a Comprehensive Document Considers Every Blmso of the Difficulties Which Con front Us Chief Executive Has Something Pertinent to Say On All Subjects 4 HIS VIEWS ON LABOR MATTERS President Roosevelts message to the Pifty nfnthCongressof the United States was presented and read to that body on Tuesday It is one of the deepest and most comprehensive messages ever pre sented to that body Simultaneous with its presentation to Congress it appeared in the daily papers in every city in the lifted States Theodore Roosevelt is a typical of the best American types He never flinches when he has a duty to perform After congratulating Congress on tbi peaceful state of affairs and our relations to mankind he jumps right into the question of corporations The gist of his message on this subject is as fol lowsI do not believe in the Government interfering in private business more than is necessary I do not believe in the Government undertaking any work which can with propriety be left in private hands but neither do I believe in the Government flinching from overseeing any work when it becomes evident that abuses are sure to obtain therein unless there is Governmental supervision Then the President turns his attention to railroad rates and says It sometimes happens as at present not that a rate is too high but that a favored shipper is given too low a rate In such case the Commission would have the right to fix 1 this already established minimum rate as the maximum and it would need only one or two such decisions by the Com mission to cure railroad companies of =tfaepracUce of giving improper minimum ratesNext he turns his attention to the lack of safety appliances on railroads and ad vises Congress to provide legislation tot the introduction of the block signal sys tem The President also asks Congress to give attention to the excessive hours of labor to which railroad employes in I train service are in many cases subjected The strain both mental and physical upon those who are engaged In the movement and operation of railroad trains under modern conditions is perhaps 4greater than that which exists in any and if there are any rea sons for limiting by law the hours of labor in any employment they certainly apply with peculiar force to the employ ment of those upon whose vigilance and alertness In the performance of their duties the safety of all who travel by P rail depends says the message On the subject of labor as a whole he decries Government interference on the ground that each State should take care of its own labor problems At the same time he advocates that Congress take such measures in the District of Colum tola as will make that a model as to hous lug parks honrs ot labor etc Congress is also asked to investigate child labor and woman In Industry In discussing labor troubles the President says In any great labor disturbance not only are employer and employer interested but also a third partythe gen Aral public Every considerable labor difficulty in which interstate commerce is involved should be investigated by the Government and the facts officially reported to the public He condemns the strife between masses and classes and arrives at this conclusion In the past the most dlrefnl among the influences which have brought about the downfall of republics has ever been the growth of the class spirit the growth of the spirit which tends to make a man subordinate the welfare of the public as a whole to the welfare of they particular class to which he belongs the substitution of loyalty to a class for loyalty to the nation In concluding his remarks on the classes he says This Government la not and never shall be a Government by a plutocracy This Government is not and never shall be a Government by a mob The President also pays his respects to the insurance situation revenues economy in expenditures the currency ques tion federal election the Hague peace conference the Monroe doctrine San Domingo the navy and immigration On the last mentioned subject he says The question of immigration is of vital interest to this country In the year ending June 30 1905 there came to the United States 1026000 alien immi grants In other words in the single U year that has just elapsed there came to this country a greater number of people than came here during the 169 years of our colonial life which intervened between the first Undlnfat Jamestown and the Declaration of Independence It Is clearlyshown in the report of the Cow iniwlbn r General of tmmfgralioa that while much of this enormous immigra tion is undoubtedly healthy an natural 0 bl from one reason or another moreover a considerable proportion of it probably c very large proportion including most of the undesirable class does not come hereof its own initiative but because of the activity of the agents of the great transportation companies These agencle are distributed throughout Europe and by the offer of alt kinds of inducement they wheedle and cajole many immi grants often against their best interest to come here The most serious obstacle we have to encounter in the effort to secure a nroper regulation of the immi gration to these shores arises from the determined opposition of the foreign steamship lines who have no interest whatever in the matter save to increase the returns on their capital by carrying masses of immigrants hither in the steerage quarters of their ships President Roosevelt will stand for no discrimination against the classes of im migrants but he wants a standard of cit lzenship set and maintained He say In dealing with this question it is un wise to depart from tbe old American tradition and to discriminate for or against any man who desires to come here and become a citizen save on the ground of that mans fitness for citizen ship It is our right and duty to con sider his moral and social equality His standard of living should be such that he will not by pressure of competition lower thestandard of living of our own wageworkers for It must ever be a prime object of our legislationto keep high their standard of living If the man who seeks to come here is from the moral and social standpoint uf such a character as to bid fair to add vplue to the community he should be heartily welcomed We can not afford to pay heed to whether he is of one creed or another of one nation or another We can not afford to consider whether he is Catholic or Protestant Jew or Gentile whether he is Englishman or Irishman Frenchman or German Japanese Italian Scandinavian Slav or Magyar What we should desire to find out is the indi vidual quality of the individual man Every line of the Presidents message IIs good The Kentucky Irish American has only picked out a few of the more salient features It is well worth read ing and digesting GREAT TREAT Promised Members of Divis- Ion 1 by the Literary cI nitIJtce t IJ Division 1 A O H will nominate and elect officers for the ensuing year at

