f kranz Hall k- h f IIPRESSIYESERVICES OMHURSDAY r S- It is hardly necessary for the Kentucky Irfsh American to call upon the people of Louisville and the Fllls Cities of Irish descent to participate in the St Patricks day celcbration under the ausrices of the Ancient Order of Hibernians at Lieder kranz Hall on nextTbursday evening It is fitting that the Hibernians should take the leading part in the celebration of St Patricks day as it is the oldest Irish society in existence and its membership in Louisville Jeffersonville and New Albany is larger than any other society Surely no other Celtic organization will be jealous of the Hibernians in giving the chief celebration of the day The entertainment will be of a high order consisting of musical and literary selections rendered by the best local talent Ladles and gentlemen of high musical and literary ability will partici pate Llederkranz Hall Sixth and Vial nut streets where the entertainment isj to be held Is limited in its capacity It does not hold as large a crowd as the Auditorium but it is a delightful place to give an entertainment of this character as every word can be heard It is im portant that those who desire to attend be there early for there is no doubt that on the night of the entertainment no matter how inclement the weather may be the hall will be crowded The proceeds of the entertainment will be devoted to a charitable purpose of the organization and those who do not feel like attending should urge their friends to do so Seats will be sold only at the ba1J e price of almIsslon being fixed ty fivecenfs 4 Chairman Mike Tyuanhas announced the names of those who will take part inp the celebration and others may be added at the meeting to be held at Hibernian Hall tomorrow night when the pro gramme will be arsanged into numbers Emmet Slattery the young attorney will be the orator of the evening add Hon Thomas Walsh will read a poem written for this occasion Miss Bee Mullarkey and Miss Holland are ex spected to render n duet also Miss Katherine McGrath and John Reckten 04wa1d Solos will be sung by Misses Loretta Cassidy Josephine Hoertz and Julia Kelly and Mr and Mrs George Barrett will again be heard if they can arrange to be there Little Miss Rodgers daughter of the attorney who has won high praise for her performances on the piano will render a couple of selection J Sylvester Grove the great baritone S singer will also take part and John Green and a selected quartet will add much to the splendid programme The celebration this year will really begin tomorroy morning when the Hi bernians of Louisville will spproach holy communion in a body at St Patricks church Every member of the order is t expected to be there at the 630 mass and the sight they will present will be most edifying and one long to be remem bered They will be accompanied by the St Vincent de Paul Society and the Catholic Knights and the clergy and men of St Patricks will extend every courtesy to all who may be present 0 Thursday morning at St Patricks church the feast of Irelands patron saint will be observed with services of unusual brilliancy The handsome altars will be ablaze with lights there win be an excel lent sermon on St Patrick and the choir one of the best in the city will be a largely augmented for the occasion Prof Perry will preside at the organ and a musical programme arranged especially for this day will be rendered Of course there will be masses in all the Catholic churches that day but nowhere will they be celebrated on the magnificent scale contemplated at St Patricks From the foregoing it will be seen that the sons and daughters of the Emerald Isle In Louisville are still loyal in their devotion to their great saint and there is everY reason to believe that in the evening Liederkranz Hall will be thronged with friends of the Ancient Order of Hibernians to bring to a fitting close a- very proper celebration the day SPRING RACING t Secretary Price has announced

in the law whichwould confer the benefit of the relief fund to those in arrears for dues It was argued that If such change wer- enideItwould not be long until perhaps adjust demands on the treasury

Washington after spending a few days here in Louisville The memo ber from this district has been active since the opening session and has given much of his time and attention to mat ters pertaining to Kentucky His speech on the Hepburn bill elicited high praise and stamped the new Congressman as one who may at any time become a leader in the House During his stay here Congressman Sherley was seen by a representative of the Kentuckey Irish American He said the bill to erect a monument to Commo dore Jack Barry father of the American navy met with his hearty approval and would receive his vote when reported Our member thought there might be a change in the inscription suggested as in his opinion it was Paul Jones who was founder of the navy However that was a minor point and Hibernians and pa triotic citizens everywhere will be glad to learn that Mr Sherley will be for the bill and recognition pf the services of the distinguished Irish naval hero of the Revolution Do SUPREME PRESIDENT

Liberal t K Offer i HOW TO SEE GREAT WORLDS PAIR jNo other newspaper iin Kentucky has made a more liberal offer than the Ken tucky Irish American in the matter ot affording its readers an opportunity of attending the great Louisiana Purcbas 4 Exposition in St Louis this year The offer is open to everybody The Kentucky Irish American offers three prizes one to the most popular married couple another to the most popular single lady and a third to the most popular single gentleman To each the prize will be a free round trip to the St Louis Worlds Fair with a week at the Liudell Hotel one of the finest houses in St Louis The sole test of popularity wilt be the number of votes cast through the Ken tucky Irish American The subscription price bl a year and with each dollar paid a contestant is entitled to fifty votes in addition to the ballOts which may be clipped from the paper each week Sub scribers who are in arrears will also be glen fifty votes for every dollar paid in The great fair will open in April and there Is now little time left to prepare for it All the nations on earth will par ticipate in the Worlds Fair at St Louis this year and everybody concedes that the show will be larger grander and more interesting in every way than was the great Worlds Fair in Chicago in 1892 People from all over the world will attend There is a great Irish popu lation in St Louis Tile Irish exhibit at the fair will be large fled interesting All the Irish societies will be represented No one can afford to miss attending this fair for itlsnot likeIvthat uofauh magnitwcwihleverbezie11 in this cout try again The attendance from Louis yule and from Kentucky generally will be large The State of Kentucky has erected one of the finest buildings on the grounds and the exhibits from all parts of the State will be very interesting and in structiveThen will also be the opportunity of attending the big national convention of the Ancient Order of Hibernians when there will assemble the greatest gather lug of Irish men and women ever wit nessed in America Hibernian military companies from all parts of the country brilliantly arrayed and numbering thou sands will participate ina parade that will equal if not surpass the one with which the exposition will be opened The military will camp at the lair The Lindell Hotel where the Kentucky Irish American has arranged for the en tertainment of its guests is one of the leading hotels in St Louis The accom modations are strictly first class in every respectDuring the past ten days greater in terest has been manifested in the popu larity contest and it is probable that several thousand votes will be polled during the next few days Now is the time to subscribe for the paper which is certainly worth a dollar a year and with each subscription you are entitled to cast fifty votes for your favorite candidate Since last week the friends of Thomas Dolan and wife have gone to work in earnest it being their intention not to stop until they have cinched the fitt prize for the worthy couple they favor This week Dolan and wife received a very handsome vote and now lead the entries from the West End Those who are for John Hennessy of the Louis yule Nashville have not been idle They say they will keep the man from Limerick in the lead one good old Irish lady declaring that every family in the Dominican parish will subscribe for this paper and vote for John and his amiable wife to be our guests at St Louis And there Is Dan McKenna another contest ant whose strength must not be under estimated Dan wants to seethe whole show especially the Irish exhibit and hear the big band from Ireland play the music that stirs the heart of every true Irishman Votes for him are being held back but when they are cast his sup porters expect to land him iu first place The greatest interest however centers in the race between Lieut torn Fitzgib bons Frank McDonogb and Charles Raidy This is thus far the Derby event of the contest Each of the three has a number of earnest workers out therefore it can not yet be predicted who will be first past the post There is no material change in the standing of the single ladies but as four months remain for voting the interest will yet equal that in the other two races The weather will be fair when the young ladieacan begin an active campaign for the price Every one whose name has been entered for this great Worlds Pair trip should now appredation liberal oerDOIIffoverlook the ballot that appears in its columns each wek o Iin 1 1EMMET SLA

