a s period of three years one can not but notice the great changes that have taken f place In the vicinity of South Louisville As day by day rolls on this beautiful wing of the city of Louisville strengthens its hold on prosperity It seems as only yesterday that the fields and ponds where could be heard the serenade of the birds and frogs have developed Into structures of different descriptions and sizes Tile Louisville Nashville Railroad c Company alone aroused an enthusiasm v sufficient to develop that vicinity Into a thriving settlement In Itself Standing out boldly with outstretched arms wait Ing to welcome Its thousands of em r ployes as they will soon daily enter into Its embraces can be seen the Louisville Nashville shops as an army of work men are preparing them for occupancy with the hope of their completion in a very short time One can not imagine until he has seen for himself the grandeur of these structures that have been developed from the molds of the brain ofI mechanical genius The Kentucky Wagon Manufacturing Company adjoining the shops of the L N occupies many acres of ground and is known as the largest concern of its kind in the world And next comes the Louisville Bolt and Iron Company which has been closed for the past year but Is expcted to re sume operations in the near future Another Important addition Is the new packinghouse with a capacity for the w al ugh erf6OQheadof livestock per day and the Central Stock Yards covering a large area and located just east of the L N tracks en the Louisville Southern railroad The C C Mengel Company and the Chess Wymond Cooperage Company which employ large bodies of men as well as a number of others In South Louisville ure also worthy of mention Grocery stores pleuty of saloons and a 1arge number of fine residences are now in process of erection and in a very short time the fields which have long beenI deserted will awake to civilization Streets are being cut through In RI places but it will begreat many regretted by large numbers to learn tbatI Wilder Park which for years has been the rendezvous cf the small boy In hisI daily jaunts in search of nuts which were there in abundance and its beauti ful scenery In many Instances the theme of the landscape artist will soon beii destroyed The beautiful flowers whose sweet fragrance filled the air in springtime and the large oaks and beeches that have for more than a century perhaps withstood the vicious attacks of wind and storm have at last yielded to the blow of the grub and axes of the body of laborers who are destroying these majestic subjects of nature in order to provide space fora street and with the passing of the summer so marks the passing of Wilder Park Schools have already been provided to accommodate the approaching body of children whose parents will take up their resilience in the vicinity of their work shops The School5 Board has estab lished a handsome school at Fifth and 0 streets and just one square east stands the splendid new parochial school con nected with Holy Name church The Rev Father John OConnor the zealous and beloved pastor is one worthy of high praise for the interest he has always and still takes in behalf of the little ones Much of his timeIs devoted its the education of the children and gratefully speaking he has succeeded In A measure far beyond the average Father OConnor has erected a school with all modern conveniences possible arid has secured the services of the best teachers obtainable He was also the first pastor to introduce instruction in the commercial branches In the parochial schools and deserves much credit as through his efforts the five graduates off Mast year have obtained remunerative positions and are giving entire satitfac tlon to their employers No reference to Catholic affairs in South Louisville would be complete wIthout including St Anthonys Society composed of the leading men of the Holy Name parish This society

