Isle Jeff Do Angclis Now Opera Rc celvcs a Scorlug The Irish Americans Warned to Show Their Displeasure at Such Caricatures THE CRUSADE AGAINST BUFFOONERY i Nationul President James E Dolan of the Ancient Order of Hibernians is veryI much in earnest in the fight that is being waged against stage Irishmen of the present day The following communica tion from Mr Dolan to the editor of theII KentuckyIrish American is selfexplana torySyracuse N Y Nov 10 1902 j Editor Kentucky Irish American I in close for your consideration interview published in Syracuse Daily Journal I invite your hearty cooperation and assistance in our efforts to drive forever from the American stage the buffoon stage IrjshmanVand from the columns ofI newspapers ridiculous cartoons which are an insult to the Irish race I am ofI the belief that this long existing evil can be speedily remedied if prominent citi zens and journals throughout the country will interest themselves in the worthy I cause We are justified if no better rem edy presents itself in requesting our peoI pie to withhold their patronage from theaters and amusement lls where1 such ridiculous plays and sketches ate toler ated With best wishes J remain yours truly J E DOWN National President The interview Mr Dolanspeaks of in full is as follows James E Dolan President of the national association of the Ancient Order of Hibernians expressed himself quite forcibly over the performance ot the Emerald Isle given at the Wieting Opera House He referred first to a resolution passed at the last national convention fit Denver which reads j it e1iI Wl r 3fcWWL tkeqalivadouora more healthyi public sentiment wIth regard to stage and news paper caricature of our race We must not rest until the buffoon stage Irish man and prevalent newspaper caricature be driven frpm public view Then Mr Dolan went on to dissect the play and said that it was his duty to see that the above rrecommendation of the national association be carried out He saidRegarding the singing and music in The Emerald Isle I have no criticism to make as I dQ not consider myself a competent judge of such matters It isI a well known fact that our Irish citizens are now and always have been enthusi astic patrons of our local theaters They recognize in the stage a wonderful educator when conducted along proper q linesTrue to their nationality many jour neyed to the theater to witness the production of the Emerald Isle expecting that anything from the pen of the greatt Sullivan would be elegant and instruc tive Great indeed was their surprise when they found that parts of the so called opera were devoted to a ridiculous caricaturing of their race The male members of the chorus were costumed and made up in a most ridiculous man ncr and they were frequently referred to by Jefferson De Augelis as them Hibernians which is the name of a society having a membership of nearly 200000 in this country whose aims aud objects are for the advancement and development of all that is noble in the Irish character The society has con tributed most liberally and loyally toward the upbuilding and advancement of this great nation firad its members no doubt will deeply regret the insult offered them by calling such asIhave alluded to by their name Mr De Angelis during the progress of the play assumes to impersonate a typi cal Irishman by putting on stage whis kers and distorting his face The day has long since past when legitimate comedians are obliged to resort to such methods while portraying a charactery Disgusting indeed are such methods to those familiar with the people of the Enierald Me their mode of living style of dress etc for iitis a well known fact that the city of Dublin and I may men Ltionother cities in Ireland is known to be one of the most fashionable cities inc the world Nowhere can te found better dressed men If what we witnessed last evening was a correct impersonation of the typical Irish gentleman the author must have forgotten the chief characteristic of the Irish race He must have forgotten that such men as Wolfe Tone Robert Emmet Edwiu Burke Oliver Goldsmith Lord Edward itzgeral4v john Mitchell Chas Stewart Parnell and in bur own land W Bourke Cockran and many other Irish American citizens prominent in art in literature and in sciencej are notac cofdiBgto the author riI may add the 1 iaaaager bf the operaHo be considered 88 typical Irian gentlemen I luave only wprdii of praise for Join 14who baa wide the Witting k Opera House what it is today a pleasure resort where only the best and most wholesome productions are tolerated 1 desire only to criticise such portion of this particular production and all other pioduclions which offer insult to people no matter of what nationality As De Angells is expected in Louis ville this season with The Emerald Isle to iit will be well for local Irish Americans to bear Mr Dolans words in mind If Mr De Angelis and the man agers of theatrical companies find that buffoon stage Irishmen are not wanted something better will soon be given them MUCH ENTHUSIASM Ev ked at the Meeting of Di vision 1 Ancient Order of Hibernians Division 1 Ancient

