Season of Advent Special Correspondence of the Kentucky Irish Amerlcanljj HBNDBRSON Ky Dec 3Last SunI day being the first of the month wasI communion day for the Ladies AltarI Society The meeting was after beuedlcI tipu of the blessed sacrament in the afternoon and was more largely attended than usual but it is the desire to have each married lady admitted to member ship The object apparent to all Instructed Catholics iian be promoted bye an increase of revenue the stipulated price per month being from ten to twentyfive cents owing to the ability to pay but as is usual here the poorer classes are the first on duty with bottI money and labor There are new vestments to be had the organist must beI paid church expenses be met janitorsI feet coal bill and all other incidental re quirements necessary to decent worshipI such as the members of Holy Name pariah desire and if we who feel at times that the burden is great for us to carry will only stop and think of the meaning of the grand inscription over the high altar whiA reads u Whatsoever thy band finds to dot do with thy might for rGodsbonorandglory and iu His name trustingto Hint for strength iif wet ponder over the nteanlugand

receptacle of the precious body of our dear Lord from whom all good gifts come Miss Mary Flaherty who is acting in the capacity of trained nurse and who goes out to private homes has the praise of her Protestant friends of cap and apron order for constant duty attended by a mirthful and encouraging demeanor which is to be envied and which gives an air of wholesome sunshine and hope to the sick The holy season of Advent is upon us with suppressed gayeties appropriate to the heralding of the nativity of the Christ child the most important event of historical fame to mankind the an nual renewal of which is a pleasure un surpassed and never ending to Christians Holy Name church is in possession of a beautiful Christmas crib purchased last year by our late pastor at a neat price somewhere in the reach of 150 which is a joy forever to behold owing to the unique work good material and sacredness connected with it The chil dren were enraptured over the beauty of the Infant Jesus in the manger the nat ural likeness of donkey aud oxen grazing and the construction of the primitive stable containing the precious figures of both mother and spouse also the vener able greybearded wise men who bore costly gifts for the babe What a comparison between the in terior of a consecrated house where one is at peace with God and cares left out side for a time and the outer world with its strivings for wealth for contentment and fame One possessed of these finds friends ready to praise and exalt and the worldapplauds as long as he is subservient to its wishes but there is seldom in that heart a grateful tribute of love to the Creatorno obligation to any but selfall sublime principle swallowed up by sensuality Selfindulgence an occa sional gift to a friend but no donation to Gods cause no Christian monument erected to his credit and memory But alas death the inevitable comes and robs him of his possessions and portrays him in his ghastly individuality shorn of soulsaving graces The frequent mention of bazaars and moneymaking enterprises in Louisville for church purposes kindles within us desires for something similar by way of diversified pleasure as it would bring in help from the outer circles and be a novelty here Ere a great while we may expect another visit from our Right Reverend Bishop as a class of first communicants Is being prepared for the sacraments We hail his coming with delight- A fine system of business training is in session here under control of Christie Buckman lately from San Antonio Texas but a native of Kentucky This school is complete In its business course is progressing effectually and deserves mention as it is no ordinary cheap John affair Terms reasonable good sound instruction guaranteed taught night and day by one thoroughly quali fied owing to very best advantages hav ing been procurred by Mr Buckman who graduated with honors and has been President of a similar school in Texas for several years Mr Buckman is a Catholic gentleman in first class standing of high literary attainments but has pupils ofall conditions and creeds and deserves clever patronage Miss Katie Hart a Sodality member has been bedfast for some time but is no worse Among the many ladies in Catholic circles noted for beauty of face form and conduct are the following Missses Anna and Mary Ryan Misses Hart Grace Wrenn Lollie Blondin Maggie Lee Brigid Haffy Mamie OByrne Josle Rutlinger Lizzie Burch Nellie Mary Allie and Eliza Manion Mary Delker and many more whose names I can not now recall Dame Rumor whispers another wed ding in the near

of Mrs Kate Cain of 1108 West Oak street died last Saturday at her home after a brief illness The announcement of her death was a great surprise as well as a profound shock to her relatives and friends Miss Aylward was a thoroughly accomplished lady possessing all the graces of a liberal education and endowed with a charm of manner rarely found These gifts were united to a kindly heart and charitable disposition Of her it might truly be said that her tight hand knew not the benefits her left hand was bestowing To do good by stealth was more than her purpose jt was the very habit of her quiet life which meant so much for the accomplishment of Christian duty The funeral took place on Monday morning from St Louis Ber trands church with requiem IKbmass and was very largely attended Very Rev Father Fowler delivered a touching eulogy with much grace and iinpressive ness Our profoundWe shed the silent tear Our sighs are now the only so ud That floats above her bier Route dispatches

