National President of the Ancient Order of Hibernians andJmajority of the national officers and Directors have issued an official pronouncement outlining the duties df members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians At the same time they urged that theI members stand shoulder to shoulder in support of the Irish land bill The entire document is full of good things andv should be read attentively not once butt several times as it contains many matters that Hibernians should continually bear 1 in mind Owing to the fact that space is limited the entire pronouncement cant not be reproduced in the Kentucky Irish i America i In the beginning of the pronounce J ment the national officers adponish members and officers of subordinate divisions to be prompt in replying to communications from the national officers Divisions are also urged to perfect their initiation ceremonies Members t of the order are also asked to try to have r Irish history tqught in their respective parochial acbools in order that coming I generations may be acquainted with the history of their forefathers their strug gles for political and religious liberty and the beoric efforts made by former generations to secure them Attention is again forcibly called to the stage Irishman Hibernians every where are urged to withhold their patronage t from the theater whose man agers and proprietors allow the Irish 1 character to be ridiculed The members of the order are furthermore called toII remember ltiat the fundamental princiI ples or the society are Friendship l Unity and Christian Chairty They are asked to live up to these principlesII On the subject of the lush land bill the pronouncement comes out strong in the following language We are favorable to any movement I 1 having for its aims and objects the advancement of Catholicity and of IrishI men either at home or abroad We are informed that the present Irish land billII will be beneficial to Irishmen at home and that it is acceptable to the great majority of them and meets with the approval of hierarchy clergy and IrishI men generally as well as the Irish nation as declared in the Dublin convention I April 17 1903 This being the case our j duty as Irishmen needs no explanation the movement being acceptable to those most interestedthe people of Ireland Your national officers and Directors charged with the responsibility of safe guarding the interests of this great society have neither the desire nor the right to interfere with the individual opin ion of our members We stand upon the broad principle of freedom of thought and freedom of action and therefore readily concede their right to join and contribute to any movement which in their judgment will advance the princi ples of Irish nationality The fond hope of every Irishman is to see Ireland an independent nation and in making this statement of our position we ask no member to relinquish ideas and principles which many of us hold dear but we wish the world to understand that false and misleading statements made by uliscrup ulous and designing men that we are Influenced by another society are without foundation We warn our members to beware of such professional patriots who because they can not rule seek to ruin this great and honorable society We now appeal to all the friends of Ireland to stand shoulder to shoulder and join with this the oldest and most pow erful organization of our race for the promotion of peace and harmony and for the interests and advancement of every method that may bring prosperity to IrelandThis document is signed by National

Connolly for UnitedIAction General Hail Movement Should Bo Given Over to Feel oration Believes There Is Strength in Union of Catholic- Mon CAPT HAGANS TIMELY SUGGESTION IJ I Unless the Catholic men of the various congregation get together the project offf erecting a suitable general meeting place 1 and gymnasium will have to be abanII doned The meeting at St Planets Hall last Sunday night was not well attended although it had been duly advertised Only seven out of the thirtytwo con gregations in the city were represented Newton G Rogers presided in the ab sence of President Thomas Walsh who was out of the city The assemblage was so small that the majority of those pres ent became discouraged and a motion tocc adjourn sine pie was put and carriedII Threefourths of those present wereII leaving the hall when Capt Frank Hagan made a heroic appeal to them to return and reconsider their action Yielding tott his entreaties the men returned Capt Hagan made an eloquent plea for further consideration on the project He told them of the necessity for such a building and concluded by suggesting a name for It Badin Institute This proposal met with applause and the idea of naming a building after Kentuckys pioneer priest CaptHaganwork among the men of the various con gregations with a view toward securing a larger attendance at these meetings Rev Father Connolly of St Brigids church who has taken great interest in this movement from the first also made nn earnest and eloquent plea which we reproduceMr Reverend Fathers and Gentlemen I do not wish to trespass upon the patience of this meeting but there are timesinuTnVHVesrforall bfus when much as we would