IRISH AMERICAN 326 West Qreea Street T r mTRADES COUNCIL LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY NOVEMBER 15 1902 WHERE ARE THEY AT The statement of the anthracit coal operators has been given the commission by President Baer of the Reading railway It is merely a general denial of the statemen for the miners by Presiden Mitchell except that Baer protest against any recognition whatever k of the United Mine Workers anc questions the right of the commis- sionE to do so although the opera tors virtually recognized the miners union when they accepted the signatures of Mitchell and his to the proposition for a TIassociates both parties agreeing to accept the award and resumed operations in their mines The differences between the operators and miners was just what the commission was appointed to investigate and pass upon and further the commission will also decide how and by whom the parties to the controversy operators and miners shall be represented Baers statement does not show the position of the operators except that they persist in declining to recognize the right of the miners to do what the operators have done and are doingthat is organize and net together through chosen representatives The anthracite com panies are united in a combination with President Baer and others as representatives and spokesmen to present the case for all the com panies but deny to the miners the right to organize a union with President Mitchell and others as representatives and spokesmen to present the case for all the miners The inconsistency and injustice of the operators protest is so manifest as to cause doubt of their sincerity in agreeing to submit the matters in dispute to a commission Any investigation that denied either party equal and full representation and hearing would be a farce and a decision based on such onesided proceeding would be unjust Yet from the course of the operators and their protests against the miners union being recognized in any manner by the commission thus depriving the miners of all representation it seems that was the kind of investigation and decision they expected when they agreed to refer the matter to the commissionThe however will decide that point as well as others involved and the operators will have to submit or kick out of their agreement to accept the commissions award The persistent obstinacy of the operators suggests the query Where are they at OENEROUSCATHOLICS The growth of the Catholic Church in the West is but the re flection of the progressive prosper ity of the Catholic settlers of that part of our county Churches schools institutions are being built equal to those of other sections tof the country and it is the Western Catholics who pay for them In Denver ground has been broken for a Cathedral to cost 300000 and it is intended that it shall be free of debt whew completed The site one of the most desirable in the city near the State Capitol is 2 2thegift of Messrs Campion Brown and Sheedy and the subscriptions and funds available already amount to 90000 Thus before beginning the work nearly onehalf the cost has been donated voluntarily by a Jew wealthy Catholics in the vicm- Tiy of Denver Right Rev Bishop Matz predicts that as the work z progresses and the Catholics of Colorado are called upon they will o 0 o 1 respond promptly and generousl with the money to pay for it so that when completed the Cathe dral will be free of debt and maybe consecrated The Denver Cathedral will be the largest and fines church building in the Far West with the possible exception of San Francisco EVEN TO THE TIMES We believe in giving the Devi his due There is altogether too much racket in labor circles over the Times offer of a prize for the most popular trades unionist The Times has a right to offer a prize for the most popular trades unionist or the most popular anything else workingmen have a right to con test or not contest for the prize and everyone has a right to approve or disapprove of it and give reasons therefor Indorsement or condemnation of a newspaper editorial or other publication is ia matter for public controversy We have jumped on the Times for its editorial or other matter published by it when deserved and may do so again Were the con demnation of the Times proposed prize on this basis it would be within the right of the public But when the strike or lockout of union printers on the Times years age is recalled and words so used as tc convey the impression that the Times in its dealings with and treatment of its employes is an enemy of organized labor at unjust falsehood is implied There is no occasion to recall the trouble between the union and the Times of years ago besides it is a viola tion of good faith which the union printers can not approve The fight between the Typographical Union and the Times was long and fierce but when the parties there tothe Typographical Union and the Times management mutually accepted