Hibernians Suggested by John J Gronon WellKnown Lokiisvillo Electrician Would Place Irish Temples in All Large American d Cities APPROYED BY THE COUNTY BOARD For some months past there has been much talk in local Hibernian and Irish American circles regarding the erection in this city of an Irish temple where many societies could meet that would be a credit to Louisville mentioned heretofore in these columns At the outset Division 1 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians subscribed about liOO to the guarantee fund for this purpose and since that time the sentiment iu favor of the suggestion has grown with startling rapidity and now all that seems neces sary for the realization of the hopes of the originators of this laudable idea is the appointment of a committee of repre I sentative and hustling Irishmen with authority to proceed with the work of raising the necessary funds John J Cronen the wellknown Third street electrician and prominent and pop ular in the Hibernian organization has long been a stanch advocate of some such measure and at a large meeting held Tuesday night in Hibernian Hall elo quently urged the adoption of a plan which has since been approved of by the County Board of Directors and Division 4 whereby the Ancient Order of Hiber nians might within a few years acquire handsome buildings in all the leading cities of the United States and Canada with but little effort upon their part THere are today abou 120000 members of the order in this country and were the National Board of Directors to order a semiannual assessment of fifty cents per member to be used for no other pur pose the amount thus raised would soon placein all the cities such buildings as- they desiredi While this sum seems very v4 small the amounTlhaT could Jfie raised during the next ten years would assume most gigantic proportions Of course in the distribution of the fund the larger the membership the larger would be the amount provided and this of itselfwould put every division in America to work to increase its members and therefore be entitled to the largest possible percent age of the money and there is substan tial grounds for the belief that before the first ten years rolled by there would be at least 500000 men enrolled in the Ancient Order of Hibernians All those who heard Mr Cronen pre sent his plan pronounced it the most feasible and practical ever suggested and were proud that it came from Louisville At the meeting of the County Board of Directors this week Secretary William Meehan was instructed to communicate with President John Keating and the National Board of Directors informing them of the action taken here and urging them to approve and submit the same to all the divisions under their jurisdiction The reporter for the Kentucky Irish American interviewed members of the four divisions this week all but one declaring themselves heartily in favor of the new idea The single one opposed explained that he wanted a home for Hibernians erected here immediately and were he assured that one could be f obtained without too long delay he would earnestly support and contribute to any plain that met general approval One thing seems assured however and that is that the Hibernians of this city will not long be without buildings of their own OCONNELLS FEE BOOK The Trustees of the National Library of Ireland have just purchased the fee book of Daniel OConnell This little volume in its hundred orso of pages of parallel columns laboriously prepared by the baud of the liberator himself shows in pounds shillings and pence his early struggles OConnell was called to the Irish bat in 1798the year of the rebellion and seven days later he got his first brief from a brotherinlaw who retained him to draft a declaration on promissory4 note The only other business begot that year was also given to him by a r kinsman a cousin cud it was of the same kind The fee on each occasion was1 2s Od It was hi one of his earl lest cases that OConnell made the retort that attracted attention to him He was crossexamining an awkward witness who declared that he had drunk nothing hut his share of a pint of whisky On I your oath now thundered the young counsel was not your share all but the pewter 6Connella fee book is an interesting record of his rapid rise in the profession For the first year as we have seen his income amounted to only 26s6d Next year he earned over 450 and the year after he made over 400 According to memoranda made in his own handwriting Lj his income in 1803 was j45 and inI the- fol1owIg years 76 840 l077 o ll71aljllNci7S V61 3047 aud 43808 respectively This record throws much light on the incomes at the Irish bar nearly 100 years ago for in 1812 when OConnell was making nearly 4000 a year he was still quite a young man MICHAEL J SWEENEY His Hotel Is Now Among the Most Popular In This Metropolis The heartiest laugh in the city comes from the lips of Michael J Sweeney the genial proprietor of the Trebings Hotel on Market street between Sixth and Seventh There is never a time when he tsuwIvv BONIFACE MIKE SWEENEY is not in a good humor and in his big body there isa heart to match He is the friend of every one and one might walk miles in the city of Louisville and not find a man who would say a word against Mike Sweeney Mike Sweeney is a Louisville man lIe began his career as a machinist for Bren nan Co where he worked for several years and saved his money Later he opened a saloon at the corner of Eighth and Market streets where he made money and friends as well and there was never a time that the place was not crowded day and night After several years of prosperity he de cided to get into the hotel business and purchased the Trebing Hotel where he is now located Since taking hold of the place he has almost completely re modeled it and the former patrons will hardly recognize it Beautiful oak carved doors are placed in the front part where therncebbeenestabUshedanponrilar the rooms have been rejuvenatedand nicer ones can not be found at any hotel in the city The table is all that could be desired and no one ever goes away hungry or dissatisfied The bar is one of the most complete to be found any where and there is nothing in the way of damp goods that can not be found there- I have started offon the new year in great shape said Mr Sweeney to a re porter for the Kentucky Irish American and if it only keeps up as it has begun I will be satisfied My hotel is becoming better known every day and whenever a man stops here once I am sure of getting him again All of my old friends are gradually finding out where I am and they are calling to see me daily But I never have anything to kick about Fate is kind to me I think I must have made a mash on her when I was a baby Then he laughed one of those hearty laughs which have made him famous and the bystanders could not help joining in his merriment It was contagious NEWPORT COUNCIL Young Mens Institute Now

