T- T Sb T KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICANu VOLUME VIIINO 5 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY FEBRUARY 11902 PRICE FIVE CENTS QUICK WORK Federation of Louisville Catho lic Societies Given Fresh Impetus Proceedings of National Con vention Reported by Dr Fowler 1 Approved by Archbishop Elder and a NumberofEminent Bishops r CATHOLIC UNION ELECTS OFFICERS The labor and energy expended during the past year by representative Catholic gentlemen of this city interested in the movement to federate all societies of Catholics were well repaid by the results reported and the action taken at the meeting of the Catholic Union at Satolli Hall on Monday night The report of Dr J W Fowler who represented Ken tucky at the first convention of the National Federation of Catholic Societies of the United States gave a fresh impetus to the delegates present and there is now reason for hope that every Catholic so ciety in Louisville will be enrolled in the County Federation now in process of organizationThough weather was extremely in clement there was a very representative gathering of delegrtes present when Pres ident McDermott called the meeting to order Another society St Peters of St Augustines colored church was added to the number now affiliated President McDermott presented Mr Bos quet of this city a national officer of the German North American Central Society who in an interesting address made many valuable suggestions He stated that the State organization numbered nearly one hundred societies and that in Louis ville there were thirtysix German Catho lic societies There Is little doubt he said but that when the national conven tion meets next September the major body and all its branches will join the National Federation either through State or County Federation and that they would be followed by many others All present were eager for the report of Dr Fowler who so ably represented Kentucky It was quite voluminous giving in detail the proceedings of the convention which lasted three days The first convention of the National Federation of Catholic Societies of the United States he said was composed of between 400 and 500 delegates represent ing every section of the United States and her recently annexed possessions Among the eminent church dignitaries who encouraged the movement by their presence and advice were Archbishop Elder Bishops McFaul Maes Messmer and Horstmann besides a large number of distinguished priests Archbishop Elder occupied the throne at the Cathedral and bestowed his benediction on the delegates at the close of the mass which preceded the opening of the convention Dr Fowler quoted from the welcome address of Gov Nash whose brave effort won him great applause Mayor Fleisch man spoke for Cincinnati presenting the keys of the city in an eloquent and pa triotic address Appropriate responses were made by Prof Anthony Matre and Thomas B Minahan Touching upon the future proceedings he declared they only tended to the spread of fraternal re lations and greater union among the Catholic societies of America thereby promoting and fostering love of God country and truth The National Feder ation through its State and county branches will strive for higher and more general education among the masses and commends to all Christians a close study of the encyclicals and recommenda lions of the Holy Father The Catholic press also came in for its share of atten tion and the convention pleaded for a more generous and united support of those who are endeavoring to supply the public with sound Catholic journals One of the most emphatic declarations of the constitution prohibits the introduction or discussion of partisan politics in either the National Federation or any of its component parts This effectually disposes of the silly rumors emanating from sources hostile to Catholic advance ment Dr Fowlers report will bring many more societies into the federation which should speedily complete its or ganization to be entitled to representa tion in the convention which meets in Chicago on the third Tuesday in July Communications were received from National Secretary Matre containing outlines and recommendations for the formation of State and County Federa tions together with the fees for member ship The constitution is now being printed and will soon be ready for distri bution Each county will make its own constitution and bylaws but nothing that would interfere with the autonomy of any society will be permissible The officers who served during the pastt pear were all reelected and will serve until the foundation of the County Federation is complete which will then I supersede the Catholic Union the purpose foe which it was organized having areuPresident Hoi Bdward J YcQer jnott Vice PreaidentDr JWi Fowler r U Secretary Eugene J Cooney After a general discussion the Presi 1 dent appointed a committee of five to visit the local societies with a view to permanent organization and electIon of officers The following gentlemen compose the committee Dr J W Fowler Emmet Slattery Thomas Feeley William M Higgins and