Christmas number In this as in every issue of the paper its editor has striven as best he knew how to do good to let its readers know what is going on iin Catholic and Irish circles in Ire land in the United States in Kentucky but principally in Louisville Jeffersonville and New Albany It has never set itself up to be a mag azine but simply a newspaper a chronicler of events not a dictator but a secretary as it were who seeks to record events as they are c In these days of push and enter prise where the many are striving for the almighty dollar and who seem to think it cau only be reached by trampling under foot their neighbor the Kentucky Irish American has been content to stand aloof from strife and occasionally to warn others against quarreling and lack of charity It has ever sought to be broad in its ideas both from an Irish national and an American political standpoint It has sought to give the people a journal fit for the home and the family to print nothing that would cause the blush of shame to mount the cheek of the purest to be just to all to give praise where it was due to censure only when censure was justly necessary but in all cases to temper justice with mercy If it has dis- Pleased jfcme we regretjftffn the same time r e that no one can plea everybody extend our thanks to the business people who have taken advan tage of our advertising columns and hope that through the medium of the Kentucky Irish American their generosity will be returned a hundred fold At this season when angels sing Glory to God on high and peace on earth to men of good will the Kentucky Irish Ameri can wishes its subscribers and patrons one and all a merry Christ Imssand a happy and prosperous new year ALAS POOR FRANCE Franceswtroubles were nearly over when a few weeks ago Premier Combes announced his wish to retire to private life But the rejoicing came too soon On Tuesday M Combes communicated to the Coun cil of Ministers the text of a bill forbidding all teaching by the re ligious orders even those now actually authorized The purpose is to banish all religion from the country Five years are allowed for the complete carrying out of the proposed law and Us adoption will entail the closing of 1299 schools for boys and 2195 schools for girls The bill also provides for the dissolution accompanied by the sequestration of property of such congregations as exist solely for the purposes of teaching and for the partial sequestration of the property of those congregations which in addition to teaching also conduct hospitals for the in digent It is estimated that the complete operation of the law will entail an expenditure of 5000000 Poor Prance J The waste of in comparison toII money is nothing the loss of religion Look out for another French revolution With the loss of religion there will be a consequent loss of morality After that comes anarchy WtiVTtlEYCELEBRATE Catholics of the Green Bay State are haying a series of celebrations- in honor of the sixtieth anniversary of the establishment of the seeoJ Milwaukee Although the diocese was established on November 28 1843 its first Bishop the Right Rev Martin John Henni was not consecrated until March 19 of the following year so that the Wisconsin people have a period of four months during which to celebrate It was raised to the dignity of an archdiocese in 1875 The Catholics of this Northwestern State dp well to celebrate Their growth is something to be proud of In 1843 out of a population of 60000 people there were 10000 Catholics in the whole State and of 6000 people in Milwaukee 1500 or onefouth were of the Catholic faith And now sixty years later of the 2200000 population in Wisconsin 600000 are Catholics Of the 325000 that the census gives Milwaukee 110000 are Catholics In other words the Catholic population has relatively increased more than the total pop ulation and from onefourth of the population of Milwaukee in 1843 the Catholics have increased to more than one third of the pop ulation A steady tide of Catholic immigration has caused this rapid and sturdy growth The Republican national conven tion will meet in Chicago on June 21 next to select candidates for the Presidency and VicePresidency of the United States Senator Mark Hanna has announced emphatically thof Vin trrill nnt nnUf riflf hp fl Catl if didate for the Presidential nomina tion but that he will not even manage the campaign This leaves a clear field for President Roose velt not only to win the nomina tion but to conduct his campaign as he sees fit Choosing Vice Presidential timber is a more difficult matter Those that would willingly accept the nomination can not have it while those that would make agreeable running mates to President Roosevelt do not care to play second fiddle Many things may happen between now and June 21 The Catholic Citizen the leading Catholic publication of Milwaukee has issued a twentyfour page paper in honor of the sixtieth anniversary of the establishment of the diocese now the archdiocese of Milwaukee This issue of the Catholic Citizen