Catholic Societies Thos Walsh Lawyer and Poet Points Out Beneficial- Effects Will Away With Every Trace of Racial or Sectional Feeling PRINCIPLES OF THE ORGANIZATION Asthedate for the national convention of the American Federation of Catholic Societies dralVS near interest increases over the prospective legislation that will be there enacted Within the past few days Secretary Eugene J1 Cooney of the local federation has forwarded blank credentials to the Catholic societies several of whom may send delegates TneJrighta of Columbus have selected two who will cooperate with Drr J W Fowler and his colleague who go AS the representatives of the combined societies The credentials should all be returned to Secretary Matre before July 28 accom panied by the per capita tax For the purpose of making such changes in the constitution as may be deemed most satisfactory to all national bodies the Executive and Advisory Boards of the Federation will meet in Chicago several days before the convention to confer with the supreme officers of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Knights of Columbus Catholic Knights of America Knights of St John Irish Catholic Benev olent Union Young Mens Institute Catholic Truth Society Central Verein Catholic Knights and Ladies of America Western Catholic Union Catholic Benev olent Legion Catholic Mutual Benefit Association Catholic Order of Foresters and others A special call will also be issued by Bishops McFaul and Messmer urging all societies whether affiliated or not to send delegates Among those who have given much thought to this great movement among the Catholics of this country is Thomas Walsh the well known lawyer and poet with whom the representative of the Kentucky Irish American this week had the following interview which will prove interesting to our many readers What do you think of the American Federation of Catholic societies the con vention of which is to be held in Chicago on August 5 G and 7 That is rather a comprehensive ques tion and one to which a reply in full would require an extensive answer In the main however I can say that in my humble judgment it is the best move that has ever been inaugurated in our land for promotion of unity fraternity and good feeling among the Catholic societies of this country It will tend to do away with every trace of racial or sectional 1feeling which may have heretofore ex isted and it will make all the societies take a common interest in the common cause of Catholic affairs educational and Otherwise and likewise take an interest in the welfare of each other In addition thereto it will also tend to bring the Catholic clergy and laity into closer union with each other and this always produces a beneficial effect What in your opinion are the main purposes and objects of the federation- If I understand it rightly the federa tion seeks to protect and promote within its proper sphere the interests of the church at large in this country and to this end it shall aim to use its influence against any legislation local or nationall which maybe attempted inimical to the just rights and welfare of the church or prejudicial to its interests or too sectarian IB character It nay also be possible at time through its proper representatives to secure enlightened legislation OB points involving religious affairs and to oerrect false impreseioaa sad opiakms j r IJ D which prevail concerning them In this connection I can say for instance that where books are introduced into the cur riculum of the public schools which mis represent and falsify our faith its teach ings and its history the duly authorized representative of this body could take notice of an evil of this character and by calling the attention of the proper authorities to it could have such objection able books removed Is the federation in your judgment either covertly or otherwise identified with politics or has it been originated by political promoters who seek thereby to increase their own political significance whereof they could make game and capi tal for their own selfish ends and profit Not at all On the contrary politics either directly or indirectly have no part or parcel in it whatever Its objects are exclusively and entirely fraternal benevolent and religious and have noth ing whatever to do with parties or poll tics Its members and representatives are men of the highest character integ rity ability and standing in the com munities in which they reside many of them being men of national reputation in their respective spheres of action and they have nothing but the good of the Government the church and the State alike at heart Whatever they do shall be done in the open in a reasonable in telligent and peaceful manner and no chicanery nor underhand methods shall be resorted to by them in the accomplish ment of their work Withwhat success and encourage ment has the federation met since its be ginningIt last December in Cincinnati with the State federation of Ohio but since then it has established federations In thirteen States as follows Ohio Kentucky New Jersey Indiana Pennsylvania Vermont Wisconsin Alabama Massachusetts New York Illinois Kan sas and Minnesota all of which have ap pointed delegates to attend the conven tion to be held in Chicago next month These delegates will represent over a million Catholics It has met with de cided encouragement at the hands of many of the most eminent ecclesiastical dignitaries of the country including such men as Bishop Messmer and Bishop Mc Faul who in and out of season are untir ing in their efforts to upbuild it and give it the commanding influence and power which it can easily attain if the Catholic laity of the country and the Catholic societies at large render it proper in fluence and support and unite with it In union there is strength Is