i Girl Heartless Mother ts Backed by Women of tho Liberty League Judge Caruth Lays Down tho Law lit No Uncertain Terms HORRIBLE REVELATIONS IN COURT The Kentucky Irish American has from its first number been a family news paper and its editor has tried always to leave out of its columns even a sem blance of the filth that is frequently found in the less circumspect daily journals Occasionally desperate dis eases require heroic remedies and as a case in point attention is called to the attempt of Mrs Hattie Nuckols who on Tuesday last attempted through habeas corpus proceedings to secure the release of her sixteenyearold daughter Martha Nuckols from the Convent of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd Over a year ago Martha Nuckols had been placed under the care of these good women who are doing a noble work Martha had been found in a disreputable locality and in company with a man of bad character She on account of her apparent tender years was arrested and brought into court Judge Reuben Buckley who is not a Catholic was at that time Judge of the Police Court He assessed a flue and workhouse sentence in lieu of which the girl was turned over to the Childrens Board of Guardians who committed her to the care of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd She has been in that institution more than a year and as she herself testified has been well cared for and well treated Her mother it seems at the earnest solicitation of others undertook to secure her release Every evidence pointed to the fact that the mother only desired her daughters release in order that the girl might enter upon a life of shame and that the mother might live through the profits of her = j II daghteriaiprostitutioneeThe by W T Burch the attorney for the Womens Liberty League an organiza tion akin to the A P A Mr Burch recently it will be remembered got in bad with the Louisville Bar Association on account of questionable transactions in the practice of his profession Alder man James J Fitzgerald represented the Sisters The case was up before Judge Asher G Caruth of the Criminal Divi sion of the Jefferson Circuit Court The evidence showed that Mrs Nuckols was the mother of six children three boys and three girls that she had caused the boys to be committed to the Louisville Industrial School of Reform that she had caused her husband to be sent to the penitentiary where he now is on the charge of committing an unmen tionable offense and that her two elder girls were now living lives ofshame Mrs Nuckols attempted to prove that her daughter was nineteen years ofage and introduced in evidence a copy of the Bible on one leaf of which was written the alleged date of the birth of her daughter Martha She declined to state why the dates of the births of the other children were not put down Mr Fitz gerald took the book and upon opening it discoverd that it was printed in 1899 This was knockout blow Mrs Nuckols then stated that the writing had been done on Tuesday morning She refused to say whose handwriting it was During the hearing of the case Mrs Nuckols and her attorney Burch were given the moral support of Dr D T Smith and several women of the Liberty League Judge Caruth promptly refused the writ and returned the girl to the care of the Sisters In passing on the case Judge Caruth said In this case it was shown that the mother of Martha Nuckols had brought into the world six children three boys and three girls The boys on her peti tion stating that she could not control them were committed to the School of Reform and are now in that institution Of the three girls twoare prostitutes and inmates of houses of illfame The re= maining child Martha Nuckols when of tender years was sent by the mother repeatedly to the places where her other daughters were plying their occupation in the most disreputable quarters of the city to get money from her sisters for thee support of the familythe mother thus living on the prostitution of the daugh ters One midnight this child Martha was arrested in the redllght district in company with a man under such circum stances as warranted her detention upon a charge of disorderly conduct On the trial in the Police Court the extreme pen alty of the law for this offense viz 20 fine and a bond of 1000 for twelve months was fixed But on the intervention r of some charitable citizens in lieu of this judgment the court committed her to the custody of the Board of Chil drens Guardians as under the statute it had a right to do The Board of Chil drenlI Guardians placed her under the care of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd She IB now at St Xavlers OH Bank ra Cl street and well cared for It is com plained that the mother being a Baptist and the institution in which her daughter is confined being conducted by a Sister hood of the Roman Catholic church she should be returned to the mother The mother has shown herself totally in capable of raising her children in moral courses This is not a question of re ligion but of humanity This is the only institution in the city devoted to the care and reformation of fallen women and which places around young girls its protecting walls and prevents them from entering upon lives of shame All good people of every creed should encourage this great and charitable work I would be guilty of a crime if I took this young girl away from the control and influence of these good Sisters and gave her to this unworthy mother I will not do this The response to this writ is held sufficient and the writ is dis missedJudge Caruth is to be commended for the stand he took in this case He is not a