F iJSUOLU- ME i XNO 9 LOUISVILLE SATURDAYpEBRUARY 28 1903 PRICE FIVE CENTS CELEBRATION Of Washingtons Birthday by IrishAmericans Was a Success Eloquent Address Delivered by Attorney Thomas P Walsh Old Fashioned Irish Quadrille Was One of the Pleasant Features FUN WAS THE ORDER OF THE DAY The first annual celebration of Wash ingtons birthday by the IrishAmerican Society was held at Liederkranz Hall last Monday night under most auspicious circumstances If this society gives more of similar celebrations the society will grow rapidly numerically socially and financially A nicer crowd of ladies and gentlemen never assembled in Louisville Those who were there were IrishAmeri cans in every sense of the word repre sentatives of Irish manhood and woman hood who were shot only proud of the land of their adoption but proud of the land of their ancestors The hall was handsomely decorated with Americas red white and blue and the green white and gold of Ireland It was not a young folks affair by any means Married men and women were there with their sons and daughters They danced and they talked and told tales of the times long long ago All were proud that they were IrishAmericans Of course dancing was the main feature of the evening but you could not call it a ball nor a hop nor a social It was a gathering of the people who love their faith their country and their homes And with them as wel come participants in the pleasures of the evening were County Clerk Will Semo uin Magistrate Joseph Keyer County Attorney Sam Kirby Hon Arthur Wal lace Col Tom Riley and others who declared they never received more gen erous treatment than was bestowed upon them at the reception presided over by genial Tom Cleary a host in himself The success was due to the hard work of President John J Flynn Vice Presi JoA ilicrvJE Thomas TarpeyThoma JP iTfifyClaireother members of the society At an appropriate time representative members of the IrishAmerican Society took their seats upon the stage while the young men and ladies assembled in front to listen to an address delivered by Mr Thomas P Walsh the well known at torney Among those on the stage were President John J Flynn Thomas Keenan State President of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Police Commissioner John A Murphy and Redmond Stanton promi nent citizens of Jeffersonville Newton Rogers Joseph Nevin William M Hig gins Denny Heffernan James OConnor Pat Welsh John P Kelly John Ryan George J Butler Hon Arthur Wallace Andrew Kast and others President Flynn introduced Mr Walsh in a brief but ape propriate speech Mr Walsh explained that the object of the society was to promote the Irish Americans of Louisville socially politically and to cultivate among them a neighborly feeling to offer the members of the society and their lady friends an opportunity of telling tales of the olden times and thus bring rays of sunshine into their hearts As the speaker aptly put it we need all the sunshine we can get in our lives The darkness of sorrow we get without looking for it Mr Walsh briefly referred to the new era of pros perity that appeared to be dawning for Ireland and said he hoped ere long we would see Irelands sun of prosperity rise above the horizon He told how the Irish people united with Americans in loving the name and memory of Wash ington who accomplished more polit ically for humanity than any one who ever lived He told how IrishAmericans appreciated this country more than the Americans The latter had never felt the sting of tyrannys llash nor wore its chains while the IrishAmericans had felt both at home Mr Walshs address was well received and liberally ap plauded After this dancing was con tinued till after midnight- Of coarse the young people had all the schottisches polkas waltzes twosteps etc but one of the most enjoyable feat ures of the evening was an old fashioned Irish quadrille in which there were twelve sets or fortyeight couples Nearly all the dancers were married people Some of them had not danced for molt than twentyfive years but they went at it as though they meant business and showed the young fellows and girls that they could shake a leg with the best of them In this quadrille Col Tom Tarpey was master of ceremonies and you can bet the people were going some in that Irish quadrille Just think of a staid citizen like Joe Nevin swinging corners like a sixteen year old and Tom Keenan Tom Tarpey County President Pat Sulli van Thomas P Claire Johnny Flynn Mrs Thomas P Clines Mrs William M Higgins Mrs Keenan Mrs Flynn Mrs Thomas P Claire Mr and Mrs John Ryan Mrs Kast and a host of others following his lead And big framed big hearted Andy Hast the only German in the crowd cut the pigeon wing in a manner that made Johnny Kelly say More t- JU C power to you maulI My blessings on you Andy made a bit he was the whole thing and now declares that he iis going to form a GermanIrishAmerican Society and try it over But there were hosts of young men and young ladies present who white they enjoyed seeing their parents dame the quadrille still better enjoyed tripping the light fantastic to the tune of Nancy Brown or Under the Bamboo Tree11 And these girls were beauties Dressed in the latest American styles they were yet any one could trace their Irish lineage either through the sloe black hair and blue eyes of the Celts or the golden hair bequeathed to them through their Danish ancestors who dwelt in Ireland before the battle of Clontarf All in all it was one of the most thoroughly enjoyable affairs ever given in Louisville and the occasion will not be forgotten CALLED HOME Miss Mary Toomey Mourned by Many Sincere Friends Miss Mary A Toomey one of the most popular IrishAmerican ladies in the city died at the residence of her brother inlaw Jerry King the well known in surance agent 615 East Gray street at 8 oclock last Sunday night The funeral took place from St Michaels church at 0 oclock Tuesday morning The inter ment was in St Louis

