Leo the Subject of the f Finest Lecture lIe Ever Delivered His Powerful Analysis of the Past and Present of History PROMINENT CLERGYMEN PRESENT Ai St Brigids In the Highlands last Sunday night Patter P M J Rock de livered an impressive lecture on Leo XIIl and the spirit of the age Father Rock as is well known in Kentucky is an orator of splendid ability and this lecture is probably one of the finest which lie has ever delivered It Is unnecessary to say that St Brigids was filled We venture a larger or more appreciative audience has uever gathered beneath the roof Of all who listened none hind any cause to go away disappointed In introduction the reverend lecturer declared that Leo XIII was the greatest statesman and scholar of the world In rapid order lie dwelt successively on his boyhood and young priesthood steps of preparation for the great place this Pope today occupies in the sphere of the worlds activities told how he became Nuncio Bishop and Archbishop always gathering fruit from each experience always ripening until he watches today at ninetyone the spiritual father and high shepherd of 300000000 people univer sally honored and regarded as one of the great philanthropists and theologians of the gea poet nearing his century of years a moralist whose utterances are heard with respect by all the learned of earth whenever he speaks Touching the Papacy Father Rock showed the beneficent influence it has exercised upon each successive age Graphically he told how in the early ages Italy was saved from fierce North ern invaders by the heroic conduct of ropeGre orand how forgetful of tbls and a thousanu obiactions ssiittr on the part of those who have occupied Peters chair from the dawn of Chris tianity modern secret societies in Italy and everywhere are scheming to destroy the church which Christ established how Italian civilization itself is being destroyed through their machinations how property is no longer safe how the Pope himself is kept prisoner when of right and dignity he should be allowed to perform his function as father of all un trammeled as even Bismarck long ago admitted was his right Adverting to his career and his uni versal solicitude Father Rock related how notwithstanding the wrongs he had suffered Leo XIII is ever watchful of the spiritual and material interests of humanity how his various encyclicals have one unvariable tendency to make men better juster and nobler spiritually and morally lIe alone among states men has dared to point out the right way on the labor question and on the ques tion of socialism proposing remedies which If universally adopted would result in curing the evils which infest society Stated he is alternately called the poor mans Pope and the Pope who urges that justly obtained wealth is entitled to emption from the brands of anarchism and destructionism just father desir ing justice to prevail among all his chil dren In conclusion the speaker drew a sublime picture of this grand old man sitting throned although a prisoner high above all Kings Emperors Kaisers or Czars the ruler of 300000000 people composed of every race and tongue earth knows From every point ofview the lecture was a most impressive one and a powerful analysis of the past and present of history and the conditions and tendencies of the age It was a remarkable lecture and the eloquence of the speaker in perfect keeping with the subject dis cussed The devotions were conducted by Rev Father Murphy qf the Cathedral and within the sanctuary were many priests among them Rev Fathers Fowler Weiss Walsh Gastaldi and Connolly and Mr Edward McDonogh The singing and solos by the choir were excellent the writer having seldom heard any more artistically rendere- dSERIOUSLY INJURED i1 Mrs Ellen Scanlon

Institute Eight years ago a club of Catholic young men living iu the West End of this city applied for and received a charter from the Grand Coun cil of the Young Mens Institute They named the new organization Mackin Council after the late Rev Father Mackin who was at that time pastor of St Cecilias church From a membership of twenty men at the time the charter was issued the council has increased tp 285 their present number Shortlyafter forming the Council a residence was rented on West Main street between Twentyfifth and Twenty sixth which was used as a club house but after a few years the membership had increased to such an extent that a larger and more comodious house was necessary A few months ago Mackin Council purchased from the Evans estate the handsome twelveroom resi dence on Twentysxith street between St Cecilia and Slevin which has been remodeled and is now used as their club house the picture of which appears with this article It is on a lot 128x200 feet The ground floor is fitted up with spacious parlors and reading rooms while on the second floor are the billiard poollbath and ladies reception rooms On the third floor is the gymnasium and meeting hall- Although the council is composed of men of every nationality such repre sentative IrishAmericans as Frank D Lyons James T Shelley V B Smith Richard W Galway and Daniel W Cunlff have at different times been elected to the Presidency and to their efforts is due much of the success Mackin has enjoyed This council has the dis tinction of furnishing the first Supreme Secretary and a member of the Board of Directors of the first Supreme Council George Lautz the present Grand Secre tary of the Kentucky jurisdiction is also a member of Mackin Conncil The members are now making exten sive arrangements