and signed terms of settle ment that fight ended then and there Those terms of settlement have been faithfully lived up to by both parties ever since The Times became and has remained strictly union in every department the relations have been amicable and satisfactory with no occasion forcomplaintWhatever may be said of the position of the Times editorially and otherwise in its dealings wits labor it is strictly arid thoroughly union This much in justice to the Times if we do occasionally give it a roast for its editorial and other breaks From adversity American genius evolves new benefits from hitherto useless and pestiferous sources In various parts of the country there are immense tracts of bogs and swamps unfit for tilling and unin habitable being breeding spots of disease and annoying insects and reptiles The shortage of fuel re sulting from the anthrncitestrike- promptedscieuists to investiga tion and experiments in the swampy regions resulting in the discovery of vast beds of muck peat and other deposits which can be supplied cheaply to the public for fuel lighting building paving polishing painting and explosives Corporations are being formed to develop these new discoveries and it is claimed they will remove all future apprehensions of fuel faro ine in this country an the coal monopoly Is at an end since the fuel supply is illimitable The rubber combine disregard lug the fate of the anthracite com blue announcers its purpose not to reCOgnize organized laborm r 6 ployes in two of its factories havI ing formed unions and presented scales of wages for approval wet all summarily discharged and the factories closed down indefinitely We all have to live and learn but even in this free country som employers uoted for their hitch gence have to go through an order before they can be convinced tbey do not own the earth and al1 therein that even workingmen have inalienable rights which millionaires are bound to respect The rubber combine is likely to have some of the starch taken out of it if its employes stand firm and conduct their conflict peaceably and wisely Too much politics defeated tbe bond issue and the citys progres and development is postponed It is notable also that the candidate of the party which opposed the bonds for political effect wen down in defeat The bond issu was iin no sense a political issue I and while the drawing of part lines oh the question prevented its receiving the necessary twothird majority the politicians who mad it a party question received a re buke that may prove beneficial in the future to the city and the politicians alike Politicians shoulc stick to their political issues and allow the citys interests and busi ness to be decided on their merit outside of partisanism The American railroads are add ing to the amazement of European regarding this country The twentyhour run from New York to Chicago is followed up by a train from Chicago to New Orlean in thirty hours Now a specia during the sessions of

heretofore specia limited Kaiser William is on a visit tto his uncle King Edward and there are rumors as to the real purpose of the social call As the King of Portugal is also to visit England shortly it is hinted that English yearning for Delagoa bay and Portuguese territory on the eastern coast of Africa giving an ocean outlet for the recently acquired Boer country is to be gratified with Germany a party to the deal Ridicule of political opponents may be all right but it is going beyond the limit of decency when a man is down with a probably fatal illness to deride his uncon scious ravings and the solicitude of his wife and family as was done by a Chicago paper last week in referring to a report from the sick room of Gov Yates Judge Matt ODoherty retires after a brief but clean and honored

ReEnlisted For Another Term TALKS ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE MartinPahey a popular youngIrish American of this city has returned from the Philippines where he served in the United States army and isuow at his former home on Barret avenue Marty as he is familiarly called by his friends has grown stalwart and handsome during his three years in the army and has reo enlisted for another term of three years To a representative of the Kentucky Irish American he said one night recently- I hardly know what I can tell you that would be new so much has been written of the United States army in the Philippines A great deal of what has been written is untrue If you want to know something about myself that I can tell you I am not a hero in any sense of word In fact during my three years of service I never saw an enemy let alone shoot at one waseighteen years old when I enlisted on October 19 1899 I was assigned to Company L Tenth In fantry I was sent to Fort Crook i Nebraska where I wasdrilled and drilled thoroughly Later I was sent to Fort Mackenzie Wyo and remained there until the spring of 1901 My regiment was then sent to the Philippines and during the whole of our staythere we were quartered on the Island of