IRELAND. Record of the Host Important of the Recent Events Culled From Exchanges. Nationalists in Rooskey arc falling into line in the United Irish League. A branch will soon be in working order in the district. It is estimated that the damage caused by the recent fire at Messrs. Scaly, Bry ers and Walker's. Dublin, amounts to about $200,000. A movement has been started by the parishionora of the Holy Family parish. Aughrim street, Dublin, to erect n me morial to the late Rev. James P. Murphy. On the recommendation of his Grace the Duke of Abercorn Mr. Win. G. Mc Kinney, Lettcrkenny. has been appointed a Justice of the Peace for County Don egal. Very Rev. Father Curry, Drogheda, has written to the Drogheda Corporation expressing his desire to have religious ceremonies in the church in memory of the sufferers in the 1898 insurrection. The ceremonies will take place on No vember 6 and 7. Sir Andrew Reed, Inspector General of the Royal Irish Constabulary, accompan ied by his secretary, Mr. Harrel, arrived in Belfast on Tuesday from Dublin for the insncction of the local police. Sir Andrew, who expressed himself well pleased with the general efficiency of the men, left Belfast frnday. Rev. P. Sheahan. parish priest of Killkee. County Clare, died October 5, All the business houses in the town closed when it became known. Father Sheehan was a sterling patriot. Previous to his assuming the pastorship of Kilkee he was in Birr. Kincs county. His remains will be interred in the parish chapel. Miss Cahill, assistant teacher of Bruise National School, Virginia, who, at the July examinations, secured first of first with a percentage of 80, besides reflect ing credit on herself, speaks well for the Baggot-street Institution, Dublin, under the care of the Sisters of Mercy, from which Miss Cahill obtained her diploma. With deep regret we report the death of Mr. Malachy Lee, which took place at the residence of his brother, Mr. John Lee, Ballymoe, on Saturday, aged sev enty-six years. The deceased belonged to one of the oldest and most respected families in Kilcroan. Hjs remains were removed to the family burial ground at Ballintubber, followed by a large and re spectable funeral cortege. At a meeting of the Clontnel Corpora tion, Alderman Nugent presiding, it was decided, on the motion of Mr. J. F. Slat tery, to adopt the public libraries act The Literary Institute, a very handsome and well-appointed building, has recently been handed over by the trustees to the corporation on behalf of the town, and it is intended to set up the library there. British statistics relating to the taxa tion of Ireland for the years 1897-98 show that the country has been over taxed during that period to the extent of fourteen millions of dollars. Amount drawn from Ireland by British misrule is almest thirty-six millions of dollars, while Ireland's proper and legal contri butious should be but little over twenty one millions of dollars. On Wednesday an influential meeting was held in the Council Chamber, Town Hall, Carlow, for the purpose of consid ering the desirability of establishing a local branch of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children The meeting was convened by invitation addressed to the local clergy of all de nominations. A branch was formed and officers were appointed. Wednesday afternoon one of a number of men working on the steamship Innis fallen, discharging at St. Patrick's quay, Cork, named Patrick Murphy, fell be tween the decks while in the act of re movintr three coils of electric wire. He was taken in an unconscious condition to the North Infirmary, where he -died a short time after admittance. Murphy was about forty years of age. Intelligence has just reached Stewarts town of a serious stabbing case which occurred recently at Drammelle. Mon day morning Win. Banter and James Mclldoon were arrested by the Money more constabulary on a charge of hav ing stabbed John Vincent, who lies in a critical state. The depositions were taken before Mr. Hevlin, J. P., Monemore; and the prisoners were remanded. A fatal result was reported on Wednes day of the attempt made on Tuesday night week by Patrick Sheehan, inmate of the Limerick Union, on his life. Sheehan is over eighty years, and has been a considerable, number of years in the infirm ward. Nine days ago he pro cured a razor, and, while suffering from melancholia, cut his throat, the injuries proving fatal yesterday evening. The Ulster crack cyclist, George Rob ertson, did an extraordinary performance on Tuesday. Starting from the six-mile stone on the Antrim road, he journeyed to the fifty-sixth and back, thus doing 100 miles. Although indifferently paced, he completed the distance in fourteen minutes and odd seconds inside the rec ord. The watch was held by Mr. Shini mlns, one of the official time-keepers of the Irish Cycle Association. During the past ten or twelve days n extraordinary series of fires which, from their number and surroundings, give color to the belief that some at all events arc the work of incendiaries, have occurred in the Ardee district of County Louth. In each case stacks of hay, straw and corn have been destroyed, and in one case a threshing mill, which was in the haggard of the owner of the corn in readiness to thresh the next day. Wednesday night stacks of hay, etc., Adjacent to the com stores of Mr. 3. Keelan, in the town of Ardte, were to tally destroyed. Three nights previous some forty tons of hay and a quantity of corn, stored, in the farmyard of Mr. P. Mcuee, i. i'., in uisn street, were burned, and a similar fire occurred a few days before at Dr. Moore's residence on the outskirts of the town. Claims to the amount of over $5,000 have been already lodged with the Secretary to the grand jury. When proceeding to Balliiiagarde, County Limerick, Mr. F. A. and Mrs. Crokerhad a narrow escape from very serious injuries, owing to the horse at tached to the car in which they were driving