The young men of Division 0 antici pate a large crowd at the ball park on Sunday, September 11, when they play the nine from Mackiu Council. The Kentucky Irish American is read by more Hibernians than any other pub- lication. It contains more news for those it represents than all the daily papers combined. " James Campbell, of Division 3, who has been seriously ill for the past mouth, is now on the road to recovery, and his friends hope to sec him at the meetings in the near future. Roger McDcrmott, of Division 3, who has been on the sick list for the past six weeks, was able to le present at the last meeting of the division.

Thanks are returned, with the hope that each member will perform his part in increasing our subscription list, Mr. Frank G. Cunningham, of the Young Men's Division, was a visitor at the meeting of Division 3 Wednesday evening. He entertained the older mem bers with an interesting address and in vited the division to attend the ball game. Mr. James J. Brown, of Eighteenth and High, was the recipient of an ovation at the meeting of No. 3. Mr. Brown is one of the real workers of the division, and his efforts in behalf of the lawn fete con triuuted in no small measure to its great success. The forty-sixth annual picnic and games of the Board of Erin, of New York, were held on Monday, August 15, at Cosmopolitan l'ark. Among the prom inent Hibernians who were present was Edward L. Carey, the county delegate of the board. The Rev. John F.

The lawn fete given by Division 3 at Lion Garden Monday evening was a great success. I lie oiucers and committeemen entertained the vast throng present in a royal manner, and maintained the repu tation of the division. A handsome thing was done in the awarding of the two prizes. The Kentucky Irish American takes pleasure in announcing that Division 0 is to renew the monthly soirees that proved so popular last winter. The first one will take place at A. O. Hall on Tuesday even ing, September 20. As heretofore they will be complimentary, admission being by invitation only. Brothers Kennedy, Tierney and. Daniel have the affair in charge, and assure all who attend a most delightful time. A very enthusiastic meeting of mem bers of the Ancient Order of Hibernians, concerning the proposed regiment of which Major M. F. McGowan has been named as Colonel, was held in Troy last vveek. The Major presided and Lieut. M.( McNamara, of Albany, acted as Sec retary. After some discussion aa to regimental officer, the following-com mittee of selection was appointed to nominate and report at a meeting to be called hereafter: Major McGowan, Capt. Win.

He laud ed at Queenstown on June 21, and paid a visit to his home at.Glin, County Limer ick, and from there went Dublin, He was charged by the Hibernians to deliver a kindly message of greeting aud an ao ceptable little present to William Dun nan, the relative of Wolfe Tone. PLEASANT AFFAIR. Such Promises to Bo tho Pic nic and Social at Lion Garden. There will undoubtedly be an immense crowd at Lion Garden Monday evening where the picnic aud social of Division No. 5, A. O. II., will take place. Til different committees have been laboring zealously for several weeks past, and are now confident of giving one of the most interesting nnd pleasant entertainments in the history of the Hibernian organiza tiou in this city. This picnic and social is given not only for pleasure and sociability, but also for a very worthy cause to assist the suffer' ing poor in the famine stricken districts of Ireland. This is a most laudable act on the part of this division, and should materially swell the receipts. Messrs. Treston, Claireand Smith hav been untiring in their efforts to have pro- vided suitable amusements for young and old, and have secured first-class music for the dancing hall and park. The garden has been put in the best possible condition for this occasion, and the street cars will run until the close THEATERS. Miss Merrie Osborne lias been engaged to play the maid in "The Turtle." The Buckingham Theater done a good business this week. There is no cozier vaudeville house in the country. Mrs. Charles E. Evans, well known on the stage as Minnie French, had a bicy cle accident near her summer lionie m New Jersey on Friday, and broke one of her legs. The Avenue Theater inaugurated its third season auspiciously Thursday night with a minstrel show as the opening at traction, and