II a KENTUCKY IRISH AMERICAN VOLUME XIINO 5 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY JANUARY 30 1904 PRICE FIVE C- ENTSVICTORY FOR THE SISTERS f lJOftii James J Fitzgeralds Magnificent A dress to the Jury Exposes the Outrageous Persecution of Burch Smith and Their Sneaking Cohorts The case of the notorious Hattie Moore I I against the Sisters and Convent of the Good Shepherd was given to the jury iIn Judge Gordons court Wednesday afternoon and the verdict was for the noblewomen who are devoting their lives tto works of charity and the reclamation of Gods fallen Great interest was mans fested in the trial which lasted nearly three days and was ably fought for the Sisters by Messrs Kinuey and Fitzgerald William T Burch and Dr D T Smith who for some years have been persecut ing the Sisters represented the Moore woman They were desperate in their attempt to mulct the Sisters of 25000 but thanks to the manhood of Kentucky they were foiled in their dastardly attempt Those two worthies have here tofore received notice in these columns but in this case their conduct and utterances were most outrageous and horrible The man Smith sometimes called Deli rium Tremens Smith has by some means been admitted to practice at the bar and in this his first appearance he made the most vile and lying assault upon the womanhood of Kentucky ever uttered by man never stopping until he painted most foully our Girls High School and the female educational insti tutions of the State Butch appeared uncouth and dirty and in every movement showed malice and hatred The two calumniated that which was good It remained for the Hon James J Fit gerald however to take their measure and this he did in an address to the jury pronounced one of the greatest and most + cotryirpinggveruhe a i that temple of justic r So great was the interest that the court room was thronged when the verdict wasI returned Three members Gus Lortz the planing mill man Louis Kleiderer the tailor and Edward Grauman would not attach their names to the verdict which was signed by the other nine Messrs James E Hardy William Hinkle William Allgeier John B Campbell Henry Gray Frank Koenig Bernard Schaepers Alex Myers and George H WehmhoffThis was horrible throughout but that the Christian people of Kentucky may form a faint idea of the depths to which this vile persecution descends we feel justified in giving nearly all of Mr Fitzgeralds powerful plea kindly taken by Messrs Walker Williams Long street First thanking Judge Gordon for his impartial rulings and fairness and the jury for its patience and attention the gifted young IrishAmerican said Gentlemen of the jury you recall that in the opening statement of this case the gentleman who has just taken his seat unfolded a tale of such harrowing details that they challenged your credulity and that I was privileged to follow him and to maka the bold state ment that we would meet those charges with but a single sentence and that was to say that they were as black and fasle as hell itself A bold statement A bold statement gentlemen to make before I asked you to listen to one word of my proof one that should be made with caution But I was so confident of my cause soxonyinced was I of the truth of my defense tbut I said it fearlessly and boldly And now at the conclusion I reiterate that the charges on which they have brought these cultured women front the quiet and sanctity of their cloister J into this court room are as black and false as could be inspired by the low est the very lowest depths apd influ encee of hell itself And I have proven that by their own witnesses At the con elusion of this brief statement I shall ask at your hands a verdict for the defendant not as a courtesy not as a privilege but I aa a right shall I demand it at your bands I have listened to strange doctrines iin this case I have listened to counsel just announce to this jury that a woman privileged to be married and then deprived in the brief period of three weeks of her husband has had fired in her those passions that she can not restrain but forsooth must run like the cattle of the fieldnay pay not like the cattle of the fields but like that lower animal the depraved human beingand satiate her lust Not for my client alone but for your sisters and daughters for your wives and for womanhood in Kentucky I say that is a He pure and simple andl of a piece with the slanderous con sclencless case that the arm of the court has brought you from your business toI consider I have heard in thisI lesson the new doctrine that syphilis Iis fashionable and that it carries with it noI dlsqaallfication that Ulsno badge ofJt I dtehorior but may be looked for at anytime iiBJJ1 place In the person of the constitutioninanly ofr the j U loyalindtruattng wife Gu rl 7 0L1 1O tlemen I am unwilling to accept that I doctrine so repulsive and horrible is it r to my sense of manhood and to my knowledge and acquaintance with the men whom I am privileged to call and address as my friends and as far and as vehemently as I may properly and orderly do it I resent and repudiate that doctrine Mr Fitzgerald then turned his atteu lion to the plaintiff