est Poet- ElonrioittAddresses on the Life and Times of Tort Moore Well Known Ladles and Gentle men Discourse Irish Melodies HIBERNIAN HALL WAS THRONGED Division 1 of the Ancient Order of Hibernians had a most delightful song feast and galaxy of speeches last Tuesday evening at Hibernian Hall on Market street in honor of Thomas Moore the Irish poet A splendid attendance was present and the laughter and enthusiasm contagious Chairman Tynan of the Entertainment Committee requested President Thomas Dolan to introduce the speakers of the evening and those announced to take part in the musical programme That President Dolan per formed this duty in a most delightful manner was the verdict of all present The first number was Mr James Barrys address on the life and times of Moore relating how the great poet of Ireland was born in poverty though descended from an ancient princely line how he obtained his education under difficulties how his genius early mani fested itself how he steadily grew into fame until at last all the great and titled English society opened its doors to him how he became one of the great men of that age the associate of Byron Scott Campbell Rogers and of Lords Dukes Earls even royalty itself The address was an excellent bit of sketching and won the speaker much applause Succeeding this Mrs William Meehan sang The Harp That Once Thro Taras Halls which evoked a round of applause On her recall Mrs Meehan sang The Last Rose of Summer which also produced hearty appreciation Next came Miss Nellie Fiuegan with a piano solo Come Back to ErinMiss Pinegiui possesses an exquisite touch and her technique is excellent She was the recipient of a number of deserved com plimentsOfficer Tom Fitzgibbons sang two Irish songs one comic the other sentimental in his inimitable way Following Mr Fitzgibbons Thomas Clines rendered Moores ever popular Minstrel Boy a splendid voice Miss Lee Ijames then delighted the audience with her singing and provoked hearty applause- Mr David OConnells address on the Hibernians was next in order and proved an able and scholarly summary of the work accomplished by the order in ancient and modern times In the opinion of many this address was one of the most thoughtful features on the evenings programme This closed the literary and musical feast A more substantial but not more enjoyable feast followed in the form of delicately served refreshments At the conclusion of this there was music and dancing in which youth beautyand happy laughter mingled until a late hour Thus passed another pleasant evening spent with Moore GROWS IN FAVOR Catholic Union Remits All Dues Till January Next The regular monthly meeting of the Catholic Union Tuesday night was very satisfactory Owing to counter attrac tions in Catholic circles that evening the attendance was not so full as usual nevertheless those present showed great enthusiasm and were much encouraged Excellent addresses were made by Messrs Newton Rogers Michael Reichert and Harry Veenemann the former dele gate to the Catholic Congress held in Chicago in 03 in the course of which each speaker pledged the union heartiest assistance and support There is no fear but the Catholic Union composed as it is of the Catholic societies of the city federated together soon will become one of the most important factors in Catholic society life Every day it is gathering strength and the purpose and integrity of its membership can not be questioned A splendid attendance is expected next month KNOCKS OUT FIGHTS The disorderly scenes which disgraced the Auditorium last Friday night and at times threatened serious consequences made it necessary for Mayor Weaver to call a halt on the prize fighting game in this city These affairs have been pulled off under the guise of boxing contests but according to published report each and every oue was nothing more nor less than a brutal and bloody prize fight whereby certain parties with a pull were enabled 10 work a graft on the public The Mayor does not object to legitimate athletics but has expressed himself M determined that there shall be ao more prize fightiDjf during hig admin r L istration This decision though some what tardy is commended by the best people of Louisville and any violator of the law should be sent before the grand jury ROGER MGRATH Worthy Young Irishman Is a

