to Mountl St Marys Emmittsburg Md the cradle of Bishops II There he spentt many happy but studious years andI wben lie lead completed his preparatory course he removed to New York City where he devoted himself to the study of law Although he was a good student and made rapid progress he found the law not altogether to his liking Something higher called him He returned to St Marys and entering the theological seminary spent six years in studyl- nt theology and philosophy At the end of his course be was ordained on October 6 1852 This solemn event took place iIn the cathedral in New

this position until 1857 when he was chosen Director of St Marys Theological Seminary to suc ceed Rev Dr Elder who had been chosen Bishop of Natchez and who is at present the Archbishop of Cincinnati About this time Georgetown College conferred upon Father McCloskey the honorary degree of Doctor of Theology Then came the establishment of the American College at Rome Its success depended on its first rector A man of profound learning and of executive ability was absolutely necessary The choice of the American hierarchy fell upon Rev Dr William George Mc Closkey The recommendation was sent to Rome and was approved by His Holi ness Pope Plus IX And so in 1859 the American College was opened and Dr McCloskey was installed as its rector From the beginning the success of the college was assured under his able managementOur Rev Bishop has good cause to feel proud of his record as an educator The young men who were the original students in the American College at Rome would alone make him famous Two of them became Archbishops Arch bishop Riordan of San Francisco and the late Archbishop Corrigan of New York Another one of these students who became celebrated was Dr McGlynn now dead

All of these students became learned doctors of theI faith Dr McGlynn was the first Vice Rector of the College as Dr McCloskey was the first rector Nearly all of these have passed into eternity but their pre ceptor still lives The American College at Rome was established by the late Holy F therI Pius IX It was hts own idea The college was opened in a convent in the via dell Umillta which had been bought for that purpose from an order of sisters which had moved to other quarters t Pope Pius IX at the head of the stu dents of all nations as well as Americans V marched from the Propaganda to the new college on a tour of inspection This was before the liberty of the Pope had been taljen away Afterwards th new Americas College was formally opened by Cardinal Barnabo Prefect of the Propaganda Dr William George McCloskey was installed as the first rector Under his care were the youn theologians mentioned above At the completion of his course Dr McGlynn became the first vice rector of the college Nearly all of the members of the first class afterwards became rectors of colleges themselves For nearly nine years Dr McCloskey conducted the affairs of the American College with wisdom and ability On tke death of Bishop Lavtelle which oc I p curred May 11 1807 Louisville was without a Bishop until the Rev Dr McCloskey was chosen by Pius IX to succeed him He was consecrated Bishop of Louisville in the chapel of the Ameri can College at Rome by Cardinal Rei sash on May 24 1808 In October of the same year he arrived in Louisville and took possession of his See Catholic education was his life work above all others The first efforts of Bishop McCloskey were directed toward founding theological seminary in his diocese He found only two theological students for the diocese but established a temporary seminary at St Josephs Col lege near Bardstown in September wasrremoved to Preston Park near Louisville Among his first class were Father James Ryan now Bishop of Alton Ill Father Edwin Drury Father J J Crow ley Father M Dillon Father William Fatbertour own Father P MI Rock Another one of his early pupils at St Joseph was Father Donoghue now Bishop of In dianapolis As soon as these young men were fitted for their great work they were ordained and given parishes and other students took their places Catholic seminaries and schools have ever since received the care and encouragement of the Right Rev Bishop He is still in engaged in the work of educating young men for the priesthood Bishop McCloskey came of a religious family His elder brother Father John McCloskey long since dead was at one time President of St Marys College Maryland Another brother Father George McCloskey resigned as pastor of one of the largest churches in New York to

the Orphans Number of Priests in the Dio cese JIm Increased Three Fold FIGURESP When the Right Rev Bishop Mc hekfound twelve Catholic churches Some of them were completed dedicated and consecrated but others were in course of erection while the members of the con gregations worshiped in temporary quar ters The churches established when Bishop McCloskey arrived were in order of seniority The Cathedral as it had replaced the old Cathedral St Boniface Church of Our Lady Church of the Immaculate Conception St Patricks St Martins St Johns St Peters St Josephs St Louis Bertrnnds St Mich aels and St Anthonys These churches were scattered over a great tract of territory and the worshipers in many in offnew prelate once sought to remedy this and people who wondered why he had started a seminary for the education of young priests ceased to mar vel As soon as a young theologian was ready for ordination a parish was found for him and the work of church building went on rapidly It will be remembered that this was only a few years after the civil war The South was stricken and Kentucky and Kentucky Catholics felt the stress of it There were hundreds of colored people recently emancipated slaves living in Louisville They had no particular place of worship The first church built in Louisville after the ad vent of Bishop McCloskey was St Au gustines It was built for the colored LancasterSpaldingnothe Peoria Ill was its first pastor Then followed in quick succession the erection of the Church of the Sacred Heart St Brigids St Cecilias St Agnes St Vincent de Pauls St Columbas Hoy Trinity St Frances of Rome St Charles St Francis of Assissi St Mary Magda lens St Pauls St Aloysius Church of the Holy Name Holy Cross St Philip Neri St Helens and St Williams In some cases two and even three new congregations were established each year and in no case did more than four years elapse without the founding of a new congregation or the building of a new church Several of the old churches were torn down and built in more modern style For instance St Columbas n frame structure gave way to a handsome brick edifice and the name was changed to the Church of the Blessed Sacrament and again the old St Brigids church on Baxter avenue was torn down and a new modern edifice was erected on Von Bar ries avenue in honor of St Brigid while the congregation was divided in half part of it becoming St Aloysius congre gation But Bishop McCloskey did more than this He was interested in the education of the Catholic youth He insisted on a parochial school for each church and he encouraged academies founded by the Sisters of Nazareth Sisters of Mercy Sisters of Loretto Dominican