Bishop McFaul delivered the open- 
ing address to the convention. A4 
the very reverend prelate walked oolo 
the stage he was greeted with enthu- 
siastic applause. The delegates arone 
la their places and gave Kveral very 
hearty cheers. After the ailidaase 
had subsided the Bishop stepped to 
the front of the stage and delivered 
the following address, which wet 
interrupted many tinea by the 
plauding: ' 

"This endmaaalie greeting," he 
said, "renders it impossible to reatiein

"Disunion," the reverend speaker 
said, had rendered it possible for the 
poet to describe the woes of an Irish- 
man in a foreign land, as it had been 
done in the "Exile of Erin." The 
bishop then ably recited this pretty 
poem of Moore's, aad it pittMied 
much applause. 

Continuing he said: "Union among 
IridimeB also enabled our Cithers to 
stand shoulder to shoulder with oth-

assistance they gave to Washington

Just now there is general discus-

in some quarters to bring about an 
alliance, offensive and defensive, be-

of such an alliance is very remote and

William B. Sheehan, well known in 

Buffalo, N. Y., and now a gunner on 
the United States cruiser Concord, 
with Admiral Dewey's squadron, had 
the honor to fire the first shot in the 
battle of Manila. In a letter to his 
father he says: "I can say that I was 
at the gun that fif«d the first shot on

Corporal John J. Kelley, who was 
recently in Boston from Chickamauga 
recruiting, was given a reception by 
the members of Shields Division, A.

Brig. Gen. H. G. Otis, in command

The Iron Brigade unvailed the 

monument to their commander, Gen. 
Gibbon, in the National cemetery at 
Arlington, last week, and presented 
it to his iismily. 



At the time of the memorial serv- 

ices in Havana cemetery over the 
graves of sailors who went down in 

the Maine Father Chidwick asked eludes the proposition of freedom from 

alliance with other nations as an essen- 

T. Morgan, of Alabama, declares 
against alliance. Of the Senator the 

correspondent says: 

There is probably no man in public 
ijlifii more competent to deal with such 
a subject than the distinguished Ala- 
bama statesman. For twenty years 
he has been recognised as an author- 
it^Oa internationni relations as well 
as on the constitutional law of the 
United States. For some time Chair- 
man of the Committee on Forri,;!! 
Relations, and now an esteemed mem- 
ber of that committee, he has held 
front rank with publicists who have 
to deal with the delicate problems 
relating to our foreign policy. His 
service has been a continual demon- 
stration of the fact that the confidence 
of his colleagues in his judgment was 
not misplaced. Senator Morgan not 
only holds high ground of informa- 
tion upon our relations with foreign 
countries, controlled by our estab- 
lished policies, but he is acquainted 
with the attitude of foreign nations 
toward one another. The politics of 
Europe is an open book to him. 

With reference to our occupancy 
and holding of the Philippines the 
Senator was asked: 

"You see nothing then, consequent 
upon the handling of the Philippines 
question which should require us to 
make alliance with other nations?" 

"Connected with any event that is 
likely to grow out of our relations to 
the Philippines, that is now within the 
range of probabilities, there is no 
ooaisioo to desire a league or com- 
bination with any Eu opean or Asiatic

The til-day outing for the pupils 

of the Sunday school at the Domini- 
can church will occur on July 7 at 
Flm Grove. Two boats will run, 
morning and afternoon — 9:30 and 
1:30. The outing was arranged to 
give the children a day's pleasure 
and the teachers and the pupils will 
go free. The whole congregation and 
their friends are invited, and for 
them there will be a nominal charge 
to help defray the expense. The best 
of order will be maintained. The 
teachers have worked hard thia year 
and Father I.ogan wished to show his 
appreciation and arranged the ex- 
cursion. An interesting feature of 
the excursion will be the rnntest for 
a fine wheel and a beautiful watch. 
~ The contestanto are Misses Sallie 
O Connor, Katie Purcell, Loretta 
Aherii, Nellie Kerr and Carrie Swift. 
Refreshments and' lunches will be 
served on the boats and grounds. A 
pleasant outing is iiromised to all. 

Sunday-school teaching, as well as 
"most gratuitous work, is a thankless 
task. With the ardent co ojieration 
of superintendent it is still hard work. 
But thera seems no lack of enthusias- 
tic workers at the Dominican church. 
The teachers there must have in 
mind those words which said that the 
teaching in the Sunday-school was 
the most meritorious act of charity 
that could be performed. One fa- 
miliar face will be missing from the 
■ throng this year — thai of Rev. (). 
A. Carr, the former beloved superin- 
tendent of the Sunday-school. 

The additions to the parish house 
at St. John's have about been com- 
pleted and they are a very gieat 
improvement. The house has been 
remodeled and enlarged to accom 
modate an assistant. Father Bax

Catholics of this great country are 
to be congratulated on the establish- 
ment of a university for women on 
the same broad lines as. the men's 
universities. The site of this college 
for women is to be at the entrance ol 
the University grounds. The Sisters 
of Notre Dam* are to be in charge, 
and the patronesses are among the 
most notable women in the country 
in the East and as far West as North ' 
Dakota and Montana. Miss Olive 
Risley Seward, the daughter and for 
many yean th« secretary of William | 
H. Seward, is President of the Board 
of Regente. Ground is to be broken 1 
shortly, and the ceremonies on this I 
occasion will be of an imposing na- 
ture. Trinity Hall, for so the col- 
lege will be called, will be conducted 
on the lines of Vainr, Wellesley or 
liryn Mawr. 

