Asked Irish Party Adopts and Urges Amendments to Kings Address DEBATE IN THE HOUSE OF COMMONS Ireland has not had long to wait for the evidence of the progress made by her cause during the recess of Parliament The revival of the jubilee coercion act has brought the Irish question to the very front of Imperial issues The first business of the House of Commons re lated to Ireland Earl Percy thought that Mr A Lynchs return for Galway constituted a breach of privilege It was a curious motion on which the Speaker put his foot at once The return did not in any way impugn the conduct of the House But this did not suffice for Mr Winston Churchill Perhaps he bad ashore in the conception of the great project that Earl Percy had hoped to carry out In tones of surprised rebuke Mr Churchill inquired whether he was to understand that the election of a rebel did not constitute an insult to the House The Speaker was not properly impressed by Mr Churchills manner andinformed him in freezing tones that he did not propose to argue his ruling There was a laugh and Mr Churchillsubsided The Speaker next declined to allow Mr MacNeill to raise the imprisonment of Mr Conor OKelly as a matter of priv ilege True the very reason which he declined to allow Earl Percy to proceed was present in the case of Mr Conor OKelly But Mr Gully would not al low Mr MacNeill either to submit any reason for contesting his ruling and the matter dropped- In the debate on the Kings address the rival policies of home rule and coer don were once again placed formallyybc fore the country Ireland and South Africa the two problems of empire were the only topics regarded worth serious reference by the English political leadersSir CampbellBanuerman seized the opportunity to reaffirm the Glad Etonian faith that is in him on the Government of Ireland If the Liberal slate is to be cleaned it is only he makes clear that the old Irish policy shall be rewritten In clearer and more legible characters The state of Ireland said the Liberal leader appears to me to be serious in the highest degree from every point of view It is evident that the policy of killing a certain thing by kind ness has not succeeded The revival of coercion is the gravest domestic event of r the year It is not a favorable accom paniment of the laud bill The contem plation of the fact that the Government after all they had tried and done are floundering in the old familiar traditional way between concession and coercion is calculated to confirm us in our convic tion of the wisdom of the policy towards Ireland and the government of Ireland which has been and is the remedy approved by the Liberal Party Mr Balfour accepted the issue but acknowledged that no Government could escape from the Irish question Such a prompt fruition from the labors that produced unity in the Irish ranks will encourage the Irish representatives and Irish people to renewed efforts and renewed sacrifices No tinkering of the rules of the House of Commons no inroad on the fundamental right of the Irish people in the matter of representa tion no fraud upon the constitutional safegaurds of liberty in Ireland can check the advance of the cause off national selfgovernment so long as the Irish people are united And the more vigorously that cause is prosecuted th more speedily other Irish questions will be brought to settlement In this way the land purchase acts the local gov ernment act and other minor measures were won and it in this way the progress of reform upon other questions iis best quickened Thus Lord Lytton the Unionist pee who was selected to second the address in the House of Lords seeing that a coercion policy could not stand alone even in that chamber expressed the hope that the Government would be able before long to introduce a measure which would afford to the Roman Cath olics of Ireland the opportunity of university education ThP meeting of the Irish Party resulted in thjfdraftiug of several amendments to the Kings address These amendments I cover every branch of Irish administra tion and the war Among them were the followingJobnRedmondto add at end And we humbly represent to Your Majesty thatt the refusal of Your Majestys Govern ment to holdout any hope to the people of Ireland of a settlement on the IrishI land question by a comprehensive mess ure of compulsory sale of the landlord a interest to the occupying tenant aad by D a the reorganisation of the CongestedI a Districts Board wick large resources d U with compulsory powers of acquiring land has given rise to widespread dis content and agitation in Ireland that the government of Ireland instead of apply ing itself to the removal of grievances under which the people suffer and so abating the cause of reasonable discontent and of agitation have after a period of nine years and at a time wHen Ireland iis absolutely free from agrarian crime put the coercion act once more into opera tion suppressed the right of free speech dispersed legal and peaceable meetings with unprovoked and brutal violence and