an old adage but a true one and applies with especial force to the great good that can be accomplished by the federation pro vided its work is carried on with proper energy ability and perseverance- As a matter of fact do you think the Catholic laity of this country could ren der the cause of religion much actual and practical assistance by taking an active part in its affairs- I most certainly do and in this opin ion I apt firmly supported by the judg ment of eminent clergymen such as Father J M Flemimg O S A of Law rence Mass who ascribes much of the lethargy shown in our religious welfare to the lack of interest manifested by our Catholic laymen He says that if they were so determined and prompted by proper zeal they could render the church incalculable aid by opposing the godless education which is at present breeding infidelity irreliglon and social evils throughout the land These evils like coming events cast their baleful shadows before them and threaten to blight the splendid future of our republic The priest can do much but he can not do everything and his counsel to become effective must be reduced to action by the rank and file of the church militant that is under his guidance and command A General can not overcome the enemy without the assistance of his army but with the combined efforts of bothwon dets can be accomplished and victory securedSince the foregoing was written we learn that Messrs Frank Menne and Walter P Lincoln have been selected to represent the Louisville Council of the Knights of Columbus Edward Smith will be Mackia Councils delegate and Satolll Council has decided to send John J Crotty They are all men education and ability sad will give Louisville a splendid representation f r SONS OF ERIN National Convention of Hiber nians at Denver Greatest In History Pomp and Ceremony Markedl the Proceedings of thQ Opening Day Adjourns as Mark of Respect t Archbishop Feehan Na tional Chaplain KEENAN AND BUTLER ARE PRO1INEN- Pomp and ceremony marked the open ing of the national convention of th Ancient Order of Hibernians at Denver e last Tuesday morning The programme for the day was somewhat abridged be cause of the unexpected death in Chicago of Archbishop Feehan who was National Chaplain of the order Colliseum Hall where the convention was held beauti fully decorated with flags and flowers was the scene of bustling activity from an early hour in the morning with many delegates crowding in some to greet old friends others to shake again the hand of newer acquaintances and still others seeking a chance to ask the hardworked reception committee some of the thou sand and one questions of the visitors Grand Marshal Patrick Murray was busy attending to the wants of the 600 dele gates already arrived With bobbing plumes shining high hats gorgeous regalia and beaming smiles the procession of the Ancient Order of Hibernians started promptly at 10 oclock for the Sacred Heart church where pontifical high mass was to be celebrated In their honor There all was sunshine and brightness with signs of welcome everywhere Chancel and nave were banked with flowers while high up on the altar blazed the Sacredcandles with aglow of spiritual light The church was soon crowded with a silent expectant throng who watched the fluttering folds of Old Glory and the flags of green side by side in the middle aisle near the altar rail Then suddenly the almost oppressive silence was broken by resonant pealing of the organ as Bishop Matz and his priests resplendent in pur ple slid gold marched solemnly in and took their places before the altar With much pomp and ceremony the Bishop was escorted to a scarlet canopied throne and crowned with cap and mitre An impressive Pontifical high mass followed in which Bishop Matz was assisted by Vicar General Robinson Chancellor Phil lips and Father Edward Barry The mass over Bishop Matz delivered an address of welcome to the visiting Hibernians dwelling with some emphasis upon the stand the order had taken in regard to Christian Catholic education In fact be said the Hibernians bad done more for thatcause than any other body of men in the country and he was proud to have the privilege of officially welcom ing them to Denver in the name of the Catholic church Then Father Barry ascended the pulpit and began his sermonYou have come living up to your motto in friendship unity and Christian charitysaid the Rev Father E J BarryS1 by way of prefacing his ser monIII need hardly add to the wel

You are members of a great organization that is both Catholic and Irish and the church expects much of you The warfare of the church of Christ and the world will go on until the end of time but we must combat it with the intelligence loyalty and honesty of organizations like yours We must face and meet these questions The church needs our undivided loyalty The convention had many important matters referred to committees which could not be reported on before Thursday when considerable time was taken up BishopConatyconvention and reports are that his ex planation gave entire satisfaction

EXPRESSIONS OF PRAISE AND GRIEF Last week the Kentucky press sadly announced the death of the noble Sam Bryant This week a gloom hangs over our community by the chronicling of the death of another greathearted and hon orable Christian manMarcus Doer hoefer Many knew that he was very sick but none surmised that his death was near Ills good constitution and brave heart caused all his friends to feel that he would soon be up and about again but the grim reaper was watching guard unseen and unsuspected up to a week ago when his condition was felt to be dangerous Now that he has crossed to the other side the deep friendship in spired by this most natural and generous man has given rise to expressions of praise and admiration for his royal good nature and grief at his early taking away One of a noble band of five brothers his rise to affluence was a mark of his ability Thoughtful and courteous toward his employes his distinctive trait made him loved by all who worked for him Genial and clever his associates welcomed him among them far seeing and provident his family was uppermost in his mind but not to the exclusion of either relatives or friends The ties of sparkling hoefer family