Sisters and by the Xaverian Brothers Infirm aries were being enlarged and new ones built The Sisters of the Good Shepherd enlarged their home and built a new one for unfortunate young women In fact every manner of good work was looked after and encouraged Particularly was this so in the case of the orphans Bishop McCloskey has ever had a warm spot in his heart for the motherless waifs and has left no stone unturned to make them happy to educate them and to make them good men and women In brief when Bishop McCloskey took charge of the diocese of Louisville he found about fifty priests in the whole diocese and a score of churches of which more than half were in the city of Louisville 4 During his thirtyfour years he has built up the diocese to 110 secular r priests about sixty priests of the various orders he has ninetytwo churches with resident pastors and fortythree without resident pastors Of these churches with resident pastors thirtyone are in Louis ville and Jefferson county In this diocese are fifty religious institutions pre sided over by priests or Sisters of various orders two colleges twentyone acade mies four orphan asylums and eighty seven parish schools The total number of children attending the Catholic schools s in the city of Louisville alone is more than 0000 and it is estimated that the total number of Catholics in the diocese is a little more than 110000 POSTULANTS FOR GALVESTON The steamer Oceanic which arrived in New York last week had

golden jubilee of his ordination and adds the hope that all things including the weather may hie propitious to a successful amd happy celebration of the occasion HOW WILL IT END Ireland has been remarkably peaceful for years There has not been the semblance of revolution 01r violence no resistance to authority very few assaults upon persons or property Felony and even petty offenses against the law are at such a minimum as to justly claim that Ireland is the most law abidln g country of the world This is fully attested by court records as well as the press reports The quarterly courts of six counties have not hat a criminal case for trial nor a felony prisoner in jail for years many other counties ditto for months and in none of the thirty two counties has the jail had more than one or two felony prisoners or the court more than that many cases on docket the court being it session only one or at most a few days every three mouths The opening of quarterly court announcing no cases to be tried and presenting the Judge with the tra ditional white gloves has become so common in Ireland as to pass i without notice The Judges ol fs quarterly courts and their officers i have had very little to do except draw salaries acd spud their time in recreation and touring for several years- Furthermore the people have assiduously and peaceably devoted their energies to labor and trade developed the farms factories and industries improved the roads built bridges bettered sanitary conditions established and increased schools They have prospered are more than supporting themselves andpauperism and dependency have 1 almost disappeared and where it still exists the people provide the relief and care for the unfortunate better than formerly and at no expense now to the Imperial Gov ernment This is the result of home rule in local affairs and where the landlords have them selves observed the spirit as well as the letter of the law and this refers to the greater part of Ireland There are exceptionsthe sec tions where the landlords still in defiance of law adhere to the policy of extortion coercion end force But for these exceptions all Ireland would no doubt be free from agitation for redress as re maining evils with a proper course might be relied upon to right them selves in time As it is the agita tion and protests the organization and efforts to secure justice and right are peaceful orderly and in accordance with lawthe lawful exercise of rights by the people resorting to legal methods of the ballot legislation and the courts There the issues should have been tried out the Government only maintaining the peace protecting life and property insuring a full hearing a fair decision But the Government seems to have pre judged the issues or at least to have determined that they shall tinotbe heard and decided according- to l Wby the people Parliament and the courts The Government has taken the side of the offending landlords Instead of aiding the G effort to bring these landlords to trial for violating the laud laws everything is done to thwart itpdt rs- II attempts to check by legal process the acts of these landlords and their agents in dispossessing evicting and goading their tenants have been likewise ignored and every power given them to con tinue their cruel course On the other hand the protests of the people their very petitions and efforts to seek legal redress and protection in the courts and parliament indorsed and supported as they are by the unanimous Irish people is contrued as justification or a pretense for declaring all Ireland in a state of crime requir ing the summary and arbitrary procedure of the crimes act County after county has been proclaimed and now the cities are being included and soon Ireland will be under military rulefor iit is really martial law though no state of war exists The mere proclaiming based on unproved allegations suspends civil government like the mere order of aI commander based on simple infor mation On information people are arrested and held without bail houses entered and searched and property seized Petty magistrates appointed and subject to removal by the Government decide the cases and inflict the penalties and there is no appeal in this respect worse than martial law as the finding of a courtmartial must be approved by higher authority This is simply coercion and that without even semblance of just cause That the people though aroused to indignation have dis appointed the instigators of the outrageous course and not resorted to violent resistance fully attests the lawabiding character as well as the wisdom of the Irish people But they are holding meetings attended by thousands including all classes sects and politicsno longer confined to the peasant tenantry and League agitators to protest against and petition for the recall of the proclama tion which brands them as out laws deprives them of all civil rights and protection and subjects them to arbitrary arrest and im prisonment disturbs the public peace and menaces life and prop ertyWill the Government heed the voice of the people The purpose of the coercion to excite the tenantry to overt acts giving a pretext for summary use of mili tary force has failed i the result has been to unite nil classes sects and parties in cities and rural districts a few landlords exceptedin disapproval protest and petition Still within the bounds of peace and law and only requiring so far the stroke of a pen by the Imperial Premier to stop the madness of the Castle oligarchy j allay the popular indignation and avert the storm For a united people lawabiding but earnest in protest against causeless oppression have a limit to endurance Mr Balfour has another test ALL