faith and for her attachment to the Holy See Her history is the history of true patriot ism and true Christian heroism From the earliest days when StFatrick brought to her the light of faith up to our present time her children have given such an ex ample of love foe their native land and of fidelity to their holy religion as to de serve the admiration of the whole Catho tic world Truly a profound sentiment of religion and patriotism has always been phaiacteristic of the Irish nation It was this sentiment which gave courage and strength to your glorious ancestors who during a long period of trials and sorrows resisted valiantly the seductions of apostasy It was this sentiment which led them like the first martyrs of the church to sacrifice their lives rather thanI rebel against their holy religion ii- is itI this sentiment that you have inherited from your fathers which even in our days renders the Irish people distin guished for their honesty their integrity and their loyalty to church and country Hence if the history of Ireland Isas we may say an unbroken series of perpetual trials and sorrows it is also ft beautiful panorama of religious and civic heroism The distinguished men and exemplar- Christians who from the days of old hav adorned Ireland with noble deeds are well known to the readers of history Ireland therefore has a right to pur love r and esteem Gentlemen

Many Crimes Committed by Sergeant Sheridan and Accomplices British Government Admits Charges Made by the Irish Party SECRETARY WYHDHAMS APOLOGY Sheridan the clever detective officer became a villain in exercising his profes sion and influenced and dazzled some young men by the force of his character and ability Such was the apology of the Chief Sec retary for Ireland Mr Wyndham for a series of police infamies which if they had occurred in Russia Turkey Ger many or France would have evoked thee fierce indignation of the British people says the Irish World Sheridan was a Sergeant in the Royal Irish Constabulary He was stationed for short periods in numerous parishes in Ire land and his arrival in any parish was instantly followed by an out break of crime and by the conviction of the supposed lawbreakers All the crimes were committed by Sheridan him self aided by accomplices in the police force who joined the scoundrel in swearing away the liberties of innocent men but the rogues fell out and as a result of the resolutions which followed Sheridan was dismissed from the public service January 1 1901 The Government admit all the charges made by the Irish party They admit that Sheridan and his brother policemen committed the crimes including the mutilation of dumb animals and tbey admit that with a view to securing re wards and promotion these ruffians were also guilty of infamous perjury in secur ing the conviction of absolutely innocent people who were sent to prison for lengthened periods But they refuse to prosecute the miscreants who committed such unspeakable atrodtlesJThe Government know that such a proceeding would demonstrate 5Ji the worldttat1hese horr1Me t ntletiHi are part of the system of government of Ireland and they shirk the challenge After his dismissal Sheridan wrote to all the leading newspapers defying the Govern went to take actionhe even went to the lobby of the House of Commons and to dozens of members of Parliament he repeated the challenge He is now in America But more surprising facts re main Some of the victim of the police plots have been compensated The policemen who committed the crimes and who swore away the liberties of innocent men were also rewarded They received rewards at the time of the convictions and even when their infamies were brought home to them they were not dismissed from the public sere ice Two were allowed to retire and the third is still in the police force and is still drawing his salary Of the two who were allowed to retire Constable Reid actually received from the Government what they called a compassionate allowance of 250 and Constable Keegan no less than 1000 Contrast the attitude of the Govern ment in Ireland with their attitude in London During the very week that the Sheridan case was last being debated in the House of Commons a constable in the North London Police Court named Will lam Rolls accused a laboring man named Wbeelerbread of loitering with intent to commit a felony The Magistrates listened to the prisoners story and at once discharged him and although there was not a particle of evidence against the Londonconstable except that of the ac cused man the constable was forthwith taken into custody prosecuted for per jury convicted and sentenced to five years penal servitude Comment is need lessThe Sheridan revelations are doubtless a new experience with the present gen eration of Englishmen but they are an old story with Irishmen Every year during the past century found police agents in Ireland organizing conspire des inventing crimes and drawing rewards every county In Ireland has its Sheridans at thlsday Only a few years ago William OBrien M P charged the head of the detective force in Ireland with being persistently engaged in the perpetration of abominable and unmentionable crimes The Government of the day did their best td save their official from con viction and to persecute and ruin OBrien but the conspiracy collapsed and In spector Preach and other Government t officials were sent to penallservitude T go no furthertack than Balfours Chief Secretaryship it is an Incontrovertible e fact that Head Constable Whelahan wasI during that period accidentally shot dea at Llsdoonvarna County Clare in course ofa moonlighting raid which he had himself organized and that ii- f I 1890 Constable Palmer who was caught redhanded at similar outrages in Shan bellymoore County Tipperary and con victed was allowed by the Governments escape to Atnwica and Up effort was ever made by the GovratttebtteDecvre o q d 0 his extradition Ser M Sullivan of Mulranny County 14e j was proved during the Chief Secr hip of Gerald Balfour to have Benf saey to lads iin that district to induce bem to commit outrages and to have tH ged in the covering letter the name of local National ist leader but he is stir twined in the police force despite tlifect that all the recognized handwriting eSperts in Eng land swore positively to plain vans guilt The Government deliowttely sheltered and shielded him and itSfequiresi no wild imagination to conch dMhat there are many other policemen Ireland who have found that oulragimbngering is a game that pays and 1 1sto promotion And despite It all aoui people wonder why the Irish people dojnot exude loy JKThemilitary force armed with repeating Rifles and ball cartridge and under miMtary discipline They have nothing in coSmon with the police force in Englandjjor Scotland for they are maintained nol for the detec tion of crime and tbettdefense of the innocent but for the collection of land rents and for the political purposes of the Government Ireland is notoriously the most crimeless country on the face of the earth and police work there IsI mainly confined to seizing animals found straying on the public roads to attend ing National meetings and to prosecut ing the local and National leaders of tbeI people Outside of loyal Belfast they have little else to doWYet while the population of

