KENT CK ISH AMERICAN 30 1909 PRICE FIVE CENTS VOLUME XXII NO 5 LOUISVILLE SATURn Y JANUARY i I CLOUDS Obscure Horizon of the Irlsl National Convention at Dublin Able Editor Fears tho Body Will Bo Decidedly Unwieldy Favord Objects to Be Attained But Doubts Course Outlined DEMANDS FREE DISCUSSION Appropos of the monster Irish Nationalist convention which Is scheduled to meet In Dublin on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week the editor of the Dundalk Democrat yokes his opinion thus There is a good deal of commotion in political circles in the South In connection with the constitution of the coming convention Protests are being made by William OBriens fol lowers against the exclusion of dele gates from the Land and Labor As sociation the alleged Inclusion of delegates from a similar body more recently formed and the establish ment of what are termed in the Cork debates bogus branches of the Unit ed Irish League Time town tenants also are indignant that they have not special representation for their as sociation and attempts are made to impeach the representative character of the convention- It appears to us that the fault in a convention of this kind sum moned for the specific purpose of dis cussing Blrrclls land purchase bill is not that It will be large enough but that it will be altogether too large A gathering of several thousand delegates met for the space of a few hours can not well be called a deliberative assembly Our experi ence of the last convention In connec tion wlh the Council bill was that such a gathering can not possibly give to a measure of Importance that calm and deliberate consideration that It requires A monster conven tion of the most fully representative character has Its uses but for the critical examination of n Parliamentary measure like BirrcMs is altogether too unwleldly In our opinion a convention for such purposes ought to be preceded byan assembly on a much smaller scale of say a hundred of the best men we have In Ireland representing all sections of popular opinion That assembly would not be expected to conclude its deliberations In one sit ting It would be Its duty to carp fully examine BirrcHs proposals in all their bearings nnd to arrive at definite conclusions which should then be submitted to till judgment of the monster convection In the case of the Council bill something approaching this teas done but with the important difference that tho private and preliminary conference which instructed John Redmond to move the rejection of the bill was not constituted of delegates specially appointed by the people for that pur pose but of the members of the Irish party and possibly a few other ad visers It Is true the country gen erally has placed its confidence In the party but for purposes of this kind the party might well take counsel with an assembly of the best men in the provinces specially selected to advise on matters of such import ance The County Councils provide a ready machinery for nominating such a council and of course the Na tional organization with its execu tive should not be overlooked As to the claim of the Land and Labor Association to special repre sentation at the convention we think tha whole question of repre sentation at conventions will have to be seriously considered and placed on a more satisfactory basis Either the official national organization and the public bodies must have as Is claimed by some the sole right to representation or else all societies of a national character must be equally admitted to representation The former would seem to be the simpler plan and tho one least open to abuse though we must say that a more strict and impartial enforce ment of the rules of the United Irish League will have to be adhered to if the claim of the conventions to public confidence is to be maintained The convention system has on the whole worked well but there have been abuses and scandals connived at by prominent officials and un checked by our leaders which in some places have introduced a strong feeling of discontent and sus plcl nlhls Is a matter calling for ei the consideration of the Divisional Executives and the public generally Domestic discontent Is the worst enemy of a political movement Free and open discussion and fair play to nil are the surest antidotes JUDQE DUNNE DECLINES I Hon Edward F Dunne former Mayor of Chicago

the United States census of 1800 has recently given some new figures on the religious census of the country These figures show that all the re ligious bodies in the United States gained 720Q17 members

estimated membershipof 12394731 This Dr Carroll explains means adherents rather than mem bers after the stricter fashion of the Protestant bodies Be that as it may the Roman Catholic church is by far the largest in this country and in the total church membership of 34000000 it must be credited with 12000000 or slightly more than one thirdNext to the Roman Catholics coma the Methodists North with
