Philip Stark as tenor and John Grues ser as bass soloist Then came the panegyric Father Haegen Is a man of striking presence which is all the more heightened by his white habit and black preaching cloak His voice is clear and resonant and it is safe to say that not one person of the many in the vast church failed to hear one word from start to finishw Father Haegen took his text horn the Apocalypse of St John xiv18 I heard a voice from heaven saying to me Write Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from henceforth now sayeth the spirit that they may rest from their labors for their works follow them A little while ago said the reverend speaker the voices of the whole world were lifted in jubilation praising God that His vicar upon earth had accom plished the days of St Peter in the Holy See Before the echoes of that jubilee have died away the voices of jubilation are changed to tribulation mourning and supplication for the repose of the soul of our Holy Father Leo XIII Then with master hand Father Haegen painted a word picture of the early life of Giaccomo Peed his early piety giving evidence of the holiness hat was to come He told how he had learned the great mysteries of our holy religion at the knee of his pious mother and how at an early age he entered college and began the earnest study of the sacred sciences He told of his ordination at the age of twentyseven and how Pope Gregory XVI dispatched him as ecclesiastical governor of certain Papal States and with what a firm yet just hand he put down conspiracies and restored law and order Rapidly the panegyrist sketched the dead Pontiffs life and yet left no phase of it untouched Graphically and eloquently he told of his election as Pope and subsequent coronation He told of the attainments that made Leo XIII

bowed to the superior wisdom and infallible justice of this Sovereign Pontiff father Haegen also enumerated how Pope Leo though the first Pope In 1500 years to ascend the throne of St Peter devoid of temporal power though vir wally a prisoner In the Vatican yet he put an end to the Kulturkampf in Germany be settled the East Indian diffi culty for England he consolidated the E tottering empire of Spain he revolution ized the study of history He was visited and courted by the mightiest sovereigns People crossed the oceans and the track lees waste of the desert to kneel at his feet and tell how much they loved and nepeotedhim o His influence teas worldwide Cen turies hence the name of Leo wilt live when you and I are dead and crumbled into dust Who can measure the extent of his influence

whose loss we deplore tonight At his recent jubilee all the nations of the earth pagan heretic schismatic and Christian knelt at his feet and paid their tribute to his worth as poet historian theologian philanthropist international mediator statesman diplomat and colonizer His holiness of life commanded the respect even of those who rejected his teachings He loved all men It mattered not that some were deluded by prejudices and stained by sin He saw in them all the image and likeness of God All that ifi mortal of Pope Leo XIII lies tonight in the cold embrace of the tomb but his personality shall live forever and his noble reign he extolled by all posterity After the panegyric the Sanctus from Gounods mass arranged for tenor solo and chorus was given Henry Dohrman was the