Catholic nor did he act through the influence of any Catholic or set of Catholics He acted the part of a humane man who desires to save a fellow creature from moral destruction START OFF RIGHT Catholic Business Womens Club Issues Certificates- to Members The general meeting in the interest of the Catholic Business Womens Club at St Francis Hall last Tuesday night brought out a large representation from nearly all the churches in the city Attorney Thomas Walsh who presided announced that the club had been incor porated and was now working under the laws of Kentucky Owing to the fact that the Sprague building on Walnut street was still occu pied by the Polytechnic Society it was impossible to set a definite time for the public opening of the club It is the in tention to have all necessary alterations made and the house completely furnished and equipped before being thrown open When this is done due announcement will be made in these columns and through the daily press Mrs Maggie Judge the President was present and with Miss Lizzie Glenn dis tributed quite a number of membership cetificaees It might be well here to re peat that membership is only a dollar a year which small sum hundreds will contribute to help the worthy enterprise Membership and subscription books numbered and sealed were placed In the trends la isfrourallpMtHflJtccit and all who can should join now Henceforth the business of the club will be conducted by the officers and the Board of Directors therefore the general meeting adjourned sine die after having accomplished all that could have been reasonably expected The club has started off right its affairs being in cow tent hands and all that remains is to give it the suppot it deserv- esSPIRITED MEETING Hibernians of Limerick Out In Large Numbers This Week Not for a long time have the Limerick Hibernians who largely compose the membership of Division 4 turned out in greater numbers than on last Wednesday night The meeting was spirited from the moment President Hennessy took the chair until adjournment Several questions of vital importance were warmly debated and the flow of oratory was in teresting especially to the visitors Good judgment prevailed however and noth ing definite will be done until all have had time to duly consider the questions now pending The applications of Pat Fllben and John Doolan were received and Lee Osborne andjohn Feeley were elected to membership This makes an unusually large class awaiting the degrees of the order and when all the returns are in the membership will be well on the way to the 300 mark Upon motion it was decided to have a general Initiation on Wednesday evening February 25 for which the degree team will make ample preparation As this will occur within the season of Lent there will be no festivities of any character but the admission of the new members will be appropriately celebrated some time after Easter Division 4 is making splendid progress due to the energy and seal of its experienced officers who will always be found true Hibernians DEATH OF JOHN L RAVERTY John L Raverty Sr one of the most esteemed citizens of New Albany died at his home on North Pearl street in that city on Sunday night He died a victim of paralysis Mr Raverty was stricken with this dread ailment on Thanksgiving day 1901 a few mouths later

Leniency Shown o tho Part of Great Britain Coercion Proclamation Has Been Revoked in Thir teen Districts Sir Anthony McDonnells Bold ness to Haughty Lord Ashbourne THE PEOPLE ARE MORE HOPEFUL Irishmen the world over are watching with interest every movement of the United Irish League and the Nationalists in Parliament The people of the Green Isle were never so united and hopeful as now and not without reason therefor The Dublin correspondent of the St Louis Globe Democrat cables that the Governments revocation of the coercion proclamation in thirteen districts and the release of a number of coercion prisoners among whom are several mem bers of Parliament is considered proof that the Government intends adopting milder policy toward Ireland Appar enlly the Government has found a policy of conciliation will be more effective than a policy of proscription Agrarian crimes have almost ceased and people are hopeful that the next session of Parliament will pass a popular and equit able land bill The new policy of the Government is attributed to the influ ence of Sir Anthony McDonnell recently appointed Under Secretary to Ireland McDonnell made a reputation as adminis trator in India and knows Irelandand Irish people lIe has the courage of his convictionsRecently in discussing Ireland with the haughty Lord Ashbornc Irish Lord Chancellor he was asked his opinion of the causes of the difficulties in Ireland McDonnell replied Threequarters of the Irish troubles are caused by official ism Ashbourne who is the personifi cation of Irish officialism was almost speechless at McDonnells heresy His lordship gasped It is extraordinary you should say that to me McDonnell re plied Not at all I have said it to men byggeritbiiiawoa riiAehbonrvt l+tasldere d this the climax of absurdity Who might he be Ashbourne inquired incredu lously The King retorted McDonnell It is well known in London that McDonnells appointment was asked for by the King The Government recently forbade the people of Castlebar from using the town hall for political meetings The people retaliated by declining to vote funds for the maintenance of the hall which is consequently unlighted unheated and uncleaned William OBrien has gone to Castlebar to induce the public to acquiesce in the Governments desires I GENUINE WELCOME Given