prefer to keep silent it is not expedient to do so Now sir it must seem clear to anyone who has been following the trend of these meeting that this matter which we have in hands practically speaking has made very little headway There was at first seemingly more enthusiasm and earnestness and our meetings were much better attended Financially too if the subscription list which has just been re ported is to be taken as a criterion of progress this movement has been any thing but a success At our last meeting two weeks ago I was asked by the then presiding Chair man to make any suggestion which I might deem proper in the interest of this movement I availed myself of the opportunity and took occasion to suggest that this whole matter about which we have been deliberating but which for one reason or other has not materialized properly be placed under the auspices of the Federation of Catholic Societies provided of course that such could be done with the consent of our Right Rev Bishop and that the Federation would be willing to act in the premises At the time some objection was raised fb my suggestion but I paid no attention to it nor in fact did anybody else for the objection was of such a nature that it carried with it its own refutation Now sir since that meeting I have given this matter still further consideration and I will say that I am now more firmly convinced than ever that the best thing that can be done under the cir cumstances is to do as I suggested at our last meeting and as I now take occasion to suggest againplace this whole matter in the hands of the Catholic Federation for final adjustment But let me state briefly my reasons for so advisingIn first place I am in favor of placing this movement under the auspices of the Federation because I want and we all want this movement to live and fructify and bring forth fruit an hundredfold If indeed this movement has to depend for its support upon this associa ion considering the little progress made Its doom I fear is already sealed and sooner or later there will happen to it what sometimes happens to small chil Incait will die of inanition Npw sir II for one want if possible to prevent this calamity In the second place I am In favor of placing this movement under the auspices of the Federation because it is of the nature of the Federation to take up all such matters and push them on If Jit all- soseibleto a successful termination Here the reverend speaker read from the con stitution of the Federation sections bear lag oqt all his statements In the third place I am la ftfvor of placing this whole matter under the auspices of the Federation because ty doing that it will be put in tOUch not duly with the Federation but with numerous other Catholic societies and organizations already duly accredited to- he Federation It is not long since the L Federation ww eetablbb dia thia city sad yeti iJR tkii abort Ue ab f wr than 7 t twentytwo Catholic scities and organ izations have affiliated themselves with it Father Connolly provejHrom official document with which he had been fur nished at his own specjal request that this membership was Wna fide and all jkNow wield great influence in their respectttjve spheres and their ranks are made tip in many instances of some of the most prominent and influential members of our Catholic laity Lb Nor indeed is this Mi Eront these official documents withjwhich I have been furnished I perceiv tl1at the Feder ation bas resting upon ifthe blessing of our Supreme Pontiff Leo PIII and that it has received themost edcohraging and commendatory letters from their Emi nences Cardinals MartineU and Gibbons and from the present illustrations Apos tolic delegate MOnSlgn Falconlo to say nothing of equally 9 icpuragfng and commendatory letters frfin five Arch bishops and thirtysix Bishops Jf our American hierarchy Who then Mr Chairman and gentlemea in the face of those facts and figures tin arise on this floor and prudently andreasonably advise J against placing this pavement under the auspices of the CathHc Federation The Catholic Federationf which is a so t defy of societies is the link which I knits and binds together in one solid phalanx so many of our Catholic societies not only in this commuui y but through out the country Let us iten Mr Chair man in Gods holy nalie do as I sug gest Let us do smethlng that will beI worthy of ourselves worthy of our fair city but most of all all something that will be worthy of our Catholicity If we are not wllitig to makeI this sacrifice and the sacrifice is small then indeed let these discussions ceaseI these meetings be discontinued and let us leave to other burgs and other men more practical and bro dmlnded than ourselves the triumphant accomplish ment at some future day of this whole movement f IS A HUSTLER I r William L Wo1IertlJr1Is Mak ing a Great Canvass For

