I I KENTUCKY IRISH I AMERIcAN VOLUME XXNO 12 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY MARCH 21 1908 PRICE FIVE CENTS r REFORMERS Citizens arc Wondering if In Investigation Will Mean Anything Hints at Disgraceful Scandal In Fetter Franchise Are Broad The Fiscal Court Upset by the Reform Wave This Week DEMOCRAT IS LEGISLATED OUT Louisville merchants manufactur ers and citizens generally arc won dering what will be the outcome of the investigation by the General Council of the ways means and methods by which the now famous some call it infamous Fetter franchise ordinance was passed This ordinance passed at a recent meeting of the General Council grants the George F Fetter Company the ex elusive privilege of furnishing elec trie light and power in eleven of the leading commercial blocks in this city for the trifling sum of 5000 After the ordinance had been passed the people awakened to the fact that the city wsls being robbed The daily newspapers even began to cry out against tIle evil and Mayor Grin stead is withholding his signature until the investigation is completed But how will the investigation be conducted What will it reveal What will be the result in case any crookedness is shown It seemed that a great ninny Louisville voters and among them quits a number of Democrats wanted a reform city government All the Democratic office holders were crooks and grafters said the Fusion leaders and the Democratic sheep leaped over the fence in the wako of the Fusion bellwether Now that they find themselves In the mire they are pleading for some one to help them out They have found that tale Republican grafters are worse than the Democratic grafters and if they are only released from their present situation they arc willing to join in the thorns of an old Irish ditty It is better to live with the devils we know Than to live with the devils we dont know Since the new General Council be gan its deliberations there have been murmurings that some of the mem bers of the lower board were not above suspicion but the members of the upper board were classed us hightoned public spirited business men Arc they Did not a majority including President IIeJ urn indorse tine Fetter measure The daily press has infinitely more facilities for getting at the facts than a mere weekly paper If you do not believe it call on some of our business men and ask for an adver tisement for a weekly journal You will be told that they can not never tise a daily because the dailies areso infinitely superior in news matter Yet the dailies have only minted at scandal In connection with the Fetter franchise They hint at a dinner to members of both boards of the General Council at a Market street cafe they hint that money was used that jobs were promised If the editors of these papers know whereof they speak wfliy not tell it now Is it because the city printing contract is yet to be awarded If the investigation is to amount to anything at all it must be held with open doors the public and thy press must be admitted to its delib orations Then and and then only will the crookedness be shown The members of the General Council are the solo judges of their eligibility to office If there were enough Councilmen and Aldermen to pass the Fetter franchise ordinance there are enough of them to vindicate them selves and perhaps enough to pass the measure over Mayor GrlnsteadV veto should he incline to kill the measureThe Club the Retail Merchants Association the Clifton business men and many individual merchants and manufacturers have waited upon the Mayor and have naked him to withhold his signature lie it said to his credit that it was at his instigation the investigation was called forDut the Republicans have fallen out among themselves about It George A Newman Jr has taken Mayor Grinstead Marshall Bullltt and President Hey burn of the Board of Aldermen to task over the matter Where Mr Bullitt comes in is hard to tell He is neither ah Alderman nor a Councilman yet he chose to give an opinion that criticism of the methods by which the measure was passpd was unwise To this Mr Newman re pliesIf Mr Bullitt chooses to give a curbstone opinion that the Sunday editorial mats a mistake without con suiting the author for his reasons and being away as he was when the matter in question culminated thc- nthe is risking the charge of too great an interest in a matter the majority of our people and the entire press have condemned i Let the entire Investigation bo open and above board if there Is guilt list it be shown if there ia none no member of either board will OJrestunder suspicion While on the subject of reform it might be asked why did not the dally papers publish this proceedings of the Fiscal Court on Tuesday That body is made up of the County Judge and eight MagJp tratee four from the city and four cfrom the county of Jefferson That official body in Ito wild desire for reforms abolished theoUiMof Sup er= 1z snlary10fa salary of 0000 a year How iitS I that for reform The man who held the office that was abolished is a Democrat the man who gets the new office is a Republican On July 31 1000 Judge Charles A Wilson by the authority of the Fiscal Coitft appointed Josepd i Kevin Supervisor of County with a salary of 2000 a year On October 2 of the same year Mr Nevi was reelected by the Fiscal Court for a period of two years He hass been a street and road builder in this3 city and county for more than thirty years He has built more streets 1In Louisville than any other contractor and his ability as a practical road builder can not be questioned When ithe present charter of the city of Louisville went into effect Joe Nevi was made a member of its first Board of Public Works Everybody knows what ho has done for the city and for the county and yet on March 17 the Fiscal Court abolishes the office to which he had bee elected although his term will not expire until October 2 It was for economic reasons the Fiscal Court said Is it not in conflict with the statutes of Kentucky to legislate a man out of office Now mark you on the same after noon and at the same session of tlie Fiscal Court the office of County Engineer was Created at a salary of 500 a months and Mcrrltt Drane Republican was elected to the pine and to do the same work that Mr Nevin did for one third of the money Mr Drane is also County Surveyor Is it

