Liberty Irish Patriots Just at present the amnesty demon stration held in the Rotunda fits in with peculiar significance Men of all sections in national politics came together to welcome back to liberty the Irish patriots that England attempted to de grade as criminals and common felons says the Dublin Saturday Herald Such J a meeting proves to the nations of Europe today that the difference between England and Ireland is an international I one and not a mere passing phase of I local unrest Who were the men that the citizens of Dublin met and honored t that night They were one and all treason felons sentenced in a time ofII panic because they strove to free their country by means outside the constitu J tion Naturally enough in England but I unnaturally with some people in Ireland it is the custom to look askance at the movement which has rescued many andjj will rescue the remainder of these menC from felons graves within English pris ons But that the public opinion of Ireland is solidly behind the movement hers self to blame in this matter as upon all others in which we strive to subvert herII interests These prisoners if they were really dynamitards as the English pressC and people pretend should have been J tried under the explosives act whjchII was rushed through the House of Com mons for the very purpose of dealing with such offenses Had the Govern prisonerseconvicted would long since have beenhh anarchistsoand others so tried and convicted Thus the whole matter would be a concluded incident as the French say and minis ters would have no further trouble In stead of acting in accordance with the i lawfspecially provided audmavitltnatural justice the Government of the dayI elected to try the prisoners as treason dame aging the constitutional movement ledI informerswas found The men were proved to beI Fenians and were sentenced as such that is as political founders Thus it is themeand that all libertyloving men espouse their cause CANDY

XIII The Answer May Be Found in It Strange and Almost Forgotten Book Contained a Motto For Every Sovereign Pontift From 1143 to the End THE MANY PROPHECIES OF MALACHY Will Gerolamo Maria Gotti be the next occupant of the chair of St Peter If not the wonderful prophecies of St Malachy the prophetpriest of Ireland will fail for the first time in history Eight centuries ago this Archbishop gifted with power to lift the veil of the future wrote of the successor of Leo XIII Signus ardensa burning torch By a strange chanceis it fate or merely a coincidencein the coatof arms of Cardinal Gotti is burning torch It is now known that the frail old man Leo XIII is passing away Who will be the successor is a question that is agi tating the world To answer it many have turned to that strange and almost forgotten book The Prophecy of Mala chy figuratively characterizing all the Popes from the writing of it to the end of the world They have found there the symbol for the new Pope It is a lighted torchEight centuries ago Malachy OMor gair Archbishop of Armagh Ireland wrote this Papal chain He was a mod est man a pious man and he became the prophetsaint of the Emerald Isle When he died in 1148 it was found that he had left behind a wonderful book it was called The Chronicles of Malachy and it contained a motto for every sovereign Pontiff from 1143 to the end of the Papacy And every Pope from that time has corresponded to the prophecy of the Irish seer At first but little was thought of time motives of the good Saint Malachy It was not until several centuries after the Archbishops death that they were pub Jnedictineii i l translated into many languagesand have come to be valued as sibylline books Celestine II was the first Pope under the prophecy Ex castro Tibris From a castle of Tiber the motto reads Celes tine was a Tuscan by birth a native of Fort Saint Felicitis near the Tiber Many years later Adrian IV the only Englishman who has ever worn the triple crown of St Peter succeeded Anastasius IV Again the prophecy came true It read De sure aIbailOf the Alban white country Adrian was not only from the white cliffs of Albion but he had been Bishop of Alba and Legate to Norway the land of snowThere are 111 of these remarkable prophecies Each has been similarly verifiedOf latterday Pontiffs St Malachy says of the 100th Pope after Celestine Crux de CruceTimis cross comes from the cross of Savoy This was Pius IX Like the famed oracle of Delphi the meaning of Malachy terse Latin mottoes was sometimes misunderstood But there always came a day when all was made plain and the spirit of prophecy was vindicated After the Pope who is spokenof as- a torch Saint Malachy mentions eight more Pontiffs That said the prophet will be the end of the roll of Popes for then the earth too will pass away He adds one last prophetic vision At the time of the final persecution against the Holy Roman church th Pbntificial throne will be occupied by Peter a Roman second of that name He will feed his flocks amid tribulations When they shall perish the Seven hilled city will be destroyed and tIle terrible Judge will judge his people There are many learned prelates who wouldwillingly rule the Papal See and would fain forget the prophecies of Malachy No earthly