the town people have not been af

the Herald has pointed out how the
town and peoplo could bo benefitted,

A GREAT LEADER DEAD.
The death of Charles Stewart Par-
nell removes from tho scone of Irish
political strife one of tho most re
markable Irishmen of this or any
other tlmo. Descended from men
distinguished for their patriotism and
valor, he Inherited many traits of
character that mado him noted as a
leader in the cause to which he de
voted his manhood. No son of Ire
landnot oven Daniel O'Connoll or
Robert Emmett has so endeared him
self to the hearts of his countrymen as
Charles Stewart Parnell. No Irish
man has succeeded more In arousing
the fires of patriotism among his
countrymen, nor had any Irish leader
ever dono so well in exciting Biieh a
world-wide degree of sympathy for the
Irish movement as tho late leader of
the Irish Parliamentary Party.
Those who admired him In the hey
day of his power, will prefer to re
member hlra for his ardent devotion
to his country's cause. The fortunate
occurrenco that blighted his political
career and dimmed the rising sun of
Irish independence, brought sorrow
to the hearts of all lovers of tho Iilsh
Now that Parnell has gone before
his maker, let charitable hearts draw
a veil over the act which precipitated
his downfall, and hope that with the
death of this celebrated Irishman nil
factionalism will be wiped out, nnd
that the Irish people will once more
present a solid front in their battlo for
A more disappointed person than
tho "freak" who writes to tho Chron

trying to stir up strife. He Is too
slow to be In the swim and too lazy to
think of what would be of benefit to
his town. He ought to emigrate.
