of the most attractive features of the Abbey of Gethsemanl is no more says the New Haven Echo The magnifi cent English elm trees that formed the avenue leading up to the Porter Lodge Lave been cut down which destroys much of the beauty of the place There were four rows of these trees planted generations ago and feo set as to form a perfect shade at all times They were full grown and their beauty was such that visitors always remembered them A few years ago they were attacked by a beetle that had about killed them and the only thing to be done was to cut them down so that new trees

etc March 3 is of course to be the culminating point of the jubilee for it will mark the comple tion of the twentyfifth year since Leo XIII was crowned The ceremony In St Peters bids fair to be the most mag nificent Papal function of the last quarter of a century Numerous pilgrimages from different parts of the Catholic universe will be there for the occasion and the immense spaces of St Peters

number of tribunes are to be elected for the members of royal families the diplomatic corps accredited to the Holy See the Roman Patriciate and nobility and distinguished persons of all kinds The

all the thousands present On April 28 his Holiness attains the years of Peter in the See of Rome The occasion will be observed with great rejoicings throughout the world One feature of the jubilee

had it years ago Now that a start 4 has been made it should be thor oughly discussed a definite plan mapped out and then by united effort push it to completion Now is the time to talk air your views j and ideas that there may be a bet ter understanding and when an agreement is reached it may be satisfactory and united action in sure success FORFEIT ITS CHARTERS The efforts to have the City 1 Council give to the people better more convenient and extended street car service have thus far I failed except when the street car company was willingThis company operating under charters of ques tionable legality enjoying fran chises given gratis not only ignores its obligations at will refuses to provide transit service blocks the way for any other company doing L so but defiantly threatens to stop its cars if Interfered with And a subservient Council sustains the 1 railway autocrat against the people r When a beggar lifted on horse back would ride down the King it is time to unhorse the rascal whenCouncilmen elected by and deriving authority from the people L betray their trust to the detriment of the people it is time to oust such Councilmen The people have the right and the power and they must call a halt and bring the railway company and its pliant tools to terms A corporation is but a creature not a masterallowed privileges in return for obligations to serve the public The railway company has long since forfeited allprivileges by failure and refusal to comply with its obligations and in this it is aided and abetted by the Council I Other officials however have a duty to perform and should be called upon to do it Whose duty is it to enter suit against corpora tions for forfeiture of charter The lawprovides this for the protection r of the public and it also imposes the duty on some one Our people should arouse unite and go after this arrogant corporation by stir ring up indifferent officials The uIJCouncil is not the whole push indeed it is not an essential but being controlled by the railway company is used to dillydally and ward off the proper course Go into court and demand that a w the railway company comply with or forfeit its charters and there will be no occasion for bothering y about the Council PROMOTERS OF CRIME Far be it from us to discredit the motives or sincerity of the ministers are leading the crusade against Pu1who in this city grow their ser mons interviews and procedure however it is manifest that they dp not know much of the nature extent methods and cause of crime denunciationst Io of causes are varied their reme dies likewiseand many of them though well meant miss the mark Not a few of them are clearly uraw recruits in the army of reform whose zeal excites only ridicule among the irreverent is taken ad vantage of by divekeepers to draw patronage and amuse their patrons and whose remedies are ineffective Their denunciations are exaggerated as all informed fully recog nize and exaggeration of an evil tends to its mitigation with con servative people They condemn the police public officials generally saloons gamblers press politic ianseverything and everybody except strictly moral Christians It is evident if they are correct the majority is overwhelmingly against them We do not minimize the crime in this city there is far too much of it it is widespread all but im mune and privileged but reform must be based upon facts and jus ticethe sheep must be separated from the goats even in a work of reform