Kentucky Will Have the Largest Gathering In Its Event ful History Indiana Hibernians Are Satis fled With Death Benefit r Feature A PEW REASONS FOR CONSOLATION Kentucky Hibernians will hold their State convention at Covington when three days of hard work will confront the delegates to that body In order to conform with the action of the national body many changes will have to be made in the State and county laws governing divisions and several of the Louisville delegates are giving earnest study to the changes made at St Louis The Coving ton division will made ample arrange ments for the entertainment of all who attend and from present indications it is safe to say the convention will be the largest and most important ever held by the order in Kentucky State President Keenan has been awaiting word from the Covington division and when seen on Wednesday stated that the call would soon be Issued Thus far there has been little talk as to who will be elected State officers but when the time comes it is probable that each county represented will be given a place on the State Board t Such action would be productive of good results and cement the friendly feeling that now exists Perhaps the most important question that will come before the Kentucky State convention will be that of the consolida tion of divisions referred to in theseI columns some weeks ago Our article on that subject has attracted widespread attention and brought forth the following from the Manchester Emerald In our estimation this consolidation question has many good points Besides those enumerated in the above article thuetistkege e lletfiiesgeulLpsbH j lem picnics balls etc Where there are several divisions in a city and each hold lag entertainments much work and ex pease is entailed that might be curtailed We number some 600 In Manchester and if we were united in one grand division how successful we could work together for the cause both as to membership and finance Ancient Order of Hibernian buildings would be more numerous inI this country today if members couldwork as a unit instead of being divided byI membership into several divisions One drawback to the accomplishment of this plan of consolidation is the question of representation at the State conventions Each division at the present time is en titled to five delegates which gives Man chester fifteen and if the divisions united five would be the delegate representation But a day is coming when strength of membership will regulate delegate repre sentation at conventions both county and State Other organizations have adopted this plan and it has proved most success ful as a means for increasing the mem bership In localities where there are two or three divisions none of them hav ing a membership of 200 and many having less than half of this number the consolidating of all could be accomplished with much benefit This con solidation question is worth considera tion in the localities where it is possi ble The eleventh biennial and twenty second State convention of the Hibernian divisions of Indiana will be held in Masonic Hall corner of Washington street and Capital avenue in the city of Indianapolis on Tuesday August 10 The headquarters for the delegates will be the Occidental Hotel This conven tion like that of Kentucky will be an important one Reports show a growth in membership especially in Jefferson ville and New Albany where the divis ions are in a flourishing condition The death benefit feature adopted two years ago has given satisfaction to the order throughout the State therefore there iis little prospect pf any change being made in its workings- At the last meeting of Division 1 of Jeffersonville John Kenney County President and Capt Jack Murphy County Vice President were elected delegates to the Indianapolis convention with President Robert Gleason and John A Kennedy as alternates Since then Capt Murphy has had to decline the honor as his services will be required by the Pennsylvania road during the Knights I of Pythias encampment here It is un derstood Robert Gleason will go in his placeNew Albany willsend as her delegates sI County President Richard J Fleming and Division President Dan Walsh These two cities are always ably represented and it would only be right that at 1least one of them be given a place on thet State Board If there is any change iin the Secretaryship the Kentucky Irish American would nominate James QHara for the place aa the services he hasI readered the New Albany Hibernian iin the past hoe shown him to be the

her Miss Mullaney had been slightly ill for about two months Two weeks ago she spending apparently being of great benefit But Tuesday there was a sudden change and despite all that loving hands could do and the best of medical attention she yielded up her innocent and sweet soul This estimable young woman will be sadly missed by her family and friends and hundreds of people throughout the city who knew and loved her in the past were deeply grieved to learn of her death The uncertainty of life was never more truly sudden almost entirely weir with the world hold lug out its brightest hppes but