I'he commencement season has 
closed, and with it a grfeat many 

young men and women have been 
lyunched on the world fitted to. look 
out for themselves. The most notable 
of all always is that at Na/areth, the 
dear Alma Mater of so many Louis- 
ville girls. The one this year was 
unusually fine, and, added to the 
presence of Bishop McCloskey, who 
always graces the occasion there was 
the appearance of Monsignor Conaty, 
rector of tlje university at Washing- 
ton, who addressed a few well-chosen 
words to the graduates. The Xav 
erian brothers, the Presentation 
Academy 'and Our Lady of Mercy 
came in the front rank of those in the 
city. .Amon^ 'he parochial schcwls 
St. John's is among the first, this year 
only adding to iu already jostly estab- 
lished reputation.

A new statue of Our Lady of 

Lourdes is to be blessed at the 10:30 
o'clock mass to-day I July 3J at the 
church of St. Louis Bertrand. The 
statue is a work of art and it do- 
nated by Miss Marshall, a convert 
to the faith. The grotto at this 
church is a resort of the pious, and 
carries one's thoughts to that scene 
in France where our Blessed Lady 
appeared to Hernadette, the bwly 
shepherd girl. It is a faithful repro- 
duction of that now famous scene, 
and the new statue will complete the 

The shrine of Our Lady of Per- 
petual Help at the church of St. Mary 
Magdalene, is to be enlarged and 
beautified. This is a devotion dear 
to the lieait uf i'aiher Deppen, and 
he has determined to make the shrine 
one of the finest in the country. 

The last mass at the Dominican 
church during the summer months 
will be at 10:30 instead of 1 1 o'clock. 
It will also be a low mass, the choir 
having beeu dispensed with in the 
heat of the day. On the resumption 
of the Sunday school in the fall the 
mass will be changed to the old time. 

On Sunday, July 10, Rt. Rev. 
Bishop McCloskey will confirm the 
children at the Dominican church at 
3:30 in the afternoon. This rite was 
postponed from June, 19 on acoount 
of 'oBllllneas.of the Bishop.

In the celebration of the Fourth 
this year the Irish-Americans will be 
to the fore. An Igshman will al- 
ways retain within bis breast the love 
of his mother country, but above that 
will be found the love of his Adopted 
country. In wftaess of this see how 
many Irish names are on the rolls of 
the army and navy, especially among 
the volunteers. Brave as helalways 

ernians, anu 
their desire was accomplished lasi 
Sunday,, when John J. Barrett, of this 
city, who is acting as State Organixer 
during the absence of State President 
Martin Cusick, accompanied by W. 
T. Meehan, James P. Taylor, Robert 
Mitchell, David O'Conn.ell, T. M. 
Sullivan and R. G. Cunningham, 
slipped quietly iij) to Frankfort and 
organized the new division. 

The Frankfort boys had made all 
arrangements to receive the delega- 
tion and spared neither pains nor 
money to have them enjoy their trip 
to the capital city. The delegation 
left Louisville over the C. and O. 
8:30 a. m. Sunday and arrived at 
Frankfort at 10; 15 and were escorted 
to the Church of ihe Good Shepherd. 

After an elaborate spread at the 
Capital Hotel the visitors were shown 
the principal poinU of interest abput 
the place. 

At 3 o'clock the meeting was called. 
Chairman John Barrett stated the 
object of the order and the benefits 
derived from membership and ap- 
pointed the following officers tf) as- 
sist him in the work of organiisaiion: 
J. P. Taylor, Vice President; F. G. 
Cunningham, Recording Secretary; 
W. T. Meeham, Standing Com.; D. 
O'Connell, Treatyrer; Robert Mitch 
ell, Sergeant at'Ams; T. M. Sulli- 
van, Sentinel. 

Twenty applicantt were initiated. 
The division elected the following of- 
ficers: D. J. McEUigott, President; 
Jerry Corbett, Vice President; D. J. 
McNamara, Recording Secretary; Pat- 
rick Coleman, Jr., Financial Secre- 
tary; Patrick O'Brien, Treasurer; 
James Lillis Sentinel; Owen Roth, 
Sergean t-at- A rms . 

After the newly elected officers 
were installed lUv. Father Major was 
introduced, and in the course of his 
remarks paid a high compliment to 
the fidelity and nobility of the Irish 
people, and concluded by saying that 
wherever he had the gooid fortune to 
have a division of the A. O. H. in 
his parish he always felt confident of 
the assistance and support of a ready 
and capable friend. 

The newly organized division will 
close its charter with a membership of 
about 100. The Louisville bovs will 
never forget their trip to Franfort on

Hereafter this paper will 
be issued so that it will reach 
all our readers on Saturday. 
We started o£f on the Fourth

patriotic Mrtj-ji^American 
friends, but Saturdaywl!* be 
'the reguW iMblia^tion day. 
To begin with, everytSf^if had 
to be done in • hnrry, and it 
is hoped to make improve- 
ments in all departments. 

We intend to slight^ no- 
body. There are a large 
miniber of business men in 
Louisville and vicinity w .io 
jjjlwant to advertise with *^

lable ad-f 
n for all who 
be a good field for 
uiblication of- 
iper of the character we in 
tend to make this one. It is 
up-hill work, many people 
tell us, but we feel much more 
than encoun^ied. We are 
delighted with the outlook. 
Friends have offered ns great 
encotmigement, and we are 
confident the undertaking can 
be made a successful business 
enterprise as well as a pleas- 
ure to our readers. 

Our friends will oblige us 
by sending in advertisements 
and subscriptions. Already 
several have done so without 
asking, and we appreciate 
this very much.

