J J AMERIcAN VOLUME XIVNO 1 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY JULY 6 1907 PRICE FIVE CENTS PROTESTANT Tribute to Archbishop John Ire land and the Catholic Church Country Needs the Restraining Conservative Influence They Exorcise Never Was There Greater Need For the Church In This Country A DIY OYER WHICH ALL REJOICE The following is an excerpt from a remarkable tribute to Archbishop Ireland and the church which appears in the last issue of the Bellman a nonCatholic paper published at Min neapolis It was written with refer ence to the laying of the corner stone of the new St Paul Cathedral After referring to the many distinguished churchmen present the Bell man says Towering over all by reason of his distinguished personality his rank in the church his signal ability and his strong position in the regard and affection of the people of the North west irrespective of religious belief was Archbishop Ireland exalted with fine zeal for God and humanity proud in the realization of a long cherished dream yet humble in the sincere acknowledgement that only through the beneflclent goodness of the Most High to whom alone ho as cribed all success could his great church have accomplished its magnifi cent work It was not only the greatest day in the history of the Catholics of the Northwest it was moroa day to rejoice all those who believe in and hope for the ultimate victory on earth of the principles of the gospel Well might the loyal and devoted Catholic feel proud of the great demonstration yet there was occasion also for the liberal spirited Protestant to join in the gratification of the event it marked not alone a Catholic but a Christian triumph in Its broadest and best seas The Bellman is a Protestant technically perhaps a hieratic although the word seems harsh when considered in connection with the spirit of religious toleration and freedom which finds expression in the North west under the leadership of such mel as Archbishop Ireland Bishop Cotter Bishop McGolrick Bishop Ijchwebach and other clergy of Cath olic faith Nevertheless when the splendid achievements of the Catholic church both spiritual and material are considered the Bellman bows in referent and respectful admiration to the great religious organization which celebrated with such fitting honor and such devout fervor the lay ing of the corner stone of its St Paul Cathedral There are those who affect to see in the might and power of this grand organization which bears the banner of the cross n menace to American institutions a temporal allegiance to an alien power which may demand from American citizenship such sacrifices as are incompatible with true fidel ity to the State This sentiment once more prevalent than it now expresssionunworthy and unChristian What ever may be the attitude of the Cath olic church toward the State in other countries and whatever may be the individual expression of this attitude in portions of our own laud this we of the Northwest know for by their works we judge them these brothers of the Catholic faith that no truer or better Americans no more praise b worthy citizens nor followers of a more exalted standard of living texist among us than the faithful adherents + of this church We can not recognize any distinc tion between Catholic and Protestant in the discharge of the citizens duty to his country If there be any it is certainly not to the disadvantage the former In the upbuilding of ofI Northwest the Catholic has done at conItributesbitions of humanity to charity to the care of the orphan to the comfort of the distressed and the peace of the soul where shall we justly place I the Catholic church but In the very front rank of human agencies direct ed toward the development of divine toeneftdence The narrowness of soul the smallness of mind that would detract by distrust and doubt from the splendid achievements ac complished through the Catholic faith by its priests and laymen must be pitiful Indeed not to be able to recognize that an underlying spirit of humility and true righteousness Is the very mainspring of nil these good works which this church has done is doing and will continue to do The eminent and honored prelate also said America in its turn needs religion it needs good and virtuous men and women loyal and trust worthy citizens He might also have added that America needs the Cath olic church Never In the history of this land was there greater need than now for the great restraining con servative influence which that church Is able to exercise upon the wayward spirit of the nation It is doing what no other religious body of less In flexible standards and inferior power of organization can attempt to do successfully o Service to mankind the value of which Is beyond all- r power of estimation It stands tin movably In a world of mutable 0 changing purposes pointing steadily to the value of law discipline and order proclaiming the beauty and worth of selfsacrifice and service teaching the lessons of obedience and humility With its strong arm it gently but firmly restrains its people from following the dangerous paths which lead to chaos and bIds them find their anchor for the present and hope for the future in the quiet and sanctity of the churchs influence The Protestant as well as the Cath olio has reason to be gratified by the evident growth and prosperity if the church as indicated by the erec tion of St Pauls noble Cathedral As for Archbishop John Ireland we of a somewhat different faith will not consent to be nonparticipants in the satisfaction which the contemplation of such a character affords humanity We must insist that he belongs to us alsois of us a part of the same national family He is a citizen as we fire In the nation if not in the church we share the benefits of his tolenant good will toward mankind the results of his devotion to the cause of humanity the value of his example the healthful influence of his optimism and the inspiration of his sound cousel We who are not of hits church yet within reach of Its benign influence acknowledge the power for good which he exerts and his exalted and ennobling standard of citizenship We honor the great churchman rejoice in the success of his efforts and join fervently In the hope that he may long be spared to carry forward the work of the Master whom he valiantly serves WALTER P LINCOLN Succeeds Charles A Wilson as Judge of County

