the old home on Portland avenue Mr Patterson left and went to Illinois where he purchased a farm but this life not being to his liking he returned to Louisville where he has since resided His father then took him into partnership which lasted until the death of the latter in 1870 Then he assumedentire charge of the business and so successful has he been that he leaves a handsome fortune For many years William Patterson was closely identified with public life in Louisville serving successive terms in the Board of Aldermen where lie was recog nized as one of its most prominent and influential members With the late James Gilbert he always had the inter ests of the city and his constituents at heart and no one labored more faithfully or earnestly in their behalf His honor able record and

Emerald Isle Has No Benson to Mourn For Victoria Twenty Coercion Acts on the Statute Book Bear Her Signature The Most Disastrous Reign For Ireland Since That of Elizabeth MANY EVILS DONE IN HER NAME Michael Davitt in a special cablegram from Dublin to the New York World of Sunday thus speaks of the feelings in Ire land toward the late Queen and the causes thereforAll loyal gush and affected grief are part of the social insincerities and sentimental flunkeyism which grew out of monarchical institutions Thty are the ceremonial hypocrisies of society which requires royalty as the fount of honors to be an indispensable part of aristocratic institutions Today it is a matter of fashionable tears for a dead Queen Tomorrow it will be a round of rejoicing over the succession of a coro nated King and all the time the millions of wage earners in Great Britain and Ire land continue their daily labor produc tion of wealthand payment of taxes so that this kind of monarchical mummery shall continue in countries burdened with a costly court with crowds of lords and titled names andwith over 1000 000 of manufactured paupers Here in Ireland we see things some what more truly if withal our mentaland political vision is not altogether free from a wholesome preju dice in its appreciation Queen Victoria was to us more of an expression than of a personality We knew her through coercive laws which bore her signature through the suspension of the habeas corpus act in her name and by procla mations which frequently told us that her authority denied us the right to meet in public meetings or to exercise the ele mentary rights of citizenship in a country which is supposeddoenjoy constilu ir III is qtiAtioual rulel r11is 19 now the llate Queen has been made known by her statesmen to millions of our race We citi not be blamed if with a keen and bitter memory for all which her name stands for in the brutal misgovernment of Ireland during her lifetime we do not join in the show of simulated bereavement which is said to be universal across the Irish sea Divested of exaggeration and of the falsehoods of flattery the biography the Queen of England would represent her in character and capacity as a very ordinary woman She had shown good qualities in her home life sound sense in the discharge of her duties to the State and common sense in her official rela tionship with other powers All this is of course to her credit She might have been more personally vicious more meddlesome in her delegated public func tions and less amiable in her attitude to ward other nations It is really for the absence of bad rather than for the posses sion of great qualities that her name is being so much lauded at the present hour As a matter of fact she has had neither the power nor the opportunities to accom plish what courtier chroniclers and news paper eulogists assign to her credit The British constitution limits the action and the duties of the monarch to the narrow est limits of personal initiative She could not suggest a single measure of legislation or influence a single act of government except on the express advice or instruction of her Ministers It is her signature and not her personality that has counted in the lawmaking and the administration of the British empire during her reign and all the gallons of ink at present flowing in commemoration of her beneficent achievements are serving the purposes of intoxicated fiction more than of sober truth in the writing of the records of the last sixtythree yearsNo act of real greatness or notable deed of generosity or benevolent work of enduring good for either England or mankindcan truthfully be placed to her account She was morally a good woman There are millions of women equally as blameless and stainless She was a faithful wife and a careful prudent mother Granted But these are ordinary and homely virtues more frequently seen too in wives and mothers overburdened with the daily anxie ties of an industrial or business life than in the palaces of the queens where neither food fuel raiment nor rent are obstacles or dangers in the path of domestic peace and loyalty These are no standards by whlchto truthfully measure the worth or work of queens The ques tion is To what great or noble task did Queen Victoria utilize her exalted post lion enormous wealth and powerful per sonal influence as monarch of an immense empire There is no flattering historic answer to such a question Shells not of course any more to be blamed fortheevils done in her name by her statesmen and governors than she is entitled to obtain credit for the prosperity and progress which are coincident to her reign but absolutely accidental loher life L o t or influence within thatper bd No reign in Englands history savet

