I KENTUCKY IRH AMERICAN GLUME XNO 21 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY MARCH 21 1903 PRICE FIVE CENTS MOTHERHOOD Insulted by the Head of Louis vmOg Health Bureau1 Dr Allen Who Says Lower and Criminal Glasses Aro time Most Productive Declares That Precautions to Restrict time Birth Rate Should Bo Taken HiS REFLECTION ON HIS FRIENDS Dr M K Allen the local Health Officer is credited by the Courier Journal of last Sunday of giving out an interview which if true shows that he is not only not a fit man to be at the head of a citys health department but he Is an insulter of respectable women Dr Allen poses as the Democratic political boss of the Fortysixth Legislative district and a maker of fire chiefs Probably Dr Allen got his various duties mixed and in de ploring the fact that the birth rate was so high among the lower classes also deplore l the fact that he could not get a fire chiefs position for everybody born in the Second and Third wards As a sam pie of what Dr Allen has to say read this As for my opinion on the visitation of the stork you can say it is 25 to 30 percent greater among the poor classes of our population I have in my official experience noticed several cases where triplets have been born to a mother and In nearly every case the family was in either the middle or lower class Our record of twin births is large and the great majority of cases are among the poorer families The ignorant and crim inal classes bring children Into the world indiscriminately and with never a thought as to the duty they owe to posterity or society and this reproduction is our men ace They have no standard of morals and are physically unfit It Is a sad con dition of affairs but it is true and unless there can be some effective restriction a few generations will find degenerates and moral perverts in the majority 4 TheJIgnorant aid lower lasscsehl A ndTh 1leWell What does Mayor Grainger think about this fling The Mayor is a mem her of a once large family and no one ever accused him of belonging to the criminal or lower classes Chairman Harry Brennan of the Board of Public Safety which has jurisdiction over the health department is a member ofa family of fair size So also Is Col Lee Suter and Col Ed T TIerney was one of severaland is the loved and respected father of a growing family Col Sebas tian Gunther Chief of Police has been the father of six children Major Pat Ridge is the father of seven Capt William Sullivan is one of a family of ten children Capt Ed Bright is the father of six and Lieut Ed Burke is the father of as many more and Lieut Heffernan has four But lot and behold out of the mist and gloom comes Sergt Joe Davis a nephew of Dr Allen with five children to his credit Are these people members of the criminal and lower classes that Dr Allen speaks oU To make it certain that Dr Allen was being correctly quoted two representa tivescalled on Dr Allen last Monday afternoon and asked him as to the genu ineness of the interview Three re porters representing local daily papers were present That Is about right about just what I said said Dr Allen in response to a query Are these people who bring five or six or more children into the world criminals Dr Allen he was asked and he tried to evade the answer by telling a vulgar story When pinned right down to the question he said- I never saw thestory I dont know what is in it I was never interviewed It is like a whole lot of things you news paper men write just an interview with out interviewing a man This time it can be stated beyond the peradventure of a doubt that Dr Allen was Interviewed to his hearts content Dr Allen why do you not havethe- paper correct this Ohlhe replied laughingly it would do no good They put a two column head over that article and they would put a one line head over the correction and put it in a place where It would not be seenI thought you didnt see the article In the CourierJournal How did you know it had a two colunm head Dr Allen made no reply He finally evaded a dF rect answer by making the startling state went You see the higher daises have so many social functions to attend toso many theatrr to visit etc that they doat care to be bothered with children and take means to prevent their birth That is an insult to motherhood Mid the editor of the Kentucky Irish AmericanI t care about your individual opinion1 said Dr Allen All well and good he my not care for an iindividual opinion i but BO one In Lowkville fearsn public opJaioH more than tfah MWC Dr Allen What does his friend Joe Herr mann think about Dr Allen or Mr Michael Herrman Are they In the criminal and lower classes Will the leaders of the Democratic party continue this insulter of motherhood in his office Where could one find a greater contrast than between the insulting views of Dr Allen and the beautiful tribute to mother hood paid by Miss Elvira Sydnor Miller in Mondays Times She says in part It was for His mother that Christ per formed the miracle at the marriage at Cana and when that heartbroken de spairing woman followed Him to the cross He confided her to St John the thySonjhim the best beloved and tenderest of Ills disciples that He gave her Oh what a holy and consecrated charge Surely the memory of it must have shone on Patmos like the dream of the evening star Christ loved women and He hon ored the mothers It was He who when they came timidly to present their chil dren to Him and were frowned on by His disciples called them to Him took the little ones and blessed them How this must have pleased them The love of a mother is like a benediction from heaven Even the ragged woman of the slums clings to her children and in her uncouth way shows her affection fcr them The passing of ones mother is like the van ishing of some beautiful dream It is the dying fall of all that made music In the heart It leaves home a ruined para disc from whence the angel has gone VERY SUDDEN Was tho Death of Alderman Henry S Cohn Last