Territory Cardinal Gibbons Review ofthe Events of tile Century Just Closed Prays Against the Intoxicating Wino of Imperialism or Militarism MOCKERY OF JUSTICE AND SCANDAL Cardinal Gibbons delivered a sermon at high mass last Sunday in the Baltimore Cathedral in which he reviewed briefly the events of the century just closed with special reference to the wars which have been waged during that period as a preface to an urgent plea for universal peace He incidentally touched upon the subject of the proposed increase of the standing army in this country pointing out the evil results arising from the maintenance of large bodies of armed men in Europe and expressed the hope that similar conditions may never obtain in this country The text was Isaiah he The mission of Jesus Christ on earth was a mission of peace He came to establish in our hearts a triple peacepeace with God peace with our neighbor and peace with ourselves Mans peace with God was dissolved by his rebellion against his Maker Christ came to re store man to the friendship of God by sacrifice of Ills life on the cross He tells us that this peace is to be maintained by the observance of the commandments There is much peace 0 Lord to those that keep Thy law and for them there is no stumblingblock Cardinal Gibbons is reported to have said in the course of his grand sermon He has taught us to have peace with our neighbor by observing the eternal principles of justice and charity by doing unto others what we would wish others to do unto us And He tells us that we will have peace with ourselves by keeping our passions subject to reason antI our reason subject to faith But Christs mission ofrpeaceliada wider scope than to the individual man His mission was also to bring peace to the family and society As the God of Peace which Ht is called by St Paul He brings peace to the human heart As the Father of Peace He brings peace to the family and as the Prince of Peace as He is called by Isaiah He brings peace to society and the commonwealth- Is it not a mockery of justice and a scandal to the pagan world to see two Christian nations cutting each others throat in the name of Christian civilization Is it not an outrage to contemplate one nation forcing by the sword her laws her government and political institutions on another nation in the Interests of trade and commerce as if merchandise and dollars and cents were of more value than human lives Is it not monstrous to see a strong power invading a weak one and seizing her territories on the hypocritical plea of rectifying her bound aries This rectification of boundaries is a very old practice and is a polite name for robbery on a large scale May God so guide our legislators and statesmen that they may never be be trayed into imitating European Govern ments by the establishmentof formidable standing armies God forbid that we ourselves flushed with recent victories should ever become intoxicated with the wine of imperialism or militarism but may we always follow the traditions of the fathers of the republic s BISHOP WIGGER Venerable Bishop of Newark Passed Away Satur day Night The venerable and Right Rev Bishop M Wigger of

elected and in stalled officers for the ensuing year and reports current of the proceedings must be gratifying to the hosts of friends of the founder of that now great fraternal society the late Granville W Smith whose memory and indefatigable works are still cited and held forth for emula tion The idea of such an organization oc curred to him the day following the awful cyclone that worked death and destruction here years ago and he was the organizer of the present society which now numbers its members well up In the thousands In recognition of this he was elected the first Supreme Presi dent and from the small beginning there are now about 200 brandies scattered throughout the United States Few names are more frequently blessed by the widow and orphan than that of Gran Smith through whose humble efforts thousands have been snatched from poverty and distress The Catholic Knights and Ladies are to be commended for their remembrance and honor of their founder EAST END ClUB