considered Any one of the Catholic priesthood iis likely to be appointed from any country and sent as Bishop or Archbishop to any part of the world as has been done ever since the founding of the church The special Rome correspondent has discovered nothing THE HOST LOYAL COLONY The most loyal colony Canada heretofore lauded and toasted held up as an example of loyalty and faithful cooperation with the British empire the first to furnish troops with the offer to furnish t more to further British interests in South Africa ever prompt to obey every imperial mandate and comply with every request Yes Canada is the cause of disappointment lamentation and indignation in Eng land because Canada refuses to levy a tax and make an appropriation to build and maintain the British navy to uphold the glory of the empire protect and extend British trade of 1 which the colonies are the bene i itiBut the colonies even Canada do not see it that way As part of the British empire protected by the British navy their trade regulations are governed not by themselves but by the British Ministry While this gives a sort of preferential priv ilege to sell and buy in England they find that it bars them from selling and buying with other na tions because of the restrictions in law or the discriminations in tariffs which the British Ministry impose upon themfor while the colonies nominally enact their own laws theymust be approved by the Brit ish MiiiiryeAndi approval is with held unless the proposed law re strains tradeVth other nations and favors trade wit Great Britain Canada is being Fussed and dis cussed by Government officials and in fcp compli the press in England mentary phrases Mush is said of Canada blasting her future hopes 11and destiny that she will cease to I receive favors in affairs of Govern meat and lose her trade positio 1rwhiz England But the Canadians by experience have demonstrated that Canadas future hopes and des tiny are not to be realized as a part of the British empire that instead of being a beneficiary and progress ing l under British rule she is really only a contributor tGJnliailwe JJt Ja tJ- II a- A a hewer of wood and drawer of water restrained and held back for the exclusive benefit of British in terests She must rely soley Upon English capital and control to de velop her resources and conduct her trade transport only on British railroads and ships sell to and buy from only British merchants and manufacturersand after British dividends and profits are deducted Canada gets nothing Canadas best market to sell at higher prices as well as to buy at cheaper rates is naturally the United StateS For years Canada has fully realized this and has sought a reciprocity treatybut the United States declines to accept a treaty that does not accord to Americans full privileges with those ofevery other nation England in cluded but this the British Minis try refuse to permit And so with every other interest which directly affects the people of Canada and their future it must be dealt with secondhanded by the Colonial Office in London and if settledat all it is on a basis of British inter ests rather than Canadian rights and benefits Asa result Canada gets nothing not even in negotiations with the United States which affect Canada most directly Canada levy taxes and make ap propriations for a British navy to protect and extend imperial tradel Canada concludes not to do it On the contrary Canada is more likely to cease being the most loyal col ony The sentiment of the Young Canadians openly advocated years ago and though re pressed is by no means dead is given an impetus Independence of British rule and annexation to the United States is Canadas only hope declared those young rad icals as they were termed Older heads are beginning to think so recently We are not an LI D but it seems to us that a Circuit Judge who refuses to recognize and per sists in violating a mandate of the Court of Appeals is guilty of con tempt of court and ought to be cited to appear and show cause why he should not be sent to jail the same as others who dare do such things The dignity of the law and courts should be upheld and the judgments of the courts en forced against any and all individ uals Otherwise the law is a nullity and the courts a farce which we regret seems to be tqp often the case in Kentucky lately There are different phases of mobocracy but the most inexcusable as well as most dangerous is the disregard for law and disrespect for courts by those who know better but pre sume on account of position or in fluence to defy all authority Judges the representatives and ar biters of the law should above all others respect the law France has its patriotic cranks the Patriotards whose slogan is France for the French They seek the exclusion of foreigners and ostracism from the ballot and office of them and their children Their latest outburst was a protest and attempt at riot against the re ception of the King of England resulting in a number of them getting bruised heads and being sent to janTher true blue patriot is I a ridiculous nuisance and disturber wherever you find them Reports of cruel

the Celt To the brave old Celt Who was never a tyrants slave Who in every clime since the birth of time Has earned him a free mans grave Heres to the race to the brave old race That has battled for