from now on popular prices will prevail throughout the entire season which will be a long one, lasting until May 1, 1899. Macauley's Theater will begin its sea sou on September 9-10, the ever populcr Al. G. Field's great minstrel organiza tiou playing its annual engagement at that time. On the afternoon of Septcm her 10 returns from the Corbett-McCoy fight will be read from the stage. . Packed houses at Madison Square Garden gave vent to their feelings by frequent bursts of applause at the clever manoeuvring of the ships in Mr. Imre Kiralfy's spectacle, "Our Naval Vic tories." The exhibition is a decided novelty to tlie public of New York, and has undoubtedly caught the popular fancy. By the coalition of W. S. Cleveland's minstrels and George Wilson's newly or gauized venture the public will be given both a surprise and a rare treat. George Wilson and Billy Emerson have both won high honors in minstrelsy and toured-the laiidwith grand organizations of thei own, but by this latest arrangement above noted they will both appear at opposite ends of the first part for the first time in their triumphant careers. As both coined ians are prime favorites and a "whole show," their enthusiastic welcome is in sured everywhere. Wilson and Emerson are two great artists, of widely different methods and of enormous personal pop ularity. Wilson and Cleveland's big show will be seen at the Avenue Theater Thurs day and Friday, August 25 and 20. Lovers of vaudeville, pure, select and high-class, with no burlesque or horse plays to detract from its merit, will be amply provided for at the Buckingham the coming week-, commencing with the matinee to-morrow, when Girard's Inter- Ocean Vaudevilles open for a' week's engagement. It is a pleasure to note the many names of well-known and well meed vaudeville stars combined in one show, and it is not saying too much that the show promises to be the best seen here in many a long day. Deservedly heading the bill will be found Miss Gracie Emmet and Harold M. Shaw, the dra matlc favorites who, assisted by the lit tle comedian, Eddie Russell, will present sketch by Arthur J. Lamb, entitled "Why Papa Consented." It can be taken for granted that this will be a treat in the way of genteel comedy. Another act of the same nature, so far as high-class merit goes, but vastly differ ent in style and execution, is the one-act skit, "Only a Joke," which will be pre sented by the original comedy trio, com posed of Emmunds, Emmerson and. Emiuuiids. On the list of entertainers is found the Louisville favorite, Emma Cams, whose sweet voice, pretty face and charming mannerisms are fresh in the minds of all the vaudeville patrons. Others nre the three Constantino sisters, dainty comediennes, from the Alhainbra Music Hall, London: James II. Cullen, America's leading comic singer; the four Columbians, a quartet of the most expert instrumentalists seen here; Lapell and Edwards, producing "A Dream in Dutch;" Harriet Nicholson, the dancing sunbeam; the Davenports, a pair of, dainty singers and dancers, artid the three Barretts, comedy club jugglers, whose futiuv mannerisms and wonderful dex terity with the Indian clnto place them at the top s entertainers. j DUBLIN. The Largest Demonstration in the History of the Irish Metropolis. America Was Weil Repre sented Lord Mayor Ban quets the Visitors. The press dispatches say there was an enormous concourse of people in Dublin Monday to take part in the ceremonies of laying the corner-stone of a monument to Wolfe Tone, the Irish revolutionist, in commemoration of his patriotic services in the rebellion of 179S. An immense procession, the largest ever seen m that city, representing all classes and interests, headed by the Lord Mayor and Sheriff and including dele gates from every part of Ireland and many foreign delegates, among whom were special deputations from Maine nnd Massachusetts, marched to St. Stephen' Green, where the foundation stone of the memorial was laid. Eloquent and patriotic speeches were made by John Dillon, M. P.; John E Redmond, M. P., and others. John O'Leary and C. U. O'Coiinell, of New York, were at the head of the pro cession. The dny was observed in Dub lin as a holiday, and nearly all the shops were closed. The display of American avd I-rench flairs was verv large. The "Marseillaise" was one of the most pop ular airs played by the bands. James Stephens, the I'enian leader, rode