Work Inaugurated bu Rev Father Thomas Joyce and Continuediby His Distin guished SuccessorsE f i We regret that we have not the data to hand to give a sketch worthy of Stt Patricks the first Irish Catholic church in this city About 1850 the work of widening the Louisville and Portland canal brought several hundred Irish Catholic laborers and their families who built the shanties on leased ground on High street from Fifteenth street to Portland and most of the people on Tenth Eleventh and Twelfth streets were Irish Catholics To provide them with a church the parish of St Patrick was cut off from the Cathedral and its bounds were from Tenth to Twentysixth or Shippingport road as it was then known and from the river to Walnut streeta large territory but sparsely settled below Fifteenth and south of High being farms commons and ponds with no streets and few houses Rev Thomas Joyce Father Tom he was af fectionately called an humble and zeal ous priest and tireless worker was the first pastor The first church was on the btti1dJngsecond floor was the boys school with about fifty scholars ranging from the tots to the big boys in charge of the Xaverian Brothers Ignatius Stephen and Bernard who lived for a time in a small room on the unfinished third floor Brother Paul having charge later The girls school of about fifty scholarsitt charge of the Sisters of Nazareth occu pleda twostory house across Pirtle street later occupying the ground floor of the school building after the dedica I ion of the new church Father Joyce lived frugally in a small two room annex to the church and as he could not until years later afford a horse he tramped over his large parish often at night ministering to his flock and soliciting their mites to pay for the building With the growth of the city westward the con gregation increassd Father Joyces hope was to build a pastors residence and- a church worthy of Irelands patron saint on the large lot at Thirteenth and Market which was gratified as he built both occupying the residence and having the church dedicated in the early sties though he did not live to see the latter finished paid for and consecrated dying in 1867 Rev M D Lawler became pastor in 1808 and having rare executive ability energy and tact of dealing with the ped pie he soon overcame difficulties won the confidence and love of his flock and under his pastorate St Patricks church and schools progressed to the foremost in the city The congregation grew to over 800 families the church was crowded at all services and in the threestory school building several hundred scholars were taught from the primary to the higher studies the boys being under direction of Brother Stanislaus It is the scholars of those days of St Patricks schools who have attained success and prominence in this city and elsewhere as many of them moved to other States and the Wild West Father Lawler was a disciplinarian and encouraged organized effort among young and old and with the aid of his assistant Rev Dominic Crane St Patricks congregation became noted for its societies earnestness and unity in parish work and prominent in all public celebrations There were sodalities of children young ladies and young men dramatic and debating clubs temperance cadets and society benevolent society St Vincent de Paul Ladies Altar So ciety and St Josephs Aid Nearly all those societies had regalias and banners and several had libraries In all parish work the committees to aid the pastor were selected from these societies and thus the entire congregation young and old were united and active in the work All these societies approached the sacra ments at regular stated times in full regalia but it was the St Patricks day celebration that was the annual feast dayFather Lawlers ambition was to pay off the church debt purchase the ad joining lot and enlarge the pastors residence put a spire on the church tend have it consecrated all of wiiicn he ac complished He died in 1893 Right Rev Mgr Thomas F Gambon was appointed pastor shortly after the death of Father Lawler but the innova tion of railroads depots warehouses and factories had caused a large portion of the congregation to move to the western and southern suburbs and many of the young people the real active workers to other States Thus the membership of the congregation was reduced its personnel changed and the new pastor was at a great disadvantage in becoming acquaintedwith his people and taking up the parish work Instead of the old pioneer families who knew everybody and were familiar with the church affairs he had a new and strange element who must be sought out advised and in structed iin their part of the parish work while he had few of whom he could ob DR J W FOWLER Appointed State Executive Committeeman for Kentucky by the National Federa tion of Catholic Societies VY V tain information advice and assistance Father Gambon died recently and his assistant Father Kelleher is in

Its Purpose to Unite all Catholic OrganizatioiiH in This Country To Work for the Advancement and Protection of Interests To Oppose Intolerant Discrliii filiation In Enacting and U nforcing rvsrJ I STATE FEDERATIONS BEING FORMED The American Catholic Federation formed at the recent convention in Cin cinnati in which Dr J W Fowler rep resented this city is growing in popu larity throughout the country as its objects and methods become understood and its needs realized It is not intended to interfere with the autonomy or control of any organization but simply to unite them all in a federation for the mainten ance and defense of Catholic interests generally to combat intolerance and ostracism because of religion It is not to attack nor abridge the privileges of any religion but to insist upon equal and just rights to Catholics as guaranteed by law but too frequently ignored if not directly denied in many sections of the country The work of organization is being carried out carefully and thoroughly and though only a few months have elapsed since the convention much progress has been made in adding organizations and forming subordinate State county and city federations Ohio has formed a State federation and the work is being pushed throughout the counties Steps have been taken to do likewise In Indiana Pennsylvania New York New Jersey Georgia Illinois Wisconsin Louisiana New Mexico and Kentucky- Dr J W Fowler has been appointed a member of the Executive Committee for this State and is arranging for form ing a State Federation As soonos pre liminaries are arranged in other States they will form State federations The State federations will organize the county federations The three recognized units are the county federations the State federations and the national federation The county federation is intended to be composed of and to embrace the Catholic societies in any county of a Stater A county federa tion may be formed by five or more societies or by less where less than five exist in the county Every society shall be entitled to one or more delegates If several counties have organized federa tions a State federation should be formed whose duty it shall be to look after the perfecting of federation in all counties not yet federated JIM MOORE OUT James Moore for many years at 1521 Portland avenue has sold his place to Martin Ford the

100111 historic Georgetown in the District of importeance on the majestic Potomac with itsI many wrinkles defined in the cracked walls of timestained antiquated houses and n peculiar configuration of the town that gives ita humpbacked appearance in accord with its age is now the West End of Washington connected by two wooden bridges over ahighbanked creek suggesting to a quaint fancy a dame of colonial days leaning on the arm of one of her handsome modern Daughters of the American Revolution All the big buildings of the Government are on the other side of the creek striking features in the City of Magnificent Distances but the West End of Washington has at least one great structure and seat of learn ing that will perpetuate the name and fame of the oldest part of the national capital namely the Georgetown Uni versity whose organization dates back to 1798 This famous old institution is under Catholic control though distinct and from the Catholic University of iAmerica the national university of the churchErected upon a commanding eminence in the spacious and improved grounds of the American University Park the Georgetown University buildings gray and massive stand out an impressive picture to the eye more especially so in summer when the prevalence of Gods favorite color in tree and grassland lend a charm to the environments On the whole the view presented could not be otherwise than elevating and ennobling to the minds of students who come here seeking in the various departments of learning for that equipment necessary to the highest achievements in life Vast as appears the space covered by this great structure with its spacious hall and innumerable rooms for every purpose it seems inadequate to the re quirements of the institution since another large building in the central part of Washington is used for the law and medical departments of the George town University In the limit to which he is confined the correspondent of the Kentucky Irish American can ouly give a faint outline of what is embraced in the meaning of a r great university and of this one in par ticular with its 108 instructors and 725 students in all departments The man who desires to become ac complished in any of the learned profes sions can receive from the able instructors of Georgetown University the thorough inculcation of knowledge that equips him for a lawyer a doctor a teacher a clergyman or a master of any intellectual pur suit to which he may incline The splen did library of the university contains 85 000 volumes which may be supposed to embrace most all that science and genius has given the world up to date It is on intellectual treasuretrove indeed and an inexhaustible field for research Not least of all the admirable features of Georgetown University is the hospital in connection therewith which is n boon to the public The chapel where divine service is held is in keeping with all that goes to embellish and dignify this noble institution Since its organization an army of cultured and disciplined men lifeYof whom now living is said to be John T Doyle of Menlo Park Cal who gradu ated iu 1838 It may be of Interest to some of

