Father D J McDermott pastor of St Marys church permitfunol11John Daly one of his parishioners unless members of the Ancient Order vviould remain away from the church The Hibernians accepted with good grace and did not attend the funeral in a body In explanation of his attitude Father McDermott said My absolute opposition to the Ancient Order of Hibernians is based on my knowledge and the facts in my posses ian about the Molly Maguires which I the condemned MoByMguiresth- emselves No power on earth will ever makw me recede from my stand against tho Hibernians I have given my testimony against them and what I said was true and is true and Icon not compromise on it I have on my desk a memorandum which presenting read before the third plenary coun cil in Baltimore After I had pre pared tho documents under the direction of Dr Corcoran I was called before Archbishop Ryan here andnakedRboreustiox1t1 declared that it conaTned feature that would cause one of the greatest scandals tho

are aware that the facts that 1 have in sion against ithe Ancient Order of Hubornians are true and if made known they will cause the greatest kind of a scandal and I have a mind to give there vto the public When Archbishop Ryans attention was called to Patter McDermotts statement ho replied that he did not care to discuss the matter in anyway The most charitable View to take of Father McDermott is that he is laboring under ngrCat mental hallucination brought on perhaps by overwork He shows that there is something wrong with hs mentality when foe flans 811 the face of his Archbishop and Cardinal Gibbons after insulting the members of tlu Ancient Order of Hibernian and the Ladies Auxiliary which is founded pn the same principles lEiberriianfsm has nothing Ito do with the Molly jraguircs nor

Newspaper Correspondent Gives Hearty Approval to Latest Agitation LANDLORDS ARE CONSCIENCELESS There are many in America who blinded by the cablegrams published in proBritish papers in the larger cities of the country consider that Ireland is at present overrun by criminals of the deepest dye The latest crime cattledriving is con sidered more atrocious than night riding in Kentucky But for time greater part the editors of metro politan journals are fair They dblre to lay real facts before tne peop c when real news is apparent In ac cord with this idea W R Hearst onp of the journalistic

asIrislnnanamong the peasantry of conditions Ireland Mr Longs latest letter dated at Dublin January 4 says The worst fruit of the Red Indian System under which bullocks feed on green prairies while men and women starve on black bog land is that it is pauperizing Ireland I saw repeated in County Mayo whoa I saw before in Roscommon lint what I am assured is true of all Con nauglit thronged hungry hopeless bog villages which if itwere not for alms from America would be depeo pled within a year I visited today the villages of Murrish and Lftanoy They lie under the shadow of Croagh Patrick consecrated uy the prayers of Erins saint and crowned by a chapel to which 30000 persons ascend every July 29 I am asked to beltevo that St Patrick on Croagh Patrick forgot his breviary in Auchgower seven miles away and that the multitude of devotees was such that the holy book was passed from hand to hand over all the seven hula till it readied the mountniji top In those days people crowded the stony mountains to hear a saint now they crowd them back until they are shut out of the emerald unpeopled valleys because seeking bread in a sense more literal than the Scriptures they are given a

Clewbay can not be bought Old John Campbell of Murrish whose proud boast is that he was once in vited to run the oyster fisheries of Chesapeake Bay told me of a re turned American who paid 1501 merely to buy time tenant right not tilt freehold of five acres of stony soil and for the privilege of paying nn excessive rent to an absentee landlord West Mayo is crowded with Irish men and women who have spent five or ten years in America Even those who left too young ro remember the old country are drawn back by some mysterious hunger of the heart I have seen the conditions under which the Irish peasants are living in the West of Ireland I know the conditions in Russia and affirms that in the famine stricken empire of tthe Czar there is no community that lives more miserably slaves harder and looks more wretched than the Irish poor Nothing but inborn religion nothing but tin grunt philosophy bred by sevrn cen turies of oppression could keep this people from jumping into time ink black bog

Chicago neat another in New York Somebody Is to blame for othe fact that every criminal possesses a revolver It Iis the duty of both the State and city legislative bodies to enact such laws as will prevent us far as possible the purchase of deadly weapons by thugs and toughs One might go further and say that boys and irresponsible persons ought to be prevented from the purchase for possession of fire arms As it Is now the most desperate crook in the State con go to any gun store or pawn shop and buy the bdst weapon his purse will affordBe it said to the credit of the Louisville policfi that they have always been vigilant in arresting persons suspected of having deadly weapons in their possession but the courts have not always done their part in punishing those guilty of currying concealed arms The State Legislature ought to amend thee laws making the flue and Imprisonment- for this offense more severe and also to so amend the charter of thei city of Louisville as to permit the General Council to license the carrying of weapons Then the General Council should put capable men in clmrffd of these licenses men who would see that none tout responsible men would obtain the right do carry a revolver or a knife TilE TUBERCULOSIS HOSPITAL Everybody seems to be in favor of hospitals ifor the treatment of tuberculosis but none seems to want one located in Ms neighborhood The people near the City Hospital have enjoined the construction of ow on the west side The city authorities then started to build a tuberculosis hospital on the extreme east side of the City Hospital grounds but the neighbors have brought suit to enjoin its locution there The motion for a preliminary Injunction was argued before Judge KIrby on SFon dny and whs taken under advise mentThe Board of Tuberculosis Hospital a corporation created by an act passed ACarch 17 1006 has at tempted tlo buy 115 acres at Waverly Place near Valley Station in this county and ten miles out on time Illinois Central railroad adjacent to an interurban line and the Salt River turnpike A suit has also been brought to enjoin this location The public Ill aroused to the need of some place ito take care of this class of unfortunate people It is desired to treat those already afflicted and to prevent tore further spread of the disease The hospital must be lo cated somewhwe Time late Dr John A Oucnterlony left 115000 to the Fidelity Trust Company for the purpose That sum is available and the company is now looking for a location The late Mrs J M Bodlne recently bequeathed 25000 for tho same purpose The Tiatlonal sanatorium called tho Nones Hospital has a large fund and has already bought a farm and erected a hospital southeast of the Eruptive Hospital This is now in successful operation As the question is now before the courts and is being agitated in the newspapers we rtnko tIle liberty of suggesting that the proper solution of the matter is to locate the county and city tuberculosis hospital in the Mils southeast of the Nones Hospital and to locate the Ouchterlony Hos pital in the same neighborhood There will then bo a chain of hoe pitals commencing at the Almshouse and continuing through the Eruptive the Nones tho City and County and the Ouchterlony Tuberculosis Hos pitals Later might be added any others that the wealthy and char giveIrhoa much higher elevation than other sites mentioned and tlhls in itself lg better for she treatment of pulmonary diseases tar superior to the VaneySfThere is no more important question before rtho public nod il should bo decided properly It Is conceded thnttho location of the County Tuberculosis Hospital at Valley Sta tion would be ia great mistake which would be obviated by tho plan we propose GREAT PAPER However much one