monarch has such loyal subjects as this Roman pontiff no king wields so great a power In outward magnificence his entourage is not what it was but in the impressive logic of fact the spiritual monarchy which humbled Bismarck does not yield to the proudest throne Not the Czar himself has so many subjects Princes sue to hint for pardon the proudest in the land kneel humbly at his feet Some PopesI have maintained state and ceremony befitting a mighty king Leo XIII has lived the life of a holy ascetic an d StoMalachy wrote of him Lumens i- ncaelolight in heaven In every truth his holy life his good deeds and his wise and kindly rule shine out like a beacon in the religious world Still the motto would have fitted others Several names have already been men tioned for the chair that will soon be vacantThere is Cardinal if ampolla the learned diplomat and the Uncompromising foe ofI ithe Italian Government and Cardinal 1 Angelo di Pietro the pious beloved old man from Environs called already the Saint by his people Either is worthy to be a Popethey say in Rome- Thereia another his name is Gerolamo Maria Gotti and iin Ids coat of arms can be seen a burning torch Will the prophecy of the Irish seer be fulfilled Will Cardinal Gotti lay aside his mitre that the triple crown may be placed upon his brow Or i will the nineteenth century laugh at thh predictions of the Irish saint and break the chain of his predictions Will tile torch be quenched There are those wlto say it will bring dire disaster to the holy See if the proph forgottenIn ceremon ials of papal coronation there is a simple act performed An attendant of the pa pal chapel brings in a handful of flax on a gilded rod the Waster of ceremonies burns this flax in time presence of the Supreme Pontiff f1 saying solemnly Holy Father thus passes away the glory of the world Will the torch of Gotti go out as the bit of flax Or will it be a light to illumine the world when he sits upon the throne of St Peter That Cardinal Gotti is fitted to be the head of the church tno one doubts His life has been a simple one full of self sacrifice and unceasing labor The son of a Genoese longshoreman he was brought up an poverty and was familiar from his thildhood with theM sorrows of the poor For many years he was a brother of fthe Carmelite order passing his time impedance and pray ers At last he became its General the highest honor of the order The Pope finally appointed him Apostolic Nuncio to Brazil and then Cardinal not because he was a brilliant man or a wonderful leader or even a great organizer but because he was hojy man It is said that of all the prelates Gotti is most be loved by Leo His gentle soul his pure life have endeared him to the Holy FathertLeo XIII is a finetheologian absolute in his faith magnetic in his personality and the wisest of diplomats but he sees in the son of the Genoese longshoreman the nobility of soul ithat makes a man a power among his fellowmen Gotti is a learned plan and an upright man but he has neither the wonderful intellect nor the fascinating personality of Leo XIII It hums been said of him that he would not tnake a great Pope but a goodone Leo XIII has read the prophecies of St Malachy He knows that the motto of the next Pope isiThe burning torch Perhaps it is for that reason he has been heard to allude to Cardinal Gotti as my successorc 0 RECENT DEATHS Michael White digat time hone of his- daugiiter Mrs lllYill at 314 East

Riordan The Insurgents Are More Treacherous Than the Spanish Enemy Dirty and Lazy Their Utter Worthlessness Renders Them Unfit to Become Citizens- of the United States THE BOYS THAT DID THE FIGHTING Whether the Government should or should not annex the Philippine islands is a question upon which many of our oldest and ablest statesmen and writers disagree That they contain many who would not realize or appreciate the benefits or responsibilities of citizenship there is no denying The following Jetter Mr Timothy J Riordan atItlstsness It was written to Mr John Dolan under date of October 5 and was received here Sunday being one month inI transmission Mr Riordan had a very lively time at Cavite and from his ex perience at Manila it would seem that soldiering in the Philippines is not as pleasant as many imagine He has many friends in this city who will be delighted to hear from him through these columns From his interesting letterl we extract the I received a letter from you today dated eight days after the battle and surrender of Manila I tell you I felt good and happy for I have received only three letters from Louisville since I got here I wrote to you and Mr Tandy from Cavite From there I sent Tandy some relics I got from Spanish prisoners whom the insurgents had One thing I did not tell you was the number of prison ers we had We have about 14000 inside the walled city Uncle Sam is feeding them and they get but two hours out in the morning and two in the afternoon There are drawbridges to this city and we have guards at them all so they cannot get out You can bet your life I have seen service enbugh by this time but it is not the fighting or the few hardships we have to go though that have made me see service enough It is the doggedness and tyrrany ofour