I GENTSVOLUME KENTUCKY1 i i IRISH AMERICAN i I i 1 I V rr H LACK OF SPIRIT Rev Father Fleming an Amor lean Friar on the Need of Federation Deplores Catholic Apathy and Tells Why Infidelity Grows J Laymen Have Great Work to Perform in This Country SHOULD SUPPORT CATHOLIC PRESS l One of the most valuable and timely utterances evoked by the movemen which has resulted in a federation of the Catholic societies of the country is con tamed in a communication to the Sacred Heart Review from Rev J M Fleming O S A of Lawrence Mass The sub ject of Father Flemings letter is Catholic unity or rather the lack of it Catholic federation says Father Fleming will be a ridiculous fiasco unless more thorough Catholic spirit can be infused into the hearts of our Catholic men To begin with it can not be gain said that there is a lamentable deficiency in Catholic spirit all over the country Talk to the majority of our Catholic men of intelligence education and social position about the affairs of the church and their faculties otherwise on the alert are languid and dormant They are not interested in the ultimate fate of the Filipinos or in the progress of the church in this country Their ethical standard is not much above and not seldom below that of their irreligious neighbors You might appeal to them with all the eloquence and fiery zeal o St Paul and still produce no impression After you have finished they evince a decided feeling of relief Such topics are very wearisome to them The first thing that ought to strike th members of the Catholic Federation says Father Fleming is to take a decide- stand on religious education Thinking men in this country he continues realize that the present system of education though advisable ini many respects is turning out a popula tion that will in the future be a greater menace to the welfare of the country than anything else we can think of Th majority of our Catholic children ar educated in an atmosphere that is to sa the least highly conducive to infidelity Godless education is now doing in the present what proselytism failed to do in the past Satan never devised any scheme more potently calculated to rob people of the faith than public school education It is absolute folly to say that the home and the church are suffi cient to mold the minds and hearts of children according to the principles an nounced by Jesus as necessary for ou salvation We have seen the present system in operation for half a century with the most disastrous results I be lieve that it would be almost as difficult to persuade the majority of our Catholics of the necessity of religious education as the enemies of our faith They are so wedded to this iniquitous system that they can scarcely be dislodged Th numbers of Catholics are increasin every day If one hundred thousand men would announce it all over th country and use the press whereve- possible the Catholic people would begin to think As soon as all the Catholic people are united on this question then it is practically solved There is not a government on earth that could resist the appeal of 15000000 of people Let them advocate the send- Ing of their young men to Catholic col leges where they can be trained in the true principles of philosophy and ethics Many of our Catholic men Ignorantly hold views contrary to the infallibl- moral teaching of the church In these institutions of learning they will imbibe the Catholic spirit which will make them more than nominal members Young men of respectable Catholic families have been known to enter Harvard and Prince ton and come out with the Catholic fait lost arid their hearts corrupted by th most revolting forms of vice I have not yet heard of any attempts being made for the dissemination o Catholic truth through the medium of the press Take up a census of any of our s r parishes and inquire how many subscribe for or read a Catholic paper The priest will be shocked to find that he can count the number on the fingers of two hands Every sect society or organization that desires to keep alive interest in its affairsI sends broadcast all over the countryI papers that announce thelrdo tri the railroad electric car street stores hotels and private homes one is every 0fPrint1Ingmatter ment the question but takes care to read but annd you will find all kinds of trashy liters turerbut nothing Catholic As soon as ins known that an author lsa Catholic he or she fs Immediately condemned a dry or tiresome If Catholics read Cath olic newspapers they would becomei more familiar with the beat CatboHc 5 literature and cultivate a taste for iitst perusal Literary soidrsties should be w formed everywhere through the country in cities towns and villages Letevery parish have a library of the best books where the young mind can be made familiar with and proud of Ute glories and achievements of the church in aU ages and nations Those who have the advantage of a liberal education ought to bestir then selves If they are sound and take an interest in the manses they will be sound too We must anchor the workman to the Church of God or lily government wilt collapse Already owing to the spread of false doctrines the laborer is displaying alarming signs of discontent The priest must be aided in stemming this tide of falsehood by the more cultivatedmem bers of his congregation Falsehood dwindles down through the masses from the great master minds of this andevery other country The Catholic man with ia knowledge of correct principles derived from St Thomas and St Augustine can aid in counteracting the baleful influence of those iniquitous propagators of error In every large city a correspondingly populatedtones ought to atleast one dred men who would pledge themselves to receive the Eucharist once a month After the terrible disturbances in Prance during 1848 a small knot of men approached a very learned practical and pious priest fpr advice They wished him to outline some definite plan for them to follow for the reestablishment of order and social tranquility The answer he gave was unexpected Go to communion once a week and get as many as you can to do the same If we read over the lives of OConnell Windthorst Mon talembert Mallinckrodt and others who were leaders of great national movements we find that they were at critical periods frequent communicants A yearly communicant or one who goes less often will not have the grace necessary to sustain him in moments of trial or fatigue Like the valiant knights of old they must cling to the side of Christ if they expect to do His work or receive His constant benediction greatfwork to perform country shirks it he may cause the loss of in numerable souls together with his own Let him devote some portion of the time that he now devotes to clubs and useless anderaise him up on the last day newdfederation ought to be the earnest and heartfelt prayer of every Catholic in America o 0 orE JOLLYDAY a Features of the St Phlll

