Violation Started by the Government President Roosevelt Sends Col E II Crowdor to New Orleans British Maintain a Great Mili tary Post With Officers Always on Duty SHIPMENTS MADE TO SOUTH AFRICA Right here on liberty loving American soil within hearing distance of the mon ument erected to the memory of Andrew Jackson at Port Chalmette nine miles north of New Orleans and on the same spot on which was fought the memorable battle of January 8 1815 there is operat ing under English control and sustained by English money a recruiting camp for equines for use in the South African war against the Boers The attention of President Roosevelt has been called to this indirect violation of the neutrality laws by the heroic Gen Pearson who fought with his countrymen until dis abled and who is now in the United States He has repeatedly called atten tion to the existing state of affairs but not until recently has his protest been heeded Now the President has com municated through Secretary of State Hay with Gov Heard of Louisiana The latter wrote to Mayor Capdevielle of New Orleans but as it was outside his r jurisdiction the matter finally reached the Sheriff of St Bernard parish who answered that as far as he knew there was no recruiting of men for South Africa going on within the confines of St Ber nard but that he was aware supplies were being shipped from the post of Chalmette under the auspices of the British Government President Roose A velt has determined to sift the matter and accordingly he has sent Col K H Crowder of the Department of the Lakes stationed at Chicago to investigate the matter and make careful inquiry of every minutiae The headquarters of the Brit ish officers are at the St Charles Hotel with regular office hours during which time a great volume of business is trans acted by Capt Fenner and his assistants Their visitors include steamship repre sentatives cattle dealers and others who have any connection with the Chalmette post The English officers have pre scribed army regulations are required to be at that post at a certain time and remain until relieved Officers are constantly on duty One hundred acres of pasture and land on which are huge sheds each measuring 100x50 feet and thirty feet high and one which alone will accommodate 4000 mules serve to give the place an appearance of being an army garrison There is also a freight warehouse wherein are stored lumber tools and other articles Standing near is the headquarters of the veterinary sur geons and the hospital for sick or maimed animals AH equines brought here are subjected to a course of treatment ifsick and fed well on oats corn and good feed until turned out on pasture where they are allowed to remain until in firstclass condition when they are shipped direct on his Majestys transports across the ocean to South Africa These transports anchored in the harbor of the Mississippi and flying the union jack add a mili tary aspect to the scene that is entirely out of keeping with our peaceful atti tude Large numbers of men on the wharf are kept busy loading and unload ing these vessels ana packing provisions Ship carpenters are remodeling and repairing the transports for their long journey across the South Atlantic and it has been many a day since such energy and bustle have broken the stillness of Chal mette Almost the same can be said of Lathrop Mo as is here written of Chal mette La In the latter place ten thou sand acres of land are used as pasture EnglIsh Africa Animals bought from any and all points West are sent here and fed until ready for shipment to the clearing station near New Orleans to be loaded if in condition into transports for their destination Seventytwo car loads mark the largest number of daily shipments and nine thousand head of horses the largest daily receipts The animals are branded N on the right shoulder to signify that it is aNorth American horse the Canadian and Hungarian horses being marked C and H respect ively The shrewdest secrecy was observed in all the English operations here since the establishment qf these posts though in 1899 alone it was recorded that seven ships were sent out from South port La in 1900 there were fiftyseven ships in 1901 seventyseven ships left the latter place and in January Febru ary and up to March 15 this year there have been over 23000 horses and mules seat ont from Southport to aid Eng lands cavalrymen in the unjust and uncalledfor war of extermination that is going on in South Africa If all these facts do not argue a complete violation of neutrality laws of our country then the days have paused in which men consid ered the spirit of the law honestly and for the good oiYtheirhawesand country rr w KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS Hon John J Delaneys Enter taining and Instruct ive Lecture Hon John J Delaney of New York City delivered an entertaining and in structive lecture at Elks Hall Wednesday night under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus His subject was The Catholic as an American Citizen About two hundred knights and their lady friends were in attendance In