used coercion courts presided over by magistrates removable at the pleasure of the executive to send to jail without trial members of this house and other citizens of Ireland for no other offense than asserting their right to address their constituents and fellow citizens in public meeting assembled and finally to repre sent to Your Majesty that the govern ment of Ireland is not supported by the opinion of the vast majority of the peo pie of Ireland and that the condition of that country demands the serious and immediate attention of Parliament with ia view to the establishment of harmony between the Government and the great majority of the people John Dillon And we humbly repre sent to Your Majesty that the systematic devastation of the South African republic and the wholesale capture of the women and children of the burghers and their imprisonment in insanitary camps where insufficient and unsuitable food is sup plied is contrary to the recognized usages of civilized war and has already caused the deaths of many thousands of women and children that such methods of carrying on war are barbarous and have aroused the indignation of the whole civilized world and also of Great BritainMr II Clancy Humbly to submit to Your Majesty that the overtaxation of Ireland established by the recent Royal Commission on Financial Relations constitutes a serious and pressing griev ance as regards that country and demands the early attention of Your Majestys Government with a view to its removal GENEROUS AND HONEST Thos R Hackett Once Weal thy Dies Poor and Homeless Thomas R Hackett at one time a wealthy wholesale liquor dealer of this cidydiedptthehome 90hcMitle Sis ters of the Poor last Tuesday penniless and all but friendless The funeral services were held in the Cathedral of which he was in former years a prominent and generous member and the burial in St Louis cemetery Wednesday morning Mr Hackett was born in Franklin Ky where he began life as clerk in a grocery of which he later became pro prietor In 1861 he came to Louisville and formed a partnership with John D Otter in the wholesale grocery business which prospered He withdrew from this firm and opened a wholesale liquor house on Sixth near Market and was soon considered one of the wealthiest busi ness men of this city He took an active interest in local politics serving two terms as Council man for the Eighth ward iI Though energetic and successful as a business man making money easily and plentifully Mr Hacketts weakness was his big heart He was genial and spent I money freely lavish in charity being frequently Imposed upon and devoted toII his friends whom be aided liberally in every way his purse being ever open and his indorsement ever ready It was this devotion to friends that swept away his fortune Those to whom he had advanced money and those for whom he had indorsed went down in the financial fI crash of twenty years ago and Mr Hackett freely giving up his all went down to poverty his only regret being he had not enough to pay allin full that no one should lose I With his inherent energy he made several attempts to recoup his lost trade that he might pay up the debts of his friends for he was conscientiously honest and grieved that his indorsement should be the cause of loss to any but he lacked capital and was too generous to go slow Finally failing health and age incapaci andepenniless For a time lie was aided by friends and about a year ago went to the Little Sisters to end his days LENT andrPrayer Before the Joy ous Easter With Ash Wednesday began the peni tential season of Lent commemorating the forty days of fasting and prayer of Christ in the wilderness In all our churches last Wednesday was the bless ing of ashes and their distribution to the laity in the sign of the cross on the fore head with the words Remember thou art dust and unto dust thou shalt re turn1

BRANNAN Sustains the lInfallibility offttthe Catholic Church by Unassailable Logic aid Unanswer able Ar umfeht 51 1 His Forcible and Powerful Lecture Under the Aus pices of the Knights Of Columbus Wednesday Might The announcement that Father P F Brannan of Dallas Texas would deliver his famous lecture The Church of Jesus Christ is Infallible at Elks Hail Wednesday night under the auspices iof the Knights of Columbus drew forth a large and appreciative audience The reverend gentleman is a native iof Georgia and was with Buregard and Lee in the civil war after which li e went to Texas where he became Mayo of the town of Weatherford He was also elected County Attorney and as the law partner of Judge George Clark o f Waco enjoyed a large and lucrative practice which he relinquished to become a priest of God His lecture was brilliant convincing and at times humor ous and for two hours his hearers were heldspellbound by his splendid oratory and those present feel greatly indebted to the Knights for the rare treat Father Brannan spoke as follows- Interpreting the Bible What do we understand by the Infalll bllltjr of the church It means that