IRELAND '$$SONS DO HQNOR TO PATRON INT "Ohb Paddy &ear, and did you hear T10 news that's going 'round? The Shamrock is forbid by law T% .Irow on Irish ground. St. Patrick's Day no more to keep, HIis 'color can't be seen, Ar there's.a bloody law again Tae wearin' of the green." With blare of instruments, with* the ponip and splendor of a semi-military pa4de, with the eloquence and fervil oratory of the patriots came forth the Milesia. descendants today to do honor to their national patron saint-he of the ophldlan warfare and the emerald hue. St. Patrick's Own Day. It was St. Patrick's Day this morning and the bragh gossoons and pretty col leens were out to sing the hymn that stirs every Irish heart and to participate in the ceremonies incidental to the great Celtic holiday. Everywhere the shamrock and the green bands of the patriotic sons trans formed the dusty streets into masses of artistic coloring. with backgrounds of gally dressed maids to applaud te bravely arrayed members of the'Kce - Order of Hibernians and the society. p ,"n. The parade was the prlnlT '.." event and drew the crowds to the strs to join in the brassy strains of "The Wearing of the Green." Six hundred Hibernians and members of the Robert Emmet Literary society marched in three divisions through the principal thoroughfares and were cheered by several thousands from the sidewalks and buildings. Made Punctual Start. It was a parade unique in one thing. Jt was actually started on time and Grand Marshal Con Meaglier was the reclpient of many compliments, pos slbly unheard, from the waiting throngs that lined the curbs. The line of march began in Center ville and marched to the Lexington mine and countermarched to the St. Lawrence church and school and thence down M.ain street to Broadway. At Broadway the column turned east to Atlantic, to Park and to the Sacred Heart church. From the church the procession moved west on Park street tQ Washington and Park streets, where a halt was made for the exercises at St. Patrick's Parochial school. At St. Patrick's Church. At the conclusion of the pretty cere monies of the children the societies marched to St. Patrick's church, where high mass was sung and a sermon de livered by Father O'Laverty, following which the line of march was again taken up to the St. James hospital, thence to Montana, north to Broadway and on Main to Miners' Union hall, where the order to disband was given. The procession was led by Grand MArshal Con Meagher and Alderman Larry Dugan as aide. The Montana State band headed the Centerville Hi bernians in the post of honor, and fol lowing the uniformed order came the carriages with Fathers Smith of Iowa, p'Laveiry of Ireland, Ryan and Ratten, together with James Meagher and others as escorts. The first division was commanded by John Coakley, the second by David Henley and the third by John Molloy, as marshals. Though started at 10 o'clock promptly it was after 1 o'clock before the march ers ended their parade and prepared for the afternoon entertainments and the balls for tonight. At the School. As the throngs from the proces'lon and the thousands who had followed it reathed the school, a cheer went up at the sight of the children congregated on the steps and around the front of the building which was decorated in an ap propriate manner. From the roof to the ground the school was draped with the national colors, interspersed lavishly with the green. Two girls were standing one at each side of the entrance at the top of the s:eps. One at the left representing the Goddess of Liberty, carried an American TILE UiAT.T AT T1IT PAILiCnHIAL BG~HA0O ·I~I YV ' ' . J.1 x 4 1 ý \3 A-O 7 O LGI N wAD A N T 4~)r flag. On the other side was Erin, a win some lass, attired in becoming green. One hand rested on a broken green column, around which was twined an abundance of 'lvy, and the other held an Irish harp prettily wreathed with trail ing green. Around stood the schobl orchestra of 37 pieces, and as the last of the procee saon drew up in front of the building the band struck up "St. Patrick's Day." A Pleasang 'icture. The sight was an Inspiring one. The great crowd seemed to move and swing in rhythmic measure to the strains of the music; the glitter of green In the sunlight; the happy faces of the children as they looked out upon the vast throng and seemed to glow with the spirit of the occasion. Above, the windows, with their wealth of green and gold ands the long dralpings of red, white and blue were packed with faces, and the gay colors made a pleasing contravt with the dark habits of the s:Pters, in whose sweet faces shone the light of a holiday. To many of them the Iriih airs brought a flood of memories, and they seei.ed to catch the spi:lt of the crowd as their ears 'aught the strains of "St. Ptat lk's Day," and their faces glowed ,bneath their snow-white hoods. As the last strains of the inspliring tune died out a young fellow not more than 17 years of age came forward to the edge of the steps, and without the slightest appearance of diffidence began to speak. It was Edward O'Flynn, one of the echcolboys, who had been chosen to ad dress the crowd. A Youthful Orator. Beginning slowly and deliberately and wit:hout any apparent effort, the boy soon caught the attention of his audi ence, and as he warmed with the fire of his subject he threw the whole force of his spirit into an earnest and impas stoned speech which was easily heard all and Washington was already born and Ireland alone bowed not to victorious Caesar. "This day we hold sacred to one, who at that time did more for the nation than centuries of warriors and statesmen have been able to accomplish ever since; to one whose name and fame are world wide, to whom men of every nation, of every creed, and every color, are glad to offer the tribute that goes out to the herald of Christianity, the great and good St. Patrick. The Day of Eoma..e. "Today, from Maine to California, from the frozen plains of the Arctic to where the Southern Cross rides high, the exiles of Erin turn their hearts to the gem of the Western world to do homage to the memory of their leader, their god given light in the hour of their darkness, to render him the homage of undying love and true Irish loyalty. "Search the annals of history," said he, "and you will find no story so beau tiful as the story of the advent of Chiristianity to Ireland when she passed from paganism to the worship of the Living God." ov, r the vast throng that stretched from Park street to Galena. When he referred to the wrongs of Ire land there was a perce,.,ptible expression 'of sympathy in the audience and soon he had the crowd with him, until every. man, woman and child in the vast ai semblage was up on his to?8, hanging' on the words of the boy. At periods the audience burst into ap plause, and when, 'in his reference to op. press!on, he reflerred to the vaunted love of England, and shouted: "If to love is to kill, England loves Ireland well. If to love is to hate, England could not love ireland better!" the crowd thundered i's applause. Portraying with wonderful skill the early -history of the race the young ora tor touched on the marvellous growth of twle Irish nation and the influence that the patron saint had that brought it. "At a time," said he, "when the na tions were steeped in ignorance and su erstition' Ireland alone stood for the light of Christianity. The peminary of Europe. 'While Greece and Rome were yet un born, the scholars of Europe flocked to the Emerald isle to sit at the feet of the greatest teaobhers in the known world and drlk tin the. education and religion . the ages. Then Ireland was the sent e.ary of Europe. "When Rome set forth her conquering egilons and subdued the world, the spirit which imbued the hearts of O'Connell lie evidently struck a responsive chord in the hearts of his hearers when in con elusion he voiced the hope of so many of lis countrymen that " the dawn would coane to the fettered isle." Conicluding, the -boy said: "As the good saint shook off the cha;na of ignorance and superstition, another delliverer will come who will tear off the shacakles of English tyranny and give to Ircland-to Chrlstian Ireland-tihe lib erty she loves so well." At the conclusion of the young man's *ffort, the children sang a patriotic A4 ericnasong, and then came the pretty emo any of crowning the banners. t the martial note of a bugle a little rame forward with a number of gar eds of lilies of the valley, and as the bearers who advanced lowered their s, she placed a wreath on the top fl' tie staff.