John J Crotty The meeting was interesting through out and the steps taken should be productive of good results before anothe- month rolls around o 0 FEAST OF ST BRIGID Fatner Connelly Prepares For Its Celebration Sun day Night The feast of St Brigid the patron of the beautiful little Catholic church in the Highlands will be celebrated tomorrow evening with elaborate and brilliant serv ices under the direction of Rev Father Connelly the zealous and beloved pastor assisted by a number of local clergy Solemn vespers will be sung the services commencing at 73o oclock and a spec ially arranged musical programme will be rendered by the choir which is acknowl edged to be one of the best in the city Rev Thomas W White rector of St Fiances of Rome in Clifton will deliver the panegyric on the life of St Brigid There are few abler or more eloquent pulpit orators and it is safe to predict that the church will be taxed to its utmost to accommodate those who want to hear him Catholics from all parts of the city have heretofore participated in this cele bration and ample arrangements have been made for the accomodation of those who attend tomorrow The church is located on Hepburn and Von Borries avenue and is reached by both Broad way and Walnut street cars PATHETIC CONDITION Lord Dufferln Dying at His Irish Castle In l Antrim Cable dispatches from Dublin convey the distressing information that the Mar quis of Dufferin and Ava who has won every distinction that can be conferred for brilliant services in the highest and most responsible posts of the public serv Icea great administrator a great diplo mat a man of letters whose manifold Achievements havewon him worldwide renownis ending his days under pain fully pathetic circumstances in his Irish castle in County Antrim Though full of honors he retired from public life comparatively poor He was induced to give his illustrious name in succession to that of Lord Loch a former British High Commissioner in South Africa to the directorate of companies floated by Whit taker Wright who was then rapidly ac cumulating a large fortune by rigging the Westralian mining market The Whittaker Wright bubble burst a year ago His companies are now in liquidation having ruined a great number of credulous people who say they were tempted to invest their money by Dufferins name Whittaker Wright is being questioned in the bankruptcy court concerning his company manipulations while Lord Dufferin is dying under the shadow of this fatal connection In the London courts this week the fact was brought out that his connection with the company could attach no stigma to his name Dufferin having acted in a strictly honorable msnner and being a heavy suffererA dispatch says the Marquis was weaker Tuesday morning Doctors are in constant attendance upon the sufferer who is now at Clandeboye 0 NATIONAL CATHOLIC FEDERATION The first meeting of the National Ex ecutive Committee of the American Fed eration of Catholic Societies was held at Columbus 0 last Sunday the members present being Chairman P N Mooney of Cleveland Thomas B Minahan of Columbus George Gibbons of Philadel phia Henry Fries of Erie Anthony Matre of Cincinnati and E O Reardon of Anderson Ind The Federation will establish permanent headquarters at Cin cinnati in charge of National Secretary Matre who was authorized to employan assistant For the purpose of meeting the expenses of maintaining the national headquarters and conducting the work of the Federation a per capita tax of three cents per member was ordered levied upon the 300000 now affiliated to be collected by the individual societies and turned into the national treasury Copies of the national constitution were ordered printed for distribution after which State Federations will be rapidly perfected The Ohio State Federation also held its annual meeting at the same time and place with a very fair attendance of dele gates It was voted to revise the con stitution so as to conform with that of the national body and this will furnish a copy for other States The election of officers resulted as follows President T B Minahan Columbus Vice President R P Burkhardt Day ton Secretary Anthony Matre Cincinna- tifreeaurerW A Manning Cleveland r

lordism I DECLARES AGAINST PHYSICAL FORCE In the course of an able address on The Past and Present in Ireland at the Athenscum in Cork Ireland Father Kavanagh a greatgrand nephew of Father Murphy so patriotically identi fied with the Wexford uprising of 98 saidIreland has kept her faith perhaps she may regain her liberty But the reverend lecturer was convinced Ireland would only regain her liberty when Eng land was powerless to prevent her Many he said look to the work our Par liamentarians are engaged in as the only means of national salvation while others look upon the work as useless I confess I can not agree with either Though I am not over sanguine with regard to the result of the labors of the Parlia mentary party yet I consider such a party as a necessary institution in our present circumstances I would ask those who say that the party is useless to tell us what have they to