Street fiTRADESI tCOUNCIL i LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY JULY 19 1902 APPEALED TO THE PUBLIC An attorney who appeals from the court to the public through cards in the newspapers neither adds to his reputation as a lawyer nor strengthens his case In ja morning daily was published a card from the attorney for a young girl recently sent to the Convent of the Good Shepherd Twentythird and Bank streets Itwas really intended as an appeal to the anti Catholic public against the authorities who ordered the girl restrained and the f decision of County Judge Gregory throwing him and his case out of publishedndoes not reveal a knowledge of court procedure interpretation or application of law character or r purpose of Catholic institutions If his card is a reflex of his petition filed in the County Court that aside from improper procedure and jurisdiction fully justified Judge Gregorys summary dismissal of the motion and petition without hearing argument and evidence But even if the attorneys quota tions of law and allegations in the case are correct Judge Gregorys summary ruling declining to in any way interfere with and set aside a judgment of the City Court was proper as everyone at all ac quainted with court procedure and jurisdiction is aware The attorneys contention is that the law governing the appointment of guardians can be applied by a County Judge to allow one placed in custody of the Board of Childrens Guardians and confined under order of criminal Judge to select a guard ian and secure release thus nullifying the judgment and setting at naught the jurisdiction of the criminal Judge and the Board of Guard iansHe also gives an incorrect impres sion in his statement of the case The girl was neither accused nor con victed of crime If so the pro cedure would have been as usual in criminal cases and she would not be sent to the convent at Twentythird and Bank streets as it does not admit criminals nor are fallen women incarcerated there They girl beitig of tender years was found by Agent Hild of the Humane Society associating with and in charge of improper persons a fact conceded by the attorney and on his complaint to the Judge pro tern of the City Court the child was taken into custody under order of the regular Judge who in the meantime resumed his duties the case was referred to the Board of Childrens Guardians which ordered her sent to the insti tution at Twentythird and Bank streetsto the Convent of the Good Shepherd not to a reform atory asylum for fallen women and girls This was the procedure Nothing irregular nor unusual about it It is in conformity with the law made and provided in such cases and enforced by the officers authorized by law But there wasIIno petition filed no charges made no notice given her custodian no trial no session of court the Judge was not on the bench says the attorney though he admits he was present and protested and questioned the right of the judge to sit in the case and order the girls arrest all of which the Judge overruled All these objections urjtd re l attorney in this case wlSSd y to all cases In which children relent to reformatories and unfort unately there are many of them for theaame course is usually fol- lowcdin til publicit ybeing avoided r O- Jo Q Ra to shield the child and family from a blot on their reputation to mar their future in life If the attor neys contention that such proceed ings are illegal and void and those so confined should be released our reformatories houses of refuge and the like would be emptied of their inmates and be only useful here after as penal institutionsno longer reformatories to save the wayward and unprotected from crime but simply prisons to pun ish those guilty of crime The courts however in this State and indeed throughout Christendom do not agree with this attorneys ideas of law and hence there is a mode of procedure in reform cases distinctly different from criminal cases and laws gov erning wards and reformatories tinctly different from those govern ing criminals and penal institu tionsa distinction and difference which this attorney does not seem to understand or will not concede especially where a convent is in volved the character and purpose of which he likewise misunder standsBut after blundering as to the law and procedure publicly de nouncing the agent of the Humane Society Judge of the City Court the Board of Childrens Guardians County Judge Gregory slurring the Sisters of the Good Shepherd and their institutions for reforming and saving the unfortunate and publishing to the world the dis graceful associations of his juvenile client this attorney seems to have concluded to consent to the proper course Parties agreed to adopt the child Their character being satisfactorily vouched for to the childs custodian the Board of Childrens Guardiansnot the Sisters of the Good Shepherdthe President of the Board agent of the Humane Society and the childs attorney went before Judge Miller on Wednesday where the necessary papers were signed legal formal ities complied with and the child turned over to her adopted parents This could easily have been done as is frequently the case without publicity and scandal had her attor ney pursued the proper course at the outset BALFOUR IS PREMIER Lord Salisbury surprised the British public by resigning the Premiership last Saturday which was