Romantic Irish Drama Another St Patricks day has come I and gone and in Louisville it was celebrated I right royally though quietlyII religiously and socially As far as the weather was concerned the day was perfect Despite the predictions of thett i weather prophet the sun came out bright and glorious All nature was wearing J the green as if to honor St Patricks i memory More than that there were few citizens of Louisville black or white Irish Germans Americans French orII Italians who did not wear a little sprig of green Then there were many who J delighted In the receipt of a letter conJ taining a box of shamrocks fresh fromII their native land These came from Klllarney and Galway Antrim and Dubii tin in fact from every county in the Emerald Isle They were sent by loved I ones far across the sea and were watered by the tears of loved ones on this sideII As the tears kept these shamrocks green i so also has the sorrows and tears of poor Ireland kept the true faith green in thett souls and in the hearts of Irish men and Irish women the world over And now that the sunburst of Irelands glory seems about to appear let us hope and pray that that sun will not wither nor decay this faith but that it will simply make It more green and beautiful as It glistens with memories of our tears and sorrowsBut Patricks day was being cele brated in Louisville even before March 17 On Sunday 260 members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians testified to thelr idelitytnahe faftbylrt Jehnd and to St Patrick by receiving holy communion at St Patricks church What greater tribute could they pay It was indeed a glorious sight and one that will never be forgotten The most elaborate religious celebra tion of St Patricks day was held at St Patricks church at 930 oclock Tuesday morning The church was crowded with sons and daughters of the Emerald Isle who had come to do honor to their patron saint The Very Rev Father James P Cronin was the celebrant of solemn high mass Rev Father A J Brady deacon Rev Father John OCon nor subdeacon and Rev Father Patrick Kelleher master of ceremonies The Right Rev Bishop McCloskey occupied a throne In the sanctuary Seated near him was the Right Rev Monsignor Bouchet while Monsignor Zabler and the Very Rev Father Bax acted as his deacons of honor The pastors of nearly all the Catholic churches in the city were presentand occupied seata in the sanc tuary The sermon was preached by the Rev Patrick Walsh pastor of the Church of the Sacred Heart Father Walsh was in his happiest and most eloquent vein and his sermon made a deep Impression- on his audience Mr Robert Burkholder and Prof Elch horn assisted St Patricks choir with vie tin and cornet solos A beautiful duo was performed at the Gradual by Miss Angela Perry on the organ and Mr Burkholder on the violin The following ladies and gentlemen assisted Prof James Perry the organist and director In mak- Ing the musical programme a success Misses Angela Perry Nellie and Beltie

iam Lawler Harry Soete Constantine Kollross and M Andrews Mention should be made of the fact that during the past thirty years Mr Phil Hubbuch a German has never failed to take part in singing the music of high mass at St Patricks church o St Patricks day The services at St Mary MagdalensI church in honor of Irelands patron saint this week were not surpassed by those of any church unless it be St Patricks The eloquent stor Rev Father William Gausepohl preached the sermon on the great Irish saint and his words left hearersEAmong other things he said Thomas Moore the poet of Erin says in his beautiful song of Innlsfall Nor frown was seen through sky area Nor tear oer leaf or sod When first on their Isle of destiny Our great forefathers trodi It Iis certain that Ireland was destinedL by God to be Christianitys sacred island the home of faith and the fertile mother of a saintly and apostolic race There ext fe a striking resemblance between the once and missJoe of St Patrick the great Irish apostle and Abraham etH nriouIlpatriarch of old And tire nl c 11nII 1 I tsaid to Abraham I Gfr forth out of thy country and from th Ijkludred and out of thy fathers house nit come into the I land which I shall sh w thee I To St Patrick aftcGod the children t of Erin owe their highest dignity and I title children of Goa and his church More than fourteen centuries ago St Patrick came to Ireland bearing with him the light of fait and often as it has been trampled underfoot by unjust laws t and unscrupulous Invaders never has It ceased to exist The broad Atlantic ocean i yourforefathersI and the teachings of fett Patrick are here I the same faith the Catholic church teaches today and wljl teach to the end I of time If you wish that St Patricks I blessings remain wit you as with your t forefathers you must accept his teaching I and conform your lies to it as did the 1 Irish people That the mission of St t Patrick to Ireland was fruitful no one t can deny Go where you will here and abroad his name is honored In St Patrick who with cross andjshamrock in hand preached to the Druids aud bards ofIr Erin the God of younfatbers you recog I nize your greatest benefactor You cer tainly belong to thccliurch to which St Patrick belonged and whose apostle he was Ifas some one foolishly asserted the other day St Patrick was a Baptist whyare the great majority of the people of Erin Catholic How can a man preach the Baptistreligion and make the people Catholic