AMERICAN i VOLUME XILNO 15 LOUISVILLE SATURDAY APRIL 9 1904 PRICE FIVE CENTS IRISH MUSIC Entrances Immenso Audiouco I at Auditorium Monday Night Miss Maud MacCartby Receives OldFashioned Kentucky x Welcome Mrs Daniel Doherty and Mr James Roche Captivate Hearers b HIBERNIANS WIN HIGH PRAISE The IrishAmerican people of Louis vllle responded promptly and liberally to the appeal of the Ancient Order of Hibernians on Monday night in the cause of charity The occasion was the appearance of Miss Maud MacCarthy the talented Irish violinist for the benefit of the orphans If the A O H should again desire to repeat the performance as early as May 1 with the same performers and ask their friends to attend the Auditorium would be packed This iis the consensus of opinion of all who at tended the recital on Monday night It was a superb performance in every way The audience to hear Miss MacCartby assisted by Mrs Daniel A Doherty James P Roche Miss Ilattie Bishop and Miss Jodie McGill was one of the largest ever assembled in the Auditorium on a similar occasion Mrs Doherty Mr Roche Miss Bishop and Miss McGill gave their services free and deserve A thanks therefor c From an artistic point the violin recital was all that could be asked and the critical audience apr lauded generously Miss MacCarthy gave nothing but classic renditions A large part of the audience it is true would have preferred some familiar old Irish tunes during the en cores but they all went away pleased though they did not hear their old airs Should Miss MacCarthy appear again in Louisville she would have all the crowd that heard her on Monday night and many more besides Mrs Doherty who is always ready to assist in the cause of charity rendered some beautiful ballads and was also gen erouslyapplauded Mrs Dohert Is Itmember of tile Dom n can pa s when she finds time is always willing to do her part in the cause of charity The others who assisted are also deserving of thanksThe boxes were all occupied only a few of our local clergymen being missing Prominent in the boxes also were Judge Matt oDoherty Thomas D Claire and Thomas Walsh who was the presiding officer at the preliminary meetings held in Hibernian Hall All manifested the greatest enthusiasm and were most gen erous in their applause A pleasing feature of the evening was the cordial reception given the members of the Ladies Auxiliary by the fair vio linist The ladies had arranged to meet Miss MacCarthy at the Auditorium and it was some time alter the concert before she allowed them to depart Ever since the performance the mem bers of the Hibernians who took a leading pact in making the entertainment ai success have been complimented It maybe said that those who took a leading part were closely followed by the rank and file and every member of the order took an interest in the success of the entertainmentThe highly satisfactory to the clergy and to the Right Rev Bishop Me Cloakey The orphans will realize a handsome sum In a short talk with Miss Maud Mac Carthy on one of her favorite topics Irish music our representative gathered some opinions which coming from a artist of worldwide reputation in the more generally known German and French compositions will add fresh im petus to our efforts to put Celtic art upon its proper footing before the world Miss A MacCarthy declared with enthusias- that the ancient Irish melodies are not alone of national but of the deepest mu sical interest and worldwide importance But she wished to lay great stress upon the word ancient for while there might be many enjoyable things in oa modern music it is to the pure and noble streams of melody flowing from the in most heart of our country that we look to uphold our musical standard and to evoke from Irishmen scattered over the globe those grandest sentiments of patriotism and love of the beautiful which inspired in our forefathers those melodies that remain unexcelled Sh chatted of her many plans to bring Irish music before European and American audiences end it is a noteworthy fact that Maud MacCarthy is the first greati violinist to make a stand for the produc tion of Celtic compositions within strictly musical circles but so sure is she off their iMtristic value and appealing qualitiesI that her fearless innovation has met with nothing but appreciation from the mostt exacting musical people everywhere There is one great and well nigb insur mountable difficulty for which she says we ourselves are largely to blame andt until this is removed Miss MacCarthy feels that our lovely melodies will remainI the treasures of a few instead of the com complainedmonproperfyoEah1t the young artistwhy do people slwayaI 1 connect the idea of an Irish concert with the semi comic tunes of an inferior order and a public dead to the appeal of their own mighty music There is but one reply Irish art has been somehow degraded and underrated It must be raised again and we must reject as posi tively injurious to the national spirit and what are we to do without that everything which causes a shadow to rest upon Irelands noblest classics Miss MacCarthy left for the East last Weuuesday intending to sail for her home in England within a few days Before her departure from the city she called upon Bishop McCloskey Vicar General Cronin Father Walsh and sev eral ladies and gentlemen who had be come interested in her and to all she expressed herself as delighted with he- proposals r visit to Kentucky Flattering were received by Miss McCarthy for concert in all parts of the country in all1 fiftyeight which she was

