Anniversary Fifteen Hundred Men Partici pate in the Sliver Jubl lee Parade Solemn Exorcises at St Johns and Sermon by Father- L D Bax THE SPLENDID MUSICAL PROGRAMME Last Sunday was a day that will be long remembered by the Catholic Knights of Louisville New Albany and Jefferson ville The warm and cheerful rays of the sun never smiled upon brighter fes tivities than those held in celebration of the twentyfifth anniversary of that great fraternal society The afternoon was cloudless and so were the features that marked this silver jubilee both the o parade and the solemnities within the walls of St Johns churchnot a cloud of disappointment not a shadow of dis order but everything seeming to breathe the spirit of warmth and joyousness that existed in the hearts of the 1600 who marched in the imposing parade The interest manifested in the work of the Central Committee for severalweeks past had a telling effect and was the real cause of the large turnout of mem bers Shortly after the dinner hour branches began arriving at St Marys on Eighth street and were assigned their respective places by Grand Marshal Sheehan New Albany and Jefferson ville were well represented and added large numbers Long before the hour for starting throngs had gathered along t the streets through which the procession was to pass When the City Hall bell struck the hour of 2 Marshal Sheehan and aides gave the order and the imposing procession of 1500 noble looking men preceded by a platoon of mounted police and a band of music moved with martial step as one man Next came State President Mike Reichert State Treasurer Rapier Presi dent Veeneman Secretary ScoreSupreme Delegate Joe McGinn Supreme Trustee Smith Treasurer Edmund Rapp Trustees Edward G Hill Joseph Hubbuch Jona than Thickston Al Martin and the memo bers of the Central Committee Then followed the seventeen branches in their numerical order which with the route appeared last week Imposing indeed was the sight especially when passing the churches along the line of march the stars and stripes flying and all marching with uncovered heads Everywhere were heard expressions of wonder and admiration for those who had so quietly and successfully arranged the grand demonstration which was a pleasing surprise to Catholics as well as nonCatholics Past St Marys the Cathedral St Michaels St Boniface St Martins and then to St Johns the men marched with steady step Arriving at St Johns promptly at 3 oclock the solemn but brilliant services began with soft and inspiring strains from the grand organ presided over by Miss Veeneman the talented organist When the sweet notes ceased every seat and available foot of space was taken The decorations of the sanctuary were elaborate and abounded with palms lilies and flowers while the altars were brilliant amid a blaze of col ored lights Solemn vespers were intoned by Rev Paul Alf of St Boniface church andwithin the sanctuary were a number of priests among them Fathers Welch Westermann Ohle and Bax The choral service under the direction of Miss Veeneman was admirable over forty voices contributing to the splendid har monies Solos were artistically rendered by Miss Alcxina Schaulie and Mrs E J Mann and J J Mueller and Mike Hill who filled the house of God with their grand melody And when their sweet strains had ceased the high notes of the Ave Maria rendered by the Concordia Singing Society floated out over the heads of the vast congregation the air within trembling with their delicious music as never before at St Johns The sermon was preached by Very Rev Father Bax State Spiritual Director and the oldest member of the Catholic Knights in the United States It was a masterpiece of eloquence and oratory and the vast audience listened with awe and rapt attention He congratulated the Catholic Knights upon their wonder ful success dwelling at some length upon the history of the order during Its twenty five years of existence During his advice to the members as Americans and Catho lics he held his hearers spellbound His suggestions were patriotic and would be beneficial to any society and his tribute to American citizenship knighthood and Catholicity made a deep impression upon all who heard him Father Bax urged an fathers who would provide for their wives and children and all young men who would protect their parents to at once become members of the Catholic Knights of America Fie concluded perhaps tfae most powerful sermon ever preached by btw by telling of his joy at- eelsg BO many approach the sacrament ia honor of their jnttlee and yrisliedall branches would do so frequently in a ittand thus deserve a ooutlauaace of o 0 1 the blessings with which God had show ered them Upon the conclusion of his remarks solemn benediction was given by Father Alf and the impressive services were closed with the Te Deum by the vast assemblage Nowhere was the silver jubilee more gloriously celebrated than in Louisville and the Central Committee have every reason to be proud of their labors But everybody knows that what ever they undertake will be a success