of Good v Willa Thoughts Suggested to a Rev orend Clergyman nt This i Joyous Season1 r ro An Infinite Offense Made Necessary An Infinite Atone ment USB MEANS GOD PROVIDES OS On next Thursday we will again be called upon to celebrate in an especial manner these joyful tidings announced by the angels for on this day a Savior was born unto us who is Christ the Lord in the city of David This happy event for which the world waited during that long period of 4000 years has at last become a reality and that which the Prophet Isaias foretold of the coming of a Redeemer has been accomplished For a child is born to us and a son is given unto us and the government is upon his shoulders and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor God the Mighty the lather of the World to Come the Prince of Peace His empire shall be multiplied and there shall be no end of peaceIs ix 67 Nineteen hundred years have passed and gone since the fulfillment of this prophecy of Isaiass in the birth of a God Man Jesus Christ whose advent into the world threw open the gates of heaven so long closed against the human race on account of the disobedience of our first parents in eating of the forbidden fruit For in the beginningwhen God made man he made him to his own image and likeness and placed him in a paradise of pleasure under certain restrictions that he could partake offeverything therein except the tree of knowledge of good and evil and he commanded him not to eat of this tree under penalty of death not only for himself but also for his posterity What followed is known to the whole Christian world Our first parents Adam and Eve did eat of the forbidden tree they were Jcast putofparadise heavens gates were i1 ciosedAj kalnst them and they were con emned death 1 ior was ihts Pun ishment to affect them alone No it must necessarily extend itself to the whole human race For as Adam was made the procurator of the whole human race and as in obeying God the whole human race would receive the reward promised so also in the disobedience of Adam the whole human race were sub jected to the same punishment as Adam himself But perhaps some one will say this offense of Adam was light when compared with the punishment yet if we only cousider that Adam was consti tuted in the state of sanctifying grace that he was free from concupiscence sorrow and death gifts undue to his nature we can easily see how he could have conformed himself to Gods com rtaandand thereby merited eternal glory Adam did not do this but on the con trary he withdrew his allegiance to God vfor some created object and criminal pleasure and gave a blind preference to t the creature thereby committing a grave offense against Goda crime which t could not be atoned for Unless by the incarnation of some divine person if We syppose that God wished the satisfaction to be in proportion to the infinite offense given to him by Adam A finite crea ture such as man could never satisfy for an infinite offense and hence it was that God the Father thus ordained that rthls his only begotten Son Jesus Christ whose nativity we are about to celebrate should come down from Heaven from the bosom of his Eternal Father with whom he was coeternal and coexisting- in order that he might redeem us and i reconcile us with his Heavenly Father from whom we were estranged by the sin tf Adam Oh how incomprehensible is the llove manifested in this mystery A God the creator of all things descending from Heaven and taking upon himself human nature with its infirmities in order to become our friend and brother Nay he even permitted himself to be born of an humble Virgin in a stable at Bethlehem where there was neither heat nor comfort but rather the dampand chilly air of a cold Decembers night r Was this all this sweet baby had to endure No the clothes in which his tender body was wrapped were poor swaddling clothes What would the people of our own time say were such a thing to occur In a civilized community Would they not consider it cruel and barbarous under the circumstances if tt effort was made to make both mother and child comfortable Yet this was what happened to the babe Jesus and his Virgin mother born in Bethlehem ina state of poverty and abjection He r + jsiose birth was celebrated by a multitude of the Heavenly army praising God and singing Glory to God on high peace on earth to men of good will was born without any external pomp He by whom the angels praise the majesty of the Almighty tether whom the domina tions adore the powers hold in awe the heavens and the virtues of the heavens s read the blessed seraphim celebrate with unitedt iay He WM sot decorated witht liny title thaf could distinguish film fromIIt u U 14 other men He whose name was above all others for at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow whether in heaven or in earth or in hell and who alone had power to inscribe the names of his elect in the great book of life permitted his own to be inscribed among the most obscure of the subjects of Caesar None paid homage to him unless simple and ignorant shepherds although every cre Med thing was dependent on him In a word everything that was calculated to confound human pride was exhibited at his birth And why was it that this babe permitted himself to suffer such igno minks It was because he wished on account of his infinite love for man to teach us from his cradle the love of poverty of mortification of humility and this being that true peace to man and that true glory to God which was proclaimed by the angels to the shepherds Glory to God on high and peace on earth to men of good will That glory which proud and ignorant man had tried to usurp for himself is now secured to God through the infant Jesus and that peace which man had hitherto been a stranger is now secured to him if he will only use the means within his power to acquire it that is prayer and the sacra ments This done we may be sure that God will bless us and make our Christmas a merry one and our New Year one of happiness EARNEST WORKERS Elected by Branch 4 Catholic Knights and Ladles of America Branch 4 Catholic Knights and Ladies of America held its annual election of