who was absent We are told said be that she is sick this woman that she is weary this morn ing that she has passed through an ordeal the like of which she scarcely anticipated I am willing to accept the statement as true that the plaintiff is in deed sick this morning I am also will ing to believe that she considers as do her counsel that no treatment even if her statements were true she received at the hands of her benefactors that no punishment no beating with straps or sticks or stones or clubs is comparable to that which she suffered while she was plaintiff in this case sitting upon that stand and sitting in this court room But what made her sick What caused her pain What caused her anguish It was the lasb of truth that cut her that cut her otherwise impenetrable cuticle and made her wince and writhe and now believing that there is a vestige of hu manity in her constitution I am willing to accept as true that she is sick and lashUof truth and compelled to confront it Gentlemen of the jury why was it necessary that these details that smell to lr12uJ d be nfoldedI nhi cOJ1t suppose the these Sisters of the Good Shepherd around whose charge with angelic charity they throw the mantle of obscurity to hide from the curious and uncharitable gaze of the cruelworlddo you suppose that these good and faithful followers of their name sake the Good Shepherd have wantonly and recklessly torn the veil that covers this horrible creature and expose her to you Dont you know gentlemen in the history of the institution as it was detailed by the officers of the institution hundreds of women have been received and cared for and housed and maintained and sheltered reformed and reclaimed and sent out into the world to become honorable wives and devoted and loyal mothers whose secrets are locked behind the sealed lips of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd in their warm and consecrated hearts never to be revealed by them until they stand before our common God who will summon us all you and I to render an account of every act and word and deed and thought But it was neces sary gentlemen of the jury when you were required by the power of the law to sit in this jury box iu this case that you should know whose cause you were try ing and it was a duty that I owed you failing in it I would be recreantso far as my poor feeble powers permitted me to show you who she was in order that you might know whose cause you were tryingThe proof in this case baffles beliefon the one hand that in the human race there Is such depravity on the other hand that among the human race in our own town and community there are such women as are the Sisters of the Good Shepherd May I ask you is it possible that there is any or many or few women reared in families as good as yours or mine born of fathers and mothers the peers of yours and mine that will turn away from their fathers door and look ing only to God say Master point out the way in which I may serve you faith fully and all that I have all I have re ceived from your bountiful bands andvirtueIIwill consecrate until my dying day And conceive the Master respond ing to the trembling maiden Daughter if you will serve me pure of mind and pure of heart go into the highways and the byways of the pop alone citiesnot upon the broad and fashionable avenues of those commun ities but in the slums and gutters in the mireand reach your gentle maiden hand and bid a fallen sistet rise and take her home and live with her and feed her and clothe her when every other door in the face of the Christian world Is closed against her when the lechery of man and the passion of the brute have ceased to need her when the negro repudiates her and will no more other when her body is reeking with disease and a mays of fester ing sores take her in and feed her and counsel her and cure her and restore her again to the world a better and a purer womanMasterthy will be done Iam but a virgin young inexperienced the comforts of my fathers home bid me to remain But if this be thy will that I follow this vocation thy will be done I go hence end consecrate all that you u U have given me until you shall summon me to the great eternity and measure out to me the joys of eternity only in cone parison with the measure with which I have discharged my duty And then that woman separates herself and obscures the beauty of her face and the symmetry of her figure with a nuns veil and a nuns habit and In order that all pride may be eliminated from her nature forgets and discards her own fathers name and assumes the name of a relig ious nun in order that if any good may be worked it may not be directly attribut able to her own personality Did you believe or did you know that there were such women Did you know that they lived in your own community Did you know that for years since the oldest of you wrre prattling boys that here in your town such consecrated vir gins were working out what they believed to be the mission imposed upon them by God himself Men I say to you their name is the Sisters of the Good Shepherd imitating that which made the Saviour the peer of all personalities that have ever appeared