in th procession in a carriage. The American Australian and French delegates were the recipients of many cheers. When Mr. O'Leary laid the foundation stone he used a silver trowel tthat had been sent fortheiurposebyan American grandchild of the Irish hero. In the evening the Lord Mayor gave a banquet in honor of the foreign delegates at the Mansion House. Interest in the ceremony outside of Ireland was greater than in any event that has transpired in Ireland for many years. The Nationalist corporations of Cork Waterford and Kilkenny also took leading part in the celebration, and other representative public bodies worthily fol lowed their example. The day was ob served as a municipal holiday in Dublin aim win douoiiess marK an cuocu in Irish national life which future genera tions will look back upon with pride, re membering not alone the greatness of Tone, but also the greatness of the honor paid his memory on August 15, 1898, by the people whose weal and advancement lay so near his heart. In honoring the memory of Tone the people of Ireland honored themselves also, as well as showing to England and the world that the principles for which he so nobly and so unselfishly fought and fell are the principles which animate their hearts And souls in the great strug gle for Irish national independence. LABOR NEWS. Tho Coming Celebration Will Be the Largest Ever Seen in Louisville. Four thousand cloakniakcrs in New York city nre preparing to strike for shorter hours of toil and an increase of pay for some of the articles made. The-annual convention of the National Association of Stationary Engineers will meet at Pittsburg, Penn., September C, and be in session about ten days. The cail miners are locked out at Paua, in. lucre are only seven non-union miners in the place, and two of them are now in jail for unprovoked and malicious shooting. Messrs. B. J. Sands and L. J. Keiffcr, who recently made a trip through Ken tucky in the interest of the cigarmakers, have met with the most gratifying re suits, on their trip. A big picnic and athletic meeting will be held on Labor Day at Oak Island Grove, Boston, bv the National Irish Athletic Association. This will be its first picnic in four years. The Central Labor Union at n meeting held in Boston recently ndopted resolu tions commending the good work on be half of union labor of the Rev. John F. Cummins, rector of the Church of the Sacred Heart, Roslindale. The Centralia Colliery, the largest in the Pennsylvania anthracite coal region, which has been idle for several months, undergoing repairs, has resumed opera tioii3. The colliery, when in operation, employs over 1,000 men and boys. The Oshkosh wood workers' strike was practically settled Wednesday. Repre sentatives of the companies and commit tees of their former employes had a con sulfation, with the result that satisfactory terms were agreed upon, and the men will go to work. The lodges of the International Asso ciation of Machinists of Cincinnati, have completed all arrangements for the annual outing of the craft, which takes place at Mt. Lookout Park oil Saturday. August 27. President James O'Conuell, of Chicago, will be present. The Kenton and Campbell County Trades Assembly has appointed a com mittee to prepare lists of nil those coal dealers throughout Newport and Coving ton who nre handling non-union coal and boycott will be instituted against the coal iu all Kentucky cities. The General Federation of Women's Clubs, through their President, Mrs., W. B. Lowe, is making an earnest attempt to secure the appointment of at least two women on the National Labor Couiinit te, authorised by a recent act of Con- gress. At the recent convention the 1 question was laid before the clubs and favorably reported on. The Trades and Labor Assembly, of Covington, which represents some 7,000 union men or more, have decided to take an active part iu the fall elections in Campbell and Kenton counties. The leaders of the organization claim that the city government has not employed union labor when it should, and it is their pur pose to support only those candidates for office who promise to advocate and uphold Union labor. The cigarmakers of Louisville are or ganizing new forces. Clubs will be formed in each ward and sulxlividcd into precincts. The organized ward clubs nre patterened after similar institutions Chicago. That city organized first in the United States