the church cannot teach anything but the truth What also ought to be expected of the church of Jesus Christ Our Protestant friends say that the Bl ble the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible Interpreted by every man for himself Is the rule of things The Cath olio church says tho Bible is all right but you have no right to interpret the laws of the eternal God for yourself and there was never a government in thin world and never will be that allowed the people to read and Interpret Its law for themselves Suppose you gave the statutes of Kentucky to every manin Kentucky and said Hero are the laws of Kentucky read and Interpret them for yourself How long would you want to live Jn Kentucky You would havo the reign of the shotgun the six shooter the bowie knife and the Win Chester The man having a grievance against his neighbor would kill him The Sheriff would come to arrest him He would ex claim Dont you arrest meA The laws of my country give me the right to read and Interpret its laws for myself and my Interpretation Is I had the right to kill him and I dare you to arrest me The same principle applied to religion would give rise to a condition of spiritual an archy all over the world Not onehalf of the adult population of this country put their feet in any church The man who stops think and reason about his existence who sees that not even a drop of water can be created by man says I must have a Creator and If I am bound by State and municipal laws where are the laws of the Eternal God that made me The New Testament could not have been the rule of faith because it did not exist irom the beginning glxtyfour years passed away before St John finished his work It you maintain that the whole Bible Is the rule of faith then all the people during these sixtyodd years were damned and whom does that include Eleven of the apostles because they didnt have any Bible to read and interpret for themselvesThe Catholic Church at the Coun ell of Carthage In the fourth century separated tho true from the false and gave you the New Testament as you have It today Nearly 400 years elapsed before the people knew what the New Testa meat really was On the same principle If there is no other way to go tc heaven except to read and interpret the New Testament for yourselves then the people for 400 years went to hell Bibles Lost Books- I I want to prove that you have not got the whole Bible either the OU or the New Testament In Numbers Chapter 21 verse 14 where are the books of the Wars ot the Lord therein men tloned The Books of the Just Joshua 10 are gone St John says There are also many other things which Jesus Christ did which if they were written every one the world Itself would not be able tcu contain the things that should be writ tenJohn 21st chapter 25th verse Col chapter 4 verse 16 St Paul tailI the Colojslacs to read his epistle to the I Laodlceans Where Is that epistle Nobody i can tell sou- In 1st Corinthians St Paul says I I wrote you in a letter showing there was a prior letter to our let Corinthians Where is that first letter I The Bible therefore cannot be a com plete rule of faith because you have not got it all I The art of printing was Invented In 1440 Do you tell me that Jesus Christ knowing all things knowing that there would be no facilities for the distribution of the Bible throughout the world until the art of printing was invented would have such a doctrine established that the teo ones own taste was necessary to salva loaf Under such a rule of faith the peo pie almost all of them for 1400 years dadye It would have cost to get a Bible in the neighborhood of 13090 awl would have I required at least two years to wrKe one Yet you tell me It was accessary for a poor man with a largo fatally to support to have Ms dllble feat tt and Interpret It for himself to aye1dOIIn During I jthat pried the churofc had what Is kaewa J r7 Ias the chained bible at the vestibule ot the church Called chained sometimes now in derision bynonCathollc This was for the convenience tof the poor man who could read it If he desired The church did not desire to keep the faithful from reading the Bible If tjiat was the purpose the Bible would never have been placed there LAn Illustrative Syllogism I want to give you this syllogism ofri God cannot be from God Private Interpretation of t ie scripture opposes unity of faith nvhlcl Is the de sign of God t Therefore

