United League Stirring Addresses by Father Quintan and John CuIH nan M P Dublin Castle May Give Place to a National Irish- Parliament THE COUNTRY FREE FROM CRIm A largely attended meeting under the auspices of the local branch of the Unlte- Irish League held in the churchyard at Knockgraffan County Tipperary gave encouragement to the Nationalists iin Parliament From the Cork Examiner we take the following portions of its in teresting report On the motion of Thomas Byrne seconded by Andrew Mahoney D C Rev J Quinlan took the chair Having con gratulated the people on the manner iin which they had assembled there that dayi he said they had come together for the purpose of pledging their support to the teachings of the United Irish League andI to send that body a message of moralI and material support This they could1 do by following the principles of the league oneof the first of which was the condemnation of crime and criminals The league had been the means of keep ing the country absolutely free from crime notwithstanding which Secretary Wyndham had thought fit to proclaim their country under the crimes act and to put an end to free speech and trial by Jury They could materially support thes league by joining its ranks and helping to make each branch strong and power ful in the district in which it existed Material tmpport to the league shouldI also take another formthe people should be prepared to make some sacrifice and to part with some money iin order to enable the men who were fighting their battle in Parliament to con tinue that fight They had heard a good deal lately of the question of a confer tntheland question Well if onne 7ealUhesgnsofrthe limes one was Ito believe that the landlords of Ireland at least the more representative and pa triotic among themwere returning to the paths of reason aud would not allow themselves to be dragged along the road which led to ruin and at the heels omen f who refused from spite or other motives to meet in a conference with the representatives of the Irish tenant farmers If the people of Ireland sup ported the appeal for a defense fund is sued by the leaders of the national mov ment if they continued this struggl- with pluck and determination the laud question would be finally settled a goodj land bill would be the result and the rotten system of Dublin Castle wouldI give place to a National Irish Parliament t at College Green The speaker then in the name of the people of Knockgraffan bade a cordial welcome to John Cullinan M P who in Parliament at home andj in England Scotland and Wales hadj always proved himself a courageous andj a trusty friend of Ireland On the motion of Andrew Heffernan seconded by Thomas Hogan D C resolutions of confidence in the Irish party and the representatives ot the tenants at the land conference urging support to the national organization andI pledging support to the national defence fund were passed unanimously John Cullinan M P who was warmly received expressed the pleasure which- it gave him to visit Knockgraffan t which he had been so kindly invited to speak so many years ago but circum stances had always militated against his coming He regretted very much that the weather was so unfavorable but rejoiced that there was nevertheless such a representative meeting It was th greatest delight to him to find presiding over their meeting such a man as Father Quinlan for they were at the present moment emerging from what many people had looked upon as an unpleasant crisis and the presence of a soggarth aroqn in the chair at their meeting was therefore of good omen There was no doubt whatever that the most tremen dous efforts had been made by a number of deliberate intrigues under the guise of Catholicity in Ireland and out of Ire land to create discord between the priests and their people Mr Culllnan having dealt with the education bill went on to refer to the land bill and warned the people not to be sanguine of a sweeping measure He did not believe in the word final being used in con nection with the land question because there were a number of items which would take a big lot of fighting out yet There was the question of the restoration of the evicted tenants and the question of the sale on similar terms to that of the farmers to the laborers for their cot tages and buildings which would con siderably reduce their rents All these would mean friction and by keeping the organization strong and powerful it would make the Government realize the fact that we were not going to be satisfied with any small doles but that our wishes and aspirations will only be net bYareal and genuine settlement of the land question The speakers were frequently interrupted by the applause of their hearers GALA NIGHT Division 4s

