AMERICAN JOURNALS The American newspapers particu larly the Chicago American newspapers are doing a great work for the people of Ireland just now and if the English Parliament grants any redress to Irish grievances iit will not be on account of the generosity of English members of Parliament neither will it be on account of the socalled peaceful agitation It will come simply and solely on account of public opinion in America The Brit ishers to use a common slang phrase are all wound up about Hands Across the Seaand a closer union of interests between the United States and Great Britain The American people informed as they are by letters from able and un prejudiced correspondents on the condition of Ireland want none of this Anglo Saxon rot Of course Irish and IrishAmericans are familiar with the conditions prevail ing in Ireland but the bulk of the American Copleare just beginning to realize that the Irish people have any real grievances Read carefully this letter published in the Chicago Record dated at Castlerengb December 0 The problem of Ireland is a comparatively easy one It can be solved by giv ing the people a sound economic and political system As soon as the Irish peasant has a fair chance he will work out his own salvation Obviously the remedy is ownership of the soil by the present tenants and full participation of the people in their government It is on these lines the British Government is now working They are the right lines I They are the onlyagencies that will se J of the J cure a rehabilitation country c purciiaseof holdings mll girehoper j and with hope will come greater indus try and thrift Following in their wake will be selfreliance improved methods of living and less inebriety Having learned in London and Dublin what the plans of the Government are and having already given the readers of the RecordHerald an authoritative outline of the great scheme of land purchase which will be introduced in Parliament I In February or March I have naturally i been eager to learn whether or not this magnificent project is likely to workout in time in a definite and adequate uplift- Ing of the people It is apparent that much depends upon the peasants themselves There is no royal road to good citizenship and prosperity These bless lags can not be received by simple ads of Parliament For evidence of the capacity of the Irish peasant to lift himself up we must study the character and history of the peasantry We must see what they have done under various conditions and in this way gather hints as to what they are likely to do after the Government has done Its share and placed them amidI sound and wholesome surroundings Is the character of the peasantry such that they are able to respond to the efforts ofII the Government to improve their lot From all points of view the answer IsI most decidedly in the affirmative This is the pinion of all the men with whom I have talkedmen who know the peasant through and through In forjj mer letters I have tried to show that theI wonder is the Irish peasantry have held themselves as high as they have in theI scale of manhood and womanhood II will make no invidious comparisons with the poor of other specified nations put III do venture the assertion that there is notI another peasantry in the world but would have fallen lower than the Irish IfI i placedamid the samecircumstances by which the Irish have been for centuries surrounded Many of the best IrishI Americans respectable sober useful citizens as good as any in our country came out of these little mud huts AsI babies they learned to walk upon these stone floors with the mud oozing up through the crevices between the rocks Winter and summer they wept barefoot to school or to work in the bogs as we see others going barefoot along the roads here today What these poor Jrish have done in Americala an indication pf what other poor Irish can dp in IrelgndVas- soon as the British Government shall have done its duty And made Ireland on hatf as tm place for poor people to live as America is Here om th great Pillwl estate we bayas eflVbPW the prospect of pwHewkip fthe soil has awakened hope and prowed the sp1ritef improvement The same ttdgAdbsn going pa elsewhere WherevetetiJihave bought their holdings regeMfation baa followed IBduitrfandthrifthAve followed Ser haps BO better evidence of this fact could be foand tbaa the almost invariable rule that where UMBU become proprietors they Inpttve tWr finhk by draitwge and u f better tillage put up better houses get the cattle out of the human habitations and in time acquirp the luxury of ia horse or donkey to help them with their work Social advancement naturally accompanies material betterment These are facts which point unerringly to thi capacity of the Irish peasants torespont to and to justify the efforts of the government to help them up One pf the most surprising phases of life in Ireland and one which possesses great significance in connection with the comprehensive scheme of the Govern ment for wiping out landlordism and supplanting it with peasant proprietors is the almost universal land hunger which is found among the people In no other country have I seen such vora cious hunger for land It iis necessary to restrain the appetite of the people for acquiring ownership of the soil If proper safeguards were not thrown about the scheme of purchase the tenants would bid against one another in ruinous rivalry Instances have been known of sales of mere tenant right not the land in fee simple but the right to occupy it and pay rent to the owner at a sum equal to fifty and even eighty years inlareo inl Prices would be run up to ridiculous I figures Irishmen who go to America orII I I Australia and ean and save a little money I are constantly coming bark tp Ireland and looking for a chance to buy out n small farm or tenant right In America it is well known that comparatively few Irishmen go to the farms to live They remain in the cities pr towns and find employment That tendency could be easily explained by the fact that it is work they seek and when they find it they are content to seek no further Again upon arrival in America few have resources with which to take up a farm They must get to earning as soon as possible and the city affords them that which they must have Once anchored they stay One of the great needs of the Irish peasant is selfreliance He will gain even that in the end but it will require time At the present he is a good deal like a child So long ground down so long a victim of a cruel system he has learned humility He needs always a leader It is in his nature to look up to some one to follow some ones guidance He has a tremendous respect for persons of superior ability character or rank This explains the great influence of the priests in Ireland It explains tOo the ease with which political agitators acquire sway over the masses The people must follow some one because it is their nature and having no one else to follow tkeyfollowt3ieprieeskkepohIticiauFor Sir Anthony McDonnells plan to keep the landlords in Ireland is a good one He wants them to sell out their estates to the tenants but to retain their noble mansions or castles together with their demesnes and homestead farms so that they will have some incentive to remain in the country and take their proper share in its activities To my mind this is one of the best features of the Govern ment planto destroy landlordism but keeptbelandlordstheqlselvesin ample will certainly be needed For it must be remembered that not all land lords are bad men or even bad landlords CHILD LABORV To Be Properly Regulated by the Indiana Uogls laturo From Indianapolis comes the news that at the approaching session of the Indiana Legislature a number of bills will he introduced to ameliorate the condition of the working classes Several amendments to the child labor law are proposed the most important being to prevent girls under eighteen years of age from working in tobacco factories The child orlaw restricts the employment of children to those over fourteen years of age but the cigar makers desire to raise this limit to elgh teen in respect to the factpriesin which they work The bill will represent a de parture and the opposition that is devel oping is based on the fact that it would apply only to one trade The State Factory Inspector will pro- posea till on the subject of child labor but it will relate to their employment- as d class and not to anyone tradeDr occupation He thinks the age limit 1 is constantly being ignored Jn factories the first reason being that JbeJparenta are anxious to have the frl lortheir slabori and second that the factdry owners are Indifferent about the age of the workman provided the wprle Is done As remedy for this conditioii the inspector proposes that BO chill shall be employed ina fctorysio matter what his age till hafaasl passed the sixth