FIRST NIGHT Auspicious Return of Hiber nians to ThelrOId Home The return of Division 3 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians to the old home Carroll Nelligans Hall Nineteenth and Portland avenue last Monday night was made under pleasing circumstances that augur well for the future of this old and representative body of Louisville Irishmen The cozy and comfortable hall was well filled when President John Cavanaugh ascended to the Presidents chair and many men were present who had heretofore been very irregular in at tendance besides a number of visitors among them County President Keenan and State Secretary Coleman Mike Sheehan Pat Nelligan Peter Linskey and other pillarsof the division were on hand to give all a cordial greeting but all missed genial Joe Taylor The Visiting Committee reported Messrs Tom Moore Edward Malone Nick Sheridan Pat Kennedy and Hugh Higgins still sick but with hopes for their speedy recovery County President Keenan when called upon wished the division success in its new hall and believed that now there should be a steady growth He also spoke of the earnest desire of the county officers to be able to report an increase in the Louisville membership during the coming year and urged all his hearers to cooperate in bringing this about Speak ing of the anniversary celebration for St Patricks day the assurance was given that the entertainment will be firstclass every way and a pleasant surprise was in store for the Hibernians and their friends Pat Holley congratulated the division upon returningto its old home in which so many grand meetings had been held He hoped that in time nearfuture itwould assume its former proportions andagain stand at the head of the order with a regular attendance of at least 150 members thereby encouraging the officers to greater efforts and making the meetings still more instructive closing with an eloquent appeal for good men to jour the orderUpon motion of James Coleman it de cided to hold social sessions monthly Timid suggestion met with hearty approval George Butlers speech aroused the greatest enthusiasm of the evening be cause it bristled with facts He urged all to go out and secure a new member and to keep after those who ought to belong to the order each serving as a special committee Bjr so doing they would have at least tw Htyfive to initiate during March when nit the divisions would be invited to iM ud and witness theuceremonioair TRINITY COUNCIL t Two Grand Minstrel Performances For Sunday amid Thursday Interlocutor William Qnst and Eight End Men Will Ore

Patterson the well known contractor and exAlder man died somewhat unexpect edly of peritonitis Wednesday I night though he had been ill for I wo weeks Mr Patterson was jj known and respected by all classes of people and noted for his energy I business tact faithfulness to friends generosity to all deserving persons and a jollity that made him a most v pleasant companion He was uni versally popular and in his political y career no scandal ever attached to his name though in thi heat of campaigns he was ridiculed and i- r r atitackedw jlnnd after the campaign all was simply regarded as the way of M politics and Patterson treated it as a good joke and laughed heartily at those whom he had beaten de spite their abuse of him As an Alderman he urged progressive measures and to him the West End is indebted for much of its rapid improvement in the past fif teen years Mr Patterson born in County Cavan Ireland came to this coun try a poor boy without money or friends but he was ambitious in dustrious honest and began as a i llaborer in Wheeling W Va coming to Louisville about forty years ago being employed as a teamster afterward bought a cart and team and started for himself From this beginning he gradually by strict attention to business became the leading j Mitrflrinr t ftiecity Hut by judicious investments became rich In all his prosperity the public shared His investments were in city real estate which he improved and put to use and busi ness interests with profit to him selfemployment to labor and gen erd development and advancement of the city To his friends he was ever ready with advice and assistance in every charity and good work his coopera lion and contribution was freely given To the poor without their knowledge substantial aid such as fuel food and clothing were sent no questions askedbut the bill was paid byBilly Patterson whose word was as good as a bond and his credit as good as gold with all merchantst As a Catholic he was devout practical and faithful in his duties As an Irishman he was earnest zealous and always active in every move to uphold and advance the welfare of his race the rights and glory of his native country He was a selfmade man in the fullest sense whose life work was an example and an encouragement to young Irishmen of what energy pluck and industry can do for them In this country despite the adversi ties of poverty and opposition of fanatical foes for he overcame all of diem His exemplary character compelled all to respect him and is a model for others to follow while ua friend and helper of the Tits