SPLENDID EXHIBITION 1 Sowing School Established by Ladies of Std Josephs Aid Society 1 The Cathedral for Catho lic children sewiu1school reached quite extensive estab lished six years ago by the ladies of St Josephs Aid Society Previous to that time numbers of Catholic children from the different parishe attendedsewing schools connected with Protestant churches and these n ble hearted ladies feeling it a duty to care for their own started this work at the Cathedral espe cially for Catholic children There has never been at any time a scarcity of children the enrollment each year being over one hundred but during the past year or two It has been almost impossible to secured teachers enough 1 It may be that a sufficient number of Catholic ladies would be glad to help in this good work if it were only called to their Whatever the reason for this lack of interest it would be a great pity if the school were to close for lack of teachers and the children drift back into sewing schools where they do not belong The enrollment for the past year was 125 and there was an excellent average attendance This school closed last Saturday afternoon with the annual exhibition of work which showed that the progress made by the children was wonderful If more people would only see this work they would become inter ested as it was really surprising how six teachers could accomplish so much with such a large number of children to look afterEspecially of mention was the fancy work done by Mrs Dr Kampf class The work done by these little children would be a credit to grown women and would have to be seen to be justly appreciated The teachers who have been most faithful during the year are Mrs Dr Kampf mueller and Misses Rose Quinn Anna Venhoff Mary Smith Estella Nether land and Edith Ferris The children were placed in divisions the following carrying off the prizes First divisionMargaret Hopkins Mattie Vaughan Mildred Simon and Imelda Shea Second Lepping Mel tie Percival Josephine

most distin guished sons reciting their virtues and keeping alive memories that otherwise might perish Robert Emmet Curran Grattan Wolfe Tone OConnell these are names that should last so long as blood runs warm in Irish veins The Louisville Hibernians year after year remind our Irish people that they come of a race that has a glorious history The poet they honor next Tuesday night on his part did much for the glory of Ireland He wrote Lalla Rookh an unIrish poem it is true He produced a large amount of work that had no reference whatever to the hopes and dreams of his people but it is also true that his best his most distinctive work his Irish Melodies was done through motives of patriotism so noble they seem almost holyDy fitting exquisite Eng lish words to old Irish melodies there is no doubt whatever but he thereby preserved to all time a vast amount of old Irish music that otherwise in all probability would have been lost At the same time the fire and patriotism of the new world served to awaken and stimu late thousands who then beheld Ireland passing through one of the darkest hours of her seven centuries of agony ForI this especially Moore the son of a poor Dublin weaver

Staying Qual- Ities That Insure Success It is pleasant to be able to state good things of a candidate who offers for office Mr E B Casler who is now offering for Assessor of Jefferson county subject to the action of the Democratic party is a young man In every way trustworthy He has fought his own way to the front and has staying qualities on which all rightsuccess in life is based In Mr Caslers case these would appear inher ited He is of Irish descent on one side his grandfather being Stephen Brannon an exile who was forced to leave Ireland on account of having taken part in the famous rebellion of 98 Mr Casler him self is a son of Smith Casler for ten years Democratic Executive Committeeman Personally the gifted aspirant is a member of the Ancient Order of United Workmen and is at present Deputy Grand- Master of that order for the State His sympathies have always been on the side of those who toil and than he laboring men can scarcely find a representative worthier If elected Mr Caslers deputies in office will include four popular and wellknown young IrishAmericans John Kindrigan Edward Malone Edward Hol loran and John J Barry It is needless to add that his chances for success are flattering GETHSEMANI JTfn ril Gov Beckhams Wife Second Lady to Enter Its Portals On June 4 the wife of Governor Beck ham will visit Gethsemanl Abbey NelI son county this State She will be the second woman ever admitted to the abbey proper the first being Mrs JIProctor Knott who visited there onceii when her husband was Governor I Quite naturally the event will be an I extraordinary one at the old abbey Right Rev Abbot Edmond Obrecht has asked the Governor to invite twenty of his male friends who may wish tojj accompany him and will invite twenty friends of his own After the abbey hiss I been gone over an elaborate dinner will J be served The afternoon will be spent in visiting the extensive abbey grounds Already elaborate preparations are being made to give the distinguished guests aI royal entertainment such as the present abbot well knowshow to set forth The rule of the Trappist order is veryI rigid with regard to the admission of women For centuries in France where the order originated no woman has been allowed to pass the portals of any Trap pist abbey unless she happens to be the wife of a reigning King or Governor of a province It is not true as generally asserted that royal descent alone will admit otherwise our own Gethsemanl would or could be constantly filled with the better halves of numerous ONeill OBriens McMahons and OConnors and with those of such princes as the McDermotts ODohertys and Others In this country the rule has been changed so as to admit the wives of actual Presi dents of the land and Governors of the State No doubt Mrs Beckham will highly enjoy her visit ii RIGHT MAN IN RIGHT PLACeI In his speech In the jurypacking debate in the British House of Commons says the Irish World Thomas W Russell said It is the same thing that

