there is great rejoicing throughout the entire parish lather Crania is regarded as one of the ablest and most eloquent priests in Kentucky and wherever he has been stationed since his ordination it was with regret that his parishioners parted with him St Patricks congregation is as large and important as any in Louisville but the new appointee will prove a worthysuccessor to the late lamented Monslgnor Gatnbon Father Cronin was born in Frankfort and his friends there and throughout the State will be pleased with his selection for this important post Every member of St Patrick a

County Council Except Three NO AGRARIAN CRIME IN IRELAND Chief Secretary Wyndhams revival of prosecutions under Arthur Balfours per petual coercion act has had the astonish ing effect of strengthening and extending the organization of the United Irish League throughout Ireland Defiance ol the coercive measures and the resistance to landlord ascendancy are being manifested wherever there have been evic tions says a Dublin cable to the New York World The Ministerial press in both Dublin and London is insistently demanding the suppressing of the League as an illegal combination although it is adniitted that there is virtually no agrarian crime in Ireland and that the League exhorts its members to confine themselves to holding aloof from the land grabbers and others associated with the coercion government This boycott is to be extended to the King and the Queen if they carry out their intention off visiting Ire land this spring when at the present rate one tliird of the Nationalist members of Parliament will be in prison Every Nationalist member of the Dub lin corporation who voted for the address to Queen Victoria on her visit is being opposed by a League candidate Lord Mayor Hegarty of Cork charged with inviting the King to open the Cork ex hibition in April is also opposed Alder man Crean M P publicly stated that he would come from Parliament on purpose I to assist in decorating Cork with black flags on the occasion of the royal visit as he did in 1834 when the then Prince of Wales was jeered through its streets coming under the auspices of an other coercion Government- It is intended to fix the ceremony con ferring the freedom of the city of Cork on John Redmond for the day of the royal visit should the latter be persevered in It is stated that for years the King has favored home rule as a solutiou of the Irish question but the Nationalists resent his visiting Ireland in association with an executive department which is reviving coercion The Nationalists whose ma jorities control every cd nty council in Ireland except three are determined that wherever the legal advisers of those bodies take part in coercion prosecutions for Dublin Castle they shall be dis missed and replaced by lawyers pledged to refuse to do such work In urgently demanding that the League be suppressed the London Times declares that the absence of any kind of overt crime in connection with this agitation is a particularly evil feature of the Irish situation as it denionstates the power of the United League So a great crime is unnecessaryIn Court Judge Johnson who like all Irish Judges graduated for the bench as a Government prosecutor when opening the Tipperary assizes was felicitated by the grand jury on the lack of crime in that vast county He replied This crimelessness like the blush on a young girls cheek instead of being evi dence of sound health often merely de notes the existence of a deepseated and fatal constitutional disease beneath II BRENDAN NAVIGATOR Irish Saint Came to America Before Columbus Was Born The romance of religion was never better illustrated than in the career of St Brendan and in the history of the Cathe dral which enshrines his remains writes Robert Dennis in the London Express The saint is known as the navigator and he is he patron saint of sailors He was born at Tralee in Kerry in the year 481 At an early period of his life he crossed td Great Britain and thence to France founding monasteries or schools in his progress put it was not until 545 that he undertook the voyage with which bis name is chiefly associated This event which was called JThe Setting Sail of St Brendan and His Crew was commemorated in the calendars of the Christian church on May 22 every year for many centuries afterward Whither did the saint sail and what did he discover This is i question upon which light has already been thrown The late Bishop of Dubuque Iowa at a meeting in Dublin a few years ago as serted that St Brendan not only landed in America 900 years before Columbus was born but alto evangelized portion of the country at that time UIis certain that the yoyogelatted altogether a period ofevnyriThe that St

Ireland of North men was the country south of Chesa peak bay including Carolina Georgii and East Florida There s a remarkabl tradition preserved amoitgthe Shawanei Indians who emigrated more than a cen tury ago from West Florida to Ohio tha Florida was once inhabited by white men who used iron instruments Trace of Irish origin have been bserved among some of the original tribe of North and Central America which suggest a pre sumption that those countries had beet colonized from Ireland at sonic remote period The history of early Irish Christian missions to America affords another proof of that country having bEen discovered by St Brendan 900 yeafbefore Columbus was born In the year 1519 whet Cortez and his 600 companions landed ir Mexico they were surprised to find that their coming was welcomed by the Mexi cans as the realization of an ancient native tradition to the effect that many centuries before a white wan had conic across the great ocean front the northeast in a boat with

