Last Monday evening the Aquinas Union entertained its members and the ladies and gentlemen who participated in the late entertainment at the Union's rooms on Sixth street. In the absence of President Richard Edelen, Vice President John Bell called the guests to their places at the banquet table, groaning under the weight of all the delicacies of the season. Mr. John Crotty, who officiated as toastmaster, opened the festivities with a fine address, thanking the members of the dramatic club for their labors in behalf of the Aquinas Union, during which he presented the director, Mr. Henry W. Newman, with a beautiful pair oi diamond stud cult buttons as a testimonial of the appreciation of his services. Mr. Newman was so deeply moved that he was only able to express his sincere thanks to the society for iU kindness. to Toasts were responded and impromptu speeches made by Messrs. Eugene Cooney, M. D. Fitzgibbons, Will Richard Hendricks. Walsh, Harry Crotty, Thomas Casey, Michael Walsh, Thomas Muldoon, L. Durrett and Frank Among the ladies G. Cunningham. responding were Misses Lillian Curley, A.

After the reading of the minutes and various communications a resolution was adopted that the members of the division all receive holy communion on Sunday morning, December 24. The first pleasant surprise was the announcement that there were no bills nor sick claims pending against the division, and Chairman James Russell reported that the special committee arranging for an entertainment in the near future were making good progress with hopes of pre paring a programme that would surpass anything heretofore presented in Southern Indiana. The date and details will be announced at the meeting to be held in January. A communication from Patrick Ford, of New York, soliciting contributions for the United. Irish League fund was re at ived mmt fried. te i i bringing these fine qualities to bear on any movement for the forwarding of the national cause. He was a sturdy fighter for his political principles and took a leading part in the campaign in connec tion with New Tipperary. In a practical way he gave his garand den as portion of the site for New Tipperary and of course financially he lost heavily over the scheme. He was always constant and unwavering follower of Charles Stewart Parnell. At the time of the betrayal he was one of the first to declare his continued support of the great Irish leader, and he never once lost faith in the principles of Parnell. Whenever Parnell was anywhere in the neighbor hood of the town, or even of the County of Tipperary, Hurley never failed to meet and heartily welcome the chief. And never since Parnell's death was he absent from any of the great demonstra tions in perpetuation of his memory. The 'death of Mr., Hurley, iwhick 4kee Bach succeeding day brings to light additional evidence that the war now being prosecuted by England against the Boers is an unholy one and instituted, as Michael Davitt said, only for murder and plunder. Englishmen are now beginning to see Chamberlain in his true character, and the correspondent of the New York World thus pictures the situation as it now exists in London, which will prove depressing reading to our Anglo-Saxo- n maniacs: Public sentiment on the war is undergoing a marked change. The gravity of the situation in South Africa is now recognized. The struggle is expected to be protracted, and its outcome even doubtful. This does not weaken the resolve to see it through, but alters the aspect in which the Ministers responsible for the war are viewed. Yesterday there was a Cabinet meeting, but cheering crowds were absent and the assembling Ministers were watched only by a few press men. The West End is unusually crowded with society people, but depression reigns supreme. Last night the dining room at the Carlton was crowded with fashionable women, beautifully dressed, but instead of merry peals of laughter and the customary gay chatter prevailing the silence at times was almost funereal. At tbe outset the war got into the heads of the people; now it has reached their hearts. Colonial Secretary Joseph Chamberlain has been dethroned. His reception by his colleagues at yesterday's Cabinet meeting was remarkably cool. Chancel-- . lor'of 'tk KJtckerSeiel is saM tojhawe Last Monday night the Catholic Club of this city held its annual banquet at the Louisville Hotel, and the feast was pronounced the most enjoyable in the society's history. For some years past it has been the custom of the club to banquet its members and friends, and upon this occasion oratory flowed and good fellowship prevailed to the fullest possible extent. The members and guests gathered around the festal board made song and merry with speech-makinstory until midnight. The company embraced many of Louisville's best citizens and the oratory was of the highest order and patriotic throughout. Dr. J. W. Fowler, the retiring President, officiated as toastmaster, responding to "Our Coantry." His address, while not long, was well received and elicited much applause. Rev. Father Charles P. Raffo had as his theme "The Catholic Church," a subject for which he is particularly suited. His remarks were very impressive and related to the many good works of the church iu this country and the bright future before it. The reverend gentleman maintained his fame and added new laurels to his reputation as an orator. "The Catholic Club and Its Work" was the toast responded to by Hon. Edward J. McDermott, who paid a glowing tribute to the club and its past officers, pledging his best efforts to its future success. lie was at his best and perhaps the most pleasing address SPARRING CONTESTS. fMuBlc-HairTliufsday?