announced with the Kings selection of Mr Balfour as Premier to form a Ministry Salisburys resignation was expected but not so soon Who will constitute the new Ministry what will be the changes if any in the Government policy and the effect upon the affairs of the empire are mere surmises thus far That Chamber lain and his friends are disap pointed as well as surprised is illy concealed though it is claimed that he and Balfour came to an under standing and the Chamberlain fac ftibji will not oppose the new Min istry The prompt resignation of Sir Michael HicksBeach Chamber lains rival gives color to this view of the situation Mr Balfour in his utterances since accepting the position is guarded and gives no clew as to whether there will be material changes in the personel or policy of the Ministry He seems to be feeling his way with the de sire to harmonize and unite his iparty and the friends of the Gov ernment When young girlseven twins of a widowed motherroam the streets tna large city with men till too late to go home and then J y- 4J spend the night at a strange lodg ing house to which the men take them where they are found and taken in charge by the police and when the widowed mother can not or will not prevent such roaming by her twin daughters indeed does not consider such conduct as wayward it strikes us that it is time for the proper authorities to deprive even a widowed mother of the con trol of her twin daughters and place them somewhere that their liberty may be restrained for their own future wellbeing With the foregoing facts admitted the order of a Judge sending those girls to an institution despite the protest and entreaty of the widowed mother if not commended at least should not be condemned pending an appeal by the widowed mother in habeas corpus proceedings had the Judge not ordered the girls immured in a convent Horrors I And this in a free country and the enlight enedTwentieth century Mr Dillon got the best of the debate with Secretary Wyndham on Irish conditions in the House of Commons Backed by records and official reports of the absence of crime in Ireland Dillon held Wyndham to task and asked why the Crimes Act and coercion were being enforced people arrested and jailed the constabulary patrolling the highways menacing the peace in districts where the court records show there has been no crime for months Mr Wyndhams reply was evasive indicating he was un prepared for such direct queries and without attempting denial of Dillons charges against the con stabulary acts he pleaded time promising to give the matter his serious consideration The bright dream of English iron and steel manufacturers of a harvest after peace in South Africa is obscured by a cloud Their advance agent reports that agents of American firms have already covered the field secured contracts for large buildings at prices that stagger the English iron masters and worse than all guarantee de livery on the spot and erection

press surprise at the tardiness of the English firms who are allow ing the Americans to get all of it worth having Never has a more deplorable tragedy occurred in Louisville than that in which Robert Murphy lost his life at the hands of John Leis ter bringing grief and shame to two families and many relatives and friends The unfortunate victim was a popular young man ex emplary in his habits while his slayer was regarded as inoffensive by those who knew him best This lamentable affair should prove a warning to young men who should never carry deadly weapons or drink to excess lest they too should cause shame to their relatives and sorrow to their friends The Cincinnati Traction Com pany a combination controlling all street car lines in that city is wag ing war on labor unions by

guest of his brother William Kelly with the Louisville City Railway Company Mr Kelly is a firstclass engineer and proposes to make Louisville his future home Speak ing of the old country he declared the war taxes imposed on Ireland as awful high and iniquitous While there is plenty of work and a promise of high wages the exorbitant rents for land in the rural districts make it impossible for the tenants to realize adequate returns from their holdings The United Irish League he said was daily becoming stronger and the people are firm in the belief that only through it and the Nationalist party can Ireland secure any laws containing any semblance of justice Before departing he visited the Cork Exposition where the exhibits of Irish workmanship and industry arc a great surprise to foreign visitors OASTOLDIS PICNIC Next Saturday July 26 a picnic will be given for the benefit of St Clares church Colesburg at Beauty Hickory Grove near Booths Station on the L N thirtytwo miles from this

Messrs A B French B J Johnsonn and I i in II F L Johnson arrangements have been made for a special train to take all who wish to take advantage of this opportunity for a day of real pleasure in the

Rosenhams Fourth and Jefferson JUST AS WE SAID Frank Cunningham Succeed- to a Higher Railway Position When Frank G Cunningham left Louisville to accept a higher position with the Air Line railroad at St Louis and shortly afterward was made City Passenger Agent for the Louisville Nashville there the Kentucky Irish American then predicted that it would not be long before he went still higher Mr Cunninghams many Kentucky friends will be pleased to learn that the prediction has come true From a trust worthy source we learn that he has been successful in landing the responsible and desirable position of Western Passenger Agent for the Louisville Henderson St Louis railway succeeding Mr J E Cox who recently resigned The ap pointment becomes effective August 1 and the general office in this city will soon issue a circular giving this an nouncementMr previous positions