Constantino One of the Earliest and Most Beloved Saints of the Church ALWAYS PATRON OF YOUNG GIRLS The remains of ySt Agnes one of the earliest and most beloved saints of the Christian church have just been dis covered in Rome They have had a most extraordinary career Again and again they have been lost buried under the accumulated dust of ages during the 1500 years that have passed since a mag nificent church was first erected over them by the Emperor Constantine Now they have been found ouce more and this time great pains will be taken to preserve their restiug place No archaeological or ecclesiastical dis covery could have greater interest than this St Agnes is a saint of such fame and antiquity her character was of such singular grace and charm that she has become the central figure in the most beautiful popular legends all over the Christian world Whether in ancient Rome or far away Scotland St Agnes is always the patron saint of young girls The recent discovery was made in the course of the excavations that are being carried on under the direction of Cardi nal Kopp Archbishop of Breslau The Church of St Agnes without the walls is under his jurisdiction every Cardinal having a church in Rome The church stands in a region that is undermined with catacombs Here both Agnes and her family who were Christians were buried in the earliest centuries of the church The rock lying but a few feet below the surface is honeycombed with passages chapels and tombs which are as yet only slightly explored The archaeologists and the worknieil under Cardinal Kopps direction were exploring a catacomb in the neighborhood foundIranean passage led into the crypt be neath the church It was then evident that the church had been built over a still more ancient chapel or crypt form- Ing part of the catacombs The walls were covered with the monograms and symbols which are so familiar on the walls of these early Christian refuges In one of the walls was a deep recess and the workmen discovered a beautiful silver casket When cleaned the scientists were able to read on it a Latin inscription stating that it contained the remains of St Agnes and that they had been piously placed there in 1000 by Pope Paul V The casket was opened and found to contain the frail remains of a young girl who had died ages ago Roman ecclesiastics and archaeologists have at last been able to explain the strange fact that a famous saints bones should have been lost beneath the very church which marked her burial place md which was built in her honor The original church was built by Constantine he first Christian Emperor about the year 320 A D over the catacomb con taining St Agnes body Constantine lid this in response to the earnest en treaties of his daughter Constantia who tad been told in a dream that she should honor Agnes memory in this way The church was largely rebuilt by Pope Honorius I between 625 and 638 but the original plan and the walls were retainedIt altered again in 1490 by Pope Innocent VIII but in spite of all these changes it has remained one of the purest md most interesting examples of the ancient Roman basilica The church is remarkable among other reasons be cause one has to go down a flight of steps tb enter it the soiUywijK risen up round it in the trident lost until the other day The popular legends that cluster about St Agues andI the immortal verse of Keats will help toI make this discovery interesting no less than its great religious and archaeologlca Value St Agnes is probably the oldest saint of the Roman church excepting the Apostles She is one of the four virgin martyrs Her festival occurs on January 21 the anniversary of her martyrdom St Agnes was born a Christian of noble family and at a very early age had vowed herself to celibacy When only thirteen she was sought In marriage by the sot of the Prefect Seuipronius in the reign of the tyrant Diocletian She refused him saying she was already affianced toi one whom she dearly loved meaning Jesus The young man fell sick of disappointed love and Sempronius learn ing his secret besought the maiden to take pity on the unhappy youth Bui Agnes answered as before that she was already affianced When Sempronlu inquired her meaning and learned that she was a Christian he rejoiced for he knew she was in his power He committed her to become a vestal virgin and on her refusal he had hei publicly exposed to all manner of ill treatment The soldiers stripped her of her raiment but her hair became as E veil covering her whole body and those who looked upon her were filled with fear When they had left her to herself she prayed that she might not be dis honored and a shining raiment de scended into the room She put it on rejoicing Soon afterward the son of Seuipronius entered thinking that she must be subdued but the light from the garment struck him blind and he fell down in convulsions Agnes was moved to compassion by the tears of his rela tivees and through her prayers he was healed Then Senipronius would fain have released her but the multitude cried out that she was a sorceress and clamored for her death She was bound to a stake the fire con sumed her executioners but would not hurt her At last a soldier climbed the pile and killed her with his sword The day of her martyrdom is given as January 21804 She vas buried by the Christians in the catacomb of the Via Nomen tana and her tomb became their place of assemblage for devotion At first the pagans sought to drive them away by hurling stones at them but having struck her foster sister a maiden named Euierentiana lightning darted out of the skies and killed many of the assailants Thereafter they suffered the Christians to go in peace to the tomb On the elghthday after Tier death the virgin ape peared lo the Christians surrounded by other holy martyrs and with a spotless lamb by her side and assurred them of her happiness It is on this account that St Agnes is represented with a lamb by her side She is usually clothed in white with the palm of martyrdom in her hand St Agues eve is chiefly famed in the British Isles as the time when young women are enabled to see their future husbands in a vision by performing cer tain ceremonies An ancient method of divination mentioned by Aubrey directs thatlIupon St Agnes night you take a row of pins and pull out everyone one after another saying a Pater Noster sticking pin in your sleeve and you will dream of him or her you shall marry A more elaborate method was for a maiden to leave her home and go to a strange locality When she retired to sleep that night she was to take her right 1e stocking and knit the left garter around it saying the while a fascinating jingle beginning I knit this knot this knot I knit At the conclusion of these words she was to lie down on her back with her hands under her head and her future spouse would surely appear in a dream and salute her with a kiss In all cases the charm was rendered more certain if the maiden went supper less to bed Thus Burton speaks of maids fasting on St Agnes eve to know who shall be their first husband Another dream charm for St Agnes eve was to take a sprig of royand another of thyme and with water then place I sprigbed r repeatingSt lira J Come ease th Many other vary tom might be J WON1 111j OFFICER HONORED 1 c I Hibernians