tKNIGHTS AND LADIES They Will Have Big Day at the White CityIJuly 31 Tuesday evening at the rooms of the Catholic Womans Club on Walnut j street there was a well attended and I i enthusiastic meeting of the recently organized Advisory Board of the Catholic Knights and Ladies of America The object of the meeting was to complete the programme for the annual celebration of the local branches of the order which takes place at the White City on Wednesli day July 31 This iI was formed to assist all branches in this city and to take charge of the entertainment of the State conven tion that meets here next year and therefore the proceeds realized from this celebration will be set aside for iv special expense and amusement fundThough organized less than two months the board has done much to ward bringing the branches closer to gether Reports of the different corn mittees were read at the meeting and a number of short addresses relative to the future work of the board were made by Chairman Thomas D Claire Col John Rudd Thomas Keenan and others It was decided to hold the next meeting on July 10 In Robin sons Hall Seventeenth and Main streets when definite action will be pendIng

Would Like to Have Philippines England of Course Is In Sym patsy With Our Prospec tive Foe WOULD MEAN PROLORGED CONFLICT During the war between Russia and Japan the Kentucky Irish American frequently appealed to the American people to take sides with our old friend Russia which had befriended us during the Revolution Beside this the Russians are Christians and the Japanese are Pagans and yellow devils of a race which hates the Chris tian and the Caucasian Eminent statesmen pointed out the danger of allowing the yellow race to gain supremacy over the Russians How ever for tho sake of trade and to help out a lot of counterfeit mis sionaries the American people through the influence of the British press was constrained to take sides in favor of the Japanese Now the Japs threaten to come over here and take this country They may make terms with the Chinese and if they do they will come pretty near wiping up thin earth with their fanatical hordes It would be a good thing if they do come over here for them to begin on the New York Board of Trade and a lot of British sympa thizers in the metropolis The English Government which drew the United States into favoring Japan in the Into war is now in sympathy with Japan and Its leading statesmen de dare that the United States should surrender the Philippine Islands to the yellow race They want to turnover a Christian nation to a set of yellow devils without morals man ners or decency War bet ecn the United States ind Japan is not improbable though some people affect to believe otherwise Japans national ambitions and activities have greftly widened and new forces set in motion by them ilready have produced friction between American and Japanese interests in several widely distant locali ties As yet the more serious in stances remain in comparative obscurity known only to a specially Interested few and nursed in diplomatic cabinets while those which have been actively discussed belong properly In the pinprick class But these have served to draw the attention of the world giving rise to endless speculation on the possibility- of war between Japan and the United States until today many Americans are seriously asking What can Japan really do to us And while it will probably suffer periodical lapses this questlon will grow more insistent as the years pass and may one day demand n practical answer of the nation Its evident that the problem contains various elements those of time place and collateral physical conditions In respect to place the scene of such a conflict seems to be Inexorably limited except minor manifestations to the Pacific ocean and countries contiguous to it I Just think of itl Should war begin the United States would be placed ay circumstances on the defensive and be confronted by the problem jf protecting her possessions in the Pacific Japans chief effort would naturally be directed against the Philippines but the order of her procedure might be varied Some ex perts hold that Japan would imme diately on the outbreak of war dis patch an expedition to take Manila and seize the islands confining her effort for the time to these opera tions Others think that she would first endeavor to cut our lines of com munications with the Philippines byt seizing Guam and Hawaii thus making the task of defending the Philippines harder and vastly in creasing the difficulty of retaking them should they succumb early In the struggle We need accept at present neither of these views but as much the sane propositions are involved in both undertakings and a solution of one applies directly to the other it is well to discuss the probabilities Involved ina Japanese attempt to take Hawaii first In ease of war with Japan the United States would be confronted from the beginning of such a war with the necessity of holding Hawaii and then preparing to retake the Philippines This would mean a pro longed and very expensive conflict For it need not be presumed that If the American people should enter upon such a war they would permit their Government to abandon it until victory was secured or the futility of further effort firmly established Th8 problems which would confront the naval and military authorities of the United States would be First to wrest naval control of Asiatic waters from Japan second to use this control if secured to blockade the coast of Japan as effectively as possible in order to cripple her trade and industry and prevent the reln fordoment and supply of Japanese troops to the Philippines third to dispatch enough troops to the Philip pines to defeat the Japanese arndell- tlleIja1i11 recover possession of the islands While to accomplish all this iis by no moans impossible It would be an enormous undertaking and would probably require from two to three years All of this war talk could Lave been avoided had the United States Govern ment done the square thing with Russia in the late nor between the yellow Japs and their Christian ri