Joseph Piazza carried off the honors at Trinity and Frank Murphy was the victor at Mackin Council The former is with the Thornton Coffee Company and has been an untiring worker for the order Frank

Powell Dennis Smith James Collins and Peter Maloney MEETS WITH FAVOR Catholic Knights Arrange For Creation of Two Funds The question of the distribution of the funds in the hands of the local Central Committee of the Catholic Knights of America has been settled in a manner that should meet with the hearty approval of every member of the order For some months past the subject has been debated at considerable length but without any satisfactory plan being sug gested Pursuant to resolution adopted last month the matter of disability and prize funds was referred to special committees who met last Friday night with Joe McGinn all the members being present including State President Michael ReichertThe for a disability fund has become quite apparent and the solution reached will give this grand order still more popularity among Catholics Reso lutions providing for the appropriation of tl50 for this fund were unanimously adopted and hereafter the member who is disabled through sickness or lack of employment will be cared for This is a benefit not conferred by any other fra ternal society that we know of and speaks loudly for the liberal spirit of the Catholic Knights- It was also decided to set aside the sum of 150 to be distributed as prizes among the branches showing the largest percentage of gains in membership dur ing the time intervening between now and the next State convention Following the installation of officers which takes place at the January meeting arrangements will be made for an entertainment the money realiita there from to be devoted to the 11Jltainauce of the funds above mentioned Nomjua lions of officers were made at last nights meeting held in St Marys Hall ABATE THE SMOKE Next Tuesday night a special committee representing the

to the Elllclcncy of Its Chief William Sullivan Evil Doors Now Fear and Give This City a Wide Berth CITIZENS WANT FORCE HELD INTACT The splendid condition of the Louis ville detective department at the present time is mainly due to the efficiency of the Chief Capt William Sullivan When the present Chief took charge there was very little discipline in the department and scandals frequently occurred Capt Sullivan has all the requisites to make a good Chief In the first place he is honest and can be trusted with secrets which naturally come to the department In the second place he is sober and al ways on duty To remove a man who has attended to his duties so faithfully would be an unwise step and it is not be lieved the incoming Board of Safety will do any such thing unless a better man can be found Honesty and integrity is the first requirement in the detective department Citizens and taxpayers are frequently compelled to entrust their lives and property to the members of this department and there should be no sus picions attached to the head of the bureauCapt Sullivan is ably assisted by Thomas Check as Secretary Charles Hickey and William Sexton Eugene ODaly and William Walker Will Hard ing and Dee Armstrong Martin Donahue and Charles Ross detectives All these men have fine records Capt Eugene ODaly served in the Union army and has been on the force for twentyfive years Martin Donahue has been in the Council and served as a License Inspctor Armstrong and Harding have made splendid records for ones so young and ft is so with all of them The Board of Safety will make a great mistake if it dismisses any of these efficient men It is a well known fact that Louisville is given a wide berth by thieves and cracksmen and when any venture here they are promptly placed under arrest It is much to the credit of Chief Sullivan and his men that not a single robbery took pUce during any of the great gather ings here the past year Evil doers wisely shun this town Let the present force remain intact and this excellent state of affairs will continue to exist Mayor Grainger will send to the Board of Aldermen next Tuesday night the names of the gentlemen selected for the Boards of Safety and Public Works The Mayor has thus far kept them a secret but the name of the next Chairman of the Board of Safety will surely be Edward TierneyNace Vetters friends are now confi dent of his reappointment as Superin tendent of the Workhouse His edwin istration has been honorable and success fuland this with his loyal and earnest work for the entire ticket should land him His appoinment would meet with approval everywhere FRANKFORT Grim Reaper Death Has Been Busy at the Capital City Special Letter to the Kentucky Irish American FRANKFORT Dec 5The candidates