evening the Irishmen of the city were given a pleasant surprise when the telephoneswere brought Into play announcing the arrival in Louisville of DennlsE Ryan National Organizer of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Since the first of the year Organizer Ryan has been devoting his attention to the order in the Southern States his great success being mentioned in these columns from timeto time As soon as State President Keenan learned of Mr Ryans presence he called1 up this office and afterward all the State and county officers whom he could reach requesting them to meet the distinguished visitor at the meeting of Division 4 Our repre sentative was the first to make known to President Hennessey the coming of the national representative and at once Division 4 prepared to give him and the accompanying officers a real Irish welcome such as is characteristic of the Limerick division Business was hurriedly dispatched anticipation of their arrival Walter Henley and Pat Mulloy were reported off the sick list but the illness of John McEHlott John OConnor dnd Corporal John Reilly still continues the latter having been taken to Sts Mary and Elizabeth Hospital to undergo an operation T U Thursday The proposition of John Holland was received and the order of business about completed when State President Keenan State Treasurer Butler and County President Sullivan entered with Organizer Ryan i ia The arrival of the visitor was rath- eraipectkt erwisetbJlawoJ1havbeen tlirongedTbls Vas explaip by President Hennessey when introducing the national representative of the order who is a genial gentleman and an orator of no mean ability Organizer Ryan who comes from Buffalo declaied the Ancient Order of Hibernians the largest Catholic organization in existence and In a brief way reviewed its work in this country during the last sixty seven years Two incidents that will forever stand forth prominently to the credit of the order was the quick response of the Hibetnians of New York City to the appeal of Archbishop Hughes for pro tection during the Knownothing days and later their work in Buffalo where they put twentysix of the twentyseven A P A councils out of business The speaker deplored the backwardness of some young IrishAmericans in proclaim ing their birth of Irish parentage but such he was glad to say were despised rather than respected by those whom they would foist themselves upon Fre quent applause was given his remarks and the impression made was altogether favorable Short talks were also made by Messrs Keenau Butler Sullivan Coleman Holley and others and it was decided to give Mr Ryan a public recep tion at Hibernian Hall on Sunday after noon at 2 oclock to which all friends of the order members and nonmembers are cordially invited Thursday morning Organizer Ryan visited the office of the Kentucky Irish American accompanied by State Treas urer George Butler After saying a few kind words for this journal which was looked for everywhere he had been he sadlhave been working in West Virginia Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky since the early part of January organizing new divisions and visiting others already in existence The order is in very good condition in most of the cities and towns which I have visited up to this time We have just organized two promising divisions in Kentucky one at Ashland and the other at Paris Since coming to the State I have also visited Cynthiana MaysVllIe Lexington Win chester and Frankfort and am in hopes that we will soon succeed in organizing divisions in at least two of the above named towns In relation to our work I will simply say that we are not looking for numbers alone The national organ ization expects that the right material be selected and the National President James Dolan tim instructed me person ally not to attempt to organize a division in any city or town simply to increase our membership Get good 1enn the order or dont organize the town at all Iii the way President Dolan expressed himself While I am not inclined to make predictions I feel safe in saying that the prospects for an increase in membership not only in Kentucky but throughout the country during the ensu ins year are excellent All we are called upon to do Is to explain the objects of our grand old order the advantages to be derived from membership etc and then we will have no trouble getting the right kind of mnto become members 1rtdalforlCYapwviI1ebutYtI u Monday after which he will spend some time In Indiana Hibernians may bring their friends to the reception Sunday afternoon ENCOURAGING

choral society which Mrs Cunningham has undertaken with such good will Of this number but two were young men Others doubtless will attend at the next rehearsal which will immediately follow the business session next Wednesday evening in Hibernian Hall The young ladies through the Kentucky Irish American extend a cordial invitation to the young men whether they are memo hers of the Hibernian society or not to conic and join this new chorus In con inicontemplationand a source of much enjoment to the young men Both of these societies will act in harmony and from their numbers many good singers and amateur actors may be selected to prepare for an im promptu musicale or entertainment at any time during the year The young folks were quite enthusiastic over the vocal exercises Monday night When they will have learned to sing the Irish ballads and melodies which are to be taught them then the proper forming of the chorus will begin The first work will consist in learning the melodies the proper placing of the different members will then follow It is a laborious undertak lug but if the young music loving Irish Americans of the city will take up the work in earnest Mrs Cunningham will do the rest PLEASANT OCCASION Was the Electrical Smoker Given Last Saturday Night James Clark Jr Co the well known manufacturers of motors anif dynamos and dealers in electrical sup