Even the infidel if it is possible that such a creature has ever existed must enter into himself at this joyous period of the year and say in his inmost heart There must be a God and His promise of peace on earth good will towards wen is being fulfilled Here there and everywhere people are hurrying and scurrying in search of presents for their children and friends and kindred This custom has become so universal in America at least that even the Jews send presents to their Christian friends on Christmas day socalledsoUllessscorporations keys or money tto their employs Of nIi course these generous corporations ate exceptions rather than the rule But there are corporations and even combines that go further By accident a representative of this paper heard that the Brewers Exchange was preparing Christmas donations for a number of charitable institutions He investigated and found out that not only were liberal donations ready to be forwarded to all the Catholic institutions like St Anthonys lies pital St Vincents and St Josephs orphan asylums and the Little Sifters of the Poor but to every Protestant charit able institution and even to the Rescue Mission and other places of a similar character Now this is as it should be These institutions are all doing good work and any help extended them will be properly appreciated By the way Col John H Whallen and fiis brother James P Whallen every year give away thousands of dollars worth of Christmas presents This year their expense account for Christmas gifts to various charitable institutions friends and employes amounts to 7000 and it is given cheerfully The Lord lovcth a cheerful giver VERY ELABORATE Musical Programmes Being Arranged For Christ mas Day The Christmas music at all the Catho lie churches this year will be

the Redeemer and his teachings were of peace love and charity among men The vanity avarice and passions of man hadamidarrayed every man against his brother The world was a scene of blood and carnage to the satiety of ambition and greed armies of con quest slaughtered pillaged and destroyed all Man sought only the gratification of passionrevenge and power to that end only by fire and sword Peace love and char ity characteristics distinguishing man above the brute were second rejected as ignoble and debasing for women and imbeciles This was the noblest of Gods creaturesTj Tjmanbut God had been rejected for gotten Man worshiped his pas sions generating envy and hate for his fellows instead of love and sym pathy for the children of one Father c and sought tIle gratification of de basing lust rather than the joys of eternity for which he had been created Peace alone could save man from extermination on earth as well as eternal lossrestore him to the attributes of his being the real ization and attainment of the pur pose of his creation From the birth of Christ dates mans salvation from brutal depravity as well as eternal perdition And from His birth He and His disciples were per secuted and their destruction sought not that they preached peace and love but because they were believed to be of another king dons Which man in his vanity could not realize was not of this world i conquestsireplete with lasting blessings to t man have been those of the lone missionary with no other weapon than the cross preaching Christ and Him Crucified conquer ing the nations to peace love and t charity To the Redeemer is man indebted for his restoration to his true status in life advancement and pleasures of peace love and i elei vation in aspirations to the pure ChristianJcivilization the beacon light to all men of good will the gaol of earthly and eternal happiness How meet then that we should rejoice on the anniversary of the birth of Him who preached suf fered and died for this boon to man kind And let us rejoice in that spirit of peace love andcharity becoming the disciples of Christ the Savior of the world Hail thou ever blessed morn Hail redemptions happy dawn Sing through all Jerusalem Sing to the Babe of Bethlehem WILL WE HAVE WAR It seems so we are sorry to say Under pretense of enforcing collec tion of claims after prearrange ment with the United States Gov eminent r then in violation of the v pretense and prearrangement with out formal declaration or notice of warlike intent Great Britain and Germany send war vessels to Venezuela blockade its ports sieze and destroy its vessels and bombard its towns The United States Government politely but firmly demanded an explanation a definition of whet Great Britain terms a peaceful blokade especially since it has assumed all the phases of actual war That explanation must be U jjiven those warlike acts must be stopped or at least testri ted within bounds fthe preliminary pledge given the United States Government or Unclel Same will have ton n f reach for his blunderbus give orders instead of polite notes and enforce his orders with shot and shell if necessary No power or powers can be allowed to bunco or bully the United States especially on this continent Our selfrespect