the Irish Peoples Must Be I Preserved Says Doug las Hyde IJeagmIReceived Royal Welcome in New York Eloquent and Palpable Truths Told by Irish Linguist and Orator TALKED FOR A WHILE IN IRISH Dr Douglas Hydes first real public appearance in America as a lecturer occurred in Carnegie Hall New York on the night of Sunday November 25 The IrishAmericans of thi nations metrop olis were prepared for a teaf and they were on hand to get it but all who heard this great exponent of the Gaelic League were agreeably disappointed They wete more than treated They heard a schol arly address on the aims and objects of the Gaelic League they were movedto applause laughter and tears There is A personal magnetism about the man that wins all to the cause he represents He Is ever and always an Irishman never forgetting English oppression even when admiring the qualities that are good in the AngloSaxon race As he says him self he is not begging he is not asking for money instead he is conducting a crusade for the deanglization of Ire land More than 3000 people crowded into the hall to hear Dr Hydes first address In America It was a real Irish crowd too They cheered every Irish name he uttered whether it was the Cardinal Archbishop of Armagh or the Protestant Bishop of Derry Martin J Keough Justice of the Supreme Court presided and Justice Victor Dowling of the Su preme Court offered resolutions expressing sympathy with the work of the Gaelic League The Hon W Bourke Cockran made a brief address in praise agdliteratureNinally lydeas the brain end 8Oal0fthe Gaelic movement a patriot and a scholarDr is fairly above the ordinary man in stature and has a great deal of force both in his language and gestures He arose and began to talk to the vast audience in Gaelic Even the Vice Pres idents on the stage were taken aback It was more than they bargained for Yet there were several hundred in the audi ence who understood and they did not hesitate to cheer After speaking in Gaelic for five minutes Dr Hyde pre tended to be surprised at the lack of enthusiasm on the stage He looked around at the throng of Vice Presidents of the meeting and began to speak is English The audience then warmed up The Kentucky Irish American will only attempt to give extracts from his address but these truths are so eloquent and palpable that no man can gainsay them Said Dr Hyde- I am not exaggerating when I ray that I look upon the moral support of the Irish race in America as the most valu able asset that the Irish Ireland move ment at home could possibly have and knowing as I do that practically every man woman and child in Ireland has a near relative or perhaps half a dozen near relatives in the United States I know the immense reflex influence that you can if you only wish it exert upon Ire land and I flay again that I would sooner for the sake of Irish Ireland have your sympathy and moral support than have 100000 poured into the treasury of the Gaelic League tomorrow I am here tp explain to you theme and death struggle upon which we are engaged I see it said here by the more sympathetic of the papers that Ireland is engaged upon the last grand battle of the race for the preservation of its language Ohl gentlemen gentlemenI It is more than that we are engaged upon the last grand battle of the Irish race for the preservation of its own identity Irishmen are forgetting that they had a birthright at all The ordinary Irish men with the 0 and the Mac before their names the Murphys Sulllvana Kellys OBriens OConnells and O Gal laghersyou know the men very well these are the Irish race These are the descendants of the men who Christian ized and civilized Western Europe the men who through the horror and dark ness and confusion of the Middle Ages held aloft singlehanded and alone the torch of learning and of piety in the torchrace of mankind They are now for the first time since the battle of the Boyne recovering possession of the soil of Ireland and their children please God will have it to themselves What the battleax of the Dane the sword of the Norman the wile of the Saxon were unable to perform we were on the point of accomplishing ourselves We had all but broken the continuity of Irish life and just at the moment when the Celtic race has begun to largely re cover possession of its country it finds- itself deprived and stripped of its Irish characteristics cutoff from the paatlyet scarcely In touch with the prevent Just upanewbricks of nationality The old bricks tthatardestroyednew ones if vel can on other ground and of other clay

Re vival Began POINTS FROM DR HYDES ADDRESS Will the people of the Irish race in America hearken to the voice of Dr Douglas Hyde In the address delivered in New York at his first public reception he said among other things And when once you in America un derstand thatand I shall have failed in my mission if I do not make you under stand Itthen I know that you will join us in saying to the devouring demon of anglicization in Ireland which with its fouland gluttonous jaws has swallowed up one after another everything that was hereditary natural instinctive ancient intellectual and noble in our race our language our music our songs our in dustries our dances and our pastimes I know I say that you will plant your feet firmly and will cry with us Back demon back Not one other mouthful shall you swallow of the heritage of the Irish nationIThe Irish race the fathers and mothers of the present race of Irish Americans really lived in the closest contact with the traditions of the past and the natioi d life of nearly eighteen hundred