renewed interest has been awakened President Veeneman presided and when Secretary Score called the roll of branches gratifying reports were made from all but Branch 5 which had sus tained the loss of one of its oldest and most honored members Charles Crush and upon the faces of all were observable traces of sorrow for the loss of a tried and true brother Chairman Edmund Rapp reported all arrangements perfected for the great mass meeting to be held under the auspices of the Central Committee at SL Marys Hall1 on Sunday eveningi May 20 The programmewillbe a9 ri 4anil1 terestmg one embracing riefbutj eloquent addresses by State and branch members and pleasing vocal and instrumental selections rendered by well known Louisville artists Rev Father Westerman was given a hearty greeting when introduced by Chairman Veeneman but the hit of the evening was made by exCouncilman Jack Murphy when he informed the meeting he had a couple of beautiful young ladies not yet quite of age whom he felt confident he would capture before cool weather set in John Gorman of the Fort Wayne branch and Jonathan Thickstuu of Jef fersonville spoke at length of the work being done in Indiana and throughout the country They expressed the belief that within the next five years the mem ship would be increased threefold They reviewed the history of the order the past and present laws and suggested changes in the latter which they believed would prove beneficial These and other suggestions were referred to the delegates to the national convention which opened in St Louis Tuesday

procure the enactment of laws that would if possible make this great fraternal insurance society the strongest and safest in the United State Taken as a whole the meeting was the most enthusiastic held for some time past Besides the foregoing much other business was transacted and upon all sides were heard remarks commendatory of the policy adopted by the State officers to assist branches in securing new mem bers In this connection the Kentucky Irish American would again say its columns are always open for news from all branches and Secretaries should furnish same not later thap Wednesday evenings The Thirteenth Supreme Council of the Catholic Knights of America assembled in St Louis last Tuesday Never before were so many delegates present forty three States and Territories being repse

organizations affairs being highly satisfactory to the membership CHIEF CLERK Frank Cunningham Again Promoted by Southern Railway Prank Cunninghams many friends in local railroad circles and throughout this city generally will read with pleasure the news of his appointment as Chief Clerk to Resident Engineer Milner of the St LouisLouisville lines of the Southern Railway Company with headquarters in the Holland building St Louis This position is one of real importance and carries with it much responsibility The order promoting him was promulgated Tuesday and goes into effect Monday morning when he will assume his new duties Frank Cunninghams friends are proud of his deserved success and are confident that he will ascend still higher He began his railroad career with Auditor McGuire on the Louisville Evansville St Louis railway in 1890 serving with him in various capacities till April 1900 when he went to East St Louis to accept a position under E W Ford the local agent with whom he remained till the first of the present year when he resigned to accept a position with H B Spencer General Agent of this division With his former associates his relations were always cordial and none rejoice more than they over his success The Kentucky Irish American two years ago predicted that Frank Cunningham would yet become prominent iu the railway world and the foregoing is only preliminary to other heights to which he will ascend CARDINAL GIBBONS Sailed Saturday on His Cus tomary Visit to Rome Cardinal Gibbons started last Saturday on his long anticipated visit to Rome He sailed on the Trave for Naples Italy and a large number of clerical and lay- friends were IresemJwlshiJm bo i m iv- toyageT He iiraecompanledron his trip by his secretary Rev W T Russell Father Chapuis of the Catholic Univer sity Bishop Hesltn of Natchez Miss and Father William Fletcher of Mary landIn the course of the farewell audience granted to friends and wellwishers who called on board to see him off the gentle Cardinal took occasion to contradict various sensational newspaper stories pur porting to set forth the purpose of his journey to Rome There is no significance to my visit us has been intimated said he I do not go to see the Pope to discuss the future of the Catholic church in the Philippines I will see the Holy Father of course for I go to Rome for that purpose I may see Archbishop Chappelle the apostolic delegate to the Philippines Cuba and Porto Rico but I have no engagement to meet him at Rome We land at Naples in twelve days I expect to reach Rome about May 24 We will remain there three or four weeks Then we will visit points in Germany Austria and later Norway the land of the midnight sun The last part of our stay abroad will be spent in England We will be gone until late in the summer This we should like to believe ought settle the question of significance It is not likely however that such will be the case Silly cablegrams will probably be in order until he lands in America this autumn The London press may yet represent him as visiting Rome for the purpose of getting himself made Pope In any event lake stories equally ridicu lous have been cabled across In the past All Catholic America wishes the genial churchmen a pleasant jouruey HAPPY UNION Will Hendricks and Miss Alice Brennan Surprise Friends The hosts of friends of Wilt Hendricks and Miss Alice Brennan were pleasantly surprised Wednesday morning whey they learned of the marriage of the well known and popular couple which was solemnized Tuesday evening