in history And great and divine as I hold him and recognize him I say that in all his ministry he never assumed such beauty of character to rise above himself if it be not irreligious to say itas when he bent down over the fallen Magdalen and lifted her from her vice and sin to be perpetuated in the history of his life and there now stands out throughout the pages of Holy Scripture no name with such brilliancy and such lustre as the name of Mary Mag jjajen mtaobese Sistersatet1ttml tatingihat one phase of his divine life and this plaintiff comes into this court and asks you to go down to the institu tion that they maintain for the purposes of their mission and raze the buildings and scatter their work and paralyze the hand of mercy and to steel the heart of charity The women who spend their lives here as was testified by the wit nesses without a single cent of compen sation though they live to be a hundred never are paid a single cent They simply get the food that nourishes their body iu order that they may discharge these works of charity They get the clothing that covers ttieir persons and the sole and only compensation is that they have made a compact between themselves and God and they will neither ask nor receive more Gentlemen of the jury in this fight you have the sisters of the Good Shep herd on the one side and the plaintiff on the other And the plaintiff who is she Shall I tell you Did she not herself relate the story A character the paral lel of which I have never had the mis fortune to meet Vomited from the bowels of Hardin county this creature is brought to the tender Sisters of the Good Shepherd and nourished and fed housed andsheltered and protected for all these years to be confronted in a court of jus tice to render an account for it This creature that came from Hardin county rotten covered with a mass of sores Although the sisters intuitively might shrink from the scene and fail and refuse to touch her they remembered the promise to the God they expect to meet and they took the creature covered with running sores into their house and feed maintain and cure and wash her for the period of nine long tedious months and continued their efforts to improve her inhabits of morality and of decency Oh I would not for an instant say aught against the Sisters of the Good Shepherd but if I were tempted to do so it would be to say Sisters glorious are the reforma tions you have worked God alone knows their number and their extent But into your kindly institution and under your divine influence there came one from whom you could not drive the seven devils and her nitric is Hattie Moore the plaintiff in this case draggedIinto court he turned his attention to the womans perjury In the light of your knowledge of her character listen to her story She tells you when she was asked Were you not before you were married an inmate of the poor house No she says with bold effrontery Did you not leave the poor house one of the many times and marry a man and consort with JIm for three or six weeks and again be recommitted aad an inmajte of the poor house Noplshe hurls And were you not caught in the public town the known and recognized strumpet plying your trade and after a piece ofdebauchery that the court would not permit us to name and I did not name were you not confronted by the County Judge when by reason of your deprvityyallwere caught nearly half dead and recommitted tothepoorhouseNotshe hurls I couldscarcely anticipate such perjury even from thii bold creature bat M an o u act I believe inspl ed almost by Provi dence I went nowinto Hardin county on a mission of gnvestigation and I brought here toy gentlemen of the jury and I owed it to youI owe you the best I have in me poor as it is to bring the truth to your ttentionI went down into Hardin county + and brought up the County Judge wbpte testimony was read to you I regret your inability to have seen him upon thstandand to have heard his testimony but you read his deposition in whih he says she was frequently commit ed by order of his court as an inmate to the poor house although she swore o you gentlemen of the jury that she w ebut a casual visitor Now she knew as wllas you know that this is daylight whither that was true or false and she elated under the solem nity of an oath to j ell you a falsehood and injure her alrea y blackened soul I also went down Intq Hardin county and brought from there be keeper of the poor house who was therein chargeMr Dungy can I was glad indeed of his ability to remain over the second day of the trial in order that you might see him in order that you might gajher from the expres sion of his face those indices as to the truth or falsity ofany statement and you saw him and saw him and you must have been convinced as I was con vinced that the entered there repeatedly as an inmate and that he had sought ineffectually to procure her a home and that by reason of Tier black reputation she could not sitcceed and that he gladly when he i9ff the bare possi IUitythatt rq i JtJ1s an institution that would take such a depraved creature named it Jto her and he brought her to the Sisters of the Good Shepherd