officers for whom I guess the papers in America are singing hymns of praise If the men in this army could only have their way the papers in America would sing hymns somewhat sounddand came through the thick of the battle with another Louisville boy as a partner singing our Old Kentucky Home It was like going to a picnic but it was a little too hot Talk about your balls at Louisville we had a succession of balls on August 13 we had steel balls and lead balls and brass balls while the band con oldhtown there was for us We were wet dirty and tired and sleepy and hungry too for the hardtack we put in our knapsacks got all wet from the heavy bate tIe The evening we captured the city I went on guard at about 430 oclock or somewhere near that hour and I tell you when I got off next evening I did trot need a bed to sleep onIlaid right down on the stones and slept the sleep of the morningIfor a we about 150 men for guards not to mind what other regiments would send out top The guard has fallen down to six in my i t company it used to be fifteen and twenty So you see we did not have a picnic Some might think it was a great thing to be guarding the city of Manila I dont think it was anything at all All we were afraid of was the insurgents corning into the city but they heeded good advice and kept out of sight Those we caught on the streets with arms were disarmed They are worse than the Spaniards I have no use for them at all they are too lazy to do any good for themselves Its 4 burning hot hereso hot that we runaround in our underwear in the barrack yard but when we go on guard we have to wear while gloves blue shirts white pants and a pair of leggins which should not be allowed for it is just the same as standing in a furnace with so much clothes on We drill in the morning from 7 to 8 and we are not allowed out between the hours of 11 a m and 3 p m They say it is too warm but it is not too hot to work or drill This is the un healthiest time of the year here There are GOO in the hospital and those admitted every day average from ten to twenty and the death roll averages from three to six every day I was on guard at the hos pital yesterday and two funerals passed me in one hour some poor soldier boys who fought bullets and shrapnelshell but could not fight some dread sickness We also have about ten cases of smallpox here I was reading a paper here from Frisco where it said the California boys led the fighting on the night of LOUISVILLES CONGRESSMAN fromI followingDear August 2 but it never mentioned the Nebraska boys or the Eighteenth They were the boys that did the fighting that i lastiSpanI Callformadouble time If you read the papers you will find that there were more of the Nebraska volunteers hurt or killed than any other outfit in the trenches The reason why was they had fighting metal in them and they jumped oti top of the breast works to follow the Spaniards when three or four of their comrades were getmthem back in the trenches So that is how they were killed If you walked over the same ground that we fought the battle on you could not tell that there was one fought there The rice fields have grown up and the trenches are al most level with the ground with a thick growth of grass over them The only thing that remains to tell of it at all is the old fort There is a hole through and through it large enough to admit a box car to pass One of Deweys shells struck it and killed and wounded from twenty five to fortyfive Spaniards Another sign remains in the cutup condition of the trees all around They are cut andrid dled by Mauser bullets and shrapnel shells which burst all around us and I tell you when we look at them and think of what we have gone through we have to laugh at ourselves and say we did no think it was so fierce but when you go right out and look at all these things then is when you come to find out what it was you went through John I had ray picture taken about two weeks ago I mailed three of them to youone for Jimmie one for yourself and one for Tandy The background of the picture shows the beach where that tough fight was on August 2 I dont know how you will like them but I send them any way and I want you to keep them in memory of the battle of Manila and your true friend About October 8 or 10 I will put in my application for discharge and I expect to be in Louisville for Christmas or sooner and then I can tell you a little more than I would like to mention in this letter for it seems to rime that the letters we write here are not delivered in the States Let me know in the next let ter you write me if you got the letter about the battle It was written on August 10 or 18 or it may have been on the I4th but I wrote one from Cavite and some relics I sent to Tandy Let me know if they have arrived and also tell Jim Ratigan I have a few relics he can place in his smtlooua Spanish pistol an artillery swordsome Mauser bullets some CONTINUED ON THIRD PAGE I nOME AGAIN r Louisville

