O'CONNELL The Anniversary of a Sight n That to This Day Has Not Been Equaled. UHchanziBg Patriotism and the Unfail Ing Gratitude of the Irish Race Nobly Illustrated. The Address of Sir John Grey and Lord Mayor's Response The Great Procession. the NEW ERA IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND The 8th of August, 1804, will long be remembered in Ireland, and particularly in the metropolis of Ireland, which wit nessed a sight that has never' been equaled. Although seventeen years had m elapsed since the death of the liberator, it -was not long after that the idea of national monument, to commemorate his great achievements, was broached. .Dining the seventeen years that elapsed since the death of O'Connell, the English press asserted with more or less elabora tion of argument and pretense of proof that tne desire manifested by the Irish people for a repeal of the union was but a passing enthusiasm with which a clever agitator had inspired them a delusion which could not outlive his time a folly which they had outgrown as soon as it had ceased to be recommended to them by the persuasive tones of the only man who could ever have induced them to be lieve in it. These assertions served as a sort of ex cuse ior me maintenance m Ireland ot a domination against which almost the en- . tire population protested; but their chief purpose was to deceive foreign nations as to the real depth and intensity of na tional feeling. They were utterly false, as was proven by the hundreds of thou sands of visitors who came to Dublin to witness the impressive ceremonies and p.oire their fidelity to a noble principle their adherence to the cause and rever ence for the memory of a great man who served their country faithfully, though lie did not achieve the full measure of success for which he labored. In the honors paid to the memory of O'Connell, the unchanging patriotism and the unfailing gratitude of the Irish race were nobly illustrated. They made of that day a holiday for Ireland. They ut aside all otlier things to take part in movement which would show their biding fealty to the Irish cause. The procession, which was one of the was composed of all classes of the people every trades union of the city turning out its full strength. On the morning of thethistoric day the trade unions of Dublin which were to participate were assembled at their ap pointed places, while around St. Stephen's Green were congregated the deputations from Galway, Limerick, Drogheda, Navan and other cities and towns. At 10:30 the procession was fonned, the head of which passed the residence of Daniel O'Connell. The procession was headed by O'Con nell's Body Guard, closely followed by the stonecutters, in whose ranks was drawn the first stone of the intended monument, and the coachmakers, who drew the "triumphal car" in which O'Connell was drawn from Richmond prison in 1844. Passing from Merrion square, the vast procession wound along into Clare street and Nassau street. At the Batik at Ire' land the greatest concourse was assent' bled, at least 80,000 persons being con gregated. Passing by the Exchange the procession passed into Sackville street (now O'Connell street). On the river, from Carlisle bridge to the point of the North wall and the Ringsend docks op positc, all the vessels were dressed for the occasion. Arriving at the place where the monu ment now stands, the late Sir John Grey read the following address in the pres ence of the Lord Mayor and other promi nent officials: "The people of Ireland meet to-day to honor the man whose matchless genius won emancipation, and whose fearless hand struck off the fetters whereby six millions of his countrymen were .held in bondage in their own land. "Thus shall this monument teach our children, and our childreus' children, from generation to generation, the great lesson of O'Connell's life. In it, so real ized, Will be embodied, and by it will be perpetuated, his principles and his policy, Thus shall the noble image of our Tribune ever speak from this platform to the Irish race, teaching them how liberty may be won how it may be used with most ad vantage to all and how best and most securely to maintain and transmit it. un impaired and untarnished, to posterity." To this the Lord Mayor replied: "A sor rowing nation mourned, and still mourns, over the grave of him whose match less 'services and labors are recognised throughout the civilized world, whose teachings and principles have marked a new era and inscribed a new chapter in the history of mankind. ''Lifting their aspirations toward heav en, the Irish people take heart to-day, and, assembling as of old, proclaim to the world that the spirit of the Great Tribune still lives still animates their hearts, and still guides their movements, thus presenting a living . testimonial to the genius, wisdom and teachings of their illustrious liberator, "All may' not have fully appreciated the glorious deeds of the emancipator of IUions of bis fellow countrymen, or re st the herculean labors of the unfUnch r advocate of the legislative iodepend- to the immortal O'Connell the crown of glory to which he is entitled as the ora tor, the statesman and the champion of civil and religious liberty all over the world." After the conclusion of the Mayor's address, the cornqr stone having been laid, the proceedings terminated. THE FIGHTING RACE.

What Is Being Done to Secure the Release ot Irishmen Confined In British Pris ons Their Condition. The usual weekly meeting of the Irish Amnesty Committee was held on Monday evening in Dublin, Mr. Troy presiding, Messrs. Bernitnghatn and Kelly report ed as to their visit to Mr. Henry Wilson in Portland jail on Thursday last. Mr, Wilson is in fairly good health, much better than he was, on account of being allowed now to work in the open air. He is to be released in November next, hav ing spent fifteen years and six ntoiiths in prison, the six months being extra pun ishment fcr breaches of prison discipline, which Mr. Wilson states was for whis pering to his poor comrades to keep their hearts up. Mr. Wilson latterly complains of the action of the Government in his case, as it was conveyed to him two years ago by a visitor that he would be released soon. The Home Secretary hail promised as much, and instead of being released, the Government had made hint complete the full fifteen years and an additional six months as above stated. Mr. Wilson is very much concerned about the men who will be left in jail after his release. These poor men are not in as good health or spirits as Mr. "Wilson is, and a special effort should be made to have them all released at the same time, as the effect of their comrade being gone would perhaps be the means of addinor melancholy to their already prolonged sufferings. The committee having considered this report, decided that the Home Secretary should be written to and asked his inten tions as to the remaining prisoners now in Portland. If his reply is not satisfac tory, a vigorous agitation will be com menced for the purpose of .effecting their release. The State convention of the Young Men's Institute of Indiana 'will convene at Terre Haute August 28 and continue in session three days.'