and encouragd the Irish harpers Under James the harp as the na tional emblem of Ireland was first quartered on the English royal arms A prominent official of St James court Is recorded as saying The best reason for the adotion of the harp as representative of Ireland was that it represented Ireland itself in being such an insrument that it required more cost to keep in tune than it was worth which remark coming from that source quite cum Aliments the Irish people Galilei writing in 1835 praises the Irish harp and acknowledges Italys indebtedness to Ireland for it Bacon said about the same

harp was still comdnonly in the hands of the Irish people every house having one or two Then came Cromwell and a fierce cru sade was begun against Irish music Us rage could not stand the sight ot an Irish harp and by his orders i they were not only Confiscated but broken into pieces wherever found in Ireland Archdeacon Lynch in Ireland at that time in the secrecy of his hiding place wrote a history of j the Irish harp giving the minutest details of its construction and appearance in its various forms so thatsposterity might know that there had been such an instrument in Ireland In common use Many of the Irish harpers fled to the continent in these dark days and from 1700 on we find the Irish harp in Bavaria and in France fitted with pedals and then with double pedals and otherwise improved and enlarged a With the Irish it had been used to accompany the voce principally but Handel wrots parts for it in his rchestral instrument of great dignity and value Numerous attempts- In

Capt John Smith and his Virginia colonists consisting of poor gentlemen tradesmen serving men and libertines On November 21 1020 the Mayflower arrived at Cape Cod and a few weeks later the 1one hundred and three souls on board landed at the historic rock of Plymouth It soon became obvious to farseeing men that the colonies onlywanted population to make them prosperous The first immigration from Ireland into America was compulsory Prendergrast In the History of the Cromwellian Settlement taJs The Commissioners of Ireland gae themmerchants of Bristol Eng landorders upon the Governors of

the Irish nation above twelve years and under tIle age of fortyfive to be found in the country within twenty miles of Cork Youghal Kinsale Waterford anll Wexford to transport them into New England The Rev Augusta J The baud in The Irish lace in the la8t and Present says It Is jcalculati that in four years those English firms of slavedealers had shipped 0400 Irish men and women boys and maidens to the British Colonies iof Xorth America Voluntary Immigration soon followed Maryland from its Catholic origin was at an early period a point of attraction and iso rapidly did the Irish Catholic clement multiply that in 1708 the Protestant inhabitants passtod an act imposing a fine of twenty shillings for poll on Irish servants to prevent the im porting of too great a number of- IrIsh Papists into the province and a more stringent act to the same purport was passed in 1717 n 1727 says the Philadelphia Gazette iiin Newcastle Government their arrive last year 4500 persons chiefly from Ireland and at Philadelphia in one year 1115 Irish of whom none were servants From December 1728 to December 1729 the proportion of immigrants landing in the Pennsy vnnia province was as follows English and Welsh 267 Scotch 43 German 243 Irish 5655 the Irish being thus nearly ten to one of all othe nationalities together and that proportion was practically sustained down to the Revolution of 1770 By 1729 the Irish element had increased so largely in Pennsylvania that ia prominent member of the Provjncla Government expressed himself glad to find that the Parliament of Grea Britain was about to take measures to prevent a too forceful immlgra tion of Irish settlers It looks he said as if Ireland is to send all hei inhabitants hither for last week not less than six ships arrived and every lay two or three arrive also The common fear is that if they continue to come they will make themselves proprietors of the province Not long before our jRevolutionarj war the abolition of the tithe ol sglstment or tithe on pasturage of attle made pasturage so much more profitable than tillage that the land lords throughout the north of Ire land began to consolidate their farms and expel their

