conversant with the theological teachings of but it is quite certain he knows absolutely nothing about the causes of Irish discontent and In a lecture recently deliv ered by the he maintains that the great trouble in Ireland is too many people and too much enlightened men are well aware that there is not a not a of truth in this and that there never for it is not necessary tp aver that the Doctorsassertion is not but is as ancient as is Englands cruel hatred of There are statistics in regard to the consumption of intoxi cating liquors in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and What do these statistics prove They show that the English and Scotch are more ad dicted to the use of inebriating bever ages than the much abused and much slandered to the good Doctors of reason there ought to be greater discon tent and disaffection in England and Scotland than there are in But is this the case Far from The peo ple of England and Scotland are as happy and comfortable as the inhabitants of any country in The cause of the trouble in is not owing to the overindul gence of its people in whisky and the one whu wantonly makes such a state ment grossly libels an oppressed and struggling knows not whereof he and proves himself but little acquainted with the history of Neither is poor Irelands unfortunate condition clue to Ire land is not never has There are countries in Europe that contain more people to the square mile than and yet there is not the misery in them that there is in the Emerald it is claimed by those who have given the matter no in considerable study that Ireland is cap able of supporting comfortably a popu lation of at least fifteen Today the number of her inhabitants is not much more than four and yet Johnson contends that she is over and as a consequence wretched and Non sense rot rubbish But what is the real cause of Irelands woes and wrongs truthful history declares that it is ac inexorable All Ireland is owned by a handful of comparatively The greater part of the owners of the country are j All these landlords care about the Irish is to exact all the money they can from them by way of exorbi tant Libertines and as they generally they need lucre to spend in the brothels and gambling hells of European and hence the reason the Irish are robbed to furnish them with Will the Doctor deny that the Irish landlords are what 1 claim they and oppressors of Gods poor If he denies then must his ignorance be woeful and Thanks to such men as James Redpath and the late David the Irish question is better understood in this country than it ever was and this countrys ver dict is that and it is responsible for Irelands destitution and Landlordism is and has been the curse of and will be the curse of any country which tolerates VVe are a blessed and prosperous peo ple in the United and if there is one thing more than another that has contributed to our prosperity and happi ness it is the fact that we are the owners of the soil that the country is not di vided into small But would we be as contented and welltodo as we are if our rich and resourceful country was the property of a handful of uncon lecherous wretches such as own illfated Ireland If landlordism held sway here as it does in lovely we would not be a whit better off than the Every few years we would be the victims of artificial famine every few years we would behold such appalling and hearlrending scenes as Ireland was constrained to witness in the years of 46 and But this coun try knows well what such as it exists in and that is no danger of it root on om soil no danger of it making our Republic a synonym for starvation and And to what do Sir Wilfred Blunt and the Marquis ot eminent English the discontent which is so rife in Ireland Do they maintain that it has its origin in over population and whisky If I have properly construed their speeches and magazine articles on the they hold that Ireland needs Home Rule in order to prosper that it needs a peasant proprietary to guard it agahst famine and its attending direful It is thus the greatest English statesmen of today and I word on this question as against John knowing as I do thai they are better judges of the matter han in that they have made the Irish question the study of their i In Ohio there is a well kaw Metho dist divine by the name of He was born in Ireland s well at John I has been in Ireland more recently than the Does Pepper think as John son does concerning Irelands trouble The Pepper holds Landlordism ac countable for the wretchedness found in and in all our large itowns and cities has his eloquent voice heard denouncing the scoundrels vjho for cen turies have been oppressing the Irish and forcing them to emigtate from a country their devotion to wfiich is pro But Pepper is a true not an and therefore does he love his tntal too well to villify and misrepres t it there does he desire to see tnat land take her place among the najions of the If Johnson will Uke a friends ad vice he wil forthwith cease preferring false and malicious charges against a people who are the peers of any in the so far as goodness and purity are concerned people who are among our best and most patriotic The day has let me inform the Doctor with all due when mendacity and scurrility could hurt Ireland or her Americans have now probed to the bottom of the Irish and they are not to be deterred from sympa thizing with the Home Rule movement by rascally Orangemen or their Ireland has at last the ear of the and the consequence is that all who prize liberty are praying that God may hasten the day when England will be necessi tated to allow Ireland to legislate for her own and the dawn of this if 1 read the signs is wot far Torryism is on its last soon to be buried out of Glad stone and the Liberal party are coming into power one of these and then a Home Rule measure will be presented to which will be passed by Orangemen and their Tory live they here or may loudly cry out against this measure of justice for long suffering Ireland but come it as sure as God is just and His Provi dence includes the care of human WASHINGTON March Editor Advance Argus The sudden and unexpected death of Chief Justice which occurred on Friday morning has cast a gloom over the National All the de partment buildings are heavily draped in and flags are suspended at half The shock produced by the sad event is and perhaps it is more keenly felt by the members of the House of as the Justice was personally known to nearly all of the old who had either made his acquaintance as

several times around the but no special damage was done aside from the total destruction of the telegraph instruments in that end of the It was reported that a horse attached to a cab at the Senate end of the Capitol had been killed by the but this proved to be but a as the animal was merely knocked but at once recovered and stood awaiting the next order as patiently as though nothing had The statement that it is possible for lightning to kill a Washing ington cabhorse is considered by those familiar with the animal as a gross libel upon the Work upon the new library building is about to

prefer to buy an adul terated article of food because it can be had at a lower price they undoubtedly have the right to do provided the adulteiants are not of a character injur ious to If such articles are not falsely sold as pure and the customer is not deceived as to their real the transaction is not But the great danger in the traffic in adulterated food arises from the decep tion that is practiced by manufacturers usually classing such goods as This is almost invariably done when the adulterant is one that is injurious to For manufacturers of alum and lime baking powders not only
