of Our Fathers Is the Rov Father Albert StrooboleS i Minister and His Congregation Received Into theTrno Churchti Worthy Missionary Expects to Establish a Health Resort COMING TO THE UNITED STATES Rev Father Albert formerly pastor of St Augustines church in this city and now on the mission in the islands of South America has written another interesting letter to the Kentucky Irish American It is dated at Old Providence Island Colombia South America His letter is in part as follows liMy last communication to the Ken tucky Irish American from St Andrews Island as the readers no doubt remem ber was rather of a discouraging char acter on account of the great impediments put in the way of converting the natives of that island to the Catholic faith by reason of the bad example and scandalous life thefew dozens of nominal Catholics of Spanish descent are giving and have been giving for years The readers will therefore asI do myself the more readily appreciate the spirit pi the natives of Old Providence Island as manifested by them last February when I visited the island for the first time No less did they show the same friendly spirit toward me at this my secondvisit liThe Rev Ensibro Howard of the Bethel Baptist church who shortly be fore my present visit had spent a week with me at St Andrews in order to learn and see a little more about the Catholic belief invited me to cone to his church and stay for some time ex plaining the Catholic doctrine as his people were desirous of not belonging to the prejudiced class often met with among Protestants I had previously sent him several Catholic books which he decided had opened his eyes and made him take the first step in the right direc tion in searching for the true faith After holding services in his church for 14ree weeks celebratlsjtfl ilsi temorning and preac log a sertnbtl ni tOe evening the pastor and the major part ofI his congregation were received into the Catholic churchon Sunday December 7 On the following day the feast of theI Immaculate Conception I baptized the children of many members of the congregation This happy event was brought to a close by fireworks and the illumina tion of the little town of Isabella liThe only regret of the new converts was that I could not remain with them as I had to return to St Andrews Island where a number of converts is to be received into the church on Christmas day Most of them are young people If fad will be baptized before the midnight mass III entertain the hope that all the people of Old Providence Island will gradually convince themselves that a priest has come among them for their own good both temporally and spirit ually Their eyes unless they be totally blinded will be opened when they see how by the endeavors of the Catholic priest their children will receive a better education particularly in regard to morality and the public will be benefited by a hospital or health resort which I intend to establish as soon as I return from a contemplated trip to the United States where I expect to make collec tions for these missions I have already received the necessary permission to snake the trip from the Archbishop of CartagenaSI have made several trips afoot over this island climbing the highest peaks and following the brooks that flow from the steep mountains I have found several excellent spots for my proposed health resort and the owners of land have told me I was welcome to acres of it Such generosity I did not find 01 St Andrews Island Indeed I could not buy a piece of land there I intend to leave for the United States during January and expect to see many of my old friends in Louisville I may even extend my collection tour to the conti nent of Europe I firmly hope to find some priests who are willing to share with me my labors in these islands I also hope to secure several young men from a college or seminary who for the love of God and the salvation of souls will be willing to come into these mis sions to assist the priests I wish all my old friends in Louisville a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New YearFATHER ALBERT STROBBEIB RESULTSiIOwing to the watchfulness of Detective Sexton and Officers Hogan