Meeting Will A Perry and George Lautz Received With Marked Honors Able and Eloquent Addresses by Outgoing and Incoming Officers OUTLOOK FOR THE FUTURE BRIGHT attendeddthe meeting of Barry Council Y M I at Lexington last Tuesday night They went to see how the Y M Is in the heart of the Bluegrass region did things and were not disappointed Barry Coun cil has 150 members in good standing and is the largest council in the State outside of Louisville It is made up of Lexingtonchants manufacturers professional men clerks printers mechanics and working men of every class It is indeed a repre sentative Catholic organization When it was announced that Barry Council was to hold its installation of officers on January 13 Grand President William A Perry and Grand Secretary George J Lautz determined to visit the Council on that occasion William M Higgins President of the Kentucky IrishAmeri can Printing Company accompanied them Right royally were the visitors from Louisville entertained The ball in which Barry Council meets was tastefully decorated with red white and blue and green and presented a pleasing appearance J E Fitzgerald the retiring President invited Grand President Perry to open the meeting Mr Perry formally opened the meeting after which Mr Fitzgerald made his final report in which he announced that dur ing the past year 42630 had been expended in

Crow Chairman of the Executive Com mittee presented each member with aI handsome souvenir card in black and gold bearing the names of the new officers The council then held its social session Ferdinand Keller one of the members and a fine vocalist rendered a solo which brought forth repeated encores John 1 Danahy accompanied Mr Kellar on theii piano After this refreshments wereII liberally dispensed and while the good I things were being consigned to the inner man Mr Fitzgerald the retiring President delivered an address reviewing the work of the Council during the past year saying in part In looking back over the past twoJJ years during which time you honored me with the position of President of this council I hardly know how to define myII feelings I have no reason to feel par ticularly proud as no particular thing of J great importance to the council or to the order was accomplished and on the I other hand I am conscious of duty per formed and many acts of kindness and brotherly love in which every member t participated if not directly they did indirectly 1 Our sick register is a history of J kindness and fraternity and when death I invaded our ranks I noticed in every instance I the brother who died appreciated his membership in the Young Mens In stitute I believe it helped to buoy them up so when God called them they went forth willingly courageously fearing not to face Him who gave them life I have always maintained that the sick benefit feature was the most attractive thing in our council Our members as a general thing are young men who have to work and when sickness comes the knowledge I that the income does not altogether stop is a great relief The history of the Young Mens Insti tute is the same as that of every fraternal I society Had our object been only of asocial 1 nature the Y M I would now be but a memory but along with the social t object are others more lasting more essential in perpetuating our organiza tion We have passed through the same stages as other fraternal organizations viz First enthusiasm almost un bounded then reaction then indiffer ence after which there is almbst a reorganization with the light social parts almost entirely elimated and the real essential parts of fraternity retained revised improved upon then steady healthy growth I believe our organiza l tion has reached a point when its growth will be steady and healthy Experience the best of teachers has demonstrated our defects has illustrated our good features We are now ready and willing to profit by that experience so that the j efforts we put forth will bring good practical lasting results Good workhas been done in the past by members Who sacrificed personal comfort and interest ia behalf of the organization ttinnst j be carried oa ia the future