addition many of the knights invited their friends both among the clergy and laity Among the clergymen present were Rev Father Raffo Very Rev Father Ward Very Rev Father Fowler O P Rev Father Hourigan Rev Father Leo Rev Father Gausephol aud others Mr Delaney is a lawyer of ability and has held high positions with the Knights of Columbus for years He is a profound student and eloquent talker He held his audience spellbound more than two hoursAs a matter of fact America and Americans had little to do with the sub ject matter of the lecture It was only in conclusion that they were brought in at all Mr Delaney went over the history of the church from the birth of Christ until the present time Of course this included practically the history of the world But Mr Delaney showed conclusively how an American could be a better American because he was a Catholic and a better Catholic because he was an American He paid particular attention to the divorce laws of America which are sapping away the foundations of the family and the family makes the State He was warmly applauded when heconcludedDr was master of ceremonies Wednesday night aud acquitted himself admirablyThis the last of the series of lectures that have been given during the winter months under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus Each and every one of these entertainments have been thoroughly enjoyed and reflect great credit on John H Shea Chairman of the Entertainment Committee i and his co workers STEADY GROWTH JPresident Frank Murphy presided with marked dignity and impartiality over the meeting of Mackin Council Tuesday night The proceedings were made interesting by the initiation of Stuart Glass and the application of Walter Adams for membership The growth of the council is steady and the present administration is meeting with phenomenal success AOAIN ON STAND John R Hourigan the well known hackman and for years a familiar figure about the Court House square is again at his old stand after a long illness that was at one time regarded critical Mr Hourigan isan Irishman of the old school and a veteran of the civil war He has conveyed more young couple to church to be married and children to be christened than any other man in Louisville Lawyers and others doing business

Show a Large Percentage- of Gain Among the Catholics THE NUMBER THAT SPEAK IRISH The special census of Kildare and Louth repeats almost without variation the features noted in the other detailed reports on the Irish counties Both coun ties have declined in population at practi cally the same rate Kildare has fallen in population during the decade from 70206 to 63666 a decrease of 6640 or 94 per cent But a thousand of the de crease was on the Curragh camp so that the percentage of decline in the ordinary population was about 8 per cent Louth fell during the decade from 71914 to 65820 or 85 per cent As in the case of other counties the decrease is chiefly in the rural areas Naas has increased in population by 27 per cent Dundalk has gone up to 13076 an increase of 5 per cent and is now larger than Drogheda where there was a decrease of 948 or 69 per cent This rate of decrease however was much lower than in the rural areas of Louth where it varied from 108 to 163 per cent Athy however is an excep tion to the rule of the comparative stead fastness of the urban population On a population of 4886 there was a decrease of 1287 or 263 per cent in Athy during the decade The extraordianary decerease is partially explained by the fact that census night 1891 was the eve of a fair and Athy had a temporarily increased population But that does not completely explain the fact The District Inspector reports that the increase in the popula tion of Athy in 1891 was owing to the temporary influx of a number of persons to attend a fair and to increased employ ment in connection with brickmaking These new resources have not sufficed to stay the decay of the town and district which seems exceptional As we have already noted in the case of other Leln ster counties for which the detailed census has been furnished the Protestant population seems to be decaying even more rapidly than the Catholic The percentage of Catholic in Kildare has gone up from 841 per cent to 861 and in Louth from 913 per cent to 915 Apparently Protestant energy is notable to cope with the depressing influences that mar Irish progress The Irish language tables are of special interest on this occasion Louth had populationln left in Louth five old Gaels who knew got SoglWj They pave followed their Vr y fathers since The bilingual population has however increased from 2671 to 3204 The main increase is between the ages of three and thirty In 1891 there were only 216 between those ages in Louth who could speaklrish The number had increased Jastjeartq932i The country of the OMores and OConnors has also felt the stirring of the Gael spirit In 1891 only 341 persons in Kil dare could speak Irish that number had gone up to 1198 last April There is only one unsatisfactory point in the Kil dare figures Only 170 of the 1198 are girls or women There are only fifty Kildare women between eighteen and thirty who know Irish while there are 602 Kildare men That is a reproach the women of Kildare must remove before April 1 1911 says the Dublin Freeman DEDICATION St Anthonys Hospital Will Open to the Public April 29 The magnificent new St Anthonys Hospital will be dedicated by Right Rev Bishop