his merit deserve- sGREATER IRELAND A Book on the PreColum bian Discovery of America The June issue of the Catholic World contains an article on PreColumbian America It is a review of the facts presented in Father DeRoos now famous book America Before Columbus and Incidentally refers to a claim frequently made that St Brendan discovered this continent centuries before Columbus was bornIt may interest Kentucky Irishmen to learn that in the Polytechnic Library here there is an old Latin and Danish volume named Antiquitates Ameri cans which distinctly throws light on this claim It was issued some years ago by the Royal Society of Denmark and contains the Latin account of Thorfinn Karlsefnes discovery of Massachusetts together with numerous other historic papers preserved in Latin of the discovery of Iceland Vineland Greenland and other points by the Norsemen from the year A D 860 to A D 1007 Very curiously the very first saga relates that when Iceland was discovered in 860 a number of Irish people were there with their priests books bells vestments and crosses They retired before the Norsemen and many articles of value Jell into the hands of the Scan dinavians A later saga relates how some years after blown by a great wind Thorfinn was thrown upon a Southern coast presumably Florida and there found Irish people existing in con siderable numbers Among them was a Danish nobleman of much importance who thirty years previously had lived in Dublin during the time of the Danish occupation having been forced to leave the Irish capital because of his love for princeLearningto her a cup of gold and a ring together with an account of his present situation all of which were In time duly delivered The account is very straightforward and certainly authentic and is probably the first romance of the New WorM in existence The Irish told Thorfinn they had been in the country many years and already had given it the name of Irland et Mikla or the Greater Ireland It is a fact well known to archaeologists that to this day Keltic crosses frequently are found in Indian mounds from Kentucky to the Gulf They are found also in the prehistoric ruins of Mexico and Yucatan incoutestably indicating that the St Brendan account is not a myth Those who assert as is done almost daily that the Irish ought to go If they under stand Latin ought themselves go to the Public Library and learn that the Irish have a place iin the country by right of discovery They will findthe Antiqui tates Americana a quaint old book and full of intcreet LAWN EUCHRE A lawn euchre

members of the different sodalities- In no city was jubilee entered into with a more pious spirit than Louisville It would be hard to calculate the number who are making the fifteen visits to each of the four designated churches but it is to say the number include all except those whose occupations are such that they can not The arrangements at all the churches have been perfect but perhaps the most pleasing feature was that at St Patricks where the thousands were greeted each Sunday by the childrens choir singing most excellently beautiful hymns as the throngs entered and departed This choir of littje people is perfectly trained by MisS Keyer won much praise from all sides L CATHOLIC ACTOR RETURNS After au absence of one year Mr Neh Webb will return tomorrow on a visit to relatives

Chair man McGinn in a few happy and well chosen words gave a brief history of the Central Committee and the objects of this pleading with the ladies to insist upon their fathers husbands brothers daughters and sweethearts be coming members One of the most thoughtful addresses westerImaI McGinn to welcome the Knights and their friends In opening Fattier Wester mann observed that societies have become great moral forces The Catholic Knights of America is a society whose object is praiseworthy its mission sacred The parent called upon to practice economy and support his family This is a Jaw of God When iGpd calls the father the Catholic Knights arise Pad preserve those left from hunger and want This mission of Catholic Knight hood is sacred What the Catholic Knights have done iHthis way is not only on the books of the society but also the books of Divine Providence The Catholic Knights of America desires active embers not drones who will make known the pur poses of the society There

address of the evening He prefaced his remarks with the statement that it was a pleasure to him to see such a gathering of ladies present to grace and I adorn the meeting After some happy I references and an interesting story hisii remarks were directed to the benefits of membership in the noble order of which he was the head in Kentucky To the devoted wife and loving children there can be no more sorrowful period than when returning from the funeral of the father or brother who was their support It was then they miss the strong arm and wise guidance without which they are almost alone and helpless in this wide and selfish land What a blessing it proved when the officers of the Catho lic Knights look over their rolls and find that lovingly and thoughtfully the departed friend has provided for them by membership in this order which has paid out over 10000000 and now has a reserve fund of 550000 IIIII3Ii I + I I + OCONNOR iSuccessful Young Lawyer i I i t t I Ii reunion Is