Xo complete memorl11 has been transmitted of the cmlgi lions that took place from vlropi to America but from the few lllusti tlve facts that are actually preserved they seem to have been atnazinp copious In the years 177172 the number of emigrant to America from Ireland alone amounts to 17350 1 most all of them emigrated at ihelr own charge a great majority If them were persons employed in tho linen manufacture or farmers pOSe sessed of some property which the converted into money and carried with them Within the first fortnight of August 1773 there arrIved at Philadelphia 3500 immigrants from Ireland and from the same docume which recorded this circumstance It appears that vessels were arrivIng every month freighted with Immigrants from Holland Germany and especially from Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland As most of the immigrants and particular those from Ireland and Scotland I t were personally discontented with I thJir treatment in Europe their accession to the colonial population it might reasonably be supposed had no tendency to diminish or counteract the hostile sentiments toward Britain which were daily gathering force in America These Irish Immigrants dill not settle down in the cities but pushed out into the wilds ness to make homes for themselvc and the Pennsylvania authorIties complained that they foinented trouble with the Indian tribes by their disposition to intrude on the Indian hunting ground in their search for lands From Pennsylvania they pushed down into the Valley of Vir ginia and many settled in the Carolinas The struggle for American inde pendence had no more strenuous sup porters than the Irishborn and Iris descended colonists of that time Before a committee of the British House of Commons on the conduct of the American war of which Edmund Burke was a member Major Gen Robertson who had served in Amer- Ica far twentyfour years when asked by Burke How are the Provincial corps composed are they most Americans or

united as a band of brothers In the year 1760 the Gloucester Foxhunting Club was in tituted and continued its meetings 1111 1818 Many of its members were also members of the Sons of St Pat rJc1 and from the two associations was formed the first troop of Penn irlvania cavalry of which General Washington said Though composed of gentlemen of fortune they have a noble example and subordintu lshownand in several actions have shown a spirit and bravery which will ever do honor to them and will ever- be gratefully remembered by me Until the flames of war broke out- the objects of the Society of the FrIendly Sons of St Patrick were purely social and convivial They met and dined and sang and joked as Irishmen have been wont to do from time immmnorlal and many n time Wash- Ington was present at thtair festivities On December 17 1781 Gneeral Washington was unanimously adopted a member of the scoiety1 and not only did he accept the preferred honor but also an invitation to idin- ner at which were the bravest and most distinguished Generals of the allied armies of France and merlca The side which the society took In the Revolutionary war was early iun mistakably indicated by their pro ceedings at a meeting on Decemhrr 17 1775 when one Thomas Bott was by a unanimous vote expelled from the society for taking an active part against the liberties of America The devotion of the members of the society to the cause of American liberh was acknowledged by Washington himself in a letter to the President of the society in which he described the society as distinguished ifor the firm adherence of its memliers to the glorious cause in which we arc embarked Stephen Moylan the first President of the society ana tlJo of the south of Ireland anl1 brother to the Catholic Bishop f