For the Chimes He Loved to Ring His Knoll t Out at St Alexis Hospital at Cleveland in a pretty little white room a benign whitehaired old man is breathing out his life As the days pass slowly on each one bearing him nearer to a peaceful end his one question addressed to the softvoiced nuns as they glide to and fro is Are the chimes finished yet And when the nurse answers Not yet he smiles patiently passes his fingers through his hair like an aureole and turns away Down at Toledo a score of workmen are climbing like flies over the tall steeple of St Josephs church making It ready for the set of chimes which formerly hung there And when they lag at their task the foreman simply remarks Remember Father Andrews one wish in life is to hear these chimes againThe patient old man at the hospital is Father Andrew Sauvedet It was years ago that he was seut to Toledo St Josephs church had no chimes then but Father Andrew as they know him there by dint of economy and much labor bought a set As the years passed the steeple in which they swung became too weak to bear them and they were taken down Like the old steeple Father Andrew weakened too He labored hard and he gave himself little rest nod less sustenance and he came to Cleve land finally to end his days As that end drew on over the old man stole a longing to hear once more the music of the chimes he loved so well The story went out and found its way to his former parishioners Father Andrew wants to hear the bells again before he dies men told one another Then they reached into their pockets without another word and the work on the steeple began Day and night they are working there and the doctors have promised to take the old priest back when the task is done And the first peal of the rejuvenated bells may ring out joy into a dying mans ears CHARITY CARNIVAL Never before was there such activity among Louisville Elks Their coming charity carnival will surpass in every respect anything ever undertaken by them and

England Threatens to Send Ten Battalions to Awe the People Ireland Asks Only What Has Been Approved in Commons TRADES UNION RULES AND WAGES Now that the British Government hiss decided to suppress the United Irish League and has ordered ten battalions of English and Scotch militia to Ireland for that purpose it is interesting to inquire what is the League trying to do A copy of its constitution and rules and a state meut of its aims printed in Dublin have been forwarded by a correspondent Stated in briefest form the avowed objects of the organization are as follows First Full national selfgovernment ofIrelandSecondUniversal andcompulsory sale of the landlords interest in the land to the tenants Third A Stateaided system for en abling farm laborers in the country and workingmen in towns and cities to become owners of their own homes FourthRestitution to Ireland of the 115000000 a year in excess of her just share of imperial taxation collected by the British Government for many years pastFifthComplete educationalequality for the Catholics of Ireland Including the establishment and endowment of a university in whose benefits they can conscientiously participate SixthThe repeal of the coercion act and of the treasonfelony act under which political offenses are prosecuted as ordinary crime- sSeventhTo secure the election of county councils which will come to gether once a year in a national council and agitate for home rule on conditions not less favorable than those in Glad St4prq ale rate 1rbpl ii Eighth Preference for articles of Irish manufacture in all public contracts NinthPreservation of the Gaelic language and the teaching thereof in all publicly supported schools and colleges TenthMaintenance of lrades union rules and rates of wages by all public bodiesOn their face there seems to be nothing in these avowed objects of the League to call for its suppression by armed force The entire programme appears to be simply a new movement by the Irish people to secure no more and no less than was only a few years ago offered to them by a British Prime Minister and approved by a substantial majority of the House of Commons In other words the Salisbury Government proposes in effect to declare that Gladstones homo rule bill was treaso- nWORTHILY BESTOWED Badges For Lieut William Schmidt and Capt Kraemer Last Monday evening two popular and faithful city officials Lieut William Schmidt of the police department and Capt John Kraemer of the fire epart ment were presented with handsome gold badges Both have friends all over the y city many of whom gatherd at Walters Brothers brewery the scene of many happy surprises but none greater than this The presence of the two gallant officers was secured by Messrs Sticks Welker Henry Kerlin and Will Schaeffer and at 9 oclock in the presence of nearly one hundred people William M Higgins made the presentation speech congratulating both upon the friends they had made and the citizens upon having such excellent and watchful guardians Each was the recipient of an elegant gold badge bearing appro priate inscription which Capt Jacobs and Chief Phil Tyson pinned upon their breasts The honor was entirely unex pected and neither could hardly find words to express his feelings of surprise and gratitude A band of music was a then brought upon the scene and for a couple of hours jojllty and mirth prevailed Lieut Schmidt and Capt Krae mer have been in the service of the city for about ten years and during that time they have made records of which any man might be proud The honor was