Patrick had ben agalnsttbe Cath d h1rtck1t1iCfWn a uotliave made Ireland Catholic as she has been for nearly 1500 years You know his missionary labors by their fruits Christ says the tree is known by its fruits Cardinal Newman said St Patrick will never havea successor like himself Oh isle of tile saints how sublime Is thy destiny I They have tried to sweep thee thy institutions and thy religion from the face of the earth What Is there in nature more beautiful to behold than the majestic forest tree in springtime And see how the storm shakes its seeds and spreads them around the earth In like manner while other nations have enjoyed serene prosperity Ireland has been shaken by storms but tears of exiles have been the seed of the propagation of faith And Erins tree of faith Is spreading her branches in every direc tion Here as well as abroad the sons and daughters of St Patrick are true to the faith So on St Patricks day every shamrock has a tongue to praise the glorious apostle of Erin and to thank him next to God for all the noble gifts of Catholicity I can not conclude any bet ter than with words of hope for Erins children Erin oh Erin thy sun is but rising whilst others have set The noonday of freedom will beam round thee yeti At St Louis Bertrand church high mass was celebrated at 0 oclock in the morning In the evening at 730 oclock the Rev Father McFeeley delivered the panegyric of St Patrick Both services were well attended At St Michaels church on Brook street near Market Rev Father Sheri dan celebrated high mass in the morning and in the evening the Very Rev Father Albert Phelan C P pastor of the Sacred Heart retreat preached a sermon on St Patrick and his achievements Socially St PatrIcks day was well and appropriately celebrated j y the Irish Americans of Louisville The Ancient Order of Hibernian gave an entertain as wnwell attended and di delightful evening was spent Among the many who were present were State President ThomasI Keenan County Pre Meat Patrick Sulli van Mike Tynan Joe Taylor John J Cronen Pat Mullet Joe Melxsel JohnI P Kelly John Klidrlgan Pat Welsh John J Sullivan County President Patrick T SullivanI presided and introdi ted the orator of the evening Attorney II otnas Walsh whoI spoke as follows I My Friends Taj d not tell you that we have again i bled together to celebrate St Pat a day We have assembled to celet It with music and festivities befitting t occasion and to commemorate UK ces which the Illustrious saint rwxlred the Irish pea pie arid humanity ft large And right here let me tell tKatit liuot only just and proper tlMtPwe should commem orate the services ef the great benefactor of our race in Owrti sad State but iif iaNllI1Ii iMifU duty to deso ae f II f fri patriotic citizens of our beloved country and as grateful partakers of the good gifts which we have received at their hands By doing so we show the world that we are still mindful of what has been done for us in the past that we venerate the greatness of our heroic dead that our hearty always respond to noble sentiments uttered in their behalf and that serve to perpetuate the grandeur of their memories Some will tell you perhaps that this is the same old story retold and the same old song resung that have been retold and resung since the days of St Patrick himself In reply to this kind of criticism I need merely state that to my mind nothing more clearly proves the sterling character of Irish patriotism passIng love for the great saints and heroes of their race does not grow cold nor do they ever grow weary of listening to tales of other times retold about the mournful history of Ireland For my own part my friends I hope I shall never live to see the day when an Irish audience shall decline to hear the life andactions of St Patrick recounted on the ground that It is the same old tale retold and the same old song resung Should that day ever come then we shall know that Irish patriotism is dead that Irish chivalry is gone and that Irish hearts have lost their love for all that is beautiful and grand and true But I feel certain that a day of this character greatbodyi And here let me state my friends that co people in the world have better cause to be proud of their patron saint than we have to be proud of our glorious old St Patrick of Ireland His name and fame have crossed the shores of every ocean have penetrated the wilderness of every land and have become coextensive with the boundaries of humanity every where The splendor of his heroic deeds has made him a star of the first magnitude in the shining dome of heaven and from thence he sheds luster upon the human race at large upon that magnifi cent church of God of which he was such a devoted son and especially upon the Irish people themselves who forever rejoice In the glory of his memory And my friends we have good cause to know and remember that St Patrick is worthy of all the devotion honor and renown we can bestow upon him for in his day and generation he wrought wonders In behalf of the Irish people Some believe that he was born in Scot land in the fourth century At the age of sixteen years he was carried a captive to Ireland by a band of marauders but after six months he escaped and returned to Scotland Carried off a second time and again escaping he resolved to become a missionary to the Irish people and to this end he was ordained and after a long preparation he was consecrated Bishop He began active llabor in Ireland in about the year 432 and preached the gospel with such extraordinary success that be fore he died he had converted the entire population of Ireland to the faith He had found the Irish people worshiping the sun of heaven he left them wor shiping