It was far from being: an Ideal St.
Patrick's day was yesterday, but the
undaunted sons of Erin celebrated,
nevertheless, and as If to make some
recompense for the miserable condition
of the .Blush-covered streets, the sun
shone brightly and oh?erfully during
the greater part of the day. making the
spirits of the uaraders light and buoy
ant, even if it did make the walking
just a little worse every hour it Rhone.
' The courage of the men who braved
the condition of the utreets yesterday
to do honor to their patron saint Is to
be commended. The parade was under
the ai'.s:lces of the Ancient Order of
Hibernians. Board of Krin. and was a
most creditable one. Over 1.S0O men
were In line. There was tdenty of
music, und the Stars and Stripes and
Sunburst Hunted proudly on the breeze.
The iatrlntlc members of one of the
Carbondale divisions wore neckties
made of stripes of 'red. white and blue,
to prove that while they honored the
memory of their native land's patron
saint, they also honored the land that
has been the favorite place of exile for
so many of Ireland's gallant sons.

bernians, Board of America, of the
county, held an election during the
morning hours, which was followed by

parade was highly creditable to the
Ancient Order of Hibernian societies

ury and musical entertainment under

of Ancient Order of Hibernians. Hoard
of Krin. in St. Thomas' college hull, in
the evening. Hev. F. P. McNally. of the
West Side, was the speaker of the occa
sion and his theme wus "Ireland." It
was an eloquent and stirring address,
couched in beautiful language and
teeming with ' rich gems of thought.
Here ure excerpts from his introduction
Ireland! What glories are recalled by
that name! What figures of gramluer
ami lowliness, greatness and degradation
come before our eyes as we conlemplute
thee! Ireland an anomaly among the na
tions. ll-r great men soaring aloft to the
very zenith of a raininess; their nnma
rendered Illustrious by their deeds and ac
tions, which proclulms the nubility of
their characters. Kxceptlonnl. Ingenious,
with few equals and no superior in ull the
higher walks ami. alms of life: laboring
under and surmounting difficulties that
would have proved Insuperable lo,uny

ttrst appearance upon the stage of time,
and particularly fo- many years after tho
preaching of St. Patrick.
Prudent und sagacious In council, elo
quent in expression, pure in morals. In
tensely religious, loving and kind In tho
home circle, peaceful und devoted to le!i
arts of peace, when" peace was honora
ble; then, when the dash of arms re
sounded. In the redress of wrongs, in tha
defense of their house a terror of the
wrong-doer i,d " i invincible barrier to
the invader. The days thut ure now pass
ing in review before us were Indeed the
golden duys of Irish hls'ory. the days of
the warrior C"U. when Ireland's alorlo is
banner, the Sunburst, floated free unit
unirammcled over the hills and vales of
fair KHm and their deeds and uctlnns
were In full pluyt that gave a life nnd a
meaning to the immortal words of Thom
"Erin, remember the days of old.
Ere her fuithles sons betrayed her."

her children's children tho wide world
In reviewing the Irishmen in America
today and their imerest In furthering
the material, political, social and re
ligious welfare of the country, he said:
In the carrying out of this noble work
the Irish element must necessarily be a
prime moving factor. They are already a
strong numerous and influential body In
the land und will necessurily multiply nnd
Increase rapidly In the future. Thn.
airaln. the Irish Catholic Is guided by the
salutory teaching of an unerring chur -li,
whose divine mission Is to make men vir
tuous, upright and honorable citizens,
promoters and cultivators of every good
cause that has tho well-being of the re
public a Its object.
GREAT MORAL POWER,
Enllfchtened by thl'i principle no far-se.
Ing statesmen can deny the Ingle of events
or gainsay the fact that the Catholic
church Is the greatest moral power for
good in this republic, or that her faithful
practical followers will always be the
staunchest bulwarks of the nation's In
.tltutiuns and h.r devoted and unflinching
defenders In Ihe day of the nation's peril.

talaed Its Many Frleada.

ica, Division No. 4. of the Hoard of
Erin, and St. Joseph's Total Abstinence
and Benevolent society, received holy
Elaborate preparations had been
made by Division for the affair In the
evening. There was such a large crowd
In attendance that two halls were nec
essary for the accommodation of the
members, their wives and daughters
and guests. St. Joseph's hull was where
.the main part of the celebration was
held. Three tables runnig the length
of the hall were loaded Sown with eat
ables furnished by Caterer M. J. Kelley.
and after it wus impossible to seat any
more tables were set up in the meeting
room of the division in McDonough's
Hev. John Loughran, pastor of St.
Joseph's church, was the guest of honor.
He sat at the head of the center table.
In all there were about two hundred
persons present ranged around the
three tables. County President William
Dawson and Senator J. C. Vuughan,
president of Division No. 17, were pres
ent and occupied prominent places. The
first order was the enjoyment of the
banquet and after each one wr.s served,
remarks were made by Rev. Father
Loughran, Mr. Dawson and Senator
Vaughan. The tables were cleared
away and those who hod banqueted In
McDonough's hall joined the main
gathering and an hour was spent In
a programme of vocal and instrumental
music. The entertainers were Miss
Katie Reardon, Miss Jennie Loughney,
Edward Murphy, John D. Gwynne and
Patrick Coyne. William J. Burke was
AT THE CATHEDRAL.
He. Father Malone Preaches the St.