years until the beginning of the nineteenth century Even during the dark penal times they produced among themselves a most vigorous liter ary development Thomas Davis and the Young Irelanders come just at the parting of the ways when the nation was as it were still in a state of flux and capable of being turned either to one side or the other Thomas Davis that Irishman without fear and without reproach whose name shall live forever In the grateful hearts of his countrymen and the Young Irelanders generally pro duced a new literature throughout the country It was a literature in which they strove to compete with England herself upon Englands own lines The effect was enormous for a time but it can not be said to be enduring The fact is that the bark had been so recently stripped off the stem of the Irish tree that the attempt to replace it by anew bark stuck on as it were with English gum and glue failed to stick fast or to incorporate Itself with the ancient stem and finally fell off from it as it were in flakes English gum is no substitute and never can be a substitute for Irish sap We have opened the eyes of the entire nation to the awful chasm that lay before them into which they were about to step blindfold the yawn- Ing gulf of anglicization which believe me is only another name for national extinctionNow the movement upon which we are engaged is not the movement of a few faddistsIt pas long passed put of that stage Papers in Ireland whose policy is on other matter radically opposed to one another are now at last as one in recognizing the necessity of our move meat Churchmen like the Archbishop of Dublin and the Cardinal Archbishop of Armagh are as one with us upon it Even the organ of the Independent Orangeman who has receded from the official body says It is a movement no Protestant need be ashamed of So that you see we have now a great mass of public opinion in Ireland behind us And you also see that we are no clique no faction no party but that wf embrace some of all parties and all factions and that offending nobody ex cept the antiIrishman We stand firm upon the pure unmovable bedrock of Irish nationality In one word we mean to deanliclze Ireland I honor and respect most sincerely what is good in the great English race I yield to no man in my appreciation of their perseverance their practical quali ties The characteristics of the Celtic race are perhaps lightness brightness wit fluency readiness and an artistic temperament Those of the Teutonic and AngloSaxon people are rather stead Incas perseverance and business faculties Each race can learn something from the other but neither can successfully cut itself adrift front its own past Has this crusade amounted to any thing A dozen years ago the Gaelic language was taught fin less than a dozen schools Six years ago it was taught In 105 schools Today it is tanght more or lees in 3000 schools Between public and parochial schools coUenBud con vents there can not be lees than a quar ter of a million now studying the tan guage and history of their forefathers Six years ago if you spoke Irish as well asOweu Roe ONeill or wrote it as well as Goeff rey Keating it was not worth a thraneen to you Today you can not obtain a place under corporation inn the capital of Ireland or under the County Council of Cork Mayo or Limerick or I YOunowIhe blatajthe Irish people themselves for the drifting away from the Irish language and customs He spoke scornfully of the pa rents who were discarding the old

thirtythree colleges for buys and 160 boarding schools for girls 215 rnperlor day schools 1087 primary schools ninety four charitable institutions and the chil dren in Catholic schools number over

DECEMBER 9 1905 WHY AND WHEREFORE Why did Bishop Scannel announce the excommunication o the Catholics who attended the pseudo wedding of Congressman Kennedy and Miss Pritchett iii Omaha last week This is a question that hs been repeatedly asked during the present week The KenuedyPritchett affair in Oinahi last week illustrates how the prev stance of divorce has blinded the people to the teachings of Christ As divorce courts have no power toI sever the bond of marriage the event in Omaha could not be a real marriage but anadulterous union Catholics incurred excommunication by attending the affair because by sanctioning the event by their presence they appeared- to indorse publicly the false doc trine that divorce courts can sever the marriage bond or else toI approve openly of adultery Which ever horn of the dilemma they might prefer their position would Still show them to have acted iii open defiance of the teachings off Christ and the precepts of the church To avert the scandal and to warn Catholics of their duty tc avoid being contaminated by the fetid divorce evil Bishop Scan nells declaration proclaiming those who attended the affair to be excommuplcated was a necessity Catholics should act consistently with the doctrine that marriage is sacred and indissoluble and suck vents as that in Omaha furnish occksignsfor v Catholics to show that anyone who marries agaia after being divorced disgraces himself and forfeits all claims to social recognition and respect TRUE CATHOLIC SPIRIT Archbishop Ireland recently con tributed 250 to the Young Mens Christian Association of his city for the erection ora new building Archbishop Ryan of Philadelphia and Archbishop Montgomery of California more recently gave handsome sums for the relief of the persecuted Jews in Russia Many good people may marvell at this bulljt is the real Catholic spidt that these prelates have shown On the one hand Archbishop Ireland recognizes that the Y M C A is doing a good work among the youths of this country on the other it was only another illustra tion of the poets adage One toutof nature makes the whole kip N Archbishop Ryan was born in Ireland and he knows what relfgfats persecution is from expe r rime Bishop Montgomery came from a Kentucky family whose trbears were driven out of Ireland with Lord Baltimore several centu ries ago When these men heard ofy the persecution of the Jews in Russiai their hearts immediately went out to the sufferers and they contributed liberally to their relief Such exhibitions of Catholicity do much toward causiug our