time than any other and now stands at the head of the fraternal organizations in this country At the present time there are nearly forty branches in Kentucky and the State Council and Central Com mittee are making an earnest effort to increase the number The order he declared was a great and noble one rind should lead in membership as well as morals and finances Kentucky should awaken to the importance of the issues presented by the speakers for the Catholic Knights who offer the best possibell life Insurance at fifteen to twentyfive per cent less than does the old line com panies or other fraternal societies excepting the Catholic Knights and Ladies of America of whom he spoke in eulogistic terms His remarks were given close attention and frequently elicited warm applauseA surprise was sprung by Chairman Joe McGinn when he announced Profs Thomas Weaver and Steve Palmer from Louisiana and Vir ginia respectively Both were colored men and their singing and playing elic ited the greatest applause of the evening they having to respond to three encores Mr W C Smith Supreme Trustee then related the twentyfour years suc cess that has marked the society asserted that in

Knights told of one who was a member unknown to his family and showed how from the little 2000 obtained a fortune of 500000 has since grown Mr Smith was frequently greeted with deserved applause Miss Annie Cleary next appeared with a recitation Her voice was clear and belllike musical and well modulated her gestures forcible yet graceful Her delivery prpvoked a storm af applause and her number was pronounced one of the most enjoyable features of the even ing lix Supreme Secretary Newton OI Rogers then appeared on the platform ralliedesfrom an 87000 deceittwhen the outlook positionnoC world he asserted had had a similar ex perience and arisen superior to its misfortunes This showed that God did not intend such noble purpose should fail i u Qa Mr Rogers was frequently applauded and his address certainly merited high recognition Altogether the evening was a most enjoyable one and all in attendance were genuinely glad they were present WILLIAM B MACKIN Popular Young Irishman Ac cepts Position With C C Roe There is no more popular or yen and favorably known young man in the city than Billy Mackin who has been clerking with A Button Son at Seventh and Oak streets for the past five years Born at Lebannon Ky in 1870 he received his education at St Josephs College Bardstown He is a nephew of the late Rev W P Mackin who was rector of St Cecilias church for nearly ten years lIe is a hardworking member of Mackin Council Y M I and generally liked by all who come in con tact with him Mr Roe certainly is to be congratulated in having such au ableI and popular assistant as Billy Mackiu and when the returns come in from Limerick his influence will have been shown The Assessors office is one of the most difficult of all public offices to manage but Charley Roe has been Semonins

Tuesday Bishop McCloskey for warded to Mayor Weaver a deed for a strip of land 1200 feet in length on the east side of St Louis cemetery The land was donated to the city of Louisville by the Right Rev Bishop and the dona tion was unexpected The value of the gift is estimated to be about 4500 The city it appears has been negotia ting for this strip of land for some time It is desired in the near future to im prove Von Borries avenue Unless this strip could be obtained the street when improved would be crooked The land was owned by the St Louis Cemetery Corporation the title of which of course is vested in the Bishop of the diocese Because of this fact the Mayor has been striving to acquire the strip by purchase Bishop McCloskey bas generously donated it for the public good As a result improvement may begin at once JUDGE TARVIN Decides That Courts Can Not Govern Strikers by Injunction Judge Tarvin rendered a decision in the Kenton County Circuit Court Mon day that will be of the greatest interest to workingmen It is in a word to the effect that the courts can not govern the actions of men by injunction The case that brought forth the decis ion was that of John T Underhill a master plumber who sought to enjoin the actions of the striking plumbers in Covington Underhill asked that the men be restrained from interfering with or assaulting the men who had taken the places of the strikers in his establish ment Judge Tarvin refused the Injunc tion on the ground that the complaints mainly were of a criminal nature and redress should be sought in the Police CourtIt does not appear to me says Judge Tarvin In his decir ion that such procedure is authorized by constitution the lawa of this nation or the Common wealth Injunction is a remedy to be used only where no other remedy exists It is always a hateful but oftimes neces sary remedy LAROE CROWD Notwithstanding the unfavorable i weather Monday large numbers of ladies and gentlemen assembled at the New Albany fair