Mr George Perry Mon day Night by SatollI Council Satolli Council Y M I held another good meeting last Monday evening there being only standing room in their large hall President Harry Colgan called the meeting to order and in his usual businesslike manner conducted the ceremonies One candidate was an nounced ready for initiation who went through the trying ordeal displaying great fortitude and courage This young man was Joseph Leniban Mr Leni han was warmly congratulated on his entrance into the Y M I and the council is also to be congratulated- The feature of the evening was the entertainment which was given to George Perry in honor of his arrival home His entrance into the hall was the signal for a burst of applause After the regular business was finished the council went into social session with John Coady railroad magnate and con temporary of J Pierpont Morgan in the chair Chairman Coady called for a rising vote of welcome to Mr Perry and In response he thanked the members for their generous welcome He said he was glad to be back in his old Kentucky home about which he thought of and longed for as all good Kentuckians do when they leave their native soil His eloquence was very touching Chairman Coady next called on the Poet Laureate of Satolli William J OSullivan who read one of his characteristic poems called Moonbeams which was something in the nature of a caricature in words of the different members present John Crotty told his ghost story for the benefit of the new members the old ones being very familiar with this oft told but never old story to Crotty James Perry responded to the toast of Texas with Variations Mr Perry

While the others were seeing the works of art I enjoyed sitting beneath the dome of St Peters and thinking be lieving that I was in the palace of one unbroken line of Popes from the time of St Peter to the present day I sat there daily for hours with the same thought and never felt the time pass It was heaven to me Surely a woman of such faith is now enjoying her eternal reward JOINT MEETING Of

Hague court is a body of international jurists that assemble at the Hague whenever called on is so rife that it may be timel to repeat how the court is not a tribunal but consists ofa large number of me t1f of acknowledged skill on questions of international law possessing the highesttt moral reputation and willing to accept the office of arbitrators wh n called on j u i I Each of the signatory powers has ap pointed four members of this court The tribunal in any particular case in the absence of any special agreement to the contrary consists of five arbitrators chosen from among the members of the court two being named by each party to the dispute and the four so named choosing the fifth If they fail to agree on the fifth member he is to be chosen by a power agreed upon or if no such agreement can be reached by two powers agreed on Just how the tribunal to con sider the Venezuelan case will be se lected will not be known until the terms of the protocol are made public The Hague treaty intentionally gives a very wide latitude so far as the constitution of the tribunal is concerned Its framers were seeking to make arbitration agree ments easy and therefore did not im pose any more restrictions than were necessary TAKE A REST Division 1 Awaiting tho Initial Appearance of Degree Team Officers and members of Division 1 A O H have been inactive for the past two weeks only working to secure addi tions to the number now awaiting initia tion on the evening of February 24 Upon that occasion the degree team com posed of members of this division will make its initial appearance and that quite a general interest is felt in their interpre tation of the beautiful ritualistic work will be evidenced by the large attend ance a general invitation having been issued to Hibernians of the three Falls Cities to be present Tuesday evening there was a very fair attendance and as soon as President Tynan got to work the business was dis patched with promptness One candi date was balloted for the other business being only of routine character Nothing was done toward the observance of the anniversary of Irelands patron saint the entire matter still being in the hands of the County Board It is quite likely however that because of inability to se cure a large and suitable hall for March 17 the board will not undertake any cele bration this year The Kentucky Irish American has been Informed that the local divisions will be invited to cooperate with their Jeffersonville brethren Prominent mem bers have expressed themselves favor ably upon this plan which if

If approved by the Board of Grand Directors for the order throughout the Union Chairman Joseph Piazza of this city will soon call a meeting of the Board of Grand Directors to hear and consider the report which is now ready The meet lug will most likely be held at Lexing ton The Grand Board Is also expected to name the date and place for holding the next grand convention which will doubtless go