Immense Audience Splendid Reception Refresh ments and Stirring Addresses NEW OFFICERS RECEIVE OVATION The pretty halt of Trinity Council Young Mens Institute which has a seat ing capacity of nearly five hundred was taxed to its utmost Monday night to accommodate the friends of that sterling East End Catholic society who gathered there to witness the installation of officers for the year 1001 Bushs orchestra composed of younger members of Trinity Council occupied the stage and dis coursed sweet music during the evening several selections being exceptionally well rendered The exercises began with a splendid song and chorus by members that was warmly applauded after which President John J Sullivan in a few well chosen woras welcomed the visitors and guests explaining the great principles of the Young Mens Institute which were to help one another with wise counsel and advise to care for the sick and those in distress and to bury the dead The President also congratulated the memo bers upon the success achieved during the past year and thanked them for their readiness to assist the various pastors of the city whenever their services were de sired His references to the popular chaplain Rev Father Edward OGrady a llarge picture of whom adorned the stage over the chair of the presiding officer evoked the greatest enthusiasm of the entire evening The annual reports declared the Council in a healthy and flourishing condition Secretary Joe Piazzas statement showed 221 members in good standing with nearly 1000 in the treasury after the disburs nient 4f over 3OO j rsil1sand jfuneral tue oiler heavy expenses incurred in beautifying their hall providing the gymnasium and other incidental expenses all of which had been paid The reading of President Sullivans report by Secretary Stoerr was listened to with close attention and was well received by the large audience After reviewing the triumphs of Trimity Council over opposition from unexpected quarters and calling attention to the un exampled increase in the membership President Sullivan says The general good will on the part of all members of this council to show that we are a live uptodate organization and the splendid work of our standing and special committees oblige me to express to you now my sincerest thanks for a co operation which has far surpassed my most sanguine expectations I beg of you to keep up this good spirit and to strengthen it more and more by closer at tention to the objects of our organization and a cultivation of the friendliest relations between all members This friend ship is best achieved by a regular attend ance at the meetings which will insure a fair division of the work of the council Your part in this work is not only the payment of your dues but the perform ance of various committee duties by which you are brought into closer con tact with each other and through which you benefit yourself in a business way more than by any other means I can not refrain as a matter of example to others from commenting in a special manner on the ever ready assistance of my worthy predecessors in office Bros James B Kelly and Ben Hund and of Bros Dr J B Lammers W N Gnat Clem Ellert Adam Schneider Theo Kreiger and others too numerons to men withIformance of any committee duties and for good counsel and advice I consider it one of my most stringent duties on this day to publicly express to them not only my thanks but those of the whole coun cilI also feel greatly Iindebted to my brotherofficers from the Rev Chaplain down to the Outside Sentinel for their faithful attendance to duty The council has been most fortunate in the selection of its officers for the past year atd that is one of the principal reasons for the good showing we are able to make at the beginning of this new year With great regret do I see our faithful brother Bro Joseph Piazza lay down his office of Financial Secretary in which he always tried to emulate the good example of his predecessor the remembrance of whom should never grow dim in our council our dearly beloved Bro RobertG Strube for- tIi peaceful repose of whose soul we again invoke the mercy four Heavenly Father The thanks of this council and especially of those members who had the misfortune to get sick during the last year are also due to the members of the atckxommlttee whose record for

this day forget the never tiring zeal for the welfare of this council that has been ex hibited by the Ladles Auxiliary God bless our ladies We owe them our heartiest cooperation and I for one anI

next introduced and discussed the principles upon which the Young Mens Institute was founded and the willingness to assist young men who desire to help them selves The longest and best speech of the evening was delivered by James Shelly the first President of Mackin Council who drew a pleasing contrast between himself and the young ladies who were present to witness the installation of young men who might ere long be more to them than mere brothers Ills eulogy of Bishop Byrne and Father OGrady during which he deplored the fact that many clergymen did not exhibit the same interest in their organization was frequently interrupted by hearty ap plause Others who responded with brief remarks were David OConnell Trinitys first President and Ben Hund Dr Lammers and Torn Garvey the ad vance agent A most amusing feature was the comic tragedy recitation by John RiegerWhile the orchestra played a number of selections a corps of coloredwaiters served refreshments of all kinds in abundance and before leaving ninny were heard to express the wish that Trinity held public installations monthly instead of yearly The council deserves great credit for its praiseworthy entertainment U LADIES

For Organization THE MOST UNHEARDOF LITTLENES 1 The General Manager of the Kentucky Indiana Bridge Company on January 1 issued an order requiring all of the en ployes of that company to pay half ft rates For instance a niotorman livj in New Albany must pay two and half cents to come over here to take out his train If the wires are down and hi train doesnt run he must pay another tvi and a half cents to get home The mo tormen on this line receive the munffjj cent sum of sixteen and a half cents ai hour No other railroad entering Louis yule requires its employes to pay half fare going to or coming from work No railroad entering Louisville has received so many favors from this city and New Albany as the Kentucky Indiana Bridge Company It paid no taxes to Louisville for years and now paysvejjJ little compared with other bridges M secured an indorsement of its bonds the city of New Albany to the extent 500000 and it has been allowed to i over grade crossings at many places wi out stationing a flagman It has won both municipalities for all they wj worth and now it seeks to work th motormen and its shop employes at th rate of five cents a day No smaller piece of business was eve

Emerald well says If we are ever going to succeed in bringing into the ranks the men of our race and creed we should endeavor to show more interest in the orders success than at present No time like the present is a good old saying therefore we should make the most of the opportunity To begin with regular attendance at the meetings should be the watchword The remark is very often heard on a meeting night Oh there is no use of my going to the meeting tonight there will be enough there without me to do the business P Yes but supposing every member reasoned in the saniemanuer The result tvould be that no meetings could be held Now this kind of conduct on the part of members will not do Every member should attend The presence and voice of each member are just what is wanted at each meeting and are just what will help to make our organization a success arid the meeting will be much more interesting and the business will be carrted out with that success that only ood attendance at meeting can accom pUsh It is not right or fair to the best interests of our society thin one class of members should depend upon the other clans to do the work Lett1ti8 cease and instead let every

longer the man of the world he belongs no longer to his country all his relations with society have ceased For him the calculation by time is ended and he dates now only with the great era of eternity
