Their first Annual Banquet Held l.aat
Night An Intereatinp; Occasion Toasts
The Friendly Sons of St. Patrick held
their first annual banquet last night, opening
at nine o'clock, at Barkentin's parlors. A
splendid menu was served, doing honor to
the high reputation of the house. Mr. Ed"
ward MoCarthy was toastmaster, officiating
very happily in discharging the duties of the
position. Before the feast had been discussed
the president, Dr. Cremin, made the address
of welcome as follows :
Gentlemen and Brothers We assemble
here this evening as you all know in an infor"
mal manner to honor the memory of Ireland's
great apostle St. Patrick, and to promote
good disposition and friendly feeling with
each other, and while enjoying ourselves in
social intercourse to give full expression of
our feeling in respect to Erin's hopes and
aspirations for liberty. Banded together
under the title of the "Friendly Sons of St.
Patrick," in which honorable name we have
cause to rejoice, I think it may not be
inappropriate for me, your president, (for
which honor unmerited and unexpected
I am deeply grateful) to recall to
your memory some facts relative
to the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick. In the
history of that society there is much to
cause a thrill of pride and exultation in the
heart of every lover of liberty, particularly
if he be an Irishman or an American. In the
revolutionary Btruggle of tbe colonies, over
one hundred years ago, we read that twenty
irisn-A.merioan mercnanis 01 .rnuadelpnia,
most of them members of the society of the
Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, subscribed the
large sum of $450,000 to feed the hungry
and poorly olad American army who were
almost on the point of mutiny, and that out
of gratitude and in admiration of their
generosity the immortal Washington became
a member of the society. Te be
sure there were some among the Tories
at that time who called those noble and dis
interested patriots seoeders and rebels, and
we know that in our time "history often re
peats itself," but were it not for the timely
and effioient aid then rendered to Washing
ton in his great hour of trial and peril, would
the beacon of liberty Bhine as resplendent
over this our country? Is it not probable
that we should be still dependent on Great
Britain? And that we would not enior to
the same extent that we do now the blessings
of civil and religious liberty.of local self-eov-
ernment and of no taxation without repre
sentation. It is for these princi
ples and ideas that poor Ireland,
the land of our aires,is to-day manfully strog
gling. And therefore, gentlemen, assembling
here this evening as we do under the emblem
of the harp and shamrock and the motto of
isnn uq UragQ, " witn friendship for all and
malioe toward none, I bid you ail welcome to
the bounteous banquet before us and the
rich intellectual treat that awaits us.
After the excellent menu had been dis
posed of and the beautiful .flower adorned
tables had been despoiled of much of their
plumage tbe toastmaster, Mr. Edward Mo
Carthy, made brief remarks and introduced
Mr. Daniel Lawler, who responded to the
toast, "The day we celebrate." He said
In every quarter of the globe the children of
Erin do honor to her patron saint. The sons
and daughters of old Erin, wherever they
are scattered, an over tne world. Hasten to

invests Ireland witn a bright glory.
A -snousana years before tne disoov
ery of America Ireland was the abode
of religion and science. In this land at pres
ent the people have not been led away from
tbe doctrines of Christianity. Mr. Lawler
eulogized Daniel O'Connell and Charles
Stewart Parnell. He spoke highly of agita
tion for land reform whioh has been carried
onduring the past five years. Mr. Lawler's
speech was very eloquent and was freoraentlv

.Lawyer T. J. Fox responded to the toast:
"The State of Connecticut, though small she

Banquet at City Hotel Addresses by

The Knights of St. Patrick held their ban
quet at the City Hotel and were most sumptu
ously provided for by Harry Flynn, the
genial head of the "City." At the end of
the dining room where the president was
seated was placed the banner of the society
with the portrait of St. Patriok in the center,
American flags being draped on either side
of the same. At the lower end of the room
was the green flag of Erin. Small flags dec
orated the walls of the dining hall, tha whole
presenting a very fine appearance.
A piano kindly loaned by Mr. Steinert was
placed in the dining room, and while the
bacquet was in progress Mr. Eager presided
at the instrument and entertained the com
pany with some choice selections from his
repertoire, the selections principally being
the tunes that so much delight the Irish
heart the world over.
Among those seated around the festal board
were the following: Senator Joseph D. Plun