foreman on tHe gambling question was a disap poi tnientIt did nothing except indict the Western Union Telegraph Company iRS accessory to an offense which it is admitted is Sfiiibleto- prove the principal guilty of because evidence cannot be obtained In its final report it states thatgambling is aimed on in the7hftr of the u r city but insufficient evidence was available to indict 5 indirectly scores the police for not detecting gambling and furnishing the necessary evidence but compliments the Chair man of the Board of Safety and Chief of Police who control the police force The report on gam bling concludes with the information that something is wrong some I where Everybody knows that gambling exists that it is the duty of the police to suppress it and to furnish evidence of all violations of law that these things are not done because something is wrong some where but everybody has not devoted as did the January grand jury a months time and effort to find it out THE BOER WAR The British War Office is in a quandary The Boer war goes on apace and Kitchener keeps calling for 50000 mounted reinforcements Where to get them seems to be the trouble but they must be had It is decided to try and send 30000 men and horses to South Africa as soon as possible The men are to be taken from the troops on home duty in England and even the con stabulary in Ireland are to be called on for a quota but the horsesthe markets of the world and especially the United States are being searched by agents of the British Government that the horses may be supplied promptly- In the meantime the Boers have their own way anddoubtless are making the mostof the timeand opportunityI everywhereexcept tie garrisoned positions held by the in vaders It is more than probable that when the reinforcements arrive there will1 be a repetition of the pre vious campaigns the object being the relief of Kitchener at Pretoria through thousand miles of coun try occupied by a hostile and de termined foe When this is at tempted it may develop what the Boers have been doing all these weeks to prepare for the expected relief column of 30000 mounted men of which at present nothing seems to be known for it is only when the Boers make an attack that their whereabouts are revealed and then they disappear It is how ever known that they have a large disciplined wellclothed and armed force with artillery and cavalry The Boer war is not over it is sim ply on the threshold of another chapter Several weeks ago an ordinance prohibiting pool rooms and provid ing penalties for the same was passed by the lower board of the City Council On its way to the Board of Aldermen and without being presented to that body it was referred to the Grievance Com mittee which upon one pretext or another held it till last Tuesday night when that committee re ported and the ordinance was re ferred back to it The unusual manner in which the ordinance was first referred to the committee the delay and nonaction of the committee for weeks and the refer ence of the ordinance again to this same donothing committee indi cates that the sports have friends even among the Council reformers The fact of the matter is despite their moral professions and apparent efforts to suppress gambling all the politicians of all parties would rather not incur the displeasure of the sporting gentry especially as there lis a municipalll election to be hddnext Jan 41 Hon William Jennings Bryant Who iloJow the editor read publisher t O w r H 7 oa weekly newspaper finds th Ether is a difference between run ning a newspaper aud running for President Thus early he exhibits irritation at the criticisms of con temporary editors Mr Bryan must get over this or quit editing a newspaper for the squibbers must have their fun and the fellow I who gets irritated is sure to attract I all the punsters of the gang who will pepper him with hot shot just to see him jump Many a man of ability and learning in other spheres has signally failed as a newspaper editor though some people believe that newspaper ed itors have the easiest life in the world and anybody can be an editortill they try it and quit in disgust

of talent which is seldom seen in any burlesque organization that has appeared here They are the leaders of their own company appearing at every performance with their famous moving picture songs and taking e leading part in the burlesque which is from the pen of Joe Howard The burlesque is entitled A New York Girl and is in two scenes SheepsbeadLenox Athletic Club New York City In the latter scene the champion Frisco lightweight Jimmy Frank will be intro duced and will dp a lively bout with Joe Howard During the action of the burlesque some stunning costumes and gorgeous scenery will be

Tara The history of missionary labors in every other country Is filled with per secutions labeled with stripes crimsoned with lifes red blood The Irish monarch attached though he was to the religion of his country with its rites and its tradi tions determined to give the newcomer a hearing and such an opportunity of presenting his doctrines as would be sat isfactory to all This King was not afraid of reasoning and discussions He was as well accustomed to them as he was to the sword and accordingly a de bate was ordered between St Patrick and the chief of the pagan priests The dis cussion lasted all day and the Druid being worsted at every ppinl appealed to the supernaturalthat is which of them could exercise the greatest ppwer over the forces of nature The apostle triumphed Did the King then dismiss him indefinitely and like Festus in the case of St Paul tell him that he would hear him at another time No indeed the assemblyI would have the discussions to the end there and then Another champion for the native side was set up for the next day This time St Patrick triumphed more signally than before What then did the assembly fly into a rage and order the apostle to be cast into prison as were his predecessors in Jeru salem did the people cast stones at the holy man as