Holiness Leo XIIr Archbishop of Chicago to succeed the appqintImost a foregone conclusion that the Pope would confirm the appointment Bishop Quigley had made a deep impression in Rome by reason of his having been nom inated for the See of New York and now for Chicago Another fact considered of great weight with Pope Leo who above all things likes to honor those of his prelates and priests who shrink from promotion was the well known modesty of Bishop Quigley and his expressed desire to remain where he is at the head of his beloved diocese of Buffalo Right Rev James E Quigley the new head of the Roman Catholic archdiocese of Chicago isconsidered one of the most popular men id Buffalo and is noted as one of the ablest and most learned of the Roman Catholic prelates on the Amen can continent He is especially loved by the laboring people in whose interest and in the interest of economic justice generally he is recognized as a most sturdy champion He will be the youngest Archbishop in America and at the same time will preside over what is con ceded to be the second most important of the Jour leading metropolitan Sees in the worldThe new Archbishop is now in his fqrtyeighth year He was born in Canada but while still an infant his parents removed to Lima N Y where they re IDi Q t y mjI1Ul Iit cltlg Rochester lIe was the oldest child of the household and was early selected by his mother to be the priest of the family On arriving in Buffalo about the close of the civil war young Quigley entered the household of his relative Father Ed ward Quigley at that time rector of the Immaculate Conception church Many Of the boys of this parish recall their baseball days of that period when Mas ter James Quigley was their favorite pitcher in some hard fought contests Father Quigley lost no time in placing the young man in charge of the Christian Brothers of St Josephs College which he left in 1872 having graduated at the head of his class i eXlcitingWest Point cadetship The contest was thrown open to the pupils of all the educational institutions public and private jp the city Each institution put forward its favorite intellectual cbamj plon After a most sifting and thorough examination the West Point cadetship was awarded to the future Archbishop pf Chicago He did not go to West Point however relinquishing the anticipated military honor and turning his career to the Vincentlan Seminary of Oar Lady pi Sorrowsin 73 the latet Bishop Ryan decided Id afford the talented young man the advan tage of a European continental educa tion To attain that end the Bishop secured for him admission to the celebrated University of Innsbruck in the Austrian Tyrol Here he passed tone year pf profitable study in the different grades of phjtfj osophy and

they ought to be The strikers accepted his charge and thenceforth Bishop Quigley was their leader and champion His influence was such that he secured not the endof the strike but the end also of the

