proceeds of their annnal outings to the orphans of their respective communities This year the four local divisions of he order have arranged to give a conce and to devote the proceeds to the orphansI of this diocese This idea is a commend able one and will meet the approval of- aU right minded people At a special meeting of the Count Board held Monday night County Presi dent Patrick T Sullivan stated the object for which the delegates were assembled Roll call showed that each of the lour divisions were represented Thomas Walsh reported the proceedings of the various conferences that had been held and the action taken looking toward bringing Miss Maud MacCarthy the talented young Irish violinist to Louisville for at least one concert Upon the motion of Mike Tynan the officers of the County Board were instructed to extend a formal invitation to Miss MacCarthy Attorney Thomas Walsh moved that th proceeds of the concert be devoted to the orphans of this diocese This motion was carried unanimously and every delegate at once decided to do his utmost to make the concert a success Upon motion Couuty President Sullivan and the Presi dents of the four local divisions Thomas Walsh

completing other arrange ments as soon as a reply is received from Miss MacCarthy This talented young violinist is now under contract to per form in a series of concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra She has received the highest praise of musical critics wherever she has appeared She delights to appear among her own people and no doubt she will readily agree to come to Louisville when she understands that the concert will be given for the benefit of the little orphans The Execu live Committee will endeavor to secure several other artists to assist Miss Mac Carthy It is probable that the Audi torium will be secured for the occasion The County Board also took up the matter of arranging a celebration for St Patricks day Nothing definite was decided upoH but it is probable that

