I James C Gilbert one of Louisvilles most prominent and success ful business men died Wednesday morn- Ing at Martiusville Ind where he went some weeks ago in the hope of regaining his health which had been poor for about r a year past During the few days preceding his demise it was reported that his chances for recovery were almosUfifrtaiu and the sad news came as a greatsftock to the whole community Mrs Gilbert and daughter Miss Edna who accom panied him and his two widowed sisters from Illinois were at the dying mans bedside when the end came Alderman Gilbert was the bead of the BradleyGilbert Printing Companyand no employer was ever held in higher re sped by the printing trades than he For- abe4 twentyJfiveyears he was a member of the Board of Aldermen and during that long period of time no vote or action t of his was evet questioned Whenever there was a point in doubt it WAS referred to Uncle Jim whose decision Iways stoodBefore the adoption of the new charter he was the Ninth ward representative in the Board of Aldermen and there was not a man woman or child in Limerick would refuse to vote for him His time and influence and often his means were at the disposal of deserving people and the numbers benefited through him would prove astonishing were they known But his good deeds were done quietly and without any other purpose than the satis faction that his efforts were appreciated and successful jiMGilbrt tan tve Gfirli55o ihaving been born in Jackson sixtyeight years ago After mastering the printing trade he came to Louisville in 1858 and his excellent workmanship and executive ability soon placed him in the front rank among the printers of those days After a time he and Thomas Bradley combined and founded what is now the Bradley Gilbert Company at Third and Green streets for many years regardedamong the leading printing houses of this sec tion The highest wages were paid the employes and the most skillful printers always preferred situations under him as his reputation extended throughout the entire country Another trait that en deared Mr Gilbert to the printers was his steadfast and unyielding friendship for the typographical union of which he was a member at its birth and during his long career he never inaugurated are duction of wages or locked out his em ployes Such a thing as a strike at Bradley Gilberts has never been thought of by anyone There are now several employes holding stock in the company which was said to have been given them by their honored employers- In politics Mr Gilbert was a Democrat and bad he been ambitious he might have secured any office of his choice Often was he urged to become Mayor of the city but he always declined the honor though his associates in the Board of Aldermen insisted upon his serving as a member of the Board of Sinking Fund Commissioners and a Director in the Water Company holding the Presidency of the former for several years The policemen andfiremen also found ill him a true friend and though regarded as a treasury watchdog be never kept them for months out of theirpay as has been done during the past year The remains arrived here last Wednes day night and were met at the depot and escorted to the family residence on Fourthavenue by a large number of friends where hundreds stood in line to await their turn to express their sympa thy to Mrs Gilbert and

Branch 25 as District Organ izer for the Catholic Knights of America for the eastern section of the city The appointment was made two weeks ago and since that time Organizer Nolan has received twentyfive applications for membershipPresident Reichert made a wise selec tion as his appointee was for about four years associated with the old line insur ance companies and has had much insurance experience This experience he declares teaches me that for the work ing classes and people of moderate means who are eligible there is no insurance so desirable or equal to that offered by the

Install Its Officers and Resume Euchres Trinity Will Celebrate New Years With Its Baby Show Cairo Walk and Other Attrac tions For Young and Old I BOTH WILL ATTRACT LARGE CROWDS Trinity Council has sent out a large number of Invitations for Its New Years Day entertainment which will be cele brated In fine style at the club house on East Gray street GEORGE PETERS President Sullivan informed the Kentucky Irish American that this years programme will surpass anything ever before attempted in this city The com mittees appointed by him have arranged a proftammethat can notbutplease old eatlysutg ienew andjuovelaltractions- be r t a Christmas tree front which Santa Claus will distribute gifts There will also be a childrens cake walk and Kris Kringle will probably be time presldlhg judge But the principal feature of the day will be the baby show for which handsome prizes have been secured for those who receive the most votes The only show of the kind which had more entries this year was that of the Elks but this one should prove more popular as the prizes are more numerous and costly The installation of officers will also take place Tuesday evening and the friends of the members of Trinity have all been invited to be present The Young Ladies Auxiliary which embraces many society leaders and belles of the East End will be the guests of honor and extensive preparations have been made for the entertainment of both the ladies and all other visitors From rumors now afloat it is safe to say that all those fortunate enough to be present will long remember the inauguration of the new century by Trinity Council Mackin Council of the Young Mens Institute the leading young peoples society