aud Dr C H Nevitt were elected to membership After the regular business session the members were entertained with an in structive and entertaining lecture delivered by Judge Matt ODoherty Judge ODoherty advised the young men to make themselves familiar with the history and truths of their religion in order that they may be ready at all times to defend it aggressively and intelli gently He called to mind the frequency with which our dissenting brethren assail the teachings of the church and the churchs Interpretation of the Bible The speaker told how the dogmas of the church were laid down by the supreme head of the church after the matter had been discussed by the doctors of the church how nothing was interpreted rashly or without investigation and re searchJudge ODoherty as a comparison showed how the United States Supreme Court weighed and considered every thing how even the National Govertuent frequently appealed to the supreme judi cial body for the interpretation of laws and IfbWwheu the United States Supreme Court had once decided no power on earth could go behind it So it is with the supreme visible head of the church said Judge ODoherty When Rome spoke that settled matters that were in doubt in the teachings of the church This be said was another proof of the divine wisdom of t our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who by establishing such a supreme court made it a model for the civil governments of the world Judge ODoherty also reviewed the present condition of society where divorces were running rampant On the other hand the Catholic church preserved the satMtty of the marriage tie made matrimony a sacrament of divine institu tion and was not only the protector but the creator of real society Judge QDobertys address was heart ily appreciated by the members of Mackin Council WELL PLEASED Was YardmasterTorpey With His Pretty Christmas Presents Joseph W Torpey the able and energetic general yardmaster of the Louis ville Nashville railroad in

Chosent John Redmond Presided Over Mass Meeting in Dublin ISIR THOMAS ESMOHDBS A mass meeting was recently held in Dublin to discuss the erection of a national monument to the heroes of 98 on Vinegar Hill The Hon John E Redmond presided and among those present were the Lord Mayor of Dublin Sir Thomas Esmonde and many other illustrious Irishmen Among other things Chairman Red mond said that it was with the greatest possible pride that he had come ther that night It was a holy and whole some thought to honor the dead and especially to honor the heroic dead who died for Ireland That was the motive and the thought that had brought them together in that room tonight When the centenary of the insurrection ofjD8 came around all over Ireland the people felt it their duty to come together and erect memorials to the heroes who then fell for Ireland and he was glad to know that in that work the County Wexford which was the center of the greatest struggle ofall did its duty Already there had been memorials erected in honor of the Wexford heroes of 98 in Arklow Gorey Bplavogue and in the town of Wexford and theyWexford men bad reason to be proud of th strength shown by their fellow oountry men of today The project they wer assembled to support tonight was some what different from these Those memorials were more or less local in their character The monument in Bolavogue celebrated the fame of Pathe- John Murphy And so on in each locality the memorial had been erected moreor less to the memory of one man orKroupofmenamongtheinsurgentsI were now to support was something more tbau that It was a memorial which would speak for all ages in the future to the undying glory Of the men of the County Wexford as a whole because there was no spot in the whole County Wexford where a county memorial could be more fittingly erected than upon the summit of Vinegar Hill After all it was in Wexford and fn Wex ford alone that the rebellion was a real ity The insurrection of 98 was to a large extent the insurrection of the County Wexford alone and unaided and- a memorial on Vinegar Hill would not be simply a memorial in honor of the men of Wexford but would be a national memorial commemorative of the insur rection of 98 For that reas6n he was of opinion that when the Wexford men bad launched this project they would be able to appeal with confidence of success to the Irishmen in every part of Ireland and of the world to aid them in erecting on the historic bill a memorial that would be worthy of the sacrifices of Ireland in this historic year of 98 It was now fully twentyfive years since when a very young politician indeed he publicly stated in Wexford that he thought that the duty of the men of the county was to erect a memorial on that hill It had many advantages apart from its historic associations The magnificent site dominated the whole country and he hoped uponewould such a memorial as would to all future generations of the children of their county teach lessons of selfsacrifice heroism and patriotism He could say for their countrymen in America that they would be generous in their response At the conclusion of Mr Redmonds address a resolution was adopted ap biemorialdtp adoption Sir Thomas Es monde spoke in favor of the resolution and said the people of Ireland were in debted to the men of 08 for having given them a magnificent Inspiration and for hadding down to them undiminished the spirit and traditions 6ff Irish nationality He suggested that the memorial be around tower on the summit of the hill andestimated the cost at 10000 A fund in aid of the memorial wits opened at once CHILDRENS CHOIR The childrens choir at St Louis Ber trands church upder the direction of the Rev Father Lawler O P Is win ning great praise for