Fifth Century and Weighs Only a Few Ounces ASSOCIATIONS MADE THEM PRECIOUS It was the time of St Patrick in the fifth century that bells began to be adopted In the Christian church though their use in other directions was long anterior to Christianity as Mr Laylard records having found some in the palace of Nimroud The first Christian bells like Patricks weighed only a few ounces and from that they gradually increased till the greatest weight was reached in Moscow with HIS tons of beautifully enriched work a strange contrast to the humble Cloganeadhacta Pat role or bell of Patricks well sometimes referred to as the bell of Armagh with its diminutive dimen sions of six inches high by five inches broad four inches deep made of thin sheets of hammered iron beat into a four sided form fastened with riv ets and brazened or bronzed This bell is at once the most authentic and the oldest Irish relic of Christian metal work that has descended to us and is mentioned in the Annals un der the date of 552 Such as this were the bells of the early apostles of Ireland but the age was a progressive one and advancing art soon claimed the bells to work on and the hammered Iron gave way to bronze castings more skilful workmanship and to more perfect reson ance Yc arc fortunate enough to have on loan the finest example in the Bangor bell of what the craft of bell making had advanced to by the time the tenth century had dawned For 800 years the iron bell oe Patrick had done Its duty and now it had to be laid by The same story applies to many other famous bells of Ireland and their shrines but the church loved these ancient halts and their associa tions rendered them most precious relics They must be preserved and the far famous gold workers of Ire land care to the rescue and brought the national art then Ja the zenith t- k i 1 lY h of its perfection to bear on the cases to hold them called shrines and by far the most beautiful of all was that for the bell of the great patron saint of Ireland The early church builders and arti ficers of Ireland were skillful and bold and fearless in their creations With an independence of thought they struck out original lines to work on We see it in the stone roofed churches the stately round towers the great crossesa model of one the finest cross on earth stands near the case containing the bellsand by the preservation of the bells themselves we see in the re- liquarIes or shrines another master thought repeated nowhere else and these remain a purely Irish character istic A few found a resting place In Scotland but a great authority says they are attributed to Irish saints and we naturally turn to Ireland in search of the parent group The shrine was made to inclose the rude Iron bell This fine example of the goldsmiths work must have been executed between the years 1091 and 1105 when Donell McAuley whose name is given in the inscrip tion filled the see of Armagh The shrine is made of brass on which the ornamental parts are fastened down with rivets The front is adorned with silver gilt plated and knot work in golden filigree The sliver work Is partly covered with scrolls some in alto relievo and some in basrelief It Is also decorated with gems and crystals and on the sides are animal forms elongated and twisted into interlaced scrolls Since the original shrine was made in 1091 it has never been lost sight of but has been handed down from custodian to custodian generally of the same family MARES LAST ROUTE John C Brady for years past a well known letter carrier of the West End succumbed

Said to Yet Drive Across the Gurragh HAPPENS EVERY SEVEN YEARS People are so much accustomed to hear of ghosts walking or rather gliding that it may be as well to call attention to the fact that in quite a number of the ancestral homes of Ireland the supernatural visitors make a point of either riding or driving There is the spectral Earl of Kildare ancestor of the young Duke of Leinster who at the end of every seventh year rides across the famous Curragh where the race course and the military camp are carrying a silver cup in his right hand and holding the reins in his left Ite is mounted on a snow white charger whose shoes are of solid silver and the tradition insists that should the horse at any time appear with his silver shoes worn out either an Earl of Kildare or a member of the Fitz gerald family of which he is the chief will annihilate all the enemies of Ireland It is declared that Lord Edward Fitzgerald the Illfated son of the twentieth Earl of KJldaro and first Duke of Leinster caught sight of this ghostly apparition and Imagined that tha silver shoes were worn out and that it was this which led him to head the rising of 08 which resulted In his nrrist and his death In prison frpm his wounds Ills widow famous Pamela who Is generally believed to have been a halfsister of King Louis Philllppe afterward married Mr Pit cairn the American Consul at nom burg Further tradition concerning the spectral Earl of Kildare goes to show that if he should appear with out the silver cup in his right hand it would be an omen that the line of Fltzgeralds would shortly afterward become 1e tinct CURES CROUP Turpentine is one of the best rem edIts for croup A piece of flannel should be saturated with it andl placed on the childs throat and l Iu I E7 EE E N IGERMAN

sue ces promising our best efforts to do everything to make this paper brighter and newsier if possible THE LID rThe lid went on last Sunday in Louisville but was promptly removed Monday morning and lias been off ever since and therefore but little good was accomplished This lid business smacks somewhat of hypo crisy The fault lies not with the Sunday saloon but with the saloons with wine room and dance hall at tachments that are disorderly at all times and where the young and un wary are lured to their ruin The Kentucky Irish American would sug gest that the reformers get after these dives nnd have their licenses revoked This can be done without hurt to the places that are as properly and respectfully conducted as are those engaged in other lines of buslnes How long would a drug store grocery or bakery be tolerated that dispensed poisonous and im pure stuffs and allowed disorderly gatherings be permitted to exist Apply the same rule and there will be no cause for complaint against the Sunday saloon In this reform u movement judgment should be used and the innocent not be made to suffer for the acts of the guilty The right way to do is to make those en gaged in the business do right all e the time or else lose their license IRELAND AFTER ST PATRICK lon deny that the religion which St Patrick gave to Ireland is divine A thousand years of sanctityz attest it three thousands years of martydom attest it If men will deny the vitues which it creates the fortitude which it inspires let them look to the history of Ireland If men say that the Catholic religion flourishes only because of the splen dor of Its ceremoniall the grandeur t of its liturgy and its appeal to the senres let them look to the history of Ireland What sustained the faith when the church and altar dis gleamedii and no organ peeled lation for centuries No purely natural explanation can explain the supernatural fact that a whole people preferred for ten generations confiscation exile and death rather than surrender their faith and the true reason lies in the allimportant circumstance that the religion of the Jrish people was the true religion of our Lord bringing not only light to the intelligence but grace and strength to the heart and will of the nation The light of their divine faith showed them the hollowness and 1fallacy of Protestanlsm in which they recognized an outrage on com moil sense and reason as well as upon God and the grace of their re + ligion enabled them to suffer and die in its defense The new and false rellglon assailed precisely those points of Catholic teaching which he had engraved most deeply on the mindand heart of Ireland as if he had anticipated the trial and pre pared for it Attachment to the ifoly See was more than a sentiment it was a passion in the Irish bosom Through good report and evil Ireland Was always faithful to Peters chair x4 ifls a curious fact that when the Christian world was confused by the pretensions of antipopes and tf the nations of Christendom were One tone or another led astray land with an instinct truly super aturtJever failed to discover to proclaim and to obey the true Pontiff She is the only Catholic na tion that never was