and this certainly was JEFFERSONVILLE St Augustines Church Bazar Will Have Exciting Contest The ladies of St Augustines church in Jeffersonville will hold a bazar in Speiths Theater beginning Tuesday evening April 29 and continuing five nights The proceeds will be used to aid Rev Father OConnell in completing the many improvements undertaken by him and reducing the church debt An exciting feature of the bazar will be the voting contest for a handsome chair between the supporters of Walter B Hassan the present popular and efficient Democratic City Clerk and his Republican opponent Capt J E Ryan The race will be a hot one and the friends of each wilt make an earnest effort to win A number of other pleasing features will be provided for the entertainment of the public which is becoming more inter ested In this than any former bazar The Hibernians of Jeffersonville will also do much for its success Rumor has it that Barney Coll the best County Treasurer Clark county ever had has in contemplation the erection of a handsome residence on East Chestnut street His legion of friends hope the report is true as they believe there is nothing too fine for him KNIGHTS AND LADIES St Pauls Branch Has Now Reached the Front Rank Among the numerous fraternal and social

JLai FOUR THOUSAND Children Attend Mass at the Church of the Holy Family at Chicago Edifying and Solemn Sight That Reveals Devotion to the Church Mostly Irish Whose Parents Were Oppressed by Brit ish Law WILLIAM REDMOND TAKES NOTES Hon William Redmond MP in his tour of the country in the interest of the United Irish League is taking notes of conditions and events While in Chi cago he attended the childrens mass at the Church of the Holy Family and thus describes the impressive sight in the ChicagoAmerican There are indeed many sights so called to claim the attention of the visitor to this great city but of all the sights which I have in many visits seen in Chicago nothing impressed me more than the scene which I had the pleasure of witnessing on Palm Sunday morning in the great church of the parish of the Holy Family which is in charge of the Jesuit fathers- I had as an old Jesuit pupil been most kindly received at St Ignatius College by Fathers Dumbach Casselly and other priests This great college like St Josephs in Philadelphia and indeed like all the Jesuit colleges of America is beyond all praise and the great educational work which it performs is thoroughly appreciated by all classes and all creeds in the United States I might and indeed I feel tempted to write much of what I am sure would be of interest to manyof St Ignatius College It was tlirough my visit to the college that I was enabled to see the sight which I am about to describe Father Dum bach invited me to be present at half past 9 oclock mass and but for his kindness I should not have been able to attend that service for at half past SI oclock mass the church is rigorously reserved for children only It was thia childrens mass which Father Dumbach desired me to see I accepted his invitation gratefully and was undoubtedly rewarded by being enabled to witness what certainly in my opinion is a most impressive sight Of the many spacious and handsome Catholic churches in Chicago that of the Holy Family is one of the finest It adjoins St Ignatius College and is in every respect a truly magnificent edifice and when at dusk it is lighted up with hundreds of electric lamps it presents a really beautiful spectacle In accordance with the appointment I arrived at the church door promptly at half past 9 oclock Father Dumbach who was waiting to meet me introduced me to Father Curran who kindly conducted me into the church The huge edifice was packed from end to end by a little army of 4000 children Beyond two or three ushers and half a dozen Sisters of Charity there were besides the priests and myself no grown up persons in the building So closely were the benches filled by the children that it was only after some difficulty I secured a place from which I could command a good view of the whole scene Now childrens masses are common enough in most countries I have often attended them but never before did I witness a scene such as that which the Church of the Holy Family presented on Palm Sunday morning in Chicago Imagine four thousand children none of them very old some of them quite small cheerful looking and comfortably dressed Outside the great life of Chi cago swept by its dull roar falling upon the car like the sound of a mighty water fall Inside the church when I entered profound silence reigned broken only by the murmurs of the priest saying mass upon the high altar It is a very large church and portions of the side aisles were shrouded in gloom in the early morning Suddenly from one of these dark corners a little voice cried out 11 believe Instantly the voices of all the children qver four thousand be it remembered caught up the prayer and the creed was repeatedas I never heard it rendered before Though the voices were childish they were quite distinct there was no blurt ing over of