sented. In the solution of the great
public Question of the hour!
Mow is the srra,t struggle between
capital and labor to be finally and
eatiafactorlljr aettled except by ' awak
ening the conscience of tne employer
to the inalienable rights of the work
Ingmen to receive an honest and de-
cent livelihood for himself and his
family, and by arousing the conscience
of the worklngmao to an apprecia
tion of the rights of honest capital
to be protected ?
NV American can share in the bless
ings cwf oar free institutions and have
any doubt concerning the need of eon
fence and religion for the adminis
tration and preservation of our liberties
Mow is the great struggle between
Ireland and English government to be
Anally settled except by arousing the
conscience of the English to the fact
that "Just government depends on the
consent of the governed."
Z have apoken of the gradual dlsap
pearaaee of religious Intolerance. Here
and there it still appears and contin
ues to keep men and women of our
raoa from advancement though emi
nently Qualified and otherwise com
petent. But great and harmful a this big
otry has been to our progress and ad
vancement, to my mind, . the greatest
enemy of our race in .American life
today is the "money power," the so
called " "vested interests."
Indeed. I believe, we often attribute
the religious Intolerance what is real
ly the opposition of these "special in
terests." The bribe taker can be
reached; in time he may be punish
ed; he can at least be, shamed1; but
the method of controlling men's acts
and men's votes, even to the making
of appointments in high responsible
places, by ao-called "respectable Influ
ence. Is so hidden and so difficult to
trace that there seems .to be but?
small means of fighting or contending!
against it. Apparently the whole
private and public life of honest and
respectable men is often dominated
and controlled by it without the con
sciousness of its influence, and the
record of private and public service
ox many from beginning to end, is the
record of some influence behind them
seeking to use the instrumentalities
of government for selfish purposes
and ends.
Not only is our race the sufferer
from its overpowering arrogance, but
every person who la not born to
wealth, or able to command the in
fluence of wealth, finds the doors of
opportunity closed in a thousand ave
nues, especially the positions, places
and departments in industrial . and
political life, the majority of which
these Interests control.
We must fight against this new and
powerful oligarchy which Is stifling
ambition and hindering the demand
of honest merit. It is not a political
nor a. racial question. In this bat
tle we shall have arrayed -with us the
children of all races who have come
here struggling for a place, a fair
field and open opportunity. We shall
find battling with ns also, the chil
dren of the Puritan who have been
pushed aside and denied their just rec
ognition because they did not have at
their command -the influence or asso
dtion of wealth.
We are not enemies of great wealth
honestly acquired; we need and we
pledge our loyalty to men of wealth
who have made their money by un
usual business capacity, yet who have
retained real sympathy for the toil
ers who are- meeting with great ob
stacles trying to build up a home un
der the expensive conditions of mod
ern living;--men of wealth who will
speak less of the law of supply and
demand, which they are ready to ap
ply to the labor' market, but which
they are forever doing their best to
antagonise ' by carefully contrived
combinations when it comes to the
selling market; men of wealth who
shall place manhood above dividends,
who shall seek- some methods of in
tercourse and fellowship which shall
restore, not "destroy, brotherhood.
In these days, when stories In many
cases true, of dishonesty and dishonor
in public, in business and professional
life are rife, it is being borne in on
the people with ever increasing force
that the future life of the nation, its
success or failure, does not depend
on the culture, the brilliancy, the tal
ent, the ability, of its leaders in. leg
islation or business life but on the
restoration, . preservation, and devel
opment of the virtues that made our
ancestors, both. Puritan and Kelt
Ood-tfearlng, honest Christian people.
How shall we fortify ourselves ex
cept by our inherited faith when we
penetrate the atmosphere of doubt
which surrounds ns on all sides? The
people of all the civilized nations of
the world are feeling its touch. In
deed, it is shaking the very founda
tions of human society. Many de
scendants of the Puritan and the Pll
grim, long noted for their intense and
strict religious fervor, today are
doubting all revelations, the Cross,
the Bible, and the Church.
The effect of this spread of'irrelig-
ion has penetrated into the domestic
Hfe of the country to such an extent
that one of the great problems of the
hour Is the solution of the divorce
evil. England told Ireland, years
ago, that the Irish husbands might di
vorce their Irish wives. With amaze
ment and laughter the Irishmen re
ceived the beneficient legislation ' per
mitting a man to separate from his
wife; the true Irishman would as soon
lose his strong right arm as abandon
the wife of his bosom. And if we
are to remain true to our inheritance.
we shall continue to be known as a
race that adheres to the solemnity of
the marriage contract because it Is
the bedrock of protection to the home
and to human society.
An address -upon the subject of our
inheritance on an occasion like this
would he most incomplete without
reference to the contribution which
the women of the Irish race have
made to our inheritance. We are
wont to applaud the courage and the
bravery of Ireland's sons, especially
her soldiers, her statesmen, and her
orators. But to my mind, the quiet.
almost unnoticed yet heroic lives of
the women of the Irish race have too
long failed to receive from us proper
public recognition.