DISSATISFIED That the recent colonial confer ence in London was not productive of the contentment harmony and unity desired is becoming evident since the Colonial Premiers returned home Already the Premier of Queensland in Australia is leading a movement for withdrawal from the Australian Federation and demanding autonomy for hiscol ony Premier Boyle of Newfound land on his return finds his color nial government insists ana reci procity treaty with the United States and he is sent tack to Lou Iont via Washingtoni to urge the i a V i 1 t+ r c f matter with United States and the Imperial Government The colony of Jamaica has sent to London a petition for reciprocal relationsor annexation to the United States The loyal colonies of Cape Town and Natal protest against being merged into the South African Federation with the new colonies of Transvaal and Orange Tree State Canada when her Parlia ment meets is certain to fall into line with her varied demands AU in all Great Britain and her cole tiies do not give promise of contin uing a happy family The agitation against the educational bill continues to spread iin England and is no longer confined to nonconformists and political opponents Members and clergy of the Established church and Conservative party are also expressing disapproval This demonstrates that the desire for home rule is as strong in England as in Ireland or elsewhere and as the people realize that the bill is to deprive them of the control of education for their children they resent and oppose iit regardless of religion or politics Perhaps this menace may lead the English people to a better understanding of the continuous agita tions in Ireland subjected for cen turies to denial of every local right and cause them to give some con sideration to Irish protests and petitions and finally concede to the Irish what they themselves hold so dear home rule A taste of the bitter is often the most ef fective argument and the attempt to give to the English people a small dose of British rule in Ireland may have a good effect Right Rev Bishop Messmer o Geeen Bay who participated iin the preliminary Philippine negotia tions and is said to be one of the nominees for Archbishop of Chi cago has found it necessary to re fute the news gossips It is charged that he opposed and ihi dissatisfied with the Philippine agreement iis persona non grata with Gov Taft President Roosevelt and Pope Leo and for that reason will not be appointed Archbishop of Chicago to which he ardently aspires The Bishop says the report is en tirely false that the Philippine e question is proceeding along lines advocated by him that he never disagreed with Gov Taft Presi dent Roosevelt nor the Pope in the matter and finally he has no desire to be Archbishop of Chicago preferring to remain Bishop of the Green Bay diocese The tobacco war in Great Britain has ended in a combination of the American and two leading British companies Under the terms the American Company is to control the tobacco trade in all American territory including Hawaii the Philippines and Cuba while the British companies are conceded the trade of Great Britain and British possessions The remainder of the- worM is thus the only sphere of competition As the American company will control the tobacco reducing as well as the greatest tobacco consuming territory it did not get the worst of the bargain The editor of the Kentucky Irish American begs leave to thank the many friends who have extended their sympathy over his recent bereavement These expressions have all been heartfelt and were indeed a source of consolation in the time of trouble and anguish Words are to feeble to express the thanks we wish to extend Our hope is that when grim death invades the families of our many friends that they will meet with the same heartfelt sympathy ac corded us PRAYER WAS USELESS A Judge on paJelng sentence of death poiTan lHshnian Bald as usual I have nothing6bw to dobutto base the dread- fUl sentence of the law

A1LEYrtlCAl OUR CHURCHES Arc Edifices of Which Cathol People of Louisville May Bo Proud Their Erection Has Kept PRCC With the Growth of tho Population Bishop McCIoftlcoy Saw the Need oV Many Churches and Built Them SOME PACTS OF THEIR HISTORY The Catholic churches of the cityiiof Louisville are edifices of which her Call olic people stay well he proud Not all of them ore large Neither are they all of stone or brick but no matter how small or unpretentious they are neat anel attractive in appearance In noting the occurrences of this great jubilee time it will not be amiss to give a brief historic sketch of each of these churches and Iin so doing one has to go back nearly a century or to the time the first Cathol church was built in Louisville This was in 1811 when that pioneer missionary Father Badin who hall spent several years in Kentucky visited Louisville and caused to he erected a little plain fraDJe structure This church was located on what is now Tenth and Main streets and wasthe first St Louis church People of the Catholic faith from near and far even as far off as Bardstowt attended the little church to assist at the holy sacrifice of the mass lint it wRl ten years later before a resident paste was assigned to this church He came in the person of Father IIosten In the same year he died a victim of a rnallj naut fever Two years later he was succeeded by Rev Father Robert Abell a native American and a man of rare eloquence In 1832 Father Abell purchase a large tract of ground on Fifth street where the present Cathedral now stands and there erected the second St Louis church which became the Cathedral iin 1841 when the See was removed frot Bardstown to Louisville Cathedral originally meant a seat or throne but latterly It has grown to mean the main church of a diocese or the church wherein the Bishop has his throne or seat In 1849 the corner stone of the new Cathedral under the title of St Mary of the Assumption was laid adjoining the old Cathedral of St Louis The walls of the new church were built outside of tha old but it was not until October 3 1852 that the new Cathedral was dedicated By a strange coincidence white this church was dedicated in the then Far West a young theologian Williat George McCloskey was preparing for bls ordination in the city of Rome So that his ordination took place in the same week as the dedication but it was no until sixteen years later he came to the Cathedral as its Bishop The Cathedra is a masterpiece of architecture and iIis one of the handsomest churches in the United States It has been painted and renovated recently in honor of the doubl golden jubilee of its dedication and of its Bishops ordination Bishop Flaget was present on the occa sloe of the laying of the corner stone but did not live to see the new Cathedra completed Bishop Martin John Spald lug afterward Archbishop of Baltimore a Kentuckian dedicated the new Cathedral The first rector was the Rev Father Ben J Spalding a brother of the Bishop p who died in 1868 The next rector was the then Rev now Right Rev Monsig nor Bouchet who was also made Vicar General Both positions he has held continuously for a period of nearly thirty four years Attracted by the building of