the words The clear enunciation which marks most American speaking was quite apparent Every syllable could be distinctly heard and the effect produced by the recitation of these thousands of children of the great creed was far more impressive than the greatest ceremonial which I have ever witnessed even in the great temples of Rome After the creed there was another interval of silence and then from another corner of the church another little voice cried out Our Father and the four thousand children repeated the prayer and the Hail Mary Later on the great organ pealed forth It is by the way oneof the fineatorgans in Amer ica and to its notes the four thousand children sang beautifully their voices riaiag sad falling ia perfect cadeuc AxtkcyMBg Nana Citrraa came to a II i my side and whispered an inquiry as to whether I had ever seen so many chil dren in one church and he added they are nearly all of Irish blood I had noticed indeed in their faces as I looked around the Irish type upon every side and I could not help reflecting how the laws which drove the Irish from their homes and banned their religion totally failed in the purpose for which their framers intended them One result of those laws is that at half past 9 oclock every Sunday morning in the great Jesuit church of Chicago 4000 children fervently chant their belief in those things which the King of Englandeven now describes as idolatrous and super stitious When a priest advanced to the front of the altar and in a loud voice read the story of the Passion in English the little army rose with military precision and stood motionless There was no shuffling of feet no signs of impatience such as children will sometimes show No army upon parade at attention ever stood more steadily than those 4000 little children listening to the story so old and yet so ever new All over the city all over America all over the world the churches are filled of course with children but I doubt if any church presents such a spectacle as that was Chicago has been described as a center of iniquity unequaled in any part of the world It may be so but Chicago tins its bright sides as well and one of those bright sides is undoubtedlyI the childrens mass at the Jesuit church When the service was over the little army filed out in perfect marching order to the soundof the organ Once out side they dispersed to their thousand homes carrying with them to almost every district and street in the great city that fragrant atmosphere of purity and belief which is the antidote which alone enables a place like Chicago to survive the poison with which from a thousand sources it is permeated AFTER THE PRIZE Knights of St Johns Branch Are Down to Hard Work The members of St Johns branch of Catholic Knights of America are evi dently determined to carry off the first of the prizes offered by the Central Com mittee Monday night there was a most gratifying

free hos pital the intolerant element which has cursed that city and indeed this entire vicinity for fifty years raised a storm of protest Min isters of Christ held a meeting condemned and warned tIle public against the danger of such an insti tution under Catholic control When llater it was proposed in the City Council to appropriate a small sum in aid of the free hospital the city having no hospital a mass meeting was held speeches made and resolutions adopted protesting against appropriating public money to sectarian institututions and advocating the erection and maintenance of a nonsectarian free hospitalThis outbreak of fanaticism did not deter the good work on the contrary it bore fruit It attracted general attention to the proposed hospital caused discussion and in quiry as to the conduct of Catholic charitable institutions which every intelligent unprejudiced person knows admit and minister to all regardless of creed race or color fully recognizing rights of con science permitting ministrations of any religious denomination de sired by the inmate a right too often refused in many of our nonsectarian public institutions erected and maintained by taxation and controlled by public officials That the New Albany people were convinced of this is manifested by the unity and earnestness with which all classes and denominations cooperated with their Catholic fel lowcitizens in raising the funds to erect furnish and insure the sup port of St Edwards free hospital and their hearty and happy partici pation in its dedication and opening Not only nonCatholic indi 2 viduals and organizations but dis tinctly Protestant societies and con gregations joined in raising contri butions and celebrating the ceremony of its formal opening to its great work of relief to suffering humanityThe is a monument not only to the Very Rev Dean Faller whose generosity furnished the nucleus for its inception and to the Catholics who have devoted months of zealous work in promoting it but to nonCatholics who by their aid and cooperation have rebuked the fanaticism which would deprive their city of such an institution and shown they have that true u l