thrpughits able and unprejudiced correspondent Guy Cramer continues to keep up its good work in behalf of the laud of Ireland for the Irish peopfeltIr Cramers last letter deals with the boycott and is dated from Tallow Road County Waterfprd Ireland December 8 In part he says If the Irish land trouble with its age old never ending relentless fight be tween tenants and landlords is not soon settled by the British Government Ire land must continue on its course of ruin and degradation from which In that event R it is possible for conditions to reach a worse degree than the present it would Seem that only Providence will be able to find a remedy for the islands ultimate salvation Ifthelnnclwnr is allowed to go on if the tenantry are not given a hearing as to their demands for the right to purchase their cramped acres and abolish landlord ism and dual ownership then the reign of relentless coercion with its imprison ment of men and women must go On for the Irish peasant will keep up the swing of his one weapon of warfare the boycott And it is this practice which the present coercion rule with its im prisonment of more than a dozen Irish members of Parliament has failed to blot out in the least The peasants and their leaders have found that the boycott is theone Weapon they can wield with dreadful effectLSo accustomed have they become to its use thanks to English Disregard of their hopes and demands and toa century of English misrule that a halfdozen hint ing words is all that is needed to work titeirMisR certE 1ction on JM1t JL M women in their midst whotoppose their wishesThe boycott as it is applied in Ireland may be cruel It is There can be not the least argument to the contrary Busi ness ruin family suffering even starva tion have been the marks along its course But the Irish tenants have learned that if their cries are ever to be heard they must use the fighting power which comes to their hands Ireland created the boycott and gave that method of warfare its name The Irishman has been taught by Englands course of government that any ameliora tion of existing conditions must be see cured even though the relief has been but the smallest by force or illegal acts The laws in the main which govern Ire land were enacted for the landlords benefit not for the peasants good What terrible effect boycotting may carry is found in the town of Tallow a few miles drive from the railway station at Tallow road More than twenty years ago the trouble had its source though the more important chapters of the struggle have been enacted within the last three years determined fight has been kept up on one business man who with much justice on his side bought the acres from which a family bad been evicted The mans business has been ruined The town has been under police rule During recent months you meet more policemen in the deserted streets than civilians The town which had a population of near a thousand Li now being practically sold at auction Its business has been killed The streets at noonday have taken on the appearance of a cemetery Poverty has raised its bead Families have been compelled to move away Commercial travelers never go near the place now while a few years ago it was a thriving business center The town is dead Its life has been killed out and all by the boycott When the Irish peasant turns the boy cott on his foe there is seldom any quar ter There is one act he will not forgive If a new comer takes up the holding from which a tenant has been evicted without making a full and most liberal agreement with the evicted man for his tenant righta right which the landlord does not always recognize that man is marked to become pariah His neigh bors pass him on the highway without a word of greeting They refuse to speak to him at church His children are jeered as the children ofuland grabber if they go to the national schools If a member of the family dies no one at tends the funeral A man who is hit by the boycqtt becomes an outcast He is ostracized under an unwritten rule which is unrelenting If he tradee at a store that store is marked and customers go elsewhere The storekeeper must refuse to sell to the pariah or suffer loss

CITY TAX LEVY We are having the annual howl over the city tax levy which is an increase of twentyseven cents on the 100 No one likes high taxes but there are many things LoWs ville sorely needs and the prelim inary to getting them is to provide the money It will be time enough to howl if the money is not pro perly expended and the people given what they are taxed for Suggestions as to public expendi tures and conduct of city affairs would be far more appropriate and beneficial than protest and slurs and would show the proper public spirit to really better the peoples condition and advance the citys interest But then partisanism generally prompts these objections and attacks nORTQAOES AND PROSPERITY Debt is generally accepted as proof of adversity depression and insolvency and on that basis the American people should be the t thetworld for he who does not owe somebody is the exception not the rule But the American people individually and as a nation are the most successful prosperous and best pay Logical conclusions from official statistics are the re verse of the true condition Pig ures do not lie but by the usual method of analysis do not give a correct result This knocks the calamity prognostications of statis- ticalt orators and authors who do not realize that the American peo ple are an anomaly in many things The labor Jless earires rid and waste more are heaviest debtI kffdened pay more promptly live better are most progressive and are getting richer year by year than any nation Mortgages usually regarded as evidence of financial embarassment cover individuals firms corporations municipalities counties States and the General Government A deplorable condition fraught with disaster and ruin I So figure European financiers and echo our economist reformers But mort gages do not indeed rarely mean that in the United States On the contrary strange as it seems these mortgages indicate progress and prosperity Investigation in con nection with the census of 1900 show that only 5 per cent of the mortgages were to pay debts or due to adversity of the mortgager 95 per cent being to raise ready money for improvement or exten sion of industry and commerce No wonder the foreigner can not upierstand the American and that our economists who stick to statis tics and logical principles have their deductions disproved by actual results THE RIGHT WAY We condemn the street car company when deserved and we give it credit when deserved Its grant ing an increase in wages to em ployes is liberal and applies to all thus dealing justly to all It is r one cent per hour a substantial in crease in a month or year But the most praiseworthy factis that this action of the company indicates the kindly relations of the company and its employes resulting from the peaceful settlement of the dis agreement about a year agog that threatened a strike Prominent labor unionists and businessmen advised otherwise and their advice was followed by the employes and the company Pledges then given baye been complied with to date and there ii coafidence that all willI a be in due time We trust the em ployes who were suspicious of the company and the company which had a bad opinion of labor unions have both learned that mutual re spect confidence fairness and con ference is the best way to prevent as well as settle labor troubles CHAOTIC The Venezuela matter is still in a somewhat chaotic state despite the agreement of all to arbitrate It is evident that England and Germany purpose to bunco the United States and it is equally clear that they will not succeed The United States is not involved in the dispute and rightly insists that the questions at issue shall not be so construed as to affect the United States or its policy Eng land and Germany must settle their trouble with Venezuela with out violating or ignoring any American policy or precedent the Monroe doctrine included The United States will concede nothing nor assume any obligations finan cial or otherwise In Great Britain labor union have no legal status nor does a workman seem to have any rights employers are bound to respect this is demonstrated when the law is appealed to Recently we