improving so rapidly that both would be on their feet in a few days An encouraging report was received from the delegates to the County Board to the effect that the vacant hall dates were being rapidly taken and in a short time the ball would be selfsustaining and further per capita tax assessment rendered unnecessary In connection with this subject Harry Brady spoke at length upon what the order had accom plished within the past six years citing the fact that where a few years ago the A O H was considered only a reunion of nativeborn Irishmen by the outside public it is today respected as a power socially morally and politically Mr Brady said this was due in a great meas ure to the hearty cooperation of the Kentucky Irish American which has battled nobly for A O H principles since itsexistenceDivision on account of its increase in membership is now entitled to four delegates to the Catholic Federation and HenIncssyand Dennis J Reardon Members who have proposed candidates this

the SubCommittee on Catholic Coliseum Was Full of Interest General Discussion Followed Its ReadIng Last Wednes day Night Estimated Cost of the Proposed Building Given by An Expert ANOTHER GENERAL MEETING CALLED The need of a coliseum or general meet ing hall for Catholics with a gymnasium swimming pool library and reading rooms was still further evinced last Wednesday night when the subcommittee of seven priests and seven laymen through their Secretary Newton GI Rogers made a report at St Francis Hall to the committee of one from eachI parish Nearly every parish in the city was represented and from the discussion that followed the report of the subcommittee it was evident that while all felt the need of such a building each man present be he layman or priest wanted to be careful in devising ways and means toward the desired end The report of Secretary Rogers stated that every member of the subcommittee met the Right Reverend Bishop at the appointed time This subcommittee was made up as follows Monsignor Bouchet Fathers Cronin Schuhmann Walsh Gausepohl Greulich and Ohle and Messrs Jerry Bacon Jacob Schaefer Henry Kupper Newton G Rogers John Heer John J Score and Joseph Nevin The committee made known its wishes to the Bishop and he in turn stated that he recognized the necessityfor such a build ing a place where young men could find rest and recreation and where societies like the Catholic Knights of America Catholic Knights and Ladies the Young Mens Institute Knights of Columbus Ancient Order of Hibernians and kindred organizations could have a general meet ing place instead of being forced to take up quarters on other than Catholic premises All the societies he said would i talLrtsQ1Qaaseu tbr lbuilding The Right Reverend Bishop also stated that he would donate the use of the lot on the north side of Walnut street between Fourth and Fifth as a lite for the proposed building and if the laymen and clergy would raise 4000 he would tear down the Cathedral rectory and add the ground whereon it stood to the lot of 80x105 feet The report also stated that the proposed building on the site mentioned would cost about 49000 The Bishop also stated that he would not give a title to the ground to any person or corporation Mr Neil Curtain the architect was added to the committee and gave the figures on which the estimated cost of building was based After the subcommittee had made its report Thomas Feeley Fathers Schuh mann Walsh Leo Greulich Dr Clark J J Caffrey Newton G Rogers and others made remarks pertinent to the subject The concensus of opinion was that nothing ought to be done hurriedly at least not until the subject was thor oughly understood While the majority of those present admitted the urgent need of such a building there were many who were opposed to building on a lot to which they had not a clear title It was finally decided to receive the report of the subcommittee and to report it back to a general committee composed of delegates from all the parishes at a meeting to beheld at 8 oclock on the evening of Sun day March 8 ST FRANCES OP ROME The erection and blessing of the beauti ful oil painting of the patron saint of the Church of St Frances of Rome recently arrived from Europe will take place on Sunday March 8 This painting is as fine ascan be found in any church in Louisville and the frame