charity characteristic of Chris tianity which is not limited to sec tarian or racial lines but extends to the whole human family regard less of their religious belief where they were born or their station in life a humane charity that sees in every human creature in distress or suffering an object deserving its ministrations an intelligent char ity that recognizes a free hospital a refuge for the homeless and friendless maimed and afflicted as a credit and blessing to every Christian and civilized community no matter by whom it may be erected and managed The people of New Albany are to be congratulated and have every reason to feel proud of St Ed wards hospital the result of their united labors and contributions ENGLAND AMAZED All England is amazed at the feat of an American building con tractor The British Westinghouse Company having contracted to supply electric fittings to American contractors who were changing British steam railways to electric decided to build nine immense buildings the largest plant in the world at Manchester Contracts were awarded British firms in May 1900 and work begun in July By January i the foundation for one building was ready for the steelwork Orders were rushing and the Westinghouse Company must hurry things as time was money The contractors were given thirty months to finish the job They declared it could not be done in five years and gave it up A cablegram was sent to a Pitts burg contractor He cabled his acceptance of a contract to finish the job in fifteen months to forfeit penalty if not completed in time and receive bonus if finished ahead of time He took the next train and steamer and in ten days was in Manchester In a few days he cabled his two best superintendents one in Toledo end the other in New Orleans and they were on the next steamer out of New York after telegraphing architects and foremen in various parts of the United States to follow them The superintendents did not reach Liverpool before the contractor sailed on his return to this country so they landed at Queenstown hired a tug and went out to meet him receiving a large bundle of plans and instructions and the next day were in Manchester took charge and in ten days began work Where the British contractors had 296 workmen the American started with 2500 increasing to 4500 These were obtained by advertising and by urging labor unions to fur nish men Union wages were paid and regulations strictly observed but no interference with the men or work allowed union officials being courteously received and in vited to the contractors office to discuss and settle matters The contractor personally supervised the work Bonuses were paid fast workmen Improved methods and machinery only were used All contracts for materials were made and their prompt delivery by fastest steamers and special trains looked after by special agents The contract was accepted Janu ary 24 1901 to be completed April 24 1902 The nine buildings the largest electric supply plant in the world were turned over to the Westinghouse company completed in ten monthsfive months ahead of time or four years and two months ahead of the shortest possible time in which the British contractors said it could be done The American contractor pockets hiii profits and a bonus of 40000 and the Westinghouse Company gains over four years of business by giving the job to the hustling Yankeebut the British contract ors and manufacturers cant see how it was done nor how it pays HIIn the death of Col Blanton Duncan formerly of this city in Los Angeles Cal Wednesday the workingmen of the country have lost a true and ardent friend whose services and purse were ever ready to aid them Wealthy by inherit alice highly educated gifted with talent fitting him for the higher class in life he preferred the plain life and people and championed the cause of the poor and labor He was uncompromisingly honest detesting duplicty Frank and out spoken fearless and unyielding in what he deemed right he never deserted a friend nor forgot an enemy An American railroad syndicate gets the franchise for building a railroad from the City of Mexico to the Pacific coast The matter has been under

the Drubbing by Menellk Doers Can Maintain the War For Four Years Longer YOUNG BOERS ARE NOW AFIELD Michael Davitt who has just finished his history of the Boer war which is to be published in the United States in May is resting in Paris He said to an American correspondent last Saturday President Steyn is the Bayard of the Transvaal war His wise counsels and the brilliant dashes of Dewet explain many of the Boer successes His second invasion of Cape Colony is a masterful military stroke and the colony today is harder to conquer than at any period of the war Gen French who is Lord Kitcheners best aide and the only one that the Boers feared has been operating in the colony for eight months and has accomplished nothing The young Cape Dutchman is the ideal soldier These young Boers are now afield and have a contempt for Tommy Atkins They are convinced that one Boer can whip five Englishmen