honor interests and safety forbid it and all Governments must and will be made to fully understand and appreciate this fact Englands duplicity is already manifest In Parliment in reply to Mr Healy Mr Balfour speak ing for the Government said there could be no such thing as a peace ful blockade in war and there was no need ofa declaration of war when a state of war existed This reply was evasive besides an admission that the preliminary pledge given the United States was a mere pretense and had been vio lated Germany has not been heard from If Balfours state ment is indicative of the course to be pursued the United States is liable to be in at it any moment The failure to give satisfactory answers to the United States diplo matic notes and discontinue a war like blockade of the Venezuelan coast leaves the United States but one course Admiral Dewey with a fleet of American war vessels is in the vicinity and a telegraphic flash will give him instructions if indeed he has not already received them American merchant vessels are en route to Venezuelan ports Will they be denied entrance by British or German war vessels If sothen CONSIDER AND PROTECT The river interests as well as others should be considered and protected but neither the river interest nor any other should be allowed to retard progress of transportation facilities for developing trade and adding to public conveni ence of which this city and State are in need It is such obstructive pleas that have kept us to the tail end of the procession and the river interests have generally led the opposition Of course if the electric railway can be given a right of way into the city without inconveniencing the river interests it should be so arranged if not the river interests like other folks ought to be compelled to submit for the general welfare Every change in methods and routes interferes with the comfort and business of somebody While the rights of all should be duly considered too much regard hes been given indi vidual and special interests in this State to the detriment of the de velopment of industries and trade the progress and benefit of the general public The greatest good to the greatest number is the pro per policy and this necesserily requires sacrifice by the lesser number KEEP UP THE PUSH That competition makes trade is being proven in the local news paper field The advent of the HeraldCommercial with its new managers and outfit producing an upto date paper has caused all the other daily papers to get a hustle on There is a boom in newspaper dom the first for these many years and the public are furnished com plete and beautiful specimens of the printing art that they did not imagine could be turned out here The afternoon papers of Saturday and the morning papers of Sunday are but the beginning all are ar ranging for more improvement of which the people generally will reap the benefit Louisville is the home of many of the most com r petent newspaper men in every department who have heretofore left to find remunerative employ ment in other cities Keep up the push and we will be able to keep our best men here besides induc ing some of the boys to return and settle down in their Old Kentucky Home- REVERSED AS EXPECTED The Court of Appeals has re versed the judgments of the second trials of Powers and Howard con victed of complicity in the Goebel murder Whatever may be ones opinion of the guilt or innocence of the accused these reversals are no surprise Such setting aside of the verdicts was expected and pre dicted when Judge Cantrill who had presided at the first trials in sisted on presiding at the second trials despite the motions and pro tests of ths defensethe chief ground of reversal in the first trials being Jude Cantrills arbitrary rulings and conduct To this was added his subsequent public utter ances regarding the cases Under such circumstancec most judges would have declined to preside at the second trials especially if objected to by attorneys in the case The Street Railway Company is catching it as usual with every spell of bad weather which im presses upon the public the short comings of the street car service These inefficiencies and lacking are numerous and well known The Louisville people are patient but they can not help kicking at per sistent neglect and perversity by public corporations that violate their promises as well as the law Why is the company not compelled to observe its charter and regard the needs of the people Too many public officials seem to be quasi Directors of the street railway that is they seem to have much to say abont who is employed how things are to be run and what the interests of the company require instead of the provisions of the charter or the interest of the pub lie Hence in their official capacity they vote or act accordingly For instance a meeting of the City Council to act on an ordinance the Railway Company opposed failed because a quorum did not show up And there are others Why public officials serve corporations instead of the public who elect them is a conundrum that may be solved some day In the meantime the people can grumble wait for and push into the crowded carsthe Street Rail way Company is boss A poor man has no show in this country now IIwe are fre quently told Results however prove differently Our most prom inent men in wealth politics man ufactures the professions army and navy began as poor boys The only new member in the Ohio Congressional delegation is A H Jackson from the Sandusky dis trict who began life peddling shoe strings through the northern part of Illinois Indiana and