the Louis yule and Portland canal as early as 182 many German Catholic emigrants were drawn to Louisville and vicinity but it was not until 1833 that a priest was found who could minister to them in their own language This young priest was Father James Joseph Ferncding who had just been ordained by Bishop Flaget He was at once assigned to the care of the German Catholics in Louisville but at that time Bardstown was the See and the diocese included a large part of Indiana so that Father Ferneding had to traverse much of Indiana as well as a large part of Kentucky in ministering to his flock But in 1836 came another German priest Father Stahlschmldt who built the first St Boniface church a small structure f close by the site of the present church This church was dedicated by Coadjutor Bishop Chabrat on November 4 1837 In 1839 Father Karl Blank a young Swiss priest was installed as pastor of St Boni face In place of Father Stahlschmldt who went on a collection tour through the South The congregation continued to grow and flourish under Father Blank until he died in 1840 Then followed successively Fathers Heimann and Voll until 1849 when the Franciscans at the invitation of Bishop Flaget arrive and f took charge of the congregation Under their able administration the old congre gation grew and branched out so that from the original thirty or thlrty five German Catholic families within a few years there were more than 100 and it became necessary to build other German Catholic churches in various parts of the city At the present time St Boniface church of which Very Rev P Paul Alf 0 F M is pastor has more than 500 families over 700 children In its parochial schools the boys taught by the Franciscan Brothers and the girls by the Ursnllne Sisters In 1806 the old St Boniface church was found to be entirely too small and Bishop McCloskey author lied the constructioa ofa new church but the corset stone WM not laid until flay 24ii899a4 edifice was eon l i S t pleted and dedicated on November 18 1900 This beautiful building is considered by many the handsomest piece of church architecture lai the city It is modern in every respect heated with steam and lighted by electricity That part of Louisville still known as Portland is older than Louisville though years ago the boundaries of the city of Louisville were extended to take in Portland Portland was settled bYpioneer French families wboie descendants stin hold the faith and are faithful members of the Church of Our Lady in Portlan The corner stone of the Church of Our Lady was blessed in 1841 Its congreg tlou was made up of the early French families and Rev Napoleon Perche was the first pastor lie afterward became Archbishop of New Orleans Father Vital succeeded Father Perche as paste He died in 1801 and WAS succeeded Iby Father John Bekkers The congregatic was growing and Americans as well as French hall moved into the neighbc hood Father Bekkers found it necessary to enlarge the church lie also erected a parochial school and a handsome pastoral residence In 1870 it was founll that the old church was unsafe It was turn down and a new building erected under the supervision of the paste Father John McConnell The late Father Harnst succeeded Father McConnell as pastor and he had nearly succeeded in paying off the heavy debt when he died in 1893 He was succeeded by the present beloved pastor the Rev James J Conniff who is doing a yeoman work in building up his congregation Nearly 200 children are being educated in the parochial schools under the care of the Sisters of Loretto The church and school hours are located on Rudd below Thirtyfifth street As Louisville grew so increased the number of German Catholics that I In 1847 ten years after the first German Catholic church was dedicated it became necessary to build another German Cat olio church This work was entrusted by Bishop Flaget to Father C Boeswal who had his church at Eighth and Gra son streets completed in 1849 It was dedicated by Bishop Spalding July 8 1849 This buildiug of brick and stone still stands a monument to the zeal of the early German Catholics of Louisville The present pastor Rev Father Westerman is greatly beloved 1by his congregation Through his indefatigable efforts a handsome parochial school building was erected a few years ago 1t Is doubtiul if there is a handsomer sor better equipped school building in the city More than 200 pupils are being educated in this school The church was solemnly consecrated on July 9 189 fifty years after its dedication Noble sons and daughters of Irelat had visited and settled in the wilderness found the Ohio falls long before Louis rllle became a village No matter where you find a settlement of the Irish race you will always find them clinging 1 to their faith Although the Irish grew iin numbers in Louisville it was not cntil 1853 that they had a church of their owl tip to that time the majority of the Irish people had been worshiping in the Cathi Iral In that year the first St Patrick Lurch was built It was a plain brick structure and Father Thomas Joyce was installed as its pastor This able and earnest man went to work with a wit He gathered his flock around him ormed societies and confraternities and people came from near and far to hear he word of God preached by one of their own race Soon it was found that the church was too small and a new church the present structure was built It was dedicated in 1802 Six years later Father Joyce died He was succeeded by the ate Father Lawyer of beloved memory Ie carried out the good work begun by his predecessor and St Patricks soon bad one of the largest congregations in the city He cleared off the debt of the hurch in n few years added the steeple put in the handsome stained glass win lows and embellished the church in many ways He also built the presen parochial residence During his Jlfe be had the pleasure to see his hurch consecrated the third church in Louisville to be consecrated Faterl awler died in 1873 and was succeeded by Father Thomas F Gambon another hard worker who had the confidence of- his entire people He worked early and late for them and so in a few brief year wore out his strength He died last fall and was succeeded by Father Cronin the present pastor who is also chancellor ofr the diocese St Patricks parochial scbool for boys and girls is conducted by- the Sisters of Mercy Nearly 300 pupils are in attendance Although the parish wits have been diminished many time by the erection of new churches St atricks still has one of the largest and most liberal congregations in the city Father James P Cronin although he- has been at St Patricks less than a year has endeared himself to each and every member of the congregation When he took charge he found plenty of hardwork toi do Father Gambon had just died and Father Kelleher had been ill for months Father Cronin set to work manfully and soon won the hearts of his people Added to his work as pastor of Stt Patricks church he was made Chancellor of the diocese a position which entaiJed a great deal of additional labor He now has two assistants Rev Father Peter McNeil and Rev Father Nessey Father Cronin is a native of Frankfort Ky His parents