and the various engagements of the war cause me to agree with them Only once and that was under Gen Joubert have there been 5000 Boers in one en gagement I believe the Boer soldiers and Boer officers are far superior to Eng lish soldiers and officers in intelligence The Boers have revolutionized modern warfare The man and his horse and gun are the three things that make good warfare The Boer war has already made antiquated Lord Wolseleys recent book on military tactics Lord Roberts has declared the war is over As a matter of fact the British are beaten Should the latter win in the end it will not be due to military genius but to the slow process of attrition superior numbers and financial resources The soldier who fires fifteen well aimed shots in one minute and who is capable of moving fifty miles in one night surprises the slow Englishman I believe the Boers can maintain the war for the next four years and my advice to them in to decline to make terms on any condition except that of independence If they see fit to make terms however they ought to insist on keeping their arms If they agree to disarmament theyll be ground down like India and Ireland for the English never forget the terrible humiliation that has been put on them by the Boers Conan Doyles book on the war which the British are circulating universally is a tissue of falsehoods England is loathed and despised by every country in Europe and lie as she may about the war England will emerge from it as badly crippled as Italy was after Meneliks drubbing since the signing of the agreements rent had been paid by the tenants to whom receipts were given with the words on account of rent In one case a tenant had paid five years rent within the past few years Tier case was adjourned for two months Two other cases were adjourned for a fortnight in order that the tenants might be professionally represented It was mentioned that owing to pressure of legal business else where they were unable to procure a solicitor for that day and the magistrates expressed a doubt as to whether the ac ceptance by the landlord of money which coincided with the amount of the rent did amount to a breaking of the caretakers agreements News has reached CnrrickonSbannon of a terrible tragedy enacted at a place called Kilclare which is situated from that place about seven place Unfortu nately the report was too true A young man named Patrick Doherty who had been residing with his father James Doherty who was a farmer and who also managed the Kilclare Postoffice met a terrible death either by his own hand or by that of a fellow being The whole affair is clouded in mystery and information as to the real facts of the tragedy were not brought to light until the inquest had taken place In de ceaseds bedroom a sixchambered re volver has been found and the chambers were discharged There were several bullet wounds in young Dohertys head and sides It has been stated that the unfortunate fellow shot himself and afterwards jumped from a small window in his bedroom but the surroundings would scarcely admit of that The body of the deceased man presented frightful appearance his head being in a regular pulp The police have thus far been unable to fathom the mystery or findanyI clewto his assailants One feature of the taffeta gowns being made now is the ruching of the same material used for trimming flounces are also in order and the combination gives a quaint

Letter From St Andrews Island Has Preached Sermons In Bap tist Churches and Been Guest of Jews Preparing For the Erection of School Building and Chapel I ACQUAINTING HIMSELF WITH NATIVES Special Letter to the Kentucky Irish American St ANDREWS ISLAND COLOMBIA March 17Slnce my last communication I have made an exploration trip through the length of the cast side of the island At the north end is the town of San Andres and at the south end that of St Luis probably a 1000 people living in each I also visited Old Providence Island and remained there a week The Baptists have three churches there On Sunday I preached in the principal one Its minister Rev S Howardreceived me very kindly and in his opening prayer before my sermon said something likethisMerciful Father look down we be leech thee upon this assembly and prepare our hearts so as to receive therein the seed of thy holy word which thy servant whom thou hast sent into our midst today is about to sow May it bring forth in due season hundredfold fruit I preached on the Beauties of the Catholic Church explaining the meaning of the various seasons and festivals in the course of the year and especially it being the first Sunday of the penitential season of Lent set apart by the church for our meditation upon Christs passion and death The congre gation listened with close attention for anhourAfterward the minister of one of the other churches Rev E Howard invited me to preach to his congregation I must say it to their praise the people in this island who are nearly all Baptists treated me very kindly during my stay among them A certain Protestant gen tleman Mr Holgesonj