The Iriihman is no stranger m 
Kentucky. Before George Rogers 
Clark eame to Louiaville in 1777 
there were Irishmen here, and with 
Clark were many Irish soldiers, 
notably Col. George Croghan. A 
Htt of the private soldiers who fought 
under Clark, which may be teen at 
the Polytechnic Society Library, dis- 
closes the fact that more than half 
were of Irish ancestry.

This will not be advocated on relig-

Declaration itself is in the handwrit- 
ing of an Irishman— Charles Thomp 
son. Secretary of Congress. It waa 
first printed by Capt Thomat Dun- 
lop, an Iriihman, who pubUthed the 
first newspaper in .\merica. The 
Declaration was first read to the peo- 
ple by another Irishman, Capt. John 
Nixon. We read o^ and glory ia,

It is estimated that there are 75,- 
000,000 people now in these United 
States. Statistics show that 6,000,000 
people have come to diis country from 
IreUnd, making diia nadonality have 
29 percent of the total population 
by birth or descent. This would 
make the total Irish-American popu- 
Udon 31,750,000. Up to 1850 the 
Iriah constituted 4S per cent of the 
European immigrants, and the esti- 
mate made is not givin|^ the Irishj 
more than their due. , 
All of those a 1,000,000 have resson 
to foci glad when the Fourth of July 
comes around, for their forefathers 
shed their blood that the immortal 
words thould be proclaimed. 

As it wu b the Revolution, in the 
war of I Sis and snbsequendy, so it 

and try. 

In our next issue we will publish in 

full the Fourth of July oration of the 
Hon. Matt O'Doherty. This of iuelf 
will render our next issue one that 
abotild be much loaght after and 
widely read. Mr. O'Doherty'a repu- 
tation as one of the leading orators of 
the present day is too widely known 
to need further comment. 

The Indiana Democrats put a 
strong labor plank in their platform. 
When the Kentucky Democrats meet 
they should do the saiae. They could 
do no better dun to oa^ the Indiana 

throughout the United Statea for the 
purpose of rendering more uuiformity 
and establishing firmly the basis upon 
which credits in every branch of com- 
mercial enterprise may be founded; 
for the reformation of laws unfovor- 
able to honest debtors aad cred)|fon; 
dM eaactmeat of lawa beaeficial to 
eooimerce throughout the several 
States; the gathering and distemina- 
tioa of data la relatioa to the aidiject 
of credits, and the provision of a ftmd 
for the protection of membert againtt 
fraud and injustice. 

He also stated that good work has 
already been done by the local atto- 
ciations ia Texas, Missouri, Ohio and 
various other States. Nothing hat 
been done, however, in Kentucky, 
but with a little more enthusiasm 
aroused no doubt much good can be 

The organization at Detroit repre- 
sented 350 firms, with a working cap- 
ital of $600,000,000 and a yearly bus- 
ines of over two billion dollars. 

"I thank you for the privilege of 
being present with you today, and 
hope that it win be my good foctoae 
to meet every one of yoU, petSOaaOy, 
during thit week." 

The Bidiop aest btroduced P. J. 
O'Connor, of Savannah, Ga., National 
Presideat^of the American wing of the 
order. In presenting Mr. O'Connor 
the Bishop said |hat he was a man 
who had the interest of the organisa- 
tion at heart for many years and wha 
had left nothing undone to bring 
about the reunion of the order. 

Mr. O'Connor, in reply to che ad- 
dress of welcome of the Bishop aad 
Mayor, made a very eloquent ad- 
dress. "The cordial greeting ex- 
tended ns by his Lordship, Bishop 
McFaul, is highly appreciated," he 
said. "Through his earnest and pa- 
triotic effijrts we are here to complete 
the unification of our people and re- 
ceive hit blessing. The city of Tren- 
ton is brisding with inspiring and 
historic memories, and the grand re- 
sult achieved for Hibemianiam therein 
will long be remembered. We are 
glad to be among our New Jersey 
brethren, composed of men of true 
manliness, high moral character, emi- 
nent ability, devotion to holy church, 
loyalty to American institutions and 
with love for the Emerald Isle. We 
will carry with us from the gates of

the efforts of the people to nuke this

After telling of the deeds of valor 
of Irithmea ia the former W9rt in 
which thit country took part, Mr. 
O^Connor said: "In the present con- 
flict our people are nobly doing their 
pU't, and the most brilliant pages of 
history, when written, will be il« 
liimined by the brave deeds and valor 
oiour people. And friends, there it 
o^e consolation I extract out of the 
ptesent conflict, and that it is hat 
wiped out the dividing lines that to

Mr. Burke's trip to Detroit was one 
of much pleasure. Many other prom-

good chances for election. 

We foel proud of Mr. Burke and

Naturally every one wishes to cele-

question is, How shall we celebrate 
it? One usually puts many questions 
to himaelf aa to how aad where he 
can get the HKMt enjoyment for his 
money. The Hiberaiaas have helped 
to solve that questioa for the Fourth

As to the programme, we can say 
withost fisar of beiag criddaed that 
ao other amusement resort will put up 
a better entertainment than that 
which will take place at Phoenix Hill 

The Hibernians naturally feel proud 
of the very prominent part which the 
sons of Ireland have taken ia aiaking 
the history of this country from the 
time when Dongan called together 
%e Legidatore of New York to 
frame new laws for the colony, 
among which was one granting lib- 
erty of coasdeaee to all its citisens, 
down to the present. 

They love to congregate on Inde-

noble and patriotic deeds of our race. 
This year they have made arrange, 
meats to have Hoa. Matt CDoher- 
ty make an address, and the public 
may rest assured that the effort of Mr. 
(VDoherty on this occasion will be up 
to the usual standard. Other speak- 
ers will make addresses on subjects 
relating to the day we celebrate. 