Rev Philip J Garrigan S T D vice rector the correspondent of the Kentucky Irish inI I versity of America that will prove of Interest to every reader of the paper I Such an institution as the Catholic University of America was long desired and anxiously looked forward to by the hierarchy and the laity of the Catholic I church in America Away back in the COs it was discussed in their councils but the church had to wait until the year I 1884 when this establishment was made practicable by the gift of Miss Mary Gwendoline Caldwell now the Marquise de Meriuville who generously offered the prelates of the Third Plenary Coun cil assembled in Baltimore the sum of 300000 with which to begin this great work The council accepted the gift of this enlightened young lady and imme diately set to work for the establishment of the School ofthe Theological Sciences by the appointment of a permanent Board of Trustees composed of Bishops priests and laymen representative of the young American church This undertaking was presented for approval and sanction to the present Holy Father Pope Leo XIII still happily ruling the universal church and in a brief dated October 20 1885 Leo XIII solemnly approved and blessed the work and raised it to the dignity and endowed it with all the prerogatives of a Pontifical university Washington the national capital of the country was selected as a site for the new institution and on April 20 1887 the university was incorporated under the laws of the District of Columbia with the title of the Catholic University of AmericaIts comprise seventy acres beautifully situated in the northeastern suburbs of the city of Washington and is contiguous on its northern line with the splendid park of the National Soldiers Home The cornerstone of the first building named in honor of the founda trix of the university Caldwell Hall was laid in the presence of an immense gathering from all parts of the country prominent in which was exPresident Grover Cleveland on May 4 1888 The solemn dedication and opening of this building for students took place on No vember 13 1889 at which ceremony the Papal delegate Cardinal Satolli and representatives from allot the great uni versities of this and the old world were present Caldwell Hall immediately en tered upon its work of teaching the sacred Sciences to graduate students ordained priests directly from the seminaries of the country or young curates filling out their novitiate in the work of the priesthood on missions This faculty of theology gave courses in moral dogmatic and ascetic theology canon law patrology ecclesiastical history biblical languages and antiquities and sacred scriptures Its term of graduate work for its highest degree S T D is four years Through the munificent generos ity of the late lamented Right Rev Mgr James McMahon of New York the magnificent granite building McMahon Hall entirely devoted to secular studies was erected and opened to the students

institution is vested in the hands of a rector and a vice rector who reside on the university grounds and have the immediate care and man agement under the trustees of the studies discipline and business dealings There is a corps of over twentyfive instructors conducting in the various branches taught in the university near onehalf of whom are laymen but all ofwhom are eminent men specialists andexperts in their own work The full scope and plan of the university has not been real ized owing to the great need of endow ments without which a university can not do university work Friends of higher Catholic education in all its phases and departments should see to it that for the sake of true knowledge true science and the true religion of Christ this great educational institution should be fully endowed null fully equipped to do the full work of a university and place the Catholic church in her true position before the world as the great teacher of all truth the salt of the earth and

