The Ancient Order in Kentucky is now in good shape financially Active leaders are in charge of the work and they have been authorized to put organ izers in the field to build up the organ ization in

train they could not wait for the banquet These gentlemen were escorted to the American Restaurant where an elegant supper had been pre pared for them- LADIES AUXILIARY To Bo Organized Under tho Ancient Order of Hibernians Great interest is being manifested in the approaching organization of a Ladies Auxiliary to the Ancient Order of Hiber nians Prominent IrishAmerican maids and matrons all over the city have signi fied their intention of joining at the initial meeting which will be held at Hibernian Hall on the afternoon of Sun day September 28 Some years ago the Ladies Auxiliary in Louisville was in a flourishing condition but for some rea son interest was allowed to grow lax and the society gave up the ghost Now however the movement is on foot to organize the society anew New and energetic officers will be chosen and the meetings will be made interesting from a business and social standpoint It is believed that every member of the Ancient Order can furnish at least one member to the Ladies Auxiliary If he has neither wife sister nor daughter he may have a sweetheart who is interested in Irish affairs In every city in the East the Ladies Auxiliary is an important adjunct to the A O II and the latter body never has an entertainment State or county meeting that the members of the Ladies Auxiliary are not in evidence There is no reason why the Irish women of Kentucky should be behind their sis ters of the Eastern States in lending the men a hand in carrying out the good work proposed by both societies The agmembership of 400 at least 4 PROPERTY DAMAGED

Kentucky in this city was well at tended transacted business of importance the reports showing prosperity and growth The visitors were entertained and made to feel at home in a way peculiar to Louisville Irishmen that gives one a feel ing of wanting to stay always The results of the meeting are gratifying f toall Irishmen devoted to God and country the objects of the thepfuture of all true Irishmen Not that we would asperse Irishmen not members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians but because the A O H besides its benevolent features looks after urges and keeps alive devotion to religion and love of country and is ever zealous in promoting and defending both In this country less perhaps than other foreign lands but yet to a degree the Irish people are still subjected to discrimination hardship prejudice ridicule be sides the usual ills and misfortunes of humanity To them the A O H is a beacon light to guide their adway versity a defense in time of peril And to the slanders and jeers that would besmirch Ireland and her children the A O H by protest and rebuff based on truth has vindicated the Irish name and shown the nobility of Irish char acter and glories of Irish history till it is no longer fashionable nor even funny to burlesque and slur IrishAnd the Catholic Irishman a stranger in a strange land without home or friends in the mine on the railroad in the wilds away from church and pastor as well as subjected to the temptations of our cities the A O H which he learned to revere in Ireland has saved him not only from human ills and sufferings but held him to the faith as well While there are various benevo lent societies and patriotic organi zations from whose credit we would not detract one whit the A O H is distinctively a Catholic Irish organization that has perma nently kept alive and battled for alone or jointly with others the Church and Irish nationality As emergency arises other national organizations are formed accom plash or fail in their purpose and pass away the A O H ever aiding all such moves remains as the reserve guard to maintain and fur ther the work of God and country uphold the faith and defend their people Give credit where it is due and the A O H deserves the grateful recognition of alt Irishmen for what has been done in their behalfAs the pioneers of the order here pass to their reward their places are taken by the younger most of them natives of this country but none the less zealous in devotion to the church and the land of their fathers Thus through the A O H is the faith and patriotism of the Irish perpetuated in all climes and generations the younger blood giving new life and energy to con tinue and extend the work of bene ficence religion and nationality Throughout the world though the Irish people are exiled the Irish character is distinctively manifest J in all classes and conditions of life devotion to faith and love of coun tryi To uphold defend and farther these and aid the sick and bury the dead are the objects and duties of theO H How well and fnitlifqlly the order has done this r3- D t4w the past years attest and such vs their vindication and incentive fo renewed courage and activity in s commendable and praiseworthy ia I cause PAINED TO SEE Some time ago there were various rumors regarding the negotiation- between the United States and the Vatican concerning the Philippines One of these rumors stated that President Roosevelt had asked or would ask the Pope to appoint Archbishop Ireland as Apostolic Delegate to the Philippines to ar range the settlement of the church matters there in favor of the United States in return for which the Archbishop would be created a Cardinaland thus be eligible as the American candidate for Pope on the death of Leo XIII Only ignorant and thoughtless persons paid any attention to such a rumor It was so absurd on its face Leav ing aside the stultification of Arch