the Contestants For Our Worlds Fair4 Trip Gains Made All Along the Lino and Many Votes Are Cast Surprising Interest Is Manifest i Among Friends of Single Ladies NOT MUCH TIME FOR WORK Only a short time now remains for readers of the Kentucky Irish American to take advantage of the liberal offer made by this paper for a visit to the great Louisiana Purchase Exposition at St Louis The Fair will open in a short time and the interest in it is daily in creasing in every part of the country It is true that eachweek our readers are showing more interest and the voting is becoming more general but the vote should be much larger than it is The terms are so liberal that almost anyone can take a chance As stated in these columns on several former occasions the Fair will be the greatest event of the kind in the history of the world and there will probably never be another show like this oneThe Kentucky Irish American has ar ranged to send any of its readers who care to go to the Fair from Louisville or vicinity take care of them while they are in SL Louis and bring them home after they have attended the great show No paper in Kentucky has made a more liberal offer Read the terms andenter the contest without further delay When a little seas than three weeks hence the Worlds Fair gates swing open practically all of the constructive work will have been accomplished and vir tually all of the exhibits will be in their places Every one of the great exhibi tion palaces is completed except in the matter of painting and this will be finished long before April 30 Mauy of the Statebuildings and some of those of the foreign Governments have had the finishing touches put upon them and are ready for the opening Nearly all of the nexttor The concessions buildings are all far advanced and some of them are already finished There was some fear at one time that the exhibits would be delayed beyond the time at which they could be put in place by the opening day Necessarily the exhibitors could not be reached quite as Fatr4das thecontractors for the buildings and the ground transformation havefneedless- A herculean task has confronted the Fair officers but they have met It with energy and iintelligence Its visitors on April 30 will discover that the Exposi tion is far nearer to absolute completion than was any of its predecessors not excluding that in Parts in 1900 A record has been made in connection with this enterprise which is not likely to be beaten in the future Not only will the Louisiana Purchase Exposition be larger in area and in range of general attractiveness than any which this generation of the theYcondition of readiness at the opening day stands a chance not to be exceeded in any of the fairs which will come after it This probably will mark the climax in the evolution T f the great international expositions for halfa century or more NO other events of this magnitude in the United States at least will be left to com memorate until the recurrence of the independence anniversary of 1076 Few among the millions who will see the St Louis Worlds Fair will live to witness its equal in the coming time During the past two weeks a large

WHISKYDRINKERSBecoming Some Heretofore Unknown Methods Big Fight Being Made to De feat Legislation in v Congress Arguments Presented Leave One in Greater Doubt Than Before STRAIGHT VERSUS BLENDED GOODS There isa fight going on in Congress as well as in Kentucky as to whether blended whisky or straight whisky is the best The Legislature of Kentucky re cently passed an act imposing a special tax of fifty cents a barrel on blended or rectified whisky and some distillers or rectifiers of this kiadgoods have thremtMcd toleavrtke State ou account oTtEstax7Jltw noVHIiely hhowever that any of them will leave The fight in Congress is over the pas sage of the HepburnDolliver pure food billThe average man of voting age in this country and there are mote than 21000 000 of him consumes some five gallons of distilled spirits annually to say nothing of wines beers etc The desire is to protect this average man to legislate him into the straight and narrow path which leads to alcoholic purity Hence the struggle between the actual distiller and the man who rectifies blends or corn poundsThe straightgoods whisky men con tend that