refreshments were served Each guest was presented with a handsome souvenir and taken altogether the occasion was a most enjoyable one During the evening several short talks were made some explaining the progress in electric invention and others auto gistic of the members of the enterprising company now one of the most important in the South One feature of the work shown that deserves mention was the idea of building motors into machine tools This has been carried to a high degree of perfection under the able super vision of Charles E Wllle A new radial drill with the motor built into it is also a marvel of mechanical skill dud ingenuity This firm now employs about a hundred workmen and is a valuable acquisition to the industries of Louis ville The generosity of the Messrs Clark is shown in the fact that every employe received a special invitation to share the pleasure of the evening with them FIVE ARE SICK Striking Instance of Advan tago of Belonging to r Hibernians Not for many months has there been so large a meeting of Division 3 as that of Monday night And the advantage of membership in the Ancient Order of Hibernians was made manifest when pro vision was made for the care of five sick members Tim McCarthy Peter Linskey Frank Kinney Thomas Jordan and Pat rick King who are all being looked after by the relief committee President Quinn and every officer was present and the propositionr of William Begley and Charles Miller were presented Eight candidates are now awaiting initiation and the division will endeavor to confer the degrees on March 21 as the meeting of April 4 has been called off on account of the MacCarthy musicale Thomas Howard was granted a transfer card and Patrick Horan was admitted by card from Ohio A new feature in the way of social ses sions was introduced by George Butler Chairman of the Literary Committee Joe Cooney sang a song the words and music by himself dedicated to Division 3 and another in Irish was rendered by Martin Sheehan

Bill Put to Sloop In time State Legislature Measure Can Not Pass Now Even if Reported Upon Favorably Its Defeat Duo to Watchful ness ofLocal Catholic Federation FIFTYTWO SOCIETIES FILE PROTEST The Kentucky Legislature will adjourn next week without passing the bill for an act compelling the taxpayers of Louis yule to furnish free text books to all the pupils In the public schools The bill Is dead thanks to time fair minded milan in the General Assembly and to the watch fulness of time leading members of the Catholic Federation and the light thrown on the matter in tie columns of the Ken tucky Irish American While the bill was unjust to all taxpayers it was particularly unfair to Cath paytaxesat the same time they support their own private parochial schools Tie bill was unfair to all private schools Catholic andno nonCatholic It is Dma lug that a member of the School Bdard would ever think of introducing a resolu tion to furnish free text books to the pupils in the face of the fact that where ever iit lies been tried it has been a source t of waste and scandal ft jo The City of Louisville levies A tax 01uationthesuppot of theJpubilc schools Tuft yields the enormous sum of nearly 400 000 To add to this burden by incurring a the levy for free text books would simply be an outrage Many peopls wonder what becomes of llthe igpaey which the School Board now draws from the

people are beginning to find that there is more graft in the School Boards of the country than almost anywhere else in the city governments Of course it is not to be inferred from this that the Louisville School Board is corrnpt It is to be hoped the free text book scheme is dead for all time to come There are so many expensive fads now in connection with the public school system in some of the cities that taxpayers are justly complaining If the pupils are furnished free text books the next thing will be to serve luncheon for them or possibly to supply them with clothing- As the Kentucky Irish American pointed out when the bill was first brought up the free text book idea has been a failure wherever it has been tried It would have been a failure in Louisville The intention of the author of the meas ure may have been good but the step was not a wise one It is well that the bill was put to sleep in the Legislature s Last Friday night the Catholic Federation met in regular monthly session at Hibernian Hall to hear reports from the committee that visited Frankfort and the societies that had Indorsed the protest against the bill President Kelly presided and the Secretary announced that fiftytwo organizations were with the Federation and approved the course or action recommended by that body The special committee that visited Frankfort stated that the gross injustice of the free text book proposition was so manifest to the members of the Legislature that it would not even be reported This much was intimated last week in these columns Several talks were made by prominent delegates and all expressed themselves satisfied with the vork per formed by the committee There was some talk about the coming State con vention but no definite action was taken President Kelly urges all delegates to be at the next meeting when the proposed change in the constitution will be voted oil- S 5 FATHER PAUL BETTER Every member of St Boniface congre gation aud Catholics

Over One Hundred Years Irishmen have Led in This State SOMETHING WE CAN BE PROUD OF St Patricks day Is a fitting time to call attention in this paper the only Irish American journal in Kentucky to the pioneers and builders of this grand old Commonwealththe explorers of its waters and its plains the men who established our independence the men and women who cleared the primeval forests extending the outposts of civilization from the Atlantic to the Pacific Withou school or church they established Chris tian homes and amid unequaled privation they opened up for the country the grea Middle West The pioneers of Kentucky were of Irish bit th or extraction to a large extent We need the example of the pioneer to recall to us the nobler view of life and to teach us the deeper lessons of right living We can in no way bette insure our future than by knowing and admiring the pioneers and in striving to excel them in the virtues which marl their lives It is in no spirit of boastfulness that the Kentucky Irish American fron time to tithe recalls the deeds of the early Irish in Kentucky but rather that the rising generation may know something accurate about the early history of the StateDr Hart and William Coomes were among the first Catholic settlers in Ken tucky locating in Harrodsburg in 1775 The doctor was the first medical practi tioner in the Commonwealth and Mrs Coomes was the first school teacher This credit is given them in Collins History of Kentucky The descendants of William Coomes still live here and one of them Martin F Coomes M D is a distinguished Louisville physician Among the fortified stations or forts built for protection against the Indians by the early settlers not a few bore names familiar to Irish ears denoting the pres ence of many of the Irish