to be understood which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest as they do alsq the other scriptures unto their own destruction Against Prlyate Interpretation This very Protestant Bible states that the private Interpretation will lead one down to hell If every man has the right to Interpret the scriptures for himself what right has God to damn a man for exercising that right God can do no wrong Therefore man has not that rightI am going to show you from the Protestant Bible another thing James fifth chapter verses 14 and 15 Is any sick among you Let him call for the elders of the church and let them pray over him anointing him with oil In the name of the Lord And the prayer ot faith shall save tho sick and the Lord shall raise him up and if he have com mitted sins they shall be forgiven him Who said that The apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ What llanguage did he speak The language ot Inspiration The language of inspiration Is that of the Holy Ghost Who Is the Holy Ghost God It the Catholics do that very thing exactly in conformity with the spirit anti letter of this portion of the Scripture there are many who sneer and say Roman superstition mumbling prayers over the elck and anointing with oils Hero Is the Eternal God who says to do It When does a man want to gets 1d of his sins more than at any other time It 1Is when time Is casting a lengthening shadow across thq shores of eternity Yet we are told that the poor Catholics do not know a blessed thing about the Bl ble Keeping the Sabbath Why do you keep Sunday holy Find In the Bible anywhere where you are bound to keep Sunday holy It says Remember keep holy the Sabbath day Any man of information knows that the Sabbath day Is Saturday and the last day of the week What becomes of those who believe in the Bible the whole Bible and nothing but the Bible as their rule of faith when the Bible demands specifical Ily and God from Mount BInal demanded Remember keep holy the Sabbath day Do they do it Not at all What authority have they for not doing It That old Catholic church The apostles changed the observance from the last to the first day of the week to commemorate the resurrection of our Lord and the descent of tho Holy Ghost upon the apostles Matthew xxvlll 181020 And Jesus came and spake unto them saying All power is given unto me In heaven and In earth Go ye therefore and teach all na tions baptizing them In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the HolY Ghost Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I havo commanded you and 101 am with you alway oven unto the end of the world Did He

fay There are so many Irish and French and Poles and all that kind In the Catholic church What do you prove by that The church of Jesus Christ is mad for everybody When John sent word to him to find

archbishops bish priests Also of men who were lnmoua in literature art and science Ho then went on to show the moral cowardice of people who would rather re main outside the faith than to Incur the Itspleasuro and temporal disadvantages possibly attendant on Joining the Catholic Church He recited many instances of people who had become converts and stAted that the best Catholics were made ot

the pupils of the Presenta tion Academy and they proved perhaps the most enjoyable it has ever been the pleasure of the friends of that excellent educational institution to attend The day was devoted almost entirely to the music of the two famed composers Verdi and Nevin and alternately the audience was thrilled and entertained by the emotional and soulstirring music of the former and then calmed by the soothing dreamy strains of the latter The pupils all acquitted themselves admirably their renditions being very creditable to both themselves and their teachers Miss Olivia Kelty was first on the programme with a pleasing solo and by her interpretation displayed appreciation and understanding of the great composers thoughts Miss Katherine McCluskey sang a very touching songIMighty Lak a Rose from Nevin in which she displayed ex quisite taste and feeling Several selec tions from Verdis II Trovatore followed The beautiful passages Altl I have sighed to rest me and the Miserere were artistically played by Misses Gross Danenhold and Dant Special praise should be given Miss Margaret Norton who executed The Anvil Chorus splendidly and with ex cellent touch eliciting the hearty applause of all present The last num ber given by the juvenile violinists of the academy was Kevins graceful but dainty Narcissus They played 1it remarkably well and deserve special mention as does also the artistic work of Misses M Hannon M Tierney and M BoscheAt conclusion of the programm the audience was invited to examine the monthly test work of the pupils on exhi bition in the hall Their papers were very neat and displayed accuracy and ia thorough knowledge of their work characteristics which mark every depart ment of the Presentation Academy BLESSED STATIONS St Williams Church Was

insults have usually been aimed at the Irish and were attributed to the Times Anglo mania and there were those who doubted that bigotry was the real source of its malignity In the Times of last