bishop Ireland President Roosevelt and Pope Leo which such a scheme would imply it would be impossible of success Appoint ments are not arbitrarily made by the Pope or any other one indi vidual in the Catholic church there is no such thing as candidates electioneering or wirepulling to attain them as in politics a fact which politicians and antiCatho lics even some ministers it seems can not understand Again were President Roosevelt so forgetful of the proprieties as to make such a request he would have met rebuff from theVatican as well as from his Cabinet And if Archbishop Ire land were a party to any such scheming he would most certainly hear from Rome and it would not be a Cardinals hat he would get But the Wisconsin Methodist Conference seems to attach enough importance to the rumor to address to President Roosevelt a letter signed by their presiding Bishop expressing their pain at seeing such a rumor in the press but strongly doubt the correctness for it does not seem possible that the President of the United States could thus violate the spirit of the constitution of the United States which requires the complete separa tion of church and State and hope to see it authoritatively denied Which would indicate that the members of the conference are no better lawyers than students of Catholic church ecclesiastical law and practice President Roosevelt doubtless can teach them something about constitutional law and the Pope and Bishop Ireland might enlighten them on the latter If President Roosevelt did as charged it would be a very wide stretch of imagination to make his act union of church and State in violation of the constitution It could be only an act improper and outside his duty or right and the offense would not be against United States law but an affront to the Vatican by seeking to intrude his wishes into the affairs of the church We hope though we doubt it that President Roosevelt will answer the letter Such communications usually find their way to the waste basket the Presidents time being devoted to matters of some importance It may be true that President Roosevelt has expressed his gratifi cation at the report that another Cardinal will be named for the United States even Archbishop Ireland And if so he only showed that he appreciated the honor con erred upon the country by the Vatican And he would be a poor f 0sa President who Would not approve any mark of honor to his people or even one of them QUITE A COMPLIMENT The Kentucky Irish American was indorsed last Sunday by the State convention of the Ancient Order of Hibernians as the organ of the order in Kentucky The compliment was unexpected and therefore doubly appreciated The Kentucky Irish American has sought to be since its establisment the organ of all Irish Americans of the State It has sought to play no favorites and it expects to play thernews of all the IrishAmericat societies all the time The Ancient Order of Hibernians is a grand in stitution and whatever it does iit papersaccomplishedssomething when the State convention of the Ancient Order indorses his work in such unqualified terms May the Ancient Order live long and prosper is the wish of the editor who will strive in the future as he has in the past to merit the confidence reposed in him The conference of Colonial Min isters in London of which so much was expected has finally adjourned with little more than passing notice It seems to have been a disappoint ment to the Government The propositions for preferential trade and to have the colonies aid with money and men in maintain ing the army and navy of the em pire by which British trade and armament were to be strengthened were not approved in fact were emphatically rejected The colon ists could not be convinced of the benefit of trading only with Eng land and each other and positively refused to see the patriotic duty of I agreeing to supply proportionate shares of men and costs to an imperial army and maintainI imperial armaments based on European standing armies and preparations for war as Sir Wil frid Laurier of Canada expressed it Canada and Australia instead of accepting the government proposals for unifying and strengthen ing the empire led the opposition The only result of the conference was that it gave the colonies an opportunity tomake known and urge upon the Government their respective wants and this they did with unanimity It developed that the colonies are far more interested and anxious about their own local welfare than the prosperity and glory of the British empire and were bold enough to say so Chamberlains colonial conference was only productive of more worry ing problems Honesty is the best policy JJ is an old saying and in this progres sive age considered out of date by some Nerve and sharp practice may win for a time but the truth of the saying is eventually verified to the confusion of those who defy it The memorable case of the New York Aldermen who with a single exception accepted bribes for city railway franchises and derided the lone honest man as a fool finally realized which were the fools as all of the bribetakers became fugitives bankrupts and ended their lives in prison or exile Chicago Minneapolis and Brooklyn furnished like cases with a goodly number of convicts And now comes St Louis with the climax of the railway bribery of the House of Delegates City Council several years ago and of the nineteen bribetakers who fled at the first intimation of danger all but five are in custody with the penitentiary in sight for bribery and perjury Doubtless these nineteen will now admit that the minority who re fused bribes and voted against the railway franchise were right after all Honesty is the