happened to St Stephen Nothing of the kind learning civiliza lion and the habit of thought enabled them to accept the consequences of logic and to accord to the visitor the respect due to his triumphh Men who could act thus can not be said to have been barbarians except in the sense that they were not yet Christians nor ever subject to the eagles of Imperial Rome and for this latter reason people were oftenstyled barbarians in ancient times Another word on this phase of the matter It is often asserted that the Irish were uncivilized before the advent of Christianity because there were occa slonal wars between the minor kings and indeed against the high king Let us see Hundreds of years afterwards the kings of the English heptarchy made war on each other and a thousand years later yet there were long periods of warfare be tween the houses of York and Lancaster for the throne of England there were civil wars in France the German princes warred against each other and against the Emperor the Italian principalities aud republics were fighting each other and not forty years ago there was a very serious civil wur in this country These points of history are recalled not in a spirit of praise or blame or retort I do not poise the balance of justice or injustice in either case but if civil strife was the sign of uncivilization in the one case so it was also in the other if such happenings were excusable In the other countries then let not the finger of scorn be pointed at Ireland because of similar conditions years before Sorc calling what was said a few minutes ago we can safely assert that the Emerald Isle had both learning and civilization at the beginning of its Christian era but this education was true of certain classes the privileged classes onlythe Druids the judges and the poets It was not generally diffused as in aftertime and it was in promoting the general diffusion of education that St Brigid took a distinc tively active part These things I have said and perhaps rather lengthily that you may have a clearer idea of the conditions when your patron saint appeared on the stage of Irish affairs She was well descended well connected being a member of the OConnor family one as respectable as Plantaganet wearing crowns and mitres before the great house of Hapsburg was heard of There is in the Bodleian library iuOxfonlalIIanuscrlpt written by Conor the Red six years before the birth of Christ Belonging to a military race in a civilized country endowed with the edu cation of the higher classes a tall grace ful woman slender and beautiful it is no wonder that she was sought in marriage by men of distinction Marriage is lIon orable in all as St Paul says the Lord raised married people to the diguity of cooperators with Him They are His agents in peopling the world in a certain sense supplying with Him the future in habitants of heaven even though the soul does not come by generation a noble dignity indeed But the Lord gave Brigid a higher vocation still a call to leave father and mother and follow Him and she responded to the call cut herself off from the comforts of home from the consolations of family life from all temporal hops of the future to make more sure her hopes for eternity Little thought she what fame the future had in store for her If she desired the temporal renown that was preparing for her she would have been proud indeed and little worthy becoming such a dis tinguished agent iu the designs of Provi dence No it Is the humble whom the Lord exalts it was the insignificant fish ernien of Galilee whom He chose to be His apostles the weak He set apart to build up the strong and he selected as the Mary of Erin one who in more senses than oue wad like the Mary of all Chris tianityHis own ever blessed mother Brigid who is often styled the Mary of Ireland took up the yoke and followed and learned of Him who was meek and humble of heart and with the compan iions who then and in after years attached themselves to her devoted herself to God ana her neighbor St Brigids advance in the science of the saints was rapid her graces were extraordinary for the Lord prepares His special agents gives them abilities and supernatural strength to fulfill the duties he sets apart for them He

drink to the thirsty to comfort the sorrowful to in struct the ignorant to bury the dead these are corporal and spiritual works of mercy and the life of St Brigid abounded in them Even the power of miracles was given to her she gave sight to the blind speech to the dumb like Elias she walked dry foot over the water Brigid visited all the provinces of Ire land founded convents in them and thus her spiritual children were numbered by the thoasands and they trained in the spirit of their great abbess gave themselves over to works of charity edu cation and philanthropy everywhere for charity seeketh not her own but seeks all reachable good to others like the love of God from which it springs St Brigid was endowed with such a genius for organization and control that she left the convent system of Ireland a unit under one government and animated with the same spirit But while we admire the humility the charity and the zeal which drove St Brigid to spend herself for others there is another virtue which shone with extraordinary splendor in he It is the virtue of chastity for wbicl she is most famous and which seems o be the dominant virtue of the daughters of Erin the wide world over and from generation to generation Thank God that this heroic virtue is not confined to Irish women thank Godthatit has jtsi iilvocates and its