Popular Henderson Priest Cele brates Silver Jubilee of Ordination Biiriiop McCloskoy anti Distinguished Citizens VltneslII tho Ceremonies Designed and Built a Beautiful Church Edifice For Ills Flock PARISH SCHOOL HAS GROWN APACE Last Tuesday nt the thriving city of Henderson in Southwestern Kentucky Very Rev Thomas P Tierney rector of the Church of the Holy Name celebrated the twentyfifth anniversary of his ordi nation to the priesthood Because Father Tierney is deservedly popular more than a score of clergymen attended his silver jubilee Solemn high mass was sung in presence of Right Rev George William McCloskey Bishop of the Louisville dio cese A number of distinguished citizens ofevery race and faith were present dur ing the impressive ceremonies- No clergyman has better earned honor than has Father Tierney When he took charge of the Henderson parish many years ago it was struggling to build a new church In addition it was neces sary that better school facilities should be provided His congregation atslliat time was largely composed of poor people To some extent a prejudice existed against Catholics Henderson has always been an aristocratic city and be cause nearly all of the Holy Name flock were possessed of llittle save indomitable energy few or none of them figured in society Because of this it was thought that Catholics as a rule were improvident and ambitionless Yet mark the change made within a few years Father Tierney camea bril Pant scholar a splendid financier a man of polished address and within a few months was hailed as personal friend by a number of the wealthiest and most cul tured people of the city Inside of a de code s lhis congregation lad se eraltiyA ItslerliagrownI wealthier more numerous aud more respected The new church was built and it was built in part at least by the offerings of nonCatholic friends as well as by those of his own people That it is an exquisitely beautiful edifice filled with exquisitely beautiful and costly paintings need only be stated here Incidentally it may be of interest to say that the plan of the building was designed by Father Tierney himself Architecturally it is in splendid taste- Meanwhile priest and people alike have prospered beyond statement Under his supervision the parish school has grown to striking proportions Catholics have come into their proper recognition The struggle is over the future is one ofi noonday promise In brief this is the history of one Catholic parish No won der both people and priest made gladat this silver jubilee There was cause for heartfelt jubilation I OFFICE OF CARDINAL Duties and Dignities Which Now Belong to Cardinal Martinelli The derivation of the word Cardinal is clearly from the Latin cardo a hinge and according to this derivation One bearing this title is one of the perma whichIsays an exchange The origin of the College of Cardinals- is obscure but it is certain that in the year 304 Pope Marcellus instituted parish churches in Rome orHUtles as they were called and committed the charge- of them to the clergy known asHCardl nal priests Rome under Augustus was divided in fourteen regiones and over these and the various charitable and other iustitu tions which they contained were appointed seven deacons the apostolic number afterwards increased to fOur teenwho having a fixed charge became known as Cardinal deacons The Pope was at first the Only Cardinal Bishop but he was assisted in his delib erations by several neighboring prelates and this was the start of the six Cardinal Bishops The number of Cardinals has varied at different periods but there have never been over seventy a number fixed in the year 1680 and consisting of six Cardinall Bishops fifty Cardinal priests and four teen Cardinal deacons The Bishops assume the titles of the old suburban sees of Rome and the priests those of thelllitles or parishes of the Holy City The dignity of the office grew and the duties attached l thereto were dimin fished and finally abolished the Cardinals becontingthe Popes assistants and con atltiiting the Senators of the Roman churchThe majority of the Cardinal have been and are Italians but almost all nations are represented ia the college The creation of new member IU announced by the Tope in conciatory n r t but the name is not made known until the succeeding assembly If resident in Rome he receives the red biretta and the hat is publicly later If non resident the hat pUlin but the new Cardinal must islt the tombs of the apostles at Rome within a year At a third consistory his mouth is shut that is he is forbidden to speak at meeting but at a fourth the prohibition is removed and receiving his ring and dulyIi If a Cardinal be not In deacons orders at Ute time of his receive according to Sixtus V he must such orders at once at the time of a iconclave no such member of the college may vote for the election of a new Pope The