Did you come will ingly or unwillingly Were you forced to come I was fourteen years of age though a deserted grass widowfourt- een years of age a grass widow and the towns strumpet Did you come will ingly They consulted with my father who has the right and custody and con trol of his children and when he said it would be the best place I came with them Dutbndirect examination under the influence of counsel no doubt in this case she stated that she came un willingly Now which statement do you believe Do yon believe Judge Gardner who has no knowledge of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd save as any good citizen may have sympathy Do you believe Mr Duncan who came up from Hardin county who has no sympathy with the Sisters of the Good Shepherd save that he may have the sympathy of any good citizen Do you believe the woman upon the stand who has already one perjury to her credit Whom do you believe Did they not both say that she came willingly that they counseled her that it was the only place and that finally she came in pursuance to the arrangement withher father Do you recall how that when she was received Mr Duncan was asked concerning her physical condition Why I know nothing about that we had the county doctors to do itwe had the doctors to Inspect them and said Mr Burchor his colleague Have you heard of any They ask the question ph yes I heard about it I heard about the sores running upon her legs and the sores In her month Who told you The doctor Here the speaker was interrupted by both Burch and Smith who were quickly squelched And now gentlemen of the jury if there Is any doubt concerning her physi cal condition name all the witnesses in this case who saw her and recall their answers Would you believe as against that creature the saintly Sister Paul who for thirtytwo long years lived down with those creatures In her efforts to reform them Would you believe that the saintly Sister Paul who has been sent to other fields to perform1 the same work of mercy or would you believe the plaintiff in this case Will you deny the truth of Dr Dohertys statement What interest has he gentlemen Knowing it as you know it and as I know it his professional andsocldstanding in this community what interest has be with one fell stroke to destroy it Do yon for an Instant believe it Do you discredit the nurse who nursed tier and washed her festering sores with her own hands and adminis tered the medicine with her own bandit do you believe its Do you believe the other three girls who were there when she came Mary Parker and the other two you believe that they perjured themselves They have aince absented themselves from the Home of the Good Shepherd and through its influence have become trusted domestics in the one case and lit the other case have attained the honorable position of governesn living away Aral aeparat aiMl apart from tbe Hone of the Good Shepherd one coming G ra from Covington far removed from their influence and the other from over back of Indianapolis to testify that they saw it and they knew it Gentlemen I can readily understand that you will believe it was no little trouble to go hither and you all over the country to get these witnesses but I owed it to you and I have discharged my duty lowed you my best efforts to bring every scintilla of evidence to your attention to prove what I have charged and I distantpartsNo she hurls I never was sick I never had a sore upon me I never was treated or had the horrible disease Whom do you believe If you believe six or eight witnesses including Dr Doherty may not be believed then there Is no room for me in this court house nor for the clients I represent If you will believe this woman with already two perjuries to her credit or to her dis credit if you will believe her as against Dr Doherty as against Sister Paul as against the nurse and her associates then indeed my efforts have been futile But if you believe them as I apprehend you do did not that woman know that she lay for nine months in the coils of deadly disease Didnt she know it just as you know that this is daylight Couldnt she have said Yes or No and wasnt the opportunity presented her and didnt she elect under oath to hurl the third falsehood at your judg ment and at your attention Gentlemen ami fair In this matter Am hfair Q1I AmIsniiniugJb fpjntsfl Am I distorting the evidence Am I in the slightest degree abusing the privilege that I have of addressipg and arguing to you Dont you know just as well as I do that that woman hurled those false hoods in your face When Mr Smith her counsel opened this case I now call it to your attention for when a man makes an opening statement to you in the jury box it is not a bit different from what it would be if he made it to you in your officeyou will expect him to make it good Or if I may be allowed to use a colloquial expression you will require him to deliver the goods Gentlemen Dr Smith unfolded to you a tale of tor ture and with his fingers on his own countenance indicated to you how this girl bad been gagged with a stick in her mouth end how with window cord lashes her hands were tied behind her back and that her body was