The death of Mr. Herbert Webb Gil
man, J. P., Clonteadmore, Coachford,
County Cork, is announced, and will be
learned with much regret in archaclogical
circles in this country. Deceased, who
was a member of a very old and well
known Cork family, was a distinguished
scholar and served for many years as a
Judge in India, where he devoted much
attention to the question of currency.
On retiring from the bench he returned
to his Irish home, and since lived an
active, useful life as a country gentle
man. On Monday the remains of the late
Mr. F. O. Rutledgc, whose sad and un
expected death occurred in London on
the 20th ult., were removed from the
Hollymount railway station for interment

The remains were met at the station by

ous wreaths bearing expressions of sym
pathy and sorrow, was conveyed on the
shoulders of the tenantry to its last rest

friends waited on Dr. J. J. MacGrath at
his residence, 73 Lower Mount street,
Dublin, for the purpose of making him
a presentation on the occasion of his
marriage. The. presentation consisted
of an illuminated address and a tea and
coffee service of solid silver. The ad
dress referred to the many qualities, pro
fessional and personal, possessed by the
doctor, the esteem in which he is lield,
and the success which has attended his
career, a success which was crowned and
would be shared by his amiable wife.
Nominations were made with the Cork
Town Clerk, Mr. A. McCarthy, last week
for the vacancy in the aldermanship of
the Northwest ward caused by the resig
nation of Alderman M. Flavin. Only
one candidate was nominated, Mr. John
Slattery. Two papers were handed in
on Mr. Slattery's behalf. In the first he
was proposed by Alderman P. J. Madden
and seconded by Mr. E. Twomey, and
in the second he was proposed by Alder-
an E. Walsh and seconded by Mr. J.

who fought and died in '08, they honored
and revered in a special manner the men
who fell in the streets of Carlow.
A very successful demonstration in
honor of the memory of the men of '98
was held on Sunday on the historic
ground known as the Green of St. Mul
Hn's, outside New Ross. The cemetery
adjoining the Green is the last resting
place of many who fought in the Wex
ford and Carlow battlefields in '08. The
concourse of people, comprising about
ten thousand, visited the graves of the
patriots and reverentially joined with
Rev. Father Norris, of St. Mullitt's, in
reciting the "De Profundis" for the re
pose of their souls. The New Ross and
Graig bands played the "Dead March in
Saul," and the scene was intensely im
pressive. At the head of each grave a
pike was planted, surmounted by a shield
bearing the name of the occupant and
the battle in which he fought. The de
votional portion of the proceedings was
followed by a stirring address by Fi'ther
Norris. Mr. Patrick O'Lcary, of Graig,
read an interesting paper dealing princi
pally with the history of St. Mullin and
his contemporary native chieftains.
Large contingents were present from
Graig, New Ross, Borris, Bagnalstown
and other adjoining districts.
Thomas P. Clincs, one of the best
known Irishmen of this city, died at his
home, on East Gray street, last week,
after a brief illness. For the past twenty-four
years he had been an active mem
ber of the Ancient Order of Hibernians,
and was a pioneer in the building up of
that society in this city. He was hold
ing the position of assistant engineer of
the Custom House at the time of his
death. ' Mr. Clines was a very charitable
and unassuming man, whose good deeds
made for him friends without number,
who sincerely mourn his untimely taking
off. His funeral, which took place from
the Cathedral on Sunday afternoon, was
largely attended, Division No. 1, A. O.
II., acting as honorary escort. The fun
eral obsequies were conducted by Rev.
Father Rock, who delivered one of the
most eloquent and touching funeral ora
tions ever heard in the Cathedral. The
remains were consigned to rest in St.
Louis Cemetery. The following gentle
men acted as honorary pall-bearers:
Messrs. Edward Clancy, Thomas Dolan,
John Mulloy, James Spcllman, John J.
Kcane, James Concannon, James Cole
man and Patrick Hardy. The active
pall-bearers were James Rodgers, Matt
O'Doherty, Thos. Morgan, John Davern,
John Hessian, John Hughes and Messrs.
Conniffc and Cohen.
unmistakable a way in Ireland.
Mr. James Dunphy, of Waterford, has
a remarkable souvenir of the fighting
days of '98. It is a short sword of pecu
liar workmanship, used by his grand-
uncle, James Dunphy, who fought as a
volunteer with the Vinegar Hill contin
gent, and who left behind him on that
hard-fought field many a brave man from
the Benvoy district of Waterford, where
his nephew, Mr. Edmond Dunphy, at
present resides. The weapon is similar
to those worn by officers of 82 Volun
teer, has the carved bronze hilt, a brass-
bound scabbard, and is as nicely balanced
and as deadly a weapon as ever a fight
ing man could desire to wield at close
quarters. Mr. Dunphy values greatly
this precious heirloom.
Under the auspices of the United Irish
League, a Nationalist demonstration was
held in Doonbeg lately. Landgrabbers
were unsparingly whipped from a verbal
point of view. Mr. Michael Mescall,
chairman Kilrush Board of Guardians,
presided. Every parish in West Clare
was represented. Some bands were also
present. The chairman called on the
people to stand together as they did in
the days of the Land League, and very
soon landgrabbing would be extermin
ated root and btanch. Mr. Michael J.
Carmody, Kilrush, asked those who at
tended this grand demonstration to stick
together as one man and victory would
crown their, efforts m the case of the
tenant farmers. Mr. Matthew Kelly,
Cree, President of the United Irish
Lengue, and Mr. Antony O'Dwyer also
addressed the meeting. Resolutions con
demning the landgrabbing were passed.
The Nationalists of Carlow Graigue
were early in the field in their prepara!
Hons for '98. Ten years ago a site was
set apart and enclosed for a monument
to the United Irishmen, and on Sunday
last the work.was completed by the un
veiling of a beautiful Celtic cross, de
signed by Mr. W. P. Hade and executed
by Mr. James Walsh, Carlow. It was a
curious coincidence that the neonle on
the occasion when the. area was staked
off were headed by the late Father Daniel
Byrne, to whom the idea occurred to
commemorate the martyrs, while Rev.
George Byrne presided at Sunday's cere
mony. The town was pervaded by a gala
element, and the streets, were radiant
with arches, bunting and evergreen dec
orations. The, St. Patrick 'sJBranch Irish
National Foresters, in their regalia and
accompanied by the band, headed the
procession, next came the leading.Na