Bivouac of the Dead cast in bronze and set up in appropriate places in the National cemeteries though he was a Confederate soldier the son of an Irish schoolmasterThe drums sad roll has beat The soldiers last tattoo No more in lifes parade shall meet That brave and fallen few On fames eternal camping ground Their silent tents are spread And glory guards with solemn round The bivouac of the dead On a previous occasion the Kentucky Irish American has called attention to the fact that of 100 men who marched From Louisville to Vincennes to reduce he British post at that point in 1798 nearly onehalf were of Irish birth or descent These soldiers acquired for the United States the great States of Indiana Illinois Michigan Wisconsin and part of Minnesota Many of the descendants jf these soldiers still live in Kentucky Irishmen can feel proud of the part their ancestors took in the early history aud settlement of the State It is well to think of these things on St Patricks lay and refer to them with pride and satisfaction KILKENNY THE MARBLE CITY Attention is called to the fact that here is at least a town in Ireland whose buildings and streets are mostly marble whose shops houses and churches are darned with it The town is Kilkenny which has gained the designation of the Marble City because so plentifully has the native black marble found in its vicinity been used for various purposes In the town that as a matter of fact the rery streets are paved with ItD1aclt narble is not the only kind found and cased however in the town There are some excellent examples of what Ireland can produce In marble to be seen in the Cathedral at Kilkenny Green specimens ire observed even finer than the black sues and the reredoa itself is an excellent nstance of what Ireland can show in his way The supports of the pulpit are solid pieces of this green marble which II found not about Kilkenny so much as- a the farther district of Connemara But it Is not the policy of England to help the Industries of Ireland She Pasta to MMfe alt Irelands commercial cogreM and how well she baa succeeded very out knows C1 2ttttpC FRANCE Has Honored Memory of Ire- lands 1 Patron Saint For i Centuries Flowering of the Blackthorn in Midwinter Near St MortinsI Phenomenon Which Scientists Have Been Unable toIpJolnI BEAUTIFUL LEGEND OF ST PATRICK Ireland is not the only country which has traditions about St Patrick France also bears a remarkable testimony to St Patrick in the mysterious Fleurs de St Patrice and the venerable Eglice de St Patrice situated in the diocese of Tours on the banks of the Loire a few leagues distant from the city of St Mar tin It is well known that St Patrick was a desciple of St Martin of Tours with whom he spent four years after his escape from Ireland and from whom he received the tonsure and was made a clericThe learned Jesuit S H Frisbie in a recent article entitled The Flowers of St Patrick writes entertainingly of the legends and monuments which are bound up with St Patrick in France The article of the learned Jesuit is too long for publication in the Kentucky Irish American and our readers will have to be content with extracts from the paper What are the flowers of St Patrick and their blossoming every year in mid winter for the past 1500 years The answers is given by the President of the Archaeological Society of Tours Mon signor Chevalller writing in 1850 He says i- On the banks of the Loire a few leagues from Tours a very remarkable phenomenon is repeated year by year and from time immemorial one con cerning which science as yet has given no satisfactory explanation This phe nomenon too little known consists in the blossoming in the midst of the rigors of winter of the black thorn commonly called the sloe Continuing he says that thousands during the month of De cember in each year are eyewitnesses to Its repetition and he himself gathers these extraordinary flowers The shrub is found on the slope of a hill at St Patrice The circulation of the sap which should be suspended in winter is plainly revealed by the moist state of the bark which easily separates from the wood which it covers The buds swell the flowers expand as in the month of April and cover the boughs with odorous and mowlike flowers The inhabitants of St Patrice record in ancient tradition which is full of Freshness and poetry St Patrick it is said being on the way from Ireland to loin St Martin in Gaulattracted by the fame of that saints sanctity aud miracles and having arrived at the banks of the Loire near the spot where the church sow bearing his name has been built rested under a shrub It was Christmastime when the cold was Intense In lonor of the saint the shrub expanded its branches and shaking off the snow which rested on them by an unheardof prodigy arrayed itself in flowers white as the snow itself St Patrick crossed the Loire on his cloak and on reaching the opposite bank another blackthorn under which he rested at once burst out into lowers Since that time says the chron cler the two shrubs have never ceased to blossom at Christmas in honor of St PatrickThis singular growth of flowers is almost uuknown although it has been repeated every year from time immemorial The oldest inhabitant of St Patrice has always seen It take place at a1 fixed period of the year no matter how severe the season may be and such has also been the ancient tradition of their orefathers However this phenomenon is limited to the locality aud to the shrub n question Cuttings transplanted else where have only blossomed in the spring and the hawthorns which grow amidst the aloes do not manifest any circulation of sap The village of St Patrice has about 700 inhabitants The whole neighborhood is redolent of St Patrick The railway station Iis call the Station of St- Parice the Commune Is also named after he saint while near the wonderful flowering blackthorn stands the ancient larish church dedicated to the apostle of Ireland Prom the style of architecture it1 ii clear that the church dates front the Bath or eleventh century and in fact the church U referred to in the annals of ue6a G FIRST PRIZE- ALL AGES WORLDS