becoming affrighted and causing the vehicle to be upset. Mrs. Croker sustained a fracture of the left arm, and Mr. Croker was shaken and more or less seriously injured. The car was badly damaged. Dr. F. Kennedy was in im mediate attendance. The revision of the Cork Parliamen tary and Municipal Register concluded before Mr. J. R. Stritch, Q. C, and Mr. W. H. Brown, B. L. A great deal of work had to be done, as the list included 14,000 names, yet the revison was cdn ducted with efficiency and expedition At the close of the proceedings a cordial vote of thanks was passed to the Revis ing Barristers on the motion of Mr. J. O'Leary, the agent of the Independent party. Francis Reynolds, aged thirty-eight, a river pilot, sustained injuries on Tnes day night near Limerick by falling from an outside car on which he had been driv ing with some friends. He succumbed in a few minutes afterwards. The de ceased was returning from Adare, when the horse shied at a steam roller, throw ing the deceased and his wife, who was seated beside him, on the road. He alighted on the back of his head and was rendered unconscieus. At the weekly meeting of the Belfast Board of Guardians held on Tuesday a communication was read from the Irish Workhouse Association, informing the guardians of the Committee of Meath's proposal to give $10,000 toward establish ing a Catholic and Protestant home for workhouse girls, the object of which is to give to such girls between the age of twelve and sixteen such a training as would fit them for domestic service. The master was instructed to ascertain how many girls of the age specified were in the workhouse at present. Record smashing goes on apace in the Irish cycling world. One of the latest and most meritorious performances stands to the credit of the National Cycle ped aller, who improved upon the fifty miles road record, which stood in the name of of n fellow-clubman, W. L. Martin, at two hours, twenty-five minutes, sixteen seconds. Meade was ably paced by three triplets on his errand, and being fortunate in avoiding punctures succeeded in cut ting in under the existing record by seven minutes, forty-one seconds. His official time was two hours, seventeen minutes, thirty-five seconds. Mr. Joseph Hayburn presided at last meeting of the William Orr Club, Lur gan, held at the club rooms of Brown street, when the following resolution was unanimously adopted: "That we, the members of the club, composed of dif ferent sections of Irishmen, call upon our representatives in Parliament to unite and show our enemies in Westminster that we are determined in having what Wolfe Tone and the United Irishmen fought ana died for one hundred years ago; and that we will never desist until we make Ireland what they shed their blood for, a nation among the nations of the earth." Mr. Heybum gave a short lecture on the life and death of William Orr. At the monthly meeting of the Sligo Harbor Commissioners an important let ter was received from from Mr. Fenton Crown Solicitor, Sligo, relative to the proceedings which have been going on for some time past regarding the rating of Sligo harbor. The case was first heard before the County Court Judge, O'Connor Morris, who decided in favor of the Harbor Commissioners, and this decision was upheld hi the Court of Ap peals. The letter was as follows: nave oeen directly ana unoiticiauy in formed that the Government intend to accept the principles developed in your appeal and decided in our favor by the Court of Appeals as final, and that they do not contemplate any further legtsla tion to disturb the present and long established state of the law," It was gratifying to find that the annual street collections on behalf of the city hospitals of Cork, made on Saturday last showed an increase when compared with the previous year. Collections were also made by the principal firms in the city the total amounts of which have not yet been announced, but they are considers me. Altogether a substantial sum was realized in excess of last year, and this without any unnecessary fuss or display. The ladies' committee had been criticized for the apathy U had shown in recent years, and the movement was not prop erly supported by the authorities of the hospitals that the collections were pro moted to serve. The plain speakincr had very good effect, and from all sides came nearly co-operation, with the re sult that various reforms were instituted and the movement that seemed on the road to failure was turned back to the ways of success. Mr. William Redmond, M. P., has addressed the following letter to the Right Hon. Gerald Balfour, Chief Secre tary for Ireland: "I desire to ask you to get the Lord Lieutenant to see if it would not be possible to recommend the release of the prisoners from Clare who are at present in Mountjoy prison. These men Hirst, Howard, James Cooney, Dennis Cooney, John Brody and Patrick Hartigan have no been incarcerated for nearly nine years. Their conduct in prison has been good, and, as the County Clare is in a very peaceable condition, it is reason able to expect that the Lord Lieutenant may now, after nine years, order the re lease of these nieu. Their liberation would be hailed with satisfaction all through the country and would greatly tend to preserve the present 'peaceabl condition of affairs. Martin Molouy who is, and who has for some time been, an invalid in Maryboro's prison, might surely also be released. HIBERNIANS. What They Have Been Doing the Past Week General News Notes. This has been a lively week in Hiber nian circles. Tom Kecnan keeps a watchful eye on the interests of his division. A new charter has been granted for a division at Charlestown, Mass. Division No. 2 is adding names to its membership roll every meeting. State President Martin Cusick was missed from the last meeting of Divis ion 1. The next meeting of the Hibernian Knighta will occur on Friday, Novem ber 11. President Lannon met with a most cor dial