came from ..Queen's County. Dublin,

Mr. Henry Cassin, aged seventy-eight
years, and a well-known and highly
respected citizen, was found dead in his
bed early Sunday morning at the family
residence, 2112 Floyd street. He had
appeared in his usual good health and
his death was a surprise to the family.
Death was due to heart failure, superin
duced by old age. The deceased was the
father of Mr. James Cassin, late superin
tendent of the registry division of the
postoffice. He was also the father of
Capt. Michael Cassin, of the No. 9 En
gine Company, and ot Airs. Lawler, ot
this city. He was an uncle of Mr. Henry
F. Cassin, assistant clerk of the United
States District Court. The funeral, which
was largely attended, took place from
the residence at 8:30 o'clock Tuesday
morning and from St. Mary Magdalene's
church at 9 o'clock. The interment was
in St. Louis cemetery.
Patrick Coleman, aged sixty-three
years, uieu bunclay nigut at tue lamny
residence, 2132 Bank street, of general
debility. He was well known in the
western portion of the city and had many
friends. Several grown children survive
him. The funeral took place at 9 o'clock
Wednesday morning from St. Cecelia's
church and the interment was in St.
District Attorney Daniel J. Kenefick,
of Buffalo, said the other day that he be
lieved the proposed Corbett-McCoy fight
was in violation of law, and he meant to
prevent it if possible. The clergymen of
Buffalo issued a call for a meeting Thurs
day afternoon to devise plans to stop the
fight. These two obstacles raised them
selves, and the Hawthorne Club pro
moters have no public answer to make,
except to insist that the contest will be
within the letter of theHorton law, and
that there will be no interference.
The fight between Harry Rodgers and
John Guilbert Monday night wa swon by
the latter on a foul in the fourth round.
Rodgers had all the best of it, however.
He outfought JGuilbert and knocked him
down in the last round, but could not re
strain from taking a punch at him as- he
lay. on the floor, and. thereby lost the
decision. In the preliminary Steve