commendation and consideration The striking carpenters of this city have offered to submit their de mamU of their employers to a board of arbitration They propose to refer the whole controversy between themselves and the Guilders to a boarsof fifteen men five of which they propose to select other five to r be selected by the builders the tea thus chosen to select the remaining five They further agree that any Judge connected with any IpttiBville court may act as moder Stor This body shall hear both sides of the pending dispute and render that which it may determine is a jjtwt decision to not this offer fair Is it no honorable and just It is indeed ifficult to see how the striking irpeuters coded offer anytbiny fJ D 1J juster or fairer Believing in the justice of their claim they are witting to submit the matter in iits entirety to a board of arbitrate thus chosen believing that men so selected inevitably must deal fairly by them Our conviction is that the builders can not afford to ignore this offer our hope is they will not Individually and collectively they must recognize that their strikit employes have proposed an honorable way out of the present uufor unate situation A LESSON FOR US The existing religious situation in Portugal undoubtedly contains a lesson for Catholics in this country A Lisbon correspondent of tbe Liverpool Catholic Times whic though edited by and Irishman and distinctly Irish in tone is one of the oldest journals published in England reveals the cause for things as they exist in that country Here in Kentucky our people read in the papers daily lurid nccoun of mobs wrecking convents or at tempting to do so of priests arming themselves and firing upon mobs of young women being imprisoned iin convents against their will of riots against the religious orders of mono asteries suppressed of much nor and wonder at it all having beard that Portugal like Spain Franc and Italy is a Catholic country And what is the cause as interpreted by a Catholic writer of di tinction This simply The Catl Tics of Portugal like those iof Spain have gradually allowed themselves to come under the influence ofa public press dominated by Masons infidels and revolutionist For years the press of Portugal has been allowed to insult and misrepresent the church Pretended Liberals have been allowed to mold public opinion and they have npldcd it to accomplish the destruction of the church institute jy Jesus Christ Catholic paper existed itis true but the Portuguese clergy took little interest iin seeing them supported As a resul hey have grown weak while thei ivals have grown strong and yet sore bold and fuller of misrepresentation Seeing the multitude of lies go uncoutradicted the mass of the people have become misled or imid to a degree In a word the Catholics of Portugal have by their own cowardice and their own culpable indifference reduced themselves to such a state of abject helplessness that neither press nor Government pays the slightest attention to their timid remonstrances the correspondent explains Meanwhile the work of confiscation of church property and expulsion of religious orders goes on the strong devil inspired secular press nodding extant approval There is a striking object lesson ini the Portuguese trouble for Catholics everywhere The individual or the religious denomination that does not stand out courageously for- his or its rights will undoubtedly lose them It is not meant that Catholics should deprive others of theIr rights they will have plenty toi do in safeguarding their own- S tendencies are strong Catholic journals must be regarded necessity The news journall of today is- anr Argus looking in every direction a sentinel on a tower ever watchful and always ready to give alarm rely can those who toil find time tti1 trash fur themselves They us trust others to keep outlook J r thin If they trust art infidel ni l pt 9 c upbachI Catholic Portugal d 1 A STREET HARRIAQE Catholic New Orleans just now is visibly excited At a recent street fair two silly young Catholics allowed themselves to be brought on a platform and married by a Magistrate who tied the knot free of charge to the young people although it appears he was paid to do so by those in charge of the fairI Later the youngsters betook themselves to a Catholic church and were remarried by a priest but not before public opinion forced them to take such step Commenting on the occurrence the venerable Morning Star of that city remarks For two Catholics to be induced into such a disgraceful and obnoxious ceremony is an abomination to everything Catholic and shows alack of modesty on the part of the parties concerned It is anti Cath lic and a disgrace that two Catholics would lend themselves to be madc a show of as evidently was the jin- tention of the promotors of the scheme By doing so they gave the church a slap in the face and disregarded a sacred law of the reo ligion in which they were baptized and reared This is pretty severe yet J1eed we wonder that such things occur Outside the church street wedding are becoming daily affairs at a certain order of fairs and our Catholic people are merely dropping into doing as they see those about them do During the last two years we have had fully a score of such sensational weddings in Kentucky towns small and great and we fancy an end has not come to the disreputable custom yet And we notice by the way that over at Peoria Ill Bishop Spalding lately has had to make an earnest war on street fair weddings and has Von but here in the South the practice seems taking deeper root day nfter day Charles J OMalley formerly itof the Midland Review and than whom there is no better or abler Catholic writer today has accepte the