NEEDS FOR WIVES It is not to sweep the house and make the beds and darn the socks and coo the meals chiefly that a man wants wife If this is all be wants hired ser vants can do it cheaper than a wife I this is all when a young man calls to see a lady send him into the pantry to taste the bread and cakes she has made send him to inspect the needlework and bed making or put a broom into her hand and send him to witness its use Such things are important and the wise young man will quietly look after them But what the true man most wants of a wife is her companionship sympathy and love The way of life has many dreary places in it and man needs a companion to go with him A man is sometimes overtaken by misfortune he meets wit failure and defeat trials and temptation beset him and he needs one to stand by him and sympathize He has some stern Twttlefl to fight with poverty with enemies and with sin and he needs c 0 a woman that while hfcputs his arm around her and feels thitbe has some thing to fight for will bWp him fight who will put her lips to his ear and whisper words of counsel rnnd her hand to his heart and impart pew inspirations All through life through storm and through sunshine

Hibernians Planning- a Celebration for St Pat ricko Night BOTH SHOULD PROVE SUCCESSFUL The members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians of Jeffersonville are making great progress in the preparations for their St Patricks day celebration and their brethren in Louisville appear to be asmuch Interested as the Jeffersonville Hibernians The main feature of the celebration will be the production of an Irish comedy drama Erin Go Bragh or The Mountain Rebel at Spieths Opera House Erin Go Bragh is from the pen of Bernard F Moore a pleasing Irish dramatist It would not do to give a synopsis of the drama as that wonld leave nothing for the imagination Let it suffice to say that John J Devitt will impersonate Squire Donnelly an English lord The part of Bartle Brauigau the traitor will be taken by Dan Gill Frank Hogan will appear as James OBrien an outlaw and Charles Tracey will impersonate Phil OConnor an IrishAmerican Thomas OHern will take the part of Terry Murphy proud of his Irish birth and willing to fight for Ireland Miss Grace Coyle who has won considerable praise in amateur theatricals will impersonate the charac ter of Margaret Donnelly the Squires daughter while Miss Lizzie Coyle will appear as Blanche Flynn Margaret Don nellys cousin Alice Gorman Terrys future better half will be impersonated by Miss Ella Cottingham Miss Mary Dorsey will take the part of Old Nancy the mother of Bartle Brannigan the traitor There is a thread of romance patriotism and pathos running through the drama to set off the comedy parts J additionaojthe drama there will be many specialties SyfirsTcffss amateurs from Louisville New Albany and Jeffer sonville So many requests for tickets were made by Louisville Hibernians that the demand became greater than the supply As a consequence the local Hiber nians have again been considering arrang ing for an entertainment of their own on St Patricks night When it became known that there would be no celebra tion in Louisville of St Patricks day expressions of disappointment and surprise were heard everywhere Never have the local Hibernians failed to honor Irelands great saint on March 17 and it is now more than probable that an agree able entertainment will be arranged to be given at Liederkranz Hall The County Board was called to meet last night to determine the character and make the theohour of going to press nothing definite had been learned of the project The local celebration will in noway conflict with the Jeffersonville affair as there are enough good IrishAmericans in the Falls Cities to fill several halls particularly when it comes to celebrating St Patricks day Next week the Ken tucky Irish American will be able to give a more detailed account of the entertain ments to be given by both Louisville and Jeffersonville Hibernians Two weeks yet remain for preparation which gives the local divisions ample time in which to arrange for a fitting observance of the day ST PHILIP NERIS Rev Father Ackerman the energetic and zealous pastor of St Philip Neris church has arranged for unusually inter eating services for the members of his congregation during the Lenten season Father Paul Alf O F M will deliver a series of sermons begluing next Tuesday evening on the Passion and on Friday evenings the services will consist of the Way of the Cross and benediction pf the Blessed Sacrament Father Paul