substitute for it That it has done some good I think can not be denied It can not be denied that it has shattered if not destroyed the incubus of landlordism That surely is something to its credit If it has not broken the foreign yoke it has some what lightened it and if it still weighs heavily upon us it has not yet crushed us to death If we refuse to send our members to the British Parliament the Unionists of this country will send theirs The Government then would deal with Ireland as it wished and would probably begin with repealing all the laws passed in later years in favor of agricultural tenants and would replace tile landlord yoke on their necks while every position on every public board in Irelandwould be filled with nominees of the Government Some enthusiastic young friend may say why not hove re course to physical force as a means of regaining our liberty But we have none Talking physical force reminds me of the old receipt for the making of hare soup first catch your hare so you must first have physical force before you can make use of it Just think of the actual num ber of physical force Nationalists in Ire landthat is of men who are able to bear arms and who would do so if they could procure them First subtract from the male popula tion all men under eighteen and over fifty and after fifty and before eighteen a man has not much capability of fight ing in him Take away from that number all the Unionists about one third of the whole number Subtract also all the police on active service and out of it and all their relatives subtract also the num erous and cringing crowd who in various situations hang on to the skirts of the Government and also the great majority of well todo who in this as in every country are opposed to all revolutionary changes In mere point of numbers then how do the physical force men of Ireland stand with regard to the com blued male population of England Wales and Scotland Why we have not one fighting man to their hundred and though Irishmen were as big as Fion MCoul one of them could not fight suc cessfully against a hundred Strength and valor alone in these days of machine guns and longdistance shooting do not avail much Continuing Father Kava nagh said the Boers for instance may be pointed at as an example but there the circumstances were entirely different every Boer was a marksman they had am munition leaders training and their country was favorable for warfare In Ireland not a man in a hundred if a modern rifle were put into his hands to morrow could hit a hay stack at 500 yards distance Admitting that we can not wrest our freedom from England by force of arms let us briefly review the means of bettering our condition that lie within our reach The United Irish League is one of them though not the most important but important enough to be seriously considered The aim of the League is an excellent oneto make the tillers of the soil its owners But the League must add to their utility by earnest work in other directions It must advocate the language movement and that for the encouragement of Irish manufactures which is not to be done efficiently by having mere empty resolu tions always in the English language but must give actual help to these great movements o ANNUAL

Arrogant Demand For Uncon ditional Surrender a Blunder PROSPERITY TURNED TO DESOLATION Addressing his constituents at Aber deen before the opening of Parliament Mr Bryce declared for hoinerule for Ire land and expressed the hope that no Liberal would repudiate the principles embraced in the Gladstone home rule bills Proceeding to South African af fairs the brave Scotchman said What do we see now in South Africa Prosperity turned to desolation and loyal subjects to rebels The two Re publics have been devastated from end to end the live stock killed the farms burned the irrigation dams broken the fruit trees cut down the very plows destroyed The state of Cape Colony is even worse Martial law prevails every where and under it men who were three years ago contented subjects are kept in prison some without trial some under suppressedall stitution suspended everywhere intense bitterness between Englishmen and Dutchmen who before had lived in har mony and great irritation on the part of Englishmen as well as Dutchmen at the oppresions of martial law the great bulk of the Dutch embittered against British rule and most of the younger Dutch in arms against us Meanwhile we lave spent two hundred mlllons of money we are entering on a period of industrial de pression already We have thrown into the bottomless pit of war expenditure all the savings made during fifty years and the national debt is reaching the point at which it stood at the end of the Crimean war We have lost some thirty or forty thousand British lives and have darkened many a British home This iis not all We have made all Europe hostile to us What has brought about the change Not the war merely but the way in which the war has been con ducted The fault lies with those who have shown in the conduct of this war an amazing and constantly recurring want of foresight and judgment Has any