have to .pat. up at all kinds of botela and

HONOR DAY OF ST. PATRICK
Omaha Irish Meet in Memory of the Dear
Old Emerald Isle.
FATHER FITZPATRICK MAKES AN ADDRESS
;lvca at History of the Race From
the Day of Patrick to the Pres
ent and Prophesies Early
Freedom for Island.
Ireland's sons and daughters thronged
Schllti hall last night In memory of their
pstron sslnt, Patrick, who brought Chris
tianity and enlightenment first to the peo
ple of the Emerald Isle.
T. J. Mahoney, as chairman, announced
tt the beginning of the rrogram that there
would be a little singing of Irish melodies
before Rev. J. Fitrpatrtck. the speaker of
tje evening, would deliver an address en
titled. "God Save Ireland. "
The Elks' quartet, the Misses Gentleman
and John Gentleman, and Miss Ocnevleve
Croft, sang and played those old Irish melo
dies until the eyes of the exiled children
of Ireland were wet with tears and they
wiped them away unashamed as they smiled
at the aweeter memories that flooded back
with a new song. Battle hymns, love lyrics
and all of the wealth of Bong that Ireland
has were given to the audience until the
singers and musicians were too tired to
please them any more.
Theme of the Address.
Rev. Fltrpstrick in bis address touched
upon the fact that the Irish are a scat
tered race that reaches from tot far north
to the far south and from the orient to
the Occident. They were driven away from
their own country by a continued perse
cution extending over centuries and despite
that fact every Irish heart Is loyal to the
shamrock and the country it stands for.
The Irish are a race of honor; their
thoughts are high and noble and no mat
ter what flag they are fighting under, for
they are a race of warriors, tbey show the
same undying devotion, honesty of inten
tion and sturdy patriotism that destiny
has traced out through their forefathers a
thousand years ago. He said In part:
"It is 1,400 years since Patrick was seen
by the people sailing over the sea and was
met at the beach by tbia wild and savage
race. With hira he brought the cross, the
symbol of Christianity, and the idolatry
of the people became a thing of tie past.
They became an enlightened people and for
three centuries the monks of Ireland were
the teachers of the world. King Alfred
was a product of their teaching.
"Great honor and praise is due to Pat
rick for this work, which meant so much
to Ireland. He put in the hearts of the
people that honesty, sincerity, truth and
devotion that has never been found wanting
in any child of Ireland no matter how far
in space and time that child may be from
the heather-covered hi'ls of Erin.
Darkness and Llavht In Starlit.
"These three centuries were a time of
peace, plenty and good will and then the
barbarians swept down upon the land and
turned everything into strife and blood
shed. The wars were long and everlast
ing. Ireland was not strong enoush to
defeat her enemies, but tenacious enough
to live against this flood of blood, rapine,
and tyranny for seven centuries, and then
she bowed her head to the English who
took her and betrayed her and gave her
to the noblea to despoil.
"With their country lost to another king
they acattered and began selling them
selves to other countries to fight their bat
tles and often they .fought against their
bitterest foe, the English. ...
"But, now there is a ray of sunsiiine'
breaking through the darkness of .the
clouds and freedom for' Ireland is almost
discernible. Sympathy for our wrongs la
what we ask. When we have' sympathy
then Is public opinion evalnst the English
and our victory la assured. Ireland alone
cannot break from the yoke,' but with the
aid of an ally she will be all powerful
and Ireland would be once more a free
Ireland with the Protestant faction in the
north and the Catholic In the south a free
people and a nation of great deeds."
. Other Lertsrei.
A good aeetion of the Rt. Patrick's day
celebratora gathered lu -Lowe Avenue Pres
byterian church, Fortieth and Nicholas
streets, to hear William Kennedy's lecture
on Ireland,- its show places and heroes;
and to see the 106 stereopticon views
which illustrated it. Mr. Kennedy took
his audience, as In a journey, from Omaha
I through New York City to Queenstown
! and then tn a rirelo nf (tip mnnt lniAr.at.
lng points of the island. During the even
ing Mrs. Cook and lira. Schutz, Miss Teet
tel and H. B. Payne sang typical Irish
. In Immanuel Baptist church. Twenty
fourth and Blnney streets, also assembled
a good sized audience' for "An EveLlng in
Erin." The pastor, Rev. R. Kerr Eccles,
is himself a Scotch-Irishman and talked
entertainingly en "Teddy, Himself, His
Hopes and His Future." Mrs. O. "W.
Shields gave a history of the day; D. R.
Stambaugh sang "Loves Young Dream,"
and C. M. Eaton sang "Killarney."