is full of historical facts bearing on the settlement of Wisconsin on the early days of Catholicity in that State a chronological table of leading events in the history of the archdiocese of Milwaukee and many other affairs of interest to the Catholic historians and statisticians The Kentucky Irish Americen hastens to congrat ulate the editor of the Catholic Citizen on his enterprise and on the excellence and taste displayed in the selection of his reading matter General Patrick A Collins was not only reelected Mayor of Boston on Tuesday but was given the largest majority ever received by a Mayoralty candidate in the history of that city This speaks welt for the Hub where fifty years ago an Irishman holding the office of policeman was so rare as to be a curiosity The campaign justclosed was marked by the apathy of the Republicans who seemed from the first to despair of electing their ticket Mayor Collins will be supported by an entire Demo cratic Board of Alderman and will have a majority of Democrats to back him in the Councils While admiring the good taste- tatvnbY t the editor of the Catholic r t r- n t Telegraph in using much of the matter printed in the Kentucky Irish American we regret that 1 he has to wait nearly a week for a great part of his news At the same we can

member of Parliament showed from statistics that more than 120000000 had been sent home from the United States alone within previous twenty five years Sinn there has been a steady stream of em don and the emigrants are just as 1 to the old folks at home as when Francis Maguire wrote of his travels andtheof the history of the Irish in Aareri What he wrote of the ambitions a of the poor Irish girls

Reigned Before the Greeks Laid Siege to Troy St Patrick Changed the Nation From Warriors to Scholarsit THE ANGLONORMAN INVASION in The fact that a correspondent recently asked a local newspaper if there is any such language as the Irish shows how general is the ignorance concerning thet1 early history of the Emerald Isle and itsti peopleMany centuries before Romulus laid the foundations of Rome or Agamemnon led the Greeks to the siege of Troy bardic tlegends which modern research has shown are more authentic than those of Homer give a long list of kings who reigned in succession over Ireland and over a people whose civilization while not equal toS that to which Greece and Rome at their best attained long preceded theirs was SraryS I in its organization of civil and social life greatly surpassing that which Tacitus describes as existing among the Germans in the early centuries of the Christian era The first inhabitants of Ireland werec the Firbolgs a pastoral people They were overcome by the Tuatha de Danaans a manufacturing and trading peop1ee whose knowledge of arts and sciences limited as it was convinced the earlier settlers that the newcomers had magical powers The Milesians a soldier race coming from Scythia either across Britain o as some theorists hold or as is theF better opinion from Spain after a short stay in that country soon got control ofii the island entering into regular treaties and alliances with the conquered but uotI powerless Firbolgs and Tuatba de Dan Ii aans According to the constitution under which Ireland was governed for more than a thousand years the people were divided Into the free and unfree cUss the free class being the descendants of the Milesian legions and the unfree classes the descendants of the subjected races The latter had certain privileges and regulated their internal affairs butt had no vote in electing a sovereign nor to exercise the attributes of pure citizenship J without special leave Though the monarchy i was elective the choice of rulers was restricted to the direct descendants of Milesiaus and his dynasty reigned over a thousand years with but one slight inter ruption While Greece and Rome were s changing their forms of government intvarious ways Ireland remained a limited monarchyfThe Ard Ri or head king had his resit dence at Tara Eochy IV who reigned about a thousand years before the Chris 1 tian era known from his wisdom and justice as Ollav Fiola or the lawgiver of Fiola organized the country into regular prefectures appointing over every county I a chieftan and over every towuland a secondary chief all of whom were officials of the king He also instituted one of the first formal Parliaments of which anything is known the Feis Tara orII Triennial Parliament of Tara to which were regularly summoned first all the subordinate royal princes or chieftains second Ollavea and bards judges scholtt ars and historians third military commanders I Old records chow that these c Parliaments were opened with great formality and their proceedings regulated with admirable orderIThe reign of Cormac I about the mid die of the third century is considered the brightest epoch in the history of paganII Ireland He established three colleges one for war one for history and one for jurisprudence He assembled the bards and chroniclers at Tara and had them collect the