THE CALUMET HEWS. PAGE THIRTEEN Prospects of "New Ireland If ItUh.iril Croker, the once iM.utuai lt.,,l,r of Tammany hall, stood at hH f.'ve.rlte window in me I cmcratio ,',., f Now York one line afternoon .,sl Week. '. W,,i,w ,;,; thc. Kny panorama of Fifth ave nue, discoursed upon "tl( now Ire land." -Wo have our Now .South ovor on this stele-," 'In said, "ami I've seen tht mw South Bruw. Hut you have l.circl iM.thintf hero ilium t the Now Irelund. which 1 am seeing grow. I fa not the same Inland it was twenty yes, (Vtn ..nyenr ago. It was taken on a t , . life and has started all over ,main to cHvch.p into the richest, most prospcruiiH and contented iart of Fu ropo." The veteran politician's eyes glow ed with enthusiasm when lie wild this, mid there was a noto of yearning in yoiee as 'he added: "And how beautiful Ireland is! It is always green, and it Is ever rest ful to the co. I have traveled a bit in ny time, ami I know of no spot on tho earth as beautiful as Ireland, i nm elvlmr right now to get bank there. I'M bo there again within three weeks an J then I'll be "happy." Depicts the Wonderful Change. Mr. Croker's rapture was occasioned by his visitor having hew n him an t icrpt from a peoch recently deliv ered in the house of commons 1y W'in .sii.n ('hurclilll on the difference) be tween the Inland of today, Intellectu ally, socially and Industrially, and tho Inland of 1SS6, when (Jladstone made his tir.-t groat fight for home rule, and of the astonishing changes that havn 1 i'cm wrought in the iicople rince tho liar case of the land tenure act. ".Mr. Churchill doesn't tell the whole t"ty, no, not even half of It," declared Mr. Croker, after carefully scanning the excerpt. "I don't believe the an nals of the human race show such an awakening among u w 'hole people as Is now fining on in lrciand as a direct, result primarily of the restoration of canity to tho Irish themselves. There is no comparison at nil between the Ireland of :ny boyhood days and the lit lain! of the present. "It is with the tar of the last twen ty years only that a comparison can he made. In that, time I have seen with in,- own eyes and enjoyed with my own heart a development that riv als any tale of Action. "In that time social order has taken Pie place of anarchy, prosperity has mii' coded poverty and happiness has driven out misery. Homes Within Reach of the Poor. "I'uder tho new land law no poor man need be without a home o hi own in inland a homo that belongs to l.im and that lie can beiucath to his heirs. "I i inl.-sin the harrowing recollec tions of the misery and iH.verty of the Inland or my boyhood let us come down to si i short a time as twenty years ao. I'vcn then two or more families llve.l in a single hut with a nml Hour i.n.l this they had to share! u il h their pig.i and goals. "Now every family in rural Ireland lives in a modern house of its own, 'I" ' i " li t by the government and paid for by tie owner In rent so low that no aide-bodied man can complain of the rust as a hardship. "All of thin marvelous change has l'tii brought about by the new land law a-sed by the Uritish parliament. I'twlep that law. If you are a poor man in Ireland and I have more land than 1 1 actually need, you can apply to the j local board th.it constituted a part of the Irish land i ominisoloii and have a pert of my xutplus aTcn net aside for your ukf and ow ncrshtii. The gov ernment will buy the 1. nd from ine at u value appraise. I by the. board, and turn it ovor to you after putting up a one-ste.ry house for y u ut a cost of about I:0ii0. "You owe mo nothing. Your entire Indebtedness is to the government. You pay out of your crops or other earnings to the government every Mar what amounts to a minimum o( per tent interest In the total. Buying on the Instalment Plan. "In other words, you pay about r0 a year rent for your house and the name proportion on your land. You j cun pay mojo every year. If you carej to. As soon as the government gets back what It paid out for you the! ptr;erty 1-s yours. j "Why, In the last two or throe years tho government has out olitht of that kind of tenants on my ow n land, live I miles out of Dublin. Mark you. th ! government did not ask me If I want led to sell these eight different pieces, of about an acre each, to the tenants who now occupy them. Fueh of them , let the local board of the land com mission know that ho wanted an acre I III' I1IV hlllll M llh u ImiKil It Tl,r, was no argument about It. The board simply appraised, each parcel in turn, and dispossessed me In favor of the 'poor man who needed it." i "And didn't you kick about tills?" jMr. Croker was asked. I "liless me, no!" his voice boomed 'out In merry laughter. "It would have done no good had I kicked; and I besides I didn't want to kic k. There was no kick coming to me. I own Ave hundred acres, minus the eight or so that have been taken from me, and that was more land than I actually need. The tenants on It now are hard working nun, and they are rearing respectable and happy families. "That is so much bettor than the poverty and misery and crime of the I Ireland of my youth that I am only glad that the new dispensation has been ushered In by the present land laws. Hach hies a pretty little garden around his house, and Mowers now grow where rank weeds used to grow. Houses for Day Laborers. "This class of tenants oii must un derstand, are not fanners. They are day laborers. tut If one acre can thus be taken .by the government and turned ovor to poor tenants, larger tracts can bo taken by the same process. These larger tracts, from twenty-five acres up, are cutting up the great estates of Ireland and converting them rapidly into small farms. It Is this that is making Ireland happy and prosper ous. For the first time in centuries the Irish people know that b work and good order they can own the soil on which - their oppressed ancestors for generations toiled, without hope of reward, for absentee landlord. It is telling not only It4 the increased pro duction of Ireland and the content ment of the population, but also in the growth of the population. The figures show that emigration from Ireland has dropped remarkably in the last ten years. The people are sta.xing at home because they are coming Into the land they love." "In the meantime has the attitude of Lnglnml toward Ireland undergone a change?" "You have put the cart before tho horse," Mr. Croker Ha Id. with a whim sical smile. "The attitude of Ireland has changed toward Kngland. lailand Is slow to change. Hut Parne Hism has taken tho place of I'Ynlanisin among the Irish people. Instead of d.namite and dagger, they are now using en lightened argument and are appealing to the sense of fairness of Kngland. Fcnianlsiu is dead; I'arn llism is more vital than when the doctrine of pa tience and peace was preached by ltd founder. As a result the people have gone to work, and they are making the glorious old islam! blossom like the lose." Then Mr. Croker made; a startling announcement. "If," he said, as if measuring his words exactly to suit his thoughts "If Ireland were not un der a foreign Mag, my advice to the young man in crowded America, es pecially tlio Fast, would be a para phrase of Horace tirieloj's advice for ty years ago, when I was a joung man In New York: 'do to Ireland, oung man.' It is a poor man's land. "All we need now to All Ireland's cup of happiness to overilow ing is homo rule, and we'll get that very soon now.