Mindanao one of the most southern islands of the Philippine group On our return we came by way of Manila a four days sail from Mindanao We remained four days in Manila and then 900 of us were put aboard the United States army trans port Logan and brought home to the States On the way home we stopped at Nagasaki Japan We were well treated always otherwise I would not have reenlisted We had good substantial food and plenty of it and we could not have had better medical attention There were six Kentuckians in my company but I was the only one from Louisville The native Filipinos are brown skinned people Their features are fcry fine The majority of the people are small They are a religious people in sonic ways but they are also inveterate gamblers They all go to church on Sunday and then hurry home for their game roosters Rooster fighting occupies the remainder of the day They have a number of handsome churches in Manila but elsewhere they are not much to boast of The majority of the people seem pleased with American rule and I believe the islands will soon be pacified The climate of Mindanao is excellent though mosquitoes are plentiful One can sleep under a blanket every night during the year and I was not inconvenienced by the heat except when we were on long marches in the hills The main food of the Filipinos is rice and fish Of course we got fresh beef and mutton from Australia and plenty of good fresh bread The native drink is tuba a liquor drawn from the cocoanut tree it is very sweet when first drawn but becomes strong after twentyfour hours and is intoxicating The poorer class of people live in huts made of nipa add bamboo The nips is like a palm leaf and is sewed on bamboo strips We only lost two men from our com pany while I Vas away One was drowned accidentally and the other James Harlan had been sent out to help erect a telephone line He was ambushed by the natives and cut to pieces Several detachments from onr company went in search of the band but only one Filipino was found Of course he was shot I was not in any of the detachments and took no part in the search On our return home we were kept in quarantine at Angels Island outside the Golden Gate and the last night there we bad a minstrel show The performers were all soldiers and the officers and their wives all attended and ebjoyed the fun Before coming to Louisville I went to Fort Thomas and reenlisted and I am now assigned to Company C Third Infantry lam home now on a furlough but I have to return to Fort Thomas next Tuesday NEW CHURCH AT HOPKINSV1LLE

11iJU D GRAND TRIBUTE tt To the Worth of Judge Matt ODoherty Paid ByJudge Henry S Barker in Presenting a Handsome Portrait t- Y t Hundreds of Friends of the Able IrishAmerican Jurist Crowded the Court- Room and Were Moved By the Eloquent Speech i An Appropriate Gift From Admiring Friends Now Adorns the Court Room J Over Which Judge ODoherty Is the Presiding Spirit + 4 Seldom if ever was such a crowd at tracted to the Court House as attended there last Monday The occasion was the presentation to Judge Matt ODoherty fan oil portrait of himself The portrait was a gift of a number of Judge ODohertys friends andwas painted for them by A O Revenaugh the most celebrated portrait painter of the Mississippi Valley The oil portrait of Judge ODpherty was hung in the Court House Common Pleas Division No2 on Saturday The hour for the presentation was set for iO oclock Monday morning but long before that hour hundreds of friends of Judge ODoherty had assembled in the courtroom to do honor to him and those who were to take part iin thefotnlal pre sentation The big bell at the City Hall had not ceased clanging the stroke of ten when Judge ODoherty entered the court room but Judge Barker was there ahead of him and when the last stroke of 10 oclock died Judge Barker said Judge ODoherty I bear with me1 this morning a very pleasant and a very difficult commission pleasant because I esteem it an honor to have my name linked with yours even slightly and tem porarily Difficult because the opportunity afforded me calls forthe exercise of powers to which 1 lay no claim I have been deputed byalarge circle of your ardent friends and admirers to present to you and to the public Q testi menial of their love for yourself and their admiration for your character as a judicial magistrate They have caused to be painted by the hand of genuis this picture which hangs upon the wall df the court over which you have presided with so much dignity and honor and in accordance with a beautiful custom that has grown up at this liar they propose that this picture shall hang there while the court endures and they believe and they bid me say that in thus adorning the walls of this temple of the law they present to the public the lineaments of a Judge who was just without arrogance who was honest without pride and who was firm in the discharge of his duly without cruelty Scarcely a year ago the Governor of the Commonwealth Kentucky in the exercise of Iris prerogative appointed you to