DEATH Relieves Officer John Dolan From His Earthly Suffering Officer John Dolan who was shot last August and has since borne his sufferings with unexampled bravery died Tuesday morning at the City Hospital fully pre pared for the final summons and at peace with God and man Everything possible was done to save the brave fellows life but without avail Friday afternoon Do lans leg was amputated at the hip the bone having began decaying The shock was too great and Monday night he be came unconscious lingering till the fol lowing morning While the remains lay at the home on East Main street there was an almost continuous stream of callI ers to express sympathy for the bereaved wife and brother The funeral occurred Thursday morning and was one of the largest ever seen at St Michaels churchI Officer John Dolan was a native of County Galway Ireland but for fifteen years had been a resident of Louisville most of that time being employed as a special watchman at either the Gait House or Louisville Hotel Shortly after his appointment on the police force he was happily married and besides his young wife leaves one brother James Dolan and four sisters Misses Sarah Margaret Bridget and Katherine Dolan all of this city The deceased was a most exemplary Catholic faithful to every trust and devoted to his church and people He was a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Catholic Knights and Ladles of America and other frater nal insurance orders all of whom were largely represented at the funeral Though Officer Dolan had been on the police force less than a year he was considered by his superior officers as one of the most faithful and fearless men in the department and by none is his death moresncerelymonrped J than his fellow officers fCALLED ON THE POPE Mary Gwendolln Caldwell Is in Very Feeble Health Just Now A cablegram from Rome says that the Marquise de Monstlers de Merinvllle formerly Miss Mary Gwendolin Caldwell of Louisville recently had a private audi ence with Pope plus X The Pope it is stated told the marquise that he would pray for her daily and at parting pre sented her with a precious rosary bless ing it as be placed It in her hand The cablegram adds that the Holy Father isI anxious to effect a reconciliation between her and her husband In Vatican circles It is confidently hoped that in the near future the marquise will reconsider her decision In the meantime as soonI as the marquises health will permit of her leaving the hotel she will again beI received In private audience by the Holy FatherMonsignor Chatard Bishop of Indianapolis and Monsignor Brodrick Auxiliary Bishop of Havana have been asked by the Pope to use all their influence to induce her to return to the fold The marquise is staying at the Hotel Suisse in the Via Veneto and occupies the best suite of rooms opening on a beautiful terrace Here she spends nearly the whole day seated in her chair Her aunt Mrs Dpnnelly rarely leaves her Her medical attendant is a Scotsman Dr Sandison Brock formerly assistant dem onstrator of Edinburg He considers the marquises condition very serious as she Is half paralyzed hardly able to stand without assistance and affected with a progressive deafness which has now be come almost total NEW BASE BALL DEAL According to the daily papers Frank Shriner formerly Secretary of the Louis ville Base Ball Club has purchased an interest in the Kansas City team which was controlled by our local base ball magnate George Tebeau This step was taken by Tebeau con account of the hostility of the Kansas City press and public toward syndicate ball as furnished by him The sale to Shriner may be a bona fide one bat It brings forcibly to out mind the old adage of Abraham Lin coIn You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time but you cant fool all of the people all of the time I ANNUAL FESTIVAL The fatherless and motherless children who fiud warm shelter and a

to Bo Beatified January 8 Interesting Story of His LifeI Told by Rev Edward McSwoeney DIED ONLY FORTYFIVE YEARS AGOI A very interesting event will take place in Rome on January 8 next Pius X the first Pope in three hundred years chosen from the ranks of labor to this the first dignity in the world is going to beatify that is to raise to the honors of the altar another laborer the Cure dArs the first parish priest who remaining in this office till the end and dying a natural death obtains official recognition of sainthoodThis among the saints is a llegal act requiring long careful and ex pensive preliminaries such as taking of testimony regarding the life of the party salaries of clerks printing cor respondence fees of counsel honoraria of judges etc No one can be beatified no matter how holy his life mayseem to have been unless miracles are performed through hlt Intercession after his death and those miracles must stand the closest scrutiny made with the aid of medical and other specialists as to their exceeding the powers of nature and being refer able to God alone who thus testifies to the present holiness and entrance into glory of His servant and friend writes Rev Edward McSweeney of Mt St Marys College Emmettsburg Md The process in fact is so long so complicated and so costly that it is usually only organizations such as the Jesuits the Franciscans etc that can afford to pay for it and it is only they as- a rule who preserve the records and traditions of those of their members who have been remarkable for exceptional holinessl Nay even some pL jbose ordersastheyare calledTseemtooh ject to the distraction incidental to pro rooting the canonization of their heroes and so the rigid Carthusian monks though belonging as Cardinal Vaughan says to the highest state of contempla tlves have but few canonized saints and the great Benedictine order has had no saint canonized for 500 years nor the Sister of Charity during their1 glorious existence of two and a half centuries Be it as it may the poor lonely parish priest of a village has evidently slight chance of reaching this summit of earthly glory indeed some of us priests are now striving to raise enough to give our col league a decent sendoff and this with the fact that another parish priest the first in many centuries raised to the throne of Peter is the instrument in the case will I trust make a sketch of his career interesting to your readers John Baptist Viauney as he was called was of peasant birth and upbringing His character was excellent and he was admitted to study for the ministry but his talents were so inferior that he was thrice rejected by the examiners His moral qualities however were so highly spoken of that at last the Bishop con sented to ordain him and sent him as assistant to the pastor who bad strongly recommended his elevation to the priest hood His life was of the most heroic kind For forty years after assuming ipiritual charge of the little French vil lage he entered the small poor and Ill furnished church every morning at 2 oclock and remained therewith neces awry interruptions for outside duties praying preaching jand ministering to the spiritual wants 9fIi1Speople and of the multitudes that in the course 6f time came to him from all parts until 11 oclock at night The ceiling of the lit tle edifice is about fifteen feet high the width of the nave about twenty with some ten or fifteen feet extra oneither side under the clerestories where are four side chapels the length from doo to sanctuary rail about forty feet A little pulpit rises at the aide of the sanc tuary about six feet from the floor Thi always attracts the attention of priests and makes them realize the extrem- mortification of the cure who of course suffered more from the thick atmosphere the higher he was raised in the crowded and iIlventilated building- The sacristy off the left of the altar is a little room about eight feet square and iit was here that every day for forty years from before dawn to near midnight h heard confessions The confessionali still to be seen and he must have made it himself for a plainer and more un comfortable stool of repentance can not be imagined Those who knelt there verily began their penance before con teasing their sins and the holy man him self suffered as they did and more Yet the highest