Tomorrow Night ENCOURAGE TillS WORTHY PROJECT Louisville is to have a Catholic Coli seum unless all signs fail The initial steps in this direction were taken last Sunday night at a meeting of the clergy parishesinRev William George McCloskey Bishop of Louisville called the meeting to order and stated its object In substance he said that he had called the meeting at the earnest request of the pastors of the various parishes The object was to de vise ways and means for the erection of a large central building which would be equipped in a modern manner and which would be fitted out with a gymnasium swimming pool or natatorium a library and a large hall which could be used for lectures church fairs and all Catholic entertainments Smaller halls could be provided for meeting places of societies like the Catholic Knights of America Knights of Columbus Young Mens In stitute Ancient Order of Hibernians and similar organizations The Bishop said that in order to inaugurate the movement he was willing to donate a piece of ground on the north side of Walnut street between Fourth and Fifth The dimensions of this property are 80x105 feet He called for an expression of opinion ot the project and plans as outlined by him In response Rev Fathers Schuhmann Yprke Walsh Connelly Rock Leo Greullch and others made proposedbuildingThe selection of a name for the pro posed movement created considerable discussion and wss finally referred to a committee composed of the Rev Dr George Schuhmann Joseph P McGinn Henry Stollman Joseph Nevin Dan Hennessy William T Meehan and Thomas J McCann This commitee will report at the meeting to be held next Sunday night A temporary organization was formed with Thomas P Walsh as President and Harry Veeneman as Secretary Nearly all of the thirtytwo parishes in the city were represented by one or more laymen It was finally decided to hold another meeting in St Francis Hall in the base ment of the Cathedral tomorrow night at 8 oclock at which time the general character of the building and the pro posed location will be thoroughly dis cussed It behooves every Catholic lay men who has the interest of Catholic af fairs at heart to attend this meeting and to take an active part in the discussion- A Coliseum of this character will fill a long felt want in this community The Young Mens Christian Association has one and the Young Mens Hebrew Asso ciation has one Then why should the Catholics not have one Our young men have joined athletic clubs in both these institutions Why Because they believe in the axiom Sound mind in sound body They join these institutions for the athletic training not because they have lost the faith Nevertheless wouldrit not be better to have our young men in a similar Catholic institution It can be done It must be done eventually Why not start it now If a thing is worth doing at all it is worth doing well and the quicker it is done the greater will be the benefit to all concerned Our beloved Bishop deserves the heart felt thanks of all our people for taking the initiative in this matter and for his generosity in donating a piece of ground for the purpose It is to be hoped that every Catholic man and boy in the com munity will labor to bring the plan of Bishop McCloskey to a successful conclusion Let it not be a building of such narrow proportions as 80x105 feet There are a number of churches in this city of nearly double the dimensions that are masselon r place of general meeting Make it an affair worth the while In 1893 when the silver jubilee of Bishop McCloskeys elevation to the Episcopate was cele brated the Auditorium was all too small to hold the crowds that sought entrance grownintinue to grow The generous Catholics of Louisville will erect and support the

14 1903 1 PATRIOTS SHOWN UP The Circuit Court case published this week reveals that Louisville blight fanatical intolerance is still extant though working in secret It is well that our people and indeed the general public shoul know these things and who are those fanatical plotters against the rights of fellowcitizens the peat and morals of all as well as their real purpose and cowardly methods These quasirespectable professedly sanctified patriotic liberty loving hypocrites and slanderers should have their masks pulled off and their identity givenand we do it giving their names In doing so we are not prompted by animus but that the public may be posted not only the well informed and tolerant but especially those who through the false pretenses of these patriots are misled into be lieving their calumnies joining and aiding them in their mean and disreputable efforts prompted solely I by bigotry Incredible as it may seem too many decent and well meaning people under misapprehension approve and support these intolerant organizations- Our only regret is that all such were not present to hear the evi dence arguments particularly the blackguardism of Mr Burch nd decision in this case It would have opened their eyes as to wha company they are keeping and the low business they are mixed up in L WARNING NOTE SOUNDED Prof Eliot has startled the pub- Is lie by declaring that education may exterminate the human race That observation and statistic prove that among the collegiate educated people the percentage of marriages is small that those who o marry have few and frequently nt children that in ten generations educated families will become en tirely extinct only the uneducated classes multiplying normally All this is evidently true but is it due wholly to education or the kind of education It wasnot always true nor is it universally true Educa tion that tends to deterioration and extinction of the human race is surely baneful or at least some thing is wrong about it It is not C the kind of education that develops the good and noble traits arouses t the energy and ambition to the better and higher improves and elevates mankindas education has undoubtedly done in centuries past Is the Professor in telling this terrible truth unconsciously or otherwise striking a blow or sounding a note of warning against the boasted nonsectarian educa tion already bearing such fruit AS A REFOM IDEAL Among wouldbe reformers in in this country there seems a dis position to hold up England