On the conclusion of the banquet Pres
ident Michael Fahy delivered the address of
welcome. He congratulated the brother
Knights on their gathering and referred to
Ireland 8 patron saint St. Patrick In a
pleasant manner. He referred to the high
position that' Irishmen had attained which,
he said was all through this liberty loving
government which he hoped God would
protect forever. He referred freelingly to
the death of Colonel Sweeny, a once valued
member of the Knights. In closing Mr.
Fahy recited a verse of poetry which was
received with applause.
'The Day We Celebrate' senator
Plonsett responded in a very elegant ad
dress. He referred to the thousands and
tens of thousands of the followers of
St. Patrick scattered all over the
wide world and said that to-day they remem
bered Old Ireland, still bound hand a"ad foot
in the chains of slavery. But to this land
where so many of Ireland's sons dwell the
lineal descendants of St. Patrick united in
songs of praise. To celebrate this day is not
only the privilege of the Sons of Erin, but
is a day on wbich all patriots may unite in
praise of him who came to Ireland with his
feet olad with the preparation of the gospel
of peace. We celebrate as descendants of
the Emerald Isle, and why ? We hope by
so doing that public opinions may rise and
we shall see the green flag of Erin waving
over Ireland, and like this our adopted ooun
try become a free, hapDy and united people.
On the conclusion of nis speech Senator
Plunkett sang very effectively "The Harp on
America Michael Dillon was oalled upon
to respond, which he did in an eloquent man
ner and was repeatedly greeted with applause
while speaking. When Mr. Dillon concluded
the Knights sang "Bed, White and Blue.
Patrick Doyle responded to tne sentiment.
The City of Elms." In his opening re
marks Mr. Doyle referred to the early settlers
of New Haven and to what had been accom
plished in the two and a half oenturies that
had elapsed since that time. The work
whioh the fathers began in such patient toil
and bumble faith, he said, was an enduring
monument to their praise.
William M. Geary, in response to the
toast "Poets and Poetry of Ireland," spoke
in eubstance as follows:
From the days of the Celtio kings, when
the bards and minstrels sang tbe songs of
ber warriors bold, until the present day, Ire
land nas been famed as the land of song.
Tbe bards and minstrels sang when Ireland
was nntramelied by a foreign yoke, e'er the
iron heel of tbe invader and oppressor had
Deen set upon tne virgin sou of our mother
land. The "harp, the emblem of a race of
freemen, then snapped its cords asunder and
those chords have never since vibrated with
tbe anthems of a free and happy people, as
Moore nas so eloquently written :
' "My songs were made for the brave and free,
They ahail never ajnnd in alavery."
During the prevalence of the penal code the
music of Ireland was made to share in the
fate of its people. Both were alike shut out
from the pale of civilized life, and seldom
anywhere but in the cabins of the proscribed
raoe could the sweet voice of tbe songs of
other days be heard. Even of that class, the
itinerant harpers, among whetn for a long
period our ancient music bad been kept alive.
there remained but a few to continue the
precious tradition. Though the deadly
pressure of the penal laws had nearly, at the
oiose of the eignteentn century, acoompusnea
the utter extinction of Ireland's minstrelsy
and the destruction of this grace and orna
ment left to ber out of the wreck of her
liberties and hopes, still the love and devo
tion of Erin's minstrels sacredly preserved
her musical treasures containing incontesta
ble evidences of Ireland's early civilization.
Ireland's poetry is Ireland's history. In
words of tenderness and pathos, in language
of defianoe and scorn, in words of love and
hope, are recorded the history of
her glories and sorrows. her suf
ferings from centuries of oppression.
Her integrity, her glory, her endurance and
misery, unequalled in duration and intensity
by any nation on earth, have been sung
through every generation of her children by
exalted spirits, who have made known and
will make known her deeds, her virtues and
sufferings throughout the world. . Well
has Moore said of her:
"The stranger shall hear thy lament on his plains; ,
The slsh of thy harp ahall be sent o'er tbe deep;
Till thy masters themselves, as they rivet thy chains.
Shall aause at the song of their captive and weep."
All this and much more has been realized
of Erin by the poetry of her immortal bards.
Ireland's history is replete with themes for
the genius of poetry, and bright is the array
of her sons and danchters who have wor.
sniped at ter shrine. There is hardly a
passion of the human heart that
does not find expression in some " un
equalled passage of Erin's poets.
What gifts the genius of poetry has given to
her sons! -Their name is legion that have
won their way to immortality and fame. " In
leaving the contemplation of Ireland's
beautiful poetry, we find in her poets an
inexhaustible theme, and sot to extend my
remarks to tod great a length, I will allude
to but a few that we are familiar with. Who
does not admire Tom Moore? He wrote
when it was literally "treason te love and
death to defend bis country." Davis, the
most patriotic of Erin's poets, imbued in ber
people the soul of patriotism. It was Im
possible for him to write without a patriotio
sentiment pervading every line. Drennan
wrote the immortal patronymic in which Ire
land ' was oalled for tbe first
time the "Emerald Isle." O'Neil, the
blind bard, was unrivalled upon the
harp; but for his retentive memory and pu e
taste many of Ireland's national airs would
have been lost td us. It is fitting that amidst
the bright array of Erin's early pdets should
appear the name "Parnell." Thomas Par
nell was a poet of the seventeenth century, of
whom Dr. Johnson says: "lie always oengnts,
though he never ravishes." Oppression of
our raoe has been the source of inspiration
that has fired tbe hearts of Erin's latter day
poets with sentiments that will live for ages to
come. Though a despotic government would
make us a nation of slaves, though oppres
sion has consigned to untimely graves
or exiled from their native land the
fairest of Erin's sons, it can never qnench
the fire of patriotism wi.lch Kindled tbe
hearts of her sons and daughters. Will hot
then ber sorrowful songs of the past be
changed to joy andhappiness? Yes, the genius
ef poetry will yet sing, will yet strike the
chords of the national anthem of a free and