After the speaking the Knights, 
although their ranks have been de- 
pleted by those who joined the army, 
will give an exhibidon driU. 

St. Patrick's Cadets will also give 
an exhibition drill, and we can assure 
an diet it win be a sight wordi seeing 
to T7atch these little fellows go 
through the various evolutions with 
the preciakm of trained soldiers. 

Another feature of the entertain- 
ment will be dancing for the younger 
element, which wfll commeace at 2

till the dose. If there is a parson on 
earth who can make yon feel at home 
it u the man with Celtic blood in his 
veins. And we wi|b to aarare the

■eiiiornto llic Striifrvrit'— Grat* 
Ua E«Bi«n4«'s Speech. 

A magnificent demonstration took 
plact at Vinegar Hill, Wexford, on 
Whit Sunday, in honor of the gallant 
heroes who foaght in the battle on that 
historic spot loo years ago. Not less 
than 40,000 people were present. 
Notwithstanding ita enormona propor- 
tions, the gathering was one of the 
roost orderly that has ever met in the 
county. A monster proceMion waa 
formed at the Fair Green, Ennis- 
corthy, which marched to the hill, 
followed by thoataiids of other peo- 
ple. Notable and s])iritcd addresses 
were made, and the greatest enthusi- 
asm was manifested. 

Sir Thomas Grattan Esmonde de- 
livered an able speech, in the course 
of which he made a strong indictment 
against England   oih crning her treat- 
ment of Ireland. He said in part; 

"A year ago the people of England 
celebrated their jubilee. They cele- 
brated the growth of their empire; 
the extension of their power; the de- 
velopment of their institutions; the 
increase of their wealth and prosper- 
ity. In that celebration every one of 
their colonies and dependencies was 

represenied. But the nation which 
had played a foremost part in build- 
ing vp England's greatness; the na- 
tion that had won htr battles for her, i 
had governed her colonies for her, 
directed her diplomacy for her ; that 
nation — Ireland — was not represented 
at those festivities. Ireland refused 
to Join in them, and rightly refused. 

"For what had Ireland to cele- 
brate, as the result of her connection 
with England, in the period covered 1 
by those celebrations? How many 
famines had there been in Ireland 
during those years? Was she to cele j 
brate them? How many millions of 
her children had been lost to Iut in 
those ycarh? Was slie to (clcl • 

Jbfir fliiniMiraranni'. - .Uttw-r*M*, 

it will never be given to any nation 

to achieve. There is one dis.istcr 
that will never fall upon Ireland while 
the world endutes, and that is th£ re- 
moval from Ireland's grateful and 
loving memory of the name and fame 
of those who, at any time and under 
any circumstances, have lived or died 
in defense of Ireland's nationhood. 
Foremost among Ireland's heroes are 
the men of '98. And foremost among 
the heroes of '98 are the men of Wex- 
ford. We are here to-day ' to cele- 
brate their jobUet, proudly, lovingly, 
and to place on record our apprecia- 
tion of their heroism in a manner be- 
fitting their descendants. We owe 
no allegiance to England. ?he has 
always treated Ireland as a rival, as 
an enemy. I see but little indication 

as yet that she will ever treat her 
Otherwise. She has deprived us of 
our ancient constitution by force and 
by fraud.' She is overtaxbf us year- 
ly to the amount of ;^3tOoo,ooo of 
Irish money. She takes advantage 
of us, under her perpettial disguise of 
generosity, in every transaction of 
every kind, whether it be the dises- 
tablishment of a church or the passing 
of a local government bill. England 
has no more right to rob us than she 
has nde us; yet she does both by her 
superior strength. 

"We submit to force, because wc 
have no alternative. England is 
stron;.; enough to deny us our rights 
for the present. We know we have 
no chance of fighting her. It would, 
no doubt, be very much more satis- 
factory if we could settle our differ- 
ences with England in the same 
fashion as was used at Benburb, at 
Fonlenoy, and on Oulart Hill. But 
under existing conditions such a set- 
tlement is out of the question. Eng- 
land is strong enough to keep us 
down for the presene, and we know 
we have no chance of resisting her in 
arms. But will she always he strong' 
enough to keep us down by force ?

That Daniel V. Murjihy is an Irish- 
American whom the general public 
greatly respects there is aoqoMtion. 
He is conceded to be the ablest and 

and America, in recent times. We 

Irish are but a weak people; we have 
no empire; we have often been beaten 
in the course of our history. But no 
man has ever been able to say of 'us 
that we have been afraid. We have 
never hesitated to stand up for wbat 
we believed to be. our rights, regard- 
less of consequences. We do aot 
know ourselves what cowardice is. 
But we know what it means in others. 
And when we see England surrender- 
ing, retreating, giving way now to 
Russia, now to Germany, and now to 
France, whenever any of these pow- 
ers fmd fault with her policy, we 
know it is because she feels henj^ 
powerless to resist them. She dare fot 
fight with a hostile Ireland on ker 
flank. And well they know this 

abroad. But the nation that fears to 
face a challenge will not have long to 
wait before a quarrel is forced upon 

"And England will have reason, to 
rue the day she rejected Ireland's 
proffered friendship unless she reme- 
dies her mistake in time. For the 
moment she is strong enough to co- 
erce Ireland. How much longer will 
she be strong enough to coerce Ire- most efFcient official who has held this

he add 

e(l~clfcun»tance that coercion is now 
perpetual? And what other advan- 
tages had she to chronicle as the re- 
sult of her connection with England? 
Was she to rejoice because it has re- 
quiied periodic approaches to civil 
war to compel England to recognise 
any of her grievances? Or because 
Englond's remedies for Ireland's Eng- 
lish-made grievances have invariably 
been carried out at IreUnd's expense? 
— now at the expense of one class of 
Irishmen, and now at the cost of an- 
other? Was Ireland to celebrate the 
fact that all through these years Eng- 
land has steadily and remorselessly 
drained her of her resources and her 
wealth by ever-increasing taxation? 
Was she to rejoice because, under 
England's fiscal laws, each of her in- 
dustries had been crippled and de- 
stroyed one by one, and all sections 
of her population reduced to poverty? 
And when an English Commission of 
Inquiry was itself forced to admit 
that England was bleeding Ireland to 
death, was Ireland to rejoice because 
this report was promjitly repudiated? 
And finally, was Ireland to rejoice in 
that the one persistent and unvarying 
demand, which for ninety-eight years 
now she has addreued to England, 
via.: the recognidon of her ancient 
nationality, has been over and over 
again persistently refused. 