of the West End will install its newly rlected officers next Tuesday even ing They are all popular gentlemen and the exercises will be witnessed by a large audience From some of the leading members we learn that the erection during the coming year of a fine dancing hall or pavilion is contemplated which will make their ele gant club house and its accessories the equal of any in this city The retiring officers have their reports ready for submission to the council all showing gratifying progress during the past year Members will be glad to learn that in addition to paying for all the im provements made to the house and grounds a snug sum of money has been added to the building fund Mackin resumed its series of weekly euchres Thursday evening which will now continue regularly until the beginning of Lent These affairs have become very popular from the fact that only those who have received invitations are allowed to participate for the handsome prizes offered The euchre parties are quite select and patronized by only the better class of our citizens GREAT BftTANS PERIL Uall the intelligence item South Africa is not misleading Great Britain is face to face with a peril which has long been apprehended and which might by the exercise of prudence have been averted says the Chicago Chronicle The Cape Dutch are on the point of rising Indeed they may be said to hart risen The situation is1 farr mire serious than idle been at any time within the last IKX months Lord Kitchener hH not only to deal with tleBoer commandos which are relatively weak in point of naosber but be js confronted with tile fad that at let apart ot the population i of Caps Cobs rod Natel Is Iin revolt 1t1I J and that all of it is disaffected His appeal for reinforcements constitutes an admission of the fact The seriousness of the situation lies in the fact that while Cape Colony and Natal are nominally British they are really Dutch in language and in popula tion The Dutch outnumber the British ten to one They arc under British rule but they never loved it The war against their brethern of the Transvaal and the Orange Free State has changed passive dislike into active hatred The recon centrado policy of Gen Kitchenerthe burning of farms and wanton destruction of propertybas completed the process The Boers of the Cape and of Natal have seen the northern republics laid waste with fire and sword and they have undoubtedly reached the conclusion that tbeir own turn would come next They have determined to anticipate such a fate by taking up arms That is the menace which the British empire faces to day Britain undoubtedly will crush the Dutch of the Cape as she will crush those of the Transvaal but the task is one which will exhaust every resource of the empirewhich may weaken Britain fatally and lead to her ultimate downfall The subjection of a race is a task which is nowadays fortunately all but AUGUST KLINE impossible The nation which attempts it has need to count time cost in advance MARRIED IN OCTOBER Jots Hill andMiss Mary Hoertz i priisThir Many The surprise of the past week in society circles was the announcement of the marriage of Joe Hill and Miss Mary Hoertz which occurred October 10 Rev Father Cunningham of Holy Cross church performing the ceremony Both are well known young people time bride being the accomplished daughter of exState Senator Jake Hoertz Joe Hill has for some years been the star in local amateur theatricals in which he was ably assisted by the young lady whom he has wedded There was no objection to the union from either side but the young people chose this manner to avoid public display preferring quiet wedding A FRIEND OP THE IRISII POOR In the death of Vere Henry Louis Fos ter at Belfast the Irish people have lost a friendwho though an Englishman born and bred devoted his life to their service A casual visit which he paid to Ireland in 1847 resulted in his taking up the work in which he spent more than half a cen tury He was then a young man in the diplomatic service of Great Britain but I after witnessing the misery which prevailed in the unhappy island because of the failure of the potato crop he gave up his career and began at once to do what he could to assist the unfortunate people Perhaps the most important thing he accomplished was in improving condi tions on board the emigrant ships which took thousands of the poorer classes of Irish to America He made three voyages in the steerage of these ships and when he went before Parliament he was able from personal experience to speak of the disgraceful and unsanitary accommodations provided for steerage passengers with such force that emigration laws were quickly passed which put an end to such conditions He also was responsible for the building of more than 2000 schools in Ireland and for the substitu tion of board floors for damp earth in many more He is said to have person ally assisted more than 25000 young Irish women to emigrate from the con gested districts of the island to America and the British colonies and there is a long list of other charitable work to his credit lie died at the advanced age of eightyone years CHAPLAIN CHIDWICK Upon the request of Rear Admiral Rogers the Rev Father Cbfdwick who was chaplain on time ill