the crumbled ruins of churches and castles of the sixth and seventh centuries and are in a far better state of preservation proving them to be of superior structure andworkmanship Some are attached to ruins of churches or monasteries or castles but are known to antedate all those structures In style of architecture and construction they are alone nothing similar being found in the ruins or history of any other part of the world except two round towers in the plan of the monastery of St Gall in Switzerland founded by Irish monk Giraldus Cambrensis who landed In Ireland a few years after the English invasion in the twelfth century called them Ecclesiastical towers which after the fashion of the country are slender high and round The claim of Molyneaux that they were built by the Danes is disproven by the fact that no such architecture is found in Denmark nor in the parts of France England and Scotlandwhich the Danes also occupied in their conquests then the Danes were ravagers and plun derers destroying but never erecting any buildings or forts besides it has been fully established that the round towers were in Ireland before the Danes and their massive and solid construction probably accounts for their not being de stroyed by the invaders The late Dr George Petrie the most distinguished Irish antiquarian who has investigated is of the opinion that the round towers were the work of Christian architects from the sixth to the tenth century and that they were used 1 as belfries 2 as strongholds or houses into which in times of danger the people could retreat and 3 as watchtowers and beacons His work was published in 1845 In its preparation he had the aid of the best Celtic scholars of the day and it is admitted that this work contains more solid information on the antiquities of Ireland than any other ever published- Of the remains of some one hundred and twenty round towers to be seen in Ireland at the present day few of them can be said to be perfect One at Drum keen County Louth is 130 feet high that at Fertagh County Kilkenny 112 feet high Kiluiacduagh County Gal way Monasterboice County Louth and Kildare are each 110 feet high the one at Kells County Meath measures 09 feet Cloyne County Cork is 92 feet Devenish County Fermanagh 76 feet Teghadow County Kildare 71 feet Kenneth County Cork 70 feet Cashel County Tipperary 55 feet Kilcullen County Kildare 40 feet The lowest is at Oughterard County Kildare measur ing only 25 feet in height The one at Swords County Dublin is 95 feet high with a circumference of 55 feet the walls being 4 feet 8 inches in thickness It stands close by the site of an ancient monastery founded by St Columba in 512 and with which the round tower was supposed to be coeval It was to this monastery that the body of Brian Boru was brought after the battle of Clpntarf The most perfect of the round towers is at Antrim It stands 80 feet high and is built on a solid rock The door seven feet above the ground is toward the north It is two feet wide and five feet high There are four openings toward the top corresponding to the four cardi nab points of the compassIL ishollow as they all areto the bottom It is u built with lime cement There are two others of these towers in Antrim County one on Rams Island the largest island in Iough Neagh one and a half miles from the shore and one at Armoy Almost all the round towers are di vided into imperfect stories of different heights the floors supported by project ing stones put into the walls at building Cashel tower is divided itfto five stories Fertagh has five Kilcullen three and Kildare six The door of Cashel faces southeast those of Kilkenny add Kildare south and the others almost all east The door in the tower at Kilmacduagl is the highest from the ground 24 feet the lowest is that of Swords two feet The circumference varies from 55 feet Swords to 38 feet Teghadow FAMED IRISH SONGS ANGELS WHISPER A baby was sleeping Its mother was weeping For her husband was far on the wide raging sea And the tempest was swelling Round the fishermans dwelling And she cried Dermout darling oh come back to mel Her beads while she numberd The baby still slumberd And smiled in her face as she bended hoi knee Ohl blessd be that warning My child thy sleep adorning Por I know that the angels are whispering to thee Andwhile they are keeping Bright watch oer thy sleeping Ohl pray to them softly my baby with me And say thou wouldst rather Theyd watch oer thy father Por I know that the angels are whisper lug with thee The dawn of the morning Saw Dermont returning And the wife wept with joy her babes father to see And closely caressing Her child with a blessing Said I knew that the angels were whis pering to thee Written for the Kentucky Irish American IRISH PEOPLE t- Wit Gonlus and Patriotism Bring Them to the Front The Irish as a race are noted for their quickness of repartee their wit being of the brightest and freshest and of the kind that carries no sting It is very seldom that an Irishman has not a ready answer and it is always a mattter of ur prise when one of them is so taken aback that he can find no reply But Mr Tim Murphy the noted Irish actor tells this on himself In a crowded matinee in New York Mr Murphy was very much annoyed by the cry of a child in the audience lie was a little out of sorts that day and the sobbing grated so on him he felt com pelled to do something to end it so he advanced to the front of the stage and said A nurse is wanted immediately the mother of the offending child was on her feet instantly and started to leave the theater but at once replied to Mr Murphy in a loud voice Well no Irish need apply The retort was so unex pected that Mr Murphy was dum founded and could say nothing After that he says I try to control myself and take no notice of what happens in the body of the house In scanning the lists of the various professions among the names at the top can always be found Irishmen who suc ceed and dot only that but shed luster on the work they have taken up Just in this city look over the various trades professions and men in business and notice how many are Irish or of Irish descent It would be invidious to men tion names here for the list is too long and would fill more than a column of this paper And how devoted they are to their mother country Some writers claim that such intense love and devotion to ones native land has a tendency to make one disloyal to the land of adoption Such is not the caseLThe contrary is the fact There are no more loyal Americans than the same Irish pardon the paradox and in proportion to their love for their old country their devotion to this one may be measured A man who is ashamed of his native land is not a true and loyal son of any country He it is who would shirk all dangers but should there be- chance of a fat job or office lie would thefirst applicant relyhgi n ills boated devotion rcc MGINTY The Montana Copper King Owns Neither Mine nr Ground Moans by Which a Shrewd Irish Laborer Made For tune Utilized Water Pumped From Mines in Vicinity of Butte HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING A copper king without owning a copper mine is Michael McGinty of Butte Mont He is a millionaire yet owns not a foot of mining ground and his em ployes are fewer than twentyfive What he does not know about ores levels shifts and the like would fill a big book yet he is recognized as one of the copper magnates of the State All this because he is shrewd Years ago McGinty was a laborer em ployed in one of the big copper mines lie drew his 360 a day and was as happy as the other miners Now his income is well up in the tens of thousands and he has not the worry of fighting lawsuits as has the real mine owners of this district McGintys fortune came from battered tin cans scrap iron basins and native shrewdness In Butte no one may find a tin can lying around nor will a long search reveal a piece of iron larger than a nail that is going to waste These things are valuable in Butte and it was the brains of McGinty that made them so There was a time when the streets of the greatest mining camp on earth were littered with tin cans because all of the food that is consumed in the city iis of necessity taken in on trains and most of it in tins Now all is changed and the change has brought fame and fortune to McGinty In the early days of Butte the owners of the various mines were greatly troubled by the water that con tinually welled up in the various shafts To keep it pumped out was an expensive matter and for a time more than one of the mines was abandoned One night when the whistles sounded Michael had just dropped the head of his pick into the small stream of water that ran through the mine in an endeavor to remove an obstruction that threatened to dam the little brook of hot water He left it there like the laborers in the comic pictures who will not finish a blow with the sledge when time is up The next morning when he went on shift again he was astonished to find the iron heal covered with a thin coating of pure copper For a time the workman was lost in thought Then he walked up to the shift boss said he was going to quit stalkedaway from the mine and called on a banker of the town Next lay he announced that he was going to put in a bid for pumping the water out of the mines His bid was so low that the mine officials laughed at their forme- employe who they figured would los many thousands of dollars a year i undertaking to keep the mines free o water Michael said nothing but began putting in machinery to remove the water Next he built on the hillside midway between the mines and the cil proper a series cf large vats or tanks which he filled with old tin cans andI pieces of iron of all kinds To all ques tions he made but one reply I knowr what I am doing Ills next move was to direct the water from the mines into these vats where iit trickled over the tin and the iron as iit rolled on down the hill toward the flats below Every month or six weeks the course of the little stream is directed into a second set of vats while the old ones are cleaned ontoIt is in this cleaning that McGinty madeand still makes his money The water from the mines carries a large amount of copper com poundju solution and as the fluid passes over the tin and the iron copper liberated by chemical decomposition is precipi tated on the metals which are in turnI eaten away Then the copper sinks to the bottom of the vats in a dirty red sediment where it remains until the monthly cleanup takes place McGinty has been made independently rich and1I has nothing to do but buy old tin cans and scrap iron to make himself richer The water will always run from the mines now that the proper machinery