their bottledinbond bourbon or rye is the only genuine article and the one brand of goods that the drinker can quaff with impunity The blenders in sist that the only road to absolute im munity from all the ills of dissipation is through the use ofa properly compounded bottle of all that is virtuous in whiskydomIn meantime the unenlightened average man who knows nothing about the merits of the dispute who meekly deposits the price and takes what the barkeep hands out stands in bewilder ment for by the drinking of it he knows not the difference between rye and bourbon straight and rectified He can now take the facts as developed in the hearing before the committee in charge of the HepburnDoll vcr bill or as set forth on the side by experts from both camps pay his money and take his choice Of course there are outlawed straight whisky and upright blends good and wholesome rye and bourbon and dis honest compounds For example bour bon whisk direct from the still is with out color and impregnated with poison ous oils and essences The familia- golden hue comes from the charred inside of the oaken barrel in which the whisky is aged and purified Dishonest men have been known to take the rank new whisky when only a few months old reduce its fire by the addition of water bring up its color by the admixture of drugs and put it on the market asold liquor Then indeed is it vile Straight whisky is known as either rye or bourbon Bourbon whisky got its name originally from the county of that name in Kentucky where a great deal of whisky wan made in pioneer days butt e term is now applied generally to all Kentucky or corn whisky most of the ryes coming from Maryland and Pennsyl vania Pure bourbon whisky should contain 60 per cent of corn 30 per cent of rye and 10 per cent of barley Rye whisky is made of rye and barleymalt A bushel of corn will make about four and a half gallons of whisky Without the Government tax new whisky could be sold at a profit for fifteen cents a gallon but t Government adds 110 a gallon to start off with This with the cost of storing the liquor unto it ia slxor eight years oklthe low by evaporation alI- t eke fcrinfe Ike selHHffprfe ol ti- tl rr matured spirits to from f2 to 4 a gallon Many devices and processes for aging whisky and hastening oxidization or the removal of fusel oil and other poisons by Evaporation have been tested but no substitute has been found for the original method of putting new whisky in bar rels charred Inside and keeping the bar rels under favorable conditions for six eight or ten years when the whisky at tains the purity bouquet and flavor peculiar to the different brands and so strikingly peculiar that old distillers can take samples of whiskies from various localities and tell from which County generally from which particular distill ery each Individual sample comes Whether this is due to the water tire grain or the proportions of the ingredients employed by the different houses has never been satisfactorily explained but that it can be done is absolutely true The war that has been waged between the straight goods men and the blenders in connection with the pure food bill is due to the efforts of the distillers to have a ban placed upon all whiskies not bottled in bond in effect to declare all other productions impure The bottledinbond process is not widely understood andso far as the average man who calls for his drink over a bar is concerned cuts no great figure Whiskybottled in bond is bottled at the distillery warehouse in the presence of an internal revenue officer who pastes over the cork and neck of each bottle a Government stamp which guarantees the age of the whisky and certifies that it was not manipulated in its journey from the barrel to the bottle Under the law whisky less than four years old

with feelings of appreciation but on account of the late ness of the hour the report of the Grand Secretary was laid over till the next meetingClarence Zook Chairman of the Lec ture Committee in a witty little speech introduced Councilman Augustus J Bizot who delivered ask instructive and interesting an address as has yet been heard by Mackin Council members He took for his theme the young man dwelling upon him from boyhood to the grave His suggestions were many and timely and left their impression The Councilman was at his best and at the conclusion he was warmly congratulated upon his eloquent and masterly effort Clarence Zooks peculiar proposition submitted at the previous meeting was largely responsible for the large attend ance which was a result the Lecture Committee had been working for When the gentleman explained the matter the joke was indorsed as a good thing and put the council in good trim for all that followed a CATHOLIC MEETINGS A Missionary Conference at