both of whom are now living at Lexington are natives of Ireland and are justly proud of their son Inti another column will be found a photograph of the interior of St Patricks cburch taken a few weeks ago on the seventh anniversary of the consecration of the church Father Cronin stands at- the right of the altar The third German Catholic church to be erected fa Louisville was St Martins St Boniface church in the eastern part of thedty was no longer able to accommodate the large and growing congregation Surly in 1868 Bishop Spalding purcbased a tract of ground nu the tsi- de of Shelby street 1bof Broadway as a site for the new church He law 0 of 0 I I INTERIOR VIEW OF ST PATRICKS CHURCH that the city of Louisville was growing and lie foresaw that this part of the city was destined to be thickly settled The corner stone of St Martins church was laid on the new site on Octobur 12 1853 Father Leander a saintly man was ns signed to the task of caring for the cot gregaUon and building the new church In August of the following year the new church was dedicated So rapidly did the new congregation increase that in a few years it became necessary to enlarg the church When this work was completed it was except the Cathedral the largest fn the diocese with the frontag e of eighty feet by 180 feet in length During the present year the length of the church is being increased eighteen feel making it when completed 198 feet long In addition the old brick front is givin way to a handsome stone front and the church is being repainted throughout On July 23 1888 Bishop McCloske installed Father Francis Zabler as pasto of St Martins church Father Zable has proven to be a man of great energ and executive ability and only a few years ago was raised to the dignity of a member of the Popes household with the title of Monsignor He is ably as stated in his work by Fathers Berresheim Thome and Assent Since Father Zable took hold of St Martins in addition tithe new and handsome parochial school and hall building on Gray street he has added new stained glass windows to the church Every one of these is a rea work of art ds are the new stations of the cross the magnificent marble altar communion rail and the splendid organ which is said to be the finest in the city The new school building alone cost 22 000 It is doubtful is any church in the jetty owns more valuable church am school property than St Martins Thi parochial school for boys is taught by the Franciscan Brothers while the Ursu line Nuns teach the girls More that 900 pupils attend these two schools Thi church is out of debt Not the largest but one of the most edifying congregations is that worshiping in St Johns church at Clay and Walnut streets Away back in 1854 the congre gallon of St Johns was established with the late Father Elder in charge The first place of worship was on Jefferson street near Preston about the present site of Turner Hall The church was a small wooden shanty In 1855 Rev Father Lawrence Bax was assigned to St Johns parish and at that time the parish extended from Brook street to Pewee Valley and from the Ohio river on the north to the limit of Jefferson county on the south Father Bax was then as now a zealous worker and an able financier In less than three years he had undertaken to build a new church and for that purpose purchased a plot of ground on Walnut street corner of Clay and there on April 24 1858 the corner stone of the new church was blessed by Bishop Miles of Nashville The sermon was preached by Bishop Spalding The new church was rapidly completedand on December 2 1860 it was solemnly consecrated the third church in Louis yule to be thus honored Archbishop Purcell of Cincinnati officiated while the sermon was preached by Bishop Spalding In the evening Archbishop Spalding occupied the pulpit And now more titan forty years later father Bax the venerable pastor is still In charge of that church and congregation A few but very few of those who were members of the congregation when he church was on Jefferson street remain Father Bax is bale and hearty and expects to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of his ordination next spring Father Bax has always taken a particular pride in his schools TheXaverian Brothers are in charge of the boys and be Sisters of Charity are in charge of the iris In 1855 while that southwestern part of Louisville that later became known as California was almost a wilderness ilshop Spalding deemed it wise to erect here a Catholic church In the same year a small brick edifice was erected to erve as both church and parochial chool Father Beyhurst was its first pastor But as everywhere else the atho1ic church became a center of popu ition and comet rte Eleven years after the erection of tpe first church of St eter a new brick church was built and tbe old church was used as a parochial hppl only The new church was built mist the direction of FatherKeller In iMthah a decade it became naewsary to 6 JI 1v fb- J 1 J h FS enlarge the church to its present proportions seventy feet wide ind 120 fee deep This work was done under the supervision of Father Dulmovilch who on account of failing health was com penCIl to relinquish his arduous labors it 1893 He retired to Rome and was sue ceeded by Father Greulich who in 189 built the new and handsome parochia school one of the finest in the city atsi coast of 23000 More than 360 pupil attend this school and are tntight by the Ursuline Nuns Father Prcisser has since succeeded to the pastorate of St Peters vice Father Greulich transferred to St Anthonys In 1866 it was found necessary to es tablish a new congregation in the north central part of Louisville and in that yeas Bishop Lavialle purchased the building on Brook street between Market and Jefferson which has since been known as St Michaels church Originally the congregation was made up almost entirely ol people of the Irish race But in recent years a great many Italians Syrians and Roumanians have settled in Iheneighbor hood giving the congregation a more cosmopolitan air The first pastor was the late Father Michael Power who was dearly beloved by his congregation After laboring among his people twelve years he died in 1878 and was succeeded by the late Father Pleggenborgrobe soon be came as popular as his predecessor Father Plaggenborg wore himself out in a few years ministering to his flock lIe was succeeded by Father John Sheridan the present pastor who has the confi dence of his flock and who has greatly reduced the indebtedness of the church St Michaels has a fine parochial school presided over by the Sisters of Nazareth Those energetic men of God the fol lowers of St Dominic had long con ducted their convent at St Rose near Springfield in Washington county Ky and they saw that Louisville was to be the metropolis of the State There they desired to build a church j and received authority to build it from Bishop La vialle A temporary wooden structure was erected on Seventh street opposite Oldham In 1866 It was located in the center of a growing Irish Catholic com munity The priests sent to take charge of the new church were all Irish or Irish Americans and before long the Domini can church