missioned by President McKinley to visit Cuba investigate and report on the matter of church property the jurisdiction of the bishops clergy and religious orders their relations with the Govern pent and people with the purpose that all aay be peaceably and jjustly arranged under the change from r Spanish rule Archbishop Chap pelle under President McKinleys commission arranged these matters yfePorto Rico and suggested the y proper course to be followed in framing the constitution to govern that island He is now in the Philippines on a similar mission No two men better fitted for such a mission could have been selected that they are both Catholic prelates c is not due to intrigue with the Catholics as bigots insinuate and political partisans endorse but to the fact that it is essential that only Catholic prelates can properly at tend to it the only church matters 0 to adjust in those provinces being Catholic that being the only church there The only church power with which these questions can be settled is the Pope of Rome and finally jf the only qualified persons to settle the questions ecclesiastical as well t as civil must necessarily be a Catholic prelate This iis generally recognized and I President McKinleys wisdom in f selecting Archbishops Ireland and Cbappelte for such important mis sions is approved by all reasoningI F people especially since these two f prelates are universally respected by the American people for their f1ability fairness and patriotism Of- jj course the bigots condemn and the j 1 partisans indirectly approve the condemnation of the clothing of Catholic prelates with authority to represent the United States Govern ment in so important a matter as shaping the government of American territory and people th- usI recognizing and founding the union of church and state in violation of the Constitution and principles of Iour governmentas they put it ignoring the fact that the prelates are American citizens and eligible to any office under the Government and further that they are in this K instance simply commissioned t- oi ascertain and report the condition I of affairs and suggest the best course to pursue to remedy incon I sistencies and troubles to Ameri canize the government and people of those sections of the world and finally that the prelates are not I clothed with executive or arbitrary Ii powers and their reports and suggestions must be subject to the law I making powers Congress and the tPresident and can only be effective m when enacted into law 1 But then every one knows that K the onlyl reason the patriotic bigots m object is that Archbishops Ireland 1 and Chappelle are Catholices and I the reason the partisans object is I because they think they see a chance I to make a political point against W their political opponents the McKinley administration These facts m being generally understood no one R but the bigots and partisans pay R much attention to the incident K thought it is likely to be heard from m again when the question of estab 1 listing or approving the form of i government for these islands comes before Congress It may then 1 assume the tangible form of reso B lutions and protests with their real I bases and purposes1 carefully con I coaled however1 but nevertheless I fully understood l because twoCath ik arcUpishopi suggested at least 011L THE STORE GIRLS The poor store girls is an expression frequently heard among the Christmas shoppers as they noticed the overwork and long hours to which the girls employed in stores were subjected during the rush of trade It is the same every Christmas or any other time when business is rushed The storekeep ers are generally denounced and I that ends the matter till next Christ masAll naturally sympathize with the girls so do we A suggestion that the labor organizations should remedy this matter is very proper and indeed they alone can remedy it There must be a beginning and in this as in every other in stance there is one essential pre liminary without which the labor organizations nor any one else can accomplish results The store girls must learn that it depends chiefly upon themselves They must take the proper steps to arrive at a unity of purpose objects and strength for action They must form a union formulate their grievances present their petitions and stand together in doing so When they get ready to under take the forming of an organiza tion they can notify the Central Labor Union and they will be promptly aided by advice and otherwise how to proceed and when ready to seek redress better treatment and pay shorter and more regular hours they will be directed andywaided jn the mpve and have the earnest anti united support of every labor organization in the city- Further there are several propri etors of the largest stores in the city that will promptly grant their re quest and aid them in forcing other store proprietors to do likewise for the present irregular and overwork ing system is as unsatisfactory to these proprietors as it is to their employes but they must follow it because others do It all rests with the girls whether they will continue under the present system If they start the move now in earnest it is more than probable they will enjoy a decided change in the Christmas trade next year Like all other workers men toS well as women they must take the initiatory steps in attending to their own business remedying their own grievances and1 bettering their own condition When they show their purpose to do so they will be promptly and fully aided to success Now girls what will you do about it WAR AnONQ THE SPORTS II When rogues fall out etc is suggested by the fight now on among the gamblers over the application of Kachler for a license to open a saloon on Market between Third and Fourth streets The saloon is only the surface indication and really cuts no figure in the row The building is a large one and really not needed for only a saloon the proceeds of which would not justify its use But the public understand why some saloons