VERY CREDITABLE ONE No Catholic organization in Kentucky or elsewhere takes higher rank than Trinity Council Young Mens Institute in all that goes to make up an ideal Christian organization Its membership is made up of model men always ready to do their part in the cause of religion and charity Quite a number of the members are prominent in the business and professional life of the city It was fitting therefore that the sixth anniversary of the organization should be celebrated with some pomp and cere mony On Thursday night at the Wilfard Hotel the members of the council and their lady friends sat down to an elabo rate banquet and the menu and speeches will be remembered for a long time It has been customary to hold the annual banquet on Easter Monday but in deference to the wishes of the Hibernians who had Miss Maud MacCarthy at the Audi torium on that evening the banquet was postponed until Thursday evening Representative Catholic young men were in attendance in large numbers Trinity Council numbers nearly 300 members and the yearly banquet is looked to with considerable interest There have been six Presidents of the council and all were present Eugene Cooney the present capable presiding officer was the recip ient of many congratulations on the 6 growth of the council during the past year Father OGrady delivered the invocation and President Cooney toldwhy they were there He made some very sen sible observations as he always does and spoke for a larger development of the order His speech was well received EmmetSJatterypresIdedaatoastmas ter and his selection for this duty was a wise one He introduced the various speakers with appropriate and fitting observations Mr Slattery is one of the most active members of the order and knows nearly every member in the city He acquitted himself with credit on this occasion and kept the banqueters in good humor during the speech making by his happy introductions Frank A Lenz the attorney who is a witty German had for his theme I Promise Never to Divulge Starting put with the proposition that it was hard to pay a debt of 10 with 5 cash and still earn the deep and heartfelt gratitude of the payee Mr Lenz went on in a humorous way to say that he knew a person who had accomplished this feat but could not divulge how it might be done as there were too many of his fellowlawyers present who might want to get onto the scheme Mr Lenz spoke of the records in the council and in politics of Joe E Conkling James B Kelly T J Garvey Ed Bosler John F Sullivan Emmett Slattery and others and made a decided hit He was liberally applauded as at the conclusion of each sketch he would remark I promise never to divulge One of the most interesting addresses of the evening was prepared by Edward J Bosler who had for his toast Whats the Use Owing to the illness of his wife Mr Bosler was unable to be present and his paper was read by Tom Garvey from which we extract the following Mr Toastmaster ladies and gentle men Whats the useof me trying to toast you when all the members of Trin ity Council know I am one of the roasters and not a toaster However the two words sounding alike whats the use of not trying to toast when I have a fair chance Many times during our council meetings I feel like suggesting some measure which I think would be beneficial to the council and its members but when I see Dr Clark in the hall I think whats the use as he is always there with his ever ready hatchet to split hairs on any point but I occasionally muster up enough courage and suggest my hobby for whats the use of Bitting there like a bump on a log Like most young boys when I was in my early teens I had an ambition Mine was to be Mayor of our great city like our own Charley Grainger but asI grew older and after consulting with myself I came to the conclusion whats the use1 One politician in the family is enough Mr Garvey read on in this strain for some time making severall happy hits which were generously applauded- Dr Phil Beutel Jr was very happy in responding to tLetoaatOur Ladies Dr Beutel is a rising young physician who takes deep interest lit the order The celebration was altogether credit able to Trinity Council and its members and every guest went away from the ban quet hall feeling that it WM goodte be there The result of the celebration will no doubt be that the council will have mossy