Everywhere Throughout the World March 17 In Old Kentucky Anniversary Has Boon Observed For a Century Brief Historic Sketch of the Great Apostles Life- Work liST PATRICK WAS A GENTLEMAN I St Patricks day has been observed iin Old Kentucky for at least 100 years While the pioneers who came with Boone andshortly after him left no record of the observance of the Saints day it iis almost certain that they did not let it passI without some recognition We have records however that the day was ob served by Irishmen in one way or an other ever since the Commonwealth existedIrishmen in Louisville and throughout the State should be proud of the career of the Celt in Kentucky especially in its pioneer days It is fitting therefore that car recurring nnrvesaryT1leuay iis observed more generally than the previ ous one There is alwa s something Interesting about St Patricks anniversary Probably no other saint has been written about so much as Patrick the Apostle of somethingInteresting tucky Irish American considers that it is always appropriate to say something in the way of historic narrative on this occa sionSt Patrick was a gentleman This is not a bit of boastfulness but of historic truth Of all the national saints St Pat rick alone is the gentleman The others go about with swords and helmets andI breastplates and occasionally accom plishing something heroic but St Pat rick simply went about doing good welli deserving the cognomen of saint and equally worthy of the Irish comment he was a gentleman By the way no race on earth better understands a gentleman than the Irish The rudest clodhopper has never lost all the elements of instinctive politeness He pulls off his hat and addresses politely even though in your soul may not believe a word he says He knows a gentleman when he sees him No saint in the calendar so directly ap peals to the sympathies of all sorts of be lievers as does St Patrick His name is associatedwith poetry and romance but equally with benevolent associations and whatever is associated with social utility Ireland is unified about St Patrick Every nation has a saint We have IffersonTheD builders the better we are The Jews rally about Moses but none of these nation builders has proved so essential to national life as St Patrick St Patrick appeared in Ireland 400 years after Jesus and it was his lotto change the whole character of the Celtic people His real name was Pat ricius but his vernacular name was Succatb which means the brave one Patrick is short for Patricius which is Latin It is possible according to some traditions that he was born in Ireland at a place afterward called Kilpatrick which is not at all sanguinary but simply Kirk patrick or the Church of Patricius At the age of sixteen he was carried away by a roving band of marauders whoI came from the northern part of the island f for plunder His father was Calphornius according to the writings of the saint himself and he says he dwelt in the I village of Bonnaven but we are not sure where Bonnaven was Dumbarton Scot land claims to be the place of his birth andwriters differ on the subject The Very Rev M J Lavelle rector ofIf St Patricks Cathedral New York wrJtI ing of St Patrick and his birth place I saysSt Patrick even apart from his sancI tity and missionary zeal deserves to rank historybecause thatheJ J There have been various opinions as iJ to the exact place of his birth but that o i r II 1 f which is the most probable of them tis that be was born on the confines of Eng land and Scotland near Dumbarton on the English side 6f the line This is the opinion that is accepted by the Roya Irish Association- He spent twentyeight years in effect ing the conversion of Ireland During that time he traversed the whole island from the Giants Causeway to Old Kin dale and from the hills of Connemara to the Irish sea lHis tact is shown by the peacefulness- of Irelands conversion and the strong hold which the Catholic faith has always had upon the hearts of the people Ire land stands almost alone in this that iit was converted without the shedding of a single drop of martyrs blood This may have been owing much to the character of the people but at the same time it argues a remarkable spirit of peace gentleness wisdom and confi dence in the heart of the missionary No more complete conversion ever took place If it be true that suffering is a test of love we must put the love of the Irish people for Catholicity above that of every other nation This is not the time or place to recall the details of the penal days But any one who doubts this fact need only llook up the old statutes The tears will come unbidden to his eyes and he will understand the meaning of- LoveMoores beautiful ode The Irish to His Mistress St Patricks unselfishness is shown by the fact that he made himself all1 things to all men He became a teacher as well as an evangelizes of the people- S Instructing them in the arts and science- as well as in religion Pew men in any walk oi life have had greater success none have had more love or immortal fame The name of St Pat rick is as dear to the Irishmen of today as to him of 1400 years ago and thaIs t name is a miracle worker now as then the sense of being an incentive to love oE country and of God to higher aspirations and noble deeds The Rev David S Phelan editor of the Western Watchman writes of the saintSt Patrick is distinctively an Irish saint Wherever you find Irishmen in Ireland America Australia or New Zea landyou will find the celebration of St Patricks day of unusual prominence- In the church in general however the feast of St Patrick is only of second rank In some Catholic countries it iis not observed at all St Patrick is just as much a hero of Ireland as Brian Boru This is due to the fight of England against the Irish church and the establishment in Ireland of the Anglican church Irish Catholics rebelled against the action and ralliee around the standard of St tat rick as the typical Irish saint andi wherever you find Irishmen you will find St Patricks day especially observed The Irish American is particularly demonstrative in his celebration of the day and as the IrishAmerican is more American than Irish so now he is try lug to naturalize St Patrick and make 1him theAmeriean saint This accounts forf Ae great Interesttaken by all the American Catholic churches in the feast of St Patrick The celebration of St Patricks day in Louisville in recent years has been more appropriate than in early times It is mainly of a religious character Formerly there were processions and civic demon strations but these have fallen into dis use The observance of the day is gen eral among Irishmen of all shades of religious belief and many who are not Irish wear the shamrock to show their respect for the saint The Irish popula tion of Louisville is large and it is grow ing in influence It is fitting that all Irishmen and women should observe the day in some way and the various Irish societies will provide the occasion NELSON COUNTY I Loses Another of Its Oldest and Best Known Citizens JohnTalbotuwas born in Tipperary Ireland but because of the famine and hard times

buried in St Lou cemetery On March 1 of the present yes the number had reached the enormous total of 24894 making it one of the largest cities of the dead in Kentucky- St Louis cemetery was established iin 1867 by the Right Rev Bishop Spalding It was then away out in the woods hard to reach on account of poor roadsI The grounds were in very poor shape The first person buried in the cemetery was Antonia Calla the records showing that his interment took place April 14 18G7 The Right Rev William George Mc Closkey is the present President of the cemetery corporation Very Rev Jam P Cronin is the Secretary and Treasurer and George W Holland is the efficient Superintendent He has been connected with the corporation ever since childhood and takes great pride in keeping up the grounds He is certainly the right main u the right place The improvements made in the place during the past few years certainly reflect credit on him It should be the aim of all who have relatives l and friends in the cemetery to assist in keeping the place in good order The trees and shrubbery should be carefully looked after by the lot owners If thi is kept up St Louis cemetery will be one of the most beautiful in the whole cou n tryThere are many beautiful monuments some of them very costly and scarcely 8s month passes without adding new one Among the number may be mentioned the following