day that is dear to every Irish heart It is not necessary to mention whys for everyone knows the reason even to the little Titoddlers St Patricks day And truly o I that day the good saint must re joice If the spirits above us ar conscious of what is happening on this planet the patron saint of Ire land must glory in the fact that wherever Irelands sons are scat tered all are on that day drawn to ether by a mutual feeling to honor him who first spread the Gospel in I the little isle- Legend after legend has been told and repeated of both the land and her first Bishop but none iis more popular than the one wherei- saintthe is supposed to have ridl the land of snakes Be that as iit may the fact istrue even to thi dayWhile St Patrick was really no the first to preach the gospel iinI Ireland he was the first to bring rytheWord of God to the whole peo 1 pIe and unite them in the tru- r faith Though others had pre ceded him when Pope Celestine consecrated him Archbishop of Ire land the word was very littl known but when in 432 the Apostle of Ireland landed with his twenty assistants and proceeded to work among this people very few knew of the true God but the ardor and tine zeal exhibited by this man and the unsparing devo tion heshqmdtobiswork so aroused the inhabitants that his fame soon spread and when h died in 496 at the age of 120 years he had the satisfaction of tiwork well done and the consciousness r that henceforth the Irish ra would be devoted to their religion During his episcopacy he had established 865 churches consecrated l nearly as many bishops and ordained r over 3000 priests 4 Judging by the persons met on March 17 one would be inclined to think that the Irish and they alone had emigrated to thes shores for nine out of every ten are decorated in some manner with a bit of green displayed conspic uously But looking at the fac above the green one will discover all types and nationalities for all join in paying honor to saint on this day Then all trail to St Patrick the Apostle of Ireland May his nam be revered and his memory lion ored all over the world wherever there is a descendant of that beauti ful but unhappy country THE DUMB TIMES The Times is still as dumb as the Spynx regarding its wanton insult to the Catholics in its squib refer ring to the adoration of skeletons in St Martins church Notwithstanding protests public and pri vate and the open letter delivered to the Times owners on Wednes day February 19 the Times has neither retracted explained nor apologized Nor is it likely to do so as its policy is to keep quiet to offer amends would offend its anti Catholic friends and the Catholics are expected to soon forget all about it till the Times sees fit to give them another smirch as has been done before If we mistake not the Times is wrong in its time- Worn policy It has offended too often and the last was so unpro yoked and slanderous as to arouse protest which has been unheeded The old dodge of keeping still for awhile and it will blow over will = not go any longer and it should not go There Ut as limit to all F- O Q I things even Christian charity and the Times has passed the limit I Its insults will not be forgotten WORKINGMEN BUNCOED After years of appeal and effortt by the workingmen of Kentucky bitnl prohibiting child labor in mines inc stead of feeling grateful therefor we would have more respect for tire Legislature had they rejected the billl for as passed it is a nullity The bill prohibits the employ ment of children under fourteen years of age in mines factories an workshops except the children of widows and children having the consent of parents or the County Judge the latter presumably childrenn in the State not excepted by the bill who are they An attempt ttoI arscorrect that the child labor law iis itiin the workingmens eyes Until the workingmen of Ken tacky like their brethren in other aned politicians and become independent enough to vote for or against any party and candidate as their inter ne more than they get from the powers that be in this State and every intelligent workingman I knows that this aggregates only broken pledges WHAT WILL IT BE A meeting of the British Minis try has been called to consider the Irelandewhich the Lord Lieutenant of Ire land has been summoned to attend What does it mean What will b strengthceunity growth and activity of the United Irish League is the cause of apprehension it being established and spreading all over Ireland and in heretofore loyal districts evenn in Scotland and England and thise must be retarded or suppressed but how The organization its objects Itehas not encouraged nor caused vio lations of law beyond the alleged incendiary utterances of a few in jailedeand the court records attest that Ireland was iever more free from tiresenforcement ottbeIIcrimes acti would suffice but the League must unlawfuleorganization dud on what grounds The Dublin Castle authorities can not see tlieirway clear to act and the proclainling as unlawful an organization 1including so large a pro peoplel1udJundetakmgqifs suppression with a scarcity df available troops is a serious problem in the present con dition of British affairs But for the fact that Great Brit air has her hands full in South Africa no one doubts the crimes act and military force would have prevented the growth of the United League or any other organization in Ireland to its present proportions and influence by the summary imprisonment and exile of its ad herents As this has not been done and the Government has become apprehensive of the situa tion and future in Ireland the conference of the heads in London will have to decide on what to do THE BOER WAR The boast of British officials that the Boer war is practically over the armed resistance being only roving guerilla bands is dis proved by results of tine past feW weeks The Boers are not only c n T holding their own and the British gaining nothing with all their rein forcements and efforts but the latter have suffered several dis I astrous defeats The escape of I Dewet with his entire farce though surrounded by 30000 troops di I lected by Comuu nder in Chief Kitchener Delareys attack and I defeat of 1500 British troops driv ing the survivors back into Cape Colony and finally Delareys crush ing rout of 1200 British under the able Gen Methuen who was left woundedon the field to be captured does not read much like the depredations of guerrilla bands but rather the work of a disciplined well armed and ably commanded military force capable of coping with anything the British seem able to send against them Then when it is remembered that the last report of the British War Office gave the total British force in South Africa as 273000 men that the whole empire is being scoured for reinforcements 20000 being now en route that every inducement is put forward to attract recruits that the war ex uponIthe allowances for other departments of government and the pur chase of horses and supplies con tinues unabated the world over it is evident that the British Govern ment officials do not believe their own assurances that tine Boer war is practically over nor is it likely eto be any way soon That was a bad break of tine striking street car employes of Norfolk in refusing to accept the decision of arbitrators and return to work after appealing to the Board of Trade to induce the com pany to arbitrate and pledging themselves to abide the decision Two prominent business men who devoted their efforts to bringing about arbitration and represented the strikers at the conference after vainly pleading with them to accept the result abandoned them in dis gust and so will the general public However unsatisfactory the decis iQaofLthfi arbitrators it should have been accepted and its rejec tion is a violation of good faith that can not be defended as the strikers will find out too late The declara nothe ing more to do with such a labor organization and to run their cars at all hazards with nonunion em ployes is fully justified and will meet with public approval The Street Car Employes Union of Norfolk may as well disband as they have defected their own cause however just it may have been by their dishonorable act of repudiating their pledge and an arbitration of their own seeking It is such conduct that not only injures the workmen involved but casts reproach on all labor organizations though to their credit such cases are rare We are surprised to read in a prominent Catholic paper a berating of the Catholic millionaires of the country because their names do not appear in the published lift of mil lionaires making donations to religion education and charity during the past year A Catholic editor ought to know that Catholics rich as well as poor do not as a rule publish to the world their donations to religion education and charity and the absence of their names from newspaper lists is therefore no evi dence on which to condemn them as not having donated and that liberally The erection mainten ance and extension of all such Catholic institutions wholly dependent upon donations attests to the contrary even though it may not be published in the newspapers a kind of notoriety really charitable Catholics do not desire In TienTsin China there is a dispute between American and French Consuls as to jurisdiction over mission properties and the American has hoisted the American flag over the buildings The French Consul has threatened tor hoist he French flag over the American If he does somebody will get hurt AsHie matter has- been reported to their repecttve u- n lJ- J l 0- r L- ot1 f Governments it is not likely that anything wilt result more serious I than the calling down of both

coal opera tors and miners of the Pittsburg district after weeks of conference have agreed jon a scale for the en suing year end what promised at one time to be a strike of 50000 miners is happily averted To encourage enlistments the British Government is pushing a bill in Parliament to pension widows and orphans of soldiers killed in the Boer war Heretofore only officers or their families have been rewarded or provided for by the Government Tine Bishop Spalding reported in the papers as being seriously ill of heart disease and subsequently dying at Buffalo is not tine Catho lie Bishop John

Years Ago The standard of living now prevailing in the cabins of the Irish peasantry is far higher than it was fifty years ago and is more substantial and varied Potatoes are still the staple food but there are more appetizing adjuncts such as tea butter eggs wheat bread and American bacon potatoes being generally eaten at dinner Tea is drank universally at all meals only the best quality finding sale in Ireland the poor sacrificing quantity rather than use the inferior or cheap teas The art of brewing drawing tea is not generally understood and there is a waste of tea and loss of flavor as a result of the custom of slowly boiling or stewing it in a pot Tea and tobacco are the luxuries The tobacco is no longer MAYOR GRAJNGERIHe Will Preside at Mncaule the black null very strong but bright and milder flavor more thoroughly cured and cleanly such as is sold in the United States whence it comes The ancient clay pipe is likewise giving way to the brier and meerschaum and the peasants near towns smoke cigars on Sundays and festive occasions Nearly every village and road station now has its baker and bakers bread is used instead of the homemade griddle cake except in remote districts Stir about or yallow male is only eaten now by the very poor and they use it only because it is cheap and they can get nothing else as the people regard it with aversion it bearing the stigma of pauperism It first introduced during the famine of 1847 by the Government as an inexpensive food for the people and distributed as charity relief in all periods of distress since has become associ ated in the minds of the people with times of poverty and misfortune and the poorest families look upon its use as degradingThe of the peasantry is more uptodate and varied as are also the furniture in their cabins and the imple ments on the farms and truck patches This isdue chiefly to the innovatton of American goods and modes of trade manufacturers furnish stocks to dealers in cities and towns of Ireland to be sold on commission thus requiring no outlay of money by the dealer and he hires agents oh the same terms who solicit trade from the people It is not exactly the installment plan Mjthe Irirti peasantry have no regular i jr stated wages but those able to do so pay part cash and are given time for the balance This has established a trade and general growing demand for American goods in Ireland as well as enabled the people to purchase and use them which they can not do under the English system of trade the oldtime way of commercial transactions cash and notes with security to which the English manufacturers and merchants still adhere In the matter of labor there is a like improvement The hours in summer are from G in the to C in the even ing with an hour off for breakfast and dinner at other seasons from daylight till dark The rate of pay is better and more generally paid in money In the larger and wealthier districts the hours and employment are most regular the rate of pay the highest and more com fortable cabins and larger truck patches allowed as farm help is more in demand FAITH AND CHARITY Lecture at St Louis BerirattdH to Honor St Patrick and Aid the Poor