Apropos of the American Federation of Catholic Societies William C Smith of Louisville has been made a victim of a practical joke by a number of his mis guided friends Lord deliver me from my friends is an old adage but during the past week it must have been repeat edly uttered by Mr Smith The Courier Journal hunts for news always well but not always wisely so when Its management was notified that William C Smith a prominenttcitlzenof Louisville and Catholic intended to ask the Catholic Federation to consider and pass a set of resolutions looking to the repeal of the long standing ban of the Catholic church against Masonry the matter was pub fished by the CourierJournal as news And it was news indeed The Courier Journaleven gave what purported to be the resolutions that Mr Smith was to project The resolutions are too lengthy for publication in full but it may be justae well to use the latter part of the preamble in which the name of the late I lwL Pope Leo is mentioned desecratingly iif not sacrilegiously inasmuch as they read Whereas Leo XIII of sainted memory desired Christian unity and looked I to America for comfort as a stepping stone to such a noble end let us in a fraternal spirit blend with our dissident brothers for our country our religion and our God therefore Resolved That our Bishops and all in authority In connection with the Catho lie laity be and are hereby requested to work out the repeal of this ban so far as the United States of America are con ceruedand restore the halcyon days helpfulgood will to all men Resolved That a copy of the pre amble and these resolutions be sent to our Cardinal Archbishops and Bishops and that the hierachy of our country consider and pass upon this question and grant all further relief etc What rot Mr Smith Is an Intelligent gentleman He has been several times elected and has served as President of Branch 4 of the Catholic Knights of America and has also served aS a mem ber of the Supreme Board of Trustees of the same body Why then should even his friends offer a gratuitous insult to his intelligence by making him the father of suchresolutions when Mr Smith knows if they do not know that Masonry and Catholicism are wide apart If the Masons as a body passed resolutions de ciding to enter the Catholic church many people would have ridiculed the idea but when the attempt is made to have Mr Smith father the thought of having Catholics enter Masonry the whole thing Is worse than a farce In America there is no war waged be tween the Catholics and the Masons any more than there w Is a war waged by Episcopalians Methodists Presbyterians or Lutherans against the Catholics but the Catholic church is of divine institution and is as far apart from Masonry as the sun Is from the moon Oil andwater will not mix neither will Catholicism and Masonry There are many good Masons and there are many bad Catho lics but there is no possible cbancefor a fusionTo return to William C Smithwhy should he be made the victim of a practi cal joke simply because he is a Catholic Yet like a truly Christian spirit he bears it all in silence HARD WORK i And Integrity Has Brought W1 M D 1ioght the FrontI I Frank

West Qreeo Street TRADES COUNCIL LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY AUGUST x 1903 r DONT BE BUNCOED Already the newspapers publish advertisements of the Life of Pope Leo XIII and soon our Catholic friends will be solicited by agents for orders As each of the various editions claim to be the only authorized sanctioned by the Holy Father himself blessed by the Pope indorsed by the hiearchy approved by Cardinal bear the imprimatur written by Monsignor etc at least some of them must not be what they claim but only moneymaking schemes No doubt all Catholics and not a few non Catholics would like to have the Life of Pope Leo XIII but they want it to be genuine and cor rect and we advise them to not be in too great a hurry in obtaining it Fine binding neat print beautiful pictures any book printer can supply but the real merit of t andzcomplete life and works of Pope Leo XIII what the people really want is not what a great many will get unless they are careful and are not influenced by the claims of advertisements and the glib tongues of book agents whose 3 business is to sell and get their 1 commissionBetter a little time to seek the advice of your pastor or some one likely to know before