Children For Years to Pay Back Rent COMMISSIONERS AT LAST SURPRISED The Strike Commission hearing wit nesses at Scranton has brought out some tearful testimony against the operators- At the session held Tuesday morning a Hungarian Henry Coll a Markle miner told how his family including his motherin law who was a hundred years old were set opt on the road with their household goods He gave a graphic description of how he was injured many times He said one of his legs was no better than a wooden one he had only one eye his heads had been crushed ribs broken and skull fractured The ompany gave him nothing until after he employes took up a collection for im then he was given 50 after being- on the injured list for two years Then followed the most pathetic story yet told the commission The old miner decrepit from many injuries told under Examination of how the eviction was carried on The wife was sick and her 100yearold mother was blind and uu ible to walk The day on which they were thrown out was rainy He took them as best he could to Hazleton seven miles away and placed them in a coldRdamp empty house This was last month when the atmosphere on the Elazleton mountain was quite cold His wife became worse Medical aid was kindly furnished free by a Hazelton doctor but it did not help her much We were greatly worried because of our having been turned out of our house and one night the witness said between sobs she died She diedsaid Judge Gray who was passing to and fro across the room and he quickly turned when he heard the mans last words Yes she died awl Iburied her yester l1a Ui Qr J IwrifC No one cared to crossexamine and i udge Gray said Thai faill Mr Coll and that enough v Mrs Kate Burns of Jeddo was called to the stand during the afternoon and told a story of how she and her two boys worked thirteen years to payoff an ac cumulated house rent and coil bill due to the Markle company the narration of which deeply interested the commissioners She was examined by Lawyer Dar row and in answer to his questions she said her husband was an engineer inside the Markle mines Her husband was killed underground leaving herwith four children the oldest of which was a boy of eight years The company never offered her a penny but the employes gave her about 180 to defray the funeral ex pensesAfter her husband had been killed she moved from her fourroom house into lone containing only two one above the other and for the next six years she struggled as best she could to get along She took in washing scrubbed for the neighbors and once in a while she was given work cleaning the offices of the Markle Company During these six years she kept her children at school and as soon as the eldest was fourteen ears old she sent him to the mines to help earn the daily bread At the end of the first month the lad brought home his wage statement showing that the mother owed 396 for backrent The boys wages for the month bad been taken off the bill and he came home emptybanded She submitted to this and in the course of time her nextIboy was old enough to help earn a living and he too was sent to the colliery Like the older brother the second boy received no pay his earnings being de ducted for rent Tears were by this time gathering in lie witness eyes and when she added that the money she earned for cleaning the Markle office was never given her but kept by the company for tent the commissioners looked at one another In surprise She said it took the three of them thirteen years to make up the debt the mothers earnings from neigh hors being the principal contribution toward the maintenance of the family The debt was cleared in August Dur- Ing the six years from the time her husband was killed until the time the first boy went to work the company never asked her for rent- TiKES111S OLD PLACE Edward Brown a well known young Irishman has returned to his former position with Pat Howard the grocer at twelfth and Kentucky streets This will