Ohio He became rich but to the people he has ever been the same Jackson the shoestring peddler Despite his wealth and prominence he never denied nor is he ashamed of his humble start in life During the campaign he promised his con stituents to devote the same energy and attention to duty as a Con gressman that he lid to selling shoestrings Whatever justification may be pleaded for seizure of Venezuelan vessels by British warshipsclearly- an act ofwarwithout a declara tion of war or even notice of hostile iptent certainly no defense ca- nbeset up for the sinking of the captured vessels It smacks of the old time filibuster and piracy days in violation of international equity and the rules of civilized warfare England charges the act to the Germans the Germans deny it and both Governments declare such vandalism as in violation of positive orders to their naval officers The Venezuelan report says the vessels were taken out of La Guayra harbor and sunk by the British cruuer Retribution u n D n The evidence before the Arbitra tion Commission shows the anthra cite operators to be a very queer kind of divinely commissioned guardian of the destinies of the laboring man As the labor unions do not claim a divine commission they are pardonable for lack of reverence ior such pro cedures as 1longton weight to the miner enslaving of children filching the pittance earned by widows and cripples In fact workingmen are so ignorant and perverse as to utterly deny such divine commissions The deadlock in the School Board over the election of Presi dent and the consequent tieup of all business has excited comment as to the cause As School Trustees t receive no salary and it is supposed there is no politics in school matters the unitiated are mystified The milk in the cocoa nut is the President names the committees andwell a promi nent politician remarked he would rather be the Chairman of the Finance or Building Committee of the School Board than President of a bank I Our readers will greatly favor the Kentucky Irish American by patronizing those business men and merchants who have so liberally filled its columns To our readers and advertisers one and all we extend the greet ings of the season May you all be here

all and most of all to his wife Ifa woman exhibits her good breeding in treatment of a stranger or of her friends and acquaintances she should the more display it lu her rela tions with her husband and children If gentle regard for the feeling and the little rights of others is requisite anywhere it is most of all obligatory in the home The slippered ease of our own household does not relieve us from the restraints upon selfish manifestations which outside so ciety imposes Because we are free to dp as we please in the home it affords the beet test of the reality of our good breed lug God jls

about the old men boost the young men He was honest and sincere He meant well but we who have Irish blood in our veins can not forget the old men You have had an Irish father so have I Is it possible that we can at any stage of the game of life forget our good Irish fathers Whether they be dead or living they areas dear to us as when we were first fondled in their arms when they sang for us Irish songs and told us the fairy stories of Ireland when they told us of the mighty work of St Patrick St Columbcille St Boniface St Brigid St Dymphna and the hosts of other good men and women who Ibved Ireland and loved our holy mother church Boost the young men and forget your Irish fathers stories of an ODonnell a Clare a Sarsfield an Emmett a Tone a Parnell Oh no Do you remember your first lessons in United States history and how your father helped you out with tales of saucy Jack Barry of Sullivan of Mad Anthony Wayne of Moylan of Montgomery Didnt they tell you of Phil Kearney and Gen Shields and OHara and later of Sheridan and Corcoran and Clebnrne and a host of others Nol Nol Dont forget the old men that have held up these patriots to- Ut as models of patriotism- An Irish father is next to an Irish motherthe best friend any one can have Sometimes the motherdies then the griefstricken father has to i both mother and father in caring for hisI little ones Some childish ailment at tacks his boy and the good father asI gently as he can ministers to the child but the poor boy is restless and thei father gently caresses him as he whispers My boy you miss your mother now dont you Give us the old fashioned Irish fathers who care as much for the purity of their sons as of their daughters and the young IrishAmericans will take care of themselves Would the sons of the late James and William OConnor John Shelley Charles Byrne or of the living Pat Bannon Bar ney Campbell Mike J Duffy John H Whallen James Hickey Thomas Cam field and others of their kind like to know that

character has blossomsfeet There are lives that bear the pain and bidden memorials of such a grief through long years making them sadat heart even when walking in sweetest sunshine Or it may be the failure of some other hope as when one has followed a bright dream of ambition for days and years finding it only a dream Or it may be the keener more bitter grief which comes to one when a friend proves untrue or disgraces himself The anguish which love endures for others sins is among the saddest of earths sorrows If we knew the inner life of many of the people we meet we would be very gentle with them and would excuse the things in them that seem strange or eccentric to us They are carrying burdens of secret grief START THE DAY RIGHT Speak kindly in the morning it light ens the cares of
