Division 6 of Binghamton, N. Y., held
its annual reception in Rand's Hall, and
it was a decided success.
The Ladies' Auxiliary of Columbus, O.,

there was a large attendance.
George Kilcourse, Cosinas Meagher
and several others will shortly be admit

Many members are anxious to hear
from the General Committc relative to
the St. Patrick's day celebration.
The United Irish Societies of Detroit
arc making extensive preparations for
the celebration of St. Patrick's day.
A regular business meeting of Company
A was held last night, when all details
were perfected for taking part in the Le
Division 4 will initiate several candi
dates Wednesday evening. President
Hennessy informs our reporter that the
meeting will be a lively one.
The new piano in Hibernian Hall is a
beeuty and a handsome addition to the
already numerous attrac.tfte fixtures.
Well done, Ladies' Auxiliary.
The Sheridan Guards, connected with
Division 17, of Boston, at their last meet
iug entertained a large number of visitors
with a reception and collation.
The members of Division 4 are always
delighted when they see Con Hallihan
enter the hall. His remarks are bright,
interesting and pleasing to the members.
President John Murpry, of the County
Board, requests the various Division
Presidents to meet him at Dougherty &
Kecnan's Sunday morning at 9:30
The Sheridan Guards have been reor
ganized at Milwaukee by the former
members of Company I, First Wisconsin
Volunteers. Fifty-eight members have
signed the roll.
It is announced that Division 4 will
shortly resume its monthly euchres and
dances. These affairs are always looked
upon with pleasure by the younger mem
bers of this division.
Terence McHugh and Tom Langan are
hippy over the report that the Dominican
church contemplates giving a bazar.
They are anticipating a glorious time for a
number of their friends.
In answer to many correspondents, we
will say that the general election of divi
sion officers for the ensuing year will not
Next Saturday, December 17, a special
meeting of the County Board will be held
at Hibernian Hall. Business of great im
portance will come before the body, and
President Murphy hopes that every mem
ber will be present.
Division 3 had a largely attended meet
ing Wednesday evening. This division
contemplates the formation of a class for
the study of the Irish language, and the
officers are in correspondence with some
of the leading Gaelic professors of the
country relative to the matter.
Popular Jsm Keane, of the Hibernian
Kuights, is soon to try the happy state of
connubial bliss. Whenever Jem appears
in society you can see the fair sex smile,
and many an amorous glace is cast side
lonir at the stalwart Hibernian. His
bachelor friends will sorely miss hiui.
Rumors are afloat to the effect that
popular Arthur Campbell is about to join
the order of Benedicts. He has of late
absented himself from all social af
fairs. His brother Hibernians sorely
miss his ready laugh, his benign counte
nance and spontaneous wit, which made
him such a universal favorite.
There seems to be a run on the bachelors
of the Hibernian Knights. If the Hiber
nians are tired of celibacy, let them join
the knights and their bachelor dreams will
vanish into thin air. There are only a
few left and they are supposed to be im
pregnable arainst all assaults. That is
their boast, but they will meet a Dewey
of the feminine gender some day.
The genial Con Hollihan, of the Hiber
nian Knights, is now upbrading himself
because he did not quit keeping bachelor
hall before his partner done so. No
wonder Con is chagrined. A gentle part
ner to beguile the cold and long evenings
of winter is a pleasant prospect before
one's imagination. In his imagination
only must Con now see those dreams re
alized or break the rules of propriety.
At last the bachelor career of P. M.
Flynn is about to terminate. The beau
teous eyes of a lovely East End belle
have woven an endlesss chain around bis
heart. No wonder he does not enjoy
himself at socials and retires early when
the magnet that attracts him is not there,
The glad notes of the marriage bells will
soon ring out in -an uptown church, the
culmination of a very pretty romance.
Hibernian Hall, in Boston, was filled
to overflowing with members of the
order, who gathered to participate in the
reception to Quartermaster Sergeant M.
E. Bowlan and Private M. J. Glynn, of
Company C, Ninth Massachusetts, two
of the members of Division 41. Cant.
John M. Cotter presided, and each of the
returned soldiers spoke very gratefully
of the kindness of the Massachusetts
Volunteer Aid Association, Dr. Gavin,
the division physician, and Rev. Father
Cummins, the State chaplain.
Division 5, 0 and 18, of San Francisco,
lwe joined forces, and will hereafter be
known as Division 0. Division 5 was
one of the old divisions, going back to
etrly times in 'the history of the order
in tbe district. No. 18 was a new divis
ion; No. 8 wh one of the old guard. In
the reorganization Thorn an Norton, Presi
dent of Division C, was re-elected Presi
dent. Capt. Wrin, whose history is a
history of the order in California, and an
Irishman without a blemish in his life,
was chosen Vice President.
The Ladies' Auxiliary of the A. O. H.
recently tendered a reception to the Mil
ford, Mass., Hibernians who served iu
the late war. State President Edward J.
Slattery made an address complimentary
to the soldiers of the Spanish war, par
ticularly those from Milford. He closed

gavel, which was won by the organiza
tion at the archery shoot in South Fram
inghatu last September, in competition
with the auxiliaries from other places.

Patrick McLaughlin, Ballygorman,
Malin Head, met with a tragic end by
being burned in his own house on Satur
day. It appears that the deceased, who
was almost 80 years of age, resided iu a