- " While the Angelus was ringing last Sunday evening the soul of Rev. Father Ernest Audran, the beloved pioneer priest of Southern Indiana, took its flight heavenward, and the venerable prelate was relieved from his earthly sufferings, after an illness of several months' duration, and although the end had been anticipated for some days previous the announcement cast a feeling of gloom in every home in the city of Jeffersonville. where he officiated as pastor of St. Augustine's church for the past thirty-on- e years. Father Audran was one of the best known priests in this section of the country, having lived in Southern Indi ana since be came from France a youth over sixty years ago. He studied for the priesthood and was ordained by special dispensation in 1846 by Bishop Halian-dier- e, his uncle, when only twenty-tw- o years old, being the youngest clergyman in the diocese. For nearly twenty-thre- e years Father Audran was rector of the Cathedral at Vincennes, then the most important church in the diocese, writes Edward Fitzpatrick. He was familiar with the early history of the settlement of the Northwest Territory and aided several historians in searching the old records iu the Cathedral, some of them going back long before Indiana was or ganized as a State or even a Territor When he first began his labors on sick calls frequently on hor far us Peona, 111., and the I not left the reservations in No diana. Indianapolis was a .village,;, aad '..Vincennes was Ih'I&SS 'Father Audran was ordered br his Bishop to go to Tefiersonville, which was then poorlp supplied with Catholic clergymen. There were no parochial schools connected with the congregation, and the church itself consisted of four bare brick walls. Father Audran was given a residence by his bishop, but he moved out of it to allow it to be used as a school. Since 1868 he had made vast improvements, building up his church and school, and although two floods caused much distress among his parishioners he was able to accomplish much. The funeral services were held Wed nesday morning at St. Augustine's church, which was incapable of holding the immense throngs that came to pay their tnbute of respect to the memory of the clegyman. Solemn requiem mass was cebrated by Monsignor Bessonies, of the diocese, with Rev. Edward Clark, for nearly a year Father Audran's assistant, as deacon, and Father Donohue, of Indianapolis, but formerly of Jeffersonville, and a great favorite of the deceased, as Monsignor Bessonies, the celebrant of years old. and the mass, is eighty-on- e was the first resident priest in Jeffersonville. The services were the most solemn and impressive of the Catholic church, and within the chancel were about fifty priests, many being from Louisville and Kentucky. Coadjutor Bishop O'Donoghue, of Indianapolis, delivered a touching funeral sermon, in which he dwelt feelingly on the life and duties of a Citholic priest, and said that he was the guardian of the morals and religion of his parishioners. He was necessarily put through a severe training to prepare for the duties he would be called upon to perform. The Vocation of a priest is different from that of other professional men. Their failure means injury only to themselves, but the priest can not afford to lose a single case, for the loss is irreparable, and a soul dead in sin can not be recalled to spiritual life. Bishop O'Donoghue also said that the best eulogy of the deceased priest ' was the work he had accomplished. At the conclusion of the services in the church the casket containing the remains was placed in the hearse, and preceeded by the Ancient Order of Hibernians, Catholic Knights of America and Roman Knights of St. George, and followed by a long line of hacks containing the visiting clergy, parishioners and citizens, the funeral cortege proceeded to St. Augustine's cemetery, where the remains of Father Audran were consigned to mother earth. Each of the clergy threw a handful of earth into the grave, aud then tbe litany for the dead was chanted. The hoiiory were Maurice Coll, William McAuiiffe, Augustus Dnble, Thomas Donohue, Pierce Cowman, Junes W. Sweeney. Those who officiated actively were John B. Murphy, Dennis O'Hearn, James B.