political grounds In the first place be has lived in Louisville the best part of his adult life awl has con ducted himself in a manner which en titles him to the respect of every citizen He comes from an old Maryland family which settled In Nelson county Ky over 100 years ago This family has al ways been Democratic At no time in previous years has Capt Hagan been too busy with his private affairs to respond to the calls of his party in the various political campaigns He has been on the stump for years arguing for Democratic principles and always ready to subscribe to the legitimate expenses of the cam paign He has never asked office but once and when he was honored by his party in being elected Prosecuting At torney of the Police Court many years ago he made a record which has never been surpassed in that office His voice has always been raised against proscrip tion in politics on account of religion or nationality and has always been opposed to sumptuary legislation He has on many occasions taken sides in favor of the laboring man During his long residence in Louisville he has always taken- a deep interest in everything that goes to build up the community Besides all this Capt Hagan Is a deeply read lawyer No member of the bar has studied harder or is better quali fied to fill the position of Common Pleas Judge All the members of the Louisville bar concede this and many of the ablest attorneys are working for hIs nomination He is honest learned and upright and would be an ornament to the bench If all those who know andrespect Capt Hagan for his various good qualities go to the polls this afternoon and vote for him his majority will be very large Of course Capt Hagan will not have an opportunity of meeting all his friends before the convention meets but he feels confident that they will turn out at the mass meetings and give him their support 0 BANQUET THE BISHOP The last of the series of demonstrations in Bishop Garrlgana honor from his ads vent to the scene

Among Pretty School Attendants r j PAPERS READ AT THE BANQUETQQ- s Nazareth this June was looking her prettiest The abundant rains have pre served her gardens and lawns and the white structure in the midst of encircling green is a handsome sight The new avenue of trees transplanted from the woods contributes to the beauty of the prospect A grotto of the Blessed Virgin planned by one of the Sisters has been erected lately on the front lawn Par as the eye can reach over the eleven hun dred acres the pastoral perspectives are Nazareths own Inside the convent walls the eye continues to enjoy order cleanliness and neatness and the fine and delicate courtesy of the Sisters give added pleasure to a visitors impressions The vital element of the Nazareth Alumnae Is largely the oldest members by whom the younger members are di rected They are noticeable by their black or mourning attire Of Southern extraction they have the beautiful man ners of the wellbred women of the old regime and Nazareth may well consider them her crown jewels Mrs Albert McGoddwin of Franklin was toastmistress at the Alumnae banquet awl arranged also an impromptu enter tainment in the absence of Miss Gertrude McKelvey of

Anna Bradford Miles disguised as a novice and accompanied by a Sister of Charity passed the lines to join her husband In the Southern army s the Sister returning alone in the stagecoach the distance

most venerable member of the Nazareth Alumnae and who was gradu ated about sixty years ago was Mrs Ludwell Alexander who responded to the toast Our Crown Jewels The number of pretty school girls this

1902 l WHO SUPPORT THE STATE The total assessment of the no counties of Kentucky for State tax ation is 598829633 and the tax to be collected this year is 2994 t 148 This shows an increase in assessment of 9672813 over last year and of taxes 165653 and seems Kentucky is doing fairly well But an analysis makes a poor showing outside of six coun tiesJefferson Kenton Fayette Campbell Bourbon and Daviess Thus Jefferson is assessed for 130 878366 to pay in taxes 654391- or about 22 per cent of the whole the other five counties for 106 538876 to pay 53ii596 about 19 per cent These six counties are assessed for 237417242 and taxed 1186987 over 40 per cent of the whole amount for the 110 counties of the State thus leaving less than 60 per cent for the 104x remaining counties to pay Those six counties though having larger population owing to provisions and facilities supplied and sup ported by local taxes do not cost the State anything near 40 per cent of its revenue They pay in t a large surplus As the entire revenue is annually expended it is evident that the 104 counties cost the State more than they pay in the deficit equaling the surplus paid by the six counties If those six counties were withdrawn from the State or failed to pay taxes for a year the deficit would be as tounding Without the revenue from the six counties the 104 coun ties would have to pay a tax rate double the present rate to meet ex pensesThis is a showing for Kentucky not worthy of boast nor indicative of progress or prosperityoutside- of six countiesin the oldest State the first