AIDING ANARCHY President Parr of the Manufacturers Association of the Uniteds Statesa big name but we be lieve not representing much more than the disgruntled oppressors of labor of the Baer stripeis out with another manifesto denouncing labor unions and sounding a warn ing to the wealthy and business people against the dangers of Socialism and anarchy to which he says the labor unions are tending and are therefore a menace to safety property and good government He bases all this on the adoption of the Max Hayes resolution by the American Federation of Labor Having a false idea of the objects of labor unions blind to their ac tions and results ignoring the equal statusof all people in this free land and striving to maintain class distinction which makes the laborer 1 la steve to the will of the master it is naturall that Mr Parr should see things only as he would have them or more correctly as such conditions would bring about for such conditions of labor as Mr Parr advocatesnot such as labor unions strive for and Mr Parr op poSesbring such results as he pre diets and dreads in foreign coun tries where his ideals prevail Labor unions are not what Mr Parr insists they are Socialism and anarchy arevery distinct from each other and both are separate and no part of labor unions Socialism though we do not approve it does not advowee Injury to persons property 4ind good government as Mr Page charges and we know Max Hayes does not urge that sort of Socialism cialismls political economy o strictly political question and while we know members of labor unions who approve it we c know none who favor that anarch J tici Socialism which gives Mr Parr IEsi spasm If Mr Parr and his associates suppress their prejudice against abornloni sub their ey s IiO they o 4 can see and banish false ideals so their minds can understand what they will see they like other and increasing numbers of manufacturers will come to realize that tabor unions in seeking the advancement and betterment of labor are really protecting and benefiting the inter ests of manufacturers the community at large the rights of per son property and good government That the element of Socialismwhich he dreads are but a small fraction because of the persistent and determined opposition of labor unions to such outlawry that labor unions teach their members to recognize rights of person and property su premacy of law and to rely upon peaceful honorable and lawful methods for redress of grievance that the dreaded Socialistic element are the avowed and active foes of labor unions little less than of the rights of person property and good government and finally that the course of Mr Parr and his associates in opposing labor unions is really encouraging and aiding the Socialistic anarchists in their war upon labor unions the chief bul wark against anarchy the menace to right of person property and good government in thiscountry he seems not to know Mr Parr wants to wake up and quit aiding his dreaded foes the anarchists KENTUCKY GENIUS ABROAD Nothing so forcibly suggests the needofran awakening to activity in enterprise to develop our resources and business to give remunerative employment to our native genius as the reminder that young Kent tuckians in their prime and vigor have been compelled to leave us and throughout the country in the professions sciences arts and mechanics are prominently to

state to the House of Lords Where m mabers asrtsemble to Si reeeiveshim tea his speech and be dismissed On this occasion not over twenty of the Goo members of the House of Commons attended Whatever the motive of the absentees their failure to attend was disrespectful to the execu tive head of Government It is hinted that political and factional feeling is the cause but it shows lack of even the ordinary courtesy of gentlemen The American peo pIe have their political and fac tional differences but they treat their President and indeed all officials with proper respect regardless of politics and factions But it takes the Englishman after all to act the cad for whom he affects such contempt The BritishGerman attack on Venezuela threatened occupation of the Caribbean sea to test to the limit the Monroe doctrine turns out to be a big bluff The United States politely calls a halt and all Europe stands attention While the courteous protest was regarded in some quarters as evidence of cowardice the fact that the most powerful American warships under Admiral Dewey were within hailing distance of the scene of action caused the wise heads to realize the true situation The suggestion of the United States that the warlike demonstration cease and the issues be submitted to arbitration is accepted and President Roose velt invited to act as arbiter to which he consents if all interested agree Boer officials have secured thou sands of acres in Colorado New Mexico and Texas for settlement by their people who are to emigrate to the United States They report that so far 9000 Boers most of them with families and all farmers will tome as soon as arrangements are perfected There will certainly be no objection to these immigrants The Boers have not only won the admiration of the Ameri can people by their bravery but it has been demonstrated that they are moral intelligent industrious and imbued with the spirit that insures their becoming good citi zens They will be welcomed and the count ywi11be benefited by their trek to the land where their Idea of liberty will be realized Blustering attaches of the British Government in London far away from the fray boast of the attack on the Venezuelan fleet as Eng lands revenge for her humiliation in being forced to relinquish Vene zuelan territory under President Clevelands award several years ago Those cockneys seem blind to the fact that this reveals Eng lands disregard for awards she agrees to accept and they also mistake American sentiment for no utterance of President Cleve llaud met with more hearty at d universal approbation than his de cision of the Venezuelan question and his emphatic hint to Great Britain tomoye to the other side of the Orinoco river get off Vene i zuelan territory Mr Harry