Pre dent of Division 4 We believe he is a charter member of the division and has filled the office of President for several terms He stood loyally by the organlza tion in its days of adversity especially when it was embarrassed financially on account of the great drain on its funds because of sickness and death With courage and untiring zeal he laboredwith Harry Brady Tom Lynch John Murphy

on is not a good thing and best voided if possible but as it arises in the large population and varie gated business of cities it should be settled soon as practicable Be sides there is daily much court busi ness of a routine but necessary nature to be attended to Nothing so embarrasses individuals and ham pers trade as dragging litigation and delay in court matters and Louisville has suffered greatly from it in the past four years Our Judges and court officials are not to blame and no one has charged them with being dilatory They are over worked and still the legal mill is behind We need more courts should have had them before and trust this Legislature will be more inclined than its predecessors were to listen to and grant Louisville something we need- VIOLATED PLEDGES Well what is this Legislature going to do for the anteelection friend of all the membersthe orkingman Promises were freely given as usual previous to the election and this Legislature will be given ample opportunity to demonstrate whether it will turn down the workingman as usual 1 after the election This may seem sarcastic but it is not It is a plain statement of fact bated on several years experience It rests with the Legislature to decide whether they will continue to vio late pledges and ignore the workingman The workingman will ask for what he wants and no soft soaping goes the Legislature will have to meet the issue squarely We hope the pledges will be ful filled thistime ENGLANDS CONDITION Englands condition as a world powerin military and naval matters commercially financially morally and otherwise is not only com mented upon by her enemiesas is sneeringly charged by the jingoes in this country as well as in Eng landbut is conceded and deplored b i conservative wellinfojrjaeiLEng hold ti ye I I Certainly a dark picture and without a ray of hope for the fu ture It reads like the decree of doom which has been predicted for Great Britain to follow the demise of Queen Victoria at the advent of the twentieth century The most bitter antiBritish fanatic could not make it more somber and hopeless Yet it is the honest opinion of a true Englishman reluctantly and regretfully given and carries conviction with it BIGOTRY There is at least one good thing about bigotry It shows up the small fellows In California a fund has been collected for a memorial statue to the late Senator White one of the pioneers whose pure life and devoted labors to develop the Pacific coast endeared him to all irrespective of politics nationality or creed The monument was to be erected on the Courthouse grounds in Los Angeles but the Board of Supervisors by a two thirds vote refused to allow it Why Bless your soul Senator White was a Catholic To the credit of the Californians the action of the board is condemned by the press and citizens of Los Angeles and other cities as narrow and indecent and an insult to the people of the State TREASON NOW CHARGED Col Arthur Lynch member of Parliamentelect from Galway who aided the Boers is enroute to Eng land and says he will take his seat unless prevented by force It is reported from London that Lynch will be arrested for treason as soon as he comes within British juris diction and under no circumstances will he be allowed to take his seat in Parliament As Col Lynch was not under charges previous to his election the result of any attempt to bar him a legally elected mem ber from Parliament on the ground of an offense alleged to have been committed previous to his election will be watched with interest for in Great Britain as in the United States members of legislative bodies are exempt from arrest dur hag sessions except for felony com mitted after their election Sir Ernest Cassel has excited all England by giving 1000000 to establish a sanitarium for consump tives The London Spectator hopes the gift will be the precursor of many more and comments on the cs of English million g