and the root of the evil must be reached to be effective That which merely punishes the scapegoats pinches the henchmen scotches the wings as it were only causes a temporary halt to be fol lowed by a worse condition The power which controls the real ben ficiaries of this criminality must be exposed and broken up While all classes enumerated may be partly at least responsible for the crime fostering shielding and even pro tecting it as charged they are sub servient and only contributory the outgrowth part of the machinery that is the source the power re sponsible for and profiting by it The police so roundly abused are not to blame The sole duty of the police is to obey orders The saloons are not as a rule the haunts of criminals nor hotbeds of vice saloons as well as other branches of traffic are in their classes Our public officials gen erally are honorable and faithful to duty those who are not should be made to bear the onus of their shortcomings Our lawyers as a whole are not deserving of censure for their conduct either profession ally or personally The criminal lawyer has earned his reputation but those who hire and use him are the real felons Even the gambler as a rule is not degraded and crim inal nor an aider of criminality The presswell the press cares very little about what the rayerend gentlemen think of its duty or line of conduct The politicianscoming close to it But all politicians are not guilty The real politicians who are in politics for the honor and glory of office in support of prin ciplessimonpUre politiciansnott- hey But those in politics for the money they make directly and indirectly some are not known as politicians but as business men respected citizens prominent in society andwould you believe it church members They derive profit from crime some are the real owners of dives the supposed proprietor receiving a salary or percentage others are mortgagers who furnish the capital for a share of profits others receive tribute for their influence others have a monopoly of trade in goods sold in criminal resorts and how many of our llfirst families receive extor tionate rents through agents of course from these dens of vice This class receiving a regular revenue from crime are the root of the evil They are the source the uianiPxlatorsfi corrupt politicss- r n u irrespective of party They are the bosses who dictate primaries conventions and elections to defeat candidates and legislation inimical to their grafts to prevent en forcement of law to stop their revenue and to protect their henchmen from penalties The mercenary official the divekeeper the criminal lawyer the pro fessional juryman the perjured witness are their means to an end and their victims as well not infrequently their slaves The fees tributes rakeoffs profits added to the cost of running criminal resorts suggest an immense sum Where does it come from Not the degraded habitues for they have nothing nor the laboring or middle class for while many of them squander their earn ings they have not enough to spend to pay the price Then it must and does come from the wealthy The sons of welltodo and respectable parents sowing their wild oats are the principal patrons their spending exceeding any possible salarywhere do they get the money Let indulgent parents answer Respectable citizens of mature years and honored reputations are not unknown down the lineand they are the best paying patrons Plucked and fleeced they pay anything to avoid exposure And it is ths respectable class that to shield them selves from publicity must and do suppress publications and even se cure immunity from interference for crime and criminals If our ministerial friends would go through theured light district during the wee small hours of a Sunday morn ing the familiar faces they would meet might shock them but prove that we are not libeling the re spectable class To reach and suppress these real promoters and protectors of crime will be an arduous task but it is the only effective remedy Why is it that Catholic editors and some priests speak disparag ingly of the Catholic Federation and Knights of Columbus We do not feel authorized to question their motive though it seems plain enough Any organization ap proved by the proper ecclesiastical authority is sufficiently Catholic moral and beneficent to merit and will receive the respect and en couragement of the Kentucky Irish American That is enough for us If others insist upon better certifi cate of character that is their busi ness We fully reconize the sole right of the episcopacy of the church to decide such matters and have entire confidence in their ability wisdom and devotion to sacred duty to advise correctly With due respect to all we prefer to look to the episcopacy for our guidance in matters involving re ligion and moral- sRECENT DEATHS Margaret McGarry