to say that the publication is on a sound foundation and is growing steadily in circulation and influence So many weekly papers of all kinds and Catholic papers especially have failed in Louisville during the past twentyfive years that it is with some degree of pride that we point to the successful career of this journal It is an uphill task to start a newspaper or rather it is a big un dertaking to keep it going after it iis started It requires untiring work almost day and night When the editor of the Kentucky Irish American undertook this work six years ago some predicted that it could not succeed but thanks to its patrons it has gone stes ily- aheadrlndevetyweeknddstoJts growing business in circulation and advertising patronage There is a field in Louisville and in Kentucky for a journal of this kind In making the paper go the editor has had his share of troubles He has received many rebuffs but the kindness and generosity which has been bestowed on him more than compensates for the rebuffs There are more than 50000 Irish Americans in Louisville and vicin ity and they are well able to support a paper Of course all these people do not read the Kentucky Irish American but from waat we can gain they are all friendly to it We appreciate all this very much and will try to continue to deserve the good opinion of our readers and friends We have striven to be fair to all men and will continue to act in that way We have received the indorse ment of the Catholic clergy and of the Hibernians Young Mens In stitutes Catholic Knights and other organizations in our humble efforts to give them a clean publication This is something to be proud of and we appreciate it In the future it will be our aim to make the paper better Our surplus earnings will be devoted to permanent improvements and each week we will try to make the paper more interesting It is particularly gratifying to us that all our sub scribers are pleased with the paper and renew their subscriptions promptly Our advertisers tell us that they get good returns for the money spent in our advertising columns We thank our readers for the generous support given us during the past five years and we hope that on next St Patricks day they will all be alive and enjoying every blessing IRISH CHORAL UNION In spite of the fact that many have thought it next to impossible to organize such a society as has been started during the pUt week itlolls taken shape and with a fervor that was a surprise to even its or n i ganizer This speaks well for the young ladies How about the young men They will be on hand we hope at the next meet ing of the Ladies Auxiliary Let each of them bring a new member to help increase the number of singers There are some excellent voices among our young Irish Americans and it should not require any cajoling to get them together With the lady who proposes to start this chorus we join in the query Why can not we have that which other cities have had for years Surely Irish talent is not scarce Neither is it so asleep that a nightmare can paralyze its energies Be up young people of both sexes and join in the glorious songs of your motherland1 Let the shades of Irelands immortal songmakers rejoice because the days are at hand when not mourning but gladness is awaking in the hearts of their childrens children It has remained for a woman the daughter of good and honored Irish people to come to the front and graciously offer her time and her talent at the disposal of all who are friendly to the cause Who will deny that all good things originate with women Yet this subject must not be left for them to carry through alone They ab solutely require our assistance Tenors and bassos are not found among female voicesa fortunate thing for were the opposite state of affairs true they would be for getting along without us altogether At the next meeting of the Ladies Auxiliary March 16 all young men who can sing or wish to learn are invited to come to Hibernian Hall and join in making a grand song feast one of which their friends will be justly proud If the Louisville battery officers are guilty of the loss of Govern ment

Dougherty and James E Roche had kindly accepted the invi tation of the Hibernians and would sing at the Maud MacCarthy concert at the Auditorium on Easter Monday night This will be welcome news to our local music lovers who are always eager to hear those great artists Louisvilles two leading pianists Miss Hattie Bishop and Miss Jodie McGill have been selected For accompanists the first named for Miss MacCarthy A programme of surpassing merit is is now assured and the young Irish queen af the violin will be greeted with as fine an audience as ever assembled in this city During the past few days many handsome half tone pictures of Miss Mac Cnrthy the work of Klauber and the Kentucky Irish American have been placed in show windows and are attracting much attention The Hibernians appreciate the assistance rendered them the clergy and are determined to realI- ze a handsome sum for the orphans Persons desiring tickts can procure them this office HINTS ON STYLE The checked silks are charming and greatly in demand for tailored and shirtwaist costumes In slight shades they used for dressier frocks but they are their best in the shirtwaist models From gingham to satin all the stuffs attractive and starting at the bottom ginghams are taking a new lease of life and the ginghams in small checks are being rapidly bought for use in shirtwaist suits There is also a peculiar shade ofvery bright brown bordering upon a burnt orange which in union with white makes most effective small check and in the hands of a clever dressmaker should be fashioned Into an unusual and delightful frock Mohairs come in all colors and sizes of checks and there are many checked wools in every light weight Brown and white combinations are much in evidence- in these checked modes and though green and blue combinations are old they are still popular Checked voiles in colors already men tioned in connection with the silks are extremely fashionable and made up on simple lines will constitute the most practical of summer frocks being cool and neat shaking off the dust easily and wearing even better than the taffeta The colorings particularly the soft middle tone blue and white are attractive the goods wear well and stand launder ing better than almost any other colored wash fablic and there isa clean cool freshness n out the terlal that is espe dally in keeping with IhTtubahirJwaist frock idea x Dress patterns of linen handsomely embroidered in the puncbedout broderic anfilalse are handsome and numerous and are perhaps the favorite choice for the white linen costume A heavy raised embroidery is also liked and there are patterns with elaborate drawnwork de signs in the linen The boat shape turban is even more popular than the tricorne and is the model most often chosen for the small flower hat It is adapted for the suit hat and among the chic models are many boat shaped turbans of a fine flexible straw with a crown of white and a deep closely rolled brim of dark color If one is to judge from the present showing in the moat exclusive millinery shops there is to be little radical change in hat shapes this spring The winter favorites bob up serenely in straw and tulle and flowers and where novelty does appear it comes in the guise of a modification of one of the accepted sbapes rather than in a definitely new shape Small checks in any and every material seem to be enjoying a pronounced vogue Not only in wash fablics but in woolens and silks the check rivals the all con quering dot in popularity but the scope of the check is more limited than that of the dot and there appears to be a feeling that the prim conventional check be longs chiefly to the realm of the simple and severe while the dot large small or middle sized may riot appropriately over any fabric from lawn to velvet and may adapt itself to the most gorgeous forms of making VERY BUSY Members of the two Syracuse councils of the Knights of Columbus are very busy

Situation Phil Hollenbach has issued the following circular to his patrons and the public which contains some interesting infor mationDear Sir Our friends end patrons will be pleased to learn we are still in the field Having enlarged our distillery and warehouse we are now prepared to meet the growing demand for our brand of whiskies such as Fortuna Glencoe Stonehill bourbons and Pride of the West ryes The goods are branded and sold for what they arethe finest cleanest and purest in Kentucky These popular brands are now used in many of the best hotels saloons clubs and families in preference to other well known brands The year of 1904 promises well for the Kentucky bourbon industry Crops that are sufficiently matured for consumption + are very short grain and barrels are high and the output during the present dis tilling season promised to be exceedingly limited These facts are calculated to advance prices We especially invite your inspection of our plant at Twenty sixth and Broadway formerly Stitzel Bros and you will do no injustice to your interest by consulting us before buying elsewhere Our bottled in bond whiskies have a wide spread reputation with connoisseurs who pronounce them superior to other products on account of their fine flavor clean taste and delicate boquetThere iitf food for reflection in the enormous increase in the amount of whiskies bottled in bond The 1903 record of 718000 gallons was a surprise to the trade being about three times as ranch as the previous year and a casual glance at the situation indicates that 1904 willshow two or three times as much as 1903probably a million and a half to two million with the little green stamp over the cork There is a strong recog nition of straight whiskies bottled at 100 proof under the direct supervision and Inspection of the Government which guarantees strength age and purity Fortuna is bottled in bond under the direct supervision of the United States Government and its purity fine flavor and uniform quality caused an increase over last year of more than 400 per cent Owing to the recent advance in the price of whisky bcttles cases etc we hereby beg to notify the trade that the price of Fortuna after April 1 1904 will be as follows Single case 9 five case lots 860 ten case lots 825j twenty five case lots 8- VALUABLE DISCOVERY The well known Holley boys William and Michael