It was decided that from now on the membership committee should meet at the hall every Tuesday evening, where those having applications will report, in order that all my be initiated at the next regular meeting. A special meeting of the division will take place Thursday evening, January 11, to further the work, and all are urged to be present. The work being done by this division breaks the record, at least in this section of the country, and the officers and members are certainly deserving of the greatest President Walsh allotted each praise. member a share of the work for the next month, which was distributed in a most satisfactory manner. Among the visitors were Messrs. John Thornton, of Edwardsville; President Will Reilly, of Jeffersonville, and Secretary John Cavanaugh, of Division 3, this cltv. all of whom congratulated their New Albany brethren on the great revival in progress and extended invitations to visit their respective divisions. Before adjourning it was decided to visit Division 1 of this city Tuesday even ing. Much regret was expressed at the absence of Secretary Flynn, who was oat of the city.

MACK1N COUNCIL ECHOES. DASTARDLY OUTRAGE. Miss Rose Hayden Assaulted and Robbed While Going Home. One of the most dastardly outrages committed in this city for a long time was perpetrated last Wednesday night upon Miss Rose Hayden and her mother while they were on their way home from A meeting of the Catholic Knights and Ladies of America. This is only one of the many assaults and robberies that have happened in this city, and all because of the lack of enough policemen. The beats assigned patrolmen outside the business portion of the city are altogether too large, and until more men are appointed tbe unsuspecting and defenseless will be at the mercy of be footpad. The ladies had reached Nineteenth and .Magazine streets, when u masked man sprang out from the shadow and dashed the contents of a bottle of ammonia in the elder woman's face, who fell to the ground almost insensible from pain. Then quick as flash he grappled Miss Rosa, covering her with a revolver. Though she was no match her assailant she fought pluckily, but the culprit threw her to the ground and wrested her pockebook from her, quickly disappearing in the darkness. Had the robbery occurred a few minutes later the culprit might have been apprehended, as Mike Doerhoefer came along and gave chase, but was too late. He assisted the ladies to their home on Nineteenth street, near Chestnut. The police were notified and a description given of the robber, who has not yet been apprehended. Mrs. Hayden was prostrated from the fright and for a time her condition was regarded as serious, but at last accounts she was out of danger. That the robbery was ptemeditated no one doubts, and all hope the guilty one may yet be caught. Miss Hayden is a highly esteemed young lady and her friends regret exceedingly the misfortune that has befallen her, HENRY HEWITT'S BERTH.

It must be remembered that these men knew nothing of fear. The bravest and hardiest of a strong, courageous tribe of people, they advanced before every charge made by the English only to fall as grass before the scythe. After the fall of Omdurman at least 200 of these brave dead soldiers were stolen from the battlefield and taken to London. They ore the finest specimens on the European markets because their owners were fine, athletic men in full vigor and in the prime war of life. After the Franco-Prussia- n there were for a time many skeletons of dead French soldiers offered for sale. These skeletons were whiter than those of Englishmen, and obtained a readier sale. For years afterward yellowish skeletons could only be sold at lower prices.

The festive and gladsome Christ- inas season will soon be with us, and the hustle and bustle and unwonted preparations on every hand are evidence that there is to be no lack of joyousness in its celebration. Of all the seasons and festivals of the year this is the most beautiful, and it is so essentially a holiday time for children. As it is the birth of a little child we commemorate, so it is to the little ones that our hearts first turn in thinking of this festal day. Our minds are carried back thousands of years ago, to what the poet so beautifully describes: the night Wherein the Prince of Light His reign of peace upon the earth began." In imagination we can see the stable and the poor surroundings of the Infant, and shudderingly we think of our own near and dear tots, and as if to make in some manner a sort of reparation for the inhospitality of that rude period we shower upon them all that we possibly can think of to make, them happy and devise ways and means to "But peaceful was John Sweeney, who has been confined was to his home on Zane street for the past three weeks with a dislocated shoulder, caused by a street car accident, is reportT.