reception at the last meeting of his division. Division 1 has added another valuable member to its roll in the person of Dr. bhn Keaney. Remember the ball of the Hibernian Knights at Phoenix Hill on the evening f November 22.. The St. Louis Hibernian is doing good work for the order. Bro. Marnell is cer tainly a hustler. The St. Louis divisions are entertaining their members and friends with "wide open" receptions. Mr. P. M. Fichlie, of Division 1, of Frankfort, was a visitor at the meeting of No. 1 Monday evening. Reports from the various divisions to the County Board indicate that the order is enjoying a healthy growth. Another division is being organized in St. Louis, and the indications are that it will have a very large membership. Frank Cunningham is enthusiastic over the play to be produced and is entitled to the support of every lover of. Irish drama. The next meeting of the Young Men's Division will be a most impoitant one, and those who possibly can should at tend. The Ancient Order in Suffolk county, Mass., aggregates sixty-two divistons, with a membership of 7,000 in good standing. President John Hennessy, of Division 4, took care that all visitors, and particu larly the ladies, were amply provided for Tuesday evening. A branch of the Ladies' Auxiliary of the A. O. H. has been organized at Shieldsville, Minn., with a most en couraging membership. Thomas Cody, of Senu & Ackerman's, is the right man in the right place, and the members of his division are for him for anything he desires. William T. Median, of Division 2, is one of the most zealous Presidents of the order and should receive the hearty sup port of all the members. Deputy Sheriff Denny Helfernan was w rmly welcomed at the meeting and so cial of Division 4. The members would like to see him present oftener. Brother James J. Kenealey is one of the members to be relied upon when No, 4 cives a reception or soiree. He sees that the fair sex is fully represented. While all were enjoying their pipes and the smoke was ascending skyward Monday night several were heard to ex press themselves as of the opinion of be ing back in Ireland. Division 4 wisely selected Mr. Thomas T. Kellv for Recording Secretary. A more capable gentleman could not be chosen, and his minutes will prove interesting reading. Brother Jerry Hallinan delighted the members of No. 4 at their dance with his inimitable singing and sprightly dancine. Wherever there is fun the gallant Jerry is always to be found. Those who join any of the divisions be fore January 1 will be entitled to all the advantages and benefits of the great ex cursion to Boston under the auspices of the Hibernian Knights In May next. The many friends of Mr. Frank O'Con nor, ot tue courier-journal, win ieurn . . 1 with regret that the condition of his wife is steadily growing worse, and the physi cians have given up hopes of her recoV' cry. The Daughters of Erin of St. Louis are arranging to give a grand ball early in the new year. How would it do for the Ladies' Auxiliary of this city to fol low the example of their St. Louis sis ters? Brother Tom Lynch, of No. 4, has been left a large inheritance in Ireland through the demise of a relative of his. He is making hasty preparation to leave and claim his bequest, and we wish him god speed. Mr. Jerry O'Leary, of Division No. 2, who has been confined to his home on East Washington street for the past two months, suffering from malarial fever, is now able to be out and is visiting his friends. Messrs. D. J. Kennedy and John E. Yenner predict most favorable results for the drama to be presented by the young men. With a few more such workers al most any undertaking should prove suc cessful. State Treasurer Daniel Lynch, of the Michigan A. O. II., reports having re ceived about $325, contributions to the Irish Relief Fund, in response to the circulars issued by State President Me Laughlin in June last. The County Board has our smcerest thanks for its indorsement of our efforts to publish a first-class paper, and it will be our aim to improve with each issue and render all possible service to the Irish-American public. Brother Mike O'Donnell is one of the old guard Hibernians, and many were the expressions of regret at his absence Tues day night. He is a star comedian of the first magnitude and can alone keep large company in roars of laughter.

Brother Gannon rarely leaves a meeting before his melo dious voice delights the members with a song. ! Division 4 now enjoys the largest mem bership of any in the city. Its members are working hard to add names to the roll, initiating new members at every meeting, and the indications are that No. 4 will send the .banner report to the Boston convention. The Ancient Order of Hibernians have temporarily abandoned the project of building a great hall in Boston. It was thought that the entertainment of the national convention in that city next year would be all that could be properly handled at the present time. There is a rumor, current to the effect that Brother Taylor, the worthy President of No. 3, is at last about to renounce hnchelorliood. and all the mammas in the West End are speculating as to who the happy one is to be:" Meanwhile the val- iant Joe says nothing, but looks very wise. The members of the Young Men's Division regret the resignation of Presi dent Lawrence J. Mackey, which was caused by increased business obligations, Mr. Mackey was a most impartial and efficient presiding officer, and no young man stands higher with the members of the order. Young Men's Division, No. G, will hold an important meeting Tuesday, Novem ber 1. Among the other important busi ness before the members will be the elec tion of a President, to fill the unexpired term of L. J. Mackey, who, on account of other pressing business, will no doubt be forced to resign. , HIBERNIAN KNIGHTS. Company A, Hibernian Knights, held a business meeting in Hiuermau nan Thursday night, with Capt. Breen in the chair.