consecratedthe first Roman Catho lic Cathedral that has stood in the metro politan See of England since the reforma tion a period of 350 years The cere monies of enthroning the Archbishop and consecrating the new Cathedral were attended by grand pageants The im mense edifice was crowded with church dignitaries from all over Englandand their robes of office lent gorgeousness to the scene of splendor The costly mar ble inlaid throne a memorial of the late Cardinal Vaughan was used for the cere mony of enthronement Priests Bishops abbots and other dignitaries formed in profession and preceded Archbishop Bourne to the sanctuary So many were in the procession that it took twenty minutes for the last to enter the sanc tuary After his formal enthronement Archbishop Bourne consecrated

education at Louvain Univer sity He was ordained in 1884 and began his work as a priest in England He has been eminently successful in all his un dertakings and is noted for his love of learning and devotion to duty As a matter of course he will by virtue of his office asATchbishopofWestminaterfbe named as Cardinal and will be a worthy successor to Cardinals Wiseman Man ning and Vaughan the three eminent churchmen who preceded him as Arch bishops of Westminster since the restora tion of the Catholic hierarchy in 1850 The new Cathedral is a mammoth and magnificant structure In 1865 Cardinal Wiseman projected plans for raising finances for the edifice but died before he saw any definite results In the same year plans for the building were drawn under the supervision of Cardinal Manning but it was not until eight years ago that work on the structure was begun The late Cardinal Vaughan blessed the corner stone Before the corner stone was laid 250000 had been collected Although the work has progressed steadily since then the immensity of the edi fice lenthened the period of its erection to eight years Collections for the new Cathedral have been taken up all over Great Britain and many large individual donations have been made toward its erec tion Thus far it has cost 1000000 and although it is by no means completed It starts as a house of worship free from debtThis stately edifice is 360 by 156 feet and the height of the nave is 117 feet The general view of the inner walls is as yet one of bare rough brick It is in tended to cover the lower walls and the piers to a height of forty feet with marble The upper walls the vaults and concrete domes will be decoratedwith mosaic work illustrating the history of the church It is the intention not to carry on parochial work in connection withthe Cathedral but to conduct it in the old time manner of Cathedrals a place for grand ceremonials At the same time religious societies will assemble there from time to time and the public will be admitted whenever any ceremonies are in progress BETTER OFFICE Frank G Adams tendered his resig nation as Supervisor of Streets Western district to the Board of Public Works on