1go2 IFATHER AND FRIEND Rev Peter De Fraine died sud denly at St Catharines Academy Washington county KY last Mon day aged seventysix years He was a native of Belgium where he was ordained December 20 1851 coming direct to this diocese He recently celebrated his golden jubi lee at Lebanon During his more than fifty years as priest he served 1 as pastor of St Josephs Bards town President of St Josephs Col lege pastor of St Charles Marion I county and St Augustines Leba non resigning the last named charge about seven years ago on account of his advanced age since which time he has officiated only as chaplain at St Catherines Acad emy He was noted for his kindly manner humility and charity the characteristics of the oldtime mis sioner Father De Fraine was known and universally loved by old and young throughout Central Kentuckyand particularly the children for whom he always evinced a fondness and fatherly solicitude He was a saintly man with sympathy for all and never an unkind word for any THAT MULE CAMP w The agitation for and against the purchase and shipment by the British Government from this country of horses and mules for the Boer war continues and is ap proaching another decision The Boer sympathizers protest against it as a violation of neutrality law the stock raisers and traders of the r West who find ready sale and good prices for their horses and mules protest against interference as it is not a violation of neutrality law But the sympathies of the one nor the personal profit of the other nor indeed the partiality or prejudice of the President and his Cabinet are not the bases on which the matter is to be decided but the law which it is the duty of the Government to enforce regardless of results to either of the protesters The purchase in this country and shipment from our ports of horses and mules food clothing medi cines or anything else except arms and ammunition for use of belligerents in a foreign war in the ordinary way is not a violation of our neutrality law and it has been so decided in answer to previous protests Up to date the privilege of the British to purchase and ship horses mule meats and grain and of the Boers to solicit money purchase and ship food and cloth ing have not been interfered with nor are they likely to be since they are not violations of law But the opponents to the British horse and mule purchases and ship ments have struck a new tack and raised a new issue in the case The neutrality law does forbid the establishment and maintenance of a military organization camp or base of supplies by belligerents on Amer ican soil It is now charged that the British mule camp near New Orleans where most of the pur chases are received inspected and shipped is such an unlawful estab lishment that it is in charge of commissioped British military officers governed by British military regulations the inspection and care of the stock is by British enlisted men as teamsters of the army and u finally that the stock is shipped directly from the camp under British military supervision on reg ularly commissioned British trans acts only This puts the question in an lI entirely different phase for which vJhereiaJIit1precedeu in our qiis II i 0 p tory for guidance If the charges are true however it is clearly a violation of the purpose if not the letter of the neutrality law The matter was considered in Cabinet meeting and referred to the Attor ney General for investigation and decision An army officer was sent to New Orleans to make the inves tigation While there he visited the camp examined into its man agement and business heard evi dence pro and con and has re turned to Washington It is stated in newspaper dispatches that his report will sustain the charges then again that it will not As he is an army officer sent on a special mission by his superiors it is clear that all statement as to the nature of his report are mere guesses since his report will be made first to his superiors and can only reach the public through the department and probably not until the Cabinet has passed upon the case DODGING THE REAL ISSUE The United Irish League has not been proclaimed nor the coercion law put into general effect in Ire land as anticipated The recent meetings of the Ministers have not been attended by the Viceroy for Ireland Lord Cadogan and it is probable the Irish