MEMBERS AROUSED Both Sides Confident of Cap turing IrishAmerican Banquet The contest inaugurated two weeks ago by the IrishAmerican Society the prize being a banquet for the winning side at the expense of the losers has enthused the members to a high degree This was apparent to everybody at the largely attended meeting held Thursday night at Hibernian Hall when six new members were proposed President Joe Nevin was in the best of humor and con fident that his side would be victorious while Capt Murphy laughed and intimated that his men had a surprise up their sleeve The battle for new mem bers is on in earnest and it will be sur prising if several hundred names are not added to the roll within the next few months Neither side should hold back applicationsPresident Nevin presided the meeting abounding with enthusiasm Secretary Flynn was again at his desk and through his efforts facilitated the transaction of much routine business Treasurer Kee nan made his annual report which was very gratifying the society being in a much better financial condition than a year ago Upon motion the two Captains were allowed to add to their teams a number of members not present when the contest was first started During the evening there were spirited talks led by the President and partial pated in by Mike Francis John Flynn Tom Keenan and others Some surprise was expressed at the nonaffiliation of IrishAmericans who would be benefited by membership They may remain out side its fold longer but when they apply for the sole purpose of taking advantage of unforeseen events and boosting them selves they need not be surprised if they are turned down The election of officers takes place at the next meeting Thursday night week and already much interest is felt therein Whatever the result the organization is assured capable officers there being so many good men to select front Every member should be present on Thursday night December 10 They will be well repaidand

KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN 326 West Green Street RA 5 UNCIL 00 LOUISVILLE KY 1111 SATURDAY DECEMBER 7 1901 THE CITY TAX RATE As the time approaches for levy ing the city tax rate for next year suggestions and estimates are being offered the Council There are those Who insist on a low and lower tax rate and others who favor a higher rate and more effi cient administration of city affairs The low taxers controlled the last Council and gave Us two years of a that regime despite the vetoes of Mayor Weaver who based his op position on the ground that the rate was too low to yield the revenue needed for the proper conduct of the citys business Much as we desire a low tax rate results prove Mayor Weaver was right The city departments have not been effi ciently conducted with a just return to the people for tuxes paid nor the t protection and advancement of the citys interests People pay city taxes for police and fire protection for safety peace conveniences and comforts Which it is the duty of the city goverri went to give them During the past two years the people have not received these The principal argu ment of the low taxers is the in crease in value of assessments but they ignore the fact that the citys area population and needs have also increased With the suburbs Louisville covers a large area all of t which is subject to city taxes and entitled to all city benefits The A part of the city has little T for complaint but the sub urbs get practically nothing in re turn for their taxes In the sub- urbs5 the sight of a policeman is a novelty and residents are subject to annoyance and pilfering from rowdies In case of fire because of a lack of streets and water facil ities they are without protection Pox want of sewers they have no drainage At night they are in darkness They have neither gas tjior water connection and only a few wells For want of streets they wade through the mud Yet I they pay taxes for all those things This is an injustice as well as an injurious policy As a result sub urban development has stopped property has depreciated instead of enhanced The people are dissatis fied and anxious to sell out if they can obtain anything near the cost of their homes but suburban property is a drug on the market and the city derives only a nominal sum from taxes on this extensive area which should and will under a just and wise administration develop buildup and increase in value and incly revenue And it is the same to a great ex rtent allover the city Property is not profitable investment capital avoids it and with the exception of a few central localities improvement has stopped and decadence and depredation are manifest All over the i property is for sale or rent With the city government cutting everything to the lowest possible figure the entire business of the r city seems to have been forced down to the same cheap unremunerative levell and Our merchants manufacturers and corporations seem to follow aldtaad cut each others throat reducing their expenditures q carrying on Jhejr affairs and the lumber and pay of employes Louisvilles ambition or at least the urn of those w1 controlled her Hairs has been to eratet 1achea- py1beyliaV succeeded too er the CHX sgoodttilrea1y t every one ron the est i compelled ib ant dur ing new fields of enterprise shun cheap towns As a New York printer formerly of Louisville puts it Louisville is a nice city to live in but a poor place to make a liv ing Capitalists business men and skilled laborers leave here to invest their money devote their talents and industry to obtain better