stripped to her waist and that the blood ran from her body in streams Didnt he tell you that these Sisters of the Good Shepherd seeing the girl whom she was with dying of con sumption and because only the poor girl had burst a blood vessel that the Sister hauled off and hit her in her dying face Didnt he tell you so Didnt be tell yon how this little Sister who walks upon a crutch and is sixtyseven years of age just this high asthe plaintiff herself testified would frequently haul off and bit her in the mouth and leave particles of her lip upon her teeth and that In order to prevent the flesh leaving her lips drew her teeth from her mouth that she might the better do it Didnt he tell you how these Sisters took her and almost drowned her at their direr tion Didnt he tell you this and more Why didnt you deliver the goods and prove even one of those statements to this jury And may I now be pardoned gentlemen if I exhibit zeal in responding to him that the only defense we have in this case was to write under the charge It Is absolutely totally without founda tion false and untrue And you sworn men you must echo that defense because the witness herself was upon the stand and told you that only once did Sister Paul correct her whereas Sister Paula recollection was that she was forced to correct her twice Isnt that in the proof Is there any proof that these Sisters ever approached or ever thought of or conceived of the horrible deeds detailed in the false statements that were charged against them in this opening statement Gentlemen of the jury assuming that the witness the plaintiff In the case by reason of her black falsehoods and perjury is out of the case and that she is out of your con sideration so far as the facts concerning her detention or her reception or ber dis charge from that institution are con cerned I have very little else to say of her Now the court in this case has given you the law It Is a guiding light that you gentlemen shall use in reading and considering the evidence in the case Here the instructions were read Gentlemen of the jury the dourt says that you mutt first believe that she was confined against her will and before you can do it youmustwrite across the open countenance of Judge Gardner and Mr Duncan the words falsehood and per b o r jurer You must notwithstanblng the long list of perjuries through which she has wallowed in this case accept her as the highest expression of truth and that she was confined agrinst her will But I have also brought you other evidence in this case gentlemen of the jury I went to Indianapolis for Sister Paul who was in charge of the class for thirtytwo long years and I brought her here on her crutch She lells you that plaintiff never asked to be turned out of that place except that they would get her a home and that the sister relied lIn conscience child I can not recommend you to a home where there is a family of young girls I can not do it jn conscience But child if you will mend your man nersif you will correct your nameless crimesthe horrible things concerning which she winds up by stating this crea ture was a moral pervertif you will stop your moral perversion if you stop stealing and chewing tobacco slid cursing and using lewd and horrible language I will try if there be a person somewhere in the country to get you a home Did she do it Did Sister Paul do it Didnt she make good her promise She wrote and she implored a woman in the coun try to take her Here is the letter and here is the answer Dont under any conceivable set of circumstances send to my family or to the part of the country in which I reside that vile and unspeak able creature whom you have in your place Hattie Moore Dont turn her out upon the community for decencys sake and for the protection of the community don reC1JP1Uertdher toabomek Aad Sister Paul was her judgment correct The reputation of this wretch had pre ceded her up and down the country Was Sister Iaul acting fairly with her Was Sister Paul acting honestly and con scientiously Oh yes and says that venerable and venerated nun If there was any honorable way in which I could turn her out I would have done so but in conscience I could not turn her out of my door because I knew she would not be safe for twentyfour hours Oh how the Sisters wished that she had done years ago what she has since done left their place and removed the responsibility from their shoulders of turning her out And now was Sister Paul that experienced woman of forty seven years a nun was her experience good and sound Woufd she have been safe twentyfours hours after she had left the convents Influence I have told you what she was before she came there and as far as the court permitted we have told yon what she was while she was there and she herself has told you what she has been since she left there She went to two places to live after leaving the convent and from the first she was discharged as a thief They charged her with thievery and dismissed her from the place And in the second I asked her Tell us were you not dis missed and she bestitated Were you not caught in a nameless act with a man in a water closet They said I was