admitted after the forma tion of the Union over a century ago These 104 counties are prim itive away behind nor do they show any ambition to push ahead to develop increase products pro vide facilities or improve on the contrary they oppose every move 0 in that direction not only in their own boundaries and among their own people but of the State at large and of the six most ad vanced productive and prosperous counties that really bear the burden of State expenditures originate and maintain enterprises that keep the State somewhere to the front No move for the development of resources improvement of transpor tation advancement of trade en couragement of manufactures mod ernizing of methods and conditions but It is proposed by one of the six counties and just as surely opposed by the 104 Session after session of the legislature attests this In stead of fostering encouraging and protecting development progress and improvement of the State everything is done to prevent it i or failing to head it off it is ham pered by annoying restrictive llegis- lation or burdened with taxation and fees s The 104 counties are not only not progressive but they are dead set agin all progress and all those tainted with progressiveness The old tumbledown Capitol and dilap idated lend inadequate public build ings at Frankfort fully illustrate the true sentiment and character of the vast majority of the people of the State and the same niggardly indolence is manifest in all their affairs locally and in the legislative proceedings The results or father the lack of results show more I plainly year by year as the sister States continue to iimprove and we ourpoat IifoM k v i 1 grandfathers and slide backward Kentucky needs a stirring up and needs it badly We have the resources and the people with the ambition and industry to develop and turn them into money giving employment increasing trade pro duction wealth and revenue and pushing the State to the front But these enterprising people are in the minority and their effort an uphill struggle against an old fogy iignorant majority vain and boast ful of their indolence and ignor ance poor as a consequence and proud of it and the State is like wise poor comparatively and they glory in that They need educa tion but do not appreciate the fact It will have to be forced upon themor their childrenand this is the first task and a hard one for the progressive element who would pull their Old Kentucky Home on to the high road But it must be done The children of those rustics must be got to school if a compul sory education law is necessary to get them there The fathers will con tinue to oppose it but the children have the inherent right to be saved from the benighted laggardliness and primitive hardships of their fathers and it is the duty of the State for its own best interests to apply the remedy Until the peo ple are educated up to under standing the fallacy of their old notions and the correctness of modern business methods there will be no improvement of con ditions or results WONT HAVE IT Colonial Secretary Chamberlain whose South African policy re sulted so gloriously in the sur render of the Boers has another scheme for the uniting and up building of British trade interests and the closer relations of Great Britain and her colonies The prompt and loyal response of the colonies to the call for troops for South Africa earned them the praise of the Imperial Government and as a mark of further honor the colonies were invited to send their militia to London to participate in the coronation parade and their Premiers to confer with the Ministry on the best policy of maintaining and furthering cordial relations between Great Britain and her colonies to the mutual interests and advantages of the empire throughout the world Chamberlain has been tenderly nursing his scheme meanwhile showering compliments on the Col onial representatives in anticipation of the conference when it is to be submitted to their approval As the Colonial representatives reached England the chief object of the conference was divulged as a feeler It is called preferential trade with the coloniesau arrangement of tariffand other regulations by which the colonies are to discrimi nate against all other countries and buy only English manufactures and are to sell their products only to England Thus to build up a huge combination of British inter ests throughout the world But the Colonial Premiers do not receive it with enthusiasm indeed Canada Newfoundland and Aus tralia do not seem to appreciate it It is stated they will not agree to it They rather insist on more freedom of trade with outside nations than is now accorded them Canada and Newfoundland have endeavored for years to be allowedE to enter into a reciprocity treaty wi It the United Stat sandAustralia only recently protested against the ft4al oft the Crown to allowsmore Hberty to trade with i t fK 1i e y kr fkrl M II o ij other nations The British col onies in the West Indies have a leaning in the same direction The proposition of Mr Chamberlain does not meet their approval they will not accept it and the effect of its presentation is likely to cause them to unite in demanding what they really want and the Govern ment has steadfastly refusedmore freedom in trade and dealings with other nations That the Govern ment will not grant this is certain To do so would soon result in the loss to England of the trade of most of her colonies which she sorely needs now To refuse it will not increase the loyalty or cordiality of the colonies toward Great Britain So with the re jection of Chamberlains scheme the results of the conference with the Colonial Premiers is unlikely to be as the Colonial Secretary expectedWhatever the professed motive for this preferential trade with the colonies may be its real pur pose is manifest and its effect is to call attention to the decadence of Great Britains foreign trade now all but lost Other nations princi pally the United States Germany France Holland and Russia have little need of