brilliant exponents aWQugotletpeO pies too but somehow or other Christian thought seems to presuppose it in the Irish woman it is instinctively felt that purity must be hers Great grand glorious prejudgment expectation demand That purity of thought word and action were eminent in the character of St Bridgid is to be expected otherwise she could not have succeeded in her mission that chastity must have shown forth in her convents also is a necessary conclu aba for otherwise they could not have existed long much less have flourished during long succeeding ages but that Bridgid should stand so classically eminent for this virtue there must have been in her character and demeanor a sacred mark that impressed an exalted respect for this virtue on all who saw her men and women alike and passed down tra ditionally for fifteen hundred years Common experience shows that such as are not pinned down by family cares can do more for the public good than if they were thus constrained Well ordered charity begins at home and the man who has not care of his own house is worse than an infidel and hath denied Jhe faith practically the married couple have divinely imposed duties toward one another and to their families duties which they can not neglect without sin Wherefore those who dedicate their lives to the service of humanity to that hu manity which the Lord has made must be free from marriage obligatfons that is they must not assume them Further they must continually push aside from themselves every inclination that savors of it they must set their hearts love on God and good to the neighbor whether friend or foe they must be disentangled from all that savors of selfishness so that they may throw themselves heart and soul untrammeled and unembarrassed fearlessly bravely into every need and duty that presents itself This manner of life is not for all it is only for a small minority but it is so important in the designs of providence that God not only gives special gras to such as he moves to it but the Blessed Redeemer honored it by selecting His mother from this class Jpleoithis class emulate the angels who neither marry nor are given in marriage but devote their every energy to the service of the Almighty and are in many things tile ministers of His providence to the human race The virgin who is worthy of this calling de votes her whole life to it without hope of earthly reward It is a life of labor of fatigue of selfsacrifice a life of throw Ingofonesself asyayahife Jn which St Brigid was a star of the fist magnitude But all does not end here there is an eternal life beyond the portals of the grave aud there says St John in prophetic vision Iswl1dbeholdja Lamb stood on Mount Slon1 and with Him a hundred and f tfour thousand having Iii lame and thename of His Father writtenpn their foeeh adsAnd I

and beforethe four living creatures and the ancients and no man could say the canticle but the hundred and fortyfour thousand who were purchased from the earth and they are virgins These follow the Lamb whithersoever he goethi Blessed privilege blessed state that prepares for this Is it any wonder that she who or ganized and was the exemplar of this state was so highly honored In Ireland during her long life of seventy years Is it not most natural that her name should- b held in veneration in the Emerald Isle this day and her example should still be followed by tens of thousands of the daughters of Erin wherever they are scattered between the poles of America or on the martyr vastnesses of China St Brigid was well known to St Pat rick and his fellow mirsiouaries who labored to spread the gospel and she was of untold assistance to them in influencing the popular mind to the practices and conditions of Christianity in an age that produced saints without number andwas the foundation of an evangelical race Her activity was so far reaching that she is accounted next to St Patrick himself as a Christianizer of Erin St Columbcill too the apostle of western Scotland was acquainted with her and he and Colutn ban and Feargil and Gall carried her fame and what was of far greater import ance her spirit and influence beyond the Rhine and to Switzerlands highest mountains Her name is impressed on the map of Ireland In England and Scot land too there are places named after her and churches are built under lien invocation wherever in the wide world the children of St Patrick are numerous enough to raise a temple to the Most High It is with authority that I assert that the name of Brigid is spread over the places of Ireland that it appears in Scotch and English geography for wherever the word Bride appears it is but an adaptationan anglicization of the name Brigid The name is prop erly spelled Brigid just as your rev erend pastor insists on spelling it There was a St Bridget a great saint of Sweden but your patroness name must not be confused with liens the Celtic spelling Brigid is pronounced Briyid in Gaelic and is easily slipshodded into Bride The name is derived from the Celtic word brlwhich means strength hence also we have the name Brian a strong man It is a mistake to hold that Kildare forms any part of your patroness name she was named before there was any CII dara or church at the oak Nevertheless Kildare plays an im portant part in St Brigids history In the eighteenth year of her religious pro fession she chose a place about thirty eight miles southeast of Dublin and be gan a convent there and this became her chief place of residence At first the house was rude and simple but in a short time the number of