no man knows my motives nor dare now
vindicate them let not prejudice nor
ignorance asperse them Let them and
me repose insilence ami my tomb remain
uninscribed till other days and other
men can do justice to my character when
my country takes her place among the
notions of the world Then and not till
then let my epitaph be written
Such were the closing words of Robert
Euimets address to the jury on the day of
his trial at the New Session House
Dublin in the year 1798 over one hun
dred years ago and time has but added
to their charm and beauty and year by
year the memory of the martyred Irish
patriot is more and more honored Espe
daily is this the case in our country
where his name and fame are household
words in the homes of the descendants of
the Emerald Isle
The Ancient Order of Hibernians hold
his reputation and glory in high esteem
and encourage the singing of his praise
and eulogiums of his noble martyrdom
and in order that the public and rising
generation may better understand his life
and death the Hibernians of Jefferson
county have decided to commemorate his
memory in a special manner this year
For this purpose they are going to pro
duce the celebrated Irish drama Robert
Emmet or the Martyr of Irish Liberty
at Masonic Temple Theater on Sunday
I night March 18 in honor of St Patricks
o day and for the benefit of the Boer bos

s nce on this day will be worn the sham
rock of old Ireland So too will the
shamrock be the binding link of the cel
ebration inasmuch as the stem shall rep
resent the Ancient Order of Hibernians
a society of freemen loving freedom for
all mcn One leaf shall lbe the memory
of Emmet whose honor will be more
honored the second leaf the proper and
grand observance of the patron saints
day and the third leaf substantial assist
ance to the Dutch nation far over the
waters who are now so gallantly strug
gling for liberty agaittst that archenemy
t of freedom Great Britain
The drama is a splendid one the plot
and climaxes being well worked up The
plot is laid in Maynooth in 1794 at the
time of the uprising and after portray
ing Emmets attempt at freeing his coun
try His being betrayed by Kernan ends
with his execution in Dublin In 1798
I While the sense of the play is sad and
serious the humorous side has not been
overlooked and there is plenty of good
rich comedy interspersed and cleverly
brought out
The Hibernian Dramatic Company has
been actively at work rehearsing for some
time past and everything points to a
splendid production of the play The
character of Daniel OLeary the old Irish
patriot will be in the hands of David
OConnell the star of the Trinity stock
company and a good actor
Tom Kelly a popular young Irishman
of fine ability will be seen as Patrick
Dowdall the friend of Emmet
The role of Kernan the traitor to the
cause is deep and serious but in the
hands of Joseph E Hill will be well por
trayed He is a splendid actor and adds
much strength to the company
S Sergeant Topfall of the British army
is a good character and will be cleverly
presented by Martin Fitzgibbons who
needs no introduction to our readers
I Darby OGaff who is going to start all
the fun and most of the mischief will
introduce Joseph Copncy than whom no
better selection could be made as he is
a natural comedian whose conception of
Irish humor is of the highest type and
sure to please Corporal Thomas who
has not much to do will be played by
Joseph Jefferson
Miss Adabelle Childress who is hand
some and talented has been assigned the
character of Sarah Curran Emmets
sweetheart Miss Childress is the pos
sensor of a beautiful voice and will pac
tray the feelinga of the part in a splendid
manner Judy ODougherty who is at the other
end of the fun with Darby OGaff will
give Miss Katie Barrett ample room to
display her talent Her preliminary
work has been most satisfactory and the
members of the company predict for her
a grand success
r The leading character of the drama
Robert Emmet will agalu bring before
the public talented and popular prank
U Cunningham and his selection for that
important role w1 1 ozs Th
entire performance wilt be under fats
direction which of itself assure a first

Ancient Order of Hibernians of Suffolk

Last Sunday Indianapolis Council of
the Knights of Columbus initiated sixty
members into the order and the event
will be long remembered by those upon
whom the degrees were conferred There
were two hqndred visitors present to
witness the ceremonies from New York
Chicago Cincinnati Louisville Fort
Wayne Cleveland Columbus Lafayette
and Terre Haute this city sending the
largest delegation
The first and second degrees were con
ferred in the morning under the direction
of Patrick McArdle of Chicago and the
third by John Ward of New York The
visitors and members were entertained at
a banquet at the Denison House in the
evening at which Mr A M Sweeney
acted as toastmaster and eloqunt reo
sponse were made by Rev Father Mc
Cabe William Money of Cleveland and
Hon Edward J McDermott of this city
Father McCabes patriotic address was as
The Catholic American I never wrote
a dictionary and I know little about the
use of synonyms but I wish to say that
Catholic citizenship and American citi
zenship are one and the same thing
There is no distinction between them
They are united never to be divided
Before this gathering of the flower of
many cities I do not want to be misun
derstood but take away from American
history the names of those Catholic
Americans who now shine on the pages of
the nations story and what remains
Upon = the Am ricancitizenslrlThp ids
t > i l
American soldiers are patriots and it
is upon their achievements that the des
tinies of the whole world depend We
may be expansionists or antiimperialists
but we should never forget that we are
American citizens There was a grandeur
in the remark made by St Paul when he
said I J am a Roman citizen but if St
Paul were here tonight he would say with
more majesty than on that occasion I
am an American citizen There is no
prouder title outside that of child of
God than that of American citizen
Our doctrine is that the heart that does
not love its country is too cold to dwell
with God Our church and our country
are entwined together in our heart
They are married and there is no dis
tinction between the love we owe one
and the other I speak not to the gal
lery gods I address myself to your
intelligence Upon the Catholic of to
day depends the future of the nation
We are here by ourselves and what
is to be gained by mincing matters
Alter all what is it that appeals to the
conscience It is the church and its
influences A politician once said the
church was the thing that enabled those
in control of the government to keep the
laws unbroken and maintain the respect
due to the nation I make no reference
I to the Irish Catholic the German Cath
olic nor any other Catholic except the
real American Catholic who is willing to
do anything to further the interests of
Ills country and church
That the Louisville Knights had a good
time goes without saying as can be
gleaned from the following account over
heard by our reporter
The last of the Louisville Knights of
Columbus delegation returned Monday
evening on the Big Four from Indianap
olis and to say that they were pleased
with their reception and treatment is put
ting it very mildly They were so to
speak simply carried away with the mag
nlficence of the degree work as well as
the bounteous hospitality of the Indian
spoils Council
Sixty candidates were initiated into
the beautiful work peculiar to this order
and in a manner second to none ever
given within the knowledge of those
present The Indianapolis Knights are
deserving of all the bouquets showered
upon them by their visiting brethren
particularly Sir Knights OReilly OCon
nor Sweeney Mooney and other prom
neat members of that progressive council

no trouble or bloodshed has marred the

the return of the Legislature to Frankfort
on Monday was looked forward to with
apprehension as it was thought a clash

wise prophets with bloodwading ten

usurping officers sat sidebyside during
the session of the Senate on Monday last

Whereas England instead of remov