in this order HINTS ON STYLE Shirring in all Its forms is a veritable mania and one can not go wrong in using it freely In soft materials the full skirt which last season was but a threat is now practi cally universal Street frocks are plaited or tucked Sheer gowns are shirredbut- are not full The stole shows no sign of a fall from grace and is more universally becoming than the ubiquitous cape collar which in its exaggerated form is carried well by very few women Many of the best Parisian dressmakers are insisting upon skirts of soft material plaited or shirred at the waist line and falling free from there but this skirt unless very clearly cut and s1apedisI likely to fall straight and cling in awkward fulness around the feet instead of flaring Linen appears in so many guises that often its identity is lost In its softest silkiest forms it is used for the most elaborate of evening frocks and there are silk and linen combination materials as fine as the sheerest and silkiest mousse line though the linen thread gives dur ability to the fabric The dreseingsacque has obtained favor in this country as a useful and necessary item of a wardrobe but the average American woman baa considered the negligee in its fluffy fancy form delightful extravagance sacred to the elect fey who do not have to count their moaev and to brides for whoee trousseau nothing iatoo

immi grants from Ireland have avoided staying in the big cities and working at laborers wages where they have to bring up their children amid foul atmospheres and in view of every sort of vice Instead they have literally taken the advice of Horace Greely and gone West to grow up with the country Particularly is this so of the State of Nebraska where two flourishing Catholic dioceses now exist and where the majority of the Catholic popu lation is made up of people either of Irish birth or descent The diocese of Omaha was established in 1857 It comprises part of Nebraska the States of Montana and Wyoming and part of the Dakotas The diocese of Lin coIn comprises that part of Nebraska south of the Platte river This diocese was erected in 1887 It now has fifty five secular priests and three priests of religious orders fiftyeight churches 112 stations 112 religious women including novices thirteen ecclesiastical students three academies for young ladies twenty one parish schools with 1829 pupils and a total Catholic population of 27903 The Catholic Directory for 1903 speak- Ing of the Lincoln diocese says The clergy of Nebraska knowing the great fertility of the soil of Nebraska the cheapness of land in the Garden of Amer ica andthe easy methods of transporta tion through the South Platte country the most fertile portion of exceptionally fertile Nebraska feel that they can with confidence invite all intending immi grants to open immediate correspondence with any of the priests in the diocere For delicate persons the pure clear air of Nebraska can not be excelled for all persons Nebraska has a very healthy climateThe U diocese of Omaha has ninety eight diocesan priests and twentysix priests members of religious communi ties It comprises ninety parishes and eixtyeight missions with churches It has one Catholic university and thirty students for the priesthood two colleges with 390 students six academies for young ladies fiftythree parish schools with 5722 pupils three religious orders of men and thirteen for women a total population At ONeill Neb the county seat of Holt county there is a population of be tween 1500 and 1600 souls Small as this town is it has its own council of the Knights of Columbus There is one handsome Catholic church in this town of ONeill and four others in the county Besides there is a convent school built at a rost of 60000 It is conducted by the Sisters of St Francis and is attended by upward of 250 children Good farm and ranch lands can be bought very cheap and excellent business opportunities are open The people of ONeill want a flouring milla hotel a steam laundry and an electric light plant ONeill also has a division of the An Order of Hibernians and the pastor of St Patricks church the Rev Father M F Cassidy is an ardent worker and loyal Irish American He is also one of the deans of the diocese The Irish Americans in this section are all doing well Persons who desire to learn more about ONeill its people and prospects will be furnished all information by ap plying to either Father M F Cassidy or to Arthur F Mullen a prosperous attorney at ONeill OCONNPLLS COOLNESS Daniel OConnell was once addressing an enormous meeting in Kingstown and the crowd was so large that fear was felt for the safety of the building As he was about to speak a gentleman ascended the platform and said trembling with fear Liberator the floor is giving wayl The beams are cracking and we shall all fall ihrough in a few minutes It is not given to many to live through such moments as OConnelj lived through as he arose to address the meeting nor to preserve such magnificent courage in the face of great peril Warning the man to keep quiet the Liberator said I find this room too small to contain the num ber who desire to come so we must there fore leave it and hold the meeting outside A few rose to leave but the hall was still pecked and then OConnell said Then I will tellI you the You are Irishmen and therefore truthI men The floor is giving way weI must leave this room at once If there fa shaUla11if youobey my orders we shall be safe Yet the dozen men beans the door go quickly put then the next dea and soon