If the men of our race who came
here as emigrants received social os
tracism, no word can describe the
complete isolation forced upon these
women. They shared every hardship,
exile, poverty, ignominy, often even
insult to their honor and virtue. No
labor was too menial for them; no ob
stacle and thousands of our women
made the fight single handed, was
permitted to hinder them in the strug
gle for place and position.
In one generation they broke down
or weakened the barriers of poverty,
environment and social prejudice so
completely that the sons and daugh
ters of these exiles entered upon the
struggle "for power and place and
pelf In American life with little hin
drance compared with what they
met.
What shall I say of the descendants
of these Irish exiles, the daughters
of the present generation? In cul
ture, in refinement, in education, in
ability, to endure the stress and strife
of physcal labor, in purity of life, in
healthy feminity, the Irish American
women have no superiors.
How unselfish, too, has been their
work! Scarcely a. priest or man in
the professional or business walks of
life, of Irish descent can be found
who is not indebted for his position
and place, to the labor and the sac
rifices of the mothers and the daugh
ters of his people. The money that
has made it possible for the men of
our race to receive an education in
the higher institutions of learning, has
come in great measure from the nam
earnings often at the risk of health
and strength of their Irish mothers
and sisters, who forgot the long hours
of labor, the fatigue, the lack of so
cial comforts and opportunities for
social advancement, In the happiness
and comfort that came to them in the
thought that they were giving to
Cod's service and to the great pro
fessions, men of their blood to fit
tingly represent and espouse and
plead for, the spiritual and material
advancement of their race.
Women of the Irish race, your work
is not alone of the past. The respon
si Witty is yours to see to it that you
continue to be known for the faith
that knows no doubting, for the fidel
ity . that knows no failing, for spot-
leasness of life and Integrity of char
acter, for honesty and devotedness as
mother, sister and wife.
These are the memories, these the
rich traditions, this the inspiration
and the lesson that I find in the his
tory of the Irish race. Let us leave
the history, let us come to today; let
me come to the voices of the present.
I would come to you, to you who are
the last survivors of that band of
emigrants who braved the early hatred
and antagonism that from time to
time showed itself as you sought to
rise above the menial walks of life,
How i like were your efforts for fair
recognition and juat consideration to
the efforts of those men of Massachu
setts who followed the flag of the lie
public through the years of the civil
war and brought back the flag all
the more precious because it was torn
with shot and black with' smoke? I
call - to you, brothers and sons of
those men, to you, heirs of the great
Irish heritage of faith, of indomitable
perseverance, of matchless courage,
you who here in this land are heirs
to the heritage of liberty and free
dom; to you, children of the toiler, of
"the bold pioneers and defenders in
the field"; to you, I come and ask,
W'hat shall we do with this inherit
ance? Your answer shall be the answer
which your dimmed eyed and moist
ened cheeked forefathers made to their
ancestors as they looked for the last
time upon their native land and their
loved ones. That answer was a pledge
that they would show themselves
worthy of all the best that they in
herited from those who had gone be
fore them.

Dr. Edwards' Olive" Tablets, the sub
stitute for calomel, oil the bowels and
positively do the work.
People afflicted with bad breath find
quick relief through rr. Edwards'
Olive Tablets. The pleasant sugar
coated tablets are taken for bad
breath by all who know them.
Olive Tablets act gently but firmly
on the bowels and Mver, stimulating
them to natural action, clearing the
blood and gently purifying the entire
system of impurities.
They do all that dangerous calomel
does without any of the bad after ef
fects. All the benefits of nasty, sickening,
griping cathartics are derived from
Olive Tablets without griping, pain or
di-sagreable effects of any kind.
Dr. F. M. Edwards discovered the
formula after seventeen years of prac
tice among patients afflicted with
bowel and liver complaint with the at
tendant bad breath.
Olive Tablets are a purely vegetable
compound mixed with olive oil.
Take one every night for a week and
note the effect.

movement all its own." 10c and 25c

JUDICIAL PROBE
INTO DEATH OF
ADMIRAL EATON
Hlngham, Mass., March 17 The
death of Rear Admiral Joseph O. Ea
ton, U. 8. A., retired, was the subject
of an inquiry in the district court
here today. As in the proceedings
of Saturday, which are aid to be ot
an informal and preliminary nature
Associate Justice Edward B. Pratt of
the Hingham district court presided.
District Attorney Barker, - who is in
ehargre of the investigation, would say
nothing this- morning regarding the
indemnity nor the number of witness
es who have been summoned to ap
pear.
"Every persons who may have any
knowledge of the death or cause of
death of Admiral Eaton will be called
before this matter ie finished," he
said.
Among, those who were understood
to have received summonses were
Medical Examiner Osgood, who per
formed the autopsy on Admiral Ea
ton s body; Dr. Frame, who visited
the admiral during his sickness; and
Undertaker Sparrel, who cared for the
body. It was expected that Mrs.
Eaton and her two daughters by a
previous marriage, Miss Dorothy Ains-
worth, and Mrs. June Keyes, would
also be called.
The inquiry was secret and whether
Admiral Eaton died of poisoning or
from natural causes may not be
known until Judge Pratt files his re
port with the superior court in Ply
mouth. The Judge said that his find
ings would not be ready probably for
a week.
This case seems so important," he
added, 'that I shall weigh with un
usual care every statement to be in
cluded in my report."
An organ recital of more than ordin
ary interest is scheduled for Thursday,
March 27, at the "Washington Park M.
B Church, when Walter Henry Hall,
former organist at the Cathedral of St.
John Divine in New York, assisted by
Miss Alice Esther Smith,' contralto,
soloist at the Classon Avenue Presby
terian Church, Brooklyn, will appear
in this city. Miss Classon, who for
merly sang in the church she will visit,
will renew many friendships. As the
instrument upon which the well known
organist will operate la considered one
of extremely pure tone a large gath
ering is anticipated.