theevIl r genius of Protestanlsm stalked through the landand with loud voice demanded of the Irish people separation from Rome or their lives the faithful people of God consented to die rather than renounce the faith of their fathers transmitted to them through the saints Devotion to the moths of God was the next great feature of the apostles prench ing and of Irelands Catholicity The image of all that was fairest in na ture and grace which arose before the eyes of the people ns de picted by their great apostle cap tivated their Imaginations and their hearts They called her in their prayers their darling Virgin In every family in the land the eldest daughter was a Mary every Irlsn maid or mother emulated the purity of her virginal innocence or the strength and tenderness of her ma ternal love With the keenness of love they associated their joys and sorrows with hers and the ineffable grace of her maiden modesty which clung to the very mothers of Ireland seemed to be the brightest reflection of Mary which had lingered upon earth Never was the mother of God so dear to Ireland as In the days of the nations persecution and sorrow Rut the fact most glorious and palpable today Is that Irelands Catholicity has risen again to every external gloryof worship and trio umphed ovcry every enemy Has no the Irish church risen again to more than her former glory The land is covered once more with fair churches convents colleges nnd monasteries as of old and who shall say that the religion that could thus suffer and rise again is not from God The Syracuse Catholic Sun enters a vigorous protest against the Anglo Saxon multilatlon of our national anthem The Star Spangled Danner and calls upon New York Hibernian to rouse and see that the obliterated stanza be restored It ought to be as gross a crime to meddle with the countrys national air as it Is to tear down and trample the nations Ilad The flag of the United States adopted by Congress and unfurled on June 4 1777

flour producing cities of the country The Ballard d Ballard Company whose Obelisk brand of flour is fa mous the world over is this year taxed more than ever before to meet the demand for its product Each year additions and improvements mare been made to the mills on East Broadway and the elevators until they have a dally capacity of thou sands of barrels which are immediately loaded into cars and shipped to all parts of the globe This in dustry of itself is drawing world wide attention to Louisville and should therefore be fostered and en couraged by all her citizens- A trip through the Ballard mills is most interesting Notwithstanding the immense amount of machinery required and the large force of em ployes not a speck of dirt or dust can be found in any of the depart goodflourapparent on all sides For the con venience of the hundreds of em ployes there are spacious dining lounging and smoking rooms and toilets The Messrs Ballard are kind and liberal to their employes whose requests always receive just consid eration With such pleasant relations existing it is no wonder that they are as determined as the company to maintain the reputation of Ballard flour