question has been shelved for the present The Government has its hands full with the Boer war peace negotiations finances the Eastern question the coronation and a few other things more urgent Arrests on petty charges to be tried before Magis trates continue in some parts of Ire land the parties being fined in small amounts or imprisoned for short terms barring appeal to higher courts which the Governments ems desirous of avoiding since a decision on the law may declare such arrests and prosecutions illegal and thus stop what seems to be merely a policy of intimidation to check the growth and influence of the United Irish League but is having the very opposite effect None of those arrested were charged with any real crime but simply with inciting to unlawful acts by speaking at League meet ings or with encouraging the same by attending such meetings but no one has been charged with member ship of the League thus seeking to hamper or destroy the League with out deciding as to its lawful or un lawful character the issue which would have to be passed on if an appeal toa higher court were al lowed the very thing which the League leaders desire and the Gov ernment evades by arresting and prosecuting only for petty charges not appealable WILL IT BE PEACE For the past two weeks all England has been on tiptoe and the world is waiting the result of a confefence of the Boer leaders and British officials in South Africa the Boer officials in Holland and the British Government regarding the ending of the Boer war What terms have been proposed or cons dered is not known nor is there any ground on which to base a surmise of the result That it has continued so long is evidence of disagreement on early propositions if not of final disagreement The first British hope at any rate has been blasteddissension between the Boers as to acceptance of peace at any terms to end thewaras the representatives of the Transvaal and Orange Free State seem to Stand firmljrand harjnpniously to gether nor have any fthe Boer troops even from other provinces rJ of South Africa manifested any desire to desert and give up the cause and accept British terms The Boer representatives in South Africa met at Klerksdorp and after formulating their terms submitted them by cable to Presi dent Kruger and his advisers in Holland then proceeding to Pre toria to confer with Lord Kitchener and other British officials That the Boer terms were not satisfactory to the British is evident from the fact that there has been two weeks of cable messages between Kitch ener and London several meetings of the ministry very secret and the outcome is not yet hinted though all England is anxiously longing for it General trade Government affairs Parliamentary business stock market and finan cial transactions have come to a halt depending on the agreement or disagreement of the peace con ference Even the ministers are mum refusing all information and Parliament is at a standstill for lack of business from the various departments which is being with held Reports as to the respective proposals and the status of the negotiations are unreliable as the Boer representatives are likewise reticent It is such foolish bravado as that of a few Kansas City union bakers that brings labor unions into disre pute and workingmen into trouble A boycott was declared against a nonunion bakery and a committee stood in front of the place to warn patrons away The proprietor ap plied for and obtained a temporary injunction against the strikers ob structing the entrance to his bakery When the officer served the notice on the committee one of them took it tore it up and threw it into the street and the others denounced and cursed the officer and court Whatever the merits of the case it may be taken for granted that the Judge soaked the committee for such flagrant and uncalledfor con tempt as such conduct is wholly inexcusable and can not be tol erated The need of more rigid enforce ment of sanitary regulations is in dicated in the report on smallpox For the first three months of this year there were in the United States 24194 cases and 708 deaths as against 11496 cases and 149 deaths in the same period of last year It is noted that the increase in this terrible scourge is entirely in rural districts and a few States where sanitary regulations are not en forced and which have no provision for the care and isolation of infec tious diseases to prevent the incep tion and spread The greatest reception yet given William Redmond M P in this country occurred Tuesday night at St Louis The immense Expo sition Music Hall was filled to over flowing with enthusiastic Irish Americans and on the stage were clergymen of all denominations and leading citizens and State officers of Missouri More than 3000 was subscribed to assist the Irish causeIt seems we are to have a new jail at last The Lord knows it is time for the old one has been re peatedly condemned by grand juries as unfit for a prison and a discredit to the community Give credit where it is deserved Score one for Mayor Grainger And now Mayor Grainger is catching it for his appointment of Library Trustees Why of course He couldnt appoint all the expect ants nor please everybody There has been no objection to any of the appointees but the opposition must get in its kick It is one of the anomalies of politics that the United States Senators who oppose retaining the Philip pines because it will add an alien race to our population also oppose reenacting the law to