famous red hatred to remind the wearer to be ready for martyrdomis- now the distinguished nark of Cardinal rank and is similar to the birede or biretrum once worn py Irish doctors But it would seem that a hat of the same shape was originally worn by the prelates if not by all the clergy The differences of rank were marked by the number of tassels which varied from one to five or sometimes seven of thq Cardinal One writer says the broad biimmed Cardinals hat is derived from the umbrella of the savage and signifies power of dominion The duties of a Cardinal can not be called arduous During the life of a Pope he must take an active part in the government of the universal church and though the Pope is not bound to do so he consults and asksjthe concurrence of the members In its associations with the rest of the world the college forms it is said an unrivaled school in the science and art of governments in all its formsIf Papacy be vacant the Cardinals are responsible for the safekeeping of the church and they must see to the mainte nance of order until the assembling of a new Pope Formerly the Popes were elected on the decision of six Cardinal Bishops with the assent of the Roman clergy the applause of the people and the ratification of theBuiperbr But It will be easily understood that iu time the influence of Cardinal priests and deacons among the clergy became paramount and finally the election or Pope rested in the hands of the Cardinals alone r CHARLES A WILSON Possesses Every Qualification For Judge of the Police Court ue ar esJA i SOn t1iae for the Democratic domination for Judge of the Police Court is

began the study of law devoting his nights to study and his days to work that earned for him and his family their bread With that indomit able will for which he is noted he over came almost

Movement Bone and Sinew Leaving IreH land by Thousands Every Year PLAIN SPEAKING TO THE FARMERS The Dublin Weekly Freeman of late date gives an interesting account of a large meeting in Portndown that was addressed by T W Russell M P The meeting was a great success despite the persistent and venomous attempts of the local Orangemen to upset it But the wretched opposition only served to show with greater force the fact that the people around Portadown are thoroughly in sympathy with the movement for compulsory purchase which is now sweeping over all Ulster The place of meeting was the Ball Alley at the rear of the Young Mens Institute Mr Russell who was warmly greeted said that that constituency was repre sented in the House of Commons by his right honorable and gallant friend Col Saunderson Col Saunderson and he had known each other for fifteen or six teen years and they hall fought side by side in many a fight and they were as good friends today although they dif fered on this question as ever they were before He could not imagine why men who differed upon a practical question should transform themselves into personal opponents His friend Shillington and he fought a big battle in South Tyrone lIe beat Shillington but they never had a word of personal recrimination and they had been as good friends ever since then as they were before it Now they were represented in the House of Commons by a man who never stooped to deceive them He told them frankly he was a landlord and thathe would lui tttiilildIoNa J them frankly that he didnt represent the views of tenant farmers and that he would not pretend to express those views in the House of Commons- A VoiceDown with him Whats the use of shouting down with him now Why didnt you down with hint when you had the opportunity Col Sauudersou had broken no pledge on this question nor he believed upon any other and he Mr Russell had certainly not come there to say one single hostile word about his honorable friend He thought he was a perfect pattern of a man who hits straight out from the shoulder and if the farmers of North Armagh wanted compulsory sale ot some one to vote for it he had given them fair notice that he would not He Mr Rus sell had been charged with confiscation with robbery These were the words the landlords convention applied to him He wished these people would really consider their past Confiscation was an awkwardword for an Irish landlord because threefourths held their lands by no other title than that of confiscation Irish landlords should score that word out of the dictionaries and never repeat it If they passed the best act of Parlia ment the Wit of a man could devise when it came across to Ireland the bot tom would be knocked out of it because these land acts were administered by men who hate them and who believe the landlord was robbed by these acts He had no faith in the administration of the land acts in Ireland He wanted togeJ rid of landlord agent bailiff hangeron land court and land commission all at a stroke He did not want to see the landlords leave the country or any other class God knows too many had left it He thought it was one of the saddest things in the whole history of this country to find that the population since 1864 had dwindled down from eight or nine millions to about five millions The very bone and sinew of the country were leaving in thousands every year What was to become of the country If the stream of emigration continued they would find the land would have to go out of cultivation and they would be left here a nation of old men