cipated In Rochester the city authorities send homeless childret to the orphan asylums and in such cases pays salaries to those who care for and teach them James Sargent backed by the A P A applied to Justice Rich for an in- junctionj restraining the city iron paying salaries to Nuns teaching a St Marys Catholic Orphan Boys Asylum on the ground that suet payment was in violation of section 4 article 9 of the State Constitution which forbids the diverting of pub lie money to religious purposes Justice Rich refused and an appeal was taken to the Supreme Court Justice Dunwell not only sustained Justice Rich in denying the injunc tion but held that St Marys Catholic Orphan Boys Asylum and other institutions controlled by re ligious bodies in the State of New York are entitled to receive school money for the education of the children ordered the salaries paid and gave judgment for costs against the petitioners One would suppose editors and especially religious editors would be sure they were right before they went ahead positively and loudly Alas Editors are but human after all The Schley episode furnishes an instance Some of our Catholic editors have strongly denounced the treatment of Schley as due to bigotry because Schley was a Cath olic descended from and connected with an old and prominent Catholic family of Maryland There has certainly been nothing in the entire case to indicate any such thing But that aside our Catholic editors were away off This is a large country and similarity of names is quite common the parties of the same name frequently being in no way related Thus the Catholic Schley family of Maryland and Admiral Schley also of Maryland are not the same even in ancestry Admiral Schley is not a Catholic nor were any of his ancestry so far as traced The meeting of Parliament is re garded in England with mingled feelings of hope and anxiety The condition affairs and prospects of the British empire were never in such a desperate fix the public press and politicians never at such variance as to the cause or remedy for the troubles industry and trade so depressed nor money so scarce and public and private credit so discounted With so much that needs explaining and remedying with the South African the Irish the finance industry trade agri cultural questions foreign affairs and lack of funds and declining credit the coming session of Parliament promises quite a monkey and parrot time Now that the plums have been given out how would it do for the city and county officials to give politics a rest and devote their at tention and energies to business Too much politics has been the bane of our local affairs for years and the new officials have the op portunity of gaining public favor by turningover a leaf and putting the United States to present theII Boer cause to the American people 1 I and solicit aid for the women and children rendered destitute by theI war The result of the visit of the former representatives besides vin1 dicating the Boers against calumny aud arousing sympathy in their be half netted 50000 for the relief willIprobablYand it seems likely they will not disappointed in their reception or treatment by the American people The Boer war has startled the civilized world in several ways Here is something that will startle England particularly According to official reports the number of British soldiers lost in the two years war is 24299 of whom 19 430 are known to have been killed But that is not the most startling South African climate has been more deadly than Boer bullets as 64330 men have been invalidedd home rendered unfit for duty by disease The President of the Swiss Con federation Dr Joseph Zemp is a Catholic He was born in Luzern in 1834 graduated in law at Mun ich and Heidelberg and became one of the most noted lawyers of Switzerland He has been promi nent in Government affairs since 1863 and was elected to the Na tional Federation Council in 1891 In 1895 he was elected President being reelected annually since and will soon enter upon his eighth term count Von Buelow the German Chancelor administered a stinging rebuke to Chamberlain the loud mouthed British Minister for bis impudent and uncalledfor slur 01 the German army This has arousei the ire of the British press which comments vigorously and disrespectfully on the Chancelor Thr chief trouble with the British empire is that such blatherskites as Chamberlain are in control of its affairs and recognized as leaders American firms will put in the plant to run an electric railway it Tokio Japan at a cost of 800000 to be finished in 1903 The lowest bid and guarantee of early comple tion knocked out their English competitors The London stock market opened firm for the new year but an effort to boom prices and increase busi ness failed because of lack of faith and lack of cash Certainly two very good reasons American securities are dull in London but this seems due to apprehension of what may be the course of the New York market rather than fear of loss in value or dividends OFFICER HONORED CONTINUKD FROM FIRST PACBl Pent who was so overcome with surprise and emotion at this splendid evidence