Particular Attraction SERVICES AT PRINCIPAL CHURCHES Tomorrow is Christmas daythe day setapart by the church to celebrate the Nativity of Our Saviour It is the great estholy day in the year all things con sidered Some would contend for Easter Sunday and devout persons for various other holy days as being the greatest festivals but the majority young and old claim Christmas as the greatest fes tival in the church It is particularly a day when the children of all classes and conditions feel happy The tory of the birth of our Saviour in the manger ina stable and how wise men came to adore him has a fascination for all children whether they be Pagans or Christians The recital of the account of the birth of the Saviour also attracts the most hard ened sinner for it recalls to his mind the time when he was a child and perhaps listened to the recital from his mothers lips- Christmas is a day set apart for good feeling and good cheer among men For days and even weeks preceding it the streets in great cities are thronged with grown people and children making pur chases to gladden the hearts of their fel lows on Christmas day This has been the case in Louisville this season and tomorrow will be more generally observed than any previous Christmas in the history of the city The community has been prosperous The city has been free from pestilence or disaster of any serious kind during the year Even the Jew and the agnostic join in observing this Catholic holy day v Is the Cotholicrjhhe tgjl4oyer tomorrow the Feast of the Nativity will be observed with greater solemnityand decorum than for a long time The fact that the feast falls on Sunday will have a tendency to make its observance more general among the faithful In the city of Louisville in the thirtytwo Catholic churches solemn services commemora tive of the birth of our Lord and Saviour will be heard In some of the churches the services will be more elaborate than In others on account of the larger number of clergy assisting at the masses and the music but In all the churches after all the service is the same The same gospels and epistles are read in each It is well for each communicant to attend the mass at his own parish church Years ago it was the custom to have midnight masses but this practice has been discontinued in most dioceses and no midnight mass will be sung in the diocese of Louisville On Christmas day and on that day only Is a priest permitted to say three masses and most of the clergyavail themselves of this privilege on Christmas morning No Catholic should absent himself from mass on Christmas day and particularly tomorrow when the festival falls on Sunday Below is given an account of the con templated services in some of the principal congregations in the city The musical programme rendered at the high mass on Christmas morning at St Louis Bertrands church Is usually the inert in the city but this year a radical departure line been made In compliance with the wishes of the Pope the Very Rev Father Volz O P has arranged for a male choir to sing the Gregorian mass of the First Tone the Royal Mass by Henry Dumont The male choir under the direction of Prof Carl Hem mersbacb has made wonderful progress in the past few months while its con stantly increasing membership proves that it is comparatively easy to obtain male singers if but the proper effort is made A choir of acolytes will further add to the programmee particularly in the singing of the Adeste Fldelis THechoir will be composed of Mark Thome Will T McNally William Imorde Ben Imorde Henry and

place Tuesday night when Ben J Caplinger aged twentyfive years was run down and killed by a train at Thirteenth and Magnolia streets Ben Caplinger was one of the best known young men in the East End and had come home from North Carolina to spend the holidays with his parents Employed by the Old Poplar Distilling Company of Milton and being a young man of industry and good moral habits his employers decided upon his promotion and sent him a telegram asking what salary he would desire to take charge of one of their distilleries It was while on a mission to seek a friends advice that the angel of death laid its cold hand heavily on him but though the summons was sudden he was not found unprepared Just in the prime of a well spent life with a very bright future it is indeed a very sad deathIt is not known how the accident occurred by what train he was run down or the time though his watch bad stopped exactly at 930 His death will be a great loss to his many friends and employers as well as to the immediate family who survive He is survived by a father and mother five sisters Misses Margaret Florence Anna Mary Sarah and Leona and two brothers Stanley and William the latter being