Parliament That Part of tho House of Com mons Kcgnrilcd Most Interesting ODohorty Reddy ODonnoll Joyce Luiulon OShnugh- ncssy and Flavin STUPID SLANDER CLEARLY REFUTED Now that we have a little breathing space at Westminster when silence like a poultices has come to heal the blows of sound it may be well to ex amine some of the new recruits and to attempt to describe what manner of men they are I make no excuse for selecting my specimens from the Irish benches for I have more than once explained that I regard that part of the House as far more interesting than any other I begin with William ODoherty He is in every sense a coming mankeen resourceful and pushing I have seldom seen a man who has so quickly learnt the artand it is an artof questioning Ministers and of following up his original inquiry by shrewd supplementaries ODoherty is so I am assured a brand plucked from the burningthat is to say he was once a Unionist but has far too much brains for the stupid party Nor is he the sort of man content to stop in a back seat He takes Tim Healys corner when the redoubtable Tim is away and he hay the knack of appearing like a leader An other thing in his favor is that he Iis about thirtytwo years of age Moreover he is highly educated having obtained the In corporated Law Societys medal at his final examination before being admitted as a solicitor Among his other claims to fame is the fact that he is the Coroner for Innishowen and all that I can say is that if he sits on the departed with any thing like the success he shows in sitting on Ministers and others in the House he ought to be a remarkably good Coroner Mr Reddy is what his name implies he is all there lie seems to be on the pounce all the time He turned Bernard Molloy out of the House much to that gentlemans surprise I am told Now there is one gift and 1C is a valuable one in the House which the Irish possess above their fellows and that is the gift of cheering They cheer all together and yet there is no suggestion of the mechan ical claque when they give tongue The reader may have noticed that in a theater when a storm of applause bursts out it generally rises and rises until the final climax is reached and a god in the gal lery treats the house toa piercing whis tie Well when the Irish boys applaud the volume of sound rises in the same way and then on the very top of the wave Reddys shrill voice is heard clear as a bell shouting Hee hee hee I am conscious all too conscious of the impossibility of conveying the effect in print but there is something cheery and inspiring in the eo the suggestion of wigs on the green coattails trailing shillelaghs twirling and all the rest of it when that voice breaks in It makes one feel better to hear him Of course all Irishmen are orators more or less but QDonnell the member for Kerry is the only one who has given the House a touch of that truest Irish oratory that is to say oratory in the JIrish language I remember hearing his experiment and by the way his remarks which were cut all too short by the Speaker are enshrined in Hansard printed in Irish characters I am bound to say there was a good deal of difference of opinion even among the Irish mem bers and the Irish jjournalists as to what ODonnell really said All I know is that it sounded very nice rather melancholy and pathetic and just a little like Welsh Moreover though I understand not one syllable I am bound to say that I felt as if I agreed with every word For ODon nell like many of his race has such a way wid him It is quite a mistake to suppose that the honorable member is a man who can attract attention by eccen tricity He can talk English and elo quent English too as well as his own language Indeed ODonnell is a man of greater culture than most English members That is not saying much I know so I may add that he has been a national school teacher and has taken his degree in the Royal University It Is one of the most cheering facts connected with the reorganized Irish party that so many of its young members are men of brains and of education and ODonnell is one of its ornaments Mr Joyce member for Limerick is what is known as a character He has been a pilot yet he comes straight to the House and is by no means unfit for that assembly He is one of natures true humorists and like all real humorists he is geniality personified His voice