America Grinding Misery and Hardships Under Which People Live GREAT NEED FOR LAND PURCHASE IWriting to the Chicago Tribune from Kiltamagh County Mayo Eugene Cra mer declares that in the Swineford dis trictthe Swineford poor law union at the Governmental division is known the property holdings are the smallest in value per individual of any spot in all populatlonand realty improvements the people pos sess in the world averages a value of 473 The district affords a scene of the same congestion of the same priva tion and consequent suffering which is found throughout the congestedwestern districts of the island The grazier has taken the good lands for his cattle or his sheepor the landlord is devoting the acres to his own uses and the mass of the people are crowded out on the waste and the bog to workout a bare living The misery and poverty of Swineford Union need not be dwelt on in detail It would mean merely a repetition of the miserable conditions which have been presented as to other portions of County Mayo of Counties Roscommon and Gal way and of the Achill Island district which ranks next in the lowest individual valuation of property the average there being a trifle over 5 a head There are 44102 souls living in this districtliving- in some way or the other but neverthe less keeping breath in their wasted bodies The facts as to conditions are plain and they come from two sources both official The District Council as the result of exhaustive canvass just concluded finds tie total population to he 49162 souls s tha glue onoQy 915When all things are considered no other part of Ireland affords exactly a parallel for the grinding misery and the hardships under which the people of this union live owing to the congestion of population and the inadequate size and unfertile nature of their holdings The island of Achill with its soil of rock and mountain bog and Delmullet with its clay huts show conditions that are bad in the extreme but in those districts the people have the opportunity of aiding themselves by fishing But the yield of the sea is not for the unfortunates of the Swineford union Hundreds and hun dreds are compelled to live shut up in hopeless despair The land in many places is hardly worth tilling The only hope of support the family has is unually getting out the skin in a fashion to market The total area of the Swineford union is 151560 acres The actual area under crops and given over to grazing is but 112588 acres the remainder being made up of bogs and the territory under water and roads There are 7700 holdings in the district Of this number 4708 are holdings with a valuation of less than 20 each Of the remaining occupiers or tenants 2327 are on patches which have a valuation of from 20 to 40 each There are 395 holdings valued at from 40 to 75 77 which are entered at a valuation of from t16 to 100 in each instance while 133 holdings each valued at over 100 are composed chiefly of grazing farms held chiefly by non resident renters or of lands held by land lords solely for grazing purposes There is no landlord in Ireland no matter how savagely he may oppose the tenantry and their demands for universal purchase enablement who will deny that a hold ing valued at less than 40 can never afford subsistence for a tenant and his family Here again it is the old story The occupiers are kept from year to year from perishing from famine or privation by the earnings of fathers and sons and daughters on the harvests in England and Scotland and by remittances from relatives in America What this means to the peasants of the Swineford district can be appreciated when it is understood that last year 54 per cent of the total male population of the union whose ages ranged from twenty to sixty years migrated to Eng land to work the harvests the total number of these men who were forced to seek outside work to keep up the rent on their patches being 4394 Of the total number of emigrants from the entire congested districts lying within the poverty stricken county of Mayo 44 per cent were drawn from the Swineford union alone Compare Conditions with those of Euglaad Ja the latter country the in dustrial classses have employment at their own door at least sufficient to keepI them and their own from actualwant In Swineford union however it is needs sary for more than half the adult male population to leave their homes and croiB the Irish MA iu order to sore life n to their families and to pay the a rent which the soil itself is incapabl- of producing But this need of annua migration is not all There has been constant and disastrous strain on th population here by the number of young men and women who have gone to the United States and other countries i searchof a livelihood which is denied them at home The total emigration from County Mayo alone since 1851 has been 164589 Of this number more than 40000 came from the Swineford district Right here too is found proof thatt land purchase by the tenantry will be tne check to this rush of emigrants Thus far land purchase through Govern ment aid has been applied to but a few small estates These lie chiefly in th town lands of Attymachugh and Largan more In these two town lands the tenants were enabled to buy their hold ings twelve years ago Since 1891 the population of the Swineford union has dwindled from 48261 to 44162 a de crease in ten years of over 8 per cent But in the restricted section where land purchase is growing into history the pop ulation jshows an Increase of 9 per centiI having been 296 in 1891 and 322 last yearIt is on just such conditions as are shown in this case that Irish National ists and Liberals who are demandin landsettlement base claims that uni vernal land purchase will result In Ire land being able to hold and sustain population of 15000000 instead of a tryingtoo 0 SPLENDID PROGRESS Being Made For IrishAmeri can Washington Birthday Celebration The IrishAmerican Society held its first