and the instant recognition its worth has received induced its mtro auction in Louisville. The purpose of the movement is to decrease the sale of non-union cigars. The Federation of Trades and Labo Unions of New Jersey held their twentieth annual congress iu Paterson. Twenty six unions from various sections of the State were represented by forty-seven delegates. Addresses were made urging the necessity of securing candidates at the coining election who favor labor meas- ures. Various speakers denounced the present Republican government of the State as inimical to the interests of the workingman. . According to the report of a committee appointed by the Trades Assembly of Covington and Newport there are 100 "sweatshops" run iu this State. Many of these small shops are run by Russians and young girls who are employed to sew in them are paid $ 1.50 to $'2 per week for 12 to 1-1 hours work per day. As there is no law in the State covering places of this character the assembly has decided to attempt a reform in prohibit ing the working of children by asking the General Council of both cities to pass ordinances governing iu some way these matters. The labor people are jubilant over the prospects of having the largest labor day parade in the history of Louisville, Every meeting brings inquiries from per sous or unions desirious of participating in the festivities. The salesmen, the paperhangers and the printers will ap pear in costumes. The Central Labor Union has generously invited all unions not affiliated with the central body, and also all unorganized labor, to join hands with them for the day. The industrial feature of the parade will probably be one of the most entertaining. The Commer cial Club and the Board of Trade are working iu conjunction with the unions to secure its success. No admission fee will be charged to Phoenix Hill Park where the entertainments are to be con ducted. At the meeting of the General Commit tee Thursday evening it was decided to extend a general call to business men to participate in the-paraucund enter floats, Several firms have already responded fa vorauiy. me Hour ot tlie parade was changed to 2 o'clock iu the afternoon The aides to Chief Marshal Humphrey Knecht were announced us follows William M. Iliggins, Robert H. Weber, John Fuchs and John W. Stephens. The division marshals will be chosen at the next meeting. The parade will be headed by a carriage iu which will be Mayor Charles P. Weaver, Chairman H. Chris ten, Secretary George De Souchet, of the Committee of Arrangements, and Mr, Charles Jacques, the orator of the day. bout thirty labor organizations will par ticipate iu the parade. AQUINAS UNION. About five years ago, in 1893, the Rev J. L. O'Neil called a meeting of the young folks of St. Louis Bertram! con gregation together for the purpose of forming a literary society on n different plan nnd basis front nny other fn the city. The young men and women were charmed with the idea and entered heart pnd soul into the work. Four large rooms were secured on the lower floor of the school building adjoining the church and were fitted up in an appropriate manner. Subscriptions were solicited and an excellent library of several hun- dred volumes was secured as n founda tion. And thus was the Aquinas Union established. In one of the rooms which had been, fitted up as a chapel were en tertainments held designed to bring out the latent talent of the members, and -here many of the most prominent men of the city came aud talked so earnestly to the Union as to stir them to renewed efforts. The lawyer, the physician, the writer, the priest, all came to give of their knowledge and to open to the mem bers undreamed founts of learning and to inspire them to greater heights. The Union was complimented from all over the country, and the membership in creased rapidly, soon reaching over 130 Just at the height of its prosperity the oeiovea . director, l'nuier U'rveu, was called to New York to take the editor ship of the Rosary Magazine, and the Union was left almost prostrate. It was a blow from which it.never fully recov ered. Although other capable directors have been put in charge the membership has dwindled perceptibly. At present is very suian, out me prospects nre bright for nn increased list in the fall, The present officers, who include some of the' original members, are: Richard Edeleti, President; John Bell, Vice