Ministry since that which lost uo the American colonies shown such an abso lute lack of wisdom or knowledge of the most ordinary power of comprehending the men they had to deal with and foreseeing the consequences of their own action We do not know half or a tenth of what is being done under martial law but we know that many men have been hanged and we know that the state of feeling among the Dutch has been ren dered tenfold more bitter by its admin istration What sort of effect must be produced do you think by sucli detest ableconduct as that of forcing innocent private citizens accused of no offense to be present at the hanging of their own townsmen and friends Then came that melancholy sequel of the farmburning the gathering of women and children within the concentration camps In these camps 11000 children alone had died in the seven months up to Novem ber last No inhumanity was intended there was only a total want of foresight If these camps were a necessary conse quence of the devastation of the country then either the country ought not to have been devastated or proper arrange ments ought to have lien made to pre vent this frightful loss of life Why were these unhappy people kept far inland when it would have been so much better to carry them down by rail to the coast where they could have been far better cared for and the railways set free for the carrying of supplies to our troops That we hear is to be done now but meantime eleven thousand children alone besides women have perished Hut of all the blunders com mitted by the Ministry the gravest has been their persistence the demand for unconditional surrender and the con temptuous refusal to enter on the negoti ations proposed by the two Republics in May 1000 The arrogant demand for unconditional surrender has been per sisted in ever since save at one moment and then the terms proposed by Lord Kitchener were rejected by the interference of Sir Alfred Milner and the Colonial Secretary If the strife is ended on such terms which we can give and the Boers can accept and I belieye such terms can be fqund you will assuage bitterness you will place on the honor able spirits among them a check well worth having you will lay the best and surest foundation for nn enduring settle went These considerations have re cently been put by Lord Rosebery with so much force clearness and point that Twill not dwell on them further What he has said abont the resumption of negotiations and the need rOC liberal 11jlmeutoftheMiultry11jl some 0pJM lIntefud ri- G speakers With certain parts of his speech many of us do not agree but the parts with which we do agree are so numerousand at this moment so impor tant that we may welcome his powerful aid He recognized the extreme gravity of the position and calls for a change of policy Ministers admit no error and wish to persevere in their unhappy course He is for a generous peace they are for remorseless war Nor speaking for myself do I find anything to object to in his remarks on the clean slate for I take him to mean no more than that jve must get rid of top heavy programmes that we must look at the present political position as practical men and concentrate bur efforts on the measures which we have a fair chance of carrying This is souud advice This war we condemn because we want to save South Africa for the empire and the action of the Ministers is calculated first to ruin and then to lose South Af rica What I do urge is that the terms to be given to the Boers should be gener ous they should include grants for restocking the desolated territories they should include a large measure of local autonomy as soon as order has been com pletely restored for that must of course precede any settlement they should I think include a separation of the Rand mining basin front the pastoral district they should include an amnesty so framed as not to cover acts of cruelty or brigand age and which should be made contin gent on a prompt acceptance of the condi lions of peace It is a great mistake to think harsh measures more likely to se cure tranquility and obedience than len ient ones Dismiss all thoughts of re venge British supremacy has been amply asserted You are told that there are divisions in the Liberal party I regret them and lest I should seem to accentu ate them I will say no more than this one wordwhich justice requires Sir K Campbell Bannerman is in no wise to blame for them for no man could have shown not only more energy and earn estness but more unselfishness and for bearance than he has shown for the past three years Surely the time has come when the general sentiment of the nation should arrest the misguided policy or rather the helpless drifting of these last few years and demand a return to the principles under which Britain was pros perous and united at home strong and respected abroad finding In the attach ment of all her colonies the finest bulwark of her empire JACK MURPHY WINS Gov DurbIn Appoints Him to Succeed H M Frank There was general rejoicing in Jeffer sonville last Satnrdey night when