falling wall in Cleveland are horrors too frequent in our lawscitiespreventLsuch catastrophes and they are not enforced because officials do not 1 attend to their duty Further such negligent officials as well as the owners and lessees of such property are liable to prosecution for murder The nonenforcement of law is the cause and its rigid enforcement the r only remedy In every city Louis ville not

lost persons maimed and adjoining property is destroyed or I must Louisville also have a holocaust before our officials wake up SHAMES HIS CALLING When a preacher goes into politics he gets one foot into hell said a Washington politician It seems that some preachers discuss ing the labor question get both feet in A divine in Brooklyn in a sermon on a scriptural text re viewed the anthracite strike and labor unions generally His ser mon was simply a jumble of ex aggeration misrepresentation false hood and vituperation And this from the pulpit at Christian wor ship Unless excused because of ignorance of his subject the reverend committed an outrageous libel and if his congregation apprechti such sermons they are equally as ignorant and peculiar Christians as he is a minister of the Gospel 9andthis regardless of the fact that he is a D D and his congregation one of the wealthiest and most fashionable in the country Such preachers should at least follow the shoemakers advice or let alone subjects they do not understand and it may be are too prejudiced to tell the truth about Libel is a grievous wrong anywhere but from the pulpit during divine wor ship it is a sacrilegious outrage that no decent community should tolerate FIRE BOTH The Postmaster General has or dered the dismissal from his depart ment of married women employes whose husbands can support them If anything were needed tp show the wisdom and justice of this order it iis readily at hand in the developments One married woman whose husband is also employed in the department claims exemption because she and her husband have separated on account of his salary of 1800 not being sufficient for their support and she must rely on her salary of 1400 to live They separated since the order was issued and it is clearly a scheme to evade it The proper course Jn1his case i would be for the Postmaster General to summarily fire both of them Perhaps then they might possibly contrive to get along on a trifle less than 3200 per year Besides a husbandwith a salary of 1800 ought to support his wife and a wife ought to be content with less than r400 a year for pin money Newspaper enterprise is commendable but it iis sometimes over done to the extent of the absurd and unjust Recently a report was published that the Right Rev Jaueseaiof Belleville 1 Ill owing i to worry over strife am lghis clergy was BO broken in health III- L t that he would resign and retire to a monastery This hi officially denied in every detail by the Chan cellor of the diocese Again some of the daily papers published the picture of a grand Cathedral with the statement that the Fathers of the Blessed Sacrament were to begin the erection of such a build ing in New York at a cost of 25 000000 explaining that its grand eur was due to the intention to make it the church for the Pope when compelled by persecution to abandon Rome and seek an asylum in the United States This hardly needed denial but to prevent the public being misled the Superior of the Fathers of the Blessed Sacra ment publishes an emphatic repudi ation of the story These lathers have only recently located in New York where they have charge of a small and poor congregation and have neither the purpose nor the means for any such stupendous enterprises as church buildings costing millions That Uncle Sam protects his Indian wards is demonstrated in a case pending in Washington A party named Taylor engaged Indians for a Wild West show the Government requiring bond for the proper care of the Indians and pay ment of their salaries The show was stranded in this city in 1895 and the Indians abandoned in the National Park at Twentyfourth and Main Neighbors and finally the city provided for their wants Mr Bacon agent for the Monon railroad furnished the Indians transportation Co their reservation home He was prompted by sym pathy for Poor Lo though the road subsequently collected the bill from the bondsman He is now pushing the case in Washington for the unpaid salaries of the Indians Doubtless Mr Bacons scalp will be safe should he ever fall into the hands of Blue Beard and his tribe The committee striving to raise money to have a Kentucky exhibit at the St Louis Exposition which our stingy Legislature refused to make an appropriation for deserve every encouragement and assist ance They are imbued with the proper spirit and start right In calling for plans and bids they limit the bidders to Kentucky architects Kentucky materials and Kentucky labor The Kentucky building is to be thoroughly representative of Kentucky genius product and skill It is high time we were demonstrat ing to the world that Kentucky is something more then a whisky dis tillery and tobacco patch and then with proper legislation we may in duce capitalists to