a t LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY NOV 12 1898 ELECTION RESULTS The election is over and a tamer more peaceful surprising election never occurred in this city There was evidently no interest no excite ment and yet it was clear that in no election was there more auxiety and earnest quiet effort by the friends of all candidates Twenty thousand voters failed to vote in this city and all efforts on the part of the politicians to arouse them from indifference were futile yet but for the hustling of the work ers who did inject a little life into the School Trustee races a much smaller vote would have been cast In no election were there so many combination and deals suspicions and distrusts unexpected results and disappointments from which are likely to spring in the future much to worry and discount the plans of the politicians on all sides Crimination and recrimination fac tional and personal strife are in store for all in future campaigns as a result of the methods resorted to and the 20000 nonvoters will be the uncertain quantity and bone of contentionAnd the result there seemed really no enthusiasm not a cheer greeted the display of returns at any of the headquarters or news paper offices Perhaps the close vote and uncertainty as to the final result on full returns may account for the lack of enthusiasm but it was remarkable at alt places and of allpartiesWith result we are satisfied every candidate supported by the Kentucky Irish American being elected The success of every Democratic candidate for School Trustee removes from the School Board an element of contention and insures peace and order in that body and the furtherance of the educational interests as its only ob ject for the next year Although on the surface it may appear different the result of the campaign in this city relegates as a factor in elections or at least reduces to an ineffective minimum the element of bigotry and nationality fraught with so much of bit terness and rant- ENGLANDS BLUSTER In a former issue we intimated that there would be no immediate hostilities between Englandand France over the Fashoda matter and the following excerpt from an editorial in the Dublin Independent only serves to confirm our position Notwithstanding all the firm talk of Sir Michael Hicks Beach and the swaggering of the jingo journals England dreads war and she has more reason to do so than France or any other nation in the world The reason is obvious Not only is her empire more scat tered than any other but she is absolutely dependent at home on supplies from abroad She has a powerful navy of course but she will require every ship she possesses to keep the ocean free for the im port of foodstuffs from abroad the stoppage of which for even one month would bring about some thing like a famine among the millions of her working population 4 The mere prospect of danger to merchandise on the high seas would in all probability stop the outflow of corn from America a result which would be more fatal to her than the destruction of her fleet r would be to France The French on the other hand might have every one of her ports blockaded auto Still be able to feed themselves out off the produce of their country In other words the superiority of lr 1 r the British fleet to the French is completely neutralized by the vital factor in the problem that England lives on the rest of the worldand that France does not All this of course is perfectly well known to English Ministers but they think that the present is an opportune moment for a display of pretended t courage and readiness for war andI they have been encouraged to thinkI so by the fact that in recent years France has twice submitted to their pretensions in Africa It is how ever a dangerous game It may be played once too often The foregoing contains much that has been overlooked by many of our AngloAmerican alliance writers and when they give the matter the proper thought they will learn that Englands alleged friendship con sists of nothing but pure selfishness By following in the path of our forefathers we have become the greatest and most liberal nation in the world Let us not leave that path at the suggestion of any for eign power much less that of the one which tried to destroy us in 1776 and 1812 and was the ally of the foes of the United States Gov ernment in the war of the rebellion COERCION REVIVED Lord Cadogan and Mr Gerald Balfour have made a capital blun der in the West of Ireland says an able writer in the Catholic Sun in commenting on the recent edict prohibiting meetings of the United Irish League in portions of Ireland Fiom the point of view of a Union ist administration their proclama tion of a public meeting and the batoning of Nationalists by their police underlings is like a plunge into Niagara The United Irish League has secured an advertise ment a hundred times more valua ble than a hundred speeches by the coercion proceedings of a week ago Sunday We wonder if the Dublin Castle authorities will go one step further in their foolish fanaticism and prosecute Messrs Davitt OBrien and Haviland Burke bag ging anti Parnellite and Parnellite in the common net of a Crown prosecution According to the word ing of the proclamation which warned all and sundry against participating in aiding or abetting the meeting nothing remains for the Government but to bring the afore said gentlemen before a star cham ber court of removables and rele gate them to six months durance vile in Galway prison