Fancy Mirrors, Etc. Order Picture Frames early and avoid the ruali mt make them remember this holy season. The commemoration of December 25 has come down to us from ages, and each heart responds to the joyousness that is in the air. Each heart on Christmas morn echoes sack the words, "Peace on earth, trill to men," till it would re could be no place for but peace and charity in . bra ted with unusual rejoicing. Good times prevail all over the country; money is more plentiful and Santa Claus, that dear old man revered in every child's heart, will be more generous than ever. It is a season of mutual expressions of good will between friends, and all cares are for the nonce laid aside. But it is not only the material side, but the spiritual, which should appeal most strongly to us. Nineteen hundred years ago the shepherds watching their flocks by night heard the celestial music and knew that sqme untoward event was taking place. The three wise men in the East had followed the guiding star and brought their fragrant offerings to lay before the King of kings. We should also bring our offerings by remembering Christ's lowly ones of earth, whom we have always with us the poor. They should be pre sented, as far as we are able, not only with substantial gifts, but with dolls and toys that delight and glad den the hearts and minds of the unfortunate little ones, who but for their neighbors' generosity would see no difference between this, day and any other. Remembering that it was a little Babe who delivered us from bondage, we can with lightened hearts turn to the material enjoyment of the day, and while the bells peal forth the joy ous tidings', these words recur to us and keep ringing in our hearts: solemn night! A thousand bells ring out and throw Their joyous peals abroad, and smite The darkness charmed and holy now.

'Ay Whether or not Congressman Roberts of Utah is a polygamist and ought not to be admitted to Congress, he has the law, precedent and equity on his side in the case thus far. His demurrer to the jurisdiction of the committee to try him on mere allegations, the right of Congress to order such trial as he has not been sworn in and is not a member of that body, his refusal to plead until specific charges are preferred and witnesses known, and finally his emphatic refusal to testify against himself, are each of them sufficient to throw a case out of court.

"Sure, 'tis beautiful intirely," replied Dennis admiringly, "an' might I make bould to ax who is the queen herself bcyant?" "That, Dennis, is my wife," said the other. "She was noted during her life on earth for her charity and generosity to the poor. Hence she was on her advent here made queen and ruler over all the spirit company. That other whom you saw a little while ago was my first wife, but so close and mean was she in life that she never offered to friend or beggar more than the value of those two small potatoes. Therefore she is obliged to wait in her damp, lone vault until some mortal will accept her miserable offering, and only once in a hundred years is any one permitted to descend and give her an opportunity of release." As he ceased speaking the gay company parted and made a shining lane down which the glittering queen came floating. She stopped and gazed at Dennis. "Is this the mortal," she cried, rcproachful-nes- s sounding in the flute-lik- e tones, "who refuses to give of his store to aid his starving neighbor?" And all the brilliant company took up the cry and came thronging about the wretched farmer, brushing him with their robes and peer ing into his face, chorusing in a confused clangor of reproach and threat and silvery regret, "Is this the mortal who refuses to aid his starving neighbor?" Dennis sank upon hts knees and hid his face in his hands. The clamor and rush ing grew louder and more confused, ond he crouched lower and lower until sud denly he knew that the queen was hold ing out her wand to him and he grasped it, it turned in his hand into the rough wet branch of a tree, and lol the gay, clamoring scene had vanished and he was lying in the darkness and silence upon the road where he had fallen at ram A.

Our first letter to the Kentucky Irish American started Everything in the religious line.

