National President William Mahone
arrived in the city Thursday in the inter
est of the street railway employes and
the threatened strike has for the time i
being been averted I
The reply of the Street Car Company
was presented and while disappointing
and calculated to incense the men to
hasty action they displayed good judg
ment in their consideration of the im
portant questions before them which will
add to the growing sentiment in their
favorPresident
President William Mahone is one of
the ablest labor leaders in the movement
today At Thursday nights meeting he
delivered powerful address to the mem

attempt should be made to procure an
amicable adjustment of the grievances of
the motormen and conductors who want
to do nothing that will inconvenience the
public With this end in view confer
ences are being held between the
officers of the company and the
officers of the union which will be
reported at a meeting to be held Tuesday
night The reply of the company to the
demands presented is censured by all
classes of citizens and should trouble
result the responsibility will rest upon
the heads of the railway magnates
Their refusal to recognize their employes
meets with general condemnation and
no surprise need be felt if they are here
after treated to a dose of their own med
icine in other quarters
The members of the union will act
conservatively throughout the whole
affair and their conduct thus far is com
mendable

ROVING GYPSY
The Celt Sarclflcod for the
Good of the Whole
World
Rev Mr Stopford Brooke the newly
elected President of the Irish literary
Society of London read art eloquent
paper on liThe Celt at an open meeting
of the society recently The Celt was
the rover the gypsy of the world he said
This detachment from home had its great
disadvantages for him and it partly dis
enabled him from becoming a nation
But it had its great advantages for the
world Man was the better of it It
quickened the movement and life of man
kind and thus again the Celt had been
sacrificed for the good of the whole not of
his own will but influenced by a higher
will than his It was true that the Celts
loved their country dearly but their love
was more ideal than actual more a poetic
passion than a prose reality They
cherished it wrote poems on it wept
over the thought of their land but they
did not come back to it often
The advent of Christianity had enor
mously strengthened the Celts love of
home and country and they had also
been immensely developed by the op
pression of England Men loved that
for which they had endured pain and
woes and for which they bad been op
pressed They loved a land which hajt
been persecuted tortured and troddeif
down but which had never been subdued
or lost its courage to live on That men
were forced to live apart from their coun
try inflamed their love and the long
longing of the exiles from Ireland since
St Columbato present daybore wit
ness of its intensity For all that how
ever he doubted if the love of country
was as strong in the Irishman as in the
Englishman It was more poetic more
passionate in expression The English
man returned to his land after long years
but the Irishman and the Highlander
who had enriched themselves whose
money well spent might do so much to
help and develop Ireland or the Western
Isles were conspicuous by their absence
Under every sun in every land and
especially in Englishspeaking lands this
deep ideal passion lived and grew in the
multitudes of the scattered Irish people
Millions whose fathers came out of Ire
land cherished it It was a mighty power
a power which some day would pass
out of the ideal into the real out of pas
sion into act and in time to come of
which they watched the dawning Ireland
would be able under belter laws to de
velop her children This great passion
would have more widereaching effect in
history than we could yet imagine Great
political changes were hidden in it He
saw Ireland when the Celt came home
having learned the lessons of exile a
happy home a united people and a race
that had realized its nationality
However there was another and an in
teresting side to this question ThQ per
son whom the Celt most damaged by his
individuality was himself but he had not
damaged the world or mankind by it It
had been of the greatest use possible to
the progress of the world