will certainly be a rare treat which all should take advantage of It is given for the benefit of the St Louis Bcrtrand conference of the SL Vincent de Paul Society and a collection will be taken up to help that body in its noble work of charity It would certainly seem that the conference desires to give every one the full value of their money for in addition to securing one of the ablest lecturers to be had they have arranged for a short musical programme consisting of some of the finest melodies of the Irish bard Thomas Moore by the choir The services will commence promptly at 730 and those desiring seats would do well to be at the church promptly BASE BALL SUIT 0Manager George Tebeau scored his first victory last Saturday Judge Mil ler refused the injunction to prevent th location of a

only supported by two or three really influential English mens such as John Morley Sir William Harcourt and Earl Spencer Meanwhile t recent events have tended to restore the old friendly relations between the Irish Nationalists and the English Radicals But there will be no formal alliance as there was in Parnells time The policy of the Irishmen is to keep aloof from both English parties and

the missionary work there by Redmond and his companions With especial mis givings members of the Cabinet have learned of the cordial exchange of courtesies between the Irish Nationalist leaders in the United States and Prince Henry The influence of such a spectacle when the Kaisers personal representative has become so popular is dreaded Anticipation of trouble on account of Ireland and Irelands friends have become the chief inspiration of new plans whereby the Boer war may be brought to a speedy conclusion Whether or not these plans which seem as yet extremely vague will amount to anything the government realizes the necessity of bestiring itself Prominent Boer emissaries across the channel are shrewd enough to make the most of the Irish menace In every way possible they are giving

from eight to twenty years old The charming thing about the household was the deference the boys showed their mother When she entered a room they stepped aside to let her pass in first In the table conversa tion she was never interrupted when she was talking and what she said was treated with respect The visitor could see that she held a unique place In the household She was mistress and her boys gave her deference that they would have conceded to a queen There was no lack of genial temper and bright sally and rejoinder It was evidently a happy household but the note of affection and honor for the mother was unmistakable The explana tion was not difficult to discover for it needed only slight observation to detect that the attitude of the sons toward their mother was only the reflection of the attitude of their father toward his wife precedenceInforced by her husbands unfailing court esy toward her One could not but think how much parents can do if they are wise to prevent

w M A QUESTION OP HAMS Editor Kentucky Irish American I remember reading in a country paper some time ago of a rivalry between tw Kentucky farmers of repute in their neighborhood as to which cured the finest hog meat and the relative merit- of their process of curing one of them smoking his meat with hickory and the other with oak wood The curing off hams may still be a fine art in this State perfection wahl To those who claim superiority for Kentucky hams and bacon by their peculiar methods of feeding or curin the hog it may be interesting to learn that Ireland takes the blue ribbon even from Virginia the mother of Kentucky The costliest of all the smoked meats according to a Chicago paper are the fine hams and bacon that come from Limerick Ireland The prices of theses meats may vary slightly from time to time the hams selling usually however at from 33 to 35 cents a pound These costly smoked meats are from fine scrupupThe result is shown in meat of such quality and flavor as to commend them most highly Of course there are fine hams produced in this country also notably those iin Virginia the finest of which bring 21 cents a pound If you were to add the tariffi to the price of the Virginia hams you would raise the cost of them to 29 cents and adding further the cost of transpor- r tation front Europe would bring Ute Virginia hams pretty close to those of Limerick in price so that in their original cost they are about the same As to which is the better ham that wouldI be largely a matter of taste The IrishI ham is rich and juicy the Virginia is of- a more delicate flavor Yours for JUlcvisThere was once a club formed of lazy men hides were inflicted on those who ever forgot themselves so far as to doI r anything in haste On day lJCyeralm nl hers saw an old

attendedfSt Patricks parochial school St Xaviers Institute and finally the Male toeHenderson Ky and took up the study of law in the office of Attorney James F togthe bar In 1877 he returned to Louisville and began to practice law in his native city and here he has remained ever since In 1881 he formed a law partnership with Mace Lieber They are still part tiers In fact it is the oldest continuous law partnership in the city Mr Lincoln has built up a splendid practice and has at various times been called upon to act as special judge a position that he always filled with credit to himself More than that he has been compli mented by the attorneys he decided against upon lids perspicacity and knowl edge oflaw It is the lawyers who are now urging him to allow tits name to be submitted to the Governor They have several reasons he has always been a Democrat he I was born in Jefferson county something that none of the present Circuit Judges can boast of he isau IrishAmericanI and a Catholic I These gentlemen believe that citizens- r of Jefferson county are entitled to a native born judge they believe that the IrishAmericans are entitled to a judge they believe that the Catholics constitut ring about onethird of the voting strength of the judicial district are entitled to at least a representation of onesixth on the bench Politically Walter Lincoln is a clean man He has never mixed up in politi car fights lIe has been urged several times to make i race for judicial honors but always stepped aside If Governor Beckbam appoints him to one of the two new judgeships he will give Louisville a capable judicial Officer and will receive the thanks of the Irish Americans of Kentucky Mr Lincolns heirs is on Garvin Place between St Catherine and Oak