annals of Ireland making ofrthe reigns of foreign rulers He wrote a tract called Teagnscna Rf or Institu tion of a Prince which is still exfaut and contains admirable maxims on man ners morals and government He col lected and remodeled the laws and pub lished the code which remained in force for nine hundred years till the EnglishI invasion and outside the English pale for several centuries longer These laws dispensed by jurists calledl Brebons and hence known as the Brehon laws have attracted much attention among jurists and scholars during the last threequarters of a century and in 1856 the British Government appointed a royal commission with a grant of funds to translate them The first publication of the commission was a volume oiled the Seanchus Mor in 1865 The Seanchua Mor was the result of a com mission appointed by the King of Ireland after the conversion of the island to Christianity revise the code of Cormac and eliminate anything in conflict with Christian doctrine This oonitaleeion was compo of three chief BrvhoM three D FL r Christian Bishops and three territorial chiefs or viceroys The ancient Irish were fond of games and athletic sports Chess was a favorite game of their princes and the bards praise the royal chessboards inlaid with gold jewels They were fond of music the bards became so important and Influential that King Hugh was only pre vented from abolishing them by the intervention of St Columba who urged their reformation instead of suppression There were orders similar to orders o knighthood in pagan Ireland from a very early period the two most famous of whichwere the Knights of the Red Branch and the Clanna Morna The Fianui Eirion or national militia was a powerful organization which bad in its ranks the poet Assian wbo celebrated in glow and often exaggerated terms its powers and achievements It gradually became so unruly as to be a menace rather than a protection to the kingdom and was suppressed by King Curbri I about A D280The ancient Irish had skillful workers gold and other metals and many fine specimens of their work are in the British Museum Trade was carried on between Ireland and the countries around Mediterranean from the earliest The export was principally of ores but there was also a traffic in slaves brought from Britain and the continent Though Ireland is mentioned in a Greek poem five centuries before Christ under the name of lernis and is mentioned by the names of Juverna Hibernia by many pagan writers the people became generally known under the name of from their inroads on the Roman provinces of Brittain and Gaul Ireland was known to to the Romans as Scotia Hibernica or major while Scotland wast Britannica or minor Early inC the second century an Irish chieftain i landed on the west coast of ScoUandII defeated the Picts and established a colony tributary to the Irish King After long struggles through three centuries the and their Irish allies subdued the Picts St Columba consecrated a King for them and secured an acknowledgement of their independence Cormac I died A D 266 In the two hundred years following the flag of Ireland waved through continental Europe over victorious legions It was the day f Irelands military power in Europe was slowly contracting its boundaries and the Irish followed their retreating steps King Niall feUat the moment of victory on the banks of the and King Dahi was struck by lightning at the foot of the Alps aa he marched at the head of his army It was during one of these excursions that Patricius a RomanoGallic youth ofII good quality was taken captive and carried a slave to Ireland The story of his escape of his subsequent return as a bishop accompanied by a few priestsI and bis marvelous success in turning he Irish people to the true faith is familiar to most readers of this paper The five hundred years after his coming- in A D 432 may be regarded as thrI period of Irelands Christian and scbol stir fame As formerly she sent herI warriors she now sent her missionariesI til over Europe Monasteries andI ichools were founded and students came to them from all parts of Europe Many eminent ecclesiastics sought the quiet sad opportunities for study there whichI they could not get at home BetweenI the sixth and eighth centuries particularly Ireland was known all over Europe as Insula Sanctorum et Doetorum The Island of Saints and Scholars St Columba founded the celebratedl monastery of Iona long a beacon lightl of religion and learning in the North and one of his students founded Lindis farne on Holy Island on the coast of Northumberland Irish Bishops filledJ mportant sees on the continent and rish scholars were consulted by Charle magne and other European sovereigns About the close of the eighth century the progress of Irish civilization was impeded but not arrested by the incursions if the Danes They first plundered the seacoast towns then made a formidable attempt to overrun the island but were defeated with great slaughter and driven to their fortifications on the seacoast About a century later another slil1 more formidable invasion occurred but Ireland then had a great King Brian toroimhe one of the best chieftains of his time and at the battle of Clontarf Brian defeated them with great slaughter hough he fell near the close of the fight The Danes held on to some seacoast cities but never made any further attempts to conquer the island Three hundred years of struggle with them however produced much demoraliza lon among the Irish and dissensions which led to the AngloNorman invasion vhich begins