was the center of attraction Little cottages sprung up all around and at that time the Dominicans owned about ten acres of ground surrounding the church It was only two years before it was discovered that the wooden church was too small The Dominicans had built a magnificent brick convent on the Sixth street side of the property Intend ing to use it as a seminary for educating young men for the priesthood Everything tended to show that the white robbed Dominicans had come to stay Early in 1869 only a few months after the arrival of Bishop McCloskey be au thorized the Dominicans to build the new church and on August 15 of the same year the corner stone was blessed by our Bishop At that time Father Dennis Joseph Meagher O P was pastor of the congregation Owing to his energy and magnetic qualities he soon had the new church well under way But the people of his congregation were poor and the work undertaken was large However it was carried to a successful conclusion and on January 0 1873 the magnificent stone church that stands today was solemnly dedicated The Bishop cele brated pontifical mass and the dedicatory sermon was preached by Father Tom lurke O P the celebrated Irish orator who was in America at that time From time to time St Louis Bertrands cburcii has been improved by the addition of warble altars stained glass windows a handsome organ tiled floors and hand some

laboring among the colorei people of Louisville Father Spalding sought and obtained permission to bulb a church for the colored people and so in 1869 St Augustines church was erected on Broadway near Fourteenth Father Spalding gave up his work as assistant priest at the Cathedral to under take this work and he carried it to a successful conclusion A handsome two story brick building served for both church and school house Later a comfortable rectory was built Meanwbil Father Spalding was called to auothe diocese and later was consecrated Blsho of Peoria Ill At present he is proml nently

Broadway was blessed Within a short time the brick structure which served as school house and church was erected The congregation throve and grew and in 1885 Bishop McCloskey gave his consent for the erection of a new church The work was undertaken and soon carried to a successful conclusion Five years later the terrible cyclone of March 27 1890 swept over the city en tirely destroying the beautiful church the pastors residence and the parochial school The Sisters were living in the school building One of them lost her life while the others had narrow escapes from death Father Disney although disheartened at once set to work to col lect funds for a new church but he died in December 1891 while the church was still under way Father Patrick Walsh an able earnest man and an eloqueut

pastor and remainedas such until his death in 189 placeinabandoned and St Agnes congregation began to worship at the Sacred Heai Retreat the home of the Passionists 1 It is believed that before long a new and handsome church will be erected on tbe spacious grounds Iu 1877 it became necessary to build a church in the southeastern part of the city to accommodate the German Catholics in that vicinity Father Herman Ping genborg was charged with this work and in the same year he erected a brick built ing at Shelby and Milk streets that served for both church and school It was called St Vincent de Pauls church In 1879 Father Plaggenborg was removed to St Michaels church and Father John Heising succeeded him at St Vincent de Pauls Within a short time after he took hold he obtained permission to build anew church but it was not until 1888 that the new church was completed and dedicated Father Heising was an able energetic man lIe also built a rector and a commodious school building and established societies among the met youths and children He died two year ago and was succeeded by Rev Father Louis Ohle who is ably carrying out the work of his predecessor and is popular not only in his own congregation but aU over the city More than 600 childre attend the parocial school which is conducted by the Ursuline Sisters Twentyfive years ago it was found that there were a number of Catholics in the northeastern part of the city who did not understand nor speak German Paths Edward Breen an Irish priest was given authority to erect a church for them This he did and chose St Columba the Dove of the Church as Its patron saint The church was a small fram affair but large enough for the hums diate wants of the congregation After a few years Father Breen was succeeds by Father Daniel OSullivan who belabored I day and night for his flock Father OSullivan built a rectory and later in 1893 erected the handsome bricl church which is now known as the Church of the Blessed Sacrament lIe also built a new parochial school which has just been completed and blessed What Father OSullivans congregation lacks in numbers is made up in devotioi to him and to the church by his parish iouers Their hope is that he may be spared to labor among them many years For the benefit of the Catholic community in the northeastern part of Jefferson county the congregation of Hoi Trinity was established and placed in charge of Father Louis Oble He pur chased a tract of ground at St Matthew and on it caused to be erected Holj Trinity church which was dedicated in 1882 He also built a suitable pastors residence and parocial school before he was transferred to the Church of St Vincent de Paul in Louisville Father Joseph Neesen succeeded Father Ohle ai pastor of Holy Trinity and is doing admirable work About 100 pupils attend the parochial school and are being taught by the Ursuline Sisters Long before Clifton was taken into the limits of the city of Louisville there was a

eloquent orators of the diocese installed as pastor White the church has not been enlarged it has been beautified in many ways and ai comfortable rectory and parochial school building have been

who was ordained by him built St Charles Borromeo hutch al Twentyseventh and Chestnut treets Father Raffo was an assistant priest at St Patricks when he was ommissioned to build the new church lIe set about it quietly yet energetically and in 1888 bad the pleasure of seeing his new church completed and dedicated It is as yet a frame structure but has rown too small to accommodate the lalholic community that has grown up round it Father Raffo is one of the most popular priests in the city He nows everybody rich and poor Catholic and Protestant He has a kindly word- tor all and has taken a great interest in- his parochial schoolI which accommo area about 200 pupils He has some of pooreatpeopleAll are treated alike Uisosly a uestlon of a short time before Father Raffo will have to build a new church to xommodale his rapidly growing con regttion r i it J In 1886 Father Wcstermanu now pastor of the church of the luiuinculate tStFrancisj southeast of Louisville The congrega tion is small but is growing slowly Since the frame church was built six teen years ago a rectory and a parochial school have been added The school is under the direction of the Sisters of Mercy Father Joseph Rotlieut is at present doing good work as pastor of the small congregation