Parade Ball and Banquet Oratory and Music and Song I Patriotic Men Who Honored God and CountryThe Wearing of the Green Was in StyleShamrocks and Souvenirs From Erins Daughters Twentyfive years ago St Patricks day was more eagerly anticipated joyously welcomed and generally observed in Louisville than now For months pre ceding committees were appointed meet ings held and preparations made for the various celebrations About thirty Irish and kindred organizations priests and laity entered heartily into the arrange ments for honoring Irelands patron saintThe grandest of the religious cele brations was in St Patricks church where the Right Rev Bishop pontificated at solemn high mass assisted by numer ous priests the pastor usually inviting all those of the city The choir rendered their choicest music and a panegyric of St Patrick was delivered a memorable one being by the Very Rev Thomas N Burke O P then on a lecture tour of this country The church was densely crowded with people from all parts of the city Rev M D Lawler the pastor always urged his parishioners to observe their patrons feast by receiving holy communion and arranged that only the women and girls do so at early mass on St Patricks day and the men and boys on the following Sunday Nearly 1000 received holy communion in this church on those occasions The Sunday following St Patricks day was thus a grand one at St Patricks church as the male societies made it a public demonstration The L N known as the Limerick band because the members though employed in the L Si N shops lived in Limerick was engaged and by C oclock Sunday morn ing men and boys were flocking to SU Patricks school hall the three floors of which presented animated scenes of preparation As the first bell rang for mass the order was given to fall in the band in the street struck up St Pat ricks Day in the Morning the Boys Sodality St Aloysius Cadets Young Mens Sodality St Vincent de Pauls and St Patricks Total Abstinence So cieties all in full regalia and with ban ners flying marched out down Main street to Seventeenth where St Patricks Benevolent Society opened ranks at their hall the procession passing through the Benevolent Society closing in at the rear out to Market up to the church the societies opening ranks to Fifteenth street and the Benevolent Society march ing through and into the church The societies filled the middle aisle and part of the side aisles and in their varied regalias presented a beautifulsight Father Lawler celebrated the mass and at the gospel approached the altar rail his face beaming with the joy he felt aud in faltering voice welcomed the societies and commended them for their edifying example in honoring Irelands patron saint All the societies approached communion in reverent order After mass St Patricks Benevolent Society passing through the open ranks of the other societies was escorted to its hall by the band The organizations of the city annually elected a grand Marshal who with his aides conducted all public parades About the first of the year the Grand Marshal notified the organizations to appoint delegates to the annual convention to be held early in February to elect a Grand Marshal and arrange for St Patricks day parade The largest and most notable of these conventions was held in St Nicholas Hall Sixth and Court Place presided over by Dr W B Doherty Grand Mar shal elected a year previous by the young element led by the Sarsfield Rifles a military company of fine irish men whose manly bearing and thorough drill commended them as the leading military company of the State The young men were hustlers and usually carried their point The canvass for Grand Marshal had been active the total abstinence societies then strong joining with the Sarsfield Rifles and the benevolent societies claiming the honor for the year The outcome of the con vention was anxiously awaited When the convention met an effort to exclude delegates from the junior total abstinence societies cadets being defeated most of the delegates of the benevolent societies withdrew and elected Matthew Curran as Grand Marshal The remaining dele gates representing eighteen organiza tions elected Michael Hargadon as Grand Marshal Excitement ran high in Irish circles over the split and the prospect of rival parades on St Patricks day But the question must be settled by the societies and before any of the benevolent societies met there was time for cool consideration and discussion among leaders Then St Michaels Be nevolent Society the largest in the city met and after a stormy meeting decided to sustain its one delegate who refused to bolt and voted to recognize Hargadon as Grand Marshal Then the olive branch was extended concessions made and honors divided the Sarsfield Rifles next to the lergy being foremost in restoring harmony and unity Mr Cnrran was appointed lChief Aide to the Grand Mar shal the benevolent societies were assigned to lead the parade as the first division after the Sarsfield Rifles the total abstinence societies to form the second division The Ancient Order of Hibernians of Covingtou were the guests o J tC n of the day and were given the position of honor the right of the line It was a bright day and the largest and most gor geous parade ever witnessed here on St Patricks day was the outcome of what threatened to be dissension and disrup tion The parade was over an hour in passing All the Louisville bands and several from elsewhere furnised the music Irish and American colors flags and banners and the bright regalia and uniforms of the marchers made a beauti ful spectacle A platoon of mounted police each wearing a green rosette led the Grand Marshal and his aides with bright sashes and plumes next the Sars field Rifles in regulation military uni form of dark blue trimmed in green commanded by Capt Donovan and car rying the American and Irish flags the Covington A O H rich green collars the United Sons of Erin

collars white gloves parade hats with long white plumes Officers of societies were mounted the horses being decorated in Irish and American colors na were the carriages containing the pastors and other clergy officials of county and State organiza tions city and county civil officials that followed the various societies The streets were thronged the daugh ters of Erin wearing their best display ing a bit of green with happy hearts and smiling faces waved their welcome to the marchers The wearing of the green was fashionable then not only by the Irish but by people generally who hon ored the day out of respect to their Irish friends The shamrock now so rarely seen was conspicuous as it or a plant resembling it grew in the Beargrass and canal bottoms and in marshy places in the western and southern suburbs Peo ple of Limerick St Bridgets St Pat ricks and Sacred Heart parishes hunted this little plant vieing with each other to find the largest and finest for their pastor The writer had the pleasure to find and present one to Rev Father Lawler which after being beautifully en twined in red white and blue by Miss Annie Heunessy was worn by him in the parade Many were the emblems wornthe green bowknot i rosette of red white and blue with a green shamrock bow or small rosette in center bow knot of red white and blue and green intertwined harps and sunbursts of gold or silver on green These were usually the work of Irish girls who designed the most novel and prettiest to present their friends as souvenirs and were proudly worn by the recipients But the parade was only one feature The Knights of St Patrick the promi nent Irishmen of the city always gave a banquet on St Patricks night at which Ireland was honored in toast recitation poetry music song andstory And then the ball for the young and middle aged on St Patricks night By common consent St Patricks Benevo lent Society gave this ball but about this time the Sarsfield Rifles desiring new uniforms concluded the town was big enough for two balls on St Patricks night and in December before St Pat ricks Society had appointed a commit tee the Sarsfields secured the only large dance hall Wedekinds now Rhodes Burford for St Patricks night Of course the older members of St Patricks were hot and at the following meeting their hall was crowded But the Sars fields a number of whom were also members of St Patricks again showed their diplomacy by sending a committee to explain and make a proposition It was only after a lively debate that this committee was admitted to the meeting but when they were they soon smoothed the ruffled tempers of their elders They disclaimed all purpose to interfere with SU Patricks ball urged them to appoint their committee and go ahead promised to aid in securing a hall and making arrangements and by working together make both balls a success This was adopted St Patricks secured and fixed up the Exposition building Fourthand Chestnut where the Custom House now stands The two committees cooperated ina general way with the result that both halls were jammed on St Patricks night the crowd and even the managers going from one to the other The balls were I a the most thoroughly enjoyed and successful ever held in this city St Patricks netting over 1500 and the Sarsfields nearly as much And this recalls to mind the bands that furnished the music Scales blind of an eye to whose lively music young and old delighted to step who was ever ready to give a jig break down or Irish reel and Ole Cole as he I was known the jolly fat and very black darkey who played cotillions and Vir ginia reels sing songing the figures with out a miss sleeping soundly all the while It was always Scales or Ole Cole at Irish dances and picnics in those daysAnd what of the men of those days who prompted and gave life to this na tional spirit originated and managed those grand demonstrations Among the clergy were the Rev Fathers Meagher and Rooney O Pi Rev M