zeal of the Rev John OConnell the beloved pastor A new altar new chandeliers and a new organ have added much to the beauty and comfort of the church and best of all everything has been paid for More than that the church debt has been reduced 500 Father OConnell has won the hearts of all his parishioners and is in truth a soggarth aroon HAPPIEST DAYS IMany who find themselves restricted in their pleasures by limited means or by the necessity of daily toil are often Inclined to think they would be much happier if they could escape these limita tions and have full opportunity to enjoy themselves in any waY their fancy might suggest But observation of those who II have plenty of money and ample leisure does not justify this idea Probably the most unhappy people in the world as a class are those who do nothing except seek after happiness As a constant em ployment the pursuit of happiness is a failure The greatest pleasures come to those who have few opportunitses to enjoy them A muchneeded vacation after a long season of work a holiday breaking the monopoly of weeks of toil a rare journey to new scenes by those who are not often able to leave home and work or a quiet Sunday at home with the family after a busy week of hustling toil these are the happiest days of life PATIENT SUFFERER Constable John T Kavanaugh Has Found Eternal Rest John T Kavanaugh Constable for the Eleventh and Twelfth wards died at midnight Monday after an illness of more than a year He had been a suf ferer from lung trouble The deceased was the son of the late Mr and Mrs Patrick Kavanaugh He is survived by one brother James Kavanaugh and four sisters Mrs Bernard Mulloy Misses Katie Annie and Rose Kavanaugh John Kavauaugh was born in Louis ville about thirty years ago and always lived in St Patricks parish When quite a youth he learned the trade of paper hanging A few years later he and his elder brother James embarked in the paperhanging business and soon built up a good trade Mr Kavanaugh was a popular young man and at the same time an exemplary member of the Catholic church He was never considered a poli tician but he yielded to the importunities of his friends and became a candidate for Constable No doubt his candidacy added much strength to the ticket Shortly after his election he was stricken with lung trouble from which he patiently suffered until death came to his relief He died as he lived trusting in God and loving his fellowman His funeral took place from St Patricks church at 9 oclock Thursday morning The pallbearers were Messrs Charles Barth James OConnor

announced that the question to be debated was Resolved That the social aud political recognition accorded the negro of the present day is not in ac cordance with his social and political attainments The affirmative side was represented by Charles Hackett William Receveur and John Parson Messrs Con J McBarron M C Thornton and Charles Cheap held up the negative end All of the arguments were excellent but Mr Thorntons masterly address won the day for the negative side After the debate cigars and refreshments were served and the members spent an agreeable hour during which Johnny Martel gave a monologue telling the story of the coun tryman who went to the city and after spending all his money throwing at the babies and falling to hit any wrote home and told his wife how much he

Imposing- Ceremonies Right Rev Bishop BIcGloskoy Preached au Appropri ate Sermon Largo Crowds Attend Both the Morning and Evening Services REV FATHER PAUL ALPS LECTURE A large crowd of devout Catholics at tended the dedication of the new church and schoolhonse of the Holy Name at Fourth and 0 streets last Sunday morn ing They had been taught from infancy that at The Holy Name of Jesus every knee should bend It What then was their happy thoughts when the news spread that a new and handsome brick structure where the holy sacrafice of the mass was to be offered up daily where the sacra ments of baptism penance and the holy eucharist are to be administered where the holy sacrament of matrimony in which man and maid pledge vows of love and promise to be faithful to each other until parted by death will be re ceived and all these under the patronage of the Holy Name No wonder then that these faithful followers of the church journeyed from all parts of this beautiful city away out to South Louisville on that bright and glorious morning Even nature appeared to lend its aid to make the occasion a happy one The sun came out bright and beautiful and shed its warm rays on snow covered fields and trees and the melting crystals dropped silently to earth like tears tears of joy and not of sadness The Right Rev Bishop McCloskey officiated at the dedicatory ceremonies and was assisted by the Right Rev Monsignors Bouchet and Zabler Very Rev Fathers Paul Alf H Westerman Rev Fathers Kennedy O P and Rev Fathers Welch Bachman and the pastor of the new church Rev Father John OConnor The ceremonies began at 930 oclock and at 10 oclock the Right Rev Bishop began the celebration of Pontifical mass assisted by the reverend clergymen named above The c oirras= sisted by leading

Schuhmann Miss Anna Schmitt sopra nos Mrs Ida Noski alto Joseph Plueckebaum tenor and Martin Roth bass The music was excellent The dedicatory sermon was preached by Bishop McCloskey who congratulated the pastor and members of the congregation on their enterprise in building this new and handsome edifice He said it showed their devotion to the Holy Name and He in whose name it was erected would bless them temporally as well as spiritually He also referred to the fact that the day was the anniversary of the birth of our first and most illustrious President George Washington He told how the United States of America had been modeled after the Catholic church It had sought out no particular class of men The best men of all classes lawyers statesmen financiers and farmers Hancock Adams and Carroll were among those who laid the foundation for