LOUISVILLE, KY., SATURDAY, JULY
The Kentucky Irish American
takes pleasure in announcing to its
many friends and readers that it is
now in possession of its own office,
Hereafter the paper will be issued
from 326 West Green street, be
tween Third and Fourth. No
paper has been started of late years
with such flattering prospects of
success as the Kentucky Trish
American, and the growth of its
circulation has been phenomenal.
Because of disappointment in
procuring our new type and ma
terial there was no issue last week.
Amends will be made for the omis-
however. The editor and
manager has now completed all
necessary arrangements for the
publication of a first-class journal,
and with each issue new features
will be introduced.
Although our subscription list has
been largely augmented with each
issue, notwithstanding the disad
vantages we were under, it is ex
pected there will be a still greater
increase every week hereafter. The
price will remain at only $1 per
year, aud we ask our friends to
send in their names and lists at
once. We want to have 5,000 sub
scribers in this city. Arrangements
are being completed for its intro
duction throughout Kentucky and
the adjoining States, and also for
an excellent news service.
While our advertising patronage
has been very fair, no special effort
and otliers v
have not as yet been called upon,
but henceforth we expect to make
them weekly visits, and can now
assure them an atlinle return for
, any space they may occupy. Thii
paper will prove one of the best ad
t yertising mediums in the city.
We want our young friends to
J get to work for us. We will short

pletion of the peace paper, it was
announced, could not occur until
The President and Secretary Day
at noon yesterday thought there
would be no delay in signing and
executing the proctocol, but had
nothing official to report.

President will at once announce a
termination of hostilities.