the true and only begotten Son of the Father whose death upon Calvary shook the world and wrought the re demption of mankind He found Ireland disfigured with temples erected to the worship of false gods he left it covered with monasteries and temples conse crated to the service of the one true liv ing God whose glory ourpasseth all understandingand whose years shall never tail He found the Irish people groping iu the dark trying in vain to solve the riddles of life its puzzling destiny and its final end but St Patrick by the aid of shamrock signs and sym bol solved them to the delight of the Irish people and he then spread before them the vision of eternity stretching away as it does into the inconceivable grandeurs power and glory of heaven and he thus sealed them in the faith forever Thereafter in succeeding centuries Ireland increased in holiness in sanctity and in learning until she be came famous the world over as the landl of saints and scholars But later on clouds overcast her skies the darkness of a long night of desolation settled heavily upon her while storm succeeded stotm till at last the thunders seemed to explode above her aad struck terror Into the hearts of her devoted chit rdren Nevertheless they never abandoned Ihc faith they never turned traitors to their country and their God or wenttl over tq the MMny They sever doffedI the robee of the salute of old todon the Qtc j livery of hell in which to serve the devil On the contrary when shot and shell sabre and bayonet combined with pesti lence and famine threatened to destroy them they clung still closer than ever to the holy faith given them by St Patrick and in that faith they died like martyrs of old like soldiers at their post and like sentinels on duty thereby furnishing magnificent testimony of Its power to sustain them in their dire hour of need It is a matter of history and a fact estab lished beyond all doubt that no people in the world ever shed more glory on the church by their true devotion to it thai did the Irish people in those awful days of evil and affliction that befell them They may have had their faults andS who has not But they have transcendent virtues that commend them to the admira tion of all time They have proved beyond all doubt that they are a people who love truth and justice more than they love life itself and that rio form ofEpersecution no system of oppression threat of dungeons or clanking chains can destroy the love of truth liberty and justice that animates their souls and that inspires their lives God grant my friends that this magI nificent devotion to the cause of truth of liberty and justice may at last receive its tlpropergrant that the day may come and come quickly when the clouds that have hung so long over Ireland may at Jast breakaway and disappear and ill their stead the sun of justice and freedom rise resplendent in its skies Even now my infriends even now we see harbingers of this glorious dawn appearing in the East and filling the heavens with banners of hope and signs of the redemption of our people Even now we see the English Governm Concentrating Its energies and mlirW1nuJfits tlrces in the effort tohdevise some meThod whereby the Irish people can become absolute masters and owners of the soil they till instead of being mere teuants dependent upon the will and whim of some local or foreign master God grant that this day of Ire- lands real emancipation may soon ar rive and if it does then with the pomp and roar of cannon of flying flags of streaming banners and of martial music we shall hold another day of celebration in honor of St Patrick and old Ireland The Hibernians of our sister city Jef fersouville also celebrated the feast of

Henry- S Cohn of the Anzelger shocked d the community Few men were SQ well and favorably known He was a selfmade man genial polite and obliging to all He prospered because of his industry and built up the Anzeiger to a leading Ger man paper commanding and maintaining respect for his fellowcoun trymen An immigrant and natur alized citizen he attested his patriotism by valiant service in the army his public spirit and pro gressiveness in peace Just and generous he did much to break down intolerance and disprove the fallacy of charges against alien citizenship He was active earnest and selfsacrificing in all public affairs and his life work benefited the city of his adoption PEACE AND SUSPENSE The change in feeling and general conditions throughout Ireland since the agreement to settle the land question resembles a sudden calm after a storm the first real peace in Ireland for centuries no agitation meetings contention arrests or djsturbances of any kind The people advised by their leaders accept the promised relief and await its fulfillment the rela tions between officials and people already are devoid of bitterness and suspicion and cordiality is growing The only anxious uncertain element are the rent agents brokers constabulary and petty officials hangers on of the land ord system whose insolent meanness rendered them odiouswho will be out of a job and are wonder ing what they will do Detested by the people without avocations or friends they will doubtless now become exiles but this time it will be for Irelands good Of the gen eral situation the Dublin Inde pendent says The change that has come over the po litical and social horizon is most remark able and gratifying Every one is looking forward to the ending of a bitter strife and to the opportunity of doing some thing for the industrial prosperity of the country The storm and stress of a few months ago has given place to a perfect calm England and Ireland are appar rently on the best of terms The removables are resting