Run ForIParliament STILL TALKS OF POLITICS FREELY Everybody hns admiration for a game man even though they may not love him When Richard Croker an IrishAmerican was boss of Tam many Hall and leading Democratic politician he was abused like a pick pocket lives did not say a word but went right along attending to his own business When he got through with politics he went to Ireland to live Lately he won the English Derby which is considered the greatest honor that any Englishman eou1tlI be given The very idea of the Derby purse being carried off by art Irish American was shocking but nevertheless it happened Richard Croker now lives at a beau tiful country place in Dublin Bay and has been prominently mentioned as a candidate for Parliament It would not surprise the Kentucky Irish American should he accept a nomination and be elected Mr Croker Is much sought after by American correspondents but he says little Isis place in Dublin Bay is known as Glencalrne and was recently described bya Dublin corres pondent who says he found Mr Croker a very cordial host Describ ing the home of Mr Croker this correspondent says In part The entrance gate in solid cut granite seems rather strange to an i Irish eye and looks like the gable of a house In an old Belgian town like Broges The lawns and flowerbeds are laid out with great taste and today are a perfect riot of green and colors There are few buildings in Ireland like Olencairne Most of the great residental houses in this country were erected in the eighteenth cen tury when domestic archlteture was conceived in somewhat commonplace vein Olencairne Is not unique but is certainly exceptional In Ireland It is a noble pile crowned with anI Irish tower in the center and a beautifully chaste Italian portico running from the hall door to the west round the building to the south and so to the gardens The house is built of cut granite and part of the wall of the original building once the residence of a well known Irish Judge is incorporated in it The grand hall Is the principal feat ure of the house It Is a large apart ment In dark mahogany with an elaborately carved and massive old Irish mantelpiece Around are tables and writing materials chairs etc as in a sitting room and on the walls are portraits in oil of Mr Crokers favorite horses and photographs of some of their famous relatives All the chief rooms of the house radiate off this central hall Including the two I have already named and theI dining room and drawing room InI fact standing in the grand hall you feel that you are in touch with the whole house For the main staircase rises out of the hall also and soI brings you at once to the upper part of the mansion The staircase 1is a noble one sixI feet wide also In carved dark ma hogany At the top there is a stained glass window with the arms of the various branches of the Croker fam ily as given in Burke On the left of the staircase as you go up there is a fine piece of tapestry showingI Glencalrne Itself with gaily dressed J women on the lawn Setting aside the oratory and the fine corridor I there Is nothing upstairs that Mr Croker seems to bo anxious to show I you except an oldfashioned bed In one of the rooms which once it appears belonged to Daniel OConnell The lining room is the most spa cious room at Qlencairne The thing In this room however which Mr Croker shows you with most Interests a quaint and Orientallooking bowl j which he tells you with much satisfaction once belonged like the old bed npstaids to Daniel OConnell ItJJ is a punchjug which would hold I ibout a gallon of that Inspiring conIoctlon which according to a CorkII poet was accidentally discovered byI 3t Patrick and Mr Croker informs I you as he looks at it affectionately that it was presented to the great I Irishman by some of his admirers j vhlle he was In Richmond prison No one takes a keener or more sym pathetic Interest in the present Irish I political crisis than Richard Croker jIii Moreover there is no one who isII nore intimately consulted and II whose advice Is considered of greater value by the leaders of the Irish Par iamentary party than the former lender ofi Tammany Hall The sugges Hon that Mr Croker should join the rich Parliamentary representativesI il1 the House of Commons Is the out 1 ome of the spontaneous Iesire of iE his Irish friends and although this J active participation In the a vanceII vent of Irelands Interests Is thus far I efused by Mr Croker it is still hoped 1 ay a largo section of the Irish public hat his objection may be overcome J There Is no rivalry between Mr j Croker and John Redmond the Irish J leader and the mention of Mr 1 brokers name to succeed Iledmond is absurd Mr Croker said There Is no disposition in Ire land to carry the present agitation for home rule to the point of rio lence Nationalist members of Parliament kayo the full con Eidence of the Irish Home Rule party anticipate no split between the ntiseefarlan and clerical dlvis ions of the party The United Trlah LNpe will retain full control of the a l x k home rule movement The home rule cause Is on the whole stronger 1in Ireland today than when Gladstone bill was killed by the House of Lords I believe the sentiment is fully share by Irishmen in all parts of the globe The movement for advancing Ire lands commercial interests by giving preference to all Irish goods is becoming a factor in the situation am should be earnestly supported by th Irish in America for what is this but home rule in a small way The practical duty of IrlshAmeri cans at the present moment is to contribute liberally to the home rule cause The Irish members of Parlia ment serve without pay and no cans cnn be properly advanced wlthou working funds Politically Irish Americans might materially advanci the cause If they had sufficient power In America to influence the Govern ment to bring pressure upon Great Britain by a retaliatory tariff or other treaties Irish prosperity has oj the whole been increasing In recen years This is due to two causes partly to the continual emigration which is reducing the strain upon tin limited capacity of the country to support a large population under the present land system and partly to the patriotic movement above referred to at home and abroad in sup port of the Irish ltdustries Thi British Government is most unwise In refusing home rule to Ireland If it was granted Ireland would become one of the most faithful adjuncti nf the crown I feel assured that 1if the King had the settlement of the question home rule would be granted and that confidence is shared bya great majority of the Irish people with whom King Edward is most popularGODS GIFTS TO MAN When the Almighty