And when another Ulster member a Tory said it was the first time he had heard a Unionist member tell the House that the Union had beenII obtained by bribery and corruptionII Russell replied that his authority for the statement was the distinguished member for Trinity College who had stated that the Union was carriedwith every circumstance of moral turpitude The distinguished member for Trinity

Papal jubilee procession of jast Sunday ought if it does not put nonCatholic Louisville tto thinking seriously Some estimates assert that not less that fourteen r thousand Catholic men passed down I the city streets in line of march It dT was in any case an unprecedented overwhelming spectacle It made kin at once and finally the Catho I strength in Louisville and the Ivor and intensity ofthat strength religious body no quasidenom ional secret society in the city ble to turn out such force Vnd yet notwithstanding the gnificence of this outpouring- se familiar with the facts assert it even this line of march could ve been increased several thou nd more At a low estimate that e would number at least five lousand Many through age o rt infirmity are compelled to stay a home other many are engaged iiin making the jubilee privately A few we regret to say appear neglectful or unappreciative of the benefits which may be received front such sources however a stilt t greater spectacle could be drawn This absence aside the over whelming torrent pouring down I the street in the broad glare of day inevitably must convince those out- sidet the church that zeal is no- dead t among our Catholic men that t religion is not left to be practiced by women and children as from p time to time the nonCatholic pul jMtaseerts Those serried thou sands going forward under the banner of Christ are a protest in the sight of all against the unfaith of the age Like the Christians oJ f old during the throes of bloody l persecution they dare to stand up before Ca sar and proclaim the faith that is in them Saxon and Teuton and Kelt Italian and Syrian and Pole Ethiopian Span- iardi and Greekcombined they show that the church in Louisville visa vital organism a united host and at same time present an assur ance of still greater growth Over whelming as are the present jubilee processions how insignificant will they appear beside those of fifty years hence 1RANTED A PRIMARY T K Since our last issue the various Democratic Committeemen have f ordered a primary election We j believe the decision the correct on- eWeareI certaim it was the one desired by the rank nnd file of the meti who do the voting f Incidentally it may be observed that an overwhelming majority of the candidates favored the primary system From this as it appears fto us the politicians who presume to think themselves wiser than the people might profitably take a hint With the solitary exception pf a group of professional slatefixers the people of Louisville are heartily ired9fconventlons They have j frown weary of perpetual jugglery ffnd injustice They desire fair dealing both in nominating candi jiBales and in electing them It is ptrtheil wishes should be- Jaeec f And this brings us to remark that 9 time fis coming if Its has not already come when it will be in I the power of a few to defeat the jirlstt of the many In other expects a large proportion of the Democratic voters of Louisville yve rights which the politicians n not much longer afford to ore Politics may be a game chance se frequently alleged onesty is the atpolicyeveil- s1 of chance We can not n hope to escape strife and wrangling so long cs an overwhelming major ity of those who vote feel that injustice is done them year after year CASE OF FATHER PHILLIPS The sensation of the week in the secular press has been the mysterious death of rather E S Phillips of Hazelton Pa Father Phillips on account of his phenomenal suc cess in settling labor troubles in his section has gradually come to be known as 1 the miners friend It He disappeared from his parish on April 27 and last Friday his body was found in a small room belong ing to Dr It Kirk Stanley a mas sage specialist living in an obscure flat in New York The facts in the case already have been exploited in the daily papers The mystery sur rounding its recovery has been one of the sensations of the hour We are glad to find the latest reports clear up one charge frequently alleged by the dispatches viz that Father Phillips went to the rooms of this pretended specialist prompt ed by immoral motives Stanleys own attorney and himself have made a statement that any such report is false although it is alleged that he was and for several days had been heavily under the influence of liquor It remains to be seen whether or not even this charge can be proved Time may show that it can not Our own conviction is that Father Phillips adjourned to Stanleys roams with intention of receiving treatment at the hands of this pre tended specialist It is known that he was a firm believer in massage While there he may have died from the effects of unskilled service owing to existing heart trouble or he may have been killed for the money which he might reasonably be supposed to carry about him Owing to the mysterious disappearance of Stanleys alleged wife the day succeeding the unhappy clergy mans death the latter appears to us the more reasonable theory just now We have no fear whatever but the truth will soon be known Such tragedies seldom occur but they are shocking whenever they do If indeed Father Phillips drank as charged the fact is un fortunate but not half so appalling as the first charge urged against him by the lying massage doctor Evidently the testimony of such a mauls unworthy of credit Because this is true the proper course is to believe no statement until the facts are all laid bare Similar charges of immorality were urged against the unfortunate Father Riegel of Philadelphia last February it mutt be remembered yet today the chief conspirators in his sudden taking off admit that they lied and that Father Riegel was not guilty as as serted They too schemed to dishonor his memory but the truth would not remain hid Until stronger proof is forthcoming we prefer to believe Father Phillips innocent Here we predict that time will show him a victim as al ready it has done in the case of the Philadelphia priest The fate of these two men however i may prove a warning to others to steer clear of unknown quarters and dangerous characters in our great cities The devil is always seeking opportunity to destroy both priest and the priests fair fame UCENSINOTHEDIYIL The Catholic Journal of Memphis makes a spirited comment oa the demand fora wideopen tows Under existing conditions it kdare that whoever seeks vice or immorality or dissipation can find it without trouble and deplores the suggested further relaxation of the laws regulating the same Since a similar demand exists here and since the evils to follow are so clearly pointed out we deem iit well to reproduce the more striking paragraphs of the editorial Says the Catholic Journal- No American public man of any respectability goes In for making our cities more wide open than they are Yet the lewd element the sporting element and the gambling element bridle under such regulations as exist They want our municipal officials to formally declare the town wide open It wilt bring trade they say it will adver tise the place Let the average citizen clearly under stand what a wide open city means It means that vice and immorality ahal not alone be tolerated but that it ball be permitted to go out on the streets and solicit trade It means concert saloons and all nlght resorts It means the use of knockout drops and sandbagging It means unregulated dances in liquor resorts where the daughters of the work lug people are allured to their own sorrow It means the evolution of callow boys into flannelnecked sports It means easy access to shell games poolin resorts and cheap gambling places where young men and boys are temple to lose their wages and to lay the founds tion of bad habits and dishonest methods It means all this and a good deal more that can not be as much as mentioned among Christians The least devout of us are accustomed to say in the Lords prayer Lead us not into temptation We ask that wand e our sons and daughters be protected from the temptations to vice and sin which may exist about us How Insin cere we are if while asking God to lead us away from temptations we never theless vote for a wideopen town vote to allow vice to flaunt itself and advertise itself vote to allow traps to beset for our brother man and for the undoing of his sons and daughters vote to license the devil vote to weaken the force of law and to ridicule the precept of GodDoes not a goodly part of this ar raignment apply to Louisville OJ course it applies nlso to every larg city in the country but with greate force here perhaps than elsewhere Wherever such conditions exist however those responsible for their existence must reflect that through this advocacy of a fuller license modern civilization is being de stroyed If we do not mean to return to outright paganism it iis time to call a halt In allowing traps to be set for the ensnaring o f our neighbors sons and daughters we set them for the ensnaring off our own RECENT DEATHS Mrs Margaret