best policy Russia has struck at the ver- yb of English influence in China By some kind of arrangement while China is supposed to manage her own affairs for many years herI customs and postal service have been controlled by Englishmen u 1 sl iY nominally officials of China the Chiefof the Ciucse customs and postal service being Sir Robert Hart a British subject and most of his subordinates named by him being likewise Russia evidently does not recognize these British subjects as Chinese officials within the meaning of the Manchuria treaty and has ordered the expul sion from Manchuria of all British customs and postal officials em ployed by the Chinese Government This is just a contrary move to that contended for by England that Russia should evacuate Man churia As Russia is reported to have 100000 troops fully armed and equipped and occupying com manding positions in Manchuria and adding to her armament via the TransSiberian railway the order of expulsion only confirms the impression that there is no in tention of evacuating but that British subjects though nominally Chinese officials must evacuate What course England will pursue in the matter has not yet been in dicated Ta comply with Russias order Deans the end of British in fluence in Chinese affairs to refuse may result in war New

who attended must feel that Aran is not be hind in preserving the Irish language Father White now leaves Aran after two years faithful zealous missionary work regretted by all At the conclusion of the concert the parish priest who speaks Irish fluently thanked the strangers for their patronage and pointed out that those who could appreciate genuine Gaelic were afforded a rare treat and could judge

INTERESTING SPEECHES fY Iii The Hibernian banquet at the Willard Hotel Sunday evening was a gala affair and came as a fitting close to the State convention held here The banquet was held in the main dining room of the Willard Hotel where Steward Garvey had tastefully arranged the table for the fifty guests It was a democratic affair not in the political but in the real sense All sat at one table with Toastmaster Newton G Rogers in thecenter while on either hand sat State Presidentelect Keenan and the retiring State President Shine and Fathers Kelly and Gausepohl These were flanked by the other new and old State officials who1 were in turn flanked by the delegates and invited guests It was indeed a happy good natured crowd when all sat down about 915 oclock The menu was excellent and reflected credit on the hotel management Rev Father Gausepohl invoked the blessing- In due time the guests dispatched the viands laid before them and after the cigars had been lighted Toastmaster Rogers arose in his place and apologized for his shortcomings as he said the posi tion of toastmaster was new to him No apologies were necessary however He acted the part as well as if he had been working at it all his life jHe was witty modest courteous brilliant and at all times pleasant He was iifshort an idealI toastmaster Mr Rogers introduced Judge M T Shine of Coviflgton who re sponded to the toast Good of the i OrderJudge Shine delivered his remarks in his usual impressive style and made a fine impression He spoke feelingly of what he knew of the order during the thirtythree years that he had been a member He congratulated the members of the order in the county of Jefferson and State of Kentucky over the auspi cious inauguraiion of a new era He told how the Ancient Order had buffeted time and storms and how through the efforts of the members and with the encourage went of the clergy theonler continued to live and flourish He said that the Hibernians hail possibly done more toward the amelioration of suffering humanity than any other organization The Catholic man by reason of being a Catholic ought to be the best citizen so ought a Catholic society be the best society and that the Ancient Order of Hibernian had proven to be Judge Shine said there was a united effort all over the country to bring the members of theorder closer to gether in order that they might more readily practice the great principles of the order Unity Friendship and True Christian Charity He urged all to work singlyand collectively for the good of the order and bade them reflect upon its obligations James Rodgers a veteran member of the order had been selected to respond to the toastliThe Ancient Order but he could not be present Frank Cun ningham of St Louis was called upon in his stead Mr Cunningham made a brief address speaking of the freedom of our glorious country and told how largely the Irish bad contributed make the country what it was He urged the members of the order to give their chil dren Catholic educations so that they might be proud of their religion their country and their ancestry Thomas Keenan the new State Presi dent responded to the toast The Hiber nian of today Mr Keenan began by congratulating the Ancient Order of the present on the way its members were rising in the world He said that at the present time its members came from every trade profession and walk inure He provoked a laugh by referring to the fact that the order in Louisville even had a brewery connection Tom Cody of Sean Ackermann Brewing Company The steps taken at the meeting held in the afternoon he said would enable the Hibernians to accomplish their every purpose and bring in many new mem bers He concluded by stating that our forefathers would be proud of the organization could they see it today John J Barrett was down for a talk and he talked in his oldtime happ vein showing that his health and spirits are being rapidly restored Mr Barrett dwelt particularly on the virtues of li Ancient