Stirring Incidents in Cam paign That Was Snort Lived BUT FEW SURYIYORR NOW REMA1 The Fenian raid on Canada will alway be remembered by the people of Louisville of Irish descent because of the active participation of some of its leading rishAmerican citizens in that ill starre enterprise It was a daring movement and honorable in every way though iIt- was a failure but this failure was not on account of the lack of enthusiasm or valor on the part of the Fenians going frot LouisvilleThe war was just over when the enian movement to invade Canada was begun and brave men on both sides iIn the civil war volunteered to enter The Confederate in gray and the Yankee iIn blue were willing to stand side by side to bring about the independence of Ireland The movement was general throughout the country but on the borders of the Ohio it was rampant On Saturday night May 24 1866 the Louisville Fenians left this city crossing the Ohio river via the ferry there being 10 bridges at that time They went to ndianapolis where they expected that 1000 men would join them but Instead here were only about fifty In this memorable campaign the officers froti Louisville were Michael Boland Captain John Kelly First Lieutenant Thos Shelley Second Lieutenant and Jame Hyland First Sergeant The latter was a Confederate soldier John Spalding who served in the Union army throughout the war was made Colon l and led his men in the one fray Nothing daunted by the failure to secure more men the Louisville contingent noved on to Cleveland It was expected that more recruits would be received here but this was also a disappointment and the command moved on to Buffalo plyabout 500 men were at Buffalo eady to invade Canada on June 1 60 when the Fenians crossed over on Cans Han soil and landed at Fort Erie on June 2 Here the Fenians engaged at once with the Queens Own the Lot Ion Rifles and the Weldon canal battery numbering about 1800 Canadiai oldiers The small army of Fenian routed the BrTtlsfi fiTfiienrrst engagi nent and would have proceeded further through Canada bad not the Unite States Government intervened About 38000 men were ready to crossover from Buffalo to Canada to join the expedition when Grover Cleveland then Sheriff of Erie county notified Get Meade the commanding Federal General In the lake region at that time of the extent of the hostilities and no more troops were allowed to cross from Buffal to Canada The Fenian movement from that time collapsed The Louisville cot tingent returned home having been gone three weeks Great interest was taken in the move meat here and means were forthcoming for the relief of the men who were in tbe expedition Dennis Lincoln then 8 leading citizen of Louisville father t01 Walter P Lincoln the attorney was sent to Buffalo to bring the men back and pay all their expenses Pat Bannot of Louisville was also prominent in the relief movement and secured the boat on which the men returned from Canadi giving his personal security for the same On their return to Louisville the Fez lane were given an ovation There wasI a big reception at the Hanover Gardet on Preston street There was a sham battle and 0000 realized The shat battle depicted the Canadian raid in a miniature way Of the soldiers who participated in tbe Canadian raid of 66 only a few survive Mike Boland was afterward Prosecutin Attorney of the Police Court Afterwar be moved to Kansas City where he died John Kelly became a First Lieutenant on the local police force He is now an inspector of street work under the Board of Works James Hyland who died abou two years ago was in the police department for years and was a fine officer Ofr he survivors there are now Michael Fin egan James McGuire Dennis McCarthy Thomas Shelley Thomas Walsh i ohn Burke

Michael Hylaud Thomas McNamara am William Collins The flag they carries Is still preserved having been retained bj Thomas Shelley No more daring expedition was ever indertaken than the Fenian movement on Canada At first the United States government winked at it Secretary ieward being anxious to secure concessions from Great Britain lead the fenians in all parts of the country acted as promptly as the Louisville contingent anada would now be a part of the United States The Kentucky Irish American recalls these events to remand the growing generation of the patriotism of their ancestors For it must be conceded that the Irish bad a grievance against the British in 1866 and were justified in this raid The United States also had a grievance because the English Govern ieat did everything to promote discord bettureen the Stateq during the rebellion r ++HH AA A 4++ J oHHHARDY DEALER IN Fancy and Staple Groceries Canned Goods Fruits Vegetables Teas Coffees and Spices BOTH PHONES 2001 BANK