who lives in San Andres but has also a house in Old Providence offered me the same for my use during my stay which I gratefully accepted and for which may God bless him and his numerous family The peo pIe brought me every day milk and eggs and oranges and other fruits and their greetings were as friendly as if they were Catholics I must say that their conduct toward me surprised me so much the more because the experience I hadwith the members of the Baptist church in St Andrews Island was just to the contrary Besides the church which the Baptists in St Andrews have on the top of the hill In the middle of the island they also have an old meeting house in the town of San Andres which they use on some week days for prayer meetings Having no place yet where I could hold public service I wrote to the Baptist minister Rev B Livingston asking for the use of said meeting house on Sunday mornings when not used by them The reply I received from him was I read your request before the assembly Thereupon they unanimously au thorized me to send you a definite reply to the effect that your request is not grantedI it was proper for me to acknowledge the receipt of this reply so I wrote as follows Dear Beloved Brethren in Christ Please allow me to acknowledge the re ceipt of the answer which you directed your reverend pastor to send me in regard to my request asking for the use of your meeting house He writes I read your request to the assembly etc I Imagine- it must have pained the heart of your good pastor whom I consider a sincere minister of Christs gospel which is love that you required of him to send me such an uncharitable answer I had been told beforehand by an old resident of the isl and that such was the spirit among you but charity forbade me to believe it till I would have proof Nor was I inclined- to believe it since my experience with the Baptist brethren in Old Providence was just the contrary they treating me most kindly I preached in one of their churches and was invited to do so in another I have been requested by several newspapers of the United States from time to time to send communica lions about my experiences in these islands How strange it must appear to their readers to hear of the difference be tween the Baptists of these two islands in regard to observing the great command ment of the Master Love thy neighbor- as thyself Praying that the Lord may pour down upon you his spirit the spirit of love I remain yours in Christ PATIIRR ALBERT STRomlrj It is really strange why the Baptists in this island should show such animosity and prejudice against me and the Catholic cause I have always since I came here showed myself friendly toward them na sermon I preached at San Luis I plainly stated that I had not come to cause disturbance among the members- of their church my object being simply to preach and explain the doctrine of the Catholic church leaving it to the hearers to judge for themselves where the truth Is to be found To preach the truth and to make the hearers accept same are two different things I cap do the former but the latter must be left to the hearers Gods grace alone can make them accept the truth of the gospel for faith Iaar- crace which usually iis given by God to UitM who ask for it Ask and you shall receive I have during the pelt six WOH the en r II Ci deavored to select a good location for a school which for the beginning may also be used as a chapel It is of no little im portance to select a healthy aud conven ient location so that as many children asI possible can reach it I hope that in my next communication I will have the satis faction of informing the readers that I have been successful In this regard Any donations for these missions will be ac cepted with thanks Thus far I have daily celebrated holy mass at my roomsI when at home in San Luis however iinI several private houses and even at th residence of Mr Revbensteln the only Jew in the island Though he is not a believer in Christ still waiting like allI Israelites for His coming he is one of my best friends in San Luis having re ceived from him a standing invitation this o table I hope that the God of Abra ham Isaac and Jacob will reward him for his charity by giving him light to see On Easter Sunday I intend to celebrate holy mass under the roof of a little hut which a certain Francis Newball allowedl me to put up in his cocoanut grove A number of gentlemen volunteered to form- a I male choir for the occasion and JohnI James most kindly offered the use of hisI organ None of the aforesaid gentlemenI being Catholics I hope that the goodl Lord some day will reward them for their charity shown toward the priest by giving them the grace of holy faith In my next communication I shall giv a more detailed description of the moun talus Old Providence islandas also ofr the little island Santa Catalina St Catherine with its historical ruins of th ancient fort of the English privateers iin centuries gone by FATHER ALBERT STRoE- B4EFRANKFORT What Has Been Done Reccntl by the Young Mens Institute Special Letter to