and women with the bone and sinew of the land flocking to the countries where they could get bread They were there that day to get rid of the incubus that was round their necks Now this thing must be done honestly fairly and squarely and a great deal depended on the attitude of the people of Ulster A VoiceWe never get fair play Ah you never did anything in Ulster peog greatestiHpolitical frauds I ever maw Take the land agitation up to 1881 Did they ever return a man to Parliament who did any agitationroneyetnin North Armagh Not ono This prow lace of Ulster had been concerning itself about dead if glorious issues it had been neglecting the stern realities at house at their own hearthstones Only now when ruin was overtaking then they were going to rise straight for it If tbe people of Ulster Mood IjtiuCl he u IIw 0 counted they would play the man for once in a century if they set aside the dead issues with which they had been humbugged for so long if they thought of their wives and children and all that centers round the sacred word home Parliament would listen to them and Parliament would accede to this right eous demand A JUST DEMAND An Appeal to the Consciences of Thoughtful Louisville- Housekeepers A remarkable circular is just being issued by the Grocers Employes Asso ciation of this city It is an appeal to the women of Louisville to case pur chasing groceries on Sunday Because of this thoughtless proceeding it is alleged several thousands of Louisville merchants and their clerks are compelled to labor on Sunday morning and fore noon Instead of being at liberty to attendchurch or even rest Parts of the appeal are rather striking to some extent pathetic and touching We sub join the following extracts The grocery clerks and butchers have the longest hours of any branch of labor working from 5 a m to 8 and 9 p m and reporting on Sunday until 12 noon Mothers and wives think if you would want your husband or son to give up his much needed rest and recreation which God Almighty ordained should be granted to every living being Think what a disgraceful eyesore the grocery wagon standing before your door on Sun dayisOur men are prevented from attend ing church in order to accomodate the public We are satisfied it is only thoughtlessness on your part Give us your support and we will win Refuse to buy on Sunday and insist on having your meats and groceries delivered on Saturday night Remember as long as you purchase or receive goods on Sun day the clerks will have to work Do not be a party to any transaction that forces men to forfeit their Sabbath DOWN TO WORK Grand Reunion and Picnic of IrishAmericans In August- A the regull xlee t lie risk AmencanSoc etY Thursday niglit with President Joe Nevin in the chair resolu

not thoroughly approve of the terms of the oath framed in the days of Titus Oates The oath of a perjurer is no less vile than that of the reigning King but on bended knees the Prince of the church

highly values the honor recently bestowed on it by the local body of Catholic Knight of America Our thanks go out to our esteemed coreligion ists because of their unexpected ppeciation In truth we are the Tiost grateful because it was uue x ectedThe upward career of any jour il is hard as conditions exist swackys but the path of such a urnal as ours is doubly hard wing to circumstances obvious to ill Because the sincerity of our effort is appreciated is something- f which we feel frankly proud That we have struggled we admit that our humble journal is prosper ing we know that its desire to prove of service was recognized we were not aware Now aware of iit v may we not be pardoned if our gratitude goes out to friends and neighbors who recognize the peril battle we have fought Approba tion is always valued after conflict And let us say that this recognition is doubly appreciated in that it comes from men of Irish birth German birth and French Italian and other This journal will always remain broad as the cause it repre sents The Irish race always has been is now and always will be the friend of every race under the sun In evgv land under the pure heaveu rishPiowTilas GeeII shed for ancestral faith and human rights and from the beginning until the present it has been the foe of oppresion and tyranny We have fought solely for justice and the right to exist and that our effort to be of help is recognized we are too grateful to express in words KEEPING HOLY THE SABBATH A touching appeal is that which the Grocers Employes Association has just made to the women of Louisville The employes are not exorbitant in their demands they speak no harsh words of those who employ them Possibly they realize that their employers themselves would prefer to close doors on Sun day yet are precluded from doing so by customers who insist on being servedNine times out of ten Sunday labor is caused by people who iisist on buying If they were not forced to do so by the demand we enture that few grocers would care to labor till noon or during any part of the day As it iAthe thoughtlessness of persons who could just as easily make their pur chases on Saturday evening is forcing hundreds of merchants and hkteir employes to stay away from church Sunday after Sunday and yet people lament that religion is ceasing to exert a beneficent influ ante on the cot ciences of men What else might we expect The organization making the appeal is