AND MEASURES Alderman Abnei Harris created something of a stir in local circle last week when he introduced an ordinance abolishing the Bureau of Weights and Measures He was backed up by Alderman Wallae i Embry but fortunately things are not done in too great a hurry by the General Council If thes gentlemen can show any goo reason why the bureau should be abolished the Kentucky Irish American will have nothing to say Since no reason has been brought into evidence save that Messrs Harris and Embry want the office abolished it is within our province to be heard- The man who gives short weight and short measure is more danger ous to any community than a counterfeiter The National Government spends hundreds of thousand of dollars and often millions a year in capturing and punishinj people who counterfeit the coin of the realm Money is only worth to us what it will buy If we cannot buy food raiment fuel light etc our money is valueless Thi people know this and have math standards of monetary value ac cordingly We know that ar American dollar is worth 100 cents Why then should we not make a pound a pound and a bushel Ia bushell just as well It is only too well known tha there are unscrupulous merchant who will give short weights anc short measures This evil it may- bek impossible to totally radicate but by prompt action against the guilty ones the evil may be reducec to a minimum When those dealer Y who are inclined to take advantage of others know they will be pun sled if caught with short measure r bermore than apt to mend their ways and see to it that their weights and measures are just what the law orderedIn there was for years general complaint regarding short weights and measures Two year ago the Bureau of Weights and Measures was created by ordinance and Frank Dugan was installed as Inspector He went to work vigor ously and succeeded in procuring many reforms He began with the people who were most complained against the hucksters Many oi them were honest but not all Inspector Dugan however inaugu rated such reforms as compelled them to deal honestly with their patrons or else get out of business He has worked among different classes of merchants and in various parts of the city and is prepared to show from his books that he has intelligently attended to his duties The Bureau of Weights and Measures was not necessarily intended to prove that our merchants of high standing and acknowledged integrity were honestperish the thought And yet one of the chief movers against the bureau is an Alderman elected by the people because he was honest conscien tious and public spirited He claims that his scales were only inspected once in two years It can not be possible that the gentle man from the First ward is grow ing ticklish about his own virtue The cost to the city for main taining this bureau during the past two years has been 3000 per annum2OOO for the Inspector and 1000 for his assistant Surely o 3000 per annum would be well spent if it gave the people good weights and standard measures Our General Council will not be 4 penny wise and pound foolish 11 1 n LEGISLATIVE PROBLEMS The Legislature of Kentucky will meet in regular session at Frankfort next Tuesday and will con tinue in session for a period of sixty days Every member of both houses will go to Frankfort determined to do something for his particular constituency Each one will have one or more bills in his inside pocket which he will want to see passed It is to be sincerely hoped that in the general rush for individual hon ors and sectional measures the gen eral good of this grand old Com monwealth will not be overlooked Too much government becomes tyranny Too many laws are worse than no laws at all No doubt it would be better for us all were there less laws and that those laws that are enacted were duly enforced At the present time it seems that the Legislature ought to have com paratively speaking an easy task Not many new measures need en actment but some few laws would seem absolutely necessary It would be better for the Representatives and Senators therefore to settle as speedily as possible on those meas ures that are most necessary for the wellbeing of the people and devel opment of the State and then to proceed to the drafting of these en actments in the most effective form One of the measures most talked of at the present time iis he uni form school book bill The cause of education should be one of the leading endeavors of every State If it produces bright cultivated broadminded children the grown up population will take care of itself At the present time the education of youth is sadly neglected in the rural districts of Kentucky One system of school books may be used in one county and another in another county In this way there is little or no systematic work along educational lines It is intended to remedy this by providing a uniform system of school books for the en tire State Of course this will not affect the public schools of Louisville and other large cities but will perhaps make them models for the rural districts The measure ought to be a good one and should be care fully drawn Then too a new capitol is badly needed The present building is not only a disgrace to the State but is a menace to the lives of the State solons and people who have busi ness within its precincts While a bill providing for a new State House is not as urgent as the uni form school book bill it is never theless a necessity- In order that Kentucky should take her proper place at the com ing Louisiana Purchase Exposition her Legislature should provide money for a splendid exhibit and furnishings for the Kentucky build ing at St Louis It used to be said that Kentuckians are as poor as poverty but as proud as Lucifer Well Kentucky can no longer be called poor but her sons are still as proud as ever Individually they have come forward generously in their determination to make the Bluegrass States exhibit at the Worlds Fair a success But this is not a case of individuality Ken tuckys motto is United we stand divided we fall We want to present a solid front for Kentucky and show to the world that our State motto is not the mere empty vaporing ofa boastful and vain glorious people The questions of good roads of liberal laws governing railroads industrialenterrises consideration by the Legislature o The Kentucky Irish American has every hope that this body electe by the people to make laws for the people will do its duty Moreover it has every confidence that Gov Beckham will see that the laws en actedwill be faithfully executed At a recent meeting of the Federated German Catholic Societies of Buffalo the Right Rev Bishop Colton who was a guest of honor gave utterance to the following sentiment We heard from the second speaker on the great question of the day the question of capital and labor Now my dear people workingmen as I know you are the most part in all your difficulties about capital and labor try to keep in mind this one great truth namely that there is a God above us the God of right and justice the God of all of rich and poor of master and workman of employer and employe and try afar as possible to have all your difficulties adjusted with the God above both sides doing justice onto other according to the eterna justice of God Do not forget that the beginning of the year is the best time to mat good resolutions One resolution worth making and keeping is to resolve to advertise the goods yot have in stock When you do ad vertise remember that the Ken tucky Irish American is widel read and it circulates where man other local papers are unknown If you are not in business and have nothing to advertise do not forge the Kentucky Irish American Worlds Fair popularity contest The goal is six months off and those who are desirous of entering the race should do so at once Watch the paper and vote for you friends All Kentucky mourns the pres ent serious illness of former Gov John Young Brown Gov Brown has always been more of a states man than a politician He has always stood for what he though was right and has had the courage to express his convictions in strong language He will go down in history as one of Kentuckys great est Governors The Kentucky Irish American hopes that he will long be spared to his family and State A Catholic holding public office cant represent the Catholic if he doesnt read a Catholic paper says the Catholic Citizen of Milwaukee That is perfectly true and yet in nearly every city are to be found men who call them selves Catholics and seek public preferment at the hands of Catholics who never see the inside ofI Catholic paper The theater disaster in Chicago on Wednesday was a terrible but forciful lesson to those city authorities whose duty it is to see that theaters are properly provided with fire escapes and exits It would tx well for Col Tilford to make a care fui examination of our local theaters WORTHY CHARITY ucfcre to Be Given For the Benefit of St Anthonys Hospital January 27 The ladies who compose the St nthonya Hospital Sewing Society are preparing to give a euchre for the