JEFFERSONVILLE Hibernians Have Inaugurated a Spirited Contest For Prizes Division 1 A O H of Jeffersonville will give iits nineteenth annual picnic next Tuesday evening at Forest Park and from present indications it will be an immense gathering The Committee of Arrangements is headed by Alphonse Constantine who knows what is required to amuse a large body of people The division some weeks ago inaugurated two contests one for the men andone for the ladies the prizes being a gold pin and a gold ring These have assumed colossal proportions a spirited race being led by William Constantine and Edward Coy and Misses Irene Burns and Grace Maloney Allare popular and have many friends who will work for them till the last minute So great has the excitement become that hundreds will attend solely to see the prizes awarded Mike Breeu will have charge of the music and informs us that there will be many fine Irish selections The officer- and committees extend a cordial invita tion to their Louisville brethren and look for a large number to be with them Jeffersonville Hibernians have always been with the undertakings of the Louis ville divisions and have reason to expect the presence of

WHO WILL WIN Young Mens Institute Grand Council Convention at Lexington Much Interest Being Manifested in the election of Officers Barry Council Prepared to En tertain Delegates and Visitors DELEGATES WHO ARE CANDIDATES The Grand Council of the Young Mens Institute of the Kentucky jurisdiction will meet in annual convention this year at Lexington holding the first session on Sunday afternoon August 21 at the hall of harry Council For several months the members of the Lexington Council have been making preparation for the entertainment of the delegates and visitors of whom there will be at least 1000 as excursion trains carrying large numbers will be run from both Louis ville and Newport on Sundaymorning The three Louisville councils will take their handsome banners with them and also a band of music and the Louisville degree team will work the new ritual on a class of nearly a hundred This work will be done in the morning To be elected a grand officer of the Young Mens Institute is no small honor therefore there is much interest mani fested in the outcome of the different contests Of the different councils now comprising the jurisdiction there is scarcely one that will not present the name of at least one candidate which leaves the result in doubt and adds zest to the contest The races attracting the most attention just now are those for Grand President and Grand Secretary The candidates for the first named office are James B Kelly of Trinity Council this city the present incumbent and Dr Joseph A Reardon of Lafayette Council of Newport Both are competent men with big following in the order which predicttheaesulteThey either will make a good chief executive for the order Next in importance is the office of Grand Secretary for which a spirited contest is being urged by the supporters and friends of John Shannon of Barry Council of Lexington and George Lautz of Mackin Council of Louisville The latter has held the office for several years while the Bluegrass section has been content to go without office This is expected to prove a factor in the race which will be fiercely fought until the last vote is counted the day of the election There are thirteen positions to be filled therefore every council will be represented in the governing body This is as it should be and will do much to continue the interest now felt in the Young Mens Institute in Kentucky Grand Secretary Lautz has received the credentials from all the councils but three Barry of Lexington Chickasaw of Memphis and Clermont of Ashland They will be represented however and the

Days of Clay and Webster FATHER PHBLAHS TOUCHING WORDS Ex United States Senator George Graham Vest passed peacefully to his eternal reward Tuesday morning at his home at Sweet Springs Mo where he had been living since his retirement from public life A native of Kentucky Sen ator Vest was born at Frankfort on December 0 1830 and was graduated at Centre College Danville in 1848 After leaving Centre he attended the law department of the Transylvania Univer sity graduating tbere In 1853 In that year he moved to Missouri and began the practice of law la the central part of the State being elected a member of the Missouri House of Representatives and serving in that capacity in 1860 and 1861 During the civil war Senator Vest was an active sympathizer of the Confederate cause and was a member of the Confederate Congress He was elected to the United States Senate in the place of James Shields Democrat who had been chosen to fill out the term of Louis V Bogy Democrat taking his seat on March 18 1879 He was reelected in 1885 1890 and 1897 and it is more than probable that had he been able to be a candidate for another term he would have been elected again in 1903 At the time of his retirement from the Senate Senator Vest was in very bad health and in addition his eyesight was failing rapidly By his death Missouri has lost the brightest man who ever figured in her politics Senator Vests career was one of ever 1i gsp1esdoreua tilltt reackedst zenith in the last years of his last term in the Senate Since the time of Clay and Webster there has not been a man in the upper branch of our national legislature who challenged so much attention and so helped to direct legislation into wise and prudent channels There has not been a question before Congress for a quarter of a century in which Senator Vest has not been found on the right side Although a Senator from Missouri In the Confederate Congress his attitude towards the Federal Government all through the reconstruction period was honest and statesmanlike He was a Democrat but the silly issues into which the grand old party was from time to time drawn never found him an advo cate He was not a Greenbacker He was a very halting advocate of the unlimited coinage of silver While not favoring any extreme measures of the party he was always a good party man and the Democracy of his State swore by him to the last Even though broken down in health and unable to perform Senatorial duties he would have been elected two years