her postulants increased to such a degree the donations of princes and people were so munificent the desire of the Irish to be near a great seat of holiness and learning so strong and the number of pilgrims was so large that a magnificent convent a splendid church and a large cjtygrewupat the site Brigid had 9lfoseu It became an episcopaIcityand the kings made it 1 city of refuge No one could receive military violence there and accordingly during all the internecine wars of the native princes and kings Klldare remained uninvaded and unpolluted From this place St Brigid and her successors watched over and ruled all the nunneries of Ireland for long centuries From here they promoted purity and sanctity and widespread education among women for in ancient times as well as modern a convent is an active center of piety and learning These are duties of nuns the reasons why they exist religion loves and promotes education because it speaks of God and of His power The same faith which animated St Drigldandwhlcb St Patrick planted having taken everlasting roo in Ireland flourished during centuries withstood the shocks of adversity its monasteries and conventsthat is the places which made Ireland the university of western Europe for centuriesappeared every where over the island But when the day of adversity came these sanje monasteries from which civilization went forth as blood from the heart were overturned by the ancestors of those who call them selves the model educators of today the holy inmates and teachers were scattered to the four winds or murdered tile build ings were made mere piles of debris ruin was heaped on ruin education driven out of the country but the faith the living faith lived on in cave and glen and mountainside till now it stands forth again fresh and vigorous always a icient and ever new and Brigids spirit walks abroad and animates and vivifies the convents and monasteries that spring up in every part of the Island of Saints and Scholars No wonder that churches rise in her name for God in other lands her name is glori Otis Her example for purity of thought word and deed is held up to be honored and followed and her love of mercy will lead every votary where she shines like a star resplendent adorning the great reaches of Gods eternal home CATHOLIC MISSION Monsignor Ganibon rector of St Pat ricks church will tomorrow announce that he has secured Rev

Enthusiasm and Twenty Received Into the Church FORMER PREJUDICE IS DIMINISHED Special Correspondence of the Kentucky Irish American SPURUNGTON Kv Feb 4Isaw an item in your esteemed paper two weeks ago referring to the successful missions recently givenat virious places in Taylor county by the Rev Albert Stroebele out present pastor and I thought it might in terest the great number of our former pastors the great majority of them being no doubt readers of the Kentucky Irish American to get a more detailed report of our mission atSpjarlingloji for we think we beat the Calpbel1sville mission as well as the St Matthews The morning sermons were intended for Catholics and the evening sermons only for nonCatholics At both services the church was filled Our Methodist neighbors had a revival going on at their church purposely gotten up by their preacher so as to keep them from attend ing our mission Their evening services commenced at 6 oclock and lasted until 815 Our pastor when he was informed that many of them did not like to disap point theirpreacher and yet were anxious to hear the Catholic doctrine explained consented to wait until their services were over and nearly the whole Method ist congregation came straight to our church after their services had closed Father Stroebele expressed on the first evening his wish of using a Protestantt Bible at these services and on the follow ing evening they brought him the Bible which they formerly had used in their own church It was from this Bible that be proved to them the Catholic doctrine regarding the true church of Christ and the sacraments After the sermon he requested them to sing the hymn Jesus Saviour of my Soul or Nearer My God to Thee which the whole assem bly did standing lie then pronounced his blessing over them and dismissed them He kept this up for five evenings when on account of an attack of the grip he to his and their great regret had to discontinue the evening service being scarcely able to keep up the morning service for the rest of the mission At the close of the mission twenty were received into the church by baptism and the prejudices of the Protestants in gen eral here around have by these services been greatly diminished and now the Father is met and saluted especially by the young people in a most friendly way a great contrast to their former stiff ness As to the result of the mission among the members of the church it was not less successful People who had been given up by our former pastors on account of mixed marriages etc returned and many old people said they had never seen such religious enthusiasm during the existence of this congregation Our pastor ascribed the good results of the mission to the powerful intercession of St Anthony whose devotions and veneration he had introduced here having blessed and put up a beautiful picture of this saint at the opening of the mission The feast of the patron of our church St Francis de Sales was solemnly ob rved with a low mass read by our pas or and high mass and benediction at which the Rev Father McDonaldof Calvary was the celebrant This was the second high mass we had the firstI being sung when the church was