advantage in the pretty soft shades of redThere is nothing else in the line of lpet- ticoats to attractive as those which are trade of white lawn baptistc and nain sook trimmed with exquisite embroidery and lace and they are to be very much worn In spite of our fondness for silk skirtsOne rather odd fancy this season is the use of colored bands of fine batiste on 1a white gown Some or the fancy white blouse waists show this treatment the batiste In pale blue forming a band on the edges down either side of a tucked white vest A feature of trimming which has bios somcd out in many ways

else quite so varied and con spicuous as the separate waist which Is uiultipled a thousand times In every die rection you chance to look The fact that it has become common does not seem to injure it like most other things iu fashion for it is more worn than ever before Even the plain shirt waist must fit the figure and boast of correct lines or it hiss no place this season CONVERTS IN IRELAND It seems as if the day was not far his tant when Ireland will be completely Catholic front end to end In Ulster the church is at present making great head way A book entitled Some Notable Conversions in the County of Wexford has just appeared Tune author Father Kirk tells in a simple unaffected way the story of his conversion to the Catho tic faiths It is we believe generally thought that the number of Protestants who are received into the church in Ireland is very small But this supposition is scarcely correct Ireland supplies quite a considerable number of converts and it would no doubt be still larger if the efforts made to win nonCatholics were more systematic Father Kirk who was a Protestant curate at Gorey in the County Wexford seems from the earliest days of his min istry to have been drawn toward the Catholic church Others in the same coun ty were similarly inclined about the saute time and in his pages he give us glimpses of the progress they made toward rev ligious truth Closely associated with his own conversion in a very special way was that of Mr and Mrs Ram mid their family Mr Rant was the heir of Rams fort in County Wexford n descendant of the first Protestant Bishop of Items A legend dating front early times ran to the effect that the first owner of the prop erty who returned to the Catholic faiths would lose all his Irish possessions and the legend has been fulfilled to tile letter the temporal loss being store than compensated for by the spiritual gain When Father Kirk first visited the district ni A Catholic priest and he aud Mr Ram drove to the local Catholic church the people la showing their joyswould do with nothing leN than the strains of R brass heath Their Intention was uo doubt good but they gave the newly otdftltmllprkat who had no