Presi dent; E. J. Leuehau, Treasurer; William McDonough, Corresponding nnd Finan cial Secretary; Frank McCormack, Re cording Secretary; Misses KatherineToo mey, .Katherine Lanan, Mamye Keefe, Librarians; Thomas Casey, Marshal. Directors: Doctor Melton, Walter Hens- Tey, John Crotty, James McDonough, Missjosie O'Neii, Nellie Lincoln, A, C. Hughes, Hannah Callahan. In the latter part of September a dra matic entertainment will be given, tlie cast being composed entirely of members of the Union, among whom' there is quite little dramatic talcnt.i .J MlfHAPI f AW PP National League officials in fining Freed llll VHrtUL YV lwLii man, of New York, $1,000 for ordering Ono of Louisville's Substan tial Irish American Citizens. Mr. Michael J. Lawlcr, whose cut we print with this issue, was bom in the County Carlow, Ireland, Februnry 20, 18 10. He left Ireland at age of ten, when he came to this country, lauding at New York, wlience he proceeded to Newark, N. J., where he completed his education, graduating from the High School of that city. At this tunc Mr. Lawler was ap prenticed and learned the trade of stone cutting. From Newark he proceeded to Nashville, where he followed his trade MICHAEL J. LAWLER. until 1801, when he joined the Confed erate army, with which he went through the whole war, being promoted to the rank of Captain in 1803 for meritorious conduct and daring bravery. Upon the cessation of hostilities Mr Lawler came to Louisville, and from that time has been n respected resident of this city. Since coming here he has been identified with the Confederate Veterans Association, and has taken n prominent part in all Irish and trebles union matters lor a number ot years. In the clays when the Knights of Labor were n powerful organization he was twice Master District Workman without opposition, and served several terms as President of the Stone cutters' Union, also representing the lat ter iu the central labor body, where he was regarded as one of its wisest ad visers. For the past eight years he has been engaged in street contracting, and be cause of kindness and liberality men em ployed by him consider themselves mosf fortunate. Mr. Lawler is married and has an iu teresting family. Recently he established his son, Michael D., in the grocery busi ness at Nineteenth and Duncan streets, Although he has been repeatedly solicited to run for office, because of his great popularity, he always declined, preferring business rather than a public life. However, lie takes an active nana in politics, mid the man or liieasurerecelv- ing his support never fails to carry the day, SPORTY ITEMS. Casper Leon says he will not be ready to box any one until next October. The Little Colonels struck out at Ma cauley's Theater. They have been taken to Indianapolis. It is said that the Chicago Club may discipline Outfielder Bill Lange by laying him off without pay. McCoy says he intends to fight Corbett at the middle-weight limit. He wants to duplicate Fitzsimnions' feat. McCoy de pends ou no one to train him. Peter Malier says he intends to take a trip to Sau Francisco. He declares that he has received a good offer to box n "noted" heavy-weight there. After Toln flroderick's victory over Otto Sieloff, Charley White issued a dial lenge on behalf of Broderick to meet nny light-weight in the business, barring the topnotchers. Dick Hurge. who Has signed to oox "Kid" Lavigne in America next October, has finally induced Arthur Akers, the present English middle-weight chain pion, to ugiit mm. Steve O'Donnell joined Jim Corbett at the latter't training quarters, Asbury Park, Wednesday, and will remain with the ex-champion until Corbett's contest with McCoy is decided. 'Australian" Billy Murphy, who is staying atRoslyn, L. L, is anxious to meet Tommy White, Solly Smith, Jack Dow ney, George Dixon, Joe Bernstein, or any other man, at 112 to 122 pounds. Jack Dougherty has sigifed articles of agreement on behalf of Matty Matthews to meet "Mysterious" Billy Smith on September 5.. The bout will be for twenty-five rounds at 142 pounds. "Doc" Payne, the sparring partner of Kid" McCoy, and "Tom" McCarthy, formerly of Woburn, will meet at Buffalo on September 10 in conjunction with the Hawthorne Athletic Club fistic festival. Hamilton, Keeler, Burkett and Fnrrell lead the League in batting m the order named, ranging from .388 down to .359. Louisville has no representative in the 300 