holding the next Grand Council of the Young Mens Institute at Lebanon The information came from apparently reliable sources hence the publica tion The article of course attracts much attention and membersI throughout the Kentucky jurisdiction will be pleased when they read thet following from James T Shelley Dis trict Deputy Grand President for Kentucky and member of the Su premo Council- I was requested by the Grand President to investigate this report and after doing so I find that it was all a mistake as no council has ever made any objection to holding the meeting at Lebanon Please

tpie that tho Irish played a great part in the Revolutionary war Ameri can historians of the AngloSaxon 0 cult will try to convince their readers that the population of New England was the puro stock descended from the Pilgrim Fathers that landed on Plymouth Rock In1620 Mr Larkin quotes from the archives of the State of Massachusetts to prove that there was lots of Celtic blood in that State in Revolutionary times He says In partHere we find no less than sixty nine Fitzgeralds under various forms of spelling such as Michael Fetcharld of Haverhill John Fitch Jerll of Woburn Michael Fitchgerald of Bridgewater Patrick William Fltz of Salem John Fitts Gerll and several other Johns James and Michaels It seems the robust fighting Fitzgeralds were powerfully at the front protect ing the cradle of the republic The name Fish may be regarded as an English name It is recorded in the same volume in which the Fitz geralds appear that 117 Fishes de fended the infant republic But when we turn to OBrien under its various forms OBrian OBrlon OBryan Obrlne Obrien Obrlan Brien Brian Bryan Bryant Bryant and others we find no less than 366 in the fighting line Hero is the record from Volume 11 of Captain Jeremiah OBrian of Machlas who fought the first naval battle of the Revolution in Machlas Bay a short time before the battle of Bunker Hill an event which Feni more Cooper in his Naval History of the United States designates as the Lexington of the sea says the writer In the Boston Post Obrian Jeremiah Captain sloop Machlas Liberty list of officers of armed vessels commissioned

OBrien was named by the Hon John D Long when Secretary of tho Navy some years ago It seems that Captain Jerry was not only a sea fighter but a land soldier as well because he commanded a company of rangers In 1779 when Machlas was threatened by an Eng lish attack Two of his brothers were also naval officers There is quite a sprinkling of Pats and Dennises Mikes and Johns among those OBriens

is a picture of an Irish girl When that picture was painted by tho greatest artist of his time Miss 111u Dublin was scarcely sixteenyears old She had many admirers in Ireland then and later in England but it was to Richard Urlnsley Sheridan the greatest dramatist and orator of his time that she gave her heart and hand One of her aged admirers was very wealthy and ardently pressed his suit but was repulsed with the answer Money can not atone for such disparity in years replythatand told her to marry whom she pleased She was the daughter of Edward Linley an Irish musician Justin McCarthy M P an