were but stepping stones to this his first though by no means last official position in the railway world He will have en tire jurisdiction and charge of all the passenger business of the company in St Louis and throughout the West He will also have much occasion to travel and visit the various offices throughout its immense territory Few young men have a brighter future before them than Mr Cunningham and the L H St L made no mistake in securing him for the position That will hereafter be the road iris friends will seek when visiting the great St Louis Exposition HOLY TRINITY Will Likely Celebrate Its Golden Jubilee Anniversary In October Father John B Kelly rector of Holy Trinity church New Albany although he has done more to build up his congregation than any of his predecessors takes none of the credit for himself His e a modest man who prefers to do his work quietly and without any ostenta tion Referring to the golden jubilee which will occur in October Father Kelly last Sunday pleasantly referred to the article in the Kentucky Irish Ameri can and said to his congregation that iif it was desired to celebrate the occasion he would insist that it be a congregational affair He would give his hearty cooperation to any movement inaugurated by his parishioners to celebrate the event but would not place himself at the head of the movement Although he did not say so it is evident that Father Kelly does not wish to place himself Iin the position of celebrating an event in which he would naturally be made prom inert It is likely that the trustees and other leading members of the congrega tion will take the matter up at an early date and arrange for the celebration It is considered no more than right that the fiftieth anniversary of the building of the largest Catholic church in South ern Indiana be celebrated in some fitting way and Father Kellys assistant Father Kenny and his trustees will be equal to the occasion All that was said complimentary of Father Kelly in this paper on July 5 iis very pleasing to the members of his con gregation but had Father Kelly his own way about such things he would have nothing said as he takes little credit to himself for his work- SEASONS BANNER EUCHRE The principal feature of the Cathedral outing next Wednesday afternoon and evening

remains of the Very Rev Felix de Andries first Vicar General of the St Louis diocese which is the last act in the local proceeding of the canonization of Father de Andries has been postponedl in obedience to a letter received from Rome It was the intention when the court of inquiry into the life of Father de Andries held its last regular meeting to have the exhumation take place last Sunday The letter was sent by the Promoter General at Rome to the Very Rev F V Nugent C M President of Kenrick Seminary who has charge of the arrange regardedsto have the exhumation made and pre pare a report before the departure of Father Nugent for Rome in the early part of July Father Nugent stated that he expected the exhumation to be made after his return from Rome next fall He will take with him to Rome the report of the proceedings of the court of inquiry which is the first step in the canonizationThe proceeding which includes the exhumation is called the non cultus process It is expected that the new body will be composed of the same priests who composed the court of inquiry The purpose of the exhumation is to complete the chain of evidence in regard to all particulars obtainable of Father de Andries dead as well as alive It is stated that cases are on record of persons who were known to have lived holy lives being exhumed many years after death and the body found in a perfect state of preservation This is not necessary however for canonization nor would it without other circumstances be sufficient It is taken for what it is regarded to be worth The sessions of the court of inquiry were begun last July and the taking of testimony was finished a few weeks ago In this time about seventy witnesses were examined EXCITED COMMONS Serious Charges Against One of Wyndhams Irish Hirelings Sergt Sheridan lately of the Irish Constabulary but now living in Boston was the subject of the most exciting de bate of the session In the House of Commons Thursday night cables the Worlds London correspondent The Irish Na tionalists made in their speeches these chargesThat when stationed in County Clare some years ago Sheridan conspiring with several of his subordinate constables committed a series of agrarian crimes for which they arrested and convicted by perjured testimony innocent men in that locality connected with the Irish Nation alist organization That those convictions were obtained through juries from which every Catholic and Nationalist was excluded by the Government prosecuting lawyers That in one case alone Sheridan got four men convicted of crimes it has since been absolutely proved he committed himselfThat those four men were sentenced to three years penal servitude and one actually died in prison of a broken heart That about a year ago John Dillon got information which enabled him to compel Irish Secretary Wyndham to Inquire into the charges against Sheridan Wyndham promising that iif the charges were found to be true full punishment should be meted out to all concerned That Wyndhams inquiry fully established the guilt of Sheridan and his police accomplices but Sheridan threat ened that if the Government dared to punish him he would expose superiors who had connived at his deeds in order to create a prejudice against the Irish Nationalist organizations That therefore Sheridan was not only allowed to leave the country but got a handsome contribution from the Government Secret Service Fund to start him on a fresh career in the United StatesThat was the case made out against the Government of Ireland by the Irish party and every allegation except that respect ing the Secret Service money was ad mitted by Wyndham and his Attorney General The Irish party intends to re new the subject later pressing for a pub lic inquiry into the whole system of subsidized police and criminality in Ireland BUYS BIO LOTS During the past few weeks the com mission men were several times surprised at the large purchases made by Pat Howard the successful and enterprising young grocer at Twelfth and Kentucky streets It was only last year that Mr Howard engaged in the grocery trade but by his gentlemanly demeanor and