is as resonant as that of John Burns and after being iti hisicorapany for five minutes you can see that there is a man true as steel and clear as crystal Joyces greatest effort was a speech delivered between 3 and 4 in the morning during an all night sitting and the simple candor with which he appealed to the Speaker as the grand pilot to help him if he got stuck on the shoals and quicksands of Parlia mentary procedure captured all those who were present After an appeal of that sort of course the good Speaker let him say anything and he had the whole House roaring in next to no time Even Halfour was doubled up with laughter and lus refrained from moving the clo sure Nays while Joyce was speaking Jtelfotir jpee to go out but the member for Limerick implored him to stop in eo wheedling

the pilot to the end Lundon is another Limerick member sitting for the eastern division of that fair county All sorts of tales preceded him to Westminster 1 was told that he talked such very Irish English that there was only one man in Irektnd who under stood him and this onemau went about with him as an interpreter I Of course that was all nonsense f but it is the fact that Lundons English is not much more easy for me to follow than is ODonnells Irish Another tale is based upon Lun dons rugged appearance It is alleged with what truth I know not that wben the Vicar General or some such ecclesi astical functionary I often get their titles wrong was asked why Lundon had been sent to Parliament he replied 1 Weve just sent him to frighten them I dare say that this too is legendary Yet this somewhat uncouth man is really a great scholar and is as great an authority on Latin as the House contains He has taught the priests of his country Latin for many a year He has been in the movement for more than twenty years and tow at last he has his reward in the shape ofan unopposed return to the House Another of the yotuiger members of the Irish party is OSU wghnesey who 1is only twentyeight ywl i of age He is also a medalist and U atudying for the legal profession TJt C are no end of llearned member from Ireland QSbaughneay had fine compliment paid hiui by Sir Will un the other day when that old veteran said with what pleasure he had listened to the eloquent voice of young Ireland The speech which elicited that encomium was a fervent appeal to the House to pass the bill preventing children from being served in public houses It was a touch ing appeal too There is no more stupid slander than that which is still rife among the ignorant or the bigoted to the effect that the Irish are a rowdy and drinking set of men Some of the fiercest of its members men who cause scenes and defy the whole House like Ajax defying the lightningare teetotalers and have been all their lives The solemn stodgy Englishman who Is incapable of enthus iasm unless he is more than half drunk can not understand the purer fire of the Celt and knowing that in his own case excitement means liquor he judges staudardOshaughnessy the lie to that degrading estimate which is disgraceful only to those who entertain it or pretend to I have been scribbling these notes taking men merely at random men who have impressed me during the last few weeks Let me refer to two who are not new to the scene two who are as excit able as any and who owe nothing to the flowing bowl The first is Flavin He is one of the stalwarts of the temperance quitefascinatinKhe led two of the new members about the place at the beginning of the session The two were I believe Murphy mem ber for East Kerry fa bit of a poet and the happy husband atone of the most beautiful women in Irelandthat land of beauties and ODonnell already men tioned The trio were called the three musketeers and they have done some sniping opensfireguns He is more terrible than an army with banners But I have spoken of him before and I turn to mention another parliamentaryhand men in the House and one of Jhe most misunderstood I mean my friend Swift MacNeill lIe has not been in his place once this session and I am sorry for it but much more sorry because of the rea son which is that his health has broken down I hope it may be soon restored Question time seems quite a tame affair without his delicious asides his com ments his gestures more eloquent than some mens speeches and his racy irrepressible interruptions Everyone who knows him likes him There is no credit in liking him because you can not help it If it is any consolation to him in his sickness to know that he is missed and to know that he will be warmly welcomed when he comes back he can take it from me that this is so I have heard him talked about in the lobby by those who hate his views in a manner which would touch even a less emotional man CENTRAL LABOR UNION Labor Day Celebration Pend ing Strikes and Other Matters The regular monthly meeting of the brpughtPt and for four hours the amen who study the advancement of organized labor