Order He carried his hearers back twentyeight years to the time the first division was formed ia Louisville At that time the order in Louisville was mainly composed of workingmen and now today behold the grand result every profession is represented He told how the order had relieved hundreds in dis tress and suffering outside as well as inside the order Its charity was broad he said The amount of good done was beyond computation because no ledger account had been kept lie said Louis villa was a bright star In the Hibernian firmament The order had never been handled by politicians No one ever found it necessary to askany Louisville Division for charity Mr Barretts re marks were well received Rev Father Kelly 01P was called upon to respond totJe toast The Hibernian as a Catholic He said the terms were synonymous To be a fiber alan was to be a Catholic as honest ItY Zn f Hl A man a moral man a credit to his coun try and ancestry The Catholic church was the bulwark of freedom He said the blood of heroes and martyrs flowed through the veins of Ilibernians lIe called ettcution to the fact that there were those who wanted the Irish people to forget past wrongs inflicted by the English Government No said Father Kelly we can not forget our heroes and our martyred ancestors We will I not can not forget the noble traditions of the past- William M Higgins editor and publisher was called upon to respond to the toast The Catholic Press After a few happy remarks by way of preface Mr Higgins said in part The mission of the Catholic press is to enlighten the people on current events to keep the people in touch with the times to guard them against errors of the purely secular press and to let them know what the Church is doing in the way ofeducation and civilization Its matter should always be in keeping with the teachings of the Church When it opposes the doctrines of the Church it ceases to be CatholicThe Catholic press should ever seek after and publish the truth It should ever avoid sensationalism or socalled yellow journalism Its columns should chronicle carefully and accurately what has happened in the sciences in art and letters yes even the science of politics To be a good Catholic one must be a good citizen of his country andevery citizen to be a good citizen must take auI interest in politics The Catholic journal should also chronicle accurately athletic events not prize fights but running jumping rowing base ball etc All of these are legitimate athletics and the youth who is an athlete must keep him self pure in mind must be temperate in his habits He learns to control his appetites and later in life this training j stands him in good stead when his men tal powers are brought into competition with others The Catholic press should be encouraged It will not do alone to say the editor of the Catholic journal is a clever fellow me like him Catho lic journals and writers are human they must eat they must wear clothes they must support families and they cant do these things on kind words alone They need material aid There never has been an issue of any Catholic paper that has not done some good Each and everyone of them contain something that will touch a heart somewhere perhaps the heart of one who has grown lukewarm in his faith or who has fallen away from the church altogether He picks up a Catholic paper possibly in an idle mo ment He finds a story on mother It fits him He can not repress a few tears He can not put it out of his mind The still small voice of conscience can ber silenced no longer He reads and rereads that story It reminds him of his own home and mother of the prayers he learnedat her knee lIe hungers for more stories of that kind and he finds them in Catholic journals and then al most before he knows it he is back iu the bosom of the church Thomas J Dolan was down to respond to the toast Irish Sport He pleaded illness but was forced to say a few words which were wellreceived Rev Father William Gauspohl was called upon and made a happy address lIe told of a caning he received at the hands of the Ancient Order in Michigan Father William still has the cane as a memento of the affair He said it wasII good for men to get together at such meetings as the present occasion and exchange ideas It cemented more strongly the union existing among them He referred to America as the bride and Erin as the fond mother He spoke feelingly of the noble Irish soldiers who constituted more than half of Washing tons army and of Washingtons farewell address to his Catholic soldiers Great applause followed when Father Gauspohl closed by referring to Bishop McFaul of Trenton N J as the American Flag Prosecuting Attorney Robert Hagan made an entertaining address on fraternal orders and the love of mankind James Coleman the last speaker urged all to live up to the grand lessons incul cated at this banquet The guests shook hands all around and left the banquet hall feeling better for the pleasant even ing spent among their friends James OHara County Secretary of the New Albany A O H and John Golden of New Albany were among the guests

One part of the work has attractedat tention all over the city during the past week That is the gilding of the cross on the Cathedral steeple The cross itself Is twentytwo feet high and from the

who learned their trades in Louisville The Cathedral was painted in 1885 but the cross on the steeple has not been gilded since 1870 William and George Frank swinging on their little threefoot scaffolds high up in the air appear little larger than files to persons on the ground below Yet they go about their work as if they were on terra firma When the Cathedral cross was gilded in 187G John