that a member of Parliament has suggested that as a measure of relief for Ireland the tax imposed by Henry VIII on absentee Irish landlords should be revived As a matter of fact the law has never been reo pealed but it has been a dead letter for centuries It is possible that after centuries something good has been discovered concerning Henry VIII The suggest or wants the proceeds of this tax applied to the promotion of technical education in Ireland and the reforestering of the country RECENT DEATHS At an early hour last Monday morning Mrs Mary Emma Doerboefer beloved wife of John

some one has aptly said I would as soon chase butterflies for a living or bottle moonshine for a cloudy night postponed enjoyment is always a failure Many young married people starting out with little capital work like slaves for years putting aside every opportunity for pleasure or relaxation denying them selves the luxury of an occasional outing attendance at a theater or concert a trip to the country or the purchase of a coveted book and postponing even their reading and general culture until they shall have more leisure and wore money Each year they promise themselves tha by the following year they will be ready to take life easier perhaps to indulge II- a in little travel When the next yea comes however they feel that they economize awhile longer They put o their enjoyment from year to year scarcely realizing the import of the factt that each successive postponement causes less pain than the previous one At length the time comes when they decide that they can afford to Indulge in a little pleasure Perhaps they go abroad o they try to enjoy music and works of art or attempt to broaden their minds breading y and study But it is too late They have become hopelessly wedge- into the rut the years have made for them The freshness of life has departed En thusiasm has fled The fire of ambition is dead The long years of waiting have crushed the capacity to enjoy The pos sessions for which they hav sacrificed all their natural and healthy longings fo joy and brightness have turned to Dea Sea fruits MACAULEYSI The Vinegar Buyer which comes toI Macauleys the first half of next

ExchangeA like the above in the latter part of November began to appear in the booking offices and the agencies of all the steamship lines of the United States This sign was the greatest com pliment that could have been paid to the filial affection of the young immigrants of America for it was an acknowledg ment of the fact that these young peo ple young Englishmen young Ger mans young Irishmen and young Irish girls but most of all young Irish girls have the habit of sending home at Christ mas to the old folks very large sums of moneyThe agent of the White Star Line in Philadelphia said More Christmas money is sent out by the Irish than by immigrants of any other nationality and more is sent out by Irish girls than by Irish boys II The head of the foreign department of the banking house of Drexel Co said The money sent to their parents at Christmas by young immigrants particu larly by young Irish immigrants is an amazing thing More goes out at Christmas time than in all the other months of the year put together To compare asI do each Christmas the poverty oi the senders with the size of the remittances they send is to be profoundly moved These poor young people crowding this office to send to their old fathers and mothers money that they have earned in the slowest and most laborious way preach unconsciously a beautiful and powerful Christmas sermon The Chief of the Money Order Depart ment of the Philadelphia postoffice said The PostmasterGeneral always sends out from Washington in November word to all the postoffices of the United States that they are to take notice of the approach of Christmas and of the conse quent increase in their outgoing foreign money order business This business expands tremendously at Christmas time I should say that it increases over 1 000 per cent The people who make it increase are all poor immigrants In every steamship agency there sat each evening up to December 20 a multitude of young immigrants They sat very silent in still band awkward atti tudes and soon as their turn came they got through their business quickly speaking in quiet tones and they slipped out In a noiseless timid way Here and there among them was a young Englishman a young German or a young Italian but for the most part theywere IrishIrish girls and Irish ladsThe girls were maid servants The lads were laborers The girls made on an average 360 a week The lads made on an average 9 Nevertheless their hearts were warm to the old folks and admirable was the unselfishness that their Christmas remittances showed The Superintendent of the steamship agency that does the largest business in Philadelphia said the other night as he made out Irish money orders- I could cite a hundred cases among these immigrants of generosity that would touch you Take the case of the goodlooking girl who just went out She sends to her mother in Donegal 5 a month andj25at Christmas She sends in all 80 a year out of a salary of 1144 Would you on a salary of 2000 be likely to send your old mother 1100 The young fellow in the corner is going to be married next mouth to the little Kerry girl beside him He carries the hod she Isa hotel chambermaid He will send home to his father 20 shetmakes more than he the tips in her hotel amounting to a good deal in the theytheftwould to stop But Hertmother I a 115- evety other month The oldish woman on the left has been mailing money home to Donegal for twenty years that I know of Her herrthree maiden sisters who work the little Donegal farm Im told between them atIa month Do you think she let her sisters know that or do you think she letthent suffer Not she She borrowed 25 to send to them and In the letter that went ryproeI perous hadhaq her shednot meat in anonth fA young mauwas here awhile ago and took a draft for 25 Each year for the last five years he had taken one for 71 at Christmas bringing his brothers and sisters over to America one at a time They are ell here now and he has only the ojd folks to remember DJd yotijknovY that nine out of ten of the Irish immigrants that come over don t- I pay their own passage pfd yon know alreadyhere t1 0 around Christmas time The Irish are the goodhearted racetr Thus from this young nod prosperous country money in a groat stream flows into the old and unhappy country of Ire land at Christmas They who send this moneyare poor what they send goes forth at a sacrifice and nothing comes back to them in return in the way of Christmas gifts Tliejrexpect nothing But for all that they have their reward SERMON OF ST FRANCIS J Up soared the lark into the aIr A shaft of song a winged prayer As if a soul released from pain Were flying back to heaven again- St Francis heard it wa3 to him An emblem of the Ser ptilni The upward motion of the fire The light the