"No!' IreUnd, poor as she is, plun- 
dered as she is, insulted as she is, 
had still courage and honesty suffic- 
ient to decline to participate in the 
rejoicings of an empire in which Na» 
tionalist Ireland has no place. 

"But to-day we celebrate a jubilee 
of our own — a jubilee in which 
all Irishmen can join; a jubi- 
lee which all Irishmen are glad 
and proud to celebrate; a jubilee we 
celebrate all the more lovingly, all 
the more reverently, for that, like 
nearly all of IreUnd's historic mem- 
ories, it comes to us sanctified by 
Irish blood and hallowed by Irish 
tears. We have few successes to 
chronicle in our history. Our suc- 
cesses are mainly chronicled in the 
histories of other peoples. On the 
other hand, we have many disasters 
to leoord. But there is one succeu 

one thing certain, namely, that Eng 
land will not be able to resist the 
eventual recovery hy In land of her 
legislative independence. The times 
we live in are full of portents. The 
great nations of the world are devel- 
oping, expanding, arming; commer- 
cial and political rivalry among them 
is becoming more and more intense. 
The spirit of war is abroad. And 
while the great continental powers 
seem to respect each other's claims 
and as| irations, there is one jiower 
against which their undisguised and 
united antagonism is directed. That 
power is England. England is the 
possessor of a vast and valuable em- 
pire; but it is an empire easy to attack 
and difficult to defend. And 
although England is rich and the 
owner of the most powerfid navy on 
the seaa, she is neither rich enough 
nor strong enough to withstand the 
all but universal coalition which is 
being plainly arrayed against her. 
Her one possible ally is the United 
States of America. She is very anx- 
ious, far more anxious than her 
statesmen wouIJ care to admit, to 
cement an alliance with the United 
States. What chance has Bbf^d of 
protecting this alliance? So long as 
she refuses to concede the jus) cUims 
of Ireland, At has none whatever. 
Our race is far more powerful in the 
great Republic than it is at home. 
And the United States can never be 
friendly to England while Ireland is 
treated like a conquered province. 
And while the spirit lives which 
prompted the United States to draw 
the sword on behalf of oppressed and 
enslaved Cuba, the great Republic 
will never hold out die hand of 
friendship to England, the oppressor 
of Ireland, that mother of so many 
millions of American citixens, of so 
many of the heroic leaders and fear- 
less soldiers of America's own war of 

"The moral of the history of the 
past few years has not been lost upon 
us. We appreciate as fully as they 
do in England, as fully as it is appre- 
ciated abroad, what is the significance 
of the long list of EngUnd's 'grace- 
ful concessions,' and 'surrenders,' 
and 'retreatk,' in Europe, Asia, Africa 


^ear to our c(|n- 

stiiutional demands, while she refi^ses 
to restore to us those legislativeyj^ibw-

so cruelly in 1800, we are enemies of 
England, we are enemies of the Em- 
pire, we are rebels in sentiment, and 
should occasion offer, we will be 
rebels in act and deed." 7

The Commercial Club, one of the 
most piogressive organisations in 
Louisville, has arranged an old-fash- 
ioned Fourth of July celebration, to 
be held at Fountain Ferry Park. The 
exercises will begin at 4 o'clock. The 
Louisville Music Festival Chorus 
will sing patriotic songs under the di- 
rection of Mr. C. H. Shackelton. A 
full brass band will accompany the 
chorus. The Dedaration of Inde- 
pendence will be read. Hon. Henry 
Watterson, Hon. E. J. McDermott 
and Judge Sterling B. Toney have 
been invited to be present and ad- 
dress the crowd. 

The exersises, under the manage- 
ment of the Commercial Club, will 
last about two hours, and will not in- 
terfere with the attractions arranged 
by the Louisville Otm Qub and Ger- 
man societies. 

Keyer cleverly nrited ".\ Little 
Boy's Speech. The larger girls re- 
cited in concert "Erin's Flag." 
"Those Wedding Hells Shall Not 
King Out" was sung by Master Geo. 
Thompson. "The Gypsy Girl" was 
given by the intermediate dejiartment. 

One of the most popular numbers 
was '*Three Little Boys from School" 
— a parody on "Three Little Maids 
from School." Thomas J. Keenan, 
John Hourigan and George Thomp- 
son took the parts of the "Three 
Little Boys." 