Three masses were celebrated at St.
Peter's cathedral in honor of the feast
of St. Patrick. A high mass was sung
at 8 o'clock at which service Rev. Father
Malone preached the sermon.
He took as his theme the patron
saint of Ireland and told in an elo
quent and instructive manner of the
grent work which this saint accom
plished; how he so firmly planted the
seeds of Christianity in his chosen field
that after fourteen centuries it Is
stronger than ever, although during
nearly half of thla time every effort
was made to stamp out the original
ADDRESS ON ST. PATRICK.
Delivered Before Young Men'a Institute

for members in their rooms on Lacka
wanna avenue last night in honor of

A. McGinley on the life of St. Patrick.
Musical numbers were rendered by
Frank O'Horo. P. F. McLaughlin. Ed
ward O'Malley and Peter Snyder.
AN AtiBEEMKXT REACHED.
Plan Outlined by Councilman Koche Will
Probably Be Accepted.
Providing that councils do not object,
Mr. Roche'c scheme for the permanent
settlement of the West Market street
difficulty will be consummated. At the
conference held last evening the Turn
pike people subscribed to the Roche
plan and arrangements were made to
have the details of the deal adjusted.
8. H. Price, the city's special attorney
In the case, was selected to represent
the committee of councils and W. W.
Watson, counsel for the Providence and
Ablngton Turnpike company, was chos
en as the company's representative. To
these two men the matter will be re
ferred so that all the legal points may
be considered and if they come to a con
clusion satisfactory to the parties con
cerned. It will be referred to some dis
interested attorney for review. Then
the committee will make its report to
councils and ask favorable action on its
If the thing goes through a knotty
und troublesome question will be settled
and a first-class outlet to the country
districts to the north of us will be pro
vided. At present the city Is bound by
a contract with the Turnpike company
to keep the road in good repair in con
sideration of the company abolishing
toll gates within the city limits. When
this bargain was made It wus judged to
be u very desirable thing, but as time
went on it developed that it was no
bargain at all. but Instead a very ex
pensive deal. The city could not afford
to keep the road In such a condition ns
would satisfy the turnpike company
and a law suit resulted In which the
company recovered what money It had
expended in repairing the road. The
verdict has not been collected however,
as yet. S. R Price, has the matter be
fore the supreme court aqd expects to
not onlv secure a reversal of the ver
dict but to free the city from its very
obnoxious compact, holding that It was
Illegal for the reason that a municipal
ity cannot enter into a contract for a
greater length of time than one year.
SPECIAL COMMITTEE NAMED.
While this affair was being argued In
councils, the idea of an amicable ad
justment suggested itself and the result
was the appointment of a special com
mittee to Mather data and submit rec
ommendations for providing the city
with an outlet to the north. Mr. Roche
was made chairman of this committee,
and as in all things which he under
takes he went at the work In earnest.
After u few meetings he had worked
out a plan that h thought would cover
the ground and submitted it to the com
mltte. The committee . unanimously
favored his ideas and agreed to hold a
conference with the Turnpike company
to ascertain how they would take to
the plan. At the llrst conference the
matter was explained to them, and.
having thoroughly considered it, they
met with the committee again last
night, and came to the agreement above
Mr. Roche's scheme, which has been
explained at length in The Tribune is.
In brief, as follows: The company Is
first of all to release the city from the
objectionable contract. Then It Is to
cede to the city seven-eights of a mile
of the road, beginning at the corners,
which the city must grade and pave.
The company must grade and pave
about the same distance of the road.
This will permanently Improve nearly
all of the road that lies within the
city limits. No toll gate is to be estab
lished within the city.
CAN CHARGE AS Ml'CII TOLL.
As the Turnpike company can charge
as much toll for the fraction of a mile
as it can for a mile, the cutting off of
seven-eights of a mile of its total
length will not reduce its earning ca
pacity. Another consideration which,
no doubt. Influenced the Turnpike peo
ple In looking with favor upon the
proposition, was that the Increased
amount of pleasure driving which the
improved road will attract will swell
their tolls to no small degree.
Then, again, the possibility, rather
the probability, that the Supreme court
will decide against the company might
also have been Instrumental In prompt
ing them to approve of the Roche prop
osition. At all events there are strong
hopes that the matter will now be set
tled amicably and to the satisfaction
of both the city and the company.
A PECULIAR REMEDY.
Something About the New IMscoverjr for
(From Mich. Christian Advocate.)
The Rev. F. I. Bell, a highly esteemed
minister residing; in Weedsport, Cayuga
Co., N. .Y, In a recent letter writes as
follows: "There has never been any
thing that I have taken that has re
lieved the Dyspepsia from which I have
sunered for ten years except the new
remedy called Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab
lets. Since taking; them I have had no
distress at all after eating and again
after long years ran sleep well. Kev.
F. I. Bell, Weedsport, N. Y., formerly
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is a re
markable remedy, not only because It la
a certain cure for all forms of indiges
tion, but because It seems to act as thor
oughly In old chronic cuses of Dysen
sia as welt as in mild attacks of Indi
gestion or biliousness. A v person has
dyspepsia simply because the stomauh
Is overworked, all It wants Is a harm
less vegetable remedy to digest the food
and thus give It the much needed rest.
This Is the secret of the success of this
peculiar remedy. No matter how weak
or how much disordered the digestion
may be, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will
digest tho food whether the stomach
works or not. New life and energy is
given not only to the stomach but to
every organ and nerve in the body. A
trial of this splendid medicine will con
vince the most skeptical that Dyspepsia
nnd all stomach troubles can be cured.
The tablets are prepared by tho Stuart
Chemical Co., of Marshall, Mich., but so
popular has tho remedy become that
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets can now be
obtained at any drug store at 0 cents