LABEL COUNCIL LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY APRIL 9 1904 HIBERNIANS TAKE THE LEADIL The members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in Louisville have every reason to feel proud of the success of every undertaking they have recently engaged iIn The members of the order are as a rule modest men who do not claim leadership in society but each auc I every Hibernian when called uponi will be found to be true to mother country to the church and to his family The members of the order are taking the lead in Louisville iini every movement for the bettermentt of their race It is well for the A O H to take the lead For years they were misunderstood and oftentimes I persecuted but this day iis passed and the clergy everywhere now commend the order and its good work These preliminary remarks are brought to mind by the successful1 carrying out of the entertainment In which Miss Maud MacCarthy was the central figure at the Audi torium on Monday night last The Hibernians secured the services off this talented young woman only after great labor and expense They were rewarded for their pains t a great audience The best people in Louisville attended the recitalI and all went sway pleased Mrs Daniel A Doherty and James P Roche deserve credit for the part they took It is to be hoped this will not b the llast of the entertainments given by the Ancient Order The gen eral public waswell pleased and the clergy gratified over the handsome sum realized for the orphans LABOR TROUBLES This is the time of the year when the mechanic seeks employment and better wages if possible This has been a long hard winter and has been the cause of hardship to many thentrades unions in Louisville are con servative men There are fewer strikes in Louisville every spring than in any other large city in the country There would be no strikes at all if the employer and employe would get together and agree to do justice to each other The golden rule ought to settle labor disputes There are some employers who are disposed to treat their men fairly and as a conse qtience they never have any trouble but on the other hand there is the employer who is always seeking to keepjdown wages and to grind theI life out of his employes There are unreasonable men in the unions too- During the past week there has been a few strikes in Louisville but they have been greatly over estimated in importance by the daily press This year the employ ers have an association to look after their interests and have walking delegates like the labor organiza tions This is something new for t Louisville So far the Employers l Association does not seem to have accomplished much good toward settling disputes but rather its pol nicyseems to have had the reverse effect However no serious strikes may be looked for in Louisville as the mechanics are only asking for Wages which are paid to the trades In other cities of this size MISSIONARIES FOR KENTUCKY I Bishop Maes of Covington at the JinWashingtonJ a statement of fact of wide interest a which was reported by the Asso elated Press on Thursday and printed iin all the daily papers Tbe IXabpps 9ttteneat was tfaaV a n a r there were many places in KenI tucks and particularly in his diocese which includes the o calle mountain counties of the CommonI wealth where the inhabitants ha never heard of the Catholic church or in fact any church They were in dense ignorance of the truths of the Christian religion in any ford The Bishop of Covington urged the importance of missionary work among these people and said the few priests who have gone among them have accomplished wonders and many converts have been made The early settlers of the mount ain counties of Kentucky were mostly of Irish birth or descent Without the influence of the Chris tian religion these people have de generated They are a hospitable people but feuds are common among them and human life is taken withI impunity It is the mission of the Catholic church to spread the true religion among all nations and pea rpIes As charity begins at home the appeal of the Bishop of Coving ton for more missionaries in the mountain counties is timely The people in that region are willing to prehproper way Catholics of ample means in Ken tucky could do no more charitable act than to contribute to the fundl for missionaries in the mountain t counties UNIONSeIt seems to be the set policy of the Employers Association iin Louisville to try to enforce tile Parry system in this citythat is to have open shops and to brea up the union labor organizations This pnlicy seems to be an unwise i one and may result in great harm to proprietors as well as working men Should the open shop scheme win this year which iis jimprobable the fight would not be ended and the proprietors would jhave to make the same fight next year Until the Employers As j sociation was organized the work jingmen in Louisville got along very well with their employers though the men worked for smaller wages than were paid elsewhere There were no strikes in April 1903 but this year the Employers Associa tion seems to have brought about several that were unnecessary The pending troubles could have jbeen settled by arbitration were it tnot for the open shop dictum of the Employers Association The proprietors of the various establish ments siding with the Employers Association may find that is not such an easy thing to break up theI unionsI in Louisville AUNT IS DEAD The sad news reached here this week of the death of Mrs Anna Grathy the venerable aunt of Phil McGovern the well known letter carrier at her