ago if he had not pose itively refused the honor This is saying a great deal taken in connection with the fact that the legislature which elected Senator Stone could not be expected to appreciate the official integ rity of which Senator Vest was such a bright exemplar But there are men whose purity of life is so conspicuous that even the base must pay tribute to it It was during the sad years of the A P A movement that Senator Vest showed the stern stuff of which he was made Although the country Democracy were drawn into that movement the Senator never ceased denouncing it on the stump and in the press until he had uprooted the noxious weed from the soil of the State When Stone and Stephens and Dockery hearkened to the sirens song Vest steered clear of the dangerous coast and listened not to the strains of treason If the Catholics of Missouri are not now in the camp of the Republi cans it is owing to tile manly course of the greatest Democrat Missouri ever pro ducedIn writing of Senator Vests illness last week Rev Father Phelan paid him the following touching tribute which expresses the sentiments of Catholics everywhere In all matters affecting the Catholic religion Senator Vest has been our undaunted champion Whenever the Sisters wanted a friend they found one in the senior Senator from Missouri When the Catholics of New Mexico or any other part of the Union were assailed Senator Vest appeared as their defender When the Catholic Indian schools were made the subject of unjust and discriminating legislation by the Government Senator Vat undertook the defense of the old church her policy and her history and the words he uttered in our highest legislative halls will sot be for gotten while truth and eloquence are held in honor by that body And so manly wag this championship of the church that he not only won friends for liar but he compelled tHe respect even I maxIn I I PATRICK T SULLIVAN County President of the Ancient Order of Hibernians his entrance into that body until his final leave taking who enjoyed greeter respect among his colleagues We write these lines that Catholics everywhere in the land may at this hour of his final struggle remember Senator Vest in their prayers for he is not a Catholic It is sad to think that a man who has so many devoted Catholics among his friends and who has said so much good of the church should die without her pale Public men have no time for religion in the heyday of their political prosperity and they have little taste for it when they come to die But the grace of God is not limited by the perversity of man and prayer can work wonders We ask all our readers to pray for the conversion and happy soul of George G Vest We ask the priests to make a memento of our dear friend in their masses We ask the religious orders whose friend he was for a half century to pray for mercy on his sou- lSUPPRESSED Pool Rooms In County Closed by Judge Gregory and Operators Arrested By order of County Judge James P Gregory the pool rooms which have been operating Justt outside the city limits eu 3EtiT71evilla faJed ttviC this week and the operators who sold tickets were arrested and arraigned in court and gave bond to answer on August 18 when Judge Gregory will hear argu ments from both sides as to whether pool rooms can be operated in the county The court announced that raids would be made every day until the case was tried if the pool rooms were kept open Under the operations of a city ordinance the pool rooms in town were closed and the operators then went to the county Not withstanding the hard luck which patrons of the pool rooms had in the city they flocked to the county pool rooms as many as five hundred going at one time all anxious to bet and lose their money Judge Gregory announces that he in tends to break up the pool rooms and he doubtless has the power to do so The fight will be watched with interest In this connection it Is stated that all of the gambling houses which have been running on the quiet for sometime have suspended on orders from Chief of Police Gunther Those who desire to gamble must go to New Albany or Jeffersonville 00LABOR DAY o Unions Will Have An Imposing Demonstration and In dustrial Parade The Louisville Federation of Labor

Varied and Interesting Programme THE BIG WORLDS FAIR EXCURSION Harry Veeneman State President of the Catholic Knights of America in Ken tucky and State Secretary John J Score have issued the official call for the biennial convention of the Grand Council of that great Catholic fraternal insurance society now twentyseven years In existence The convention will be held in Newport the opening session taking place on Tuesday morning September 6 Heretofore the biennial conventions of the State Council have been held on the second Tuesday in September but in view of the fact that Tuesday September 13 has been set aside by the Worlds Fair as Catholic Knights day and also that the Louisville Central Committee would run a great excursion to St Louis for that occasion nearly all the branches in the State have petitioned the State Council to change the date of the meet ing which has been cheerfully done At the coming convention there will be a number of changes when the elec tion of officers takes place President Veeneman could be reelected but we understand he can not devote the time he thinks the office requires There 4 seems to be a sentiment to confer the office on some member of the Newport branch and if this is done the honor will doubtless go to Col Hoemer who is rat popular with the members throughout the State and is in every way qualified for the position John J Score who has so acceptably filled the position of State Secretary