performed the duties in a manner that wai

northern barbarians which overturned the
Roman emtrif e, they found a safe asylum on
her shores. Through the gloom Of the dark
ages Ireland was the home of learning, tbe
nursery wnere teachers and mis
sionaries were trained for the work
of harmonising and civilizing and
Christianizing the rude conquerors of Borne.
and they went forth like heroes and martyrs
and spent their lives in the glorious work. It
is safe to say that Europe owes the renewal
of learning and civilization to the work of
Irish scholars and saints, and it is a record
of which all Irishmen may feel proud. And
during the dark night of the middle ages also,
when the hideous feudal system overspread
Europe and reduced the masses of the peo
ple to a condition or slavery, every irisnman
remained a free man with a voice in the elec
tion of his ruler and bending his knee to no
man calling himself bi-i master. Our tribal
system had its own defects, but it left every
individual a free man, and the community
whioh existed in Ireland in those days was
in every sense of the word a democracy.
Feudalism and landlordism were in
troduced from England; and as Ire
land has always protested against
them and is to-day vigorously demanding
tneir aDoiition, we can take credit to our
selves of never having consented or condoned
a social or political wrong or favored an in
stitution that curtailed the rights of man.
Ireland has been conquered by superior
lorce and Iran a, out during tne seven centu
ries of unparalleled misery and persecutions
tnat sne nas suffered since the English inva
sion, she' has never submitted tamely to
tyranny or ceased to protest against tbe de
privation of her liberty. She has passed
through the ordeal of the penal laws and
refused to accept a religion of whioh her
conscience did not approve, and yet without
for one moment being tempted to intoler
ance or to resent persecution by refusing
freedom of religious belief to all men who
Settled on her shores. In the time
of Queen Mary Protestants flee
ing from persecution in England
sought refuge in Ireland and to-day Irish
Cathoho constituencies elect Protestant Na
tionalists to represent them. Ireland's his
tory is therefore one to be proud of. Not
withstanding its tears and its shadows its
example has been well worthy of imitation
by the rest of mankind and therefore it must
have a brilliant future before it. Let us who
own her as our motherland bonor ber for
her services 10 learning and religion, for her
fortitude under persecution, for her un
quenchable resolution never to relinquish her