the yellow browns are undeniably far from being suggestive of coolness Among the three piece costumes the bolero reigns despite the fact Paquin has grown cold toward it There are long coats short basque or fitted coats but the bolero is repeated over and over and the variations upon it are legion Flat rosettes called maccarons or co cardes are having much vogue this spring They are made of velvet silk or satin doubled and quilted flatly in smell shejl fashion around a large button center cov ered with the material or made of tiny soutasche braid Mescaline a new silk is meeting with

Catholic Church WHIT THE FUTURE HOLDS OUT James B Kelly Grand President of the Young Mens Institute gave utter ance to some significant words at the Y MI banquet Thursday night He was speaking on the past present and future of that organization and said When Themistocles the Athenian was requested at a feast to touch a lute he replied that he could not fiddle but that he could make of a small town a large city While this may seem an arrogant and haughty response it ex presses a truth in that our gifts and talents lIeth in different directions for while many may be found to fiddle cun ningly they are far from being able of making a small State great I do not know whether the men who founded the Young Mens Institute could fiddle or not but time has demonstrated they knew full well how to erect a fraternal structure embodying Catholic and patri otic principles and whose architectural beauty is typical of the truth of our holy mother the Catholic church The king dom of heaven is compared not to any great kernel or nut but to a grain of mustard seed which is one of the least grains but bath in it a property and spirit to hastily get up and spread So the Y M I small and unpretentious in its Inception has spread its beneficent influence to the Atlantic ocean on the East and like wireless telegraphy the current of protection and fraternity has established councils in Manila and the Hawaiian Islands How shall true greatness of a society be measured Surely not by the grandeur and magnifi cence of its habilaments and paraphernalia nor by the ancient and high sounding titles of its officers And while a large membership and many branches indicate success Scripture emphatically says by their fruits you shall know them I can mention some organizations that are aptly described by the fly in one of Aesops fables The fly sat on the axletree of the chariot wheel and as the chariot whirled over the road it said My what a dust I do raise Those Catholic gentlemen wHo banded together twenty years ago aimed firstly and chiefly at the constant maintenance of a Christian life and observed with fidelity and zeal the divine law and the precepts of the church The Young Mens Instttute strong and confident in its untried powers and youth was not left to seek an ideal on the basis of novelty Its beginnings were marked by prudence It grasped what ever was new in the development and fruit of experience but in its main line ofaction it has kept to the well trodden ways that time has proven safe While our order does not discourage the man of mature years from joining our ranks we especially solicit and invite the young man to affiliate with us because our organization is wisely adapted for his advancement and the employment of his talents The Y M I has promoted the use of club rooms with its libraries etc as the best means of furthering intel lectual improvement and social enjoy ment besides creating a moral atmos phere that is a tonic to whole communi ties Time will not permit me to enume rate the names of those men who have contributed to our growth and prosperity but each individual member is entitled to some praise for the eminent success that the Y M I has achieved We must not forget that it is the eye that makes the horizon and the rounding minds eye that form our opinions But the banquet tonight in celebration of Trinitys anni versary is an unmistakable sign of the greatness of our order and of our present prominent position in the fraternal world However we have not arrived at a wall but at an Interminable ocean for if we cease to grow we begin to die No society can attempt to follow out a line of its own seek in itself a clew to every prob lem scorn precedent and history and succeed What the Y M I has in abounding measure is confidence and energy What it most lacks is the wis dom and experience that comes with age Confiding in the sterling good sense the memIbersthat augurs well for the future of the Young Mens Institute Each member must exemplify an ambition and ear nestness in his work By ambition I do not mean momentary wishes fugitive longings but that deep absorbing desire which takes possession of your soul accompanies yon through the day and night is with you in your thoughts and like an unseen power you cannot escape and force you on to greater undertakings God has commanded every one to have a care for his