There was evil for thou sands of every class surely no good in it beyond relief for the miner c from injustice in future if he won r if he lostbut he didnt lose and the good is already in sight not only to the miner and the con sumers of anthracite coal but to the consumers of coal and it may be of everything else in the country It is no less than the solving of the annual winter puzzle Why is it that the price of coal goes up and down the reverse of 4- Sa the thermometer regardless of supplyThe anthracite miners in thei contention were firm and explicit in statement of charges against the operators claiming they had proof The evidence before the strike commission establishes beyond dispute the miners charge of combi nation between operators railroad and dealers that the two latter fix the price and whatever the price these two pocketed 65 per cent leaving only 35 per cent to the operatorsthe combine operator being interested with the railroad and dealersonly the independent operators and all the miners being the sufferers at one end because of the small per cent of the price received for coal and the public at the other end because of the higl price paid for coal that the price is kept up by limiting the supply either by suspending work in the mines or failing to take the coal tto market that while the miner de spite an apparently fair wage and high prices of coal does not make a living and independent mines fail to pay dividends the combina tion railroads and dealers have ia bonanza the public is fleeced and often made to suffer for want of coalWhile every one has believes such a state of affairs to exist few thought the gruff and uneducated miner would be able to do what has baffled public officials legis lators merchants and manufac turersprove it But the miner deficient in education knowing nothing of law or business ethics possessed what the more learned lackedthorough practical know ledge of coal miningand solved the worrying problem Acting on this clew and urged by the cold snap with its usual scarcity and high prices of coal merchants manufacturers City Councils Leg islatures Congress and grand juries are digging coal throughout the country with the astounding de velopment that not only in anthra cite coal in the East but in soft coaleverywhere this combination method of robbing the miner and plundering the people is in vogue even here in Louisville With thou sands of acres of coal lands within easy reach and thousands of bush els of coal sidetracked in cars or moved in barges out of sight the price was advanced four cents a bushel in the past week on the plea of short supply And in all parts of the country it is the same Supply short prices ad vancing industries shut down people suffering for coalin a country with millions of bushels held out of the market and an in exhaustible supply easily accessi bleThe investigations have only be gun They should be pushed vig orously to a thorough finish The business interests legislative bod ies State and national officials should be urged by public petition to do their full duty under the law to relieve and protect the people Where corporations are guilty for feit their charters as it is the right and duty of the State to do where individuals are guilty prosecute and punish them The law is ample but it has not been observed nor enforced It is time to vindi cate the law punish the culprits and give to the people legal pro tection against systematic plunder and periodical distress Our Board of Trade city court and State officials as well as those of other cities and States have this duty to perform Will they do it Or docs the railroadcoal combine control them as in Penn tl i c c sylvania and Western Kentucky for instance If they do nothing after the uncalledfor advance iin the price of coal the past week that settles it and it is up to the people to grin and bear it or elec officials to represent them instead of the combine Which shall it be It is claimed that 75 per cent of the fourteenyearold boys and girls of this country are out of school snd working at various employments The parents and the States that permit this all reap the curse

found them on the mantel in your room and I knew of course that you had brought them home formeYyou cant use them can you No But I appreciate your thought fulness just the same You got them at a bargain didnt you Umyes Well you were cheated I dont see how anybody who makes buttonscould have been so silly as to forget to put in the holes that the thread goes through when you sew them on And

arm to pass through Pink tucks arc much employed in verti cal lines on the skirt or in designs radiat ing from a motif of lace Inchwide tucks are used at the hem and large French knots are another feature of trim mingSome of the daintiest waists are made of mousseline trimmed with silk bands and lace followed by another example in the use of stitched bands in silk Vel vet ribbon may be employed in the same mannerTambour lace is very much used on evening gowns in bands and flounces and the oldtime lace scarfs are brought out and arranged peplum style on the skirts forming a point in front andat the sides Dangling ends of narrow ribbon ter ofethe ribbon twisted ends of chiffon with sweet peas made of chiffon at the extreme end and tassels of all kinds are conspicuous features of trimming The blouse waists fastened at the back are the prevailing mode at the moment and some of them have a sort of double bolero effect the edges finished around with a band of lace insertion edged with a stitched band of the linen The use of two kinds of lace on the white mousseline gowns make a very effective contrast Irish and point de Venise being a pretty combination in alternate bands around the skirt and for the bertha the Irish race falling over the VenetianThe fancy for separate waists bids fair to outlive any other ever in vented by the fashion makers and here is a pretty one of pale ecru lace in combinations with black lace and velvet ribbon Squares of lace and tucks trim another pretty onebf white silk THOUGHTS ON SLEEPING It is astonishing with how little reflection we

our nights its value can only be appreciated by due reflection And to make that reflection is a most solemn and indispensible duty We should en deavor to imagine and it is but faintly that we can succeed in doing so how miserable in body and disturbed in mind we should be were we deprived of the power to sleep The reflection will teach us to feel that value for sleep and that gratitude for our enjoyment of it which the more thoughtless of our race can only be made to feel by the troublesome contrasts of being deprived of it EXPENSIVE A gentleman was being shown around London by a citizen