lusurtnco Order That has Stood the Test of Experience Started In Nashville Nurtured- in Louisville Spread Over the Country Has Promptly and Fully Paid Six Thousand Death Claims ITS SILVER JUBILEE NEXT APRIL The Catholic Knights of America will celebrate the twentyfifth anniversary of the founding of their order in April This order has well filled a longfelt want among the Catholic people of this coun try Previous to its organization Catholic beneficial societies paid only sick and funeral benefits with a small sum to the family of deceased members To obtain life insurance and provide for his family after his death the Catholic had to insure with regular life insurance companies which few could afford or join a non Catholic organization Local mutual aid societies were started but the membership was small the cost heavy the amounts paid at death insufficient for more than temporary support of the family and the societies finally failed The matter was frequently discussed at meetings and conventions of Catholic benevolent and temperance organizations but nothing practical resulted Mr J J ORourke and several Catholic gentlemen of Nashville Tenn planned a new organization for life insurance of Catholics national in its scope with local branches It was a gigantic undertaking especially as it was to originate in a sec lion having but a small Catholic popula tion but having submitted it to Bishop Feehan now Archbishop of Chicago and obtained his approval a meeting was held and Branch 1 was formed with nine members in April 1877 The growth was slow and after two years there were only three branches with about 200 members As a result of persistent effort to introduce the order and sending out of circulars over the country Louisville Catholics became interested A meeting was held at the Cathedral at which addresses were made and the objects of the order explained by Mr ORourke and others from Branch 1 and Branch 4 was formed with W C Smith as Presi dent and Gran W Smith Sam McGill Edward McDonogh Thomas Feely and others as members and Branch 5 Ger man at St Boniface by George D Deuser and Edward Niehaus The work had fallen into good hands for it was urged earnestly These gentlemen visited the Catholic pastors arranged meetings at the various churches in the city and formed branches at nearly all of them The first Supreme Council was held in St Tjoniface Hall in this city and the organization completed W C Smith being elected Supreme President This united all the branches gave strength and life to the order and inspired the Catholic public with confidence The order spread to other sections of Kentucky and then to other States the growth being gradual and permanent until it has branches in nearly every State During its career the order has encountered difficulties and obstacles but all were overcome and in its twenty five years notwithstanding panics epi demics and disasters like the Galveston flood it has always paid promptly and fully every claim over 0000 deaths aggregating several million dollars and at the same time steadily added to its reserve fund which now amounts to nearly 000000 The order has endeavored to keep abreast of the times and has amended its laws to do so It now insures at full rate of 2000 half rate of 1000 and quarter rule of 500 the assessments being based on age at admission and women are now admitted The Supreme officers with headquarters in SL Louis manage all generall business receive from the branches and pay out the insur ance which is collected from the mem bers by the branches The Supreme officers are elected by the Supreme Council composed of delogates from branches or State Councils und the expenses and salaries are paid by a yearly per capita assessment of fifty cents to 1 on members The branch expenses are paid in monthly dues Theprder is now in a prosperous con dition as shown by Supreme Secretary Carrolls annual report of January 1 1902 The membership is 23772 again of 646 for the year The financial report makes even a better showing Total receipts 82553657 expenditures in eluding 72330928 death claims and 176958 to relief of Galveston flood sufferers were 76302243 Balance for the year 6251414 which added to the balance of January 1 1891 of 517 07835 and 2266006 due for accrued interest etc make a grand total in cluding reserve invested In bonds and real estate of 60225255 or about 26 to each member With such a showing of the standing of the order the members can really celebrate its silver jubilee with joy proudly review its great work and com niend it to their fellowCatholics OALWAY CLUB DINNER The Louisville Galway Club a social organization of our best known citizens will have its annual St Patricks day dinner on Monday evening Elaborate

and tears With hopes sweet sunshine glinting through A wintry waste of weary years Freshed by a nations dearest dew The Irish heart is glad Ah not Tis bitter maddening vengeful mirth Tis grief disguised tis tinseled woe Tis sorest sadness smilebegirt Ah how can joys delighting thrills Reach hearts that sigh far far away From Irelands green and grand old hills On Irelands ownSt Patricks day And tis not grief for never yet Did hopeless sorrow grim despair On Erins soul their impress set Nor ever found a harbor there Through darkest years of tyrant thrall Her deathless spirit still was gay Though oft twas crushed though black each fall It soared anew each Patricks day But hers that mingled mirth and gloom Like Aprils genial sun and showers When mellow beams in beauty plume Each cloud that in the azure lowers The future fraught with glory gleams Oer ages wrongs like the mornings- ray Through nights dark arch in brighten ing streams And lumes our souls this Patricks day Mo Graul with loving longing gaze We turn our eyes afar to thee And hail thee through the distant haze Our crownless Queen throned on the sea Yet though no scepter decks that brow Nor hireling legions homage pay No land on earth dare claim elen now The soulallegiance thine today In the remotest seawashed isle Below the scathing Southern glow Or where the glaciers glittering pile Looms up mid Northern wastes of snow Broad scattered oer the earths wide face Though far apart their footsteps stray In thought in soul the exiled race Are home midst Erins hills today You say our hopes so cherished prove But vain and visionary dreams That all this vaunted deathless love Will ever waste in silly schemes No we are pledged to ends of earth Before high heaven let come what may To hail a ransomed nations