as a model Whether this is due to English pretense or otherwise does not matterresults do not bear out the claims The Magna Charta AngloSaxon s liberty and equal rights of man sound well but as a fact if not by statute class rules throughout the British Empire as nowhere else save Russia and China In legislation the hereditary House of Lords dictates In government the Min- iStry exercise all but absolute power despite the Sovereign and Hpuse of Parliament The tariff reformers laud Eng land as perfection yet the tariffs of imu periall approval are inconsistently discriminating with tht one motive to retirktj and retain their trade c to English markets to which they must sell and through which they must buy to the exclusion of all other nations The tax reformers copying Eng land have by their partial succes in this country demonstrated the fallacyof their ideal to the detri ment of business hardship of the people barren results and litiga tionThe financial reformer whi would give us the wealth of the world by the London plan is for the time being at least silenced bj the money stringency deficits am depression of British conditions in contrast with the prosperity am growing wealth of other nations The trust reformer is now point ing to England and her antitrust statutes for centuries past impos ing fines imprisonment confisca tion and cutting off of ears Yet as a fact the commerce and indus tries of no country are so trustrid den as Great Britain Her every industry commerce traffic ship ping all are absolutely controlled to the exclusion of individual am independent right by combines of capital and hereditary class unde special privileged grants and backer by Government subsidies Cer tainly not encouraging results which investigation and review bring to the surface England is a disappointing ideal and model at least for the United States Reformers searching for examples to prove the correctness of their theories should dig beneatl the top crust and pretense reaI conditions and results are proof And the American people are be coming less attached to ideals more thoughtful and practical requiring evidence and demonstrated facts The one weak point of most reformers is lack of proof of their assertions and prognostica tions and the American people are not giving them so much attention as formerly Since the anthracite operators attorneys having no other ground to stand upon before the commis sion based their case upon the right of nonunionists to work for what they pleasewhich no one deniesthere has been much said in press and pulpit about liberty among laborers The right of union men to not work for what they dont pleasebut thats differ ent These amateur or paid dis cussers of labor have yet to learn that the basic principle and funda mental right contended for by trades unions is that the laborer has some say as to the terms and wages for which he will workthe very thing those opponents of trades unions and advocates of laborers liberty dispute and resist They prefer to appear inconsistent rather than say what they mean that the employer has the exclu sive right to name the terms and wages of labor and the laborer has only the right to accept for his right to refuse to work is not con ceded but he is condemned forth s causing a shortage of product interfering with trade and the needs of the public Time brings changes Years ago one of the most profitable manufactures and best paid workers was in broom mpking Then some em ployes to Increase profits by reducing expenses ousted free labor and turned the penitentiaries into broom factories The workman suffered most and a broommaker could not earn a living but the inevitable has come The manufacturer not in the convict contract pool harhie brooms run out of then market by the low priced convict made broom Now the broom manufacturers have organized and will join with the Broommakers Union in pushing the union label brooms made by hottest labor Convict labor in competition with free labor enriches the contractor but is ruinous to free labor and all trade interests Time and experience proves it as in the case s of brooms England has not disappoints expectations or violated her traditions in the Venezuelan issue After leading her allies in warlike action blockade and stubborn refusal to modify demands and tern for arbitration the allies are ES tounded by discovering that England has thrown them down While apparently agreeing with Germany and Italy in their de mands and urging them to not relent the English protocol modified according to American and Venezuelan contention was submitted to and accepted by Vene zuelas representative Germany and Italy must now crawl down with ill grace and their pro Englis feeling shattered But then England always treated her allies like that which accounts for her having no friends among the nations After years of agitation the South Carolina Legislature has passed a law prohibiting the em ployment of children under ten years of age in mines and factories It seems incredible in this age and country that a law is needed to keep infants from such labor But it is so In most Southern State mere tots are worked at hard labo ten to fourteen hours a day and all efforts to stop this child murde are resisted But South Carolina law little as it is in the right direction is the beginning of a better era The place for childre is home and school their working at heavy labor for long hours iis detrimental physically and morally and the community that tolerates iit violates human and divine law and pays the penalty in disease pau per ism and criminalityI 1 A Texas young woman of re