like disengaged actors the police reporters pencils remain unpared the bands and banners have not had an outing for several Sun days the voice bf the organizer is unheard in the land The last batch of coercion prisoners has been released King Edward III is allowed to sleep peacefully in his grave and no longer is his name invoked in the Petty Sessions Court The Government is not to be embarrassed and the head of the Eng lish Government in Ireland is received in public with the cordiality which a Si friendly statesman and ruler is entitled to The truce is complete and the earnest i hope is that it will grow into a lasting peace If the Government did not mean to behave handsomely in regard to the land question they would hardly encour ageas they are unmistakably doing the sanguine feeling which prevails on both aides of the channel The Lord Lieutenant in opening the Monaghan Agricultural School the over day made a speech full of the kindliest sentiments toward Ireland Ills tone would imply that his sentiments are shared by his colleagues in the Ministry mud that we are Indeed at theparting of the ways where England will at lasttake the right turn and lead Ireland to a brighterfutureIf be given to statements which have been made with some appear ance of authority Great Britains good will may not cease with the settlement of the land trouble The English press has published reports to the effect that a big tension of local government Is to be conceded to Ireland The establishment of an elective National Council in Dublin is said to be contemplated and upon it would be conferred the powers of the existing Government Boards in Ireland This from the Independent can hardly be an exaggerated forecast It certainly is a full ray of sun pine after a long period of dark nea8ro No wonder the Irish people at Iwrte celebrated St Patricks day wUk so much sort and enthusi U =m- n n 0 asm To many it seems as ia dream can it possibly be true Freedom from landlordism agents spies and constabulary then local selfgovernment in Dublin I The sunburst of Ireland is passing from under the cloud the hopes of cen turies the prayers of an oppressed people the sacrifices of heroic martyrs are to be realized The leaders of the Irish people announce it to be at hand and the Irish people trust and believe their leaders The present year 1903 will ever be glorious in Irish annals if these promises are fullfilled if not it will be noted for the basest of British deception and treachery PEOPLE GET THE LAND The land for the people seems as near attainment in Ireland as is possible under the British land system The people will hold the land directly from the Govern ment the intermediary landlord being brought otjj by tp Govern ment and people otICwU1 not be fee simple individual ownership as in the United States That sys tem of land tenure does not exist in any other country but to all practical purposes and benefits it will amount to about the same thing in Ireland The people be come their own landlords to put it plainly free to use and improve the land as they will dictation restraint oppression exorbitant rents will be abolished the tithes paid by landlords are all the people will have to pay in future Be sides such a holding like a llease is of value and all improvements increase the value which will be long to the holder instead of to the renting landlord The saving freedom and right to results of labor the immense aggregate that burdened the people to support titled landlords and their agents will belong to the people who pro duce it- The AngloAmerican alliance the campaign lie that was worn threadbare In the last Presidential election seems to have been be lieved in England The signing of the protocol referring the Alaskan boundary dispute to arbitration has just been heard of by the enterprising English press They are surprised and disgusted There is no alliance in the proto col England concedes that Skag way and Dyea and all ports on tidewater belong to the United States and the only Alaskan boundary to be settled is the inland eastern liner as the United States has always insisted and Great

Nationalist candidate for Galway city at a convention of delegates in Galway H M A Murphy a local Nationalist solicitor was also proposed to the convention but his name was withdrawnThe and Princess of Wales vis ited the Imperial Institute recently for the purpose of inspecting the exhibition of Irish building materials and minerals The Prince remarked that there seemed no reason why the beautiful Irish marble exhibited should not be used in England instead of that from foreign countries- A fire broke out in the upper rooms of the Commercial Hotel at Clones and be fore the flames could be subdued the entire concern was gutted only portions of the walls remaining The police bar racks adjoining the hotel were for a considerable time in danger and the efforts of the constabulary

a tenant on the Ellis estate at Kilconla that they could not entertain the proposals for purchase submitted by them until they bad secured the permission of Mrs OConnor to purchase The latter consented to allow them purchase on receiving a portion of the rent due an arrangement which was cheerfully com plied with The question of subtenant purchase has been attended with some unpleasant

their application to any of the estates on which subtenants reside- A storm of unusually violent intensity prevailed throughout Ireland the first week of this month From all quarters comes news that people were unable to leave their houses owing to the dangers attending the falling slates and bricks from the chimney tops The total amount of the damage can not be ascertained but the information at