English products are supplanting English goods in all foreign markets and encroaching upon British markets at home and in the colonies The object of the preferential is to stop this for eign encroachment on the trade of Great Britain and her colonies and insure to Great Britain at least the trade of her colonies But it would bind the colonies to buying and selling only with Great Britain However advantageous and even essential this may be to Great Britain in her present depressed and decreasing trade conditions the colonies seem to prefer to buy where they can get better goods cheaper sell where they can get best prices in short trade where it is most advantageous and profitable- to them Under present commer cial methods rapid communication and transportation and worldwide competition Great Britain is not such a market for most of her colonies and they have long since recognized that fact and sought to have the barriers let down This Great Britain persistently refuses and the colonies on the other hand will not agree to further restrictions on their trade Besides the trade question nearly every Colonial Premier has one or more crows to pick with the Government Canada has the seal fishery Alaskan boundary and other questions with the United States Newfoundland the fisheries and the proposition to force New foundland into the Dominion of Canada Canada Newfoundland and the West Indies islands want reciprocity with the United States Australia still insists on reconsider ation of the refusal to allow full powers to her Ministry over local matters and the South African colonies that remained loyal and withstood the brunt of battle with the Boers want a few evidences of appreciation Allin all Chamberlains Colonial conference is likely to prove a lively and interesting gathering whether its conclusions and results be to the maintenance strengthen ing and glory of the empire or as seems probable disappointing to a greater or lesser degree FAMINE AND PLAQUE A government report issued in London on conditions in India gives the deaths from plague in British India from September 1896 to April 1902 at 852000 and making allowances for unreported deaths calculates that a million deaths have resulted in the five years and a half The report shows that the plague is on the increase alarmingly year by year In Bom bay where there were 17806 deaths in the first three months of 1901 there were 62667 in the same period of this year There is the same porportionate increase in other parts of India except in Punjab where it is greater there being 42 787 in the one month of March as against 15555 in the first three t R cJ months of 1901 This is attributed to the plague which the British Government seems to be doing nothing to check The periodical famine of India has become contin uous and pestilence naturally fol lows famine This is one of the most fertile countries of the world productive of such wealth as to be the richest of Englands possessions and yet its people are dying by thousands of famine and resultant pestilence Anomalous a8 this may appear such is the truth Why then have the people of India not suffi cient to sustain life and avert the horrors of famine and plague Be cause the products of India go to enrich England whose avarice not only takes allt but it is so inhuman as to leave the famine and plague full sway except in the immediate vicinity of cities and stations where the lives of English officials traders and soldiers are endangered There is neither solicitude nor effort on J behalf of the stricken natives With an average of 200000 deaths a year the native population will soon cease from troubling and the British policy of conquestexter mination will have been accom plished Famine and plague are more effective and cost less than armiesIt nearly two months since the volcanic eruptions devastated the islands of

Strube and Tom Garvey reported that it had been decided to give a picnic at Fern Grove on Monday July 21 HINTS ON STYLE Elbow sleeves of bias tucks are finished with a lace frill flowing wide at the back and shaped to a very narrow line on the inside of the arm Changeable blue and gray Louisine silk forms the draped belt The blouse is the usual style of bodice while sometimes there is a little jacket in addition The material lends itself to the charms of hand embroidery with especially good effect and it is applied without limit in the most elaborate designs and combined also with inser tions of linen lace Guipure lace has lost its prestige as a gown material and blossomed out in coats variously finished with cloth or silk bands the finer laces being much more popular for gowns than the heavier ones in combination with insertions motile and edgings the alencon nets make lovely costumes- A new model in blue linen is elabo rately trimmed with white linen passe menterie frogs down either side of the blouse front and either side of the front of the skirt Even buckles are covered with linen for the linen belt finish Embroidered white linen also trims the pique gowns very effectively Hand embroidery fancy stitches of all sorts and applique work of every description are all more andmore 1n evidence as the summer gowns of muslin linen and veiling come to the front It is astonishing how a simple muslin gown can blossom into elegance under the influence of modern treatment The new boas stand at the head simply because their size gveS them prominence and not because they show the greatest variety as the little stock can hold its own in this respect The new boa as sumes the form of the fichu or cape much more than its predecessor which was fluffed out into a full ruffle close about the neck Green has the lead among the colors just at the moment and it is charming in the delicate transparent fabrics made over white or silk and chiffon of the same tint One gown of green muslin has a tucked flounce headed by a row of lace insertion which encircles the skirt five times between the flounce and the tucks around the hips QUIT THE ROAD Bob Mitchell one of the best