list, Dexter being highest with ,293. Although Kid McPartland is matched to meet Jack Daly at Coney Island on August 29, he has also consented to meet Owen Zeigler nt the Lenox Club on August 19. The bout will be limited to twenty-five rounds. According to Tom O'Rourke, George Dixon is taking the best care of himself and will be in the ring again to tackle anybody in his class. Dixon, however, will confine himself in the future to men only in his division. One season Nichols was paid 500 extra for pitching one game out of his turn. The club agreed when he signedto pay Jiim that amount for pitching extra games, but he was only called upon once that season, so he was virtually paid $500" for pitching one game. Base-ball fans of this city nifd the, pub lic iu general indbrse the action of ' the ''''' his team from the field in a recent game with Baltimore, but disapprove of the suspension of Ducky Homes. Slraillaced persons, who regard prize fighting with loathing, nre beaming upon Tommy Ryan, the welter-weight cham pion, and many would gladly shake him by the hand, for Tommy Ryan risked his life Sunday last nt Bridgeport, Conn., and saved the life of a drowning man. Jack Smith will accompany Billy Rotchford to England after all. The fact that Martin Dowling has refused to back Rotchford ogatnst "Pedlar" Palmer does not seem to have disturbed the former, who declares that he will keep his con tract with the National Sporting Club of London. Tommy-Ryan, the welter-weight cham pion, of Syracuse, announced that if James J. Corbett, iu view of the tragedy iii his family, did not desire to meet Mc Coy in Buffalo September 10, Ryan would take Corbett's place, fighting in the middle-weight clnss for any purse satisfactory to McCoy. President James A. Hart, of the Chica go Club, has possibly forgotten tlie ex istence of the magnates' anti-kicking agreement, signed at St. Louis, judging from the behavior of his players on the field. They have indulged in more row dyism than any team that has visited the Polo grounds this year. Sir Thomas J. Lipton's challenge for the America's Cup has been indorsed by the Ulster Yacht Club. Front general toni lnent there appears to prevail au idea that the match will be the easiest and quickest ever fixed. The Secretary of the club is,named Kelly, and the Captain who will sail the cup challenger is named William O'Neill. One of the promising ball players of this city is young Sam Sullivan, now playing with the Rcccfus team. Manager, Kelly, of Mobile, tried to secure him for the Southern League. He plays short stop and third base equally well, and be sides being a heady player, is a fast base runner and reliable batter. His friends should hear from him, as he will yet catch on iu fast company. Paul Pons, champion Grseco-Roinan wrestler of France, and Tom Cannon, who brought Yousouf, the "Terrible Turk," to this country, wrestled at Wal ton, England, on July 30, for 200 n side. Pons, who is nn athlete, six feet seven inches tall and weighing in condi tion 259 pounds, gave a mnsterly exhibi tion, although he lost. Pons is a native of Marseilles, and has been wrestling since 1881. W. J. M. Newburn, the Dublin Uni versity broad jumper, who has twice this season improved tlie world's record, ecljpsed all his remarkable performances fiy clearing twi'iity-four feet six and three-quarter inches nt the Mullingar sports on July 18. Marvelous as the new record appears, there is no doubt that it was fnirly established and will be ac cepted by the authorities. The honorary Secretary of the A. A. A. was present Ah H1S?Lini?a,!(J vouched for the correqi ness of Newburn s jump George Considine, Corbett's manage is iu Buffalo. He ridicules the idea that the Buffalo ministers or the Erie county Sheriff will succeed in breaking up the fight between Corbett and McCoy. Con sidiuc says his party will go to Buffalo fully prepared to be arrested and to give bail if the authorities interfere. He says further that on their side at least every effort will be yiade tp pull off the fight as agreed upon, and he is sure that every provision of the law will be strictly com plied with. After winning Saturdny'sdouble-header from Pittsburg, President Ilanlon ven tured the prediction that the Orioles would be in the hunt for the flag. "Just wait three weeks," he said. "And I am greatly mistaken if by that time the Bal timore Club has not proved itself very