One of the prettiest features of the 
entertainment was the "The Sickle 
Drill" by the girls. Those who took 
part were :

Trom Wathincion I'lct 

Editor Post — I have read in the 
Post of this morning an article uken 
from the New York Times, and 
headed, "The Irish and the Alliance. " 
•The Tinies has never been remark- 
able for friendliness toward the Irish, 
just now it suits its purpose to 
pat the Celtic wolf-hound on the head 
and say, "Good dog," after the man- 
ner of its kind. What right has it to 
 loubt the "loyalty" of I''*-A« eri' 
»cans? The trouljle is that most of 
the Anglomaniacs hate the jrish be- 
cause their "loyalty" to American 
■ institutions cannot be shaken. The 
Irish believe, with their illustrious 
countryman, Henry Grattan, that the 

• United States is "the last refuge of 
the liberties of mankind." They op- 
pose the alliance with England be- 
"^caitit they honestly believe that such 
a compact would destroy that "last 

• refuge.'' The Tory wave of feeling 
how swcei^ng over the , country 
threatens America with the humilia- 
tion of returning to the vomit of Brit- 
ish rule which it threw np in 1776. 
There are "Americans" who mutilate 
the Stars and Stripes in order to stitch 
it t0 the English Union Jack. Con- 
gress should pass a law to hang such 
"Americans" as traitors, or else exile 
them perpetually from the country 
they disgrace. The only traitors to 
the American flag, constitution and 
laws are the Anglomaniacs. They 
4alk of territorial extension in imiia- 
tion of Knj^lish imperialism. What's 
the matter with doing missionary work 
in Canada, Jamaica and Nassau — 
England's base of supijjy for block- 
ade running during the civil war — in 
favor of annexation? There is a large 
annexation party in Canada, hut it 
has received very little encourage- 
ineat from us. The American peo- 
ple, or a large section of them, appear 
to be rapidly forgetting their history 
and traditions, and some of them have 
descended to the meanness of apolo- 
gizing for our glorious past. They 
would eliminate from our school his- 

inde]iendenre. F.very citi,ten who 
protests against the proposed "entan- 
gling alliance" is dubbed a "tail 
twister." Such cheap cant daunts 
only moral cowards. No man need 
be ashamed to be called a "tail twis- 
ter" in common with George Wash- 
ington, Thomas Jefferson, James Mad- 
ison, James Monroe, Andrew Jack- 
son and Ulysses Grant. Under the 
latter's administration England was 
made to pay $15,000,000 for her 
piracy during the war of the rebel; 

Alliance with England would im- 
mediately stop Irish recruiting in our 

armies. In every engagement since 
this war began, as in all former wars, 
Irish blood has been shed for Amer- 
ica. It is unnecessary to eulogize 
the Irish soldier. His record is the 
certificate of his valor and his devo- 
tion. I would hate, however, to see 
his constancy strained by forcing him 
to aerve with British troops. Were 
it not for the strong counterpoise of 
solitary discipline,  v^h no man 
more respects, the ../zle of his gun 
would point to" "ji the red coats as 
truly as the neeule points to the pole. 
He would obey his officers, but his 
civilian brother would not volunteer 
to re-enforce him. No English alli- 
ance would make up for this defec- 
4ioo. Instead of the Irish becoming 
"less Irish and more American," as 
the New York Times puts it, 1 sin- 
cerely wish the Anglomen of the 
United States would become less 
British and more American. The 
Irish are the truest Americans on this 
soil today. They wish to keep the 
United Sutes a Republic — they have 
no disposition toward imperial sys- 
tems. Theybelievfc in vantage points, 
coaling stations and harbors of re- 
fuge for our ships in Hawaii, the Phil- 
ippines, the West Indies and else- 
where, but they have no desire to 
grab territory from weak nations, af- 
ter the British fashion. Mr. Hep- 
burn, of lowz, in his speech favoring 
territorial expansion, while debating 
Hawaiian annexation in the House 
Wednesday, spoke of the "blessings" 
of civilization England carried with 
her in her imperial progress. He 
forget to mention the famines and 
massacres that have invariably at- 
tended her march .atoond the gl 

India has not yet recovered from the 
depletion of the recent famines, whose 
victims were numbered by the mill- 
ion. Today the Irish-Americans are 
engaged in raising funds — see the 
Irish World, Boston Pilot, and other 
Irish-American publications — to save | 
the Irish people of the coast regions 
in Connaught and Ulster from starva-' 
tion. This, too, when England, by , 
the acknowledgement of her o'wnj 
government commissioners, is rob- j 
bing Ireland annually of $15,000,000 
in excess of h^r legitimate taxation. 
Oh, England is a beautiful country 
to keep away from. God save Amer- 
ica. John F. Finertv. 


It is almost too hot at this period of 
the year for the sweltering public to , 
devote much thought to base-ball, ! 
pugilism and the sports, and besides 
the war has absorbed the attention of j 
every one. In spite of these hind- , 
rancea, the Case-Dobs fight is attract- 
ing a marked amount of interest. Es- 
pecially will this be true in the event | 
of Dobbs winning over the Oregonian. 
Although Case was given a terrible | 
beating before, and finally knocked j 
completely out in the last round and 1 
almost the last ten seconds, he gave a 
good account of himself all the way 
through, and at no time after the sec- 
ond round did the colored man hold 
him cheap 

In New York there are several big 
fights on hand, not the least among 
them being the Ruhlin Sharkey con- 
test, which is set for June^ 29. Maher 
and Goddard are toon to come to- 
gether again, and unless another ac- 
cident happens, what a akughter it 
wUl be. 

The battle between George Dixon 
and Hen Jordan will also prove a 
strong attraction, as it is an inter- 
national affair. Jordan is the best 
feather weight England has produced 
since Nunc Wallace. 