and they dismissed me for it Didnt she say it Dont you know now what she was before and since Was Sister Paul that venerable old Sister correct when she said She will not be safe twentyfour hours after she leaves For humanitys sake I may not refuse to house you but you can go if you wish And oh how they yearned for ill But mindfutaf their compact with God they could not refuse to house her and thus she remained Now is that correct Isnt that the sworn evidence and is it refuted or contradicted But the court says and what he says is binding upon you that all the evidence bearing on the character and reputation of the plaintiff will be considered by you In determining the credibility of plaintiff and for no other purpose Very good then We now meet the charge of detaining her against her will Did you remember what she herself said when she was being crossexamined wheu the lasb of truth if you please was cutting deep and painfully into herdo you recall what she said I want to read it to you from the stenographers notes Why didnt you leave years ago it you wanted to leave Well just simply because Mr Fitzgerald the mother trusted me and she confided in me and I didnt want the mother to lose confidence in met Is that restraint Is that Im prisonment against her will Does that give color In the slightest degree to her charge Is that the reason for all these years you did not leave Yes sir I wantecLto remain faithful and I wanted to remain true and I wanted also to get out right and not jump the fence but when I came to think of it I just thought 1 would go into despair And she did despair and oh nothing in my finite judgsnwnt but the special provi ll I co dence of Him who raised the Magdalen can relieve her of that despair I would be blasphemous and sacrilegious to say penetratethatan agency than the special providence of God himself Here the testimony of the plaintiff was read I am reading from the woman that came Into this court room and asked you gen tlemen to go down to this charitable institution and loot its property raze its buildings turn out its orphans and its niagdalens upon the street sell this property and turn 25000 over to herff Why Because she was staying there of her own free will in her effort to win and retain the affections and the love and the confidence of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd Are not these her own words aud is she not out of court when she uttered them r speakingtells you that these creatures that she was living with were corrupting her morals and that it was a strain upon her charKK acter to be associated with the Sisters of t the GoodTahepherd OhI limit of absurd i Ity extreme ridiculousness is such a statement But if it were true if what c counsel said were true if what she swore to in her petition was true if a vestige ortscintilla of what she testified was true thetactyou kkillinghersuitor for their love and that she wasre maining there because she wantedto secure and retain their love and their confidence Gentlemen of the jury what do you say to that Do you for an instant believe and I read from the record of the stenographer and it will be confirmed by your recollectionthat until she abandoned the idea of securing a place carrying with It the benediction of the Sisters recommenda tion that she remained there in order that she might win and retain the confi Shepherd my memory upon that but at my own expense employedtheexcerpt so that if you mentally disagreed with me milthtdrawthere it Is coming from her own lips and coming from her own lips what else theworldi that the calcium light of judicial inquiry theGoodopen doors tQ all the scrutiny and inquiry that intelligence or malice might inspire in order that you might have the truthand not content with her own statement that she was not falsely detained there as stated from her own Ups we drew our train of witnesses and subjected them to the crossexamination that awaited them and In every Instance the girls have stated that they knew her and that she had stated that she wanted nothing but a home to be procured for her by the Sis jters and that it should carry with it the approval of their recommendation Did not every girl that got upon the stand say she had repeatedly heard that conversa tion engaged in between Sister Paul and this woman And who contradicts It pleaseherconvincing statements Is there a single witness except these two sisters of hers one of whom it is In proof in this case has a similar suit against the Sisters of the Good Shepherd pending In this Very court Adding to her own words the tes timony of these witnesses can you in conscience say that she ever remained there in that institution unwillingly and against her will On the contrary cart you not understand and dont you know from the testimony In this case that as far as the conscience of the Sisters of the Good Shepherd would permit she never remained a day In that Institution with beI permitthemhas submitted that question to you