which in time may be one of the largest in the diocese as i the city limits are being gradually extended In that direction Father Thomas A York built the first Church of St Paul on Jackson street near Kentucky in 1888 Five years later it became necessary to build a new church so rapidly had his congregation grown In 1900 it again became neces sary to enlarge to the church to its present size 30 feet front by 100 feetAdeep Besides there is a comfortable rectory and a parochial school accommodating in the neighborhood of 150 pupils taught by the Sisters of Mercy In a few years time Father York will find it necessary to build a new and commodious church When the old St Briglds parish was divided the eastern part of the congre gation went to worship at the new St Briglds church The Rev Father Joseph OGrady was placed in charge of the western part of the congregation and in 1891 he erected a small frame church on Payne street near Cooper It has St Aloysius for its patron saint Although 1 the congregation is small Father OGrady has been enabled to build a parochial residence and also has a small parochial school at which fifty pupils are being educated Father OGrady isaprominent member of the Y M I and is rapidly winning the confidence of the young men The Rev Father Louis Deppen built the Church of the Holy Name at Fourth and 0 streets in 1891 to accommodate the Catholic community of South Louis ville A few years later he was called to other duties and the Rev Father John OConnor was assigned as pastor of the congregation The old church has grown too small and Father OConnor is now engaged in erecting a new handsome brick building that will serve both as a church and school house Four Sisters of Charity teach the parochial school at which 150 children are being educated In a short time Father OConnor will have a very large and prosperous congregation Another small church but amply large enough for the congregation is Holy Cross Church on Broadway and Thirty second streets It was erected by Father 4 John J Fitzgerald in 1895 Shortly after Father Fitzgerald was sent to Shelby yule as pastor of the Church of the An nunciation and the Rev Bernard F Cunningham was installed as pastor of Holy Cross church He has built a neat rectory aud has a small but flourishing school In 1897 the

of Louisville was installed as pastor Father Weiss has succeeded in building a rectory and a parochial school Although his congregation is small and scattered over a great deal of territory every member of it is devoted to its pastor Father Weiss One of the prettiest but by no means one of the largest is St Philip Neris church Floyd and Woodbine streets The church was dedicated in April 1900 The Rev Father P Ackerman also a native of Louisville is the pastor Father Ackerman is proud of his church and congregation and his people are proud of him He has established a parochialrschool taught by the Sisters of Charity Between eighty and one hundred pupils are in attendance Doubtless the handsomest church in Jefferson county outside of the city of Ouisville is St Helenas situated on the

flounce is unquestionably demodeThe of the darker shades of blue among the new wools augurs a season of becoming street dress for no color is more universally becoming than a clear dark blue free from purple or lavender tinge The touch of red and white or of green which appears on a majority of the blue street gowns so far shown warms the costume from its sombre tone Velvet continues a triumphant career and plush has suffered a renaissance plush effects in ribbons trimmings and for millinery uses being much in evidence Plain wools especially in the dark tartans are achieving success in Paris but the American woman refused them in the spring and will probably do so again this fall For some reason or other plaids never take firm hold of American fancy The effort to break the severity of the skirt lines and introdpce modified over skirt effects shows results in many of the newest models A tunic overskirt falling in a deep point at the hem front and back and raised a little at tile sides is the chief development of the Idea In nets crepes and other light fabrics but the cloth gowns affect what is labeled as the Grecian skirt The pleated skirt with side pleats or shallow box pleats is evidently first favorite and all indications point to it as the popular autumn and winter model It clears the ground without showing the feet and is fitted so closely and stitched so firmly over the hips that it adds noth- Ing to the bulk of the figure Such fitting and cutting require an expert and in the hands of a mediocre dress maker or tailor tbe pleated skirt is a smoothlyfittedThe trimmings

Park Enthusiastic Speeches Made by Lord Mayor and Other Patriots THERE IS NO CRIME IN IRELAND Dublin citizens met on the nine acres in Phoenix Park Dublin on Sunday September 14 at which 50000 people were present to raise their voice in pro test against coercion The great meet ing in the Phoenix Park represented the unqualified voice of the entire city de nouncing in a way which none dare misrepresent or distort the attempt to cast obloquy on Dublin and take away from its people the ordinary rights of citizen ship The Lord Mayor who took the chair at the demonstration was well sup ported by his Nationalist colleagues in the Corporation and all the representa tive bodies including the Urban Boards Poor Law Guardians and District Coun cils were represented in a way which showed the greatest unanimity as to the objects of the meeting Very large num bers of clergymen were also present ai sympathizers in the protest which was made end every phase of Nationalist feeling was represented The meeting was truly an inspiring site for those who look forward to seeing Dublin taking its rightful place in the van of the fight which Mr Wyndham has so illadvisedly forced upon the people The Right Hon Lord Mayor took the chair amidst loud cheering Among other things he said I think this magnificent meeting even before a Word is spoken is already a sufficient answer to the insult that has been hurled at our city by the proclamation which was recently issued There were persons Who were evidently under the impression that Dublin was not in sympathy with the National organization and there must have been advisers behind Mr Wyndham who told him that Dubliu was indifferent to the issue which is being fought out in the country I invite him today to consider the significance of this magnificent meeting of the citizens of Dublin when applied to his insulting proclamation On the showing- of his own officials and his own menials by every speech that has been made from time judicial bench and by the records of- crimeaU these have shown plainly that there was not a shadow of a shade of justification for the proclamation of this city We know that Dublin holds as high a character as any city not merely in the Empire but all over the civilized world We know that the proclamation- of Dublin was not meant to suppress crime which does not exist but we know that it is a political move with the object- of striking at the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press but we are hereon behalf of