FATHER KENNEDY Able and Eloquent Domini can Nowat St Loui- sBertrands Rev Father Reginald Kennedy one of the ablest and most eloquent priests of the Dominican order has been assigned to St Louis Bertrands church on Sixth street Father Kennedy has for some time past been doing missionary work throughout the State His many friends and admirers in this city are rejoicing over having him stationed among them the hope being general throughout the parish since his first sermon at the Dominican church that his services might be secured Those who heard Father Kennedy preach say his sermons will rank very high among those delivered in the Dominican church where the preaching as a rule is of the higher order PRETTY SCENE +The ball and reception of Mackin Council at Fountain Ferry on Thursday night added another brilliant social triumph to the long list of achievements of that popular organization The ball room was filled to its fullest capacity and the dining hall was also well crowded fully 5QQ persons being served there during the evening among the guests being ladies and gentlemen prominent in society circles from all parts of the city The programme contained the most uptodate dances and was gone through with thorough enjoyment The affair reflected great credit upon the committee which had charge Messrs Jack Shelley Charles Raidy and Presi dent Frank Murphy Never did the ball room present a more brilliant scene as the young women were exquisitely dressed and bewitchingly lovely and the large floor committee and men as gallant and brave as the knights of old HINTS ON STYLE Entire suits are made of moire which is good style if you fancy it but this sort of silk always suggests an old ladys gown much more than the plain taffeta It shows up in the childrens department this season so there is no definite rule as to materials for the old or young Linen gowns both in white and colors promise to have great popularity this season Blue dull pink green and beige are first choices in colors and some embroidery in white even if it is only on the waist is the modish decoration with tucks and stitched bands in addition- In some of the ecru batiste gowns you see a very simple trimming of squares of the material joined at the points andset in like an insertion with the open work stitch This may head the flounce and outline the seams at either side of the front breadth where the flounce begins Vegetable silk is the particular kind which enters into the construction of these fancy braids as it is said to be more durable and more glossy for this purpose than the pure silk The herring bone braids are very useful as well as effective and all sorts of pretty designs are carried out by running narrow ribbon through them to form loop edges and pretty bow knot patterns There are fancy open braids too which in themselves have a very lacy appear ance the grenadine braids being espe dally pretty in combination with lace or alone Pretty flower designs with leaves are formed of braid very narrow of course and French knots and then you see all sorts of designs in what are called puff braids both in black and white and in braids with irregular edges very soft and pliable so they can be ar ranged in almost any form One very attractive model in black cloth is striped around the entire length with cloth bands set on incurved lines which give a pretty sweep to the skirt The peculiarity of these bands is that they are piped on the upper edge with green silk stitched several rows below and left to hang loose on the lower edge There are wide spaces between the bands and the little blouse coat is trimmed to correspond following the same curves on the skirt Piping with color with black and white striped slik and using narrow braid to give thesame etfectaroundth- eogee oTtbe bafcds setrntofee among the seasons modes of decoration and in numerable rpwe of stitching are quite as evident as ever 1 a i S9S9SS6SS9SSS9S9SOGIEtY

the proposed Irish language section at the Cork exhibition is likely to be dropped for want of adequate funds to carry the project through The proposal to organize this section originated with the Cork branch of the Gaelic League who proceeded with the work on the understanding that they were to receive j 500 from the exhibition committee as an initial contribution towards the ex penditure which the undertaking would involve The balance of the outlay they hoped to make up by voluntary subscrip tions The Cork branch in conjunction with the Cork County Council of the Gaelic League formed a committee to organize the Gaelic pavilion and the hitch which has occurred in the arrange ments is said to be due to the action of the building and arrangements commit tee of the exhibition in