out burst in the West It isa very old moral Reform is delayed until the con ditiou of the people becomes unbearable then there is agitation met with a splenetic and futile attempt to drive discon tent beneath the surface and too late comes the attempt at concession and con tiliation Mr Russell has no doubt of the result of the struggle now proceeding in Roscomuion and throughout the Western province As the land act of 1881 followed the Land League as the land acts of 1887 and 1891 were produced by the plan of campaign so the establish ment of peasant ownership and the distribution of the empty ranches of the West will follow the present agitation Removables first land act secondsuch- is always the stupid order of the English Government of Ireland The complete absence of crime which Mr Russell notes makes the stupidity all the more glaring on this occasian We have no doubt it will continue A white calen dar unstained except by the police out rage or the manufactured crime of the

remembered that the charges brought under the jubilee coercion act against Messrs Conor OKelly M P Martin Staunton Chairman Castlebar Guardians Michael Horan John Garvey Sr and John Garvey Jr were

alsobe held this May Louisville is progressing Awakening from her lethargy she is broadening out and surely and firmly making upward strides One of the important factors in this progress is the interest taken in and the support given to the many noted at tractions which have been seen in Louisville the past few yearn Chief among these is the May music festival and it would be n falling backward if this should be dropped this year Every where and among all classes mal contents and grumblers may be found and if the matter were looked into closely it would be found that these are the very people who sit back and let others do the work They have no desire to put their shoulder to the wheel and give a helping hand and should the wagon keep in the same rut they are loudest in their denun ciationsThe of the festival in compli ance with the desires of their patrons wish to enlarge their plans and have still stronger attractions and therefore ask an increased guarantee fund In only one year hasthere been a call on the guaran tees then it was small Already about 20000 have been subscribed but the remaining 10000 are very slow in forth coming It behooves the laggards to be up and stirring and to hand in their sub scriptions at once so the plans can be decided on and all arrangements made If the spring should pass without some thing to attract visiitors to the city Louisville will be very dull indeed and the effect in business will be felt gener ally Coming just after such a prosper ous year the contrast will be more marked and it may cast a shadow on the citys future

continues to urpase all other European countries iiin xiaieleesueM which shows the power oft organization when people are earnest II- the advancement of some great principle Indictable offcMc show of adecteaeea ry 1 102 per cent and 182 per cent in minor offenses as compared with the prccctlin year This decrease in offenses against laws that they have hardly any voice In making is due to the advice of their leaders who advise them to obey the law although it is unwholesome to their interest It appears incredible to even imagine that any people would submit to oppression without resorting to violence whenever an opportunity offered yet such is a fact in Ireland and all ou account of the strong organization formed by their leaders throughout the country This record speaks well for the intelli gence of the Irish people and in the end I will result in their final emancipation regardless of British soldiery ON WITH THE DANCES Division WantThelr Friends to Join Them at Lieder kranz

House Miss Jennie McDonald Elected Enrolling Clerk of the Senate Happy Marriage of Miss Ber nudetto Haley and Joseph Noonan NEWS ROTES FROM CAPITAL CITY Special Correspondence of the Kentucky Irish American FRANKFORT Jan 9At noon on Tuesday last the General Assembly of Kentucky was called to order and was the most representative body of men that has assembled at Kentuckys capital for many years The Senate was called to order by Lieut Gov Carter while Chief Clerk Leigh wielded the gavel in the House The names of the Democratic caucus nominees were presented in both houses and after the formality of a ballot were declared elected the officers of each house Hon Gerald Finn of Simpson county was nominated for Speaker of the House by acclamation while Senator Utley was likewise honored in the Sen ateThe only race in the House that created much interest was that for Sergeant atArms between Capt Mack Phythian of Louisville and Capt William Long mire of Lexington the latter winning the nomination by four votes In the Senate Miss Jennie McDenald won the Enrolling Clerkship after one of the hardest and most exciting fights ever witnessed in a Democratic caucus Fiftysix ballots were taken before the contest was decided in favor of Miss McDonald The successful candidate is the charming and accomplished daughter of the late Squire Pat McDonald editor of the Argus and it goes without saying that she will discharge the arduous duties of the office in a manner that will reflect credit upon her The Senatorial fight is getting warmer andwarmer and it is a very hard matter to