last of a gen eration that seems to have no successor He saw all his friends and contemporaries pass awayTenny son Cardinal Newman Words worthbut he lived on and sang bravely to the last Aubrey De Vere was not a popu lar poet He was attuned to such a high key his muse was inspired with such lofty thoughts and senti ments that he appealed to the schol arly more than to the masses But all his writings shed luster on the land of his birthIrelandand his works should be more widely known especially by Catholics as he was the greatest Catholic poet of the last century In the dozen or so volumes which he has left behind this little sonnet will be found characteristic of the whole Sad is our youth for it is ever going Crumbling away beneath our feet Sad is our life for onward it is flowing- In current unperceived because so fleet Sad are our hopes for they were sweet In sowing But tares selfsown have overtopped- the wheat Sad are our joys for they were sweet in blooming Andstill oh still their dying breath is sweet And sweet is youth although it hath be reft us Of that which made our childhood sweeter still And sweet is middle life for it hath left us A nearer good to cure an

Redmond and Devlin are on the high sea en route for this country to resume the tour in bee half of the United Irish League- That they will be enthusiastically greeted everywhere is assuCel Whatever differences of opinion as to policy exist among Irishmen it is conceded that the United Irish League represents the largest and leading Irish organization and is prominently and actively before the public in its efforts for reform of Irish grievances and advancement of Irish interests As representatives of such an organization Messrs Redmond arid Devlin will be welcomed encouraged and aided iF

strengthened THE COLONIES KICK When the British Government in deference to protests and appeals of home cattle raisers and butchers announced that foreign bids would be barred in contracting for the meat supply to the army in South Africa it was approved as just that the people who paid the taxes to carryon the war should be given the contracts in preference to Americans even at a higher price It was of course supposed that this would mean the expenditure of the entire amount in England though it was manifestly a mistake as the cattle supply of England is inadequate for the home demand The colonial cattle men realized this and ex pected to furnish the needed cattle to fill out the contracts But the contractors were looking out for No Ia characteristic of the English trader British capital is largely invested in Argentina South Americain cattle ranches and they wanted a market The cattle as well as the sheep for the army contracts come from Argentina and the money goes to Argentina in stead of the British colonial cattle men who expected and were so eagerly anticipating a demand for their cattle at good prices The result is a vigorous protest from the Governments of the Aus tralian provinces and New Zealand to the British War Office These colonies not only pay taxes to carry on the war and have their trade restricted as a result in common with all British subjects but they have furnished troops and are called on for additional contingents and feel that when one of their chief products is required by the home Government they and not a for eign country should be patronized The protest condemns this action of the British Government as evidence of reprehensible indifference to the claims to the colonies illy accord ing with the expressions of imperial solidarity poor repayment for the sacrifices of the colonists and generally as grave injustice It seems unlikely that the call for additional troops from the colonies will be complied with On the contrary the incident will encourage the col onies to demand more independence of imperial control in their home government and trade CANT HEAD HIM OFF The difficult industrial and commercial problem

is eagerly sought and interviewed and usually frankly stales his views of the sit uation which are all alike discouraging to the Europeans particu larly as conditions and results prove them correct American products are pushing other products in all the markets of the world and Eng land and Germany are hardest pressed their home market as well as export trade being invaded Germany is aroused over a new tariff to exclude American products But too drastic a measure would also practically exclude German products from the American mar e rn kets Which is the least damaging end of the dilemma is the problem itsGermany The frankness and indifference of the Americans as to what course s foreign Governments may adopt iis baffling to their competitors They seem to care little they are pushing ahead If barred out of the home markets they will curtail their pur chases in such home markets ant enter more earnestly in competition in the worlds export trade with countries that are not competitors Thus the foreigner is given the alternative of allowing American competition in his home market or losing American trade and meeting American competition in all export markets And there seems no way to head off the American