Protectod and Assisted at Now York The total number of immigrants landed at New York during the past year was 393616 of whom 19953 were Irish nearly all young people Of these 11510 were females Immigrant girls from Ireland maybe divided into three classes The first class is those who have a defi nite destination generally to join rela tives or friends who have preceded them and have only to transfer from immi grant ship to rail or steamboat and pro ceed on their way The second class is those whose destination is New York and who expect friends or relatives to meet them at the dock The third class is those with no definite destination have no friends or relatives and are therefore without protection or guidance in a strange land It is not necessary to detail the dangers to which those immigrant girls are ex posed from the swindlers and other criminals who infest all seaports and prey upon the innocent and unwary Despite the vigilance of the Government immigration officials not a few have fallen victims to the scheming of rascals To protect advise assist and furnish a safe tempoiary lodging to immigrant girls until they can find relatives or be sent on their way to their destination there is in New York the Mission of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary It is in charge of a priest designated by the Archbishop of New York and conducted by Catholic Sisters Its duly accredited agents visit all immigrant ships on arrival go among the immigrant girls aboard and give advice directions or assistance as is needed to enable them to safely reach their destination or take them to the mission to remain till they can arrange to find and go to their friends or obtain employment All this is done without charge to the girls the mission being absolutely free and all immigrant girls welcomeDuring the past year 2120 girls were received and cared for at the mission be sides those who were otherwise assisted Many remained for only one night while others were guests for days or weeks Employment was found for over 500 during the year and eveq in this every precaution is taken to protect the girls from unjust and immoral employers Unless the parties desiring to employ the girls are known to those in charge of the mission they mutt be recommended by a Catholic pastor anddedmen and women who give their time to visiting the docks furnishing informs lion of relatives andJrlends and securing homes and employment for the girls The most liberal contributors to this grand work are the Irish people ju this country ADDRESSi To Officers and Members o Catholic Socletlcsof Louisville Practical Movement Looking to Formation of County- Federation The Need of Such an Organiza Lion Has Long I3een- Recognized TO MEET AT THE LOUISVILLE HOTEL The address that follows is self expla atory en To the officers nod members of Catholic Societies of T ouisvllle Gentle men At a meeting of the Catholic Union of Louisville Ky held January 28 1902 the undersigned were appointed a committee to formulate plans for tlm purpose of organizing in this city an county a County Federation of Catltoli- Societies to be affiliated with the American Federation of Catholic which was organized at Cincinnati D cember 10 1901 At the Cincinnati meeting most of the Catholic societies of the United States were represented by delegates and great enthusiasm was shown in the organization of the Federation A constitution was adopted officers were elected for the ensuing year and the Federation was placed upon a firm and enduring basis It now remai for nil the Catholic societies of lh United States to unite with the Natioan- Federation 1 in carrying out the grand objects of the organization The objects of the Federation are the cementing of the bonds of fraternal union among the Catholic laity and the Catholic societies of the United States the fostering and protecting of Catholic interests andI works of religion piety education and charity the study of conditions in our social life the dissemination of the truth and the encouragement of the spread o Catholic literature and of the circulation of the Catholic press The plan adopted is for each State iin the Union to form a State Federation to be composed of at least one delegate from each County Federation The State Federation shall have a President A Vice President a Secretary a Spiritualit Director and an Executive Board Such State Federation shall meet at such time and place as it may determine and shall1 have general supervision over all matters concerning the Federation in the State It shall have the power to levy a tax on its component organizations which shallt constitute an emergency fund out of which the expenses incurred in the interest of the Federation shall be paid The County Federation will be composed of two or more delegates front each Catholic society in the county Tb officers of the County Federation shall be a President a Vice President a Secre tary a Treasurer n Spiritual Director and a Marshal all of whom shall con stitute the Executive Board Each county shall be entitled to one delegate for each one thousand members or fraction thereof over five hundred TheSe delegates to the State Federation are to be elected by the County Federation but each county in the State shall be entitled to at least one delegate The need of such a federation among Catholic laymen has long been recog nized The federation is not a church organization but belongs to the laity and its progress will be measured by the interest which the laymen manifest in it Much interest and determined effort will accomplish great results Lack of inter est and no work will avail us nothing in the furtherance of the grand objects of the organization We can not hope to accomplish anything in the organization of a County Federation except by continued effort on the part of those Interested If the Catholic societies of Louis ville will heartily cooperate with this committee there can be established in time county Of Jefferson a strong County Federation The Catholic laymen when organized in this manner can more effectually protest against injustice andI discriminationWhile an organization of the laity the federation has been indorsed lI by the most prominent members of the clergy who readily recognized the great good that can be accomplished by suchn an organization with such noble pur poses Our Holy Father Pope Leo XIII through Cardinal Rarnpolla granted the Apostolic benediction to the American Federation of Catholic Socie ties Others who have indorsed the Federation are Archbishop Elder Bishop Hbrstman Bishop Messmer Bishop Maes Bishop Me Faill Bishop Moeller and Cardinal Gibbons The committee desiring to organize the county organization as soon as poss ble and feeling that a thorough discussion of the matter with the represents tives of the various Catholic societies will be productive of much good and a better uunderstanding ofthe alum and purposes of the federation hav called meeting for March 20 1902 t at 730 p in at the Louisville Hotel The committee requests that tile President ofeach Catholic society in Louisville and Jefferson county attend this meeting and by

Past and Keep Green in Our Hearts the Love for Old Ireland and Her Saintly Apostle March 17th is a day that is dear to the Irish race Its annual observance forms a chain of golden memories that connects us with the past and keeps green in our hearts the love for old Ireland and her saintly apostles day that never diesI On this day wherever the children off St Patrick are scattered from Maine to California from Michigan to Florida iin the North in the South in the East and in the far West in Australia along the banks of the Ganges in the country of the Ilindoos and in South Africa where the brave and gallant Boers are fighting for freedom everywhere the same Ire- lands patron saint will be glorified an Irelands historic flag will flutter in the breeze Many an Irish sailor will climb the topmast of his ship heaviug to harbor to catch a glimpse of the marching multitudes with flying flags and banners in honor of St Patrick while in rapturous glee he listens to the soul stirrin g music and familiar airsSt Patricks Day ODonnell Aboo Garry Owen and The Girl I I eft Behind Me It played by the various bands in the line of marchOn this day the Irish exiles yearning for the freedom of his native land from the galling yoke of oppression is especi ally intensified and his thoughts revert to the days when he roamed over the sweet vales of Erin her lteath cover el mountains wild passes and historic glens He remembers the sad departure from home and friends most dear=to better his condition and obtain those rights and freedom in foreign lands which were denied him in Ireland by abase and brutal English Governmentt that broke all her pledges violated1 treaties forced famines practiced all the hellish means and machinations to su due and exterminate the Irish racei because of their love of country am I true faith the faith of St Patrick This is one day in the year that the Irish people and their descendants claim as their own to glorify Erins saintly apostle whose labors in Ireland exteade- over I a period of sixty years and in tha t time be founded over seven hundredI churches ordained 365 Bishops and 3 priests besides the millions he ha 1 brought into the fold of the true faith According to most writers St Patrick was 120 years old at the time of his death and he bad nearly attained the great age of one hundred when he retired from the active labors of his apostleship He diedI on March 17 493 and was buried iini Saul County of Down It is the anni versary of his death we celebrate because on that day his faithful church teaches he was born into A new lifea life of eternal glory No missioner ever existed who was so amply rewarded for his labors as St Patrick and hence he loved the Irish with an intensity that no language can express The burning spirit of patriot ism which glowed in the heart of St Patrick was poured out in a metrical i form or poem which is preserved in the Leabar na gCearth of which the following is a feeble translation from the original Irish Be Erin blessed at evening hours When sunset gilds her fragrant bowers When whirlwinds howl my blessings be My generous Erin still with thee To tbee be every blessing given From favoring skies by bounteous heaven Be blessings on thy bashful maids Be blessings on thy battle blades Blest be the fisher tribes that roam Thy blackening surge and whiteningt foam OhlI blessed be thy stormy night And blessings on thy mornings bright Be blessings on thy castle towers De blessings on thy village bowers My blessings on thy waving corn And every babe in Erin born Dlest be thy thunders angry roar And every wave that laps thy shore And blessed be the smiles serene Of sunshine on thy forests green Where meadows spread where hillocks rise- Where lordly mountains kiss the skies On every hamlet vale and rill My blessing be with Erin still Oh I blessed be the rain and dew Andevery breeze that visits you And blessed be thy warriors tall Thy chieftains doon thy abbots hall My blessings on thy matrons fair Thy mineral treasures rich and rare The flocks that Meet the herds that low The streams that warble as they flow On every cottage hall and hill My blessings be with Erin still The language in the original of the foregoing is very ancient and is spoken by the Irish people to this daythe lan guage in which the saint converted the people Their religion to the fourth century was pagan and on April 4 433 St Patrick baptized his first Irish con verts and to the credit and glory of Ireland history proves that the Irish re ceived Christianity without the shedding of one drop of blood Immediately after their conversion Christian schools academies and other establishments of learning sprang up throughout the country and from the middle of the sixth century jlown to the ninth the in tellectual leadership of Europe devolved r r rr j upon the ever faithful Emerald Isle From the most distant parts of Euro I kings and their subjects came to study i the Irish schools