re sults elsewhere and while it is true that the city has increased in popu lation it is not of a class that adds to its wealth being chiefly negroes or a class of whites who bring nothing with them whose labor adds nothing to the community and who are too often not even de sirable neighbors but they work cheap and therefore supplant the better more productive and skilled add energetic elements who are forced to emigrate to the citys loss inthe end It is time for Louisville to wake up We have been too long rUQ ning a cheap town with the only result that cheap methods can bring a city of over 200000 the ennuiand antiquated methods of a country village lacking the enter prise to employ its people and offer ing no future hope to its rising generationLet try running a live town shake off the easygoing old way devote less attention to seeking the cheapest and try the best that promises progress and profit And in this the city government must take the first step not in squeezing to the lowest tax rate regardless of results but in providing for a full and efficient administration of the citys business giving the people those things which it is its duty to provide We need more good and clean streets and alleys more sew ers more lights more and purer water more police improvement and additions to the fire department and finally more attention to the citys busimess and less to politicsThis will undoubtedly take more money and possibly an increase in the tax rate though this may be avoided by stopping factional contention and litigation that have re tarded city business and cost thou sands of dollars in late years and by a strict attention to duty It will give the people what they pay for and expect from the city and a higher tax rate will be therefore cheaper andmore satisfactory than a low tax rate for which they re ceive nothing- A low tax rate is desirable but it must be based on business tsense= and not niggardliness on an eco nomic estimate of the citys needs and not a mere show of saving by curtailing what the people are en titled to and it is the citys duty to provide We hope the Mayor and Council will have the courage to do their duty and that is to thor oughly investigate the city depart ments learn what is needed for carryIonup the total levy a tax rate to pro vide the needed revenue and make the appropriations then see that the money is properly expended and the citys business attended to in every department Of course the croakers will croak they will croak anyhow are croak t JAg now even at the resultsof their own cheap policy But the industrious and progressive element who pay the bulk of the taxes and whose active energy build up cities will be better satisfied We wilt have more live btwlaeaa and ad vancemetit and make Louiaville a Mecca for arabittbufl and goahead- people rather than the aleepy old fogy cheap way sttttioft to be n abandoned and shunned as it u r ENGLISH FLATTERY RESUMED The flattery of America and Americans by the English Govern ment and press several months ago is recalled by a resumption of this fawning coupled with a warning against Englands whilom friend Germany The previous flattery failed to bring about closer rela tions or the desired AngloSaxon alliance the United States did not cooperate with England in the Chinese muddle but looked put for American interests only and while the United States made friends of all the world and China top and has gained much in prestige and trade England lost both Then the United States stood pat and came out ahead of England in the Alaska boundary question to the chagrin of England and anger of Canada The United States also firmly refused to yield a single point on the Isthmian canal treaty maintained strict neutrality as to the South African war selling sup plies arms and ammunition to the Boers and horses and mules to the English putting money into Amer ican coffers regardless of results in South Africa Next the blarsted American went scurrying the world over supplanting British trade everywhere and finally pushed into Great Britain to drive the British manufacturers and traders out of their home market Englands affection for America seemed to cool and Germany became the object of her fawning and a plea made for European unity to protect trade from Ameri can aggressiveness But Germany notwithstanding a secret treaty left England in the lurch in China has become indifferent if not dis posed to be hostile in regard to South Africa is pushing her best sugar and wares into British mark ets and finally resenting a slur of Chamberlain on the German army the people and press are holding meetings ant formulating protests that are neither complimentary nor affectionate toward England The English press seem to realize they have not cajoled Germany and have forebodings as to her aims and future attitude toward England The flattery of Germany has been changed to insinuations of German enmity andrivalry against Amer ica and English declarations of affection and solicitude for Amer icas future with a plea for Anglo Saxon alliance The London Daily Chronicle referring to the anti English demonstrations in Ger many says It should be plain to thoughtful Americans that this agitation in Germany is an expression of an animus not aimed exclusively at one branch of the AngloSaxon race It is probable that if South