You can not pass the meeting is proclaimed were the words that were dinned into the ears of the organizers of the gathering which was convened in an orderly way and to discuss a question of legitimate public im portance The dispatches give an idea of how the interference by Dublin Castle with the right of openair meetings was enforced by the satraps In the main street of Ballinrobe an old man had his head smashed by the blow of a baton Others received treatment which would not be tolerated for a mo ment in England A large tract of country was dragooned Hundreds of extra police were imported into Mayo For what purpose Be cause forsooth a meeting of peas antry addressed by responsible pub lic men was in the opinion of the Dublin Castle despots calcu lated to cause alarm and terror To whom To the rent robbers of the West of Ireland To no one else There was no more danger of terror and alarm being caused in Mayo by the speeches of Messrs Davitt and OBrien than of South Down being flung into a vortex bq N t 1r Y IIil 1 7SCY Y IIISH AMElIC Al the speech of Loid Cadogan at Ballyroney in which he took pleas ure in the reflection comforting to a Unionist Viceroy that a feeling of contentment and of loyalty iis being more widened among th people of this country Does his Excellency believe that the sup pression of free speech the break ing up of meetings and police baton charges will accelerate the growth of that contentment and loyalty which at Ballyroney he seemed to attribute to the conduct of her Majestys Government and their administration of Ireland Mr OBrien asked in Mayo whether the Government means to knock on the head their policy for the Englishl constituencies of killing Home Rule by kindness or whether they are going to hark back on the old system of killing Home Rule with the bludgeon and the bayonet His Excellency

plague lurks perpetually in certain interior cities of Asia Occasionally it appears in the great ports and creates a panic In 1894 it broke out in severe form in Hong Kong and as the black death it ha

and that a it grows older they become hard andI brittle The heart the lungs the whole interior organism gradually absorbs the lime in foodsatid we become ossified and1 are easily cracked or fractured This iis the condition approaching old age There fore the thing to doin order to preserve our youth is to avoid the food and drink that will bones andossify our organs His rule is that we eat an

latter wrote Lucifer thirteen years before Paradise Lost was put forth Leonard C Van Nopen has translated the work of Vondel and the startling discovery follows that not only many words and phrases are em ployed by Milton in his masterpiece but the whole plot is borrowed from VondelsI Lucifer Even the famous line Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven is but a paraphrase of the Dutch

Vondels Lucifer Each is impressed with the beauty of Eve and iis wounded by Michael the grand marshal of heavens hosts and is hurled to eternal doom where each becomes a horrible e dragon In both

I METHODS OF OUR GRANDMOTHER We were recently shown through the roasting department of the new tea and coffee establishment of Mr John M Mul loy at 545 Pourth avenue by that gentle man and had explained to us man points of interest in the science or art of preparing the delicious berry that hall never entered our cranium Mr Mulloy is the successor to Mullo Bros who embarked in the busines many years ago and for a long time were located at 1028 West Market street where they made many friends an patrons but recently on account of in creasing business moved their plant to 545 Fourth avenue at the same time adding to it the latest and most improves methods known to the experts for clean big coffees of rocks dirt etc In dis cussing the various changes and inven lions introduced in the business he said Why sir my fourteen years expe rience in this business tells me there are thousands of the very best people in tbls city who have been using coffee all tbeir lives who do not know what good coffee means which is due to a lack ot know ledge of the importance of roasting more than anyeater one cause Of course coffee should be selected from good oh cropstock to insure the best results bu there is as vast a difference between tbe oldtime parch of our grandmothers ant our roast of today as there is between the needle and the sewing machine Yet some of the socalled roasters of the pres ent day have not advanced many steps farther than our grandmothers except incapacity and quantity parched or ruined Our cylinder as you see is enclosed in masonry run by electricity and heated by natural gas which gives a uniforn heat We consume from thirty to fort minutes in roasting which results in giv ing every grain placed in the cylinder ra smooth even mahogany brown througl and through and not parched or burned off the outside and raw near the center The flavor strength and aroma are thus preserved and the consumer gets the ben efit of itinstead of its being allowed to diffuse itself throughout the entire neigh borhood Now we keep our stock in the green and roast every day for the next days delivery so as to give it to the custbmei fresh You can keep green coffee for years and