the greatest Republic the world ever produced He spoke of peace and of war and of the doctrine taught by Jesus Christ and perpetuated till today by the church he established The Bishop told of the way of God and the ways of man He also spoke of authority in both Church and State both must be gov erned by persons in authority The Bishop also dwelt at length on the power conferred upon Peter and his successors I to preach eternal truths He also ad monished the congregation to beautify and adorn their new church until such time as a more commodious one could be erected In conclusion he gave those assembled his blessing There were many Protestants present men and women who are friends of Father OConnor and his parishioners who were edified by the ceremonies and pleased and instructed by the Bishops sermonAt oclock in the evening the church was again crowded After solemn vespers had been sung the Very Rev Father Paul Alf delivered his lecture on the Stations of the Way of the Cross which won so many commendations when delivered at St Brigids church a few weeks ago As in the morning the music was of a high order and Director Constantine Kollros and his sons E Joseph Kollross organist and Leo C Kollros the composer deserve the thanks of Father OConnor and his con gregation for their excellent work After the morning services the Messrs Kollros and all the visiting singers were hand somely entertained by Michael Richert and the members of the Holy Name choirRev Father OConnor is to be con gratulated on the

the fanaticisms tbat come to us from abroad the antiCatholic craze based on dread of the Jesuits t is the most riciculous and utterly at variance with the liberal re publican institutions which those fanatics champion and profess to protect The Catholic church is held by them to be the foe of H human liberty in the face of all history to the contrary and the Jesuits to be the controlling power of the church whereas they are but one of its branch organizations by no means the largest nor most influential The repetition of these falsehoods may excuse the uninformed and thoughtless for be lieving them When however a United States Senator devotes days to such a harangue blocking the action of the Senate on a matter of national and international import ance intelligent people are amazed especially when that Senator hap devoted years in advocacy of such a measure and is a representative of a party and section claiming to be the champion and bulwark of tolerance that repulsed and turned back to defeat the Knownothing ism of fifty years ago A United States Senator ought to know that the charges against the Catholic church and the Jesuits are untrue that though a people and Government r are Catholic even recogniz ing and having a treaty with the Papal Government as a civil power this can in no way interfere with nor effect a treaty between that Government and the United States e e as eve since its establisnment had treaties with Governments having treaties with the Papal Government with out Papal dictation or Jesuit 1ical intrigue causing any of the evil results he has devoted days to picturingYet Morgan of Alabama the champion of an isthmian canal has devoted days to that kind of argument against ratifying the treaty with Colomba ceding the i right of way and jurisdiction for a canal to the United States Col omba has a concordat treaty with the Papal Government To ratify a treaty with Colomba would be a f recognition of the union of Church and State in violation of American policy and constitutional provision I Strange that in over a hundred years during which the United States has had treaties with such governments this was never thought of and the Pope and Jes uits have not played smash with American institutions and interests All that time the Senate has contained not a few real constitu tional lawyers and devoted patriots and thousands of the American people Catholics included have shed their blood in attesting allegi ance to our republican liberties not against the Pope and Jesuits howeverSenator Morgan has for years advocated an isthmian canal via the Nicaragua route The United States has purchased the rights and property of the Panama Canal Company contingent upon being given full control and jurisdiction over the territory its harbors and It is a part of Col Iiapproaches that Government agrees to cede to the United States for an annual payment entire control and6 jurisdiction over the canal route six miles wide The ratification of this treaty Is opposed by Senator Morgan for the reasons given above Is it possible that he F favors the Nicaragua route or none Jgjie Intereflted in or an attorney for the Nicaragua Company Or e o- a contrary to the traditions of the Democratic party and the South is he a convert to later day Know nothingism The tenor of his tirade against the Colomba treaty is certainly at variance with the record of himself his party and sectionThis speech of Senator Morgan a Southern Democrat has attracted attention and comment emphasiz ing as it does a reversal of the history of intolerance in this coun try Until recent years intolerant fanaticism was confined to anti Democrats of the North and East being opposed and held