Im forming a stock company now but Ill hold the greater part of the stock My brother Jim is in it with me and Mayor Grainger Harry Brennan Ed Tierney Lee Suter and Jack Shea I tell you well all be millionaires TRINITY TO ENTERTAIN Trinity Coioil V M I have are ranged to give a euchre and dance atthe deb bowseon the evening of Wednesday

the Demo cratic candidate to succeed himself was seen by a representative of the Kentucky Irish American one day during the week andasked how much truth there was in the story now being circulated to

School Board I have never seen a representative of the American Book Company that I know of neither have I been approached by letter or in any other way by a representative of that company I have tried to do my best for the people since I have been in the School Board and if I am reelected will continue to use J my best endeavors in the cause of tbe public schools Mr Norton has made a capable

was by telephone A young lady wanted to offer a bid on Dan Weber She offered 110 Her name is withheld for obvious reasons Dan is worth at least thirty cents more thanthat Another young lady wrote- I bid 250 on Andy Baurla He is such a dear sweet thing and I would consider him cheap at any price even if he did not own a row of houses and was building others I want Andy Address me at Eighteenth and Madison streets President Frank Murphy also came in for a fair share of consideration He seems to be a goner The widows are after him One of then writes Dear Mr Kentucky Irish American I dont know you but I do know Mrs Kentucky Irish American and she can tell you all about me I am a widow and without children I am young not yet thirty and I have beeu told that I am above the average on good looks

wish I knew whether he was twentyfive or eighty years old If I were certain about his age I might bid 100 for him A Duncan street girl has offered 300 for Pat Bannon Jr She thinks she will get him