Bravery During Epidemic That Prevailed in the South FOUNDER OF THE CATHOLIC KNIGHTS The Most Rev Patrick A Feehan Archbishop of Chicago for the past twentytwo years died at the Archiepiscopal Palace in Chicago last Saturday afternoon For more than a year the Archbishop has been in delicate health Sometime ago for the purpose of relieving him of some of the onerous duties of his exalted office Father J P Muldoon was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Chicago This position is hot in the line of succession and it does not follow that Bishop JVIuldoon will succeed him It iis possible that the Right Rev John Lan caster Spalding formerly of Louisville and now Bishop of the Diocese of Peoria may succeed to the place No one Is better qualified anti it seems this dis tinguished Kentuckian will be recommended by many eminent prelates Archbishop Feehan was a man who cared little for notoriety Notoriety though is perhaps not quite the word that should be used to express the kind of prominence he avoided He did not seem to care even for fame It mattered nothing at all to him whether his name became a household word or not He devoted himself to the diocese to which his consecration as Archbishop had bound him With public questions beyond the interests of his diocese be seldom med died Publicity was for others The affairs of the church as found in Chicago were for him Although said to be a soundscholar he never wrote on church history like Cardinal Gibbons of Balti more Although an enthusiastic and energetic patron of schools he never wrote on education like Bishop Spalding of Peoria Although a man to whom it was given to help in the bringing of many diverse nationalities into a united American life he never wrote and spoke on the American church like Archbishop Ireland of St Panl Although a man of great activity his unobtrusive manner of work brought him less general recogni tion than was the lot of Archbishop Cor rigan of New York For over fortysix years Patrick A Feehan had labored in the West for the cause of religion as priest Bishop and Archbishop He was born in the County Tipperary Ireland in 1829 He had been in America since 1852 Bishop Feehan came of old Catholic stock His mother was possessed of those exalted virtues which afterward appeared in her distinguished son On her advice at the age of sixteen years he was sent to the College of Castlenock having already shown a desire to enter the priesthood Afterward he was sent to St Patricks College Maynooth He came to America before he was ordainedand went to the diocese of St Louis where he received holy orders at the hands of that distinguished pioneer of Western Catholicity Archbishop Ken rick He was one of his most faithful priests for many years and was much be loved by him The fiftieth anniversary of his ordination would have been cele brated on November 1 next and was looked forward to by Catholics all over the United States In 1865 Father Feeban was made Bishop of Nashville Tenn In Septem ber 1880 be was made Archbishop of Chicago succeeding Bishop Foley Bishop Feehans administration of the affairs of the Diocese of Nashville showed that he was a man of great capacity He filled the duties of the ecclesiastic of the legislator and of the priest He was a missionary the spirit but showed him self equal to great physical emergencies When he arrived at his diocese in Ten nessee he found but three secular priests in the State and the whole country laid waste by the civil war The first years were years of great labor but he succeeded in building up the church In August I860 when be had been there but a year the cholera made its appear ance in Nashville During its ravages Bishop Feeban labored unceasingly to console the sick and dying At the close of the epidemic he purchased a home and established a community of the Sisters ofMercyIt take columns to recount the work of the great Archbishop Nash ville In 1877 and 1878 when the yellow fever visited Mempsapd ministers of otherdenomlnoUons hesitated the priests under Bishop Feehan remained Twentythree of them fell martyrs to their faithfulness Bishop Feeban while at Nashville bad a large part in estab lishing the Catholic Knights of America now the strongest life insurance organiza tion in this country This will forever be a monument to his memory He foresaw the great benefits of such an organization and it was by his direction thatIt was started When on the death of Archbishop Foley Bishop Feebaa was named as his successor the announcement was hailed with joy by his friends and he was received iti Chicago with great demoeetra tiohs He came to take charge of eighteen ceuettes in northern Illinois There were 106 churehee with 180 priests la charge and in Chicago the losses sttttaiBed in the greet Ire ef 1871 were still evkUat The Archbishop In spiredtlie people pithi rtaew dsalaw1 within a little mow Was scoce of yaars I i over forty churches had been built and- over 30000 Catholic children were educated in the parochial schools Under his administration theuch diocese of Chicago attained the reputa ion of being one of the richest in the United States Eleemosynary institu tlonsrecelvedattentipn Homes forth aged