be expected in these days of operatic flights that his attention would be turned to church music reform With solos pierceing the elements as defiantly as the church steeples completely destroying ones capacity for saying even the Rosary it is something to rejoice at that the father of the faithful is taking the matter in hand and will fix things up in the organ lofts of the country There is no music more powerful nor more in sympathy with the spirit of the church than the Gregorian tones Founded and adopted into the church in the sixth century by Gregory the Great then reigning Pope it has known but little if any change since Coming down t through the ages its antiquity and t wonderful beauty appeal to the present Pope and may we hope before long to see its reestablishment in the churches throughout the world The magnificent Sta bat Mater soulful and trembling is an expression of Gregorian miislc The Preface sung each Sunday in every Catholic church throughout the world is another tender and beautiful illustration of Gregorian tones With the return of the Gregorian music men will be asked to sing which in itself Will be R good thigIt is difficult to get the male singers

To the Editor of The Kentucky IrishAmerican With the formation of the Ladies Aux iliary of the Ancient Order of Hibernians there has come an opportunity of which I hope every true Hibernian will avail himself I am confident that the ladies will because women are always seeking out for the best both in an intellectual as well as material sense But if the men of the various divisions of the Ancient Order will take hold of the opportunity to add to the upbuilding of local musical talent we shall have started a choral class which none of any nationality can sur pass The men must unite with their sister order in the formation of a grand singing class to be known as the Hibernian Choral Society in which the songs of their motherland shall predominate The bards whose lays have touched the hearts of numberless thousands since first those lays were given to an enraptured world must not lie unheeded and uncalled for in these days of a general awakening when brave hearts and willing ones are here tolearn them If the young men having voices enough to only hum a tune will come out boldly and announce their desire to learn the songs which they have heard many a time in the days of their childhood we shall in a short while have a magnificent chorus The Ger mans have their song festivals the French their musical fetes Why not we Are we not a music loving people We can not think of the laborious side of life always Let us take up the melodies of our own sweet songsters study them and put them into a living existence so far as we we are concerned and start the beginning of a spleddid Hibernian

from this city for the Old Soldiers Home at Day ton Ohio where he will spend the remainder of his days among those with whom he fought during the civil war Col Kelly was for many years editor of the Louisville Commercial and had few equals as a writer For the past year his health has been failing and this coupled with the fact that he was unemployed is given as the reason for his decision Col Kelly was a highly educated and broadminded gentleman and in his day of prosperity was a generous giver to all worthy causes Col Kelly fought bravely throughout the civil war espousing the cause of the Union retiring with the rank of Colonel Upon his return to Louisville he became editor of the Commercial and later was made Pension Agent for Kentucky Mrs Mary Anderson de Navarro the famous actress was a protege of Col Kelly and it was through his assistance that she was enabled to prosecute her studies None will hear with greater sorrow of his misfortune than Our Mary Col Kelly though

Zook of the Lecture Committee and the applause that greeted him snowed he was most welcome Mr McDermott expressed his pleasure at again meeting the members of Mackin Council whom he compli mented for their energy and enterprise and was especially gratified to learn that the society owned its own club house and was entirely free from debt a great contrast with his last visit Then ad dressing himself to the young men he pointed out the necessity of jealously guarding character and reputation with successTherewalks of like for the young man who strives to make himself better than others in his calling He declared the moral man would always achieve success while failure was the fate of the immoral and careless one Mr McDermott made an eloquent plea for education advising con stant study and thought upon the social andeconomic questions of the day He dwelt particularly upon the value and benefits derived by young men from Catholic organizations and the great aid received by the church therefrom Mackin Council itself was an illustration of this and its good work and example he hoped would be continued President Shelley in a few well chosen words returned the thanks of Mackin to Mr McDermott and then the council dispatched much business of a routine character the most important of which referred to the new directory the com mittee being instructed to have it published at once

