IIKENTucKY IRISH AMERICAN VOLUME INO 24 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY DECEMBER 12 1903 PRICE FIVE CENTS GALA NIGHT Spent by Those Who Attended the Hibernian Social Sessio- nEntertainment In Honor of the Ladles Auxiliary Was a Success A Scholarly Address Delivered by Attorney Newton G RogersIN- STRUMENTAL AND VOCAL MUSIC Rarely has such a grand gathering of Irisbmen and women assembled together in Louisville as that which graced Hiber nian Hall on Tuesday night when Division 1 A O HI held a social session in honor of the Ladies Auxiliary Young and old were there to listen to music of Ireland to hear addresses on Irish and Catholic topics and to encourage the members of a great and noble society the Ancient Order of Hibernians The large audience was welcomed by President Mike Tynan who introduced David OConnell Chairman of the Lite rary Committee in whose charge the exercises of the evening were conducted Chairman OConnell made a graceful little address and in turn introduced Newton G Rogers the well known at torney who spoktt at length on the French Laws of Religious Associations- Mr Rogers gave a graphic recital of the relations that had existed between France and the Holy See for fourteen centuries how that country had been favored with the title Daughter of the Church Then he told the story of Frances downfall from grace how the politicians hal brought disaster upon the country by trying to abolish religion within the confines of the country No nation can be progressive without mor als said Mr Rogers and there can be no morals without religion The speaker devoted some time to the cheer of M Combes the French Premier who is mainly responsible for the iniquitous law which has driven priests and nuns from the fair land of France and made it al w oetrarreligiousJaededucattonaldeaerti Combes was born and reared a Catholic and studied for the priesthood even taking minor ecclesiastical orders Sud denly he broke away from the church and her teachings Where he had once been son and student he became an implacable foe In this respect Combes was like many other foes of the church a renegade Catholic and the worst foes the church has ever had to contend with have been Frenchmen Mr Rogers scored the French aristoc racy for its supineness and cowardice in failing to support Count Albert de Munn who leads the opposition to the enemtes of the republic and church This condi tion he said will continue to exist untilI the people of France arise and take the government in their own hands MrI Rogers address was listened to with attention and was frequently applauded The next feature of the programme was a piano solo by Mrs George Barrett of New Albany She delighted andI thrilled the large audience with a selection entitled A trip from Louisville to Ireland and return via Dixie Mrs Bar retts performance on the piano was pronounced to be the best ever heard in Hibernian Hall and was received with great enthusiasm Mrs William T Meehan

LETTER Addressed to Members of the Y M I by Grand Presi dent Kelly James B Kelly the new Grand Presi dent of the Y M I Kentucky Jurisdic tion is showing the same ability and willingness to hustle for the order lu Kentucky as he did when a private in the ranks of Trinity Council He has just issued a communication to every council and to every member in his juris diction in which he urges all to increase the membership of their respective coun cils so that Kentucky may have two del egates to the next Supreme Council In his letter Grand President Kelly says it is the wish of the grand officers to extend the privileges and benefits of the order to all Catholic men not only by organizing new councils hut urging the old ones to increase their member ship He asks each council to take up the matter and to adopt the best plan suitable to the locality Mr Kelly sug gests that an emblem of the order be given the one who secures the greatest number of new members within a speci fied time that members be credited with two months dues for every new member brought into the council that the respective Presidents select two captains and they in turn select an equal number of members and that the two teams get upa friendly rivalry to see which succeeds in having the largest number initiated the losing team toI banquet the winning team In selecting teams he advocates exciting an interest by having smokers rand other innocent forms of amusement The Grand President also reccomends his brethren in the order to subscribe for the Record that they may thus eontrib ute their share to the