slavery the spirit of the minstrel Is still with us even when the strings of the harp have been turned into banjo strings or the tongue of the Celt has to resort to the AngloSaxon language for ex pression Thomas Davis the poet pafrlttt of Ireland was one of these sweet singers lie was born in 1814 at a time whan Ireland was recover lug from the desolation that fol lowed the US movement While he wrote in song sonic of those who admired him most paid tribute to him in prose but what beautiful lan guage they use Listen to this from the pen of Justin McCarthy for years a leading member of Parlia ment The poem of Davis which is more dear to mo personally is that on the grave of Wolfe Tone In Bodenstown churchyard there is grJehld the winter winds rave Small shelter I weep arc the ruined walls there When the storm sweeps down on the plains of Kildare Tho first time 1 ever stood by Tones grave was a daysuch as seemed to chime in most fitly with graydaythe rank grass of the little churchyard and drowned the fallen autumnal leaves and washed the slab with its wild tears The scene the time tho very tempest seemed in melancholy harmony with Davis song Ireland was passing then through one of her darkest hours and that lonely grave that ruined place of death the wet earth and weeping skies and the desolate autumn wind which piped through the dripping trees the plaintive lirg like music of Davis verse all these sewned emblematic of Irelands suf fering of her wrongs her desolation The last time I stood by the grave tho scene was strangely different It was autumn indeed but a soft air as of earlier spring reigned over the Ivlldare meadows The sun shone brightly on the grassgrown mounds that rise and fall like the waves of a 11118wllosostrange splendor in that golden light The grave itself was dry and clear its inscriptions distinct Some reverent hands had suspended little relics on the railings that protect it Above stretched a summers sky below the green earth seemed rather to be instinct with the quickening pulses of a new year than to bear on its fair face tho fading liniments of autumn Tho aspect oftJho face was pro pitious benignly ominous Ireland had escaped from her sojourn in the Valley of the Shadow of Death her future was widening out before her promise which I seemed to witness as I stood beside Tones grave on that divine day when autumn wore the guise of spring and when the wInd which rivalled summers seemed to bear as its burden those brighter lines Sweet sweet His to find that such faith can remain To the cause and the man so long vanquished and slain Davis own grave does not quite realize tIle exquisite picture which he had painted for all time of iris own Ideal resting place His country could hardly be expected to obey his desire that no stone should mark his resting place but his epitaph is Indeed writ on his countrys mind He served Iris country and loved his kind and better epitaph no Irishman no man could desire to

English Govern anent have been forced ito admit recently that at least Irish traditions bear unmistakable evidence that the people have been unerring In handing down front generation to generatlon contain facts connected with their faith In a recent edition df the Mayo X iws is an interesting story connected with ithe pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick every year It says in partt Recently the Most Rev Dr Healy Archbishop of Tmnn trough W II GroittanFlood received a copy of n most interesting document issued by Pope JSageno IV in 1432 A word about low it was discovered Every scholar knows that in lUie Papal archives in name are Jtored up val sable records The acts of every Pope are there arranged in the order of time and so vast are these rec ords that the series now reaches tUft enormous number of 2150 huge vol umes It used to be alleged ithat the Roman authorities guarded these rec ords with a jealous care because they contained things tint could not PopeLeo cism and so with characteristic fearlessness lie threw these ancient archives open ito the world in 1891 and invited scholars of all nations to knowledgeEveryhastened to find out what these secret volumes contained about itself The British Government sent learned men to search diligently and ito tran scribe everything they could find re lating to England Ireland or Scotland The search is still going on Seven volumes have been published at intervals giving the results of their labors so far and the eighth volume which will be published in a few months contains the follow ing interesting document 27th day of September 1432 Pope Eugene IV grants to the Archbishop of Tuarm an indulgence of two years and two quarantine on the usual conditions for those penitents who visit and give alms to ward the repair of the fabric of the Chapel of St Patrick on the CroaghPaltrickon the Sunday preceding the feast of St Peters chains because on that day a great multitude resorts tidier to venerate St Patrick in the chapelMr has been assist ing in the Public Record office Lon don and when he came upon the above ho sent a copy to iris Grace of Tuam The Archbishop who has revive I tflve ancient pilgrimage t J Craagh Patrick and has erected a chapel on its lone summit was much gratified to have such authentic ev idence ithait the pilgrimage was Imown and approved in Rome 500 years ago Jocelyn itJie historian who wrote a life of St Patrick in 1185 tells us that In his own time multitudes of people were wont to ascend this holy mountain to watch and fast and pray on Ithe spot sanc tified by ttho watchings fastings and prayers x f the Irish national apostle The Irish annals bear us back still farther and tell us that thirty of the pilgrims lost their lives in a terrific thunderstorm on the summit in 1113 Indeed the ancient pathway up the graceful cone worn deep with the feet of pilgrims lur- Ing 1400 years bears ample testimony to the faithful tradition that from St Patricks time to our own his children have gone thither in the spirit of faith and penance to solicit his intercession oh the venerable spot hallowed by his prayers and be dewed with his tears The document of Pope Eugene is important for various reasons It shows that ithere had been a chapell on the mountain at least until 1432 and that tIle ancient pilgrimage was accustomed to bo held on a certain Sunday This Sunday is easy to determine because the feast of St Peters chains is the first day of August and the Sunday preceding JulyWhenreviving the pilgrimage three years ago ho inquired among the people if had any tradition regarding the day They said the belief that it was the last Sunday in July was handed down to them by their fathers ills Grace accordingly fixed the annual pilgrimage for that day and he now