relics those of Irish saints or the ceremony in an Irish church the above slurh might have been expected as everybody knows the Times dont like the Irish nohow But they were not irish relics and the ceremony was in a German church The Times al ways especially in election cam paigns has lauded and flattered the Germans so it is not due to antiGerman prejudice Perhaps the Times is unaware of the fact that a large proportion of our Germans are Catholics and the most devout Catholics at that and thought by slandering and insult lug Catholics to please the small faction of bigoted German infidels and church haters Whatever the purpose the source of the vulgar calumny is plain Had the Catholics made any t public demonstration the ceremony arranged to occur in a public building oron the streets involving the presence of public officials or in any way been thrust upon the attention of nonCatholics there might have been some excuse for disapprovaLand condemnation but the entire

The destiny ofa nation ought to be determined not by the opinion of other nations but by the opinion of the nation itself To decide whether they are well governed or not or rather whether the degree of extortion corruption or cruelty to which they are subject is sufficient to justify armed resistance is for those who live under that Government not for those who being exempt from its oppres sion feel a sentimental or a theological interest in its continuance and accepting those principles demanding that the opinions of Nationalist Ireland be re spected and conceded and Ireland be no longer prevented from managing her own local and national affairs in an Irish Parliament Strong and unequivocal language that twenty years ago would have been regarded as treason and resulted in all the participants of that meeting being jailed and trans ported to a penal colony And this not in Ireland but in Scot land After months of scheming and promises of early peace in South Africa the holders of Kaffir stocks the combined gold mines of South Africa have succeeded in advanc ing its quoted price in the London market and on this basis financiers and stock brokers are striving to start a boom to revive the all but lifeless London exchange The Kaffir strength however is so clearly only the result of manipula tion and bysales of holders of the stock that the public are wary and do not respond to the whoopup and open their strong boxes tp put their cash in circulation The real trouble with the English markets are loss of trade and confidence Invested capital is paying nothing or little and is endangered by the trend of affairs Many have already lost heavily and those having money fear to risk it except at rates too high for investment The Kaffir boom willt prove a failure and its collapse will only tend to in crease distrust make money more stringent and a restoration of con deuce more difficuty Lord RpberU the CdmWatoderrin Chief of the Britiah army jii out of =t favor at the War Office Little Bobs is too much of a soldier to second the management of affairs by Secretary Brodrick his depart I ment superior who is not a soldier but assumes to conduct campaigns in the field of which he knows nothing and is making a mess Lord Roberts can not prevent this assumption but he declines to shoulder even the appearance of responsibility by indorsing or is suing such commands The glory and the blame fallon Brodrick Hence Lord Roberts has lost the favor of the War Office since Brod rick is beingcriticised unfavorably for the results and nonresults of the South African war But Little Bobs holds on to the honors and emoluments of his position despite Brodricks efforts to make him a mere figurehead He is going through the ordeal with a clean record while Brodrick is kept busy explaining to the critics Hold on there The capitol bill will fail for the same penurious reason that it has always failed Now Mr McDonald proposes that the Legislature authorize the city of Louisville to issue 2000000 bonds to build a State capitol in this city Not on your life though the Legislature may pass such a bill and put the cost on this city Let Kentucky build a capitol or do without Louisville has enough to do to carry her own burdens es pecially with such hostile Legisla tures as we have had without pay ing for a new State capitol The Times claims to be an organ of the Democratic party which proclaims as its fundamental prin ciple equal and just rights to all unyielding opposition to proscrip tion because of religion or nation ality and prides itself on its overthrow of KnowNothingism years ago There is evidently an inconsistency somewhere Does the Times really represent the Democratic party of today or is it simply a case of a snake in a Demo cratic nest It develops that Boer Com mander Scheepers was sick and wounded unto death when cap tured that he was convicted and ordered shot for brutal murders on the evidence of Kaffirs only and finally that he was carried out on a stretcher 4n a dying condition and shot while lying helpless Revolting as this is what else could be expected of Kitchener The Commercial is right Louis ville may have themumps and the grumps but it is the chumps of high and low degree here and in Frankfort who give it to Louisville in the neck JEWS ARE EQUAL William E Curtis must surprise several Jews by his letter from Rome Among other things he says There is no antiSemitic movement in Italy as there is in the rest of Europe It is a