hospitals for the sick houses olf providence for young women orphan homes and foundling asylums all attesR to the care of the Archbishop to meet the needs of the city His encouragement of a school for deaf mutes bisdirectiot of the establishment of the ChiCago industrial school for girls and his dona tions to St Marys training school for boys at Feehanville are mentioned among his works He built the Cathedral at Chicago and the archiepiscopa I residenceWhen in his prime Archbishop Feehat was a fine specimen of physical manhood standing six feet three inches and showing in his face a high degree of intellectuality mingled with kindness and firmness He was retiring and unassuming in his manner The Archbishop participated in all the great councils of the church both in thiss country and in Rome during the pastt quarter century In his younger days hi was a man of great eloquence and attracted great crowds wherever he went Two of the Archbishops uncles were parish priests in Ireland One of his bisters has long been superior of th order of Charity of La Salle His family still lives in the little spot In Tipperary where Patrick A Feeban was born The funeral of Archbishop Feehao n took place from the Cathedral of theo Holy Name on Thursday and was an im pressive spectacle Nearly a thousandI priests and religious of all the orders at tended The sermon was delivered by the Most Rev Patrick J Ryan of Phila delphiaArchbishop Feehan had property in his name belonging to the Archdiocese val ued at 54000000 His private fortune was small CATHEDRAL Extensive Preparations MadeI by Ladles For Annual Outing I bYIthenone have the good women in charge ha such a number of elegant things to dispose of as they will have on next Wednesday at Riverview Park The merchants have been singularly goner ous many of them sending in donations without any solicitation whatever A handsome carved chair upholstered iin velvet was sent to the Misses Finn this past week by1 Rhodes Burford Sd Raffo who always does the right thing by everybody also presented the same energetic young women with a hand some rpcking chair for the benefit of the outing A very fine chair was sent to Mrs Mary Burke from Fred W Keisker for which they were very grateful Mr Spalding Coleman has donated twentyfive bushels of coal W H McKnight a beautiful silk fire screen Gathof Bros a costly vase a jug of the best McKenna whiskey from Henry Bosquet and so the list runs increasing each week in length as the different ladies Mrs Dave Welch Mrs Larry Gatto Mrs Smith Mrs Burke Miss Kate Walsh the Misses Finn Miss Hannah Nagle and other energetic piousI women of the parish are able to signify their wishes to the exceedingly clever men who comprise our Louisville firms Mr Dillon Mapother sent a pingpong set to Miss Annie Finn for her wheel of fortune Smith McHugh New York store Kaufman Straus all have been kind and thoughtful to these ladies who every year do so much for the suc cess of church affairs Their exemplar Mrs Smith and her friend Miss Walsh always take leading parts in the work of organizing and perfecting such laborious undertakings Mrs David Welch and Mrs Larry Gatto two tireless workers have come to the front in late years and are helping fu good fashion the veterans who have worked in the bazar and picnic vineyard for the past twentyfive years In union there is strength and the Cathedral women are noted for forgetting their individuality for the common good The outing will be for the parochial school and every one knows that this school is in need ot all it can get In stead of being one of the best and most largely attended in the city a microscope is necessary to find its attendance No better teacher can be found and this is said advisedly than the pious and thor ough Mother Columbia but when her efforts are hampered for want of supplies and her force is limited very little head way can be made A church without a prosperous school is sadly handicapped and the Cathedral school can regain its oldtime prestige ouly by the people of the city being interested in it With this intention the mothers of the parish are doing all in their power to aid the outing that it may be successful and bring in the necessary shekels for the upbuilding of the school MUSICALI RECITAL The musical recital to be

Out NewnImpetusI Members Will Have Until the August Meeting to Make Settlements ALL BILLS WERE ORDERED PAID The article in last weeks Kentucky Irish American and the circular letter of Secretary Walsh had the effect of bringing out an unusually large attendance at Thursday nights meeting of the Irish American Society Men were there for the first time in months which showed that much interest was yet felt in thee organization President Flynn occupied the chair and presided with his usual dignity and impartiality After the transaction of the usual routine business the question of importance the future of the Irish American Society Vas brought forward as a special order From some unaccountable cause the meetings have been poorly attended and there was a lack of interest that would only have bad effect if continued The names of many men were being carried on the rolls who were in arrears which was unjust to those who were prompt and it was with a view to putting an end to this state of affairs that the resolution to reorganize had been introduced Messrs Thomas Cleary Joseph Byrue Denny Heffernap W M Murphy and others in spirited talks advocated vigorous action and the establishment of a substantial death benefit on the mutual insurance plan Thomas Walsh the Financial Secre tary pointed out the necessity and de clared great results would follow reorgan ization lIe also favored another elec reorganizationdstrain and the resolution to effect a reorganization was carried bya unani mous vote All bills were