Of course there will be no weddings in Catholic circles this month, but in the Market St., Bet. Second and Third. early part of January and the new year there are several couples who will begin a new life, and we can but wish them much joy and a long and happy future. The courtship of some has been of long duration, that of others short almost love at first sight. First a word as to those who have recently become bene dicts. The wedding of Peter Dempsey, of Washington Court-HousOhio, and Miss Virginia Richardson", of this city, was a very elegant affair and the happy couple received many costly and handsome pres ents. We are a little late, but nevertheless congratulate them and wish both a long and happy life. The next was the union of Col. John D. Rogers and Miss Kathryn Norton, both If tliey need attention there is no better place to of this city. The groom was formerly have them fixed than at the foreman of the Kentucky Stock Farm, but is now one of .the leading grocers of the metropolis of the Blucgrass. He was also for n number of years a member of the Board of Police Commissioners. Miss Norton, the bnde, is one of Lexington's fairest daughters and a most estimable young lady, who numbered her admirers by the score. They were the recipients of many congratulations and also a large number of elegant presents. There were several other weddings during our long silence, but the forgoing Right Next to Avenue Theater. were the most prominent. Among those who will marry after the beginning of the new year are Garret Their prices are the lowest, work the best, and Welsh and Miss Mayme Farrell, both of all guaranteed. They will treat you right. this city. Mr. Welsh is the popular clerk at the Palace Hotel, while the bride-eleREMEMBER THE PLACE: is a and highly accomplished young lady.

There are several other couples reported, but as they have not yet author- zed public announcement we will re serve their names for a future issue: DANIEL DOUGHERTY. Thomas keenan. Speaking about marriages reminds mc that there are a number of couples in this city who have been keeping company, some of them for the last ten years, who can not sum up courage enough to ."pop the question." They do not take into consideration the number of tons of coal they have burned (of course Mike Cronin does not object to this) and the time they 1229 West Market Street, Bet.

Savage, who was killed Friday, occurred Sunday afternoon and was one of the largest that ever took place in Lexington, and the many and handsome floral offerings showed the esteem in which he was held. The deceased was a most estimable young man, and in his death the Southern railway lost a valued employe and his family a kind, devoted and loving son and brother. He was a member of Barry Council, and a large number turned out to pay their last respects. Michael Grady, aged fifty-tw- o years, a n and highly respected citizen, died Monday morning, causing inexpressible grief among a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. His funeral took place Wednesday morning. Mr. and Mrs. Peter McNally left Mon-da- y to visit their children at Memphis, XOXJISVir.lL.E. 3XY.

The vaudeville bill will include six of the leading specialties, altogether different from the ordinary specialties introduced in a burlesque bill. Howard and Emerson, who are perhaps the best known singers and song illustrators of all those that have visited Louisville, will introduce their latest act, in which the real istic moving pictures illustrating the popular songs, will be found decidedly interesting. Brock, Barnes, Groh and Van Duzer, composing the mimic four, will appear in an original legitimate spec ialty which will demonstrate their versatility and talent. W. R. Swor and Bessie Devoe, a pair ot unique entertainsatirical ers, will present an sketch. The bill will also include Junie McCree and Matt Travere, in a novel character creation, "The Dago and the Policeman." The Clerise Sisters contribute a delightful "turn" and Letta Meredith, the popular queen of burlesque, will be seen in a spectacular transformation, with calciums and color lights galore. The operatic travcrsty, "Man-hatte- n Beach by Moonlight," is said to be far superior to similar productions usually seen here, being beautifully staged aud costumed ana replete with original music and comedy. te well-know- "McFadden's Row of Flats" is the which comes to title of a the Avenue next week, and is synonymous with all that is novel, amusing and entertaining in this class of attractions.