much in the rape. You do not see the Orioles talked of much nt present, but I know that the men were never iu better shape to make n gain; nnd, what's more, they have the opportunity. No great harm has been done until the club has lost a hopelessly greater number of games than thd teams which precede it. When we have played off the ten games in which Cincinnati has the better of us, then it will be seen exactly where the Baltimore team is. I say we still have a fine chance to win out, and if the men can maintain their normal batting gait, that pennant will yet come to Union Park." Sulzer's Park, New York, was made gay Saturday afternoon by the sons of the "Kingdom of Kerry ' who assembled to take part in and witness the eighteenth annual games of the Keirymen's P. and B. Association. Throughout the after noon the Gaelic language was prevalent. One stray cockney was attracted to the ground and spoke encouragingly as Jim Mitchell, the pride of Tipperary, threw the fifty-six-pound weight. The strange accent irntated the imported Gael to such an extent that, he hurled the handle of the big weight straight for the English man and demolished his $1 straw hat. The real fun commenced when the ath letes had disposed of the open events and the lads who had the stamp of County Kerry on their faces turned out for the members' races. Con Sheehy, the star, not only wore spikes in his shoes, but was ndonied with the "Maltese Cross" of the Pastime A. C. He was placed on scratch iu the furlong run. Next to him were-the men who wore bicycle and gym nnsiuni shoes, while Pat Q'Connell, who disdained modern accoutrements and ar rayed himself in long pants and brogues, received the. limit. Every one rooted for Pat, but Con Sheehy, with the spikes, was unbeatable. In the hop, step and jump Pat O'Conuell took off his brogues and leaped in his bare feet, but again Sheehy with the spiked slioeswaa the victor. Iu the half-mile run bueeuy scored ins intru win, despite the fact that O'Conuell donned a pair of running pumps, which, with his natuial ability, enabled him to lead until a furlong from the finish. All matter for publication should reach this' office not later than Thursday, aid. FRANKFORT. Grand Success Was the Picnic Given hy the Ancient Order of Hibernians. Last Tuesday the Iliberniansgnvc their initial picnic at Cove Spring Park. ' The day wns n delightful one, nnd brought out a larger crowd, who enjoyed them selves ns never before. The dinner nnd supper were pronounced the best ever served nt a Kentucky picnic. The committees had lnliorcd zealously for the past three weeks, and had pro vided nil the amusements that could be introduced at a picnic. To prove that their efforts were crowned with success it need only be slated that Division No. 1 was enabled to add over $200 to its sink ing fund. There were three amusing cake walks, the prizes being carried off by Miss Nel lie Reagan and John Doolan and Leo Meagher and Miss McGrath. Master C. Fugazzi was given a cake by the judges for being the cutest boy on the floor. A beautiful gold watch was won by Miss Mary Newman, she beini: voted the most popular young lady. The other prize winners were Misses Emma Hunt nnd J. Seibold, Mrs. Pat O'Brien and Mrs. John T. Buckley. Rev. Father Donnelly, of Georgetown, and Father Vermillion, of Lafayette, Ind., honored the picnic.by their pres ence. There was a great demand for copies of the Kentucky Irish American, which was highly complimented by all who have read it. The Frankfort division has n crack ball team, and is anxious to meet any of the other division nines. GEORGETOWN. Next Wednesday will be "Dewey Day" in Georgetown. It will be celebrated in grand style by the Catholics and their friends at Kecfe's woods, near this city. Base-ball, all kinds of races, dancing and many new and novel attractions will be there, and large crowds from neighboring towns will undoubtedly conic over and spend the day. Too much can not be said of the beloved Father Donnelly, pastor of St. John's church, who has worked untiringly mid ceaselessly for the success of the picnic, which wBl un doubtedly net a nice amount for St. John's church, for whose benefit it is given. LEXINGTON. Col. James Coleman, of Louisville, State Secretary, has been trying for some time to orgnnize a division of the Ancient Order of Hibernians iu this city, and it seems that success has about crowned his efforts.