congratulatory letter from National President James E Dolan and though its members feel gratified with the recognition of their services believe that the entire credit is not due to them Hence the following New Year greeting- Is issued by the State officers to all Hibernians in Kentucky Brothers We have just closed a year that has been to Hibernians everywhere a source of general satisfaction The order is growing numerically and financially throughout the Union We take particular pride in the fact that Kentucky has shown her proportion of these gains To you and each ot you we wish to say that our labors have been lightened by your endeavors during the past year It is almost unnecessary to recall to your minds the successes of the Irish ield day the organization of the Ladles Auxiliary andthe various entertainments given by the order in Louisville and in Covington No officers ever won a battle without the aid of their army and we beg to say that the army of Hibernians in Kentucky have aided us to win several battles during the past year when all but hope had fled Trusting that you will return to the fight in the new year with renewed vigor determined to aid- an IB the projects

looked impatiently towards the front door listened to every sound and finally murmured to himself Still no sign of herl And yet she usually out so early Probably the child keeps herl He bit his lips as he mentioned the- child for It was that In truth whir id wayhisof The little one was ten years old and blind from birth Henry Romer was a goodhearted man who did not tonight se of what we owe to misfortune but that Ada always thought first of her orphaned sister Madge that she herself In the few hours they could be together was never there exclusively for him longerEvenmight have chatted so well in the window sagherto y after the first words with Directly I must go up to Madge just once more before she goes to sleep Then I wont disturb you he had said curtly and had taken his hat and leftNow the front doom opened It w she at last He thought of how he had come there the morning after the engage meat at the same early hour he still saw the happy lighting up of her brown eyes edSa had crept over their happinessshe came out pale with eyes red from weeping aiand when she saw him she started You here Harry Yes as you sec I must have been very far from your thoughts since you are so startled- I didnt expect you so early She spoke slowly in a weary tone her lips did not smile and her eyes fell quickly when they met his He offered her his arm but she did not notice iitt or pretended not to They took a few steps side by side finally he begani with forced calmness I came to have a talk with youa serious talk We parted yesterday even ing in a bad humor that mustnt happen again No that mustnt happen again she repeated softly I dont know Ada he continuedI whether you made it very clear to your becomingjI thought oftthat all night long and I of nothing said I ought to have done it at the very beginning but I was so happy I didnt think Now I understand myself WellHe at her smiling She ha recognized her wrong and confessed ittI will gladly take all the blame on myself she went on in a trembling voice You cant help not liking little Madge He shrugged his shoulders iin voluntarily And so I cant reconciler the duties I owe you and those I owe 1lit- tle Madge Your duties towards your little sister would of course be willingly assumed by your Aunt Mary said Henry coolly She smiled faintly The corporeal care certainly Butt Harry the child has nothing but me and my love of which I can not deprive her of the smallest part And you demand more than that If you mean by that that I claim the first place in your heart and thought yes he replied That is my good right You seel You would regard every token of love every thought which I have for little Madge as a curtailing of this right as you do already It would be an everlasting torment that the three of us would have to suffer And ther- eoreshe f hesitated Therefore he asked feeling a pain ful tension She said nothing but drew with shako ing hand a ring from hsr finger a lift ring with a cluster of small diamonds and held it out to him You can do that he cried starting back I have reflected as best I couldwas her answer I know of no other wayon out IAdafleet we are carrying on no childs playj I j If you give me back the ring then allover is between us foreverliI i She had turned pale as death her eyes stared past him into vacancy Take it she said in a hollow voice He took the ring and flung it away She saw how it described a flashing bow in the sunshine and then fell in the grass of the grasplot adorned with blooming shrubs i Take IU said Henry laconlcall and turning on his heel he wsk moodily away She stood motionless until she heard I the lattice gate shut then she pressed her hands against her eyelids and said in stow moaning tone I cant do otherwise I cant do otherwise I love him too much but my poor little blind darling Ii Ada where have you been cried a clear childs voice as she stepped into the house again It was little Medge a llttfacewhich one so often sees in the

What she would do with t in case she found ft that she had not thought about She could not have told just as little as she knew why every ti the garden gate opened she listened forff- w Henrys step She did not even know whether she wished it for had he come they could only have parted again like the last time But still she listened for days and days Ada said little Madge one evening when she already lay in bed and her sister stood beside her doesnt Dr Harry come here anymore She had never been able to nccusto herself to name her sisters fiance otherwise i No he doesnt come any more 1