The Buckingham Theater, entirely re modeled and refitted, was last week opened for the season of 1898-9!), and the many patrons who had during the sunt mer months keenly felt the want of bright amusement flocked to see th initial performance, which was Irwm Brothers' Burlesqtters. Notwithstanding the heat, the theater was filled at every performance, and, truth to say, the num her of fans and ventilators made the in terior of the theater much cooler and more comfortable than an ordinary room The Buckingham Theater has for long time been the only first-class vaude ville house in the city, and the manage ment has spared no efforts or expense to maintain and surpass this standard The house itself is conceded to be the prettiest and best equipped in the city and probably one of the handsomest in the country. The bookings comprise only the first-class combinations, and, though they have for the past decade been pleasing Louisville audiences, it is promised that this season's attraction will be far superior to nnything yet offered. The Buckingham is under the able management of the Whallen Brothers, who arc members of the Empire Circuit of vaudeville theaters. Many of the old staff of employes are retained for this season, among them be ing Horace McCrocklin, the efficient treasurer; George Lippold, whose smiling face will be seen at the box-office, and Charlie" Hertzman, who will be in charge of the press advertising. Commencing with tomorrow's matinee the Gay Morning Glories will be seen at the Buckingham during the coming week. That this attraction is strictly high-class and meritorious can be seen from the following description: Tile old-time first part, with its worn gags and stereotyped songs and dances, is eliminated from thi3 show, and in its place will be found a number of strong specialty acts, such as Grant and Grant, the colored Kohinoos of rag-time songs and melodies: Miss Liunctt Fiske, a charming vocal star, in the latest catchy song creations; Wills and Barren, a clever, pair of comedy entertainers, in a livel sketch; McCabe and Sabine, two of funniest of Irishmen, in brilliant repa: rot -Visit wit and humor; Miles and uon, prKs-UlL'LU an act that is n vaudeville, and whit?...

The closing feature of this big show will be "The Red Birds at the Seashore," a comedy satire on the leading events of the year. Miss Dorothy Neville, long known as one of the leading lights of E. C. Rice's 1492 and the Lady Slavey Com pany, will be the star burlcsquer, assisted by a score of beautiful girls in gorgeous array. Clever comedians will make this a veritable laughing festival. Brilliant scenic and electrical effects will be shown, together with a patriotic review, entitled "The Dawn of American Liberty." This is a glorious finale, introducing the Cuban, Philippine and Hawaiian native songs and dances and the pleasing melodies of our national airs. The Gay Morning Glories Company numbers thirty people. The matinee performances occur on Sunday, Wednesday and Saturday. The "Little Colonels" are playing to good houses at Macauley's. Edward H. Sothern will bring out in Philadelphia next week "The Conti nental Dragoon." Mrs. James Brown Potter will be seen as Miladi in Beerbohm Tree's production of the "Three Guardsmen."

Dr. Daniel Murphy, of Hobart, Tasmania, one of the provinces of Australia, celebrated the golden jubi lee of his consecration as a Bishop the other day. The distinguished Archbishop is an uncle of Mr. Daniel F. Murphy, our popular City Assessor. Dr. Mnqthy, who is eighly-three years old, is said to be as straight as n pine and enjoying good health. Some of the events in his life recall another age. He was made a Bishop by Pope Gregory XVI. While in Rome in 1810 he offi ciated at the obsequies of the Irish states man and patriot, Daniel O'Connell, who died in Genoa en route to Rome. Arch bishop Murphy was born in Cork, June 18, 1810, and is a graduate of Maynooth and n man of profound scholarship. He has been in India with the British troops, but gave it up for the cooler climate of Tasmania. As an evidence of the creat regard which he has won during thirty-four years of religious work the people of Tasmania have erected a statue in the streets of Hobart to. his memory. The Governor of the province, Lord Gormans ton, was at the head of the movement. and observed that the people did not want to wait until the good man died to . show him honors. Dr. Murphy's brother, C. C. Murphy, was long a resident of Louisville, and died here several years ago. CHURCH NEW5. tVrchbishog John J. Kain, of St. Louis. was in New York City during the past week.

It will be re membered that Dr. Shannahan gave a course of ten lectures on "The Idea of God" last year before the same institu tion. His second invitation is a notable evidence of the breadth of mind and foresight of the authorities of the Uni versity of Pennsylvania, as well as a high compliment to the scholarship of Dr. Shanuahan. The Rev. James Nunan succeeded in winning the degree of Doctor of Divin ity at the recent examination held at Rome. He is the second son of the late John Nunan, a national teacher of Ard fert, Kerry, Ire. He commenced his col lege career at Mungret College, Limerick, in 1888, under the training of the Jesuit Fathers. During his five years' course he won many distinctions. He took out his B.