that formerly years ego when a girl under twentyone years of age who had been committed to the custody and care and protection of these Sisters escaped from their Institution they pursued her and brought her beck Who pursued her The public police offi ers pursued her And why did they pursue her Because it was the law and I read to you from the statute books and was not repealed until the enactment of the new city charter in placeintotribunal of this city the Police Court all prostitutes under twentyone years of age Was she a prostitute Was she under twentyone years of age She states it herself That they be committed iand retained until they became of age iand that it was a punishable offense with a fine of not less than 50 nor more than 200 to aid in the escape of any snch inmate Sister Paul says Yes that was true We used to do it when the mandate of the law compelled us to do it but since that law was repealed we have not done so Can you for a moment in anticipation that counsel will Invoke this 1law can you believe for an instant in the fface of her testimony that it had any application to this creature Sister Paul was this woman an advantage or a dlsad vantage to your institution Truth and duty compelled her to open her lips and she says She was positively a disadvantage and in all my long experience of fortyseven years she stands alone as being the worst type of human creature a moral pervert- Deprecating any trifling with the jury le tore into shreds the plea for damages The measure of damagesohl horrible to relieve the measure of damages says counsel in this case or one of the meas ures of damages is that because during these years that she herself remained in the institution she was deprived of the opportunity to engage in the horrible crimes that blackened her soul before she came there and after she left that is the measure of damages and he seeks to prostitute the sacred name of motherhood In connection with it and says because perhaps she was deprived of sooner being a mother that you shall loot the Convent of the Good Shepherd Oh strange doc trines indeed have I listened to in this case that because this woman remaining there for the reason that she herself designates and testifies to because her opportunities for wallowing in the horri ble crime of lechery were cut off that you are to pay her for it Oh Provi dence our Common Father I am not ashamed nor afraid here and now to say that in your inscrutable ways it passes my undertanding that these saintly women who are following the course that you yourself marked out for them should be compelled to come into this court room and have this evidence poured into their virgin ears and have thim sit and suffer it But the answer comes back I sent my only Son into the world and upon his sacred brow the merciless thorns were pressedand pierced his head and in his sacred hands the cruel nails were driven and after He had given up all that heaven itself could give him in the shape of humanity He bowed his sacred head andnot yet satisfied they pierced his dead side and let out the last drop of blood that coursed in his veins Inscrutable indeed oh God are thy ways And Sisters suffer ing with humiliation and pain as you are the only consolation the jury and myself can bring you la to say Look upon the pierced brow of your Master See his lacerated form his pierced hands his open side and say Welcome be the will of God Not my will but thy will be done I stated to you gentlemen with some little feeling that I was asking a verdict for this defendant not as a courtesy not as a privilege but as aright I would ask the jury a favor I will ask the jury one favor and that is when you go to your jury room see to it that not sixty seconds elapse before you unanimously proclaim to the world your disapproval of this bellbatched prosecution Imitate Providence in approving the course of these courageous women who without a cent of expense 1 to the taxpayers of this or any other community maintain and holier the prostitutes of the town adrelocmthem- pick l up the wsifg upon Uw street and v rear and educate them and take the wayward and the incorrigable not yet fallen into sin but on the very brink take them in to the extent of ninetyfive in one class and fiftyfive in another and with out a single cent of compensation take the prostitutes of our community the offal of our lechery the waifs the way ward as a result of their long lives of sacrifice and with no compensation ex cept the food to sustain their bodies for the purpose of effectuating itsay to these women We did not heretofore know you It is a revelation as high and brilliant on the one side as it is black and damnable on the other And then I will say to the Sisters that It was the will of God that your conduct and your mission might be put out in comparison with the lowest of the low that the knowledge may come into this commun yourhomesthem in the name of Him who is the father of all regardless of sect or creed Gentlemen am I asking too much in this favor that I wish at your hands that when you go into the jury room and as soon as he door is locked behind you elapseInso that it will be announced to the world prosecutlona civilized community such things can not go on withoutthcir just deserts TRINITY COUNCIL Members Hoar an Instructive Address by Thomas Ma pothor