neighbor so every member of the Young Mens Institute should use lice best endeavors to bring all Catholic slnto our Tasks that they may become promoters of Christian charity and luminous examples of what the accomplishingInrefgiopeducationand I the sacred truths of the Catholic church Mo matter what the form of government thee children of the Catholic faith are taught to believel that all lawful authority iia from God and tbat netyaaee to it ia rfifliMsNce toGod kiwMdf We art Use cowtrvaton of peace sad awed for the iirr established order of things hence we unfurl our banner to the world with the inscription Pro Deo Pro Patria For God For Country What nobler motto than that It epitomizes the love of God and country and the tCatholic laity organized into societies like this must form the bulwark against the rising tide of infidelity that Is inundating our land ANOTHER COUNCIL l Activity Among Catholic So cieties of St LOulsand Vicinity l The representative of the Kentucky Irish American met Mtj M Walsh a prominent young resident of East St Louis at Mackin Council club house last Sunday afternoon and from him learned that a new council had been organized there by the assistant pastor of St Pat ricks church with 105 charter members Meetings are held in the school building where a gymnasium has been fitted up with reading rooms and billiard tables attached As yet the council is independ ent of any jurisdiction but Supreme Sec retary OBrien has gone there and will attach it to that of Kentucky- Mr Walsh also stated that the Knights of Columbus are on a boom in East St Louis and the Worlds pair city and vicinity and are taking in additional members regularly The Knights of his city have purchased a building formerly used as a churcb which wijl be remodeled into a large and commodious club house The visitor expressed himself as pleased with what he saw and his treatment here OWES THE CITY Board of Equalization After Back Taxes on Parr Estate L The Board of Equalization of City Taxes made up of John McAteer Louts Stein and H B Bernard isVin session again The principal complaint before the board is that lodged by City Assessor Murphy against the estate of the late Daniel G Parr There is a wide discrepancy between the inventory the valua tion of Capt Parrs personal estate and the amount he returned to the City As sessor on his schedule every year It is contended that Capt Parrs estate owes the city at least J100000 in back taxes and it is for the Board of Equalization to say if this sequestered property is to be placed on the tax duplicate Capt Parr died a millionaire and left most of his estate to found a home for poor old women When parr first came to Louisville he peddle matches and sea shells on the levee It is said his proper name was Parero and that he was an Italian Old Italians say that they recall that Capt Parrs father was Italian and his mother was IrisCapt Parr started barrooms oh the steamboats run ning between Louisville and New Orleans and made a great deal of money Later he became a steamboat jpjyner Capt Parr died a member of the Baptist church though there seems tobe no doubt that he was raised a Catholic MISS BRYOR DEAD Miss Nellie Bryor aged twentytwo years residing with her mother at Elev enth and Delaware died qt an early hour Friday Her funeral will take place from St

Kelly Urges More General Study of Irish History DONATES USE OF TRINITY HALL New Albany Hibernians and their friends thronged Holy Trinity Hall Thursday night and were given an oratorical and musical treat of a very high order It must be said for the IrishAmericans of our sister city that they never do things on a small scale therefore whenever they announce an open meeting or social session the general public embraces the opportunity to be present For several weeks Chair man Con McBarron and his colleagues had been preparing for the event and right well they performed their duty Shortly after the arrival of the visitors from Louisville and Jeffersonville the Chairman called the assemblage to order and after the piano overture by William Powell introduced the speaker of the evening Hon Thomas Walsh who is a native of Indiana The applause that greeted his appearance was hearty and showed that his reputation as an orator had preceded him Mr Walsh prefaced his remarks with a nice compliment to the division on its large and representative membership and then dwelt at some length npon the prin ciples and motto of the order Friend ship Udity and Christian Carity say ing the Ancient Order of Hibernians kept their members true to the church and true to themselves His address was interesting throughout and was inter spersed with humorous anecdotes that convulsed his hearers Mr Walsh was eloquent in dealing with the good the grand old order accomplished for the individual members and the vast amounts expended for sick and other benefits The address was well received and thor