only children who have been murdered that beneficiaries could collect the insurance money If the law is to prohibit everything that furnishes the inducement an opportunity for crime we would not be

MacEvilly Arch bishop of Tuam Ireland died November daystliretDublin Freemans Journal said A great prelate and a good Irishman has passed to the reward of long years spent in the service of God and of his country Through all Ireland the news will be heard with heartfelt sorrow that the Most Rev John MacEvilly Archbishop of Tuam has passed away But among the laity and clergy of his own vast diocese the grief will be as of chil dren for a father The blow fell suddenly at the last Though the venerable pre late had reached the great age of ninety six years his wonderful clearness of in tellect and vigor of body caused his age to be forgotten His diocese Is the largest and the most inaccessible but he was constant in his visitations to the last No in clemency of the seasons no difficulties of access could keep him from the remotest of his flock He officiated regularly in his own beautiful Cathedral in Tuam almost to the last and preached constantly and eloquently from the Cathe dral pulpit in English and iu Irish He had a voice of singular clearness and power and could be heard as distinctly as the youngest and most vigorous of his priests So abounding was his vitality in spite of his age that his death was looked upon as still remote Mr Glad stone alone of recent times carriedwith him through so long a life to the very graves brink such vigorous use ofall his faculties of mind and body The deceased prelate was born on April 24 1817 in Lanesburg close to Westport in the County of Mayo His patents were of the respectable farming proudestoboasts in after life that he was sprung agerhe displayed marked ability In St Jar laths College Tuam where he was educated he steadily distanced all competition There he passed with a brilliant reputation to study in Maynooth where his distinguished career realized the most sanguine hopes of his friends He earned the very highest collegiate honors and for three years was a scholar of the Dunboyne establishment the most coveted distinction that Maynooth has to offer the most brilliant of her students In 1840 he wasordained priest and two years later obtained the position of Pro fessor of Sacred Scripture in St Jarlaths College Thence he rose rapidly to the position of President of the college which position he retained till in 1857 he became Bishop of Galway where he speedily won the affectionate veneration of priests and people Later on he was appointed Coadjutor cum jure succes sioais to the Venerable John MacHale then Archbishop of Tuam and on his death at an age even more advanced than his successor had achieved received the Archbishopric HINTS ON STYLE Brown seems to be finding its way into favor and with a combination of materials all of exactly the same tint it is modish indeed There seems to be