"Kid" McCoy undoubtedly has, 
outside of Corbett, the best head for 
financial affairs of any man in the 
ring to-day. When any of the slick 


of him they will have to stay up all 
night. The fight between the "Kid"' 
and Choynski has been set for Augtist 

There is some talk of bringing 
Lansing and McDonough together 
before the Kentucky Athletic Club 
for some time in July. McDonough 
is the man who fought a draw with 
"Australian Jimmy" Ryan last Derby 
night. A contest between him and 
Lansing ought to prove an exceeding- 
ly interesting contest 

Base-ball has suffered more than 
any other sport from the war, but 
then the poor showing of the Col- 
onels has had a great deal to do with 
the falling off in attendance here in 
Louisville. The fans are getting 
tired of going down to the park year 
after year to watch a tail-end club get 
everlastingly lambasted by one of the 
other eleven cluba. Louisville has 
not had a winning team since it en- 
tered the big League, and something 
is radically wrong. If there is a hoo- 
doo why don't some of the directors 
take steps to have that hoodoo dis- 
covered and done away with? 


The Mose Green Club opened iu 
camp at Callahan's, on the river road 
above the Water-works, on Simday. 
The camp may be reached either by 
driving along the river road or by the

In his great speech, delivered in 
the House of Representatives at Wash- 
ington, on the Hawaiian annexation 
resolution, the Hon. Champ Clark, of 
Missouri, said: 

"Jingdism is more rapid in 'its prog- 
ress than quick consumption. So 
virulent is it that many we now advo- 
cating an alliance with England— 

certainly the most preposterous idea 
that was ever hatched in the brain of 
man. Are we to give no heed to the 
lessons of history? Are we to scout 
the wisdom of the fathers? Are we 
to take leave of our senses because we 
are engaged in a struggle with a third- 
rate power, which if vigorously pressed 
will'be gloriously concluded in time 
to celebrate our triumph on the Fourth 
of July next? Who is to be the gainer 
of such an arrangement? Certainly 
not America. Mr. Joseph Chamber-

dom from his standpoint, but from 
ours it is sheer nonsense- unmitigated 
bosh. After thrashing Spain we have 
no enemies to fight, but England has 
a superabundance of them. Like the 
poor, they are always with her, be- 
cause John Bull's longing eyes are 
always fixed on sombody else's pos- 

"An alliance with England! Have 
gentlemen considered what a partner- 
ship with that quarrelsome nation 
means? It means that our armies 
would soon be fighting against the 
French in Africa, against the Rus- 
sians in Afghanistan, against the Ger- 
mans in China, against the Japanese 
in Korea, au'ainst the Italians in the 
Mediterranean, against the Austrians 
in the Danube, and the Turks in the 
Golden Horn. The best blood of 
America would enrich foreign soil 
from the Punjab to St. Petersburg and 
from the Cape of Good Hope to the 
Land of the Midnight Sun. That is 
jingoism run mad. Is not that a rav- 

fathers are willing to so sacrifice their 
sons? Who is going to pay the piper 
for such a wild dance?. How can we 
be made happier, more prosperous or 
more pulaaant by such an amazing 
performance? Time and time again 
we have expressed our sympathy with 
down-trodden Ireland by speeches, by 
resolutions, by public meetings, by 
large contributions of cash, by every 
other method known among men 
short of sending an army for her lib- 
eration. In fact, the armed enemies 
of Great Britain have found a great 
deal of substantial aid in this country. 
Now as a part and parcel of this fan- 
tastic, };rf)tes'|tic and suicidal jingo 
scheme, we are to join hands with the 
merciless oppressors of the Irish race. 
Cod forbid that we should be such 
howling idiots." 

The Hibernian Rifles and the Iris h 
American Volunteers, of St. Paul 
Minn., were united, and the com- 
pany will be known as the Irish- 
American Military Company. M. J. 
Costello presided. The Hibernian 
Rifles have been in existence sixteen 
years. The membership of the or- 
ganisation as it now stands is about 
150. The organisation is ready to 


President McKinley has combined 
several good strokes by the action, 
recently taken, in behalf of "young 
Phil" Sheridan, to whom he has 
given an appointment to West Point; 
he has- honored the memory of the 
nation's cavalry hero, gratified the 
desire of that hero's widow, pro- 
moted the ambition of the boy him- 
self and probably secured to the 
military service of the country a 
youth whose inheritance, both of 
temperament and tradition, marks 
him out as one of our future great 
military men. For Young Phil 
is said to be "a veritable chip of the 
old block;" short and stout in build; 
generous and quick-tempered in char- 
acter, studious and inclined to scien- 
tific pursuits, he will probably grow 
even more like his father with in- 
creasing years. It had long been 
Mrs. Sheridan's desire that young 
Phi) might enter West Point Academy 
on the fiftieth aiuiversary of his 

ttther's entrance, which occurred 

July I, 1848; but all previous efforts 
^ that line had failed and she had 
almost given up when President 
McKinley heard of her wish, and it 
is owing to his good office^ that the 
coming July I will see the entrance 
of Phil Sheridan's son and namesake. 
Hitherto he has been carefully 
trained under his mother's watchful 
eye, and his friends predict for him a 
brUliant military career. 

Iridh News Notes. 

The ruins of the Abbey and Castle 
at Donegal, of great historical and an- 
tiquarian interest, having been hand- 
ed over to the Board of Works by 
Lord Arran, that body is expending 
600 pounds renovating the walls. It 
is proposed to reb\iil(l the archway of 
the old Abbey, which fell in some 
time ago. It is to be hoped an im- 
provement committee, with the assist- 
ance of a patriotic public, will do 
something to alter the conditions of 
the tombs and graves which have fall- 
en into disordef and decay, and to 
clear away the rank weeds and net- 
tles which abound all over. 