the office of Judge of this court Those of us who bad the honor to stand within the charmed circle of your acquaintance knew then what the public M well mows now that the manner in which you would discharge the duties incumbent upon you would reflect im measurable credit upon the wisdom of your appointment Your elevation to the bench and the splendid manner in which you have adorned it has been pecullarlygratifying to the IrishAmericans than whom we have no more worthy or patriotic citizens They are gratified at your eleva tion because they see In it perhaps the somewhat tardy recognition of the great debt which the country owes to Irish AmericansThis apt the time nor the place to speak jof tile brilliant page in our COMH trys history but I may be pardoned ifi I My In paaainK that the deeds of Irishmen upon American soil constitute a richer inheritance for pur posterity than all the gold ever dug from the bowels of ouc jalaee Wherever the battles of the republic have been fought there Irish valor has been found Intlte forpfrontpf tBiBKraggle for lhff

withi Taylor and Scott they captured the halls of the Montezumas and added an empire to the domain of our country with Phil Sheridan they galloped upon his wild mad ride to Winchester and to victory and with 1at Cleburne they stormed over the bloody battlements of Franklin not to victory but to death and a herps grave instead i The contribution of Ireland to Amer ica can not be told Jnwords or expressed In figures 7 T1 Do we seek for beauty then Irish womanhood like the fair Hesperian tree is laden with blooming gold Do we need a champion Irish eloquence stirs the heart like the blast of a bugle Do we want for wisdom Irish intelligence illuminates the councils of the nation Do we need defenders Irish blood is poured out like water upon the altar of liberty IISlr standing in this presence and in this court belonging to the race that calls itself AngloSaxon and which wor ships only at Protestant altars my heart swells with pride with love and with gratitude when I feel that itt a country thus consecrated by Irish sacrifice ho Irishman to bold an office needs to forget the land that holds the ashes of his fathers or betray the religion which be learned to lisp at his mothers knee Sir it is an awful thing to be a Judge In some sense and I speak it with becoming awe null reverence a Judge is theVicegerent of God upon earth It is lais to deal out justice between man and man and justice is the sublimest attri bute of the Almighty Wde be to that agent then who juggles with the de crees ofa principal of whom it it written The judgments offthe Lord are true and righteousaUogethir1 But yourudictalI I career is safe With you the administration of the law Ui its Integrity without fear and without favor has ever been the first and highest consideration Tfou have not been swept on the one hand by maudlin sentiment into decreeing al us to the poor out of the pockets of the rich j por have you on the other hand been awed by the frowns of power into withholding from the weak the jud ment which was his due In this coi rt there has been no one so high as t be above the restraint of the law and n this court there has been no one so ow as to be beneath its protecting influet ccsTrulyitcanb said of you sir bat you ever held the scales of justice with so firm a hand that not even the eye of envy could see it tremble in the baance and you deserve to heat

tithe of them I can only say my friends to one and all that I thank you from my heart for this latest evidence of your kindness and good will and beg to offer to each of you the assurance of my lasting gratitude I Both before and after the presentation the portrait was much admired From the standpoint of Judge ODohcrtys friends who ire not artists it is a speak ing likeness It could not be better It is a portrait of Kentuckys foremost jurist in his most becoming mood neither mirthful nor sorrowful lIe is as It were thinking out some legal problem The handsome gilt frame sur rounding the portrait is a fitting embel lishment for a work of art that it is hoped will long adorn the Court House and will be pointed to with pride by the Irish and InshAtnericans of Louisville for years to Some Judge ODoherty has been on the bench less than a year But he lies in that time made a creditable record for himsel- fJudgeODoherity is a living exemplifi cation of the dignity of labor He was

to the satisfaction of his friends Before his attorneyshasalso offered him the use 6f their law library Mr ODoherty took advantage of it studied law and when his time expired as deputy clerk hung out his shins thattimeascendantJudge ODdherty has always been in terested in politics though he has never been a politician In 1880 he was the Republican nominee for Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky At that time Ken tucky was hopelessly Democratic When nominatedforsilveritesinfirst to espouse the cause of free silver He sought no office then nor has lie Legislaturepon the Jefferson Circuit Court