addressing the right Arties Practically the whole blame rests on those who purchase Bo long as the great consuming public insists on purchasing or receiving goods on Sunday the clerk will have to work and incidentally their employers will have o work even though ever so much Igainst their desire We anticipate j may take some time to awaken fcblic conscience to the injustice ce bOth merchants and their men I the motive is worthy and the mate effect one beneficial alike civilization and Christianityu pe who purchase groceries on 0 Sunday have no desire to make men desecrate the Lords day 3yet such obviously is the result STILL MAKING POPES In its issue of Wednesday morning the esteemed Commercial of this city reproduced from the Nashville American a peculiarly scholarly article entitled How Popes Are Chosen To the surprise of most people the Nashville journal asserts that confirmation is at hand of that London dispatch which declared that Leo XIII had chosen his own successor This evidence is announced contained in a book soon to be issued in France the author being Abbe Sabbatier Canon of the Roman Catholic Archbishopric of Paris It would probably surprise the notorious Paul Sabbatier to learn that he is posing before America in the role of a Catholic canon specially canon of the great See of Paris Hitherto he has imagined himself a pretty good Mason and slightly opposed to the Papacy From that point of view his forth coming book may possess a certain amount of interest to people of his class yet we fear it can not 1be regarded as an authority by Catho lics generally It is amusing how merrily this work of Popemaking goes on in the offices of our great secular journals Whoever wishes- to purchase newspaper Popes by the dozen ought apply while the griddle is hot INTERNATIONALEXHIBITIn the Papacy sitting at Rome quietly exercising the temporal power Pius IX governed the Papal States temporally as well as the whole world spiritually With exception- of a few restless spirits who desired that which he had there was peace throughout Italy The country was almost as stainless as crimeless Ireland is today and within Rome and without all was well Yet this very peace filled Protestant Europe with disgust Tile Papacy must be despoiled it must be humbled the Pope robbed and made prisoner In this devils work AngloSaxon Englandthe centuries long oppressor of the Catholic Keltand Masonic Germany elected to take leading part They were helped by our own United States Germany Britain America became hotbeds of plots against the Pope From London Mazzini sent forth his intriguers throughout the world Officials high in power in England Germany America aided his plans The world now knows the result The Pope was despoiled Victor Emanuel ascended the Italian throne a King by right of worldwide plot and treason and robbery the Pope was a prisoner in the Vatican and throughout the Protestant world ran the cry The Papacy has fallen I That was in 1870 Thirtyone years have elapsed The Pope is- yet a prisoner The devil of revolution socialism anarchism Protestantism and Masonism has had- leave to rage He has raged He- has labored like Hercules to create a new order in an ancient land He- has expelled religious orders sequestrated convents pulled down oldI monasteries shut up churches and driven little children out of- Catholic schools And with what result A cable from over sea this- week makes it plain Says the dispatch Describing what he calls the ominous increase of crime in Italy the Rome correapdndent of the Lon- dotlJiily Mail says that in 89- 9thenumberQf criminals before A Q Q Italian courts was 280000 In t9oo it was 530000 For one murder in England there are a hundred in Italy The correspondent adds that the causes are labor agitation iso cialism strikes hunger and tthe spread of all forms of nervous disease Thus do the nations that schemed- to despoil the Pope receive an iac count of their work in the form of an exhibit of Italys crime Not only this but wherever an anarchist raises his hand against a crowned ruler of earth investiga tion shows hire an Italian The nations that sinned are receiving their punishment and will receive- it yet more and more Kings and secret agencies may scheme the destruction of the Papacy but the hand of God is behind the veil of destiny and the punishment He ial lots to infamy in time will become manifest to the eyes of all As it is the nations are exhibiting their shame SIGN OF DECADENCE Some one aptly has said that the great American sin is that of impurity Certainly there is much in our civilization which goes to show the assertion true We talk much of the decadent Latin races if we do not come upon a decadent epoch of our own all signs must fail Since the Worlds Fair the devil of impurity seems to have captured our public perform ances almost completely In the latest issue of the Catholic Union and Times of Buffalo for instance- we find the following- I understand that the Pan American Midway last Sunday presented a scene that for vulgarity and looseness would bring a blush to the most toughened cheeks of Courtstreet habitues If there is not a limit to salacious conduct even in a free country then it is about time somebody called a halt It is regrettable of course that such orgies obtain on the grounds- of the PanAmerican Exposition or elsewhere yet experience has proved to many reformers or