The members of the Limerick Cor- 
poration have commenced a good 
work — the renaming of their streets 
after patriotic Irishmen. This is a 
grand example for the towns and cities 
of Ireland. In nearly all the princi- 
pal streets are named after English 
Kings and Queens, and after some 
local land magnates, the pillars of the 
British power in Ireland. It is time 
to change these, and Limerick has 
commenced the good business in an 
opportune time. It is hoped a clear 
sweep will be made of those remind- 
ers of British power and cruelty, and 
also of Irish degradation. 
, The Casher98 Club achieved a 
great success in their celebrating the 
memory of the heroes of '98 by a 
torchlight procession and illumination. 
An iiiimense gathering assembled on 
the grounds of the Christian Brothers' 
schools, and formed into processional 
or(^MM^ld by the club flag, on 
wl^^^^Vollowing legend appeared: 
'fs to Speak of '98? Cashel 


Btghteenth and Chestnut, 


Centenary Memorial Club." Then 
followed the Caahet brfeas band, with 

members of the '98 club, wearing 
badges. Next came the Doheny Fife 
and Drum Band, in regalia, attended 
by torch -bearers, and followed by tiic 
'9g Club and the general public. The 
route of the procession was through 
the principal streets to the residence 
of Very Rev. Dean Kinand, where a 
stirring and patriotic speech was de- 
livered by him. The sight was one 
seldom, if ever, exceeded in this old 
"City of the Kings." 


Capt R. T. Jacob's company of 
Home Guards have been 'mustered 

out of the service by order of Gov- 
ernor Bradley. There was no excuse 
for mustering in the company in the 
first place. Capt. Jacol) himself is 1 
soldier, but he surrounded himself 
with a set of men that did not know 
the barrel of a gun from a piece of 
cheese, and the only countersign they 
recognized was "Warm Lunch." 

When Gov. Bradley called for a 
detachment of twenty men from this 
company to go to Manchester, Clay 
county, only eight men could be 
found. These eight went to Pewee 
Valley, where Assistant Adjutant 
Genml Forrester saw their ineffici- 
ency, and promptly rejected them. 

The members of this company will 
not soon make another attempt to 
join the Home Guards or any 
other guarda. The trip to Pewee 
Valley settled them for aU time. 


Mr. T. J. Tierney, for many years 
connected with the Mammoth Gro- 
cery Company, has decided to embark 
in business for himself. Tbunday 
last he opened a handsome* storri on 
Market street, between Second and 
Third, where he will be glad to wel- 
come his old friends and patrons. 
Nothing but flrst-plaas foodstuflb will 
be bandied. - 


Mr. Jame? Cassin, formerly chief 
9f the registry department at the Post-

ibility to make his mark in any field

Mr. William Lynch, at the head of 
the dry goods store bearing his name, 
is probably one of the beat known 
men in the business. Sinoe hk re- 
turn to this city he baa opened the 
large store at Brook and Market 
streets, which is stocked with a fine 
selection of goods. Judging from the 
number of people to be seen in the 
store at all hours, the hot weather 
and hard times have no effect on his 
great trade. This may in a measure 
be accounted foi by the fact that all 
goods advertised by the new company 
are always found to be as represented. 
We call the attention of our readers 
to hia advertisement in this issue.

of a good education, Mr. Dugan pro-

The national convention of the 

Retail Salesmen's Protective Associa- 
tion to be held in this city next week 
promises to be the most important and 
largely attended in its history. The 
sessions will be held at the New Lie- 
derkrans Hall. The local association 
deserves credit for bringing this meet- 
ing to Louisville, and our citizens 
should assist its members in properly 
entertaining the visitors.

Death came in awftal form to Bi^ 

neer Lee Martin in a wreck on thi 
Illinois Central road at Vine Grove, 
l^y., thirty-seven miles fhmi here 
Tuesday afternoon. Martin was 
crushed beneath his engine and was 
killed insUntly. Fireman Vincent De- 
coursey was badly hurt. 

The train was going at 
five miles an hour, and th 
as Vine Grow Wf» 
cidcnt. Suddenly the huge mogul 
engine gave a leap and the next in- 
stant had left die rails and waa tear- 
ing and bumping over the crosstics. 
Deconisey moved from his seat and 
started toward the cab door. Intend* 
ing to leap and save his life. Martin, 
the engineer, remained in bis seat. 
He had thrown die brake fcrward and 
closed the throttie. For nearly a hun- 
dred feet the engine bumped over the 
tires and then careened and turned 
completely over on its side and re- 
versed. Fireman Decoursey was 
thrown twenty feet into the air and 
landed heavfly on a pile of debris 
some yards from the track. It all 
occnrred so quickly that Engineer 
Martin, after throwing the brake, had 
no time to get out of the way, and 
he was crushed beneath the mass of 
sted and iron. Twelve coal cars fol- 
lowed the engine and the track was 
strewn with coal and tbe wreckage of 
a doaen cars for nearly a half of a 
mile. The engine tender, torn from 
the tracks, bad been hurled over forty 
feet beyond the engine. Thoee of 
the crew who escaped injury hurried 
to the assistance of their less fortunate 
companiona. Deeooisey was picked 
up and carried to a neighboring farm- 
house. His body was covered with 
bruisea and two of his ribs were 
cmdMdin. At first it was thought 
his injuries would prove fatal, but his 
physicians now report him as out of 
immediate danger, and entertain 
hopes of his recovery. 

Mr. Decoursey is the son of Steph- 
en Decooaey, living at Sbcdi and 
Kentucky streeta, and is widely known 
in railroad cirdea. • 

Martin wu found terribly cmahed, 
but in his seat. He was covered with 
debris, ;vhile escaping steam and 
water had literally cooked die body. 
His death must have been instantane- 
oiu. He lived in this city, on Fif- 
teenth street, neaa Broadway. Hei 
had been in the employ of die road 
for a nufpber of years. '