oughly enjoyed Rev Father Kelly who was present paid a glowing tribute to Irelands poet Tom Moore who was the author of the Hibernian initiatory hymn He advised the Hibernians to study the history of Ireland and among other things told of the brilliant essays on the Emerald Isle prepared by the senior boys and girls of his parochial school Father Kelly also urged frequent open social meetings for the mothers wives sisters and sweet hearts of members and generously donated the use of the hall to the division for next St Patricks day When John Barry of the Kentucky Irish American was introduced the friends of the paper gave him a hearty greeting Mr Barry spoke in high terms of the officers and members and invited them to make use of the columns of this paper as often as they pleased Here they would always find the correct news of the order and it was his desire to have Division 1 of New Albany as prominent as any of the others in the Falls Cities A selection of popular American and Irish airs by William Powell and duets by Joe Bruns and Joe Pallon completed the splendid programme after which all were seated at tables and a great euchre contest ensued for handsome prizes The play Vas not completed when this report closed MACKINS ACTION Mackin Council Young Mens Insti tute of which the late John Keenehan was for years a member took appropriate action on his

Culled Prom Exchanges Thomas McGovern Nationalist mem ber of Parliament for the West division of Cavan died Wednesday at Cavan Lord Mayo wants twentyfour years purchase of second term rents for his Meathestate half of which is of poor and inferior quality That is something better than the 23 years purchase of first rent term rents for the Klldare estateIn connection with the effort now being made to get a correct list of the martyred Irish prelates it is interesting to know that one of the names which will come before the Commission is that of Malachy Shiel the abbot of the Abbey of the Yew which flourished in Newry up to the end of the sixteenth century and it is believed was destroyed about the year 1642 In view of the neglected condition of the grave of Tom Moore the Irish poet at Bromham in Wilts a committee of notable Irishmen has been formed headed by Justin McCarthy and Lord Ashbonrne the Lord Chancellor of Ire land for the purpose of promoting a memorial worthy of the poet It is sug gested that in addition to marking the grave with a suitable emblem a statue should be erected in Dublin Time has clearly shown that it was a wise move on the part of the Gaelic League to earmark one week in each year and that too the week in which the national festival occurs for the purpose of concentrating the attention of the people at large on the work which is being steadily carried oh for the revival of the old language of Erin and the pro motion of her literature art industry and kindred subjects admitted on all sides to be of vital interest to the well being of the nation There can be no mistaking says the Cork Examiner the exceptional decrease in the emigration this year The num bers who have left so far are considerably below those of any former year since Ireland began to part with its population The causes which have led up to the fall ing off in thiS years exodus are many but first and before all probably is that even Irishmen are beginning to realize that the conditions of life which prevail in the old country are far preferable to the awful struggle which the average unskilled laborer has to encounter in America and again America is fast becoming overrun with foreigners to such an extent that the wages hitherto paid are no longer the standard- A northern parish priest writing in a Belfast paper makes the excellent prac tical suggestion that Irish priests should purchase Irish poplin vestments and thus help forward the industrial move ment and give employment to Irish workers He calculates that there are at least 3000 churches and oratories in Ireland in each of which from ten to twelve sets of vestments are required and that the aggregate cost of all these must amount to over 100000 If that substantial sum was kept at home and spent in the manner indicated it would create a good deal of remunerative employment and assist very materially in checking the fatal drain of emigration Another good suggestion he makes for the benefit of the poplin industry is that Irish ladle of means should each buy the materials for one Irish poplin dress during this and the next few years and that our young men likewise should each buy one poplin tie for the furtherance of the same patriotic object- CATHOLIC KNIGHTS Drench 25 of the Caihollc Knights of America met this week in St Johns school hall and held the most spirited meeting of the year Several applica dons were pled and the members exhib ited a lively interest iia the grand old order of which this bra ehii a pioneer and the outlook is that tnere will