in check by the Democrats of the South and West But now this intolerance ousted from the Republican party repudiated by the people of the North and East is spreading South and West where the Catholics are few or scattered and is affiliating with and seeking to control the Democratic party This is manifest here in the struggle thus early over nominations for city county and State officers to be elected next November and as the campaign progresses it will become more apparent The Kentucky Irish American is not partisan but op poses intolerance regardless of its party affiliation and deems it pro per to forewarn our people In due time we may be more explicit that the sheep may be distinguished from the goats and our people not be led unconsciously to aid in placing intolerants in officeeven labeled as Democrats NO DOUBLE TAXATION No matter what the provisions of tax laws any construction that directly or indirectly exacts a double tax has always been held void by American courts Even under reveuue and import tax law where double taxation has been proven the Federal Government refunded This would seem to be sufficient guidance for proper inter pretation and enforcement of all tax laws but it is not for Ken tucky officials The Kentucky franchise tax law provides that anyone who owns controls leases or operates a railroad shall pay a franchise tax While in equity and in accord with court decisions it is clear that the franchise tax is levied upon the railroad property and is to be paid by either of the parties liable there for an effort is being made to col lect franchises from all parties so connected with railroads in this State Manifestly wrong as is this construction and certain to be reversed by the courts if ordered the State Board of Valuation is hearing arguments on propositions to assess the Illinois Central Com pany for franchise tax on railroads leased by it in this State though the owners have already paid the franchise tax and vice versa as sess the Cincinnati Southern Company for franchise tax on its rail road on which the lessees have already paid the franchise taxa deliberate attempt to collect double franchise tax on the same railroad property clearly unjust illegal and onerousThe of Valuation may well devote its time and attention to better businessthe assessing of property evading its just burden of taxes for instance With such ex tortion and oppression of corporations it is no wonder they are withdrawing from and giving the State the go by Corporations should be made to pay fair taxes and generally do not object but will not submit to being held up and robbed even by a State besides c U corporations are in business for profit and taxes which exceed profits force them out of business or at least to go elsewhere and they are doing this to the loss of the State LANDLORDS SURRENDER The persistent agitation petition and effort within legitimate bounds for an equitable land tenure in Ire land seems likely to succeed despite coercion chicanery and long deferred pledges The United Irish League and Nationalist party have pursued a wise and patient course in face of difficulties con tention and aggravation relying upon legal popular effort and the rights of the law resisting in the courts and in Parliament as they have the undisputed right to do prosecutions and oppressive Jegis lation and demanding in the courts enforcement of law against land lords and agents and urging in Parliament a fulfillment of Govern ment pledges for modification of laws burdening the Irish people And despite the many unjust and cruel enactments for proscribing and crushing the Irish people their leaders have smothered indig nation race hatred all feeling of revenge ignored all else and cor rectly united on the one greatest evil source of all others most op pressive and restraining ofburdens thoroughly enslaving their people absorbing the fruits of their indus try and keeping them poor without hope of bettermenthelpless slaves the landlord system This must be abolished the people allowed to become the possessors as well as tillers and producers of land reve nues tribute to landlordism must stop the fruits of Irish industry must go to the people and the wall barring them from controlling the land and denying them all hope of progress must be removed It was a firm and bold stand to take It required courage and unfaltering firmness to agitate for and insist upon the granting of this basis of all popular privileges as the era of proscription persecution prose cutions and imprisonment oilhe past two years attest But it seems that the beginning of victory is in sight With the opening of Parliament the Irish people united their leaders prepared to urge more ear nestly Irelands cause and with the outspoken approval and proffered aid of representatives from the colonies Scotland and parts of Eng land the landlords relent agree to a conference with Irelands repre sentatives and a compromise for the pending Irish land bill has been agreed upon signed and with a petition presented to the Govern mentThe speech of King Edward in opening of Parliament contained but one brief paragraph in reference to the matter but is suggestive of approval and though it is the