The Rev D OConnell of the Cathedral at Waterford has been transferred to CarrickonSuir where he replaces Father Martin Power who has been promoted to be parish priest at Carrickbeg On Saturday morning his Lordship the Most Rev Dr Sheehan celebrated mass in the Cathedral being the eleventh anniversary of his consecration as Bishop of Waterford and Lismore The sacred music was beautifully rendered by the well trained choir The Galway Observer and Express the Nationalist and Unionist newspapers as candidates mentioned locally in connection with the Parliamentary vacancy the following Nationalist And local men Messrs J McDonnell H C Murphy and Richard J Kelly who has taken a deep interest in Galway All are natives of the county Tuesday afternoon when the tide got low some men at work on the Pier Head quay at Youghal saw the body of a man- u the center of the market dock A young man named Morris went to the spot brought it to the side of the quay and on examination it was found to be the body of John Walsh of Windmill lane The poor man was seen in the street by several parties during the evening He leaves a widow to mourn his loss iSfWaHall for the purpose of taking steps to cooperate with the Central Committee a Dublin in connection with the big bazaar being organized to meet the heavy expenses which the erection of a central training school for the Irish Christian Brothers at Marino Dublin will involve Practical resolutions were submitted to to the meeting and a committee appointed- to carry out the work A very sad fatality is reported from tlonlara County Clare It would ape pear from the information to hand that a small farmer named Pat Hannon was returning home in a jennet and car from Limerick The night was pretty dark and somewhere near Cappavilla bridge the jennet walked into the canal at an unprotectedspot and both Hannon and the animal were drowned Poor Hannons body was found on Saturday morning and the jennet and car also some distance awayThe body of Jeremiah Coffey District Superintendent of the Great Southern Western railways Tralee was found be fore noou Tuesday in the river at Castle maine quay fifty yards from the depot where deceased was supposed to have fallen into the river on Saturday evening Coffey was returning to catch the train at Castlemalne on Saturday evening and requested Father Daly who was with him to run to the station to detain the train for him In the darkness it is supposed he missed his way and walked into th e unprotected river Deep and general regret will be felt at the announcement of the death of John Downes of Kilfinane The sad event took place on Saturday evening under painful circumstances He left for his home at Kilfinane on Saturday evening accompanied by some friends but had not proceeded far from the town of Hos pital when he took ill and was taken to1 a neighboring house where spiritual and medical aid was summoned He was a man in the prime of life of fine physique and of the most genial disposition He took a deep interest in Gaelic pastimes and was founder of the famous Kilfinane hurling team whose deeds were so often crowned in every part of Ireland with the laurels of victory Downes was an ernest Nationalist and took an active part in the advancement of the cease The estimates of rates prepared and submitted by the clerks of the various District Councils and Unions throughout Ireland show that the working of th local government act unwieldy and cumbersome though It is has been at tended with a much larger amount of success than was at first anticipated When the act first came into operation I the Conservatives who bad to give place to the Nationalists predicted all sorts of failures and hugged to their breasts the for them consoling reflection that th nominees of the people would make a hopeless muddle of everything Prophe cies of that character all remained unful filled and the best answer to the oft repeated assertions of the landlord claw are the reduced estimates which have jUt been under consideration andI which demonstrate that in the fabo ofr diCeuUiM the local public bodJM la tiiei o 1 i country have administered the act with economy and much more fairness than was experienced in theidays of the de funct grand juries r The election of Mr Michael Donnelly as Mayor of Limerick 1903 was wel comed very warmly not alone by the working classes but by most of the citizens who have followed the trend of municipal and politlcaj events in the city for the past fifteen years Mr Donnelly is a Tipreraty man but the best part of his youth and manhood has been spent in Limerick He is par excellence a democrat pf the truest type and since his election tithe corporation in 1885 be has ever been the champion of the workingman His first essay in municipal life was in opposition to the famous extra police tax when in con junction with Alderman OMara Coun cillors Anglin Riordaaand others he successfully resisted a writ of mandamus and beat the Government hollow He was also an earnest advocate allalong of having the corporation in control of the lighting and waterworks of the city He holds ever to the idea that municipal ization of such matters tends to the public good and to reduction of rates He has been a poor law guardian since 1893 and the poOr havJ ever in him a devoted and sincere friend in political life he has an unblemished record He became President of the fearafield branch of the Land League when the coercion act was passed and remaiaea at the head of the branch until it ceased to exist He was also