The company this season, embracing a cast of twenty-eigpeople, has again been carefully selected, and many original noreltles and alterations for the better win he. teen. The electrical efleeta aadkatajte sttiuin are all especially now And at carried toy the v so iiwiiia whs near assail mas ht With the Hearing of the holiday season the merchant contrives to arrange for his windows and store rooms a display in keeping with the festive sea son. Where there were previously only commonplace articles of merchandise to set off the windows and counters, there comes with the Christmas tide an array of special holiday offerings that presents a vivid contrast to the everyday exhibits just supplanted. It is a well known fact that Louisville people are in a far more prosperous con dition than for severrl Christmases just past, and in view of this fact our merchants will vie with each other in providing fortheir establishments unique and attractive displays of their holiday wares. One large store of this city in particular is always a sort of Santa Claus head quarters. The children from year to year look forward with joyful anticipa tion to the time when J. Bacon & Sons, on Market street, between Preston and Jackson, shall announce to the public that their ever popular displays are ready for inspection. The announcement came Saturday, and in the afternoon hundreds of little girls nnd boys were crying "to go to Bacon's." Indulgent mothers could not resist, nor did they even try, for it must not be forgotten that grown people love to see Bacon's windows just the same as the little people. The consequence was that early Saturday afternoon the usual crowd had gathered about the well- known "east window," which is a house hold word all over Louisville for its in genious Christmas displays. The side walks were soon blocked, ana it was with great difficulty that the freight handlers unloaded the great wagons, lull of Christmas novelties, that were lined up against the curbing. The famous "east window" this season presents to the astonished eyes of the little one three wonderful juggltrs walker. The latter is a and a tight-rop- e fanciful figure, dressed in pink and blue, who does surprising things on the tight rope. Every now and then the children would clutch mamma's hand, thinking the harlequin was going to fall. But not so. Instead it was just a little trick of his to surprise them. Then, while a grotesque little Fillipino girl plrtvs.uponBJicc6rdeojj,and a towEley headed African thrums his banjo, the figure raises his foot, thmsts it through a hoop in his left hand, and then coquettishly waves his red and yellow parasol. While you are wondering how he is going to get out of his position he suddenly solves it for you, retracing his pedal in the same way which it went through at the beginning, The three jugglers are very captivating themselves. The first, who is as gaudily dressed as the Humpty Dumpty pictures of our childhood, is a magician worth seeing. Some of Bacon's little admirers are talking of inviting Hermann, the great, to come up and see a "sure enough" prestidigitator, whodeftly knocks his own head off with a fan, finds it in a dice box, and with a second wave of his wonderful fan restores it to his shoulders. If Hermann can beat this, they say, he is a genius, to be sure. The second juggler is not far behind in astonishing feats. He has a very wise look upou his face all he time, and you can easily see that he knows a lot more than you might at first glance suppose. He does his trick with a big, high hat and a flaming red handkerchief. He smiles as he lays the handkerchief over the hat, and yon feel right away that he knows his business. Then, all of a sudden, he lifts the covering, thrusts his baud in the hat and pulls out a mousel It is really wonderful, and the children clap their hands in genuine glee. Covering the hat again, the magician smiles pleasantly, and then reaches in and takes out the cutest little rabbit you ever saw, The third juggler stands at a little table, He wears a comical peaked hat, like a clown in a circus, which he takes off and places over the table. When he lifts the hat you behold a beautiful gold ring lying upou the table. Then he covers the ring and table with the hat for the second time, and when he next lifts it you see a football where the ring lay. For the third time he does his marvellous trick, and lol there lies on the table a die. Through the entire performance the Fillipino maid and the little negro boy play on their respective instruments, just as if they bad been used to seeing such things all their lives. On the inside the display is pretty nearly as niSch like fairyland as the pantomime in the window. The toy room is more dazzling and attractive than ever before, and the chlldrcn's delight is proportionately iucreased. One very strong attraction is a long glass case filled with dolls of all sizes and nationalities. Mechanical toys abound in great profusion, all plainly marked with their price in large figures. J. Bacon 3c Sons have long enjoyed an enviable distinction for the ingeniousness, of their holiday displays, and the present one will add to their alteady widespread fame.