from one or the other alternative alike dis astrous to Europe The real situation as well as the American trade policy is fully illus trated by Charles M Schwab Pres ident of the United States Steel Corporation who said in his Berlin interviewNaturally it is to Americas interest that the German tariff should not be increased but I do not think we can expect Germany not to increase her tariff that it will really protect her home market from our competition If Ger many does not raise the tariff it means that our highly finished goods as well as our coarser products will take this market American exporters quite ex pect Germanys tariff f to go up It is not In Germany France pr Austria that we can sell largely Gut in England Russia Turkey and China and all the free markets where Germany and England find outlets Time is the only element and it will not be a very long time either until they arc all ours An instance of increase in Ameri can trade which is causing depres sion and alarm in Englandand Germany is furnished in the sup plying of Russias demand for agri cultural machines and implements nearly all of which until recently came from England

implements are taking the Russian markets Last year the American shipments to Russian ports aggregated 33000 tons Thus early in this year five ships are loading at New York and Philadelphia with 36000

Meet f ESTABLISHES PRIVILEGED CLASS The firemens pension bittas gen erally understood to be to pension fire men disabled in the service by accident or infirmity is so unobjectionable thatt the bill bearing that title passed the House at Frankfort without opposition and is now pending in the Senate Its true character has become known and 1Itt concealging two rather large coons in the wood pile Firemens pension bill It pro thee salaries of the Chief Assistant Chiefs and other officers of the Louisville Fire Department who receive large salaries whoo get 225 per day This besides the deception is a rank injustice and a piece of impertinence However the law may be twisted the Legislature has no equitable right to fix the salaries of city employes the city hires and pays them and has the sole equitable right to fix the rate of pay This is the first coon The other coon Is in the provision for pensions Every fireman serving twenty years is to be retired on half pay regard less of his physical condition or needs This establishes a privileged class to be remaindesr of their natural lives without rendering any further service even though they have been fully paid for their voluntary service and are in no way incapacitated thisepension law the Fire Department will become a very costly affair and with the bysyear on half pay ranging from 35 the 145 per month the amount required t pay them will soon be an immense extra Toad to carry in addition to the proper costof the department There can be no plausible defense of this kind of pension ing No fireman even if entirely inca pacitated neds horshould the city be required to pay him any such sum as the bill proposes and to provide for such payments by the city indiscriminately including ablebodied men not in need makes the proposed bill a raid on the city treasury A firemans pension bill providing only for reasonable pensions to firemen incapacitated by Injury sickness or infirmity regardless of term of service will be generally satisfactory Any scheme of the Legislature to arbitrarily fix salaries of city employes or to foist the burden of indiscriminate pensions at such rates for firemen or any others is deserving of popular condemnation- If the pending bill can not be amended by eliminating the salary provision and limiting the pensions toa reasonable amount to disabled firemen it ought to be knocked on the head by the Senate If it should pass Goy Beckham will have a chance to make friends in this city by swinging the veto ax and kill ing It WILL MAKE GOOD RACE Will Sweeney a well known and popu lar

the Cath dral of the Immaculate Conception Albany N Ytook occasion to refer t the oath which King Edward VII wi take at his coronation The Bishop sai he wished the world and especially a Catholics to know just what reference the oath contained and while the Kin of England was swearing that the do trine of the divine presence in the mo blessed eucbarist was false and the sacr ficeof the mass a superstition he wante every Catholic to raise his heart to tt Almighty and make a most devout act faith Unless Parliament should chang this oath the Bishop declared Kin Edward would as ruler of his kingdotr insult millous of Catholic subjects whe he took itIIWe must throw aside a sentiment we must look at the facts a they are in cold reality declared tt BishopIIIf King Edward were to tak the oath now he would be obliged t i swear that the eucharist is not the bod and blood soul and divinity of our divin I Lord under the appearance of bread an wine and he would have to swear tba this divine sacrifice of the mass which w are offering here is a superstition or fable Qn the day of the coronation o i the King of England I want every Call to pray fervently to God to repeat th Apostles