Africa were peaceful the Philip pines would be the subject of Ger man pen and pencil fantascies The Chronicle recalls the Dewey Diedrichs incident in Manila bay as an evidence of German hatred to ward Americans and quotes from Sidney Brooks article in the Atlan tic Monthly to prove the necessity for an alliance between the Anglo Saxon peoples- KITCHENERS NEW TACTICS Kitchener seems to have adopted the blockhouses mounted columns fire and sword devastation and concentration camps of Weylef in Cuba and is succeeding in squelcH ing the Boers about as well as Wey ler did in suppressing the Cuban revolt With garrisons all along the railways at towns and crossroads blockhouses are built in the country and mounted columns raid In all directions to destroy all that may shelter or feed the Boer forces When all this has been established and the English troops massed in a district the Boers disappear and British supremacy seems to be established there but the wily Boers ateuot suppressed they simply move to another district Ford two years the English have been trying to stop the communica tion of the Boers with Defcgoa bay a Portuguese neutral port whence the Boers obtain supplies and finally succeeded in driving the Boers from the territory northof the Dd11 agoa railway only to have them move into tle territory south of the railway and open up a new line of communicatiON Twelve British columns followed the Boers who suddenly disappeared and have re sumed their old positions to the north of the railway where at this season fevers and disease do not prevail and food is plentiful the reverse conditions prevailing in the south district which the Boers evacuated and the English now occupyLord Kitchener holds his position at Pretoria and communication with Johannesburg by blockhouses railway garrison raiding columns and a constabulary force while the forces of Methuen Kakewich and Hicke are kept busy in the Mme way maintaining communication between Pretoria and the west and Cape Town the base of British supplies t Thus it is a game of seesaw with comparatively no loss to the Boers and a constant harrassing change of base and hurried move ments with occasional serious loss to the English in fighting while heavier loss from disease and ex haustion is not reported The extent of this shay be judged from the fact that England is sending every available soldier and buying horses and mules by the thousands for South Africa for though Kitch ener has at least 200000 men he needs more to overcome the 15000 Boers in the field that is the esti mate given of the Boer forces Perhaps the reason England turns her back on Germany is because it is not a partner in misery she is looking for as she could not hope for much aid from such a partner and it is aid that England reeds and is seeking England issuffering from financial trade and industrial depression that drives the fGovernment into the market to barrow money her cor poration stocks to depreciate be cause yielding no revenue her manufacturers and merchants to close downor reduce working forces title laboring people to be idle and her workhouses full of pau pers Germany is not yet seriously affected financially but is experi encing a trade and industrial depression that has bankrupted merchants forced manufacturers to outputIat any price rendering workers idle there being 45000 workmen idle in Berlin alone A partner with the cash and prosperity is the only one that England expects help from SANTA CLAUSE Little Folks Invited to Call and See Him at Bacons Santa Claus has arrived His

Exceedingly Uneasyt1 STRENGTH OF LEAGUE IN ENGLAND Cable dispatches from Rome convey the pleasing intelligence that the Pope at a special audience granted to Dr William Murphy the rector of the Irish College and a deputation of students ex tolled the fidelity of Catholic Ireland and of Irishmen all over the world to the Holy See He spoke of the Irish party mission now in the United States and expressed satisfaction at the friendly reception granted by President Roosevelt to its members He remarked that the Irish element is one of the causes of Americas vitality and greatness The Pontiff closed the audience by bestowing the Apostolic benediction on all Irishmen in the old country and iu the new world From I udon comes the news that the mission of Messrs Redmond McHugh and ODonnell to the United States in behalf of the Irish party has been almost entirely ignored by the English press their reception by President Roosevelt being mentioned in two lines The only extended reference to their visit took the form of an apparently officially inspired paragraph predicting that the mission will be an utter failure The Irish situation is causing intense uneasiness the British Government as the United Irish League is jut as potent as the Land League was in its greatest days But there is no crime to Afford a pretext for enforcing the coercion act the people having taken the advice of their leaders to avoid anything of that kind la Great Britain too the League has just demonstrated its strength at Dews bury where an important Parliamentary- election ia pfjrffng and the Irish vote is considerable The local branch of the League obtained from Runciman the Liberal 1mp candidate every re quired pledge on the Irish quentiofi even ill direct antagonUm to the recent apo Tame of hU