it is something to be proud of Prom cover to cover it iIs worth reading Advertisements usually dull and prosaic are made bright partly from the scintillations of the well known writers who have contributed and in a great measure from the manner in which the ads are written Of course that Inimitable little lady journalist who has many imitators but no equal Miss Elvira Sydnor Miller is1 the mainspring ofthe Christmas Journal Nature reversed herself when she failed to have Miss Miller either of Irish birth or descent However she has one qual ity equally as good as the Republican politician would say she loves the Irish In fact Miss Miller loves the distressed the oppressed of every land Her wit iis bright and her sarcasam sharp When she goes after anybody she uses speak ing from a journalistic standpoint a sugar coated pill or a rapier instead of a bludgeon but you are just as dead when she gets through with you and your corpse is not all disfigured Well Miss Miller is the editor and Frank G Drewery is the publisher of Christmas Journat and they have cer tainly earned the patronage of the public on the issue of their book this year Some of the ablest writers in the country and others not so well known but who are just as much in earnest have con tributed articles for Christmas Journal not for gold but because they admire Miss Miller and Prank Drewry Among the contributors are Lucion V Rule Will S Hays James Whitcomb Riley add Madison Caweln all poets of national reputation G E Johnson Will W Douglas Rt Burge Toney Charles Dobbs Maley Bainbridge Shaw Miss

evening gowns and some very attractive gowns are made oftulle Chiffon velvet isone of the new ma terials and is particularly attractive for evening gown combinations It is also very popular because of Its delicate texture t The present mode of insetting lace in- net adds untold variety to the net gowns while the beautifulembroideries enrich the plain satins to the highest point of elaboration 1I French knots always effective if neatly done have not lost a whit of their popu larRy and prettier effects than ever are made by using twothreads one of white and one of black ittwo shades of one color Some little touch of gold appears on many of the very latest model gowns and it is because there is so little of It that it adds so much to the scheme of decoration A delicate bit of gold on black gowns too is very attractive Chiffon has some part in almost every gown whether it is for evening or day wear and shirrings of all kinds are in order In feet almost any kind of dainty band work

arrived at in connection with the technical instruction grants which are to continueThe United Trades Association passed a resolution against the boycotting of hunting by the United Irish League on

would be added to the forces of the national movement many men hitherto opposed to them QUIET RESTING PLACES There is always peace in the heart that is conscious of Gods presence It is because we do not know that He is with us some one has said and more than half doubt that He is anywhere that we become nervous irritable uneasy and unhappy It is possible to reach such a height of faith as to find perfect freedom from the petty perplexities and daily cares and small worries which produce mental restlessness and physical disease Prom these rare altitudes a man looks down on the troubles of life with calm indifference and looks up to Godwith serene trust The experience of life can not seriously disturb a soul to whom the Infinite seems close by Heaven has al ways begun in such a heart Oar Divine Lords Peace be still has been uttered over all the billows that threaten to toss the bark It has inard rest whatever be the outward commotion Environ ment is a small matter to him who con templates the Almighty Not easy of attainment is this point of vantage from which to survey the world the perfect poise of complete faith but it is well worth what it costs EUCHRE AND DANCE Trinity