Unknown OriginI Wrought Wreck and Ruin- S Father OConnoll and His Peo ple Feel the Loss Very Keenly HISTORY OF THE HANDSOME CHURCH Flames of an unknown origin de stroyed St Augustines church in Jeffer sonville on Wednesday night The Ion- is estimated at 40000 with 28000 in surance The fire when first discovered was in the tower and more than twenty feet above the pavement The fire de partment was immediately summoned but when it arrived the flames had gaine- such headway that the firemen were powerless to preveut the destruction of the stately church edifice and confine- their efforts to preventing the spread o the flames to adjoining buildings Within an hour after the fire was dis covered the roof fell in Nothing now stands but the ruined walls Aside from the monetary loss the destruction of ths church works an incal Joht OConnell and his parishioners Pasto- and people were justly proud of their church and were continually Working to beautify it They had just expended 4000 in having its interior frescoed The scafllolding was to have been re moved onWednesday The work of painting and decorating had been hurried through in order that the church would present a beautiful spectacle on Christ mas Now the bright expectations of Father OConnell and his people have been blotted out The fire means years of work and inconvenience It wa more than a home for the majority of the humble parishioners Many who saw the fire and were unable to save the church from destruction had been bap tized within its sacred walls had made t1trfirst holy common on there probably they had been married there or had taken their parents there en route to the grave With such hallowed memories many stood and wept Chief Filmore Tyson of the Louisville fire department was appealed to for as sistance and hurried to Jeffersonville with an engine reel and hook and ladder company and although the trip was made in thirty minutes the fire had gained such headway that the work of the additional firemen was fruitless The rectory and school house adjoining the church were scorched and will have to be repaintedSt congregation was an offshoot from St Anthonys The latter was made up largely of Germans origin ally and about the year 1860 the Eng lishspeaking contingent had grown so large that it became necessary to erect another church The people set to work with a will and for three years collected and saved funds so that when the corner stone was blessed on October 8 1863 the new congregation thought they saw their way clear to completing and paying for their church The right Rev Martin John Spalding of Louisville preached the sermon on that occasion Hard times kept back the work and the church was nqt completed and dedicated until 1808 In December of that year the Rev Father Ernest Audran a young priest from Viucennes was sent to take charge of the new church For more than thirty years he labored among the people He found the church 10000 in debt After years 6f work he succeeded in liquidating this debt and he also built a handsome parochial school and later the rectory On the death of Father Audran three years ago father OConnell succeeded to the pastorate Like his predecessor Father OConnell has been a faithful servant of his people and his every effort has been strained to beautify the church And now the work of years has been laid low and only broken walls stand in place of St Augustines churc- hREQUIEM MASS Offered for the Repose of a Sister Ittlaw of Rev Thomas- W White A solemn mass of requiem was cele brated at the church of St Frances of Rome on

Justice to Employes Jff t Cardinal Gibbons the head of the Cath olic church in America has announced his opposition to the sweatshop system This pernicious evil has long been fought by the labor unions and at times the opposition has met with more or less success The stand taken by Cardinal Gibbons will no doubt have widespread influence In his sermon last Sunday the Cardinal took as his text Am I my brothers keeper He said in part My purpose today dear brethren is not to commend to you indiscriminate charity but my aim is to set before you a special class of persons in this city that you may help to improve their condition to redress their grievances and enable them to earn by their industry and hon esty a comfortable livelihood To come to the point there is a class of persons in Baltimore and in other large cities who are employed by proprietors of large clothing establishments Some of these workers are employed in the stores other make garments in their own homes and bring them to the establish ments Many of these workers men and women are compelled to toil in sweat shops of which there are eighteen in one section of this city which are contracted in space and poorly lighted and ventilated They are overworked and under paid After a careful investigation I have discovered that after laboring for six days at ten or twelve hours a day their weekly compensation amounts to JO or 8 And with this pittance they have to pay for rent food and clothing and other expenses incident to jam fly life You can encourage and co operate with that excellent society existing here and elsewhere called the Con sumers League It is composed of women zealous in works of charity and and has already accomplished a great deal in improving the condition of these oppressed toilers and of establishing happier and juster relation between them and their employers CHANGES HOME John T Meagher and Family Will Locate In Washington John Meagher the well known dis tiller left Thursday

administer the affairs of the State during the next four yeats Gov Beckham has served the State faithfully and well in th past and he promises to do even better in the future The only crime if crime

Life December 71902- A year has passed since our dear boy yielded his pure soul into the arms of his Maker How we loved himI The gap ing wound still bleeds Why should God take him we vainly ask Surely this wayworn world has need of strong courageous hearts such as his But truly Gods ways are not our ways Did He call our beloved one to Himself lest the future closeveiled from our mor tal gaze should rob him of those manly gifts we prized so much If so twere better far that that noble heart be stilled in death How could we bear to see the mark of sin upon that brow those clear eyes cloud with the darkening ray of evil But still we can not feel that fate would deal so hardily with him a tender son a loving brother No no Mary queen of heaven it was who beck oned her faithful servant home Let us all go home said he The tender ties with which love bound him to us made him long to have us share the joy which heavens opening portals showed to his brilliant vision Gods will be done Though the dark grave holds his mortal frame his soul has reached that haven of rest where in Gods own time we shall meet to part no more NOW BISHOP HARTLEY A cablegram from Rome on Thursday announced that at