those who honestly attempt reform that the business of calling a halt doesnt pay Because this is true attempts- in that direction become less and less frequent Nowadays few care to risk the utterances of moralists lest their pocketbooks may be hurt Where it all may end we know not we can only be sorry that such conditions have arrived FORCE THAT HURTS The great struggle now in progress between the Union Traction Company of Albany N Y and its employes the striking streetcar conductors and motormen again brings thenotorious Pinkerton force to the front Besides thousands of State guards hundreds of policemen and nearly a half hundred armed deputies the street railway has deemed it expedient to engage the services of 300 Pinkerton de tectivesAt distance it is of course impossible to decide who is in the- right and who is in the wrong in- the struggle yet it is not difficult to declare our firm conviction that employing the Pinkertons is a mis take Corporations by this time ought have learned that men who- labor detest alike the Pinkertons and their methods Their very presence arouses feelings that ought not be aroused Over and over it- has been shown that they excite violence where none would have existed without their aid Nineteenth century civilization needs many things but it scarcely needs- the Pinkertons as the latter have- come to exist today It may be all right to drive cattle- stock hogs and sheep through the- streetsof a country village but not in a city and we believe Louisville- is a city Such it practice in a city interferes with traffic endangers life limb and property is an annoyance and nuisance which should be suppressed Cattle are- driven through Main street our principal business thoroughfare daily although a boy has been killedl several persons injured trafficinterrU ledaJK1laat week l cattle dashed through a 50 plate glass in the lladies entrance of the Louisville Hotel What are our Councilmen thinking about to permit such a thing to continue The matter has been brought to their attention repeatedly Is I the Bourbon Stockyards Company bigger than the city This should be stopped entirely Cattle or stock should not be allowed driven through any of the streets at anytime There is no necessity for it and it is a nuisance and danger Cattle and stock should be haltered and led throng our streets as is done ic other cities This may prove a litte inconvenient for the cattlemen but other people have rights as well The Councilmen should be made to understand that they represent all the peoplenott- he cattlemen alone The latest dispatches are to the effect that Mrs McKinleys condi

the Zoological Gardens and Summer Theater are making that resort the most deservedly popular of any that has ever been opened in Louisville The numerous cages containing rare and costly animals are now beautifully lit up by incandescent lights and these favorite attractions can be viewed to the best advantage The lack of sufficient light on the grounds last Sunday was quite a disadvantage to the management as it prevented the many clever vaudeville performers from presenting the splendid bill which had been arranged for the edification of the public All this however has now been remedied and every thing is operating on the most prosperous plan The grounds are being beautifully laid out and many plants and flowers are being added daily to beautify the park Many new animals and birds are being received and the Zoo will before long rank among the most complete in the West The Ferris wheel is proving a great attraction and many people young and old alike are taking aerial journeys on this gigantic gyrator The little ones in particular are finding unequalled amusement in riding on the merrygo round and viewing the mammoth cage containing the happy family of monkeys and apes The vaudeville specialties for the coming week will include the marvelous Davenports greatest of all aerial gym nasts whose performance will be pre sented in the open air DeMora and Gracetta the wonderful gymnasts and hand balancers have been reengrged for the coming week as have also OBrien and Herold the amusing sketch artists Numerous other singers and dancers and comedians will fill the bill

The contracting carpenters have changed their attitude since last week and are now endeavoring to organize a scab union of carpenters to aid them in their fight against organized labor This will be a unique union to say the least find the workman will get the hot end of every tool handled These foes of labor will control the body and carpenters will only too soon realize the mistake of being hoodwinked by glittering promises of fair treatment by those who only last week declared themselves opposed to any and all labor organizationsWe but wonder how any num ber of sensible men can give up their affiliation with as great and powerful an organization as the Brotherhood of Car penters and Joiners which has power to enforce its demands and be brought straightway to swallow the bait adroitly thrown out by men who desire only to serve their own selfilsh ends One pur pose alone Is apparent to destroy or cripple the effectiveness of the carpen ters union The new association is a lure and those who take membership therein will live to be sorry It promises fair only on paper Wife Heary what was the matter with you when you came in lat night Huiband Nothing that I know of Why