for several terms willnotbea 1Bndtdateagaif1 irrrienfnghim for the office of Supreme Trustee and base their claims for the honor on the work he has done for the order in whatever position he has been placed For the position of State Secretary the only candidate thus far announced is Albert F Martin of St Johns Branch this city and Secretary of the Central Committee Secretary Martin Is one of the older members of Branch 25 in which he has filled every office with the utmost fidelity He has also been an officer in the State Council and his wise counsel was of no smell value to that body For many years he has been with the Louisville Nashville Railroad Company rising step by step from a clerkship to law agent for the entire system His business calls him all over the State which would enable him to keep in close touch with all the branches and this is given as one of many excellent reasons for his selection which will be urged by the entire Louis ville delegation The gentlemen having charge of the excursion to the Worlds Fair are enthused t with the reports and letters received asking for tickets Secretary E J Mann wrote to the management of the American Hotel this week and it is probable that he will secure the special rate accorded the Knights for any length of time they may want to remain In St Louis This will prove a great advantage to many who are praising the Central Committee for its energy and enterprise Supreme Trustee Joseph McGinn and r Supreme Delegate Michael Reichert who have been attending the meeting of the Supreme Council called to readjust the assessment rate are expected home to morrow and from that time President Newton Rogers will see that everybody is kept busy working for the trip to the Fair regularemonthly session last night The pro ceedings will appear next week together with those of the Supreme Council and nthe new rate Delegates are making great preparation for attending the State Council and there will be much doing from now until the middle of next month that will interest all the members And the news will be found in these columns 0 WINNERS OP PRIZES The drawing for

UNION TRADES LABFl COUNCIL LOUISVILLE KY SATURDAY AUGUST 13 1904 CATHOLICITY IN INDIANA The announcement that the Right Reverend Bishop of Indianapolis is to build a new Cathedral recalls the fact that in the matter of missions the Catholics were nearly seventy five years ahead of any other de nomination in that State Catho lics built a log church in Vincennes In 1702 and many Indian converts assisted in its erection according to the Quebec annals published by the Jesuits The church was built of timbers set on end and the interstices filled with adobe It had no windowsa dirt floor and a rude altar The church door faced the fort ands this was the only opening Father Gibault who assisted Gen George Rogers Clark to reduce the British fort at Vincennes built the second log church Writing to the Bishop of Quebec in May 1785 he says tlA new log church 90x42 feet has been built and the old one has been fitted up for my pastoral residence This old church stood until 1849 when the present old brick Cathedral was built Afterward the See was removed to Indianapolis and it is now proposed to build a fine Cathedral there What a change has taken place in Indiana since the early Catholic pioneers blazed the way for civiliza tion and made it possible to live in the wilderness Indiana is now one of the great States of the Union and her Catholic population is constantly increasing but not so rapidly as It ought to increase Another historical fact which might be mentioned in this connection js that Congress on the petition of Bishop Carroll of Baltimore and indorsed by President Washing ton passed an act giving an an nuity to the church of 200 As far as known this is the only in stance of Congress voting money in aid of a church of any denomination in this country JUDGE PARKERsAcCEPTANCE Judge Parkers acceptance of the Democratic nomination for the Pres idency and his speech outlining the principles on which the party is expected to make the contest In November is a strong presentation off the Democratic side of the political controversy to be fought out at the pollsJudge Parkerii declaration that if elected he will only ask one term is a particularly strong point for him and will no doubt make him many votes Judge Parkers views on the tar iff expansion of territory the money question are in line wit the principles of Jefferson and the Democratic fathers There is no R doubt that Judge Parker will mak a strong race and that the Democrats will make the best fight they have made in twelve years THE COLORADO DISGRACE Walter Wellman the well known newspaper correspondent who iis the personal friend of President Roosevelt was sent to Colorado by the Chicago TimesHerald to write up the situation in that State Pre sumably the President and the National Republican Committee had a hand in sending him there Mr Wellman has begun an investigation and says he will write impar tially letting the blame rest where it belongs n In his first letter he says the issue in Colorado is Gov Peabody his troops his bull pens his Adjutant General and his deportation of miners and Presidential issues are notdiscussed in that State He suggests that the Federation of Western Miners and the Mine IJ U Owners Association appoint a joint commission which will make a re port to Congress at the winter ses sion after the election is over This gives the whole thing away Why not settle the matter now If the miners wait until after the election they will get nothing Well man admits that the conditions in Colorado are disgraceful and although he does not directly