for Thirty Eight Years in Course of Erection Any Church in Louisville Couldt Bo Placed Inside Stooplo and AH lOST INTERESTING DBSORIPTIOH Indiana Catholics are progressive They have more churches than Kentucky andI a larger population than the two dioceses in this State though the diocese of LouisI ville is much older The Bishop of Indianapolis is getting ready to build a fine Cathedral iu the capital of the State and new churches are going up at many places These things are referred to by the Kentucky Irish American in no spirit criticism of Kentucky Catholics but few of our people have any idea of the growth of Catholicity even In Southern Indiana which is our close neighbor 1 For instance one would hardly believe there is a church in the little city of Jasper in Dubois county Indabout fifty miles from Louisville which is no large that almost any of the churches in Louisville steeple audall could be placed inside of it A Louisville con tractor Mr Joseph Sibler has been doing some work on this churchs steeple during the past few months and he gives an interesting description of it which will no doubt be of interest to our readers- as in all probability they never heard of the church before or how it came to be built This immense structure dedicated as St Josephs has enough stone in its struuture to build around a city of 15000 or 20000 inhabitants a wall four feet high and two feet thick and the amount of lumber used in the roof alone would be sufficient to build many homes Though this great edifice cost one tenth as much as the State House it was built by the Catholics of one of the smallest counties of the State of Indiana and today it stands without a single cent of indebted ness against it Three years after the civil war closed Father Fidelia Maute began the erection of St Josephs On September 14 1868 Bishop Si Palais laid the cornerstone After the death of Father Maute the work was taken up by Father Basil Heusler who expects to complete the structure in 1905 when thirtyseven years occupiedinitserection tion the materials used in the construe lion of St Josephs were prepared and put in place by members of the congrega tion who for three decades have been making sacrifices of all kinds to realize the ambition of their lives Beside the vast amount of labor contributed 80000 in cash has been raised Between 25 000 and 50000 more will be necessary to complete the work When Father Maute conceived the idea of the great structure he was anxious that fit be built in a most substantial manner and certainly his wishes have been followed The roof is supported by huge trees the largest in Southern Indiana that serve as imposing ninetyfoot columns The roof structure is composed SBetweenthere Is over 1000000 feet of the finest hard wood in the State There is beside an immense amount of stone in the structure The story is that after the farmers had hauled stone for mouths and had all the surrounding fields covered they thought there was enough for the onlyhalfThe foundation and walls of the church went up under the direction of Father Maute who after preaching the sermon Sunday morning announced who Had been selected to work during the coming week By this means about oneseventh of the entire congregation labored each week Father Maute not only assigned the men to work but he the busiest directedall Year after year this con linued until gradually the structure took shape The dimensions Ybythe eaves it is sixtyseven and from the floor on the interior to the ceiling it is ninety feet The walls are four and six feet thick

electricityThe of St Josephs includes about 330 families or about 3000t communicants In the city of Jasper 90 per cent of the inhabitants are Catholics and DuBois county is the strongest Cath olic

of the Loved Badge of Ireland CONCERNING TIE TRINITY LEGEND Theres a dear little plant that grows iin our isle Twas Saint Patrick himself sure who set it And the sun on his labor with pleasure did smile And the tear from his eye ofttimes wet it It grows through the bog through the brake through the mireland And they call it the dear little sham rock of Ireland Old song A writer in the New York Sun asks the question What is the true shamrock Had the writer of the Irish ditty of which the above stanza is a part been positive as to the identity of the plant he would have set the minds of men at rest on a subject which still remains an open one Eminent authorities still differ as to what the true shamrock is and there is no ground for the belief that it was introduced into Ireland by St Patrick In the limited space of the Kentucky Irish American for this number itt will be possible to give only a few brief quotations from the ancient literature of Erin as to what the word means The word shamrock according to the best author ties is erse being derived from seamrog compound of scamor meaning trefoil and og little little clover Seamar is supposed to be the same as sumar the Celtic name for clovervisumarus- The earliest reference to the shamrock in Irish literature deals with it asa food plant Campion in his history of Ireland 1571 says in speaking of the food of the common people Shamrotes water cresses and other herbes they feede upon oatmele and butter they cram together The word occurs in Irish literature variously as seatnsog seamrog reamroge sbamrotc shamrocks or shamroote Matthias Lobet the Flemish botanist who published a work in 1570 appears to be the first botanical writer to mention the plant He enumerates the purple the white trefoil and says of the latter It is said to be good for fatten ing cattle adding that the Irish grind the flowers and the leaves into a meal which they knead with butter and thrust into their groaning bellies when it some times happens that they are vexed and maddened by a threedays hunger Edmund Spencer in 1595 also tells of the Irish people feeding on shamrokes or watercresses when reduced to starvation during the Munster wars In the work of Faynes Morgson written in 1599 this passage occurs They willingly eat the herbe schamrock being sharp taste which as they run and are chased to and fro they snatch like beasts out of the ditches This statement has given rise to the belief that the watercress was the shamrock but by others was considered to mean the wood sorrel trifoliate plant with acid juice which grows abundantly in Irish woodlands The shamrock food of the Irish was supposed to make them strong and fleet of foot T Mundy refers to this in a work written by him in 1860 The nourishing qualities of the food are also gleaned from the statement of the Earl of Antrim during the Beige of Munster to the effect that as long as shamrocks were plentiful no apprehension need exist regarding the food anAbout 1772 the shamrock as an artlu of food in Ireland was supplanted by the potato St Patrick is believed to have lived about the year 377 A D yet the legend connecting his name with the national badge of Ireland does not make its ap pearance in the literature of the country until 1881 An English teacher Thomas Dlniely wrote during the reign of Charles II The 17th of March yearly is St Patricks day an unmovable feast when ye Irish of all stations and conditions wear crosses on their hats some of pins some of green ribbons and the vulgar superstitiously wear shamrogues three leaved grass which they likewise eat they say to cause a sweet breath The trinity legend of the shamrock appears first in the literature of 1727 and Caleb Tbrekeld writes of the shamrock This plant is worn by the people in their hats on St Patricks day it being a current tradition that by this threeleaved grass he emblematically forth to them the mystery of the Holy Trinity The shamrock is now permitted to be worn as an emblem on St Patricks day by the British War Office by the members Irish regiments It is worn wherever restingIplace as badge the country of his birth Large quantities of shamrocks are imported from Ireland to the United States every St Patricks day Some of these called the true shamrock come from the grave of Irelands patron saint Downpatrick Louisville Irishmen now get

Archdeacon of the diocese and the other parish priest of Donoughmore at the time of his death some few years ago Father Jeremiah Halpin was curate in several parishes of the diocese and he was parish priest of Banogue for a long period until he had to resign pastoral charge of the district some time back owing to physical infirmity He had been ill for the past few months and passed away peacefully at St Johns Hospitalwhere be was under treatment An accident of a rather sad character occurred at a place called Ballineatig on the Dingle railway line A man named John Baker who belongs to the town was driving in the direction of Dingle with his horse and side car and met the train from Tralee where it runs along the road at the place mentioned It appears that the horse shied and in its endeavors to get loose came in contact with the wagons of the train A second person who was an occupant of the car managed to have got clear before col lision which left the driver horse and car in a mass on the road The horses back was broken the car all but demol ished and poor Baker himself suffered such injuries as to make his recovery a matter of uncertainty Happily Canon Leary happened to be