Ministry that is to decide for the Government the indications are favorable Approved as a measure it will certainly pass the House of commons though it may fail in the House of Lords despite the fact that Irelands most earnest enemies her titled landlords are parties to the compromise The outlook however is that it will pass and that the most burdensome of all landlord systems that has plundered and pauperized the Irish people for centuries driving them into exile to develop and build up other countries and nations will cease The Irish people with the opportunity of acquiring the land have their heaviest burden and greatest restriction removed their progress prosperity and advancement in other lands give a perspective of what the Irish people at home ought to be and ere many years will be The German agitators for high tariff to shut out foreign imports that German farmers and manufacturers may monopolize the home market are learning that there are two sides to tariff fights Other Governments are amending tariff laws to shutout German products and manufactures and already Ger u Y man financiers and commercial leaders ar worrying over the prospective results to German trade interests y The reason why some Aldermen and Councilmen vote for every thing the Street Railway Company wants and against everything i it does not want would make inter esting reading but not for the aforesaid city dads If this agitation continues a little serial maybe published Some folks are really cheap If the Kaiser is really anxious for n fight let him keep fooling round SouthAmerica regardless of Uncle Sams Monroe doctrine or poke into RussiaTurkey squab ble and no doubt his Imperial Majesty will be accommodated But he will have to do more than talk because they all think he is only bluffing Though Germanys representa tive signed the protocol agreeing to accept pay at a specified date the Kaiser declares he will not lift the Venezuelan blockade unless paid in advance What was iit Admiral Dewey said to Admiral Von Diedrich in Manila bay Rous mit him or something like it If the British Governmet should withdraw the pending Irish land bill substituting therefor the com promise bill abolishing the last of the ancient landlordism in Ireland and granting Government aid to give the land to the people what will the trueblue royal Tories say and do about itj Everybody is cussing the Street Railway Company It is certainly deserved SISTERS OF TILE GOOD SHEPHERD To the Editor of the Kencncky Irltb American The convents of the Good

age who are verging on a life of sin In both these classes habits of industry are inculcated and every means tried to make them forget their former life They are taught laundry work and all kinds of sewing plain and fancy A third class forms an industrial school Children from five to twelve years of age are received Into itj some are half orphans others children of parents whose example would prove fatal to the youthful mind These children spend their morning at school where they receive a plain English education and are trained Jo sing and are taught music if they have talent for it The afternoon is devoted to needlework crocheting etc My dear friend if at any time a poor wanderer or a homeless unprotected girl needs shelter send her to the Sisters of the Good Shepherd Creed or

depends upon the management of the collar and shoulder effects in the fashioning of the new tailor gown and the variations upon stole yoke and popu lar cape are Innnmerable Sashes are another popular detail for light frocks and are usually in Liberty satin taffeta or chiffon with fringed ends or inset lace motifs running from the ends toward the waist One reads much about the short skirt which the French woman has adopted but as a matter of fact the skirt is far from fulfilling our idea of short It is merely bereft of sweeping train Spring coats and cloaks are already looming up on fashions horizon and the early models shown suggest that there are to be no radical changes The spring wraps will apparently be winter wraps translated into lighter fabrics The threedecker or triple skirt is much advocated for spring wear and is becom ing to the woman who is tall enough to wear it well Here again the difficulty of cutting in continuous line a skirt with the proper cling and flare is ob viatedA of the walking frocks turned out by the Parisian makers now have no dropskirt They are perfectly cut and worn over a separate dropskirt or petti coat which must be molded to the figure as far down as the knees and then break into R prodigal wealth of flounce and frillThe Jngllsh demand a skirt deserving the adjective short for their country outing costumes and by the way certain London tailors are taking up the crocheted sweater dear to the American girls heart and making it not a separate item of toilet but a feature of a special costumeMuch skill goes to the obtaining of the correct skirt effect and not often does one see a perfectly fitted skirt which has the graceful curves and the billowing flare pictured so prodigally in the fashion journals In the first place the cutting of such skirts is high art In the second place few dressmakers understand fash- Ioning the dropskirt so that it will help the outer skirt to its coveted flare The walking skirt or short skirt so called has lengthened until it barely clears the ground and is not nearly so comfortable as the short skirt of earlier seasons though it is more generally be coming On the other hand the longr skirt has shortened in the back and the street gown which does not pretend to a short skirt now touches the ground allI around merely sweeping enough to give a graceful line in the back but not lying upon the ground SELECT MASK HOP The Jolly Three Club will give a eele mask hop at Dittmeiera Hall Twenty second and Garland avenue on St Pat ricks night March 17 The members of the dub are John

