The Kentucky Irish American
has eschewed partisan politics lea n
lug the politicians to their fight
It is only when partisanism has de
veloped into bigotry or personal in
justice or sought to mislead our
people into a course unjust and de
trimental to themselves that we
have interposed to expose the
falsehood or defend the individual
We are the organ of no political l
party owe none of them anything
and expect nothing from them
indePendene e t t
as a hog on ice Weave fully aware
that politicians and those whose
interests are political or whose par
tisanism blinds their judgment and l
blunts their sense of right have
disapproved and even denounce I
r our course For this we care noth
ing except so far as they may tend l
to influence others in their effort to t
serve their political masters though I
he whose only argument is denun
ciation generally has a poor case
Our defense if it can be called a I
defense of Col John H Whallen I
has been criticised to some extent t
by indiyivuals who not content t
with disapproving our course have
exaggerated misrepresented and l
added thereto and heaped abuse
upon us and Col Whallen Now I
we know that many of those zeal
ous advocates of the cause of those
under whom they hold their petty
political offices contracts or jobs
owe their all to the friendship and
ofCo1 Whallen in days

= of him only prove themselves in
grates as well as subservient tools I
to those who have no love for the
Irish and will apply a vigorous i
kick when they have no further
tote for them Of this they will in due
time have indisputable proof as the
scheme is already under way since
the new allies of their masters must
be rewarded by something more
than has been done for them
But as to Col Whallen In poli
tics he Isa politician as shrewd as
the shrewdest So long as the
attacks on him were political it was
none of our affair and we did not
interfere But the present effort to
besmirch and injure Col Whallen
r while due to partisan politics is not
politicainor prompted by politics itI I
is bigoted malice undertaken toI I
gratify the antiIrish element re
cently brought into the camp of theI I
v Democratic 0 managers of this
city This element which for a
time controlled the Republicans I
locally and was kicked out after
floundering around have landedI I
and cs is developed by investiga I
tion played an unsavory part in
the election in this city Whal
leu they hate and delight in any
thing to his detrimentnot because
dfot hiii politics but because of his
1natIcns iUty and religion It is time
the Irish regardless of politics i
should know this
Col Whallen has no interest I
whatever in this paper He owes I
us nothing We have not always I
agreed with him politically But I
politics aside Col Whalleu as a I
man a citizen in business in I
o charity in his relations with his J
fellow men is the peer of any and 1
in integrity worth and benefit to J
the community is the superior of 1
r noxsmalf number of his traducers 1
but he is Irish and that is enough 4
to fuatify any assault upon him if J
he dares to differ with and refuses
to aid the schemes of those who 4
now denounce and would persecute
him though not Jo lq they
sought his advice and assistance in 4
every undertakingp i
There may be grounds for the I
charges against Col WtutUoi bat 1
the courts will settle that and Col
Whallen is as he has always been I
anxious for a speedy trial The
animus has been shown by his ene
lilies in exaggerating and misrepre
senting the case and in striving in i I
every way to defer a trial deprive
him of every right and opportunity
under the law and to hound and
humiliate him Their charge of
bribery has after hearing only the
prosecuting evidence resulted in an
indictment for conspiring to at
tempt bribery a misdemeanor
and his bond reduced from 10000 I
to 1000 But even with this he
is denied a trial till next Thursday
and it is now known it will not
occur then
The same effort and every tech
nicality that able attorneys could
devise have been applied to defer
even an examining trial of Senator
Harrel whom Whallen is charged
with attempting to bribe and whom
Whallen charges with obtaining
money under false pretenses His
hearing is set for the 27th but it is
not likely to occur them The whole
scheme is plainto subject Col
Whallen to the humiliation and
odium of a criminal under charges
without the opportunity to prove
his innocence or the guilt of the
man who accused him and all for
the sake of gaining some political
advantage and gratifying the bigo
try of the new recruits who are
also led to expect to fill the posi
tions held by some of those Irish
men now joining in condemnation

We hope not but it is just such
action on the part of employers that
causes most of the serious labor
troubles We allude to the arbi
trary refusal of the Louisville City
Railway Company officials to meet
and confer with representatives of
their employes concerning matters
mutual between themdespite all
assumption to the contrary as much I
the business of the employes as of
the company for both are interested
therein The employes presented
their request as to hours wages
etc in a respectful way and the
reply of the company was equally I
so So far so good But the sub
sequent refusal of the companys
officials to meet the representatives
of the employes who do not con
sider the answer satisfactory is not
only improper but it is unjust to
the employes who have been faith
ful have conducted themselves or
derly and respectfully and it is
wrong from every standpoint in thisI I
country and contrary to every sense
of right of the American people
President Minarys reasons which
he states are those of the Directors
are not sufficient to justify their I
position nor their course They
claim that their duty is to manage
the affairs of the company for the
stockholders who elected them
True and they properly exercise
the right to speak and act for the
stockholders While not specifically
denying the right of their employes
to organize and act jointly they do
so in effect when reusing to meet i
and confer with representatives selected
lected and authorized by their em
ployes The Directors rightfully
protest against interference with its
business by outsiders but an emJ J
ploye is not an outsider and r is fully
entitled by law and justice j to a
hearing and a voice so far as his
relations with the company are con 4
cunedI I

resorts to violence and is the chief
impetus to the spread of socialism
and anarchy and the sentiment
against corporations which enjoy
privileges under the law and use
their power to deprive others of
their legal rights The right of the
employes to be heard through their
representatives is precisely the same
right on which President binary
and the Directors speak and act for
the stockholdersthat they have
been selected and authorized to do
so If President Minary means that
the employes have no right tp select
and authorize others to represent
them then he denies to them a
right exercised by the stockholders
of the company utterly ignoring
the law which makes no distinc
tions but recognizes all men as free
and equaland in this country all
employes are men with rights equal
to the employer This point has
sentiment of the public is con
cerned It is true it has cost much
of money hardship loss of proper
ty life and limb but after all it had
to be conceded by those who denied
it and we are indeed sorry to note
ethat the officials of the Louisville
City Railway Company are among
those antiquated behind the times
and still refusing to see and under
stand the progressive phase of the
labor question based upon justice
and reason resulting in peace mu
tual respect and cooperation of em
ployer and employe but prefer to
adhere to the ancient idea of master
and manthe man silently and pa
tiently subservient to the masters
We hope the railway officials will
be induced to forego their ultima
tum and treat their employes with
the courtesy and justice they de
serve If their requests are un
just or unreasonable or would be
injurious to the interests of the
company a friendly conference
will easily demonstrate it the re
quests will be modified the griev

their interests are mutual confident
that each will treat the other fairly
and there will be harmony and
good will with a sense of security
against strikes or lockouts the
cause for which will be removed
There can be no harm come from
the company agreeing to receive
and confer with representatives of
its employes and amicably settling
differences Much harm not only
to the company but to the city and
its people may come from its per
sisting in its refusal to do so the
entire blame for which will rest
upon the officials of the railway
company And with all due regard
ation they have not the right
to force a strike with
its attendant inconvenience loss
disturbance of the peace and men

He has faith in all the future can with