blame Peabody and Adjt Gen Bell he does not defend them The Czar of Russia was never guilty of such highhanded conduct as Peabody and Bell were guilty of in Colorado and as Wellman says the State will not go Republican unless something is done to satisfy the miners it looks very much like Peabody and Bell will have to come down off their high horses and even if they do it is doubtful if the Republicans can carry Colorado no matter what they do To wait until after the election to settle the trouble would be foolish on the part of the miners flORE SEWERS NEEDED Voters should post themselves as to the needs of the city in the mat ter of sewers Louisville has fairly good streets but it is woefully short on sewerage The present sewers are incapable of carrying off the surface water during a heavy rain and the result is that the cellars of many people are filled with water and offal after these rains This is particularly true of the southern part of the city In all the outlying districts there is inadequate sewer age It is impossible to have a clean or healthy city without a good sys tem of drainage and this Louisville has not got At the November election the question will be submitted to the people Are you in favor of issuing 3500000 for sewers and streets This is not a political question It is a question which concerns every man woman and child in the city Even if you have a sewer in your own neighborhood you should not be selfish enough to vote against your neighbor having one If the householders and property owners would look at this matter in the right way the vote would be unani mously in favor of the proposition It will be impossible to secure sew ers without a bond issue unless the tax rate is largely increased and this is out of the question It is right that the future generation should pay for the sewers which are built now and the issue of bonds is the only way out of the difficulty It is unfair to say that the money NewhOrleans spent 18000000 and Memphis 14000000 for new sew ers during the past few years and ethe result is that both cities haye been greatly benefited It is time for Louisville to go to the front in this important matter before an epidemic comes along and creates a more forcible reminder President Smith of the Louisville Nashville has promised to meet the city more than halfway in the matter of building a tunnel under the tracks of his company at Oak street He will pay more than half of the expense This dangerous grade crossing should be eliminated and the city authorities ought to hurry the work along The rail roads entering Louisville will some day be forced to abolish all grade crossings and the sooner they begin the work the better Indianapolis and Cincinnati have already begun the work of abolishing crossings at grades and Louisville should not be behind these cities in a matter of such grave iimportance Chicago has already spent about 20000000 IJu for the abolition of grade crossings The longer the Louisville roads put the matter off the more expensive it will be to them in the end Grade crossing must go City Assessor Murphy will begin work in a few days on the assessment for the year 1905 The ad valorem system will prevail the same as last year The proposition to change the taxing system so as to allow merchants and manufact urers to pay a lower rate and toI boost the assessment on real estat fell through and has been adjournedi till next year It is doubtful if the license system will be adopted nextt year The ad valorem system is th fairest that could be devised and to change to a license system would be unjust to a large part of the community The Kentucky Irish American is glad that it was the first paper to call attention to the inequalities of the proposed new system and did its share toward defeating the measure The Ancient Order of Hibernians in national convention assembled made a request that the Irish lan guage be taught in the parochial schools in the United States In a large city like Louisville where there are so many good scholars among the parochial school teachers it would not be difficult to find per sons capable of teaching Irish The text books are now furnished at reasonable prices and it is said children learn the language readily The Kentucky Irish American will agree to purchase the text books for the first parochial school in Louisville or in Kentucky which will start a class in Irish Now dont all speak at once but we hope some school in Kentucky will take up this offer What Louisville needs more than adything else now t help her along in a business way is more inter urban lines Electric lines ereate the traveling habit and people who came to town but once a month now come to the city almost daily since the Pewee Valley and the Jefferson town lines were bnilt An electric line to Fairfield and Bloomfield iin Nelson county from this city would pay from the start It iisI strange that monied men do not get together and build more electric lines to the city All progressive cities in the West are building them Even Lexington is ahead of Louisville in this important transportation matter Chairman Cowherd of the Con gressional Campaign Committeebas appointed Congressman James N Kehoe the member of the Congres sional Campaign Committee for Kentucky The selection of Con pressman Kehoe for this position fis an honor well bestowed Mr Kehoe is a talented man and a far seeing politician He was a candidate for Chairman of the Democratic State Central Committee at the late State convention but was defeated The honor of being at the head of the Congressional Committee for this State came to him unsought It goes without saying he will do good work Mayor Grainger is