and logic in a toast to his friends assem bled When the mixture was ready he said Swallow this Heres to old Kentucky and her dta tingulshed son Its him and his maneuvers that created all the fun So here we are together to do credit to his fame- Altbough I am the loser I glory in his name Here is to the t i1rwbo is distinguished- in his mind 4 As he thinks he has the latest and the rest are all behind So you see be is conceited strange to say the least And why so foolish would take an able masterpiece Heres to the shoe man who is distin guished in the sole And in his own opinion no one can sole- a sole so old Taking him for granted hes an expert at his trade But I think there are others that can lay him in the shade Heres to the Main street man a busy man is he And you may know he is ready to go when its Seelbachs especially But he is a daisy hale husky and hazy- I like him dont you Heres to the man of means politician be really seems But in his way he has his say and a darn poor say it is Yet every day be goes his way as hot as he may be Yet there are other cooons as hot as he and a little hotter tooto me Heres to the man to my right hes a winner thats my delight For in his name we all see fame then things will beset right To my surprise they all seem wise I wonder if they are next But even though how can this be so when its year after next- BUCKINOHAM The Merry Maiden

tho Black North Archbishop MacDornan Was Primate More Than Forty Years VERY LONG LINE OF SUCCESSION While Ireland is known as the Isle of Saints it may not be generally known that Ulster the Black North has given many precious and bright ornaments to the church It was in Ulster that St Patrick established the first Archdiocese the See of Armagh in the year 445 A D or thirteen years after his coming to Ireland as an apostle Donegal was the birth place of St Columbkille the Dove of the church In the year A D 885 Maelbrigid Mac Dornan Abbot of Derry and Bishop of Raphoe of regal lineage being the thirteenth in descent from Nial the Great was translated from Raphoe to the See of Armagh This Bishop we are told was a man of uncommon erudition and was styled the ornament of Europe and also a man of inflexible justice He was in variably chosen by the princes and chiefs of his country as their common umpire in every j jri teajdoJUttoiTOtttoiT Art instance of the benevolence of this excellent iman is recorded by the annal ists as we are told in the year 908 he traveled to a remote part ofUlster to liberate a captive Britain from slavery On the Feast of Pentecost in the year 889 a tumult was caused in Armagh by Addid MacLaigne King of Ulidia Down and Tiathbert MacMurchara Prince of Oileach of the family of the ONials The former at the head of the Ulidians the latter at the head of those Cinel Eoghaiu Tyrofle disturbing the public tranquility At all events the contest was quelled and peace restored by the interposition of the Primate Mael brigia who deemed it necessary to punish the disputants by mulcting the offend ing Ulidians in a fine of two hundred oxen and caused six of the most active ringleaders to be executed on the gallows Exactly in a similar manner he punished the opposing faction the clan Cinel EoghainThe of Armagh was four times plundered during MacDornans primacy first by the Normans of Dublin 890 under their chief Gluniarm who demol ished the city razed several holy edifices and then withdrew taking with them 71 0incaptives Again in the year 893 the city was stormed and robbed by the Nor mans of Lough Foyle who again hostilely revisited it in the year 898 and pillaged the city The Normans again under th chieftaincy of Godfrid OHimbair sacked the city though not the Cathedral in th year 919 During Maelbrigtas primacy Cormack MacCuillenan bequeathed t the Abbey of Armagh twentyfour ounce- of gold and twentyfour ounces of silver avery considerable sum when we take into account the value of money at thatt period Maelbrigia MacDornan departed this life on February 22 927 after pre siding over the See for a perid of forty two years In the year A D 1175 Gilbert OCaran was promoted from the Bishopric of Raphoe to the Archbishopric of Armagh and was one of the subscribing witnesses toa charter of confirmation of the posses sinus of the Abbey of Newry made by Maurice MacLpcblin King of Ireland about the year 1100 He is therein called the Bishop of Tirconncl The isit granted by this charter to the Abbo- Bishop of this institution are now invested i in the Earl of Kilmorey who is styled Lord Abbot of the exempt jurisdiction of Newry and Mourne Gilbert who ware s told was a pious and learned man made a liberal grant of the town of Ballybachall to St Marys Abbey near Dunlin He died in the year 1180 after governing the See for the short space ofr five years Patrick OScanlain a Domin ican friar and BLibop of Rapboe wasI elected to the primacy by the Chapter of Armagh under a license granted by King Henry III on February 27 1201 The King confirmed his election whichI was ratified by Pope Urban in a bullI dated November 5 1261 Primate OScanlain convened a provincial synodl at Drogheda January 18 1262 some of beingietedthe see and by some of those of th province of Tuam as subject to the See of Armagh by prinwUal rightt cathedral churches the Privy Council and several of the principal njen of the kingdom added eclat and dignity to this synod by their presence In November 1203 Pope Urban issued a bull addressed to Primate OScanlain in which he confirmed j the dignity of the Primacy of all Ireland to the See of Armagh in the following terms Aftet the example of Pope Celestin our predecessor we by our apostolic authority confirm to you andyour successors the primacy of all Ireland which it is well known your predecessors have held firm and unshaken till this time decreeing that all the alch bishpps and bishops of Ireland and other prelates thereof shall always pay to you and your successors all obedience andr reverence as to their primate OScan lain repaired and greatly beautified the cathedral at Armagh and founded house of Franciscan Minorities in that city He is styled in Octavlana Registry as the sixtyeighth archbishop after St Patrick who had presided over the see He diedon the 16th of March 1270 after ruling the see for a period of nine years at StLeonarda Abbey near Dundalk