Out to Many in Need Widows and Orphans Have Been Beneficiaries of the Moro Fortunate PROSPECT FOR THE NEW YEAR A retrospective glance at the history of the past twelve months shows that all of the local Catholic societies have made favorable progress that while the officers have been able the privates in the ranks have been earnest and that all have worked heartily for the common good First and foremost among the strictly church societies is that of St Vincent de Paul At present there are sixteen conferences in this city and while no new ones have been established during the current year there is a movement on foot to have at least ten new branches organized during 1004 Between 4000 and 5000 was expended in works of charity by this society during the year about to The Rev Father P M J Rock is proving an able successor to the late Monsignor Bouchet as Spiritual Director of the society The Ancient Order of Hibernians has also made great progress during the past year The aggregate increase in mem bership is about 100 Not only have the Hibernians done great work in paying sick and death benefits but through en tertainments of a literary character have aided in the intellectual and moral development of the members More than that they have established a ladies aux iliary which although only a few months old has in the neighborhood of 150 members Its aims and objects are simi lar to those of the Ancient Order of Hibernians In addition to the gains made by the order in Louisville favor able progress has been made by the divisions at Covin ton and Newport The State officers are now awaiting the arrival of a national organizer who will seek to establish divisions at Ashland and other points 1Probab1y the greatest gains made by anyone order is that of the Young Mens Institute The three local councils took in about 200 new members while owing to the active interest of the grand officers located in Louisville new councils were established Owensboro and Bardstown Mackin Council succeeded in lifting the entire debt from its club house although I several of the notes would not fall due for two or three years It still has a balance in the treasury and has had plans prepared for a large addition to its pres ent building Trinity Council has succeeded in laying aside a nice sum for its building fund This council continues to meet at 730 East Gray street but the members are very anxious to secure new and more commodious quarters yet no change is contemplated until they are ready to buy or build their own club house Satolli Council continues to move along quietly but the members seem to be in no hurry to change from their present quarters on Second street The Catholic Knights of America also made favorable progress in Louisville during the past year In fact Louisville may be called the stronghold of the order While no new branches have bee formed in this city of those alread established each had its quota of new members Much of the success that has come to the order is due to the efforts of the gentlemen who compose the Central Committee This body has worked early and late to arose interest in the order and its affairs and toward the establishI ment of a disability fund for the relief of those who through no fault of their own were out of employment and unable to meet the assessments All branches are in good condition and look for continued success during 1904 During the past year the local branches of the Catholic Knights and Ladies of1 America have made strenuous efforts to have sufficient funds on hand to property entertain the delegates to the nations1 convention which will meet in Louisville next May They succeeded thus far in raising 700 and in addition have at tracted so much attention that each of the twentyfour branches in the city have made gains in membership one branch alone bowing an increase of thirty members IThe Knights of Columbus is anoth organization that has largely increas its membership in this city during the year Members of the local council have assisted at the institution of new councils at Covington and Owensboro and these With Lexington Council have formed a State chapter Notwithstanding th organization is in a large measure a social one the knights have given large to worthy charities and now wields Influence equal to that of the older organ izations The outlook for the new year is bright for all of these societies The aims at objects of all are nobk and their affairs 4- n 0 eSXJKBE tCumberland Phone 2138Ye st Home Phone f 2138 SC 503 and 505 THIRD STREET