conspiracy its orders and acts illegal and jjudgments aggregating 140 DCO in favor of employers are af firmed This in civilized Great Britain in the twentieth century Magna Charta does not apply to working people Unfortunately for Baer and the divinely com missioned miners grievances are not settled in that ancient feudal Istic fashion in the United States where even the miner is the equal of the employer before the law and labor unions have tthe same status and rights as employers associations When the public are invited to attend receptions and ceremonials- at the orphan asylums and institu tions it is not sufficient to give the date and location This is no longer a village and the general public do not know where suburban streets are or how to get there For instance the reception at St Vincents Orphan Asylum last Sun day was attended by several hun dred instead of thousands as it should be The asylum is on Payne street But where is Payne street The public do not know

beauty to every scene MOST IRISH CITY If one is looking for the most Irish city in America the seatch can end at Waterbury Conn which is ready to de fend the title with figures fists or hisses Out of a population of 60000 from 27000 to 30000 arc Irish or of Irish descent They predominate in municipal affairs and their societies are the strongest in the city It is one of the few cities in the country where Gaelic is taught In night schools INWARD SPIRIT The assurance that one is doing right that one is acting according to ones con science is conductive of that sunshine in the soul which no shadow can obscure from shining The girl who has the courage to do or say what is right is the one with the lightest heart for rest assured nothing can possibly make the heart more heavy than a lack of moral selfassertion Inane natures never did amount to anything What does that prayer to God amount to if one is not willing to go forth and work for God after ill Unless the motive be sincere the action will be void and unless the heart be true it can not be happy To the woman who wants to possess a charming manner I would say Be inwardly what you would appear to be outwardly and the genuineness of your character can not fail to throw a halo of beauty around you- AVOID TILE RIFTS As a rule women are more unselfish than men but very often they lack the right kind of consideration for their hus bands They will treasure up all the cares and worriments of the day for the husbands ears when they come home at night probably feeling weary and tired If the husband appears unsympathetic lie wife will imagine herself a much injured person Then follows the little rift in the lute that destroys the sweet harmony of the home The woman who makes home happy and who is always pleasing in her husbands eyes is the one I wno exercises those two indispensable qualities tact and cheerfulness Speak- Ing mildly the woman who nags has precious little loveliness in her character Her husband deserves the greatest sym pathy for certainly the man with a I nagging wife has an unhappy lot A woman is only increasing her husbands faults when she is forever depleting them l to him

member and former President of Mackin Council Y M I He is happily married and has one child The home which he has won by his popularity comes as a fitting trib ute to a modest energetic and capable gentleman But that is not all Vincent Smith is responsible in a great measure for the handsome appearance of the Ken tucky Irish American This paper has been since its first number remarkable for its presswork nnd this is because Mr Smith takes an interest in his work He believes that if anything is worth doing at all it is worth doing well The same spirit prevailed in him when he decided to enter

this way will not only be remedial but will furnish sustenance so that very little food will be required and the stomach can rest No one ought to rush through life in a perfect turmoil of work and business and those who do almost invariably have themselves to blame They probably are such slaves to duty that not content with doing their own they feel morally re sponsible for the duties of others Large quantities of fat taken with food causes indigestion tile fat forming a thin film about the particles of food In some instances nevertheless fat aids diges tion Thus the addition of butter and cream to a roasted potato renders it less liable to form into lumps in the stomach It is well known that oatmeal and bran have a most softening influence upon the skin and if there is roughness it

Crooks sent the money and when the blankety blank old skinflint gets the letter of thanks the womaull write him hell drop dead with surprise Crooks was one of Mackays part ners and was even more noted for his stinginess than Mackay for his gener osityAnyway I took Mackays check and sent it to old lady Peters And I told her that the money came from John Mackay The next morning I was walk ing down