somewhat remarkable fact that in Rome the headquarters of the Catholic church Jews are received in society and have the same privileges in commerce the same prominence in politics and the same free dom of conscience as other races while in Germany they are not recognized as equals in Prance and Austria they are persecuted in Spain and Russia they are subjected to impositions that are often cruel as well as unjust In Venice Genoa Milan Naples and other cities of Italy no questions are ever asked concerning the ancestry of respectable people the fact that they may have de scended from Jews is a matter of no more interest than if their forefathers were Swedes or Irishmen Occasionally a Jew is received by the Holy Father upon the same footing as a Christian and the gossips of the Vatican tell an in teresting story of an audience granted to a daughter of the Frankfort branch of the Rothschild family in 1898 She is the Princess of Wagram her husband being the grandson of Napoleons famous field marshal Berthier who received the title of Prince of Wagram in recognition for his gallantry at the battle of that name As a matter of fact If one Is looking for the Brotherhood of Man he will find it best exemplified in the Cath otic church GREAT BAZAR The bazar

impressive and solemn services of the Catholic church rind in the presence of a multitude that occupie every Inch of available space 1il1 St Martins church were unveilc the sacred relics of two of tbe earliest Christian martyrs St Mat nus Roman centurion and St Dot osa Roman virgin who gave up their lives for religion in the year 308 A D a historical sketch of whose lives and cruel death appeared in these columns several weeks ago Solem vespers was sung with Monsignor Zablt as celebrant assisted by Rev Fathers Bachmann and Thome The sermon was preached by the gifted Father J B Peifei of St Helenas church this city and was interesting throughout Speaking of the solemn occasion for which the peopl were gathered he told of the finding of the relics and the manner in which tbey Lad been secured by Monsignor Zable and brought to Louisville They were discovered in the catacombs of Rom over three hundred years ago the sarcophagus bearing the following inscription yl St Magnus Centurion Rome St Bonosa Virgin Rome Mart 308 A D With the sarcophagus was found two ollles containing blood an absolute proof that the remains were those of martyrs who had sacrificed their lives for the cause of Christ and the Christian faith Father Feifer said that whenever Christians were martyred in the early centuries their remains were usually Seven back to their friends It was re gutted that the body be disposed of as soon as possible It was the invariable custom that when martyrs were buried their friends or relatives would put ia bottle in the coffin If time permittee he bottle was filled with the blood of the person martyred but if not the bottti was put in empty When the sarcaphagu containing these bones was opened two bottles were found in it Then followed a lucid and scholarly discourse on the catacombs He traced their origin ant gave a vivid description of these lasting relics of an early age He said the catacombs had pot been built but were the result of the custom of the Romans at that time of digging into the earth ant mining stone for building purposes The Romans did not quarry it as it iis done now but dug a shaft similar to amine shaft of the present day and tool out the stone required by them in tha way When the persecution of the Christians became so great that they had 10 place of safety on the earth they went into the catacombs and held their meetings there and buried their dead there This furnished them a refuge until they became so numerous they could safely meet in the open It is supposed that the bones of these two martyrs were placed in the catacombs during the time the early Christians held their meetingI there Father Peifer then described a martyr He gave the scriptural defini ton of the word saying that the word martyr as understood by the Catholic hunch meant a state of almost perfection It was that state in which the nand threw off the spirit of worldinesi and drew near to the divine He said l that though nothing was known of the manner of death of the two martyrs il was known they were martyrs and were therefore entitled to the veneration of all Christians After the sermon Monsignor Zabler nd the priests left the altar in solemnI procession marching down the center aisle and returning by the side aisle tc St Josephs altar followed by the entire assemblage Whenthe altar was reachedI the veil was withdrawn exposing tc view the sacred remains of St Magnus I in a handsome marble and glass case Then proceeding to the altar of the messed Virgin another similar case was unveiled and the relics of St Bonosa the martyr virgin were revealed to all presentIt melt and recited the Litany of the Saints followed by the benediction During all this time not a person left the sacred edifice and for fully an Lout afterward