it will improve with age like wines and liquors but when you roast il you open the pores and the strength and aroma begin to escape and if it goes tc the grocery and sits around in tubs cans i and other vessels it noon loses the greater part of its value and becomes tough and hard to grind The package coffees are notable for this fault and often have tc he placed in the store to dry out before they can be ground The package cof fees too are more or less glazed or filled with substances often foreign to it and while they add to its weight ought to be classed as impure food Yet many people go on from year to year using these glazed coffees without stopping to con sider tha they would not suffer any other article of fowl they use to come into the house if it was covered with the same stuff with which glazed coffees are cov ered or coated Our coffee is only allowed to cool sufficiently after coming out of the roaster to prevent its sweating It is then put up in one two and threepound airtightt cans and delivered directly to the con sumer with the understanding that if itt does not give satisfaction we will refund1 the money paid for it As it has become customary of late years to give premiums and prizes with purchases Mr Mulloy is also strictly up in this line as he has a varied and handsome stock of chinaware vases lamps statuary mould pieces ornaments etc bricabrac to suit the most fastidious- A visit to this enterprising house and1 a cup of delicious coffee served gratu itously by Miss Nellie Mulloy will put one in the most amiable frame of mind toward all

Jurisdietloi Extended Over the Fcelgeral Union Acted With Benjamin l lnllhlira as Representative in Canada TODAY WITH DIVINE ENERGY On November 0 1708 His Holiness Pius VI issued a bull creating the bier of the Catholic church in the United States and appointed the Rev John Carroll the first Bishop of Ball more whose episcopal jurisdiction extended over all the territory then com in the Federal Union He was consecrated in the chapel of Lulwortl Castle in England by the venerable Bishop Walmesley vicar apostolic of the London district on August 15 1790 and soon afterward set out for Baltimore where he arrived on December 7 After occupying this see for a quarto of a century he died full of years and merits December 1 1815 in the eighty year of his age The history of Archbishop Carrolls administration clearly shows that his appointment was not only wise and judicious but an especially providential one Gifted byI nature with talents of a high order In improved and developed those talents byl long course of study in one of the best colleges in Europe and even among the brilliant scholars of St Omers he won high reputation for learning Archbishop Carroll was a son of devoted Irish Catholic parents and inherited the 2 deep faith of his ancestors Destined le hold so conspicuous a place as leader of American church he was born intt Maryland in 1735 At the age of fifteen he was sent to the Jesuit College of StII Omers in French Flanders where heJJ met people of various nationalities who helped to enlarge and catholicize his S mind without weakening his patriotism Here he studied under the admirable system of the Jesuit fathers and finally I became a member of their society Subsequent he was professor of philosophy and theology in their scholasticate and thus enjoyed the advantages of a thoroughly Jesuit system of education andi religious training The suppression of the Society of Jes nits in 1773 left Father Carroll a secular priest and free to return to his nativeI country The suppression caused himI the most intense grief He bowed however with resignation to the inscrutable degree of Providence lIe wen knew thatt no individual and no society is essentialI to the churchs existence that her divine life will be perpetuated no matter PopeIyear death of Archbishop Carroll reestab lished it It was the supreme dying consolation of the American prelate For several years previous to Dr Car Irons appointment as Bishop of Bait more the question was discussed of such an appointment to some American city In 1750 Bishop Challoner then Vicar Apostolic of the London district proposed Philadelphia as the most suitable place because of the freedom enjoyed by Catholics in Pennsylvania under the in fluence of the gentle spirit and laws of William Penn and his followers But it must be admitted that Maryland had still strong claims because of the great number of Catholics there because of her Catholic founder and his noble stand for religious freedom At the age of forty Dr Carroll returned to his native country Por fifteen years he occupied positions of trust and was appointed First Bishop of Baltimore and head of the Catholic church in the United States In compliance with a promise made to an English gentleman Mr Weld of Lulworth Castle he was consecrated in his domes tic chapel by Bishop Waluiesley Vicar postolic of the London district the book the Gospel being held over his shoulder by the son of his friend afterward he distinguished Cardinal Weld In a private letter to Dr Troy Archbishopof Dublin Dr Carroll wrote that if it vere not for this request and promise he would have preferred the consecration have taken place