the citizens of this great national city to tell the Government that we hurl back with defiance the libel contained in this proclamation and inas much as it is an endeavor to suppress the freedom of the press and of free speech- in this country we tell them straight that we will fight the issue out inch by inch with the Government This proclamation shows how little the Govern ment knows the spirit of Irishmen It shows how little they have studied the history of this country when they think for one moment that an infamous pro clamation of this kind will terrify the people from the expression of their political opinions The answer we give Mr Wyndham and his minions in Dublin Castle today is thisthat whatever apathy may have prevailed in the national organization in Dublin in the past however strong or weak the United Irish League may have been that in future the United Irish League will be the organization of the people of Dublin and that they will stand faithfully by each other in the fight against Castle Government in this country One of my first duties today is to apologize for the abseece of my friend Mr John Red nond Owing to the very severe illness ifa guest who was staying at his house who met with a severe accident he finds himself unable at the l moment to be with us at this meeting I think how ever we can send him from this great meeting a message that in his policy of determination and of fight whether In the British House of Commons or in the national organization at home 4c yY A VoiceOr in jail The Lord MayorAye my friends or in jail exactly that the forces and strength of the people of Ireland will rally and cling round him in the move ment that he leads and that however fast the running may be made by the Government or however fierce the fight may be Dublin will fulfill its duty to the national causeIP OHara T C then proposed the following resolutionThat this meeting of the citizens of Dublin hereby indig nantly resent the insult and outrage offered to our city by the Irish Govern ment in proclaiming it under the pro visions of the crimes act that we brand as a lie and libel the insinuation that there is any crime in the city to justify the issue of such a proclamation and inasmuch as we recognize the action of the Government as being aimed at the rights of political combination and of free press we hereby pledge ourselves to extend and spread the United Irish League the National organization in our city and to encourage and assist those whom the Government seeks to prose cuteDennis Lynch P L G seconded the resolution in a forcible speech John Dillon lit P followed with an admirable address in which he declared that the magnificent demonstration in which he was taking part would show to Mr Wyndham the English Government and the world that an Irish tempest had been raised which it would take years to quellWilliam OBrien M P followed Mr Dillon and was received with prolonged cheers He said he had come to Dublin not to condole but to congratulate He said the coercion proclamation was a scoundrelly lie a tissue of falsehoods and hypocrisy He said he was almost tempted to call Wyndham the Balaams ass of English rule in Ireland- J P Nannetti M P William Field M P J J Clancy M P and others addressed the meeting in support of the resolution wbicti was unanimously adopted While the meeting was in progress young men on the outskirts of the crowd set fire to a Union Jack and destroyed it while they sang God Save Ireland and Who Fears to Speak of 08 JOHN H PAGE Has Been Urged to Make the Race to Succeed Himself The many friends of John H Page Clerk of the Jefferson Circuit Court have insisted on his making the race to suc ceed himself Although the election for this important office is a year off they believe in taking time by the forelock Mr Page has made an excellent clerk He has spent many years in the office as Deputy Clerk and during the last five years as Clerk He knows the business He is careful capable andobliging More than that lie has

Irishmon Must Unite For tiro Good of All Her People RECEIVED AN INTELLECTUAL TREAT The members of the four local divisions of the Ancient Order of Hibernians as sembled at Hibernian Hall Monday night and listened to an intellectual treat in the way of a lecture on Ireland Past Present and Future Possibilities The lecture was delivered by Rev Father Sullivan O P a distinguished orator of the Dominican order While each of the four divisions were well represented it is safe to say the crowd would have been doubled had the members known what to expect How ever the crowd was comfortably large and all present enjoyed the lecture Father Sullivan is not only a gifted speaker but has history at his fingers ends particularly Irish history He had the old story to tell but he told it in ia new and interesting way He made his auditors see and feel as well as hear He told of the centuries of Irelands wrongs and oppressions of her patriots and poets of her chieftains and priests It was indeed a splendid word picture He then told of the Ireland of today how the people were fighting against oppression and how the English Government was howling crime when there was nc crime in Ireland He told how in all these years Ireland had kept the faith Ireland and Austria alone ofall the nations of the earth were still true to the mother church Father Sullivan praised highly the great work that is being done by the United Irish league at the present time and told what a glorious gathering of men of the Irish race there would be in Boston in October He also recounted the number of times we hear people sneer at the Irish as an illiterate race Then he pointed out what Ireland had lone in furnishing to the world masters in church and State her great artists astronomers musicians poets scientists and men of letters Ireland has given great men to every country and her sons are peopling and evangelizing every quarter of the globe He bade the Irish peo pIe unite for the common good In union there is strength and unity is one of the cardinal principles of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Father Sullivan was applauded to the echo Very Rev Father Fowler O P pastor of St Louis Dertrauds church was called upon and made a brief address He talked principally in favor of the federa tion of Catholic societies He taid time had shown even in America what the Catholic societies could do when united and working for the common weal and when they were so united Catholics pros peredThomas P Walsh the well known attorney was called upon to voice the thanks of the Ancient Order of Hiber nians to Father Sullivan for his great lecture Mr Walsh made one of his usual stirring speeches in which lie said that he had often heard Irelands story but had never heard it so graphically n6r so eloquently told as it had been by father Sullivan Everybody left the hall pleased with the lecture and more pleased with the fact that he was a Hibernian and a mem- berof a society that fostered such Intel lectual entertainments RETREAT FOR FRANCISCANS A retreat for the priests of the Franciscan order of this diocese is in progress at- St Bonifaces Convent at Jackson and Green streets The retreat