Trie Play at Peck's Brand Opera.
A Hlgbljr Successfal Kffort
Joseph's Y. M. T. A. L. Society.
Every seat was cccupied in Peck's Grand
Opera House last evening when Bartley
Campbell's beautiful play "Little Sunshine"
was presented by St.- Joseph's Y. M. T. A. L.
society. Much interest had been awakened
in the dramatio efforts of the society, much
of wbich centered ia the work of Miss Emily
M. Ellrod, who came on from Boston where
she is taking a course of dramatio instruction
for the purpose of assuming the leading role.
Daring her residence in this city she had
already appeared Jta several occasions in
amateur theatricals, and always acquitted
herself with marked credit. Hence much
was expected of her last evening, and right
well did she realize the hopes of ber friends.
Before the curtain went up for the first act
in "Litue Hunsmne - tne at. Josepn uiee
slab, under the direction of Mr. John P.
Landre, rendered several selections in ex
cellent time and harmony, showing that their
instruction and drilling has been thorough
and intelligent, uiss may Agnes ward ac
companied the Glee club, as well as Mr.
Landre in his selection r'Golden Love,"
which was very finely rendered.
The audience greeted the rising of the
curtain with much enthusiasm, as they were
impatient to see how the ambitious young
thespians would succeed in their efforts. Of
coarse the appearance 01 miss lutlrod was
eagerly watched for, and when she came upon
the stage she was greeted with storms of ap
plause. - The--audience, at first disposed to
be critical in judging of her work, was soon
won by the intelligence and spirit of her
acting, and when she "spoke her
mind" in the first ' act the true
dramatio - instinct that ran through
all" her rendering - was . revealed and
from that to the end of the play they were
in entire sympathy with her. Miss Ellrod is
rich in nature's gifts, and to these she adds
much that has been acquired by olose and in
telligent study. She has an attractive and
graceful stage presence, a clear, musical and
flexible voice, a distinct and penetrating
enunciation, and considerable degree of
elocutionary skill. Added to this was an ex
cellent conception of the spirit of the play
which- she showed in all her linea and
graceful dramatic execution, . which
gave to her interpretation of "ijittle Sun
shine' a success that might be envied by one
who bad enjoyed greater advantages of
study than have yet been hers. Several
beautiful floral tributes were presented to
her during the play as a tribute to her fine
aetintr: Thouch the others in the cast call
for- less extended notice, - they - nevertheless
one and all acquitted themselves well in their
respective parts. Miss Mary MoDonongh as
"'Jennie Brown" was especially pleasing, and
the vivacity and sprighUiness of her render
ing won her muoh favor from the audience.
In the gobble duet from "The Mascotte,"
which she rendered with Mr. - John
F. Keegan, "Tonf Tucker." she showed a
melodious soprano voice of rich quality and
excellent cultivation. She received two fine
baskets of flowers. John F. O'Brien, as
"Earnest Hartley." cave Miss Ellrod excel
lent support, and in all his efforts was intelli
gent and spirited. William McGarry was
very good as "Count Garowskie, ' and re
ceived a basket of flowers. The entire cast
of characters were well sustained by the
various participants, and although they did
not entirely succeed in removing the crudities
and imperfections that almost invariably at
tend the efforts of amateurs, they did attain.
a large measure of success and afforded moon
real entertainment to ths large audienoe in
attendance. The cast was as follows:

repaired to the rooms of the society in
Wood's building on Church street where an
eleeant banquet was provided bv DeibeL A
number of toasts were responded to and
vocal and instrumental selections sandwiched
in, after which dancing was indulged in until
a late hour. The St. Joseph's celebration of
St. Patrick's day was an eminently successful
one, and the members are deserving of fnuoh
credit for their efforts.

the management of Eugene Tompkins, of the
Boston Theater, will prove a strong attrac
tion at the New Haven Opera House next

in the company.

operas of the modern French school, and one
that has never been produced in English in
this city, will be sung at Feck's Grand Opera
House by the Boston Ideal company tbis

edy, "Bijou."' The wonderful little star
never fails to win the close attention and ad
miration of the audience. Miss Jennie Kim
ball and the other members of the company
are wen named "merry makers. The mat
inee was well attended.
Not the least pleasant of the many enter
tainments provided for St. Patrick's day was
the performance given at the American The
ater by Harry O. Richmond and his troupe
of specialty artists, and large audiences were
present both afternoon and eveniBg. Tb
comedy success "Up to the Times" Bhows a
group of snowbound travelers in a roadside
inn, among whom is an actor, and through
his influence the entire body become
stage-struck and essay various feats
of acting, which gives the performers
an opportunity to display their specialties.

every seat in the parquette and parquette
circle was taken and all the best seats in the
dress circle were occupied. Modjeska in
"As Yon' Like It" makes an admirable Rosa
lind. That she is "intuitively an artist is
amply evident in her rendering of the charac

exquisite portrayal of the finer shades of
emotion characterized her acting and won
the admiration of the most critioal. Where