Pago Have Withdrawn Plain Sailing Made For Many Candidates For Good Offices REMOVAL OF SECRETARY JACK SHEA Things political in Louisville insofar as the Democratic party is concerned appear to be narrowing down and there is some talk that the proposed primary which is set for April 7 will be called off However this is merely conjecture as there are several races which are being closely contested During the week Judge Asher G Caruth announced that his health was such that he could not make the race to succeed himselfas Judge of the Criminal division of the Circuit Court This would have ap parently left the field open to Hon Arthur M Wallace but for the fact that Attorney Joe Pryor on Wednesday an nounced that he had been prevailed upon to withdraw from the race for the third division of the Common Pleas branch of the Jefferson Circuit Court and had decided to enter the race for the Demo cratic nomination for Judge of the Criminal Court In announcing his withdrawal from one race and his entry into another Mr Pryor says One of the most frequent and to me the most potent reasons urged by my friends for this course was that such action on my part would strengthen and harmonize the Democratic party in this district After mature reflection I have decided to ac cede to the wishes of my friends and thereby announce that from now on I am a candidate for Judge of the Criminal Court to succeed Judge Caruth Circuit Clerk John H Page in the in terest of harmony also withdraws from the race to succeed himself and has joined forces with his opponent Senator William L Weller Jr Of course this was done with the understanding that Mr Page is to be Mr Wellers chief deputy in the event of the tatters election The ma jority of Mr Pages deputies will be retained However Magistrate Joseph Keyer is still in the race against Mr Weller and has strong backing His friends declare that he is in the race to stayAs it is now Judge Emmet Field Judge Shackleford Miller Judge Upton Muir Judge Thomas R Gordon and Common wealths Attorney Joseph M Huffaker have no opposition Judge Sterling B Toney is being opposed by County Attor ney Sam Kirby in his race for Judge of the second division of the Chancery branch of the Circuit Court One of the greatest political surprises of the week was the removal of John H Shea as Secretary of the Board of Public Safety Mr Shea has held the office during the past five years and is regarded as oneof the most competent officials at the City Hall He was removed through motives of political expediency He was asked to resign but preferred to be re moved Mr Shea will find no trouble in securing employment just as lucrative HOW TO GROW OLD GRACEFULLY Mrs Elizabeth Cady Stanton has been writing on the subject of how to grow old easily happily and gracefully She is now in her eightyfifth year and she says life to her is as sweet as ever She has no pains or aches no regrets or fore bodings for herself all her sorrows are for the troubles of others- I attribute my vigorous old age in part to advantageous circumstances she says in part to happy hopeful temperament a keen sense of humor sympathies for all my fellow beings and a deep interest in all the vital questions of the hour One must have an earnest purpose in life beyond personal ambition and family aggrandizement Selfcentered char acters do not possess the necessary ele ments of a high development If one would have a happy old age the first condition is a sonnd body to that end exercise diet dress sanitary conditions are all important Nature does her best at all periods of womans life to make each change one of added health and happiness Those obedient to her laws rejoice in every step from youth to age Fifty is the heyday of intellectual life Then the vital forces used in reproduction are garnered in the brain giving new ideas and adding new force clear ness and beauty to thought There comes to a woman eloquence of expression and she finds a wider field for her sympathies She has new inter ests in the great world which is the future home of her children in which she is now to labor to make it fit for them to live in My philosophy is to live in the present Regrets for the past are vain the page is turned there is no remedy for what was done As to the future anx ieties are equally vain we do not know what one day will bring forth what we hope or fear may never occur the present all that is ours The celebrated Jesuit missionary Father Roh was accosted at railway sta tion by a deriding infidel who said to him Have you heard that as