weekHerman Straus and Emory G Johnson Both began life humbly and by r honorablercharacter won success and the love of their fellows Mr Straus from a poor and friendless immigrant among strangers became one of our leading dry goods dealers making lifelong friends of all in prosperity and wealth he was the same genial and obliging storekeeper to cus L tomers never failing to express his gratitude and appreciation for his old friends who years ago dealt with him in his then small store I He made friends and kept them be cause he never forgot his friends however humble his business in creased because he was ever thee same careful tradesman to see that his patrons got what they wanted and were courteously and faith fully served He will be a loss to the city jar he was an energetic pusher in trade just the kind of business men that we sadly need to pull Louisville out of the old fogy ruts draw trade make work and give employment Emory G Johnson was a printer and one of the best till failing health forced him to give up the craft As fellowworker or fore man he earned the respect and con fidence of employes mid employers alike by his fairness and kindliness In his new field in the railroad office his geniality ability and strict attention to duty brought him more success and friends Both were undoubtedly victims of their strenuous industry for they died at an age when in the natural order they should be still fiftytworNI Johnson at fiftythree But such is real American life LAND BILL PASSED The Irish land bill after prolonged discussion and important amendment passed the Howe of commons by a vote of 317 to ao which indicates that the Irish o r tt z Nationalists voted for it The bill is not all that is wanted or really needed to right the land question in Ireland That is conceded But iit is based on the right principle the land for the people to be owned and controlled by them abolishing the class landlord and relieving the people of the restraint of dictation and the burden of rent To change a system of centuries however unjust can not be effectively done radically without entailing evils that had best be avoided by ia gradual remedy The basis being correct the details can be changed if found by application to be de fective and the desired result will be attained in the end The true source oia peoples wellbeing or oppression is the land and its use and the passage of the land bill presages a brighter future for the Irish people The almost unanimous vote in the House gives promise of its adoption by the Lords THE INCIDENT IS CLOSED There seems to be a desire oh the part of politicians and the London news agencies to make an inter national issue of the massacre of the Jews at Kishineff in Russia It has already been definitely proven that this was the act of a mob and not under the decree or law of the Russian Government further that government officials who did not prevent or check the outbreak have been suspended pending in vestigation As the rights or property of foreigners were not involved or affected the wholex matter is strictly domestic between the Russian Government and its peopleFor this reason the United States Government properly refused to make protest or interfere in anyway American citizens prepared a protest to the Russian Govern ment and rightly filed it with the Government at Washington to be presented by the American Minister at St Petersburg The Russian Government refused to receive it because interference with its do mestic affairs by foreign governments or citizens could not be per milted All of which Is correct and with the United States Govern ment the American protesters and the Russian Government the inci dent is closed- Governments as well as indi viduals have their rights and duties the chief of which is to mind their own business Unless their rights are affected by their neighbors they have no right to interfere in their neighbors affairs Massacres and mob violence are deprecated by all as is a family row but so long as only the one government or family is affected thereby it is strictly their own domestic row The American Government would resent any interference by Russia or any other foreign government in the matter of our mobs where only Americans are involved any individual would resist his neighbors intruding into his domestic rumpus There is nothing in the Kishineff massacre for political discussion or international contention the poli ticians and the London antiRussian news agents to the contrary not withstanding Within the past few weeks the Louisville Railway Company tore up several squares on West Walnut street to relay tracks and repaired the street thoroughly Now comes the Gas Company digging up the street to put down pipes A lack of business judgment of the city authorities who should have re- V n t 6 0 quired the Gas Company to put- down pipes while the street was torn up before it was repaired by the railway company The newspaper reports of the ceremonies following the Holy Fathers death indicate that news paper writers should peruse the catechism and rubrics before againI attempting to describe Catholic church ceremonials Their report- might I then be intelligible and af ford less amusement to Catholic readers PRIESTS DEATH Rev Father James B Mona ghan Labored In Louis ville Dlocose The news has been

Regardless of Creed People Have Generously Aided Mother Mary Regina and Her Work WHAT ONE GOOD WOMAN HAS DOlE The Mercy Hospital is one of the chief points of interest in Jeffersonville Ed ward Fitzpatrick in the Louisville Times of last Saturday wrote concerning this worthy charity Jeffersonville was without a hospital until a few years ago when a Sister of Mercy came here with one assistant and established one Sister Mary Regina has done much for Jeffersonville in the way of sustaining this charity and promises to do more The old hospital on Spring Hill adjoining the building in tile illus tration has been converted into a hos pital for incurables in mind and body and will be accessible to all the people of Southern Indiana The hospital while not entirely free is open to the worthy poor without regard to religious belief The charitably disposed have aided the Sisters of Mercy quite liberally and show their appreciation in many ways The new hospital is pronounced by physicians to be the most uptodate institution around the Falls Cities excepting none Sister Regina in carrying on the finan dill work alone has shown what a woman can do when she tries Thus it is that the Sisters of Mercy are doing the work in Jeffersonville that is being done iti Louisville by the Sisters of Charity at St Josephs Infirmary and at Sts Mary and Elizabeths Hospital and by the Franciscan Sisters at St An thonys The Home for Incurables is a new adjunct to the Mercy Hospital A few years ago the Very Rev Father Dep pen was desirous of establishing a simular institution on this side the river He has not given up the idea but thus far the funds for the proposed home have not reached the necessary proportion The Mercy Hospital is doing a great work in Indiana and its fame has ex tended all over the State It was there that the late Hon Frank Burke chose to come when he had to be operated upon It is a haven of rest to the weary and to the afflicted May it continue to grow and flourish in the future as it has In the past THIRTYONEN- ew Memebers Initiated at Joint Session of Local YlI I Councils Members of Satolli Mackin and Trin ity Councils Young Mens Institute met at