Green Street r TRADES UNIDN COUNCIL LOUISVILLE Ky SATURDAY DP11 BER5 1903 SUCCESS IN POLITICS I Why arc the Irish so successful in politics is a question that is frequently asked Congressman Timothy D Sullivan of New York City better known as Dry Dollar Sullivan speaking for himself recently seems to have answered for the whole race He says When it comes to politics you have to b- on the level and follow the Golden Rule Real political politics does not consist of getting hot around the collar early every autumn and t calling the other fellows crooks and F grafters and then forgetting to register The man in politics is selected by the people to look after their interests every month in the year and every day in the month It annoys them as it would you to have people who forget you are alive eleven months out of the year and come around the twelfth month and ask you about your morals We win the confidence ol the people by showing our interest in them all the year round If a boy is going to the bad we give him good counsel to do better If a man is out of work we bestir our selves to get him a job If a neighbor is in hard luck we help him If his daughter marries we dance at the wedding If one of the 1 family dies we go to the funeral And then when we tell the people what we consider most to theii political interest dont you sup pose they are pretty apt to believe us That is politicstthe kind that countsGood forMr Sullivan It is the kind that counts whether it is on the East Side New York or in Louisville The successful Irish politician is the man who keeps his word and looks after the interests of his neighbors who laughs when they laugh who mourns when they mourn who when they are down assists them to rise and r sends them on their way rejoicing POSTOFFICE SCANDALS The report of Fourth Assist ant Postmaster General Bristow on his investigation of the scandals that have stirred the postoffice de partment during the past six months was given to the public through the medium of the daily newspapers on Monday and laying aside all party feeling it reveals an appalling state of affairs It shows beyond the peradventure of a doubt that there was not one but several organized systems of cor ruption in the postoffice depart went Whenever it was not con venient to touch the Government till the people who availed them selves of the postal system of the United States were held up in broad daylight and robbed In other eases people who used the mails for fraudulent purposes were permitted to carry on their nefarious busi ness on condition that they divided with corrupt Government officials Gen Bristows report and the accompanying memoranda from r President Roosevelt are worth read ing and digesting The report of the former is thorough and com prehensive at least as far as his in vestigations are concerned It deals with every feature of the vast stealings that he has unearthed and beats all the lime novel stories that have ever found their way into print Gen Bristow has facts and figures to show that this corruption has been going on in certain branches of the postal department since 1883 In other branches the stealing began in 1893 while otters began in 897andall con i tinned until the investigation began 1last March One strange feature iit N c that the corruptibti Hits been carried on openly and yet for more thanI nineteen years no investigation was ordered no attention was appar ently paid to it President Roosevelt says the corruptionists shout be punished but he admits that some of the guilty are not within reach of the law The Government reports show that not less that 1000000 has passed into the hands of unscrupulous officials though there seems little or no chance of getting back any part of this money On the contrary tbe Government will be put to the ad ditional expense of prosecuting the malefactors The trials of sour are in progress now All agains whom indictments have been re turned have plenty of money and have retained able lawyers so that a long and tedious fight is in progress before any of tbe culprits will go to prison Charles J Bonaparte one of thr leading lawyers of the country has been appointed by the President to assist in the prosecution of thos guilty of fraud It may be tha one or two of the guilty parties maybe punished but the outlook is not favorable The political influence that landed Machen Tyner Bar rett Louis and others of that ill will in all likelihood be powerfu enough to prevent their incarcera tion If these men had broken ia bakers window and stolen a loaf of bread to feed their hungry children they would have immediately gone to the workhouse but because they aimed high and aimed at stealing millons the country apparently marvels at their nerve and allow them to go unwhipt of justice A radical change seems to be necessary in the management of the postoffice affairs Who knows how much rascality is being and has beet practiced in other departments of the United States Government It behooves us all to take an active part in the study of political affairs and to use our utmost endeavor that none but thoroughly reliable men be placed in high as well as low places THEY HOWL IN VAIN The English press and we regret to say a part of tbe American press ate howling with glee over the resignation of William OBrien from Parliament These journal istic harpies are tickling themselves with the old idea that Irishmen are bound to fight about something They have even gone so far as to say that the land bill would not lay the Irish question because Irishmen iff they could find nothing else to fight about would turn upon the measure which was framed to ch innate their grievances The Irish do differ as to the benefits to be derived from the land bill but are the Irish any different from the rest of the world Are not the powers fighting about the partition of China Are not Americans divided in opinion as to whether we had a right to favor and assist the new Republic of Panama Surely the Irish who have done are doing and will con tinue to do the fighting of the world have a right to examine into the merits of this land bill and accept or reject its provisions It took four years of war and many thousands of lives to settle the slavery question in America white there is hardly a possibility of deadly strife over the land question inI Ireland Moreover Mr OBrien says he resigns to promote unity indrhis letter is a decisive and manly one Our Holy father Pope Pius X i1 has given new evidence that be isII- a t friend of the cause of education in opening the Vatican archives to I the students of the world Catho tics are continually assailed with the slander that the church is trying to keep the people in darkness In opening the treasures of the Vatican to the world an invitation is extended to slanderers and bigots to come and search for themselves The Pope and the church has notb ing to hide The present controversy among membersi of the Board of Public Safety bodes no good for the discip line that should be maintained in the various departments under the control of that body If the police and firemen see the heads of the departments bickering and quarrel ing among themselves they will soon choose sides and then fare well to law and order Stop quar reling gentlemen please Working men should heed the words of John Mitchell spoken at Boston last week He said he could imagine no worse fate for labor than to be the tail end of some political party It is very true In this respect labor re semblesthe Catholic church The politicians care little for either aside from working them for votes KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS Chooso Able and Efficient Men For Officers For the Coming Year Louisville Council Knights of Colum bus held its annual election

brought the visitors was discussed Mr OBrien at the close of the interview handed the following communication to the Cork deputation- It is a heart breaking business all round but having scion my best to ex plain to the country the circumstances which necessitated my action the die cussion isabsolutely concluded so far as I am concerned It was only with the most extreme reluctance and wholly against my own judgment I felt myself obliged to write my second letter in order not to seem wanting in respect for the appeals made tome Anything I could add now would only renew the painfulness of the sltuatiop the acute stage of vhich is now happily over There is not the smallest aIbl1ltof danger of any split either in the party or in the league or in the country There will be a per fectly free field forte development of any alternative policy and I will not use my retirement in any way whatever to criticise or obstruct neither Iam certain t will anybody in the country who has any regard for my wishes Serious differences as to policy happen in every country and if an iindividual member of Parliament chooses to retire in order t avoid the continuance of those differences it is the easiest of all ways of securing that the country shall suffer nothing more serious than a passing personal regret I will of course be happy to consult th convenience of ourtriends in Cork as to