Washington to Confer tibout- Philippines The Apostolic Delegate to the Philip pines Archbishep Algus has not yet departed from the United States for his new field of labor Monsignor Aigus was sent to Washington by the Propaganda to ooen negotiations with the Secretary of War regarding the affairs of the church in the Philippine islands As Secretary of War Taft has been in Panama Monsignor Aigus is awaiting his return to Washington City One of the matters which Monsignor Aigus was to bring to the consideration of the War Department was the restoring to the Bishops in the Philippine Islands the church property usurped by Bishop Aglipay and his followers ever since the organization of the schism It was thought here that as the churches and other property at present in possession of the schismatics had been the rightful property of the Roman Catholics in the archipelago for centuries it would be within the power of the Government officials in Washington to order their restitution to the authorities of the churchAnother important matter which Monsignor Aigus was charged to settle with partition amount by the Government for the sale of the friars lands between the religious orders which still have claim upon the money and the secular authorities of the church in the islands OFFICERS FOR KNIGHTS At the meeting of Branch 642 Catholic Knights of America held Wednesday night It was

CITY On nearly every Monday morn ing the daily papers give sermons preached the Sunday before by certain evangelical ministers in which the preacher roasts the qty government and pronounces Louisville the wickedest city in the whole universe These statements made by alleged doctors of divinity rein most cues sensational and in a few cajiea entirely false These attentionmr to themselves My things which sy could not IUblta DtI trt conducting ofltstioe political The teInj from the pulpit is wrong It is plain that certain Louisville ministers are doing so They do the city a great injury by having their statements published If their sermons did not get into the papers nobody would ever hear from them except the few who go to them churches on Sunday evening There is much wickedness in Louisville but the way to eradicate ii- is it not to get up into a pulpit and bear false witness against your neighbor even though that neigh bor be a city official or even saloon keeper Ministers of the gospel who want to uplift the wicked should go among them and speak kind words to them instead of standing up in a pulpit and talking at random about things they know nothing of except from hearsay Say a good word for the city of Louisville It is as good a city as any in the United States In no other city do the preachers parade the vices of their neighbors from the pulpit and no decent newspaper will lend itself to the publi cation of such rot as has appeared during the past few weeks from illadvised and notoriety seeking preachers ANNOUNCES FOR MAYOR President Barth r of the Board of Aldermen has officially announced that he is to be a candidate for Mayor of Louisville subject to the action of the Democratic party This opens up the canvass early and no doubt other candidates for Sheriff Jailer Aldermen and other important offices will soon announce The election next November is to be a very important one and it is well to know who will be in the running as early as possible in order that good men may be selected The Democrats can win only by placing a good ticket in the field Quite a number of excellent men have teen mentioned in connection with the various offices to be filled but Mr Barth Pres Ray for Assessor and Dr Harris Kelly for Cor6ner are the only formal announcements so far LETS HAVE A PRIMARY The coming election in Novem ber 1905 will be hotly contested by numerous candidates and their friends It behooves the Demo cratic party to put forward a strong ticket Hit expects to win The way to get a strong ticket is to make the nominations fairly and a primary election where every candidate will get a fair show is the best way to make them There are more than one or two candi dates for each of the principal offices such as Sheriff and County Assessor There has been some talk of framing up the nomina tions without any primary This can not be done with satisfaction to the rank and file It behooves those in authority to make arrangements for holding a primary at once Nothing else will be satisfactory to the party Whatever you do on Christmas day dont fail to try to make the children happy You doubtless remember yourself wheni you explored your stocking on Christ mas morning and how happy it made you to receive the smallest gift There are thousands of children in Louisville now waiting and hoping for a share in the joys of Christmas If you know of any

and family she moved to Louisville which has since been her home Five years ago her husband died at the age eightysix and Mrs Watson bore her bereavement with Christian fortitude With her daughter and

bidding them goodbye that she fell to the floor unconscious Medical aid was I summoned and every assistance possible rendered but the end to a useful and happy life had come Mrs Watson is survived by

WILL WIN Many Entries In Hlbernlan Contest For Four Gold Watches The contest inaugurated bj the County Board of Directors of the Ancient Order of Hibernians is now on in earnest and the question is who will win the gold watches offered as prizes to the members securing the largest number of candidates for the big initiation to take place on St Patricks day Four gold watches are offered one for each division and fifty dollars in gold to the division making the largest gain in new members The object of the County Board is to double the membership in Louisville and have a big initiation and celebration on St Patricks day Thus far the entries are Peter Cusick Mike Tynan and Dave OConnell from Division 1 Joe Lynch and others from Division 2 Michael Quinn President Patrick Welsh John Carman and John Riley from Division 3 and John Hen nessey and Frank McDonogh from Division 4 with a large number of others hard at work but saying nothing Pete Cusick has perfeted a strong organize tion with Joe Dougherty and Tom Riley as his managers and they declare they will not only win the watch for their man but also the money for Division 1 They hold meetings every week to receive reports and it is stated that last Sunday ten names were secured But this will not deter the others who feel that the field is a big one and that their chances will steadily increase as the contest progresses It will