America iIt a man who believes in the simple life When strangers go to Baltimore they naturally look up the Cardinals res idence expecting to find n palace but they are disappointed The Cardinal lives in a plain oldfashionet house and the furnishings lire of the ordinary kind found in American houses The American Cardinals simple life has been the source ol comment because It differs so much from that of the Cardinals who live in Rome In a recent magazine article a writer describes how one ol the Roman Cardinals is received when lie goes out calling This Cardinal I Merry del Val the Papal Secretary of State When Del Yal accepts an invitn lion to a private residence or a for eign embassy he Is received at the foot of the stairs according to the old Roman fashion by two servants with lighted torches who escort him to the reception rooms and await his departure in the corridors He is accompanied wherever he goes bya gentlemaninwaltlng a gorgeous figure in knee breeches cocked hat and svord who sits in his carriage stands near him at church function and walks behind him when he takes his exorcise He drives in a vehicle sombre and heavy drawn by two black stallions with flowing mane etcAmericas Cardinal affects none of these things He has no palace mit lives in an oldfashioned roomy mansion which if officially known as the Cardinals Residence and Is thus designated on the Cardinals stationery When he drives any where It is in a plebian cab hired for the occasion When he goes for a walk either for exercise or on business he goes alone his spare form being a familiar one on the streets of Baltimore His attire except when In the pulpit is of the plainest dif fering but little from that of any other priest save for the flat red scarf at his neck the zuchetto of the same

Mulberry and Franklin In what was formerly the most fashionable sec tion of the Monumental City Busi neighborhood time residents into other sections end leaving the Cardinals home surrounded by millinery tailoring and other establishments with here anf there a boarding house Extreme sim plicity marks the furnishings of the entire establishment The main railway is tiled and devoid of furni

opposite the Cardinals study is the offlve of Rev P C Gavan Chancellor of the Arch liocesc who together with Bishop Curtis the Vicar General Rev W T SecretaryRevthe parish and the Rev Louis Donovan constitute the Cardinals official family and live under his ooftree The domestic arrangements are in the hands of three Sin ers of Providence aided by Nathan a stalwart young colored man who icts as butler and man of all work and Harry a boy of about fourteen who answers tho doorbell and makes timself generally useful Not a very xpensive entourage for a prince of the Church The Cardinal arises at 6 oclock spends an hour in meditation and trayter says mass in the Cathedral and breakfasts at 8 Then he takes up his morning mail which includes otters from till parts of the country He then takes a walk and mingles with the people of Baltimore like any other American citizen Dinner at 130 p m after five hours of hard worka piece of meat no larger than a mans hand two egetobles a slice of bread

made good by the passage of laws that savor of extremism PRETTY CUSTOM One of the prettiest religious cus toms in nil tit world prevails tin Mexico No matter what may be tile station or wealth of individual members of a parish all are dressed alike when they attend church Womea may and do possess Parisian gowns but they are not for vulgar display in the house of God All women must dress for

writer after reading a poem in Voices from Erin makes these graceful observations Isnt that Irish and isnt it soulful and sWoet so much so that it almost causes one to wish he were Irish if he is not There is a soulfulness about Irish poetry not found in that of any other land and that is because the children of Ireland are so loving and so loyal No matter how far they may be from the island nor how kindly nor how badly the fates are treating them they are ever ready to sing a cheery heartsong for Ireland far away These songs appeal to those of us who are not of tho tribe of St Patrick and nil because they are sung from the heart out because they are true and because they are soulful The Irish minstrel laughs as he sings of the pleasures and pastimes and real tears trickle as he chants the sad stories of Ireland The flavor of Irish song is so rich and rso peculiar and so delightful that it cannot be mistaken nor can it be imitated even by those who are adepts at making poetry and experts in counterfeiting tone and flavor As you know a clever Irish song hath charms to soothe or to stir the heart of anyone who has a bit of sentiment in his makeup INCIDENT OF SHILOII During the