in America or in Ire and the laud of his Catholic forefathI ers His consecration took place on the 15th of August 1790 the Feast of the Asi iumplion of the Blessed Virgin under whose patronage he placed the church of these States Bishop Carroll was an American patriot as well as a Christian 3ishop Love of country and of race Isa feeling planted by God in the human teart and when properly directed be owes a natural virtue Bishop Carrolls patriotism never conflicted with his re igion for he always acted for God from ai sense of duty whether preaching they ospel in Baltimore or with his friend Benjamin Franklin acting as representa ive of the Colonial Government in his mission to Quebec The jurisdiction of the new BLhop ex ended over the entire country but oon found it impossible because of they ncrease of Catholics and the great dis ance of the places and difficulties off ravel as well as his advanced age falthfully guard so scattered a flock The iishops who in 1810 were appointed to aid him in his great work were apostolic den animated by his own spirit like plendid Bishop Flagetof Bardstown Jgah of Philadelphia and Clieverus of Boston When Bishop Carroll was consecrated in 17QOthe entite population of the United 4 j ii States was a little less than 4000000 und the Catholic population was estimated at about 40000 thirty priests ad ministering to this scattered flock Then was not a single asylum throughout the land The churches were only the fev modest houses of worship erected in Catholic settlements chiefly in Marylanc and Pennsylvania Georgetown College just then founded was the only Catholic seat of learning in the country Glance the present The

Democracy Scores a Great Victory in the Race for the School nonrelI Join NV Galvin Left Robert t Frick at the Post mind It AVon with Ease t ORDERLY AND QUIET ELECTIONItIt The election is over and Turner will represent the trict in the next House of Representa tives His majority while small is safe and we do not think Mr Evans will be so foolish as to contest Mr Turners right to the seat The election ivies a remarkably quiet one and time result was in doub until the last ballot was cast There was no excitement whatever and no arrest or complaints were made at any of the precinctsMany were surprised at the different in the vote cast for the tread of the ticke and those who were candidates for School Trustee This may be explained by stat ing that in a number of Democratic wards certain element of the Democratic party scratched the name of Mr Turner but their loss was offset by the number of Republicans in other wards who refuses to support either Evans or Hambrick There were at least 10000 registered voters who did not go to the polls and this leaves the question of actual party strength still in doubt The Kentucky Irish American exult in time fact that Louisville will now b free from time control of time Republican factions which have been seeking power without eitherprinciple or ability to commend them That it did its share to bring about this result is to its credit but it will not like some of the larger papers claim that the glory of time entire victory belongs to it alone We hope the Re publican party in this city will be re formed and the good men therein assumeI control This is not a city in which in terlopers of any party with be tolerated Mr Turners future success will depend on his conduct in Congress lie I was the choice of time liberal and fair minded citizens of this district and cat do much to dispel die petty feelings and animosities that have developed during the closing days of the campaign and thereby solidly reunite time Democratic party He made a gallant race agains great odds and merits the fruits of his victory The race for School Trustee in the seven districts resulted in a decisive Democratic victory Every Democratic candidate was elected and bya majority that leaves no room for doubt The fog lowing gentlemen were elected First DistrictAlbert A Stall Second District John Hoertz Third DistrictSamuellJorningstar- Fourth District Emory G Johnson Fifth District John W Galvin Sixth District F J Hummel Seventh DistrictA II Brachy In the Fifth district Druggist Frick was easily defeated by Dr John W Gal vin who received a surprisingly large majority His friends were jubilant over the result F J Hummel won in the Tenth ward and he owes much to Councilman John J Keane for his success Mr Keane done a great deal to keep down the Republican majority in that ward Mr Turner who is enjoying a fewr days rest in Ballard county said to a re porter before leaving the city- I am proud of the honor conferred upon me by the Democrats It was certainly a great victory I am thankful tall o Democrats and Republicans who voted for me Ihave no illfeeling for those who voted against me When I go to Congress I will try to represent the Fifth Kentupky district to the best of moy abilityThe daily papers have suggested that a ratificaiion meeting be held but there is little likelihood of any further step being taken in the matter We congrat ulate the successful candidates on their victory and believe they will fill accept ably the various offices to which they have been elected LONG LIFE ENDED Death of Mrs Nancy