phil = dren Will Fled Santa Claus r 1 Uti e- i Stays There tho Entire Day Amid Toys oflvery- De8Qrlptiono READY FOR CHRISTMAS VISITORS rr If there wet such a thing in Louis ville as a nursery catechism and the nurse talc bglutthe book to hear th dally Jleajonjhojuld ask the class Who is Santa Claus the reply would prob ably be something like this Santa Claus is the patron saint of good children and if is he who fills their stock ings with nice things on Christmas And their wHen the nurse would ask th next question Where can Santa Claus be found in Louisville the reply would undoubtedly come in concert At J Marketastreet Then each member in the class who had answered in this wiseand there wouldnt be an exception would receive a perfect mark For the acknowledged headquarters of old Kris Kringle has for years been at Bacons He made Bacons store his rendezvous when it used tobe up on East Market street above Preston and when the firm built a new house and moved down town Santa just made a new con tract with them and paid up his holiday rent many years in advance He has opened up his pack again for business and can hel seen at Bacons all day long doing the act that has made him famous He is of unusual size suggesting that he has had a prosperous year and that his bounties will be as liberal as his avoirdu pole He is shown in the act of descend ing into a chimney with a pack on his back and a smile on his face His dimen sions while huge are not of a nature to inspire awe in the hearts of the thousands of children who gaze upon him daily Santa Claus to the childish mind is al ways a greatfellow and the fact that he carries a wand which sparkles with 150 incandescent electric lights and also has electric light bulbs peeping from the snow on his cap does not seem at all strange to the latter day child who is thoroughly uptodate in the matter of progressThe that Santa Claus long ago dis posed of his reindeers and now travels exclusively in an automobile does not lessen the juvenile admiration for him In fact our modern children insist upon a modern Kris Kringle and only ask of the jolly old saint not to get into the trust or to allow the latterday commer cial spirit to adversely influence his gen erosity Santa in his new headquarters at Bacons has a throne in the center of the store from which he can see and be seen very readily TJy throne ins understood of course than his throne is his chimney Perched upon its top he slowly all day long and allows his twinkling eyes to sweep from one end of his brilliant realm to theother It iy no wonder that his little devotees stand openmouthedand forget even their mothers as they gaze in admiration upon the idol of their young hearts and the beneficent patron saint of their unclouded YuletideAside from Santa Claus himself there is much to look at in his gorgeously appointed stock of holiday treasures which ate to be foundJn lavish profusion at Bacons In the first place the great show windows are a source of perpetual delight Here are shown the marvelous mechanical toys which were made in Germany France and Austria and which have come all the way across the sea to find a resting place in Santa Claus bountiful storehouse at Bacons One of these quaint figure represents a fisherman who catches with admirable patience almost every known article before he hooks the coveted fish With pipe in mouth he sits the picture resignation while old shoes bottles and other vexa lions things impale themselves on his hook He never looses his temper how ever and is finally rewarded by hooking a genuine fish A miniature of Hermann the Great is also a delightful attraction The little magician uses a trunk and a woman for his trick and makes each of them perform all sorts of antics Finally when tired of his magic he points his wand at the woman and Presto she is gone The gallant French soldier whose energetic flirtation with a pretty nurse is most engaging is also one of the interesting mechanical toys to be seen in the wonderful windows The entire holiday stock in fact which may be seen by visiting Santa Claus vast emporium in the basement at Bacons Is one of the most elaborate ever seen in Louisville and embraces the fruits of many ingenious minds in many climes and lands There is something for every one and all are appropriate to the season of Peace on earth and

Mitchell is conducting the case of the miners before the Anthracite Commission shows that be is a man of extraordinary ability of justly balanced mind and sound rea soning says the Hibernian and then

could buy all eviIdeucefirst looked upon him with contempt and resolved to wipe him out with half playful sarcasm But they were soon compelled to resort to seriousness indig nation and finaly bluster It was all in vain One by one these lawyers were set aside crestfallen and de feated and Mitchell the common labor stained workman stood there a victor before his people The justice of his claims the of his logic the honor and probity of his character could not be shak u ordefeated by all the legal talent in And why Because there is something higher and holier than and legal training The Almighty