ordered paid and then President Flynn suggested the appoint ment of a committee to outline a plan of procedure for the new organization pleading for a friendly and brotherly feeling among the members His talk was fearless and spirited and that por tion urging measures that would bring IrianAmericans closer together was warmly applauded Thomas Cleary favored laws that would compel the organization to look after the political as well as other interests of members but action was not taken Capt Mike bawler one of the founders of the society suggested the selection of temporary officers with the result that the present incumbents will continue to officiate until the reorganization plans are acted upon and an election takes placeUpon motion the whole matter was re ferred to a committee of seven with in structions to draft laws for the govern ment of the body and outline its plan and policy The Chair named Messrs Thomas Walsh Joe Byrne Denny Heffer nan Thomas Cleary William Lawler Capt Mike Lawler and W lt Murphy as the committee spitthey promised an Interesting report at the next meeting The proceedings were friendly through out and it is hoped that the results of the new movement will prove satisfac tory The men who have this reorganiza tion in baud have had experience and it is believed they will put the Irish Ameri can Society on the road to success and a large membershipFRANKFORT Improvements on Church of Good Shephord Near Ing Completion

Miles Far From Civilized Man SelfDenial Hardship Revolutions and Difficulty of Travel SEARCH FOR A FELLOWPRIEST I Special IrisAmerican the Kentucky ST ANDREWS ISIAND COLUMBIA June 13Today the patron feast of our little chapel St Anthony of Padua lias been celebrated in this island for the first time The service has been well attended by the natives The young peo ple especially show quite an interest in the instructions I have been giving since the chapel has been opened and about fifty grown people of which there are twenty young men have already ex pressed their intention of taking regular instructions in the catechism I am thinking of getting up a reading circle among them and any Catholic papers or books sent to the above address would be an act of charity by the readers of the Kentucky Irish American I have two little boys who have already learned to serve my mass- Recently I made a trip to the coast in order to go to confession having not seen- a priest since I arrived in this island last October My first landing place was Bluefields Nicaragua but I found to my great regret that not only the Catholic church of that place but also at the two nearest towns Baina sixty miles inland and Creyton were without a priest In both these places the people begged me to remain with them which of course I could not do The city officials in Blue fields suspected me of being a political spy sent by Colombia so they cited me before the Chief of Police where J was examinedwith all kinds of silly questions which I had to answer and the Chiefs Secretary wrote it all down and I was asked to sign the document which appeared to me most ridiculous The Nica ragua Government is not on friendly terms with the Conservative Government- of Colombia but takes the part of the liberals hence their suspicion about a priest coming from Colombia to which St Andrews Island belongs Having found no priest on the Nica raguan coast I took a sailing vessel to Bocas del Toro in Colombia and arrived there in three days about noon on Pentecost Sunday Hearing from the captain early in the morning that we would not land before noon I celebrated mass on hoard of the vessel After landing I went to the Catholic church but was told tint the pastou Rev N Rohden had fled to the States at the time the Liberals took possession of the place after the fight with the Conservatives April 17 Luck- Ily however I found a Jesuit father here who acted as army chaplain for the Con servatives I had to remain a week till a boat was going to St Andrews Island during which time I enjoyed the com pany of this kind father who occupied the Sisters convent they also having re turned to their mother house in New Orleans on account of the revolution In the fight on April 17 the church and convent had been damaged but the Liberals were prevented by their General from entering and robbing the church During my stay at Bocas del Toro I heard nothing but praise of the zealous missionary Rev P Volk predecessor of the present pastor who I hear isatpres ent in Kentucky collecting for the new church he is building in David On the day I left a steamer from Colon brought additional Government troops and a battle was expected in a few days The Liberals after being driven out of ocas del Toro located at Chiriqui at no great distance from the town A few weeks later news reached us here that the Liberals withdrew into the mountains toward David My trip back to St Andrews Island reminded me a good deal of my first trip from Limon Porto Rico That trip took fourteen days this one ten days Both times we had contrary or no wind This time however the vessel being a large one we had at least something to e tIh- ad two fellow passeugers one an Atner tcan the other a German ou my trip back to St Andrews Mao on hiattrip w- u 1 0 we one night had a terrible thunderstorm Lightning struck the sea with ia deafening thunder clap only about fifty feet from our vessel and the gigantic wave caused by it threw the vessel high up I called on St Andrew thepatron- of the sea farers and it was found that no damage had been done to the vessel nor anybody on it We finally reached St Andrews on June 5 just in time to open the novena which I had in view as preparations for the approaching feast of the patron of our chapel St Anthony June 13 t FATHBRAlBKRT STROHBKIB RECENT DEATHS The many friends and