gratifying to find out that ofI the sixty that voted only nine said yesIYou will wonder how they defended their opinions Well these were their reasons for saying that a man should marry for money First of all as a husband has a11I the worry of the business which is to pro vide comforts for the wife he is justified expecting his life partner to contribute capital stock to work the business and secondly that his wifes possession of money isa mans only sate guarantee Theeother side of the question plainly showed girlewith money is positively at a isoarguedsthat the hard working unselfish who makes the best husband is the on twho takes most pleasure in the fact tits his wife is relying trustfully on him for the provision of the necessaries of life and who dreads having it said of him that he married for money Hence other qualities being equal he would rather marry a poor girl than a rich one and thus the poor girl gets the best hus band The rich girl however only too often falls a victim to the blandishments of the money hunter and enviously watches the career ofa comparatively poor cbuplewho though perhaps finding difficult to make a living find it easy atvery welcome luxury girls but remember that it Is not everything WOMANS INFLUENCE Alluding to the good influence exerted by a kindhearted woman of humble life and retiring disposition a great writer on moral and religious subjects says What was the secret of her power What had she done Absolutely nothing but radient smiles beaming good humor the tact of divining what everyone wanted told that she had got out ofself and learned to think of others so that at one time it showed itself by sweet words at another by smoothing an invalids pit low at another by soothing a sobbing child None but she saw those things None but a loving heart could see them That was the secret of tier blessed power The woman who whatever herstation linI capableef of great scU of love Is ev the one whoI k always doing oootUUratt null OMI DJJt STORE GIRLS Catholic Young Women Have Made Very Gratifying RecordsI Many of Them Are the Solo Support of Their Families Those Attentivo to Religious Duties Are tho Most Desirable COURTEOUS POLITE AND INTELLIGENT The Catholic young woman in the de partment store is numerically strong declares a recent department store man ager in an article written for the New Carmelite Review and he adds But greater than the strength of numbers is the strength of character with which she is fortified She may in some cases be ill adapted to the requirements of the modern store but the instances in which honesty is brought into question are so rare as to be remarkable There is as much difference between stores as there is between homes The individuals who make up the organization of a store leave as much of an impression on the visitor as do the members of a family in the home Some stores seem to have an en tirely different atmosphere from others One will have a businesslike accommo dating air and employes with happy contented faces another will seem to be permeated with a spirit of discontent discernible in the looks and actions of its emp oyes ere will be found something wanting in the management perhaps rules too rigidly enforced or service indicating compulsory compliance instead of voluntary cooperation A shopping tour through the large store districts will soon reveal these and other store char CandC often with good judgment accept a small salary in the batter store and soon demonstrate her ability if she be pos sessed of it to bold a more remunerative position The home life of the Catholic young woman is generally reflected in her conduct in the store and the reflec tion is usually creditable Now every word of this is as true ofI the Catholic girls in Louisville department tores as in similar stores in other and larger cities We might add that a large number of the shop girls in Louis ville are of Irish descent as well as Catholic It is a well known fact that the great majority of our shop girls are beautiful beautiful not in a selfconscious- way but in a modest and unassuming manner and the purity of their characters- as reflected in their countenances These young women do not feel that it is a disgrace to have to work in a store Instead they consider it a privilege and an honor to do something to aid the worlds progress Many of these Catholic girls have not only to clothe and feed themselves but also have to contribute to the support of a widowed mother and yesetoo ofter these girls are the only support of the family And yet they bear their burdens cheerfully and heartily enter livingtmake them no stranger to domestic or social requirements Many of them are gifted with high intellectual attainments accomplished musicians experts with the needle and good housekeepers This same writer tells us and his ex perience is the same as that of managers of Louisville stores that these Catholic girls to be useful most not be Catholics in name only The Catholic young woman who is most exact in the observ ance of her religious duties is a more faithful and conscientious worker than the one who fails to practice the religion she professes to believe The most successful Catholic young woman in the large store is one who enters upon a business career with a firm determination to perform faithfully what ever duties are required in her position and in their performance to adhere to the line of conduct which she has been taught from her earliest years to follow She can always be true to her teaching and at the same time achieve the highest meas ure of success She will find a contrary course more of a hindrance than a help to her progress She should not grumble at the outset if her work seems a task but she should endeavor to like the em ploymentshe has chosen and persevere in it until it becomes a pleasure to her Her faculty of adapting herself to her environ ments will go along way toward lighten ing herlabors and here it may be said that the adaptability steno will olellaccom plish more than experience without adapt ability Bat whatever her occupation IbewUl find that courtesy tteatnw