require so much room to fully carry on their busi ness in its various phasesthe saloon being merely thepublic entrance as it were The Kachler saloon is to be no exception A man named Alvey proposes to have a pool room and probably other Accommodations for the sportively inclined and this is the reall bone of contention but is kept in the background for reasons uuneces lrytoltatrheracket is at racting so much attention how even that unless the warring ftc u tions compromise in some way the whole thing may be so fully ex posed that both may be squelched by the popular outcry or rather the fear of it The officers of the law may find it imperative to stop Alvey and close up all the other gambling resorts for a while at leastIn the meantime the fight is a merry one and despite the cautious moves of the principals and their attorneys to say nothing of certain State and city officials the details are known and watched with inter est It is Wehtnhoff against Alvey and both are powers in their respect ive spheres in the sporting world Each has his adherents attorneys and II friends in the Courthouse and City Hall One has notori ously persisted in violating the gambling laws and the other doubless thinks her is entitled to do the same Wehmhoff has a saloon pool room etc and Alvey seems to want as thoroughly equip ped an establishment but Wehm hoff does not seem to consent to it This is the real issue behind Kachlers application for a saloon license and accounts for the im portance array of counsel and noise in connection with it Wehmhoff has the monopoly the money the friends and the pull with the pow ers that be Alvey has the money some friends and is claiming the same right toII a pull Wilt he get it If he does there will be peace in sportdom for a while if he doesnt well it depends on his nerve and he is reputed to have plenty The charge made by the Times that the southern part of Louisville known as Limerick is infested by exconvicts is false and is an injus tice to that section A great many negroes are to be found in the alleys of the neighborhood from Eighth to Twelfth street and the people of those parts are doing their best to have the nuisance looked after A few more electric lights placed on the streets from Sixth to Twelfth and on St Catharine and Oak would help greatly to abolish the loafing places of idlers but not exconvicts who at present are con gregating there to the annoyance of the residents The southern part of this city was horrified by the shocking tragedy of December 23 in which night watchman John Happelman lost his life at the yard of the Green River Asphalt Company on Ninth and Zane streets He was a trusted employe and deserving man and every step has been taken to trace the murderer who robbed the unfor tunate man as well as slew him The police will doa good thing in getting rid of the toughsmostly negroeswho infest that part of the city and who are a menace to life and property The part which the Holy Father took in the gorgeous ceremonies attending the closing of the Holy Door of St Peters Cathedral on December 24 goes to show to the whole world that the Supreme Head of Christendom is yet strong and vigorous After the trying ceremony he intoned the Te Deum in a resonant voice and gage further evidence of his magnificent consti tution The announcement of the death exAlderman James C Gilbert cast a gloom all over Louisville Wednesday He was a man in every way and the number of young men whom he has counseled and assisted is unlimited The poor have indeed lost a good friend The friends of the Boers have not yet abandoned hope The news this week was very satisfactory the English having sustained

and devoted mother Her funeral took place Wednesday morning from the Dominican church with solemn high mass and the interment was in St Louis cemetery PHILIPPINE DIIFFCULTIES The imperialists say they will abandon the Philippines if the Supreme Court should so decide But that is more easily said than done There are people who ask what power Congress or the President and the Senate as the treatymaking power has to cede territory which has been acquired by treaty to any country or set it off from the United States as an independent nationality Thus at every turn we are reminded what a piece of foolishness it was not to have gone into this whole matter carefully before agreeing to buy the Philippines from Spain WHAT IS THE VATICAN The term refers to a collection of buildings on one of the seven hills of Rome which covers a space of 1200 feet in length and 1000 feet in breadth It is built on the spot once occupied by the gardens of Nero About the year 1160 Pope Eugenius built it on a magnicent scale Innocent II a few years afterwards gave it up as a lodging to Peter II king of Arragon In 1305 Clement Vat the urging of the king of France removed the Papal See from Rome to Avignon when the Vati can remained in a state of obscurity and neglect for more than seventy years But soon after the return of the Pontifical court to Rome which finally took place in 1376 the Vatican was put into a state of repair again enlarged and it was thenceforward considered the regular residence and palace of the Popes who one after the other added fresh buildings to itand gradually enriched it with antiques statues pictures and books until it became the richest depository in the world The library of the Vatican was com menced 1400 years ago It contains 49000 manuscripts among which are souse by Pliny St Thomas St Charles Borrowed and many Hebrew Syrian Arabian and Armenian Bibles The whole of the building composing the fOIUMbepaintings by the taaaUn and curious