their hopes At the same time he thought without being too sanguine they might fairly hope thatt they had arrived at the end of the struggle for Irish rights The positio- from a Parliamentary point of view was a most interesting one He had been1 twentytwo years in the English Parlia ment and today for the first time in his experience that Parliament was engaged in the work of attempting to legislate for Ireland according to Irish ideas If any one paid a visit to the House of Commons they would be somewhat puzzled anyone who did not know what bad been going on for the past few months t find the assembly entirely composed ofr Irishmen During the debates on the Irish land bill English Scotch and Welsh members had absented themselves and Irishmen had shown they could gett on very well with Irish legislation iin their absence Mr Wyndham was the only Englishman and he had got drops of Irish blood in his veinsa good drop who had taken any part in the discus sions All intricacies of Irish land law bad been discussed in perfect amity and on the whole successfully and well by Irish Unionists and Nationalists by representatives of Irish tenants and of Irishl landlords That fact showed what anl J enormous advance had been made At last the British Parliament was beginnin- to legislate according to Irish ideas All English statesmen had honestly ad witted that the Irish land question wasI at the bottom of the poverty and the misery of the Irish people and had been the main cause of Irish trouble and tur bulence and generation infter generation English statesmen had attempted the task of dealing with the question- In forty years there has been forty Irish land billls passed through Parlia meat and at the end of forty years Englishmen had at last come to the con elusion and openly made admission tha if the question is to be settled it must be settled by Irish and not by English opinion These forty land bills had tailed because they had proceeded on exactly the opposite course and the great hope that this bill meant the begin ning of the end of Irish trouble was found in the tact that in the main it was moulded by Irish opinion and so far as the land bill was successful in its work ing it would be due to that fact and in whatever direction it might be proved to be defective it would be due to the tact that upon some minor details the English Government lied preferred to override the united advice of Irish landlords and tenants Ireland was united on the question They had been able to obtain considerable number of valuable amendments to the bill since it went in committee Not one of those amend ments was directed against the interests of the Irish landlords In all essential amendments their claims had the support of the Irish landlords so that he was not troubled in mind at certain rumors he bad seen in English papers to the effect that the House of Lords when the bill went there would be likely to mar the work of the Commons and de stroy the bill because in the House of Lords for the first time in history the Irish landlords would be bound to sup port the essential amendments put into the bill in the House of Commons When the Irish landlords and the Gov ernment supported the amendment it was inconceivable that even the folly of the House of Lords would be enough to mar the great work effected The underlying idea of the national movement had been an independent party in the English Parliament and an independent organization In Great Britain was a selfish policy They regarded every great issue not on its media but oil the view of how it would affect Ire land and the Irish cause They were now told there was a great English fiscal question and that the country was hurry ing on a general election The Irish vote would be canvassed on it but he said to the Irish voters in Great Britain to hold themselves in reserve He knew not what the circumstances might be at the moment of the election Whenever the election came if they had confidence lla their leaders let them take the word of command M In 1885 they took the word I qf command from Mr Parnell If the did tba their votes might be of som value In his judgment they would of enormous value At this moment bee had his own personal views about e fiscal question but he did not say upon I what side he himself would vote were h- an English voter He certainly woul I not vote on the merits of the issue butt just as his conscience told him in th acause of Irelandwither to strike down Government or lift it up or to equalize parties in the House of Commons He might be told that this was an immoralI and a selfish doctrine to preach He didI not know what right people had to talk to them whose Parliament had been1 robbed from them about the morality of their action in cases of that kind H admitted it was a selfish policy They were bound p use a selfish policy if they wanted to see Ireland successful He appealed to the Irishmen in Great Britain lhSn1 the branches of the TJnite1 Irish League and then having prepared their arms and patinefIi perfect loyalty o command then to act as oue man inI furtherance of the policy which was ad vised to theme DELEGATES