Operations are becoming a fad; every
young man, as soon as he is graduated from
a medical college, considers himself capable
of undertaking the most serious and com
plicated surgical work, and hundreds of
Uvea are sacrificed annually to this mad
frenzy of Incompetent men, to rush Into
work which should only be undertaken as a
last resort, and then only by the most
experienced and careful surgeons.
It Is a plessure, In view of these facts, to
read the following letter from a woman who
has been saved from one of these dangerous
operations. "I know I should have informed
you long ego regarding my case of piles
and the good done me, and I believe I
am cured. LaBt December I sent for your

eleven years, and at the time I wrote I had
given birth to a child, and tbey came down
with the dellevery of the child by the hand

fered everything; and the doctor said noth
ing but an operation would ever relieve me,
but I read of your remedy In our dally
newsprper and I told my husband to get me
a box and I would give it a trial before con
senting to the knife, and thanks be to your
wonderful medicine, I was saved from the
"Every person suffering from piles that my
husband and myself hear of, we recom
mended your wonderful medicine. I Just used
one tl box of Pyramid Pile Cure, and two
boxes of Pyramid Ointment and two boxes
of Pyramid Pills, and I was, I hope com
pletely cured. If they ever show the
slightest return I will certainly get some
more medicine, but I hardly think I will

Pnblle Improvements Ordered and

Pay For Tsrssgk Pecu
From the ' condition of the city treas
urer's books It appears that money will
have to be borrowed April 1 to take up
certain grading obligations. Grading dis
trict No. B2, the alley between Twenty
fourth and Twenty-fifth streets, extend
ing from F to G etreets, was created by
ordinance on November II, 1902. This
grading has been completed at a cost of
.1,450. The first bond of 145 and interest
is due on April 1, and not a cent has been
paid in by the abutting property owners
towards paying the cost of this work. Quite
t number of the property owners who are
taxable for this . work are noa-rnldonts.
There was no difficulty about securing their
signatures for the improvement, but when
It comes to paying that seems to he a dif
ferent matter. City Treasurer Howe has
sent .put the customary noticrs, but has
not received a single reply. On this ac
count the city will be compelled to borrow
the money to take up tUe first boDd and
pay the Interest.
Two of the lots abutting on the im
provement made are awned in England.
The aame condition prevails In grading
district No. 42. This Is between N and O
streets on Twenty-second atreet. There
is an overdraft in this grading fund of
$800 and with Interest due April 1 it will
be necessary to borrow S950 to aquare mat
ters with the fiscal agency. One peculiar
feature of this transaction ia the fact that
Cash Bros., the grading contractors who
did the grading and received pay for the
work are now suing the city to get relief
from paying the grading tax on four lota
which they own. City Attorney Murdock
I will contest these Cash Bros, cases and
luu"-1 ie.e v.a.u
will also make an effort t
o secure payment
of the legitimate grading taxes In other
districts where the city claims a right to
assess, after the necessary petitions have
been signed and presented to the council.

Last nigh- William Queenap, council
man from the Sixth ward and William
Broderiek, councilman from the Fifth ward,

been advised by their attorneys to keep
out of the primaries to be held on Friday.
"We wiU not only keep out of the pri
maries," said Queenan. "but, following the
advice of our attorneys, we will keep out
of the convention. Our attorneys hold that
we mere elected for a term of two vears,
and we will pay no attention to the con
vention nominating councllmen to repre
sent the Fifth and Sixth wards."
This actio., on the part of Queenan and
Broderiek may make some difference In
the convention. It is understood that even
should the nominaticn be offered them at
convention It will be declined, the con
tention De.ng mat utuer cue prcaeni uar-
ter these two memliers are elected to serve
for a term of two years.
